International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 50700:2014
Title Information technology - Premises distribution access network (PDAN) cabling to support deployment of optical broadband networks
Project Number 23541
Abstract/Scope This European Standard specifies the optical fibre access network cabling within multi-subscriber premises (which may comprise single or multiple buildings) and intended to support deployment of optical broadband networks. The cabling within the subscriber space for onward distribution of services beyond the customer premises equipment is not specified. Cabling defined by this standard supports a wide range of broadband applications delivering services including voice, data, text, image and video. This European Standard specifies: a) the structure and configuration of the optical fibre cabling; b) cabling performance requirements; c) implementation options. Safety (electrical safety, optical safety and protection, fire, etc.) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this European Standard and are covered by other standards and regulations. However, information given in this European Standard may be of assistance in meeting these standards and regulations.
