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



Reference FprEN 62657-2:2013
Title Industrial communication networks - Wireless communication networks - Part 2: Coexistence management
Project Number 24452
Abstract/Scope IEC/TS 62657-2:2011(E) specifies the fundamental assumptions, concepts, parameters, and procedure for wireless communication coexistence. It provides guidelines, requirements, and best practices for wireless communications' availability and performance, covering the life cycle of wireless communication coexistence to help the work of all persons involved with the relevant responsibilities to cope with the critical aspects in each phase of wireless communication coexistence management in an automation plant. Additionally it provides a common point of reference for wireless communication coexistence for industrial automation sites as a homogeneous guideline to help the users assess and gauge their plant efforts. Life cycle aspects include: planning, designing, installation, implementation, operation, maintenance, administration and training.

Superseded by  
Normative reference (6)  

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
