Reference EN 50407-3:201X
Title Multi-pair cables used in high bit rate digital access telecommunications networks - Part 3: Indoor multi-pair/quad riser cables up to 100MHz for maximum length of connection 100m supporting universal services, xDSL and applications up to 100 Mbit/s over IP
Project Number 22897
Abstract/Scope This European Standard defines indoor multi-pair/quad cables for installation in Multi Dwelling units shaft supporting universal services, xDSL and applications up to 100 MBits over IP, their relative definitions and requirements. NOTE Higher bit rate applications need cables specified in a relevant part of EN 50406 or EN 50288 series. It covers cables, with an overall screen, with performances up to 100 MHz, to be used in indoor networks intended to connect the broadband outside plant to the individual customer dwelling for applications 100Mbit/s over IP maximum length of connection 100m. The electrical, environmental, mechanical and transmission performance characteristics of the cables, related to their reference test methods, are detailed.
