ANSI/TIA-568.1-D contains requirements that facilitate the planning and installation of a structured cabling system in a commercial building environment. The structure for commercial building cabling is based on the generic cabling system structure specified in TIA-568.0-D. Performance and technical criteria for balanced twisted-pair cabling systems are specified in TIA-568-C.2. Performance and technical criteria for optical fiber cabling systems are specified in TIA-568.3-D.
ANSI/TIA-568.1-D “Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling” was developed by the TIA TR-42.1 Telecommunications Cabling Systems Subcommittee and published in September, 2015. Significant changes from the previous edition include:
