European foreword

This document (EN 50173-6:2018) has been prepared by CLC/TC 215 “Electrotechnical aspects of

telecommunication equipment”.
The following dates are fixed:
• latest date by which this document has (dop) 2019-03-19
to be implemented at national level by
publication of an identical national
standard or by endorsement
• latest date by which the national (dow) 2021-03-19
standards conflicting with this document
have to be withdrawn
This document supersedes EN 50173-6:2013.

The European Standards EN 50173:1995 and EN 50173-1:2002 have been developed to enable the

application-independent cabling to support ICT applications in office premises. Their basic principles,

however, are applicable to other types of applications and in other types of premises.

Therefore, CLC/TC 215 has established relevant European Standards which address the specific

requirements of these premises. In order to point out the commonalities of these cabling design standards,

these European Standards are published as individual parts of the EN 50173 series, thus also acknowledging

that standards users recognize the designation “EN 50173” as a synonym for generic cabling design.

At the time of publication of this European Standard, EN 50173 series comprises the following standards:

EN 50173-1 Information technology — Generic cabling systems — Part 1: General requirements

EN 50173-2 Information technology — Generic cabling systems — Part 2: Office spaces

EN 50173-3 Information technology — Generic cabling systems — Part 3: Industrial spaces

EN 50173-4 Information technology — Generic cabling systems — Part 4: Homes

EN 50173-5 Information technology — Generic cabling systems — Part 5: Data centre spaces

EN 50173-6 Information technology — Generic cabling systems — Part 6: Distributed building

services

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. CENELEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

This edition of EN 50173-6:

a) introduces new components 8.1 and 8.2 for balanced cabling to support new channel Classes I and II as

well as optical fibre cabling (OM5) as defined in EN 50173-1:2018;
b) revises Annex B on services and applications;

c) revises Annex D on optical fibres used in the Type B service distribution type cabling system;

d) aligns the document structure across the EN 50173 series and updates the document both technically

and editorially.

Introduction

The importance of cabling infrastructure is similar to that of other fundamental utilities such as water and

energy supply and interruptions to the services provided over that infrastructure can have a serious impact. A

lack of design foresight, the use of inappropriate components, incorrect installation, poor administration or

inadequate support can threaten quality of service and have commercial consequences for all types of users.

This standard specifies generic cabling for distributed building services and can be used as a stand-alone

infrastructure or in conjunction with all the space-specific standards of the EN 50173 series.

It has been prepared to reflect the increasing use of generic cabling in support of non-user specific services

and the sharing of information between such services, many of which require the use of remote powered

devices. The distribution of these services is implemented either as a stand-alone structure and configuration

or as an overlay provided to locations other than those specified by space-specific standards in the

EN 50173 series.

This standard is not intended to replace the application of other space-specific standards in EN 50173 series

but has been prepared in recognition of the fact that, although certain functional elements of distributed

building services cabling can be co-located with those of other generic cabling infrastructures, it can be:

— specified, installed and operated by different entities than those responsible for other generic cabling

infrastructures that are be installed within the premises;

— specified and installed at a different time than other generic cabling infrastructures that are be installed

within the premises.

Figure 1 and Table 1 show the schematic and contextual relationships between the standards produced by

TC 215 for information technology cabling, namely:
1) this and other parts of the EN 50173 series;
2) installation (EN 50174 series);
3) bonding (EN 50310).

In addition, a number of Technical Reports have been developed to support or extend the application of these

standards, including:
— CLC/TR 50173-99-1, Cabling guidelines in support of 10 GBASE-T;

— CLC/TR 50173-99-2, Information technology — Implementation of BCT applications using cabling in

accordance with EN 50173-4;

— CLC/TR 50173-99-3, Information technology — Generic cabling systems — Part 99-3: Home cabling

infrastructures up to 50 m in length to support simultaneous and non simultaneous provision of

applications.

In addition, a number of cabling design standards have been developed using components of EN 50173-1

(e.g. EN 50098 series and EN 50700).
