This European Standard is applicable to all types of information technology cabling inside buildings (and may be applied to cabling that is defined as part of the building) including generic cabling systems designed in accordance with the EN 50173 series. The requirements of Clauses 4, 5 and 6 of this standard are premises-independent unless amended by the requirements of premises-specific clauses. This European Standard: 1) details the considerations for satisfactory installation and operation of information technology cabling; 2) describes the methodology for the assessment of spaces, pathways (and pathway systems) and cabling (either installed or planned) in support of remote powering objectives; 3) excludes specific requirements applicable to other cabling systems (e.g. power supply cabling); however, it takes account of the effects other cabling systems have on the installation of information technology cabling (and vice versa) and gives general advice; 4) excludes those aspects of installation associated with the transmission of signals in free space between transmitters, receivers or their associated antenna systems (e.g. wireless, radio, microwave or satellite). This European Standard is intended for application within commercial and residential premises. This standard is applicable to certain hazardous environments. It does not exclude additional requirements which are applicable in particular circumstances, defined by e.g. electricity supply and electrified railways. 1.2 Conformance For a cabling installation to conform to this European Standard: a) the planning of the installation shall meet the requirements of Clause 4; b) the installation practices shall meet the requirements of Clause 5; c) the additional requirements of the applicable premises-specific clause shall be met; d) the bonding system within the premises shall be in accordance with EN 50310; e) where a lightning protection system is required, it shall conform to the “integrated lightning protection system" according to EN 62305-4; f) other lightning protection systems, including the “isolated lightning protection system” according to EN 62305-3 are allowed provided that specific restrictions are applied both to the implementation of the information technology cabling and the requirements of EN 50310 as agreed between the planners of the lightning protection system and the information technology cabling; g) local regulations shall be met. The responsibilities for specific elements of conformance may be made by national-specific amendment of Annex B.

This draft Technical Report describes a grading system applicable to telecommunications cabling within homes which provides a range of implementation solutions to support both non-simultaneous and simultaneous provision of applications incorporating: a) a cabling structure in accordance with, but less complex than that of, EN 50173-4 and with defined connecting hardware pin assignment for certain applications; b) components meeting or exceeding the requirements of EN 50173-4; c) shorter cabling channels than those specified in EN 50173-4. Safety (electrical safety and protection, optical power, fire, etc.) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this Technical Report and are covered by standards and regulations. However information given in this Technical Report may be of assistance in meeting these standards and regulations.

This Technical Report a) specifies the transmission performance for channels to support 10 GBASE-T as specified in IEEE 802.3an, b) specifies the methods to assess whether installed Class E and Class F channels meet IEEE 802.3an requirements, c) provides mitigation techniques to improve the performance of an existing installation to meet the IEEE 802.3an requirements. NOTE 1 The channel transmission performance specified in this TR is derived from IEEE 802.3an. NOTE 2 IEEE 802.3an specifies requirements beyond the frequency range specified for EN 50173 1:2007, Class E, and additional parameters to those specified for Class E and Class F cabling in EN 50173-1:2007. NOTE 3 This Technical Report does not re-specify the requirements for Class E and Class F channels of EN 50173-1:2007.

This document addresses the physical security of data centres based upon the criteria and classifications for “availability”, “security” and “energy efficiency enablement” within EN 50600 1. This document provides designations for the data centres spaces defined in EN 50600 1. This document specifies requirements and recommendations for those data centre spaces, and the systems employed within those spaces, in relation to protection against: a) unauthorized access addressing organizational and technological solutions; b) intrusion; c) fire events igniting within data centres spaces; d) environmental events (other than fire) within the data centre spaces which would affect the defined level of protection; e) environmental events outside the data centre spaces which would affect the defined level of protection. NOTE Constructional requirements and recommendations are provided by reference to EN 50600 2 1. Safety and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this document and are covered by other standards and regulations. However, the information given in this document can be of assistance in meeting these standards and regulations.

This document: a) specifies the Energy Reuse Factor (ERF) as a KPI to quantify the reuse of the energy consumed in the data centre; b) defines the measurement, the calculation and the reporting of ERF; c) describes the application of ERF and its discrimination from Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE). The ERF does reflect the efficiency of the reuse process, which is not part of the data centre.
