IEC 61156-13:2023 describes cables intended to be used for transmission of 10 Mbit/s over a single twisted pair and distances of up to 1 km. The transmission characteristics of these cables are specified up to a frequency of 20 MHz and at a temperature of 20 °C. Depending on the MICE environment and the installation conditions, either unscreened or screened cables can be used. Furthermore, to consider different maximum transmission lengths, two sets of requirements are specified. The cable type A-1000 is a design supporting up to 1 km channel length while the cable type A-400 is supporting up to 400 m channel length. A blank detail specification can be found in Annex A.
The cables covered by this document are intended to operate with voltages and currents normally encountered in communication systems. While these cables are not intended to be used in conjunction with low impedance sources, for example the electric power supplies of public utility mains, they are intended to be used to support the delivery of DC low voltage remote powering applications.

IEC 62807-3:2023 is a sectional specification for outdoor hybrid communication cables intended to be used externally in various applications. It specifies terms, definitions, symbols and abbreviated terms, the design and construction, rated values and characteristics, performance requirements and test methods, packaging and quality assurance.
Hybrid cables are designed for networks and customer premises cabling that transmit data, telecommunication, instrumentation, control and signalling services over optical fibres and/or broadband data over coaxial element, wire/pair/quad element and can have the option of supplying electrical current to a remote equipment.
In the IEC 62807 series, the current carrying elements are used only to supply power to the equipment within the communication network. They are not used for electricity distribution or transmission, nor for power supply to domestic appliances. The specific uses are defined in the relevant specification.
The relationship between each of the MICE classifications in ISO/IEC 11801-1, performance requirements and test methods of hybrid cables being proposed in a specific application are fully considered and aligned.

ISO/IEC 14763-2 recommends installation methods which,together with this Technical Report, provide guidelines for improving safety during fire. The recommendations also take into account legislation and regulation applicable to the fire performance of cables, an assessment of known test methods and their ability to measure the recommended fire performance. Power cables are usually segregated from communication cables for electrical safety and installed differently so they have not been addressed in this Technical Report.

IEC 61156-4:2009(E) is a sectional specification and relates to IEC 61156-1:2002. The cables are specifically intended for riser wiring up to category 5 (class D) as defined and specified in ISO/IEC 11801:1995. It defines individually screened or unscreened pairs/quads cables, with or without overall common screen. When installed vertically extra length requirements may be applicable and are defined in the relevant specifications. This edition constitutes a technical revision. The main changes can be found in subclauses 3.3.1.2, 3.3.2, 3.3.4, 3.3.5, 3.3.5.1, 3.3.5.2, 3.3.6 and 3.4. This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 61156-1:2002.

IEC 61156-5:2009(E) describes the cables intended primarily for horizontal floor wiring as defined in ISO/IEC 11801. It covers individually screened, common screened and unscreened pairs or quads. The transmission characteristics and the frequency range of the cables are specified at 20 °C. Those cables are intended to be used to support the delivery of low voltage and power applications such as IEEE 802.3af (Power over Ethernet) and IEEE 802.3at (Power over Ethernet Plus). This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- new requirements for new Cat6A and Cat7A cables;
- revised requirements and tests for Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat7 cables. The contents of the corrigendum of February 2010 have been included in this copy. This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 61156-1:2002.

IEC 61156-3:2008(E) defines individually screened, common overall core screen and unscreened pairs or quads in cables for work area wiring. These cables are suitable for the various communication systems for which the reference is given in the relevant detail specification. The cables covered by this sectional specification are intended to operate with voltages and currents normally adopted for communication systems. These cables should not be connected to low impedance sources, for example, the public mains electricity supply. The cables are specifically intended for work area wiring as defined in ISO/IEC 11801. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2003. This edition constitutes a technical revision and includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) new requirements for new cables Cat3, and Cat5 applications;
b) a better numbering in order to take into account the generic specification.

Describes symmetrical pair/quad cables intended for working area cabling in class D, E, EA, F and FA channels (Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6A, Cat 7, Cat 7A) as defined in ISO/IEC 11801 and ISO/IEC 24702. Includes additional recommended environmental characteristics and severities, which are derived from the environmental classifications that are specified for cabling for industrial environments. includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) new requirements for new cables Cat6A, Cat7A for 10 GBase-T applications; b) revised requirements and tests for the cables
