This Standard specifies requirements and recommendations for 75Ω broadband coaxial cabling, cables, cords, and connecting hardware that are used to support community antenna television (CATV, commonly referred to as cable television), satellite television, and other broadband applications. Allowed deployment topologies are the star topology defined in TIA‑568.0-D, bus and star topology, and multipoint bus topology. Also included are transmission requirements, mechanical requirements, and requirements related to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) for cabling, cables and connectors, cabling installation and connector termination procedures, and field testing procedures.

ANSI/TIA-568.4-D “Broadband Coaxial Cabling and Components Standard” was developed by the TIA TR‑42.7 Copper Cabling Subcommittee and published in June, 2017. Significant changes from the previous edition include:

  • Updated references

ANSI/TIA-568.4-D Content

  • Topology
  • Cabling
  • Series 6 and Series 11 Link Performance
  • Coaxial Cable, Cords, and Connecting Hardware
  • Field Test Requirements
  • Annexes addressing Background Information for Coaxial Cabling Requirements and Multipoint Bus

ANSI/TIA-568.4-D Recognized Cables

The recognized 75 Ω coaxial cables are:

  • Series 6 dual-*, tri- or quad-shield,
  • Series 11 dual-*, tri- or quad-shield,
  • Trunk, feeder, and distribution cable (refer to ANSI/SCTE 15 for examples of these types of cables), and
  • Braided multipurpose cable (refer to ANSI/SCTE 74 for an example of this type of cable).

* Dual-shield  coaxial cable construction is commonly referred to as single tape and braid.
