This first edition 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‑C.0, 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-C.4 “Broadband Coaxial Cabling and Components” was developed by the TIA TR-42.7 Copper Cabling Subcommittee and published in July, 2011. This Standard consolidates information from the Residential (RG6 & RG59) and Data Center (Type 734 & 735) Standards.
