Customer-owned outside plant cabling is defined as the cabling installed between buildings or points in a customer-owned campus environment. Customer-owned campus facilities are typically termed “outside plant” (OSP).
ANSI/TIA-758-A Customer Owned Outside-Plant Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard” was developed by the TIA TR-42.4 Outside Plant Subcommittee and published in May, 2004. This Standard specifies requirements for telecommunications pathways and spaces, cable, connecting hardware, and bonding and grounding systems to support a wide range of IT applications (e.g., voice, data, video, alarm, environmental control, security, audio).
