This International Standard specifies both balanced copper (Classes A, B, C, D, E, EA, F, and FA) and optical fibre (OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, OS1, and OS2) cabling systems, and is targeted at the general office environment.  This Standard specifies the structure and minimum configurations of generic cabling, performance requirements of channels, links and components, implementation requirements, conformance requirements and verification procedures, and interfaces.

ISO/IEC 11801 Edition 2.2 “Information Technology – Generic Cabling For Customer Premises” was developed by subcommittee 25: Interconnection of information technology equipment, of ISO/IEC joint technical committee 1: Information technology.  This Standard consolidates information from the second edition (2002) of ISO/IEC 11801, its Amendment 1 (2008), its Corrigenda 1 (2002) and 2 (2002), and its Amendment 2 (2010).  ISO/IEC 11801 Edition 2.2 was published June 2011.

Significant changes from the previous edition include:

  • This consolidated version has identical technical content to the base edition and its amendments.  This Standard has been prepared for user convenience
