Paper Abstract

Recognition of the impact of the emerging North American Standard for building wiring is growing rapidly. The standard-ization of topology, distances, media, number of crossâ€"connects and connector loss define a physical and performance template for the design of future communication systems. A study was completed in June 1989 by ISO/IEC, JTC 1, SC 25 which proposes that work commence on an International Standard for building wiring. This paper describes the building wiring standard and addresses the use of fiber in the backbone and to the desktop.
