The aim of the national standard is to develop technical and functional guidelines for vertical cabling in new and existing multi-family residential buildings and mixed-use buildings (multi-family and commercial).
A new national norm
ILNAS/TC 108 TECHNICAL COMMITTEE
“Telecommunications cabling techniques”
MyConnectivity G.I.E. has teamed up with ILNAS (‘Institut luxembourgeois de la normalisation, de l’accréditation, de la sécurité et qualité des produits et services) to draw up a national standard that will serve as a reference for carrying out vertical cabling work in residential buildings, for the benefit of citizens, businesses and service providers.
The aim of this new standard is to contribute to improving the infrastructure of Ultra-High-Speed networks in Luxembourg by harmonising the technical and functional requirements for vertical cabling in old and new buildings, concerning the following aspects:
- Network topologies and sizing;
- Dimensions of technical cabinets;
- Power supplies;
- Cable types;
- Numbering/ identification;
- Routing/ ducts;
- Co-existence of communications technologies (copper, fibre optics, coaxial, mobile).
