Keeping Standards up-to-date


Standards are living documents which reflect progress in science, technology and systems. To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, and new editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued. Standards may also be withdrawn. It is important that readers assure themselves they are using a current Standard, which should include any amendments which may have been published since the Standard was purchased. Detailed information about joint Australian/New Zealand Standards can be found by visiting the Standards Web Shop at www.standards.com.au or Standards New Zealand web site at www.standards.co.nz and looking up the relevant Standard in the on-line catalogue. Alternatively, both organizations publish an annual printed Catalogue with full details of all current Standards. For more frequent listings or notification of revisions, amendments and withdrawals, Standards Australia and Standards New Zealand offer a number of update options. For information about these services, users should contact their respective national Standards organization. We also welcome suggestions for improvement in our Standards, and especially encourage readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies or ambiguities. Please address your comments to the Chief Executive of either Standards Australia or Standards New Zealand at the address shown on the back cover.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 02286.

PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand Committee CT-001, Communications Cabling for Commercial Buildings to supersede AS 3084-1993. This Standard incorporates Amendment No. 1 (May 2007). The changes required by the Amendment are indicated in the text by a marginal bar and amendment number against the clause, note, table, figure or part thereof affected.
A1

This Standard is an adoption with national modifications and has been reproduced from ISO/IEC 18010:2002 and ISO/IEC 18010:2002 Amendment 1:2005 and has been varied as indicated to take account of Australian/New Zealand conditions. The objective of this Standard is to assist architects, planners, designers, engineers, builders, installers, maintenance personnel, building owners, managers and users in the planning of physical pathways and spaces in and between buildings to accommodate the equipment and cabling infrastructure necessary for communications. As this Standard is reproduced from an International Standard, the following applies: (a) (b) (c) Its number does not appear on each page of text and its identity is shown only on the cover and title page. In the source text this International Standard should read this Australian/New Zealand Standard. A full point should be substituted for a comma when referring to a decimal marker.

References to International Standards should be replaced by references to equivalent Australian or Australian/New Zealand Standards, as follows: Reference to International Standard ISO/IEC 11801 Information technologyGeneric cabling for customer premises Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 3080 Telecommunications installations Integrated telecommunications cabling systems for commercial premises

The terms normative and informative have been used in this Standard to define the application of the appendix to which they apply. A normative appendix is an integral part of a Standard, whereas an informative appendix is only for information and guidance. The normative Appendix ZA has been added to the Standards main body of text to align this document with the Australian telecommunications and building construction regulatory environment. In New Zealand all references to any and all Australian documents shall be considered informative only where no equivalent New Zealand Standard is noted. Appendix ZB provides design procedures and construction practices which can be referenced in project specific construction contract documents created by Australian and New Zealand users of this document. Much of the information has been updated from AS 30841993. AS 30841993 was developed from EIA/TIA-569-A, Commercial Building Standard for Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces. This USA Standard was developed with the support of the American Institute of Architects and the Construction Specifications Institute, since it influences both the design and construction of commercial buildings, where various building components are to be structured into facilities which are responsive to telecommunications needs. Appendix ZC provides guidelines and practical examples for some of the topics covered in Appendix ZB. The material in Appendix ZC has been updated from Appendix A in AS 30841993.

iii
It should be noted that this Standard has a special relationship to AS/NZS 3080, Telecommunications installationsIntegrated communications cabling systems for commercial premises. It recognizes that both building cabling and architectural provisions of the building into which such cabling systems are installed need to be standardized. In Australia a useful supplement to this Standard is AS/ACIF S 009 which details mandatory installation requirements for customer cabling in Australia, where installations are to be connected to telecommunications carrier networks. AS/NZS 3000, Electrical installations (known as the Australian/New Zealand wiring rules) contains general requirements for cabling pathways within buildings. In Australia only, AS/ACIF S 008, Requirements for authorised cabling products, and AS/ACIF S 009 Wiring rules provide mandatory requirements for telecommunications cabling products, including telecommunications conduit and pits.

INTRODUCTION
The telecommunications infrastructure is an integral part of building design. It may include voice, data, environmental control, security, audio, television, sensing, alarms, paging and other low voltage and power limited signal systems. These systems are subject to frequent changes. Design of the pathways and spaces should accommodate this dynamic behaviour. This Standard significantly influences the design of other building services, such as electrical power and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). ISO/IEC 18010 generally makes no specific recommendations among the design options available for telecommunications pathways and spaces. For example, the choice between a conduit system versus a tray system is not delineated. It is up to the telecommunications designer to properly select among the options based upon the applications at hand and the constraints imposed.

This standard generally imposes no specific requirements for the dimensions of pathways and spaces. The reader should refer to

local regulations and standards, telecommunications service providers rules, manufacturers guidelines.

PATHWAYS AND SPACES FOR CUSTOMER PREMISES CABLING

This International Standard specifies the structure and requirements for pathways and spaces within or between buildings for information exchange and telecommunications cabling according to ISO/IEC 11801 and ISO/IEC 15018. This International Standard also influences space allocation within the building. Both singleand multi-tenant buildings are considered by this Standard.
