When it comes to cabling standards, you’ve probably heard of channel standards and component standards. The two are not one and the same, so we thought it might make sense to explain the difference, why you should care and how they are tested.

In our last article on how to connect end devices beyond copper Ethernet’s 100 meter range, we looked at various solutions to the dilemma of needing to connect an end device that’s just a little too far from the nearest telecommunications room (TR), including building a new TR, the use of an extender device, fiber or extended-distance cabling.

It’s a common problem – you need to connect an end device that’s just a little too far from the nearest telecommunications room (TR). While industry standards limit the length of a channel to 100 meters, connecting the device maybe require a channel length of 150 meters or even 200.
There are four ways to address this problem. Let’s take a look at the options and their pros and cons.

Planet IRM and Fluke Networks have integrated LinkWare Live into the Planet Infrastructure Relationship Management software solution, allowing customers to access detailed cable test results from their physical asset network diagrams, providing a view we like to call “from network map to wiremap”. We asked the team at Planet to introduce their solution and the benefits of the integration – their article is below.

Обновление IEC 61280-4-1, ред. 3, измерение многомодовых затуханий для установленной кабельной системы
IEC and other organizations, such as TIA, routinely reaffirm standards every few years. Reaffirmation is a way for subcommittees to decide if a standard is “dated” or still applicable to current times. Technology and market needs change often which drive standards to change. IEC 61280-4-1 edition 2 was in such a cycle several years ago and it was decided an edition 3 was needed.

If you're at all familiar with copper cable, you've probably heard about crosstalk--the phenomenon by which a signal transmitted on one pair or one channel creates an undesired affect on another pair or channel.
