Administration Standard for Telecommunications Infrastructure
|Publication Date:||22 June 2012|
This Standard specifies administration for a generic telecommunications cabling system that will support a multi-product, multi-vendor environment. It also provides information that may be used for the design of administration products.
This Standard provides a uniform administration approach that is independent of applications, which may change several times throughout the life of the telecommunications infrastructure. It establishes guidelines for owners, end users, manufacturers, consultants, contractors, designers, installers, and facilities administrators involved in the administration of the telecommunications infrastructure.
Use of this Standard is intended to increase the value of the system owner's investment in the infrastructure by reducing the labor expense of maintaining the system, by extending the useful economic life of the system, and by providing effective service to users.
The concepts outlined in this standard may be extended to other applications (e.g., building automation systems, security, and audio/visual) that are in harmony with the telecommunications topology.
