This Standard covers station wire intended primarily for application on the premises of communications users. The wire is intended for use between the point of demarcation (the network interface devicelprotector) and the telephone termination device within single and multi-family dwellings. Materials, construction and performance requirements are included in the Standard, together with applicable test procedures.
The purpose of this Standard is to establish generic technical requirements that may be referenced by individual telecommunications wire specifications covering thermoplastic insulated and jacketed station wire products for indoorloutdoor application.
Because this Standard does not cover all details of individual wire designs, it cannot be used as a single document for procurement of product. It is intended to be used in conjunction with an individual product specification that provides complete design details for the specific wire type and designates the applicable performance requirements. Such individual product specifications may be prepared either by the user or the manufacturer. The procurement specification is left to the discretion of the user of this Standard.
