Description / Abstract:


This Addendum specifies minimum requirements for this optical fiber telecommunications cable used within a commercial building and between buildings in a campus environment.

In addition to the requirements specified in this Addendum, this cable shall meet all of the requirements of ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.3 and any of its respective addenda. This addendum provides requirements for multimode cable with higher performance over other multimode cable specified in ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.3 and recognizes advances in cabling and optical transceiver technology, particularly technologies based on vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs).


This Addendum specifies additional component and transmission requirements for a 50/125 μm optical fiber cable capable of supporting 10 Gb/s serial transmission up to 300 m (984 ft) using 850 nm nominal wavelength lasers. These cables are suitable for use in accordance with ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.1.
