Description / Abstract:

This Standard specifies administration systems for telecommunications infrastructure within buildings (including commercial, industrial, residential, and data center premises) and between buildings. This infrastructure may range in size from a building requiring a single telecommunications space (TS) and associated elements, to many TSs and associated elements in multiple campus locations. This Standard applies to administration of telecommunications infrastructure in existing, renovated, and new buildings.

This Standard addresses the administration of telecommunications infrastructure by:

a) assigning identifiers to components of the infrastructure

b) specifying elements of information that make up records for each identifier

c) specifying relationships between these records to access the information they contain

d) specifying reports presenting information on groups of records

e) specifying graphical and symbolic requirements


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.
