BS 6701:2010 Telecommunications equipment and telecommunications cabling. Specification for installation, operation and maintenance

If you work in the telecommunications industry, and are responsible for installing, operating or the administration and maintenance of copper or optical fibre cabling or equipment, then this newly-revised standard will be of interest.

Conformance to specific aspects of BS 6701 is a requirement of the Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) and is applicable in virtually all premises.  In addition, it addresses cabling external to buildings and should be followed by anyone installing cabling.

Correctly specified and installed cable management systems ensure that telecommunication cabling performs at its best – so it is important that cable management be considered from the start of a project.

In addition to specifying the requirements beyond the scope of the BS EN 50174 series of standards for telecommunications cabling, BS 6701 provides requirements for installing telecommunications equipment. The application of BS 6701 will ensure that equipment is properly set up, which means the customer will be reassured their risk-managed cabling installations work to optimum performance, thus assuring more profitable business practice.

As one of the few national standards that are directly linked to the EN 50174 series, BS 6701 could also be used in other countries. It supports all cabling media.
