 Structured CATV cabling
Hi, i want to cable one of my buildings, but for that i must write a so called "notebook of the task" so i need to know some standards and what to write in it for the designer of the network.

Dear John,

You definitely want to reference TIA/EIA-568-B and TIA/EIA-569-B standards. Also, BISCI used to provide a template for a structured cabling RFQ (request for quote) but they since moved this document to a member-only area.

One solution I can think of: why don't you let your potential cabling installer to create such document for you? Installers are usually familiar with applicable standards and may even have a copy of the above mentioned RFQ template. I you be nice and actually pay for their work of creating the document, I'm sure they won't object to you using this RFQ later to let other people bid on the scope of work.
