Guide to Separation of Network Cabling from EMI Sources
Some of the common questions asked by a person responsible for network cabling design and installation are:
Those questions have two important aspects:
The “Electrical Safety” aspect defines the required separation of network cabling from power conductors and devices to eliminate the electrical hazard for the personnel working in an office.
The “Network Performance” aspect defines the separation of network copper cabling from different sources of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) required (or recommended) for proper transmission of network signals over the copper network cabling. This type of separation guidelines ensures that the
network functions without degradation. Typical EMI sources include:
