IDA reviews code of practice for communications facilities

Wednesday 21 November 2007 | 07:40 CET | News
The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore has reviewed the code of practice for info communications facilities in buildings (COPIF) for the next generation national broadband network. The purpose of the COPIF is to ensure that developers or owners of buildings provide adequate space and facilities within their buildings for the installation of equipment and plant used by facilities-based operators to provide info-communication services to building occupants. The NGNBN will be a new network capable of ultra high speed of symmetric 1 Gbps or more, with initial provisioning of 100 Mbps. The NGNBN project is currently at the pre-request-for-proposal competitive dialogue stage. To facilitate the deployment of NGNBN, IDA proposes that the revised COPIF will include a mandatory requirement on developers or owners to install an empty 20 mm diameter uPVC conduit in straight run from the telecommunication riser to each residential unit, a minimum installation of one unshielded twisted pair category 6 cable with a wall-mounted RJ45 outlet from the location where the empty 20 mm conduit is terminated to a wall-mounted RJ45 outlet at the living room or a bed room to facilitate deployment of Ethernet-to-the-home for next-generation broadband services. The IDA has proposed two electrical 230V 13A switched socket outlets at the location where the above-mentioned empty 20 mm conduit is terminated. IDA has invited comments from the industry and the public to submit comments regarding the proposed amendments to the COPIF. The submissions must reach IDA by 12:00 hours, 4 December.
