FOREWORD

1) ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission)

form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of ISO or IEC

participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees established by the

respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees

collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental and non-governmental,

in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC and ISO on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an

international consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation

from all interested IEC and ISO National bodies.

3) IEC and ISO documents have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC and

ISO National bodies in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of

IEC and ISO documents is accurate, IEC and ISO cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used

or for any misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC and ISO National bodies undertake to apply IEC and ISO

documents transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any

divergence between any IEC and ISO document and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be

clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC and ISO do not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC and ISO marks of conformity. IEC and ISO are not

responsible for any services carried out by independent certification bodies.
6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this document.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC and ISO or their directors, employees, servants or agents including individual

experts and members of its technical committees and IEC and ISO National bodies for any personal injury,

property damage or other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including

legal fees) and expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this ISO/IEC document or any

other IEC and ISO documents.

patent rights. IEC and ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO/IEC TS 11801-9903 has been prepared by subcommittee 25: Interconnection of information

technology equipment, of ISO/IEC joint technical committee 1: Information technology. It is a

Technical Specification.

This first edition of ISO/IEC TS 11801-9903 cancels and replaces ISO/IEC TR 11801-9903

published in 2015. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:

a) the addition of further clarifications of the relations of parameters described in this edition

and referenced analogous parameters in IEC TR 62152, e.g. operational attenuation versus

operational transfer loss;

b) the introduction and description of the higher order M-parameters 8 × 8 matrix of mixed-

mode parameters, which includes the 4 × 4 submatrix of 4-port differential-mode-to-

differential-mode (DD) parameters, among three other submatrices of mixed-mode
parameters;

c) Annex A, matrix conversion formulas, covers up to 16-port parameters matrices;

d) the expanded Annex B description of example calculations for channel and permanent link,

and updated component parameter tables.

INTRODUCTION

The pass/fail limits for defined channel and permanent link cabling configurations have an

implicit impact on the component limits for the cabling components used. The channel

configurations and the link configurations are specified in ISO/IEC 11801-1:2017, Clause 6 and

Clause 7, respectively.

The permanent link configurations, which represent the fixed portion of the cabling, have two

possible topologies:
– a connection plus a segment of cable plus a connection (2-connector topology);

– a connection plus a segment of cable plus a connection plus another segment of cable plus

another connection (3-connector topology).
The link configurations of ISO/IEC 11801-1 are shown in Figure 1.
a) Configuration PL1
b) Configuration PL2
c) Configuration PL3
d) Configuration CP1
Figure 1 – Link configurations of ISO/IEC 11801-1

This document includes models and assumptions, which support pass/fail limits for the channel

and permanent link test configurations in ISO/IEC 11801-1. These are based on the

performance requirements of cable and connecting hardware as specified in IEC standards.

This document provides reasonable assurance that a channel created by adding compliant

patch cords to a previously certified permanent link will meet the applicable channel

performance limits.
---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
– 8 – ISO/IEC TS 11801-9903:2021
 ISO/IEC 2021

Over the years the frequencies of the classes increased, but the theory for calculating the limits

stayed the same. Especially the higher order effects had to be considered and in the end only

by doing a Monte Carlo calculation, assuming that not all components would be at the limit at

the same time, allowed compliance to be proved.

The model uses two pairs for all calculations. The limits are equal for pairs or pair combinations

but in reality measured values could be different. If results are required that need more pairs to

be considered, then this calculation can be done based on the results from multiple two-pair

calculations with appropriate inputs (worst case). An example of such a calculation is the power

sum and average limit lines for four pairs.

Symmetry and additional contributions that result from unbalanced signals and differential-to-

common and common-to-differential mode coupling are included in this document by increasing

the matrix size.

For details on the naming of transmission parameters, see Clause 3 and Clause C.1.

The model to be used is a concatenated matrix calculation as discussed in IEC TR 62152 [1]

for a 2-port system. For a 2-pair balanced cabling calculation, a 4-port differential matrix as
