                      Proposal for a new newsgroup

Proposed by:    Alain Fontaine <[email protected]>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Group name:       comp.dcom.cabling-sys
Status:              unmoderated
Distribution: world-wide
Summary:             a newsgroup for the discussion of cabling systems for
              communication

JUSTIFICATION:

There are several groups in existence where different (local or 
non-local) network technologies are discussed. While it has been
true in the past that each network technology did use a specific
type of cabling, the current trend is to wire buildings with some
universal cabling system, and then to use newer variations of the
established networking technologies (like 10baseT for Ethernet) on
that universal cabling.

Cabling systems have thus reached a point where they are independent
of the network technologies. They have their own standards, including
a forthcoming ISO/IEC standard. They should have the same kind of status
in the news, as it should be possible to find a place to discuss the
issues pertaining to that new discipline, indepedently of any network
architecture.

CHARTER:

The proposed group will provide a forum for the discussion of issues 
related to the selection, installation and test of cabling systems. 
Example topics:
- cable specifications
- connector specifications 
- structure of cabling sytems
- implementation details
- test apparatus and procedures for cabling

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Please post information for discussion to the news groups (news.groups).

Newsgroups line:
comp.dcom.cabling	Cabling selection, installation and use.

Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC, 21 Jun 1994.

This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party.  For voting
questions only contact [email protected]  For questions about the

CHARTER

This group provides a forum for the discussion of issues
related to the selection, installation, test and usage of cabling.

Example topics:

- cable specifications
- connector specifications
- structure of cabling sytems
- implementation details
- test apparatus and procedures for cabling
- usage of existing cabling for new applications
- ISO 11801


Justification:

There are several groups in existence where different (local or
non-local) network technologies are discussed. While it has been true
in the past that each network technology did use a specific type of
cabling, the current trend is to wire buildings with some universal
cabling system, and then to use newer variations of the established
networking technologies (like 10baseT for Ethernet) on that universal
cabling.

Cabling systems have thus reached a point where they are independent
of the network technologies. They have their own standards, including
a forthcoming ISO/IEC standard. They should have the same kind of
status in the news, as it should be possible to find a place to
discuss the issues pertaining to that new discipline, independently of
any network architecture.

Additionally, the existing cabling must still be maintained and used
in the best possible way. The same group would also be a place where
more general questions about all cabling issues could be debated.
