BICSI Data Center Standard Update

Jonathan Jew J&M Consultants, Inc. John Kacperski UCLA Medical Center

ANSI/BICSI-002 Data Center Design and Implementation Best Practices Standard An international standard, not just U.S. Meant to supplement, not replace existing data center cabling standards such as TIA-942 and CENELEC EN 50173-5 Large committee of experts (150) Large document (~500 pages) covering a wide range of subjects

Subjects Covered
Site Selection Architectural and Structural Design Electrical Systems Mechanical Systems (i.e., HVAC) Fire Protection and Security Building Automation Systems Commissioning Maintenance

Subjects Covered

Telecommunications Bonding and Grounding Planning and Installation Methods for Commercial Buildings

Highlights of NECA/BICSI 607

Busbar to Equipment New Terminology Emphasis on Installation Techniques

Telecommunications Room
Bonding Jumper Telecommunication Equipment Bonding Conductor (TEBC) Grounding Equalizer (GE) Rack Bonding Conductor (RBC)

Vertical Rack Grounding Busbar (RGBV)

Telecommunications Grounding Busbar (TGB)

Unit Bonding Conductor (UBC)

Telecommunications Bonding Backbone (TBB)

Equipment & Rack Bonding Option 1

Option 1 Equipment attached to a rack bonding conductor (RBC)
From rack/cabinet to TEBC

Requires multiple cutting and stripping of the RBC Requires multiple irreversible connections


Equipment & Rack Bonding Option 2

Option 2 Horizontal rack grounding busbar
mounted on top or bottom of the rack/cabinet equipment bonded directly to the busbar with a unit bonding conductor (UBC)

UBCs may be longer Adds to the complexity of cable management

Equipment & Rack Bonding Option 3

Option 3 Vertical rack grounding busbar
runs length of rack/cabinet equipment bonded directly to the busbar with a unit bonding conductor (UBC)

Preferred option resulting in short lengths of UBCs

Equipment & Rack Bonding

Unacceptable practice
series or daisy chain connected equipment bonding conductors


Connecting to the Busbar

Remove surface debris with an abrasive pad

Apply thin coating of anti-oxidant compound where connection takes place

Connecting to the Busbar

Attach lugs to the busbar
stainless steel or silicon bronze hardware tighten to the appropriate torque rating

These are just a few examples of the additions made .. Hopefully, these allow for a better understanding of proper bonding and grounding techniques

ANSI/NECA/BICSI-568, Installing Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling

Bob Jensen, RCDD

This standard not only covers the installation and safety requirements for telecommunications cabling, it focuses on criteria that aid in delivering performance levels expected by end-users To promote telecommunications infrastructure installation training
National Electrical Code (NEC) references Provide guidance to installation trades

ANSI/NECA/BICSI-568 is based upon BICSIs Telecommunications Cabling Installation Manual

1998 BOD approved The first standard to address the joint standard importance of proper telecommunications with NECA infrastructure installation

2001 Joint standard published

2006 Joint standard revised

This Standard describes minimum requirements and procedures for installing the infrastructure for telecommunications including balanced twisted pair copper cabling and optical fiber cabling that transport telecommunications signals (e.g., voice, data, video). Installers should always follow applicable codes and manufacturers instructions. This Standard is intended to be used in describing a neat and workmanlike manner as referenced by ANSI/NFPA 70, the National Electrical Code (NEC).

The NEC Relationship

Route survey and planning Cable trays (supporting, various types) Conduit (length limitations, bends, securing, bonding)

Plywood backboards (securing to walls) Equipment racks, cabinets (wall and floor mounted)

Bonding Cable support systems (J-hooks) Separation from possible EMI sources

Pulling cable
Horizontal and backbone cables Horizontal and vertical pathways Open ceiling

Preferred optical fiber premises cable jacket colors

Re-establishing the integrity of fire rated walls, floors, and ceilings is an essential part of a cabling installation. Ten basic types of firestop Typical installations illustrated

Cable Terminations and Splicing
Fiber and Copper Color codes Dressing cables for termination

Installation verification
Visual inspection and performance test documentation are required for proof of proper installation conformance
