IEEE Draft Standard for the Electrical Protection of Communication Facilities Serving Electric Supply Locations Through the Use of Hybrid Facilities - Amendment 1

Safe and reliable methods for the electrical protection of telecommunication facilities serving electric supply locations through the use of metallic wire-line components in part of the telecommunication circuit, and optical fiber systems in the remainder of the telecommunication circuit are presented in this standard. Hybrid applications have an equipment junction between the metallic wire-line and the optical fiber cable, i.e., a wire-line--fiber cable junction (CFJ).

IEEE Standard Performance Requirements for Communications and Control Cables for Application in High-Voltage Environments

Information to assist in determining the electrical parameters of communication and control cables necessary to improve the overall reliability of these cables when used in high-voltage environments is the objective of this standard. There should be a very high probability (greater than 99%) that these cables will perform their intended function for specified periods of time in high-voltage interference conditions. The end result being more reliable communications over said cables. The information presented in this standard will apply equally to either new or existing [already installed] cables.
