Small-Office Home-Office (SOHO) and Residential Services – Internal Wiring Guidelines
Licensed service providers have an obligation to provide basic services to all customers with an ICT requirement, be it residential or business. It is also an objective of the service providers within Qatar to provide wherever possible state-of-the-art infrastructure and services to help make Qatar a leading global market for ultra-high-speed internet as well as cutting- edge products and services. Licensed service providers within Qatar require landlords, building owners and developers to follow the guidelines within this document to ensure that the best and fastest services may be provided to the customer. To that end this document sets out to:
1. Set the minimum requirements regarding the provision of internal wiring to support Telecommunications Services in Residential and Small Office Home Office (SOHO) premises in Qatar.
2. Set out a best practice guideline to which all parties involved in the design of internal wiring shall comply.
The guidance provided herein on internal cabling infrastructure is also designed to help “future-proof” the network as far as reasonably possible given the current trends in technology through the use of ducts, Category-6 cable/connector assemblies, and limiting cable span lengths to help maximize transmission performance. The network demarcation points and licensed service providers’ responsibilities are defined in section 3 of this document.
