By dave97s ·
There's an article on Siemon's website called "De-Mystifying Cabling Specifications From 5e to 7A" which explains what network cabling standards mean to networks.

Here are the currently active standards in TIA and ISO (taken from the article):

Category 6A ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B.2-10, Commercial Building Telecommunications Standard Part 2: Addendum 10: Transmission Performance Specifications for 4 Pair 100 Ohm Augmented Category 6 Cabling, pending publication

ISO Cabling Standards
