This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - the contents are updated throughout; - the informative Annexes C "Guide to the installation of optical fibre cables" and D "Guide to hydrogen effects in optical fibre cables" have been deleted from this standard and will be published as separate Technical Reports; - the remaining Annexes are renamed accordingly. This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60794-1-2:2003. The contents of the corrigendum of January 2012 have been included in this copy.
