ANSI/BICSI N3-20, Planning and Installation Methods for the Bonding and Grounding of Telecommunication and ICT Systems and Infrastructure

Bonding and Grounding 2

Prevent injury and equipment damage through proper installation of an ICT bonding and grounding system.

With the complexity of today’s infrastructure with little margin for outages, any system, including the grounding and bonding network, can be the weakest link. As the best design can be undone by poor implementation, ANSI/BICSI N3 specifies aspects of the planning and installation of telecommunications bonding and grounding systems.

ANSI/BICSI N3 is also compliant with NFPA 70, National Electrical Code® and the primary ICT bonding and grounding infrastructure design standards (i.e., ANSI/TIA-607, ISO/IEC 30129), helping to ensue the effectives of these systems.
