Practical impacts of bend radius on twisted-pair cable installation

Installers must consider more than just the cable in order to comply with bend-radius requirements. Support hardware, connectivity, and other equipment matter too.The requirement for maintaining proper bend radius is defined in the Generic Telecommunications Cabling for Customer Premises standard, ANSI/TIA-568.0-D. The standard’s “D” revision was published in 2015 and specifies that the minimum inside bend radius for balanced unshielded twisted-pair cable is four times the overall cable diameter.
