NEBS also includes criteria for personnel safety, protection of property and operational continuity.
Montreal (PRWEB) July 24, 2008
Reliability is essential for today's communications networks and the integrity of telecommunications services is increasingly important for national security. Service providers are increasingly more concerned with reliability and standards compliance. Positron is pleased to announce that its TeleLite fiber optic isolation product has passed all of the stringent compliance requirements of NEBS Level 3 certification.
The Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) standards were developed by Telcordia to define design guidelines that must be applied to telecommunications equipment to provide reliable and safe services. These rigorous criteria have become a universal measure of network product requirements and excellence. To be NEBS compliant, telecommunications installations must meet network and all FCC requirements and must be capable of withstanding harsh stresses, such as earthquakes (vibration), thunderstorms, windstorms, temperature extremes, exposure to fire and more. These requirements are specified in the Telecommunications Carrier Group (TCG) NEBS checklist, available at http://www.verizonnebs.com.
Successful NEBS testing of a product means that the product has been thoroughly tested for its robustness and meets a high standard for continuous operation through a wide variety of environmental extremes. This ensures a high-quality product that provides reliable performance and low maintenance cost.
"NEBS compliance is a validation of reliability, performance and quality that is extremely valuable for service providers who want their equipment to operate safely and reliably to ensure an extremely high level of availability, under all operating conditions and circumstances," explains Bert Habert, VP of Sales at Positron. "NEBS also includes criteria for personnel safety, protection of property and operational continuity."
In addition to ensuring compliance to FCC Part 15, FCC Part 68 and UL/CSA, NEBS includes specific criteria and tests for: earthquakes, vibration resistance, electromagnetic emission, ultraviolet resistance, thermal robustness, condensation, humidity exposure, wind, water and corrosion resistance, acoustical noise suppression, bonding and grounding, paint adhesion, flexibility and more.
Over the last 38 years, Positron has been a market leader in providing high quality, reliable telecommunication solutions. Positron's Access Solutions division develops and manufactures leading edge carrier grade telecommunications products including SONET optical transport platforms for today's high speed metro networks, thin route fiber access solutions, high voltage isolation products to protect telecommunication circuits entering substations, power generating plants, PCS and Radio towers, public safety answering positions and other areas that are susceptible to the effects of Ground Potential Rise, electromagnetic induction and high voltages.
