Operational Vibration Requirements for Communications Equipment
|Publication Date:||1 June 2017|
This standard covers the minimum operational vibration criteria for communications equipment. This includes, but is not limited to, equipment intended for deployment in buildings (e.g., central office, data center, huts, and vaults) and equipment in outside plant environments. Examples of such equipment include, but are not limited to:
- Transport Equipment
- Power Equipment
- Optical Network Units (ONU)
- Optical Network Terminal (ONT)
- Set Top Boxes
- Power over Ethernet Devices (PoE)
- Remote Terminals
This standard defines criteria for operational vibration environments during which the equipment must operate as intended and be free from physical damage.
The purpose of this standard is to provide the service providers, end-users, manufacturers, test labs, etc., a means of evaluating communications equipment's resistance to vibration in its operational configuration. This standard also provides the functional and test report criteria necessary for proper evaluation by interested parties, and those intending to deploy equipment.
This standard applies to equipment intended to be installed and utilized by service providers, end-users, manufacturers, etc.
