Guidelines for Environmental Testing and Evaluation of Communication Equipment
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
This guideline is for use as a reference guide for physical and energy efficiency of both indoor and outdoor equipment. The intent of the guideline is to be a reference guide and not for specific testing guidance of the equipment. This guideline is designed to refer the interested parties to applicable test standard(s).
The purpose of this guideline is to provide interested parties a roadmap through the suite of ATIS standards. It is meant as a roadmap and the expectation is that the referenced document in each table shall be used to perform the testing. The reference document will contain the actual test parameters, duration, methods, and tolerance to be applied during the testing phase. The information supplied in this guideline alone is not sufficient to perform the testing in accordance with the referenced documents.
Interested parties will utilize the ATIS requirements, referenced throughout the guideline, for designing and providing communications providers and suppliers with industry-compatible equipment. Testing facilities, manufacturers, and end users of the equipment will utilize the guideline for equipment qualification advice and assurance that all qualification and testing requirements were performed and met.
