This European Standard contains the initial, start of life dimensional, optical, mechanical and environmental performance requirements (excluding electrical requirements) to be met by a 12 fibre multimode PPS MPO plug terminated on EN 60793-2-10 category A1a.3a or A1a.3b fibre and a 4+4x10,3125 Gb/s MPO (QSFP) transceiver to meet in order to be categorized as an EN standard product.
Since different variants are permitted, product marking details are given in 4.6.
All products conforming to the requirements of this standard are meant to intermate and give the specified performance level. The intention is that this will be true irrespective of the manufacturing source(s) of the product.
The tests selected, combined with the severity and duration, are representative of a backplane/back panel indoor application typically in a data centre environment derived from a customer premises protected environment as defined in the EN 50173 series and the ISO/IEC 11801 series and specified as category C in EN 61753-1.
Whilst the anticipated service life expectancy of the product in this environment is 10 years, compliance with this standard does not guarantee the reliability of the product. This should be predicted using a recognized reliability assessment programme.
Compliance with this standard does not guarantee the manufacturing consistency of the product. This should be maintained using a recognized quality assurance programme.
