Telecommunications Equipment Evaluation
Telcordia Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) testing—an industry preproduction requirement—evaluates how telecommunications equipment performs during various physical and electrical operating conditions. While NEBS is used for domestic applications, ETSI is used for European Nation applications.
Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) is equipped to handle both NEBS and ETSI. Additionally, GR-487-CORE testing can be performed to assess equipment deployed outside of the Central Office.
Additional NEBS Environmental Capabilities
- Environmental Testing: Operating Temperature / Humidity, Packaged Thermal Extremes Shock and High Humidity, Altitude, Acoustic Noise, Illumination
- Mechanical Testing: Earthquake, Transportation Vibration, Handling Drops
- Gaseous Contaminants Testing: Gaseous Contaminants, Hygroscopic Dust
- Fire Testing: Fire Spread Test, Needle Flame / Component Test, Smoke Corrosivity Test
