More and more computing equipment is being installed in today’s telecom network, especially in the data center. Data centers are usually more modern than the traditional central offices. This modern design makes them better able to control temperature, humidity and vibration but there is still a need for testing and verification - which is one of the ways we can help guide you.

Whether testing to a subset of NEBS, GR-3160-CORE or a data center operator’s own requirements, reliability and safety of the equipment remains critical to thorough functionality of the system.

Our Connected World team helps you navigate these requirements and assists in developing a test plan to meet all your customers' needs. Contact us today to learn more about data center requirements.

NEBS requirements cover network telecom equipment that is intended for installation and deploy in the Service Provider’s Central Office. NEBS testing is required in order to assure the service providers that equipment installed in their CO is compatible with other equipment and will not jeopardize network integrity.

NEBS requirements can vary depending on which service provider you are selling your equipment to and how that equipment connects to the network. Many service providers require additional testing beyond the NEBS requirements called out in GR-63-CORE and GR-1089-CORE.
