    ABSTRACT: Passive optical components help eliminate many bottlenecks of conventional communications systems. Replacing active components with
    passive components provides a significant cost savings by eliminating the need to power and service active components in the
    transmission loop.

    GR-1221, Issue 3, presents the Telcordia view of proposed generic reliability assurance requirements for passive optical components,
    and is directed toward an equipment supplier's design engineering, manufacturing, procurement, and reliability/quality organizations.
    Common forms of passive fiber optic branching components include splitters, couplers, and wavelength division multiplexers (WDM-MUXES)
    and demultiplexers (WDM-DEMUXES).

    The new issue of GR-1221 contains updated generic and reliability assurance requirements for passive optical components, and now has
    added value for system developers and component manufacturers.

    Updates include:
    • Requirements for the efficient and cost-effective operation of components in various environmental conditions such as salt and
      fog, water immersion, and exposure to airborne contaminants

    • Requirements for specific packaging and shipping tests

    • Aligns with general industry specifications for system developers

    • Aligns with critical NEBS requirements developed since the last issue of GR-1221

    • Fully aligned vibration and impact requirements to simplify testing

    Used with GR-1209, Issue 4, Generic Requirements for Passive Optical Components, these documents assure that optical devices
    function satisfactorily for long periods under adverse environmental conditions.

    Issue 3 of GR-1221, Generic Reliability Assurance Requirements for Passive Optical Components, replaces Issue 2, and is a
    module of FR-NEBS-EQUIP-PROTECT-01, FR-ENGINEER-POWER-01, FR-PASSIVE-COMP-01, FR-RELIABILITY-QUALITY-01, and
    FR-FIBER-CABLE-01.

    GR-1221 replaced TA-NWT-001221.

    GR-1073, Issue 2, Generic Requirements for Single-Mode Fiber Optic Switches, now aligns with GR-1221.

    When using GR-1221, you may need to refer to GR-357, GR-1209, GR-2854, GR-2882, GR-2883, and/or various EIA,
    IEC, and MIL documents. You may also want to refer to GR-20, GR-63, GR-78, GR-326, SR-332, GR-409, GR-418,
    GR-468, GR-487, TR-NWT-000870, GR-874, GR-909, and/or TR-NWT-000930.
