Generic Requirements for Hardened Fiber Optic Connectors (HFOCs) and Hardened Fiber Optic Adapters (HFOAs)

Document Number GR-3120
Issue Number 02
Issue Date Apr 2010

    ABSTRACT: Hardened Fiber Optic Connectors (HFOCs) and Hardened Fiber Optic Adapters (HFOAs) are passive telecommunications components used in an
    Outside Plant (OSP) environment. They provide drop connections to customers from fiber distribution networks. These components may be
    provided in pedestal closures, aerial and buried closures and terminals, or equipment located at customer premises such as a Fiber
    Distribution Hub (FDH) or an Optical Network Terminal or Termination (ONT) unit.

    These connectors, which are field-mateable, and hardened for use in the outside plant (OSP), are needed to support Fiber to the
    Premises (FTTP) deployment and service offerings.

    Issue 2 of GR-3120:
    • Includes updates to various requirements and test procedures, and contains a new test program matrix making the document
      clearer and easier to use

    • Contains new criteria for mechanical performance, chemical resistance, endface geometry, thermal expansion, and more

    • Aligns with the newest issues of GR-326,Generic Requirements for Singlemode Optical Connectors and Jumper Assemblies,
      and GR-771, Generic Requirements for Fiber Optic Splice Closures

    The requirements in GR-3120, Issue 2, have been accepted as an industry standard, thus saving you considerable expense in formulating
    your own specifications and work plans.

    Issue 2 of GR-3120, Generic Requirements for Hardened Fiber Optic Connectors (HFOCs) and Hardened Fiber Optic Adapters
    , replaces Issue 1.

    When using GR-3120, you may want to refer to GR-326, GR-771, GR-63, GR-2923, GR-20, GR-209, and GR-839.
