    ORDERING INFORMATION

    ABSTRACT:
    GR-3173 sets forth proposed generic technical requirements and characteristics of hybrid optical and electrical cables for use in
    wireless Fiber To The Antenna (FTTA) applications. The initial focus of GR-3173-CORE, Issue 1, is on hybrid optical and electrical
    cables for outdoor tower applications. This includes connections between local and remote base stations.

    This GR represents the expressed need and interests of the funding companies of the GR-3173 Telcordia Technical Forum (TTF), and may
    meet the needs of other Communications Service Providers (CSPs), cable and equipment manufacturers, and integrators. The requirements
    are based on accepted National and International industry standards and specifications, the needs and deployment environments of CSPs,
    and optical fiber and cable manufacturers' views of industry-required criteria.
    GR-3173 includes:
    • Proposed functional design criteria.
    • Generic environmental, mechanical, optical, and electrical performance requirements.
    • Desired features.
    • Test methods for comparing the cable product against the stated generic requirements. The specified test methods are intended
      to provide a consistent and repeatable methodology that reflects the operational conditions for hybrid optical and electrical cable
      analysis.


    GR-3173 is also intended to specify sampling criteria and test methodology information for Independent Test Laboratories (ITLs) to
    provide consistent and repeatable results for hybrid optical and electrical cable test programs. This testing information is for ITL
    testing only and is not sufficient for production testing for manufacturer quality control testing that requires many more test samples
    to achieve the desired statistical significance.

    This GR document depends heavily on accepted National and International standards activities, including those from the Insulated
    Cable Engineers Association (ICEA), International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), International Telecommunication Union -
    Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T), and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA).

    GR-3173, Generic Requirements for Hybrid Optical and Electrical Cables for Use in Wireless Outdoor Fiber To The Antenna (FTTA)
    Applications
    , is new.
    When using GR-3173, you may want to refer to GR-20, GR-421, and GR-347.
