    ORDERING INFORMATION

    ABSTRACT: Optoelectronic devices are the backbone of the optical fiber industry. These devices include lasers, light emitting diodes, photo
    detectors, and modulators, and are key components used in telecommunications equipment such as:
    • Asynchronous and synchronous fiber optic terminal and add-drop multiplexers

    • Digital cross-connect systems

    • Optical amplifiers

    • Universal or integrated digital cross-connect systems

    • Fiber-In-The-Loop systems.

    This NEBS (Network Equipment-Building System) document presents the Telcordia view of proposed generic reliability assurance practices
    for most optoelectronic devices used in telecommunications equipment.

    GR-468 is the only industry-complete reference source on this topic, saving your company thousands of dollars
    in research and development costs. This document helps ensure the reliable operation of optoelectronic devices, and helps minimize your
    company's life-cycle cost. GR-468 can be drawn on to cover other active optoelectronic devices utilized in telecommunications
    equipment.

    Major changes in Issue 2 include:
    • Criteria related to qualification testing, reliability, or accelerated aging testing, and lot-to-lot controls has been
      consolidated to highlight commonalities and differences between the tests and procedures that apply to various devices and levels of
      devices.

    • An expanded scope of the document, and revised definitions of device levels

    • New material added on tunable lasers and optoelectronic receivers

    • Removal of objectives that indicated specific performance parameters, and various tables that listed those parameters consolidated
      into a single table.

    • A defined set of operational shock and vibration conditions.

    When using GR-468, you may need to refer to GR-63, GR-78, GR-326, GR-357, GR-418, GR-487, GR-874,
    GR-909, GR-1221, GR-1252, GR-1312, GR-2882, SR-332, TR-NWT-000870, TR-NWT-000930, GR-3160 and/or
    various IEC, MIL-STD and ITA/EIA FOTP-series publications.

    GR-468-CORE replaced TR-NWT-000468 and TA-NWT-000983.
    (Sometimes referenced as "Telcordia Technologies 983" on other external websites).

    Issue 2 of GR-468, Generic Reliability Assurance Requirements for Optoelectronic Devices Used in Telecommunications
    Equipment
    , replaces Issue 1.
