ABSTRACT: Transport systems provide the means to transmit information between designated interfaces in a communications network. They consist of
hardware, software, and media that combine, process, and transmit signals used to support telecommunications services. GR-499 describes
the Telcordia view of the basic generic requirements common to transport systems.
The value of GR-499, Issue 4:
- One Key Resource - GR-499 serves as a repository for criteria covering a very broad range of topics of importance
significantly reducing the number of documents that need to be consulted when dealing with transport systems
- Continuity and Consistency - GR-499 provides continuity and consistent terms for use by multiple designers,
suppliers, and manufacturers
- Network Compatibility and Economies of Scale - GR-499 helps ensure product and network compatibility, and promotes
economies of scale for service providers
- Aligns with ATIS and ITU specifications - The impedance/return loss criteria for DS1, DS1A, DS1C, DS2, DS3, and SS4NA
electrical interfaces now align with the specifications in ATIS-0600403 and ITU-T Rec. G.703.
Issue 4 of GR-499, Transport Systems Generic Requirements (TSGR),Common Requirements, replaces Issue 3. GR-499 replaced TR-NWT-000499,
TR=TSY-000191, and TR-TSY-000009.
