ABSTRACT: This document replaces TA-TSY-000843.
This Technical Reference (TR) provides the Telcordia view of certain generic engineering and technical requirements for Optical and
Optical/ Metallic Buried Service Cable that should be met in order to meet the typical needs of Local Exchange Carriers (LECs).
This TR includes functional design criteria; generic mechanical, electrical, and optical requirements; desired features; and test
methods for comparing the product against the stated generic requirements. The specified test methods are intended to reflect the
operational conditions for optical fiber and cable analysis.
