Generic Requirements (GRs)

The GR Development Process

Generic Requirements (GRs) provide the industry view of proposed generic criteria for telecommunications equipment, systems, or services. These criteria consider a wide variety of factors, including interoperability, network integrity, participating-client expressed needs, and other inputs. We invite all interested parties to participate in our various projects to develop industry-wide generic requirements.

Effective January 2012, Telcordia Technologies, Inc., was acquired by Ericsson. We will continue to provide vendor-neutral services to the industry, including GR development services. The Telcordia name and logo will remain on all GR products and technical analysis reports. For GR development and other vendor-neutral services, we remain fully committed to the industry and will continue to operate in an independent manner.

Listings of Invitations for Participation by project status are available by clicking on the links below (all in PDF format):

We reserve the right to withdraw from any open GR development projects if we deem that there is insufficient industry interest or inadequate participation.
