    ORDERING INFORMATION


    ABSTRACT: GR-13 outlines the Telcordia proposed generic requirements for pedestal terminal closures intended to house passive telecommunications components used in an Outside Plant (OSP) environment. These closures may house copper terminal blocks, coaxial taps, or passive fiber optic distribution equipment used for the distribution of telephone service and broadband services. This document can be used for copper (both twisted pair and coax) and fiber optic passive distribution networks. It covers the housing only and not the equipment that will be installed in the pedestal.

    GR-13 is the one document that contains all the general, electrical, mechanical and environmental requirements for pedestal terminal closure products. It would help users, suppliers and manufacturers properly access, test and review pedestal terminal closure products. By identifying testing issues, millions of dollars in field issues can be avoided.

    GR-13, Issue 4 is intended to help service providers and equipment vendors evaluate new products and lay the framework for Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) implementations.

    Issue 4 contains the following highlights:

    • Outlines the Telcordia proposed generic requirements for pedestal terminal closures intended to house passive telecommunications components used in an outside plant environment
    • Covers closures that may house copper terminal blocks, coaxial taps, or passive fiber optic distribution equipment used for the distribution of telephone service and broadband services
    • Provides for bonding and grounding incoming cables and the mounting of station-to-cable protectors
    • Requirements can be used for copper (both twisted pair and coax) and fiber optic passive distribution networks.
    Issue 4 of GR-13, Generic Requirements for Pedestal Terminal Closures, replaces Issue 3.

    GR-13 replaces TR-NWT-000013 and MDP-326-134.

    When using GR-13, you may want to refer to GR-3108, GR-3120, GR-3121, GR-3122, and GR-3123.
