- 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.
When using GR-499, you may want to refer to GR-63, GR-78, GR-253, GR-320, GR-357, GR-418, GR-454,
