    ORDERING INFORMATION

    ABSTRACT:
    GR-137, Issue 2, sets forth the Telcordia view of proposed generic requirements for metallic wire products applicable for metallic
    twisted-pair wire products used inside telecommunications facilities for interconnection of service provider equipment such as
    transmission and switching devices. The generic requirements are necessary to meet the minimum operational compatibility or service
    consistency needs for users of these products.

    This GR covers mechanical and electrical generic requirements for insulated telecommunications cables and is organized into sections
    covering conductors, insulation, core assembly, optional foil screens, jackets and the electrical and mechanical performance
    requirements for the completed wire products.

    Issue 2 includes the following changes:
    • Revisions for the latest insulation, jacket, and cable core material technologies, and other design changes that have occurred
      since the document was last issued. These efforts were also made to broaden the allowed materials and wire designs through the use of
      functional performance tests to replace material-specific tests for cable components.

    • Harmonization and coordination with the new issue of GR-3164 and other relevant industry specifications (i.e., UL, ICEA, TL 9000,
      etc.).

    • Consolidation of requirements to cover twisted wire products used in a variety of building facilities (COs, Data centers, telecom
      rooms in commercial buildings) for network equipment applications.


    GR-137, Issue 2, aligns with GR-3164 and is intended to work in conjunction with GR-126, GR-136, and GR-3164 to form a family of GRs
    that cover all the twisted-pair wire and cable products used inside the buildings/facilities of communications utility service
    providers.

    GR-137, Issue 2, replaces GR-137, Issue 1; TA-TSY-000140; TA-TSY-000141; and TA-TSY-000142.

    When using GR-137, you may need to refer to GR-126, GR-136, GR-421, GR-3164, and several ASTM specifications. You
    may also want to refer to ISO 9000 and 9004 documents.
