ABSTRACT: As broadband services are brought to the local customer's premises, the sophistication of the physical telecommunications plant and
transport systems has increased to a level where a multitude of different test sets are now required during construction and repair
operations. The increased interest in hybrid fiber/coax systems further reinforces the concept of telecommunications personnel using a
mixed array of metallic and optical fiber test equipment to test and trouble shoot these new communications systems. A Universal Test
Set (UTS) may ease the logistical and operations problems for the communication technician.
This document sets forth the view of Telcordia on generic requirements and objectives for UTS's that are used to characterize
communications systems for a service provider. The document includes generic functional design criteria, generic mechanical and
optical requirements, desired features, and test methods for comparing the product against the stated generic requirements.
This GR also includes one or more Issue List Reports (ILRs) that details open or closed technical issues in the main document. The
ILR(s) are automatically sent free of charge to the GR document purchaser.
