NEBS Testing


NEBS (Network Equipment Building Systems) is the generic requirement for the spatial environmental, EMI/EMC, and product safety of telecom equipment being deployed in the Central Office locations of the Public Switch Telephone Network. These requirements are mandated by the network carriers providing confidence that equipment has a high degree of reliability and will work under extreme environments while maintaining service for their customers.
