Generic Requirements for Passive Optical Components
Document Number GR-1209
Issue Number 04
Issue Date Sep 2010
Replaces TR-NWT-001209 Issue01
ABSTRACT: Passive optical components help eliminate many bottlenecks of conventional communication systems. Replacing active components with
passive components provides a significant cost-savings by eliminating the need to power and service active components in the
This document contains generic criteria for passive optical components to help promote the satisfactory operation of such components
in network operator's single-mode fiber transmission networks and to permit economical planning and engineering.
The new issue of GR-1209 contains updated generic and reliability assurance requirements for passive optical components, and now has
added value for system developers and component manufacturers.
Used with GR-1221, Issue 3, Generic Reliability Assurance Requirements for Passive Optical Components, these documents assure
that optical devices function satisfactorily for long periods under adverse environmental conditions.
- Requirements for the efficient and cost-effective operation of components in various environments
- Requirements for specific packaging and shipping tests
- Aligns with general industry specifications for system developers
- Aligns with critical NEBSTM requirements developed since the last issue of GR-1209
- Fully aligned vibration and impact requirements to simplify testing.

Issue 4 of GR-1209, Generic Requirements for Passive Optical Components, replaces Issue 3.
GR-1073, Issue 2, Generic Requirements for Single-Mode Fiber Optic Switches, now aligns with GR-1209.
GR-1209 replaced TA-NWT-001209, TR-NWT-001209, TR-TSY-000901, and TA-NWT-000442.
