Replaces TA-NWT-001435 Issue01

    ABSTRACT: GR-1435 provides generic requirements and characteristics required of singlemode multi-fiber optical connectors used for joining singlemode optical fibers. This GR document represents the expressed needs of participants in the GR-1435 Telcordia Technical Forum (TTF) and may thus meet the needs of other telecommunications service providers as well.

    Various generic requirements, desired features, and characteristics of singlemode multi-fiber optical connectors, including performance tests for comparing such products against the stated criteria, are contained in GR-1435.

    The new issue of this valuable technical resource has numerous modifications, including, but not limited to:

    • Alignment with the structure and content of GR-326 and GR-2866
    • Expanded document scope to address a broader range of cable media types
    • Updated optical performance acceptance criteria for various applications
    • Combined Performance Criteria and Performance Test Methods/Procedures into the section on Service Life Tests
    • Alignment of many aspects of environmental tests with those of GR-326 and updated with separate sequences for controlled and uncontrolled environment multi-fiber optical connector applications
    • Revised mechanical tests with mechanical loads modified for various media types to align with current industry testing standards and connector designs
    • Updated Extended Service section to combine all criteria and test methods/procedures for longer-term performance assessment, and reference of GR-1221 for reliability assurance of multi-fiber connector assemblies.
