Document Number GR-2923
Issue Number 02
Issue Date Feb 2010
ABSTRACT: This document presents the Telcordia view of generic requirements and objectives for Optical Connector Cleaning Products (OCCPs). OCCPs
are products designed for easy cleaning of optical connectors in the field. In the Telcordia view, these requirements should be met in
order to provide for satisfactory operation in a telecommunications environment. Users of this document may select from these
requirements those that are appropriate for a particular fiber optic application.
The document is also an effort to present fundamental issues that effect the performance of cleaning methods and their ability to
clean soils from various types of optical connectors.
This document includes significant background information, general requirements, desired features, generic optical requirements, and
test methods for comparing cleaning products and methods against the stated generic requirements. The specified test methods are
intended to reflect the typical telecommunications operational conditions for these optical connector cleaning products.
Issue 2 contains the following changes:
