ABSTRACT: Issue 1 of GR-3142, Generic Requirements for Intelligent Network Interface Devices (iNIDs) presents the Telcordia view of the
proposed generic requirements applicable for an Intelligent Network Interface Device (iNID). The iNID is intended for use with Very
High Speed Digital Subscriber Line (VDSL) over short loops supporting broadband services to the subscriber, delivering voice, data, and
video services all over Internet Protocol (IP) technologies.
The information in the criteria may be useful to anyone engaged in the manufacture of outdoor telephone iNIDs intended for
connection to service provider facilities and/or equipment, and to anyone who may purchase, operate, or use such equipment.
Issue 1 of GR-3142:
Contains all the general, electrical, mechanical, and environmental requirements for iNIDS
Helps users, suppliers, and manufacturers properly access, test, and review iNID products
Facilitates significant cost savings in potential field implementation issues through proper testing of products with GR-3142
