ABSTRACT: GR-3177 sets forth proposed generic technical requirements and characteristics of electrical protection systems for use in wireless
Fiber to the Antenna (FTTA) applications. The initial focus of GR-3177, Issue 1, is on electrical protection for outdoor tower and
rooftop applications. This includes connections between local and remote base stations. The systems use optical fibers to carry
information; the electrical conductors are used to transmit power.
Proposed functional design criteria.
Generic environmental, mechanical, optical, and electrical protection performance requirements.
Test methods for comparing the electrical protection products against the stated generic requirements.
GR-3177 is intended for manufacturers, buyers, Independent Testing Laboratories (ITLs), and users of FTTA electrical protection. It
is intended to specify sampling criteria and test methodology information for ITLs to provide consistent and repeatable results for
GR-3177-CORE, Generic Requirements for Remote Radio Head Protection Used in Fiber to the Antenna (FTTA) Systems, is new.
When using GR-3177, you may want to refer to GR-3171, GR-3108, and GR-63. Components of this product are:
