Generic Requirement (GRs)

Order telecommunications generic requirements documents

The Information SuperStore features information products that are widely utilized, referenced, and accepted worldwide. Many of our Generic Requirements (GR) documents and special reports on telecommunications equipment, systems, and services are developed with industry participation, making them timely, high-quality, vendor-neutral technical specifications that are valuable to suppliers and service providers.

Our Generic Requirements (GRs) and Special Reports (SRs) are historically referred to as "Telcordia" or "Bellcore" requirements. Effective January 2012, Telcordia Technologies, Inc., was acquired by Ericsson. We will continue to provide vendor-neutral services to the industry, including GR development services. For GR development and consulting, we remain fully committed to the industry and will continue to operate in an independent manner.
