ProLabs announced its completion of the Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) compliance test through Intertek. ProLabs SFP, XFP and QSFP transceivers have undergone NEBS testing criteria for standards GR-63-CORE and GR-1089-CORE. The compliance test involves testing the products in extremities to ensure that they can resist temperature, vibration and humidity. The test also measures space planning, installation and energy efficiency.
"Through our longstanding commitment to U.S. service providers, responsible for building and maintaining connectivity for our communities, it was important to invest in the most thorough and stringent testing methods that certify our products as safe and reliable," said Patrick Beard, chief technology officer at ProLabs. "This allows us to further drive partner and public confidence in our end to end network infrastructure solutions."
NEBS is made up of levels that refer to different aspects of equipment management and operational requirements. NEBS level 1 allows for a broader range of scenarios, and NEBS level 3 requires that the equipment meets the requirements of specific GR-63-CORE and GR-1089-CORE standards that anticipate long-term network needs.
In addition to being NEBS compliant, ProLabs' product lines, including optical transceivers and cabling, are also MSA, TAA, and RoHS compliant.
