In other SCTE news, the Society has begun development of SMS 002, Product Environmental Requirements for Cable Telecommunications Facilities. It focuses on environmental requirements for products to be used in cable facilities (customer premises equipment is excluded) and will include requirements for air flow and air quality, temperature, humidity, vibration and shock, power/electrical, and EMC. Priority requirements will address energy efficiency (including measuring and reporting metrics) and sustainability requirements such as recycling. Where possible, references will be made to existing standards that meet cable industry requirements.
