ILSCO, a manufacturer of industrial and specification grade compression and mechanical lugs revealed that its line of SureCrimp copper compression connectors and splices has been tested by Telcordia (News - Alert) and meets NEBS Level 3 requirements.
ILSCO now provides the largest availability of copper compression connectors that have been designed to measure up to NEBS Level 3 criteria, and can be integrated with both building wires and flex cables. The connectors can be installed with ILSCO compression tools as well as other companies’ compression tools, a press release revealed.
NEBS stands for "Network Equipment Building Systems" and is extremely well known in the telecommunications equipment industry as the most common set of safety and performance design guidelines within the United States. The prestigious NEBS Level 3 certification was given to ILSCO copper compression connectors and splices only after successfully passing extensive testing conducted by Telcordia Technologies.
The release states that in order to pass the suite of testing, the ILSCO connectors were forced to perform under multiple harsh conditions including vibration, lightning surges, salt fog, earthquake simulation, tensile and pull out strength and other test conditions.
NEBS compliant equipment is crucial for providers such as Local Exchange Carriers (LECs), Competitive Access Providers (CAPs), Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and Access Service Providers (ASPs), as these products offer providers a key competitive advantage of always being expected to perform at the top of their class in enterprise network environments. The ability to meet NEBS Level 3 requirements represents the high quality and enhanced performance reliability that ILSCO copper compression connectors and splices offer telecom providers.
