Paper Abstract

With many manufacturers supplying fiber optic components such as splices and connectors, it is necessary for users to define requirements for these components for their intended applications. Requirements should be realizable and should not lead to a cost penalty without substantial benefits. These generic requirements provide an understanding of customers' expectations and allows users to gage these products with a well-defined yard-stick. However, the requirements do change with advances in technology and changes in applications. Bell Communications Research (Bellcore) develops and publishes such generic requirements in documents referred to as Technical References to inform the industry of Bellcore's view of proposed generic requirements. This paper describes various Bellcore requirements for fiber optic interconnecting devices and exemplifies some of the criteria development processes and how the requirements have changed over the last decade.
