The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) is an ANSI accredited standards development organization that develops technical and operational standards and solutions for the ICT industry.    The home page for its standards development enterprise is linked below:

Two of its consensus products have entered a revision cycle:

ATIS 0600010 Temperature, Humidity, and Altitude Requirements for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Equipment Utilized in Controlled Environmental Spaces

Scope:  This standard covers the minimum temperature, humidity, and altitude criteria for wireline and wireless telecommunications network equipment to be installed and utilized by service providers in controlled environmental spaces (e.g., Carrier Communication Spaces, Central Offices, MTSOs, Huts, CEVs, and customer premises). It describes test methodologies and test report criteria necessary for proper evaluation by interested parties, and those intending to deploy equipment in such environments (also called Class 1 environments).

This standard defines temperature and humidity ranges in which the equipment must operate, and provides test methodologies to evaluate equipment operation in those environments. The expectation is that equipment will continue to function properly and without degradation of performance when placed in these environments.

This standard covers the minimum temperature, humidity, and altitude criteria for telecommunications network equipment to be installed and utilized by service providers in controlled environmental spaces (e.g., Carrier Communication Spaces, COs, MTSOs, Huts, CEVs, and customer premises). It describes test methodologies and test report criteria necessary for proper evaluation by interested parties, and those intending to deploy equipment in such environments. The expectation is that equipment will continue to function properly and without any unexpected degradation of performance when placed in the temperature and humidity controlled environmental spaces defined in the standard. Equipment is also expected to function properly after exposure to other environmental stresses, such as experienced in high-altitude applications and during storage and transportation.

ATIS 0600010.01 Temperature, Humidity, Altitude, and Salt Fog Requirements for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Equipment Utilized in Outside Plant Environments

Scope. This standard covers the minimum temperature, humidity, altitude, and salt fog criteria for telecommunications network equipment to be installed and utilized by service providers in Outside Plant (OSP) environments. These environments include those found in OSP cabinets, enclosures, pedestals, etc., as well as those outside of protective enclosures. Test methodologies and test report criteria necessary for proper evaluation by interested parties and those intending to deploy equipment in such environments are also provided.

 This document defines Environmental Classifications based on the temperature, humidity, altitude, and salt fog ranges in which the equipment must operate, and provides test methodologies to evaluate equipment operation in those environments. Based on the intended usage, network equipment could be placed in one or more of the “Environment Classifications”.

 The expectation is that equipment will continue to function properly and without any unexpected degradation of performance when placed in these environments. Regardless of the operational environmental classification, equipment is expected to function properly after exposure to other environmental stresses, such as operational altitude and storage/transportation temperature-humidity. The test criteria defined in this document apply to all equipment.

In both cases, you may obtain an electronic copy from: dgreco@atis.org.  Send comments (with optional copy to psa@ansi.org) to: dgreco@atis.org

We keep all ATIS consensus products on the standing agenda of our twice-monthly Power & Telecommunications teleconferences and coordinate our comments with the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee.  See our CALENDAR for the next online meeting.
