NEBS Compliance

Definition - What does NEBS Compliance mean?

NEBS Compliance refers to the conformance of a network product to the requirements of the Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) standard. Compliance to this standard indicates that a network product or a telecommunications equipment performs at its optimum capacity. This standard was developed by Bell Laboratories in the 1970s to handle the allocation of equipment and hardware for a Regional Bell Operating Company’s (RBOC’s) central location. As telecommunications technology has advanced, the NEBS standard has been helpful in providing directives for telephone setups, as well as for the physical protection of equipment.

Techopedia explains NEBS Compliance

NEBS is made up of a number of levels that refer to different aspects of equipment management and increased operational requirements. Whereas NEBS level 1 allows for a broader range of scenarios, 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. Telecom companies use these standards to evaluate the solvency of equipment systems for continual service.
