Grounding considerations

Only time synchronization cables specified for NT80E3-2-PTP-NEBS in DN-0186 must be used. The time synchronization cables must not be electrically connected directly to outside-plant cables.

Warning: The intra-building port(s) (external time synchronization connector) of the equipment or subassembly is suitable for connection to intra building or unexposed wiring or cabling only. The intra-building port(s) of the equipment or subassembly MUST NOT be metallically connected to interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring. These interfaces are designed for use as intra-building interfaces only (Type 2 or Type 4 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE) and require isolation from the exposed OSP cabling. The addition of Primary Protectors is not sufficient protection in order to connect these interfaces metallically to OSP wiring.
Warning: The intra-building port(s) (external time synchronization connector) of the equipment or subassembly must use shielded intra-building cabling/wiring that is grounded at both ends.

The NT80E3-2-PTP-NEBS SmartNIC must be installed in a CBN (common bonding network) per NEBS GR-1089.

The NT80E3-2-PTP-NEBS SmartNIC was evaluated as ITE (information technology equipment), which may be installed in central offices, telecommunication centers, offices, schools, computer rooms, and similar commercial type locations. The suitability of the SmartNIC for other product categories and environments (medical, industrial, residential and so on) other than an ITE application, may require further evaluation.

Altitude considerations

No special requirements are needed for installations above 1829 m (6000 ft).
