CE+T America Obtains NEBS Level 3 Certification

CE+T America’s MIPS System, the T1-PS (Tier 1 Power System) received NEBS Level 3 Certification from National Technical Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTSC).

Network Equipment Building Systems (NEBS) testing is required in the U.S. for equipment operating in the carrier networks of the former Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOCs) and Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs). Today, that includes AT&T, CenturyLink and Verizon. To obtain NEBS Level 3 Certification, the T1-PS (Tier 1 Power System) was subjected to a multitude of extensive tests regarding Ambient Temperature and Humidity, Equipment Handling, Resistance to Fire, Earthquake Survivability, Vibration, Airborne Contaminants, ESD, Emissions, and AC Power Fault. Complete compliance to all NEBS specifications ensures the user that the equipment being installed is compatible with a typical RBOC central office.

“This is a major milestone for our US division. It opens up an additional market sector which represents unprecedented growth opportunities for a company that entered the US market four years ago. NEBS Level 3 is the highest level of conformance to NEBS specifications. It certifies that our product possesses the capability to operate in a potentially adverse environment and will not affect other network equipment.”, says Brian Garner, Director of Sales for CE+T America.
