Recommendation ITU-T L.92 gives an overview of the technical considerations for protecting outside plant facilities from natural disasters. Disaster management for outside plant facilities such as cables, poles and manholes are introduced, and countermeasures for natural disasters such as earthquakes, strong winds and floods are described. In the appendices, Korean and Japanese experiences of disaster management are respectively introduced. Also, answers to a related questionnaire are also included to provide basic information about natural disasters around the world. The objective of this Recommendation is to share observations, knowledge, experiences and practices internationally, so that local engineering practices can be adopted to improve the disaster resistance performance of outside plant facilities.
