Recommendation ITU-T L.92 deals with an overview of technical considerations on protecting outside plant facilities from natural disasters. Disaster managements 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 appendix, Korean and Japanese experiences for disaster managements are respectively introduced, and answers to the 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.
