Outside Plants

Natural disasters place a significant burden on most economies. Network damage caused by natural disasters may be mitigated if networks are designed and deployed to be resilient.
 
This programme will assist Member States in designing and deploying resilient network infrastructure, by producing guidelines/handbooks on the standardization of telecommunication outside plant in areas frequently exposed to natural disasters.
 
The guidelines/handbooks will address planning, including selection of appropriate geographical sites; design; deployment; and operation and maintenance of the outside plant of telecommunication networks.
