Outside Plant Power Recommended Preventive Maintenance Procedure

The intent of this document is to serve as a reference for cable technical personnel on how to do a proper preventive maintenance visit on outside plant cable power systems. As network reliability expectations increase, the powering sub-systems of the network must be depended on for near-perfect operation. The procedure in this document will help guide the reader through proper maintenance procedures for power systems, inclusive of power supplies, batteries, transponders and enclosures, resulting in optimal system performance and reducing outages and unnecessary truck rolls.
