Benefits

UL offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive NEBS service offerings.

UL’s NEBS teams are uniquely qualified to guide our customers through the Telecommunications Carrier Group (TCG) requirements, regardless of where a product is deployed on the telecommunications network. Our dedicated team of technical experts and integrated testing programs helps businesses save time and money by completing all their testing and certification needs in one submittal.

As a fully accredited ISO 17025 independent test laboratory, UL is uniquely qualified to assist in determining the application and installation environment, the appropriate level of compliance and, thus the required test plan for a given product. And as one of the few laboratories in the world certified by Verizon as an Independent Test Lab (ITL), UL is uniquely qualified to test products to both Telcordia as well as TCG requirements.

UL experts serve on committees that help develop and revise telecommunications industry standards, including ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions), NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) and STEP (Sustainability in Telecom: Energy and Protection). Our expertise and world-class fire testing facilities made UL a natural to help develop NEBS' large scale fire tests (GR-63-CORE.)
