Verizon will only accept test reports from laboratories it has audited and approved under any one of its recognition programs. MET is certified by Verizon to do these NEBS tests in Baltimore, Maryland, and in Santa Clara and Union City, California:
MET is a recognized Verizon ITL that is certified to conduct energy efficiency testing on telecom products purchased by Verizon. MET evaluates NEBS products to the VZ.TPR.9205 document to generate a Telecommunication Equipment Energy Efficiency Rating (T.E.E.E.R).
The products that require TEEER testing include:
- AC- and DC-Powered Equipment
- Customer Premise Equipment (External Power Adaptors)
- Data Center Equipment
- Transport Equipment
AT&T and Quest are waiting for the A.T.I.S (Alliance for Telecommunication Industry Solutions) to complete an energy efficiency standard for telecom products before they adopt a similar energy efficient requirement.
MET is approved by Verizon as an ITL for Qualification Requirements for Printed Board Assemblies Manufactured with Lead-Free Solder to VZTPR document VZ.TPR.9307.
MET performs the testing required in the revised Verizon VZTPR document VZ.TPR.9203 which details wireless requirements by location for testing to GR-63-CORE Issue 3 (environmental simulation), GR-1089-CORE Issue 4 (electromagnetic compatibility and safety), and VZ.TPR.9205 TEEER (energy efficiency).
