P487.3 - IEEE Draft Standard for the Electrical Protection of Communication Facilities Serving Electric Supply Locations Through the Use of Hybrid Facilities.

This standard presents safe and reliable methods for the electrical protection of communication facilities serving electric supply locations through the use of metallic wire-line components in part of the communication circuit and optical fiber systems in the reminder of the communication circuit. Hybrid applications have an equipment junction between the metallic wire-line and the fiber cable (CFJ or wire-line-fiber cable junction).This standard presents engineering design procedures for the electrical protection of communication facilities serving electric supply locations through the use of metallic wire-line components in part of the communication circuit and optical fiber systems in the remainder of the communication circuit. Other telecommunication alternatives such as radio and microwave systems are excluded from this document.
