national, state, and local laws.
What must each locking terminator have inside?
an internal 75-ohm resistor to terminate the signal
Why must extra cable be left at splice locations at sidewalks and driveways?
to prevent pull-out caused by frost heaving.
what 2 tags must be placed on every aerial drop?
drop address tag
ANSI/SCTE 01 2015
Specification for "F" Port, Female, Outdoor
Cable used for underground installations must have what type of jacket?
conduit for underground drops must be buried to a minimum of
ANSI/SCTE 153 2016
Drop Passives: Splitters, Couplers and Power Inserters
All passive and active equipment shall support a minimum forward bandwidth of
MHz to 1,002 MHz (1 GHz)
All new drop installations must used these for dead-ending messengered drop cable.
approved drop clamps
Clip guns must use what to prevent crushing the cable?
half-round plastic insert
to use Bonding option 6, the bond must be made within ___ feet of where the metal underground pipe enters the structure
BER Pre-FEC Minimum Threshold at CPE
grounding conductor for bonding Series-11 or QR-320 drop cable.
What is only location span clamp can be attached to?
When is Series-11 or QR-320 cable permissible?
only for aerial drops greater than 150 feet in
length in situations where its use will improve RF forward signal levels to within
acceptable ranges as defined in Section 9 of this standard, and will therefore eliminate
the need for RF signal amplification in the home.
If power service equipment is not within 30 feet of the mobile home, what should technician bond to?
grounded metal I-beam underneath the mobile home.

RoFG connectors at the NID/NIU must support what type of connector?
APC end faces
EPON connectors at the NID/NIU must support what type of connector?
UPC end faces
Bonding option 6 can only be attached within
first five feet inside
minimum of _______ of metal pipe underground to use bonding option #6

1 1/2 inches
minimum angle of bend of grounding conductor
bond blocks must accommodate wire sized from
#10 AWG to #12 AWG
