Premature failure of telecommunication equipment leads to network downtime, higher costs, increased maintenance and decreased brand loyalty. One of the most significant challenges for this equipment is withstanding the conditions of the environment in which it is installed.

Although a non-vented sealed enclosure can pass the IEC 60068-2-1 cold temperature test protocol, internal pressures can reach levels that result in compromised seals and premature device failure. As a result, many manufacturers find that after installation, their equipment does not maintain reliable performance for its expected lifespan even though it had passed the testing protocols for both water immersion and temperature cycling.
