Outside Plant is defined in the Customer-Owned Outside Plant (CO-OSP) Telecommunications Cabling Standard, as the "telecommunications infrastructure designed for the installation exterior to buildings". It is composed of the media, either copper or fiber, and the supporting structures required to link the serving facilities to outlying locations to provide for voice, data, video and other low-voltage systems.
You no longer need to be RCDD certified in order to sit for the OSP Specialty! If you are looking to further your OSP specialty while achieving the identification and visibility needed in the industry to connect with the opportunities that can lead you into the future, then our class allows you to review design principles for pathways and spaces, CO and cabling infrastructure, grounding and bonding, rights of way, and project management, plus much, much more!
Those awarded the OSP Specialty will demonstrate outstanding knowledge and expertise in all areas of CO-OSP, that will give them competitive recognition. To sit for the exam, you must submit the completed OSP Specialty Process and Exam application, submit required letters of reference and the required fees directly to BICSI, at least 30-days prior to the exam date of your choice.
