reliability

the extent to which a product fulfils its function over a period of time.

The reliability of a product depends upon its design characteristics, the quality of materials and components embodied within it and the care with which it is made and assembled.

A product's reliability is an important part of its performance in use and thus affects the appeal of the product to customers and the likelihood of their buying it. See BRAND LOYALTY. See QUALITY CONTROL, FAILURE RATE CURVE, PARALLEL SYSTEM.

The MTTR for all the components from ONU to WB segment are similar since they are all located outdoor; thus their severity rating will just depend on the number of MCs affected.
MTBF = 0.1430274136 hours while MTTR = 0.0019444444 hours (7 seconds) (total mean time for system reload after fault detection).
In particular, the MTTF and MTTR are provisioned to each node so as to determine when the node is in a failure or normal operation state.
