I agree, sounds like FCAPS
                        ^
which is often used in discussions of full-blown network managements systems
and is described in various standards documents.  However, I believe the "P"
has traditionally been for Performance vice Provisioning.

I have heard a whisper about a network equipment evaluation
standard called
FCATS.  I have never heard of it (only NEBS) and I can not find any
information on it.  All my searches turn up information on
the Florida
standardized tests but nothing regarding technology evaluation and
reporting.  Does anyone have a hint I can follow to find
information, like
maybe what the acronym stands for?

Thanks,

Maybe you are referring to FCAPS. It stands for Fault
Configuration Accounting
Provisioning and Security.  This is used to represent the various
functionalities that a network equipment is typically
required to support.

I personally have not heard of FCATS in reference to network
equipments.
