@vantage NB-880

Think complete. Care for detail.

Siemens Communications Mobile Networks

Powerhouse performance in a persuasive package

Better, not bigger.

The latest in a line of rugged, versatile Siemens 3G W-CDMA FDD Macro Node B offerings, the @vantage NB-880 is a product of experience. A third generation Node B, it brings tremendous benefits to customers with its vastly enhanced technology and the insight born of countless deployments. Boasting twice the capacity of its predecessor, the ultra efficient @vantage NB-880 cuts energy costs by 30 percent. Fully backwardcompatible with widespread @vantage NB-44x modules and designed to support the @vantage NB-44x feature set, the @vantage NB-880 incorporates the latest features and technology. Best of all, it is ready for emerging innovations such as remote radio heads. Spare capital and leave a small footprint The @vantage NB-880 delivers the kind of performance that can make OPEX savings soar: Designed for ultra low power consumption, it generates less heat, sparing energy, resources and overhead. While the forerunner generation supported 500 voice channels, the new @vantage NB-880 line doubles capacity to 1,000. The @vantage NB-880 reduces power consumption by a third, saving operators an impressive 30 percent in energy costs. It uses digital signal processing algorithms to boost the power amplifiers efficiency (realized in CAT). Hardware modules are interchangeable with @vantage NB-44x models, reducing overhead for spares and logistics. Whats more, a single software load is able to update all different module types, thereby significantly cutting the costs of upgrading software and training staff. And the @vantage NB-880 supports triedand-true features such as remote antenna down-tilt adjustment via Radio Commander (RET), adding to the solutions convenience and manpower efficiency. Geared for greatest flexibility Its ability to cut CAPEX is equally impressive. Offering all but unlimited scalability, expandability and upgradeability, these nodes provide a perfect fit for every MNO, business plan and market scenario. A tall order to fill, the Node B family is able to meet every expectation, from single-carrier, single-sector configurations (1/0/0) up to full-blown four-carrier, three-sector configurations (4/4/4) designed to deliver ultra high performance. And with this remarkable degree of flexibility, the @vantage NB-880 is the perfect choice for rising to the demanding challenges of mass rollout. Here today, ready for tomorrow Third generation Node B architecture is future-proof: Engineered specifically to satisfy todays demands, it is also prepared for new services and applications such as HSDPA, as well as other advances the future will bring. Siemens charted an evolution path from todays @vantage NB-880 to a full-fledged radio server on the same hardware platform, with full backwards compatibility to support installed nodes. Ready to handle heavy data traffic and facilitate migration to HSDPA (as @vantage NB-44x family), smart antennas and IP, the Node B line safeguards MNOs investments for many tomorrows to come.

Innovation: CAT technology less power consumption DRIC digital radio interface card CPRI interface flexible architecture prepared for RRH


Highlights Up to 4/4/4 configuration and up to 1,000 gross voice channels in one rack/shelf Up to 80 W per sector / 80 W per cell with optional TX diversity RX diversity included; TX diversity optional Variable line interfaces enable operators to freely choose rollout capacity and transmission features. Line interface cards support transmission features such as CES, IMA and Fractional ATM to maximize capacity and utilization of incumbents legacy transmission networks. Load-sharing among channel cards minimizes downtime. Small footprint just 1400 x 600 x 450 mm Channel card handles both traffic and common channels, considerably enhancing baseband resources. Channel bank for baseband capacity ensures baseband resources are used most efficiently. In addition, users in Softer Handover do not require additional baseband resources. Low-level TX spurious emission facilitates isolation in GSM BTS collocation scenarios. Optional remote electrical tilt reduces interference and provides a redundancy alternative.

Key features at a glance All for one, one for all: five module types; one software load Fully compliant with CPRI for separating control and radio functionality Low power consumption (typically 623 watts for 1/1/1) High output power (CAT40) Channel card supports 100 channel elements Same HSDPA capability as the @vantage NB-44x family (with software update only) Ready for future evolution: Remote Radio Heads (macro, micro pico), Radio Server, Radio over Fiber, Node B hoteling Supports the @vantage NB-44x familys proven feature set: RET functionality Baseband capacity pooling TMA support RX diversity Ready for TX diversity Core Controller, Channel Card and DRIC redundancy ATM switching capability supports flexible star, hub and cascade configurations to cut transmission costs
