Difference between BBU+RRU and General Node B

A distributed base station consists of two separately-developed, mutually-independent parts. It uses optical fibers instead of many radio frequency cables to reduce feeders and save costs significantly. This results in decreased project costs, improved networking flexibility, and convenient installation.

BBU+RRU - A More Effective Way to Deal with Equipment Room Shortage


Setup Method
Use the B8200 + RRU networking mode; Place the baseband pool equipment in the 19" rack, or mount it on the wall in the existing equipment room; Lay the antenna feeder plane optical fiber from the baseband p pool equipment q p room to the p planned 3G site; Use outdoor RRU at the planned 3G site for coverage.

BBU+RRU Base Station Solves Feeder Overlength Problem


Signal loss in feeders will result in degraded coverage performance. The 2G Hz radio frequency signal travels in feeders at a loss of 7dB/100 and 7dB/100m, d 900M H Hz 4dB/100 4dB/100m. Generally, the feeder length of 3G sites is 50 meters, with a signal loss of about 4dB. RRU makes RF be p possibly y closest to the antenna to minimize the signal loss in feeders. By using BBU+RRU, signal loss in feeders can be reduced to less than 1dB.

Outdoor Installation of RRU - L-Type Mounting Mode Installation Example:

Installation requirements: There should be no object that affects normal outlets or connections in the 250mm installation space under the RRU.

Indoor Installation of RRU

When installing the RRU indoors, configure six RRUs, one DC power distribution box (one DC power distribution box supports six RRUs), and one combiner/bridge g for each set. Indoor or outdoor lightning protection boxes are not required. Each RRU set needs one DC power distribution box MCB (One DC power distribution box supports six RRUs. The rated current of the MCB switch should be higher than 16A). Use 25mm2 blue black power cables bl t to connect t th the DC power distribution di t ib ti cabinet bi t with ith each h DC power distribution box. Install a grounding bar besides each RRU set. If two RRU sets are close to each other (less than 3m), they can share a grounding bar. Connect the protective ground of the MCB to the RRU grounding bar by using 16mm2 yellow green grounding cables cables.

Generally, there are two modes to install the RRU indoors: Wall mounting is preferred. If the wall is too thin (or made of sand or wood) to provide enough bearing capacity capacity, it is recommended to make a back-to-wall support on site. Refer to the wall-mounting BBUB above. If wall mounting is impossible, it is also acceptable to use a floorstanding mounting support that can bear four RRUs RRUs. Mount the MCB on the nearest wall.

RRU Cable Types


1. DC Power Cable Currently ZTE delivers many models of DC power Currently, cabinets (such as H900, H151, T601, and W121) that are configured with two types of switches: 63A and d 32A 32A. It is i recommended d d to t connect t each h RRU set to a 63A switch and connect the B8200 (3G) to a 32A switch during g the first-phase p installation. If an old DC power supply equipment is used, it is recommended to connect each RRU set to a 63A switch and connect the B8200(3G) to a 32A switch switch, If the old switch does not meet specifications, replace it with a qualified one.

RRU Cable Types


Outdoor Cabling Requirements The selection of outdoor cables between indoor lightning protection box (one supports three RRUs) and outdoor lightning protection box (one supports two RRUs) should follow the principles below. If the cable length is less than 50m 50m, use 6mm2 dedicated two-core two core cables cables. If the cable length is between 50m and 145m, use 16mm2 dedicated two-core cables. If the cable length is between 50m and 80m, it is also acceptable to use 10mm2 dedicated two-core cables. If the cable length is between 145m and 290m, use 16mm2 dedicated two-core cables, but in this case, one outdoor lightning protection box only powers one RRU separately. Configure outdoor lightning protection boxes and outdoor cables as follows after completing the installation of each RRU set. If the outdoor cable length is less than 145m, the 2100M RRU and the 900M RRU should share one outdoor lightning protection box, and two to four 1800M RRUs should share one or two outdoor lightning protection box. In this case, each RRU set requires three outdoor cables. If the site is designed to accomodate UMTS equipment only, each RRU set requires only one outdoor td cable. bl If the outdoor cable length is between 145m and 290m, each outdoor lightning protection box can only support one RRU. In this case, each RRU set requires six outdoor cables. If the site is designed to accomodate UMTS equipment only, each RRU set requires only two outdoor cables. If the cable length g between the indoor lightning g gp protection box and the outdoor lightning g g protection box is more than 290m, it is recommended to position the RRU as close as possible to the B8200 during project survey, and make sure the cabling route is less than 290m. If it is impossible to meet such requirements, give up the site and find a new one. It is required to finish laying outdoor cables once and for all in the first-phase installation. Lay three or six outdoor cables for each RRU set. A surplus cable length of 3-5m should be reserved at the indoor B8200 side for the installation of the indoor lightning protection box during the second phase. The pre-laid cables at the RRU side should also provide a surplus length, and waterproof treatment should be made.

RRU Cable Types


Cabling Requirements in Outdoor Lightning Protection Box The inlet/outlet cables of the outdoor lightning protection box must be sealed by passing through the sealing ring of the box for good leakproofness. If the 16 mm2 outdoor cables cannot pass through the sealing ring ring, remove it it, and then lay the cables. Make sure the cable sequence is correct during the installation of the outdoor lightning protection box, as shown in the figures below.Note: The power cable that connects with the 2100M RRU must pass through the middle cabling hole. The end of the unused cabling hole must be sealed by winding two rounds of PVC insulating tape on it.

2. Outdoor Optical Fiber Configure optical fibers as follows after completing the installation of each RRU set. UMTS 2100M: 1 piece UMTS/GSM 900M: 900M 1 piece i GSM 1800M: 1 or 2 pieces Standby optical fiber: 1 piece Generally, lay five optical fibers for each RRU set. It is required to finish laying outdoor optical fibers once and for all in the first-phase first phase installation. Lay five outdoor optical fibers for each RRU set. Coil up the surplus length of optical fibers and place them at the RRU side. A surplus optical fiber length of 3-5m should be reserved at the B8200 side for the installation of the B8200 during the second phase. Waterproof treatment should be made to the pre-laid optical fibers. If the site is designed to accomodate UMTS equipment only, each RRU set requires only three outdoor optical fibers. fibers Each optical fiber must be tested by using optical multimeter before and after laying. Fill the detailed test results accurately into the Outdoor Fiber Test Record. Use optical multimeter to test the loop-back loss of the optical fibers. The optical fibers are in good condition if the loop-back loss is less than 1dB; otherwise, find out the reason or lay the optical fibers again. Do not lay the outdoor optical fibers at the places where they will possibly be trampled frequently. Otherwise, mount rigid PVC troughs or trough covers to protect the optical fibers. Both ends of the connectors of any pre-laid or unused outdoor optical fiber must be q pp with p protective caps. p Never touch any y optical p fiber connector with bare hand. equipped Waterproof treatment must be made to the outdoor connectors.

RRU Cable Types


Alarm Cable Connections between RRU and Outdoor Lightning Protection Box Connect the alarm cable of the RRU to the outdoor lightning protection box by using the white brown/brown wires at the dry contact 1, as shown in the figure below. Note: Strip off the alarm cable sheath until the wires show their colors (white brown/brown).

RRU Cable Types


5. Grounding Requirements of Outdoor Cables Both ends of each outdoor cable are grounded through the shielding layer of the cable fixed by a metal fastener in the indoor/outdoor lightning protection box. Protective grounding is made to the lightning protection box through grounding cables cables, and the mental fastener connects with the grounding of the lightning protection box, so no grounding cable is required at both ends of the outdoor cable. The 16mm2 cable cannot pass through the cabling hole on the outdoor lightning protection box until the cable sheath is stripped off. The cable clip in the outdoor lightning protection box can be used to clamp 16mm2 shielding cables. If there is no lightning strip on the roof, it is acceptable to ground the outdoor cable at both sides. No grounding is required in the middle middle, as shown in the figure below below. If there is a lightning strip on the roof, ground the outdoor cable at both sides when the cable length is less than 30m. If the outdoor cable length is more than 30m on the roof, ground it once per 20m.
