BTS3900C(Ver.C)
Installation Guide 3 Overview

l Sites must be located at a place where earthquakes or strong noises are unlikely to occur.
l Sites must be far away from power stations, industrial boilers, and heating boilers.
l Sites must be far away from high-power radio transmitters, radar stations, or other
interference sources. The interference field strength cannot exceed the shielding
specifications of the base station for useless radiation.
l Sites must be far away pollution sources. If a site has to be constructed near a pollution
source, the site must be constructed in the upwind direction.
– Sites must be located at least 5 km (3.11 mi) away from heavy pollution sources,
such as a smelting plant or a coal mine.
– Sites must be located at least 3.7 km (2.30 mi) away from medium pollution sources
such as a chemical plant, a rubber plant, or an electroplating plant.
– Sites must be located at least 2 km (1.24 mi) away from light pollution sources such
as a food product factory or a leather product factory.
l Air intake vents of the communication equipment must be located far away from the
outlets of sewer pipes, septic tanks, or sewage disposal pools. Ensure that the equipment
is in positive pressure state and is free from corrosive gases. Otherwise, electronic
components and circuit boards may be corroded.

The Requirements for Indoor Site Selection


l The equipment room of an indoor site must be far away from a livestock house or a
fertilizer warehouse. If an equipment room has to be located near a livestock house or a
fertilizer warehouse, it must be located in the upwind direction.
l It is recommended that the equipment room of an indoor site be located in a floor higher
than the second. If this requirement cannot be met, the ground height of the equipment
room must be 600 mm (23.62 in.) higher than the maximum flood level in the local
history.
l The following recommendations are provided to optimize equipment rooms that are
sensitive to noise:
– Equipment is installed in places far from areas of human activity as much as
possible.
– Equipment rooms are not located adjacent to bedrooms of residents. If an
equipment room has to be adjacent to bedrooms of residents, the equipment room
and the bedrooms should be separated by at least two walls.
– The areas for installing equipment are 5 m (16.40 ft) or further away from doors
and windows.
– The front doors of cabinets are facing towards a direction that people rarely pass by.
– The thickness of the floor in an equipment room is greater than or equal to 150 mm
(5.91 in.).
– Rubber pads are placed under equipment to reduce noise and solid-borne sound.
– Sound-absorbing materials are stuck to appropriate positions on walls in the
equipment room to reduce noise.

Installation Guide 9 Installing Cables

9.1 Cabling Requirements


Cables must be laid out according to the specified cabling requirements to prevent signal
interference.

NOTE
If a cable listed below is not required, skip the cabling requirements of the cable.

General Cabling Requirements


Bending radius requirements
l The bending radius of a 7/8'' feeder must be greater than 250 mm (9.84 in.), and the
bending radius of a 5/4'' feeder must be greater than 380 mm (14.96 in.).
l The bending radius of a 1/4'' jumper must be greater than 35 mm (1.38 in.). The bending
radius of a super-flexible 1/2'' jumper must be greater than 50 mm (1.97 in.), and the
bending radius of an ordinary 1/2'' jumper must be greater than 127 mm (5 in.).
l The bending radius of a power cable or PGND cable must be at least three times its
diameter.
l The bending radius of a fiber optic cable is at least 20 times of its diameter, and the
bending radius of a breakout cable is at least 30 mm (1.18 in.).
l The bending radius of an E1/T1 cable must be at least three times its diameter.
l The bending radius of a signal cable must be at least five times its diameter.

Cable binding requirements


l Cables of the same type must be bound together.
l Different types of cables must be separately laid out and bound, with a minimum
distance of 30 mm (1.18 in.) from each other.
l The cables must be bound tightly and neatly. The sheaths of the cables must not be
damaged.
l The cable ties must face the same direction, and those at the same horizontal line must be
in a straight line.
l The excess of the indoor cable ties is cut off. The excess of 5 mm (0.197 in.) of the
outdoor cable ties is reserved, and the cut surfaces are smooth without sharp edges.
l After cables are installed, labels or nameplates must be attached to the cables at their
ends, curves, and interconnection positions.

Security requirements
l When routing cables, avoid sharp objects, for example sharp edges on the wall. If
necessary, use tubes to protect the cables.
l When routing cables, keep the cables away from heat sources and use heat insulation
materials to insulate the cables from the heat sources.
l Reserve a proper distance (0.1 m or 3.937 in. is recommended) between equipment and
cables especially at the cable curves to protect the cables and equipment.

Indoor cabling requirements


l Route each cable into the room through the feeder window.

Issue 03 (2016-03-07) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 41


Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
BTS3900C(Ver.C)
Installation Guide 9 Installing Cables

l Reserve drip loops for all cables outside the feeder window before routing them into the
room. Ensure that the radiuses of the drip loops are greater than or equal to the minimum
bending radiuses of the cables.
l When routing a cable into the room, ensure that a person is assisting you in the room.
l Apply waterproof treatment to the feeder window.

Outdoor Cabling Requirements


l After being connected to a ground clip on power cables, a ground cable must be routed
downwards to prevent water from entering the equipment to which the power cables
connect.
l Protect outdoor cables against potential damage. For example, put the cables through
tubes.
l The cables to be protected include AC power cables, transmission cables, and cables laid
out underground.
l When routing cables through tubes on the ground below the cabinet, put a 30 mm to 50
mm (1.18 in. to 1.97 in.) length of the tubes into the base of the cabinet but do not put
the tubes into the cabinet. Use waterproof tape or waterproof silicon gel to block both
ends of the tubes and use sheet metal tabs to secure the tubes to the cable holes in the
base.
l When routing cables through tubes along a metal cable trough below the cabinet, do not
put the tubes into the base of the cabinet but cover the cable trough and connect the tubes
to the cable holes in the base.
l When routing RRU cables, ensure that the highest positions of the routes of all RRU
cables (except RF cables and AISG cables) are lower than the bottom of the RRU to
prevent water from entering the maintenance cavity of the RRU.
l Use clips to secure cables outdoors. For the method of installing a clip, see the
installation guide delivered with the clip.
l Arrange cables neatly along the routing direction and use clips to secure the cables.
l Determine the positions where the clips are installed according to the actual situation.
For example, 7/8" feeders are secured with clips at an interval of 1.5 m to 2 m (4.92 ft to
6.56 ft), CPRI fiber optic cables and power cables are secured with clips at an interval of
1 m to 1.5 m (3.28 ft to 4.92 ft). Ensure that the clips are evenly spaced and in the same
direction.
l When fastening cables with a clip, ensure that the cables are aligned neatly and are
routed through the holes in the clip. Do not stretch the cables too tightly.
NOTE

There are two types of clips: 3-hole clip and 6-hole clip, which are described as follows:
l A 3-hole clip is shown by illustration a in the following figure. It is often used to fasten feeders.
l A 6-hole clip is shown by illustration b in the following figure. It is often used to fasten power cables
and CPRI fiber optic cables.
