2 EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
2.1 SYSTEM DIAGRAM

Figure 1: RX-8123 System Diagram As shown in the above figure, the downlink BS signals go through DT port to the system and then to downlink by duplexer separation. The DL signals will go through DT duplexer then to AFC digital processing module for digital filtering and self-oscillation elimination. Then the DL signals will be sent to downlink PA to amplify power and filter via duplexer. After amplification, the signals are transmitted at the MT port to the service antenna. On the UL, the signals transmitted by the mobile go through MT integration duplexer and AFC digital processing module then to uplink PA to power amplify and filter via duplexer, finally get back to BS by donor antenna.

Observation Activate the OMT Main window. The system Initialization will completed in about 2 minutes. Click Connect button to enquire the repeaters status. Proceed if there is no alarm; else check the failure and attend to the alarm. Keep RF switch ON and set the channel number of the repeaters operating frequency. Observe DL input power from measured value. Align the direction of donor antenna until the DL input power reading is maximized. Note: To ensure that the measured DL input power is accurate, one should set the DL ATT to 0 before performing the check. Go to [Properties Info] and set [Equipment ID]. Enable the power supply by selecting On in [RF] -> [Switch]; go to [Properties Info.] -> [Comm. Config.] and set OMC Phones No. , the service No. of SMSC, Report Mode. Select the equipment controlled and monitored parameters. If the external devices are connected to the equipment for management, please enable in the [External Alarm Info.] Interface. Use test-handset to verify field intensity within the coverage area. If needed, realign the service antenna to achieve the desired coverage. Note: If during operation, the equipment gain could not be set to maximum or the output power is not high enough due to insufficient donor and service antennas isolation, then the antennas position should be changed to increase isolation. If the output power is too high and ALC is activated, then adjust the DL ATT to achieve optimal DL Gain. Adjust UL gain and perform test calls. Typically, the UL gain is set around 5dB less than DL gain. Perform test calls in the coverage area while adjusting UL gain if required. Note: If the repeater is near the BTS and the test call performance is poor, this may be due to UL noise interference to the BTS. Users can calculate and determine if the repeater UL noise will interfere with the BTS. Verify again that there is no unacceptable interference to BTS. Table 3: Commissioning

Figure 12: Switch Self-oscillation opposed switch: if the switch off , the repeater is the same as the normal repeater; if the switch is on, the repeater can work under the condition of the isolation of DT and MT antenna is more than the value of the gain minus 15dB. Self-oscillation control switch: if the repeater cant oppose the oscillation, and the switch is on, the repeater will set the ATT to decrease the system gain itself according to the isolation. RF Switch: Turn off DL PA and UL PA. Config: Select the required state in setting columns of RF information window for RF switch, then press [Enter] or [Config] button to finish the configuration operation.
