Improved BTS Site CAPEX and IMPEX
Shelter / equipment room can be
avoided by outdoor BTS
installation. Modular, small and
light BTS minimizes also required
civil work cost
Antenna line civil work and
component cost can be minimized
by locating BTS close to the
antennas (maximizes also cell
capacity)
In indoor installations additional air
conditioning is not needed due to
low power consumption

Flexi WCDMA BTS Installation
Objectives
After the completion of this chapter, the participant will be
able to:

Examine a Nokia Siemens Flexi WCDMA BTS for
correct installation
Work Order
Handling the modules and unpacking the
delivery
Preparing the modules for installation
Installing the stand-alone BTS on the floor
Fixing adapter mechanics to plinth
Mounting the stand-alone BTS on the wall
Mounting the stand-alone BTS on the pole
Installing modules inside Nokia cabinet
Installing optional modules
Installing transmission sub-module
Grounding the BTS
Connecting external power feed

Handling the Modules and unpacking delivery
ESD ANTI-STATIC WRIST
STRAPS SHOULD BE WORN
WHEN HANDLING ANY UNIT
WHICH DISPLAYS THE ESD
LOGO
When handling the modules,
always use the antistatic wrist
strap as shown in the
Connecting the antistatic wrist
strap figure below. The cabinet
must be grounded, otherwise
the antistatic wrist strap will not
work. Refer to Grounding the
BTS section.
After mounting the Plinth,
attach the site ground.

Clearances
Anchoring the plinth on the floor

Without maintenance Space
With maintenance Space
Recommended installation order
Check that the plinth is installed
correctly.
Actual stacking
configuration may vary
Installing modules on the floor

Installation example: modules on the floor

Fixing adapter mechanics to plinth

Adapter mechanics brackets are installed on
the plinth in wall and pole installations
Mounting the stand-alone BTS on the wall


A plinth is required
for mounting the
modules on a wall
Check that the plinth
adapter mechanics
are installed as
instructed in Fixing
adapter mechanics
to plinth section.
Mounting a second plinth on the wall

Mounting the modules on a wall

One mounting plinth per two modules is
installed on a wall. Refer to
Mounting the plinth on a wall for plinth
installation instructions.
Mounting the stand-alone BTS on the pole

NOTE: There are different
lengths of bolts and places
for bolts in the bracket.
Mounting the plinth on a pole

Recommended module installation order

Do not install more than
two modules per plinth
The modules must be
installed with front panels
facing left or right. Do not
install modules so that the
front panels face up or
down.
Mounting the modules on the wall or pole
1 Tip
Line up the locating marks in
the module to help aligning
the holes with fixing studs.
4 Tip
Use the markings in the
module to help aligning the
holes with fixing studs.

Installing optional modules

Flexi power module (FPMA) consists of connector blocks and four slots for
AC/ DC sub-module (FPAA) or battery sub-module (FPBA).

FPMA can include:
. two FPAAs and two FPBAs
. three FPAAs and one FPBA
. one FPAA and three FPBAs
. one FPAA and three free slots for expansion.

Grounding the BTS


When modules are installed
inside a cabinet, separate
module grounding is not
required.

If the BTS has more than one
plinth (for example in wall or
pole installations), connect the
main ground to one of the
plinths and ground all the
modules to that plinth.
