3.7.3 Installing the RF Jumper of the RRU/SRXU
The RF jumper of the RRU can be categorized into two types: feeder jumper and interconnect jumper. The antenna jumper of the RRU/SRXU can be connected to the feeder or directly to the antenna. The interconnect jumper transmits RF signals between two RRUs or two SRXUs.

Context
If the distance between the RRU/SRXU and the antenna is shorter than 14 m, use an antenna jumper of fixed length to connect the RRU/SRXU and the antenna. For details of the connections of the RF jumpers in different networking modes, refer to 2.3.6.3 RF Jumper Connections of the RRU.
NOTE

Use a torque wrench to tighten the DIN connector to 27 N·m.

Procedure
l To install an antenna jumper between the antenna and the RRU/SRXU, perform the following steps:
NOTE

Connect the antenna jumper to the appropriate RF port according to the configurations.
