1 Repeater Technology
1.1 Basic Features
A basic feature of a mobile communication system is to transmit RF signals between base stations and mobile
radio equipment. If there is a blocking object such as a mountain or a building preventing the base station signal
to reach the mobile equipment, a repeater can be used to extend the base stations coverage area.

Node B

Node B MS/UE MS/UE

In the downlink path the repeater will pick up the signal from the existing transmitter via the donor antenna,
amplify it and re-transmit it into the desired coverage area via the server antenna. In the uplink path the repeater
will receive signals from mobile transmitters in the covered area and re-transmit them back to the base station.
Other repeater applications are indoor coverage, tunnel coverage, coverage extension in low traffic areas and the
possibility to install capacity in new locations without installing a new base station.
1.2 Repeater Types
1.2.1 Channel Selective Repeaters
Channel selective repeaters are mainly used for coverage of dead zones, shadows, in-building coverage or other
areas with inadequate signal strength. The output power of a channel selective repeater is sufficient to cover an
area shadowed by a building or other obstacle.
In a channel selective repeater each carrier is separately filtered, amplified and retransmitted.

A channel selective repeater system consists of one repeater unit complemented with one antenna facing the
donor base station, and another antenna directed towards the coverage area. The repeater site needs to be located
where the base station signal strength is large enough to be usable by the system. Ideally the repeaters donor
antenna should have line of sight (LOS) contact with the base station antenna. If the signal strength is high
enough, LOS may in some cases not be necessary.
Channel Selective Repeaters
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 12 (143)
The signal generated by the base station is picked up at the repeater site via the donor antenna. The repeater
filters and amplifies the signal before retransmitting it at the same frequency over the server antenna.
The isolation between the antennas at the repeater site has to be high in order to prevent degradation of signal
quality and risk of oscillation. Ways to achieve this can be large physical separation between the antennas,
usage of highly directional antennas with good front-to-interference ratio or external shielding between the
antennas. Another option is to use a Frequency Translating or a Band Shifting repeater (see descriptions below).
1.2.2 Band Selective Repeaters
Band selective repeaters have the same functionality as channel selective repeaters. The difference is that band
selective repeaters do not separate out specific carriers but amplify and retransmit all signals within a defined
frequency band.
1.2.3 Frequency Translating Repeaters
A frequency translating repeater provides output power levels comparable to a base station. The concept allows
for high gain without the high antenna isolation required for channel selective repeaters.
The frequency translating repeater consists of two units; one donor unit and one remote unit.

Remote unit
Server antenna

F1
Donor unit
RF Link Path

Link antennas
Repeater units


The donor unit is mounted at the base station site where the signal enters the repeater via a directional coupler.
In the donor unit, the signal is translated into another frequency, the link frequency, amplified and transmitted
via a link antenna. At the remote site, a link antenna picks up the signal and feeds it to the remote unit. The
signal is translated back into the original frequency and retransmitted over the server antenna.
Only 2 guard channels are needed between the radio frequency and the link frequency.
The isolation between antennas at the remote site seldom needs to be more than 75dB. This value that can be
achieved with a limited antenna displacement, often as low as 3 meters. The relatively modest isolation
requirement allows the use of omni-directional antennas for the service area.
Important applications for frequency translating repeaters are road coverage, rural coverage or for transferring
capacity from a base station to another area.
1.2.3.1 Donor Unit
There are two types of donor units single donor (SD) and double donor (DD).
A single donor (SD) unit has one input connector. The input signal from the BTS is split in two within the
repeater unit. In the opposite direction in the uplink the signals are combined within the repeater before
being sent to the BTS.
A double donor (DD) unit has dual inputs. This can be used in combination with a BTS that uses air combining,
and hence has a separate antenna for each TRU. A double donor unit can alternatively handle two signals from
two separate BTS.
Channel Selective Repeaters
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 13 (143)
1.2.3.2 Remote Unit
There are two types of remote units internal combining (IR) and external combining (ER).
In an internal combining (IR) remote unit output from the power amplifiers in the downlink is combined and
filtered before being passed on to the server antenna. In the uplink the signal is separated within the remote unit.
An external combining remote (ER) unit has two server antenna ports and the signal is combined in the air.
Since the ER model needs no combiner the output signal and gain is 3dB higher than in the IR model.
1.2.4 Band Shifting Repeaters
Band shifting repeaters are based on the same concept as frequency translating repeaters described above.
In contrast to a frequency translating repeater, which uses another frequency within the same band for the link, a
band shifting repeater uses another band. For instance can a repeater operating on the 900MHz band use the
1800MHz band for the link and vice versa. Other combinations are also possible.

By using another band for the link, the isolation between antennas at the remote site becomes very low. It might
in some applications even be possible to use the same antenna for both the link and the service area.

A fibre fed repeater can be either channel selective or band selective. It receives the RF signals from the base
station via a unit which translates the RF signal to an optical signal and sends it to the repeater via a fibre optic
cable. The repeater unit can be installed up to 4 km away from the base station.
Inside the tunnel leaky feeders or antennas can be used for transmission to the user equipment.

1.3 Repeater Applications
1.3.1 Channel Selective Repeaters
1.3.1.1 Shadow Coverage and Gap Filling
When there are coverage holes caused by buildings or mountains, a channel selective repeater can be used to
extend coverage into the dead zone. The building can sometimes be used as physical shield to create the
necessary antenna isolation.

The terrain is often seen as a limiting factor when striving for flawless radio coverage. The gap-filler repeaters
can be used as a complement to the network of base stations.
1.3.2 Frequency Translating Repeaters
1.3.2.1 Low Traffic Coverage
The example shows coverage extension in an area with low traffic by using frequency translating repeaters.
A two sector base station is extended with two frequency translating repeaters. Both donor units are mounted at
the base station site and connected to the base station via directional couplers.
Each repeater has a different link frequency and transmits the frequency of the opposite base station sector, thus
minimizing interference or multi-path propagation problems. A normal handover is performed between the
repeater coverage area and the neighboring base station coverage area.

1.3.2.2 Highway Coverage
One two-sector base station feeds two frequency translating repeaters, each covering an area comparable to the
base station. This is a way to get maximum coverage out of the one base station, with one connection point for
transmission.

BTS/Node B


Since antenna isolation requirements are low for frequency translating repeaters, omni-directional antennas can
be used at the remote sites to achieve good coverage.
1.3.2.3 Fake site Moving Capacity
In this application the base station is upgraded with an additional sector used for feeding a frequency
translating repeater to cover an area up to 20km away from the base station. This is an effective alternative
when no transmission point is available in the area to be covered. The frequency translating repeater moves
capacity from the base station site to the new location.

frequencies on two different bands.

1.3.4 Fiber Fed Repeaters
1.3.4.1 Tunnel Coverage
Fiber optic fed repeaters makes it possible to cover long tunnels from one or two base station sites nearby. The
OMU unit at the base station site can feed up to 24 repeaters. The repeaters distribute the signal in the tunnel
with antennas or radiating cables (leaky feeders).
Using leaky feeders is normally the most effective way to cover a tunnel, since the signal is evenly distributed
along the tunnel. Achieving good coverage in a train tunnel, for instance, using antennas can be difficult as the
trains tend to block signal propagation.
1.3.4.2 Open Area Coverage
A fibre optic fed repeater can be used in combination with an OMU to move the repeater away from the base
station to avoid antenna isolation problems.

In this example an OMU is placed at the base station site. The RF signal is tapped from the antenna by a
directional coupler, translated into an optical signal and sent to the repeater over a fibre optic link. At the
repeater site a fibre fed repeater receives the signal, translates it back to RF and sends it to the antenna. This
antenna can be for instance omni-directional because the distance to the base station is no longer a problem.

2 Software Overview
Axell Wireless mainly supplies three different types of software; Repeater firmware, Repeater Maintenance
Console and Axell Element Manager.
2.1 Repeater Firmware
The repeater firmware is the software inside the Control Module of the repeater. It is command line based, with
simple SET and GET commands. A rich variety of commands are available to control and monitor all
subsystems of the repeater from a normal VT100 terminal emulation program, such as MiniCom (Linux/Unix)
or HyperTerminal (Windows). This also means that any standard laptop is able to control a repeater without
additional software installed.
The repeater firmware has three main tasks:
Set and configure parameters in the repeater, such as channel numbers, gain, power levels, and different
report configurations
Monitor and measure alarm sources, alarm parameters and repeater utilization
Send reports and alarms to the repeater OMC
Communication with the repeater can be performed either locally on site or remotely via a built in modem. For
local communication a terminal with RS232 interface is needed. For remote communication a computer with a
modem is needed as well as a serial communications program such as HyperTerminal.
2.2 The RMC, Repeater Maintenance Console
RMC is an online software program with an intuitive graphical interface that simplifies control and installation
of the repeater. The RMC is a graphical shell for the repeaters Control Module. It reads commands and
attributes from the repeaters Control Module and displays them in an intuitive layout. This eliminates the need
to learn commands and attributes for controlling the repeater.
Login to the repeater can be made locally via the LMT port or remotely via a modem. As soon as the RMC is
connected it constantly polls the repeater for parameters such as power supply levels, in and out levels,
temperature, traffic, etc.
The RMC program can be installed from a CD. It is a Windows based application that runs on Windows 2000,
Windows 2003 Server, Windows XP and Windows Vista.
The Repeater Maintenance Console is available for all Axell Wireless repeaters.
2.3 The AEM, Axell Element Manager
AEM is a complete operations and maintenance centre for Axell Wireless repeater networks.
The AEM takes control of the repeater once the installation at site is completed. The repeater gets integrated
into the network and will be controlled by the Element Manager. During integration all repeater parameters and
statuses are downloaded into a database. The database is regularly updated with all incoming alarms and
reports, and will hence contain a copy of the repeater configuration so that current repeater information will be
accessible without setting up communication with the repeaters.
Communication between the AEM and the repeaters are message based. This means that the operator does not
have to await message delivery, but will be informed when the message is delivered to the repeater
The Axell Element Manager is a Windows based application that runs on Windows 2000 server, Windows
2003 Server, Windows XP and Windows Vista.
For more information please refer to the separate AEM Users Manual.

3.6.1 Control Module
The Control Module manages and controls the repeater and handles alarms. The Control Module keeps track of
all modules in the repeater based on serial numbers. Data is collected from modules within the repeater such as
MCPA, Radio Module and Fibre Optic Converter. The collected data is processed and if an error is detected the
Control Module may send an alarm via a built in modem or via Ethernet to an Operations and Maintenance
Center (OMC).
In addition to collecting data from all modules, the Control Module can also collect status of four external alarm
inputs connected to the External Interface board. The summary alarm status of the repeater can be indicated on a
relay port, available on the external interface connector. This relay can be used to indicate to external equipment
if the repeater is functioning properly.
Channel Selective Repeaters
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 26 (143)
The Control Module includes a Real Time Clock (RTC). The RTC keeps track of at what time alarms and
events occur. This RTC has its own backup battery in order to keep up proper time keeping even during long
power failures.
The Control Module contains a RS232 port used for local access to the repeater.
The Control Module can be configured in two different modes:
Stand-alone Mode in this mode all communication is made directly with the unit either locally or
remotely via a modem or Ethernet. The communication with the Axell Element Manager is performed
using a modem or Ethernet.
Systems Slave being a systems slave means all communications with the Axell Element Manager is
handled by the Control module in the OMU.

The Control Module has four LEDs which give information regarding the
status of the repeater and if someone is logged on to the repeater.
If the repeater is configured as a system slave the two LEDs Modem Power
and Modem Status do not fill any function and can be disregarded.

3.6.4 Fibre Optic Converter
A single band MBF repeater has only one Fibre Optic Converter. A dual or tri band repeater can have one, two
or three converters depending on the mixture of frequency bands and the requirements from the customer.
The Fibre Optic Converters contain both a receiver and a transmitter. The two optical signals are combined
utilizing WDM technology (Wavelength Division Multiplexing). Hence only one fibre is necessary for
transmission. The module also contains a function for the internal communication over the fibre.
The Fibre Optic Modules work in pairs in the system one in the OMU and one in the repeater. One of these is
a master (Optical Master Unit) and one is a slave (Optical Slave Unit).
The Fibre Optic Converter has a pilot tone generator that is used for detecting the optical path loss in the fibre.
This information can be used for compensation of this loss. Optical loss compensation is always initiated from
the Optical Master Unit. In the Optical Slave Unit the pilot tone is normally disabled, and only enabled upon
request (from for example the Optical Master Unit).
The Fibre Optic Converter contains two optical alarm sources. These are alarms for transmitted and received
optical signal level. The levels of the received optical signals can be monitored on-line via the RMC. This is
convenient during installation and tuning of the system. The module also has two alarm sources for the
communication between the master and the slave.
There are 6 LEDs on the
module to indicate the status.

3.6.5 RefGen, Reference Generator Module
The Reference Generator generates a stable reference frequency which is distributed to the radio modules of the
system. It is used as a reference signal in the synthesizer in the repeater and also in the microcontrollers in the
MCPA and Radio Module.
3.6.6 EAIM, External Alarm and Interface Module
Four external alarm sources can be connected to the alarm module, EAIM. These sources must generate a
voltage between 12 and 24 VDC. The presence or absence of this voltage will trigger the alarm depending on
how alarm thresholds have been configured in the controller software.
The module can also supply +15V to external alarm sources. The maximum allowed load on this supply is
100mA.
One relay contact closure is provided to reflect the status of the repeater. This can be used as a sum alarm.
For installation of external alarms see 5.4.7 Connect External Alarms
3.6.7 PSUP, Power Supply
The PSUP is fed by 110/230 V AC, 50/60 Hz or -48 V DC. The PSUP generates secondary DC voltages for the
repeater modules. The input is equipped with a surge, EMI, EMC suppression filter.
The -48VDC version of the power supply is designed to turn off if the supply voltage falls below -36V (1V). It
will turn on again as the supply voltage reaches -43V ( 1V).
On the Power Supply unit a rechargeable battery pack in mounted. This part also includes charging and
supervision electronics. The backup battery will provide the Control Module and modem with enough capacity
to send an alarm in case of input power failure.
The power supply module is connected to all other electronic modules via the distribution board.
The power supply has a switch which allows it to be set in on position or in stand by.
The battery can be switched on and off.

The signal from the antenna comes in to a duplex filter that separates and filters the uplink and downlink
signals. The signal is amplified in a LNA, split and fed to the channelizers in the LIMPAs.
In the channelizer the signal is mixed down to an intermediate frequency. Each channelizer is configured to
operate on a unique narrow frequency band.
After filtering, the signal is mixed back up to the original desired frequency and amplified in the power
amplifier. It is then fed to the combiner and further on via a duplex filter to the antenna.
4-channel repeaters have the same layout, but the signals are split into four parallel flows.

In the double donor the base station uses air combining which means that two signals are fed into the repeater.
In the downlink the signal is mixed in the channelizer with a reference signal and transformed into another
frequency the link frequency. In the uplink the original RF frequency is restored and fed back to the base
station.
There is no power amplifier in the uplink. The signal is fed directly into the base station via a 30dB coupler
and hence doesnt need a high output power.

Internal Combining

Internal combining means that in the downlink the output of the power amplifiers are combined, filtered
and sent to the antenna.
For external combining, as below, the output from each amplifier is filtered separately and transmitted out
on one antenna port each.
The output power in a ER (external combiner) is roughly 3dB higher than in an IR (internal combiner),
since the combiner causes a 3dB loss.

The signal from the OMU comes in to a fibre optic converter that translates the optical signal to RF. The signal
goes to a splitter which distributes the signal equally to the channelizers.
The signal is amplified in the power amplifier. It is then fed to the combiner and further on via a duplex filter
to the antenna.
In the uplink the same sequence is performed. At the end of the chain the signal is translated to an optical
signal and fed back to the OMU.

Standard OMU-Repeater application

A standard application for fibre fed repeaters, as illustrated above, consists of one or more Optical Master Units
and one or several fibre fed repeaters. The input signal to the OMU-Repeater system is tapped off a base
station
2
via a directional coupler. In the OMU the RF signal is converted into an analogue optical signal and
transported via optic fibre to the fibre fed repeater. The repeater converts the optical signal back into an RF
signal which is then amplified and transmitted via a server antenna. In the uplink direction the OMU receives
the signal from the repeater via the fibre optical cable, converts it to an RF signal and sends it back to the base
station via the coupler.
An OMU-Repeater system can be expanded to handle up to 24 repeaters, and cover a distance of to up to 20 km
of fibre between the OMU and the most distant repeater.
An Optical Master Unit, OMU, can be equipped with up to 6 fibre optic converters. If more than 6 repeaters are
needed in the network there are two ways of expanding the system.
Link several OMUs together. Up to 4 OMUs can be cascaded in this manner, and operate up to 24
repeaters as one system. When OMUs are cascaded only one is equipped with a Control Module and that
one manages the other OMUs.

Four OMUs cascaded in one system

A laser system with two colors can operate one repeater for each fibre optic converter in an OMU-Repeater
system one color is used for the uplink and one for the downlink. A laser system with up to six colors can
operate up to five repeaters per fibre optic converter. One color is used for the downlink which is the same

2
An OMU-Repeater system can also be fed from a repeater. In this case the signal is tapped from the repeaters
server antenna port. This repeater in its turn can be linked to an antenna that picks up the signal off air.

for all repeaters, and in the uplink each repeater uses its own color. The connection from one repeater to
the next is done via so called add-drop couplers. If needed these couplers can be designed to balance the
downlink signal to compensate for different distances to the repeaters.

Two repeaters are connected to the same converter in the OMU via the same fibre but the wavelength for the
uplink differs between the units. Slave 1: 1550 3 nm, Slave 2: 1510 3 nm. The downlink signal is the same
for both repeaters.

3.9.1 Access to the OMU-Repeater System
Axell Wireless repeaters and OMUs can be configured in three different ways as regards communication and
control. They can be stand-alone units, node masters or slaves.
Stand-alone units do not control any other unit or take control from any other unit. All communication with
a stand-alone unit needs to be made directly with the unit either locally or remotely via a modem or
Ethernet. Most stand-alone units are equipped with Ethernet and/or a modem for this purpose.
Node Masters keep track of the slaves that are connected to it. It is the single point of contact for alarm
reports and for heart beats in the entire system, and communicates with the AEM. All configuration and
control of all units in the network go through this Node Master. Most Node Masters are equipped with
Ethernet and/or a modem for this purpose.
Slaves are linked to a Node Master and contain a slave interface allowing for a Node Master to
communicate with the slave.
An OMU-Repeater system can be designed using repeaters that operate as slaves to the OMU or as stand alone
units regarding communication, configuration, alarms etc. Either all communication is handled by the OMU
that acts as a node master and the repeaters are slaves, or each repeater (and the OMU) handles this
communications and reporting separately.
The most common configuration is the master-slave set up which has several advantages:
All nodes can be reached from any node in the system. An operator can log in from any node in the system
and access all parameters in all nodes, including those in the OMU
Only one modem is needed for remote communication and configuration of the whole system
Since the communication runs on the same fibre as the RF, this arrangement gives a reliable supervision of
the radio link. If communication between the OMU and a repeater is broken, an alarm can be generated
immediately.
Several users at a time can be logged on to the system, for instance one locally via the RS232 interface and one
remotely via modem or Ethernet. Only one user at a time can be logged in remotely.
Note! If the network has an OMU from an earlier generation
3
, there are some limitations of what can be
accessed via a local login to a slave repeater.

The earlier versions of the OMU where called HUB.

4 Monitoring and Control
The repeater can be accessed on site via the Local Maintenance Terminal (LMT) port or remotely over a built in
modem or Ethernet in the repeater.
When an RS232 cable is plugged in to the LMT port, there are two options for communication; terminal mode
or RMC mode.
Terminal mode is accessed by using a terminal emulation software, such as MiniCom (Linux/Unix) or
HyperTerminal (Windows). Settings should be ANSI or VT100 emulation, baud rate 9600, 8 data bits, 1
stop bit, No parity and No flow control. A simple command language is used to control the repeater in this
mode.
Repeater Maintenance Console (RMC) mode allows configuration and control of the repeater via a user
friendly Windows software.
Note! All instructions in this chapter assumes that the repeater is controlled using the Repeater Maintenance
Console, RMC.
For use of the terminal mode please refer to the documents Common Commands and Attributes and GSM-
UMTS Commands and Attributes which contain detailed description of all attributes and commands.
Firmware Documentation Structure
The attached documents Common Commands and Attributes and GSM-UMTS Commands and Attributes
together describe all functionality in the repeater. The Common part contains functionality that is common for
most Axell Wireless repeaters of the latest generation and the GSM-UMTS part contains functionality that is
specific for this repeater type.
Help Functions
When being logged in to a unit using the terminal mode the command
HELP
will list all attributes and their modes of operation and display them in alphabetic order on the screen.
Further help regarding specific commands can be had by typing
I NF <command>
The INF attribute gives detailed information about a specific attribute.
4.1 Software Features - Overview
The firmware in the repeater controls and monitors all repeater parameters. Statuses and measured levels can be
read online via the RMC. This includes for instance voltage levels, RF-levels and temperatures.
In the event of a failure, an alarm is logged in the repeater. If the repeater is controlled by the AEM, the alarm is
also transmitted to the AEM. The repeater can be configured to handle alarms concerning a number of different
parameters. Each alarm can also be individually configured in a number of ways. The repeater stores
approximately 2 000 alarms in a local alarm log. The data stored regarding each alarm is the time at which an
alarm occurred and the alarm information which consists of alarm source, alarm severity, alarm attributes and in
some cases an additional alarm description.
On regular intervals, the repeater can send a heartbeat report to the AEM to confirm that the repeater is
functioning. The heartbeat message contains information about the RF-configuration and the alarm sources. It
ensures that the data communication from the repeater to the AEM is working properly. The latest 2 000
heartbeats (approximately) are stored in a log.
The Control Module keeps track of the exact repeater type it is controlling, and its performance parameters,
including maximum uplink and downlink gain, serial number of repeater, software version in Control Module,
controller hardware version, as well as hardware version of all included components.
The repeater can be equipped with a wireless modem (GSM, GSM-R, HSPA/UMTS, TETRA, GPRS) or a
PSTN modem mounted inside the repeater. The repeater is also equipped with Ethernet.
Channel Selective Repeaters
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 41 (143)
The Control Module contains a battery backed-up real time clock, which will stay active even during a power
failure. The real time clock is used for instance to keep track of when an alarm occurred, when to retransmit an
alarm and at what time of the day to send traffic report to the AEM.
If the repeater is controlled by the Axell Element Manager, the AEM will automatically time synchronize
repeaters, to ensure that the time is always set correctly in the entire repeater network.
4.2 Alarm System
The Axell Wireless repeaters contain a number of different alarm sources, both analogue and digital, to ensure
that the repeater works with desired performance.
Some alarms are only relevant for certain types of repeaters. For more detailed information about the alarms
please refer to GSM-UMTS Commands and Attributes.

The module for external alarms contains a relay output. The relay can be used to indicate the summary status of
the repeater. Each alarm source can be configured to be affecting the relay or not.
4.2.2 Alarms and End of Alarms
When the Control Module detects a failure in the repeater, an alarm is transmitted to the Axell Element
Manager, informing the operator about the error condition. When the alarm has ceased, an end of alarm is sent
to the AEM, stating that the alarm source is now OK.
Each alarm and end of alarm updates the AEM database with the latest status of the alarm source, ensuring
that the AEM operator always has the correct repeater status in the system.
To generate an alarm a number of consecutive measurements must first show an error state. This can be
configured for each alarm source separately.
To generate an end of alarm only one OK measurement is needed.

Alarm level
Time
Alarm threshold
Alarm is sent after three
seconds above threshold
End of alarm is sent as

If an alarm should constantly toggle between OK and ERROR the communications interface might be blocked.
To prevent this there is a parameter called Minimum Alarm Repetition Cycle. This parameter defines how many
minutes must elapse before a new alarm can be transmitted from the same alarm source.

Each alarm can be manually acknowledged using the Repeater Maintenance Console. However, if the repeater
is controlled by the Axell Element Manager, a manual acknowledgement of the alarm means that the AEM will

4.2.3.2 Alarm Acknowledgement using the Axell Element Manager
If the repeater is integrated to and controlled by the Axell Element Manager (via an OMU or directly), an alarm
is considered acknowledged when the alarm has been delivered to the AEM. Once delivered to the AEM, the
acknowledgement of the event is taken care of locally at the AEM, why no dial-back needs to be performed to
acknowledge the alarms in the repeater.

External Alarms
Four external alarm sources can be connected to the External Alarm module in the repeater. These can be for
instance fire alarms or external door sensors.
The alarm sources must generate a voltage between 12 and 24 VDC. The presence or absence of voltage will
trigger the alarm depending on how alarm thresholds have been configured in the controller software. Each
alarm can also be given a unique name.
The external alarms can be set as active high or active low
As for all alarm sources a delay can be set that defines how many seconds an alarm should be in error state
before an alarm is generated.

The module for external alarms contains a relay output. The relay can be used to indicate the summary status of
the repeater. Each alarm source can be configured to be affecting the relay or not.
Note! The relay status is not affected by the login / logout alarm parameters.
For installation testing purposes, it is possible to test the open / close function of the relay. This test procedure
makes sure the relay is closed for 3 seconds, then opens for 10 seconds, and finally closes for 3 seconds before
going back to original state.
The relay can be set to close or open to indicate an alarm. This can be changed by changing the polarity.

4.3 Repeater Heartbeat
On regular intervals, the repeater sends a heartbeat report to the AEM to confirm that the repeater is
functioning. The heartbeat message contains information about the RF-configuration and the alarm sources. It
ensures that the data communication from the repeater to the AEM is working properly.
The heartbeat interval can be set from 1 to 1440 minutes. Setting the heartbeat to 0 disables the transmission of
heartbeats.
Slave repeaters in OMU-repeater system send the heartbeat messages to the OMU. The heartbeats are sent on to
the AEM by the OMU.
4.3.1 Heartbeat Tasks
With the heartbeat reports, a number of tasks are carried out.
4.3.1.1 Ensuring Repeater to AEM Communications path
By configuring the repeater to regularly establish a connection to the AEM, the functionality of the data
communications path between the repeater and the AEM is verified. This ensures that for instance the alarms
will be transmitted properly.
If an expected heartbeat is not received by the AEM, an alarm is generated to the AEM operator. Reasons for a
heartbeat message failing to be delivered can be:
No power the repeater site might experience a power failure, and the battery backing up the Control
Module and modem is empty
Broken donor antenna If the repeater antennas have been tampered with, the repeater might not get
adequate signal to establish a connection to the AEM
Failing BTS If the feeding BTS for some reason goes down, the repeater will loose its network
connection, and hence fail to establish a connection to the Axell Element Manager.
4.3.1.2 AEM Database Synchronization
The Axell Element Manager stores all repeater parameters in a database. This database is populated during the
repeater integration into the AEM, when the AEM downloads all the repeater parameters. If the AEM operator
wants to monitor the configuration of the repeater, the parameters can be read from the database without having
to connect to the repeater.
In case of an alarm, the AEM updates the database with the status of the alarm source. In case the repeater failed
to deliver the alarm to the AEM, there will be a discrepancy between the repeater configuration and the
configuration in the database. Furthermore, if a technician at site makes changes to the RF-configuration of the
repeater, the configuration will differ from the AEM configuration.
For this reason, each heartbeat report contains all the relevant RF-parameters and status of all the alarm sources
in the repeater. This means that each heartbeat report will update the AEM with all status and RF parameters.
Note! Once the repeater is integrated to the Axell Element Manager, it is recommended that all reconfigurations
are made from the AEM.
Note! If a user logs in to the repeater making changes, as soon as the user logs out, an alarm will be transmitted
to the AEM informing the operator that a change has been made. When this alarm is received, the operator can
initiate repeater synchronization where all repeater parameters will be updated.
4.3.1.3 Time Synchronization
Each heartbeat message transmitted to the AEM contains a time stamp of the local time inside the repeater.
Upon reception in the AEM, the time stamp is compared to the Axell Element Manager time. If the difference
between the repeater and AEM time is too big, time synchronization is initiated by the AEM, adjusting the time
in the repeater. In this ways, we ensure that a repeater integrated to the Axell Element Manager always contains
the correct time information.
Note! If the time is adjusted by a user logged in to the repeater, once the user logs out, a heartbeat is sent to the
AEM to ensure that the time is correctly synchronized.

Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 56 (143)
4.3.2 Configuring the Heartbeat
The Heartbeat is configured to be transmitted on a regular interval. As soon as the report is successfully
delivered, the repeater will wait the configured interval before transmitting the report again. The interval can be
set from once per minute to once every 1440 minutes (24 hours). Setting the heartbeat interval to zero disables
transmission of the heartbeat reports.
If the heartbeat report was not successfully transmitted, it will be retransmitted again after a configurable
number of minutes. The Control Module will try a configurable number of times to transmit the report to the
Axell Element Manager / repeater OMC.
Default retransmit interval is one minute, and three retries will be made to transmit the report. In this example a
heartbeat is sent every 24 hours and the number of retransmits has been set to 2 with a one minute interval.

and Reports

Note! When monitoring the repeater using the Axell Element Manager, the heartbeat interval is decided by the
AEM operator as a part of the repeater to AEM integration procedure.
4.3.3 Heartbeat Format
The heartbeat report is transmitted as an ASCII text string, with a number of fields representing the RF-
configuration and status parameters, each field separated by a blank/white space.
Using the Axell Element Manager to control the repeater, the heartbeat report is delivered to the Transceiver for
further processing in the AEM system.

Note for GSM repeaters! To ensure signal quality in the coverage area, it is important that all channels and
link channels are separated by two guard channels. For example, if channel 34 is used, next allowed channel or
link channel is 37.
Note for GSM repeaters! It is recommended that the BCCH channel is configured as chain one (1) in the
repeater. It is though possible to configure the BCCH alarm monitoring to any channel.

4.4.2 Repeater Gain
Setting the gain in the repeater plays an important role in the
repeater configuration. Since the gain affects the coverage
area of the repeater, it is in many cases desired to have as high
gain as possible. However, since incorrect gain settings might
cause the repeater to oscillate it is important to configure the
gain carefully. In fibre optic systems where several repeaters
are connected to one OMU there is also an issue with noise in
the uplink. Please refer to the OMU Manual for more
information.
The gain is adjusted by changing the attenuation of the
repeater. The setting is done for the uplink and downlink
separately.

The attenuation can be changed in 1 dB steps. If the
attenuation for example is set to 15 dB, the repeater is
downgraded 15 dB from its maximum performance.
Maximum gain in the repeater can be read from the Product
Information menu (choose Configuration/Product).





4.4.3 Power Level
The repeaters have constant gain in both uplink and downlink paths. The gain is set by defining the attenuation
as described above.
The maximum output power level from the repeater can be set. If the input signal amplified by the set gain
exceeds the set output limit, an ALC (Automatic Level Control) loop is activated. This ALC ensures that the
amplifier does not add distortion to the radio signal.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 59 (143)
The maximum output power level is set in this RMC window. There
are a number of preset values to choose from. The maximum power
level can be set individually for uplink and downlink of each
channel. The power level can also be set to OFF, meaning that no
output power is transmitted out in the chain.

The power level in the downlink should be adjusted not to send
radio signals too far into neighboring cells, but yet be enough to
cover the service area. In the uplink a signal from a user close to the
repeater should not cause a transmit of too high power into the base
station antenna.
In channel selective repeaters, the uplink and downlink power levels
are normally set to the same value, while the values in the frequency
translating or band shifting repeaters depend on the link budgets for
the installation.
For frequency translating or band shifting repeaters the signal
strength of the link channel should not be set too high just enough
to reach between the donor and the remote site.
In fibre fed repeaters the uplink should be configured to obtain a
transparent feedback to the base station.
Note! Chains not used in the repeater must have power level set to
OFF.


4.4.4 Amplifier Saturation
If the output power reaches a certain limit in the repeater the ALC is activated, as described above. In the same
RMC window as above there is an Amplifier Saturation indicator and a saturation status alarm. The saturation
indicator detects problems with the system setup or environment and can also be used during repeater
installation and configuration.
The indicator has 2 levels for WCDMA repeaters:
Linear: green
Saturated: red
The indicator has 4 levels for GSM repeaters:
Low: below optimum settings
Ok: working in the optimum range
High: going into saturation
Critical: well into saturation
When the repeater is configured the gain in the downlink should be increased until the saturation indicator
reaches the optimum range. This ensures that the repeater has optimized gain settings. For GSM repeaters the
chain with the BCCH should be used.
Note! If possible check the activity level of the base station at the time for the repeater set up. The base station
output can vary a lot. If the repeater is set up during a low activity period it might be run into ALC when the
base station activity becomes higher.
Channel Selective Repeaters
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 60 (143)
4.4.5 Input / Output Levels
The input and output power levels to and from the repeater are
constantly monitored for each chain separately. The input level is
measured directly at the input of the LIMPA. The output power is
measured directly before the output of the LIMPA.
The measurable input power to the repeater ranges from -110 dBm to
about -25 dBm. The output power level varies depending on repeater
model. The dynamic range on the output power is roughly 25 dB,
meaning that a repeater with a maximum output power of 30dBm
can detect output power levels down to approximately 5 dBm. If the
output power level is lower than lowest detectable level, the RMC
reports a dash.
By using these values together with the gain settings in the repeater it
is possible to monitor the functionality of the amplifier chains. A too
low output power in a chain might for instance indicate some
problem with the LIMPA.


These measurements can also be useful during installation of the repeater, for example by monitoring the input
signal level constantly while aiming antennas towards the donor unit detecting the direction for the maximum
signal level. Monitoring the output level is helpful in determining how much the gain must be increased to reach
maximum output power.
Note! The uplink power levels will only be displayed when there is a user in the repeater coverage area
generating traffic. For GSM repeaters also, DTX (Discontinuous Transmission Mode) enabled networks will
cause the mobiles to generate traffic only when the subscriber is actually talking. This will cause the uplink
meters to fluctuate a lot. The same applies to the downlink channels not configured as BCCH, since RF is only
transmitted in the traffic channels if a call is handled by this TRX.
4.4.6 Return Loss (VSWR)
The server FDMs contains circuitry to measure the reflected power levels back from the connected server
antenna cables. A too high level on the reflected power generates an alarm.
Typical reasons for a high reflected power level can be an antenna connector being improperly tightened, a
broken cable or a broken antenna.
Frequency Translating and Band Shifting ER (external combining) repeaters contain two server FDMs, one
for each server antenna, and hence two reflected power levels are measured. All other repeater types contain
only one server FDM.
The level for when to generate an alarm is configurable as number of dBs difference between forward and
reflected power levels. Default level is 10 dB, and normally this value should not be changed.
The return loss is displayed in the same window as the power levels.

Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 61 (143)
4.4.7 BCCH Configuration for GSM Repeaters
The BCCH channel can be configured on any chain. The most common though, is to configure the BCCH on
chain 1. This is also how the repeater is configured when it is delivered.
The repeater monitors the BCCH output power in the downlink to ensure that the power level stays above a
configurable threshold. If the level drops below the threshold, for example if an obstacle is raised between the
feeding base station and the repeater, an alarm is generated. The threshold level is set in the Alarm
Configuration window.
In each chain the BCCH can be configured in three different ways:
Required: the output power must be present on this chain
Either: the output power must be above the threshold on this or
any of the other chains configured
Skip: the output power is not measured on this chain
By default, the repeater is configured with Required in chain 1,
and Skip in the other chains. This means that if the BCCH drops
in chain 1, an alarm is generated.

Examples of how to use the BCCH configuration:
Two 1-channel sectors are to be transmitted through a
frequency translating ER repeater, where each sector is
transmitted out via separate antennas. Both channels need to
have a constant output power above the threshold. In this case
both chains should be configured as Required.
The base station supports BCCH fall-over, where the BCCH
will automatically switch over to TRX 2 in case the default
BCCH TRX fails. Configuring the repeater as Either will
cause the repeater to require output power on chain 1 or 2. In
this case the BTS will generate an alarm, why we do not need
an alarm in the repeater OMC as well.

4.5 Hardware Identification
A repeater contains a number of different modules. Some of these are active devices meaning that they contain a
micro controller used for monitoring module parameters. Some are passive devices, for example the external
alarm interface.
The Control Module communicates with the active devices using a master/slave configuration, where the
Control Module is the master and the active devices are slaves. Each active device uses its serial number as an
address. A slave only replies to requests with the correct address information.
During manufacturing the repeater is configured with all the serial numbers of all the devices in the system. For
passive devices, the article number of the device is added. Once the system is configured, the Control Module
polls all the active devices for article numbers and production information as well as software versions and
statistics of the active devices.
Via the RMC the full repeater inventory can be read, including statistics of the active devices.
When a login to a repeater is made using the Repeater Maintenance Console, the RMC detects the repeater type
and adjusts the user interface correspondingly. The same RMC can be used for all repeater types.
Via the RMC basic information about the repeater configuration can be monitored.

4.5.1 Replacing/Reconfiguring Hardware Modules
If a module needs to be changed it is important to update the repeater with the new hardware information. For
active devices this is crucial to ensure communication between the new module and the Control Module. For all
devices it gives an up-to date inventory of the entire network.
The hardware is reconfigured by logging in to the repeater via the RMC and switching to Terminal Mode. If the
change concerns an active or passive device the command syntax varies slightly.
Format for replacing Active devices:
HARDWARE REPLACE <Ol d Ser i al > <New Ser i al >
where <Old Serial>is the serial number of replaced module, and <New Serial>is the serial number of the new
module.
Example:
HARDWARE REPLACE 4711 56AR
replaces serial number of active device with serial number 4711 with a new hardware having serial number
56AR.
Format on replacing Passive devices:
HARDWARE REPLACE <Ol d Ser i al > <New Ser i al > <New Ar t i cl e Number >
where <Old Serial>is the serial number of replaced module, and <New Serial>is the serial number of the new
module and <New Article Number>is article number of new hardware.
Example:
HARDWARE REPLACE 540R 56UU J 691030A
Each change of hardware is kept in a log. In order to read out the log, use command
HARDWARE LOG
which displays all hardware changes that has been made to the system, including local time point for
replacement.

Note! In order to read out current hardware configuration, refer to attributes HDC, HDI, ADC and DDI.
4.6 Tag and ID
When the repeater is integrated into the Axell Element Manager the repeater is assigned a repeater ID, which is
a unique identifier in the repeater network. This ID is used by the AEM to keep track of the repeaters in the
AEM database.
The repeater Tag can be used to give the repeater a more logical name, such as the site or installation place. If
Tag is set during site installation, this can easily be read by the AEM during AEM integration, giving the AEM
operator a clear identification of the site.
The repeater tag can be locked so that the tag can not be accidentally changed from the AEM.
Refer to section 5.8.2 Set Repeater Name (TAG) for information about how to set the repeater Tag.

and Communication




Note! A password for the repeaters communication with the AEM can be set in the box above but it is
recommended that it is done from the AEM, and NOT from here.
4.7.2 Local Access
Local access is achieved via a RS232 interface to the LMT port in the repeater. This port is accessible inside the
repeater. The USB connector is not activated in this version of the repeaters and cannot be used.
4.7.3 Remote Access
Remote access is achieved via modem or via Ethernet. Different types of modems are supported, for example
GSM, GSM-R, HSPA/UMTS, TETRA, GPRS and PSTN.
The modem is either placed on the Control Module or as a separate unit. Ethernet connection is available on the
Control Module.
4.8 Integration into AEM
When the repeater has been installed at site and the remote communication has been enabled, either through the
repeaters own modem or via an OMU, the repeater can be integrated to the Axell Element Manager. This is
done by the operator of the AEM. After entering the telephone number to the repeater, the AEM dials up the
repeater, downloads all the repeater parameters and statuses into a database. When all parameters have been
downloaded, the AEM configures the repeater with the telephone number where alarms and reports should be
sent, and optionally with a secondary telephone number where the repeater can dial in case connection to
primary number fails.
When heartbeat reports and alarms are sent from the repeater to the AEM also the latest information about the
status and RF-configuration is included. This means that the AEM operator always has information about the
current status in the AEM database (and do not need to call the repeater to find this out).
Note! Once the repeater is integrated into the AEM, all changes to the repeater should preferably be done from
the Axell Element Manager in order to ensure that the database always contains correct information.

The donor antenna faces the base station. Free line of sight is desirable but not necessary if the signal strength at
the exact location of the antenna is strong enough.
The server antenna may be mounted above or below the donor antenna depending on the site conditions.
Important is the vertical separation needed to achieve adequate isolation between antennas. The isolation has to
be at least 10-25 dB higher than the repeater gain (the higher number for EDGE). This may well be in the region
of 20 meters or more. Other alternatives are metal screening with wire mesh or horizontal antenna separation.
A high gain antenna will help in minimizing the overall path loss to achieve the desired output power. Donor
antenna gains are typically 20 to 25 dBi, while server antennas are often 10 to 15 dBi. The server antenna
normally has a horizontal beam of 60 to 120. Donor antennas should have a horizontal and vertical beam
width of less than 30 to correctly select the donor base station (instead of other nearby base stations).
This table can be used as a guideline for antenna separation. Antennas are assumed to be highly directional and
pointed in the opposite direction.

It is important to remember that a whole sector must be used when installing a this type of repeater. The base
station sector using F1 and F2 is transmitted to the repeater. The base station sector used must have the same
number of carriers as the repeater. At the remote site an input signal greater than -75dBm is desired. An input of
-65 dBm is necessary to deliver an output of +40dBm.

The isolation between antennas at the remote site seldom needs to be more than 75dB. This value can be
achieved with a limited antenna displacement, often as low as 3 meters. The relatively modest isolation
requirement allows the use of omni-directional antennas for coverage. By using another band for the link the
isolation requirement between antennas at the remote site becomes very low. It might in some applications even
be possible to use the same antenna for both the link and the service area.
A high gain antenna will help in minimizing the overall path loss to achieve the desired output power. Donor
antenna gains are typically 20 to 25 dBi, while server antennas are often 10 to 15 dBi. The coverage antenna
normally has a horizontal beam of 60 to 120. Donor antennas should have a horizontal and vertical beam
width of less than 30 to correctly select the donor base station (instead of other nearby base stations).

5.1.4 Link Budget
It is important to make a link budget before the installation is completed. This budget will give the necessary
input for tuning the system and to ensure good system performance.
This is and example based on a frequency translating repeater.

5.1.4.1 Downlink Path
The Downlink path is quite straightforward to set up in a repeater installation, and also gives a good indication
of the actual path loss between the donor and the remote unit. The gain in the units is simply adjusted until the
desired output levels are achieved. This procedure is simplified by the built in monitoring functions in the Axell
Wireless repeaters.
Remember though, that the repeater is not a piece of measurement equipment, and has a limited accuracy when
presenting input and output levels. (+/-3dB and +/-2dB respectively)
Here two different link path losses will be analyzed, representing two extremes regarding the distance between
the donor and remote unit: 6.5 and 26 kilometers. Free space path loss is assumed in both cases. (Feeder losses
are varied to get further extreme values).

Total Link loss (6.5km):
-0.5 +15 -108 +15 - 0.5 =- 79dB
| | | | |
| | | | --------- Feeder loss between Remote unit and Link antenna
| | | ---------------- Link antenna at Remote site 15dBi
| | ----------------------Free space path loss at 925MHz / 6.5km
| ---------------------------Link antenna at Donor site 15dBi
---------------------------------Feeder loss between Donor unit and link antenna

Total Link loss (26km):
-2.5 +15 -120 +15 - 2.5 = - 95dB
| | | | |
| | | | -------- Feeder loss between Remote unit and Link antenna
| | | ----------------Link antenna at Remote site 15dBi
| | ---------------------Free space path loss at 925MHz / 26km

---------------------------------Feeder loss between Donor unit and link antenna

Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 72 (143)

The downlink path based on the above link loss calculation for 6.5 and 26 kilometers.


Note that the shorter link distance gives the opportunity to reduce the donor downlink gain and increase the
remote downlink gain. This will reduce the output power in the link antenna and minimize interference caused
by the link, and thereby simplify frequency planning.
The longer link distance is probably close to the maximum useful distance, since timing advance will only allow
a repeater cell radius of 5-6 kilometers in this case. (The delay through the repeater chain is typically 2 x 6 us,
equal to an increase of timing advance by 6-7 units)
In the case of a base station with extended range capability longer link paths are possible, but then link antennas
with more gain should be considered. 20dBi antennas have been used in some installations, reducing total link
loss by 10dB compared to the above numbers. Keeping everything else constant, this would allow for another
23km of link distance.
5.1.4.2 Uplink Path
The settings of the Repeater Uplink path requires much more careful planning than the Downlink. Very
different results can be obtained depending on the Repeater Uplink gain setting, and there will always be a trade
off situation between the Repeater cell sensitivity and base station cell sensitivity. Low Repeater Uplink gain
will result in poorer Repeater cell sensitivity but only a small base station cell sensitivity degradation. The
opposite is also true; high Repeater Uplink gain will result in good repeater cell sensitivity but a larger reduction
in base station cell sensitivity.
The calculations to determine the sensitivity in the Repeater cell and the base station cell is based on the
formula for determining the total noise figure for a cascade of amplifiers and attenuators:
NF1
G1
NF2
G2
NF3
G3
NF4
G4


NFtot =NF1 +(NF2-1)/G1 +(NF3-1)/(G1*G2) +(NF4-1)/(G1*G2*G3 ) + (units, not dBs)
This equation is basically used to find the total noise figure at two points in the cascade made up by the repeater
installation. Note that if there is a device in the chain that is affected by thermal noise from an antenna, the
equation has to be modified for that device. E.g. if device 3 is connected via an aerial connection, its

contribution to the total gain is
NF3/(G1*G2).
1. The first point is the entire chain including the base station receiver noise figure. This value is then directly
used to calculate the repeater cell sensitivity.
2. The second point is the same cascade excluding the base station receiver and coupler noise figure. This
noise figure is, in combination with the gain to this point, converted to an equivalent noise floor. This is
then added to the base station receiver equivalent noise floor. The sum of the noise is then converted back
to a noise figure used to calculate the base station cell sensitivity.
First the equivalent base station noise figure corresponding to the base station sensitivity must be calculated
from the following equation:
Eq. BTS noise figure =-106 - ( -174 +54 +8 ) dB =6 dB
C/N for 0.4% BER (ETSI ETR 103)
10 x log(BW) BW=251kHz (ETSI ETR 103)

This value is used in all calculations below.
Example 1
Rule-of-thumb setup with 26 km link
As a starting point (rule of thumb) the uplink gain can be set equal to the downlink gain settings.
For the -95dB link this will give the situation shown in the figure below:

| ---------------------------- 10 x log (BW) BW =251kHz

The noise floor from the repeater chain at the base station receiver input is:
-174 +54 +5.5 - 1 dBm =-115.5 dBm

| | | ---------------- Total gain in Repeater chain
| | --------------------- Repeater chain total noise figure without base station &

| ---------------------------- 10 x log (BW) BW =251 kHz

This must now be added to the base station receiver noise floor, which is:

-174 +54 +6 dBm =-114.0 dBm
| | |
| | --------------------- base station receiver noise figure
| ---------------------------- 10 x log (BW) BW =251 kHz
---------------------------------- Thermal noise floor

And when they are added the total noise floor at the base station receiver input becomes:
10 * LOG [10^(-115.5/10) +10^(-114.0/10) ] =-111.7 dBm

This is a 2.3dB higher base station receiver noise floor compared to the starting value (114-111.7=2.3), which
means that the base station receiver sensitivity has degraded from -106 dBm to -103.7dBm without diversity.
Summary of example 1:
The calculations in example 1 used a very simple setup technique for the uplink path. The gain in the Uplink
was simply set equal to the Downlink gain in both the Donor and Remote unit. This resulted in:
Sensitivity in Repeater cell =-103.1 dBm
Sensitivity in base station cell =-103.7 dBm without diversity, a reduction of 2.3dB.
Note that the base station Diversity receiver will maintain its original sensitivity of -106dBm since no Repeater
noise it emitted into its input. However, the diversity gain will be lower than normal because of the Repeater
noise emitted into the base station main receiver input.
Also note that all traffic through the Repeater will only enter the base station main receiver input, NOT the
diversity receiver input. This may cause a Diversity alarm on some types of base stations. This is normal and
should be a simple matter of configuring the alarms in the base station.
Example 2
26 km link with high repeater cell sensitivity
To get good Repeater cell sensitivity, the Uplink gain must be increased compared to example 1. If the gain
from the Repeater server cell antenna to the base station receiver antenna input is positive (larger than 0 dB), the
Repeater can in fact be considered to be Tower Mounted Amplifier (TMA). The major difference is of course
that the antenna is located 26km from the base station in this case. The sensitivity of the original base station
cell will be degraded more than in example 1 because the noise floor will be higher at the base station receiver
input.
The example 2 setup looks like the figure below:

Doing the calculations yields:

It is obvious that the increased Uplink gain has improved Repeater cell sensitivity on the cost of the base station
cell sensitivity.

This example shows a relatively small reduction in the base station cell sensitivity on the cost of a rather poor
Repeater cell sensitivity. In this case however, it is possible to increase the Uplink gain in the Remote unit and
reduce it equally much in the Donor unit. This will improve the overall noise figure as dictated by the NFtot
equation on page 3. This is examined in the next example.
Example 4
6.5 km link with high base station sensitivity and optimized repeater sensitivity
The Donor Uplink gain in example 3 was 22dB. Since the minimum configurable gain in the Donor unit is

Although the improvement compared to Example 3 is only a few tens of a dB, the cost of the improvement is
just a few moments of calculations. With more total Uplink gain the improvement is larger. See the next
example.

Compared to example 4, the repeater sensitivity has been improved by 4dB but the base station sensitivity has
been reduced by 2dB.
Summary
It has been shown by several calculation examples that some care is needed when the Uplink gain is configured
in a CSFT installation if optimum sensitivity is desired. However, rule of thumb setup will only cause a small
base station sensitivity degradation with a typical base station, but Repeater cell sensitivity will not be optimum.
Note that feeder looses between Repeater server antenna and Remote unit are not included in the calculations.
5.2 Engineering Considerations
This section is foremost relevant for GSM repeaters.
5.2.1.1 Minimum Channel Separation
Axell Wireless recommends a minimum spacing of two GSM channels between the carriers in the amplifier
chains. These two "guard channels" create a centre-to-centre separation of 600 kHz.
Decreasing the spacing may lead to degraded performance.
5.2.1.2 Minimum Link Channel Spacing
When setting up a frequency translating repeater Axell Wireless recommends a spacing of two GSM channels
between the link frequency and the radio frequency. These two "guard channels" create a centre-to-centre
separation of 600 kHz.
Decreasing the spacing may lead to degraded performance.
5.2.1.3 Gain Adjustment
Use only the required power to cover blind spots or coverage areas, to minimize border overlap with the donor
base station
Optimize repeater gain levels to achieve system path balance and an acceptable noise level contribution
Channel Selective Repeaters
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 77 (143)
Reflections, phase fluctuations and other variables can all affect the quality of radio traffic and on site
adjustments and measurement will always have to be carried out to ensure reliable radio communication.
5.2.1.4 Overlapping Coverage
Ideally, the repeater system will be engineered with minimal overlapping coverage between the donor base
station and the repeater. However, the mobile unit will occasionally receive signals from both the donor and the
repeater at similar levels. This situation is comparable to a mobile receiving multiple signals at varying times
due to multi-path propagation.
The GSM standards require that systems must accommodate up to 16s of multi-path delay for two received
signals that are less than or equal to 10dB apart. The CSR922 repeater contributes a maximum signal delay of
6s.
5.2.1.5 How to use the Link in Frequency Translating Repeaters
Calls cannot be connected via the link frequencies for the following reasons.
The mobile station (MS) searches for the Broadcast Control Channel (BCCH) beamed from the Base
Transceiver Station (base station) Even though the MS may find the frequency translated link signal BCCH
transmission; it will not be possible to initiate a call through it.
When a call is initiated, the base station switches from BCCH to the Stand Alone Control Channel which (apart
from other information) instructs the MS which frequency (ARFCN) to use during the call. This makes the MS
switch back to the non-frequency translated ARFCN (base station frequency), where it will find no base station
signal and the call is aborted. The same is true when logging into the network.
Note! The BCCH, SDCCH, and TCH channels are logical GSM channels, not to be confused with Absolute
Radio Frequency Channels (ARFCN). Only the latter are associated with specific frequencies.
5.2.1.6 Frequency Hopping and Repeaters
Frequency hopping usually means that the input baseband traffic at frame level is switched between fixed
frequency RF-channels. The Axell Wireless channel selective repeater with appropriate number of channels can
function with this kind of hopping.
However, frequency hopping can also mean that the frequency of each transceiver is changed in phase with
transmission frames. This is usually called synthesized hopping. Being more complex than the baseband type, it
has not been widely implemented in GSM networks.
When GSM is evolving into EDGE, traffic will be IP-packet based. IP-traffic studies show that frequency
hopping does not improve the capacity or performance of the channel. A tendency is that frequency hopping
will not be frequently used in EDGE networks.

5.3 Prepare the Site
5.3.1 Site Selection
Site selection is one of the most critical decisions affecting the overall performance of the system.
Repeater locations
These are examples of common repeater locations.
roofs of buildings adjacent to the affected area with the antennas mounted to the penthouse or building
sides
top of a hill that is obstructing the donor sites coverage, with the antennas mounted on poles at ground
level
a water tower with antennas mounted at the top
an existing utility pole with equipment and antennas mounted below any existing power lines
a newly installed pole or tower
Important Issues
There are a few important considerations to be made while choosing the best possible site for a repeater:
Ensure access to commercial power (sun-panels is an option)
Ensure adequate signal strength. For example: to obtain the maximum output, e.g. +37 dBm, from an on-
frequency repeater an input signal of approximately -53 dBm is needed into the repeater4. To obtain the
maximum output from a Frequency Translating Repeaters remote site, e.g. +40 dBm, an input signal of -
65 dBm is needed.
A conventional channel selective repeater must be located where the base station signal strength is strong
enough to be recognized by the system. It should also be located no more than 15 km from the donor site
and 5 km from the furthest area to be served.
Ensure line of sight (LOS) between the base station antenna and the repeaters donor antenna for channel
selective repeaters, and between the link antennas for frequency translating repeaters. If the signal strength
is adequate, line of sight may in some cases not be necessary.
5.3.2 Antennas
Select antennas for the system with the proper directivity and high front-to-back ratio in order to optimize
repeater coverage and system noise performance. Ensure adequate antenna isolation for the chosen repeater
type.
Link antennas typically have a narrow horizontal and vertical beam width (less than 35 degrees) and high gain
(15 25 dBi). The narrow horizontal beam width will keep interference from the repeater link channel to a
minimum. Parabolic disc antennas which offer beam widths of <10 degrees are ideal for both donor and remote
link antennas.
Server antennas are determined by the type of area to be covered. For a conventional repeater it can be any
standard GSM base station antenna that has a good front to back ratio (>=25 dB) and between 30 and 120
degrees horizontal beam width, depending on the desired coverage area. For a frequency translating antenna it
may be an omni antenna.
Use compass or planning tool to get the exact direction and tilt of the antenna

Antenna Types
For server antenna purposes panel antennas are suitable for On-Frequency repeaters and omni antennas or
directional antennas for Frequency Translating Repeaters.
Link antennas and pick-up antennas are often narrow beam panel antennas with high gain for On-Frequency
repeaters and narrow beam antennas with gain depending on distance for Frequency Translating Repeaters
Antenna Direction
Direct repeater coverage away from the donor cell to minimize RF signal coverage overlap. If the base station
has different sectors (in a frequency translating installation) always choose to use the carriers used in the sector
facing away from the remote site in order to avoid inter symbol interference (ISI).
5.3.3 Antenna Isolation Test
The antenna isolation is the difference between the output signal on the server antenna and the signal leaking
into the donor or link antenna.
At a conventional installation with an on-frequency repeater the antenna isolation needs to be large enough not
to cause any signal distortion. For EDGE-signals (8-PSK) as much as 25 dB of margin (antenna isolation
repeater gain) may be required to maintain signal quality. At the remote site of a frequency translating repeater
installation the antenna isolation needs to be approximately 75dB.

The antenna isolation can be measured through the use of a function in the RMC. The measurement can be
made at the time the repeater is comissioned as well as regularly when the repeater is up and running. The
measurement can be made when the repeater is operational.
Note! The measurement only takes a few seconds, but if the repeater is operational at the time of the
measurement there is a risk of loosing calls during the time the parameters are changed.
5.3.4 Single Measurement
Select RF/Status

Prepare for the
measurement

Ensure that the BCCH is in chain 1 or change the setup so that the measurement is
done on the chain that contains the BCCH. Use a silent channel in the other
chain. This channel will be used for detecting the leaking signal and needs to be
free of traffic.

The antenna isolation can also be measured by use of a signal generator and a spectrum analyzer. Use a signal
generator to generate a carrier wave signal on the server antenna, and a spectrum analyzer to measure the signal
leaking over to the donor antenna.
Note! The repeater does not need to be connected.

Make necessary
measurements
Make necessary measurements to ensure a correct installation.
When the cable has been installed, the quality of the optical path should be checked
for optical path loss and magnitude and location of any reflections. This can be done
with an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR). The total return loss should be
>45 dB.
Optical reflections can degrade the noise and linearity of a fibre optic link. In
particular, reflections that reach the laser can be a problem. Keep all discrete
reflections to >60 dB. The SC/APC connectors are polished to a return loss >60 dB.

Attach the fibre
to the fibre optic
converter inside
the repeater.
Note! Clean the fibre connector before it is connected, see instruction below.
Cleaning Optical Connectors
Optical reflections from a discontinuity such as a poor connector interface appear on
an RF spectrum analyzer trace as stable variations in the noise floor amplitude that are
periodic with RF frequency. If the reflection is bad enough, it could impact the system
performance. By far, the most common cause for a large discrete reflection is a dirty
optical connector. A bit of dust or oil from a finger can easily interfere with, or block
this light. Fortunately, it is very easy to clean the connector.
Be sure to use the correct procedure for the given connector. When disconnected, cap
the FC/APC connector to keep it clean and prevent scratching the tip of the ferrule.

Alternative 1
Swipe the tip of the ferule 2-3 times with a cotton
swab soaked in alcohol. Let it air dry.

External Alarm
Four external alarm sources can be connected to the repeater. These alarms operate on
a voltage between 12 and 24VDC. The presence or absence of this voltage will trigger
the alarm depending on how the alarm polarity has been configured.
The alarms can be configured active-low or active-high, so that the alarm is given
either in the presence or absence of applied power. Active high means that an applied
voltage of between 12 and 24 V will cause the external alarm indicator to turn red.
Active low means that when there is no voltage the alarm indicator will turn red. The
repeater can supply +15 VDC to an external alarm source through pin 9 and 10. The
maximum allowed load is 100mA.
The repeater contains a relay (pin 11 and 12) that can be connected to an external
device to indicate an alarm. The relay can be configured to trigger on any number of
internal and external alarms. The maximum current that can be supplied is 100mA.

Initiate fibre loss
compensation

This is done from the OMU by sending a pilot tone to the repeater and calculating the
loss in the fibre link. This loss is compensated for automatically. The system will
behave as if there is no loss at all in the fibre link.
This procedure is described in more detail in the OMU manual section 4.9 Initiate
Fibre Loss Compensation.

If the value is approximately 3dB the port is open or there is something wrong with
the antenna installation. If the antenna is correctly installed the value should be
approximately 20dB.

For GSM repeaters the saturation level
can be: Low (green), Ok (green), High
(yellow) or Critical (red).
For WCDMA repeaters the saturation
level can be: Linear (green) and
Saturated (red)



The optimal level is Ok/Linear. To reach this value lower the attenuation step by step
until the saturation reaches High/Saturated. Then raise the attenuation one step. The
saturation should now be back on Ok/Linear.

Note! Since the repeater has an ALC function (Automatic Level Control), the repeater
will not transmit more power even if you continue to lower the attenuation.
Note! For WCDMA repeaters: The repeater gain should be configured so that there is
a margin from pilot tone to full traffic of 7-10 dB. For example, if a maximum output
power of 30dBm is desired at full traffic, the pilot tone alone should deliver an output
level of 20-23dBm. This setting will allow for the power variations. If possible check
the activity level of the base station at the time for the repeater set up. The base station
output can vary a lot up to 13dB. If the repeater is set up during a low activity
period it might be run into ALC when the base station activity becomes higher.
Note! For Fibre Fed Repeaters: Please also consult section 6 Installation in the
HUB/OMU Product Description and Users Manual.

If the BCCH/Pilot tone is in Chain 1 this chain will show a stable power level whereas
downlink and uplink power levels in the other chains depend on the amount of traffic.
This will make these chains appear unstable.

Set the Attenuation 2dB higher than in the downlink.
Since the base station is more sensitive than a mobile unit there may be less signal
gain from the mobile unit in to the base station (UL) than in the opposite direction.
The uplink attenuation can be adjusted more accurately later on, once the drive test
signal measurements have been completed.

Configure the uplink
in all chains


In the uplink direction the attenuation needs to be set based on a measurement of a
known signal which is transmitted through the repeater and the OMU as well as the
fibre. There are two ways of performing this measurement.
Alternative 1
Use a signal generator to insert a signal of approximately -70dBm into the repeaters
server antenna port. Measure the signal level on the base station or on the coupler and
adjust the attenuation so that the total gain in the uplink is close to 0dB. (At 0dB gain
the signal level at the coupler should be -40dBm and on the base station -70dBm in
this example.)

Alternative 2
Use a signal generator to insert a signal of approximately -70dBm into the repeaters

measurement is not as accurate as alternative 1.
Note! If several repeaters are connected to the same OMU the total gain in each chain
should be slightly lower than 0dB not to insert too much noise into the base station.

5.9 Set Up Remote Communication
Note! If the repeater is fibre fed and is set up as a slave- this section is not relevant since the remote
communication is handled by the node master in most cases an OMU.
The repeaters can be configured with a wireless modem, a PSTN modem or Ethernet for the remote
communication.
5.9.1 Communication via Modem
The Control Module is responsible for enabling the power to the modem, unlocking the SIM-card, using the
configured PIN-code and making sure the modem is logged in to the network correctly. Depending on network
configuration and modem usage, the modem might require different modem initialization strings to work
properly. This modem initialization string is set and verified during repeater setup.
5.9.1.1 Modem Initialization
After a power failure, or upon user request, the Control Module performs a full initialization of the modem.
This consists of three steps:
If the SIM-card in the modem has the PIN code enabled, the Control Module unlocks the PIN code. In case
wrong PIN-code is configured, the Control Module will not try to unlock the SIM again until the PIN-code
is changed. This avoids the SIM card being locked by a Control Module repeatedly trying to unlock the
SIM with the wrong PIN code.
Once the SIM is unlocked, the Control Module waits for the SIM to log in to the network. Depending on
signal quality and network configuration this might take a while. The Control Module will wait a
configurable number of seconds (default 50 seconds) for the modem to login to the network. In case no
network is found, a modem power cycle will be initiated.
When the modem is successfully logged in to the network, the Control Module configures the modem with
the modem initialization string as configured when setting up the remote configuration. The modem
initialization string is a network dependent string. The default string is suitable for most networks, but
some networks might require some tweaking of this string.
5.9.1.2 Monitoring Modem Connection
The Control Module constantly monitors the status of the modem connection to ensure that it is working
properly, and that the modem is logged in to the network.
In case the modem is not registered to the network, or the Control Module cannot properly communicate with
the modem, a power cycling of the modem is initiated, after which the modem will reinitialized.
5.9.1.3 Scheduled Modem Power Cycling
In addition to polling the modem to ensure the repeater online status, the Control Module can be configured to
perform an automatic power cycling on a scheduled time of the day. Power cycling the modem ensures the
latest network configuration for the modem, such as the HLR Update Interval etc.
Note! By default, the scheduled modem power cycling is disabled.
5.9.2 Communication via Wireless Modem
There are two different ways of communication for a wireless (GSM) modem:
Using data call / modem connection.
Note! This requires the SIM-card in the modem to be configured with data service.
Using SMS to configure the repeater with simple text messages
Note! SMS functionality is not implemented in this SW release.
The Axell Element Manager always uses data call communication with the repeater, why all repeaters being
controlled by the AEM must have data service enabled on the SIM card.
Configuring the repeater to send alarms and reports via SMS it is still possible to establish data calls to the
repeater, as long as the SIM card is data service enabled.

5.9.2.3 AEM Addresses
The Control Module can be configured with two different addresses (telephone numbers) to which alarms and
reports are delivered. In case the repeater cannot deliver alarms and reports to the primary address, the next call
will be made to the secondary address.
A fallback functionality is available, which means that the Control Module falls back to the primary address
after a configurable number of minutes. If this interval is set to 0, the fallback will not be performed. A user can
always force the Control Module to fall back to the primary address.
Note! When the repeater is integrated to the Axell Element Manager system, these addresses are set by the
AEM, why they need not be configured during site installation.
5.9.2.4 Modem Verification
When the remote configuration has been set up the communication can be verified using the modem feature of
the RMC and dialling the data number. The remote communication is verified as soon as a successful remote
login to the repeater has been performed.
However, as a first step, it is recommended to verify that the modem is initialized correctly. After configuring
the modem using the RMC, make sure to initiate a power cycling of the modem. This is done from the RMC
menu.

Verify the remote communication either by having someone attempting to integrate the repeater from the Axell
Element Manager, or by dialling the repeater using the Repeater Maintenance Console.
Note! It is very important to dial the data number of the SIM. In case the voice number is dialled, the call is
answered, but almost immediately the call will be hung up.
5.9.2.5 SIM-card Using Single Numbering Scheme
If the network is configured using Single Numbering Scheme (SNS), some special considerations apply.
The repeaters are by default configured so that networks using SNS always will have calls routed to the data
service in the modem. When dialling from within the network to a repeater having an SNS-configured SIM will
operate normally, since the call originator informs the system that the bearer is of type DATA. However, when
dialling from outside the network trying to connect to the repeater can be difficult. Depending on the interface
to the roaming network or to the PSTN network if an analogue modem is used, the bearer type can default to
voice. If the bearer is set to voice, the data service cannot be converted to DATA, and a call setup cannot be
completed.
Note! This is not a repeater related problem; the solution is to verify how the external network interfaces
handles the VOICE vs. DATA bearer type.

5.9.5 Troubleshooting Remote Communication
Please also refer to the document Common Command and Attributes for guidance.
Since many networks have their own personality, performing first time configuration of the remote
communication sometimes requires tweaking of the modem parameters.
This section describes some trouble shooting techniques if configuring the repeater for remote access fails.
The illustration below is a simplified schematic of the remote communication between a GSM modem in a
repeater and an analogue modem. The analogue modem in the computer communicates with the Interworking
Function Unit (IFU), which is the GSM network analogue network interface. The call is routed via the switch
centre over the air interface to the data call number in the SIM-card of the GSM module.
The Control Module is responsible for establishing connections with the Axell Element Manager, and to answer
incoming calls to the repeater.
As described in previous sections, the Control Module only accepts one login at a time, either via Local
Maintenance port (LMT) or modem connection. Hence, when verifying the remote access of the repeater, it is
important to log out from the repeater locally before trying to access the repeater remotely.

5.9.5.3 Manually Answering Incoming Calls
It is possible to manually answer incoming calls without involving the repeater software at all, to verify that the
remote access and the network itself works as intended. In order to verify the remote communication, make sure
to have someone stand by to dial up the repeater with a terminal emulation program, for example
HyperTerminal.
Go in to Direct Modem Access as described earlier. When in direct access mode, ask the person standing by to
dial up the repeater.
As soon as a call is received, the text
RI NG
will repeatedly be displayed on the screen.
Type
ATA <ent er >
This will inform the modem to answer (ATtention Answer).
When the connection is established, a connect message will be displayed including the connection speed.
Sometimes the information comes together with some miscellaneous information, such as error correction
protocols etc.
Note! Make sure the remote peer dials the Data Call number
If the voice number is dialled instead of the data number, or if the modem contains an illegal modem
initialization string, the message
OK
or
NO CARRI ER
will be displayed almost immediately.
Try to change the modem initialization string. The modem initialization string mainly used to configure the
remote communication is AT+CBST.
Successful modem initialization strings used by Axell Wireless includes (most common first):
AT+CBST=71, 0, 1; \ Q3
AT+CBST=7, 0, 1; \ Q3
AT+CBST=0, 0, 1; \ Q3

Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 116 (143)
AT+CBST=0, 0, 1; \ Q3
AT+CBST=7, 0, 3; \ Q3
Once the modem initialization string is entered, try again to dial up the repeater. For details on the different
modem initialization strings, please refer to the modems user guide.
If the setup is successful, the connect message will be brought up;
CONNECT 9600
This means that an online connection is established to the remote peer. From now on, all characters typed on the
keyboard will end up on the remote peers screen. Similarly, all characters typed by the remote peer will be
displayed on the screen.
In the example, the incoming call was
successfully answered, and the remote
user entered the text message.


In order to come back to modem command mode, press +++(three pluses) rapidly (within one second).
Receiving
OK
means that the modem is back in command mode.
Type
ATH <ent er >
This terminates the connection to the remote peer. The message
NO CARRI ER
will be displayed.
5.9.5.4 Common Problems
Problem 1
When enabling the remote access for the repeater, the modem fails to log in to the network.
Solution
Signal strength from the donor site is too low. The signal strength can be read directly from the modem. Go in
to Direct Modem Access as described earlier. Use the command AT+CSQ (documented below) to read out the
signal strength.
In order to have good signal quality, Axell Wireless recommends that the signal strength should be better than -
95 dBm. If signal strength is lower, try to adjust the antennas to get a better signal strength from the donor.
Channel Selective Repeaters
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 117 (143)

Documentation of +CSQ command from a modems manual.

In the example the reply to AT+CSQ is
0,7 meaning 7*2 dB above -113 dBm;
the modem detects a signal level of -99
dBm.


Problem 2a
Repeater is configured properly, and answers the incoming call, but when trying to dial the repeater using an
analogue mode, no modem handshaking is heard from the dialling modem.
Problem 2b
When dialling the repeater, the repeater answers the incoming call, but no connection is established, and after a
while the repeater disconnects the call.
Solution
The most common cause is that the number called is the voice number of the SIM, not the data number.
Therefore, make sure to dial the data number.
Channel Selective Repeaters
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND USER'S MANUAL


Axell Wireless Ltd A1019300, rev B 118 (143)
If data call is used, the problem probably is an illegal modem initialization string.
In order to change the modem string, go to the repeater command prompt. Try changing the modem
initialization string and log out to let the controller reinitialize the modem.
If problem remains, try a few different modem initialization strings. Axell Wireless has been successful with the
following modem initialization strings:
AT+CBST=71, 0, 1; \ Q3
AT+CBST=7, 0, 1; \ Q3
AT+CBST=0, 0, 1; \ Q3
AT+CBST=0, 0, 1; \ Q3
AT+CBST=7, 0, 3; \ Q3
Please refer to the modem manual for detailed description of the modem initialization strings.
Problem 3
It is possible to call the repeater from another GSM mobile, but not from an analogue modem.
Solution
This problem is most likely related to the modem configuration and/or the configuration of the IFU unit. Try to
decrease the communications speed and make sure that the modem error correction is supported by the IFU.
Verify the IFU configuration to see if there are any known problems with the modem connections.
Problem 4
When dialling the repeater, or when the repeater is dialling the Element Manager, the connection is terminated
before the handshaking is completed.
Solution
When a repeater is answering an incoming modem call, or calling up the OMC to deliver an alarm or a report,
the repeater will wait a configurable number of seconds for the call to be established. If no communication is
established within this time, the call will be hung up. If this interval is set too low, the handshaking is
terminated too fast. In the RMC, verify the Modem Connect Time to see that it is set to at least 30 seconds.
5.10 Integration into the AEM
When the repeater has been installed at site and the remote communication has been enabled, the repeater can
be integrated to the Axell Element Manager. This is done by the operator of the AEM. After entering the
telephone number to the repeater, the AEM dials up the repeater, downloads all the repeater parameters and
statuses into a database. When all parameters have been downloaded, the AEM configures the repeater with the
telephone number where alarms and reports should be sent, and optionally with a secondary telephone number
where the repeater can dial in case connection to primary number fails.
When heartbeat reports and alarms are sent from the repeater to the AEM also the latest information about the
status and RF-configuration is included. This means that the AEM operator always has information about the
current status in the AEM database (and do not need to call the repeater to find this out).
Note! Once the repeater is integrated to the AEM, all changes to the repeater should preferably be done from
the Axell Element Manager in order to ensure that the database always contains correct information.

6.1 General
The system normally operates without any operator intervention or maintenance. If in the unlikely event of any
unit failure, the faulty repeater should be replaced. A failed unit can be removed and replaced with a spare while
the rest of the system (other repeaters) is still operating. However, the power supply of the failed repeater
should be isolated from the power before anything is replaced.
In the event of a malfunction in the system, the status of the antenna systems as well as the continuity of the
cabling should be checked before replacing any modules within the repeater.
6.2 Preventive Maintenance
The BSF 424 repeater does not require preventative maintenance.
6.3 Trouble Shooting
In the event of a failure Axell Wirelesss support service should be contacted for advice on a possible module
replacement or other action to be taken.
6.4 Component Replacement
