Construction View
The modules are housed in a rack with the dimension 850 x 600 x 450 mm (H x W x D).
The rack can be equipped with up to 3 TRX. The necessary space for installation is
shown in Fig. 2.13.
The rack contains the following modules:
Core Controller (CC):
The Core Controller consists of 3 mandatory boards (CPU board, ATM board and LIU
board). For an optical Iub interface, a CC equipped with an additional STM-1 board must
be used.
Channel Coding Card (CHC):
The main function of the CHC is channel coding and decoding.
Duplexer Amplifier Multi Coupler (DUAMCOF):
A duplexer combines the transmit and receive paths to the common antenna connector.
In addition the duplex filter provides receive and transmit band filtering.
Two types of DUAMCOF are available:
DUAMCORETF with RX diversity and TX diversity
DUAMCORTF with RX diversity and TX diversity
IUB Connector (IUBCON):
Connector unit for the E1/J1 ports of the Iub interface and the external synchronization
clock input of the NodeB. Provides interfaces for connection of external monitoring
equipment without interruption.

Installation
Node B

Overvoltage Protection and Tracer (OVPT):


Protects the E1 and J1/T1 ports of the Iub interface and the external synchronization
clock input of the NodeB from overvoltage and provides interfaces for connection of external monitoring equipment without interruption.
The following modules are installed in the NB-420 rack only:
Repeater Card (REP):
The REP card provides a multiplexing function for base band signals. The card sorts the
downlink signals from the CHC cards (TX data) according to antennas and sends them
to the TRX cards. The card also sends the signals from the TRX cards (RX data) to the
CHC cards in uplink direction.
Transceiver Card (TRX):
The TRX card features a transceiver base band block (TRX BB) and a radio frequency
block (RF). The radio frequency block is composed of the transmitter block (TX) and the
receiver block (RX). The RX block and the TX block have a diversity configuration. The
required number of TRX cards (max.3) depends on configuration and sectorisation.
Linear Power Amplifier(LPA):
The LPA is the power amplifier of the RF downlink signal received from the TRX.
These cards and modules are used in the NB-860 and the updated NB-420:
Digital Radio Interface Card (DRIC):
The card combines the functionality of the REP card (see above) and the spreading
functionality of several TRX cards. The DRIC provides 6 digital radio interfaces for up to
6 CAT modules. Optionally, a second DRIC can be installed for redundancy reasons.
Combined Amplifier and Transceiver Module (CAT):
On the downlink path it receives the digital baseband signal from the DRIC card. The
CAT performs channel filtering, up converts this signal to the required transmitting
frequency. On the uplink path, the CAT module receives RF signals from the DUAMCO,
down converts the signals and transmits the resulting data stream to the DRIC card.

NOTE
All empty slots in a partially equipped shelf must be closed with adequate cover parts,
so that the air flow inside the rack will not be affected. Cover parts are available with the
dimensions 295 x 20 mm, 395 x 40 mm and 395 x 60 mm (H x W).
Tower Mounted Amplifier( TMAF):
The TMAF is an (optional) RF unit (external to the NodeB rack) which provides the
means to feed the overall NodeB downlink signal to one TX/RX antenna and to amplify,
with low noise figure, the overall NodeB uplink signal coming from the same TX/RX antenna.
The numbers of installed modules (excepted CC) are subject to modification, it depends
on the number of TRXs and the cell configuration on site.
NB-420/NB-860 is fed by an external -48 V DC source.
The required link equipment for the fixed link to the fixed public telephone network (can
be microwave or NTPM) must find place in a separate shelf on site. Type and layout of
the shelf depends on customer requirements.
For further information about the hardware architecture refer to the
Technical Description UTRAN NB-420.

The NB-420 can be upgraded to provide the full NB-860 functionality.
In this case, the REP cards, the TRX cards and the LPA modules have to be removed
first. This is possible after the disconnection of the system cabling at the front of the
modules.
After that the DRIC cards and the CAT modules have to be fitted in the matching slots
of the A-and B-shelf.
At least the modified system cabling has to be re-connected and all unused slots must
be closed with cover parts.
The rack layout of the NB-860 and the updated NB-420 is shown in Fig. 2.4.

NOTE
The NodeB is called NB-420 if the rack is equipped with LPA, TRX and REP modules.
The configuration can be upgrated with DRIC and CAT modules. In this case a full
NB-860 functionality is provided. Because a re-labelling is not foreseen, the NodeB will
called in future also NB-420.
The NodeB racks delivered from the factory with DRIC / CAT modules will be called
NB-860 and a label with this number is fixed at the rack front.

External Cabling Activities


Overview
This chapter gives information required for installing the external cables between the
NB-420/NB-860 and equipment outside the rack.
The rack can not function without the following cable connections:
DC mains terminal block 2 pole ->-48 V DC power supply equipment
ground bolt -> ground bar
Iub interface (E1, T1/J1 and /or STM-1) -> link equipment (can be NTPM or microwave)
microwave indoor units - microwave outdoor units (if microwave equipment is used
for transmission)
transmit / receive antenna connectors - antenna system
ground strip of antenna cable shields - ground bar
optional:
alarm collection terminal - external alarm sensors
All interfaces excepted the antenna connectors are located at the EMI panel below the
top cover.
The top cover needs to be removed for cable installation. For removal of the top cover
proceed as described in section 2.5.4 of this manual.

NOTE
In view of a later shifting of the NodeB because rearrangements of NodeB racks or
maintenance tasks at the rear side of the NodeB are necessary it can be advantageous
to provide an extra length of external cables.
The additional length of the cables (L+, L-, Ground, Iub and external alarms) could be
between 0,5 m and 1.0 m and should be mounted behind the rack as a loop or on the
cable trays depending on local site requirements.
The alternative solution is the disconnection of all cables at the connection terminals.
Some additional hints for the installation of external cabling:
The first cable that has to be installed is the ground cable between the main ground
stud on top of the rack and the nearest ground bar on site (see section 2.6.2 "Ground
and Power Supply Connections -48 V DC").
After that all other cables like DC mains, RF cabling or alarm wires can be installed.
The screen of the RF jumpers has to be grounded before entering the rack via the
cable feeding module, see Fig. 2.50.
If cables are fed through the coaxial cable access, the cable screen has to be
grounded like all other coaxial cables.
The figure below shows the location of the external interfaces.

Ground and Power Supply Connections -48 V DC


The NB-420/NB-860 rack has to be connected to the site specific ground system before
starting the connection of DC mains cable.
An external ground wire (minimum cross section 16 mm2(AWG 6), copper conductor)
has to be connected on the left or right side ground stud of the rack, which must be
attached to the ground bar on site.
Connect the NB-420/NB-860 rack and ground system as follows:
1. Use the nearest ground bar on site.
2. Ascertain the distances between the connection points of the ground system and the
ground bolt of the rack.
3. Cut the cables to the required length.
4. Remove the cable insulation at the end that to be connect to the ground bolt (length
approx. 10 mm (0,4) and fix a cable lug M8.
5. Connect the prepared cable end to the ground bolt.

The figure above shows the recommended cabling for the power supply and ground
connections. The recommended cable types as shown in the figure above guarantees
the proper function of the NB-420/NB-860, equipped with up to 3 TRX.
The NB-420/NB-860 will be powered by a -48V DC source. The 2-pole terminal block of
the MSU, located on the top of rack, is the connection point for the DC mains wires.
An easily accessible disconnection device is incorporated into the DC mains
supply wiring. To isolate the DC mains supply, a 63 A circuit breaker (medium response
time) must be installed in the DC distribution box for the interruption of the -48 V conductor.
To connect the NB-420/NB-860 with the DC mains supply equipment point, proceed in
the following steps:
1. Refer to the site documentation for the information about type and location of the DC
distribution.
2. Measure the actual distance between terminal block of the MSU and DC distribution.

Iub-Interface - Link Equipment


The Iub interfaces, located on the EMI panel, provide the interface for communication
links to the neighboring NodeB stations or the controlling RNC.
The Iub interfaces can be terminated with Overvoltage Protections (OVPT) which protect the boards inside the NB-420/NB-860 against overvoltage (residual voltage < 1 kV).
Two types of OVPT exist: OVPTE1CF for 75 and OVPTE1J1SF for 120 /100 cables.
If this function is not needed, the Iub interfaces will be terminated with an Iub connector
IUBCON. The IUBCONSFV1 is the termination for 100 /120 lines and the
IUBCONCFV1 for 75 lines.

NOTE
If the connection point for the Iub line (network termination) is outside the building where
the NodeB is installed, an OVPT module has to be installed always.
Depending on the different cable impedances it is recommended to:
use screened cable containing 8/10 shielded twisted pairs 0,25 mm2 (AWG 24) for
100/120 PCM lines, e.g. S-09YS(ST)CY 8x2x0.6/1.2.
use coaxial cables for 75 wiring, e.g. 2YCCY 0.4/2.5.

NOTE
Use only twisted pair or coaxial copper cables with braided shielding!
If cables should be used without shielded twisted pairs, do not route up-link and downlink PCM lines in one common cable.
The cable shielding must be connected to the relevant ground pins as close as possible
(in order to avoid EMC/RF interfering effects).

2.6.3.1

Iub-Interface for 120/100 Ohm Cable Impedance


Before starting the connection of the cables at the Iub-interface of the OVPTE1J1SF or

Preparation of Antenna Jumper Cables


Short jumper cables with a max. diameter 1/2 have to be used for connections between
the antenna feeder cables and the front connectors of the DUAMCOs, because the thick
feeder cables are not able to enter the rack. With regard to overvoltage protection it is
recommended to ground the outer conductor of the antenna feeder cables where they
are connected with the jumper cables outside the NB-420/NB-860.
The jumper cables must be fabricated of 1/2 highly flexible coaxial cable on-site, if no
pre-fabricated cables should be used. Fabricate the jumper cables in steps as described
in the assembly instructions of the connector manufacturer. An example of assembly is
shown in the following figures.

Installation of the Tower Mounted Amplifiers


WARNING
The electromagnetic field (EMF) generated by a NodeB could have detrimental effects
on human health in areas very close to the NodeB antenna. Excessive EMF exposure
by the installation/service personnel must be avoided. For installation and maintenance
activities it is important to know the EMF compliance boundaries in antenna areas.
For detailed information please refer to the document: EN 50385 - Compliance Boundaries.
The Tower Mounted Amplifiers ( DTMAF) are the RF units (external to the NodeB rack)
which provide the means to feed the overall NodeB downlink signal to one TX/RX antenna and to amplify, with low noise figure, the overall NodeB uplink signal coming from
the same TX/RX antenna.
The DTMARET can additional support the remote electrical tilt (RET) of the antennas in
relation with the DUAMCORETF inside the NodeB and the adjusting devices (RET modules) at the antennas. The RET feature allows the adjusting of the horizontal antenna tilt
with a remote control via the O&M.

NOTE
Install the components of the RET-System according to the installation manual of the
manufacturer.

The DTMAF provides two 7/16 female connectors at the bottom for the connection with
the NodeB (lettered NodeB 0 and NodeB 1) and on the top both 7/16 connectors for connecting the jumper cables to the antennas (lettered ANT 0 and ANT 1).
In addition to the RF coaxial connectors, the DTMARETF provides a 8-pole circular connector for connecting of the RET module, the tilt adjuster of the antenna.

NOTE
It is recommended to mount the DTMAFs and the DTMARETFs at pole or wall in a vertical position, so that the draining outlet of the units is pointing downwards.
In certain cases, the mounting in a horizontal position (e.g., on cable runways) is possible, it depends on the environmental conditions.
Each DTMAF / DTMARETF shall be grounded to the pole, therefore a grounding wire
has to be prepared for each device.
The mounting plate provides a screw with a locking washer attached to it for connection
of the grounding wire (see bottom view of the devices).

The grounding wire cable lug must have the right size for the M8 ground screw. The
cross section of the ground wire must be not less than 16 mm2 (AWG 6).
The other end of the grounding wire should be safely connected to a well grounded point
on the pole.
Care must be taken that the draining pipe (see bottom view of the devices) is pointing
downwards. The draining pipe is factory mounted. If it, for any reason, would be
loosened, it should be tightened again with a sufficient torque wrench, however not
exceeding 2.2 Nm (1.6 ft Ib).
The draining pipe must never be obstructed or covered with paint which would impede
the venting and draining of the housing.

2.6.10.1

Pole Mounting with Hose Clips


The hose clips surrounds the pole and are fitted through the corresponding openings of
the mounting plate (see rear view of the devices). This is the situation just before tightening the hose clips.
For the mounting, the following steps can be generally recommended. First connect the
DTMAF / DTMARETF to the antenna feeder cable. Take into consideration that the antenna feeder often is very stiff and rather heavy. The position of its coaxial connectors
therefore often determines the position of the DTMAF / DTMARETF on the pole.
1. Place the DTMAF / DTMARETF in its final mounting position at the pole.
2. Secure the unit with a tensioning belt.
3. Open the hose clips by pressing the button at the end of the clip lock and then
smoothly pull out the perforated metal band.
4. Move the metal band of the hose clip gently into the openings of the mounting plate.
5. Close the hose clip loosely around the pole.
6. Tighten the hose clip screws carefully, but do not over-tighten (see Fig. 2.63).
7. Remove the tensioning belt.
8. Connect the DTMAF / DTMARETF first to the antenna feeder cable (NodeB) and
then to the antenna jumper cable (ANT). The torque must be 25 - 30 Nm (18.5 22.1 ft Ib)
9. Connect the grounding wire with the DTMAF / DTMARETF ground screw. Tighten
the connection to a torque of 5 Nm (3.7 ft Ib).
10. The protection of the connectors with self-vulcanizing tape is recommended.

NOTE
Pay attention to the thermal dimensional changes of the antenna feeder cables.
If the antenna is equipped with a RET module, install the DC power / data cable between
the module and the 8 pole circular connector of the DTMARETF.
The required cable will be delivered with the RET module together.
The following figure will illustrate the pole mounting procedure of the tower mounted amplifiers.

Wall Mounting of DTMAF and DTMARETF


The DTMAF / DTMARETF may be mounted on a wall by means of suitable screws and
dowels (not supplied with the device).
The corresponding holes in the mounting plate have a diameter of 9 mm. The proper
way of mounting the device on a wall varies from case to case. The best method can
only be decided by the installer. Please note, however, that the wall itself probably does
not provide adequate grounding, it may be insulated.

CAUTION
It is absolutely necessary to connect the DTMAF / DTMARET with a grounding wire with
a cross section not less than 16 mm2 (AWG 6) nearest grounding point.

CAUTION
Pay attention to the thermal dimensional changes of the antenna feeder cables.

Preparation of the Top Cover


After the connection of external cables is finished, prepare the top cover for setup on the
top of the rack. The top cover features pre-fractured parts which can be removed in order to route cables through to the infrastructure equipment on site (see figure below).
The required number of pieces can be removed in easy manner by break out at the perforation. After that refinish the paint coat at all cracks with the paint retouch kit (Siemens
Serial No. A500-C101-B261).

Setup of the System Cabling


The system cabling consists of connections that are installed on the front of the rack.
The cabling configurations depends on the different equipping variants and the cell configuration of the site.
The system cabling is already installed in the factory. This section provides information
for setup additional system cables for extension of RF modules or if the cell configuration
should be changed.
The following table provides an overview of the types and functionality of the prefabricated cables.
The system cables will be shipped in a box to avoid twisting and damage.
Before starting the connection procedure, refer to the site documentation and determine
the types and number of the cables.

CAUTION
Fix the system cables at SMA connectors with a torque wrench set to 1.00 Nm
(0.75 ft Ib).
N-type connectors have to be fixed to a torque of approx. 1.00 Nm (0.75 ft Ib).
Terminate all unused connectors of the antenna combiners with 50 load resistors!

CAUTION
The minimum single bending radius of the flexible cables is 20 mm (3/4). The minimum
repeated bending radius is 40 mm (1.6).
The extra length of the cables have to be stored in lower area of the rack.
Make sure that LEDs and Ethernet Connector on the TRX module are not covered with
the cables!
The list of variant numbers (content of the site specific documentation) is needed for the
correct setup of the cabling between the modules.

Optical Interface Cabling


Optical Interface Cabling with LSH-Adapters
If the optical interfaces of the Core Controller should be used as the IUB interface, 2 prefabricated cables have to be routed to the patch-panel on the top of the rack.
Two threaded holes are provided for fixing of the panel (MK:FOCSHF) with torx screws.
The patch-panel provides 8 cut-outs for the fixing of the LSH-Adapters, which are used
to change from the E-2000 connector type of the patch cable to the customer specific
type. The patch-cables are equipped with a F-3000 connector (body blue) to the optical
interface of the Core Controller and 2 E-2000 connectors (body blue / lever blue = RX
path, body blue / lever red = TX path) for fixing at the adapters of the patch panel.
