1 Product Position and Features

1.1 Product Position


The DBS3900 is used for radio access in the LTE system. The DBS3900 mainly
performs Radio Resource Management (RRM) functions such as air interface
management, access control, mobile control, and User Equipment (UE) resource
allocation.
The DBS3900 has two types of basic modules: enterprise baseband unit (eBBU) and
enterprise remote radio unit (eRRU), Figure 1-1 shows the position of the DBS3900 in
the whole system.

Product Description

1.2 Product Features


Supporting Multiple Frequency Bands
DBS3900 supports frequency bands such as 1.8 GHz, 1.4 GHz, 400 MHz, 800 MHz,
and 2.3GHz, which meets the requirements for multiple frequency bands.

Distributed Architecture
In the distributed architecture, the BBU and RRU of an DBS3900 are separately
deployed and connected through fibers. This minimizes feeder loss and improves
eNodeB coverage. The distributed BBU + RRU architecture allows RRUs to be
mounted on walls or to poles, enabling zero footprint site deployment. As a result,
network deployment costs can be reduced by more than 30% and network deployment
efficiency is significantly improved.

Excellent Performance
Maximum bit rates per cell are up to100 Mbit/s downlink and 50 Mbit/s uplink over 20
MHz wide channels. The excellent performance can help customers preempt the
commanding elevations of the professional mobile broadband industry and get rapid
service expansion.

Flexible Networking
The DBS3900 supports varied frequency bands, enabling customers to provide
services over both readily and newly available frequency bands. Customers can utilize
more than two frequency bands on one wireless network based on the availability of
frequency resources in different areas.

Energy-saving Base Station


RRUs are the most energy-consuming units of an eNodeB. Thanks to the cutting-edge
hardware design of power amplifiers and the use of innovative power amplifier and
consumption management technologies, the RRUs consume 40% less power than
similar products from other vendors.

Anti-network Paralysis
The DBS3900 support Fallback mode. When the Core Network Device is down, the
eBBU starts the CNPU which works as a Core Network; it will ensure that all the
services under the eNodeB work normal.

Product Description

2 Product Structure

2.1 Overview
The DBS3900 features a distributed architecture and is comprised of two types of
basic modules: eBBU (enterprise BaseBand control Unit) and eRRU (enterprise
Remote Radio Unit). The eBBU and eRRU transmit CPRI signals via fiber optic
cables that connect them through common public radio interface (CPRI) ports. This
kind of architecture satisfies the requirements of setting up enterprise wireless
communication networks.

2.2 Basic Module


2.2.1 eBBU
The eBBU, a baseband unit, performs the following functions:
Provides ports for connection to the core network and processes related
transmission protocols.
Provides CPRI ports for communication with eRRUs and processes uplink and
downlink baseband signals.
Manages the entire base station by means of operation and maintenance (OM)
and signaling message processing.
Provides an OM channel towards the local maintenance terminal (LMT) or
eOMC.
Provides clock ports for clock synchronization, alarm monitoring ports for
environment monitoring, and a Universal Serial Bus (USB) port for
commissioning the use of a USB storage device.

1. eBBU exterior
The eBBU has a compact case structure measuring 19 inches wide and 2U high.
Figure 2-1 shows the eBBU exterior.

Product Description

Figure 2-1 eBBU exterior

2. Boards of the eBBU


The eBBU is configured with the following mandatory boards and modules:
LTE main processing and transmission unit (LMPT): Manages the entire
E-UTRAN NodeB (eNodeB) in terms of OM, processes signaling, and provides
clock signals for the eBBU.
LTE baseband processing unit (LBBP): Processes baseband signals and CPRI
signals.
CNPU (Core network prosessing unit): Provides fallback mode capability.
Fan unit (FAN): Controls the rotation of fans, checks the temperature of the fan
module, and performs heat dissipation for the BBU.
Universal power and environment interface unit (UPEU): Converts -48V DC
power into +12V DC, and provides ports for transmission of two RS485 signal
inputs and eight Boolean signal inputs.

Note:
Fallback mode means that when the Core Network Device is down, the eBBU starts
the CNPU which works as a Core Network, it will ensure that all the services under
the eNodeB work normal. CNPU is an optional board.

2.2.2 eRRU
One or more eRRU constitute the radio frequency (RF) part of a distributed base
station. eRRUs can be installed on a pole, wall, or stand. They can also be installed
close to antennas to shorten the feeder length, reduce feeder loss, and improve system
coverage. eRRUs serve to modulate and demodulate baseband signals and RF signals,
process data, amplify power and detect standing waves.
To meet the needs of different application scenarios, the solution provides a variety of
eRRU, including:
eRRU3232: 1.8GHz (1785MHz to 1805MHz), 4 PATH, is mainly applied in
outdoor macro base stations;
eRRU3253: 1.4GHz (1447MHz to 1467MHz), 8 PATH, is mainly applied in
government networks;
eRRU3255: 400M (380MHz to 400MHz), 2 PATH, is mainly applied in outdoor
scenario, also can be applied in indoor scenario;
eRRU3251: 1.8GHz (1785MHz to 1805MHz), 2 PATH, is mainly applied in
indoor coverage and linear coverage situations, eg. railway, subway, mine;
eRRU3222: 800MHz (Download 791 MHz to 821 MHz, Upload 832 MHz to
862MHz), 2 PATH, is mainly applied in 800MHz outdoor macro base stations;
eRRU3252: 2.3G2300MHz to 2400MHz, 4path.

Customers can choose to apply different eRRUs according to the frequency band
available to them.

Product Description

5 Operation and Maintenance

5.1 Overview
The DBS3900 supports the O&M system that is based on the man-machine language
(MML) and the graphic user interface (GUI). The O&M system enables a
hardware-independent O&M mechanism and provides powerful O&M functions for
users to meet various O&M requirements.

5.2 Characteristics
Robust Hardware Management, Rapid Fault Location and Rectification
DBS3900 hardware management provides prewarning mechanism and resetting
mechanism to make sure sufficient time are left for troubleshooting before service
interruptions. Recovery can be implemented by resetting to avoid severe accidents in
case faults cannot be cleared in time. When a hardware fault occurs, the DBS3900
alerts the user by generating alarms and flashing indicators and provides suggestions to
guide the user in troubleshooting. After the fault is recovered, the alarm is cleared.

Advanced Software Management and Smooth Upgrade


DBS3900 software management provides upgrade and rollback mechanism, which
allows a software version upgrade and rollback to another version. The upgrade
process includes downloading software files to the OMU using the Security File
Transfer Protocol (FTPS) server, loading the software from the OMU to the flash of
each board, and activating the software in the board flash. This process does not affect
other services and adopts the protection mechanism to raise the success rate of
switching. The effect on available resources is reduced to the lowest level.
Key data is backed up in the process of upgrading. Therefore, a rollback can be
generated immediately when upgrade fails, and the system recovers to a normal state
in a short time. After the upgrade is complete, version consistency check is performed
to verify the version correctness.

Rich Tracing and Detection Functions


DBS3900 provides hierarchical tracing and detection functions, including user tracing,
interface tracing, message tracing, fault detection on the physical layer, fault detection
on the data link layer, and other fault detection functions, facilitating fault locating.
The tracing information can be saved into files and be checked using the tracing
retrospection tool.

Notes:
combination between eRRUmeans that multiple eRRUs merge into one cell which
apply only 5M/10M/20M system bandwidth, and only supports 2T2R of eRRU.
combination in eRRUmeans that several paths of a eRRU merge into one cell,
namely the antennas of a eRRU split into multiple 2-path and then merge into the same
cell.
