7.1.4.1 Ethernet connector


The Ethernet connector is used to connect an Indoor Device and the FlexiPacket Multi-
Radio.
The Ethernet connector supports the Power + Ethernet (P+E): its function is of carrying
both power and data over the same cable.
The data interface is a 10/100/1000Base-T (GbE), while power interface is based on
enhanced Power+Ethernet.
The Ethernet connector is shown in Figure 31 and described in Table 15. It is a shielded
Amphenol multipolar connector with 8 golden power pins. Each pin can accept at least
22 to 24 AWG wire diameter.

Ethernet cable
The cable is a double shielded four twisted pairs Cat 5e cable. A 24-valued AWG (min.)
is necessary to minimize cable power loss. Cable materials are designed to meet
outdoor conditions. The cable shield shall be connected to the FlexiPacket MultiRadio
grounding point.

7.1.4.2 PS connector
This connector is used to power supply the FlexiPacket MultiRadio with a dedicated
power supply (-48 Vdc + 20%) cable. In this case the interconnection with an Indoor
Device is implemented with 2 cables.
The PS connector is shown in Figure 32 and described in Table 16. It is a shielded
Amphenol multipolar connector with 2 golden power pins. Each pin can accept at least
13 AWG wire diameter.

PS cable
The cable is a shielded, two wire cable. A 13-valued AWG (min.) is necessary to
minimize cable power loss; with this value 200m connection is guaranteed over the tem-
perature range -40 to +60C. Cable materials shall be designed to meet outdoor con-
ditions. The cable shield must be connected to the FlexiPacket MultiRadio grounding
point.

7.1.4.3 AGC connector (RSSI)


The RSSI interface allows measuring the received RF signal level with a standard volt-
meter through a female BNC 50 ohm, IP65 waterproof connector.

The table below reports the RSSI parameters.

Parameters Value
Output voltage range and -0.5V @ Prx = -90 dBm
Received Power range -4.0V @ Prx = -20dBm
Output impedance 100 ohm / 1nF
Nominal sensitivity 0.5V/10dB
Accuracy 3 dB

7.1.4.4 ODU-ODU connector


This connector must be used to connect the ODU-ODU cable to the second FlexiPacket
MultiRadio in the configurations with two FlexiPacket MultiRadios. The connector is a
proprietary multicoaxial connector.

 Alarms are reported according to the following rule:


Normal state (no alarm): relevant pair of pins (i.e. pin1-pin2 for short circuit
on ODU1 power supply) are open and both floating respect to ground
Alarm active: relevant pair of pins (i.e. pin1-pin2 for short circuit on ODU1
power supply) are shortened each other by internal MOS device; both pins
are floating respect to ground
 All alarm lines support both positive and negative external bias
