1.3.1

1900 MHz Low Loss Combiner (LLC) Description


P/N LLC-1900-IN (UMTS Application)
CCIs Model Number LLC-1900-IN Narrow Guard Band 1900 MHz Low Loss Combiner allows combining
of UMTS (3G) and GSM (2G) onto a single feeder without the insertion loss normally associated with
passive combiners. This new model reduces the guard band requirement to only 500 kHz, restoring lost
spectrum associated with previous units. A precisely matched UMTS filter (Band Pass) allows the single
3.84 MHz UMTS carrier to be positioned anywhere in the band and provides high rejection of unwanted
spurious signals and noise. Transmit paths are fully isolated to prevent intermodulation distortion. Multiple
units can be utilized for deployment of additional UMTS channels. When tuning is not being performed, no
power is required, effectively becoming a pure passive low-loss filter combiner. Tuning is performed via
TCP/IP or Ethernet connection requiring only a computer with a web browser. All software is resident
internally. No extra software or controller is required. Note that the 3G (5 MHz) port (Bandpass) allows
Tx Only signals to pass, but the 2G port (Bandstop) is fully duplexed (Tx/Rx). Please note that tuning
is available in 100 kHz increments. The unit is housed in a single 19 rack mounted assembly (1u in
height), and can be used with CCI Booster equipment for additional feeder reduction. See the Block
Diagram in Figure 1.1 for signal path identification.
P/N LLC-1900-IN (CDMA Application)
CCIs Narrow Guard Band 1900 MHz Low Loss Combiner combines multiple CDMA signals (for example
EV-DO and 3G-1X) (or even 3G CDMA and 2G CDMA signals) onto a single feeder without the insertion
loss normally associated with passive combiners nor the cost or DC power consumption of active combiner
solutions. A precisely matched tunable filter (Band Pass) allows up to three 1.25 MHz CDMA Carriers to
be positioned anywhere in the band. Each Tx port may be used for either CDMA 2G and/or CDMA 3G-1x,
EV-DO technologies. The filter provides high rejection of unwanted spurious signals and noise. Transmit
paths are fully isolated to prevent intermodulation distortion. Multiple units can be utilized for deployment
of additional 3G channels. When tuning is not being performed, no power is required, effectively becoming
a pure passive low-loss filter combiner. Tuning is performed via TCP/IP or Ethernet connection requiring
only a computer with a web browser. All software is resident internally. No extra software or controller is
required. Note that the 3G (5 MHz) port (Bandpass) allows Tx Only signals to pass, but the 2G port
(Bandstop) is fully duplexed (Tx/Rx). The unit shown is housed in a single 19 rack mounted assembly (1U
in height), and can be used with CCI Cell Extender equipment for additional feeder reduction. See the
Bloc Diagram in Figure 1.1 for signal path identification.
This manual contains detailed information on how to perform tuning of an LLC.

Application
CCIs Narrow Guard Band 1900 MHz Low Loss Combiner allows combining of UMTS and GSM onto a
single feeder line without the insertion loss normally associated with passive combiners. Multiple LLCs
can be utilized for deployment of additional UMTS channels. Similarly in CDMA applications, the 1900
MHz LLC allows for addition of cdma2000 or 3G (technologies including 1X, 1xEV-DO and 1xEV-DV) BTS
equipment to existing cdmaOne or 2G CDMA.
Note, other applications for the 1900 MHz LLC include:

1.3.3

1)

Combining of multiple UMTS signals if the proper bandwidth is available, and providing that the
channels passed to the Bandstop filter only contain Tx (no Rx) only signals.

2)

Combining of multiple CDMA channels, providing that the channels passed to the Bandstop filter
contain Tx (no Rx) only signals.

3)

Combining of CDMA and GSM signals.

Troubleshooting (Component Level)


7.1

Introduction
This section will cover the troubleshooting of CCI LLCs which have LED Indicators, as well as RF
measurements that can be performed.

7.2

Troubleshooting
The troubleshooting covered herein contains details of the LED Status Indicators and/or the alarm contact pin
combinations. In the event of a suspected failure please see section 7.3 Return for Service Procedures.

7.2.1

Low Loss Combiner (LLC) Troubleshooting


The following paragraphs describe the LED state, trigger conditions and corrective actions for failures of
the LLC. The LLC Tuning Manual can also be found on CCIs website at www.cciproducts.com.

7.2.1.1

POWER ON Not Illuminated


If the POWER ON (green) LED is illuminated, this indicates that the unit is powered (only required
when tuning is being performed) and is operational. If the green LED is off, check the condition of
DC input cable, the associated circuit breaker, and that the DC input cable is properly connected to
the DC Input connector on the LLC.

7.2.1.2

Activity Not Illuminated


The Activity LED (yellow) will only be illuminated during tuning of the LLC. If the LED is not
illuminated, but the POWER ON LED is illuminated during tuning, check to insure the condition of
the Ethernet Crossover cable and that it is indeed connected to the RJ45 (Control Ethernet) port
on the LLC, or check the condition of the RS232 cable and that it is connected to the RS232
(Control RS232) port on the LLC.

7.2.1.3

ETHERNET ENABLED Not Illuminated


The ETHRNET ENABLED Indicator (Green LED) will only be illuminated while the Ethernet cable
is connected to the LLC and the LLC is powered. If the green LED is off but the Ethernet cable is
connected while the LLC is powered, then check the other end of the Ethernet cable for a proper
connection to an Ethernet adapter.

7.2.1.4

Tune Error Illuminated


If the Tune Error (Red) LED is illuminated, this indicates that the LLC has failed to tune to a given
frequency due to an internal problem. Attempt to retune the LLC. If multiple attempts fail, return the
unit to CCI using the RMA process described in section 7.3 and Appendix C.

7.2.1.5

Test
Troubleshooting of the Low Loss Combiner is performed by testing the LLC with a Network
Analyzer. This testing validates the UMTS Pass frequencies, the GSM Reject frequencies, the
Return Loss of the UMTS Pass Band, and the Return Loss of the GSM Pass Band. The values
for these tests can be found in Table A-1 herein for the Low Loss Combiner.

CCIs Return Policy

RETURN POLICY

How do I return a product to CCI?


Before returning material to Communication Components Inc., you must obtain an RMA number. This is
done by completing the attached RMA form. Before you fill out the form you will need the following:
y
y
y
y
y

Serial number of unit in question. Serial number is found on silver label next to barcode.
Model number of unit in question. Model number also found on silver label.
Name and phone number of a contact at your company.
Detailed description of reason for return.
Date code number. Date code is found either on silver label as D/C, or on separate label. Date
code is required to determine warranty status. The standard warranty period extends to 1 year
after the date shown on date code label.

What about Out-of- Warranty repairs?


CCI does not charge for repair of In-Warranty products. However, a repair charge will be issued for out-ofwarranty items, or if the product returned is abused, mishandled, modified, or altered in any way.
If the product is returned after expiry of the warranty period of 1year, we will e-mail you a repair quote listing
repair charges before we start the repair. Failure to accept this quote within the validity period of 90 days
will be considered a quote rejection, and the defective products will be scrapped or returned unrepaired at
the customers request, and return shipping charges will apply. A product that is tested after expiry of the
warranty period, and is diagnosed as No Problem Found will be subject to an evaluation fee.
What about repair turn- around time?
Repair turn-around time is less than seven business days.
CCI has a Ship after Receive policy. We must receive the products before we can ship your replacements. If
any item is critical to your operation we suggest that spare or backup item/systems be purchased please
speak with our sales department.
How do I ship the package?
