Supporting Frame for Remote Mounting

 A new supporting frame version replaces the present


one used for remote mounting of ODUs in (1+1) Hot
Stand By (Balanced and Unbalanced)

 This Supporting Frame is derived from the new


supporting frame for integrated mounting.
mounting
It has the same structure with, in addition, the proper
material for pole or wall mounting. In this case the
waveguide is still necessary.

 Available frequency bands: 15, 18, 23, 26, 38 GHz

 As it concerns 7,8,13 GHz the present design


of supporting frame remains unchanged.

SRA L Catalogue update
Supporting Frame for Integrated Mounting
 As an alternative to present supporting frame
for remote mounting, this new version is suitable
for integrated mounting of ODUs in (1+1)
Hot Stand By configuration (Balanced and Unbalanced)

 No need for waveguide

 The result of this type of mounting is a compact structure,


structure
that allows to hide the ODUs behind the antenna,
with a minimum environmental impact.

Continuity with SRA L Product Line

 Same management system (NetViewer)

 TMN compatibility. Same DCN already installed can be re-used. No need for external
devices to connect SRAL XD TMN I/F to SRA L TMN I/F.

 Same antennas and supporting frames of SRA L (identichal mechanical interfaces):


common inventory

 Same IDU/ODU cable and connection kits:


common inventory

 16 TCM system gain in line with SRA L:


easy migration from 8xE1 SRA L to 16xE1 HD (same RF band occupancy) without need to
increase antenna diameter

 ODU ND is on-air compatible with SRA L 16xE1 (4CPM modulation)


asymmetrical links are possible, but only with SRA L IDU Universal

SRAL XD Page 23
SRAL XD
Benefits compared to SRA L
 Reduced need for indoor room

 Reduced power consumption (15 W lower in 1+1 config.)

 High Density option

 High Performance option (i. e. high System Gain)

 Improved RF tunability

 Increased segmentation of product family

 Reduced DCN cost


• Integrated LAN interface towards NMS (no need for DualQ-Adapter)
• standard TCP / IP stack for direct interworking with routers

 Improved system reliability

 State of the art technology
