CommScope Master Unit ION-B

THE ION-B MASTER UNIT


The ION-B Master Unit is a widely-flexible system. Its modular feature
allows it to be developed both for simple installation-friendly, unobtrusive
applications to complex installations, involving a virtually unlimited
number of subracks, and distributed through several floors of a building
or through a 20km distance.

The TPRF31 Fast MiniRack is a 19 x 1HE fast-MiniRack housing 2 slots: it can therefore accommodate 2 of the
single-slots (7TE x 4HE) ION-B cards presented in the following. Thanks to its turnable brackets, the TPRF31 is
suitable both for wall and rack-mounting, and can therefore be used both as a stand-alone unit (for simple ION-B
installations) and as an integration of a bigger and more complex ION-B system.

The TPRN sub-rack is a 19x 4HE subrack with 12 slots, each one
sized 7TE x 4HE. As each ION-B module takes up one or two slots,
each Master Unit can host up to 12 modules, depending on the design
configuration and requirements.

The Master Optical TRX (TFLN): in downlink,


it provides an RF-to-optical conversion of the
signal coming from the BTS, and transmits it
to 4 optical outputs, so as to feed 4 TFAx. In
uplink, it provides optical-to-RF conversion
for 4 optical signals coming from the RUs,
and it combines them into a single RF
output, while providing automatic gain control
in order to balance the fibre losses. Module
dimensions: Width = 7TE, Height = 4HE

CommScope Master Unit ION-B

The Duplexer (TDPN): it combines the


downlink (DL) and the uplink (UL) paths into
a single one, while maintaining the required
isolation. The module dimensions are: Width
= 7TE, Height = 4HE

DAS Architecture

The dual band coupler (TLDN): in downlink,


it combines a low-band RF signal (700 to
1000 MHz) and a high-band RF signal (1700
to 2500 MHz) into a common RF port; in
uplink, it splits a composite signal between a
low-band RF port and a high-band RF port.
Module dimensions are: Width = 7 TE,
Height = 4 HE.

CommScope Master Unit ION-B

The tri-band coupler (TLTN): in downlink, it


combines a low-band signal, a middle-band
signal, and a high-band signal into a
communal one; in uplink, it splits the triple
band signal among the three RF single band
paths. Module dimensions are: Width = 7
TE, Height = 4 HE.

TLCNx-W is a family of RF splitters/combiners which can


be used in different situations, such as:
To connect a BTS with several master optical TRXs. In
uplink, the TLCNx-W combines RF signals which come
from different master optical TRXs into a common RF
signal entering the BTS. In downlink, the TLCNx-W splits
the composite RF signal which comes from the BTS into
more RF ports, entering different master optical TRXs.
To connect several BTSs to a master unit. In downlink,
the TLCNx-W combines the RF signals coming from
different BTSs into a common RF signal, entering the
master unit. In uplink, the TLCNx-W splits the composite
RF signal coming from the master unit into more RF
signals entering different BTSs. Module dimensions are:
Width = 7 TE, Height = 4 HE.

TPOIx includes duplexer, digital adjustable


attenuator, downlink automatic level control
(ALC) and cross band coupler functionalities
for triple bands which allows to feed the
master optical TRX with proper levelling.
TPOI-Px includes duplexer and cross band
coupler functionalities for triple bands which
allows to feed the master optical TRX.
Module dimensions are: Width = 7 TE,
Height = 4 HE.

CommScope ION-B Additional Options

A supervision unit (TSUN), enabling to supervise and


manage the ION-B system through any PC or Laptop,
thanks to a web-interface supporting the TCP/IP, FTP,
HTTP, protocols, and fully compatible with general purpose
SNMP managers.

A wide range of Interconnect Link options


(TIL), i.e. a set of master-slave modules
which enable to expand the ION-B system
through additional subrack stations, up
to 20 km away from the main one.

CommScope Remote Units ION-B

THE MAIN TASKS OF THE TFAX REMOTE UNIT


Downlink (DL):
Optical-to-RF conversion of the input optical signal
Automatic Gain Control (AGC) of each converted signal in order to compensate
optical losses
RF amplification: the converted RF signal is boosted in order to maintain a good
signal-to-noise ratio
RF filtering: a proper filter rejects the spurious emissions
RF duplexing and splitting: the boosted RF signal is conveyed to one or two
antenna ports according to the different versions

Uplink (UL):
RF amplification: a low noise amplifier boosts the signal received from antennas
in order to maintain a good signal-to-noise ratio
RF filtering: the boosted signal is cleaned of the spurious emissions
Automatic Level Control (ALC): the RF signal level is adjusted according to
blocking requirements
RF-to-optical conversion of the signal, which is finally conveyed to the output
optical port

TeraSPEEDSinglemodeFiber

The CommScope TeraSPEED Solution was developed to provide a fiber optic solution that is the metro/campus
backbone for todays performance requirements. TeraSPEED cables provide the widest possible usable wavelength
spectrum by eliminating the high loss caused by water impurities. With this water peak eliminated, the entire spectrum
from is available, allowing for future expansion of data rates and additional services by the use of cost effective coarse
wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM).
CommScope channels comprised exclusively of TeraSPEED singlemode passive products, end-to-end,
are capable of delivering in accordance with application standards.
