Nokia Flexi EDGE Dual TRX Module (EXxA, 2HU)
Dual TRX module (DTRX) is a 2 carrier TRX unit, used as:
a stand alone TRX module (2 TRX capacity)
or a Sector module with the Dual duplexer module (2 TRX capacity)
or as Double Power TRX, DPTRX (1 TRX capacity)
or for Intelligent Downlink Diversity, IDD (1 TRX capacity)
DTRX consists of:
BB part that is common to both TRXs
RF part with 2 independent transmit (TX) chains and 4 receive (RX) chains
0-2 Wideband combiner (WBC) sub-modules
RX connections for diversity:
2-way diversity: 2 RX inputs/DTRX used when both TRXs are in same sector
4 RX inputs/DTRX used when TRXs of the DTRX are in 2 different sectors
4-way diversity: 4 RX inputs/DTRX used (supported only with SRC or DPTRX)
DTRX connected to system module via single Gigabit Ethernet interface
Power feed from system module via single cable
Phase feedback from WBC (DPTRX)
