Chapter 1 Introduction

Chapter 1 Introduction
1.1 Huawei WCDMA NodeB Family
1.1.1 Overview of Huawei WCDMA NodeB Family
Huawei WCDMA NodeB family includes BTS3812, BTS3806, BTS3806A, BTS3802C,
and RRU.
This chapter presents Huawei WCDMA NodeB family from the perspectives of type,
capacity, configuration supported, and the components of cabinets.

1.1.2 BTS3812
BTS3812 is an indoor macro NodeB with large capacity, supporting up to 12 cells. The
BTS3812 supports combined cabinets, which have larger capacity as up to 24 cells. In
addition, BTS3812 supports cascading with several remote radio units (RRU)
configuration.
A BTS3812 cabinet includes a baseband subrack, a radio frequency (RF) subrack and
a linear power amplifier (LPA) subrack. The baseband subrack performs the baseband
processing of NodeB service data. The RF subrack performs the intermediate
frequency (IF) and RF processing of NodeB service data. The LPA subrack amplifies
downlink (DL) RF signals and enhances power.

1.1.3 BTS3806
BTS3806 is an indoor macro NodeB with medium capacity, supporting up to six cells.
BTS3806 supports cascading with several RRUs.
BTS3812 and BTS3806 use the same types of boards and modules, and work with the
same operational principles. However, BTS3806 has smaller capacity, and the number
of some types of boards is smaller than that of BTS3812.

1.1.4 BTS3806A
BTS3806A is an outdoor macro NodeB with medium capacity, supporting up to six
cells. BTS3806A can adapt itself to complicated climates and electro-magnetic
environments. It is an important supplement to indoor NodeBs. BTS3806A supports
cascading with several RRUs.
BTS3806 and BTS3806A use the same types of boards and modules, and work with
the same operational principles. However, some other modules, for example, the
temperature control device, environment monitoring device, transmission device, and

WCDMA NodeB

Chapter 1 Introduction

battery, are integrated into the BTS3806A cabinet, thus making the NodeB an
independent and integrated system that meets the protection requirements of outdoor
equipment.

1.1.5 BTS3802C
BTS3802C is an indoor or outdoor mini NodeB, supporting up to two cells. BTS3802C
features high integration, small size, and easy installation. As an mini NodeB,
BTS3802C can perform NodeB services independently.
A BTS3802C cabinet includes one NodeB main control unit (NMCU), one NodeB power
supply unit (NPSU), and two NodeB digital and radio units (NDRU). The NMCU
performs the baseband processing of NodeB service data. The NDRU performs the IF
and RF processing of NodeB service data. NPSU provides BTS3802C with working
power supply.

1.1.6 RRU
RRU is an indoor or outdoor remote radio unit, supporting up to two cells. It features
high integration, small size and easy installation. As a remote radio unit of such macro
NodeBs as BTS3812, BTS3806 and BTS3806A, RRU needs to cooperate with its
macro NodeB to complete NodeB services. RRU share the baseband processing and
NodeB main processor and timing unit (NMPT) resources of a macro NodeB by
connecting with it through fibers.
An RRU cabinet includes one NodeB radio remote interface (NRRI), one NPSU, and
two NDRUs. The NRRI, together with NodeB interface processing units (NIFP) in a
macro NodeB, transfers RRU service data to the macro NodeB. The macro NodeB
performs the baseband processing of RRU service data. The NDRU performs the IF
and RF frequency processing of NodeB service data. The NPSU provides RRU with
working power supply.

NBCB: The NBCB is on the back of the baseband subrack. There is no jumper on
the NBCB. The ports on the NBCB connect the clock and signal control cable
between the NMPT and RF subrack, the GBUS cable between the NDLP and
NIFP, the input/output (I/O) cable of the NMON, and power cable.

NRFB: The NRFB is on the back of the RF subrack. Different jumper connections
on the NRFB support different NodeB configurations. For details about NRFB
jumpers, refer to section 2.5.3 "NRFB Jumpers. The NRFB ports connect to the
clock and signal control cable, GBUS cable, RF cable and power cable.

NPAB: The NPAB is on the upper part of the LPA subrack back. Different cable
connections on the NPAB, together with the jumper connections on the NRFB,
support different NodeB configurations. The NPAB allocates power supply and
signals to each NLPA, and provides RF input ports and RF output ports.

Note:
z

The RF port wiring on the NRFB and NPAB depend on NodeB configurations. This part focuses on the
cable connections. For more details, refer to the following sections: Section 2.5.4 , Section 2.5.5 ,

2.5.3 NRFB Jumpers


I. Introduction to NRFB Jumpers
There are 12 small-signal divider jumpers and small-signal combiner signals on the
front side of the NRFB, that is, the side hosting the boards. You must remove the
boards from the NRFB to set NRFB jumpers.
The NRFB includes two parts with six jumpers as the small-signal dividers on the upper
part and six jumpers as the small-signal combiners on the lower part, as illustrated in
Figure 2-10.

II. Settings of NRFB Jumpers


There are two modes of settings for both small-signal dividers and small-signal
combiners as follows:
z

Mode A for small-signal dividers and small-signal combiners: The settings in this
mode divide one-line RF signals into four lines and combine four-line RF signals
into one line. Figure 2-10 illustrates the jumpers on the NRFB in mode A. All the
small-signal jumpers connect to the MCX sockets on the left.

Mode B for small-signal dividers and small-signal combiners: The settings in this
mode divide one-line RF signals into two lines and combine two-line RF signals
into one line. Figure 2-11 illustrates the jumpers on the NRFB in mode B. All the
small-signal jumpers connect to the MCX sockets on the right.

Note:
The subsequent signal flow direction of NDDLx, where x corresponds to the NDDL number, is as follows:
z

The amplified RF main signals enter NDDLx through the NDDLx_TXM port on the backplane. After
that, the signals run from the ANTA port on the NDDLx to the ANT_xA antenna connector on the
cabinet top through the internal RF cables. Finally, the signals are transmitted through the antenna and
feeder system connected to the ANT_xA port.

The amplified RF diversity signals enter NDDLx through the NDDLx_TXD port on the backplane.
After that, the signals run from the ANTB port on the NDDLx to the ANT_xB antenna connector on
the cabinet top through the internal RF cables. Finally, the signals are transmitted through the antenna
and feeder system connected to the ANT_xB port.

3.5 BTS3806 Backplanes and their RF Port Wiring


3.5.1 Overview of BTS3806 Backplanes and their RF Ports Wiring
This part describes the backplanes, backplane jumpers, and backplane wiring related
to NodeB configuration types.
z

Backplanes: This part presents the backplanes of BTS3806 cabinet and their
wiring. The backplanes include the NBCB, NRFB and NPAB.

RF port wiring between NRFB and NPAB: This part presents the RF port wiring
between NRFB and NPAB under typical NodeB configurations. The wiring
depends on NodeB configurations. The typical configurations include 2-way Rx
and 3-sector mode and OTSR mode.

3.5.2 Backplanes
The backplanes host the boards of BTS3806. They provide power and interconnection
signal circuits for the boards inside the subracks, and provide ports for inter-subrack
cable connection.
BTS3806 includes three backplanes as follows:
z

NBCB: The NBCB is on the back of the baseband subrack. There is no jumper on
the NBCB. The ports on the NBCB connect the clock and control signal cable
between the NMPT and RF subrack, the GBUS cable between the NDLP and
NIFP, the I/O cable of the NMON, and power cable.

NRFB: The NRFB is on the back of the RF subrack. There is no jumper on the
NRFB. The NRFB ports connect to the clock and signal control cable, GBUS cable,
RF cable, and power cable.

NPAB: The NPAB is on the upper part of the LPA subrack back. Different cable
connections on the NPAB support different NodeB configurations. The NPAB
allocates power supply and signals to each NLPA, and provides RF input ports
and RF output ports.

Notes:
z

The RF port wiring on the NRFB and NPAB depend on NodeB configurations. This part focuses on the
cable connections. For more details, refer to section 3.5.3 and section 3.5.4 .

Note:
The susequent signal flow direction of NDDLx, where x corresponds to the NDDL number, is as follows:
z

The amplified RF main signals enter NDDLx through the port NDDLx_TXM on the backplane. After
that, the signals run from the ANTA port on the NDDLx to the ANT_xA antenna connector on the
cabinet top through the internal RF cables. Finally, the signals are transmitted through the antenna and
feeder system connected to the antenna connector.

The amplified RF diversity signals enter NDDLx through the port NDDLx_TXD on the backplane.
After that, the internal RF cables transmit the signals from the ANTB port on the NDDLx to the
ANT_xB antenna connector on the cabinet top. Finally, the signals are transmitted through the
antenna and feeder system connected to ANT_xB.

4.5 BTS3806A Backplanes and their RF Port Wiring


4.5.1 Backplanes
The backplanes of BTS3806A include the NBCB, NRFB, NPAB, and extension NPAB.
The NBCB, NRFB and NPAB of BTS3806A are the same as those of BTS3806. Refer
to section 3.5.2 "Backplanes.
The extension NPAB is specific to BTS3806A. The backplane is on the upper part of the
extension LPA subrack back behind the two NLPAs. The extension NPAB is similar to
NPAB in function. It allocates power supply and signals to the two NLPAs in the
extension LPA subrack, and provides RF input ports and RF output ports.

Note:
The extension NPAB provides Tx diversity in the 3-sector and Tx diversity mode of BTS3806A. When
BTS3806A is not under full configuration or when it works in the no Tx diversity mode, the NLPAs is
configured in the LPA subrack by priority.

4.5.2 RF Port Wiring between NRFB and NPAB for Different NodeB
Configurations
The extension NPAB provides Tx diversity for the 3-sector and Tx diversity mode of
BTS3806A under full configuration. The other configurations of BTS3806A are the
same as those of BTS3806.
z

Compared with BTS3806, two NLPAs are added to BTS3806A under full
configuration of BTS3806A in 3-sector mode. Therefore, each sector has two
NLPAs, so Tx diversity can be supported. In this case, the RF port wiring of the
NRFB, NPAB and extension NPAB are similar to those of BTS3806. Refer to
section 3.5.3

The extension NPAB is not configured for BTS3806A in the OTSR mode. In this
case, the RF port wiring between the NRFB and NPAB are the same as those of
BTS3806. Refer to section 3.5.4 .
