Installation Conditions

Restrictions on the installation environment Other restrictions


1. Do not install RTN 380 on a guyed tower. Do not install RTN 380 and antennas of wireless equipment on the same pole.
2. Even if the requirements for link reliability can be met and the equipment installation environment allows
equipment to run properly in any weather conditions (the sway angle and twist angle of towers and poles meet
requirements), use rooftop towers, thin mast towers, and common self-supporting towers (non-high towers)
with caution based on the local actual situations.

Restrictions on the installation on a rooftop upright pole


When installing RTN 380 on a rooftop upright pole, ensure that:
1. Antennas with a diameter of 0.3 m or less are used. RTN 380 can be installed on a rooftop upright pole only on
the last microwave hop at the network tail.
2. A mono-rooftop mast is supported by three stress support bars. The angle between the stress support bars is 90º
or 120º. This ensures that the mast can resist 28 m/s wind (force 10 wind) and do not sway or twist in the wind.
3. Only one microwave antenna is installed on one pole.
4. A pole is supported by two side support bars to ensure that the pole does not sway or twist in the wind.
5. A pole is not higher than 6 m.
6. An antenna is not installed on the top of a pole. An antenna should be installed at a lower position that is close to
the support point. Antenna mounting brackets are fastened.

Restrictions on the installation on a thick mast tower


When installing RTN 380 on a thick mast tower, ensure that:
1. Antennas with a diameter of 0.3 m or less are used.
2. A pole is installed securely. It can resist 28 m/s wind (force 10 wind) and do not sway or twist in the wind.
3. Antenna mounting brackets are fastened.

Restrictions on the installation on a self-supporting tower (high tower in the central


equipment room)
When installing RTN 380 on a self-supporting tower, ensure that:
1. Antennas with a diameter of 0.3 m or less are used.
2. An antenna is installed at a position that is lower than 50% of the tower height. The twist angle of the antenna is
less than 0.69º. For example, if a tower is 60 m high, an antenna should be installed at a position lower than 30 m.
3. The tower is not overloaded.
4. A pole is installed securely. It can resist 28 m/s wind (force 10 wind) and do not sway or twist in the wind.
5. Antenna mounting brackets are fastened.

Restrictions on the installation on the wall, chimney, or concrete tower


When installing RTN 380 on the wall, chimney, or concrete tower, ensure that:
1. Antennas with a diameter of 0.6 m or less are used.
2. Use the wall-mounting mode. A pole can resist 28 m/s wind (force 10 wind) and do not sway or twist in the wind.
3. Antenna mounting brackets are fastened.

Safety Precautions
Avoiding leaving any Ethernet service cable unconnected Power over Ethernet (Indoor PI)

Do not leave any Ethernet service cable unconnected (see Figure 1). •Do not install indoor PIs outdoors.

If an Ethernet service port is not in use, remove the cable from it and fasten a PG cover or protective cover onto it. •Always hold the insulated part of the P&E cable. Never touch the RJ45 connector.
•Do not touch the pins inside the P&E port on the PI with your hands or a conductor.
•Be sure to connect the power cables of the PI correctly to the positive and negative terminals of the power

Safety Precautions
Power over Ethernet (Outdoor PI) Power over Ethernet (Networked with the RTN 900)

•If outdoor PIs are connected to indoor equipment, the indoor equipment must have surge protection capabilities. If
the indoor equipment does not have surge protection capabilities, the PIs should be installed indoors for surge
protection and easy maintenance.
•Always hold an insulated part of the P&E cable. Never touch the RJ45 connector.
•Do not touch the pins inside the P&E port on the PI with your hands or a conductor.
•Be sure to connect the power cables of the PI correctly to the positive and negative terminals of the power supply
device (see No.1 in the figure below). To prevent damage to power cables or devices caused by short-circuits, install
a circuit breaker on the negative terminal of the power supply device (see No.2 in the figure below).

Precautions for Installing the RTN 380 onto a High Tower
When the RTN 380 is installed on a self-supporting tower, maintenance personnel cannot performance off-tower maintenance
through Wi-Fi, because the RTN 380 is installed at a high position. You can use the following methods to solve this issue:
Figure 1
• If an NE receives/transmits services through the P&E port, use an outdoor network cable to connect the NE's GE electrical
port and the PI's MGMT port. During the off-tower maintenance, connect a laptop on which the Web LCT is installed to the
PI's NMS port, or remove the outdoor network cable connected to the MGMT port and connect the cable to the laptop. See
Figure 1.
• If an NE receives/transmits services through the GE optical port, no extra outdoor network cable is required. During the off-
tower maintenance, connect a laptop on which the Web LCT is installed to the GE port of the PI. See Figure 2.
In the off-tower maintenance, configure the GE electrical port to which the Web LCT is connected as an NMS port on the NMS, or RTN 380
P&E port
configure the network adapter of the laptop to receive and transmit IP packets carrying DCN VLAN IDs.

Installing the RTN 380

1 Installing the RTN 380 at the Edge of a Mobile Backhaul Network (Indoor PI Required)
1. Cover unused ports with caps/PG covers. Retain removed caps for future use.
2. Before installing the RTN 380, remove the protective cover and film on the antenna port. Otherwise, the signal transmission will be affected.
3. Different methods can be used to change the polarization direction of antennas. If the method provided in this document is not suitable for the type of antenna you have, use the method provided in the installation manual delivered with your antennas.
4. The polarization direction of antennas is vertical by default. If the planned polarization direction is horizontal, change the polarization direction to horizontal.
5. If an antenna with a diameter of 0.2 m, 0.3 m or 0.6 m is used in a direct mount scenario, you may install the RTN 380 on the antenna and then hoist them both into position on the tower.
6. Before installing a cable, bind the cable section that links the cable connector to the pole. This will protect the cable connector from damage. Be sure that the length of cable running from the binding point to the RTN 380 is sufficient to attach the cable connector to the
Ethernet service port on the RTN 380.

3. Different methods can be used to change the polarization direction of antennas. If the method provided in this document is not suitable for the type of antenna you have, use the method provided in the installation manual delivered with your antennas.
4. The polarization direction of antennas is vertical by default. If the planned polarization direction is horizontal, change the polarization direction to horizontal.
5. If an antenna with a diameter of 0.2 m, 0.3 m or 0.6 m is used in a direct mount scenario, you may install the RTN 380 on the antenna and then hoist them both into position on the tower.
6. Before installing a cable, bind the cable section that links the cable connector to the pole. This will protect the cable connector from damage. Be sure that the length of cable running from the binding point to the RTN 380 is sufficient to attach the cable connector to the
Ethernet service port on the RTN 380.

8 Cables are bound to the cable ladder or tray at intervals of approximately 1 m (3.28 feet).

9 Binding tapes are cut off with an excess section reserved at the ends.

10 Attach and bind cable labels correctly. Labels must be aligned and face the same direction.

11 The excess cable is coiled into a roll with a diameter not less than 60 cm (23.62 inches). The roll is bound to the pole or
the tower.

12 The cable ground point is properly protected.

13 The power cable does not bend in the range of 0.5 m (1.64 feet) above and below the ground clip.

14 The ground cable is routed from the top downwards and the angle between the ground cable and other cables is less
than 15 degrees.

15 The ground cable of the RTN 380 is properly connected.

16 The RSSI/NMS maintenance compartment is closed and screwed.
