GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Wet conditions increase the potential for receiving an electrical shock when installing or
using electrically- powered equipment. To prevent electrical shock, never install or use
electrical equipment in a wet location or during a lightning storm.
This equipment uses a Class 1 Laser according to FDA/ CDRH rules. Laser radiation can
seriously damage the retina of the eye. Do not look into the ends of any optical fiber. Do
not look directly into the optical transceiver of any digital unit or exposure to laser
radiation may result. An optical power meter should be used to verify active fibers. A
protective cap or hood MUST be immediately placed over any radiating transceiver or
optical fiber connector to avoid the potential of dangerous amounts of radiation
exposure. This practice also prevents dirt particles from entering the adapter or
connector.
This system is an RF Transmitter and continuously emits RF energy. Maintain 3 foot
(91.4 cm) minimum clearance from the antenna while the system is operating. Wherever
possible, shut down the RAN before servicing the antenna.
Always allow sufficient fiber length to permit routing of patch cords and pigtails without
severe bends. Fiber optic patch cords or pigtails may be permanently damaged if bent
or curved to a radius of less than 2 inches (5.1 cm).
Exterior surfaces of the Remote may be hot. Use caution during servicing.

1.2 BASIC SYSTEM COMPONENTS
A very basic Prism system consists of a Host Unit (Host) and a Remote Unit (Remote):
The Host is a three rack unit high chassis with multiple cards that mounts in a
standard equipment rack.
The Remote consists of multiple electronic and optical modules mounted in an
outdoor enclosure.
On an optional basis, the Prism system supports reverse path diversity. In addition,
various accessory items including a passive Wavelength Division Multiplexer (WDM)
system, Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexer (CWDM) system, and expansion
panels are available as accessories.
Control and monitoring functions are provided by the FlexWave Element
Management System (EMS).
Some examples of FlexWave Prism Systems are shown in Figure 1-1, Figure 1-2,
Figure 1-3.

1.3 MULTI-HOST SYSTEMS
ADCs FlexWave Prism provides a Multi-Host feature that allows a Prism Remote to be
shared by multiple Host Units. To accomplish this:
One Host is designated as the IP Manager for a set of Remotes; this Host can serve
as IP manager for multiple Remotes. As the IP Manager, the managing Host
controls the exchange of management data with the Remote(s).
There is no Host to Host connectivity.
A Prism Remote can receive bands over multiple fibers that originate on different
Hosts. However, only one Host, the IP Manager, can manage the Remote. If a Host
attempts to manage a Remote already under the management of an IP Manager,
the second Host causes an IP Conflict fault (see Viewing Host SeRF Optical Ports
on page 212).
All the Hosts in a Multi-Host network can be configured to serve as clock master.
Each Host will be configured with a priority level in the range of 0-15. The Host
with the priority level of 1 distributes the clock in the network. If the Host
designated as clock master fails or shuts down, the Host with the next highest
priority level takes over. (For information on setting the master clock, see Set the
Clock Priority Level on page 138.)
The FlexWave EMS provides a Linking Mode parameter that can be set to Automated
or Manual for each Host. The Linking Mode is applicable for all Remotes connected
to the IP Manager. A Multi-Host system requires that the Linking Mode be set to
Manual (see (Optional) Configuring Multi-Host Systems for Manual Mode on
page 156.
The Host that manages the Remote must be able to provision one or more
passbands on that Remote for which the Host does not have a DART card. Remote
DARTs are linked back to one or more Hosts in a Multi-Host system.

1.4.2 DARTs and Remote Units
The Remote DARTs are encased in its RF Module. Each RF Module will have up to two
Classic DARTs or Single SuperDARTs, or one Dual SuperDART, and there can be up to:
one RF Module in a Single-Band chassis
two RF Modules in a Dual-Band chassis
three RF Modules in a Tri-Band chassis
four RF Modules in a Quad-Band chassis.
The Remote DART Interface cards (RDI) and the Remote SeRF interface board (RSI)
provide Remote SeRF and DART connectivity for the Prism high speed digital
connections. The configuration of the DART cards provide the RF spectrum.
Prism Remote RF Modules are not field serviceable. To replace a DART within a Prism
Remote, you must replace the RF Module.

1.5 E911 SUPPORT
The DART type determines the maximum number of links, where there can be up to
8 DARTs for a 35MHz spectrum and up to 4 DARTs for a <75MHz spectrum.
E911 support may be achieved by using a configuration similar to the one shown in
Figure 1-8. Remote simulcasting in this configuration requires analog splitting and
combining to and from the individual Host DARTs. External analog
splitting/combining ensures that the E911 system receives uplink signals from each
Remote location before they are combined with uplink signals from the other
Remotes in the simulcast.

Fiber Optic Transport

ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
1.6 FIBER OPTIC TRANSPORT
In a typical Prism system the Host is connected to the Remote using two single-mode
optical fibers. One fiber is used to transport the forward path optical signal and a
second fiber is used to transport the reverse path optical signal. With the diversity
option, the diversity reverse path optical signal is sent on the same reverse path
fiber. (However, the diversity signal can also be transmitted on a separate fiber pair
if more than 12 timeslots are required at a single Remote.) Because the optical signal
is digital, the input and output RF signal levels at the Host or the Remote are not
dependent on the level of the optical signal or the length of the optical fiber. A
diagram of the standard fiber optic transport system for both a non-diversity and
diversity system is shown in Figure 1-9.
The maximum length of the optical links is dependent on the loss specifications of
the optical fiber and the losses imposed by the various connectors and splices. The
system provides an optical budget of 25 dB (typical) when used with 9/125
single-mode fiber. There must be at least 10 dB of optical loss to prevent over-driving
and possible damage to the optical receiver.
Figure 1-9. Standard Fiber Optic Transport Application
The SeRF (Serialized RF) digital protocol consists of digitized RF, Fast Ethernet, and
Host to Remote communication and management. The protocol provides you with
full access to the 100BASE-T (Ethernet) connection between the Host and each
Remote, and the ability to provision the RF spectrum of the DARTs. The digitized RF
portion of the SeRF protocol is divided into 12 timeslots, with each timeslot
representing roughly 5 MHz of digitized RF spectrum. Utilizing the full 12 timeslots
yields between 60 and 75 MHz of total digitized RF on each SeRF Small Form-Factor
Pluggable (SFP) laser connection.

The available RF bandwidth per timeslot is shown in Table 1-2.
For example, a user who wishes to transport PCS A block, Cellular A, and AWS B block,
the system would require the following:
PCS A 15MHz, 3 timeslots
Cellular A 10MHz, 2 timeslots
AWS B 10MHz, 2 timeslots
Total = 35MHz, 7 timeslots

1.7 TIMESLOTS VERSUS BANDWIDTH
Each fiber pair supports 12 timeslots, or up to 75 MHz of bandwidth. Table 1-2 shows
the maximum bandwidth versus the number of timeslots.
If more than 70 MHz is required per Remote, up to three additional fiber pairs can be
brought to the Remote to get up to up to 280MHz per Remote (or 300MHz if all four
are GSM-1800). This supports applications where there are two Classic DARTs or
Single SuperDARTs or one Dual SuperDART in a Remote RF Module.
The SeRF (Serialized RF) digital protocol consists of digitized RF, 100BASE-T Ethernet,
and Host to Remote communication and management. The protocol provides you
with full access to the 100BASE-T Ethernet connection between the Host and each
Remote, and the ability to provision the RF spectrum of the DARTs. The digitized RF
portion of the SeRF protocol is divided into 12 timeslots, with each timeslot
representing roughly 5 MHz of digitized RF spectrum. Utilizing the full 12 timeslots
yields between 60 and 80 MHz of total digitized RF on each SeRF SFP laser connection.

1.8 BANDWIDTHS
In the FlexWave Prism system, there are different Bandwidths from which to select,
ranging from 5 to 75 MHz. The different bandwidths allow you to configure the
system to use any contiguous or non-contiguous blocks within the 35 MHz of a single
Host 6-timeslot DART or 60-75 MHz using a 12-timeslot DART. DART bandwidth
options are shown in Table 1-3.
For DART cards, if you need to use non-contiguous blocks within a given 35 MHz,
then the selected bandwidth must span both of these blocks, even if the blocks in
between are not used. For example, if you want to use both PCS D and E blocks, select
PCS D+B+E, which spans 25 MHz. This allows both PCS D & E to be transported and
the B block is effectively unused.
PCS D and E are only 10 MHz of spectrum, four timeslots are required since the actual
transported spectrum is 25 MHz for the PCS D, B, E block, as shown in Table 1- 3.

1.9 AWS AND PCS BAND OPTIONS
The Dual-AWS and Dual-PCS DARTs allow you to span non-contiguous bands:
the Dual-AWS DART comprises two 6-Timeslot AWS DARTs that span the full 45
MHz of the AWS band
the Dual-PCS DART provides two PCS blocks over the entire 70 MHz PCS
spectrum.
In the forward path, the two Remote DARTs are summed together before being sent
to the Linear Power Amplifier (LPA). In the reverse direction, the Low Noise Amplifier
(LNA) is split providing the full PCS or AWS spectrum to each DART. Each DART is
responsible for transporting its own spectrum, as shown in an the following example
for a PCS configuration.

ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
PCS Configuration Example:
If the application requires both the A and C block, in the Remote the forward path of
the PCS A band is combined with the forward path of the PCS C band and these
signals are sent to the LPA to be amplified. In the reverse direction, the Duplexer/LNA
passes/amplifies the entire PCS band. The first DART digitizes the PCS A block
reverse path and the second DART digitizes the PCS C block reverse path and then
sends them back to the Host to be reconstructed back into RF.
The installer needs to provide the separate connections at the Host location either by
splitting already combined signals to/from each DART, or by providing them
independently.
If the two PCS reverse path blocks are combined at the Host location, then they must be
separated by at least 5 MHz to insure that the reverse paths do not interfere with each
other during the re- combining.

2.1 FLEXWAVE PRISM FAMILY OVERVIEW
The ADC FlexWave Prism family of products is a Distributed Antenna System (DAS)
that provides ADCs patented technologybidirectional transport of digitized RF
spectrum over fiber. The high-speed digitalization of a wideband portion of spectrum
allows for transport of RF signals over extended distances, without the RF
degradation that normally results when analog systems are impacted by optical
effects. The basic function of the FlexWave Prism platform is to transport via fiber
optic cable RF signals from a Base Transceiver Station (BTS) to an antenna interface
allowing communication to a mobile device. Multiple BTS communication paths are
allowed over a single Prism system. Each link consists of a Host that provides the
interface between the base station RF ports and the optical fiber, and at least one
Remote that provides the interface between the optical fiber and the remote antenna.
A block diagram of the system is shown in Figure 2-1.

2.2 FLEXWAVE PRISM HOST UNITS
The Host is designed for maximum RF flexibility to address Carriers changing and
evolving spectrum needs, making the most use of cost efficient resources for serving
multiple remotes such as simulcast architecture and sharing of common functions
such as power, control and management over multiple Hosts. Each Host may be
interfaced with one or more Base Transceiver Station (BTS). Each BTS provides the RF
channel inputs and outputs for a designated sector.
The Host is designed as a compact package that reduces rack space required within
a BTS Hotel. The Host is a three rack-unit high single-unit assembly that mounts in a
standard 19- or 23-inch equipment rack. Its front access interfaces with the BTS for
transport to subtended Remotes, and performs the analog to digital and electrical to
optical conversions for transport to a Host and subtended Remotes. Each Host can
support up to eight Remotes. The Remote is a modular self-contained outdoor
enclosure that houses various electronic components.
2.2.1 Host Front Panel.
The Host is designed for use within a non-condensing indoor environment such as
inside a wiring closet or controlled environment cabinet. All controls, connectors, and
indicators (except the grounding point) are mounted on the Host front panel and
allows vertical cable guides to be installed over the mounting brackets on either side.
The Host user interface on its front panel comprises the connectors, switches,
terminals, and LEDs that are described in Figure 2-3 and Table 2-1.
The Host can be mounted in either a 19- inch or 23- inch EIA or WECO equipment rack.
Unless noted otherwise, views of the Host in this document show the mounting
brackets in the 23- inch position. The default is the 19- inch position.

2.2.2 Host Network Connection
The SeRF front panel has a Network port that creates a network connection between
the Host and the network to monitor and configure the FlexWave Prism system
through the FlexWave EMS.
The network interface connection between the Host and the network is supported by
a Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) RJ-45 jack with integrated green ACTIVITY and
LINK LEDs. The Network port supports a maximum cable length of 100 meters (328
feet) to a switch or back-to-back nodes. CAT5 or better cable should be used when
making this connection. The Ethernet connection should not be connected to an
Ethernet circuit used outside the building.
For further information on using the Network port and the FlexWave EMS, see
System Setup and Management.
2.2.3 Host RF Signal Connections
The RF signal connections between the Host DART cards and the BTS are supported
through two (FWD RF IN and REV RF OUT) QMA-Type female connectors. One
connector is used for the forward path RF signal. The other connector is used for the
reverse path RF signal. In some installations, it may be necessary to install a
Conditioning Panel and/or Duplexing Panel (accessory items) to support the interface
between the Host and the BTS. The Host should be as close as possible to the BTS to
minimize cable losses.

2.2.4 Host System Card
The System Card contains the fan controller, the clocking circuitry (internal or
external), the temperature sensor and the DCC contacts. Its front panel provides
connections for alarm outputs, 10 MHz output, and status LEDs. This card may be
used to provide a 10 MHz clock reference to which the SeRF's Master clock is
frequency locked from the internal crystal oscillator. When the internal clock is not
used the clock can be obtained from an external 10 MHz input.

2.3 PRISM REMOTE UNITS
The Remote, shown in Figure 2-4, controls RF emissions, interfaces with the FlexWave
Host and performs the optical to electrical conversions for transport to the antennas.
The Remote is an environmentally-sealed unit that houses the electronic assemblies
such as the DART board and the Power Amplifier, and seals out dirt and moisture.
The Prism uses fans located on the top of each unit to cool the chassis. The antenna
cable connectors, fiber connectors, AC power connector, and the unit status indicator
are located on the bottom of the unit.

2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009
The FlexWave Remote supports or provides the following basic functions:
Receives on the forward path the digitized spectrum from the Host and converts
the spectrum back into an RF signal to be distributed via an externally mounted
antenna system. On the reverse path, the Remote digitizes the designated RF
spectrum and digitally transports it over single mode fiber or Millimeter Wave
(MMW) to the Host.
Provides RF interface (antenna port) for the antennas.
Accepts AC power input.
2.3.1 Handset Interface
The Remote interfaces with the handsets (cell phones) through an antenna. In the
reverse path, the Remote receives RF signals from each handset (see Figure 1-3 on
page 9). The Remote digitizes the RF signals and then converts them to digital optical
signals for transport to the Host over the optical fiber link. In the forward path, the
Remote receives digital optical signals from the Host. The Remote converts the
optical signals to RF signals for transmission to the handsets.
2.3.2 Remote Components

2.3.2.3 Remote Power Supply and Cable Assembly
The Remote is powered by 100 to 240 VAC (nominal 120 or 240 VAC), 50 to 60 Hz
power. The AC power is supplied through a 15-foot (4.6m) three-wire power cable
that is provided with the unit. The power cable connects to a 3-pin AC power
connector mounted on the bottom of the Remote.
The stub end of the power cable must be routed to an external junction box (not
provided) for connection to the AC power source. A circuit breaker rated at 20 Amps
(120 VAC) should be used to provide over-current protection for the Prism power
circuit. It is also recommended that an external AC outlet (not provided) be installed
near the Remote to power test equipment and tools.
The Remote model determines the number of power supplies.
The Single-Band Remote is powered by one power supply.
The Dual-Band Remote is powered by two power supplies.
The Tri- and Quad-Band Remotes are powered by three power supplies.
There are up to four switches that independently control DC power for each RF
Module. These switches are labeled MOD A, MOD B, MOD C, and MOD D and
correspond to the RF Module shelves, from bottom to top, that are labeled the same.

2.3.2.7 Remote Fiber Connector Cable Assembly
A fiber connector cable assembly is provided with 10 meters of environmentally
hardened cable and 1 meter of exposed, un-terminated single-mode 900m optical
fiber sufficient for splicing in an OSP splice tray.
2.3.2.8 Remote Antenna Cable Connections
The TX0/RX0 antenna cable connections are through 50-ohm N-type female
connectors. The Remote includes an internal Duplexer which allows a single antenna
cable to carry both forward and reverse path RF signals between the antenna and the
Remote. The RX1 diversity antenna cable connections are through 50-ohm N-type
female connectors.
2.3.2.9 Remote Grounding
A double-ground stud and ring lug is supplied with the unit. A #6 copper wire
terminated with the provided ring terminal must be provided to link the Remote to
an earth ground source.
2.3.2.10 Remote Cooling
The electronic compartment of the Prism is sealed to the environment. Prism
conducts its heat to a rear heat sink and the front doors. Two external
environmentally hardened fans are controlled and monitored by the system. When
turned on, these fans pull air over the external surfaces of the enclosure to ensure
the electronics run within their rated temperature. The fans run at three different
speeds depending on the internal temperature of the system. An alarm is generated
if a high temperature condition occurs within the enclosure.
The maximum ambient operating temp is 50C (122F).
The pigtail is a reduced bending radius type fiber. Therefore not all fusion splicers will
work to splice it. Do not use a splicer that uses light to align the cores.
30M, 40M, 60M, 80M, 100M and 150M fiber connector cable assemblies are also
available from ADC.
For proper and safe equipment operation, an approved earth ground connection must
be provided. The recommended minimum wire size is #6 AWG copper wire.

2.4 PRISM SYSTEM ACCESSORIES
This section provides a brief description of various accessory items that are available
separately. The accessory items may or may not be required depending on the
application.
2.4.1 Lightning Surge Suppressor (Remote Accessory)
An externally-mounted lightning surge suppressor is available separately as an
accessory for the Remote. To reduce the chance of damage to electronic components
should a lightning strike occur, install a lightning surge suppressor at each antenna
port that connects to an outdoor antenna. The surge/antenna connector on the
lightning suppressor is an N-type female connector. The Prism Remote Unit must be
properly grounded for the lighting surge suppressor to function properly.
2.4.2 Uninterruptible Power Supply (Accessory)
Any power interruption without an external Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
system will potentially result in an RF power outage. If a UPS is required it should be
designed into the site plan during the engineering process.
2.4.3 Wavelength Division Multiplexer System
(Accessory)
In some applications, it may be desirable or necessary to combine the forward path
and reverse path optical signals from a single Host/Remote pair onto a single optical
fiber. This can be accomplished by using a passive bi-directional Wavelength Division
Multiplexer (WDM) system. The optical wavelengths used in the Prism system are
1550 nm for the forward path and 1310 nm for the reverse path. Because different
wavelengths are used for the forward and reverse paths, both signals can be
combined on a single optical fiber. A WDM application is shown in Figure 2-15.

FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 51
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
The Host is connected to a CWDM chassis that contains the CWDM Mux/DeMux Units
that multiplex the wavelengths from the transceivers onto a single fiber in the
Forward path and de-multiplexes the wavelengths from the Remotes into their
respective wavelengths. The Remote within a CWDM system requires an internal
Prism CWDM Fiber Cable Assembly. Figure 2-18 on Page 51 shows the CWDM
Mux/DeMux unit and Figure 2-19 shows the CWDM Fiber Cable Assembly. For further
information on the Prism CWDM system, see the ADC FlexWave Prism Coarse

2.4.5 Millimeter Wave Systems (Accessory)
A Millimeter Wave (MMW) system with a data rate of not less than 3 Gbps (that meets
the FlexWave Prism data rate performance and BER requirements) may be used in
applications where it is desirable or necessary to bridge an open span and where it is
impractical to lay a fiber optic cable. One MMW transceiver unit may be mounted on
the Host side of the open span and the other MMW transceiver unit may be mounted
on the Remote side of the open span. A system diagram of an MMW application is
shown in Figure 2-22. MMW systems are available from various equipment
manufacturers.
Figure 2-22. FlexWave Millimeter Wave Application
A mmw link (3GBps) is required for 12 timeslots worth of RF traffic between the Host
and the Remote. This is roughly 60 - 75MHz depending on the modulation. If a
Remote has more bandwidth requirements (such as 210MHz of RF), there would need
to be 3 point-to-point mmw links.

3.3 INSTALL THE HOST
This chapter guides you through installing a Prism Host, which requires 70 steps that
are divided into 11 sections. Follow the steps in the order in which they are provided.
3.3.1 Unpacking and Inspection
This section provides instructions for opening the shipping boxes, verifying that all
parts have been received, and verifying that no shipping damage has occurred.
1 Inspect the exterior of the shipping container(s) for evidence of rough handling
that may have damaged the components in the container.
2 Unpack each container while carefully checking the contents for damage and
verify with the packing slip.
3 If damage is found or parts are missing, file a claim with the commercial carrier
and notify ADC Customer Service (see Contacting ADC on page 319). Save the
damaged cartons for inspection by the carrier.
4 Save all shipping containers for use if the equipment requires shipment at a
future date.
3.3.2 Install Host in Equipment Rack
A pair of reversible mounting brackets is provided that allow the Host to be mounted
in either a 19-inch or 23-inch EIA or WECO equipment rack. When installed, the Host
front panel is flush with the front of the rack.
Both US standard and metric machine screws are included for rack mounting the
Host. When loading the Host in a rack, make sure the mechanical loading of the rack
is even to avoid a hazardous condition such as an unbalanced rack. The rack should
safely support the combined weight of all the equipment it holds.
The maximum ambient temperature for the Host is 55 C (131 F).
The Host to be mounted in either a 19- inch or 23- inch EIA or WECO equipment rack.
Unless noted otherwise, views of the Host show the mounting brackets in the 23- inch
position.
Wet conditions increase the potential for receiving an electrical shock when installing or
using electrically powered equipment. To prevent electrical shock, never install or use
electrical equipment in a wet location or during a lightning storm.
To insure that all optical connectors remain dust- free during installation, leave all dust
caps and dust protectors in place until directed to remove them for connection.
Install the Host
FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 65
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
Use the following procedure to install the Host in the equipment rack:
5 The Host is shipped with the mounting brackets installed for 19-inch rack
installations. If mounting the Host in a 19-inch rack, proceed to Step 6. If
mounting the Host in a 23-inch rack, proceed to Step 8.
6 Remove both mounting brackets from the Host (requires TORX screwdriver with
T20 bit) and save screws (six-screws on each side) for reuse.
7 Reinstall both mounting brackets so the long side of the bracket is flush with the
Host front panel as shown below. Use the screws removed in Step 6 to re-attach
the brackets to the Host chassis.
8 Position the Host in the designated mounting space in the rack (per system design
plan) and then secure (but do not tighten) the Host to the rack using the four
machine screws provided (use #12-24 or M6 x 10 screws, whichever is
appropriate).
9 Locate two vertical cable guides, not provided with the Host.
10 Back out the Host mounting screws just enough to provide clearance for
installation of the cable guides.
11 Slide each cable guide into position for installation and then securely tighten the
corresponding mounting screws.
A vertical cable guide kit is available separately as an accessory.

3.3.3 OSP Fiber Cable Installation Guidelines
The outside plant (OSP) fiber optic cables should be routed between the Host
distribution panel and Remote outside plant cabinet and terminated before the
equipment is installed. A diagram of a typical OSP cable routing is shown in
Figure 3-1. At the Host, the OSP cable should be terminated at a fiber distribution
panel and spliced to fiber patch cords. Jumper patch cords may then be used to link
the Host optical ports to the OSP cable terminations. Whenever possible, a guideway
such as the FiberGuide system should be provided to protect the fiber optic patch
cords from damage and to prevent excessive bending. The procedures for connecting
the OSP cable optical fibers to the Host is provided in Optical Connections Without
WDM System on page 72. and Optical Connections For Systems With a WDM on
page 74.

3.3.5 Coaxial Cable Connections
The RF interface between the Host DART card and the EBTS/BTS is supported through
two type QMA female connectors mounted on each DART front panel. One connector
provides the coaxial cable connection for the forward path (downlink) signal and the
other connector provides the coaxial cable connection for the reverse path (uplink)
signal.
In most installations, it is usually necessary to insert an external attenuator into the
forward path link between the Host and the BTS. Before completing the forward path
connection at the BTS, verify that the composite forward path RF signal level at the
Host is between 25 and +5 dBm.
The Host should be mounted as close as possible to the EBTS/BTS to minimize cable
losses. Use the following procedure to route and connect the forward and reverse
path coaxial cables to the Host DART cards:
17 Obtain the required lengths of high performance, flexible, low loss 50-ohm coaxial
communications cable (RG-400 or equivalent) for all coaxial connections.
18 Route the forward and reverse path coaxial cables between the Host and the BTS
interface (per system design plan) and cut to the required length. Allow sufficient
slack for dressing and organizing cables at the Host and for installing an external
attenuator in the forward path link.
19 Terminate each cable with a QMA-Type male connector following the connector
suppliers recommendations.
20 If required, install an external attenuator in the forward path.
21 Connect the forward and reverse path cables as shown in the following graphic.
a Connect the forward path cable to the FWD RF IN connector on the Host DART
front panel.
b Connect the reverse path cable to the REV RF OUT connector on the Host DART
front panel.
The composite forward path RF signal level at the Host must be between 25 and +5
dBm. Do not connect the forward path cable until the composite forward path RF signal
level is measured and the amount of external attenuation required is determined.
Install the Host

3.3.6 Optical Connections
Optical connections between the Host SeRF card and the Remote are supported
through Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceivers. The optical interfaces are
standard single-mode duplex LC (flat polished UPC). One SFP comes with the
Hostadditional SFPs (up to 7) must be ordered separately as needed.
There are two fiber connectionsone FWD and one REVfor each SFP. As the SeRF
holds up to eight SFPs, there is a total of 16 connections: eight FWD and eight REV.
The FWD path is 1550nm (from the Host to the Remote) and the REV path is 1310nm
(from the Remote to the Host).
Each FWD port provides an optical connection for the forward path (downlink) signal.
Each REV port provide an optical connection for the reverse path (uplink) signal. Each
REV port can also provide the optical connection for the diversity reverse path
(uplink) signal.
The optical connections are dependent on whether or not a WDM Host module
(accessory) is installed:
If the installation does not include a WDM module, proceed to Section 2.9.2 for
the optical connections procedure.
If the installation includes a WDM module, proceed to Section 2.10 for the optical
connections procedure.
This equipment uses a Class 1 Laser according to FDA/ CDRH rules. Laser radiation can
seriously damage the retina of the eye. Do not look into the ends of any optical fiber. Do
not look directly into the optical transmitter of any unit or exposure to laser radiation
may result. An optical power meter should be used to verify active fibers. A protective
cap or hood MUST be immediately placed over any radiating transmitter or optical fiber
connector to avoid the potential of dangerous amounts of radiation exposure. This
practice also prevents dirt particles from entering the connector.

3.3.7 LC Attenuator
To meet 3Gbps optical transmission requirements, the long reach transceivers (SFPs)
must be used. SFPs have the following specifications:
Launch: 0dBm
Normal Operation: -9dBm maximum to -27dBm minimum
Overdrive: >-9dBm
Underdrive: <-27dBm
RX No Light condition: <-34dBm
The receivers specification is -9 to -27dBm. Based on typical fiber runs, there's
usually only a few dB of loss, so the 15dB LC attenuator (Figure 3-2) ships with each
Host to put the receive level in the optimum receive range.
Figure 3-2. LC Attenuator
There is an option of ordering the WDM with a fiber pigtail. The document for the WDM
option describes using the LC attenuator option and requires an additional fiber patch
cord.

3.3.7.1 Optical Connections Without WDM System
Use the following procedure to connect the optical fibers when a WDM is not
installed.
25 Obtain two patch cords that are of sufficient length to reach from the Host to the
fiber distribution panel.
26 Designate one of the patch cords as the forward path link and the other as the
reverse path link and attach an identification label or tag next to the connector.
27 Remove the dust caps from the Host SeRF SFP optical ports and from the patch
cord connectors that will be connected to the SeRF SFP optical ports.
28 Clean each patch cord connector following the patch cord suppliers
recommendations.
29 Connect the LC attenuator to the patch cord.
30 Plug the FWD and REV path patch cords to the corresponding transmit (FWD) and
receive (REV) connections depending on the remote node SFP position.
Improper handling can damage fiber optic cables. Do not bend fiber optic cable more
sharply than the minimum recommended bend radius specified by the cable
manufacturer. Do not apply more pulling force to the cable than specified.
Install the Host
FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 73
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
31 Route the patch cords from the Host to the fiber distribution panel.
32 At the fiber distribution panel, identify the OSP cable optical fiber terminations
that correspond to the forward and reverse paths.
33 Remove the dust caps from the OSP cable optical fiber adapters and from the
patch cord connectors.
34 Clean each patch cord connector (follow patch cord suppliers recommendations)
and then mate the connector with the appropriate OSP cable adapter.
35 Repeat this procedure for the remaining SeRF SFPs in the Host.
36 Store any excess patch cord slack at the fiber distribution panel or storage panel.
The Host optical adapters are angled to the left. Therefore, always route patch cords to
the Host from the left side of the rack. Routing patch cords to the Host from the right
may exceed the bend radius limitations for the optical fiber.

3.3.8 EXT REF Connections
EXT REF connections between multiple Hosts is supported through two QMA type
female connectors mounted on the System card. One of the jacks is designated as the
IN port and the other jack is designated as the OUT port. The EXT REF interface allows
Hosts to be connected together (in daisy-chain fashion) and clocked through a single
source.
Use the following procedure to connect EXT REF interface cables between multiple
Hosts:
48 Connect one end of the EXT REF interface cable (accessory) to the EXT REF OUT
port on Host #1.
When using the 10 MHz external reference clock the signal must be connected to the
Host before enabling the clock source in the software. If there isnt a working external
clock source when you configure external timing, the optical sync at the Remote will be
lost and all traffic will stop flowing.

A bi-directional wavelength division multiplexer (WDM) system is available as an
accessory item for the Prism system.
If the Prism configuration does not require the use of a WDM system, skip this
section and proceed to Install Host in Equipment Rack on page 64.
3.4.1 Wavelength Division Multiplexer System Overview
The Wavelength Division Multiplexer (WDM) system is an accessory product that is
used when it is desirable or necessary to combine the forward and reverse path
optical signals from one Prism system onto a single optical fiber. Each WDM system
consists of a Host and a Remote. At the Host there is a WDM chassis that contains the
WDM modules, and there is a WDM cable assembly within the Remote. Both the Host
WDM module and the Remote WDM cable assembly consist of a bi-directional
wavelength division multiplexer, as shown in Figure 3-4. Note that the WDM enables
up to three Prism RF bands to operate on a single OSP fiber.

Each WDM module supports a single Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) port on the
Host, but a WDM chassis can support up to 8 WDM modules, which allows it to be
shared among multiple Hosts depending on the SFP port counts and system
configuration. That is, the 8 modules allows a fully loaded Host with 8 SFP modules
or multiple partially-loaded Hosts (for a maximum of 8 total SFPs). The WDM Host
module mounting shelf installs in the equipment rack with the Host. Figure 3-7 shows
a one Host WDM system.

4.3 INSTALL THE REMOTE
This chapter guides you through installing a Prism Remote, which requires 63 steps
that are divided into 9 sections. Follow the steps in the order in which they are
provided.
4.3.1 Unpack and Inspect the Remote and Components
This section provides instructions for opening the shipping boxes, verifying that all
parts have been received, and verifying that no shipping damage has occurred. Use
the following procedure to unpack and inspect the Host and any accessories:
Unpack and inspect the various components as follows:
1 Inspect the exterior of the shipping container(s) for evidence of rough handling
that may have damaged the components in the container.
2 Unpack each container while carefully checking the contents for damage and
verify with the packing slip.
3 If damage is found or parts are missing, file a claim with the commercial carrier
and notify ADC Customer Service (see Contacting ADC on page 319). Save the
damaged cartons for inspection by the carrier.
4 Save all shipping containers for use if the equipment requires shipment at a
future date.
This is restricted access equipment and only service personnel should open and operate
this equipment using appropriate tools
Wet conditions increase the potential for receiving an electrical shock when installing or
using electrically- powered equipment. To prevent electrical shock, never install or use
electrical equipment in a wet location or during a lightning storm.
Installation of the Remote may proceed separately from the installation of the
corresponding Host.

In the following steps, the RF cables and connectors are referred to as MOD N TX0/RX0
and as MOD N TRX1 where N equals A, B, C, or D.
5 Unpack and inspect the RF Module as described in Unpack and Inspect the
Remote and Components on page 95.
6 Open the Remote enclosure.
7 Remove release liners, if present, from the thermal pads on the RF Module prior
to installing the module into the Remote chassis.
Thermal pads are located as follows:
one large pad on the back surface (LPA)
up to two on the front surface (DARTs)
two on the left side for the (RDI).
8 Hold the RF Module so that the DART card(s) face away from the Remote and the
Mounting Hook is toward the Receiving flange on the Remote chassis.
Handle the RF Module with care during installation. Be especially careful to not damage
the thermal- interface material (TIM), which is attached to the LPA. If the TIM is damaged,
the LPA can overheat. Before installing the RF Module, check to see if the heatsink
material is gouged or cracked. If the TIM is damaged, do not install the RF Module and
contact ADC for assistance (see Contacting ADC on page 319 for contact information).
If the thermal- interface material is damaged, the installation and use of the RF Module
may void the warranty of the RF Module.
The thermal pads are very sensitive to mishandlingdo not nick, scratch, or ding them.
Always install RF Modules from the bottom up and do not skip a shelf.

15 Follow these rules when connecting the RF Module cables:
At each RF Module shelf, the Power (PWR) cable and two high-speed-data
cables will always be provided.
If you are installing a Non-Diversity Chassis, only one RF cable labeled MOD N
TX0/RX0 will be populated.
Always connect the high-speed-data cable labeled DIV. This protects against
the cable getting caught in the chassis door.
If you are installing a Diversity Chassis, both RF cables labeled MOD N TX0/RX0
and MOD N RX1 will be populated.
For Diversity modules, all cables are to be connected.
If you order a Non-Diversity RF Module and are installing it in a Diversity
chassis, connect it as if it was being installed into a Non-Diversity chassis.
When you order a Dual SuperDART module, connect both high-speed data
cables (PRIM and DIV) and the RF TX0/RX0 cable.
Adhere to a minimum bend radius of 1" for all RF cables from the integrated
cable guide to the module.
Maintain adequate strain relief distances from connection points to the
module.
16 Working from the bottom connector up, connect the RF Module cables.
a If this is a Diversity chassis, connect the RF Diversity cable labeled MOD N RX1
to the RX1 connector and turn the thumbscrew to secure the cable to the
chassis.
b Connect the RF cable labeled MOD N TX0/RX0 to the TX0/RX0 connector and
turn the thumbscrew to secure the cable to the chassis.
c Connect the MOD N DIV high-speed-data cable to the DIV connector. This
connects the Remote SeRF interface board (RSI) to the Diversity DART.
d Connect the MOD N PRIM high-speed cable to the PRIM connector. This connects
the RSI to the Primary DART.
e Connect the Power cable to the PWR connector. This connects the RF Module to
the DC power connection.
Always connect the Diversity high- speed- data cable, even for non- diversity modules.
This prevents the cable from getting caught between the chassis door and the RF
Module.

40 Cut the antenna cable to the required length and terminate with an N-type male
connector.
41 Connect the antenna cable to the lightning surge suppressor or to the antenna
port; apply 15 in-lbs (1.7 Nm) of torque.
42 Repeat the Step 36 through Step 41 for the remaining antenna cables.
4.3.7 AC Power Wiring Installation
A 15-foot, 3-wire cable with connectors is provided for the AC power connections.
The connector end of the cable connects to the AC power port located on the bottom
of the unit. The stub end of the cable must be routed to an external junction box (not
provided) for permanent connection to the AC power system wiring.
The AC power source must supply between 100 and 240 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz,
single-phase power through a circuit breaker or fuse. The AC power cable provides
three wire leads for line, neutral, and ground connections. The power cable is rated
for indoor or outdoor use and must not be placed within electrical conduit as this will
impede the cooling of the cable during usage. The electrical junction box and any
conduit, wire, and fittings required must be provided by the installer.
Use the following procedure to install the AC power wiring:
43 Locate the AC power cable that is provided separately with the Remote.
44 Route the power cable between the AC power port, located on the underside of
the Remote and the nearest AC power junction box as shown below. It may be
necessary to install a new junction box if an existing junction box is not available.
The antenna cable connections must be weather proofed (sealed) for outdoor
installations.
Use extreme caution when working with high voltage AC power. Ensure all power is
disconnected before working on power circuits.
All electrical work must comply with local codes and requirements. A locally licensed
electrical contractor is best qualified to perform this work. For additional information,
consult with the ADC Technical Assistance Center (see Contacting ADC on page 319).

FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 113
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
45 Secure the cable between the AC power port and the AC power junction box per
local practice. Leave sufficient slack in the cable to allow it to be easily connected
and disconnected from the AC power port.
46 Install any AC power supply wires that may be required between the AC junction
box and the AC circuit breaker box.
The power cable is rated for indoor or outdoor use and must not be placed within
electrical conduit as this will impede the cooling of the cable during usage. The cable
run distance to the AC power source must not exceed 100 feet.
It is recommended that an AC outlet be installed near the Remote for powering tools
and test equipment. This outlet must include a GFCI device for protection.
An appropriate disconnect device, as well as branch circuit protection, must be provided
as part of the installation.

47 Connect the AC power cable wires to the AC power supply wires. Refer to the
following graphic to identify the color code and wire designations.
48 At the AC box, connect the AC power supply load wires to a circuit breaker or fuse.
49 Connect the ground wire to an approved earth ground.
50 Place the circuit breaker in the ON position and then test the connector end of the
AC power cable for proper voltage levels and correct polarity.
51 When testing is complete, place the circuit breaker in the OFF position.
52 Remove the dust cap from the AC power port located on the bottom of the Remote
as shown below.
For proper and safe equipment operation, an approved earth ground connection must
be provided and maintained.
While trying to connect the AC power cable to the Remote AC power port, it is possible
for the line terminal on the cable connector to contact the ground pin on the power port.
If the AC cable is energized, this will result in a direct short to ground for the AC power.
To avoid possible personal injury and equipment damage, always turn the AC power off
before connecting the AC power cable to the AC power port.

FlexWave EMS Overview
FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 125
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
As shown in Figure 5-2, you access the embedded EMS through the Host, where RF
signals are converted to optical signals for distribution to the local coverage area. The
EMS is thus in a position to monitor both types of signals, and to report status,
alarms, and RF signal levels through automatic, periodic updates and in response to
user requests. User requests can include commands to set RF gain and propagation
delay.

11 Click Apply. The new Host Name displays in the Function Explorer Tree and the Host
Summary view as part of the view title and in the Host Name box.
12 In the 10 MHz Reference Clock list, select internal (default) or external. The SeRF
board on each Host and Remote contains the master clock for that unit. At the
Remote, the reference is a clock derived from the Host clock. The 10 MHz Reference
Clock external setting allows you to frequency lock the master clock to an external
10 MHz reference.
You may need to click in the Function Explorer Tree frame and then click Refresh before
the new name appears.
When using the 10 MHz external reference clock, the signal must be connected to the
Host before enabling the clock in the software. If an external 10MHz reference clock is
selected for operation, but is not present or outside of the frequency range of 10MHz
+/ - 5ppm, communication between the Host and Remote over the optical fiber will fail.

6.4 SET THE CLOCK PRIORITY LEVEL
16 In the Function Explorer Tree, select System View, Host-x, SERF (where -x is the Host
name) to open the Prism on SERF of Host-n view in the EMS View Frame.
17 In the Clock Priority Level list, set the Clock Priority Level for the Host. This is in
effect a Master/Slave setting in that the Host in a multi-Host system with the
highest Clock Priority Level (CPL) will provide the Master Clock on the fibers. All
other Hosts and Remotes will recover clocks from higher levels. The highest level
is 1, the lowest level is 14. 0 and 15 are no level settings that results in a zero
pattern being played on the fiber, which effectively shuts it down. The default is
14.
In a Multi-Host system, each Host must have a unique CPL. If one or more Host is
set to the same CPL, an alarm will be generated.
18 Click Apply.
For information on the SeRF alarm indicators, see Viewing the Host SeRF
Summary on page 210.

6.5 PROVISION THE HOST SERF OPTICAL PORTS
There can be up to eight Host SeRF optical ports that correspond to the eight physical
ports on the Host. Labeling the Host SeRF Optical Ports provides for easier off-site
management.
19 In the Function Explorer Tree, select System View, Host-x, SERF, Optical Ports (where
-x is the Host name) to open the Optical Ports view for the Host in the EMS View
Frame. The default Optics Name for the Optical ports is UNKNOWN_SFPNAME. (For
information on the status indicators in the Optical Ports view, see Viewing Host
SeRF Optical Ports on page 212.)
20 In the Optics Name box, enter a label for the selected Optics port. The Optics Name
must be between 5 and 32 characters with no spaces. The only special character
allowed is an underscore, but it cannot be the first character of the name.
Numerals are allowed, but cannot be the first character of the name.
21 Select Ip Enable to configure the Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) for exchange of
management traffic. By default Ip Enable is not selected. If Ip Enable is left
unselected, the SFP cannot exchange management traffic. How you set Ip Enable is
dependent on the system configuration:
In a multifiber scenario, do not enable IP on both SFPs from the same Host to
the same Remote. Typically, the first SFP on the Host that goes to that Remote
is used as the IP enabled port for management communications.
In a Multi-Host system, multiple fibers connected to a Remote come from
different Hosts. However, a Remote can accept an IP connection from only one
Host and only one Host can own the Remote for the purposes of provisioning
and monitoring. When a second Host attempts to establish an IP connection,
this second connection fails and an IP Conflict alarm is triggered. You
therefore select Ip Enable only for the Host that manages the Remote so that
only one of the fibers connected to the Remote will have IP.
22 Click Apply.

6.6 CONFIGURE THE HOST DARTS
Configuring a Host DART provides information required for the DART to operate in
RF transmission. Each DART is configured in hardware to operate within a specific RF
band such as PCS or Cellular; the passband is a software-defined sub-band of the
hardware-defined band. Forward and reverse path gain, diversity status, and
operating mode may also be set when a Host DART is configured. The same settings
are applied to the Remote DART when linked to the Host DART. The Host has eight
slots for DART cards.
23 In the Function Explorer Tree, select System View, Host-x, SERF, DARTS (where -x is
the Host name) to open the DARTs Alarm Summary view in the EMS View Frame.
The DARTs Alarm Summary view displays all the Host DARTS that are present,
starting from slot 1 at the top of the list and working sequentially down to last
DART, which can be slots 1-8.
24 In the Information column, click on the Band-Config link for the DART to be

For dual DART configurations, such as dual-pcs, smr800/smr900 and
dual-aws, both DARTs must have DART Diversity Status set to nonDiversity.
e In the DART Forward Gain list, set this value (0 to 31 dB) based upon the fully
loaded forward path signal level from the Base Station. The Host DART expects
signal levels from -25 to +5 dBm. If the fully loaded signal is +5 dBm, then the
DART forward gain should be set to 0 dB, if the fully loaded signal is -25 dBm,
then the DART Forward Gain should be set to 30 dB. The equation is:
DART Forward Gain = 5 - fullyLoadedBasestationSignal.
f Set the DART Reverse Gain value to achieve the required gain from the input to
the Remote to the output of the Host DART. The range is:
5 to 36 dB for Cellular, SMR800, SMR900, Narrowband PCS & Narrowband
AWS DARTs
0 to 31 dB for Fullband GSM1800, UMTS, Fullband AWS, and EGSM900
The diversity status of the Host DART will extend to the Remote DART connected to it.
For further information, see Link the Host and Remote DARTs. on page 147.
If you are setting up the system when no calls are going through, you must allow
headroom for a fully loaded forward path. For CDMA protocols, the difference from
unloaded to fully loaded is typically 8dB, so if the unloaded signal is - 15dBm, then the
fully loaded input would be - 7 dBm and the Host Forward Gain should be set to 5- (- 7)
= 12 dB.
The same rules applies for GSM carriers, except that the unloaded to loaded is
determined by the equation 10*log10(# RF Channels). So if there are 4 GSM RF Channels,
then the loaded forward path is 6 dB above unloaded.
If sufficient headroom is not present, then the LPA can be over- powered causing a Loss
Of Service.
When configured correctly, the Host DART Forward input can handle peaks of 14dB
above the BTS signal level. For example, if the fully loaded CDMA carrier is - 25dBm, then
peaks up to - 11 dBm can be handled (CDMA peak to average is typically 10- 12 dB). If
the peaks exceed the 14 dB of headroom, then Automatic Level Control (ALC) will occur
to prevent over- driving the A/ D Converter.

ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
When setting the DART Reverse Gain value, the following rules must be
observed:
n The DART Reverse Gain setting can be used to overcome losses from the Host
DART to the BTS. If you want unity reverse path gain and the losses to the
BTS are 20 dB, then the Reverse Gain should be set to 20 dB.
n If you want to match the URH noise floor to the BTS noise floor, then the
noise floors for both the URH and the BTS must be known. Use the DART
Reverse Gain to match these to optimize the reverse path. For example, if the
BTS has a noise floor of -114 dBm/30 kHz and the URH has a single Remote
noise floor of -124 dBm/30kHz, and there is 2 dB of loss from the Host
DART to the BTS, then the Reverse path gain should be set to 12 dB.
n Simulcast changes the actual REV gain level by 20log(n) where n = the
number of simulcast links. For example, if REV gain is set to 10dB in a 2:1
simulcast configuration, the actual REV gain is only 4dB (10dB - 6dB). If REV
gain is set to 20dB in a 4:1 simulcast, the actual gain is 8dB (20dB - 12dB).
The Noise Floor of the URH goes up of 10*log10(n), where n = simulcast #.
For example, the single node Remote noise floor is -124 dBm/30kHz
(Before any Reverse path gain), then the noise floor for two remotes is -121
dBm, for 4 remotes it is -118 dBm/30kHz and for 8 remotes it is -115 dBm.
n Dual PCS uplink splitting causes a 3 dB degradation in the noise figure.

6.9 LINK THE HOST AND REMOTE DARTS.
Linking establishes an association in software between a particular Host DART and
a particular Remote DART, enabling the two DARTs to act as an operational unit in
providing one RF band. There are four pre-requisites to this procedure:
The Host DART and Remote DART must be connected through the optical fiber
and be communicating with each other.
The Host DART card must be configured as described in Configure the Host
DARTs on page 140.
The Host and Remote DARTs must be of the same type (such as, Cellular or PCS).
There must be a sufficient number of fiber timeslots available in order to
accommodate the requested passband (for example, PCS A band requires 3
timeslots).
In the Remote DART configuration page, all Host DARTs are listed that have the same
band as the Remote DART. A link is established by selecting a Host DART to be paired
with the Remote DART.
6.9.1 Use of Multi Fibers
The EMS provides the ability to install multi fibers between a Host and Remote. This
means that, in addition to the minimum two fibers (RX and TX) in the Host to Remote
connection, one or more additional fiber pairs are installed. This is done to increase
the bandwidth between the Host and Remote. Each fiber pair can handle
approximately 75 Mbps of RF bandwidth.
Each fiber is capable of supporting 12 TDM timeslots:
Classic DARTs or Single SuperDARTs support up to 35 MHz of RF
Cellular
SMR800
SMR900
PCS Narrowband
AWS Narrowband
EGSM900
Dual SuperDARTs support up to 75 MHz of RF
GSM1800
UMTS
AWS Fullband
If you are setting up a multi- host system, go to (Optional) Configuring Multi- Host
Systems for Manual Mode on page 156.
Initial Prism System Setup
Page 148 FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference
2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009
When a Host DART is linked to a Remote DART in a multi-fibers configuration, the
EMS uses the first fiber (in numerical order) on which the required number of
timeslots is available for the passband being linked. The EMS will not divide up the
timeslots between two fibers. So, for example, if the passband requires eight
timeslots, and only six timeslots are available on the first fiber, the EMS will bypass
the first fiber and assign all eight timeslots to the second fiber, leaving four timeslots
unused on the second fiber.
6.9.2 RF Groups in the Remote and the EMS GUI
The EMS Alarm Summary of RF Groups view displays up to four rectangles labeled RF
Module / Band N (where N equals A, B, C, or D). Each rectangle represents one RF Module
in the Remote. Figure 6-1 shows how the FlexWave EMS maps the RF Modules in the
GUI to the physical modules and antennas.

being linked to open a Configuration Details window that corresponds to the
selected link.
The table at the bottom of the Configuration Details window indicates which Host
Unit DART is available for use in linking. In this example, the display indicates
that Host DART ID 1 (top row, circled in red) is assigned to DCS Full Band.
This procedure requires that the antenna has been connected and the system is ready
to transmit RF. For information on connecting the antenna, see Antenna Cable
Installation on page 110.

The Configuration Details table has the following columns:
Host DART IdSlot number of slot occupied by the Host DART card. The Host
has eight slots numbered from 1 to 8, read from top to bottom. If the Host
DART is a 12-Timeslot DART, then only the first of the two slots it occupies
will be shown (for example, if the Host 12-Timeslot DART occupies slots 1 and
3, only slot 1 will be shown).
Host DART SFP IdPort number of physical optical port where Host-Remote
optical fiber is connected on the Host.

Remote DART SFP IdShows the available Remote SFPs that can be used to link
the DARTs. 1 is shown in this example, so the Remote has fibers connected to
this Host using Remote SFP 1. If there are two or more sets of SFPs connected
between the same Host DART and Remote DART, this field will contain a value
such as 2/3 or 2/3/4 where each one-digit number represents one Remote
optical port where an SFP is connected for this Host/Remote pair. Each set of
one Host SFP and one Remote SFP supports two optical fibers (RX and TX), each
with a capacity of 12 TDM timeslots

37 Click Apply. The following example shows the completed link (in this case, Host
DART SFP Id 8 has been selected).
38 Set the LPA Operating Mode to normal.
If multi fibers are connected between the Host and Remote, the system will try the fibers
in numerical sequence until a link can be established for the identified passband. If no
fiber is available providing the number of TDM timeslots required for the passband, an
error message is returned indicating that DART linking failed due to a problem on the
host.
If adding a link to an existing simulcast connection, the system requires the use of the
same timeslots. If the timeslots aren't available, the system returns the following error
message: DART linking failed due to a problem on the host.
As soon as you set the LPA Operating Mode to normal, RF transmission will start. Before
you set the LPA Operating Mode to normal, make sure that the antenna has been
connected and the system is ready to transmit RF. For information on connecting the
antenna, see Antenna Cable Installation on page 110.

39 In the DART Forward Gain list, select the dB (0 to 31), which is the actual gain, not
attenuation, that will be applied to the RF forward path signal (where 0 = 0 dB gain,
1 = 1 dB gain, and so forth) The DART Forward Gain is based on the EIRP desired
at the antenna. You therefore need to know how much cable, insertion, and any
other loss (such as splitters) exist between the Remote and the antenna. Set the
DART Forward Gain to achieve the required output power level to meet the EIRP of
your RF link budget.
The following table provides calculations you need to set the gains to achieve the
desired Output power for a single-DART configuration.
For dual-DART configurations, you need to reduce each path by 3dB at the Remote
DART Forward Gain. For example, for a DART Input Level of -25dBm, the Host FWD
Gain setting would be 31dB and the Remote FWD Gain setting would be 28dB.

40 In the DART Forward Delay box, set in microseconds the actual delay that will be
applied to the RF forward path signal. The minimum delay required is calculated.
The acceptable range of delays is 88us. If you attempt to set the delay to a value
outside the allowed range, the DART uses either the minimum or maximum,
dependant on whether the DART is exceeding the set delay (too high or low).
Be aware of simulcast links. Observe the minimum delay required for the longest
link, and set the delay to the same value for all simulcast nodes in the same
connection based on this value.
Here is an example:
Fiber has 8 usec per mile of fiber.
Remote 1 has 5 miles of fiber (40 usec of fiber delay).
Remote 2 has 10 miles of fiber (80 usec of fiber delay).
Remotes are set to Cellular A"/A Band which has 8 usec of system delay. The
delay ranges will therefore be:
Remote 1 delay (48-136)
Remote 2 delay (88-176)
The system calculates these delay valuesthis is a typical example based on the fiber
lengths provided. You select a delay value thats within the range calculated by the
system.
Set the delays to the same values for all nodes in the network in order to:
Optimize simulcast
Make BTS datafill changes simple (same delay offsets for all nodes)
Simplify E-911 integration (same delay offsets for all nodes)
Delays cannot be shortened; they can only be lengthened. The recommended
approach is to normalize all Remotes to the longer minimum delay. In this
example the delay would therefore have to be 88 usec.
41 In the DART Reverse Delay box, set in microseconds the actual delay that will be
applied to the RF reverse path signal. The actual delay of the RF path will be within
1 usec. For E-911 TDOA applications, the reverse path delay must be measured to
achieve the +/- 50 nsec delay accuracy specified for DAS networks. The FWD and
REV delay values are usually the same because the fiber path between the two is
typically the same.

6.11 (OPTIONAL) CONFIGURING MULTI-HOST SYSTEMS
FOR MANUAL MODE
When the Prism system is set to Automated linking mode, you establish a link in the
Configuration Details window by selecting the Host DART to link to and then clicking
Apply (see Link a Remote DART to a Host DART on page 150). The link is then
established on both the Host and Remote ends, using the fiber and the timeslots that
are automatically selected by the FlexWave EMS. The Remote DART also automatically
adopts the Host DART's pass band and diversity setting.
Multi-Host systems must be set to Manual linking mode so each side of the link (Host
and Remote) can be established independently. The Network Administrator must also
manually specify the fiber, timeslots, pass band, and diversity status for each end.
There is no system crosscheck to validate the selectionsso the setup described in
this section should be performed only by an administrator who is very familiar with
the concepts involved.
6.11.1 Set the Multi-Host System to Manual Mode
1 In the Function Explorer Tree, select System View, Host-Unknown_HostName to open
the Host Summary view in the EMS View Frame. (For information on the read-only
status indicators in the Host Summary view, see Viewing the Host Summary on

starting from slot 1 at the top of the list and working sequentially down to last
DART, which can be slots 1-8.
5 In the Information column, click on the Band-Config link for the DART to be
configured.
You can only switch between the Automated and Manual modes when there are no active
links in the system. Once a link is established the mode is locked and selections in the

c In the New Link list, select the SFP ID for the fiber to be used to communicate
with the Remote for the DART's RF. Only the IDs of fiber with enough available
contiguous timeslots for the selected passband will be available in the New Link
list. The table in the lower part of the screen shows which fibers are available
and which timeslots on the fibers are in use. Be careful to select a fiber to the
Remote to which you want to link.
d In the Timeslots list, select the timeslots on the fiber that will carry the RF. The
Timeslots list displays the range of timeslots that can be usedonly unused
timeslots will be available for selection. If the DART is already linked to a
Remote, the Timeslots list comprises the timeslots being used for that previous
link. If you are linking to more than one Remote, the same timeslots must be
used on all fibers for this DART.

Standbyforces the RF function to be muted in the Host and its linked
Remote.
Normalallows the system to operate normally (RF function not forced to
be muted), assuming all other system components are in proper working
order. (Default setting.)
The mode Undefined is not user selectable, and indicates that the EMS is
unaware of the current mode.
f In the DART Diversity Status list, select nonDiversity or diversity. For a diversity
application, one DART will be configured nonDiversity for the primary
FWD/REV path signal and the other DART will be configured Diversity. This
selection therefore determines whether the DART card being configured will
carry the primary or secondary RF path.
For dual DART configurations, such as dual-pcs, smr800/smr900 and
dual-aws, both DARTs must have DART Diversity Status set to nonDiversity.
g In the DART Forward Gain list, set this value (0 to 31 dB) based upon the fully
loaded forward path signal level from the Base Station. The Host DART expects
signal levels from -25 to +5 dBm. If the fully loaded signal is +5 dBm, then the
DART forward gain should be set to 0 dB, if the fully loaded signal is -25 dBm,
then the DART Forward Gain should be set to 30 dB. The equation is:
DART Forward Gain = 5 - fullyLoadedBasestationSignal.
The diversity status of the Host DART will not extend to the Remote DART connected to
it. You must explicitly configure the Remote DART to have the same diversity status as
the Host DART.
If you are setting up the system when no calls are going through, you must allow
headroom for a fully loaded forward path. For CDMA protocols, the difference from
unloaded to fully loaded is typically 8dB, so if the unloaded signal is - 15dBm, then the
fully loaded input would be - 7 dBm and the Host Forward Gain should be set to 5- (- 7)
= 12 dB.
The same rules applies for GSM carriers, except that the unloaded to loaded is
determined by the equation 10*log10(# RF Channels). So if there are 4 GSM RF Channels,
then the loaded forward path is 6 dB above unloaded.
If sufficient headroom is not present, then the LPA can be over- powered causing a Loss
Of Service.
When configured correctly, the Host DART Forward input can handle peaks of 14dB
above the BTS signal level. For example, if the fully loaded CDMA carrier is - 25dBm, then
peaks up to - 11 dBm can be handled (CDMA peak to average is typically 10- 12 dB). If
the peaks exceed the 14 dB of headroom, then Automatic Level Control (ALC) will occur
to prevent over- driving the A/ D Converter.

cannot be the first character of the name. Numerals are allowed, but cannot be
the first character of the name.
b In the DART Pass Band (Timeslots) list, select the DART Pass Band to be
supported by this DART. The list will include only those pass bands that are
valid selections for the DART band. For example, if the DART band is
cellular, only cell pass bands are listed.
c In the New Link list, select the SFP that you want to link.
d In the Timeslots list, select the timeslot for the SFP. If the DART is already
linked, the Timeslots list is read-only and displays the range of timeslots
occupied by the DART.
e In the DART Operating Mode list, select one of the following:

FWD/REV path signal and the other DART will be configured Diversity. This
selection therefore determines whether the DART card being configured will
carry the primary or secondary RF path.
For dual DART configurations, such as dual-pcs, smr800/smr900 and
dual-aws, both DARTs must have DART Diversity Status set to nonDiversity.
g In the DART Forward Gain list, set this value (0 to 31 dB) based upon the fully
loaded forward path signal level from the Base Station. The Host DART expects
signal levels from -25 to +5 dBm. If the fully loaded signal is +5 dBm, then the
DART forward gain should be set to 0 dB, if the fully loaded signal is -25 dBm,
then the DART Forward Gain should be set to 30 dB. The equation is:
DART Forward Gain = 5 - fullyLoadedBasestationSignal.
h In the DART Forward Delay box, set in microseconds the actual delay that will be
applied to the RF forward path signal. The minimum delay required is
calculated. The acceptable range of delays is 88us. If you attempt to set the
delay to a value outside the allowed range, the DART uses either the minimum
or maximum, dependant on whether the DART is exceeding the set delay (too
high or low).
Be aware of simulcast links. Observe the minimum delay required for the
longest link, and set the delay to the same value for all simulcast nodes in the
same connection based on this value.
Here is an example:
Fiber has 8 usec per mile of fiber.
Remote 1 has 5 miles of fiber (40 usec of fiber delay).
Remote 2 has 10 miles of fiber (80 usec of fiber delay).
The diversity status, fiber, and timeslots of the Host DART must match the Remote
DART linked to it.
If you are setting up the system when no calls are going through, you must allow
headroom for a fully loaded forward path. For CDMA protocols, the difference from
unloaded to fully loaded is typically 8dB, so if the unloaded signal is - 15dBm, then the
fully loaded input would be - 7 dBm and the Host Forward Gain should be set to 5- (- 7)
= 12 dB.
The same rules applies for GSM carriers, except that the unloaded to loaded is
determined by the equation 10*log10(# RF Channels). So if there are 4 GSM RF Channels,
then the loaded forward path is 6 dB above unloaded.
If sufficient headroom is not present, then the LPA can be over- powered causing a Loss
Of Service.
When configured correctly, the Host DART Forward input can handle peaks of 14dB
above the BTS signal level. For example, if the fully loaded CDMA carrier is - 25dBm, then
peaks up to - 11 dBm can be handled (CDMA peak to average is typically 10- 12 dB). If
the peaks exceed the 14 dB of headroom, then Automatic Level Control (ALC) will occur
to prevent over- driving the A/ D Converter.

Remotes are set to Cellular A"/A Band which has 8 usec of system delay.
The delay ranges will therefore be:
Remote 1 delay (48-136)
Remote 2 delay (88-176)
The system calculates these delay valuesthis is a typical example based
on the fiber lengths provided. You select a delay value thats within the
range calculated by the system.
Set the delays to the same values for all nodes in the network in order to:
Optimize simulcast
Make BTS datafill changes simple (same delay offsets for all nodes)
Simplify E-911 integration (same delay offsets for all nodes)
Delays cannot be shortened; they can only be lengthened. The
recommended approach is to normalize all Remotes to the longer
minimum delay. In this example the delay would therefore have to be 88
usec.
i In the DART Reverse Delay box, set in microseconds the actual delay that will be
applied to the RF reverse path signal. The actual delay of the RF path will be
within 1 usec. For E-911 TDOA applications, the reverse path delay must be
measured to achieve the +/- 50 nsec delay accuracy specified for DAS
networks. The FWD and REV delay values are usually the same because the
fiber path between the two is typically the same.

7.4 WORKING WITH PRISM SYSTEM NETWORK
INTERFACES
You use the EMS to configure the Prism system for one of the two different modes
listed below, which affects how you configure the network interface of the Network
and Craft ports and how you access the system through the EMS. In each mode, the
Host and its subtended Remotes require the same configuration. Both modes require
a DHCP server, which assigns an IP address to the Host and its subtended Remotes.
External Network modeis the default mode. The Host and subtended Remotes are
DHCP clients and expect IP addresses to be assigned by an external DHCP server
through a network Ethernet connector. If there is no external DHCP server, the
Host will not be able to communicate with any connected Remotes.
The Host Craft port has a DHCP server that you can use to communicate with the
Host directly. The IP address for the Host Craft port is 192.168.0.1. You can access
the EMS via the Craft port, but if the Network port is not connected to an external
DHCP server, the Remotes will not be visible to you.
Built-in Network modeBuilt-In Network mode is best suited for when there is no
network to connect to or if the Prism network does not have a DHCP server. In
Built-In Network mode, the functionality of the Network port and the Craft port
are swapped. You connect a laptop to the Host Network port, which is assigned a
default fixed IP address of 10.0.0.1 and all subtended network interfaces obtain a
DHCP address in this same subnet. Alternatively, in Built-In Network mode you
can connect the Craft port to an external DHCP server from which the Craft port
obtains its IP address.
Table 7-1 describes how the system mode affects the IP address for the Host and
subtended Remotes.
Static ModeYou also have the option of giving the devices on your Prism system static
IP addresses. Contact ADC for further information (see Contacting ADC on page 319).
There are potential problems in switching between the External Network and Built- In
Network modes. If cabled incorrectly your DHCP server could provide private IP
addresses on a public network. Set the Prism system mode once and then do not change
it.

be used by HTTP
and SNMP to
connect to the
Host.

a DHCP server with
a fixed IP address
of 10.0.0.1 and
assigns IP
addresses in the

192.168.0.1.
However, you
cannot get direct

7.4.1 Changing to Built-In Network Mode
Built-In Network mode allows all Remotes to be assigned an IP address to allow
communication without the need for an external DHCP router. You therefore set the
Prism system to Built-In Network mode if there is no network to connect to or if the
network does not have a DHCP server. You would also change the Prism system to
Built-In Network mode if you intend to transition to static IP addresses.
1 To open the Host Summary view in the EMS View Frame, in the Function Explorer
Tree select System View, and then click on the Host name node.
2 Set Network Interface to Built-In Network. This sets the Network port on the Host to
the IP address 10.0.0.1 and starts a DHCP server on the Host that will provide IP
addresses to connected Remotes. Built-In Network mode also causes the Host
Craft port to run a DHCP client instead of using the IP address 192.168.0.1.
3 Click Apply.
Only a user logged in under the admin or a Network Manager account can change Prism
settings through the EMS.
When changing from External Network mode to Built- In Network mode, if the Prism
system is cabled incorrectly, the Prism DHCP server could broadcast private IP
addresses on a public network. You should therefore only change the mode once,
preferably during setup.

7.4.2 EMS Access Methods
The FlexWave EMS has four access methods that are listed below and as shown and
numbered in Figure 7-3.
1 A laptop subtended to the Craft port on the Host provides direct access to the
EMS. In this scenario the Host and the Remote can be configured and monitored
through the EMS. This is the default access scenario during initial configuration
and commissioning as described in Access the EMS on page 132.
2 A personal computer with a Web browser connected through the internet or
intranet to the Network port on the Host. This method provides a remote user
access to the EMS through a Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network
(WAN). In this scenario the Host and subtended Remotes can be configured and
monitored through the EMS. After initial system setup, this is the default access
method.
3 A personal computer with a Web browser connected to the Network port on the
Remote provides a remote user a LAN connection to the Host network interface,
which provides access to the EMS. See Accessing the EMS Through the Remote
Network Port on page 177.
It can take a while for the system to update the interfaces (can be up to 30 minutes, but
typically is no more than 10 minutes). If the Remotes already have a DHCP IP address
from an external network and you change it to built- in (in a different subnet), it can take
30 minutes for the Remote to request an update from an external IP address to the
10.0.0.x IP address. During this transient period, there will not be communication with
the Remotes.
The Host will also take awhile to change from an external IP address to the 10.0.0.1 Ip
address, so a period of no communication with the Host can be expected as well.
EMS Access Methods 1 and 2 are true for the default External Network mode described
in this chapter. If your Prism system is set to Built- in Network mode, then the
definitions for EMS Access Methods 1 and 2 for the Host Network and Craft ports are
are switched.

4 A laptop subtended to the Remote Craft port provides access to the EMS. In this
scenario, Remote configuration interfaces can be viewed in Read-Only format. The
Host configuration interfaces are disabled and cannot be viewed. See Accessing
the EMS Through the Remote Craft Port on page 180.
Figure 7-3. Four Points of EMS Access
7.4.2.1 Accessing the EMS Through the Remote Network Port
The Remote provides a Network port allowing communications with the internal
processor and transfer of service data to the optical protocol allowing IP servicing
between the Host and Remote(s). This port is customer accessible for monitoring the
interface with the subtended Host and ENET subtended devices at the Remote. The
Network port is 10/100/1000 BASE-T MDI and requires a minimum of CAT 5 cable.
The network cable must be terminated with a hardened RJ-45 male connector for
connection to the Network port. The maximum cable length is 300 feet (91.4 m).
Use the following procedure to install the Network cable and then log in to the EMS.
Although the Network port on the Remote is a GigE port, the available bandwidth is only
100Mbps (part of this bandwidth is used for system management services).
You cannot dedicate a full 100Mbps of bandwidth for external ethernet services off the
Remotes Network port. For example, if connecting a WiFi access point to the Remotes
Network port, you need to reduce the available bandwidth to less than 100Mbps (such
as, 50Mbps).

7.4.2.2 Accessing the EMS Through the Remote Craft Port
You can use the Craft port on the SeRF Module to access the FlexWave EMS to view
system configuration and alarms. For example, if there is a problem communicating
with the Remote and you have determined that fiber is not the issue, connecting to
the Craft port helps you obtain beneficial troubleshooting information.
1 Verify that your PC network interface is configured for DHCP.
2 If you have a wireless network interface, disable it. Otherwise an IP conflict may
result if the wireless network resides in the same IP subnet as the Craft port.
3 Open the Prism door.
4 Remove the dust cap from the Craft port located on the SeRF Module.
When you access the EMS through the Remote Craft port, the EMS GUI shows only the
Remote in its Function Explorer Tree. You cannot configure any system components or
clear alarms.

8.1 FLEXWAVE EMS USER ACCOUNTS
The EMS provides security, which can be broadly classified as:
User Authentication, which defines the way a user is identified prior to being
allowed to log on to the EMS. User Authentication ensures that only known users
have access by providing a method of identifying each user through a user ID and
password.
User Authorization, which involves managing the users privileges in the Prism
network management infrastructure. Authorization is based on the concept of
user access system configuration restrictions.
There are three user-access levels that can be assigned by the admin:
adminthe default user account that has unrestricted access to all EMS user
accounts and management capabilities. To protect against unauthorized access to
the Prism network, the user assigned the admin role should follow the process
described in Changing Your Own Password on page 196 to change the password
for the admin user account.
Network Managerhas read and write access to all system functions except user
account management.
Network Userhas read only permissions into the system.
There are also two default user-access levels for the Remote that cannot be deleted
or changed:
Operatorhas Read and Write access to only the Prism Remote functions, all
other operations are Read Only. (This user is not available on URH Remotes.)
Viewerhas Read Only rights for Prism and URH Remotes.
FlexWave EMS prevents a login in which the user enters an invalid User ID or
password.

9.4 DECOMMISSIONING A DART IN A HOST
The Decommission button is available only when a DART has already been physically
removed. You use the Decommission button to remove DART configuration settings
and to delete DART alarms from EMS alarm summaries. Entries in the Alarm History
Log, however, are preserved.
1 In the Function Explorer Tree, select System View, Host-x, SERF, DARTS (where -x is
the Host name) to open the DARTs Alarm Summary view in the EMS View Frame.
Only a user logged in under the admin or a Network Manager account can change Prism
system settings through the EMS.
This procedure is for decommissioning a DART in a Host. For information on
decommissioning a DART in a Remote, see Decommissioning an RF Module in a Remote
on page 220.
Decommission a DART only if it has been permanently removed from the Remote and
will not be replaced with another DART. When a DART is taken out of service, this
procedure removes information about the DART (such as associated alarms, links, and
inventory) from the EMS database.
You must delete any RF links before you can decommission a Host DART. The FlexWave
system prevents a decommission if RF links are in place.

Over Temperature FaultRed indicates that the current chassis-internal
temperature of the Host is above its operating limits. Fault threshold is 90 C.
Primary Clock Priority FaultIndicates that there is another Host in a Multi-Host
system that has the same Clock Priority Level (CPL) as this Host. All Hosts that are
in conflict generate this alarm. When all Hosts with this alarm are provisioned
with unique CPLs, the alarm clears. Service is disrupted on all systems when this
alarm is present. The Primary Clock Priority Fault is a Major alarm.
Under Temperature FaultYellow indicates that the current chassis-internal
temperature of the Host is below its operating limits. Fault threshold is -40 C.
Secondary Clock Priority FaultIn a three-Host system, indicates that the Clock
Priority Level for the Host managing the Remote has been changed. All Hosts in
the system generate this alarm. When all Hosts with this alarm are provisioned
with unique CPLs, the alarm clears. Service is not disrupted, but could become
disrupted if the host providing the clock becomes unavailable. The Secondary Clock
Priority Fault is a Minor alarm.
Host Temperature MeasurementGives the current chassis-internal temperature in
degrees Centigrade detected by the Host.
For corrective actions for alarm states, refer to Troubleshooting Alarms on
page 250. For information on setting the Clock Priority Level, see Set the Clock
Priority Level on page 138.

9.6 VIEWING HOST SERF OPTICAL PORTS
The Host Optical Ports view shows the current usage and alarm status of the optical
ports on the Host plus the current values of some key operating parameters. The Host
has eight optical ports, but the Host Optical Ports view only shows active ports
(physically connected to a Remote). Each port in the page represents one set of
forward and reverse paths between a Host and Remote. Physically, this may have
been accomplished with two fibers through that port or with a single fiber (if WDM is
used). Each physical port contains an SFP transceiver with two connectors.
The Host Optical Ports view provides a link that can be used to enter or edit the name
for a Host optical port (see Enter a Host Name, Clock Source, and Linking Mode on
page 135).
For corrective actions for alarm states, refer to Troubleshooting Alarms on
page 250.
To access the Host Optical Ports view, in the Function Explorer Tree, select System View,
Host-x, SERF, Optical Ports (where -x is the Host name).
The Optical Ports view for Host-n opens in the EMS View Frame, which only shows the
Receive power level from the Remote unit (REV path). To see the Receive power level
in the FWD path (from the Host to the Remote), you must open the Optical Ports view
for the desired Remote as described in Viewing Remote SeRF Optical Ports on
page 234.

9.7 VIEWING HOST DART ALARMS
A Host may support up to eight DART cards. Each DART card provides one RF band
for up to eight Remotes. The DART card converts between serial (optical) and RF data
in both forward and reverse directions. The Prism Host DARTs Alarm Summary view lists
all DART cards currently installed in the Host and provides an alarm summary status
indicator for each card. This page also provides a link, for each DART card, to a more
detailed page that can be used to configure the DART card and obtain alarm details
(for more information, see Configure the Host DARTs on page 140).
1 In the Function Explorer Tree, select System View, Host-x, SERF, DARTS (where -x is
the Host name) to open the Host DARTs Alarm Summary view in the EMS View
Frame.

ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
The Configuration and Alarm Details of DART n on Host-x window shows the following
Host DART alarms:
DART FaultSummary alarm state of the DART card. Red indicates a problem
with passing RF.
DART Over Drive FaultRed indicates that the RF signal received from the BTS
is too strong. Fault threshold is +20dBm.
DART Hardware Mismatch FaultRed indicates that the DART type doesn't match
the assigned Pass Band. Examples: After assigning the Pass Band, if the DART
is changed with another DART type, then the DART Hardware Mismatch Fault
occurs. Or, if you swap DART types (such as, from GSM1800 to UMTS), the
DART Hardware Mismatch Fault is raised as the stored database has one DART
type configured, and the new hardware doesn't match it.
DART UnderDrive FaultYellow indicates that the power of the signal received

10.2 DECOMMISSIONING AN RF MODULE IN A REMOTE
The Decommission button is available only when a RF Module and hence the DART(s)
have already been physically removed. You use the Decommission button when an RF
Module and its DART(s) have taken out of service. This procedure removes all
information about this RF Module (such as associated alarms, links, and inventory)
from the EMS database. Entries in the Alarm History Log, however, are preserved.
1 In the Function Explorer Tree, select System View, Remotes, Remote#-x, SERF, Optical
Ports (where Remote# indicates the Remote number that corresponds to a Host SFP
port number and n is the Remote name).
The Alarm Summary of RF Groups view opens in the EMS View Frame. For a
description of the RF Groups, see RF Groups in the Remote and the EMS GUI on
page 148.
2 In the rectangle for the RF group selected, click on the config link for the band
whose DART needs to be decommissioned.
Only a user logged in under the admin or a Network Manager account can change Prism

Restarting an LPA
FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 223
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
An LPA Reset is necessary when any of the alarms listed below have occurred.
LPA Disable FaultRed indicates that the Linear Power Amplifier is disabled
because it encountered a problem. Check for a corresponding LPA fault listed in
this section (such as LPA Loop Fault, LPA Over Power Fault, and so forth), then correct
the LPA fault. If LPA Reset does not clear this alarm, the corresponding RF Module
may need to be replaced. Contact ADC Technical Assistance for further help (see
Contacting ADC on page 319).
LPA VSWR FaultRed indicates an internal VSWR fault state of the LPA. Check the
Remotes antenna connection. If the connection is good and a subsequent LPA
reset does not clear the alarm, inspect the blue cable going from the
corresponding Remote Antenna port to the Duplexerverify that the connection
is tight. If this doesn't clear the fault, the Duplexer may need to be replaced. Notify
ADC Technical Support (see Contacting ADC on page 319).
LPA DC FaultRed indicates that the voltage level inside the LPA is outside its
acceptable range. If the LPA Reset does not clear this alarm, contact ADC
Technical Assistance for further help as the RF Module that contains the LPA or
the Power supply within the SeRF Module may need to be replaced (see
Contacting ADC on page 319).
LPA Loop FaultRed indicates that the LPA is not sure of the feedback loop, so it
has placed itself into a safe state. You can attempt to recover the LPA by reducing
forward gain by 10dB on both DART cards, resetting the LPA, then restoring GAIN.
If the reset does not work, contact ADC Technical Support (see Contacting ADC
on page 319).
LPA Over Power FaultRed indicates that the power level inside the LPA is high
enough to damage the LPA. Reduce the Remote Forward Gain (see Link the Host
and Remote DARTs. on page 147), then reset the LPA.
Managing Remote Units
Page 224 FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference
2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009
LPA Low Power FaultRed indicates that the internal gain of the LPA does not meet
specifications. In addition to an LPA Reset, try putting the LPA into standby and
then back to enable to see if this clears this fault. If neither troubleshooting step
clears this alarm, the corresponding RF Module may need to be replaced. contact
ADC Technical Assistance for further help (see Contacting ADC on page 319).
LPA Missing FaultRed indicates that the LPA is missing. This fault cannot be cleared
with an LPA Reset.
10.3.2 Reset the LPA
3 In the Function Explorer Tree, select System View, Remotes, Remote#-x, SERF, RF
Groups (where Remote# indicates the Remote number that corresponds to a Host
SFP port number and n is the Remote name).
4 In the rectangle for the RF group selected, click on the config link for the band
whose LPA needs to be reset.
5 In the Configuration Details window, click the LPA Reset button.
Once an LPA Reset is started, Loss of Service occurs. It take approximately 10 to 20
seconds before the LPA signal recovers. The GUI RF power reading will take longer
depending on the number of Remotes equippedfor a fully loaded Prism system with 8
Remotes the power reading could take several minutes to update.

Masking an alarm type causes the EMS to stop reporting alarms of that type until the
alarm is unmasked. By default all alarms are unmasked. When an alarm type is
masked (mask status enabled), the following is true:
The corresponding status indicator shows in gray.
The alarm state is not calculated into the higher level alarm summary
The corresponding trap is not sent to SNMP managers.
To mask an alarm:
1 To access the EMS Menu bar, in the Function Explorer Tree, click on System View to
display a system view.
2 In the EMS Menu bar, select Alarm Management.
The Alarm Management Table window opens.
Only a user logged in under the admin or a Network Manager account can change Prism
system settings through the EMS.

12.1 EMS SNMP INTERFACE
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is an international standard for remote
monitoring and control of online devices. The EMS provides an interface for those
wishing to access a Prism system using an SNMP manager such as the AdventNet
application shown in Figure 12-1.
Figure 12-1. EMS SNMP Interface Example
The FlexWave EMS SNMP interface can manage FlexWave Prism and URH units. This
document describes how to use the SNMP interface with a Prism system.
SNMP Overview
FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 261
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
12.2 SNMP OVERVIEW
The FlexWave system SNMP interface, shown schematically in Figure 12-2, allows a
remote user using an SNMP manager to access the same database as accessed by the
standard EMS interface. The database accessed is an SNMP database called a
Management Information Base (MIB).
Figure 12-2. SNMP Interface
This section describes the FlexWave system SNMP interface, and provides procedures
for using the SNMP interface to get and set system parameters and receive alarms.
In SNMP terminology, the parameters in a MIB are called objects and alarms are
called traps.

12.2.1 Background Information on SNMP
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is an international standard for remote
control of online devices. A typical scenario involves the devices being controlled,
remote computers (called managers) that can control them, a network connection,
and SNMP software. The SNMP software includes SNMP manager software on each
controlling computer and SNMP proxy agent software and one or more MIBs on
each of the controlled devices.
A MIB is a database defined in accordance with SNMP requirements. A MIB consists
of tables of objects used to exchange information between a manager and agent.
Information is exchanged using three basic operations: GET, SET, and TRAP. A
manager uses GET to obtain an object value from a MIB and SET to set an object to a
new value. A TRAP is a notification that is sent out by an agent when the value of a
trap object exceeds a threshold defining an alarm state.
In a manager browser, a MIB looks like an Explorer hierarchy of folders and files, as
shown in Figure 12-3. The items at the lowest level, analogous to files in the Explorer
view, are not files, however; they are objects that each represent one system
parameter (object) and its current value. MIB objects are arranged in tables. Each set
of objects (within a single folder) represents one such table. An object marked with a
key symbol indicates that view is the key value for that table.
SNMP Overview
FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 263
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
Figure 12-3. MIB in MIB Browser
In the FlexWave system, the MIB accessed through the SNMP interface is the same
database as used by the EMS graphical user interface. There is therefore a one-to-one
correspondence between MIB objects and the parameters displayed in the EMS Web
pages. Likewise, there is a one-to-one correspondence between the SNMP trap objects
and the alarm indicator LEDs displayed on the EMS pages. The MIB object names and
the EMS page names for the same items differ in a way that can be easily figured out.
For example, the MIB object fwuHstDARTPassBand corresponds to the Host DART
Pass Band parameter on the Host DART Configuration and Alarm Details Page.
SNMP Interface
Page 264 FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference
2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009
12.2.2 MIB Used by FlexWave System
The FlexWave system uses a single MIB called the ADC-FLEXWAVE-URH.mib. The MIB
resides on the SeRF card in the Host where the EMS software also runs. The SNMP
proxy agent software required for the interface with SNMP managers also resides and
runs on the Host SeRF card.
A complete list of the objects that compose the FlexWave-Prism Agent MIB are listed
in this section in two tables. Table 12-2 on Page 276 lists objects that may be accessed
for GET/SET operation. Table 12-3 on page 292 lists traps that are sent to SNMP
managers registered to receive them whenever the respective fault condition occurs.
SNMP Procedures

ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
12.3 SNMP PROCEDURES
This topic contains procedures done at the SNMP manager to interact with the
FlexWave-Prism Agent MIB. Any SNMP manager may be used. These procedures are
illustrated with examples from an AdventNet MIB Browser.
Figure 12-4 shows the features of a typical MIB browser.
Figure 12-4. Typical MIB Browser
Examples shown in this chapter use the AdventNet MIB Browser. Some procedural
details may vary with another browser, but the basic steps are the same.

12.4 ACCESSING THE FLEXWAVE-PRISM AGENT MIB
The FlexWave-Prism Agent MIB can be accessed using any SNMP manager with an
active network connection. The IP address of the FlexWave-Prism Host must be
known and entered in the MIB browser.
1 On the manager computer, open the MIB Browser.
2 Load the ADC-FLEXWAVE-URH.mib file.
3 Enter the IP address of the Host of the FlexWave-Prism system in the text box
provided next to Host.
4 Enter the Port number as 8001.
5 Enter the Read Community as public and Write Community as private.
6 To see an overview the MIB content, expand the MIB tree.

12.5 CONFIGURING THE TRAP VIEWER
Configuring a trap viewer enables it to receive traps from the FlexWave system.
12.5.1 Registering the Manager for Receiving Traps
(staticnon AdventNet MIB Browser)
To receive traps, the manager must first be registered with the FlexWave-Prism Agent
using the following procedure.
1 Open a telnet or ssh connection to the Host.
2 Stop the agent process with the following command: service URHagent stop
3 Edit / usr / l ocal / f wu/ conf / snmp/ v2manager t abl e. t xt and add a line for each
trap receiver that looks like this:
155. 226. 32. 101 8003 SNMP_VERSI ON_2c publ i c 30 5 ACTI VE
4 Start the agent process with the following command: service URHagent start
This procedure cannot be done with the AdventNet MIB Browser.
The balance of the line should be the same for all trap managers, except:
Replace 155.226.32.101 in the example with the IP address of the computer being
used by the trap manager.
8003 is the destination port used. The Default SNMP trap port is 162. Any port
number is supported.
You can't use both a static and dynamic trap agent configuration. You can only use one
or the other. If you configure static, the dynamic entries will be deleted.

12.5.2 Registering the Manager for Receiving Traps
(dynamicAdventNet MIB Browser)
To receive traps, the manager must first be registered with the FlexWave-Prism Agent
using the following procedure.
1 Open the MIB-browser and load the SNMP-TARGET-MIB.
2 Expand the MIB tree.

12.5.3 Viewing Traps
This section describes how to view traps in the MIB Browser and how to interpret
responses.
12.5.3.1 Date and Time Stamps
The FlexWave MIB imports the date and time in the format of:
EEE, MMM dd, HH: mm: ss
Table 12-1 describes the date and time fields.
For example, Tuesday February 26 at 1:30:15 PM would be displayed as:
TUE, FEB 26, 13: 30: 15
Table 12-1. MIB Date and Time Stamp Fields
Field Contents Variable
EEE Three letter abbreviation for the day of the week SUN - SAT
MMM Three letter month abbreviation JAN - DEC
dd Two- digit day of the month 01- 31
HH Two- digit hour for a 24- hour clock; AM/ PM will not display 00 - 23
mm Two- digit minute 00 through 59
ss Two- digit second 00 through 59

12.5.3.2 Variable Bindings
For Host Traps, there are 9 variable bindings:
1 sysUpTime
2 snmpTrapOID
3 fwuTrapSequenceNumber
4 fwuTrapTimeStamp
5 fwuModuleNumber
6 fwuModuleType
7 fwuHstNumber
8 fwuHstName
9 fwuNotificationStatus
For Remote Traps, there are 11 variable bindings:
1 sysUpTime
2 snmpTrapOID
3 fwuTrapSequenceNumber
4 fwuTrapTimeStamp
5 fwuModuleNumber
6 fwuModuleType
7 fwuHstNumber
8 fwuHstName
9 fwuRmtNumber
10 fwuRmtName
11 fwuNotificationStatus
You can therefore determine the affected module based on the module number and
type (variable binding 5 and 6).

12.5.3.3 View the Traps
1 In the AdventNet MIB Browser, click the Trap Viewer icon on the Toolbar.
The Trap Viewer dialog opens.
2 In the Port box, enter the desired port number. The default is 162.
3 (Optional) In the Community box, enter the community string for the incoming
traps. The default is public.
4 Click the Add button to add the Port and Community list to the Trap list (visible in
the TrapList list box).
5 Click the Load button to load the trap parser file.
6 Click the Start button. Trap Viewer begins to receive traps from the specified port
and community.
To receive traps using the manager, you must first register the manager using the
procedure in Registering the Manager for Receiving Traps (staticnon AdventNet MIB
Browser) on page 267 or in Registering the Manager for Receiving Traps
(dynamicAdventNet MIB Browser) on page 268.
The Port and Community list can be deleted by clicking the Delete Entry button.

ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
The traps when received are listed in the Trap Table. The trap table has the
following five columns.
Classdefines the severity of the trap.
Typedefines the type of the trap or the inform request.
Sourcerepresents the IP address of the source from where the traps were
sent.
Dateshows the date and time when the trap was received.
Messagelists the VarBind list of the trap, if any.
The status of the trap is displayed in the status pane at the bottom of the dialog
box. Moreover, the Trap count and the inform count is displayed in the status
pane.
7 To log the received traps, select the Enable Logging check box. All the incoming
traps are logged to a file. The default name of the log file is trap.log.
8 To view the details of the traps, click on the Show Details button. You can also
right-click the trap in the trap table and select View Trap Details.
9 Click Stop to stop listening to the port.
10 To delete a trap, select the trap and click the Delete Entry button. You can also
right-click the trap in the trap table and select Delete the Selected Rows.
Another option in Trap Viewer is the ParserEditor. Trap Viewer can filter the incoming
traps according to certain criterion called the Parser Criteria. The configuration of
the criterion is made possible by using the ParserEditor.

12.6 FLEXWAVE-URH AGENT MIB
Objects in the FlexWave-URH Agent MIB divide into two types: GET/SET objects and
trap objects. This section describes the GET/SET objects. For information on trap
objects, see Traps on page 292.
Table 12-2 lists all objects within the FlexWave-URH Agent MIB that are available for
GET and/or SET commands. Objects that are available for SET commands are also
available for GET commands.
For each SNMP syntax, there is a range of values defined in the MIB file. These are the
possible values that can be entered in a SET command and returned in a GET
command.
You can also Enable or Disable masking, which sets whether the trap will be raised
(Disable) or not (Enable). Thresholds dictate when a trap will be activated. Table 12-2
lists all FlexWave-URH Agent MIB objects for which traps, masks and thresholds are
sent to the SNMP manager.

A.1 HOST FAN REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE
Continuous airflow for cooling is provided by a fan assembly mounted on the left side
of the Host housing. The cooling fans blow cool air into the enclosure. Heated air is
exhausted through the vent openings on the right side of the enclosure. An alarm is
generated if a high temperature condition (>90 C/122 F) occurs. The fan assembly
may be field-replaced if either fan fails. Replacement of fan assembly does not
require that the Host be turned off.
Recommendation: The replacement interval for the Host fan is 60 months.
Use the following procedure to remove and replace the Host cooling fans:
1 Notify the NOC or alarm monitoring system operator that the fan is being
replaced.
2 Loosen the two thumb screws that secure the fan/grill assembly to the front of
the Host enclosure.
3 Carefully withdraw the fan/grill assembly from the enclosure.
4 Slide the new fan assembly into the Host chassis until it is firmly seated.
5 Secure the fan/grill assembly to the front of the enclosure using the two screws
loosened in Step 2.
6 Verify that the fans run properly following power-up.
7 Notify the NOC or alarm monitoring system operator that the fans are back in
operation.
Electronic components can be damaged by static electrical discharge. To prevent ESD
damage, slip on an Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) wrist strap and connect the ground wire
to an earth ground source. Wear the ESD wrist strap while completing each step in this
procedure.

A.2 POWER SUPPLY REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE
1 Notify the NOC or alarm monitoring system operator that the system will be out
of service for a period of time.
2 Turn power switch to the OFF position.
3 Unplug power plug by applying pressure to the left and right side of the connector
and pulling it straight out.
4 Loosen the two thumb screws that secure the Power Supply to the front of the
Host enclosure.
5 Carefully withdraw the Power Supply from the enclosure.
6 Slide replacement Power Supply into the Host chassis until it is firmly seated.
7 Secure the Power Supply to the front of the enclosure using the two thumb screws
loosened in Step 4.
8 Verify that the power switch is in its OFF position, and then plug power plug into
the power connector on the front of the Power Supply. Make certain that it is fully
seated.
Removing the power supply disables the Host and interrupts service.
Electronic components can be damaged by static electrical discharge. To prevent ESD
damage, slip on an Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) wrist strap and connect the ground wire
to an earth ground source. Wear the ESD wrist strap while completing each step in this
procedure.

A.3 SYSTEM CARD REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE
1 Notify the NOC or alarm monitoring system operator that the System Card is
being replaced.
2 If used, disconnect EXT REF cables from the front of the System Card.
3 Remove alarm plug from the front of the System Card by pressing on the lock
tabs.
4 Loosen the two thumb screws that secure the System Card to the front of the Host
enclosure.
There will be a Loss of Service during the time it takes to complete this procedure. Notify
the NOC and alarm managers before starting this process.
If the EXT REF is being used communications to other Hosts will be disrupted.
Electronic components can be damaged by static electrical discharge. To prevent ESD
damage, slip on an Electro- Static Discharge (ESD) wrist strap and connect the ground
wire to an earth ground source. Wear the ESD wrist strap while completing each step in
this procedure.

operation.
SeRF Card Replacement Procedure
FlexWave Prism Host, Remote and EMS 5.1 System Reference Page 303
ADCP-77-073 Issue 1 03/2009 2009 ADC Telecommunications, Inc.
A.4 SERF CARD REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE
Replacing the SeRF card is a 14-step procedure that is broken into four sections,
Follow the steps in the order given.
A.4.1 Preserve System Configuration
1 Before you start the procedure to replace the SeRF card, decide how you will
restore the system configuration, which can be accomplished in one of two ways:
Option AYou can remove the Compact Flash card from the old SeRF and
install it into the new SeRF before installing the SeRF card in the Host.
Option BYou can reconfigure the system once the new SeRF is installed. If
you are going to reconfigure the system, before you remove the SeRF card,
record the system settings in Table A-1, including frequency bands, gain and
delay settings, module names and network information.
Removing the SeRF Card will disable the Host and interrupt service. The entire system
configuration is stored on the Compact Flash card on the SeRF. If you replace the SeRF
with a new one, the system will NOT be operational immediately following replacement.
Notify the NOC or alarm monitoring system operator that the system will be Out of
Service (OOS) for a period of time.

3 Remove fiber patch cord from the SFPs. Note the location of the fiber patch cords.
4 Loosen the two thumb screws that secure the System Card to the front of the Host
enclosure.
5 Use the two handles to carefully withdraw the SeRF Card from the enclosure.
Electronic components can be damaged by static electrical discharge. To prevent ESD
damage, slip on an Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) wrist strap and connect the ground wire
to an earth ground source. Wear the ESD wrist strap while completing each step in this
procedure.
This equipment uses a Class 1 Laser according to FDA/ CDRH rules. Laser radiation can
seriously damage the retina of the eye. Do not look into the ends of any optical fiber. Do
not look directly into the optical transmitter of any unit or exposure to laser radiation
may result. An optical power meter should be used to verify active fibers. A protective
cap or hood MUST be immediately placed over any radiating transmitter or optical fiber
connector to avoid the potential of dangerous amounts of radiation exposure. This
practice also prevents dirt particles from entering the connector.
Improper handling can damage fiber optic cables. Do not bend fiber optic cable more
sharply than the minimum recommended bend radius specified by the cable
manufacturer. Do not apply more pulling force to the cable than specified.

A.5 DART CARD REPLACEMENT/INSTALLATION
PROCEDURE
Each DART card is spectrum specific and provides an interface between the SeRF and
the Power Amplifier. When additional service is needed another DART card can be
added to the Host. Individual DART cards may be replaced without disrupting service
to the entire remote system. Only the RF spectrum of the DART card being removed
is affected.
A.5.1 Replacing a DART Card in the Host Chassis
1 Notify the NOC or alarm monitoring system operator that the DART card is being
replaced.
2 Disconnect REF IN and OUT cables from the front of the DART card.
3 Loosen the two thumb screws that secure the DART card to the front of the Host
enclosure.
4 Carefully withdraw the DART card from the enclosure.
5 Slide replacement DART card into the Host chassis until it is firmly seated.
