Safety Precautions & Declared Material


General Equipment Precautions

Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those


specified herein, may result in hazardous radiation exposure.

When working with an Evolution IDU, note the following risk of electric
shock and energy hazard: Disconnecting one power supply disconnects
only one power supply module. To isolate the unit completely,
disconnect all power supplies.

Machine noise information order - 3. GPSGV, the highest sound pressure


level amounts to 70 dB (A) or less, in accordance with ISO EN 7779.
Static electricity may cause body harm, as well as harm to electronic
components inside the device.
To prevent damage, before touching components inside the device, all
electrostatic must be discharged from both personnel and tools.

High Frequency Electromagnetic Fields!


Exposure to strong high frequency electromagnetic fields may cause thermal
damage to personnel. The eye (cornea and lens) is easily exposed.
Any unnecessary exposure is undesirable and should be avoided.

In radio-relay communication installations, ordinary setup for normal


operation, the general RF radiation level will be well below the safety limit.
In the antennas and directly in front of them the RF intensity normally will
exceed the danger level, within limited portions of space.
Dangerous radiation may be found in the neighborhood of open waveguide
flanges or horns where the power is radiated into space.
To avoid dangerous radiation the following precautions must be taken:
During work within and close to the front of the antenna; make sure that
transmitters will remain turned off.
Before opening coaxial - or waveguide connectors carrying RF power, turn
off transmitters.
Consider any incidentally open RF connector as carrying power, until
otherwise proved. Do not look into coaxial connectors at closer than
reading distance (30 cm). Do not look into an open waveguide unless you
are absolutely sure that the power is turned off.

Installation Guide

ESD
This equipment contains components which are sensitive to "ESD" (Electro
Static Discharge). Therefore, ESD protection measures must be observed
when touching the IDU.
Anyone responsible for the installation or maintenance of the Evolution IDU
must use an ESD Wrist Strap.
Additional precautions include personnel grounding, grounding of work
bench, grounding of tools and instruments as well as transport and storage in
special antistatic bags and boxes.

Laser
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those
specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
The optical interface must only be serviced by qualified personnel, who are
aware of the hazards involved to repair laser products.
When handling laser products the following precautions must be taken:
Never look directly into an open connector or optical cable.
Before disconnecting an optical cable from the optical transmitter, the
power should be switched off. If this is not possible, the cable must be
disconnected from the transmitter before it is disconnected from the
receiver.
When the cable is reconnected it must be connected to the receiver before it
is connected to the transmitter.

Special Requirements for North America

Grounding: This equipment is designed to permit connection between the


earthed conductor of the DC supply circuit and the earthing conductor at the
equipment.

Introduction
This chapter provides an overview of the Evolution IP-20 Long Haul
(IP-20LH), Ceragons next generation multi-carrier long-haul solution.
IP-20LH is designed for ultra-high flexibility and modularity. It is optimized
for nodal deployment, with a small footprint, high density, and a high degree
of scalability and availability.
The Evolution IP-20LH enables operators to deploy high capacity, long haul
microwave systems in locations where rack space and shelter real-estate are
limited. Evolution IP-20LH supports multi-carrier solutions of up to 8+0 ABC
and IF Combining Space Diversity.
Lowering costs further, the systems ultra-high power transmitter transmits
the highest power in the industry, and can reach longer distances using
smaller antennas. For maximum power efficiency, the Evolution IP-20LH
incorporates a dynamic biasing technique that minimizes the power
consumption of the system to the minimum required to deliver the required
Tx power while, at the same time, reducing the systems heat dissipation. In
addition, installation labor cost and electricity consumption are reduced,
achieving an overall diminished carbon footprint.
The IP-20 series pay-as-you-go licensing models enable operators to build
for the future by adding capacity and functionality over time to meet the needs
of network growth without the need to add additional hardware. Additionally,
IP-20LHs modular structure provides for the gradual expansion of network
nodes through the addition of line and radio cards, utilizing a single 1RU or
2RU chassis.

Installation Guide

Evolution IP-20LH Hardware Overview


The Evolution IP-20LH is a modular unit based on a 1RU or 2RU chassis into
which a variety of cards can be inserted for traffic, radio interface,
management, and power supply. The IP-20LH backplane provides
connectivity among the slots in the chassis for management, power
distribution, and traffic aggregation.
An IP-20LH chassis and the cards it contains are managed by a Traffic Control
Card (TCC). A 2RU IP-20LH can hold two TCCs for redundancy1. TCCs include
two GbE combo interfaces for Ethernet traffic and two FE interfaces for
management.
Note:

In a redundant TCC configuration, the GbE traffic interfaces


on the TCC are disabled.

Radio Module Cards (RMCs) are responsible for the interface between the
IP-20LH and the XCVRs. A 1RU IP-20LH can hold up to four RMCs. A 2RU
IP-20LH can hold up to eight RMCs.
Line Interface Cards (LICs) can be added to provide additional traffic
interfaces. Ethernet and TDM LICs can be used. A 2RU chassis can contain up
to ten LICs, up to two of which can be Ethernet LICs. A 1RU chassis can contain
up to five LICs, one of which can be an Ethernet LIC.
Note:

In a 2RU chassis with two Ethernet LICs, the GbE interfaces


on the TCC are disabled.

The IP-20LH receives an external supply of -48V via a Power Distribution Card
(PDC). A 2RU IP-20LH chassis can hold two PDCs (for card redundancy). The
PDC or PDCs distribute the power via the backplane to all the modules in the
chassis.
IP-20LH provides two basic chassis options:
1RU Fits in a single ETSI rack slot, with one Main Traffic and Control Card
(TCC), four universal slots for a combination of up to four Radio Interface
Cards (RMCs) and/or Line Cards for traffic (LICs), and a Power
Distribution Card (PDC).
2RU Fits in two ETSI rack slots, with two Main Traffic and Control Cards
(TCCs), eight universal slots for a combination of up to eight Radio
Interface Cards (RMCs) and/or Line Cards for traffic (LICs), and two Power
Distribution Cards (PDCs).

TCC redundancy is planned for future release.

Power Distribution Card (PDC)


Evolution IP-20LH receives an external supply of 48V current via one or two
Power Distribution Cards (PDCs). The PDC or PDCs distribute the power via
the backplane to all the modules in the chassis. Each module receives the 48V
input and regulates it down to the operating voltage required by that module.
XCVRs are powered from the PDC, via the RMC that is connected to the XCVR.
The PDC monitors the power supply for under-voltage. The PDC includes a
LED labeled ACT, which displays Green during normal operation. If the voltage
goes below -38V, the LED displays Red. When the voltage returns to -40V or
higher, the Red indication goes off and the Green indication reappears.
The PDC includes reverse polarity protection, so that if the positive (+) and
negative (-) inputs are mixed up, the system remains shutdown.
The PDC can tolerate up-to -60V, with a maximum current of 30A.
A 1RU IP-20LH includes a single power distribution card (PDC) with a dualfeed option for power redundancy. With the dual-feed option, users can
connect two power supplies to the PDC for power redundancy.
A 2RU IP-20LH can use two PDC cards for redundancy. Each PDC provides 48V
power to all modules in the chassis via the backplane, on different lines. A
diode bridge in the modules prevents power spikes and unstable power from
the two power sources.

Fans Module
The fans module contains four 48V fans, which can dissipate heat for systems
up to 270W. The fans draw air into one side of the chassis, and push the air
through the chassis and out the other side.
Fans Module Detailed View

The fan speed increases and decreases in response to the temperature inside
the chassis. When the temperature rises, the fan speed increases, and when
the temperature decreases, the fan speed decreases. The fan speed never
decreases below a minimum level regardless of temperature.

using to configure the unit to one of the management interfaces (MGMT1 or
MGMT2) on the TCC.
Management Interfaces on the TCC

To establish a connection with the IP-20LH unit, it is necessary to have an IP


address on the PC or laptop within the same subnet as the IP-20LH unit. The
default chassis IP address is 192.168.1.1. For example, you can set the PC or
laptop address to 192.168.1.10 and the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0. Note
the initial settings before changing.
Note:

The chassis IP address, as well as password, should be


changed before the system is set in operation. For more
information on these procedures, see DOC-00036540, IP-20N

Configuration
Before connection over the radio hop is established, it is of high importance
that the elements are assigned a dedicated IP address, according to an IP plan
for the total network.
Note:

If connection over the hop is established with identical IP


addresses, an IP address conflict will occur, and remote
connection to the element on the other side of the hop may
be lost.

By default all elements have the same IP settings:


IP address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Note:

After the new IP address is set, the contact with the element
will be lost. In order to reconnect, the PC must have an IP
address within the same subnet as the element.

In addition to setting the IP addresses, the following configuration steps


should be performed in order to establish basic connectivity. For a detailed
description of these procedures, refer to the Evolution IP-20LH User Guide,
DOC-00043450.
