OMU

Optical Master Unit


The Optical Master Unit (OMU) is used to convert signals from RF to light when fiber fed repeaters
are used. The OMU is most often connected to a base station. In these cases, an RF coupler is used
to couple off signals that are fed into the OMU. For TETRA systems, an ESU (Entry Shelf Unit) can
also be used in cases when the base station and OMU are not located close to each other. Please see
the Fiber Optic TETRA Solution brochure for a more detailed description of the fiber fed systems
available for the TETRA standard.

In the downlink direction, the OMU picks up the signal from the base station, converts it into an optical signal and
transfers it over a fiber optical cable to the repeater. In the uplink direction the OMU receives the signal from the
repeater via the fiber optical cable, converts it to a RF signal and sends it back to the base station.

Expandable solution: Each OMU can be equipped with up to six optical modules and therefore
support up to six remote units (BSF424). If additional repeaters are to be fed from the same base
station, it is simple to expand the system with additional slave OMU units that in total will support up
to 24 remote units. If there is a shortage of fiber, it is furthermore possible to use just one fiber that
is shared between 2-4 remote sites. However, the maximum optical loss allowed for is 10 dB which
corresponds to 20 km of fiber between the OMU and the last remote unit that the OMU supports.
Remote Supervision: Only one modem is need to communicate with an OMU and its fiber fed repeaters. The modem types available are: GSM, PSTN, TCP/IP and even GSM-R. It is found inside the
OMU and communication with the fiber fed remote units is transparently handled via the fiber that
connects them. The system can be managed via the Avitec Repeater supervision and remote control
software tool, AEM (Avitec Element Manger). All communication between the OMU and the repeaters
both data communication and the transferred RF signal is managed over the same fiber link. This
gives a very reliable supervision of the radio link.
The OMU supports TETRA, TETRAPOL, GSM-R, UMTS and GSM 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz frequency
bands and is always used in combination with one or several fiber fed repeater(s):
