The System Module can be used as a System Extension Module operating in a
baseband extension mode to add channel capacity. In this case, it is connected to
the master System Module with two optical cables and a DC cable. These items are
provided with Flexi System Extension Kit (FSKA).
The System Extension Kit delivery contains the following items:

Cable set assembly

2 x optical cable

1 x power cable

4 x optical transceiver

Transmission dummy panel.

When the System Module is used as a System Extension Module, the external
synchronization input connectors cannot be used. Synchronization is provided by
the master System Module.
The Rel.1 System Extension Module provides a basic capacity of 32 CE without the
channel capacity license. Enabling more CE capacity for the System Extension
Module requires that a channel capacity license (RAN912 Channel Capacity LK)
with sufficient capacity is downloaded to the BTS.

BTS capacity can be upgraded by adding a second System Module
When the System Module is used as a System Extension Module operating in a baseband extension mode, a transmission
sub-module is not installed. Instead, a dummy transmission sub-module is installed to provide IP55 protection. This item is
also included in Flexi System Extension Kit (FSKA)
The only connectors that can be used are the DC input terminal and the two optical EXT interfaces connected to the System
Module
Synchronization is provided by the System Module.
No commissioning required to integrate FSKA to System Module. FSKA will be detected automatically.
The auto detection requires that WN3.3 or later BTS SW and revision number exists and is active both in the System Module
and System Extension Module. However, support for the FSMC and FSMD is first introduced in WN5.0.
The initial SW upgrade of the Extension System Module is to be done stand-alone and requires a (spare) FTM equipped.
Rel. 2 System Modules can be used in any combination
Rel. 1 System Module (FSMB) can NOT act as an Extension for a Rel. 2 System Module (FSMC/D/E)

FPFA Interfaces, cont.


FPFA version A101
Power for the System Extension Module comes through the circuit breaker and can be switched off via the circuit breaker. This
must be done when connecting the Extension module to the System Module to avoid hot-plug connection. This is also required
when disconnecting from the System Module.
When the EXT circuit breaker is pulled to OFF position, the power supply to the Extension module is switched off. Power feed
to the System Module is still on.

FPFA version A102, A103 or later


FPFA versions A102, A103, or later have a common power supply via the same circuit breaker for the System Module and the
System Extension Module. This means that the same circuit breaker switches the power on and off to both the System Module
and the System Extension Module.
The System Module and Extension module are reset by pulling the EXT circuit breaker on/off switch on the front panel.
Note: When connecting the Extension module to the System Module, switch off the circuit breaker to avoid hot-plug connection
to the Extension module. Then switch the System Module back on.
This precaution is also required when disconnecting the Extension module from the System Module.

The fuse rates for the FPFA are:


A.101: RF1-3 20.0A, EXT 25.0A
A.102 or later: RF1-3 20.0A, EXT 25.0A (System Module supplied via EXT circuit breaker)

The FPFB does not have any circuit breakers but instead uses electrical fuses, and includes a dedicated power switch for the
System Module.
There are five membrane switches on the FPFB front panel for the outputs.
The switches control power-control circuits and have two states: On and Stand-by.
This allows to individually connect or disconnect the power supply from each of the 5 possible modules:
RF Module / RRH 1
RF Module / RRH 2

FTFB can be operated in various modes:
The FlexiHopper radio link can be fully dedicated to either PDH or Ethernet. It can also be operated in Hybrid mode so that
one part of the capacity is used for PDH and the other for Ethernet.
Total capacity offered by FlexiHopper radio is 32 Mbps. The capacity can be assigned to the different traffic types in steps of
2 Mbps.
In case of chaining or co-location, the PDH traffic can be cross-connected at 2 Mbps level towards the other Flexbus
interfaces. In case of Ethernet traffic, aggregation takes place by Ethernet switching.
The 2 GbE ports can be used to create FlexiPacket Radio chains or offload Ethernet to any other Ethernet media.
FlexiPacket radio offers up to 350 Mbps Ethernet throughput.
FTFB supports various microwave radio topologies:
FlexiHopper tail sites
FlexiHopper chain sites
Chain sites with FlexiHopper southbound and FlexiPacket Radio northbound
FlexiPacket Radio chain sites and the evolution from one to the other.
With the 3rd Flexbus interface, all tail & chain site applications above can also be implemented in case of co-location with any
installed Flexbus-enabled NSN BTS.

The diversity branch Bias-T is only used for MHA support. The operating voltages fed via main
antenna line are 0 VDC/ +12 VDC/ +28.5 VDC and via diversity antenna line 0 VDC/ +12 VDC.
The main branch also includes an Antenna Line VSWR Monitor (power meter for forward and
reflected voltage ratio measuring). The VSWR monitoring system is used for producing alarms
for the antenna line condition based on the alarm thresholds (Single and Dual RF Module).
As a default setting, the minor alarm will be generated when the VSWR is 1.9 and the major
alarm (cell down) will be generated when the VSWR is 2.6. However, it is possible to adjust
both minor and major alarm thresholds within the range 1.5 3.5. The antenna line does not
provide any alarms without a valid license (Line Supervision RAN907LK).

GPS Mediator FSEG


Flexi System External GPS Mediator (FSEG) is used to provide an IP55 protected space for powering and
connecting the GPS module (GPS Antenna Kit FYGA) to the BTS system.
FSEG is only used with the FSMB when GPS synchronization is needed. No specific software is needed for
running the FSEG.
FSEG has the following functionalities:

Transforming operating voltage to FYGA (from -48VDC to +12VDC)

Mediating GPS clock signal from FYGA to the BTS system

Overvoltage protection
FSEG can be installed in the following ways:

On a wall (vertical or horizontal position, using existing screw holes)

On a pole using brackets (horizontal or vertical position, using optional Flexi Pole Installation Kit FPIA)

On stack installations using brackets (horizontal or vertical position, using optional Flexi Mounting
Auxiliary Brackets FMAA)

On the FCIA or FCOA roof (horizontal position only)

In outdoor applications, the FSEG can be attached to the outdoor cabinet roof (a maximum of one
item can be installed next to the FSEG). There are fixing points for the FSEG in the outdoor cabinet.

In indoor applications, the FSEG can be attached to the indoor cabinet roof. In stacked applications,
the FSEG is mounted in the proximity of the BTS.

FSEG can be installed either horizontally (cable lead-ins on the side) or vertically (cable lead-ins facing
down)
