WARNING - HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES


1. On AC installations, hazardous voltages exist. Use caution when verifying or working
with AC power. Remove metal jewellery that could come into contact with AC power.
2. On DC sections, short circuiting the low voltage, low impedance circuits can cause
severe arcing that may result in burns or eye damage. Remove rings, watches etc. to
avoid shorting DC circuits.

NOTES
1. Airspan products do not contain hazardous substances (as defined in UK Control of
Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1989, and the Dangerous Substances
Regulations 1990). At the end of any Airspan products life cycle, the customer should
consult with Airspan to ensure that the product is disposed of in conformance with the
relevant regulatory requirements
2. CAUTION: any modifications to this device not expressly authorised by the
manufacturer could void the user's authority to operate this device.

European Directive 1999/519/EC


European Directive 1999/519/EC details basic restrictions and reference levels on human
exposure to electromagnetic fields as advised by the ICNIRP. The directive states that
adherence to these recommended restrictions and reference levels should provide a high
level of protection as regards the established health effects that may result from
exposure to such fields.
Standards EN50383 and EN50385 are the applicable harmonised standards for EM fields
generated by fixed wireless equipment.
All Airspan WiMAX antennas operating in the frequency range 3.4 to 3.7 GHz comply
with the ICNIRP exposure guidelines at a separation distance of 0.95m from the Antenna
Unit.
All Airspan Communications WiMAX antennas operating in the frequency range 4.9 to 5.0
GHz comply with the ICNIRP exposure guidelines at a separation distance of 0.34m from
the Antenna Unit.
The safe distance from a non-approved antenna of length D and Sector Angle is the
higher of the two values calculated using the formula:
Safe distance,

Where S is the maximum permitted flux density of 10 W/m^2 and P is the maximum
transmit power of the SCRT in watts.

Shelf Overview

ATCA Chassis
The 14-slot ATCA chassis conforming to the PICMG 3.0 specification is detailed below. The
chassis has a dual star backplane with up to two Shelf Managers, fans, fan controllers, filters
and power conditioning modules.

Shelf Manager
The 14-slot chassis has bussed IPMBs and is designed to work with Shelf Managers that are
located in the dedicated Shelf Manager slots. The Shelf Manager also contains the Fan Controller
for the three pluggable fan trays. If only one Shelf Manager is installed is should be installed in
the upper slot.

Fan Trays
Three modular fan trays can easily be removed after removing the fan tray cover at the front of
the shelf. The display module at the front of the fan tray provides a blue hot-swap LED, amber
and red alarm LEDs and a green fan-try-good LED as well as a hot swap push button.

Shelf Alarm Panel


Note: This functionality is not currently supported within the HiperMAX system.

Power Distribution
There are two pluggable PEMs (Power Entry Modules). Each PEM provides power terminals for a
25A power feed ( -48V and VRTN). Internally to the PEM these are split into four separate fused
feeds, each of these four feeds is protected by two 30A fuses. The minimum input voltage is -
40.5VDC and the maximum is -57.0VDC.

Blades
Two blades are currently available. SDR Blade for the software defined radio and Switch for the
Ethernet Switch.

4
Physical Installation - HiperMAX

ESD Protection
The ESD Wrist Strap terminal is located on the upper front side of the shelf, and must be used
prior to working on any part or electronic component.

Installation Checks
Before inserting any blades, turn on the -48V and measure the voltage on the PEMs. Note when
the chassis are powered the fans go to full speed and then slow down once the Shelf Manager
control loop kicks in. If the -48V is connected the wrong way the chassis will not power up.

Power
Hazardous voltage!
Before working ensure that the power is removed from the power
connection cables. When the system is powered on, do NOT touch
the power terminals.

48 Volt Breakers and Distribution


DC Feeds should be provided as follows:
The Shelf, SCRTs and GPS can be powered using a regular telecommunication power supply of -
48VDC with a VDC return. The specified voltage range is from -40.5 VDC to -57.0 VDC.

ATCA Shelves
2 supply feeds per shelf. Each supply should be fed from a separate breaker.
GPS
2 supply feeds per shelf. Each supply should be fed from a separate breaker.
SCRT
1 supply feed per SCRT

DC Feeds to PEM Modules


Warning!
14 slot Chassis: Although there are fuses in the power
entry circuit of the Shelf, the power lines have to be
protected on rack level with 80A breakers.
5 slot Chassis: Although there are fuses in the power
entry circuit of the Shelf, the power lines have to be
protected on rack level with 30A breakers.

1. Run 16mm2 blue and black DC supply and return cables from the 48 volt breakers to
the PEM modules and terminate on lugs.
2. Protect exposed part with a rubber sleeve as shown below. Label as required.

3. Before applying power to PEM fit the transparent protective cover over the terminals.

4. Before inserting any blades, turn on the -48V and measure the voltage on the PEMs. If
the -48V is connected the wrong way the chassis will not power up.

Fibre Cables and Cable Management

Fibre Cabling
Fibre Termination Shelf
The SDR blade is connected by fibre optic cable to the SCRT. The SDR blade has a SFP fibre
optic transceiver with a duplex LC connector. The LC connector is not rated for outdoor use so
there is a transition bulkhead to LC adaptor. This is mounted within the ATCA Rack enclosure
below the GPS unit. An IP68 connector plugs into the bulkhead and runs outdoors to the
antenna where the second IP68 connector connects to the antenna.

Cable Installation
General Rules for Fibre Cabling
Outdoor cables
1. Keep the protective cap on the ODC connector until it is to be connected.

ODC Connector
2. Once the protective cap is removed take care not to contaminate the connector with
dust, sand, liquid etc.
3. Do not exceed the bend radius of the cable (25mm) at any time during installation,
storage or in use.
4. Do not tie wrap the cable tightly use the recommended tie wraps (velcro) for patch
cables and Milli-Tie cable ties for cable from fibre termination shelf to the SCRT.
Patch Cables
Note: When running cables (Ethernet; OBSAI; GPS Control; and SMA cables for GPS
1PPS & 10MHz) from the front of all blades (SDR and/or Switch), Shelf Manager and SAP
it is important that the cables run directly up and down the length of the card and not
across the face of other cards. This is important in order to ensure that individual blades
can be inserted and removed without interfering with the cabling to other blades in the
shelf. When running any cable along the ATCA shelf cable management tray it is
important to leave enough slack in the cable to allow the raising and lowering of the cable
management tray in order to allow access to the fan modules and air filter tray.

1. Keep the protective cap on the LC connectors until they are connected.
2. Once the protective cap is removed take care not to contaminate the connector with
dust, sand, liquid etc.
3. Do not exceed the bend radius of the cable (60mm) at any time during installation,
storage or in use.

21
605-0000-834 HiperMAX Physical Installation - ATCA Rev B

4. Do not tie wrap the cable tightly use the Velcro ties such as RS Stock Codes 333-9777
(5m reel) or 333-9648 (individual ties) .
5. When inserting the LC connectors to the SFP modules there should be an audible click.
Then pull gently to ensure it is connected correctly.
Fibre Cabling
1. Secure the cable termination shelf in the ATCA rack below the GPS using four screws
and nylon cup washers.
2. Attach the bulkhead interface by passing through the hole from the rear and securing
with the large hexagonal nut.
3. Run the ODC Fibre cable from the SCRT to the fibre termination shelf.
4. Secure the cable using Milli-Tie cable ties. (See Cable Ties)
5. Excess cable should be coiled to prevent damage. Do not exceed the bend radius of the
cable (25mm).
6. Terminate the fibre cable at the SCRT.
7. Terminate the fibre cable at the rear of the bulkhead interface on the cable terminating
shelf. Label with SCRT Id.
8. Run a patch cable from the cable termination shelf to the SDR blade. Support the cable
using the cable tray (see Cable Tray).
9. Loop excess cable in the clips at the side of the rack. Avoid sharp bends in the fibre
(60mm bend radius).
10. The fibre should secured and be attached to the cable tray using velcro ties.

22
Physical Installation - HiperMAX

Cable Ties
Outdoor Cables
Airspan recommends that cables should be secured with Milli-Tie cables as these are designed to
prevent over-tightening of cable ties. Over-tightening of cable ties may causes damage and
degrade system performance.
The Milli-Tie can be used to secure cables in the same manner as normally used for nylon
straps. The steps below show the basic use of the product.
A Single Basic Wrap

Place the Mille-Tie around the target, and thread the tongue through the last LARGE
aperture in the rearmost cell.

Pull or slide the Mille-Tie onto the target. Note that the Mille-Tie stretches to cushion the
installation.

Release the tension when snug, then cut and remove any excess strip. Always cut through
the square sections, not the wider cells.

23
605-0000-834 HiperMAX Physical Installation - ATCA Rev B

Mille-Tie is very efficient, and simply gets a little shorter after each use. The remaining strip
can be kept and used again and again.

Just keep repeating the same basic fitting procedure until the whole Mille-Tie is used up.

Danger of electrostatic discharge! Static electricity can harm delicate
components inside the shelf. An ESD wrist strap must be worn before
exchanging any part or electric component! The ESD wrist strap terminal (4
mm banana jack) is located at the upper front side of the shelf.

Note: For instructions on board insertion removal and replacement see Board
Insertion/Removal/Replacement
The SDR blade is designed to plug into an ATCA chassis. The SDRs architecture is based on
configurable elements to allow for changes in specification i.e. software defined radio.
The SDR blade transports data over a fibre optic connection to the transceiver using OBSAI RP3-

Install Ethernet Switch


Danger of electrostatic discharge! Static electricity can harm delicate
components inside the Shelf. An ESD wrist strap must be worn before
exchanging any part or electric component! The ESD Wrist Strap Terminal (4
mm banana jack) is located at the upper front side of the Shelf.

Note The ATCA Ethernet switch from Airspan is optional and is normally only supported by in
the 14 slot ATCA shelf. 5 slot systems will be supplied with an external rack mount Ethernet
VLAN switch with connections to the SDR cards via 100baseT front panel ports.
The SDR blade has two 100BaseT RJ-45 connectors on the front panel, the Ethernet signals are
also routed over the backplane to the two centre slots of the ATCA shelf. This allows Ethernet to
be passed to an external switch or to the ATCA based Ethernet switch.

Install ATCA Ethernet switch


This describes the installation of the Airspan ATCA Ethernet Switch. The Ethernet switch card is
placed in physical slot 7 (logical slot 1) of 14 slot chassis.

Connection to the network infrastructure is via ports 17-22 on the front panel using a suitable
patch cable. The port supports 1Gbit Ethernet operation for which at least a CAT5e cable is
required.
Using a Network cable connect the designated port on the front of the switch blade to the
network.

Board Insertion
1. To insert the blades engage the hooks on both handles, and rotate both handles
simultaneously towards the face of the blade to force the blade back into the chassis.

2. Secure blade by tightening screws top and bottom.

3. Pinch the spring lever to raise the finger and push hot swap handle home through the
faceplate. Release the spring lever to lower and retain the handle. Failure to do this will erode
the plastic and permit the handle to release easily.

Board Removal / Hot Swapping


Note: GPS 10M and 1Hz connections. The 10M and 1Hz should not be removed from a live
system. If the primary or secondary GPS SDRs are to be removed the hot swap handle on the
SDR should be activated, once the blue light is on (not flashing) the GPS cables can be
removed.
1. When a card is to be replaced, release the hot swap handle by rotating the upper part of the
handle to the position shown in Figure 2 below.

Figure 1: Hot Swap Handle: Normal

Figure 2: Hot Swap Handle: Released (Hot Swap Initiated)


2. The H/S blue light flashes when it stops flashing and is permanently on the board can be
removed by unscrewing the top and bottom screws and rotating both upper and lower handles
forward to disengage card.

Overview

For TDD and smart antenna operation the base stations need to be locked to GPS timing. The
ATCA shelf has a synchronisation clock interface that is connected to all 14 blades in the Shelf.
The GPS reference is generated by the GPS shelf. Each SDR blade locks onto the 10MHz signal
to align with the GPS clock. The GPS module outputs 10MHz(10M) and 1pps (1Hz) signals.
The SDR blades are able to operate in stand alone mode and have a GPS input on the front
panel. In order to allow clock redundancy, the GPS signals are fed to two blades. The SDRs that
have GPS connected are selected via Netspan one is selected as the master the other as
standby. The master SDR blade drives the 10MHz GPS clock signal onto the backplane signal
CLK3A. The standby blade drives the GPS clock onto CLK3B. Each SDR card in the system
monitors CLK3A and CLK3B. One of these is selected to drive the boards PLL and derive the
clocks. If one of the SDR boards fail or the GPS is unplugged or the blade is removed, the SDR
blades will then switch to the other clock source. If both CLK3A and CLK3B fail then the PLLs
free run.

Installation

The GPS shelf is currently available as a standard 2u 19inch shelf. It is usual to place the GPS
receiver at the top of the rack.

Installation Steps
Note: When running cables (Ethernet; OBSAI; GPS Control; and SMA cables for GPS
1PPS & 10MHz) from the front of all blades (SDR and/or Switch), Shelf Manager and SAP
it is important that the cables run directly up and down the length of the card and not
across the face of other cards. This is important in order to ensure that individual blades
can be inserted and removed without interfering with the cabling to other blades in the
shelf. When running any cable along the ATCA shelf cable management tray it is
important to leave enough slack in the cable to allow the raising and lowering of the cable
management tray in order to allow access to the fan modules and air filter tray.
Secure the shelf in the rack using screws into the cage nuts (Screws and nuts not
provided by Airspan.)
