Users Guide

1 Overview
The CSI ClearLink™ Universal DAS Interface Tray (UDIT™) provides Radio Frequency (RF) conditioning
between a Base Transceiver Station (BTS) and a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) for a single Wireless
Service Provider (WSP) or neutral host multi WSP/operator systems. When interfacing with indoor DAS
equipment, the Downlink (DL) and Uplink (UL) characteristics of a DAS system is very different than an outdoor
Tower Mounted Amplifiers (TMA)/Antenna.
The UDIT simplifies connectivity, reduces clutter and occupies up to 60% less space compared to passive
equivalent solutions, while providing high power BTS conditioning, Low Passive Intermodulation (PIM), active
noise detection, signal splitting/combining, active and remote power management, dynamic power control,
alarming and real-time monitoring.
Each plug and play UDIT POI module is automatically detected by the system and is hot swappable.
Attenuation can be applied to the UL signal and to the DL signal.
The system is modular, flexible, scalable and DAS OEM neutral, providing a single BTS interface that can be
used across one or more operators, technologies and sectors. The single platform simplifies training,
deployment and commissioning. Signals from multiple Wireless Service Providers (WSPs) using different
technologies can be balanced to ensure power is properly allocated and maintained across them.
Traditional BTS to DAS interfaces offer fixed attenuation, duplexing, splitting and combining using passive
components which occupy significant rack space and complex cabling especially in a neutral host system.
These systems are likely left unmonitored, are difficult to scale, reconfigure or upgrade. The ClearLink UDIT
solves these issues and more.
The ClearLink UDIT can be collocated with a DAS headend plus provides multiple functions as covered in this
users guide.

1.1 Theory of Operations


The functionalities stated in the following sections are achievable per an RF chain. Each RF chain acts
independently of any other RF chain.

1.1.1 Downlink Power Management


The UDIT ensures that the composite Downlink RF power at the output of the UDIT stays below a certain value,
programmed either locally or remotely, for every RF chain. When using this feature, operators can be certain
that the system shared resources will never be inequitably used by other operators.
The Downlink Power Management is used to ensure that the power incident on the DAS equipment does not
exceed the ratings for the equipment, which is usually designed for low power input. Flexibility in terms of
incident downlink power and remote monitoring allows the user to remotely monitor the status of the DAS
service plus remotely make any necessary power level changes.
 The UDIT allows the input power to be as high as 100 W (+50 dBm) for each Point of Interface (POI).
 The UDIT measures and reports input Downlink levels from the base station continuously.
 The UDIT measures and reports output Downlink levels to the DAS headend.
 Alarm threshold levels can be set either locally or remotely based on maximum downlink power levels.
 When the input power rises such that the output power level will exceed the clamp down level set by
the user, the UDIT will “clamp down” on the output power making it the same value as the threshold
setting.
 Alarms generated in the UDIT system can be remotely monitored through Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP) or Graphical User Interface (GUI). Alarms are sent to the configured
trap destination as SNMP traps. LEDs on the front of the UDIT will also indicated alarm conditions on
the system.

CSI ClearLink™ UDIT™
Users Guide

 The value set for maximum power at the output of the device is not exceeded even when an alarm is
generated.
 The UDIT allows Downlink attenuation (variable 0 to 31 dB) to be set locally or remotely, regardless
of the input level or output setting.
 Once deployed the UDIT can be configured either locally or remotely.

1.1.2 Uplink Signal Management


On the Uplink path the UDIT provides attenuation for the Uplink signal, programmed either locally or remotely,
for every RF chain.
 The user can program attenuation of up to 35 dB (input to output on top of the insertion loss).
 The user can select and configure up to 3 Sub-Bands and 5 slices per Sub-Band (15 slices in total) for
each POI.
 The user can specify for each POI, 15 frequency points to measure the power within the Uplink band
of interest as shown in Figure 1-1. Power measurement is performed in 200 kHz slices.
 Power measurements can be made for each slice.
 Each slice is 200 kHz in bandwidth. The 200 KHz slices can be contiguous or spread out.
 The user can program the maximum Threshold Noise Input Power per slice. When the maximum noise
level threshold is exceeded, an alarm will be issued.

1.2 Software Maintenance and Monitoring Overview


The UDIT control software continuously controls and monitors all of the operations of the system. The software
communicates with each module and serves as a medium for monitoring and controlling the system. The
UDIT software, through alarm events, serves as an interface to the user indicating any abnormalities in the
UDIT. The UDIT maintains a log of all of the alarm events that occur in the system. It also maintains a log of
the last seven (7) days of the DL and UL power measurements for all of the detected modules in the system.
The UDIT software can also auto detect and auto configure the plugged in POI modules at any time.
Remote device management is enabled through the software that serves to process all of the management
requests. The solution provides a common instrumentation across all interfaces via the Web and SNMP. A
unified (support V1, V2 and V3) SNMP based agent is supported to collect and manage device data on the
UDIT system.

 POI Name – The user can specify their own name for the module by entering a name in the POI Name
field using any alphanumeric characters and allowable special characters. The allowable character set
can be viewed by placing the mouse over this text box. The POI Name is specified from the System
Summary Page.
 Attenuation (in dB) – The user can program Uplink Attenuation.
o The user can program Uplink Attenuation of up to 35 dB. The user can set the Attenuation
value by entering a number between 0 to 35 in the Attenuation field or using the slider to the
right of the field. This will set this value of Attenuation to the Uplink of this POI.
 Threshold Noise Input Power per Slice – The user can program the maximum Threshold Noise
Input Power per slice from -100 to -20 dBm. When the maximum noise level threshold is surpassed,
an alarm will be issued for this POI.
 Threshold Hysteresis (in dB) – The user can program the Threshold Hysteresis from 0 to 10 dB.
This is used to automatically clear the alarm conditions if the Uplink Input Noise level falls below the
set Threshold by this value for the defined Alarm Persistency Time (in seconds).

 Alarm Persistency Time (in seconds) – Is used for generating an alarm. The user can program the
Alarm Persistency Time from 10 to 30 seconds. The Uplink Threshold Noise Level alarms such as “UL
Input Power has exceeded the Threshold Noise Input Power by 1dB” will be reported to the user only
if the alarm condition is persistent in the system for this length of time. The alarms are visible on the
Home page and the Active Alarms page under System Events. The alarm will be sent as a SNMP trap
based on the Heart Beat interval.
The Operating Band (in MHz) displays the band name in which the POI is operating and the frequency band
range for which the module is calibrated as shown in Figure 6-5. This example shows POI_1, a PCS1900
module with calibrated Uplink frequencies of 1850.00 MHz to 1915.00 MHz.

6.1.1.1 POI Uplink Power Measurement Slice Mode


In Slice Mode the user can specify 15 frequencies within the Uplink band to make power measurements. One
to three Sub-Bands can be defined with up to 5 slices in each Sub-Band. Users can enable or disable the Sub-
Bands and configure the Sub-Band slice frequencies. For each Sub-Band Configuration (Sub-Band 1, Sub-
Band 2, and Sub-Band 3), there is one check box as shown in Figure 6-8. The Threshold Power per Slice is
used to trigger Alarms for active Sub-Bands (Checked = Sub-Band on).

NOTE
To set or change the frequencies the user must be logged in with change
privileges (admin). A user without change privileges will be able to view
measurements previously set for modules for which they have view privileges
and change how they are viewed; scan or slice mode.

Figure 6-8: POI Uplink Sub-Band Slice Configuration

Users should adhere to the following when configuring the Sub-Band slice frequencies:
 To modify the Sub-Band related parameters make sure the check box is selected. Otherwise the Sub-
Band will remain un-editable.
 Enter the Low Edge Frequency and High Edge Frequency for each Sub-Band you want to configure.
 The difference between the Low Edge Frequency and High Edge Frequency can be no more than 20
MHz and can be no less than 1.2 MHz.
 The frequency range of the defined and selected (box checked) Sub-Bands cannot overlap.
 Enter the Center Frequency in MHz for up to 5 slices for each Sub-Band.
 The Center Frequencies must be within the frequency range of the user defined Sub-Band, Low Edge
Frequency and High Edge Frequency.
 The slice values do not need to be entered in ascending or descending order, although this does make
the slice center frequencies easier to review.
 Click the Save Settings button after defining the Sub-Band range and individual frequencies to apply
the configuration to the Uplink POI.

 Maximum Input Power – The user can configure by entering a value:


o For High Power Mode the range is between 10 and 50 dBm if the jumper mode is configured
as High Power Mode on the POI module.
o For Low Power Mode the range is between 0 to 40 dBm if the jumper mode is configured as
Low Power Mode on the POI module.
 Clamp Down Level – The user can configure by entering a value:
o For High Power Mode the value should be between 10 and 50 dBm.
o For Low Power Mode the value should be between 0 to 40 dBm.
o The Clamp Down Level should be less than or equal to the Maximum Input level.
o The Clamp Down Level should be greater than or equal to the Minimum Power Level.
 Clamp Down Hysteresis – The user can configure (in dB) by entering a value between 0 and 10 in
the field or by using the sliding scale.
If the POI DL Input Power rises above the Clamp Down Level, the UDIT will trip an alarm and "clampdown",
attempting to maintain the DL Output Power to the configured Clamp Down Level limit. Current Attenuation
will be increased, in 1 dB steps, by a value equal to the difference between the current DL Input Power and
the configured Clamp Down Level (or until Current Attenuation reaches 31dB; whatever comes first).
When the system is in Clamp Down if a user reviews the DownLink page they may see the Current Attenuation
exceeds the user Configured Attenuation value (in dB).
Once the Input Power drops below the Clamp Down Level by the Clamp Down Hysteresis value the system will
come out of alarm.
The attenuation applied during Clamp Down will remain until a Reset of the affected POI has been performed.
If an invalid value is entered by the user for the POI Downlink configuration an error message screen will be
displayed similar to Figure 6-18.

Secondary Sub-Racks.
 When the system is defined with multiple Normal Sub-Racks, each Sub-Rack requires its own Ethernet
connection (and IP address) for maintenance and monitoring from the outside.
 For efficiency the UDITs can be defined as a Primary Sub-Rack with one or more Secondary Sub-Racks
connected to the Primary in a Daisy Chain. In a Daisy Chain configured system, the first Sub-Rack is
treated as the Primary and the remaining Sub-Racks are Secondaries.
 The Primary Sub-Rack is directly accessible from an outside network, all Secondaries are connected to
the Primary in a private network.
 The Primary is the only Sub-Rack requiring an Ethernet connection (using a single IP address) in a
Daisy Chain configuration.
 Any Secondary Sub-Rack connected in the Daisy Chain network is automatically detected by the
Primary Sub-Rack and appears in the topology network view once the user refreshes the page.
 To configure the Sub-Racks the user needs to connect directly to each Sub-Racks ETH2 port, login and
configure each as Normal, Primary or Secondary.

Figure 8-6 displays the Network Settings page for a Sub-Rack in Normal Mode. The current IP Address,
Broadcast Address, MAC Address, and Subnet Mask of the corresponding interface are displayed on this page.
Once the user has configured a static or dynamic IP address they will be asked for confirmation, after which
the user will be logged out in anticipation of a change in the system IP address dependent on the Local LAN
or Site LAN user.

Figure 8-6: System Network Normal Mode

When a Sub-Rack is configured in Primary Mode, the DHCP server always runs on the Local LAN connection
port (ETH 2). The User can either enable the DHCP Client or can configure the static IP address on the Site
LAN port (ETH 1). If the DHCP Server is enabled it will assign an IP Address to other Sub-Racks using the
defined DHCP Start IP Address and DHCP End IP Address. Figure 8-7 shows the Default range of IP
Addresses in Normal Mode the user can enable or disable the DHCP server on the Local Connection port (ETH
2).

8.2.1 Mac Address


A Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for
communications on the physical network segment. MAC addresses are used as a network address for most
IEEE 802 network technologies, including Ethernet. Logically, MAC addresses are used in the media access
control protocol sublayer of the OSI reference model.
Via SNMP the MAC addresses are obtained using the following OID’s:
Name: ifPhysAddress
Type: OBJECT-TYPE
OID: 1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.6
Full path:
iso(1).org(3).dod(6).internet(1).mgmt(2).mib-2(1).interfaces(2).ifTable(2).ifEntry(1).ifPhysAddress(6)
Module: RFC1213-MIB
Parent: ifEntry
Previous sibling: ifSpeed
Next sibling: ifAdminStatus
Numerical syntax: Octets
Base syntax: OCTET STRING
Composed syntax: PhysAddress
Status: mandatory
Max access: read-only
Description: The interface's address at the protocol layer immediately `below' the network layer in the protocol
stack. For interfaces which do not have such an address (e.g., a serial line), this object should contain an
octet string of zero length.

8.2.2 Network Settings Sub-Rack Normal Mode Configuration


The UDIT leaves the factory in Normal Mode. If the system is comprised of only one Sub-Rack the UDIT can
be left in Normal mode. If the UDIT was previously defined as Primary or Secondary it can be reconfigured to
Normal mode.
1. To configure a Sub-Rack to Normal Mode the user needs to connect to the Sub-Rack via the Local
LAN (ETH 2) port and login with owner/admin rights.
2. From the Home page select Settings>Network.
3. Set the Site LAN DHCP or Static LAN settings as shown in Figure 8-8 as required.

B.5 Alarm ID 5 POI DL Input Power Exceed DL Maximum Input Power


Alarm String: The DL Input Power has exceeded the Maximum Input Power by 1dB.
Alarm Severity: Critical Alarm.
Alarm Type: Environmental Alarm.
Cause: The downlink input power has exceeded the configured maximum by at least 1 dB. The POI has
automatically increased the downlink attenuator settings to keep the downlink output power within the
configured maximum.
Alarm Remedy: Check the configuration values for this POI and verify input levels with network operator. A
downlink channel has engaged the power limiting function. The output power of a channel has exceeded the
user defined threshold. Internal attenuation is increased to reduce the output power below the threshold. An
early indication that the input drive to a channel requires external attenuation or a reduction of BTS downlink
power.

Alarm String: There is an UL DC power failure.
Alarm Severity: Critical Alarm.
Alarm Type: Equipment Alarm
Cause: There is a fault in the POI, the back plane or the Control Module.
Alarm Remedy:
1) Try to Reset the POI module(s) through the GUI.
2) To verify if the power failure is with a POI module or is due to a connection problem, remove the module
and re-insert into the same slot. If the alarm is persistent for this module and there is an available
empty slot, try inserting this module in the empty slot. Be sure to verify module orientation to assure
connection with the backplane. If problem persists for only this module in the new slot, replace the
module.
3) If the module works in a new slot then there is an issue communicating with the previous slot. The
chassis will need to be replaced if the user needs to use the defective slot.
4) If the alarm exists for all POIs in a Sub-Rack replace the Control Module.
5) If when the control module has been replace and the alarms persist for all modules then the Chassis will
need to be replaced. The POIs and Control Module may be fine.
