MRFUd Description 1 Introduction

1 Introduction

The MRFUd can be used in a BTS3900 (Ver.C)/BTS3900 (Ver.D), BTS3900L


(Ver.C)/BTS3900L (Ver.D), BTS3900A (Ver.C)/BTS3900A (Ver.D), or BTS3900AL (Ver.A)
cabinet. The MRFUd performs modulation, demodulation, data processing, and combination
and division of baseband signals and RF signals. With the Software Defined Radio (SDR)
technology, the MRFUd can work either in GU or GL dual-mode through software
configuration modification.
MRFUd has a dual-transmitter and dual-receiver structure, which supports higher output
power and carrier capacity.

MRFUd Description 2 Technical Specifications

 The receiver sensitivity of GSM, as recommended in 3GPP TS 51.021, is measured in the central
band (80% of the entire operating band, excluding the edge band) at the antenna connector on the
condition that the channel rate is 13 kbit/s and the Bit Error Rate (BER) is not higher than 2%.
 The receiver sensitivity of UMTS, as recommended in 3GPP TS 25.104, is measured in the entire
operating band at the antenna connector on the condition that the channel rate is 12.2 kbit/s and the
BER is not higher than 0.001.
 The receiver sensitivity of LTE is measured, as recommended in 3GPP TS 36.104, under a 5 MHz
channel bandwidth based on the FRC A1-3 in Annex A.1 (QPSK, R = 1/3, 25 RBs) standard.

2.4 Typical Output Power


 MRFUd modules operating in GSM mode and in the 900 or 1800 MHz frequency band comply with
the standard EN 301 502 V9.2.1.
 MRFUd modules operating in UMTS, LTE, or Multi-Standard Radio (MSR) mode and in 900 or
1800 MHz frequency band comply with the standard ETSI EN 301 908 V5.2.1 and 3GPP TS 37.104.
 For the MRFUd working in GSM mode: when the S1 or S2 configuration is applied, the maximum
output power of each carrier on the MRFUd is 80 W. If the output power of 60 W or 80 W is
required, the related license must be obtained.
 The output power is 1 dB lesser than the standard power when the MRFUd is located at a height of
3500 m to 4500 m; and is 2 dB lesser than the standard power when the MRFUd is located at a
height of 4500 m to 6000 m.
 Factors such as the site-to-site distance, frequency-reuse factor, power control algorithm, and traffic
model affect the gain achieved by dynamic power allocation. Therefore, in most cases, the network
planning can be based on the power specification achieved by dynamic power allocation.
 In power sharing mode, the power control and DTX functions must be enabled. In GBSS8.1, the
dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and
GBFD-117501 Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the
dynamic power sharing feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic
power sharing feature currently cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference
Based Channel Allocation), GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and
GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
 Power sharing assumes a random distribution of UEs in the cell.
 The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power
possible while ensuring the network performance.

Table 2-5, Table 2-6, Table 2-7, and Table 2-8 list the typical output power of the MRFUd.

2.5 Power Consumption


 The typical power consumption and the maximum power consumption are measured when the base
station works at a temperature of 25°C.
 The typical power consumption for GSM is reached when the base station works with 30% load.
The maximum power consumption for GSM is reached when the base station works with 100%
load.
 The typical power consumption for UMTS is reached when the base station works with 40% load.
The maximum power consumption for UMTS is reached when the base station works with 100%
load.
 The typical power consumption for LTE is reached when the base station works with 50% load. The
maximum power consumption for LTE is reached when the base station works with 100% load.
 LTE power consumption is calculated based on the 2 x 2 MIMO configuration. Two MRFUs are
configured in each sector.
 This section describes the power consumption of an entire base station. Board configurations in a
BBU are as follows:
- GSM: one GTMU
- UMTS: one UMPTb1 and one WBBPf3 in 3x1 and 3x2 scenarios
- LTE FDD: one UMPTb1 and one LBBPd1 when one carrier is configured
