Overview
Goal of the Presentation:
This presentation attempts to layout the standard RRU and BBU configurations for the markets. Each configuration is a per sector view.

The choice of RRU & BBU configurations depends on:


The required number of 1900 MHz Carriers (CDMA + EVDO) Software release 2.0 timeline

Diplexers are to be avoided Exceptions when Two 1900 MHz RRUs required and only 1 antenna possible (example Flag Pole) If Towers can not support RRUs, then Ground Based alternative can be considered

CICA-D cards
Can only do 1 EVDO carrier And, can do 1 Voice carrier (either 800 or 1900 mHz)

CICA A cards
Can do 2 Voice Carriers (either carrier can be 1900 MHz or you can change one to 800 MHz) 1 BBU can support 3 traffic cards (or 6 carriers) But, 4 EVDOs will trigger 2nd BBU 1 RRU can handle 1 CDMA BBU + 1 LTE BBU a second CDMA BBU would require a 2nd RRU Attached is the formulas to calculate The correct number of CICA-A & CICA-D cards
