Introduction

This document describes the new and innovative FibeAir RFU-C.

RFU-C is a state-of-the-art Radio Frequency Unit which is fully software configurable and supports a broad range of capacities and interfaces.

The RFU supports low to high capacities for traditional voice and Ethernet services, as well as SDH/SONET or hybrid Ethernet and TDM interfaces.

This innovative platform uses an “on-the-fly” upgrade method, whereby network operators only buy capacity as needed, benefiting from savings on initial investments and OPEX.

Traffic capacity throughput and spectral efficiency are optimized with the desired channel bandwidth. For maximum user choice flexibility, channel bandwidths can be selected together with a range of modulations of from QPSK to 256 QAM.

High spectral efficiency is ensured using the same bandwidth for double the capacity, via two carriers, with vertical and horizontal polarizations. This feature is implemented by a built-in XPIC mechanism.

RFU-C works together with two types of indoor units. For SDH/SONET, the RFU works with the FibeAir 1500R indoor unit. For Ethernet and PDH traffic, RFU-C works with the FibeAir IP-10 indoor unit. Together, FibeAir RFU-C and FibeAir 1500R/IP-10 IDUs provide a powerful, reliable, and comprehensive solution for a variety of wireless network scenarios and requirements.

RFU-C operating in co-channel dual polarization (CCDP) mode, using the cross polarization interference canceller (XPIC) algorithm, two carriers signals can be transmitted over a single channel, using vertical and horizontal polarization. This enables double capacity in the same spectrum bandwidth.

Product Overview

Ceragon’s FibeAir RFU-C is based on Ceragon’s latest RFU technology.

As part of the FibeAir family, RFU-C supports multiple capacities, frequencies, modulation schemes, and configurations for various network requirements.

RFU-C operates in the frequency range of 6-38 GHz, and supports capacities of 10 Mbps to 500 Mbps, for PDH, Ethernet, and SDH/SONET traffic.

The capacity can easily be doubled using a Cross Polarization Interference Canceller (XPIC) algorithm. For example, using XPIC, two STM-1/OC-3 signals can be transmitted over a single 28 MHz channel, with both vertical and horizontal polarization. This enables double capacity in the same spectrum bandwidth.

Direct Mount for Nokia FlexiHopper Antennas

For capacity upgrade from PDH to SDH, or from PDH to Ethernet, RFU-C can easily replace Nokia FlexiHopper radios using the same antennas and mounting devices.

RFU-C can be directly mounted on a Nokia FlexiHopper 6-38 GHz, 1-6 ft antenna, in 1+0 and 1+1 configurations. An adapter is used for the direct mount, as shown in the following illustration.
