Baseband 5216/5212 Handling

BasebandR503:
 Increased connectivity for new & existing radio units in large radio system
configurations
 CPRI multiplexing and de-multiplexing

Baseband T503 & T605:


 Baseband unit for advanced routing functionality & traffic aggregation
 Flexible synchronization support & RAN Grand Master for synchronization of
small cells

From a capacity perspective for instance the board can handle 8000 connected
users and 24 cells can be connected to it. It can handle 960 MHz of antenna
bandwidth. The board supports Massively-parallel processing which is world
leading multi-core architecture of processor cores.

It is Multi-standard capable and can be programmed via software to support LTE,


WCDMA or GSM. Different radio standards can run simultaneously on the same
board which is called mixed mode.

Both LTE FDD and TDD can be run at the same time together with one of the
other major radio standards.

In a baseband main unit it is possible to mix and match Baseband 5212, Baseband
5216, BasebandR503 and Baseband T503 to provide the optimal capacity and
configuration of GSM, WCDMA or LTE and combinations thereof, there is one
common O&M for handling all standards Baseband 5216 .

Introduction to Baseband

Baseband 5216 brings together LTE FDD & TDD, WCDMA and GSM onto the
same hardware and software architecture, providing operators with unparalleled
flexibility and scalability. Baseband 5216 is part of the Ericsson Radio System
and provides the baseband processing resources for the encoding and decoding of
the uplink and downlink radio signals, the radio control processing, the radio
network synchronization, the IP interface and the O&M interface for the Ericsson
Radio System.

From a capacity perspective for instance one board can handle 8000 connected
users and 24 cells can be connected to it. It can handle 960 MHz of antenna
bandwidth. So if you have a 20 MHz LTE carrier and have 2x2 MIMO (2 MIMO
streams) for 3 sector you would consume 20 x 2 x 3 MHz is 120 MHz antenna
bandwidth capacity leaving with 840 MHz’s. The board supports Massively-
parallel processing which is world leading multi-core architecture of processor
cores. There is one common O&M for handling all standards

1.3.5 High capacity radio system site


The baseband has a central functional role in the Ericsson Radio System. The
Baseband is divided into 3 different product groups namely Baseband X,
Baseband RX and Baseband TX where the X is a number series.

The Baseband has several CPRI ports for connection towards the Radio units.
The Baseband can be located on the same site as the Radios or on a more
centralized location in the network connected to Radios on other sites via a so-
called fronthaul network.

The Baseband RX can be used towards the radio side in case the operator wants
to increase connectivity for radio units that a single Baseband can handle, for
CPRI multiplexing and de-multiplexing and for media conversion electrical to
optical and vice versa. Baseband R is the new name for the unit that used to be
called XMU.

The Baseband is connected to the core network via a backhaul network that can
be via fixed lines (copper or fiber) or microwave connections. The Baseband has
several ports for the backhaul connection. The Baseband TX can be used towards
the backhaul side in case the operator’s want advanced routing & flexible
synchronization solutions when Multi-standard is used at the site. Baseband T is
the new name for the unit that used to be called TCU.

Ericsson Radio System gives operators unparalleled flexibility. With LTE FDD
& TDD, WCDMA and GSM on one hardware & software architecture, operators
can deploy once and have full flexibility on to adapt to market demands as the
technology shifts, as well as supporting TDD-FDD convergence.

With LTE FDD & TDD, WCDMA and GSM on one architecture, operators can
better manage the complexities of the network with one O&M system for all
standards. Combined with Ericsson Network Manager’s new data centric
architecture, this provides operators with to a broader range of information and
better & smarter management functions.

1.3.7 Hardware Architecture


The hardware (HW) architecture of a Site is summarized and is structured in
three different parts as described below.

1.3.7.1 MPE

The Mechanics, Power and Environment (MPE) part of an RBS 6000 includes
the cabinet, power distribution units, climate units and other site solution
equipment. The MPE is what differs the most when various Enclosure versions
are compared.

The Baseband Unit, DU, holds the functions that are listed in Figure 1-5. All
traffic (User Plane, Control Plane, OaM, NTP synchronization) that arrives over
the S1, X2 or Mul interface is terminated in the DU. User traffic is sent to the
Baseband circuits and control-plane traffic is terminated on a local processor in
the unit.
