Description

Installing Complex Mobile Networks

The worldwide spread of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets using SNS, video streaming, etc., is causing an explosive increase in data traffic volumes. Mobile network base stations are configured using various methods, but the antenna radio section uses an optical fiber to connect the BBU an RRH passing via a general interface called the CPRI/OBSAI. The need for optical fiber fault finding and transport quality tests increases as the Mobile network environment becomes more advanced. Installing the 10G Multirate Module MU100010A and OTDR Module MU100020A/21A/22A in the Network Master Pro MT1000A supports all-in-one optical fiber fault finding and transport quality tests.
Using the MU100020A/21A/22A, scratched or dirty connectors at fiber cable connections can be detected as fault locations from the excessive optical reflections to support fault finding and troubleshooting of Mobile optical networks. Additionally, work efficiency is greatly improved using the Fiber Visualizer function supporting Easy-to-Use/Easy-to-Report testing.

OTDR Module Applications

Generally, depending on the optical fiber measurement environment, OTDR measurements require multiple settings such as distance range, pulse width, measurement time, etc., making work difficult for technicians who do not generally use an OTDR. When performing Pass/Fail evaluation of an optical circuit for a report, a simple intuitive GUI is key to improving work efficiency.
The MU100020A/MU100021A/MU100022A emphasizes easy-to-understand operability using three application measurement modes: OTDR Measurement, FTTA Measurement, and OLTS Measurement.

otdr  Standard OTDR Measurements

The OTDR measurement results are displayed as a trace showing the optical fiber length, losses and size of reflections, as well as an easy-to-view summary of the analysis results on the Fiber Visualizer screen.

  • Event icons showing characteristics of each connector, splice, and far end
  • Pass/Fail evaluations based on user-settable threshold values

The user can set any threshold value for each event. If the Pass/Fail evaluation settings prescribed in the engineering manual are set beforehand, the measured optical fiber loss status can be easily distinguished visually at the same time as measurement ends.

ftta  FTTA Measurements

Comparatively short optical fibers of around several hundred meters in length are usually installed at the Mobile fronthaul FTTA. In this type of measurement environment, measurements made by different operators under different conditions commonly have inconsistency problems at later data processing.
At FTTA measurement, the optical fiber installation measurement conditions are fixed previously, so measurements are always made under the same conditions whoever is performing measurement.
Like the OTDR measurement function, each measurement result can be analyzed at the Trace and Fiber Visualizer screens.

construction  Construction Measurement

The Construction mode measurement greatly simplifies through its innovative wizard. In particular, this is very effective function for user when multi-fibers construction is the task at hand. The ability to auto name and save the traces using a wizard, this allows the ability to adjust naming based on test direction, wavelength and fiber number. This minimizes the required user input especially on large fiber count cables which require testing on multiple wavelengths. Ensures no lost data and minimizes required input from the onsite engineers.

olts  OLTS Measurements

At measurement of the optical Physical layer, the first basic measurement is loss measurement using a light source and power meter. With a built-in light source and power meter as standard, the MU100020A/MU100021A/MU100022A can be used as an optical loss test set (OLTS). In addition, measurement results can be managed at the Loss Table for Pass/Fail evaluation of individual data based on set threshold values.

Test Challenges for CPRI cell sites implementing CPRI technology

Moving the radio to the tower top and hosting the BBU at the base of the tower or in remote hotels increases network flexibility and performance as well as reducing costs. The increased spectral densification that has been implemented with the roll out of LTE networks as well as overall spectral congestion has made these networks vulnerable to interference and intermodulation. This network degradation may first show up when monitoring KPIs. Especially for dropped calls and reduced data throughput.

MU100040A CPRI RF module displays the LTE spectrum of the uplink or downlink of Alcatel Lucent/Nokia, Ericsson and Huawei radios.

By monitoring the LTE uplink spectrum on the CPRI uplink, it is possible to monitor for interferers from ground level. The MU100040A CPRI RF module for the MT1000A Network Master Pro provides the ideal instrument for this application.

CPRI RF Module Applications

  • Identifying the Presence of interferes on CPRI uplink signals
  • Validating the integrity of the CPRI link between BBU and RRH

The Migration to CPRI technology in cellular networks

The architecture of cellular networks is evolving rapidly. Demand for greater data throughput from the network and the need to reduce operating costs has led to the implementation of networks that separate the radio from the baseband units.

By moving away from traditional macro cell sites in which ground based radios are connected to tower mounted antennas by long RF cable runs, to using a Remote Radio Head (RRH) at the tower top connected to a BaseBand Unit (BBU) at ground level, the deployment of the cell site can be much more flexible.

BBUs can be located locally at the host cell site or grouped together at BBU hotels up to 25 km from the RRH. This “Hotelling” of BBUs allows radio resources to be allocated dynamically, greatly increasing network efficiency. The interface between the BBU and the RRH is typically a fiber optic cable supporting the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) communication standard. The CPRI standard delivers a high speed serial interface with low latency required for LTE network roll out.

Separating the RRH from the BBU has the benefit of reducing the power consumption in the cell site equipment room and reducing the demands on air conditioning, greatly reducing operational expenditure. It also potentially reduces or even eliminates the need for long RF cable runs that can result in significant radio signal losses.

Testing the CPRI link between the BBU and RRH introduces new challenges for the field technician installing and maintaining the network. As the radio may now be located at the top of a tower, access to RF measurements could require the use of a certified tower climbing crew. However, by tapping into the CPRI link, RF measurements can be made from ground level without the need for any tower climb.

Mobile Fronthaul
Since optical connector reflections have a major impact on data quality when using CPRI interfaces, in addition to measuring optical fiber return loss, the BER must be measured using actual CPRI data and the CPRI link must be verified. In addition, the IQ data during CPRI communications is confirmed as necessary.

Mobile Backhaul
Optical connector reflections have a major impact on data quality of GbE and 10GbE networks. Consequently, in addition to verifying optical fiber return loss and Ethernet circuit quality using BER measurements, IEEE1588v2 also specifies the need for time synchronization tests.

By supporting all these tests, the all-in-one MT1000A increases work efficiency and cuts installation testing costs.
