This master repeater is intended to be used to convert signals from RF to optical and supply the remote optical slave repeaters. Typical applications are long tunnel sections, in-building systems, large area outdoor coverage and long distance feed areas where the cost of the traditional RF cable is more expensive than the economical optical fiber solutions. The standard 19” cabinet has up to 8 optical converters each with FC/APC optical female connectors. All 8 downlink gain values can be set individually.
The broadcast and M&C signals are transmitted on the same optical cable. A single physical connection is used for the remote supervision and alarm handling functions, which results in a reliable communication link. The master unit can be monitored and controlled via its Ethernet connector using SNMP protocol or via the optional 2G/4G modem. All connected slave units can be remotely supervised through the optical connection.
