Remote Radio Head (RRH) protection - What matters?

November 14, 2011

Communication sites have been evolving over the years to respond to the ever-increasing demand for improved coverage and more capacity. At one point in time, all electronics equipment was safely enclosed inside a building with only the antennas and RF coax, as well as incoming power and data lines exposed. To overcome the loss in signal strength caused by the losses in the RF coax lines, Tower Mounted Amplifiers (TMAs) and Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs) were introduced. Moving them closer to the antennas provided additional coverage and improved capacity. 


Ethernet Protection

November 14, 2011

As internet connectivity is brought to platforms such as appliances, vehicles, and manufacturing floors the wired Ethernet infrastructure that supports these devices will be deployed in an increasing variety of locations.  The Ethernet standard, which has largely replaced low speed twisted pair and phone lines, was conceived as a scholastic project and is vulnerable to environmental and systemic disruptions if the proper precautions are not taken.

Mama mia, I agree with Luigi – this is quite the spaghetti salad! Scarce time resources probably prompted this quick and dirty set up job, but sorting through this cable mess when troubleshooting or service is needed will certainly cost valuable time and some person’s sanity. Some form of cable management could further reduce the mechanical stress on the RJ45 jacks, while shorter cables could reduce the risk for signal degradation and possible crosstalk between channels.
