Distributed Base Station DBS3900
This modular unit is designed to be installed far from other units — speeding site selection and network construction and saving investment in repeaters. It enables flexible coverage along railway lines, especially tunnels and bridges. It consists of a Baseband Unit (BBU) and a number of Remote Radio Units (RRUs), creating a single powerful cell over multiple sites.
The DBS3900 can support both GSM-R and eLTE. The GSM-R system can be upgraded to eLTE for Railway by software — there’s no need to replace hardware. Its low power consumption makes it possible to be powered by green energy — solar power, wind power, and biogas.
Base station provides cost-effective, powerful, and flexible communications for railways
- Simplified structure, consisting of only BBUs and RRUs, requires only a small number of spare parts and reduces maintenance costs
- RRUs can be installed on a tower, reducing feeder costs and feeder loss and increasing system gain by 3 dB to 5 dB
- Remote radio frequency technology enables distributed RRU installation, which is perfect for railways
- Multiple-site cells extend cell coverage areas and reduce the number of inter-cell handovers previously required
