NGMN - Cover RF Cluster Phase2

Recommendation on RF Cluster Connector – Antenna to Radio Module Pinout Alignment

This White Paper adresses the alignment of 8T8R antenna and 8T8R radio module pinout with a unique naming system and pinout order on repeatable basis to simplify rigging of installations. This shall help to mimimise the potential for cross feeder/connection issues.

The goal is to have one simple naming convention which allows different vendors to manufacture only one product  variant to simplify deployment logistics and future site maintenance.

This document is the output of Phase 2 of the NGMN cluster connector project.


BASTA Active Antenna Systems

Recommendation on Base Station Active Antenna System Standards

The main scope of this White Paper is to describe and capture the electrical and mechanical key performance parameters of Active Antenna Systems and how to exchange this data electronically.

In addition, for the aim of RF-Electromagnetic Field exposure, a description of mechanisms to monitor and limit the power radiated by Active Antenna Systems is provided.
