CableFree: Wireless Excellence offers high performance 4G/LTE Base stations solutions for a wide variety of applications. Covering all common 4G/LTE bands the base stations feature Software Defined Radio (SDR) which enables great flexibility of operation and future upgrade path.
4G/LTE networks using CableFree Emerald 4G SDR base stations enjoy great flexibility, high performance as well as very low cost of operation and ownership. "Stand Alone" operation is possible which enables the 4G Base station to connect remote terminals without need for external network elements.. This is ideal for closed network type applications such as CCTV, campus sites and disaster recovery scenarios, where there is no centralised infrastructure or Network Operations Centre.
The CableFree: Wireless Excellence Emerald platform is an integrated advanced system capable of handling multiple LTE carriers. Provided in a sealed carrier grade unit for installation in most locations. The Emerald RF platform is at the forefront in terms of digital pre-distortion technology and signal processing associated to advanced PA architecture. This make the Emerald platform ideal for implementation within the cellular and advanced point to point communications market.
The Emerald RRH RF units are suitable as a multicarrier power amplifier either in the Base station or aggregated within the deployment. To achieve maximum flexibility in terms of utilisation, units can support:
- TDD or FDD Modes
- Additional Customer specific frequencies
The duplexer used for TDD modes ensures compliance with the ETSI TS136 104 specifications.
The Emerald RF platform allows management through the Ethernet based connection. This allows for the transceiver to be managed or upgraded either via local connection or via secure remote protocols.
CableFree Emerald RF platform allows for the Rx inputs to operate in high or low sensitivity modes for NF receiver performance.
The Emerald RF unit carries 2 CPRI input connections to allow for the latest generation of LTE architecture to be implemented.
