Maven digital DAS for Cellular and Public Safety

The fully digital Maven DAS platform uses a completely flexible CPRI-based high speed digital transport fabric. System nodes (Orion master nodes, Cirrus off air master, Stratus high power remote nodes, Cumulus medium power remote, Tarantula routing nodes) are interconnected to suit the system requirements, with topologies from simple star connections to full mesh interconnection supported to suit all types of application and needs for redundancy and routing bandwidth.

The system software automatically registers connected nodes and adapts to provide the best routing, with deterministic routing delay allowing tight control of timing between MIMO and aggregated carriers. This all means that you can commission a Maven DAS system within minutes.

Maven DAS offers:

  • 3-4x less space and fewer units needed in the technician room
  • 4x more bandwidth on the digital fiber link
  • Upgradable for future bands and technologies like 5G
  • Redundant system configuration with automatic fail-over
  • 2x larger coverage area with +43 dBm on all cellular bands
  • 3x less power consumption, no need for cooling fans
  • < 25 kg, one man lift

The remote units have excellent RF performance, with a typical uplink noise figure of 3 dB. The low noise figure allows many remote units to feed a single base station, while fast automatic gain control protects the system from abnormally high signal levels at the remote. Careful design minimizes PIM, and spectrum and VSWR monitoring allows for faults in the antenna system to quickly be detected and resolved.

Each remote unit supports three high-speed QSFP+ connections, allowing for flexible redundant ring and mesh connection topologies. In addition, 4 SFP+ connections are provided for local interconnections between remote units for MIMO installation, and give flexibility for specialized DWDM / BiDi fibre installations.

Stratus Cellular quad band high power

The Maven Stratus high power remote node achieves +43 dBm RF output power per band in all bands supporting multi-operator and multi-standard operation from 700 to 2600 MHz. This is achieved with a power efficiency that is unequalled in existing DAS solutions, requiring less than half the power. As a result, a Stratus quad band remote unit is small and light (<25 kg) and requires no cooling fans. This is particularly important since remote units are often installed in harsh environments such as tunnels, where air filters regularly need replacing. The absence of fans, and an IP65 environmental rating, make the Stratus remotes maintenance free.

Stratus Public Safety high power

The Maven Stratus high power remote node for Public Safety achieves +43 dBm RF output power for PS-LTE bands and +40 dBm for UHF / TETRA. Up to 4 different bands can be fitted into the same enclosure and different technologies can be supported from the same unit.

The Stratus Public Safety remote unit is small, light (<25 kg) and requires no cooling fans. This is particularly important since remote units are often installed in harsh environments such as tunnels, where air filters regularly need replacing. The absence of fans, and an IP65 environmental rating, make the Stratus remotes maintenance free.

Cumulus 6-band medium power

The Maven Cumulus medium power remote node achieves a +30 dBm RF output power per band in all bands supporting multi-operator and multi-standard operation from 700 to 2600 MHz. A Stratus 6-band remote unit is small, light (<25 kg) and requires no cooling fans. This is particularly important since remote units are often installed in harsh environments such as tunnels, where air filters regularly need replacing. The absence of fans, and an IP65 environmental rating, make the Cumulus remotes maintenance free.

Orion

The Orion RF Master Node is a compact 3HU rack mounted design which can be fitted with up to 8 RF band modules. Each band module has a separate RF / digital conversion function, and any combination of frequency bands can be installed, with MIMO and carrier aggregation support across multiple RF band modules.

The Orion band modules contain functionality which requires a separate POI in competing solutions: the band module supports up to 4 RF connections at up to +30 dBm input power each, with simplex or duplex connections and automatic power levelling per input.

This functionality gives unequalled installation density: a complete multi-operator multi-sector installation can be supported by a single Orion unit, or each operator can be allocated a separate band module if separation of analogue signals is desired.

The digital fabric is accessed via 4 QSFP+ connections, giving a total RF routing bandwidth of approximately 4.8 GHz. These fabric interconnections can be used to connect and route RF signals to any other type of node.

For high reliability the Orion unit has redundant hot swappable power supplies, with simple replacement thanks to a front pull-out power supply module.

Cirrus Off Air Master

The Cirrus off air master node picks up signals from the macro network which are converted into digital CPRI feeding the remotes. The off-air master unit is embedded into a fan-less IP65 rated enclosure for easy deployment.

The concept of an off-air master is very powerful when deploying a system with few system nodes, eliminating the need for dedicated technician rooms for the system. The system supports various topologies for flexibility and redundancy such as star and ring topologies. The units can be cascaded flexibly. Both single mode and multi-mode fibre can be used.

Tarantula

The Tarantula is a rack-mounted unit that provides additional digital routing flexibility. Routing can be performed between six QSFP connectors; alternatively, data for 4 of the QSFP connectors can instead be routed via SFP+ modules for applications such as remote base station hotels using DWDM over limited fibre connections, or where SFP+ connection to remote units is required. The unit has redundant power supplies with simple replacement thanks to a front pull-out power supply module.

In addition to its role in the DAS routing fabric, the Tarantula is prepared for a role as a digital interface to base station baseband processing units, allowing a true multi-operator virtual RAN solution as will be discussed later.
