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 power supplies, with simple replacement thanks to a front pull-out power supply module.
