Project Description

Remote Radio Unit (RRU) power cable’s are generally installed in towers and are controlled by a  controller placed inside a closed shelter on the ground near the tower. The connection between the RRU and controller is generally optical and RRU cable is a – 48V DC shielded cable. It feeds – 48V DC power to an RRU . The maximum length that an RRU power cable supports is 100m.

RRU Functons

– Acts as a transceiver: transmit and receive the user signals to the base station and vice-versa.
– Provides back to back support and connectivity between user equipment’s like power, delay,etc.
– Control and process the EM signals received from the Antenna via Jumper(Hollow Guide).
