ClearGain® Dual Inline TMAs

Americas

Spec Sheet

As mobile usage continues to increase, service providers are faced with the challenge of optimizing and expanding their wireless networks to provide new and existing services. ADC’s ClearGain® Tower-MountedAmplifiers (TMAs) minimize the cost of network expansion and improve the quality of service, allowing carriers to increase profitability from new and existing services.

ClearGain TMAs improve signal quality by boosting the uplink (RX) signal of a mobile system immediately after the antenna. This compensates for the loss in signal strength that occurs when the signal is passed through the coaxial feeder cable to the base transceiver station (BTS) at the base of the tower. These TMAs perform this amplification with the lowest possible noise contribution, resulting in a substantial increase in receiver performance and an improvement in overall coverage. These improvements in quality of service allow mobile subscribers to place more

calls, make longer calls, and successfully complete calls in an expanded geographic area, resulting in increased revenue.

Benefits:

Small size and low weight. Allows for easy installation with minimal visual impact and in weight-restrictedimplementations.

Improved uplink coverage. TMAs enable base stations to receive mobile signals more clearly in a wider coverage area than could otherwise be achieved.

Increased RF performance. By improving signal quality and/or reducing mobile phone power transmission, TMAs provide more successful call attempts, a reduction in dropped calls, maximized data rate, improved call quality and the extension of handset battery life.

Fully AISG compliant.

The ClearGain Dual Inline AWS TMA allows for mounting of the equipment to serve two RX paths in one location on the tower, reducing time and expense in mounting the TMA. The inline feature also allows for easier connection of the jumper cables to the antenna.

A ClearGain TMA system is modular, consisting of both a masthead unit (MHU) and a power distribution unit (PDU), providing full compatibility with all base stations. Due to its exposed installation, the TMA

is designed to withstand demanding weather conditions and features lightning protection, fault monitoring, and a fail-safebypass circuitry system.

Dual Inline Power Distribution Unit

Time and space are important considerations when selecting and installing wireless components at base transceiver station sites. The simple, compact design of ADC’s ClearGain Power Distribution

Unit (PDU) is intended to help service providers save both. From a compact unit that is easily mounted on a wall or in a rack, the ClearGain PDU provides power and alarming for up to three ClearGain Tower-MountedAmplifiers.

Features:

Provides power and alarm functions for on-sitemonitoring of up to threedual-inlinemasthead units (MHUs)

Monitors condition of feeder cable

Wall or rack-mountableto fit available space

LED indicators for alarm functions

Simple, compact design allows for easy installation and connections

AISG compliant

The ClearGain Dual Inline TMA system is modular, consisting of an MHU and a PDU, providing full compatibility with all base stations.

The ClearGain Dual Inline PDU is an integrated unit that provides power and alarm functions for the ClearGain TMA system. The PDU monitors the current of the MHU. If an MHU fails, the ClearGain Dual Inline PDU gives an alarm indication. The ClearGain Dual Inline PDU also monitors the condition of the feeder cable. Alarm indicators identify failure in the feeder cable or MHUs and in which MHU the failure occurred, providing fast and easy on-sitediagnostics.

The flexible design of the ClearGain Dual Inline PDU allows it to be rack-mountedor mounted indoors on the wall or on the side of a BTS cabinet.

An external Bias-Tunit is used in conjunction with the Dual Inline PDU and is designed to connect directly into the BTS coaxial connector.Bias-Tunits are available with various connector types, with gas tube arrestors for lightning protection on the ANT and MHU ports. Quarter wave stub lightning protection is integrated on the BTS port of theBias-Tunits.
