CrossFire is the industry’s advanced DAS platform that provides cost-effective DAS solutions to mobile network operators around the globe. Our innovative transport technology supports multiple complete 3GPP bands, simplifies deployment, and provides access to ongoing network configuration.
Access Unit (AU) – The Access Unit, only 1U high, provides connectivity between the DAS and the serving base stations. Each AU, which is responsible for signal processing, signal filtering and optical transport, accommodates up to 4 3GPP bands and any technology. Power consumption is only 80 watts, and all cooling is convection based. DAS configuration is supported by a GUI-based OMT. Depending on maximum fiber bandwidth, you can cascade up to 3 AU units to support 12 bands, supporting any combination of SISO and MIMO. Crossfire’s NMS supports full remote monitoring and configuration of supported DAS installations via the AU.
Low Power Remote Unit (LPRU) – The Low Power Remote Unit supports up to 4 bands with a power output of up to +27 dBm. The LPRU’s modular design supports SISO, 2xMIMO and 4xMIMO within a 1U unit. You can cascade LRPUs to maximize deployment configurations. A GigE interface for Wi-Fi/Small Cell transport is available with local and remote diagnostics and configuration. Power consumption is 100W, and the unit is convection-cooled. The LPRU is an ideal choice for enterprise buildings, hospitals, hotels, and residential buildings as it can support 8-10 indoor antennas. It is also the perfect option to upgrade places where an existing passive DAS has been deployed previously.
High Power Remote Unit (HPRU) – The High Power Remote Unit supports up to two bands with a power output of +43 dBm in a convection-cooled chasses of only 15 liters (0.52 cu. ft.). The HPRU supports SISO and 2xMIMO. You can cascade multiple HPRUs. A GigE interface for Wi-Fi/Small Cell transport is available with local and remote diagnostics and configuration. Power consumption is 250W. The HPRU extends coverage from a single base station to a larger area while supporting multiple operators and technologies to provide an energy, space, and cost efficient DAS solution.
Nano Power Remote Unit (NPRU) – The Nano Power Remote Unit, offering the same functionality as high and low power remote units, was developed to meet the demands of the Enterprise market by adopting the same system architecture as Wi-Fi (featuring Wi-Fi & GigE connectivity with POE+ pass-through). The Nano supports up to 4 discrete channels (15dBm output power per channel) on a Cat5e or Cat6a STP cable, and supports SISO and 2xMIMO configurations.
EUO – The Expansion Unit, only 1U high, supports both optical port expansion and multiple GigE interfaces. You can cascade EUs to support complex double star DAS configurations. Power consumption is 50W.
EUE – The Expansion Unit, only 1U high, supports PoE+ based CAT 5 or 6 links to support up to 12 NANO units as well as multiple GigE interfaces.
