This is the second-generation GSM Digital Unit for RBS 6xxx. It combines the baseband processing and back-haul interface of up to 12 TRX, in 1..6 logical BTSs.

- DUG 20
- -48V DC supply power
- 70W maximal power consumption
- Size: 8U x 31mm x 250mm
- Weight: < 2kg
There is a CF slot on the left this device and it holds a 256mbyte CF card. The card contains a FAT filesystem with both the software as well as the configuration (IDB = Installation DataBase).
The DUG 20 has 6 SFP slots for the interface towards the radio units, labelled RI A..F
The back-haul interface is Classic T1/E1/J1 (ISDN) based. The DUG has four T1/E1/J1 lines exposed as two RJ45 connectors ("ET A" and "ET B")
|1||A||RX tip (+)|
|2||A||RX ring (-)|
|3||B||TX tip (+)|
|4||A||TX tip (+)|
|5||A||TX ring (-)|
|6||B||TX ring (-)|
|7||B||RX tip (+)|
|8||B||RX ring (-)|
Same pinout as a Digium card with 2 lines per port.
So a cross-over cable is needed to connect to it.
note that its a bit smaller than the sfp slots
LMT B, LMT A, EC, GPS¶
LMT (Local Maintenance Terminal) A hosts a RS-232 port used for connecting to the DUG 20 from a PC running the OMT software.
Site-LAN and LMT B
"Enclosure Control". A (likely) RS-485 based site-local bus between different parts, particularly any power supply / climate systems and the digital unit. Used for monitoring/alamrs in case of environmental failure.
GPS¶This port is meant for attaching an external GPS receiver. The connector includes
- RS485/422 receiver for NMEA from the GPS
- RS485/422 transmitter for command to the GPS
- RS485/422 receiver for 1PPS signal from the GPS
- 12V power supply for the GPS
-48V DC in¶
Connectory type is a https://www.te.com/usa-en/product-1982299-3.html with associated crimp contacts.
Telecom equipment such as the DUG 20 typically has a positive ground system also known as "negative" 48 Volt1.
Be aware (beware!) of short circuits. The chassis of the DUG and any other ground terminal on any port is connected to the +48v terminal, If any other equipment with a (typical) negative ground system is connected to the same DC supply as the DUG, there will be voltage difference between the ground terminals (and chassis) of this equipment and the DUG.
Connector on the Back¶
This connector is not used during normal operation. We assume it is for factory / service use only.
