Nokia EKSOS Node Control Unit (NCU) 120 Ohms (T35010.11)

The Node Control Unit (NCU) contains a CPU environment for all of the common control functions inside the Nokia_EKSOS N20 node. The NCU contains the core functionalities such as the V5 control functions and node synchronisation. This unit also has a Q3 interface for network management and 4 x 2 Mbit/s interfaces for aggregate use. At least one NCU is always required in each Eksos N20 node.

Each Eksos N20 node can support up to four V5.2 interfaces and there must be at least one NCU per each V5.2 interface.
