E-RAN RN-200 Radio Node

E-RAN RN-200 Radio Node

High Performance 3G Small Cell

NEC Radio Nodes are high-performance, 3G small cells specially designed for scalable in-building deployments by mobile operators for medium to large enterprise customers.

Each Radio Node supports up to 32 simultaneous 3G voice and data channels, a peak downlink rate of 21 Mbps and a peak uplink rate of 5 Mbps. Industry-leading MAC / PHY software implements receive diversity for superior uplink performance and implements soft handovers.

To support the self-organizing capabilities of the Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN), Radio Nodes have advanced “network listen” capabilities. Radio Nodes are able to listen to other radio nodes, as well as to 2G and 3G macrocells in multiple frequency bands. Scans are done at startup and, later, periodically.

Security has been a major consideration in the design of the Radio Node. All communication between a Radio Node and the NEC Services Node (SN) occurs through an IPSec tunnel. Encryption keys and device certificates are securely stored using on-chip Trusted Platform Module (TPM) functions, allowing support for a secure boot process, and certificate-based authentication. There is no management or console port on the Radio Node, and it can be physically locked to prevent theft or intrusion.

Radio Nodes can be installed on walls or ceilings. Both network connectivity and power are provided over Ethernet. Radio Nodes have no fans and are completely convection cooled. Antennas are built-in with an option to use external antennas as required.
