The Baicells Nova430e is an advanced two-carrier outdoor eNodeB (eNB) compliant with 3GPP LTE TDD technology. This 4x250mW eNB can operate in Carrier Aggregation (CA) mode or Dual Carrier (DC)/split mode.
The Nova430 is available in two variants: The Nova430e, which has one 4-port or two 2-port external antennas, and the Nova 430i, which has four integrated high-gain LTE antennas. The Nova430e is described in this datasheet.
In CA mode, contiguous or non-contiguous channels are aggregated to provide up to 40 MHz bandwidth. This doubles the downlink capacity when CA mode is used with all CAT6/7 or higher user equipment.
In DC mode, each carrier is treated as an independent cell, supporting 96+96 users, with each supporting 5, 10, 15, or 20 MHz bandwidth. Using a Nova 430e in DC mode simplifies and streamlines the deployment of split sectors.
In addition to CA and DC mode options, HaloB (an embedded MME option) is available on the Nova 430e as part of the base software. The Baicells patented HaloB solution migrates the necessary core network functions to the eNB.
