The Baicells Nova846 is an advanced two-carrier outdoor eNodeB (eNB) that is compliant with 3GPP LTE TDD technology. This 8x5W eNB is capable of operating in Carrier Aggregation (CA) mode or Dual Carrier (DC)/split mode.
In CA mode, contiguous or non-contiguous channels are aggregated to provide up to 40 MHz bandwidth. This essentially doubles the downlink capacity when the CA mode is used with all Cat6/7 user equipment.
In DC mode, each carrier is treated as an independent cell, supporting 128+128 users, and each supporting 20 MHz bandwidth. Using a Nova846 in DC mode simplifies and streamlines the deployment of split sectors.
Additionally, HaloB (an embedded MME option) is a standard feature in the base software. The Baicells patented HaloB solution migrates the necessary core network functions to the eNB.
The product comes with a standard one-year warranty; extended warranty is available.
