     1== 3.2 Airspan Air4G Basestation Hardware ==
     2
     3== 3.2 Site Hardware Installation Instructions ==
     4
     5The Instructions in the Airspan Installation Guide (shipped with airspan BS) talk about the process of Installation.
     6Here are Notes from the BBN Installation.
     7
     8Measure the distance between the mount point for the Airspan base station(BS)
     9and the closest network connection for provisioning the BS.
     10
     11The following parts are needed for installation:
     12
     13    1. 370+ W Power supply
     14
     15Even though Airspan 2.X Ghz operation has a maximum consumption of 370 Watts, -48V power supply rated for 450W is suggested. One candidate is [http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10001_10001_2105164_-1 Mean Well SE-450-48].
     16
     17    2. Power cable with custom connector (shipped with airspan BS)
     18
     19This power cable is an unearthed DC cable and is approx 75 feet
     20long. If that is long enough, it should be attached to the power supply as
     21shown in figure 1
     22
     23[[Image(Air4gPS.jpg, width=300, align=right)]]
     24
     25In case longer cable is needed, use an off the shelf 18AWG 3C cable and solder it
     26together to reach the power source.
     27
     28    3. Appropriate length weatherproof CAT5E/CAT6 cable.
     29
     30Bulk cable candidate for outdoor use is [http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/BELKIN-1000ft-CAT5E-DIRECT-BURIAL-CABLE/1302244.aspx Belkin Direct Burial Cable]. Once cable is in place, Ethernet RJ45 connectors have to be placed at both ends; make sure that the Ethernet cable is passed through the
     31"Weatherproof Ethernet connector" (shipped with airspan), before the head is put on.
     32
     33If you use fiber for data connectivity, you will need:
     34
     35 * Fiber coupler[http://www.l-com.com/item.aspx?id=2016 LC-LC]
     36 * Appropriate length [http://www.l-com.com/item.aspx?id=1689 fiber (50/125 multimode)]
     37
     38== 3.3  Site Software Installation Instructions ==
     39   
     40 The Instructions in the Airspan Installation Guide (shipped with airspan BS) talk about the process of Installation.
     41 The components for the software installation are:
     42
     43    1. Netspan Management Software
     44    2. Netspan Software License
     45    3. Windows server 2008 Edition License to run the Netspan software
     46    4. Server/laptop to run Windows machine
     47
     48The Airspan BS ''' does not power ON by default '''.
     49
     50Refer to Page 56 of Installation Guide in conjunction to these instructions.
     51
     52Air4G-W24 base station has a built in web based interface and default IP 192.168.0.100
     53
     54Connect the Ethernet cable to a network switch. Configure the PC with an IP address in the 192.168.0.xxx range
     55(e.g. 192.168.0.xxx subnet 255.255.255.0).
     56
     57Visit the web interface (192.168.0.100)
