3.2 Airspan Air4G Basestation Hardware

3.2 Site Hardware Installation Instructions

The Instructions in the Airspan Installation Guide (shipped with airspan BS) talk about the process of Installation. Here are Notes from the BBN Installation.

Measure the distance between the mount point for the Airspan base station(BS) and the closest network connection for provisioning the BS.

The following parts are needed for installation:

  1. 370+ W Power supply

Even though Airspan 2.X Ghz operation has a maximum consumption of 370 Watts, -48V power supply rated for 450W is suggested. One candidate is Mean Well SE-450-48.

  1. Power cable with custom connector (shipped with airspan BS)

This power cable is an unearthed DC cable and is approx 75 feet long. If that is long enough, it should be attached to the power supply as shown in figure 1

Attaching Air4G Power Cable

In case longer cable is needed, use an off the shelf 18AWG 3C cable and solder it together to reach the power source.

  1. Appropriate length weatherproof CAT5E/CAT6 cable.

Bulk cable candidate for outdoor use is 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 "Weatherproof Ethernet connector" (shipped with airspan), before the head is put on.

If you use fiber for data connectivity, you will need:

3.3 Site Software Installation Instructions

The Instructions in the Airspan Installation Guide (shipped with airspan BS) talk about the process of Installation. The components for the software installation are:

  1. Netspan Management Software
  2. Netspan Software License
  3. Windows server 2008 Edition License to run the Netspan software
  4. Server/laptop to run Windows machine

The Airspan BS does not power ON by default .

Refer to Page 56 of Installation Guide in conjunction to these instructions.

Air4G-W24 base station has a built in web based interface and default IP 192.168.0.100

Connect the Ethernet cable to a network switch. Configure the PC with an IP address in the 192.168.0.xxx range (e.g. 192.168.0.xxx subnet 255.255.255.0).

Visit the web interface (192.168.0.100)

Change the management IP and VLAN configuration to your site addressing scheme.

Contact seskar (at) winlab (dot) rutgers (dot) edu to initiate license acquisition for netspan.

Place the GPS device connected to Air4G-W24 in an area where it can obtain a Lock.
