SUBMITTED BY- AKASH RAY1
INTRODUCTIONTo provide reliable digital access links and fully exploit the potential of end-to-end advanced networks, NEC has developed the PASOLINK NEO, a narrow band point-topoint digital microwave relay system operating at radio frequency (RF) bands of 6/7/8/10/11/13/15/18/23/26/28/32/38/52 GHz. This system meets an increasing demand for digital transmission services, and will satisfy the needs for common carrier access links, private links, urban area networks, rural area networks, temporary networks or emergency links for data and transmissions. The PASOLINK equipment offers very high performance with large system flexibility, which is easy to install and is a field proven to be very reliable. The PASOLINK NEO system provides interface types of PDH, SDH and LAN. The systems consist of antennas, outdoor unit (ODU) and Indoor unit (IDU) same as PASOLINK series. They are connected through a coaxial cable for each radio channel. Available configurations are non-protected type (1+0) and protected type (1+1). The protected type is available for twin-path type and hot-standby type.

AntennaThe complete menu of PASOLINK+ antennas includes diameters of 0.3m to 1.8m. They are designed to meet stringent requirements on mechanical rigidity. Antennas with diameters of 0.3m to 1.8m can be mounted directly to the ODU, making waveguides obsolete. This has relevant cost and reliability merits and makes the installation quicker and easier. The PASOLINK+ pole mounting structure is designed in a way that the ODU can be replaced while keeping the antenna and mounting bracket, including orientation, in place. The reflectors of the antennas are covered with white diffusive paint and the mounting structure is hot-dip galvanized. In the 6 - 8 GHz band, coaxial or waveguide cable with transducer is used for connecting between the ODU and IDU.
Transmitter-Receiver (ODU)The transmitter-receiver is designed to handle a STM-1 signal in 6-38 GHz bands. The equipment is designed to withstand severe weather conditions. 32/128-Quadrature amplitude modulation (32/128 QAM) is applied. Local Oscillator is employed for APC (Automatic Phase Control) loop circuit at the transmitter and receiver.

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS Protection Capability- PASOLINK+ provides a protection switching system of Hot standby protection (1 + 1), and twin-path protection (1 + 1). 1. Non-Protection System- Non-protection system consists of one ODU, one IDU for 1+0 System, and one antenna. 2. Hot-Standby System- Hot-Standby system consists of two ODUs, one IDU for 1 + 1 system, and one or two sets of antennas. The protection switch of this systems is performed by the TX switches on the ODUs at the transmitting end and Hitless switch on the 150 M INTFC (or OPT INTFC) module in the IDU at the receiving end. 3. Twin-path System- Twin-Path system consists of two ODUs, one IDU for 1 + 1 System, and two sets of antennas. The protection switch of this system is performed by the Hitless switch on the 150 M INTFC (or OPT INTFC) module in the IDU at the receiving end.

Maintenance Facilities Local and remote supervision function on IDU through LCT or PNMTj Remote monitoring of ODU operating condition on IDU through PNMTj Full front access at IDU for all cabling and user interface Loop back facility -Near end baseband, Far end baseband IF loop back Pre-settable BER alarm point: 10-3, 10-4 or 10-5 (ext. alarm/AIS injection point).APS (Automatic Protection Switch) function (Option)APS realizes optical line protection for STM-1. This is simplified from conventional MSP (Multiplex Section Protection) function in order to fit RST mode equipment (ITU-T G.841, Non-revertive Mode).
XPIC (Cross Polarization Interference Canceller)PASOLINK NEO can improve its transmission capacity up to dual STM-1 in 28 MHz (27.5 MHz for 18 GHz band) bandwidth by using XPIC technology. In case of this capacity upgrading from one STM-1 system, the additional parts are dual polarized antenna, one more ODU/ IDU set, some XPIC cable kit and additional firmware. The upgrading can be realized with existing STM-1 equipment.
