These steps outline the basic tasks required to complete a successful installation at each tower
location. Specific steps will vary, depending upon the requirements of the system design and the
conditions each site.
Details regarding specific steps are found in dedicated topics, as noted.
Optimum network performance can only be achieved through careful planning. Most successful
networks deploy multiple transmission sites, in a triangular overlapping-cell pattern, as shown.
Before beginning the installation steps, the installer should carefully read all of the work orders,
blueprints, plans, datasheets, and site drawings to determine work to be done, and then plan out the
deployment.

Correct orientation and tilt of the antennas is the most critical part of the installation.
Alignment of the antennas consists of two steps, azimuth orientation (horizontal) and mechanical tilt
adjustment (vertical).
Azimuth is the horizontal orientation of the antenna on the horizon. The antenna is installed in the
desired azimuth direction.
Compass directions are measured in degrees, with North = 0° (or 360°), East = 90°, South = 180°, and
West = 270°, as shown on the compass rose.
Tilt of the antenna is the vertical angle of the antenna in relation to the horizon. It is also referred to
as elevation or inclination of the antenna.
The angle of elevation is measured in positive or negative degrees, with an angle above the horizon
being positive and below the horizon being negative.
Tilt is used when antenna radiation must be redirected to concentrate the energy in a new direction.
Downward tilt (downtilt) is most common. Inclination up, called uptilt, is very rare and only used in
extreme cases.
Antenna tilt is typically adjusted to zero degrees. The site installation plan indicates any deviation
from the normal zero inclination for each antenna.

CN1100 Access Point - Installation Guide - G7601 - 3.8
When multiple antennas are installed on the tower, mast, or other support structure, each antenna is
installed at the same height (vertical level), using standard installation practice. On a tower structure,
mount the antennas on a vertical or horizontal member.
Most towers have only three tower legs. When installing four antennas, consider the required degree
separation for the desired coverage. Determine which tower leg will best accommodate two of the
antennas that will not interfere mechanically with the two antennas mounted on the other two tower
legs.
Mount the antenna in the desired azimuth direction, as shown in the site plan.
Use a magnetic compass to determine the optimum mounting location, and then mount the antenna
into place. If a physical compass is not available, a free smart phone compass app can also be used.
After mounting, again use the compass to ensure that the antenna azimuth is correct. Do not fully
tighten the mount until completing the mechanical tilt adjustment.
Before fully tightening the mounting bolts, measure and adjust the tilt of the antenna with an
inclinometer positioned against the back of the antenna.
After installing the cable, each antenna is then installed and oriented as required by the network site
plan. The rest of the equipment is then installed and connected.
The steps in this example, for 360° coverage, assume that four antennas, at 90° angles, are to be
installed.
1. Install antenna #1 at the Northern most mounting location.
2. Adjust the azimuth (horizontal orientation) of the antenna to a compass reading of 0° (degrees)
magnetic.
3. Measure and adjust the tilt of the antenna to 0° with an inclinometer positioned against the back
of the antenna. Securely tighten all mounting bolts.
4. Install antenna #2 at the Eastern most mounting location.
5. Adjust the azimuth (horizontal orientation) of the antenna to a compass reading of 90° magnetic.
6. Measure and adjust the tilt of the antenna to 0° with an inclinometer positioned against the back
of the antenna. Securely tighten all mounting bolts.
7. Install antenna #3 at the Southern most mounting location.
8. Adjust the azimuth (horizontal orientation) of the antenna to a compass reading of 180° magnetic.
33
CN1100 Access Point - Installation Guide - G7601 - 3.8
9. Measure and adjust the tilt of the antenna to 0° with an inclinometer positioned against the back
of the antenna. Securely tighten all mounting bolts.
10. Install antenna #3 at the Western most mounting location.
11. Adjust the azimuth (horizontal orientation) of the antenna to a compass reading of 270° magnetic.
12. Measure and adjust the tilt of the antenna to 0° with an inclinometer positioned against the back
of the antenna. Securely tighten all mounting bolts.
1. At the site location, record the GPS coordinates at the center of the tower.
2. Identify the desired height and location for the CN1100 Access Point devices and antennas to be
installed on structure.
For each CN1100 to be installed, run Ethernet data cable from the CN1100 location on the tower to
the weather-protected CN1100 power supply location.
IMPORTANT
• UV-resistant CMX outdoor-rated, Cat 5e UTP Ethernet cable MUST be used.
• Foil-shielded cable is recommended in areas requiring protection from EMI, RFI, or cross talk.
• Failure to properly install the provided IP68-rated Weatherproof Ethernet Power Connector may
lead to product failure, and void the product warranty.
Color-code and document each data cable, as shown in the topic Antenna Cabling Identification on
page 27.
3. For each CN1100 to be installed, attach the supplied weatherproof Ethernet connector onto the
CN1100 end of the data cable.
4. Also install two ferrite beads on the end of this data cable, within 6 inches of the CN1100 Access
Point.
5. Install the antenna or antennas, as specified by your system design (sector, omni, or panel).
NOTE
If using the xMax Panel Antenna, the CN1100 was previously prepared for installation as shown in
the topic Panel Antenna Assembly on page 31.
6. Orient the antennas according to the network plan.
Refer to the topic Antenna Orientation Overview on page 28 for detailed information.
34
CN1100 Access Point - Installation Guide - G7601 - 3.8
7. Select an appropriate location near the antenna to mount the CN1100 Access Point
and then secure it with an appropriate mounting bracket.
IMPORTANT: Omni or Sector Antenna Installations
A properly grounded lightning arrester MUST be installed at each CN1100 antenna connector.
8. Connect the antenna cables to the CN1100 Access Point devices.
IMPORTANT
Ensure that the correct CN1100 Access Point connector is attached to the correct antenna
connector.
9. Connect the data cable from the weather-protected CN1100 power supply location to the mounted
CN1100 device.
10. Install appropriate ground lightning protection.
11. Check the antenna positioning to ensure specified azimuths and tilts, and readjust as necessary.
12. Inspect the completed work to ensure all hardware is tight, antennas are level, hangers are
properly fastened, proper support is in place, and strain reliefs and drip loops are provided on all
exposed cables.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
All connectors on the CN1100 Access Point are IP67-rated, providing full protection against
dust and water intrusion. Application of any additional weatherproofing is NOT required.
If weatherproofing products are used, future servicing of the equipment might be difficult or
impossible, and void the product warranty.
13. At the weather-protected CN1100 power supply location, install a PoE Surge Protector for each
CN1100 Access Point device.
IMPORTANT
The PoE Surge Protector MUST be properly grounded.
14. Install an RJ-45 connector on the end of the data cable running from the CN1100.
15. Install two ferrite beads on the Ethernet cable from the CN1100, within 6 inches of the surge
protector.
16. Connect this cable to the grounded PoE Surge Protector.
17. Install the supplied PoE++ Power Supply near the PoE Surge Protector.
18. Using a short Ethernet cable, connect the PoE Surge Protector to the Power plus Data (OUT) port

The self organization features in xMax SON provide:




Auto channel selection upon boot
Web GUI accessible rules table
Periodic re-scan for better channel
Bridge devices, xMods and xVMs, scan all possible channels and build available
and preferred channel lists
NOTE
The CN1100s are installed first, and then SON is configured.
The rules table is a mechanism, located within each CN1100 that forms the set of rules that guide the
cognitive engine. The table includes entries for each possible channel that can instruct it either to use
the channel, prefer the channel, or exclude the channel.
One channel selected is a special case. The CN1100 locks to one channel. Upon initialization, it does
not scan. It goes to the locked channel and begins operation. The operator can use this feature to
manually configure the network, bypassing the SON features.
In this table, the CN1100 is locked to channel 8.

When selecting two or more channels for use, the CN1100 only scans the selected preferred
channels. The disabled channels are never used. Network operators can disable certain channels
when they are reserved for other equipment or use.
The system automatically selects the best channel from the Preferred list.
In this table, the CN1100 scans the selected Preferred (P) channels 4 thru 9. The CN1100 then selects
the best channel, channel 8. Enabled (E) channels 4-7 and 9 are not used. It never uses the Disabled
(D) channels (1-3 or 10-16).

On initialization, the CN1100:

Applies random backoff (in 10s of seconds)

Scans the preferred and enabled channels

Applies the table rules (interference, loading, and beacon SINR)

Selects the best channel

Begins operating
The CN1100 uses the described rules table to select a channel based on the following input:

Scanning logs the SINR and loading of an xMax signal on each preferred channel.

Scanning logs the relative noise floor of each preferred channel.

A decision engine chooses the best channel to use based upon the conditions of that channel.
The channel with the lowest xMax SINR and noise floor, but still below a maximum allowable
threshold as set in the internal table, is claimed and used.

If no channels with xMax signals below the maximum threshold are found, no channel is
claimed and this condition is reported to xMonitor/SNMP.

An CN1100 in the “no channel available” condition waits a specified time and then begins
channel scanning for an available channel.
From time to time, the CN1100 scans for a better channel. A better channel is defined the same way
the channels were graded in the initial scan. However, just because there is a better channel from the
CN1100 receiver perspective, this is not necessarily a mandate to change channels.
The CN1100 makes a periodic scan on a timed interval or when the channel reaches a determined
error or noise threshold. This threshold or timing is set so that channel is unusable or idle. Mobile
devices use their preferred channel list to hand off to another CN1100, if available. In this case, the
bridge devices, xMods and xVMs, scan until they reacquire a CN1100.
In order for SON to work, as well as handoff or DSA, the xMod/xVM must always scan in the
background to build a preferred channel list. This list includes all available channels, as these devices
are mobile and may move into locations that have different channel sets or different excluded
channels.

identified within xG’s price book at time of purchase. Any products not covered by xG’s warranty,
but supplied under the customer's Purchase Order with xG as part of the delivered equipment, are
covered under that manufacturer's standard warranty and any warranty claims should be handled
directly with that manufacturer.
xG’s warranty shall not apply: (i) to any Product subjected to accident, misuse, neglect, alteration,
acts of God, improper handling, improper transport, improper storage, improper use or application,
improper installation, improper testing or unauthorized repair; (ii) use of parts or accessories not
approved or supplied by xG, or failure to perform operator handling and scheduled maintenance
instructions supplied by xG or (iii) to cosmetic problems or defects that result from normal wear
and tear under ordinary use, and do not affect the performance or use of the Product.
If the Product develops a covered defect within the warranty period, xG will, at its option, either
repair or replace the Product found by xG to be defective or not in conformity with material
specifications, provided that the Product is returned during the warranty period.

Customer is responsible for shipment to xG (or authorized service provider) and assumes all costs
and risks associated with this transportation; return shipment to the Customer will be at xG’s
expense. Customer shall be responsible for return shipment charges for Product returned where xG
determines there is no defect ("No Defect Found"), or for Product returned that xG determines is
not eligible for warranty repair. No charge will be made to customer for replacement parts for
warranty repairs.
Product that has been repaired or replaced may consist of refurbished equipment that contains
used components, some of which have been reprocessed. The used components comply with xG
Product performance and reliability specifications. The repair services provided are warranted
against defects in workmanship and materials on the repaired component of the product for a
period of 30 days from the shipment date of the repaired product, or until the end of the original
warranty period, whichever is longer.
xG is not responsible for any damage to or loss of any software programs, data or removable data
storage media, or the restoration or reinstallation of any software programs or data other than the
software, if any, installed by xG during manufacture of the Product or shipped with Product. xG’s
sole obligation for software that when properly installed and used does not substantially conform
to the published specifications in effect when the software is first shipped by xG, is to use
commercially reasonable efforts to correct any reproducible material non conformity (as
determined by xG at its sole discretion) by providing Customer with: (a) telephone or e-mail access
to report non conformance so that xG can verify reproducibility; (b) a software patch or bug-fix, if
available, or a workaround to bypass the issue, if available; and (c) where applicable, replacement
of damaged or defective external media, such as a CD-ROM disk, on which the software was
originally delivered. xG does not warrant that the use of the software will be uninterrupted, errorfree, free of security vulnerabilities, or that the software will meet Customer’s particular
requirements. Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for breach of this warranty is, at Seller's
option, to receive (i) suitably modified software, or part thereof, or (ii) comparable replacement
software or part thereof.
Because it is impossible for xG to know the purposes for which the purchaser acquired this Product
or the uses to which this Product will be put, the purchaser assumes full responsibility for the
selection of the Product for its installation and use. While every reasonable effort has been made
to insure that the purchaser will receive a Product that can be used and enjoyed, xG does not
warrant that the functions of the Product will meet the purchaser’s requirements or that the
operation of the Product will be uninterrupted or error-free. xG is not responsible for problems
caused by the interaction of the Product with any other software or hardware.

To obtain warranty service or technical support, please contact the party from whom you
purchased the product. If you purchased the product directly from xG, contact your xG Sales
Representative or call 754-206-4800. To take advantage of this Limited Warranty Purchasers are
required to supply an original point of purchase receipt. Returned Product must be accompanied by
the purchaser’s sales receipt or comparable substitute proof of sale showing the date of purchase,
the serial number of Product, and the sellers’ name and address (if purchased through a authorized
xG reseller).
This Limited Warranty Policy shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the purchaser with respect
to xG’s Products. xG's sole liability on any claim arising out of the sale of the Product or xG's
replacement of defective product, whether in contract, warranty, tort, or otherwise shall be limited
to the purchase price of the goods that prove defective or nonconforming. In no event shall xG be
liable for, and purchaser shall hold xG harmless from, any damages, direct, indirect, or
consequential, whether resulting from xG's negligence or otherwise, arising out of, in connection
with, or resulting from the goods sold to the Purchaser (including, without limitation, damages, for
loss of business profits, business interruption, loss of information, or any other pecuniary loss), and
any and all claims, actions, suits, and proceedings which may be instituted in respect to the
foregoing, including those made by subsequent owners and users of the goods. In no event shall xG
be liable for damages from alleged negligence, breach of warranty, strict liability, incidental or
consequential damages, or any other theory, other than the Limited Warranty set forth herein.
xG neither assumes nor authorizes any of its dealers, representatives, or any other person or entity
to assume for it any other obligation or liability beyond that which is expressly provided for in this
Limited Warranty.
xG MAKES NO WARRANTY OTHER THAN THE LIMITED WARRANTY REFERRED TO HEREIN. THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ANY AND ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND IT CONSTITUTES THE ONLY WARRANTY MADE WITH RESPECT TO THE
GOODS COVERED BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. xG SHALL UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE
LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
