Spectralink Repeater Installation Guide
Installing the Spectralink DECT Repeater
This section describes the Spectralink DECT Repeater and how to unpack and install it. Installing
repeaters requires a software installation as well as a hardware installation.
Note:
Before you install the equipment, ensure that a site planner defines the location of the
repeaters.
The coverage depends on the construction of the building and the choice of building
materials.
The repeater does not add channels. It only adds additional coverage area.
For installations, the following items should be present in every box containing a Spectralink DECT
Repeater:
l
Spectralink DECT Repeater
l
Mounting template
l
Two mounting screws and anchors
Description of Repeater
The Spectralink DECT Repeater is a building block to be used to extend the coverage area in a wireless Spectralink DECT solution. The repeater does not increase the number of traffic channels, however it provides a larger physical spreading of the traffic channels and thereby increases the
coverage area established with the Spectralink IP-DECT/DECT Base Stations.
The repeaters are mainly used in areas with limited traffic. The Spectralink DECT Repeater is available with either 2 or 4 voice channels. It is wireless and does not need physical connection to the
Spectralink IP-DECT/DECT Server, making it very easy to install. The repeaters can be supplied
with an external antenna making it possible to create radio coverage in a remote area without
cabling to the rest of the installation.
The base station can support up to 3 repeaters.

Site Installation Considerations
Before you begin the installation, determine the position of the repeater for best coverage. The coverage depends on the construction of the building and the choice of building materials.
The repeater can be registered on the system under the following circumstances.
l
When placed within the coverage area of a base station
l
When placed within the coverage area of an already-installed repeater
l
When placed outside the coverage area of a base station or repeater using an external
antenna.
Note:
The repeater does not add channels. It only adds additional coverage area.
Environmental Considerations
l
l
Do not install a device near metal objects and steel constructions.
Do not position devices in ducts, plenums or hollow spaces used to transport environmentalair
except where the duct, plenum or hollow space is created by a suspended ceiling having lay-in
panels.
l
Do not position devices behind furniture.
l
The installation area must be clean, free of traffic and excess dust, dry, and well ventilated.
l
The installation area must be within the temperature ranges of 10°C and 40°C/50°F and
104°F.
l
The installation area must be between 20% and 80% non-condensing relative humidity.
l
For best RF coverage, the device must be mounted vertically on walls.

How to Wall Mount the Repeater
For best RF coverage, the device must be mounted vertically on walls.
Caution:
The repeater and external antenna is to be fixed-mounted on indoor permanent structures providing a separation distance of at least 20 cm/8 inches from all persons during
normal operation and must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other
antenna or repeater. The maximum radiated output power is 1W e.i.r.p.
1. Connect the power supply cable to the RJ9 port on the bottom of the repeater.
For repeaters with external antenna, connect the external antenna cable to the antenna connector on the rear side of the repeater and in the same way on the external antenna.
2. Mount the repeater on the wall using the anchors and screws accompanying the product.
3. After installing the repeater you need to power it up.

Programming the Spectralink DECT Repeater with the
Service Tool
The Service Tool is the tool you access from your desktop and use for repeater programming, handset adjustment and software download to the handset and repeater.
The Service Tool identifies the type of repeater, and with this software it is possible to program the
Spectralink DECT Repeater to connect to the Spectralink DECT Radio Infrastructure solutions.
Note:
Before you start programming the repeater, ensure that the repeater is connected to the
computer and the mains.
Numbering of Base Stations and Repeaters in a
Normal Configuration
Note:
Repeater and base station numbers must not be the same. Also, in a situation where
common overlap is present between the actual units, a repeater cannot have a number
that is similar to that of a base station or another repeater. If this occurs, handover
between the different units is not possible.

Spectralink Repeater Installation Guide
Using the Spectralink DECT Repeater
With External Antenna
If coverage is needed in a remote area, synchronization can be established between the main system and a repeater by use of an external antenna. The External Antenna establishes a radio link
between the main system and a Spectralink DECT Repeater.
Note:
Only the Spectralink Spectralink External Antenna is approved along with the Spectralink
DECT Repeater.
The Spectralink DECT Repeater is automatically configured to the external antenna
when connected.
Below is an example of using a Spectralink DECT Repeater with External antenna.
The radio link way must be stable and free of moving objects. The RSSI level of the main system at
the Spectralink DECT Repeater placed remotely must not be lower than 75.
Note:
Inside the area named "radio link" there is no radio coverage for handsets.
If a situation occurs where the primary sync for some reason breaks down, the Spectralink DECT
Repeater will obtain sync on the alternative sync.

Spectralink Repeater Installation Guide
Alternative Synchronization Ways
The Spectralink DECT Repeater with or without external antenna, 4 channels, can be programmed
to obtain synchronization on two radio units (base station, wireless server or repeater).
Note:
The primary sync has priority; the alternative sync is only in use as long as the primary
sync is down.
