Safety Considerations - General
For the following safety considerations, "Instrument" means the BreezeMAX units'
components and their cables.
Caution
To avoid electrical shock, do not perform any servicing unless you are qualified to
do so.
Line Voltage
Before connecting this instrument to the power line, make sure that the voltage of
the power source matches the requirements of the instrument.
Radio
The instrument transmits radio energy during normal operation. To avoid possible
harmful exposure to this energy, do not stand or work for extended periods of time

Voice and Networking Gateways
1.3
Voice and Networking Gateways
The following Gateways are currently available from Alvarion:
„ IDU-NG-4D1W: A Networking Gateway with advanced routing capabilities that
serves also as an IDU for the PRO-S CPE, supporting 4 data ports and 1
Wireless LAN port.
„ VG-1D1V: A stand-alone (external) Voice Gateway, connecting to the Ethernet
port of the CPE and supporting 1 data port and 1 POTS port.
„ VG-1D2V: A stand-alone (external) Voice Gateway, connecting to the Ethernet
port of the CPE and supporting 1 data port and 2 POTS ports.
Details on installing, managing and using the Voice Gateways and the Wireless
Networking Gateway are provided separately in the relevant manuals.
These Gateways incorporate an advanced protocol (DRAP) for automatic
registration and allocation of wireless link resource.
1.3.1
DRAP (Dynamic Resources Allocation
Protocol)
DRAP is a protocol based on IP/UDP between the Gateway (installed behind the
SU) and the BreezeMAX system. The protocol provides an auto-discovery
mechanism for the Gateway, so no specific configuration is required and the
Gateway can automatically locate and register with the BreezeMAX base station.
The protocol uses a few simple messages enabling a Voice Gateway to request
resources when calls are made, and the BreezeMAX to dynamically allocate them.
Using the DRAP solution has the following advantages:
„ Maintain telephony toll quality over the wireless network - dynamically
allocate Continuous Grant (CG) connections for active calls, maintaining the
QoS and low jitter needed for toll-quality voice services.
„ Allocate Continuous Grant dedicated bandwidth only for the duration of the
call - the air resources are allocated and released according to the DRAP
messages, which are based on the VoIP signaling. This dynamic allocation
ensures efficient use of the air resources.
BreezeMAX CPEs Product Manual
7
Chapter 1 - System Description
„ Prevent callers from placing calls if a sector is overloaded - the operator can
control and limit the maximum number of concurrent calls per wireless sector
and per end user voice gateway. Thus, the operator has complete control of its
network and the resources in it.
„ Automatic support of Codec changing in a VoIP call - the DRAP messages
update the BreezeMAX equipment on any Codec change or subsequent
bandwidth allocation change during the call, hence the exact required
bandwidth is always provided. This is essential in fax transmissions where the
call might begin with one Codec and switch to another to accommodate the fax
transmission.
„ VoIP stack is always in synch with the wireless transport - as the DRAP is
integrated into the VoIP stack all calls are terminated according to the VoIP
standard. Even if no resources are available, the voice gateway receives an
appropriate message from the BreezeMAX system and sends the required
signaling message according to the VoIP standard used.
1.3.2
IDU-NG-4D1W Wireless Networking Gateway
IDU
Alvarion's Wireless Networking Gateway enables operators and service providers
using Alvarion's BWA system to provide subscribers with a number of broadband
services transparently.
The Wireless Networking Gateway IDU together with the SU-ODU comprises an
SU that provides data connections to the
Base Station. The four 10/100Base-T
Ethernet ports connect to the user's data
equipment, providing comprehensive
routing functionality and supporting various
security features. User's data equipment
equipped with either IEEE 802.11b (11M) or
IEEE 802.11g (54M) compatible wireless
adapters can connect to the unit via its built-in Wireless LAN port, functioning as
an Access Point.
The Wireless Networking Gateway IDU is powered from the mains and connects to
the ODU via a Category 5E Ethernet cable. This cable carries the Ethernet data
between the two units as well as power (54 VDC) and control signals to the ODU.
It also carries status indications from the ODU.

System Description
Voice and Networking Gateways
The Wireless Networking Gateway is designed for remote management and
supervision using either the built-in internal web server or SNMP.
The Wireless Networking Gateway is easily updated and upgraded as it supports
remote software and configuration file download.
1.3.3
VG-1D1V and VG-1D2V Voice Gateways
Alvarion's Voice Gateways enable operators and service providers to offer end
users a combination of IP-telephony and broadband data services.
IP-telephony services are supported for standard analog phones or G3 fax
machines. The VG-1D1V has a single POTS interface, and the VG-1D2V has two
POTS interfaces. The Voice Gateways is built on the H.323 and SIP standards and
support both narrow (compressed) and wideband (uncompressed) speech codecs,
silence suppression with comfort noise, line echo cancellation and regional
telephone parameters. Class 5 services such as call waiting and 3-party call are
also supported.
Up to 3 telephones can be connected in series to each telephone port. Daisy
chaining of Voice Gateways enables the service provider to offer certain end users,
for example small offices, additional telephone numbers.
The Voice Gateway also supports Internet access or any other Ethernet based
services. The unit can be installed behind a
router/NAT due to NAT traversal support
allowing signaling as well as voice packets
to correctly reach Softswitch or Gatekeeper
for bi-directional call initiations. The
Gateway can handle up to 16 simultaneous
VLANs, enabling the operator to offer different services to different end users
behind the unit.
The Voice Gateways are designed for remote management and supervision using
either the built-in internal web server or SNMP.
The Voice Gateways are easily updated and upgraded as they support remote
software and configuration file download.

CPE.
2.1.1
ODU Installation Requirements
2.1.1.1
Packing List
„ ODU
„ Pole mounting kit
2.1.1.2
Additional Installation Requirements
The following items are also required to install the ODU:
„ Indoor-to-outdoor Category 5E Ethernet cable with two shielded RJ-45
connectors* (see Section 2.1.3 for details on approved cables and maximum
length), and an RJ-45 connectors crimping tool.
„ For units that connect to an external antenna (SE model): Antenna* and RF
cable* for connecting the antenna to the ODU.
„ SAU* (SU Alignment Unit) for antenna alignment and status verification.
„ Grounding cable with an appropriate termination.
„ Installation tools and materials, including appropriate means (e.g. a 1" to 4"
pole) for installing the ODU (and antenna where applicable).
2.1.1.3
Optional Items
„ Tilt Pole Mounting kit*.
„ To connect directly to the ODU for configuration/performance monitoring: A

2.1.2
Guidelines for Positioning the ODU
This section provides key guidelines for selecting the optimal installation locations
for the ODU.
CAUTION
ONLY experienced installation professionals who are familiar with local building and safety codes
and, wherever applicable, are licensed by the appropriate government regulatory authorities should
install outdoor units and antennas.
Failure to do so may void the BreezeMAX product warranty and may expose the end user or
Service Provider to legal and financial liabilities. Alvarion and its resellers or distributors are not
liable for injury, damage or regulation violations associated with the installation of Outdoor Units or
antennas.
Select the optimal locations for the equipment using the following guidelines:
„ The ODU should be mounted on a 1"-4" pole. Its location should enable easy
access to the unit and its connectors for installation and testing.
„ The higher the placement of the antenna, the better the achievable link
quality.
„ The antenna should be installed to provide a direct, or near line of sight with
the Base Station antenna. The antenna should be aligned to face the general
direction of the Base Station.
„ In some cases it might be necessary to up/down-tilt the antenna. An optional
Tilt accessory for the ODU providing a tilt range of +/-15° is available from
Alvarion. The tilt option might be necessary to either improve the link
conditions or, if the SU is too close to the Base Station, to reduce the receive
signals strength. As a rule of thumb, if the SU is located at a distance of less
than 300 meters from the Base Station, it is recommended to up-tilt the
antenna by approximately 10° to 15° (especially in line-of-sight conditions) to
avoid saturation of the receivers by too strong signals.
„ Outdoor units with a connection to an external antenna should be installed as
close as possible to the antenna.

Fast Configuration and Antenna Alignment
(PRO-S CPE)
A special Y-cable, available from Alvarion, enables to connect a Pocket PC (or a
portable PC) directly to the IDU COM port of the ODU. This enables the installer to
perform the entire process of configuring basic parameters, aligning the antenna
and verifying proper operation of the unit right after completing the installation,
minimizing the number of times the installer must climb to the roof.
To use a Pocket PC/Notebook for completing the entire installation process on the
roof:
1
Disconnect the IDU-ODU cable from the ODU.
2
Connect the Y-cable according to the following drawing:
Figure 3-1: Connecting the Y-Cable
56
Commissioning
Aligning the PRO-S CPE’s Antenna
3
From the Pocket PC/Notebook, connect to the SU and complete the process of
configuring basic parameters.
4
Verify that the the unit is synchronized with a Base Station. If the SU is not
synchronized with a Base Station, ensure that all parameters are configured
properly. If the unit is still not synchronized with a Base Station, improve the
quality of the link by changing the direction of the antenna or by placing the
antenna at a higher or in an alternate location.
5
Rotate (and/or tilt if applicable) the ODU/antenna until the maximum link
quality (SNR and RSSI) reading is achieved. If you encounter prolonged
difficulty in achieving the expected link quality, try to improve the reception
quality by placing the antenna at a higher point or in an alternate location.
NOTE
Ensure that the front of the antenna is always facing the Base Station. However, in certain
conditions, such as when the line of sight to the Base Station is hampered, better reception may be
achieved using a reflected signal. In this case, the antenna is not necessarily directed toward the
Base Station.
6
Secure the ODU/antenna firmly to the pole.
CAUTION
In some cases, the antenna may need to be tilted to ensure that the level at which the SU receives
transmissions from the AU (and vice versa) is not too high. When the RSSI reading is higher than
-20 dBm, the received signal level is too high (saturation). This must be avoided, preferably by
up-tilting the antenna. As a rule of thumb, if the SU is located at a distance of less than 300 meters

Verify that the WLNK (LED 1) indicator is on, indicating that the unit is
synchronized with the Base Station. If the SU is not synchronized with the
Base Station, ensure that all parameters are configured properly. If the unit is
still not synchronized with the Base Station, improve the quality of the link by
changing the direction of the antenna or by placing the antenna at a higher
point or in an alternate location.
5
Rotate (and/or tilt if applicable) the ODU/antenna until the maximum link
quality reading is achieved. If you encounter prolonged difficulty in achieving
the expected link quality, try to improve the reception quality by placing the
antenna at a higher point or in an alternate location.
NOTE
Ensure that the front of the antenna is always facing the Base Station. However, in certain
conditions, such as when the line of sight to the Base Station is hampered, better reception may be
achieved using a reflected signal. In this case, the antenna is not necessarily directed toward the
Base Station.

device that connects to a LAN. Other devices in the network use these
addresses to locate specific ports in the network and to create and
update routing tables and data structures. MAC addresses are 6bytes
long and are controlled by the IEEE.
MIR
Maximum Information Rate. Specifies the maximum rate of
information that can be available to a user. The MIR is used by the
traffic policing mechanism to prevent users from sending excess traffic
to the network.
NA
Not Available or Not Applicable
NAT
Network Address Translation. Basic Network Address Translation
(Basic NAT) is a method by which IP addresses are mapped from one
group to another, transparent to end users. Network Address Port
Translation, or NAPT is a method by which many network addresses
and their TCP/UDP ports are translated into a single network address
and its TCP/UDP ports. Together, these two operations, referred to as
traditional NAT, provide a mechanism to connect a realm with private
addresses to an external realm with globally unique registered
addresses.
NIC
Network Interface Card. An expansion board you insert into a
computer (or a built-in component) that enables the computer to
connect to a network. Most NICs are designed for a particular type of
network, protocol, and media, although some can serve multiple
networks.

NRT
Non Real Time. is very similar to the Real-Time polling service except
that connections may utilize random access transmit opportunities for
sending bandwidth requests. These Non Real Time Variable Bit Rate
(NRT-VBR) services, such as file transfer and Internet access with a
minimum guaranteed rate, are characterized by requirement for a
guaranteed rate, but can tolerate longer delays and are rather
insensitive to jitter. Service parameters include CIR, Committed Time
(CT), and MIR that limit the rate as otherwise bandwidth-intensive
services may expand to occupy full bandwidth.
ODU
Outdoor Unit
OFDM
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing: A method for
multiplexing signals, which divides the available bandwidth into a
series of frequencies known as tones. Orthogonal tones do not interfere
with each other when the peak of one tone corresponds with the null.
The rapid switching, frequency-hopping technique is intended to allow
more robust data service.
PDA
Personal Digital Assistant. A handheld computing device.
PER
Packet Error Rate. In a digital transmission, PER is the percentage of
packets with errors divided by the total number of packets that have
been transmitted, received or processed over a given time period.
PHY
PHYsical Layer. The physical, or lowest, layer of the OSI Network
Model. In a wireless network, the PHY defines parameters such as data
rates, modulation method, signaling parameters, transmitter/receiver
synchronization, etc. Within an actual radio implementation, the PHY
corresponds to the radio front end and baseband signal processing
sections.
POTS
Plain Old Telephone System. A basic analog telephone equipment.
PPPoE
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. PPPoE relies on two widely
accepted standards: PPP and Ethernet. PPPoE is a specification for
connecting the users on an Ethernet to the Internet through a
common broadband medium, such as a single DSL line, wireless
device or cable modem. All the users over the Ethernet share a
common connection, so the Ethernet principles supporting multiple
users in a LAN combines with the principles of PPP, which apply to
serial connections.

QAM
Quadrature Amplitude Modulation. A technique used in wireless
applications to double the available bandwidth by combining two
amplitude-modulated signals. The two combined signals differ in
phase by 90 degrees; this technique doubles the bandwidth by
combining the two signals at the source before transmission,
transmitting digital data at a rate of 4 bits per signal change.
QoS
Quality of Service. Measure of performance for a transmission system
that reflects its transmission quality and service availability.
QPSK
Quadrature Phase Shift Keying. A data transfer technique used in
coaxial cable networks that sends data using modulating signals. Four
different phases represent data, with each signal's information
determined by the signal before it. For example, if a phase stays the
same from one signal to the other, the information has not changed.
RF
Radio frequency. An AC signal of high enough frequency to be used for
wireless communications.
RSSI
Received Signal Strength Indicator. A signal or circuit that indicates
the strength of the incoming (received) signal in a receiver.
R&TTE
Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment. The R&TTE
Directive 1999/5/EC governs the marketing and use of R&TTE
equipment. With the exception of a few categories of equipment, the
Directive covers all equipment, which uses the radio frequency
spectrum. It also covers all terminal equipment attached to public
telecommunication networks.
RT
Real Time. Real Time service is designed to meet the needs of Real
Time Variable Bit Rate (RT-VBR) like services characterized by
requirements for guaranteed rate and delay such as streaming video or
audio. These services are dynamic in nature, but offer periodic
dedicated requests opportunities to meet real-time requirements.
Because the subscriber equipment issues explicit requests, the
protocol overhead and latency is increased, but capacity is granted
only according to the real needs of the connection. Service parameters
include CIR and CT.

SIP
Session Initiation Protocol. An application-layer control IETF protocol
that can establish, modify, and terminate multimedia sessions such as
Internet telephony calls (VoIP). SIP can also invite participants to
already existing sessions, such as multicast conferences. Media can be
added to (and removed from) an existing session. SIP transparently
supports name mapping and redirection services, which supports
personal mobility - users can maintain a single externally visible
identifier regardless of their network location.
SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol. A network management
protocol that provides a means to monitor and control network
devices, and to manage configurations, statistics collection,
performance, and security. SNMP works by sending messages, called
protocol data units (PDUs), to different parts of a network.
SNMP-compliant devices, called agents, store data about themselves in
Management Information Bases (MIBs) and return this data to the
SNMP requesters.
SNR
Signal to Noise Ratio. The ratio of the amplitude of a desired analog or
digital data signal to the amplitude of noise in a transmission channel
at a specific point in time. SNR is typically expressed logarithmically in
decibels (dB). SNR measures the quality of a transmission channel or a
signal over a network channel. The greater the ratio, the easier it is to
identify and subsequently isolate and eliminate the effects of noise.
SNR also is abbreviated as S/N.
SU
Subscriber Unit
TCP
Transmission Control Protocol. Connection-oriented transport layer
protocol that provides reliable full-duplex data transmission. TCP is
the part of the TCP/IP suite of protocols that is responsible for forming
data connections between nodes that are reliable, as opposed to IP,
which is connectionless and unreliable.
TCP/IP
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. A set of protocols
developed by the U.S. Department of Defense to allow communication
between dissimilar networks and systems over long distances. TCP/IP
is the de facto standard for data transmission over networks, including
the Internet.
TFTP
Trivial File Transfer Protocol. Simplified version of FTP that allows files
to be transferred from one computer to another over a network,
usually without the use of client authentication.

UDP
User Datagram Protocol. Connectionless transport layer protocol in
the TCP/IP protocol stack. UDP is a simple protocol that exchanges
datagrams without acknowledgments or guaranteed delivery, requiring
that error processing and retransmission be handled by other
protocols. UDP is defined in RFC 768.
UL
Up Link
VLAN
Virtual Local Area Network. A group of devices on one or more LANs
that are configured with the same VLAN ID so that they can
communicate as if they were attached to the same wire, when in fact
they are located on a number of different LAN segments. Used also to
create separation between different user groups.
VoIP
Voice over Internet Protocol. Provides an advanced digital
communications network that bypasses the traditional public
switched telephone system and uses the Internet to transmit voice
communication. VoIP enables people to use the Internet as the
transmission medium for telephone calls by sending voice data in
packets using IP rather than by traditional circuit switched
transmissions of the PSTN.
WEEE
Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment. The purpose of Directive
2002/96/EC on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is,
as a first priority, the prevention of waste electrical and electronic
equipment (WEEE), and in addition, the reuse, recycling and other
forms of recovery of such wastes so as to reduce the disposal of waste.
It also seeks to improve the environmental performance of all operators
involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronic equipment, e.g.
producers, distributors and consumers and in particular those
operators directly involved in the treatment of waste electrical and
electronic equipment.
WL (or W/L)
Wireless LAN
WIMAX
The name commonly given to the IEEE 802.16 standard.
Specifications for fixed broadband wireless metropolitan access
networks (MANs) that use a point-to-multipoint architecture. WIMAX
supports very high bit rates in both uploading to and downloading
from a base station up to a distance of 30 miles.
