As mobile usage continues to increase, service providers are faced with the challenge of optimizing
and expanding their wireless networks to provide new and existing services. ADC’s ClearGain®
Tower-Mounted Amplifiers (TMAs) minimize the cost of network expansion and improve quality of
service, allowing service providers to increase profitability from new and existing services.
The ClearGain TMAs improve signal quality by boosting the uplink signal of a mobile system to
increase receiver performance and improve overall coverage.
Features:
Spec Sheet

• Highly advanced LNA amplifies RX signal for improved receiver performance
and increase in coverage
• Dual duplex feature reduces the number of feeder cable runs by providing simultaneous
operation of TX and RX with low TX loss
• Full Band feature provides amplification of the entire band
• Advanced filtering maintains the lowest possible noise figure for improved quality of service
• Slim, stackable design conserves tower space and reduces tower-related costs
• Seamless aluminum sleeve construction protects components from the elements

ClearGain® Tower-Mounted Amplifiers
Introduction
System Overview
Unacceptable network quality is one of the main
reasons for mobile subscriber churn. With industry
churn at their current rates, a service provider’s
entire customer base could be lost in as few as
three years. The cost of acquiring new subscribers
to replace the existing customer base can be
enormous. Improvements in quality of service can
directly impact a service provider’s profitability
through the cost savings associated with
increased subscriber retention and the additional
revenue gained from increased billable minutes
of use resulting from improved signal quality.
The ClearGain TMA system is modular, consisting
of a Masthead Unit (MHU), a Power Distribution
Unit (PDU) and a Bias-T Unit. This system provides
full compatibility with all base stations. The
ClearGain MHU offers dual duplex operation and
incorporates a highly advanced fixed-gain, lownoise amplifier (LNA) and high-performance filters
for added reliability. The MHU amplifies each band
to maximize signal quality and optimize coverage.
While subscribers are willing to pay a premium
for data services, improved quality of service is
necessary to provide new data services. Due to
the tradeoff between bit rate and bandwidth
inherent to data services, improved signal
quality is required to achieve the same level of
performance at even higher data rates. ADC’s
ClearGain Tower-Mounted Amplifiers help provide
this improvement in signal quality.
TMAs improve signal quality by boosting the
uplink (RX) signal of a mobile system immediately
after the antenna. This compensates for the loss
in signal strength that occurs when the signal
is passed through the coaxial feeder cable to
the base transceiver station (BTS) at the base
of the tower. ClearGain TMAs perform this
amplification with the lowest possible noise
contribution, resulting in a substantial increase
in receiver performance and an improvement in
overall coverage. These improvements in quality
of service allow mobile
subscribers to place more
calls, make longer calls,
and successfully complete
Antenna
calls in an expanded
geographic area, resulting
in increased revenue.
The ClearGain MHU features a slim, lightweight
design. This allows two ClearGain TMAs to
be mounted with one set of brackets thereby,
conserving valuable and costly tower space
and reducing clutter on the tower. The TMA
is protected with a strong, aluminum sleeve
construction designed to ensure superior weather
protection and resistance to corrosion, resulting in
increased reliability.
In the ClearGain TMA system, DC power is
supplied to the MHU from a ClearGain PDU. The
PDU also provides alarming and monitoring of the
feeder cable and up to six MHUs from a single
unit. The flexible design of the ClearGain PDU
allows it to be rack- or wall-mounted on the side
of a BTS cabinet.
An external Bias-T Unit is used in conjunction
with the ClearGain PDU. The Bias-T inserts DC
power onto the coaxial cable and extracts alarm
and monitoring signals from the coaxial cable.

Singlemode and Dual Mode 800/1900 MHz Power Distribution Unit
Time and space are important considerations when selecting and installing wireless components at base
transceiver station sites. The simple, compact design of ADC’s ClearGain Power Distribution Unit (PDU) is
intended to help service providers save both. From a compact unit that is easily mounted on a wall or a
rack, ClearGain PDUs provide power and alarming for ADC’s tower-mounted amplifiers.
Features:
• Provides power and alarm functions for on-site monitoring of masthead units (MHUs)
• Monitors condition of feeder cable
• Wall- or rack-mountable to fit available space
• LED indicators for alarm functions
• Simple, compact design allows for easy installation and connections
The ClearGain PDU is an integrated unit that provides power and alarm functions for the ClearGain
TMA system. The ClearGain Singlemode PDU provides power for up to six single frequency TMAs. For
dual band systems, the ClearGain Dual Mode PDU provides power for up to six dual band TMAs or
twelve multi-frequency systems that amplify a single frequency.
The PDU monitors the current of the MHU. If an MHU fails, the ClearGain PDU gives an alarm
indication. The ClearGain PDU also monitors the condition of the feeder cable. Alarm indicators identify
failure in the feeder cable or MHUs and in which MHU the failure occurred, providing fast and easy onsite diagnostics. The flexible design of ClearGain PDUs allows them to be rack-mounted or mounted
indoors on the wall or on the side of a BTS cabinet.
An external Bias-T unit is used in conjunction with the PDU and is designed to connect directly into the
BTS coaxial connector. Bias-T units are available with various connector types, with gas tube arrestors for
lightning protection on the ANT and MHU ports. Quarter wave stub lightning protection is integrated on
the BTS port of the Bias-T units.
