The axs 900R 1350 SCS solution is a complete Small Cell or Radio Transmission solution focussed on sub terrestrial deployment of the active equipment and lightweight and strong composite poles for the antennae clusters. It brings the reduced space requirements of LTE and 5G, capacity and coverage upliftment, into a compact form factor with all the cooling and electrification needs in one underground secure vault.
The axs 900R 1350 SCS can house multiple Remote Radio Units or other network transmission hardware. The composite pole can house sectorized or omni directional antennae and the axs900R 1350 SCS, in a stand alone configuration, can house a street level antenna in its lid.
The management of heat energy is controlled by the internal infrastructure and the enhanced heat transfer management system allows for up to 3kW of equipment housed inside. The batteries are native 48VDC with zero-heat generation and their control circuits are built in which drastically decreases space requirements.
The electrification is done by direct connection into the grid and has connectivity for the battery backup and photovoltaic systems. The system incorporates electrical power supplies and inverters to cater for AC or DC supply to active equipment that would be required for the future connected world.
It is a water tight axs 900R 1350 SCS, constructed in light weight composite materials to protect and secure the valuable equipment it will house.
A full range of IoT sensors will detect and report on security, operational parameters, electrical & battery supply and environmental changes. The IoT system will also manage access control and will report in real time all activity associated with authorised or unauthorised access. Additional report parameters incorporate the RS232 connections from the individual active equipment housed inside the axs 900R 1350 SCS.
The core design philosophy for the axs 900R 1350 SCS is to combat network outages due to vandalism and theft. Some components like the batteries cannot be used once removed from the network. Complex IP addressable connectivity is required to re-enable these components once removed after installation.
This versatility of deployment and the multi role operations characteristics of the axs 900R 1350 SCS makes this an asset in any network, from radio back haul for FTTx networks to complex duties in Carrier Cellular networks.
The axs 900R 1350 SCS Manhole
The axs 900R 1350 SCS Manhole is a modification of the market leading Telecommunications Manhole. The manhole is modified to make the walls water tight and the additional volume in the extended portion, is sealed from view to create a secure void for the storage of batteries.
The cavity created by this construction is 900mm Ø and 1.35m deep. The battery equipment will be housed on the base of the cube with a false floor cover installed to obscure them. It will present as a floor in the cube. Internal routing and port access entries facilitate both external fibre and electrical cable as well as all antennae cabling.
Internal mounting for equipment is done on the mount platforms and the batteries are placed and connected in the void below the false floor.
Port entries for the cabling is double sealed with compression multi-glands with capacity for a wide range of ducts and cables while providing adequate sealing.
