Ericsson RBS 6000 architecture

The Ericsson RBS 6000 architecture consists of many different modules, roughly split into two parts:
  • Digital Unit (baseband)
  • Radio Unit (ADC/DAC/PA/Duplexer/Diversity/...)

The two units are interconnected via CPRI using SFP Transceivers (typically fiber optic based). As far as we know, for GSM the CPRI line speed is 2.5Gbps.

A single Digital Unit can drive multiple Radio Units (typically up to 6).
