Ericsson Mini-Link is a series of commercially very successful microwave links.
5 1 admin
6 1 admin
They are used world-wide for back-hauling GSM BTS and UMTS Node-B, i.e. for the
7 1 admin
A-bis and IuB-links.

9 1 admin
Every microwave link is a point-to-point link.
10 1 admin
11 1 admin
Each side of the link has an IDU (In Door Unit) and ODU (Out Door Unit).

=== IDU ===
14 1 admin
The IDU is responsible for transmitting and receiving at the respective microwave frequency (normally 7...38GHz).
15 1 admin
16 1 admin
In the Mini-Link system they are most commonly they are called MMU.
17 1 admin
18 1 admin
There are different types of MMUs, representing the different link speeds of the microwave link, e.g.
19 1 admin
 * MMU 34+2 (1 E3 link at 34 Mbps plus 1 E1 link for mgmt)
20 1 admin
 * MMU 4x2 (4 E1 links at each 2 Mbps)
21 1 admin
22 1 admin
The MMU has connections for the data links (E1, E3, STM-1, etc.) as well as a coaxial wire connecting it with the
23 1 admin
ODU.
24 1 admin
25 1 admin
=== ODU ===
26 1 admin
The ODU is contains the actual modem that modulates the E1, E3 or STM-1 link onto the IF (Intermediate Frequency)
27 1 admin
which is put on the coaxial link towards the ODU.
28 1 admin
29 1 admin
Conversely, on a different IF, there is the down-link from the ODU towards the demodulator/decoder in the IDU.
30 1 admin
31 1 admin
In the Mini-Link system, the ODU is commonly called RAU (Radio Access Unit).

=== IF-Link between IDU and ODU ===
36 2 admin
There are three intermediate frequencies (IFs) that are being used:
37 2 admin
 * Uplink IF at 350 MHz
38 2 admin
 * Downlink IF at 140 MHz
39 2 admin
 * Control IF at low frequency
