Ericsson Mini-Link is a series of commercially very successful microwave links.
8 1 admin
9 1 admin
They are used world-wide for back-hauling GSM BTS and UMTS Node-B, i.e. for the
10 1 admin
A-bis and IuB-links.
11 1 admin
12 1 admin
Every microwave link is a point-to-point link.
13 1 admin
14 1 admin
Each side of the link has an IDU (In Door Unit) and ODU (Out Door Unit).

=== IDU (MMU) ===
17 1 admin
The IDU is responsible for transmitting and receiving at the respective microwave frequency (normally 7...38GHz).
18 1 admin
19 1 admin
In the Mini-Link system they are most commonly they are called MMU.
20 1 admin
21 1 admin
There are different types of MMUs, representing the different link speeds of the microwave link, e.g.
22 1 admin
 * MMU 34+2 (1 E3 link at 34 Mbps plus 1 E1 link for mgmt)
23 1 admin
 * MMU 4x2 (4 E1 links at each 2 Mbps)
24 1 admin
25 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
26 1 admin
ODU.

You can see photographs of the interior of a MMU in the following album: http://laforge.gnumonks.org/photoalbum/devices/ericsson_minilink/mmu_34_2/index.html

=== SMU ===
31 5 admin
32 5 admin
The SMU is a unit that aggregates SDH links, e.g. the SAU 16x2 aggregates 16 E1 links into one E3

The SAU can control various site-local digital input and outputs throug the management link.

=== ODU (RAU) ===
42 1 admin
The ODU is contains the actual modem that modulates the E1, E3 or STM-1 link onto the IF (Intermediate Frequency)
43 1 admin
which is put on the coaxial link towards the ODU.
44 1 admin
45 1 admin
Conversely, on a different IF, there is the down-link from the ODU towards the demodulator/decoder in the IDU.
46 1 admin
47 1 admin
In the Mini-Link system, the ODU is commonly called RAU (Radio Access Unit).

51 2 admin
=== IF-Link between IDU and ODU ===
52 2 admin
There are three intermediate frequencies (IFs) that are being used:
53 2 admin
 * Uplink IF at 350 MHz
54 2 admin
 * Downlink IF at 140 MHz
55 2 admin
 * Control IF at low frequency
