The Baicells Nova 430i is an advanced two-carrier outdoor eNodeB (eNB) compliant with 3GPP LTE TDD technology. This 4x250mW eNB can operate in Carrier Aggregation (CA) mode or Dual Carrier (DC)/split mode.
The Baicells Nova 430i is available in two variants: The Nova430e, which has one 4-port or two 2-port external antennas, and the Nova430i, which has four integrated high-gain LTE antennas.
In CA mode, contiguous or non-contiguous channels are aggregated to provide up to 40 MHz bandwidth. This doubles the down-link capacity when CA mode is used with all Cat6/7 or higher user equipment.
In DC mode, each carrier is treated as an independent cell, supporting 96+96 users, with each supporting 5, 10, 15, or 20 MHz bandwidth. Using a Nova430e/430i in DC mode simplifies and streamlines the deployment of split sectors.
In addition to CA and DC mode options, HaloB (an embedded MME option) is available on the Nova430e/Baicells Nova 430i as part of the base software. The Baicells patented HaloB solution migrates the necessary core network functions to the eNB.
This product comes with a standard product warranty; an extended warranty is available.
