STARMAX 6000 16E

Overview

The EION StarMAX 6000 16e Series base stations can deliver an integrated and customized wireless broadband solution based on the IEEE 802.16e-2005 standard. The 6000 Series 16e platform is a high-capacity and modular platform designed to grow as a network grows. Network operators can deliver innovative fixed, nomadic and mobile broadband Triple Play services as a steppingstone to a full 4G mobile broadband solution.

    The StarMAX 6400 macro base station can fully support fixed, nomadic and mobile broadband services in a modular 4U chassis that allows sector growth with up to four WiMAX blades supporting eight STC/MRC sectors.

    The Star4G 6400 supports 2x2 MIMO and beam-forming technologies to deliver incremental capacity increases as your business services develop. View a 3D Model of the StarMAX Base Station.

    The StarMAX 6100 base station is a more compact, stackable unit in a 1U design with full performance.

    Each 6100 base station can support up to two sectors, so a typical six-sector configuration can be supported with three Star4G 6100s in a 3U rack space—a fraction of the space required by other solutions.

    The Star4G 6100 delivers all the capabilities of the modular StarMAX 6400 base station, including MIMO diversity within each sector.

WIRELESS SERVICE GATEWAY (WSG)
  • Innovation Delivers Performance
  • Distributed Architecture
  • Highlights

The innovative approach taken in the design of EION Wireless’ WSG utilizes field-proven Juniper routers to be used for 4G purposes while retaining all the current functionality of the Juniper Networks® routers in the network. With the WSG, both core routing needs and packet processing needs for 4G wireless systems are met at the same time in the same network, without compromise.

The unique design of the WSG delivers a solution that can grow as the network grows. The WSG starts with 5K subscribers and can be upgraded to support hundreds of thousands of active subscribers.

The EION Wireless Services Gateway decomposes the ASN-GW architecture into separate control and data/bearer paths that are processed by separated and specialized systems. EION Wireless has developed a unique interface between the specialized systems that support control and management between the separate processing paths. This patent-pending interface was rewarded 1st Place “Emerging Technology Award” for 4G Services at the CTIA Wireless 2009 Conference.

The Control path processing is performed by the ASN -Controller (ASN-C), and the Data path processing is performed by the WSG-Router (WSG-R) using widely deployed and reliable M Series routers.

With the division of bearer and control channel functionality, the EION Wireless ASN-GW solution has scalability to support even the largest Tier 1 service provider networks in the world. The EION Wireless ASN-GW solution provides significant latency reductions that enable advanced voice applications as well as improved handover decision and control.

GPS SYNCHRONIZATION

Overview

The StarMAX product portfolio provides all the necessary equipment for network synchronization. Regardless of the size of the network, the type of services delivered – either fixed or mobile – and the level of redundancy.

EION Wireless offers a StarMAX solution that is reliable and and cost effective.

    Regardless of the size of the network, the type of services delivered – either fixed or mobile – and the level of redundancy

    EION Wireless offers a StarMAX solution that is reliable and and cost effective.

    The StarMAX 6080 Synchronization board is a fundamental building block of a StarMAX base station. The 6080 ensures synchronization of your WiMAX network from different synchronization sources.

    In the event the GPS signal is lost, the 6080 operates in hold over mode allowing the base station to stay synchronized either 8, or 24 hours depending on the version selected.

    The board can be installed in StarMAX 6400 or StarMAX 6100 base station chassis. The unit can select between a 1PPS signal or 10MHz reference clock as the input reference synchronization signal.

    As the most cost-effective solution, the GPS satellite network can be used as the source of 1PPS signal source for the StarMAX 6080.

    StarMAX 6080 has a built-in GPS receiver and requires only an external GPS antenna, such as the StarMAX 4931, to be full function operation.

    An optional External GPS receiver, such as the StarMAX 4930 can be used, or even in parallel with the StarMAX 4931 antenna for reference signal redundancy.

    For network providers, which are already using network synchronization, 10MHz reference clock is the optimal solution.

    Integrated GPS receiver

    4 front and backplane accessiblesynchronization outputs

    3 different reference clock inputs; GPS antenna, GPS receiver (1PPS) and 10MHz clock

    8 or 24 hour holdover with less than 7 uS phase shift
