What are the components of a base station?

The base station consists of four parts:


5G Base Station Antenna Cable



1. Antenna system


Generally, there are multiple antennas installed on the top of the base station, which are mainly responsible for the transmission and reception of signals, and are connected to the RRU.



2. RRU (Remote Radio Frequency Unit)


RRU can be divided into multiple sectors for the transmission of 2G, 3G, 4G and even 5G signals. Both signal generation and extraction of radio signals take place here.



3. BBU (Base Band Unit)


The BBU is placed in the equipment room and connected to the RRU through an optical fiber. It is the core of the base station and the unit that processes the original signal.



4. Physical support


It mainly includes power system, backup battery (to prevent power failure), transmission equipment, air conditioning system (to maintain the optimal temperature for normal operation), etc.



Based on the above components, they work together to form a base station for transmitting signals. Multiple base stations form a tightly connected network to provide users with seamless coverage of network services.
