What is Fiber to the Antenna (FTTA) and why does it matter?

www.premier-cable.net


FTTA is a broadband network architecture in which high frequency and power electronics are taken from the base station and located at the remote radio head (RRH), a fiber optic based system that converts digital signals to analog, close to the antenna and fiber Fiber optics are used to connect the RRH to the base station in old and new antennas.

Why Fiber?

 

 

Because increasing bandwidth means more antennas, which means more cables. Coaxial cables add more weight and windage to the tower than the tower is designed to handle.

 

 

Another advantage of FTTA is that it allows the tower amplifier to be eliminated, as the RRH is replaced at the top of the antenna and generates the signal from there. FTTA also allows the RRH located on top of the antenna to be cooled with natural air without the need for throttling the system, reducing energy consumption.

 

 

More importantly

 

 

The FTTA architecture allows the baseband unit (BBU) to be located where it is most convenient, rather than being forced to be fixed on the RRH.
