QRTB 2.11.5 - New eNB software has been released!

QRTB 2.11.5 for Nova 436Q/430 and Neutrino 430 TDD base stations has been released. This version mainly adds Spectrum Analyzer, CSG (Closed Subscriber Group), and supports S1 handover between Cell1 & Cell2 in DC mode.

:warning: NOTICE: When using the Spectrum Analyzer feature, the eNB will automatically change carrier mode to Single Carrier (only mode supported by SA now). The carrier mode will not automatically switch back when leaving Spectrum Analyzer mode and will require the carrier mode to be manually set back to Dual Carrier or Carrier Aggregation (if eNB wasn’t already previously set to Single Carrier). This issue will be resolved in the next software release.

Supported Hardware:

  • Nova 436Q (4*1W Outdoor eNB | mBS31001)
  • Nova 430e (4*250mW Outdoor eNB | pBS3101SE)
  • Nova 430i (4*250mW Outdoor eNB | pBS3101S)
  • Neutrino 430 (4*250mW Indoor eNB | pBS31010)
