Protection of radio base stations against lightning discharges
This Recommendation provides a quantitative procedure in order to protect radio base stations (RBS) for wireless access network against lightning discharges. The level of protection is based on the tolerable frequency of damage that is assigned to the RBS by the operator, considering the consequences of service interruption and loss of equipment. The RBS covered by this Recommendation is made up of a shelter or small building to house the equipment and a nearby tower to hold the antennas. The protection procedures include earthing, bonding, shielding and installation of surge protective devices (SPD).
