About the Ericsson RBS 2000 Series Base Transceiver Station

The Ericsson RBS 2000 series base transceiver station (BTS) was a GSM network (Global System for Mobile communication) radio base station produced by Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson in the mid-1990s. Referred to by Ericsson as an RBS (Radio Base Station), the RBS 2000 family incorporated models such as the 2102, 2103, 2106, 2206 and 2207 amongst others. 

The Ericsson RBS 2000 Series Base Transceiver Station formed part of Ericsson’s wider WCDMA Radio Access Network, UTRAN portfolio, which featured other base stations including the 3000 series. Supporting many GSM data services including GPRS and EDGE on both 2G and 3G networks, the Ericsson 2000 BTS series was designed to be flexible and adaptable.

Capable of using up to 12 transceivers depending on the configuration, the Ericsson 2000 series base transceiver station could support an equal number of carriers. This allowed service providers to expand their network capacity as demand increased, effectively future-proofing their networks. 

The RBS 2000 was a relatively compact and lightweight unit, meaning it could easily be deployed by service providers in a variety of locations including rural or densely populated urban environments. Depending on the model, the 2000 series could be deployed in both indoor and outdoor environments, further increasing the flexibility of this already versatile hardware. 

To help increase the appeal of this BTS, the Ericsson RBS 2000 series, was designed to be incredibly energy efficient. It utilised low power transceivers, and also supported renewable energy sources such as solar. These factors made this BTS a cost-effective and environmentally friendly service option for many service providers. 

The Ericsson RBS 2000 Series base transceiver station also came with a selection of network management tools to enhance the operation and maintenance of the unit. Service providers were able to remotely monitor and manage the status of the BTS. In turn, this made it possible to diagnose issues that presented themselves and conduct maintenance in a timely manner, therefore minimising network downtime. 

The Ericsson 2000 Series BTS was also compatible with later models released into the same family such as the Ericsson RBS 6000. This allowed existing infrastructure to be combined with newer equipment, further enhancing the capabilities of the network and extending its overall functionality.
