Basics of PoTDM

Alcatel-Lucent Managed Solutions India Ltd. 21-Mar-2014

Feature such OSC or EDAP Enhancement can be fully introduced without increasing the backhaul BW requirement.  This Feature offers significant BW Savings in comparison with Traditional TDM Transport.BW Requirement is no longer constant and depends on actual need. .All Traffic is pooled to the same BW.  Offering Significant Saving In OPEX due to cost effective physical Media.  A-bis BW can be gained with PoTDM : -Removing unnecessary bits and header information .Benefits  Operator Can utilize the existing installed TDM Infrastructure.  Cost Reduction Due to Simplified Operations: Like Very Minimal Configuration changes in A-bis Interface in case air interface is changed for example BTS in upgraded with New TRXs.There are no Pre-defined limitations except the Total BW provided by Physical Links.Saving due to shorter and less silence frames.Packet A-bis Over TDM . . .  BW Can be shared by CS-PS Traffic.


• Up to 11 logical mcPCUs can be connected to one mcETP.  One ETP card converts up to 8192 CS channels from A-ter/TRAU to Packet A-bis packets and vice versa. • Up to 8 logical PCU2-Es can be connected to one ETPT. In Packet A-bis over Ethernet. OMUSIG) between BCSUs and BTS sites is not going through ETPE in contrary to the Packet A-bis over TDM where the A-bis signaling is going through ETPT.ETP Capacity Information:  ETP can only handle either Packet A-bis over Ethernet connections or Packet A-bis over TDM connection at the same time.  ETP can handle certain maximum amount of logical PCUs.  The mcETP can handle a maximum of 1100 BCFs. . • Up to 32 logical PCU2-Ds can be connected to one ETPT. A-bis signaling (TRXSIG.  ETP can handle maximum 256 BCFs.
