Backbone Microwave Technical Proposal

After deeply studying and considering about the real requirement of MTNs Backbone network,
Huawei separate the backbone network to two types:
Type 1: STM-4 backbone Link from Juba to Malakal to Rank, totally 32 sites, 31 hops microwave.
This link will aggregate other backbone and access microwave link server, carry the BTS/NodeB
service alone this link and make the carry Malakal and Bors BSC service to Juba. Considering
the high capacity and stability requirement, Huawei proposes NEC 5000S to construct this link.
NEC is huaweis cooperator in backbone microwave field, Huawei has richful experience in
delivery NECs microwave. Huawei already delivery more than 20 Hops microwave link in South
Sudan.

Type 2: 75 E1 links. This link mainly aggregate the access microwave service and BTS/Node B
service along this link and connect to the new backbone microwave link or existing microwave
link. Considering more IP service access, Huawei propose RTN900 IP microwave to build this
link. Considering the performance and extension, Huwei proposal use Andrew dual-polarize
antenna. It is easy to double the transmission capacity without any affection to existing link
service.
2.2.2

3. Huawei Backbone Microwave Solution


Huawei proposes to use NEC5000S to construct the backbone link from Juba to Malakal to
Rank.

3.1 Technical Description for 5000S


NEC 5000S Radio Systems are compatible with the latest SDH standards and will also be enhanced to further SDH
standardization. They include Operation, Administration, Provisioning and Maintenance functions which cover
alarm/status monitoring, switchover control performance monitoring and orderwire.
As link system, NEC provides both 4 - 11GHz long-haul microwave radio. These furnish the transmission
capacity of STM-1.
NEC 5000S SDH microwave radio is designed to maintain the conventional Radio Frequency (RF)
allocation restriction by adopting the optimum modulation scheme, as mentioned below, that makes possible
smooth migration from existing radio system to SDH radio system.
28/29/29.65MHz spacing: 128QAM
40MHz spacing: 64QAM
NEC 5000S SDH microwave radio has following basic specifications:
Capacity : 155.52 Mbps per system
Configuration: N+1 (N: 1-9);
N+0 (N: 1-10);
1+1 Twin path;
1+1 HS
SD Constitution :

IF Combined system (3D SD)

Mounting : 10 system in ETSI Rack including MUX

Even if the existing PDH radio fully utilizes the assignable frequencies in the band, NEC 5000S SDH radio
can be added to the opposite interleaved RF channels of the existing system. NEC 5000S field-proven fully
digital XPIC enables the hybrid transmission of PDH and SDH radio signals on a CO-channel dual-polarization
transmission basis. This means there are no adverse effects regarding the frequency arrangement of the
existing system.

3.3 Frequency Plan


As per the information in the tender document and suggestion from Huawei, we prepared a
frequency plan. Please refer to MICROWAVE TRANSMISSION NETWORK PLANNING
PROPOSAL for detailed information.

4. Huawei IP Radio Solutions


Huawei would like to provide the IP Radio solutions to MTN backhaul and access network, they are:

4.1 QoS Solution


The OptiX RTN 900 can provide Enhanced QoS solutions, which can help operators to simplify the
configuration and get bandwidth fully used.
There is some principle need to follow to get the best solutions.

Simple flow classification (Diffserv domain) is used as much as possible on the UNI side.

The PHB service class is not higher than EF

Some bandwidths are reserved on the NNI side for protocol/DCN packets..

High-priority services at the NNI port cannot occupy all bandwidth..

Service rate is not limited on the NNI side.

Configure shaping on the NNI side when the leased bandwidth is less than the port bandwidth.

Selection of scheduling algorithm

DS domain configuration in complex scenarios.

The following tips are for QOS planning for different QOS requirement

End-to-end guaranteed bandwidth required

The flow classification (simple flow classification or complex flow classification) is selected
based on packet priority classification method.

If simple flow classification is selected, configure the Diffserv domain according to the mapping
between packet priorities and PHB service classes. The mapping should be provided by the
wireless department.

MTN Project

Huawei Confidential

Page 8 of 23

Backbone Microwave Technical Proposal

If the transmission network includes a third-party network, ensure that the bandwidth provided
by the third-party network is not less than the sum of guaranteed bandwidth.

If the bandwidth provided by microwave chain/ring is less than the guaranteed bandwidth,
expand the microwave chain/ring.

.Bandwidth limit required

If the bandwidth of incoming services needs to be limited according to service type, set limit for
services that are classified by means of complex flow classification.

If the bandwidth of outgoing services needs to be limited according to service type, set limit for
services that are classified by means of complex flow classification.

If bandwidth needs to be limited based on PHB service class, set limit for port queues.

Rate limit for egress flow and rate limit for port queue should not be enabled at the same time.

Guaranteed minimum bandwidth for low-priority services

Set limit for the queue that has higher priority than the queue where the service requiring
guaranteed minimum bandwidth.

The following table lists the recommended values for 3GPP services and service forwarding priorities. 3G
services include two types of services, namely, R99 and HSPA. Voice services take the priority of EF, R99 (R4)
data and HSPA-RT services take the priority of AF, and HSPA-NRT services take the priority of BE.

Figure 4.6 PHB Recommendations by 3GPP

We can consider QoS as a simple way, that:

Figure 4.7 Traffic CoS Configuration Policy

If the mapping between Diffserv domain values and PHB service classes provided by the wireless
department is the same as the default mapping on the RTN equipment (DS = 1), Cos does not need
to be configured for the RTN network.

If they are different, Cos needs to be configured for the RTN network. To be specific, change the DS
domain value provided by the wireless department to the default one on the RTN equipment for
incoming services. The intermediate nodes on the RTN network use the default CoS value. Then,
change the default value on the RTN equipment back to the DS domain value provided by the
wireless department for outgoing services.

Figure 4.8 Traffic Shaping Configuration Policy

Configure port shaping based on the bandwidth provided by the third-party network.

As transmission channels, microwave has poorer shaping capability than routers. Therefore, routers
are recommended to perform traffic shaping for downlink data services.

Note: Currently, traffic shaping is performed based on L2 rate limit (20-bytes frame interval and preambles
unaccounted for). Therefore, the actual egress port bandwidth is more than the present value after the
traffic shaping function is enabled.

4.3 Synchronization Solution


As 2G/3G/LTE will co-existing for long time, that TDM and IP will face the similar situation. Huawei
recommended that:
At physical layer, TDM (E1/STM-1) and Sync Eth as well as MW air-interface clock can provide a very good
quality of Frequency synchronization, if there is no application of cross the third party network.
At packet layer, CES ACR, 1588ACR can provide the frequency synchronization cross the network.
At packet layer, if TDD of time/phase synchronization is required, that 1588v2 will be a better way to
provide time/phase synchronization, rather than provide GPS and Bits.
In case of its difficult to deploy 1588v2 solutions, and then GPS/Bits will be the final solutions. Following
Bits are recommended. (Optional quotation)

4.4 DCN Solution


Huawei provide complete solution of DCN, which are suitable for all applications, OptiX RTN 900 provide
Out-Band DCN and In-Band DCN solutions.
For Out-band DCN:

Cascading NM ports through network cables


DCN packets are transmitted to the OptiX RTN 900 through the NM ports. In this case, you can use the

Huawei private protocol, IP protocol or OSI protocol

Establishing DCC channels by means of overhead bytes in microwave frames


DCC channels use the DCC bytes in SDH frames, PDH or Hybrid microwave frames as the channels for

communication between NEs. DCN packets are transmitted to the OptiX RTN 900 through the overhead bytes
in microwave frames.
For In-band DCN:

In the case of the OptiX RTN equipment, network management information is transmitted through
service channels.

Advantages: Features flexible deployment and requires no extra network equipment.

Disadvantages: Occupies bandwidths of service channels. The network monitoring is affected when
the RTN network is faulty.

It is recommended that you adopt inband DCN when the network is composed of the OptiX RTN
equipment only.

When the U2000 is used to manage NEs, the number of non-gateway NEs accessed through one
gateway NE cannot exceed 120.

In the case of hybrid networking of third-party equipment and the OptiX RTN equipment, the
third-party equipment must support the setting of a specific VLAN ID (the default value is 4094) for
DCN packets.

MTN Project

Huawei Confidential

Page 13 of 23

Backbone Microwave Technical Proposal

It is recommended that the DCN bandwidth at the ETH ports should be set to 2 Mbit/s for a GNE. In
other cases, the DCN bandwidth is set to 512 kbit/s by default, and a margin DCN bandwidth of 1.6
kbit/s is preserved for each NE.

To improve network reliability, use a ring topology for a DCN network, if possible. In this manner, route
protection is provided when required.

It is recommended that the number of neighbor nodes should not exceed 20; If the number of
neighbor nodes is more than 20, disable the OSPF protocol and adopt static routes.

We can specify DCN solutions by two main scenarios:

Protocol conversion or interface conversion is not required.

A routing table is required.

Recommendations tips:
We do recommend that take Huawei private protocol when all the Network elements in area are provided
by Huawei. And take protocol convertor (Need quotation) solution is recommended when co-operate with
others. This is in purpose to simplify the work of integration. Huawei can provide all kinds of convertors that
meet the requirement.

4.5 Full outdoor Solution


The purpose operator needs FO is most indicate for Full Outdoor Solutions. At todays stage, E1 and
Ethernet will exist for long time, and the products provide FE/GE only is not sufficient for these applications.
Consider about all conditions including the lightning protection of E1 cable. Huawei provide a full outdoor
solution with Outdoor BOX.
APM30 is mostly for co-installation with wireless products.
OMB is more suitable for independently installation.

4.6 Choose Products able to Evolution


The OptiX RTN 900 families is designed in TDM/Hybrid/Packet unify platform and can smoothly upgrade
from TDM/Hybrid to Packet. It helps operators out of technique decision issue, and mostly protects the
investments to get better Return on Investments.

5. Summary
The unique characteristic of allowing any Interface Type and any Transmission Mode on the very
same Hardware and Software Platform gives total freedom in choosing the best options and the optimal
timing for upgrading the Microwave Network to Ethernet Transport.
The outstanding set of transport features, in addition to the traditional features of Microwave Radios,
provides the ability to support Carrier-Grade E2E transport in a future-proof and efficient way.
In conclusion, the evolution path of Huawei RTN 900 Series Microwave Radio is in full accordance with
MTNs strategic goal of the migration to packet based backhauling. Huawei RTN 900 Packet MW solution
together with Huawei Full outdoor series of E-band and Traditional bands provide the most comprehensive
Packet Microwave portfolio while adding to an easy backhauling and further meeting the backhaul
requirements for the planned all outdoor IP NodeBs & SDR and LTE eras all outdoor Pico and Micro
eNodeBs.

6. Disclaimer
The network dimension is subject to the business requirement and traffic model required in the
tender and any other assumptions deemed as necessary by the Bidder. In case the condition of
dimension varies, the BOQ and price shall be adjusted accordingly.

6.1 Frequency
If the tenderer has placed a purchase order or trial order, the tenderer should be responsible for obtaining
the correct frequency sub band. Only the acquisition of the correct sub band can ensure the fast delivery and
deployment. If the acquisition of the sub band is delayed, Huawei shall not be liable for any change in quotation
and project delivery within the original scope of work.
If the product has been sold but the tenderer is unable to obtain the corresponding frequencies from the
relevant management authority, frequency adjustment will be made based on the actual conditions. Extra
expenses incurred for frequency adjustment are borne by the tenderer.

6.2 Network Architecture


At the network planning stage, the initial planning needs to be modified accordingly after a detailed LOS
survey. The bill of quotation (BoQ) of the digital radio system also needs to be modified so that it can agree
with the actual radio network planning scheme, the LOS survey, and the local geographical conditions. In
addition, the price and the delivery schedule need to be modified accordingly.
If the LOS survey is beyond the responsibility of Huawei, the extra expenditure incurred for frequency
adjustment should not be borne by Huawei. Buildings or natural structures between two sites should not be
considered as factors affecting the LOS availability. If the LOS survey shows that there is an obstacle on a
transmission link and there is no way of redirecting the signals on this link to surrounding wireless base stations,
the tenderer should consider using repeaters or other transmission media. The expenditure incurred hereby
should be borne by the tenderer.

6.3 Quotation
If the system contains third-party equipment, the extra expenditure for the devices such as hubs and
routers in the data communication network (DCN) should not be included in the quotation unless requested by
the tenderer.
