Hot plug-in: A hot plug-in of COBA and COSA is possible. This means that these boards can be plugged in/out with voltage switched on without disturbing other HW inside the rack (no loss of data on other boards) and without destroying other boards. After the plug-in of a core board, this board is in "reset" state and all bus drivers of external busses are in tristate. These drivers will be enabled not before initialization of the devices, which serve the external busses.

The main components of this board are the base core controller, the advanced clock generation, the serial link interface controller that manage the external interface towards the carrier units, the PCM30/24 Abis interfaces, the internal system alarm interface, and also an interface to one COSA to expand the BTS. The COBA has to be installed in the base rack. Types of COBA: • M:COBA2P8Vx • M:COBA4P12Vx • M:CESCOBAVx

g Name convention for COBAs and COSAs:
The first digit gives the number of Abis interfaces, the following letter gives the kind of Abis interface (e.g. P for PCM30/24), and the following number gives the number of carrier unit interfaces (CC-links). For example: COBA2P8 means 2 PCM30/24 Abis interfaces and 8 carrier unit interfaces. COBA4P12 means 4 PCM30/24 Abis interfaces and 12 carrier unit interfaces. The base core controller maintains the software of all BTS units in FLASH-EPROMs, monitors the software download, and terminates all internal system alarms. Beside the O&M functions, the controller handles the signaling messages between the core and the carrier units (CC-link). The ACLK generates the system specific timing signals that are distributed by the CC-link to the carrier units. The "cross connect" feature is supported. To provide this feature, additional core modules are required: • With COBA2P8: A COSA6P16 must be installed additionally. • With COBA4P12: Either a COSA4P12 or a COREXT must be installed additionally. • With CESCOBA: Either a COSA4P12 or a COREXT must be installed additionally. The CESCOBA module (available from BR10 onward) is required if Circuit Emulation Service over Packet functionality shall be applied. The CESCOBA is a COBA version for the BTSE family which is designed to carry TDM traffic (Abis) over a packet network without external equipment. TDM to Packet interworking functionality is based on the Pseudo Wire emulation Edge-to-Edge mechanism (PWE3), which allows the transport of all relevant parts of a service, such as E1/T1 lines, over a packet switched network. This kind of emulation is called Circuit Emulation Service over Packet Switched Network (CESoPSN). For more information about CESoPSN functionality, see the feature description “FD10560: Internal Ethernet/IP interfaces for BSS”. The CESCOBA must not be mixed with COBA4P12, COBA2P8 or COSA6P16.One (or two) CESCOBA module(s) can only be configured in combination with one Ethernet connector module (ETHCON). Core redundancy is possible (see Core redundancy). Fault propagation through dependent modules If core redundancy is not installed and a failure in the COBA module occurs , the entire BTS goes out of service until the faulty COBA module is replaced.

Module description

If core redundancy is installed and a failure in the active COBA module occurs, all calls will be lost and the BSTE switches to the stand-by COBA without any further service interruption. If the CESCOBA is configured and the ETHCON unit is faulty, the BTSE is out of operation even if core redundancy is applied.

4.2.2

Core satellite (COSA)
The main task of the COSA board is to increase the number of the PCM30/24 Abis interfaces and CC-links of the COBA. A COSA in combination with a COBA make the "cross connect" functionality available. The COSA is an optional module. It is located in the base rack. The COSA is controlled by the COBA and receives the working-clock from the COBA. The first 8 carrier units in the base rack are supported by the COBA. The COSA supports 4 additional carrier units in the base rack and 12 carrier units in the extension rack. The COSA extends the configuration by up to 6 Abis ports. In the configuration with COBA and COSA, the BTS can support a maximum of 8 PCM lines and a maximum of 24 carrier units. See Table 4 for all possible core configurations. Types of COSA: • COSA6P16 • COSA4P12 COBA2P8 extension with 6 Abis links and 16 CC-links COBA4P12 extension with 4 Abis links and 12 CC-links

g For the naming convention see note at COBA description. 4.2.3 Core link extension (COREXT)
The main task of the COREXT board is to increase the number of the PCM30/24 Abis interfaces and CC-links of the COBA. A COSA in combination with a COBA make the "cross connect" functionality available. The COREXT board is an optional module and can be installed alternatively to a COSA board inside the COSA slot in the base rack. The COREXT board connects 4 carrier unit ports and 2 Abis ports located at the COBA4P12 board via core backplane to the appropriate interfaces. The COREXT is a passive board without a DC supply interface. Type of COREXT: • COREXTV1: COBA4P12 extension with 2 Abis (PCM) links and 4 CC-links

e. where the RX bandpass filter section selects the uplink band signal. Therefore. two branches • an attenuator (for MUCO and AMCO mode) • six equivalent outputs • a cascade output The LNA ensures a low system noise figure and consists of two branches. This bridge is only omitted when the BTS needs a simplex RX input. RF power combining / tuning modes The low loss power addition is carried out by combining the outputs of remote tunable narrowband filters (TNFs) inside the FICOM6. For a large number of carriers (6 and higher). The duplex filter combines the RX and the TX paths together. The RX signal from main antenna port ANT0 (see Figure 27) is passed through to the duplexer.g. LNA1 is optimized for low noise figure and can be by-passed with a switch in case a high gain TMA is providing sufficient signal amplification (MUCO mode). With this automatic tuning process. baseband frequency hopping has only a negligible disadvantage compared to synthesizer frequency hopping. RXout). One of the modules (module 1) contains an RX path. the FICOM6 can only be used with baseband frequency hopping. The attenuator can be adjusted over a range of 12 dB (in steps of 1 dB) to set the total gain of the RX path from antenna port to TRX input port to the nominal value. Each RX path consists of: • the low noise amplifier (LNA). These TNFs are remotely tuned to the channel frequency of the corresponding carrier. The LNA provides six outputs of the amplified received signal. In case of malfunction in one of the amplifiers. as retuning of the TNF frequency requires up to 5 seconds. another co-sited BTS or some 3rd party RX multicoupler. Normally.6 FICOM6 The FICOM6 (filter combiner with 6 tunable narrowband filters) is the successor of the FICOM modules (old FICOM modules were not available in BS-240XL II) and provides the same functionality like an MFDUAMCO module. The installation of a FICOM6 needs two horizontal adjacent ACOM slots. because the RX signal is not provided directly by the antenna but by an RX signal distribution unit. The attenuator works in both modes (AMCO and 74 Id:0900d8058052473e A50016-G5100-A023-09-7620 . the RX gain of the FICOM6 decreases by about 6 dB. If RF power is supplied to the TNF it automatically performs a fine tuning to ensure the best RF performance. this signal is routed to the LNA over a jumper line connected at the front plate of the module (RXin. It is possible to combine a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 TX signals in each FICOM6. the drift of the passband filter center frequency is compensated. The other module (module 0) contains a duplex filter to be fed to a common antenna. The gain of the receive path is switchable to an amplifier multicoupler (AMCO) or a multicoupler (MUCO) configuration (see below Operating modes for FICOM6). A TNF is first coarse tuned to the desired channel. A failure of LNA1 generates a major alarm in the O&M system. Design and function The FICOM6 consists of two modules and a common part.Antenna combining BS-240XL II product description 5. These output ports are connected to the corresponding carrier units by jumper cables.

The TX signals from up to 6 TRXs. high or low gain TMA and a range of feed line loss.BS-240XL II product description Antenna combining MUCO) to allow correct gain setting for a great variety of antenna system configurations: with or without TMA. The DUBIAS allows coupling DC supply current and controlling signal on the RF line. Alarm monitoring is done with a signaling interface between FICOM6 and TMA. The RX path from antenna port ANT1 (RX diversity) is equal to the main RX path with the following exceptions: The antenna port ANT1 is directly connected with the RX bandpass filter. are passed through TNFs. The activation of the by-pass switch and the adjustment of the attenuator can be done via DIP switches or O&M commands. The FICOM6 detects a VSWR alarm and generates a failure information towards the O&M (CAN bus interface). each operating on a different carrier frequency. This information is subdivided in several levels with the following characteristics: no alarm or warning – VSWR < 2 – 2 ≤ VSWR ≤ 3 generation of warning "Minor VSWR fault" generation of VSWR alarm "Major VSWR fault" – VSWR > 3 The common part consists of: • a DC/DC converter plus a power distribution unit (PDU) • an O&M unit The DC/DC converter supplies the FICOM6 itself. LNA2 is optimized for high output power and linearity to direct up to 6 RX outputs to the TRX units through the power splitter and a further cascading output (RXCA). The filter passband is just wide enough for a single GSM radio frequency channel and its center frequency is tuned by an electric motor under control of the module's micro controller. The RX output ports direct the diversity RX inputs to up to 6 TRXs. and a failure of both branches of LNA2 generates a major alarm in the O&M system. DTMA and RET. The O&M unit transmits error messages to the COBA via a CAN bus. A failure of one branch of LNA2 generates a minor alarm. The TNF outputs are summed and routed to the duplexer. the VSWR sensor measures the VSWR on the feed line and outputs the composite TX signal to the main antenna port ANT0. without any duplexer. The duplexer passes the composite TX signal through its TX bandpass filter section towards the antenna port. which are needed to control active antenna-near devices like MHA. LNA2 is a two-branch amplifier for enhanced reliability. Finally. The RXin/RXout connectors are not needed because the antenna port ANT1 is a simplex port only. The PDU provides the DC power supply and the alarm monitoring of the TMAs. The TX path consists of: • six tunable narrowband filters (TNFs) • an isolator for the TX input • an antenna supervision unit (ASU) • jumpers for combining mode setting The isolator for the TX input protects the power amplifiers (PAs) inside the carrier units from each other in order to assure the required inter-modulation suppression.

also for RXCA gain). The low amplifying MUCO mode is used in case of cascading the FICOM6 with a preamplifier MHA or TMA. The selected mode can be read by O&M software via CAN bus interface. The RX amplifier mode and the TMA power supply can be enabled/disabled independently. The following features of O&M support are available from BR10 onward: • RX gain adjustment is configurable via LMT and remote via RC. by using the appropriate configuration command in the O&M system.Antenna combining BS-240XL II product description Operating modes for FICOM6 The FICOM6 has two operating modes. A built-in attenuator provides a constant gain between MHA/TMA and FICOM6. 3rd party TMAs (low gain. from BR10 onward. See the Commissioning manuals for details. • • 76 Id:0900d8058052473e A50016-G5100-A023-09-7620 . This adjustment is only done once during the installation of the BTS by the service personnel. the RX path must be switched into one of these modes (by DIP switches): • AMCO mode • MUCO mode The high amplifying AMCO mode is used if the antenna is directly connected to the FICOM6 (without a preamplifier TMA). The FICOM6 gain is around 20/22 dB (see Table 21. also for RXCA gain). The power supply and the signaling of the MHA/TMA are provided by the FICOM6 via triplexer at the antenna outputs. allowing AMCO mode and TMA power supply in parallel. In this case. the LED (TMA) is permanently green flashing. or. During the BTS commissioning. VSWR thresholds for warning and alarming is configurable via O&M command. even missing or wrong DIP switch settings can be corrected from remote. no fault signaling) are supported by O&M software. independent of the cable loss. The gain of the FICOM6 can be matched to the cable loss and the TMA gain with the DIP switch. The gain is reduced to about 2 dB (see Table 21. The gain adjustment is performed at commissioning by setting the attenuator in FICOM6 by dip switches.
