4.3 Hardware
Ethernet crossover RJ45 to RJ45 cable for RBS-Thin Client connection (Ethernet). Serial RS-232C, RJ45-Dsub9 cables for RBS-Thin Client connection.

5 Configuration
In this document the following notation is used for commands.

$ telogread This would mean that you should enter te <space key> log <space key> read and then press <enter key>. $ appears when you open a serial connection and press the return key. 5.1 Prepare for Integration. 5.2 Check Miscellaneous Equipment (i.e. TMA/RET) 5.3 No alarm on transmission equipment (If Applicable). 5.4 Cabling between the Thin Client and RBS: Ethernet connection is made from the laptop to LMB connector on the DUL interface on the RBS6201. 5.5 Connect serial cable to LMA connector on the DUL interface of the eNodeB RBS 6201 5.6 Thin Client IP Address Change (see section 7) 5.7 Check Serial Connection (HyperTerminal/Putty)

6 Preparing the Laptop


6.1 Setting the laptop IP address
The laptop PC needs to be configured to reach the node for the first time when using the Ethernet connection and the Element Manager Application and Support (EMAS). This section describes changing the TCP/IP setting on the laptop, according to the IP addressing strategy of the customers network. This activity must be performed at each new site as the site IP addresses are uniquely numbered.

6.2 On the desktop, right-click the My Network Places (Network Neighbourhood in NT) icon. 6.3 From the submenu, select <Properties> The Network and Dialup Connections Window opens

Right click on the Local Area Connection icon and select <Properties> from the drop down menu. The "Local Area Connection Properties" window will open.

Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on <Properties> The following window opens. Note: this is the default setting for PC, and it should be returned to this at the end of
the procedure.

NB! You can avoid this setting if your PC get routing info from eNB. Check this by open an MSDOS window (Run from Start menu on your PC and cmd). If you get the following routing information when writing the command ipconfig in the MS-DOS window, you can proceed without setting the IPv4 address:

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 169.254.33.0 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 169.254.1.10


The Laptop PC IP Address is set in this window using the following process, NOTE: The IP address of the Laptop PC (thin client) cannot be the same as the Ethernet IP address of the RBS node. Networking convention dictates that the commissioning laptop (thin client) address is equal to the RBS Node Ethernet address incremented by one. Example (Site specific IP address (i.e. site 139901) RBS Ethernet IP Address = 10.26.67.254 Laptop PC (thin client) IP Address = 10.26.67.255 The Subnet mask can be set as follows. Subnet Mask = 255.255.0.0

Select 'Use the following IP address' in the TCP/IP properties window. Enter the IP address for the Laptop PC (thin client), and also enter the Subnet Mask as detailed above. Check that the 'Use the following DNS server address' is selected and that the address and subnet mask is blank. 6.7 Click <OK> close all the windows. 6.8 With some operating systems it may be required to restart the Laptop PC (thin client) to activate the new IP settings. The Laptop PC (thin client) is now configured.

7 Procedure for integrating eNodeB for Rollout.


Front of RBS, see figure below. Serial port should be connected to LMA and Ethernet connection to LMB. TN B is the electrical interface to Tellabs transport node.

1. Format the eNodeB, see procedure below. 2. Transfer over c2 and d disk of the Basic Package disk by disk using ftp. Basic Package CXP102083%10_R6T. NB! Dont format or delete other disks than c2 and d. Let other files or folders stay on RBS. See example in chapter below.

3. Do reload command on serial interface and the node should come up with basic 4.
5. configuration (CV) after a couple of minutes. Start up Element Manager by using the following address in the browser: http://169.254.1.10/em/index.html. Download the Client to your PC and Install it. When the Client is installed, start it form Programs -> EM-Application. You can either start RBS Element Manager or RBS Configuraion tool -> Integrate RBS. From EMAS click tools in the top tab menu line and choose Configuration tool (only one choice). In the GUI that opens, browse for the SiteInstall file. Omit all other files. Disable security. See example:

9. When installing for Netcom Rollout do following settings in the Configuring files data window:

10. When you have stepped to the window for Product information (stepping by using the
next button), take a picture of the label of the RBS6201 located at the bottom and in the middle of the front of the cabinet. Than you can zoom to be able to read the numbers. See example below:

11. Now you can start the integration by clicking Start Integration. NB! The eNB will restart
after 25% of the configuration is done, NB! DONT HAVE ANY WIRELESS DEVICE ACTIVA ON YOUR PC DURING THE INTEGRATION! 12. Contact NOC at Telia Sundsvall and check if they have contact with the site and everything is OK.

8 Formatting the RBS 6000


This step requires a serial connection to the DUL NB! Specific pinconfig of the RS232 connector. See pinlayout on own sheet. HyperTerminal or Puttyl serial terminal software (Go to Section 17.1 for HyperTerminal Setup Instructions Go to Section 17.2 for Putty 7.1 Note: As detailed in this procedure the RBS 6000 will be placed into a BACKUP mode, this is an 'idle' mode where the RBS is in a state where it is not in service or executing any of its own processes. Force the RBS into BACKUP mode using the commands in the serial window below, $ reload- The expected response that will be contained in the serial window is Stop due to remain in backup set Now format the RBS hard disks using the following commands, responding with Y when prompted to continue. Note: All data on the hard disk will be destroyed. $ formathd/d Y $ formathd/c2 Y Once the second format command has completed enter the following command $ reload- The expected response that will be contained in the serial window is Stop due to remain in backup set 7.2 With the RBS 6000 in the BACKUP mode, proceed to the next section to set the RBS 6000 Ethernet IP address, using the following format. $ ifconfig le0 <RBS IP_address> e.g. $ ifconfigle0169.254.1.10 (169.254.1.10 is the standard address for the eNodeB when delivered from NPC (Node Production Centre) Verify the IP address that has been input by using the following command, the reply will show the IP address information that has been set. If the information is incorrect set the IP address again. Example printout following the 'ifconfig' command. $ ifconfig le0 ip-address: 169.254.1.10 subnetmask: 255.255.0.0 broadcast: 169.254.255.254 Do reload now and eNB should come up with basic_cv. The distribution of SW take a couple of minutes and the following status shows that it is ready:

7.3 Specify the customer provided password for access to the RBS node with the following commands in the serial window. Not Relevant at this time.
$ passwd $x $x $ reload

8 Load the RBS Basic Software Package


8.1 Verify the RBS IP address with the ping command. 8.2 Open a Command Prompt window from the Start Up Menu on your laptop, and type ping followed by the RBS IP address. Example: C:\> ping169.254.1.10 The expected response will be 0% loss 8.3 Start WS-FTP form your laptop, and configure the FTP session for your RBS. In the Sessions Properties window select New For Profile Name, enter RBS site number. For Host Name/Address, enter Node B IP Address. For User name, enter anonymous. 8.4 For Password, anonymous. Example Click

Click Apply and then OK to connect. 8.5 Set the path in the Local System window to point to the Basic Package being loaded: Example C:\ CXP102083%10_R6T\hard_disk, In the folder hard_disk 2 folders exist, they are c2 and d.

Confirm that the folder structure displayed on the left side and the right side are

the same c2 and d Disable log. Options General Uncheck Enable log. From the left display, select folder c2 and d, and press button in the middle of the display, a pop up window will appear Do you want to transfer the selected folders and their contents? click Yes, this will start the file transfer. This should only take about 5 to 10 minutes. After the transfer is complete check that the files shown in both windows are the same and then exit WS- FTP. 8.6 Perform a reload. $reload
