A faulty BTS may affect the normal operation of its lower-level BTSs. Figure 10-5 shows the chain topology. Therefore.BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide 10 Configuration Reference Information The advantages of the star topology are as follows: l l l l l Simple network structure Easy engineering implementation Convenient network maintenance Flexible capacity expansion High network reliability Disadvantages: Compared with other topologies. the timeslots of the lower-level BTSs are switched over from the incoming E1 port to the outgoing E1 port through the switching board of the BTS. To minimize the impact of the faulty upper-level BTS on lower-level BTSs. A timeslot integration device can be used to solve this problem. the Abis bypass function is provided. the chain topology is recommended. the relay switch works to ensure the direct connection between the incoming E1 port and the outgoing E1 port on the BTS. 10-29 . When the BTS fails to provide services due to power-off or other reasons. Chain Topology In a chain topology. In bypass mode. Disadvantages: l l l The reliability of the transmission link is poor because the signal transmission passes through multiple nodes.. Issue 07 (2010-09-15) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. such as areas along highways and high-speed railways. transmission resource utilization in the star topology is not high. Especially for small-scaled BTSs. Ltd. the star topology requires a largest quantity of transmission cables. the transmission resource is wasted. Figure 10-6 shows the bypass function of the BTS. Therefore. If the star topology is used in this situation. a relay switch is installed on the BTS. the lower-level BTSs still retain the connection to the BSC6900. The BTS chain topology is applicable to sparsely populated areas in the strip-like terrain. The BTSs on a cascading link can only process the timeslots of their own and transparently transmit the timeslots of the lower-level BTSs. The number of cascading levels must not exceed five. BTSs are cascaded. When a BTS is running normally. Figure 10-5 Chain topology Advantages: The chain topology can reduce the costs of transmission equipment and engineering construction and save the rent for the transmission links.

Typical Configuration Scenarios The typical configuration scenarios of BTSs are as follows: l l l l l l S2 S2/2/2 S4/4/4 S6/6/6 S8/8/8 S12/12/12 The BTS configuration processes in all scenarios are the same. that is. S2 indicates that there is one cell under a BTS. Therefore. Each timeslot is divided into four sub-timeslots.3. however. and the transmission rate on each sub-timeslot is 16 kbit/s. Issue 07 (2010-09-15) . S2/2/2 indicates that there are three cells under a BTS. and there are two TRXs under this cell. and two TRXs under each cell.. The value of "x" indicates the number of TRXs under each cell. The difference between different configuration modes mainly lies in the number of cells and TRXs at different BTSs. Ltd. that is.8 Typical Configuration Scenarios of the Radio Layer This section provides several typical configuration modes of the BTS radio layer in terms of cells and TRXs.3. are different from each other. l IP over Ethernet Networking The QoS of the network cannot be guaranteed easily.9 Concepts of the BTS Multiplexing Mode This section describes BTS multiplexing.048 Mbit/s. which consists of 32 timeslots. Definition of Typical Configuration Generally. the multiplexing of the LAPD signaling on the E1 timeslots of the Abis interface. The configuration objects and quantity. The transmission rate on each timeslot is 64 kbit/s. BTSs have two configuration modes. The quantity of "x"s represents the number of cells.

64 kbit/s Statistical Multiplexing Mode Statistical multiplexing is a technology where n channels share one 64 kbit/s timeslot. l Radio signaling link (RSL) Signaling link of a TRX.BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide 10 Configuration Reference Information l Operation and maintenance link (OML) link for operation and maintenance of a BTS. 10-35 . l Idle Idle timeslot of a BTS.. In all the n:1 multiplexing modes. which has a rate of 16 kbit/s. Time Division Multiplexing (TDM). Each TRX has one RSL at a rate of 64 kbit/s. which has a rate of 8 kbit/s. and the half transmission rate is 8 kbit/s. Ltd. each in a different time slice. n:1 (n<=6). When the timeslot assignment mode on the Abis interface of the BTS is set to FLEX_ABIS. Issue 07 (2010-09-15) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. 32 kbit/s. or 64 kbit/ s and cannot be multiplexed with timeslots of other types. RSLs use 64 kbit/s timeslots through multiplexing. The rate of all the signaling links is 64 kbit/s. All the timeslots implement 64 kbit/s switching in the Abis interface board of the BSC6900. The 64 kbit/s statistical multiplexing mode consists of the following types: l l l l l l 1:1 2:1 3:1 4:1 5:1 6:1 That is. RSLs can be multiplexed with only the OML or other RSLs of the same BTS. where n represents the number of signaling links and 1 represents one E1 timeslot (64 kbit/s) on the Abis interface. Each BTS has only one OML. 16 kbit/s. In statistical multiplexing mode. l Traffic channel (TCH) Traffic channel of a TRX. l Extended signaling link (ESL) Extended signaling link. Idle timeslots can be multiplexed with only the TCHs of the same cabinet group. that is. the speech rate is 16 kbit/s or 8 kbit/s (half rate). The full transmission rate is 16 kbit/s. and the transmission rate on the OML is 64 kbit/s. l Semi Monitoring timeslot of a BTS. An OML can be multiplexed with only the RSLs of the same BTS. Four fullrate traffic channels or eight half-rate traffic channels occupy one 64 kbit/s timeslot on the Abis interface. ESL can be multiplexed with only the OML of the same BTS in a 64 kbit/s timeslot of the same E1 link. each BTS requires one 64 kbit/s ESL for transmitting the signaling of dynamic Abis timeslot connection. Based on the multiplexing mode (n:1). When the Abis interface uses a 64 kbit/s timeslot for signaling transmission. traffic channels cannot use the same timeslot. n signaling timeslots occupy one E1 timeslot (64 kbit/s) on the Abis interface. multiple channels are multiplexed onto one 64 kbit/s bandwidth.

BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide

Principles of Numbering MTP3 Signaling Link Sets
In a BSC6900, the number of the MTP3 signaling link set ranges from 0 to 186. MTP3 signaling link sets are uniquely but not necessarily consecutively numbered within a BSC6900 by using the signaling link set index. For example, you can set the number of an MTP3 signaling link set towards a neighboring MGW to 10 and the number of an MTP3 signaling link set towards another neighboring MGW to 12.

Principles of Numbering M3UA Signaling Link Sets
In a BSC6900, the numbers of M3UA signaling link sets range from 0 to 186. M3UA signaling link sets are uniquely but not necessarily consecutively numbered within a BSC6900 by using the signaling link set index. For example, you can set the number of an M3UA signaling link set towards a neighboring MSC to 11 and the number of an M3UA signaling link set towards another neighboring MSC to 13.

10.5.8 MSC ID
This section describes the principles of and suggestions for numbering MSCs.

Principles
MSCs are uniquely but not necessarily consecutively numbered within a BSC6900. For example, set the number of an MSC to 0 and that of another MSC to 2.
NOTE

Although the number of an MSC ranges from 0 to 4095, a maximum of 64 MSCs can be configured.

Suggestions
For clear and easy identification, adhere to the following numbering principles: Specify different ranges for CN nodes in different domains. For example, specify the range of 0 to 15 for CN nodes in the CS domain and the range of 16 to 31 for CN nodes in the PS domain.

10.5.9 Logical Cell ID
This section describes the principles of and suggestions for numbering logical cells.

Principles
The logical cell ID uniquely identifies a cell in a radio network. The logical cell ID is configured at the BSC6900. The BSC6900 sends the cell ID to the base station during a cell setup procedure. The mapping between logical cell IDs and local cell IDs are configured at the BSC6900. The BSC6900 supports a maximum of 2048 logical cells. Logical cells are uniquely but not necessarily consecutively numbered within a BSC6900. For example, you can set the ID of a logical cell to 0 and that of another logical cell to 2.

Suggestions
For clear and easy identification, adhere to the following numbering principles:
10-52 Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Issue 07 (2010-09-15)

BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide

10 Configuration Reference Information

Specify different number ranges for logical cells in different subracks. For example, you can specify the range of 0 to 899 for the logical cells in subrack 0 (MPS) and the range of 900 to 1799 for the logical cells in subrack 1 (EPS).

10.5.10 GSM Cell ID
This section describes the principles of numbering GSM cells. A GSM cell ID is used to identify the GSM cell. The BSC6900 supports a maximum of 2048 GSM cells. GSM cells are uniquely but not necessarily consecutively numbered within a BSC6900. For example, you can number a GSM cell 0 and number another GSM cell 3.

10.5.11 NRI
This section describes the principles of setting Network Resource Identifiers (NRIs). An NRI uniquely identifies a CN node that serves a pool area. The value range of NRI is variable. The value range depends on the scale of a CN domain and expansion requirements. The maximum number of NRIs is 1,024. For example, a CS domain has a maximum of 16 nodes. In this case, Length of CS NRI in bits is set to 4, which indicates that an NRI is represented by four binary digits. Therefore, the value range of NRI is 0 to 15.

10.5.12 PLMN ID
This section defines the PLMN and describes the components of the PLMN ID.

PLMN
Public Land Mobile Networks (PLMNs), which are established and operated by executive branches or recognized private operators, provide public land mobile radio telecommunication services. PLMN IDs identify mobile communication operators of different countries. PLMNs of different operators have different PLMN IDs.

PLMN ID
The PLMN ID is used to uniquely identify a PLMN worldwide. The PLMN ID consists of two parts: MCC and MNC. Figure 10-13 shows the components of the PLMN ID. Figure 10-13 Components of the PLMN ID

15 PLMN Value Tag This section defines the PLMN value tag and describes the principles of numbering PLMN value tags. Figure 10-16 shows an example of planning the value ranges of PLMN value tags. or one LA and one RA.. during network planning. During parameter configuration. the UE needs to read the SIB1 of the destination cell to initiate a location update procedure. two RAs. There is no intersection between the value ranges. which requires that the two cells have different PLMN value tags. The PLMN value tags of LAs or RAs vary within the specified range. it automatically reads the new SIB1. the PLMN value tag of the cell varies within the specified value range of the RA to which the cell belongs. When a UE moves between neighboring cells that belong to different LAs or RAs. if a cell supports PS services. different value ranges should be allocated to the PLMN value tags of any two geographically neighboring areas (including scenarios where one area is part of the other area). NOTE In practice. Figure 10-16 Example of planning the value ranges of PLMN value tags Issue 07 (2010-09-15) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. If a cell does not support PS services. The area can be an LA or RA. the PLMN value tag of the cell varies within the specified value range of the LA to which the cell belongs. 10-55 . The PLMN value tag in the MIB changes after an SIB1 is updated.BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide 10 Configuration Reference Information 10. Ltd.5. Therefore. the PLMN value tags of different value ranges should be assigned to any neighboring areas after negotiation. As a result. The two areas can be two LAs. After the UE detects the change in the PLMN value tag. a UE can always read different PLMN value tags when moving across the areas and thus correctly reads the SIB1. The PLMN value tag is contained in the Master Information Block (MIB) and System Information Block 1 (SIB1) as an information element.
