1 Revision information
This document has been revised to revision D due to the introduction of Fixed Size Alteration and in order to add some technical information.

2 Description
The purpose of this feature is to improve the transmission network utilization between the BSC and the RBS nodes. LAPD concentration allows different terminal equipment (TRXCs and possibly the CF) to share the same 64 Kbit/s PCM timeslot on the A-bis interface. The function is implemented in the DXU in the RBS 2000. The feature can not be active at the same time as the optional feature LAPD Multiplexing RBS2000 for a CF or TRXC.

For RBS sites with 3 TRXs or more, LAPD concentration is the most efficient way of saving transmission resources on the A-bis interface. For RBS sites with less then 3 TRXs, LAPD multiplexing is most effective.

3 Data Transcript Impacts


3.1 General
During configuration of the BTS the first TRH-CF signalling will always use a 64 Kbit/s link, when contact is established and the concentrated configuration is initiated. This example will add LAPD concentration for TG-1 site KISTA1 in the model DT with a concentration factor of 4. Table 1, figure 1 and figure 2 shows an example of how the usage of the RBLT devices might be for TG-1 using 6TRXs, with or without LAPD concentration.

3.2 APT Size Alteration Events


The following Size Alteration Events are affected by this function.

SAE SAE SAE SAE SAE SAE SAE SAE

How to set the SAE number of individuals is described in document "" Setting of Size Alterations Events in BSC/TRC"" no. 105/190 46-FAD 104 06, included in this DTInfomodel. Two methods are described but we recommend that the Fixed SAE method is used.

3.3 Traffic Data


To avoid concentrated LAPD links to be overloaded it is recommended that the maximum paging rate, exchange property PAGLIMIT, is set according to table 2. Table 2 CONFACT LAPD Unconcentrated LAPD Concentration LAPD Concentration LAPD Concentration 2 3 4 Pagings/second No restriction 60 40 30

3.4 Subfile 87xxx - Definition of TG and MO at Site XXX


The maximum concentration factor can be set by the command RXMOC for each TG. A system limit is currently limiting the maximum concentration factor to 4.
RXMOC:MO=RXOTG-1, CONFACT=4;

The signalling type is set to LAPD concentration for CF.


RXMOC:MO=RXOCF-1, SIG=CONC;

To use the LAPD Concentration, it is necessary to define the Managed Object, RXOCON.

RXMOI:MO=RXOCON-1, DCP=64&&87;

The signalling type is set to LAPD concentration for TRXCs.


RXMOC:MO=RXOTRX-1-0, RXMOC:MO=RXOTRX-1-1, RXMOC:MO=RXOTRX-1-2, RXMOC:MO=RXOTRX-1-3, RXMOC:MO=RXOTRX-1-4, RXMOC:MO=RXOTRX-1-5, SIG=CONC; SIG=CONC; SIG=CONC; SIG=CONC; SIG=CONC; SIG=CONC;

Note: For full definition of TG see basic feature "Transceiver Group G12".

3.5 Subfile 97xxx - Deblocking of TG(s) and Activation of Cell(s) at Site xxx
Take equipment into service and deblock the MO.
RXESI:MO=RXOCON-1; RXBLE:MO=RXOCON-1;

4 Miscellaneous Information
4.1 LAPD Signalling
LAPD is a protocol used for signalling on the A-bis interface between BSCs and BTSs. It operates at the data link layer (layer 2) of the OSI architecture. The following links are supported and used: L2ML Layer 2 Management Link, for O&M of the links. OML O&M Link, for O&M of the BTS equipment. RSL Radio Signalling Link, for transmission of traffic messages. OML links are used for TRH-CF* and TRH-TRXC signalling. RSL links are used for TRH-TRXC signalling to SDCCH, BCCH etc. *Only the first link that is deblocked.
