Support of Remote BSC

Abstract This document describes the definition of the remote BSC, the establishment of the new interface and the definition of signalling towards the BSC. A second part describes the necessary definitions in the BSC to set up the connection between the TRC and the BSC.

1 Revision Information
This document has been updated to revision C due to the introduction of Fixed Size Alteration.

2 Description
2.1 Different Node Types
From BSS R7 it is possible to separate the TRAU HW from the BSC. Between the Transceiver Controller (TRC) node and the BSC node, there is an Ater Interface. One TRC can support up to 16 BSCs. One BSC can reside on the same physical platform as the TRC. This is a BSC/TRC, which is comparable to the BSC in BSS R6.1 and all earlier BSS releases.

The TRC can contain up to three different TRA-Pools, one for each speech coding type. The following Figure 1shows a BSC/TRC with a standalone BSC connected.

Figure 1 The different node types and their interfaces.

2.2 Signalling
The A interface signalling towards the MSC remains unchanged. The communication between TRC or BSC/TRC and a remote BSC is done by a C7 based ERICSSON proprietary communication protocol. In case of one combined BSC/TRC, the internal signalling between the TRC and the BSC part is used. The TRC or BSC/TRC node handles the Ater transmission interface resources. The O&M signalling and handling of the Ater interface is similar to the current implementation in the A interface.

3 Data Transcript Impacts


3.1 Assumptions

Up to now only the term TRC is used. It has no impact on the DT described below, whether the actual system is a TRC or a BSC/TRC. It is only a simplification in writing. The DT which follows is divided in two parts. The first part covers the integration of one remote BSC within one TRC. This means, that the TRC is already running and integrated in the network. The DT, which follows below is the delta to integrate one remote BSC. Therefore the whole DT beginning with SAEs is covered. The second part covers the corresponding DT within this remote BSC. That means the DT which is necessary to establish the connection between BSC and TRC is explained. But this is not a complete DT to define the whole BSC.

How to set the SAE number of individuals is described in document "Setting of Size Alteration Events in BSC/TRC" no. 105/19046-FAD 10406, included in this DTInfomodel. Two methods are described but we recommend the Fxed SAE method.The following SAEs are affected by this function:

With the hardware BYB 501 all the RP types have changed. Within one magazine these RPs perform an additional maintenance function. They supervise the power supply within this magazine. This means, that there is one more software to load in the RP, RPMMR.

3.2.8 CCITT7 Signalling


Within this subfile the new C7 signalling point - the standalone BSC - is defined. The new command RRBSI defines this node with its DPC and NEI as a new standalone BSC within the TRC. The signalling link towards the standalone BSC is established.

3.2.12 Deblocking of C7
The DIPs for both interfaces are deblocked. Then the circuit identity codes are connected and it is declared to which BSC these devices belong. This means the devices are associated with one BSC. In case of RALT devices it is possible that the devices are associated with an optional "OWN" BSC within a TRC or associated with a standalone BSC. In case of RTLTT devices it is declared with which BSC the devices are associated.

Special semipermanent connections are defined.

Blocking supervision and seizure supervision are activated. The values are operator dependent. The parameter LVB needs absolute number of devices. It is necessary to change this parameter in case of increasing or decreasing the number of RALT or RTLTT devices.

The values which are used here are based on the highest RALT- device=800 and RTLTTdevice=64. The recommendation is to set the alarm limit for the number of blocked devices LVB to 25%, 50% and 75% of the highest defined device number.

3.3 Establish the Connection from the BSC to the TRC


The following DT can be regarded as an example DT to establish the interface and the signalling between the TRC and the remote BSC. It corresponds directly to the example which was explained above. To define the whole BSC more DT is necessary, as SAE setting, TRH definition or RBLT equipment definition. But this is not mentioned here. Most of the following DT is similar to the DT described above, but pay attention to the subfiles CCITT7 Signalling and Deblocking of C7!

The command RADPI is necessary to load the MSCs destination point code in the signalling network based on the CCITT standard. This is necessary to make the interwork between the BSC and the MSC possible.

In the BSC are also defined four semipermanent connections. They represent in pairs the two different signalling interfaces towards the MSC and towards the TRC. Important is that the two devices DEV=RTLTB-1&-33 are these two which are semipermanently connected to RALT devices in the TRC. Otherwise the BSC cannot perform signalling towards the MSC.
