So the functions of the XTerminal are restricted to handle the user input (keyboard and mouse) and to display the output (monitor). the Workstations can handle one or two sessions: one local session and one additional session of an X-Terminal.e.the client The OMTs are the workstations with the Command Line Interface. The OMT are connected to the OMP in a LAN (Local Area Network) configuration.2 OMT .1. One of these sessions can also run locally. but they need a Workstation or a dedicated X-Terminal-Server to process the user tasks. which are used by the RC staff to enter their commands. one session runs at the OMX and all the other sessions run at the XT. which can handle just one additional session.

RC connections to the network elements (BSS)

The RC system comes with three different possible connections to the managed BSS network entities:

• G.703 (PCM) connection via MSC (PCM link)
This interface is implemented by the 2 Mbit/s | 1,54 Mbit/s board equipped into the OMP Server in the RC (PT card). The link is terminated on the STLP (or QTLP) module on the BSC side.

• X.21 serial connection, directly to the NE or via a WAN with HSI board
(dedicated line) The new HSI/PCI board uses a different type of technology and provides four ports, each supporting 2 Mbit/s baud rate allowing to connect up to 32 remote systems at 64 Kbit/s each. At the BSC site the dedicated point to point X.25 link and connection via X.25 PSDN are provided by two IXLT boards (cold standby) and is based on the X.21/ V.11.

• a TCP-IP connection, through an additional LAN card inserted in the OMP.
At the BSC site the TCP-IP connection is provided by two MPCCV9 boards (hot standby redundancy).

2 OMAL via PCM link The OMAL (at a transmission rate of 64 kbit/s) is mapped on the BSC site in the PCMS Link. This implementation is called “nailed up connection“.2. 20 MN1780EU11MN_0001 © 2005 Siemens AG .Siemens Operation and maintenance tools overview 3. The RC can control and supervise up to 31/23 BSS.

while the additional one is always associated with the standby one. To each Ethernet port there is assigned a unique Medium Access Control (MAC) address. The active IP address is always related to the active MPCC copy. It is completely separated from the Ethernet link used for RC internal connections and it is referred as IP based O-link LAN. which corresponds at different times and in an exclusive way to two different MAC addresses. although the key functionality is implemented within the MPCC board. An Ethernet 10/100BaseT link via a RJ45 connector is used to transport information concerning the connection between OMP and the managed BSSs (either file transfer or O&M purposes). The additional IP address is necessary for testing purposes with respect to the standby MPCC board. Two IP addresses must be uniquely defined for each BSC. The communication protocol profile is Q3 on top of TCP-IP over Ethernet. as each BSC is equipped with two MPCC boards – one active board and one standby board. This can be realized with the new MPCCV9 board in addition with the new TDPCV9 only.

Alarm reports always result in one of five error types specified by GSM: • Equipment alarm • Communication alarm • Quality of service alarm • Environment alarm • Processing alarm Moreover. Hardware faults are usually isolated to a particular module. The defective unit can be replaced later. In addition. Each single failure (failure source) generates a single alarm report. Fault handling can be divided into the following main functions: • Fault detection • Fault recovery • Alarm logging • Alarm reporting If a fault is detected.4. Therefore.5 Fault and test management Fault Management includes all the measures required to detect and repair faults in the mobile communications network.Siemens Operation and maintenance tools overview 3. The operator receives information about the probable cause. These changes are displayed on the graphical workstation by graphical symbols. which provides further information on how to deal with the fault. he has access to the on-line maintenance documentation. colors and animation. Operation is normally switched to another module that takes over the function of the defective unit.

Siemens Operation and maintenance tools overview Test Management is closely related to the fault management. Handling of RC faults The RC supervises the following connections in order to detect possible link failures: • RC to SBS via layer 2 supervision (LAPB). Also in the OMS the service is supervised in order to detect internal faults. and • OMP to OMT via keep-alive messages (TCP/IP). BSC and TRAU autonomously perform fault recovery. The operator is able to activate remote diagnostic procedures. The recovery process can be seen as a sequence of defense actions. which can be retrieved by operator’s request for further analysis. 42 MN1780EU11MN_0001 © 2005 Siemens AG . performed to minimize the loss of service caused by a fault.
