Foreword

The BSC6900 is an important network element (NE) of Huawei Single RAN solution. It adopts the industry-leading multiple radio access technologies, IP transmission mode,

and modular design. It features high capacity, high
integration, excellent performance, and low power consumption.

The BSC6900 can be flexibly configured as a BSC6900 GSM only, BSC6900 UMTS only, or BSC6900 GU as

required in different networks
