General Description

1.1

ZTE GSM BSS Family Introduction


ZTE GSM BSS family inherits the idea of 3G constructions, designing in all IP hardware
structure, modularized and distributed idea.
ZXG10 iTC is designed especially for high-speed integrated network. All IP hardware
structure, high integration and intelligent design are satisfied with mixed network
management and flat network requirement.
As a powerful TC network element, ZXG10 iTC can be configured as remote TC or TC

ZXG10 iTC Product Description

Highlights and Main Features

2.1

Highlights

2.1.1

All IP Hardware Platform


ZXG10 iTC uses the same all-IP hardware platform as ZXG10 iBSC. The hardware
platform based on all-IP can easily realize TFO/TrFO functions, IP Ater and IP A
interface for all-IP evolution.

2.1.2

High Capacity
ZXG10 iTC used as TC pool, fully configured with 4 racks supports 68040 traffic
channels in Max.; and used as Far TC, supports 3072TRX with 100%HR. By high
integration and capacity design, equipment dimension is obviously reduced, and power
consumption is also decreased greatly.

2.1.3

Modularized Design
ZXG10 iTC can be flexible configured for modularized design. For different requirement
of capacity, ZXG10 iTC can be configured with dual-shelf, single rack to 4 racks for
convenient capacity expansion in future.

2.1.4

Flexible Access
ZXG10 iTC supports various access standards including E1/T1, STM-1, and FE.
Transmission solution can also be replaced with Microwave, WIMAX, BWA, satellite.

2.1.5

Universal Platform
The All-IP hardware is universal for ZXWN NE, ZXG10 iBSC, ZXWN RNC (WCDMA)
and ZXTR RNC (TD-SCDMA). ZXG10 iTC can be integrated with iBSC co-rack.

2.2

Advanced Features

2.2.1

TC resource shared by multi-BSC


One iTC can support multi-iBSC (up to 16 BSCs) which shares all TC resource.

2011 ZTE Corporation. All rights reserved.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

ZXG10 iTC Product Description

2.2.2

Whole network sharing, dynamic distribution of TC resource


iTC system supports whole network sharing for TC resource in all resource shelves. iTC
system can also distribute TC resource dynamically without binding with A interface TS.
Operators can calculate TC capacity by actual traffic requirement rather than distribute
TC resource by semi-permanent connections. Dynamic distribution of TC resource can
reduce 30% resource investment.

2.2.3

1:8 Multiplexing of Ater interface at HR


Ater interface supports 1:8 multiplexing at half rate.

2.2.4

Flexible A
Flexible A supports Disaster Tolerance of MSC (up to 16 MSCs).

2.2.5

Gb multiplexed in Ater interface


Gb data dynamic multiplexed in Ater interface increases utilization ratio of Ater interface
link, saving Gb links resource and decreasing operators transmission construction and
lease cost.
Gb data dynamic multiplexed in Ater interface can realize convergence of packet data
and voice data to save link resources.

2.2.6

TFO
TFO Tandem Free Operation is accomplished after call setting up by in-band
negotiation of

two TC to its CODEC. TFO avoids unnecessary voice CODEC

conversion between transmitter and receiver among mobile subscribers to improve the
voice quality.
