As a result of licensing.RU10 Features – RNC Solution 6 SW License Key Controlled RNC Capacity 6. Also. the operator can purchase more software licence keys to increase the capacity. A mechanism is provided to measure and monitor:  average PS data throughput  number of AMR RABs  number of unlocked cells in the RNC An alarm is raised if the throughput or AMR capacity thresholds are exceeded. Software licence keys are used to control the following capacity parameters in the RNC2600:  packet-switched data throughput  AMR capacity  number of carriers As the network load increases. This allows cost savings.1 Feature Description 1/2 This feature provides a flexible mechanism for monitoring and controlling the capacity of an operational RNC2600. Control is provided by:  dropping GTP packets to limit the PS data throughput  disallowing new RAB connections  releasing low priority RAB connections to limit the AMR capacity An error message is generated when the unlocked cells exceed the licence limit. the RNC capacity parameters can be optimised based on the customer needs. Capacity can be increased by buying new licences.

Similar to the PS data throughput. © Nokia Siemens Networks 20 (26) . The alarms and warnings are cancelled when the PS throughput or AMR capacity remains below the thresholds for a pre-defined duration. The thresholds and the duration limits are operator configurable.2 Feature Description 2/2 The average PS data throughput is measured at the Iu-PS interface by monitoring GTP packets. The percentage of dropping is increased if the throughput remains above the threshold. Please move your mouse over the Alarms and Counters buttons to see the relevant tables. a “Licence capacity exceeded” alarm is raised. The PS throughput calculation takes into account the overhead factor due to the frame protocol (FP) header. When the PS throughput exceeds the licensed capacity.RU10 Features – RNC Solution 6. The RNC also periodically calculates the number of simultaneous AMR radio access bearers. Counters are used for PS throughput and AMR capacity measurements. When the PS throughput exceeds a threshold close to the licensed capacity. A small percentage of packets are then dropped in order to limit the throughput. thresholds for capacity warning and capacity exceeded alarms are predefined. a “Licence capacity warning” alarm is raised.
