a traffic processing centre. communication between AM/CM and signalling processing.Hardware Description Manual M900/M1800 Base Station Controller Frame Chapter 1 Frame Overview Chapter 1 Frame Overview The frame serves to combine all the boards plugged in the frame into an independent unit through the backplane. 1. TCSM Frame BIE Frame Central Database Frame (CDB Frame) Back Administrative Module Frame (BAM Frame) The BAM frame is a bridge between BSC and OMC. supports the broadcast short message service. etc. optic-electric conversion and E1 interface driving so that the inter-modular communication messages can be transmitted on the optical fiber. backplane. Designed for the BM. Table 1-1 BSC functional frames Functional frames Clock Frame Main Control Frame Communication Control Frame Transmission Interface Frame Function description The clock frame phase-locks upper-level MSC or BITS clock reference resources and provides the AM/CM and BM with stable clock sources. the BIE frame presents an Abis interface in between BSC and BTS. The communication control unit mainly manages and controls the system. The communication control frame is the control centre of AM/CM. guide rail. The CDB frame. The clock frame is shown in Figure 1-1. front & back beams. The main control frame carries out management and control of the BM. The latter performs the operation & maintenance of the BSC via OMC. The TCSM frame fulfills the functions of transcoding / rate adaptation and sub-multiplexing. Huawei Technologies Proprietary 1-1 . left & right side plates. The functional frames of BSC and their functions are listed in Table 1-1. The transmission interface frame implements multiplexing/demultiplexing of inter-modular speech channels and signalling links.1 Frame Structure The hardware of a frame consists of finished board.

The transmission interface frame and the main control frame are twice as high as common frames. 1. which decreases tremendously the connection lines at the back of the backplane and enhances the reliability of the overall unit.Hardware Description Manual M900/M1800 Base Station Controller Frame Chapter 1 Frame Overview (1) Left side plate (5) Plug-in board (9) Upper back beam (2) Upper front beam (6) Dummy handle bar baffle (10) Guide rail (3) Name label (7) Plug-in frame guide rail (4) Lower front beam (8) Right side plate Figure 1-1 Schematic diagram of frame structure Except for the transmission interface frame and the main control frame. The corresponding relations between frames and backplanes are shown in Table 1-2. is a four-layered printed board. For the convenience of understanding. an essential constituent part of the frame. the other frames are identical in form and specifications with that shown in the above diagram.2 Backplane The backplane. Frames communicate with one another via the connection lines at the back of the backplane. Table 1-2 Correspondence between frames and backplanes Backplane CKB MCB* FIO MCB* Clock Frame Communication Control Frame Transmission Interface Frame Main Control Frame Corresponding frame Huawei Technologies Proprietary 1-2 . The boards in one frame are linked with the tracks in the backplane. the backplanes will be described in the following sections along with the frames.

They can be distinguished by their board name: the name of backplane in Communication Control Frame is C821MCB.Hardware Description Manual M900/M1800 Base Station Controller Frame Chapter 1 Frame Overview Backplane BIB TCB BIE Frame TCSM Frame Corresponding frame Note: The backplane in Communication Control Frame and backplane in Main Control Frame are different. while the name of backplane in Main Control Frame is CB02MCB. although their names are the same (MCB).
