About This Document

Organization
1 Changes in eNodeB Commissioning Guide This chapter describes the changes in eNodeB Commissioning Guide. 2 Commissioning Mode The eNodeB supports the following commissioning modes: PnP remote commissioning, local commissioning using a Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive, and local commissioning on the LMT. Each commissioning mode can be applied to the scenario where the SeGW is deployed and the scenario where no SeGW is deployed. In the security scenario, PnP remote commissioning is classified into PnP remote commissioning in unified encryption mode and PnP remote commissioning in differentiated encryption mode; local commissioning using a USB flash drive is classified into local commissioning using a USB flash drive in unified encryption mode and local commissioning using a USB flash drive in differentiated encryption mode. You can select a commissioning mode based on site conditions. PnP remote commissioning is recommended. 3 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (Without the SeGW) This chapter describes the following procedures when no security gateway (SeGW) is deployed: eNodeB automatic discovery, plug and play (PnP) remote commissioning, local commissioning using a Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive, and local commissioning on the LMT. 4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW) This chapter describes the following procedures when the SeGW is deployed in the network: eNodeB automatic discovery, PnP remote commissioning in unified encryption mode, PnP remote commissioning in differentiated encryption mode, local commissioning using a USB flash drive in unified encryption mode, local commissioning using a USB flash drive in differentiated encryption mode, and local commissioning on the LMT. 5 Appendix This chapter describes how to encrypt files in a Universal Serial Bus (USB) storage device and provides the eNodeB commissioning data sheet. 6 FAQ This chapter describes some common problems and solutions during commissioning.

Prerequisites
l

Commissioning Mode

The eNodeB supports the following commissioning modes: PnP remote commissioning, local commissioning using a Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive, and local commissioning on the LMT. Each commissioning mode can be applied to the scenario where the SeGW is deployed and the scenario where no SeGW is deployed. In the security scenario, PnP remote commissioning is classified into PnP remote commissioning in unified encryption mode and PnP remote commissioning in differentiated encryption mode; local commissioning using a USB flash drive is classified into local commissioning using a USB flash drive in unified encryption mode and local commissioning using a USB flash drive in differentiated encryption mode. You can select a commissioning mode based on site conditions. PnP remote commissioning is recommended.

Requirements for the device status and commissioning environment are described as follows: All hardware devices and cables have been properly installed. For details, see related installation guides, which can be obtained at http://support.huawei.com/. The eNodeB has passed a hardware check before power-on. Before remote commissioning on the M2000, you have installed the mediation software matching the target version of the eNodeB to be commissioned on the M2000 server.

Requirements for the network are described as follows: The eNodeB is connected to the mobility management entity (MME) or serving gateway (S-GW) in the evolved packet core (EPC), and the MME or S-GW is configured with the interconnection data required for commissioning and can provide the basic functions of the EPC.

Requirements for data configuration are described as follows: Based on live network and eNodeB design requirements, the eNodeB configuration data are configured using the configuration management express (CME) or man-machine language (MML) command. For details, see eNodeB Initial Configuration Guide.

Application Scenario
Table 2-1 lists the application description for each commissioning scenario.

3 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (Without the SeGW)

eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (Without the SeGW)

About This Chapter


This chapter describes the following procedures when no security gateway (SeGW) is deployed: eNodeB automatic discovery, plug and play (PnP) remote commissioning, local commissioning using a Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive, and local commissioning on the LMT. 3.1 Overview of eNodeB Automatic Discovery (Without the SeGW) During eNodeB commissioning, the eNodeB sets up an operation and maintenance (OM) channel with the M2000 using automatic discovery. This process does not require manual intervention. 3.2 PnP Remote Commissioning (Without the SeGW) To commission an eNodeB when no SeGW is deployed in the network, you need to enable the plug and play (PnP) function of the eNodeB on the M2000 client. After the faults (if any) occurred during automatic commissioning are rectified and the commissioning procedure is complete, the eNodeB can work properly. 3.3 Local Commissioning Using a USB Flash Drive (Without the SeGW) To perform local eNodeB commissioning using a USB flash drive when no SeGW is deployed, you need to upgrade the eNodeB software and data configuration files using a Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive, and check the running status of indicators on the eNodeB. Then, create an eNodeB commissioning task on the M2000. 3.4 Local Commissioning on the LMT(Without the SeGW) To commission an eNodeB on local using a local maintenance terminal (LMT), you need to upgrade the eNodeB software, download the configuration files, commission the antenna line devices (ALDs), and check the running status of the eNodeB on the LMT. Then, establish the operation and maintenance (O&M) channel between the eNodeB and the M2000 on the M2000 server.

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

3 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (Without the SeGW)

3.1 Overview of eNodeB Automatic Discovery (Without the SeGW)


During eNodeB commissioning, the eNodeB sets up an operation and maintenance (OM) channel with the M2000 using automatic discovery. This process does not require manual intervention.

Introduction to the Automatic Discovery Process


Automatic discovery is a process during which the eNodeB is powered on and sets up an OM channel with the M2000 after the hardware is installed. If the eNodeB and the M2000 server are deployed on different network segments, you need to configure the router closest to the eNodeB on the path between the eNodeB and the M2000 server as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) relay. The IP address of the DHCP server for the M2000 is used as the DHCP relay address.
NOTE

If the M2000 server is deployed by using Server Load-Sharing (SLS), the previous IP address of the M2000 DHCP server refers to the IP address of the master M2000 server.

eNodeB Automatic Discovery Process


The eNodeB automatic discovery process varies according to the commissioning scenario. eNodeB Automatic Discovery During PnP Remote Commissioning Figure 3-1 shows the eNodeB automatic discovery process in this scenario. The process is as follows: 1. 2. 3. The eNodeB performs power on self-test (POST). The eNodeB learns virtual local area networks (VLANs) and obtains VLAN IDs (in VLAN networking scenarios). The eNodeB sends a DHCP request to the DHCP server provided by the M2000 to obtain the information, such as OM IP address, OM IP mask, IP address of the M2000, and IP mask of the M2000. The eNodeB sets up an OM channel with the M2000 after receiving a response to the DHCP request from the M2000. The eNodeB downloads and activates the eNodeB software and configuration files from the M2000.
NOTE

4. 5.

l When the M2000 server is deployed by using SLS, if you want to create an eNodeB on the master server, the IP address of the M2000 refers to the IP address of the master server; if if you want to create an eNodeB on the slave server, the IP address of the M2000 refers to the IP address of the slave server. l Check DHCP message in the following ways: l Log in to the LMT and create a PnP tracing task on the LMT. For details, see eNodeB LMT User Guide. l Log in to the M2000 client, choose Configuration > DHCP Configuration Management. The DHCP Configuration Management tab page is displayed. In the Server Information area on the DHCP Configuration Management tab page, check the DHCP message.

eNodeB Automatic Discovery During Local Commissioning Using a USB Flash Drive Figure 3-2 shows the eNodeB automatic discovery process in this scenario. The process is as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. Insert the commissioning USB flash drive into the USB port on the eNodeB. The eNodeB performs power on self-test (POST). The eNodeB reads and activates the eNodeB software and configuration files in the USB flash drive, and then automatically resets. The eNodeB sets up an OM link with the M2000.

3 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (Without the SeGW)

3.2.3 Creating an eNodeB Commissioning Task


This section describes how to create an eNodeB commissioning task on the M2000 client after commissioning preparations are complete.

Prerequisites
l l l l You have logged in to the M2000 client. eNodeB commissioning preparations are complete. If the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, radio network planning engineers need to plan the area to which the eNodeB belongs. If the eNodeB and the M2000 server are located on different network segments, you need to configure the router nearest to the eNodeB as the DHCP relay. In an insecure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In a secure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the common DHCP server IP address and on the security gateway, you need to set the IP address of the DHCP server to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In situations where the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, the preceding DHCP server IP address of the M2000 refers to the host IP address.

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Configuration > Auto Deployment > NodeB Auto Deployment from the main menu of the Configuration > Auto Deployment > eNodeB Auto Deployment client. The eNodeB Auto Deployment window is displayed. Step 2 Select deployment lists. 1. 2. Click . The Import Deployment List dialog box is displayed.

Step Wait for manual operation

Description After the OM channel is set up, the status of the commissioning task changes to Waiting for manual operation. Manually confirm the completion and proceed with the commissioning after the commissioning environment of the network is ready. The M2000 automatically checks whether the current eNodeB version is the same as the target software version given in the deployment list. If the versions are not the same, the M2000 automatically downloads software from the server to the eNodeB. The M2000 downloads the desired configuration file from the server to the eNodeB based on the target version information. Activate the eNodeB configuration data (takes effect after next reset) and then activate the software (automatic reset). Only the BTS3202E is supported in eNodeB auto deployment. When some eNodeB functions are restricted because the eNodeB uses the default license upon delivery, you need to install a commissioning license. The commissioning license has time restriction. You need to replace the commissioning license with the commercial one as soon as possible after the eNodeB commissioning is complete. The target RET antenna software version is provided by antenna line device (ALD) suppliers and saved on the local PC. l RET antennas managed by eNodeBs on the sites must be commissioned. l If an eNodeB and a NodeB share antennas and the antennas are managed by the NodeB, you do not need to commission the RET antennas. l When antennas are managed by the management system of a third party, you do not need to commission RET antennas.

(Optional) Commissioning the RET Antenna on the M2000


This section describes how to use MML commands to commission the remote electrical tilt (RET) antenna on the M2000. If tasks for RET commissioning in the commissioning phase are not selected on the M2000, the M2000 does not perform RET commissioning after the commissioning phase starts. In this case, you need to use MML commands to commission the RET antenna.

Prerequisites
l l l l l l The antenna line device (ALD) is installed correctly. The LMT communicates with the eNodeB properly. The RET software and data configuration file are available. The FTP server functions properly and is connected to the eNodeB correctly. Each FTP user has the permission to read a specified folder. There is no firewall between the FTP server and the eNodeB.

Context
l Commissioning the RET antenna includes downloading the RET software and data configuration file, calibrating the RET antenna, setting the RET downtilt, and query RET overcurrent or undercurrent alarms. The RET downtilt must be configured based on the planned network data. Otherwise, the RET downtilt affects antenna coverage.

Procedure
Step 1 Set the ALD power switch and overcurrent or undercurrent alarm thresholds. If... The RET is connected using the RET port The RET is connected using the antenna port on the RRU or RFU Run... MOD RETPORT MOD ANTENNAPORT

NOTE

The ALD power switch is OFF by default. Before using the RET, set the ALD power switch to ON and set current alarm thresholds. If the current exceeds the overcurrent or undercurrent alarm threshold, the ALD power switch automatically turns off. This affects the subsequent RET commissioning.

Step 2 Scan the ALD connected to the RRU. MML command: SCN ALD Step 3 Add an RET antenna. MML command: ADD RET Step 4 Check whether the RET antenna is working. If the RET antenna is not working, contact Huawei for technical support.

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

3 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (Without the SeGW)

3.3.3 Downloading and Activating the Software, Data Configuration File, and License File Using a USB Flash Drive
The eNodeB automatically downloads the software, data configuration file and license file from the USB flash drive. After the download is complete, the eNodeB automatically activates the software, data configuration file, and the license file. Then, the eNodeB is reset.

Prerequisites
l l A USB flash drive is ready. The required files are saved in the USB flash drive. The hardware such as remote radio units (RRUs) and LTE baseband processing units (LBBPs) have been properly connected.

CAUTION
When you save the required files into the USB flash drive, ensure that the locking switch on the USB flash drive is disabled. In other words, the USB flash drive must be writable.

Context
Before downloading files from a USB flash drive, the eNodeB verifies the names and formats of the files. Before downloading the software and data configuration file, the eNodeB automatically checks the working mode of the RRU. Then, the eNodeB downloads and activates the corresponding software and data configuration file based on the working mode of the RRU. You must pay attention to the following points when you download and activate the software, data configuration file, and license file using the USB flash drive: l If the software and data configuration file in the USB flash drive are already activated, they cannot be reactivated for the same eNodeB because of the cyclic redundancy check (CRC) function. The CRC function can prevent the software and data configuration file from being reactivated when the USB flash drive is always inserted into the eNodeB. The CRC function can also prevent the eNodeB from being reset again after eNodeB deployment using the USB flash drive. If the USB flash drive contains only the eNodeB software and data configuration file, the eNodeB downloads and activates the eNodeB software, and then downloads and activates the data configuration file. If the eNodeB software or data configuration file is missing in the USB flash drive, the eNodeB performs the following steps: If the software is missing, the eNodeB downloads and activates the data configuration file and license file except the software. If the data configuration file is missing, the eNodeB upgrades to the minimum configuration of the target version and downloads and activates the license file except the data configuration file. If the license file is missing, the eNodeB downloads and activates the software and data configuration file except the license file. l
Issue 04 (2012-06-29)

If the eNodeB software upgrade fails, the eNodeB will roll back to the source version.

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

3 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (Without the SeGW)

Before downloading and activating the data configuration file, the eNodeB does not check the compatibility between the data configuration file and the eNodeB software version. The eNodeB performs the following activities: If the target software version is not the same as the active software version, the eNodeB checks the mapping between the data configuration file and the software after the software is upgraded and the eNodeB is reset. If the software is incompatible with the data configuration file or the download and activation of the data configuration file fail, the eNodeB upgrades to the minimum configuration of the target version. If the target software version is the same as the active software version, the eNodeB checks the mapping between the data configuration file and the software without upgrading the software. If the software is incompatible with the data configuration file or the download and activation of the data configuration file fail, the eNodeB uses the data configuration file of the source version.

The eNodeB does not download or activate the eNodeB software, data configuration file, or license file from the USB flash drive in any of the following cases: The eNodeB software and data configuration file or their saving paths do not exist in the USB flash drive. The target software version is the same as the active software version. In this case, the eNodeB software cannot be downloaded or activated, but the data configuration file and license file can be downloaded and activated. The data configuration file is the same as the active data configuration. In this case, the data configuration file cannot be downloaded or activated, but the software and license file can be downloaded and activated. The license file cannot be downloaded, but the software and data configuration file can be downloaded and activated in any of the following cases: The license file to be downloaded is not the commissioning license. The license file to be downloaded is the commissioning license, but the value of ESN is not ANY. The configurations or the names of the license file to be downloaded and the active license file are the same.

Procedure
Step 1 Check whether the eNodeB is powered on. If it is not powered on, power on the eNodeB. If it is already powered on, go to Step 2.
NOTE

Ensure that the RRU is powered on and the common public radio interface (CPRI) connections are correct before you power on the eNodeB. Check for faults by monitoring the CPRI indicator status on the LBBP after the eNodeB is powered on. For details, see 5.3 Checking the Status of Indicators.

Step 2 When the eNodeB operates properly, insert the USB flash drive into the USB port on the BBU3900 main control board. If an LMPT is used, the USB port is shown in Figure 3-15; if an UMPT is used, the USB port is shown in Figure 3-16.

Step 3 Wait for the eNodeB to automatically upgrade the software and data configuration file. If the download or activation fails, commission the eNodeB by updating the software and data configuration file in the USB flash drive or using a new USB flash drive. If the download or activation still fails, perform the local eNodeB commissioning on the LMT. When the software and data configuration file are being upgraded, the normal status of the indicators on the USB flash drive and main control board is shown in Table 3-15. If the indicators are abnormal, see 5.3 Checking the Status of Indicators.

Follow-up Procedure

CAUTION
The eNodeB software package contains the LMT software. Before downloading the eNodeB software package, pay attention to the following points: l When the LMPT is used: the speed of writing to the flash memory is limited, the LMPT does not support download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive. To reduce the eNodeB deployment duration, some of the files of the LMT software are automatically downloaded from the M2000 to the eNodeB four hours after the eNodeB deployment. If you need to use the LMT complete package immediately after the eNodeB deployment, run the SPL SOFTWARE command on the M2000 after the eNodeB is connected to the M2000. Set Delay Download File Supply Flag to YES(Supply File that Support Delay). The remaining files of LMT software are downloaded to the eNodeB. If you want the LMPT to support download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive, when preparing the files in the USB flash drive, configure the value of WEBLMT from the default configuration files as YES (case-insensitive). When the UMPT is used: the speed of writing to the flash memory increases. The UMPT supports download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive. Therefore, an LMT package is not required after software activation.

3.3.4 Uploading Data Files


Upload data files that are required for procedures of eNodeB commissioning. Data files required for procedures of eNodeB commissioning tasks are NE software versions, cold patches, hot patches, configuration data files, deployment lists, RET antenna software versions and configuration data files, RET antenna templates, and commissioning licenses.

Prerequisites
You have logged in to the M2000 client.

Context
You need to upload data files in the following scenarios: l l Prepare for the commissioning. Upload the required data files to the M2000 server before commissioning as required. The commissioning cannot be started because certain required data files are unavailable. The M2000 automatically checks whether data files required for customized procedures are available. If certain data files are unavailable, the commissioning cannot be started. Upload the required data files that are previously unavailable from the client to the M2000 server. The data files required for eNodeB commissioning need to be saved in specified paths on the M2000 server. For details, see Table 3-16.

3 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (Without the SeGW)

3.3.5 Creating an eNodeB Commissioning Task


This section describes how to create an eNodeB commissioning task on the M2000 client after commissioning preparations are complete.

Prerequisites
l l l l You have logged in to the M2000 client. eNodeB commissioning preparations are complete. If the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, radio network planning engineers need to plan the area to which the eNodeB belongs. If the eNodeB and the M2000 server are located on different network segments, you need to configure the router nearest to the eNodeB as the DHCP relay. In an insecure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In a secure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the common DHCP server IP address and on the security gateway, you need to set the IP address of the DHCP server to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In situations where the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, the preceding DHCP server IP address of the M2000 refers to the host IP address.

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Configuration > Auto Deployment > NodeB Auto Deployment from the main menu of the Configuration > Auto Deployment > eNodeB Auto Deployment client. The eNodeB Auto Deployment window is displayed. Step 2 Select deployment lists. 1. 2. Click . The Import Deployment List dialog box is displayed.

Step Wait for manual operation

Description After the OM channel is set up, the status of the commissioning task changes to Waiting for manual operation. Manually confirm the completion and proceed with the commissioning after the commissioning environment of the network is ready. The M2000 automatically checks whether the current eNodeB version is the same as the target software version given in the deployment list. If the versions are not the same, the M2000 automatically downloads software from the server to the eNodeB. The M2000 downloads the desired configuration file from the server to the eNodeB based on the target version information. Activate the eNodeB configuration data (takes effect after next reset) and then activate the software (automatic reset). Only the BTS3202E is supported in eNodeB auto deployment. When some eNodeB functions are restricted because the eNodeB uses the default license upon delivery, you need to install a commissioning license. The commissioning license has time restriction. You need to replace the commissioning license with the commercial one as soon as possible after the eNodeB commissioning is complete. The target RET antenna software version is provided by antenna line device (ALD) suppliers and saved on the local PC. l RET antennas managed by eNodeBs on the sites must be commissioned. l If an eNodeB and a NodeB share antennas and the antennas are managed by the NodeB, you do not need to commission the RET antennas. l When antennas are managed by the management system of a third party, you do not need to commission RET antennas.

(Optional) Commissioning the RET Antenna on the M2000


This section describes how to use MML commands to commission the remote electrical tilt (RET) antenna on the M2000. If tasks for RET commissioning in the commissioning phase are not selected on the M2000, the M2000 does not perform RET commissioning after the commissioning phase starts. In this case, you need to use MML commands to commission the RET antenna.

Prerequisites
l l l l l l The antenna line device (ALD) is installed correctly. The LMT communicates with the eNodeB properly. The RET software and data configuration file are available. The FTP server functions properly and is connected to the eNodeB correctly. Each FTP user has the permission to read a specified folder. There is no firewall between the FTP server and the eNodeB.

Context
l Commissioning the RET antenna includes downloading the RET software and data configuration file, calibrating the RET antenna, setting the RET downtilt, and query RET overcurrent or undercurrent alarms. The RET downtilt must be configured based on the planned network data. Otherwise, the RET downtilt affects antenna coverage.

Procedure
Step 1 Set the ALD power switch and overcurrent or undercurrent alarm thresholds. If... The RET is connected using the RET port The RET is connected using the antenna port on the RRU or RFU Run... MOD RETPORT MOD ANTENNAPORT

NOTE

The ALD power switch is OFF by default. Before using the RET, set the ALD power switch to ON and set current alarm thresholds. If the current exceeds the overcurrent or undercurrent alarm threshold, the ALD power switch automatically turns off. This affects the subsequent RET commissioning.

Step 2 Scan the ALD connected to the RRU. MML command: SCN ALD Step 3 Add an RET antenna. MML command: ADD RET Step 4 Check whether the RET antenna is working. If the RET antenna is not working, contact Huawei for technical support.

Figure 4-2 Networking in differentiated encryption mode

Generally, either unified encryption or differentiated encryption can be used for S1/X2/OM channels, depending on the operator's requirements. However, differentiated encryption is recommended if the data communication network (DCN) where the M2000 is located is directly connected to the non-security domain in the transport network as shown in Figure 4-3. In other words, the encryption mode to use mainly depends on the structure of the operator's transport network. Figure 4-3 A differentiated encryption example

When the SeGW is deployed in the network, the unified and differentiated encryption modes have the following differences during eNodeB deployment: l In unified encryption mode, the eNodeB and the M2000 belong to different domains, and data must pass through the SeGW before traveling to the eNodeB or M2000. Therefore, to communicate with the M2000, the eNodeB needs to set up an IPSec tunnel to the SeGW first during the channel self-setup procedure in deployment by PnP or during routine OM. In differentiated encryption mode, the eNodeB and the M2000 belong to the same domain, and data does not need to pass through the SeGW before traveling to the eNodeB or M2000. Therefore, the OM channel can be a plaintext or SSL connection. During the channel selfsetup procedure in deployment by PnP, the eNodeB can directly send DHCP messages to the DHCP server built in the M2000. Therefore, eNodeB deployment by PnP in differentiated encryption mode can be performed in the same way as in non-secure networking mode. For data configuration, the difference between the two encryption modes only lies in IPSec configuration.

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

4.1 Overview of eNodeB Automatic Discovery (with the SeGW)


During eNodeB commissioning, the eNodeB sets up an operation and maintenance (OM) channel with the M2000 using automatic discovery. This process does not require manual intervention.

eNodeB Automatic Discovery Process


Automatic discovery is a process during which the eNodeB is powered on and sets up an OM channel with the M2000 after the hardware is installed. If the eNodeB and the M2000 server are deployed on different network segments, you need to configure the router closest to the eNodeB on the path between the eNodeB and the M2000 server as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) relay. If the SeGW is deployed in the network, configure the IP address of the DHCP relay as the IP address of the public DHCP server on the router and configure the IP address of the M2000 DHCP server as the IP address of the DHCP server of the SeGW.
NOTE

If the M2000 server is deployed by using Server Load-Sharing (SLS), the previous IP address of the M2000 DHCP server refers to the IP address of the master M2000 server.

eNodeB Automatic Discovery Process


If the SeGW is deployed in the network, eNodeB data can be processed in unified encryption mode or differentiated encryption mode, and eNodeB data can be authenticated using the public key infrastructure (PKI)-based or Preshared Key (PSK)-based authentication mode. Therefore, when the SeGW is deployed in the network, the eNodeB automatic discovery process involves the following scenarios: l l l l l l l Plug and play (PnP) remote commissioning in unified encryption mode (using PKI) Local commissioning using a Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive in unified encryption mode (using PKI) Local commissioning using a USB in unified encryption mode (using PSK) PnP remote commissioning in differentiated encryption mode (using PKI) PnP remote commissioning in differentiated encryption mode (using PSK) Local commissioning using a USB flash drive in differentiated encryption mode (using PKI) Local commissioning using a USB flash drive in differentiated encryption mode (using PSK)
NOTE

When eNodeB data is processed in unified encryption mode, the eNodeB cannot obtain the preshared key when establishing IPSec tunnels during transmission. As a result, the PSK authentication mode cannot be used for eNodeB data authentication during PnP remote commissioning.

eNodeB Automatic Discovery During PnP Remote Commissioning in Unified Encryption Mode (Using PKI) Figure 4-4 shows the eNodeB automatic discovery process in this scenario. The process is as follows:

The eNodeB performs power on self-test (POST). Bind the eNodeB ID to the eNodeB using a bar code scanner to scan the bar code within 3 minutes after the eNodeB is powered on. If the M2000 binds the eNodeB using the electronic serial number (ESN) or Global Positioning System (GPS) information, skip this step. The eNodeB initiates IEEE802.1X-based access control authentication. The eNodeB scans VLANs to obtain VLAN IDs (in VLAN networking scenarios). Then, the eNodeB sends a DHCP request to the public DHCP server to obtain the following information: temporary OM IP address, temporary OM IP mask, IP address of the domain name server (DNS, if DNS is configured on the public DHCP server), default gateway, IP address of the Certification Authority (CA) server (if configured), IP address of the SeGW, CA port number, CA name, and IP address of the M2000. With the predefined Huawei device certificate, the eNodeB implements unidirectional authentication together with the CA server (authenticates the validity of the eNodeB) based on CMPv2 and automatically obtains the operator's device certificate and root certificate from the CA server. If the operator's device certificate and root certificate have been configured for the eNodeB, they do not need to be reobtained. The eNodeB sets up a temporary Internet protocol security (IPSec) tunnel with the SeGW after bidirectional security authentication is successfully performed using certificates. The eNodeB sets up a temporary SSL-encrypted OM channel with the M2000 through the IPSec tunnel. The eNodeB downloads and activates the eNodeB software and configuration files from the M2000 and automatically resets. After resetting, the eNodeB sets up a formal IPSec tunnel with the SeGW so that the eNodeB can set up a formal SSL-encrypted OM channel with the M2000 to start network operation.

l When the M2000 server is deployed by using SLS, if you want to create an eNodeB on the master server, the IP address of the M2000 refers to the IP address of the master server; if if you want to create an eNodeB on the slave server, the IP address of the M2000 refers to the IP address of the slave server. l If you want to check the DHCP message, log in to the LMT and create a PNP tracing task on the LMT. For details, see eNodeB LMT User Guide.

The process is as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. Insert the commissioning USB flash drive into the USB port on the eNodeB. The eNodeB performs POST. The eNodeB reads and activates the eNodeB software and configuration files in the USB flash drive, and then automatically resets. After resetting, the eNodeB accesses the operator's network using physical connections. If the eNodeB detects that the OMCH link is interrupted because there is no operator's device certificate and root certificate, the eNodeB initiates IEEE802.1X-based access control authentication (which is optional) and scans VLANs to obtain VLAN IDs (in VLAN networking scenarios). Then, the eNodeB sends a DHCP request to the public DHCP server to obtain the following information: temporary OM IP address, temporary OM IP mask, IP address of the DNS (if DNS is configured on the public DHCP server), default gateway, IP address of the CA server (if configured), IP address of the SeGW, CA port number, CA name, and IP address of the M2000. With the predefined Huawei device certificate, the eNodeB implements unidirectional authentication together with the CA server (authenticates the validity of the eNodeB) based on CMPv2 and automatically obtains the operator's device certificate and root certificate from the CA server.

Figure 4-11 shows a typical commissioning network with the SeGW. The network where the eNodeB is located is not in the same trusted domain as the network where the MME, SGW, and M2000 are located. Therefore, the SeGW must be used for secure communication between the eNodeB, MME, SGW, and M2000. Figure 4-11 Commissioning scenario with the SeGW

VLAN Acquisition
In VLAN networking, VLAN tags must be attached to packets sent by the eNodeB before the eNodeB communicates with other equipment. After the eNodeB is powered on, it cannot send a DHCP request or set up an OM channel with the M2000 because no VLAN ID is available. Therefore, the eNodeB must scan VLANs to obtain VLAN IDs after power-on. The process of

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

obtaining VLAN IDs is called VLAN acquisition, including VLAN detection and VLAN scanning. l VLAN detection: after an eNodeB is created on the M2000, the M2000 periodically sends VLAN detection packets to the eNodeB. The VLAN detection packets are routed to a router closest to the eNodeB. Then, the router sends Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) broadcast packets. After detecting the ARP packets, the eNodeB obtains VLAN IDs from the ARP packets and then sends a DHCP request. VLAN IDs are obtained in this way in scenarios without the SeGW. VLAN scanning: in scenarios with the SeGW, VLAN detection packets from the M2000 cannot be transmitted to the eNodeB because the SeGW does not initiate a connection to the eNodeB. Therefore, the eNodeB cannot learn VLAN IDs. In this case, the eNodeB can obtain VLAN IDs only by scanning VLANs. That is, before sending a DHCP request, the eNodeB sends a DHCP Discovery message using a VLAN ID ranging from 0 to 4094. If the public DHCP server receives the request message sent from the eNodeB, it sends a response message to the eNodeB. If the eNodeB receives a response message from the public DHCP server, it assumes that the VLAN ID is valid.
NOTE

In scenarios without the SeGW, the eNodeB may obtain the VLAN ID by VLAN detection and VLAN scanning simultaneously. In this case, it preferentially uses the VLAN ID obtained by VLAN detection to initiate a DHCP request.

4.2 PnP Remote Commissioning in Unified Encryption Mode (with the SeGW)
To commission an eNodeB when the SeGW is deployed, you need to enable the plug and play (PnP) function of the eNodeB on the M2000 client. After the faults (if any) occurred during automatic commissioning are rectified and the commissioning procedure is complete, the eNodeB can work properly.

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

Obtaining Digital Certificates


Before commissioning an eNodeB, prepare a Huawei root certificate on the CA server. The CA server uses the Huawei root certificate to authenticate the eNodeB before issuing operator's certificates to the eNodeB.

Context
Before eNodeB delivery, the Huawei root certificate and Huawei device certificate are preconfigured in the main control board of the eNodeB by default. The two certificates are permanently valid. l As a default trusted CA certificate, the Huawei root certificate has been loaded to the certificate storage area of an eNodeB before delivery. This certificate must be loaded to the CA server before eNodeB commissioning. In this way, the CA server can authenticate the eNodeB when the eNodeB applies for an operator's device certificate based on Certificate Management Protocol version 2 (CMPv2). The Huawei device certificate is the initial device certificate of an eNodeB. This certificate identifies the eNodeB when the eNodeB applies for an operator's device certificate based on CMPv2.

Figure 4-16 shows the procedure for obtaining digital certificates. Figure 4-16 Procedure for obtaining digital certificates

Procedure
Step 1 Obtain the Huawei root certificate. Step 2 Load the Huawei root certificate to the CA server. ----End

Configuring the Security Equipment


On the live networks, operators use different security gateway (SeGW) equipment with different configuration data. Based on the operators' network planning and network design, the equipment

is configured according to the user guide of a corresponding equipment type. The following configurations and operations are based on Huawei S6500 series Ethernet switches. If the eNodeB performs IEEE 802.1X-based access control, operations on authentication devices are based on Huawei Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) server.

Prerequisites
l l l Quidway S6500 Series Ethernet Switches Operation Manual is available. You can obtain the document from http://support.huawei.com. HUAWEI AAA Commissioning Guide is available. You can obtain the document from http://support.huawei.com. If IEEE 802.1X-based access control is adopted, the operator must use the authentication access equipment that supports IEEE 802.1X-based access control authentication and the corresponding AAA server that supports Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).

Context
When the SeGW is deployed, you are required to configure data for the SeGW. If eNodeB data is authenticated using digital certificates or Preshared Key (PSK), you must set the customized parameters, such as the IP addresses of the SeGW and M2000 server, on the public Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. In this way, the eNodeB can set up an Internet protocol security (IPSec) tunnel with the SeGW and can be connected to the M2000. When IEEE 802.1X-based access control authentication is adopted, you must configure the authentication access equipment and authentication server. Generally, the authentication server refers to the AAA server. l Table 4-5 describes the SeGW configuration. Table 4-5 SeGW configurations Item IP address Description Both the public SeGW and the serving SeGW should be configured with the IP address of the interface for the untrusted area on the eNodeB side and IP address of the interface for the trusted area on the evolved packet core (EPC) side. l Public SeGW: The routes to the M2000, eNodeB, and temporary operation and maintenance (O&M) IP address must be configured. l Serving SeGW: The routes to the M2000, S-GW, mobility management entity (MME), eNodeB port IP address, S1 signaling and service IP addresses, and O&M IP address must be configured. IKE local name The public SeGW and serving SeGW must be configured.

The purposes for configuring the public DHCP server are as follows: When an eNodeB sends messages to the public DHCP server to obtain customized information, the public DHCP server can identify that the eNodeB is Huawei eNodeB. Then, the public DHCP server returns the customized information to the eNodeB. The public DHCP server needs to configure the information for identifying Huawei eNodeB and the customized information related to Huawei equipment. The customized information provides necessary configuration information for the setup of the DHCP server with the SeGW deployed, as described in Table 4-6.

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

Procedure
Step 1 Check the configuration of the SeGW by referring to Table 4-5. Step 2 Configure the public DHCP server by referring to Table 4-6. Configuration methods vary according to different DHCP servers. The following part describes the DHCP server configuration using the interface IP address pool based on Huawei Quidway S6500. 1. 2. 3. 4. Run system-view to enter the system view. Run dhcp enable to enable DHCP services. Run interface vlanif vlan-id to enter the VLANIF view. Run ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length } to configure the IP address of the VLANIF interface. The range of addresses in the interface address pool equals to the network segment of IP addresses of this interface. Run dhcp select interface to configure the DHCP server to be in address pool mode. Run dhcp server lease { day day [ hour hour [ minute minute ] ] | unlimited } to configure the IP address lease. The IP address lease is one day. (Optional) Run dhcp server excluded-ip-address start-ip-address [ end-ip-address ] to configure the IP addresses that are not allocated in the DHCP address pool. Multiple IP address segments that are not allocated in the DHCP address pool can be configured by repeating this step. Configure the customized DHCP information of the address pool of a VLANIF by referring to Table 4-6. Apply the VLANIF on the physical port. Huawei Quidway S6500 will respond the DHCP request messages (DHCP Discover messages) that are sent to this physical port.

5. 6. 7.

8. 9.

The following shows the customized information on the DHCP server of Huawei Quidway S6500.

3. 4.

Run dot1x authentication-method { chap | pap | eap } to set the authentication method to EAP. Configure the VLAN and add the route relationship between the transmission network and AAA server. For example, run the vlan 4 command to add a VLAN whose ID is 4. Run the interface vlan 4 command to enter the VLAN view, and run the ip add 10.147.209.38 255.255.255.0 command to add an IP address and subnet mask for the VLAN. Run the ip route-static 10.166.27.48 24 10.147.209.1 command to add the switch-to-AAA server route relationship.

5.

Set the parameters of AAA server on the switch. Run the radius scheme accounting command to create a RADIUS solution named radius1, and enter the RADIUS view. Then, run the primary authentication 10.166.27.48 1812 command to set the port No. to 1812 and the IP address to 10.166.27.48 for the primary authentication server. Then, run key authentication itellin to set the authentication key to itellin.

For details, see Quidway S6500 Series Ethernet Switches Operation Manual. Step 4 Configure the eNodeB CA certificate for the AAA server. The AAA server may vary according to different operators. The descriptions here take the Huawei AAA server as an example. For details, see HUAWEI AAA Commissioning Guide. 1. 2. Upload the CA certificate of a terminal user to the iscc2/config/secert directory of infoX AAA server. Change the file names of the user certificate and private key in the SCPCFG.INI file. Ensure that the file names are consistent with the file names of the user certificate and private key uploaded in Step 4.1.

4.2.3 Creating an eNodeB Commissioning Task


This section describes how to create an eNodeB commissioning task on the M2000 client after commissioning preparations are complete.

Prerequisites
l l l l You have logged in to the M2000 client. eNodeB commissioning preparations are complete. If the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, radio network planning engineers need to plan the area to which the eNodeB belongs. If the eNodeB and the M2000 server are located on different network segments, you need to configure the router nearest to the eNodeB as the DHCP relay. In an insecure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In a secure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the common DHCP server IP address and on the security gateway, you need to set the IP address of the DHCP server to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In situations where the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, the preceding DHCP server IP address of the M2000 refers to the host IP address.

Commissioning the antenna system on the M2000 includes commissioning the remote electrical tilt (RET) and tower-mounted amplifier (TMA).

(Optional) Commissioning the RET Antenna on the M2000


This section describes how to use MML commands to commission the remote electrical tilt (RET) antenna on the M2000. If tasks for RET commissioning in the commissioning phase are not selected on the M2000, the M2000 does not perform RET commissioning after the commissioning phase starts. In this case, you need to use MML commands to commission the RET antenna.

Prerequisites
l l l l l l The antenna line device (ALD) is installed correctly. The LMT communicates with the eNodeB properly. The RET software and data configuration file are available. The FTP server functions properly and is connected to the eNodeB correctly. Each FTP user has the permission to read a specified folder. There is no firewall between the FTP server and the eNodeB.

Context
l Commissioning the RET antenna includes downloading the RET software and data configuration file, calibrating the RET antenna, setting the RET downtilt, and query RET overcurrent or undercurrent alarms. The RET downtilt must be configured based on the planned network data. Otherwise, the RET downtilt affects antenna coverage.

Procedure
Step 1 Set the ALD power switch and overcurrent or undercurrent alarm thresholds. If... The RET is connected using the RET port The RET is connected using the antenna port on the RRU or RFU Run... MOD RETPORT MOD ANTENNAPORT

NOTE

4.3 PnP Remote Commissioning in Differentiated Encryption Mode (with the SeGW)
To commission an eNodeB on the M2000 when the SeGW is deployed, you need to enable the plug and play (PnP) function of the eNodeB on the M2000 client. If any faults occur during automatic commissioning, rectify the faults. After the commissioning is complete, the eNodeB starts working properly. In this scenario, eNodeB service data is processed in differentiated encryption mode.

4.3.1 Commissioning Procedure


This section describes how to perform PnP remote commissioning in differentiated encryption mode. When eNodeB service data is processed in differentiated encryption mode, the eNodeB can use either PSK-based or PKI-based authentication when establishing IPSec tunnels during transmission. Therefore, PnP remote commissioning in differentiated encryption mode involves PSK-based authentication and PKI-based authentication. Figure 4-23 shows the commissioning procedure.

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

Obtaining Digital Certificates


Before commissioning an eNodeB, prepare a Huawei root certificate on the CA server and obtain an operator's root certificate. The CA server uses the Huawei root certificate to authenticate the eNodeB before issuing operator's certificates to the eNodeB. The eNodeB uses the operator's root certificate to authenticate the CA server before applying for an operator's device certificate. These digital certificates are required only if the PKI-based authentication is used. If the PSKbased authentication is used, skip this step. PKI is short for public key infrastructure, and PSK is short for Preshared Key.

Context
Before eNodeB delivery, the Huawei root certificate and Huawei device certificate are preconfigured in the main control board of the eNodeB by default. The two certificates are permanently valid. l As a default trusted CA certificate, the Huawei root certificate has been loaded to the certificate storage area of an eNodeB before delivery. This certificate must be loaded to the CA server before eNodeB commissioning. In this way, the CA server can authenticate the eNodeB when the eNodeB applies for an operator's device certificate based on Certificate Management Protocol version 2 (CMPv2). The Huawei device certificate is the initial device certificate of an eNodeB. This certificate identifies the eNodeB when the eNodeB applies for an operator's device certificate based on CMPv2.

Figure 4-27 shows the procedure for obtaining digital certificates. Figure 4-27 Procedure for obtaining digital certificates

Procedure
Step 1 Obtain the operator's root certificate. Step 2 Load the Huawei root certificate to the CA server. ----End

Configuring the Security Equipment


On the live networks, operators use different security gateway (SeGW) equipment with different configuration data. Based on the operators' network planning and network design, the equipment is configured according to the user guide of a corresponding equipment type. The following configurations and operations are based on Huawei S6500 series Ethernet switches. If the eNodeB performs IEEE 802.1X-based access control, operations on authentication devices are based on Huawei Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) server.

Prerequisites
l l l Quidway S6500 Series Ethernet Switches Operation Manual is available. You can obtain the document from http://support.huawei.com. HUAWEI AAA Commissioning Guide is available. You can obtain the document from http://support.huawei.com. If IEEE 802.1X-based access control is adopted, the operator must use the authentication access equipment that supports IEEE 802.1X-based access control authentication and the corresponding AAA server that supports Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).

Context
When the SeGW is deployed, you are required to configure data for the SeGW. When IEEE 802.1X-based access control authentication is adopted, you must configure the authentication access equipment and authentication server. Generally, the authentication server refers to the AAA server. Table 4-18 describes the SeGW configuration. Table 4-18 SeGW configuration Item IP address Description Both the public SeGW and the serving SeGW should be configured with the IP address of the interface for the untrusted area on the eNodeB side and IP address of the interface for the trusted area on the evolved packet core (EPC) side. l Public SeGW: The routes to the M2000, eNodeB, and temporary operation and maintenance (O&M) IP address must be configured. l Serving SeGW: The routes to the M2000, S-GW, mobility management entity (MME), eNodeB port IP address, S1 signaling and service IP addresses, and O&M IP address must be configured. IKE local name The public SeGW and serving SeGW must be configured.

Step 2 Configure the authentication access equipment.


NOTE

This step is required only if the PKI-based authentication is used. If the PSK-based authentication is used, skip this step.

The authentication access equipment may vary according to different operators. Huawei Quidway S6500 series Ethernet switches are taken as an example. 1. Enable the global IEEE 802.1X-based access control feature. Run sys to enter the system command state. Run dot1x to enable the global IEEE 802.1Xbased access control feature. 2. Enable the IEEE 802.1X feature on the port. For example, to enable the IEEE 802.1X feature for port 3, run the interface GigabitEthernet 1/0/3 command to enter the port view, and run the dot1x command to enable IEEE 802.1X feature. 3. 4. Run dot1x authentication-method { chap | pap | eap } to set the authentication method to EAP. Configure the VLAN and add the route relationship between the transmission network and AAA server. For example, run the vlan 4 command to add a VLAN whose ID is 4. Run the interface vlan 4 command to enter the VLAN view, and run the ip add 10.147.209.38 255.255.255.0 command to add an IP address and subnet mask for the VLAN. Run the ip route-static 10.166.27.48 24 10.147.209.1 command to add the switch-to-AAA server route relationship. 5. Set the parameters of AAA server on the switch. Run the radius scheme accounting command to create a RADIUS solution named radius1, and enter the RADIUS view. Then, run the primary authentication 10.166.27.48 1812 command to set the port No. to 1812 and the IP address to 10.166.27.48 for the primary authentication server. Then, run key authentication itellin to set the authentication key to itellin. For details, see Quidway S6500 Series Ethernet Switches Operation Manual. Step 3 Configure the eNodeB CA certificate for the AAA server. The AAA server may vary according to different operators. The descriptions here take the Huawei AAA server as an example. For details, see HUAWEI AAA Commissioning Guide. 1. 2. Upload the CA certificate of a terminal user to the iscc2/config/secert directory of infoX AAA server. Change the file names of the user certificate and private key in the SCPCFG.INI file. Ensure that the file names are consistent with the file names of the user certificate and private key uploaded in Step 3.1.

4.3.6 Obtaining an Operator's Device Certificate Manually (with PKI)


If the PKI-based authentication is used in differentiated encryption mode, an Internet protocol security (IPSec) tunnel must be set up between the eNodeB and the security gateway (SeGW) to ensure that cells are working properly. Before the tunnel setup, digital certificates are required for the authentication between the eNodeB and the SeGW. Therefore, after the eNodeB software and data configuration files are activated, and the eNodeB is connected to the M2000, you must manually obtain an operator's device certificate from the M2000. This section describes how to manually obtain an operator's device certificate.

Prerequisites
l If the direct or M2000-assisted certificate management mode based on Certificate Management Protocol (CMP) is used for applying for certificates, the CA server must be deployed with the Huawei root certificate loaded. If the direct certificate management mode based on CMP is used for applying for certificates, the eNodeB data configuration file must contain correct information about the CA and certificate request file. APPCERT in the eNodeB data configuration file is set to appcert.pem, which indicates the preconfigured device certificate. If the operator's device certificate is applied for in offline mode, this setting is not required.

Procedure
l If the eNodeB communicates with the CA server through the non-security domain and CMP is used as the method for updating certificates, the direct certificate management mode based on CMP is recommended. The procedure is as follows:

Checking for External Environment Alarms


This section describes how to check for external environment alarms. After setting the parameters for environment alarms, you need to verify the parameter settings by checking for external environment alarms.

Context
You can manually trigger several external environment alarms to verify the parameter settings. If external environment alarms can be reported, the parameter settings are correct.

Procedure
Step 1 Manually trigger several external environment alarms. For details, see the appendix Triggering Monitoring Device Alarms. Step 2 Check for the external environment alarms on the M2000. For details, see Rectifying Faults and Clearing Alarms Against the eNodeB Health Check Report. If external environment alarms can be reported, the parameter settings are correct. If no external environment alarm is reported, set the parameters again or contact Huawei for technical support. ----End

Example
Assuming that a water sensor is installed for the fan monitoring unit (FMU), to check whether the parameter settings for water damage alarms are correct, perform the following operations: 1. 2. Run the MOD FMU command with WS_DISABLE(Water-Immersed Sensor Disabled) in Special Boolean Alarm Flag cleared. Immerse the water sensor or its probe in water for more than 10s, and check whether water damage alarms are reported. If water damage alarms are reported, the parameter settings are correct.

4.3.11 Setting the Maximum Output Power for RRUs or RFUs


This section describes how to set the maximum output power for remote radio units (RRUs) or radio frequency units (RFUs) according to the local regulations on power specifications.
Issue 04 (2012-06-29) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. 255

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

Prerequisites
l l l The RRU or RFU is connected properly. The local maintenance terminal (LMT) or M2000 communicates properly with the eNodeB. You have logged in to the M2000 as administrator.

Context
The maximum output power of the RRU or RFU is specified by the local operator. If an eNodeB is configured with multiple RRUs or RFUs, you must use MML commands to manually reset RRUs or RFUs one by one. If RRUs or RFUs are cascaded, set the maximum output power for the lowest-level RRU or RFU and then for other RRUs or RFUs to reduce the impact on upper-level RRUs. The maximum output power for the RRU or RFU needs to be set only if it is less than the maximum output power that the RRU or RFU can physically achieve.

Procedure
Step 1 Run the DSP RRU command to query the cabinet No., subrack No., slot No., and transmit channel No. of the RRU or RFU. Step 2 Run the DSP TXBRANCH command to query the maximum output power supported by the RRU or RFU based on the information queried in Step 1. Step 3 Run the LOC RRUTC command to set the maximum output power for the RRU or RFU. Step 4 Run the RST BRD command to reset the RRU or RFU. Step 5 Run the DSP TXBRANCH command to check whether the setting of the maximum output power for the RRU or RFU takes effect. If... The maximum output power takes effect The maximum transmit power fails to be set Then... No further action is required. Set the maximum output power within the power specifications supported by the RRU or RFU. If the maximum output power still fails to be set, contact Huawei for technical support.

NOTE

Before returning a used but not faulty RRU or RFU to the Spare Parts Center, run the LOC RRUTC command to set the maximum output power (TXMAXPWR) to 0 and reset the RRU or RFU for the setting to take effect.

certificates to the eNodeB. This digital certificate is required only if the PKI-based authentication is used. If the PSK-based authentication is used, skip this step. PKI is short for public key infrastructure, and PSK is short for Preshared Key.

Context
Before eNodeB delivery, the Huawei root certificate and Huawei device certificate are preconfigured in the main control board of the eNodeB by default. The two certificates are permanently valid. l As a default trusted CA certificate, the Huawei root certificate has been loaded to the certificate storage area of an eNodeB before delivery. This certificate must be loaded to the CA server before eNodeB commissioning. In this way, the CA server can authenticate the eNodeB when the eNodeB applies for an operator's device certificate based on Certificate Management Protocol version 2 (CMPv2). The Huawei device certificate is the initial device certificate of an eNodeB. This certificate identifies the eNodeB when the eNodeB applies for an operator's device certificate based on CMPv2.

Figure 4-35 shows the procedure for obtaining the digital certificate. Figure 4-35 Procedure for obtaining the digital certificate

is configured according to the user guide of a corresponding equipment type. The following configurations and operations are based on Huawei S6500 series Ethernet switches. If the eNodeB performs IEEE 802.1X-based access control, operations on authentication devices are based on Huawei Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) server.

Prerequisites
l l l Quidway S6500 Series Ethernet Switches Operation Manual is available. You can obtain the document from http://support.huawei.com. HUAWEI AAA Commissioning Guide is available. You can obtain the document from http://support.huawei.com. If IEEE 802.1X-based access control is adopted, the operator must use the authentication access equipment that supports IEEE 802.1X-based access control authentication and the corresponding AAA server that supports Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).

Context
When the SeGW is deployed, you are required to configure data for the SeGW. If digital certificates are required for the PKI-based authentication, the customized parameters, such as the IP addresses of the SeGW and M2000 server, must be set on the public Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. In this way, an Internet protocol security (IPSec) tunnel between the eNodeB and the SeGW can be set up, and the eNodeB can be connected to the M2000. When IEEE 802.1X-based access control authentication is adopted, you must configure the authentication access equipment and authentication server. Generally, the authentication server refers to the AAA server. l Table 4-29 describes the SeGW configuration. Table 4-29 SeGW configuration Item IP address Description Both the public SeGW and the serving SeGW should be configured with the IP address of the interface for the untrusted area on the eNodeB side and IP address of the interface for the trusted area on the evolved packet core (EPC) side. l Public SeGW: The routes to the M2000, eNodeB, and temporary operation and maintenance (O&M) IP address must be configured. l Serving SeGW: The routes to the M2000, S-GW, mobility management entity (MME), eNodeB port IP address, S1 signaling and service IP addresses, and O&M IP address must be configured.

The purposes for configuring the public DHCP server are as follows: When an eNodeB sends messages to the public DHCP server to obtain customized information, the public DHCP server can identify that the eNodeB is Huawei eNodeB. Then, the public DHCP server returns the customized information to the eNodeB. The public DHCP server needs to configure the information for identifying Huawei eNodeB and the customized information related to Huawei equipment. The customized information provides necessary configuration information for the setup of the DHCP server with the SeGW deployed, as described in Table 4-30.

Description

Application Scenario

DHCP server IP address provided by the M2000

This is the IP address of the DHCP server provided by the M2000. You can configure IP addresses of multiple DHCP servers.

Configure this IP address when the DHCP process is used twice and unicast is used for the secondary DHCP process when the SeGW is deployed.

When the authentication access equipment is used, the authentication mode and the authentication method must be set to Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) and EAP respectively, because certificate authentication is adopted currently. When the AAA server is used, the CA certificates of terminal users must be uploaded, and the file names of the user certificate and private key must be configured for the AAA server.

Procedure
Step 1 Check the configuration of the SeGW by referring to Table 4-29. Step 2 Configure the public DHCP server by referring to Table 4-30. Configuration methods vary according to different DHCP servers. The following part describes the DHCP server configuration using the interface IP address pool based on Huawei Quidway S6500. 1. 2. 3. 4. Run system-view to enter the system view. Run dhcp enable to enable DHCP services. Run interface vlanif vlan-id to enter the VLANIF view. Run ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length } to configure the IP address of the VLANIF interface. The range of addresses in the interface address pool equals to the network segment of IP addresses of this interface. Run dhcp select interface to configure the DHCP server to be in address pool mode. Run dhcp server lease { day day [ hour hour [ minute minute ] ] | unlimited } to configure the IP address lease. The IP address lease is one day. (Optional) Run dhcp server excluded-ip-address start-ip-address [ end-ip-address ] to configure the IP addresses that are not allocated in the DHCP address pool. Multiple IP address segments that are not allocated in the DHCP address pool can be configured by repeating this step. Configure the customized DHCP information of the address pool of a VLANIF by referring to Table 4-30. Apply the VLANIF on the physical port. Huawei Quidway S6500 will respond the DHCP request messages (DHCP Discover messages) that are sent to this physical port.

Step 3 Configure the authentication access equipment. The authentication access equipment may vary according to different operators. Huawei Quidway S6500 series Ethernet switches are taken as an example. 1. Enable the global IEEE 802.1X-based access control feature. Run sys to enter the system command state. Run dot1x to enable the global IEEE 802.1Xbased access control feature. Enable the IEEE 802.1X feature on the port. For example, to enable the IEEE 802.1X feature for port 3, run the interface GigabitEthernet 1/0/3 command to enter the port view, and run the dot1x command to enable IEEE 802.1X feature. Run dot1x authentication-method { chap | pap | eap } to set the authentication method to EAP. Configure the VLAN and add the route relationship between the transmission network and AAA server. For example, run the vlan 4 command to add a VLAN whose ID is 4. Run the interface vlan 4 command to enter the VLAN view, and run the ip add 10.147.209.38 255.255.255.0 command to add an IP address and subnet mask for the VLAN. Run the ip route-static 10.166.27.48 24 10.147.209.1 command to add the switch-to-AAA server route relationship. 5. Set the parameters of AAA server on the switch. Run the radius scheme accounting command to create a RADIUS solution named radius1, and enter the RADIUS view. Then, run the primary authentication 10.166.27.48 1812 command to set the port No. to 1812 and the IP address to 10.166.27.48 for the primary authentication server. Then, run key authentication itellin to set the authentication key to itellin.

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

4.4.3 Downloading and Activating the Software, Data Configuration File, and License File Using a USB Flash Drive
The eNodeB automatically downloads the software, data configuration file and license file from the USB flash drive. After the download is complete, the eNodeB automatically activates the software, data configuration file, and the license file. Then, the eNodeB is reset.

Prerequisites
l l A USB flash drive is ready. The required files are saved in the USB flash drive. The hardware such as remote radio units (RRUs) and LTE baseband processing units (LBBPs) have been properly connected.

CAUTION
When you save the required files into the USB flash drive, ensure that the locking switch on the USB flash drive is disabled. In other words, the USB flash drive must be writable.

Context
Before downloading files from a USB flash drive, the eNodeB verifies the names and formats of the files. Before downloading the software and data configuration file, the eNodeB automatically checks the working mode of the RRU. Then, the eNodeB downloads and activates the corresponding software and data configuration file based on the working mode of the RRU. You must pay attention to the following points when you download and activate the software, data configuration file, and license file using the USB flash drive: l If the software and data configuration file in the USB flash drive are already activated, they cannot be reactivated for the same eNodeB because of the cyclic redundancy check (CRC) function. The CRC function can prevent the software and data configuration file from being reactivated when the USB flash drive is always inserted into the eNodeB. The CRC function can also prevent the eNodeB from being reset again after eNodeB deployment using the USB flash drive. If the USB flash drive contains only the eNodeB software and data configuration file, the eNodeB downloads and activates the eNodeB software, and then downloads and activates the data configuration file. If the eNodeB software or data configuration file is missing in the USB flash drive, the eNodeB performs the following steps: If the software is missing, the eNodeB downloads and activates the data configuration file and license file except the software. If the data configuration file is missing, the eNodeB upgrades to the minimum configuration of the target version and downloads and activates the license file except the data configuration file. If the license file is missing, the eNodeB downloads and activates the software and data configuration file except the license file. l
Issue 04 (2012-06-29)

If the eNodeB software upgrade fails, the eNodeB will roll back to the source version.

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

Before downloading and activating the data configuration file, the eNodeB does not check the compatibility between the data configuration file and the eNodeB software version. The eNodeB performs the following activities: If the target software version is not the same as the active software version, the eNodeB checks the mapping between the data configuration file and the software after the software is upgraded and the eNodeB is reset. If the software is incompatible with the data configuration file or the download and activation of the data configuration file fail, the eNodeB upgrades to the minimum configuration of the target version. If the target software version is the same as the active software version, the eNodeB checks the mapping between the data configuration file and the software without upgrading the software. If the software is incompatible with the data configuration file or the download and activation of the data configuration file fail, the eNodeB uses the data configuration file of the source version.

The eNodeB does not download or activate the eNodeB software, data configuration file, or license file from the USB flash drive in any of the following cases: The eNodeB software and data configuration file or their saving paths do not exist in the USB flash drive. The target software version is the same as the active software version. In this case, the eNodeB software cannot be downloaded or activated, but the data configuration file and license file can be downloaded and activated. The data configuration file is the same as the active data configuration. In this case, the data configuration file cannot be downloaded or activated, but the software and license file can be downloaded and activated. The license file cannot be downloaded, but the software and data configuration file can be downloaded and activated in any of the following cases: The license file to be downloaded is not the commissioning license. The license file to be downloaded is the commissioning license, but the value of ESN is not ANY. The configurations or the names of the license file to be downloaded and the active license file are the same.

Procedure
Step 1 Check whether the eNodeB is powered on. If it is not powered on, power on the eNodeB. If it is already powered on, go to Step 2.
NOTE

Ensure that the RRU is powered on and the common public radio interface (CPRI) connections are correct before you power on the eNodeB. Check for faults by monitoring the CPRI indicator status on the LBBP after the eNodeB is powered on. For details, see 5.3 Checking the Status of Indicators.

Step 2 When the eNodeB operates properly, insert the USB flash drive into the USB port on the BBU3900 main control board. If an LMPT is used, the USB port is shown in Figure 4-36; if an UMPT is used, the USB port is shown in Figure 4-37.

Step 3 Wait for the eNodeB to automatically upgrade the software and data configuration file. If the download or activation fails, commission the eNodeB by updating the software and data configuration file in the USB flash drive or using a new USB flash drive. If the download or activation still fails, perform the local eNodeB commissioning on the LMT. When the software and data configuration file are being upgraded, the normal status of the indicators on the USB flash drive and main control board is shown in Table 4-31. If the indicators are abnormal, see 5.3 Checking the Status of Indicators.

Follow-up Procedure

CAUTION
The eNodeB software package contains the LMT software. Before downloading the eNodeB software package, pay attention to the following points: l When the LMPT is used: the speed of writing to the flash memory is limited, the LMPT does not support download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive. To reduce the eNodeB deployment duration, some of the files of the LMT software are automatically downloaded from the M2000 to the eNodeB four hours after the eNodeB deployment. If you need to use the LMT complete package immediately after the eNodeB deployment, run the SPL SOFTWARE command on the M2000 after the eNodeB is connected to the M2000. Set Delay Download File Supply Flag to YES(Supply File that Support Delay). The remaining files of LMT software are downloaded to the eNodeB. If you want the LMPT to support download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive, when preparing the files in the USB flash drive, configure the value of WEBLMT from the default configuration files as YES (case-insensitive). When the UMPT is used: the speed of writing to the flash memory increases. The UMPT supports download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive. Therefore, an LMT package is not required after software activation.

4.4.4 Uploading Data Files


Upload data files that are required for procedures of eNodeB commissioning. Data files required for procedures of eNodeB commissioning tasks are NE software versions, cold patches, hot patches, configuration data files, deployment lists, RET antenna software versions and configuration data files, RET antenna templates, and commissioning licenses.

Prerequisites
You have logged in to the M2000 client.

Context
You need to upload data files in the following scenarios: l l Prepare for the commissioning. Upload the required data files to the M2000 server before commissioning as required. The commissioning cannot be started because certain required data files are unavailable. The M2000 automatically checks whether data files required for customized procedures are available. If certain data files are unavailable, the commissioning cannot be started. Upload the required data files that are previously unavailable from the client to the M2000 server. The data files required for eNodeB commissioning need to be saved in specified paths on the M2000 server. For details, see Table 4-32.

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

4.4.5 Creating an eNodeB Commissioning Task


This section describes how to create an eNodeB commissioning task on the M2000 client after commissioning preparations are complete.

Prerequisites
l l l l You have logged in to the M2000 client. eNodeB commissioning preparations are complete. If the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, radio network planning engineers need to plan the area to which the eNodeB belongs. If the eNodeB and the M2000 server are located on different network segments, you need to configure the router nearest to the eNodeB as the DHCP relay. In an insecure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In a secure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the common DHCP server IP address and on the security gateway, you need to set the IP address of the DHCP server to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In situations where the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, the preceding DHCP server IP address of the M2000 refers to the host IP address.

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Configuration > Auto Deployment > NodeB Auto Deployment from the main menu of the Configuration > Auto Deployment > eNodeB Auto Deployment client. The eNodeB Auto Deployment window is displayed. Step 2 Select deployment lists. 1. 2. Click . The Import Deployment List dialog box is displayed.

Step Wait for manual operation

Description After the OM channel is set up, the status of the commissioning task changes to Waiting for manual operation. Manually confirm the completion and proceed with the commissioning after the commissioning environment of the network is ready. The M2000 automatically checks whether the current eNodeB version is the same as the target software version given in the deployment list. If the versions are not the same, the M2000 automatically downloads software from the server to the eNodeB. The M2000 downloads the desired configuration file from the server to the eNodeB based on the target version information. Activate the eNodeB configuration data (takes effect after next reset) and then activate the software (automatic reset). Only the BTS3202E is supported in eNodeB auto deployment. When some eNodeB functions are restricted because the eNodeB uses the default license upon delivery, you need to install a commissioning license. The commissioning license has time restriction. You need to replace the commissioning license with the commercial one as soon as possible after the eNodeB commissioning is complete. The target RET antenna software version is provided by antenna line device (ALD) suppliers and saved on the local PC. l RET antennas managed by eNodeBs on the sites must be commissioned. l If an eNodeB and a NodeB share antennas and the antennas are managed by the NodeB, you do not need to commission the RET antennas. l When antennas are managed by the management system of a third party, you do not need to commission RET antennas.

Obtaining Digital Certificates


Before commissioning an eNodeB, prepare a Huawei root certificate on the CA server and obtain an operator's root certificate. The CA server uses the Huawei root certificate to authenticate the
Issue 04 (2012-06-29) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. 333

eNodeB Commissioning Guide

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

eNodeB before issuing operator's certificates to the eNodeB. The eNodeB uses the operator's root certificate to authenticate the CA server before applying for an operator's device certificate. These digital certificates are required only if the PKI-based authentication is used. If the PSKbased authentication is used, skip this step. PKI is short for public key infrastructure, and PSK is short for Preshared Key.

Context
Before eNodeB delivery, the Huawei root certificate and Huawei device certificate are preconfigured in the main control board of the eNodeB by default. The two certificates are permanently valid. l As a default trusted CA certificate, the Huawei root certificate has been loaded to the certificate storage area of an eNodeB before delivery. This certificate must be loaded to the CA server before eNodeB commissioning. In this way, the CA server can authenticate the eNodeB when the eNodeB applies for an operator's device certificate based on Certificate Management Protocol version 2 (CMPv2). The Huawei device certificate is the initial device certificate of an eNodeB. This certificate identifies the eNodeB when the eNodeB applies for an operator's device certificate based on CMPv2.

Figure 4-45 shows the procedure for obtaining digital certificates. Figure 4-45 Procedure for obtaining digital certificates

is configured according to the user guide of a corresponding equipment type. The following configurations and operations are based on Huawei S6500 series Ethernet switches. If the eNodeB performs IEEE 802.1X-based access control, operations on authentication devices are based on Huawei Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) server.

Prerequisites
l l l Quidway S6500 Series Ethernet Switches Operation Manual is available. You can obtain the document from http://support.huawei.com. HUAWEI AAA Commissioning Guide is available. You can obtain the document from http://support.huawei.com. If IEEE 802.1X-based access control is adopted, the operator must use the authentication access equipment that supports IEEE 802.1X-based access control authentication and the corresponding AAA server that supports Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).

Context
When the SeGW is deployed, you are required to configure data for the SeGW. When IEEE 802.1X-based access control authentication is adopted, you must configure the authentication access equipment and authentication server. Generally, the authentication server refers to the AAA server. Table 4-43 describes the SeGW configuration. Table 4-43 SeGW configuration Item IP address Description Both the public SeGW and the serving SeGW should be configured with the IP address of the interface for the untrusted area on the eNodeB side and IP address of the interface for the trusted area on the evolved packet core (EPC) side. l Public SeGW: The routes to the M2000, eNodeB, and temporary operation and maintenance (O&M) IP address must be configured. l Serving SeGW: The routes to the M2000, S-GW, mobility management entity (MME), eNodeB port IP address, S1 signaling and service IP addresses, and O&M IP address must be configured.

Run sys to enter the system command state. Run dot1x to enable the global IEEE 802.1Xbased access control feature. 2. Enable the IEEE 802.1X feature on the port. For example, to enable the IEEE 802.1X feature for port 3, run the interface GigabitEthernet 1/0/3 command to enter the port view, and run the dot1x command to enable IEEE 802.1X feature. 3. 4. Run dot1x authentication-method { chap | pap | eap } to set the authentication method to EAP. Configure the VLAN and add the route relationship between the transmission network and AAA server. For example, run the vlan 4 command to add a VLAN whose ID is 4. Run the interface vlan 4 command to enter the VLAN view, and run the ip add 10.147.209.38 255.255.255.0 command to add an IP address and subnet mask for the VLAN. Run the ip route-static 10.166.27.48 24 10.147.209.1 command to add the switch-to-AAA server route relationship. 5. Set the parameters of AAA server on the switch. Run the radius scheme accounting command to create a RADIUS solution named radius1, and enter the RADIUS view. Then, run the primary authentication 10.166.27.48 1812 command to set the port No. to 1812 and the IP address to 10.166.27.48 for the primary authentication server. Then, run key authentication itellin to set the authentication key to itellin. For details, see Quidway S6500 Series Ethernet Switches Operation Manual. Step 3 Configure the eNodeB CA certificate for the AAA server. The AAA server may vary according to different operators. The descriptions here take the Huawei AAA server as an example. For details, see HUAWEI AAA Commissioning Guide. 1. 2. Upload the CA certificate of a terminal user to the iscc2/config/secert directory of infoX AAA server. Change the file names of the user certificate and private key in the SCPCFG.INI file. Ensure that the file names are consistent with the file names of the user certificate and private key uploaded in Step 3.1.

4 eNodeB Commissioning Procedures (with the SeGW)

CAUTION
When you save the required files into the USB flash drive, ensure that the locking switch on the USB flash drive is disabled. In other words, the USB flash drive must be writable.

Context
Before downloading files from a USB flash drive, the eNodeB verifies the names and formats of the files. Before downloading the software and data configuration file, the eNodeB automatically checks the working mode of the RRU. Then, the eNodeB downloads and activates the corresponding software and data configuration file based on the working mode of the RRU. You must pay attention to the following points when you download and activate the software, data configuration file, and license file using the USB flash drive: l If the software and data configuration file in the USB flash drive are already activated, they cannot be reactivated for the same eNodeB because of the cyclic redundancy check (CRC) function. The CRC function can prevent the software and data configuration file from being reactivated when the USB flash drive is always inserted into the eNodeB. The CRC function can also prevent the eNodeB from being reset again after eNodeB deployment using the USB flash drive. If the USB flash drive contains only the eNodeB software and data configuration file, the eNodeB downloads and activates the eNodeB software, and then downloads and activates the data configuration file. If the eNodeB software or data configuration file is missing in the USB flash drive, the eNodeB performs the following steps: If the software is missing, the eNodeB downloads and activates the data configuration file and license file except the software. If the data configuration file is missing, the eNodeB upgrades to the minimum configuration of the target version and downloads and activates the license file except the data configuration file. If the license file is missing, the eNodeB downloads and activates the software and data configuration file except the license file. l l If the eNodeB software upgrade fails, the eNodeB will roll back to the source version. Before downloading and activating the data configuration file, the eNodeB does not check the compatibility between the data configuration file and the eNodeB software version. The eNodeB performs the following activities: If the target software version is not the same as the active software version, the eNodeB checks the mapping between the data configuration file and the software after the software is upgraded and the eNodeB is reset. If the software is incompatible with the data configuration file or the download and activation of the data configuration file fail, the eNodeB upgrades to the minimum configuration of the target version. If the target software version is the same as the active software version, the eNodeB checks the mapping between the data configuration file and the software without upgrading the software. If the software is incompatible with the data configuration file or the download and activation of the data configuration file fail, the eNodeB uses the data configuration file of the source version.

Step 3 Wait for the eNodeB to automatically upgrade the software and data configuration file. If the download or activation fails, commission the eNodeB by updating the software and data configuration file in the USB flash drive or using a new USB flash drive. If the download or activation still fails, perform the local eNodeB commissioning on the LMT. When the software and data configuration file are being upgraded, the normal status of the indicators on the USB flash drive and main control board is shown in Table 4-44. If the indicators are abnormal, see 5.3 Checking the Status of Indicators.

WARNING
Do not remove the USB flash drive or reset the eNodeB when downloading or activating the eNodeB software and data configuration file using the USB flash drive. After the download is complete, the eNodeB automatically activates the software and data configuration file. Then, the eNodeB is reset. Step 4 When the download and activation are successful, rectify faults by referring to Checking the Status of Indicators. ----End

Follow-up Procedure

CAUTION
The eNodeB software package contains the LMT software. Before downloading the eNodeB software package, pay attention to the following points: l When the LMPT is used: the speed of writing to the flash memory is limited, the LMPT does not support download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive. To reduce the eNodeB deployment duration, some of the files of the LMT software are automatically downloaded from the M2000 to the eNodeB four hours after the eNodeB deployment. If you need to use the LMT complete package immediately after the eNodeB deployment, run the SPL SOFTWARE command on the M2000 after the eNodeB is connected to the M2000. Set Delay Download File Supply Flag to YES(Supply File that Support Delay). The remaining files of LMT software are downloaded to the eNodeB. If you want the LMPT to support download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive, when preparing the files in the USB flash drive, configure the value of WEBLMT from the default configuration files as YES (case-insensitive). When the UMPT is used: the speed of writing to the flash memory increases. The UMPT supports download of the LMT complete package through the USB flash drive. Therefore, an LMT package is not required after software activation.

4.5.4 Uploading Data Files


Upload data files that are required for procedures of eNodeB commissioning. Data files required for procedures of eNodeB commissioning tasks are NE software versions, cold patches, hot patches, configuration data files, deployment lists, RET antenna software versions and configuration data files, RET antenna templates, and commissioning licenses.

Prerequisites
You have logged in to the M2000 client.

4.5.5 Creating an eNodeB Commissioning Task


This section describes how to create an eNodeB commissioning task on the M2000 client after commissioning preparations are complete.

Prerequisites
l l l l You have logged in to the M2000 client. eNodeB commissioning preparations are complete. If the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, radio network planning engineers need to plan the area to which the eNodeB belongs. If the eNodeB and the M2000 server are located on different network segments, you need to configure the router nearest to the eNodeB as the DHCP relay. In an insecure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In a secure scenario, you need to set the DHCP relay IP address on the router to the common DHCP server IP address and on the security gateway, you need to set the IP address of the DHCP server to the DHCP server IP address of the M2000. In situations where the M2000 is deployed in SLS mode, the preceding DHCP server IP address of the M2000 refers to the host IP address.

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Configuration > Auto Deployment > NodeB Auto Deployment from the main menu of the Configuration > Auto Deployment > eNodeB Auto Deployment client. The eNodeB Auto Deployment window is displayed. Step 2 Select deployment lists. 1. 2. Click . The Import Deployment List dialog box is displayed.

l If the NE was created on the active M2000 server, set the PEERIP parameter for the OMCH to the IP address of the active M2000 server. l If the NE was created on the slave M2000 server, set the PEERIP parameter for the OMCH to the IP address of the slave M2000 server. l Set the Destination IP parameter for the IP router from the NE to the M2000 server to an IP address on the the network segment where the M2000 server is located.
NOTE

Onsite deployment engineers need to perform operations based on the areas that have been planned for eNodeBs by radio network planning engineers. l If eNodeBs belong to one area, import one deployment list to create eNodeBs in batches. l If eNodeBs belong to different areas, import multiple deployment lists by area to create eNodeBs.

4.

In NE Connection Mode, set a mode for connecting the M2000 and NEs. Modes for connecting the M2000 and NEs are as follows: l Common Connection: default connection mode. l SSL Connection: If this mode is selected, you also need to set an authentication mode. Authentication modes are Anonymous Authority and OSS Authentication NE, where Anonymous Authority is the default authentication mode.
NOTE

To enable automatic SSL connection during NE deployment, you need to set the authentication mode for NE in advance on the CME in addition to setting the connection mode between the M2000 and NEs in this step.

Step 3 Click OK. The system starts the import. After the import is complete, the M2000 checks for mandatory parameters with empty values and invalid base station configuration data. In addition, the information indicating whether the import succeeded or failed is displayed on the Operation Information tab page. l If the import is successful, the M2000 automatically creates a commissioning task for each eNodeB. The imported eNodeB deployment lists are displayed on the Deployment List tab page. l If the import fails, the causes of the failure are displayed on the Operation Information tab page. Step 4 (Optional) Modify data in the imported deployment lists as required. This step is mandatory when you need to modify the data in the imported deployment lists.
NOTE

You can check whether the parameters in eNodeB deployment lists can be modified by referring to Parameters for the eNodeB Deployment List.

1.

Select a commissioning task from the commissioning task list, and double-click the cells containing parameter values to change the values. You can change ESNs by double-clicking the cells containing ESNs. Alternatively, you can perform the following operations to change the ESNs: a. b. Click in the ESN value cell.

Procedur e

Step Wait for manual operation

Description After the OM channel is set up, the status of the commissioning task changes to Waiting for manual operation. Manually confirm the completion and proceed with the commissioning after the commissioning environment of the network is ready. The M2000 automatically checks whether the current eNodeB version is the same as the target software version given in the deployment list. If the versions are not the same, the M2000 automatically downloads software from the server to the eNodeB. The M2000 downloads the desired configuration file from the server to the eNodeB based on the target version information. Activate the eNodeB configuration data (takes effect after next reset) and then activate the software (automatic reset). Only the BTS3202E is supported in eNodeB auto deployment. When some eNodeB functions are restricted because the eNodeB uses the default license upon delivery, you need to install a commissioning license. The commissioning license has time restriction. You need to replace the commissioning license with the commercial one as soon as possible after the eNodeB commissioning is complete. The target RET antenna software version is provided by antenna line device (ALD) suppliers and saved on the local PC. l RET antennas managed by eNodeBs on the sites must be commissioned. l If an eNodeB and a NodeB share antennas and the antennas are managed by the NodeB, you do not need to commission the RET antennas. l When antennas are managed by the management system of a third party, you do not need to commission RET antennas.

Perform NHC Wait for confirmation

You can perform health check to learn the eNodeB operating status. After service verification is complete, the commissioning task is in the Waiting for Confirmation state. You need to manually confirm that the commissioning is complete.

NOTE

The system checks whether all configured RF modules are usable before starting project quality check. l If all configured RF modules are usable, the system issues project quality check commands to proceed with subsequent operations. l If only some configured RF modules are usable, the system sets a timer (2.5 minutes in length and a maximum of 5 times) to wait until all RF modules are usable. After all RF modules are usable, the system issues project quality check commands to proceed with subsequent operations.

4.5.8 Obtaining an Operator's Device Certificate Manually (with PKI)


If the PKI-based authentication is used in differentiated encryption mode, an Internet protocol security (IPSec) tunnel must be set up between the eNodeB and the security gateway (SeGW) to ensure that cells are working properly. Before the tunnel setup, digital certificates are required for the authentication between the eNodeB and the SeGW. Therefore, after the eNodeB software and data configuration files are activated, and the eNodeB is connected to the M2000, you must manually obtain an operator's device certificate from the M2000. This section describes how to manually obtain an operator's device certificate.

This section describes how to configure the default configuration file.

Procedure
Step 1 Enter the board software package name. In the PRECONFIG of the default configuration file, enter the board software package name based on the format ALL=XXXX.
NOTE

. l XXXX indicates the board software package name. l Querying the board software package name: The board software package name corresponding to a board type can be queried by checking the notes in the default configuration file. The notes in the default configuration file are classified based on the format ;AAAA:BBBB. BBBB indicates the board type. AAAA indicates the corresponding board software package name. For example, in the note ;LRRUFDD:LRFU,RRU3808,RRU3201/RRU3203, the board software package name of RRU3201 is LRRUFDD. l If multiple board software packages are downloaded, use the character "|" to separate the names. For example, ALL=1800|LRRUFDD..

Step 2 Enter the LMT complete package downloading information in WEBLMT.


NOTE

The value of WEBLMT can only be YES or NO (case-insensitive). If the value is YES, the LMPT supports the download of the LMT complete package by using a USB flash drive. If the value isNO, the LMPT does not support the download of the LMT complete package by using a USB flash drive.

About This Chapter

FAQ

This chapter describes some common problems and solutions during commissioning. 6.1 Failing to Identify the USB Flash Drive For eNodeB commissioning in hybrid mode using a Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive locally and the M2000 remotely, eNodeB fails to identify the USB flash drive if the USB indicator is off after the eNodeB is powered on and the USB flash drive is inserted. 6.2 Failing to Read Files in the USB Flash Drive After the eNodeB is powered on for about 5 minutes, observe the RUN indicator on the LTE main processing and transmission unit (LMPT) and Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive indicator. If the RUN indicator does not blink (on for 0.125s and off for 0.125s) and the USB flash drive indicator is off, the eNodeB fails to read files in the USB flash drive. 6.3 Failing to Activate the Software After the eNodeB deployment is complete, log in to the eNodeB on the Web local maintenance terminal (LMT). Then run the MML command LST SOFTWARE to check the eNodeB version information. If the backup software version is the target version, the eNodeB succeeds in downloading the software but fails to activate the software. 6.4 Failing to Download the Software Based on the Default Configuration File After the eNodeB is deployed using a USB flash drive, the eNodeB does not download the board software based on the board information configured in the default configuration file. For example, based on the default configuration file, the Web LMT complete package should have been downloaded. However, if you find a minimum LMT package was downloaded after logging in to the eNodeB on the Web LMT, the eNodeB failed to download the software based on the default configuration file.

Step 1 Check whether the eNodeB is working properly by observing the eNodeB indicator. For details, see 5.3 Checking the Status of Indicators. Step 2 Ensure that the USB flash drive is correctly inserted into the USB port on the LTE main processing and transmission unit (LMPT). If an LMPT is used, the USB port is shown in Figure 6-1. If a UMPT is used, the USB port is shown in Figure 6-2. Figure 6-1 USB port on the LMPT

Step 3 Remove the USB flash drive and then power off the eNodeB. After about 1 minute, power on the eNodeB and insert the USB flash drive into the USB port on the LMPT. ----End

6.2 Failing to Read Files in the USB Flash Drive


After the eNodeB is powered on for about 5 minutes, observe the RUN indicator on the LTE main processing and transmission unit (LMPT) and Universal Serial Bus (USB) flash drive indicator. If the RUN indicator does not blink (on for 0.125s and off for 0.125s) and the USB flash drive indicator is off, the eNodeB fails to read files in the USB flash drive.

Procedure
Step 1 Ensure that the USB flash drive meets requirements in Table 6-1. Table 6-1 Tools required for the local commissioning using the USB flash drive Tool USB flash drive Description l The USB flash drive is equipped with an indicator that indicates the data transmission status. l Capacity 256 MB l Model: The USB flash drive must be provided by Huawei. l The USB flash drive must not provide any additional functions, such as encryption, virus scanning, and bootstrapping. In addition, it cannot be an MP3 player, MP4 player, or smart phone. l The USB flash drive used for commissioning cannot be used for other purposes. In addition, irrelevant files, especially those with Chinese file names, cannot be saved in the USB flash drive.

Step 2 Ensure that the version software package and data configuration files are named correctly and saved in correct paths. l In scenarios without the security gateway (SeGW), see Preparing a USB Flash Drive for Local Commissioning. l In scenarios with the SeGW, see Preparing a USB Flash Drive for Local Commissioning. Step 3 Remove the USB flash drive and then power off the eNodeB. After about 1 minute, power on the eNodeB and insert the USB flash drive into the USB port on the LMPT. ----End

6.3 Failing to Activate the Software


After the eNodeB deployment is complete, log in to the eNodeB on the Web local maintenance terminal (LMT). Then run the MML command LST SOFTWARE to check the eNodeB version information. If the backup software version is the target version, the eNodeB succeeds in downloading the software but fails to activate the software.

Procedure
Step 1 Local commissioning using a USB flash drive in combination with remote commissioning on the M2000 1. Ensure that the version software package and data configuration files are named correctly and saved in correct paths. l In scenarios without the security gateway (SeGW), see Preparing a USB Flash Drive for Local Commissioning. l In scenarios with the SeGW, see Preparing a USB Flash Drive for Local Commissioning. 2. Remove the USB flash drive and then power off the eNodeB. After about 1 minute, power on the eNodeB and insert the USB flash drive into the USB port on the LMPT. Redeploy the eNodeB.

Step 2 Remote eNodeB commissioning on the M2000 Ensure that the version in the eNodeB deployment list is consistent with the target version. If it is inconsistent with the target version, change the eNodeB deployment list according to the target version and then redeploy the eNodeB. ----End

6.4 Failing to Download the Software Based on the Default Configuration File
After the eNodeB is deployed using a USB flash drive, the eNodeB does not download the board software based on the board information configured in the default configuration file. For example, based on the default configuration file, the Web LMT complete package should have been downloaded. However, if you find a minimum LMT package was downloaded after logging in to the eNodeB on the Web LMT, the eNodeB failed to download the software based on the default configuration file.

Procedure
Step 1 Check the information in and saving path of the default configuration file. If they are incorrect, modify the default configuration file. l In scenarios without the security gateway (SeGW), see Preparing a USB Flash Drive for Local Commissioning. l In scenarios with the SeGW, see Preparing a USB Flash Drive for Local Commissioning. Step 2 Check whether the default configuration file is integrity protected. If it is not integrity protected, see 5.5 Encrypting Files in the USB Flash Drive. Step 3 Delete the board information not to be downloaded from the default configuration file. Step 4 Check the software version in the USB flash drive and ensure the target version is not the same as the active version.
NOTE

If the target version is the same as the active version, the eNodeB does not read the default configuration file in the USB flash drive, which leads to the failure of downloading.
