Signal Flow of the Macro NodeB

About This Chapter
Signal flow of the macro NodeB consists of signal flow of downlink services, signal flow of uplink services, and signal flow of signaling processing. 7.1 Signal Flow of Downlink Services of the Macro NodeB The signal flow of downlink services is the user plane data from the RNC to the UE through the macro NodeB. The MAFU, MTRU, HBBI, HDLP, and NUTI work together to process the signals of the downlink services carried on the macro NodeB. Based on whether the HDLP is configured, the signal flow of the downlink services can be categorized as follows: 7.2 Signal Flow of Uplink Services of the Macro NodeB The signal flow of uplink services refers to the user plane data sent from the UE through the macro NodeB to the RNC. The MAFU, MTRU, HBBI, HDLP, and NUTI work together to process the signals of the uplink services carried on the macro NodeB. Based on whether the HULP is configured, the signal flow of the uplink services can be categorized as follows: 7.3 Signal Flow of Signaling Processing of the Macro NodeB The signaling of the macro NodeB refers to the signaling over the Iub interface. Working together with other boards, the NMPT controls the signaling processing.

Then IF signals are generated. HDLP. Frame Protocol (FP) processing. mapping from transport channels to physical channels. The HDLP and the downlink baseband processing part of HBBI perform the following functions: l 2. RF signals are generated after up-conversion and are transmitted to the MAFU after filtering and amplification. HBBI.2 Signal Flow of Uplink Services of the Macro NodeB The signal flow of uplink services refers to the user plane data sent from the UE through the macro NodeB to the RNC. procedures for signal flow of downlink services are as follows: 1. and Digital-Analog Conversion (DAC). coding.BTS3812E 7 Signal Flow of the Macro NodeB Figure 7-2 Signal flow of downlink services when the HDLP is configured Description of Signal Flow of Downlink Services No matter the HDLP is configured or not. 7. The NodeB Iub interface board receives signals from the RNC. MTRU. insertion filtering. The MAFU: The duplexer in the MAFU filters the signals and sends them to antenna on the NodeB through feeders. and then transmits the service signals to the HDLP and the downlink baseband processing part of the HBBI.

Figure 7-4 shows the signal flow of uplink services in this situation. Based on whether the HULP is configured. Figure 7-3 shows the signal flow of uplink services in this situation.

Then the multiplexed signals are transferred to the HBBI. (3) After the Digital Down Conversion (DDC). The signals are sent to the MTRU after filtered by the duplexer and amplified by the LNA. the procedure for the signal flow of uplink services is as follows: 1. the IF signals are converted into digital signals. The signals of the other channel are processed over the dedicated RX channel. 3. including multi-path searching. The procedure for digital baseband processing is as follows: (1) The HULP or the HBBI performs access channel demodulation and dedicated channel demodulation. The signals of one channel are processed over the common TX/RX channel. extraction filtering.

The MAFU: The MAFU processes UL signals of two channels simultaneously. Note that the TMA can be optionally used to compensate for feeder loss and to enhance the NodeB receive sensitivity. and Digital Automatic Gain Control (DAGC) processing.
