Fault Clearance Principle


The high system functionality of the Siemens Base Station System is achieved by
means of system-integrated routine tests. These routine tests continually check the correct functioning of the base station subsystems including the BTSEs.
The fault clearance procedures in this manual are based on these routine tests. In most
cases, the results of these routine tests are sufficient to localize the fault and clear it immediately at the BTSE.
The modular design of the BTSE allows you to clear a large percentage of faults in the
system by replacing a defective module.
Sometimes, however, it may happen that faults do not result from defective modules,
but from interface problems in general (for example interrupted cables). In this case,
special trouble shooting procedures for interfaces are provided.
This maintenance concept guarantees a simple and fast fault clearance and leads to
high operational efficiency.

Fault Clearance Guidelines


(The numbering refers to the diagram displayed in Fig. 1.3.)
1. The system integrated routine test detects a fault.
2. A fault message is displayed at the Radio Commander.
3. The fault and test management at the Operation and Maintenance Center
(OMC) must verify whether a local fault clearance at the BTSE is required (see Radio Commander documentation).
For the local fault clearance at the BTSE:
Make sure that all spare parts that might be required to clear the fault are available
at the site. Note that sometimes more than one module may be suspected of being
defective. This is particularly important if the failure is located in the TX/RX path
(see PROC: TX/RX Path (e.g., VSWR)).
For general module replacement instructions also see 1.5 "Module Replacement
Instructions".

4. Interpret the fault message and go to the fault clearance procedure of the suspected
module or interface in chapter 3 "Fault Clearance Procedures for Modules and Interfaces" (module/interface names as well as LMT terms (Managed Objects) are listed
in alphabetical order if they appear in the fault message).
Localize the fault and clear it according to the corresponding procedure.
5. As described in the corresponding procedure, verify whether the fault clearance was
successful:
Was the outcome of the hardware test pass?
Are there any relevant active alarms?
Do the LEDs signal normal operation?
6. If the fault should still exist and the replaced module was not the cause of the fault,
check whether there is another probable cause.
7. If there is another probable cause, reinsert the recently replaced original module and
go to the corresponding fault clearance procedure for the next suspected module or
interface.
8. It should be possible to clear most faults that may occur in the BTSE by following
the fault clearance procedures described in this manual. However, if the fault should
still exist after considering all probable causes, contact the Technical Assistance
Center (TAC). Here you will obtain help from specially trained troubleshooting experts.
9. End of fault clearance. Pack and tag all faulty modules for transport to a repair depot.
Write a fault report in which the following information is given in detail:

ESD Precautions

Fig. 1.4

ESD Symbol

Many system modules are equipped with electrostatically sensitive components


(marked by an ESD symbol). Therefore, ESD precautions must be taken when removing
and inserting modules.
During module replacement, personnel must wear a conductive wrist strap to discharge
electrostatic charging. Before modules, lines or components are touched, this wrist strap
must be connected to the ground potential of the rack by means of a flexible lead integrating a 1 M resistor. Note that the conducting parts of the split pin or the clamp
should not be touched when inserting/connecting (so as to avoid bypassing the 1 M
resistor).

1.5.2

Avoiding the Loss of Calls


The following procedure is only relevant if the BTSE is in phase 3. In phase 1 or 2, the
BTSE cannot establish calls.
If you lock or replace modules in the TX/RX path of the BTSE, calls may be lost. To avoid
the loss of calls, perform the following procedure before you lock or replace a module in
the TX/RX path.
1. Find out the corresponding TRX:
To find out which TRX is related to the module, perform the following LMT command:
BSS
BE Btsep Br<no>:<NE id>
BSS-EQUIPMENT
BTSEP
BTSEP<no>
RACK
RACK<no>
<Module>
<Module><no>
GET <Module>
NAME=RACK:<no>/<Module>:<no>
REQATTL=RELFUNKOBJ
Get <Module>:Name=BTSE:<no>/<Module>:<no>,REQATTL=RELFUNCOBJ
In the system response, the corresponding TRX is listed as related Functional Object: relatedFuncObjects FMO = BTS:<no>/TRX:<no>.

MMN:BTSE
BS-240 / 240 II / 240XL / 240XL II

2. Check the state of the corresponding TRX (only possible in phase 3):
To check the state of the corresponding TRX, perform the following LMT command:
BSS
BE Btsep Br<no>:<NE id>
BSS-FUNCTIONAL
BTSM
BTSM<no>
BTS
TRX
TRX<no>
GET <TRX>
NAME=BTS:<no>/TRX:<no>
REQATTL=OST/AST
Get TRX:Name=BTS:<no>/TRX:<no>,REQATTL=<AST>&<OST>
The states of the TRX are listed in the system response.
3. If the states of the TRX are either administrativeState = Unlocked / operationalState = Disabled or administrativeState = Locked / operationalState = Enabled,
the module is not used for calls anymore. You can start with your maintenance task.
4. If the administrativeState = Shutting Down, the shutdown is in progress. Wait a
few minutes and check the state of the TRX again. As soon as the TRX is locked,
you can start with your maintenance task.
5. If the TRX is unlocked/enabled, call the OMC to have the TRX shut down. Wait a
few minutes and check the state of the TRX again. As soon as the TRX is locked,
you can start with your maintenance task.
For an overview of the modules in the TX/RX path, refer to PROC: TX/RX Path (e.g.,
VSWR).
For a description of the state/status attributes, refer to 5.2 "State/Status Attributes of
BTSE Managed Objects".

Removing and Inserting Modules


There are two variants for fastening modules in the subracks.
Some modules, e.g. the COBA and COSA, are equipped with a lever mechanism at their
front panel. For removing or inserting these modules, they can be fastened / unfastened
by swivelling the levers at the top and bottom edges of the module.
Other modules, e.g. the CU, DIAMCO, DUAMCO / FDUAMCO, FICOM, AC/DC, are fastened with TORX-headed knurled screws. Replacement of these modules requires special tools.

Module Fastening Variants

The TMA (Tower Mounted Amplifier) must be replaced complete with its housing (to be
mounted on / unmounted from the mast).
The semi-rigid / flexi cables on the CU, DIAMCO, DUAMCO, FDUAMCO, COAMCO and
FICOM must be fastened / unfastened with a torque spanner (2 sizes).

18

It must be ensured that all cables are fastened correctly. Make sure that the connectors are aligned straight on the screw threads. Then tighten the cable connector coupling nuts manually. The position and alignment is correct if the coupling nuts can be
turned easily.
Finally, fasten the cables by tightening their coupling nuts with a torque wrench.
It must be ensured that the modules are only replaced by modules with the same or a
compatible HW and SW functional status!
Modules with switches or jumpers must be compared with the removed module for
safety reasons.
The modules should be removed and inserted as fast as possible, in order to prevent
reading in false module addresses from the CAN BUS.

Handling Modules with Code Keys


To prevent the installation of the modules at incorrect mounting positions, code keys are
used on all relevant plug-in modules.

Code Keys
Fig. 1.6

Location of the Plug-in Module Code Keys

In order to avoid module and backplane connector damage when modules are removed
from / inserted into a base station frame, please observe the following:
In general, after having removed a module from a base station frame, please make sure
that the code keys of the module (at the rear connector terminals) are mechanically intact, and that a code key plug has not been torn out from its socket and is now jammed
in the backplane.
When replacing a module, please make sure
that the code keys of the new module have the same setting as those of the old one
(see figure below),

that all code keys (also those of the old module) are mechanically intact, and

that a code key plug has not been torn out from its socket and is now jammed in the
backplane.

When inserting a module, do not use excessive pressure.

Quick Module Replacement


In general, there are 2 replacement procedures:

the standard replacement procedure

and

the facilitated, quick replacement procedure (only applicable for some particular
modules).

For the standard replacement procedure, an LMT is required. The modules are locked
and, after their replacement, tested and unlocked via an LMT.
For the quick replacement procedure, an LMT is not required. The module can be replaced directly and is put into service automatically after a successful replacement (Autorecovery).
Precondition for the quick replacement procedure: the attribute Autorecovery (EAUTOREC) is enabled.
To check whether this attribute is enabled, perform the LMT command:
BSS
BE Btsep Br<no>:<NE id>
BSS-EQUIPMENT
BTSEP
BTSEP<no>
GET BTSEP NOSWL
REQATTL
EAUTOREC
Get BTSEP NOSWL:NAME=BTSEP:<no>,REQATTL=EAUTOREC
To set this attribute, refer to ITMN:BTSE BS-240 / 240 II / 240XL / 240XL II, chapter
Setting Attributes for the BTSE.

Special Behaviour of Modules that are connected by the CAN bus:


If Autorecovery is enabled and such a module is mistakenly locked before it is exchanged, then this module will recover automatically after it is unlocked.
This has no further consequences for the system, but is an unspecified behaviour.
Quick Replacement Procedure and semi-rigid/flexi Cabling
Modules with semi-rigid/flexi cabling require special handling!
It is important that all semi-rigid/flexi cables are connected before the module is fully inserted. Otherwise, the module is not put into service. The reason for this is that the automatic recovery process starts as soon as the module comes into contact with the
backplane connectors. Semi-rigid/flexi cables that are not connected during this process cause errors which will prevent the autorecovery of the module.

20

In order to be able to connect the semi-rigid/flexi cables, insert the prepared module
as far as necessary. It is recommended to leave about 2 cm (.75) distance between
module and backplane connectors.
Connect all semi-rigid/flexi cables.
Fully insert the module.

Abis

In some cases, Abis alarms originate from loose or damaged PCM cables on the BTSE
Abis interface (OVPT) and in the corresponding distribution frame in the BSC direction.
Therefore, the relevant cables must be checked first, according to the following procedure.
Typical Abis alarms concerning cable problems may be indicated by the alarm message
- BPORT - Loss of signal

BPORT is the logical object that is related to the Abis interface (OVPT).
The Abis lines are also referred to as PCM lines.

Open the BTSE door


To verify an Abis alarm, you have to open the BTSE door and check the LEDs of
the COBA/COSA.

Check the LEDs on the COBA/COSA


You can recognize an Abis alarm by the red LEDs for Abis 1 to Abis 8 alarm at
the COBA/COSA.
The Abis LEDs indicate the respective Managed Object BPORT, e.g.,:

Abis 1 corresponds to the Managed Object BPORT 0,


Abis 2 corresponds to the Managed Object BPORT 1, etc.

AC/DC
The managed object ACDCP is related to the DCBCTRL, not to the AC/DC module itself
and therefore exists only once.
In BS-240 II / 240XL II the AC/DC system is not configured as managed object. To make
AC/DC alarms visible, Environmental Alarms have to be configured (see ITMN:BTSE
BS-240 / 240 II / 240XL / 240XL II, Creating the Alarm Configuration (ENVABTSE)).
If the AC/DC modules are not equipped in redundant configuration, the system uses the
backup battery for power supply and may be in Emergency Configuration.
In redundant configuration only one AC/DC module can be replaced at the same time
without any interruption.
The fault message indicates the address of the corresponding DCBCTRL.

Note that the failure cause may be located in any module of the power sypply system:
- the module(s) addressed in the error message
- AC/DC
- AC Panel or ADP
- DCBCTRL
- Battery
It is recommended to start with the replacement of the module which is addressed in
the fault message. Afterwards - if the error is still there - to take the other modules in
the power supply system into consideration.
Examples for Alarms in the Power Supply System
Error ID 53266 mains breakdown
Error ID 53267 battery breakdown
Error ID 53268 -48 V out of tolerance

Find the Suspected Module


The additional Information of the fault message contains the number of the
faulty rectifier module. In this case, it should not be necessary to measure all
rectifier modules.
Check the output supply current for all AC/DC modules of the rack. This can
be done by measuring the indication voltage at the test connector, see
HW:BTSE Modules, AC/DC for the appropriate module description. The relationship between the indication voltage and the output current is 10 mV/A for
BS-240 / 240XL and 100 mV/A for BS-240 II / 240XL II.
The module(s) without output current must be investigated further.

COBA Without CORE Redundancy

A mix of module types COBA2P8 / COSA6P16 with module types COBA4P12 /


COSA4P12 in one rack is not allowed - even in the status power off.

These modules are equipped with electrostatically sensitive components and are
susceptible to damage by electrostatic discharge. Follow ESD precautions when removing and inserting modules. Refer to 1.5.1 "ESD Precautions".

When the COBA4P12 is inserted, a module COSA4P12 or COREXT must also be


installed. Check if one of these modules is installed and insert if necessary.

This procedure describes the replacement of a COBA4P12 with a COBA4P12 or the


replacement of a COBA2P8 with a COBA2P8 without CORE redundancy.
For the replacement of a COBA2P8 with a COBA4P12 or COBA with redundancy,
please see:
3.9 "COBA With CORE Redundancy"

Information

After the insertion of the new COBA, the system will automatically log off
and request to log on again. After the logon, the BTSE is then in phase 1.

After the COBA replacement, the BTSE specific data base for this COBA is
lost and it is necessary to download and activate the SW again.

After the COBA replacement, the BTSE specific data base will be lost. This
makes it necessary to reconfigure the BTSE. Usually, a backup copy of the
configuration is stored with the site specific documentation. If there is no
backup, you must reconfigure the BTSE by hand.

14

The BTSE is now in phase 3. The BSC will start the alignment with the
BTSE.

It is necessary to rebuild the inventory data that was stored on the removed
COBA, using a backup IDF file or by hand.

After the COBA replacement, the BTSE specific data base for this COBA is
lost and it is necessary to reconfigure the BTSE. Therefore, backup files
that are generated from the redundant COBA can be used.

After the COBA replacement, the Remote Inventory Data are lost and must
be rebuilt with a backup IDF file. The Remote Inventory Data have to be
loaded to the LMT PC from the BTSE.

The replaced COBA must be active. The formerly redundant (active) COBA
is now inactive.

With the switch of the COBA status, the BTS site manager will automatically
be disconnected from the BSC and request to log on again. After the logon,
the BTSE is then in phase 1.

11

After the COBA replacement, the BTSE specific data base for this COBA is
lost and it is necessary to download and activate the SW again. It is necessary to log on again afterwards. The BTSE is then in phase 2.

14

The BTSE is now in phase 3. The BSC will start the alignment with the
BTSE.

18

It is necessary to rebuild the inventory data that was stored on the removed
COBA, using a backup IDF file or by hand.

Information

After the insertion of the new COBA, the system will automatically log off and
request to log on again. The BTSE is then in phase 1.

After the COBA replacement, the BTSE specific data base for this COBA is
lost and it is necessary to download and activate the SW again.

After the COBA replacement, the BTSE specific data base will be lost. This
makes it necessary to reconfigure the BTSE. Usually, a backup copy of the
configuration is stored with the site specific documentation. If there is no backup, the BTSE must be reconfigured by hand.

11

In the script file Script3p.lmt, the command Create BPORT has to be modified if the requested value of the LIMP attribute is different to the default
value.

14

The BTSE is now in phase 3. The BSC will start the alignment with the BTSE.

Information

After the COBA replacement, the BTSE specific data base is lost and it is necessary to reconfigure the BTSE. Therefore, backup files that are generated
from the redundant COBA can be used.

After the COBA replacement, the Remote Inventory Data are lost and must be
rebuilt with a backup IFD file. The Remote Inventory Data have to be loaded
to the LMT PC from the BTSE.

If no COSA boards exist, COREXT boards need to be inserted.

With the switch off of the COBA modules, the BTS site manager will automatically be disconnected from the BSC and request to log on again. The BTSE is
then in phase 1.

After the COBA replacement, the BTSE specific data base for this COBA is
lost and it is necessary to download and activate the SW again. It is necessary to log on afterwards. The BTSE is then in phase 2.

10

In the script file Script3p.lmt, the command Create BPORT has to be modified if the requested value of the LIMP attribute is different to the default

14

Only the nob_RIU-part has to be exported for the download to the BTSE.

17

The BTSE is now in phase 3. The BSC will start the alignment with the BTSE.

21

After the activation of the BTSM, the BTSE will automatically request to switch
to log on. The BTSE is then in phase 2.

23

The Remote Inventory Data that are stored in the BTSE (IDT file) must be uploaded to the LMT PC in order to create an up-to-date IDF file for backup.

This step is only necessary if the required lineImpedance setting is
lmp75Ohm and does therefore not correspond with the default values. The
operator is responsible for the correct setting of the lineImpedance attribute.

The default values are:


lmp100or120Ohm for COBA4P12
AccDIP for COBA2P8
When replacing the COBA2P8 with a COBA4P12, the default value is automatically changed from AccDIP to lmp100or120 Ohm.
If the value lmp75Ohm is required for the COBA4P12, the script file
Script3p.lmt must be changed:

To edit the script file:


1. Open the file Script3p.lmt with a text editor like Notepad.
The script files were saved in step 2 to the LMT PC, e.g.
C:\...\LMT<version>\BKBTS\BtsPlus.
2. Modify the command Create BPORT. The attribute LIMP has to be set to
Imp75Ohm.

COSA

In order not to loose ongoing calls, it is necessary to perform a SHUTDOWN command


at the Operation & Maintenance Center (OMC):
- on the TRXs related to the CUs 8..23
- on the SUBTSLB objects (subpool(s)) configured on the Abis lines 2..7
Therefore, it is recommended to call the OMC to perform this procedure. Otherwise, all
involved traffic will be lost.
Module COSA may be removed while the power is on. Then the module must be
locked before its replacement, otherwise a reset of the core will happen.
In combination with a COBA4P12: Either a COSA4P12 or a COREXT must be installed.
A mix of module types COBA2P8 / COSA6P16 with module types COBA4P12 /
COSA4P12 in one rack is not allowed - even in the status power off.

Module CU may be removed while the power is on.


The module CU may also be an EDGE CU (ECU) or a GMSK CU (GCU).
It is possible to use CUs, ECUs, GCUs or FlexCUs, but please note the following:
Since the GSM 1800 GCU has more RF output power than the GSM 1800 CU, mixed
cell configurations might result in slight changes of some performance counters and
CU dependent coverage. It is not recommended to use the antenna hopping mode in
this configuration.
For more information on the RF output power of the various CU types, please refer to

Quick Module Replacement

ESD precautions must be taken when pulling and inserting a module. Refer
to 1.5.1 "ESD Precautions".
1. Disconnect all semi-rigid/flexi cables.
Attention: Mark the normal- and the diversity- path!
2. Take out the affected module.
3. Select a module with a functional HW / SW state compatible to that of the
module which is being replaced
4. Partly insert the prepared module. Make sure that it does not yet come into
contact with the back plane connectors by leaving a distance of about 2 cm
(.75), between the module and the back plane.
5. Connect all semi-rigid/flexi cables (use a torque spanner).

If there was contact beteen the module and the back plane connectors before all semi-rigid/flexi cables were connected, pull the module again about
2 cm (.75) out of the rack until it is no longer connected to the back plane.
6. Insert the prepared module completely.

Was the module replacement successful?


All LEDs must signal normal operation (no red LEDs must be on).
Call OMC to make sure that the BTSE has gone back to normal operation.

DILNA

This MO of the DIAMCO supplies the RX path. There are two managed
objects of this type per module and they have to be handled separately

DIDCTMA

There are two managed objects each of this type per module and they
have to be handled separately. The DIDCTMA offers the DC power
supply for the TMA. It has to be created only if the TMA is installed.
The managed object DILNA must be locked before replacement!
DIDCTMA must be locked, only if an TMA is installed!
Note: The DIAMCO- Module contains two DIAMCOs (i.e., together
four MOs), which could belong to two different cells!
At the replacement of the DIAMCO a functioning cell could break down
short-term!

FlexCU
The FlexCU is a complete two-carrier unit with standard CU footprint. The HMO
FCUMAIN (Flexible Carrier Unit MAIN Part) represents the part of the Flexible Carrier
Unit which is common to both carriers in a FlexCU.
This procedure covers the fault messages FCUMAIN and FCUTR.
The module CU may be removed while power is on.
Warning
These modules are equipped with electrostatically sensitive components and are
susceptible to damage by electrostatic discharge. Follow ESD precautions when removing and inserting modules. Refer to Chapter 1.5 "Module Replacement Instructions".

Important
Avoid the loss of calls.
If you lock or remove modules in the TX/RX path of the BTSE, calls may be lost.
To avoid the loss of calls, please follow the instructions in Chapter 1.5.2 "Avoiding the
Loss of Calls".

Important
Avoid reduced quality.
In case of locking a CU in a cell with enabled Antenna Hopping, the concerned CU is
blocked at once but Antenna Hopping is blocked only after 9.6 s. During this time the
quality is reduced.
To avoid this, switch off Antenna Hopping before locking the CU.

It is possible to use GCU / ECU / FlexCU in mixed configurations, but note the following: Since the GSM 1800 GCU has more RF output power than the GSM 1800 CU,
mixed cell configurations might result in slight changes of some performance counters
and CU dependent coverage. It is not recommended to use the antenna hopping mode
in this configuration.

Quick Module Replacement

ESD precautions must be taken when pulling and inserting a module. Refer
to 1.5.1 "ESD Precautions".
1. Disconnect all semi-rigid/flexi cables. Attention: Mark all normal- and all
diversity- paths!
2. Take out the affected module.
3. Select a module with a functional HW / SW state compatible to that of the
module which is being replaced
4. Partly insert the prepared module. Make sure that it does not yet come into
contact with the back plane connectors by leaving a distance of about 2 cm
(.75) , between module and back plane.
5. Connect all semi-rigid/flexi cables (use a torque spanner)

If there was contact between the module and the back plane connectors
before all semi-rigid/flexi cables were connected, pull the module about 2 cm
(.75) out of the rack again until it is no longer connected to the back plane.
6. Insert the prepared module completely.

Was the module replacement successful?


All LEDs must signal normal operation (no red LEDs may be on).
Call OMC to make sure that the BTSE has gone back to normal operation.

Quick Module Replacement

All FICOM modules which are used for one cell must have the same variant.
ESD precautions must be taken when pulling and inserting a module. Refer
to 1.5.1 "ESD Precautions".
1. Disconnect all semi-rigid/flexi and antenna cables and all expansion cables
(between the different modules) from the suspected module. In certain cases
a coupler for power monitoring may be used. Be careful not to mix up the connections for the input and the monitoring output when reconnecting the cables!
2. Pull the affected module.
3. Select a module with a functional HW / SW state compatible to that of the
module which is being replaced.
4. Partly insert the prepared module. Make sure that it does not yet come into
contact with the back plane connectors by leaving a distance of about 2 cm
(.75), between module and backplane.
5. Connect all semi-rigid/flexi and antenna cables and all expansion cables (between the different modules) (use a torque spanner).

If there was contact between the module and the backplane connectors
before all semi-rigid/flexi and antenna cables were connected, pull the module about 2 cm (.75) out of the rack again until it is no longer connected to
the backplane.
6. Insert the prepared module completely.
7. The alarm LEDs must not be on after module insertion! If the LED is on,
check the antenna connection.
8. Loosen the fastening screws on the corresponding CU.
9. Pull out the corresponding CU about 2 cm (.75), without disconnecting the
semi-rigid/flexi cables.
10. Insert the corresponding CU completely.

Was the module replacement successful?


All LEDs must signal normal operation (no red LEDs may be on).
Call OMC to make sure that the BTSE has gone back to normal operation.

OVPT
This fault clearance procedure also applies to the optional module ABISCON.

Module OVPT may be removed while power is on.

Module OVPT is the interface module between the BSC and the BTSE (for the outdoor
versions in common with WAVEs,NTs or CSUs). Therefore, if a failure of the Abis link
is reported, the OVPT must be considered.

When the OVPT fails, the PCM-line is also broken for all subsequent BTSE in the event
of a multidrop configuration.

Remote Inventory Data Restoration

It is necessary to rebuild the inventory data that was stored on the removed COBA using a backup IDF file. Usually, a backup of the IDF is stored on site with the site specific information. If there is no backup file, the data can be extracted from the BSC IDF file
via TAC, or can be restored manually.
Flow Chart and Additional Information:
The following flow chart gives an overview of the fault clearance procedure. Additional
information to the steps is included behind the flow chart, followed by the steps in detail.

TX/RX Path (e.g., VSWR)

In most cases, alarms in the TX/RX path originate from loose or damaged cables.
Therefore, the relevant cables must be checked first, according to the following procedure.
If the alarm cannot be cleared in this way, the suspected modules must be replaced.
Note that the failure cause may be located in any module of the TX/RX path:
- the module(s) addressed in the error message
- combining equipment
- antenna.
It is recommended to start with the replacement of the module which is addressed in
the fault message. Afterwards - if the error is still there - to take the other modules in
the TX/RX path into consideration.

To make sure that no calls are lost, check whether the corresponding TRX is shut
down before cables/modules are disconnected. If the TRX is still in use, call the OMC
to have it shut down. For more information, refer to 1.5.2 "Avoiding the Loss of Calls".
Examples for Alarms in the TX/RX Path
RF power reflected into power stage
Cell 0,1,2: Antenna System TX
FICOM_VSWRP: VSWR alarm Low or High
DUAMCO (FDUAMCO, COAMCO): RX alarm Low or High
DIAMCO: RX alarm Low or High
TMA: RX alarm Low or High

No specific alarm exists for a defective COAMCO module. Check the LEDs POWER /
ALARM at the COAMCO module. Red LED lights signal a defective COAMCO module.

Cable connections fastened correctly?


Are the TX cable connections of the suspected module fastened correctly?

TX/RX Paths of Some Configuration Examples


This chapter shows diagrams of the TX/RX paths of 3 configuration examples. For each
configuration a table is given which lists some details on possible failures, their possible
effects and how they can be detected.

This chapter provides an overview, but does not claim to provide complete lists of possible errors, their possible effects and detection systems.
The actual sets of error messages depend on customer specific conditions such as the
individual configuration of the base station system, customer defined thresholds and
further details that cannot be taken into account here.
The occurrence frequency of the errors is not considered and may differ considerably.
Failures in the TX/RX paths are detected by one or more failure detection systems/alarm
types:
-

226

VSWR Monitoring
Examples of corresponding alarms:
Combining Equipment:
Error ID <no> DUAMCO: VSWR alarm HIGH
CU:
Error ID <no> RF power reflected into powerstage
RX Diversity Alarms
Example:
Error ID <no> One of the two diversity receivers fails
TNF Monitoring (Filter Combiner)
Example of corresponding alarms:
Error ID <no> FICOM_TNFP: TNF tuning alarm
LNA Alarms
Examples:
Error ID <no> DIAMCO: RX alarm LOW
Error ID <no> DIAMCO: RX alarm HIGH
Error ID <no> DUAMCO: RX alarm LOW
Error ID <no> DUAMCO: RX alarm HIGH
Sleeping Cell Detection
BSC alarm: Transceiver Problem (Specific Problem: No call in
cell within a predefined time frame)
Online RF Loopback
Error ID <no> Increased path loss difference

HW/SW Compatibility During Download from LMT/BSC


This feature allows a compatibility check of the swLoad and the current HW situation of
the BTSE, there by preventing a download of a swLoad which will not run on the specific
BTSE.
This check is done by means of a compatibility matrix - the Version Attachment Mechanism (VAM) file which is the second file of the swLoad. The check is carried out when
this VAM file is received in the BTSE. Upon a negative result, the download of the
swImages is stopped.
This check is only performed in the load phase.
swLoad: GSM notation for a complete SW package containing all the load SW of a network element.
swImage: GSM notation for the load SW package for a single module inside a network
element.
VAM file: represents the context between the swImages and the HW-SW compatibility.

BTSE Alarm Information


On each BTSE board a local alarm queue for 30 alarms is available. Every 100 ms 1
alarm is sent to the COBA. If currently more alarms are generated, the queue gets full
and a reset is performed on the board. After the board is restarted, a corresponding Failure Event Report is sent.
The following information is forwarded from the BTSE to the BSC :
1. Managed object class
2. Managed object instance
3. Error information

Probable Cause Value


Probable cause of the fault or error. The probable cause is taken out of a predefined set
of values, defined for each event type.

5.3.2

Event Types
Errors are classified in the following categories (so called event types):

5.3.2.1

Equipment Errors
detected by hardware check or application software

5.3.2.2

Processing Errors
detected by online software checks and audits

5.3.2.3

Communication Errors
detected by protocols

5.3.2.4

Quality of Service Errors


They depend on:

5.3.2.5

MMN:BTSE
BS-240 / 240 II / 240XL / 240XL II

Environmental Errors
These errors depend on environmental conditions e.g. temperature, door open or
smoke.
In general, these faults are signalled to the ACT module.

5.3.3

Perceived Severity
The severity level indicates to what extent the functionality of the BTSE is affected. The
following values are used:

5.3.3.1

Critical
The critical severity level indicates that a service affecting condition has occurred and
an immediate corrective action is required. Such a severity can be reported, for example, if an equipment related managed object MO breaks down completely.

5.3.3.2

Major
The major severity level indicates that a service affecting condition has developed and
an urgent corrective action is required. Such a severity can be reported for example, if
there is a severe degradation in the capability of the equipment related managed object
(MO).

5.3.3.3

Minor
The minor severity level indicates the existence of a non-service affecting fault condition
and that corrective action should be taken in order to prevent a more serious (for example, service affecting) fault. Such a severity can be reported, for example, when the detected alarm condition is not currently degrading the capacity of the equipment related
managed objects (MO).

5.3.3.4

Warning
The warning severity level indicates the detection of a potential or impending service affecting fault, before any significant effects have been detected. Actions should be taken
to further diagnose (if necessary) and correct the problem in order to prevent it from becoming a fault causing more severe interference to services.

5.3.4

Trend Indication
This parameter specifies the current severity trend of the equipment related managed
object.

5.3.5

Immediate Defense Action


The immediate defense action is performed by the BTSE software to try and solve the
problem. If there is no corresponding defense action, NA is reported.

Numbering of BTSE Components


General Rules
Relative Numbering
In general, the relative numbering (i.e. logical numbering) of the units starts with the figure zero (0). That means that the first of a set of devices, modules or racks / shelters is
assigned the number 0; the next one the number 1 in sequence, etc.
With the exception of Abis-lines, the numbering starts with 1, 2, 3 ...

Maintenance
Base Transceiver Station Equipment

Specific Rules
Rack Numbering
The first rack in a BTSEplus is called Base Rack and is assigned the number 0. If additional space is required for transceivers and combining equipment, the base rack is extended by an Extension Rack. Altogether, beside one Base Rack, two Extension Racks
(one Extension Rack for BS-240XL / 240XL II), a maximum of 5 Service Racks can be
installed for one BTSEplus.
The rule for numbering of the racks is shown in the table below. Note, that the numbering
of the Service Racks always begins with the number 3, even, if the Extension Racks 1
or 2 does not exist.

Rack Numbering

Slot Numbering Inside the Racks or Shelters


In a rack, slot numbers are defined for accommodation of CUs, ACOMs and MUCOs.
There are 8 CU slots (0...7), 4 ACOM slots (0...3) and 2 MUCO slots (0, 1) in the BS-240
/ 240 II and 12 CU slots (0...11), 4 ACOM slots (0...3) and 4 MUCO slots (0...3) in the
BS-240XL / 240 II. Additionally, in the Base Rack, 4 CORE slots are defined for housing
the core units and their redundant units. Slot numbering in the Base Rack and the Extension Rack is equal for CUs, ACOMs and MUCOs.
The HPDU 0 is located at the left and the HPDU 1 at the right side on top of the rack.
Figure Fig. 4.10 shows, as an example, the arrangement of a BTSEplus with one Base
Rack (Rack 0), 2 Extension Racks (Rack 1 and 2) and 2 Service Racks (Rack 3 and 4).

5.5.3

Remote Inventory Data


The function Remote Inventory of the Siemens Base station System performs electronic, non-volatile storing of the complete, individual product identification data (PID) of
each inventoried object.
Modules that have inventory data on board are called ob_RIUs (on-board Remote Inventory Units). The PID of these ob_RIUs is automatically loaded to the inventory data
file (IDF).
In order to include inventory data of objects without a non volatile storage (e. g. frames,
racks, OEM components), the data of these so called nob_RIUs (not on-board Remote
Inventory Units) are entered into an inventory data table (IDT) via the LMT and the offline
tool IDF Evolution. These data are stored on the COBA as a nob_RIU file (NOB). Supplemented with a footer and header, the IDT can be exported and stored as an inventory
data file (IDF) for backup purposes.

Maintenance
Base Transceiver Station Equipment

MMN:BTSE
BS-240 / 240 II / 240XL / 240XL II

In the event of the replacement of a nob_RIU component, the NOB file must be updated
manually and the backup IDF file with the inventory data, which is stored on site, must
be updated as well.
In case of a COBA replacement, the inventory data that was stored on the removed
COBA must be rebuilt. This can be done by using the backup IDF file.
For ob-RIU replacements the inventory data file is updated automatically.

Diagnostics / Test
General
In general the diagnosis subsystem is for testing the functionality of BTSE HW resources to detect and localize hardware faults. The verification of the functionality of a new or
replaced hardware unit before operation is an especially important feature of diagnosis.
The task of diagnosis is to perform tests for the BTS processor modules, initiated from
the LMT
The successful replacement of analog modules can only be verified by reactivating the
BTSE.

Requirements for Starting the BTSE Module Test


The module test is controlled by the LMT; therefore the LMT must be plugged in at the
plug position and the user logged on. The principle sequence is as follows:

change the administrative state from unlocked to locked
