Corrective maintenance activity


This part describes the corrective maintenance activity applicable to the 9311 Macro ID cabinets.

Corrective maintenance
The network maintenance is based on the network supervision, using the OAM graphical interface.
For more information, refer to Alcatel-Lucent 9353 Management System - User Guide
(NN-20500-032).
It is also based on the identification and replacement of equipment faulty items, using the alarms.
The process is divided into the two following steps:

locating and identifying the equipment faulty items, using the information provided in
Alcatel-Lucent 9300 W-CDMA Product Family - Node B Alarms Reference Guide
(NN-20500-018)

replacing the equipment faulty items, using the replacement procedures given in this guide

Description of a replacement procedure


A replacement procedure is divided into the following parts:

title

main body with following information:


intervention time
tools required
step-by-step actions
one or more figures showing the Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) schematically

Intervention restrictions
There may be a lapse of time between the identification of the alarm at the Network Service Platform
Graphic User Interface (GUI) and the time you arrive at the site.
You must be synchronized with the access network controller or system administrator (by telephone)
before an on-site intervention, in the following cases:

isolating procedures

completion of an on-site intervention

return to service procedure

General personnel safety instructions


The personnel must obey the safety instructions specific to the installation site:

rules concerning the premises (see instructions posted on site or in the building)

rules linked to general personnel safety instructions

The personnel working on the cabinet must be authorized to work according to security standards.

Equipment safety instructions

9311 Macro ID introduction


The 9311 Macro ID is an ETSI UMTS Node B element and it supports the Iub interface.
A Node B supports Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) mode, Time Division Duplex (TDD) mode, or
dual-mode operation.
The 9311 Macro ID only supports the FDD mode.
The 9311 Macro ID is responsible for radio transmission/reception from/to one or more cells to/from
the User Equipment (UE).
The 9311 Macro ID provides:

the means of communication between a UE and a network using Transport Channels

physical layer channels which are necessary to synchronize the downlink and also to perform cell
selection/reselection and hand over preparation

measurement information to the RNC for radio resource management (hand over, power control)

The 9311 Macro ID provides up to eight E1/T1 (only T1 for UMTS 850) with Inversion Multiplexing
ATM (IMA) or Drop and Insert capability (fractional E1/T1). The 9311 Macro ID also supports
multi-PCM without IMA.

9311 Macro ID interfaces


The 9311 Macro ID provides the following interfaces:

Uu interface (UMTS User interface): this interface is used between the Node B and the UE. It is
dependent on the technology used on the radio (for example, it can be W-CDMA or TD/CDMA).

Iub interface (Interface Node B): this interface lies between the RNC and the 9311 Macro ID. It
allows to connect RNCs.

9311 Macro ID cabinet


The 9311 Macro ID cabinet is a single 600 mm-wide cabinet closed by one door. It is designed for
ease of manufacture, transportation, installation, system assembly, repair and testing.
The 9311 Macro ID cabinet must be installed in an air conditioned environment.
It has been designed to improve mechanical and acoustic performance.
The 9311 Macro ID can operate into the following bandwidths:

2100 MHz

1700/2100 MHz

1900 MHz

900 MHz

850 MHz

9311 Macro ID modules


The alpha-modules were the first generation of modules delivered by Alcatel-Lucent.
Then Alcatel-Lucent delivered a second generation of modules:

iModules (also called beta-modules) and iModules-2


These modules are compatible with existing ones. They are transparent to the user as they do
not provide a capacity change (except for iCEM).

MCPA-2
The MCPA-2 module operates into the 2100 bandwidth.

The third generation of modules delivered by Alcatel-Lucent were the following:

xCCM

xCEM

xTRM

This module is supported by all the BTS 12010 cabinets. The MCPA-3 module operates into the
2100 bandwidth.

Alcatel-Lucent also provides the following modules:

xTRM-2
The latest xTRM generation. The xTRM-2 module operates into the 2100 bandwidth.

MCPA 60W
The MCPA 60W module operates into the 2100 and 850 bandwidths.

SCPA 55W
The SCPA 55W module operates into the 900 bandwidth.

DDM-E
The DDM-E module operates into the 900 bandwidth.

CAUTION
Impact on the equipment
Before connecting the power cable to the MCPA/SCPA module
connector, check the correct side of the D-sub connector.
Make sure the small side of the MCPA/SCPA module connector
is connected to the small side of the MCPA/SCPA module cable
connector.
Never connect the small side with the large side, otherwise
there is a risk of MCPA/SCPA module failure.

MCPA FIRMWARE CONDITIONAL DOWNLOAD AFTER MCPA REPLACEMENT


After an MCPA replacement (as well as during Node B initialization), the Node B downloads a new
firmware for certain types of MCPA modules.
Cajun MCPA download
The concerned MCPA modules are all MCPA 2100 modules (PEC: NTUM30AA), from D4, E4, 01,
and 02 hardware releases of Cajun type MCPA modules.
The Cajun designation identifies the first generation of UMTS MCPA modules deployed. From now
on, the firmware of these MCPA modules is automatically aligned to the required version.
Downloading error at the OMC-B
After an MCPA replacement, the firmware of the replacing MCPA is upgraded for the mentioned
MCPA types. Most of the time, this firmware download is successful, and allows to upgrade the
Cajun MCPA module that has just been inserted without resetting the Node B. But in some rare
cases, the download attempt may result in a downloading error and a minor alarm reporting to the
OMC-B, with the following status:

Cause: DOWNLOADING ERROR

Equipment Type: MCPA

Perceived Severity: MINOR

This alarm is minor since the MCPA continues to be operational in its not upgraded version. The
DOWNLOADING ERROR cause has four sub-causes, that are described in the following table.

Action

1.

CAUTION
General note on the procedure
If you have to leave the site, because it is not possible to obtain
an MCA backup file quickly, do not change the faulty MCA and
disconnect the PCM cable from the CCM front panel.

CAUTION
Service interruption
Disconnection of the PCM cable is going to cause a service
interruption of the Node B. Please notify the OMC administrator.
Open the Node B door.
2. Three cases can occur:

Case 1: The CCM is not faulty and was not replaced. Go to step 3.

Case 2: The CCM has just been replaced. Go to step 14.

NN-20500-009 03.13/EN Standard July 2009

Copyright 2005-2009 Alcatel-Lucent

123

Case 3: During the first site intervention, the MCA backup file was necessary but impossible
to obtain quickly.
For this second intervention, make sure the coordinator sent you the most recent MCA
backup file. If you have a PC (TIL), store the file in the <default
path>\BTS@223.254.244\MCABackup folder. The number after the IC_APPROVED prefix
must be the same as the serial number of the Node B. Go to step 4.
Note: If the coordinator did not send you the MCA backup file and if it is impossible to
obtain it quickly, do not change the faulty MCA, disconnect the PCM cable from the CCM
front panel, leave the site and come back when you have the appropriate MCA backup file.

3. Apply the "Creating the MCA backup file" procedure defined in Alcatel-Lucent Node B Commissioning & Fault Management User Manual: TIL (NN-20500-019).
4. Locate the MCA module. (See legend 9 in 9311 Macro ID cabinet layout.)
5. Disconnect the three cables connected on the MCA front panel.
6. Undo the two fixing screws on the MCA front panel (1).
7. Remove the faulty MCA module.
8. Insert the new MCA module.
9. Tighten the two fixing screws on the MCA front panel.
10. Reconnect the three cables on the MCA front panel.
11. Apply the "Updating an empty MCA module" procedure defined in Alcatel-Lucent Node B Commissioning & Fault Management User Manual: TIL (NN-20500-019).
12. If the message is MCA update forbidden, call the next level of support.
13. Close the Node B door.
14. <Following step 2. Case 2> Before proceeding, ask the coordinator to send you the most recent
MCA backup file. When you receive the file :
a. Check the file name. The number after "IC_APPROVED_" prefix must be the same as the
serial number of the Node B.
b. Ask the coordinator to save the file. If you have a PC (TIL), save the file in the <Default
path>\BTS@223.254.254.244\MCABackup folder. The <Default path> is the path defined
when you executed the TIL procedure.
Note: If it is not possible to receive the file quickly, you should leave the site and come back
