the throughput decreases with the decrement of packet length. but the CPU usage consumed by a single call changes. certain coefficients are made for different typical rates based on the experience data of commercial networks and security considerations.SRAN8. When the traffic model is changed. the available CPU usage of one EGPUa (for the control plane) board remains unchanged (60%).

The number of required EPSs is calculated as follows:

For a new site

Number of required EPSs_1 = ROUNDUP ((Number of required EXOUa boards –
Number of EXOUa boards that can be housed in an MPS)/Number of EXOUa boards
that can be housed in an EPS,0)
If the number of required EXOUa boards is smaller than that can be housed in an
MPS, the number of required EPSs is 0.

Number of required EPSs_2 = ROUNDUP [(Number of required interface boards –
Number of interface boards that can be housed in an MPS)/Number of interface
boards that can be housed in an EPS]
If the number of required interface boards is smaller than that can be housed in an
MPS, the number of required EPSs_2 is 0.

Number of required EPSs_3 = ROUNDUP [(Number of required EGPUa/EXPUa
boards + Number of required interface boards – Number of universal slots provided
by the MPS)/Number of universal slots provided by one EPS]
If the number of required EGPUa/EXPUa boards and interface boards is smaller than
the number of universal slots provided by the MPS, the number of required EPSs_3 is
0.


Number of EPSs = MAX (Number of required EPSs_1, Number of required EPSs_2,

Smart Service Processing Throughput (per 50Mbps)

BSC HW TRX Capacity (per TRX)- LGMIBHTC
BSC HW TRX Capacity (per TRX) represents the number of activated TRXs, which ranges
from 0 to 24,000. The BSC calculates the number of activated TRXs after new BTSs, cells or
TRXs are added and checks whether it is greater than the number specified by the "BSC HW
TRX Capacity (per TRX)" license.

BSC HW PDCH Capacity (per PDCH)- LGMIBHDC
BSC HW PDCH Capacity (per PDCH) represents the number of activated PDCHs, which
ranges from 0 to 96,000. The number of static PDCHs is determined before BSC
configuration. The number of dynamic PDCHs is determined by the BSC. If the number of
activated PDCHs is more than the number specified by the "BSC HW PDCH Capacity (per
PDCH)" license, configuring or allocating PDCHs is not allowed.

Before the BSC is configured, required hardware capacity licenses must be obtained.

Smart Service Processing Throughput(per 50Mbps)- LGW1DPIHC02
Represents BSC6910 Hardware Capacity of ENIUa board.
Smart Service Processing Throughput (per 50Mbps): is the hardware capacity license of
ENIUa boards on the BSC6910. The ENIUa can enable hardware processing capability only
when "Resource-BSC6910-LGW1DPIHC02-Evolved Network Intelligence Processing
Throughput(per 50Mbps)" is loaded. Each license provides a throughput of 50 Mbit/s. The
maximum number of license files is calculated by dividing NIUa processing capability and 50
Mbit/s. The ENIUa can process DPI services on GSM and UMTS sides at one time. The
traffic carried on the NIUa board is the sum of traffic over GSM Gb interfaces and UMTS Iu
interfaces.
If the BSC6900 is replaced by a BSC6910, the BSC license cannot be used and needs to be
quoted again. However the existing BTS license can be directly used by using license
adjusting tools after the BSC6910 is used.

The procedure for configuring a newly deployed BSC6910 GU is as follows: 1.3 BSC6910 GU Product Configurations Table 3-20 describes the hardware configuration principles of the BSC6910 GU. Number of cabinets = ROUNDUP[(Number of GSM subracks + Number of UMTS subracks)/3]. A maximum of two cabinets (excluding the cabinets housing TC subracks) can be configured. Calculate the UMTS configuration and GSM configuration based on the network requirements. 3. ENIUa boards processing the DPI function are separately configured on the GSM and UMTS networks. an extra BSC6910 GU needs to be added. The preceding principles apply to BSC6910 GU deployment and capacity expansion. then configuration calculation is complete.
