About this document

About this document


This document gives you a NetAct system level view of how to maintain
sites that support the optional Multi-BCF Control feature. The basic idea in
Multi-BCF Control is to combine the resources of several base stations into
one logical cell. The following BTS site type combinations can be used in
the Multi-BCF configuration:
.

Nokia TalkFamily + Nokia TalkFamily

Nokia TalkFamily + Nokia UltraSite or Nokia ConnectSite 100

Nokia TalkFamily + Nokia MetroSite or Nokia ConnectSite 10

Nokia UltraSite or Nokia ConnectSite 100 + Nokia UltraSite or Nokia


ConnectSite 100

Nokia MetroSite or Nokia ConnectSite 10 + Nokia MetroSite or


Nokia ConnectSite 10

Nokia UltraSite + Flexi EDGE

Flexi EDGE + Flexi EDGE.

The operation this document describes is an example of the Nokia


TalkFamily + Nokia UltraSite combination, however, the same principle
applies to other combinations, too. You can perform the following tasks:

Create a Multi-BCF controlled BTS site by expanding an existing


Nokia TalkFamily base station with an UltraSite base station.

Cancel the creation by detaching the UltraSite base station from the
TalkFamily site.

Modify the segment configuration by moving a base station from one


segment to a new segment, by moving a base station from one
segment to another existing segment, or by changing the segment
configuration.

Delete BTSs from the segment.

Overview of the Multi-BCF feature

Overview of the Multi-BCF feature


Multi-BCF Control is an optional feature. It enables the inclusion of several
BTSs in one logical cell, allowing the operator to increase the capacity of a
cell while maintaining maximum spectral efficiency. Multi-BCF is supported
on the GSM 900 and GSM 1800 bands, as well as GSM 800 and GSM
1900 bands. The Multi-BCF control feature requires that MULTI BCF and
SEGMENT USAGE options are in use. Moreover, if the BTSs of the same
segment use different frequency bands (for example, 900 and 1800), the
COMMON BCCH option is required.
The feature uses the segment architecture which introduces a functionality
to manage the segment parameters. The segment is the same as the
telecom cell. The following figure gives an overview of the architecture.

Creating a Multi-BCF site

Creating a Multi-BCF site


A Multi-BCF controlled site is created by expanding an existing Nokia
TalkFamily base station with an UltraSite base station. In this operation the
Common BCCH feature will also be used.
In a TalkFamily - UltraSite configuration, it is logical to define the BCCHTRX to the UltraSite BTS because the link budget of the UltraSite BTS is
2dBm better than the link budget of a TalkFamily BTS.
Most of the tasks in this phase are instructed to be performed with CM
Editor.

3.1

3.2

Prerequisites for the operation


.

The UltraSite BTS has been installed, and the BTS sites have been
synchronised.

The BTS object for the UltraSite BTS has not yet been created.

Abis lines are connected.

An ET (Exchange Terminal) has been connected to the Abis


interface.

instructions, see Creating new managed objects in the network in CM
Editor Help.
After you have created the LAPD links, unlock them with CM Editor. For
instructions, see Locking and unlocking managed objects in the network in
CM Editor Help.

3.4

Creating the BCF and BTSs


Create the BCF and BTSs for the UltraSite BTS with CM Editor. Create the
new BTS to the segment that also contains the TalkFamily BTS. The
following parameters are mandatory for the new BTSs:
.

BTS ID

Segment ID of the master BTS

Frequency Band in Use.

Segment parameters are copied from the master BTS.

Note
If Recovery for BSS and Site Synchronisation feature is used and
UltraSite is added to a slave BCF chain, you need to define master
clock BCF ID (the first BCF in the chain) while creating the UltraSite
BCF.

For instructions, see Creating new managed objects in the network in CM


Editor Help.

3.5

Removing the BCCH channel from the TalkFamily

Maintaining Multi-BCF Sites

Remove the BCCH channel from the TalkFamily BTS (BCCH-TRX) with
CM Editor. Because UltraSite has a better link budget than TalkFamily, it is
better to have the BCCH channel in the TRX of the UltraSite BTS. For
instructions, see Modifying managed object values in the network in CM
Editor Help.

3.6

Creating a BCCH-TRX for the UltraSite BTS


Create a transceiver (TRX) and allocate a BCCH channel to the TRX for
the UltraSite BTS with CM Editor. After this, create other TRXs, if needed.
For instructions, see Creating new managed objects in the network in CM
Editor Help.

3.7

Modifying the POC parameters of the segment


Note
You can ignore this step if the power control parameter values of the
TalkFamily BTS are also acceptable for the UltraSite BTS.

If necessary, modify the POC parameters of the segment with CM Editor.


For instructions, see Modifying managed object values in the network in
CM Editor Help.

3.8

Defining the link budget difference and load limit


If not already set, define the TalkFamily - UltraSite link budget difference
for the TalkFamily base station (the BTS with no BCCH TRX) by modifying
the value of the Non-BCCH Layer Offset parameter with CM Editor.

14 (32)

# Nokia Siemens Networks

DN00306242
Issue 7-0 en

Creating a Multi-BCF site

Note
The Non-BCCH Layer Offset parameter is used to indicate how much
weaker the signal level of a BTS is when compared to that of the BCCH
BTS. Hence, the value of the parameter must always be set to 0 in the
BCCH BTS. A positive value of Non-BCCH Layer Offset in a BTS
indicates a signal level lower than in the BCCH BTS, and prevents the
SDCCH allocation for call setups and external handovers in that BTS.

Define also the BTS load limit for all the BTSs in the segment by modifying
the BTS Load In Segment parameter with CM Editor. You can define the
BTS Load In Segment parameter for all the BTSs of the segment. It is used
in controlling the load distribution between BTSs in a segment. The default
value when creating a BTS is 70%.
For instructions, see Modifying managed object values in the network in
CM Editor Help.

3.9

Modifying the HOC parameters of the segment


Note
You can ignore this step if the handover control parameter values of the
TalkFamily BTS are also acceptable for the UltraSite BTS.

If necessary, modify the handover control parameters of the segment with


CM Editor. For instructions, see Modifying managed object values in the
network in CM Editor Help.

Modifying the segment configuration using plans

Modifying the segment configuration


using plans
When modifying the segment configuration using plans, you need to do
one of the following operations:
.

Move a BTS from one segment to an existing segment.

Move a BTS from one segment to a new segment. The BTS that you
move starts to use the parameters of the new segment.

Modify the segment parameters.

Note that you perform a similar operation when you combine two
segments into one. In practice, you simply move all BTSs of one segment
to another segment. When you have moved all the BTSs from the
segment, it ceases to exist.

Note
Before starting this operation, it is recommended to export the actual
parameters for the ADCE/ADJW objects to an XML file.
If you must restore the original situation, first import the XML file to
create an ADCE/ADJW plan. Second, activate the automatically
created backup plan. Last, activate the adjacency plan with CM
Operations Manager.

5.2.1

Moving a BTS to an existing segment


Note
If the master BTS is moved to another segment, then a new master

Modifying the segment configuration using plans

To move a BTS to an existing segment


1.

Modify the Segment ID parameter.

2.

If the BCCH channel has originally been allocated for the TRX in the
moved BTS, remove the BCCH from the original TRX and allocate it
to another TRX in the old segment.

If you combine two segments into one (in other words, you move all BTSs
of a segment to another segment), the segment with no BTSs will cease to
exist.

5.2.2

Moving a BTS to a new segment


Note
New adjacencies cannot be planned in the segment split plan. First you
need to provision the segment split plan to the network. After the
provisioning, you can plan new adjacencies to the new segment in a
separate adjacency plan.

To move a BTS to a new segment


1.

Plan Segment ID, Segment Name, and Cell ID/LAC (it is mandatory
to plan either Cell ID or LAC).

2.

You can also plan other parameters, such as NCC, BCC, MCC, and
MNC.

3.

Plan the BCCH channel for the new segment. If the BCCH channel
has originally been allocated for the TRX in the moved BTS, allocate
it to another TRX in the old segment.

4.

If necessary, create BTSMs for the new segments with CM Editor.


For instructions, see Creating new managed objects and Editing
parameters in CM Editor Help.

Note
Because the HOC, POC, and GPC objects are automatically created,
you do not need to create them in the plan.

5.2.3

Modifying segment parameters


If you want to plan only segment parameters (that is, parameters that are
shared with all BTSs of the segment, such as NCC and BCC), plan the
changes to the master BTS. If the plan contains segment parameter
changes to any slave BTS, the plan activation will fail.
You can plan BTS-specific parameters (such as Hopping mode) to the
slave BTS as usual.

5.3

Checking the consistency of the parameters


To check parameters with CM Analyser

5.4

1.

Run the adequate rules from the CreatingSites_2G rule set (for
example, BcfTypeCombinations and MasterBtsHocPoc). For
instructions on running the checks, see CM Analyser Help.

2.

If there are errors reported, edit the plan with CM Editor and run the
checks again until there are no errors in the plan.

Provisioning the plan to the network


Provision the plan to the network with CM Operations Manager. For
instructions, see Provisioning plans in CM Operations Manager Help.

Note
File based plan provisioning cannot be used for segment
reconfiguration in S12 BSCs. With S12 BSCs, ensure that the check
box Use file based activation method for S12 BSC in the CM
Operations Manager UI is not checked.
