1.1 Hardware Description


1.1.1 Configurations
With this product, one BTS comprises up to six units of two TRX, in a
hierarchical interconnection.
Only one of these units handles the Abis lines; this unit called the master,
the other units called slaves.
A unit can have one antenna output (3.2 W/TRX max. power) or two
antenna outputs (7 W/TRX max. power).
One lower slave cannot be equipped because of 12 TRX limitation!
In the following exemples the Slave 22 is eliminated, but depending on site
configuration, you can have maximum 3 lower slave units on the 4 possible
positions: Slave11, Slave12, Slave 21, Slave 22.

1.3 Prerequisites
The following prerequisites apply:
The site must comply with the Safety rules ( See BSS Methods Handbook
)
The BSC must be operational and ready for BTS connection
The following requirement is not mandatory: antenna connected.

1.4 Initial State


Before starting commissioning:
The MOCOs are installed and connected as described in the installation
manual: power supply, PCM (for master unit) even not connected to the
network, external alarms
The micro-BTS units are not plugged into their connection boxes.

1.5 Final State


After finishing commissioning:
The BTS is installed (master and slave units)

3BK 17422 3081 RJZZA Ed.02

1 General Information

The BTS is commissioned, powered up and connected to the BSC via a


PCM interface ready for network integration
Integrated antenna option: integrated antennas are installed on all units
Antennas present: the antennas have been connected
Antennas absent: the tests have been carried out under load.

5 Checking Power Supply and Powering Up

5.1 Case 1: A9110-E BTS Without SSC


Procedure

1. Check the power panel to make sure the breakers are OFF
2. Using a multimeter, check at each COBO that there is no voltage between L
(line) and N (neutral) , N and PE (protective earth), L and PE (See Figure 25 )
3. Close the circuit breakers at the power panel
4. Check the voltage (220 V AC) between line (L) and neutral (N) on the
ACout BTS connector of each COBO
5. Check that there is no voltage between N and PE
6. Power up the unit by plugging in their ACout BTS connectors.
FIRST power up the master unit, THEN power up the slave units!
The slave units MUST be powered up within seconds after powering
up the master unit.

5.2 Case 2: A9110-E BTS With SSC


Procedure

1. Check the power panel to make sure the SSC breakers are OFF
2. Check the SSC to make sure main AC switch S1 is off and no green LEDs
are lit (See Figure 26 )
3. Close the circuit breakers at the site power panel
4. Close main switch S1, the AC mains breaker then the BTS1, BTS2,
BTS3 circuit breakers in the SSC
5. Check the 220 V AC voltage between line (L) and neutral (N) on the ACout
BTS connector (X401) of each COBO (See Figure 25 )
6. Check that there is no voltage between N and PE
7. Check that the Mains Power supply 1 and 2 and Charger LEDs are lit on
the SSC front panel
8. Push (if necessary) the Battery backup button to on (red LED is not lit)
9. Power up the A9110-E units by plugging in their ACout BTS connectors.
FIRST power up the master unit, THEN power up the slave units!
The slave units MUST be powered up within seconds after powering
up the master unit.
10. Check that the BTS remains on battery supply if main switch S1 is
disconnected, then set the switch S1 to ON
11. Push and hold down the Fan Test button and check that the SSC top fans
are working.

inserting a red disconnecting pin into the terminal block
2. On the BTS Terminal, check that the appropriate alarm message is
generated
3. Close the circuit that has been opened at the terminal block by removing the
disconnecting pin
4. On the BTS Terminal, check that the external alarm message has
disappeared.

Check the Alarms That


Do Not Reach the DDF

In COBO (master and slaves)


1. For the declared external alarms that do not reach the DDF, generate an
alarm by opening and then closing a loop (See Connectors Description (in
section C) in appendix for connectors description)
2. Check alarm reporting on the BTS Terminal.

Note:

If the Fan option was included, check the fan alarm:


1. Disconnect the fan power supply cable from ACCO board
2. On the BTS Terminal , check that the alarm is present:
BTS1, BTS EXTERN, Air condition (1)

3. Plug in the fan power supply cable and check that the alarm is cleared.

Note:

If the SSC option was included, check the external alarms:


1. Set the mains switch S1 to OFF to check mains power failure
2. On the BTS Terminal, check that alarm 2 is present, then set switch S1
to ON again
3. On the BTS Terminal, check that alarm 3 is present (SSC door open) by
completely closing (with the key) and opening the door.

Note:

If the VSWR option was included, check the external alarms:


1. Make the connections as follows:
For A9110-E BTS units with one antenna output:

Commissioning Station Unit Test...
The Station Unit Test window appears.
In the Station Unit Test window, select external loop
Click [ Start ].
A message appears prompting you to fit the shortcut connector.
Do not use any shortcut connector, because you are testing the cabling to
the DDF, not the ABISCO board.
2. At the DDF (not on ABISCO) set up loops between TX and RX for Abis1
and Abis2, using wires.
It is important for both Abis links to be looped!

3. At BTS Terminal:
Click [ Ok ]
Remove the loops when the respective message window appears and
then click [ Ok ]
Wait for the test to finish
Check that the list of tests shown in the Station Unit Test window is Ok
Click [ Cancel ].

The mapping for alarms 9-56 are take into consideration only if the slave units
are installed. Otherwise they are considered disabled and are not reported.

All the alarms that are not used are set to 255 . This means that they are
disabled.
Select each external alarm 1- 56 (See Figure 28 ) and modify the logical
number as required.
If you select [ Default Setting ] in the Remote Inventory window of
UT_BCB_17, the good values will be directly mapped for the alarms, detailed in
the following tables.
