5 Transmission and Networking of the BTS

Airbridge BTS3900A CDMA Base Station


Product Description

5.1 Star Networking Mode


This section describes the application scenarios, advantages, and disadvantages of the star
networking mode.

Application Scenarios
As the most commonly used networking mode, the star networking mode is especially applicable
to densely populated areas.
Figure 5-1 shows the star networking mode.
Figure 5-1 Star networking mode

Advantages
l

The BTS is directly connected to the BSC, thus guaranteeing simplicity in networking and
convenience in engineering, maintenance, and capacity expansion.

Data transmission is implemented directly between the BTS and the BSC, and therefore
signals do not have to go through many nodes. In this way, the reliability of the line is high.

Disadvantages
The star networking modes require more transmission resources than other networking modes.

5.2 Chain Networking Mode


This section describes the application scenarios, advantages, and disadvantages of the chain
networking mode.

Product Description

5 Transmission and Networking of the BTS

Application Scenarios
The chain networking mode is applicable to sparsely populated strip areas, for example, areas
along superhighways and railways.
Figure 5-2 shows the chain networking mode.
Figure 5-2 Chain networking mode

Advantages
The chain networking mode helps reduce the costs of transmission equipment, of engineering
construction, and of transmission link rental.

Disadvantages
l

Signals go through a large number of nodes, and therefore the line reliability is low.

Faults in upper-level BTSs may affect the normal operation of lower-level BTSs.

The number of chain levels cannot exceed three.

5.3 Tree Networking Mode


This section describes the application scenarios, advantages, and disadvantages of the tree
networking mode.

Application Scenarios
The tree networking mode is applicable to areas where network structures, site distribution, and
subscriber distribution are complicated, for example, areas where subscribers are widely
distributed and hot spots gather.
Figure 5-3 shows the tree networking mode.

Advantages
The advantage of the tree networking mode over the star networking mode is that the former
lowers the costs of the transmission equipment, the costs of engineering projects, and the rental
of transmission links.

Disadvantages

5-4

Signals travel through many nodes, which cause low transmission reliability and
construction and maintenance difficulties.

Faults in upper-level BTSs may affect the normal operation of lower-level BTSs.

Capacity expansion is difficult because it may require extensive network reconstruction.

The number of tree levels cannot exceed three.

6.1 Operation and Maintenance Modes of the BTS


This section describes the operation and maintenance modes of the BTS. The BTS can be
maintained through the LMT, through the centralized network management system, or locally.
Figure 6-1 shows the networking of the operation and maintenance system.
Figure 6-1 Networking of the operation and maintenance system

The BTS supports the following operation and maintenance modes:

6-2

Maintenance through the centralized network management system: The M2000, Huawei's
centralized management system for wireless networks, can be used to maintain BTSs
through the operation and maintenance network. The M2000 supports the operation and
maintenance of sites, cells, carriers, channels, and boards. Centralized network
management is used for the maintenance of multiple BTSs.

Maintenance through the LMT: The LMT can be used to maintain the BTS through the
operation and maintenance link provided by the Abis interface between the BSC and the
BTS. The LMT communicates with the BSC through a LAN. Through the LMT, you can
perform operation and maintenance for the sites, cells, carriers, channels, and boards. The
LMT is used to configure and adjust the data of the BSC and BTS.

Local maintenance: The maintenance terminal of the BTS is used to maintain the BTS
locally through Ethernet. Through the maintenance terminal of the BTS, you can perform
operation and maintenance for the sites, cells, carriers, baseband, channels, and boards. The
maintenance terminal is used to maintain single BTS.

6.2 Operation and Maintenance Functions of the BTS


The OM system of the BTS supports equipment management, software management,
configuration management, service management, performance management, security
management, alarm management, and environment monitoring.

Equipment Management
Equipment management refers to equipment maintenance and data configuration. The detailed
functions are as follows:
l

Equipment maintenance refers to maintenance of the equipment or boards, for example,


board resetting, management of equipment status, equipment self-testing, active/standby
switchovers, and time calibration.

Data configuration refers to configuration, querying, and backing up of equipment


parameters, for example, configuration of the BTS hardware, configuration of clock
parameters, configuration of algorithm parameters, and configuration of RF parameters.

Software Management
The functions involved in software management are as follows:
l

Software activation

Checks of compatibility between software and hardware versions

Version management, for example, querying of hardware and software versions

Upgrades of software versions

Configuration Management
The functions involved in configuration management are as follows:
l

Consistency checks for added, deleted, and Changed data of the BTS

Automatic data backup

Dynamic and static modes for data configuration. In dynamic mode, changes made to data
take effect immediately. In static mode, changes made to data take effect after the BTS is
reset.

Service Management
The functions involved in service management are as follows:
l

The BTS provides the boards and environment monitoring device with OM functions such
as parameter configuration and alarm querying.

The BTS supports comprehensive hardware installation and self-testing functions.

Performance Management
The functions involved in performance management are as follows:
l

Issue 11 (2010-06-18)

The system monitors the performance of the internal and external communication network.
Alarms are generated when the performance becomes poor.

6 Operation and Maintenance of the BTS

Airbridge BTS3900A CDMA Base Station


Product Description

The system monitors traffic on each port and collects technical data of each port.

The system supports the monitoring of the usage of key components such as the CPU.

Security Management
Security management involves functions such as connection management between the BTS
software and the OMC, subscriber authentication, and bi-directional resolution of encryption
and interface messages.

Alarm Management
Alarm management involves equipment alarm management and environment alarm
management.
l

Equipment alarm management


The system detects and reports faults or exceptions in the equipment in real time. Through
the alarm management function of the LMT or M2000, the alarm information is displayed,
and suggestions on handling the alarms are given.
The alarm management system of the M2000 can be connected to an alarm box through a
serial port and supports audible or visual alarms. The alarms can be subscribed to and
forwarded to the mobile phones or pagers of maintenance personnel so that the maintenance
personnel can handle the faults in time.

Environment alarm management


The BTS equipment rooms are generally unmanned and distributed across wide areas. The
equipment works in adverse environments and is subject to emergencies. The BTS has a
powerful environment monitoring system, which guarantees the normal running of the
equipment and helps you deal with emergencies.

The functions involved in alarm management are as follows:


l

Alarm detection

Alarm reporting

Alarm masking

Alarm acknowledgement

Alarm pre-processing

Alarm correlation processing

Help information on alarm handling
