Disconnecting cables

1 Disconnecting cables
Purpose
Disconnecting cables might be needed when, for example, changing configurations,
recommissioning or replacing modules.

f
Danger of eye damage caused by an invisible laser beam. The optical STM-1 transmission sub-module (FTOA) has no automatic laser shutdown (ALS) feature. Make sure
that the laser is switched off before removing the cable.

f
Optical fibre cables are fragile. Be careful when disconnecting any cables.
Steps
1

Remove any cable ties.

Detach the cable connector seal from the module mechanics.


Grip the connector seal by the stiffened end of the seal (the end connected to the connector) as shown in the Figure Detaching the cable connector seal.

2 Replacing module fans


2.1

Replacing module fans from the back


Purpose
If a module fan fails, it must be replaced with a new one. Replacing the fan from the back
of the module requires a back access and the minimum 200 mm maintenance space
behind the BTS. If there is not enough space for replacing the fans from the back, the
fans can also be replaced from the front. See section Replacing module fans from the
front in this document for more detailed instructions.
These instructions show how to replace the module fans if you have a sheet metal fan
carrier. If you have a plastic fan carrier, see section Replacing plastic fan carrier in this
document.
Before you start

f
Risk of personal injury. Do not touch the fans.

f
The modules might be damaged if operated for a long time in the upper ambient temperature range. Replace a faulty unit as soon as possible.

2.2

Replacing module fans from the front


Purpose
If a module fan fails, it must be replaced with a new one. Modules can be replaced from
the front of the base station by pulling out the module core. The module core can be
pulled out without dismounting the module stack.
These instructions show how to replace the module fans if you have a sheet metal fan
carrier. If you have a plastic fan carrier, see section Replacing plastic fan carrier in this
document.
Before you start

f
The modules might be damaged if operated for a long time in the upper ambient temperature range. Replace a faulty unit as soon as possible.

f
The fans might break if the module core rests on the fans when it is out of the casing.
Do not rest the core on the fans.

Check whether the maintenance straps inside the module covers are damaged when
opening the covers for maintenance purposes. Make sure there are no visual defects.
Replace worn or damaged maintenance straps.

HW replacement/upgrade

8 HW replacement/upgrade
License files are tied to certain target identifiers of network elements. Broken HW may
have an impact on the license files depending on whether the unit stores the license files
or the target identifier of the network element:

If a unit (for instance, RF Module) that does not store the license files and does not
contain the target identifier of the network element is swapped, there is no impact
on the licenses.
If a unit that stores the license files is swapped, copies of the old license files must
be redistributed to the network element.
If a unit that contains the target identifier of the network element is swapped, new
license files must be created and distributed to the network element. The old
licenses are not needed anymore and can be released back to the pool by using the
pool substitute process. License pools have to be always available so that new
licenses files can be delivered to the NE immediately when HW has been replaced.

Pool substitute process


Pool substitute process releases the license files that were tied to a broken Target Identifier back to the pool for further usage.
See the following steps if System Module is broken. Changing a transmission submodule does not affect licensing.
The pool substitute process includes the following steps:
1. A Pool substitute request file including a reason code is generated by using the
NetActTM Network Licence Manager application.
2. Substitute request file is imported to the Nokia Licence Generator.
3. Pool Substitute Permission File is created with the Nokia Licence Generator.
4. Pool Substitute Permission File is imported to the NetActTM Cluster of the broken
HW.
5. Licenses related to the broken HW are released.
The same substitute processes are also applied in case of a typing error in target identifier information in NetActTM (that is, a wrong target for the license is selected). The
broken HW and error cases are separated by reason codes in the NetActTM Network
Licence Manager application as well as in the files that are generated in the NetActTM
Regional Cluster and delivered to LG.
