Configuring IP for BTS O&M (RNC-BTS/AXC) via ATM

Purpose
The purpose of this procedure is to configure IP for BTS O&M (RNC-BTS/AXC and
RNC-FlexiBTS). The alternative ways to configure IP for BTS O&M are detailed below:
 tree topology ATM layer for O&M network to BTS, or
 star topology ATM layer for O&M network to BTS.
By using star topology, O&M connections can use the same VPI as control plane
traffic. The VPI connection must then be configured as CBR class. This also means
that if the O&M VCI is configured to UBR class, it can use the same maximum
capacity that is the bit rate for VPI.
You should use the dedicated VPI for O&M traffic in the tree model so that the O&M
connection can use the free capacity of the link more easily.

Currently, FlexiBTS does not support ATM cross-connecting. Therefore, a FlexiBTS can
be configured only in a star topology or as the last BTS in a tree topology.

For more information on the topologies, see the Nokia Siemens Networks WCDMA
RAN System Information Set in NOLS.
You can use either static routing or dynamic routing (OSPF) for BTS O&M. If you use
OSPF, you do not need to configure static routes towards the BTSs. When you create
the OSPF configuration, the routes are automatically created after the configuration.
With OSPF, you must use unnumbered interfaces towards the BTS, because the AXC
only supports unnumbered interfaces. If you have numbered point-to-point interfaces
with static routing in use and you want to activate OSPF also to these interfaces, you
must modify the interface type. For instructions on how to modify point-to-point
interfaces, see Configuring IP parameters and addresses of interfaces in IP
Connection Configuration for RNC.

Currently, FlexiBTS does not support dynamic (OSPF) routing and numbered IP
interfaces. Therefore, only static routing must be used towards a FlexiBTS and the IP
interface type must be unnumbered.

Before you start
You can configure O&M network towards BTS via the ATM interfaces on OMU or
NPS1(P).

Figure 22: Configuring O&M network towards BTS via the ATM interface on OMU

In the above figure, the external IPoA interface is configured in OMU. NPS1 is used in
the same way as NIP1 and NIS1.

IFFE0 interface's MTU is permanent 1500 and NPS1 unit can not support fragmentation.Figure 23: Configuring O&M network towards BTS via the ATM interface on NPS1(P) The above configuration supports to connect to BTS via the two function units (OMU and NPS1(P)) together. the VPI/VCI termination point with default 0/32 must be created for the O&M connection in OMU or NPS1(P). Steps Further information Example: Configuring IP for BTS O&M using star topology ATM layer This example presents IP for BTS O&M configuration in RNC when star topology ATM layer and dynamic routing (OSPF) is used. you need to create VPI/VCI termination point for O&M connection for dedicated BTS in OMU or NPS1(P). When using star topology. By default. When using tree topology. To support the topology like above figure. The VPI is configured as CBR class. you should make sure that the MTU of IPoA interface between NPS1 and BTS is 1500. You also should have ATM plans available for the tree or star model DCN for O&M. For more information. . Check if the VPI/VCI termination point is already created for the control plane. see Creating ATM resources in RNC in ATM Resource Management. You need to create ATM resources for the Iub interface before starting this procedure. the same VPI termination point is used as the control plane traffic for BTS.
