In the connected BBUs shown in Figure 2-2, BBU 0 and BBU 1 are the root BBU and leaf BBU,
respectively. You can identify whether a BBU serves as the root BBU or leaf BBU by using the
following methods:
l In the UCIU+UMPT interconnection, the BBU configured with a UCIU is the root BBU.
l In the UMPT+UMPT interconnection, the BBU at the end with the Master color-coding
on the BBU interconnection signal cable is the root BBU. Fiber optic cables cannot connect
BBUs in this interconnection method.
The root BBU and leaf BBU are determined in the site hardware planning.
A BBU interconnection signal cable is logically called CTRLLNK for an eGBTS, a NodeB or
an eNodeB and is logically called BTSCTRLLNK for a GBTS. By default, BBU 1 is the local
node and BBU 0 is the upper-level node of a CTRLLNK or BTSCTRLLNK.
In UCIU+UMPT interconnection, SingleRAN9.0 supports a maximum of two CTRLLNKs for
a NodeB or an eNodeB and two BTSCTRLLNKs for a GBTS.
In UMPT+UMPT interconnection, SingleRAN9.0 supports only one CTRLLNK for an eGBTS,
a NodeB or an eNodeB and one BTSCTRLLNK for a GBTS.

BBU Interconnection Feature Parameter Description 2 Overview

2.2.5 Supported Features and Functions


In a triple-mode base station, two BBUs are connected using a BBU interconnection signal cable.
The BBUs exchange control data, transmission data, and clock signals. Therefore, the BBUs
support common transmission (co-transmission), inter-BBU software-defined radio (SDR), and
a common clock.

Supported Features
l Co-Transmission

When two BBUs are interconnected, the BBUs support co-transmission between two or more
modes. For details, see Common Transmission Feature Parameter Description.

l Common Clock

When two BBUs are interconnected, the BBUs support a common clock between two or more
modes. For details, see Common Clock Feature Parameter Description.

l Inter-BBU SDR

In inter-BBU SDR, a multimode RF module is connected to both BBUs. Figure 2-3 shows an
example of inter-BBU SDR in which BBU 0 supports GSM and BBU 1 supports LTE. The RXU
(GL) is connected to both BBU 0 and BBU 1.

Figure 2-3 Inter-BBU SDR

NOTE

RXU refers to RRU and RFU.

Inter-BBU SDR clock signals for the secondary BBU must be synchronized with those for the
primary BBU. The clock signal synchronization mode is selected according to the following
rules:

l If the primary BBU uses frequency synchronization, the secondary BBU must use
frequency synchronization.
l If the primary BBU uses time synchronization, the secondary BBU can use either time or
frequency synchronization.

BBU Interconnection Feature Parameter Description 2 Overview

2.3.1 Cable Connections


In a triple-mode base station using BBU Interconnection, the WBBPf boards or UBBPd boards
in the BBUs can be interconnected to exchange baseband data.

Figure 2-4 shows the inter-BBU cable connections for UMTS baseband capacity expansion.

Figure 2-4 Inter-BBU cable connections for UMTS baseband capacity expansion

A UMTS baseband board and a UMTS main control board are installed in both BBU 0 and BBU
1, and the two UMTS baseband boards are interconnected using a BBU interconnection signal
cable. Among UMTS baseband boards, WBBPf boards and UBBPd boards can provide HEI
ports for UMTS baseband interconnection. A WBBPf board or UBBPd board can be installed
only in slot 2 or slot 3 (preferred) in either BBU.

A BBU interconnection signal cable between WBBPf boards transmits baseband data and
expands baseband resources. A BBU interconnection signal cable between WBBPf boards
cannot be used interchangeably with that for UCIU+UMPT or UMPT+UMPT interconnection.

A BBU baseband interconnection signal cable is logically called BBPLNK. Either end of a
BBPLNK can be configured as the link head. It is recommended that you configure the end on
the BBU 0 side as the link head. SRAN9.0 supports only one BBPLNK.

5.3.2 Subracks and Hardware Configurations for the BBUs


For the installation locations and hardware configurations of BBU 0 and BBU 1 in each cabinet
when a new multimode base station is deployed, see 3900 Series Base Station Hardware
Description.

In UCIU+UMPT interconnection, the UCIU is controlled by only one single-mode main control
board. Otherwise, ALM-26274 Inter-System Board Object Configuration Conflict is reported.
UCIU-related alarms are reported only to the single-mode main control board controlling the
UCIU.

When deploying a new Multimode base station, you are advised to comply with the following
rules to set the control mode for the UCIU:

l In UMTS baseband capacity expansion scenarios, UMTS is preferred to control the UCIU.
l In other scenarios, the mode priority descends from GSM, to UMTS, and then to LTE.
l In capacity expansion scenarios, it is recommended that the controlling mode of the UCIU
remain unchanged. Alternatively, you can modify the controlling mode based on
information provided in Table 5-2.

Table 5-2 lists the mode recommended for controlling the UCIU in each scenario.

During new Multimode base station deployment, the mode deployment order remains unchanged
no matter whether the mode controlling the UCIU is first deployed. However, it is recommended
that the mode controlling the UCIU be first deployed. By doing this, UCIU-related alarms can
be reported in time.

5.3.3 Transmission Modes


With BBU Interconnection, a base station supports the following:

l Independent transmission
l Inter-BBU co-transmission

Issue 01 (2014-04-30) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 14


Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
SingleRAN
BBU Interconnection Feature Parameter Description 5 Engineering Guidelines

Independent Transmission
In a triple-mode base station deployment scenario, each mode is connected to the transport
network through its own port and is deployed in the same way as that in a single-mode base
station.

In UMTS baseband capacity expansion scenarios, both BBUs have a UMTS main control board,
it is recommended that BBU 0 be connected to the RNC.

Inter-BBU Co-Transmission
For engineering guidelines about co-transmission, see Common Transmission Feature
Parameter Description. A multimode base station supports the following co-transmission modes
to implement inter-BBU co-transmission:

l UMPT-based co-transmission through backplane interconnection


All modes except the one controlling the UMPT send their data to the UMPT through BBU
backplanes and BBU interconnection signal cables. The co-transmission port on the UMPT
is connected to the transport network, and the link between the port and transport network
carries data of all the modes in the multimode base station.
When deploying a multimode base station, first deploy the mode controlling the UMPT.
Otherwise, other modes cannot be deployed.
l UTRPc-based co-transmission through backplane interconnection
All modes send their data to the UTRPc through BBU backplanes and BBU interconnection
signal cables. The co-transmission port on the UTRPc is connected to the transport network,
and the link between the port and transport network carries data of all the modes in the
multimode base station.
When deploying a multimode base station, first deploy the mode controlling the UTRPc.
Otherwise, other modes cannot be deployed.

In new multimode base station deployment scenarios, the UTRPc has the following
configuration restrictions:

l The UTRPc can be controlled by only one mode whose main control board is installed in
the same BBU as the UTRPc.
l When deploying a new multimode base station, it is recommended that you deploy the
control mode of a UTRPc following a priority descending from LTE, to UMTS, and then
to GSM. By default, the UTRPc is controlled by UMTS before delivery.

Table 5-3 lists the mode recommended for controlling the UTRPc and the related mode
deployment order when an Multimode base station works in different modes.

5.3.5 Clocks
With BBU Interconnection, a base station uses one of the following clocks:
l Independent reference clock
l Common reference clock

Independent Reference Clock


In triple-mode base station deployment scenarios, the reference clock for each mode is the same
as that in a single-mode base station.
WBBPfIn UMTS baseband capacity expansion scenarios, both BBU 0 and BBU 1 have a
WBBPf. The reference clock can be configured in either BBU.

Common Reference Clock


The common reference clock can be configured in either BBU 0 or BBU 1. The BBU configured
with the common reference clock shares control data and clock signals with the other BBU
through a BBU interconnection signal cable and the BBU backplane.
For engineering guidelines about the common reference clock, see Common Reference Clock
Parameter Description.

5.4 Feature Deployment

5.4.1 Deployment Requirements


None.

5.4.2 Data Preparation


Upgrade to Triple-Mode Base Stations
Perform the following steps to plan the data:

Step 1 Designate BBU0 and BBU1. Plan the cabinet number and subrack number for each BBU.
If BBU0 and BBU1 are configured in the same cabinet, their subrack numbers must be different.
If they are configured in different cabinets, their subrack numbers can be the same.
Step 2 Plan the control links.

----End
The control link is logically CTRLLNK for NodeB or eNodeB, and BTSCTRLLNK for GBTS.
Physically, the control link is the BBU interconnection signal cable between the UCIU and
UMPT.

BBU Interconnection Feature Parameter Description 5 Engineering Guidelines

The two ends of each CTRLLNK/BTSCTRLLNK must be designated. By default, BBU1 is the
local node and BBU0 is the upper-level node. The number of each CTRLLNK/BTSCTRLLNK
for the base station must be unique. The link numbers of all the CTRLLNKs/BTSCTRLLNKs
need to be planned.

A CTRLLNK/BTSCTRLLNK needs to be added for each mode of the base station.

Step 2 Plan the control links. For details, see 2.2 Upgrade to Triple-Mode Base Stations.

Step 3 Plan the baseband processing link.

----End

The baseband processing link is logically BBPLNK. Physically, the baseband processing link
is the BBU interconnection signal cable between WBBPf boards.

The two ends of the BBPLNK must be designated. Either end of a BBPLNK can be configured
as the link head. It is recommended that you configure the end on the BBU 0 side as the link
head. The default port number of the link head or tail is 6.

The number of the BBPLNK needs to be planned. Only one BBPLNK is supported in

5.4.4 Activation Observation


After the initial configuration is complete, you can observe the status of CTRLLNK/
BTSCTRLLNK at either the local or remote end. For alarms related to BBU Interconnection,
see section "5.7 Troubleshooting."

At the Local End


Step 1 Check the status of the Mx indicator on the UCIU or the status of the CI indicator on the UMPT
to determine whether CTRLLNK/BTSCTRLLNK is operating correctly.
l If the Mx indicator is green, CTRLLNK/BTSCTRLLNK is operating correctly.
l If the CI indicator is green, CTRLLNK/BTSCTRLLNK is operating correctly.

Step 2 Check the status of the HEI indicator on the WBBPf to determine whether BBPLNK is operating
correctly.

If the HEI indicator is green, BBPLNK is operating correctly.

----End

NOTE

Mx can be the M0, M1, M2, M3, or M4 port on the UCIU.

At the Remote End


l On the M2000 device panel, you can query the master/slave indication of the BBU
interconnection cable to check whether the cable is correctly connected. The yellow end is
the master port.
l On the M2000 maintenance console or the LMT, you can run the LST CTRLLNK/
BTSCTRLLNK command to query the cabinet number, subrack number, slot number, and
port number at both ends of the BBU interconnection signal cable.
NOTE

The two BBUs are classified into main subrack and extension subrack. If the subrack number of one end
of the BBU interconnection signal cable is 0, the mode at this end is deployed in the main subrack. If the
subrack number of this end is 1, the BBU at the other end is the main subrack.
l Run the MML command DSP CTRLLNKSTAT/BTSCTRLLNKSTAT to check
whether CTRLLNK/BTSCTRLLNK is operating correctly.
l Run the MML command DSP BBPLNK command to check whether BBPLNK is
configured as planned.
