1.1 Maintenance Category


According to the daily maintenance, the maintenance can be classified into four
categories: routine maintenance, notice processing, alarm processing, and common
problem processing.

Routine Maintenance
Routine maintenance is the periodical maintenance. It is to check the equipment running
state periodically. The problem detected during the check should be handled in time. Thus,
the hidden problem can be discovered and prevented, and the problem can be discovered
and handled promptly.

Notice Processing
Notice processing is to analyze various notices during the system running, judge whether
anomaly exists, and handle accordingly.

Alarm Processing
Alarm processing is to analyze various alarms during the system running, judge whether
the system runs normally, and handle accordingly.

Common Problem Processing


Common problem processing is to analyze and handle the detected problem.

1.2 Common Maintenance Methods


This topic describes the most common maintenance methods. During the actual
equipment maintenance, you need to combine various methods.

ZXSDR B8200 L200 Maintenance Guide

Fault Symptom Analysis


Generally, the wireless network equipment consists of several equipment entities. The
symptom varies with the fault that occurs on different entity. When you discover a fault
or receive a fault report, you can analyze the fault symptom, judge the fault on which
equipment entity causes this symptom. Thus, you can focus on checking the faulty
equipment entity.
In case of a sudden fault, it is especially important to analyze the fault symptom. Only
after analyzing the fault symptom carefully, can you locate the faulty equipment entity
precisely. It helps avoid performing incorrect operation on the equipment that runs normal,
and shorten the time to rectify the fault.

Alarm and Log Analysis


The eNodeB system can record errors that occur during the equipment running and
important running parameters. The errors and important running parameters are mainly
recorded in the log record file (including the operation log and system log) and the alarm
database of NetNumen server.
The functions of alarm management are:

l Checking the running states of the eNodeB system, NetNumen server node and
database, and external power.
l Collecting the fault and anomaly information generated during the running
l Presenting the information in the form of text, figure, voice, and light.
These functions help you learn the information in time and handle accordingly to ensure
the normal and reliable running of the eNodeB system.
In addition, the alarm information is recorded in the database for later reference and
analysis. You can check the operation log and system log through the log management
system. The log can be filtered according to your filtering criteria and displayed in the
time sequence order or in the inverted time sequence order. Thus, you can conveniently
check useful log information.

The alarm and log analysis helps analyze the cause of the fault and detect the hidden
problem of the system.

Signaling Tracing Analysis


The signaling tracing tool provided by the system helps analyze and locate the fault
effectively. According to the signaling tracing, you can learn whether the signaling flow is
correct, whether all messages in the signaling flow are correct, and whether all parameters
in the message are correct. Through the analysis, you can find the cause of the fault.

Instrument and Meter Test Analysis


Instrument and meter test is one of the most common methods used to locate faults.
Through the instrument and meter test, you can test the system running indexes and

Chapter 1 Overview

environment indexes, compare the test results with the indexes in the normal state, and
analyze the cause of the difference.

Comparison and Replacement


Replace the part that may be faulty with a normal part. If the fault is rectified after the
replacement, the fault is located.
This method is simple and practical. In addition, you can compare whether the states,
parameter and log files, and parameter settings of the same parts are the same. You can
implement the modification test to rectify the fault during the safe time.

Warning!
Perform this method during the safe time (00:00–04:00 in non-holidays is recommended).
Avoid the operation during the peak service hours and holidays.

1.3 Precautions
During the daily maintenance, pay attention to the following precautions:
1. Ensure that the equipment room is of normal temperature, clean, duct-proof and
moisture-proof. Prevent the rodent from entering the equipment room.
2. Ensure that the primary power supply of the system is stable and reliable. Check
the grounding and lightning protection grounding of the system regularly. Especially
before thunderstorm season and after thunderstorm, check the lightning protection
system and ensure that the facilities are normal.
3. Set up a sophisticated maintenance system to normalize the daily work of the service
personnel. Produce a detailed duty log. Record the daily running status, version, data
update, upgrade, and problem handling of the system in details to help the problem
analysis and handling. Produce a hand-over record to clarify the responsibility.
4. Do not play games and surf the Internet on the PC terminal. Do not install , run and
copy any software not related with the system on the PC terminal. Do not abuse the
PC terminal.
5. Set the NetNumen password according to the user levels, manage it strictly, change it
regularly, and keep it open only to the service personnel.
6. The service personnel should receive the induction training to learn certain equipment
and network knowledge. Perform the maintenance operation according to the
description in the related equipment manual. Wear the antistatic wrist strap before
touching the equipment to prevent the accident due to the man-made factor.
7. Do not blindly reset the equipment, load data or change data. Do not change the EMS
database data at random. Back up the data before changing the data. After changing
the data, confirm that the equipment runs normally in a certain period of time (generally
a week) before deleting the backup data. Record the change in time when changing
the data.

ZXSDR B8200 L200 Maintenance Guide

8. Prepare the following common instruments and meters: flathead screwdriver, cross
screwdriver, signaling analyzer, network cable pliers, multimeter, AC power for
maintenance, telephone line, and network cable. Test the meters regularly to ensure
the accuracy.
9. Check the spare parts and accessories regularly to ensure that they are in stock and
complete. Prevent them from being affected with damp and going mouldy. Store the
spare parts and accessories and the replaced parts and accessories separately, and
label them. Replenish the common spare parts and accessories in time when they are
used up.
10. Store the software and documentation that may be used during the maintenance in
the specified place. Thus, you can easily obtain them when necessary.
11. Lighting in the equipment room should meet the maintenance requirement. Repair the
broken light in time.
12. Handle the detected problem in time. In the case of the problem that cannot be
handled, contact the local ZTE branch office.
13. Place the contact information of the local ZTE branch office at a handy place and
inform all the service personnel to ensure a timely contact when necessary. Update
the contact list regularly.

Danger!
Checking and adjusting the power should be performed by professionals. Otherwise,
casualty and equipment failure may occur.

Warning!
Before changing and synchronizing data, obtain permission of the person in charge.
Otherwise, changing data at random may cause catastrophic failure.
