The BSC product family provides the operator with the means to control terrestrial and radio channels. Another important function of the BSC is to have an operation and maintenance interface towards the Nokia NMS. or at a remote location.The BSC in the GSM network 2 The BSC in the GSM network The DX 200 BSC is a modern digital switching product for GSM900/1800/1900 networks. dn9981715 Issue 5-0 en # Nokia Corporation Nokia Proprietary and Confidential 13 (118) . Submultiplexing can then be used between the BSC and TCSM2 to reduce transmission costs. The BSC can be located flexibly in the GSM900/1800/1900 network. while the Transcoder Submultiplexer (TCSM2) is installed at the MSC site. which can be co-located with the MSC. on the same site with one of the Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) it controls. They also control signalling to the BTS. It can be installed as stand-alone. The figure below shows an overview of the GSM900/1800/1900 network and the position of the BSC and the associated TCSM2 in the network. The most common solution is to locate the BSC separately from the MSC near the BTSs it controls.

The sharing of resources and a very fast method of reserving radio channels makes the use of the air interface more efficient than before. Some optional external devices may be added to the network when needed. Overview of the GPRS core network dn9981715 Issue 5-0 en # Nokia Corporation Nokia Proprietary and Confidential 17 (118) .

MCMU and BCSU) and a new CPU unit. the PCU is needed for converting the data coming from the BTSs from TRAU frame format (Abis) to Frame Relay packets (Gb) prior to transmission to the GPRS network. Second PCU for GPRS/EDGE option The S10 release includes second PCU for GPRS/EDGE option for the BSC2i and BSC2. The interface used between the SGSN and GGSN depends on the type of the data network accessed. however. to be implemented into the MCMU units. Serving Mobile Location Center (SMLC) implements location calculation for the BSC. the PCU plug-in unit requires the extended GSWB (with the 3rd SW64 plug-in unit). Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) provides a new Enhanced GPRS (EGPRS) feature. The PCU is used for handling the GPRS functions in the BSC. EGPRS is used for higher data rates than the current GPRS configuration offers to further increase the packet processing capacity. and vice versa. This allows a GMS subscriber and/or valid mobile equipment to be positioned with MS Location Services. The GPRS communicates on one hand with other network elements in the GSM900/1800/1900 system and on the other hand with equipment in the Packet Data Network using standard interfaces. No other hardware changes. The SMLC option requires MBIF-UA plug-in units in all computer units (the OMU. are required in the BSCs.

The implementation of the second PCU requires a GSWB extension from 192 to 256 PCMs. SMLC option The S10 release also includes SMLC option. In other words. The new hardware configuration can be implemented in a BSC which already has the S9 level GPRS PCUs by adding second PCU (or PCU-S) plug-in unit to every BCSU unit. 18 (118) # Nokia Corporation Nokia Proprietary and Confidential dn9981715 Issue 5-0 en .Engineering for BSC To function properly.

Releases S9 and S10

6.3

S10.5 release
S10.5 basic upgrade

Due to new functionalities, memory requirement is increased to 128 Mbytes in OMU and MCMU functional units in all BSCs. The OMU and MCMU units are therefore equipped with additional memory modules - unless the CP6MX CPU has been installed earlier (at S10 level).
S10.5 first delivery

The S10.5 release first deliveries include the BSC2i only and the most important new hardware feature in the release is the reservation of future LAN connections which includes the following items:
.

two 24-port LAN panels in both rack types (BCBE and BCEE) instead of the top plate CNI-type LAN cables to be used as internal cables between CPLAN-S panel and the LAN port in the front panel of the CPU or PCU plug-in unit (and later also as external cables between the CPLAN-S and an external LAN switch or router).

.

In addition, the CP6MX CPU and PCU-T plug-in units are standard in the S10.5 release first deliveries. The PCU-Ts are equipped in the BCSU functional units instead of the earlier PCU and PCU-S plug-in units.

Functional unit and cartridge descriptions for BSC
In principle, the BSCE and BSCi consists of the same functional units as the BSC2 and BSC2i. The only difference is the following: since the original ET1C cartridges (that accept only ET1E plug-in units) are not replaced by ET5C cartridges, there must be an AFS-T plug-in unit in the BCSU to control the ET1E plug-in units. Both the S9 and S10 release cause changes in some or all of the following functional units:
.

BCSU ET MCMU OMU

.

.

.

For a more general introduction to the Engineering for the BSC, see the Overview for the Engineering of the BSC .

7.1

BCSU, Base Station Controller Signalling Unit
The hardware of the BCSU is housed in a MC1C cartridge. The basic configuration of the BCSU is shown the figures below. The dimensions of a MC1C cartridge are (height x width x depth): 262 mm x 240 mm x 240 mm; or 10.3 in x 9.45 in x 9.45 in. The dimensions of the plug-in units are (height x depth): 233.4 mm x 160 mm; or 9.19 in x 6.3 in.

Purpose:

The BCSU handles those functions of the BSC which are highly dependent on the amount of traffic. It controls the signalling and traffic on both A-interface and Abis-interface and provides access to the GPRS core network - optional feature.

X.25 connection and the PAD (Packet Assembly/ Disassembly.09.29) protocol over the X. X. the network element's local commands are given from a remote site. The management protocol stack in the BSS follows the principles described in the GSM Recommendations 12. The network management applications in the BSS and in the Nokia NMS use the File Transfer Access Method (FTAM) for file transfer.e. see the Overerview for the Engineering of BSC .01 and 08. which is taken into use when the connection through the main time slot is disrupted.25 connections is used for the remote terminal. Remote terminal sessions can be established from the Nokia NMS to the DX 200 network elements (BSC. 118 (118) # Nokia Corporation Nokia Proprietary and Confidential dn9981715 Issue 5-0 en . The operation and maintenance network is connected to the time slots of the PCM circuit by means of the signalling interface adapter (AS7). TCSM2 MSC). The Common Management Information Protocol (CMIP) is used for other network management purposes. a spare time slot can also be allocated for the operation and maintenance connections. Interface to the switching subsystem The interface between the Nokia NMS and the switching subsystem (MSC/VLR and HLR/AC/EIR) uses the X. The protocol stack is implemented in the Nokia NMS for communication between the Nokia NMS and the network elements. The switching subsystem is controlled from the NMS with a remote MML via the PAD. i. Some applications use a remote MMI.25. For a more general introduction to the Engineering for BSC.
