RXESI : Radio X-Ceiver Administration Managed Object In Service, Initiate


RXESI : MO=mo...;

PARAMETERS
1
MO=mo Managed object instance
See Application Information for block RXCTA for format and value range of this parameter.

FUNCTION
Command RXESI is used to bring managed objects into service from prepost service. Up to 32 managed
objects can be specified. The managed objects must be defined, that is, in state DEF.
The answer printout RADIO X-CEIVER ADMINISTRATION MANAGED OBJECT IN SERVICE COMMAND
RESULT will be printed giving the result of the order for each of the managed object instances specified by
the MO parameter.
The result printout RADIO X-CEIVER ADMINISTRATION MANAGED OBJECT IN SERVICE RESULT will
be printed for each managed object that received an ORDERED command result when the command is
executed.
The order in which the managed objects are brought into service in BTS Logical Model G01 is TG before the
corresponding TRXC, TX and TF; and TRXC before the corresponding TS and RX.
The order in which the managed objects are brought into service in BTS Logical Model G12 is TG before the
corresponding CF; and CF before the corresponding IS, CON, TRXC, TF and DP; and TRXC before the
corresponding RX, TX and TS.
Once a managed object has been brought into service it will initially be manually blocked, that is, in state
COM. An attempt is then made to load the managed object.
The order remains after system restart.

FUNCTION
This command orders the manual deblocking of one or more managed object instances.
Up to 32 managed object instances may be specified in one command.
The answer printout, RADIO X-CEIVER ADMINISTRATION MANUAL DEBLOCKING OF MANAGED
OBJECT COMMAND RESULT, will be printed, giving the result of the deblocking order for each of the
managed object instances specified by the MO parameter.
For each managed object instance that receives an 'ordered' command result, a subsequent result printout,
RADIO X-CEIVER ADMINISTRATION MANUAL DEBLOCKING OF MANAGED OBJECT RESULT, will
be given when the deblocking order is completed.
If this managed object instance was the last manually blocked object in a transceiver group
that was still in service, the observation alarm will be ceased.

Up to 32 managed object instances may be specified in one command.
The answer printout RADIO X-CEIVER ADMINISTRATION MANUAL BLOCKING OF MANAGED
OBJECT COMMAND RESULT will be printed, giving the result of the blocking order for each of the
managed object instances specified by the MO parameter.
For each managed object instance that receives an 'ordered' command result, a subsequent result printout
RADIO X-CEIVER ADMINISTRATION MANUAL BLOCKING OF MANAGED OBJECT RESULT will be
given when the blocking order is completed.
If the FORCE parameter is given, the blocking order will be executed immediately, and the managed object
instance will be taken out of operation. This will result in handover attempts for the traffic channels
associated with each object. If the handover attempts fail this will result in the immediate termination of
traffic associated with each object.
If the FORCE parameter is not given, the blocking order will be handled in the following manner for each of
the specified managed object instances:
MO Class TS: Blocking of the managed object instance will be delayed until traffic it is carrying has
terminated for other reasons. If the managed object instance is carrying a broadcast control channel, the
blocking order will not be accepted.
MO Class RX: The blocking order will fail if the managed object instance in question, is carrying a physical
channel.
MO Classes TX and TF: The blocking order will fail if the managed object instance in question is enabled.
MO Class TRXC: The blocking order will fail if either the TRXC is currently carrying the TGC application
for the Transceiver Group in BTS Logical Model G01, or within BTS Logical Model G12 the TRXC has
subordinate TX objects that are enabled.
MO Class IS, CON and DP: The blocking order is always successful.
MO Class CF: The blocking order will fail if there are any subordinate TS objects that are enabled.
MO Class TG: The blocking order will always fail. The FORCE parameter must be used to block a managed
object instance of class TG.
A successful blocking of a managed object instance will cancel all alarms due to faults in the equipment.
If this object now becomes the first manually blocked object in the transceiver group that is still in service, an
observation alarm will be issued.
The order remains after system restart.

9
TEXT=text Text in a message page
The permitted command characters are determined by the value given for the parameter
MODE in command RLMBI , or by its default value.
If text is entered in MML format, characters permitted are alphanumeric characters and
graphical characters.
Permitted alphanumeric characters are: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J,
K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z
Permitted graphical characters are:
! Exclamation mark
" Quotation mark
# Hash (number sign)
$ Dollar sign

> Greater than sign
? Question mark
@ Commercial "at"
The "space" character is also permitted.
Four additional language specific characters from the GSM character set can also be used.
For more details, see the Application Information for RCSMA .
Each argument must be surrounded by quotation marks, if it contains non-alphanumeric
characters, that is to say characters other than A - Z and 0 - 9.
Quotation marks in the message text are entered twice in the string.
If text is entered in HEX format, the permitted command characters are the ones representing
hexadecimal numbers, that is 0, 1, 2,...9, A, B, C, D, E, F. Each character represents four bits
in an octet of the message. Quotation marks are not needed.

Function
This command defines and changes the message text in a page of a Short Message Service Cell Broadcast
(SMSCB) message.
Text can be entered using the MML character set or it can be entered in hexadecimal mode, allowing the full
GSM character set to be represented.
In hexadecimal mode, when 8-bit encoding scheme is used, the text entered is not broadcast as 4-bit
characters, but as octets (8 bits). That is, the first octet entered in the TEXT parameter is the first octet
received by a mobile station. If a full message page text contains an odd number of hexadecimal characters,
the last character is broadcast as the 4 least significant bits of the last octet.
If the message coding is 7-bit, as specified by command RLMBI , then the text broadcast will only contain a
whole number of GSM characters, that is an exact multiple of 7 bits. Unused text is padded with null
characters which are in fact "carriage return" characters. The last 5 bits of the message text are always set to
zero.
If the message coding is 8-bit, as specified by command RLMBI , then the coding is user-defined. Unused text
is padded with null characters which are "carriage return" characters. If an uneven number of HEX
command characters is specified then the last character is ignored. This character will not be broadcast on
the air-interface and will not be printed when command RLMBP is used to print the message text. Unused
text is padded with null characters which are "carriage return" characters.
10
If LANG is 17 or MCO is 16, as specified by command RLMBI , then the user character is Universal
Multiple- Octet Coded Character. 16-bit encoding scheme is used. If a full message page text does not
contain an even multiple of 4 number of command characters, then the last command characters that do not
form a full 16-bit user character are truncated. Unused text is padded with null characters.
If the text contains more than 41 command characters including delimiting quotations then the argument
must be repeated. The argument may only be entered twice in one command. Each argument is appended
onto the previously given part of the text. If the page text contains more than 82 command characters the
command must be repeated with another package number (PNO). A maximum of 93 MML command
characters or 164 HEX command characters can be entered for a message page. However, if LANG is 17, the
message text shall then be entered starting with two 7-bit default alphabet character representation of the
language encoded according to ISO 639. This is padded to the octet boundary with two bits set to 0 and then
followed by a maximum of 160 HEX command characters (equals to 40 user characters for a message page)
of UCS2-encoded message. If LANG is 16, as given by command RLMBI , 7-bit encoding is used. The
message text shall then be entered starting with two 7-bit default alphabet character representation of the
language encoded according to ISO 639, followed by a carriage return (CR) character. The CR character
can then be followed by 90 7-bit characters of text.If the message coding is 7-bit, as given by command
RLMBI , then the last 5 bits of the 82 octets of the message text are always set to zero by the BSC.
The message is for sending on the Cell Broadcast Channel (CBCH) and its distribution is according to the
time parameters specified in command RLMTI .
PNO=1 interrupts broadcast until PNO=2 is defined.
The order remains after system restart.

Examples
RLMBC:ID=35,CODE=44,GS=1,PAGE=12,TEXT=0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF01
2345671&0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF012345671,PNO=1;
RLMBC:ID=35,CODE=44,GS=1,PAGE=12,TEXT=0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF01
2345671&0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF012345678,PNO=2;

The command sequence defines the message text data. The message identifier is 35. The message
code is 44. The geographical scope of the message is 1. There are 12 pages in this message. The
data is entered in HEX mode. Regarding the order of bits broadcast on the CBCH, in this example
octet "01" is transmitted, then "23", "45", and so on, corresponding in time order to bits 1000 0000
1100 0100 1010 0010, and so on.

RLMBC:ID=78,CODE=300,GS=2,PAGE=2,TEXT="THE ""BROWN"" FOX JUMPED OVER


THE LAZY "&"DOG!";

The command defines the message text data. The message identifier is 78. The message code is 300.
The geographical scope of the message is 2. There are 2 pages in this message. The data is entered
in MML mode. In the example the data occupies part of an SMSCB message and the remaining
unused text is automatically filled with null characters. The text is read as follows: THE "BROWN"
FOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY DOG!

RLMBC:ID=78,CODE=303,GS=2,PAGE=1,TEXT=7A3454095DE56C59;

The command defines the message text data. The message identifier is 78. The message code is 303.
The geographical scope of the message is 2. There is 1 pages in this message. The data is entered in
HEX mode. In the example the data occupies part of an SMSCB message and the remaining unused
text is automatically filled with Carriage Return (CR) characters. If RLMBI is given with LANG=17,
the first four characters in this example, 7A34, are interpreted by the mobile station as the language
code for Chinese characters. The next twelve HEX characters are translated into three Chinese
characters, if the mobile is capable of Chinese character translation. A mobile station not
supporting UCS2 coding will present the two character language identifiers followed by improperly
interpreted user data.

11
RLMBC:ID=78,CODE=330,GS=2,PAGE=1,TEXT=657A03B;

The command defines the message text data. The message identifier is 78. The message code is 330.
The geographical scope of the message is 2. There is 1 pages in this message. The data is entered in
HEX mode. If RLMBI was given with LANG=16, the first three 7-bit characters in this example, are
interpreted by the mobile station as the language code for Estonian followed by a Carriage Return
(CR) character. A Pre-Phase 2+ mobile station will overwrite the start of the message up to the CR
and present only the text.

6 Swedish
7 Danish
8 Portuguese
9 Finnish
10 Norwegian
11 Greek
12 Turkish
13 Hungarian
14 Polish
15 Language unspecified
16
Default alphabet, which is 7-bit alphabet
The message is preceded by language indicator. The first 3 characters of the
message text must be entered as a two-character representation of the
language encoded according to ISO 639, followed by a Carriage Return (CR)
character. The CR character is then followed by 90 7-bit characters of text.
The entry MODE for the text is HEX.
17
Universal Multiple-Octet Coded Character Set 2 (UCS2)
The message is preceded by language indication. The message text must be
starting with a two 7-bit default alphabet character representation of the
language encoded according to ISO 639. This is padded to the octet boundary
with two bits set to 0 and then followed by 40 characters of UCS2-encoded
message text. The entry MODE for the text is HEX.
18 - 63
Reserved values
This range of values is reserved for European languages using the default
alphabet, with unspecified handling at the mobile station.
MCL=mcl Message class

The message class allows the user to route the message to user defined destinations.

0 No message class
1 Class 1, user defined
2 Class 2, user defined
3 Class 3, default meaning: terminal equipment specific
MCO=mco Message coding

The message coding indicates how the text which is entered in command RLMBC is to
be decoded by the mobile station.

14
The message can consist of up to 93 seven-bit characters, if 7-bit coding is used.
These 93 characters fill 651 bits, which is 82 octets with 5 unused bits. The remaining
5 bits are always set to binary zeroes.

The message can consist of up to 82 eight-bit characters, if 8-bit coding is used.

Any unused text is filled with null characters.

The message can consist of up to 41 user-characters (164 HEX-characters), if UCS2-


coding is used.

Any unused text is filled with null characters.

7 7-bit data
8 8-bit data
16 16-bit data, UCS2
MODE=mode Text entry mode

This is the entry mode when defining message text later with command RLMBC .

MML MML format


HEX HEX format
NUMPAGES=numpages Number of pages in message
Numeral 1 ~ 15
UPDATE=update Update number

This parameter allows the operator to give an initial value to the update number for a
message. The update number is automatically updated when the message text is
changed.
Numeral 0 ~ 15

Function

This command defines a Short Message Service Cell Broadcast (SMSCB) message, including the information
which is to be broadcast as a message header. The command also connects cells to a previously defined
message or to a new message.
The message text is defined using the command RLMBC . Messages are broadcast on the Cell Broadcast
Channel (CBCH).
The parameters UPDATE, NUMPAGES, LANG, MCO, MCL, and MODE are defined the first time when
RLMBI is used with a new combination of ID, CODE, and GS. The default values are used, if the parameters
are not specified. Once these parameters have been set then it is not possible to alter them by a subsequent
use of command RLMBI with the same combination of ID, CODE, and GS.
The distribution period and rate for a message concerns all cells connected to it.
It is possible to define up to 96 message pages in a cell. The maximum number of pages in a single message is
15. Thus a cell can for example be connected to 96 single messages, or six 15-pages messages and one 6-
pages message. A cell cannot be connected to a message if there are not enough empty pages in the cell for
all message pages.
When LANG is 16, the parameter MODE defaults to HEX and value MML is not accepted to the parameter
MODE.
When LANG is 17, the parameter MODE defaults to HEX and value MML is not accepted to the parameter
MODE. A mobile station not supporting UCS2 coding will present the two character language identifier
followed by improperly interpreted user data.
When MCO is 16, the parameter MODE defaults to HEX and value MML is not accepted to the parameter
MODE.

15
The translation from the user languages to HEX format according to ISO/IEC 10646-1 should be done before
HEX characters are input in the command.
Different mobile station models might have implemented different ways of interpreting the data coding
scheme sent in the SMSCB message, represented by MCO=16 or LANG=17. Therefore, the definition of
messages using UCS2 encoding can be done in the two ways described above.
The parameters MCO and MCL exclude the parameter LANG.
Default values for the following parameters are permanent exchange data: LANG, MCL, MCO, MODE,
NUMPAGES , UPDATE. Default values are listed in the application information for block RCSCB .
The command is not valid for external cells, that is cells belonging to another Base Station Controller (BSC).
The order remains after system restart.

message. The message is sent on the Cell Broadcast Channel (CBCH) with a specified repetition
rate.
The CBCH load for a cell is the sum of all the individual CBCH loads for broadcasting messages
sent on the CBCH in that cell. The value of the CBCH load is printed by the command RLMTP .
The broadcast times are removed when the message is deleted using command RLMBE .
It is not possible to define a distribution period for a message if there is no cell connected to the
message.
If the distribution period for a message is over, then command RLMTI can be used to define a new
set of distribution times for this message.
In order to change the distribution period, or the repetition rate, the old period and rate must be
deleted by command RLMTE and a new command RLMTI must be specified.
The order remains after system restart.

Function
Format 1
This command format changes data in a cell.
24
If the cell is an internal cell the command is only permitted if the cell state is HALTED.
Note that the parameter AGBLK must be set to 1 or greater when short message service cell broadcast is in
use, that is when the channel CBCH has been defined.
By system default one SDCCH/8 without CBCH is provided in the cell if the BCCH frequency for the cell is
defined and the type of BCCH is non-combined.
The maximum range for the locating parameters MAXTA and TALIM are greater for an extended range cell
than for a normal cell.
When COMB and COMBC are not specified the default is a NCOMB BCCH. COMBC, COMB and NCOMB
all refer to the type of BCCH.
The command RAEPP and the Application Information for block ROEPC can be used to see how many digits
mnc must have.
Parameter NEWNAME is used to change the name of a cell.
If the cell belongs to the current BSC, it may be defined as extended range if the feature extended range cell
is available. The availability of this feature is dependent on commercial agreements.
A cell with subcell structure can only be defined as extended range if the feature extended range cell
(enhanced version) is available. The availability of this feature is dependent on commercial agreements.
If a cell with subcell structure is changed from normal to extended range then the underlaid subcell will have
extended range and the overlaid subcell will have normal range.
A Timeslot Number (TN) value other than 0 or 2 is not valid for an extended range cell.
It is not allowed to define an extended range cell when GPRS support is activated.
If the cell system type is GSM 900, BCCHNO may be defined in the G1-band if the feature Support for
Extended GSM 900 Frequency Band is available and defined in the UIC-band if the feature Support for
Railways GSM 900 Frequency Band is available. The availability of these features is dependent on
commercial agreements.
The frequency bands G1 and UIC cannot be used by GSM Phase 1 mobiles. The BCCH carrier must be
placed in the primary band if Phase 1 mobiles need to be supported by the cell.
The frequency band UIC cannot be used by E-GSM (primary and G1-band) mobiles. The BCCH carrier must
be placed in the primary or G1-band if only E-GSM mobiles should be supported.
For cell system type GSM 900, if the BCCH is defined in an extended band and the range of the Absolute
Radio Frequency Channel Numbers (ARFCNs) in the cell exceeds 112 , the number of ARFCNs is restricted
to 22. A channel group may consist of frequencies from different GSM bands. Changing the BCCHNO
parameter is dependent on other frequencies in channel group 0. If the BCCH is defined in the primary band
other frequencies in channel group 0 are only allowed in the primary band. If the BCCH is defined in the G1-
band other frequencies in channel group 0 are only allowed in the primary and the G1-band.
For cell system type GSM 1800 or GSM 1900 the number of ARFCNs are restricted to 18 if the range of
ARFCNs in the cell exceeds 112.
For details about the parameter default values in permanent exchange data see the Application Information
for block RCCD . The current BTS version may have specific parameter restrictions. See "BTS parameter
limitations" in OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL for current BTS version.
The order remains after system restart.

Format 2
This command format changes the parameter BCCHNO in a cell independent of the cell state.
If the cell system type is GSM 900, BCCHNO may be defined in the G1-band if the feature Support for
Extended GSM 900 Frequency Band is available and defined in the UIC-band if the feature Support for
Railways GSM 900 Frequency Band is available. The availability of these features is dependent on
commercial agreements.
The frequency bands G1 and UIC cannot be used by GSM Phase 1 mobiles. The BCCH carrier must be
placed in the primary band if Phase 1 mobiles need to be supported by the cell.
The frequency band UIC cannot be used by E-GSM (primary and G1-band) mobiles. The BCCH carrier must
be placed in the primary or G1-band if only E-GSM mobiles should be supported.
For cell system type GSM 900, if the BCCH is defined in an extended band and the range of the Absolute
Radio Frequency Channel Numbers (ARFCNs) in the cell exceeds 112 , the number of ARFCNs is restricted
to 22. A channel group may consist of frequencies from different GSM bands. Changing the BCCHNO
parameter is dependent on other frequencies in channel group 0. If the BCCH is defined in the primary band
other frequencies in channel group 0 are only allowed in the primary band. If the BCCH is defined in the G1-
band other frequencies in channel group 0 are only allowed in the primary and the G1-band. If cell state is

25
ACTIVE and GPRS support is active for the cell this applies to all frequencies in the cell and not only to
frequencies in channel group 0.
For cell system type GSM 1800 or GSM 1900 the number of ARFCNs are restricted to 18 if the range of
ARFCNs in the cell exceeds 112.
When the cellstate is ACTIVE and Active BA-List Recording is active for the cell, it is not possible to change
the ARFCN for BCCH.
For details about the parameter default values in permanent exchange data see the Application Information
for block RCCD . The current BTS version may have specific parameter restrictions. See "BTS parameter
limitations" in OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL for current BTS version.
The order remains after system restart.

RLDEE : Radio Control Cell, Definition of Cell, End

RLDEE:CELL=cell;

Parameters
CELL=cell Cell designation. Symbolic name of a defined cell. The symbolic name of a defined cell
must not be given the value ALL.

Function
The command is used to delete an internal or external cell in the BSC. All neighbour relations to the
cell are automatically deleted. If it is an internal cell, that is the cell belongs to the current BSC, the
command is only permitted in cell state HALTED.
The order remains after system restart.

Examples

RLDEE:CELL=HLM1;
The command will delete the existing cell HLM1 in the BSC. All neighbour relations to the cell are
automatically deleted.

RLHPC : Radio Control Cell Connection Of Cell To Channel Allocation Profile, Change
RLHPC:CELL=cell... ,CHAP=chap;

SCTYPE=sctype Subcell type
UL Underlaid subcell.
OL Overlaid subcell.

Function
The command defines channel groups for a cell or subcell. The channel group can then have
absolute Radio Frequency (RF) channels assigned to it. See Operational Instruction BSC, Cell
Configuration Data, Change on how to add RF channels to a channel group. If a subcell structure is
defined, then parameter SCTYPE must be specified in the command. The command is not valid for
external cells. The order remains after system restart.

RLCFI : Radio Control Cell, Configuration Frequency Data, Initiate


RLCFI:CELL=cell[,CHGR=chgr],DCHNO=dchno...
Parameters
CELL=cell Cell designation Symbolic name of a defined cell, maximum 7 characters.
CHGR=chgr Channel group number
The channel group parameter is mandatory if channel groups other than channel group 0
exist for the cell.
Numeral 0 ~ 15
DCHNO=dchno Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number (ARFCN)
Numeral 1 ~ 124 (GSM 900, P-band)
Numeral 0, 975 ~ 1023 (GSM 900, G1-band)
Numeral 955 ~ 974 (GSM 900, UIC-band)
Numeral 512 ~ 810 (GSM 1900)
Numeral 512 ~ 885 (GSM 1800)
Maximum 16 ARFCNs per channel group except channel group 0 which allows only 15
ARFCNs.
In a GSM 900 system, maximum 31 ARFCNs per cell or in some cases maximum 22
ARFCNs (see chapter 2).
In a GSM 1800 or GSM 1900 system, maximum 31 ARFCNs per cell or in some cases
maximum 18 ARFCNs (see chapter 2).

Function
This command adds ARFCNs to an existing ACTIVE or HALTED channel group.
If the cell system type is a GSM 900 system, ARFCNs in the extended G1-band may be defined if the feature
Support for Extended GSM 900 Frequency Band is available. ARFCNs in the extended UIC-band may be
defined if the feature Support for Railways GSM 900 Frequency band is available.
For cell system type GSM 900, if the Broadcast Control Channel (BCCH) is defined in an extended band and
the range of the ARFCNs in the cell exceeds 112, the number of ARFCNs is restricted to 22. A channel group
may consist of frequencies from different GSM 900 bands, adding frequencies in channel group 0 depends on
the band where the BCCH is located in the cell. If the BCCH frequency is defined in the P-band other
ARFCNs are only allowed in the P-band. If the BCCH is defined in the G1-band other ARFCNs are only
allowed in the P-band or the G1-band.
If the cell system type is a GSM 1800 or GSM 1900 system and if the range of ARFCNs in the cell exceeds
112, the number of ARFCNs is restricted to 18 per cell.
Only 15 ARFCNs are allowed in channel group 0. This is because one ARFCN is reserved for the BCCH.
The channel group parameter is mandatory if channel groups other than channel group 0 exist for the cell.
The current Base Transceiver Station (BTS) version may have specific parameter restrictions. See "BTS
parameter limitations" in OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL for current BTS version.
The command is not valid for external cells, which are cells belonging to another Base Station Controller
(BSC).
The order remains after system restart.

Numeral 0, 1, 2, 3 (normal cell)
Numeral 0, 2 (extended range cell)
The current Base Transceiver Station (BTS) version may have specific parameter
restrictions. See "BTS parameter limitations" in OPERATION AND
MAINTENANCE MANUAL for current BTS version.

Function
This command changes SDCCH/8 configuration data in a cell or channel group. The time slotnumber is a
cell level parameter in that all SDCCH/8 in a cell reside on the same timeslot number. The system default is
timeslot number two for both normal and extended range cells.
Parameter CCHPOS can only be used for channel group zero. For other channel groups CCHPOS is always
equal to TN and can not be changed. When parameter CCHPOS is set to BCCH, all SDCCH/8 in channel
group zero will be placed on the BCCH frequency. The first SDCCH/8 will be placed on timeslot number one,
the next will be placed on timeslot number two and so on. For extended range cells, only even timeslot
numbers can be used, starting with timeslot number two. When parameter CCHPOS is set to BCCH , and if
parameter TN is entered, it does not affect the configuration in channel group zero. The maximum number of
SDCCH/8 that can be added to channel group zero is seven for normal cells and three for extended range
cells. By system default one SDCCH/8 without CBCH is provided in the cell if the BCCH frequency for the
cell is definedand the type of BCCH is non-combined. It is possible to have up to 16 SDCCH/8 per cell.
This number is reduced by one if an SDCCH/4 is defined for the cell. The total number of SDCCH/8 in the
cell must not be greater than the number of frequencies in the cell. The number of SDCCH/8 in the channel
group must also not be greater than the number of frequencies in the channel group. This does not apply if
channel group is zero and if parameter CCHPOS is set to BCCH. If the number of required Basic Physical
Channels (BPCs) is not sufficient for the number of SDCCH/8 required, the surplus SDCCH/8 are not
configured. If parameter CBCH is specified then one logical SDCCH in one SDCCH/8 is replaced by a
28
CBCH. CBCH may not be specified for a channel group within the overlaid subcell. It is not possible to
define more than one CBCH per cell including CBCH specified by the command RLDEC. This command
does not remove a CBCH which has been defined for the cell using the command RLDEC.
Note that the parameter AGBLK in command RLDEC shall be set to 1 or greater if CBCH is specified. If
channel groups have been defined for the cell using command RLDGI , then the CHGR parameter is
mandatory when giving parameter SDCCH, CBCH or CCHPOS. CHGR cannot be given with TN when
SDCCH, CBCH and CCHPOS are omitted, as TN always applies to the whole cell. To minimize the
consequence of hardware error in BTS equipment, it is recommended to use timeslot numbers other than
zero. The command is not valid for external cells, which are cells belonging to another BSC. The order
remains after system restart.
