Boot Memory Parameters


Section JA210 Verifying and Setting Boot Memory Parameters GENERAL
Section Description This section describes procedures for verifying and setting the BTS, CSU/ATM and the Backplane Serial Number and MAC Address backplane parameters. Note: Customers with the Maintenance Only version of RMT do not have access to these parameters. Boot Memory Parameters are verified and set using the Remote Maintenance Tool (RMT). It is assumed that the cell equipment has already been integrated and is in-service, meaning the backplane parameter programming was completed at the time of cell integration and commissioning. The procedures specified herein are to be performed if problems occur during the operation of the cell equipment or when updates need to be made to the existing BMP. Backplane parameters can be reviewed with the cell site either on-line or off-line via the RMT connection. It is highly recommended that whenever changes or updates are made to the backplane parameters that the cell is removed from service. Note: When creating or modifying .xml files always save a copy of the original file to the appropriate directory folder on your computer.

Unit Type Descriptor Backplane Parameters


Section JA310 - Verifying and Setting the Unit Type Descriptor GENERAL
Section Description This section describes procedures for verifying and setting the Unit Type Descriptor (UTD) for the following platforms: HD 4.0 HD 4.0 Dual-Band HD 4.0B Growth 1 Base Station 8440-D/HD/M4 Modcell 4.0/4.0B Compact 4.0/4.0B Base Station 2400 Base Station 4400 Base Station 8401 Base Station 8420

The UTDs are verified and set using the Remote Maintenance Tool (RMT). It is assumed that the cell equipment has already been integrated and is in-service, meaning the backplane parameter programming was completed at the time of cell integration and commissioning. The procedures specified herein are to be performed if problems occur during the operation of the cell equipment or when updates need to be made to the existing UTD. The UTD parameters can be reviewed with the cell site either on-line or off-line via the RMT connection. It is highly recommended that whenever changes or updates are made to the backplane parameters that the cell is removed from service. Note: When creating or modifying .xml files always save a copy of the file to the appropriate directory folder on your computer. Configuration Aid Document (CA 100) The procedures outlined in this section are supported with the .xml files packaged in the Configuration Aid (CA 100) document. The CA 100 document is available through the AlcatelLucent Customer Information Center (CIC) see CONFIGURATION AID (CA100) INSTALLATION on page 14 for information on accessing and loading this document. The CA 100 document includes: The various cell configurations, Configuration overview, Schematics, Backplane programming information, Applicable RF power calibration sections, and Packaged XML files.

Section Description This section describes procedures for verifying and setting the BTS Primary RF Path Map backplane parameters for the following platforms: HD 4.0 HD 4.0 Dual-Band HD 4.0B Growth 1 Base Station 8440-D Base Station 8440-HD Base Station 8440-M4 Modcell 4.0/4.0B Compact 4.0/4.0B Base Station 2400 Base Station 4400 Base Station 8401 Base Station 8420 850MHz Compact RU/BU 450MHz Standard Compact 450MHz Compact RU/BU

The BTS Primary RF Path Map is verified and set using the Remote Maintenance Tool (RMT). It is assumed that the cell equipment has already been integrated and is in-service, meaning the RF Path Map was properly configured at the time of integration. The procedures specified herein are to be performed if problems occur during the operation of the cell equipment or when updates need to be made to the existing RF Path Map. The BTS Primary RF Path Map parameters can be reviewed either on-line or off-line via the RMT connection. It is highly recommended that whenever changes or updates are made to the backplane parameters that the cell is removed from service.

Note: When creating or modifying .xml files always save a copy of the file to the appropriate directory folder on your computer.

MCR vs. UCR

The instructions in this section apply to both UCRs (5MHz radio) and MCRs (15 MHz radio). The term Radio used throughout this section refers to both UCR and MCR.

HD BTS PRIMARY RF PATH MAP CONFIGURATION


Section Description This section describes the procedures to verify and update the BTS Primary RF Path Map on the following products: High Density (HD) 4.0 or High Density (HD) 4.0B connected to: o S2 LAF frame o Pre-R29 BS 8440-A frame (MCPA) (without filters) Pre-R29 8440-A (without filters) configurations are defined as configurations where the S2 LAF frame has been replaced with an 8440-A frame but the digital shelf has not been reconfigured to support the R29 interface between the digital shelf and the 8440-A frame. o Pre-R29 BS 8440-A frame (MCPA) (with filters) Pre-R29 8440-A (with filters) configurations are defined as configurations where the S2 LAF and AIF frames have been replaced with an 8440-A frame with filters but the digital shelf has not been reconfigured to support the R29 interface between the digital shelf and the 8440-A frame. Pre-R29 Cell Generic Note: Pre-R29 configurations can operate on R29 and later cell generics but are not considered R29 8440 configurations until the lineup has been reconfigured to support the R29 interface between the digital shelf and the 8440-A frame. Updating the BTS Primary RF Path Map requires the use of the Remote Maintenance Tool (RMT). The procedures specified herein are to be performed if: Updates are needed to the existing backplane parameters (i.e. during carrier growth, or pre R29 8440-A installation, or radio growth scenarios); Problems occur during the integration process of the cell equipment. Do Not Use This Section for R29 8440 Configurations This section cannot be used to update the BTS Primary RF Path Map on R29 8440 configurations. Go to 8440 BTS PRIMARY RF PATH MAP CONFIGURATION on page 189 to program the BTS Primary RF Path Map for these configurations: R29 8440 Configurations are defined as lineups that support the R29 interface between the digital shelf and the 8440-A frame. R29 8440 Configurations include the following lineups: o 8440-D o 8440-HD o 8440-M4 BTS Primary RF Path Maps are set in the factory based on the cabinet configuration and equipage. If problems are experienced during the integration efforts related to the BTS RF Primary Path Map and/or when field changes are made to the cabinet, use the following procedures to update the path map information. This section gives instructions for populating each field of the BTS Primary RF Path Map. The procedures outlined in this section are supported with the .xml files packaged in the Configuration Aid (CA 100) document.

Test Equipment Information The following provides test equipment information that pertains to the HD 4.0/4.0B configurations.

TDU Numbering

Currently a frame with UCRs (5 MHz Radio) can be equipped with the TDU 1 and TDU 2. TDU 1 is used for antenna tests while TDU 2 is used for Closed Loop Gain Control (CLGC). RMT does not reference TDU in the same manner as ECP Database translations. See the table below. This Handbook section follows the RMT convention and refers to the TDU in a frame as TDU 1 or TDU 2. Frame Primary RMT Reference 1 2 Growth #1 Database Translation Reference 1 2 Function Antenna Test CLGC

Not Applicable. TDU is not support in an HD Growth 1 frame.

TDU Connections

TDU 1 connects to the J2 & J3 ports for Duplex and Triplex filters. TDU 2 connects to the external coupler on the J8 or J9 port of the Duplex and Triplex filters.

MCR Connections

For the HD RF paths, the MCR connects to a Dual Duplex Filter (MCRs transmitting through a Modcell 3.0 Filter is not supported). The MCR supports both Antenna Test and Closed Loop Gain Control (CLGC). The following ports on the MCR are used for these functions: MCR Port RC1 RC2 TONE Dual Duplex Filter Connection J11 J31 J41 Function CLGC (for Tx1 port) CLGC (for Tx2 port) Antenna Test

NOTE: The MCR can also connect to the HD Combiner Attenuator Unit (CAU). In this case, the MCR is transmitting through the SII LAC or pre-R29 BS 8440A (MCPA). CLGC is not supported for MCRs connected to a CAU and Antenna Tests are executed by the SII RTU (if equipped).

Test Equipment Information TDU Numbering The following provides test equipment information that pertains to the various Modcell configurations. A frame can be equipped with the two TDUs (TDU 1 and TDU 2). TDU 1 is used for antenna tests while TDU 2 is used for Closed Loop Gain Control (CLGC). RMT does not reference TDUs in the same manner as ECP Database translations. See the table below. This Handbook section follows the RMT convention and refers to the TDUs in a frame as TDU 1 or TDU 2. Frame Primary RMT Reference 1 2 Growth #1 1 2 Growth #2 1 2 Growth #3 Database Translation Reference 1 2 5 6 9 10 Function Antenna Test CLGC Antenna Test CLGC Antenna Test CLGC

Not Applicable. TDUs are not support in a Growth #3 frame.

TDU Connections

TDU 1 connects to the J2 & J3 ports for Duplex and Triplex filters, or to the J41 port for Dual Duplex filters. TDU 2 connects to the external coupler on the filter for Duplex and Triplex filters, or to the J11 & J31 ports for Dual Duplex filters.

MCR Connections

For Flexent RF paths, the MCR connects to a Dual Duplex Filter (See Exception below). The MCR supports both Antenna Test and Closed Loop Gain Control (CLGC). The following ports on the MCR are used for these functions: MCR Port RC1 RC2 TONE Dual Duplex Filter Connection J11 J31 J41 Function CLGC (for Tx1 port) CLGC (for Tx2 port) Antenna Test

Exception: Note the following configuration: Legacy Modcell Primary frame with Modcell 4.0 Growth 1 (supporting 8 850 B-band Carriers) In this configuration, radios 4, 5 and 6 can optionally be MCRs which connect to Modcell 3.0 Filters in the Legacy Primary frame. The MCR in this configuration does not support Antenna Test and CLGC and the RC1, RC2 and TONE ports are not used.

IBS COMPACT 4.0 TARGET POWER OFFSET


TX1/TX2 Targ Pwr Offset Fields This Appendix describes the applications where the TX1 Targ Pwr Offset and TX2 Targ Pwr Offset BTS Primary RF Path Map fields are non-zero. In almost all applications these fields should be 0. However there are a few In-Building Low Power applications of the Compact 4.0 where these fields must be non-zero. CAUTION: These fields are set in the factory and should not be changed unless it is certain that they must be changed due to reconfiguration, etc.

Compact 4.0 Configuration Overview

The many different configurations of the Compact 4.0 can be grouped into three categories: Standard Configuration, In-Building System (IBS), and Hot Spot. IBS configurations are typically used for in-building low power per carrier applications. IBS configurations do not have receive diversity. IBS cells only use one RF output port. IBS cells use Max Power and CBR Attenuation values that do not reflect the actual output power at the antenna connector. For example, cells not equipped with amplifiers are IBS cells. Inbuilding cells typically have splitters and combiners. Just because a cell is located indoors that does not make it an IBS configuration. Cells that are configured for a Hot Spot application are typically multi carrier low output power per carrier cells. Hot Spot cells do have receive diversity. Hot Spot configurations have an RF output power of 5W per carrier for 850 cells. For Hot Spot cells the TX1 Targ Pwr Offset and TX2 Targ Pwr Offset BTS Primary RF Path Map fields are 0.0. Any Compact that is not configured for IBS or Hot Spot applications is considered a Standard Configuration. All Standard Configuration Compact 4.0 cells must have the TX1 Targ Pwr Offset and TX2 Targ Pwr Offset BTS Primary RF Path Map fields set to 0.0.

TX1/TX2 Targ Pwr Offset

See the table below for possible values of the TX1 and TX2 Targ Pwr Offset.

Output Power per Carrier / Bandclass 5 Watts / Cellular 2.5 dBm / Cellular This configuration has no amplifiers and does not have a combiner or a splitter and is for 1-3 carrier cells -1 dBm / Cellular This configuration has no amplifiers and is equipped with a 2:1 combiner and a 1:2 splitter and is for 4-6 carrier cells -3dBm / Cellular This configuration has no amplifiers and is equipped with a 3:1 combiner and a 1:3 splitter and is for 7 carrier cells

Test Equipment Information The following provides test equipment information that pertains to the HD 4.0/4.0B configurations.

TDU Numbering

Currently a frame with UCRs (5 MHz Radio) can be equipped with the TDU 1 and TDU 2. TDU 1 is used for antenna tests while TDU 2 is used for Closed Loop Gain Control (CLGC). RMT does not reference TDU in the same manner as ECP Database translations. See the table below. This Handbook section follows the RMT convention and refers to the TDU in a frame as TDU 1 or TDU 2. Frame Primary RMT Reference 1 2 Growth #1 Database Translation Reference 1 2 Function Antenna Test CLGC

Not Applicable. TDU is not support in an HD Growth 1 frame.

TDU Connections

TDU 1 connects to the J2 & J3 ports for Duplex and Triplex filters. TDU 2 connects to the external coupler on the J8 or J9 port of the Duplex and Triplex filters.

MCR Connections

For the HD RF paths, the MCR connects to a Dual Duplex Filter (MCRs transmitting through a Modcell 3.0 Filter is not supported). The MCR supports both Antenna Test and Closed Loop Gain Control (CLGC). The following ports on the MCR are used for these functions: MCR Port RC1 RC2 TONE Dual Duplex Filter Connection J11 J31 J41 Function CLGC (for Tx1 port) CLGC (for Tx2 port) Antenna Test

NOTE: The MCR can also connect to the HD Combiner Attenuator Unit (CAU). In this case, the MCR is transmitting through the SII LAC or pre-R29 BS 8440A (MCPA). CLGC is not supported for MCRs connected to a CAU and Antenna Tests are executed by the SII RTU (if equipped).
