7 Managing NodeB Alarms

7.1 Concepts Related to NodeB Alarm Management
Users need to learn about NodeB alarms before managing them. This section describes concepts related to NodeB alarms, including alarm types, alarm logs, alarm severity, and alarm classification based on network management.

7.1.1 Alarm Types
This section describes the alarm types including fault alarms and event alarms. Table 7-1 describes the alarm types. Table 7-1 Fault alarms and event alarms Alarm Types Fault alarms Event alarms Description A fault alarm is caused by a hardware malfunction or an anomaly of a major function. Fault alarms are of higher severity than event alarms. An event alarm indicates a predefined event that happens during the running of the devices. The alarm represents an instantaneous status of the system which may not be a fault. Some event alarms are generated repeatedly and regularly. Event alarms are not categorized as active or recovery alarms.

Fault alarms are categorized as either active or recovery alarms. l l If the fault is cleared, the status of the alarm changes to Recovery, and the alarm is called a recovery alarm. If the fault persists, the status of the alarm remains Active, and the alarm is called an active alarm.

For example, when congestion occurs in a cell, the system reports a fault alarm of cell congestion. Before the congestion is cleared, the alarm remains an active one. After the congestion is cleared, the alarm becomes a recovery one.
NOTE

The record of a recovery alarm is stored in the BAM database and can be queried.

7.1.2 Alarm Logs
The alarm log contains detailed information about each alarm generated by the system. You can query alarm logs on the NodeB. For more information, refer to 7.3.2 Querying Alarm Logs.

7.1.3 Alarm Severity
This section describes the alarm severity. It indicates the seriousness of a fault. The alarm severity for both fault alarms and event alarms can be categorized into four levels: critical, major, minor, and warning.

9.1 Basic Concepts of the Interface Tracing
This section describes the basic concepts of the interface tracing.

Functions of Message Tracing Management
Message tracing management is used to trace interfaces, signaling links, and internal messages. It is used for routine equipment maintenance, debugging, and fault location. The NodeB provides the following tracing functions: l l l l l l l l l Tracing the Iub interface signaling Tracing IP messages Tracing SCTP messages Tracing ICP messages Tracing SAAL messages Tracing user messages Tracing cell messages Tracing MAC messages Tracing PTP Messages

Internal Process for Tracing Messages
This section describes the internal processes for creating a tracing task and reporting traced messages from a board to the LMT. l Creating a tracing task – The operator creates a tracing task on the LMT, and the LMT sends a binary command to the BAM to create the task. – The BAM assigns an ID to the task and forwards the command to the debugging module of the specified board. – After receiving the command, the debugging module records the filter parameters of the tracing data in the filter table and notifies the service module. – The service module updates the local filter table according to the message from the debugging module. l Reporting traced messages – The service module filters the collected messages according to the filter parameters in the local filter table and reports the messages that meet the requirements to the BAM. – The BAM server forwards the messages to the LMT that created the task according to the task ID. – The LMT translates the traced messages and displays them on the interface.

9.2 Tracing Iub interface Messages
This section describes how to trace messages at the Iub interface. Traced messages can be automatically or manually saved. You can browse the traced messages online or offline.

This section describes how to measure the board-level RTWP. You can calibrate the gain of uplink RF channels through the board-level RTWP measurement. The NodeB RTWP test has impact on the services.

Context
Analyses of the board-level RTWP measurement are as follows: l If the NodeB is disconnected from the antenna system or a matched load, the RTWP is approximately -108 dBm. If the NodeB is connected to the antenna system (with TMA switched on) or a matched load, the RTWP is approximately -105 dBm. If the services are normal and the uplink load reaches 75%, the RTWP is 6 dB higher than the RTWP when the NodeB does not carry any service.
NOTE

l

l l

When the reported RTWP is valid, the curve is normal. The vertical axis corresponds to the reported RTWP with the unit of 0.1 dBm. When the reported RTWP is invalid, abnormal RTWP curves are displayed. The RTWP for the main antenna forms a horizontal line at -112 dBm on the vertical axis. The RTWP for the diversity antenna forms a horizontal line at -111.5 dBm on the vertical axis. The error may lie in the absent MTRU or RRU, a broken link, or a faulty channel. In this case, clear the fault first.

Procedure
Step 1 In the navigation pane, click the Maintenance tab. Step 2 Double-click Realtime Specific Monitoring > Board RTWP. The Board RTWP dialog box is displayed. For the parameter details in the Board RTWP dialog box, see 13.14.6 Interface Reference for Measuring the Board RTWP. Step 3 Set the corresponding parameters in the dialog box. Step 4 Click OK. A monitoring window is displayed, showing the current monitoring task in graphs. Step 5 To stop this test task, use either of the following methods: l Method 1: Close the task monitoring window directly to stop all monitoring tasks displayed in the window. l Method 2: Right-click the task on the monitoring task list and select Delete Task from the shortcut menu. The curve displayed for the task is deleted together with the task. ----End

Result

Table 13-8 Monitoring items for the board-level RTWP measurement Item Carrier n Rx Receive Freq Carrier n Primary RTWP (0.1dBm) Carrier n Secondary RTWP (0.1dBm) Description Indicates the center frequency in the UL of carrier n. Unit: 0.2 MHz Indicates the RTWP value for the main antenna in the UL of carrier n. Indicates the RTWP value for the diversity antenna in the UL of carrier n.

NOTE

l The value of n ranges from 0 to 5 (One RF module can be configured with one to six carriers). The system outputs the RTWP value of the corresponding carrier based on the actual configuration. l One carrier may be configured with main and diversity RX.

13.7 Testing the NodeB Clock
This section describes how to test the clock of the NodeB. The quality of the clock source is crucial to the system operation. Thus, you must handle the clock alarm once it is generated. The clock test has no impact on the system or the service.

Prerequisite
The reference clock source for the NodeB is configured.

Context
The reference standards for the clock test are as follows: l For the GPS and BITS clock sources, the reporting period of the DA value is two minutes in normal conditions. In the case of jitter or large frequency offset, the reporting period may be longer than 2 minutes. Note that it is normal that the first reporting period is not 2 minutes. For the LINE clock source, the reporting period of the DA value is 30 minutes in normal conditions. In the case of jitter or large frequency offset, the reporting period may be longer than 30 minutes. Note that it is normal that the first reporting period is not 30 minutes.
NOTE

l

l

The reporting period of the phase discrimination value is different from that of the DA value. The reporting period of the phase discrimination value is 1s, while the reporting period of the DA value varies according to the type of the clock sources. In general, the phase discrimination value is from -10 to +10 when the clock module is functional. When the clock module malfunctions and a large frequency offset exists, the phase discrimination value is from -128 to +127.

13.8 Scanning the Uplink Frequency
This section describes how to scan the uplink frequency. The uplink frequency scanning helps you examine electromagnetic environment around the NodeB and internal interference of the NodeB. The RRU or WRFU scans the frequency continuously, calculates the strength of received signals, and reports the results. It is recommended that the uplink frequency be scanned before cell configuration.

Prerequisite
The MTRU/MRRU must be blocked before the RX frequency scanning starts.

Context
Reference criteria for test results of the uplink frequency scanning are as follows: l If the NodeB is disconnected from the antenna system and the curve jumps higher than -108 dBm, there is internal interference from the NodeB.

Prerequisite

Managing Interference Detection for the NodeB

About This Chapter
By analyzing the spectral and power distribution of sampled data, you can monitor the interference in the frequency and time domains in radio environments.

You have logged in to the NodeB LMT.

Context
l l l When a local cell exists, the monitored frequency must be consistent with the uplink frequency configured for the local cell. If a local cell does not exist, the start frequency and end frequency must be within the frequency band supported by the RRU. Interference detection is performed on RF modules. To perform NodeB offline interference detection on a SDR-based RF module of a multi-mode base station, perform the following steps(For a GSM+UMTS (GU) base station): 1. 2. 3. On the NodeB, run the BLK BRD command to block the RF module. On the BSC, run the DEA BTS command to deactivate the base station on the GSM side. Wait 30 minutes and perform NodeB offline interference detection.

After NodeB offline interference detection is performed, unblock the RF module and activate the cell and base station.

Procedure
Step 1 In the navigation pane of the Local Maintenance Terminal window, click the Maintenance tab. Step 2 Double-click Interference Check. The Interference Check dialog box is displayed.

15.1 Starting the Serial Port Redirection
You can start the serial port redirection to obtain the operating status of the system for clearing the faults in a board.

Context
l l l l The default save path of the output information is LMT installation directory\client\output \NodeB\LMT software version\NodeB test. The default file name is Commredirect_year-month-day-hour-minute-second. The file is automatically saved in .txt format. There are two types of serial port redirection, which are out-band serial port redirection and non out-band serial port redirection. When the BBU Board Maintenance Link Failure alarm is reported, the serial port information of the disconnected board can be traced only through the out-band serial port redirection. In normal cases, the non out-band serial port redirection is recommended, because you can specify a program module of the board to perform the serial port redirection. The serial port redirection can be simultaneously performed on a maximum of 10 boards. For each board, a maximum of one users can start the serial port redirection task at the same time. The information of each task is displayed on a new tab page that is arranged in cascading mode in the window.
