Features of the CME
 Automatic Data Refreshing on the Iub Interface
When configuring Iub interface data, configure the transport network layer
data to the RNC, and then start the data refreshing function to
synchronize the data at the NodeB with the configured data at the RNC.
Thus, the Iub interface data in the Radio Network System (RNS).
Automatic data refreshing on the Iub interface simplifies data configuration,
ensures data consistency for the Iub interface, and fulfills integrated
WRAN data configuration.
 Distributed Client and Server
The CME works in distributed mode, in which the client and server are
separated and work as follows:
A CME server can connect to several CME clients at the same time.
A CME client can connect to different CME servers, but can only connect
to one CME server at a time.
The distributed mode ensures flexibility in applying the CME.

Features of the CME
 Convenient Resource Management
The resource indication on the CME client shows in real time the usage of
transmission resources, such as the bandwidth and physical links.
The device panel on the CME client shows the NodeB hardware data
configuration in real time.
 Intelligent Data Operation
The CME automatically operates the key data of neighboring cells, SAAL
links, IP routes, and ATM addresses. And then the CME collects available
resources, puts them into the resource pool, and displays them on the
GUIs.
The CME configures the data available in the resource pool in batches.

Features of the CME
 User-Centered Design (UCD)
The CME provides multiple information navigation modes, such as
navigation by Network Element (NE) and by protocol stack. Some
configuration, such as adding a NodeB or cell or removing a NodeB or cell,
can be performed through the wizard.
UCD simplifies data configuration.
 Project-Based Data Management
All configuration data of the CME is stored on the database of the CME
server. You can create multiple projects. Database space separated by
projects enables you to configure different RAN data.
Project-based data management facilitates data backup.

Features of the CME
 Auxiliary Data Modification Tool
The CME can synchronize data with the RNC BAM server. In addition, the
CME provides the wizard for operations in RNC connected mode. The
operations include the following: adding NodeBs in batches, adding cells
in batches, modifying cell algorithm parameters in batches, modifying cell
frequencies, modifying neighboring cell relationships
These operations support MML-based data transfer to NEs in real time
and are applicable to scenarios such as routine maintenance and network
optimization.
 User-Friendly Online Help
With the online help, you can query information of parameters on a
configuration interface by the interface name. The parameter information
includes the value range, description, unit, and default value.
The introduction to the CME and description of project operations are also
available from the online help for you to check, browse, import, or export data.

Concepts of the CME -Project
 Concept
A project is a RAN data configuration task with a complete set
of data.

Concepts of the CME -Negotiated Data File
 Concept
A negotiated data file contains a set of configuration data that is obtained as
required during site preparation to simplify the initial configuration and expansion.
The data set includes the following data: NodeB basic data at the RNC, cell data
at the RNC, neighboring cell data, neighboring cell relationship data. The
negotiated data template file is saved in .xls format.
 Role of the Negotiated Data File in the CME
The negotiated data file can be a data source for CME initial configuration and
expansion.
 Method of Obtaining the Negotiated Data File
The negotiated data file is provided with the CME software. The file is available
from …\CMEV100R002\import, where … stands for the CME installation
directory
 Scenarios of the Negotiated Data File
During RAN initial configuration and expansion on the CME, import data in the
negotiated data file into the CME to generate CME configuration data.

Concepts of the CME -NodeB Template
 Concept
A NodeB template contains a set of recommended data predefined with
common configuration types, demodulation modes, and Iub transmission
modes to simplify NodeB data configuration.
 Role of the NodeB Template in the CME
The NodeB template can be a data source for NodeB data configuration on
the CME.
 Method of Obtaining the NodeB Template
The NodeB template is provided with the CME software. The template is
available from …\CMEV100R002\template\NodeB.
 Scenarios of the NodeB Template
During NodeB initial configuration on the CME, import a NodeB template
according to the NodeB type.

Concepts of the CME -NodeB Data Configuration File
 Concept
A NodeB data configuration file contains a complete set of NodeB configuration
data for proper operation of the NodeB.
 Role of the NodeB Data Configuration File in the CME
The NodeB data configuration file can be directly loaded to the NodeB as an
export file after NodeB data configuration. In addition, the NodeB data
configuration file is an optional data source for NodeB configuration on the CME.
 Method of Obtaining the NodeB Data Configuration File
You can export a NodeB data configuration file either after configuring the
NodeB data or from the current network. The file then serves as the data source
for NodeB data configuration.
 Scenarios of the NodeB Data Configuration File
Export the NodeB data configuration file to the NodeB LMT after the RAN initial
configuration is complete on the CME. Then load the file to the NodeB and
validate the file.
When reconfiguring the RAN on the CME, import the NodeB data configuration
file to the CME server to synchronize new NodeB data with existing NodeB data.
