MW upgrade scenario and flow

What is Microwave upgrade?

MW upgrade = MW CAPACITY expansion by means of SW or HW

1. Capacity upgrade will result to KPI reduction with no change on hardware.

2. One MW channel can support up to 183Mbps maximum at freq 6, 7, 8, 15 & 23


GHz and one MW channel can support up to 252Mbps maximum at freq 11 GHz.

3. Dual-polarization can support double capacity.

SW upgrade also need HW upgrade in case of required. But without consideration of


KPI, at least 183Mbps can be achieved only by SW upgrade. If higher than 183M
expected, HW modification is needed, i.e, to replace antenna by dual-polarization.

Conclusion: the HW upgrade are caused by 2 reasons:

1. As SW upgrading, if maintaining the same or improving the KPI. HW upgrade is


needed.

2. SW upgrade can reach 183M, beyond this, you should replace the hardware, i.e,
the dual pol. Antennas to achieve.

Upgrade preparation
1.Collect data for upgrading via NMS.
A. Use ODU inspector to collect ODU information, including ODU frequency &
sub-band & brand.
B. Use IDU inspector to collect IDU information, including slot & configuration
data & IF board type.
C. Analyze data, prepare list for engineering survey

2. Survey
A. Survey tower space for new antenna;
B. Survey TMC cabinet and RTN quantity;

C. LAN cable connection between IDUs;


D. Re-COLO

2. Subcontractor reach Swap/upgrade area
Daytime

3. Sub-con engineer can use Web-LCT


4. Laptop already install U2000 Web-LCT and working

1. MW engineer on Mini-NOC/BSC
2. Check existing link RSL & Alarm
3. Change ODU modulation mode for the far end of this link
4. Change ODU modulation mode for the near end of this link
Nighttime

5. Check RSL & Alarm , Should be working. If interference happen go to


next step
6. Sub-con must be logging in NE fallback original data when
communication failed due to frequency interference happen
