BSC
The main function of the BSC is to control and manage the BSS and the radio channels. It
transfers signalling information to and from the mobiles and manages handovers between
the cells.
The BSC is connected to a BTS via the Abis (CS and PS traffic) interface. CS traffic goes o
the core network through the A interface (CS traffic towards MSC/MGW) or through the A
over IP. A over IP provides cost savings in transport, maintenance and operability as IP-
technology is more cost effective, easily configurable and flexible than TDM networks. PS
traffic goes to the core network through the Gb interface (PS traffic towards SGSN) over
FR or through the optional Gb over IP7
Flexi BSC:The Flexi BSC is a solution for all GSM
markets. The maximum circuit handling capacity of a
Flexi BSC has been extended to support up to 4200
TRXs, while providing the highest traffic handling
capacity of 25000 Erl
mcBSC: Full IP based Multicontroller Platform.
Multicontroller BSC provides capacity for 4400 TRXs
and ver 26000 Erlangs. Modularity enables easy
capacity and, when the need comes to adopt a new
technology, Multi-controller BSC can be converted into a
3G Multicontroller RNC.

PCU
The PCU unit is an independent processing unit logically connected to the BSCU.The
PCU unit performs all the data processing tasks related to GPRS/EDGE traffic. It
implements packet switched traffic oriented Gb and Packet Abis The PCU controls
GPRS/EDGE radio resources and acts as the key unit in the following procedures:
• GPRS/EDGE radio resource allocation and management
• GPRS/EDGE radio connection establishment and management
• Data transfer
• Coding scheme selection

DAP
The pool between the base transceiver station and
base station controller that is dynamically allocated in
16 kbit/s blocks for EDGE data calls
Dynamic Abis is always required with EGPRS,
Coding Schemes CS-3 and CS-4.

BAL
With this object you define the frequencies of the BCCH frequency list. It´s used for matrix
interference purposes.
If either any of the Common BCCH are used or ISHO Support feature is used, the max is
31. If any of the Common BCCH feature and also ISHO Support feature is used, the max
is 30.
MAL
The frequencies for a hopping cell are defined by attaching the cell to one of the mobile
allocation frequency lists (MA-lists) defined by the operator.
The maximum number of frequencies in one mobile
allocation frequency list is 63

Neighbours (ADCE, ADJW, ADJL)

ADCE: The adjacent GSM cell object collection contains parameters specific to the
adjacent GSM cell. There is an adjacent GSM cell object for each adjacent GSM cell.
ADJW: The adjacent UTRAN cell object collection contains parameters specific to the
adjacent WCDMA RAN cell and adjacent RAN cell
ADJL: This object contains informations for LTE (Long Term Evolution) related
adjacent cell parameters. The configurations enhanced mobiles station to execute
autonomous cell reselections (CS and PS cell reselection) from GSM cells to LTE
cells.

There can be:


32 intra frequency adjacencies (ADJS),
31 if ISHO is active
30 if Common BCCH is active
32 UMTS adjacencies (ADJW)
8 LTE Adjacencies (ADJL)

HOC & POC: Handover Control & Power Control

The required parameters are stored in the BSS Radio Network Configuration
Database. All parameters controlling the handover and power control are administered
either on a cell-by-cell basis or on a transceiver-by-transceiver basis by using the local
MMI in the BSC site or NetAct. By changing the values of the parameters it is possible
to affect the RF power control and handover decisions at all stages of the procedure,
that is, during measurement preprocessing, threshold comparison, and the decision
algorithm.

Each BTS is attached only to one HOC and


POC identified by label “1”. Ie:

PLMN-1\BSC-99\BCF-28\BTS-29\HOC-1

Logical structure of the RNW


management

Each controlled network element and


conceptual entity in the network is
represented by a logical object, each of
which has an object collection of its own and
is associated with a number of parameters
that define its behavior.
As illustrated in figure Logical structure of
the RNW management objects some object
types are divided into subtypes. For
example, Frequency Measurement Control
(FMC) is divided into Intra-Frequency
Measurement Control (FMCS), Inter-
Frequency Measurement Control (FMCI),
and Inter-System Measurement Control
(FMCG). Because the set of parameters
differs from one subtype to another, each of
these subtypes has to be an object in its
own right.
