Principles and Functions of a BBU3900

A BBU3900 is a baseband processing unit. It processes the baseband signals of a base station.

The BBU3900 includes the baseband subsystem, cabinet subsystem, transmission subsystem, interconnection subsystem, main control subsystem, monitoring subsystem, and clock subsystem, and each subsystem consists of different units or modules as follows: The baseband subsystem consists of the baseband processing unit. The cabinet subsystem consists of the backplane, fan, and power modules. The transmission subsystem consists of the main control transmission unit and transmission extension unit. The interconnection subsystem consists of the main control transmission unita and infrastructure interconnection unit. The main control subsystem consists of the main control transmission unit. The monitoring subsystem consists of the power module and monitoring unit. The clock subsystem consists of the main control transmission unit and clock signal processing unit.
NOTE

a: The main control transmission unit in an interconnection subsystem is the UMPT.

The following figure shows the principle of the BBU3900.

3 Principles and Functions of a BBU3900

Figure 3-1 Principle of the BBU3900

Function
The BBU3900 performs the following functions: l Provides ports to be connected to the transmission equipment, RF modules, USB devicesa, external clock reference, and LMT or M2000 for transmitting signals, automatically upgrading software, receiving clock reference, and maintaining the BBU on the LMT or M2000. Manages the entire base station system, including the processing of uplink and downlink data, signaling processing, resource management, and operation and maintenance.
NOTE

a: The security of the USB port is ensured by encryption, and the USB port can be shut down using commands. The USB commission port is used for commissioning the base station rather than configuring and exporting information of the base station.

BBU Slot Assignment in a GU Base Station


NOTE

l A GU base station is a separate-MPT base station. This means that in one single BBU, there are two main control boards working in GSM and UMTS modes separately. l A G*U base station is a co-MPT GU base station. This means that in one single BBU, the main control board work in GSM and UMTS modes simultaneously.

This section describes the principles for BBU slot assignment in a GL or G*L base station.

BBU Slot Assignment in a GL Base Station


NOTE

l A GL base station is a separate-MPT base station. This means that in one single BBU, there are two main control boards working in GSM and LTE modes separately. l A G*L base station is a co-MPT GL base station. This means that in one single BBU, the main control board work in GSM and LTE modes simultaneously.

The following figure shows the BBU slot assignment.

In a GU dual-mode base station where the GTMU is connected to port on the WMPT or UMPT through ports on their panels, part of CPRI bandwidth of the UMTS mode is reserved for a TX and an RX channel of the GSM mode in case that bandwidths of the GSM mode are insufficient. As a result, the number of cells supported by the UMTS mode is reduced.
