6. SW MANAGEMENT
Out of box FSMF System module is delivered with so called factory load SW.

6.1 FSMF factory load SW


All new FSMF version A.103 modules are delivered with preinstalled LN4.0 1.2 (LN4.0 ENB
1202_781_57) SW that has hardware security enabled (SW Verification Agent).
Repaired FSMF version A.102 modules are also updated to same LN4.0 1.2 (LN4.0_ENB_1202_
781_57) SW since week 11/2014. After this, FSMF version A.102 works exactly the same as FSMF
A.103, including RAN2423 SW Verification agent (WCDMA) and LTE940 SW Verification agent
(LTE/TD-LTE) features. Some FSMF A.102 modules delivered from NSN hubs may still contain
older factory SW (LN4.0_ENB_1202_696_00). In this case it is recommended to check the possible
SW upgrade options in reference documentation (chapter 8).
RAN2423 SW Verification agent (WCDMA) and LTE940 SW Verification agent (LTE/TD-LTE)
have been enabled in RU30/RU40/RL40/RL50/RL25/RL35 BTS SWs and onwards. Therefore, SW
versions listed in 6.2 are recommended to assure successful SW update.
For further details, refer to
TS-LTE_BTS_FDD-SW-0047 Severe issue - introduction of the LTE940 - SW Verification Agent and
WCDMA RAN, Rel. RU40, Operating Documentation, Issue 03, RAN2423: SW Verification Agent.
BTS Site manager compatibility vs. FSMF factory load
To complete LTE to WCDMA SW update there is no need to have compatible LTE BTS Site
manager available as WCDMA BTS Site Manager can be used as well. While FSMF is initially
running LTE SW and when using WCDMA BTS Site manager, the BTS Hardware view will be limited
though and no modules can be displayed. However, SW update is possible from FSMF factory load
(LTE) to RU30/RU40 BTS SW (WCDMA).

Figure 1: Incompatible BTS Site manager view


If a firewall is installed on the PC, you may need to configure it to allow TCP ports 13062 13092 to
accept incoming connections from the Flexi Multiradio BTS. This TCP port must be open to enable
FlexiBTS Site Manager software downloading and commissioning file transfer to BTS. For further
information, contact your System Administrator or IT Helpdesk.

6.4 SW updates from WN8.0 2.1 to WN8.0 3.1 and later


Once WN8.0 2.1 is activated to WCDMA BTS and further SW upgrade is planned to WN8.0 3.1 or
later, in some cases BTS is requesting additional reset due to changed link speed validation
functionality.
When 3Gb link speed SFPs are used on optical link between FSMF and RF modules / when RF
module does not support 6Gb link speed, additional reset is not needed.

7. INSTRUCTIONS
The instructions given in this section are used to prepare the FSMF system module for the site visit.
References to the operating documentation (in NOLS) can be found in Further details column.

7.1 Time required


The total time needed for the entire swap depends on the site specific requirement and how much
preparation was done in advance. There are many ways to implement FSMF swap, this approach is
typical to make necessary changes with existing tools.

7.2 Preparations
In order to minimize outage time during FSME/D to FSMF swap, it is recommended to perform
certain activities in advance/remotely. However, all these steps can also be done while on site.
Tools required

scheduler
Formula for scheduler licensed
throughput:
If there are only HSDPA Processing
Set 2 and three licenses are present
in BTS, the division of licensed
throughput will be done for each
scheduler according to the formula
below:

Example: 3+3+3, 2xLCG, 9 cells 20Km,


In total, 1 x 21 + 2 x 84 Mbps = 189Mbps of
licensed capacity available for all schedulers.
Scheduler licensed throughputs are
calculated as per given formula (scheduler
throughput steps from step 5.8)
Scheduler 1 - LCG 1 =
Round down {(1 + 4*2) * (12 /(12+6+6+3)) } * 21
Mbps = 84 Mbps
Scheduler 2 - LCG 1 =
Round down {(1 + 4*2) * (6 /(12+6+6+3)) } * 21
Mbps = 42 Mbps
Scheduler 1 - LCG 2 =
Round down {(1 + 4*2) * (6 /(12+6+6+3)) } * 21
Mbps = 42 Mbps
Scheduler 2 - LCG 2 =
Round down {(1 + 4*2) * (3 /(12+6+6+3)) } * 21
Mbps = 21 Mbps

Scheduler_licensed_throughput =
Round_down {
(Number_of_HSDPA_Processing_Sets_2 + 4*
Number_of_HSDPA_Processing_Sets_3) *
(Scheduler_HSDPA_throughput_step /
Total_number_of_HSDPA_throughput_step_p
er_BTS) } * 21 Mbps

If after calculations presented above


throughput for all schedulers is
lower than total licensed throughput
in the BTS, the remaining
throughput is distributed between
activated schedulers.
Schedulers are prioritized in the
following order:
a) Scheduler with lowest value of
licensed throughput divided by
commissioned throughput;
b) Schedulers belonging to LCG
with the lowest ID (in case of
Normal HSPA configuration
where 2 HSDPA schedulers
activated, scheduler#1 is prioritized
over scheduler#2).

scheduler
Formula for scheduler licensed
throughput:
If there are only HSDPA Processing
Set 2 and three licenses are present
in BTS, the division of licensed
throughput will be done for each
scheduler according to the formula
below:

In total, 1 x 21 + 2 x 84 Mbps = 189Mbps of


licensed capacity available for all schedulers.
Scheduler licensed throughputs are
calculated as per given formula (scheduler
throughput steps from step 9.7)
Scheduler 1 - LCG 1 =
Round down {(1 + 4*2) * (12 /(12+6+6+3)) } * 21
Mbps = 84 Mbps
Scheduler 2 - LCG 1 =
Round down {(1 + 4*2) * (6 /(12+6+6+3)) } * 21
Mbps = 42 Mbps
Scheduler 1 - LCG 2 =
Round down {(1 + 4*2) * (6 /(12+6+6+3)) } * 21
Mbps = 42 Mbps
Scheduler 2 - LCG 2 =
Round down {(1 + 4*2) * (3 /(12+6+6+3)) } * 21
Mbps = 21 Mbps

Scheduler_licensed_throughput =
Round_down {
(Number_of_HSDPA_Processing_Sets_2 + 4*
Number_of_HSDPA_Processing_Sets_3) *
(Scheduler_HSDPA_throughput_step /
Total_number_of_HSDPA_throughput_step_p
er_BTS) } * 21 Mbps

If after calculations presented above


throughput for all schedulers is
lower than total licensed throughput
in the BTS, the remaining
throughput is distributed between
activated schedulers.
Schedulers are prioritized in the
following order:
a) Scheduler with lowest value of
licensed throughput divided by
commissioned throughput;
b) Schedulers belonging to LCG
with the lowest ID ( in case of
Normal HSPA configuration (2
HSDPA schedulers activated)
scheduler#1 is prioritized over
scheduler#2).

Description
Power output for power chaining to one optional baseband capacity extension sub-module.
Power input connector for power distribution to the System Module.
Ethernet interface for Element Manager or Site Support equipment (battery backup module,
for example). All external devices requiring IP connectivity shall be connected to LMP using
10/100Mbit switch.
An additional optical interface that provides RP3-01 (OBSAI) or CPRI interfacing to RF
Module or RRH. Another option is interfacing to another System Module (RP3-01 only).
Alternatively, it can be SW configured as a GbE interface for external transport. Note that
this is the default configuration.
Optical interfaces provide RP3-01 (OBSAI) or CPRI interfacing to RF Modules or RRHs.
Another option is interfacing to other System Modules (RP3-01 only).
Interface in the core module and one similar interface in each optional extension submodules support high-speed chaining up to nine System Modules per BTS.
Interfaces for broadband interconnecting between the core module and the optional
extension sub-modules. All necessary signals are carried over a single copper cable
between the core module and the sub-module.
100/1000 Base-T Gigabit Ethernet interface for external transport, that is, interfacing
towards the RAN, or directly towards the CN (LTE).
External Alarms and Controls (EAC) interface provides six alarm signals and six SW
controllable interfaces that can be assigned to support either control or alarm signals.
HDMI-based input and output external synchronization interfaces enable, for example,
interfacing to GPS equipment.
