2 Introduction to Reconfiguration

2.1 Definition
Reconfiguration refers to the process of adding, deleting, or modifying the data of the RAN
system (consisting of at least one base station controller and one base station) after it starts
operating.
This document focuses on associated data preparation and reconfiguration procedures. The
detailed data analysis process for network optimization and the number of boards and links for
capacity expansion are determined according to actual network conditions.
This document involves the following scenarios:
l

Network optimization
Network optimization is the process of adjusting and optimizing network performance
based on the data obtained from performance measurements or drive tests when the network
is in service.

System capacity expansion


System capacity expansion enables the system to serve more users with hardware addition
or reconfiguration in the existing network.

Transmission reconstruction
Transmission reconstruction is the process of changing the transmission mode of the
existing transport network.

Network cutover
Network cutover is the process of physically or logically changing the cables or devices in
use.
NOTE

This document describes only the data configuration procedure. The data planning is described in
professional service documentation.

2.2 Tools
The local maintenance terminal (LMT) and the Configuration Management Express (CME) can
be used to configure the BSC6900.
Table 2-1 describes the reconfiguration tools.
Table 2-1 Reconfiguration tools

Issue 03 (2015-06-30)

Data Configuration Tool

Function

LMT

The LMT provides graphic user interfaces (GUIs) for users to


configure a single network element (NE) using MML
commands.

CME

The CME provides GUIs for users to configure a single base


station controller, base station, or cell. In addition, the CME
supports batch configuration of multiple base stations and
cells by importing or exporting a configuration file.

Export configuration data from the CME as a script. When exporting the
script, the CME automatically generates a rollback script.
On the menu bar of the planned data area, choose Area Management >
Planned Area > Export Incremental Scripts (CME client mode) or
CME > Planned Area > Export Incremental Scripts (U2000 client
mode). Then, export configuration scripts.
NOTE
l If the OMCH is disconnected in the reconstruction scenario, you are advised to
export the full base station script during the script export.
The operation portal is as follows: Choose Advanced > Export NE Files (CME
client mode) or CME > Advanced > Export NE Files (U2000 client mode) on
the current or planned data area.
l When you export incremental scripts:
l If you need to check or edit scripts in the script executor window before
activating the scripts, select Launch script executor only during the export.
The CME then automatically uploads the scripts to the U2000 server.
l If you need to immediately activate scripts after they are exported, select
Launch script executor and activate exported project during the export.
l If you do not need to activate scripts or check scripts in the script executor
window, select Do not launch script executor during the export.

For detailed operations, see section Exporting Incremental Scripts from


a Planned Data Area in the U2000 Help.
Activate
scripts.

Activate the scripts exported the CME for them to take effect on NEs. If
Launch script executor and activate exported project is not selected
when you export scripts, you have to manually activate the scripts.
1. On the menu bar of the CME main window, choose System > Script
Executor (CME client mode) or CME > Script Executor (U2000 client

Checking a License

This section describes how to check a newly granted license of the base station controller.

Prerequisites
l

A new license has been granted.

The license file has been imported to the \ftp\license directory in the installation directory
of the OMU active workspace. For details about how to import the license file, see FTP
Server.

Context
A new license is required in the following situations:
l

A network is deployed.

New license control items are introduced to the customization (C) version to be upgraded.
These license control items, however, are not defined in the license file of the earlier version.

New license control items are introduced to the C version to be upgraded. These license
control items are defined in the license file of the earlier version, but their values are
incorrect.

The release (R) version is upgraded.

The equipment serial number (ESN) changes.

The functions controlled by a license need to be enabled.

The license in use is about to expire.

BTSs are redistributed among BSCs, and the original licensed value cannot meet the license
requirement after the BTS redistribution. Therefore, new licenses are required.

Procedure
Step 1 Run the CHK DATA2LIC command to check a license file. In this step, set File Name to an
appropriate value.

This section describes how to restore the system data using the data backup file and using the
encrypted backup file.

Prerequisites
The system data has been backed up.

Context
Restoring the BSC6900 system data will interrupt services on the BSC6900. The data on the
host will be inconsistent with the data on the OMU after the system data is restored. As a result,
the services will be greatly impacted. Therefore, you are advised to restore the system data in
the early morning hours when traffic volume is low.
As an example, the OMU in active/standby mode is used in this document. If an OMU is in
independent mode, skip operations on the standby OMU.
This chapter describes how to restore data by using the following methods:
l

If an MML command is used to restore data, only the BSC6900 configuration data is
restored while other data, such as alarm data or performance data, cannot be restored.

If the omu_backup_linker tool is used to restore data, all BSC6900 data is restored,
including configuration data, alarm data, performance data, operating logs, administrator
account, authority information, SSL configuration information, certificate information and

5 Backing Up and Restoring Data by CME

Backing Up and Restoring Data by CME


This section describes how to back up and restore data. Users can use the function to restore the
network to the state before parameters were reconfigured during network performance
optimization, if the network performance does not meet users' expectations.

Context
The CME provides the following methods for you to back up and restore data:
You create a planned data area to reconfigure network data. All the operations performed in the
planned data area are recorded and then exported as a script. This script takes effect on the live
network after it is activated by the script executor. When exporting the script, the CME generates
a fallback script. If unsatisfied with the reconfiguration, you can activate the fallback script to
restore the network to a state before the reconfiguration.

Procedure
Step 1 After you perform operations based on the process for reconfiguring data using the CME, the
CME automatically generates a data fallback script. For details about the process, see Process
for Reconfiguring Data Using the CME.
Step 2 Perform steps based on Fallback in each scenario.
1.

On the menu bar of the CME main window, choose System > Script Executor (CME client
mode) or CME > Script Executor (U2000 client mode). The script executor window is
displayed.

2.

In the Script Executor window, click the Summary tab.

3.

Right-click the project whose data you want to roll back and choose Activate Fallback
Project from the shortcut menu.

You can press F1 on the CME to view section Fallback Based on Configuration Steps in the
U2000 Help for the detailed function operations and introduction.

Step 7 Run the FMT DATA command to generate configuration data files for all subracks.
Step 8 If the newly added subrack is not powered on, turn on the power switch of the subrack.
Step 9 On the LMT, choose Device Maintenance to check the board status. Ten minutes later, all the
boards in the subrack are loaded, and the subrack begins to work properly. Observe the status
of each board in the Device Maintenance window.
Step 10 On the Browse Alarm tab page on the LMT, check whether alarms related to board faults are
reported.

Then...

Alarms related to board faults are


reported

1. Analyze and clear the alarms according to the


alarm help information.
2. Go to Step 10.

No alarms related to board faults are


reported

Go to Step 11.

NOTE

For a newly added subrack that is not configured with any BTSs, the BSC allocates some services to the
subrack based on the load sharing algorithm. Therefore, if an alarm is reported by any board in the subrack,
you must clear the alarm in a timely manner. Otherwise, services will be negatively affected.

Step 11 Run the CMP BRDVERCheck whether the software version of the board in the newly added
subrack is consistent with the host software.
If...

Then...

The values are consistent.

Go to Step 12.

The values are inconsistent.

1. Run the RST BRD command to reset the board.


2. Go to Step 11.

NOTE

You can obtain the correct board version mapping table from Release Notes.

NOTE

l Subsystem 0 of an SPUa, SPUb, or SPUc board whose logical function type is RUCP is the main processing
unit (MPU). The MPU manages other boards (XPU, DPU, interface boards) in the subrack.
l An SPUa, SPUb, or SPUc board whose logical function type is UCP does not have an MPU. All its
subsystems are CPUS subsystems. The board whose logical function type is UCP carries only the BTS and
transmission links.
l To remove an SPUa, SPUb, or SPUc board and then add a new SPUa, SPUb, or SPUc board, use MML
commands.

To check the logical function type of a board, run the LST BRD command. The command output
displays the board logical function type.
In terms of logical functions, SPUa/SPUb/SPUc boards can be categorized as Resource
Management and UMTS RNC Control plane Process (RUCP) boards and UMTS RNC Control
plane Process (UCP) boards.

NOTICE
l Removing the SPUa/SPUb/SPUc board interrupts cell services and transmission links. Do
not remove the SPUa/SPUb/SPUc board unless otherwise specified.
l If you need to remove an SPUa, SPUb, or SPUc board in special scenarios, remove only the
board whose logical function type is UCP.

Hardware requirement
If the IP clock synchronization mode is used, ensure that the IP clock server compatible
with Huawei devices is deployed.
If the GPS synchronization mode is used, ensure that the GPS satellite receiver and
antennas are installed and the GPS device works properly.

Software requirement
None

License requirement
A license is required for some clock synchronization features. A license file required for
reconfiguring the clock synchronization mode has been sent from the U2000 to the NodeB.
For the detailed operation procedure, see Managing NodeB Licenses in U2000 Online
Help.

Context

NOTICE
Without synchronization sources, the NodeB clock can maintain its accuracy for about 90 days.
However, if the NodeB cannot synchronize time with the new clock source 90 days after the
new clock source is configured, services on the NodeB will be affected.
During transport network restructuring, the clock synchronization mode may be reconfigured.
For example, when an ATM network is restructured into an IP network, the E1 clock
synchronization mode may be replaced with the IEEE1588 V2 synchronization mode.

7 Reconfiguring the NodeB

NOTE

For a co-MPT base station, configure the baseband processing board only once and configure the
baseband equipment separately for each mode of the base station. For a separate-MPT base station,
configure the baseband processing board for each mode separately because different modes of the
base station cannot share the same baseband board.

The UBBP board supports multimode concurrence. When a UBBP board is added, the proportions
of resources on the board for different RATs must be specified. When the UBBP is used in multimode
concurrence scenarios, configure the UBBP for other modes. For details, see the corresponding
reconfiguration guides:
l GSM: GBSS Reconfiguration Guide for BSC6900
l LTE FDD: eRAN (FDD) Reconfiguration Guide

Run the NodeB MML command ADD BRD to set Hardware Capacity Enhance for the UBBP
board.

For the detailed configuration principle for WBBPs or UBBPs, see NodeB Baseband Resource
Management Feature Parameter Description.

It is not necessary to set the base station resource allocation mode and automatic cell reestablishment
switch if the uplink CE resources are added or the downlink CE resources are added for the WBBPb1
or WBBPb2 board.

Procedure
l

Using MML commands


1.

Run the NodeB MML command ADD BRD to add a WBBP or UBBP for a NodeB.
When a UBBP board is added, specify the UMTS mode for which the UBBP provides
baseband processing resources.

2.

Run the NodeB MML command MOD BASEBANDEQM to add baseband


equipment. After the new board is added to the corresponding baseband equipment,
the NodeB records the information about the baseband equipment and related uplink
and downlink baseband resources.

3.

Optional: When the downlink CE resources are expanded by adding boards to the
downlink resource group, configure the resource allocation mode for the NodeB and
reestablish local cells.

NOTICE
Services in all cells will be interrupted during the operation.
NOTE

The following operations are not required if the uplink CE resources are expanded or the
downlink CE resources are expanded for the WBBPb1 or WBBPb2 board.

7.2.8 Replacing a Main Control Board


When the WMPT can no longer meet service requirements, for example, it cannot provide
sufficient CNBAP capacity, replace the WMPT with the UMPT. For details about how to replace
the software, see Replacing the WMPT in DBS3900 Site Maintenance Guide. This section
mainly describes the configuration adjustment related to the replacement.

Prerequisites
l

Before data preparation, collect information listed in Table 7-17.


Table 7-17 Required information

Information

Description

Local maintenance IP address

Record the local maintenance IP address of


the WMPT before replacement. This IP
address is necessary for a rollback in the
event of a replacement failure.

Hardware requirement
The UMPT is prepared.
If the USB flash drive is used to restore the software and configurations, ensure that the
USB port on the UMPT is enabled.

7 Reconfiguring the NodeB

Software requirement
You have obtained the software package from Huawei engineers and decompressed the
software package on a local PC.

License requirement
N/A

Context
Replacing the WMPT has the following impacts on the base station:
l

If no standby WMPT is configured, replacing the WMPT interrupts all the services carried
by the base station. Therefore, the WMPT must be replaced within 10 minutes.

If a multimode base station supports co-transmission and the shared ports for cotransmission are on the WMPT, replacing the WMPT will interrupt the services of the peer
mode. Typical scenario: The GU dual-mode base station supports co-transmission over IP
through the Ethernet link on the WMPT. The GSM data is transmitted through the FE ports
interconnecting the WMPT and GTMU panels.

For a multimode base station in dual-star topology, replacing the WMPT may decrease the
rate of GSM or LTE data services. However, voice services will not be affected.

When the WMPT can no longer meet service requirements, for example, it cannot provide
sufficient CNBAP capacity, replace the WMPT with the UMPT by following the process
illustrated in Figure 7-10.

NOTICE
l

Do not use a USB flash drive but the LMT or U2000 to restore the software and
configurations when any certificate or authentication related data is being used, because
the CME cannot export such data. Such data includes the data related to a PPP certificate,
multi-link PPP certificate, or pre-shared key used for authentication.

If the NodeB is configured with VLAN group mode, change the VLAN group mode to
single VLAN mode. For instructions on how to adjust the configuration, see 7.4.3
Changing the VLAN Configuration Mode.

NOTICE
Before changing CPRI ports used by RF units, ensure that the CPRI physical connection be
consistent with the data configuration. You can run the command LST RRUCHAIN to query
the configuration of the RRU/RFU chain or ring.
This is a high-risk MML command, and therefore exercise caution when you are adjusting the
CPRI networking mode:
l

To modify the configuration of a chain, a breakpoint must be set at the chain head. To
modify the configuration of a ring, ensure that a breakpoint is set at both the ring head and
tail.

Do not specify the parameter Topo Type when setting a breakpoint.

If a breakpoint is set on an RRU chain, the services carried by the RF modules between the
optical port at the chain head and the breakpoint are not interrupted. The services carried
on the RF modules behind the breakpoint are interrupted.

If two breakpoints are set on an RRU ring, the services carried by the RF modules between
the two breakpoints are interrupted. The services carried by the RF modules between the
optical port at the ring head/tail and the breakpoint may be interrupted.

Context

NOTICE
Before changing CPRI ports used by RF units, ensure that the CPRI physical connection be
consistent with the data configuration. You can run the command LST RRUCHAIN to query
the configuration of the RRU/RFU chain or ring.
This is a high-risk MML command, and therefore exercise caution when you are adjusting the
CPRI networking mode:
l

To modify the configuration of a chain, a breakpoint must be set at the chain head.

Do not specify the parameter Topo Type when setting a breakpoint.

If a breakpoint is set on an RRU chain, the services carried by the RF modules between the
optical port at the chain head and the breakpoint are not interrupted. The services carried
on the RF modules behind the breakpoint are interrupted.

7.4.3 Changing the VLAN Configuration Mode


This section describes how to change the VLAN configuration mode from VLAN group to single
VLAN.

Prerequisites
Before changing the VLAN configuration mode from VLAN group to single VLAN, check
whether the current VLAN group configuration meets the following conditions:
l

The VLANs in a VLAN group are not isolated.

The Differentiated Service Codepoint (DSCP) value varies with service types in a VLAN
group. Service types of the same DSCP value must have the same VLAN priority.

After the VLAN configuration mode is changed to the single VLAN mode, the number of
VLAN priorities is no more than that of the VLAN priorities supported by the customer's
network equipment.
NOTE

l Generally, the customer's equipment supports eight VLAN priorities. In this case, this condition check
can be ignored.
l In single VLAN mode, different VLAN priorities are recommended for service flows. This section
does not describe how to modify the single VLAN mode.

Before changing the VLAN configuration mode, collect information listed in Table 7-36.

A pRRU can be added for service adjustment or capacity expansion. For example, a frequency
band is added or a sector is expanded. After a pRRU is added, its maximum transmit power can
be locked if required.
NOTE

The pRRU does not support the following parameter settings: VSWR alarm post-processing switch,
VSWR alarm post-processing threshold, VSWR alarm threshold, IfOffset, RF Desensitivity, Low
Current Protect Switch, ALD Reuse Flag, RU Specification, and PA Efficiency Improvement
Switch.

After a pRRU is added, carrier resources can be configured according to the configuration principles in
Independent Demodulation of Signals from Multiple Small Cell RRUs in One Cell Feature Parameter

If pRRUs are configured for existing pRRU-aggregation cells, a new license is not
required.

Application Scenario
Deploying pRRUs can help eliminate coverage holes and enhance coverage in weak coverage
areas. At the initial stage, one pRRU-aggregation cell that is served by multiple pRRUs can be
deployed, reducing inter-cell interference and the number of baseband processing units.
A pRRU-aggregation cell can be connected to one or multiple RHUBs on an RHUB chain or
ring. A maximum of four RHUBs can be cascaded.
An RHUB can be connected to a maximum of eight pRRUs, and a maximum of 96 pRRUs can
be aggregated to one pRRU-aggregation cell. If more than 96 pRRUs are aggregated, another
pRRU-aggregation cell is required.

NOTE

Among these parameters, the PCPICH power, maximum and minimum transmit powers of the
PCPICH, and the maximum transmit power of the cell are absolute values. The rest of the parameters
are power offsets relative to the PCPICH power.

If the SCCPCH or PRACH is in service, changing the maximum transmit power of the FACH or the
power of the PCH, PICH, or AICH can trigger the COMMON TRANSPORT CHANNEL
RECONFIGURATION procedure over the Iub interface.

If the cell is in service, changing the maximum transmit power of the cell or the power of PCPICH,
PSCH, SSCH, or BCH has the following impacts:
l If the maximum transmit power of the cell is changed to a value within the range specified by
the maximum and minimum transmit powers for cells under a NodeB, the change will take effect
and trigger the CELL RECONFIGURATION procedure over the Iub interface.
l If the maximum transmit power of the cell is changed to a value greater than the maximum
transmit power or less than the minimum transmit power for cells under a NodeB, the change
will not take effect nor trigger the CELL RECONFIGURATION procedure over the Iub interface.
When this occurs, the RNC will automatically report ALM-22215 UMTS Cell Max DL Power
Mismatch.

8.4 Reconfiguring NodeB Management Distribution


When an SPU subsystem serves multiple NodeBs and the CPU usage of the SPU subsystem
exceeds 60%, you need to distribute these NodeBs to multiple SPU subsystems. When the NodeB
Application Part (NBAP) signaling message processing capability of a NodeB is larger than 300
times per second, you need to distribute the cells under this NodeB to multiple SPU subsystems
to improve system stability.

8.4.1 Regularly Reconfiguring NodeB Distribution Using MML

This section describes how to regularly reconfigure NodeB distribution using MML commands.

Prerequisites

Before reconfiguring NodeB distribution, collect information listed in Table 8-36.

8 Reconfiguring the UMTS Network

Context
An SPUa/SPUb/SPUc board has several logical subsystems, which are called SPU subsystems.
The NodeB whose NodeB Application Part (NBAP) signaling message processing capability is
larger than 300 times per second is called a super NodeB.
Generally, all the cells under a NodeB are managed by one SPU subsystem. The load of an
SPU subsystem increases when the number of users increases and the traffic model changes.
With the reconfiguration, the BSC6900 can distribute cells under a NodeB to several SPU
subsystems, avoiding overload of a single SPU subsystem. This enables the BSC6900 to support
a single NodeB with high traffic volume.
Users can distribute NodeBs, cells, NCPs/CCPs or ADJNODE (when the Iub interface works
in ATM or ATM/IP dual stack mode) to different SPU subsystems.

NOTICE
Reconfiguring the NodeB, NCP, CCP, or ADJNODE will interrupt services. Perform the
reconfiguration when the traffic is light, for example, during early morning hours.
The reconfiguration principles are as follows:
l

When the CPU usage of an SPU subsystem is larger than the value of CPU Threshold for
Schedule Assign Out, perform the reconfiguration as follows:
1.

If a single SPU subsystem is configured with several NodeBs, transfer some NodeBs
served by this SPU subsystem to other SPU subsystems.

2.

Do not transfer part of cells under a NodeB to other SPU subsystems unless the
SPU subsystem serves only one NodeB and the CPU usage of that SPU subsystem is
higher than the value of CPU Threshold for Schedule Assign Out.

Procedure
Step 1 Run the SET UCELLAUTOHOMING command to start the scheduled task. In this step, set
Schedule Homing Switch to ON and Schedule Homing Mode to MANUAL.
Step 2 If the loads of SPU subsystems in the BSC6900 are unbalanced, the BSC6900 reports
ALM-22240 Inappropriate NodeB Deployment and exports NodeB migration suggestion
scripts to the \ftp\OptMml directory in the active workspace of the OMU.
Step 3 If NodeB distribution needs to be reconfigured, run the RUN BATCHFILE command to
execute the NodeB reparenting scripts.
NOTE

If you need to update the NodeB reparenting scripts are updated based on the actual network condition,
obtain the migration file from the \ftp\OptMml directory in the active workspace of the OMU and then
modify the file as required.

higher than 60%.

For a super NodeB, perform the reconfiguration as follows:


1.

Configure several SPU subsystems for a super NodeB. Use one of them to process
NodeB management services and the NCP or CCP and use other SPU subsystems to
process part of its cell management services.

2.

These SPU subsystems process services only on the planned super NodeB instead of
services of any other super NodeBs.

3.

Those SPU subsystems should belong to the same SPUa/SPUb/SPUc board. Those
SPU subsystems cannot belong to different boards in the same subrack unless all the
subsystems of the SPUa/SPUb/SPUc board are fully loaded. The SPU subsystems can
never belong to different subracks. This prevents traffic surge of inter-subrack
switching data.

For details about how to monitor the CPU usage of an SPU subsystem, see Monitoring Board
CPU/DSP Usage. After the reconfiguration, the CPU usage of the original SPU subsystem
decreases and that of the target SPU subsystem increases. That is, the CPU usage of SPU
subsystems approaches the average CPU usage.

About This Chapter


This chapter describes how to reconfigure interfaces in the case of capacity expansion,
reconfiguration, and network cutover.

Context
In IP networking mode, it is recommended that two or more physical ports be configured on the
Iu interface (Iu-CS interface, Iu-PS interface, and Iur interface) to enhance reliability.
l

If signaling messages and service messages are transmitted on different physical ports, it
is recommended that signaling messages and service messages be respectively transmitted
on two or more physical ports. (The active and standby ports are considered as one port.)

If two or more subracks are configured on a BSC, it is recommended that physical ports
on the Iu interface (Iu-CS interface, Iu-PS interface, and Iur interface) be configured in
different subracks.

If only one subrack is configured on a BSC, it is recommended that physical ports on the
Iu interface (Iu-CS interface, Iu-PS interface, and Iur interface) be configured on different
boards. (The active and standby boards are considered as one board.)

9.1 Interface Capacity Expansion


This section describes how to expand the capacity of configured interfaces, excluding the
procedure for configuring newly added interfaces. For details about how to configure the newly
added interfaces, see BSC6900 UMTS Initial Configuration Guide.

Context
Transmission capacity expansion consists of three phases: evaluating transmission load,
designing the capacity expansion scheme, and implementing the capacity expansion scheme.
The first two phases are described in Huawei professional service documentation. This section
describes only how to implement the capacity expansion scheme.
In addition, transmission capacity expansion can refer to the expansion of the physical layer,
data link layer, control plane, user plane. Users can expand the capacity of a single layer or all
layers as required. Detailed information is described in Huawei professional service
documentation.

9.1.1 Iu-CS Interface Capacity Expansion


When the in-use transmission resources over the Iu-CS interface are insufficient due to an
increasing traffic volume, capacity expansion over the Iu-CS interface is required.

9.1.1.1 Iu-CS Interface Capacity Expansion (in ATM Transmission Mode)


This section describes how to expand the capacity over the Iu-CS interface in ATM transmission
mode.

Prerequisites
l

Before expanding the capacity, collect information listed in Table 9-1.

information

Plan information about the Ethernet port.

Control plane
information

SCTP link data planning, including the application type, work mode,
local IP address, and peer IP address, must be complete.

If Ethernet ports are added to the existing Ethernet trunk group, all
attributes of the added Ethernet ports must be the same as those of the
existing Ethernet ports in the Ethernet trunk group. If they are not the
same, run the SET ETHPORT command to set the attributes of the
added Ethernet ports.

M3UA signaling link data planning, including subrack No., slot No.,
SCTP link ID, SCTP link No., and M3UA link name, must be complete.
User plane

Plan the SIP information (IP Address in Transmission Resource


Pool in the ADD IPPOOLIP command).
If the local IP address of the transmission resource pool in the original
IP pool is DEVIP, the capacity expansion can be performed only by
adding a device IP.
If the local IP address of the transmission resource pool in the original
IP pool is ETHIP or ETHTRKIP, the capacity expansion can be
implemented only by adding an ETHIP or ETHTRKIP.

Prerequisites
l

Network planning has been complete.


Network planning is performed to plan the data throughput in IP pool transmission mode,
the interface board type, quantity, and backup mode, the Ethernet IP or trunk IP, and
whether the interface board is configured with active/standby gateway and VLAN.
Contact Huawei technical support to obtain the detailed network design scheme.

Hardware requirement
The FG2c/GOUc/GOUe board has been configured.

Software requirement
The transmission equipment has been enabled with dynamic routing protocols.
Alternatively, a static route has been configured from the transmission equipment to the
IP address of the transmission resource pool for the base station controller.
The IP route from the peer NE to the base station controller has been configured.

License requirement
The license controlling the transmission resource pool for the RNC's Iu-CS interface
has been activated.

Context

NOTICE
1. Changing the transmission mode over the Iub interface to IP pool interrupts BSC6900
services. Therefore, perform this operation when the traffic is light, for example, during early
morning hours.
2. You are advised to make configuration scripts in advance before reconfiguration and use the
batch configuration to shorten the service interruption duration.
The BSC transmission resource pool is also called IP pool.
Only the FG2c/GOUc/GOUe board supports IP pool transmission mode.
When the BSC6900 has been connected to the core network (CN) devices of multiple operators
in ATM or IP transmission mode and you want to configure the IP pool networking mode on
the Iu-CS interface, the networking modes of the BSC6900 and the CN devices of the same
operator must be configured to the IP pool networking mode. The BSC6900 can only be
connected to all the CN devices of the same operator in either ATM or IP transmission mode.
When the IP pool networking mode is configured on the Iu-CS Interface, multiple interface
boards form a resource pool that connects to the circuit service (CS) domain, as shown in Figure
9-3. The IP pool networking mode has the following advantages:
l

Increases board and port utilization.

Simplifies transmission capacity expansion for the BSC6900.

Implements capacity expansion or reconfiguration of a peer NE such as NRNC, MGW,


SGSN, and GGSN without modifying the transmission data configured on the BSC6900
side.

Context
Information described in this section will be included in the subsequent professional service for
project delivery.
When an originating signaling point code (OPC) or destination signaling point code (DPC)
changes, the Equipment Serial Number (ESN) of the BSC changes. The ESN of the BSC is
bound to a license. Therefore, apply for a new BSC license and activate it upon any changes of
the ESN.
Changing the connection between the BSC and the MSC is categorized into three types by the
transmission mode over the Iu-CS interface, as listed in Table 9-27.
