1. What is SDR
1.1 Challenge in the Development of Communication Technology
With the increasing communication demands, new technologies come out in succession. The common concern for communication operators and equipment suppliers is how to upgrade equipment more flexibly and protect the investment of operators to greatest extent in the continuous technology updates. The SDR concept is proposed for this problem.

1.2 SDR Concept


The software defined radio (SDR) is defined as radio in which some or all of the physical layer functions are software defined. The traditional communication equipment, namely the hardware radio (HR), functions through the hardware. Therefore, functions are often improved by upgrading the equipment. SDR uses the hardware as a general processing platform and functions through the software. Thus, it provides a more flexible and low-cost solution. It also supports multiple systems, bands, and functions through the software.

2. ZTE SDR Solution


Now we have known what SDR technology is. Lets take a look at SDR products. First, read the following news: On the just-concluded 2008 broadband world forum (BBWF), B8200 and R8860, the innovative SDR products of ZTE, stood out from various solutions, winning the InfoVision award issued by IEC. BBWF, hosted by IEC, is an authorized grant event of the global broadband industry. The InfoVision award is designed for commending those significant technologies, applications, products, innovations, and services with special meaning and value in the Telecom industry. The awardees include enterprises and individuals that have developed innovative technologies and made great contributions to the society. Once again, ZTE boasts its leadership in the radio technology field by winning the top-level award with the innovative SDR product. (www.sina.com) However, how can ZTE SDR products (ZXSDR) receive such a honor?

2.1 Why to Select ZXSDR Series BTS


ZTE SDR serial BTS are a brand-new series of radio products designed and produced by ZTE. They use the advanced SDR technology and their hardware
T A structure is based on the uniform C

platform of ZTE, innovatively

supporting multiple radio access methods, including GSM, UMTS, CDMA2000, and WiMAX. In addition, SDR can be smoothly evolved into the Enhanced EDGE/LTE.
Currently, the GSM networking mainly uses three types of SDR BTS: the first is indoor macro BTS, such as ZXSDR B8800 GU306; the second is outdoor macro BTS, such as ZXSDR B8900 GU306; the third is distributed BTS in which BBU is at the local end and RU is at the remote end (RRU), such as ZXSDR B8200 GU360 + ZXSDR B8860 GU906/GU186. For the structure, see Figure 2.1-2.

Figure 2.1-2 Distributed BTS

Compared with the traditional BTS, SDR has the following features aside from supporting multiple systems such as GSM and UMTS.

2.1.1 High-integrity
Based on the All-IP transmission structure. Support RU of multiple bands. BBU supports 60TRX, and RU supports 6TRX/2TRX. RU60 board supports 6TRX, and RU02 board supports 2TRX.

One fiber supports 24 TRXs. 2G supports a maximum capacity of S666666 or S12/12/12; 3G supports a maximum of 12CS; the dual mode supports a maximum of S333 + S666 (GSM + UMTS).

Support the smooth evolution to LTE and HSPA+

2.2 Main Differences Between ZXSDR and Traditional 2G BTS


ZXSDR features are described above. Now let's take a look at the main differences between ZXSDR and traditional 2G BTS.

2.2.1 uTCA-based
uTCA is the abbreviation of the Micro TCA that is the short form of the advanced Telecom computing architecture (ATCA). As a standard open architecture, uTCA provides options for communication system design on various components of different handovers, ports, protocols and functions, system architecture, redundancy and high availability.

Introduction to ZXSDR Products Internal Use Only

2.2.2 BBU+RRU Architecture


The separation between baseband and RF can maximize their own advantages. The baseband can obtain the maximum integrity, while RF focuses on the maximization of its own power and efficiency. Therefore, the networking is more flexible. After the separation, the baseband part is called base band unit (BBU), while the RF part is called remote radio unit (RRU). Their functions are displayed as shown in Figure 2.2-3.

Figure 2.2-3 Separated Structure of Baseband and RF

BTS is divided into BBU and RRU. One BBU can provide baseband resources for multiple RRU. Functions of BBU and RRU are as follows: BBU is responsible for digital baseband signal handling and control management. RRU is responsible for handovers between digital baseband signals and analog signals between RRU and antenna. BBU is connected to RRU through the baseband-to-RF interface, and it transmits I/Q digital baseband signals and OAM signaling data. To ensure the real-time transmission, the interface should be an optical interface physically. BBU is connected to BSC/RNC through the Abis/Iub interface. RRU accesses MS/UE through the Um/Uu interface.

Note: besides the distributed BTS ZXSDR B8200 GU360 + ZXSDR B8860 GU906/GU186 (see Figure 2.1-2), the baseband and RF of all ZXSDR BTS are separated. The so-called SDR macro BTS means BBU and RU within a cabinet. It is still two independent units physically. In addition, BBU in macro Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION.

Introduction to ZXSDR Products Internal Use Only BTS BS8800 and BS8900 uses B8820 directly.

2.2.3 Introduction to OMCB


A traditional 2G BTS (such as BTSV2 and BTSV3) is configured and managed through OMCR, while the configurations of a SDR BTS should be performed on LMT or OMCB. OMCR is used to configure some radio data. The operate and maintenant center for NoedB (OMCB) is the O&M unit that manages NodeB in the 3GPP. As a dual-mode product supporting GSM and 3G, SDR also supports OMCB. The single-threaded link OMCR BSC BTS is changed into the dual-threaded link OMCB BTS and OMCR BSC BTS. For BTS, an upper level is added, as shown in Figure 2.2-4.

OMCR

RNC

SDR

Figure 2.2-4 SDR Network Management Structure

Based on the management mode of WCDMA, the board management, configuration, software downloading, alarm of all SDRs are implemented on OMCB. For the dual mode, GSM O&M are transferred to OMCB, while OMCR only manages the GSM-related radio configuration and status management. This is the difference for OMCR in SDR environment.

2.2.4 IP Abis Interface


The other major difference for a SDR BTS from a traditional 2G BTS is that the Abis/Iub uses IP protocol. Its physical bearer can be FE/GE or E1/T1 (IP over E1/T1), but not the E1/T1 of TDM. If E1/T1 is used, BTS can fully use the Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION.

Introduction to ZXSDR Products Internal Use Only existing transmission equipment to save the user investment; if FE/GE is used, BTS will obtain more bandwidth, which is oriented to the communication system evolution to all IP.

2.2.5 Multi-carrier Combination


The multi-carrier combination (MCUM) is the product of the introduction of 3G OTSR into the GSM system. To satisfy the complicated coverage requirements and special applications of high-speed movement (such as high-speed railway and freeway), the SDR can cover a single cell using antennas of different angles at different positions, that is, the multi-carrier combination coverage. Use the RRU to solve the problems such as antenna feeder and repeater. When multiple RRU downlink signals are the same, the uplink will select and combine one of these signals. Error: Reference source not found is an example of the multi-carrier combination application and high-speed railway. Because each cell is covered by multiple antennas in different positions, the coverage distance of the cell along the railway is increased significantly, thus effectively reduce the voice problems caused by inter-cell handovers.

Figure 2.2-5 Multi-carrier Combination Application

2.3 ZXSDR BTSs


As mentioned above, the current GSM networking mainly uses three types of SDR BTS: the first is the indoor macro BTS, such as ZXSDR B8800 GU306; Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION.

Introduction to ZXSDR Products Internal Use Only the second is the outdoor macro BTS, such as ZXSDR B8900 GU306; the third is the distributed BTS (a BTS type that the BBU is at the local end, while the RU is at the remote end (RRU)), such as ZXSDR B8200 GU360 + ZXSDR R8860 GU906/GU186. For the structure. Now we will give a brief introduction for the B8200, R8860, BS8800, and BS8900 respectively.

2.3.1 ZXSDR B8200


ZXSDR B8200 system description ZXSDR B8200 GU360 is a dual-mode baseband unit based on the uTCA platform.

2.4 Conditions for the Subscription of SDR


Now we have a preliminary concept of the SDR. Lets take a look at the conditions for the subscription of the SDR. The iBSC needs an IP interface board IPBB (the physical board is BIPI (100 M) or GIPI (Gigabit)) to provide the FE interfaces for the SDRs of the OMCB and FE Abis. If the Abis interface is E1/T1, the DTB and EUIP (the physical board is EIPI) should be configured as the interface board of the IP over E1/T1. The iBSC version should be iBSCV6.20 or later. The iSMG version should be iSMGV6.20 or later. The NetNumen version should be MinosV6.10.410d or later.

3. ZTE SDR Networking


Now we know so many advantages of the SDR, but how to use the SDR? In this chapter, we will learn this point, including networking, installation, and commissioning. Lets start with the SDR networking. Each network shows different networking figures at different angles. So does the SDR BTS networking. Lets learn the SDR networking from three angles: Abis networking interface, BSC/BBU/RRU topology, and the O&M network management of the SDR.

3.1 From the Angle of Abis Interface


Currently, the SDR BTS only supports the IP Abis interface. Its physical bearer can be FE/GE or E1/T1 (IP over E1/T1), but can not be the TDM E1/T1. When the FE/GE is used, the networking of the SDR and BSC is as shown in Figure 3.1-1. This networking can obtain more transmission bandwidth.

3.2 From the Angle of Network Topology


The network topology of the SDR can be categorized into the networking of BBU and RNC/BSC and the networking of BBU and RRU.

3.2.1 Networking of BBU and RNC/BSC


The networking of BBU and RNC/BSC is categorized into star and chain, as shown in Figures 3.2-1 and 3.2-2. The networking of the SDR macro BTS B8800/B8900 and RNC/BSC is the same as that of the BBU and RNC/BSC. For the star networking, the BSC/RNC in each site will introduce n transmission links directly, and all the BTS equipment on each site are the end equipment. See Figure 3.2-1. The star networking features simple networking, convenient maintenance and engineering, less processes for signals, and high reliability of the line. However, the star networking demands the most transmission lines compared with other networks.

Chain networking The chain networking is used for band-distributed, low line density areas, such as freeways and railways. Theoretically, the B8200 supports fivelevel cascades. However, to avoid the deterioration of the clock performance, the number of BTS cascades in the chain networking should not higher than level 4, as shown in Figure 3.2-2. The chain networking can save a lot of transmission equipment. But because the signals should pass many processes, the line is reliable.

3.3.1 Networking Sample
Remember what is OMCB? In the above chapter, we know that the difference between the SDR and the traditional 2G BTS is that the SDR BTS has two network managements: one is OMCR, the other is OMCB. Most of the operations are performed on the OMCB. See Figure 2.2-2 if you can not recall it. In the actual networking, the OMCB and OMCR can be installed on two independent servers, or be integrated into a network management (iSMG) and installed in a server (SBCX). How the OMCB communicates with the SDR then? Networking Description When the OMCB and OMCR are deployed in combination, they are still two independent network management units logically. They are just installed on the SBCX board physically. Then, the iBSC should provide two sets of IP interfaces which will be connected to the SDR BTS and OMCB server; the iBSC should be configured with a virtual address (RPU interface address). The networking is shown in Error: Reference source not found. The connection between the SDR and BSC: for physical E1 access, the interface board at SDR side is the SA, while the interface board at BSC side is DTB (should work with EUIP to implement the IP access); For FE/GE access, the interface board at SDR side is CC, while the Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION.

4. ZXSDR Series BTS Hardware Installation


This chapter describes the BTS installation of the SDT. As the macro BTS installation of the SDR is the same as that of other macro BTSs, no more detailed will be given here. But it is easy and flexible to install the distributed BTS, because its volume is small and its BBU is separated from the RRU.

4.1.1 B8200 Hardware Installation


ZXSDR B8200 is a 19-inch standard cabinet. It features compact size and easy installation. It supports several installation methods: indoor stand installation (19-inch rack, also called gantry support), wall installation, pole installation, and outdoor installation. The most common installation is to use the existing or new indoor floor stand, which is a 19-inch rack. Besides B8200, it can be installed with other stand equipment such as a router. In wall installation, install the cabinet ZXSDR BC8180 and then the B8200. The internal structure of the ZXSDR BC8180 is similar to the installation structure of the indoor floor stand. That is, the ZXSDR BC8180 is a small indoor floor structure. For its appearance, see Figure 3.3-1. And for its internal structure, see Figure 3.3-2.

Introduction to ZXSDR Products Internal Use Only SDR hardware installation includes SDR equipment installation and cable connection. BSC installation debugging includes hardware installation, background software installation, BSC data configuration, version management, connection of A and Gb interfaces, and service test. The background network management must be installed in the OMCR+OMCB (the iSMGV6.20 supports this). OMCR data configuration is the data configuration related to the SDR at the BSC side. It falls into four parts: BSC global resource setting, board configuration of the Abis interface, IP interface configuration, and radio parameter configuration of the SDR site. The OMCB is the operation and maintenance center of the SDR BTS. With it, you can configure SDR data and remotely maintain the SDR in the commissioning. LMT local debugging refers to connect the debugger to the SDR and configure local data through the LMT software. You can use the LMT to configure transmission-related information (such as IP address and route), physical information (such as board and topology relation), and partial radio information (such as band and central frequency ). You can also use it to manage the SDR version. Synchronization between the foreground and the background refers to transconfigure the data configured on the SDR at the foreground side to the OMCB at the background side, or synchronize the data configured on the OMCB at the background side to the SDR at the foreground side after link establishment between the foreground and the background. Before link establishment between the foreground and the background, the following four prerequisites must be satisfied: The transmission network runs normally. SDR interface-related parameters are correctly configured on the OMCR. SDR management NE is correctly created on the OMCB. Transmission parameters are correctly configured through the LMT.

Figure 5.1-2 Link Establishment Between the Foreground and Background Requires Cooperation of Four Prerequisites

Note that LMT configurations are the same as OMCB configurations. When the SDR is subscribed, configure the data of the BSC side on the OMCR in one of the following two ways: 1. a. configure all data through the OMCB. b. configure SDR transmission parameters through the LMT. c. establish a link between the SDR and the OMCB. d. synchronize the data configured on the OMCB to the SDR. 2. a. configure all data though the LMT. b. create a SDR management NE on the OMCB. c. establish a link between the OMCB and the SDR. d. Transconfigure the SDR data to the OMCB. But the first method is recommended. The following sections simply describe main steps of this debugging method.
