The functions of the baseband subsystem are implemented by LTE baseband processing units (LBBPs). The baseband subsystem performs the functions for the user plane of the Uu interface, including uplink and downlink scheduling and data processing. In addition, this subsystem provides the common public radio interface (CPRI) for communication between BBU3900 and radio frequency (RF) units. l Based on the uplink scheduling instruction, the uplink processing module receives data over uplink channels, demodulates and decodes the data, assembles the data into packets, and then transmits the data to the mobility management entity (MME) or serving gateway (S-GW) through the transport subsystem. In addition, the module performs measurements on uplink channels. Based on the downlink scheduling instruction, the downlink processing module assembles the data received from the transport subsystem into packets, encodes and modulates the data, performs multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) processing, and then transmits the signals over the CPRI interface. The CPRI interface is used for transmission of data between BBU3900 and RF units.

Power and Environment Monitoring Subsystem


The functions of the power and environment monitoring subsystem are implemented by the universal power and environment interface unit (UPEU) and environment monitoring units. The power and environment monitoring subsystem performs the following functions: l l l Supplies power to BBU3900. Monitors the power status of BBU3900. Provides ports for connections to environment monitoring units and receives and forwards signals from the environment monitoring units.

4.2 Logical Structure of Radio Frequency Units


A radio frequency (RF) unit consists of logical components such as the common public radio interface (CPRI) module, transceiver (TRX), power module, power amplifier (PA), low noise amplifier (LNA), filter, and circulator. An RF unit can be an remote radio unit (RRU) or radio frequency unit (RFU). An RFU is a radio frequency unit, which is used for a macro eNodeB. RFUs modulate and demodulate baseband signals and RF signals, process data, amplify power, and detect standing waves. An RRU is a remote radio unit. One or more RRUs constitute the RF part of a distributed eNodeB. RRUs modulate and demodulate baseband signals and RF signals, process data, amplify power, and detect standing waves.

5 Environment Monitoring Principles

Ports on a UPEU

Environment Monitoring Principles

This chapter describes environment monitoring principles for eNodeBs. Environment monitoring detects the following environmental conditions of an eNodeB: temperature, humidity, water damage, smoke, unauthorized access, and power distribution faults. To implement environment monitoring, the eNodeB is equipped with environment monitoring devices and configured with external environment alarms, including Boolean alarms and an environment monitoring unit type A (EMUA) alarm.

The universal power and environment interface unit (UPEU) is a mandatory board of an eNodeB. It is configured in slot 18 or 19 in BBU3900. A UPEU provides two EXT-ALM ports and two MON ports for connections to environment monitoring devices. The ports are described as follows: l Each EXT-ALM port supports four Boolean inputs. The two ports are used for connections to Boolean signal sensors and to dry contacts in a cabinet. The EXT-ALM ports can be connected to the environment monitoring ports, including the alarm port and in-position signal port, on a +24 V DC/DC power subrack in a BTS3900 cabinet. In this way, status of power supply units (PSUs) is monitored. The EXT-ALM ports can also be used for eight Boolean inputs from sensors, such as a door status sensor and water sensor. In this solution, data configuration is required. For example, door status and water damage alarms must be defined for the eNodeB. l Each MON port supports one RS485 monitoring signal input. The two ports are used for connections to environment monitoring devices inside and outside a cabinet. A MON port can be connected to an environment monitoring device in a cabinet. The type of the device varies depending on the type of the cabinet. For example, an APM30H cabinet is equipped with a central monitoring unit type A (CMUA) for centralized monitoring of environment in the APM30H cabinet. The CMUA provides ports for connections to the door status sensor and smoke sensor and also provides a port used for three Boolean signal inputs. Signals of environmental alarms detected by the sensors connected to the CMUA are processed directly by the LMPT. Therefore, no data configuration is required. A MON port can also be connected to an EMUA, which is an environment monitoring device outside an APM30H cabinet, for centralized monitoring of environment outside the APM30H cabinet.

eNodeB Technical Description

5 Environment Monitoring Principles

The EMUA is 1 U high. It can be installed in a 19-inch-wide rack or cabinet with its depth exceeding 300 mm. The EMUA provides dedicated ports for connections to sensors such as door status, smoke, water, temperature, and humidity sensors. In addition, the EMUA provides extended ports for 32 Boolean and analog signal inputs. If the EMUA is used to monitor environment outside a cabinet, data configuration is required. If the dedicated ports on the EMUA are insufficient for environment monitoring, the extended ports can be used and related data configuration is required. The alarm monitoring devices connected to the UPEU are collectively called peer alarm devices in the subsequent sections. The devices can be dry contacts, sensors, and EMUAs.

Connections to EXT-ALM Ports


The type of the cable connected to an EXT-ALM port varies depending on the type of the peer alarm device. l If the peer alarm device is a +24 V DC/DC power subrack in a cabinet, two signal cables are required. For details about how to install the cables, see the DBS3900 Installation Guide. Connect one end of an in-position signal cable for the PSU (DC/DC) to the EXT-ALM0 port and the other end to the in-position signal port on the power subrack. Connect one end of a monitoring signal cable for the PSU (DC/DC) to the EXT-ALM1 port and the other end to the alarm port on the power subrack. l If the peer alarm devices are Boolean signal sensors, add a terminal to one end of a BBU alarm cable by referring to Table 5-1, connect the terminal to a Boolean signal sensor, and then connect the RJ45 connector at the other end of the cable to the EXT-ALM0 or EXTALM1 port.

eNodeB Synchronization Modes

This chapter describes the clock synchronization modes for eNodeBs. Two or more signals reach synchronization if the phase or frequency deviation falls within a specified range at a valid instant. There are two types of synchronization: frequency synchronization and time synchronization. Frequency synchronization means that the frequency of a signal is the same as the reference frequency but the origin of the timescale for the signal does not need to be the same as that for the reference clock. Time synchronization is also referred to as time-of-day synchronization, where the origin of the timescale for a signal needs to be synchronized with the Universal Time Coordinated (UTC). Therefore, time synchronization implies synchronization in absolute time. UTC is a universal timing standard, in which the atomic clock is maintained accurately to ensure time synchronization worldwide, with a precision of microseconds.

The subsequent sections describe reference clocks. For details about clock synchronization, see the Synchronization Feature Parameter Description.

GPS/RGPS Clock
Synchronization with a Global Positioning System (GPS) or Remote Global Positioning System (RGPS) clock requires that each eNodeB be equipped with a GPS or RGPS receiver. Using the receiver, the eNodeB can receive GPS or RGPS clock signals with the precision to microseconds. In synchronization with a GPS or RGPS clock, both frequency synchronization and time synchronization are available. To implement synchronization with an RGPS clock, the eNodeB must be equipped with a universal satellite card and clock unit (USCU).

IEEE 1588 V2 Clock


IEEE 1588 defines the Precision Time Protocol (PTP), which targets synchronization of clocks in the Ethernet, with the precision to microseconds. In synchronization with an IEEE 1588 V2 clock, both frequency synchronization and time synchronization are available. To implement this type of synchronization, eNodeBs must be connected to reference clocks, such as Huawei IPCLK1000.

Clock over IP
Clock over IP is a Huawei proprietary frequency synchronization technology, in which frequency synchronization packets are transmitted over IP. Clock-over-IP signals are transmitted

eNodeB Technical Description

6 eNodeB Synchronization Modes

to eNodeBs based on a server/client architecture. In synchronization with a clock over IP, only frequency synchronization is available, with the frequency accuracy lower than 0.05 parts per million (ppm).

Synchronous Ethernet
The synchronous Ethernet technology has the basic principles that a downstream node traces the upstream clock by recovering clock signals from the serial data bit streams received at the physical layer. In synchronous Ethernet, only frequency synchronization is available, with the frequency accuracy lower than 0.05 ppm.

1 PPS+TOD Clock
In synchronization with a 1 PPS+TOD clock, an eNodeB obtains the 1 PPS signals and Time of Day (TOD) signals to implement time synchronization. The 1 PPS signals are used for time synchronization. The TOD signals are used to transmit the time information, type of the reference clock, and working status of the reference clock. To implement synchronization with a 1 PPS clock, the eNodeB must be equipped with a USCU.

BITS Clock
In synchronization with a building integrated timing supply (BITS) clock, an eNodeB is connected to a BITS synchronization network through the BITS clock card in the eNodeB to obtain frequency synchronization signals. After phase lock and frequency division, the main clock unit in the eNodeB converts the synchronization signals into various types of clock signals required by the eNodeB. To implement synchronization with a BITS clock, the eNodeB must be equipped with a USCU.

E1/T1 Line Clock


In synchronization with an E1/T1 line clock, an eNodeB obtains frequency synchronization signals from the physical layer of E1/T1 lines. This clock synchronization mode is available when S1 data is transmitted over an E1/T1 network. To implement synchronization with an E1/ T1 line clock, the eNodeB must be equipped with a universal transmission processing unit (UTRP).

7 Operation and Maintenance of eNodeBs

7.1 OM Modes
This section describes the operation and maintenance (OM) modes for eNodeBs. eNodeBs support both local and remote operation and maintenance. l l In local OM mode, maintenance personnel use the Local Maintenance Terminal (LMT) to operate and maintain a single eNodeB. In remote OM mode, maintenance personnel use the M2000 or LMT to operate and maintain eNodeBs in a centralized manner in the operation and maintenance center (OMC).

Figure 7-1 OM system of eNodeBs

As shown in Figure 7-1, the OM system of eNodeBs consists of the following elements: l l LMT: is mainly used to assist eNodeB deployment, identify faults, and rectify faults locally. M2000: is Huawei centralized OM system, which consists of the M2000 server and the M2000 client. M2000 can be connected to eNodeBs of different models and versions through an OM network for remote centralized operation and maintenance. This mode is recommended when eNodeBs communicate with M2000 properly. eNodeB: is the object of the operation and maintenance.

The required OM software, as described in Table 7-1, must be installed on maintenance terminals for operation and maintenance of eNodeBs.

7.2 O&M Functions


This section describes the O&M functions of eNodeBs, covering configuration management, fault management, performance management, security management, software management, deployment management, equipment management, and inventory management.

Configuration Management
Configuration management includes data configuration, query, export, backup and restore, and configuration synchronization with the M2000. The data configuration is based on Managed Objects (MOs) of the following categories: device, transport, and service. These categories are independent of each other. Generally, modifications of the service configuration do not require modifications of the device configuration, and modifications of the device configuration do not require modifications of the service configuration either.

Fault Management
Fault management includes fault detection, fault isolation and self-healing, alarm reporting, and alarm correlation. The faults might be related to hardware, environment, software, transmission, cells, and different types of services in cells. l Fault isolation and self-healing bring the following advantages: (1) prevents a fault in some part of an eNodeB from affecting the entire eNodeB. (2) re-establishes a cell of lower specifications to minimize the impact of the fault on services.

eNodeB Technical Description

7 Operation and Maintenance of eNodeBs

The alarm correlation function enables the system to report only the alarm indicating the root fault and the ultimate impact on services though there are chains of problems caused by the root fault.

Performance Management
Performance management includes the periodic control on eNodeB performance measurement and the collection, storage, and reporting of performance statistics. eNodeBs collect performance statistics every 15, 30, or 60 minutes. eNodeBs can store a maximum of three days of performance measurement results. The performance measurement covers eNodeB-level and cell-level performance, neighboring cells, transmission, standard interfaces, and the device usage. eNodeBs support real-time monitoring of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) at intervals of one minute, which helps detect and identify faults in time.

Tracing Management
Message tracing management traces interfaces, signaling links, UEs, and internal messages for routine maintenance, commissioning, and fault diagnosis.

Security Management
Security management provides the eNodeB authentication and access control functions, which include user account management, rights management, login management, identity authentication, and operation authentication. In addition, security management involves security control on the channels between eNodeBs and an element management system (EMS). The channels support encryption using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or IP Security (IPSec). Security management provides network- and user-level security service. It provides the following functions: l l l l Encryption: encryption of important user information Authentication: management of user accounts and authentication of users Access control: control of operation access Security protocol: support for SSL and IPSec

Software Management
Software management includes software version management, software version upgrade, and patch management. l l Software version management involves query, backup, and restore of software versions. Software version upgrade can be performed on a batch of eNodeBs remotely. With the oneclick upgrade wizard provided by the M2000, users can perform health checks before and after the upgrade, and back up, download, and activate the software. During this process, users can check the upgrade status and results. eNodeBs support automatic updates of configurations during upgrades, and users only need to follow the instructions in the upgrade wizard. In addition, eNodeBs support rapid version rollback by running a single command, reducing the impact of upgrade failures on the system.

eNodeB Technical Description

7 Operation and Maintenance of eNodeBs

Patch management includes query, download, loading, activation, deactivation, rollback, confirmation, and removal of patches.

Deployment Management
The eNodeB deployment solutions include board-ready transportation, automatic discovery of eNodeBs, initial configuration by using a USB disk, and remote deployment. These solutions greatly reduce the workload and efforts of field installation personnel. No computer is required. The personnel only need to install the hardware. l l By using automatic discovery of eNodeBs, users do not need to set the IP addresses of the eNodeBs and EMS. Users can download software and data of an eNodeB from a USB disk, thereby saving time especially when the bandwidth of transmission between the eNodeB and the EMS is insufficient. During remote deployment, software commissioning is performed in the operation and maintenance center (OMC) rather than on site. Customers can perform acceptance tests on the eNodeB deployment in the OMC.

Equipment Management
Equipment management includes data configuration, status management, and fault detection and handling for all the devices in an eNodeB. On the device panel, users can view the device status and perform blocking, reset, and switchover.

Inventory Management
Inventory management includes collection and reporting of the inventory information about eNodeBs. With inventory management, users can manage network equipment (NE) assets in the OMC in a centralized manner.

eNodeB Technical Description

8 eNodeB Reliability

8.1 System Reliability


System reliability is ensured by using the following schemes: intra-board baseband resource pool, inter-board cell reestablishment, LMPT cold redundancy, common public radio interface (CPRI) port redundancy, RRU channel cross-connection under multiple-input multiple output (MIMO), operation and maintenance (OM) channel backup, and route backup.

Intra-Board Baseband Resource Pool


Intra-board baseband resource pool is designed to enable dynamic allocation of baseband resources based on the specifications and load status of an LBBP. This increases the usage of baseband resources and improves system reliability. The functions of the baseband resource pool are as follows: l l If all resources of an LBBP are used to serve a single cell, users are allocated different baseband resources in a fair manner based on the baseband load on the LBBP. Full redundancy of intra- or inter-cell baseband resources is achieved. When some baseband resources are unavailable, the associated services can be diverted to other available baseband resources. In this way, the services in the cell can be restored.

Inter-Board Cell Reestablishment


Inter-board cell reestablishment is designed to enable mutual backup between LBBPs. If errors occur in a cell because of the relevant LBBP is faulty, the eNodeB checks whether resources are available on another LBBP that is connected to the RRU providing the cell. If resources meet the relevant conditions, the eNodeB reestablishes the cell on the LBBP that provides available resources. The cell can be restored within 20 seconds.

LMPT Cold Redundancy


Each eNodeB supports LMPT cold redundancy, in which two LMPTs in BBU3900 work in active/standby mode. When the active LMPT experiences a major fault or a user runs the switchover command, an active/standby switchover is performed automatically or manually, respectively. LMPT cold redundancy prevents system collapse caused by LMPT failures and therefore ensures system reliability of eNodeBs. An active/standby switchover, however, interrupts eNodeB services for less than three minutes.

CPRI Port Redundancy


CPRI port redundancy can be classified into hot redundancy and cold redundancy. In hot redundancy of CPRI ports, an RRU is connected to two CPRI ports on different LBBPs to form a hot ring topology. In this topology, two CPRI links transmit identical service data, but the LBBP where the cell is established and the RRU process data on one link only. If a CPRI port is faulty, services are switched over to the other CPRI link, with a maximum interruption time of 500 ms. If the LBBP where the cell is established is faulty, the cell is reestablished on the other LBBP, with a maximum interruption time of 20s.

eNodeB Technical Description

8 eNodeB Reliability

In cold redundancy of CPRI ports, an RRU is connected to two CPRI ports to form a cold ring topology. The two CPRI ports are provided by either one or two LBBPs. In this topology, only one CPRI link transmits service data. If a CPRI port or LBBP is faulty, the cell is reestablished, with an interruption time of shorter than 20s.

RRU Channel Cross-Connection Under MIMO


RRU channel cross-connection under MIMO is implemented by cross-connections of RF jumpers between RRUs/RFUs and antennas and data switching in the connected LBBP. This function improves reliability of the entire network with no requirement for additional hardware. It partially achieves self-healing, preventing permanent failures to provide services in cells caused by faults in a single RRU or RFU. This function is applicable in scenarios where three sectors are configured on three 2T2R RF units. When an RRU or RFU serving a sector fails, the sector is degraded from MIMO to Single Input Single Output (SISO), preventing total service failure in the entire sector. At the same time, another sector using the RRU or RFU is also degraded from MIMO to SISO. After the fault of the RRU or RFU is rectified, the sectors change from SISO back to MIMO automatically. In this way, self-healing is achieved. Figure 8-1 shows the cable connections between RRUs and antennas and data streams. The cable connections and service data flows for RFUs are the same as those for RRUs. Figure 8-1 Cross-connections between RRUs and antennas under MIMO and data streams

eNodeB Technical Description

8 eNodeB Reliability

In the uplink as shown in Figure 8-1, the CPRI ports receive data from RRU 0 and RRU 1. After user plane data of sector 0 is separated from data of the other sectors, the user plane data of sector 0 is sent to the module in the LBBP that processes data of sector 0. In the downlink as shown in Figure 8-1, user plane data of sector 0 in the LBBP is sent through different CPRI ports to RRU 0 and RRU 1. If RRU 0 shown in Figure 8-1 is faulty, user plane data of sector 0 can be exchanged through RRU 1.

l l

OM Channel Backup
An OM channel, also called OM interface, connects an eNodeB and the M2000. OM channel backup enhances reliability. The M2000 detects channel connectivity by employing the handshake mechanism at the application layer, and the eNodeB checks channel connectivity based on results of handshakes with the M2000. If the M2000 detects that the active channel is disconnected, the M2000 initiates a channel switchover through the standby channel, instructing the eNodeB to perform the switchover. The eNodeB automatically switches from the route for the active channel to the route for the standby channel.

Route Backup
Route backup enhances transmission reliability. Primary and secondary routes are two routes with the same destination address but different next-hop IP addresses. The primary/secondary roles of two routes are determined by route priorities. A high priority represents the primary route, and a low priority represents the secondary route. An eNodeB selects a reachable route and, if both routes are reachable, the primary route to send packets. Figure 8-2 shows an example of route backup. In the figure, the IP addresses are port IP addresses. Figure 8-2 Route backup

8.2 Hardware Reliability


Hardware reliability is ensured by the anti-misinsertion design of boards, overtemperature protection, reliable power supply, and surge protection design.

eNodeB Technical Description

8 eNodeB Reliability

Anti-misinsertion Design of Boards


When a board of one type is inserted into a slot for another type of board, the board cannot connect to the backplane. This protects the equipment from damage.

Overtemperature Protection
When the temperature near the power amplifier (PA) in an RF unit of an eNodeB is too high, the eNodeB generates overtemperature alarms and immediately shuts down the PA. This protects PA from damage caused by overtemperature.

Reliable Power Supply


The reliable power supply is achieved using the following techniques: l l l l Support for wide-range voltages and surge protection Power failure protection for programs and data Protection of power supply against overvoltage, overcurrent, and reverse connection of positive and negative poles on boards Support for a maximum configuration of two UPEUs in an eNodeB to provide 1+1 redundancy

Surge Protection Design


Surge protection is applied to AC and DC power ports and various input and output signal ports such as E1/T1 and FE/GE ports of eNodeBs.

8.3 Software Reliability


Software reliability is ensured by the redundancy of important files, data, and boards and by the powerful tolerance of software errors.

Redundancy
To ensure proper operation of the eNodeB when errors occur in these files and data, the eNodeB provides the following redundancy functions: l Redundancy of software versions: An eNodeB stores software versions, including the BootROM version, in different areas to provide redundancy. If a current version is abnormal, the eNodeB switches to the backup version. Redundancy of data configuration files: An eNodeB stores data configuration files in different areas to provide redundancy. If a current file is damaged, the eNodeB can continue working properly by loading the backup file. Redundancy of boards: Two boards of the same type can work in active/standby mode. When the active board fails or is faulty, the standby board takes over, ensuring proper operation of the eNodeB.

Error Tolerance Capability


When software errors occur, the eNodeB will not collapse, because of its self-healing capability. The software error tolerance covers the following aspects:

eNodeB Technical Description

8 eNodeB Reliability

Scheduled checks of key resources: The eNodeB performs occupancy checks on software resources. If resource hang-up occurs in an eNodeB due to software errors, the eNodeB can release the unavailable resources and export logs and alarms. Task monitoring: When software is running, the eNodeB checks for internal software errors and some hardware faults by monitoring processes and tasks. When an error occurs, an alarm is reported and self-healing measures are taken to restore the task. Data check: The eNodeB performs scheduled or event-triggered data consistency checks and restores data consistency selectively or preferentially. In addition, the eNodeB generates related logs and alarms. Watchdog: The eNodeB can detect software errors by using software and hardware watchdogs. When an error is detected, the eNodeB resets automatically.
