Principles for RNC Integration


1.

Integrate the control plane first, and then the user plane.

2.

Integrate the control plane and the user plane in the bottom-up order on the protocol
stack.

Preparation for RNC Integration


Check of Hardware
1.

RNC has been installed and powered on, and is running normally.

2.

RNC has been connected with the interfaces involved in the integration physically.

3.

NodeB has been installed and powered on, and is running normally.

Check of Data Configuration


1.

Related integration parameters have been obtained and data configuration of RNC
has finished.

2.

Data configuration of NodeB has finished.

1.8

Parameter
Integration

1.8.1

SPC Conversion

Conversion

Related

with

RNC

SPC provided by the operator is usually in the format: X-Y (X stands for SSF, and Y
stands for SPC), and the SPC mode (14 bit or 24 bit) will also be specified. When
configure data, we should convert Y into a decimal coding. If the SPC mode is 14 bit, we
will convert it into 3-8-3 mode; if it is 24 bit, we will convert it to 8-8-8 mode.
For example: In the RNC integration of Yanji Unicom in Jilin province, the SPC of
Ericssons MGW is 3-2052 (14 bit), which means SSF=3, SPC=2052, and the SPC mode
is 24 bit.
1.

SSF has 2 bits, and its value is between 0-3. The meaning of each value is shown in
Table 1-2.

Internal Use Only

From the above table, if SSF=3, SPC is reserved for national use.

1.8.2

2.

The SPC mode is 14 bit, so it should be converted to 3-8-3 mode.

3.

SPC=2052, which is a hexadecimal coding. We should convert it to a binary digit


first which is 10000001010010, and then according to the 3-8-3 mode, divide it to
001-00000000-100 (If there are less than three digits at the first part, add 0). Finally,
convert each segment into decimal number; the result is 1.0.4.

ATM Address Conversion


ATM takes the address formats as follows.

The commonly used format is E164 at present.


ZTEs M31 supports E164 and NSAP formats, and NASP is the default one.
For example:
If the RNC ATM address provided by the operator is in E164 format: 070320000000000,
then we need to convert it to the NSAP format.
The AFI of the E614 format is 45, which is a hexadecimal number. Put it before
070320000000000, we can get 45070320000000000. And then divide it at two-digit
interval from left to right. If the last segment has only one digit, put an F at the end, for
example 45.07.03.20.00.00.00.00.0F. Finally, convert each two-digit segment into a
decimal number. The result is the ATM address in NSAP format, which is
69.07.03.32.00.00.00.00.15.

1.8.3

PVC Bandwidth Unit Conversion


Usually the bandwidth unit is cps at the CN side, and ZTE uses kpbs in data configuration
at the RNC side. The ATM cell has 53 bytes, therefore 1 cps = 1*53*8 bps = 424 bps =
0.424 Kbps.

Office route query

The status of adjacent office signaling point can also be queried by tracing the
signaling of the MTP3B layer in the RNC. In the normal state, you can see the RNC
send the SLTM message, the MGW reply with the SLTA message, and the MGW
send the SLTM message, the RNC replies with the SLTA message. That means the
transmission at the MTP3B layer is unblocked, and the adjacent office signaling
point is reachable.
