1.1

Integrating AXC to Iub


Purpose
After you have installed and commissioned AXC, you have to integrate it to the Iub to
ensure that all necessary connections between the BTS and the Radio Network Controller (RNC) are functioning properly.
Before you start
Check that you have the necessary integration information available.
Steps

Check the hardware configuration.


Make sure that no changes have occurred to the hardware configuration since AXC was
commissioned. Check that all installed plug-in units are visible in the hardware view and
the unit types are correct for each slot.

Check the software configuration.


Check the software version running in AXC by clicking Node Software. You can see
the active and inactive software versions in the Node Software window.

Check the physical line connections.


In the Hardware view, click View Refresh Alarms. If any physical layer alarms are
displayed, check the transmission lines towards the neighbouring nodes. Connect the
transmission cables. If there is a proper signal on the line, the alarms will disappear.
If the AXC is integrated into a WCDMA BTS, the WSCA status LED should turn green.
If the LED does not turn green, check that synchronisation is set up correctly (the tested
interface should be the active synchronisation source) and that the interface is set to
unlocked and enabled in the Radio Network Controller (RNC). If this does not help, and
the LED stays red and the LOS alarms are not cancelled, check that the TX/RX cables
on the IFU are connected correctly.

Check the external interface settings.


Check the interface settings in the Hardware view by selecting each interface in turn and
clicking Modify....
For SDH/SONET interfaces check that the interfaces have been taken into use and that
the laser is on.
For PDH interfaces check that the interfaces have been taken into use.
For Ethernet interfaces, check that the interface has been taken into use and that transport address settings are correct.
Click View Refresh Alarms and check that no alarms appear for the connected
interfaces.

Integrating the AXC

Integrating and Configuring AXC

Check the internal interface settings.


Check the connections to each WAM unit using private ping. Connect to the AXC with a
web browser and ping each WAM in turn and wait for the response. For instructions, see
Accessing AXC with web browser in Troubleshooting the AXC.
Check the connections to the master WAM unit using public ping. Ping the master WAM
using the public IP address.
Note that this is possible only if the base station has been commissioned.

Check IMA settings.


Click Configuration IMA... and check that all configured (IMA) groups are present,
in use and operational.
Select the Links pane and check that the IMA links are associated with the correct interfaces according to the commissioning information.
Select the Performance pane and check that the tolerated differential delay is set to 25
ms (default value).

Configure the required ATM cross-connections in Dual and ATM Iub with AXCF.
Configure the following ATM interfaces between each WCDMA BTS and RNC.
In ATM and Dual Iub mode below ATM cross connections are required:
a) minimum required connections when BTS AAL2 Multiplexing is used (5 ATM connections):
ATM connections per BTS cabinet:
1 VC for Operation and Maintenance (UBR, AAL5)
1 VC for NBAP-C (CBR, AAL5, terminated on Telecom Master
WAM/WSMF)
1 VC for NBAP-D (CBR, AAL5, terminated on Telecom Master
WAM/WSMF)
1 VC for AAL2 user traffic (CBR, second VCC required if first is fully loaded)
1 VC for AAL2 signalling (CBR, AAL5)
When BTS AAL2 Multiplexing is used, you can increase the number of AAL2 user
traffic VCCs according to traffic load calculations. With release AXC C6.0 AXC is
configured with one NBAP-C and one NBAP-D link. No NBAP-D links are required
for each active WAM.
Note that ATM configuration is not needed in IP Iub transport mode.

Check the Network Time Protocol (NTP) server.


Click IP System time... and check that all configured NTP servers, server ports and
their IP addresses are visible in the list. For more information, see Creating NTP server
in Commissioning AXC.

Integrating the AXC

Check the IP configuration.


Click IP Settings... and check that the IP interfaces, OSPF areas, IP routes, DHCP
configurations and BTS IP settings have been created according to the commissioning
information.

10

Check the synchronization source.


Click Configuration Synchronization... and check that all the configured Recovered
Clock Sources are visible in the list. Check that the incoming interface is at priority level
1, and if not, modify the priority settings.
Expected outcome
Connections between the network elements in the Iub interface are operational.

1.2

Integrating AXC to NetAct


Purpose
AXC can be remotely managed from NetAct network management system after it has
been integrated to the NetAct Operations and Maintenance (O&M) connection.
From release AXC C6.0 the NWI3 interface between AXC and NetAct is a secured interface. AXC uses SSLIOP protocol for secure NWI3 interface and Bidirectional IIOP for
both secure and insecure NWI3 interface. The Secure NWI3 feature is a licensed feature
but license is stored in RNC. As a default, the AXC assumes a valid license and creates
secure NWI3 connections. AXC disables the secure NWI3 communication in case there
is no secure communication towards the RNC due to a missing license.
Only the configurations that need to be established for AXC are explained in detail here.
Please refer to the Integrating 3G BTS to NetAct document delivered with NetAct documentation for more information on how to integrate AXC network elements to NetAct.
Before you start
Check that:

the AXC has been commissioned


all necessary parameters are available

Steps
1

Configure the Management Protocol settings with AXC Manager.


For more information, see Configuring Management Protocol for Secure/Unsecured
LDAP connection in Commissioning AXC. If AXC has been commissioned automatically
by downloading an XML file, no additional settings have to be configured as these
parameters are included in the XML configuration file.

Define the IP configuration.


Ensure there is a route from the AXC to the NetAct server. For more information, see
Creating IP routes with AXCF/IFUH in Commissioning AXC.

Transfer the commissioning settings to NetAct's Site Configuration Tool (SCT).


For more information, see Integrating 3G BTS to NetAct in NetAct documentation.

Configure Domain Name Service (DNS) and network views in NetAct.


For more information, see Integrating 3G BTS to NetAct in NetAct documentation.
Figure below shows the AXC as integrated in NetAct.

Integrating and Configuring AXC

2 Modifying AXC configuration with XML configuration file


Purpose
The configuration of AXC can be modified with an XML configuration file that contains
the changed configuration. You can:

download a new XML configuration file to AXC


upload the AXC configuration to Plan Editor for modifications
AXC Manager can generate an XML file that contains the full configuration of the
AXC node. The current configuration is then uploaded to NetAct Plan Editor where
settings can be changed or added. Finally, a new XML file is created and downloaded to AXC.

If you want to reset the AXC to factory settings, select Tools Recover... or use the
AXC web interface.
Before you start
Check that:

the XML configuration file has been prepared and is available


the licence files for application software are available (if necessary)
AXC has access to the location of the configuration files (for example, Local Management Tool or a database in NetAct)

If the XML configuration file is downloaded to AXC locally from the Local Management
Tool, you do not have to configure an external HTTPS server. AXC Manager contains
an internal HTTPS server that is activated automatically when necessary.
If the internal HTTPS server is used, close all other HTTPS servers running on the same
PC to avoid port conflicts.
If you are using a remote HTTPS server, make sure that the XML configuration file is
accessible to AXC and that the HTTPS server is online and running.
Steps
1

Click Node Import configuration...


The Import Configuration window opens.
