BSC6900 GSM
Commissioning Guide

About This Document

The BSC6900 commissioning can be performed remotely or locally. Remote commissioning is


performed by the remote engineer (technical owner of the BSC). In this mode, multiple BSCs
can be commissioned simultaneously in the central equipment room. Local commissioning is
performed by the site engineer (commissioning owner in the BSC equipment room). In this
mode, the site engineer connects a PC to the BSC and performs the commissioning through the
LMT. There is also another commissioning mode: remote commissioning based on local
cooperation. In this mode, the commissioning is performed by both the remote engineer and the
site engineer.
4 Checking the Operating Status of the Hardware
Before verifying the equipment, ensure that the cabinet is powered on and operates normally.
5 Verifying the OMU
This describes how to verify the OMU to enable the normal communication between the LMT
and the BSC6900. The OMU verification involves installing the OMU operating system and
OMU application, checking the OMU operation status, and changing the external fixed IP
address and external virtual IP address of the OMU on site.
6 Logging In to the BSC6900 Through the LMT
This chapter describes how to log in to the BSC6900 through the LMT and enable the normal
communication. LMT verification ensures the BSC6900 commissioning through the LMT.
7 Updating the OMU Database
This describes how to update configuration data in the OMU database by running MML
commands.
8 Activating and Verifying the License
This chapter describes how to activate the license and verify the license configuration
information to enable service checking.
9 Loading BSC6900 Board Software and Data Files
This chapter describes how to load the BSC6900 board software and data files to enable the
normal operation of the BSC6900.
10 Connecting the BSC6900 to the M2000
This chapter describes how to connect the BSC6900 to the M2000 for the centralized
management.
11 Verifying Interfaces
This section describes how to verify interfaces. The interfaces to be verified are Abis, A, Gb,
Ater, and Pb interfaces. The Ater interface verification is mandatory in BM/TC separated mode;
the Pb interface verification is mandatory when the external PCU is used on the BSC6900.
12 Handling the Alarms Generated During the Commissioning
This chapter describes how to handle the alarms generated during the commissioning, thus
preventing the alarms from affecting the verification of services.
13 Verifying the GSM Services
This chapter describes how to verify that the GSM basic services and the feature services that
are enabled are normal. The basic services consist of speech service and data service. The feature
services consist of the inter-RAT handover, location service, and AMR service.
