3.2 BTS Functional Structure


BTS functional structure consists of BTS nodes, GBTS Service, NodeB Service, and eNodeB
Service.
The following figure shows the functional structure of a BTS.

Figure 3-2 BTS functional structure

BTS nodes use abstract resources and a unified interface design. In this case, software and
hardware differences are shielded and each Service can be flexibly deployed on each type of
resources. As a result, resources can be flexibly shared and allocated among each type of
Service.

short for Signaling Control Transmission Protocol.

3.3 Deployment of 3900 Series Base Stations


3900 series base stations can be deployed as separate-MPT or co-MPT base stations.

3.3.1 Co-MPT Base Stations


In a co-MPT 3900 series base station, all the services are deployed on one BTS node and
managed by the operation and maintenance center (OMC) through one O&M channel.

The following figure shows a 3900 series base station with co-MPT.

Issue 07 (2016-04-29) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 21


Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
3900 Series Base Station
Technical Description 3 Logical Structure

In a co-MPT base station, the BTS node manages the software and hardware platforms.
Resources can be shared or used independently for each Service to achieve flexible resource
scheduling and allocation. This facilitates the evolution of multimode base stations.
In a co-MPT base station, different modes can be flexibly combined to implement GSM,
UMTS, LTE FDD, and LTE TDD single-mode base stations, GU, GL, UL, GUL, and GULT
multi-mode base stations.

NOTICE
If operations that affect services are performed on the shared resources, services of modes that
share these resources will be affected. These operations include parameter adjustments, resets,
board additions and removals, power-off, blocking, loopbacks, offline tests, offline
performance tests, and software upgrades and rollbacks.

3.3.2 Separate-MPT Base Stations


In a separate-MPT 3900 series base station, services of each mode are deployed on its own
BTS node and managed by the operation and maintenance center (OMC) through its own
O&M channel.
Figure 3-4 and Figure 3-5 show different applications of a 3900 series base station with
separate-MPT.

3900 LTE: 3900 series base stations deployed only with LTE
Service

In a separate-MPT base station, each mode has an independent software platform and an
independent hardware platform. However, these modes can still share part of the resources,
such as site devices, cabinets, the BBU, transmission resources, clocks, RF modules, and the
antenna system. The more the resources are shared, the more each Service depends on each
other. The less the resources are shared, the less each Service depends on each other. The BTS
nodes communicate with each other through the Itf_RBS_MRI interface to negotiate how to
allocate shared resources and prevent resource conflicts.
In a separate-MPT base station, the four modes can be flexibly combined to implement GSM,
UMTS, LTE FDD, and LTE TDD single-mode base stations, GU, GL, and UL dual-mode
base stations, GUL triple-mode base stations, and GULT four-mode base stations.

Different Deployment of GBTS Service and eGBTS Service


GBTS Service is deployed on a 3900 GSM and eGBTS Service is deployed on a 3900
eGBTS. The following figure shows different deployment of GBTS Service and eGBTS
Service.

3900 GSM: The base stations are managed by the OMC through the OM interface on the
BSC. The BSC together with the base stations under this BSC are displayed as an independent
NE on the OMC interface. The base stations are not independent NEs.
3900 eGBTS: The base stations are directly managed by the OMC and function as
independent NEs. The base stations now independently manage changes in product forms,
hardware configuration, networking capability and specifications of RF modules. Moreover,
GSM, UMTS, and LTE base stations have unified OM methods. This facilitates the evolution
of multimode base stations.

Special Type of Separate-MPT 3900 Series Base Stations


If UMTS and LTE services are to be deployed in a 3900 GSM base station, the following
special type of separate-MPT base stations can be used to achieve high service integration
through co-MPT without changing the existing base stations.

4 Operation and Maintenance

Huawei provides convenient and flexible operation and maintenance methods for 3900 series
base stations.

3900 series base stations can be maintained in the following methods:


l Local maintenance: OM personnel maintain the base station on the base station LMT or
SMT through the local maintenance port on the base station.
l Remote maintenance: OM personnel maintain the base station on the U2000 or LMT in
the equipment room or the centralized management center.

On the U2000, the base station is a management entity providing RAT Service of one or
multiple modes. Base stations are independent of each other and have different deployment
IDs (DIDs). In this document, the RAT Service provided by a 3900 series base station
includes GBTS Service, NodeB Service, and eNodeB Service. For related function
descriptions, see section 2.2 BTS in the RAN Logical Layer.

A base station deployed with only one mode is called a single-mode base station. A base
station deployed with two or more modes is called a multimode base station. Multimode base
stations such as separate-MPT and co-MPT multimode base stations are indicated by
Multimode Base Station on the U2000. To simplify base station classification, a co-MPT
base station deployed with only one mode is also classified as a multimode base station.

Each BTS node in a multimode base station has an independent OM channel. The BTS node
together with the RAT Service deployed on it are called an NE, which can be independently
managed by the LMT, SMT, or U2000.

Operation and Maintenance for Single-Mode Base Stations


A single-mode base station serves only one mode, has one OM interface, represents one NE,
and is connected to one U2000.

The GBTS, NodeB, and eNodeB are displayed on the U2000 based on the NE type. The
corresponding NE type is BTS3900 GSM, BTS3900 WCDMA, and BTS3900 LTE,
respectively.

The NE type of the eGBTS is BTS3900. The eGBTS has the same OM system as a co-MPT
multimode base station.

Figure 4-1 shows the OM systems of the GBTS, NodeB, and eNodeB.

Multiple modes in a co-MPT multimode base station are deployed on the same main control
board. These modes share one OM interface, represent one NE, and are connected to one
U2000.

A co-MPT multimode base station is displayed as BTS3900 on the U2000.

Operation and Maintenance for Separate-MPT Multimode Base Stations


Multiple modes in a separate-MPT multimode base station are deployed on different main
control boards. These modes have different OM interfaces, represent different NEs, and are
connected to one U2000 through their own OM channels.

NEs in a separate-MPT multimode base station are independently managed on the base station
LMT or SMT.

On the U2000, NEs in a separate-MPT multimode base station have the same DID. The
U2000 provides a unified GUI to manage NEs in a separate-MPT multimode base station.
The separate-MPT multimode base station is indicated by MBTS on the U2000. Different
modes have different NE types, including BTS3900 GSM, BTS3900 WCDMA, and BTS3900
LTE.

Figure 4-3 shows the OM system of a separate-MPT multimode base station.

Figure 4-3 OM system of a separate-MPT multimode base station

Management Method of Shared Resources


Shared resources are physical and logical resources shared among multiple modes in a
separate-MPT multimode base station. For details, see Table 4-2. Resources occupied by only
one mode are not shared resources.

In a separate-MPT multimode base station where multiple modes share resources, the shared
resources must be managed.

There are two methods for managing the shared resources:

l Unilateral management: The shared resources are managed by only one mode and are
displayed only on the management interface of this mode.

3900 Series Base Station
Technical Description 4 Operation and Maintenance

l Multilateral management: The shared resources are collectively managed by multiple


modes. Operators need to prevent operations that may cause management conflicts.

NOTICE
If operations that affect services are performed on the shared resources, services of modes that
share these resources will be affected. These operations include parameter adjustments, resets,
board additions and removals, power-off, blocking, loopbacks, offline tests, offline
performance tests, and software upgrades and rollbacks.

When unilateral management is used, the user can specify a mode to manage the shared
resources based on site situations. For example:
l Newly deployed base stations: Different modes of newly deployed base stations are
listed in descending order of management priority: GSM > UMTS > LTE. For example,
in a newly deployed GU base station, it is recommended that GSM manage the shared
resources.
l Capacity expansion: It is recommended that the existing mode manage the shared
resources. For example, during an evolution from GSM to GU, it is recommended that
GSM manage the shared resources.
The management method varies according to different types of shared resources. Table 4-2
lists the management method for different types of shared resources.

Table 4-2 Method for managing different types of shared resources

Site devices Unilateral management: Site devices are managed by one mode in the
BBU to which the site devices are connected.

Cabinets Unilateral management: If a cabinet is connected to a BBU, the


monitoring system of this cabinet is monitored by one mode in this
BBU. The monitoring system includes the power monitoring unit
(PMU), temperature control unit (TCU), cabinet control unit (CCU),
fan monitoring unit (FMU), and environment monitoring unit (EMU).
If a cabinet is connected to a BBU through the radio remote units
(RRUs), the monitoring system of this cabinet is managed by one mode

NOTE
l When monitoring boards are managed by only one mode, the following
functions cannot be used: energy saving, smart TRX, and fan speed
controlling by the main control board.
l The CCU can be managed by only one mode.

BBU subrack Multilateral management: The UPEU, UEIU, and FAN are managed
collectively by all modes in the BBU. UPEU is short for universal
power and environment interface unit. UEIU is short for universal
environment interface unit.

Multimode RF Multilateral management: Multimode RF modules are managed by the


modules modes that the multimode RF modules serve.
For example, a multimode RF module working in GU mode is managed
collectively by GSM and UMTS.

ALD Unilateral management: The ALD is managed by one mode whose RF


modules are connected to the ALD. ALD is short for antenna line
device.

Traffic Model
On live networks, the service capacity of an eNodeB FDD depends on system processing
capacities as well as the traffic model used. This section describes two traffic models:
datacard traffic model and smartphone traffic model.
l The datacard traffic model derives from a typical LTE network where data cards make up
a large proportion of all admitted terminals. LTE dongle and customer premises
equipment (CPE) are examples of such data cards. UEs in this traffic model are
characterized by long online duration, low mobility, and many large-packet data services.
l The smartphone traffic model derives from a typical LTE network where smartphones
make up a large proportion of all admitted terminals. UEs in this traffic model are
characterized by short online duration, frequent network access and release, high
mobility, and many small-packet data services.
The following table describes the control plane (CP) traffic models for the datacard and
smartphone traffic models.
NOTE

Signaling Specifications
Busy Hour Call Attempts (BHCA) is the number of call attempts at a busy hour. Signaling
procedures required for completing a call may include the following: call setup, call release
(including CSFB if it occurs), handover, tracking area update (TAU), RB setup and release,
and transition from the uplink-synchronized state to the uplink-asynchronized state. BHCA
indicates the signaling processing capabilities of a system.

Technical Description 6 Product Specifications

A busy hour call initiated on different operators' networks involves different types and
numbers of signaling procedures and therefore consumes different amount of eNodeB
resources. As a result, the BHCA capability varies depending on the call model.

The BHCA specifications provided by Huawei are based on the smartphone traffic model.

Maximum Number of VoLTE UEs


In addition to highly efficient data services, the LTE network provides high quality VoLTE
services by specifying the QoS class identifier (QCI). VoLTE services are characterized by
low data rates and a large number of regular small packets, which place high requirements on
the system processing delay and packet processing speed.

Capacity specifications of VoLTE refer to the maximum number of VoLTE UEs that can be
processed by the eNodeB when the radio conditions are not considered. The following table
lists the maximum number of VoLTE UEs per baseband processing board.

Maximum Number of CA UEs


As one of the most important features in LTE-A networks, CA provides a peak data rate of 1
Gbit/s by aggregating continuous and discontinuous carriers. A CA UE is configured with a
primary component carrier (PCC) and at least one secondary component carrier (SCC).
According to the architecture and working principle of CA, a PCC UE consumes more

baseband processing resources than a non-CA UE performing data services, and an SCC UE
consumes less baseband processing resources than a non-CA UE performing data services.
The number of CA UEs provided by Huawei is based on the smartphone traffic model. The
following table lists the maximum number of CA UEs per baseband processing board.

NOTE

l The LBBPc board is not recommended for carrying PCCs due to its limited processing capabilities.
However, this board can be used to carry SCCs.
l In the smartphone traffic model, the calculation result of the formula (Number of non-CA UEs carried on
a baseband processing board + Number of PCCs on the board x [1 + (N 1) x 0.5] + Number of SCCs on
the board x 0.5) is less than or equal to the maximum number of UEs in RRC Connected mode supported
by the board. N is the number of component carriers used for CA. For example, the value of N is 2 for
2CC CA.
l The maximum number of PCCs supported by a board cannot exceed the value listed in the
preceding table. Use the UBBPd3 board as an example. The board supports a maximum of 750
PCCs@2CC CA or 500 PCCs@3CC CA even when it carries only PCCs.
l In the smartphone traffic model, the calculation result of the formula (Number of non-CA UEs +
Number of PCCs + Number of SCCs carried on a board) is less than or equal to the maximum
number of UEs in RRC Connected mode supported by the board.

l The datacard traffic model derives from a typical LTE network where data cards make up
a large proportion of all admitted terminals. LTE dongle and customer premises
equipment (CPE) are examples of such data cards. UEs in this traffic model are
characterized by long online duration, low mobility, and many large-packet data services.
l The smartphone traffic model derives from a typical LTE network where smartphones
make up a large proportion of all admitted terminals. UEs in this traffic model are
characterized by short online duration, frequent network access and release, high
mobility, and many small-packet data services.
The following table describes the control plane (CP) traffic models for the datacard and
smartphone traffic models.

Signaling Specifications of an eNodeB TDD


Busy Hour Call Attempts (BHCA) is the number of call attempts at a busy hour. Signaling
procedures required for completing a call may include the following: call setup, call release
(including CSFB if it occurs), handover, tracking area update (TAU), RB setup and release,
and transition from the uplink-synchronized state to the uplink-asynchronized state. BHCA
indicates the signaling processing capabilities of a system.

A busy hour call initiated on different operators' networks involves different types and
numbers of signaling procedures and therefore consumes different amount of eNodeB
resources. As a result, the BHCA capability varies depending on the call model.

The BHCA specifications provided by Huawei are based on the smartphone traffic model.

The following table lists the signaling specifications of the LMPT, UMPT, LBBP, and UBBP
boards in the smartphone traffic model.
