Any hybrid configurations of 1R and 2R cells are supported. In these configurations, the total
number of cells should be less than or equal to the maximum supported number of 2R cells.
From SRAN11.1 onwards, the UBBPd4 supports hybrid configurations of 1R and 4R cells or 2R and
4R cells. In these configurations, a maximum of three cells are supported.
From SRAN9.0 (V100R009C00SPC210) onwards, the UBBPd5 supports hybrid configurations of
1R and 4R cells or 2R and 4R cells. In these configurations, a maximum of three cells are supported.
From SRAN9.0 (V100R009C00SPC210) onwards, the UBBPd6 supports hybrid configurations of

(1)
: If GSM is configured with 72 carriers (G24/24/24), each carrier can be configured with one
Standalone Dedicated Control Channel (SDCCH) only; if GSM is configured with 24 carriers
(G8/8/8), each carrier can be configured three SDCCHs.

2.3 Signaling Specifications


2.3.1 LTE Signaling Specifications
Busy hour call attempts (BHCA) is the number of calls attempted 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), DRB 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 traffic model.
The BHCA specifications provided by Huawei are based on the smartphone traffic model.
The following table lists the signaling specifications of the UMPT and UBBP in the
smartphone traffic model.

UBBPe3/UBBPe4 eRAN11.1 and later versions: 432000

In eRAN7.0, the signaling specifications of an eNodeB cannot exceed 480,000 BHCA.


In eRAN8.1, the signaling specifications of an eNodeB cannot exceed 1,440,000 BHCA.
In eRAN11.1, the signaling specifications of an eNodeB cannot exceed 3,240,000 BHCA.
The following table lists the signaling specifications and the maximum number of UEs in
RRC connected mode supported by an eNodeB when the smartphone traffic model is used.

2.3.2 Signaling Specifications of Co-MPT Multimode Base Station


The signaling specifications of co-MPT GU, GL, UL, and GUL multimode base stations are
listed in Table 2-22, Table 2-23, Table 2-24, and Table 2-25.

If GSM is configured with 72 carriers (S24/24/24), each carrier can be configured with one
Standalone Dedicated Control Channel (SDCCH) only; if GSM is configured with 24 carriers
(S8/8/8), each carrier can be configured three SDCCHs.
Common NodeB Application Protocol (CNBAP) indicates the signaling traffic of a NodeB over the
Iub interface. The NBAP is defined in 3GPP specifications, and one CNBAP indicates one radio link
(RL) establishment procedure.

2.7 LTE 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.
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.
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.

smartphone traffic models.
