A.2 Setting Up a Cell


Prerequisites: The UMPT, LBBP, and RRUs/RFUs have been added on the eNodeB GUI,
cable connections are complete, and the subrack is powered on. For details, see section 8.2
"eNodeB GUI."
Unless otherwise specified, the following commands do not distinguish between eNodeB_0
and eNodeB_1.
Configurations of some parameters use the common values. For details about the parameter
value ranges, see related definition on Web LMT.
To set up a cell, perform the following steps:
Step 1 Log in to the Web LMT using the user name admin and password hwbs@com. For details,
see section 8.2.7 "Querying the Maintenance IP Address of the UMPT and Logging In to the
Web LMT."
Step 2 Add a cabinet and subrack by running related commands on the Web LMT.
 Command example for eNodeB_0:
ADD CABINET: CN=0, TYPE= BTS3900L;
ADD SUBRACK: CN=0, SRN=0, TYPE=BBU3900;
ADD APP: AID=1, AT=eNodeB, AN="LTE";
 Command example for eNodeB_1:
ADD CABINET: CN=1, TYPE= BTS3900L;

ADD EUTRANINTERNFREQ: LocalCellId=*, DlEarfcn=**, UlEarfcnCfgInd=NOT_CFG,
CellReselPriorityCfgInd=NOT_CFG, SpeedDependSPCfgInd=NOT_CFG, MeasBandWidth=MBW100,
PmaxCfgInd=NOT_CFG;

Step 4 Add a neighbor relationship with an inter-frequency cell.


ADD EUTRANINTERFREQNCELL: LocalCellId=*, Mcc="460", Mnc="00", eNodeBId=**, CellId=*,
CellIndividualOffset=dB8;

NOTE
The CellIndividualOffset parameter in the preceding command specifies a cell offset. It is good
practice to set CellIndividualOffset to 8 dB or higher to facilitate handovers. Change the value as
required.

Step 5 Modify parameters for inter-frequency handovers.


MOD INTERFREQHOGROUP: LocalCellId=*, InterFreqHoGroupId=0, InterFreqHoA1ThdRsrp=-105,
InterFreqHoA2ThdRsrp=-109, InterFreqHoA4ThdRsrp=-105,
InterFreqLoadBasedHoA4ThdRsrp=-105;

NOTE
Retain the default values or set the parameters as required.

A.5 Configuring the Environment for Inter-eNodeB


Intra-Frequency Handovers
To configure the environment for inter-eNodeB intra-frequency handovers, perform the
following steps:
Step 1 Configure two intra-frequency cells.
MOD CELL: LocalCellId=*, FreqBand=*, DlEarfcn=**;

Step 2 Turn on the switch for coverage-based intra-frequency handovers.


MOD ENODEBALGOSWITCH: HoAlgoSwitch=IntraFreqCoverHoSwitch-1;

NOTE
Currently LTEStar supports only coverage-based handovers. The coverage-based handover switch is
turned on by default.

Step 3 Add an external cell.


ADD EUTRANEXTERNALCELL: Mcc="460", Mnc="00", eNodeBId=1, CellId=*, DlEarfcn=**,
UlEarfcnCfgInd=NOT_CFG, PhyCellId=**, Tac=0;

Step 4 Add a neighbor relationship with an intra-frequency cell.


ADD EUTRANINTRAFREQNCELL: LocalCellId=*, Mcc="460", Mnc="00", eNodeBId=1, CellId=**;
