1 ON--SITE MAINTENANCE

1.1 On-site maintenance

1.1.1 Introduction
Within a global GSM 850, GSM 900, GSM 1800, GSM 1900, GSM 850/1900 or
GSM 900/1800 network, the major part of Base Station Subsystem maintenance
activities are centralized at the OMC--R, as defined in CCITT recommendations.
In some cases, however, the information required by maintenance teams cannot be
centralized and the operator needs to perform procedures that the OMC--R does not
support.
On--site BSS maintenance, therefore, refers to all the operations undertaken outside
the OMC--R via a local maintenance terminal, called the TML, connected to one of
the following:
BSC
BTS (see NTP < 51 >)
TCU
OMC--R via the public switched network

1.1.2 Features and functions


On--site maintenance provides a set of functions that give the operator information
on the state of BSS elements that is not always available at the OMC--R level.

1.1.2.1 For the BSC

On--site BSC maintenance is performed in the following situations:


non--establishment of the link between the OMC--R and a BSC, which may be the
result of a BSC or OMN interface failure.
confirmation of board status by the OMC--R.
verification of newly--installed equipment after repairs.
special operations on BSC disks (eg: formatting, copy, customization).

1.1.2.2 For the TCU

The on--site TCU maintenance tool is used to perform TCU shelf tests and to check
board operations.
The TCU maintenance tool can only be used on a TCU in stand--alone mode (the
TCU being tested is isolated from the network).

1.2 On--site maintenance terminal


Maintenance operations are performed on--site via a dedicated terminal, called the
TML, which uses tools that are specific to each functional entity (see Figure 1--1).
A hardware device (PC), dedicated package of boards, software, and cables support
the complete tool set.
The tool set includes the following:
BSC/TCU e3 on--site maintenance terminal: TML BSC/TCU e3.

1.3 TML BSC/TCU e3 overview

1.3.1 General description


The TML e3 application is dedicated to the e3 equipment (BSC e3 and TCU e3) and
is only to be used on these equipment units.
It can be used on the same PC that hosts the 2G TML, the two applications being
independent.
According to the equipment state (off--line or on--line) and of the OMC--R link state
(in service or down) different tasks are available.

1.3.1.1 With equipment off--line and OMC--R link out of service

The TML e3 allows the user to:


perform tests after an equipment installation.
With equipment on--line and OMC--R in service, the TML e3 allows the user to:
perform an audit before an important operation ( upgrade for example).
perform some upgrade (software or hardware) tasks.

1.3.1.2 With equipment on--line processing traffic and OMC--R in or out of service

The TML application allows the user to:


perform corrective maintenance task.
investigate and locate any product problem.
Note: With BSC/ TCU e3 products, preventive maintenance automatic tests are
performed by the nominal software. Their results are periodically sent to
the OMC--R. So, the TML e3 is not used in a preventive maintenance
context.

A TML software release supports English and French languages.


The TML performs the tests with OK or not OK results. But in the case of a failed
result test, the diagnosis must be as precise as possible to clearly identify the faulty
module or cable.
The tests should be performed in a chronological way. For example in the BSC, the
Control Node links have to be validated before the Interface Node. So in the case
of a failed test result, additional tests could be performed automatically to give a
more precise diagnosis.
Some tests influence the service provided. So they need to modify the modules in
test administrative state (usually done by the OMC--R). The administrative state
modification must be automatic and transparent from the TML user view.

1.3.2 TML e3 application principle


The TML e3 application is a Java applet stored in the BSC Control Node disk and
in the CEM module of BSC/TCU e3.
The software architecture of the TML BSC/TCU e3 is Figure 1--2.

Figure 1--2 TML software architecture

The web browser is used to load an HTML page holding the TML applet (through
HTTP). Once the TCP/IP connection to the e3 equipment is established, the TML
applet is downloaded to the TML PC using the HTTP server.
Messages between TML and e3 equipment are carried out through a TCP/IP
connection. (TCP/IP connection with port number 12000 for BSC CN or 11000 for
BSC IN and TCU).

The architecture used for the TCU or for the BSC IN is exactly the same as the one
described above (for a BSC).

1.3.3 TML e3 solution advantages


The software TML architecture provides the following advantages:
On the TML PC only a web browser is required to launch TML application.
Only a Java plug--in “Java 2 Runtime Environment” is to be installed on the
TML PC.
Compatibility with Windows 95 and Windows 2000 PC Operating Systems.
Since the TML application is integrated in the equipment, incompatibility
problems between the TML PC application and the equipment release disappear.
Remote access to BSC/TCU e3 equipment connected on a LAN (Ethernet
interface) is possible. Access is also possible through the PSTN.

1.3.4 TML e3 solution constraints


Due to the software architecture, the following constraints are encountered:
In the case of a direct connection, the laptop PC IP address and the mask IP value
must be defined in the same domain as the IP address of the e3 equipment.
The BSC supports upgrades of e3 equipment software up to two software
releases (version N and Version N+1).
The BSC e3 equipment software must be running to connect the BSC and TML.
Running the BSC e3 equipment software requires at least one OMU and one
shared disk. Running the TML requires at least one OMU, one private disk, and
one shared disk.

installed in a range of 3 BSS releases.
Therefore the TML use the same standard installation procedure in every release in
a range of 3 BSS releases.

SOFTWARE RELEASE

The on--site maintenance terminal PC software consists of a Java plug--in “Java 2


Runtime Environment” delivered in the TML CD ROM. The release of the PC
Java Plug--in to be used must be compatible with the TML software release of the
e3 equipment.

1--10 On--site maintenance Nortel Networks Confidential

1.6 Physical connection


The PC TML support only a direct connection between the laptop PC and a BSC
e3 or TCU e3. The laptop PC IP address and the mask value must be defined in the
same domain as IP address of e3 equipment. You must ask the platform
administrator to give a suitable IP address and mask value. You must deactivate the
DHCP function and specify the IP address.
The TML can only communicate with the active unit (CEM or OMU).
When connected directly to an OMU, the TML can communicate with both OMU
modules. It can always reach the active one, regardless of the physical connection.
When connected directly to a CEM, however, the TML can not communicate with
both modules of a CEM pair. You must connect the TML directly to the active OMU.
The TML software gives an error message if it connects to a passive CEM.
For an e3 equipment, the IP addresses of OMU and/or CEM modules are
consecutive.

3.3.4.3 Validating the AAL--1 path

PURPOSE

ATTENTION
This command is not available for V14.3, but should appear in the Link
submenu.

The aim of this test, concerning BSC equipment items, is to check the BSC global
path (see Figure 3--46).
This test consists of sending a LAPD sequence from one or several TMU source
modules to one or several target modules on which a loopback is performed.
The possible target loopback modules are:
CEM
LSA--RC
SAI (the loop--back must be performed manually using the switch button on the
SAI)
This test applies to the BSC (Control Node and Interface Node). It uses the base test
referenced in BSC.4.4.
From a selected TMU module, a LAPD test sequence is sent. This sequence is
looped back at the CEM, the LSA RC or the SAI. The received sequence at the initial
TMU must correspond to the emitted one. The result validates the global BSC path.
For this test, the TML software allows the user to select one or several TMU
modules. For the selected TMU modules, a dialog box allows the user to select:
The location where is performed the loop back (CEM, LSA RC or SAI). If SAI is
selected, the loop back must be performed manually using switch buttons on the
SAI.
When the loop back is performed in the SAI, an LSA RC (in fact one of the 2 IEM
modules) and its target PCM number have also to be selected.

3.3.4.5 Testing the BSC IN--CN optical link

PURPOSE

This test applies to the BSC product.


The Control Node and the Interface Node are connected through an OC--3 optical
link. (see Figure 3--52) This link connects CC--1 and ATM RM modules.
Note: This command is only available from IN.
There is no parameter needed for this command. So there is no main screen.

The aim of this test is to check communication between the Control Node and the
Interface Node through an optical link.
Note: When an optical link is checked, the other one must be available so that
communication is possible between the Control Node and the Interface
Node.

This test performs a loop back at the CC--1 module associated to the selected fiber.
Then a test sequence is sent, from the ATM RM module (associated to the selected
fiber) to the pair CC--1.
The test result is OK if the received sequence (at the ATM RM) corresponds to the
emitted one else it is NOK. This result validates the physical connection between
a CC--1 module and the pair ATM RM.
To perform this test, the Control Node and the Interface Node have to communicate
through the second (not selected) fiber. So, this fiber must be OK.
The TML software performs automatically this test for the two OC--3 fibers.

Note: There is no parameter needed for this command. So there is no main screen.

This test applies to the CEM, the 8K RM for a BSC, the TRM for a TCU and the
LSA RC (in fact the 2 IEM modules) in the BSC Interface Node or the TCU product.
It is used during the commissioning or for investigation purpose at any time in the
products life.
LSA RC is composed by 3 modules (two IEM and one TIM). An IEM module hosts
all of the PCM30/DS1 electronics. It performs the PCM time--switch. In a LSA RC,
the IEM are duplicated in a 1+1 protection scheme. This means that there is one
spare IEM for each LSA RC that processes calls.
The test performs PCM loops back at the IEM output. Then, a test sequence is sent
from the active CEM module to the target LSA RC. The sequence is looped backed
at the IEM (the active one), sent back to the CEM, then it is switched in the 8K RM
for a BSC or in a TRM for a TCU and comes back to the CEM. The received
sequence (at the CEM) must correspond to the emitted one.
This result validates the IEM modules time--switch, and the communication
between CEM, 8K RM and LSA RC (in fact the 2 IEM modules).
For each module, the result is OK when the received sequence (at CEM modules)
corresponds to the emitted one. The TML software performs automatically this test.

ACTIVATION

Select Test/Link/IN internal snake menu


This test is performed automatically.
Wait until the display of the summary window appears (this can take a few minutes).

RESULT

The IEM modules time--switch and the communication between CEM, 8K RM and
LSA RC are validated.

This test applies to the CEM, the 8K RM for a BSC, the TRM for a TCU, the LSA
RC (in fact the 2 IEM modules) and the CTU in the BSC Interface Node or the TCU
product. It is used during the commissioning or for investigation purpose at any time
in the products life.
It uses the base tests referenced IN.3.2 for a BSC and TN.3.2 for a TCU.
This test performs the same tasks as the “IN internal snake” test, but the loop back
is performed in the CTU (manually using switch buttons on the SAI) : A test
sequence is sent from the active CEM module to the CTU through the target LSA
RC (in fact its active IEM module).
The sequence is looped backed in the CTU, sent back to the CEM, then it is switched
in the 8K RM for a BSC or in a TRM for a TCU and comes back to the CEM. The
received sequence (at the CEM) must correspond to the emitted one.
This result validates the IEM modules time--switch, and the communication
between CEM, 8K RM for a BSC, TRM for a TCU, LSA RC (in fact the 2 IEM
modules) and the CTU.
For each module, the result is OK when the received sequence (at CEM modules)
corresponds to the emitted one. The TML software performs automatically this test.

ACTIVATION

Select Test/Link/IN external snake menu


This test is performed automatically.

RESULT

The IEM modules time--switch, and the communication between CEM, 8K RM for
a BSC, TRM for a TCU, LSA RC and the CTU are validated.

3.3.4.9 Checking BSC/TCU e3 LSA--RC connection

PURPOSE

The aim of this test, applied to BSC Interface Node or TCU, is to check the physical
connection between the LSA--RC modules and the SAI.

Figure 3--54 LSA--RC connection test


This test applies to the BSC Interface Node and the TCU product. It is used during
the commissioning or for investigation purpose at any time in the products life.
The SAI is composed by CTU modules. CTU modules provide connectors for
wiring to the network of the customer. The SAI is connected to the BSC Interface
Node (or the TCU) through the LSA RC.
This test check the connection between IEM and TIM, with this test we can also
check the presence and good positioning of cables on TIM module.

3.4.4 Initializing the Control Node

3.4.4.1 Initialization CN menu presentation

A software upgrade/installation procedure of an e3 equipment includes the


following tasks:
software downloading
package installation
software activation
Like the OMC--R, the TML provides commands to download, install and activate
BSC/TCU e3 software using the following function of the “Initialization ” menu:
BSC software download
BSC sofware installation
BSC software activation
TCU software upgrade
Depending of the availability or not of the OMC--R, initialization tasks are split
between the TML and the OMC--R.
When the OMC--R is available, the TML is only used to download software, in the
case of a on--site intervention (to perform a hardware change for example). In these
circumstances, for software coherence reasons in the network, it is recommended
to perform package installation and software activation using the OMC--R.
The download is performed with ftp. So a ftp server is mandatory on the BSC (user
and password used are ”root”).
In case the OMC--R is unavailable, as in the case of commissioning, all the upgrade
tasks (downloading, installation and activation) are performed by the TML.

Here are the functions in the Initialization IN or TCU menu:

Figure 3--68 “Initialization IN or TCU” menu

3.4.5.2 IN or TCU software update

PURPOSE

This function is used to update the IN or TCU software.


To speed up the on--site installation, the factory delivers already installed BSC. In
the case of a wrong installed release, the commissioner has to install the right one.
To achieve that, it is necessary to download the right BSC release (AIX, application
or both) to the BSC. So, this functionality is used during the commissioning (for a
first product installation) or during an upgrade to simulate the BSC software
download from the OMC--R.
A private BSC disk contains the current running BSC software, a backup version
and a free space dedicated to the new versions (software, AIX or both) to be
installed.
The installation of a Interface Node modules uses the command CMD.3.2 (”File
download from TML to TCU/IN ”) to perform the upgrade. A ftp server is created
on the TML e3 to transfer the files.
The installation of a TCU modules uses the command CMD.3.2 (”Files Download
from TML to TCU/IN”) to perform the upgrade. A ftp server is created on the TML
e3 to transfer the files.

3.7.9 New parameter bscHighSwitching Capacity to allow the DS512 link


management
BSCe3 switching capacity without DS512 is:
(9 Slinks * 256) -- (32 (messaging) + 4 (SRT synchro) ) = 2268 DS0

BSCe3 switching capacity without DS512 is:


(9 * 256 - (32 + 4 ) + 3 * 511 + 1/2 * 511 = 4056 DS0 (1/2 since 1 DS0 out of 2 is
used)
This solution does not require additional hardware except DS512 links.

In BSS V15, the BSCe3 is ready to manage the DS512 links as soon as the version
is installed or upgraded.
DS512 links are “plug and play” and hence can be hot inserted while the BSCe3 is
online.
At OMC--R level, the bscHighSwitchingCapacity parameter allows the DS512
feature on the BSCe3. If the bscHighSwitchingCapacity parameter is set to
disabled, the feature is deactivated.
In case the bscHighSwitchingCapacity parameter is enabled, but the DS512 links
are not connected or are all faulty on both CEM/SRT modules, the maximum
capacity of the BSCe3 Interface Node is 2268 DS0.
In case the bscHighSwitchingCapacity parameter is set to disabled, it means that on
going communications using DS0 of the DS512 links are soft blocked (available
DS0 are no longer usable and existing communications using DS0 can continue, but
DS0 will not be available at the end of the communication).

4056 DS0 are available with DS512 links compared to 2268 DS0 without DS512
links.
CEM swact and SRT sparing performances, equipped with DS512 links, are not
degraded compared to the CEM swact and SRT sparing performances non equipped
with DS512 links.

4.1.3.3 Scroll bars

A standard window has two scroll bars:


a vertical scroll bar on the right of the window
a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the window
Each scroll bar has a scroll box which varies in size.
There are three ways of moving within the contents of a window:
To scroll the contents of a window, line by line, click on the arrow at the bottom of
the vertical scroll bar.
To scroll the contents of a window by screen page, click in the part of the vertical
scroll bar below or above the scroll box.
To scroll faster than line by line, use the mouse to drag the scroll box.
The principle is the same for the horizontal scroll bar.
