Fibre optics

Fiber optic cables must not be bent in a radius of less than 30 mm.

Static discharge

Motorola equipment contains CMOS devices. These Metal Oxide


Semiconductor (MOS) devices are susceptible to damage from electrostatic
charge. See the section Devices sensitive to static in the preface of this manual
for further information.

68P02904W56-D
12 31 Jul 2006
Devices sensitive to static

Devices sensitive to static

Certain metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) devices embody in their design a thin layer of insulation that is
susceptible to damage from electrostatic charge. Such a charge applied to the leads of the device could
cause irreparable damage.
These charges can be built up on nylon overalls, by friction, by pushing the hands into high insulation
packing material or by use of unearthed soldering irons.
MOS devices are normally despatched from the manufacturers with the leads shorted together, for
example, by metal foil eyelets, wire strapping, or by inserting the leads into conductive plastic foam.
Provided the leads are shorted it is safe to handle the device.

Special handling techniques


In the event of one of these devices having to be replaced observe the following precautions when
handling the replacement:
• Always wear an earth strap which must be connected to the electrostatic point (ESP) on the
equipment.
• Leave the short circuit on the leads until the last moment. It may be necessary to replace the
conductive foam by a piece of wire to enable the device to be fitted.
• Do not wear outer clothing made of nylon or similar man made material. A cotton overall is
preferable.
• If possible work on an earthed metal surface. Wipe insulated plastic work surfaces with an
anti–static cloth before starting the operation.
• All metal tools should be used and when not in use they should be placed on an earthed
surface.
• Take care when removing components connected to electrostatic sensitive devices. These
components may be providing protection to the device.
When mounted onto printed circuit boards (PCBs), MOS devices are normally less susceptible to
electrostatic damage. However PCBs should be handled with care, preferably by their edges and not by
their tracks and pins, they should be transferred directly from their packing to the equipment (or the other
way around) and never left exposed on the workbench.

UACU
The Auxiliary Control Unit (UACU) is configured in the Packet Service Module (PSM) subrack. The
PSM subrack comprises a pair of UACU and PSM Subrack Control Unit (URCU) boards. The UACU
boards are positioned in slot 7 and slot 9 (at the back of the panel). Each UACU board assists the
corresponding URCU board in controlling the PSM service processing boards, and the hot-plug features in
the PSM subrack.
The UACU board does not have any sub-board; therefore, there is no need to set the jumpers or
Dual-In-line Package (DIP) switches.

Functions

The functions of the UACU board are as follows:


• Provides the double-domain management.
• Performs the bus mediation function in the PSM subrack. It decides which boards can
currently use the bus.
• Assists the active-standby switchover of the service processing boards and the URCU
boards in the PSM subrack.
• Connects the local bus to the bus of another domain to enable the corresponding URCU
board to manage the service processing boards in the other domain.
• Controls the hot-plug feature of the service processing board in the PSM subrack.

Board interconnection
Figure 1-1 shows the connection of the UACU board with other boards.

Figure 1-1 Connection of UACU with other boards

There are two domains in the PSM subrack: Domain A and Domain B. Each domain includes a bus
segment (bus A or bus B), a URCU board, two UACU boards and several (maximum 6) Service
Processing Boards (SPBs). The buses in the two domains are not directly connected. Each URCU controls
the boards in other domains through the corresponding UACU. Each UACU also controls the board hot-
plug feature in the other domain.

The URCU in slot 6 functions in co-ordination with the UACU in slot 9, and the URCU in
slot 8 functions in co-ordination with the UACU in slot 7.

UBIU
The PSM Back Interface Unit (UBIU) is inserted at the back of the URCU. The UBIU provides external
ports for the URCU (network port, optical port and serial port) and identifies the H.110 bus clock drive.
The UBIU has two versions: KW33UBIU and KW34UBIU. The functions, interfaces, jumpers and DIP
switch setting of these two versions are slightly different.

Functions Chapter 4:
UBIU

Functions

The UBIU board performs the following functions:


• Supports level conversion of the 2-port asynchronous serial port signals from the URCU and
provides physical interfaces to three asynchronous serial ports.
• Generates CT bus clock signal. It receives the 8K clock signal from the sub-board UFIU of
the URCU or from the reference clock interface and generates the H.110 8K/8M clock and
8K differential clock for the H.110 bus.
• Provides 155 Mbit/s optical port and 10 Mbit/s or 100 Mbit/s network port for URCU.
• Receives the 2 MHz differential clock signal from the UPIU and sends it to the UCKI. This
function is provided by KW34UBIU only.

Board interconnection

Connection of KW33UBIU with other boards


Figure 4-1 shows the connection of the KW33UBIU board with other boards.

Figure 4-1 Connection of KW33UBIU

The KW33UBIU board operates in one of the following two modes:


• It obtains 8 kHz clock signals from the UFIU (the sub-board of URCU) and sends them to
the UEPI through an 8 kHz clock reference data bus. The UEPI then drives the operation of
the H.110 clock bus.

68P02904W56-D

Technical Description: Packet Core C-SGSN Boards Functions

• It obtains 8 kHz clock signals from the UFIU and directly drives the operation of the H.110
clock bus.

Connection of KW34UBIU with other boards


Figure 4-2 shows the connection of the KW34UBIU board with other boards.

Figure 4-2 Connection of KW34UBIU

The KW34UBIU operates in one of the following three modes:


• Mode 1: It obtains 8 kHz clock signals from the UFIU and sends them to the UEPI. The
UEPI then drives the operation of the H.110 clock bus.
• Mode 2: It obtains 8 kHz clock signals from the UFIU and directly drives the operation of
the H.110 clock bus.
• Mode 3: It obtains 8 kHz clock signals, through its front panel, from the UCKI. Then after
performing phase-lock loop processing and logical frequency division on the signals, the
KW34UBIU directly drives the operation of the H.110 clock bus.
Through the 2 MHz clock bus on the backplane, the KW34UBIU also receives 2 MHz differential clock
signals from the UPIU. It then sends the signals to the UCKI to serve as the clock source for the whole
system.

Figure 4-6 KW34UBIU board

The setting of KW34UBIU DIP switches determines the operational mode of the clock.
• Mode 1: When DIP switches 1 and 2 are set to ON, the KW34UBIU obtains 8 kHz clock
signal from the UFIU and sends it to the UEPI. The UEPI then drives the operation of the
H.110 clock bus.
• Mode 2: When DIP switch 1 is set to OFF and switch 2 is set to ON, the KW34UBIU
obtains 8 kHz clock signal from the UFIU and directly drives the operation of the H.110
clock bus.
• Mode 3: When DIP switches 1 and 2 are set to OFF, the KW34UBIU obtains 8 kHz clock
signal from the UCKI through the front panel. After performing phase-lock loop processing
and logical frequency division on the signal, the KW34UBIU directly drives the operation
of the H.110 clock bus.

• Mode 1 and Mode 2 are applicable for the KW34UBIU boards in the basic subrack
and extended subracks. Mode 3 applies to the KW34UBIU boards in the switching
subrack.
• The DIP switches 3 and 4 are reserved, and adopt default settings.
• The default state of the KW34UBIU DIP switches is ON.

UCDR
The Call Detail Record (UCDR) board implements functions such as collection, coding, transmission and
caching the Call Detail Record (CDR) for the C-SGSN.
The UCDR board has a sub-board and a back-board. The optical interface unit UFIU is mounted on the
UCDR to provide an ATM PVC channel from the UCDR to the UAIC sub-board in the PSM switching
subrack. The UBSU acts as the rear insertion board of the UCDR to hold the hard disk.
The number of UCDRs for the C-SGSN system configuration depends on the number of users. You must
configure the UCDR boards in pairs (one as active and the other as standby), in an even-number slot and
an odd-number slot respectively. The active or standby UCDRs provide heartbeat detection
communication using a 155 Mbit/s optical interface through the UAIC board in the PSM switching
subrack.
The UCDR does not directly connect with the bus; the URCU and UACU do not control the UCDR. The
UCDR uses only the physical slot and power supply in the PSM subrack. There is no direct
communication channel available between the UCDR and other boards except the UFIU and the UBSU.
Thus, the UCDR does not interact with other boards through the bus on the backplane.

UCKI

Functions

The UCKI provides:


• One RS-422 master/slave serial port for URCU maintenance and management.
• Four external reference clock source inputs in two types: 2 Mbit/s clock signals and 2 MHz
clock signals.
• Stable stratum-2 or stratum-3 synchronization clock signals for the system network.
• Sixteen 8 kHz outputs sent from the clock board through the twisted pair in the form of
RS-422 differential signals.

Board interconnection
Figure 7-1 shows the connection of the UCKI board with other boards.
In the PSM switching subrack, the UBIU receives clock signals from the UCKI and synchronizes these

upon the number of users. Usually, N+1 backup mode is used.
The UGBI can support sub-board UEPC in the upper slot and sub-board UFEU in the lower slot.

• There are two types of UGBI boards: Type A and Type B. If the silkscreen on the
board panel is UGBI, the board is of Type A. If the silkscreen is UGBIb, the board is
of Type B.
• When Type A UGBIs are used, N ≤ 6. When Type B UGBIs are used, N ≤ 11.
• The difference between Type A and Type B is that Type B supports more
subscribers than Type A.

UGBI

Functions

The UGBI board provides the following functions:


• Performs Gb interface signaling and data processing
• Performs resource management
• Performs the maintenance alarm function
• Supports Gb over IP

Board interconnection
The UGBI can operate in either of the following modes:
• Gb over FR
In this mode, the UGBI is equipped with a UFEU that processes frame relay protocols. The
UGBI communicates with the back-board UEPI or UTPI through the interface provided by
the UFEU, and provides external E1/T1 interfaces through the back-board. The UGBI also
communicates with other boards (such as, other UGBIs and the USPUs) through the
communication bus on the backplane. Figure 16-1 shows the connection of the UGBI board
functioning in Gb over FR mode.
• Gb over IP
In this mode, no UFEU is mounted on the UGBI. The UGBI forwards Gb interface
messages through the UGFU. Figure 16-2 shows the connection of the UGBI board
functioning in Gb over IP mode.
In these two modes, you can equip the UGBI with a UEPC to encrypt and decrypt the LLC layer data on
the Gb interface.

UOMU
The Packet Service Operation and Maintenance Unit (UOMU) provides interfaces for the operation and
maintenance of the entire C-SGSN system.
You can configure the UOMU board with a sub-board and a back-board:
• The UFIU is installed on the UOMU to provide an ATM PVC from the UOMU to the sub-
board of the UAIC in the PSM switching subrack.
• The UFSU is installed at the rear of the UOMU board to bear the UOMU hard disk. It
converts the level for the external optical port, Ethernet port and serial port, and provides
physical ports.
You can configure the C-SGSN system with two UOMU boards: active UOMU and standby UOMU. The
active UOMU establishes heartbeat communications with the standby UOMU using the RS232 serial port
(through UFSUs) or a 155 Mbit/s optical interface (through the UAIC).
The UOMU board is neither connected to the bus in the subrack nor does it function under the hot-plug
control of the URCU or UACU. It uses only the physical slot and power supply in the PSM subrack. There
is no direct communication channel available between the UOMU and other boards except the UFIU and
the UFSU. Therefore, the UOMU board cannot interact with other boards through the bus on the
backplane.

are of two types: input interface and output interface.
As shown in Figure 27-6, the board has five power input cables that are led from the back of the power
distribution box, -48 V1, -48 V2, BGND1, BGND2 and PGND. They are fixed to the board connectors
using OT terminals.
• The -48 V1 and -48 V2 are connected to J5 and J6.
• The BGND1 and BGND2 are integrated and connected to J7.
• The PGND is connected to J8.
• The OT terminals must be selected based on the sectional area of the cable conductor and
the diameter of the fixing bolt.
The board has two output channels. One channel is connected to the power input interface of the WDMB

WFSM Chapter 28:
Boards in the Fan Drawer

WFSM

The WCDMA Fan Status Monitoring Unit (WFSM) is configured in the rear panel of the SGSM9810 fan
drawer.

Functions
The WFSM performs the following functions:
• Monitors the operation status of the fans in the fan drawer.
• Adjusts the fan speed.
• Communicates with the URCU using the RS485 serial port and reports the operation status
of the fan drawer.
• Monitors temperature readings and sends Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) control signals to
adjust the fan speed.

Board interconnection
Figure 28-1 shows the connection of the WFSM. The WFIU refers to WCDMA Fan Interface Unit, and
the WCDMA Fan State Indicating board (WFSI) indicates the fan status.

Figure 28-1 Connection of WFSM board

The WFSM is connected with the WFIU at the rear side of the subrack using the MOLEX blind match
connectors for transferring power and signals. Additionally, it is connected with the WFSI on the front
panel of the fan drawer using cables to indicate the operational status of the fan drawer.
