BSSAP Related Failures


This chapter introduces and describes call failures related to
BSSAP and also discusses about possible troubleshooting
methods.
The failure cause, analysis and the possible solutions are
described in tables against each error as shown below.

ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_FchSetu
p_ClearCommand_Unspecified
TABLE 4 ERR_SPS_RLS A_BSS AP_FCHSETUP_CLEARCOMMAND_
UNSPECIFIED

Failure Name

ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_FchSetup_ClearCommand
_Unspecified

Failure Cause

When a call is being setup,MSC sends a


ClearCommand message to release the call. The
cause is unknown

Failure
analysis

1. non-standard cause value in A-interface


protocol are carried in the Cause of
ClearCommand
2. The cause carried in ClearCommand is
Cause_A_CallProcessing. The cause value carried
in Layer3 is 0x1f. in this case, change it to the BSC
internal cause value
(ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_FchSetup_ClearComman
d_Unspecified). It is used a lot at switch side. Such
as timer expiration and access failure, this cause
value is filled in.

Possible
Solution

It is acceptable if the problem occurs occasionally,


otherwise, cooperate with MSC side to find out the
cause

TABLE 5 ERR_SPS_RLS A_BSS AP_TE_T3230

Failure Name

ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_TE_T3230

Failure Cause

When a call is being setup, after BSSAP sending


the CMServiceRequest or PagingResponse
message to MSC,if the SccpConnect message is
not received from the opposite side, T3230 expires

Possible
solution

1. Check No.7 signaling link,perhaps the link is


unstable
2. Traffic is too heavy at present. More signaling
links are needed.

ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_TE_Tass
ignment
TABLE 6 ERR_SPS_RLS A_BSS AP_TE_TASSIGNMENT

Failure
Name

ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_TE_Tassignment
When a handset originates a call or be called,BSSAP
sends an EV_S_AvfServiceAssignment message to
DSMP,if the EV_S_AvrAssignmentComplete message or
EV_S_AvrAssignmentFailure message is not received
from DSMP,the timer Tassignment expires.

Failure
Cause

Most likely causes:


1.timer Tassignment expires too soon
2. DSMP is configured with too many instances (more
than the number of DSMP instance that are supported).
3. DSMP CPU utilization is too high
4. SDM activation expires
1. Check the setting of the timer Tassignment on
CMP,the default value is 6000 (6 seconds).

Possible
Solution

2. Check if there are too many DSMP instances in the


correlation of RMP and DSMP (different DSMP version
supports different number of instance).
3. If DSMP CPU utilization is too high, add more modules
for DSMP
4. If SDM activation expires,the media stream between
SDU and CHM may be different, or the clock between
BSC and BTS is different. Check the fiber connections at
media plate and the SDU subcards.

TABLE 7 ERR_SPS_RLS A_BSS AP_FCHSETUP_RCVSCCPDISCONNECT

Failure
Name

ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_FchSetup_RcvSccpDisconnect
When a handset originates a call or be called, after
sending a CMServiceRequest or PagingResponse
message to MSC,SccpDisconnectmessage is
received,SCCP connection establishing fails or be
removed accidentally.

Failure
Cause

Most likely causes:


1. No.7 signaling link unstable or link is in wrong state.
2. SSN is in wrong state.
3. handset does not assign numbers correctly at MSC
side
4. cell CI is different from the CI at MSC side
1. Check the state of the signaling point on CMP with
database probe to see if it is 0

Possible
Solution

2. Check the BSC and MSC side to see if they are


configured with SSN (0, 1, 254) of the local end and the
opposite end
3. Make sure if the IMSI and ESN of the handset
distributes numbers correctly at MSC side
4. Make sure the cell CI in the call origination message
CMServiceRequest is configured correctly at MSC side.

Failure
Cause

When a call is setup, handset initiates the release on

Possible
Solution

No troubleshooting is needed

setup
TABLE 9 ERR_SPS_RLS A_BSS AP_TE_TFCHSETUP

Failure
Name

ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_TE_Tfchsetup

Failure
Cause

Timer Tfchsetup expires

Failure
Analysis

When a call is setup, BSC sends an


AbisdfBTSSetupmessage to BTS to request the
fundamental channel establishment, but the
AbisdrBTSSetupAck message that indicates fundamental
channel establishing is successful or unsuccessful is not
received from BTS, the timer Tfchsetup on CMP expires.
Most likely causes:
1. Timer Tfchsetup expires too soon, default value
should be 5000 (5 seconds).
2. fail to establish fundamental channel on BTS
3. CCM CPU utilization is too high
1. Check the lifecycle of the predefined timer Tfchsetup,
if it expires too soon, change the default value to 5000.

Possible
Solution

2. Check if there are enough CE and FO resource on


BTS.
3. If CCM CPU utilization is too high, adjust CCM CPU
overload threshold, or decrease antenna transmission
power to reduce users.

received, the T303 timer on CMP will expire.
Most likely causes:
1. T303 timer expires too soon
2. MSC side has problem on call processing

Possible
Solution

1.Check the timer T303 on CMP, default value is (6


seconds )
2. Find MSC call failure causes at MSC side. T303
indicates MSC side has problem to process this call. Use

Failure
Name

ERR_SPS_RLSA_BSSAP_TE_Txxp

Failure
Cause

Timer Txxp expires

Failure
Analysis

1. Upon receiving the assignment complete message,


CallHandler process sends an
A1rAssignmentCompletmessage to MSCe. If Ap interface
is supported, set the timer Txxp to wait for the
A1pfBearerUpdateRequestmessage from MSCe.
2. If the A1pfBearerUpdateRequestmessage from MSCe
is not received before Txxp expires, Txxp timer expires
too soon.
3. MSCe side has problem on call processing

Possible
Solution

1. Check the setting of timer Txxp on CMP. The default


value is 6 seconds
2. Find the call failure causes at MSCe side. Txxp
expiration indicates MSCe side has problem to process
the call. MSCe is needed to find out the problem cause.

message missing. It is acceptable if this failure occurs
occasionally.
2. If frame number checking is enabled, BTS and BSC
have different clock
3. Other causes: Bit error and etc.

3. If there are a lot of such failures, determine the


problem effect scope firstly: single base station, all base
stations (under an ABPM) or BSC
4. Once the effect scope is determined, disable the frame
number checking on the faulty BTS. If the situation
becomes better, it is believed that problem occurs
because the BTS clock and BSC clock are different.
Check the GPS, clock and the GCM board at BTS side

Mobile establishing fails; BSC has not received Preamble
sent by the mobile before timeout, but Idle frame can be
received.

Failure
Cause

There are many reasons for this abnormality. Every


problem in the system may cause failure in mobile
capturing. For example, wrong CHM version, parameters
for the mobile are inconsistent with that of base station
side, long code error, inconsistent RC and PN offset error
etc.
1. Check CHM version

Possible
Solution

2. Check failure reason submitted to abnormality probe


3. Check CE if there is residual forward CE in RB_FWDCE

Failure
Cause

There are many reasons for BSCs not receiving traffic

2.Channel list is wrongly added on either BTS or BSC
side, etc.
1. Check if Abis link is disconnected.

Failure
Name

SDM_Find_Fail_WaitConfigVTCTimeout
After SDM activation, SDM has not received
EV_S_AbafStartVocoderCoding message sent by DSPM
before timer is timeout.
The two possible reasons for this abnormality are:

Failure
Cause

1. Service negotiation fails between Level Three and


mobile and Level Three does not receive confirmation
message of the e mobile. Detailed reasons vary: for
example, the mobile does not receive confirmation
message on BS side, so that it does not return
confirmation message to BS. Or the mobile has received
confirmation message on BS side, but due to some
reason it does not return confirmation to BS. The
abnormality may also be caused by inconsistent
parameters between the mobile and BS side (e.g. RC
inconsistent) causing the mobile not to detect
confirmation message on base station side.
2. Abnormal Level Three process. After successful
negotiation with the mobile, it has not sent
EV_S_AbafStartVocoderCoding message to SDM, which
can be judged from signaling tracing.
1.Check if there are handshake messages
EV_S_UmfBSOrder and EV_S_UmrMSOrder of traffic
channel

Possible
Solution

2. If none of these messages exists; the reason might be


inconsistent parameters on MS and BS side. Check the
versions of MS and BS side.
3. If handshake is normal, check if there is
EV_S_AbafStartVocoderCoding message in signaling; if
there is no, DSPM has not sent message.

Failure
Cause

Reasons for this abnormality vary, for example, Abis link

frame during a period (default time is 18s).

Failure
Cause

Possible
Solution

44

Reasons vary; it might be normal abnormal reasons,


which is subjected to actual situation. For example, while
the reverse radio link is very bad, the abnormality will be
submitted. This is normal release. However, it is not
necessarily normal; there probably are many underlying
system problems, e.g. in calling process, due to certain
reason the mobile releases itself spontaneously while BS
does not receive release message of the mobile, so that
after a period abnormality will be submitted. Thus it
needs to be checked why the mobile releases itself
spontaneously. Besides, inconsistent parameters
between the mobile and BS side and PN offset error
probably cause the failure.
1. Check MS and BS side parameters (PN offset, version)
2. If parameters are consistent, then MS releases itself
spontaneously; this is failure within normal range.

Analysis

Possible
Solution

54

1. Lost of release message may cause this abnormality,


but the possibility is comparatively small;
2. When basic channel undergoes handoff, as BSC
handoff is completed early, setup application for
supplementary channel reaches BTS before BTS basic
channel handoff completes, which is caused by flow; the
possibility is comparatively large.
Changing flow is suggested. Supplementary channel
module of DSPM makes SCH setup application after FCH

Failure
Cause

Records to which RS list corresponds is unavailable

Failure
Analysis

The main reason for this failure is scheduling algorithm


of supplementary channel; subscriber A of
supplementary channel needs to reserve another
subscriber B of supplementary channel because of
scheduling; however, afterwards subscriber A data FCH
is released and actually FCH no longer exists when
supplementary channel is set up. Therefore, there is no
corresponding record in RS list.

Cause

During handoff judge, as there is no suited frequency


under the pilot, target pilot aggregate can not be added.

Failure
Analysis

Possible
Solution

1. For soft handoff, this reason value means there is no


suitable frequency under the pilot; this ought not to
occur, because if there is no suitable carrier, Level Three
should not submit it; if this do occurs, then it is failure.
2. For semi-soft and hard handoff, the carrier with the
smallest transmission power in the first pilot is selected
as the fundamental carrier, therefore for other pilots
there probably is no such carrier, and it is normal to
submit the reason.
For soft handoff, check if frequency for soft handoff is

Failure
Cause

During soft or softer handoff, when the cell which has set
up leg is released and at the same time one leg is going
to be added, the handoff fails as the process does not
support both release and set up leg at the same time.

Possible
Solution

If handoff happens frequently, handoff has been started


when the release has not been finished; it is possible to
meet this case. It is normal condition; if there is no
handoff and an ordinary call meets this kind of failure, it
is possible that the internal processing is stopped.

Failure
Cause

During call setup, RCM main processing fails to send


message to Handler processing. The reason is all subprocessing are in busy status; RCM has no idle Handler
processing.

Possible
Solution

When this failure happens, if the call number is more


than processing limitation, then it is normal condition
( limitation: Hirs CCM 300,BDM 75,IP CCM 600); If a few
of calls also meet this failure, it is possible that OSS has
changed the processing limitation value, please contact

Analysis

3.BTS SDH transmission is not stable


4.Too many sub-cards in CHM board, ( at present ALL IP
supports 6, HIRS supports 4 chipsets)
5.CES code is abnormal, the resource is not released
6.The upper level is abnormal and the release is not
started
1.If CPU usage ratio is too high, block some sub-cards

Possible
