1 Changes in the BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide

This chapter describes the changes in the BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide.

2 Introduction to Initial Configuration

Initial configuration creates the configuration script for the equipment to start to operate.

3 Data Preparation for Initial Configuration

In the BSC6900 initial configuration, some data is obtained from the data sheets after negotiation with other network elements. The negotiated data includes the global data, equipment data, interface data, base station data, and cell data.

4 Initial Configuration Procedures

BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide

About This Document

This chapter describes the process of creating the initial configuration script for the BSC6900.

5 Typical Configuration Script

The typical configuration scripts used in this document derive from the documents related to the BSC6900. The typical configuration scripts concern global data, equipment data, network interfaces, base stations, and cells.

6 Configuring the Global Information

This chapter describes how to configure the global information. The global data configuration provides a basis for all the other configurations, and therefore must be determined during network planning. After the BSC6900 global data configuration takes effect, do not modify it unless the network is replanned.

7 Configuring the Equipment Data

This chapter provides the example script for configuring the equipment data for the BSC6900, including the system information and the data about the cabinet, subrack, and board.

8 Configuring the Interfaces

This chapter describes how to configure the GSM interfaces, including the Ater, A, Gb, and Pb interfaces.

9 Configuring a BTS

This section describes how to configure a BTS and its cells for BSC6900. The configurations described in this section enable a BTS to receive and transmit signals over air interfaces and meet the requirements of the radio coverage in the cells. In addition, they also enable BSC6900 to centrally control and manage radio resources for the BTS.

10 Configuration Reference Information

This chapter describes the concepts, principles, rules, and conventions related to data configuration.

2 Introduction to Initial Configuration

2 Introduction to Initial Configuration

Initial configuration creates the configuration script for the equipment to start to operate.

l

The configuration script can be created by running MML commands on the BSC6900 LMT. For the LMT operation guide, see the BSC6900 GSM LMT User Guide.

l

During commissioning, the script is imported to the BSC6900. For data modification after the BSC6900 starts operating, see the GBSS Reconfiguration Guide.

l

After the BSC6900 starts operating, operators can enable or disable features based on site requirements. The related data configuration does not belong to initial configuration. For details, see the GBSS Feature Activation Guide.

NOTE

The BSC6900 clock information is determined during network planning. In an all-IP over FE/GE network, you do not need to configure a clock source for the BSC6900, and at this time, the BSC use the local oscillator as default.

The clock source of the BSC6900 can be an external clock, line clock, or GPS clock.

External clock

An external clock can be a BITS clock or an external 8 kHz clock. When the clock source is an external clock, the BSC6900 receives the external clock from CLKIN0 or CLKIN1 on the GCUa/GCGa board.

l

Line clock

The line clock is the 8 kHz clock transmitted from an interface board to the GCUa board. It can be an A interface line clock or an Abis interface line clock. An A interface line clock is extracted by a BSC6900 A interface board from the MSC. An Abis interface line clock

If the SGSN and the MSC use the same clock source, you do not need to configure the Gb interface clock. If the SGSN and the MSC use different clock sources, you need to configure line clocks on both the A and Gb interface boards. In the latter case, set Use SGSN clock source to YES, and set Port for LINE1 and Back-up port for LINE1 to the numbers of the interface board ports carrying BC.

8.4.4 Configuring the User Plane of the A Interface (over IP)

This section describes how to configure the user plane of the A interface on the BSC6900 in IP transmission mode. You need to configure the IP path and IP route.

Prerequisite

The control plane of the IP-based A interface is configured. For details, see Configuring the Control Plane of the A Interface (over IP).

Procedure

Step 1

BSC6900 GSM Initial Configuration Guide

8 Configuring the Interfaces

NOTEInitial Configuration Guide 8 Configuring the Interfaces l IP paths between the BSC and the MSC

l

IP paths between the BSC and the MSC must be configured in fully-connected topology. That is, each BSC communication IP address must be configured with IP paths to all MSC communication IP addresses over the A interface.

l

If the type of IP path is QoS, the IP path can match any path type in the TRMMAP table.

l

If the type of IP path is non-QoS, the type should be the one mapped to the service in the TRMMAP table.

l

You can run the SET PHBMAP command to set the priority of an IP path type.

l

The transmission bandwidth and reception bandwidth can be set according to the actual network planning.

Step 2

Optional: Run the ADD IPRT command to add an IP route when the layer 3 networking mode is used between the BSC6900 and the MSC/MGW. To add more IP routes, repeat this step until all desired IP routes are added.

NOTE

NOTE

 

IP routes between the BSC and the MSC msut be configured in fully-connected topology. That is, each BSC communication port must be configured with IP routes to all MSC communication ports over the A interface.

Step 3

Optional: Run the LST GLOBALROUTESW command to query the value of the global route management switch. If the global route management function is not required but the global route management switch is set to ON, run the SET GLOBALROUTESW command to set the global route management switch to OFF.

Step 4

Run the SET TCTYPE command to set the TC DSP resource type. In this step, set The type of TC resource to ITC.
