In Figure 1-1, RNP&O engineers must pay more attention to RAN network side. RNC is connected to:
l l l l l

NodeB through the lub interface MSC of core network through the lu-CS interface SGSN of core network through the lu-PS interface Other RNCs through the lur interface so that RNCs exchange information with each other Cell broadcast center (CBC) through the lu-BC interface

Wherein, BSC6800 represents Huawei RNC model in the following chapters. Different IP addresses are assigned for different WCDMA network and OM clients, so user names and passwords are different. Equipment room operators manage and distribute user names and passwords uniformly, so you must follow rules in equipment room in using user names and passwords.

1.3 Introduction
The document includes the operations in the equipment room for radio network planning and optimization engineers during the radio network optimization. It helps them analyze routine network optimization problems, such as call drop, handover, and pilot pollution. This document details operations related to the RNC, NodeB, and M2000, including tracing signaling of single subscriber under the RNC, MML command line, tracing signaling in both user plane and control plane, collecting and converting RTWP data, tracing real-time performance and cell performance. Different items are traced in different test tasks. The following section introduces the above-mentioned items by taking the equipment room of a site as an example. There is an RNC and a core network, and an M2000 at the site. The following table lists the IP address, user name, and password of each NE:
Device IP Address Mask User Name Password

Before performing operations in the equipment room, you must identify IP address, user name, and password of each NE to avoid mistakes. For example, to telnet to NodeB, you must configure necessary routes.

& Note : Generally, the IP address of the RNC is different from that of the NodeB. To maintain the NodeB remotely, you need to run the following commands to add a BAM route to RNC: 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page18 , Total220

WCDMA OMC Operation Guide Internal Open


l

For the RNC, run the command route add 12.11.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0 10.238.23.95 - p. For the M2000, run the command route add 12.11.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0 10.238.23.84 - p. If the LMT is connected with a LAN switch of RNC, the next hop is RNC. If the LMT is connected with a LAN switch of M2000, the next hop is M2000. For details about route configuration, see documents related to the BSC6800.

1.4 Rules and Precautions in Equipment Room


For RNP&O engineers, follow related precautions as below:
l l l

l l

Follow the time schedule and rules for engineer to enter and leave equipment room. Do not eat and drink in equipment room, and do not bring glasses into equipment room. Different OM clients use different user names and passwords in equipment room. Equipment room operators manage and distribute user names and passwords uniformly, so you must follow related rules when using them. Do not perform other operations except necessary RNP&O operations, such as board reset and system parameter modification. Equipment room operators must ensure usability of platform. For example, there is enough space on the server disk, and both sending RNO engineers tracing data files and deleting them on clients should be in time, otherwise, excessive data files on clients take up space. Do not privately create folders in the folder FTP on BAM server. For the convenience of management, the files are temporarily saved in FTP\logdata\ directory. Do not copy files directly from operation platforms with any storage medium, because there are more requirements on security of servers in equipment room. If you need upload script files and download operation result files onto your portable computers, you can only use network cable of internal maintenance network segment. For system security, uploading files to BAM server is prohibited without permission. In BSC6800 performance management system, if you need create a task, you need permission from equipment room operators. Otherwise, excessive tasks might affect RNC performance.

2 RNC OM System
2.1 Installing and Starting RNC
RNP&O engineers use BSC6800 at RNC side most frequently in equipment room, so they can install BSC6800 OM on the clients by default.

2.2 Tracing Signaling at Standard Interfaces of BSC6800 Single Subscriber


2.2.1 Background
When locating problems, such as call drop, you need view signaling reported by the UE before call drop and analyze the signaling based on signaling recorded at RNC side. Provided with IMSI number, you can enable tracing signaling at standard interfaces of single subscriber under RNC.

2.2.2 Procedure
To trace signaling at standard interfaces of single subscriber, perform the following steps: 1) 2) 3) Double-click UE tracing (Standard Interface Message) in Maintenance Navigator. Select All standard interface in the pop-up dialog box. Type the IMSI number of UE to be traced in the IMSI text box.

& Note : You report the last four digits of IMSI to equipment room operators, because the first 11 digits are the fixed. For example, an IMSI in a WCDMA network is "45419500000****". The first 11 digits vary in different WCDMA networks.

4)

Select All standard interface during tracing signaling at standard interfaces of single subscriber or select Specify standard interface for tracing signaling at partial standard interfaces, and select one or more interfaces of lub interface, lu interface, Uu interface, and lur interface where the signaling must be traced from Select standard interface message in the right.

Figure 2-3 shows the tracing signalling at standard interfaces of single subscriber.

For the same IMSI, the system traces signaling at standard interfaces of single subscriber for one time under RNC. If you trace single subscriber on one LMT, you cannot trace the signaling of the same subscriber on another LMT. Under the same RNC, the current version of Trace Viewer supports tracing signaling at standard interfaces of six single subscribers at most at the same time. When multiple engineers start tracing signaling at standard interfaces of single subscriber at the same time for test, they need coordinate resources. During tracing signaling at standard interfaces of single subscriber, closing Trace window and clicking Stop Tracing are different. Close Trace window to export log file for tracing. Copy the file, send it to related engineers, and delete the file in time. When you click Stop Tracing, The log file to be traced is not closed. Copy the imported log file, and save it. If the file is deleted, data is missing upon next recording.

2.3 Tracing Connection Performance of RNC Single Subscriber


2.3.1 Content
When locating problems such as call drop, you need analysis the problems based on tracing connection performance of single subscriber recorded at RNC side. Provided with IMSI number, you can enable Tracing connection performance of single subscriber under RNC. During routine test of network optimization, you usually trace the following four connection performances:
l l l l

UL SIR (measured SIR in radio uplink set) UL SIRtarget (target SIR in radio uplink set) UL BLER (BLER on uplink transmission channel) DL Tx Code Power (downlink transmit code power) PCPICH (Ec/No&RSCP) AMR mode DL BLER (downlink block error rate) HO delay (handover delay) DL throughput & bandwidth UL throughput & bandwidth DL traffic vol (downlink traffic volume) UL traffic vol (uplink traffic volume) UL Phy BER (uplink physical channel bit error rate) UE TxPower (UE transmit power) UL SIRerror (uplink signal-to-interference ratio error)

You might also trace the following connection performances:


l l l l l l l l l l l

2.3.2 Procedure
To trace connection performance of single subscriber, perform the following steps: 1) In Maintenance Navigator, double click Connection performance monitoring. In the Monitoring item drop-down menu, select UL SIR. Type IMSI number of UE to be traced in IMSI field, shown as in Figure 2-9.

The system automatically saves the tracing file in the default directory. Close the window or right click on the menu after tracing, and select Stop monitoring to stop tracing

3)

The method for tracing Connection performance of UL SIRtarget, UL BLER, and DL Tx Code Power is similar with that of UL SIR. The difference lies in that you select UL SIRtarget, UL BLER, or DL Tx Code Power in Monitoring item drop-down menu.

2.4 Tracing RNC Cell Performance


2.4.1 Content
When locating problems in a cell, you need view the performance specifications of the cell. If you have the RNC ID and cell ID, you can start tracing cell performance on BSC6800. Cell performance usually includes: 1 2 3 4 5 PCPICH TxPower (transmit power of cell PCPICH pilot) Tx Carrier Power (transmit power of cell downlink carrier) DCH Subscriber Num (number of DCH subscribers of cell) CCH Subscriber Num (number of CCH subscribers of cell) Cell Code Tree (monitoring cell code tree)

In RNCv1.7, Cell User NUM (number of cell subscribers) and Cell Cmb UserNum (number of cell cmb subscribers) are newly added. DCH User Num (number of cell 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page29 , Total220

dedicated channel subscribers) and CCH User Num (number of cell common channel subscribers) are deleted. RNCv1.7 enhances the function of monitoring Cell User NUM, combines DCH User Num with CCH User Num, and adds the function of monitoring the number of HSPDA subscribers. As a result, it can monitor DCH User Num, CCH User Num, and the number of HSPDA subscribers in the same performance monitoring task. You might also trace the following cell performances: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 HS-DSCH Provide Bit rate (bit rate provided by HS-DSCH) HS-DSCH Min Power Required (minimum power of HS-DSCH) DL Total Equivalent User Monitor (downlink total equivalent user monitor) UL Total Equivalent User Monitor (downlink total equivalent user monitor) DL CAC Monitor (downlink access grant judgment monitor) UL CAC Monitor (downlink access grant judgment monitor) Node Sync (node synchronization) RTWP (received total bandwidth power)

2.4.2 Procedure
To trace cell performance, perform the following steps: 1) In Maintenance Navigator, double click Cell performance monitoring. Select PCPICH TxPower in the pop-up dialog box. Type RNC ID and cell ID to be traced in RNC ID and Cell ID entry area Click OK to start tracing cell performance. The system automatically saves the tra cing file in BSC6800 LMT OM Installation Directory\Rtm by default, such as: C:\H WLMT\BSC6800V100R002ENGC03B092\Rtm. After tracing, close the window or right click on the menu to select Stop monitoring to stop tracing The method for tracing cell performance of Tx Carrier Power, DCH Subscriber Num, CCH Subscriber Num, and Cell Code Tree is similar with that of PCPICH TxPower The difference lies in that you select Tx Carrier Power, DCH User Num, CCH User Num, or Cell Code Tree in Monitoring item drop-down menu, shown in Figure 2-10.

2.5 Tracing RNC Calls


The BSC6800 LMT provides abundant functions of tracing subscribers, listed in Table 2-1. It can trace the messages at standard interface of UE, messages at user plane and signaling plane of UE, and even multiple calls. Operation methods and procedure are similar to that of tracing signaling at standard interfaces of single subscriber. Table 2-1 List of tracing on BSC6800
Type of traced task Tracing messages at standard interfaces of UE Function description Tracing signaling messages at lu interface, lur interface, lub interface, and Uu interface of specified UE during calling. You must specify the IMSI, TMSI, P-TMSI, or IMEI of UE to start tracing. Tracing all signaling messages at four standard interfaces or tracing messages at specified interfaces. Tracing messages at UE interface and signaling interface of UE during calling. You must specify the UE (IMSI, TMSI, P-TMSI, or IMEI is also optional) to start tracing. You select messages at subscriber interface and signaling interface through selecting tracing events. Tracing messages imported in multiple callings connected consecutively to the specified cell. The number of calling connected consecutively to the cell is specified to N, If the number of current callings connected to the cell is N, the system does not trace new incoming callings. If the number of current callings connected to the cell is less than N due to calling termination, the software adds the new incoming calling to task list automatically. Through selecting traced events fro selecting traced messaged type, you select one or more cells. If no cell is added, the system traces all BSC6800 cells. Tracing NBAP common messages or USER_VOLUME events in the specified cells. Wherein, USER_VOLUME contains some customized messages which reflect the statistics information of UE in the cell. Specify a cell by typing cell ID. Select the types of messages to be traced by selecting tracing events. Cells to be traced must be already activated. The information to be traced is much, so this has little impact on system operation. You can trace 32 cells at most at the same time due to the limit by system. If you request are met by using lub interface, then use it as possible.

2.6 Tracing RNC Protocol Messages at Transport Network Layer


When the interface link is problematic, you can locate and analyze the problem by tracing transport network layer, including tracing the following messages:
l l l l

QAAL2 protocol messages SCCP protocol messages MTP3B protocol messages SAAL protocol messages

Tracing protocol messages at transport network layer does not belong to frequently-used operations by RNP&O engineers. Table 2-2 lists the traced messages at transport network layer on BSC6800. Table 2-2 Traced messages at transport network layer on BSC6800
Type of traced tasks QAAL2 protocol message SCCP protocol message Function description It helps locate problems of AAL2 setup failure and Abnormal release of AAL2. It helps judge whether the local or the opposite is normal by whether to send ESTABLISH_REQUEST. The SCCP protocol message includes the connection-oriented and non-connection-oriented message. It helps locate problems of lu connection setup failure and abnormal release. The MTP3B protocol message includes the upper layer subscriber (QAAL2 and SCCP) message, the MTP3B signaling link test message, and MTP3B signaling network management message. It helps judge whether the target signaling point is unreachable or MTP3B link is unavailable. If the corresponding SAAL link is available, the method for locating problematic point is to check whether OPC, DPC, and SLS are matching and consistent with the negotiated data in the received and sent SLTM messages, and whether It helps judge whether the SAAL link is unavailable. If only messages are sent from RNC but not sent to RNC in the traced message, the bottom layer link (PVC) is congested or the opposite end work abnormally.

2.7 Tracing RNC MNCDT


Missing Ncell Detect (MNCDT) means that the RNC misses configuring some neighboring cells in the neighboring cell handover list for each cell. It includes intra-frequency MNCDT (Intra Freq), inter-frequency MNCDT (Inter Freq), and inter-system MNCDT (Inter RAT). The MNCDT information reported by UEs is delivered to CHR, thus facilitating optimization of neighboring cells. To implement MNCDT, the following functions must be provided: Function 1: RNC supports inter-frequency MNCDT. To implement this function, the measurement and control information of inter-frequency hard handover based on period or event must be delivered, and RNC must receive a valid measurement report for analysis. That is to say, this function is closely related to inter-frequency handover. LMT initiates and terminates inter-frequency MNCDT, queries status, and delivers the result to CHR. Function 2: RNC supports inter-system MNCDT. To implement this function, the measurement and control information of inter-system handover based on period or event must be delivered, and RNC must receive a valid measurement report for analysis. That is to say, this function is closely related to inter-system handover. LMT initiates and terminates inter-system MNCDT, queries status, and delivers the result to CHR To trace MNCDT, perform the following steps: 1) 2) In Maintenance, double click MNCDT. Select the type to be traced in the pop-up dialog box. Click OK. The system automatically saves the tracing file in installation directory\ client\output\main\BSC6800\BSC6800V100R006C01B040\trace by default, in the format of office direction name_trace type_year-month-date-hour-minute-second. tmf. For inter-frequency MNCDT, enter uplink UARFCN, downlink UARFCN, start of primary scrambling code, and end of primary scrambling code. For inter RAT MNCDT, enter NCC, BCC, start of BCCH ARFCN, and end of BCCH ARFCN.

2.8 Tracing RNC CDT/IFTS


This task can be used to trace the standard interface messages of the UE, and the messages on the user plane and signaling plane of the UE in a call. Through the tracing task, the operator can monitor the signaling interaction process on each standard interface, signaling interaction on the user plane, and the uplink and downlink data in a call. To perform CDT tracing, the operator can specify the UE to be traced, the interface, and message type or can set a cell ID, SPUa subsystem of the cell, service type, and RRC setup cause. The powerful user plane statistics tracing function of the CDT and the printing tracing function of the CDL are sharp weapons that locate HSPA digital transmission problems, user plane problems, and internal product problems. The following takes V29 as an example to introduce the startup interface and common tracing setting interfaces of the CDT tracing function. Figure 2-1 shows the CDT startup interface, on which CDT tracing based on the UE ID is performed.

Figure 2-21 CDT startup interface in V29 (tracing based on UE ID) In addition to CDT tracing by UE ID (IMSI, TMSI, or IMEI), a cell such as the IOS can be specified; the system can then randomly select a UE to perform CDT tracing. This is called IFTS. The IFTS tracing specially applies to the case in which the fault is known but the UE ID cannot be determined.

2.10 Editing and Executing RNC Batch Processing Scripts


2.10.1 Editing RNC Batch Processing Scripts
You can use MML command line directly to execute one or two commands on BSC6800. When repeating executing the same command (such as for adding hundreds of neighbor cells), you need not execute commands one by one by hand because it wastes time and causes mistakes. BSC6800 LMT provides powerful batch processing function. For example, if you create correct batch processing scripts for adding neighbor cells, you can use it to add hundreds of neighbor cells quickly. The following procedure introduces a method for editing scripts to add intra-frequency neighbor cells, using UltraEdit, a text file editing software. You can use multiple methods for editing scripts, or import scripts automatically by database. 1) Click icon in BSC6800 OM, and switch to MML Client window. Type "ADD INTRAFREQCELL" in Command Input field, and enter. An interface appears as shown in Figure 2-29.

For example, if you add 20 intra-frequency neighbor cells on RNC1, you must copy the command 20 times by using UltraEdit. Because you add intra-frequency neighbor cells, you use the similar command and modify the corresponding parameters. The command is as below: ADD INTRAFREQCELL: CELLID=12345, RNCID=1, NCELLID=23456, READSFNIND=NOT_READ, CELLINDIVIDALOFFSET=0, CELLSFORBIDDEN1A=AFFECT, CELLSFORBIDDEN1B=AFFECT, QOFFSET1SN=0, QOFFSET2SN=0; In the previous command line, a complete command consists of command, colon (:), parameters (separated by commas), and semicolon. In the command, you need modify parameters corresponding to CELLID, RNCID, and NCELLID. 4) Select Column > Column Mode You can edit the text file. Column editing function of UltraEdit helps you easily modify parameters corresponding to CELLID, RNCID, and NCELLID. To cancel the operation, reselect Column > Column Mode. Figure 2-30 shows starting column editing function in UltraEdit software.

If you execute a batch processing script at once, select Execute now and Operator Interface, then the commands are executed one by one. If an error occurs in MML command, the executing stops and the system prompts the error. Operator interference might stop executing batch processing scripts or ignore the MML command for continuous executing. If you do not select Operator Interfere, click OK directly, BSC will execute the batch processing script automatically. If an error occurs in MML command, the system executes the next command, ignoring the MML command with error. If you need modify multiple parameters and execute multiple scripts, executing scripts might affect the system greatly. Therefore you need set the system so that the system automatically starts executing the script at 0:00 and saves result. Select Execute by schedule and fill the time for executing the script.

& Note:

2.11 Other Optimizations of RNC


2.11.1 Importing and Exporting CFGMML File
RNP&O engineers need know actual parameters in RNC operation, to judge whether the actual parameters are consistent with the configured parameters, and to query data related to RNC upon solving problems. Therefore the engineers need export data configuration file CFGMML.txt from RNC, in two ways: 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page62 , Total220

WCDMA OMC Operation Guide Internal Open


l l

RNC imports CFGMML files automatically at 2:00 a.m. In MML command line, generate data configuration file in time from RNC by executing EXP CFGMML command. Executing this command takes several minutes.

V1.5 RNC cannot generate CFGMML files automatically, but you can generate CFGMML file by creating scheduled tasks executing ADD SCHTSK. The data configuration file generated from RNC is named in the format of CFGMML + time.txt, such as CFGMML-20050506020425.txt. The data configuration file is saved in D:\Bsc6800\BAM\FTP. To export and upload MML file, perform the following steps: 1) Start RNC OM, type EXP CFGMML in MML command line, and execute the command

You need wait several minutes before CFGMML file is imported. 2) Start FTP embedded in RNC OM, and upload CFGMML file to your computer from BAM

3)

Click the icon

2.11.2 Extracting CHR Log


CHR log is a detailed call record in RNC, helpful to call drop and access problem analysis by engineers. You can view CHR logs by using Nastar of version superior to 4.0 (you cannot view CDL of RNC of version inferior to 1.3) or by using Insight plus. For how to use Insight plus, see 8.5.4. CHR log is automatically saved by RNC:

In BAM installation directory of BSC6800, such as D:\Bsc6800\BAM\LoadData\FamLogFmt. In format of shelf number of RNC + Log + time.log, such as 09Log20050424000044.log. The first two digits stand for the number of the frame of NodeB configured on RNC. Digits after "Log" stand for the time when CHR log is saved. For RNCv1.5, in the format of shelf number of RNC + Log + start time_end time.log.bz2, such as 01Log20060217000017_20060217030504.log.bz2. For RNCv1.6, in the format of shelf number of RNC + Log + start time_end time.log.bz2, such as 05Log20060612000208_20060612235828.log.bz2.

2.11.3 Extracting Traffic Measurement Data Files


Traffic measurement data files are periodically saved by the RNC, one file every half an hour. You use the file for analyzing traffic measurement data through Nastar software. The traffic measurement file imported into Nastar tool is the original data file, unrelated to whether traffic measurement tasks are registered. During routine work in equipment room, extract all RNC1.3 traffic measurement data of previous day in FTP\PerfFile on BAM server of BSC, all RNC1.5 data in FTP\MeasResult. The file for one day is about 32 Mbit, too large to send by Email. Different project teams have different rules on how to obtain large traffic measurement file from equipment room. RNC1.3 traffic measurement files are saved in installation directory on BAM in BSC6800, such as D:\BSC6800\BAM\FTP\PerfFile. RNC 1.3 traffic measurement files are named by default in the format of PerfFile + data + time + RNCID.xml. RNC1.5 traffic measurement files are saved in installation directory on BAM in BSC6800, such as D:\BSC6800\BAM\FTP\MeasResult. RNC 1.3 traffic measurement files are named by default according to time, such as A20060215.0000+0800-0100+0800_EMS-NORMAL.mrf.bz2. Customizing and extracting traffic measurement data in RNCv1.6: Traffic measurement of RNCv1.6 falls into M2000 version and NASTAR version. Traffic measurement of M2000 inherits that of RNCv15, customized by M2000. You can query 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page66 , Total220

traffic measurement through M2000. For this version, traffic measurement files within 72 hours are saved in D:\BSC6800\BAM\FTP\MeasResult. Traffic measurement of NASTAR serves the NASTAR software. It is a full-index traffic measurement file. Usually we use this file. It is saved in D:\BSC6800\BAM\FTP\NastarResult. You can download the above-mentioned two types of traffic measurement files through FTP. The system names traffic measurement files based on time by default, such as A20060313.0000+0800-0030+0800_NASTAR.mrf.bz2. Customizing and collecting traffic measurement data in RNCv1.7: The method of extracting traffic measurement in RNCv1.7 is almost the same as that in RNCv1.6. The system names traffic measurement files based on time by default, such as A20060313.0000+0800-0030+0800_NASTAR.mrf.bz2 Traffic measurement extracted from M2000 is saved in D:\BSC6800\BAM\FTP\ MeasResult, such as A20061027.1630+0800-1700+0800_EMS-NORMAL.mrf.bz2. Traffic measurement extracted from NASTAR is saved in D:\BSC6800\BAM\FTP\ NastarResult, such as A20061027.1630+0800-1700+0800_EMS-NASTAR.mrf.bz2.

2.11.4 Tracing IOS


IOS is short for intelligent optimization system. You need to start IOS tracing on RNC OM console. This function is similar to tracing a single subscriber, but you do not need to enter the subscriber IMSI. Since IOS tracing affects the system operation, you are recommended to set Max calls simultaneously traced to a smaller value and not to trace all events at the same time. The file is named in the format of .tmf, such as RNC1_IOS_2006-04-13-16-08-02.tmf. The file is saved on the local OM console where you start IOS tracing. The file path an d name can be changed. The file is saved at \HW LMT\client\output\main\BSC6800\ BSC6800 version\trace by default.

3.7 Starting Simulated Load on NodeB in M2000


3.7.1 Background
NodeBs are in large numbers. If you start simulated load on a batch of NodeBs in M2000, the workload is heavy. To avoid this, you can perform batch processing operations on NodeB by using M2000. According to the actual situation, the following section describes the method for staring and stopping simulated load on NodeB. On MML Command interface, M2000 classifies NodeB according to types of NodeB. M2000 classifies NodeB to NodeB3806A, NodeB3806, NodeB3802C, and NodeB3812. In M2000, you can select NodeBs of one type for starting simulated load in batch processing. Namely, you execute the following command to start simulated load of various NodeBs according to types: STR DLSIM: LR=50;

3.7.2 Procedure
To start simulated load on NodeB, perform the following steps: 1) 2) In M2000, click MML Command to switch M2000 window to MML Command interface Select NodeB3806A on the tree in the left pane, and click the check box BTS3806AV100R003ENGC02B075 to select all BTSs of 3806A type Ticks are displayed in the selected NodeBs.

Figure 3-6 Starting 50% simulated load on NodeB3806A in M2000 3) Type "STR DLSIM" in the right Command Input (L), and enter Local Cell ID and Load Ratio (%) text box are displayed. If you type nothing in Local Cell ID text box, all cells under the NodeB will be loaded. 4) Type required ratio in Load Ratio (%) text field

Fox example, you type 50 in Load Ratio (%) text field to start 50% simulated load. 5) 6) Click icon or press the shortcut key F9 to start simulated load on all NodeBs

The method for starting simulated load on NodeBs of different types, such as NodeB3806, NodeB3802C, and NodeB3812 is similar to that of NodeB3806A.

& Note: During starting simulated load on NodeB of the same type, click the check box before the NodeB on which you need not start simulated load, and then no ticks are displayed in the check box before unselected NodeBs. Therefore these NodeBs with ticks are started simulated load, and those NodeBs 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page80 , Total220
l

WCDMA OMC Operation Guide Internal Open

without ticks are not started. For example, if you need not start simulated load on 3802_pohing_B, 801310_WarwickHouse_B, 801310_WarwickHouse_C, and 801170_KingHouse_A, you unselect these four NodeBs and no ticks are displayed in the check box before them. Figure 3-7 shows starting 50% simulated load on NodeB 3802C. M2000 classifies NodeB according to NodeB types. If multiple RNCs are in the serving network, NodeBs of the same type might be controlled by different RNCs. If you need start simulated load on all NodeBs under an RNC, do not select NodeBs to be loaded one by one, start simulated load on NodeB by using batch processing scripts, detailed in 3.10.2 . If you need start simulated load and change power of command channels in a project at the same time, ensure to change power of command channels before you start simulated load. Because simulated load volume is calculated based on CPICH as a benchmark, starting simulated load before changing power of CPICH pilot causes that simulated load volume does not meet requirements.

3.8 Stopping Simulated Load on NodeB in M2000


In M2000, stopping simulated load on NodeB in M2000 is the similar to that of starting simulated load. On MML Command interface, stop simulated load on NodeB3806A, NodeB3806, NodeB3802C, and NodeB3812 respectively. Stop simulated load on NodeB of the same type in batch processing. Stop simulated load on all NodeBs according to NodeB type by executing the STP DLSIM; command as shown in Figure 3-8:

& Note: If you have not started simulated load on a NodeB, stopping simulated load on this NodeB leads to an RL setup failure every 128 times. This problem will be solved in updated version of NodeB V100R003C02B075

3.9 Querying Starting Simulated Load on NodeB


In M2000, querying starting simulated load on NodeB is similar to starting simulated load on NodeB. On MML Command interface, query starting simulated load on NodeB3806A, NodeB3806, NodeB3802C, and NodeB3812 respectively. Query starting simulated load on NodeB of the same type in batch processing. Query stopping simulated load on all NodeBs by executing the DSP DLSIM; command: If you do not use M2000 in NodeB OM, query starting simulated load on a single NodeB by executing the DSP DLSIM; command. 4.4 details this method. On RNC (BSC6800) OM interface, you can query starting simulated load on cells under a NodeB. You can query the downlink maximum transmit power of the cell by using timely monitoring cell performance function. Figure 3-9 shows querying downlink maximum transmit power in BSC6800 OM.

3.10 Editing and Executing Scripts for Starting and Stopping Simulated Load on NodeB in M2000
3.10.1 Editing Scripts for Starting and Stopping Simulated Load on NodeB in M2000
In M2000, if you need start and stop simulated load on multiple NodeBs at the same time, and NodeBs are not of the same type, starting and stopping simulated load on NodeB one by one are difficult and easy to be wrong. M2000 provides batch processing function, so you can start and stop simulated load on candidate sites quickly by editing scripts in command format. In M2000:
l

The script for starting simulated load is The script for stopping simulated load is

STR DLSIM: LR=50; {NodeB 1, NodeB 2,}


l

STP DLSIM; {NodeB 1, NodeB 2,} & Note:


l l l

The commands for starting and stopping simulated load are ended with a semicolon. In the brace, the names of NodeBs on which simulated load is started and stopped are listed, including that there is only one NodeB in the brace. If multiple NodeBs on which simulated load are started and stopped can be listed in the brace in one command, or can be listed in multiple commands while a brace includes only one NodeB name, listed as below:
STR DLSIM: LR=50; {NodeB 1} STR DLSIM: LR=50; {NodeB 2}

NodeB names must be consistent with names in M2000, otherwise M2000 cannot identify them. The NodeB names are obtainable from RNP planning database, and exporting NodeB names from M2000 is strongly recommended. The section 3.11 introduces the method for exporting NodeB names.

3.10.2 Executing Batch Processing Scripts for Starting and Stopping Simulated Load on NodeB in M2000
To execute batch processing scripts for starting and stopping simulated load on NodeB in M2000, perform the following steps: 1) Double-click the M2000 icon to start M2000 OM system You can start and stop simulated load in M2000 only when authorized as an administrator.

3.16 Extraction of NodeB traffic measurement data on the M2000


The R3 of the M2000 and later versions supports NodeB traffic measurement. The NodeB traffic measurement function is made available with the introduction of the RNC V17. For details on the counters in each version, refer to the corresponding document. The counters of the NodeB include hardware resource usage statistics, Iub bandwidth consumption statistics, HSDPA feature, and HSUPA feature. These counters are very important for the network performance analysis, subsequent network optimization and network maintenance. As there are many NodeB NEs, the traffic measurement of a NodeB is extracted by the M2000. That is, the M2000 automatically collects the traffic measurement data from the NodeB and saves it.

3.16.1 Establishment of a data export task on the M2000


After obtaining the traffic measurement data of a NodeB, the M2000 imports it to the database and makes relevant treatments (for example, time summarization/cell summarization) to help you query the traffic measurement indexes. On the M2000, you can query the traffic measurement indexes of a NodeB in the same way as querying 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page107 , Total220

WCDMA OMC Operation Guide Internal Open

those of an RNC. For details, see "Customization and generation of a query report on the M2000". The M2000 does not provide the default function of backing up NodeB traffic measurement data. Therefore, the export function of the M2000 must be used. Through the export function, NodeB traffic measurement data is periodically exported and saved in a file for the Nastar to analyze. The procedure for using the data export function of the M2000 is as follows: 1) On the M2000 client, choose Maintenance -> Centralized Task Management to start the centralized task management.

Figure 3-39 Modifying task attributes 1) File format: The M2000 can export performance data to a .CSV, .XML, or .TXT fil e according to the requirement of the background analysis tool. Currently, the Na star supports the .CSV and .XML file formats. Export period: Set the export period to 5, 15, 30 or 60 minutes, depending on the requirements. Currently, a NodeB supports these four periods.

2)

If a certain export period is selected but no measurement units related to a NodeB are found at the bottom of the interface, the adaptation layer of the current NodeB does not support the export period. 3) 4) 5) Delay: The delay means how long after the data is prepared a request is originat ed to obtain NodeB data. Directory: The exported NodeB data is saved in the directory set in the attributes page. After the attributes of the task are modified, start the task. The traffic measureme nt file of the NodeB is automatically exported to the corresponding directory until t he task attributes are modified.

The following is an example of a log that records the export of a NodeB traffic measurement file.

Figure 3-40 File export log


l

In the M2000 R6B063SP03, the exported NodeB traffic measurement file supports two types: one is a file containing all measurement units for each NodeB and the other is a file containing all NodeBs for each measurement set. These two types can be set on the M2000. Usually, one file for one measurement set is adopted. How to set the export of a traffic measurement file according to NEs (namely, a file for a NodeB) is complicated and therefore a file for a NodeB is not recommended. When setting the file export on the M2000, you must set the value of FileExportMode in the configuration file in the /export/home/omc/var/etc/pm/tool/PmexpParam.xml directory to 0. Thus, the Nastar can import the exported NodeB traffic measurement file containing no host name or NE type name.

3.16.2 Obtaining of NodeB data


By default, the exported NodeB traffic measurement file is saved in the /export/home/omc/var/fileint/pm/ directory in the M2000. The name of the traffic measurement file indicates the data time segment. You can copy the corresponding data segments according to the analysis requirements. An example of NodeB traffic measurement file is as follows: pmresult_50331649_15_200707270030_200707270045.csv, which corresponds to a traffic measurement file within the time segment from 00:30 to 00:45 on July 27.

To achieve this goal, overwrite the UMSCUI file in the installation directory on your laptop with that in C:\HWLMT\NodeBV100R006\Data on the computer used to maintain NodeB in the equipment room.

4.2 Starting Local OM of NodeB


If remote OM is impossible due to transmission problems, engineers must check the work state and data by local NodeB OM. RNP&O seldom use local OM of NodeB, so the following describes local OM of NodeB. 1) When a NodeB is delivered from the factory, the default IP address of NMPT for local OM is 17.21.2.15. Engineers can change the IP address of laptop computer to ensure that the IP address of laptop computer and the NodeB is in the same network segment. Connect interfaces of the laptop computer and main control board of NodeB with direct connection network cable. Start NodeB OM, and the following operations are the same as that in 4.1 .

2) 3)

4.3 NodeB MML Commands


You seldom perform OM on a single NodeB during radio network planning and optimization. You perform related OM on NodeB on RNC and M2000. Though RTWP data is in a large quantity, you collect it on a single NodeB. To query data, record data, and modify parameters on NodeB, you can execute MML commands frequently in NodeB OM. Due to multiple MML commands of NodeB, you can query commands by typing keywords in Search function in NodeB OM as below: 1) 2) Type keywords in Keyword text box Enter, and corresponding MML commands are displayed

Table 4-1 lists and classifies MML commands used on NodeB in radio network planning and optimization by taking BTS3802C as the example. 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page117 , Total220

4.5 Collecting RTWP Data on NodeB


You can trace RTWP through RNC OM or OM of a single NodeB. The principles for tracing RTWP are as below:
l l l

Trace RTWP on a new NodeB to view the ambient interference. Trace RTWP to identify problems like call drop due to uplink interference in cells during network optimization. Trace RTWP on multiple NodeBs through NodeB OM.

When you trace RTWP on multiple NodeBs through RNC OM, and the data for tracing is in a large quantity, the tracing will consume resources of RNC and affect RNC performance. Therefore trace RTWP on multiple NodeBs through NodeB OM.

4.5.1 Displaying NodeB Slots


Before tracing RTWP on specified ID of NodeB, you must start NodeB OM, detailed in 4.1 . After starting NodeB OM, double click Basic Cabinet icon, and the physical structure of NodeB is displayed. The physical structure of NodeB 3806/3806A and NodeB 3802C is different. When tracing RTWP, pay attention to slot ID of radio frequency (RF) module. The slot ID is used later for starting RTWP test on different cells of a NodeB. I. NodeB 3806/3806A The NodeB 3806/3806A supports 31 (3 sectors, 1 carrier for each sector) configuration:

In RTWP Measurement dialog box, meanings of each field are as below: Subrack No is the Subrack number of RF shelf on NodeB, provided by NodeB OM system by default. Slot No is NTRX slot number queried in 4.5.1 . Report Period (s) is the period for reporting RTWP data to be traced. The default value is 1s. Pn (0.1 dbm) is thermal noise of receivers. The default value is 105.5 dBm. MDB FileName is the RTWP MDB files saved automatically by the system. Text FileName is the text file that data for tracing RTWP is saved as.

Files are named following "NxxxxxCyyyyy.txt" format (xxxxx is NodeB ID, and yyyyy is cell ID), such as N20690C58231. In this way, you can identify the NodeB ID and cell I D from the file name in post processing of RTWP files. Data files are saved in LMT def ault installation directory. Files for tracing RTWP are saved in different directories acco rding to NodeB types and versions, such as: C:\HW LMT\NodeBV100R003\BTS3806V100R003C02B075\Monitor C : \ HW L M T \ N o d e B V 1 0 0 R 0 0 3 \ B T S 3 8 0 2 C V 1 0 0 R 0 0 3 C 0 2 B 0 7 5 \ M o n i t o r Figure 4-20 shows saving RTWP files.

You must not trace RTWP of over 40 NodeBs. Tracing RTWP of excessive NodeBs leads to larger consumption of computer resources. If tracing RTWP of excessive NodeBs last for a long time, the computer might runs abnormally and loses tracing data. In BTS3806/3806A, the NTRX of the second cell corresponds to No. 5 slot, and the NTRX of the third cell corresponds to No. 8 slot. If you start tracing RTWP of the second cell, change 2 to 5 in Slot No. text box. If you start tracing RTWP of the third cell, type 8 in Slot No. text box. Files are named according to the previous rules so that you can know the Node ID and cell ID. You save RTWP data as text files while NodeB save RTWP automatically as MDB files. When you process RTWP data, you do not need MDB files. Therefore you must delete MDB files saved on the computer in time to save space after RTWP text files are copied. The files are saved automatically in the default installation directory, and different types of NodeB and types. Files for tracing RTWP are saved in different directories according to NodeB types and versions, such as: C:\HWLMT\NodeBV100R003\BTS3806V100R003C02B075\Monitor C:\HWLMT\NodeBV100R003\BTS3802CV100R003C02B075\Monitor Due to problems in designing BTS3802C software, during querying some BTSs, parameters of the second cell are displayed in the first cell, and parameters of the first cell is displayed after parameters of the second cell.

The following paragraphs are based on BTS3812E as an example. For the operation commands, see Table 4-3. After preparations, use the antenna by following the steps below: 1) Configure an ALD switch to ON state. By default, the ALD power supply switch is in OFF state. When using an electric antenna and tower mounted amplifier (TMA), you must configure the ALD power supply switch to ON state and configure an electricity alarm threshold. Add ALD-related equipment. If you need add electric antennas or TMAs to the NodeB, you must add ALD-related equipment by configuring NodeB data. The ALD-related equipment consists of electric antenna supporting AISG protocol (AISG_RET) and TMA supporting AISG protocol (AISG_TMA). You might not configure AISG_TAM to the electric antenna system, but you must configure AISG_RET. All rights reserved Page150 , Total220

4.8.2 Description of the Compatible Nastar Version


The Nastar V400R001C01B053 to the Nastar V400R001C01B055 support the analysis of a NodeB traffic measurement file in the .CSV format. The Nastar V400R001C01B056 and later versions supports the analysis of a NodeB traffic measurement file in .CSV and .XML formats. The following takes the Nastar V400R001C01B056 as an example to describe the import and analysis of NodeB traffic measurement data.

Data Import
You must import the configuration file of the RNC before importing NodeB traffic measurement data. Only a local cell ID and a NodeB name exist in the NodeB traffic measurement data; you must establish the association between the local cell and the cell ID through the configuration file. Import the configuration data, and then import the NodeB traffic measurement data as shown in Figure 2-17. The procedure is the same as that of importing RNC traffic measurement data. For details, refer to the Nastar Operation Guide.

8 Parameter Comparison
This section describes the parameter script acquisition and specific parameter comparison method in detail, and presents the concerns in network planning during parameter comparison. Parameter comparison involves two parts: RNC parameter comparison implemented by the Nastar R2 and NodeB parameter comparison implemented by the CME. For details on the NodeB parameter comparison implemented by the CME, refer to the documents related to the CME. The RNC parameter comparison implemented by the Nastar is still in the planning stage.

8.1 RNC parameter Acquisition


Briefly, the RNC parameter comparison is divided into three steps: 1) Take a certain RNC in the network as a reference RNC to compare the product baseline and analyze the differences between the existing network parameters and the product baseline. Take a cell from the reference RNC as a reference cell to compare it with other cells and ensure that all cell-level parameters in the reference RNC are consistent. Compare other RNCs with the reference RNC. The RNC parameters can be directly compared. The cell-level parameters should be compared with those of the reference cell in the reference RNC to ensure that the parameter configurations in the whole network are consistent.

2) 3)

8.1.1 Method of obtaining the baseline script


The RNC baseline script can be obtained from the data package of the RNC upgrade guide at http://support.huawei.com. Usually, the data package contains the file name of the baseline script. For example, the RNC baseline script is contained in the last page of 08-Appendix1-5 Description of the Modification to BSC6810 V200R009C01B061 Parameters and External MML Commands.doc. The figure below shows how to obtain a document containing the baseline script from the website http://support.huawei.com.

Page169 , Total220

WCDMA OMC Operation Guide Internal Open

Figure 8-1 Obtaining the RNC baseline script from the website http://support.huawei.com

The RNC version is taken an example to illustrate how to obtain the RNC baseline script from the website http://support.huawei.com. No product baseline is available for the versions earlier than V18071 on the website. A product baseline is released for related versions later than V18081 on the website. If a project requires the baseline script of a version earlier than V18071, contact the regional owner for assistance.

8.1.2 Method of Obtaining the RNC MML Script of the existing network
For details, refer to Generation and Export of a GFGMML File.

If an M2000 is configured in the network, you can obtain the MML scripts in batches through the M2000 in the following manner: The MML script in the recent period (this period varies with projects) exists on the M2000, usually in the /export/home/sysm/Nastar/RNCXXX/CFGMML directory. After logging in to the VPN, you can log in to the M2000 through the FTP Cute software and download the MML script. If the system automatically deletes the required MML script because its storage duration exceeds the time limit, you can telnet the BAM to obtain the script. Data is usually saved on the BAM for more than seven days (this period may be different, depending on the actual condition). The figure below shows the parameter comparison process.

8.2 NodeB parameter acquisition


In the version later than RAN6.0 (corresponding to V18), the scheduling function of the HSPA is set on the NodeB. The settings mainly involve Mac-hs and Mac-e parameters of the HSDPA. The NodeB parameters greatly affect the radio network performance. You must therefore, pay attention to these parameters during network planning. As the network scale becomes large, NodeB parameters also become more important. How to effectively compare NodeB parameters is a problem we face. The Nastar version implemented NodeB parameter comparison in August 2008. To this end, the network planning department developed a NodeB parameter comparison tool that implements the NodeB configuration parameter comparison function. This function is used to compare NodeB configuration parameter scripts.

8.2.1 Method of Obtaining The Baseline Script


1) Export the NodeB baseline XML script through the CME.

A new CME version is released together with a new NodeB version. The new CME version contains the default parameter configuration template of the NodeB. You can configure the 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page171 , Total220

WCDMA OMC Operation Guide Internal Open

corresponding parameters in the CME and select the corresponding NodeB parameter configuration template to export the NodeB baseline XML script. For details on the specific operations, see Appendix 13 Method of Obtaining the NodeB Baseline Through the CME.
2) Obtain the NodeB baseline script from the website http://support.huawei.com.

Since the version V18063, a NodeB parameter configuration baseline script is released together with a new NodeB version. You can obtain the NodeB baseline script from the website http://support.huawei.com. The baseline is presented in the Excel format. For example, a file named WCDMA NodeB Release Notes (DBS3800 V100R008C01B063). doc is obtained from the website, as shown in the figure below.

Figure 8-3 Obtaining a product baseline from the website at http://support.huawei.com

8.2.2 Acquisition of XML script of NodeBs on the existing network


You can obtain the parameter configuration scripts of the other Nodes in batches through the M2000 in the following manner: 1) Select multiple NodeBs on the M2000 and perform an NE data backup operation. After the backup is successful, you can view these files (stored in the M2000 server) in the backup file list. On the backup interface, select the required file list and click Download to Client. The local client can obtain the XML files of NodeBs in batches.

9 Appendix
9.1 CR Process for Modifying Parameters
RNP&O engineers must not randomly modify parameters related to the system in equipment room. In a commercial network, to implement suggestions on modifying parameters, you must follow related flow to avoid casualties in case of inconsiderate situations. Each project of WCDMA network must have management rules and process, so equipment OM operators and RNO engineers must follow them together with equipment room operators. Wherein, modifying RNP parameters must be approved by project managers. A suggested process for modifying parameters is as below: 1) 2) 3) RNO engineers propose a request for modifying parameters, and sent it to project managers for approval Project managers approve it, and then send CR to equipment room operators Equipment room operators back up scripts, modify parameters, execute related commands, record and update record list for modifying parameters. They check the result for executing commands, and feed back the result to RNO engineers and related engineers. If equipment room operators fail to execute some MML commands, the RNO engineers must analyze the result. If you modify parameters temporarily in a test project, you must restore the parameters after test. To determine the time for modifying parameters, you must pay attention to parameter importance, parameter level, and parameter impact on the system You must select the right time to avoid artificial accidents. You must modify the parameters at midnight, and otherwise modifying them will have great impact on the system. You might use customized script, detailed in 2.10 . Huawei forbids using customized scripts, so you must modify parameters during midnight.

9.4 Supplementation to Method for Starting DL Simulated Load


At early stage of network, there is no subscriber or few subscribers.This supplementation simulates actual network by simulating uplink and downlink load. The value of downlink load is relative to total power and the value of downlink load is relative to noise increment. A popular method for starting downlink load in the industry is starting simulated load by OCNS. For detailed methods, see 3.7 and 3.9 .

9.4.1 Starting Downlink Simulated Load


I. Introduction to OCNS The protocol 25.101 defines OCNS as follow: OCNS is the necessary power so that total transmit power spectral density of NodeB (lor) adds to one.

& Note: For dynamic power correction required to compensate for the presence of transient channels, e.g. control channels, a subset of the DPCH channels may be used.

Set up a fictitious load under NodeB so that the transmit power of the local cell reaches 100%. Namely, the total power of tested link and fake line is the downlink total power of the cell. If the traffic measurement of tested link is adjustable (the downlink power control is enabled), then the transmit power of other links must be adjusted so that the total power of all links is the total power of the cell. The following section provides the major parameters of 16 fake links when the power of tested link is fixed in the protocol. 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page183 , Total220

9.5 Description of Collecting Data for Tracing Calls


In RNO tests, engineers collect data for tracing calls on RNC LMT or M2000, including tracing signaling messages and monitoring realtime state. During calls, engineers collect downlink radio link performance data and signaling by using front DT software. Collecting data for tracing calls helps analyze coverage, capacity, traffic measurement indexes, radio performance of the network.

9.5.1 Tracing Signaling Messages


Signaling messages to be traced include the following messages:
l l l l

Subscriber signaling messages Cell signaling messages Signaling messages at standard interfaces Signaling messages in protocol of transport network layer

Before tracing signaling, you are recommended to adjust the BAM time and time on the test computer. I. Tracing Subscriber Signaling Messages Subscriber signaling messages include the following messages:
l l l

Single subscriber signaling messages at standard interface Single subscriber signaling messages at subscriber and signaling plane IOS messages Tracing single subscriber signaling messages at standard interfaces. The interfaces include lu, lur, lub, Uu interface. After typing the UE identity (IMSI, TMSI, All rights reserved Page184 , Total220

P-TMSI, or IMEI) and selecting the standard interface, you can trace the single subscriber signaling messages at standard interfaces. You can obtain UE IMSI by consulting the customer service center of the carrier or querying it from HLR. In addition, you can confirm IMSI by RANAP COMMON ID message. TMSI and P-TMSI change after TMSI relocation. If you need trace them, you can obtain them from RRC CONN REQUEST message. After UE reset and expiration of TMSI reconfiguration timer, TMSI or P-TMSI change. Therefore you must retrace them. You can obtain IMEI from UE vendor. You can trace emergency subscriber without SIM module by it. In case of RAB assignment failure, RAB release failure, paging failure, lu release failure, safety mode control failure, initial UE message failure, and transition failure, you can locate the obstacle and solve the problem by analyzing messages at lu interface. In case of radio link setup failure, radio link adding failure, radio link removal, common transmission channel resource release failure, downlink power control failure, and paging failure, you can locate the obstacle and solve the problem by analyzing messages at lub or lur interface. In case of RRC connection setup failure, RB setup failure, PCH reallocation failure, and cell update failure, you can locate the obstacle and solve the problem by analyzing messages at Uu interface. The lu interface messages (RANAP protocol messages) and lur interface messages (RANSAP protocol message) of the task UE tracing (standard interface messages) are connection-oriented messages, not non-connection messages. The lub interface messages (NBAP protocol message) of the task UE tracing (standard interface messages) are dedicated NBAP messages, but not common NBAP messages. If you trace single subscriber by using IMSI, and the RRC CONNECT REQUEST message includes the consistent IMSI when UE is accessing the network, you can trace the single subscriber by tracing messages after RRC CONN REQUEST message. If you trace single subscriber by using IMSI, the RANAP COMMON ID message, but not RRC CONNECT REQUEST, include the IMSI when UE is accessing the network, you can trace the single subscriber by tracing messages after RANAP COMMON ID message. The messages before RANAP COMMON ID message are dropped. The index USER on the traced result displayed in the UE Tracing (Standard Interface Messages) task view window means differently to different interfaces. For lu and lur interface messages, USER is DPC ID. For lub interface messages, USER is NodeB ID. For Uu interface messages, USER is invalid (oxFFFFFFFF). On the message view window, right click. In the displayed menu, you can select Board Response List, and can view all WSPU information of unreceived response messages and received response messages. 2) Tracing single subscriber signaling messages at subscriber and signaling plane The messages are at signaling and user plane at standard interfaces related to specific tracing event during calling by specified UE. You can type the UE identity (IMSI, TMSI, P-TMSI, or IMEI) and select the specific events. Tracing this type of messages has something in common with the task UE tracing (standard interface messages): the messages to be traced are related and triggered in tracing specified UE in calling. Yet they are different. The task UE tracing (standard interface messages) involves signaling messages at four standard interfaces. The task UE tracing (subscriber and signaling plane) involves standard messages at signaling plane, self-defined information at signaling plane, and reported data at user plane. It divides the traced messages according to report information content. Namely, you can select different traced messages by selecting different events. The task UE tracing (subscriber and signaling plane) involves much information, which impacts system operation. Therefore, reduce the traced events as possible. The RNC can trace 6 UEs at most. If the task UE tracing (standard interface messages) can meet the requirements, use this task as possible.

IOS tracing. IOS tracing is tracing all subscribers meeting default conditions. By IOS tracing, you continuously traced the calls of specified number (the number is specified at beginning of the task) which access the network in specified cell. The content to be traced is the messages generated during calling. Select the types of traced messages by selecting traced events. Only the subscribers access the cell by RRC or migrate (including inter-system handover) to the cell. Stopping tracing is triggered when RRC is released or the subscribers migrate out of the cell. Type the number of continuous calls to be traced, sampling standard, and tracing time. The sampling standard is defined according to RAB parameter restriction. The RAB parameter restriction is valid only when tracing a new call starts. If a call meets the sampling standard, the call keeps being traced despite that the RAB parameters are modified after starting the call. If the RAB parameters does not meet sampling standard at the beginning but meet sampling standard after modification, the call will not be traced. The task IOS tracing involves much information, which impacts system operation. The index of the upper limit of number of calls traced simultaneously must be smaller than 6. Tracing all events at a time is not recommended. In addition, use the task as less frequently as possible.

II. Tracing Cell Signaling Messages Tracing cell signaling messages is tracing NBAP common messages or USER_VOLUMN events in specified cells. The USER_VOLUMN events include self-defined messages, reflecting statistics information of UE in the cell. Specify the cell by typing cell ID. Select the type of messages to be traced by selecting traced events. The cells to be traced must be activated first. The task cell tracing involves much information, which impacts system operation. The system supports tracing 32 cells at most simultaneously. If lub interface tracing meets requirements, use it as possible. III. Tracing Signaling Messages at Standard Interfaces The interfaces include Uu, lub, lur, and lu interface. When the subscribers are in a large number, the signaling to be traced at standard interfaces is much. This impacts system operation. Solve the problem by using testability log and tracing single subscriber. 1) Tracing Uu interface messages. This traces all or partial signaling messages at Uu interface in the selected cell. The USER displayed in the traced result on the message view window is the cell that tr ansmits or receives the message. Tracing lub interface messages. This traces standard messages at lub interface, including NBAP dedicated messages and common messages. The USER displayed in the traced result on the task message view window is the opposite NodeB ID. The NodeB ID is queried by executing LST NODEB command. The NCP and CCP port number are queried by executing LST IUBP command. Tracing lur interface messages. This traces standard messages at lur interface, including connection-oriented and non-connection messages. The USER in the traced result displayed task message view window is the DPC ID of opposite RNC. Query DPC ID by executing LST N7DPC command. Tracing lu interface messages This traces standard messages at lu interface, including connection-oriented and non-connection messages. The USER in the traced result displayed task message All rights reserved Page186 , Total220

view window is the DPC ID of opposite CN. Query DPC ID by executing LST N7DPC command. IV. Signaling Messages in Protocol of Transport Network Layer The messages include QAAL2, SCCP, MTP3B, and SAAL protocol messages. Tracing these messages helps analyze failure at interface link. In case of RAB assignment failure, RRC setup failure, and cell setup failure, you can locate the obstacle and solve the problem by tracing QAAL2 protocol messages. When the CN side cannot receive direct transmission messages and the RNC cannot receive paging messages sent by CN:
l l l

If the target signaling point is reachable, you can locate the obstacle and solve the problem by tracing SCCP protocol messages. If the target signaling point is unreachable or MTP3B link is unavailable, you can locate the obstacle and solve the problem by tracing MTP3B protocol messages. If the SAAL link is unavailable, you can locate the obstacle and solve the problem by tracing SAAL protocol messages.

9.5.2 Monitoring Realtime State


Monitoring realtime state involves the following indexes:
l l l l

CPU utilization Connection performance Cell performance Link performance

Monitor the states of current system equipment and service operation by using figures and data. During monitoring, analyze the abnormalities to help maintain the equipment and solve problems. The following sections describe monitoring connection performance and monitoring cell performance. I. Monitoring Connection Performance By monitoring connection performance, you can obtain the connection state of physical link during calling. A connection performance monitoring task monitors one or more indexes of one or more UEs. Usually monitoring connection of one UE simultaneously is recommended based on consideration of system cost. Over high utilization of the system triggers flow control. Upon flow control, the system stops interior tasks and forbidding starting interior tasks again. 1) Cell SIR and RSCP By monitoring it, you can obtain the DCH connection and realtime data of active set cells of the current connection without reporting data of other cells. Therefore the monitored result reflects the variation of active sets. The upper limit that you can report is 6. If the monitored connection is released or migrates from DCH to CCH, the task stops. If the monitored connection returns from CCH to DCH, the task restarts. The monitored data is reported at Uu interface periodically. AMR mode In AMR mode, you can obtain variation of configured rate of subscribers with AMR service. Measured SIR of uplink radio link set By monitoring it, you can obtain the DCH connection and realtime state of SIR quality of radio link, so the monitored result reflects the variation of radio link active sets. If the monitored connection is released or migrates from DCH to CCH, All rights reserved Page187 , Total220

the task stops. If the monitored connection returns from CCH to DCH, the task restarts. The monitored data is submitted in a NodeB-specific measurement report periodically. 4) SIR target value of uplink radio link set By monitoring it, you can obtain realtime state of SIR quality target value required by radio link set connected on DCH. It reflects requirements on uplink radio link quality and variation of requirements. The monitored data is reported inside RNC periodically. Measured SIR error of uplink radio link set By monitoring it, you can obtain realtime state of measured SIR error of radio link set connected on DCH. In addition, you can observe whether the radio link set SIR matches the variation of SIR target value and can evaluate function of uplink inner loop power control. If the measured SIR error of uplink radio link set change s all the time but remains convergent to 0 dB, the uplink inner loop power control is convergent. Otherwise, the uplink inner loop power control is divergent. The monitored data is reported inside RNC periodically. Uplink transport channel BLER By monitoring it, you can monitor the BLER variation of the signaling transport channel and major service transport channels connected to DCH. It helps analyze uplink radio link quality. If the uplink transport channel BLER increases, the uplink radio link quality declines. Otherwise, the uplink radio link quality increases. If the uplink radio link BLER keeps great, especially with an over great BLER of signaling transport channel, the uplink link quality is over poor. This might cause uplink asynchronization which consequently causes release of entire connection. The monitored data is submitted in a NodeB-specific measurement period report. Downlink code transmit power By monitoring it, you can obtain the variation of code transmit power of each downlink radio link connected on DCH. It reflects the number variation of radio links involved in the current connection. In addition, it helps analyze downlink power consumption. If the measured downlink code transmit power increases, even approaching the maximum downlink code transmit power configured in signaling messages, the downlink radio link quality declines. The monitored data is submitted in NodeB-specific measurement period report. UE transmit power By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime variation of uplink UE transmit power on DCH. It helps analyze uplink radio link quality. If the UE transmit power keeps increasing, even approaching the upper limit to UE capacity, the uplink radio link quality declines. The monitored data is reported at Uu interface periodically. Uplink PCH BER By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime variation of uplink physical channel (PCH) BER connected DCH. It helps analyze uplink radio link quality. If the uplink PCH BER increases, the uplink radio link quality declines. Otherwise the uplink radio link quality increases. If the uplink PCH BER keeps high, the uplink quality is poor. This causes uplink asynchronization, which consequently causes release of entire connection. The monitored data is reported inside RNC periodically.

10) Uplink traffic By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime variation of uplink traffic (cache data amount at UE side) of PS interactive or background services. It helps analyze tra nsmission performance of uplink traffic. If the uplink traffic keeps approximately e 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page188 , Total220

qual to cache capacity at UE side, the uplink transmission bandwidth is inadequat e. The monitored data is reported at Uu interface periodically. 11) Downlink traffic By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime variation of downlink traffic (cache d ata amount at UE side) of PS interactive or background services. It helps analyze transmission performance of downlink traffic. If the downlink traffic keeps approxi mately equal to cache capacity at UE side, the downlink transmission bandwidth i s inadequate. The monitored data is reported inside RNC periodically. 12) Uplink throughput and bandwidth By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime rate variation of uplink data access l ayer and non-access layer of PS interactive and background services. It helps an alyze dynamic channel configuration function and rate variation feature of service sou rce. T h e m oni t or ed dat a i s re po rt e d i n si de R NC peri o di cal l y. While verifying functions of dynamic channel configuration, observe the variation of uplink throughput and bandwidth. If the uplink throughput increases, the uplink bandwidth increases accordingly. If the uplink throughput decreases to 0, the upli nk bandwidth decreases to the minimum rate accordingly, the dynamic channel fu nctions normally. If the dynamic channel configuration function is disabled, obtain the rate feature of uplink service source by observing variation of uplink throughp ut. 13) Downlink throughput and bandwidth By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime rate variation of downlink data acces s layer and non-access layer of PS interactive and background services. It helps analyze dynamic channel configuration function and rate variation feature of servi ce source. The monitored data is reported inside RNC periodically. While verifying functions of dynamic channel configuration, observe the variation of downlink throughput and bandwidth. If the downlink throughput increases, the downlink bandwidth increases accordingly. If the downlink throughput decreases t o 0, the downlink bandwidth decreases to the minimum rate accordingly, the dyna mic channel functions normally. If the dynamic channel configuration function is di sabled, obtain the rate feature of downlink service source by observing variation of downlink throughput. 14) Handover delay By monitoring it, you can monitor the connection on DCH and the period of every handover (intra-RNC, inter-RNC soft handover, intra-frequency hard handover, an d i nt er-f requency hard han dov er) of t he current conn ect i on. For example, the point for UE to report 1A event of joining radio links T1. The poi nt for UE to send the ACTIVE SET UPDATE COMPLETE message is T2. The dif ference between T2 and T1 is the soft handover delay to be added in radio links. The monitoring period is unnecessary upon starting the task. 15) Downlink transport channel BLER By monitoring it, you can obtain the BLER variation of all transport channels conn ected to DCH. It reflects the realtime variation of number of service transport cha nnels. In addition, it helps analyze downlink radio link quality. If the downlink trans port channel BLER increases, the downlink radio link quality declines. Otherwise, the downlink radio link quality increases. The monitored data is submitted in UU-s pecific measurement period report. II. Monitoring Cell Performance By monitoring cell performance, you can obtain the cell performance conditions (such as common measured values and CCH subscribers). Monitoring cell performance 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page189 , Total220

increases the data flow between the host device and BAM. Monitoring excessive cells is not recommended and monitoring period must not be over small. Otherwise the system performance is affected. Activate the cells before monitoring. Query activated cells by executing the DSP CELL command. Query parameters of monitored cells by executing the LST CELL command. Over high system utilization triggers flow control, and then the system stops inferior tasks and prohibits starting inferior tasks. 1) Transmit power of cell PIPICH pilot By monitoring it, you can observe and judge whether the pilot power of a specifie d cell is normal. Query the automatic adjustment range of cell PCPICH pilot powe r by executing LST PCPICH and cell PCPICH. Received power of cell uplink total bandwidth By monitoring it, you can the uplink load level of a specified cell. The NodeB mea sures and reports the uplink total bandwidth received power. You can perform co mmon measurement on cells to be monitored. Before activation of cell, equipmen t room operators query by executing the LST CELLALGOSWITCH command an d ensure the LDM (load monitoring algorithm) of cell algorithm switch is enabled (modifying the switch by executing the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH command). Aft er activation of cell, the system constructs the common measurement process, wi th the COMMON MEASUREMENT REPORTING message at lu interface. The uplink load factor (the ratio of uplink total bandwidth received power of cell to cell background noise) measures the cell uplink load in admission process. The c ell background noise is a constant (setting it by executing the ADD CELLCAC or MOD CELLCAC command), so the uplink total bandwidth received power of cell decides relative level of cell uplink load. Transport power of cell downlink carrier By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime level of cell downlink load. The Node B measures and reports transmit power of cell downlink carrier. You can perform common measurement on the cells to be monitored. Before activation of cell, equ ipment room operators query by executing the LST CELLALGOSWITCH comma nd and ensure the LDM (load monitoring algorithm) of cell algorithm switch is ena bled (modifying the switch by executing the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH comman d). After activation of cell, the system constructs the common measurement proce ss, with the COMMON MEASUREMENT REPORTING message at lu interface. The ratio of downlink carrier transmit power to maximum transmit power of cell m easures cell downlink load in admission process. Set the maximum transmit powe r of cell by executing the ADD CELLSETUP command upon cell setup. After cell setup, modify the maximum transmit power of cell by executing the MOD CELLS ETUP command.

When HSDPA is used, NodeB can monitor cell carrier power and non-HSDPA carrier power at the same time. To do so, you need to enable cell measurement on CELLALG OSWITCH by using the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH: NBMSwitch=HSDPA_MEAS-1 co mmand. 4) Number of cell CCH subscribers By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime number of CCH subscribers in the c ell. Number of cell DCH subscribers By monitoring it, you can obtain the realtime number of DCH subscribers in the c ell. Node synchronization By monitoring it, you can obtain the time difference between RNC frame number All rights reserved Page190 , Total220

(RFN) and NodeB Frame Number (BFN), as well as the time for completing node synchronization. If the difference changes sharply, the transmission between RNC and NodeB is problematic. 7) Uplink admission judgment By monitoring it, you can obtain the predicted value of uplink load factor in admis sion judgment and the variation of measured load factor. Therefore, you can mea sure the accuracy of uplink admission load. You can perform common measurem ent on the cells to be monitored. Before activation of cell, equipment room operat ors query by executing the LST CELLALGOSWITCH command and ensure the LDM (load monitoring algorithm) of cell algorithm switch is enabled (modifying the switch by executing the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH command). After activation o f cell, the system constructs the common measurement process, with the COMM ON MEASUREMENT REPORTING m essage at l u i nterf ace. Monitoring uplink admission judgment is effective only when the uplink admission control algorithm switch is set to load prediction algorithm. Configure the switch by executing the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH command. Query the switch state b y executing the LST CELLALGOSWITCH command. The uplink load factor (the ratio of uplink total bandwidth received power of cell to cell background noise) measures the cell uplink load in admission process. Confi gure cell background noise by the ADD CELLCAC or MOD CELLCAC command. Downlink admission judgment monitoring By monitoring it, you can obtain the predicted value of downlink load factor in ad mission judgment and the variation of measured load factor. Therefore, you can measure the accuracy of downlink admission load. You can perform common me asurement on the cells to be monitored. Before activation of cell, equipment room operators query by executing the LST CELLALGOSWITCH command and ensur e the LDM (load monitoring algorithm) of cell algorithm switch is enabled (modifyi ng the switch by executing the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH command). After activ ation of cell, the system constructs the common measurement process, with the CO MMO N MEASUREMENT REPO RT I NG message at l u i nt erf ace. Monitoring downlink admission judgment is effective only when the downlink admi ssion control algorithm switch is set to load prediction algorithm. Configure the switch by executing the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH command. Query the switch state by ex ecuti ng the LST CELLALGOSWIT CH comm and. The ratio of downlink carrier transmit power to maximum transmit power of cell m easures the cell downlink load in admission control process. The maximum trans mit power of cell is a constant (setting it by executing the ADD CELLSETUP com mand upon cell setup), so the downlink carrier transmit power of cell decides relat ive level of cell downlink load. Uplink equivalent subscribers By monitoring normalized factor of uplink total services in the specified cell, you c an obtain the variation of uplink equivalent subscribers based on cell subscribers (cell CCH subscribers and cell DCH subscribers). Monitoring uplink equivalent su bscribers is effective only when the uplink admission control algorithm switch is s et to total service normalized factor algorithm (configuring it by executing the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH command and querying it by executing the LST CEL LALGOSWITCH command). During the admission control process using total ser vice normalized factor algorithm, select a service and a rate (12.2k AMR voice ser vice) as a standard service. The normalized factor for a service is the ratio of the system capacity used by the service to that of the standard service. The normaliz ed f actors are different for uplink and downlink of the same service. The normalized factor of cell uplink total service is the sum of all normalized facto All rights reserved Page191 , Total220

It reflects the uplink load level of cell and increases as the cell subscriber increase. 10) Downlink equivalent subscribers By monitoring normalized factor of downlink total services in the specified cell, yo u can obtain the variation of downlink equivalent subscribers based on cell subscr ibers (cell CCH subscribers and cell DCH subscribers). Monitoring downlink equi valent subscribers is effective only when the downlink admission control algorithm switch is set to total service normalized factor algorithm (configuring it by exe cuting the MOD CELLALGOSWITCH command and querying it by executing the LST CELLALGOSWITCH command). During the admission control process usin g total service normalized factor algorithm, select a service and a rate (12.2k AMR voice service) as a standard service. The normalized factor for a service is the ra tio of the system capacity used by the service to that of the standard service. The normalized factors are different for downlink and downlink of the same service. The normalized factor of cell downlink total service is the sum of all normalized fa ctors of each service. It reflects the downlink load level of cell and increases as th e cell subscriber increase. 11) Cell code tree usage By monitoring downlink channel orthogonal variable spreading factor (OVSF) cod e tree, you can obtain the realtime usage of cell downlink channel code. When th e mouse pointer stops on a code table, the system prompts the spreading factor of the code, code number, and state. 12) Minimum power requirements on HS-DSCH channel To minimize the bit rate for HSDPA subscribers, you can reserve part of the powe r for HS-DSCH. You can perform real-time monitoring using this item. 13) Bit rate provided by HS-DSCH This performance varies with subscriber bit rates in real time.

9.5.3 Tracing CDT


CDT tracing is similar to CDL tracing. It combines signaling tracing with L2 user plane information. To trace CDT, perform the following steps: Select Service > Trace Management > Interface Trace Task, and then enter the IMSI number of the UE. Because there is a lot to be traced, you should trace fewer than two subscribers on th e same computer. The file is saved at C:\HWLMT\BSC6800V100R005ENG\BSC6800 V100R005ENGC01B068\Trace by default.

9.6 Description of the Configuration File for the Nastar R2 Parameter Comparison Tool
9.6.1 Script configuration for RNC MML parameter comparison
Parameter configuration is the key to the MML script comparison function. The parameter configuration, parameters to be compared, and parameter display are an integrity. The parameters that the Nastar compares must be preset in the parameter configuration template. The Nastar does not compare those parameters that are not preset. Only the parameters with different comparison results are displayed. The configuration file directory (add instance description) is WCDMA\TEMPLATE FILES\WCDMA\ConfigurationCommand. There are three XML script files in the 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page195 , Total220

WCDMA OMC Operation Guide Internal Open

directory: cmdtype.xml, cmpcmd.xml, and EspecialCommand.xml. The three files are described as follows:

cmdtype.xml
The cmdtype.xml file is used for parameter classification. The parameter format is shown in the figure below.

Figure 9-4 Format of classified command parameters You can obtain the required parameter by performing configurations shown in the preceding figure. For example, RNC parameters are divided into air interface parameters and parameters oriented to the transport layer of NodeB. The parameter configuration in the file is used by the R&D personnel for program implementation. Therefore, the network planning personnel do not need to pay special attention.

cmpcmd.xml
The cmpcmd.xml file is used for parameter matching. Different commands match different parameters. Therefore, relevant matching parameters must be configured for comparison. Otherwise, the comparison results cannot meet the customer's requirement. The network planning personnel must pay attention to this part of the parameter configuration. The figure below shows the parameter matching format.

Command Type distinguishes RNC-level parameters from cell-level parameters. Traffic Type indicates the parameter category. The value is consistent with the classification configuration in the cmdtype.xml file. Name indicates a command. Cfgindex Param indicates the name of a specific parameter. Value is a reserved item and is used for index display. If Value is set to 1, the index is displayed; if Value is set to 0, the index is not displayed. Match indicates whether a baseline parameter is compared.

The EspecialCommand.xml file is used for the configuration of special command parameters, for example, switch parameters to be analyzed. The figure below shows the parameter format.

Network planning concerns


1) Configuration of neglected items

The indexes of certain RNC-level and cell-level parameters need to be neglected because parameters such as RABINDEX and CELLID are not what network planning personnel are concerned about. There is no point in comparing these parameters. The negligence of these parameters is implemented through parameter configuration. 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page197 , Total220

WCDMA OMC Operation Guide Internal Open

Configuration method: If you want to neglect the CELLID parameter, the configuration command is as follows: <Cfgindex Param="CELLID" Value="0" Match="0"/> The item to be neglected is configured in the cmpcmd.xml file. Here, the value 0 of Match indicates that the parameter is not compared; the value 0 of Value indicates that the parameter is not displayed. CELLID is the neglected parameter and is not processed.
2) Contradiction between parameter matching and parameter mismatching

When the parameters of different RNCs are compared, certain RNC-level parameters (including some cell-level parameters) such as RNCID and CELLID do not need to be compared. When the parameters of one RNC before and after an upgrade are compared, the parameters should completely match. Thus, a contradiction between parameter matching and parameter mismatching occurs. Currently, one parameter configuration script cannot satisfy the requirements of two types of parameter comparison. The current solution is to add another parameter configuration script in the next version so that the requirements of the two types of parameter comparison can be satisfied.
3) Problem about the comprehensiveness of parameters

As the transport layer parameters cannot be compared, the problem about the comprehensiveness of parameters arises. The existence of parameter configuration items for Nastar's parameter configuration gives us such a hint: When configuring parameters, we can add or delete some parameters to meet different requirements. Before the parameter comparison module is widely applied, the parameter configuration must be reviewed and a reference parameter configuration script is required. Some parameters cannot be compared. This results in a contradiction between parameter display and parameter comparison comprehensiveness. Therefore, parameter configuration is more crucial.

At present, there is no accurate method for comparing the transport layer parameters. Therefore, these parameters are directly neglected. In addition, some parameters are not configured because they are insignificant. Therefore, you should distinguish the problem about the comprehensiveness of parameter comparison all by yourself. 4) Problem about parameters not configured

The MML script parameter comparison module compares only the parameters configured in the parameter configuration script. In this case, the parameter commands are different between different versions of one RNC or between two MML scripts compared with the baseline. As the new parameters are not configured in the parameter configuration script, they cannot be compared and displayed. Therefore, it is recommended that the function of querying the parameter change be added. This function involves two steps. First, the parameter change between the two MML scripts for parameter comparison is queried. Then, these new parameters are searched in the parameter configuration scripts to check whether they are configured; if they are not configured, they are listed in an Excel file, prompting for configuration.

It is confirmed that the parameters that have been compared and that have not been compared are listed. You can configure the parameters that are not configured in the parameter configuration script according to requirements. The program is unable to distinguish new parameters from those that are not configured (for example, transport layer parameters). This function is implemented in the version released on January 2008. 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page198 , Total220

9.9 Script configuration used for NodeB XML parameter comparison


The configuration file used for NodeB parameter comparison is a parameter mapping table. Similar to the RNC, a NodeB also is equipped with an LMT on which you can set relevant parameters of the NodeB. These parameters are common but may be inconsistent with those in the NodeB parameter configuration script. There is a corresponding relation between the parameters on the LMT of the NodeB and those in the parameter configuration script. The RAN maintenance department implements maintenance of a NodeB through the parameter configuration script. It is confirmed that a correspondence exists between the parameters on the LMT and those in the parameter configuration script. The table below lists the parameter mapping.

As we are concerned only with the radio parameters in the corresponding NodeB version during network planning, the negotiation planning data and the RNC-level parameters are not configured. After the parameters of a cell are configured, the parameter configuration script of the NodeB is exported. The parameter configuration script is only the NodeB baseline script that should be given importance in network planning. The radio layer parameters configured on the NodeB are the parameters in the default NodeB version. Therefore, the NodeB version here must be the one that the customer requires. After the parameter configuration, the corresponding parameters of the selected NodeB version are stored in the exported XML script.

The XML script we eventually see is the NodeB reference parameter configuration script that we concern.

9.14 Concerns of RNC parameter comparison for network planning


9.14.1 Comparison with the baseline parameters

Selection of the Reference Cell ID


Since the reference cell ID in the product baseline is 0, the cell ID for baseline comparison can be only 0. However, if the reference MML script is not the product baseline MML script, after the existing network MML script is imported, the Base cell ID (reference cell ID) is an optional Cell ID in the MML script and the cell to which a Cell ID corresponds can be selected as the reference cell.

Parameter Change Record


A product baseline is always provided when a product is upgraded. The parameters in the baseline script are set to the default values. There are no recommended values for these parameters, and they must be configured according to the actual network condition. For easy network parameter management and version upgrade, a parameter change record is provided to serve as a monitoring point. The parameter change resulting from each version upgrade is recorded, with the reasons for the change.

It is confirmed that the reasons for the parameter differences in the parameter change record are as follows:
1) The customer's network parameters are reused. 2) Parameters are modified for the purpose of KPI acceptance. 3) Parameters are modified on site. 4) The version upgrade causes parameter change but parameters are not modified on site. 5) The precaution items are released at the website http://support.huawei.com.

The parameters that are changed in the parameter template should be confirmed one by one on site. Reasons for the parameter difference should be given in the parameter change record so that subsequent problems can be traced and referenced.

Parameter Script Configuration


Currently, the parameter comparison module of the Nastar only compares the parameters configured in the script, instead of those not configured. Therefore, the parameters not configured in the script are not displayed in a report. The parameters in the parameter configuration script must be preset.

Problem About Hierarchical Networking


Generally, only one reference cell is configured in the baseline script and the ID of the reference cell is 0. In the case of hierarchical networking, R99 cells and H cells need to be distinguished. The configuration of a single cell in the baseline is unable to satisfy the actual requirements. Network planning personnel needs to configure another reference cell in the baseline to distinguish between different types of cells. The next section describes the division of cluster in the case of hierarchical networking.

Customized Sheet Entries


Currently, the baseline parameter comparison function displays only two sheet entries, namely, RNC-level parameter comparison results and cell-level parameter comparison results. In the parameter configuration script, different parameters are classified and some parameters are of the same type but are RNC-level parameters and cell-level parameters, respectively. Currently, the two parameter-display sheet entries cannot meet this requirement. To solve this problem, the sheet-entry customization function is adopted. The function allows the customer to customize a sheet entry name and display the comparison results of the required parameters. It is confirmed that this function is implemented in the version released in January 2008.

Inconsistency of the Imported MML Script


In the case of hierarchical networking, you need to configure different clusters. Before configuring clusters, you must first import the MML script into the project, and then utilize the NE Group in the Nastar to set the cluster. After the MML script is imported, parameters are compared and another MML script is imported. The case happens that the two MML scripts are different. If the data imported for the second time is different from the data imported for the first time, the comparison results may be different. As a result, the inconsistency between the cluster and the information in the MML script to be compared causes parameter comparison errors. Network planning personnel must ensure that the clusters set in the Nastar are consistent with the information in the MML script to be compared.

9.14.2 Parameter comparison between different cells in one MML script

Problem about Hierarchical Networking


Different networks have different networking modes, which gives rise to the problem of hierarchical networking. Such is the case with the network of the project in Singapore. R99 cells utilize one frequency and H cells utilize another frequency. The hierarchical networking problem affects the cell-level parameter comparison. At the time of cell-level parameter comparison, the cell cluster to which the reference cell belongs should be considered. R99 cells and H cells in the network in Singapore follow certain naming rules. Cells whose IDs end with 0, 8, or 9 are R99 cells while cells whose IDs end with 5, 6, or 7 are H cells. The naming rules for Cell ID are different in different offices. The division of clusters depends on the actual division rules. The figure below shows the parameter configuration.

Cluster-To-Cell indicates the cell group to be selected. The name of this option is blurred. The R&D department is already recommended to change the name to Group Cell Select. As shown in the preceding figure, different cells belong to different cell groups. Select a cell from a different cell group to serve as a reference cell. You can set a cell group through the NE Group option or by importing the cell group into an Excel file.

Figure 9-34 NE Group for cell group setting

The method of setting the cell group through the NE Group option is the same as that of configuring a swapped cell group. A cell group is set on the WCDMA (the Nastar consists of two parts: WCDMA and Transdata). You should use Transdata to import the MML script of the cell group to be configured to the Nastar project in advance. Otherwise, the cell group cannot be configured.

Import the cell group into an Excel file.

The table below shows the Excel data format.

The Excel data format must strictly follow the data format shown in the preceding table. The cells in the configured cell group must correspond to the MML script that is imported in the Nastar project in advance. That is, the imported cell must exist in the Nastar database. Otherwise, the cell group cannot be set. In this sense, the two methods of configuring a cell group are consistent.

Change of Cell-Level Parameters


Certain cell parameters, for example, some parameters in the ADD CELLSETUP command, should be different. The NodeB name and LOCELL vary with cells (see the figure below). The parameter differences must be distinguished or the parameters should be screened at the time of script configuration. For details on the parameter configuration of script comparison, see the section "Parameter Configuration". Table 9-4 Example of cell parameters
ADD CELLSETUP ADD CELLSETUP LOCELL NODEBNAME 7 "1230_PCOSTAA_D" 5 "1029_PCLRKQY_D"

The implementation of such parameters can be avoided through parameter configuration.

Reference Cell Selection and Maintenance


Here a cell in the existing network is selected to serve as a reference cell. Other cells are compared with the reference cell. The parameters of the reference cell should be as complete as possible because the setting of RNC-level parameters involves the setting of cell-level parameters and parameters are reserved for RNC-level parameter comparison and cell-level parameter comparison. In the case of hierarchical networking, the reference cell in each cell group must be maintained.

9.14.3 Parameter comparison between different RNCs

RNC-Level Parameter Comparison


Transport layer parameters are RNC-level parameters. The configuration of the transport layer parameters is very flexible. The indexes of the transport layer parameters of different RNCs are different. The transport layer parameters cannot be compared and the comparison results cannot satisfy the requirement. The transport layer parameter comparison will be implemented in later versions. The specific implementation time is to be determined.

Change of RNC-Level Parameters


RNC-level parameter change occurs between different RNCs. This attribute is, however, specific to each RNC. For example, the parameter RNCID is not what we 2007-12-13 All rights reserved Page218 , Total220

concern. Here, you should determine the parameter change by yourself or avoid parameter change in the configuration file for parameter comparison.

Problem about Hierarchical Networking


The problem about hierarchical networking also exists in cell-level parameter comparison. For details about the specific method, see the section "Parameter Comparison Between Different Cells in One MML Script".

Problem about Different RNC Versions


The RNC versions to be compared between two MML scripts should be consistent. If the versions are inconsistent, the configurations of many parameters are different, and may cause problems in parameter addition or deletion. This function can be applied only when the RNC versions are the same.

Parameter Comparison Between Different Versions of an RNC


For the parameter comparison between different versions of an RNC, parameters can generally be matched completely. However, certain parameters cannot be matched, for example, when the transmission bandwidth is changed. If new parameters cannot be matched, they are displayed in the comparison results, with a value displayed for a configured parameter but no value for a parameter that is not matched. You should pay attention to the parameters that cannot be matched completely.
