About This Document

BSC6900 GSM Commissioning Guide

The BSC6900 commissioning can be performed remotely or locally. Remote commissioning is performed by the remote engineer (technical owner of the BSC). In this mode, multiple BSCs can be commissioned simultaneously in the central equipment room. Local commissioning is performed by the site engineer (commissioning owner in the BSC equipment room). In this mode, the site engineer connects a PC to the BSC and performs the commissioning through the LMT. There is also another commissioning mode: remote commissioning based on local cooperation. In this mode, the commissioning is performed by both the remote engineer and the site engineer. 4 Checking the Operating Status of the Hardware Before verifying the equipment, ensure that the cabinet is powered on and operates normally. 5 Verifying the OMU This describes how to verify the OMU to enable the normal communication between the LMT and the BSC6900. The OMU verification involves installing the OMU operating system and OMU application, checking the OMU operation status, and changing the external fixed IP address and external virtual IP address of the OMU on site. 6 Logging In to the BSC6900 Through the LMT This chapter describes how to log in to the BSC6900 through the LMT and enable the normal communication. LMT verification ensures the BSC6900 commissioning through the LMT. 7 Updating the OMU Database This describes how to update configuration data in the OMU database by running MML commands. 8 Activating and Verifying the License This chapter describes how to activate the license and verify the license configuration information to enable service checking. 9 Loading BSC6900 Board Software and Data Files This chapter describes how to load the BSC6900 board software and data files to enable the normal operation of the BSC6900. 10 Connecting the BSC6900 to the M2000 This chapter describes how to connect the BSC6900 to the M2000 for the centralized management. 11 Verifying Interfaces This section describes how to verify interfaces. The interfaces to be verified are Abis, A, Gb, Ater, and Pb interfaces. The Ater interface verification is mandatory in BM/TC separated mode; the Pb interface verification is mandatory when the external PCU is used on the BSC6900. 12 Handling the Alarms Generated During the Commissioning This chapter describes how to handle the alarms generated during the commissioning, thus preventing the alarms from affecting the verification of services. 13 Verifying the GSM Services This chapter describes how to verify that the GSM basic services and the feature services that are enabled are normal. The basic services consist of speech service and data service. The feature services consist of the inter-RAT handover, location service, and AMR service.

Commissioning Process

The BSC6900 commissioning can be performed remotely or locally. Remote commissioning is performed by the remote engineer (technical owner of the BSC). In this mode, multiple BSCs can be commissioned simultaneously in the central equipment room. Local commissioning is performed by the site engineer (commissioning owner in the BSC equipment room). In this mode, the site engineer connects a PC to the BSC and performs the commissioning through the LMT. There is also another commissioning mode: remote commissioning based on local cooperation. In this mode, the commissioning is performed by both the remote engineer and the site engineer. Figure 3-1 shows the commissioning process.
