The alarm is issued when no ATM cells are received in the ete ATM
(end to end ATM) cell flow of the Virtual Circuit (VC) for 2.5 0.5 s.

remote

An alarm is issued when the Message Transfer Part level 3 (MTP3)


detects a faulty MTP3b signalling link. The fault can be permanent or
temporary. The possible causes are as follows:
a transmission fault
a process or processor restart in this node
a faulty ET board
a fault in the adjacent signalling node

remote and/or field

event, not a fault


The alarm is issued if the Ethernet switch port is becoming
overloaded. The load is 80% or more of the maximum allowed load.
The alarm remains as long as the port is overloaded and ceases
automatically when the load decreases. If the Ethernet switch port
becomes more overloaded, this alarm is replaced by the alarm,
Ethernet Switch Port Overload. Causes:
Maintenance of Ethernet switches.
Fault in the network.
Under-dimensioning
Faulty link(s) in the node.
This alarm appears when the Radio Base Station (RBS) fails to report
carrier power and uplink interference measurements to the Radio
Network Controller (RNC). Causes:
RBS resources are unavailable.
An RBS hardware failure prevents it from performing the
measurement

The alarm is issued if the Ethernet switch port is overloaded. The load
is 100% or more of the maximum allowed load. The alarm remains as
long as the port is overloaded and ceases automatically when the load
decreases. If the Ethernet switch port load decreases, this alarm is
replaced by the alarm, Ethernet Switch Port Congestion.

remote and/or field

An alarm is issued when the Message Transfer Part level 3 (MTP3) detects a
faulty M3UA Association. The fault can be permanent or temporary.
The possible causes are as follows:

remote

a transmission fault
a process or processor restart in this node
a faulty General Purpose processor Board (GPB)
a fault in the adjacent signalling node
The alarm is issued when a specified number of the consecutive bad
seconds has been detected. A second is defined as "bad" if the
detected percentage of the block errors is equal to, or greater than,
the specified percentage. The values of the bad seconds (vcDegM
attribute in the MO, Vc4Ttp) and errored blocks (vcDegThreshold
attribute in the MO, Vc4Ttp) can be specified. The default values are 7
seconds and 30%, respectively. The alarm indicates that the VC4
(Virtual Channel) path through the Synchronous Digital Hierarchy
(SDH) transport network is affected by bit errors.
Invalid downlink code configuration
The alarm is generated when the C2 byte received in Virtual Container
4 Path Overhead (VC4 POH) contains the pattern 00000000 in five
consecutive frames. The alarm indicates that there is no payload on
the affected VC4. As a consequence of the fault, the traffic on the
affected VC4 path is lost.

The alarm is generated when an Multiplexer Section Alarm Indication Signal (MS
AIS) is detected in the K2 byte.
As a consequence of the fault, the traffic on the affected Synchronous Digital
Hierarchy (SDH) link is lost.
The likely cause is that the MS is affected by the fault in the remote node.
Transport network errors between the RNC and the remote RNC
A restart in the remote RNC or intermediate system
A Radio Network Subsystem Application Part (RNSAP) failure in the RNC or the
remote RNC

remote and/or field

The alarm is issued when an ete RDI (end-to-end RDI) cell is received in the F5
Operation and Maintenance (O&M) flow of the Virtual Circuit (VC).
The fault is not in the local node, but in a remote node, or between the two nodes
through which the VC is routed. The remote node can be a Plesiochronous
Digital Hierarchy (PDH) or an Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) network
element, or an ATM switch. Alarms, for example, Loss of Signal and Loss of
Frame, identifying the failed entity, are reported from the network element that
detected the fault.
As a consequence of the fault, the traffic is lost. If the repair of the fault requires
site visits, it might be feasible to use an alternative VC for the traffic.
A Denib device is any hardware device that is monitored utilizing the Denib
protocol. Denib is an Ericsson proprietary protocol used when communicating
with certain hardware devices through a serial connection.

A software fault
An incorrect version of the software
A faulty configuration, depending on a software error (only when RruDeviceGroup issues
the alarm)
The alarm indicates that a component is faulty and must be replaced.
The cause of the problem is usually not the unit issuing the alarm, but climate or
environmental reasons, particularly if several boards from different subracks have issued
the alarm. RBS Temperature Out Of Range offers a systematic procedure for determining
the correct cause.
If the alarm is issued together with a fan alarm, then the most likely cause of the alarm is a
faulty fan unit
If the alarm is issued on only one board, then it is probable that the board has developed a
fault, in which case, it is likely that an equipment alarm has also been issued for the board

Cables carry the gamma link between the following: the Baseband Interface
(BBIF) and Radio Frequency Interface (RFIF) boards; the Optical Baseband
Interface (OBIF) board and the RRU; the Radio Unit Interface (RUIF) and the
Radio Unit (RU). Between all other boards, the physical connections are made
through the backplane of the boards.Depending on the configuration, the RBS
can either work with reduced capacity as the RX diversity is lost or lose all
traffic. In the RBS EM it is possible to identify the affected (disabled) cells.

The alarm indicates a problem with the Baseband (BB) clock or the Node B Frame Number
(BFN) clock. The BB clock is generated by the Timing Unit Board (TUB) or the Control Base
Unit (CBU) or the Digital Unit WCDMA (DUW) and distributed to the RBS by one of the
following boards: RFIF, RUIF or REIF, OBIF, or sTRX. The BB clock is the RBS system
clock. The consequence of the fault is that the board or unit issuing the alarm is unable to
carry traffic. If the alarm is issued by a non-redundant RFIF board, RUIF or REIF board,
OBIF, or sTRX, then the RBS is unable to carry traffic. The likely cause of the alarm is a
faulty board or unit.

The likely cause is a faulty TUB/CBU. The RBS can still function with this fault, but traffic is
disrupted in all cells. If the system is configured with two TUBs for redundancy, then it does
not switch to the other TUB automatically.
The alarm is raised by the HwUnit Managed Object (MO) with hwUnitType Battery Fuse
Unit (BFU), when the battery has been disconnected due to a tripped circuit breaker either
by user intervention or as an automatic BFU safe guard.
The battery backup is not available. The RBS will not be able to provide any service in case
of main power failure.
This alarm is issued when the Power Distributor (PD) in the Capacitor Unit (CU)
has detected that the input voltage is above the operator set or hardware
default value. The PD measures voltage and current load in the RBS.
This alarm is issued by the PdDevice Managed Object (MO) when the power distribution
system voltage is above an operator set or hardware default value. The alarm is related to
the Power Distributor (PD). The PD is the essential part of the Capacitor Unit (CU). The PD
measures voltage and current load in the RBS.
This alarm is issued by the TimDevice Managed Object (MO), and indicates problems with
the Timing Unit Board (TUB), the Control Base Unit (CBU) or the Digital Unit WCDMA
(DUW.
The likely cause of the alarm is an internal hardware fault in the TUB/CBU or DUW.
The consequence of the fault is that no calls can be set up and no user data can be
processed. If configured with redundancy, the RBS remains functional but without
redundancy.
