Types of RETs
There are 2 types of RETs
1.Type 1 RET
2.Type 17 Multi RET

Type 1 RET will have antenna nearunit 1 and 2 for each
antenna group
Type 17 will will have antenna nearunit 1 only for each
antenna group

Type of Antennas
Most common type antennas used by AT&T

SBNH - Internal Rets can Be Type 1 or type 17
DBXNH - ( External) RETS Are Type 1 by Default

SBNH Antenna

AITM TYPE 17 = AN000012CN100003647.T1 OR .T2
Not Cascaded ^
AITM TYPE 1 or 17 = AN0012CN10000347T1 OR T2
Cascaded ^
AIAM TYPE 17= AN000012CN100003647.T1 OR T2
Not Cascaded ^

DBXNH Antenna

ATM3 = TYPE 1 AN0000A3XY105279980 (700)
AN0000A3XY178297998 (2100)


TXT Files
When the antanna crew is connecting the RETs they will flash the RET and will pull a TXT
file.

The TXT file will show the
1.type of RET
2.uniqueID
3.If the RET has been flashed to AISG 2.0
4.Sector ID

Confirm AISG 2.0 upgrade Complete
Verify Product Number
Verify Stand Alone / Type 1 or Type 17
AIAM=Type 17 (Multi RET)
AITM= programmable type 1 or type 17
ATM-3 =Type 1-Each antenna has Unique ID and also holds its own serial number.

Note: When you receive the TXT files if you see UMTS and GSM with the LTE TXT files
ask the Tower Crew if they removed LTE from the Daisy chain and made a home run. LTE
should not be Daisy chained with GSM and UMTS.

Scripting
1. Always use proper MOP.
2. When scripting 2c RETs the RETs are controlled by the 1c RRUs
3. If 1c is scripted but locked and disabled before running script unlock the 1c RETs.
We have had a problem with the RET licensing not activating when 1c RETs are
locked.
4. To Check the RET licensing
1. get RetSupport featureStateRetSupport should be activated
2. To activate set proxy no. featureStateRetSupport 1
5. Check Status of Licenses for feature RET Support:
1. featureStateRetSupport=ACTIVATED
2. licenseStateRetSupport=ENABLED
3. serviceStateRetSupport=OPERABLE


Troubleshooting
Always when working with live site before restarting site or live RRU make sure you have
CSB and EIM. If Tower crew onsite they should have EIM No.

When troubleshooting the NIC is limited as to what we can do.
If antenna crew on site ask for TXT files
1.Verify uniqueIDs against TXT files
2.Verify type of RET ie Type 1 RET or Type 17 MultiRET
3.Restart 1c RRU: all RETs 1c and 2c are connected to the 1c RRUs
4.Restart site: I have found that after restarting site you may still need to restart the RRU.
5.Sometimes you can delete the scripted uniqueID restart the RRU and it will pull the
onunituniqueID and enable the RET especially Type 17.
6.If after doing the above the RETs do not enable the tower crew will need to check
connections, also can be bad RRU or Antenna. If they replace the antenna they will need
to reflash the RET and send new TXT file. You can update the uniqueID manually, but if
they change type of antenna Type 1 to Type 17 it will have to be rescripted.
