Introduction

1 Introduction
1.1

About the BTS commissioning


This document describes how to commission WCDMA Base Stations (BTSs) using
Commissioning Wizard from the WCDMA BTS Site Manager software. For AXC commissioning, refer to the Commissioning and Integrating the AXC document. See also the
BTS-related RNC documentation.
This document provides instructions on how to proceed with manual commissioning
when there is no commissioning file available, for template commissioning and planned
commissioning with a commissioning file, and for reconfiguration commissioning. In
addition there are chapters describing testing of the BTS after commissioning.
Nokia Siemens Networks recommends that the user has the relevant knowledge of base
station systems and equipment. Pay careful attention to all warnings and cautions.
These instructions are based on the assumption that the user knows how to use basic
computer software. At least the following actions are needed: installing SW, uninstalling
SW and changing the IP address in the PC.

!
Only properly trained and authorised personnel may perform installation, commissioning, or maintenance operations on any Nokia Siemens Networks base transceiver
station (BTS).
Screenshots included are representations and should be considered as examples only.
The current release of the WCDMA BTS Site Manager software may differ slightly from
the shots depicted. Also, different BTS configurations and cabinet types reflect the unit
views in the Commissioning Wizard accordingly.

Introduction to WCDMA BTS commissioning


Generic commissioning tasks
Commissioning is a sequence of tasks, such as visual checks and inspections, parameter and SW configurations, tests, and reporting, to ensure that the stand alone equipment in question has been properly installed, has no faulty units and is ready for
integration.
The generic commissioning steps can be seen in the Commissioning overview diagram
below. The details of each step depend on the equipment and version in question and
can be found in the relevant user manual.

g When the RAML2.1 conversion (RAN885: Remote BTS SCF Management for
Flexi/Ultra/MetroSite BTS) is carried out by the WN6.0 SW, two WN5.0- and WN6.0specific commissioning files are stored into the BTS. WN6.0 SCF is converted automatically when WN6.0 SW delivery is done and WN6.0 SW is activated (after BTS
reset).
Automatic conversion is active until first recommissioning is done with WN6.0.

Commissioning overview

To get all the BTS capacity and features in use, required licences need to be downloaded to the BTS from the NetAct. For more information on licences, see the Licence
Management document and the New Features document in the BTS SW release documentation.
Visual checks and inspection
The first part of the visual check is done before powering on the BTS at the power
system. When all is proven to be OK, the 'Power on' check is done and the LED status

is verified. The equipment is checked visually to see that there are no fatal installation
errors, which might lead to equipment damage during the power on.
The following items are checked:

the grounding
power cabling and supply voltage
other cables and fibres
LED status during power up
TX/RX/antenna connector torque check

Local SW download
This step contains all the actions required to update and/or download SW to the equipment or to the PC for managing the equipment at the site. The exact order in the step
sequence is equipment-specific and thus might take place after some self test.
Parameter setup
This contains all the actions required to set up the parameters for commissioning and
for integration. Parameters may include jumper settings and software parameters fed in
manually or as a file. Equipment specific user manual describes the details. Some of the
parameters need to be given during the test step.
Commissioning tests
This contains the key tests which need to be carried out to ensure the basic functionality
of the equipment in question. Some of the tests are activated automatically, some of
them are run as a part of the Commissioning Wizard and some may need to be activated
separately. Some of the tests are optional and are run for diagnostic purposes if there
is a reason to suspect the functionality. Typical test and measurements in the BTS commissioning:

internal loop tests


external alarm tests
site support system alarms shown at the BTS
RF max power measurement (optional test)

Some of the functional tests need more parameters than are available during the commissioning and thus can be run only after the BTS has been integrated and it is able to
get the rest of the parameters from the RNC.
Troubleshooting
The purpose of troubleshooting is to rectify the problems found by analysing the test
results and perhaps running some further tests to identify the cause of the problem. For
information about troubleshooting hints and optional tests, see Troubleshooting UltraSite and MetroSite WDCMA Base Station document. To avoid double work, it is essential to be aware of the current known problems. The Technical Notes (TN), List of
Generic Faults and Change Deliveries (CD) need to be studied from time to time for
latest information about known problems and workaround solutions.
Based on the experience and HW repair statistics about the cause of the faults one
major group is 'no fault found'. To minimise unnecessary shipping, spare waiting and
'no fault found' reports, it is essential to double-check the suspected unit one more time
before sending it to repair.

Commissioning UltraSite and MetroSite WCDMA BTS

Once the unit is suspected and the replacement seems to rectify the problem, the
original suspected unit needs to be tried once more. In many cases the actual reason
which rectified the problem is power off/on reset or plug off/push in reset.
In a complex BTS system with several independent power supply units it may occur that
the unit does not reset properly even when the power of the unit is switched off and on
again. There might be clock or bus signals still alive on the backplane 'feeding' some
voltage to the unit affecting the internal circuitry. In these cases the unit must be
removed and re-inserted totally to effect a reset.
Finally, when the plug-in unit is really suspected or proven faulty, the appropriate error
report attached with possible log or test report files is filled. The following information
needs to be clearly available in the report:

site and equipment identification


unit identification
based on which test the unit was suspected faulty
what other units were suspected
what parameters were used
what other tests failed
what was the error/fault message/alarm number

In case of unit replacement the site inventory need to be updated.


Bar code reading and site inventory
To be able to trace a given unit based on the serial number or the version number it is
important to collect and keep the information about the unit version and serial numbers
up to date. The most advanced units and their SW versions support the electronic serial
and version number detection and recording. Some less advanced and passive units do
not necessarily have this feature and those units need to be scanned. Most of the units
installed on the BTS have a set of extra serial and version number labels which must be
attached to the BTS cabinet door or in the inventory form in the site folder during the
installation. During the bar code reading also these labels need to be scanned.
More information on the bar code reading is available in the Nokia NetAct documentation Using Bar Code Scanner and Using Asset Manager documents.
Reporting
The most important part of the commissioning is the reporting. Without relevant reports
the equipment can be considered not commissioned. The purpose of reporting is to keep
track of the latest status of the equipment and the work done. Some new equipment
supports features where the reports are automatically updated to the main database in
the NetAct system, some need a few manual steps, and some reports need to be
saved/printed manually. Typical reports are:

Some of the reports may be used as a technical appendix for a site acceptance document.
Note the master WAM allocation rules: in RU10, the master WAM selection algorithm
prefers the WAM with the least baseband capacity (WSP) installed. A non-commissioned WAM can also be selected as the master WAM to balance the load between subracks. After the upgrade from previous releases, the master WAM location may be
changed to a less loaded WAM according to the rules stated earlier. This will not trigger
automatic BTS restart, but is done during the next BTS restart.

Defining WCDMA carrier information


Purpose
This Wizard page is for defining WCDMA carrier frequencies. The allowed UARFCN
values for frequency bands are displayed below the Carrier Candidates table.
The carrier candidates are used in testing purposes. When the BTS is in the test dedicated state, the user can run different test models, BTS BER test and WCDMA BTS loop
test. The parameter uses the so-called UARFCN convention defined in the IUB specification. The UARFCN values are operator specific and defined by the 3GPP. The parameter specifies the downlink frequency.
Steps

Enter the UARFCN (UTRAN Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number) for each
local cell in the corresponding fields.
See the figure below.
At least one carrier must be defined for a frequency band. Up to four WCDMA carrier
frequencies can be allocated for an operator. The frequencies are calculated according
to the entered channel numbers and displayed in the Frequency MHz fields.

Figure 12

g Check that the actual frequency channels (number of carriers and carrier spacing)
to be used in the BTS configuration match the carrier spacing limitations of the
WPAs.

g When running test models with dual carrier WTRs, the local cell where TRX1 is
assigned should have lower WCDMA carrier frequency than the local cell where
TRX2 is assigned.

Defining local cell groups


Purpose
This Wizard page is for assigning Wideband Signal Processor (WSP) units and local
cells to local cell groups. Each group must have at least one local cell and one installed
WSP.
This page is not shown if only one local cell is defined in the Local Cell Resources page
or if the BTS configuration has only one installed WSP.

g Using local cell groups is mandatory if the total number of TRXs in the local cells is
more than 6. Otherwise using the groups is optional.
Summary
The following summarizes the rules for defining the local cell groups. For more information, see Appendix: Defining Local Cell Groups.
1. To enable a softer handover, local cells that are supposed to use the same frequency should be included in the same Local Cell Group (LCG).
2. When one WPA is shared by two local cells (TRXs), the cells connected to the same
WPA must be allocated to the same LCG. The 6-sector configuration and MultiOperator RAN (MO-RAN) with dedicated BB resources are exceptions which are
described in rule number 3.
3. If the shared WPA cells (TRXs) cannot be allocated under the same LCG, each LCG
must have at least one WSP from each subrack. This is the case with 6-sector configurations (for example, 6x2) or in the MO-RAN configuration with dedicated WSP
resources.
4. If two WAMs are installed per subrack in case of a shared WPA, WSP slots 4-6, 1012 and 16-18 must have both LCGs assigned.
5. WTR TRX division: LCRs of one LCG can be divided between WTR pairs:
LCG having six LCRs: 0, 2 or 4 LCRs per WTR pair.
LCG having 1 - 5 LCRs: 0 - 4 LCRs per WTR pair; three LCRs can be configured
when another LCG does not have an LCR in the same WTR pair.
EUBB baseband capacity can be assigned to local cell groups if BB pooling is taken in
use and if the HW configuration contains EUBB WSP units. The sum of EUBB baseband
capacity for LCG must be always equal to 100%.
LCG which contain MIMO shall get EUBB capacity. One LCG can take whole 100%
EUBB capacity if the other LCG contains at least one installed Ultra WSP unit and
contains only non-MIMO cells.

Define Mapping HSPA local cells to baseband HW and Pararell Interference Cancellation (PIC).
HSPA local cells can be mapped to baseband HW resources (EUBB subrack and
WSPC units).
When HSPA mapping to local cells is taken into use, it has to be performed for all frequency layers (WCDMA carrier candidates) belonging to the same local cell group.
All local cells with the same carrier candidate value (UARFCN) should be mapped to the
same baseband HW.
Paralell Interference Cancellation (PIC) pooling is supported if the HW configuration
contains rel2 EUBB units. PIC can be used with max. 2 LCG, if the configuration

If we consider the Happy Bit Ratio to be an indication on how well the BTS is able to
serve UEs, that is to make them happy, then the UE transmission power limitations
would interfere with the calculation. UPHThreshold parameter is used to filter the power
limitation situations from the Happy Bit Ratio calculation. BTS discards the Happy Bits,
that are reported to it, when the reported UPH value is below the confiugred threshold.
If no UPH filtering is needed, then this parameter value should be set to 0.

Defining HSPA Quality of Service settings


Purpose
In the Commissioning - HSPA Quality of Service Settings page you can configure
the settings for HSPA Quality of Service.
For more information, see the HSDPA in BTS and HSUPA in BTS documents.

Figure 16

HSPA Quality of Service Settings page

Steps
1

Enter the scheduling weight value in the HSPA Scheduling Weight (0...100)
column.
Define a weight value for each Scheduling Priority Indicator (SPI) value after defining in
the RNC setup how the different traffic classes (Background, Interactive, Streaming) are
mapped to different SPI values and which SPI values are configured with Nominal Bit
Rates (NBR). The weights in the BTS must be configured according to that mapping.

SPI values which are mapped for Streaming traffic class have a weight of 0.
All remaining SPI values, also those with non-zero Nominal Bit Rate, have a nonzero weight.

The scheduler serves first the traffic with GBR requirements in SPI order. If there is
excess capacity after the GBR requirements are fullfilled, as many as possible NBR
requirements are fulfilled in SPI order. All remaining capacity after that is divided according to scheduling weights. If there is no GBR or NBR traffic, all capacity is divided
according to the weights between the priority classes.

Control All Data: This means that in a risk of Iub congestion situation, the HSDPA
CC mechanisms are able to reduce the number of credits to zero. This setting is
intended for traffic without bit rate guarantees.
Control Data Over GBR:This means that in a risk of Iub congestion situation, the
HSDPA CC mechanisms are able to reduce all the credits that exceed GBR rates.
This setting is intended for traffic with bit rate guarantees.
No Control: This means that HSDPA CC has no authority over an SPI class and the

Expected outcome
The results in the report are comprised in a way that the fully successful loops are at the
bottom of the page and the loops that are not, are on the top of the page. However,
Resources Not Reserved (reported when the BTS is connected to the RNC and the
BTS WSP resources are allocated for common channels) does not indicate a failed
result, rather that they are reserved in other use than this test. More information on the
test results is available in the Troubleshooting UltraSite WCDMA Base Station
document and in the WCDMA BTS Site Manager Online Help.
Unexpected outcome
If parts of the test are not ok, run the test again with the failed units. If the results do not
change, replace the units in question:

if the test loops from WSP to WTR within the same sub-rack are ok, but not ok to
another sub-rack, the most probable fault is with WSM cabling
if the equipment has been cabled correctly, the fault is with the cable itself or with
the WSM card
if the test fails through one WTR, but not through other WTRs, replace the WTR
if the test fails though one WSP, but not through other WSPs, replace the WSP
if the test fails through one WAM subrack, but not through other WAM subracks,
replace the WAM

If replacing the units does not rectify the situation, the fault is in cabling or the cabinet.

For AXC commissioning, refer to the Commissioning and Integrating the AXC document. Also refer to the BTS-related RNC documentation.
If the commissioning is unsuccessful, refer to Performing reconfiguration commissioning.
Further information
Typically the network configuration is stored on individual unit serial number level to
enable fast and efficient search in the network, in case such information is needed. One
of the entry points for this data is after commissioning.
Depending on the requirements of the IM system where this information is stored, there
might be several options to collect the data. The most typical is to scan the units with a
bar code reader. Nokia Siemens Networks recommends a certain bar code reader HW
and SW to enable more automated transfer of data to Nokia NetAct. More information
is available in the Nokia NetAct documentation Using Bar Code Scanner and Using
Asset Manager documents.

6 Performing template commissioning


Purpose
Template commissioning provides an option to commission a BTS using a predefined
template file. Since the same BTS configurations are commonly used in several BTSs,
the user can store a commissioning file of a BTS and use it as a template file when commissioning similar BTS sites. This will significantly reduce the number of parameters that
need to be configured - the BTS name needs to be changed, for example.
All parameters needed to configure the BTS are determined at the network planning
stage. It is essential that the input values match the expected values in the network plan.
Do not select the values randomly. For more information on commissioning parameters,

8 Performing reconfiguration commissioning


Purpose
Reconfiguration commissioning provides an option to commission an already commissioned BTS. The reconfiguration commissioning is used for the following purpose:

The BTS has such a problem that requires commissioning.


The site has been extended (for example, carriers are added to sectors, WAMs are
added, or HSPA BB resource utilisation is altered).
The environment has changed (for example, some TRXs are moved to other sites).
There is a need to extend the BTS chain, which requires changes in other BTS configurations.

During the reconfiguration commissioning, the BTS remains operational up until the
mandatory site reset at the end of the commissioning.
All parameters needed to configure the BTS are determined at the network planning
stage. It is essential that the input values match the expected values in the network plan.
Do not select the values randomly. For more information on commissioning parameters,

In case of a failure in any part of the whole commissioning procedure, an alarm will
appear in the Alarms view. For BTS fault descriptions, see the UltraSite and MetroSite
WCDMA Base Station Faults document and the WCDMA BTS Site Manager Online
Help.
You can check the cause of a failure from the commissioning reports. Check also the
LED states of units. After successful commissioning the LED state is stable green.
The commissioning procedure may fail, for example, when:

autodetect feature did not find all units in the BTS


there is no connection to the BTS - check that the BTS is powered up - the LED on
a power supply unit is a good indicator
cabling is not connected correctly, especially if WSM front cables are chained incorrectly.

For more detailed informaitons on the Local Cell Groups and Baseband Allocation, see
Dimensioning WCDMA RAN: Ultra BTS Baseband document.
When one WPA is shared by two local cells (TRXs), the cells connected to the same
WPA must be allocated to the same Local Cell Group (LCG). The 6-sector configuration
and Multi-Operator RAN (MO-RAN) with dedicated BB resources are exceptions which
are described later in this section. The shared WPA is a typical configuration when the
number of cells is more than six. See the example figures below.

with WOC
This chapter describes RF cabling and commissioning parameters required for the
WCDMA BTS 2+2 and 2+2+2 CEC configurations including a Wideband Output
Combiner (WOC) unit.
It is important that all TX RF cable chains between the Wideband Transmitter and
Receiver (WTR) unit and WOC unit are equal in length as illustrated in the following
figure. If the length of these RF cables is different, the "LPA reflected power too high" or
"LPA linearization fault" alarm may occur.
Cables from WIC to WPA must be

Commissioning instructions
The following figures show the BTS parameter settings required for the 2+2 and 2+2+2
CEC configurations where a WOC unit is used to combine the output of two Wideband
Power Amplifier (WPA) units into a single Wideband Antenna Filter (WAF) unit. BTS
configurations incorporating a WOC unit are different for the Release 1 and Release 2
hardware. This example of the commissioning procedure illustrates the Release 1
hardware in a 2+2+2 CEC BTS with six WPAs and WOC units in use. However, the
settings are generic and have to be used in any configuration where the WOC unit is
used to combine the output of two WPAs into a single WAF.
