Location of the CME

The CME is a part of the OSS solution, and is the core of the integrated configuration solution for multi-mode radio network provided by Huawei. In addition, the CME supports typical scenarios of UMTS and GSM networks, such as initial site deployment, network capacity expansion, BTS swapping, and routine configuration adjustment. The CME11.0 provides a solution for the unified management configuration of the GSM/UMTS/LTE (GUL). For the GSM network, the BSC6900 working with the CME provides the GUI data configuration function. For the UMTS network, the CME is an evolution of the WRAN CME V100R008. For the LTE, the CME works with the eRAN2.0/eRAN2.1 and provides functions such as site deployment and routine maintenance. The CME11.0 supports the SRAN6.0 and the downward overall solution.

Advantages of the CME

GUL Multi-mode Configuration

The configuration on the GSM, UMTS, and the LTE is synchronized and the configuration consistency on the GSM, UMTS, and the LTE is checked to ensure that the GUL resources are centrally managed. In the BSC6900, the GSM, UMTS, LTE, and MBTS use the unified device panel to implement the centralized management of the GSM/UMTS devices.

GUI Enhancement

The TOPO site deployment, BTS networking, TRXs of each cell, and timeslot allocation can be viewed in GUI mode on the LMT of the BSC6000. Therefore, the BTS configuration and resource allocation can be displayed clearly.

Display the transmission relations intuitively. Display the timeslot on the GUI.

Advantages of the CME (Continued)

Improvement on Operation Efficiency

The network-level configuration is centralized. Single BSC multiple BSC Configuration of a single BTS Configuration of BTSs in batches through the templates The BTS swapping within a BSC and that between the BSCs can be implemented. In addition, the data adjustment of neighboring cells can be implemented automatically, saving time for script preparation by network optimization engineers. The files configured in offline mode dynamically take effect, improving the file configuration in offline mode. On the LMT, DAT files configured in offline mode can take effect only after the BSC is reset. In this case, services are greatly affected. On the CME, after files are configured in offline mode, corresponding MML scripts are generated so that these files can take effect when the MML scripts are delivered dynamically. In this case, the BSC is not reset and services are not affected. Compared with the LMT of BSC6000, the CME supports the multi-user concurrent configuration in online mode. The data browsing capability and retrieval capability on the entire network are greatly improved. The CME provides the function of data check on the entire network before data is activated, including the check for completeness, redundancy, and consistency. The CME supports the data rollback in key scenarios. The CME supports the parameter comparison. That is, the CME compares the data that has taken effect and the template to check whether data configuration is correct.

Functions of SingleRAN6.0 Working with the CME

MBTS data is configured through the GUI or exporting the negotiation data.

The menu entrance is unified and the operations are simple. In addition, the GU/GL multi-mode MBTS can be created integrally, using the method for single-mode MBTS configuration. This ensures the consistency of common parameters in G/U or G/L mode. A single-mode MBTS can be expanded to a dual-mode MBTS in any mode from GSM, UMTS, or LTE. This ensures the consistency of common parameters in G/U or G/L mode. A dual-mode MBTS can be expanded to a triple-mode MBTS in any mode from G/U, U/L, or G/L.

Capacity of a single-mode MBTS is expanded.


Capacity of a dual-mode MBTS is expanded.

This ensures the consistency of common parameters in G/U /L mode.

The MBTS uses the unified device panel to configure the dual-mode device panel so that data can take effect on both G/U and G/L side simultaneously.

The MBTS device data is configured intuitively. The MBTS device boards in G/U, G/L, and G/U/L mode can be displayed in a unified way. The configuration parameters of MBTS common boards are modified. Parameters of common boards are configured intuitively. Parameters of common boards in G/U, G/L, and G/U/L mode are displayed in a unified way. This ensures the consistency of common board parameters in G/U, G/L, and G/U/L mode.

Parameters of the MBTS common boards are configured in a unified way.


MBTS templates are managed in a unified way. The consistency check result is enhanced. The list of MBTSs to be deployed is exported. The dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) is supported.

Triple Area

Triple area: current area, planned area, and fallback area Current area

Current area is a network data mirroring area used to save the configuration data of the live network. Data in the current area is read-only and cannot be modified directly to ensure the security of the network. Only one current area is available for a network system. Through the CME, the data of the live network can be periodically or automatically synchronized to the current area. Alternatively, users can manually synchronize the data of the live network to the current area.

Planned area

Planned area is a data planning area that is created with the data of a certain NE system. Users can perform data planning in the planned area. Different users can create their respective planned areas. The planned areas are independent of each other. After implementing data planning in the planned area, users can export the generated data scripts. After executing the data scripts to the NE, users can make the data take effect.

Fallback area

The rollback command scripts are generated in the fallback area to perform rollback.
When configuration adjustment effects are not ideal, the CME can quickly roll back to the original configuration status. Currently, the CME supports the rollback on the GSM side in only three scenarios: RNP import, modification of radio algorithm parameters in batches, ARFCN import. In addition, the CME supports the rollback in all adjustment scenarios on the UMTS side in versions later than BSC6900 V900R012C01 (UMTS only). For LTE, CME supports the rollback in all adjustment scenarios..

Version Compatibility

M2000 The recommended matching version is M2000 V200R011. BSC The recommended matching version is BSC6900 V900R013, BSC6900 V900R012, and BSC6900 V900R011, which can provide configuration capability on transmission, device, and radio parameters. The matching BSC6000 only provides the capability for radio layer and BTS swapping that works with the GBSS CME V100R005. The matching BSC6800 and BSC6810 are used only for the BTS swapping crossing specified versions. GBTS The GBTS does not directly match the CME. In this case, the CME matches the GBTS versions that are supported by the BSC6900 versions that match the CME. NodeB The NodeB versions that work with the CME are the NodeB versions that work with the BSC6900/RNC. The CME only matches the baseline versions of the NodeB, such as SPC100, SPC 200, and SPC 300 and their non-baseline versions. The interface configured for NodeB products remains unchanged. For example, if the CME works with SPC 100, then the CME works with versions such as SPC1XX or SPH1XX. The following are principles of the CME to release the NodeB components. For NodeB versions released after a CME version is released, the matching components are required and are released with the NodeB version. When the component is used, refer to the Release Notes of the component to confirm the CME version working with the component. The preceding components will be contained in the following CME version. LTE The eRAN 2.1/eRAN 2.0 is recommended. MBTS The MBTS versions working with the CME depend on the versions of LTE, NodeB, and GBTS working with the MBTS.

Data Configuration Method Configuration Express

The configuration express function provides a method for editing data of a NE based on the table, depending on service requirements. The configuration express function is similar to the general configuration function. The difference is that the configuration express function is more convenient for some service requirements. The configuration express function varies with supported objects and can be divided into several types, such as BSC/radio express, NodeB/BTS express, cell configuration express, and neighboring cell configuration express.

Synchronization in the Current Area

Synchronization mechanism

Full synchronization: All configuration data is uploaded from the NE to the current area and the data previously saved in the current area is overwritten completely. The history data of the current area cannot be saved. Differentiated synchronization: The data modified in the MOC tables of the NE is uploaded to the current area. Therefore, the synchronization efficiency is improved. The incremental synchronization is always used for daily operations. The incremental synchronization is supported since BSC6900.

Synchronization method

The data synchronization can be performed periodically, automatically, or manually. The data synchronization of the current area is performed in firm real time. The data synchronization is performed automatically in the following cases: The CME receives the AVC message reported by the NE and receives no other messages within two minutes.

Check for Data Conflict

Data conflict can be divided into the following types:

Warning: Data conflict of this type may lead to activation failures.


Users add a configuration object in the planned area but the object has been available on the live network. Users modify a configuration object in the planned area but the object has been deleted on the live network. Users delete a configuration object in the planned area but the object has been deleted on the live network.

Note that the data conflict is not checked between objects that have parent-child relations.

Hint: Data conflict of this type occurs because a user modifies data in the planned area but the data has been modified by another user and has been updated to the current area. Whether activation failures occur depends on configuration rules on the live network.

During the data configuration, users can check the data modification on the live network through the AVC message and adjust data configuration in time. After the data configuration is complete, users need to check whether data is conflicted.

Compare user configuration data in the planned area with configuration data of the live network in the
current area to locate conflicted data. Users can adjust configuration data in the planned area based on the check result to ensure that the subsequent activation is successful.

Generation of Scripts

The CME supports two types of MML/XML file: differentiated data MML/XML file and full data MML/XML file. BSC and BTS: MML commands will be generated; NodeB and eNodeB: XML file will be generated.

Differentiated data MML/XML scripts: MML/XML configuration scripts are generated based on modified contents.

This type of command is generated during the configuration of the planned area and is related to the configuration process. This type of command supports the exporting of modified contents separately by exporting multiple differentiated scripts in the same planned area. This type of command supports all configuration operations and is applicable to the scenarios such as parameter modification, radio network planning, and optimization. This type of command supports the exporting of all configuration scripts based on the object selected by users The exported objects include: BSC data, including data on the BSC, equipment, transmission, and radio network BTS data, including data on the BTS equipment, transmission, and radio network NodeB and eNodeB data, including all data of site. This type of command is generated according to the data in the planned area and is not related to the configuration process. This type of command is applicable to special scenarios such as initial network deployment or site deployment.

Full data MML/XML scripts: MML configuration scripts are generated based on objects.

End

Timed activation: The configuration script is activated at the time specified by the user. Stopped once an error occurs: The script activation is stopped immediately after an error occurs during a command execution. In this case, the script activation resumes after the command is modified or skipped. Skipping the error command: When error occurs during a command execution for activating the script, the error command is skipped and the script activation resumes from the next command. Pre-activation: The NE creates a simulative digital environment for the M2000 to perform the pre-activation function. In this case, the M2000 can confirm whether data in the configuration files to be activated takes effect.

Incremental Scripts Activation: Method 1Scripts Executor

The Incremental Scripts generated by CME could be activated using Scripts Executor.

Scripts Executor is embedded in integrated CME. The difference between execution in standalone and integrated CME is:

For standalone CME, the incremental scripts generated by standalone CME needs to be imported to integrated CME( Open scripts executor, create project, upload incremental scripts, and activate projects manually). For integrated CME, it could jump to scripts executor and activate project automatically after exporting incremental scripts.

Frequency refarming scenario: The verification of commands are different from batch commands. When exporting incremental scripts, if scripts are service affected, the CME will pop out messages for user to confirm the operations. Operation steps on integrated CME:

Scripts are executed through the Batch window on the WEB LMT. Multiple execution methods are provided for a better man-machine interaction. The efficiency for delivering scripts to take effect is low. Scripts are delivered in batches by running the RUN BATCHFILE command on the WEB LMT. The efficiency for delivering scripts to take effect is high. Scripts are uploaded to the script executor provided by the integrated CME.
