Introduction
iManager M2000 is the most important Huawei tool for operation & maintenance of Huawei RAN. M2000 is a centralized management platform that can perform various operations including data configuration, alarm management, performance management and software management. M2000 follows the server-client concept. Server is centrally located in customer premises and is interconnected to various NE over IP network. It is normally running on Sun Microsystems servers and on Solaris operating systems together with Sybase as database. The M2000 client can be installed in a windows PC and requires only IP connectivity with M2000 server, correct firewall configuration and authentication user rights.

With M2000, we have a powerful, consistent, comprehensive and easy to use tool to perform basically all tasks related to operation & maintenance and most basic operations will be introduced in the following slides.

Performance management (2/5)


Performance management is the M2000 works in interconnection with the NE. M2000 through a file interface collects the performance files from all NE every measurement period.

Both Measurement counters and measurement objects can be activated/de-activated within M2000.
When M2000 collects all relative data, it has to filter them through a NE specific mediation software and then store the corresponding data into the Sybase database. All user queries applied through M2000 client are now processes in the Sybase database (performance database)

Introduction
Local Maintenance Terminal (LMT) is considered as the first level of support for operation & maintenance in Huawei RNC. In RAN12 and latest versions, LMT doesnt require local installation but is a web-based version. Nevertheless, some LMT tools are available also offline (LMT offline tools). Both online and offline functionality of LMT will be shown in the following slides. In order to connect to LMT, all we need is an IP connectivity with the RNC, proper configuration of the firewall and authentication user rights.

WNCS (3/8)
Basic principle of GPEH measurements

The RNC/RBS can log different types of events.

Recording starts at the beginning of the next 15-minute Result Output Period (ROP) after activation from OSS. The events are collected in GPEH data files (main file and subfiles). The main file contains administrative information about GPEH recording, while subfiles contains recorded events. Depending on size of records, there could be more subfiles for each ROP.

Events are grouped in: RNC internal events: they are triggered by specific internal conditions (channel switch occurs,
admission control request, terminates of connections, congestions, cell is not included in neighbor set...

Inter node events: Layer 3 protocol messages as specified by 3rd Generation Partnership Project
(3GPP). There are several group of inter node events according to the protocols (RRC, NBPA, RANAP, RNSAP, PCAP, SABP)

All events have list of parameters that define events: EVENT_PARAM_SCANNER_ID, EVENT_PARAM_TIMESTAMP_HOUR(MINUTE/SECONDS/MILLISEC), EVENT_PARAM_EVENT_ID, EVENT_PARAM_UE_CONTEXT, EVENT_PARAM_C_ID_xy...

WNCS (4/8)
Basic principle of GPEH measurements

Main GPEH events, needed for WNCS, are: INTERNAL_SOHO_DS_MISSING_NEIGHBOUR: Event is captured at reception of a
measurement report for event 1a or event 1c, where the triggering cell is not included in neighbor set.

INTERNAL_SOHO_DS_UNMONITORED_NEIGHBOUR: event is captured when handover proposal is received, where the proposed cell is included in the neighbor set, but not included in the monitored set.

Parameters of this events contains information of best cell, RNC_ID, trigger cell scrambling code, RSCP/ECNO of trigger cell...
When GPEH measurements are completed, WNCS can processes files and represent results WNCS measurements can cover several ROPs, but for each ROP period separate files, with recorded event data, will be created.

RNO WNCS Cell report (Defined Neighours)

In Defined Neighbour tab all neighbour relations that are defined are listed.

The list, for example, can be sorted according to the number of attempts to establish radio link (RL). So, relations with no or few RL attempts could be removed.

When the active set contains more than one cell, the monitored set (limited to 32 relations) will be a union of all defined neighbour relations for the cells in the active set. Those relations that could not fit into the monitored set are called unmonitored neighbours.

Unmonitored neighbour list could help to detect potential problems due to limited number of monitored relations.

RNO WNCS Cell report (Undefined Neighours) Undefined list of neighbour
relations is created owing to GPEH INTERNAL_SOHO_DS_MISSING_ NEIGHBOUR events.

The list, for examle, can be sorted according to the number of possible RL adding attempts (or number of missing events). So, potential relations could be add.

Number of drop calls due to missing relations, average RSCP, time in active set and/or Average EcNo could also be considered when decisions are taking regarding adding neighbour relations.

Probable cell name is yielded due to algorithm that maps a cell name according to scrambling code, distance of potential cell, cell positions... Unknown is reported if algorithm could not map cell name.
