4. Check After Power-on


Once check before power-on is complete, power on iBSC equipment in correct
sequence. At that moment, iBSC data have not been configured and boards may be in
normal condition. So, check items after power-on mainly cover check on board power
supply and fan direction.

4.1 Power on Procedures


iBSC power-on procedures are as follows:

1. In DC power distribution cabinet, turn on -48 V power.

2. Turn on -48 V power switches on board in power distribution box on rack top.

3. Turn on -48 V power switches on rear box filter.

4.2 Board Power Supply Check


1. For the first-time power on, plug boards into correct slots. LED of front board
should be on. If it is off, then plug out the board to check whether power is in
normal condition.

2. When board is powered on, board software and hardware are automatically
initialized. After that, see whether board is in normal condition based on the
LED indication.

Please refer to ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Hardware Manual for details of board
LED.

4.3 Fan Wind Test


Test procedures:

1. If there is board in the box under fan box, then plug it out.

2. Power up equipment, fan in P power box on the top layer of cabinet starts
normally.

3. Put a 20 cm long paper slip into the box under power box. If the paper slip is
not blowing up (which indicates fan is not working), or it is blowing downward

(which indicates wind direction is wrong), check iBSC (V6.20) internal power
cable connection and fan.

4. If paper slip is blowing upward, it indicates the wind is coming from the rack
bottom. Under this condition, fan is working normally and wind direction is
also correct.

After OMP normally starts, RUN LED on MPX86 board slowly flashes; under
the HyperTerminal prompt ->, enter SCSShowMcmInfo, and then enter, pop up
the following prompt:

SCSMCProc: End all 69 base process power on sucess.

SCSMCProc: Current Proc InnerState is MASTER

SCSMCProc: Current MCM State is WORK

value = 1 = 0x1

 Note
Board status of print is “MASTER” and “WORK”, which indicates OMP is in normal
working condition; otherwise, it is abnormal.

5.3.2 Upload ZXG10.cfg

ZXG10.cfg is foreground variable configuration file. Its details are as below:

followings are some instances and solutions.

(1) No display on HyperTerminal & unable to enter

Problem:

There is no display on HyperTerminal. When entering, no shell prompt

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION.


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

MPX86_2-> displays.

Solution:

When board CPU version is running, the serial port output will be prohibited.
Its solution is to enter 3gzte, and then enter to see whether the prompt shows
up.

Check whether both ends of serial port cable are connected correctly.

Manually reset board to see whether there exists print on serial port. If not, the
serial port cable may go wrong.

(2) Incorrect rear board DIP switch

Problem:

RUN LED fast flashes (5Hz), ALM LED is off. Continuously print on
HyperTerminal.

Boot Task send to 128.0.31.1 msg succ! \\Note: IP should be 128.0.31.1

ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

flags (f) : 0x0

Solution:

The above print indicates this board is not OMP. If the slot is correct (11 or 12
slot), then check whether rear board DIP switch is correct. Rack No. should be
0 and frame No. should be 1.

(3) BOOT version is not the release version

Problem:

The board reset continuously. After reset, HyperTerminal prints.

Booting from network

Loading...

Solution:

The above print indicates BOOT version for debugging. When starting BOOT,
download VxWorks image from debugging PC.

It is necessary to replace release version BOOT. If board supports online


downloading BOOT, online upgrade BOOT version on debugging PC. Please
refer to the relevant document for details. If not, then it is necessary to program
BOOT chip with programmer.

(4) OMP fails to acquire ompcfg.ini on background

Problem:

RUN LED fast flashes (5Hz), ALM LED is off. Continuously print on
HyperTerminal.

Retry 8 times connect to OMC ftp server ...!

Finally print:

Get Omp VerInfo from OMC failed!

Get OmpVerInfo failed, Load Cpu VerFile From DOC!

Solution:

The above print indicates BOOT fails to acquire ompcfg.ini from OMC server.
Troubleshoot as follows:

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION.


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

Check whether network connection is in normal condition. For instance, check


whether network cable on OMP rear plug-in card is connected with OMC2
interface, or whether OMC IP of OMP can ping through on server. If not, check
the connection condition of network cable.

Check whether ftp service on OMC server is in normal condition. For instance,
try to ftp logon server on client (using server 129 address set in OMP serial
port). Use uep user name and see whether it succeed to logon.

Check whether parameter set in OMP serial port is correct.

Check whether ompcfg.ini file is under the directory saving OMC server
version file.

(5) OMP fails to acquire version file from background

Problem: board resets continuously. After reset, print it in HyperTerminal.

Getting Omp VerInfo from OMC ...!

Get OmpVerInfo from OMC succ! \\succed to acquire ompcfg.ini

After that, print continuously:

0x3a6188 (tBoot): Use new ftp client. Taget: 0x1000081

Retry 4 times connect to OMP ftp server ...!

After printing the following information, board resets:

Connecting Omp ftp server failed!

OMP Download VerFile from OMC failed!

Before Board reset!

Give up master.

Solution:

The above print indicates ompcfg.ini has been acquired successfully. But it fails
to acquire version file.

Check whether the directory for saving OMC server version file has the
relevant version file.

(6) It fails to power up database process

Problem:

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION.


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

RUN LED fast flashes (5Hz), ALM LED fast flashes (2Hz). Enter
SCSShowMcmInfo on HyperTerminal or telnet, it displays database process
power up fails.

SCSMCProc: Base process pZDB_Startup power on failed.

SCSMCProc: Current Proc InnerState is MASTER

SCSMCProc: Current MCM State is WAIT_PROC_POWER_ON

Solution:

The main reason for database process power-on failure is that ZDB file on OMP
does not exist or data configuration has error. If it is a new OMP board,
generally it lacks ZDB file.

FTP logon OMP, user name and password are omc/omc (or zte/zte). If using
OMP 128 address, it allows anonymity logon. View whether CfgTable.ZDB and
DBVer.ZDB are in the directories of /DOC0/DATA1 and /IDE0/DATA1. At
least one directory has ZDB file. Database process will preferentially read ZDB
file under /DOC0/DATA1.

If there is no ZDB file on OMP, then get ZDB from OMC server or use the
backup ZDB. And then upload it to OMP. ZDB file includes CfgTable.ZDB and
DBVer.ZDB. Generally, upload to both /DOC0/DATA1 and /IDE0/DATA1. If
the size of ZDB file is about tens of M, only upload to /IDE0/DATA1. Under

7.3.5 Attentions to Data Configuration

Data configuration is the core operation of BSC system, which is of great importance
in the entire system. Any faults in the data configuration may affect the system running
normally. Therefore the operator should pay attention to the following points when
configuring and modifying data:

1. Before data configuration, relevant data for system running should be prepared

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION.


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

(such as the interconnection data at A interface or GB interface, etc.), the data


should be reliable and served with a complete data configuration plan. A good plan
can not only make the data clear and in order, but also enhance the system
reliability.

2. Before any data modification, the current data should be backed up; after the
modification is complete, the data is synchronized to BSC and BTS, and confirmed
with its validity; at this time the data should be backed up again.

3. The data configured and modified in NM Client should be valid after synchronizing
to BSC and BTS. The modification to the current running system data should be
checked carefully before transmitting, so as to ensure normal system running with
correct data.

Caution:

Since many parameters should be configured, only the important ones and the ones
must be configured are listed in this book, which should be configured according to the
instruction; other non-specified parameters should keep the default values, which are
not mentioned here.

11. Software Version Management


Abstract
Software load involves the following major procedures: import the version file to the
database, add the version to the NE, create general version, activate the version, and so
on. By importing the version to the database and OMC, the system copies the local
software to ZXG10 NetNumen-G server and modifies the background database. By
synchronizing the NE, the system then uploads ZXG10 NetNumen-G server via FTP to
the corresponding iBSC OMP and modifies OMP database. By creating general
version, the system generates general version at the background and modifies the
related data forms in the background database. By creating specific version, the system
generates the specific version in iOMCR and modifies the related data forms in the
background database. By activating general version, the system generates the general
version at the foreground and modifies the related data forms in the foreground
database. By updating general version, the system modifies the general version at both
foreground and background. By activating specific version, the system generates the
specific version at the foreground and modifies the related data forms in the foreground
database. By deactivating specific version, the system deletes the specific version at the
foreground and modifies related data forms in the foreground database. By deletion
from NE, the system deletes the foreground version, and by deletion from OMC, it
deletes the background version. This chapter will elaborate on the software version
management.

The major procedures for SDR software loading include: BTS software packet
creation, software packet download, software packet activation. By way of creating
BTS software packet, the system copies the software from local server to ZXG10
NetNumen-G server, and modifies the background database; by way of downloading
version packet, the system uploads the software from ZXG10 NetNumen-G server via
FTP to the SDR under corresponding iBSC; by way of activating version packet, the
system sets the standby inactivated version packet of corresponding SDR as current
running version packet.

1. Select software version

Select the software version according to the actual demands. The version
information should include software ID and version number.

2. Import software to database

Before the software is loaded, it should be firstly imported to the database. By


executing Create Version File to OMC or Create Version Files in Batch to
OMC, the system copies the software from the client to ZXG10 NetNumen-G
server, and then through Synchronizing Version Data to NE, the system FTPs

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 4


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

the software form ZXG10 NetNumen-G server to corresponding iBSC OMP. At


the same time, the version information is written in both the foreground and
background databases.

3. Set general software version

The procedure is to create, delete or modify the version record of the general
software. After the general software is set, it can be used to load the same kind
of software in batch.

4. Load general software version

Notice OMP to load the general software to all the boards that run the software.

After the version upgrade, if the new version cannot start up or there are some
severe faults due to some reason, the system may break down. Therefore, the
original version should be saved before the version upgrade. If the above case
occurs, resume the normal running status with the original version.

5. Set specific software version

This procedure is to create, modify or delete the specific software of a specific


board.

6. Load specific software version

Notice OMP to load a pre-set specific software version to a specific board and
then run the software. Because the specific software version has priority over
the general software version, if the board pre-loaded with a general software
version and then a specific software version, the specific software version will
run on the board.

7. Query the running foreground software

Send a query command to a foreground board, the board will reply ZXG10
NetNumen-G server with its running version information which is then
forwarded to the client and displayed at the client.

6. Configure the No.7 link set

The No.7 link set consists of several signaling links. Usually one link set is enough
for an adjacent office.

7. Configure the No.7 link

Designate PCM, TS, SMP module, and Link code SLC in the figure below.

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 3


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

8. Configure the No.7 route

The No.7 route specifies the link set to transmit signaling. At most two link sets are
available. Office ID is the office of the link set. As shown in the figure below, because
there is only one MSC as the adjacent office, Office ID should be set as 1. Linkset is
the configured link set under the adjacent office. Because there is only one link set, the
users only need to select 1 in the Linkset 1 down-drop list.

9. Configure the No.7 office route

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 4


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

The No.7 office route specifies the route to transmit signaling to an adjacent office. At
most four routes are available. In the figure below, only Route 1 is available.

10. FLEXA is a new function in iBSC 6.20, which indicates one BSC can be
connected with multiple MSC, each of which consists of a MSC POOL. This
function can be enabled/disabled in global resource interface as the following
figure:

After this function is enabled, information of the operator and MSC office should be set.

Information to be added into MSC office direction information include office direction,
MSC ID, MSC network route ID and MSC load sharing ratio (the information can be
queried at CN side, which is configured the same as CN side), as well as multiple
signaling point office direction (the same configuration as that at A interface), poll
times (self-defined).

Set relevant data in the operator’s information page. MSC NRI length, MSC NULL-NRI ID and MSC

CN ID should be queried on CN side, which should be configured with the same value, otherwise the
mobile cannot access to the network.

Note: Even if FLEX A is not supported on iBSC side, the MSC CN ID mentioned
above should be configured with the same value as CN side, otherwise the mobile
cannot access to the network. Other parameters are not required to be configured, the
default values should be kept.

12.1.2 Networking between iBSC and 3G CN

3G CN introduces MSCServer and MGW. After the introduction of 3GPP R4, in the
principles of separating control and bearing, MSC is composed of MSC Server and
MGW. MSC Server controls services and calls, while MGW controls bearing. The 3G
CN networking is as follows:

The following part describes three networking modes between iBSC and 3G CN.

12.1.2.1 Networking Mode 1

iBSC is associated with MGW only. CN provides the signaling points for MGW and
MSCServer. The networking topology is as follows:

MSC
iBSC MGW Server

A interface SS7

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 8


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

Because MSCServer processes with calls and services, iBSC signaling should be sent
to MSCServer for processing. In this networking mode, MGW and MSCServer are
connected via SS7, and MGW serves as STP (signaling transfer point) to forward iBSC
signaling to MSCServer.

iBSC A interface should be configured as follows:

 iBSC has 2 adjacent offices, namely, MGW and MSCServer. It is associated with
MGW and quasi-associated with MSCServer.

 iBSC is associated with MGW. The signaling link is configured under MGW.

 Logically, PCM circuit between iBSC and CN is logically managed by


MSCServer. Therefore, N7PCM should be configured under MSCServer.

 There is no service link between iBSC and MGW, thus SSF254 (BSSAP) is not
required to be configured under MGW.

 Two office routes should be configured, one of which to MGW, and the other to
MSCServer.

1. Configure Local office.

2. Configure Local No.7 SSN 0, 1 and 254. SSN is used to manage the users based
on SCCP protocol. 0 and 1 are for SCCP management, and 254 for BSSAP
management.

3. Configure Adjacent office 1. Office type should be set as MGW and AM as AM


SURE. Other parameters including SSF, SPC type, DPC should be consistent
with CN.

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 9


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

4. Configure the MGW No.7 SSN 0 and 1.

5. Configure Adjacent office 2. Office type should be set as MSCSERVER and


AM as AM QUASI. Other parameters including SSF, SPC type, DPC should be
consistent with CN.

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 10


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

6. Configure the MSCServer No.7 SSN 0, 1 and 254.

7. Configure the MSCServer N7PCM.

8. Configure MGW signaling link set, which consists of several signaling links.
Usually one link set is enough for the connection to an adjacent office.

9. Configure the MGW No.7 link. Designate PCM, TS, CMP module, and Link
code SLC.

10. Configure the No.7 route. The No.7 route specifies the link set to transmit
signaling. At most two link sets are available. Adjacent Office ID refers to the
office of the link set. Because the link set is configured under MGW, the office ID
of MGW and the link set under MGW should be selected.

11. Configure the No.7 office route to MGW. Select the No.7 route configured in
Procedure 10.

12.1.2.2 Networking Mode 2

iBSC is associated with MGW only. CN provides the signaling point for MGW. The
networking topology is as follows:

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 13


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

MSC
iBSC MGW
Server

A interface MC interface

In the form of IP (Sigtran), the signaling goes through MGW and MSCServer via MC
interface. The transmission between MGW and MSCServer is not controlled by iBSC.
Therefore, MGW and MSCServer can be viewed as a whole. iBSC data configuration
is the same as 2G MSC interconnection.

This networking mode is widely adopted.

12.1.2.3 Networking Mode 3

iBSC is associated with both MGW and MSCServer. CN provides the signaling point
for MSCServer. The networking topology is as follows:

er elay
Voic MGW
iBSC
A in te MSC
r face Server

iBSC has physical connection with both MGW and MSCServer. Because 3G CN
separates voice processing and bearing, the signaling link is connected to MSCServer
while the voice relay is connected to MGW. And because no signaling is transferred to
MGW, MGW and MSCServer can be viewed as a whole too. iBSC data configuration
is the same as 2G MSC interconnection.

The only difference is that although the voice trunk circuit to MSCServer is configured
as No.7 PCM, only the signaling is transferred. In actual operation, the users may
consult the CN and set the NO.7 PCM number of MGW trunk circuit from 0 (or 1),
and set the NO.7 PCM number of MSCServer trunk circuit from large numbers such as
512.

1.1 Preparations for Interconnection


Make sure the follow work is done before A-interface interconnection:

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 14


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

1. Installation and debugging of iBSC has been finished. All boards can run
normally.

2. Installation and debugging of the server is done.

3. MSC runs normally and the A-interface data configuration is done.

4. Transmission between iBSC and MSC is normal.

5. Related data for A-interface interconnection has been obtained from MSC.

1.2 Interconnection Data


To guarantee a successful interconnection, the data should be adjusted at both sides of
A interface and MSC until both configurations are consistent.

 MSC signaling point: 14-digit signaling point code (decimal, 3-8-3


format) or 24-digit signaling point code

 iBSC signaling point: 14-digit signaling point code (decimal, 3-8-3


format) or 24-digit signaling point code

 PCM number of A interface

 CIC

 SS7 link TS (time slot)

 SLC (SS7 link code)

 E1 number for SS7 link

 Link error connection method: usually the basic error correction


method

 Type of signaling link group: usually the 64K narrowband signaling


link group

 Frame format of E1 interface

 SSF (sub-service field)

1.3 Validity Check on Interconnection Data


1. Signaling Point Code

If the signaling point is unreachable, the reason is usually improper division of

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 15


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

signaling point. The 14-digit signaling point code of BSC is in the decimal 3-8-
3 format. However, different vendors may have different division methods,
such as the 6-8 format and the 7-7 format. The signaling point data given by
MSC are usually the data after the division. For example, the MSC may give a
signaling point 18-50. It is not the decimal number 1850. If MSC adopts the 7-
7 format, the signaling point is 1+38+2 (decimal, 3-8-3 format). If MSC adopts
the 6-8 format, the signaling point is 2+70+2 (decimal, 3-8-3 format. Pay
attention to its difference with BSCV2 decimal 4658 format). Therefore, the
users should first know how MSC divides the signaling point code to guarantee
consistent binary codes at both sides.

Algorithm:

The decimal 18 is the binary 10010, and 0010010 as a 7-digit binary number.

The decimal 50 is the binary 110010, and 0110010 as a 7-digit binary number.

Therefore, the decimal number 18-50 corresponds to the binary 0010010-


0110010, which is 1+38+2 (decimal, 3-8-3 format. Pay attention to its
difference with BSCV2 decimal 2354 format). Other division algorithms such
as the 6-8 format are not detailed here.

Every signaling message at the A interface has a signaling point code and it can
be viewed by tracked signaling. The signaling point code is hexadecimal. If the
tracked signaling has the testing and maintenance messages on the uplink and
downlink signaling network, it indicates BSC and MSC have correct signaling
point configurations.

2. Type of Signaling Point

The type of signaling points should meet the following requirements: in


ZXG10 iOMCR, BSC is set as 1 (SEP: signaling end point), MSC is set as 3
(STEP: signaling transfer end point).

3. Signaling Link Code

Usually SLC starts coding from 0 and the signaling TS are usually at TS16.
However, not all the vendors set TS16 as the default MSC signaling TS and the
users should pay attention to it.

4. Network Type

ITU-T CCSS7 has 4 types of NI (network identification): 00 IN (international

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 16


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

network, 24-digit), 01 INS (international standby network, 14-digit), 10 NI


(national network, 24-digit) and 11 NIS (national standby network, 14-digit).

The SIO (service information octet) SSF contains the 2-bit NI (network
identification) of 00/01/10/11, respectively representing international network
(international active), international standby network, national network (national
active), and national standby network. The content of SIO SSF is national
active 1000 or national standby 1100.

For the MSC interconnection, the domestic network types are mostly NIS
(national standby, 14-digit). But the international network types are mostly NI
(national active). If MSC and BSC have different network type configurations,
the following signaling message will show repeatedly:

Signaling network testing and maintenance message

Unknown A message (unknown A-interface message)

5. Subsystem Status Enquiry

Query R_N7SSN STATUS bits and make sure all the STATUS bits are 0.

6. Frame Format of E1 Interface and SPB/DTB Impedance Settings

(1) Frame Format of E1 Interface

The default frame format is usually the double-frame format. Currently,


DTB/SPB can support multi-frame CRC check format. Non-framing format
can be provided for the future.

(2) DTB/SPB Transmission Impedance Settings

The default transmission impedance of DTB/SPB is 75 ohm. However, the


international field widely uses the 120-ohm wire (twisted pair). Inconsistent
impedances may cause failed connection at A interface or frequent transient
link disconnections.

7. Clock Sync Extraction Position

Currently, ZXG10 iBSC extracts clock from the first E1 of SPB.

8. Configuration of Local NO.7 SSN

Configure the local office and adjacent office with the signaling subsystem
number 0, 1 and 254. The subsystem ID bit usually represents a signal

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION. 17


ZXG10 iBSC (V6.20) Engineering Commissioning Guide Internal Use Only▲

subsystem. The direction number of the local office is usually set as 0 and that
of the adjacent office is set according to the actual data configuration. Other
parameters are set by default.

9. Link Error Correction Method

Usually the basic error correction method is adopted.

10. Type of Signaling Link Group

Usually the 64K narrowband signaling link group is adopted.

1.4 SCN SS7 A-interface Data Configuration

Link error calibration method
Type & Range Basic, PCR
Unit None
Default Value Basic
This parameter decides the link error calibration method and it should be set
in compliance with the operator’s requirements and link transmission delay.
 Basic: It is a non-compel method of positive/negative
acknowledgement, retransmission and correction. It can ensure that in
normal status the signal units are transferred correctly, in sequence and non-
repeatedly and in abnormal status it can control retransmission and make
calibrations.
 PCR (preventive cyclic retransmission): It is a non-compel method of
Description
positive acknowledgement, cyclic retransmission and correction. If there are
no new signal units or link units for transmission, the system will
automatically resend the signal units that are stored in the retransmission
buffer and haven’t got positive acknowledgements, that is, PCR. If there are
new signal units, the system will stop cyclic retransmission and give priority
to new unit transmission.
Generally speaking, Basic error calibration method is adopted for
transmission delays less than 15ms, and PCR is for delays over 15ms.

1.5 Check after Interconnection

1.5.1 Check Signaling and Traffic Load

Traffic load of speech TCH at A interface is smaller than 0.7 Erlang/CIC Timeslot;

The incoming signaling load of CCSS7 link is smaller than 0.2 Erlang/Link;

And the outgoing signaling load of CCSS7 link is smaller than 0.2 Erlang/Link.

1.5.2 Observe Foreground Board Status

1. Observe the DTB indicator

If the E1 indicator flashes quickly, it indicates the DTB can receive MSC
signals.

If the E1 indicator doesn’t flash, the transmission should be checked. Locate


the disconnected transmission by link-by-link self-loop.

2. Observe the SPB indicator

If it flashes quickly, it indicates the signaling is normal.

If it flashes slowly, check if the SS7 data configuration is consistent with that
of MSC.

1.5.3 Observe Background Alarm

Access the main interface of the client and select Faulty Management →
Management View.

1. Check if there is PCM alarm in DTB and SPB, which are connected to
the A interface.

2. Query iBSC alarms for unreachable signaling points or SS7 L3 alarms.

If there are, it means signaling at the two ends has problems and needs further
check.

1.5.4 Observe by Signalling Tracking

Access the signalling tracking interface of the client, open the configuration box, and
select A interface and the SS7 link to be tracked.
