baseband processing and radio interface unit ver. b (BBBIb) and BBBI.
Each BBBIb or BBBI serves a maximum of 200 active mobile stations (MSs) for
each sector carrier in partial usage of subchannels (PUSC) with all subchannels mode
when the bandwidth is 10 MHz. 70% of the active MSs are configured with one pair
of best effort (BE) service flows and the remaining 30% with one pair of BE service
flows and one pair of extended real-time polling service (ertPS) flows.

The long-term evolution baseband processing unit version c (LBBPc) has been added in
DBS3900 WiMAX V300R003C01. Each LBBPc serves a maximum of 256 active MSs
for each sector carrier in PUSC with all subchannels mode when the bandwidth is 10
MHz. 70% of the active MSs are configured with one pair of BE service flows, and the
remaining 30% with one pair of BE service flows and one pair of ertPS service flows.

Compared with V300R002C03, V300R003C01 has a higher peak throughput. The


downlink (DL) peak throughput of one sector carrier reaches 31.41 Mbit/s with multipleinput multiple-output (MIMO) Matrix B enabled, and the uplink (UL) peak throughput
of one sector carrier reaches 9 Mbit/s with UL collaborative spatial multiplexing (CSM)
or space division multiple access (SDMA) enabled

The DL-to-UL subframe ratio is 29:18 in PUSC with all subchannels mode.

The bandwidth is 10 MHz.

pairs of service flows for each sector carrier when two sector carriers are configured in
PUSC with all subchannels mode and the bandwidth is 10 MHz.

The DL peak throughput of one sector carrier reaches 31.41 Mbit/s with MIMO Matrix B
enabled, and the UL peak throughput of one sector carrier reaches 9 Mbit/s with UL
CSM enabled

The DL-to-UL subframe ratio is 29:18 in PUSC with all subchannels mode.

The bandwidth is 10 MHz.

BTS3701B

The BTS3701B supports only one sector carrier.

Each BTS3701B serves a maximum of 100 active MSs and supports a maximum of 100
pairs of service flows in PUSC with all subchannels mode when the bandwidth is 10
MHz.

The DL peak throughput of one sector carrier reaches 31.41 Mbit/s with MIMO Matrix B
enabled, and the UL peak throughput of one sector carrier reaches 9 Mbit/s with UL
CSM or SDMA enabled

The DL-to-UL subframe ratio is 29:18 in PUSC with all subchannels mode.

The bandwidth is 10 MHz.

1.1.2 Network Performance


Network performance is optimized as follows:

The use of DL enhanced fractional frequency reuse (EFFR), UL EFFR, and DL power
control balances interference across sectors, and increases sector throughput in intrafrequency mode.

Beamforming is introduced to increase DL throughput.

Loads and BE satisfaction are better balanced among carriers in multi-carrier mode.

The following parameters are added to the DSP ALLMSINFO


command:

ULPER

NI

DLDATARATE

ULDATARATE

You can run this command to query MS signal quality in real time.
Trial license

A trial license enables you to use a function for free for a trial
period, and helps you decide whether to purchase the function. A
trial license does not affect other functions for which licenses have
been purchased. The default trial period is three months.

WCS

In V300R003C01, you can preset the time for a golden check. The
system automatically checks benchmark parameters as scheduled.

Template-based and clone-based site deployment wizards are


added.

Neighboring cell parameters and radio parameters can be modified


in batches on the WCS.

A notification message is displayed when you attempt to modify a


cold parameter. After a cold parameter is modified, you must
block carriers to make for modification to take effect.

A site capacity expansion wizard is added to facilitate capacity


expansion.

Access to BS configuration data is controlled. After the M2000 is


upgraded, existing permissions to access BS configuration data are
revoked by default.

Soft-commissioning tasks and DHCP data are automatically


created when site deployment configuration scripts are generated.

The M2000 provides a northbound interface for BTS


configuration data, which is required for site deployment.

Tracing items

IEEE P1588 protocol and view collected information in real time on
the GUI.
Only the BTS3702C and BTS3701B support this function.

Alarm correlation

This function decreases the number of alarms that are reported. It


also enables you to identify the root causes of alarms, which
facilitates alarm clearance.

Control over LMTbased manual alarm


clearance

You can run an MML command to disable LMT-based manual alarm


clearance. This prevents site engineers from manually clearing these
alarms.

To simulate UL interference caused when a large number of MSs


enter neighboring cells, you can generate interference noises on the
BS UL channel by running an MML command.
This function is used to test and assess network performance when
interference occurs on the UL.

Engineering quality
self-check

The Web LMT provides the engineering quality self-check as a


routine health check item. This self-check consists of subitems
related to engineering quality, including global positioning system
(GPS) satellite locking, antenna standing-wave ratio (SWR), and
optical port power. The check results indicate whether a BS passes
the check and also contain check criteria and related MML
command execution results. This facilitates fault analysis and
location.

Enhanced software
upgrade

You can upgrade BS software and install cold and hot patches
simultaneously on the M2000.

BS software packages are compressed more efficiently. As a


result, downloaded and activated more quickly.

BS BootROM software can be upgraded automatically during a


BS upgrade.

Version rollback can be performed if necessary after a hot patch is


installed.

In addition to CPU hot patches, secondary core hot patches and


DSP hot patches can be installed on a BS.

Impacts of V300R003C01 Functions on


V300R002C03

3.1 Enhanced Multi-Carrier Load Balancing


3.1.1 Description
Multi-carrier load balancing is supported in versions earlier than V300R003C01. In
V300R003C01, due to the differences of network coverage between carriers, this function is
optimized as follows:

Load balancing handovers from an outer carrier to an inner carrier are supported. The
thresholds for starting and stopping this type of handover are lower than those for
starting and stopping the original load balancing handovers. MSs are highly likely to
enter the network over an outer carrier with optimal signal quality. If this happens, the
outer carrier load is heavy. This function decreases the load on the outer carrier, and
improves the network entry success rate.

The existing algorithms for load balancing handovers and BE satisfaction balancing
handovers are optimized. Now, cell edge MSs can be handed over to neighboring sectors
and central MSs to other carriers in the same sector.
The algorithm optimization ensures that load balancing handovers are performed in a
timely manner. It also improves the handover success rate and balances loads and BE
satisfaction across carriers on a multi-carrier network.

3.1.2 Capacity and Performance


System Capacity
Enhanced multi-carrier load balancing ensures that loads and BE satisfaction are balanced
among carriers on a multi-carrier network, and BSs can serve more MSs and carry more
service flows as a result as well.

Network Performance
The possibility of BS overloads decreases, and the network entry success rate increases.

the central band to use all of the frequency resources. This expands network coverage and
improves sector capacity.
In V300C003C00, UL EFFR without extended bands was introduced.
In V300R003C01, UL EFFR allows the use of the extended band.
In V300R003C01, the first zone in a UL subframe is a PUSC with all subchannels zone. It is
divided into a UL common band and a UL extended band. The UL common band occupies the
same sub-band as the edge band in the second zone, and the extended band occupies the same
sub-band as the central band in the second zone. MSs can be scheduled for the extended band
to improve UL spectral efficiency.

3.2.6 Other NEs


The MS must support the division of a UL subframe into two zones. If the first UL zone is a
PUSC with all subchannels zone, the MS must automatically identify and skip the common
band, or the MS allows the BS to specify the start of the extended band using OFDMA
symbol offset and Subchannel offset in the UL Allocation Start IE or HARQ UL-MAP IE.

3.2.7 Other Features


UL EFFR and UL CSM cannot be in the active state simultaneously, but UL EFFR and UL
SDMA can.

3.3 DL EFFR
3.3.1 Description
DL EFFR is a key technology in intra-frequency networking mode. When DL EFFR is
enabled, sector coverage is close to that in PUSC with 1/3 subchannels mode, and timefrequency resources are effectively used. This improves spectral efficiency.
Similar to DL FFR, DL EFFR divides a subframe into a PUSC with partial subchannels zone
and a PUSC with all subchannels zone. The PUSC with partial subchannels zone can be a
PUSC with 1/2 subchannels zone or a PUSC with 1/3 subchannels zone. The PUSC with all
subchannels zone has a fixed boundary, and all sectors are aligned along the boundary. This
reduces interference between the edge areas of neighboring sectors.
In the PUSC with partial subchannels zone, subchannel power is high. Subchannels in PUSC
with partial subchannels zones in neighboring sectors do not overlap. This type of zone serves
cell edge MSs on the UL common channel.
In the PUSC with all subchannels zone, subchannel power is low. This type of zone serves
cell center MSs. Figure 1.1 shows the subframe structure.

When UL SDMA is enabled, the spatial multiplexing technology allows multiple MSs to use
the same UL time-frequency resources. This increases UL throughput over the air interface.
The BS allows single-transmit-antenna MSs to use SDMA in the UL PUSC zone. The BS
selects the MSs based on the measurement results on the physical layer (PHY) and the
information reported by the MSs.
SDMA gain is obtained by multiplexing UL time-frequency resources, as shown in Figure 1.1.

3.5 Interference Countermeasures


3.5.1 Description
TDD interference occurs between two distant BSs when the latency exceeds the transmit
transition gap (TTG).
To prevent TDD interference, Interference countermeasures are introduced and BSs perform
the following operations:
1.

Measures the NI of the UL common band to detect interference

2.

Reports an alarm if interference is detected

3.

Scans the preamble to locate interference sources

4.

Reserves the last symbols of the DL frame to cancel interference between BSs, or
configures a safety zone in the front of the UL common band to prevent interference

3.5.2 Capacity and Performance

Cleared

Number of times there is no interference in the first three


symbols in the uplink safety zone within a measurement

Fault Management

The BS reports an interference alarm upon detecting that the difference between the
common band NI and the data region NI exceeds the value of the ULNIDETECTTH
parameter or that the absolute value of the common band NI is higher than the specified
threshold.

The BS clears the interference alarm upon detecting that the difference between the
safety zone NI and the data region NI is smaller than the value of the
ULNIDETECTTH parameter.

3.5.6 Other NEs


The MS must allow adding of a safety zone before the common band.

3.5.7 Other Features

Preamble scanning has higher priority than any other functions such as reverse spectral
scanning. Therefore, other commands are terminated when they conflict with the STR
PREAMBLESCAN command.

Interference on the UL common band increases if UL EFFR is enabled and safety zones
are configured. Therefore, enable IRC to maintain UL EFFR performance.

3.6 DL Power Control


3.6.1 Description
When DL power control is enabled, a lower-level MCS is used and the DL transmit power of
some MSs is decreased to reduce intra-frequency interference between BSs without affecting
the MS quality of service (QoS) performance.
To maintain sector throughput, MCS levels can be reduced only when the DL load is light.

3.6.7 Other Features

3.7 MCS Level Selection Optimized When IRC Is Enabled


3.7.1 Description
When IRC is enabled, the BS measures the post-processing carrier-to-interference-and-noise
ratio (CINR) after the pre-processing CINR measurement. The pre-processing CINR is
obtained at the baseband antenna port after linear combination, and the post-processing CINR
is obtained after maximum ratio combining (MRC) or IRC self-adaptation.
In versions earlier than V300R003C01, only the pre-processing CINR is used to determine
MCS levels. As a result, the CINR does not improve after IRC is enabled.
In V300R003C01, the BS dynamically determines the UL receiving mode based on preprocessing and post-processing CINRs on the MS. This maximizes UL link spectral
efficiency.
This function defines three UL receiving modes:

Single-stream mode: CSM and SDMA are disabled, and the BS determines the MCS
level based on the pre-processing CINR. This ensures link reliability and normal service
running when the radio conditions are poor.

Single-stream enhanced mode: CSM and SDMA are disabled, and the BS determines the
MCS level based on the post-processing CINR. Compared with single-stream mode, this
mode improves spectral efficiency and link availability when there is interference.

CSM-SDMA mode: CSM or SDMA is enabled, and space multiplexing is used. This
mode uses the pre-processing CINR to determine the MCS level. Compared with singlestream mode, CSM-SDMA mode doubles spectral efficiency in optimal channel
conditions.

The BS selects the optimal UL receiving mode that can maximize spectral efficiency.

3.7.2 Capacity and Performance


System Capacity
This function helps increase UL throughput when interference is strong.

Network Performance
This function helps increase MS UL throughput when interference is strong.

3.7.3 Hardware
This function cannot be used on the BTS3702C, because it does not support IRC.

3.8 UL SBC-REQ Coverage Optimized


3.8.1 Description
The SBC-REQ message used during MS network entry is large in size, and cannot be
segmented. Three subchannels are used to transmit the SBC-REQ message, which increases
the possibility of transmission failures. This decreases UL network coverage and reduces the
network entry success rate.
In V300R003C01, a BS sends an MS the SBC-RSP message containing the minimum
capability set attribute if it does not receive an SBC-REQ message from the MS. This helps
expand BS coverage.

3.9 Air Interface Synchronization Clock System


3.9.1 Description
This function is applicable to indoor coverage where Global Positioning System (GPS) clock
synchronization usually fails due to weak indoor GPS signals. Preamble signals travel over a
longer distance than broadcast signals and service signals do in a WiMAX BS. The air
interface synchronization clock system enables a BS to demodulate preamble signals sent
from neighboring BSs to obtain a synchronization clock source. Then, the BS synchronizes its
time and frequency with those of a neighboring BS. This function achieves clock
synchronization in indoor coverage at a low cost.

3.9.2 Capacity and Performance


System Capacity
Throughput decreases by less than 3%, because several data frames are not used for data
transmission periodically over the air interface when the BTS3701B is receiving preamble
signals from the clock source.

neighboring BSs. Therefore, fast ranging is not supported when this function is enabled.

3.10 HARQ Category 5 and Category 6


3.10.1 Description
In V300R003C01, HARQ category 5 and category 6 are introduced to increase singlesubscriber peak throughput on the UL and DL.
Compared with HARQ category 4, HARQ category 5 increases the DL buffering size and the
number of UL HARQ channels, and therefore UL and DL throughput improves. Compared
with HARQ category 5, HARQ category 6 increases the UL buffering size and further
improves UL peak throughput.

3.13 Enhanced Assignment


3.13.1 Description
In V300R002C03, assignment is supported between intra-sector carriers. After this function is
enabled, the BS assigns an MS to enter the network through another intra-sector carrier if both
of the following conditions are met:

The MS fails to enter the network through a carrier, because the load is greater than the
network entry threshold.

The load of the intra-sector carrier whose network the MS attempts to enter is less than
the network entry threshold.

In V300R003C01, assignment can be performed between sectors or between BSs. If the load
of all intra-sector carriers is greater than the network entry threshold, the BS assigns an MS to
the network through another intra-BS sector or a neighboring BS.

Description

Inter-Sector RoundRobin Assignment Times

Times of successful inter-sector round-robin assignment


initiated when the BS determines admission within the
measurement period. This measurement counter is used to
discriminate intra-sector round-robin assignment times from
inter-sector round-robin assignment times.

Times of Admission
Assignment in Initial
Network Entry

Times of successful admission assignment when assignment is


implemented due to MS admission failure in initial network
entry. This measurement counter reflects the times of
successful inter-frequency assignment implemented when the
load reaches its threshold in MS initial network entry on a
sector carrier. In this way, you can find out whether the MS
network entry is affected by the load of the sector carrier.

Times of Admission
Assignment in Network
Re-Entry After Idle Mode

Times of successful admission assignment when assignment is


implemented due to MS admission failure in network re-entry
after the idle mode. This measurement counter reflects the
times of successful inter-frequency assignment implemented
when the load reaches its threshold in MS network re-entry
after the idle mode on a sector carrier. In this way, you can find
out whether the load of the sector carrier affects MS network
re-entry after the idle mode.

3.14 Inter-User QoS


3.14.1 Description
There are four subscriber classes in Huawei WiMAX system: gold, silver, bronze, and
common. Using different subscriber classes allows you to provide differentiated services for
subscriber classes based on their priorities, which ensures service quality for high-priority
MSs.
Inter-user QoS polices are implemented as follows:

For network entry, high-priority MSs preempt bandwidth resources allocated to lowpriority online MSs if BS bandwidth resources are insufficient. This increases the
network entry success rate of high-priority MSs.

Low-priority MSs are preferentially selected for a load balancing handover or for data
rate reduction.

High-priority MSs are preferentially selected for service scheduling.

3.14.2 Capacity and Performance


System Capacity
There is no impact on system capacity.

Network Performance
This function improves the service experience of high-priority MSs, but may affect service
experience of low-priority MSs if the BS load is heavy.

Data Configuration
The NWGVERSION parameter is added to the following commands:

MOD SIGENHCFG

LST SIGENHCFG

The NWGVERSION parameter can be set to one of the following values:

PRE_12: The BS uses the R6 interface based on the NWG R1.0.

NWG_12: The BS uses the R6 interface based on the NWG R1.2.

NWG_13: The BS uses the R6 interface based on the NWG R1.3.

AUTO: The BS uses the R6 interface based on the NWG R1.2 or R1.3, which is
determined in the first message that the ASN-GW sends to the BS over the R6 interface
during MS network entry. In the message header, if S bit is set to 1, the R6 interface
complies with the NWG R1.3, and if S bit is set to 0, the R6 interface complies with the
NWG R1.2 or earlier.

For a new BS of V300C003C01, the default value of the NWGVERSION parameter is


AUTO.
For a BS upgraded from V300C002C03 to V300C003C01, the R6 interface is used based on
the same NWG version as that used before the upgrade. This ensures that the R6 interfaces on
the BS and the ASN-GW complies with the same NWG protocol.
