Technical overview of UltraSite EDGE BTS
Uplink and downlink signalling
In the uplink path, the BTS receives signals from the MS. In the downlink path,
the BTS sends signals to the MS. Uplink and downlink signals travel through the
Air interface on different frequencies, with the higher frequency carrying
downlink signals.
The uplink signal path involves the following actions:
.
The antenna picks up a signal from the MS through the Air interface.
.
The antenna passes the signal to the optional Masthead Amplifier (MNxx)
and Bias Tee (BPxx) units or to the optional Dual Band Diplex Filter
(DU2A) unit.
.
The signal passes through either the Dual Variable Gain Duplex Filter
(DVxx) or Remote Tune Combiner (RTxx) unit to the Receiver
Multicoupler (M2xA or M6xA) and Transceiver RF (TSxx) units.
.
The Transceiver module (TRX) on the TSxx unit converts the received
signal to Intermediate Frequency (IF) levels and filters the signal.
.
The TSxx unit then sends the signal to the Transceiver Baseband (BB2x)
unit for digital signal processing.
.
The BB2x unit sends the processed signal to the Transmission (VXxx)
unit, which transmits the signal to the BSC utilizing standard transmission
technologies.
The downlink signal path involves the following actions:
.
The BSC receives a signal from the core network and sends the signal to
the VXxx unit using standard transmission technologies.
.
The VXxx passes the signal to the BB2x unit for digital signal processing.
.
The BB2x unit sends the processed signal to the TSxx unit.
.
The TRX module on the TSxx unit filters the signal, raises it to the carrier
frequency, and amplifies it.
.
The TSxx unit then sends the signal either to the RTxx unit or through the
optional Wideband Combiner (WCxA) unit to the DVxx unit.
.
The DVxx or RTxx unit sends the signal through either the optional DU2A
unit or the BPxx and MNxx units to the antenna, which passes the signal
through the Air interface to the MS.

repeater and interconnects Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS cabinets and the BSC
using loop, chain, star, and point-to-point network configurations. Each FlexBus
interface has a capacity of up to 16 x 2M, dependent on the capacity of the
microwave link and if the FlexBus is used for direct interconnection to a different
FlexBus interface.
FXC E1 or FXC E1/T1 or FC E1/T1 unit
With four wireline connections per unit (E1 has 2Mbit/s capacity, and T1 has 1.5
Mbit/s capacity), the FXC E1 or FXC E1/T1 unit operates as a branching point
and interconnects Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS cabinets and the BSC using the
loop, chain, star, and point-to-point network configurations. With up to four FXC
E1 or FXC E1/T1 units per cabinet, a single cabinet supports a maximum of 16
wireline connections. The FC E1/T1 unit can be used as a termination point in a
chain, star, or point-to-point network configuration. Because it has one wireline
connection, only one FC E1/T1 unit per BTS cabinet is supported. And, it is not
possible to deploy FXC units together with the FC E1/T1 unit.
FXC STM-1 and FXC Bridge transmission units
The FXC STM-1 and FXC Bridge transmission units allow cross connections
between PDH (Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy) and SDH (Synchronous Digital
Hierarchy) transmission rates. The units work together to form a complete SDH
STM-1 terminal multiplexer (TM) or add-drop multiplexer (ADM) node inside
Nokia base stations or Nokia MetroHub transmission nodes. FXC STM-1
performs the main SDH functions, whereas the FXC Bridge forms a bridge for
the signals between the SDH part and the PDH cross-connect part of the node.
The two units are always used together.
Co-located Nokia Talk-family
A co-located Nokia Talk-family BTS can connect to Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS
using the integrated E1/T1 interface or Flexbus. During the upgrade phase, the
Nokia Talk-family transmission interface to the BSC can provide the Abis
capacity for the Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS. This configuration, however, limits
the capacity and expandability of the BTS. Therefore, it is recommended that the
Abis capacity for the Nokia Talk BTS is connected through the Nokia Ultrasite
EDGE BTS transmission Hub.

Technical overview of UltraSite EDGE BTS
Cross-connections
The BTS integrated transmission Hub does provide the cross-connect
functionality and granularities necessary to create a transmission network that
supports the specific needs of GSM/EDGE. The maximum DXC capacity of the
BTS integrated transmission Hub is 56 x 2 Mbit/s. Various cross-connection
granularities are supported down to a level of 8kbit/s. 16kbit/s cross connects can
be used, for example, to cross-connect the BTS signalling links or BTS O&M
channels when the bandwidth is 16kbit/s.
Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS can handle the following cross-connection
granularities:
.
8k (1 bit in a time slot)
.
16K (2 bits in a time slot)
.
32K (4 bits in a time slot)
.
64K (all 8 bits in a time slot)
.
n x 64k
.
2M
Note
All 2Mbit/s interfaces are terminated, which means that TS0 is not cross
connected but regenerated. Only the 2Mbit/s cross-connections that are made
from FlexBus to FlexBus inside one FXC RRI are transparent.
Note
VC-12 is a virtual container inside VC-4 with a capacity of 2 Mbit/s.
Protection
The BTS-integrated transmission Hub supports protection functions against
transmission problems, such as cable cuts, equipment faults, or fading radio links:

Transmission network protection using loop topology
Nokia loop protection is an efficient way to protect traffic in a transmission
network, such as a GSM BSS. In a live telecommunication network, it is
important to secure, in addition to actual payload traffic, the network
synchronisation and the centralised network management during any period of
abnormal circumstances.
For these reasons, Nokia loop protection protects:
.
Payload traffic
.
Network synchronisation
.
Network management connections
Hot Stand By (HSB)
HSB is a method of equipment redundancy in which two radio transmitters are
kept ready (switched on), so that if one fails, the other one immediately picks up
where the first one left off.
In single use, the signal is not protected against equipment or propagation faults.
In the event of a fault, the connection remains broken until the equipment fault is
repaired or the cause for the propagation fault vanishes. HSB provides protection
against equipment faults.

Lazy transmitter changeover
Lazy transmitter changeover is a protection method against transmitter faults that
cannot be detected by the equipment itself, for example, a faulty antenna. The
FXC RRI unit sends periodic notifications to the far-end about the radio signal
quality. Lazy transmitter changeover is performed, if there are errors in the
transmitted data over a specified time interval that are caused by the near-end
transmitter.

UltraSite EDGE BTS Product Description
2.14.1.1 Combining options
Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS supports various combining options. You can
configure Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS in the following ways:
.
Combining Bypass - No signal combining is used.
.
Wideband Combining (WBC)
- 2-Way WBC - Signals from two TSxx units are combined into one
antenna using one WCxA unit.
- 4-Way WBC - Signals from four TSxx units are combined into one
antenna using two parallel WCxA units in series and a single WCxA
unit.
.
Remote Tune Combining (RTC)
- Signals from six TSxx units are combined into one antenna with one
RTxx unit.
- Signals from twelve TSxx units are combined into two antennas (a
separate antenna for RX diversity is unnecessary). Two RTxx units
are needed.
.
Dual Band Combining (GSM 800/1900 or 900/1800 in the same cabinet)
- Use any WBC or RTC combining option within each band.
- DU2x combines RX/TX signals into one antenna (optional).
.
Horizontal Sectoring (combining signals from different cabinets)
- Use any WBC or RTC combining option.
2.14.1.2 Cabinet configurations
To accomplish these combining options, Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS supports
various cabinet configurations.
Various cabinet combining configurations include:
.
1+1+1, DVxx, Combining bypass
.

3.14 Technical description of UltraSite EDGE BTS co-
siting with Talk-family RF diversity kits
An RF diversity cable kit allows antenna sharing between an existing Talk-family
BTS and an UltraSite EDGE BTS. The UTAA cable kit (468790A) is the basic RF
diversity kit that is used with all co-siting configurations. Depending on the
configuration, up to three UTAA cable kits may be required.
Some configurations require the use of splitter kits. There are two different kits
available: SPKA and RSKA. SPKA is used in splitting RF diversity cabling
between UltraSite DVxx - M2xA, UltraSite M2xA - Talk TRX, and Talk RMU/
AFE - UltraSite TRX. RSKA is used between RTC and RMU in Talk-family
BTS.
Following is a general illustration of diversity sharing cable connections in a
Talk-family cabinet. The Citytalk BTS is used for depiction purposes.

5 Configurations for UltraSite EDGE BTS
5.1 Overview of configurations for UltraSite EDGE BTS
The choice of network configuration depends mainly on the requirements for
transmission media and availability. The loop network configuration is the most
reliable, providing excellent protection against equipment failures and radio-link
fading.
Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS directly supports all network configurationsloop,
chain, star, point-to-point, and mesh. Separate transmission nodes are
unnecessary, because the Nokia UltraSite EDGE BTS cabinet can hold up to four
integrated transmission units.
Each BTS cabinet uses the FXC transmission units to add or drop capacity to
other sites. The integrated transmission can groom traffic and serve as a PDHloop
master. Cross-connections to 8 k granularity and grooming at the BTS further
optimise transmission capacity.

5.5 Overview of configurations for Nokia ITN
ITN is the abbreviation for Integrated Transmission Node. It is a synonym for the
use of FXC transmission units within Nokia BTSs and Nokia MetroHub, as the
same FXC units are used within these products to build a transmission node. With
ITN units deployed in a BTS hub, chain and tail sites can be supported without
additional cabling and a site support cabinet, which would be necessary if an
external third party transmission node were used. MetroHub is well integrated
into a consistent transmission network solution for radio access networks, as it
uses the same ITN units. Further, it is also possible to chain MetroHub to a Nokia
BTS for providing a cost-efficient branching solution for micro-BTS sites.
Taking a few capacity limitations into account, flexible node configurations can
be created with ITN that serve the diverse needs of the operator within radio
access networks:
.
There can be only one FXC Bridge and FXC STM-1 unit per cabinet.
.
FXC Bridge and FXC STM-1 units are always used together.
.
The FXC RRI unit has a maximum add/drop capacity towards the cross-
connection bus of 16 x 2M, when the unit is used as the node master unit
(left most slot position) or as a slave unit.
- When FXC RRI is being used as the master unit within a BTS
transmission Hub, the add/drop capacity is 13 x 2M.
- When FXC RRI is being used as the master unit within a MetroHub,
which is chained to a BTS, the add/drop capacity is 15 x 2M.
.
The FXC STM-1/FXC Bridge units provide an add/drop capacity towards
the cross-connection bus of 20 x 2M.
5.6 Example site configuration: with SDH transmission
One of the easiest and most cost efficient solutions to enhance the coverage and
expand the network is branching. Branching means add/dropping digital
transmission channels to other transmission paths in chain and tree networks.
With FXC STM-1 and FXC Bridge an SDH solution is provided for connecting a
base station (BTS) to optical fibre and for the branching of PDH lines. In
branching, specific VC-12 channels are separated from the STM-1 frame signal
and used for generating a new E1/Flexbus frame for the subsidiary branch.

6.2 Technical description of transmission capacity
expansion
In addition to being transmission nodes, the BTS transmission Hub or MetroHub
serve as flexible transmission capacity reserves in the network, enabling rapid
revenue growth by easy and flexible expansion of capacity with minimised
implementation time and cost.
The growing amount of traffic in the network requires flexible transmission
capacity expansion. This is accomplished by adding transmission units into the
transmission node when needed. With these transmission units, the transmission
node can be connected, for example, to eight Nokia FlexiHopper (Plus) radios,
with up to 16 x 2 Mbit/s capacity each, or to eight Nokia MetroHopper radios,
with 4 x 2 Mbit/s capacity each. The radio connections are made through a single
Flexbus cable that carries the payload and the radio power feed.

6.3 Technical description of transmission unit cross-
connections
Cross-connections define how signals are routed from an FXC transmission unit
to another transmission unit. Cross-connections are created into banks, which are
either active or inactive. The cross-connections in the active banks are in use,
whereas those in the inactive bank can be used for creating new or editing already
existing cross-connections.
The SDH cross-connection block performs cross-connections on the VC-12 level
and generation of clock and frame sync signals for the buses.
Cross-connection bus
The transmission units offer dynamic allocation and deallocation of the 56 x 2
Mbit/s cross-connection bus of MetroHub and UltraSite EDGE BTS according to
the physical interfaces that are present in the node configuration. The user can
create cross-connections between any physical interfaces connected to the cross-
connection bus.
When the first cross-connection is created to the interface, the 2M cross-
connection block is allocated to it. If there are no free blocks to be allocated, the
node gives the alarm 20 Blocked from use.
Backup
The active cross-connection bank is backed up in the transmission unit's non-
volatile memory: if the unit is removed, the cross-connections are restored when
the unit is inserted again.
Grooming
The cross-connection feature of the transmission units makes traffic grooming
possible.
dn03398222

# Nokia Corporation
Nokia Proprietary and Confidential
205 (279)
Technical description of UltraSite BTS Hub
The FXC transmission units are capable of grooming traffic at 8 kbit/s
granularity, which enables fully optimised and flexible use of the available
transmission resources. This ensures that the Abis transmission capacity can be
used efficiently.
Cross-connection granularities
There are several types of cross-connections available, and each has a different
granularity.
Granularity means the bit rate at which a cross-connection is made, that is, the
number of bits connected into a specific direction in a cross-connection. In 2
Mbit/s mode, the available granularities are:
.
8k (1 bit)
.
16k (2 bits)
.
32k (4 bits)
.
64k (all 8 bits in a time slot)
.
n x 64k
.
2M
Note
All 2 Mbit/s platform interfaces are terminated, which means that time slot 0 is
regenerated.
Note
Only 2 Mbit/s cross-connections that are made from Flexbus to Flexbus inside a
FXC RRI transmission unit are transparent.
Note
SDH cross-connections are only possible at VC-12 level granularity.

UltraSite EDGE BTS Product Description
Basic cross-connection types
The cross-connections are created into banks. The node contains two cross-
connection banks.
The transmission units support all the cross-connection types described below.
Figure 58. Basic cross-connection types supported
.
B2 bi-directional cross-connection
The B2 cross-connection is a bi-directional connection between two termination
points. The granularities are 2M, nx64k, 64k, 32k, 16k and 8k.
.
M2 bi-directional masked cross-connection
The M2 bi-directional masked cross-connection is a bi-directional connection
between two termination points. The received data stream is masked bit by bit
with fixed data. Masking can be done with a logical AND or OR operation. The
masking is made in both directions. The M2 cross-connection supports 64k, 32k
and 16k granularity.
.
D1 uni-directional fixed cross-connection
The D1 cross-connection is a uni-directional cross-connection where fixed data is
sent from the Tx port as shown in the figure above. The user sets the fixed bit
pattern used (for example: 01101101) and the time slot where the bit pattern is
transmitted. The D1 cross-connection supports 64k, 32k, 16k and 8k
granularities.

Cross-connection protection
The B2 cross-connection can be protected. Protection means that the data path
through the network element has two alternative routes. The protected bi-
directional cross-connection is called the PB2 cross-connection.
Figure 59. Protected bi-directional cross-connection
Note
Setting up a bi-directional protected cross-connection for SDH is necessary for
setting up a SNC/I+ protected VC-12 path.
When a protected bi-directional cross-connection is made, both the switch and
data duplicating cross-connections are created. Data received from the reliable
port is duplicated and sent to both the protected and protecting port. The
switching decision is made according to the incoming value of the selected
condition bits (pilot bits).
The granularities for protected cross-connections are n x 64k, 64k, 32k and 16k.
The port selection is called a switch. After creating the switch, the user must
define the switching condition. The supported conditions are priority and equal.
For more details on loop protection, see Technical description of PDH
transmission network protection using loop topology.

When any of the FXC transmission units is inserted into unit slot 1, it
automatically starts to function as the node control unit. The role of the unit is
thus only determined by the slot position. The node control unit provides a
common clock to which all other FXC units synchronise. An FXC unit must
always be used in unit slot 1 for the configuration to work.
Note
The FXC STM-1 unit cannot be used as the node control unit and it should never
be installed in slot 1.

6.5 Technical description of the synchronisation of
FXC transmission units
Synchronisation is needed to be able to make cross-connections on sub-2M level
without causing slips in transmission. It is recommended that the synchronisation
input is taken from an upper network element, typically a base station controller
(BSC) in the BSS. Also the synchronisation of base stations (BTS) in the BSS can
be done via transmission equipment. If there is an SDH transmission layer used in
the BSS, synchronisation of the SDH equipment is also needed.
Therefore an FXC node in the BSS is always synchronised to a reference
provided by the BSC. The BSC head-end transmission node is synchronised via a
2M payload signal or a 2 MHz synchronisation input from the BSC, and
distributes the synchronisation further to other network elements in the BSS. In
case of an FXC STM node, this is done via STM-1 signals.
Synchronisation functions are configured using Nokia management applications.

UltraSite EDGE BTS Product Description
Synchronisation of transmission nodes equipped with FXC (PDH) units
In a transmission node equipped with only FXC (PDH) units, all platform
interfaces can be used as a synchronisation source. The clock is selected based on
availability and priority from a four-level priority list, generated by the user
according to the current network configuration. If none of the recovered line
clocks in the priority list is available, all the FXC units are synchronised to the
internal oscillator of the node control unit.
Synchronisation of transmission nodes equipped with FXC (PDH) and FXC
STM-1 units
In a transmission node equipped with both FXC (PDH) and FXC STM-1 units,
the node clock functionality is split between the PDH node clock and the SDH
node clock. In normal operation the PDH node clock is synchronised to the SDH
node clock. The synchronisation of the BTS towards the BSC is established as the
Nokia BTSs are synchronised to the PDH node clock. If the SDH node clock is
not available (for example, due to unit fail), the FXC (PDH) node clock master
runs on its own internal oscillator.
The FXC STM-1 transmission unit supports the SDH node clock function. The
SDH node clock can be synchronised to any external STM-1 interface. If FXC
Bridge is plugged into slot 1, the SDH node clock can also be synchronised to the
first E1 signal of an FXC E1 or FXC E1/T1 unit (for exampe at a BSC head-end
site).
The SDH node clock supports three modes: locked, holdover, and free-run. In
locked mode, the SDH node clock is synchronised either to an external STM-1 or
E1 interface. In holdover mode, the SDH node clock has lost its controlling
reference input and is using stored data (acquired while in locked operation) to
control its output. In free-run mode, no synchronisation reference has been
available and the node clock master runs on its own oscillator clock.
Available synchronisation sources are chosen in the order of importance. In case
of the SDH node clock function, the highest quality source is used to synchronise
the equipment clock. If several sources of the same quality are available, the
source with the higher priority is used. For PDH node clock function, the
available reference source with the highest priority is always taken.
Note
If an E1 signal is used as the synchronisation source for a node equipped with
both FXC (PDH) and FXC STM units, the FXC Bridge unit has to be set up as
the master unit and the quality of the E1 signal must fulfil the SDH standard
although it is an PDH signal. This means that the frequency deviation of the E1
signal is only allowed to be 4.6ppm (SDH standard) instead of 50ppm (PDH
dn03398222

Technical description of UltraSite BTS Hub
standard). The 4.6ppm accuracy of the E1 signal used as reference for the SDH
node clock must be ensured by the network operator. An inaccuracy of more than
4.6ppm up to approximately 20ppm cannot be detected by the SDH node
clock function. If the inaccuracy is more than 20ppm, the node switches to the
next entry in the synchronisation list and the alarm 124 Synchronization fault in
clock recovery or 125 Loss of synchronization signal(s) is raised, although the
signal could still be in the valid PDH range of 50ppm.
Behaviour of node synchronisation in case of a frequency shift beyond 20
ppm of the SDH network reference clock
In normal operation the FXC STM node is synchronised to an STM-1 input
signal with an accuracy of 4.6 ppm towards the 155 520 KHz STM-1 reference.
In exceptional cases, for example MS-AIS, the STM-1 input signal is allowed to
have an accuracy of 20 ppm. Due to a failure of transmission equipment, the
STM-1 input signal may deviate more than 20 ppm towards the 155 520 KHz
STM-1 reference, and the signal is still used as a synchronisation source for the
node. In this case, the node switches to the next synchronisation source in the
priority list. When the quality of the network reference clock gets within a valid
range for the synchronisation source, the node automatically takes the
synchronisation source into use again. This process can take up to 11 minutes. As
long as the node is in frequency shift state, the message 'Do not use' is transmitted
as the synchronisation status message in the S1 byte of the STM multiplex section
overhead.
6.6 Technical description of Q1 management
Nokia Q1 is a Nokia proprietary management protocol and it is backwards
compatible with the currently used Q1. In this information set, Nokia Q1 is
referred to as Q1.Q1 is a polling protocol used for transferring information
between a master and a network element. Each network element in a Q1 network
has a unique Q1 address. The polling master accesses network elements using the
Q1 address. This address has to be in the range 03999. In the BSS, the BSC is
typically the polling equipment. The Q1 group address is used for broadcasting
the Q1 management messages to several pieces of equipment within the same
group. This is for future usage.These kinds of broadcasting actions could be, for
example, software downloading to several nodes simultaneously.
Nokia MetroHub is a Nokia Q1 network element. MetroHub is a single network
element with one Q1 address. Even if there are radio outdoor units connected to
an FXC RRI transmission unit, they do not have their own Q1 addresses.

UltraSite EDGE BTS Product Description
The interface unit of MetroHub provides the interfaces for local or remote
management of the equipment: LMP (local management port) and Q1. Both ports
have their own Q1 address and baud rate settings. LMP and Q1 interfaces are
independent of each other and the node can be accessed from both of the
interfaces at the same time. Two interfaces for LMP and Q1 enable chaining of
both interfaces with an easy point-to-point cabling.
LMP-1 and LMP-2 interfaces are used for local access with MetroHub Manager.
The LMP port has the general address of 4080. This address can be used if the
LMP is not chained. The manager uses this address when the Connect Locally...
option is selected. If the LMP is chained, a unique Q1 address must be selected
for the LMP and the connection to the node is established with the Connect...
option in the manager.
Q1-1 and Q1-2 interfaces are for remote management of external Q1 equipment.
To enable remote management, a transmission channel for Q1 has to be created
with the manager. This channel is called EOC, embedded operations channel. The
channel can be transmitted either in the radio overhead or in a selected time slot
inside a 2 Mbit/s signal. When the radio overhead is used, the sampling rate is
always at least 64 kHz. With STM-1 the EOC connection is handled in the exact
same way, as you can cross-connect the 2M channel of an STM-1 interface
towards FXC Bridge.
The following figure shows examples of Q1 network connections. The NMS
forms the user interface. Between the NMS and BSC exists, for example, an X.25
connection. In this example, the BSC is the polling device. The Q1 data is
transported inside a 2 Mbit/s signal between the BSC and MetroHub #1. Then Q1
continues towards MetroHub #2. For this there are two options. The first one (A)
shows that the Q1 is in the overhead of the radio connection between MetroHub
#1 and #2. The second option (B) is that the Q1 is inside a 2 Mbit/s frame
between both nodes. In addition, it is possible to extract the Q1 signal from
MetroHub #1 and poll another Q1 element, in this example: FIU 19.

Figure 62. Examples of Q1 network connections
Local management bus
The local management bus (LMB) connects the node control unit to the local
management port (LMP).
Q1 buses in a network
Large Q1 networks are sometimes divided into Q1 buses because of reliability
and polling time issues. In this case, several Q1 channels are created in the
polling equipment, for example, the BSC. These channels are used to divide the
network logically into different Q1 networks.
If Q1 buses are used, the Q1 channels must be considered as normal data
channels up to the place where the Q1 bus usage starts. In the nodes starting from
the polling equipment up to the place where Q1 bus usage starts, the Q1 channels
have to be cross-connected as normal data. In the nodes that are in the Q1 bus, the
EOC is used for dropping the Q1 channel to the node control unit processor, as
well as for forwarding the channel to the next network element.

7.1 Technical description of hot standby with the FXC
RRI transmission unit
7.1.1 Introduction to hot standby
Hot standby is a method of equipment redundancy in which two radio
transmitters are kept ready (switched on), so that if one fails, the other one
immediately picks up where the first one left off.
In single use, the signal is not protected against equipment or propagation faults.
If there is a fault, the connection remains broken until the equipment fault has
been repaired or the cause for the propagation fault disappears. Hot standby
provides protection against faults in the equipment.
The supported hot standby setup of one FXC RRI transmission unit with two
Nokia FlexiHopper (Plus) outdoor units is shown in the following figure. Active
units are shown in grey and passive units in white.

In hot standby mode, the transceivers of both radios are on but the transmitter of
the protecting radio is in mute state. The changeover criteria are divided in two
cases: (OU) receiver changeover and (OU) transmitter changeover. These two are
independent of each other.
Note
Connecting a Flexbus cable to a passive outdoor unit of an operative protected
hot standby hop may cause a few bit errors to the transmitter and receiver of the
active outdoor unit.
7.1.2 Outdoor unit transmitter changeover switches
Outdoor unit transmitter changeover switches are controlled by the processor of
the indoor unit. The active outdoor unit is changed if a hardware fault is detected
in the unit or if the far-end radio cannot receive the signal. Changeover can also
be performed when the reception quality at the far-end has been degraded.

7.1.3 Indoor unit changeover switch
The indoor unit Rx changeover switch is located in the ASIC, and it is hardware
controlled. The changeover is based on detected FEC (forward error correction)
errors. The Rx changeover is also possible by the control of the indoor units
processor. In receiver changeover, depending on the received radio signal quality
and available receivers, the system tries to minimise the errors in the received
data via selecting the outdoor unit with the lower bit error ratio. When the active
receiver receives a serious fault, a receiver changeover is made. During the
changeover, bit errors occur and synchronisation is momentarily lost.
Possible serious receiver faults are:
.
Flexbus cable is disconnected or broken.
.
Flexbus power is off.
.
Flexbus 'in use' setting is turned off.

7.1.4 Alarms that occur with changeovers
After the changeover, the system activates the alarm 128 Fault in equipment
including information about which unit is faulty. Other alarms of the faulty unit
show the actual reason for the fault. After the fault has been corrected (for
example, the unit has been replaced and commissioned) the system activates the
hot standby protection method and clears the alarms.
If the passive transmitter breaks down, the system activates the 128 Fault in
equipment alarm and Tx changeover is not possible until the fault has been fixed.
Note
When an outdoor unit of a hot standby protected hop is replaced, the outdoor unit
settings of the new outdoor unit should be checked (may be in the default state)
with the node manager. The Tx frequency and interleaving settings must be the
same in both outdoor units of the hot standby protected hop. If the settings are
different, the 143 Fault in changeover function alarm is activated. In that case
changeover is still possible, but after the Tx changeover the frequency may be
illegal.
7.2 Technical description of PDH transmission network
protection using loop topology
7.2.1 Introduction
Nokia loop protection is considered the most efficient way to protect traffic in a
transmission network such as a base station subsystem (BSS). In a live
telecommunications network it is important to secure, in addition to the actual
payload traffic, the network synchronisation and the centralised network
management during any period of abnormal circumstances.
For these reasons, Nokia loop protection protects:

network management connections.
A transmission loop formed with Nokia elements consists of one loop master and
several loop slaves. Usually the loop master is a transmission node, whereas the
loop slaves can be either transmission nodes, BTSs or a combination of both
inside one loop.
The loop principle is that the transmitted signal is always sent in both directions,
but the received signal is selected from one direction only. The loop master sends
pilot bits on the basis of which the switching decision is made. Each individually
protected slave station needs one pilot bit.
Network synchronisation must also be ensured in a loop network and it follows
the loop principle in a similar way. The synchronisation switching takes place
independently from the pilot bits by having master clock bit (MCB) and loop
control bit (LCB).
Each network element decides individually from which direction the signal and
the synchronisation will be received, and thus it does not require any external or
additional supervision for its decision.

Figure 64. Loop principle
Nokia's way of implementing loop protection is ultimately secure, providing very
fast route switching that recovers the transmission connections instantly. Nokia
loop protection is embedded and thus very fast. Nokia loop protection protects
against failures, such as cable-cuts, equipment failures, heavy rain and multipath
fading, and against obstacles in the line-of-sight, such as cranes and growing
trees.
Compared to an unprotected wireless network, Nokia loop protection increases
site availability at least tenfold and prevents end-of-chain availability
degradation. Further, it enables significant increase in hop lengths, without
sacrificing site availability and helps minimise the antenna sizes of the radio
links.
Nokia loop protection is an easily activated system feature where Nokia
MetroHub and UltraSite EDGE BTS can act as the master node. In addition,
several Nokia MetroHub nodes and Nokia base stations can be looped together.
The protection functionality is compatible with the existing Nokia BSS
transmission.

document that can be obtained upon request.
7.2.2 Protecting payload traffic
A pilot bit is a special kind of bit with a preset value (zero), and it is sent among
the protected traffic in a known position. For example, protecting a 2 Mbit/s link
requires one bit out of the 2 Mbit/s stream to be reserved for this purpose.
Similarly, if the traffic is protected at a partial 2 Mbit/s level, for example,
because two different base stations share one 2 Mbit/s line, one pilot bit is
required for each slave station.
The location of the pilot bit is defined in the network plan, and it is often within
one of the last time slots of the 2 Mbit/s frame. In principle, the location can be
selected freely, but a harmonised practise in the network may be advisable for
easy site commissioning and network documentation.
The state of a pilot bit is set to 0 (zero) at the sending station, which sends
identical digital streams (payload and the pilot bit protecting it) in directions 1
and 2 in the loop.
Any failure in the connection between the sending station and the intended
destination causes the pilot bit to change from zero to one (based on AIS). Thus
the target station, receiving a 'one' instead of a 'zero' knows that the connection is
faulty.
The following figure shows the loop principle between the loop master and one
slave. The traffic in the other slave stations is bypassed.

UltraSite EDGE BTS Product Description
The principle of masking in the loop network is to use the logical 'AND'
operation with '0', when the result is always '0', and masking with '1' when the
output is the same as the input signal (either unchanged '0' or '1').
In the example in the following figure, pilot bits are sent to four slave nodes in the
loop. The view is from a cross-connection termination point setting.

At loop slave sites, each node must forward the pilot bits from other slave stations
unchanged and send its own pilot bit as zero in both loop directions. This is done
with the bi-directional masked type of cross-connections. The following figure
presents the pilot bit masking of the second slave node (bit 2) and other pilot bits
forwarding in the loop. The view is from a cross-connection termination point
setting.

UltraSite EDGE BTS Product Description
Nokia loop protection can be configured either as equal switching or priority
switching. The difference between these is that in priority switching the
connection returns to the initial route as soon as the problem on that link is
solved, whereas with the equal switching the system stays on the selected link
until it gets faulty. Equal switching provides better stability for the connection,
and it is therefore the recommended choice for BSS networks.
7.2.3 Protecting network synchronisation
The implementation mechanism for an automatic detection and recovery of
missing or looped network synchronisation is based on loop network clock
control bits carried within the protected 2 Mbit/s stream:
.
one bit for detecting if the incoming signal is synchronised by the original
network synchronisation master or not (master clock bit, MCB), and
.
one bit for detecting any breaks or loopbacks in the synchronisation chain
(Loop Control Bit, LCB).
The loop master sets the MCB and LCB to '0' (zero) state in both directions. Any
station using a certain received signal for synchronisation sends the LCB back as
'1' (see the following figure), so that the counterpart knows that the
synchronisation of the incoming stream is inherited in such a way that it must not
be used for synchronisation, to avoid a loopback or otherwise faulty
synchronisation. The same applies to all slaves to make sure the synchronisation
remains intact.
Similarly, faulty transmission replaces MCB and LCB with '1' and affected
stations know they are not receiving a valid source signal from that direction.
Figure 68. Manipulating synchronisation loop control bit
In the loop master MetroHub, the MCB/LCB can be sent as zero in both
directions of the loop with uni-directional fixed data or bi-directional masked
types of cross-connections. Use Configuration Synchronisation Loop bits
setting to define the MCB/LCB bit positions. For further information on the
settings, see Adjusting synchronisation loop bit settings.

Node master-slave detection
A synchronisation priority list is always defined first, then the MCB and LCB
bits. The transmission node recognises if it is defined as the master or slave based
on the following information:
.
if the MCB and LCB bits are missing from the synchronisation list, the
transmission node is a master.
.
if MCB and LCB are in the synchronisation list, the transmission node is
used as a slave.
There are a couple of network cases which require the use of real MCB/LCB
settings, and is as such, a better practice for common use.
These cases are, for example:
.
Q1 loop termination is done based on the incoming LCB bit status. If the
loop master node does not have the definition, the Q1 loop protection is not
working.
.
The transmission node is acting as the master of one loop and the slave of
another. The equipment uses loop synchronisation MCB/LCB definition,
MCB = incoming MCB bit and LCB = 0 (except towards the interface
where the clock is coming, where LCB = 1).
.
MCB status is forwarded as received from an upper network element (loop
master using chain synchronisation with MCB definition, MCB =
incoming MCB bit and LCB = 0).
.

(MCB/LCB = 1/0)
The following figure presents the setting of MCB/LCB bits in two directions in

Figure 69. Setting of loop control bits
Note that node synchronisation is always based on priority. The synchronisation
always return to a higher priority route whenever the problem on that link is
solved. This does not cause any problem to the traffic as the synchronisation is
coming from the same loop master.
The location of the MCB and LCB is defined in the network plan. In principle,
the location can be selected freely, but a harmonised practise in the network may
be advisable for easy site commissioning and network documentation.
7.2.4 Protecting remote network management channel
The Q1 network management channel used to manage Nokia PDH transmission
elements is a bus, and therefore it must not be looped.
Q1 loop protection is based on switching into a faultless direction when there is a
breakage somewhere in transmission. The direction is changed according to an
LCB bit.

Figure 70. Network management bus circulation prevention
To avoid ringing and simultaneous polling from two directions, the Q1 loop must
be terminated at the master node. This is the recommended way to implement Q1
network management bus protection with Nokia PDH loop protection. This
termination is used when the loop master is a Nokia MetroHub node, UltraSite
BTS node, or Nokia DN2.
To terminate the loop at the master node:
.
LCB (from the last slave node) = 0 no faults in the network forced
termination towards the last slave node (see above figure).
.
LCB (from the last slave node) = 1 fault in the network forced
termination removed
The loop master is configured so that it sends the network management channel
in just one direction. When a fault occurs in that direction (the loop master detects
it from the received LCB), it knows to allow the network management channel to
propagate in both directions. The Q1 EOC hybrid switch must be set to the OFF
state towards the Secondary Port direction in the loop master. In this case, no
additional settings to the normal Q1 EOC channel are needed in the slave nodes.
In some cases, where the loop master is an older Nokia BTS integrated
transmission unit (TRUx or BIUMD), Q1 protection must be done in the first
loop slave on the secondary port side of the loop master. In this case, both the Q1
primary port and the secondary port must be defined for the loop slave. Nokia
MetroHub, UltraSite EDGE BTS, and MetroSite EDGE BTS support Q1 slave
protection.

7.2.5 Hints for using a loop network
.
Use different FXC units for the protected and protecting ports of a
connection to gain the maximum protection in the hardware reliability
sense.
.
A maximum of 16 synchronisation and network management channel
protection loops can be used within a single node.
.
When 16 x 2 Mbit/s capacity loops are built, each of the three loop
directions require a separate FXC RRI unit.

connection protection scheme (SNC 1+1) on the VC-12 layer. Each path can be
individually selected to be protected or unprotected. In a multiplex section
protection (MSP) scheme, the entire STM-1 signal is protected at all times. Using
SNC 1+1 protection, the required transmission capacity can be optimised by
protecting only the VC-12 paths that need to be protected.
Figure 72. Subnetwork connection protection
The SNC 1+1 protected traffic is broadcasted at the entry point of the ring and
transmitted in both directions. At the add/drop points of the ring, one of the two
received signals is selected depending on the signal quality. Ring protection
protects against propagation faults, fibre cuts (if fibres are used within the ring),
and network element faults.
FXC STM supports inherent monitored subnetwork connection protection plus
(SNC/I+). The plus means that in addition to the standard switching criteria,
'unequipped' is used as the switching criteria. This means that if the protected
path gets the signal label unequipped due to a misconfiguration, the FXC STM
unit initiates a protection switch.

radio relay commissioning. The measured fading margin can be used to verify the
quality of the radio link in network planning. In addition, it can be used for
defining a sensible ALCQ Rx-level set-point. The measurement is carried out
without the aid of any additional tools or measurement equipment.
The automatic fading margin measurement (FMM) is based on four different
measurements: The BER 10-3 threshold signal levels at each capacity and
receiver's (capacity dependent) noise floor are measured in Nokia production for
each radio. Moreover, the noise floor together with received interference signal
level and the normal (maximum) received power level are measured with
commissioned radio relay in the actual environment. Consequently, it is
straightforward to calculate the fading margin from these measurement results.
Generally, the fading margin is defined here as the difference between the normal
received signal level and the required signal level for 10-3 BER in the actual
operation conditions over the commissioned radio hop.
More detailed information about fading margin can be found in the ALCQ and
Automatic Fading Margin Measurement in FlexiHopper Microwave Radio
Application Note that can be obtained upon request.
7.5 Technical description of lazy transmitter
changeover
Lazy transmitter changeover is a protection method against transmitter faults that
cannot be detected by the equipment itself, for example, a faulty antenna. The
FXC RRI transmission unit sends periodical notifications to the far-end about the
radio signal quality. Lazy transmitter changeover is performed, if there are errors
in the transmitted data over a specified interval (see lazy changeover timing
below) that are caused by the near-end transmitter.
Lazy transmitter changeover is performed when the system experiences bit errors
for a longer period. Lazy transmitter changeover is possible only when both
transmitters are available. It is based on analyses of the current and past events.
The system minimises the number of lazy transmitter changeovers, because each
time the changeover is made the synchronisation is lost.
Other factors in the lazy transmitter changeover are:
.
If one of the outdoor units becomes unavailable, the system makes an
instant transmitter changeover and generates the 128 Fault in equipment
alarm.
.
If the bit error ratio (BER) after the changeover is 1000 times higher than
before the changeover, the system makes another changeover back to the
previous transmitter.

7.5.1 Lazy changeover timing
Quality class 1 lazy changeover function is supported, which means that the best
possible protection against undetectable transmitter faults is available. It makes
the first Tx changeover soon after constant BER is detected in the far-end. Also if
far-end BER exceeds 1E-3, the Tx changeover is done immediately.
The BER value presented in the table below is based on the far-end BER, which
is the result of the radio's internal processes and cannot be measured. The BER
value is calculated from the better receiver.
Table 177. Primary and secondary periods of Quality Class 1
