2.2 NE Relation Management


In the NetNumen U31 system, a BSC/RNC and the BTSs/Node Bs under its control can
be deployed separately. For example, an RNC is configured and maintained by an OMM,
but a Node B under its control is managed by another OMM. Considering this possibility,
users are required to add an NE relation for each BTS/Node B in the system. The NE
relation specifies which BSC/RNC is used to control a BTS/Node B.
The NE relation management allows users to view, filter, and export the NE relations
between BSCs/RNCs and BTSs/Node Bs managed by the NetNumen U31 system.

2.3 NE Stability Management


The NetNumen U31 system collects stability events from all managed NEs, stores
the collected events in the database, and generates statistical reports as required.
The collected events include those occurring during maintenance. Users can add the
maintenance information in the system to exclude the events during maintenance from
the stability report because these events do not reflect the actual stability of NEs.
The following explains two concepts involved in NE stability management: stability event
and maintenance plan.

Chapter 2 Wireless Configuration Application Operations

Stability Event
A stability event refers to a failure event occurring in a board of an NE that influences
the NE stability. An NE collects stability events from all its boards and sends the collected
information to the alarm mail box of the NetNumen U31 system. The stability management
application monitors the alarm mail box in real time and determines the severity level of
each stability event in accordance with the weight of board type and the weight of board
redundancy mode.
l

Weight of board type


The system sets the weight of board type for an event depending on the type of the
board where the event occurs. Boards in an NE are classified into two types: interface
board and processing board. The weight of a processing board event is higher than
that of an interface board event.

Weight of board redundancy mode


The system sets the weight of board redundancy mode for an event depending on
the redundancy mode of the board where the event occurs, the quantity of redundant
boards, board type, and bandwidth. A board supports various redundancy modes,
including no redundancy, 1+1 backup, and load sharing. The weight of board
redundancy of an event that occurs in a board configured with no redundancy mode
is higher than the weight of an event that occurs in a board configured with the 1+1
backup or load sharing mode.

The system defines three severity levels in descending order: All, Part, and Light. For
example, the severity level (All) of an event reported by a processing board (higher weight
of board type) in no redundancy mode (higher weight of board redundancy) is higher than
the severity level (Light) of an event reported by an interface board (lower weight of board
type) in redundancy mode (lower weight of board redundancy).
The system can count the duration of stability events occurring in an NE during a period
by severity level and generate an NE stability report. The statistical result in the report
contains the following four parts:
l
l
l
l

Total duration of stability events at the severity level "All"


Total duration of stability events at the severity level "Part"
Total duration of stability events at the severity level "Light"
Total duration of stability events occurring during maintenance

Maintenance Plan
The stability of an NE may be influenced during routine NE maintenance. The stability
events occurring during maintenance should be neglected to ensure appropriate
evaluation of the NE stability. Users can specify a maintenance plan in the system,
including the start time, end time, involved NE type, maintenance operations, and
maintenance objects, to exclude the stability events occurring during the maintenance.
When generating an NE stability report, the system does not count the events occurring
during the maintenance.

The NetNumen U31 system supports the transfer and swap of equipment in the same
network or between two networks of the same system (GSM, UMTS, or TD-SCDMA).
Before transferring the configuration data of a site in the NetNumen U31 system, a
transfer plan file in XLS format must be made by professional engineers. The transfer
plan file contains the information of source nodes and destination nodes, and necessary
modification of the configuration information.

NetNumen U31 R18 Configuration Application Operation Guide

Users can obtain transfer plan templates for different products in a specific path in the
installation directory of the client. The paths of these transfer plan templates follow the
same rule:
\EMS\ERT\folder obtained from remote OMM (name format:
product and version\the path of templates on the OMM. For example, the
transfer plan templates for non-MO GSM products are located in the \EMS\ERT\ISMG
-R6.20.713b-B4.00.200m-\ums-clnt\deploy\template\rnc\template_EN
folder in the installation directory of the client.
The NetNumen U31 system provides the following functions to support site transfer:
l

Exporting configuration data


Users can export the configuration information of the source nodes specified in the
transfer plan file from the system to a ZIP file. This ZIP file can be used for site transfer
later.

Transferring the configuration data for online source nodes


Users can transfer the configuration data of the source nodes specified in the transfer
plan file to the destination nodes, and then remove the source nodes from the system.

Transferring the configuration data for offline source nodes


Users can transfer the configuration data of the source nodes from a predefined
ZIP file to the destination nodes. If the source nodes are managed by the same
NetNumen U31 system, users can remove the source nodes from the system after
the site transfer.
The offline site transfer function can be used for transferring equipment managed by
a NetNumen U31 system to another NetNumen U31 system.

Note:
For a GSM or UMTS site, only the configuration data of base station controllers (BSC
or RNC) can be exported and transferred in the NetNumen U31 system. Users can
only export and transfer the configuration data of a base station (BTS or Node B) by
using a tool provided by the corresponding Operation & Maintenance Module (OMM).
For a TD-SCDMA site, the configuration data of both RNC and Node B can be
exported and transferred in the NetNumen U31 system.

If the process of data export, online transfer, or offline transfer is not completed within
15 minutes, the system will forcibly end the process. The time limit is determined by
the following three parameters in the minos-movesite-wsf-time.xml file in the
ums-client\procs\ppus\minos.ppu\minos-cmc.pmu\minos-movesite-wsf
.par\conf\ directory:

2.10 Cell Maintenance Status Management


A cell works in one of the following four maintenance statuses:
l

Normal
The cell is operating normally. The EMS can receive all data reported by the cell.

Testing
The cell is under test or maintenance. In this status, large amounts of alarms are
generated. All or some alarm and performance data generated during the test or
maintenances are not reported to the NetNumen U31 system.

Fault Management (FM) testing status


The cell base station does not report all or some alarm data to the NetNumen U31
system.

Performance Management (PM) testing status


The cell does not report all or some performance data to the NetNumen U31 system.

The maintenance status of a cell has a lower priority than that of the associated base
station. For example, if the base station is operating in testing status, and one of the cells
belonging to the base station is operating in normal status, part of performance and alarm
data related to this cell is not reported to the NetNumen U31 system.

2.11 Cell Broadcast Management


As an important service in mobile telecommunications system, the cell broadcast service
allows telecommunications operators to send short messages to all mobile users in a
geographic area. The cell broadcast service is different from the point-to-point short
message service. A point-to-point short message is sent to a specific mobile user;
while a cell broadcast message is sent to all mobile users in an area, including roaming
subscribers in this area.
The NetNumen U31 system provides the following cell broadcast management functions:
l
l
l
l

Channel management
Cell management
Area management
Short message management

2.11.1 Short Message Status


The status of a short message created in the NetNumen U31 system may be Unsent,
Sending, or Finished. Figure 2-50 illustrates how the status a short message changes
with different operations performed in the system.

NetNumen U31 R18 Configuration Application Operation Guide

Figure 2-50 Status Change of a Short Message

The following explains three short message statuses:


l

Unsent
If a short message is required to be sent on schedule, the system does not send the
short message to the specified NEs until the required time is reached and the status
of the short message is "Unsent".

Sending

If a short message is required to be sent immediately, the NetNumen U31 system


sends the short message to specified NEs immediately after the short message
is successfully created. The status of the short message is "Sending".

The status of a scheduled short message changes from "Unsent" to "Sending"


when the system starts sending the short message to the specified NEs on
schedule.

Finished

If the NetNumen U31 system fails to send a short message to specified NEs, the
status of the short message changes to "Finished".

If all NEs succeed to send the short message as required, the status of the short
message changes to "Finished".

If any NE fails to send the short message, the status of the short message
changes to "Finished".

If a short message in "Sending" status is deleted by a user, the status of the short
message changes to "Finished".

If a short message in "Sending" status is modified by a user, the status of the short
message changes to "Finished" and the system creates a new short message in
accordance with the modification.

2.15 TD Carrier Frequency Maintenance Management


Description
The NetNumen U31 system provides the query and setting of the maintenance statuses
of carrier frequencies for TD-SCDMA NEs.
A carrier frequency operates in one of the following maintenance statuses:
l

Normal
The carrier frequency is operating properly.

Testing
The carrier frequency is being tested, and the status is not stable (a large number
of alarms may arise). In this status, the analysis of the corresponding alarm and
performance data is meaningless. All or part of alarm and performance data related
to the carrier frequency is not reported to the NetNumen U31 system.

When the carrier frequency is in testing status, configurations can still be reported.
l

FM testing status
In this status, all or part of alarm data related to the carrier frequency is not reported
to the NetNumen U31 system.

PM testing status
In this status, all or part of performance data related to the carrier frequency is not
reported to the NetNumen U31 system.

The maintenance status of a carrier frequency has a lower priority than that of a cell. For
