Technical Description 5 Environment Monitoring Principles

5 Environment Monitoring Principles

This chapter describes environment monitoring principles for eNodeBs. Environment


monitoring detects the following environmental conditions of an eNodeB: temperature,
humidity, water damage, smoke, unauthorized access, and power distribution faults. To
implement environment monitoring, the eNodeB is equipped with environment monitoring
devices and configured with external environment alarms, including Boolean alarms and an
EMUA alarm.

Ports on a UPEU
The Universal Power and Environment Interface Unit (UPEU) is a mandatory board of an
eNodeB. It is configured in slot 18 or 19 in BBU3900. A UPEU provides two EXT-ALM ports
and two MON ports for connections to environment monitoring devices. The ports are described
as follows:

l Each EXT-ALM port supports four Boolean inputs. The two ports are used for connections
to Boolean signal sensors and to dry contacts in a cabinet.
– The EXT-ALM ports can be connected to the environment monitoring ports, including
the alarm port and in-position signal port, on a +24 V DC/DC power subrack in a
BTS3900 cabinet. In this way, PSU status is monitored.
– The EXT-ALM ports can also be used for eight Boolean inputs from sensors, such as
a door status sensor and water sensor. In this solution, data configuration is required.
For example, door status and water damage alarms must be defined for the eNodeB.
l Each MON port supports one RS485 monitoring signal input. The two ports are used for
connections to environment monitoring devices inside and outside a cabinet.
– A MON port can be connected to an environment monitoring device in a cabinet. The
type of the device varies depending on the type of the cabinet.
For example, an APM30H cabinet is installed with a Central Monitoring Unit type A
(CMUA) for centralized monitoring of environment in the APM30H cabinet. The
CMUA provides ports for connections to the door status sensor and smoke sensor and
also provides a port used for three Boolean signal inputs.
Signals of environmental alarms detected by the sensors connected to the CMUA are
processed directly by the LMPT. Therefore, no data configuration is required.
– A MON port can also be connected to an Environment Monitoring Unit type A (EMUA),
which is an environment monitoring device outside an APM30H cabinet, for centralized
monitoring of environment outside the APM30H cabinet.

Technical Description 5 Environment Monitoring Principles

The EMUA is 1 U high. It can be installed in a 19-inch rack with its depth exceeding
300 mm or in a 19-inch cabinet.
The EMUA provides dedicated ports for connections to sensors such as door status,
smoke, water, temperature, and humidity sensors. In addition, the EMUA provides
extended ports for 32 Boolean and analog signal inputs. If the EMUA is used to monitor
environment outside a cabinet, data configuration is required. If the dedicated ports on
the EMUA are insufficient for environment monitoring, the extended ports can be used
and related data configuration is required.

The alarm monitoring devices connected to the UPEU (such as dry contacts, sensors, and the
EMU) are collectively called peer alarm devices in the subsequent sections.

Connections to EXT-ALM Ports


The type of the cable connected to an EXT-ALM port varies depending on the type of the peer
alarm device.

l If the peer alarm device is a +24 V DC/DC power subrack in a cabinet, two signal cables
are required. For details about how to install the cables, see the BTS3900 Installation
Guide.
– Connect one end of an in-position signal cable for the PSU (DC/DC) to the EXT-ALM0
port and the other end to the in-position signal port on the power subrack.
– Connect one end of a monitoring signal cable for the PSU (DC/DC) to the EXT-ALM1
port and the other end to the alarm port on the power subrack.
l If the peer alarm devices are Boolean signal sensors, add a terminal to one end of a BBU
alarm cable by referring to Table 5-1, connect the terminal to a Boolean signal sensor, and
then connect the RJ45 connector at the other end of the cable to the EXT-ALM0 or EXT-
ALM1 port.

Connections to MON Ports


The UPEU can be connected to either a unit in a cabinet or an EMUA outside a cabinet.

If the UPEU needs to be connected to a unit in a cabinet, cable connections vary depending on
the type of the cabinet.

l In an APM30H cabinet, connect one end of a monitoring signal cable between the CMUA
and the BBU to the MON1 port on the UPEU and the other end of the cable to the COM_IN
port on the CMUA. For details about how to install the cable, see the BBU3900 Installation
Guide.
l In an RFC, connect one end of a monitoring signal cable between the CMUA and the BBU
to the MON0 port on the UPEU and the other end of the cable to the COM_IN port on the
CMUA. For details about how to install the cable, see the BTS3900A Installation Guide.
l In a BTS3900 cabinet, connect one end of a monitoring signal cable for the PMU to the
MON0 port on the UPEU and the other end of the cable to the COM port on the PMU. In
addition, connect one end of a monitoring signal cable for the FAN unit to the MON1 port
on the UPEU and the other end of the cable to the COM IN port on the FAN unit. For details
about how to install the cable, see the BTS3900 Installation Guide.

Technical Description 6 eNodeB Synchronization Modes

6 eNodeB Synchronization Modes

This chapter describes the clock synchronization modes of eNodeBs. eNodeBs support
synchronization with the following clocks: GPS/RGPS clock, IEEE1588 V2 clock, Clock over
IP, synchronous Ethernet, 1 PPS+TOD clock, BITS clock, and E1/T1 line clock.
Synchronization refers to maintenance of the relation that at a valid point of time, the phase error
or frequency error between two or more signals stays within the specified range. There are two
types of synchronization: frequency synchronization and time synchronization.
l Frequency synchronization means that the frequency of a signal is the same as the reference
frequency but the origin of the timescale for the signal does not need to be the same as that
for the reference clock.
l Time synchronization is also referred to as time-of-day synchronization, where the origin
of the timescale for a signal needs to be synchronized with the Universal Time Coordinated
(UTC). Therefore, time synchronization implies synchronization in absolute time. The
UTC time is a universal timing standard, in which the atomic clock is maintained accurately
to ensure time synchronization across the world, with the precision to microseconds.
The subsequent sections describe the preceding reference clocks. For details about clock
synchronization, see the Synchronization Feature Parameter Description.

GPS/RGPS Clock
Synchronization with a GPS or RGPS clock requires that each eNodeB be equipped with a GPS
or RGPS receiver. Using the receiver, the eNodeB receives GPS or RGPS clock signals with the
precision to microseconds. In synchronization with a GPS or RGPS clock, both frequency
synchronization and time synchronization are applicable. To implement synchronization with
an RGPS clock, the eNodeB must be equipped with a USCU.

IEEE1588 V2 Clock
IEEE1588 defines the Precision Time Protocol (PTP), which targets synchronization of clocks
in the Ethernet, with the precision to microseconds. In synchronization with an IEEE1588 V2
clock, both frequency synchronization and time synchronization are applicable.

Clock over IP
Clock over IP is a Huawei proprietary frequency synchronization technology, in which
frequency synchronization packets are transmitted over IP. Clock-over-IP signals are transmitted

eNodeB
Technical Description 6 eNodeB Synchronization Modes

to eNodeBs based on a server/client architecture. In synchronization with a clock over IP, only
frequency synchronization is applicable, with the frequency accuracy lower than ±0.05 ppm.

Synchronous Ethernet
The synchronous Ethernet technology has the basic principles that a downstream node traces
the upstream clock by recovering clock signals from the serial data bit streams received at the
physical layer. In synchronous Ethernet, only frequency synchronization is applicable, with the
frequency accuracy lower than ±0.05 ppm.

1 PPS+TOD Clock
In synchronization with a 1 PPS+TOD clock, the eNodeB obtains 1 PPS signals and Time of
Day (TOD) signals to implement time synchronization. The 1 PPS signals are used for time
synchronization. The TOD signals are used to transmit the time information, type of the reference
clock, and working status of the reference clock.

BITS Clock
In synchronization with a BITS clock, the eNodeB is connected to a BITS synchronization
network through the BITS clock card in the eNodeB to obtain frequency synchronization signals.
After phase lock and frequency division, the main clock unit in the eNodeB converts the
synchronization signals into various types of clock signals required for the eNodeB. To
implement synchronization with a BITS clock, the eNodeB must be equipped with a USCU.

E1/T1 Line Clock


In synchronization with an E1/T1 line clock, the eNodeB obtains frequency synchronization
signals from the physical layer of E1/T1 lines. This clock synchronization mode is applicable
when S1 data is transmitted over an E1/T1 network. To implement synchronization with an E1/
T1 line clock, the eNodeB must be equipped with a UTRP.

Technical Description 7 Operation and Maintenance of eNodeBs

7.1 OM Modes
This section describes the operation and maintenance (OM) modes for eNodeBs.
eNodeBs support both local and remote operation and maintenance.
l In local OM mode, maintenance personnel use the Local Maintenance Terminal (LMT) to
operate and maintain a single eNodeB.
l In remote OM mode, maintenance personnel use the M2000 or LMT to operate and
maintain eNodeBs in a centralized manner in the operation and maintenance center (OMC).

Figure 7-1 OM system of eNodeBs

As shown in Figure 7-1, the OM system of eNodeBs consists of the following elements:
l LMT: is mainly used to assist eNodeB deployment, identify faults, and rectify faults locally.
l M2000: is Huawei centralized OM system, which consists of the M2000 server and the
M2000 client. M2000 can be connected to eNodeBs of different models and versions
through an OM network for remote centralized operation and maintenance. This mode is
recommended when eNodeBs communicate with M2000 properly.
l eNodeB: is the object of the operation and maintenance.
The required OM software, as described in Table 7-1, must be installed on maintenance
terminals for operation and maintenance of eNodeBs.

7.2 OM Functions
This section describes the OM functions of eNodeBs, covering configuration management, fault
management, performance management, security management, software management,
deployment management, equipment management, and inventory management.

Configuration Management
Configuration management includes data configuration, query, export, backup and restore, and
configuration synchronization with M2000.

The data configuration is based on Managed Objects (MOs) of the following categories: device,
transport, and service. These categories are independent of each other. Generally, modifications
of the service configuration do not require modifications of the device configuration, and
modifications of the device configuration do not require modifications of the service
configuration either.

Fault Management
Fault management includes fault detection, fault isolation and self-healing, alarm reporting, and
alarm correlation. The faults might be related to hardware, environment, software, transmission,
cells, and different types of services in cells.

l Fault isolation and self-healing bring the following advantages: (1) prevents a fault in some
part of an eNodeB from affecting the entire eNodeB; (2) re-establishes a cell of lower
specifications to minimize the impact of the fault on services.

Issue 06 (2011-11-25) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 23

eNodeB
Technical Description 7 Operation and Maintenance of eNodeBs

l The alarm correlation function enables the system to report only the alarm indicating the
root fault and the ultimate impact on services though there are chains of problems caused
by the root fault.

Performance Management
Performance management includes the periodic control on eNodeB performance measurement
and the collection, storage, and reporting of performance statistics.

eNodeBs collect performance statistics every 15 or 60 minutes. If communication between an


eNodeB and the mobile Element Management System (EMS) fails, the eNodeB can store a
maximum of three days of performance measurement results. The performance measurement
covers eNodeB-level and cell-level performance, neighboring cells, transmission, standard
interfaces, and the device usage.

eNodeBs support real-time monitoring of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) at intervals of one
minute, which helps detect and identify faults in time.

Security Management
Security management provides the eNodeB authentication and access control functions, which
include user account management, rights management, login management, identity
authentication, and operation authentication.

In addition, security management involves security control on the channels between eNodeBs
and an EMS. The channels support encryption using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or IP Security
(IPSec).

Security management provides network- and user-level security service. It provides the
following functions:
l Encryption: encryption of important user information
l Authentication: management of user accounts and authentication of users
l Access control: control of operation access
l Security protocol: support for SSL and IPSec

Software Management
Software management includes software version management, software version upgrade, and
patch management.

l Software version management involves query, backup, and restore of software versions.
l Software version upgrade can be performed on a batch of eNodeBs remotely. With the one-
click upgrade wizard provided by M2000, users can perform health checks before and after
the upgrade and back up, download, and activate the software. During this process, users
can check the upgrade status and results. eNodeBs support automatic updates of
configurations during upgrades, and users only need to follow the instructions in the
upgrade wizard. In addition, eNodeBs support rapid version rollback by running a single
command, reducing the impact of upgrade failures on the system.
l Patch management includes query, download, loading, activation, deactivation, rollback,
and removal of patches. Installing patches does not affect system services.

Technical Description 7 Operation and Maintenance of eNodeBs

Deployment Management
The eNodeB deployment solutions include board-ready transportation, automatic discovery of
eNodeBs, initial configuration by using a USB disk, and remote deployment. These solutions
greatly reduce the workload and efforts of field installation personnel. No computer is required.
The personnel only need to install the hardware.
l By using automatic discovery of eNodeBs, users do not need to set the IP addresses of the
eNodeBs and EMS.
l Users can download software and data of an eNodeB from a USB disk, thereby saving time
especially when the bandwidth of transmission between the eNodeB and the EMS is
insufficient.
l During remote deployment, software commissioning is performed in the Operation and
Maintenance Center (OMC) rather than on site. Customers can perform acceptance tests
on the eNodeB deployment in the OMC.

Equipment Management
Equipment management includes data configuration, status management, and fault detection
and handling for all the devices in an eNodeB. On the device panel, users can view the device
status and perform blocking, reset, and switchover.

Inventory Management
Inventory management includes collection and reporting of the inventory information about
eNodeBs. With inventory management, users can manage network equipment (NE) assets in the
OMC in a centralized manner.

Technical Description 8 eNodeB Reliability

8.1 System Reliability


System reliability is ensured by using the intra-board baseband resource pool, LMPT cold
redundancy, and RRU channel cross-connection under MIMO.

Intra-Board Baseband Resource Pool


Intra-board baseband resource pool is designed to enable dynamic allocation of baseband
resources based on the specifications and load status of an LBBP. This increases the usage of
baseband resources and improves system reliability.
The functions of the baseband resource pool are as follows:
l If all resources of an LBBP are used to serve a single cell, users are allocated different
baseband resources in a fair manner based on the baseband load on the LBBP.
l Full redundancy of intra- or inter-cell baseband resources is achieved. When some baseband
resources are unavailable, the associated services can be diverted to other available
baseband resources. In this way, the services in the cell can be restored.

LMPT Cold Redundancy


Each eNodeB supports LMPT cold redundancy, in which two LMPTs in BBU3900 work in
active/standby mode. When the active LMPT experiences a major fault or a user runs the
switchover command, an active/standby switchover is performed automatically or manually,
respectively.
LMPT cold redundancy prevents system collapse caused by LMPT failures and therefore ensures
system reliability of eNodeBs. An active/standby switchover, however, interrupts eNodeB
services for less than three minutes.

RRU Channel Cross-Connection Under MIMO


RRU channel cross-connection under MIMO is implemented by cross-connections of RF
jumpers between RRUs/RFUs and antennas and data switching in the connected LBBP. This
function improves reliability of the entire network with no requirement for additional hardware.
It partially achieves self-healing, preventing permanent failures to provide services in cells
caused by faults in a single RRU or RFU.
This function is applicable in scenarios where three sectors are configured on three 2T2R RF
units. When an RRU or RFU serving a sector fails, the sector is degraded from MIMO to Single
Input Single Output (SISO), preventing total service failure in the entire sector. At the same
time, another sector using the RRU or RFU is also degraded from MIMO to SISO. After the
fault of the RRU or RFU is rectified, the sectors change from SISO back to MIMO automatically.
In this way, self-healing is achieved.
Figure 8-1 shows the cable connections between RRUs and antennas and data streams. The
cable connections and service data flows for RFUs are the same as those for RRUs.

Figure 8-1 Cross-connections between RRUs and antennas under MIMO and data streams

l In the uplink as shown in Figure 8-1, the CPRI ports receive data from RRU 0 and RRU
1. After user plane data of sector 0 is separated from data of the other sectors, the user plane
data of sector 0 is sent to the module in the LBBP that processes data of sector 0.
l In the downlink as shown in Figure 8-1, user plane data of sector 0 in the LBBP is sent
through different CPRI ports to RRU 0 and RRU 1.
l If RRU 0 shown in Figure 8-1 is faulty, user plane data of sector 0 can be exchanged
through RRU 1.

8.2 Hardware Reliability


Hardware reliability is ensured by the anti-misinsertion design of boards, overtemperature
protection, reliable power supply, and surge protection design.

Anti-misinsertion Design of Boards


When a board of one type is inserted into a slot for another type of board, the board cannot
connect to the backplane. This protects the equipment from damage.

Issue 06 (2011-11-25) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 28


Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
eNodeB
Technical Description 8 eNodeB Reliability

Overtemperature Protection
When the temperature near the PA in an RF unit of an eNodeB is too high, the eNodeB generates
overtemperature alarms and immediately shuts down the PA. This protects PA from damage
caused by overtemperature.

Reliable Power Supply


The reliable power supply is achieved using the following techniques:
l Support for wide-range voltages and surge protection
l Power failure protection for programs and data
l Protection of power supply against overvoltage, overcurrent, and reverse connection of
positive and negative poles on boards

Surge Protection Design


Surge protection is applied to AC and DC power ports and various input and output signal ports
such as E1/T1 and FE/GE ports of eNodeBs.

8.3 Software Reliability


Software reliability is ensured by the redundancy of important files and data and the powerful
error tolerance of software.

Redundancy
eNodeBs provide the redundancy function for important files and data, such as software versions
and data configuration files, to ensure proper operation of the eNodeBs when errors occur in
these files and data.
l Redundancy of software versions: An eNodeB stores software versions, including the
BootROM version, in different areas to provide redundancy. If the active version is
abnormal, the eNodeB switches to the backup version.
l Redundancy of data configuration files: An eNodeB stores data configuration files in
different areas to provide redundancy. If the current file is damaged, the eNodeB can
continue working properly by loading the backup file.
l Redundancy of boards: Two boards of the same type can work in active/standby mode.
When the active board fails or is faulty, the standby board takes over, ensuring proper
operation of the eNodeB.

Error Tolerance
When software errors occur, eNodeBs will not collapse, because of their self-healing capability.
The software error tolerance covers the following aspects:
l Scheduled check of key resources: eNodeBs perform occupancy check on software
resources. If resource hang-up occurs in an eNodeB due to software errors, the eNodeB
can release the unavailable resources in time and export logs and alarms.
l Task monitoring: When software is running, eNodeBs monitor tasks for all types of internal
software errors and some hardware faults, if any. When an error occurs in a task, an alarm
is reported and self-healing measures are taken to restore the task.

Technical Description 8 eNodeB Reliability

l Data check: eNodeBs perform scheduled or event-triggered data consistency checks and
restore data consistency selectively or preferentially. In addition, eNodeBs generate related
logs and alarms.
l Watchdog: When a software error occurs in an eNodeB, the eNodeB detects the error
through the software and hardware watchdogs and automatically resets.

11.2 Technical Specifications of RRUs


An RRU is a remote radio unit. One or more RRUs constitute the radio frequency (RF) part of
a distributed eNodeB. RRUs can be installed on a pole, wall, or stand. They can also be installed
close to antennas to shorten the feeder length, reduce feeder loss, and improve system coverage.
This chapter describes the technical specifications of RRUs, such as the working mode,
frequency band, output power, and antenna capability.
