4 Basic Massive MIMO Functions

4 Basic Massive MIMO Functions

Basic massive MIMO functions include sector beamforming and LEOFD-131301 Massive MIMO Introduction. LEOFD-131301 Massive MIMO Introduction is a prerequisite for activating a massive MIMO cell.

4.1 Principles

Sector Beamforming

Massive MIMO enables an eNodeB to apply beam weight for cells in a sector so that the cell beam deployment modes are adapted to UE distributions in the sector. In this way, massive MIMO achieves spatial multiplexing gains and beamforming gains and improves cell capacity.

The eUCellSectorEqm. CellBeamMode parameter must be set to MASSIVE_MIMO_Ph2 for the sector equipment bound with the massive MIMO cell. Sector beamforming requires LEOFD-131302 32T32R Massive MIMO Package.

Huawei provides cell beam deployment modes and weights for typical UE distribution scenarios in the beam weight file. This file is integrated into the eNodeB software package. After the beam weight file is activated, the SectorSplitGroup and SectorSplitCell MOs are used to configure the beams of each cell in the sector.

l The SectorSplitGroup MO specifies a beam group consisting of AAU sector equipment for a carrier. Table 4-1 and Table 4-2 describe the number of beams in the inner and outer circles supported by each sector split group based on the settings of the SectorSplitGroup. BeamDeploymentMode and SectorSplitGroup. BeamTemplateId parameters when the AAU5711 and AAU5711a are used, respectively. The parameters Cell. DlBandWidth , Cell. UlBandWidth , Cell. DlEarfcn , Cell. UlEarfcn, Cell. UlEarfcnCfgInd , Cell. TxRxMode , Cell. CrsPortNum , and Cell. CPRICompression must be set to the same values for cells in a given sector split group.

The SectorSplitCell MO is used to set the beam index information of split cells in the sector split group, and the SectorSplitCell. CellBeamIndex parameter specifies the beam index of each sector split cell. A specific beam template ID is designed for each sector split cell and each cell corresponds to one beam. The SectorSplitCell. CellBeamTilt parameter specifies the beam tilt of a sector split cell.

l

Each sector split cell is associated with a Cell MO, which is used to configure cell- related parameters, such as Cell. CrsPortNum and Cell. TxRxMode .

l

Static shared beam (SSB) is enabled when the SectorSplitGroup. BeamTemplateId parameter is set to a value greater than 1. For details, see 5 SSB.

l

Dynamic dedicated beam (DDB) is enabled when the SectorSplitGroup. BeamTemplateId parameter is set to 1. For details, see 6 DDB.

LEOFD-13130101 Flexible Active-Unit Management

To enhance system reliability, the following flexible active-unit management policy is supported in massive MIMO scenarios:

l

If more than 28 antennas are functional, the cell works properly. However, network performance, such as the cell throughput, may deteriorate. The impact is directly proportionate to the number of faulty antennas.

l

If 16 to 28 antennas are functional, the cell cannot provide services but is still activated.

l

The massive MIMO cell is deactivated if fewer than 16 antennas are functional.

This feature is free from parameter control. It is enabled by default for massive MIMO cells.

LEOFD-13130102 Adaptive Transmission Mode

l

After SSB is enabled, sector split cells support downlink 2x2 MIMO, 4x2 MIMO, 4x4 MIMO, and adaptive switching between transmission modes. For details about MIMO, see MIMO.

l

After DDB is enabled, sector split cells support adaptive switching between TM4 and

TM9.

LEOFD-13130104 Power Beamforming

Power beamforming enables the eNodeB to adjust the phases and amplitudes based on beam weights in massive MIMO scenarios. With this function, the eNodeB calculates the weight for each RF channel of the AAU. It then allocates transmit power to each RF channel based on the amplitude corresponding to the weight, improving the channel power efficiency and the downlink UE-perceived rate.

This feature is free from parameter control. It is enabled by default for massive MIMO cells.

LEOFD-13130105 Antenna Fault Detection

This feature enables the eNodeB to periodically check for antenna faults. The eNodeB reports ALM-29243 Cell Capability Degraded upon detecting an antenna fault.

In this situation, the value of the alarm parameter Specific Problem is Antenna channel exceptions. The number of functional antennas can be determined based on the values of the TX Channel Numbers In The Cell and RX Channel Numbers In The Cell parameters.

This feature is free from parameter control. It is enabled by default for massive MIMO cells.

5 SSB

5 SSB

5.1 Principles

SSB is deployed based on AAUs. It forms multiple fixed beams on the horizontal and vertical planes through beamforming. SSB is suitable for hotspot capacity expansion scenarios. Each beam independently schedules UEs. In this way, time-frequency resources are reused between beams, improving cell capacity. This function is recommended when an operator wants to expand network capacity but has no free frequencies.

SSB forms multiple beams on the horizontal and vertical planes corresponding to multiple sector split cells based on the settings of the parameters SectorSplitGroup. BeamTemplateId, SectorSplitGroup. BeamDeploymentMode, and SectorSplitCell. CellBeamIndex. This function requires that the SectorSplitGroup. BeamTemplateId parameter be set to 2, 3, or 4 and that the SectorSplitGroup. BeamDeploymentMode parameter be set to MODE_0, MODE_1, or MODE_2. The SectorSplitCell. CellBeamIndex parameter specifies the beam index of each sector split cell. Each beam corresponds to a cell.

SSB forms inner and outer cells (the AAU5711a has no inner cells) on the vertical plane by setting different cell beam tilts through the SectorSplitCell. CellBeamTilt parameter. Figure 5-1 shows the typical SSB for the AAU5711. Beams 0 and 1 correspond to two inner cells, and beams 2 and 3 correspond to two outer cells. Figure 5-2 shows the typical SSB for the AAU5711a. Beams 0 to 3 correspond to four outer cells.

32T32R Massive MIMO SSB

In the uplink, 32 receive channels can be used to receive the same signal of a given UE from different directions to improve reception quality. The eNodeB performs beamforming to form beams targeting specific areas and produce beamforming gains. With SSB, the eNodeB determines the number of receive beams after uplink 32-antenna beamforming based on the setting of the Cell. CrsPortNum parameter.

l

If the Cell. CrsPortNum parameter is set to CRS_PORT_2, two receive beams are formed in the uplink for each cell. The subsequent processing is similar to that of uplink 2-antenna receive diversity. For details, see MIMO.

l

If the Cell. CrsPortNum parameter is set to CRS_PORT_4, four receive beams are formed in the uplink for each cell. The subsequent processing is similar to that of uplink 4-antenna receive diversity. For details, see MIMO.

SSB enables the eNodeB to perform downlink beamforming on 32 antennas, forming multiple beams (cells) on the horizontal and vertical planes. Each beam independently schedules UEs. In this way, time-frequency resources are reused between beams, enhancing cell capacity. The Cell. CrsPortNum parameter can be set to CRS_PORT_2 or CRS_PORT_4 for each cell. All antenna ports of a cell have the same beam shape.

l

If the Cell. CrsPortNum parameter is set to CRS_PORT_2, two logical ports are used for downlink beamforming in each cell, which is similar to downlink 2x2 MIMO. For details, see MIMO.

l

If the Cell. CrsPortNum parameter is set to CRS_PORT_4, four logical ports are used for downlink beamforming in each cell, which is similar to downlink 4x2 MIMO or 4x4 MIMO. For details, see MIMO.

NOTE

NOTE

Each logical port of a cell served by a normal antenna is mapped to an independent physical channel. The beams of massive MIMO cells, however, are formed through beamforming on 32 antennas. Therefore, signals transmitted from multiple logical ports by multiple cells are carried on the same physical channel, achieving power gains. To ensure that the power of each physical channel does not exceed the rated power of a single AAU channel, the maximum cell-specific reference signal (CRS) power is subject to the maximum power allowed by the carrier, the number of split cells on the carrier, the number of CRS ports, and the values of PA/PB. For details, contact Huawei technical support.

PDCCH Power Resource Improvement

The PDCCH power increase offset can be configured using the CellChPwrCfg. PdcchPowerIncreaseOffset parameter to increase the total available Physical Downlink Control CHannel (PDCCH) power. Set this parameter based on the following formula:

Value of PdcchPowerIncreaseOffset (dB) = 10 x log10([Configured power of the local cell {W} + Value of PowerPDCCHMargin {W}]/Configured power of the local cell [W])

where:

l

Configured power (W) of the local cell: specified by the PDSCHCfg. ReferenceSignalPwr parameter.

l

PowerPDCCHMargin (W): = PowerUsedRRUMax SUM(PowerCarrier [i]). PowerUsedRRUMax is the technical specifications of the AAU. For details, see the corresponding technical description. SUM(PowerCarrier[i]): sum of the configured power of all carriers in W.

l

For example, if the configured cell power is 40 W and the value of PowerPDCCHMargin is 10 W: PdcchPowerIncreaseOffset (dB) = 10 x log10(50/40) = 0.96 dB

This function takes effect only when all of the following conditions are met:

l

A massive MIMO cell is set up.

l

The parameters CellRfShutdown. RfShutdownSwitch , CellLowPower. LowPwrSwitch , and CellShutdown. CellShutdownSwitch are set to OFF and the SymbolShutdownSwitch option is deselected under the ENodeBAlgoSwitch. PowerSaveSwitch parameter.

l

The AAU has a power headroom.

5.2 Network Analysis

5.2.1 Benefits

System capacity increases considerably in urban areas where there is contiguous coverage. The gain of the SSB function is closely related to the cell load, coverage contiguity of SSB cells, and UE distribution proportion of each cell. The gain is high if the cell load is heavy, SSB cells provide contiguous coverage, and UEs are evenly distributed in cells.

SSB is recommended when all of the following conditions are met:

l

The inter-site distance is short (for example, less than 500 m).

l

The busy-hour physical resource block (PRB) usage is high (for example, greater than

70%).

l

The penetration rate of TM9-capable UEs is low (for example, lower than 70%).

Otherwise, DDB is recommended. For details about the criteria, see the corresponding site selection criteria.

Downlink PRB usage = L.ChMeas.PRB.DL.Used.Avg/L.ChMeas.PRB.DL.Avail x 100%

PDCCH power resource improvement prevents the limitation in cell capacity caused by insufficient PDCCH resources and improves the cell throughput and average UE throughput

eRAN Massive MIMO (FDD) Feature Parameter Description

5 SSB

in the downlink. When the PDCCH resources of a cell are limited (namely, the equivalent CCE usage is greater than 60%), the optimal gains can be achieved.

5.2.2 Impacts

Network Impacts

l

SSB may decrease the UE-perceived throughput in contrast with 2T2R 3-sector networking when traffic is light (for example, PRB usage < 50%) or load is imbalanced between cells.

l

On a network with non-contiguous coverage from cells generated using SSB, if SSB causes the equivalent cell-specific reference signal (CRS) power to be lower than that of neighboring 2T2R cells, the local cell coverage shrinks.

l

SSB increases the number of logical cells in contrast with 2T2R 3-sector networking. This may decrease the handover success rate and increase the number of radio resource control (RRC) connection reestablishments and the service drop rate.

l

PDCCH power resource improvement may decrease the average downlink cell throughput and downlink spectral efficiency if both PDCCH and Physical Downlink Shared CHannel (PDSCH) resources are limited.

l

PDCCH power resource improvement may increase the PDCCH power headroom in a cell and interference to neighboring cells. Carrier setup may be affected if an over-large PDCCH power headroom is configured.

5.3.4 Others

Networking Adjustment

After SSB is enabled, a sector serving three cells will split into multiple cells served by beams on both horizontal and vertical planes, with each sector covering a horizontal 120° azimuth, as illustrated in Figure 5-3.

Figure 5-3 Splitting a single sector into three cells

5-3 . Figure 5-3 Splitting a single sector into three cells After the cell networking changes,

After the cell networking changes, you need to replan the network configurations, such as neighboring cells, beamwidths, Physical Random Access CHannel (PRACH) configurations, and physical cell identifiers (PCIs).

l

Neighboring cells

The increase in the number of sectors results in more neighbor relationships. The total number of neighbor relationships for each cell may reach the maximum value, requiring adjustments to the existing neighbor relationships.

l

Angles between beams

eRAN Massive MIMO (FDD) Feature Parameter Description

5 SSB

If the Cell. CrsPortNum parameter is set to CRS_PORT_2, it is recommended that the angle between the downtilts of the inner- and outer-cell beams be 6 degrees. If the Cell. CrsPortNum parameter is set to CRS_PORT_4, split into inner and outer cells is not recommended. To enlarge the inner-cell coverage area, reduce the tilt of the inner- cell beam so that the angle between the beams decreases.

l PRACHs and PCIs

More sectors will increase the number of PCI reuses, and cause changes to PRACH root sequence indexes and a shorter distance between cells involved in the reuse. As a result, PRACH root sequence indexes and PCIs are more likely to conflict and need to be replanned and optimized.

In addition, the equivalent RS power of each port before and after SSB is enabled should be considered.

l

If the RS power remains stable, SSB has little impact on network planning because the downtilt of each outer cell will be the same as that of each original cell by default. Network planning will focus on PCIs, neighboring cells, and PRACH root sequence indexes. You need to preferentially adjust the mechanical downtilt.

l

If the RS power decreases, network planning and optimization should consider downtilt angles, angles between beams, RS power, and the settings of PA and PB.

eRAN Massive MIMO (FDD) Feature Parameter Description

5 SSB

eRAN Massive MIMO (FDD) Feature Parameter Description 5 SSB l Two optical fibers can be connected

l

Two optical fibers can be connected between the UBBPex2 and AAU. The optical fibers must be of the same length. The number of carriers, system bandwidth, compression mode, and networking mode must not exceed the CPRI capability of the UBBPex2.

l

When one or two sector split cells are set up in a sector split group, they must be bound to baseband processing units (BBPs). If more than two sector split cells are set up in a sector split group, they can be optionally bound to BBPs. If binding is required, the cells associated with all sector split cells in a given sector split group must be bound to the same BBP. One BBP can be bound to massive MIMO cells associated with all sector split cells in a maximum of two sector split groups. The following table provides MOs and parameters related to binding between massive MIMO cells and BBPs.

l

The parameters Cell. DlBandWidth, Cell. UlBandWidth , Cell. DlEarfcn , Cell. UlEarfcn, Cell. UlEarfcnCfgInd , Cell. TxRxMode, Cell. CrsPortNum , and Cell. CPRICompression must be set to the same values for cells in a given sector split group.
