Handling of BTS Related Observation Alarms

• The automatic installation of Transceiver Controller (TRXC) and its


subordinate Managed Objects (MOs) has failed.

• For BTS logical model G12, Transceiver Group (TG) has at least one MO
which is manually blocked and in service. For BTS logical model G31,
when an MO TG is manually blocked and in service.

• One or more MOs in the Base Transceiver Station (BTS) have been
downloaded with new software and are waiting to be upgraded.

• At least one open Operation and Maintenance Terminal (OMT) connection


resource in BSC is initiated.

• The administrative master Timing Function (TF) is missing in the TG cluster.

• The replacement software version for the TG MO has been rejected by


the BTS.

• Mismatch between the Radio Network Time (RNT) TG time and the BSC
time has been detected.

The function described is applicable to the BTS logical models G12 (see

This alarm is applicable to the BTS logical model G31.

2.1.1 Initiation of Observation Alarm, Automatic MO Installation Fault


This observation alarm is raised when automatic installation of TRXC and its
subordinate MOs (see Reference [1]) has failed.

2.1.2 Observation Alarm Handling, Automatic MO Installation Fault


An observation alarm on a TG is issued when installation of one or more
TRXCs has failed.

If there are no TRXCs or all TRXCs and their subordinate MOs are successfully
installed, then there will be no observation alarm issued for a TG.

When all TRXCs and their subordinate MOs have been successfully installed,
the observation alarm is ceased.

2.2 Master TF Not Defined Observation Alarm


This alarm is applicable to the BTS logical model G12.

2.2.1 Initiation of Observation Alarm, Master TF Not Defined


This observation alarm is raised when none of the TF MOs in the logical TG
cluster has its TF mode set to master. Logical TG cluster is the TG cluster
created with the TG cluster identity.

2.2.2 Observation Alarm Handling, Master TF Not Defined

An observation alarm is issued when the logical TG cluster contains no TF


defined as a master.

If there is no TG cluster with missing master TF, then there will be no


observation alarm issued on TG cluster.

When the administrative master TF in the TG cluster is defined by the operator,


the observation alarm on TG cluster is ceased.

This observation alarm is raised when a command ordered Function Change or
Program Load has successfully downloaded a new software version to one or
more MOs on the BTS.

2.4.2 Observation Alarm Handling, Replacement SW Download

An observation alarm is issued when one or more MOs in the BTS are waiting
for an upgrade.

If there are no MOs with downloaded software in the BTS awaiting upgrade,
then there is no observation alarm issued in the BSC.

When the last MO has been upgraded, the observation alarm in the BSC is
ceased.

2.5 Replacement Software Mismatch Alarm


This alarm is applicable to the BTS logical model G12.

2.5.1 Initiation of Observation Alarm, Replacement Software Mismatch


This observation alarm is raised when the replacement software declared for
a TG has been rejected by the BTS. It means that the replacement software
does not support the current BTS configuration. The BTS remains operating on
downloaded software version.

2.5.2 Observation Alarm Handling, Replacement Software Mismatch


An observation alarm is issued when BTS rejects the replacement software
version declared for the TG.

If the declared software version has been accepted by the BTS, then there is
no observation alarm issued on TG.

When the replacement software version declared for the TG is changed or the
related Central Functions (CF) is taken out of service, then the observation
alarm is ceased.

2.6 RNT BTS and BSC Time Mismatch Alarm

2.6.1 Initiation of Observation Alarm, RNT BTS and BSC Time Mismatch
This observation alarm is raised when a time mismatch between an RNT BTS
and the BSC is detected.

2.6.2 Observation Alarm Handling, RNT BTS and BSC Time Mismatch
The time difference between an RNT BTS and the BSC is checked every hour,
if the time difference is greater than 5 ms, an observation alarm is issued. When
the time difference decreases to below 5 ms, the observation alarm is ceased.

2.7 Used OMT Connection Observation Alarm


This alarm is applicable to the BTS logical model G12.

2.7.1 Initiation of Observation Alarm, Used OMT Connection


This observation alarm is raised when at least one open OMT connection
resource in BSC is initiated.

2.7.2 Observation Alarm Handling, Used OMT Connection

An observation alarm is issued when the first OMT connection resource is


initiated.

If there are no OMT connection resources initiated, then there is no observation


alarm issued in the BSC.

When all OMT connection resources are ended, the observation alarm is
ceased.

Concepts

4 Concepts

For a list of general concepts, see Function Specifications for the BTS logical
models: G12 (see Reference [2]) and G31 (see Reference [3]).

administrative TF mode
This mode defines the wanted mode of the TF in the
TG in the BTS logical model G12. This data is used to
configure the TF. The following modes are applicable:

• Master - The TF should be configured as master but


may be configured as slave temporarily.

• Slave - The TF should be configured as slave but


may be configured as master temporarily.

• Stand-Alone - The TF is not included in the TG


cluster.

• Unconditional Slave - The TF may be configured


as slave only.

BTS software version


A BTS software version is only valid for BTS logical
model G12. It is the file name of the BTS software
package as defined by the function for Administration
of Managed Objects.

download Download is only valid for BTS logical model G12. It is


the transfer of software from the BSC to one or more
specified MOs on the BTS. The downloaded software is
stored in BTS flash memory but is not run on the BTS.
The BTS will continue to run its original software until
an upgrade is performed.

flash memory A secondary store in the BTS where SW files are initially
stored.

logical TG cluster
A TG cluster with assigned TG cluster identity.

observation alarm
A printout informing the operator of an event which has
occurred in the BSC. The observation alarm printout
slogan will specify the event.

1/155 17-CRT 241 22 Uen J | 2016-09-14 9


Handling of BTS Related Observation Alarms

TG cluster Consists of 2 up to 16 co-located TGs in the BTS logical


model G12. The TF of each TG is physically linked.
One of the TGs, configured as master in the cluster acts
as a timing source for other TGs which are configured
as slaves. A TG cluster may be either notional or logical.

TG cluster identity
An instance used to identify all TGs within one logical
TG cluster.

Transceiver Controller (TRXC)


An SO. It provides communication for other MOs
instances. It handles the communication to the
dedicated RX, TX, and TS handlers. It also handles
the maintenance of the TRXC itself. The TRXC is
addressed by a TEI in Layer 2 signaling.

upgrade An upgrade is only valid for BTS logical model G12. It


is the start of previously downloaded software on one
or more MOs in the BTS.
