Title: WSPC unit autonomous reset due to recovery action(0418) was observed on Optima compact BTS during Stability test Version of the SW-build: WN6.0 22.12-148 Valid for Product(s): UltraSite WCDMA Base Station References:

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: EfaultId_undefineduser (ID=439) reported frequently from HSUPA decoder Root cause: Stability test's 439 alarm is seen constantly. Sometimes it could lead to DSP crash and 1806 alarm. Correction: Delete Indication sent to relevant CF. When EDCH user is deleted in Decoder Master, send deletion indication to Decoder Slave meanwhile with "immediately" instruction, to make sure corresponding EDCH user can be deleted for sure in Decoder Slave, because hanging user would probably cause DSP crash in this case.

Title: FSPC unit autonomous resets after RU20 MP3.2 -- L2 crash Version of the SW-build: WN6.0 22.12-148 Valid for Product(s): Flexi WCDMA Base Station References:

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: FSPC Autonomous reset 418 seen at customer site. Root cause: Crash1: Priority Queue pointer address in flow control is not same as the one in Resource Manager leading to Priority Queue pointer pointing to a different location. This could be a cause for the crash. Crash 2: Looks like double free of same memory location happens in flow control and Resource Manager. Correction: For crash1, Initialisation to priority queue pointer in flow control and resetting the same are moved from activate and deactivate flowcontrol to RM when allocating and deallocating the memory. Removal of duplicate user is added in setUserIndex() and delete user index. For crash 2,as the root cause is not clear, debug information are added to catch if its a double memory free problem, so that the root cause will be clear next time when same crash is found.

Title: CS Call setup, but after 90 seconds, this call become one-way call and this call drops Version of the SW-build: WN6.0 22.12-148 Valid for Product(s): Flexi WCDMA Base Station References:

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: CS Call setup, but after 90 seconds, this call become one-way call and this call drop Root cause: Sometimes the power values in RL gain update exceed the limitation. This may affect the TI FL power control functionality. Then CS call may drop sometimes. Correction: When the power value is bigger than the max value, set it to max limitation value. When the power value is smaller than the min value, set it to min limitation value.

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: HSUPA CE usage has increased on Ultra Sites since MP4 upgrade Root cause: After upgrading MP4 SW the CE usage is increases drastically. Correction: In the previous release one pronto [PR 48471ESPE03: RU30: if RT-HSUPA is running NRTHSUPA gets only 300kbps throughput] was introduced.

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: Flexi Rel1: (418) EFaultId_OseFatalErr Root cause: REl1 performance test's 439 alarm is seen constantly. During testing of 22.12-142 several 418 OSE Fatal errors occurred. Sometimes it could lead to DSP crash and 1806 alarm. Workaround: When EDCH user is deleted in Decoder Master, send deletion indication to Decoder Slave meanwhile with "immediately" instruction, to make sure corresponding EDCH user can be deleted for sure in Decoder Slave, because hanging user would probably cause DSP crash in this case.

Title: RRC SETUP FAIL BTS Version of the SW-build: WN6.0 22.12-148 Valid for Product(s): Flexi WCDMA Base Station References:

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: In case of CTS from F-DPCH (CPC) to non F-DPCH failure, because it's likely RBR didn't reach to the UE. Root cause: 1. HSDPA/HSUPA RlDelete handler does not set m_HsRlHandlerPtrTable or m_HsupaRlHandlerPtrTable to NULL, that means does not release resource correctly. This will result RlHandlerPtrTable of HSDPA and HSUPA is fully and later user can't find corresponding RlHandler or invalid user ID. Then corresponding transport resource maybe can't get also or is wrong. 2. During HSPA reallocation resources were not cleaned properly in many cases. a) Timeout was not handled properly. b) ALCAP: REL during reallocation in some time windows broke transport release - race conditions. c) HSUPA realloc Cancel never released transport resources d) User release during reallocation (without closing realloc transaction through commit or cancel) Correction: 1). Correction HSDPA/HSUPA RlDelete handler to release resource correctly as DCH. 2). Correction HSPA reallocation procedure to release resource correctly.

Title: F-DPCH Low throughput and stall Version of the SW-build: WN6.0 22.11-189_J Valid for Product(s): Flexi WCDMA Base Station References:

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: F-DPCH Low throughput and stall Root cause: During testing for 64 QAM with F-DPCH enabled transfer rate would be half of the expected throughput and sometimes it would completely stall then recover to expected data rate. The problem is caused by a problem in TUP user plane SW resulting the data duplication and low throughput. Correction: Problems in TUP SW connection handler and Radio Link handler during the user reallocation commit or reallocation cancel phase corrected to prevent the data duplication problem. Corrected Fault Reports: 66815ESPE01 F-DPCH Low throughput and stall Modified components: Component SS_TUP.Change effects: Effects on Operator During testing for 64 QAM with F-DPCH enabled transfer rate would be half of the expected throughput and sometimes it would completely stall then recover to expected data rate.

Title: Unexpected ARP Version of the SW-build: WN6.0 22.12-145_T Valid for Product(s): Flexi WCDMA Base Station References:

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: In Layer 2 backhaul networks with Flexi WCDMA BTS running WN6.0 MP4 or later SW release in IP IuB mode there is a high risk that Flexi WCDMA BTS goes off air after short IuB breaks, NPGEP switch over or RNC restart. Root cause: The reason is a huge amount of broadcast request in case the connectivity to the NPGEP card is lost and the MAC address needs to be resolved. This will cause problems processing the ARP requests within Flexi WCDMA BTS, as they are all on the same subnet and Flexi WCDMA BTS remain off air since new NBAP connections cannot be initialized. Correction: FTM Application SW ARP functionality will be improved in SCTP init procedure. Instead of sending 10 ARP in the first second and then waiting 4 seconds, FTM will only send one ARP request after 5 seconds until valid response is received. This way ARP bursts can be avoided also on large broadcast domains. Workaround As a first recovery action, the Flexi WCDMA BTS should be set to blocked state in order to avoid generating ARP requests. Later on only some part of blocked BTS can be unblocked at the same time (e.g. in steps of 5 to 10 BTS) keeping the amount of ARP under control.

Title: KPI Degradation with MP3.2_7 (HSDPA DCR, HSUPA DCR) Version of the SW-build: WN6.0 22.11-189_K Valid for Product(s): Flexi WCDMA Base Station References:

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: Not successfully rewritten radio link reconfig parameters in commit phase. It was causing that Rlreconfig fails after which call were dropped. BTS was rejecting many RlReconfiguration from DCH to HSPA switch attempt (from HSPA to DCH switch). Root cause: In case of DlPowerControl procedure during rlReconfiguration procedure after successful DPD wrong connector was used after which parameter was changed which caused unsuccessfully rewritten of RlReconfig parameters in commit phase Correction: DPD connecter usage corrected for commit phase Corrected Fault Reports: 82256ESPE04 KPI Degradation with MP3.2_7 (HSDPA DCR, HSUPA DCR) Modified components: Component 3grlcontroller.spr Change effects: Effects on Operator Lots of Rl reconfiguration fails for HSPA user pool.

Title: Increasing HSPA drop on 2 ultra sites after -177 Version of the SW-build: WN6.0 22.12-148 Valid for Product(s): UltraSite WCDMA Base Station References:

Reason for the Change Note: Problem: HSPA drops after previous failed (timeouted) reallocation during high load. Root cause: On high load condition TUP transport resources were not cleaned properly. Thus next user has been using corrupted resources. 1. ALCAP: REL too soon after ALCAP: ERQ - connection establish was not atomic and was done on two CPU's. If in the middle of connection establishing ALCAP: REL was received it caused hanging transport. 2. During HSPA reallocation resources were not cleaned properly in many cases. a) Timeout was not handled properly. b) ALCAP: REL during reallocation in some time windows broke transport release - race conditions. c) HSUPA realloc Cancel never released tr. resources d) User release during reallocation (without closing realloc transaction through commit or cancel) 3. RecoveryHangingResources workaround a) hiding most of hanging resources' problems b) releasing some "not hanging" resources c) not very clean recovery of resources that were really hanging (data duplication stayed enabled) Correction: Many, many corrections: 1. Huge UP-Transport refactoring and improvement 2. responsibility of data duplication disabling moved from FpHandler to Conman 3. TIMOUT handling - Now on timeout from FP/Transport resources are released properly. 4. Improvement of handling ALCAP:REL during re-allocation (a few special scenarios). 5. Hanging transport connection recovery implemented in Conman 6. ReallocationCancel - send response to TCOM when realloc cancel is really finished 7.
