RC) topology model.
>ARNE is used to add, modify and delete Network Objects from the topology model in
>ARNE provides two mechanisms to configure the network topology:
- ARNE Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) ARNE GUIs are more suitable for making
small changes to the network topology.
- Import/Export files Import/Export files are useful for making large changes to the
network topology and for backing up and restoring the network topology.

Cabinet Viewer(2)
The Cabinet Viewer provides the user with a tool to
easily pinpoint a hardware fault in the RBS causing
traffic disturbance. When the user receives an
indication that the service in the radio network is
degraded, the Cabinet Viewer can be launched to
quickly and easily identify the problem.
From the Cabinet Viewer the user can:
Restart the RBS or a selectable object
Lock or unlock a selectable object
Run a Hardware test on a selectable object
Refresh RBS information
Save details (about a faulty selectable object in a file)
Save logs

Obtain RBS and RNC related status information
(including Iub link and RBS hardware status)
Take corrective action directly via NSA
Launch other UTRAN applications if required for
more advanced problem analysis and corrective
Detailed information for UTRAN cells or channels is

PCA(Planned Configuration

PCA(Planned Configuration
OSS Common Explorer displays the valid
configuration, that is, the current active radio network
configuration. Using the PCA view, the user may also
work with planned configurations that are models of
intended changes to the valid configuration. Planned
configurations are prepared with close reference to the
active network, but the changes are not made on the
network until such time as the user decides to
implement them, that is, to activate the planned

Consistency Check (CC)(1)
The Consistency Check application is used to check
that Network Elements in the Radio Access Network
(RAN) have consistent data. If data is not consistent
between Network Elements problems in the network
can occur. Using the Consistency Check interface,
Network Elements can be checked for consistency.
This is done by applying checking Network Elements
configuration data using consistency 'rules'. The
results of a consistency check can be displayed in a
The Consistency Check application is primarily used
in planned configurations to help ensure error-free
configurations. Consistency Check can be used in the
valid area also and is useful in troubleshooting the
valid configuration.
