2.3 Logical Structure
The modular design of the BSC6810 software structure facilitates future expansion.
Table 2-4 describes the functions of the software modules.
Table 2-4 Function description of the BSC6810 software modules
Software Module Function
Internal Switching
Module
The functions of the internal switching module are
implemented by the SCUa boards. The SCUa in the RSS
performs centralized switching and that in the RBS performs
second-level switching. Thus, the BSC6810 provides internal
MAC switching at two levels. The two-level switching enables
complete connection between all modules of the BSC6810.
User Plane Data
Processing Module
The functions of the user plane data processing module are
mainly implemented by the DPUb boards. This module
performs protocol processing at each layer on the user plane
data for the RNC. The DPUb boards perform the protocol
including Frame Protocol (FP), MDC, MAC, RLC, PDCP, Iu
User Plane (Iu UP) and GTP-U protocols.
Control Plane Data
Processing Module
The functions of the control plane data processing module
are mainly implemented by the SPUa boards. This module
processes control plane signaling on each interface for the
RNC. The processed messages are of the following types:
l
Radio Access Network Application Part (RANAP)
l
NodeB Application Part (NBAP)
l
Radio Network Subsystem Application Part (RNSAP)
l
Radio Resource Control (RRC)
l
Service Area Broadcast Protocol (SABP)
Clock Module The functions of the clock module are mainly implemented by
the GCUa/GCGa boards and the clock processing units of
other boards. This module provides the clock for the
operation of the RNC, generates RFN signals, and provides
NodeBs with timing signals.
If the RNC requires GPS signals, the GCGa configuration is
required.
Transmission
Interface Module
The functions of the transmission interface module are
mainly implemented by the AEUa, AOUa, UOIa, PEUa,
POUa, FG2a, or GOUa boards. This module provides the
transmission interface between the BSC6810 and other NEs.
In addition, it performs related protocol processing at the
transport network layer.
For ATM transport, the AAL2 and ATM Adaptation Layer 5
(AAL5) messages are terminated at the transmission
interface module.
For IP transport, this module processes UDP and IP
messages on the user plane and forwards IP messages on
the control plane.

Software Module Function
OM Module The functions of the OM module are mainly implemented by
the LMT, BAM, and related modules of host boards. This
module performs operation and maintenance on the
BSC6810.

2.4 Reliability
The resource pool and redundancy are widely used in the reliability design of the
BSC6810. The techniques of detecting and isolating the faults in the boards and in the
system are optimized and the software fault tolerance capability is improved to
enhance the system reliability.
2.4.1 System Reliability
The following measures are taken to ensure the system reliability of the BSC6810:
l Load control
The system performs load control based on the CPU usage, traffic over each
interface, and radio resource load of the system. Thus, the BSC6810 can keep on
working in case of CPU overload and resource congestion. In this way, the
system reliability is enhanced.
l Dynamic sharing of resources in the system
The DPUb boards and DSPs work in resource pool mode, that is, all the DSPs in
a subrack work as a resource pool. The MPU in a subrack manages and
allocates all the user plane resources within the subrack to fulfill intra-subrack
sharing of user plane resources.
In case of overload, the MPU forwards Radio Resource Control (RRC)
connection requests to other subracks to fulfill inter-subrack sharing of user plane
resources and intra- and inter-subrack sharing of control plane resources.
l Port trunking
SCUa boards support port trunking. This function allows data backup in case of
link failure, thus preventing inter-plane switchover and cascading switchover and
improving the reliability of intra-system communication.
l Dual planes for timing signal transmission
The BSC6810 provides the dual planes for transmission of timing signals
between the GCUa/GCGa and SCUa boards.
The active and standby GCUa/GCGa boards are connected to the active and
standby SCUa boards through the Y-shaped cables. This connection mode
ensures proper working of the timing signals for the system if a single-point failure
occurs to the GCUa/GCGa, cable, or SCUa. In addition, with the Y-shaped cable,
switchover between GCUa/GCGa boards does not affect the SCUa boards.
l Transmission port backup
Optical ports support MSP 1:1 or MSP 1+1 redundancy. FE or GE ports support
port backup and load sharing between the ports. This improves the reliability of
transmission.

11

l OM dual planes
To improve the reliability of OM channels, the BSC6810 provides the OM dual
planes, including dual OMUa boards, dual Ethernet adapters, and dual main
control boards.
l Crystal Aging Compensation technology
The BSC6810 adopts the Huawei-patented Crystal Aging Compensation
technology to compensate for frequency deviation caused by the aging of
temperature-constant crystal oscillators. This technology protects the clock
precision from the influence of the aging of the crystal oscillators and ensures
long-term stability and reliability of the system clock.
l Dual "48 V independent power supplies
The two independent "48 V power supplies operate at the same time to ensure
normal operations in case either of them fails. The failed supply can be restored
without a power cut. This improves the reliability and availability of the power
system.
2.4.2 Hardware Reliability
The BSC6810 uses the reliability methods such as board and port backup and load
sharing. In addition, the BSC6810 improves the reliability and maintainability by
optimizing the fault detection and isolation techniques for boards and the whole
system. The following measures are taken to ensure the hardware reliability of the
BSC6810:
l The system uses the multi-level cascaded and distributed cluster control mode.
Several CPUs form a cluster processing system. Each module has distinct
functions. The communication channels between modules are based on the
backup design or anti-suspension/breakdown design.
l The system uses the redundancy design, as shown in Table 2-5, to support hot
swap of boards and backup of important modules. Therefore, the system has
great error tolerance.

l When an entity fails, the isolation mechanism transfers the services to another
entity for processing. After the system finds a faulty board in the resource pool, it
isolates the board. Then another board in the resource pool will process the
subsequent services.
l When a board with a single function fails, restarting the system might clear the
fault.
l All boards support dual-BIOS. Faults at one BIOS do not affect startup or
operation of the boards.
l The system uses the non-volatile memory to store important data.
2.4.3 Software Reliability
The software reliability is reflected by the strong error tolerance capability of the
product. When the software is faulty, the error tolerance capability of the product
prevents the system from crashing. In other words, the system has self-recovery
capabilities. The BSC6810 derives its error tolerance capability from the following
aspects:
l Scheduled checks on crucial resources
Checks are performed on the software resources of the system. If a resource
deadlock occurs due to software exceptions, it is temporary, because the check
mechanism ensures that the locked resources are released quickly and that
related logs and alarms are generated.
l Task monitoring
When the software is running, internal software faults and some hardware faults
can be monitored through the monitoring process. The monitoring process
monitors the task running status, takes over encountered system exceptions, and
reports the exceptions to the OM system.
l Data check
Scheduled or event-driven data consistency checks are performed, and related
logs and alarms are output.
l Dual-version function
The boards of the BSC6810 all work in active/standby working area mode. The
active working area is used to store version file that is currently used by the
system, whereas the standby working area is used to store a version file that is
different from that in the active working area. RNC version upgrades and
rollbacks can be achieved through switchovers between the active and standby
working areas.
l Data backup
Both the Back Administration Module (BAM) and Front Administration Module
(FAM) support data backup to ensure data reliability and consistency.

faults caused by improper operations.
l Flow control
The BSC6810 automatically performs flow control over the Iub, Iur, and Iu
interfaces.

alarm is cleared upon the rectification of the fault.
The BSC6810 provides the functions of isolating the faulty part, such as activating or
deactivating the faulty part. When a faulty part needs to be replaced, the hot swapping
function enables the rapid power-on of the substitute, thus reducing the time in fault
rectification.
Advanced Software Management Functions for Secure and Smooth Upgrade
The BSC6810 provides the remote upgrade tool, which enables the operator to
upgrade the software at the operation and maintenance center without affecting the
ongoing services. The remote upgrade tool provides the function of backing up the
crucial data in the system. When the upgrade fails, version rollback is performed
immediately and the system returns to normal in a short period.
After the upgrade is complete, version consistency check is performed to ensure the
version correctness.
Rich Tracing and Detection Mechanisms for Reliably Monitoring the Network
Status
The BSC6810 provides the tracing and detection functions of multiple layers and
multiple levels to accurately locate faults. The tracing and detection functions include
user tracing, interface tracing, message tracing, fault detection on the physical layer,
fault detection on the data link layer, and detection of other faults.
The tracing messages are saved as files, which can be viewed through the review
tracing function of the LMT.
