Automatic OMCH Establishment Feature Parameter
Description

2 Overview

Overview

2.1 Introduction
Operation and maintenance channels (OMCHs) are established between base stations and the
operation maintenance center (OMC, either the U2000 or BSC). OMCHs are used to transmit
operation and maintenance information about base stations and are classified as follows:
l

OMCHs between the single-mode base station, such as the eGBTS, NodeB, or eNodeB and
the U2000, or between the GBTS and the BSC.

OMCHs between the co-MPT multimode base station and the U2000.

MPT is short for main processing and transmission unit. OMCHs between the separateMPT multimode base station and the U2000. The separate-MPT multimode base station is
comprised of multiple cascaded single-mode base stations and therefore has multiple
OMCHs. For example, OMCHs for the separate-MPT UMTS/LTE dual-mode base station
include the OMCH between the NodeB and the U2000, and the OMCH between the
eNodeB and the U2000.

OMCHs between the U2000 and the NodeB in an ATM network.


NOTE

One end of an OMCH is located at the main control board of a base station. Depending on the configuration
of the main control board, multimode base stations are classified into co-MPT multimode base stations and
separate-MPT multimode base stations. For co-MPT multimode base stations, GSM, UMTS, and LTE
modes share the same main control board and OMCH. For separate-MPT multimode base stations, GSM,
UMTS, and LTE modes have their respective main control boards and OMCHs.
In this document, a base station is used if differentiation among GSM, UMTS, and LTE modes is not
required. A GBTS, eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, co-MPT multimode base station, or separate-MPT multimode
base station is used if differentiation among GSM, UMTS, and LTE modes is required.
In this document, the BSC is the OMC of a GBTS and the U2000 is the OMC of an eGBTS, NodeB,
eNodeB, separate-MPT multimode base station, or co-MPT multimode base station.

The Automatic OMCH Establishment feature enables a powered-on base station, which is
configured with hardware but no transmission information, to obtain OMCH configuration
information through the transport network and automatically establish an OMCH to the U2000
or BSC. The base station can then automatically download software and configuration files/
configuration data from the U2000 or BSC over the established OMCH and activate them. After
being commissioned, the base station enters the working state. For details, see 3900 Series Base
Station Commissioning Guide.

Automatic OMCH Establishment Feature Parameter
Description

2 Overview

This feature applies to base station deployment by PnP. Figure 2-1 shows the O&M path selfestablishment phase during deployment by PnP.
Figure 2-1 Automatic OMCH establishment phase during base station deployment by PnP

NOTE

This document describes only the procedures marked in the dashed box shown in Figure 2-1.

To establish an OMCH, a base station needs to obtain the following transmission configuration
information:
l

Basic information, including its OM IP address, OM virtual local area network (VLAN)
ID, the interface IP address, the interface IP address mask, the IP address of the next-hop
gateway, the IP address of the U2000 or BSC, and the IP address mask of the U2000 or
BSC.

For details about how the base station obtains the preceding information, see chapter "Base
Station Obtaining Transmission Configuration Information".

2.2 Benefits
With the Automatic OMCH Establishment feature, a base station can establish OMCHs by
network communication without requiring operations at the local end. This implements remote
base station deployment by PnP, thereby facilitating base station deployment and reducing the
deployment cost and time.

IP-based Automatic OMCH Establishment


for Base Stations

3.1 OMCH Protocol Stacks


OMCHs between the eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT multimode base station and the
U2000 are carried over Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). OMCHs between the GBTS and
the BSC are carried over User Datagram Protocol (UDP).
Figure 3-1 shows the protocol stacks for an OMCH between the eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or
co-MPT multimode base station and the U2000.
Figure 3-1 Protocol stacks for an OMCH between the eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT
multimode base station and the U2000

As shown in Figure 3-1, an OMCH between the eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT
multimode base station and the U2000 is carried over TCP and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), of
which SSL is optional.
The eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT multimode base station listens to the TCP connection
establishment request with a specific TCP port number from the U2000, and establishes the TCP
connection to the U2000 as requested. After the TCP connection is established, the U2000
initiates an OMCH establishment request to the eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT multimode
base station.

Description

3 IP-based Automatic OMCH Establishment for Base


Stations

The U2000 can use SSL to perform encryption and authentication for OMCHs and enable the
establishment of SSL-based OMCHs. SSL uses the public key infrastructure (PKI), with which
the communication between the base station and the U2000 is protected against eavesdropping
and therefore confidentiality and reliability are guaranteed. For details about SSL, see SSL
Feature Parameter Description.
Figure 3-2 shows the protocol stacks for an OMCH between the GBTS and the BSC.
Figure 3-2 Protocol stacks for an OMCH between the GBTS and the BSC

As shown in Figure 3-2, an OMCH between the GBTS and the BSC is carried over UDP. The
GBTS listens to the UDP connection establishment request with a specific UDP port number
from the BSC, and establishes the UDP connection to the BSC as requested. After the UDP
connection is established, the BSC initiates an OMCH establishment request to the GBTS.
NOTE

During the OMCH establishment procedure, the eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT multimode base
station listens to specific TCP port numbers, and the GBTS listens to the UDP port numbers. For details,
see Communication Matrix of 3900 Series Base Stations. The packets with these port numbers must be
allowed to pass through the firewall between the base station and the DHCP server, U2000, or BSC.
After establishing an OMCH to the U2000, the base station uses File Transmission Protocol (FTP) to
download software and configuration files from the FTP server. FTP runs over TCP/IP, and therefore its
transport layer can be secured using SSL. For details about FTP, see RFC 959.
After establishing an OMCH to the BSC, the GBTS uses the proprietary protocol that runs over UDP to
download software and configuration files from the BSC.

3.2 Base Station Obtaining Transmission Configuration


Information
3.2.1 Transmission Mode of the OMCH
A base station has two types of transmission ports: E1/T1 ports and Ethernet ports. E1/T1 ports
support TDM, ATM, and IP over E1/T1 transmission modes, and Ethernet ports support IP
transmission mode. No transmission mode is configured on the base station before the OMCH
is established. Therefore, the base station tries different transmission modes over the

transmission ports until the OMCH is successfully established. Different base stations try
different transmission modes in polling mode:
l

eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, and co-MPT multimode base station: IP over FE/GE, ATM, and
then IP over E1/T1

GBTS: TDM, IP over E1/T1, and then IP over FE/GE

3.2.2 Physical Layer Detection


A base station negotiates with a peer transmission device about the duplex mode and data rate
for an Ethernet port on the physical layer. The peer transmission device can work in autonegotiation or full duplex mode.
If an E1/T1 port is available on the physical layer, an eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT
multimode base station attempts to set the working mode of a detection port to E1/T1 mode, and
users can set the working mode of a detection port to E1/T1 mode for a GBTS by using the
related DIP switch.

3.2.3 Data Link Layer Detection


IP over FE/GE Transmission
A base station obtains the VLANs used by the data link layer through the VLAN acquisition
process. For details, see section 3.2.8 Schemes for Obtaining VLAN Information for DHCP
Packets.

IP over E1/T1 Transmission


You can learn that a base station works in E1 or T1 mode from physical layer detection. The
base station supports PPP/MP detection on E1/T1 timeslot combinations. Table 3-1 and Table
3-2 describe the E1 and T1 timeslot combinations, respectively. Note that PPP is short for Pointto-Point Protocol and MP is short for Multilink Protocol.

3.2.4 DHCP Overview


3.2.4.1 Introduction
Before an OMCH is established, a base station is not configured with any data and cannot
perform end-to-end communication with other devices at the IP layer. To implement this
communication, the base station needs to obtain the following information:

OMCH configuration data, including the OM IP address, OM VLAN ID, interface IP


address, interface IP address mask, IP address of the next-hop gateway, IP address of the
U2000 or BSC, and IP address mask of the U2000 or BSC.

The base station uses DHCP to obtain the preceding information. DHCP is used to allocate and
distribute configuration parameters and adopts the client/server mode. The DHCP procedure
involves the following logical NEs:
l

DHCP client: a host that uses DHCP to obtain configuration parameters

DHCP server: a host that allocates and distributes configuration parameters to a DHCP
client

DHCP relay agent: an NE that transmits DHCP packets between a DHCP server and a
DHCP client. A DHCP relay client must be deployed between a DHCP server and a DHCP
client that are in different broadcast domains.

After a DHCP client accesses the network, it actively exchanges DHCP packets with its DHCP
server to obtain configuration parameters. During the exchange, the DHCP server and the DHCP
relay agent listen to DHCP packets in which the destination UDP port number is 67, and the
DHCP client listens to DHCP packets in which the destination UDP port number is 68.

3.2.4.2 DHCP Interworking


When a DHCP client and a DHCP server are in the same broadcast domain, they can receive
broadcast packets from each other. Figure 3-3 shows the interworking between the DHCP client
and DHCP server that are in the same broadcast domain.
Figure 3-3 DHCP interworking between the DHCP client and DHCP server that are in the same
broadcast domain

Issue 01 (2014-04-30)

After the DHCP client starts, it broadcasts a DHCPDISCOVER packet to search for an
available DHCP server. The DHCPDISCOVER packet carries the identification
information about the DHCP client.

2.

The DHCP server responds to the DHCPDISCOVER packet with a DHCPOFFER packet.

3.

The DHCP client sends a DHCPREQUEST packet to the DHCP server, requesting
parameters such as an IP address.

4.

The DHCP server sends a DHCPACK packet to the DHCP client to assign parameters such
as an IP address.

5.

If the assigned parameters cannot be used, for example, an assigned IP address has been
used by other DHCP clients, the DHCP client sends a DHCPDECLINE packet to notify
the DHCP server.

6.

If the DHCP client does not need the assigned parameters any more, it sends a
DHCPRELEASE packet to notify the DHCP server so that the DHCP server can assign
these parameters to other DHCP clients.
When the DHCP client and DHCP server are not in the same broadcast domain, they cannot
receive broadcast packets from each other. In this case, the DHCP relay agent function
must be enabled in the broadcast domain of the DHCP client to ensure the communication
between the DHCP client and DHCP server. Generally, the DHCP relay agent function is
enabled on the gateway. When the DHCP relay agent function is enabled, the IP address
of the corresponding DHCP server must be configured so that the DHCP relay agent can
forward the DHCP packets from the DHCP client to the correct DHCP server. Figure
3-4 shows the interworking between the DHCP client and DHCP server that are not in the
same broadcast domain.

same broadcast domain

NOTE

The actual length and sequence of each field in a DHCP packet in software implementation may be different
from those shown in Figure 3-5.

In a DHCP packet, the IP and UDP headers are in the standard format, and the DHCP header
contains the DHCP control and configuration information. In the DHCP header, the fields related
to automatic OMCH establishment are as follows:
l

yiaddr: This field carries the interface IP address of the base station.

giaddr: This field carries the IP address of the DHCP relay agent.
Option fields: They are encoded in code-length-value (CLV) format and consist of many
subcodes. Among them, Option 43 carries Huawei proprietary information elements (IEs)
and most configuration information of the base station. For example, subcode 1 in Option
43 carries the electronic serial number (ESN) of the Huawei base station. For details about
subcodes of Option43, see Table 3-6.

NOTE

Unless otherwise specified, "base station controller" in this document is a generic term for GSM and UMTS
modes.
The DHCP server and the U2000 are different logical communication entities, although they may be
deployed on the same hardware. Therefore, this document distinguishes between the DHCP server and the
U2000.
If the DHCP server is deployed on the base station controller, the base station can be on the same L2
network as the base station controller. If the DHCP server is deployed on the U2000, the base station cannot
be on the same L2 network as the U2000. For security reasons, the U2000's operating system can process
only DHCP unicast packets, not DHCP broadcast packets.

The DHCP server can be deployed on the L2 network of the base station only when the DHCP
server is deployed on the base station controller instead of the U2000. This is because DHCP
packets carry the well-known UDP port number and the operating system of the U2000 always
discards such packets. Therefore, the DHCP server deployed on the U2000 can process only
DHCP packets forwarded by the DHCP relay agent, but not DHCP packets broadcast by the
base station.
In SRAN8.0 and later versions, if single-mode base stations or separate-MPT multimode base
stations evolve to co-MPT multimode base stations, their DHCP servers must migrate to the
U2000. Even if the evolution is not implemented, the migration is recommended, because it
provides better function support and paves the way to future smooth upgrades and evolutions.
When the base station is not on the same L2 network as the DHCP server, a DHCP relay agent
must be deployed. Pay attention to the following when deploying a DHCP relay agent:

Stations

When a next-hop gateway of the base station is deployed on the transport network, the
DHCP relay agent function must be enabled and the U2000 DHCP server IP address must
be configured on the next-hop gateway of the base station.
If the next-hop gateway uses the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), the IP
address of the DHCP relay agent must be set to the virtual IP address of the VRRP.
If the base station is a GBTS, BTSGWIPSWITCH and NEXTHOP must be set to
ON and the next-hop IP address of the GBTS using the SET BTSIP command,
respectively.

When the base station is on the same L2 network as the base station controller, DHCP
packets pass through the base station controller, and the U2000 serves as the DHCP server
for the base station (for example, eGBTS or NodeB), this base station controller can be
deployed as the DHCP relay agent. If the DHCP relay agent function is enabled on a certain
port of the base station controller, this port serves as the DHCP relay agent for all eGBTSs
and NodeBs connected to this port. The ADD DHCPRLY command can be used to enable
the DHCP relay agent function on a port of the base station controller. In this command:
DHCPRLYID indicates the identity of a DHCP relay agent.
DHCPRLYGATEWAYIP indicates the interface IP address of the base station
controller.
DHCPSRVISEMSIP indicates whether the U2000 that manages the base station
controller serves as the DHCP server for the base station. If not, the DHCP server IP
address of the base station (the DHCPSRVIP1 parameter) also needs to be configured.
DHCPPID is used to enable or disable the DHCP relay agent function only on
BSC6900s. The base station controller serves as the DHCP server for the base station
by default. You can select the OTHERSWITCH check box under the DHCPPID
parameter to enable the DHCP relay agent function for the base station.
A few MML command examples are as follows:
//Enabling the DHCP relay agent function on the base station controller when
the U2000 that manages this base station controller is the DHCP server for the
base station
ADD DHCPRLY: DHCPRLYID=1, DHCPRLYGATEWAYIP="10.1.1.1", DHCPPID=OTHERSWITCH-1,
DHCPSRVISEMSIP=Yes;
//Enabling the DHCP relay agent function on the base station controller when
the U2000 that manages this base station controller is not the DHCP server for
the base station and the DHCP server IP address of the base station is
10.0.0.1
ADD DHCPRLY: DHCPRLYID=1, DHCPRLYGATEWAYIP="10.1.1.1", DHCPPID=OTHERSWITCH-1,
DHCPSRVISEMSIP=No, DHCPSRVIP1="10.0.0.1";
NOTE

The base station controller can serve as the DHCP server or DHCP relay agent for certain types of base
stations.
l For the GBTS, the base station controller can only serve as the DHCP server, not as the DHCP relay
agent.
l For the NodeB, the base station controller can serve as the DHCP server or DHCP relay agent.
l For other types of base stations, such as the eGBTS and co-MPT multimode base station, the base
station controller can only serve as the DHCP relay agent.

When base stations are cascaded or backplane co-transmission is applied, an upper-level


base station serves as the next-hop gateway for its lower-level base station. In this case, the
DHCP relay agent function must be enabled and the DHCP server IP address of the lowerlevel base station must be configured on the upper-level base station.
If the upper-level base station is an eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT multimode base
station, run the SET DHCPRELAYSWITCH command with ES set to ENABLE to

enable the DHCP relay agent function. Then, run the ADD DHCPSVRIP command with
DHCPSVRIP set to the DHCP server IP address of the lower-level base station. A
maximum of four DHCP server IP addresses can be configured. If the upper-level base
station is a GBTS, run the ADD BTSDHCPSVRIP command with DHCPSRV set to the
IP address of the lower-level base station's DHCP server.
A few MML command examples are as follows:
For the eGBTS, NodeB, eNodeB, or co-MPT multimode base station:
//Enabling the DHCP relay agent function on the upper-level base station
SET DHCPRELAYSWITCH: ES=ENABLE;
//Setting the DHCP server IP address to 10.19.19.11. Each broadcast DHCP packet
received by the upper-level base station will be forwarded to all DHCP
servers.
ADD DHCPSVRIP: DHCPSVRIP="10.19.19.11";

For the GBTS:


ADD BTSDHCPSVRIP: IDTYPE=BYID, BTSID=20, DHCPSRV="10.100.10.10";

In scenarios where base stations are cascaded, the upper-level base station attempts to use
its OM IP address and the IP addresses of its interface for panel-based interconnection
(lower transmission interface) as IP addresses of the DHCP relay agent.
In scenarios where backplane co-transmission is applied, the upper-level base station
attempts to use its OM IP address and the IP addresses of its interface connecting to the
transport network (upper transmission interface) as IP addresses of the DHCP relay agent.
The IP addresses of the interface connecting to the transport network and the next-hop IP
address of the route to the DHCP server must be on the same network segment.
For details about configuration requirements, see Table 3-3.
l

A base station can serve as the DHCP relay agent for other base stations in the same L2
network. In this case, the DHCP relay agent function must be enabled and the DHCP server
IP addresses of the other base stations must be configured on the base station in question.
The enabling and configuring methods for this base station is the same as those for an upperlevel base station.
NOTE

Cascaded base stations cannot exceed four levels on the chain topology because DHCP packets will
be discarded if the number of DHCP relay agents is greater than four in the transport network.

3.2.6 DHCP Procedure


3.2.6.1 Base Station Identification
Upon receiving a DHCP packet from a base station, the DHCP server finds and sends related
configuration information to the base station based on the base station identification (BS ID)
contained in the DHCP packet.
The U2000 that matches SRAN8.0 or a later version uses the combination of the ESN and slot
number or the combination of the deployment identifier (DID), subrack topology, and slot
number as the BS ID.
Base station controllers and U2000s that match versions earlier than SRAN8.0 use the
combination of the ESN and NE type or the combination of the DID and NE type as the BS ID.
The details about each element in the combinations are as follows:

SingleRAN
Automatic OMCH Establishment Feature Parameter
Description

3 IP-based Automatic OMCH Establishment for Base


Stations

ESN identifies the baseband unit (BBU) backplane of the base station. Each backplane has
a unique ESN. The ESN is reported by the base station.

Deployment ID (DID) is the site identifier planned by the operator. DID is scanned into
the base station using a barcode scanner connected to the USB port of the main control
board during base station deployment. After being scanned into the base station, the DID
is broadcast in all BBUs. All main control boards will record the DID and use it as the BS
ID in the DHCP procedure.

Subrack topology identifies the interconnection relationship between BBU subracks that
are interconnected. The combination of the DID and subrack topology uniquely identifies
a BBU subrack.

Slot number identifies the number of the slot that accommodates the main control board.
The slot number is used to differentiate main control boards in a BBU subrack. If the base
station is configured with active and standby main control boards, the slot number is that
of the active main control board. The slot number is reported by the base station.

NE type indicates whether the base station works in the GSM, UMTS, or LTE mode.

When creating a base station commissioning task by PnP, operators must specify the ESN if the
U2000 uses the combination of the ESN and slot number as the BS ID. The DID must be included
in the base station configuration file if the U2000 uses the combination of the subrack topology
and slot number as the BS ID.
NOTE

A combination of the DID, subrack topology, and slot number can be used as the BS ID only if the
transmission port of the base station is an Ethernet port and the DHCP server of the base station is deployed
on the U2000.

3.2.6.2 Procedure for Obtaining Configuration Information


Procedure for Obtaining Configuration Information with No DHCP Relay Agent
A DHCP client and a DHCP server on the same Layer 2 (L2) network can directly communicate
with each other. The L2 network is a subnet in which broadcast IP packets can be exchanged
and forwarded by Media Access Control (MAC) addresses and VLAN IDs. An example is the
Ethernet or a VLAN of the Ethernet.
Figure 3-6 shows the procedure for a base station to obtain configuration information from a
DHCP server when no DHCP relay agent is deployed.

SingleRAN
Automatic OMCH Establishment Feature Parameter

3 IP-based Automatic OMCH Establishment for Base


Stations

The procedure is as follows: After the base station is powered on, it broadcasts a
DHCPDISCOVER packet with the BS ID. The DHCP server then sends configuration
information to the base station based on the BS ID.

Procedure for Obtaining Configuration Information with a DHCP Relay Agent


If a DHCP server is not deployed on the L2 network of a DHCP client, a DHCP relay agent must
be installed on the next-hop gateway of the DHCP client to forward DHCP packets. The DHCP
relay agent must be on the same L2 network as the DHCP client, and the DHCP server must be
on the Layer 3 (L3) network in which packets are forwarded by IP addresses.
Figure 3-7 shows the procedure for a base station to obtain configuration information from a
DHCP server when a DHCP relay agent is deployed.
Figure 3-7 Procedure for obtaining configuration information with a DHCP relay agent

The procedure is as follows: The DHCP relay agent converts DHCP packets broadcast by the
base station to unicast packets and routes the unicast packets to the DHCP server. The DHCP
server sends unicast response packets to the DHCP relay agent, which then broadcasts received
response packets on the L2 network.

3.2.6.3 Procedure for Releasing Allocated Configuration Information


When a base station obtains configuration information from its U2000 DHCP server and does
not need configuration information allocated by a public DHCP server, the base station sends a
DHCPRELEASE message to the public DHCP server. After receiving the DHCPRELEASE
message, the public DHCP server can redistribute allocated configuration information to other
NEs. Figure 3-8 shows the procedure for releasing allocated configuration information.

Figure 3-8 Procedure for releasing allocated configuration information

NOTE

In addition to the preceding procedures, DHCP also supports the procedure for updating configuration
information. However, base stations in SRAN8.0 do not support the procedure for updating configuration
information.

3.2.7 Automatic DHCP Data Synchronization


Before you use Automatic OMCH Establishment, ensure that correct DHCP data of a base station
is available on the U2000 DHCP server. Any manual modifications to a base station's
transmission configuration data may change its DHCP data on the U2000. In earlier versions,
users have to manually ensure that the DHCP data on the U2000 DHCP server is correct before
the next automatic OMCH establishment procedure starts. As manual data check is a complex
and error-prone process, the automatic DHCP data synchronization function is introduced in this
version.
After the base station is deployed, the system automatically synchronizes manual modifications
to the transmission configuration data in the base station configuration file with the U2000 DHCP
server. This ensures the configuration information consistency between the U2000 DHCP server
and the base station. For manual modifications on a single base station, the system starts data
synchronization 10 minutes after the last manual data modification and completes the
synchronization within 5 minutes. For manual modifications on a number of base stations, the
system starts data synchronization for every 200 base stations as a batch and completes each
batch's synchronization within less than or equal to 30 minutes. DHCP data must be manually
modified on the U2000 GUI.
However, the automatic DHCP data synchronization function does not support automatic
synchronization of the NE name, NE type, ESN, and working mode because they identify a
specific NE.
In addition, this function does not support automatic synchronization of Security Gateway
Emergency Bypass because it must be manually configured.
Automatic DHCP data synchronization supports synchronization of other information on the
U2000 DHCP server. Before starting automatic DHCP data synchronization, ensure that the
related NE data exists in the current data area on the CME.

3.2.8 Schemes for Obtaining VLAN Information for DHCP Packets


Packets sent by a base station on a VLAN-based network must carry the VLAN ID. Before an
OMCH is established, that is, before the base station sends the first DHCP packet, the base station

SingleRAN
Automatic OMCH Establishment Feature Parameter
Description

Stations

must learn VLAN information after it starts. After learning VLAN information by parsing
received Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) packets with VLAN IDs, the base station delivers
DHCP packets with VLAN IDs and interworks with DHCP servers to obtain transmission
configuration information. The procedure for obtaining VLAN information is as follows:
1.

Once the DHCP function is enabled on the base station, the base station starts the VLAN
acquisition process. With VLAN acquisition, the base station actively acquires VLAN IDs
of all received ARP packets and records these VLAN IDs in a PnP VLAN-ID table.

2.

The base station sends DHCP packets without VLAN IDs or DHCP packets with VLAN
IDs set to 0.

3.

The base station waits 20s. If the base station receives a DHCPOFFER packet within 20s,
it exits the DHCP procedure and enters the subsequent PnP deployment procedure.
Otherwise, the base station goes to the next step.

4.

The base station checks the PnP VLAN-ID table and tries to use all acquired VLAN IDs
to send DHCP packets. After that, if the base station receives a valid DHCPOFFER packet,
it exits the DHCP procedure and enters the subsequent PnP deployment procedure.

5.

When the preceding steps fail:


l If the base station has only one transmission port, the base station repeats the preceding
steps on this port.
l If the base station has multiple transmission ports, it repeats the preceding steps on other
transmission ports.

Figure 3-9 shows the procedure for a base station to obtain VLAN information.
Figure 3-9 The procedure for a base station to obtain VLAN information

1.

The U2000 or BSC sends an OMCH establishment request to the OM IP address of the
base station.

2.

To forward the OMCH establishment request to the correct base station, the next-hop
gateway of the base station broadcasts ARP packets to obtain the MAC address mapping
the destination IP address of the request. The next-hop gateway or the L2 network attaches
VLAN IDs to ARP packets so that correct VLAN IDs are contained in the ARP packets
received by the base station.

3.

The base station parses all received ARP packets and records the VLAN IDs contained in
the packets.

4.

The base station attempts to send all DHCP packets with recorded VLAN IDs. Only DHCP
packets with correct VLAN IDs can reach the DHCP relay agent that installed on the nexthop gateway of the DHCP client.

3.2.9 Enabling and Disabling the VLAN Scanning Function


In SRAN7.0, the VLAN scanning function is provided for eNodeBs to solve the problem that
base stations cannot acquire VLAN IDs in secure networking scenarios. After the VLAN
scanning function is enabled, the base station tries to send DHCP packets with random VLAN
IDs if it does not receive a response after sending DHCP packets without a VLAN ID and DHCP
packets with acquired VLAN IDs.
After the VLAN scanning function is enabled, some DHCP packets with invalid VLAN IDs
may be broadcast. In scenarios where different VLANs are not isolated, VLAN scanning imposes
great impacts on the network. Therefore, this function is disabled for base stations of SRAN8.0
or a later version by default. For base stations upgraded from SRAN7.0 to SRAN8.0 or later,
you can run the SET DHCPSW command to enable or disable this function locally or remotely.
Here are a few example MML commands:
//Enabling the VLAN scanning function
SET DHCPSW: SWITCH=ENABLE; VLANSCANSW=ENABLE;
//Disabling the VLAN scanning function
SET DHCPSW: SWITCH=ENABLE; VLANSCANSW=DISABLE;
NOTE

When the OMCH and service channels are disconnected, the SET DHCPSW command is used to
determine whether to start the DHCP procedure automatically to obtain the initial configuration information
or to restore the base station configuration. The SWITCH parameter indicates whether to enable the
function of starting the DHCP procedure automatically. The VLANSCANSW parameter indicates whether
to enable the VLAN scanning function when the base station sends DHCP packets.

3.2.10 Saving VLAN IDs


From SRAN8.0 onwards, VLAN IDs that are used for a successful DHCP procedure can be
saved. Upon receiving a DHCP-ACK message, the base station saves VLAN IDs that are used
for the DHCP procedure. A maximum of eight VLAN IDs can be saved. When saving a new
VLAN ID if eight VLAN IDs have already been saved, the new VLAN ID will replace the
earliest VLAN ID.
The base station can use the saved and learned VLAN IDs to send DHCP packets when
reinitiating a DHCP procedure during or after deployment of the base station.
The saved VLAN IDs will be automatically cleared after the base station experiences a poweroff reset.

is the IP address of the U2000 or BSC and the destination IP address is the OM IP address
of the base station. After the next-hop gateway of the base station receives the request, it
broadcasts ARP packets to the base station to obtain the MAC address mapping the interface
IP address of the base station.
NOTE

l The next-hop gateway of the base station broadcasts ARP packets each time it receives a TCP
connection request sent periodically by the U2000.
l If the Use SSL option on the U2000 is selected, the U2000 periodically sends an SSL-based
OMCH establishment request to the base station. For the automatic OMCH establishment
procedure in this scenario, see the "3.3.4 SSL Authentication on the OMCH" section.
If this option is not selected, the U2000 periodically sends a plaintext-based OMCH establishment
request to the base station.
l During a DHCP procedure, a DHCP response packet sent by the U2000 contains the target RAT
for the base station. Upon detecting an inconsistency between the current and target RATs, the
base station changes its current RAT and then restarts. Afterwards, the base station reinitiates a
DHCP procedure.

2.

The base station obtains VLAN information. For details, see section "3.2.8 Schemes for
Obtaining VLAN Information for DHCP Packets."

3.

The base station first sends DHCP packets with no VLAN ID and then DHCP packets with
VLAN IDs. By exchanging DHCP packets with its next-hop gateway and DHCP server,
the base station obtains the OMCH configuration data and validates the data.

4.

The base station responds to the OMCH establishment request from the U2000 or BSC and
then establishes an OMCH to the U2000 or BSC.
NOTE

If the OMCH fails to be established, the base station automatically restarts the automatic OMCH establishment
procedure.

3.3.3 Configuration Requirements for the DHCP Server


The DHCP server of a base station must be configured with the following: A route to the IP
address of the DHCP relay agent. Parameters to be used during the DHCP procedure. These
parameters are contained in the DHCP packet headers, Option fields defined by RFC 2132, and
subcodes of Option 43 defined by Huawei. Table 3-4 lists the parameters to be contained in the
DHCP packet headers. Table 3-5 describes common Option fields. Table 3-6 provides subcode
information in the Option 43 field.

3 IP-based Automatic OMCH Establishment for Base


Stations

When creating a base station commissioning by PnP task on the U2000, deployment engineers
can import configuration information listed in Table 3-6 into the DHCP server Deployment
engineers can manually modify the configuration information for the DHCP server only on the
U2000 GUI. Deployment may fail if the DHCP server is not configured with mandatory
parameters listed in Table 3-6 or optional parameters that must be configured in certain
scenarios.

3.3.4 SSL Authentication on the OMCH


If an OMCH uses SSL authentication, the base station must obtain an operator-issued device
certificate before establishing the OMCH with the U2000. Figure 3-12 shows the automatic
OMCH establishment procedure in this scenario.
Figure 3-12 Automatic OMCH establishment procedure

1.

After a PnP-based commissioning task is created on the U2000, the U2000 periodically
sends SSL-based OMCH establishment requests to the base station.
The source and destination IP addresses of the request packets are the IP address of the
U2000 and the O&M IP address of the base station, respectively.
Upon receiving the requests, the next-hop gateway of the base station sends ARP broadcast
packets to the base station to parse the MAC address corresponding to the interface IP
address of the base station.

2.

The base station obtains VLAN information.


For details, see section "3.2.8 Schemes for Obtaining VLAN Information for DHCP
Packets."

3.

The base station attempts to first send DHCP packets without VLAN IDs and then DHCP
packets with VLAN IDs. By exchanging the DHCP packets with the DHCP server, the base
station obtains OMCH configurations and makes them take effect.

4.

Based on the CA information obtained from the DHCP server, the base station applies for
an operator-issued device certificate from the CA. For details, see the "3.3.5 Obtaining an
Operator-Issued Device Certificate" section.

5.

In response to the OMCH establishment requests from the U2000, the base station performs
mutual authentication with the U2000 using the obtained device certificate. After the
authentication is successful, an OMCH is established between them.

3.3.5 Obtaining an Operator-Issued Device Certificate


After obtaining the interface IP address and CA information, the base station generates a
certificate request file. The base station then uses this certificate request file to apply for an
operator-issued device certificate from the CA (obtained through the DHCP procedure) based
on CMPv2.
During the certificate application, the CA authenticates the base station by verifying its Huaweiissued device certificate. Before delivery, Huawei base stations are preconfigured with Huaweiissued device certificates, which are deployed on the UMPT and the LMPT (available from
SRAN7.0 onwards). During the certification application, the base station provides the CA with
Huawei-issued device certificates as its identity. The CA is also preconfigured with the Huawei
root certificate.
Before the certificate application, the base station obtains from the DHCP server partial
configuration data (such as the URL of the CA and the CA name) rather than the configuration
file. Therefore, the base station uses the default parameters described in Table 3-8 to complete
the certificate application. The base station cannot contain parameters other than those listed in
the table during the certification application or in the certificate request files.
NOTE

For details about the certificate application procedure, see the "Certificate Management and Application
Scenarios" part in PKI Feature Parameter Description for SingleRAN.
PKI redundancy is not supported during base station deployment by PnP. The active PKI server must work
properly during base station deployment by PnP.

3.4 Automatic OMCH Establishment by the Separate-MPT


Multimode Base Station
3.4.1 Networking
The separate-MPT multimode base station is similar to many single-mode base stations that are
interconnected using the transmission board. The interconnection can either be based on the
panel or the backplane. Generally, the transmission board of a certain mode provides a shared
transmission interface for connecting to the transport network. The base station in this mode is
called an upper-level base station, and base stations in the other modes are called lower-level
base stations. The upper-level base station acts as the DHCP relay agent of lower-level base
stations.
Figure 3-13 shows the OMCH networking for the separate-MPT multimode base station that
uses panel-based interconnection. The upper-level base station provides two transmission
interfaces, one for panel-based interconnection (lower transmission interface) and the other for
connecting to the transport network (upper transmission interface).
Figure 3-13 OMCH networking for the separate-MPT multimode base station that uses panelbased interconnection

Figure 3-14 shows the OMCH networking for the separate-MPT multimode base station that
uses backplane-based interconnection.

The automatic OMCH establishment procedure for the separate-MPT base station is similar to
the respective automatic OMCH establishment procedure for each single-mode base station.
Lower-level base stations can start the automatic OMCH establishment procedure only after the
upper-level base station completes the procedure. This section describes the differences in the
procedures between the separate-MPT base station and the single-mode base station.

3.4.2 Automatic OMCH Establishment Procedure


Figure 3-15 shows the automatic OMCH establishment procedure for the separate-MPT
multimode base station.
Figure 3-15 Automatic OMCH establishment procedure

Issue 01 (2014-04-30)

Same as the single-mode base station, the upper-level base station follows the OMCH
establishment procedure described in chapter "3.3 Automatic OMCH Establishment by
the Single-mode Base Station and Co-MPT Multimode Base Station." The upper-level
base station then obtains software and configuration files from the U2000 or BSC over the
established OMCH. The upper-level base station activates software and configuration files
and then enters the working state.

2.

Each lower-level base station exchanges DHCP packets with the DHCP relay agent (upperlevel base station) and the DHCP server to obtain the transmission configuration
information.

3.

Each lower-level base station establishes an OMCH to the U2000 or BSC.

The DHCP servers of the upper-level base station and lower-level base stations can be deployed
on the same NE or different NEs.

3.4.3 Configuration Requirements for the DHCP Server


Each mode in a separate-MPT multimode base station has almost the same configuration
requirements for the DHCP server as a single-mode base station. The only difference lies in the
setting of the OM Bearing Board parameter on DHCP servers of lower-level base stations, as
described in Table 3-10. For details about the configuration requirements for the DHCP server
of each single-mode base station, see chapter "3.3 Automatic OMCH Establishment by the
Single-mode Base Station and Co-MPT Multimode Base Station".

3.4.4 Configuration Requirements for Network Equipment


Each mode in a separate-MPT multimode base station has similar configuration requirements
for network equipment to a single-mode base station. For details about these requirements, see
chapter "3.3 Automatic OMCH Establishment by the Single-mode Base Station and CoMPT Multimode Base Station". This section describes only the differences in the configuration
requirements.
The upper-level base station acts as the DHCP relay agent to forward DHCP packets and as a
router to forward OMCH and service packets for lower-level base stations. The transport network
for the upper-level base station needs to forward DHCP packets from the DHCP servers of lowerlevel base stations. Therefore, the upper-level base station and its transport network must be
configured with data listed in Table 1.

Lower-level base stations

Is configured with routes to the U2000 or


BSC.
Is configured with interface IP addresses that
are on the same network segment with IP
addresses of the interfaces for
interconnection with the upper-level base
stations.

Backplane-based interconnection:
The IP addresses of the DHCP relay agent are as follows:
1. OM IP address of the upper-level base station
2. IP addresses of the upper transmission interface on the upper-level base station. If there
are several IP addresses of the upper transmission interface, the IP address used as the IP
address of the DHCP relay agent must be on the same network segment as the next-hop IP
address of the upper-level base station's route to the DHCP server of the lower-level base
station.

Panel-based interconnection:
The IP addresses of the DHCP relay agent are as follows:
1. OM IP address of the upper-level base station
2. IP addresses of the lower transmission interface on the upper-level base station. If there
are several addresses of the lower transmission interface, the IP addresses used as the IP
addresses of the DHCP relay agent vary by scenario:
If VLANs have been deployed for neither the OMCH nor the service channel on the
lower-level base station, the IP addresses of the lower transmission interface that is not
configured with VLANs are used.
If VLANs have been deployed for both the OMCH and the service channel on the lowerlevel base station, the IP address of the interface that is used by the OMCH to deploy
VLANs is used.
If VLANs have been deployed for the service channel but not for the OMCH on the
lower-level base station, the IP addresses of the interface where no VLAN has been
deployed are used.

In both backplane- and panel-based interconnection scenarios, if there are active and standby
OMCHs on the upper-level base station, the OM IP address in use will be used as the IP address
of the DHCP relay agent. For example, if the OM IP address of the standby OMCH is in use, it
will be used as the IP address of the DHCP relay agent.

3.5 Application Restrictions


3.5.1 Configuration Requirements for Base Stations and Other
Network Equipment
When a base station is to be deployed by PnP, configuration requirements for the base station
and related DHCP servers must be met to ensure successful automatic OMCH establishment. If
configuration requirements are not met, automatic OMCH establishment may fail, leading to a
deployment failure.Table 3-12 through Table 3-13 summarizes the configuration requirements.

active OMCH is used for
base station deployment by
PnP. The active OMCH is the
OMCH for which the Flag
parameter is set to MASTER
(Master).
The active OMCH must meet
the following requirements:
l If the active OMCH is
bound to a route:
The PEERIP parameter
must be set to the IP
address of the U2000. The
IP addresses of the U2000
and the FTP server must
be on the network
segment that is
collectively specified by
the PEERIP and
PEERMASK parameters.
l If the active OMCH is not
bound to any route:
The FTP server and the
U2000 must be deployed
on the same equipment or
network segment. The
PEERIP parameter must
be set to the IP address of
the U2000. The IP
addresses of the U2000

The base station must be
configured with a route
whose destination IP
address is the network
segment of its peer IP
address.

If BBUs are interconnected,
the OMCH must be

connecting to the transport
network.

VLANMAP

It is recommended that
upper- and lower-level base
stations use the SingleVLAN
mode instead of the
VLANGroup mode to
configure VLANs. If base
stations are cascaded and the
upper-level base station uses
the VLANGroup mode, the
upper-level base station must
attach related VLAN IDs to
services of the OM_HIGH
and OM_LOW types when
configuring VLANCLASS.
If the lower-level base station
is a GBTS, the upper-level
base station must attach
related VLAN IDs to services
of the USERDATA type with
the differentiated services
code point (DSCP) set to the
same value as the DSCP of
the GBTS OMCH.
The VLANMODE parameter
specifies the VLAN mode.

SN

Requirement

The public DHCP server can be configured


with a maximum of eight U2000 DHCP
server IP addresses.
If base stations of SRAN7.0, SRAN8.0, and
later versions co-exist in a network,
configuring eight U2000 DHCP server IP
addresses on the public DHCP server causes
a deployment failure because SRAN7.0 base
stations support only two U2000 DHCP
server IP addresses. In this scenario,
configure two U2000 DHCP server IP
addresses or deploy SRAN7.0 base stations
in non-PnP mode.

If the WMPT board of the NodeB needs to be


replaced with the UMPT board, the BS ID
configured on the DHCP server must be
changed from being bound to the panel's ESN
(mapping subcode 43 in DHCP Option 43) to
being bound to the backplane's ESN
(mapping subcode 1 in DHCP Option 43).

3.5.2 Impact of U2000 Deployment on Base Station Deployment by


PnP
During base station deployment by PnP and subsequent commissioning, the base station needs
to communicate with many application services of the U2000, including the DHCP service, FTP
service, and OMCH management service.
The preceding three services can be deployed on different U2000s and use different IP addresses.
Therefore, network planning and base station data configuration must ensure normal
communication between the OM IP address of the base station and the IP addresses of the three
services.
Table 3-14 describes the impact of U2000 deployment on automatic OMCH establishment.

For example:
l

When the U2000 uses the multi-server load-sharing (SLS) networking, the DHCP service
is deployed on the master server, whereas the FTP service and the OMCH management
service can be deployed on either the master or slave server. When the FTP service and
OMCH management service are deployed on different U2000 servers and accordingly use
different IP addresses, the route configuration on the base station and the transport network
must ensure that the IP addresses of the two services are reachable using configured routes.

OMCH networking requires that the NAT server be deployed only on the U2000 side, but not
the base station or BSC side. Figure 3-18 shows the OMCH networking in which the NAT server
is deployed on the U2000 side.
Figure 3-18 OMCH networking when the NAT server is deployed on the U2000

The IP address and port number of the U2000 can be converted by the NAT. Therefore, the route
whose destination IP address is the U2000 IP address on the base station side must use an U2000
IP address visible on the base station side as the destination address. As shown in Figure
3-18, the local IP address configured for the U2000 is 10.20.0.1. After the conversion performed
by the NAT server, however, the source IP address in TCP packets received by the base station
is 10.10.1.1 instead of 10.20.0.1. Therefore, the route whose destination IP address is 10.10.1.1
instead of 10.20.0.1 must be configured on the base station side.
NOTE

The IP address and port number on the base station side cannot be converted by the NAT because the DHCP
server uses the IP address of the DHCP relay agent (giaddr) or IP address of the DHCP client (ciaddr) as
the destination IP address for responding to the DHCP message and the giaddr or ciaddr fields contained
in the DHCP message cannot be converted by the NAT.

ATM-based Automatic OMCH

Establishment for Base Stations

4.1 Overview
ATM-based automatic OMCH establishment for Base Stations (corresponding to feature
WRFD-031100 BOOTP) is used for the bootstrap of diskless workstations. It enables the diskless
workstation to obtain the IP address from the server during the startup. Compared with the
Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) that implements the same function, BOOTP is
more versatile and easier to use. BOOTP complies with the RFC 951 and RFC 1542 protocols.
BOOTP that is applied to the RAN system enables the NodeB to establish an IPoA path based
on the obtained IP address and default PVC. In this way, a remote OM channel can be set up
between the NodeB and the U2000 or LMT.
The NodeB configuration data normally contains the data of the IPoA path. If the data is correct,
the user can remotely access and maintain the NodeB. If the data is incorrect, BOOTP helps the
NodeB to establish a correct IPoA path so that the NodeB can be remotely maintained.

4.2 Principles
BOOTP is used in ATM networking to establish an IPoA path so that a remote OM channel
from the U2000 or LMT to the NodeB can be set up.
The configuration data required for setting up an IPoA path includes the Permanent Virtual
Channel (PVC), transport ports carrying the PVC, and IP addresses.
The procedure of BOOTP establishment consists of port listening, port configuration, PVC setup
and BOOTP request initiation, RNC returning the BOOTPREPLY message, and IPoA
configuration, as shown in Figure 4-1.

4.2.1 Port Listening


Port listening enables the NodeB to listen to the configuration data of peer ports so that the
NodeB transport ports that carry PVCs can be correctly configured.
The prerequisites for port listening are as follows: The physical links must be connected properly.
(If a link works abnormally, ports are not configured on this link.); the transport ports of other
transport devices connecting the RNC and the NodeB must be correctly configured.
The port types applied to ATM networking are as follows:
l

Inverse Multiplexing over ATM (IMA)

User Network Interface (UNI)

Fractional ATM

Unchannelized STM-1/OC-3

The procedure of BOOTP establishment is different in the case of different port types. For the
unchannelized STM-1/OC-3 ports, the PVC can be set up without port listening as
interconnection is not involved. The following describes the port listening function in the case
of IMA, UNI, and fractional ATM.

Description

Port Listening in the Case of IMA/UNI


Through IMA/UNI ports, the NodeB can obtain the configuration data from peer ports by
listening to the IMA Control Protocol (ICP) cells of the peer end. According to the obtained
configuration data, the NodeB sets up an IMA group that carries the PVC (including the IMA
links in the IMA group) or UNI links.
The NodeB first tries to listen to the IMA/UNI ports because whether the IMA/UNI ports or
fractional ATM ports are used cannot be determined initially. If the listening fails, the NodeB
listens to the fractional ATM ports.

Port Listening in the Case of Fractional ATM


The fractional ATM link requires a bitmap of all types of timeslots contained in the link. If the
timeslots are inconsistent at the two ends, the setup of a fractional ATM link will fail.
Listening to the timeslots by using the exhaustive method will be time-consuming because the
combinations of timeslots are countless. To prevent this problem, the range of timeslot
combinations needs to be minimized. The combinations need to contain only the typical timeslot
bitmaps commonly used by the telecom operators.
To listen to fractional ATM links is to apply the exhaustive method to these typical timeslot
bitmaps, which is a way to configure the fractional ATM links. If the links work properly, the
listening is successful; if the links work abnormally, it indicates that the timeslot bitmap does
not match the configuration at the peer end, and the NodeB needs to try other timeslot bitmaps.
The NodeB first uses the E1 timeslot bitmaps to listen to the ports, because whether the physical
links connected to the NodeB are E1s or T1s cannot be determined initially. If the listening fails,
the NodeB uses the T1 timeslot bitmaps to listen to the ports.
After the listening is successful, the PVC can be set up.

4.2.2 Port Configuration


The NodeB configures its IMA or UNI ports based on the configuration data of the ports at the
peer end. The configuration parameters of the peer ports, obtained through port listening, include
protocol version number and IMA frame length.

4.2.3 PVC Setup and BOOTP Request Initiation


The PVC used by BOOTP is permanently 1/33, that is, its Virtual Path Identifier (VPI) is set to
1 and Virtual Channel Identifier (VCI) is set to 33. Such a PVC needs to be configured at the
RNC or at the ATM network equipment. The BOOTP process is implemented on this PVC.
After the PVC is set up, the NodeB issues a BOOTPREQUEST message on this PVC to request
the RNC to assign an IP address. The IP address will be used as the OM address of the NodeB.
This IP address can be used for logging in to the NodeB and be used for maintenance purposes.

4.2.4 RNC Returning the BOOTREPLY Message


The prerequisite for the RNC to respond to the BOOTPREQUEST message is that the RNC has
configured a PVC (fixed to 1/33) for the related NodeB and has obtained the corresponding IP
addresses.

Stations

On receipt of the BOOTPREQUEST message, the RNC replies with a BOOTPREPLY message
containing the assigned IP address. The message is transmitted over the established PVC (fixed
to 1/33).

4.2.5 IPoA Configuration


After receiving the BOOTPREPLY message from the RNC, the NodeB configures an IPoA
path, which finalizes the BOOTP implementation process.

4.3 Configuration Guidelines


In the IP network, For details about data to prepare before a base station starts the automatic
operation and maintenance channel (OMCH) establishment procedure, see 3900 Series Base
Station Initial Configuration Guide. For details about software and configuration file
downloading, activation, and commissioning on a base station after the automatic OMCH
establishment procedure is complete, see 3900 Series Base Station Commissioning Guide.
The following describes how to configure BOOTP in an ATM network.

Configuring BOOTP on the RNC Side in an ATM Network


On the RNC side, run the ADD IPOAPVC command to configure the PVC. When using
BOOTP, the PVC is to be configured with VPI = 1 and VCI = 33. The main parameters of this
command are as follows:
l

CARRYVPI: This parameter specifies the VPI value of the PVC. It is set to 1.

CARRYVCI: This parameter specifies the VCI value of the PVC. It is set to 33.

IPADDR: This parameter specifies the local IP address.

PEERIPADDR: This parameter specifies the IP address of the peer end, that is, IP address
of the NodeB.

On the RNC side, run the ADD UNODEBIP command to configure the IP address of the OM
channel. The main parameter of this command is as follows:
NBATMOAMIP: This parameter specifies the OM IP address of the NodeB in ATM networking.
NBCTRLSN: This parameter specifies the main control board slot number of the NodeB. When
there are multiple main control boards in a base station, the RNC compares the slot number of
a main control board reported in the BOOTP process with the slot number specified by users. If
the reported and specified slot numbers are the same, the RNC returns a BOOTPREPLY message
to the base station.

Configuring BOOTP on the NodeB Side in an ATM Network


The BOOTP process can be implemented without any NodeB configuration data, and therefore
it is unnecessary to configure BOOTP on the NodeB side.

5.1 Introduction
In TDM networking, the protocol stack on the Abis interface is as follows:
l

Physical layer: Data is carried over E1/T1 links.

Data link layer: High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) is used.

Application layer: link access procedure on the D channel (LAPD) is used. LAPD includes
layer 2 management link (L2ML), OML, radio signaling link (RSL), and extended signaling
link (ESL).

Figure 5-1 shows the protocol stack on the Abis interface in TDM networking.
Figure 5-1 Protocol stack on the Abis interface in TDM networking

OML timeslot detection in TDM networking applies to the GBTS in Abis over TDM mode. This
function is used to establish an OMCH (that is, an OML) between the GBTS and BSC.

5.2 Process
As shown in Figure 5-2, the process of OML timeslot detection in TDM networking consists
of two procedures: sending L2ML establishment requests and saving detection information.

Figure 5-2 Process of OML timeslot detection in TDM networking

5.2.1 Sending L2ML Establishment Requests


The procedure for sending L2ML establishment requests is as follows:
1.

The GBTS determines whether an E1 or T1 link is used for OML timeslot detection based
on the DIP switch of the main control board.

2.

To establish an OML to the BSC, the GBTS attempts to send L2ML establishment requests
based on certain combinations of bandwidths and E1/T1 ports that support OML timeslot
detection.

OML timeslot detection in TDM networking requires 64 kbit/s or 16 kbit/s bandwidth and can
be implemented on E1/T1 ports 0 and 1 of the main control board. Therefore, there are four
possible combinations, which the GBTS tries in the following order:
1.

E1/T1 port 0, 64 kbit/s bandwidth

2.

E1/T1 port 0, 16 kbit/s bandwidth

3.

E1/T1 port 1, 64 kbit/s bandwidth

4.

E1/T1 port 1, 16 kbit/s bandwidth

If the 64 kbit/s bandwidth is used:


l

For an E1 link, the GBTS sends L2ML establishment requests over 64 kbit/s timeslots 1
through 31.

For a T1 link, the GBTS sends L2ML establishment requests over 64 kbit/s timeslots 1
through 24.

If the 16 kbit/s bandwidth is used:

SingleRAN
Automatic OMCH Establishment Feature Parameter
Description

5 TDM-based Base Station Automatic OMCH Establishment

For an E1 link, the GBTS sends L2ML establishment requests over the third 16 kbit/s subtimeslots of 64 kbit/s timeslots 1 through 31.

For a T1 link, the GBTS sends L2ML establishment requests over the third 16 kbit/s subtimeslots of 64 kbit/s timeslots 1 through 24.

Upon receiving an L2ML establishment request, the BSC selects a 64 kbit/s timeslot or a 16
kbit/s sub-timeslot based on base station configurations, and responds to the request. By default,
the BSC selects the last 64 kbit/s timeslot of an E1/T1 link, or the third 16 kbit/s sub-timeslot
of the last 64 kbit/s timeslot. The last 64 kbit/s timeslot is timeslot 31 for an E1 link and timeslot
24 for a T1 link.
If the last 64 kbit/s timeslot or the third 16 kbit/s sub-timeslot of the last 64 kbit/s timeslot cannot
carry an OML, run the SET BTSOMLTS command on the BSC LMT to set the timeslot that
is used to carry the OML, and run the SET BTSOMLDETECT command to set the OML
timeslot detection function.
Upon receiving a correct response over a timeslot, the GBTS uses the timeslot to carry the OML.
Otherwise, the GBTS attempts to establish an OML on other ports or timeslots.

5.2.2 Saving Detection Information


The GBTS saves the combination of the bandwidth and E1/T1 port number that was used for
the previous successful L2ML establishment. Upon the next startup, the GBTS preferentially
uses the saved combination for OML establishment, which reduces the startup time.
