Work Responsibility- Work Flow


Relationship
Description

When doing some work, everyone does it in a certain way and in


a certain order until the work is finished. If everyone works in
their own ways, it is possible that the work effectiveness is
different, or even that incorrect operations bring losses.
Therefore, it is necessary to work out a work flow that can
standardize the operators behaviors to guarantee consistent
work efficiency.
The work responsibility of the person who uses the document is
specified in the carrier management rules. There is a one-to-one
correspondence between the work flow and the work
responsibility.

Work Flow
Design

The purpose of designing the work flow is to complete the work


in the optimized order to guarantee consistent work result and
the highest work efficiency.
The work flow is designed based on clear work responsibility.
The procedure to design the work flow is as follows:
1. Analyze post responsibility.
2. Divide the work procedure into several steps that can bring
about a certain result.
3. Perform peer review.
4. Verify the flow.
5. Determine and release the flow.

Tip: Some steps in the flow can be omitted in some cases.

Work Flow User Document


Relationship
Description

Every step in a work flow needs to be implemented by the


specific personnel. The executors should have sufficient level of
skills and knowledge to implement each step. However, there
are no detailed implementing instructions inferred from the flow
itself.
Serving engineers at different posts, user documents provide
guidance and reference information for the executors (usually
different kinds of engineers) to implement each step in the work
flow. By reading product manuals, the executors can improve
their skills and enhance their knowledge levels. Therefore, the
high work efficiency can be guaranteed.

Work FlowUser Document


Relation
Design

As for the relationship between the work flow and the user
documents, simply speaking, the user documents provide direct
or
indirect
guidance
and
reference
information
for
implementation of each step in the work flow. A full
understanding of the relationship between the work flow and the
user document helps readers to select the related documents to
read to enhance their work efficiency.
The relationship between the engineering flow and the user
document can be designed in light of the work steps determined
in the work flow and based on the above-mentioned relationship.
The designed procedure is as follows:
1. Analyze the required skills and knowledge level of the person
who implements each step.
2. Find user documents that can improve the skills and
knowledge level of executors.

Example

The following introduces the user documents that may be


referred during alarm handling, by taking an example, where
maintenance engineers handles common alarms, as shown in
Figure 2.

Tip: The above flow only covers general operations of


maintenance engineers. If the maintenance engineers are very
familiar with the product, it may be unnecessary for them to
refer to any user document.

It can be inferred from this flow that maintenance engineers can


refer to one or several kinds of user documents during the

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION

21

ZXWN MSCS MSC Server Guide to Documentation

process of handling alarms. This flow clearly represents the


relationship between the user documents and the work flow.
Since there are so many works, and the work flow varies with
different posts, readers can design the relationship between the
work flow and the user documents based on those work flows
that they are familiar with. Readers should learn more about the
documents, and store them well for quick reference at key time.

Reading Guide
Overview
Description

Uses have their own purpose when reading any one of user
documents. If uses have a clear purpose and select the
appropriate document, then they can get twice the result with
half the effort.
From the perspectives of various purposes, some manuals for
reading and reference are recommended in the following topics.

relations among NEs, and among units in a NE. The equipment
controls the running of the NE based on these relations.
Configuration data are very important. Once they are wrong, the
system can not work normally, and even can not provide

Glossary
3G

3G refers to next generation of mobile communication systems.


These offer enhanced services, such as multimedia and video.
Main 3G technologies include UMTS and CDMA2000.

3GPP

3GPP was formed in December 1998 as a collaboration


agreement bringing together a number of telecommunication
standards bodies. These standards bodies are referred to as
Organizational Partners. Aim of 3GPP was to produce globally
applicable technical specifications for third generation mobile
systems based on evolved GSM Core Networks and the radio
access technology Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (UTRAN).

3GPP2

3GPP2 is a sister project to 3GPP and is a collaboration


agreement regarding third generation mobile networks. It is
comprised of five Standards Development Organizations similar
to Organizational Partners in 3GPP. 3GPP2 mainly deals with the
following five areas: A-interface system, CDMA2000, American
National Standards Institute-41 (ANSI-41), wireless packet data
inter-working, and services & systems aspects.

Access Point

An Access Point is a network device which provides the point of


interconnection between wireless station (laptop computer, PDA)
and wired network.

Bearer Service

Bearer Service is a type of telecommunication service that

provides the capability for transmission of signals between


access points.

Broadband

Broadband in radio systems identifies a type of communication


channel capable of carrying a large portion of electromagnetic
spectrum. It may also be applied to fixed communication
systems when referring to bearers capable of carrying high
volumes of traffic.

FTP

A client server application protocol using well known ports 20


and 21. It uses the services of Transmission Control Protocol
(TCP) to provide reliability in the transfer of data files between
network nodes. FTP was first defined as a standard in Request
for Comments (RFC 959).

GE

Gigabit Ethernet (GE) is the Ethernet standard offering Gigabit


services and typically employs fibre. This technology has been
used for backbone networks and desktops for high end servers
and intensive graphical applications.

Handoff or
Handover

A Handoff, or Handover, is the process in which a cellular phone


is handed from one cell to the next in order to maintain a radio
connection with the network

International Mobile Subscriber Identity is a unique identifier


allocated to each mobile subscriber in a GSM and UMTS network.
It consists of a Mobile Country Code (MCC), a Mobile Network
Code (MNC) and a Mobile Station Identification Number (MSIN).

ISUP

ISDN User Part is part of the SS7 protocol layer and used in
setting up, management, and release of trunks that carry voice
and data between calling and called parties.

Iu-CS

This is the interface in UMTS which links the Radio Network


Controller with MSC Server.

Iu-PS

This is the interface in UMTS which links the RNC with SGSN.

LAI

Location Area Identity uniquely identifies a Location Area (LA)


within any Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN). It is comprised of
the Mobile Country Code (MCC), Mobile Network Code (MNC)
and the Location Area Code (LAC).

MAC Address

MAC address refers to hardware address and uniquely identifies


a device within a defined network area.

MSISDN

Mobile Station ISDN (MSISDN) Number is the standard


international telephone number used to identify a given
subscriber.
MSISDN
is
based
on
the
International
Telecommunications Union-Telecommunication Standardization
Sector (ITU-T) E.164 standard.

MSRN

Mobile Station Roaming Number is an E.164 defined telephone


number used to route telephone calls in a mobile network from a
Gateway Mobile Switching Centre (GMSC) to the target MSC.

MTP

Message Transfer Part forms part of the SS7 protocol stack and
provides reliable routing usually within a network.

Network
Management

A set of procedures, software, equipment etc in order to keep a


network operating in an efficient manner. ITU-T have developed
a series of standards for Network Management which are
referred to as the Telecommunication Management Network
(TMN). This sub-divides Network Management into the following
five categories; Fault, Configuration, Performance, Accounting
and Security.

Node B

Node B is the function within the UMTS network that provides


physical radio link between User Equipment (UE) and the
network.

Physical
Channel

A physical channel supports physical media, usually in an


encoded format. This may be pulses of light, a modulated
voltage or radio waves.

Protocol Stack

Conceptual model of layered architecture of communication


protocols in which, layers within a station are represented in
hierarchical order. Each layer in the protocol stack is defined in
generic terms describing functionality and mode of operation.

Glossary

QoS

Performance of a communications channel or system is usually


expressed in terms of Quality of Service (QoS). Depending upon
the communication system, QoS may relate to service
performance, Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), Bit Error Ratio (BER),
maximum and mean throughput rate, reliably, priority and other
factors specific to each service.

Radio Access
Network

Radio Access Network (RAN) performs the radio functionality of


network, as well providing connection to Core Network. RAN
typically includes a controller Radio Network Controller (RNC) in
3GPP and BSC in 3GPP2 and several transmitter/receivers Node
B in 3GPP, BTS in 3GPP2.

RANAP

Radio Access Network Application Part (RANAP) is used in a


UMTS system on the Iu interface. It is responsible for function
including setting up of a Radio Access Bearer (RAB) between the
Core Network and RNC.

SCCP

Signalling Connection Control Part is used to provide a means for


the transfer of messages between any two signalling points in
the same or different SS7 networks.

SCTP

Streaming Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) is a reliable


transport protocol operating on top of IP. It provides
acknowledged error free non duplicated transfer of data. STCP
also detects data corruption, loss of data and duplication of data
by using checksums and sequence numbers.

Signaling
Gateway

A Signaling Gateway is used to support the transport of


signalling traffic received from one network and passed into
another network.

TMSI

In order to ensure subscriber identity confidentiality VLR and


SGSN may allocate Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identities
(TMSI) to visiting mobile subscribers. VLR and SGSN must be
capable of correlating an allocated TMSI with IMSI of MS to
which it is allocated. A MS may be allocated two TMSI, one for
services provided through VLR, and the other known as the
Packet TMSI (P-TMSI) services provided through the SGSN.

TUP

Telephone User Part was an earlier implementation of SS7 that


did not allow for data type applications, hence the introduction
of ISDN User Part (ISUP).

UMTS

A 3G mobile communications system which provides an


enhanced range of multimedia services. UMTS will speed
convergence between telecommunications, IT, media and
content industries to deliver new services and create fresh
revenue generating opportunities. UMTS will deliver low cost,
high capacity mobile communications offering data rates as high
as 2Mbps under stationary conditions with global roaming and
other advanced capabilities. The specifications defining UMTS
are formulated by 3GPP.

VCI

The identifier in ATM cell header that identifies to which virtual


channel the cell belongs.

WAP

A standard designed to allow the content of Internet to be


viewed on the screen of a mobile device such as mobile phones,

personal organisers and pagers. WAP also overcomes the


processing limitation of such devices. Information and services
available are stripped down to their basic text format.
