Technical Description

3 Logical Structure

In a co-MPT base station, the BTS node manages the software and hardware platforms.
Resources can be shared or used independently for each Service to achieve flexible resource
scheduling and allocation. This facilitates the evolution of multimode base stations.
In a co-MPT base station, different modes can be flexibly combined to implement GSM, UMTS,
LTE FDD, and LTE TDD single-mode base stations, GU, GL, and UL dual-mode base stations,
GUL triple-mode base stations, and GULT four-mode base stations.

NOTICE
If operations that affect services are performed on the shared resources, services of modes that
share these resources will be affected. These operations include parameter adjustments, resets,
board additions and removals, power-off, blocking, loopbacks, offline tests, offline performance
tests, and software upgrades and rollbacks.

3.3.2 Separate-MPT Base Stations


In a separate-MPT 3900 series base station, services of each mode are deployed on its own BTS
node and managed by the operation and maintenance center (OMC) through its own O&M
channel.
The following figure shows a 3900 series base station with separate-MPT.

In a separate-MPT base station, each mode has an independent software platform and an
independent hardware platform. However, these modes can still share part of the resources, such

as site devices, cabinets, the BBU, transmission resources, clocks, RF modules, and the antenna
system. The more the resources are shared, the more each Service depends on each other. The
less the resources are shared, the less each Service depends on each other. The BTS nodes
communicate with each other through the Itf_RBS_MRI interface to negotiate how to allocate
shared resources and prevent resource conflicts.
In a separate-MPT base station, the four modes can be flexibly combined to implement GSM,
UMTS, LTE FDD, and LTE TDD single-mode base stations, GU, GL, and UL dual-mode base
stations, GUL triple-mode base stations, and GULT four-mode base stations.

Different Deployment of GBTS Service


GBTS Service can be deployed in two ways: 3900 GSM and 3900 (Co-MPT). The following
figure shows the differences between 3900 GSM and 3900 (Co-MPT).
Figure 3-5 Differences between 3900 GSM and 3900 (Co-MPT)

3900 GSM: The base stations are managed by the OMC through the O&M interface on the BSC.
The BSC together with the base stations under this BSC are displayed as an independent NE on
the OMC interface. The base stations are not independent NEs.
3900 (Co-MPT): The base stations are directly managed by the OMC and function as
independent NEs. The base stations now independently manage changes in product forms,
hardware configuration, networking capability and specifications of RF modules. Moreover,
GSM, UMTS, and LTE base stations have unified O&M methods. This facilitates the evolution
of multimode base stations.

Special Type of Separate-MPT 3900 Series Base Stations


If UMTS and LTE services are to be deployed in a 3900 GSM base station, the following special
type of separate-MPT base stations can be used to achieve high service integration through coMPT without changing the existing base stations.
Figure 3-6 Special type of separate-MPT 3900 series base stations

Management Method of Shared Resources


In a separate-MPT multimode base station where multiple modes share resources, the shared
resources must be managed.
There are two methods of managing the shared resources:
l

Unilateral management: The shared resources are managed by only one mode.

Multilateral management: The shared resources are collectively managed by multiple


modes.

NOTICE
If operations that affect services are performed on the shared resources, services of modes that
share these resources will be affected. These operations include parameter adjustments, resets,
board additions and removals, power-off, blocking, loopbacks, offline tests, offline performance
tests, and software upgrades and rollbacks.
The following table lists differences between unilateral management and multilateral
management.

Function

Unilateral Management

Multilateral Management

Configuration
management

Only one mode is configured with


resource sharing parameters.
Other modes can use the shared
resources without being
configured.

Multiple modes are configured with


resource sharing parameters and these
parameters must have consistent
configurations to prevent resource
conflicts. The multi-node OMC
configuration tool can automatically
associate with the shared resources to
ensure consistent parameter
configuration.

Fault
management

Only one mode reports, locates,


and clears alarms related to the
shared resources. Other modes
report alarms related to resources
that depend on the shared
resources.

Multiple modes report alarms related


to the shared resources. On the multinode OMC alarm management tool,
the O&M personnel can specify a mode
to locate and clear the reported alarms
while alarms reported by other modes
are shielded.

Performance
management

Only one mode reports


performance measurement results
of the shared resources.

Multiple modes report performance


measurement results of the shared
resources.

Software
management

Only one mode manages the


resource sharing software.

Multiple modes manage the resource


sharing software. The O&M personnel
can grant loading control rights to one
mode to perform software upgrades
and rollback. Loading control rights
can be automatically configured by the
multi-node OMC software
management tool if the base station
uses Huawei standard version
mapping. Loading control rights must
be manually configured if the base
station uses non-standard Huawei
version mapping.

Inventory
management

Only one mode reports the


inventory information about the
shared resources.

Multiple modes report the inventory


information about the shared
resources. The multi-node OMC
software management tool can
automatically associate with the
inventory information about the shared
resources.

When unilateral management is used, the user can specify a mode to manage the shared resources
based on site situations. For example:

Newly deployed base stations: GSM has the highest management priority, UMTS has the
medium management priority, and LTE has the lowest management priority. For example,
in a GU base station, it is recommended that GSM manage the shared resources.

Capacity expansion: The existing mode manages the shared resources. For example, during
an evolution from GSM to GU, it is recommended that GSM manage the shared resources.

The management method varies according to different types of shared resources. The following
table lists the management method for different types of shared resources.

Management Method

Site devices

Unilateral management: Site devices are managed by one mode in the


BBU to which the site devices are connected

Cabinets

Unilateral management: If a cabinet is connected to a BBU, the


monitoring system of this cabinet is monitored by one mode in this BBU.
The monitoring system includes the power monitoring unit (PMU),
temperature control unit (TCU), cabinet control unit (CCU), fan
monitoring unit (FMU), and environment monitoring unit (EMU). If a
cabinet is connected to a BBU through the radio remote units (RRUs), the
monitoring system of this cabinet is managed by one mode the RRUs
serve.
NOTE
l When monitoring boards are managed by only one mode, the following
functions cannot be enabled: Energy Saving, Smart TRX, and controlling fan
speed by the main control board.
l The CCU can only be managed by one mode.

BBU3900
subrack

Multilateral management: The UPEU, UEIU, and FAN are managed


collectively by all modes in the BBU. UPEU is short for universal power
and environment interface unit. The UEIU is short for universal
environment interface unit.

About This Chapter


3900 series base stations adopt a module design, which consists of three modules: the BBU3900,
RF modules and cabinets that work with the BBU3900 and RF modules. The BBU3900 and RF
modules can be combined with different types of cabinets to adapt to different application
scenarios and meet user's requirements for fast and cost-effective network deployment.
4.1 Cabinets
Based on the application scenarios and cabinets installed, 3900 series base stations can be
classified into indoor macro base stations (BTS3900 and BTS3900L), outdoor macro base
stations (BTS3900A and BTS3900AL), distributed base stations (DBS3900), and mini base
stations (BTS3900C).
4.2 BBU
The BBU is a baseband processing unit and centrally manages the entire base station.
4.3 RF Module
RF modules modulate and demodulate baseband and RF signals, process data, amplify power
for signals, and conduct voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) tests.

NOTE

In a GU dual-mode base station where the GTMU is connected to port on the WMPT or UMPT through
ports on their panels, part of CPRI bandwidth of UMTS mode is reserved for a TX and an RX channel of
GSM mode in case that bandwidths of GSM mode are insufficient. As a result, the number of cells supported
by UMTS mode is reduced.

l The LBBPc does not support CPRI compression.
l If the CPRI extension switch is turned on, carrier specifications supported by the LBBPd
with a data rate of 9.8 Gbit/s are affected only when CPRI compression is used. For details
about the CPRI extension switch, see the CPRIEX parameter in the MOD BBP or LST
BBP command. When the CPRI extension switch is turned on, only the CPRI0, CPRI1,
and CPRI2 ports on the LBBPd can be used.

NOTE

For the GRFU V2/GRFU V2a operating in the 900 MHz frequency band:
l

The maximum output power of the RF module in S1 configuration is 60 W. To achieve the maximum
output power, you need to buy a license.

After design optimization, the 8 phase shift keying (8PSK) and Gaussian minimum shift-frequency
keying (GMSK) modulation schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on the the RF
module when the S1, S2, or S3 configuration is used.

When the S4, S5, or S6 configuration is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced
EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes
cannot enable the same output power for each carrier on the RF module.

NOTE

For the GRFU V2/GRFU V2a operating in the 1800 MHz frequency band:
l

The maximum output power of the RF module in S1 configuration is 60 W. To achieve the maximum
output power, you need to buy a license.

When the S4, S5, or S6 configuration is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced
EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes
cannot enable the same output power for each carrier on the RF module.

NOTE

l If the power sharing feature is activated, assume that UEs in a cell are randomly located.
l If the RF module is placed at an altitude of 3500 to 4500 meters, its power reduces by 1 dB. If the RF module
is placed at an altitude of 4500 to 6000 meters, its power reduces by 2 dB.
l Station spacing, frequency multiplexing factor, power control algorithm, and traffic model all affect the
gains of dynamic power sharing. In most cases, network plans are designed on the basis of power
specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the MRFU working in GSM mode: The maximum output power of the RF module in S1 configuration
is 60 W. To achieve the maximum output power, you need to buy a license.
l For the MRFU V2/MRFU V2a working in GSM mode and operating in the 900 MHz frequency band: After
design optimization, the 8 phase shift keying (8PSK) and Gaussian minimum shift-frequency keying
(GMSK) modulation schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on the the RF module when
the S1, S2, or S3 configuration is used. When the S4, S5, or S6 configuration is used, the license controlling
the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK
modulation schemes cannot enable the same output power for each carrier on the RF module.
l For the MRFU V2/MRFU V2a working in GSM mode and operating in the 1800 MHz frequency band:
When the S4, S5, or S6 configuration is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE
Coverage feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes cannot enable
the same output power for each carrier on the RF module.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the MRFUd working in GSM mode: when the S1 or S2 configuration is applied, the maximum output
power of each carrier on the MRFUd is 80 W. If the output power of 60 W or 80 W is required, the related
license must be obtained. After design optimization, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes enable the
same output power for each carrier on the MRFUd when any of the S1 through S6 configurations is used.
When the S7 or S8 configuration is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE
Coverage feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes cannot enable
the same output power for each carrier on the MRFUd.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

NOTE

l If the power sharing feature is activated, assume that UEs in a cell are randomly located.
l If the RF module is placed at an altitude of 3500 to 4500 meters, its power reduces by 1 dB. If the RF module
is placed at an altitude of 4500 to 6000 meters, its power reduces by 2 dB.
l Station spacing, frequency multiplexing factor, power control algorithm, and traffic model all affect the
gains of dynamic power sharing. In most cases, network plans are designed on the basis of power
specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the MRFUe working in GSM mode: when the S1 configuration is applied, the maximum output power
of each carrier on the MRFUe is 125 W; when the S2 configuration is applied, the maximum output power
of each carrier on the MRFUe is 60 W. If the output power of 60 W, 80 W, or 125 W is required, the related
license must be obtained. After design optimization, the 8 phase shift keying (8PSK) and Gaussian minimum
shift-frequency keying (GMSK) modulation schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on the
the RF module when the S1, S2, or S3 configuration is used. When any of the S4 through S8 configurations
is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained.
Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes cannot enable the same output power for each carrier
on the MRFUe.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

NOTE

In SRAN6.0, when an MRFUe works in GL mode and is configured with two LTE FDD carriers, each
carrier can use 1.4 MHz, 3 MHz, 5 MHz, or 10 MHz bandwidth. In SRAN7.0, when an MRFUe works in
GL mode and is configured with two LTE FDD carriers, only one carrier can use 15 MHz or larger
bandwidth.

l

After design optimization, the 8 phase shift keying (8PSK) and Gaussian minimum shift-frequency
keying (GMSK) modulation schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on the RRU3008
V2 when any of the S1 through S6 configurations is used.

When the S7 or S8 configurations is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced
EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes
cannot enable the same output power for each carrier on the RRU3008 V2.

NOTE

l If the power sharing feature is activated, assume that UEs in a cell are randomly located.
l If the RF module is placed at an altitude of 3500 to 4500 meters, its power reduces by 1 dB. If the RF module
is placed at an altitude of 4500 to 6000 meters, its power reduces by 2 dB.
l Station spacing, frequency multiplexing factor, power control algorithm, and traffic model all affect the
gains of dynamic power sharing. In most cases, network plans are designed on the basis of power
specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the RRU3908 V2 working in GSM mode and operating in the 900 MHz frequency band: After design
optimization, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on
the RF module when any of the S1 through S6 configurations is used. When the S7 or S8 configuration is
used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained.
Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes cannot enable the same output power for each carrier
on the RF module.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

NOTE

l If the power sharing feature is activated, assume that UEs in a cell are randomly located.
l If the RF module is placed at an altitude of 3500 to 4500 meters, its power reduces by 1 dB. If the RF module
is placed at an altitude of 4500 to 6000 meters, its power reduces by 2 dB.
l Station spacing, frequency multiplexing factor, power control algorithm, and traffic model all affect the
gains of dynamic power sharing. In most cases, network plans are designed on the basis of power
specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the RRU3926 working in GSM mode: when the S1 configuration is applied, the maximum output power
of each carrier on the RRU3926 is 80 W. If the output power of 60 W or 80 W is required, the related license
must be obtained. After design optimization, the 8 phase shift keying (8PSK) and Gaussian minimum shiftfrequency keying (GMSK) modulation schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on the the
RF module when the S1, S2, or S3 configuration is used. When any of the S4 through S8 configurations is
used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained.
Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes cannot enable the same output power for each carrier
on the RRU3926.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

NOTE

l If the power sharing feature is activated, assume that UEs in a cell are randomly located.
l If the RF module is placed at an altitude of 3500 to 4500 meters, its power reduces by 1 dB. If the RF module
is placed at an altitude of 4500 to 6000 meters, its power reduces by 2 dB.
l Station spacing, frequency multiplexing factor, power control algorithm, and traffic model all affect the
gains of dynamic power sharing. In most cases, network plans are designed on the basis of power
specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the RRU3928 working in GSM mode: After design optimization, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation
schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on the RF module when any of the S1 through S6
configurations is used. When the S7 or S8 configuration is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104
Enhanced EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes
cannot enable the same output power for each carrier on the RF module.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

NOTE

l If the power sharing feature is activated, assume that UEs in a cell are randomly located.
l If the RF module is placed at an altitude of 3500 to 4500 meters, its power reduces by 1 dB. If the RF module
is placed at an altitude of 4500 to 6000 meters, its power reduces by 2 dB.
l Station spacing, frequency multiplexing factor, power control algorithm, and traffic model all affect the
gains of dynamic power sharing. In most cases, network plans are designed on the basis of power
specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the RRU3929 working in GSM mode: when the S1 or S2 configuration is applied, the maximum output
power of each carrier on the RRU3929 is 60 W. If the output power of 60 W is required, the related license
must be obtained.After design optimization, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes enable the same
output power for each carrier on the RF module when any of the S1 through S6 configurations is used. When
the S7 or S8 configuration is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE Coverage
feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes cannot enable the same
output power for each carrier on the RF module..
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

NOTE

l If the power sharing feature is activated, assume that UEs in a cell are randomly located.
l If the RF module is placed at an altitude of 3500 to 4500 meters, its power reduces by 1 dB. If the RF module
is placed at an altitude of 4500 to 6000 meters, its power reduces by 2 dB.
l Station spacing, frequency multiplexing factor, power control algorithm, and traffic model all affect the
gains of dynamic power sharing. In most cases, network plans are designed on the basis of power
specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the RRU3936 working in GSM mode: when the S1 configuration is applied, the maximum output power
of each carrier on the RRU3936 is 80 W. If the output power of 60 W or 80 W is required, the related license
must be obtained. After design optimization, the 8 phase shift keying (8PSK) and Gaussian minimum shiftfrequency keying (GMSK) modulation schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on the the
RF module when the S1, S2, or S3 configuration is used. When any of the S4 through S8 configurations is
used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained.
Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes cannot enable the same output power for each carrier
on the RRU3936.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

NOTE

l If the power sharing feature is activated, assume that UEs in a cell are randomly located.
l If the RF module is placed at an altitude of 3500 to 4500 meters, its power reduces by 1 dB. If the RF module
is placed at an altitude of 4500 to 6000 meters, its power reduces by 2 dB.
l Station spacing, frequency multiplexing factor, power control algorithm, and traffic model all affect the
gains of dynamic power sharing. In most cases, network plans are designed on the basis of power
specifications of dynamic power sharing.
l Before activating the dynamic power sharing feature, enable the DTX and power control functions. In
GBSS8.1, the dynamic power sharing feature is mutually exclusive with the GBFD-113201 Concentric Cell,
GBFD-114501 Co-BCCH Cell, GBFD-118001 BCCH Dense Frequency Multiplexing, and GBFD-117501
Enhanced Measurement Report (EMR) features. In GBSS9.0 and later versions, the dynamic power sharing
feature can be used together with these features. However, the dynamic power sharing feature currently
cannot be used together with the GBFD-117002 IBCA (Interference Based Channel Allocation),
GBFD-117001 Flex MAIO, GBFD-118701 RAN Sharing, and GBFD-114001 Extended Cell features in
GBSS8.1, GBSS9.0, and later versions.
l For the RRU3938 working in GSM mode: After design optimization, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation
schemes enable the same output power for each carrier on the RF module when any of the S1 through S6
configurations is used. When the S7 or S8 configuration is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104
Enhanced EDGE Coverage feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes
cannot enable the same output power for each carrier on the RF module.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.

power of each carrier on the RRU3939 is 60 W. If the output power of 60 W is required, the related license
must be obtained.After design optimization, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes enable the same
output power for each carrier on the RF module when any of the S1 through S6 configurations is used. When
the S7 or S8 configuration is used, the license controlling the GBFD-118104 Enhanced EDGE Coverage
feature must be obtained. Otherwise, the 8PSK and GMSK modulation schemes cannot enable the same
output power for each carrier on the RF module.
l The output power per carrier in the output power table provides the maximum output power possible
while ensuring the network performance.
