Benefits Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description

2 Benefits

2.1 Cost-efficient modular site


With Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station, the same equipment can be used to build
coverage and capacity. A high cell capacity and wide coverage per site means fewer
sites which makes building a network more cost-effective. Flexi Multiradio 10 Base
Station can be installed at any existing legacy GSM/EDGE/CDMA/WCDMA site for a
broadband data capability upgrade. Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station is designed to
utilize the existing site equipment.

Easy installation
A Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station module can be lifted, carried, and put in place by one
person. The average module installation time is reduced, compared to traditional
cabinet BTSs.
Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station can be installed on a wall, however, it fits in the existing
legacy Nokia Siemens Networks GSM/EDGE/CDMA/WCDMA BTS footprints as well.
Each Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station module is protected to at least IP65 level and can
be installed as such at an outdoor site. In addition, both indoor and outdoor cabinet
installation options are available. Installation locations for a Flexi Multiradio 10 Base
Station can be smaller than or the same as those reserved for previous Nokia Siemens
Networks BTSs.

Low acoustic noise


The acoustic noise produced by a Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station site is low because
of reduced power consumption and an increased unit integration level. Site acceptance
is easier, especially at urban outdoor sites. Fan speeds and acoustic noise are adapted
to the BTS load and ambient temperature.

Easy commissioning
The autodetection feature of Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station makes commissioning and
integrating fast and easy. The commissioning wizard guides the user step-by-step
through the whole commissioning process. At the end of the process, the commission-
ing wizard produces a BTS Commissioning Report.

Reliable operation
Simplicity and speed of maintenance procedures improve operation reliability. Mainte-
nance is improved by module integration and automatic fault detection procedures.
Special attention has been paid to Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station software start time,
reducing, for instance, downtime when a new software package is put into use.

Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description

2.2 One BTS for all network applications


Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station is optimized for high-capacity and wide-coverage appli-
cations. It ensures cell ranges that meet the requirements of the coverage applications.
Therefore, the number of sites required for building a good coverage is minimized. A
seamless voice and data coverage area can be built easily.
Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station has been developed for coverage applications. It offers:
• Wide variety of RF modules for different applications and use cases, for example
high downlink power with Flexi 3-sector 240 W RF Module.
• Support of 2Tx MIMO 40+40 W per sector with single 6Tx RF Module and 4Tx MIMO
40+40+40+40 W per sector with two 6Tx RF Modules.
• Optimum uplink performance and receiver sensitivity.
• Outdoor modules that can be located close to antennas, reducing antenna feeder
losses.
• Optimized antenna system performance, including 3GPP antenna tilting and
masthead amplifier (MHA) support.
• High downlink power in small size with Flexi Remote Radio Head.

w NOTICE: Masthead amplifier (MHA) is not supported in TD-LTE.

Antenna line
Optimized Antenna line is a separate, optional site solution to additionally improve total
BTS and antenna system site RF performance and to minimize costs.
Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Optimized Antenna line includes the following optional
features, enabled by SW licenses:
• Integrated MHA power feeding and O&M control to the RF Module of the Flexi BTS.
• Integrated Antenna line supervision by Return Loss measurement (VSWR measure-
ment).
• Integrated 3GPP standard Antenna Tilt power feeding and 3GPP Antenna Tilt O&M
control to the RF Module of the Flexi BTS.
Flexi RF Module has an integrated lightning protection circuit in all antenna connectors.
The antenna connector of Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station is on the RF Module front
panel. No additional units, connectors, or jumper cables are necessary between the
Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station antenna connector and the antenna. That minimizes the
antenna line length and losses, as well as optimizes RF performance in both the uplink
and downlink direction.

High speed broadband data and high capacity voice


Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station is a compact multi-purpose BTS designed to support all
future high speed broadband data and voice services over an air interface. Smooth data
and voice capacity evolution is provided through software.
The processing capacity of Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station can be configured to support
the maximum capacity that the air interface allows.
In addition to the flexible traffic capacity, Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station also allows a
free mix of traffic patterns to accommodate whatever proportion of voice and data is
required. Depending on network capacity requirements, the capacity installed can be
matched with the capacity of the air interface.

Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description

2.3 Feederless and Distributed Site concept


Standard Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station modules support the Feederless BTS site
application where one RF Module or Remote Radio Head or the entire Flexi BTS is
installed close to the antennas. For a feederless site, traditional long antenna feeders or
masthead amplifiers are not needed thanks to which the BTS site RF performance is
optimized in both uplink and downlink.
A standard RF Module can be installed close to an antenna the benefits of which are:
• Best RF performance because there are no downlink and uplink feeder losses.
• Easiest installation because of only one optical cable and DC cable to tower.
• No long antenna feeders (typically six for a three-sector site).
• No masthead amplifiers/tower-mounted amplifiers.
• Lowest total wind load and weight.
• Lowest total power consumption.
A Flexi RF Module can be software-activated and configured to support one, two, or
three sectors, or one sector with 2TX MIMO with optional four-way uplink diversity.
In the Distributed Site solution, RF Module(s) or Remote Radio Head(s) are located up
to 20 km away from the main Flexi System Module site.

Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description Single RAN aspects

3 Single RAN aspects

3.1 RF sharing
The RF sharing feature allows Flexi Multiradio BTS RF Module to operate in a concur-
rent mode with two radio access technologies (RATs). BTS resources between RATs
are allocated and shared by allowing two Flexi EDGE/ WCDMA/LTE System Modules
to share the same Flexi BTS Multiradio RF Module or Remote Radio Head (RRH). RF
Module or RRH is transmitting RF carrier signals for two or more RATs at the same fre-
quency band. The RF Sharing concept simplifies the antenna system complexity, and
provides the operators with future-proof BTS site evolution.

QoS Aware Ethernet Switching allows multiple Ethernet interfaces in the BTS to be con-
nected through the integrated Ethernet switch. One of the interfaces is used for the
backhaul connection, while others might be used to connect other BTSs (at the same or
another site). It is also possible to daisy chain several network devices.
The Ethernet switch is VLAN- and QoS-aware. The egress traffic of the switch can be
shaped to meet the bandwidth limitations of the backhaul network. Additionally, a policy
can be applied to the ingress traffic to protect the BTS from the interface overload.

g Ethernet switching is required at the BTS where the layer 2 traffic aggregation/daisy
chain is to be implemented.

Synchronization Hub
Each System Module can act as a synchronization hub for other near-located System
Modules. For example, it can output 2.048 MHz SynchOut based on any available syn-
chronization source. If PDH interfaces are available in the System Module, then they can
also be used for synchronization distribution to other devices.

Single RAN aspects Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description

If the BTS loses all sync sources, it switches to hold-over mode. Then, the BTS Oven
Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) keeps running with the last known control value,
and still provides the sync output.

Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description Baseband capacity

4 Baseband capacity
Baseband capacity by SW license
Future-proof Flexi Multiradio System Module capacity is designed to support flexible and
cost-optimized site capacity evolution. The highest capacity Flexi System Module is
dimensioned to provide a hardware baseband capacity, for example, for up to three 20
MHz LTE cells (FSMF).
Baseband capacity of Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station can be optimized depending on
the BTS configuration and required traffic capacity of the BTS site. More baseband
capacity can be allocated remotely from NetAct™ by sending a Baseband SW License
to Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station. Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station baseband capacity
can be optimized in steps of Mbit/s without a site visit.

Future capacity evolution


Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station is future-proof designed to support future capacity
demand. The Flexi BTS architecture supports chaining up to nine System Modules,
making it possible to build very high capacity sites and various redundancy solutions.
Flexi Multiradio System Module provides space for up to two baseband extension sub-
modules (FBBA) that enable three times the capacity of the Flexi Multiradio System
Module.
SRIO and OBSAI RP3-01 interfaces provide connectivity for baseband capacity and/or
technology extension. Baseband extension and related interface utilization depends on
the radio access technology and the use case (a pure new Flexi Multiradio System
Module case or an existing Flexi System Module case).
Table 1 Maximum capacity of Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station shows radio access tech-
nology–specific capacity details.

Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description Management and software

These managers are integrated so that the physical interface (cable and connectors) is
the same in all three cases, however, three different applications run on the PC. The
manager PC is connected to the BTS by means of an Ethernet connection.
BTS Site Manager runs in the following environments:
• Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and 7 (32/64 bits)
• Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and 2008
• Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 ES GNOME desktop

5.2 Configuration management


Once the BTS is in normal operation, a polling process is used to check possible
changes in the BTS configuration. When modules are added to or removed from the
BTS, the information in the hardware database changes.

5.3 Remote User Event Log Management


Remote User Event Log Management (RUEM) is a feature that allows a network man-
agement system (NMS) to trace operations done in network elements (NEs) by different
users. This functionality is sometimes called “Audit Trail”. User access and operations
might be successful or fail. In both cases this is logged.

Figure 7 Audit trail


With RUEM, operations are logged on Flexi Baseband Controller (FCT) and sent to
NetAct within one single RUEM log file.
NWI3 logged operations:
• Login attempts (successful and unsuccessful)
• Logout
• Configuration changes (on fragment level)
• Local account updates
HTTP logged operations:
• Reboot operations
• Reset to factory default operation
XoH logged operations:
• SW Management (SW update Request and SW interrupt)
• Object Configuration Management (for example ResetRequest)
• Licence Update/Deletion Request
• Alarm Management and Diagnostics (for example Change Direct Access Status)
• Test Management (for example Test Dedicated State Request)
• User Management (for example Login and Modify User Request)
• Commissioning (for example Parse Commissioning Data Request)
• Clock Operation Request

5.3.1 RUEM concept - how does it work?


RUEM correlates every management operation with each user:
• NWI3 and XOH management operations implement session concept (user-
name/password)
• HTTP operations which are logged are operations that require username/password

Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description

Figure 8 The RUEM concept

Notification - Watermark
Operations that are logged by RUEM are stored in FCT in a ring buffer (internally). This
buffer is filled up for each logged operation.
As soon as a critical value (that is watermark, ~70% of total buffer size) is reached, FCT
will send a notification to NetAct (mediated by OMS in Flexi).

The RUEM upload mechanism


1. Triggered by NetAct

2. Triggered by Network element (FCT) - if the Watermark level is reached

After a successful reading of the logfile by the NMS, the read logfile is deleted from the
BTS to free memory space for next log entries. Log files in the BTS are kept in non-
volatile memory, and thus data is not lost upon power breaks.

Confidential
Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station Product Description

Exception: In case NetAct still does not upload the RUEM log file, the buffer might fill up
to its maximum size and even exceed this. In the latter situation the buffer has an
overflow and some old information gets lost permanently. It is not recoverable. This
special event is called a wrapped-over event. This should be logged in RUEM log file.

5.4 Software updates


Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station can store two software packages in its memory. The
software can be loaded either locally, with the BTS Site Manager software, or remotely
from NetActTM. Site visits are unnecessary for routine operation and maintenance
(O&M) tasks.
Typically, local software download is done only when the NetActTM connection is
missing, for example, during the commissioning process. Flexi Multiradio 10 Base
Station software can be downloaded as a background operation without interrupting the
BTS operation. The new software can be activated at any time. Reboot is required in
order to put the software into use.
Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station only uses downloadable software. All software can be
downloaded and updated from NetActTM. This procedure is centralized, meaning that
several BTSs can be upgraded with the new software either simultaneously or one by
one.
Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station keeps the current and previous software packages in
its flash memory. Either of these software versions can be activated at any time. Reboot
is required in order to put the software into use. Updated software (current and previous)
in the BTS can be seen through BTS Site Manager/NetActTM.
The RF Module and RRH SW is updated automatically during Flexi Multiradio 10 Base
Station SW update.
