ZXMW NR8250 System Description

Service Type Function Description

l Reduces the transmission delay and increases the


system transmission efficiency.
l Reduces unnecessary cost of frame encapsulation and
increases the radio bandwidth utilization.
l Increases the microwave frequency spectrum
utilization.

The NR8250 can function as a convergence node and


supports at most six transmission directions. The Ethernet
Six-direction
service switching function and the Synchronous Digital
aggregation node
Hierarchy (SDH) Multiplexer (MUX) function are embedded
in the NR8250, facilitating service switching.

ACM is a technology that can automatically adjust the


coding and modulation mode in accordance with channel
quality. When channel quality is good, the ACM function
Adaptive Coding and
improves the system transmission efficiency and frequency
Modulation (ACM)
spectrum utilization. When channel quality is deteriorated,
the ACM function ensures the link reliability of high-priority
services.

Automatic This function reduces the transmitter's interference on


transmission power neighbor systems and the transmitter's residual error rate.
control

The NR8250 can transmit two channels of different signals


on the same carrier frequency through a dual-polarized
antenna, and such signals are called cross-polarized
Cross Polarization signals. In practical applications, however, interference is
Interference generated between cross-polarized signals due to limited
Canceller (XPIC) antenna isolation, multi-path effect, or signal attenuation
caused by rain. The XPIC function is applied at the
receiving end to eliminate the interference and improve the
system immunity.

With this function, the contents that are unchanged but


Ethernet frame repeatedly transmitted in Ethernet data frames, such as
header compression MAC address and IP header, are replaced by short bytes at
on air interface the transmitting end. This function increases the Ethernet
service transmission throughput for a fixed bandwidth.

l The NR8250 supports Ethernet load balance and XPIC


to implement large-capacity transmission.
l The Ethernet load balance function is implemented
Load balance
by Link Aggregation Group (LAG) or Physical Link
Aggregation (PLA). LAG uses the HASH algorithm to
calculate source/destination addresses of data flows to

Chapter 1 Overview

Service Type Function Description

determine the transmission channel for each service


flow. Load balance can also be implemented based
on IP addresses. PLA slices each service flow in
accordance with a fixed length, and averagely allocates
such data slices to each transmission channel.

After the PIS (Packet Intelligence Segment) function is


configured, the QoS of the high priority stream is optimized,
and the delay jitter of the high priority queue is reduced.
PIS This function adds classification judgement of the Ethernet
data at the air interface, which means, the Ethernet packets
of high priority is transmitted preferentially and the Ethernet
packets of low priority is transmitted in sections.

The NR8250 supports independent STM-1 service


transmission and reception on N+1 (N≤3) channels through
the air interface. N indicates the number of working
channels and 1 indicates one protection channel. If
a working channel fails, its services are automatically
TDM N+1 protection
switched to the protection channel.
After the active channel is restored to normal status,
the services on the protection channel are automatically
switched back to the original path within the specified WTR
time.

The NR8250 supports TDM service cross connections, that


is, cross connections from E1 to STM-1 and from STM-1 to
Service cross
E1. The maximum cross-connection capacity is:
connections
l 4000×4000 E1s (VC12)
l 63×63 STM-1s (VC4)

l The NR8250 supports SNCP switchover when the


work mode of air interface is set to E1 or STM-1. It
improves the microwave link transmission reliability.
l SNCP uses 1+1 protection mode. In other words, each
transmission direction has two different routes: working
TDM
route and protection route. Service data is transferred
Sub-Network
between two NEs through SNCP, that is, the NE at the
Connection
transmitting end transmits service data to the NE at
Protection (SNCP)
the receiving end through the working subnetwork and
for TDM service
protection subnetwork in bridge mode. The NE at the
receiving end selects the service data from one of the
two routes based on the switchover principle.
l The SNCP function can be flexibly applied in protection
configuration for various networks, including trunk
network, relay network, and access network. It can

Service Type Function Description

also be applied in various network topologies, including


tree network, ring network, and mesh network.

The SNCP+protection function provides a pre-configured


standby channel for each TDM service link. A working
channel generally carries service data, and a standby
channel does not carry TDM service but reserves TDM
Sub-Network
bandwidth for Ethernet service. When TDM service is
Connection
interrupted due to working channel faults, it is switched
Protection + (SNCP+)
to the pre-configured standby channel, achieving 1:1
for TDM service
ring-network protection for TDM service. SNCP routing
is configured for both terminal ends, and P2P routing is
configured for intermediate links. Service data is transmitted
on working channels only.

This function meets the requirement of convergence from


multiple directions. The NR8250 can provide access
for TDM services of multiple shelves through the TDM
cascading interface on the RCUB board or a GbE interface
TDM cascading
on any Ethernet board.
If the main control board operates in the active-standby
protection mode, the GbE interface of an Ethernet board
should be used as the TDM cascading interface.

The dedicated protection channel for the NR8250 operates


in 1+1 LMSP mode. The working and protection channels
transport the same services at the same time. The
protection channel cannot transport extra services. If the
working channel fails, the services are switched to the
protection channel for transmission and reception.
The supported modes are 1+1 single-end unrecoverable
protection, 1+1 single-end recoverable protection, 1+1
dual-end unrecoverable protection, and 1+1 dual-end
LMSP recoverable protection.
The single-end modes do not require any protocol. The
dual-end modes need to use multiplex section K1/K2 to
directly implement the APS protocol for switching and
recovery.
The external commands with the priorities in descending
order include clear, switching lock, forced switching, manual
switching, exercise switching, and automatic switching.
The NR8250 supports board-level LMSP and port-level
LMSP.

The NR8250 uses a carrier-level Ethernet switching


CES
architecture. The internal switching is layer-2 Ethernet

Chapter 1 Overview

Service Type Function Description

switching and layer-2 Ethernet frames (802.3) are


processed. The TDM service uses CES over ETH, which
encapsulates the TDM service into layer-2 Ethernet frames
for transmission.
This function enables the microwave Native TDM service
to transverse a wired network. The TDM service can
transverse the wired network after CES over ETH
processing by the emulation board configured on the
NR8000 device for accessing the wired packet network.
The CES service is restored into a Native TDM service
through the emulation board configured on another NR8000
device.

This function has the following advantages:


l Supports the Ethernet switching function with a
maximum switching capacity of 22 Gbit/s.
l Provides 10/100/1000 Mbps adaptive ports, and
supports the auto-negotiation function and automatic
transmission rate adjustment.
l Supports statistics of Ethernet bandwidth utilization
and remote monitoring.
l Supports 16 K Medium Access Control (MAC) address
spaces.
l Supports 9600-byte Jumbo frames.
l Supports the STP/RSTP/MSTP function. It prevents
packets from being multiplied and circulated in a
ring network, and ensures that the system packet
processing capability will not degrade due to repeatedly
Ethernet Ethernet switching receiving the same packets.
l Supports the Connectivity Fault Management (CFM)
function, which includes continuity check, loopback
check, link tracing, remote defect indication, frame loss
rate measurement, alarm indication, administrative
locking, and signal testing.
l Supports the Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) function,
which includes link frame-level detection and statistics
management, and reports the alarm status of relevant
links to users in a timely manner.
l Supports the Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP)
function, which enables devices of different vendors
to recognize each other in the network and exchange
system configuration information with each other.
l Supports the Link Aggregation Control Protocol
(LACP) function, through which multiple member links

are bound to form an aggregation group, increasing


point-to-point bandwidth and redundancy between two
devices.
l Supports the Ethernet Ring Protection Switching
(ERPS) function, which is operating on all NEs in a ring
network. The Connectivity Fault Management (CFM)
module checks link connectivity in the ring network and
reports link faults to ERPS to ensure that each NE can
operate properly.
l Supports the Ethernet Linear Protection Switching
(ELPS) function. The ELPS function, based on ITU
G.8031, mainly performs end-to-end protection for
the VLAN-based point-to-point Ethernet services. It
satisfies the requirement of the carrier-class Ethernet
50 ms switching, supports port+Vlan-based protection,
that is, QinQ tunnel-based protection, and supports 12
protection groups in maximum.
l Supports the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
function, which dynamically checks the microwave
network topology and calculates the route table for the
IP layer to forward data.

QoS is a network security mechanism, which helps solve


network delay and congestion problems.
The NR8250 determines the scheduling priority of a packet
in accordance with the information such as 802.1q priority,
Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) priority, and
MPLS label in the packet. It ensures that important packets
are not delayed or discarded and the network can operate
properly.
This functions has the following advantages:
l Supports various scheduling types, including Strict
Quality of Service Priority (SP), Weighted Round Robin (WRR), Deficit
(QoS) Weighted Round Robin (DWRR), WFQ, SP+WRR,
SP+DWRR, and SP+WFQ.
l Supports three packet discarding functions: end
discarding, simple early random discarding and
weighted early random discarding.
l Supports the storm suppression function for unknown
unicast, unknown multicast, known multicast, and
broadcast.
l Supports the aging time setting.
l Supports the traffic shaping function for outgoing
services.

3.2 Management Plane Signal Flow


Control signals of the NR8250 are transmitted in the in-band mode. Control signals and
user data are separated by Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN).
l The control signal flow is input from the Ethernet board or the IF board (RMU), and
forwarded to the main control board (RCU) for switching.
l In accordance with MAC addresses or IP addresses contained in the control signal
flow, the main control board determines whether the control signals should be
processed by the software of the main control board. The control plane data to be
processed is switched to the CPU of the main control board for processing.
l After being processed, the control plane signal flow, which is marked with the VLAN
ID by the main control board for distinction, is sent to the data switching plane from
the CPU, switched to the ports of different boards, and sent outwards.

4.1 System Clock Principle


4.1.1 Clock Synchronization Types
For the input/output clock sources supported by the NR8250, refer to Table 4-1.

Table 4-1 Input/Output Clock Sources Supported by NR8250

Clock Source Type Description Standard Followed

BITS clock The BITS clock signal is inputted from the CLK ITU-T G.813 standard
IN/OUT port on the RCU panel. The BITS clock
has two modes: 2 Mbps and 2 MHz. Users can
configure the clock mode through software.

SyncE synchronization The NR8250 supports the Master-output/Slave- ITU-T G.8262


gigabit/megabit input mode. The synchronization Ethernet clock standard
Ethernet clock signal is inputted/outputted from the gigabit or
megabit Ethernet interface of RCU/RTUH/RTUN.

Synchronous Digital The NR8250 extracts the clock signal from STM-N ITU-T G.813 standard
Hierarchy (SDH) clock physical fiber (namely, the clock signal is extracted
from the STM1/STM4 optical service inputted
from the electrical interface of RTUB), and it has
nothing to do with the service that the optical fiber
bears. The clock signal outputted from STM-1/4 is
forwarded to the lower-level NEs.

Microwave air-interface The NR8250 restores the clock signal from the ITU-T G.813 standard
clock air interface, and uses it as the system reference
clock source.

1PPS+TOD clock The 1PPS+TOD clock signal is inputted/outputted ITU-T G.813 standard
from the CLK IN/OUT port on the RCUB panel.

ZXMW NR8250 System Description

Clock Source Type Description Standard Followed

1588v2 clock The NR8250 supports the 1588v2 protocol. The ITU-T G.8263
clock signal from the 1588v2 Slave of the gigabit standard
Ethernet interface of RCU/RTUH/RTUNserves as
the clock source.
The supported clock types include common clock,
edge clock, and transparent clock.
l If an NR8250 is used as a secondary common
clock, it synchronizes with upper-level NEs
through the 1588v2 protocol. If an NR8250 is
used as a primary common clock, it outputs
the clock signal to the lower-level NEs through
the 1588v2 protocol.
l If an NR8250 is used as a transparent
clock, it satisfies the clock synchronization
requirement of terminal devices through the
point-to-point existence delay modification
for 1588v2 packets that are transparently
transferred in the microwave network.
l If an NR8250 is used as an edge clock, it
forwards the clock synchronization signal in
the microwave network to satisfy the clock
synchronization requirement of terminal
devices.

Plesiochronous Digital The NR8250 extracts the clock signal from the E1 ITU-T G.823 standard
Hierarchy (PDH) clock interface of RTUB/RTUC/RTUH, and uses it as
the system reference clock source.

4.1.2 Clock Synchronization Principles


A microwave network that consists of NR8250s bears SDH services and radio services. It
is a synchronization network, synchronizing time in the primary/secondary synchronization
mode.

An NE node in the microwave network is taken as the primary clock, and synchronizes
with the upper-level high-precision clock. It is configured with a high-precision local crystal
oscillator, which is used for keeping the clock or as the primary clock when no external
high-precision clock is available. Other NE nodes in the network trace the primary clock,
and control corresponding lower-level NE nodes in accordance with the primary clock.

Figure 4-1 shows the clock signal transferring diagram of the NR8250.

Chapter 4 System Principles

Figure 4-1 Clock Signal Transferring Diagram

1. After the system clock of IDU1 locks a reference clock source, it transfers the clock
signal to IDU2 through microwave air interface, synchronization Ethernet, or optical
fiber, and works as the reference clock source of IDU2.
2. IDU2 can lock its system clock to the reference clock source and outputs the system
clock signal to implement the clock transferring function.

4.2 Power Supply Principle


4.2.1 Power Supply Connection
The NR8250 uses the standard -48 V communication power supply. The IDU and relevant
ODUs use different power supplies.
l The IDU gets the -48 V power supply from the PM module, which supports the 1+1
backup function and has a maximum power of 300 W.
l An ODU gets power supply from the IF interface of the RMU board, which gets
power supply from the RPUA board. The maximum power of an RPUA is 210 W,
and an RPUA can provide power supply to six ODUs at most. The RPUA board
performs functions including Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) protection for
circuits, reverse-connection prevention, and O-Ring.

4.2.2 Power Distribution


The PM module provides the 12 V power supply for boards in all slots. The RPUA board
provides the -48 V power supply for boards in slots 3 to 6. Figure 4-2 shows the power
distribution of the NR8250.

4.3.2 Data Management


The data management module helps users manage the NR8250 configuration data. It
ensures that the configuration data can be issued to each service board reliably and
accurately.

Data Storage
In the NR8250 system, the main control board uses a 256 MB flash to save data. The
flash stores various files, including version files, configuration files, exception log files, and
performance files.

4.3.3 Security Management


The security management module helps LMT users maintain the operation rights, including
querying rights, adding rights, deleting rights, and setting rights and passwords for users.
The user rights hierarchy function is used to manage the equipment operation commands.
The configuration right and browsing right are available to users. Those who only have
the browsing right can only access the configuration window but cannot modify the
configuration data.
At most 10 users can be added through the security management module. There are three
roles: administrator, operator, and browsing user.
l The administrator can perform all query operations and configuration operations, add
or delete users, set locked user information, and disable or enable users.
l An operator can perform query operations and configuration operations.
l A browsing user can only perform query operations.
All users can modify their own passwords.
The security management module also provides the IP rule filtering function and the Trap
IP control-table enabling function for the NetNumen U31 system.

Chapter 4 System Principles

4.3.5 Monitoring and Maintenance


The monitoring and maintenance module helps users not only find all faults of the
equipment but also troubleshoot the faults in a timely manner. It ensures proper
operations of the equipment.

Equipment Monitoring
l The maintenance terminal provides all alarm information of the equipment and
monitors the status and operations of the equipment in real time. It handles all
abnormal alarms that affect the equipment operations in a timely manner to ensure
that the equipment can operate properly.
l Alarm information is divided into four levels:
à critical

à major
à minor
à warning
Alarm levels enable users to handle critical alarms as soon as possible.
l Indicators are designed on the power board, main control board, and each controlled
board. The color and flashing frequency of each indicator reflects the operating status
of the corresponding board, whether the board has an alarm, and the alarm level.
l When the equipment is being started, the system gives a sound prompt, indicating
whether the equipment is powered on properly. The system also provides sound alarm
and rotating speed alarm for the fans if they are faulty.
l The system uses the active/standby configuration. When the active equipment
becomes faulty, the system automatically perform active/standby equipment
switchover to ensure that the system can operate properly.

Equipment Maintenance
l The multi-user operation mode is implemented through the user rights hierarchy.
l During the equipment operating process, all alarm information is recorded. When
a fault occurs, users can find the fault causes through the log information and
troubleshoot the fault in a timely manner.
l When the equipment is powered down or restarts, the system provides a special alarm
handling policy to ensure that the original alarm information will not be lost after the
equipment is powered on or restarted.
l Association or filtering shielding processing is performed for redundant alarms of the
equipment, ensuring that important alarms are provided.
l In the LMT system, users check the operating status of the equipment.
l In the LMT system, users can check the service performance data of the equipment,
including 15-minute performance data of one day and 24-hour performance data of
10 days.

sufficient debugging information during the equipment debugging process.
The NR8250 provides a dedicated diagnosis and debugging command mode and
comparatively complete diagnosis and debugging functions. Users can check the
equipment at any time, and remotely find and locate faults.

4.3.7 Software Upgrading


The NR8250 supports software upgrading through Local Maintenance Terminal (LMT) or
Element Management System (EMS).

4.4 Reliability Principle


4.4.1 Hardware Reliability
The NR8250 system uses the redundancy design to improve the hardware reliability.
l Power supply protection
The IDU and ODUs use different power supplies, and all the power supplies support
1+1 backup protection.
l Control-switching-plane active/standby protection
The system supports active/standby protection for the main control board and clock.
When the active board becomes faulty, the standby board is automatically switched
over to operate as the active board. During the active/standby switchover, an
instantaneous service interruption is allowed.
l Air interface protection
The system supports three protection modes: 1+1 hot backup protection, 1+1 space
diversity protection, and 1+1 frequency diversity protection.

4.4.2 Software Reliability


l The software development of the NR8250 complies with the Capability Maturity Model
(CMM) specification.
l Unified and portable system platform
The NR8250 uses a modularized software system platform, which completely shields
the hardware features and makes the application layer independent of the hardware.
It provides a unified and portable system platform for various applications.
l Hierarchical modularized structure

4-8

SJ-20130930111159-002|2014–01–10 (R1.0) ZTE Proprietary and Confidential


Chapter 4 System Principles

The NR8250 uses a hierarchical modularized software structure to implement a high


cohesion and low coupling. It reduces the influence of an errored software module on
other software modules to the minimum extent.
l Uninterrupted upgrading
The NR8250 supports upgrading software by installing the software patch. The
software of a controlled board can be upgraded online without affecting the main
control board. It improves the service transmission capability as well as the system
availability and service quality.

4.4.3 Data Reliability


The NR8250 provides a strict data protection mechanism.

l It supports real-time synchronous data backup between the active board and the
standby board. When the active board is faulty, the standby board is automatically
switched over to operate as the active board, and its program and data take effect
immediately. Because the standby board's data is consistent with that of the active
board, the upper-layer service transmission will not be affected.
l It supports automatically backing up the database of the active board to the Flash
storage area. In this way, the active board can acquire the data directly from the
Flash storage area.
l It provides the active/standby 1+1 protection mode of the radio link to ensure the
service transmission data reliability. The active/standby 1+1 protection mode has the
following three types:
à 1+1 space diversity protection
à 1+1 frequency diversity protection
à 1+1 hot backup protection
l The version management function enables the system to initiate the version
consistency check periodically. If data inconsistency is found, an alarm is reported,
and the incorrect software version is prohibited to be activated and loaded. The
system also notifies users to re-download the software version package to recover
the data.

Figure 5-18 System Block Diagram of 3+1 Configuration

In N+1 protection mode, N indicates the number of working channels and 1 indicates one
protection channel. If the RMU or ODU on a working channel fails, its services are switched
to the protection channel for transmission and reception.

If the services on multiple working channels fail at the same time, those on the channel
with the highest priority are switched to the protection channel.
A smaller working channel number indicates a higher priority.

The protection channel has the lowest priority. TDM services can be configured on the
protection channel, but will be interrupted if a working channel fails. In this case, the
protection channel is used to transmit the TDM services on the failed working channel.

Configuration
Table of Contents
Combo Configuration Overview ..................................................................................6-1
PoE Power Supply .....................................................................................................6-2
DC Power Supply .......................................................................................................6-9

6.1 Combo Configuration Overview


Configuration Requirements
The NR8250 and NR8950 combo configuration is required in the following cases:

l For a site using NR8950, if this site needs to communicate with more than two sites
in different directions, the data of multiple NR8950 nodes cannot be cross-connected
or interconnected. In this case, the cross-connection and interconnection functions
need to be implemented by an IDU.
l If a base station or base station controller needs to provide E1/STM-1 access, an IDU
is required to achieve E1/STM-1 simulation and restoration.

Configuration Scenarios
The NR8250 and NR8950 combo configuration supports two kinds of power supplies.

l PoE power supply


à Connection mode: The NR8250 is connected to the electrical interface
(GbE1&PoE) of NR8950 through the RTUNP GbE interface (supporting PoE) for
data transmission and power supply.
à Connection quantity: For the NR8250, only the ETH port of the RTUNP board
supports PoE. Each RTUNP supports two PoE outputs, which means that it
supports to connect two NR8950s. Each NR8250 supports up to six RTUNP
boards, which means that totally 12 NR8950s can be connected.
l DC power supply

à Connection mode: The NR8250 uses the RTUNE/RTUNO board instead of


RTUNP, and can be connected to the NR8950 through a GbE port. DC power is
supplied to NR8950 through the PWR port.

6-1

SJ-20130930111159-002|2014–01–10 (R1.0) ZTE Proprietary and Confidential


ZXMW NR8250 System Description

à Connection quantity: For the NR8250, except the RTUNP board, the ETH port of
other boards can be connected to the NR8950 through the GbE interfaces. Each
NR8250 can support seven RTUNO/RTUNE boards in slots 2–8. Slots 2–4 are
high speed slots that support 12 NR8950s. Slots 5–8 are low speed slots that
support eight NR8950s. Therefore 20 NR8950s can be connected totally.

Unified Management
When an IDU (NR8250) and an AOU (NR8950) are used in combination, the AOU is
configured and managed as a special component of the IDU.
l LMT management: The IDU, providing a unified configuration and management
interface, maintains and manages the AOU that it connects to.
l EMS management: Only an IDU NE is displayed on the network topological view, and
the AOU device is managed through the IDU NE.
l If the AOU is controlled by the IDU, the operation mode can be configured to hosting
mode or standalone mode.
