Use the TIL tool on first installation to configure the minimum parameters required for connecting the
Node B with the RNC/OAM access.

TIL functions
The TIL tool:

displays the existing hardware of the Node B product

automatically displays hardware added to the Node B

provides basic maintenance and test capabilities for all Node B modules

saves reports (alarm, test reports) on a PC

retrieves the Node B hardware and software module configuration

retrieves IMT/FLR, EEC and radio logs

downloads Node B PM (Performance Measurement) files

downloads new software for Node B modules

configures Node B commissioning parameters and performs Callp commissioning tests

TIL description
The TIL consists of a laptop PC with a web browser connected to the active CCM of the Node B.
The TIL software is part of the CCM software and is loaded onto the TIL PC before connection to the
Node B. The TIL software is then always consistent with the Node B software release.

The Node B can also download its own software from a CD-ROM.
The TIL software offers an intuitive and graphical user interface (GUI) described in Understanding
the TIL GUI.

TIL connection modes


This chapter describes the connection modes between the TIL and the Node B.
The TIL is connected to the active CCM/iCCM/xCCM using a TCP/IP connection. Two types of
connections are available:

Peer-to-peer connection

Remote connection

Peer-to-peer connection
In the peer-to-peer connection mode, the CCM/iCCM port 2 and xCCM port 1 have a hard-coded IP
address. This address is factory-defined and is independent of the module. Thus, you always know
the IP address used to access the CCM for a peer-to-peer connection. An IP aliasing mechanism can
be used to define more than one IP address on the same interface.
The following figure shows the TIL peer-to-peer connection mode.
Figure 3 TIL peer-to-peer connection

The TIL is connected to the front panel of the CCM module using an RJ-45 Ethernet cable.
If the connection between the TIL and the Node B is successful, the green LED on the connected
port of the CCM module is lit up.

Remote connection

NN-20500-019 10.02/EN Preliminary June 2009

Copyright 2003-2009 Alcatel-Lucent

27

For a remote connection, you must know the public IP address of the CCM/iCCM/xCCM module in
the Node B. This public IP address can be fixed or dynamically assigned by a DHCP server. The TIL
does not handle dynamic IP address allocation of the CCM/iCCM/xCCM . If the IP address of the
module changes between two TIL connections, you have to know his new IP address for the second
connection.
The following figure shows the TIL remote connection mode.
Figure 4 TIL remote connection

The RNC acts as a router for IP traffic.


In remote connection mode, the TIL is connected to the network.
For OAM "in-band", that is, local network traffic, the I-node acts as a gateway between the OAM
subnetwork and the Node B subnetwork.
The following example is for information only:
Example
To set the network parameters of a CCM board, create a file /etc/rc2.d/S97NodeBRouter (such
as on the OAM main server) containing the following three commands to be executed on each
workstation reboot:

For a client PC:


route ADD 10.1.0.0 MASK 255.255.255.248 10.1.20.107 -p
route ADD 10.1.0.8 MASK 255.255.255.248 10.1.20.110 -p
route ADD 10.1.0.24 MASK 255.255.255.248 10.1.20.97 -p

Copyright 2003-2009 Alcatel-Lucent

Commissioning and Fault Management User Manual: TIL

28

(-p to make the declaration persistent for a PC reboot)

For a client workstation:


route add net 10.1.0.0/29 10.1.20.107 1
route add net 10.1.0.8/29 10.1.20.110 1
route add net 10.1.0.24/29 10.1.20.97 1

Network connection applies to Node Bs in live UMTS networks only.


Two peer-to-peer connections between the TIL and the active CCM are not possible at the same
time. Only the last TIL connection is available; the previous connection is automatically stopped (if it
is not performing a software download or activation operation).
An ongoing download operation, is given priority, that is, if any client (TIL or OMC-B) is performing a
download then that client retains the connection and the new client must wait until the first download
is over.
The TIL terminal is disconnected when a Node B download starts from OMC-B.

Node B modes
This chapter describes the Node B connection and operating modes.

Node B connection modes:

Stand-alone.
The Node B is in stand-alone mode if there is no communication between the Node B and the
OMC-B and the RNC (for more information, see Reset in stand-alone mode).

Connected.
The Node B is in connected mode if it is operational, linked to the network, and can receive
messages on the Iub interface during TIL connection (for more information, see Reset in
connected mode).

To switch the Node B from connected mode to stand-alone mode, you must reset the Node B using
the TIL (Reset in stand-alone mode). At the end of the reset you must reconnect the TIL terminal to
the Node B. If there is no TIL reconnection within 15 minutes, the Node B automatically reboots to
return to connected mode.

Node B operating modes:

Normal mode.
In normal operating mode the Node B is connected to the OMC-B and it can be configured and
operated using the TIL and the OMC-B in parallel without any restrictions.

Maintenance mode.
When a Node B is set to maintenance mode using the TIL, it should only be configured and
operated with the TIL. The OMC-B user is warned that it is not recommended to issue commands
to the Node B when it is in maintenance mode and connected to the TIL for site maintenance. For
more information, see Managing the Node B maintenance mode.

The Vp/Vc chosen must be different from those used at the application level (OAM level). If the
Vp/Vc used is identical between all Node Bs, the PCM loop back test does not detect the PCM link
crossings.

CPRI loop back test


The goal of the CPRI loop back test is to validate the digital transmission on fibers and the CPRI
framer level inside RRH.
The BTS can determine if there has been zero error on a given AxC of the CPRI link from BTS -->
RRH --> BTS digital link during a given test duration.

During the RF TX Cabling building, the TIL checks that the test frequency channel is within the
Node B frequency bandwidth.

You can start the RF cabling test when the Node B is in maintenance mode only.
Two main cases are to possible:

RF TX cabling display when the Node B MIB is not built, or when the Node B MIB is built but no
cell is configured

RF TX cabling display when the Node B MIB is built and the cells are configured

RF TX cabling display when the Node B MIB is not built, or when the Node B MIB
is built but no cell is configured
If the Node B MIB is not built or if the Node B MIB is built but no cell is configured, you can choose
any frequency within the Node B frequency band as the test frequency. The TIL sends the OAM the

test frequency as an alternative to the one that is included in the Node B configuration file. If the test
frequency sent to the OAM is different from the one in the Node B configuration file, the OAM uses
the alternative test frequency from the TIL and performs the test with the TRM board. The RF cabling
is then dynamically generated.
If the alternative test frequency sent by the TIL to the OAM is the same as the test frequency
included in the Node B configuration file, RF cabling test results previously saved into the EMOAM
database are used and the RF cabling is not dynamically generated.
The following figure shows an example of RF TX cabling representation when the Node B MIB is not
built, or when the Node B MIB is built but no cell is configured, and the alternative test frequency is
different from the test frequency included in the Node B configuration file:

RF TX cabling display when the Node B MIB is built and the cells are configured
When the Node B MIB is built and the cells are configured, the only accepted test frequency is the
test frequency of the DLU file. RF cabling test results previously saved in the EMOAM database are
used (at least test done during last Node B reset) and the RF cabling is not dynamically generated.
To have a dynamic result you have to lock the cells.
The following figure is an example of RF TX cabling representation.

Displaying the Node B radio configuration

This chapter contains the following procedures:

Downloading Node B radio debug logs

Decoding Node B radio debug logs


Note: before downloading the Node B radio debug Logs, it is necessary to set and activate the
Node B internal traces. The activation of Node B internal traces is the first functionality of the
Radio Debug command. The two subsequent functionalities of this command are the download
and the decoding of the Node B radio debug Logs.
The activation of internal traces is only used to investigate radio issues with the support of GPS
and TAC teams and is not in the scope of this document
