I face problem of drops BSS due to remote transcoder ( Alcatel vendor )on one TRX in a cell ( the cell config is 2 TRX).
This is the result i’ve got:
TRX1: DRops_BSS_TC= 0;
TRX2: Drops_BSS_TC= 60%;
I have changed the TRX, cable TX-RX , combiner but nothing.
There is no alarm at OMC center and everything looks clear.
PS: All other stats on the 2nd TRX looks great:
TRX2: call success rate = 98%
TRX2: Incomming Handover efficiency = 97%
Any idea ?? I really need your help .
Thanks in advance.23rd March 2009 at 13:50 #56376RexGuest
Is AMR activated? If Yes, check that TC supports it (NSS). Could be Abis pb (BER, FRAME_ALIGNMENT etc), TRX pb (you said that is OK).

I forgot, if not all these try to reset corresponding TCU.23rd March 2009 at 14:17 #56378ATTOGuest
Thanks for your quick response.
Below my answers/ eventhough questions:
Is AMR activated?
No. AMR is not activated on BSS part.
Could be Abis pb (BER, FRAME_ALIGNMENT etc): Is there possible to have high BER only on one TRX ( of course i know that this TRX is not faulty and the cell have 2 TRX defined)?
What about frame alignment/Misalignment?? I mean could frame be misaligned for days even when i changed hardwares?
I will try to reset the corresponding TCU .

If it’s not the TRX, then it’s either the ANC or the SUM board.
If it’s not them, then it’s the BTS cabinet itself 🙂 It’s extremely rare though…
Try placing the TRX board into another slot of the cabinet ?
And finally, try re-creating the cell / BTS from scratch in the OMC-R.
You’re right, an ABIS issue would impact all TRX in the cabinet. Only an Abis misconfiguration could explain this… but is it possible to misconfigure the Abis ? Perhaps a VSAT ?

No, Abis pb cannot have impact only in one TRX nor in one cell. It’ll have impact in all cells of the BTS. Sorry for my mistake!24th March 2009 at 14:24 #56381ATTOGuest
I reset the TCU but nothing.
Even the ANC have been changed, not only TRX.
I will try the other actions that U suggest.

I’m not a hardware expert, so I’m just giving ideas. I’m not sure it’s going to work… If it doesn’t, I’m afraid you’ll have to contact your TAC support…1st April 2009 at 07:25 #56383TNSGuest
What is the name of the indicator at TRX level…?
In my experience i have drops due to remote TC due to 2 reasons:
transmission interruption – all cell on the same abis affected.
TC board failure – many cell affected.
But never only one TRX.
What is the traffic carried by TRX1 and TRX2? ( Is TRX1 loaded at all? ).
BR,3rd April 2009 at 11:26 #56384ATTOGuest
The name of the KPI is RTCH_drop_BSS_transcoder_rate (on trx level). The incremented counter is MC739 at TRX level.
I put high priority of traffic on TRX1 in order to reduce drops. But the cell is loaded this is why TRX2 got traffic.
The problem began after a dissociation issue. 2 BTS sharing the same E1.
It is really weird because the TRX impacted have same TCUC board as another TRX which is not impacted.
Do U think that timeslots on E1 ( the impacted TRX have 2 mapped timeslots on the E1) could be faulty without any alarm or any other disturbance ? Because this TRX have also defined SDCCH and there is no SD drop or SD assignment failure.
Thanks!5th April 2009 at 20:58 #56385RexGuest
on Abis level try to remove 1 TRX, declare the sector with 1 TRX, reset OMU and then add again the second TRX.5th April 2009 at 21:00 #56386RexGuest
What multiplexing scheme you’re using for that BTS?6th April 2009 at 16:42 #56387ATTOGuest
I ‘ll try the actions suggested and the multiplexing scheme is 64 Kb/s statistic.
