Neighboring Plan Update Overview and procedure

Neighboring plan update

...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Neighboring plan update


General description

The neighboring plan update procedure aims at modifying the neighboring plan either due
to a new site addition or an addition, deletion, update of neighboring links in the UMTS
network.
When the modifications of the configuration data concern the neighboring links uniquely
(neighboring links are created, updated or deleted), the objects involved in this procedure
are as follows:

The UMTS neighboring links created, updated or deleted


The GSM neighboring links created, updated or deleted.
The GSM cell(s) impacted by the GSM neighboring links modification.

Note:

Equivalent activity needs to be performed on 2G system for reciprocal neighbours.


Note:

As WPS Access is mono ROC oriented, the procedure can be applied only on one ROC.
So if neighboring links towards cells belonging to others ROCs are updated, then the
same activity needs to be performed on each ROC
Compounding Neighouring List

Some new parameters or new parameter value are added to handle:

The priority defined per neighboring cell


The occurrence of a cell within all neighbourhoods

The parameters are:

The RP: "eighboring Plan Update", described in this document applies only if all of
the following conditions are verified:

PRELIMINARY

Neighboring Plan Update Overview and procedure


preparation

Procedure preparation

...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The RRM subtree required for the new neighboring plan is initialized on the host
RCs.
The configuration files coming from the Cell Planning Tool can be compatible with
WPS ACCESS CP XML format, as specified in document [R4] or with the CM
XML format, as specified in document [R2].
ote: It is recommended to use the CP XML format (specified in document [R4]).
This Snapshot format provides extra identifiers for the objects and does not require
specific UMTS topology information (RC, ode B) that are required in the CM
XML format. evertheless some pre-requisites on the etwork View are required in
order to be able to import a CP XML file in WPS ACCESS with the Cell Planning
Import Wizard:

There must be a unique definition of GSMCell within the etwork


The Cell Planning Id for GSMCell, BTSCell, AntennaAccess and AntennaSystem
must be unique over the entire network
Cell Planning Id must be consistent between a GSMCell and its associated
GSMeighbouringCell
RCid must be unique over the entire network
The LocalCellId of the FDDCell and BTSCell must be unique over the entire
network
The FDDCell UserLabel must be unique over the entire network
The UMTS eighboring FDDCell identification and/or related FDDCell
parameter definition must be consistent with related FDDCell.

Limitations

PRELIMINARY

The procedure focuses on UTRA Es: RC, and ode B.


The Cell Planning Tool and the OMC must contain the same network coverage in
terms of managed ode Bs and associated FDD Cells.
If the new neighboring plan comes from a CM XML files, o partial neighboring
plan can be obtained.
The creation and deletion of ode Bs or UMTS cells are out of scope in this
document.
The modification of the scrambling code, or LAC plan are out of the scope in this
document.
o modifications should be done on the Target RCs and their associated MO
(Managed Object) through WMS GUI, WICL from the beginning of the RP (export
XML from Main server, sheet 1) until the end of the procedure.
As WPS Access is mono ROC oriented, the procedure can be applied only on one
ROC. So if neighboring links towards cells belonging to others ROCs are updated,
then the same activity needs to be performed on the each ROC.

Mean Time

This chapter summarizes the duration given for each step of the Procedure. evertheless,
as the timing depends on too many heterogeneous parameters (Hardware Configuration,
Software Configuration, Size of the etwork, Transmission etwork performance, etc.)
and then might significantly vary from a configuration to another one, the times given in
this chapter are only for information and planning purpose.

CP XML interface overview

WPS ACCESS provides a specific interface for Cell Planning Tools based on XML
format, named CP XML, and described in the document referenced [R4].
This Specific format allows the user to use different identifiers for the Cell Planning
Objects that the ones defined in CM XML format described in document [R2] and to be
independent from the Topology (RC, ode B).

PRELIMINARY

Neighboring Plan Update Overview and procedure


preparation

In WPS ACCESS, a CP XML import Wizard allows the user to import the CP XML files.
This Wizard provides two options of import depending on the selection of the "Delete
un-impacted neighbouring links" field:

If "Delete un-impacted neighbouring links" is selected (re-build Mode): For all the
FDD Cells defined in the CP XML file, all the related neighboring Cells (UMTS and
GSM) defined in WPS ACCESS but not defined in the CP XML file will be deleted
by the Cell Planning Import Wizard.
If "Delete un-impacted neighbouring links" is not selected (update Mode): all the
neighboring Cells (UMTS and GSM) defined in the CP XML file will be updated (if
already defined in WPS ACCESS) or created (if not defined in WPS ACCESS) by the
Cell Planning Import Wizard.

Performing Reverse Engineering - Sheet 1


Purpose

This step details how to proceed with WPS ACCESS and the main server to import a
view of the current network configuration into WPS ACCESS if the WPS ACCESS view
is not up-to-date.
This is an optional, but recommended step. You can bypass it if you are sure that your
WPS ACCESS view is synchronized with the network. In this case, please go to the next
step.
Once the CM XML export is performed, no "on line" modifications can take place on the
target E(s) until the end of the overall procedure in order to guarantee that the initial
view, on which the procedure is based, is synchronous with the Main server MIB.
Input Parameters

one.
Initial status

WPS ACCESS is installed and ready to be used. The template files are uploaded.
Duration

Step duration depends on the number of E available on the network.

Importing a new Neighboring Plan under WPS Access - Sheet 2


Purpose

This step details how to proceed with WPS ACCESS in order to import the updated
neighboring plan.
Depending on the received format of the ew eighboring Plan, this step can be divided
in four actions:

The ew eighboring Plan is provided through a CP XML Snapshot file

The ew eighboring Plan is provided through a file in CM XML format


The ew eighboring Plan is provided through a Workorder, under WPS ACCESS,
in your Workspace
The ew eighboring Plan is provided through a Snapshot, under WPS ACCESS,
in your Workspace

Input parameters

All Design parameters regarding the new neighboring plan need to be provided to the
Application Engineer by the etwork Designers, i.e.

Cell planning information


eighboring information

All these information can be provided through CP XML snapshot file as described in the
Document [R4] or through a CM XML snapshot or workorder file following the CM
XML format described in [R2].
As a consequence the following Object information should be provided in the XML file:

UMTSFDDeighbouringCell
GSMCell if impacted
GSMeighbouringCell if impacted

BTSCell (Optional)
Site (Optional)
AntennaAccess (Optional)
AntennaSystem (optional)

PRELIMINARY

If the ew eighboring Plan is provided through a CP XML file, perform Step 1 only.
ote: If the option "Delete un-impacted neighbouring links" is chosen for CP XML
file import, for impacted FDD Cells the full list of neighbouring cells (GSM and
UMTS) must be provided.
If the ew eighboring Plan is provided through a CM XML file, perform Step 2 only.
