Transmission management in BSS is a feature used in managing the Base Station Subsystem transmission system functions such as supervision, alarms, statistics
and settings. The network element mainly responsible for transmission management in BSS is the Base Station Controller (BSC).
Transmission management functionalities make it possible for the operators to manage the transmission equipment remotely from the BSC or from Nokia
NetAct integrated network management system, which simplifies network maintenance and operation. Supervision functions help minimise the time spent in maintenance, and statistics collection helps the operators analyse and optimise
the use of their transmission equipment. Moreover, new software can be downloaded in a way that does not interfere with the traffic.

2.Hardware and software requirements
There are no specific hardware or software requirements for the transmission management functionalities. However, the type of the BTS poses certain
The BTS type specific functionalities are listed in the table below.
More details about the functionalities can be found in BSS transmission management functionalities .
Polling list sending with priority is a functionality used in positioning. To ensure accurate positioning calculations, the LMU unit must supply Radio Interface Timing System (RIT) information to the network faster than the normal Q1 polling is able to do. Faster LMU polling is achieved by defining a Q1 polling
priority for each Q1 device, with the LMU having the highest priority. For more information see Location Services .
3.BSS transmission network elements
The base Station Subsystem (BSS) consists of at least one Base Station Controller (BSC) and its Base Transceiver Stations (BTS). The Transcoder Submultiplexer
(TCSM) is also part of the BSS although it is actually located in the MSC site. The three basic configurations (topologies) for transmission between the BSC and
the BTSs are: point-to-point connection
multidrop chain multidrop loop
In point-to-point configuration each BTS is connected directly to the BSC. In the multidrop chain, BTSs form a chain and the first BTS in the network is connected directly to the BSC. In the loop connection, the BTSs form a loop where the first and the last BTS in the loop are connected directly to the BSC via a crossconnecting node. The topology used depends on a number of factors such as the distance between the BSC and the BTS, the number of transceivers (TRXs) used at a particular BTS site and the signalling channel rate between the BSC and the\ BTS. Usually the topology used is a mixture of the three basic topologies. Formore information on the topologies, refer to Nokia BSS Transmission\Configuration .
