ALU 9370 RNC & 9353 WMS Training – A new way in managing NodeBs September 1, 2009

Posted by admin in : AT&T , 6comments

I was sent to a 4-day training last week in Phoenix about the new RNC being deployed in all AT&T Mobility markets. RNC 9370 is a robust hardware that is capable of handling existing NodeBs in AT&T Mobility Network. The RNC 9370 comes in a single and dual in one cabinet. See picture below.



The Operations, Administration, Maintenance and Provisioning (OAM&P) is being done using WMS (Wireless Management System). The Wireless Management System (WMS) delivers an integrated UMTS management platform through which all Network Elements (NEs), or NodeBs, are monitored and controlled. It provides the complete end-to-end management solution for UMTS networks. The WMS manages the entire UMTS network which is divided into the UTRAN and core (circuit and packet) areas. The Access Network OAM manages the UTRAN part of the network.

The deployment of these RNC started in 2008 and by end of 2009 or early 2010 it would have installed around 200, replacing the existing RNC 5200, in all of the AT&T regions. The deployment is an upgrade to ensure network reliability and performance.
