1 226 Abis D-Channel Measurement


The Abis D-channel measurement provides information on the end-to-end performance
of the Abis transmission connection. It includes information on framing errors and transmitted octets together with uplink UI and I frame information of Abis D-channels.

g When submultiplexing of Abis timeslots is used in the BTS, note that measurements
cannot be collected per each single multiplexed D-channel separately. Instead, one
of the D-channels acts as a master channel and the statistics of all the multiplexed
D-channels are collected on that channel.
In practice, this concerns the BTSPlus.
