THE TECHNICAL FIELD

The presented invention relates generally to methods for testing in the mobile telecommunications system and, in particular, to a method for the automatic testing of the base p is Arkenstone testing of the communication network and control system", describes a standard way of testing a communication network. According to the patent 013 Central control system associated with many distant points of contact, automatically monitors the network, including all their constituent elements, and regularly adjusts the status of each item. The Central control system performs automatic testing at selected contact points on the network without the need for operator intervention. In addition, there is provision of manual operator's commands to perform specific tests and monitoring.

As described above, standard methods of test control every point of contact with the Central control system associated with multiple points of contact. Standard methods of testing, however, are sometimes difficult to use in a mobile telecommunications system comprising a complex subsystem and a set of elements. Furthermore, the method can test many systems at the same time and cannot produce results that are not classified according to the system before data output.

Fig.1 illustrates a hierarchical structure of a typical mobile telecommunication system, use the (50, 51), base transceiver stations (BTS) (40, 41), base station controllers (BSC) (30, 31) and the switching center mobile objects (MSC) (20). Each BTS provides the communication service to mobile stations within the appropriate working of the service area, and the MSC is connected to BSCs that are consistent BTSs with the public switched telephone network (PSTN) (10). BTSs and BSCs are grouped with a single BTS.

The operator controls the base transceiver stations, distributed in a wide geographical area through the base station management (BSM) (not shown). BSM is associated with multiple BTSs (40, 41) and BSCs (30, 31) for controlling the system functions and maintenance.

The operator is able to determine the status of each station and each BSC through BSM and can test the function of any BTS associated with the BSM. The various functions of the BTSs and BSCs described in Fig.2, which includes some elements of test data that can be run through BSM (see data item 1).

Each base transceiver station (BTS) and each base station controller (BSC) include multiple processors that are tested individually according to the specified data elements test. BSC includes processor selector and vocoder (SVP) and General processor signaling channel (CSP). The elements of the test data associated with the BSC can be in General classified in the test setup initial data initialization (bit 1, Fig.2) and output of the system state (bit 2, Fig.2).

Testing the installation source data initialization, bit 1, further comprises testing the loading, discharge 1.1, and the test is restarted, the discharge 1.2. The discharge test load includes backup testing load testing load SSR testing load ASR testing download SIP, and testing download SVP, and testing load CSP. Testing restart includes the restart command in the result of human interaction with the machine (MMS), reset by hardware reset and the output history (history) download.

The output of system status, bit 2, include testing output data about an emergency condition, restriction/version output failure message, limited output, history (history) of the accident, the sound of emergency restriction/edition emergency function continue/increase the output of the list of damages, limitation/version output reports of damage, limited vychodne history data (history) state, output the version number and so on.

According to the standard methods of testing inevitably some operations are unnecessary when performing a test data item. For example, the operator enters a command that is defined for the individual element test data and the corresponding parameter range (e.g., BSCs from 0 to 3 and SVPs from 0 to 3, and so on), and the test results are displayed in BSM. BSM analyzes the test results to determine whether the test normally. When testing another data item specific sub-operation from the previous test unnecessarily repeated.

Therefore, for proper testing BTS operator must enter all the commands of the test data item, referring to the instructions. Since this is a long process, to overcome this problem for the operator should be used only for those systems that must be tested.

In addition, for each functional teams testing the basic parameters must be entered again. Because messages about the accident and the condition is intermittent come from all systems associated with the corresponding device Upravleniye) test results after identification of the required systems, to see the test results of the selected systems.

A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

In the present invention, each of the teams test for testing the BTS and its internal components is a small element of data and small data items are grouped according to their types for the education of the average STE a wide class big data item. In other words, big data item includes numerous medium-sized data elements, and the average data item further includes many small data items. A small element of data that is the most narrow element of data is a separate command.

Fig. 2 illustrates a hierarchical structure of data elements test. For example, testing the installation source data (initialization) and the output of the system state are large data items. Testing the installation source data further includes podcastready, such as test load and test restart, and podcastready are average data elements. The test loading, one of the secondary data elements further includes a small number of data elements, such as back testing load testing load SSR testing download billing, etc.

Therefore, the user selects not only a certain small data item, but also the average data element, including a few small items or a large data item that includes several medium-sized data elements. If the user vybere data are performed simultaneously. When selecting a largest element data are average data elements grouped as a major element data. For example, if the test load is selected and executed, are all back testing load testing load SSR testing download billing, etc.

According to the invention a method for automated testing BTS in General includes the operator performing the test save test results and conclusion of test results. In addition, the operator classifies all commands provided by the device of the base station management (BSM). Each team testing is defined in the form of a small element of data. Several small data items are grouped together in the form of secondary data item. Several medium-sized data elements are grouped together in the form of a large data item. For example, the operator can perform many small data items by performing the average of the data element, including small data items.

Such procedures are summarized, and the settings are saved by default, when the operator again performs the testing, following the same p the diagram, illustrating a method of automatic testing base transceiver station (BTS) according to the invention. At operation 110, when the operator starts the test, he enters his/her own identification and password. The entered identification and password supplied by the operator, identified at operation 110. When identification and password are not identical with the registered version, the operator can not login into the system, and the error message is displayed at operation 120. This process prevents unregistered operator to perform testing.

At operation 130, when the identification and password are correct, the operator provides input parameter of the system, which is verified in accordance with the range of identification systems or devices, which are going to test. If the system parameter is not entered by the operator during operation 140 uses the system parameter by default. If the system parameter is entered, the parameter can be saved as default values when the operation 150. The save system parameter is optional. System settings and devices, which are often tested, can be saved as C is 160. The data elements of the test group in a multi-layer hierarchy. The choice of a specific level of testing automatically calls the subordinate test corresponding to the selected level. All selected teams performed during the same operation 170.

For example, if the operator selects the test load (see data element 1.1 Fig. 2), six sub tests, including back testing load testing load SSR testing load ASR testing download SIP, testing download SVP and testing load CSP are automatically executed during operation 170.

During the testing process the test results are automatically saved when the operation 180 and displayed at operation 190. The saved results can be re-called and examined by the operator. The test results are classified according to the BSC or BTS that the operator selects.

According to the invention the method of testing base transceiver stations further includes the function of saving the default settings, through this eliminates the need to re-enter the basic parameters, oposredstvovaniya according to identification systems BSCs and BTSs, which the operator selects so that the test results associated with other BSCs and BTSs, accidentally saved or not displayed.

Testing base transceiver station are carried out more quickly and more accurately by simultaneous execution of commands relevant to a large data item, which selects the operator.
