Testing The Installation
- Confirm that all hardware and software has been properly installed.
Hardware connectivity check
Login through the console on the ASN-GW and test the following.
- Is the BTS is reachable from the ASN-GW. with the default IP setting
- ping the BTS interface
- measure the round trip times
- Power cycle the BTS through the use of stop and start scripts.
- Perform a hard reset if required (if updated parameter values are not reflected).
- Ping the outside interface and see if the DMZ gateway is reachable from the ASN-GW
After successful completion we know that the ASN is able to send traffic both downlink to the IDU and outbound towards the internet.
Test the RF Transmission
- Scan on the client and check if the basestation's signal is seen using the procedure described below. If we are able to connect step 2 can be ignored. Else try step 2.
Configure driver at the client to ensure all required parameters are configured correctly.
- Change the /etc/asnctrl_service_class.conf to include client and service class information.
- possibly include SSID to match with the BTS
- Check center frequency to match with the BTS
- Enable (locks) if any
- Disable wifi if operating on a dual mode card (since quite a few times they work in a mutually exclusive mode)
- Enable a static IP setting at the client to allow for baseline IP connectivity
- If possible sweep the spectrum through an analyzer to determine proper transmission at the center frequency.
- Vary transmit power at the BTS using wiset calls on the BTS or through the web interface and then measure the corresponding changes on the analyzer.
