4  Data Link LayerWord‑p. 8

4.1  ATM Transport Option

ATM shall be used in the transport network user plane and the transport network control plane according to ITU-T Recommendation I.361 [7].

4.1.1  Protection Switching at ATM Layer |R5|

If redundancy of pathways at ATM layer between RNC and Node B is supported, it shall be implemented using ATM Protection Switching according to ITU-T Recommendation I.630 [8].

4.2  Data Link Layer for IP Transport Option

An RNC or Node B supporting IP Transport Option shall support the PPP protocol with HDLC framing (IETF RFC 1661 [16], IETF RFC 1662 [17]).
An RNC or Node B supporting IP transport option and having interfaces connected via low bandwidth PPP links like E1/T1/J1 shall also support IP Header Compression (IETF RFC 2507 [18]) and the PPP extensions ML/MC-PPP (IETF RFC 1990 [19], IETF RFC 2686 [20]). In this case, negotiation of header compression (IETF RFC 2507 [18]) over PPP shall be performed via (IETF RFC 3544 [30]).

5  Iub Data Transport for Common Transport Channel Data Streams

5.1  Introduction

This subclause specifies the transport layers that support Common Transport Channel (FACH, RACH, PCH, DSCH, HS-DSCH, USCH [TDD]) data streams.
There are two options for protocol suites for transport of RACH, FACH, USCH [TDD], DSCH and HS-DSCH Iub data streams:
  1. ATM Transport Option
  2. IP Transport Option
The following figure 1 shows the protocol stacks of these two options:
(not reproduced yet)

Up

5.2  ATM Transport OptionWord‑p. 9

ATM and AAL2 (ITU-T Rec. I.363.2 [1] and ITU-T Rec. I.366.1 [2]) are used at the standard transport layer for Iub RACH, FACH, PCH, DSCH [TDD], USCH [TDD], HS-DSCH data streams.
The Service Specific Segmentation and Reassembly (SSSAR) sublayer is used for the segmentation and reassembly of AAL2 SDUs (i.e. SSSAR is only considered from ITU-T Recommendation I.366.1 [2]).

5.3  IP Transport Option |R5|

UDP (IETF RFC 768 [12]) over IP shall be supported as the transport for RACH, FACH, PCH, DSCH [TDD], USCH [TDD] and HS-DSCH data streams on Iub Interface. The data link layer is as specified in chapter 4.2
An IP UTRAN node shall support IPv6 (IETF RFC 2460 [13]). The support of IPv4 (IETF RFC 791 [14]) is optional.
IP dual stack is recommended for the potential transition period from IPv4 to IPv6 in the transport network.
The transport bearer is identified by the UDP port number and the IP address (source UDP port number, destination UDP port number, source IP address, destination IP address).
The source IP address and destination IP address exchanged via Radio Network Layer on the Iur/Iub interface shall use the NSAP structure. See sub clause 6.1.8.2 of TS 25.401.
IP Differentiated Services code point marking (IETF RFC 2474 [15]) shall be supported. The mapping between traffic categories and Diffserv code points shall be configurable by O&M for each traffic category. Traffic categories are implementation-specific and may be determined from the application parameters.
IP multicast (IETF RFC 3376 [28], IETF RFC 3810 [29]) may be supported for FACH data streams on Iub Interface if the security of RAN will not be compromised. This can be guaranteed in a closed IP based RAN.

6  Iub Transport Signalling Application for Common Transport Channel Data StreamsWord‑p. 10

6.1  Introduction

This subclause specifies the transport signalling protocol(s) used to establish the user plane transport bearers. The protocol stack is shown in clause 7 (figure 2).

6.2  Transport Signalling in case of ATM Transport Option

Q.2630.2 as developed by ITU-T [9] is selected as the standard AAL2 signalling protocol for Iub. ITU-T Recommendation Q.2630.2 [9] adds new optional capabilities to ITU-T Recommendation Q.2630.1 [3].
Binding ID provided by the radio network layer shall be copied in SUGR parameter of ESTABLISH.request primitive of ITU-T Rec. Q.2630.2 [9]. The binding identifier shall already be assigned and tied to a radio application procedure when the Establish Request message is received over the Iub interface in the Node B.
User Plane Transport bearers are established and in all normal cases released by the ALCAP in the Controlling RNC. The Node B shall initiate release of the user plane transport bearers for the removed common channels that were remaining within the cell when the cell is deleted.
AAL2 transport layer addressing is based on embedded E.164 (ITU-T Rec. E.164 [27]) or other AESA variants of the NSAP addressing format (ITU-T Rec. E.191 [10], ITU-T Rec. X.213 [11]). Native E.164 addressing (ITU-T Rec. E.164 [27]) shall not be used.
If there is an AAL2 switching function in the transport network layer of the interface, the Link Characteristics parameter (LC) shall be included in the Establish Request message and in the Modification Request message of AAL2 signalling protocol.
If there is an AAL2 switching function in the transport network layer of the interface, the Path Type parameter (PT) may be included in the Establish Request message of AAL2 signalling protocol for prioritisation at ATM level.
If the value in either the Maximum CPS-SDU Bit Rate or the Average CPS-SDU Bit Rate of the Link Characteristics (LC) in AAL2 signalling messages as specified in reference ITU-T Rec. Q.2630.2 [9] is 2048 Kbit/s, it shall be interpreted as bit rate 2048 Kbit/s or higher.
Up

6.3  Transport Signalling in case of IP Transport Option |R5|

An ALCAP protocol is not required in case both UTRAN Nodes (RNC and Node B) are using the IP Transport Option.

7  Signalling Bearer for ALCAP on Iub Interface

7.1  Introduction

This subclause specifies the signalling bearer protocol stack which supports the ALCAP.

7.2  Signalling Bearer in ATM Transport OptionWord‑p. 11

SAAL-UNI is the standard signalling bearer for the AAL Type Signalling protocol (ITU-T Rec. Q.2630.2 [9]) on Iub (ITU-T Rec. Q.2110 [4], ITU-T Rec. Q.2130 [5]). The protocol stack is shown in figure 2.
(not reproduced yet)
Figure 2: Transport Network Control plane protocol structure on Iub in case of ATM Transport Option
Up
The signalling transport converter (STC) relevant for Iub is ITU-T Recommendation Q.2150.2 [6]. The AAL5 Common Part contains CPCS and SAR.

7.3  Signalling Bearer in IP Transport Option |R5|

An ALCAP protocol is not required in case of both UTRAN Nodes (RNC and Node B) are using the IP Transport Option.

8  Interworking between ATM and IP Transport Options |R5|

An RNC or Node B supporting IP transport option shall provide interworking to an RNC or Node B supporting only ATM transport option. The interworking alternatives are defined in TS 25.426.
