Abstract

The deployment of Universal Mobile Telecommuni- cations System (UMTS) node B based on UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access (UTRA) technology re- quires the connection of node B to the RNC that serves a multitude of node B (figure 1). The physical connection is made by landlines or microwave con- nections. On top of this physical layer, a protocol is used to transmit user and control data (ATM or IP).
