1. When you first enter the Local Management Interface (LMI), you are required to select the appropriate working mode. Click the Modify button to choose LTE enb.

LMI select working mode

2. Select the LTE enb working mode and click the Save button.

Enable LTE enb working mode

LTE enb Radio configuration

3. Click the ENB Configuration tab. In the Radio - eNodeB section you must set up the following parameters:

  • the eNodeB ID - it must be a 20 bits unique ID. The value is concatenated with the PLMN ID to create a 44-bit global eNodeB identity.
  • the Mobile Country Code (MCC), for example: 001 for a test network.
  • the Mobile Network Code (MNC), for example: 01 for a test network.
  • the Tracking Area Code (TAC).
  • the Cell Identity, 7 digits in length, for example: 0000001.
  • the LTE Band
  • the Bandwidth
  • the EARFCN (Downlink EARFCN), which must be compatible to the selected band. The Uplink EARFCN will be set automatically. For example: EARFCN 2525 in Band 5.
  • the NID1 (Network Identity 1), with a value between 1 and 167.
  • the NID2 (Network Identity 2), with a value between: 0, 1 or 2.

For example:

  • if you are in Europe, Middle East, Asia, Africa or Oceania, change the Band to 8 (a typical operating band for the Americas), to avoid local interference.
  • if you are in the Americas, change the Band to 5 (a typical operating band for the rest of the world), to avoid local interference.

For more information, go back to step 2 in the Assembling your LabKit section.

Settings of the photos below will connect your YateENB to Hosted Core

IP addresses starting with 100.127. are OpenVPN private addresses. Your LTE LabKit is already connected to Hosted Core and with these settings you will use Hosted Core as MME.

Be aware that your LTE LabKit OpenVPN IP address won't be, pick up from each drop-down your assigned IP address.

LTE -> Core -> GTP settings
LTE -> Core -> MME settings
