Abstract: Cellular 3G-network usually often have poor penetration and response in certain areas such as indoors. A fem to cell is a device that is used to increase the strength of the wireless signal in a small area, mainly indoors. This is a small cellular base station, also known as a wireless access point that connects to the Internet connection and transmits it to the radio in the coverage area. Fem to cells can be deployed in different places and there is a need for a control system to ensure the possibility of FCAPS functionality for this device. Fem to device must be set up and registered on an element management system (EMS). In the process of configuring devices, bulk CM-file is produced, which is loaded and used by the fem to cell. This paper proposes a methodology to register the fem to cell and determine the status of bulk CM file.
