2 Overview

Overview

2.1 Background
The proportion of video services on a network is increasing continuously. When the cell load is
heavy, user experience with video playback deteriorates. For example, the video initial buffering
time is extended, and the number of video freezes increases. The Video Service Rate Adaption
feature reduces the video buffering time and the number of video freezes to improve user
experience.
When a considerable quantity of download services, such as P2P download, FTP download, and
HTTP download, are provided in a cell, these download services affect user experience with
high-priority services in the cell, such as web browsing, video playback, and over the top (OTT)
services. The Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature decreases the priority of download
services, thereby reducing the resource preemption of download services on high-priority
services and improving user experience with high-priority services.

2.2 Introduction
The Busy-Hour Download Rate Control and Video Service Rate Adaption features rely on a
service awareness device deployed in the evolved packet core (EPC) or a third-party service
awareness device. The service awareness device identifies download services and video services
and sets differentiated services code points (DSCPs) in the service packets based on the
identification results. The eNodeB parses these DSCPs to obtain the identification results and
performs differentiated QoS guarantee for download and video services.
Using the service awareness device, the Video Service Rate Adaption feature identifies HTTPbased video services and allocates required bandwidth to these services. This ensures smooth
video playback and improves user experience.

DSCP
The service awareness device sets DSCPs based on service type identification results. The
eNodeB parses the DSCPs to obtain the identification results.

2 Overview

SGBR
SGBR is short for service guaranteed bit rate, which is defined by Huawei. The SGBR guarantees
the rate of video services on non-GBR bearers and increases the priorities for video services
whose rates are lower than the SGBR.

SMBR
SMBR is short for service maximum bit rate, which is defined by Huawei. The SMBR controls
the rate of download services on non-GBR bearers and decreases the priorities for download
services whose rates have exceeded the SMBR. When a cell has sufficient resources and the
SMBR is set to a small value, the download service rate may exceed the SMBR.

2.3 Benefits
After the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature is enabled, the rate of download services
is restricted during busy hours to spare air interface resources for high-priority services and
improve user experience with high-priority services.
Enabling the Video Service Rate Adaption feature reduces the video buffering time, guarantees
the video service rate, and reduces the number of video freezes.

Technical Description

3.1 Introduction
Operators' networks provide diversified services. These services have different experience
requirements. Besides, operators are transforming from pipeline operations to experienceoriented operations. DSCP-based service differentiation is fundamental to experience-oriented
operations, and Video Service Rate Adaption and Busy-Hour Download Rate Control features
are specific implementation of service differentiation.

3.2 Principles
3.2.1 Service Type Identification and DSCP Setting
Operators integrate a service awareness device into the S-GW/P-GW or deploy a third-party
service awareness device for service type identification. After identifying service types, the
service awareness device sets the DSCPs in service packets to different values based on the
identification results. DSCPs are in the IP headers of service packets, as shown in Figure 3-1.

Figure 3-1 DSCP position

NOTE

After the Video Service Rate Adaption and Busy-Hour Download Rate Control features are enabled:
l Operators need to configure DSCPs for services on the eNodeB. The configured DSCP values and
corresponding service types must be the same as those configured on the service awareness device.
For example, if the service awareness device identifies a video service and sets the DSCP to 40, the
DSCP value 40 must be configured for video services on the eNodeB.
l If DSCPs are not configured for services on the eNodeB or the DSCP configuration on the eNodeB is
different from the DSCP configuration on the service awareness device, the eNodeB cannot map the
DSCPs in received service packets onto priority queues and the packets are put into priority queue 0
by default.
If the DSCP value of service packets is 0, the eNodeB cannot map the DSCPs in received service
packets onto priority queues and the packets are put into priority queue 0 by default.
l In RAN sharing scenarios, it is required that operators configure the same or totally different DSCPs
on their separate service awareness devices. For example, if operator A configures the DSCP value 40
for video services and the DSCP value 10 for download services, operator B is allowed to configure
the DSCP value 42 for video services and the DCSP value 12 for download services. If operator A
configures the DSCP value 40 for video services, operator B is not allowed to configure the DSCP
value 40 for download services.

3.2.2 Differentiated Scheduling


The Busy-Hour Download Rate Control and Video Service Rate Adaption features are
implemented based on differentiated scheduling on the eNodeB. The options of the
CELLALGOSWITCH.ServiceDiffSwitch parameter must be selected to enable the features.
Differentiated scheduling consists of PDCP-based differentiated queue scheduling and Media
Access Control (MAC) scheduling. (PDCP is short for Packet Data Convergence Protocol.)
PDCP-based differentiated queue scheduling implements scheduling of multiple services within

a bearer. MAC scheduling implements scheduling among bearers. Figure 3-2 shows the overall
scheduling scheme.
Figure 3-2 Differentiated scheduling scheme

PDCP-based differentiated queue scheduling involves eight queues, for which weights can be
set by specifying the values of the SERVICEDIFFSETTING.QueueWeight0 to
SERVICEDIFFSETTING.QueueWeight7 parameters. In PDCP-based differentiated queue
scheduling, the eNodeB dynamically calculates the overall service weight based on the queue
weight and queue rate. The overall service weight has an impact on the MAC scheduling weight.
The scheduling priority factors (indicated by STANDARDQCI.DlschPriorityFactor) carried
by each non-GBR service are different. Therefore, the priorities for different services are
calculated by the following formula: STANDARDQCI.DlschPriorityFactor x Overall service
weight. In practical use, operators may use different non-GBR bearers to implement the QoS
for gold, silver, and bronze subscribers. The product of the overall service weight and scheduling
priority factors must be considered during service planning to check whether the product meets
the QoS requirements of operators on subscribers.
NOTE

PDCP-based differentiated queue scheduling applies only to non-GBR services.

3.2.3 Video Service Rate Adaption


When the network is congested, the video service rate for some UEs with good radio signal
quality is lower than the SGBR and the video buffering time is long or video freezes occur. In
this case, the Video Service Rate Adaption feature ensures that the video service rate
approximates the SGBR if the purchased video traffic volume is sufficient, thereby improving
user experience.
When the network load is light and UEs playing videos receive good-quality radio signals, the
video service rates for these UEs reach or exceed the SGBR. In this situation, the eNodeB does
not decrease the bearer weights to limit the video service rates to the SGBR.
When the VideoRateAdaptSwitch(VideoRateAdaptSwitch) option of the
CELLALGOSWITCH.ServiceDiffSwitch parameter is selected, the Video Service Rate
Adaption feature is enabled.
The video service rate is ensured by means of initial acceleration in the first phase and normalrate guarantee in the second phase. When the IPSERVICEQOS.QosPolicyTimeSwitch

parameter is set to ON(ON), phase-based service rate guarantee is enabled. The following
describes initial acceleration and normal-rate guarantee.

Initial Acceleration
When a video is opened, the initial service rate is low and it takes some time before the video
playback starts. To accelerate the initial video download rate and reduce the video buffering
time, the eNodeB increases the scheduling weight for video services so that the video download
rate soon reaches the target rate (SGBR 1) in the first phase shown in Figure 3-3. When a video
stream initially starts, the eNodeB uses the first-phase QoS policy specified by the
IPSERVICEQOS.FirQosPolicyId parameter and accelerates the service rate for a duration
specified by the IPSERVICEQOS.FirQosPolicyTimeLength parameter. The
IPSERVICEQOS.FirQosPolicyTimeLength parameter can be adjusted based on the
acceleration effect, and you are advised to set this parameter to 8s. If the initial video download
takes a long time, increase the value of the IPSERVICEQOS.FirQosPolicyTimeLength or
QOSPOLICY.DlSgbr parameter for initial acceleration. It is recommended that the
QOSPOLICY.DlSgbr parameter be set to a value two times of the video bitrate for initial
acceleration.
You are advised not to set the IPSERVICEQOS.FirQosPolicyTimeLength parameter to an
excessively large value to prevent waste of radio resources. Similarly, you are advised not to set
the SGBR to an excessively large value for the normal-rate guarantee phase to prevent waste of
radio resources.

Normal-Rate Guarantee
After initial acceleration, the eNodeB uses the second-phase QoS policy specified by the
IPSERVICEQOS.SecQosPolicyId parameter to ensure the service rate. When the service rate
is less than SGBR 2 shown in Figure 3-3, the eNodeB increases the scheduling weight for the
bearer carrying the video service. When the service rate reaches or exceeds SGBR 2, the eNodeB
decreases the scheduling weight to prevent excessive bandwidth usage. If the resources are
sufficient, the eNodeB ensures that the service rate is not less than SGBR 2. Admission control
is not performed based on SGBR 2, which is not absolutely guaranteed.
It is recommended that the QOSPOLICY.DlSgbr parameter be set to a value 1.1 to 1.2 times
of the video bitrate for normal-rate guarantee.
NOTE

Different types of video services have different requirements for resolution and code formats and therefore
requires different video bitrates. If the service awareness device can differentiate video bitrates, it is
recommended that the service awareness device set different DSCPs for video services of different bitrates
so that different SGBRs can be configured for video services of different bitrates. If the service awareness
device cannot differentiate video bitrates, it is recommended that DlSgbr be set based on the large video
bitrates used by OTT video websites.

3.2.4 Busy-Hour Download Rate Control


When the DownLoadRateLimitSwitch(DownLoadRateLimitSwitch) option of the
CELLALGOSWITCH.ServiceDiffSwitch parameter is selected, the Busy-Hour Download
Rate Control feature is enabled.
SMBR-based rate control is implemented for low-value services such as P2P download, FTP
download, and HTTP download. When the download service rate exceeds the download service
rate control threshold specified by the QOSPOLICY.DlSmbr parameter, the eNodeB reduces
the number of packets in the download service queue or decreases the download service queue
weight to decrease the download service rate until the download is complete. When the download
service rate of a UE has not reached the value of the QOSPOLICY.DlSmbr parameter, the
eNodeB does not decrease the download service rate of the UE. It is recommended that the
QOSPOLICY.DlSmbr parameter be set to the average download service rate achieved before
the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature is enabled. The parameter value can be adjusted
based on the network plan.
This configured SMBR is only a threshold for rate control and the download service rate is not
strictly kept below the SMBR. When resources are sufficient, good user experience with
download services can be ensured. During busy hours or when a large number of high-priority
users are using services, the SMBR-based rate control can reduce the amount of resources
occupied by download services and thereby improve user experience with high-priority services.
If the SMBR is greater than the download service rate achieved before the Busy-Hour Download
Rate Control feature is enabled, the eNodeB does not decrease the scheduling weight for
download services.

In Figure 3-4, the SMBR is set to a value close to or slightly below the maximum of the busyhour average download service rates achieved before the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control
feature is enabled. Before the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature is enabled, the
download service rate fluctuates around the SMBR, as indicated by line 1. After the Busy-Hour
Download Rate Control feature is enabled, the eNodeB decreases the scheduling weight for the
download service when the download service rate exceeds the SMBR. As a result, the download
service rate also decreases, as indicated by line 2.
Figure 3-5 Download service rate control (2)

In Figure 3-5, the SMBR is set to an excessively small value, for example, a value less than
30% of the maximum of the busy-hour average download service rates achieved before the BusyHour Download Rate Control feature is enabled. Before the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control
feature is enabled, the download service rate is about two times the SMBR, as indicated by line
3. After the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature is enabled, the download service rate
decreases when the download service rate exceeds the SMBR but is still greater than the SMBR,
as indicated by line 4.

Network Impact

5.1 LOFD-081202 Busy-Hour Download Rate Control


System Capacity
This feature decreases the scheduling weight for download services and therefore decreases the
download service rate. As a result, the rate of high-priority services increases.
The change in cell capacity is related to the radio environment of the UEs using download
services and the proportion of the download traffic in the cell. If the UEs using download services
are located in areas with good signal quality, the cell capacity decreases. If the UEs using
download services are located in areas with poor signal quality, the cell capacity increases. When
the SMBR is set to a small value, the download service rate decreases obviously, resulting in a
big change in the cell capacity.
For example, cell congestion is simulated for a cell for which the SMBR is set to 500 kbit/s.
There are three UEs (UE A, UE B, and UE C) in the cell. UE A is located at the cell center, UE
B is located at the cell edge, and UE C is located halfway between the cell center and cell edge.
Assume that UE A is using download services, UE B is using video services, and UE C is using
other services. Before the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature is enabled, the cell
throughput is 2.2 Mbit/s. After the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature is enabled, the
cell throughput is 1.8 Mbit/s, with a 14% decrease in cell capacity. Assume that UE A is using
video services, UE B is using download services, and UE C is using other services. The cell
capacity does not change after the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature is enabled. The
reason for the unchanged cell capacity is that the download services are started later, the
download service rate is less than the SMBR, and therefore the scheduling weight is not
decreased for the download services.

Network Performance
This feature decreases the scheduling weight for download services and therefore decreases the
download service rate. If a download peak rate is set, you are advised not to enable this feature
during download service performance evaluation.

If the UEs using video services are located in areas with good signal quality, the cell capacity
increases. If the UEs using video services are located in areas with poor signal quality, the cell
capacity decreases. When the SGBR is set to a large value, the video service rate increases
obviously, resulting in a big change in the cell capacity.
For example, cell congestion is simulated for a cell for which the SGBR is set to 2 Mbit/s. There
are three UEs (UE A, UE B, and UE C) in the cell. UE A is located at the cell center, UE B is
located at the cell edge, and UE C is located halfway between the cell center and cell edge.
Assume that UE A is using download services, UE B is using video services, and UE C is using
other services. Before the Video Service Rate Adaption feature is enabled, the cell throughput
is 2.2 Mbit/s. After the Video Service Rate Adaption feature is enabled, the cell throughput is
1.5 Mbit/s, with a 32% decrease in cell capacity. Assume that UE A is using video services, UE
B is using download services, and UE C is using other services. The cell capacity increases by
10% after the Video Service Rate Adaption feature is enabled.

Network Performance
This feature increases the scheduling weight for video services, ensuring that the video service
rate approximates the SGBR. When the amount of downlink services required by various types
of services in a cell is greater than the available amount of downlink resources in the cell, this
feature decreases the rates of other non-GBR services and increases the average GBR service
delay without affecting the GBR. When the amount of downlink services required by various
types of services in a cell is less than the available amount of downlink resources in the cell, this
feature does not affect other types of services.
Enabling the Video Service Rate Adaption feature reduces the video buffering time, guarantees
the video service rate, and reduces the number of video freezes.
For example, cell congestion is simulated for a cell for which the first-phase SGBR is set to 2.5
Mbit/s. In the cell, there are three UEs separately performing FTP download, P2P download,
and video services. After the Video Service Rate Adaption feature is enabled, the initial video
download delay decreases by 35%.

6.1 LOFD-081202 Busy-Hour Download Rate Control


6.1.1 When to Use Busy-Hour Download Rate Control
The Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature decreases the traffic volume proportion of
download services in a cell and improves user experience with high-priority services. If the
traffic volume of download services in a cell accounts for 20% of the total traffic volume in the
cell regardless of whether this occurs during busy hours or off-peak hours, you are advised to
enable the Busy-Hour Download Rate Control feature. After this feature is enabled, the eNodeB
decreases the download service rate when the download service rate exceeds the SMBR. If the
cell is heavily loaded, the download service rate decreases considerably. If the cell is lightly
loaded, the download service rate decreases slightly. It is recommended that the SMBR be set
to the average download service rate achieved before this feature is enabled.
The SMBR value depends on operators' policies in controlling download services. The cell
average rate during busy hours can be used as a reference for SMBR. It is recommended that
the smaller value between operators' expected rate limit and cell average rate during busy hours
be used as the SMBR value.

6.1.2 Required Information


This feature relies on a service awareness device deployed in the EPC or a third-party service
awareness device to identify service types. Before using this feature, verify that the service
awareness device can identify major services (for example, download services) on the operator's
network and encrypted services such as HTTPS. If the service awareness device cannot identify
the major services or encrypted services, you are advised not to use this feature.
Before using this feature, obtain the service distribution statistics collected by the service
awareness device and the traffic volume proportion of download services. For example, a
Huawei service awareness device deployed in the EPC can use EPSN seven-layer parsing
performance counters to collect the statistics.
(Optional) Collect service key quality indicator (KQI) information.
If the operator's EPC is capable of KQI evaluation or an independent KQI evaluation device is
deployed, use the related EPC device or the KQI evaluation device to obtain downloading KQIs,

6.2 LOFD-081203 Video Service Rate Adaption


6.2.1 When to Use Video Service Rate Adaption
The gain provided by this feature varies with the cell load and the proportion of video services.
Use Video Service Rate Adaption in the following scenarios:
l

The video traffic volume in a cell accounts for 40% or less of the total traffic volume in the
cell and the video service rates for some UEs are less than the SGBR.

During busy hours, the average single-UE throughput is less than 1.5 Mbit/s in a cell and
the cell load is high, for example, the physical resource block (PRB) usage is greater than
60%.

When video services are enabled and the video services to be guaranteed accounts for high
proportion (such as 20%), it is recommended that service identification be performed on
delay-sensitive services such as web services and higher priorities are used to guarantee
delay-sensitive services.

It is recommended that the QosPolicy.DlSgbr parameter be set to a value two times of the
video bitrate for initial acceleration. You are advised not to set the SGBR for video services
to an excessively large value to prevent waste of radio resources.

It is recommended that the QosPolicy.DlSgbr parameter be set to a value 1.1 to 1.2 times
of the video bitrate for normal rate guarantee. You are advised not to set the SGBR for
video services to an excessively large value to prevent waste of radio resources.

The initial acceleration time can be configured according to site requirements. It is


recommended that this parameter be set to 8s. You are advised not to set this parameter to
an excessively large value to prevent waste of radio resources.

6.2.2 Required Information


This feature relies on a service awareness device deployed in the EPC or a third-party service
awareness device to identify service types. Before using this feature, verify that the service
awareness device can identify major services (for example, video services) on the operator's
network and encrypted services such as HTTPS. If the service awareness device cannot identify
the major services or encrypted services, you are advised not to use this feature.
Before using this feature, obtain the service distribution statistics collected by the service
awareness device and the traffic volume proportion of video services. For example, a Huawei
service awareness device deployed in the EPC can use EPSN seven-layer parsing performance
counters to collect the statistics.
You need to obtain the video bitrates that require adjustment from OTT video websites or the
service awareness device and set the DlSgbr parameter for this feature based on the obtained
video bitrates. If video services with different resolution are performed on a network, it is
recommended that the video bitrate with the highest proportion acts as the reference for SGBR.
The following table lists common video bitrate, which is for reference only.

1.

Before this feature is enabled, the L.Thrp.bits.DL.Pri.6 and L.Thrp.Time.DL.Pri.6 counters


do not have valid values. When this feature is enabled, you are advised to set all queue
weights to the same value and all service types to OTHER. For detailed operations, see
follow-up procedures.

2.

Record the values of the L.Thrp.bits.DL.Pri.6 and L.Thrp.Time.DL.Pri.6 counters at the


end of a measurement period, and divide the value of the L.Thrp.bits.DL.Pri.6 counter
by the value of the L.Thrp.Time.DL.Pri.6 counter to obtain the throughput.

VIDEO for video services.

4.

Record the values of the L.Thrp.bits.DL.Pri.6 and L.Thrp.Time.DL.Pri.6 counters again


at the end of a measurement period, and divide the value of the L.Thrp.bits.DL.Pri.6
counter by the value of the L.Thrp.Time.DL.Pri.6 counter to obtain the throughput.

5.

Compare the recorded two values of the L.Thrp.bits.DL.Pri.6 counter and the two
throughput values to check whether the traffic volume and throughput have increased.

6.

If Huawei EPC devices are used, you can evaluate the feature gain by checking whether
the KQIs indicating the video stream initial buffering time and the number of video freezes
have decreased.

The operation procedures are as follows:


1.

Turn on the switch for the Video Service Rate Adaption feature.

MOD CELLALGOSWITCH:
LocalCellId=xx,ServiceDiffSwitch=VideoRateAdaptSwitch-1&DownLoadRateLimitSwitch0;
2. Configure a QoS policy for video services, with the traffic type set to OTHER and Priority
Queue Identity set to QUEUE6.
ADD QOSPOLICY: QosPolicyId=1,TrafficType=OTHER,PriQueueId=QUEUE6;
3. Configure a mapping between the DSCP and the QoS policy for video services.
ADD IPSERVICEQOS:Dscp=52, Description=" Video Service", QosPolicyTimeSwitch=OFF,
FirQosPolicyId=1;
4. Set all queue weights to the same value.
MOD SERVICEDIFFSETTING: QueueWeight0=5, QueueWeight1=5, QueueWeight2=5,
QueueWeight3=5, QueueWeight4=5, QueueWeight5=5, QueueWeight6=5, QueueWeight7=5;
5. Obtain the L.Thrp.bits.DL.Pri.6 and L.Thrp.Time.DL.Pri.6 counters before the video
function switch is turned on. It is recommended that the busy-hour counters of at least one day
are obtained.
After step 5 is performed, the baseline parameters before the feature takes effect are collected.
The follow-up procedures are performed to collect parameters after the feature takes effect.
6. Configure the video speed adjustment parameters and two policies for video services with
one policy used in initial acceleration and the other policy used in normal-rate guarantee (Queue
6 is used as an example.)
ADD QOSPOLICY:
QosPolicyId=2,TrafficType=VIDEO,PriQueueId=QUEUE6,DlSgbr=4000;
ADD QOSPOLICY:
QosPolicyId=3,TrafficType=VIDEO,PriQueueId=QUEUE6,DlSgbr=2500;
7. Configure a mapping between the DSCP and the QoS policy for video services.
MOD IPSERVICEQOS:Dscp=52, Description=" Video Service", QosPolicyTimeSwitch=ON,

L.Thrp.bits.DL.Pri.6/L.Thrp.Time.DL.Pri.6) be used for video services.

6.2.5 Parameter Optimization


Adjusting the SGBR for Video Services
If initial acceleration effect is not satisfactory or the video bitrate changes, adjusts the SGBR for
video services. For example, to reduce the initial video download delay, you can increase the
SGBR for initial acceleration.
MOD QOSPOLICY: QosPolicyId=40, DlSgbr=6000;

Adjusting the Queue Weight for Video Services


In addition to SGBR adjustment, the queue weight for video services can be adjusted to increase
the scheduling priority of video services. Before you adjust the weight, you are advised to run
the LST SERVICEDIFFSETTING command to query the current queue weights to ensure
that the sum of the weights does not exceed 100 after the adjustment. To adjust the queue weight
for video services, run the following command:
MOD SERVICEDIFFSETTING: QueueWeight6=30;
