1 4 Handover Measurement
The handover measurement registers information about the number of handovers (HO)
controlled by the mobile switching centre (MSC) or the base station controller (BSC).
The recorded items of data comprise the number of the incoming, outgoing, or intra-cell
HOs, and the number of successful and unsuccessful attempts, seizures, and HOs. The
HOs are sorted according to direction, where appropriate. This measurement type
collects one set of results for each BTS. Signalling charts are drawn with the accuracy
of message interface.

from the MS concerning - the start of channel blocking - the A interface speech circuits
- state changes of the BSSAP subsystem - an abnormal release of the SCCP connec-
tion
d) When the call is cleared during the HO by a message received from the MSC con-
cerning the resetting of the circuits or the BCSU/BCXU restart (if the TCHs related to
the HO are in that BCSU/BCXU)
