Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for

UTRAN P3: Feature Parameters and Best


Practices
Network Services Document: ND-00150

Rev. 3.0 09/09/2007

Overview
Volume II of the Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN defines AT&Ts accepted practices for optimization of
the Radio Access portion of the UMTS network for Ericsson WRAN P5MD patch level P5.0.14 (Phase II
FOA exited August 23rd, 2007). The algorithms by which subscriber devices interact with the network are
described in detail. Recommendations are provided that produce the best performance in the network for
each type of interaction.
This Field Guide is composed of 11 sections which include descriptions of:
New features released in the most recent RNS software version.
WCDMA design concepts and measurement fundamentals.
A chronological step by step description of how the subscriber device and network interact. Idle Mode, Call
Establishment and Connected Mode are introduced and the algorithms associated with each are described and
the involved parameters are explained.
OSS access procedures and methods.

The document concludes with an index and tables wherein all configurable parameters and supporting
details are listed along with a list of well deserved credits.

IMPORTANT: This document is the result of an ongoing collaborative effort between


AT&T Market, Regional, National and Ericsson staff and management. It will continue to
be updated with the latest findings in the areas of optimization and vendor improvement
through the use of Field Studies and successive vendor software and hardware updates.

1. About This Document


This section includes information about this document.

1.1

Purpose

The primary intention of this document is to serve as a common point of understanding and reference.
This volume includes recommendations for all configurable RNC and Node B parameters. The
recommendations made within this document are the result of collaborative efforts between all groups
involved (see 1.3).

1.2

Scope

This document is mainly based upon Ericssons UTRAN implementation, focusing on the interaction
between the User Equipment and UTRAN. For completeness, some facets of the Core Network are
included, e.g. Paging, Routing and Location Area Update procedures, i.e. non-access stratum.

1.3

Audience

The audience for this document includes AT&T Market, Region and National Engineers and Technicians
responsible for Ericsson UTRAN Optimization and Maintenance.

1.4

Related Documentation

See Reference Documents Chapter.

1.5

Acronyms and Terms

All acronyms and terms are fully spelled out within the document.

1.6

Trademarks

The trademarks used in this document are the property of their respective owners.

1.7

Conventions

The following conventions are used throughout this document:


The term call refers to any type of user plane connection between UE and the Core Network. It is not specific to
voice or data - UE originated or terminated. It specifically does not include any type of signaling used to support
the communication of user information.

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3


The term function refers to Ericssons implementation of a certain portion of the 3GPP specification. A function is
limited to satisfying a specific action taken by either the network or UE. For example, the process of originating a
call is referred to as a function. Once the call has been originated, handing the call over is considered a function
and ending the call is a function. Within this document, parameters are explained relative to the functions they
support.
Each Operator Configurable Parameter expressed in bolditalic. Brackets enclose the Configurable Parameters
Level (RNC, Cell, etc.), AT&T Default Value, Units and Class (Policy, Rule, Fixed, Variable).
Each Operator Configurable Paramter exists within a specifi Managed Opject Class (MOC). The Managed Object
Class will be specified only for parameters that exist within multiple Managed Object Classes. For example,
qOffset1sn is a parameter that can be set differently for Intra-Frequency (UtranRelation) and Inter-RAT
(GsmRelation) neighbors. The parameter instances are therefore denoted as qOffset1sn(UtranRelation) [Nabr,
0, dB, Fixed] and qOffset1sn(GsmRelation) [Nabr, 7, dB, Fixed].
All references to Radio Access Bearers (RABs) are denoted as UL/DL where UL is the Uplink RLC Data rate in
kilobits per second and DL is the Downlink Data rate in kilobits per second.
The term R99 is used to denote all CELL_DCH Radio Access Bearers referring to the release of the specification
that only supported Dedicated Channels (DCH). The term DCH/HS is used to denote HSDPA capability where the
Uplink uses an R99 Radio Access Bearer. The terms EUL/HS or HSPA is used to denote the HSUPA / HSDPA
capability.
Some configurable parameters include an (sho) or an (hho) suffix. This suffix is used to specify a subset of
cells to which the parameter recommendation applies. The sho vs. hho distinction is as follows:
(hho). The parameter recommendation is specific to UEs that might have no alternative to performing a Hard
Inter-RAT or Inter-Frequency Handover in order to maintain the call.
(sho). The parameter recommendation is specific to cells that have Intra-Frequency overlap with other 3G
cells. Inter-RAT or Inter-Frequency Hard Handover is not normally needed to maintain the call.
For example, usedFreqThresh2dRscp(hho) [Cell, -106 4, dBm, Fixed] is used to indicate the recommended
value of -106 dBm 4dB is specific to cells that meet the hho distinction.
The terms Core and Border
Border Cell: Any 3G cell where the antenna orientation points out of a launch cluster or polygon into the 2G
network. With respect to IRAT terminology, these sectors are considered (hho) sectors.
Core Cell: 3G cells within the UMTS polygon that do not qualify as Border Cells. These cells can be designated
as (sho) or (hho) if there are Inter-Frequency borders within the Core. Ideally, there should not be any Inter-RAT
borders within the Core.

2. New Features in P3 (WRAN P5MD Phase II)


This section provides a summary of updates AT&T has elected to implement within this version of RNS
software.

2.1

Idle Mode

2.1.1 URA_PCH
The URA_PCH State is now available to all UEs. The URA_PCH State allows the RNS to maintain the
location of the UE within the RNC thereby reducing the Routing Area Update load on the SGSN.

2.1.2 Introduciton of CELL_FACH State for HS capable UEs


The CELL_FACH State is now available to HS capable UEs. Before P5MD, CELL_FACH was only
available to R99 only UEs.

2.2

Call Establishment

2.2.1 2xPS Radio Access Bearers


UEs that are able to support multiple Interactive / Background R99 Data RABs are now supported.
Speech + 2 Data RABs is also supported. For example, you can now use Video Share on your Samsung
A707 while it is teathered to your laptop.

2.2.2 Enhanced Uplink (EUL) or HSUPA


Ericsson P5MD introduces Enhanced Uplink (EUL) or HSUPA as specificed in Release 6 of the 3GPP
specification. Enhanced Uplink (EUL) is much like HSDPA in that it allows for greater throughput and
capacity through Link Adaptation. Unlike HSDPA however, EUL does use Macro Diversity and Inner
Loop Power Contorl in the Uplink.

2.3

Mobility and Connection Management

2.3.1 Introduction of additional R99 RABs


In P5MD, R99 Radio Access Bearers include 64, 128 and 384 on both the Uplink and Downlink. All
Uplink/Downlink combinations are now supporteded.

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3

2.3.2 Event 6a has been replaced with Event 6d


If the UE transmitted power is at maximum for a time equal to timeToTrigger6d, then event 6d occurs
and the UE is commanded to do Compressed Mode measurements.

2.3.3 Code Division Multiplexing for HSDPA


Cells can now support up to 15 High Speed Physical Downlink Shared CHannels (HS-PDSCH).

2.3.4 hoTypeDrncBand1-17 has been replaced with defaultHoType


In P5MD, the Serving RNC determines if UEs will measure Inter-RAT or Inter-Frequency for UEs served
by a Drift RNC by using the defaultHoType [Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED, String, Fixed] parameter which
is uarfcnDl [Cell, N/A, Integer, Variable] specific instead of band specific.

2.3.5 Calculation of maxDlPowerCapability


In P5ED, the configurable parameter maximumTransmissionPower [Cell, 400, 0.1dBm, Var.] which sets
the maximum power (downlink capacity) available in the cell at the Reference Point (antenna connector)
was used for Admission Control.
In P5MD, the minimum value of either maximumTransmissionPower [Cell, 400, 0.1dBm, Var.] or
maxDlPowerCapability (a value calculated by the Node B at the Reference Point and sent to the RNC) is
used for Admission Control.

2.3.6 Throughput triggered Dedicated to Dedicated Up and Down-Switch (Uplink and


Downlink)
Throughput based Down-Switch for all R99 RABs on the Uplink and Downlink is now supported.

2.4

OSS Related Functionality

2.4.1 Neighbor List Prioritization


It is now possible to re-order neighbor lists without having to remove and re-enter them. This is
accomplished through a new neighbor indexing capability.

4.1.2 Channel Numbering Scheme (UARFCN)


The UTRA Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number allows easy reference to the spectrum allocated
to UMTS. Distinct UARFCNs are used for uplink and downlink frequencies as opposed to a single
UARFCN for a pair of UL/DL frequencies. The UARFCN for the downlink is controlled through uarfcnDl
[Cell, N/A, Integer, Variable] and the uplink UARFCN is controlled through uarfcnUl [Cell, N/A, Integer,
Variable]. A UARFCN occupies 5 MHz of spectrum.
The specification allows for two methods to be used to associate center carrier frequency to UARFCN.
General UARFCN method. Each UARFCN is defined with a specific center frequency. Beginning at 0 Hz, the
UARFCN is incremented by 1 with each increment in frequency of 200 kHz. The UARFCN corresponding to the
center frequency is calculated by finding the product of 5 and the center frequency (in MHz); i.e. UARFCN = 5 *
Frequency (MHz). When using the general method, this formula applies regardless of direction (uplink /
downlink) and band.
Additional Channels UARFCN method. The Additional Channels are specified according to the table below.
These channels are shifted by 100 KHz relative to the general URFCN definition. For Band II, the UARFCN is

calculated by finding the product of 5 and the center carrier frequency (in MHz) minus 1850.1 MHz, i.e UARFCN =
5 * (Frequency in MHz 1850.1 MHz). For Band V, the UARFCN is calculated by finding the product of 5 and the
center carrier frequency (in MHz) minus 670.1 MHz, i.e UARFCN = 5 * (Frequency in MHz 670.1 MHz).

Either the General or Additional Channels method can be used to designate UARFCNs based upon
where you choose to locate UMTS within your licensed spectrum.

Link Budget

In this simple presentation of the link budget, only the maximum transmit power and receive sensitivity of
the Node B and UE at their respective antenna connectors is considered. The difference between the
maximum transmit power of one node and the maximum receive sensitivity at the other node is
considered to be the maximum allowable path loss. The resulting uplink and downlink path losses are
compared resulting in a difference in dB between the uplink and downlink maximum path losses.

4.3

Basic Design Requirements

This section describes fundamental design guidelines that are required for basic system operation. It is
strongly suggested that these basic requirements be satisfied before further optimization of the radio
network is pursued.
For example, if this were an FDMA/TDMA network such as GSM or IS-136, frequency planning would be
included in this section. However, since frequency reuse is not a primary consideration in WCDMA, it is
not included.

4.3.1 Pilot Pollution


Since the basis of WCDMA is to allow for multiple access based upon code division instead of frequency
division, care must be taken to manage over-propagation of cells in the network. As mentioned later in
the Neighbor List Determination section, all cells that provide coverage in a given geographic area must
be neighbors; else they are seen as noise. An over-propagating cell would therefore need to have
neighbor relationships with all cells with which it overlaps. This of course would mean the overpropagating cell would be heavily utilized and would require a very large capacity.
Over-propagating cells also cause Call Establishment problems. Call Establishment has its own section
within this guide, but in short; a UE establishes calls on a single cell based upon its having the best
Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) signal level and/or quality. If a cell has propagated into an area where
there are no neighbors assigned from it to other closer cells in terms of distance to the mobile, the call will
drop. Even if there are neighbors assigned, the noise level will be increased for a short time until the
surrounding cells have been added to the call through the process of Soft Handover.
Fundamentally, Pilot Pollution is Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) power where it is not desired due the
over-propagation of cells. The current method used to reduce Pilot Pollution requires a drive test of the
area with a CPICH scanner. CPICH propagation is then analyzed graphically (maps) and statistically.
The criteria for Pilot Pollution is 4 or more Common Pilot Channels serving within 5 dB of each other in
the same geographic area. In most cases, power changes, down-tilts, azimuth changes or antenna
changes are required to reduce over-propagation.

4.3.2 Neighbor List Determination


Neighbor relationships fall into 3 categories where UMTS and the interaction between UMTS and GSM
are concerned.
Intra-UARFCN Neighbors. These neighbor relationships are assigned wherever there is coverage overlap
between cells having the same UARFCN. These neighbor relationships allow for Soft Handover. It is important to
assign neighbor relationships between overlapping cells in order to allow multiple cells covering the same
geographic area to collectively serve a given UE.

A cell covering an area, but not in the other servers neighbor lists is seen as noise by the UE which
causes the UE compensate by requiring more power.
Inter-UARFCN Neighbors. These neighbor relationships allow for Hard Handover between cells with different

2007 AT&T

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3


UARFCNs. The neighboring UARFCNs can be in either the same band or in a different band. Neighbor
relationships should be assigned between all overlapping UARFCNs.
Inter-RAT Neighbors. Inter-RAT neighbor relationships allow for Hard Handover and Cell Reselection between
UMTS and GSM. The UMTS coverage area in all AT&T markets is a subset of the GSM coverage. Inter-RAT
neighbors should only be defined from UMTS to GSM cells that support EGPRS (EDGE). This is done in order to
allow for the greatest throughput when the UE performs an Inter-RAT Cell Change from the 3G to the 2G network.
Idle Mode Cell Reselection neighbors should be defined xx Inter-RAT neighbors should also be assigned to allow
UEs to handover from UMTS to GSM where there are no suitable UMTS carriers (coverage holes) within the
UMTS polygon.

Important! Neighbor relationships for speech must not be defined from GSM to UMTS in order to avoid
E911 calls handing back to UMTS before they are ended.

Ericsson further defines neighbor types based upon how they exist between different RNCs and
technologies (GSM vs. UMTS).
UTRAN Relations. All intra-RNC neighbor definitions including Intra and Inter-UARFCN.
External UTRAN Relations. All inter-RNC neighbor definitions including Intra and Inter-UARFCN.
GSM Relations. All Inter-RAT neighbor definitions.

4.3.3 Scrambling Code Usage


Each cell in the network is assigned a Primary Scrambling Code. The primaryScramblingCode [Cell, 0
to 511, Integer, Variable] parameter is an integer value 0-511 inclusive. For the interest of this section, it
is important to avoid co-UARFCN co-Scrambling Code use in the same geographic area. However, if
there are more than 512 cells in use, Scrambling Codes must be reused very carefully. It is suggested
that reuses of Scrambling Code among the same UARFCN only exist where there is ample isolation.
Optionally, Scrambling Codes can also be divided into 64 groups of 8 codes each. Scrambling Code
planning would then be much like frequency planning with a reuse of 64. The advantage to this type of
planning could be a less complex code search procedure for the UE.

4.4

Measurement Fundamentals

Before we get into Idle Mode, Call Establishment and Mobility Management, it is important to understand
the fundamental measurements used by the UE and RNS to make radio related decisions. These
measurements are commonly used when referencing signal level (RSCP) and signal quality (Ec/No). The
signal level (RSCP) and signal quality (Ec/No) of the Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) define the
coverage area of the cell. SIR and BLER are also described as they are used to control uplink and
downlink power.

4.4.1 PCPICH
The Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) is one of the continuously transmitted downlink Physical
Channels. It is unique in that it is the reference used by the UE to make radio related decisions for Cell
Selection, Cell Reselection , Soft (intra-frequency) Handover and Hard (inter-frequency) Handover as well

AT&T CONFIDENTIAL & PROPRIETARY

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3

as Inter-RAT Handover. All signal level and quality measurements are made based upon or relative to
the Primary Common Pilot Channel.
The power of Primary Common Pilot Channel is set to an absolute value per cell at the Reference Point
(antenna connector) through the primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] parameter. All other
downlink Physical Channels on the cell are set relative (dB) to the Primary Common Pilot Channel. Since
proper downlink power settings are necessary to allow the UE to enter Idle Mode, they are covered in
detail in the Idle Mode section.

4.4.2 PCPICH RSCP


The Primary Common Pilot Channel Received Signal Code Power, commonly called RSCP, is simply
the received power (dBm) of the Common Pilot Channel.
In order to really understand Received Signal Code Power (RSCP), it is important to understand the basic
concept of spreading and de-spreading. Spreading is the process of taking a signal, in this case the
Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) signal, and transforming it into a signal that occupies a much
larger bandwidth. This is done in two steps. First, the original signal is binary multiplied by a Spreading
Code. The Spreading Code, also known as the Channelization Code or Orthogonal Variable Spreading
Factor (OVSF) Code is unique within the cell and when binary multiplied by Primary Common Pilot
Channel (CPICH) signal allows it to be isolated from the other spread signals within the cell.
The Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) has a bit rate of 30kb/s. 2 bits = 1 symbol in the downlink.
The bits in the Spreading Code are referred to as chips. The number of chips per data symbol is called
the Spreading Factor. 3,840,000 chips / 15,000 symbols = 256. The Primary Common Pilot Channel
(CPICH) uses a Spreading Factor of 256. Seen yet another way, each Primary Common Pilot Channel
(CPICH) symbol is spread into 256 chips causing the spread signal to occupy 256 times the bandwidth of
the original signal.

Second, since the Spreading Codes are only unique within a cell, the signal must be further scrambled
to make it unique within the geographic coverage area. This is done by exclusively ORing the already
spread signal with a primaryScramblingCode [Cell, 0 to 511, Integer, Variable]. There are a total of 512
Primary Scrambling Codes available, so co-UARFCN co-Primary Scrambling Code use might be
necessary in geographic areas with greater than 512 cells. See the Scrambling Code Selection section
for cautions.
At the other end, receiving the symbols is simply a matter of first de-scrambling, then de-spreading the
signal using the same scrambling and spreading codes used to initially spread the symbols.

4.4.3 CPICH Ec/No (Ec/Io)


The Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) received Energy per Chip (Ec) to Noise (No) ratio,
commonly referred to as Eee-Cee-N-Not, is used to measure the received quality of the Primary Common
Pilot Channel (CPICH). It is the ratio of the received Energy per Chip to the Noise power spectral density
in the band. In this case, the Chip Energy (Ec) is the power of the spread Primary Common Pilot Channel
(CPICH) at the receiver. Ec is equivalent to Received Signal Code Power (RSCP) in that both measure
the power of the Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH); the only difference being Ec is the power of

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3

the spread signal whereas RSCP is the power measured after de-spreading. No (N-not) is the received
wide band power, including thermal noise and noise generated in the receiver within the receivers
bandwidth.
The term Ec/Io is also used to denote Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) quality with the only
difference being the denominator where Io includes interference only. The use of the term Ec/Io is where
receivers are concerned is not technically accurate due mainly to the fact that receivers do not discern
Noise from Interference and as such, cannot accurately measure Ec/Io. However, Io is commonly used in
RF Design (propagation) tools when noise is not considered.

4.4.4 Eb/No
Eb/No, commonly referred to as Eee-Bee-N-Not or ebno, is the received energy per Bit (symbol) of the
signal over the received wide band power, including thermal noise and noise generated in the receiver,
within the receivers bandwidth. The fundamental difference between Eb/No and Ec/No is Spreading
Factor. Ec is of course the energy of the spread signal. By factoring in the Spreading Factor, we get the
energy of a bit or symbol over the received wide band power, including thermal noise and noise
generated in the receiver, within the receivers bandwidth. Eb/No therefore equals Ec/No * Spreading
Factor.
Eb/No is commonly used when referencing Physical Channels that carry user data or signaling as
opposed to Physical Channels such as the Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) which only carries repetitive
data.

4.4.5 SIR
SIR is the Signal to Interference Ratio. It is equivalent to (RSCP / ISCP) * Spreading Factor. RSCP is
defined above; ISCP is the Interference Signal Code Power which is essentially the interference from
other cells (DL) or UEs (UL) excluding noise. SIR is a quality metric used to maintain appropriate power
levels in the uplink and downlink. The UTRAN uses a very fast power control technique called closedloop power control where power is adjusted 1500 times per second in order to maintain the Signal to
Interference Ratio at a configured target value. SIR is further explained in the Mobility Management
section.

4.4.6 RSSI
The Received Signal Strength Indication is a signal level measurement of the downlink which includes
thermal noise and noise generated in the receiver within the receivers bandwidth. Received Signal
Strength Indication (RSSI) is equivalent to the No measurement used in Ec/No above.

4.4.7 RTWP
Received Total Wideband Power measured by the Node B is the received wide band power, including
thermal noise and noise generated in the receiver within the receivers bandwidth.

4.4.8 BLER
BLER is the Block Error Rate at the Transport Channel Layer. CPICH RSCP, CPICH Ec/No, Eb/No and
SIR are all measurements of the Physical Layer. The Transport Channel layer resides above the
Physical Layer. At the Transport Layer, data from the Physical Layer is put into CRC encoded Blocks. If
a Block fails a CRC check, it is considered in error. BLER indicates the percentage of these Blocks in
error.

5. Parameters Described Within Context


5.1

Idle Mode

Idle Mode is a state every UE enters when it is powered on. It is also the state in which each powered on
UE spends most of its time. In this state, the UE must be ready and able to Originate and Terminate
calls. This section includes cell selection, but does not include Cell Reselection as Cell Reselection is a
function of mobility and as such is covered in the Mobility Management section.

5.1.1 Cell Search Procedure


After either power up or entry into network coverage, the UE must begin to read information on the
BCCH. The Broadcast Control CHannel (BCCH) is used to broadcast System Information to all UEs
within its coverage area. This is accomplished in 3 steps. However, before the 3 steps are described, it
is important to understand the Slot and Frame structure of the downlink. A Slot is made up of 2560 Chips
(meaning its a spread signal). 15 Slots make up one 10 ms Frame. 73 Frames make up one
Superframe.
1. Slot Synchronization with the downlink is acquired by correlating the Primary Synchronization Code,
common to every cell and known by all UEs, with the Primary Synchronization Channel (P-SCH)
transmitted on the downlink. It is important to know that neither the Primary nor the Secondary
Synchronization Channel are ever Scrambled using the Primary Scrambling Code. Each cell serving
in the UEs geographic area transmits a Primary Synchronization Channel (P-SCH). The cell that the
UE is able to obtain the strongest correlation with is chosen as the serving cell. The Primary
Synchronization Channel (P-SCH) power level is controlled by the primarySchPower [Cell, -18,
0.1dB, Fixed] parameter which is set relative to the power of the Primary Common Pilot Channel
(CPICH).

2. Even though the UE has acquired Slot Synchronization, it still needs to know the Slot number within a
Frame (Frames have 15 Slots) so it can know where the Frame begins. It does this by correlating
one of the 16 Secondary Synchronization Codes with the Secondary Synchronization Channel (SSCH). It is important to know that neither the Primary nor the Secondary Synchronization Channel
are ever Scrambled using the Primary Scrambling Code. The 16 Secondary Synchronization Codes
are used to form 64 unique Secondary Synchronization Channel sequences. Once the UE has
decoded 15 successive Secondary Synchronization Codes, it not only knows where the Frame
begins, but the Code Group (used in step 3) as well. The UE is now Frame Synchronized. The
Secondary Synchronization Channel (S-SCH) power is controlled by the secondarySchPower [Cell,
-35, 0.1dB, Fixed] parameter which is set relative to the power of the Primary Common Pilot Channel
(CPICH).
3. Now that the UE is Slot and Frame Synchronized, it must still determine the cells Primary Scrambling
Code before it can begin to read the Broadcast Control CHannel (BCCH). In step 2, the UE discovers
the cells Code Group. Each Code Group identifies 8 possible Primary Scrambling Codes. The
correct Primary Scrambling Code is determined by correlating each of the 8 possibilities with the
Common Pilot Channel (CPICH). Once the correct Primary Scrambling Code has been found, the
UE can detect the Primary Common Control Physical Channel (P-CCPCH) which carries the
Broadcast CHannel (BCH) Transport Channel. The Broadcast CHannel (BCH) transmission power is
controlled throughput bchPower [Cell, -31, 0.1dB, Fixed] which is set relative to the power of the
Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH). The Broadcast CHannel (BCH) carries the Broadcast
Control CHannel (BCCH) Logical Channel. The cells Primary Scrambling Code is configured using
the primaryScramblingCode [Cell, 0 to 511, Integer, Variable] parameter.
The Primary Common Control Physical Channel (P-CPPCH) carries the System Frame Number (SFN)
which is used as the timing reference for all Physical Channels. The System Frame Number (SFN)
ranges from 0 to 4095 (inclusive). For more information about Slot and Frame synchronization, see [3e].

5.1.2 PLMN Selection


Now the UE is able to read the Broadcast Control CHannel (BCCH). If the UE finds its subscribed Public
Land Mobile Network (PLMN) it then continues to read System Information from the BCCH.

5.1.2.1

Information on the Broadcast Control CHannel (BCCH)

The Broadcast Control Channel (BCCH) broadcasts information consisting of a Master Information Block
(MIB), up to 18 System Information Blocks (SIB) types numbered 1-18, and up to 2 Scheduling Blocks
(SB). Ericsson has implemented a Master Information Block (MIB) and System Information Blocks (SIB)
types 1, 3, 5, 7, 11 and 12.
The following breakdown of the Master Information Block (MIB) and System Information Blocks (SIBs)
provides an indication of where the UE gets the information necessary in order to maintain Idle Mode,
Establish Calls, and Manage Mobility. The Layer 3 Message column was derived from TEMS 6.0 log
files. The Purpose column provides a brief description of where the parameter applies.
Master Information Block (MIB). The Master Information Block (MIB) is sent at a fixed rate of every 8 Frames
(80ms). It contains information that identifies the network as well as the start position and interval of each of the
System Information Blocks (SIBs). The Master Information Block (MIB) also contains a Value Tag associated with
each System Information Block supported. If the Value Tag for any supported System Information Block changes,

Purpose
There are no configurable parameters reported in this
SIB

The UE reads System Information only when one of the following events occurs:
The UE is powered up.
Immediately after Cell Reselection (except SIB 1 where the parameter sib1PLMNScopeValueTag [Cell, 0 to 31,
Integer, Variable] is used).
The UE receives a Paging Type 1 message indicating System Information has changed. Then the MIB is read
which indicates the SIBs that have been updated.
The timer expires for SIBs with an expiration timer (SIB 7 only).

Otherwise, in order to conserve battery life, the UE does not read the System Information. This is
something to consider when observing Layer 3 messages using a diagnostic UE.

5.1.2.2

Camping on a Suitable Cell

Now that the UE has read the Broadcast Control CHannel (BCCH), it knows the values of the parameters
that help the UE determine if the cell is suitable. The Cell must not be Reserved and it must be suitable
in terms of signal level (Srxlev) and quality (Squal).
cellReserved [Cell, NOT_RESERVED, String, Variable] is a cell based parameter sent in System
Information Block 3 (SIB3). It has two possible settings; RESERVED and NOT_RESERVED. When set
to RESERVED, only UEs with SIMs having an ACC of 11 or 15 (set in the SIMs HLR profile) will be
allowed to camp on the cell assuming the cell is on their home PLMN. See TS 25.306 for details. All
other UEs (with SIMs having other than ACC 11 or 15) will avoid camping on the cell. The UEs Cell
Reselection process will also avoid reserved cells.
accessClassNbarred [Cell, 0, Integer, Fixed] is another cell based parameter sent in System Information
Block 3 (SIB3). It makes it possible to disallow UEs with SIM that have specific Access Classes
provisioned for them in the HLR from accessing the network. This parameter differs from the
cellReserved [Cell, NOT_RESERVED, String, Variable] parameter in that accessClassNbarred [Cell, 0,
Integer, Fixed] still allows the UE to camp on the network. This could cause a worst case senerio wherein
the UE camps on the 3G network, but is not allowed to register.
The signal level (Srxlev) and quality (Squal) parameters are commonly referred to as the S parameters.
Srxlev = Qrxlevmeas qRxLevMin [Cell, -115, dBm, Fixed] Pcompensation
Where:
Srxlev is the signal level criteria used to determine a cells suitability.
Qrxlevmeas is the Primary Common Pilot Channel Received Signal Code Power (PCPICH RSCP) as measured by
the UE.
qRxLevMin [Cell, -115, dBm, Fixed] is sent in System Information Block 3 (SIB 3) for the serving cell which

Use pursuant to Company instructions

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3


indicates the minimum acceptable Primary Common Pilot Channel Received Signal Code Power (PCPICH RSCP).
The quantity called Pcompensation is the maximum value of maxTxPowerUl [Cell, 24, dBm, Fixed] P or 0 where
maxTxPowerUl [Cell, 24, dBm, Fixed] is sent in System Information Block 3 (SIB 3) which indicates the maximum
transmission power allowed for a UE and P is the output power of the UE according to its Power Class.

Example part 1 of 3. A Power Class 3 UE is served at a path loss 10 dB less than the maximum path loss
as indicated in the Link Budget table, qRxLevMin [Cell, -115, dBm, Fixed] is set conservatively at -115
dBm, and maxTxPowerUl [Cell, 24, dBm, Fixed] is set at 24 dBm. Pcompensation is the maximum value
of either 24 dBm 24 dBm or 0. So Srxlev = -105 dBm minus -115 dBm minus 0. Srxlev = 10.
Squal = Qqualmeas qQualMin [Cell, -19, dB, Fixed]
Where:
Qqualmeas is the Primary Common Pilot Channel Chip Energy over Noise Spectral Density (PCPICH Ec/No) as
measured by the UE.
qQualMin [Cell, -19, dB, Fixed] is sent in System Information Block 3 (SIB 3) for the serving cell indicates the
minimum acceptable Primary Common Pilot Channel Chip Energy over Noise Spectral Density (PCPICH Ec/No)
for the cell.

Example part 2 of 3. The UE is served at an Ec/No of -14 dB and qQualMin [Cell, -19, dB, Fixed] is set
at -19 dB. -14 dB minus -19 dB. Squal = 5 dB.

The cell is considered suitable if its cell selection criterion (S criterion) is met. In order for the S criterion
to be met, Srxlev and Squal must have positive values.
Example part 3 of 3. The UE calculates both S criteria with positive resulting values. The cell is
considered acceptable where the S criterion is concerned. It is now allowed to transmit on the uplink.

5.1.3 IMSI and GPRS Attach


Assuming now that the UE has found its home PLMN and is Camping on a suitable cell, it must
International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) Attach and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) Attach
to the Circuit Switched (CS) and Packet Switched (PS) Core Networks (CN) respectively. This process is
also known as Registration.

5.1.3.1

Attach Procedure

If att [LA, 1=TRUE, Integer, Fixed] sent in System Information Block 1 (SIB 1) is set to 1, the UE must
establish a Signaling Connection to notify the Circuit Switched Core Network (CS-CN) and Packet
Switched Core Network (PS-CN) that it is powered on and within network coverage. Signaling
Connections are always initiated by the UE. First, the UE must access the Node B in order to send a
request to the RNC to establish a Radio Resource Control (RRC) Connection. This is done through the
Physical Random Access Channel (PRACH) on the uplink and the Acquisition Indicator Channel (AICH)
on the downlink. The UE sends successive attempts on the uplink, each at a greater power level until the
Node B responds on the Acquisition Indicator CHannel (AICH) on the downlink. The Acquisition Indicator
CHannel (AICH) power is set relative to the Primary Common Pilot CHannel (PCPICH) through

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3

aichPower [Cell, -6, dB, Fixed]. The process of sending successive attempts, each at an increased
power level, is known as Preamble Ramping. The initial power on the PRACH is determined by the UE
using the following formula:
P_PRACH = L_PCPICH + RTWP + ConstantValueCprach [Cell, -27, dB, Fixed]
P_PRACH is the power used for the initial PRACH attempt.
L_PCPICH is the path loss estimated by the UE (difference between primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm,
Fixed] as indicated in SIB 5 and PCPICH RSCP as measured by the UE).
RTWP is the Received Total Wideband Power measured by the Node B as indicated in SIB 7.
ConstantValueCprach [Cell, -27, dB, Fixed] determines the level below the Received Total Wideband Power at
which Preamble Ramping begins.

For example, a UE is served at a path loss 10 dB less than the maximum path loss as indicated in the
Link Budget table, so L_PCPICH = 132 dB. Lets also say the RTWP = -105 dBm and
ConstantValueCprach [Cell, -27, dB, Fixed] = -27 dB. The sum of these values, or P_PRACH, is 0 dBm.
The UE will begin the attempt at 0 dBm.

Subsequent transmission attempts within a Ramping Cycle are made at an increased power level relative
to the former attempt. The increase in power level between steps is controlled by the parameter
powerOffsetP0 [Cell, 2, dB, Fixed] which the UE reads from System Information Block (SIB) 5.
The UE ceases its access attempt as soon as it receives an Acknowledgement Indicator (AI) on the
downlink Acquisition Indication CHannel (AICH). However, the UE is not allowed to ramp its power
indefinitely. The preambleRetransMax [Cell, 15, Preambles, Fixed] parameter in SIB 5 controls how
many successive Preambles the UE can transmit within one Ramping Cycle and the maxPreambleCycle
[Cell, 3, Cycles, Fixed] parameter controls how many Ramping Cycles can be attempted before the UE
aborts the access attempt.

Resource Control (RRC) Connection. The power at which PRACH Message Part is sent is equal to the
sum of the power of the successful transmission attempt and powerOffsetPpm [Cell, 0, dB, Fixed].
Once the UE and Radio Network Controller (RNC) have established a Radio Resource Control (RRC)
Connection, the RNC establishes an Iu Control Plane connection over the Iu interface to the appropriate
Core Network (CN) element(s), i.e. the SGSN, MSC or both. The resulting Transparent Message
Transfer connection between the UE and Core Network (CN) element(s) allows the exchange of NonAccess Stratum (NAS) messages such as Registrations, Location or Routing Area Updates, and Service
Requests for User Plane connections. The figure below details all of the steps necessary to complete a
Radio Resource Control (RRC) Connection. Following the figure are detailed explanations for each step.

Channel.
2. Initiate UE Context. The Radio Resource Control (RRC) Connection attempt is assigned a UTRAN
Radio Network Temporary Identity (U-RNTI) which is unique within the network.
3. Activated Algorithms. At this point, the Power Control algorithm sets the initial downlink and uplink
Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH) and Dedicated Physical Control CHannel (DPCCH)
transmission power. These channels are time multiplexed on the downlink and code (I/Q) multiplexed
on the uplink. Together they are typically referred to as a Dedicated Physical CHannel (DPCH). The
following initial power level parameters are used whenever a Radio Link is set up.
The initial downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH) power is determined using the following
formula:
P_DL_DPDCH = primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] + (dlInitSirTarget [RNC, 41,
0.1dB, Fixed] - Ec/No_PCPICH) + cBackOff [RNC, 0, 0.25dB, Fixed] + 10 log(2/SF_DL_DPDCH)
Where:
P_DL_DPDCH is the initial downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH) power.
primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] sets the power of the Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH)
sent in SIB 5.
dlInitSirTarget [RNC, 41, 0.1dB, Fixed] sets the required initial Signal to Interference Ratio (SIR) Target.
Ec/No_PCPICH is the ratio of Chip Energy to the Noise Power Spectral Density of the Primary Common Pilot
CHannel (P-CPICH) as measured by the UE. If this measurement is not available, ecNoPcpichDefault [RNC, 16, dB, Fixed] is used.
cBackOff [RNC, 0, 0.25dB, Fixed] is used to offset the value of P_DL_DPDCH.
SF_DL_DPDCH is the Spreading Factor of the downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH).

The initial downlink Dedicated Physical Control CHannel (DPCCH) power is set relative to the initial
downlink Dedicated Physical Data Channel (DPDCH) power by means of a series of offsets:
P_DL_DPCCH_TFCI = (P_DL_DPDCH + pO1 [RNC, 0, 0.25dB, Fixed] )
P_DL_DPCCH_TPC = (P_DL_DPDCH + pO2 [RNC, 12, 0.25dB, Fixed] )
P_DL_DPCCH_PILOT = (P_DL_DPDCH + pO3 [RNC, 12, 0.25dB, Fixed] )

Transport Format Combination Indicator (DPCCH TFCI) field.
P_DL_DPCCH_TPC is the initial power of the Dedicated Physical Control CHannel Transmit Power Control
(DPCCH TPC) field.
pO2 [RNC, 12, 0.25dB, Fixed] sets the offset between the Data field and the Dedicated Physical Control CHannel
Transmit Power Control (DPCCH TPC) field.
P_DL_DPCCH_PILOT is the initial power of the Dedicated Physical Control CHannel Pilot field.
pO3 [RNC, 12, 0.25dB, Fixed] sets the offset between the Data field and the Dedicated Physical Control CHannel
Pilot field.

The initial uplink Dedicated Physical Control CHannel (DPCCH) power is determined using the following
formula:
Power_UL_DPCCH_INIT = DPCCH_POWER_OFFSET - RSCP_PCPICH
Where:
Power_UL_DPCCH_INIT is the initial uplink Dedicated Physical Control CHannel (DPCCH) power.
DPCCH_POWER_OFFSET is calculated in the Radio Network Controller (RNC) and sent to the UE according to
the following formula:

DPCCH_POWER_OFFSET = primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] + RTWP + ulInitSirTarget - 10 log


(SF_DPCCH) + cPO [RNC, 0, 0.1dB, Fixed]

Where:
DPCCH_POWER_OFFSET is an offset applied to Power_UL_DPCCH_INIT.

primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] sets the power of the Primary Common Pilot CHannel (PCPICH). If the Radio Network Controller (RNC) does now know the Primary Common Pilot CHannel (P-CPICH)
power, as is the case when the UE is served by a Drift Radio Network Controller (DRNC), pcpichPowerDefault
[RNC, 33, dBm, Fixed] is used instead.
RTWP is the Received Total Wideband Power level on the uplink measured by the Node B.
ulInitSirTarget is one of the following configurable parameters based upon the Spreading Factor of the Radio
Bearer.

ulInitSirTargetSrb [RNC, 57, 0.1dB, Fixed] for stand-alone Signaling Radio Bearers (SRB).

ulInitSirTargetLow [RNC, 49, 0.1dB, Fixed] for Radio Access Bearers (RABs) having minimum Dedicated
Physical Data CHannel Spreading Factors (DPDCH SF) equal to or higher than 32.

ulInitSirTargetHigh [RNC, 82, 0.1dB, Fixed] for RABs having minimum Dedicated Physical Data CHannel
Spreading Factors (DPDCH SF) equal to 16 or 8.

ulInitSirTargetExtraHigh [RNC, 92, 0.1dB, Fixed] for Radio Access Bearers (RABs) having minimum
Dedicated Physical Data CHannel Spreading Factors (DPDCH SF) equal to or lower than 4.

SF_DPCCH is the Spreading Factor (SF) for the Dedicated Physical Control CHannel.
cPO [RNC, 0, 0.1dB, Fixed] is used to offset the initial uplink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH)
power.
RSCP_PCPICH is the Received Signal Code Power (RSCP) of the Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH).

The initial uplink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH) power is determined according to the
relative power offset between the Dedicated Physical Control CHannel (DPCCH) and Dedicated Physical
Data Channel (DPDCH) as described in 3GPP TS 25.214. The UTRAN determines and signals the gain
factor to the UE for the reference Transport Format Combination (TFC) only. The UE then computes the
gain factors for other Transport Format Combinations (TFCs) based on the value for the reference
Transport Format Combination (TFC).
In addition to uplink and downlink power control, the Iub and Uu Timing Scheduling algorithms calculate
channel timing parameters. The Admission Control algorithm checks if the new radio link can be allowed
in the cell. The Code Control algorithms allocate the uplink scrambling code, downlink scrambling code,
and downlink channelization code.
4. Radio Link Setup Request. The RNC orders the Node B to reserve the necessary resources for a
new Node B communication context.
5. Resource Allocation. The Node B reserves the necessary resources for a new communication
context and calculates link characteristic parameters from the received uplink and downlink Transport
Format Combination Indicator (TFCI) or Transport Format Set (TFS) information.
6. Radio Link Setup Response. The Node B indicates to the RNC that the necessary resources are
allocated for the radio link. It includes the binding identifier and transport layer address for the AAL2
connection.
7. AAL2 Connection Setup for DCH. The transport bearer (AAL2 connection) needed for signaling is
set up over the Iub by the RNC.
8. Start Receive of UL DPCH Start Radio Synchronization. The Radio Link Set Supervision
algorithm in the Node B starts evaluating the synchronization status of the Radio Link Set (RLS).
9. Suspend SRB3, SRB4, and other RLC AM entities. Signaling Radio Bearer 3 (SRB 3), Signaling
Radio Bearer 4 (SRB 4), and other Radio Link Control Acknowledged Mode (RLC AM) entities are
suspended.

12. Start Transmission of DL DPCH. The Node B only starts transmitting on the new radio link when
the downlink user plane (Dedicated Physical Data CHannel DPDCH) is considered synchronized.
13. L1 Synchronization. Layer 1 synchronization is achieved between UE and Node B.
14. Radio Link Restore Indication. The Node B notifies the RNC that it has achieved uplink Layer 1
synchronization with the UE.
15. RRC Connection Complete. The UE starts the uplink transmission only after the reception of
downlink Dedicated Physical Channel (DPCH). The UE capabilities requested in step 10 are included
in this message. This information is used by the Radio Access Bearer (RAB) establishment
procedure, UE Security Handling, and the Channel Switching function. Radio Resource Control
(RRC) messages can now be sent in acknowledged mode on a Dedicated CHannel (DCH).
16. Resume SRB3, SRB4, and other RLC AM entities. The SRB3, SRB4, and other Radio Link
Control Acknowledged Mode (RLC AM) entities are resumed.
Through this dedicated connection, the UE is able to Register with the appropriate Core Network (CN)
Element(s).

5.1.4 Location and Routing Area Updates


Location and Routing Area Updates, also known as Registration updates, must be performed in order to
provide the SGSN and MSC with an awareness of where the UE is located. Given the UEs location, the
Core Network (CN) element can page the UE to deliver calls. This awareness helps to avoid
unnecessary paging when the UE is either turned off or is outside of the coverage area. Location Areas
are defined through the lAC [LA, N/A, Integer, Variable] broadcast on the Broadcast Control CHannel
(BCCH) in System Information Block 1 (SIB 1). Routing Areas are defined through the rAC [RNC, N/A,
Integer, Variable] also broadcast on the Broadcast Control CHannel (BCCH) in System Information Block
1 (SIB 1). Besides IMSI and GPRS Attaches, there are basically two different types of Registration
update; Normal and Periodic.

5.1.4.1

Normal Update

A Normal Location or Routing Area update is performed when the UE either leaves Connected Mode, or
performs a Cell Reselection in Idle Mode to a cell within a different Location or Routing Area.

5.1.4.2

Periodic Update

In addition to Normal Updates, Periodic Updates are performed. These updates are preformed
regardless of whether the UE is in Idle Mode or Connected Mode (CELL_DCH).
Circuit Switched Core Network. The interval at which the UE periodically updates the Circuit Switched Core
Network (CS-CN) is set using the configurable t3212 [LA, 10, 6minutes, Fixed] parameter sent on the Broadcast
Control CHannel (BCCH) in System Information Block 1 (SIB 1).
Packet Switched Core Network. The interval at which the UE periodically updates the Packet Switched Core

Network (PS-CN) is set using the t3312 timer. This timer is set in the SGSN and sent to the UE via both the Attach
and the Routing Area Update messages.

The following table provides parameter ranges and default values involved in getting the UE into Idle
Mode. They are listed in the same order they were presented. The Level column indicates the network
element that owns the parameter. The class column indicates if the parameter is set based on Policy
(must be set this way), Fixed (recommended to be set this way) and Variable (set at your discretion).

5.2

Call Establishment

Given the UE has successfully entered Idle Mode; it must then be able to originate and terminate calls
within acceptable Accessibility measures. This section considers all of the algorithms invoked during the
process of establishing a call.

5.2.1 Radio Access Bearer


A Radio Access Bearer (RAB) is a connection between the UE and the Mobile Switching Center (MSC) in
the case of a Circuit Switched (CS) connection or between the UE and Serving GPRS Support Node
(SGSN) in the case of a Packet Switched connection. There is also the possibility of the UE connecting
to both the MSC and the SGSN as is the case in both SP0 and SP64. The Radio Access Bearer is set up
according to the Requested Service after the Signaling Connection is established through a Signaling
Radio Bearer. In the case of UE initiated connections where a Radio Access Bearer does not already
exist, the Requested Service is sent in the Random Access CHannel (RACH) Message Part. Although
the Requested Service could be sent by the UE, all Radio Access Bearers are actually initiated by the
Core Network (CN).
The variables within Quality of Service (QoS) fall into three main categories based upon the users need
for guaranteed throughput and/or latency. The three categories are Conversational; which provides
guaranteed low latency and throughput, Streaming; which provides guaranteed throughput but no
guarantee for latency, and Interactive (also referred to as Background) which provides guarantees for
neither throughput nor latency.
Another variable determines which side of the Core Network is used. In general, all Packet Switched
Radio Access Bearers are connected to the SGSN and all Circuit Switched Radio Access Bearers are
connected to the MSC.
The following types of Radio Access Bearers (RABs) are supported by the Ericsson UTRAN.
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb. This is the typical Speech Radio Access Bearer. Given
its Conversational Quality of Service (QoS) class, low latency and constant throughput are guaranteed. The
Conversational class of service is Transparent, meaning that in order to keep latency as low as possible, there is
no Transport layer Block retransmission service offered.
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb plus Interactive Packet Switched 64/64. This type of
Radio Access Bearer supports concurrent Circuit Switched Speech and Packet Switched Data. The Interactive
Quality of Service (QoS) class Data connection can support a data rate of 64kb in the Uplink and 64kb in the
downlink. Neither latency nor throughput is guaranteed for the Packet Switched connection. Ericsson refers to
this type of Radio Access Bearer (RAB) as SP64.
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb plus Interactive Packet Switched 64/HS. This type of
Radio Access Bearer supports concurrent Circuit Switched Speech and Packet Switched Data. The Interactive

Quality of Service (QoS) class Data connection can support a data rate of 64kb in the Uplink and HSDPA for the
downlink. Neither latency nor throughput is guaranteed for the Packet Switched connection.
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb plus Interactive Packet Switched 384/HS. This type of
Radio Access Bearer supports concurrent Circuit Switched Speech and Packet Switched Data. The Interactive
Quality of Service (QoS) class Data connection can support a data rate of 384kb in the Uplink and HSDPA for the
downlink. Neither latency nor throughput is guaranteed for the Packet Switched connection.
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb plus Interactive Packet Switched 0/0. This Radio
Access Bearer (RAB) offers both Speech and a 0 bit rate Packet Switched connection. The 0 bit rate Packet
Switched connection is used as a stepping stone between 64/64 and Idle Mode. The result is a reduction in
latency from the end users perspective when using interactive applications such as Web Browsing. Ericsson
refers to this type of Radio Access Bearer (RAB) as SP0. The availability of this Radio Access Bearer (RAB) is
controlled through multiRabSp0Available [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed].
Conversational Circuit Switched Data 64. This Radio Access Bearer (RAB) provides a Conversational class
64kb/s Unrestricted Digital Information (UDI) connection between the UE and the Circuit Switched Core Network.
The Conversational class of service is Transparent, meaning that in order to keep latency as low as possible, there
is no Transport layer Block retransmission service offered.
Conversational Circuit Switched Data 64 plus Interactive Packet Switched 8/8. This Radio Access Bearer
(RAB) provides a Conversational class 64kb/s Unrestricted Digital Information (UDI) connection between the UE
and the Circuit Switched Core Network plus an Interactive class 8kb uplink, 8kb downlink Packet Switched
connection between the UE and Packet Switched Core Network. Ericsson refers to this type of Radio Access
Bearer (RAB) as UDI8. The availability of this Radio Access Bearer (RAB) is controlled through
multiRabUdi8Available [RNC, 0=FALSE, Binary, Fixed].
Streaming Circuit Switched 57.6. This Radio Access Bearer (RAB) provides a Streaming class connection
between the UE and Circuit Switched Core Network with guaranteed throughput of up to 57.6kb and guaranteed
low latency.
Streaming Packet Switched 16/64. This Radio Access Bearer (RAB) provides a Streaming class connection
between the UE and the Packet Switched Core Network with guaranteed throughput of up to 57.6kb on the
downlink and 16kb in the uplink. Latency is not guaranteed.
Streaming Packet Switched 16/64 plus Interactive Packet Switched 8/8. This Radio Access Bearer (RAB)
provides a Streaming class connection between the UE and the Packet Switched Core Network with guaranteed
throughput of up to 57.6kb on the downlink and 16kb in the uplink plus an interactive class 8kb uplink, 8kb
downlink Packet Switched connection between the UE and Packet Switched Core Network. Throughput is only
guaranteed for the Streaming class connection. Latency is not guaranteed for either connection.
Streaming Packet Switched 16/128. This Radio Access Bearer (RAB) provides a Streaming class connection
between the UE and the Packet Switched Core Network with guaranteed throughput of up to 112kb on the
downlink and 16kb in the uplink. Latency is not guaranteed.
Streaming Packet Switched 16/128 plus Interactive Packet Switched 8/8. This Radio Access Bearer (RAB)
provides a Streaming class connection between the UE and the Packet Switched Core Network with a guaranteed
throughput of up to 112kb on the downlink and 16kb in the uplink plus an interactive class 8kb uplink, 8kb downlink
Packet Switched connection between the UE and Packet Switched Core Network. Throughput is only guaranteed
for the Streaming class connection. Latency is not guaranteed for either connection. The availability of this Radio
Access Bearer (RAB) is controlled through psStreaming128 [RNC, 0=FALSE, Binary, Fixed].
Interactive Packet Switched HSDPA with 384 uplink. This Radio Access Bearer provides an interactive
connection between the UE and Packet Switched Core Network of 1.8Mb on the downlink and 384kb on the
uplink. Neither latency nor throughput is guaranteed. The availability of this Radio Access Bearer (RAB) is
controlled through allow384HsRab [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed].
Interactive Packet Switched HSDPA with 64 uplink. This Radio Access Bearer provides an interactive
connection between the UE and Packet Switched Core Network of 1.8Mb on the downlink and 64kb on the uplink.
Neither latency nor throughput is guaranteed.
Interactive Packet Switched DCH/DCH. This Radio Access Bearer (RAB) provides an interactive connection
between the UE and Packet Switched Core Network of 64kb, 128kb or 384kb on the uplink and 64kb, 128kb or
384kb on the downlink. Neither latency nor throughput is guaranteed. The initial Dedicated Channel (DCH)

selected for all non-HSDPA capable mobiles requesting a Packet Switched Interactive connection is 64/64. The
availability of the 128/128 Radio Access Bearer (RAB) is controlled through state128_128Supported [RNC,
1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed].
Interactive Packet Switched EUL/HS. This Radio Access Bearer (RAB) provides an interactive connection
between the UE and Packet Switched Core Network using Enhanced Uplink (EUL) or HSUPA on the Uplink and
HSDPA on the Downlink.

Ericsson supports many types of Radio Access Bearers (RABs) as shown above; however, our end to
end network does not currently support Differentiated Service through the use of QoS profiles.
Our current implementation supports only the following Radio Access Bearer (RAB) configurations.
Conversational Circuit Switched AMR 12.2kb for Speech.
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb for Speech plus Interactive Packet Switched 64/64 or 0/0
(SP64/SP0). This is also referred to as MultiRAB.
Interactive Packet Switched 64/64 for non-HSDPA capable UEs. Up-switching allows for all combinations of 64,
128, and 384 on the Uplink and Downlink. Down-switching allows the use of common channels (RACH and
FACH) for User Plane data.
Interactive Packet Switched 64kb or 384kb uplink with HSDPA downlink for UEs with HSDPA capability.
Interactive Packet Switched Enhanced Uplink (EUL) with HSDPA downlink for UEs with EUL/HS capability.
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb for Speech plus Interactive Packet Switched 384kb or 64kb
uplink with HSDPA downlink for UEs with HSDPA capability. This is also referred to as HS MultiRAB

5.2.2 Mobile Origination / Termination


The establishment of a Radio Access Bearer (RAB) in the case of a Mobile Origination or Termination
begins with either a RACH on the uplink, or a Page on the downlink. The establishment of an RRC
Connection is identical to the process used in Figure 4 within the Idle Mode section except that the
resulting Transparent Message Transfer connection between the UE and Core Network (CN) element
specifies a Service Request for a User Plane connection. Based upon the type of Service requested, the
Core Network Sends a RAB ASSIGNMENT REQUEST to the Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC)
indicating the RAB ID.
The Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC) determines the new Radio Connection based upon the
type of Service Requested by the Core Network taking into consideration any existing Radio Connections
between it and the UE. There are also functions as described in the following subsections that determine
the treatment of the Service Request. Each is considered independent of the others. The parameters
that guide the operation of each function are described within context.

5.2.2.1

Paging

There are two primary uses for paging. One is to inform UEs of an incoming call, the other is to inform
UEs of new System Information broadcast on the Broadcast Control CHannel (BCCH). Pages for calls
can be sent from either the Packet Switched or the Circuit Switched core network. A UE may be paged
while it is in Idle Mode, CELL_FACH state or in CELL_DCH state.
In Idle Mode, the Secondary Common Control Physical CHannel (S-CCPCH) and the Paging Indicator
CHannel (PICH) are used. The Paging Indicator CHannel (PICH) power is set relative to the Primary
Common Pilot CHannel (PCPICH) through pichPower [Cell, -7, dB, Fixed].

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3


The Secondary Common Control Physical CHannel (S-CCPCH) carries the Paging CHannel (PCH) logical
channel. The Paging CHannel (PCH) power is set relative to the Primary Common Pilot CHannel (PCPICH)
through pchPower [RNC, -4, 0.1dB, Fixed]. The Paging CHannel (PCH) is used to carry the Radio Resource
Control (RRC) Message Paging type 1 which carries the actual paging message from the Core Network.
In order to conserve UE battery life, the UE does not always read the Paging CHannel (PCH). The Paging
Indicator CHannel (PICH) is used to indicate when the UE should read the Paging CHannel (PCH). Each Paging
Indicator CHannel (PICH) frame consists of a number of Paging Indicators. The UEs are divided into a number of
groups, and each group reads a specific Paging Indicator that tells if it should read the Paging CHannel (PCH).
The interval at which the UE reads the Paging Indicator CHannel (PICH) is determined by its own International
Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) and the Discontinuous Reception (DRX) Cycle Length.

The Discontinuous Reception (DRX) Cycle Length = 2k * 10ms


Where:
k = cnDrxCycleLengthCs [RNC, 7=1280, coeff, Fixed] for Circuit Switched services cnDrxCycleLengthPs [RNC,
7=1280, coeff, Fixed] for Packet Switched services and utranDrxCycleLength [RNC, 5=320, coeff, Fixed] for UEs
in URA_PCH State.
10ms is equal to the duration of a System Frame

In CELL_FACH state or in CELL_DCH state a connection exists between the UTRAN and the UE. The
RRC message "Paging type 2" is used to carry paging information over the dedicated connection.
The noOfPagingRecordTransm [RNC, 2, Integer, Fixed] controls the number of times a single page
from the Core Network will be sent by the UTRAN.
UEs in Idle Mode are informed of new System Information broadcast on the Broadcast Control CHannel
(BCCH) through consecutive Paging type 1 messages. The number of times a UE (that uses maximum
possible DRX cycle length) hears the updated system information is defined by the parameter
noOfMaxDrxCycles [RNC, 1, DRX cycles, Fixed].

5.2.2.2

Admission Control

Admission Control is a function that determines if a new radio link can be allowed on the cell given the
cells current resource load. New radio links can be requested for Call Origination, Termination,
Handover or when existing radio links are modified.
Transport resources (Iub) are not considered during Admission Control procedures and as such do not
have any affect on Admission Control.

When a request is made of Admission Control, Service Classes (Guaranteed, Guaranteed-HS and NonGuaranteed) and Setup Types (Handover and Non-Handover) are used to allow for prioritization among
requests for different types of radio links.
The following radio connection types (supported by AT&T) correspond to the Guaranteed Service Class:
Stand alone Signaling Radio Bearers (SRB)
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb plus Interactive Packet Switched 0kb/0kb (SP0).

The following radio connection types (supported by AT&T) correspond to the Non-Guaranteed Service
Class:
Interactive Packet Switched 64/64, 64/128, 128/128 and 64/384
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2 plus Interactive Packet Switched 64kb/64kb (SP64)

The following radio connection types (supported by AT&T) correspond to the Guaranteed-HS Service
Class:
Interactive Packet Switched 384/HS
Interactive Packet Switched 64/HS
Conversational Circuit Switched Speech AMR 12.2kb for Speech plus Interactive Packet Switched 384kb or 64kb
uplink with HSDPA for downlink

The first decisions made to admit or block Radio Link admission requests are based upon two algorithms
that use the following two configurable parameters. See the figure below.
Admission Control blocks new radio link admission requests for HSDPA when the number of users assigned to the
High Speed Downlink Shared CHannel (HS-DSCH) in the cell exceeds hsdpaUsersAdm [Cell, 10, Users, Var.].
This configurable parameter does not apply to requests made as a result of Cell Change (mobility). The total
number of HS users in the cell is limited by maxNumHsdpaUsers [Cell, 16, Users, Var.].
Admission Control blocks admission requests for a radio link in compressed mode when the current number of
radio links exceeds compModeAdm [Cell, 15, Radio Links, Var.].
Admission control will block admission for an E-DCH user requesting the cell as serving cell if the total number of
serving cell E-DCH users including the requested is greater than eulServingCellUsersAdm [Cell, 4, E-DCH users,
Fixed].
Admission control will block admission for an E-DCH user requesting the cell as non-serving cell if the total number
of non-serving cell E-DCH users including the requested is greater than eulNonServingCellUsersAdm [Cell, 10,
E-DCH users, Fixed].

Downlink Channelization Codes. In order to reserve Channelization Codes for Handover, admission is blocked
for all Guaranteed / Non-Handover and Guaranteed-HS / Non-Handover requests when Channelization Code
utilization exceeds dlCodeAdm [Cell, 70, %, Var.] of the total Channelization Codes in the cell. Furthermore, NonGuaranteed / Non-Handover admission requests are blocked when Channelization Code utilization exceeds

Uplink and Downlink Spreading Factor usage. The Histogram Monitor keeps track of Spreading Factor usage
in the uplink and downlink. It also measures the number of Compressed Mode radio links and the number of HS
serving radio links in the cell in order to allow or deny requests for either Handover or Non-Handover based upon
Spreading Factor utilization.
Non-Guaranteed admission requests of Spreading Factor 8 in the downlink are denied when the use of
Spreading Factor 8 exceeds sf8Adm [Cell, 8, Radio Links, Fixed]. The 384kb Radio Access Bearer uses
Spreading Factor 8 on the downlink.
Non-Guaranteed admission requests of Spreading Factor 16 in the downlink are denied when the use of
Spreading Factor 16 exceeds sf16Adm [Cell, 16, Radio Links, Var.]. The 128kb Radio Access Bearer uses
Spreading Factor 16 on the downlink.
Non-Guaranteed admission requests of Spreading Factor 32 in the downlink are denied when the use of
Spreading Factor 32 exceeds sf32Adm [Cell, 32, Radio Links, Var.]. The 64kb Radio Access Bearer uses
Spreading Factor 32 on the downlink.
Guaranteed admission requests of Spreading Factor 16 in the downlink are denied when the use of Spreading
Factor 16 (Streaming 16kb/128kb) exceeds sf16gAdm [Cell, 16, Radio Links, Var.]. However, AT&T does not
currently support any Guaranteed Radio Access Bearers that use Spreading Factor 16.
Guaranteed HS or Non-Guaranteed admission requests of Spreading Factor 16 in the uplink (64kb) are denied
when the use of Spreading Factor 16 in the uplink exceeds sf16AdmUl [Cell, 50, Radio Links, Var.].
Guaranteed HS or Non-Guaranteed admission requests of Spreading Factor 8 in the uplink (128kb) are denied
when the use of Spreading Factor 8 in the uplink exceeds sf8AdmUl [Cell, 8, Radio Links, Var.].
Guaranteed HS admission requests of Spreading Factor 4 in the uplink (384kb) are denied when the use of
Spreading Factor 4 in the uplink exceeds sf4AdmUl [Cell, 6, Radio Links, Var.].

The sf4AdmUl [Cell, 6, Radio Links, Var.] parameter is Cell based relative to the RNC based
allow384HsRab [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] parameter. Given this, the number of cells where
384kb/HSDPA is possible within the RNC can be controlled.

Downlink Non-HS Power / Soft Congestion. Downlink power utilization is measured in the cell. In addition to
Admission Control taking the following actions based upon Downlink power utilization, a Soft Congestion
mechanism is triggered. Upon Admission Control blocking a non 384kb Downlink Admission request, the
mechanism Down-Switches the Downlink for one existing Non-Guaranteed Service Class connection to the next
lowest rate. 384kb Downlink Radio Access Bearer (RAB) requests do not trigger Down-Switches since all 384kb
Radio Access Bearers (RABs) result from Up-Switches and under Congested conditions, the Up-Switch request
would be blocked.
Transmitted Code Power utilization is monitored and admission is blocked for all Guaranteed / Non-Handover
and Non-Guaranteed / Handover requests when the Transmitted Code Power utilization exceeds pwrAdm [Cell,
75, %, Var.] of maximumTransmissionPower [Cell, 400, 0.1dBm, Var.] which sets the maximum power available
in the cell at the Reference Point (antenna connector).

The Air Speech Equivalent (ASE) provides a unit of Uu interface load. Through its use in the Admission Control
algorithm, increases in noise in the uplink and downlink as a function of loading can be considered before the
Radio Link is established.
For the Uplink, the Air Speech Equivalent (ASE) is monitored and admission is blocked for all Guaranteed /
Non-Handover, Non-Guaranteed / Handover and Guaranteed-HS / Non-Handover requests when the number of
Air Speech Equivalents exceeds aseUlAdm [Cell, 500, ASE, Var.]. Non-Guaranteed / Non-Handover requests are

Emergency Call Redirect to 2G for Speech

If emergencyCallRedirect [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] is set to TRUE, an emergency (911) call made
by a UE on the UMTS network will be redirected to GSM. The call will be established on the GSM
network after Cell Selection on the GSM network has taken place.
This procedure is applied when there is no existing Radio Connection. If there is an existing connection
between the UE and Packet Switched Core Network, the 911 call will be placed through the 3G network.
In this case, only the Cell ID of the serving cell will be used for location purposes.
The current recommendation is to enable this capability by setting emergencyCallRedirect [RNC,
1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] to TRUE due to the fact that the E911 solution for WCDMA does not provide the
level of location detection accuracy provided by the GSM solution.

5.2.2.4

Uplink Pathloss Threshold for 384/HS

If Admission Control grants the request, and if ulPathlossCheckEnabled [Cell, FALSE, String, Var.] is
set to TRUE, the amount of Uplink pathloss for a 384/HS Radio Access Bearer (RAB) request is
determined. If the Uplink pathloss is greater than sf4UlPathlossThreshold [Cell, 170, dB, Var.] , then a
64k uplink Radio Access Bearer (RAB) is used instead of a 384kb Radio Access Bearer (RAB). This
check only occurs at establishment and therefore is technically not a Down-Switch. However, it can be
used to limit the number of HS capable UEs in 384kb uplink soft handover at the cell edge.

5.2.2.5

Directed Retry to GSM for Speech

Speech requests without ongoing packet connections (Multi-RAB) are considered for Directed Retry to
GSM during RAB establishment based upon the setting of loadSharingDirRetryEnabled [RNC,
0=FALSE, Binary, Fixed]. If this configurable parameter is set to TRUE, and the WCDMA cell exceeds
loadSharingGsmThreshold [Cell, 100, %, Fixed] of pwrAdm [Cell, 75, %, Var.], the UTRAN requests a
blind inter-RAT handover for loadSharingGsmFraction [Cell, 100, %, Fixed] of the Directed Retry
candidates to the directedRetryTarget [Cell, N/A, N/A, Var.] configured GSM cell via the core network.
The current recommendation is to disable this capability by setting loadSharingDirRetryEnabled [RNC,
0=FALSE, Binary, Fixed] to FALSE. All other parameters associated with this function are simply
defaulted.

5.2.2.6

Inter-Frequency Load Sharing

If multiple UARFCNs are available at a given Node B loadSharingRrcEnabled [RNC, 0=FALSE, Binary,
Fixed] is set the TRUE, Inter-Frequency Load Sharing will determine if the WCDMA cell exceeds
loadSharingMargin [Cell, 0, %, Fixed] of pwrAdm [Cell, 75, %, Var.] at each call setup during Radio
Resource Control (RRC) Connection Establishment. If the cell exceeds loadSharingMargin [Cell, 0, %,
Fixed] of pwrAdm [Cell, 75, %, Var.], the UE will be directed to the UARFCN defined by the InterFrequency load sharing neighbor as indicated by the loadSharingCandidate [Nabr, N/A, N/A, Var.] flag.
The current recommendation is to disable this capability by setting loadSharingRrcEnabled [RNC,
0=FALSE, Binary, Fixed] to FALSE. All other parameters associated with this function are simply
defaulted.

5.2.2.7

Packet Switched RAB Determination

If the Service requested of the UTRAN is Interactive Packet Switched and the UE is HSDPA capable:
The Radio Access Bearer options are 384/HS (if allow384HsRab [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] is set to TRUE)
or 64/HS. The UE is then assigned based upon the setting of hsOnlyBestCell [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] to
the best cell in the Active Set.

The current recommendation is to set the value of hsOnlyBestCell [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] to
TRUE thereby allowing HSDPA to be supported on the best cell in the Active Set.

If the Service requested of the UTRAN is Interactive Packet Switched and the UE is not HS capable,
packetEstMode [RNC, 1, Integer, Fixed] is used.
If packetEstMode [RNC, 1, Integer, Fixed] =0, the attempt will be made to allocate the UE on RACH/FACH.
If packetEstMode [RNC, 1, Integer, Fixed] =1, the attempt will be made to allocate the UE on 64/64.
If packetEstMode [RNC, 1, Integer, Fixed] =2, then an attempt will be made to allocate the UE on 64/64, but if
Admission Control blocks the assignment to a 64/64, the UE is sent to RACH/FACH.

The current recommendation is to set the value of packetEstMode [RNC, 1, Integer, Fixed] =2 thereby
allowing an attempt at a 64kb/64kb Radio Access Bearer with fallback to RACH/FACH if you are denied.

The following table provides parameter ranges and default values involved Establishing a Call. They are
listed in the same order they were presented. The Level column indicates the network element that owns
the parameter. The class column indicates if the parameter is set based on Policy (must be set this way),
Fixed (recommended to be set this way) and Variable (set at your discretion).

5.2.2.8

Active Queue Management (AQM)

Active Queue Management improves throughput for TCP based applications by selectively dropping
packets when queues begin to reach overflow thus reducing the probability of the overflow occurring.
The capability is controlled by the configurable parameter activeQueueMgmt [RNC, 0=OFF, Binary,
Fixed].

5.3

Mobility and Connection Management

This section contains the protocols and configurable parameters involved in maintaining a call once it has
been established. Measurement Fundamentals as they apply to Mobility Management and Power Control
are explained. Intra-RAT (UMTS) and Inter-RAT (UMTS to GSM) Idle Mode Cell Reselection, Connected
Mode Handover (including Inter-RAT) and HSDPA Cell Change are covered. Channel Switching and
Congestion Control as they occur after Call Establishment are also included.

5.3.1 Measurement Fundamentals


Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH) Ec/No, Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH), Received
Signal Code Power (RSCP) and UE Transmitted power are the quantities measured by the UE that when
certain conditions are met; trigger events that may lead to one of the following:
Cell Reselection in Idle Mode or CELL_FACH (intra or inter RAT)
Handover in Connected Mode (CELL_DCH) (intra or inter RAT)
HS Cell Change (intra or inter RAT)

CPICH Ec/No and CPICH RSCP are explained in the Design Criteria section.

5.3.2 Cell Reselection in Idle Mode or CELL_FACH


In Idle Mode, the UE maintains a relationship with both sides of the Core Network (PS and CS) in order to
allow for the establishment of calls. First, an event has to be triggered based upon configurable
parameters sent in System Information Block (SIB), then the Cell Reselection candidates are ranked
according to signal level and quality. In CELL_FACH, the UE is actually Connected Mode but is using
Common Channels to relay User Plane data.

5.3.2.1

Idle Mode Cell Reselection Triggers

When in Idle Mode, URA_PCH or CELL_FACH, the UE communicates with one serving cell (no Soft
Handover). The UE camps on this cell until one of the following triggers occurs:
The cell is no longer suitable in terms of signal level (Srxlev) and quality (Squal). See Camping on a Suitable
Cell in the Idle Mode section.
The quality (Squal) of the serving cell falls below sIntraSearch [Cell, 22=10, dB, Fixed] at which point the UE will
search for a better quality Intra-Frequency cell.
If Inter-Frequency neighbors are assigned to the cell and the quality (Squal) of the serving cell falls below
sInterSearch [Cell, 0, dB, Fixed]. If there are no Inter-Frequency neighbors defined on the cell, the setting of
sInterSearch [Cell, 0, dB, Fixed] has no impact.
If Inter-RAT neighbors are assigned to the cell and either of the following two conditions are met:
The serving cells CPICH Ec/No becomes equal to or below qQualMin [Cell, -19, dB, Fixed] + sRatSearch
[Cell, 4, dB, Fixed].
The serving cells CPICH RSCP becomes equal to or below qRxLevMin [Cell, -115, dBm, Fixed] + sHcsRat
[Cell, -105, dB, Fixed]. Negative values for sHcsRat [Cell, -105, dB, Fixed] are interpreted by the UE as 0.
If there are no Inter-RAT neighbors defined on the cell, the settings of sRatSearch [Cell, 4, dB, Fixed] and
sHcsRat [Cell, -105, dB, Fixed] have no impact.

The sHcsRat [Cell, -105, dB, Fixed] functionality is supported by CR130 which was implemented in the
Qualcomm chipset in October of 2006. As such, it will not be advantageous to utilize sHcsRat [Cell, 105, dB, Fixed] until most of the UE in production support it.

If interFreqFddMeasIndicator [Cell, 0=FALSE, Binary, Fixed] is set to TRUE, a UE in CELL_FACH will


evaluate Inter-Frequency and Inter-RAT neighbors using the same triggering mechanism used in Idle
Mode. The UE performs Inter-frequency and Inter-RAT measurements during FACH measurement
occasions. FACH measurement occasions are defined as being the frames where the following equation
is fulfilled.
SFN = C-RNTI mod n * 2k
Where:
SFN is the System Frame Number
C-RNTI is the Cell Radio Network Temporary Identity
n is 0, 1, 2 etc.
k is fachMeasOccaCycLenCoeff [Cell, 4, Integer, Fixed]

5.3.2.2

Candidate Ranking

After the UE has been triggered to perform measurements, the measurements that satisfy the Cell
Selection S criteria (Squal and Srxlev are positive for UMTS neighbors or only Srxlev is positive for GSM
neighbors) are ranked according to the R criteria.
R(s) = Qmeas(s) + qHyst(s)
R(n) = Qmeas(n) - qOffset(s,n)
Where:
s is the serving cell
n is the neighbor cell
Qmeas is either the CPICH RSCP (qualMeasQuantity [Cell, 2=CPICH_EC_NO, String, Fixed] =CPICH_RSCP) or
the CPICH Ec/No (qualMeasQuantity [Cell, 2=CPICH_EC_NO, String, Fixed] =CPICH_EC_NO) of the
neighboring UMTS cell. The ranking for a GSM neighbor is always done using the serving cells CPICH RSCP
and the neighboring GSM cells Received Signal Level.
qHyst(s) is a hysteresis value read in System Information Block (SIB) 3 based upon qHyst1 [Cell, 2, dB, Fixed] if
qualMeasQuantity [Cell, 2=CPICH_EC_NO, String, Fixed] =CPICH_RSCP or qHyst2 [Cell, 2, dB, Fixed] if
qualMeasQuantity [Cell, 2=CPICH_EC_NO, String, Fixed] =CPICH_EC_NO.
qOffset is an offset between the serving cell and the neighboring cell that can be used to adjust the border
between the two cells. The parameter is set per neighbor using qOffset1sn if qualMeasQuantity [Cell,
2=CPICH_EC_NO, String, Fixed] =CPICH_RSCP or qOffset2sn [Nabr, 0, dB, Fixed] if qualMeasQuantity [Cell,
2=CPICH_EC_NO, String, Fixed] =CPICH_EC_NO. qOffset1sn(UtranRelation) [Nabr, 0, dB, Fixed] is used for
Intra-Frequency neighbor relationships, and qOffset1sn(GsmRelation) [Nabr, 7, dB, Fixed] is used for Inter-RAT
or neighbor relationships.

The initial ranking is done using the measurement quantity CPICH RSCP.
If a GSM cell is ranked better than the serving cell for the time interval treSelection [Cell, 1, seconds, Fixed], the
UE performs Cell Reselection to that cell.
If a UMTS cell is ranked better than the serving cell for the time interval treSelection [Cell, 1, seconds, Fixed] one
of the following two possibilities will occur:
If the measurement quantity for Cell Reselection is set to CPICH RSCP (qualMeasQuantity [Cell,
2=CPICH_EC_NO, String, Fixed]), the UE performs Cell Reselection.
If the measurement quantity for Cell Reselection is set to CPICH Ec/No (qualMeasQuantity [Cell,
2=CPICH_EC_NO, String, Fixed]), the UE performs a second ranking of the UMTS cells based on CPICH Ec/No
and performs Cell Reselection to the best quality cell.

5.3.3 Handover in Connected Mode (CELL_DCH) Intra-Frequency


Immediately after Call Setup, a UE is served by only one site. During RRC Connection Establishment the
Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC) sends the UE a MEASURMENT CONTROL message
containing a list of neighbors and parameters values used to trigger neighbor measurements. This
information was also sent in System Information Blocks (SIBs) 11 and 12 while the UE was in Idle Mode,
so the UE has the information it needs in order to make neighbor measurements before it receives a
MEASURMENT CONTROL message.
In Connected Mode, the UE continuously measures the Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH)
Ec/No of all the cells in its Active Set (cells that are in soft handover), Monitored Set (cells which are on
the neighbor list, but are not in soft handover) and Detected Set (cells that are not in the neighbor list).

The UE Filters, Offsets and Weights the measurements to ensure the criteria for one of the following
Events are met. If one of the criteria is met, the UE sends a MEASUREMENT REPORT to the RNC.
Active Set Addition (Event 1a)
Active Set Deletion (Event 1b)
Active Set Replacement of worst cell (Event 1c)
Change of Best Cell (Event 1d)

Fixed] + hysteresis1a [RNC, 0, 0.5dB, Fixed] / 2, for a time equal to timeToTrigger1a [RNC, 11=320,
ms, Fixed] , then event 1a occurs. The UE then sends a MEASUREMENT REPORT message for event
1a to the Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC). If the number of cells in the Active Set is less than
maxActiveSet [RNC, 3, Radio Links, Fixed], the cell is considered for addition to the Active Set. If the
number of cells in the Active Set is equal to maxActiveSet [RNC, 3, Radio Links, Fixed], then the cell is
proposed as a replacement for the cell with the worst quality in the Active Set.
If the cell under consideration is not in the Monitored Set (not a configured neighbor), and its CPICH
Ec/No is more than releaseConnOffset [RNC, 120, 0.1dB, Fixed] greater than the Best Cell in the Active
Set, the call is disconnected. This is done to protect surrounding cells from Uplink interference. The UE
will continue to send the event 1a MEASUREMENT REPORT each reportingInterval1a [RNC, 3=1,
seconds, Fixed] until the Active Set is updated or the condition responsible for triggering the event is no
longer valid.

Where:
Fn = The updated measurement.
Fn-1 = the last (old) filtered measurement result.
Mn = the Ec/No as measured by the UE.
a = 1/2(k/2) where k is filterCoefficient1 [RNC, 2, coeff, Fixed].

Weighting: For Events 1a, and 1b, w1a [RNC, 0, 0.1unit, Fixed] and w1b [RNC, 0, 0.1unit, Fixed]
respectively can be added in order to give heavier weight to cells in the Active Set that are not the best
cell in the Active Set.

5.3.4 Handover in Connected Mode (CELL_DCH) Inter-Frequency or Inter-RAT


In Connected Mode, the UE continuously measures the Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH)
Ec/No and Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH) RSCP of the Best Cell in the Active Set. When
one of the following Events occurs, the UE is commanded to either start or stop Compressed Mode (CM)
measurements for either Inter-RAT or Inter-Frequency neighbors.
The UE Filters, Offsets and Weights the measurements to ensure the criteria for one of the following
Events are met. If one of the criteria is met, the UE sends a MEASUREMENT REPORT to the RNC.
Current Used Frequency is Below Threshold (Event 2d) Begin CM
Current Used Frequency is Above Threshold (Event 2f) Cease CM
UE Transmit power is Above Threshold (Event 6d) Begin CM
UE Transmit power is Below Threshold (Event 6b) Cease CM

The Serving RNC then determines whether the UE makes Compressed Mode (CM) messages on InterFrequency or Inter-RAT neighbors based upon configurable parameters.
Lastly, upon receiving the MEASUREMENT REPORT from the UE, the Serving RNC sends a
MEASUREMENT CONTROL message to the UE with additional Event based criteria that the UE will use
to evaluate its Inter-Frequency or Inter-RAT neighbors.
If hsToDchTrigger(poorQualityDetected) [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] is set to 1=ON, UEs with
HSDPA capability will be Down-Switched to an Interactive Packet Switched 64/64 Radio Access Bearer
(RAB) for Compressed Mode measurements. If hsToDchTrigger(poorQualityDetected) [RNC,
1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] is set to 0=OFF, HSDPA capable UEs could drop due to their not being allowed
to make Compressed Mode measurements.

The following describes the triggering and evaluation mechanism involved in Inter-Frequency and InterRAT Handover. The Handover algorithm is the same for Speech and Interactive Packet Switched R99
Data. All Interactive Packet Switched R99 Data connections are Down-Switched to Interactive Packet
Switched 64/64 to order to make Compressed Mode (CM) measurements.

Filtering, Offsetting and Weighting for Inter-Frequency or Inter-RAT measurements

Filtering: Before Events 2d or 6d can occur, the measurements made by the UE are Filtered according
to the formula below:
Fn = (1-a) F n-1 + a M n
Where:
Fn = The updated measurement.
Fn-1 = the last (old) filtered measurement result.
Mn = the Ec/No as measured by the UE.
a = 1/2(k/2) where k is filterCoefficient2 [RNC, 2, coeff, Fixed] or filterCoeff6 [RNC, 3, coeff, Fixed] respectively for
Events 2x or 6x.

Offsetting: The updated measurement (Fn) is then offset by individualOffset(UtranCell) [Cell, 0, 0.5dB,

Weighting: For Events 2d, and 2f, usedFreqW2d [RNC, 10, 0.1unit, Fixed] or usedFreqW2f [RNC, 10,
0.1unit, Fixed] respectively can be added in order to give heavier weight to cells in the Active Set that are
not the best cell in the Active Set.

5.3.4.6

Whether to measure Inter-Frequency or Inter-RAT

If Compressed Mode measurements are required of the UE, the following parameters are considered:
Inter-Frequency measurements can be made only if FddIfHoSupp [RNC, 0=FALSE, Binary, Fixed] =TRUE.
Compressed Mode measurements of Inter-RAT neighbors can be made only if FddGsmHoSupp [RNC, 1=TRUE,
Binary, Fixed] =TRUE.

If all Inter-Frequency neighbors are within the same Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC), hoType
[Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED, String, Fixed] determines if Inter-Frequency or Inter-RAT neighbors are
evaluated.
If however, all of the Inter-Frequency neighbors are not within the same Serving Radio Network Controller
(SRNC), a parameter called defaultHoType [Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED, String, Fixed] set per uarfcnDl
[Cell, N/A, Integer, Variable] for the Drift Radio Network Controller (DRNC) is used. This parameter has
been implemented due to a standards limitation in the Iur interface.
hoType [Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED, String, Fixed] and defaultHoType [Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED,
String, Fixed] have the following settings which determine how the UE will behave.
If at least one cell in Active Set has hoType [Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED, String, Fixed] =0 (IF-Preferred), then
Inter-Frequency neighbors are evaluated.
If at least one cell in Active Set has hoType [Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED, String, Fixed] =1 (GSM-Preferred), and
no cell has hoType [Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED, String, Fixed] =0 (IF-Preferred), then Inter-RAT neighbors are
evaluated.
If all cells in the Active Set have hoType [Cell, 1=GSM_PREFERRED, String, Fixed] =2 (None), then neither InterFrequency nor Inter-RAT neighbors are evaluated.

5.3.4.7

Compressed Mode Measurement evaluation

Upon receiving either Event 2d or Event 6d from the UE, the Serving RNC sends a MEASUREMENT
CONTROL message to the UE with additional Event based criteria that the UE will use to evaluate the
results of the Compressed Mode (CM) measurements.
The algorithm looks to see what initiated the Compressed Mode (CM) trigger.
CPICH Ec/No from Event 2d
CPICH RSCP from Event 2d
UE Transmission Power from Event 6d
If the Compressed Mode trigger measured Inter-Frequency or Inter-RAT measurements.

The following details the algorithms and configurable parameters that apply based upon the type of
trigger that initiated the Compressed Mode measurements.

In order to again obtain HSDPA service, the UE must first enter Idle Mode. Throughput on both the uplink
and downlink must fall below downswitchThreshold [RNC, 0, 1kbit/s, Fixed] , for a time equal to
downswitchTimer [RNC, 100, 100ms, Fixed]. Note that CELL_FACH is not supported over the Iur
interface and is therefore not considered.

5.3.6 Channel Switching


There are basically two kinds of Channel Switching. They are called Channel Type Switching and
Channel Rate Switching.
The Channel Type Switching algorithm applies after Interactive Class Call Establishment and allows for
the most efficient use of resources by dynamically switching the User Plane data connection between the
States of URA_PCH, CELL_FACH (Common Channels), and CELL_DCH (Dedicated Channels). The
UEs are Channel Type switched based upon the volume of data being transferred. The Channel Type
Switching algorithms are:
Throughput triggered Dedicated (DCH/DCH) to Common Down-Switch
Throughput triggered HS (DCH/HS or EUL/HS to Common Down-Switch
Buffer Load triggered Common to Dedicated (DCH/DCH, DCH/HS or EUL/HS) Up-Switch
Throughput triggered Common to Idle Mode Down-Switch
Throughput triggered Idle Mode to URA_PCH Down-Switch

The Channel Rate Switching algorithm likewise applies after Interactive Class Call Establishment to
CELL_DCH (Dedicated Channels) and allows for the most efficient use of resources by dynamically
Channel Rate Switching among the available R99 Interactive Class Radio Access Bearers (RABs). The
UEs are likewise Channel Rate switched based upon the volume of data being transferred over time. The
Channel Rate Switching algorithms are:
Throughput triggered Dedicated to Dedicated Down-Switch (Uplink)
Throughput triggered Dedicated to Dedicated Down-Switch (Downlink)
Throughput triggered Dedicated to Dedicated Up-Switch (Uplink)
Throughput triggered Dedicated to Dedicated Up-Switch (Downlink)
Coverage triggered Dedicated to Dedicated Down-Switch (Downlink only)
Throughput triggered Multi-RAB (Speech and Data) Dedicated to Dedicated Down-Switch

In addition to a UE being Up-Switched and Down-Switched due to User Plane data volume, a UE can be
Down-Switched for reasons of Congestion Control, Admission Control, Handover or Coverage.
Admission Control can Down-Switch Interactive Class users to 64/64 when resources are needed for Hand-in or
Call Establishment.
In order to support Inter-RNC and Inter-RAT HS Cell Change , UEs are down-switched to DCH/DCH. In the InterRNC case, the UE must stay on DCH/DCH on the Drift RNC until after it transitions to Idle Mode. For the Inter-

2007 AT&T

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3


RAT case, the UE is down-switched to 64/64 to allow for Compressed Mode measurements of the 2G network. If
the Compressed Mode measurements do not result in Inter-RAT Cell Change, the UE will return to its former
DCH/HS or EUL/HS condition.

The Channel Type and Rate Switching algorithms base decisions upon three quantities:
Buffer Load. Buffer load considers the size of the Radio Link Control (RLC) window and the total number of bytes
in the Service Data Unit (SDU) buffers and retransmission buffers. All Channel Type Up-Switches from either Idle
Mode or Common Channels are triggered by Buffer Load.
Throughput. Uplink throughput is defined as the number of bits per second coming up from the Medium Access
Control (MAC) Layer to the Radio Link Control (RLC) Layer. Downlink throughput is defined as the number of bits
per second coming down from the Radio Link Control (RLC) Layer to the Medium Access Control (MAC) Layer. All
Channel Rate Up-Switches and Down-Switches between Dedicated Channels are triggered by Throughput.
Downlink Code Power. The Downlink code power based upon the power of the pilot bits of the Dedicated
Physical Control CHannel (DPCCH).

The following sub sections define the algorithms wherein Up-Switches and Down-Switches occur.

Throughput triggered Dedicated (DCH/DCH) to Common Down-Switch

bandwidthMargin [RNC, 90, %, Fixed] of the current channels capability for an amount of time specified
by upswitchTimer [RNC, 5, 100ms, Fixed] , and the Downlink throughput has been below

5.3.6.10 Coverage triggered Dedicated to Dedicated Down-Switch


Coverage, or rather the lack of coverage, may cause the downlink code power to increase to its
maximum. In this case, a Down-Switch from 64/384 to 64/128 or from 64/128 to 64/64 is preferable to
exhausting power and possibly dropping the connection. The algorithm periodically (every 1 second)
monitors downlink code power on all legs in the Active Set. If the downlink code power on all legs in the
Active Set is within downswitchPwrMargin [RNC, 2, 0.5dB, Fixed] of maximumTransmissionPower
[Cell, 400, 0.1dBm, Var.] , then coverageTimer [RNC, 10, 100ms, Fixed] is started. If the code power on
all of the legs stays above maximumTransmissionPower [Cell, 400, 0.1dBm, Var.] - reportHysteresis
[RNC, 6, 0.5dB, Fixed] before coverageTimer [RNC, 10, 100ms, Fixed] expires, the UE is DownSwitched to the next lowest Radio Access Bearer (RAB).

5.3.7 HSDPA Scheduling


Given all HSDPA users are Interactive / Background Class and as such have no priority over each other,
there needs to be an ability to determine how the HS-DSCH is utilized among multiple users on a cell in
order to use the resource in the most efficient manner. queueSelectAlgorithm [Cell, 3, Integer, Fixed]
controls the method used to accomplish this. The options are:
1=ROUND_ROBIN. Users are prioritized based upon the amount of data waiting to be transmitted to them. The
longer the user has to wait, the higher their priority. There is no consideration for signal quality (CQI).
2=PROPORTIONAL_FAIR_MEDIUM. In addition to the Round Robin method, a medium consideration is given
to the users CQI. Because more time is given to users with better signal quality, cell throughput is improved over
both ROUND_ROBIN and PROPORTIONAL_FAIR_LOW. However, users with worse quality will not be
scheduled as often and as such will need the resource for a longer period of time.
3=PROPORTIONAL_FAIR_LOW. In addition to the Round Robin method, a low consideration is given to the
users CQI. Because more time is given to users with better signal quality, cell throughput is improved over
ROUND_ROBIN. However, users with worse quality will not be scheduled as often and as such will need the
resource for a longer period of time.
4=PROPORTIONAL_FAIR_HIGH. In addition to the Round Robin method, a high consideration is given to the
users CQI. Because more time is given to users with better signal quality, cell throughput is improved over
ROUND_ROBIN, PROPORTIONAL_FAIR_LOW and PROPORTIONAL_FAIR_MEDIUM. However, users with
worse quality will not be scheduled as often and as such will need the resource for a longer period of time.
5=MAXIMUM_CQI. The users quality (CQI) is considered over how much data is waiting to be transmitted to
them. Because this option favors signal quality over everything else, cell throughput is maximized.
6=EQUAL_RATE. This option provides equal opportunity to all users on the cell regardless of signal quality or
data waiting to be transmitted. Based upon airRateTypeSelector [Cell, 1=TRANSMITTED, Integer, Fixed] , either
Transmitted (acknowledged + unacknowledged) or Acknowledged only data can be used to determine each users
rate.

5.3.8 EUL Scheduling


In the interests of getting version 3.0 of the Vol. II Field Guide published, the parameters involved in EUL
Sheduling will be defined out of context. Version 3.1 will remedy this. The following comes directly from
the CPI.
eulTargetRate [Cell, 128, 1kbit/s, Fixed]
Defines the target scheduled grant for the cell that is the EUL scheduler aims to give all users at least
eulTargetRate kbps.

eulNoReschUsers [Cell, 5, E-DCH users, Fixed]


Defines the number of simultaneous users per cell that are allowed to perform rescheduling.

eulMaxNoSchEdch [Cell, 16, E-DCH users, Fixed]


Defines the maximum number of simultaneous scheduled serving E-DCH users having a scheduled data rate
larger then zero kbps.

eulNoErgchGroups [Cell, 4, E-RGCH groups, Fixed]


Defines the number of E-RGCH groups per channelization code and cell.

eulMaxShoRate [Cell, 1472, 1kbit/s, Fixed]


Defines the maximum rate that may be allocated in the serving cell for scheduled data to an E-DCH user during a
soft(er) handover.

eulReservedHwBandwidthSchedDatNonServCell [Cell, 128, 1kbit/s, Fixed]


In soft handover, the non-serving cell shall reserve the hardware resources needed for this rate as well as nonscheduled data.

eulThermalLevelPrior [Cell, -1040, 0.1dBm, Fixed]


This parameter is the assumed mean of the noise floor including feeder and TMA contribution. It describes the
mean of the prior information distribution of the noise floor. Normally the default value should be used, but in case
for example the RX-chain is wrongly configured this parameter can be set to a different value.

eulSlidingWindowTime [Cell, 1800, seconds, Fixed]


This parameter is the length of the sliding window during which a thermal noise level is calculated.

eulMinMarginCoverage [Cell, 10, -, Fixed]


Defines the minimum margin for the interference contribution from sources other than DCH traffic and thermal
noise (interference from other cells, sources external to the WCDMA system and so on.).

eulNoiseFloorLock [Cell, 0=FALSE, -, Fixed]


If eulNoiseFloorLock [Cell, 0=FALSE, -, Fixed] is set to 0=FALSE, the noise floor is determined according to the
measurement algorithm. If set to 1=TRUE, eulNoiseFloorLock [Cell, 0=FALSE, -, Fixed] locks the noise floor
level. The noise floor level is locked to eulOptimalNoiseFloorEstimate [Cell, -1040, 0.1dBm, Fixed].

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3


Defines the maximum RoT level that is allowed to preserve coverage (includes all uplink traffic and external
interference).

eulMaxOwnUuLoad [Cell, 80, 0.1dB, Fixed]


Defines the maximum allowed power-controlled noise (includes power-controlled RoT including contributions from
all uplink traffic) in own cell.

harqTransmUlTti10Max
Defines the maximum number of HARQ transmission attempts for a MAC-e PDU.

5.3.9 Congestion Detection and Resolution


The Congestion Control algorithm has the ability to order the Admission Control algorithm to block
admission requests in order to reduce congestion. It can also Down-Switch Interactive Packet Switched
users to lower throughput Radio Access Bearers (RABs) in an effort to reduce congestion while
maintaining Retainability.
Congestion must initially be detected, then measures must be taken to resolve it. The following sections
cover the parameters used for Congestion Detection and Resolution.

5.3.9.1

Congestion Detection

Congestion is detected through Downlink power utilization and Uplink Received Total Wideband Power
(RTWP) measurements obtained through the Node B. The cell is considered Congested when either of
these criteria is met.
Downlink Congestion. When the Downlink Transmitted Carrier Power exceeds pwrAdm [Cell, 75, %, Var.] +
pwrAdmOffset [Cell, 10, %, Var.] + pwrOffset [Cell, 5, %, Fixed] of maximumTransmissionPower [Cell, 400,
0.1dBm, Var.] for a period of time greater than pwrHyst [Cell, 300, ms, Fixed] , the Downlink is considered
congested. The Congested condition is not resolved until the Downlink Transmitted Carrier Power is reduced
below pwrAdm [Cell, 75, %, Var.] + pwrAdmOffset [Cell, 10, %, Var.] of maximumTransmissionPower [Cell,
400, 0.1dBm, Var.] for a period of time greater than pwrHyst [Cell, 300, ms, Fixed].

The pwrAdm [Cell, 75, %, Var.] and pwrAdmOffset [Cell, 10, %, Var.] parameters are also used in
Admission Control.

Uplink Congestion. When the Uplink Received Total Wideband Power (RTWP) exceeds iFCong [Cell, 621,
0.1dBm, Fixed] + iFOffset [Cell, 0, 0.1dB, Fixed] for a period of time greater than iFHyst [Cell, 6000, 10ms, Fixed]
, the Uplink is considered congested. The Congested condition is not resolved until the Uplink Transmitted Carrier
Power is reduced below iFCong [Cell, 621, 0.1dBm, Fixed] + iFOffset [Cell, 0, 0.1dB, Fixed] for a period of time
greater than iFHyst [Cell, 6000, 10ms, Fixed].

Congestion Resolution

Action is taken in the form of blocking new connections (Call Establishments and Hand-ins) and by
reducing the rate of existing Interactive Packet Switched connections. If the Congestion is due to
Downlink Power Utilization, all new connections are blocked and actions are taken to resolve the
Congestion. If the Congestion is due to Uplink Received Total Wideband Power (RTWP), only Call
Establishments are blocked as hand-ins reduce Uplink Received Total Wideband Power (RTWP).
In the case of Downlink Congestion, beyond blocking Call Establishments and Hand-ins, actions are
taken to reduce the amount of downlink power used. This is done by reducing the number of Air Speech
Equivalents served by the cell until the Congestion condition is resolved. These actions are taken in the
following order.
1. Immediately after Downlink Congested is detected, releaseAseDlNg [Cell, 3, ASE, Fixed] NonGuaranteed Air Speech Equivalents (ASEs) are released in the downlink and timers tmInitialGhs
[Cell, 500, ms, Fixed] and tmInitialG [Cell, 3000, ms, Fixed] are started. As long as the congestion
situation persists, releaseAseDlNg [Cell, 3, ASE, Fixed] Non-Guaranteed Air Speech Equivalents
(ASEs) are released every tmCongActionNg [Cell, 800, ms, Fixed].
2. If Downlink Congestion persists after all the Non-Guaranteed ASEs in downlink are released and the
timer tmInitialGhs [Cell, 500, ms, Fixed] expires, releaseAseDlGhs [Cell, 0, 0.ASE, Fixed]
Guaranteed-HS Air Speech Equivalents (ASEs) are released in the downlink. As long as the
congestion situation persists, tmCongActionGhs [Cell, 300, ms, Fixed] Guaranteed-HS Air Speech
Equivalents (ASEs) are released every releaseAseDlGhs [Cell, 0, 0.ASE, Fixed].

5.3.10 Radio Connection Supervision


The Radio Connection for UEs in CELL_FACH, CELL_DCH and those using HSDPA is continuously
monitored in an effort to ensure the RNS has control of the UE. The following describes the parameters
that apply to each condition.
Synchronization in CELL_FACH. When a UE enters CELL_FACH, it also starts a timer whose maximum value
is set by cchWaitCuT [RNC, 9, 5minutes, Fixed]. While in CELL_FACH, the UE sends Cell Update message
every t305 [RNC, 3=30, minutes, Fixed] minutes. Upon receiving a Cell Update CONFIRM, the UE restarts the
cchWaitCuT [RNC, 9, 5minutes, Fixed] timer. If the cchWaitCuT [RNC, 9, 5minutes, Fixed] timer expires, the
release of the connection is triggered. The cchWaitCuT [RNC, 9, 5minutes, Fixed] timer is stopped and reset to 0
if the UE enters CELL_DCH.
Uplink Synchronization in CELL_DCH. When nOutSyncInd [Cell, 10, frames, Fixed] number of consecutive
frames are out-of-sync, a timer, rlFailureT [Cell, 10, 0.1seconds, Fixed] is started. If rlFailureT [Cell, 10,
0.1seconds, Fixed] expires, the Radio Link Set is considered out-of-sync and a Radio Link Failure is reported to
the Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC). If while the Radio Link is out-of-sync, and nInSyncInd [Cell, 3,
frames, Fixed] number of frames are in-sync, the Radio Link is considered in-sync and a Radio Link Restore is
reported to the Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC). The connection is considered lost if the last Radio Link
has been out-of-sync for dchRcLostT [RNC, 50, 0.1seconds, Fixed].
Downlink Synchronization in CELL_DCH. When n313=100 number of consecutive frames are out-of-sync, a
timer t313=3s.] is started. If t313 expires, the Radio Link is considered out-of-sync and a Radio Link Failure is
reported to the Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC). If while the Radio Link is out-of-sync, and n315=1
number of frames are in-sync, the Radio Link is considered in-sync and a Radio Link Restore is reported to the
Serving Radio Network Controller (SRNC). Note that none of the Downlink Synchronization parameters are
currently operator configurable.
HSDPA Supervision. For UEs with HSDPA capability, hsDschRcLostT [RNC, 100, 0.1seconds, Fixed] is used.
The connection is considered lost if the Radio Link containing the High Speed Downlink Shared Channel (HSDSCH) has been out-of-sync for hsDschRcLostT [RNC, 100, 0.1seconds, Fixed].

5.3.11 Downlink and Uplink Power Control


This section details the parameters used to control Uplink and Downlink power for CELL_FACH,
CELL_DCH and HSDPA.

5.3.11.1 Maximum Forward Access CHannel (FACH) Power


The Forward Access CHannel (FACH) can carry either Control Plane or User Plane data.
Control Plane. When the Forward Access CHannel (FACH) is used to support the Broadcast Control CHannel
(BCCH), Common Control CHannel (CCCH), or Dedicated Control Channel (DCCH), its maximum power is set
relative to the Primary Common Pilot CHannel power (PCPICH) using maxFach1Power [Cell, 18, 0.1dB, Fixed].
User Plane. When the Forward Access CHannel (FACH) is used to support the Dedicated Traffic Channel
(DTCH), its maximum power is set relative to the Primary Common Pilot CHannel power (PCPICH) using
maxFach2Power [Cell, 15, 0.1dB, Fixed].
Power offsets relative to the Data Field for the Transport Format Combination Indicator (TFCI) and Pilot

Fields. pOffset1Fach [Cell, 0, 0.1dB, Fixed] for the TFCI field and pOffset3Fach [Cell, 0, 0.1dB, Fixed] for the
Pilot field take over once the initial offsets have been established by pO1 [RNC, 0, 0.25dB, Fixed] and pO3 [RNC,
12, 0.25dB, Fixed].

5.3.11.2 Downlink CELL_DCH Power Settings


There are parameters associated with maintaining upper and lower limits for power per Radio Link on the
Downlink.
Minimum Downlink Transmitted Code Power. It is possible to set the maximum extent to which Power Control
can reduce the power of a Radio Link. The minimum downlink Transmitted Code Power is set relative to the
Primary Common Pilot CHannel (P-CPICH) power through minPwrRl [Cell, -150, 0.1dB, Fixed].
Maximum Downlink Transmitted Code Power. When determining the Maximum Downlink Transmitted Code
Power for a Radio Link, the maximum bit rate of the Radio Link must be considered. The following table indicates
the maximum bit rate for each Radio Link supported by AT&T.

The following parameters are used to determine the Maximum Downlink Transmitted Code Power for a
Radio Link based upon the Radio Links maximum bit rate.
Requests for a Radio Link bit rates below minimumRate [Cell, 1590, 10bps, Fixed] are allocated a maximum
Transmitted Code Power of minPwrMax [Cell, 0, 0.1dB, Fixed] relative to the Primary Common Pilot Channel
(CPICH) power.
Requests for a Radio Link bit rates between minimumRate [Cell, 1590, 10bps, Fixed] and interRate [Cell, 7760,
10bps, Fixed] are allocated a maximum Transmitted Code Power of interPwrMax [Cell, 38, 0.1dB, Fixed] relative
to the Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) power.
Requests for a Radio Link bit rates between interRate [Cell, 7760, 10bps, Fixed] and maxRate [Cell, 40690,
10bps, Fixed] are allocated a maximum Transmitted Code Power of maxPwrMax [Cell, 48, 0.1dB, Fixed] relative
to the Primary Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) power.

The initial downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH) power after Soft Handover is determined
using the following formula:
P_DL_DPDCH = primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] + (dlInitSirTarget [RNC, 41,
0.1dB, Fixed] - Ec/No_PCPICH) + cSho + 10 log(2/SF_DL_DPDCH)
Where:
P_DL_DPDCH is the initial downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH) power at handover.
primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] sets the power of the Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH)

sent in SIB 5.
dlInitSirTarget [RNC, 41, 0.1dB, Fixed] sets the required initial Signal to Interference Ratio (SIR) Target.
Ec/No_PCPICH is the ratio of Chip Energy to the Noise Power Spectral Density of the Primary Common Pilot
CHannel (P-CPICH) as measured by the UE. If this measurement is not available, ecNoPcpichDefault [RNC, 16, dB, Fixed] is used.
cSho used to offset the value of P_DL_DPDCH by a handover margin (mSHO) and a configurable parameter
initShoPowerParam [RNC, -2, 1dB, Fixed].
SF_DL_DPDCH is the Spreading Factor of the downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH).

The initial downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH) power after Hard Inter-Frequency
Handover is determined using the following formula:
P_DL_DPDCH = primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] + (dlInitSirTarget [RNC, 41,
0.1dB, Fixed] - Ec/No_PCPICH) + cNbifho [RNC, 10, 0.1dB, Fixed] + 10 log(2/SF_DL_DPDCH)
Where:
P_DL_DPDCH is the initial downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH) power at handover.
primaryCpichPower [Cell, 300, 0.1dBm, Fixed] sets the power of the Primary Common Pilot Channel (P-CPICH)
sent in SIB 5.
dlInitSirTarget [RNC, 41, 0.1dB, Fixed] sets the required initial Signal to Interference Ratio (SIR) Target.
Ec/No_PCPICH is the ratio of Chip Energy to the Noise Power Spectral Density of the Primary Common Pilot
CHannel (P-CPICH) as measured by the UE. If this measurement is not available, ecNoPcpichDefault [RNC, 16, dB, Fixed] is used.
cNbifho [RNC, 10, 0.1dB, Fixed] is used to offset the value of P_DL_DPDCH by a taking into account the InterFrequency handover margins.
SF_DL_DPDCH is the Spreading Factor of the downlink Dedicated Physical Data CHannel (DPDCH).

5.3.11.3 Downlink Power Balancing


Initial downlink power is achieved on the first Radio Link using the procedures and configurable
parameters covered in the Call Establishment section. Once additional Radio Links are added to the
Active Set, it becomes important to coordinate the downlink power from multiple serving cells. Keep in
mind, all cells in the Active Set listen to the same Transmit Power Control (TPC) commands from the UE.
Over time, it is possible for the cells serving the UE to transmit at significantly different power levels
relative to each other. This is known as downlink Power Drift. The following algorithm is used to manage
Power Drift.
dlPcMethod [RNC, 3=BALANCING, Integer, Fixed] is used in conjunction with Inner Loop Power Control
to manage Power Drift. The options are FIXED, NO_BALANCING, BALANCING and
FIXED_BALANCING.
1=FIXED. Both Power Balancing and downlink Inner Loop Power Control are disabled. The downlink power is
kept at a constant level of fixedPowerDl [RNC, 65, 0.5dB, Fixed].
2=NO_BALANCING. Downlink Inner Loop Power Control is active for any number of Radio Links in the Active
Set, but Power Balancing is not.
3=BALANCING. Power Balancing and Inner Loop Power Control are active.
4=FIXED_BALANCING. Downlink Inner Loop Power Control is active is there is only one Radio Link in the Active
Set. Once another Radio Link is added to the Active Set, Downlink Inner Power Control is deactivated and the

downlink power from each serving cell converges on the power level set by fixedRefPower [RNC, 65, 0.5dB,
Fixed].

5.3.11.4 High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) Power and Code Control
High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) utilizes the following channels. The power and code
related parameters are presented within their respective context.
High-Speed Shared Control Channel (HS-SCCH). This downlink channel carries hybrid-ARQ and the High
Speed Dedicated Shared CHannel (HS-DSCH) Transport Format and Resource Combination (TFRC) selection
information from the MAC-hs in the Node B to the scheduled UE. The numHsScchCodes [Cell, 3, codes, Fixed]
parameter denotes the number of High Speed Dedicated Shared CHannels (HS-DSCH) in the cell as well as the
number of HS users that can share a single TTI. If flexibleSchedulerOn [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] is set to
1=TRUE, the maximum and minimum power of the High Speed Shared Control CHannel (HS-SCCH) are set
through hsScchMaxCodePower [Cell, -20, 0.5dB, Fixed] and hsScchMinCodePower [Cell, -150, 0.5dB, Fixed]
relative to the Primary Common Pilot Channel (PCPICH). The dynamic power control of the High Speed Shared
Control CHannel (HS-SCCH) is based upon measurements sent from the UE, and can be offset by
qualityCheckPower [Cell, 0, 0.5dB, Fixed] if necessary.
High Speed Physical Downlink Shared CHannel (HS-PDSCH). The Transport Channel called the High Speed
Downlink Shared Channel (HS-DSCH) is mapped to one or more High Speed Physical Downlink Shared CHannels
(HS-PDSCH). The maximum power of each High Speed Physical Downlink Shared CHannel (HS-PDSCH) is set
to maximumTransmissionPower [Cell, 400, 0.1dBm, Var.] - hsPowerMargin [Cell, 2, 0.5dB, Fixed]. The
number of Spreading Factor 16 High Speed Physical Downlink Shared CHannels (HS-PDSCH) reserved for
HSDPA is controlled through numHsPdschCodes [Cell, 4, codes, Fixed]. If dynamicHsPdschCodeAdditionOn
[RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] is set to 1=TRUE, then the maximum number of Spreading Factors 16 that can be
made available for the High Speed Physical Downlink Shared CHannels (HS-PDSCH) is limited to
maxNumHsPdschCodes [Cell, 10, codes, Fixed]. If flexibleSchedulerOn [RNC, 1=TRUE, Binary, Fixed] is set
to 1=TRUE, then up to 4 users can be code multiplexed on a single 2ms TTI.
High-Speed Dedicated Physical Control CHannel (HS-DPCCH). This uplink control channel is used by the UE
to report the measured downlink channel quality and to request the retransmission of erroneous transport blocks
on the High Speed Downlink Shared Channel (HS-DSCH). The measured downlink channel quality is reported
through use of the Channel Quality Indicator (CQI). Power is controlled on the High-Speed Dedicated Physical
Control CHannel (HS-DPCCH) relative to the Dedicated Physical Control Channel (DPCCH).

5.3.11.5 Uplink Power Control


There are two options for how Uplink Outer Loop power control is done. The algorithm is chosen using
ulOuterLoopRegulator [RNC, 1=JUMP, Integer, Fixed]. Both algorithms observe BLER on the uplink
If ulOuterLoopRegulator [RNC, 1=JUMP, Integer, Fixed] is set to CONSTANT_STEP, and an erroneous block is
detected, the uplink SIR target is increased by ulSirStep [RNC, 10, 0.1dB, Fixed] until a number of consecutive
blocks are correctly received at which time the uplink SIR target is decreased by an equal step. The number of
consecutive blocks necessary to decrease the SIR target is dependant upon the BLER target.
If ulOuterLoopRegulator [RNC, 1=JUMP, Integer, Fixed] is set to JUMP, and an erroneous block is detected, the
uplink SIR target is increased by ulSirStep [RNC, 10, 0.1dB, Fixed]. When a block is correctly received, the uplink
SIR target is decreased by a fraction of ulSirStep [RNC, 10, 0.1dB, Fixed]. The fraction is based upon the BLER
target.

The BLER target for both the downlink and the upink is configurable for each RAB Type and Transport
Channel (UeRcTrCh) instance. The first table below correlates the UeRc with the RAB Type and the
UeRcTrChId with the UeRcTrCh Instance. The recommended value for each RAB combination
supported by AT&T is listed below in the second table.

6. OSS Overview
Someone new to either UTRAN in general or Ericssons implementation of UTRAN must first understand
the availability of OSS-RC related services, i.e. fault, performance and configuration management of the
Radio and Core networks. Given the proper understanding and access, the engineer can then measure
performance and optimize configuration based upon the recommendations given throughout this
document.
The proceedures outlined in this seciton are based upon Ericsson OSS-RC release R4.
Figure 1 below depicts the UTRAN with its various links including links to the OSS. User access to the
OSS is made available through a Citrix server.

Configuration Management

There are various methods by which Ericsson UTRAN configurable parameters can be viewed and
updated. This section explains the procedures that must be followed in order to obtain the necessary
network access and credentials (username and password).
Network element addition / deletion procedures are not included in this document.

6.1.1 Configuration Access Procedures


The access process varies from region to region. Each regions process is outlined below. Once
credentials are obtained, the user must install a Citrix ICA client on their local machine or laptop. The
software can be obtained by going to http://www.citrix.com. Once installed, use the Add ICA
Connection wizard to add a connection to one of your regions Citrix Servers.

6.1.2 Configuration Methods


There are three main methods used to control the configuration of the UTRAN
Export configuration data then import configuration changes through the OSS. This is the preferred method
for bulk changes. An externally prepared configuration (Bulk CM file) is transferred to the OSS then imported into
a Planned Area. When the Planned Area is activated, the RNC and/or Node B configuration are updated. The
tool used is called the WCDMA RAN Explorer and is accessed by right clicking on the OSS desktop and
selecting Configuration, WCDMA radio access network, then WCDMA RAN explorer.

Page 99 of 170
2007 AT&T

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3


Enter configuration changes via the OSS Graphical User Interface (GUI). This is the Ericsson preferred
method. First, a Planned Area is created, changes are made to it using the Graphical User Interface, then the
Planned Area is activated and the RNC and/or Node B configuration are updated, i.e. the Planned Area becomes
the Valid Area. The tool used is called the WCDMA RAN Explorer and is accessed by right clicking on the
desktop and selecting Configuration, WCDMA radio access network, then WCDMA RAN explorer.
Make configuration changes in the UTRAN via a ChangeAll script. A ChangeAll script is written using a
specific format in a text file (ChangeAll.txt). The script is then executed as a task in the Job Manager application.
ChangeAll allows the user to make global parameter changes to specific network elements.
Use EMAS (Element Manager Software). EMAS exists on each network element (Node B, RNC, RXI) and
allows the user to directly view and change the individual network elements configuration. EMAS is typically not
used to change parameters that affect multiple network elements e.g. neighbor lists. EMAS uses a web client from
either the OSS via Citrix, or from your laptop assuming you are not blocked by any firewalls.

The Ericsson OSS for UMTS does not support an operator available command line interface.

6.2

Performance Management

There are currently three options available that can be used to access performance data.
Business Objects. Business Objects is a third party application supported by Ericsson that can be used to query
the OSS performance reporting database. Business Object can be used on the OSS via a Citrix client or by using
a Business Object client installed on your laptop. See the Business Objects access procedure below for access
instructions.
Prospect. This performance reporting platform is also known as Watchmark which was purchased by Vallent.
Web browser and laptop client options are available. See the Prospect Access procedure below for access
instructions.
Tektronix Probes. Probes have been installed on every interface from end to end in the network. Statistical data
is sent to the Prospect database for KPI creation. The Tektronix Probe solution also has its own reporting
interface accessible via a Citrix client. See the Tektronix Probe Access procedure below for access instructions.

6.2.1 Performance Access Procedures


This section provides information concerning how one goes about obtaining access and credentials to the
various Performance Reporting systems.

6.2.1.1

Business Object Access

Business Objects access and credentials can be obtained at the same time you request access to the
OSS. The Business Objects client software and installation instructions are available at
http://ossweb.sc.attws.com/NWS/. A bomain.key file is required in order to access the Business Objects
server.

6.2.1.2

Prospect Access

The Prospect Performance reporting system is nationally based.


The Prospect client software and installation instructions are available at

http://nebot.wnsnet.attws.com/docs/nis/geoprobe/quickstart.htm.

6.2.2 Ericsson Counter Types


Ericsson has seven different types of counters. Each type is designated based upon how each counter is
created.
Peg Counter. A Peg Counter is simply incremented by 1 at each occurrence of a specific event. All Peg
Counters begin with pm
Gauge Counter. A Gauge Counter can be increased or decreased depending upon the activity in the system. All
Gauge Counters begin with pm
Accumulator. An Accumulator Counter is increased by the value of a sample. The result is the sum of the values
of the samples taken over the sample interval. Accumulator counters always begin with pmSum or
pmSumOfSamp
Scan Counter. A Scan Counter is incremented by 1 each time a specific condition exists when scanned. Scans
for the condition occur at regular intervals. In most cases a separate counter exists that counts the number of
scans. All Scan Counters begin with pmSamples
Probability Density Function (PDF). These types of counters result from periodically reading the value of a
quantity. The value is then used to increment a corresponding counter. The counters are arranged in bins that
represent segments of the range of possible values. All Probability Density Function counters begin with pm
Discrete Distributed Measurement (DDM). Discrete Distributed Measurements are a series of values recorded
during a reporting period. At the end of the reporting period, each discrete measurement is recorded. All Discrete
Distributed Measurements begin with pm
Calculated Statistics. A Calculated Statistic results from a calculation made in the database. The counters that
contribute to the calculated value may or may not exist by themselves. All Calculated Statistics begin with cm

Counters can also be grouped based upon where they are created.
RNC Counters
Node B Counters
RXI Counters
OSS-RC Counters. These include only Calculated Statistics.

6.2.3 Call Trace Capability


Ericsson supports three different types of call trace called UETR, CTR and GPEH. Each is briefly
described below. Each is launched from the Performance menu in the OSS Network Explorer.

2007 AT&T

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3


UETR. The User Equipment Traffic Recording capability allows for up to 16 specified UEs to be concurrently
traced on a single RNC. The individual UEs are specified by IMSI. One or more event or measurement messages
within one or more of the following protocol groups can be recorded: NBAP, RANAP, RNSAP and RRC.

Although only one UE can be traced per UETR session, up to 16 concurrent sessions can be run on a
single RNC.
CTR. Cell Traffic Recording allows for the collection of one or more NBAP, RANAP, RNSAP or RRC event or
measurement messages from the first 16 UEs that request an RRC Connection setup on the specified cell. Up to
2 CTR recordings can be run concurrently.
GPEH. The General Performance and Event Handling capability records internal node and inter-node events as
defined in a GPEH subscription profile.

6.3

Fault Management

Fault Management allows for the identification of network elements that are currently, or have recently
been in a compromised condition due to a hardware or software failure. Ericsson provides tools that
allow the user to view network elements currently in fault. A fault history is also available for each
network element.

6.3.1 Alarm Status Matrix


The Alarm Status Matrix provides a graphical overview of the fault status of network elements. The status
of the network element is indicated by its color. The Alarm List Viewer is available via the OSS by right
clicking on the desktop, then Alarm, View Alarms, Alarm Status Matrix. After running Alarm Status Matrix,
you must select a group of Managed Objects by clicking on File, then Managed Objects and selecting the
appropriate network element. The Alarm Status Matrix is typically the starting point for determining the
status of the network.

6.3.2 Alarm List Viewer


The Alarm List Viewer is available via the OSS by right clicking on the desktop, then Alarm, View Alarms,
Alarm List Viewer. Current alarms for a network element or group of network elements can be viewed by
clicking on File, then Managed Objects and selecting the appropriate network element.

6.3.3 Alarm Log Browser


Running the Alarm Log Browser starts an alarm search wizard that allows the user to input variables such
as date / time range and network element selection. It also allows for result filtering and sorting. The
result can provide a historical view of the faults of a particular network element.

7. Counter and Recording Activation


7.1

Counter Activation

In order for counter values to be placed in the OSS-RC database, they must be activated for collection.
There are limitations for the number of counters that may be activated concurrently.

RNC 750,000 counters

Node B 10,000 counters

RXI 50,000 counters

An alarm is triggered if the maximum number of counters is exceeded.

7.1.1 Table Definitions


The table below contains all of the operator available Ericsson UTRAN counters and an indication of
whether or not each should be activated. The columns are explained as follows.
Column A indicates the Managed Object (MO) to which each Counter belongs.
Column B indicates the Level for each Counter, e.g. Site, Cell, Transport, ect. Note that the Cell based
counters are gathered at the RNC due to most of them being attributed to the Best Cell in the Active Set.
Column C indicates the Counter name.
Column D indicates whether the counter should be activated or not. If the counter should be activated, the field
indicates the Scanner Name. See the Implementation section below for suggested Scanner Names.
Column E provides a reason for the counters activation, e.g. Level 1 Scorecard, Dimensioning, etc.

There is also a companion Excel spreadsheet. The Counters sheet contains all of the operator
available Ericsson UTRAN counters The Revision Notes sheet contains details concerning how and why
each counter was activated.

7.1.2 Subscription Profiles


A Data Collection Subscription Profile, also known as a Statistics Profile or a Scanner defines specific
counters activated within one or more Radio Network Controller (RNC) served by an OSS. There are two
predefined RNC based Scanners called the Primary Scanner and the Secondary Scanner and a
predefined Site based Scanner.
You may at your discretion, choose to define User Defined Scanners per OSS or per Market.

7.1.2.1

Define UD Scanners per OSS

Pro: Easier to work with, simpler to standardize.


Pro: Allows for fewer Scanners.

Page 103 of 170


2007 AT&T

Volume II Ericsson Field Guide for UTRAN P3

Con: Sites can only be added to a profile if all the selected sites have IP connectivity. This is difficult to achieve
since there almost always a site that has connection issues.

Example UD Scanner names:


National_RNC_P5MD
National_URel_P5MD
National_Site_P5MD
National_RXI_P5MD

7.1.2.2

Defining UD Scanners per Market

Pros: Easier to add new sites to a Scanner since site failures in other RNCs will only affect those Scanners.
Con: More difficult to manage.

Example UD Scanner names:


National_RNC_P5MD - keep all RNCs grouped
National_URel_P5MD - keep all URel grouped
National_RXI_P5MD - keep all RXI grouped
National_AtlaSite_P5MD
National_MargSite_P5MD
National_PrrnSite_P5MD

7.2

Recording Activation

As needed, WCDMA Measurement Result Recordings (WMRR) will be specified in this section. Only one
RES recording can be run on a given RNC at a time. As well, this recording occupies the maximum
number of measurements configurable in an RES recording.

7.2.1 Activation of RES Recording to support Scorecard Data


This recording specifies activation of a Radio Environment Statistics (RES) recording that will cause the
RNS to command UEs to send periodic Speech BLER measurements. The Tektronix Probes will collect
these measurements for use in the Scorecard.
Activation of this recording will cause a command to be sent to 50% of the Speech calls established in
each RNC. These UEs will then report UL and DL Speech BLER for Speech Only, R99 MultiRAB and HS
MultiRAB calls.

Recording Name: RES test for Tek Probes 50% of UEs

Start date 2007-01-17 (todays date)

Repeat: Daily 365 times

Hours 03:20 - 23:35

Cell Set: Click Select Cells, click the target RNC, then click Copy RNCs

Measurements:

Service 1 = Speech DL BLER

Service 2 = Speech UL BLER

Service 3 = Speech + Interactive DL BLER

Service 4 = Speech + Interactive UL BLER

Service 5 = Speech + InteractiveHS DL BLER

Service 6 = Speech + InteractiveHS UL BLER

Click Sample and Fraction Settings

9. Parameter Reference
The following tables provide parameter ranges and default values involved in getting the UE into Idle Mode, Establishing a Call and Maintaining
Mobility and Connectivity. They are listed in the same order they were presented. The Level column indicates the network element that owns
the parameter. The class column indicates if the parameter is set based on Policy (must be set this way), Rule (must be set this way with
exceptions), Fixed (recommended to be set this way) and Variable (set at your discretion).
