UE Radio Access Capabilities.

1.2.2

Relative Grant Channel (E-RGCH) and Hybrid ARQ Indicator


Channel (E-HICH)
The E-DCH Relative Grant Channel (E-RGCH) is a dedicated to downlink physical
channel carrying relative grants for the uplink E-DPCH. The relative grant is a ternary
value which has three alternatives in Serving Radio Link Set:

UP
HOLD
DOWN

The E-DCH Hybrid ARQ Indication Channel (E-HICH) is also dedicated to the downlink
physical channel, which carries Hybrid ARQ acknowledgement indicator, which has two
alternatives:

WCDMA RAN HSUPA in BTS

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

NACK (Negative Acknowledgement)

In the WBTS7.0 BTS, there is at least one E-HICH and E-RGCH in every cell and they
always share the same common channelization code (the number of code channels
depends on the number of users in the cell and can be from one to seven). The separation of the UEs is done by the orthogonal signature sequence. The maximum number of
different sequences is 40 per channelization code, and all of them are used in WBTS7.0.
In WBTS7.0, the signature sequences of an E-RGCH/E-HICH code channel are dynamically divided between the E-HICH and E-RGCH channels, resulting that E-HICH can
have 1-39 sequences and E-RGCH 1-20 sequences per code channel. The E-RGCH
sequences are allocated in a cell so that each configured E-RGCH/E-HICH code
channel has one sequence always for all Non-Serving radio links, and maximum 19
exists for the Serving radio links. The E-HICH sequences are always allocated freely
between the Serving and Non-Serving radio links.
When the WBTS7.0 BTS has the Serving E-DCH radio link set for a 10ms TTI UE, the
relative grant and ACK/NACK indicator is transmitted to all the cells that belong to the
E-DCH radio link set. For 2ms TTI UEs the ACK/NACK indicator is transmitted to all the
cells that belong to the E-DCH radio link set. With 2ms TTI the relative grant is used only
for non-serving 2ms TTI UEs.
When the WBTS7.0 BTS has the Non-Serving E-DCH radio link set for the UE, the
ACK/NACK indicator is transmitted as above with the UE-specific sequence, but the
relative grant is transmitted through the cell-specific sequence.
The signature sequences are always allocated from the code channel that is closest to
the beginning of the code tree for optimum code channel usage. The signature
sequences are also reconfigured for code tree defragmentation purposes.

1.2.3

E-DCH Absolute Grant Channel (E-AGCH)


The E-DCH Absolute Grant Channel (E-AGCH) is a common downlink physical channel,
carrying absolute grants for the uplink E-DPCH. The difference between the absolute
and relative grant is that by using relative grant, the granted bitrate can be increased and
decreased only incrementally by the Radio Network Controller (RNC) pre-configured
steps. With absolute grant, the granted bitrate can be adjusted without predefined steps.
If 2ms TTI is configured for a cell then two E-AGCH channels are set up. One channel
is dedicated for 10ms TTI users and other channel is dedicated for 2ms TTI users.
In practice, for 10ms TTI UEs the relative grant is always used when granted bitrate is
adjusted within the predefined steps. The absolute grant channel is used when the
granted bitrate is adjusted with bigger steps, and in the WBTS7.0, it is used when the
bitrate is ramped up or down quickly.
For 2ms TTI users only absolute grant is used for scheduling serving UEs and relative
grant is used for non-serving UEs.

1.2.4

Physical channel processing


Processing of E-DPCH
The WBTS7.0 BTS receives the E-DPCCH and E-DPDCH from the cells that belong to
the E-DCH Radio Link Set and the radio signals from all the cells that are first combined
in a rake receiver.

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

WCDMA RAN HSUPA in BTS

The combined E-DPDCH signal goes trough the HARQ combining and channel
decoding functionality, and as a result, the BTS receives:

MAC-e PDU which is forwarded to De-Multiplexing functionality and


Optionally, the Scheduling info, if received, is sent to the Packet Scheduler.

The rake combined E-DPCCH signal goes through the channel decoding functionality
and as a successful result the BTS receives and/or calculates the following information:

Retransmission Sequence Number (RSN) is used in the BTS for calculating how
many times one MAC-e PDU is transmitted. RSN is used for the Hybrid-ARQ functionality.
E-TFCI, which is used in data channel multiplexing and channel coding, and is also
used by Packet Scheduler (PS).

Connection Frame Number (CFN), calculated by the BTS and it is the time when the
data was received. The CFN is transmitted to the RNC in frame protocol.
Channel Quality estimate, calculated by the BTS, and it is used in the Packet Scheduler.

Coding for the E-AGCH


The WCDMA BTS Packet Scheduler determines the timing when the absolute grants
are sent to the UE. When that happens, the WCDMA BTS Packet Scheduler initiates the
absolute grant command transmission, which contains the following information:

E-RNTI
Absolute Grant Index, which is used in L1 to determine the Absolute Value Information.
Absolute Grant Scope (for 10ms TTI users the scope used is always All HARQ processes and for 2ms TTI users the scopes used are both 'All HARQ processes' and
'per HARQ process'.)
Timing information when Absolute Grants are sent in the physical channel.

Mapping for the E-RGCH and E-HICH


E-RGCH: The Packet Scheduler (PS) determines the relative grant value to the UE.
When the relative grant value is to be transmitted, the L1 maps the Relative Grant value
to the bits by multiplying it first with 40 bit signature sequence.
E-HICH: The HARQ Entity determines when the reception of MAC-e PDU was successful or unsuccessful, and every time the decoding attempt is made, the HARQ entity
sends the ACK or NACK to the UE. The mapping of ACK/NACK value to the bits is done
in a similar way to E-RGCH.

1.2.5

Frequency Domain Equalizer


High E-DCH data rates require multi codes and small spreading factor (for example
2xSF2+2xSF4). Because of small spreading factor (called inter chip interference) the
adjacent chips of the code channel start to interfere with one another in the multipath
environment. Also the pararell code channels (namely pararell code channels of the
same user due multicode, but also code channels of the other users in the cell with small
spreading factor) start to interfere with each other (which is called cross interference).

WCDMA RAN HSUPA in BTS

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

This own signal interference (the user signal interferes with itself) cannot be tackled with
increased transmission power, as the interference power increases correspondingly and
the signal to noise ratio does not improve.
Frequency Domain Equalizer (FDE) algorithm is a linear qualization method that
cancels this kind of interference, thus enabling high datarates in a multipath environment.
The own signal interference becomes severe with datarates over 2Mbps. The BTS
receiver switches from RAKE receiver to FDE receiver when UE is sending with physcal
channel 2xSF2+2xSF4 or higher. The switch between RAKE receiver and FDE receiver
happens automatically.
The FDE algorithm does not require any interraction or support from UE. Feature is activated by BTS level commissioning parameter Frequency Domain Equalizer enabled.

1.3

HARQ Functionality for HSUPA


Incremental Redundancy (HARQ) Functionality is a key feature in the HSUPA, and in
WBTS7.0, HARQ consists of the following principles:

The HARQ entity has four or eight Stop-and-Wait (SAW) processes per UE (the
number depends of the configured TTI).
The HARQ is based on synchronous downlink ACK/NACK signalling.
The HARQ is based on synchronous retransmissions in the UL.
The number of re-transmissions is limited by the Serving Radio Network Controller
(SRNC).
The SRNC informs the BTS which combining method is used for each UE: Chase
combining or Incremental Redundancy.
HARQ supports the softer combining.
10ms and 2ms Transmission Time Intervals (TTI) are supported.

Once the HARQ Entity is configured for the UE, it starts the operation and follows the
input from the E-DPCCH control channel and the data in the E-DPDCH is processed
based on that information. No further control information from higher layer is needed.
After every decoding attempt, the HARQ entity sends ACK or NACK information in the
E-HICH to inform the UE whether decoding was successful or not.
If the decoding was successful, the HARQ forwards decoded MAC-e PDU to de-multiplexing.
If the decoding was unsuccessful, the HARQ waits for the re-transmission, or if the
maximum number of re-transmissions has been reached, the HARQ sends HARQ
Failure to the Frame Protocol which forwards that information to the RNC.

1.4

MAC-e De-multiplexing
The MAC-e De-multiplexing is part of the MAC-e protocol entity. The purpose is to demultiplex the MAC-es PDU(s) and related MAC-e header information from the MAC-e
PDU and map them to the corresponding MAC-d flow.
To enable the MAC-e de-multiplexing, the RNC provides a Data Description Indicator
(DDI) mapping information:

DN70223925
Issue 04

MAC-d flow ID, which informs to which MAC-d flow each MAC-es PDU has to be
mapped and

the size of the MAC-d PDU


Logical channel ID

By using the DDI provided by the RNC, and DDI and N from the header of the MAC-e
PDU, de-multiplexing in the BTS separates each MAC-es PDU from the MAC-e PDU,
and maps MAC-es PDU to the corresponding MAC-d flow.
If the Scheduling Information (SI) is included into the end of the MAC-e PDU, the BTS
detects it by calculating the total length of the MAC-e PDU first. Then by using the information provided by the DDI and N parameters in MAC-e PDU, the BTS detects the
leftover bits, which contain the SI and possible padding.
Standalone SI is also handled in the BTS. In that case UE the did not have any data to
be transmitted, or BTS has not allocated the grants yet.
Both MAC-e PDU alternatives are presented in figureMAC-e PDU structures.

When the BTS has done the de-multiplexing, the MAC-es PDUs, DDI and N are sent to
the Frame Protocol.
Scheduling Info (SI), if received, is sent to the Packet Scheduler.
Note that the WBTS 7.0 supports six MAC-d flow per UE, and MAC-e PDU contains
maximum 9 MAC-es PDUs.
Note that the MAC-d flow contains data to one RAB.

WCDMA RAN HSUPA in BTS

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

In the first case, the FP receives the following information from the de-multiplexer, and
FP includes them in the E-DCH UL Data Frame when sending the MAC-es PDUs to the
RNC:

the number of HARQ Retransmissions used for successful decoding of the payload
the number of MAC-es PDUs to be included into the UL E-DCH Data Frame
DDI and N
the MAC-es PDUs

In the second case, when HARQ Entity detects that the maximum number of retransmissions is exceeded for the MAC-e PDU, the HARQ Entity transmits HARQ Failure
Indication to the Frame Protocol entity which forwards that to the RNC.
In the third case, FP includes the Frame Sequence Number (FSN) and Connection
Frame Number (CFN) in every E-DCH UL Data Frame. They are used by the RNC,
which sends TNL Congestion Indication when detects that the Iub interface becomes
congested, or the congestion is over. For more information about HSUPA Congestion
Control, see Section HSUPA Congestion Control.
In fourth case, the OUTER LOOP POWER CONTROL control frame for closed loop
power control algorithm is delivered through E-DCH FP if the user does not have DCH
FP configured. This is the case with F-DPCH when DCH transport channels are not
used at all.
The WBTS7.0 supports six MAC-d flows per UE so it means that the UE can have
maximum of six MAC-d flows in the Iub Interface. Each MAC-d flow is carried with own
transport bearer to RNC, therefore UE have maximum of six Frame protocol entities in
the BTS.

1.6

Node B Packet Scheduler


The WBTS7.0 supports the Node B Controlled Scheduling. WBTS 7.0 has one Node B
Packet Scheduler if the BTS has one Local Cell Group (LCG). If two or more LCGs are
configured in the BTS, the BTS has independent Node B Packet Schedulers for each
LCG.
In special case that two frequency layers are configured into LCG, then LCG contains
two independent packet schedulers, that is, one for each frequency layer.
In the rest of the section, it is assumed that the BTS has one LCG. For more information
on LCG, see Section HSUPA DSP Resource Management.
Node B Packet Scheduler optimises the E-DCH base band processing resources and
radio usage in all the cells in the BTS. The optimization is done during the scheduling
cycle, which is affected by the:

RNC parameters, which set the bases and limits for the E-DCH operation
available E-DCH Radio resources
scheduling requests from the UE
bitrate the UE is using
available Iub Transport Network resources

Packet Scheduler also considers the occasions when the UE does not listen to Serving
Grant commands because of Continuous Packet Connectivity subfeature Discontinuous
DL Reception.

The output of the scheduling is the Serving Grant, which is transmitted for the UEs, and
then the next scheduling period and cycle starts. Scheduling is therefore a continuous
process.
WBTS7.0 Packet Scheduling also takes into account the UEs for which BTS is a Nonserving Node B.

The Packet Scheduler algorithm, the RNC parameters, the Frame Protocol Congestion

1.6.1

Packet Scheduling algorithm


The Packet Scheduling algorithm is Hybrid power and throughput-based.
Hybrid means that the algorithm is power-based in normal operation. The algorithm
changes to throughput-based when the interference in radio interface changes suddenly. The throughput-based algorithm guarantees that the UEs have a controlled
bitrate, even the cell interference is over the Maximum Target Received Total Wideband
Power For more information see(3GPP TS 25.433 UTRAN Iub interface NBAP).
The algorithm utilises Quality of Service parameters, trying to fulfil the Quality of Service
requirements. Users without the Quality of Service parameters are treated with the best
effort manner. The best effort algorithm is also fair as the allocated bit rate is balanced
between the UEs (but not guaranteed to be equally shared).
The Packet Scheduling algorithm is optimized to cope with the following specific situations:
- Low utilization UEs When the UE is uses lower bitrate than the allocated bitrate, the
allocated bitrate is reduced.
- The UE using too high allocation
bitrate is reduced.

- Fast ramp-up

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

When the UE amount in the cell is low, the bitrate is increased faster
compared to situations when the UE amount in the cell is high.

Both 10ms TTI and 2ms TTI users are handled equally in Packet Scheduler.
Quality of Service Scheduling

- Non Real time data scheduling


Non Real time classes, interactive and background are implemented with Scheduled
transmission. Following Node-B Application Part (NBAP) Quality of Service (QoS)
parameters are utilised for scheduled transmission:

MAC-es Guaranteed Bit Rate (GBR)


Scheduling Priority Indicator (SPI)
E-DCH HARQ Power Offset FDD (HARQ PO)

In addition to NBAP parameters, SPI specific weight parameters are defined in commissioning. For more information, see Section Commissioning parameters.
Packet Scheduler utilizes GBR and SPI parameters. As the GBR parameter is used for
NRT data, it is not really guaranteed, but it is considered as Nominal Bitrate (NBR).
Packet Scheduler allocates NBR to users in SPI order. If NBR cannot be fulfilled for
some user because of high cell interference, then PS reduces the allocation from lower
SPI user to free resources.
If Packet Scheduler is able to allocate NBR for each user, then PS uses weight parameters to share excess capacity in the best effort manner.
PS calculates weighted bitrate for each user by scaling the current bitrate and allocating
more bitrates to one having smallest bitrate.
PS selects the correct weight parameter based on user SPI and the scaling is done
according to following algorithm:
Scaled bitrate = (current bitrate NBR) / weight
HARQ power offset is not used in scheduling as such. The UE applies it to transmission
in order to increase transmission power and decrease number of retransmissions for
defined logical channel (lower BLER).
Best effort users (users without QoS parameters) are treated as QoS users with lowest
priority and no NBR.
- Real Time data scheduling
Real time classes, streaming and conversational, are implemented with Non-Scheduled
transmission. For the scheduling, BTS cannot do anything, its under control of the RNC.
The UE is allowed to send Non-Scheduled Transmission (NST) at any time.

The top level is the BTS RM, which controls all the resources in the BTS, including the
DSP resource pool and resource sharing between the DCH and E-DCH. The mechanism how resource sharing is achieved is described in Section Dynamically allocated

Regarding HSUPA, WBTS7.0 has the following types of resources, which are also

When the commissioned resource is to be reserved, the LCG has to be selected first
with the LCG associated with HSUPA parameter.
Once the LCG is selected, the commissioned resource allocation is configured by using
the following parameters:

Minimum baseband decoding capability [Mbps]


Minimum number of HSUPA UE per BTS*

(*The parameter name is per BTS. This is the case when one LCG is installed in the
BTS. When two or more LCGs are installed, the Minimum number of HSUPA UE is configured per LCG.)
The commissioned resource is reserved in the LCG immediately after the configuration.
HSUPA commissioned resource in the Ultrasite WCDMA BTS:
In the Ultrasite WCDMA BTS (Ultrasite), one cluster is one WCDMA Signal Processor
version C (WSPC) unit.

HSUPA commissioned resource in the Flexi WCDMA BTS:
In the Flexi WCDMA BTS (FlexiBTS), one cluster is one Flexi submodule.
With Release 1 module the cluster includes three resource steps and with Release 2
module the cluster includes four resource steps. Resource steps are described in

1.7.2

Dynamically allocated resource


The WBTS7.0 target for the DSP Resource Management is that all free resources are
utilized to maximize the E-DCH throughput. This is achieved by the principle that the
DCH and E-DCH resources share the same DSP resource pool. How this resource pool
is divided is explained more in detail later in this chapter. The main principle is that the
DCH has a higher priority than Non Real Time E-DCH and when the resources are left
from the DCH, resources are given to the E-DCH. Priority is not so clear between DCH
and Real Time E-DCH. This is explained in detail in later chapters. The result is that the
resource pool usage remains high, and the uplink cell throughput is maximised.

dynamically allocated for the E-DCH. For more information on commissioned resource,

Dynamic resource allocation for the E-DCH

The PS knows whether the UEs are happy or unhappy, and based on that information,
the PS informs the E-DCH RM whether more E-DCH resources are needed, or whether
the E-DCH resources can be released. The information transfer between Packet Scheduler and E-DCH Resource Manager (RM) can be done every scheduling period, if there
is a need, and information transfer is per UE.
The E-DCH RM requests additional resources from the BTS RM. The requests are triggered based on the resource need (requests received from the Packet Scheduler) and
the amount of currently allocated resources. When the E-DCH RM has resources, it
controls how these resources are allocated to different E-DCH users.
The BTS RM requests resources back from the E-DCH RM when additional DCH
channels are created. This reduces the resources for the E-DCH channels and the EDCH bitrate is reduced accordingly. The existing E-DCH channels always remain in the
BTS and the minimum bitrate can be reduced down to 32kbps (with the exception of
Real Time E-DCH which is not affected). When all the E-DCH channels have 32kbps
(with the exception of Real Time E-DCH which is not reduced), the bitrate is not reduced
further. If the DCH channels uses the remaining resource at that moment, additional
DCH channels cannot be established.

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

Also, the additional E-DCH channel establishment cannot be done if all the existing EDCH channels have the minimum resource reservation (for Non Real Time E-DCH
channels it is 32 kbps and for Real Time E-DCH channels it depends on RNC parameters), and the remaining resource is reserved for the DCH channels.

1.7.3

E-DCH Resource sharing between different E-DCH users


When BTS RM has granted the resources for the E-DCH RM, the E-DCH RM shares
that resource between all the E-DCH users. The sharing is done by giving the Real Time
users the resources needed given by the QoS parameters. The remaining resources are
shared by the Non Real Time users based on PS request.
For the Non Real Time classes the BTS guarantees only minimum HW reservation
(32kbps).
For Real Time classes the BTS makes the HW allocation for Maximum Set of EDPDCHs to guarantee the sufficient Real Time resources for the user.
E-DCH RM balances the load between clusters in the E-DCH resource pool. E-DCH RM
monitors the load in clusters and E-DCH RM can reorganize the resources between the
clusters to optimize the resource utilization. This way the resource utilization remains
high even if the resource situation changes (resource pool size increases or decreases
or user bitrates increase or decrease).
Both 10ms TTI and 2ms TTI users are handled equally in E-DCH RM.
Serving UEs are prioritized over non-serving UEs, so in case of HW resource congestion, then non-serving UEs might not have enough resources to receive the current
transmission (in case the bitrate is considreable).

1.8

HSUPA IC Receiver
WCDMA (HSUPA) is an interference limited system, and therefore the received power
level has a direct impact on the performance of the system. A large target RTWP setting
is needed to achieve good enough signal quality to enable large peak data rates.
However, the increased received power means also more interference for the other UEs
and that causes them to increase their power.
With the HSUPA IC Receiver, it is possible to cancel the interference caused by the 2ms
TTI users, hence the required power of the AMR users is reduced. With a fixed number
of AMR UEs, the 2ms TTI HSUPA throughput can be increased as the interference seen
by the AMR users is reduced.
Interference cancelation is a non-linear detection method within the more general class
of multiuser detection algorithms are:
1. PIC - users are detected in parallel and subtracted as a sum from the received
signal.
2. SIC - users are detected and subtracted from the received signal serially.
3. USIC - user groups are detected in parallel and then sequentially subtracted from
the received signal.

1.8.1

HSUPA IC Receiver Concept


The NRT users, mapped on the E-DCH with 2ms TTI, are canceled. This will allow maximizing of the data rate of these users, even when a significant number of AMR users

(DCH users) are in the system. If no cancellation is applied, the priority of the RT AMR
users would prevent the high data rates of the NRT users.
Figure HSUPA IC Receiver Concept shows the HSUPA IC Receiver feature in BTS.
USIC algorithm is used for cancellation od 2ms TTI E-DCH users (IC users). After cancellation of the IC users, all the other users (non-IC users) are demodulated on the
residual signal. Therefore, the non-IC users see only the reduced interference without
the contribution from the IC users.

HSUPA IC Receiver Feature Characteristics

HSUPA IC Receiver Concept

BTS Manager allows the operator to commission the HSUPA IC Receiver feature to
BTS using commissioning parameter picPool.
BTS supports maximum 4 PIC pools.
A PIC pool is a collection of cells, in which IC is configured. A PIC pool supports up
to 6 cells, which are candidates for IC, with each cell having up to 2 antennas.
Dedicated resource block is allocated for a PIC pool - see BTS Baseband in Dimensioning WCDMA RAN: Flexi BTS Baseband and Dimensioning WCDMA RAN: Ultra
BTS baseband documents.
BTS Manager sends the PIC Pool Configuration to BTS.
All cells mapped to a PIC pool must be a part of the same LCG.
There are 3 PIC states for each cell in a PIC poo: active, deactivated and automatic. The PIC states of the cells in a PIC pool are configured by RNC. Initially all
the cells in a PIC pool are in deactivated state.
BTS applies IC to a cell with PIC state active.
BTS does not apply IC to a cell with PIC state deactivated.
BTS applies IC to a cell with PIC state automatic depending on the number of cells
with PIC state active in the same PIC pool.
BTS supports maximum 3 cells with IC per PIC pool, with each cell having up to 2
antennas.

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

BTS supports HSUPA IC with activated FDE in the same cell at the same time.

HARQ Process ID selection


With 2ms TTI it is possible that only some of eight HARQ processes are transmitting
data. The HARQ processes for Scheduled Transmissions are controlled by Absolute
Grant commands. The HARQ processes for Non-Scheduled Transmissions are
selected during RL setup and RL reconfiguration procedures.
The serving BTS selects the HARQ processes so that the transmission of different users
would be spread over time in the air interface. If the HARQ process allocation of NST is
no longer optimal (for example because of user transfers or new setups) Serving BTS
sends Radio Link Parameter Update request to RNC to trigger RL reconfiguration.
During the RL reconfiguration serving BTS re-selects the NST HARQ processes for
optimal location.

1.10

HSUPA capability reporting


The RNC uses 3GPP NBAP procedure, NBAP: AUDIT REQUEST message to perform
an audit of the configuration and status of the logical resources in the BTS. The BTS
responses by the NBAP: AUDIT RESPONSE message, which contains in the cell object
level the following information:

If BTS contains FSMC/D/E or EUBB baseband HW units (and HSUPA is not forced
to WSPC/FSMB HW by commissioning parameters) then BTS supports minimum
spreading factor of 2xSF2+2xSF4. Otherwise the BTS supports minimum spreading
factor 2xSF2.
If BTS contains FSMC/D/E or EUBB baseband HW units (and HSUPA is not forced
to WSPC/FSMB HW by commissioning parameters) then BTS supports both 2ms
TTI and 10ms TTI. Otherwise the BTS supports 10ms TTI.
the BTS supports chase and Incremental Redundancy (IR) combining
if BTS contains FSMC/D/E or EUBB baseband HW units (and HSUPA is not forced

1.11.2

Cell-specific parameters used by the Packet Scheduler

UE specific information
The E-DCH is set up for a user with the NBAP: Radio Link Setup or Radio Link Preparation/Commit procedures. The Radio Link Setup is used when the RNC executes the
Inter-Node B E-DCH Serving cell change or the RNC establishes the first radio link for
the UE. The Radio Link Preparation/Commit procedures are used when the E-DCH is
setup and the user already have an existing Radio Link in the BTS.
The deletion of the E-DCH is done by the Radio Link Preparation/Commit procedures or
when the last radio link is deleted from the user by using the Radio Link Deletion procedure.
The Packet Scheduler takes into account the parameters transmitted from the RNC, as
described in table UE specific parameters used by the Packet Scheduler.

1.12.1

Multi NRT RABs


BTS supports up to three Non Real time Radio Bearers simultaneously. Each RAB is
carried through own MAC-d flows and they can have different QoS parameters.
Together with CS voice and streaming service features and SRB on HSUPA, this means
maximum of six MAC-d flows (in RU20 On Top) simultaneously.

1.13

Other transport channels with HSUPA user


When the HSUPA (E-DCH) is configured for the user in UL, the HSDPA (HS-DSCH) is
always in the DL. The E-DCH channel can also be changed to DCH channel and the
other way round. The triggers for the channel switch are in the RNC.
The DCH is mainly used for the Signalling Radio Bearers (SRB) to enable the smooth
mobility between the HSUPA capable BTS and the non-HSUPA capable BTSs.

WCDMA RAN HSUPA in BTS

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

If user is configured to 2ms TTI then SRB is mapped to E-DCH transport channel to
allow high bitrates (2xSF2+2xSF4 physical data channel does not leave code channels
for DPDCH).
If UE and cells support Fractional DPCH (F-DPCH) SRB is mapped to E-DCH transport
channel to enable the F-DPCH usage.
The channel element consumption of the related DCH channels are not included in the
HSPA numbers, see the Dimensioning WCDMA RAN: Flexi BTS Baseband and Dimensioning WCDMA RAN: Ultra BTS baseband documents..
Both DCH and E-DCH can be used for the AMR call. The E-DCH usage is supported by
feature CS voice over HSPA with 2ms and 10ms TTI in WBTS6.0 On Top release. DCH
is supported simultaneously with the HSUPA 10ms TTI, and that is already in the
WBTS4.0.

1.14

HSUPA mobility
In the WBTS7.0 release, Serving E-DCH Radio Link Change is supported and the
Serving E-DCH Radio Link is the same as the Serving HS-DSCH Radio Link.
Serving E-DCH Radio Link Change can be either Intra-BTS (between cells inside the
same BTS) or Inter-BTS (between different BTSs).
Softer and Soft handover for E-DPCH is supported containing maximum three radio
links in an E-DCH Radio Link Set (RLS).

1.15

Power control for the HSUPA channels


E-DCH
Outer Loop Power Control For the Outer Loop Power Control purposes, BTS sends
information to the RNC on that how many times the UE transmitted the
MAC-e PDU before it was successfully decoded in the BTS. Or, if the
maximum number of retransmissions is reached, the BTS transmits
HARQ Failure.
Based on the number of retransmissions and HARQ Failure information, the RNC can transmit an additional Signal-to-interface Ration
(SIR) Target to the BTS in the FP: OUTER LOOP POWER CONTROL
control frame.
E-RGCH, E-AGCH and E-HICH
E-RGCH, E-HICH and E-AGCH each have own power offsets which are configured by
the RNC for each cell. The offsets are used on top of the maximum downlink transmission power, configured by RNC for each user.
HSUPA downlink channel power usage can be monitored for example using PM
counters M5000C293 - M5000C298 and M5000C145 - M5000C150.

1.16

HSUPA Congestion Control


When the BTS sends an E-DCH Frame Protocol frame to the RNC, every frame includes
two parameters for the congestion control purposes:

27

HSUPA in WBTS7.0

WCDMA RAN HSUPA in BTS

the Frame Sequence Number (FSN)

By using the CFN and FSN parameters, the RNC detects if the frames are lost in the Iub
interface, and the build-up of relative delay that the frame protocol frame transmission
took in the Iub interface.
When the RNC detects the congestion, it starts the controlling actions by sending the
Frame Protocol FP: TNL CONGESTION INDICATION control frame to the BTS. The
Congestion Status parameter can be set to the following values:

TNL Congestion detected by delay build-up


TNL Congestion detected by frame loss

When the BTS receives the FP: TNL Congestion Indication control frame, the PS selects
the user(s) to downgrade and starts to downgrade the bitrate by sending the relative
grant DOWN to the concerned UE. PS utilises mainly the same algorithm for selecting
the users to congestion downgrade as it uses for cell power overload downgrades. If
QoS parameters are defined they are automatically taken into account. Because of this
selection method it is likely that congestion downgrade actions can affect also other
users in the cell than the one that received the Congestion Indication from RNC. It is also
possible that the user which got the Congestion Indication is not affected at all (note difference to RAS06 algorithm, where QoS was not in place yet).
According to QoS PS algorithm the users are sorted according to the weighted bitrate
and that defines the order in which the downgrade actions are done. Actions start from
the one having the highest weighted bitrate and continue towards the one having the
lowest weighted bitrate. For information of how weighted bitrate is defined see chapter
Quality of Service Scheduling.
During congestion actions the user bitrates are gradually downgraded all the way to the
NBR level (if the congestion situation continues long enough that NBR is reached).
When the RNC detects that the congestion is not anymore in the Iub, the RNC sends a
No TNL congestion indication, and when it is received, the PS goes gradually into
normal operation.

1.17

Measurements
L1 measurements
Received Total Wideband Power (RTWP) is a common measurement and is measured
from all the cells supporting E-DCH. The measurement values are used in WCDMA BTS
Packet Scheduler and it is also transmitted to the RNC.
Transmitted carrier power of all codes is not used for HS-PDSCH, HS-SCCH, E-AGCH,
E-RGCH or E-HICH transmission . The measurement is a common measurement and
the value is transmitted to the RNC.
For more information on RTWP, see 3GPP TS 25.215: Physical Layer Measurements
(FDD).
For more information on common measurement, see 3GPP TS 25.433.
MAC-e measurements
the E-DCH provided bitrate measurement is a common measurement which is done as
defined in the standard 3GPP TS 25.321 Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol specification.

Parameters
This chapter lists the commissioning parameters in WBTS7.0 release for operating
HSUPA in WCDMA BTS.
If several LCGs are configured into BTS then the parameters are defined per LCG.
In special case that two frequency layers are configured into LCG, then parameters are
defined per frequency layer.

Scheduling Weight for


SPI class [0-15]

Range

These parameters are defined per BTS and they control the filtering of counters
M5000C266 and M5000C267.
Target for filtering is to filter out power limited situation and small data transmissions (so
small that UnHappy criterias are not met, for example ping data). Those would add too
much Happy conditions to the counter.
