Overview of FACCH Call Set-up

BSC3015: FACCH Call Set-up

1 Overview of FACCH Call Set-up


When a MS requests a dedicated resource by sending a random access, the BSC tries to allocate an SDCCH for the MS. If there are no SDCCHs available at that moment, the BSC tries to allocate a TCH instead of rejecting the resource request. If there are free TCHs, FACCH Call Set-up is used to assign the MS from the CCCH to the TCH - instead of the SDCCH - with the immediate assignment procedure. The FACCH is used for call set-up signalling instead of the SDCCH. The TCH is used for signalling and thus no assignment procedure is needed in the radio interface. Instead, only the mode modify procedure is required to change the channel mode from signalling to, for example, speech or data. Note that circuit pool change is not supported with FACCH call setup.

Procedures of FACCH Call Set-up

2 Procedures of FACCH Call Set-up


The procedures of FACCH Call Set-up are described in more detail in the following sections. The causes presented in the procedures are BSSMAP causes. For more information on the corresponding DX causes, see Call Related DX Causes in BSC.

2.1

Channel required procedure


The channel required procedure offers the MS the means to start the establishment of a mobile originating call or to answer the PAGING REQUEST message. The channel required procedure is presented in the following figure.
MS BTS BSC MSC

a) CHANNEL REQUEST b) CHANNEL REQUIRED

Figure 1

Channel required procedure

CHANNEL REQUEST message The MS requests for a dedicated signalling channel SDCCH by sending the CHANNEL REQUEST message (a) to the BTS on the RACH. The message is sent in random mode and consists of two different information elements that are coded as follows:
Bit 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Octet 1 ESTABLISHMENT CAUSE RANDOM REFERENCE

Figure 2

CHANNEL REQUEST message, only one octet long

The establishment cause information field indicates the reason for requesting the establishment of a connection. This field has a variable length (from 3 bits up to 6 bits). The random reference is an unformatted field with variable length (from 5 bits down to 2 bits). The establishment cause information field length is 3 when the MS is GSM phase 1 level or when the MS is GSM phase 2 level and the new establishment causes support (NECI) parameter is set to OFF. The following establishment causes are supported (the random reference field is marked with xs):
MESSAGE 8 ... 1 000xxxxx 100xxxxx 101xxxxx Meaning of establishment cause Location updating (SDCCH) Answer to paging (SDCCH, TCH/H or TCH/F) Emergency call

Table 2

NECI parameter is set to ON

Note that HR data call is not supported in the BSC. FR is the preferred rate for data call request and re-establishment call request. If a call request based on the establishment cause can be either data or speech, counter 001124 TCH FACCH CALL CH RATE NOT DEF is incremented and FR is set as the preferred rate. The network uses the random reference and the MS access slot number to identify and to address the MS. The MS starts the GSM timer T3120 and waits for its access acceptance, which is the IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT message on the AGCH. If the MS is not granted access within the time limit defined by the GSM timer T3120, the MS makes a second attempt and sends another CHANNEL REQUEST message with a new random reference on the next time slot. A new value of the GSM timer T3120 is computed and used. The MS repeats this procedure either until it is granted access or until the number of repetitions reaches the maximum.

CHANNEL REQUIRED message After receiving the CHANNEL REQUIRED message (b) from the BTS, the BSC starts to allocate a relevant channel. The CHANNEL REQUIRED message includes the following data: message discriminator: common channel management message type: channel required channel number: uplink CCCH (RACH) request reference: establishment cause, random reference received in the channel request and the frame number on which it was received access delay: delay of the access burst as measured by the BTS.

2.2

Channel reservation procedure


After receiving the CHANNEL REQUIRED message, the BSC begins to search for an SDCCH. If there are no SDCCHs available, the BSC starts to search for a TCH. If there is a TCH available in the cell from which the original access was granted, the BSC reserves it and the immediate assignment procedure starts. If all the SDCCHs and TCHs are reserved in the cell in question, the BSC sends an IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT REJECT message to the MS. The BSC can allocate TCHs or SDCCHs as follows: TCH/F or TCH/H due to the CHANNEL REQUIRED message, if there are no SDCCHs available and FACCH Call Set-up is allowed SDCCH due to the CHANNEL REQUIRED message, if there are SDCCHs available and FACCH Call Set-up is allowed SDCCH due to the CHANNEL REQUIRED message, if FACCH Call Set-up is not allowed.

The number of TCHs and SDCCHs depends on the radio configuration.

2.3

Channel activation procedure


After a new TCH has been successfully reserved, the BSC activates the channel by sending the CHANNEL ACTIVATION message to the BTS. The GSM timer T9103 supervises the channel activation procedure. The channel mode for the TCH channel is signalling. The channel activation procedure is presented in the following figure.
MS BTS BSC a) CHANNEL ACTIVATION b) CHANNEL ACTIVATION ACK MSC

Procedures of FACCH Call Set-up

BSC3015: FACCH Call Set-up

CHANNEL ACTIVATION message The BSC sends the CHANNEL ACTIVATION message (a) to the BTS in order to activate the new TCH channel. The CHANNEL ACTIVATION message includes the following data: message discriminator: dedicated channel management message type: channel activation channel number activation type channel mode: DTX control and channel type (signalling, TCH/F or TCH/H, no resources required) BS power: maximum BS power level authorised in the cell (optional) MS power: maximum MS power level authorised in the cell (optional) timing advance to be used by the MS in subsequent communications (optional) SACCH information (optional) ACCH control information (optional).

The SACCH information is used in a dual band cell or when IMSI Based Handover is enabled in the BSC. For more information, see Dual Band Network Operation or IMSIBased Handover. ACCH control information indicates whether the MS is capable of ACCH repetition if Robust AMR Signalling is activated. For more information, see Robust AMR Signalling. The other optional elements are always present. CHANNEL ACTIVATION ACKNOWLEDGE message The BTS acknowledges a successful activation with the CHANNEL ACTIVATION ACKNOWLEDGE message (b). The BTS starts the transmission and reception on the associated SACCH, using the power levels and the timing advance received in the CHANNEL ACTIVATION message. Correspondingly, the BTS acknowledges a failure with the CHANNEL ACTIVATION NACK message. The possible causes for a failure are listed below. For more information, see 3GPP TS 48.058. radio resource not available radio channel already activated or allocated protocol error and subclause, such as mandatory information error O&M intervention when the channel cannot be used for O&M reasons encryption algorithm not implemented equipment failure service or option not available not implemented unspecified mandatory IE error general IE error.

If the BSC does not receive the CHANNEL ACTIVATION ACKNOWLEDGE or CHANNEL ACTIVATION NACK message within the time limit of the GSM timer T9103, or if it receives the CHANNEL ACTIVATION NACK message, it releases the allocated channel and sends an IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT REJECT message to the MS.

2.4

Immediate assignment procedure


The IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT message facilitates the assignment of the MS onto a TCH. Correspondingly, the IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT REJECT message facilitates the refusal of the access: if the TCH reservation or activation fails, the BSC sends the IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT REJECT message to the MS. The GSM timer T3101 supervises the immediate assignment procedure. The figure below shows the immediate assignment procedure.
MS BTS BSC MSC

a) IMMEDIATE ASSIGN COMMAND b) IMMEDIATE ASSIGN SABM c) d) ESTABLISH INDICATION e) UA

Figure 4

Immediate assignment procedure

IMMEDIATE ASSIGN COMMAND message After a successful TCH activation, the BSC sends the IMMEDIATE ASSIGN COMMAND message (a) to the BTS. This message contains the IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT message, which the BTS sends to the MS. The IMMEDIATE ASSIGN COMMAND message includes the following data: message header message type channel number immediate assignment information.

The immediate assignment information contains the complete IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT message: message header page mode: normal paging channel description of the TCH allocated, the associated SACCH and frequency or hopping sequence request reference as sent by the MS in the channel request initial timing advance mobile allocation if frequency hopping is used rest octet only for phase 2.

IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT message, SABM, UA frame After receiving the IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT message, the MS tunes to the assigned TCH and starts to establish the signalling link across the network. The MS sends the layer 2 SABM (Set Asynchronous Balanced Mode) to the BTS on the TCH. The SABM (c) contains a layer 3 service request message. The MS specifies to the network the required service type with the service request message.

The service request message contains one of the following: 1. CM SERVICE REQUEST - for mobile originating calls and for a mobile originating SMS (Short Message Service) - contains: header CM service types ciphering key sequence number MS classmark 2 mobile identity. 2. PAGING RESPONSE contains: header ciphering key sequence number MS classmark 2 mobile identity. 3. CM RE-ESTABLISHMENT REQUEST 4. Emergency setup. The BTS acknowledges the SABM by sending the UA frame (e) to the MS. The MS expects this acknowledgement within time T; otherwise it acts as described in 3GPP TS 44.018. ESTABLISH INDICATION message The BTS forwards the MS service request to the BSC in the ESTABLISH INDICATION message (d), which includes the following data: message discriminator: radio link layer management message type: establishment indication channel number: TCH + SACCH link identifier: main signalling channel TCH L3 Information - complete L3 service request as received from the MS.

Having received the ESTABLISH INDICATION message, the BSC starts the power control and handover algorithm.

2.5

Mode modify procedure


The mode modify procedure changes the channel mode from signalling to speech or data. The procedure is presented in the figure below.

Mode modify procedure

ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message The MSC sends an ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message (a) to the BSC for the assignment of channels on the A interface and the radio interface. The BSC expects to receive the following fields in the ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message: message type channel type: speech, TCH/F or TCH/H, speech algorithm L3 header information priority (optional) circuit identity code indicating the channel to be used on the A interface downlink DTX flag (optional) radio channel identity (optional) interference band to be used (optional).

The BSS responds to the ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message by sending the MSC the ASSIGNMENT COMPLETE or ASSIGNMENT FAILURE message. On receiving an ASSIGNMENT FAILURE message, the MSC can either issue a CLEAR COMMAND or retry. The MSC runs a supervisory timer for the assignment procedure: if the MSC fails to receive a response from the BSS within the defined time limit, it clears the call with a CLEAR COMMAND message. The BSS releases the MS connection with the channel release procedure. If the BSC identifies any of the following situations on analysing the ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message, it rejects the request by sending the ASSIGNMENT FAILURE message to the MSC, without taking any action towards the BTS:

If the BSC is not able to use the A channel indicated in the CIC (Circuit Identification Code) because it is used for another call, the BSC rejects the request with the cause requested terrestrial circuit already allocated. If the BSC is not able to use the A channel indicated in the CIC because the channel has been marked as faulty, the BSC rejects the request with the cause requested terrestrial resource unavailable. If the CIC is blocked, the BSC rejects the request with the cause requested terrestrial resource unavailable. The BSC also sends a BLOCK message to the MSC. For more information on reasons which can cause a circuit to be blocked by the BSC, see 3GPP TS 48.008. If there is no circuit pool on the A interface which is able to support the requested TCH type, the BSC rejects the request with the cause requested transcoding/rate adaption not available. If there is a circuit pool on the A interface which is able to support the requested TCH type but the pool implied by the CIC is totally contradictory with the TCH type requirement, the BSC rejects the request with the cause circuit pool mismatch. If the circuit pool implied by the CIC is at least partially compliant with the requested TCH type, changing the circuit pool may be required. Reasons for the change include the actual traffic channel resource situation of the cell and the attempt to allocate the resources in the most optimal way. In this case the BSC rejects the request with the cause switch circuit pool. If the requested speech coder versions are not supported, the BSC rejects the request with the cause requested speech version unavailable. If the radio interface data rate requirement is totally contradictory with the requested TCH rate, the BSC rejects the request with the cause invalid message contents.

If the MSC receives an ASSIGNMENT FAILURE message with a cause indicating a CIC problem, the MSC may choose to send another ASSIGNMENT REQUEST for the same call using a different circuit. MODE MODIFY message If the ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message is valid, the BSC proceeds to perform the mode modify procedure. The BSC first sends the MODE MODIFY message (b) to the BTS to change the channel mode from signalling to speech or data. At this point the BSC connects the Abis channel to the A channel and the speech path is switched through. Synchronization with the transcoder starts as described in 3GPP TS 44.018. The MODE MODIFY message includes the following data: message discriminator: dedicated channel management message type: mode modify channel number channel mode: DTX control and channel type (speech, TCH/F or TCH/H, speech algorithm)

Procedures of FACCH Call Set-up

When the BSC receives the MODE MODIFY ACKNOWLEDGE message (c) as a response from the BTS, it starts to change the MS channel mode. If the BSC fails to receive the MODE MODIFY ACKNOWLEDGE message within the defined time limit, or the message does not contain all the information expected, the BSC returns an ASSIGNMENT FAILURE message to the MSC with the cause equipment failure. The MSC either aborts with a CLEAR COMMAND message or retries. If the BSC receives the MODE MODIFY NEGATIVE ACKNOWLEDGE message from the BTS, the BSC sends an ASSIGNMENT FAILURE message to the MSC either with the cause equipment failure or requested transcoding or rate adaption unavailable. The cause value is mapped from the cause value received in the MODE MODIFY NEGATIVE ACKNOWLEDGE message. The MSC either aborts with a CLEAR COMMAND message or retries. CHANNEL MODE MODIFY message After receiving the MODE MODIFY ACKNOWLEDGE message from the BTS, the BSC sends the CHANNEL MODE MODIFY message to the MS and starts a timer. The CHANNEL MODE MODIFY message (e) is transparent to the BTS and is transferred as the DATA REQUEST message (d) over the Abis interface. The CHANNEL MODE MODIFY message includes all the information necessary for the MS to change the channel mode from signalling to speech or data. The message consists of the following: header channel description channel mode: speech full rate, speech half rate or data full rate.

On receiving the CHANNEL MODE MODIFY message over the radio interface, the MS changes the channel mode and acknowledges this by sending the CHANNEL MODE MODIFY ACKNOWLEDGE message (f) to the BSC. This message is transparent to the BTS and is transferred over the Abis as a DATA INDICATION message (g). The BSC checks the channel mode element of the CHANNEL MODE MODIFY ACKNOWLEDGE message. The procedure has failed if the old channel mode is returned instead of the one that was ordered. If the ordered channel mode is returned, the BSC sends the ASSIGNMENT COMPLETE message (h) to inform the MSC of the successful completion of the mode modify procedure. See 3GPP TS 44.018 for more details. If the timer used to supervise the receival of the CHANNEL MODE MODIFY ACKNOWLEDGE message expires, the BSC returns an ASSIGNMENT FAILURE message to the MSC with the cause radio interface message failure. The MSC either aborts or retries.

3 User interface of FACCH Call Set-up


You can set the FACCH Call Set-up for each BSC via the man-machine interface (MMI). Similarly with the MMI, you can set the New Establishment Causes Support (NECI) field on or off for an individual cell. The field allows the MSS to use the new establishment cause values: when an MS requests for a channel, the request can include more accurate information about the establishment cause and channel type needed for the requested service. The following calls and channel types are possible: emergency call (SDCCH or TCH/F) call re-establishment (SDCCH, TCH/F or TCH/H) answer to paging (SDCCH, TCH/F or TCH/H) answer to paging (SDCCH, dual rate) mobile originating speech/data call (SDCCH, TCH/F or TCH/H) location updating (SDCCH) other procedures on SDCCH. emergency call answer to paging ordinary call re-establishment.

The following channel request values can be set in FACCH call set-up:

The channel request values in the NECI field also include an indication of the suggested rate, such as the half rate support for the call. The BSC will allocate a suitable resource for a transaction according to the SDCCH or the TCH. For more details, see Half Rate in BSC.
