The offoading and handover impact due to Inter-RAT must also be considered as part of the overall network capacity

planning process. Various reasons to support this idea and they are:

IMS are most likely to be absent in many early LTE network so CSFB are likely to be required to carry voice traffc. Hence,

the amount of LTE traffc should be reduced as VoLTE terminal is unlikely to be commercially available till late 2011.

SRVCC (Single Radio Voice Call Continuity) will come into service once IMS becomes a standard component in

Operators’ network

On the other hand, once VoLTE becomes widely available, the traffc level in LTE will also increase signifcantly but

likely to be in a gradual fashion.

LTE networks are unlikely to have contiguous coverage throughout the entire customer network especially outside certain

urban area in most cases, meaning data users at the edge of network are likely to be “offoaded” to UMTS/GSM network

UE redirection from existing UMTS/GSM network back to LTE is unlikely to be available for most customer network

upon initial launch due to new software requirement in UMTS/GSM network.


Although LTE capable terminal is required to rescan for LTE network after 6 minutes, this rescanning could be

hindered by any active connections to UMTS/GSM during this period. The fnal delay period could also depend on

individual UE manufacturer’s rescanning algorithm.

Different Inter-RAT handover algorithms are listed below:
