Setting and Impact of CCCH_CONF
The CCCH_CONF is determined by the telecom operation department according to the traffic model of a cell. It is often decided in the system design period. According to the ordinary experience, if a cell has 1 or 2 TRX, we recommend that the CCCH uses one basic physical channel and shares it with the SDCCH; if a cell has 3 or 4 TRX, we recommend that the CCCH uses one basic physical channel but does not share it with the SDCCH.
