Handovertriggered CS service access has a higher requirement for signal quality compared with normal CS service access. Handovertriggered CS service access has a higher requirement for signal quality compared with normal CS service access. the access success rate for CSFB UEs depends on the success rate of handovers to the target RAT. signaling overhead caused by PS handovers is low. each CSFB procedure is equivalent to the initiation of a new CS service. Network Performance CSFB affects the access success rate as follows: l If l If redirection or CCO/NACC is used as the CSFB mechanism. 6. the access success rate for CSFB UEs is theoretically the same as that for normal CS UEs in the CDMA2000. PS handover is used as the CSFB mechanism. l The RRC connection setup success rate may decrease slightly for the UTRAN.4 LOFD-001052 Flash CS Fallback to UTRAN System Capacity In essence.

A blind handover to an required) inter-RAT cell can be performed only if a blind-handover priority is specified for the inter-RAT cell. Compared with measurement-based handovers, blind handovers reduce access delays but cause lower handover success rates. To deactivate blind handovers, clear the BlindHoSwitch(BlindHoSwitch) check box.

Measurement-based Handovers for CSFB
An appropriate event B1 threshold for CSFB ensures that inter-RAT handovers are triggered in a timely fashion. A high threshold results in a low probability of triggering event B1, thereby affecting user experience. A low threshold results in a high probability of triggering event B1, but causes a high probability of incorrect handover decisions and a low handover success rate. Tune the threshold based on site conditions. Event B1 for CSFB has a time-to-trigger parameter. This parameter lowers the probability of incorrect handover decisions and raises the handover success rate. However, if the value of this parameter is too large, CSFB delay is extended, affecting user experience. Tune this parameter based on site conditions. Appropriate settings of the threshold and time-to-trigger for event B1 raise the handover success rate and lower the call drop rate. The related parameters are as follows:
