Overview

Feature Introduction

2.1.1

ZWF26-01-010 Enhanced F-DPCH


As a substitute for a downlink associated DPCCH, an F-DPCH is introduced to improve
DL channelization code utilization efficiency. One F-DPCH can transmit TPCs of up to 10
UEs per slot, see the following figure.

time

Because of soft handover or softer handover, each UE probably needs to receive


F-DPCH signals from several cells. As a result, the average number of UEs served by
each F-DPCH is reduced. Moreover, the F-DPCH is constrained by a timing offset;
therefore, all F-DPCHs received by one UE must have the same timing offset. If another
UE in the status of macro-diversity wants to use the same timing offset for the same
F-DPCH, conflict occurs. In this case, the capacity of each F-DPCH is further reduced.
Assuming that 30% of UEs are in the status of soft or softer handover, the capacity of an
F-DPCH is decreased to 3 or 4 UEs actually.
The enhanced F-DPCH feature has removed the restriction on F-DPCH timing offset, for
example, allow activating several F-DPCHs to use different timing offsets, which are
configured at the network side. This feature requires the UE to buffer a 1-bit TPC
command per slot.
Because the enhanced F-DPCH is introduced, the F-DPCH slot format defined in 3GPP
R6 is changed. Originally, the offset is a fixed value from the TPC field to the slot
boundary. After being changed, the offset is determined by one of the multiple F-DPCH
slot formats. Assuming that 30% of UEs are in the status of soft or softer handover, the
capacity of an enhanced F-DPCH is increased to 7 UEs actually.

Technical Description

3.1

ZWF26-01-010 Enhanced F-DPCH


This feature is optional in 3GPP Rel-7. Because the slot formats for an F-DPCH are
extended, there are 10 options for TPC position in one time slot at an F-DPCH frame
offset. Compared with the F-DPCH in 3GPP Rel-6, an E-FDPCH increases the
multiplexing opportunity for the UE during a soft handover, which saves downlink
channelization code resources.

For the basic principles of an F-DPCH, refer to the ZTE UMTS F-DPCH & SRB over
HSDPA Feature Guide.
For convenient description, the F-DPCH in this feature guide denotes a usual F-DPCH,
and the E-FDPCH denotes an enhanced F-DPCH introduced in 3GPP Rel-7, that is, the
extended slot formats based on the F-DPCH in 3GPP Rel-6.
The differences between E-FDPCH and F-DPCH only reside in the multiplexing method,
dynamic radio bearer control and mobility management, while the same parts are not
described in this feature guide. For more details, refer to the ZTE UMTS F-DPCH & SRB
over HSDPA Feature Guide.

3.1.1

Frame Structure and Slot Format of an E-FDPCH


The frame structure of an E-FDPCH is the same as that of an F-DPCH, and is illustrated
in the following figure. The difference is the slot format.

Figure 3-1

Frame structure of an F-DPCH

In 3GPP Rel-6, a fixed slot format (Slot Format #0 in the following table) is used. In 3GPP
Rel-7, there are 10 slot formats. Each slot format corresponds to a different position of
the TPC field within an F-DPCH slot. Ten positions of 256 chips are denoted by Slot
Format #0#9. The exact number of bits of the OFF periods and the number of the TPC
field (NTPC) are described in the following table.

Because the multiplexing is independent of each cell, the F-DPCH slot format is
configured by the CRNC. For Iur, the slot format is allocated by the DRNC and then
transfered to the SRNC. The UE during a soft hanover receives different slot formats
from different cells and combines multiple TPC commands about the same downlink slot
from the same radio link set.

3.1.2

Requirements for Utilization of the E-FDPCH


When the following conditions are met, the E-FDPCH can be enabled for the UE.

The parameter for the E-FDPCH on the RNC level (Uhspa.rncEfdpchSupInd) is set
to Supported.

The parameter for the E-FDPCH on the cell level (UUtranCellFDD.efdpchSupInd) is


set to Supported.

The Node B indicates that the cell supports the E-FDPCH through the F-DPCH Slot
Format Capability IE in the AUDIT RESPONSE message or other related
messages.

The UE indicates that it supports the E-FDPCH through the Enhanced F-DPCH
supported IE.

There is no DCH in the downlink.

Note:
If the conditions for utilizing the E-FDPCH are met and SRBs can be carried on HSDPA,
and if there is a service carried on HSUPA, the conditions for SRBs carried on HSUPA

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

Enhanced F-DPCH

should be also met, otherwise, SRBs cannot be carried on HSDPA and the E-FDPCH
cannot be used. For details, referto the ZTE UMTS SRB over HSUPA Feature Guide.
For an inter-RNC neighboring cell, the E-FDPCH capacity is configured by
UExternalUtranCellFDD.eFdpchSupInd.

3.1.3

Multiplexing Method of the E-FDPCH


For the cells and the UEs supporting the E-FDPCH, the multiplexing method of the
channelization code for the E-FDPCH is independent of the configured F-DPCH frame
offset, which means that the UEs with the same F-DPCH frame offset can use the same
channelization code in different slot formats. The RNC allocates an F-DPCH slot format
to each radio link through the Iub and the Uu interfaces.
Both Rel-6 UEs and Rel-7 UEs may exist in a cell supporting the E-FDPCH. In order to
allocate the same channelization code for the F-DPCH to UEs in these two versions, the
RNC allocates an idle TPC bit position first for Rel-6 UEs, and then detemines the
F-DPCH frame offset based on Slot Format #0 and the TPC bit position for the UE to
establish the first radio link.

3.1.4

Dynamic Radio Bearer Control for the E-FDPCH


The principle of dynamic radio bearer control for the E-FDPCH is almost the same as that
for the F-DPCH except for the parameters. Because the use of the F-DPCH is related to
SRBs, the signaling channel allocation in the RRC phase, and signaling channel
allocation in the RAB phase and Dynamic Channel Type Transfer are described as
follows.

3.1.4.1

Signaling Channel Allocation in the RRC Phase


If the following conditions are met in the RRC phase, the SRBs of the UE can be carried
on the HS-DSCH and there is an associated F-DPCH.

The conditions of using E-FDPCH are satisfied, refer to 3.1.2 Requirements for
Utilization of the E-FDPCH;

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

Enhanced F-DPCH

The URncFunction.InitRrcOnDch parameter is set to 7: Forced to HSPA or 8: Not


Forced,Using HSPA Signalling on CELL_DCH state.

If either of the above conditions is not met or the SRB fails to be established on HSPA,
the RNC attempts to establish SRBs on the DCH at the rate of 3.4 kbps.

3.1.4.2

Signaling Channel Allocation in the RAB Phase


If the SRB is established on the DCH in the RRC phase, and if the following conditions
are met in the RAB phase, the SRBs of the UE in the RAB phase can be carried on the
HS-DSCH and there is an associated F-DPCH.

The conditions of using E-FDPCH are satisfied, refer to 3.1.2 Requirements for
Utilization of the E-FDPCH;

If the UHspa.Event1fHsInd parameter is set to 1: True and event 1F is configured


to the UE (that is, the measurement control message of event 1F is sent to the UE),
event 1F is not triggered; otherwise, event 1F does not need to be considered.

For the other scenarios of HS-DSCH serving cell change (including intra-frequency
and inter-frequency), transition from non HS-DSCH to HS-DSCH triggered by the
traffic volume in a cell, or relocation into the RNC, the conditions for E-FDPCH usage
are the same as those for signaling channel allocation in the RAB phase.
Note:
Event 1f indicates that the quality of a primary CPICH becomes worse than an absolute
threshold during a specified period. For details, refer to the ZTE UMTS Handover Control
Feature Guide.

3.1.4.3

Dynamic Channel Type Transfer for the E-FDPCH


The principles of dynamic channel type transfer for the E-FDPCH are the same as those
for the F-DPCH. For details, refer to the ZTE UMTS F-DPCH & SRB over HSDPA
Feature Guide.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

Enhanced F-DPCH

3.1.5

Code Resource Allocation for the E-FDPCH


Code resource allocation for the E-FDPCH is only related to channelization code
allocation and scrambling code allocation for a new established F-DPCH. The allocation
method is the same as that for the F-DPCH. For details, refer to the ZTE UMTS F-DPCH
& SRB over HSDPA Feature Guide.

3.1.6

Mobility Management for the E-FDPCH


A cell supporting the E-FDPCH and a cell only supporting the F-DPCH may be adjacent
cells, but the F-DPCH multiplexing method in each cell is independent, so the two kinds
of cells can be in the same active set.
If a UE supports the E-FDPCH, then the following situation may occur: Cell 1 in the active
set allocates the F-DPCH based on the method in Rel-6 and cell 2 in the active set
allocates the F-DPCH based on the method in Rel-7.
When the serving HS-DSCH cell changes, if the F-DPCH/E-FDPCH is used in the source
cell, but the conditions to use the F-DPCH/E-FDPCH are not met in the target cell, the
transition from F-DPCH to DPCH will be triggered.
When the serving HS-DSCH cell changes, if DPCH is used in the source cell, and the
conditions to use F-DPCH/E-FDPCH is met in all the cells in the active set, the transition
from a DPCH to an F-DPCH will be triggered.
During a hard handover or relocation into the RNC, if the target cell meets the conditions
to use the E-FDPCH, an F-DPCH is allocated.
Note:
For the conditions to use the E-FDPCH, refer to 3.1.4.2 Signaling Channel Allocation in
the RAB. For mobility management for the F-DPCH, refer to the ZTE UMTS F-DPCH &
SRB over HSDPA Feature Guide.
Because the F-DPCH Slot Format Support Request IE cannot be carried in the Radio link
addition message across the Iur interface, the F-DPCH cell and the E-FDPCH cell
crossing the Iur interface cannot stay in an active set if the UE is using the E-FDPCH.
The following rules are used:

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

11

Enhanced F-DPCH

If all the neighboring cells of the DRNC configured on the SRNC support the
E-FDPCH, the SRNC sends the F-DPCH Slot Format Support Request IE to the
DRNC through the Radio Link Setup Request message or the Radio Link
Reconfiguration Preparation message. And then the SRNC sends the F-DPCH slot
format fed back by the DRNC to the UE.

If not all the neighboring cells of the DRNC configured on the SRNC support the
E-FDPCH, the SRNC does not send the F-DPCH Slot Format Support Request IE,
and all the neighboring cells of the DRNC are regarded as cells with the F-DPCH.

If there is a radio link on the DRNC which is using the E-FDPCH, and if a new radio
link to be added on the DRNC does not support the E-FDPCH, the cell cannot be
added to the active set.

If there is a radio link on the DRNC which is using the F-DPCH, and if a new radio
link to be added does not support the E-FDPCH, the radio link can only use the
F-DPCH.

If the E-FDPCH is used by the UE, and if a new radio link to be added supports
neither the E-FDPCH nor the F-DPCH, the cell cannot be added to the active set.

For a neighboring cell of the DRNC which is not configured on the SRNC, if the
value of the cells F-DPCH Support Indicator in Cell Capability Container FDD
fed back through the Iur interface is Support, the cell is regarded as a cell which
supports the F-DPCH; otherwise, the cell is regarded as a cell which does not
support the F-DPCH. If the value of the cells F-DPCH Slot Format Support
Indicator in Cell Capability Container FDD fed back through the Iur interface is
Support, the cell is regarded as a cell which supports the E-FDPCH; otherwise,
the cell is regarded as a cell which does not support the E-FDPCH.

Application Scenario
1.

Scenarios for Enabling the E-FDPCH

One F-DPCH can be used by up to 10 users in time-multiplex mode and downlink


channelization code resources are saved, especially after the E-FDPCH is introduced in
3GPP Rel-7, the code utilization during a soft handover is improved. As a result of the
code saving on the F-DPCH, the number of HS-DPSCHs is increased, and the average
throughput and the user experience are improved. So it is recommended to activate this
feature after HSDPA is deployed. The E-FDPCH feature developed by ZTE is compatible
with the UEs supporting the F-DPCH in Rel-6.
2.

Precautions for Enabling the E-FDPCH

Because there may be compatibility issues from some UEs, it is recommended to


activate this feature in several cells first. If it is confirmed that there is no UE with
compatibility issues, this feature can be activated in the entire network, otherwise it
cannot be deployed in the network.

6.2

Network Impact

Equipment Performance

None
2.

Network KPI

Activating this feature, the advantage is:


Because of the restriction that the TPC from different cells for a given UE must have the
same offset timing during a soft handover is removed for the E-FDPCH, the multiplexing
of code resources increases, more downlink channelization codes are saved, and the
average throughput and the user experience are improved.
The possible disadvantages are as follows:

Because the downlink Pilot of DPCCH is removed and the mechanism for the
reliability of TPC commands between the F-DPCH and the DPCH is different, and
the UE combines the different slot formats for TPC, the RTWP may be raised.

Because there are compatibility issues from some UEs, the following KPIs may be
deteriorated: CS RAB setup success rate (caused by concurrent PS services and
CS services with the PS services set up first), PS RAB setup success rate, and PS
call drop rate.
