(This is after the transitional hold frequency mode). This feature increases the LCF capacity on a GPROC2. The number of BTS sites is also increased from a maximum of eight BTS sites (15 RSLs). 250 cells. on an original GPROC. ----( GSR4 ). At 2% blocking on the air interface. to two MTLs on a GPROC2. (13) The BSS supports up to 100 BTS sites. Alternatively. it may be connected via a 64 kbit / s cross-connect in the RXCDR. The OXCO in free run mode will produce a clock output accurate to 0. During this time the GCLK is in free run mode and the input to the DAC is set to 80 (hex).---( one BSC) (14) The CBL (CELL broadcast link) can be connected directly from the X. this corresponds to approximately 820 Erlangs of traffic. The set frequency mode allows the software to use the LTA to set the DAC to control the output of the OXCO during loss of the 2.544 MHz or 2. This mode uses the last 8 bit word output from the ADC to set the DAC. or around 33 000 subscribers (at 25mE per subscriber ). * BA lists. The MTL limit has been increased from a maximum of one MTL.25 network into the BSC via an E1/T1 link. a 30 minute warm-up period is required for the ovenised crystal oscillator (OXCO) to reach the correct operating temperature.544 MHz reference signal. 384 carriers and 1920 trunks.05ppm. * Closed loop.

External Remote HDSL Modems can provide a HDSL to E1 conversion for connecting the HDSL to other network equipment. The NIU automatically selects the type of interface to use. (16) HDSL Application * The connections supported by the HDSL interface are best applied in microcellular applications where a relatively large number of sites that are to be interconnected are located in a small area. These External Remote Modems are controlled using the HDSL link from the NIU. enabling daisy chain BTS configurations to be realised. Each HDSL link requires one Master at one end and a Slave at the other end. either E1 or HDSL. 2. Once this state is reached (that is. dependent on which interface has been utilized. the output is within GSM specifications) the second sub state is activated. # The frequency lock state is again dependent on the GCLK hardware revision level. RXCDR / RXCDR specific 2).Within the closed loop mode there are two sub-modes or states: # The acquiring frequency lock state is the operating condition where the GCLK PLL output is converging towards the long term frequency of the E1/T1 link.

inner cell carriers are used for mobile units closely located to a base station. new handover and assignment algorithms need to be developed. This problem is illustrated in FIG. 1 below. novel frequency planning techniques must be employed by system operators if these operators are to provide sufficient capacity to support high volumes of traffic (per square kilometre) in densely populated (city) environments. while outer cell carriers are used for the more distantly located mobile units. It is therefore necessary to ensure that a mobile unit is not handed to an inner cell carrier when that mobile unit is in a pool of coverage away from the base station. in order to use the concept of concentric cells effectively. Concentric cells A concentric cell will have frequencies assigned to it that exhibit good interference isolation when a mobile user is closely located (proximal) to a base station in a coverage area. However. otherwise the mobile unit could suffer co-channel interference. the allocation of traffic to these "carrier" frequencies needs to be carefully controlled to ensure that these carriers are only used at acceptable levels of C/I. such as time division multiplexed communication systems. at the limits of the coverage area.CONCENTRIC CELL HANDOVER AND ASSIGNMENT ALGORITHMS February 6. 1996 by G Eastwick & J Hopkinson Introduction With the rapid growth of cellular systems. As such. Handover and Assignment Algorithm When using concentric cells (or a system employing low power transmission in the vicinity of a base station). This paper describes an improved handover and assignment algorithm. . One such technique is the use of a concentric cell system in which different frequency re-use patterns may be employed between a macro (upper) level and a concentric (lower) level. Bearing in mind the limited (and fixed) spectrum available to each communication system operator. it is becoming increasingly difficult to provide sufficient capacity in busy city centres using conventional frequency reuse techniques. these frequencies will suffer severe interference and will therefore be unusable. However.

2) where: Y is the operator definable margin. One possible algorithm is given below: y y Check if the radio signal level from the serving cell exceeds the GSM parameter (RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN + X). 1) where X is the additional signal level margin defined by a system operator. and (eqn. In mathematical form.Proposed Algorithm The concept behind the proposed algorithm is to estimate co-channel interference likely to be experienced by a mobile unit (at its current position) on an inner cell carrier in response to signal level measurements for outer cell channels that are known to possess co-channel inner cell carriers (frequencies). and If the radio signal level of the serving cell exceeds the linear average signal level of all specified neighbouring cells by an amount Y (where Y is an operator definable margin similar to X). where: RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN is the minimum allowable received signal level at a mobile unit required for access to the communication system through a base station (as specified in GSM rec. a handover/assignment to the inner cell carrier is triggered if: Serving cell radio signal level > RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN + X (eqn. This technique is possible since the inner and outer cell carriers share the same antenna. As will be understood. Summary . then a handover/assignment is allowed to take place to a proposed inner cell because the very strong radio signal level measured at the mobile unit indicates that the mobile unit is in close proximity to the base station. and thus the signal level on the inner cell carriers can be directly determined from measurements of the outer cell carriers.08). 5. 5. an ith Neighbour is a neighbouring cell known to possess a co-channel inner cell carrier. the specified neighbouring cells will be those cells with inner cell frequencies likely to give co-channel interference to the proposed inner cell.08) and X is an additional signal level margin defined by a system operator and is specified such as to require a mobile unit to have a stronger radio signal level that the minimum level specified in GSM rec. and all levels are measured in dBm.

the algorithm enables a more aggressive frequency reuse pattern to be established for the inner (concentric) cell frequencies and hence increases a volume of traffic that can be carried by a network (whilst retaining the same number of frequencies and site locations). The algorithm can be also used to effect a handover from the inner cell to the macro level before interference is experienced.This proposed algorithm will therefore prevent a mobile unit handing into (or being assigned to) an inner cell/carrier if that mobile unit is likely to suffer from interference from nearby co-channel (inner) cells. . As such.
