it means the influence of receiving level on BCCH is not in consideration.  Unit: None  Content: It is used to indicate MS weather to reduce received level value obtained from the timeslots of BCCH when MS measures receiving level during base band hopping mode. If it is set to “Yes”. process it in the way mentioned above.. No. LTD. All rights reserved Page 73 .  Recommendation: Yes HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO. When it is set to “No”.PWRC  Value range: Yes.

B -92 C HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO. The coverage problem is thus solved.. Add neighbor relationship to Cell A and B for each other. The signal strength measured is less than -95dBm.Case Study  Case 1: Island effect  Case Description  During the process of optimization in a certain area. LTD. All rights reserved Page 82 -80 -95 A . it is found out that the signal is poor in a certain section of suburban highway.  Handling Procedure  Modify the data in BSC.

Case Study  Case 2: Incorrect CGI causes MS unable to register on the network.. or no network mark was displayed on the MS. MS could not get registered in the network. thus to ensured that the CGI data in BSC and MSC are the same. Some subscribers also complained that MS could make MTC could not make MOC. LTD. but MS indicated that the signal was very good.  Recommendation and summary  CGI is a very important parameter and should be configured correctly.  Note: If you configure it wrongly you can receive a call because it is coming thru the Paging siganl and eventhough the reselection is BSC level not MSC level so even if your Cell CGI is wrongly configured you can camp on it and receive a call but not originate a call because originating requires MSC pathway and u have wrong cell CGI  Case description  Cause analysis  CGI of the cell was modified.  The subscriber complained that MS could not register to the network. HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO. So the network register flow was not normal. Although the signal was very good. or it was difficult to register to the network between BTS A and B. All rights reserved Page 83 .

 Case description  Handling procedure  Modify parameter “RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN” of all cells in urban area and make them consistent with each other. Some frequencies are the suburb BTS signals far away from this area. LTD. All rights reserved Page 84 .Case Study  Case 3: RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN causes signal fluctuation.  Recommendation and summary  In area with complicated coverage. The cell reselection of MS is rather frequent. The problem of signal fluctuation is solved. From the testing mobile..  Subscribers complain that the signal fluctuates in a certain area. we can see that there are a lot of cells’ signals in this area. HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO. the “RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN” of each cell should be kept same. On-site test shows that this phenomenon does exist.

some MS often lost connection with network suddenly. Modify the corresponding time of MSC to 180 minutes.. All rights reserved Page 85 .   Handling procedure  Modify T3212 to 10. There are four BTSs.e. i. But from sometime on. 60 minutes. Case description  A local GSM network has more than 6000 subscribers. Two days’ observation shows no subscriber complaint and the problem is solved. The network has been working properly.Case Study  Case 4 : Too small T3212 causes MS lose connection with network. LTD. The complaint from subscribers in urban area increased. HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO.
