HSDPA accessibility rate degraded.

Hi experts,What's the possible reasons of HSDPA accessibility rate degraded (NSN Technologie). The PS384 is used 20% in the infected NodeB,then i suspect that the basic proble m is the CE congestion in the uplink .In fact,the PS384 uplink bearer uses about 12 to 16 CE according to the system module used. I'll change the parameter HSDPAMaxBitrateUL from 6 (384kbps) to 4 (128kbps). This parameter defines the maximum user bit rate allowed in a cell for HSDPA UL DCH return channel. It is applicable to the PS domain NRT RAB.

For the HSDPA Accessibility please first check the RSRAN 073 Report for the infe cted NodeB and see where you are having the maximum failures which is contributi ng max to HSDPA Accessibiility degradation. Then Below are the reasons you have to look into. 1) For Setup Fail BTS--Check CEs at BH 2) For setup fail UL Return Channel--check UL power congestion and reduce the UL bit rate accordingly. 3) For Setup Fail Iub Transport-- check Iub Resource Congestion 4) For Setup Fail UE-- Check RAB Reconfiguration failure Rate 5) For Setup Fail RNC-- Check RNC Unit Load and Alarms on units 6) For Setup Fail too many Users-- Check simultaneous HSDPA Users So first thing to do is to find actually which out of these 6 reasons is contrib uting for your accessibility degradation so that you can work on that. Hope will be helpful. the HSDPA =downlink and PS384 should be R99! the HSUPA=uplink and should be not use 384k, so what you saying is DCH/HS, so if you have high RTWP (UL RSSI) than try to lower the DCH rate to 128 or 64 Actually if the RAB used is DL=HS/UL=DCH you will need HSDPAMaxBitrateUL =384 ot herwise don't expect to have high bit rates on HSDPA DL (like 14 Mbpsec or more when you have MIMO or DC-HSDPA)). That is because whatever application is used b y your mobile(TCP/IP usually) on your test laptop it will need an acknowledgemen t sent in uplink( to UTRAN network). That acknowledgement is using a DCH channel ( R99) that needs to have a specific bandwidth. You can try a new value of HSDPAMaxBitrateUL =384 Kbpsec but have a look at your HSDPA throughput and see if it is not limited by this change. After implementing the HSDPAMaxBitrateUl=128Kbpsec,I found that HSDPA throughput has deteriorated even more.Then I'll return to the first configuration and try an alternative. Usually synchronization affects RRC accessibility and you need to maintain a cer tain number of consecutive sync burst to establish/keep your connection. You nee d to check your sync timers, sometimes if it is set to high value you lose your connection more frequently otherwise you should have a look on the sync server/s olution. It is also a good idea to check Sync alarms on node-B/RNC level. In cas e you have server issue, then you are supposed to see more alarms at node-b/RNC level. Moreover, you are supposed to see RAB drop due to abnormal release/sync i ssue.

. and again if the failure due to syn ch it most be problem in Air interface DL or UL..i suggest pulling CE util stats first on a per hour basis to really veri fy if CE util is reaching capacity/license limit. IF y ou sure that cell s footprint is controlled and UL RSSI is good you need to modify some timers as Dan suggest. I can t recommend values as I m not NSN expert While CE congestion is one of the common causes of accessibility problems in mos t countries and vendors we should not conclude until we see the actual CE utiliz ation..also there are counters indi cating if accessibility issues are due to HW limitation. cell has high UL RSSI.. it could be UE accessing the ce ll from too far. or there is pilot population in DL..As Dan mention RRC failure will not effect HS accessibility or HS/EUL Throughput .. it will shows poor PS or CS accessibility...
