BSC Counters: BSC Level Clear Code Measurement


The BSC clear code measurement registers statistics about clear codes for the BSC during calls. The call-related DX causes give more detailed information on the conditions inside the BSC than the GSM-defined cause values. Internal faults and timer expiry cases can be observed with the help of DX causes. The DX causes show also cases that are not observed in the MSC. They also include GSM causes when a network element other than the BSC initiates the clearing of the transaction. BSC clear codes and phases are presented in Appendix BSC Clear Codes and Phases . See also Call Related DX Causes in BSC . For more information on the documentation of the counters, with an example table and an explanation of the table fields, see BSC Counters: General Information on Measurements and Observations .
