Introduction:-

The signalling transported on the SDCCH channel is aimed at reaching the service requested by the Mobile Station; in some cases this represents only the setup of

Signalling Analysis:-

First of all the channel request message is sent from the MS on RACCH Channel to the BTS and the BTS sends the channel required message to the BSC.

This is always the first step for accessing the network. This part of signalling is performed for every MS accessing a service, independently on the kind of service re

This CR message consists of 8 bits 3 bits are reserved for the establishment cause and 5 bits for the random reference. Among the 8 possible combinations of esta the other 3 combinations are not valid and then refused by the network.

Reasons for SDCCH failures:Poor RF Condition Path imbalance or sensitivity difference between MS and BTS Co-BCCH & BSIC problem Ghost random RACCH Bursts of random accesses (HO access) channel activation not acknowledgement message failure

Recommendations: Modify the SDCCH formula:- Remove the SDCCH fails due to Timer expiry T3101 from SDCCH abis failure counter SDCCH KPI could be improved by optimized use of cell parameters and removing the Co-BCCH and Co-BSIC problems. Lower the Rx Lev min Access in urban area. Make cell boundary less by tilting and improving coverage area. Also increase the periodic location update counter to lower the no of location updates.

It has been observed that SDCCH failures are in the cells between location area boundaries due to high location updates.It is recommended that use cell hystere
