HSDPA State Transition


1. Introduction
The HSDPA concept is to increase packet data throughput with methods including link adaptation and fast physical layer (L1) retransmission combining, with HSDPA, two of the most fundamental features of WCDMA, variable SF and fast power control, are disabled and replaced by means of adaptive modulation and coding. The idea in HSDPA is to enable a scheduling such that, if desired, most of the cell capacity may be allocated to one user for a very short time, when conditions are favorable. In the optimum scenario, the scheduling is able to track the fast fading of the users. HSDPA Enhanced Package HSDPA State Transition WRFD-010611 WRFD-01061111

2. HSDPA State Transition Description


This feature enables the UE to perform a state transition among CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH), CELL_DCH, and CELL_FACH. With the introduction of HSDPA, a new RRC state of CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH) is provided. The flowing figure shows the RRC state relation.

(with HS-DSCH)

Channel Switching Between CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH) and CELL_FACH If the HS-DSCH is carrying BE service or streaming service and there is no data to be sent for a long time, the transition from CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH) to CELL_FACH is triggered. Actually this feature is supported in the same way as state transition from CELL_DCH to CELL_FACH. A UE on CELL_FACH will be switched to CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH) due to a higher bit rates request on downlink. Channel Switching Between CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH) and CELL_DCH The channel switching between HS-DSCH and DCH is mainly triggered by mobility management. The transition from CELL_DCH to CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH) can be triggered by periodical retry and the traffic volume The mobility triggering is described in WRFD-01061006 HSDPA Mobility Management feature. The traffic volume report that indicates a higher bit service needs to be transferred. The UE in CELL_DCH will be transferred to CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH) if it is an HSDPA capable cell and the UE has HSDPA capability. This feature enables the UE to enjoy high speed service. If an HSDPA capable UE is set up on the DCH for BE services for some reasons. For example, when the admission of the HS-DSCH fails, a periodical retry mechanism will take action, allowing the UE to enter the CELL_DCH (HS-DSCH). The retry time is configurable. Enhancement None. Dependency WRFD-010610 HSDPA Introduction Package Benefits This feature supports the switching between DCH and HS-DSCH and makes it possible for the UE to enjoy the high speed service. Meanwhile, the system resource is saved in the way of moving the UE to CELL_FACH if the UE is not in active state.

1. Activation in License. 2. Users (UE) must be defined in HLR as follows: Set the Traffic class to interactive or background. Set the service rates to UL 64 kbit/s and DL 768 kbit/s. 3. On the BSC6810 LMT, set BE traffic threshold on HSDPA to 384 kbit/s: SET FRCCHLTYPEPARA: DlBeTraffThsOnHsdpa=D384; 4. Enable UE state transition algorithm switch and HSDPA_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH: SET CORRMALGOSWITCH: ChSwitch=PS_BE_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH-1, HspaSwitch=HSDPA_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH-1;

4. Parameter Detail
ChSwitch=PS_BE_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH-1 PS_BE_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH. When it is checked, UE RRC state transitions (CELL_FACH/CELL_PCH/URA_PCH) for services are allowed in the RNC. -1 means that the parameter is cheked. HspaSwitch=HSDPA_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH-1 HSDPA_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH. When it is checked, UE RRC state transitions to CELL_FACH for the DCCC algorithm of HSDPA services are allowed in the RNC. When the RAB on HS-DSCH is BE service, the PS_BE_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH is required to be checked simultaneously, when the RAB on HS-DSCH is PS real-time traffic, the PS_NON_BE_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH is required to be checked simultaneously.

T01-0101 Switching from HS-DSCH to FACH Objective
Verify the function of switching from HS-DSCH to FACH.

Network diagram
None.

Prerequisites

1. The WCDMA system is operational. The UE is operational. 2. HSDPA cell 1 belongs to NodeB 1. The connection is set up between them. The HSDPA service is enabled. 3. Define the UE on the HLR as follows: - Set the Traffic class to interactive or background. - Set the service rates to UL 64 kbit/s and DL 768 kbit/s. 4. On the BSC6810 LMT, set BE traffic threshold on HSDPA to 384 kbit/s:
SET FRCCHLTYPEPARA: DlBeTraffThsOnHsdpa=D384;

5. Enable UE state transition algorithm switch and HSDPA_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH: SET CORRMALGOSWITCH: ChSwitch=PS_BE_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH-1, HspaSwitch=HSDPA_STATE_TRANS_SWITCH-1; 6. On the BSC6810 LMT, start UE tracing.
Procedure Expected result The UE Tracing window shows the following: The RADIO BEARER SETUP message shows that the RB is mapped to HS-DSCH. The RADIO BEARER RECONFIGURATION message shows that the IE RRC StateIndicator on about the tenth line is cell FACH, indicating that the UE transits to FACH state. UE state transition accompanies HS-DSCH -> FACH switching. Remarks
1.

1. Start a PS service using the UE. 2. Do not transmit any data, which will trigger UE state transition

You may modify the value of BE HS-DSCH to FACH transition timer to shorten the time for waiting state transmission, for example: SET
UESTATETRANS: BeH2FStateTransTimer=30;

2.

3.

The service rate of UE must not be below the value of BE traffic threshold on HSDPA at least; After the verification, restore the configuration.
