If the parameter is defined as disabled. you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 3 (second lowest bit-rate). 4. if it is set to "Y" it used Nokia slow LA. FR is to be assigned if free resources go above HRU to define the preference between the currently used multirate configuration and the one defined for the target BTS during internal and external handovers. BTS allows in-band codec mode changes only on the SACCH frame interval of 480 ms and this option give better flexibility with HO & PC algorithms. channel type and speech codec used in source BTS are primary allocated in target cell. With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 1 (lowest bit-rate). 1= any rate . Unused threshold is set as 0. Unused threshold is set as 0. Unused threshold is set as 0. With this parameter you define the codec mode set for a full rate channel. If set to 1. With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 3 (third lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate).9(4). With this parameter you define whether the initial codec mode used by the mobile station is defined explicitly in the AMR codec mode set or is it implicitly derived by the mobile station from the amount of codec modes in the AMR codec mode set. If the parameter is defined as disabled. 7. With this parameter. With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 4 (third lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 3 (second lowest bit-rate). btsLoadDepTCHRate (HRL) and btsLoadDepTCHRate (HRU) are considered in call set-up and handovers only when IAC=1. With this parameter you define the codec mode set for a full rate channel. 5.MML EE Descriptions TCHRateInternalHo (HRI) is used to control the speech and channel type changes in handover when IAC=1.. then the whole codec mode set is disabled. to define whether codec mode set downgrades during internal HOs and upgrades after internal HOs are applied or not.75(1) kbit/s With this parameter. Codec set used is 12.2(128). Unused hysteresis is set as 0. you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 1 (lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate). Unused threshold is set as 0. then the whole codec mode set is disabled.9(4).40(16).40(16). together with AMR FR threshold 1. With slow LA. With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 1 (lowest bit-rate). Unused hysteresis is set as 0. 5. EE EE EE EE EE EE EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ . With this parameter. 4. With this parameter you define whether the initial codec mode used by the mobile station is defined explicitly in the AMR codec mode set or is it implicitly derived by the mobile station from the amount of codec modes in the AMR codec mode set. Unused threshold is set as 0. together with AMR FR threshold 1. Unused threshold is set as 0. 2= always AMR FR if it is set to "N" (default) it is used ETSI fast LA. you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 3 (second lowest bit-rate).Codec set used is 7. With this parameter you define explicitly the initial codec mode used by the mobile station.75(1) kbit/s With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 1 (lowest bit-rate). Unused hysteresis is set as 0. together with AMR FR threshold 1. With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 1 (lowest bit-rate). HR is to be assigned if free resources go below HRL.

g. EH EH EH EH EH EH EH EH EH EH EH EH EH EH EH With this parameter you define the threshold level of the signal quality downlink measurements for triggering the handover.g. Defined for the default HR AMR set. Unused threshold is set as 0.EQ EQ EQ EQ EQ With this parameter you explicitly define the initial codec mode used by the mobile station. EH With this parameter you define the threshold level of the signal quality downlink and uplink measurements for triggering the intra-cell handover process for an AMR FR call in order to switch it to an AMR HR call. Unused threshold is set as 0. With this parameter you define the threshold level of the downlink signal quality measurements for the BTS power decrease. With this parameter you control the TCH channel rate determination in TCH allocation and the TCH speech codec to be allocated during internal intra-cell handover. + 5 dB) EU EU EU EU EU EU EU EU With this parameter you define the threshold level of the downlink signal quality measurements for the BTS power increase. Defined for the default FR AMR set. which type of speech calls are preferred to enter the super layers cells. Defined for the default AMR HR set.5 dB (compared to the current value) and good value for FR AMR e.g. With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 1 (lowest bit-rate). e. With this parameter you define the threshold level of the downlink signal quality measurements for the MS power decrease. With these new thresholds operator can control. Defined for the default FR AMR set. Defined for the default FR AMR set. Defined for the default HR AMR set. HR AMR calls could be packed to the super layer in order to increase the capacity of regular layer cells (good value for HR AMR e. Defined for the default FR AMR set. Threshold useed for unpacking for AMR HR to AMR FR. . With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 1 (lowest bit-rate). With this parameter you define the threshold level of the downlink signal quality measurements for the BTS power increase. With this parameter you define the threshold for swiTCHing from codec mode 2 (second lowest bit-rate) to codec mode 1 (lowest bit-rate). With this parameter you define the threshold level of the downlink signal quality measurements for the MS power decrease. Defined for the default AMR HR set. With this parameter you define the threshold level of the signal quality uplink measurements for triggering the handover. Defined for the default HR AMR set. Unused threshold is set as 0. With this parameter you define the threshold level of the downlink signal quality measurements for the MS power increase. With this parameter you define the threshold level of the downlink signal quality measurements for the BTS power increase. Defined for the default HR AMR set. With this parameter you define the threshold level of the downlink signal quality measurements for the BTS power decrease. RLT =36 .
