All those events are the main reason for a dramatic increase in the number of dropped calls limiting the network capacity well below the soft capacity limit due to speech quality. Radio Link Timeout (RLT) on SACCH. Signaling performance was sufficient to cope with the interference levels in early GSM deployments utilizing TCH/FS or enhanced FR speech (TCH/EFS) codecs at a system load appropriate for those codecs. the robustness of ACCH has not been improved. Under poor radio conditions connections have been terminated due to perceived bad speech quality by one of the parties before the call has been dropped due to signaling errors such as e. however. but the call is continued. The ability of decoding both traffic channels (TCH) and associated control channels (ACCH) is directly influenced by the radio conditions on the air interface.BR9. • The Layer 2 connection cannot be successfully completed due to lost acknowledgement information on the downlink (DL) direction FACCH.New Sales Features with BR9. is critical especially when call control. Today's state-of-the-art GERAN networks exploiting the robustness of AMR are deployed in aggressive 1x1 frequency reuse offering high capacity. the connection is released. Analyzing the call drop statistics in real networks planned in tight reuse and operated at medium fractional load showed that the vulnerability of ACCH especially in DL is currently the limiting factor for the network capacity. • The physical information sent on FACCH does not reach the MS in the target cell.2. A loss of control information. Originally in GSM the robustness of the signaling ACCH has been properly designed to match with the error protection schemes of the standard GSM full rate (FR) and half rate (HR) speech TCH (TCH/FS. It also showed that most of the call drops occur during the HO procedure. timers and counters are used to control retransmissions in case of missing acknowledgement from the receiving party. The resulting dropped call is counted in the performance statistics of the network.0 .24 Repeated Downlink FACCH and Temporary Overpower (TOP) for FACCH and SACCH During a dedicated connection the BTS and MS exchange also signaling messages containing control information. If a speech frame on the TCH is corrupted the speech quality might be degraded.

in addition operators can distinguish between the MS according to their Repeated ACCH capability. Cellular networks sometimes create interference in the public safety spectrum as a result of spurious emissions and intermodulation.Network operators that make an extensive use of robust codecs (TCH/AFS. cellular network operators are obliged by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to immediately analyze and solve disruptions of public safety wireless communication. This required analysis has to be done in close collaboration between the notifying safety agency and the cellular network operators.The BR9.

On the receiving side of an IR implementation. Puncturing is a technique of removing bits in predetermined locations of the data block after the block has been channel coded. UL IR is able to efficiently compensate for especially deep short term fades without causing a considerably slower Link Adaptation step.0 Uplink Incremental Redundancy feature the probability for correctly decoding retransmissions of the same RLC/MAC block by means of joint decoding is considerably higher than without IR.29. The SIEMENS UL and DL IR works optimally together with the Link Adaptation feature. Depending on the coding scheme. the receiver in the decoding process can recover the punctured bits. The receiver decodes the received block.2. A cyclic redundancy check checksum is added in order to guarantee the integrity of the received data after decoding.29 Uplink Incremental Redundancy Incremental redundancy is an enhancement of the classical automatic repeat request scheme.2. This leads to an overall EDGE/EGPRS performance gain of roughly 2-4dB over the C/I range from 5dB to 25dB. if the decoding failed. This is very advantageous without requiring additional signaling payload on the air interface.1 Customer Benefits By using the BR9.

Channel coding before puncturing adds redundancy to the bits of the data block.New Sales Features with BR9. the receiver keeps the soft bits of the inadequately received block in memory. It can then reuse these soft bits by combining them with the next retransmitted block's soft bits (joint decoding) to increase the chances for successful decoding. known as Hybrid ARQ of type II. This allows the data blocks to fit in the allocated user payload space. If it is not the case. the block coding process cycles through two or three puncturing scheme choices during successive repetitions of the same block.g.2 Related Documents • • PM:SBS Counters PM:SBS Message Flows 2.

For detailed information on hardware components and front view of the racks, see the respective hardware manual. Improvement of Concentric Cell Handover Handovers directly into the inner area of a concentric cell were possible, in case the handover request came from the inner area of a colocated concentric cell. With the improvement the requesting cell has not to be a concentric or colocated one any more. Enabling/Disabling Overheating Management Overheating Management can reduce the maximum throughput for various multislot Mobile Stations. Customer can disable the feature optionally in order to maximize the throughput. Channel Release in case of MS Inactivity A radio channel is released when the duration of the related call exceeds certain thresholds and there are no hints of activity such as handovers, so the callers most probably do not use the radio resource any more. Two algorithms are available. BSS Q3 Tracing (eBSC only) The BSS system supports also the Q3 internal tracing feature on eBSC only. Based on a configuration command, the user can activate/deactivate the Q3 tracing on the eBSC by means of the BRIDGE command addressed to the BSC MOC. Once the Q3 tracing is activated, an internal tracing tool is started on the Main Control Processor. This tracing tool collects the traces for all the active network interfaces (for example: Ipbased O-link, X25-based O-link for both duplex and simplex configurations). The traces (binary format) are stored on the MCP local file-system. The user must then upload the files on the LMT Evolution/Radio Commander using FTAM file transfer. Table 2

2G/3G Co-operation 2G and 3G networks are no longer considered as seperated systems with own radio infrastructure and hardware components. A significant lever for reducing expenses is to use synergies between installed GSM (2G) and UMTS (3G) equipment. In a first step, the installation of the UMTS base band functionality within a GSM BTS is possible. The RF part of the UMTS system is realized with Remote Radio Heads. Thereby a mixed 2G/3G system is available on the same footprint. Dual Band Support Dual band support 900/1900MHz for all BTSplus. Software Support of CAN bus for BS-288 Allocation Retention Priority The Allocation/Retention Priority feature provides the management of (E)GPRS calls in congestion situations according to the user profile, i.e. according to ARP Information Elements associated to that user (priority level, pre-emption capability, pre-emption vulnerability). If the BSS system receives ARP information from the SGSN, and if the BSS supports ARP handling, the priority levels and the pre-emption indicators of the incoming and allocated PFCs are used to determine whether the PFC assignment has to be performed. Derived Handover Power The Derived Handover Power feature allows the BTS and the MS to start the handover with the suitable (estimated) transmission power.The target cell uses the transmission power calculated by the derived handover power algorithm.

Implementation of DBAEM/CONVFILE Tool in the LMT GUI This feature integrates the current Dbaem/Convfile offline tools running on Windows platforms in the LMT Evolution. A specific Windows Graphical User interface, called G-DBAEM, provides an easy and user-friendly way to integrate the functionality of Dbaem/Convfile tools, reducing possible handling errors and saving time for the service users. LMT Authentication at the Network Entities This feature introduces an access protection for the LMT Evolution at the BSS Network Elements (BSC, BTS and TRAU) and therefore the management of the LMT Evolution user profiles by the same Network Elements. This new authentication procedure is available on T-Interface only and also on A-bis/A-sub if a LMT Evolution user is connected on BSC in remote mode. Central Network Service Layer This feature introduces one central Network Service Layer common for all the PCUs of a BSC located on only one PCU. This topology results in a single Network Service Entity (NSE). Its main benefits are a less complex GPRS configuration and a reduction in FR links.
