12 Half-Rate Service

HUAWEI BSC6000 Base Station Subsystem BSS Feature Description

12.1 Overview
The half-rate service is optional.

Definition
The half-rate service is a service where the speech coding rate is reduced to half the full-rate speech coding rate through a new speech coding algorithm. If the half-rate service is enabled, the physical channel carrying the service of only one calling MS can be able to bear the services of two calling MSs.

Purposes
If the half-rate service is enabled, the number of system-enabled MSs holding speech services is doubled without the addition of TRXs. Thus the frequency reuse rate is enhanced. Therefore, the telecom operators can fully utilize the network resources and minimize the operation cost.

Terms
Term Couple Definition A timeslot is composed of two half-rate subtimeslots. If both half-rate subtimeslots are idle, the channel where the two subtimeslots are located is called a Couple. A timeslot is composed of two half-rate subtimeslots. If one subtimeslot is occupied and the other subtimeslot is idle, the channel where the idle subtimeslot is located is called a Single.

The number of TRXs supporting the half-rate service must be within the range allowed by the license so that the TRXs can work normally. 12. 12.3 Technical Description The technical description of the half-rate service consists of the channel assignment strategies related to the half-rate service.1 Channel Assignment Strategies If the half-rate service is enabled. the half-rate service can be enabled. After the TCH Rate Adjust Allow is enabled. the BSC selects different channel assignment algorithms based on the channel assignment strategies in the data configuration after the BSC receives an Assignment Request message from the MSC. users need estimate the number of the full-rate and half-rate channels in a cell. and the resource reservation function involved in the rate adjustment.3. The license in the number of TRXs supporting the half-rate service needs to be requested for. If the configured channel is a full-rate speech channel. the dynamic adjustment from a full-rate channel to a half-rate channel is triggered if a half-rate channel is requested for. Thus. Based on the channel request type.2 Rate Adjustment Algorithms Rate adjustment algorithms consist of different request types of rate adjustment algorithms and the full-rate and half-rate adjustment procedures. The rate adjustment consists of the adjustment from a half-rate channel to a full-rate channel and from a full-rate channel to a half-rate channel. The dynamic rate adjustment is triggered in the channel assignment procedure.1 Channel Assignment Strategies If the half-rate service is enabled. the full-rate or half-rate selection procedure is triggered only when the type of the request channel is half rate TCH only. an appropriate TCH needs to be found in the current resources. 12.

NOTE Channel seizure ratio = (Number of busy full-rate channels + Number of busy half-rate channels/2)/ (Number of available full-rate channels + Number of available half-rate channels/2) x 100% 12. the channel assignment request is rejected. and then assigns the full-rate channels. If the number of adjustable idle half-rate channels in a cell does not exceed 1. If the type of the rate in a channel assignment request is not full rate TCH only or if the following requirements are not met. If the channel seizure ratio exceeds the TCH Traffic Busy Threshold. the system determines whether to assign half-rate channels or full-rate channels based on the traffic volume of the network. the channel request is rejected. There are three types of channel rates in a channel assignment request: l l l full rate TCH only half rate TCH only/half rate TCH preferable full rate TCH preferable If the type of the rate in a channel assignment request is full rate TCH only. In channel assignment algorithms. the BSC determines whether the number of adjustable idle half-rate channels in a cell exceeds 1. l Issue 01 (2007-09-05) Huawei Technologies Proprietary 12-5 . the channel request is accepted when the following requirements are met.3.

For the application for full-rate preferred or half-rate preferred. refer to Adjustment from a Full-Rate Channel To a Half-Rate Channel. If the current channel is a Single. 2. The system initiates the "Timer of Waiting CRDLC HO Responses(s)" and reserves sufficient time for the intra-cell handover. the Single is assigned. The handover is not controlled by the related configuration of handover. For detailed decision procedure. The BSC sets the necessary values of channel attributes. Because the defragmentation requires a long time. The queuing duration is set to 5.

The call loss rate is greater than B%. the "Timer of Waiting CRDLC HO Responses(s)" is stopped. The BSC judges whether the forced handover successes. l l If n <= a.3. all the service channels in the cell can be configured as the TCHFs. Huawei recommends an expansion for the cell. A handover failure procedure is performed. This function can be performed to reserve some full-rate speech channels for the high-priority users so that the quality of services for the high-priority users can be improved. Therefore. the cell is configured with one BCCH and two SDCCHs. the number of the TCHFs (f) configured in the cell must meet the condition. If n >= 2a.3 Function of Reserving Priority Resources If the applied channel is a TCH. an appropriate TCH needs to be found in the current resources. the number of service channels that can be supplied by the cell ranges from a to 2a. the handover fails. Therefore. If the number of TRXs in the cell is m.3. If 2a > n > a. but the "Timer of Waiting CRDLC HO Responses(s)" expires. users need estimate the number of the full-rate and half-rate channels in a cell. refer to the Couple adjustment procedure to perform the dynamic adjustment. At the same time. If the forced handover succeeds. an appropriate call needs to be found in the queue to assign the Single. If the forced handover fails.4 Estimation of the Number of the Full-Rate and the Half-Rate Channels in a Cell In some situations.
