the NRT contains the Target Cell Identifier (TCI). using which the eNB will build the NRT. which identifies the target cell. For each NR. For each cell the eNB has.SCCPCH Secondary CCPCH SCH Synchronization Channel SDU Service Data Unit SGSN Serving GPRS Support Node SHO Soft/softer Handover SIB System Information Broadcast SIM Subscriber Identity Module SIR Signal to Interference Ratio SM Session Management SMS Short Message Service SN Sequence Number SRB Signalling Radio Bearer SRNC Serving RNC TB Transport Block TBS Transport Block Size TCP Transmission Control Protocol TGPS Transmission Gap Pattern Sequence TM Transparent Mode TPC Transmit Power Control TSSI Transmitted Signal Strength Indicator TX Transmitted UDP User Datagram Protocol UE User Equipment (mobile station) UL Uplink UM Unacknowledged Mode UMTS Universal Mobile Telecommunication Standard URA UTRAN Registration Area U-SIM UMTS Subscriber Identity Module UTRAN UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network VT Video Telephony ANR is a functionality on eNB that helps eNB build the neighbour cell information dynamically. The eNB will use this information for performing the UE handovers as it knows the PCI and ECGI. it maintains a NRT(Neighbour relation table). inter-RAT cells. An eNB supporting ANR will instruct the UEs to perform neighbour cell measurements and send them the report on a given event(as dictated by the eNB) . The NR can also be statically provisioned by the OSS(OA&M) infrastructure. may instruct the UE to perform neighbour measurements on Intra-LTE. the TCI corresponds to the E-UTRAN Cell Global Identifier (ECGI) and Physical Cell Identifier (PCI) of the target cell(it also has PLMNids and TAC) The serving cell of eNB (with ANR func). The idea is to ensure that the relationship configuration time does not affect the successful handover. . For E-UTRAN.
