and the carriers of different carrier bands share one BCCH. also called high priority user preferential access or EMLPP. Supports the handover intra 900 MHZ frequency band. Abis interface. Supports the handover originated by network since service or interference management.Chapter 1 – System Overview Supports frequency hopping Supports DTX and VAD Supports various handover types Supports synchronous handover. Supports call-reestablishment when radio link is faulty iBSC supports call queuing and forced call release during assignment and handover. and allocate the channel resource to the users according to the priority. Co-BCCH is usually used in dual-frequency common cell. It is used to divide the users into different priorities. Dual-frequency common cell is a cell that supports the carriers of two frequency bands. Supports Co-BCCH. Co-BCCH networking has the following advantages: Save one BCCH time slot Configure the 1800 MHz carrier directly in 900 MHz cell. and send the cause to the background. There is no need to change the original cell adjacent Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION 5 . The higher the priority of the user is.

Supports dynamic HR channel conversion ZXG10 iBSC supports dynamic HR channel conversion. and confirms the MNC format in the broadcast message at Um interface according to the network number. half rate voice rate voice version is one of version I (HR) and version III (AMR). one prior voice version can be set for full rate and half rate channel. The advantage of dynamic radio channel is that it uses the radio resource the best according to the service type. ZXG10 iBSC allocates the channel according to various factors. Supports flow control Flow control is a method to protect the system. such as channel rate selection. but is configured dynamically in service process.ZXG10 iBSC (V6. interference band. and no need to consider the reselection and handover between the dual-frequency cell with common site. The current network number can be set as 2 or 3 digits. It controls the overload by limiting some services to ensure that the system runs normally. the channel allocation in intra-cell handover. the logic type of radio channel is generated according to the current call type rather than configured at background NM. Supports the handover between 2G/3G system Support handover from 3G to 2G in CS service Support handover from 2G to 3G in CS service Supports full dynamic Abis Full dynamic Abis is that the corresponding relation of radio channel and Abis transmission channel is not generated in OMC.

Supports satellite Abis and satellite Gb There is a bi-directional time delay about 540 ms. Supports various interfaces ZXG10 iBSC supports STM-1 interface. the packet data is retransmitted in original transmission coding mode. The EDGE measurement is based on each pulse. which means the measurement is performed by the granularity of Burst. iBSC selects the uplink TBF coding mode according to the measurement parameters of the uplink channel reported by BTS. which means that the transmitter finds out the packets that are not received correctly by the receiver according to the bitmap fed back from the receiver. iBSC supports selecting the coding mode by time slot and by TBF. Supports coding control Compared with GPRS. it selects the most proper PDTCH channel combination in the carrier according to the MS requirement. In downlink direction. there are two new retransmission methods: segmentation and reassembly. The fast measurement of EDGE makes the network is able to respond the change of the radio environment rapidly so that it can select the most proper coding mode and carry out power control. Fast Ethernet (FE) interface. for example. and incremental redundancy. and E1 interface. It allocates GPRS TBF or EDGE TBF to the MS according to the different GPRS/EDGE availability of MS. Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION 7 . the measurement report of EDGE is improved a lot. ZXB10 iBSC eliminates this impact as much as possible and ensures that the GPRS and EDGE services run normally. which impacts the GRPS and EDGE services a lot. then determines if to retransmit the corresponding packet. the block transmitted in CS4 coding is retransmitted in CS4 mode. In uplink direction. it selects the carrier with lower load first. Supports retransmission In packet service. In EDGE. When ZXG10 iBSC allocates the PDTCH channel to the MS. after selecting the carrier. the negative feedback is employed to control the retransmission. In GPRS.Chapter 1 – System Overview Dynamic Abis is to provide more bandwidth in case the Abis transmission bandwidth is fixed. Optimization of packet channel allocation algorithm ZXG10 iBSC supports the multiple time slot ability of the MS.
