Service Based HO Description

1/3
Forces UE on DCHs using a speech only
service, to move from WCDMA RAN coverage to
GSM network coverage
Allows the operator to redirect speech users to
GSM using a Service Indicator (SI) that can be
set per subscriber
Activated at RNC level
Service Based HO Description
2/3
Handover decision of a speech only call is made
by RANAP IE Service Handover from MSC during
call setup
IE has three values
- Should: Via SBHO
- Should Not: Only when coverage is lost
- Shall Not: Never handover to GSM
Service Based HO Description
3/3
Provides means to the operator to modify IRAT
HO characteristics per call basis
Must be activated in core network (MSC) and in
the radio network (UTRAN and BSS)
SBHO feature is activated per BSC with exchange
property SBHOACTIVE
Affected Nodes 1/1
2G MSC
3G MSC
BSC
RNC
Additionally, one GSM cell with neighbour
relations to WCDMA cell must exist. The GSM
cell and the WCDMA cell shall cover the same
area.

MSC Preperation 1/2
Action1: Verify that the feature Partial
Roaming is de-activated in the MSC. The value
should be 0
Action2: Verify that the feature Service based
handover is available in the MSC. The value
should be 1
Action3: Verify that the feature Service based
handover is activated in the MSC. The value
should be 1
MSC Preperation 2/2
Action4: Verify BSHSPGSMRES is set to 2 in the
2G MSC
Action5: Print analysis results for the IMSI
NUMBER SERIES in both MCSs
Action6: Define in the IMSI NUMBER SERIES a
FORBRAT profile for the IMSI of a subscriber
WCDMA RAN Preperation 1/1
Action7: Set the following parameters to ON in
the RNC
- ServiceBasedHOSupport
- GsmHoAllowed
- FddGsmHoSupport
Action8: Set HoType to GSM_Preferred at cell
level
BSC Preperation 1/1
Action9: Verify that the feature Service based
handover is available in the BSC. The value
should be 1
Action10: In the BSC, activate the optional
feature SBHO for the BSC

Tools Needed For Demo 1/1
Two UE dual band (GSM/WCDMA)
TEMS software
Demo Case.1 SBHO 3G to 2G
1/2
Demonstrate that service based handover to GSM
is performed for a speech call, when the IMSI
series analysis ANRES parameter FORBRAT is set
to 1 for the originating UE
UE1 is forced to perform inter-system handover
to GSM
The parameter RSHSPGSMRES call should be set
to 0 (default value)
Demo Case.1 SBHO 3G to 2G
2/2
Check that parameter FORBRAT is set to 1 (GSM
access forbidden) for UE
Demo Case.1 Execution 1/2
Perform a Location Update with UE in WCDMA. (3G
MSC)
Initiate an originating call from UE1 to UE2
- The call will be handed over to GSM (2G MSC)
- The handover request message will be sent to
2G MSC with BSSMAP service handover IE = 2,
encapsulated into MAP prepare handover
request. The MAP prepare handover request
will also include RANAP service handover IE
with value =0.
Demo Case.1 Execution 2/2

- pmNoSuccessOutSbHoSpeech
Demo Case.2 SBHO 3G to 2G
Trigerred by Coverage 1/2
Demonstrate that service based handover to GSM
is performed for a speech call only if the 3G
coverage decreased, when the IMSI series
analysis ANRES parameter FORBRAT is set to 1
for the originating UE
UE1 is will not perform inter-system handover to
GSM unless the 3G coverage decreased
Demo Case.2 SBHO 3G to 2G
Trigerred by Coverage 2/2
The parameter RSHSPGSMRES call should be set
to 1
Check that parameter FORBRAT is set to 1 (GSM
access forbidden) for UE
Demo Case.2 Execution 1/2
Perform a Location Update with UE in WCDMA
(3G MSC)
Initiate an originating call from UE1 to UE2
Demo Case.2 Execution 2/2
Monitor SBHO Counters

- pmnoSbHoMeasStart
- pmNoSuccessSbHo

- pmNoAttSbHoSpeech
- pmNoSuccessOutSbHoSpeech
Demo Case.3 Speech Call Will be
Kept in 3G (No IRAT HO) 1/2
Demonstrate that service based handover to GSM
will not be performed for a speech call. When the
3G coverage decreased, the call will be dropped,
the IMSI series analysis ANRES parameter
FORBRAT is set to 1 for the originating UE
UE1 is will not perform inter-system handover to
GSM until the 3G coverage decreased and then
dropped
Demo Case.3 Speech Call Will be
Kept in 3G (No IRAT HO) 2/2
The parameter RSHSPGSMRES call should be set
to 2
Check that parameter FORBRAT is set to 1 (GSM
access forbidden) for UE
Demo Case.3 Execution 1/1
Perform a Location Update with UE in WCDMA
(3G MSC)
Initiate an originating call from UE1 to UE2
The call will be kept in 3G MSC, when the 3G
coverage decrease, the call will dropped
