Cell_Bar_Access

Parameter Name
Description

Cell_Bar_Access
This parameter specifies the cell bar access (CBA).
Value No indicates that cell access is allowed.
Value Yes indicates that cell access is not allowed.
Together with CBQ, this parameter can be used to determine the priority
of cells. For details, see GSM Rec. 04.08.

Configuration Policy The CBA function applies to special conditions. If this parameter is set to
Yes and Cell Bar Quality (CBQ) is set to No, only handovers are allowed
in a cell, and direct access of an MS is not allowed. This condition applies
to a dual-network coverage cell. For a common cell, this parameter
should be set to No.

CRO(2dB)
Parameter Name
Description

CRO(2dB)
This parameter specifies the manual correction of C2.
If this parameter is properly configured, the number of handovers can be
reduced and a better cell can be assigned to the MS. When PT is set to 31,
it becomes more difficult for an MS to access the cell when CRO
increases.
Generally, the CRO should be less than 25 dB because excessively large
CRO may bring uncertainties to the network.In addition, the same CRO
applies to the cells with the same priority.For details, see GSM Rec. 05.08
and 04.08.
This parameter affects only GSM Phase II MSs or GSM PhaseII+ MSs.

SACCH Multi-Frames(SACCH period


(480ms))
Parameter Name
Description

SACCH Multi-Frames(SACCH period (480ms))


This parameter is used by the BTS to inform the BSC of radio link
connection failure.
When the BTS receives the SACCH measurement report from the MS,
the counter for determining whether a radio link is faulty is set to the
value of this parameter. Each time the BTS fails to decode the SACCH
measurement report sent by the MS, the counter decreases by 1. If the
BTS successfully decodes the SACCH measurement report, the counter
increases by 2.
When the value of the counter is 0, the radio link fails.The BTS sends a
connection failure indication message to the BSC.The number of SACCH
multi-frames and the radio link failure counter in the system message
specify the radio link failure time on the uplink and that on the downlink
respectively. The judgment standard is whether the SACCH message is
correctly decoded.

RACH Busy Threshold


Parameter Name
Description

RACH Busy Threshold


For the BTS3X series and double-transceiver BTSs, this parameter
specifies the level threshold for the MS random access when the BTS
determines the RACH busy state. When the receive level of the random
access burst timeslot is greater than this threshold, the BTS considers that
the timeslot is busy. For the BTS3X series and the double-transceiver
BTSs, this parameter only indicates whether the timeslot is busy. The
threshold setting does not affect the normal access of the MS.
For the BTS2X series (excluding the BTS24), this parameter specifies the
level threshold for the BTS to determine an MS random access.When the
receive level of the random access burst timeslot is greater than this
threshold and the access demodulation is successful, the BTS considers
that the timeslot is busy and determines whether the RACH access is
valid based on the parameter Random Access Error Threshold. For the
BTS2X, the parameter RACH Busy Threshold is used to determine
whether the timeslot is busy. In addition, the parameter affects the normal
access of the MS. The MS access is allowed only when the level of the
MS random access burst is greater than the RACH Busy Threshold.
For the BTS24, this parameter has two functions. One function is
indicating the level threshold of the MS random access for the system to
determine the RACH busy state. When the receive level of the random
access burst timeslot is greater than this threshold, the BTS considers that
the timeslot is busy. The other function is indicating whether the MS
access is allowed.The MS access is allowed only when access level
(including random access and handover access) is greater than the
threshold.
The value of this parameter ranges from 0 to 63 (corresponding to -110
dBm to -47 dBm).

Modification Rules None


Configuration Policy For the BTS2X series (excluding the BTS24), this parameter must be set
according to the actual receiver sensitivity of the BTS and the minimum

access level of the MS to ensure the balance between the uplink and the
downlink. This parameter also affects handover access of RACH BURST
during asynchronous handover.
For the BTS3X series and double-transceiver BTSs, this parameter does
not affect MS access but affects the reporting of CCCH_LOAD_IND. If
the level received by the BCCH on the network side is greater than the
RACH Busy Threshold, the CCCH_LOAD_IND is counted once whether
the decoding is successful. The RACH whose level is lower than the
RACH Busy Threshold and whose decoding is successful is also counted.
The measurement period is the Average RACH Load Timeslot Number.
If the value of this parameter is too small, the BTS easily considers that
the RACH timeslot is busy and reports overload messages to the BSC. If
the value is too great, the BTS cannot determine the status of the RACH
timeslot correctly.
For the BTS24, if this parameter is used to determine busy timeslot, its
setting is consistent with that in the BTS30. If this parameter is the level
threshold for valid random access, its setting is consistent with that in the
BTS20.
The settings of the BTS312, BTS3001C, BTS3001C+, BTS3002C, and
double-transceiver BTS must be consistent with the meaning and
requirement of the BTS30.

Radio Link Timeout(SACCH period (480ms))


This parameter specifies when an MS disconnects a call if the MS
unsuccessfully decodes the SACCH message. For details of this
parameter, see GSM Rec. 0408 and 05.08.
Once a dedicated channel is assigned to the MS, the counter S is enabled
and the initial value is set to this parameter value.
Each time an SACCH message is not decoded, the counter S decreases by
1. Each time an SACCH message is correctly decoded, the counter S
increases by 2.When the counter S is equal to 0, the downlink radio link
is considered as failed.Therefore, when the voice or data quality is
degraded to an unacceptable situation and it cannot be improved through
power control or channel handover, the connection is to be re-established
or released.

RACH Min.Access Level(dbm)


Parameter Name

RACH Min.Access Level(dbm)

Description

For the BTS3X in 03.0529 or later and the double-transceiver BTSs, this
parameter specifies the level threshold for the random access of the MS.
If the receive level of the RACH burst is smaller than the value of RACH
Min.Access Level, the BTS regards this access as an invalid one and no
decoding is performed. If the receive level of the RACH burst is greater
than the value of RACH Min. Access Level, the BTS considers that an
access request exists on this timeslot, and determines together with the
value of Random Access Error Threshold whether the RACH access is
valid.
Generally, RACH Busy Threshold is higher than RACH Min.Access
Level. Therefore, for the BTS24, RACH Min.Access Level is shielded.
For the BTS2X (excluding the BTS24), the RACH Min.Access Level
parameter is invalid.
