1.2 Access Measurement per BSC


1.2.1 Overview
When an MS requires network services for reasons such as the Mobile Originated Call
(MOC), Mobile Terminated Call (MTC), emergency call, call re-establishment, location
updating, packet call, and Location Measurement Unit (LMU)+Reserved, it sends the BTS a
CHAN REQ message on the RACH. After receiving this message, the BTS reports a CHAN
RQD message to the BSC for a signaling channel.
After receiving the CHAN RQD message, the BSC assigns and activates a signaling channel
to the MS. If the BSC receives a CHAN ACTIV ACK message from the BTS, the signaling
channel is ready for the assignment. The BSC sends an IMM ASS CMD message, requesting
the MS to access the specified signaling channel. This signaling channel can be an SDCCH or
a TCH.
After receiving a FIRST SABM frame from the MS, the BTS sends an EST IND message to
the BSC.
After receiving the EST IND message that carries an MM message (CM SERV REQ message,
LOC UPD REQ message, IMSI DTCH message, PAG RSP message, CM RE-EST REQ

1.2.3 Immediate Assignment Commands per BSC


Counter
ZK3101: Immediate Assignment Commands per BSC

Meaning
In an immediate assignment procedure, an MS reports a CHAN REQ message to the BTS.
The BTS receives this message and sends a CHAN RQD message to the BSC. After receiving
the CHAN RQD message, the BSC assigns a signaling channel to the MS and activates the
channel. If the BSC receives a CHAN ACTIV ACK message from the BTS, the BTS already
prepares the channel. The BSC sends an IMM ASSIGN CMD message to the MS, requesting
the MS to access the specified signaling channel. This channel may be an SDCCH or a TCH.
This counter applies to the channel access due to all causes but PS services in all the cells
controlled by a BSC.

Trigger Point
None.

Formula
None.

Counter
ZK3000: SDCCH Seizure Requests per BSC

Meaning
In an immediate assignment procedure, an MS requests a channel from the BSS. In an interBSC incoming handover procedure, the MSC requests the BSS to assign a channel for the MS.
In an internal handover procedure, the BSC requests a channel from the BSS. In the channel
request procedures described previously, the BSC receives a related request and then
measures this counter if the requested channel is an SDCCH.

Trigger Point
None.

Formula

1.7 Handover Failure Measurement per BSC


1.7.1 Overview
Handover Failure Measurement per BSC refers to the measurement of handover failures
caused by different factors in a BSC. The handover may occur in a cell, in a BSC, between
BSCs, or between the 2G system and the 3G system.
Table 1-7 lists the counters of Handover Failure Measurement per BSC.

during the decoding, the BSC measures the number of failed external incoming cell handovers
based on the channel type, the crossing of frequency bands, and the failure cause.
The channel involved in the measurement may be an SDCCH or a TCH. The TCH may be a
traffic channel or a signaling channel.
The crossing of frequency bands is of the following types:
z

900/850 to 900/850

1800/1900 to 1800/1900

900/850 to 1800/1900

1800/1900 to 900/850

Along with External Incoming Cell Handover Requests per BSC and External Incoming Cell
Handover Commands per BSC, the counter shows the performance of external incoming cell
handovers. Along with the counters related to external outgoing cell handovers, the counter
shows the performance of the cell handovers between BSCs.

Counter
ZCH942A: Failed External Incoming Cell Handovers per BSC (Channel Unavailable)

Meaning
This counter measures the number of failed external incoming cell handovers because no
channel is available in all the cells controlled by a BSC. In an external incoming cell handover
procedure, the target BSC receives an HO REQ message from the MSC and decodes the
message. After successfully decoding the message, the BSC requests a channel from the target
cell. If the target cell returns a channel request failure message with the cause of channel
unavailable in it, the BSC measures the number of failed external incoming cell handovers
based on the channel type. The channel involved in the measurement may be an SDCCH or a
TCH.

Meaning
This counter measures the number of failed external incoming cell handovers because the
requested terrestrial resources is unavailable in all the cells controlled by a BSC. The
measurement is performed in the target cell based on channel type and the crossing of
frequency bands.
The target BSC receives an HO REQ message from the MSC and decodes it. The target BSC
then requests a channel from the target cell. If the request is successful, the target BSC sends a
CHAN ACTIV message to the target cell. After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK message, the
target BSC requests the terrestrial resources and terrestrial link resources about speech
services.
The CIC resources on the A interface is a key factor of the terrestrial resource request. The
MSC sends the target BSC an HO REQ message that carries the CIC. If the target BSC
detects that the CIC is unavailable, the BSC measures the counter Failed External Incoming
Cell Handovers per BSC (Requested Terrestrial Resource Unavailable).
The channel involved in the measurement may be an SDCCH or a TCH. The TCH may be a
traffic channel or a signaling channel.

channel status is not known, this neighbor cell is considered as idle. If all the neighbor cells of the source
cell are congested, a default neighbor cell (the first cell in the candidate cell list) is selected even if it is
congested. This counter is measured when the selected neighbor cell is the source cell. It is not measured
when the object overlaid or underlaid subcell is congested.

Trigger Point
None.

5 System Load Measurement

5.1 Overview of System Load Measurement


System Load Measurement refers to the measurement of the system load of the BSC. The
system load refers to the CPU usage of the BSC boards and the GBAM.
The CPU usage shows the load situation of the system, but a 100% CPU usage does not mean
that the CPU has reached its limitation and cannot process extra services. The BSC has a
certain buffer capability, which can save extra service requests. As long as there is still a
buffer area in the host, the BSC continues to process new services. Therefore, high CPU usage
does not necessarily mean that the BSC is faulty, even if the CPU usage reaches 80%
occasionally.
The buffer area of the BSC is limited. If the CPU usage is high for a long time, a transient
exhaustion of the buffer area may occur because there are sharp bursts of service requests.
The BSC will abandon new service requests.

Meaning
This counter measures the number of SABME frames that the BTS L2 sends on LAPD Link.
The SABME frame is sent to request for link setup.
During the startup and normal operation of the BSC, the BTS does not initiate a link setup
request or send SABME frames to the BSC. If the LAPD status is converted to multi-frame
(Multi_I) setup, the BTS may send SABME frames to the BSC.
If the physical uplink is disrupted, the measurement result cannot be sent to the BSC and this
counter does not increase.

Trigger Point
This counter is measured when the BTS L2 sends an SAMBE frame on LAPD Link.

Counter
L5102: SABME Frames Received by the BTS on LAPD Link.

Meaning
This counter measures the number of SABME frames that the BTS L2 receives on LAPD
Link.
The SABME frame is sent to request for link setup.
After the BSC starts up, the link status is converted to multi-frame (Multi_I) setup through the
frame interaction between the L2 entities of the BSC and the BTS. During this procedure, the
Abis interface board sends the SABME frame to the BTS L2. If the link is abnormal or the
link between the BSC and the BTS is disrupted, the BSC sends the SABME frame to request
for link setup.
If the physical uplink is disrupted, the BTS does not receive frames from the BSC and this
counter does not increase.
If the physical downlink is disrupted, the measurement result cannot be sent to the BSC and
this counter does not increase.

Trigger Point
This counter is measured when the BTS L2 receives an SAMBE frame on LAPD Link.

11.2.1 Overview of A Interface Paging Measurement
Measurement of the Paging on the A Interface per BSC refers to the measurement of the
number of paging messages from the core network.
The paging messages from the core network have two types, the circuit service (CS) pagings,
and the packet service (PS) pagings. The CS pagings are sent from the MSC to the BSC on
the A interface, and the PS pagings are sent from the SGSN to the BSC through the SGSN on
the Gb interface (The pagings can be sent directly to the BSC when the BSC has a built-in
PCU). The CS pagings can be sent to the BSC through the SGSN and the PCU when the Gs
interface (interface between the MSC and the SGSN) is available.

12.3.4 MSG CCCH LOAD IND (PCH) Messages Sent on Abis


Interface
Counter
L3188C: MSG CCCH LOAD IND (PCH) Messages Sent on Abis Interface

Meaning
The BTS saves the downlink CCCH (PCH) messages received from the BSC and the PCU
into different receive buffer queues. When the length of the queue exceeds the specified
threshold, the downlink CCCH is overloaded. The BTS can report overload to the BSC and
identify whether the overload is caused by excessive downlink packet services or by excessive
downlink circuit services. If the overload is caused by excessive downlink circuit services, the
BTS sends a CCCH LOAD IND message to the BSC and the BSC forwards it to the PCU.

Trigger Point
The measurement is triggered when the BSC receives from the BTS an MSG CCCH LOAD
IND (PCH) message. The cause carried in this message is downlink CCCH (PCH) overload of
circuit services.

Formula
None.

12.3.6 MSG ABIS OVERLOAD (CCCH OVERLOAD) Messages


Sent on Abis Interface
Counter
L3188E: MSG ABIS OVERLOAD (CCCH OVERLOAD) Messages Sent on Abis Interface

Meaning
This counter measures the number of times the BSC receives an MSG ABIS OVERLOAD
(CCCH OVERLOAD) message from a cell in a GP. When the BTS sends an MSG ABIS
OVERLOAD (CCCH OVERLOAD) message to the BSC, it also sends the BSC a CCCH
LOAD INDICATION message.
TRX overload reports (CCCH overload) = CCCH load reports (RACH overload) + CCCH load reports
(PCH overload) (circuit service and packet service).
In actual situations, this equation may not exist due to bit errors.

Trigger Point
The measurement is triggered when the BSC receives an MSG ABIS OVERLOAD (CCCH
OVERLOAD) message from the BTS.

Formula
None.

12.3.7 MSG ABIS OVERLOAD (PROCESSOR OVERLOAD)


Messages Sent on Abis Interface
Counter
L3188F: MSG ABIS OVERLOAD (PROCESSOR OVERLOAD) Messages Sent on Abis
Interface

Meaning
This counter measures the number of times the BSC receives an MSG ABIS OVERLOAD
(PROCESSOR OVERLOAD) message from a cell in a GP. Processor overload means that the
CPU load of the TRX processor in a cell exceeds the threshold. This counter is not directly
related to CCCH overload.

Trigger Point
The measurement is triggered when the BSC receives an MSG ABIS OVERLOAD
(PROCESSOR OVERLOAD) message from the BTS.

Formula

12.3.8 LOAD IND Messages Sent on the A-Interface


Counter
L3188G: LOAD IND Messages Sent on the A-Interface

Meaning
If a cell has no TCHs available but the cell has external neighbor cells, the BSC sends the
MSC a LOAD IND message to avoid the handover of the call from the external neighbor cell
to this cell. The MSC then forwards this message to the BSS where the external neighbor cell
is located. Therefore, the BSS will not select congested cells as candidate cells for handovers.
The BSC checks the number of idle TCHs every five seconds.

Trigger Point
The measurement is triggered when the BSC sends a LOAD IND message to the MSC.

Formula
None.

12.3.9 Increases of Flow Control Levels


Counter
L3188H: Increases of Flow Control Levels

Meaning
Cell flow control is performed through double timers. When a trigger event occurs, the event
is ignored if T1 is running. If T1 is not running, the flow control level increases by one unless
the flow control has already reached the highest level. T1 and T2 (T2 > T1) are triggered. If
T2 expires, the flow control level decreases by one. If the flow control level is not zero after
the decrease, T2 is triggered again.
This counter measures the number of times the trigger event occurs when T1 stops and the
flow control has not reached the highest level.

The description of the double timers is as follows:


When the event that can trigger AGCH flow control occurs, the cell flow control timer is triggered if
neither T1 nor T2 is running. The timer length is T1. The status of the timer is changed to T1 running.
z

If the flow control does not reach the highest level (level 5), the AGCH flow control level increases
by one and the number of times the flow control level increases is measured.

If the flow control level has reached the highest level, the Highest Level Delays counter is measured.

If the flow control timer is in T1 running status, the event is ignored and the times the trigger event is
ignored is measured.
If the flow control timer in T1 running status expires, the timer is triggered again and the timer length is
T2-T1. The status of the flow control timer is changed to T1 stopped and T2 running status.
In T1 stopped and T2 running status, if the event that can trigger AGCH flow control occurs, the cell
flow control timer is triggered again. The timer length is T1. The status of the flow control timer is
changed to T1 running. If the timer expires, the flow control level decreases by one and the number of
times the flow control level decreases is measured.
z

If the flow control level is not zero after the decrease, the cell flow control timer is triggered again.
The timer length is T2. The status of the flow control timer remains the same.

If the flow control level becomes zero after the decrease, the status of the flow control timer is
changed to T1 and T2 stopped.

Trigger Point
The BSC detects that all the SDCCHs are busy when sending an IMM ASS REJ message. The
measurement is triggered if T1 stops and the flow control has not reached the highest level.

Formula
None.

12.3.10 Decreases of Flow Control Levels


Counter
L3188I: Decreases of Flow Control Levels

Meaning
Cell flow control is performed through double timers. When a trigger event occurs, the event
is ignored if T1 is running. If T1 is not running, the flow control level increases by one unless
the flow control has already reached the highest level. T1 and T2 (T2 > T1) are triggered. If
T2 expires, the flow control level decreases by one. If the flow control level is not zero after
the decrease, T2 is triggered again. The number of the times the flow control level decreases
is the number of the times T2 expires.
This counter measures the number of times the flow control level decreases.

Trigger Point
The measurement is triggered when T2 expires.

Formula
None.

Meaning
After an MS occupies a channel, the BTS sends an ERR IND message to the BSC because of
radio link errors. Call drops occur on the Um interface. When receiving the ERR IND
message with a cause value of timer T200 expired (N200+1) times (0x01), unsolicited DM
response, multiple frame established state (0x05), or sequence error (0x07) in it, the BSC
measures the call drop counters related to ERR IND. The measurement is based on the
channel type (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH), service type (signaling or traffic), and cause value.
After an MS occupies a channel, the BTS sends a CONN FAIL IND message to the BSC
because of radio link errors or hardware failure. Call drops occur on the Um interface. When

receiving the CONN FAIL IND message with a cause value of radio link failure (0x01),
handover access failure (0x02), OM intervention (0x07), or radio resource not available (0x21)
in it, the BSC measures the call drop counters related to CONN FAIL IND on the basis of the
channel type (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH), service type (signaling or traffic), and cause value.
In multiframe link setup status, the BTS sends a REL IND message to the BSC after receiving
the DISC frame from an MS. Call drops occur on the Um interface. The BSC measures the
call drop counters related to REL IND on the basis of the channel type (SDCCH, TCHF, or
TCHH), service type (signaling or traffic), and cause value.
After an MS occupies an SDCCH, it sends a measurement report to the network every 470 ms.
After an MS occupies a TCH, it sends a measurement report to the network every 480 ms. If
the BSC does not receive any measurement report within scheduled time (five minutes by
default), call drops occur on the Um interface. The BSC measures the call drop counters
related to no measurement reports based on the channel type (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH) and
the service type (signaling or traffic).
After an MS occupies a channel, the BTS sends a CONN FAIL IND message to the BSC
because of radio link connection failure. Call drops occur on the Um interface. When
receiving the CONN FAIL IND message with a cause equipment failure (0x20) or terrestrial
channel failure (0x22), the BSC measures the call drop counters related to hardware failure on
the basis of the channel type (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH), service type (signaling or traffic),
and cause value.
After an MS occupies a channel, the BSC measures the call drop counters related to
equipment failure on the basis of the channel type (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH) and the service
type (signaling or traffic) if a release procedure is initiated because of BSC internal errors.
After an MS occupies a channel, a forced handover is initiated but failed. If the release
procedure is required, the BSC measures the call drop counters related to the forced handover
based on the channel type (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH) and the service type (signaling or
traffic).
After an MS occupies a channel, a release procedure is initiated if the resource check fails.
The BSC measures the call drop counters related to the resource check based on the channel
type (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH) and the service type (signaling or traffic).
After a call is established, a conversation begins if the called party answers. If a call drop
occurs for a certain reason, the BSC measures the related call drop counters after a
conversation begins based on the channel type (TCHF or TCHH).
After a call is established, the BSC receives the CONN message from the called MS and the
CONN ACK message from the calling MS if the called party answers. The BSC measures the
counters related to successful connections based on the channel type (TCHF or TCHH).
After an MS occupies a channel, the BSC measures the counters related to clear requests sent
on the A interface on the basis of the channel type (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH), service type
(signaling or traffic), or status (stable or HO) when the BSC sends a CLR REQ message to the
MSC.

Trigger Point
The measurement of call drops is triggered when a call drop occurs. The measurement of
successful connections is triggered when the called party answers.

Formula
None.

12.8 Immediate Assignment Measurement per Cell


12.8.1 Overview
When an MS requires network services for reasons such as Mobile Originated Call (MOC),
Mobile Terminated Call (MTC), emergency call, call re-establishment, location updating,
packet call, and Location Measurement Unit (LMU)+Reserved, it sends the BTS a CHAN
REQ message on the RACH. After receiving this message, the BTS reports a CHAN RQD
message to the BSC.
After receiving the CHAN RQD message, the BSC assigns and activates a signaling channel
to the MS. If the BSC receives a CHAN ACTIV ACK message from the BTS, the signaling
channel is ready for the assignment. The BSC sends an IMM ASS CMD message, requesting

the MS to access the specified signaling channel. This signaling channel can be an SDCCH or
a TCH.
After receiving a FIRST SABM frame from the MS, the BTS sends an EST IND message to
the BSC.
After receiving the EST IND message that carries an MM message (CM SERV REQ message,
LOC UPD REQ message, IMSI DTCH message, PAG RSP message, CM RE-EST REQ
message), the BSC requests the MSC to establish the A interface connection and transparently
transmits the MM message to the MSC.

A3039J: SDCCH Seizures for Speech Service

Meaning
In the immediate assignment procedure, an MS reports a FIRST SABM frame to the BTS on
the seized signaling channel (SDCCH, TCHF, or TCHH). Through this frame, the MS notifies
the BTS that the radio link layer has entered the multiframe link setup state. The BTS returns
a UA frame to the MS and sends the BSC an EST IND message to notify the BSC that the
link is established on the Um interface.
After link setup on the air interface, counter A3039J: SDCCH Seizures for Speech Service is
measured for speed service.
In the immediate assignment procedure, the BSC sends an IMM ASS CMD message to an MS
and triggers a timer. If no EST IND message is received within scheduled time (10 seconds by
default), the BSC measures the counters related to the timeout of call setup indications.

Trigger Point
As shown in Figure 12-1 (C), the measurement related to call setup indications is triggered
when the BSC receives an EST IND message from the BTS where the target cell is located.
This measurement is based on the channel type, the value of the service request message, and
the number of seized SDCCHs for speech service.
As shown in Figure 12-3 (A), the BSC sends an IMM ASS CMD message in the target cell.
The measurement related to the timeout of call setup indications is triggered if no EST IND
message is received within scheduled time. This measurement is based on the channel type.

Meaning
In the immediate assignment procedure where an MS requests for connection setup, the MS
establishes an RR connection with the BSS first, and then sends a CM SERV REQ message
on the MM layer. The BSS transparently transmits this message to the NSS. If the NSS does
not support or cannot respond to the service request due to congestion, network failure, illegal
MS or other causes, the MSC sends a CM SERV REJ message to the MS and the BSC
transparently transmits this message.

Full rate TCH channels in a multislot configuration, changes by the BSS of the number of TCHs or
the used radio interface rate per channel not allowed after first channel allocation as a result of the
request

Huawei BSC supports the first six channel types.

Trigger Point
In the immediate assignment procedure, the BSS assigns a signaling channel to an MS. After
the RR connection between the MS and the BSS is established, the MS establishes the MM
and the CC connections with the MSC through the signaling channel. Based on the CC
connection request from the MS, the MSC assigns terrestrial resources to the MS and
specifies available channel types in an ASS REQ message.
The measurement is triggered when the BSC receives an ASS REQ message from the MSC,
as shown in Figure 12-5 (A). The measurement is based on the channel type and the access
cause carried in the message.

Meaning
The counters measure the number of failed assignments due to different causes.
In the assignment procedure, the MSC sends an ASS REQ message to the BSS. The BSS
selects a traffic channel or signaling channel. The assignment may fail due to various causes.
An assignment may fail due to any of the following causes:
z

The BSS detects that there are no traffic channels or signaling channels available and sends an ASS
FAIL message to the MSC.

The MS sends an ASS FAIL message to the BSS directly.

No ASS CMP message is received within scheduled time after the BSS receives an ASS REQ
message from the MSC.

The BSS determines that the message is in invalid state.

The BSS receives an invalid message.

The request for terrestrial resources fails.

The CIC is unavailable or is already allocated.

A failure occurs on the A interface.

The MSC sends a clear command.

Trigger Point
If the MSC receives no ASS CMP message after sending an ASS REQ message to the BSS,
the measurement of Failed Assignments per Cell is triggered. The BSS sends an ASS FAIL

message to the MSC. The measurement is based on the failure cause, procedure, and assigned
channel type.
z

In the assignment procedure (including or excluding directed retry), the related


measurement is triggered when the assignment procedure fails. The measurement is
based on the access cause and the assigned channel type.

In the assignment procedure, the measurement of Failed Assignments (Invalid State) is


triggered when the BSC detects that the status of the received message does not match
the current procedure.

In the assignment procedure, the related measurement is triggered when the BSC detects
that errors occur in the decoding of the received ASS REQ message. The errors may be
of the channel type, CIC, and layer 3 header information.

After the BSC receives an ASS REQ message from the MSC, the measurement of Failed
Assignments (First Assignment, Terrestrial Resource Request Failed) is triggered when
the BSC fails to request the terrestrial resources specified in the message.

In the assignment procedure, the related measurement is triggered when the BSC detects
that the CIC carried in the received ASS REQ message is unavailable or is already
allocated.

In the assignment procedure after the A interface link is established, the MSC sends an
ASS REQ message to the BSC. The measurement of Failed Assignments (A-Interface
Failure) is triggered when the MSC sends a CLEAR CMD message or a DISCONNECT
message to the BSC because errors occur on the A interface.

In the assignment procedure, the MSC sends an ASS REQ message to the BSC. The
measurement of Failed Assignments (Clear Commands Sent by MSC) is triggered when
the MSC sends a CLEAR CMD message before the BSC responds to the ASS REQ
message.

In the first assignment, directed retry, re-assignment, or re-assignment directed retry


procedure, the related measurement is triggered when the BSC detects that there are no
available channel resources.

In the first assignment or the directed retry procedure, the BSC sends an ASS CMD
message, and then triggers an assignment timer. The related measurement is triggered
when the timer expires.

In the assignment procedure, the BSC receives an ASS REQ message from the MSC. If
the first assignment fails, the MS reconnects to the old channel and sends an ASS FAIL
message to the BSC. The BSC then initiates the two procedures described previously and
the measurement is triggered when the assignment fails.

Meaning
In the immediate assignment procedure, if there are no idle SDCCHs but idle TCHs to be
assigned and if the immediate assignment of TCHs is allowed, the assigned full rate or half
rate TCH is used as a signaling channel. There is no need to assign a TCH during the
assignment. The assigned full rate or half rate TCH is converted to a speech channel through a
Mode Modify procedure.
The counters measure the number of times the BSC sends a CHAN MODE MODIFY
message to the MS after receiving the MODE MODIFY ACK message from the BTS.
Together with Completed Mode Modify Procedures (TCH), the counters can be used to
calculate the success rate of Mode Modify procedures.

Trigger Point
As shown in Figure 12-8 (E1), after receiving the ASS REQ message from the MSC, the BSC
checks the CHANNEL TYPE carried in the message and initiates the Mode Modify procedure
if the CHANNEL TYPE and the type of the channel assigned in the assignment procedure
meet either of the following conditions:
z

Same type of channel rate, different speech data indications

Same type of channel rate and speech data indication, different speech coding algorithms
or data transparent transmission indications

If the Mode Modify procedure is performed in the assignment procedure, the BSC sends a
MODE MODIFY message to the BTS. After receiving a MODE MODIFY ACK message
from the BTS, the BSC sends a CHAN MODE MODIFY message to the MS.
The measurement is triggered when the BSC sends a CHAN MODE MODIFY message to the
MS.

12.10 Intra-Cell Handover Measurement per Cell


12.10.1 Overview
After seizing a dedicated channel, an MS sends the BSC measurement reports periodically.
After receiving the measurement reports, the BSC uses the handover algorithm to decide
whether a handover is required or not based on the measurement reports. If a handover is
required and the source cell (current cell) is also the target cell, an intra-cell handover is
initiated.
The Intra-cell handover procedure is as follows:
Step 1 The BSC sends a CHAN ACTIV message to the BTS where the target cell is located. This
message is used to activate the specified channel in the target cell.
Step 2 After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK message, the BSC requests for channel resources. If
the request succeeds, the BSC sends the MS an HO CMD message, requesting the MS to
initiate a handover from the source cell to the target cell.
Step 3 The MS sends the target BTS a HO ACC message to attempt to access a new cell.
Step 4 The target BTS forwards this message through an HO DETECT message to the BSC and
sends a PHY INFO message to the MS.
Step 5 The MS sends a FIRST SABM frame to the target BTS and the target BTS sends an EST IND
message to the BSC, indicating that the MS has successfully accessed the target cell. The MS
also sends an HO CMP message to the BSC.
Step 6 The BSC sends an HO PERFORMED message to the MSC.

Internal Intra-Cell Handover Requests due to Uplink Interference and CH3036B: Internal
Intra-Cell Handover Requests due to Downlink Interferenc are measured respectively.
In the internal handover procedure, the BSC selects the idle neighbor cell (the neighbor cell in the same
BSC but different BM is assumed to be idle) as the preferred target cell. If all the neighbor cells of the
source cell are busy, the first cell on the list of candidate neighbor cells is selected. The handover is
performed even if this cell is busy. If the selected neighbor cell is also the source cell, the related counter
is measured.
In the concentric cell handover (also a kind of intra-cell handover), no handover is performed if the
target underlaid subcell or overlaid subcell is congested. No counters will be measured.

Trigger Point
As shown in Figure 12-10 (A), the measurement is triggered when the BSC decides that an
intra-cell handover is required based on measurement reports. The measurement is based on

SDCCH

TCHF

TCHH

Failed Intra-Cell Handovers (Reconnection to Old Channels)


As shown in Figure 12-11, BSC sends an HO CMD message to the MS and starts a timer
to wait for an HO CMP message. Before the timer expires, the MS reconnects to the old
channel and sends the BSC an HO FAIL message on the old channel. The measurement
is triggered when the BSC receives the HO FAIL message. The measurement is based on
the failure cause carried in the message.
The message carries any of the following failure causes:
Abnormal release, unspecified
Abnormal release, channel unacceptable
Abnormal release, timer expired
Abnormal release, no activity on the radio path
Preemptive release
Handover failed, timing advance out of range
Channel mode unavailable

the MSC does not allow the conversion of channel types.
For an AMR call, when the BSC decides that an intra-cell handover (TCHH to TCHF) is
required based on the handover algorithm, the BSC ignores the handover indication and
measures Internal Intra-Cell Handovers Not Initiated (AMR) (TCHH-TCHF) if the MSC does
not allow the conversion of channel types.
For an AMR call, when the BSC decides that an intra-cell handover (TCHF to TCHH) is
required based on the handover algorithm, the BSC measures Internal Intra-Cell Handover
Requests (AMR) (TCHF-TCHH) if the handover is allowed.
For an AMR call, when the BSC decides that an intra-cell handover (TCHH to TCHF) is
required based on the handover algorithm, the BSC measures Internal Intra-Cell Handover
Requests (AMR) (TCHH-TCHF) if the handover is allowed.
For an AMR call, if the BSC decides that an intra-cell handover (TCHF to TCHH) is required
based on the handover algorithm, the BSC measures Internal Intra-Cell Handover Commands
(AMR) (TCHF-TCHH) when the handover is initiated and a handover command is sent.
For an AMR call, if the BSC decides that an intra-cell handover (TCHH to TCHF) is required
based on the handover algorithm, the BSC measures Internal Intra-Cell Handover Commands

For an AMR call, if the BSC decides that an intra-cell handover (TCHF to TCHH) is required
based on the handover algorithm, the BSC measures Failed Internal Intra-Cell Handovers
(AMR) (TCHF-TCHH) when the handover is initiated but the handover fails due to a certain
cause.
For an AMR call, if the BSC decides that an intra-cell handover (TCHH to TCHF) is required
based on the handover algorithm, the BSC measures Failed Internal Intra-Cell Handovers
(AMR) (TCHH-TCHF) when the handover is initiated but the handover fails due to a certain
cause.
The AMR is a kind of speech codec algorithm. It can improve the speech quality by adjusting the
encoding rate based on the radio environment.
To control the call performance in a flexible way and to maximize the network capacity, the BSC needs
a handover algorithm as follows:
z

If an AMR call seizes a full rate channel and its RQI is always higher than the defined threshold of
the handover from the TCHF to the TCHH in a period of time, the handover from the TCHF to the
TCHH is triggered.

If an AMR call seizes a half rate channel and its RQI is always lower than the defined threshold of
the handover from the TCHH to the TCHF in a period of time, the handover from the TCHH to the
TCHF is triggered.

The algorithm is controlled by the switches of both the intra-cell handover permit and the intra-cell
full ratehalf rate handover permit. Because the BTS reports the RQI for only AMR calls, the AMR
handover is used for only AMR calls.

Trigger Point
For the description of the trigger points of the counters, refer to the trigger points of the
common handovers.

Formula
None.

12.11 Incoming Internal Inter-Cell Handover


Measurement per Cell
12.11.1 Overview
After an MS seizes a dedicated channel, it sends measurement reports to the BSC periodically.
After receiving the measurement reports, the BSC uses the handover algorithm to decide
whether a handover is required or not on the basis of the factors such as the cell load,
concentric cell, signal interference, and measurement reports. If a handover is required and
the source cell (current cell) and the target cell are two cells in a BSC, an internal inter-cell
handover is initiated.
The internal inter-cell handover procedure is as follows:
Step 1 The BSC sends a CHAN ACTIV message to the BTS where the target cell is located. This
message is used to activate the specified channel in the target cell.
Step 2 After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK message, the BSC requests for channel resources. If
the request succeeds, the BSC sends the MS an HO CMD message, requesting the MS
through the source cell to initiate a handover from the source cell to the target cell.
Step 3 The MS sends the target BTS a HO ACC message to attempt to access a new cell.
Step 4 The target BTS forwards this message through an HO DETECT message to the BSC and
sends a PHY INFO message to the MS.
Step 5 The MS sends a FIRST SABM frame to the target BTS and the target BTS sends the BSC an
EST IND message, indicating that the MS has successfully accessed the target cell. The MS
also sends an HO CMP message to the BSC.
Step 6 The BSC sends an HO PERFORMED message to the MSC.
----End
The incoming internal inter-cell handover is part of the internal inter-cell handover. It refers to
the internal inter-cell handover procedure performed in the target cell (the cell where the MS
is located after the handover). The source cell (the cell where the MS is located before the
handover) and the target cell can be two cells in a BTS or two cells in two BTSs controlled by
one BSC.
Figure 12-12 shows the incoming internal inter-cell handover procedure.

12.12 Outgoing Internal Inter-Cell Handover


Measurement per Cell
12.12.1 Overview
Outgoing Internal Inter-Cell Handover Measurement per cell is used to measure the handover
of the cells controlled by one BSC. The measurement is performed in the source cell.
The outgoing internal inter-cell handover is initiated by measurement reports or by
assignment requests sent from the MSC. The descriptions of these two types of handovers are
as follows:

Outgoing internal inter-cell handover initiated by measurement reports (excluding


directed retry)
After an MS seizes a dedicated channel, it sends measurement reports to the BSC periodically.
After receiving the measurement reports, the BSC uses the handover algorithm to decide
whether a handover is required or not on the basis of the factors such as the cell load,
concentric cell, signal interference, and measurement reports. If a handover is required and
the source cell (current cell) and the target cell are two cells in a BSC, an internal inter-cell
handover is initiated.
The procedure is as follows:
Step 1 The BSC sends a CHAN ACTIV message to the BTS where the target cell is located. This
message is used to activate the specified channel in the target cell.
Step 2 After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK message, the BSC requests for speech service
resources. If the request succeeds, the BSC sends the MS an HO CMD message, requesting
the MS to initiate a handover from the source cell to the target cell.
Step 3 The MS sends the target BTS a HO ACC message to attempt to access a new cell.
Step 4 The target BTS forwards this message through an HO DETECT message to the BSC and
sends a PHY INFO message to the MS.
Step 5 The MS sends a FIRST SABM frame to the target BTS and the target BTS sends an EST IND
message to the BSC, indicating that the MS has successfully accessed the target cell. The MS
also sends an HO CMP message to the BSC.
Step 6 The BSC sends an HO PERFORMED message to the MSC.
----End
The outgoing internal inter-cell handover is part of the internal inter-cell handover. It refers to
the internal inter-cell handover procedure performed in the source cell (the cell where the MS
is located before the handover). The source cell and the target cell (the cell where the MS is
located after the handover) can be two cells in a BTS or two cells in two BTSs controlled by
one BSC.
Figure 12-14 shows the procedure of outgoing internal inter-cell handover (excluding directed
retry).

Outgoing internal inter-cell handover initiated by the assignment request sent from the
MSC (directed retry)
The procedure is as follows:
Step 1 When an MS needs to initiate a call, it sends a CHAN RQD message to the BSC through the
BTS.
Step 2 The BSC requests for an SDCCH or TCH signaling channel, and sends a CHAN ACTIV
message to the BTS. After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK message from the BTS, the BSC
sends the MS an IMM ASS CMD message on the signaling channel, requesting the MS to
access the network on this signaling channel.
Step 3 After receiving an EST IND message from the MS, the BSC encapsulates the CM SERV
REQ message carried in the EST IND message into the CR message and forwards it to the
MSC. After the MSC returns a CC message, the communication between the MS and the
MSC is established on the MM layer.
Step 4 After the messages CM SERV ACCEPT, SETUP, and CALL PROCEEDING are sent, the
MSC sends an ASS REQ message to the BSC and the BSC analyzes the information such as
cell load to select an assignment mode (normal assignment, mode modification, directed
retry). If current cell load is too high, the BSC decides to initiate a directed retry procedure.
Step 5 The BSC sends a CHAN ACTIV message to the target cell. After receiving a CHAN ACTIV
ACK message, the BSC requests for speech service resources.
Step 6 If the request succeeds, the BSC sends an HO CMD message to the MS, and the MS sends an
HO ACC message to attempt to access a new cell.

Step 7 The BTS sends an HO DETECT message to the BSC and sends a PHY INFO message to the
MS.
Step 8 The MS sends a FIRST SABM to access the network. The BTS sends an EST IND message
to the BSC and a UA frame to the MS. The MS sends an HO CMP message to the BSC.
Step 9 The BSC sends an ASS CMP message to the MSC and completes other signaling processing.

Outgoing Internal Inter-Cell Handover Requests (Excluding Directed Retry)


The BSC uses the handover algorithm to decide whether a handover is required or not
based on the measurement reports. If a handover is required and the source cell (current
cell) and the target cell are two cells controlled by one BSC, the BSC initiates an internal
inter-cell handover.
The counter measures the number of outgoing internal inter-cell handover requests
initiated by the BSC. The measurement is based on the channel type, the handover cause,
and the crossing of frequency bands.
Along with Outgoing Internal Inter-Cell Handover Commands per Cell and Failed
Outgoing Internal Inter-Cell Handovers per Cell, the counter shows the performance of
outgoing internal inter-cell handovers. Along with Incoming Internal Inter-Cell
Handover Measurement per Cell, the counter shows the performance of internal intercell handovers.
The channel involved in the measurement is of the following types:

SDCCH

TCHF

TCHH

The handover causes consist of the following:

Uplink quality

Downlink quality

Uplink strength

Downlink strength

Timing advance

Better cell

Load

Rapid level drop

MSC intervention

OM intervention

Failed Outgoing Internal Inter-Cell Handovers (Reconnection to Old Channels,


Excluding Directed Retry)
As shown in Figure 12-16, in the outgoing internal inter-cell handover procedure, the
BSC sends an HO CMD message to the MS through the source cell and initiates a timer
to wait for an HO CMP message. The measurement is triggered when the MS reconnects
to the old channel and sends an HO FAIL message on the old channel. The measurement
is based on the failure cause.
The failure causes consist of the following:

Abnormal release, unspecified

Abnormal release, channel unacceptable

Abnormal release, timer expired

Abnormal release, no activity on the radio path

Preemptive release

Handover failed, timing advance out of range

Channel mode unavailable

12.13 Incoming External Inter-Cell Handover


Measurement per Cell
12.13.1 Overview
After the BSC receives measurement reports from the MS, it uses the handover algorithm to
decide whether a handover is required or not on the basis of the factors such as the cell load,
signal quality, signal interference, and measurement reports. If a handover is required and the
source cell (current cell) and the target cell are controlled by two BSCs, an external inter-cell
handover is initiated.
The incoming external inter-cell handover is part of the external inter-cell handover. It refers
to the external inter-cell handover performed in the target cell.
In the following topics, the BSC where the source cell is located is called BSC1 and the BSC where the
target cell is located is called BSC2. The BTS where the source cell is located is called BTS1 and the
BTS where the target cell is located is called BTS2

The external inter-cell handover procedure is as follows:


Step 1 The handover algorithm in BSC1 notifies BSC1 to initiate an external inter-cell handover
based on the factors such as the measurement reports received from the MS, current cell load,
and the cell load of the neighbor cell.
Step 2 BSC1 sends the MSC an HO RQD message, requesting the MSC of the target cell.
Step 3 Based on the target cell, the MSC finds BSC2 and sends an HO REQ message to BSC2.
Step 4 BSC2 requests for a traffic channel from the target cell. After the request succeeds, BSC2
sends a CHAN ACTIV message to the target cell. After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK
message from the target cell, BSC2 requests for speech service resources.
Step 5 After the request succeeds, BSC2 sends the MSC an HO REQ ACK message to notify the
MSC that the target cell is ready for the MS access.
Step 6 The MSC sends an HO CMD message to BSC1 and BSC1 forwards this message to the MS.
This message is used to request the MS to access the target cell.
Step 7 The MS sends the target cell an HO ACC message to attempt to access the new cell. BTS2
sends an HO DETECT message to BSC2 and a PHY INFO message to the MS.
Step 8 The MS sends a FIRST SABM frame to BTS2. After receiving this frame, BTS2 sends an
EST IND message to BSC2 and returns a UA frame to the MS.
Step 9 After the MS accesses the target cell, it sends an HO CMP message to BSC2 and BSC2
forwards this message to the MSC.
Step 10 The MSC sends a CLR CMD message to BSC1 and the BSC1 releases the terrestrial
resources in the source cell.
Step 11 BSC1 sends a CLR CMP message to the MSC.
----End
The measurement of the incoming external inter-cell handover is performed in the target cell.
Figure 12-18 shows the incoming external inter-cell handover.

Failed Incoming External Inter-Cell Handovers (Terrestrial Resource Request Failed,


CIC Unavailable, CIC Allocated)
BSC2 receives an HO REQ message from the MSC and decodes it. BSC2 then requests
for a channel from the target cell. If the request succeeds, BSC2 sends a CHAN ACTIV
message to the target cell. After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK message, BSC2
requests for the terrestrial resources and terrestrial link resources about speech services.

If the request for terrestrial resources fails, the measurement of Failed Incoming
External Inter-Cell Handovers (Terrestrial Resource Request Failed) is triggered.

The CIC resources on the A interface is a key factor of the terrestrial resource request.
The MSC sends BSC2 an HO REQ message that carries the CIC. If BSC2 detects
that the CIC is unavailable, the measurement of Failed Incoming External Inter-Cell
Handovers (Terrestrial Resource Request Failed, CIC Unavailable is triggered.

If BSC2 detects that the CIC is already allocated, the measurement of Failed
Incoming External Inter-Cell Handovers (Terrestrial Resource Request Failed, CIC
Allocated) is triggered.

12.14 Outgoing External Inter-Cell Handover


Measurement per Cell
12.14.1 Overview
Outgoing External Inter-Cell Handover Measurement per Cell can be classified into Outgoing
External Inter-Cell Handover (Excluding Directed Retry) and Outgoing External Inter-Cell
Handover (Directed Retry).
Outgoing external inter-cell handover (excluding directed retry)
As shown in Figure 12-20, after the BSC receives measurement reports from the MS, it uses
the handover algorithm to decide whether a handover is required or not. If a handover is
required and the source cell (the current cell where the MS is located) and the target cell (the
cell where the MS is located after the handover) are controlled by two BSCs, an external
inter-cell handover is initiated.
The measurement of outgoing external inter-cell handover (excluding directed retry) is
performed in the source cell.
The procedure of the outgoing external inter-cell handover (excluding directed retry) is as
follows:
Step 1 BSC1 initiates an external inter-cell handover based on the handover algorithm.
Step 2 BSC1 sends an HO RQD message to the MSC.
Step 3 Based on the HO RQD message and the relation between the cell and the BSC, the MSC finds
BSC2 and sends an HO REQ message to BSC2.
Step 4 BSC2 requests for a traffic channel from the target cell. After the request succeeds, BSC2
sends a CHAN ACTIV message to the target cell. After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK
message from the target cell, BSC2 requests for speech service resources. After the request
succeeds, BSC2 sends the MSC an HO REQ ACK message to notify the MSC that the target
cell is ready for the MS access.
Step 5 The MSC sends an HO CMD message to BSC1 and BSC1 forwards this message to the MS.
This message is used to request the MS to access the target cell.
Step 6 The MS sends the target cell an HO ACC message to attempt to access the target cell. BTS2
sends an HO DETECT message to BSC2 and a PHY INFO message to the MS.
Step 7 The MS sends a FIRST SABM frame to BTS2. After receiving this frame, BTS2 sends an
EST IND message to BSC2 and returns a UA frame to the MS.
Step 8 After the MS accesses the target cell, it sends an HO CMP message to BSC2 and BSC2
forwards this message to the MSC.

resources in the source cell.

Outgoing external inter-cell handover (directed retry)


The procedure is as follows:
Step 1 As shown in Figure 12-21, the MS sends a CHAN RQD message to BTS1 and BTS1
forwards it to BSC1.
Step 2 BSC1 requests for a signaling channel from the source cell. If the request succeeds, BSC1
sends a CHAN ACTIV message to the source cell. After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK
message from the source cell, BSC1 sends an IMM ASS CMD to the MS through the source
cell.
Step 3 The MS sends a FIRST ASBM frame to BTS1 and BTS1 returns a UA frame. After receiving
the FIRST ASBM frame, BTS1 sends an EST IND message to BSC1.
Step 4 BSC1 extracts the CM SERV REQ message carried in the EST IND message, encapsulates it
into a connection request (CR) message, and sends the CR message to the MSC.

Step 5 The MSC returns a Connection Confirm (CC) message. The MM connection between the MS
and the MSC is established.
Step 6 After the transmission of the CM SERV ACCEPT, SETUP, and CALL PROCEEDING
messages, the MSC sends an ASSIGN REQ message to BSC1.
Step 7 BSC1 selects a kind of assignment procedure (normal assignment procedure, mode modify
procedure, directed retry procedure) based on the load of the source cell.
Step 8 If the subsequent services are unavailable or the subsequent services affect the existing
services because the cell load is too high, BSC1 selects the directed retry procedure. If the
source cell and the target cell are controlled by two BSCs, the directed retry is performed
through an external inter-cell handover procedure. If the measurement is performed in the
source cell, the outgoing external inter-cell handover procedure is initiated.
Step 9 BSC1 sends an HO RQD message to the MSC to initiate an external inter-cell handover.
Step 10 Based on the HO RQD message and the relation between the cell and the BSC, the MSC finds
BSC2 and sends an HO REQ message to BSC2.
Step 11 BSC2 requests for a channel from the target cell. After the request succeeds, BSC2 sends a
CHAN ACTIV message to the target cell. After receiving a CHAN ACTIV ACK message
from the target cell, BSC2 requests for speech service resources. After the request succeeds,
BSC2 sends the MSC an HO REQ ACK message to notify the MSC that the target cell is
ready for the MS access.
Step 12 The MSC sends an HO CMD message to BSC1 and BSC1 forwards this message to the MS.
This message is used to request the MS to access the target cell.
Step 13 The MS sends the target cell an HO ACC message to attempt to access the target cell. BTS2
sends an HO DETECT message to BSC2 and a PHY INFO message to the MS.
Step 14 BSC2 sends an HO DETECT message to the MSC. The MS sends a FIRST SABM frame to
BTS2. After receiving this frame, BTS2 returns a UA frame to the MS and sends an EST IND
message to BSC2.
Step 15 The MS sends an HO CMP message to BSC2 and BSC2 forwards this message to the MSC.
Step 16 The MSC sends a CLR CMD message to BSC1 and the BSC1 releases the terrestrial
resources in the source cell.
Step 17 BSC1 sends a CLR CMP message to the MSC.

Failed Outgoing External Inter-Cell Handovers (Excluding Directed Retry)


In the outgoing external inter-cell handover (excluding directed retry) procedure, the
BSC measures the related counter when the handover fails. The measurement is based on
the crossing of frequency bands, channel type, different signaling points, reject cause,
RR cause, clear command sent by MSC and A-interface failure, timer expired, and
handover cause.
Along with Outgoing External Inter-Cell Handover Requests per Cell and Outgoing
External Inter-Cell Handover Commands per Cell, the counters show the performance of
outgoing external inter-cell handovers. Along with Incoming External Inter-Cell
Handover Measurement per Cell, the counters show the performance of external intercell handovers.
The crossing of frequency bands is of the following types:

900/850 to 900/850

1800/1900 to 1800/1900

900/850 to 1800/1900

12.15 Incoming Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover


Measurement per Cell
12.15.1 Overview
The conventions used in this section are as follows:
z

The MSC of the local system is referred to as MSC 1, and that of another system is referred to as
MSC 2.

The BSC of the local system is referred to as BSC 1.

The BTS of the local system is referred to as BTS 1.

The procedure for incoming inter-RAT inter-cell handover is as follows:


MSC 2 sends a PERFORM HO message to MSC 1. Based on the information of the target
cell in this message and the mapping between cells and BSCs in the MSC 1 data configuration,
MSC 1 finds out the corresponding BSC, that is, BSC 1, and sends an HO ERQ message to
BSC 1. Based on the information of the target cell, BSC 1 requests channel resources from the
target cell. After the request succeeds, BSC 1 sends a CHAN ACTIV message to the target
cell. BTS 1 sends a CHAN ACTIV ACK message from the target cell to BSC 1. BSC 1
requests the resources for voice service. After the request succeeds, BSC 1 sends an HO REQ
ACK message to MSC 1.
After receiving an HO CMD message from another system, the MS sends an HO ACC
message to BTS 1, attempting to access the new system from the target cell. BTS 1 reports an
HO DETECT message to MSC 1 through BSC 1. At the same time, BTS 1 sends a PHY
INFO message to the MS. The MS sends a FIRST SABM message to access the network.
BTS 1 sends an EST IND message to BSC 1. At the same time, BTS 1 responds the MS with
a UA message. After accessing the network, the MS sends an HO CMP message to MSC 1
through the target cell.
Here, the incoming inter-RAT inter-cell handover is complete.

The conventions used in this section are as follows:
z

The BSC of the source cell is referred to as BSC 2. The BSC of the target cell is referred to as BSC 1.

The BTS corresponds to BSC 2 is referred to as BTS 2.

The MSC corresponds to BSC 2 is referred to as MSC 2.

Outgoing Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover Measurement per Cell has the following two types:
z

Outgoing Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover Measurement per Cell (Excluding Directed


Retry)
The MS sends a measurement report to BSC 2. Based on the current load and signal
interference of the cell as well as the signal quality and RX/TX level in the measurement
report, BSC 2 decides whether to perform a handover. If deciding to perform a handover,
BSC 2 sends a handover triggering indication to the corresponding processing module. If
the target cell is in another system, BSC 2 initiates an inter-RAT handover outgoing from
the source cell.
BSC 2 sends an HO RQD message to MSC 2, requesting MSC 2 to notify the other
system. Based on its data configuration, MSC 2 finds out the corresponding MSC, that is,
MSC 1, and a handover request to MSC 1. After preparing for the handover, the other
system notifies MSC 2. MSC 2 sends an HO CMD message to BSC 2, requesting BSC 2
to notify the MS. BSC 2 sends an HO CMD message to the MS through the source cell,
requesting the MS to access the network in the target cell.
After the access succeeds, MSC 1 notifies MSC 2 that the incoming inter-RAT inter-cell
handover is complete. MSC 2 sends a CLR CMD message to BSC 2. After instructing
the source cell to release related resources, BSC 2 responds MSC 2 with a CLR CMP
message.
Here, the outgoing inter-RAT inter-cell handover is complete.

Outgoing Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover Measurement per Cell (Directed Retry)


After receiving an ASSIGN REQ message from MSC 2, BSC 2 decides the assignment
mode based on the load of the cell. There are three assignment procedures: normal
assignment procedure, directed retry procedure, and assignment modification procedure.
If the load of the cell is so high that the cell cannot admit a new service or that a new
service will affect current services, BSC 2 decides to perform a directed retry. If the
target cell selected during the directed retry belongs to another system, BSC 2 initiates
an inter-RAT inter-cell handover procedure outgoing from the source cell.
BSC 2 sends an HO RQD message to MSC 2, requesting MSC 2 to notify the other
system. Based on its data configuration, MSC 2 finds out the corresponding MSC, that is,
MSC 1, and a handover request to MSC 1. After preparing for the handover, the other
system notifies MSC 2. MSC 2 sends an HO CMD message to BSC 2, requesting BSC 2
to notify the MS. BSC 2 sends an HO CMD message to the MS through the source cell,
requesting the MS to access the network in the target cell. After the access succeeds,
MSC 1 notifies MSC 2 that the incoming inter-RAT inter-cell handover is complete.
MSC 2 sends a CLR CMD message to BSC 2. After instructing the source cell to release
related resources, BSC 2 responds MSC 2 with a CLR CMP message.
Here, the outgoing inter-RAT inter-cell handover during directed retry is complete.

commands that are sent by BSC 2 to the MS through the source cell. Along with Outgoing
Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover Requests per Cell and Failed Outgoing External Inter-Cell
Handovers per Cell, this type of counters can help you to better understand the situation of
outgoing inter-RAT inter-cell handovers.
Along with Incoming Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover Measurement per Cell, this type of
counters can help you to better understand the situation of all outgoing inter-RAT inter-cell
handovers.
The channel type may be SDCCH, TCHH, or TCHF. The directed retry procedure applies to
only traffic channels.

Trigger Point
The measurement is triggered at point B as shown in Figure 12-26 and Figure 12-27, that is,
when BSC 2 sends an HO CMD message to the MS through the source cell. Here, the
handover includes directed retry. The measurement is based on the channel type.

Formula
None.

Meaning
This type of counters measures the number of failed outgoing inter-RAT inter-cell handovers
based on the channel type and failure cause. Here, the handover excludes directed retry.
Along with Outgoing Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover Requests per Cell and Outgoing InterRAT Inter-Cell Handover Commands per Cell, this type of counters can help you to better
understand the situation of outgoing inter-RAT inter-cell handovers.
Along with Incoming Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover Measurement per Cell, this type of
counters can help you to better understand the situation of all outgoing inter-RAT inter-cell
handovers.
The channel type may be SDCCH, TCHH, or TCHF. The directed retry procedure applies to
only traffic channels.
The failure cause may be one of the following:
z

Handover request rejected

Reconnected to the old channel, excluding directed retry
