15.6.1 Handovers per Erlanghour
Long name:

(a) Handover per Erlanghour

Short name:

(a) HOperErlh

Description:

This indicator will give you the ratio between successful Handovers and the traffic
in Erlanghour per cell.
Aggregation over all neighbors of the observed cell and all HO causes is
performed

Formula:

(a) HOperErlh =
n

SINTHITA[1..18] SINTHINT[1..12] SUINBHDO[1..11] i


i 0

SUOISHDO[1..11]
j 0

MEBUSTCH 1..10

60
Granularit y

with n for the number of GSM neighbourcell relation (n=0..31)


with m for the number of UMTS neighbourcell relation (n=0..63)
i represents the adjacent relationship between the observed and i-th neighbour
GSM cell
j represents the adjacent relationship between the observed and j-th neighbour
UMTS cell
MEBUSTCH[1,2] are defined for standard cell, MEBUSTCH[3..6] are defined for
the concentric cell and MEBUSTCH[7..10] are defined for the extended cell
Used param.: SINTHITA[1..18], SINTHINT [1..12], SUINBHDO[1..11], SUOISHDO[1..11],

Elem. Object: Cell
Unit:

None

Remarks:

SDCCH handovers are also incremented in these counters used for this
formula and that fact can lead to systematic errors.
Intersystem HO to UMTS are considered
