for the purpose of service requirements. Normal release means that the release procedure is initiated by MS or MSC. and sends a Clear Command to BSC. 6-2 Huawei Technologies Proprietary Issue 01 (2007-03-15) . Step 2 MSC returns a Release message to MS.M900/M1800 Base Station Subsystem Signaling Analysis Manual 6 Release Procedure 6.1 Overview Common release procedure is classified into normal release procedure and local release procedure. Step 4 Upon receipt of the Release Complete message.2 Normal Release Procedure Signaling procedure After being normally accessed to the network. 6. In the meantime. Figure 6-1 Release procedure initiated by MS BTS MS BSC MSC DISC (1) REL (2) REL CMP (3) Clear CMD (4) Channel REL (5) DISC (6) Deactive SACCH(8) Clear CMP (12) RLSD (13) RLSD CMP (14) UA (7) REL IND (9) RF Channel REL (10) RF Channel REL ACK (11) Step 1 After a call is completed. requesting that MS and BTS release the logical channels on Um interface. Local release means that the release procedure is initiated by BSC. and sends a Release Complete message to MSC. Step 3 MS releases MM connections. MSC releases MM connections. and the calling MS sends a Disconnect message to MSC. the caller hangs up. notifying it to release the occupied A interface resources and the logical channels on Um interface. Figure 6-1 shows the release procedure. such as hangup. it sends a Disconnect message to another calling MS. Step 5 BSC delivers the channel Release message to MS. MS can initiate the release procedure.

after assignment is completed. except these 3 messages. Step 14 BSC returns a RLSD Complete message to MSC. Step 9 After BTS receives the DISC frame from MS. BSC shall send the Clear Request message to MSC. Step 8 BSC sends a Deactivate SACCH message to BTS. Likewise. such as "Handover completed" or "Location update completed". Issue 01 (2007-03-15) Huawei Technologies Proprietary 6-3 . 1~3 are to release call connections. and then MSC shall deliver the Clear Command message. Step 10 BSC sends a RF Channel Release message to BTS. MS returns to the idle mode. Step 13 MSC sends a RLSD message to BSC. indicating that the logical channels have been released. BSC shall also initiate the local release procedure for the old channels. requesting that SACCH be deactivated. radio link failure or equipment fault. BTS returns a Release Indication message to BSC to indicate that MS has released the logic channel on radio interface. requesting the release of SCCP link connection. If the release is caused by Um interface message failure. requesting that the physical channels on Um interface be released. After the connections of CC layer and MM layer are released. after handover is completed. For the release procedure initiated by the network. Upon receipt of the UA frame. Step 12 BSC sends a Clear Complete message to MSC. indicating that the SCCP link connection has been released. Step 2 4~14 are to release radio resources. which are transparently transmitted in reverse directions. ----End Procedure explanation Step 1 In Figure 6-1. all the messages are the same as those in Figure 6-1. The procedure described in Figure 5-1 is a release procedure initiated by MS.3 BSC Local Release Procedure In the normal calling procedure. Figure 6-2 shows the release procedure. Step 11 BTS returns a Channel Release Acknowledge message to BSC. This message contains the call clearance cause values. the network will send a Clear Command message to BSC. Step 7 BTS sends a UA frame to MS for acknowledgement. BSC shall initiate the local release procedure for signaling channels. indicating that the physical channels on Um interface have been released. ----End 6.M900/M1800 Base Station Subsystem Signaling Analysis Manual 6 Release Procedure Step 6 MS sends a DISC frame to BTS. requesting the release of SCCP signaling links.

" 6-4 Huawei Technologies Proprietary Issue 01 (2007-03-15) .4 Internal Handling of BSC Refer to 6.2 "Normal Release Procedure. Step 2 BSC delivers a Release Request message to BTS. and shall not report the Release Acknowledge message to BSC until it receives the UA (or DM) frame sent by MS. the release procedure is unrelated to MS. BTS returns a Release Acknowledge message to BSC. ----End 6. Step 3 Upon receipt of the Release Request message. If the Release Request message delivered by BSC contains other cause values. requesting that SACCH be deactivated.M900/M1800 Base Station Subsystem Signaling Analysis Manual 6 Release Procedure Figure 6-2 BSC local release procedure MS BTS BSC MSC Deactivate SACCH (1) REL REQ(REL Local End) (2) REL Confirrm (3) RF Channel REL (4) RF Channel REL ACK (5) Step 1 BSC sends a Deactivate SACCH message to BTS. Here. BTS should deliver a DISC frame to MS. with the cause value "Local end released".
