3 Resource Access Measurement

3 Resource Access Measurement


Resource Access Measurement registers information on all common
control channels (CCCH) of the base station controller. The recorded items
of data comprise the number of messages sent to the Abis interface. The
messages are sorted according to message type, average load on control
channels, and the number of traffic channel seizures for mobile originating
(MOC) and terminating calls (MTC). Signalling charts are drawn with the
accuracy of message interface.

3 Resource Access Measurement

Updated: When the value of the RACH load received in a CCCH_LOAD_INDICATION message
exceeds the previous value of the RACH load during the measurement period.
NOTE! This RACH counter is triggered when the RX Level is above -100dBm. Other detection
methods (like CRC or S/N) are not applied. This means that high load on RACH may occure even
without a significant number of CHANNEL_REQUIRED messages. For example, RACHs from different
MSs can clash and cause a high signal level, but the decoding does not find any detectable RACH.
The interference causes lots of bursts that trigger the counter, but these bursts are then filtered out in
the detection.

paging queue becomes so full that an additional paging command cannot be stored to the buffer. In
such a case the paging command is deleted.
