eNodeB will limit the time and frequency resource of CCU. In this way. and the edge users.cell center user or CEUcell edge user. work on MAC layer. The mechanism is to limit the CEU on part of the bandwidth. because the interference between antennas and interference between symbols are mixed together. . power control to reduce the inter cell interference. DL ICIC contains downlink static ICIC(basic feature) and downlink dynamic ICIC(optional feature). what is DL ICIC? Unlike UL ICIC. 46.channels. especially at the cell edges. it is difficult for MIMO and Channel equalization. Next one. which is easier for MIMO. ICIC is one technology that combine scheduling. And in OFDM. In LTE system each cell uses whole bandwidth. Downlink static ICIC In DL static ICIC. inter cell interference coordination. and therefore there is interference between cells. which only takes 15khz. what is ICIC? ICIC. each OFDM subcarrier. Next one. What is ICIC? 45. Well inter cell interference is one of the major factors that impact the LTE performance. the edge bandwidth is separated from the whole bandwidth beforehand. can be taken as horizontal fading channel. in order to reduce the interference between cells and then improve the cell edge user throughput and system coverage. DL ICIC is using only frequency domain interference coordination and there is no distinguish between intra-eNodeB and inter-eNodeB. or schedule the resource to CEU different time. DL ICIC. are allocated the edge bands which are Orthogonal to each other. the interference can be reduced. which are suffering the interference from other neighbor cells.

uplink dynamic ICIC. One CEU might have great interference to intra-eNodeB neighbor cell A but hardly any interference to another B. UL ICIC judges its neighbors for different CEU. what is UL ICIC? UL ICIC contains uplink static ICIC(basic feature) and uplink dynamic ICIC(optional feature). each takes 1/3 of the entire RBs. Next one. In this way.Downlink dynamic ICIC Downlink ICIC will accord to the load at the edge band and adjust the cell edge band dynamically. Edge band will allocated to CEU and center band to CCU. therefore. what is difference between DL static ICIC and dynamic ICIC? DL dynamic ICIC When the serving cell is reconfigured or initialed. Regarding the initial band divide. within one eNodeB the cell bands assighment method is the same. The result of adjustment will send to neighbor cells by RNTP(Relatively narrow-band transmission power) message. UL ICIC have different strategy for different CEUs. Neighbor eNodeBs have different assignment strategy. . what is difference between DL static ICIC and dynamic ICIC? 48. based on uplink static ICIC. which is to divide the whole band into 3 parts. Next one. and frequency domain ICIC for different eNodeBs. What is UL ICIC? 47. uplink static ICIC uses different band assignment for different eNodeBs. considering the fact that uplink inter cell interference is associated with the distribution of CEUs. uplink dynamic ICIC adds self adaptive edge band adjustment function. the center band is configured as the whole band. And it uses time domain ICIC for the cells in same eNodoB. Regarding the initial band divide. which means nothing for the edge band. One method is often used. while DL static ICIC configures the band according to different cells. This function can adjust the edge band based on the load of the cell edge. for inter-eNodeB scenario. DL static ICIC UL ICIC configured the band according to different eNodeB.

The procedures of the event-triggered ANR. Event-triggered adds missed neighbors and meantime event-triggered have PCI confliction detection function. What is the difference between event-triggered ANR and flash ANR? 49. specific UE will send measurement report periodically and eNodeB will add those neighbors into NCL. And for fast ANR. no direct relation with events. Next one. ANR is classified into eventtriggered ANR and fast ANR (known as periodic ANR). What is the difference between event-triggered ANR and flash ANR? Based on the methods of measuring neighbor cells. Event-triggered ANR takes actions according to intra-frequency and interfrequency A1/A2/A4 events triggered. which is also called period ANR. The procedures of the fast ANR. .each cell can have 1/3 as its edge band.

when UE reads the CGI and other information about an unknown cell during discontinuous reception(DRX) periods. Because the . This drop occurs because the UE cannot be scheduled during DRX periods.when UE performs gap-assisted measurement on inter-frequency or inter-RAT neighboring cells Moreover. Will fast ANR impact the throughput? 50. Will fast ANR impact the throughput? Intra-RAT fast ANR has influences on the throughput 1. the influences on throughput is controllable and acceptable. 2.. Next one.

How to export SON logs from M2000? 52. UE needs to read the CGI of the neighbor.upper limits on the number of UEs in fast ANR per cell and the number of the periodic measurement reports is configurable.1SPC420 and earlier version. The intra-LTE event-triggered ANR has minor impact on the performance because. In ANR. the longDRX is extended to 320ms. UE and eNodeB will be DRX mode. And when UE reading CGI. when the PCI of neighbor reported by the UE is not in the NCL of the serving eNodeB.DRX parameters configuration in ANR. But after practice. . the version after eRan2.retransmission timer is 8ms. 51.1SPC430. the event-triggered ANR also has impact on the throughput when reading CGI and other information about unknown cell during DRX periods. inactivity timer is 10ms. Besides. This configuration will have the best performance.inactivity timer 200ms. the other is neighbor cell ECGI reading. the DRX configuration for reading CGI is as follows. onDuration timer is 5ms. Next one. how the intra LTE ANR impact the system performance? There are two procedures that might have impact on the performance. Next one. In eRan2. the success rate for reading CGI on some sorts of UEs is low. DRX parameters configuration in ANR. onDuration timer 200ms. when longDRX is 160ms. One is neighbor cell measuring. Meaning that longDRX is 160ms. Given this fact.

Next one. The intra-LTE fast ANR. 2 As for reading ECGI. neighbor cell is always on going. will cause some impact on those UEs. But compared with call drop or poor cell serving due to missing handovers. if there exist inter-frequency neighbors. the period for UE to read ECGI is short. Secondly. When the neighbor is established. a group of UE are selected for GAP measuring. What are the scheduling modes in huawei product? 53. the impact can be accepted. no matter ANR is switched on or not. How to export SON logs from M2000? Configuration-LTE self optimization-Query SON logs . firstly.1 For neighbor cell measuring. no need for all the UEs to do the reading. lasting around hundreds of mini seconds. there is no need for UE to do the ECGI reading.

The event description.Select the log category. Next one. duration And you can view the logs listed. event source. What are the scheduling modes in huawei product? 54. What are the scheduling modes in huawei product? .

there are two kinds of scheduling modes. Dynamic has no request on the size of the packet and arrival time. now 4 kinds of scheduling strategy are supported. MAX C/I. this period is fixed as 20ms. doing one time scheduling decision and inform the UE the scheduling information by control signalings on PDSCH. same UE uses same time-frequency resource until it is release. such as VOIP. which is CQI feedback.The target of scheduling is satisfying the QoS as a precondition. according to different quality channels on different UEs. So in each TTI. RR: users take turns to be scheduled. Enhanced. Basic scheduling strategy MAX C/I: rank all the users by their channel quality. PF are basic scheduling strategy. EPF: Satisfying the QoS of the user as a precondition. calculating the weight of the priority . RR(Round Robin). Next one What is DL scheduling procedures? 56. try use the channel quality identity. to maximum the capacity and ensure fairness same time. MAX C/I. no need to send control signaling. eNodeB performs scheduling on MAC layer. ignoring the fairness. What is huawei scheduling strategy? 55. One TTI is 1ms. RR. Qos can not be guaranteed. What is huawei scheduling strategy? In huawei product. in order to maximum the capacity. It is applied when the service is stable speed and Periodic data service. Used when verify the capacity. Next one. coverage and fairness. Absolute fair. within a semi-static period. PF(Proportional fair) and EPF( Enhanced Proportional Fair). Semi-static is another scheduling method to control the spending of signaling. In huawei eNodeB. to transimiss data on the best quality of channels. In huawei eNodeB. EPF is enhanced strategy. therefore it can used for any service. This is to maximum the capacity. ensure the capacity and fairness. Semi-static and Dynamic. Used when test the maximum of the capacity. Dynamic scheduling is in each TTI( transmission time interval). the user with the best channel quality can get scheduled firstly. In this method. What is DL scheduling procedures? DL scheduling is to allocate the time-frequency resource for system information or . PF: this is considering the real time service speed and former average speed.

data. control panel/ IMS signaling. it starts to schedule the UE. The strategy is similar with DL. control data/ IMS signaling. Priority: VOIP. DL scheduling calculates the resources that can be scheduled based on the power left. size of the data and power headroom. And according to the channel quality. other with dynamic scheduling. retransmission data and others. retransmission data. VOIP with semi-static scheduling. Next one What is UL scheduling procedures? 57. the UE channel quality is evaluated with SINR by UE’s physical layer. DL procedures: Scheduling priority: VOIP. other initial data. The priority of control panel data is secondary to VOIP. In UL scheduling. determines the scheduling priority and MCS by QoS and CQI reported by UE. using dynamic scheduling. UL scheduling procedures. The size of the data is depending on the BSR and power on PHR reported by UE. eUtran selects the number of the RB and MCS. . What is UL scheduling procedures? When eUtran receives the scheduling request.

As follows. The QCI for default bearer is usually 9. to ensure the basic service. if UE requests .58. 1 When UE is attaching. the initial context set up is the process to establish a default bearer. eUtran will establish one bearer with a fixed bit rate. Default bearer and dedicated bearer Default bearer established in this scenarios. After UE attached successfully and default bearer is established.

which will also cause impact on the load. But there are still two scenarios. Huawei load control is consist of load visit other PDN. load balance and congestion control. Dedicated bearer. Admission control. Like the ERab establishment procedures. GBR service Qos and etc. When UE need to establish one dedicated service. and the default bearer can not fulfilled the QoS. but request by eUtran. to ensure the QoS of the service that already established. the scenarios mentioned above can cause change on the load. to provide reference for admission control. and thus impact the Qos of the already established service. Load monitor is to monitor cell resource like PRB usage. load balance and congestion control will take actions according to the result of the load monitoring. One is some of the service rate is changing and this will impact the load. Usually by admission control it is possible to control the congestion. To maximum the capacity and improve the admission success rate. admission control. allocate load distribution. Load balance is to refer to the load of the neighbor cells. And admission control will refer to the real time monitoring and decide whether to admit the GBR service. congestion control and load balance. Next one. This can be triggered by UE. What is load balance? 59.What is load control? The proposal for load balance or load control is to ensure the best of capacity and resource usage and meanwhile stabilize the system by rejecting or releasing some service. UE will establish one dedicated bearer with core. eUtran will trigger the PDN request related default bearer. Meantime congestion control will provide overload indicator for admission control and load balanced. . The other is UE mobility lead to changing on RF condition. Therefore even though the user number remains same.

The purpose and rules for admission control. The rules: . The purpose and rules for admission control. The purpose: Not only to maximum the efficiency of the resource but also ensuring the QoS. 59.Next one.

4 Improve the coverage and capacity: DL power control allocate power to different UE to achieve the requirement of system coverage. eNodeB power on DL. reduce the UE battery on UL. The objective is to 1 Ensure the Qos. The objective of power control 60. the objective of power control Power control is to control the transmission power of UE or eNOdeB. And by proper power allocation to improve the system capacity. Power control keeps service just fulfilling the BLER. Next one Category of power control. 3 Reduce the interference from the neighbor cells. . and to control the inter cell interference. in order to compensate the Path loss and shadow fading. 2 Reduce energy consumption. avoiding waste on the power.Next one.
