Ltd. 3 .WCDMA RAN Intelligently Out of Service Feature Parameter Description 2 Overview 2 Overview This feature enables services to be handed over to other 2G or 3G cells without call drops before the cell is out of service.. Issue Draft A (2014-01-20) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co.

. 4 . this feature enables the NodeB to automatically reduce the pilot power and hand over the UEs to other GERAN or UTRAN cells. thereby lowering the call drop ratio. When the out-of-service state is triggered. The out-of-service state is automatically triggered in the following cases: l Voltage of the batteries is lower than the preset threshold after the AC power is shut down l Reset of the Node B When the out-of-service state is triggered. When one of these problems occurs. If the pilot power directly rises to the maximum. This allows the services to be handed over to other 2G or 3G cells without call drops before the cell is out of service. Ltd. the PCPICH power can be lowered to 1 dB per 333 ms. the PCPICH power of the cells can be lowered step by step until the UEs are handed over to other 2G or 3G cells. the pilot power gradually rises so that the UEs are smoothly handed over back to the original cell from other GERAN or UTRAN cells. When the NodeB battery voltage is restored or the cell is unblocked. this feature enables the NodeB to automatically reduce the pilot transmit power and hand over the UE to other 2G or 3G cells. This feature prevents the pilot power from directly rising to the maximum. This feature gradually reduces the pilot power in the following scenarios: l Voltage of the batteries is lower than the preset threshold after the AC power is shut down l Reset of the NodeB This feature gradually increases the pilot power in the following scenarios: l The battery output voltage reaches the undervoltage threshold. For example. the Issue Draft A (2014-01-20) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. thus lowering the call drop ratio.WCDMA RAN Intelligently Out of Service Feature Parameter Description 3 3 Technical Description Technical Description This feature is introduced to prevent service interruption caused by insufficient battery voltage or NodeB reset When one of these problems occurs. l The cell is unblocked. interference is caused towards the neighboring cells and call drops occur in the neighboring UTRAN cells. For example. The Intelligently Out of Service feature is introduced to prevent service interruption caused by insufficient battery voltage or NodeB reset. the PCPICH power of the cells can be lowered step by step until the UEs are handed over to other GERAN or UTRAN cells.

Increasing the cell pilot power aims to gradually hand over the services back to the original cell from the neighboring cells. Issue Draft A (2014-01-20) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co.. This allows the services to be handed over to other GERAN or UTRAN cells without call drops before the cell is out of service. Ltd.WCDMA RAN Intelligently Out of Service Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description PCPICH power can be lowered to 1 dB per 333 ms. 5 . Increase of the cell pilot power uses the same parameters as those for reduction of the cell pilot power.
