What Is R99 & HSPA

R99 is a handset data bearer service up to 384kbit/s which is generally known as Release 99 or R99.
HSPA means high Speed packet access. It is combination is HSUPA (High speed uplink packet access) & HSDPA (high speed downlink packe
SDPA (high speed downlink packet access) that support maximum 42Mbit/s

Possible Reason
Interference
Bad Coverage: Bad Signal Strength: Overshooting
Wrong DRT (Dairect to retry )1Value for Neighbours like -100 etc should be -85
Co-BCCH
Hardware Problem
Hardware Problem: Loose or Faulty Cables, Faulty Connections
Interference: on BCCH or hopping, Wrong HSN, MAIO, MS etc
Bad Coverage: Bad Signal Strength
VSWR
Swap: Sector or Cable
Wrong PER: Should be 4 Hours
Less Sdcch TS in Sector
Wrong LAC Boundary or Overlapping Coverage at LAC Boundary
Traffic : SMS or Calls: Wrong no of SDCCH
Alarms on SDCCH or TRX
Hardware Problem
Dynamic SDCCH Not working
Blocking due to More than 18 Logical Channels in one Trx (with TCHD and SDCCH)
Hardware Problem
Lesser Trx's
Wrong Half rate settings
Locked TS or Trx's
Outage of nearby site: high traffic due to that
Non-BCCH Trx Lock for a time period when Site on Battery

Co-BCCH BSIC in neghbours


Co-BCCH Overlapping coverage in neighbours
Congestion on Target cells: BLT is 70 normally: should be changed to 90 when poor HOSR due to conge
Wrong Definitions: More Neighbours
Large LAC with high Traffic
PGCH: AGCH ratio wrong, Ideally 6:3 or 7:2 if needed and if does not impacts CSSR
Switch Problem
Coverage holes area; User gets out of coverage many a times so paging failures till user does not gets
Wrong MFR Parameter(Default is 4)
Paging Timer in MSC 4.5 Second
Overshooting
Interference
HO Problems: due to congestion etc
Frequent HO: Ping Pong: Coverage; Wrong Handover Margins

Proper Half Rate Settings


TRHO should be enabled with a neighbour level of -85
DRT Should be Enabled
