CE Resource Management Feature Parameter Description 2 Overview

2 Overview

CE resources are a type of NodeB hard resource. The number of CEs a NodeB supports
indicates the channel demodulation capabilities of the NodeB. The more CEs a NodeB
supports, the more powerful its channel demodulation and service processing capabilities.
Services at different rates require different numbers of CEs to ensure proper channel
demodulation.
In a RAN, both the RNC and NodeB manage CE resources, as shown in Figure 2-1. The
process is divided into the following stages:
l The NodeB reports its CE capacity to the RNC.
l The RNC determines whether to admit a new service based on the number of CEs that
need to be consumed and controls CE resources when CE resources are insufficient. This
ensures the proper use of CE resources.
l The NodeB dynamically manages CE resources and rapidly adjusts the number of CEs
that can be consumed based on the actual service rate. This increases CE resource usage.
CE Overbooking is introduced in RAN 14.0. When NodeB credit resources are insufficient
during UE access and the uplink HSUPA throughput is low, this feature can:
l Improve the admission capability of RNC credit resources, allowing more UEs to be
admitted to a NodeB.
l Enable more UEs to use the 2 ms transmission time interval (TTI), increasing the UE
throughput.

3 Technical Description

3.1 Basic Concepts

3.1.1 CE
CE is a basic unit that measures the channel demodulation capabilities of a NodeB. CEs are
classified into uplink (UL) CEs and downlink (DL) CEs.
l A UL 12.2 kbit/s voice service (SF = 64) plus 3.4 kbit/s signaling needs to consume one
UL CE.
l A DL 12.2 kbit/s voice service (SF = 128) plus 3.4 kbit/s signaling needs to consume one
DL CE.
If a DCH or HSPA channel only carries 3.4 kbit/s signaling traffic, it still needs to consume
one CE. The number of CEs that services of other types need to consume can be calculated by
analogy.
The number of UL and DL CEs a NodeB supports is determined by the NodeB hardware
capabilities and the licensed CE capacity. The number of UL and DL CEs the NodeB
hardware supports is called the physical CE capacity. The licensed CE capacity may differ
from the physical CE capacity. The smaller determines the number of CEs that can be used by
an operator.
CE is a concept on the NodeB side. On the RNC side, it is called NodeB credit. The RNC
performs admission and congestion control based on the NodeB credit. In the UL, the number
of NodeB credit resources is twice that of CEs. In the DL, the number of NodeB credit
resources equals that of CEs.

3.1.2 CE Sharing in a Resource Group


To facilitate baseband resource management, NodeB baseband resources are classified into
uplink and downlink resource groups that are independent of each other. Figure 3-1 shows
uplink and downlink resource groups.

CE Resource Management Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

Figure 3-1 Uplink and downlink resource groups

NOTE

Micro base stations are integrated small-cell base stations in which the uplink resources and downlink
resources form respective resource groups by default without manual configuration.

Uplink Resource Group


As shown in Figure 3-1:

l Multiple baseband processing units can be configured for one uplink resource group.
Only the WBBPf4 board can be configured for two uplink resource groups. All other
baseband processing units can be configured only for one uplink resource group.
Run the ADD ULGROUP command to add baseband processing units for the
BTS3812AE, BTS3812E, and DBS3800 to uplink resource groups.
Run the ADD BASEBANDEQM command to add baseband processing units for the
3900 series base station, DBS3900 LampSite base station, and micro base station to
uplink resources groups.
l Multiple cells can be configured for one uplink resource group.
The ULGROUPNO parameter specifies the uplink resource group whose uplink CE
resources can be used by a cell under the BTS3812AE, BTS3812E, and DBS3800. The
ULBASEBANDEQMID parameter specifies the uplink resource group whose uplink CE
resources can be used by a cell under the 3900 series base station, DBS3900 LampSite
base station, and micro base station. One cell can be configured for only one uplink
resource group.
NOTE

It is good practice to add intra-frequency cells to the same uplink resource group to make softer
handovers feasible.

Issue 05 (2016-12-30) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 7


Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
WCDMA RAN
CE Resource Management Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

UEs under a cell served by an uplink resource group can occupy the resources of any
baseband processing unit in the group. That is, UEs under a cell served by an uplink resource
group share the CE resources of all baseband processing units in the group.

The physical CE capacity of an uplink resource group is the sum of physical CE capacities of
all baseband processing units in the group.

Downlink Resource Group


In RAN14.0 and later versions, the 3900 series base station and DBS3900 LampSite base
station support CE resource sharing among baseband processing units in a downlink resource
group. The DBS3800, BTS3812AE, and BTS3812E support CE resource sharing within a
baseband processing unit.

As shown in Figure 3-1:

l Multiple baseband processing units can be configured for one downlink resource group.
One baseband processing unit can only be configured for one downlink resource
group. For the BTS3812AE, BTS3812E, and DBS3800, run the ADD DLGROUP
command to add a baseband processing unit to a downlink resource group.
For the 3900 series base station and DBS3900 LampSite base station, run the ADD
BASEBANDEQM command to add a baseband processing unit to a downlink
resource group.
l Multiple cells can be configured for one downlink resource group.
The DLGROUPNO parameter specifies the downlink resource group whose downlink
CE resources can be used by a cell under the BTS3812AE, BTS3812E, and DBS3800.
The DLBASEBANDEQMID parameter specifies the downlink resource group whose
downlink CE resources can be used by a cell under the 3900 series base station,
DBS3900 LampSite base station, and micro base station. One cell can be configured for
only one downlink resource group.
NOTE

It is good practice to add all baseband processing units to the same downlink resource group.

UEs under a cell served by a downlink resource group can occupy the resources of any
baseband processing unit in the group and share the CEs of all baseband processing units in
the group. The hardware capability of the baseband processing unit where the cell is set up
limits the number of CEs of a downlink resource group that a cell can use. The details are as
follows:

An example is as follows:

A WBBPb3 board and a WBBPb4 board are configured for one downlink resource group.
Cell 1 is served by F1 in the downlink resource group and is configured on the WBBPb3
board. Cell 2 is served by F2 in the downlink resource group and is configured on the
WBBPb4 board, as shown in Figure 3-2.

In this example, the following conditions apply:

l At most, cell 1 can use 384 CE resources of the downlink resource group.
l At most, cell 2 can use 384 CE resources of the downlink resource group.
l At most, cell 1 and cell 2 can simultaneously use 640 CE resources of the downlink
resource group. The combined resources which cell 1 and cell 2 use cannot be greater
than the total number of the CE resources on the WBBPb3 board and WBBPb4 board.

Figure 3-2 An example of CE resource sharing in downlink resource group

NOTE

The WBBPa board cannot share CE resources with other types of baseband processing units.
If a baseband processing unit in a downlink resource group is unavailable, due to issues such as board
failure, the UEs served by cells set up on the baseband processing unit and the UEs occupying the CE
resources of the baseband processing unit will experience call drops.

It is good practice to run the SET NODEBRESALLOCRULE command with the SW


parameter set to ON to enable the automatic cell rehoming function. With this function, the
NodeB automatically implements cell rehoming among the baseband processing units during
off-peak hours if the following conditions are met:

l The NodeB detects that the CE resources of a baseband processing unit are insufficient
for CE sharing.

CE Resource Management Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

l The number of online CS users in the downlink resource group is less than or equal to
CSUSERNUM and the number of online PS users is less than or equal to
PSUSERNUM.

This function enables the UEs to be evenly distributed among the baseband processing units
in a downlink resource group.

The RNC reports EVT-28202 Local Cell Rebuild once automatic cell rehoming is
implemented. Setting both CSUSERNUM and PSUSERNUM to 0 prevents call drops caused
by automatic cell rehoming.

3.1.3 NodeB CE Capacity Specifications


Different baseband processing units of a NodeB have their own CE capacity specifications.
For details of CE capacity specifications supported by each type of baseband processing unit,
see the BBU3900 Hardware Description in the WCDMA NodeB Product Documentation.

CE capacity here refers to the number of CEs that can be consumed by UL and DL R99
services and HSUPA services. It does not include CE resources reserved by the NodeB for
common and HSDPA channels.

3.2 CE Consumption Rules


Introduction
The RNC determines the number of CEs required for a service based on the spreading factor
(SF) that matches the service rate.

When a service is established, consumed CEs need to be lent. When a service is deleted,
consumed CEs need to be recorded. CE consumption rules vary with different traffic
channels.

Figure 3-3 CE consumption rules for different traffic channels

Figure 3-3 describes CE consumption rules for different traffic channels. Grey boxes indicate
the channels for which CEs are reserved and yellow boxes indicate the channels that consume
the uplink or downlink CEs.

Issue 05 (2016-12-30) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 10


Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
WCDMA RAN
CE Resource Management Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

CE Consumption in Common Channels


The NodeB reserves some CEs for uplink and downlink common channels. If CE
consumption in common channels does not exceed the number of reserved CEs, extra licensed
CEs are not consumed. If CE consumption in common channels exceeds the number of
reserved CEs, extra licensed CEs are consumed.

CE Consumption of HSDPA Services


The NodeB reserves CEs for the high-speed downlink shared channel (HS-DSCH) and related
control channels. These CEs do not need to be factored into the calculation of CE
consumption.

Note that the signaling of an HSDPA UE that is not performing an R99 service occupies one
DCH and needs to consume one DL CE. If the SRB over HSDPA function is enabled, the
signaling of an HSDPA service does not consume additional CEs. For an HSDPA UE that is
performing an R99 service, its signaling and the R99 service occupy the same DCH.
Therefore, only the CEs consumed on R99 traffic channels need to be calculated.

CE Consumption of R99 Services


For an R99 service, the RNC determines the number of CEs and NodeB credit resources that
need to be consumed based on the SF that matches the maximum bit rate (MBR) of the
service.

NOTE

l As described in Table 3-1, 3.4 kbit/s and 13.6 kbit/s indicate the CE consumption when only SRB
rather than TRB is involved during RRC connection setup. When TRB is involved, CE consumption
includes TRB and SRB and the SRB is carried only at the rate of 3.4 kbit/s.
l In RAN16.0 or later versions, the same consumption rule applies to UBBP boards with four RX
antennas and two RX antennas. The consumption rule shown in Table 3-1 applies only to WBBPb,
WBBPd, and WBBPf boards.
l The WBBPa board uses different CE consumption rules for HSUPA services from other boards. For
details, see Table 3-7.

NOTE

Four-way receive diversity does not affect downlink CE consumption.

CE Consumption of HSUPA Services


For an HSUPA service, the RNC determines the number of CEs and NodeB credit resources
that need to be consumed based on the SF that matches the service rate. The RNC determines
the SF based on a certain rate in the following ways:
l If the UL enhanced L2 function is disabled and the NodeB indicates in a private
information element (IE) that dynamic CE resource management has been enabled in the
cell, the RNC calculates the SF based on the Max (one RLC PDU bit rate, GBR).
NOTE

If the UL enhanced L2 function is disabled, the RLC PDU size is fixed. The bit rate of one RLC PDU is
determined by the RLC PDU size and transmission time interval (TTI).
l If the UL enhanced L2 function is enabled and the NodeB indicates in a private IE that
dynamic CE resource management has been enabled in the cell, the RNC calculates the
SF based on the Max (one min RLC PDU, GBR).

Issue 05 (2016-12-30) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 12


Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
WCDMA RAN
CE Resource Management Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

NOTE

If the UL enhanced L2 function is enabled, the RLC PDU size is flexible. The bit rate of the smallest
RLC PDU is determined by the minimum RLC PDU size and the TTI. The minimum RLC PDU size
can be specified by the RlcPduMinSizeForUlL2Enhance(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter.
l If the NodeB reports that dynamic CE resource management has been disabled, the RNC
calculates the SF based on the MBR.
l If the NodeB does not report whether dynamic CE resource management has been
enabled, the RNC calculates the SF based on the value of the
HsupaCeConsumeSelection(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter and whether the UL
enhanced L2 function is enabled.
If HsupaCeConsumeSelection(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to MBR, the RNC
calculates the SF based on the MBR.
If HsupaCeConsumeSelection(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to GBR:
a. If the UL enhanced L2 function is disabled, the RNC calculates the SF based on
the Max (one RLC PDU bit rate, GBR).
b. If the UL enhanced L2 function is enabled, the RNC calculates the SF based on
the Max (one min RLC PDU bit rate, GBR).
After the RNC determines the SF based on the service rate, the 3900 series base station,
DBS3900 LampSite base station, and micro base station configured with WBBPb, WBBPd,
and WBBPf boards obtain the number of CEs to be consumed according to the mapping rules
in Table 3-3, Table 3-4, Table 3-5, and Table 3-6. The same consumption rule applies to
UBBP boards with four RX antennas and two RX antennas. The WBBPa board uses different
CE consumption rules for HSUPA services from other boards. For details, see Table 3-7.
The 3900 series base station, DBS3900 LampSite base station, and micro base station support

HSUPA services and saves operators' investment.

NOTE

l For HSUPA services, if SRBs are carried over DCHs, each SRB consumes an extra CE.
l As listed in Table 3-3, the rate in the SF = minSF column indicates the maximum typical rate
supported by the corresponding SF when an HSUPA service is admitted at the MBR, and the rate in
the SF > minSF column indicates the maximum typical rate supported by the corresponding SF
when the HSUPA service is admitted at the Max (one RLC PDU bit rate, GBR). For example, if an
HSUPA service is admitted at the MBR, the maximum typical rate supported by SF4 is 608 kbit/s.
l If a rate is not listed in the preceding table, the number of CEs consumed corresponds to the larger
rate specified in the table. For example, in scenarios of two RX antennas, if an HSUPA service is
admitted at the MBR of 384 kbit/s, the HSUPA service matches SF4 and consumes 8 CEs and 16
credit resources, which corresponds to the MBR of 608 kbit/s.
l In RAN16.0 or later versions, the same consumption rule applies to UBBP boards with four RX
antennas and two RX antennas. The consumption rule shown in Table 3-3 applies only to WBBPb,
WBBPd, and WBBPf boards.

DCH and DL SRB is carried on the DCH.

3.3 Admission and Congestion Control Based on CE


Resources
Because CE resources are limited, the RNC needs to perform admission and congestion
control based on CE resources. UL and DL CE resources undergo separate admission and
congestion control.

3.3.1 Admission Control


The RNC admits a service based on NodeB credit resources (called CE resources on the
NodeB side). If the admission fails, preemption and queuing will be triggered.

Call Admission
CE resources for consumption by common channels and HSDPA services are reserved in
advance. Therefore, UEs requesting common or HSDPA channels do not need to be admitted
based on CE resources.

Admission control based on NodeB credit is performed on the RNC side. It mainly applies to
RRC connection requests, handover requests and non-HSDPA services.

Admission based on NodeB credit is optional in resource admission control. This function is
controlled by the switch parameters
CacSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910):NODEB_CREDIT_CAC_SWITCH and
NBMCacAlgoSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910):CRD_ADCTRL. It is recommended that these
two switch parameters are turned on. If these two switch parameters are turned off, excessive
user admission may mean the correctness of the channel demodulation cannot be guaranteed.

For a detailed description of admission control based on NodeB credit, see the Call Admission
Control Feature Parameter Description.

Preemption and Queuing Following a Failed Admission


If an admission based on NodeB credit resources fails, this will trigger preemption and
queuing based on NodeB credit resources will be triggered.

Preemption based on NodeB credit resources is similar to preemption based on other


resources. The RNC releases NodeB credit resources occupied by one or more low-priority
UEs until the total released NodeB credit resources meet the requirement for the new UE.

If the preemption fails, queuing is implemented to increase the access success rate of the new
UE.

For a detailed description of preemption and queuing, see the Load Control Feature
Parameter Description.

CE Resource Management Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

3.3.2 Basic Congestion Control


When the usage of NodeB credit resources in a cell exceeds the threshold for triggering basic
congestion, the cell enters the basic congestion state. In this case, load reshuffling (LDR) is
required to reduce the cell load and increase the access success rate. The following LDR
actions are likely to be taken:
l Load-based Inter-Frequency Handover
l BE rate reduction
l QoS renegotiation for uncontrollable real-time services
l Inter-RAT handover in the CS domain
l Inter-RAT handover in the PS domain
Run the ADD UCELLLDR/ADD UNODEBLDR command to set the sequence of these
LDR actions.
For detailed information about NodeB credit triggered LDR, see the Load Control Feature
Parameter Description.

3.4 CE Overbooking
The RNC reserves a certain amount of credit resources for each admitted UE. To ensure
HSUPA user satisfaction, the RNC reserves more credit resources for HSUPA UEs with a 2
ms TTI. When the total amount of reserved credit resources exceeds a specified threshold, the
RNC rejects new UE access attempts. However, the actual NodeB CE usage is low. This is
because uplink throughput is low in most cases due to the high penetration rate of smart
phones.
To increase the CE usage on the NodeB side and enhance the RNC's capability to perform
admission control based on credit resource usage, you can use the CE Overbooking feature.
With this feature, the NodeB calculates actual credit resource usage of admitted UEs based on
traffic volume and reports the actual credit resource usage to the RNC through a private
interface. The RNC then performs admission control on new UEs based on the reported credit
resource usage.
For a detailed description of CE Overbooking, see the CE Overbooking Feature Parameter
Description.

3.5 Admission-CE-based TTI Adjustment


As defined in 3GPP specifications, SF4 is the minimum for an HSUPA UE with 2 ms TTI.
Therefore, one HSUPA UE with 2 ms TTI consumes a minimum of eight UL CEs. HSUPA
UEs with 2 ms TTI outperform HSUPA UEs with 10 ms TTI, and consume more CEs than the
HSUPA UEs with 10 ms TTI. If HSUPA UEs with 2 ms TTI dominate a cell, fewer UEs can
be admitted to the cell.
To prevent this problem, Huawei introduces Admission-CE-based TTI adjustment. With this
function, when the NodeB credit resources are insufficient, the 2 ms TTI is switched to the 10
ms TTI to allow more UEs to access the network. When the throughput of the 10 ms TTI
HSUPA UE reaches a certain threshold, switch the 10 ms TTI to the 2 ms TTI to achieve
higher peak rates.
For details, see the HSUPA TTI Selection Feature Parameter Description.

CE Resource Management Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

3.6 Dynamic CE Resource Management for HSUPA


Although HSUPA improves user experience and increases UL throughput, it greatly increases
CE resource consumption through the use of hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) and
support for soft handovers. If CE resources are allocated fixedly based on the MBR when
radio links are being set up, CE resources will not be taken back, even if the actual service
rate is much lower than the MBR. Fixed allocation of CE resources wastes CEs and can cause
bottlenecks in HSUPA performance. A more energy-saving and efficient allocation method is
required.
With dynamic CE resource management, the NodeB performs initial CE allocation based on
the GBR of a UE. The NodeB then periodically adjusts CE resources allocated to UEs based
on information such as the user priority and actual rate.
For a detailed description of dynamic CE resource management, see the HSUPA Feature
Parameter Description.

3.7 Licensed CE Capacity Alarm


When NodeB CE consumption exceeds a specified threshold of the licensed CE capacity for a
specified period, the NodeB reports ALM-26812 System Dynamic Traffic Exceeding
Licensed Limit.
When NodeB CE consumption stays below a specified threshold of the licensed CE capacity,
for example, 90% for a specified period, this alarm is cleared. To configure the CE
consumption thresholds and duration, run the NodeB command SET
NODEBLICENSEALMTHD.

12. SIGNALING_SHO_UL_AC_SWITCH: Whether
to enable uplink power-based soft handover control
for UEs who have established RRC connections but
process no services. If this switch is turned on, such
UEs cannot access target cells by using soft handovers
if the target cells are in the OLC state in the uplink.
13. FACH_UU_ADCTRL: Whether to enable
admission control for UEs that establish services on
FACHs. If this switch is turned on and a UE initiates
an RAB or RRC connection setup request (with a
cause value other than Detach, Registration, or
Emergency Call) in an overloaded cell, the setup
request is rejected. If the cell is not overloaded, the
FACH user admission procedure is initiated and the
UE can access the cell after the procedure succeeds. If
this switch is turned off, the FACH user admission
procedure is initiated regardless of whether the cell is
overloaded and the UE can access the cell after the
procedure succeeds.
14. MIMOCELL_LEGACYHSDPA_ADCTRL:
Whether to enable admission control for common
HSDPA UEs in MIMO cells.
15. FAST_DORMANCY_ADCTRL: Whether to
enable admission control for fast dormancy-capable
UEs. This switch is used to alleviate FACH
congestion by disabling state migration for fast
dormancy-capable UEs in the CELL-DCH state. If
this switch is turned off for many cells under the
RNC, signaling storms occur and CPU usage on the
RNC, NodeB, and SGSN increases significantly,
affecting service access. The function corresponding
to this switch has been deleted in R13, and this switch
is invalid.
