2 PRACH) The principle of the spreading and scrambling (figure 2) of the PRACH message part..2.2. CTFC 1 responsible for data. Most cells in network has missing configuration of CTFC=1 of PRACH. while the binary value "1" is mapped to the real value –1. UMTS setup delay solution Investigation During tests with TEMS investigation was observed that some cells has no issues. When UE on FACH (only DL) channel there was no UL transport channel for data transmission. separate data and control parts messages on PRACH channel.e. (3GPP TS 25. After compare CFGMML was found that some cells has missing configuration of RACH channel. i. The binary control and data parts to be spread are represented by real-valued sequences. Page 4 of 9 .213 version 9. consisting of data and control parts. Ltd. sub-clause 4. while the data part is spread to the chip rate by the channelization code cd. Technical Description Details: (CTFC) is Calculated Transport Format Combination In accordance with 3GPP standard CTFC with index 0 and 1. Meaning: CTFC 0 responsible for signaling. therefore UE stuck on FACH. The control part is spread to the chip rate by the channelization code cc. 2016-10-10 Huawei Technologies Co. the binary value "0" is mapped to the real value +1.0 Release 9.

set PowerOffsetPpm to -3. The 10 ms scrambling code is applied aligned with the 10 ms message part radio frames.0.. Recommended Value: In signaling (control) transmission mode.e. Page 5 of 9 . For detailed information of this parameter. the real-valued spread signals are weighted by gain factors. The β values are quantized into 4 bit words. After the weighting. UMTS setup delay solution After channelization. The quantization steps are given in sub clause 4. the first scrambling chip corresponds to the beginning of a message part radio frame. At every instant in time. This complex-valued signal is then scrambled by the complex-valued scrambling code Sr-msg. In addition.2. at least one of the values βc and βd has the amplitude 1.1.n. In service (data) transmission mode. when two (2) TFC are configured with index 1 and 0. there is a need to assign power offset parameter in accordance with BSC6910 UMTS Product Documentation (Product Version: V100R016C00) under ADD UPRACHTFC command with parameter PowerOffsetPpm (Power Offset) Meaning: The power offset between the last access preamble and the message control part. set PowerOffsetPpm to -2. by separating control and data parts. The power of the message control part can be obtained by adding the offset to the access preamble power. the stream of real-valued chips on the I- and Q-branches are treated as a complex-valued stream of chips. i. βc for the control part and βd for the data part. 2016-10-10 Huawei Technologies Co.213.
