Water is discharged from the water tank to the


Water tank pool

Water is poured to the belt conveyer through a


SGSN valve-controlled water pipe

The valve size is determined by the belt


RNC conveyer.

The belt conveyer fills water to the bottle in a


NodeB certain rate.

HSDPA Throughput Optimization

OPT 1 . HSDPA radio resource allocation strategies, whole network


SET MACHSPARA: LOCELL=0, RSCALLOCM=POWERCODE_BAL

This feature can balance the consumption of currently available code resources and power resources, to avoid code or power
unilaterally congestion in order to improve resource utilization, enhance cell capacity. Relative to the code priority, the power
code balance can enhance the cell downlink load, while reducing the resource utilization of code.

CODE_PRI: Code resource priority allocation strategy is mainly used in the power-limit scenario, this strategy led to a low
ratio of power resource utilization in the power not limit scenario, thereby reducing the system throughput.

POWER_PRI: power resources for priority allocation, mainly used in the code resource constrained scenario, this strategy led
to a low ratio of code resource utilization in the code not limit scenario, thereby reducing the system throughput.

OPT 2. Configuring CQI Adjustment Based on Dynamic BLER Target


SET MACHSPARA: LOCELL=0, CQIADJALGOFNONCON=CQI_ADJ_BY_DYN_BLER;
With this feature, the NodeB can dynamically select the optimum BLER target value based on the channel quality fluctuation
of HSDPA users. The NodeB then adjusts the Channel Quality Indicator (CQI) accordingly, improving user throughput and cell
throughput.

NO_CQI_ADJ: The UE measures the Ec/No of the Common Pilot Channel (CPICH) and adds a Measurement Power Offset
(MPO) as the Ec/No estimation value of the HS-PDSCH. That is, the UE assumes that the NodeB transmits the HS-PDSCH
according to CPICH Power + MPO. Then, add the SF gain 10 * log16 to obtain the SNR of the HS-PDSCH. Obtain the CQI
according to the relationship between the SNR and CQI of the simulated HS-PDSCH.

CQI_ADJ_BY_IBLER: 1st SBLER indicates the BLER of initial data transmission, also called IBLER. With this feature ,NodeB
can adjust CQI to a proper value according IBLER . But in some scenario ,If the SBLER is always around 10% no matter how
you move the position, it may results from enabling the function of channel adjustment.

The HSDPA throughput has a steady improvement after swap in the last 30 days.

The average HSDPA throughput reach the target 1776 bps.

OPT 4. Modify Cell HSDPA Parameters (Recommended value of Power Compensate is set to 1~1.5)
MOD UCELLHSDPA : CellId=0, HsPdschMPOConstEnum = 0;
This parameter named Measure Power Offset Constant is used to compute measurement power offset. Measurement power
offset is used by UE to obtain total received HS-PDSCH power. The calculation for Measure Power Offset is as shown below:

CQI = CPICH Ec/No + MPO + 10 * log16 + 4.5


= SNRcpich + MPO + 4.5
= SNRhs-pdsch (based on assumed power) + 4.5 (with a round process, depending on the UE implementation)

MPO = min(13, Pcell-Pcpich - MPO constant) dB , The MPO constant is 2.5 by default
(For details of the IE "Measure Power Offset", refer to 3GPP TS 25.214)
