3.1 Solution for Improving Access-related KPIs

3.1.1 Solution Description


The solution for improving access-related KPIs provides the following functions:

l Improvement of the paging success rate


l Improvement of the RRC connection setup success rate
l Improvement of the RAB setup success rate

The called parties are paged before accessing the network. If a called party is in the border of a
location area (LA), the paging may fail if the called party is performing a cross-LA cell
reselection. This is because the LA information may not be updated for the UE in time. Under
these circumstances, the seamless paging feature can be enabled to prevent the paging failures
caused by cross-LA cell reselections.

Table 3-1 lists the causes of RRC connection setup failures and the improvement measures.

neighboring cells. If the inter-frequency
hard handover fails within the time
specified by the corresponding timer, the
RNC sends the UE inter-frequency and
inter-RAT measurement control
messages, instructing the UE to measure
the signal quality of inter-frequency and
inter-RAT neighboring cells.
