Test Case: [WRO.CP.TA.003] Intra eNB, intra-frequency A5 HO
1. Description:

The purpose of this Test Case is to verify intra-frequency handovers based on event A5 in case of RFS
environment. Handover based on event A5 is triggered when serving cell becomes worse than
threshold 1 and neighboring cell becomes better than threshold 2. A5 based handover is also called
coverage handover and is used to HO to other eUTRA cell in case serving cell RSRP gets below and
absolute threshold and neighbour cell RSRP gets better than an absolute threshold.

2. TEST ENVIRONMENT AND SETTINGS

Test Case should be executed in RFS environment. Expected results are described for LTE FSMF SM

IMCommander
Wireshark

3. Test Case Informations

3.1. Definitions from the test plan

Detailed information regarding configuration and specific conditions should be described on Test Plan
level.

3.2. Required Logs


Snapshot, BTSlogs and IM logs are required

4. Testing instructions:
4.1. Preconditions (optional):

eNB is operational and working. At least two cells with the same frequency layer must be configured
under the same eNB, so that intra-frequency handover based on A5 could be triggered
A5 HO is strictly LTE procedure, nevertheless test case is performed in RSF environment therefore NB
needs to be onAir state and without alarms during the entire test procedure.

Following parameters need to be configured before triggering intra-frequency A5 Handover based on


RSRP value.
