Overview of Call Related DX Causes in BSC

1 Overview of Call Related DX Causes in


BSC
All events that occur during a call have a cause. The causes can be coded in order
to observe the transactions in the network, solve possible error situtations and
improve the quality of the network.

Similarly, DX causes are cause codes that describe how the network transactions
have succeeded: they provide information on the causes of events such as call
establishment, handovers, internal faults, timer expiry cases, rejected messages
sent to mobile stations or channel releases. The DX causes are conveyed within
internal signalling messages.

Call Related DX Causes give more detailed information on the conditions inside
the BSC than GSM-defined cause values. The DX causes also include GSM
causes when a network element other than the BSC initiates the clearing of a
transaction. Cases that are not observed in the MSC can also be examined
through the use of DX causes.

The information in the DX causes can be examined using five different methods:

1. using BSC counters on BSC basis


2. using BSC counters on cell basis
3. using clear code counters on BSC basis, divided into different phases
4. using an observation or tracing report on subscriber or channel basis
5. using an observation report on clear code basis.

The counters are grouped into the following measurements, respectively:

1. BSC level clear code PM measurement


2. BSC level clear code SERLEV measurement
3. BSC level clear code measurement.

The measurements have different counters for failures and successful signalling
of the basic call and handover cases.

For more information on measurements and observations and how to run them,
see Performance measurements for S11 and BSC Statistics Administration.

2 Functional description of Call Related DX


Causes in BSC
A DX cause consists of a cause value and a functional phase:

.
a cause value describes the actual event
. a functional phase corresponds with a phase in the signalling scenario or
procedure; it defines when the event has occurred.

DX causes can be divided further into two different cause classes on the basis of
the cause element:

. success causes
. failure causes.

A success cause is set when an MS receives access to the network with a relevant
establishment cause, or when a handover starts with a relevant handover set-up
cause. Correspondingly, a failure cause is set when a failure occurs during a call
or a handover. It describes the error that caused the channel release.

Failure causes can be divided further into two different failure classes:

1. Service-level failure. Service for MS terminates unsuccessfully. Service-


level failures always lead to call clearing.
2. Informative failure. These types of failures may occur, for example, during
a handover, but they do not result in call clearing, or the MS cannot detect
this kind of failure. In such a case, the call continues on the old channel.
Failures that may occur during the call release are also included in this
failure class.

All failures which have occurred as service-level or informative failures are


included in the observation or tracing report. The reports also include the
successful cases.

Issue 10-0 en Nokia Proprietary and Confidential
Call Related DX Causes in BSC

Detection of failures

The handling of a DX cause is located on the GSM layer 3 and the failure
detection can be done in the A interface, Abis interface and inside the BSC.

The BSC is responsible for the following functional parts on layer 3:

. base transceiver station management (BTSM)


.
radio resource management (RR)
. base station system application part (BSSAP) .

BTSM and RR are parts of the Abis interface and BSSAP is a part of the A
interface.

Signalling on the mobility management (MM) layer is transparent to the BSC.


The BSC cannot detect all failures that have occurred on the MM layer. Some of
these failures can be detected, for example, a timer expiry on the lower layer,
corrupted messages or other protocol errors. The rest of these failures can be seen
as the release of the MSC. The BSC cannot observe these failures if the phase is
MM signalling (2) or conversation (15), because the BSC interprets this as a
successful call. If the failure occurs on layer 1 or 2, the failure can be detected on
layer 3 as a timer expiry or as different kinds of block cause.

Handling of DX Causes

DX causes are handled, as follows:

12 (128) # Nokia Corporation dn9814277


Nokia Proprietary and Confidential Issue 10-0 en
Functional description of Call Related DX Causes in BSC

1. When the program block A detects a failure, it sets the cause and sends the
appropriate message to another program block. This internal message
includes the DX cause element.
2. Program block B, which is responsible for the phase during which the error
occurred, receives the DX cause. Program block B sets the phase value in
the DX cause element.
3. When the appropriate program block has updated the failure counter, it also
sets a flag in the DX cause element which indicates that the counter has
already been updated. The counter is updated only once during call
signalling, such as a location update, an SMS or a call.

Note

The DX cause is set by the program block that initiates the channel release. When
another network element sends a clearing to the BSC, it is transformed into a DX
cause by the program block that receives the clearing.

Priorisation of conflicting failures

Since only one DX cause can be set for one transaction, only the first failure is
generally set as the DX cause. In a conflict situation, the program block that has
the highest priority defines the appropriate failure cause.

When two different failures are in conflict, the list of priorities is, as follows:

1. AIVPRB (because it also sets the cause of failure for the MSC)
2. HASPRB
3. other program blocks

The priority handling is implemented in the ABIPRB and the HASPRB and the A
interface is only responsible for setting the appropriate cause values.

The following program blocks are involved in the handling of DX causes:

ABIPRB The ABIPRB (Abis Interface Program Block) is responsible


for the normal call phases including basic call, SMS,
ciphering and FACCH call set-up. It also updates the
successful establishment counters, the Call Successful counter
(051015) and sets the failures that have occurred mainly in
Abis signalling.

dn9814277 # Nokia Corporation 13 (128)


Issue 10-0 en Nokia Proprietary and Confidential
Call Related DX Causes in BSC

AIVPRB The AIVPRB (A interface Signalling Program Block in BSC)


sets the failures that have occurred mainly in A interface
signalling.

HASPRB The HASPRB (Handover Attempt Supervisor Program


Block) is responsible for the handover phases including
external, internal intra and internal inter HO signalling. It
also updates the successful handover counters and sets the
failures which have occurred mainly in HO signalling.

RC0PRB The main purpose of the RC0PRB (Resource Control


Program Block in BSC) is to implement the interface between
the marker and the call control program blocks of the BSC.

RCSPRB The RCSPRB (Radio Connection Supervision Program


Block) takes care of the preprocessing of the measurement
samples, determines the RF output power of the MS and
BTS, indicates whether a handover is required and performs
supervision of the LAPD link by supervising the flow of
measurement results coming from the BTS.

RRMPRB The RRMPRB (Radio Resource Management Program


Block) controls the use of the radio channels. The program
block also sets the failures that have occurred in RC0PRB
signalling.

SC7PRB The SC7PRB (Speech Circuit Control in GSM BSC A


Interface) takes care of the administration of the A interface
speech circuits. The program block also sets the failures that
have occurred in SC7PRB signalling.

3 DX Causes in BSC Statistics


The information in the DX causes can be examined using the measurements and
observations of BSC Statistics. The sections below describe this in more detail.

For an overview of the topic, see Overview of Call Related DX Causes in BSC.

3.1 BSC clear code measurement counters for Call


Related DX Causes
The BSC clear code measurement counters record failures that have occurred
during a call (signalling or conversation). This measurement contains clear code
counters for each of the 15 different phases. All of these counters are failure
counters: their total number is determined by the total number of failure DX
causes. The values of all counters are given on BSC basis.

The counters are updated after a service-level or an informative failure has


occurred. For a description of the two failure classes, see Functional description
of Call Related DX Causes in BSC.

The counter numbers are determined as follows:

. the first two digits describe the measurement type, which in the BSC clear
code measurement is 50
. the next four digits describe the failure cause.

YYXXXX= counter number

YY= measurement type

XXXX= failure cause value

Each failure cause has its own exact number, which are listed and described in
Cause codes of Call Related DX Causes in BSC.

Example of a clear code counter

If, for example, the clear code counter 500315 (conn_fail_c) has been updated in
phase 02, it means that a connection failure has occurred during the MM
signalling phase (phase=02). By using the counters it is possible to see, for
example, how many connection failures have occurred in the MM signalling
phase during the measurement period on BSC basis.

3.2 Cause values included in observation report


The observation report includes variables for recording the starting and ending
cause/phase. These fields together offer detailed information on call
establishment and call clearing during handovers and basic calls:

.
In channel observation, the Phase in and the Cause in fields include the
establishment cause. The Phase out and the Cause out fields are for the
channel release cause.
. In handover observation, the Phase in and the Cause in fields are for the
handover starting cause. The Phase out and the Cause out fields are for
the handover ending cause.
. In clear code observation, the DX cause structure includes the Phase out
and the Cause out fields.

When the starting cause (Cause in ) is the same as the ending cause (Cause out ),
the event has ended successfully. Correspondingly, when these two variables
have different cause values, the signalling in question was not successful.

The DX cause variables that receive values after the observation are described
below:

Phase in This variable contains the phase for a channel seizure.

Cause in This variable contains the cause that indicates the reason for a
channel seizure. This can only be a success cause.

DX Causes in BSC Statistics

Phase out This variable contains the phase when a channel release is
started.

Cause out This variable contains the cause that indicates the reason for a
channel release. This can be a success or a failure cause.

A phase is a stage of the GSM layer 3 call or handover signalling in the BSC. All
the telecom signalling scenarios can be present as described in the list above and
their purpose is to identify a failure when it occurs.

For an overview of the topic, see Overview of Call Related DX Causes in BSC.

Paging/initial MS on CCCH (phase 1)

This phase covers the starting signalling of the mobile originating and the mobile
terminating call establishment. The dedicated channel can be a stand-alone
dedicated control channel SDCCH or a traffic channel TCH.

The ABIPRB is responsible for this phase. When the MS gains access to the
network, the ABIPRB sets the establishment cause to the cause field of a DX
cause. The success cause is conveyed to the next phase if the signalling is
finished successfully in this phase.

If a failure occurs, the success cause is overwritten with the failure cause and the
signalling continues as call clearing. The failure counter is updated by the
RRMPRB (Radio Resource Management Program Block) or, in some cases, by
the ABIPRB.

Call Related DX Causes in BSC

When a CLEAR COMMAND is received from the MSC, the AIVPRB knows
that the release is either normal or abnormal. The release is a normal one when
the MSC releases the channel, for example, at the end of a location update or at
the end of a call.

In a normal release, the AIVPRB sets the cause to normal_rel_c and sends the
appropriate message to the ABIPRB including the DX cause. The ABIPRB
checks the DX cause of the message and decides whether to update the counters.
When ABIPRB receives the normal_rel_c cause, it updates the counter 051015
Call Successful and a successful establishment counter according to the success
DX cause for establishment, which was received from the previous phase.

If a failure occurs during this phase, only one of the BSC clear code counters is
updated. The service level counters are not updated, because failures in this phase
do not affect the service of the MS.

External handover for source side (phase 9)

This phase covers the external handover signalling of the source side on an
SDCCH and a TCH.

The HASPRB is responsible for this phase.

The MS and the BTS send the measurement results to the BSC. The RCSPRB
decides on the basis of the results whether the handover is performed. If the
handover conditions are met, the RCSPRB sets the cause for the handover and
sends the appropriate signalling message forward, including the DX cause.

The HASPRB checks the cause of the handover and decides that an external
handover is to be made. Next, the HASPRB converts the cause for the appropriate
type of handover. The MSC indicates with a CLEAR COMMAND message that
the signalling has finished successfully. When the BSC receives the CLEAR
COMMAND, the AIVPRB knows if the clearing is normal and successful. It sets
the cause to normal_rel_c and sends the appropriate signalling message forward.
The HASPRB updates the successful handover counter and the ABIPRB updates
the successful establishment counter as well as the Call Successful counter
(051015) with the success DX cause for establishment, which was received from
the previous phase.

If a failure occurs before the CLEAR COMMAND is received from the MSC,
the success cause is overwritten. The signalling continues as handover clearing
and the failure counter is updated by the RRMPRB or, in some cases, the
HASPRB.

Call Related DX Causes in BSC

The HASPRB checks the cause for the handover and decides that an internal
handover should be made. Next, the HASPRB converts the DX cause for the
appropriate handover.

On the source side, the ABIPRB sends the original DX cause (success DX cause
for establishment) via the HASPRB to the target ABIPRB. It is taken into use on
the target side after the handover signalling has finished successfully.

The HASPRB updates the successful handover counter and the call continues as a

If a failure occurs on the source side before the assignment command is received,
the success cause is overwritten and the signalling continues as call clearing. The
failure counter is updated by the RRMPRB.

On the target side, the HASPRB sets the cause to source_fail_c. No failure
counters are updated because only one counter is updated for each failure; the
RRMPRB has updated the failure counter on the source side.

External handover for target side (phase 12)

This phase covers the external handover signalling for the target side on an
SDCCH and a TCH.

The HASPRB is responsible for this phase.

The BSC receives the HO REQUEST message with the relevant handover cause.
The AIVPRB sends the appropriate signalling message to the HASPRB,
including the DX cause. The HASPRB converts the cause into the relevant DX
cause for the external handover. If the signalling finishes successfully, the
HASPRB updates the handover success counter, and the DX cause is conveyed to
the following phase.

If a failure occurs, the successful DX cause is overwritten and the signalling


continues as handover clearing. The failure counter is updated by the RRMPRB
or, in some cases, by the HASPRB.

Functional phases of Call Related DX Causes in BSC

See Internal handover intra for source side for a successful case.

If a failure occurs before the assignment has been completed on the target side,
the appropriate failure counter is updated. The MS is able to return to the old
channel. If it returns to the old channel, it sends an assignment failure. This kind
of situation only affects the informative counters.

The HASPRB sets the flag restore_old as TRUE and includes it in the DX cause
that is sent to the ABIPRB to indicate that the MS returns to the old channel. The
source side ABIPRB receives the DX cause and the original establishment cause
is restored. The signalling continues on the old channel.

If the MS does not return to the old channel (the MS is lost), the HASPRB sets
the source_fail_c as the cause and sends it to the target side ABIPRB. Call
clearing is started with the real failure cause on the source side and the failure
counter is updated by the RRMPRB.

If the failure occurs after the assignment has been completed on the target side,
the success cause is overwritten and the signalling continues as call clearing.

between DX causes, BSSMAP causes and BSC traffic measurement counters.

The first table maps DX causes to BSSMAP causes, the second BSSMAP causes
to DX causes and the third traffic measurement to the DX causes which cause the
counters to increment.

For an overview of the topic, see Overview of Call Related DX Causes in BSC.
