Call Setup Success Rate (CSSR)

Call Setup Success Rate is the percentage of Successful TCH Seizures out of total Call Setup Attempts. Congestion on Traffic/Signalling channels as well as abnormal releases of signalling channels during call establishment reduce the call set-up success rate. Recommended Calculation Formula

CSSR=

Successful Call Setup TCH Seizures (ASSIGNMENT COMPLETE) Total Call Setup Requests (CHANNEL REQUIRED or ESTABLISH INDIC)

Notes: Messages pertaining to Voice Calls only need to be considered for evaluation of CSSR (SMS , Loc Update, IMSI Detach related requests as distinguished from Channel Required or Establish Indication messages need to be excluded). In case Total Call Setup Requests (i.e. denominator) is calculated from ESTABLISH INDICATION message, the formula needs to be multiplied with the term SDCCH Allocation Success Rate due to the fact that ESTABLISH INDICATION messages is only received once SDCCH is successfully allocated. SDCCH Alloc Success Rate is defined as the ratio of Successful SDCCH Allocations to the Total SDCCH Allocation Requests. Huawei CSSR Formula [ Call failures caused by MSC no response, CM REQ REJ, CREF, number error, called party unreachable, BSS disconnection, or non-BSS reasons, such as the MSC sends cancel messages, should not be considered. Only the BSS effect against the CSSR should be noted. ] CSSR = Immediate assign success rate [20401]*(1 - SDCCH drop rate [20203])*(successful TCH seizures for call [2106] / attempted TCH seizures for call [2090]) * 100%.

Immediate assign success rate [20401] = Successful immediate assignments[2186]/ Immediate assignment requests[2185]

SDCCH call drop [2070]: Description: in immediate assignment procedure and handover procedure, BSC measures SDCCH call drop when the process implementation fails due to some reason after MS has accessed the SDCCH assigned by BSC. Or this item is measured when call drop takes place due to some reason when MS is in normal seizure of SDCCH. After the above cases occur, BSC sends CLEAR REQUEST message to MSC. Measurement point: 1. This item is measured when BSC receives ERROR INDICATION message from BTS due to an abnormal case for a radio link layer connection. 2. This item is measured when BSC receives CONNECTION FAILURE INDICATION message from BTS because an active connection has been broken for some reason such as SDCCH link failure or hardware failure (see GSM 0508 for details). 3. In incoming BSC handover procedure on SDCCH, this item is measured in the target cell in the case of the failure of decoding HANDOVER DETECTION and HANDOVER COMPLETE message. 4. In the process of incoming BSC handover on SDCCH, this item is measured in the target cell when the timer for the target cell to wait for the HANDOVER COMPLETE message expires. 5. In the process outgoing BSC handover on SDCCH, this item is measured when the timer for the source cell to wait for CLEAR COMMAND message from MSC expires (T8 expires). 6. In the process of intra BSC handover on SDCCH, this item is measured in the source cell when the timer for the source cell or the target cell to wait for HANDOVER COMPLETE message expires. 7. This item is measured when the RSL link of the TRX that the call is running on disconnect, which will cause call drop, this item measures call drop on SDCCH for RSL disconnection.

Successful SDCCH seizures (all) [2049]: Description: In the immediate assignment and handover procedures, MS notifies BSS after it successfully seizes the SDCCH allocated by the network. This item is measured when BSC receives the notification. Measurement point: "SD-SUCC-C1" in Figure 1: Immediate assignment procedure-channel seizure procedure, "SD-SUCC-C2" in Figure 2: Intra-BSC handover channel seizure procedure and Figure 3: Incoming BSC handover channel seizure procedure "SD-SUCC-C3" in indicate the measurement

Figure 3: Incoming BSC handover channel seizure procedure

Successful TCH seizures for call [2106]: Description: In the assignment procedure, upon reception of an ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message from MSC, BSC allocates TCH (for voice data transmission) to MS. After channel allocation is successfully completed, BSC requests BTS to activate this channel. BTS shall return a CHANNEL ACTIVATION ACKNOWLEDGE message to BSC if it allows channel activation operations. Upon reception of the CHANNEL ACTIVATION ACKNOWLEDGE message, BSC sends ASSIGNMENT COMMAND to MS, which sends ASSIGNMENT COMPLETE to BSC after it successfully accesses the new channel. Measurement point: "TCH-SUCC-C51~53" in Figure 4: Assignment procedure-channel seizure procedure indicates the measurement point of this item in the calling procedure. 1. In the assignment procedure, this item is measured when BSC sends an ASSIGNMENT COMPLETE message to MSC. The case that the target cell of directed retry sends ASSIGNMENT COMPLETE message to MSC after successfully completes directed retry is excluded. 2. In the assignment procedure, if directed retry is successfully implemented and the target cell for direct retry belongs to other BSC, MSC shall send a CLEAR COMMAND to the originating cell to clear the previous connections. This item is measured when the originating cell receives the CLEAR COMMAND message. 3. In the assignment procedure, if directed retry is successfully implemented and the target cell for direct retry belongs to the current

Abnormal TCH Releases Total TCH Communications (including Successful Incoming HO)

Huawei DCR formula: DCR = TCH call drop [2142] / (successful TCH seizures (all) [2105]Successful intracell handovers[2265])*100%. TCH call drop [2142]: Description: in assignment procedure and traffic channel handover procedure, BSC measures TCH call drop when the process implementation fails due to some reason after MS has accessed the TCH assigned by BSC. Or this item is measured when call drop takes place due to some reason when MS is in normal seizure of TCH. After the above cases occur, BSC sends CLEAR REQUEST message to MSC to request to clear the call. Measurement point: this item is measured if call drop occurs on TCH in the following processes. Figure 5, Figure 6, Figure 7 A1 and A2 indicate the main measurement points. 1) In the case TCH serves as traffic channel, this item is measured when BSC receives ERROR INDICATION message from BTS due to an abnormal case for a radio link layer connection. See GSM 0858 protocol. 2) In the case TCH is seized as traffic channel, this item is measured when BSC receives the CONNECT FAILURE INDICATION message from BTS due to an active connection has been broken for some reason such as TCH link failure or hardware failure etc. See GSM 0508 for details. 3) In the case TCH serves as traffic channel, this item is measured when incoming BSC handover is initiated and the timer for the target cell to wait for HANDOVER COMPLETE message expires. 4) In the case TCH serves as traffic channel, this item is measured when outgoing BSC handover is initiated and the timer for the source cell to wait for CLEAR COMMAND message from MSC expires (T8 expires). 5) In Intra-BSC/Intra-Cell handover procedure, the target cell sends Inter Clear Request to the source cell when the timer for the target cell to wait for HANDOVER COMPLETE from MS expires, in this case, this item is measured

Handover Success Rate (cell level) is the percentage of successfully completed inter-cell handovers out of the total executed inter-cell handovers.
HSR = Successful Inter-cell Handover (HANDOVER COMPLETE) Total Executed Inter-cell Handover (HANDOVER COMMAND)

Notes Any of the Incoming or Outgoing Handover scenario may be used for evaluation as per PTML discretion. The threshold value would be applicable both for intra and inter BSC handover cases. Huawei HSR formula: HSR = (Successful incoming internal inter cell handovers [2239] + Successful incoming interBSC inter cell handovers [2240] + Successful outgoing internal inter cell handovers [2243] + Successful outgoing interBSC inter cell handovers [2244]) / (Incoming internal inter cell handovers [2200] + Outgoing internal inter cell handovers [2205] + Inter BSC incoming cell handovers [2290] + Inter BSC outgoing cell handovers [2291]) *100%. Incoming HSR = (Successful incoming internal inter cell handovers [2239] + Successful incoming interBSC inter cell handovers [2240])/ (Incoming internal inter cell handovers [2200] + Inter BSC incoming cell handovers [2290]) *100%. Outgoing HSR = (Successful outgoing internal inter cell handovers [2243] + Successful outgoing interBSC inter cell handovers [2244]) / (Outgoing internal inter cell handovers [2205] + Inter BSC outgoing cell handovers [2291]) *100%.

Handover distribution PBGT (cell level) is the percentage of successful outgoing inter-cell handovers with the cause Power Budget out of the total successful outgoing inter-cell handovers triggered in the cell. Threshold value indicates the minimum limit for the percentage of successful handovers with the cause power budget. Note An outgoing inter-cell handover with the cause power budget occurs when a neighbor cell gets the status of a better server than the existing cell.

Huawei Handover distribution PBGT formula Handover distribution PBGT = Successful outgoing inter cell handovers for better cell [3607] / Successful outgoing inter cell handovers[3598] *100%

Successful outgoing inter cell handovers[3598] Description: the successful handovers for the MS initiates from the current cell to the specified target cell. If the target cell and the current cell are in different BSCs, the handover is interBSC handover; otherwise the handover is internal intercell handover. Measurement point: 1) In internal intercell handover procedure, the target cell is the registered adjacent cell. This item is measured when the source cell (the current cell) receives the Inter Clear Request message (cause: internal intercell handover success) from the target cell. 2) In interBSC handover procedure, the target cell is the registered adjacent cell.

cell to the specified target cell due to " better cell". If the target cell and the current cell are in different BSCs, the handover is inter BSC handover, otherwise the handover is internal intercell handover. For internal intercell handover, the handover cause is carried in HANDOVER PERFORMED message sent to MSC, while the cause for inter BSC handover is carried in the corresponding HANDOVER REQUIRED message. Measurement point: 1) In internal intercell handover procedure due to "better cell", the target cell is the registered adjacent cell. This item is measured when the source cell (the current cell) receives the Intercell Handover Request message (cause: internal intercell handover success) from the target cell. 2) In inter BSC handover due to "better cell", the target cell is the registered adjacent cell. This item is measured when the source cell (the current cell) receives the CLEAR COMMAND message (cause: handover success) from MSC

Handover distribution RxQual DL

Handover distribution RxQual DL (cell level) is the percentage of outgoing inter-cell handovers triggered with the cause downlink signal quality out of the total outgoing inter-cell handovers triggered in the cell. Threshold value indicates the maximum limit for the percentage of handovers to be triggered with the cause downlink signal quality. Note An outgoing inter-cell handover with the cause downlink signal quality is triggered when the downlink signal quality falls below a preset threshold. Huawei Handover distribution RxQual DL Formula: Handover distribution - RxQual DL = Attempted outgoing inter cell handovers for downlink quality [3586] / Attempted outgoing inter cell handovers [3584] *100% Attempted outgoing inter cell handovers for downlink quality [3586]:

Description: when BSC initiates a handover, it will receive Handover Indication message containing "handover cause" from LAPD module. The attempted handovers are measured according to the different handover causes in this message. This item is used to measure the attempted handovers (internal intercell handover or inter BSC handover, determined by the source cell and target cell) that the current cell initiates to the specified target cell due to down quality. This item is used to indicate the frequency that the current cell initiates the handovers to the specified target cell due to downlink quality. Measurement point: 1)In internal intercell handover procedure, the target cell is the registered adjacent cell. This item is measured when the source cell (the current cell) sends an Intercell Handover Request message to the specified target cell due to downlink quality after the handover algorithm decision. 2)In inter BSC handover procedure, the target cell is the registered adjacent cell. In the case the source cell initiates handover due to downlink quality, This item is measured when the source cell (the current cell) receives the HANDOVER COMMAND message from MSC, Attempted outgoing inter cell handovers [3584]: Description: the attempted handovers that the current cell (source cell) initiates to the specified target cell. If the target cell and the current cell are in different BSCs, the handover is interBSC handover; otherwise the handover is internal intercell handover. This item is used to indicate the frequency of the handover from the current cell to the specified target cell. Measurement point: 1)In internal intercell handover procedure, the target cell is the registered adjacent cell. This item is measured when the source cell (the current cell) sends an Intercell Handover Request message to the specified target cell after the handover algorithm decision. 2)In interBSC handover procedure, the target cell is the registered adjacent cell. This item is measured when the source cell (the current cell) receives the HANDOVER COMMAND message from MSC, 8 Grade of Service- SDCCH (GoS-SDCCH)

SDCCH Allocation Requests.

GoS-SDCCH =
Total SDCCH Allocation Requests

Huawei GoS-SDCCH Formula: GoS-SDCCH = Attempted SDCCH seizures meeting SDCCH overflow [2062] / Attempted SDCCH seizures (all) [2048] *100% Attempted SDCCH seizures meeting SDCCH overflow [2062]: Description: in immediate assignment and handover procedure, this item is measured in the case that the MS or MSC requests BSC to allocate SDCCH but BSS has no available SDCCH. Measurement point: if the requested channel is SDCCH but the cell has no available SDCCH, this item is measured on the following occasions: 1. BSC receives the CHANNEL REQUIRED message from the BTS. 2. The target cell receives the Intercell Handover Request message from other cells of the BSC. 3. The BSC receives the HANDOVER REQUEST message from other BSC. Attempted SDCCH seizures (all) [2048]: Description: In the immediate assignment procedure, MS directly requests BSS to allocate channels. In the incoming BSC handover procedures, MSC requests BSS to allocate channels to MS. In the intra-BSC handover procedure, BSC itself requests BSS to reallocate radio channels. In the above procedures, if the requested channel type is SDCCH, this item shall be measured after BSC receives a relevant request. Measurement point: "SD-ATT-C1" in Figure 1, "SD-ATT-C2" in Figure 2 and "SD-ATT-C3" in Figure 3 indicate the measurement points of this statistic item in the calling procedure. 1. In the immediate assignment procedure, this item is measured when BSC receives a CHANNEL REQUIRED message from BTS and the requested channel type is SDCCH (requested by MS, or by the system during the second allocation procedure). 2. In the intra-BSC SDCCH handover procedure (the originating cell and target cell belong to the same BSC), this item is measured when the target cell receives an Intercell Handover Request message (internal message in Huawei BSC) from the originating cell. This item is also

measured on intra-cell handover occasions. The mere difference is that the target cell and originating cell are the same. 3. In the inter-BSC handover procedure, this item is measured when BSC receives a HANDOVER REQUEST message from other BSC, and the handover takes place on SDCCH.
