the BSC sends the paging message to the corresponding BTS. complaints decrease and customer satisfaction increases. The paging algorithm determines the paging efficiency of the GBSS. This can effectively improve and ensure the paging capacity of the BSC. Huawei GBSS paging algorithm guarantees the paging processing capability while maintaining the paging efficiency and reducing the paging load. the PS paging message is transmitted on the PCCCH. paging message loss can be avoided in this mode. If PCCCH is not configured. When there is downlink data to be transferred to the MS. the MS receiving common paging messages on channel N can get the paging message on the next paging channel N+2. The BTS then sends the paging message to the MS on the assigned PCH.provides the following benefits:  The paging processing capability is one of the KPIs that indicate the system capability.BSC6900 Basic Feature Description Benefits Paging is a basic feature for the operators to provide the CS speech services. simultaneous processing of multiple pages. The BSCs determine the paging cell based on the location area and determine the paging group that the MS belongs to based on the IMSI. Huawei GBSS supports paging message queuing. If there is a paging message to the MS. the MS in idle state listens to the paging channel all the time. Thus. paging retransmission. The paging algorithm prevents the paging from being missed so that the subscriber can receive calls. and paging flow control. The pagings are classified into PS pagings and CS pagings. When a call arrives at the MSC that serves the MS. the paging message of this group may be transmitted on any PCH of the same timeslot.2 (2009-06-30) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. the SGSN initiates the PS paging procedure. When dynamic change of PCH configuration occurs.  Paging message queuing The transmission of paging messages on the Um interface is limited on the basis of paging V1. That is. the MSC determines the location area of the MS and then sends the paging message to all BSCs in this location area..  Description Paging procedure: To answer the call timely. Ltd Page 20 of 187 . If a packet common control channel (PCCCH) is configured. Then. Huawei GBSS supports the following three standard paging modes:  Common paging mode The paging message is transmitted on only the configured PCH and the IMSI defined channel. The paging algorithm. the PS message is transmitted on PCH.  Complete paging mode When an MS group is informed in this mode. the MS responds to the paging and completes the subsequent procedure as a called party.  Spaced paging mode The BSS adds the paging message of a group to another paging channel to avoid temporary overload. The CS paging message is sent on PCH.

the BTS selects the appropriate paging messages from the queue to transmit on the corresponding block. during the period when the BTS waits for transmission.. In this way. Enhancement None. One retransmission is initiated by the CN to handle long intermittence during the paging transmission. the high efficiency of the paging capacity. V1.BSC6900 Basic Feature Description groups.  Paging retransmission Generally. the BTS processes these messages according to the FIFO principle. Huawei BSS supports the paging retransmission. The paging message of one paging group can only be transmitted on the paging block corresponding to the paging group. to improve the efficiency of the paging processing. both the CN and BSS of the GSM network allow paging retransmission. and the smoothness and stability of services.2 (2009-06-30) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. the BTS packs these paging messages or several of the paging messages as appropriate type of paging request on the Um interface. Then. The other retransmission is implemented on the BTS. but each paging request on the Um interface may pack a maximum of four paging messages sent to four different MSs. That is. Therefore. If many paging messages have the same transmission priority. Hence. The retransmission initiated by the BTS takes a relatively short time. based on the maximum combination principle. a maximum of four paging messages can be included. In detail. When the sending block of a paging group is polled. when there is no paging message or immediate assignment message to be transmitted on the corresponding sending block. the paging messages from the BSC are buffered on the BTS. the BSS initiates the selective flow control based on the current network situation to ensure the robustness and proper operation of the system. The retransmission initiated by the CN takes a relatively long time. The paging request is then sent on the sending block to the MSs. Ltd Page 21 of 187 . the paging message queuing is implemented on the BTS.  Simultaneous processing of multiple paging messages Each paging command from the BSC comprises only one paging message sent to one MS. the number of paging commands to the MS included in the paging message on the Um interface should be as many as that is specified. the paging commands of multiple MSs can be transmitted on the Um interface. A twolevel retransmission mechanism is provided. Therefore. Dependency Impacts on the BSC hardware None. the paging messages that are already transmitted are retransmitted on this sending block. The maximum number of paging retransmissions can be specified by the system parameter. That is.  Paging flow control When the paging flow from the MSC exceeds the processing capability of the BSS. the two-level retransmission mechanism reduces the signaling load on the Abis interface and A interface. the BTS searches for the paging messages to be transmitted in the paging queue corresponding to the paging group. Upon the transmission.

With the authentication. The network initiates the authentication procedure in the following situations:   The MS requests to change the information restored in VLR or HLR.

At the same time. The bottom layer is composed of DCS1800 pico cells. The second layer is composed of DCS1800 micro cells with smaller coverage. Edge handover: Edge handover is a type of rescue handover based on the signal level. The inter-layer handover is not performed between cells at the same layer and the same hierarchy. The third layer is composed of GSM900 macro cells. however. These are the most widely used cells of the current system. When the receive level of the serving cell is lower than the edge handover threshold and the P/N criterion is met within a period of measurement time. Bad quality handover: The transmission quality of the link is measured in bit error ratio (BER). penalty is performed on the originating cell after a successful handover to prevent a handover back to the cell due to other causes. The PBGT handover is based on the path loss. Bad quality level may be resulted from low signal power or channel interference. When the receive quality of the serving cell is lower than the BQ handover threshold. If the following situations occur in a layered and hierarchical network: V1. the intra-cell handover is recommended. The BSC determines the quality of a radio link based on the quality level in the MR. which aims to meet the requirements of the hot spot or the blind spot. Then. the inter-RAT handover is performed if allowed.BSC6900 Basic Feature Description priority based on the ranking in the preprocessing. This procedure is called BQ handover. Level 0 is the best and level 7 is the worst. There are eight quality levels ranging from 0 to 7. The cell at the lower layer has a higher priority than the cell at the higher layer. Compared with other handover algorithms. the algorithm determines to perform the emergency handover of other types. the BSC starts the handover algorithm for the MS to maintain proper communication quality. the receive level of the target cell should be at least one hysteresis value (hysteresis of inter-cell handover) higher than the receive level of the serving cell. the network starts the interference handover for the MS to maintain proper communication quality if the receive quality deteriorates to a certain degree. Hierarchical handover: The radio systems with the same coverage can be divided into four layers.. If interference handover is triggered. If the candidate GSM cells do not meet the handover conditions and there are neighboring 3G cells available. To trigger an edge handover. Therefore. Inter-layer handover: This handover is performed between different layers or between different hierarchies at the same layer.

BSC6900 Basic Feature Description

Summary
Immediate assignment and assignment are two important procedures during the call setup. Through the immediate assignment procedure, the MS can establish an RR connection with the network. Through the assignment procedure, the network assigns TCHs to the MS. In this way, a stable service connection is established between the network and the MS.

Benefits
Immediate assignment and assignment are basic features for the operators to provide the CS speech services. Excellent immediate assignment and assignment algorithms ensure relatively high KPIs, and thus improves the radio network performance.

Description
Huawei GBSS supports the immediate assignment procedure, immediate assignment combination, and corresponding assignment procedure specified in GSM specifications. The purpose of the immediate assignment is to establish the RR connection between the MS and the network. Through the assignment procedure, the BSS assigns the TCH to the MS. The assignment is classified into early assignment for MOC, late assignment for MOC, very early assignment for MOC, early assignment for MTC, late assignment for MTC, and very early assignment for MTC.

Immediate assignment The immediate assignment procedure is initiated every time the MS responds to the paging request or the MS initiates a service request. The purpose of the immediate assignment is to establish the RR connection between the MS and the network. In the immediate assignment procedure, the MS sends a CHANNEL REQUEST message on the random access channel (RACH). The network then responds with an IMMEDIATE ASSIGNMENT message to instruct the MS to access the network through the dedicated channel. This channel can be a stand-alone dedicated control channel (SDCCH) or a TCH. Huawei BSC supports cell-level SDCCH immediate assignment and TCH immediate assignment.

Immediate assignment combination Each immediate assignment from the BSC on the Abis interface includes the response for only one MS's channel request message. The response messages for channel request on the Um interface, however, are of three types: immediate assignment, immediate assignment extended and immediate assignment reject. One immediate assignment extended may include the responses for two immediate assignment messages and one immediate assignment reject may include the immediate assignment commands (reject type) for a maximum of four MSs. To improve the processing efficiency on the Um interface, the BTS encapsulates as many immediate assignment commands as possible into one immediate assignment extended message or immediate assignment reject message on the Um interface and sends it to the MS. This type of processing method is called immediate assignment combination.

Early assignment for MOC
Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd Page 34 of 187

V1.2 (2009-06-30)

BSC6900 Basic Feature Description

Early assignment for MOC is a procedure in which the MOC is assigned a TCH before the call is established. After the immediate assignment is complete, the network sends the assignment command to the MS, requesting the calling party to seize the TCH even if the Altering message is not received. In this case, the ring tone is generated by the network.

Late assignment for MOC In terms of signaling, the network sends the assignment command to the MS only after the Alerting message from the called party is received, requesting the calling party to seize the TCH. In this case, the ring tone is generated by the MS because no TCH is available before the connection is established.

Very early assignment for MOC The very early assignment for MOC is a procedure in which the TCH instead of the SDCCH is assigned to the calling party during the immediate assignment phase. This function increases the service access speed. The system performs the authentication, ciphering, other signaling exchanges, and subsequent call connection procedures on the TCH. After receiving the ASS REQ message from the network, the BSS changes the TCH used for signaling exchanges to a real TCH through the Mode Modify command.

Early assignment for MTC Early assignment for MTC is a procedure in which the MTC is assigned with a TCH before the call is established. In terms of signaling, the MTC establishment is triggered when the Paging Request message from the network is received. After the immediate assignment is complete, the network sends the assignment command to the MS, requesting the called party to seize the TCH even if the Altering message is not received. In this case, the ring tone is generated by the network.

Late assignment for MTC In terms of signaling, the network sends the assignment command to the MS only after the Alerting message is received, requesting the called party to seize the TCH. In this case, the ring tone is generated by the MS because no TCH is available before the connection is established.

Very early assignment for MTC The very early assignment for MTC is a procedure in which the TCH instead of the SDCCH is assigned to the called party during the immediate assignment phase. This function increases the service access speed. The system performs the authentication, ciphering, other signaling exchanges, and subsequent call connection procedures on the TCH. After receiving the ASS REQ message from the network, the BSS modifies the TCH used for signaling exchanges to a real TCH through the Mode Modify command.

GBFD-110503 Call Reestablishment
Availability
This feature is available from GBSS6.1.

Summary
When the MS encounters a radio link failure during the call, the call reestablishment procedure can be used to reestablish the radio link connection so that the original call can proceed.

Benefits
The call is reestablished quickly after a call drop caused by the radio link failure. This mechanism shortens the call intermission, and thus improves the user experience.

Description
Call reestablishment is a procedure for connection recovery after the MS encounters a radio link failure during the call. Call reestablishment may occur in a new cell or new location area. The initiation of the call reestablishment attempt depends on the call status and whether the cell allows call reestablishment. After detecting a radio link failure, the BTS sends a radio link failure message to the BSC. The BSC then releases the corresponding radio resource and waits for the MS to initiate the call reestablishment. After detecting a radio link failure, the MS sends a Channel Request message for call reestablishment) in the selected cell (the original cell or a new cell) to the BSS. The BSS then initiates and completes the immediate assignment procedure. After the immediate assignment is complete, the MS sends a call reestablishment request to the MSC. The MSC initiates the encryption and assignment procedures. The call establishment is almost complete. The MSC sends a status query message to the MS to confirm whether the call status or attach status matches the status information stored on the MSC. The MS sends the MSC a status message to report the call status or attach status. The call reestablishment is complete. During the call reestablishment, the MS cannot return to idle mode. Therefore, when the MS selects a cell in a different location area as the target cell for call reestablishment, the location updating procedure cannot be performed until this call terminiates.

Availability
This feature is available from GBSS7.0.

Summary
Based on the Platform of Advanced Radio Controller (PARC), BSC cabinet/subrack sharing enables the BSC, TC, PCU, and MGW to share one cabinet.

Benefits
Currently, operators become more and more concerned about the cost, so the reduction of equipment construction and maintenance costs becomes increasingly important. This feature enables operators to reduce the cost from the following aspects and to realize smooth evolution from 2G network to 3G network.

The shared-cabinet technique helps to achieve network integration, save the equipment floor space, and reduce the O&M cost. Multiple equipment that share one cabinet can unify the maintenance for 2G and 3G networks, the access and core networks. Then, the O&M cost is reduced.

Description
Cabinet sharing among the BSC, TC, and MGW: Huawei BSC allows the BSC, TC, and MGW to share one cabinet for reducing space and cost. Huawei softswitch products include the MSC server (MSS) and MGW. The MSC server is responsible for call control and signaling, and the MGW is responsible for switching and service bearing. The equipment can be deployed in a distributed way: The MSC server is deployed in the center of a big city and the MGW is deployed in a place close to the access network. With this optimized networking configuration, the calling party and called party are controlled by the same MGW and the voice data is only switched in the MGW instead of the MSC server, thus saving transmission resources.

GBFD-113001 SDCCH Dynamic Adjustment
Availability
This feature is available from GBSS6.1.

Summary
This feature can dynamically adjust the number of SDCCHs according to the load of the TCHs and SDCCHs. In this way, the effect of the initial configuration of the SDCCH on the system is minimized and radio resources are fully utilized.

Benefits
This feature provides the following benefits:

Optimizes the usage of the TCHs and SDCCHs, and reduces the occurrence of SDCCH congestion. Minimizes the impact of the initial configuration of the SDCCH on the system, reduces the requirements on the accuracy of the estimation of the SDCCH, and reduces the workload for changing the configuration.

Description
In normal cases, the demands on the SDCCH are calculated on the basis of the traffic model. That is, current traffic distribution and related statistics. The increase of the SMS service, however, leads to the more demands on the SDCCH. Thus, the prediction on the demanded SDCCHs becomes very complex.

network due to no available SDCCH. In this case, the SDCCH dynamic adjustment feature can convert the TCH into the SDCCH dynamically to enable more MSs to access the network. The dynamic adjustment of SDCCH takes cell as unit. If the SDCCH dynamic adjustment is allowed, the system automatically converts the TCH into the SDCCH, provided that the following conditions are met:
 

The number of idle SDCCHs is lower than or equal to the threshold of the idle SDCCH. The number of SDCCHs in a cell is lower than or equal to the maximum number of SDCCHs in a cell. The number of idle TCHs in a cell is higher than 4 or higher than the number of TRXs configured in a cell. At the same time, the BSC sends the configuration command to the BTS to convert the TCH into the SDCCH, and updates the channel table of the BSC.

When the number of SDCCHs is higher than the defined threshold after the TCH Minimum Recovery Time, the SDCCHs are converted into the TCHs. Forced restoration of SDCCH: If you disable the SDCCH/TCH dynamical adjustment feature, all the SDCCHs converted from TCH are restored to their original form (TCH). This feature can reduce the requirement on the accuracy of the estimation of the demand on SDCCH, and reduce the workload for changing the configuration. In addition, it can increase the system capacity and the call access rate.

Summary
With this feature, you can test the uplink interference on the basis of the traffic measurement without the test device.

Benefits
This feature provides the following benefits:

The maintenance personnel can test the uplink interference without the test device. In this way, the accuracy of the frequency configuration is improved and an overview of the uplink interference is provided. Operators can evaluate the electromagnetic environment without the addition of new devices, which is an observation method of network planning and optimization. This feature improves the maintenance efficiency and reduces the O&M cost for operators.

Description
This feature uses the idle TCH to test uplink receive level of all the frequencies of the specified frequency band. Engineers can use this result to select a proper operating frequency. This feature is introduced to Huawei products for testing the interference. Because this feature scans the uplink level, the result indicates the signal strength of the frequency in the cell. Engineers can use the result to select a proper operating frequency. The GBSS implements the cell frequency scanning on the basis of the traffic measurement result. Under the condition that the call is not affected, the feature uses an idle frame in a TCH in the cell (the TCH in the BCCH TRX is assigned preferably) to periodically scan the uplink receive level of specified frequencies. It takes about one minute to scan 50 frequencies. A frequency scan task can register up to 124 frequencies. It takes about three minutes to traverse all the frequencies. The result of the frequency scanning is the average value of the uplink receive levels scanned from the beginning of the scan task to the end of the scan task. The uplink frequency scan feature is to test the interference level that affects the uplink receive quality in the radio environment. It can measure the uplink interference of a specific frequency.

BSC6900 Basic Feature Description

This feature supports GPRS CS-1 and CS-2 specified in the GSM specifications.

Description
According to the GSM specifications, the GPRS can use four coding schemes, namely, CS-1, CS-2, CS-3, and CS-4. CS-1 and CS-2 have a data rate of 9.05 kbit/s and 13.4 kbit/s (containing the header of the RLC block). This ensures 100% and 90% cell coverage, thus meeting the cochannel interference requirement of C/I = 9 dB. The requirements for the radio transmission quality vary with the transmission rate of the coding schemes. The higher the transmission rate, the higher the requirements for the radio transmission quality. The half-rate and 1/3 rate bits in the RLC blocks of CS-1 and CS-2 are used for the forward error correction (FEC). Thus, the C/I requirement is reduced. During the data transmission, the BSC dynamically adjusts the channel coding or decoding mode according to the retransmission rate of the RLC blocks transmitted on the uplink or downlink TBF. This improves the transmission rate on the basis of guaranteed transmission quality, thus fully utilizing the radio resources. This feature supports CS-1, CS-2, and dynamic adjustment between CS-1 and CS-2.

Enhancement
