If the system resources are sufficient. and cell change. Ltd 2-1 .. This helps maintain the system stability in the case of cell overload. or registration. an overloaded cell accepts only resources requests from an RRC connection setup only in case of an emergency call. and Iub resources. By using CAC. because the priority of such requests is very high. Moreover. The admission decision performed by using CAC is based on the following resources: code resources. see the Load Control Feature Parameter Description. change of existing services. detach. A radio link sends a resource request to the CAC functional module when additional resources are required. the admission decision is also based on the number of HSPA users. in cases such as RRC connection setup. the resource request is rejected. the resource request is accepted. power resources.WCDMA RAN Call Admission Control 2 Overview of Call Admission Control 2 Overview of Call Admission Control Call Admission Control (CAC) is used to determine whether the system resources in a cell are sufficient to accept the resource request. soft handover.

Other admission control strategies may be enabled or disabled through the ADD UCELLALGOSWITCH command. Admission based on the number of HSUPA users is also considered. the code resource-based admission is not required. For other R99 services. 3. 3. For details about HSDPA code allocation. the code resource-based admission is successful if the current remaining code resource is sufficient for the service. For HSDPA services. the RNC has to ensure that the remaining code does not exceed the DlHoCeCodeResvSf parameter after admission of the new service. 3-2 Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. Code and Iub resource-based admission control are mandatory and can not be disabled. For handover services. HSDPA admission control is described together with R99 service admission control in detail in this document.2 HSDPA Admission Control HSDPA admission control (WRFD-01061003 HSDPA Admission Control) enables the HSDPA service to access the network together with other R99 services by using the remaining power resource and other resources.1. Therefore. the code resource-based admission is successful if the current remaining code resource is sufficient for RRC connection setup. HSUPA admission control is described together with R99 service admission control in detail in this document. a call can be admitted only when all of these resources are available. see the HSDPA Feature Parameter Description.1 Overview Power-based admission decision is used for an RRC connection setup request and RAB admission decision.3 Technical Description WCDMA RAN Call Admission Control As shown in Figure 3-1.3.

Iub resource admission for HSDPA users is also performed during the admission control to allow HSDPA service and other R99 services to be admitted under a certain ensured QoS. The admission based on the number of HSDPA users is also considered.1. Code resource-based admission is implemented as follows: For RRC connection setup requests.3 HSUPA Admission Control HSUPA admission control (WRFD-01061202 HSUPA Admission Control) enables HSUPA services to access the network with other R99 services by using the remaining uplink cell load as well as other resources.3 CAC Based on Power Resource 3. the reserved codes are shared by all HSDPA services..

Iub resource admission and NodeB credit resource for HSUPA users are also performed during the admission control to allow HSUPA service and other R99 services to be admitted under a certain ensured QoS.

the HSDPA_UU_ADCTRL or HSUPA_UU_ADCTRL subparameter must also be set to 1. CAC based on power resource is performed by using one of the following three algorithms: Algorithm 1 (ALGORITHM_FIRST): admission decision based on predicted load increment upon admission of a new service Based on the current cell load (indicated by the uplink load factor and downlink TCP) and the predicted load increment due to admission of the new service. the RNC accepts the access request. Algorithm 2 (ALGORITHM_SECOND): admission decision based on the ENU Depending on the current ENU and the access request. Issue 04 (2010-12-20) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. If yes. Based on the current cell load (indicated by the uplink load factor and downlink TCP). If yes. Algorithm 3 (ALGORITHM_THIRD): admission decision based on no load increment upon admission of a new service This algorithm assumes that the load increment upon admission of a new service is 0. Ltd 3-3 . Otherwise. the RNC determines whether the ENU will exceed the threshold upon admitting a new service. the RNC determines whether the cell load will exceed the threshold upon admitting the new service. the RNC determines whether the cell load exceeds the threshold upon admitting the new service.. the RNC rejects the access request. Otherwise. the RNC rejects the request. Figure 3-2 shows the basic procedure of power-based admission decision. Figure 3-2 Basic procedure of power-based admission decision The basic principles of power-based admission decision are as follows: For an intra-frequency handover request. the RNC accepts the request. only downlink admission decision is required if downlink CAC is enabled.WCDMA RAN Call Admission Control 3 Technical Description To enable the power-based admission control for HSDPA/HSUPA. the RNC accepts the access request. Otherwise. If yes. the RNC rejects the access request.

If there is a rate downsizing request. Ltd Issue 04 (2010-12-20) .

which is generated by the E-DCH scheduling service. The RNC checks whether the Control RTWP Anti-interference function switch (NBMCacAlgoSwitch: RTWP_RESIST_DISTURB) is enabled. The RNC admits the HSUPA services when PBR-based decision is fulfilled or load-based decision is fulfilled. Uplink Power-Based Admission Decision for HSPA Cells Based on Algorithm 1 The procedure of uplink power-based admission decision for HSPA cells is similar to that for R99 cells.

Note that the predicted uplink load factor also includes the reserved common channel load which is specified by UlCCHLoadFactor. The RNC obtains the uplink RTWP of the cell and the background noise and calculates the current uplink load factor. The uncontrollable part is the difference between the current uplink load factor and controllable part.. The RNC calculates the uplink load increment based on the service request. or UlNonCtrlThdForOther). UlNonCtrlThdForAMR. the RNC accepts the access request. or UlNonCtrlThdForHo).

Issue 04 (2010-12-20) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co. the RNC must ensure that the total uplink load factor is lower than UlCellTotalThd and the power of non-controllable part is lower than the corresponding admission threshold. The QoS is measured on the basis of the Provided Bit Rate (PBR) of the users. If it is lower than 40%. 5. the uplink RTWP is divided into two parts: − Controllable part. If it is enabled. If the access request is rejected. UlNonCtrlThdForNonAMR. For HSUPA non-scheduling services. which is generated by the other services. The controllable part is calculated based on the RSEPS. the RNC performs the next step. and AF of the service. − PBR-based decision: It is used to check whether the QoS requirement of all existing users is met. 6. the total uplink load of the cell must be lower than UlCellTotalThd.
