•Counters from table(s): a = p_nbsc_traffic b = p_nbsc_service c = p_nbsc_ho d = p_nbsc_res_avail
•Ref 1; The counter002072 FACCH_SETUP_FAIL_DUR_PAGING used to compensate the counter
001084 TCH_ABIS_FAIL_CALL that is updated faultily after activation of FACCH
•Ref.2; Compensation needed since in case of Direct Access to super reuse TRX the
tch_norm_seiz is triggered in parallel with cell_sdcch_tch.

Segment related problems: There might be some problems with tch_norm_size if used on
BTS level and the BTS is part of the multisegment.

Before Implementing HR in the BSC & cells it is must to reconfigure the A interfacelinks to support Dual Rate.Check if failures are following some PCM either in Abis or A and fix accordingly. Otherwise it will give rise to high call failures mainly TCH_TR_fail due to mismatch of coding between TCH in Radio & "A" interface.
