Idle Mode- Cell Selection.


qQualmin: Minimum required (acceptable) quality level in the cell (dB). Used to set cell border between two cells. Used in UE functions for cell selection/reselection in idle mode and connected mode. SIB 3 for serving cell and SIB 11 for adjacent cells. QRXlevel Min- Minimum required (acceptable) RX level in the cell. (dBm). Used in UE functions for cell selection/reselection in idle mode and connected mode. SIB 3 serving cell, SIB 11 adjacent cells. maxTxPowerUl-The maximum UE transmission power on the RACH when accessing the system. Used in UE functions for cell selection/reselection in idle mode. SIB 3. P- UE maximum output power according to its class.

Cell Reselection procedure


Valid for UEs both in Idle and Connected mode. Triggered when the cell is no longer suitable. When UE that has camped normally finds a better cell. Performs ranking of cells that fulfills the cell selection and R criteria.

Cell Reselection procedure


Qmeas is the quality value of the received signal. Qhyst1(s)- hysteresis value read in system information of the serving cell. Used for GSM cells and WCDMA cells when qualMeasQuantity set to CPICH RSCP. Qhyst2(s)- hysteresis value when qualMeasQuantity set to CPICH Ec/No. Qoffset1( s,n)- offset between two cells read in system information of the serving cell. Used for GSM and WCDMA cells when qualMeasquantity is set to CPICH RSCP. Qoffset2( s,n)- offset between two cells read in system information of the serving cell. Used for GSM and WCDMA cells when qualMeasquantity is set to CPICH Ec/no.

Service based Hand over


Service based handover- direct speech users to GSM based on a service indicator ( SI) . SI= should and RAB combination= speech to GSM. servicebasedHosupport= True. Check if GSM handover is allowed for this RAB, C_gsmhoallowed and FDDGSMhosupport

Load Sharing
Enhances the performance of a Radio access network by pooling together resources. Two load sharing features available: Inter frequency load sharing and Directed retry to GSM.

All Rights Reserved Alcatel-Lucent 2008

Inter frequency load sharing


Diverts incoming traffic both CS and PS during RRC connection establishment from a more loaded cell to a less loaded one at the same location but on another frequency.

RRC connection reject message is sent . The message carries a Redirect info .

All Rights Reserved Alcatel-Lucent 2008

Directed Retry to GSM


Voice traffic diverted to GSM/ Blind handover. Best to chose the collocated GSM cell due to coverage match

Key HSDPA parameters


numHsPdschCodes- number of Pdsch codes that are fixed allocated in a cell. These codes cannot be used for DCH traffic even if there is no HSDPA traffic in a cell.
