2 Overview

Overview

In an early phase of EPS construction, operators who own a mature UTRAN or GERAN can
protect their investments in legacy CS networks and reduce their investments in the EPS by
using legacy CS networks to provide CS services.
Currently, CSFB and voice over IP (VoIP) over IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) are the two
standard solutions to provide voice services for E-UTRAN UEs. After the technological
maturity, industry chain, and deployment costs of the two methods are well weighed, CSFB is
chosen to serve as an interim solution for voice service access before mature commercial use
of IMS.

eRAN
CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description

2 Overview

2.1 Overview
With the CSFB solution, when a UE initiates a CS service, the mobility management entity
(MME) instructs the UE to fall back to the legacy CS network before the UE performs the
service. CSFB is a session setup procedure. UEs fall back to CS networks before CS sessions
are set up, and they always stay in the CS networks during the CS sessions. For details, see
3GPP TS 23.272 V8.5.0.
The eNodeB handles the CSFB for different types of CS services in a uniform way such as the
voice service, SMS, LCS, and emergency calls.

2.2 Benefits
CSFB brings the following benefits:
l

Facilitates voice services for the LTE network.

Helps operators reduce costs by reusing legacy CS networks and not deploying an IMS
network.

2.3 Architecture
CSFB is applicable to scenarios where the CS network of the UTRAN/GERAN has the same
or larger coverage area than that of the E-UTRAN.
Figure 2-1 shows the network architecture for CSFB to UTRAN/GERAN.
Figure 2-1 Network architecture for CSFB to UTRAN/GERAN

Table 2-1 describes the elements of the network architecture in Figure 2-1.

Function

SGs interface

l Is an interface between the MME and the MSC server.


l Assists mobility management and paging between the EPS and the
CS network.
l Transmits mobile originated (MO) and mobile terminated (MT)
SMS messages.
l Transmits messages related to combined attach and combined TAU/

Function

E-UTRAN

l Forwards paging messages related to CSFB.


l Selects target cells for CSFB for E-UTRAN UEs.
l Supports one or more of the following functions:
PS redirection to UTRAN or GERAN, if PS redirection is used
as the CSFB mechanism.
PS handover to UTRAN or GERAN, if PS handover is used as
the CSFB mechanism.
CCO without NACC to GERAN, if CCO without NACC is used
as the CSFB mechanism; RIM for acquiring the system
information of GERAN cells, if NACC is used as the CSFB
mechanism.
RIM for acquiring the system information of UTRAN or
GERAN cells, in addition to PS redirection, if flash CSFB is
used as the CSFB mechanism.

UTRAN/
GERAN

Supports one or more of the following functions:


l Incoming handovers from the E-UTRAN, if PS handover is used as
the CSFB mechanism.
l RIM for delivering the system information of GERAN cells to
eNodeBs, if CCO with NACC is used as the CSFB mechanism.
l RIM for delivering the system information of UTRAN or GERAN
cells to eNodeBs, in addition to PS redirection, if flash CSFB is
used as the CSFB mechanism.
NOTE
The UTRAN and GERAN do not need to provide extra functions to support PS
redirection. The GERAN does not need to provide extra functions to support
CCO without NACC.

SGSN

l Supports the follow-up procedures performed for the PS handover,


including data forwarding, path switching, RAU, and encryption
and authentication.
l Supports RIM, which is required when flash CSFB or CCO with
NACC is used as the CSFB mechanism.

eCoordinator

Is a network element provided by Huawei, and is optional. The


eCoordinator supports the RIM procedure.

To implement CSFB to provide CS services for UEs on the E-UTRAN, all mobile switching
centers (MSCs) that serve overlapping areas with the E-UTRAN coverage must be upgraded
to support functions involving the SGs interface. The SGs interface is between an MSC and a
mobility management entity (MME), and functions involving the SGs interface include
combined attach, combined TAU/LAU (TAU is short for tracking area update, and LAU is
short for location area update), paging, and SMS. If the live network uses an MSC pool, only
one or multiple MSCs in the MSC pool need to be upgraded to support the SGs interface.

2.4 CSFB Mechanisms


2.4.1 CSFB to UTRAN
Based on the capabilities of UEs and networks, three fallback mechanisms are available for an
eNodeB to perform CSFB to UTRAN:
l

R8 PS Redirection

After receiving a CS Fallback Indicator, the eNodeB sends an RRC Connection Release
message containing frequency information about the target UTRAN to the UE. Based on the
received frequency information, the UE searches for a UTRAN cell, obtains the system
information of the UTRAN cell, and initiates initial access and CS services.
l

R9 PS Redirection (Flash CSFB)

After receiving a CS Fallback Indicator, the eNodeB sends an RRC Connection Release
message containing information about a target UTRAN frequency as well as system
information about multiple target cells to the UE. Based on the received frequency
information, the UE searches for a UTRAN cell. As the UE obtains system information about
the target cell, the UE initiates initial access and CS services in the target cell, thereby
reducing voice delay.
l

PS Handover

The UE is handed over to the UMTS network through the PS handover procedure between the
eNodeB and the UMTS network. After the handover, the UE initiates CS services in the target
cell.

UEs.

2.4.2 CSFB to GERAN


Based on the capabilities of UEs and networks, five fallback mechanisms are available for an
eNodeB to perform CSFB to GERAN:
l

R8 PS Redirection

For details, see 2.4.1 CSFB to UTRAN.


l

R9 PS Redirection (Flash CSFB)

For details, see 2.4.1 CSFB to UTRAN.


l

CCO

After receiving a CS Fallback Indicator, the eNodeB sends a MobilityFromEUTRACommand


message containing information about a target GERAN cell to the UE, and instructs the UE to
access the target cell. The UE needs to be synchronized to the specified cell, obtains system
information about the target cell, and accesses the cell to initiate CS services.
l

CCO with NACC

When the LTE-to-GSM RIM procedure is enabled, which indicates that NACC is enabled, the
eNodeB delivers system information about the target cell when triggering CCO. The UE
directly initiates access and a CS service to the target cell and does not need to read system
information about the target cell, shortening delays.
l

PS Handover

For details, see 2.4.1 CSFB to UTRAN.

UEs.

3 CSFB to UTRAN

If this option is selected, the eNodeB triggers blind handover directly.

If this option is cleared, the eNodeB determines whether to trigger inter-RAT


measurements or blind handover based on the UE capability:

If the UE supports UTRAN measurements, the eNodeB triggers inter-RAT


measurements.

If the UE does not support UTRAN measurements, the eNodeB triggers a blind
handover.

For details about the measurement and handover, see Overview of Mobility Management in
Connected Mode Feature Parameter Description.

3.2 Feature Classification


3.2.1 Basic CSFB to UTRAN
This section describes the optional feature LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN. The
UtranCsfbSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch parameter specifies
whether to enable this feature.
When a UE initiates a CS service in the E-UTRAN, the MME sends an S1-AP message
containing CS Fallback Indicator to the eNodeB, instructing the eNodeB to transfer the UE as
well as the CS service to a target network. For details about signaling procedures of MOC and
MTC, see 12.1 CSFB to UTRAN.

3.2.2 Flash CSFB to UTRAN


This section describes the optional feature LOFD-001052 Flash CS Fallback to UTRAN. The
UtranFlashCsfbSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch parameter
specifies whether to enable this feature.
This feature is an enhancement to the optional feature LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to
UTRAN. When this feature is activated after enabled LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN,
the eNodeB obtains the UTRAN cell information through the RIM procedures and then sends
the EUTRAN-to-UTRAN redirection message including the obtained UTRAN cell
information to the UE. In this case, the UE can access a UTRAN cell without obtaining
UTRAN cell information. This reduces the access delay. For details about how the UTRAN
cell information is delivered to the eNodeB through the RIM procedure, see Interoperability
Between UMTS and LTE Feature Parameter Description.
This feature requires that the eNodeB can obtain UTRAN cell information through the RIM
procedures and the networks and UEs involved must comply with 3GPP Release 9 or later.
For details about the RIM procedure, see 3.7 RIM Procedure Between E-UTRAN and
UTRAN.
Other procedures are the same as those in CSFB to UTRAN. For details, see 3.2.1 Basic
CSFB to UTRAN.

3.2.3 Ultra-Flash CSFB to UTRAN


This section describes the optional feature LOFD-070202 Ultra-Flash CSFB to UTRAN. The
UtranUltraFlashCsfbSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch parameter
specifies whether to enable this feature. This feature is a Huawei-proprietary feature. To

enable this feature, the MME, MSC, and RNC must be all provided by Huawei and support
this feature.
When a UE initiates a CS service setup request in an LTE cell that does not support VoIP, this
feature enables the eNodeB to hand over the UE to the UTRAN through the SRVCC
procedure. It prepares CS resources on the UTRAN in advance and omits unnecessary
signaling processes during UTRAN access, thereby shortening the access delay for CSFB by
1s and improving user experience significantly. Compared with the standard procedure, the
ultra-flash CSFB to UTRAN procedure for Huawei omits certain signaling processes. For
details, see 12.1.5 Ultra-Flash CSFB to UTRAN.
The measurement procedure and blind handover procedure for this feature are the same as
those in CSFB to UTRAN. For details, see 3.2.1 Basic CSFB to UTRAN.
NOTE

The following table describes the parameters that must be set in the GLOBALPROCSWITCH MO to
turn on the UE compatibility switch when UEs do not support Ultra-Flash CSFB, resulting in UE
compatibility problems.

3.2.4 CS Fallback with LAI to UTRAN


This section describes the optional feature LOFD-001068 CS Fallback with LAI to UTRAN.
This feature is under license control and is not controlled by a switch.
This feature mainly applies to the following scenarios:
l

In a multi-PLMN or national roaming scenario


An LAI consists of a PLMN ID and a LAC. In the CSFB with LAI function, the PLMN
ID identifies the CS network that the UE has registered with and will fall back to after
fallback.
If the serving E-UTRAN cell has multiple neighboring UTRAN or GERAN cells with
different PLMN IDs or the serving PLMN differs from the target PLMN, the operator
can use CSFB with LAI to achieve CSFB to a PLMN of the LAI preferentially.

In a tracking area (TA) that overlaps multiple location areas (LAs)


The eNodeB selects a CSFB target cell with the same LAC as that mapped to the
network to which the UE has attached. An LAU is not required after CSFB, and
therefore the CSFB delay does not include the LAU time.

The eNodeB obtains the value of the LAI from the MME using an Initial Context Setup Req
or UE Context Mod Req message.
This feature is an enhancement to the optional feature LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to
UTRAN. With this feature, the eNodeB selects a target frequency or cell for measurement or
blind handover based on the LAI sent by the MME.
l

In a measurement procedure, the eNodeB selects only an inter-RAT frequency on which


the PLMN ID of a neighboring cell is the same as that in the LAI received. The followup measurement procedure is similar to that in CS Fallback to UTRAN. For details, see
3.4 Target Cell/Frequency Selection.
The difference is that the eNodeB sorts neighboring cells in the following order after
receiving measurement reports from a UE:

Issue 03 (2015-08-31)

If no frequency or neighboring cell can be selected based on the LAI, the processing is
the same as that when no LAI is received.
l

In a blind handover procedure, the eNodeB first selects a target cell for blind handover.
If no neighboring UTRAN cell is configured, the eNodeB preferentially selects the
UTRAN frequencies whose PLMN ID is the same as that in the LAI. The follow-up
procedure is the same as that described in 3.4 Target Cell/Frequency Selection.
If neighboring UTRAN cells are configured, the eNodeB preferentially selects the
operating UTRAN frequencies of the neighboring UTRAN cells whose PLMN ID is the
same as that in the LAI. The eNodeB then sorts the frequencies based on the blind
handover priorities of the neighboring cells and frequency priorities for connected mode.
For details, see 3.4 Target Cell/Frequency Selection.
The eNodeB selects a target cell in the following order of preference:
a.

Neighboring cell whose PLMN ID and LAC are the same as those in the LAI

b.

If no neighboring cells described in a exist, the eNodeB selects the neighboring


cells with PLMN IDs the same as that in the LAI but LACs different from that in
the LAI.

c.

If no neighboring cells described in a and b exist, the eNodeB selects the


neighboring cells with PLMN IDs the same as the serving PLMN ID of the UE.
If the InterPlmnHoSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch
parameter is selected, the eNodeB also selects cells whose PLMN IDs are in the
target PLMN list.

3.2.5 E-UTRAN to UTRAN CS Steering


This section describes the CS steering function in the optional feature LOFD-001078 EUTRAN to UTRAN CS/PS Steering. For details about the PS steering function in this feature,
see Inter-RAT Mobility Management in Connected Mode Feature Parameter Description.
This feature applies to a scenario where service steering is required in a UTRAN with
multiple UTRA frequencies. By setting CS service priorities for UTRA frequencies, the
operator can achieve CSFB from E-UTRAN only to the UTRA frequency that has a high CS
service priority.

CS Steering in CSFB
This function is an enhancement to the CS Fallback to UTRAN feature. The enhancements
are as follows:
l

During inter-RAT measurement on the UTRAN, frequencies with a high CS service


priority are preferentially measured.
The UtranFreqLayerMeasSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.FreqLayerSwtich
parameter specifies whether to enable this function.
If the option is selected, the eNodeB preferentially selects frequencies with a high CS
service priority specified by the UtranNFreq. CsPriority parameter as the measurement
targets. A larger value of this parameter indicates a higher priority. If this parameter is set
to Priority_0(Priority 0) for a frequency, the eNodeB does not select this frequency as
the measurement target. The follow-up measurement procedure is similar to that in CS
Fallback to UTRAN. For details, see 3.4 Target Cell/Frequency Selection.

specifies whether to enable this feature.
This feature is an enhancement to the optional feature LOFD-001033 CSFB to UTRAN. In
terms of the UE status at the time when the UE initiates a CS service, you can configure the
target RAT and handover policy flexibly. There are two types of UEs:

eRAN
CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description

3 CSFB to UTRAN

CS-only UE
If the MME uses the INITIAL CONTEXT SETUP REQUEST message to send the
CSFB indicator to the eNodeB, the eNodeB determines that the UE is in idle mode at the
time when the UE initiates the CS service. This UE is called a CS-only UE.

CS+PS UE
If the MME uses the UE CONTEXT MODIFICATION REQUEST message to send the
CSFB indicator to the eNodeB, the eNodeB determines that the UE is performing PS
services at the time when the UE initiates the CS service. This UE is called a CS+PS UE.

CS-only UE
If the UE is a CS-only UE, the eNodeB selects the target RAT based on the RAT priorities for
CSFB of CS-only UEs. The priorities are specified by the following parameters:
l

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.IdleCsfbHighestPri: specifies the highest-priority RAT for


CSFB of CS-only UEs.

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.IdleCsfbSecondPri: specifies the second-highest-priority RAT


for CSFB of CS-only UEs.

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.IdleCsfbLowestPri: specifies the lowest-priority RAT for


CSFB of CS-only UEs.

The eNodeB can select a neighboring cell or frequency with a lower-priority RAT only if no
neighboring cell or frequency with higher-priority RATs is configured.
If the target system with the highest priority is UTRAN, the eNodeB selects the target
frequencies based on the setting of the UtranNFreq.CsPriority parameter. For details, see
3.2.5 E-UTRAN to UTRAN CS Steering.
The eNodeB selects the handover policy for CSFB of CS-only UEs based on the setting of the
CSFallBackPolicyCfg.IdleModeCsfbHoPolicyCfg parameter. PS HO and redirection are
selected in descending order.

CS+PS UE
The eNodeB selects the target RAT based on the RAT priorities specified by the following
parameters:
l

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.InterRatHighestPri: specifies the RAT with the highest


priority.

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.InterRatSecondPri: specifies the RAT with the second highest


priority.

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.InterRatLowestPri: specifies the RAT with the lowest priority.

The eNodeB can select a neighboring cell or frequency with a lower-priority RAT only if no
neighboring cell or frequency with higher-priority RATs is configured.
If the target system with the highest priority is UTRAN, the eNodeB selects the target
frequencies based on the setting of the UtranNFreq.CsPsMixedPriority parameter. The
UtranNFreq.CsPsMixedPriority and UtranNFreq.CsPriority parameters have similar
setting principles. For details, see 3.2.5 E-UTRAN to UTRAN CS Steering.
The eNodeB selects the handover policy for CSFB based on the setting of the

3.2.7 Load-based CSFB to UTRAN


This chapter describes load-based CSFB to UTRAN. This feature is an enhancement to to the
CS Fallback to UTRAN feature. The CSFBLoadInfoSwitch option of the
ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch parameter specifies whether to enable this function.
In load-based CSFB to UTRAN, the eNodeB uses the RIM procedure in Multiple Report
mode to obtain the load information about UTRAN cells. For details about the RIM
procedure, see 3.7 RIM Procedure Between E-UTRAN and UTRAN. After receiving the
load information about UTRAN cells, the eNodeB saves the information and uses the
information to determine the target UTRAN cell for the CSFB.
In load-based CSFB to UTRAN, the measurement and blind handover procedures are the
same as those in the CS Fallback to UTRAN feature. For details, see 3.2.1 Basic CSFB to
UTRAN.
When the eNodeB selects the target UTRAN cell for the CSFB based on the load status of
UTRAN cells, the eNodeB considers UTRAN cells in descending order as follows: cells
whose load status is normal, cells whose load status is congested, and cells whose load status
is overloaded.
Load-based CSFB to UTRAN affects the target cell selection at a later phase. If measurement
is performed, the eNodeB does not select a low-priority frequency because all UTRAN cells
on the high-priority frequency are overloaded.

3.3 Triggering Events


CSFB triggering is classified into measurement triggering and blind handover triggering.

Measurement Triggering
During CSFB, the eNodeB starts UTRAN measurement after it receives a CS Fallback
Indicator. The measurement configuration is the same as that for coverage-based handover
from E-UTRAN to UTRAN. For details, see Inter-RAT Mobility Management in Connected
Mode Feature Parameter Description.
They have different thresholds and time-to-trigger. Table 3-1 lists the thresholds and time-totrigger related to event B1 for CSFB to UTRAN. Other parameters are the same as those
related to event B1 for coverage-based inter-frequency handovers.

Blind Handover Triggering


Blind handover is controlled by the BlindHoSwitch option of the
ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoModeSwitch parameter and the BlindHoSwitch option of the
CellHoParaCfg.HoModeSwitch parameter. The blind handover function takes effect only
when both options are selected.
When an E-UTRAN coverage area is larger than a UTRAN coverage area and E-UTRAN and
UTRAN base stations are co-sited, adaptive-blind-handover-based CSFB estimates the signal
strength of the neighboring UTRAN cell based on the signal strength of the serving EUTRAN cell. Adaptive-blind-handover-based CSFB is controlled by the
CsfbAdaptiveBlindHoSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch parameter.
l

If the UE is located in the center of the E-UTRAN cell, the eNodeB performs the blind
handover.

If the UE is located at the edge of the E-UTRAN cell, the eNodeB performs a
measurement-based handover.

When the blind handover function takes effect:


l

If adaptive-blind-handover-based CSFB is disabled, the eNodeB directly enters the blind


handover procedure.

If adaptive-blind-handover-based CSFB is enabled, the eNodeB delivers measurement


configurations for event A1.

If the eNodeB receives an event A1 report and determines that the UE is located in
the center of the E-UTRAN cell, it directly enters the blind handover procedure.

If the eNodeB does not receive an event A1 report and determines that the UE is
located at the edge of the E-UTRAN cell, it enters the measurement procedure.

The event A1 threshold is specified by the CSFallBackHo.BlindHoA1ThdRsrp


parameter.

The cell measurement priority of neighboring UTRAN cells can be automatically


optimized by ANR. The UTRAN_SWITCH option under the
ENodeBAlgoSwitch.NCellRankingSwitch parameter is used to enable this function.
This option is recommended to be selected if ANR is enable.

If this option is selected, the eNodeB automatically optimizes the setting of the
UtranNCell.NCellMeasPriority parameter for the cell. This parameter cannot be
modified manually. For details, see ANR Management Feature Parameter
Description.

If this option is cleared, the cell measurement priority is specified by the


UtranNCell.CellMeasPriority parameter, which needs to be configured manually.

The number of frequencies or cells that the eNodeB can randomly select for
measurement is always equal to the allowed maximum number.

The maximum number of frequencies is specified by the


CellUeMeasControlCfg.MaxUtranFddMeasFreqNum parameter.

For details about the maximum number of neighboring cells in a measurement


configuration message, see section 6.4 "RRC multiplicity and type constraint values" in
3GPP TS 36.331 V10.1.0.

Blind Handover Object Selection


During a blind handover for CSFB, the eNodeB selects the target RAT based on the RAT
priorities specified by the following parameters:
l

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.InterRatHighestPri: specifies the RAT with the highest


priority.

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.InterRatSecondPri: specifies the RAT with the second highest


priority.

CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.InterRatLowestPri: specifies the RAT with the lowest priority.

If CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.InterRatHighestPri is set to UTRAN(UTRAN), the eNodeB


performs CSFB to UTRAN.
l

When selecting target cells for blind handover, the eNodeB excludes the following
neighboring cells:

Blacklisted neighboring cells

Neighboring cells with a handover prohibition flag

Neighboring cells that have a different PLMN from the serving cell in the
neighboring cell list. If the inter-PLMN handover switch is turned on, such cells are
not excluded.

Figure 3-4 Target cell selection (configured with no neighboring UTRAN cell)

When a UE performs an E-UTRAN-to-UTRAN blind handover, neighboring UTRAN cells


must be configured. When the UE performs an E-UTRAN-to-UTRAN blind redirection,
neighboring UTRAN frequencies and connect frequency priorities other than neighboring
UTRAN cells must be configured.
During frequency selection, the eNodeB preferentially frequencies on which neighboring cells
operate. Then, the eNodeB selects frequencies based on blind handover priorities.
l

If no blind handover priority is 0, the eNodeB preferentially selects the frequency


corresponding to the cell that has a higher blind handover priority.

If all blind handover priorities are 0, the eNodeB selects the frequency based on connect
frequency priorities. It preferentially selects the frequency with the highest connect
frequency priority. If multiple frequencies are of the same priority, the eNodeB selects
the blind redirection frequency in a round-robin manner. This ensures that the UE
accesses each frequency equally. This function is specified by the
CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.UtranCsfbBlindRedirRrSw parameter.

The equal and random selection function will be enhanced later. When the UE initiates the
measurement- or blind-handover-based E-UTRAN-to-UTRAN CSFB procedure and

cells equally. It is recommended that the RsvdSwPara1_bit23 option be used.
CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.UtranCsfbBlindRedirRrSw is not recommended.

3.5 Handover Decision


In the handover decision phase, the eNodeB checks the candidate cell list. Based on the check
result, the eNodeB determines whether a handover needs to be initiated and, if so, to which
cell the UE is to be handed over.

3.5.1 Basic Handover Decision


When the handover policy is PS HO, SRVCC, or redirection (excluding flash redirection), the
eNodeB does not need to obtain system information of the peer and performs the basic
handover decision.
In the handover decision phase, the eNodeB checks the candidate cell list. Based on the check
result, the eNodeB determines whether a handover needs to be initiated and, if so, to which
cell the UE is to be handed over. If the eNodeB receives measurement reports about different
RATs, it processes the reports in an FIFO manner.
The eNodeB excludes the following cells from the neighboring cell list:
l

Blacklisted neighboring cells

Neighboring cells with a handover prohibition flag

Neighboring cells that have a different PLMN from the serving cell in the neighboring
cell list
If the inter-PLMN handover switch is turned on, such cells are not excluded.

Neighboring cells in the areas indicated by the IE Handover Restriction List in the
INITIAL CONTEXT SETUP REQUEST message sent from the MME

After the preceding exclusion, the eNodeB excludes cells from the neighboring cell list based
on SPID-based mobility management in connected mode. For details, see LOFD-00105401
Camp & Handover Based on SPID in Flexible User Steering Feature Parameter
Description.
The eNodeB then sends a handover request to the target cell at the top of the filtered candidate
cell list. If the handover request fails, the eNodeB sends the handover request to the next
target cell, as described in Table 3-2.

l

For a measurement procedure, the eNodeB waits until the UE sends the next
measurement report.

For a blind handover procedure, the eNodeB finishes the handover attempt.

3.5.2 Flash Redirection Decision


When the handover policy requires the eNodeB to obtain system information about the peer,
for example, flash redirection, handover decision based on system information is performed.
If the handover decision is based on system information, the eNodeB includes system
information of the target cell of the corresponding RAT. Therefore, the time for reading cell
system information is not required so that the UE can quickly access the target network.
Decision based on system information adheres to the following principles:
l

In blind handover scenarios:


a.

The target cell list for blind handover is selected, including other cells under the
target frequency for redirection. The UTRAN_SWITCH option of the
ENodeBAlgoSwitch.NCellRankingSwitch parameter specifies the sequence of
adding other cells.
When this option is selected, the eNodeB adds other cells in the target frequency
according to UtranNCell.NCellMeasPriority in descending order.
When this option is cleared, the eNodeB adds other cells in the target frequency
according to UtranNCell.CellMeasPriority in descending order.

b.

Basic handover decision is applied. For details, see 3.5.1 Basic Handover
Decision.

c.

Cells whose system information is not obtained are filtered out.

d.

The eNodeB excludes cells from the neighboring cell list based on SPID-based
mobility management in connected mode. For details, see LOFD-00105401 Camp
& Handover Based on SPID in Flexible User Steering Feature Parameter
Description.

In measurement scenarios:
a.

Cells in the candidate cell list generated by measurement are selected, plus cells that
are not in measurement reports but work on the target frequency for redirection.
The UTRAN_SWITCH option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.NCellRankingSwitch
parameter specifies the sequence of adding other cells.

b.

Basic handover decision is applied. For details, see 3.5.1 Basic Handover
Decision.

c.

Cells whose system information is not obtained are filtered out.

You can specify the number of UTRAN cells contained in the redirection message by setting
the InterRatHoComm.CellInfoMaxUtranCellNum parameter. Assume that this parameter is
set to N.
l

If the number of target cells after flash redirection decision is greater than N, the eNodeB
selects the first N cells.

If the number of target cells after flash redirection decision is smaller than N, the
eNodeB selects target cells after flash redirection decision.

GERAN for redirection.

If a cell to which the eNodeB has never attempted to hand over the UE is reported,
the eNodeB preferentially selects the operating frequency of the cell for redirection.

If there is not target frequency available for redirection, the eNodeB stops the

set the InterRatHoComm.UTRANCellNumForEmcRedirect parameter to specify
the maximum number of UTRAN cell system information messages that can be
transmitted during a CSFB emergency redirection procedure.
l

The eNodeB selects the target cell for redirection as it does during blind handover. For
details about how the eNodeB performs target selection during blind handover, see 3.4
Target Cell/Frequency Selection.

Blind handover is controlled by the BlindHoSwitch option of the eNodeB-level


parameter ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoModeSwitch and the BlindHoSwitch option of
the cell-level parameter CellHoParaCfg.HoModeSwitch. The blind handover
function takes effect only when both options are selected.

Adaptive-blind-handover-based CSFB is controlled by the


CsfbAdaptiveBlindHoSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch
parameter.

If PS handover for CSFB is required, select the UtranPsHoSwitch option of the


ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoModeSwitch parameter and the PS_HO option of the
CSFallBackPolicyCfg.CsfbHoPolicyCfg parameter. If either option is cleared, PS
handover for CSFB is invalid. The eNodeB selects the redirection policy. If the
redirection policy is invalid and the CSFB protection timer expires, the eNodeB enters
the blind redirection procedure.

During a CSFB based on blind PS handover, if the target cell with the highest blind
handover priority fails to prepare the handover, the eNodeB attempts another cell with
the second highest blind handover priority. The eNodeB can attempt a maximum of eight
cells. If all these cells fail in preparation, the eNodeB performs the emergent blind
redirection.

3.6.2 Ultra-Flash CSFB to UTRAN


The measurement procedure and blind handover procedure for this feature are the same as
those in CSFB to UTRAN. For details, see 3.2.1 Basic CSFB to UTRAN.
When a UE in an LTE system needs to perform voice service but the LTE system does not
support VoIP, the eNodeB decides to perform ultra-flash CSFB if LOFD-070202 Ultra-Flash
CSFB to UTRAN is enabled. Figure 3-6 shows ultra-flash CSFB to UTRAN by using the
SRVCC procedure after the eNodeB performs a measurement or blind handover decision. For
details about how to select other CSFB policies, see 3.6.1 Handover Policy Selection.

3.6.3 Redirection-based CSFB Optimization for UEs in Idle Mode


To speed up CSFB for UEs in idle mode by shortening end-to-end delays and to reduce the
CSFB failure rate due to initial context setup failures, redirection-based CSFB for UEs in idle
mode is optimized.
The optimization is performed after the eNodeB decides to perform blind handover, as shown
in Figure 3-7.
Figure 3-7 Redirection-based CSFB optimization for UEs in idle mode

The optimization switch is controlled by the IdleCsfbRedirectOptSwitch option of the


GlobalProcSwitch.ProtocolMsgOptSwitch parameter.
For details about how to decide between redirection and flash redirection, see 3.6.1 Handover
Policy Selection.
For the signaling procedure, see 12.1.6 Redirection-based CSFB Optimization for UEs in
Idle Mode.

3.6.4 CSFB Admission Optimization for UEs in Idle Mode


UEs in idle mode only have a default bearer for data service, and the allocation/retention
priority (ARP) of the default bearer is generally lower. When a UE in idle mode needs to

perform CSFB but the target cell is congested or cannot accommodate more UEs, this UE
cannot preempt resources in the target cell.
To ensure the CSFB success rate in the preceding scenario, the eNodeB can preferentially
admit CSFB UEs. This function is controlled by the
CSFallBackPolicyCfg.CsfbUserArpCfgSwitch parameter.
A larger value of the CsFallbackPolicyCfg.NormalCsfbUserArp parameter indicates a
higher probability of admission of CSFB UEs in idle mode. For details about the admission
procedure, see Admission and Congestion Control.

3.7 RIM Procedure Between E-UTRAN and UTRAN


The RIM procedure exchanges information between the E-UTRAN and UTRAN through the
core networks.
In CSFB procedures, the eNodeB obtains the load information of external UTRAN cells from
RNCs through the RIM procedure if the parameter GlobalProcSwitch.UtranLoadTransChan
is set to BASED_ON_RIM.
In flash CSFB procedures, the eNodeB obtains the system information (SI) of external cells
from RNCs through the RIM procedure. For details about related parameters, see 3.7.1 RIM
Procedure Through the Core Network and 3.7.2 RIM Procedure Through the
eCoordinator.
The RIM procedure includes the following two information exchange modes:
l

Single Report
In Single Report mode, the source sends a request, and then the target responds with a
single report.
When flash CSFB to UTRAN is triggered, the eNodeB sends a RIM message to the
RNC and then includes the obtained SI in a redirection message to send to the UE. If the
SI fails to be obtained from the RNC, the eNodeB no longer attempts the RIM request.

Multiple Report
In Multiple Report mode, the target responds with a report after receiving a request from
the source, and the target also sends a report to the source each time information about
the target changes.
When flash CSFB to UTRAN is triggered, the eNodeB sends RIM messages to all
neighboring UTRAN cells every four seconds no matter whether the eNodeB has CSFB
services.
To ensure that the SI of the target cell can be obtained successfully, the eNodeB starts a
four-second timer when it sends a RIM message.

Issue 03 (2015-08-31)

If the eNodeB receives a response to the RIM message before the timer expires, the
eNodeB saves the obtained SI.

If the eNodeB receives a response to the RIM message after the timer expires, the
eNodeB considers that an exception occurs and discards the SI.

If the eNodeB does not receive a response to the RIM message when the timer
expires, the eNodeB sends the RIM message and starts the timer again (called a
retry) two hours later. If the eNodeB still does not receive a response after 10
retries, the RIM request fails. The interval between the nth and (n-1)th retries is
twice the number of the retries n. For example, the first retry occurs two hours after
the first SI acquisition fails, the second retry occurs four hours after the first retry

CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description

3 CSFB to UTRAN

fails, and the third retry occurs six hours after the second retry fails. For each retry,
the eNodeB sends a RIM message and restarts the timer.
The eNodeB may obtain incorrect SI due to the abnormalities in the UTRAN, core
network, or transport network. To avoid this situation, the eNodeB selects a time point
randomly every day from 02:00 a.m. to 04:00 a.m and deletes all the obtained SI. Then,
the eNodeB requests the SI of UTRAN cells through the RIM procedure again.
If a neighboring UTRAN cell is faulty or deactivated, the RNC sends an END message
to notify the eNodeB of stopping the RIM procedure. In this case, the eNodeB deletes
the obtained SI and requests SI again in the next RIM procedure.
Currently, the eNodeB triggers a RIM procedure in Multiple Report mode only if MMEs
comply with 3GPP Release 9 or later.
The RIM procedure can be performed through the core network or eCoordinator.

3.7.1 RIM Procedure Through the Core Network


If ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimOnEcoSwitch is set to OFF(Off), the RIM procedure is
performed through the core network. As shown in Figure 3-8, the RIM procedure involves
the eNodeB, MME, SGSN, and RNC Among these NEs, the MME and the SGSN transfer but
do not resolve information. For details, see section 8c "Signalling procedures between RIM
SAPs" in 3GPP TS 48.018 V10.0.0.
Figure 3-8 Performing the RIM procedure through the core network

The preceding figure is described as follows:


l

The RIM procedure between EUTRAN and UTRAN is controlled by the


UTRAN_RIM_SWITCH option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimSwitch parameter.
If this option is selected, the eNodeB uses the RIM procedure in Multiple Report mode
to obtain the system information of external UTRAN cells.

Whether multiple UTRAN operators can use different mobility policies is specified by
the UtranSepOpMobilitySwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.MultiOpCtrlSwitch
parameter.

The RIM procedure for obtaining SI is controlled by the SiByRimCapCfg option of the
UtranNetworkCapCfg.NetworkCapCfg parameter.

The RIM procedure through the eCoordinator requires that the corresponding switches of all
NEs involved to be switched on.
During the RIM procedure through the eCoordinator, the eNodeB does not send RIM
messages to the EPC or process RIM messages from the EPC.
The information exchange mode for the eCoordinator-based RIM procedure is controlled by
UTRAN_RIM_SWITCH under the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimSwitch parameter.
l

If this switch is on, the eNodeB uses the RIM procedure in Multiple Report mode to
obtain the system information of external UTRAN cells.

If this switch is off, the eNodeB uses the RIM procedure in Single Report mode.

Blind handover is controlled by the BlindHoSwitch option of the eNodeB-level parameter


ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoModeSwitch and the BlindHoSwitch option of the cell-level
parameter CellHoParaCfg.HoModeSwitch. The blind handover function takes effect only
when both options are selected.
This feature has the same principle as CSFB to UTRAN, except the parameters mentioned
below in this section. For details about the principle of CSFB to UTRAN, see 3.2.1 Basic
CSFB to UTRAN.

4.2.2 Flash CSFB to GERAN


This section describes the optional feature LOFD-001053 Flash CS Fallback to GERAN. The
GeranFlashCsfbSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch parameter
specifies whether to enable this feature.
This feature is an enhancement to the optional feature LOFD-001034 CS Fallback to
GERAN. After this feature is activated, the eNodeB obtains the GERAN cell information
through the RIM procedure and then sends the LTE-to-GSM redirection message including
the obtained GERAN cell information to the UE. The
InterRatHoComm.CellInfoMaxGeranCellNum parameter specifies the maximum number
of GERAN cells that can be contained in the redirection message, which is configurable.
In this case, the UE can access a GERAN cell without obtaining GERAN cell information.
This reduces the access delay. For details about how the GERAN cell information is delivered
to the eNodeB through the RIM procedure, see Interoperability Between GSM and LTE.
This feature has the same principle as flash CSFB to UTRAN. For details, see 3.2.2 Flash
CSFB to UTRAN.

4.2.3 CS Fallback with LAI to GERAN


This section describes the optional feature LOFD-001069 CS Fallback with LAI to GERAN.
This feature is under license control and is not controlled by a switch.
This feature has the same principle as CS fallback with LAI to UTRAN. For details, see 3.2.4
CS Fallback with LAI to UTRAN.

4.2.4 CS Fallback Steering to GERAN


This chapter describes the optional feature LOFD-001089 CS Fallback Steering to GERAN.
The GeranCsfbSteeringSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch parameter
specifies whether to enable this feature.
The principles of this feature are similar to the principles of the CS Fallback Steering to
UTRAN feature. For details about the principles, see 3.2.6 CS Fallback Steering to
UTRAN.
The eNodeB selects a handover policy for CSFB of a CS-only UE based on the setting of the
CSFallBackPolicyCfg.IdleModeCsfbHoPolicyCfg parameter. The eNodeB selects PS HO,
CCO, and redirection in descending order.
The eNodeB selects a handover policy for CSFB of a CS+PS UE based on the setting of the

4.2.5 Ultra-Flash CSFB to GERAN


This section describes the optional feature LOFD-081283 Ultra-Flash CSFB to GERAN. The
GeranUltraFlashCsfbSwitch option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoAlgoSwitch parameter
specifies whether to enable this feature. This feature is a Huawei-proprietary feature. To
enable this feature, the MME, MSC, and eNodeB must be all provided by Huawei and support
this feature.
When a UE initiates a CS service setup request in a VoLTE-incapable cell, this feature enables
the eNodeB to hand over the UE to the GERAN through the SRVCC procedure. It prepares
CS resources on the GERAN in advance and omits unnecessary signaling processes during
GERAN access, thereby shortening the access delay for CSFB by 2s and improving user
experience significantly. Compared with the standard procedure, the ultra-flash CSFB to
GERAN procedure for Huawei omits certain signaling processes. For details, see 12.2.6
Ultra-Flash CSFB to GERAN.
l

The measurement procedure and blind handover procedure for this feature are the same
as those in CSFB to GERAN. For details, see 3.2.1 Basic CSFB to UTRAN.

The SRVCC handover policy for this feature is the same as that for ultra-flash CSFB to
GERAN. For details, see 3.6.2 Ultra-Flash CSFB to UTRAN.

This feature requires that external GERAN cells support ultra-flash CSFB to GERAN.
l

If all external GERAN cells support ultra-flash CSFB to GERAN, no configuration is


required.

If some external GERAN cells do not support ultra-flash CSFB to GERAN, the
following configurations are required:

Set UltraFlashCsfbInd to BOOLEAN_FALSE for external GERAN cells that do


not support ultra-flash CSFB to GERAN.

The ultra-flash CSFB to GERAN capability for external GERAN cells is specified
by the GeranExternalCell.UltraFlashCsfbInd parameter.

When the UE completes voice services on the E-UTRAN after the Ultra-Flash CSFB to
GERAN, you can enable the Fast Return to LTE feature on the GSM side so that the UE
quickly returns to the E-UTRAN. After the UE completes voice services on the GERAN, the
UE carries the LTE frequency information in a Channel Release message and selects a proper
LTE cell to camp on based on the frequency information to accelerate the return to the EUTRAN.
When IratMeasCfgTransSwitch in the GlobalProcSwitch.ProtocolMsgOptSwitch parameter
is set to ON, the eNodeB filters LTE frequencies supported by the UE based on the UE
capability to obtain a frequency set. During the SRVCC handover, the eNodeB sends a
Handover Required message containing the frequency set to the BSC of the target cell and
provides reference for the UE to accelerate the return to the E-UTRAN after the UE
completes voice services on the GERAN.
When the CellDrxPara.DrxForMeasSwitch parameter is set to ON(On), the eNodeB
delivers the DRX and gap-assisted measurement configurations if the following conditions
are met. The UE uses the DRX measurement preferentially and makes more use of DRX sleep
time continuously to accelerate the measurement and decrease the delay.
l

Issue 03 (2015-08-31)

The UE cannot perform the gap-assisted measurement. In this case, the AutoGapSwitch
option of the ENODEBALGOSWITCH.HoModeSwitch parameter is set to OFF(Off)
or the interRAT-NeedForGaps option for the GSM frequency of the UE capability is
set to TRUE(True).

The gap-assisted measurement is not configured for the UE.

The UE supports DRX.

The BlindHoSwitch option of the ENODEBALGOSWITCH.HoModeSwitch


parameter is set to OFF(Off).

After the DRX measurement is used, you need to set longer sleep time for measurements.
Therefore, the UE is easier to enter the sleep time, affecting the scheduling by decreasing the
cell throughput.
For details about how to configure measurement-specific DRX troubleshooting and related
parameters, see DRX and Signaling Control.
NOTE

The following table describes the parameters that must be set in the GLOBALPROCSWITCH MO to
turn on the UE compatibility switch when UEs do not support Ultra-Flash CSFB, resulting in UE
compatibility problems.

4.3 Triggering Events


CSFB triggering is classified into measurement triggering and blind handover triggering. For
details, see 3.3 Triggering Events.

4.4 Target Cell/Frequency Selection


Measurement Object Selection
The frequency priority used during target frequency selection is specified by the
GeranNfreqGroup.ConnFreqPriority parameter. A larger value indicates a higher priority.
During the GERAN frequency selection for measurement that is different from the UTRA
frequency selection, if the total number of the GERAN frequencies that can be delivered in
the frequency group with the highest priority and the frequencies that have been delivered
exceeds the allowed maximum number 32, all frequencies in this frequency group cannot be
delivered. The eNodeB determines whether the GERAN frequencies in the frequency group
with the second highest priority can be delivered until the number of delivered frequencies is
less than or equal to the maximum number of GERAN frequencies allowed for measurement
or all frequency groups are determined.
In GERAN, no cell measurement priority is configured. If the number of cells working on a
frequency exceeds the specification, the eNodeB randomly measures certain cells.

Blind Handover Object Selection


If CSFallBackBlindHoCfg.InterRatHighestPri is set to GERAN(GERAN), the eNodeB
performs CSFB to GERAN.
During blind handover, the target selection procedure is different, depending on whether
neighboring GERAN cells are configured.
l

If neighboring GERAN cells are configured,

4 CSFB to GERAN

The GERAN frequency group with the highest priority (specified by the
GeranNfreqGroup.ConnFreqPriority parameter) is selected for blind handover. A
larger value indicates a higher priority.

If the priorities of neighboring cells or frequencies are the same, the eNodeB
randomly selects a target cell or frequency. Due to uncertainty of random selection,
you are not advised to set the priorities to the same to ensure the blind handover
success.

If no neighboring GERAN cell is configured,

Neighboring GERAN frequencies are configured in GeranNfreqGroup MOs.

The PLMN information of the neighboring GERAN frequency is contained in the


configured GeranRanShare or GeranExternalCell MOs.

4.5 Handover Decision


The handover decision for CSFB to GERAN is the same as that for CSFB to UTRAN. For
details, see 3.5 Handover Decision.

4.6 Handover Execution


When a UE in an LTE system needs to perform voice service but the LTE system does not
support VoIP, a CSFB to an inter-RAT network is triggered.
CSFB from E-UTRAN to GERAN can be based on PS handover, CCO/NACC, redirection, or
flash redirection, as shown in Figure 4-2. This handover policy selection procedure is based
on the assumption that neighboring frequency and neighboring cell configurations are proper.
The CSFB policy is specified by different parameters, depending on whether LOFD-001089
CS Fallback Steering to GERAN is enabled.
l

Issue 03 (2015-08-31)

If this feature is enabled:

The CSFB policy for UEs in idle mode is specified by the


CSFallBackPolicyCfg.IdleModeCsfbHoPolicyCfg parameter.

The CSFB policy for UEs in connected mode is specified by the


CSFallBackPolicyCfg.CsfbHoPolicyCfg parameter.

If this feature is disabled, the CSFB policy is specified by the


CSFallBackPolicyCfg.CsfbHoPolicyCfg parameter, regardless of whether UEs are in
idle or connected mode.

The eNodeB preferentially selects a system that the UE has not measured. For
example, if the UE has measured the UTRAN, the eNodeB preferentially selects the
GERAN for redirection.

If there is not target frequency available for redirection, the eNodeB stops the
procedure.

Blind handover is controlled by the BlindHoSwitch option of the


ENodeBAlgoSwitch.HoModeSwitch parameter and the BlindHoSwitch option of the
CELLHOPARACFG.HoModeSwitch parameter. The CSFB blind handover is triggered
only when both options are selected.

Adaptive-blind-handover-based CSFB is controlled by the

The PS handover supporting capability is specified by GeranPsHoSwitch.

The CCO supporting capability is specified by GeranCcoSwitch.

The NACC supporting capability is specified by GeranNaccSwitch.


When CSFB to GERAN is based on CCO/NACC, the eNodeB obtains SI of
external cells from RNCs through the RIM procedure. For details about the RIM
procedure, see 4.7 RIM Procedure Between E-UTRAN and GERAN.

During a CSFB based on blind PS handover, if the target cell with the highest blind
handover priority fails to prepare the handover, the eNodeB attempts another cell with
the second highest blind handover priority. The eNodeB can attempt a maximum of eight
cells. If all these cells fail in preparation, the eNodeB performs the emergent blind
redirection.

4.7 RIM Procedure Between E-UTRAN and GERAN


The principles of the RIM procedure between E-UTRAN and GERAN are the same as those
for UTRAN described in 3.7 RIM Procedure Between E-UTRAN and UTRAN.
The RIM procedure between E-UTRAN and GERAN is enabled by default because there is
no switch for selecting a load information transfer channel.
If ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimOnEcoSwitch is set to OFF(Off), the RIM procedure is
performed through the core network. If ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimOnEcoSwitch is set to
ON(On), the RIM procedure is performed through the eCoordinator. The two RIM
procedures select information exchange modes in the same way.
Figure 4-3 shows the procedure of information exchange mode selection for the RIM
procedure.
The RIM procedure between EUTRAN and GERAN is controlled by the
GERAN_RIM_SWITCH option of the ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimSwitch parameter.
If this option is selected, the eNodeB uses the RIM procedure in Multiple Report mode to
obtain the system information of external GERAN cells.

Network Impact

6.1 LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN


System Capacity
In essence, CSFB provides CS service access for E-UTRAN UEs. Considering that the
number of UEs that request CS services within an area is relatively stable and is not affected
by EPS deployment, CSFB has no impact on the total number of UEs that request CS services
within a network.
Load-based CSFB to UTRAN prevents PS handover preparation failure caused by UTRAN
cell congestion, because the eNodeB selects a target cell based on the UTRAN cell load
status. This increases system capacity.
CSFB mechanisms affect signaling overhead as follows:
l

If redirection is used as the CSFB mechanism, no extra signaling message is required for
the UTRAN because each CSFB procedure is equivalent to the initiation of a new CS
service. The EPS does not need to interact with the target network, and the
corresponding signaling overhead is negligible.

If PS handover is used as the CSFB mechanism, extra signaling messages are required
from each NE for the request, preparation, and execution of each handover. However,
from the perspective of traffic statistics, the number of UEs that initiate CS services per
second per cell during peak hours is far below cell capacity. Therefore, signaling
overhead caused by PS handovers is low.

Network Performance
Load-based CSFB to UTRAN prevents PS handover preparation failure caused by UTRAN
cell congestion, because the eNodeB selects a target cell based on the UTRAN cell load

CSFB affects the access success rate as follows: If redirection is used as the CSFB
mechanism, each CSFB procedure is equivalent to the initiation of a new CS service.
Therefore, the access success rate for CSFB UEs is theoretically the same as that for
normal CS UEs in the UTRAN.

eRAN
CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description

6 Network Impact

If PS handover is used as the CSFB mechanism, the access success rate for CSFB UEs
depends on the success rate of handovers to the target RAT. Handover-triggered CS
service access has a higher requirement for signal quality compared with normal CS
service access. Therefore, the access success rate for CSFB UEs is a little lower than that
for normal CS UEs in the UTRAN.

6.2 LOFD-001052 Flash CS Fallback to UTRAN


System Capacity
In essence, CSFB provides CS service access for E-UTRAN UEs. Considering that the
number of UEs that request CS services within an area is relatively stable and is not affected
by EPS deployment, CSFB has no impact on the total number of UEs that request CS services
within a network.
Extra signaling messages are required only during eNodeB deployment.
l

Afterward, signaling overhead is negligible because of infrequent system information


updates.

Network Performance
Flash CSFB to UTRAN decreases the CSFB delay by up to 1.28s because UEs obtain
information about the target UTRAN cell for redirection before RRC connections to the LTE
network are released.
Flash CSFB affects the access success rate as follows:
l

Each flash CSFB procedure is equivalent to the initiation of a new CS service. Therefore,
the access success rate for CSFB UEs is theoretically the same as that for normal CS
UEs in the UTRAN.

The RRC connection setup success rate may decrease slightly for the UTRAN. The
uplink interference information contained in SIB7 in the UTRAN updates frequently.
The RNC cannot update the uplink interference information in the system information
sent to the LTE network based on SIB7 in the UTRAN. Therefore, the uplink
interference information contained in SIB7 in the LTE network is a default value (105
dBm). If the actual uplink interference in the UTRAN is greater than 105 dBm, the
transmit power on UEs' physical random access channel (PRACH) increases and the
RRC connection setup success rate may decrease.

6.3 LOFD-070202 Ultra-Flash CSFB to UTRAN


System Capacity
No impact.

Network Performance
Compared with standard CSFB, this feature reduces the delay of CSFB to UTRAN by 1

6.4 LOFD-001068 CS Fallback with LAI to UTRAN


System Capacity
No impact.

Network Performance
CSFB with LAI ensures that a UE can fall back to the CS network to which the UE has
attached. This prevents CSFB failure or long delay caused by incorrect target RAT selection
and increases the CSFB success rate.

6.5 LOFD-001088 CS Fallback Steering to UTRAN


System Capacity
No impact.

Network Performance
Using this feature, an operator that owns inter-RAT networks can specify the target RAT and
frequency for CSFB based on the network plan and network load balancing requirements and
thereby improve network operating efficiency.
If the frequency with the highest priority is inappropriately configured, for example, if the
highest-priority frequency has coverage holes, a UE may fail to measure this frequency and
therefore the CSFB delay increases.
This feature may conflict with the service-based directed retry decision (DRD) algorithm used
for UTRAN, thereby affecting user experience. For example, if a CS service is initiated for a
UE that is performing PS services, the eNodeB may select a High Speed Packet Access
(HSPA) frequency used in UTRAN for CSFB based on configured policies. However, if the
UE requests CS bearer establishment first after the fallback, the UTRAN may transfer the UE
to an R99 frequency.

6.6 LOFD-001078 E-UTRAN to UTRAN CS/PS Steering


System Capacity
No impact.

Network Performance
E-UTRAN to UTRAN CS/PS Steering enables an eNodeB to include only UTRAN
frequencies with a high CS service priority in measurement configurations. This prevents
redundant measurements, reduces the measurement time, and decreases end-to-end CSFB
delay.

If the CS service priorities of UTRAN frequencies configured on the eNodeB are consistent
with those configured at the UTRAN side, E-UTRAN to UTRAN CS/PS Steering prevents
further intra-UTRAN handovers for service steering.

System Capacity
In essence, CSFB provides CS service access for E-UTRAN UEs. Considering that the
number of UEs that request CS services within an area is relatively stable and is not affected

CSFB mechanisms affect signaling overhead as follows: If redirection or CCO without


NACC is used as the CSFB mechanism, no extra signaling message is required for the
GERAN because each CSFB procedure is equivalent to the initiation of a new CS
service. The EPS does not need to interact with the target network. Therefore, signaling
overhead is negligible.

If CCO with NACC is used as the CSFB mechanism, extra signaling messages are

For policies on whether to use PS handover or PS redirection for CSFB, see Inter-RAT
Mobility Management in Connected Mode. If UTRAN and E-UTRAN cells cover the same
area, or the UTRAN cell provides better coverage than the E-UTRAN cell, use CSFB based
on blind handover to decrease the CSFB delay.

7.1.2 Required Information


1.

Collect the operating frequencies, coverage areas, and configurations of the E-UTRAN
and UTRAN cells. Information about coverage areas includes engineering parameters of
sites (such as latitude and longitude), TX power of cell reference signals (RSs), and
neighbor relationship configurations.

2.

Collect the versions and configurations of the NEs in the E-UTRAN, UTRAN, and core
networks, and ensure that they all support CSFB. Table 7-1 describes the requirements
of CSFB to UTRAN for the core networks.

3.

Collect the following information about the UEs that support UMTS and LTE on the live
network:

7.1.5.1 Data Preparation
This section describes the data that you need to collect for setting parameters. Required data is
data that you must collect for all scenarios. Collect scenario-specific data when necessary for
a specific feature deployment scenario.
There are three types of data sources:
l

Network plan (negotiation not required): parameter values planned and set by the
operator

Network plan (negotiation required): parameter values planned by the operator and
negotiated with the EPC or peer transmission equipment

User-defined: parameter values set by users

Required Data
Before configuring CSFB to UTRAN, collect the data related to neighbor relationships with
UTRAN cells. This section provides only the information about managed objects (MOs)
related to neighboring UTRAN cells. For more information about how to collect data for the
parameters in these MOs, see Inter-RAT Mobility Management in Connected Mode Feature
Parameter Description. Collect data for the parameters in the following MOs:
1.

UtranNFreq: used to configure neighboring UTRA frequencies.

2.

UtranExternalCell: used to configure external UTRAN cells. The


UtranExternalCell.Rac parameter must be set.

3.

UtranExternalCellPlmn: used to configure additional PLMN IDs for each shared


external UTRAN cell. This MO is required only if the NodeB that provides the external
UTRAN cell works in RAN sharing with common carriers mode and multiple operators
share the external UTRAN cell.

4.

The following table describes the parameters that must be set in the UtranNCell MO to
configure the neighboring relationship with a UTRAN cell. If a neighboring UTRAN
cell supports blind handovers according to the network plan, the blind-handover priority
of the cell must be specified by the UtranNCell.BlindHoPriority parameter.

The default value is 0, indicating that no


system information of any neighboring
UTRAN cells is sent to UEs for
emergency redirections. Operators can set
this parameter to 0 through 16 based on
the network plan. After the CSFB
protection timer expires, the eNodeB
performs an emergency redirection. If the
signal quality of the serving cell is poor
and this parameter is set to a large value,
the eNodeB may fail to send the system
information of neighboring UTRAN cells

NOTE
If none of the three options is selected and
measurement-based mobility is enabled, the eNodeB
does not perform CSFB for a UE until the CSFB

a blind redirection for the UE. If blind handover is
enabled, the eNodeB directly performs a blind
redirection for the UE.
CCO_HO applies only to CSFB to GERAN.

Enter the values of the parameters listed in Table 7-3 in a summary data file, which also
contains other data for the new eNodeBs to be deployed.
Then, import the summary data file into the Configuration Management Express (CME) for
batch configuration. For detailed instructions, see section "Creating eNodeBs in Batches" in
the initial configuration guide for the eNodeB.
The summary data file may be a scenario-specific file provided by the CME or a customized
file, depending on the following conditions:

Some MOs in Table 7-3 are not contained in a scenario-specific summary data file. In
this situation, customize a summary data file to include the MOs before you can set the
parameters.

When configuring neighboring cells, you are advised to use the radio data planning file. For
details about how to fill in and export the radio data planning file, see section "Creating
eNodeBs in Batches" in the initial configuration guide for the eNodeB.

Two UTRAN cells A and B report MRs and are under overload control and in the normal
state, respectively. The RSCP of cell A is larger than that of cell B.
Enable a UE to perform a PS-handover-based CSFB when both cell A and cell B provides
services correctly.
1.

If the RSCP of cell B meets the handover requirements, the eNodeB transfers the UE to
cell B.

2.

If cell B is blocked and the RSCP of cell A meets the handover requirements, the
eNodeB transfers the UE to cell A and the UE can access the network through
preemption or queuing.

Figure 7-2 and Figure 7-3 show sample procedures for CSFB to UTRAN for a mobileoriginated call and CSFB to UTRAN for a mobile-terminated call, respectively. In the
examples, the UE was in idle mode before the call and is forced to fall back to the UTRAN
using a redirection.
NOTE

The same UE is shown in the left and right sides of the figure. This applies to all figures in the rest of
this document. The messages on the UTRAN side are only for reference.

Figure 7-3 Redirection-based CSFB to UTRAN for a mobile-terminated call

If the UE capability is not included in the Initial Context Setup Request (Initial Context Setup
Req in the figures) message, the eNodeB initiates a UE capability transfer procedure
immediately after receiving this message from the MME. If the UE capability is included in
the Initial Context Setup Request message, the eNodeB initiates a UE capability transfer
procedure after sending an Initial Context Setup Response (Initial Context Setup Rsp in the
figures) message to the MME.
If measurement-based redirection is used for CSFB to UTRAN, the eNodeB delivers the B1related measurement configuration.
If blind redirection is used for CSFB to UTRAN, the eNodeB does not deliver the B1-related
measurement configuration but sends an RRC Connection Release (RRC Conn Rel in the
figures) message to the UE. As shown in the red and green boxes in Figure 7-4, in the RRC
Connection Release message, the cause value is "other" and the target RAT is UTRAN. For an

7.1.8 Performance Monitoring


CSFB is an end end-to to-end service. The performance counters on the LTE side can only
indicate the success rate of the CSFB procedure on the LTE side, and. they cannot indicate the
success rate of the CSFB procedure on the target side. Therefore, the performance counters on
the LTE side cannot directly show user experience of the CSFB procedure. It is recommended
that you perform drive tests and use the performance counters on the UE side to indicate the
actual user experience of the CSFB procedure.
Related counters are listed in Table 7-6.

Measurement-based Handovers for CSFB


An appropriate event B1 threshold for CSFB ensures that inter-RAT handovers are triggered
in a timely fashion. A high threshold results in a low probability of triggering event B1,
thereby affecting user experience. A low threshold results in a high probability of triggering
event B1, but causes a high probability of incorrect handover decisions and a low handover
success rate. Tune this parameter based on site conditions.
Event B1 for CSFB has a time-to-trigger parameter. This parameter lowers the probability of
incorrect handover decisions and raises the handover success rate. However, if the value of
this parameter is too large, CSFB delay is extended, affecting user experience. Tune this
parameter based on site conditions.
Appropriate settings of the threshold and time-to-trigger for event B1 raise the handover
success rate and lower the call drop rate. The related parameters are as follows:
Related parameters are in the CSFallBackHo MO.

7.2 RIM Procedure from E-UTRAN to UTRAN


7.2.1 When to Use RIM Procedure from E-UTRAN to UTRAN
It is recommended that the RIM procedure be performed through the Huawei-proprietary
eCoordinator if the following two conditions are met: 1. Both the eNodeB and the RNC/BSC
are provided by Huawei and are connected to the same eCoordinator. 2. The core network that
the eNodeB and the RNC/BSC are connected to does not support the RIM procedure or is not
enabled with the RIM procedure. To perform the RIM procedure through the eCoordinator, set
ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimOnEcoSwitch to ON(On).
In other conditions, it is recommended that the RIM procedure be performed through the core
network. In this case, set ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimOnEcoSwitch to OFF(Off).
If load-based CSFB to UTRAN is used, you need to obtain load information about UTRAN
cells through the RIM procedures. If flash CSFB to UTRAN is used, you need to obtain
system information about UTRAN cells through the RIM procedures.

7.2.2 Required Information


Check whether the RNC, MME, and SGSN support the RIM procedure, and whether an
eCoordinator has been deployed.

7.2.3 Requirements
Operating Environment
If the RIM procedure is performed through the core network, the core-network equipment
must support this feature:
l

For the Huawei EPC, the EPC version for eRAN3.0 is required. If the EPC version is not
for eRAN3.0, messages may not be parsed.

For a third party's EPC, the EPC must support CSFB complying with 3GPP Release 9.
Check that software versions for the EPC are correct.

If the RIM procedure is performed through the eCoordinator, the RNC/BSC, eNodeB, and
eCoordinator must all be provided by Huawei and with the switch for supporting the RIM
procedure through eCoordinator turned on.
To facilitate connection setup for RIM message exchange, you must enable RIM in the
UTRAN before you enable it in the E-UTRAN.

License
The operator has purchased and activated the license for the feature listed in Table 7-11.

Signaling Tracing Result Observation


If the RIM procedure is performed through the core network, trace signaling messages as
follows:
Step 1 Start an S1 interface tracing task on the eNodeB LMT.
Check whether the eNB DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER message containing the
RAN-INFORMATION-REQUEST IE is sent over the S1 interface. If the message is sent, you
can infer that the eNodeB has sent the RIM request successfully.
Step 2 Start an Iu interface tracing task on the RNC LMT.
If after receiving the DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER message containing the RANINFORMATION-REQUEST IE, the RNC sends the DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER
message containing the RAN-INFORMAION IE to the SGSN, you can infer that the RNC
can response to the RIM request normally.
Step 3 Change the state of the UTRAN cell.
If the RNC sends the DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER message containing the RANINFORMATION IE over the Iu interface, you can infer that the RNC can notify the eNodeB
with the cell state change through the RIM procedure.
----End
If the RIM procedure is performed through the eCoordinator, trace signaling messages as
follows:
Step 1 Start an Se interface tracing task on the eNodeB LMT.
Check whether the ENB DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER message containing the
RAN-INFORMAION-REQUEST IE is sent over the Se interface. If the message is sent, you
can infer that the eNodeB has sent the RIM request successfully.
Step 2 Start an Sr interface tracing task on the RNC LMT.
If after receiving the ECO DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER message containing the
RAN-INFORMAION-REQUEST IE, the RNC sends the RNC DIRECT INFORMATION
TRANSFER message containing the RAN-INFORMAION IE to the eCoordinator, you can
infer that the RNC can response to the RIM request normally.
Step 3 Change the state of the UTRAN cell.
If the RNC sends the RNC DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER message containing the
RAN-INFORMATION IE over the Sr interface, you can infer that the RNC can notify the
eNodeB with the cell state change through the RIM procedure.

When LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN has been enabled, use LOFD-001052 Flash CS
Fallback to UTRAN if all the following conditions are met: The E-UTRAN and UTRAN
support the RIM with SIB procedure. 3GPP Release 9 UEs are used on the live network. The
core networks support the RIM procedure. The eCo has been deployed. For policies on
whether to use PS handover or PS redirection for CSFB, see Inter-RAT Mobility Management
in Connected Mode. If UTRAN and E-UTRAN cells cover the same area, or the UTRAN cell
provides better coverage than the E-UTRAN cell, use CSFB based on blind handover to
decrease the CSFB delay.

7.3.2 Required Information


1.

Collect information about whether LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN has been


activated.

2.

Collect the operating frequencies, coverage areas, and configurations of the E-UTRAN
and UTRAN cells. Information about coverage areas includes engineering parameters of
sites (such as latitude and longitude), TX power of cell reference signals (RSs), and
neighbor relationship configurations.

3.

Collect the versions and configurations of the NEs in the E-UTRAN, UTRAN, and core
networks, and ensure that they all support CSFB and the RIM procedure. Table 7-15
describes the requirements of flash CSFB to UTRAN for the core networks. For details
about the deployment guide on the UTRAN, see Interoperability Between UMTS and
LTE Feature Parameter Description.

4.

Collect the following information about the UEs that support UMTS and LTE on the live
network:

Supported frequency bands

Whether the UEs support redirection from E-UTRAN to UTRAN

Whether the UEs support PS handover from E-UTRAN to UTRAN

Whether the UEs support UTRAN measurements

Whether the UEs comply with 3GPP Release 9 specifications

This information is used to configure neighboring UTRAN cells and to determine


whether to perform CSFB based on handover or redirection. For details, see Inter-RAT

UTRAN_RIM_SWITCH(UTRAN
RIM Switch) under this parameter
specifies whether to enable or disable
the RIM procedure that requests eventdriven multiple reports from UTRAN
cells.
If this switch is turned on, the eNodeB
can send RAN-INFORMATIONREQUEST/Multiple Report protocol
data units (PDUs) to UTRAN cells to
request event-driven multiple reports.
If this switch is turned off, the eNodeB
cannot send RAN-INFORMATIONREQUEST/Multiple Report PDUs to
UTRAN cells.
If this switch is turned off and
UtranFlashCsfbSwitch(UtranFlashCsfbSwitch) under

7.3.6 Activation Observation


Signaling Observation
Enable a UE to camp on an E-UTRAN cell and make a voice call. If the call continues and the
RRC Connection Release message traced on the Uu interface carries the information about
neighboring UTRAN cells, flash CSFB to UTRAN has been activated.
The signaling procedure for flash CSFB to UTRAN is similar to that for redirection-based
CSFB to UTRAN described in 7.1.6 Activation Observation. The difference is that the RRC
Connection Release message carries the information about neighboring UTRAN cells.

MML Command Observation


Check the status of the RIM procedure towards neighboring UTRAN cells by running the
DSP UTRANRIMINFO command. If the ID of a neighboring UTRAN cell is displayed in
the command output, the eNodeB has obtained the system information of this neighboring
UTRAN cell.

Counter Observation

7.4 LOFD-070202 Ultra-Flash CSFB to UTRAN


7.4.1 When to Use Ultra-Flash CSFB
When LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN has been enabled, this feature is recommended
in scenarios where the eNodeB, RNC, MME, and MSC are provided by Huawei, and a
proportion of of UEs in the live network support SRVCC from E-UTRAN to UTRAN.

7.4.2 Required Information


Before deploying this feature, collect the following information:
l

LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN has been activated.

The eNodeB, RNC, MME, and MSC in the network are provided by Huawei and they all
support this feature.

A proportion of UEs in the live network support SRVCC from E-UTRAN to UTRAN.

7.4.3 Requirements
Operating Environment
This feature is a Huawei-proprietary feature and requires that the UTRAN, eNodeB, RNC,
MME, and MSC are provided by Huawei and support this feature. This feature is used with
MME11.0 and MSC11.0.

l

Network plan (negotiation not required): parameter values planned and set by the
operator

Network plan (negotiation required): parameter values planned by the operator and
negotiated with the EPC or peer transmission equipment

User-defined: parameter values set by users

Required Data
The required data is the same as that for LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN. For details,
see 7.1.5.1 Data Preparation.

CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description

7 Engineering Guidelines

1.

Configure two neighboring UTRAN cells with different LAIs for an E-UTRAN cell, and
enable the MME to include only one of the two LAIs in the instructions that will be
delivered to the eNodeB.

2.

Ensure that the signal strengths of the two UTRAN cells both reach the threshold for
event B1. You can query the threshold by running the LST
INTERRATHOUTRANGROUP command.

3.

Enable a UE to camp on an E-UTRAN cell and originate a voice call so that the UE falls
back to the UTRAN cell with the specified LAI and completes the call.

4.

Enable the UE to camp on the E-UTRAN cell and receive a voice call so that the UE
falls back to the UTRAN cell with the specified LAI and completes the call.
You can observe the signaling procedure for CSFB with LAI to UTRAN, which is
similar to that for CSFB to UTRAN described in 7.1.6 Activation Observation. The
difference is that the Initial Context Setup Request or UE Context Mod Request message
carries the LAI that the MME delivers to the eNodeB, as shown in the following figure:
Figure 7-12 LAI signaling tracing

7.5.7 Deactivation
LOFD-001068 CS Fallback with LAI to UTRAN is automatically deactivated when its

Use LOFD-001088 CS Fallback Steering to UTRAN to improve the network efficiency when
both of the following conditions are met: LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN has been
activated. An operator owns multiple UTRAN frequencies or the operator has different
handover policies for CS-only services and combined CS+PS services. If the operator owns
both UTRAN and GERAN, you can also activate LOFD-001089 CS Fallback Steering to
GERAN to improve the network efficiency.

7.6.2 Required Information


1.

Collect information about whether LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN has been


activated.

2.

Collect the following information about the UEs that support UMTS and LTE on the live
network:

Supported frequency bands

Whether the UEs support redirection from E-UTRAN to UTRAN

Whether the UEs support PS handover from E-UTRAN to UTRAN

Whether the UEs support UTRAN measurements

This information is used to configure neighboring UTRAN cells and to determine


whether to perform CSFB based on handover or redirection. For details, see Inter-RAT
Mobility Management in Connected Mode.
3.

Collect information about the frequencies and frequency policies of the UTRAN. The
frequency policies for UTRAN and E-UTRAN must be the same. For example, if F1 is
the preferred frequency for voice services on UTRAN, the same configuration is
recommended for E-UTRAN.

4.

If LOFD-001089 CS Fallback Steering to GERAN is also to be activated, consider the


GERAN frequencies when making frequency policies.

7.6.3 Requirements

7.6.6 Activation Observation


The signaling procedure is the same as that for CSFB to UTRAN. After CS Fallback Steering
to UTRAN is used, check whether it works as expected.
The activation observation procedure for CSFB steering to UTRAN is as follows:
1.

Check that the UE supports redirection-based CSFB and handover-based CSFB.

2.

Set CSFB policies for RRC_IDLE UEs and RRC_CONNECTED UEs to redirection and
handover, respectively.

3.

Enable the UE to initiate a voice call in idle mode and in connected mode.

4.

Observe the counters L.CSFB.E2W, L.RRCRedirection.E2W.CSFB, and


L.IRATHO.E2W.CSFB.ExecAttOut. If the values of the counters increase by 2, 1, and 1,
respectively, CSFB steering to UTRAN has been activated.

If LOFD-001089 CS Fallback Steering to GERAN has also been activated, the activation
observation procedure is as follows:
1.

Check that the UE supports CSFB to GERAN and CSFB to UTRAN.

2.

Set GERAN as the highest-priority RAT for CSFB triggered for RRC_IDLE UEs and
UTRAN as the highest-priority RAT for CSFB triggered for RRC_CONNECTED UEs.

3.

Enable the UE to initiate a voice call in idle mode and in connected mode.

4.

Observe the counters L.CSFB.E2W and L.CSFB.E2G. If both the values increase by 1,
both CSFB steering to UTRAN and CSFB steering to GERAN have been activated.

7.6.7 Deactivation
Using the CME to Perform Batch Configuration
Batch reconfiguration using the CME is the recommended method to deactivate a feature on
eNodeBs. This method reconfigures all data, except neighbor relationships, for multiple
eNodeBs in a single procedure. The procedure for feature deactivation is similar to that for

Use LOFD-001034 CS Fallback to GERAN in the initial phase of LTE network deployment
when both of the following conditions are met:
l

The operator owns a mature GERAN network.

The LTE network does not provide VoIP services, or UEs in the LTE network do not
support VoIP services.

For policies on whether to use PS handover or PS redirection for CSFB, see Inter-RAT
Mobility Management in Connected Mode. If GERAN and E-UTRAN cells cover the same
area, or the GERAN cell provides better coverage than the E-UTRAN cell, use CSFB based
on blind handover to decrease the CSFB delay.

7.8.2 Required Information


l

Collect the operating frequencies, coverage areas, and configurations of the E-UTRAN
and GERAN cells. Information about coverage areas includes engineering parameters of
sites (such as latitude and longitude), TX power of cell reference signals (RSs), and
neighbor relationship configurations.

Collect the versions and configurations of the NEs in the E-UTRAN, GERAN, and core
networks, and ensure that they all support CSFB. Table 7-33 describes the requirements
of CSFB to GERAN for the core networks.

7.8.5 Data Preparation and Feature Activation


7.8.5.1 Data Preparation
This section describes the data that you need to collect for setting parameters. Required data is
data that you must collect for all scenarios. Collect scenario-specific data when necessary for
a specific feature deployment scenario.
There are three types of data sources:
l

Network plan (negotiation not required): parameter values planned and set by the
operator

Network plan (negotiation required): parameter values planned by the operator and
negotiated with the EPC or peer transmission equipment

User-defined: parameter values set by users

Required Data
Before configuring CSFB to GERAN, collect the data related to neighbor relationships with
GERAN cells. This section provides only the information about MOs related to neighboring
GERAN cells. For more information about how to collect data for the parameters in these
MOs, see Inter-RAT Mobility Management in Connected Mode Feature Parameter
Description.
1.

GeranNfreqGroup: used to configure a group of neighboring GERAN frequencies.

2.

GeranNfreqGroupArfcn: used to configure a neighboring BCCH frequency in a


GERAN carrier frequency group.

3.

GeranExternalCell: used to configure external GERAN cells. The


GeranExternalCell.Rac parameter must be set.

4.

GeranExternalCellPlmn: used to configure additional PLMN IDs for each shared


external GERAN cell. This MO is required only if the BTS that provides the external
GERAN cell works in RAN sharing with common carriers mode and multiple operators
share the external GERAN cell.

batch configuration. For detailed instructions, see section "Creating eNodeBs in Batches" in
the initial configuration guide for the eNodeB.
The summary data file may be a scenario-specific file provided by the CME or a customized
file, depending on the following conditions:
l

The managed objects (MOs) in Table 7-35 are contained in a scenario-specific summary
data file. In this situation, set the parameters in the MOs, and then verify and save the
file.

Some MOs in Table 7-35 are not contained in a scenario-specific summary data file. In
this situation, customize a summary data file to include the MOs before you can set the
parameters.

When configuring neighboring cells, you are advised to use the radio data planning file. For
details about how to fill in and export the radio data planning file, see section "Creating

NOTE

In the following figures, the UE on the left side and the UE on the right side are the same UE. The
signaling on the GERAN side is for reference only. The procedure for mobile-terminated calls is similar
to the procedure for mobile-originated calls except that the procedure for mobile-terminated calls
includes paging.

Figure 7-16 Redirection-based CSFB to GERAN for a mobile-originated call

The signaling procedure for PS handover-based CSFB to GERAN is different from the
signaling procedure for redirection-based CSFB to GERAN. The difference is as follows: In
PS handover-based CSFB to GERAN, the eNodeB performs a PS handover procedure rather
than an RRC connection release procedure after the UE reports measurement results to the
eNodeB. For details about the signaling procedure of PS handover-based CSFB to GERAN,
see 7.1.6 Activation Observation. In the signaling procedure of PS handover-based CSFB to
GERAN, the CSFB indication flag is true and the CSFB target is GERAN in the
MobilityFromEUTRACommand message.
In the signaling procedure for PS handover-based CSFB to GERAN, the cs-FallbackIndicator

7.8.8 Performance Monitoring


CSFB is an end end-to to-end service. The performance counters on the LTE side can only
indicate the success rate of the CSFB procedure on the LTE side, and. they cannot indicate the
success rate of the CSFB procedure on the target side. Therefore, the performance counters on
the LTE side cannot directly show user experience of the CSFB procedure. It is recommended
that you perform drive tests and use the performance counters on the UE side to indicate the
actual user experience of the CSFB procedure.

is required, set this parameter, which is used by
UEs as one of the conditions for triggering event
B1. When a UE detects that the signal quality in at
least one GERAN cell meets the entering
condition, it does not immediately send a
measurement report to the eNodeB. Instead, the
UE sends a measurement report only when the
signal quality has been meeting the entering
condition throughout a period defined by this
parameter. This parameter helps decrease the
number of occasionally triggered event reports,
the average number of handovers, and the number
of incorrect handovers, preventing unnecessary
handovers.

eRAN
CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description

7 Engineering Guidelines

7.9.1 When to Use RIM Procedure Between E-UTRAN and


GERAN
It is recommended that the RIM procedure be performed through the Huawei-proprietary
eCoordinator if the following two conditions are met: 1. Both the eNodeB and the RNC/BSC
are provided by Huawei and are connected to the same eCoordinator. 2. The core network that
the eNodeB and the RNC/BSC are connected to does not support the RIM procedure or is not
enabled with the RIM procedure. To perform the RIM procedure through the eCoordinator, set
ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimOnEcoSwitch to ON(On).
In other conditions, it is recommended that the RIM procedure be performed through the core
network. In this case, set ENodeBAlgoSwitch.RimOnEcoSwitch to OFF(Off).

7.9.2 Required Information


Check whether the BSC, MME, and SGSN support the RIM procedure, and whether an
eCoordinator has been deployed.

7.9.3 Requirements
Operating Environment
If the RIM procedure is performed through the core network, the core-network equipment
must support this feature:
l

For the Huawei EPC, the EPC version for eRAN3.0 is required. If the EPC version is not
for eRAN3.0, messages may not be parsed.

For a third party's EPC, the EPC must support CSFB complying with 3GPP Release 8.
Check that software versions for the EPC are correct.

The BSC, MME, and SGSN must support the RIM procedures. If one of the NEs does
not support, the RIM procedures fail.
NOTE

In a multioperator core network (MOCN) scenario, the eNodeB preferentially selects the link for
the primary operator when sending an RIM request. If the RIM procedure fails, the eNodeB no
longer attempts to send the RIM request on other links.

If the RIM procedure is performed through the eCoordinator, the RNC/BSC, eNodeB, and
eCoordinator must all be provided by Huawei and with the switch for supporting the RIM
procedure through eCoordinator turned on.

License
The operator has purchased and activated the license for the feature listed in Table 7-45.

This section describes the data that you need to collect for setting parameters. Required data is
data that you must collect for all scenarios. Collect scenario-specific data when necessary for
a specific feature deployment scenario.
There are three types of data sources:
l

Network plan (negotiation not required): parameter values planned and set by the
operator

Network plan (negotiation required): parameter values planned by the operator and
negotiated with the EPC or peer transmission equipment

User-defined: parameter values set by users

Required Data
The required data is the same as that for LOFD-001033 CS Fallback to UTRAN. For details,
see 7.1.5.1 Data Preparation.
GeranExternalCell: used to configure external GERAN cells. The GeranExternalCell.Rac
parameter must be set.

7.9.7 Deactivation
Using the CME to Perform Batch Configuration
Batch reconfiguration using the CME is the recommended method to deactivate a feature on
eNodeBs. This method reconfigures all data, except neighbor relationships, for multiple
eNodeBs in a single procedure. The procedure for feature deactivation is similar to that for

sites (such as latitude and longitude), TX power of cell reference signals (RSs), and
neighbor relationship configurations.

Collect the versions and configurations of the NEs in the E-UTRAN, GERAN, and core
networks, and ensure that they all support CSFB and the RIM procedure. Table 7-49
describes the requirements of flash CSFB to GERAN for the core networks. For details
about processing in Huawei GSM equipment, see Interoperability Between GSM and
LTE in GBSS Feature Documentation.

Collect the following information about the UEs that support GSM and LTE on the live
network:

Supported frequency bands

Whether the UEs support redirection from E-UTRAN to GERAN

Whether the UEs support PS handover from E-UTRAN to GERAN

Whether the UEs support GERAN measurements

Whether the UEs comply with 3GPP Release 9 specifications

This information is used to configure neighboring GERAN cells and to determine


whether to perform CSFB based on handover or redirection. For details, see Inter-RAT

Enable a UE to camp on an E-UTRAN cell and originate a voice call. If so that the UE falls
back to a GERAN cell and completes the call continues, and the RRC Connection Release
message traced in on the Uu interface tracing carries the information of the neighboring
GERAN cell. In this case, flash CSFB to GERAN has been activated successfully.
In this case, flash CSFB to GERAN has been activated successfully. The procedure of flash
CS fallback to GERAN on the E-UTRAN side is the same as the procedure of redirectionbased CS fallback to GERAN. For details, see 7.1.6 Activation Observation. The difference
is that the RRC Connection Release message carries the system information of the
neighboring GERAN cell. For details, see Figure 7-20.

The activation observation procedure is as follows:
1.

Configure two neighboring GERAN cells with different LAIs for an E-UTRAN cell, and
enable the MME to include only one of the two LAIs in the instructions that will be
delivered to the eNodeB.

2.

Ensure that the signal strengths of the two GERAN cells both reach the threshold for
event B1. You can query the threshold by running the LST
INTERRATHOGERANGROUP command.

Enable a UE to camp on the E-UTRAN cell and make a voice call.

4.

Enable the UE to camp on the E-UTRAN cell and receive a voice call.

You can observe the signaling procedure for CSFB with LAI to GERAN, which is similar to
that for CSFB to GERAN described in 7.9.6 Activation Observation. The difference is that
the Initial Context Setup Request or UE Context Mod Request message carries the LAI that
the MME delivers to the eNodeB, as shown in the following figure:

7.13 LOFD-001089 CS Fallback Steering to GERAN


This section provides engineering guidelines for LOFD-001089 CS Fallback Steering to
GERAN.

7.13.1 When to Use CS Fallback Steering to GERAN


Use LOFD-001089 CS Fallback Steering to GERAN to improve the network efficiency when
both of the following conditions are met: LOFD-001034 CS Fallback to GERAN has been
activated. An operator owns multiple GERAN frequencies and the operator has different
handover policies for CS-only services and combined CS+PS services. If the operator owns
both UTRAN and GERAN, you can also activate LOFD-001088 CS Fallback Steering to
UTRAN to improve the network efficiency.

7.13.2 Required Information


1.

Collect information about whether LOFD-001034 CS Fallback to GERAN has been


activated.

2.

Collect the following information about the UEs that support GSM and LTE on the live
network:

Supported frequency bands

Whether the UEs support redirection from E-UTRAN to GERAN

Whether the UEs support PS handover from E-UTRAN to GERAN

Whether the UEs support CCO from E-UTRAN to GERAN

Whether the UEs support GERAN measurements

This information is used to configure neighboring GERAN cells and to determine


whether to perform CSFB based on handover, redirection, or CCO. For details, see InterRAT Mobility Management in Connected Mode Feature Parameter Description.
3.

Collect information about the frequencies and frequency policies of the GERAN.
Frequency policies must be the same for GERAN and E-UTRAN.

4.

If LOFD-001088 CS Fallback Steering to UTRAN is also to be activated, consider the


UTRAN frequencies when making frequency policies.

7.13.3 Requirements

The signaling procedure is the same as that for CSFB to GERAN. After CS Fallback Steering
to GERAN is used, check whether it works as expected.
The activation observation procedure for CSFB steering to GERAN is as follows:
1.

Check that the UE supports redirection-based CSFB and handover-based CSFB.

2.

Set CSFB policies for RRC_IDLE UEs and RRC_CONNECTED UEs to redirection and
handover, respectively.

3.

Enable the UE to initiate a voice call in idle mode and in connected mode.

4.

Observe the counters L.CSFB.E2G, L.RRCRedirection.E2G.CSFB, and


L.IRATHO.E2G.CSFB.ExecAttOut. If the values of the counters increase by 2, 1, and 1,
respectively, CSFB steering to GERAN has been activated.

If LOFD-001088 CS Fallback Steering to UTRAN has also been activated, the activation
observation procedure is as follows:
1.

Check that the UE supports CSFB to GERAN and CSFB to UTRAN.

2.

Set GERAN as the highest-priority RAT for CSFB triggered for RRC_IDLE UEs and
UTRAN as the highest-priority RAT for CSFB triggered for RRC_CONNECTED UEs.

3.

Enable the UE to initiate a voice call in idle mode and in connected mode.

4.

Observe the counters L.CSFB.E2W and L.CSFB.E2G. If both the values increase by 1,
both CSFB steering to UTRAN and CSFB steering to GERAN have been activated.

CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description

7 Engineering Guidelines

Fault Handling
Step 1 Create an S1 interface tracing task, use the UE to camp on the E-UTRAN cell again, and
check whether the value of the information element (IE) ePS-attach-type-value is "combinedattach" in the traced Attach Request message.
l

If so, go to Step 2.

If not, replace the UE with one that supports combined EPS/IMSI attach, and try again.

Step 2 Check whether the traced Attach Accept message includes the IE cs-domain-not-available.
l

If it does, go to Step 3.

If not, contact Huawei technical support.

Step 3 Contact the vendors of core network NEs to ensure the following:
l

Attach procedures to the CS domain are allowed according to the subscription data on
the HSS.

The core network supports CSFB.

The SGs interface is correctly configured.

----End

7.14.2 eNodeB Receiving No Measurement Report


Fault Description
An eNodeB delivers an RRC Connection Reconfiguration message for measurement control
to a UE that has initiated a voice call in the LTE network, but the eNodeB does not receive a
measurement report.

Fault Handling
Step 1 Check whether the RRC Connection Reconfiguration message contains B1-related
measurement configurations and whether the information about the inter-RAT systems in the
configuration is correct.
l

If it is, go to Step 2

If not, rectify the faults and try again.

Step 2 Check whether the coverage of the inter-RAT neighboring cell is satisfactory. If the coverage
is unsatisfactory, adjust B1-related parameters or use CSFB based on blind handovers.
For details about how to adjust B1-related parameters, see Inter-RAT Mobility Management in
Connected Mode.
----End

7.14.3 CSFB Blind Handover Failure


Fault Description
Even when blind handovers are configured as the preferred choice according to the operator
policies, instead of triggering a blind handover for CSFB, an eNodeB delivers an inter-RAT
measurement configuration to a UE that has initiated a voice call.

perform the following:
l

If CSFB to UTRAN is required, go to Step 3.

If CSFB to GERAN is required, go to Step 4.

Step 3 Run the LST UTRANNCELL command and check whether Blind handover priority is 0
for a neighboring UTRAN cell that is supposed to accept incoming blind handovers.
l

If Blind handover priority is 0, blind handovers to this cell are not allowed. In this
case, run the MOD UTRANNCELL command with the Blind handover priority
parameter set to a value other than 0.

If Blind handover priority is not 0, contact Huawei technical support.

Step 4 Run the LST GERANNCELL command and check whether Blind handover priority is 0
for a neighboring GERAN cell that is supposed to accept incoming blind handovers.
l

If Blind handover priority is 0, blind handovers to this cell are not allowed. In this
case, run the MOD GERANNCELL command with the Blind handover priority
parameter set to a value other than 0.

If Blind handover priority is not 0, contact Huawei technical support.

CDMA2000 1xRTT is enabled and UEs can fall back


to CDMA2000 1xRTT through handovers. If this
switch is off, eCSFB to CDMA2000 1xRTT is
disabled. EmcBlindHoA1Switch: If this switch is on,
blind handover event A1 measurements are enabled. If
a blind handover event measurement conflicts with a
handover procedure, an emergency blind handover
can be triggered after the handover procedure is
complete. If this switch is off, blind handover event
A1 measurements are disabled. If a blind handover
event measurement conflicts with a handover
procedure, an emergency blind handover cannot be
triggered. EmcInterFreqBlindHoSwitch: If this switch
is on, the eNodeB preferentially performs an interfrequency blind handover when an emergency blind
handover is triggered. If this switch is off, the eNodeB
only performs an inter-RAT blind handover when an
emergency blind handover is triggered. EPlmnSwitch:
Indicates whether handovers to neighboring cells
under the equivalent PLMNs (EPLMNs) are allowed.
When inter-PLMN handovers are allowed, handovers
to neighboring cells under the EPLMNs are allowed if
this switch is on, and not allowed if this switch is off.
The EPLMNs are delivered by the MME to the UE.
ServiceBasedInterFreqHoSwitch: If this switch is on,
service-based inter-frequency handovers are enabled
and UEs running a specific type of services can be
handed over to inter-frequency cells. If this switch is
off, service-based inter-frequency handovers are
disabled. This switch takes effect only for LTE TDD
cells. VoipHoControlSwitch: Indicates whether the
eNodeB filters out target cells that do not support
VoIP services when processing intra-RAT handovers
for VoIP services. The eNodeB filters out such target
cells in the preceding scenario only when this switch
is on. UtranUltraFlashCsfbSwitch: In this switch is on,
ultra-flash CSFB to UTRAN is enabled and UEs can
fall back to UTRAN based on the ultra-flash CSFB
procedure. If this switch is off, ultra-flash CSFB to
UTRAN is disabled. GeranUltraFlashCsfbSwitch: In
this switch is on, ultra-flash CSFB to GERAN is
enabled and UEs can fall back to GERAN based on
the ultra-flash CSFB procedure. If this switch is off,
ultra-flash CSFB to GERAN is disabled.

when UtranFreqLayerMeasSwitch is on. If
UtranFreqLayerMeasSwitch is on, the UTRAN
hierarchy-based measurement algorithm takes effect
for measurements related to coverage-based and
CSFB-triggered handovers from E-UTRAN to
UTRAN. If UtranFreqLayerBlindSwitch is on, the
UTRAN hierarchy-based blind-handover algorithm
takes effect for coverage-based and CSFB-triggered
blind handovers from E-UTRAN to UTRAN. If
UtranSrvccSwitch is on, the UTRAN SRVCC
hierarchy-based measurement algorithm takes effect
for coverage-based SRVCC-triggered handovers from
E-UTRAN to UTRAN.

Meaning: Indicates the circuit switched (CS) priority


of the neighboring UTRAN frequency, that is, the
priority for the neighboring UTRAN frequency to
carry CS services. During CSFB-based CS service
handovers with UtranFreqLayerMeasSwitch being on,
the eNodeB selects and delivers the neighboring
UTRAN frequencies based on the CS priorities when
starting measurements. The eNodeB preferentially
delivers the UTRAN frequency with the highest CS
priority to measure. During CSFB-based CS service
handovers with UtranFreqLayerBlindSwitch being on,
the eNodeB selects the target cells for blind handovers
on neighboring UTRAN frequencies based on the CS
priorities and preferentially selects the target cell for
blind handovers on the neighboring UTRAN
frequency with the highest CS priorities. If this
parameter is set to Priority_0, this neighboring
UTRAN frequency is not prioritized.

Meaning: Indicates the priority for the neighboring


UTRAN frequency to carry CS+PS combined
services. In measurement-based CSFB to UTRAN, if
UtranCsfbSteeringSwitch and UtranFreqLayerMeasSwitch are turned on, the eNodeB determines the
UTRAN frequency to be delivered to a UE in
RRC_CONNECTED mode based on the priority
specified by this parameter. The eNodeB
preferentially delivers the UTRAN frequency with the
highest CS+PS combined service priority to the UE.
In blind CSFB to UTRAN, if UtranCsfbSteeringSwitch and UtranFreqLayerBlindSwitch are turned on,
the target cell is selected based on the priority
specified by this parameter. The cell on the UTRAN
frequency with the highest priority is preferentially
selected. If this parameter is set to Priority_0, the
UTRAN frequency is not included in priority
arrangement for neighboring UTRAN frequencies to
carry CS+PS combined services.

CS
Fallback
to

Indicates the quantity to be measured for handovers to


UTRAN. For details, see 3GPP TS 36.331. This
parameter is dedicated to UTRAN FDD. The RSCP
values are relatively stable, while the ECN0 values
may vary with the network load. The value BOTH
applies only to UEs complying with 3GPP Release 10.
For UEs complying with 3GPP Release 8 or 9, the
value BOTH takes the same effect as the value RSCP.
In QoE-based handovers, this parameter does not
apply to UEs complying with 3GPP Release 8 or 9
and the measurement quantity is fixed to ECN0 for
such UEs.
If this parameter is set to RSCP, the eNodeB delivers
RSCP-based UTRAN measurement configurations to
UEs. If this parameter is set to ECN0, the eNodeB
delivers ECN0-based UTRAN measurement
configurations to UEs. If this parameter is set to
BOTH, the eNodeB delivers both RSCP- and ECN0based UTRAN measurement configurations to UEs
complying with 3GPP Release 10.

CS
Fallback
to
UTRAN

Meaning: Indicates the Ec/N0 threshold for event B1,


which is used in CS fallback to UTRAN. When CS
fallback to UTRAN is required, this parameter is set
for UEs and used in the evaluation about whether to
trigger event B1. This parameter indicates the Ec/N0
requirement for the UTRAN cells to be included in the
measurement report. A UE sends a measurement
report related to event B1 to the eNodeB when the
Ec/N0 in at least one UTRAN cell exceeds this
threshold and other triggering conditions are met. For
a cell with large signal fading variance, set this
parameter to a large value to prevent unnecessary
handovers. For a cell with small signal fading
variance, set this parameter to a small value to ensure
timely handovers. For details, see 3GPP TS 36.331.

CS
Fallback
to
UTRAN

Meaning: Indicates the time-to-trigger for event B1


that is used in CS fallback to UTRAN. When CS
fallback to UTRAN is applicable, this parameter is set
for UEs and used in the evaluation of whether to
trigger event B1. When detecting that the signal
quality in at least one UTRAN cell meets the entering
condition, the UE does not send a measurement report
to the eNodeB immediately. Instead, the UE sends a
report only when the signal quality continuously
meets the entering condition during the time-totrigger. This parameter helps decrease the number of
occasionally triggered event reports, the average
number of handovers, and the number of wrong
handovers, and thus helps to prevent unnecessary
handovers. For details, see 3GPP TS 36.331.

for blind redirection or delivers a frequency group in
measurement configuration messages. If a blind
redirection is triggered and the target neighboring cell
is not specified, the eNodeB selects a target frequency
group based on the setting of this parameter. If a
measurement configuration is to be delivered, the
eNodeB preferentially delivers the frequency group
with the highest priority. If this parameter is set to 0
for a frequency group, this frequency group is not
selected as the target frequency group for a blind
redirection. A larger value indicates a higher priority.

CS Fall
Back to
GERAN

Meaning: Indicates the RSSI threshold for event B1


that is used in CS fallback to GERAN. A UE sends a
measurement report related to event B1 to the eNodeB
when the RSSI in at least one GERAN cell exceeds
this threshold and other triggering conditions are met.

CS Fall
Back to
GERAN

Meaning: Indicates the time-to-trigger for event B1


that is used in CS fallback to GERAN. When CS
fallback to GERAN is applicable, this parameter is set
for UEs and used in the evaluation of whether to
trigger event B1. When detecting that the signal
quality in at least one GERAN cell meets the entering
condition, the UE does not send a measurement report
to the eNodeB immediately. Instead, the UE sends a
report only when the signal quality continuously
meets the entering condition during the time-totrigger. This parameter helps decrease the number of
occasionally triggered event reports, the average
number of handovers, and the number of wrong
handovers, and thus helps to prevent unnecessary
handovers. For details, see 3GPP TS 36.331.

12.1.1 Combined EPS/IMSI Attach Procedure
The combined EPS/IMSI attach procedure is performed by exchanging NAS messages.
Therefore, this procedure is transparent to the eNodeBs. After a CSFB-capable UE is powered
on in the E-UTRAN, the UE initiates a combined EPS/IMSI attach procedure, as shown in
Figure 12-1.

NOTE

The symbols that appear in signaling procedure figures throughout this document are explained as
follows:
l An arrow denotes the transmission of a message.
l A plain box denotes a mandatory procedure.
l A dashed box denotes an optional procedure.

The combined EPS/IMSI attach procedure is described as follows:


1.

The UE sends a Combined attach request message to the MME, requesting a combined
EPS/IMSI attach procedure. This message also indicates whether the CSFB or SMS over
SGs function is required.

2.

The EPS attach procedure is performed in the same way as it is performed within the
LTE system. For details, see section 5.3.2 in 3GPP TS 23.401 V9.2.0.

3.

The MME allocates an LAI to the UE, and then it finds the MSC/VLR for the UE based
on the LAI. If multiple PLMNs are available for the CS domain, the MME selects a
PLMN based on the selected PLMN information reported by the eNodeB. Then, the
MME sends the MSC/VLR a Location update request message, which contains the new
LAI, IMSI, MME name, and location update type.

4.

The MSC/VLR performs the location update procedure in the CS domain.

5.

The MSC/VLR responds with a Location update accept message that contains
information about the VLR and temporary mobile subscriber identity (TMSI). The
location update procedure is successful.

6.

The UE is informed that the combined EPS/IMSI attach procedure is successful. If the
network supports SMS over SGs but not CSFB, the message transmitted to the UE
contains the information element (IE) SMS-only. The message indicates that the
combined EPS/IMSI attach procedure is successful but only SMS is supported.

12.1.2 CSFB Based on PS Handover


During CSFB based on PS handover, the UE is transferred from the E-UTRAN to the
UTRAN by performing a PS handover. It then initiates a CS service in the UTRAN.

The eNodeB initiates the preparation phase for a PS handover. If the preparation is
successful, the eNodeB instructs the UE to perform a handover.
NOTE

For details about how the eNodeB selects a target cell and a CSFB policy, see 3.5 Handover
Decision and 3.6 Handover Execution.

5.

After the handover, the UE may initiate a CS call establishment procedure with an LAU
or combined RAU/LAU procedure in the UTRAN.

6.

The follow-up procedures are performed for the PS handover. These procedures include
data forwarding, path switching, and RAU. This step is performed together with 5.

1.

The MSC sends a Paging Request message from the CS domain to the MME over the
SGs interface. Then, either of the following occurs:

If the UE is in idle mode, the MME sends a Paging message to the eNodeB. Then
the eNodeB sends a Paging message over the Uu interface to inform the UE of an
incoming call from the CS domain.

If the UE is in active mode, the MME sends the UE an NAS message to inform the
UE of an incoming call from the CS domain.

2.

The UE sends an Extended Service Request message containing a CS Fallback Indicator


after receiving the paging message from the CS domain.

3.

The MME instructs the eNodeB over the S1 interface to perform CSFB.

4.

The subsequent steps are similar to steps 3 through 6 in the procedure for CSFB to
UTRAN based on PS handover for mobile-originated calls. The only difference is that
the UE sends a Paging Response message from the UTRAN cell.

12.1.3 Signaling procedure of redirection to CDMA2000 1xRTT


During CSFB based on PS redirection, the eNodeB receives a CS Fallback Indicator, and then
it sends an RRC Connection Release message to release the UE. The message contains
information about a target UTRAN frequency, reducing the time for the UE to search for a
target network. After selecting the UTRAN, the UE acquires the system information of a
UTRAN cell. Then, the UE performs initial access to the cell to initiate a CS service. For the
UTRAN, the UE is an initially accessing user.

CSFB Procedure for Mobile-terminated Calls


In a mobile-terminated call, the MSC sends a Paging request message from the CS domain to
the MME over the SGs interface, and then the MME or eNodeB initiates a paging procedure
for the UE. The paging procedure is similar to that for UTRAN described in 12.1.2 CSFB

Excludes the authentication procedure because the UE has been authenticated in the LTE
system before CSFB to UTRAN.

Excludes the ciphering procedure because the UE has performed ciphering as instructed

Excludes the IMEI check procedure because the MME has sent the IMEI to the MSC
during the preparation for SRVCC.

Excludes the CS resource setup procedure because the UTRAN system has prepared CS
resources during SRVCC and therefore the UE does not need to reestablish the CS
resource after SRVCC.

12.1.7 CSFB for SMS


SMS services are unknown to the eNodeB because SMS messages are encapsulated in NAS
messages. During interworking with the UTRAN, SMS messages are exchanged between the
MME and the MSC over the SGs interface. Because a UE does not require fallback to the
UTRAN to perform an SMS service, the SMS over SGs function can be used in a place
covered only by the E-UTRAN.
As the SMS service is transparent to the eNodeB, the procedure is not described in this
document. For details about the procedure, see section 8.2 in 3GPP TS 23.272 V10.0.0.

12.1.8 Emergency Call


The CSFB procedure for an emergency call is the same as the CSFB procedure for a normal
mobile-originated voice service. The UE sends an RRC Connection Request message over the
Uu interface or the MME sends an Initial Context Setup Request or UE Context Modification
Request message, which contains an IE to inform the eNodeB of the service type. Emergency
calls take precedence over other services in the eNodeB.
If PS handover is used for CSFB for emergency calls, the eNodeB does not restrict the cells in
the handover restriction list when selecting the target cell. The eNodeB sends the RNC a
handover request with the IE CSFB high priority in the IE Source to Target Transparent
Container. This request informs the RNC that a CSFB procedure is required for an emergency

call. Upon receiving the information, the RNC preferentially processes this call when using
related algorithms such as admission control.
If redirection is used for CSFB for emergency calls, the RRC Connection Request message
that the UE sends when accessing the UTRAN contains the indication of a CS emergency
call.
The UTRAN will treat this call as a common CS emergency call. For details about admission
and preemption of emergency calls, see Emergency Call.

12.1.9 CSFB for LCS


After a UE initiates an LCS request, the MME performs an attach or combined TAU/LAU
procedure to inform the UE of the LCS capability of the EPS. If the EPS does not support
LCS, the UE falls back to the UTRAN to initiate LCS under the control of the EPS. The
CSFB procedure is the same as the procedure for CSFB to UTRAN for mobile-originated
calls.
If the UTRAN initiates an LCS request towards a UE camping on an E-UTRAN cell, the
MSC sends an LCS indicator to the MME over the SGs interface. Then, the MME instructs
the eNodeB to perform CSFB for the UE. The CSFB procedure is the same as the procedure
for CSFB to UTRAN for mobile-terminated calls. The UE performs the LCS service after the
fallback to the UTRAN.
For details about the CSFB procedure for LCS, see section 8.3 in 3GPP TS 23.272 V10.0.0
and LCS.

12.2 CSFB to GERAN


12.2.1 Combined EPS/IMSI Attach Procedure
The combined EPS/IMSI attach procedure for CSFB to GERAN is the same as that for CSFB
to UTRAN. For details, see 12.1.1 Combined EPS/IMSI Attach Procedure.

12.2.2 CSFB Based on PS Handover


During CSFB based on PS handover, the UE is transferred from the E-UTRAN to the
GERAN by performing a PS handover. It then initiates a CS service in the GERAN. If the
GERAN or UE does not support dual transfer mode (DTM, in which CS and PS services run
simultaneously), the ongoing PS services of the UE are suspended before a CS service is set
up.

The MME has sent the IMEI to the MSC during the preparation for SRVCC. There, the
procedure is not required in the GERAN after SRVCC.

CS resource setup procedure


The GSM system has prepared CS resources during SRVCC and therefore the UE does
not need to reestablish the CS resource after SRVCC. There, the procedure is not
required in the GERAN after SRVCC.

When the UE completes voice services in the GERAN after the Ultra-Flash CSFB to
GERAN, you can enable the Fast Return to LTE feature on the GERAN side so that the UE
quickly returns to the E-UTRAN. After the UE completes voice services in the GERAN, the
UE carries the LTE frequency information in a Channel Release message and selects a proper
LTE cell to camp on based on the frequency information to accelerate the return to the EUTRAN.
When IratMeasCfgTransSwitch is set to ON, the eNodeB filters LTE frequencies supported
by the UE based on the UE capability to obtain a frequency set. During the SRVCC, the
eNodeB sends a Handover Required message containing the frequency set to the BSC of the
target cell and provides reference for the UE to accelerate the return to the E-UTRAN after
the UE completes voice services on the GERAN.

12.2.7 CSFB for SMS


SMS services are unknown to the eNodeB because SMS messages are encapsulated in NAS
messages. During interworking with the GERAN, SMS messages are exchanged between the
MME and the MSC over the SGs interface. Because a UE does not require fallback to the
GERAN to perform an SMS service, the SMS over SGs function can be used in a place
covered only by the E-UTRAN.
As the SMS service is transparent to the eNodeB, the procedure is not described in this
document. For details about the procedure, see section 8.2 in 3GPP TS 23.272 V10.0.0.

12.2.8 Emergency Call


The CSFB procedure for an emergency call is the same as the CSFB procedure for a normal
mobile-originated voice service. The UE sends an RRC Connection Request message over the
Uu interface or the MME sends an Initial Context Setup Request or UE Context Modification
Request message, which contains an IE to inform the eNodeB of the service type. Emergency
calls take precedence over other services in the eNodeB.
If PS handover is used for CSFB for emergency calls, the eNodeB does not restrict the cells in
the handover restriction list when selecting the target cell.
If redirection is used for CSFB for emergency calls, the Channel Request message that the UE
sends when accessing the GERAN contains the indication of a CS emergency call.
The GERAN will treat this call as a common CS emergency call. For details about admission
and preemption of emergency calls, see Emergency Call.

12.2.9 CSFB for LCS


After a UE initiates an LCS request, the MME performs an attach or combined TAU/LAU
procedure to inform the UE of the LCS capability of the EPS. If the EPS does not support
LCS, the UE falls back to the GERAN to initiate LCS under the control of the EPS. The

CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description

12 Appendix

CSFB procedure is the same as the procedure for CSFB to GERAN for mobile-originated
calls.
If the GERAN initiates an LCS request towards a UE camping on an E-UTRAN cell, the
MSC sends an LCS indicator to the MME over the SGs interface. Then, the MME instructs
the eNodeB to perform CSFB for the UE. The CSFB procedure is the same as the procedure
for CSFB to GERAN for mobile-terminated calls. The UE performs the LCS service after the
fallback to the GERAN.
For details about the CSFB procedure for LCS, see section 8.3 in 3GPP TS 23.272 V10.0.0
and LCS.
