SingleRAN UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone Feature Parameter Description

2 Overview

2 Overview

2.1 Background

The popularization of intelligent terminals accelerates user migration to next-generation networks. As traffic loads on UMTS networks lighten, operators can release the spectrums occupied by UMTS networks and reuse them for LTE networks. This improves spectral efficiency and data throughput. This is called UMTS and LTE refarming.

In live networks, some areas need more capacity from UMTS networks while the other areas require more from LTE networks. To ensure capacity and user satisfaction in hotspot areas with heavy UMTS traffic, spectrum resources occupied by UMTS networks cannot be released. However, in areas with low UMTS traffic, the spectrums occupied by UMTS networks can be released for LTE networks. The released spectrums are used for LTE high- end UEs, thereby fulfilling growing LTE capacity requirements.

To cancel the inter-RAT interference in areas covered both by UMTS and LTE networks, the conventional solution is to plan a buffer zone surrounding hotspot areas. Geographical isolation is used to reduce the co-channel inter-RAT interference between UMTS and LTE networks. However, LTE cells in the physical buffer zone cannot use spectrums occupied by UMTS hotspot areas, which results in significant spectrum waste.

The UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone feature is introduced to eliminate the need of buffer zone planning in scenarios where deployment requirements of this feature are met, thereby improving the spectrum efficiency.

2.2 Introduction

The UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone feature optimizes LTE scheduling to mitigate interference of LTE UEs to UMTS NodeBs and reduce the received total wideband power (RTWP) of UMTS NodeBs. Moreover, this feature improves spectrum efficiency in specific scenarios by eliminating the need of planning buffer zones.

The following basic concepts are involved in this document:

l Exclusive spectrum

Exclusive UMTS spectrums can be used only by UMTS networks, while exclusive LTE spectrums can be used only by LTE networks.

SingleRAN UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone Feature Parameter Description

2 Overview

l

Shared spectrum

Shared spectrums can be shared between UMTS and LTE networks.

Shared spectrums can be specified by ULSharedFreqStartRB and ULSharedFreqEndRB . Spectrums between ULSharedFreqStartRB and ULSharedFreqEndRB are shared spectrums.

l

Intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cell

Co-channel interference exists between an LTE cell and its neighboring UMTS cell since the two cells use some same spectrums in networks. The frequency neighboring UMTS cell is called the LTE cell's intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cell.

You can run the ADD UTRANNFREQ or MOD UTRANNFREQ command and set ULSharedFreqInd to True to add a frequency to the intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cell of an LTE cell.

2.3 Benefits

During UL refarming, this feature eliminates the need for buffer zone planning in scenarios where certain feature deployment requirements are met, thereby reducing the difficulty in UL refarming. This can accelerate network development to more recent mode and improves spectrum efficiency.

Assume that an operator has 15 MHz of spectrum resources, which is allocated evenly among exclusive UMTS spectrums, and exclusive LTE spectrums, and shared UL spectrums. With this feature, 10 MHz spectrums can be used for LTE networks in pre-planned buffer zones with 5 MHz for exclusive LTE spectrums and 5 MHz used for shared UL spectrums. In such a case, in cells where this feature is applied:

l

LTE UEs can use full 10 MHz of spectrum resources for the downlink, nearly doubling the capacity of original buffer zone deployment, where only 5 MHz of spectrum resources are available for these LTE UEs.

l

Only LTE cell center users (CCUs) can use the entire 10 MHz of spectrum resources. LTE cell edge users (CEUs) can use only 5 MHz of the exclusive LTE spectrum resources.

SingleRAN UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone Feature Parameter Description

3 Technical Description

3 Technical Description

3.1 Overview

To ensure a smooth transition from UMTS to LTE, operators can select AvoidUtranInterfSwitch under AvoidInterfSwitch to enable the UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone feature in scenarios where requirements for feature deployment are met. There is no need to plan buffer zones when this feature is enabled.

To optimize the RTWP and uplink performance of intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cells, this feature is introduced for LTE UEs to schedule RBs in uplink channels.

l Different RB scheduling schemes are applied to the uplink PUSCH based on the locations of LTE UEs.

For LTE CEUs, only the RB resources on the exclusive LTE spectrums can be scheduled for the PUSCH because the path loss between these UEs and intra- frequency neighboring UMTS cells is relatively small.

For LTE CCUs, RB resources on the shared UL spectrums can be preferentially scheduled for the PUSCH because the path loss between these UEs and intra- frequency neighboring UMTS cells is relatively large.

Figure 3-1 shows how spectrums are allocated for two adjacent base stations, assuming an operator owns 15 MHz of spectrum resources, among which exclusive LTE, and UMTS spectrums, and the shared UL spectrums are allocated 5 MHz each.

UMTS networks use shared spectrums for sites (left in the figure) and the UMTS networks also have 5 MHz exclusive spectrums. Exclusive LTE spectrums are 5 MHz.

LTE networks use shared spectrums for sites (right in the figure) and the LTE networks also have 5 MH exclusive spectrums. Exclusive UMTS spectrums are 5 MHz.

RB resources are allocated to LTE UEs based on their locations, as shown in Figure 3-1.

l The uplink PUCCH of LTE UEs is at the edge of the spectrum resources, therefore the WRFD-140225 Narrowband Interference Suppression interference feature shall be enabled to mitigate the interference caused by the PUCCH.

For details, see 3.3 Mitigating Interference of the LTE PUCCH to UMTS.

3.2 Mitigating mitigate interference of the LTE PUSCH to UMTS

The eNodeB applies different PUSCH RB scheduling schemes to LTE UEs based on their locations, thereby mitigating interference of the LTE PUSCH to UMTS.

l

For LTE CEUs, only RBs on exclusive LTE spectrums can be scheduled for the PUSCH.

l

For LTE CCUs, RBs on UL shared spectrums can be preferentially scheduled for the PUSCH.

3-2 Procedure for determining an LTE UE's location Issue 01 (2015-03-23) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential

SingleRAN UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone Feature Parameter Description

3 Technical Description

Step 1

Check the uplink RB usage rate in an LTE cell.

l

If the uplink RB usage rate in the LTE cell is less than or equal to ULZeroBufZonePRBThd, the RB usage rate is low, and therefore all UEs can only use RBs on exclusive LTE spectrums.

l

If the uplink RB usage rate in the LTE cell is greater than ULZeroBufZonePRBThd for three consecutive seconds, the RB usage is high. In this case, go to Step 2.

Step 2

Check the location of an LTE UE based on its RSRP.

1.

Check the UE's location initially based on the downlink RSRP in the serving cell.

 

If the RSCP is less than or equal to ULZeroBufZoneRsrpThd minus ULZeroBufZoneRsrpOffset , the UE is a CEU.

If the RSCP is greater than or equal to ULZeroBufZoneRsrpThd , the UE is a CCU.

If the RSCP falls into the range of the following two: ULZeroBufZoneRsrpThd minus ULZeroBufZoneRsrpOffset, and ULZeroBufZoneRsrpThd , measurement in intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cells shall be started. In this case, go to Step 3.

 

2.

If you have initially determined whether the UE is a CEU or CCE in 2.1, check whether the uplink RB usage rate is less than ULZeroBufZonePRBThd minus ULZeroBufZonePRBOffset.

 

If you have, go to Step 1.

If you have not, go to 2.1.

Step 3

Enable the UE to perform measurement in intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cells.

1. Check whether the uplink RB usage rate in the LTE cell is less than ULZeroBufZonePRBThd minus ULZeroBufZonePRBOffset for three consecutive seconds.

If it is, stop the measurement and go to Step 1.

If it is not, go to 3.2.

2. Check whether the UE's downlink RSRP is greater than the sum of ULZeroBufZoneRsrpThd and ULZeroBufZoneB1RmvOffset or less than ULZeroBufZoneRsrpThd minus the sum of ULZeroBufZoneRsrpOffset and

ULZeroBufZoneB1RmvOffset.

If it is, stop the measurement and go to Step 2.

If it is not, go to 3.3.

3. Enable the eNodeB to instruct the UE to perform measurement in intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cells. All the neighboring UMTS cells working on spectrums with the values being ULSharedFreqInd. Then, you can determine the UE's location based on the RSCP of a neighboring UMTS cell as follows:

If the measured RSCP of the neighboring UMTS cell is less than ULZeroBufZoneUtranRscpThd , the UE is a CCU.

If the measured RSCP of the neighboring UMTS cell is greater than or equal to ULZeroBufZoneUtranRscpThd , the UE is a CEU.

In addition, to better determine the location of UEs 3.3, a user-level timer ULZeroBufZoInterRatB1Timer can be started to periodically perform Step 3.

SingleRAN UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone Feature Parameter Description

3 Technical Description

NOTED e s c r i p t i o n 3 Technical Description Because the

Because the downlink RSRP of an LTE UE cannot be obtained in realtime, the downlink RSRP in the serving cell is estimated based on uplink path loss. Therefore, the actual downlink RSRP can be slightly different.

RBs are allocated on semi-persistent scheduling and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services on exclusive LTE spectrums.

3.3 Mitigating Interference of the LTE PUCCH to UMTS

The uplink PUCCH of LTE UEs is at the edge of the spectrum resources, therefore the interference of the PUCCH to UMTS can only be prevented by using the WRFD-140225 Narrowband Interference Suppression interference feature. The uplink RB scheduling optimization for the PUSCH does not apply to the LTE PUCCH.

When an LTE UE is located in an LTE cell with weak coverage, the uplink PUCCH's transmit power is large to ensure good communication. In this case, the WRFD-140225 Narrowband Interference Suppression interference feature identifies the PUCCH's interference and suppresses the interference through adaptive filtering, thereby optimizing the uplink RTWP and improving the uplink quality in UMTS.

NOTEthe uplink RTWP and improving the uplink quality in UMTS. For details about the WRFD-140225 Narrowband

Prerequisite Features

l WRFD-140225 Narrowband Interference Suppression

This feature must be enabled to suppress the interference of the LTE PUCCH to intra- frequency neighboring UMTS cells.

Mutually Exclusive Features

The UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone feature and features related to Inter-cell interference coordination (ICIC) are mutually exclusive for two reasons. First, application scenarios for the two features are different. The UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone feature is applied to mixed networking with LTE using different bandwidths while the ICIC-related feature requires continuous LTE coverage with the same frequency and bandwidth. Second, the two features group LTE RB resources differently. ICIC-related features are list as follows:

l

LBFD-00202202 Uplink Static Inter-Cell Interference Coordination

l

LOFD-00101402 Uplink Dynamic Inter-Cell Interference Coordination

l

LOFD-060201 Adaptive Inter-Cell Interference Coordination

l

LAOFD-002001 Static TDM eICIC

This feature is also mutually exclusive with features related to single frequency network (SFN). This feature cannot determine the location of a UE in an SFN cell because interference between SFN cells cannot be simply determined based on thresholds related to the level. SFN-related features are list as follows:

l

LOFD-003029 SFN

l

LOFD-070205 Adaptive SFN/SDMA

Impacted Features

l This feature affects scheduling-related features.

This feature categorizes UEs into two types: CCUs and CEUs.

When the uplink RB usage rate in an LTE cell is less than or equal to ULZeroBufZonePRBThd , all the UEs can only use RB resources on the exclusive LTE spectrums in the uplink.

When the uplink RB usage rate in an LTE cell is greater than ULZeroBufZonePRBThd, CCUs can preferentially use RB resources on the shared

spectrums while CEUs can only use RB resources on the exclusive LTE spectrums. This is to improve the uplink spectrum efficiency.

When this feature is enabled, uplink interference randomization automatically becomes invalid.

5 Network Impact

5 Network Impact

System Capacity

When this feature is used, buffer zone planning is not required between UMTS and LTE networks. Compared with buffer zone planning, this feature improves the spectrum efficiency in buffer zone areas and improves their network capacity.

Because certain requirements are imposed on uplink RB scheduling for LTE cells, LTE CEUs close to intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cells cannot use RB resources on UL shared spectrums. Though this causes certain loss in uplink LTE capacity compared with the LTE network with no interference, the downlink LTE capacity is greatly improved with a maximum of 100% capacity gains.

Network Performance

l

Impact on the UMTS system

In scenarios of adjacent UMTS and LTE sites with the same interference, this feature can optimize the RTWP in UMTS cells, thereby ensuring UMTS uplink performance.

l

Impact on the LTE system

After this feature is enabled, different center frequencies occur in LTE networks due to different bandwidths used by LTE networks and intra-frequency inter-LTE-cell handovers increase.

6 Engineering Guidelines

6 Engineering Guidelines

6.1 When to Use UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone

This feature is recommended in scenarios with the following conditions met:

l

UL refarming is enabled.

l

An operator requires continuous spectrums of at least 10 MHz.

l

At least 5 MHz shall be exclusive LTE spectrums.

l

Inter-site distance is greater than one kilometer.

This feature optimizes RB scheduling based on the difference between UE-serving cell path loss and UE-neighboring cell path loss. The path loss difference is relatively small in scenarios with short inter-site distance, which makes the network performance deteriorate due to inter-RAT interference between UMTS and LTE. Therefore, this feature is recommended in scenarios with inter-site distance greater than one kilometer for eliminating the need of UL buffer zone planning.

For details about the recommended spectrum allocation scheme, see Figure 6-1.

NOTE

This feature has no special requirements on frequency bands and is supported on the 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1900 MHz, AWS, and 2100MHz frequency band.

During sports events or other mass gatherings, the uplink spectrum usage rate is much greater than the downlink spectrum usage rate in LTE networks. In this case, a buffer zone is recommended for guaranteed users' experience in terms of data uploading.

6.3 Network Planning

6.3.1 RF Planning

When planning your network, the following guidelines are recommended:

l

Plan the following spectrums in sequence during UL refarming: exclusive LTE spectrums, shared UL spectrums, and exclusive UMTS spectrums.

l

The recommended ratio of shared UL spectrums to exclusive LTE spectrums is no greater than 2:1 to prevent limitations on uplink resources caused by a large difference between shared spectrums and exclusive LTE spectrums.

l

Exclusive LTE spectrums be on the lower frequency band and RB resources occupied by the PRACH should be on the exclusive LTE spectrums.

6.3.2 Network Planning

This feature turns the network into inter-frequency LTE networking. Therefore, inter- frequency UMTS and LTE neighboring cell configuration shall be added to LTE and UMTS networks.

6.4.5 Activation Observation

You can use either of the following methods for activation observation:

l

Starting a RRC_MEAS_RPRT tracing task of Uu signaling Trace on the LMT

Check whether the UE periodically reports the RSCP of UMTS cells (specified by ULZeroBufZoInterRatB1Timer). If UTRAN measurement results are periodically reported, this feature is successfully activated.

l

Using performance counters

The feature is successfully activated if the uplink PRB usage rate is greater than ULZeroBufZonePRBThd and none of the values of the following three counters is zero:

L.Traffic.ULShared.USER.Avg

L.ChMeas.PRB.UL.ULShared.Used.Avg

L.Thrp.bits.UL.Freqshare

6.4.6 Deactivation

6.4.6.1 Using MML Commands

Step 1

Run the eNodeB MML command MOD CELLALGOSWITCH and set Interference avoidance switch to AvoidUtranInterfSwitch(AvoidUtranInterfSwitch).

Step 2

Run the eNodeB MML command MOD UTRANNFREQ and set UMTS/LTE Shared Frequency Indicator to BOOLEAN_FALSE(False).

6.5 Performance Monitoring

l

After this feature is enabled, the uplink and downlink throughput rates in an LTE cell greatly increase and the RTWP of intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cells stay stable.

Downlink throughput rate = L.Thrp.bits.DL/L.Thrp.Time.DL

Uplink throughput rate = L.Thrp.bits.UL/L.Thrp.Time.UL

RTWP of an intra-frequency neighboring UMTS cell = VS.MeanRTWP

l

You can calculate the usage rate of shared UL spectrums and then obtain capacity gains brought by this feature using the following performance counters:

Uplink throughput rate of CCUs in a cell = Uplink PDCP-layer traffic volume of CCUs in a cell using the UMTS and LTE shared spectrum (L.Thrp.bits.UL.Freqshare)/Total uplink traffic volume for PDCP PDUs in a cell (L.Thrp.bits.UL)

Usage rate of PRBs on shared UL spectrums used by CCUs = Number of used PUSCH uplink PRBs on UL shared spectrums (L.ChMeas.PRB.UL.ULShared.Used.Avg)/Average number of used uplink PRBs (L.ChMeas.PRB.UL.Used.Avg)

Ratio of the CCU number to the total user number in a cell using UL Refarming Zero Bufferzone = Average number of CCUs using UL shared spectrums (L.Traffic.ULShared.USER.Avg)/Average number of users in a cell L.Traffic.User.Avg)
