1 Uplink Resource Allocation
1.1 SRS Resource Allocation
1.1.1 SrsSubframeCfg (SRS subframe configuration)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the index for initial cell-level SRS subframe configuration.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: SC0(0), SC1(1), SC2(2), SC3(3), SC4(4), SC5(5), SC6(6), SC7(7), SC8(8),
SC9(9), SC10(10), SC11(11), SC12(12), SC13(13), SC14(14)
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: SC3(3) for FDD, SC0(0) for TDD
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Setting
The protocol specifies that the number of subframe trees is configurable within a 10-ms
measurement period. If the number of UEs is small, a small amount of cell-level SRS
subframe resources is configured. This reduces the usage of PUSCH resources.
If the cell load is light, a small and fixed amount of cell-level SRS resources can be
configured. The current algorithm supports adaptive configuration of cell-level subframes.
For example, the subframes can be configured every 2 or 5 milliseconds as required.
This parameter affects the configuration of cell-level SRS subframes. If the number of
configured cell-level subframes increases, the uplink cell throughput decreases.

MOD SRSCFG: LocalCellId=x, SrsSubframeCfg=x;
[]

1.1.2 SrsSubframeRecfSwitch (SRS subframe tree reconfiguration
switch)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates whether the function of reconfiguring cell-level subframe
trees is enabled. If this parameter is set to ON, the number of cell-level SRS subframes
adjusts adaptively based on the cell load. If this parameter is set to OFF, the cell-level SRS
subframe configuration is fixed.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: ON, OFF
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: on
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Setting
This parameter is set to ON by default. If this parameter is set to OFF, cell-level SRS
subframes cannot be reconfigured. As a result, SRS resources are unavailable to UEs that
newly accessed the network.

MOD CELLALGOSWITCH: LocalCellId=x, SrsAlgoSwitch=SrsSubframeRecfSwitch-x;
1.1.3 AnSrsSimuTrans (SRS ACK/NACK simultaneous
transmission)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates whether the SRS and ACK/NACK (AN) or scheduling
request (SR) can be transmitted in the same transmission time interval (TTI).
Value type: bool
Value range: BOOLEAN_FALSE(False), BOOLEAN_TRUE(True)
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: BOOLEAN_TRUE(True)
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
[]

Setting
If this parameter is set to BOOLEAN_TRUE, the AN or SR is truncated, and the SRS and
AN or SR can be transmitted in the same TTI. If this parameter is set to BOOLEAN_FALSE,
the AN or SR is not truncated, and the SRS is discarded if the SRS and AN or SR are
transmitted in the same TTI.
This parameter is set to BOOLEAN_TRUE by default. This parameter can be set to
BOOLEAN_FALSE to ensure AN or SR performance if the PUCCH demodulation
performance cannot meet requirements.
If this parameter is set to BOOLEAN_TRUE, the AN or SR demodulation performance may
be affected. If this parameter is set to BOOLEAN_FALSE, timeout may occur.

1.2 Uplink Scheduling
1.2.1 Scheduling in Each TTI
1.2.1.1 UlschStrategy (Uplink Scheduling Strategy)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the uplink scheduling policy that determines the
scheduling priority and the scheduling order in which UEs are arranged on the uplink. There
are four uplink scheduling policies: MAX C/I, proportional fair (PF), round robin (RR), and
enhanced proportional fair (EPF).
Value type: enumeration
Value range: ULSCH_STRATEGY_EPF(EPF), ULSCH_STRATEGY_MAX_CI(MAX_CI),
ULSCH_STRATEGY_PF(PF), ULSCH_STRATEGY_RR(RR)
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: ULSCH_STRATEGY_EPF(EPF)
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Setting
If the Max C/I scheduling policy is used, UEs for which channel quality is good are scheduled
first. The spectral efficiency improves but the quality of service (QoS) and fairness cannot be
ensured. The Max C/I scheduling policy can be used to verify the maximum system capacity.
The RR scheduling policy ensures fairness but lowers the system capacity. This scheduling
policy can be used to verify the upper threshold of system scheduling fairness. The PF
[]

scheduling policy balances between spectral efficiency and fairness. This scheduling policy
can be used to verify the system capacity, coverage, and fairness. In the EPF scheduling
policy, the QoS, system capacity, and frequency selection are balanced. The basic scheduling
policies MAX C/I, PF, and RR are used in performance tests. The EPF scheduling policy is
intended for commercial use.
Impact of parameter setting on network performance: If this parameter is set to
ULSCH_STRATEGY_EPF, the QoS is guaranteed, and the coverage, capacity, and fairness
are balanced. If this parameter is set to ULSCH_STRATEGY_MAX_CI, the system
capacity is maximized, but the coverage, fairness, and QoS are not ensured. If this parameter
is set to ULSCH_STRATEGY_PF, a tradeoff among the coverage, capacity, and fairness is
reached, but the QoS is not guaranteed. If this parameter is set to ULSCH_STRATEGY_RR,
the eNodeB ensures that each UE has an equal opportunity to be scheduled on the uplink, but
the capacity, coverage, and QoS are not ensured.

1.2.1.2 PreAllocationSwitch (Pre-Allocation Switch)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates whether the pre-allocation algorithm is enabled.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: ON, OFF
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: on
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Setting
The pre-allocation algorithm can reduce the end-to-end service latency when the uplink load
is light. No resource is available for pre-allocation when the uplink load is heavy.
Parameter adjustment scenario:
This parameter can be set to ON to decrease the end-to-end service latency.
This parameter can be set to OFF to maintain the UE standby time during pre-allocation.
This parameter can be set to OFF to clear the interference caused by pre-allocation.
Impact of parameter setting on network performance: Setting this parameter to ON reduces
the probability of UE entering the DRX state, shortens the UE standby time, and increases
interference with neighboring cells.

LST CELLALGOSWITCH:
MOD CELLALGOSWITCH: LocalCellId=x, UlSchSwitch=PreAllocationSwitch-x;
1.2.1.3 PreAllocationMinPeriod (minimal period of pre-allocation)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the minimum interval between pre-allocations. The
interval between pre-allocations of one UE must be longer than or equal to the value of this
parameter. If this parameter is set to 1, a UE is pre-allocated in every TTI.
Value type: integer
Value range: 1 to 10
Adjustment step: 1
Unit: ms
Default value: 5
Parameter relationship: This parameter is valid only when PreAllocationSwitch is set to ON.
Impact scope: cell
Setting
This parameter is used to control the impact of pre-allocation on UE standby time. Increasing
the value of this parameter reduces the number of times UEs can be pre-allocated and
increases the UE standby time. Decreasing the value of this parameter increases the number of
times UEs can be pre-allocated and reduces the UE standby time.
Parameter adjustment scenario:
If a decrease in the pre-allocation interval is required, you are advised to decrease the
value of this parameter.
If an increase in the UE standby time is required, you are advised to increase the value of
this parameter.

MOD CELLULSCHALGO: LocalCellId=x, PreAllocationMinPeriod =x;
1.2.1.4 PreAllocationSize (data size of pre-allocation)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the data amount pre-allocated to each UE.
Value type: integer
Value range: 45 to 1500
Adjustment step: 1
[]

Unit: byte
Default value: 80
Parameter relationship: This parameter is valid only when PreAllocationSwitch is set to ON.
Impact scope: cell
Setting
This parameter determines the amount of bandwidth resources pre-allocated to UEs based on
an estimated amount of service data. If the data amount specified by this parameter matches
the service type, there is a low probability that the data is fragmented at the Media Access
Control (MAC) layer. As a result, the service latency is short. If the data amount specified by
this parameter is less than the actual amount of data to be transmitted, there is a high
probability that the data is fragmented at the MAC layer. As a result, the service latency is
long. If the data amount specified by this parameter is greater than the actual amount of data
to be transmitted, resources are wasted and interference increases.
Parameter adjustment scenario:
If the end-to-end latency is long, you are advised to increase the value of this parameter.
If the transmitted data is less than the pre-allocated data amount, you are advised to
decrease the value of this parameter until the pre-allocated data amount is equal to the
transmitted data amount.

1.2.2 Physical Layer Measurement Result Processing
1.2.2.1 SinrAdjustSwitch (SINR adjust switch)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates whether the eNodeB adjusts the SINR based on the
ACK/NACK message received when HARQ is enabled on the uplink.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: ON, OFF
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: ON
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Setting
Due to inaccurate channel evaluation, inaccurate SINR measurement, or delays, the actual
channel conditions may not be suitable for the UE MCS and the measured IBLER is higher
[]

than the target IBLER. The eNodeB uses the SINR adjustment algorithm to counteract the
measurement error.
Related Commands
LST CELLALGOSWITCH
MOD CELLALGOSWITCH: LocalCellId=x, UlSchSwitch=SinrAdjustSwitch-x;
1.2.2.2 SinrAdjustTargetIbler (SINR target IBLER adjustment)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the target IBLER for the SINR adjustment algorithm.
Value type: double
Value range: 1 to 99
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: %
Default value: 10
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Setting
On the physical layer, the IBLER decides the SINR threshold for MCS switches, which is
10% by default. On the data link layer, the SINR adjustment increases with the IBLER.
Due to the diversity combination gains, if the SINR adjustment step is large, a high-order
MCS is used and system throughout increases.
Parameter adjustment scenario: This parameter must set to maximize the system throughput
when HARQ and uplink SINR adjustment are enabled.
Impact of parameter setting on network performance: This parameter is set to achieve a
balance between the initial MCS order and the number of retransmissions. The setting of this
parameter affects cell throughput.

2 Downlink Resource Allocation
2.1 PUCCH Resource Allocation
2.1.1 DeltaShift (Delta Shift)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the cyclic shift offset between two ACK or scheduling
request indication (SRI) cord channels that use the same orthogonal cover (OC) code.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: DS1_DELTA_SHIFT(ds1), DS2_DELTA_SHIFT(ds2),
DS3_DELTA_SHIFT(ds3)
Unit: none
Default value: none
Setting
Recommended value:
Set this parameter to DS2_DELTA_SHIFT(ds2) for a cell configured with the normal
cyclic prefix (CP) when the LBBPc is used.
Set this parameter to DS3_DELTA_SHIFT(ds3) for a cell configured with the extended
CP when the LBBPc is used.
Set this parameter to DS1_DELTA_SHIFT(ds1) for a cell configured with the normal CP
when the LBBPd is used.
Set this parameter to DS3_DELTA_SHIFT(ds3) for a cell configured with the extended
CP when the LBBPd is used.
Increasing the value of this parameter reduces the maximum number of ACK or SRI UEs that
an RB supports for multiplexing and reduces the PUCCH capacity. If this parameter is set to a
small value, the ACK or the SRI code channels may not be orthogonal.

MOD PUCCHCFG: LocalCellId=x, DeltaShift=DSX_DELTA_SHIFT;
2.1.2 SriAdaptiveSwitch (SRI adaptive switch)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates whether SRI periodic adjustment is enabled.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: ON, OFF
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: ON
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: eNodeB
Recommended value: ON
Setting
If this parameter is set to ON, the maximum number of SRI UEs supported in a cell increases
without using more uplink control signaling resources or increasing the number of ACK or
SRI cord channels. However, the average uplink scheduling delay increases when the PUCCH
is heavily loaded. If this parameter is set to OFF and the number of ACK or SRI code channel
remains unchanged, the maximum number of SRI UEs supported in a cell decreases.
If SRI periodic adjustment is enabled and the PUCCH is heavily loaded, more UEs can be
allocated SRI resources for network access.

2.1.3 FixedSriPeriod (SRI Period)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the period of SRI.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: ms5, ms10, ms20, ms40
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: ms
Default value: ms10
Parameter relationship: none
[]

Impact scope: eNodeB
Recommended value: If UEs are on an ultra-high speed train, set this parameter to ms10. For
other scenarios, set the parameter based on the QCI of services. If the configuration of TDD
uplink and downlink subframe ratio is 0 or 1, set this parameter to ms5 for services with QCI3
or QCI5; ms10 for services with QCI1, QCI2 or QCI7; 20ms for services with QCI4, QCI6,
QCI8, or QCI9.
Setting
Increasing the value of this parameter increases the average SRI period for UEs and the
maximum number of SRI UEs supported in a cell. However, the average uplink scheduling
delay may increase. Decreasing the value of this parameter reduces the maximum number of
SRI UEs supported in a cell.

2.1.4 PucchSwitch (PUCCH algorithm switch)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates whether self-adaptive PUCCH resource adjustment is
enabled.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: ON, OFF
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: ON
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Recommended value: You are advised to set this parameter to OFF for UEs on ultra-high
speed trains. In other scenarios, set this parameter to ON.
Setting
If this parameter is set to ON, PUCCH resource increases or decreases self-adaptively based
on the load on the PUCCH, optimizing PUCCH resource utilization and reducing uplink
control signaling overhead. However, when PUCCH resource decreases, the eNodeB may
need to reallocate PUCCH resources to a few UEs, using more downlink resources. If this
parameter is set to OFF, uplink control signaling overhead increases.

2.1.5 SriLowLoadThd (SRI Low Load Threshold)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the threshold for entering the low load state of SRI
resources.
Value type: integer
Value range: 0 to 50
Adjustment step: 1
Unit: none
Default value: 10
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Recommended value:
In FDD mode with the bandwidth of 1.4 MHz or 3 MHz, set this parameter to 0.
In FDD mode with the bandwidth of 5 MHz or 10 MHz, set this parameter to 10.
In FDD mode with the bandwidth of 15 MHz or 20 MHz, set this parameter to 20.
In TDD mode with the bandwidth of 1.4 MHz or 3 MHz, set this parameter to 0.
In TDD mode with the bandwidth of 5 MHz or 10 MHz, set this parameter to 10.
In TDD mode with the bandwidth of 15 MHz or 20 MHz, set this parameter to 20.
Setting
You are advised to retain the default value of the parameter. If adjustments are inevitable, do
not set this parameter to a value much greater than the default value, because this may lead to
incorrect decisions on the load status of SRI resources. The recommended maximum value of
this parameter is 20 if the downlink bandwidth is less than 10 MHz and 40 for other
bandwidths.
Increasing the value of this parameter reduces the SRI resources in a cell. Decreasing the
value of this parameter increases the SRI resources of a cell.

CQIs based on the IBLER.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: ON, OFF
Unit: none
Default value: ON
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Setting
If this parameter is set to ON, the IBLER of a UE is maintained around the target value and
the system throughout is optimized. If this parameter is set to OFF, the IBLER of a UE may
be much higher than the target value and the system throughout cannot be optimized.

Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the weight factor used in the calculation of connection
priorities during downlink scheduling.
Value type: interval
Value range: 0 to 1000
Unit: 0.001
Default value: none
Parameter relationship: This parameter must be set to a value that ensures the following
condition is met:
9 8 7 6 QCI QCI QCI QCI

. In addition, this parameter is valid for
QCI6, QCI7, QCI8, and QCI9 services.
[]

Impact scope: eNodeB
Setting
Recommended value: 1000 for QCI6; 900 for QCI7; 800 for QCI8; 700 for QCI9
The value of this parameter is an important factor in determining the scheduling priority of a
UE and the amount of physical resources that the eNodeB allocates to a UE in a period of
time. Increasing the value of this parameter enhances the scheduling priority of and increases
the amount of RB resources allocated for QCIx services. Decreasing the value of this
parameter lowers the scheduling priority of and reduces the amount of RB resources allocated
for QCIx services.

Unit: ms
[]

Default value: 640
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: eNodeB
Setting
If this parameter is set too large, the UE must wait a long period of time to report event A3 to
the eNodeB after detecting event A3. If this parameter is set too small, the UE may report
event A3 immediately after detecting event A3. In this case, the UE location in a cell cannot
be updated in a timely manner, the ICIC effect is compromised, and the cell capacity and

12min, 30min, 60min
Unit: ms
Default value: 5120
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: eNodeB
Setting
If this parameter is set to a large value, the CEU reports event A3 to the eNodeB in a less
frequent manner and the UE location is not updated efficiently. As a result, the average CEU
throughput decreases. If this parameter is set to a small value, the CEU may frequently report
event A3 to the eNodeB, using more band resources.

Default value: OFF
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: eNodeB
Scenario-based parameter: no

Recommended value: OFF
A blind handover is triggered when there is not enough time for GAP measurement. If this
parameter is set to ON, a UE skips GAP measurement and selects the cell with the highest
priority from the neighboring cell list. However, the handover success rate cannot be
guaranteed. If this parameter is set to OFF, a UE can be handed over only after the eNodeB
receives the measurement report from the UE and determines that the condition for a
handover is met.
Parameter adjustment scenario: Set this parameter to ON when there is not enough time for
GAP measurement and no requirement for the handover success rate.
Impact of parameter setting on network performance: If this parameter is set to ON,
handovers are performed in a timely manner, but the handover success rate may be

This parameter applies only to handovers between inter-frequency co-coverage cells when
one frequency is preferred for carrying services of UEs handed over from low-priority
frequencies.
If this parameter is set to ON, an inter-frequency handover based on frequency priorities will
be triggered even when the signal quality of the serving cell is good. If this parameter is set to
OFF, inter-frequency handovers based on frequency priorities are disabled.
Impact of parameter setting on network performance: If this parameter is set to ON, a UE is

Impact scope: cell
Scenario-based parameter: no
Setting
Recommended value: ON
If this parameter is set to ON, the handover based on the frequency priority is blind. If this
parameter is set to OFF, the handover based on the frequency priority requires GAP
measurement.
A blind handover is triggered when there is not enough time for GAP measurement. If this
parameter is set to ON, a UE skips GAP measurement and selects the cell with the highest
priority from the neighboring cell list. However, the handover success rate cannot be
guaranteed. If this parameter is set to OFF, a UE can be handed over only after the eNodeB
receives the measurement report from the UE and determines that the condition for a
handover is met.
[]

Set this parameter to ON if fast handover is required. In addition, set a high threshold for
event A1 to guarantee the handover success rate. This reduces the number of UEs to be
handed over to high priority cells and increases the probability for low priority cells to be
heavily loaded.

5.1.2.2 IntraRATHoRprtAmount (Measurement report amount)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the number of times that the UE sends the periodic
measurement report to the eNodeB after an intra-frequency or inter-frequency handover is
triggered. It is used to ensure that the eNodeB receives the measurement report and handovers
are not affected by internal processing failures. For details, see 3GPP TS 36.331.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: r1(1), r2(2), r4(4), r8(8), r16(16), r32(32), r64(64),
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: infinity(infinity)
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: eNodeB
Scenario-based parameter: no
Setting
Recommended value: infinity(infinity)
According to the handover algorithm, if a handover is triggered by event A3 or event A4, the
eNodeB sends a handover request to the target cell to apply for resources. If the handover fails,
the UE sends another handover request to the eNodeB after the report interval of the related
event. If periodic event reporting is enabled, a UE sends another handover request after being
denied due to full load on the target cell. Increasing the value of this parameter increases the
number of times that a UE can initiate a handover and increases the probability for the UE to
be handed over to another cell. If this parameter is set to infinity, the number of times that a
UE sends the periodic measurement report to the eNodeB is unlimited.
Parameter adjustment scenario: If the quality of air interfaces is good enough, or if the UE
does not need to perform handover retries, decrease the value of this parameter.
Impact of parameter setting on network performance: Increasing the value of this parameter
increases the handover success rate. However, if this parameter is set too large, a lot of
signaling messages are generated, wasting air interface resources. Decreasing the value of this
parameter reduces the times that a UE initiates handovers. In this case, a UE may stay at the
cell edge all the time and the QoS cannot be satisfied.

Unit: ms/min
Default value: 240ms(240 ms)
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: eNodeB
Scenario-based parameter: no
Setting
Recommended value: 240ms(240 ms)
Delay for signaling message transmission and processing exists. Therefore, if this parameter
is set too small, the UE may not obtain the handover result before sending another periodic
measurement report and air interface overhead increases; if this parameter is set too large, the
delay for handover retry is long and the handover success rate may be compromised.
Parameter adjustment scenario: Increase the value of this parameter if a longer interval for
sending periodic measurement reports is required. Decrease the value of this parameter if a
shorter interval for sending periodic measurement reports is required.

an intra-frequency handover. The quantity can be RSRP or RSRQ. For details, see 3GPP TS
36.331.
Value type: enumeration
Value range: RSRP(for EUTRAN only), RSRQ(for EUTRAN only)
Adjustment step: N/A
Unit: none
Default value: RSRP(for EUTRAN only)
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: eNodeB
Scenario-based parameter: no
[]

Setting
Recommended value: RSRP(for EUTRAN only)
The measurement result based on the RSRP does not dramatically fluctuate with the cell load.
The measurement result based on the RSRQ dramatically fluctuates with the cell load, but
reflects the real-time signal quality of the serving cell.
If this parameter is set to RSRP, the number of unnecessary handovers triggered due to
unstable measurement results reduces.

Setting
Recommended value: dB0(0dB)
This parameter is provided in 3GPP TS 36.331.
Event A3 trigger condition: Mn + Ofn + Ocn Hys > Ms + Ofs + Ocs + Off
Ofs and Ofn are the offsets of serving cell and the neighboring cell, respectively. They are set
to determine the frequency to which a UE is preferentially handed over, and they are used to
evaluate the entering condition and the leaving condition of event A3. Increasing the value of
this parameter enhances the frequency priority.
In an intra-frequency handover, Ofs equals to Ofn.
[]

The eNodeB does not send measurement control information to a UE if the measurement
offset of an intra-frequency cell that served by another eNodeB is 0. However, the
neighboring relationship remains unchanged.
Impact of parameter setting on network performance: Increasing the value of this parameter
enhances the frequency priority. If Ofs is large, the serving cell priority is high, and the event
A3 trigger condition is hard to be met. Therefore, handovers are delayed. If Ofn is large, the
event A3 trigger condition is easy to be met. Therefore, unnecessary handovers may be
performed.

5.1.3.2.1 IntraFreqHoA3Hyst (Intrafreq handover hysteresis)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the hysteresis for an intra-frequency handover. This
parameter is used to reduce ping-pong handovers caused by RSRP fluctuation. For details, see
3GPP TS 36.331.
Value type: integer
Value range: 0 to 30

Default value: 2
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Scenario-based parameter: no
Setting
Recommended value: 2
Event A3 trigger condition: Mn + Ofn + Ocn Hys > Ms + Ofs + Ocs + Off
Mn is the measurement result of the neighboring cell. Ofn is the frequency-specific offset of
the neighboring cell frequency. Ocn is the cell-specific offset of the neighboring cell. Ofs is
the frequency-specific offset of the serving cell frequency. Ocs is the cell-specific offset of the
serving cell. Off is the offset for this event. Hys is the hysteresis for this event.
Increasing the value of this parameter for a cell with a large fading variance reduces the
number of unnecessary handovers. Decreasing the value of this parameter ensures that
handovers are performed in a timely manner.
[]

Impact of parameter setting on network performance: Increasing Hys reduces the number of
times that event A3 is triggered and delays handovers. Therefore, user experience is affected.
However, reducing Hys increases the number of times that event A3 is triggered, which may
lead to unnecessary handovers and ping-pong handovers.

5.1.3.2.3 IntraFreqHoA3TimeToTrig (Intrafreq handover time to trigger)
Description
Meaning: This parameter indicates the delay for intra-frequency handovers. When the event
A3 trigger condition is met, the UE waits a period of time before reporting event A3 to the
eNodeB and, during this period, the formula of event A3 stays true. In this case, both the
number of unnecessary handovers and the number of average handovers decreases.

Unit: ms
Default value: 320ms(320 ms)
Parameter relationship: none
Impact scope: cell
Scenario-based parameter: no
Setting
Recommended value: 320ms(320 ms)
This parameter is provided in 3GPP TS 36.331.
Parameter adjustment scenario: If UEs in a cell move at a high speed, you are advised to set
this parameter to a small value, because handover delay may increase the call drop rate. If
UEs in a cell move at a low speed, you can increase the value of this parameter to prevent
ping-pong handovers and unnecessary handovers.
Impact of parameter setting on network performance: Increasing the value of this parameter
reduces the number of handovers, but may increase the call drop rate. This parameter has an
impact on the network only when its value is equal to or greater than 200 ms, because 3GPP
protocols specify that the measurement result on the physical layer is updated every 200 ms.
