3.2.2 Modified Features


3.2.2.1 TCH-related Counter Optimization for Users with
Specific Priorities

Description
This feature optimizes counters related to traffic channels (TCHs) for users with specific
priorities. The optimization includes the following aspects:
The measurement points for certain counters are modified. After the modification, these
counters are no longer measured in the handover procedure, thereby helping customers
clearly learn the initial access success rate for users with a specific priority in a cell.
Reserved counters are used to measure the number of successful TCH assignments for
users with a specific priority.

Implementation
The measurement points for the following counters have been modified:
A0331B: Number of TCH Occupation Requests for Priority 1 User
A0331A: Number of Successful TCH Occupation for Priority 1 User
A0301G: Number of TCH Occupation Requests for Priority 2 User

Release Notes V100R016C00SPC620

A0331F: Number of Successful TCH Occupation for Priority 2 User


Before the modification, the BSC measures these counters in both assignment and handover
procedures.
After the modification, the BSC measures these counters in the assignment procedure but
does not measure them in the handover procedure. This way, the counters indicate the
numbers of TCH requests and successful TCH assignments for users with a specific priority in
the assignment procedure.
The following reserved counters are now used to measure the number of successful TCH
assignments for users with a specific priority:
Reserved counter 14 for cell
This counter represents "Number of Successful TCH Assignments for Priority 1 User
(Excluding Handover)", which provides the number of successful TCH assignments
for priority 1 users in the assignment procedure for call setup.
Reserved counter 15 for cell
This counter represents "Number of Successful TCH Assignments for Priority 2 User
(Excluding Handover)", which provides the number of successful TCH assignments
for priority 2 users in the assignment procedure for call setup.
The following counter relationships are adopted:
A0331B: Number of TCH Occupation Requests for Priority
1 User Number of Successful TCH Assignments for
Priority 1 User (Excluding Handover) A0331A: Number of
Successful TCH Occupation for Priority 1 User
A0301G: Number of TCH Occupation Requests for Priority 2
User Number of Successful TCH Assignments for Priority
2 User (Excluding Handover) A0331F: Number of
Successful TCH Occupation for Priority 2 User

3.2.2.2 CCCH Flow Control Parameter Optimization

Description
This feature uses certain bits of reserved parameters for the CCCH flow control function. This
feature helps resolve CCCH congestion caused by a large number of access requests when
traffic is heavy and is used in emergency handling.
This feature includes the following solutions:
Solution 1: Before this optimization, the BSC performs flow control based on the paging
message arrival rate, and the maximum of paging messages that can be processed by a
CPUS is fixed to 6000. After this optimization, the maximum of paging messages that
can be processed by a CPUS can be configured using a parameter.
Solution 2: The BSC accurately controls the number of MSs accessing a cell with an
excessively large number of accesses based on the settings of parameters related to the
random access message arrival rate at the cell level.

Implementation
Solution 1: Configure the paging message arrival rate at the subsystem level.
The BSC monitors the number of CS paging messages in real time. If the number of
CS paging messages received by the BSC exceeds the maximum number of CS
paging messages that can be processed by a CPUS per second within 1s,the BSC
discards subsequent CS paging messages during this period. If the Paging Message
Classifying Allowed parameter in the SET BSCFCPARA command is set to 2 and
the number of paging messages exceeds 80% of the maximum number of CS paging
messages that can be processed by a CPUS per second, the BSC discards subsequent
secondary paging messages during this period.
Bits 15 to 20 of the BSC CS Reserved Parameter 1 parameter in the SET
GRSVPARA command specifies the maximum number of CS paging messages that
can be processed by a CPUS per second. When bits 15 to 20 is set to 63, the
maximum number of CS paging messages that can be processed by a CPUS per
second is 6000. When bits 15 to 20 is set to a value ranging from 1 to 60, the
maximum number of CS paging messages that can be processed by a CPUS per
second is equal to the value of bits 15 to 20 multiplied by 100. When bits 15 to 20 is
set to a value less than 1 or greater than 60, the maximum number of CS paging
messages that can be processed by a CPUS per second is 6000. The default GUI
value of bits 15 to 20 is 63.
The BSC monitors the number of PS paging messages in real time. If the number of
PS paging messages received by the BSC exceeds the maximum number of PS
paging messages that can be processed by a CPUS per second within 1s,the BSC
discards subsequent PS paging messages during this period.
Bits 7 to 12 of the BSC PS Reserved Parameter 1 parameter in the SET
GRSVPARA command specifies the maximum number of PS paging messages that
can be processed by a CPUS per second. When bits 7 to 12 is set to 0, the maximum
number of PS paging messages that can be processed by a CPUS per second is 6000.
When bits 7 to 12 is set to a value ranging from 1 to 60, the maximum number of PS
paging messages that can be processed by a CPUS per second is equal to the value of
bits 7 to 12 multiplied by 100. When bits 7 to 12 is set to a value greater than 60, the
maximum number of PS paging messages that can be processed by a CPUS per
second is 6000. The default GUI value of bits 7 to 12 is 0.
Solution 2: Configure the random access request message arrival rate at the cell level.

The BSC monitors the number of random CS access requests in real time.
If the number of random access requests with the access cause location update
received by a cell exceeds the maximum number of location update request messages
that can be processed by the cell per second within 1s, the BSC discards subsequent
random access requests with the access cause location update during this period. This
function is controlled by a parameter and is disabled by default.
Bits 12 to 15 of the Cell CS Reserved Parameter 1 parameter in the SET
GCELLRSVPARA command specifies the maximum number of location update
request messages that can be processed by a cell per second. When bits 12 to 15 is set
to 15, the flow control based on the location update request message arrival rate at the
cell level is not triggered. When bits 12 to 15 is set to a value ranging from 1 to 14,
the maximum number of location update request messages that can be processed by a
cell per second is equal to the value of bits 12 to 15 multiplied by 10. When bits 12 to
15 is set to 0, the maximum number of location update request messages that can be
processed by a cell per second is 150. The default GUI value of bits 12 to 15 is 15.
If the number of call access requests received by a cell exceeds the maximum number
of CS channel request messages that can be processed by the cell per second within
1s, the BSC discards subsequent call access requests during this period. This function
is controlled by a parameter and is disabled by default.
Bits 0 to 4 of the Cell CS Reserved Parameter 2 parameter in the SET
GCELLRSVPARA command specifies the maximum number of CS channel request
messages that can be processed by a cell per second. When bits 0 to 4 is set to 31, the
flow control based on the CS channel request message arrival rate at the cell level is
not triggered. When bits 0 to 4 is set to a value ranging from 1 to 30, the maximum
number of CS channel request messages that can be processed by a cell per second is
equal to the value of bits 0 to 4 multiplied by 10. When bits 0 to 4 is set to a value
less than 1, the flow control based on the CS channel request message arrival rate at
the cell level is not triggered. The default GUI value of bits 0 to 4 is 31.
The BSC monitors the number of random PS access requests in real time.
If the number of random PS access requests for calls received by a cell exceeds the
maximum number of PS channel request messages that can be processed by the cell
per second within 1s, the BSC discards subsequent random PS access requests during
this period. This function is controlled by a parameter and is disabled by default.
Bits 4 to 9 of the Cell PS Reserved Parameter 1 parameter in the SET
GCELLRSVPARA command specifies the maximum number of PS channel request
messages that can be processed by a cell per second. When bits 4 to 9 is set to 0, the
flow control based on the PS channel request message arrival rate at the cell level is
not triggered. When bits 4 to 9 is set to a value ranging from 1 to 60, the maximum
number of PS channel request messages that can be processed by a cell per second is
equal to the value of bits 4 to 9 multiplied by 10. When bits 4 to 9 is set to a value
greater than 60, the flow control based on the PS channel request message arrival rate
at the cell level is not triggered. The default GUI value of bits 4 to 9 is 0.

3.3.2 Major
3.3.2.1 The measured call setup duration is incorrect after
an MS is handed over to another BSC and makes a call to a
third MS.
Trouble iCare: 2206822
Ticket DTS: DTS2014070100182
Number

Descriptio Condition:
n An MS (MS 1) makes a call to another MS (MS 2) under a BSC (BSC
1). The call is processed properly.
MS 1 is handed over to another BSC (BSC 2) and makes a call to a third
MS (MS 3) under BSC 2. MS 1 sends the HOLD message to the MSC
to hold the call with MS 2.
Symptom: The measured values of the AA033: Mean Duration of Call
Establishment and AA3251: Average Call Setup Duration counters
measured by BSC 2 are greater than the actual values.
Impact: The measured values of the preceding counters cannot reflect the
actual call setup duration.
Severity Major

Root In the preceding scenario, BSC 2 measures the call setup duration for MS
Cause 1 from the time BSC 2 receives the incoming BSC handover request from
the MSC to the time BSC 2 receives the first ALTERTING message from
MS 1.
After MS 1 is handed over to BSC 2 and the MS 1-to-MS 2 call is
maintained for a while, MS 1 makes the call to MS 3. However, BSC 2
includes the MS 1-to-MS 3 call setup duration, which includes the MS 1-
to-MS 2 call duration under BSC 2, in the AA033 and AA3251 counters.
As a result, the values of the AA033 and AA3251 counters measured for
MS 1 are greater than the actual values.
Solution BSC 2 no longer includes the MS 1-to-MS 3 call setup duration in the
AA033 and AA3251 counters in the preceding scenario.
Solution After this solution is used, the values of the following counters decrease:
Impact AA033: Mean Duration of Call Establishment

Number DTS: DTS2014071603826

Description Condition: The source cell ID changes during an incoming RNC-to-


BSC handover. As a result, the source cell ID in the handover
information area of CHRs recorded by the BSC is different from that in
the interworking rule used by the Nastar for incoming RNC-to-BSC
handovers.
Symptom: Incoming RNC-to-BSC handovers are displayed as
incoming inter-BSC handovers on the Nastar.
Impact: The incoming BSC handovers displayed on the Nastar cannot
reflect actual handover types.
Severity Major
Root Cause According to the original interworking rule between the BSC and
Nastar, if the source cell ID in the handover information area of CHRs
is 5048, the handover type displayed on the Nastar is incoming RNC-
to-BSC handover. As the specifications of external neighboring cells
change on the BSC side, the interworking rule on the BSC side
becomes inconsistent with that on the Nastar side. As a result, incoming
RNC-to-BSC handovers are displayed as incoming inter-BSC
handovers on the Nastar.
Solution The BSC and Nastar now use a new interworking rule in the preceding
scenario. Specifically, both the BSC and Nastar set the source cell ID in
the handover information area of CHRs for an incoming RNC-to-BSC
handover to 50000. This solution requires support from iManager
Nastar V600R014C00SPC230 or later.

There are dynamic PDCHs in the cell.


Symptom: In the DTM procedure, the BSC allocates TCHs to the MS
using the assignment procedure.
Impact: DTM services fail.
Severity Major
Root In the preceding scenario, the BSC allocates TCHs to the MS using the
Cause assignment procedure and dynamically converts channels adjacent to the
TCHs into PDCHs. These PDCHs will be used in next DTM procedure.
However, the BSC does not dynamically convert PDCHs into TCHs in the
current DTM procedure. As a result, DTM congestion occurs.
Solution The BSC now dynamically converts PDCHs into TCHs for CS services in
the current DTM procedure in the preceding scenario.
SW17 of the Cell CS Reserved Switch Parameter 0 parameter in the SET
GCELLRSVPARA command controls whether to enable this solution. By
default, this feature is disabled (default value: 0) for new networks, but is
enabled (default value: 1) after upgrades.
Solution After this solution is used, the values of the following counters decrease:

3.3.2.4 The BSC cannot allocate TCH channels on BCCH-


incompatible frequency bands to MSs during immediate
assignment when the BSC supports TCHs that function as
signaling channels.
Trouble iCare: 2989815
Ticket DTS: DTS2014081203301
Number

Descripti Condition:
on The BSC supports TCHs that function as signaling channels. For
example, the TCH Immediate Assignment parameter in the SET
GCELLBASICPARA command is set to YES(Yes).
All idle channels in a cell are TCHs on BCCH-incompatible frequency
bands.
Symptom: The BSC fails to allocate TCH channels to MSs during
immediate assignment.
Impact: Calls fail to access the cell.
Severity Major
Root In the preceding scenario, the BSC cannot obtain the frequency band
Cause capability of MSs. As a result, the BSC fails to allocate channels to MSs.
For example, if the frequency of the BCCH TRX is 1 and that of non-
BCCH TRXs is 0, when the BCCH TRX participates in baseband
frequency hopping, the channel on timeslot 0 on the BCCH TRX is on P
band and the other channels are on E band. In this situation, the BSC
considers that the MS only supports P band. As a result, the channel
allocation fails.
Solution The BSC now uses the following channel allocation policy in the preceding
scenario:
The BSC can allocate idle TCHs on BCCH-incompatible frequency bands
to MSs. This policy is controlled by SW15 of the Cell CS Reserved
Switch Parameter 0 parameter in the SET GCELLRSVPARA command.
By default, this policy is disabled (default value: 0) for both new networks
and upgrade scenarios.
Solution After this solution is used:
Impact When SW15 of the Cell CS Reserved Switch Parameter 0 parameter in
the SET GCELLRSVPARAcommand is set to 1:
The value of the K3023: Successful TCH Seizures (Signaling Channel)
counter increases.
The value of the K3021: Failed TCH Seizures due to Busy TCH
(Signaling Channel) counter decreases.
If MSs supporting only BCCH-compatible frequency bands exist in a cell,
the value of the CA304: Call Setup Indications Timed Out counter
increases.

3.3.2.5 The value of the K3043 counter is greater than 100%


when the BSC processes buffered downlink DTM service
requests after a DTM assignment fails.
Trouble iCare: 2869445
Ticket DTS: DTS2014080603681
Number

Description Condition: The BSC processes buffered downlink DTM service


requests after a DTM assignment fails.
Symptom: The value of the K3043: TCH Seizure Success Rate
counter is greater than 100%.
Impact: The measured value of the K3043 counter is incorrect. It is
inconvenient for users to monitor network performance.
Severity Major
Root Cause After a DTM assignment fails, if downlink DTM service requests are
buffered, the BSC incorrectly processes these DTM services as
common calls. As a result, the BSC sends the Handover Command
messages to MSs. As these Handover Command messages have no
corresponding handover requests, the value of the K3043: TCH
Seizure Success Rate counter is greater than 100%.
Solution After a DTM assignment fails, the BSC now discards the buffered
downlink DTM service requests if any.
Solution After this solution is used, the values of the following counters
Impact decrease:
K3043: TCH Seizure Success Rate

Description Condition: The BCCH TRX of a cell works on P band and


participates in frequency hopping. The MA group includes
frequencies on P and E bands.
Symptom: The values of the following counters increase:
A9203: Number of Failed Uplink EGPRS TBF Establishments due
to No Channel
A9003: Number of Failed Uplink GPRS TBF Establishments due to
No Channel
Impact: The BSC rejects PS service requests of MSs in the cell. As a
result, MSs fail to access the cell.
Severity Major
Root Cause The frequency band of a TRX is the highest frequency band among
all frequency bands supported by MA groups on all timeslots of the
TRX.
The frequency band of an MA group is the highest frequency band
among all frequency bands where frequencies in the MA group
belong to.
If frequencies in an MA group belong to P and E bands, the frequency
band of the MA group is E band. If the frequency band of the BCCH
TRX is P band, the TRX for the MA group is incompatible with the
BCCH TRX (referred to as a BCCH-incompatible TRX).
When the BSC does not obtain the multislot capability of an MS, the
BSC can only select channels on BCCH-compatible TRXs for the
MS. As the BCCH TRX participates in frequency hopping and the
MA group includes frequencies on P and E bands, the BSC cannot
find any BCCH-compatible TRXs and therefore it rejects PS service
requests of the MS.
Solution The BSC can now select channels on both BCCH-compatible TRXs
and BCCH-incompatible TRXs in a cell in the preceding scenario.
Bit 30 of the Cell Reserved Parameter 4 parameter in the SET
GCELLPRIVATEOPTPARA command controls whether to enable
this solution. When bit 30 is set to 1, this solution is enabled. When
bit 30 is set to 0, this solution is disabled. By default, this solution is
disabled (default value: 0) for both new networks and upgrade
scenarios.
To set bit 30 to 1, run the following command:
SET GCELLPRIVATEOPTPARA: IDTYPE=BYID, CELLID=0,
CellPSReservePara4=1073741824;
where the value 1073741824 (0100 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
0000 in binary) indicates that bit 30 is set to 1.
Set Cell Reserved Parameter 4 based on the current parameter
setting. For example, if the current value of Cell Reserved
Parameter 4 is 1 (0000 0000 0000 0001 in binary), set this parameter
to 1073741825 (0100 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0001 in
binary) with bit 30 set to 1.

is always 64 kbit/s.
Trouble DTS: DTS2014072505780
Ticket
Number

Description Condition: The BTS uses TDM transmission. The Abis interface board
is POUc.
Symptom: The loading speed of the BTS software version is always 64
kbit/s.
Impact: The loading speed of the BTS software version is low.
Severity Minor
Root Cause During the loading of the BTS software version in the preceding
scenario, the service module sends a message to the Abis interface
board to activate the DML. However, the CPU ID contained in the
message is incorrect. As a result, the DML cannot be activated properly.
In this situation, the BTS software version can only be loaded over the
OML. Therefore, the loading speed is always 64 kbit/s.
Solution The service module now fills the correct CPU ID in the message to be
sent to the Abis interface board to ensure that the DML can be activated
properly.

Off Cell parameter set to ENABLE(Enable).;


The eGBTS deployment test, radio frequency (RF) loopback, or
frequency scanning is performed on the eGBTS side. In this
situation, the eGBTS cannot disable the TRX.
Symptom: The cell PA on the BSC side is disabled, causing call access
failures. The TRX PA on the eGBTS side is enabled.
Impact: The value of the RA303G: Success Rate of Immediate
Assignments counter decreases.
Severity Suggestion
Root Cause In the preceding scenario, the BSC sends a TRX SERVICE CONTROL
message to the eGBTS, instructing the eGBTS to disable the TRX. The
eGBTS responds the TRX SERVICE CONTROL message with another
TRX SERVICE CONTROL message. Upon receiving the TRX
SERVICE CONTROL message from the eGBTS, the BSC sets the cell
PA status to power-off. As the TRX PA on the eGBTS side is still
enabled in the preceding scenario, call access attempts are allowed.
However, the cell PA is disabled on the BSC side. As a result, the BSC
rejects the immediate assignment request, causing call access failures.
Solution The BSC no longer sets the cell PA status to power-off upon receiving
the TRX SERVICE CONTROL message from the eGBTS. Instead, the
BSC now updates the cell PA status according to the BCCH TRX PA
status reported by the eGBTS. This ensures that the cell PA status on
the BSC is consistent with the TRX PA status on the eGBTS side.

3.3.4.5 MSs are inaccurately located by using the Gb-based


Location Service (Cell ID+TA) function.
Trouble DTS: DTS2014070900125
Ticket
Number

Description Condition: During location services using the Gb-based Location


Service (Cell ID+TA) function, the timing advance (TA) value based on
which the BSC calculates the MS location has a deviation of 0.5.
Symptom: The calculated MS location is not the actual MS location.
Impact: The location result cannot reflect the actual MS location,
affecting user experience.
Severity Suggestion
Root Cause When calculating the MS location based on the TA value reported by
the BTS, the BSC considers that the TA value has been rounded down.
For example, if the received TA value is 0, the BSC considers that the
measured TA value is within the range of [0,1). However, the BTS
rounds off the measured TA value before reporting it to the BSC. For
example, if the measured TA value is within the range of [0,0.5), the
BTS reports the TA value 0. Therefore, the TA value based on which the
BSC calculates the MS location has a deviation of 0.5.
Solution The BSC now subtracts 0.5 from the TA value reported by the BTS
before calculating the MS location in the preceding scenario.

Releases due to N3105 Overflow" and "A9106: Number of Downlink
GPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due to N3105 Overflow" counters,
respectively.
Impact: The measured values of the preceding counters are
inconsistent with the actual values. It is inconvenient for users to
observe network performance.
Severity Suggestion
Root Cause Due to a BSC internal processing error, the BSC uses a random value
as the cause value for abnormal downlink TBF release in the
preceding scenarios. As a result, the measured values of the preceding
counters are occasionally incorrect.
Solution The BSC internal processing error has been rectified. The BSC now
uses the correct cause value for abnormal downlink TBF release
when measuring the preceding counters. This way, the measured
values of these counters are correct.
Solution After this solution is used:
Impact In scenario 1, the values of the following counters increase:
A9306: Number of Downlink EGPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due

Description Condition: Packet switched (PS) traffic volumes are unbalanced


among cells.
Symptom: The value of the R9346: Number of Dynamic PDCH
Requests Without Application Attempts Because the Number of
Activated PDCHs Reaches Board Specification counter increases.
Impact: Activated PDCHs in PS cells are unevenly distributed on
GUPPSs, affecting PS service performance.

Root Cause The BSC does not consider the number of activated PDCHs in each PS
cell when allocating PS cells to GUPPSs. As a result, activated PDCHs
in PS cells are unevenly distributed on GUPPSs when PS traffic
volumes are unbalanced among these cells.
Solution Solution 1: The BSC balances PS cells on GUPPSs based on the
number of activated PDCHs on the GUPPSs at the specified time.

networks and upgrade scenarios.


When this solution is enabled, the BSC selects the GUPPSs that
need to be adjusted based on the value of bits 7 to 13 and reallocates
the PS cells between each pair of the GUPPS with the heaviest load
and the GUPPS with the lightest load. When bits 7 to 13 is not set to
0, the configurations of the Dynamic Balanced Cell Distribution
Switch and Dynamic Balanced Cell Distribution Optimization
parameters do not take effect.
Bits 14 to 24 of the BSC Reserved Parameter 4 parameter in the
SET BSCPSSOFTPARA command specifies the absolute time
when the BSC implements the preceding adjustment. Bits 20 to 24
indicates hour, and bits 14 to 19 indicates minute. When bits 20 to
24 is set to 4 and bits 14 to 19 is set to 30, the BSC implements the
preceding adjustment at 04:30:00 every day. The absolute time
ranges from 00:01 to 23:59. When bits 14 to 24 is set to 0, the BSC
implements the preceding adjustment at 02:22:22 by default.
Solution 2: The BSC performs a penalty on a cell where PDCH
application fails due to restrictions of GUPPS specifications to
decrease the number of PDCH requests in the cell. Within the
penalty time, the BSC does not attempt to convert TCHs into
PDCHs in the cell.
Bits 25 to 30 of the BSC Reserved Parameter 4 parameter in the
SET BSCPSSOFTPARA command specifies the penalty time
(unit: s). The value of bits 25 to 30 ranges from 3 (default value) to
60.When bits 25 to 30 is set to a value less than 3 or greater than 60,
the penalty time is 3s.
To set bits 25 to 30 to 31 (0000 0000 0001 1111 in binary), run the
following command:
SET BSCPSSOFTPARA: BSCPSReservePara4=1040187392;
where the value 1040187392 (0011 1110 0000 0000 0000 0000
0000 0000 in binary) indicates the value of bits 25 to 30 is 31.
Set BSC Reserved Parameter 4 based on the current parameter
setting. For example, if the current value of BSC Reserved
Parameter 4 is 1 (0000 0000 0000 0001 in binary), set this
parameter to 1040187393 (0011 1110 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
0001 in binary) with bits 25 to 30 set to 31.
Solution 3: The BSC performs a penalty on an IP-based cell where
PDCH application fails due to restrictions of GUPPS specifications.
Within the penalty time, the BSC does not attempt to convert TCHs
into PDCHs in the cell.
SW23 of the BSC PS Reserved Switch Parameter 0 parameter in
the SET GRSVPARA command controls whether to enable this
solution.
By default, this solution is disabled (default value: 0) for both new
networks and upgrade scenarios.
When this solution is enabled, the penalty time is the same as that
used in solution 2.
Solution After solution 1 is used, PS cells will be more evenly distributed.

The values of the following counters increase or remain unchanged:
AR9381: Average Number of Available EGPRS PDCHs
AR9383: Average Number of Available GPRS PDCHs
After solution 2 is used, a larger value of bits 25 to 30 indicates smaller
values of the R9341: Number of TCH to PDTCH Conversion Attempts

Ticket
Number

Description Condition: A user uses the batch configuration function of the Web
LMT. The file name of an uploaded file or a file that has been
decrypted contains Chinese characters.
Symptom: The Web LMT displays a message "Internal error".
Impact: The batch configuration function fails.
Severity Major

Root Cause The Web LMT and interconnected NE adopt inconsistent character
encoding schemes. Specifically, if the file name of an uploaded file
contains Chinese characters in batch configuration, the Web LMT
notifies the interconnected NE of the file name in UTF-8, whereas the
interconnected NE reads the file name in GB2312.
Solution In batch configuration, the Web LMT now converts the file name of
an uploaded file to codes supported by the language in use before
notifying the interconnected NE.

been running for an excessively long period of time.
Trouble iCare: 3292252
Ticket DTS: DTS2014082111156
Number

Description Condition:
An SCU board in a subrack (subrack A) has been running for more
than 497 days.
The total number of MPS and EPSs exceeds 2.
SCU boards in a subrack (subrack B) that is not directly connected
to subrack A reset.
Symptom: After the SCU boards in subrack B restart, multicast
configuration of subrack A cannot be added to the SCU boards in
subrack B.
Impact: Inter-subrack services are interrupted.
Severity Major
Root Cause After arithmetic overflow occurs on the global variable (TICK value)
recording the running period of the SCU board subrack A, if the SCU
boards in subrack B are switched over, the SCU board in subrack A
incorrectly performs calculation between the current TICK value and
the TICK value obtained during the previous multicast configuration.
In this situation, the conditions for sending inter-subrack multicast
configuration messages are not meet. As a result, multicast
configuration of subrack A cannot be added to the SCU boards
subrack B.
Solution The SCU boards now correctly perform calculation between the
current TICK value and the TICK value obtained during the previous
multicast configuration in the preceding scenario. This ensures that
the calculated result is correct when arithmetic overflow occurs on the
TICK value.

6.2.2.3 Enhanced Anti-Attack Protection for Fragmented


Packets Received by the Interface Board

Description
The protection against fragmented packet attack has been optimized for interface boards
POUc/FG2c/FG2d/GOUc/GOUd/GOUe to prevent the impact of fragmented packet attack on
services. It is recommended that this feature be enabled in scenarios where there are a great
number of fragmented packets on the transmission network.

Implementation
This feature implements protection against fragmented packet attack by limiting the number
of fragmented packets received by the preceding interface boards 256. If the number of
fragmented packets required for assembling a complete packet is greater than 256, the packet
assembly fails and these fragmented packets are discarded.
BIT0 under the RSVDSW1 parameter in the SET DEVRSVDPARA command controls
whether to enable the function of limiting the number of fragmented packets received by
interface boards. When this function is enabled, the number of fragmented packets received
by interface boards is limited. When function is disabled, the number of fragmented packets
received by interface boards is not limited. By default, this function is disabled (default value:
1) for both new networks and upgrade scenarios.

Description Condition: The Short Message Downlink Disabled parameter is set


to YES(Yes). A mobile originated (MO) short message service (SMS)
is initiated.
Symptom: The BSC prohibits the MO short messages.
Impact: The MO SMS fails.
Severity Major

Root Cause When the Short Message Downlink Disabled parameter is set to
YES(Yes), upon receiving a CP ACK message from the MSC, the
BSC returns a reject message to the MSC without distinguishing
between MO and mobile terminated (MT) short messages.
Solution When Short Message Downlink Disabled is set to YES(Yes), the
BSC now allows MO short messages to be sent over standalone
dedicated control channels (SDCCHs).

BSC6910 GSM 6 Changes from V100R016C00SPH602 to
Release Notes V100R016C00SPH605

Root Cause In the preceding scenario, the BSC does not check the network support
capability of the MS. As a result, the Channel Release message
contains UMTS FDD frequencies when a call is released.
Solution The BSC now checks the network support capability of an MS before
containing UMTS FDD frequencies in the Channel Release message.
The BSC contains UMTS FDD frequencies in the Channel Release
message only if the BSC determines that the value of the "UMTS FDD
Radio Access Technology Capability" information element (IE) in
Classmark 3 reported by the MS is "UMTS FDD supported".
Solution After this solution is used, a GSM/UMTS MS in GSM-only mode
Impact reselects to a GSM cell in the preceding scenario.

6.3.2.3 The measured values of counters under the


"Incoming Inter-RAT Inter-Cell Handover Measurement per
Cell" and "SRVCC Handover Measurement per Cell"
measurement units are incorrect.
Trouble iCare: 3087737
Ticket DTS: DTS2014061902692
Number

Description Condition: The source cell ID type (identified by the cell-


identification-discriminator IE) in the handover request message for an
incoming UMTS-to-GSM inter-cell handover is service area identifier
(SAI). The MCC and MNC in the SAI are consistent with those for
external neighboring LTE cells configured on the BSC side.
Symptom: The BSC includes the incoming UMTS-to-GSM inter-cell
handovers in the "SRVCC Handover Measurement per Cell"
measurement unit rather than the "Incoming Inter-RAT Inter-Cell
Handover Measurement per Cell" measurement unit.
Impact: Counter measurements are incorrect and therefore
inaccurately reflect network performance.
Severity Major

Root Cause Both UMTS-to-GSM and LTE-to-GSM inter-cell handover requests


contain SAI. If the MCC and MNC for neighboring UMTS cells are
consistent with those for neighboring LTE cells, the BSC
preferentially includes these handovers in the "SRVCC Handover
Measurement per Cell" measurement unit.
Solution The BSC now interprets an incoming BSC handover request as an
SRVCC handover request when all of the following conditions are
met:
The SRVCC Handover Allowed parameter in the SET
GCELLHOBASIC command is set to YES(Yes).

The source cell ID type in the incoming BSC handover request is


SAI.
The values of lte sai mcc, lte sai mnc, lte sai lac, and lte sai sac for
the source cell carried in the incoming BSC handover request
message are consistent with those configured on the BSC side.
Otherwise, the BSC interprets the incoming BSC handover request as
an incoming UMTS-to-GSM inter-cell handover request.
Solution After this solution is used:
Impact The values of counters in the "Incoming Inter-RAT Inter-Cell
Handover Measurement per Cell" measurement unit increase.
The values of counters in the "SRVCC Handover Measurement per
Cell" measurement unit decrease.

not allowed and the Half Rate Speech (per TRX) and AMR HR
(per TRX) license control items do not coexist.
Trouble iCare: 3047807
Ticket DTS: DTS2014062012257
Number

Description Condition:
The TCH Rate Adjust Allow parameter in the SET GTRXDEV
command is set to NO(No).
The Half Rate Speech (per TRX) and AMR HR (per TRX) license
control items do not coexist, that is, either of the following
conditions is met:
The licensed value of the Half Rate Speech (per TRX) license
control item is not 0, and it is greater than or equal to the usage
value. The licensed value of the AMR HR (per TRX) license
control item is 0, or it is less than the usage value.
The licensed value of the AMR HR (per TRX) license control
item is not 0, and it is greater than or equal to the usage value.
The licensed value of the Half Rate Speech (per TRX) license
control item is 0, or it is less than the usage value.
Symptom: The value of the RM3278: Successful TCH Seizures
(Traffic Channel) (TCHH) counter decreases.
Impact: Half-rate traffic channel (TCHH) allocation fails.
Severity Major

Root Cause In the preceding scenario, the BSC mistakenly determines that TCHHs
can be allocated only when both the Half Rate Speech (per TRX) and
AMR HR (per TRX) license control items are available.
Solution The BSC can now allocate TCHHs to an MS when the Half Rate
Speech (per TRX) or AMR HR (per TRX) license control item is

Description Condition: The Query Frequency Scan function is used on the Web
LMT, and the NE reports more than 2500 entries.
Symptom: The Query Frequency Scan function cannot be performed.
Impact: Frequency scanning results cannot be correctly displayed.
Severity Minor
Root Cause The Web LMT requests for frequency scanning results every 10s, and
the NE reports 1500 or less entries at a time. The Web LMT compares
the newly obtained data with existing data, and then displays the new
entries. When there are more than 2500 entries, the Query Frequency
Scan function cannot be performed.
Solution Extra entries cannot be displayed on the Web LMT, and the earlier
data will be cleared upon each data analysis. Only the latest data is
displayed, 1500 entries for at most 50 frequencies.

6.3.3.2 Synchronization between the controller and the


U2000/CME has not been performed for a long time because
configuration synchronization times out for several times.
Trouble iCare: 2417094
Ticket DTS: DTS2014051906196
Number

Description Condition: When the EXP CFGMML command is being executed, the
command for exporting the data for configuration synchronization on the
U2000/CME is also being executed.
Symptom: Execution of the command for exporting the data for
configuration synchronization on the U2000/CME times out for several
times. As a result, the synchronization between the controller and the
U2000/CME cannot be performed for a long time.
Impact: The controller data is not synchronized to the U2000/CME in a
timely manner.
Severity Minor
Root Cause When the EXP CFGMML command is being executed, the controller
receives the command for exporting the data for configuration
synchronization delivered by the U2000 and CME. Execution of the
EXP CFGMML command is too slow and blocks execution of the
command for exporting the data for configuration synchronization. As a
result, execution of the command for exporting the data for
configuration synchronization times out and a new full synchronization
is triggered. In this situation, the problem persists for a long time.
Solution If one command for exporting data, such as EXP CFGMML and
EXP CFGBCP is being executed, re-execution of the EXP
CFGMML or EXP CFGBCP command will be rejected. If the
command for exporting data for configuration synchronization
delivered by U2000/CME is being executed, re-execution of the EXP
CFGBCP command will be rejected. This implementation does not
take effect if the EXP CFGMML or EXP CFGBCP command is
executed periodically.
If the message carrying the command for exporting the data for
configuration synchronization is in the queue during execution of the
EXP CFGMML or EXP CFGBCP command, configuration data
between the controller and the U2000/CME is synchronized after
execution of the EXP CFGMML or EXP CFGBCP command is
complete or times out.
Solution If one EXP CFGMML command is being executed, execution of the
Impact EXP CFGMML or EXP CFGBCP command will be rejected and
the error message "Please try again later as the EXP CFGMML
command is being executed." is displayed.
If one EXP CFGBCP command is being executed, execution of the
EXP CFGMML or EXP CFGBCP command will be rejected and
the error message "Please try again later as the EXP CFGBCP
command is being executed." is displayed.

BSC database is abnormal. In this case, the BSC grants the minimum
permissions to the local user.
Solution During the authentication of an FTP login of a local user, if information
about the local user fails to be obtained due to database exceptions, the
BSC now stops the login and returns a message indicating the login
failure.
Solution The permissions of local users are not affected even if the BSC database is

Display check reports.


Remind users to rectify risks before the upgrade.

During a U2000-based upgrade of the BSC, the upgrade tool does not support the risk check function.

Implementation
The upgrade tool provides the Risk check option, as shown in the following figure.

If this option is selected:


The Pre-upgrade button changes to the Risk check button.
When uploading the NE software installation package, users also need to upload the
risk check package corresponding to the NE software version.
Before the pre-upgrade, the upgrade tool automatically performs risk check and
generates a check report.
If the check report only includes passed items (green), users can perform subsequent
upgrade operations.
If the check report includes warning items (yellow), the running of the BSC to be
upgraded has potential risks but has no critical impacts on the upgrade. In this
situation, users can perform subsequent upgrade operations.
If the check report includes failed items (red), the running of the BSC to be upgraded
has critical risks and may cause upgrade failures. In this situation, users are not
allowed to perform subsequent upgrade operations. Instead, these risks must be
eliminated before the upgrade.
If this option is deselected, the upgrade tool does not perform risk check before the
upgrade. Instead, it implements the upgrade following the original procedure.

Symptom: EVT-22921 Unconfigured Circuits over A Interface in the
BSC is frequently reported.
Impact: A large number of EVT-22921 is reported on the alarm
console. This does not affect service access.
Severity Major

Root Cause When triggering the BSC local switching restoration procedure for
services in the preceding scenario, the BSC checks whether the circuit
identification code (CIC) used by services has been configured for the
BSC. However, the CIC checked by the BSC is incorrect. As a result,
the BSC considers that the CIC has not been configured and reports
EVT-22921.
Solution The BSC now uses a correct CIC to check whether it is configured in
the preceding scenario.

7.3.2.2 The number of abnormal TBF releases due to DTM


establishments is incorrectly measured.
Trouble DTS: DTS2014051205081
Ticket
Number

Description Condition: In a cell that is enabled with DTM and has DTM-capable
MSs, the BSC performs either of the following operations:
Deactivates the cell and then reactivates it.
Removes the cell and then adds it again.
Symptom:
The values of the following DTM-related counters decrease:
A9242:Number of Uplink EGPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due to DTM
Establishment
A904A:Number of Uplink GPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due to DTM
Establishment
A9347:Number of Downlink EGPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due to

The values of the following TBF call drop rate-related counters
increase:
A9306:Number of Downlink EGPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due to
N3105 Overflow
A9106:Number of Downlink GPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due to
N3105 Overflow
A9206:Number of Uplink EGPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due to

N3103 Overflow (MS No Response)
A9007:Number of Uplink GPRS TBF Abnormal Releases due to N3103
Overflow (MS No Response)
Impact: Network performance cannot be accurately reflected.
Severity Major
Root Cause In a DTM-enabled cell, if an MS initiates CS services while processing
PS services, its TBF will be abnormally released, as described in 3GPP
TS 43.055. In this situation, the BSC counts this abnormal TBF release
in corresponding TBF call drop rate-related counters. To differentiate
such abnormal TBF releases from abnormal TBF releases caused by
poor Um interface quality and accurately reflect the network status, the
BSC is supposed to actively release the ongoing PS services and count
the described abnormal TBF release in corresponding DTM-related
counters.
However, due to an internal interface error, the BSC neither actively

releases the ongoing PS services nor counts that abnormal TBF release
in corresponding DTM-related counters. Instead, the BSC counts that
abnormal TBF release in corresponding TBF call drop rate-related
counters.
Solution In the given situation, the BSC now uses the correct interface to actively
release the current TBF and counts the abnormal TBF release in
corresponding DTM-related counters.
Solution After this solution is used, the values of the preceding DTM-related
Impact counters increase and those of the preceding TBF call drop rate-related
counters decrease.

intermittent transmission interruption over the Gb interface
after an SCU switchover.
Trouble iCare: 2791003
Ticket DTS: DTS2014050502563
Number

Description Condition: After the active and standby SCU boards are switched over,
transmission over the Gb interface carried by an EXOUa board is
interrupted. More than 30s later, the transmission recovers.
Symptom: The Network Service Virtual Link (NSVL) carried on the
EXOUa board becomes faulty. ALM-22044 NSVL Faulty is reported
and cannot be cleared.
Impact: The NSVL on the EXOUa board becomes faulty.
Severity Major
Root Cause After SCU boards are switched over, the Gb resource status on the
EXOUa board is not backed up when the standby SCU board enters the
active state. Therefore, transmission over the Gb interface is interrupted
and resources on the Gb interface are requested again. However, the
requested resources conflict with the resources in use. As a result, the
NSVL becomes faulty.
Solution The Gb resource status on the EXOUa board is now backed up when the
standby SCU board enters the active state. This prevents resource
collision after the SCU board switchover.

although the BTS does not exist.
Trouble DTS: DTS2014051904690
Ticket
Number

Descripti Condition: In BSC6910 V100R016C00SPC100 or V100R016C00SPC200,


on users run the ADD ADJNODE command to add an adjacent node, with the
Adjacent Node Type parameter set to ABIS(Abis Interface), the Index
Type parameter set to BYNAME(By Name), and the BTS Name
parameter set to the name of a BTS that does not exist. Then, the BSC6910
is upgraded from V100R016C00SPC100 or V100R016C00SPC200 to
V100R016C00SPH602.
Symptom: The ADD ADJNODE command is executed successfully, but
no message is displayed to indicate that the BTS does not exist.
Impact: The added adjacent node does not take effect and the
configuration data is redundant.
Severity Minor
Root In BSC6910 V100R016C00, the BTS existence check rule is changed for
Cause the addition of an Abis interface adjacent node. Specifically, the BSC does
not check the BTS existence when an adjacent node is added by BTS name.
Solution During the addition of an Abis interface adjacent node, the BSC now
checks whether a BTS exists according to its name. An Abis interface
adjacent node can now be successfully added by BTS name only when the
BTS exists. This ensures that the Abis interface adjacent node takes effect
after being added.
Solution If there is data of the Abis interface adjacent node where the BTS is not
Impact configured in BSC6910 V100R016C00SPC100 or V100R016C00SPC200,
the upgrade precheck is performed to prompt users to modify or delete the
redundant data during a BSC6910 upgrade to V100R016C00SPH602 or
V100R016C00 patch version.

Description Condition: The standby OMU board is faulty, and therefore the SCU
board detects "Back Layer 2 Table Fault."
Symptom: The standby OMU is isolated from service processing
boards by the SCU. The following alarms are reported on the alarm
console:
ALM-20702 Active and Standby OMU Communication Link Failure
ALM-20720 OMU Board Fault (Slot No.: number of the slot that
accommodates the standby OMU board)
ALM-20228 GE Link Between GE Switching Board and Service
Board Faulty (Peer Board Slot No.: number of the slot that
accommodates the standby OMU board)
ALM-20714 OMU Time Synchronization Abnormity
Impact: The standby OMU board remains faulty and cannot be de-
isolated.
Severity Minor
Root Cause The board uninhibition command UIN BRD is ineffective against an
OMU board. As a result, the standby OMU cannot recover after being
isolated by the SCU board.
Solution The UIN BRD command can now be used to physically uninhibit an
OMU board. If the standby OMU board is isolated by the SCU board,
run the UIN BRD command to physically inhibit the standby OMU
board.

Impact: This problem causes difficulty in executing MML commands on
the U2000.
Severity Minor

Root If the length of the MML command output exceeds 64 KB, the MML
Cause command output is divided into multiple packets shorter than 64 KB
according to the OMU packet parsing mechanism. As a result, the packet
end flag may be unexpectedly inserted into the middle of the MML

display of MML command outputs.
Solution The OMU packet parsing mechanism has been optimized. When the length
of the MML command output exceeds 64 KB, the packet end flag is no
longer inserted into the middle of the MML command output.

7.3.4.1 MSs are inaccurately located by using the BSS-based
Location Service (Cell ID+TA) function.
Trouble iCare: 2904082
Ticket DTS: DTS2014051203666
Number

Description Condition: During location services using the BSS-based Location


Service (Cell ID+TA) function, the timing advance (TA) value based
on which the BSC calculates the MS location has a deviation of 0.5.
Symptom: The calculated MS location is not the actual MS location.
Impact: The location result cannot reflect the actual MS location,
affecting user experience.
Severity Suggestion

Root Cause When calculating the MS location based on the TA value reported by
the BTS, the BSC considers that the TA value has been rounded down.
For example, if the received TA value is 0, the BSC considers that the
measured TA value is within the range of [0,1). However, the BTS
rounds off the measured TA value before reporting it to the BSC. For
example, if the measured TA value is within the range of [0,0.5), the
BTS reports the TA value 0. Therefore, the TA value based on which
the BSC calculates the MS location has a deviation of 0.5.
Solution The BSC now subtracts 0.5 from the TA value reported by the BTS
before calculating the MS location in the preceding scenario.
Solution None

Descripti Condition: The destination signaling point (DSP) status changes from
on Normal to Faulty.
Symptom: Users cannot determine which CN node or adjacent RNC is
faulty based on the alarm parameters in ALM-21521, ALM-21503, and
ALM-21553.
Impact: Users cannot quickly identify the problem cause.
Severity Suggestion

Root When the base station controller report ALM-21521, ALM-21503, or ALM-
Cause 21553, the alarm parameter specifies only the DSP information and does not
specify the information about the CN node or adjacent RNC.
Solution The Additional Information parameter is added to ALM-21521, ALM-
21503, and ALM-21553. The following table lists the Additional
Information parameters for different destination signaling point (DSP)
types.
If the DSP type is A, the value of the additional information parameter is
"GSM CN Node: CN Node Index=x, Operator Index=y, Operator Name=z".
For other DSP types, the value of the additional information parameter is
"NULL".

Symptom: The counter values are inappropriate, for example, ultra-large
values are displayed.
Impact: The measured counter values are incorrect.
Severity Suggestion

Root During the patch upgrade, the OMU software version and the host software
Cause version will be temporarily inconsistent, causing the number of counters for
the same measurement object to change after the upgrade. As a result, the
performance measurement result on the OMU is incorrect.
Solution The following functions are now enabled during a patch upgrade:

The counters that users subscribed to before the upgrade are completely
inherited after the upgrade.
The OMU checks the performance measurement result file reported by the
host before performing the measurement. If the number of counters for a
measurement object is incorrect, the OMU does not measure performance
counters of the measurement object.
