1.1 Introduction to BSS Radio Parameters


900/1800 MHz TDMA digital celluar mobile communication system (GSM) is an integrated
system covering fields of network technology, digital stored program control technology,
all transmission technologies and radio technologies.
GSM consists of Network Sub System (NSS), Base Station Sub-system (BSS) and Mobile
Station (MS).
GSM system signaling structure covers MAP interface, A interface (between MSC and
BSC), Abis interface (between BSC and BTS), Ater interface (between BSC and external
TC) and Um interface (between BTS and MS, also called air interface).
All these objects and interfaces contain large quantity of configuration parameters and
performance parameters, some of which are determined during the development and
production of the equipment, and most of which depend on actual need and operation by
network providers. Settings and adjustment of latter parameters have a great impact on
the operation of entire GSM network.
Radio parameters in GSM network refer to parameters related to radio devices and radio
resources. These parameters have an important impact on coverage of cells, distribution of
signaling flow and service property of network, etc. Therefore, adjusting radio parameters
reasonably plays a very important part in GSM network optimization.

GSM radio parameters are classified into project parameters and resource (cell)
parameters.
1. Project Parameters

Project parameters refer to parameters related to design, installation, and


commissioning of the project, like antenna height, antenna direction, antenna
gain, antenna download obliquity and cable loss, etc. These parameters must be

determined during network design and are seldom changed during the operation of
the network.
2. Resource (Cell) Parameters
Resource (cell) parameters refer to parameters related to configuration and utilization
of radio resources, which usually transmit on radio interface (Um) to keep the base
station and mobile station consistent. Radio parameters covered in this manual are
mainly resource parameters. Radio resource parameters in BSS contain:
l GERAN subnetwork parameters, BSC managed element parameters, and config
set parameters;
l Global resource parameters for BSC, site parameters, GERAN external cell
parameters, UTRAN external cell parameters;
l Cell Parameters;
l TRX parameters, power control parameters, handover control parameters,
UTRAN handover control parameters, adjacent interference cell parameters,
adjacent handover cell parameters, adjacent reselection cell parameters,
adjacent handover and reselection cell parameters, UTRAN adjacent cell
handover and reselection parameters, UTRAN adjacent handover cell
parameters, UTRAN adjacent reselection cell parameters, frequency hopping
system parameters.

For example, this parameter takes effect only after one or multiple related
parameters are enabled; this parameter's value has a restriction relationship
with one or multiple related parameters, such as larger than or smaller than
Related parameters the related parameter.

Relationship Dependency among related parameters

Related interfaces Interfaces related to this parameter

Caution!
1. Radio parameters in this system is modified through offline modification mode, that is, the
modification on interface only can be effective after the synchronization action to foreground is
conducted.
2. Some parameter values in the interface are not fully same as those in database, with certain
corresponding relationship between them. For specific corresponding relationship, refer to
Appendix D.

1.4 Precautions on Parameter Adjustment


Radio parameters adjustment, according to the type of the problem to be solved, falls into
two kinds.
l The first is to solve static problem, that is, to correct traffic model in system design
by measuring actual average traffic and signaling flow in every district and to solve
common problems existing for long.
l Second is to solve problems at a particular time like traffic overload in some district,
channel congestion due to sudden events or random events.

For the first type, service providers must perform measurement and summarization on
actual operation regularly, and then perform appropriate adjustment on global or partial
parameters and configurations. For the second type, network operators adjust some radio
parameters at real time according to instant data from measurement results.
Most radio parameters in GSM system are based on one cell or one location area. It
is necessary to consider if parameter adjustment in this cell will influence other cells,
especially the adjacent one, for parameters between cells are related to each other
greatly. Otherwise, it may cause negative influence. Determine if the problem results from
equipment fault (including connections) first when it occurs in some part of the network.
Adjust radio parameters only when determined that the problem does result from service.

In load indication process, BSC sends BSSAP LOAD INDICATION message to


MSC periodically, notifying about the load status. The message includes time
indication information which indicates the valid time length of the service load
information. MSC relays the BSSAP LOAD INDICATION message to neighbor-
ing BSCs. When the load indication message is sent periodically, this parameter

Chapter 2 BSC Function Parameters

This parameter defines that BSC automatically indicates to MSC about the
ratio of presently available channels to the total channels. When available cell
resource is lower than this parameter, resource indication shall be sent to MSC
about this cell condition, which shall be configured by O&M.
The four modes of resource indication from BSC are as follows:
l Auto mode: After the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST message is re-
ceived, BSC immediately returns a BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION
message as an acknowledgement without containing any resource informa-
tion. BSC automatically sends BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION message
to MSC. BSC uses the periodicity IE in BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST to
determine the indication messages interval (unless the Periodicity IE is 0
and BSC ignores 0) once O&M of BSC satisfies the Auto condition (service
threshold or the interval between any two messages).
l One-off mode: After the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST message is re-
ceived, BSC immediately returns a BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION
message with resource information. BSC stops sending and waits for next
BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST if the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST
message does not contain Extended Resource Indication IE. If there is Ex-
tended Resource Indication IE, BSC shall follow the regulations of Subse-
quent Mode element in the message, same as mode 4. If the previous one
is mode 1 or 3, then you can use mode 1 or 3, otherwise you can use mode
4.
l Period mode: After BSC receives the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST
message, it will immediately return a BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION
message that contains the resource information. After that, BSC periodi-
cally sends the BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION message. If Period-
icity IE in the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST message is not 0, then
the period to send the message is the value of Periodicity IE multiplied
by 100ms. If Periodicity IE is 0, then the message is wrong and the whole
BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST message is regarded as wrong.
l Stop mode: After the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST message is re-
ceived, BSC immediately returns a BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION
message without any resource information as an acknowledgement. And
Description then, it will no longer send the cell resource information to MSC.

The value of timer mT12 must be larger than that of timer mT11. The two
Description
clocks control the cell flow as follows: When the network receives the overload
message for the first time, the system decreases the flow by one level, and
starts mT11 and mT12. The OVERLOAD message during mT11 period will
be ignored. If the OVERLOAD message is received between mT11 and
mT12, the flow will be decreased by another level and both mT11 and mT12
will be restarted. If BSC does not receive the OVERLOAD message after
mT12 stops, the flow increases to one more level, and mT12 restarts. Lower
grade and higher grade represent different proportion to reject service.

3GPP name T3191

3GPP reference 3GPP TS44.060 V5.19.0

This parameter is timer T3169. During the packet downlink transmission, if


the BSN of the RLC data block to be transmitted is the maximum (that is,
the final downlink data block), the network will send a RLC data block whose
Final Block Identifier (FBI) domain is 1 and which includes effective RRBP
domain to initialize release of the downlink TBF. Then the network starts
T3191. For each RLC data block that receives FBI with value 1 and contains
effective RRBP domain:
l In acknowledged mode, the MS sends PACKET DOWNLINK ACK/NACK
message whose FBI domain is 1 on the uplink block specified by the
RRBP domain. If the network receives the PACKET DOWNLINK
ACK/NACK message before T3191 expires and has to re-transmit it,
T3191 is stopped and the required RLC data block is re-transmitted. If
re-transmission is not required, T3191 is stopped and T3193 is started.
When T3193 expires, the network releases TBF. The network also
releases TBF when T3191 stops.
l In unacknowledged mode, MS sends the PACKET CONTROL AC-
KNOWLEDGE message in the uplink block specified as per RRBP field.
T3191 terminates to enable only when the network receives the PACKET
CONTROL ACKNOWLEDGE message before T3191 stops. When
T3193 expires, the network releases TBF. The network also releases
Description TBF when T3191 stops.

This parameter is used to determine the increase of coding mode level.


Unlike the unified coding mode of the circuit channel, the GPRS data block
may employ the CS-1 to CS-4 coding modes, with data rates 9.05 kbps,
13.4 kbps, 15.6 kbps, and 21.4 kbps, respectively. The low level coding
mode has higher error correction capability and lower data throughput.
Different coding modes can be chosen for each timeslot or even each TBF.
During data transmission of GRPR, to reach the maximum radio
throughput, the network shall select the coding mode dynamically
according to the data rate requirement and radio transmission quality.
Good radio transmission quality means that the probability of the
retransmission of the error radio blocks is small. In this time the coding
mode that carries large data volume (that is, high level coding mode) can
be used.
For TBF (uplink and downlink) in the channel coding mode CSn (1n3), if
the number of data blocks transmitted consecutively and correctly exceeds
the predefined parameter Cn[n-1], the coding mode will be increased by
one level.

TBF. During data transmission of GRPR, to reach the maximum radio
throughput, the network shall select the coding mode dynamically
according to the data rate requirement and radio transmission quality.
When the radio transmission quality is poor, the coding mode with stronger
anti-interference capability (that is, low level coding mode) shall be used.
For TBF (uplink and downlink) in the channel coding mode CSn (2n4),
if Xn[n-2]% of the Nn[n-2] data blocks transmitted are lost consecutively,
the coding mode will be decreased by one level.

There are three network operation modes:


l Mode 1: The network sends to the "GPRS-attached" MS the CS pag-
ing message on the same channel of GPRS paging channel (packet
or CCCH paging channel), or on the GPRS traffic channel (when it is
assigned with a packet data channel). It means that MS has to monitor
only one paging channel.
Network operation mode 1 is required while configuring PBCCH; Gs
interfce is required while configuring network operation mode 1.
l Mode 2: The network sends to the GPRS-attached MS the CS pag-
ing message on the CCCH paging channel, which is also for GPRS
paging. It means that MS only has to monitor the CCCH paging chan-
nel. However, when it is assigned with a packet data channel, the CS
paging message will still be sent on the CCCH paging channel.
l Mode 3: The network sends to the "GPRS-attached" MS the CS paging
message on the CCCH paging channel, and sends the GPRS paging
message either on the packet paging channel (if any in the cell) or on
the CCCH paging channel. Mode 3 indicates that the MS must monitor
two paging channels (if packet paging channel is available in the cell)

2.14.2 Support of enhanced radio status procedures (EnRadioStu)


Full name Support of enhanced radio status procedures

Abbreviation EnRadioStu

3GPP name None

3GPP reference None

On the basis of Radio Status, enhanced Radio Status reports three more cause
values:
l x02: Indicates the enhanced Radio Status process is used when the cell
reselection occurs. Usually, it helps satisfy the service requirement to the
maximum extent.
l x03: Indicates the enhanced Radio Status process is used when the MS
is required to perform cell reselection and LLC frame transferring is not
supported.
l x04: Indicates that SGSN is notified when BSC detects cell reselection
failure.
Description SGSN has the following responses:
l When Radio Status with the cause value x02 is received, the downlink LLC
frame sending is resumed after cell reselection is completed.
l When Radio Status with the cause value x03 is received, either the
downlink data sending is resumed after cell reselection is completed, or
Radio Status with other cause values are received.
l When Radio Status with the cause value x04 is received, if there are data
to be sent to MS, then the downlink LLC frame sending is resumed.
With Radio Status that supports multiple cause values, SGSN can better
understand the status of MS, which avoids sending data to the old cell blindly.
This parameter is supported from version 8.00.200a.

This parameter indicates whether Abis resource dynamic management is


allowed.
When dynamic Abis resource management is allowed, Abis resources are
allocate dynamically. That is, when packet Abis resource is applied, BSC
allocates the resource according to the quota. Each cell in the resource
sharing pool is allocated with a quota. The total of the quotas of all cells in
the pool is equal to 100. The quotas are calculated based on statistic items.
Description
Each statistic item is assigned with a weight based on the importance. The
weights include RS, RR, RA, RM, RB, RG, and RE. The statistic items include
cell carrier statistics, packet access times, packet transmission traffic at
uplink and downlink, and EGPRS MS request times. The calculation quota is
re-calculated periodically with a certain interval. The database allocates Abis
timeslot to PS services of each cell according to the quota.
This parameter is supported from version 8.00.200a.

Chapter 3 External Cell Parameters

MS uses GPRS access minimum signal level for GPRS system access in
weak signal conditions. It is broadcasted to MS via system message by
BTS. The transmission power of MS is controlled by the network during its
communications with BTS. The network controls the MS power by the
power command and the MS must use the transmission power specified
by the network as its output power. If the MS cannot output that power
value, it will use the power that is closest to the specified value as its
transmission power.
This parameter is also a parameter for cell selection and reselection by
MS, involved in calculation of C1 and C2 values.
Refer to appendix C, for the maximum power before MS receives the
power control information.
The principle of setting this parameter is as follows: Under the precondition
that the MS at the cell boundary is guaranteed with a certain access
success rate, the MS access level should be reduced as much as
possible. The value of this parameter is usually set as 5 (corresponding to
GSM900MS) and 2 (corresponding to GSM1800MS).
In actual application, after the parameter is set, make a dial test at the cell
boundary, and test MS access success rate and access time with different
parameter settings to determine if to increase or decrease the value of the
parameter.
This parameter indicates the parameters used during reselection on idle
Description status, which only functions while configuring PBCCH.

Full name MIN received signal level to access

Abbreviation RxLevAccessMin

3GPP name RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN

3GPP reference 3GPP TS45.008 V5.22.0

To prevent MS from accessing the system at a low receiving signal


level (usually, the poor communication quality cannot guarantee normal
communications after access), and from unreasonably wasting the radio
sources of network, it is prescribed in GSM system that the receiving
level be greater than a threshold for MS to access the network, that is,
MS Min RxLev to Access (the minimum receiving level for MS to access
the network).
In addition, it is one of the criteria for MS to select and reselect the cell.
The parameter will be broadcast to all MSs in a cell through the RIL3_RR
SYSTEM INFORMATION TYPE3 and TYPE4 messages. MIN received
signal level to access is one of the cell selection parameters.
Recommended value is usually approximated according to MS receiving
sensitivity. When network observes uneven traffic distribution in certain
cells, MIN received signal level to access increases the resulting C1 and C2
to decrease the cell effective coverage range. However, the value of this
parameter cannot be too large. Otherwise, large value change can bring
void area across cell boundaries to result in sudden call drop problem.
With this measure for traffic balance, it is suggested that the level value
should not exceed -90 dBm. Define the parameter value to 10 (that is,
from -101 ~ -100 dBm) at initial network rollout stage or lower, which is
higher than the receiving sensitivity of MS (that is, -102 dBm). However, 2
dB increase in parameter value is allowable in situations where network
Description coverage is not a problem.

The parameter is used at MS side. It belongs to the PRACH control


parameters and it is broadcast to MS in the PSI1 message. In establishment
of a connection, MS usually will send the channel request message in
the PRACH channel to the network.
As PRACH is an ALOHA channel, to improve MS access success rate, the
network allows MS to send multiple channel request messages before
packet assignment message is received. If MS does not receive any
response for the previous channel request message, MS resends channel
request message after waiting for a random period. Network uses S

Full name Control channel MAX power level

Abbreviation MsTxPwrMaxCch

3GPP name MS_TXPWR_MAX_CCH

3GPP reference 3GPP TS45.008 V5.22.0

During the communication between MS and BTS, the transmission power


is controlled by the network. The network sets the power for MS through
the power command and the command is transmitted on SACCH (SACCH
has 2 header bytes. One is the power control byte and the other is the
timing advance byte).
MS must extract the power control header from downward SACCH and
takes the specified transmission power as output power. If the power level
of MS cannot output the power value, it will output the closest transmission
power that can be output.
For SACCH is Channel Associated Signaling and it has to be used together
with SCCCH and TCH, so the power control of MS starts after MS receives
Description
SACCH.

Chapter 4 Cell Parameters

The power of MS before receiving SACCH (that is the power when sending
channel request on RACH) is determined by Control channel MAX power
level.
Control channel MAX power level is one of the cell selection and reselection
parameters of MS, involving calculation of C1 and C2 values.
This parameter is broadcast to all MS in the cell via RIL3_RR SYSTEM
INFORMATION TYPE3 and TYPE4.
Refer to appendix C, for the maximum power before MS receives the
power control information.
If this parameter is set too large, the MS near BTS will interfere the adjacent
channels. If it is too small, the MS at the cell boundaries will have low
access success rate.
The principle of setting this parameter is as follows: Under the precondition
that the MS at the cell boundary is guaranteed with a certain access
success rate, the MS access level should be reduced as much as possible.
Generally, it is recommended to set this parameter as 5 (for GSM900MS)
and 0 (for GSM1800MS).
In practice, after setting this parameter, perform dialing test at the cell edge,
increase or decrease the value of this parameter according to the MS
access success rate and access time tested with different parameter setup.

ZXG10 iBSC Radio Parameter Reference

Number of multiframes of the PCH specifies the repeat cycle of PCH group
subchannel using multiple 51-MultiFrame structures. It is one of the system
control parameters.
According to GSM Specifications, a unique IMSI identifies MS and paging
group. IMSI determines the PCH sub-channel for MS in a paging group.
In the actual network, MS only tunes in the paging sub-channel to which it
belongs and ignores the contents of other paging sub-channels, and shuts
off the power supply of some hardware equipment in the MS to save the
power overhead of MS. In other IDLE time, MS shuts off the hardware
equipment power supply to save power. Number of PCH multiframes
determines the number of paging sub-channels of the paging channel in a
cell.
MS uses this parameter to find out its home paging group, so as to
monitor corresponding paging sub-channel. Network broadcasts the
parameter information to all MSs in the cell through RIL3_RR SYSTEM
INFORMATION TYPE3 message. Number of multiframes of the PCH is
Description one of the system control parameters.

IMSI attach/detach allowed determines if cell allows IMSI Attach/Detach


procedure. IMSI detach occurs when MS reports switch-off or when the
SIM card is taken out from the MS.
The network (normally VLR) marks Detach flag in subscriber information
table. Such procedure assists the network to prevent unnecessary paging
broadcast message to MS. Accordingly, the IMSI Attach process means
that the MS reports entering the working status to the network or the MS
checks after the SIM card is re-inserted into the MS if the LAI where the
MS is located is consistent with the original one saved. If yes, the IMSI
Attach process will be started; otherwise, the location updating process
will be started instead.
The network (normally VLR) marks Attach flag in subscriber information

Full name Cell reselection offset

Abbreviation ReselOffset

3GPP name CELL_RESELECT_OFFSET

3GPP reference 3GPP TS 45.008 V5.22.0

The cell reselection due to radio channel quality takes C2 as the standard.
C2 is formed according to C1 parameter, and some special offset
parameters, to add the special influence as to enable MS to enter some
cells in priority. Usually, such measures allow balancing the traffic on the
network.
Besides C1, there are three factors affecting C2: Cell reselection offset,
Temporary offset, and Penalty time.
Cell reselection offset is a magnitude value, which indicates the human
modified value of C2. Calculate a modified value of C2 to encourage or
prevent MS accessing a certain cell, so as to implement balance network.
Network broadcasts the parameter information to all MSs in the cell through
RIL3_RR SYSTEM INFORMATION TYPE3 and TYPE4 messages. It is
one of the cell selection parameters. The validity of this parameter depends
upon Cell reselection parameter indication.
The setting of Cell reselection offset, Temporary offset and the Penalty
Description
time are classified into three cases:

Chapter 4 Cell Parameters

l In case of large traffic or poor communication quality inside a cell due


to certain causes, normally MS is expected not to work in that cell (that
is, certain repulsion to that cell).
Penalty time can be set as 31 in such cases. Temporary offset is
invalid, and the numerical value of C2 equals C1 minus this parameter
Cell reselection offset. Therefore, the C2 value corresponding to the
cell is decreased, and reduces the possibility that MS reselecting the
cell. Besides, the proper value of this parameter Cell reselection offset
can be set according to the repulsive nature of cell. The more is the
repulsive nature, the larger is the Cell reselection offset. Vice versa in
case of a smaller Cell reselection offset.
l For cells with small traffic and low equipment utilization, normally MS is
encouraged to work in that cell (that is, certain propensity to that cell).
Cell reselection offset must be set between 0 ~ 10 (corresponding to
0 ~ 20 dB) in this case, according to tendency of the cell. The more
is the tendency, the larger is the Cell reselection offset. Vice versa in
case of a smaller Cell reselection offset. It is usually better to set the
Temporary offset same as Cell reselection offset, or a little higher than
Cell reselection offset. The main function of Penalty time is to avoid
frequent cell reselection of MS. The common recommended setting
is 1 (20 seconds) or 2 (40 seconds) (the 1800 cell of dual-frequency
network is such a case).
l For cells with ordinary traffic, usually ReselOffset should be set as 0
and PenaltyTime as 31. Thus, C2 is equal to C1, that is, without human
factors on the cell.

C2 is formed according to C1 parameter, and some special offset
parameters, to add the special influence as to enable MS to enter some
cells in priority. Usually, such measures allow balancing the traffic on the
network.
Besides C1, there are three factors affecting C2: Cell reselection offset,
Temporary offset, and Penalty time. Temporary offset indicates the
temporary modification value for C2. Temporary means that it only acts on
C2 for a period and the period depends on parameter Penalty time.

4.5.6 Cell reselecting hysteresis level (ReselHysteresis, 2dB)


Full name Cell reselecting hysteresis level

3GPP name CELL_RESELECT_HYSTERESIS

3GPP reference 3GPP TS 45.008 V5.22.0

Whenever MS moves across the two cell boundary-regions with different


location area codes, it initiates Location Update (LU) procedure in IDLE
mode.
C2 values obtained at the boundary for two adjacent cells are different
because of fading characteristic of radio channel. It causes MS to select
cell frequently. In this case, LU interval is more than cell reselection
interval. This affects call success rate, due to unreachable paging response

This increases the signaling flow on the network and causes radio
resources to be fully utilized. In addition, it decreases call completion rate
of the system, as MS cannot respond to paging during location update.
In addition, value difference must be greater than the value specified in
CRH.
Network broadcasts the parameter information to MS in the cell through
RIL3_RR SYSTEM INFORMATION TYPE3 and TYPE4 messages. Cell
reselecting hysteresis level is one of the cell selection parameters.
Define Cell reselecting hysteresis level to 4 or 5 and make certain
adjustments in following cases:
l Increase cell reselection parameters of adjacent cells with different LAC.
Signaling traffic overload often occurs due to large demand of services.
l When the adjacent cells in different location areas have large over-
lapped coverage, it is suggested to increase the CRH parameter.
l If the adjacent cells with different LACs are poor in overlapped coverage,
that is, there is coverage gap, or the adjacent place is an area with
few slow moving objects such as the expressway, the CRH parameter
should be set as 1 ~ 3 (that is, 2dB ~ 6dB for the CRH level).

In GSMR, NCH is used to notify MS of the existing VBS and VGCS calls in the cell,
so that MS can add them to its call. It occupies CCCH. This parameter defines the
specific position of NCH, that is, NCH starts occupying continuous n CCCH blocks
from the m block. Where, n is the number of occupied blocks, and m is the ID of
the starting block.
The relations among NchPosition, n, and m are as follows:
l If NchPosition is 0 ~ 6, then n=1, m=NchPosition;
Description
l If NchPosition is 7 ~ 12, then n=2, m=NchPosition-7;
l If NchPosition is 13 ~ 17, then n=3, m=NchPosition-13;
l If NchPosition is 18 ~ 21, then n=4, m=NchPosition-18;
l If NchPosition is 22 ~ 24, then n=5, m=NchPosition-22;
l If NchPosition is 25 ~ 26, then n=6, m=NchPosition-25;
