2 UE Behaviors in Idle Mode Introduction

The UE enters the idle mode immediately after being switched on. The feature "UE behaviors
in idle mode" ensures that the UE is ready to start a service (for example, to make a call or
pick a call).
The behaviors are as follows:
PLMN selection
This procedure ensures that the PLMN selected by the UE provides services properly.
Cell selection and reselection
This procedure ensures that the UE finds a suitable cell to camp on.
Location registration
This procedure is used by the UE to report its status to the network. This procedure is of
two types: periodical location registration and the location registration necessitated by
changes in the location area.
In addition, the UE in idle mode takes the following actions:
Paging reception
The network sends paging messages to the UE in CELL_PCH or URA_PCH state.
The UE detects the paging indicator on the PICH within the predefined time and receives
corresponding paging messages on the S_CCPCH. If the cell and the UE in
CELL_FACH support the HS-DSCH function, UE in CELL_PCH or URA_PCH state
receives paging messages on the HS-PDSCH.
Broadcast information reception
The network broadcasts the network information to the UE that camps on the cell. Upon
reception of broadcast information, the UE obtains the network information and takes
actions accordingly.
This feature enables the UE for the following:
Receive system information from the PLMN
Prepare to establish the RRC connection
Prepare to respond to paging messages
Receive cell broadcast services
Report the UE state to the network periodically or in event-triggered mode

3 UE Behaviors in Idle Mode Principles

3.1 PLMN Selection


When the UE is switched on, or the coverage is restored, or the UE selects a cell that belongs
to another PLMN, the UE selects the registered PLMN or its equivalent PLMN. If no
registered PLMN or equivalent PLMN is available, or if registration fails, the UE performs
one of the following two procedures, depending on its operating mode:
Automatic selection
The UE automatically selects a PLMN according to the priority order.
Manual selection
The UE shows all available PLMNs to the subscriber. The subscriber then selects a
PLMN.

Exceptions: As an option, in automatic network selection mode, the UE selects a PLMN from the
HPLMNs. Operators can select this option in SIM card setting.

3.1.1 Automatic PLMN Selection


In automatic PLMN selection mode, the UE can select a PLMN from the Home PLMNs
(HPLMNs) and roam in the Visited PLMN (VPLMN).

The MCC and MNC, which are in the PLMN identity of the HPLMN, match the MCC and MNC
in the IMSI of the UE.
Except the HPLMNs, the PLMNs that the UE camps on are defined as VPLMNs.

Selecting from the HPLMNs


To select a PLMN from the HPLMNs, the UE does as follows:
The UE maintains a list of allowed and available PLMNs in priority order. When selecting a
PLMN, the UE searches for the PLMNs from the highest priority to the lowest.

Roaming in the VPLMN


If a UE stays in a VPLMN, it periodically searches for the HPLMN and higher-priority
PLMNs for better services.

Error! Unknown document property name. appear here.

For this purpose, a value of T minutes may be stored in the SIM. Either T is in the range 6
minutes to 8 hours with a step of 6 minutes or T indicates that no periodic attempts shall be
made. If no value is stored in the SIM, a default value of 60 minutes is used.
When the UE attempts to access the HPLMN or the PLMN with higher priority, the UE must
adhere to the following rules:
After the UE is switched on, a period of at least two minutes and at most T minutes shall
elapse before the first attempt is made.
Periodic attempts shall be performed only by the UE in idle mode.
Only the priority levels of equivalent PLMNs of the same country (which serve as the
current serving VPLMN) can be compared with the priority level of a selected PLMN.

3.1.2 Manual PLMN Selection


To manually select a PLMN, the UE does as follows:
The UE maintains a list of allowed and available PLMNs in priority order. When selecting a
PLMN, the UE indicates the list to the subscriber who will select a PLMN, and then camps on
the selected PLMN.

For more details of the PLMN selection, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304 and 3GPP TS 23.122.

3.2 Cell Selection


When the PLMN is selected and the UE is in idle mode, the UE starts to select a cell that
belongs to the selected PLMN to camp on and to resume normal services.

3.2.1 Cell Selection Procedure

selection
4 Camped The UE obtains limited services and selects a cell through cell
on any cell selection or reselection. In this case, the PLMN identity is not
considered.

Figure 3-1 also shows the following items:


Initial cell selection
If no cell information is stored for the PLMN, the UE starts the initial cell selection. For
this procedure, the UE need not know in advance which Radio Frequency (RF) channels
are UTRA bearers. The UE scans all RF channels in the UTRA band according to its
capabilities to find a suitable cell of the selected PLMN.
On each carrier, The UE has to search for the strongest cell. Once a suitable cell is found,
this cell shall be selected.
Stored information of cell selection
For this procedure, The UE has to know the central frequency information and other
optional cell parameters that are obtained from the measurement control information
received before, such as scrambling codes.
After this procedure is started, the UE selects a suitable cell if any. Otherwise, the initial
cell selection procedure is triggered.
Suitable cell
A suitable cell is the cell that the UE may camp on to obtain normal services.
Cell selection of the UE leaving the connected mode
When returning to the idle mode from the connected mode, the UE shall select a suitable
cell to camp on. Candidate cells for this selection are the cells used immediately before
the UE leaves the connected mode.
When returning to the idle mode after an emergency call on any PLMN, the UE shall
select an acceptable cell to camp on. Candidate cells for this selection are the cells used
immediately before the UE leaves the connected mode.
If no acceptable cell is found, the UE shall continue to search for an acceptable cell on
any PLMN in the state "Any cell selection".
Acceptable cell
An acceptable cell is the cell that the UE may camp on to obtain limited services. For
example, the UE may originate emergency calls.

3.2.2 Cell Selection Criteria


The cell selection criterion S is fulfilled when:
Srxlev > 0 and Squal > 0,
where
Squal = Qqualmeas Qqualmin
Srxlev = Qrxlevmeas - Qrxlevmin - Pcompensation

Qqualmin Qqualmin, Min quality level
Qrxlevmin Qrxlevmin, Min RX level
Pcompensation Max (UE_TXPWR_MAX_RACH P_MAX, 0) (dB)
where
UE_TXPWR_MAX_RACH: MaxAllowedUlTxPower, Max allowed UE
UL TX power.
P_MAX: maximum RF output power of the UE (dBm)

3.3 Cell Reselection


The signal strength of both serving cell and neighboring cells varies with the movement of a
UE and so the UE needs to select the most suitable cell to camp on. This process is called cell
reselection. Cell reselection involves three parts: cell reselection process, measurement start
criteria, and cell reselection criteria.

3.3.1 Cell Reselection Process


The cell reselection process is as follows:
Step 1 The UE calculates the cell SX according to the following formulas:
Squal = Qqualmeas - Qqualmin

Srxlev = Qrxlevmeas - Qrxlevmin - Pcompensation

For detailed description of the formulas, see 3.2 Cell Selection.


Figure 3-1 shows the cell reselection of the UEs in idle mode.

Step 2 The UE decides whether to start the intra-frequency or inter-frequency measurement


according to the measurement start criteria.
To start the intra-frequency, inter-frequency, or inter-RAT measurement, go to Step 3.
Otherwise, end the cell reselection.
Step 3 The cells are queued according to the measurement results.
Step 4 The UE selects a suitable cell to camp on according to the cell reselection criteria.
----End

3.3.2 Measurement Start Criteria


The Hierarchical Cell Structure (HCS) may affect the measurement start criteria for cell
reselection.
HCS Disabled
Figure 3-2 shows the intra-frequency, inter-frequency, and inter-RAT measurement criteria in
the case when the system messages broadcast by the serving cell indicate that the HCS is
disabled.

Figure 3-2 Measurement start criteria for cell reselection with HCS disabled

Intra-frequency measurement
If Squal > Sintrasearch, the UE need not start the intra-frequency measurement.
If Squal Sintrasearch, the UE need to start the intra-frequency measurement.
If system messages do not contain Sintrasearch, the UE always need to start the intra-
frequency measurement.

Inter-frequency measurement
If Squal > Sintersearch, the UE need not start the inter-frequency measurement.
If Squal Sintersearch, the UE need to start the inter-frequency measurement.
If system messages do not contain Sintersearch, the UE always need to start the inter-
frequency measurement.
Sintersearch is set through IdleSintersearch on the RNC side.
Inter-RAT measurement
If Squal > SsearchRATm, the UE need not start the inter-RAT measurement.
If Squal SsearchRATm, the UE need to start the inter-RAT measurement.
If system messages do not contain SsearchRATm, the UE always need to start the inter-
RAT measurement.
SsearchRATm is set through SsearchRat on the RNC side.

3.3.3 Cell Reselection Criteria


H criterion and R criterion are used for cell reselection.
The quality level threshold criterion H for the HCS is used to determine whether the
prioritized ranking based on the hierarchical cell reselection rules shall apply.

If the system information indicates that the HCS is not used, the quality level threshold
criterion H does not apply.
The cell-ranking criterion R is defined by:

where

TEMP_OFFSETn is used as an offset to the R criterion for the duration of PENALTY_TIMEn


after a timer Tn is started for that neighboring cell.
TEMP_OFFSETn and PENALTY_TIMEn are only applicable when the system information
indicates that the HCS is enabled.
The mapping between the parameters in the previous formulas and the parameters in the LMT
are described in Table 3-6.

Figure 3-3 shows the cell reselection procedure. The procedure describes the measurement
start and criteria relations. The actual procedure varies with UE implementation.

Figure 3-3 Cell reselection procedure

Firstly, the UE shall select certain cells that are ranked with reference to the S criterion in the
following cases:
When HCS is not used (UseOfHcs is set to NOT_USED), the UE shall rank all cells,
without considering HCS priority levels.
When HCS is used (UseOfHcs is set to USED) and UE moves slowly, the UE shall rank
the cells with the highest HCSPrio among those cells that fulfill the criterion H 0.
When HCS is used and UE moves quickly and if there are cells with a lower HCS
priority than the serving cell that fulfill the criterion H 0, the UE shall rank the cells

with the highest HCSPrio among those cells that fulfill the criterion H 0 and have a
lower HCS priority than the serving cell.
When HCS is used and UE is in high mobility and if there are cells that fulfills the
criterion H 0 with an HCS priority higher or equal to the HCS priority of the serving
cell, the UE shall rank the cells with the lowest HCSPrio that fulfill the criterion H 0
and have an HCS priority higher or equal to the HCS priority of the serving cell.
If HCS is used but no cell fulfills the criterion H 0, the UE shall rank all cells, without
considering HCS priority levels.
Secondly, the UE shall rank the cells according to the R criterion, derive Qmeas,n and
Qmeas,s and calculate the R values, as described in the following cases.
The offset IdleQoffset1sn is used for Qoffsets,n to calculate Rn. The hysteresis IdleQhyst1s
is used for Qhysts to calculate Rs.
If HCS is enabled, TempOffset1 is used for TEMP_OFFSETn to calculate Ton.
Otherwise, TEMP_OFFSETn is not used to calculate Rn. The best ranked cell is the cell
with the highest R value.
If a TDD or GSM cell is ranked as the best cell, the UE shall reselect that TDD or GSM
cell.
If an FDD cell is ranked as the best cell and the quality measure for cell selection and
reselection is set to CPICH RSCP(QualMeas = CPICH_RSCP), the UE shall reselect
that FDD cell.
If an FDD cell is ranked as the best cell and the quality measure for cell selection and
reselection is set to CPICH Ec/No(QualMeas = CPICH_ECNO), the UE shall perform
a second ranking of the FDD cells according to the R criterion specified above.
In this case, however, the UE uses the measurement quantity CPICH Ec/No for deriving
the Qmeas,n and Qmeas,s, and then calculating the R values of the FDD cells. The offset
IdleQoffset2sn is used for Qoffsets,n to calculate Rn, and the hysteresis IdleQhyst2s is
used for Qhysts to calculate Rs.
If the system information indicates that the HCS is enabled, TempOffset2 is used to calculate
Ton. Otherwise, TEMP_OFFSETn is not used to calculate Rn. Following the second ranking,
the UE shall reselect the best ranked FDD cell.
In all the previous cases, the UE can reselect a new cell only when the following conditions
are met:
The new cell is better ranked than the serving cell during a time interval Treselections .
More than one second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell..

For details of the cell reselection criteria, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.

3.4 Location Registration


Location registration is used for the PLMN to trace the current status of the UE. Location
registration ensures that the UE is connected to the network when the UE does not perform
any operation for a long period.

3.4.1 Classification of Location Registration


Location registration refers to the location update for non-GPRS and the route update for
GPRS. Location registration is of the following three types:
Normal location registration
Periodic location registration
IMSI attach/detach

3.4.2 Normal Location Registration


The UE performs normal location registration in the following conditions:
After being switched on, the UE selects a suitable cell that belongs to a new LA or RA.
That is, the LA or RA is different from that recorded in the USIM before the switch-off
of the UE.
The UE in idle mode enters the cell of a new LA or RA.

3.4.3 Periodic Location Registration


Periodic location registration may be used to periodically notify the network of the
availability of the UE. It is controlled by a Periodic Location Update timer (T3212, for non-
GPRS operation) or a Periodic Routing Area Update timer (T3312, for GPRS operation).
The value of T3212 is sent by the network to the UE in SIB 1. The value of T3312 is sent by
the network to the UE in the messages ATTACH ACCEPT and ROUTING AREA UPDATE
ACCEPT. The value of T3312 shall be unique within an RA.
T3212 is set through T3212 on the RNC side. T3312 is set on the CN side.
The description of the timer T3212 is as follows:
When the UE is switched on or the system information indicates that periodic location
registration shall be applied, and the timer T3212 is not running. Then, the timer shall be
loaded with a random value between 0 and the value of T3212, and shall be started.
When the timer T3212 reaches its expiry value, the UE shall initiate the periodic location
registration.
The timer T3212 shall be prevented from triggering periodic location update in
connected mode. When the UE returns to the idle mode, T3212 shall be initialized with
respect to the broadcast timeout value and then be started.
If the UE performs a successful combined routing area update, the timer T3212 shall be
prevented from triggering the periodic location update until the UE starts location update,
for example, because a network operation mode changes or the UE uses non-GPRS
services only.

3.4.4 IMSI Attach/Detach


The IMSI attach/detach process facilitates the fast location registration of the UE in specific
conditions.
When the IMSI attach/detach operation applies, the UE shall send the IMSI detach message to
the network when the UE is switched off or the SIM is removed while being in the
UPDATED state. This IMSI detach message will not be acknowledged by the network.

The system information contains an indicator indicating whether the IMSI attach/detach
operation is mandatory in the cell. The UE shall operate in accordance with the received value
of the indicator. This indicator, however, shall not be considered in GRPS attach/detach.
If the UE still stays in the same LA or RA after being switched on again, the UE shall perform
an LR request indicating IMSI attach. Otherwise, the UE shall perform an LR request
indicating normal location update.
You can set the IMSI attach/detach indicator by setting ATT.

3.5 Paging Reception


By receiving paging messages, the UE is notified of the service requests made by the CN and
the changes in system information.

3.5.1 Reception Process


When a UE stays in idle mode, the paging to the UE is performed within an LA or RA or the
whole RNC. The UE receives the paging information from the PICH, and reads the
information on the S-CCPCH.

3.5.2 Reception Technology


To reduce power consumption, the UE can read the information from the PICH only at a
particular time. This is known as the Discontinuous Reception (DRX) technology. The
interval between two consecutive periods of time is called DRX cycle.
For Frequency Division Duplex (FDD), the DRX cycle length shall be 2k frames, where k is
an integer and is determined by the following three parameters:
CN domain specific DRX cycle length for CS
CN domain specific DRX cycle length for PS
UTRAN DRX cycle length coefficient
The description of the parameters is as follows:
CN domain specific DRX cycle lengths
The UE may be attached to different CN domains with different CN domain specific
DRX cycle lengths. The UE shall store these lengths for all CN domains where the UE is
attached and shall use the shortest one.
The value is set through DRXCYCLELENCOEF on the RNC side.
UTRAN DRX cycle length
This parameter value is sent to the UE through the RRC CONNECTION SETUP
message without distinguishing specific CN domain types.
For a UE in idle mode, the DRX cycle length equals the shortest value of the stored DRX
cycle length for the CN domains where the UE is attached, with no signaling connection
established.
For a UE in CELL_PCH state or URA_PCH state, the DRX cycle length equals the
shortest value of the following lengths:
UTRAN DRX cycle length

Any of the stored DRX cycle length for the CN domains where the UE is attached,
with no signaling connection established

If you set a great DRX cycle length coefficient, the period for UE detect paging information will be long;
therefore, the UE can reduce the power consumption, but the delay for responding to a paging will be
long.

3.6 Broadcast Information Reception


Upon receipt of broadcast information, the UE obtains the network information and takes
actions accordingly.

3.6.1 System Information Reception


Structure of System Information
The structure of system information is like a tree, which includes the following items:
MIB
Master Information Block (MIB) provides reference and scheduling information for a
number of SIBs in a cell or one or two Scheduling Blocks (SBs) in a cell. The MIB
contains only the PLMN types supported and the corresponding PLMN identities.
SB
Scheduling Block (SB) provides reference and scheduling information for other SIBs.
The scheduling information of an SIB may be included in the MIB or SB.
SIB
System Information Block (SIB) contains actual system information. It consists of
system information elements (IEs) with the same purpose.
When selecting a new cell, the UE reads the MIB. The UE may locate the MIB through the
predefined scheduling information.
The UE may use the scheduling information in the MIB and SB to locate each SIB to be
acquired. If the UE receives an SIB in a position according to the scheduling information and
considers the content as valid, the UE will read and store the SIB.

System Information Reception


The UE shall read system information broadcast on a BCH transport channel when the UE is
in idle mode or connected mode (CELL_FACH, CELL_PCH, or URA_PCH state). Then, the
UE takes actions on the following occasions:
When the UE is switched off
Except the SIBs stored in the USIM and used for the stored information cell selection,
the UE shall consider other stored SIBs as invalid.
When the UE is switched on
The UE shall store SIBs with an area scope (cell, PLMN, or equivalent PLMN) and their
value tag. These SIBs are used when the UE returns to the cells.
When the UE selects a new cell in a new PLMN

The UE shall consider all current SIBs with an area scope (cell or PLMN) as invalid, and
shall store and use a new SIB. If the identity of this PLMN does not match the identity of
the previously selected PLMN, the UE shall consider all SIBs with an area scope
(equivalent PLMN) as invalid.
When the UE selects a new cell in the current PLMN
The UE shall consider all current SIBs with an area scope (cell) as invalid, and shall store and
use a new SIB.

3.6.2 Cell Broadcast Service Reception


A UE supporting Cell Broadcast Service (CBS) can receive Broadcast/Multicast Control
(BMC) messages in idle mode. The UE receives BMC messages during time intervals that do
not conflict with the UE specific paging occasions.

3.6.3 MBMS Reception


If all of the following conditions are met:
The UE has activated MBMS services.
The MBMS is available in the cell, that is, the MBMS point-to-multipoint Control
Channel (MCCH) information is provided on the Broadcast Control Channel (BCCH).
The UE is permitted to receive MBMS in the cell.
Then, the UE performs the following operations:
Receives the MCCH.
Receives each FACH. The FACH refers to the one on which the MBMS point-to-
multipoint Traffic Channel (MTCH) is mapped, and the MTCH refers to the one that
carries an activated MBMS service without the need of setting up an RRC connection.
Participates in MBMS counting.
The UE may monitor the MBMS notification Indicator Channel (MICH) and receive the
MBMS point-to-multipoint Scheduling Channel (MSCH).

in the cell. The lower parameter value is, the easier it is for the UE to reside in the cell,
but it is possible that the UE cannot receive the system messages that are sent through
the PCCPCH. For detailed information, refer to the 3GPP TS 25.304.
Qrxlevmin The minimum required RX threshold corresponding to CPICH RSCP. The UE can camp
on the cell only when the measured CPICH RSCP is greater than the value of this
parameter. The setting of Qrxlevmin should be related to Qqualmin. The higher the
parameter is, the more difficult it is for the UE to reside in the cell. The lower parameter
is, the easier it is for the UE to reside in the cell, but it is possible that the UE cannot
receive the system messages that are sent through the PCCPCH. For detailed
information, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
MaxAllowedUlTxP The maximum allowed uplink transmits power of a UE in the cell, which is related to
ower the network planning. For detailed information, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.

Parameter ID Description
the inter-frequency cell reselection start threshold and inter-RAT cell reselection start
threshold. If the cell reselection threshold is set to a comparatively high value, the UE
may frequently start cell reselections, and the battery of the UE may be largely
consumed. If the cell reselection threshold is set to a comparatively low value, it is
difficult for cell reselections to be started, and the UE may not timely reside in the cells
with good quality, affecting the quality of communication between the UTRAN and the
UE. For detailed information, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
IdleSintersearch Threshold for inter-frequency cell reselection in idle mode. When the quality (CPICH
Ec/No measured by UE) of the serving cell is lower than this threshold plus the
[Qqualmin] of the cell, the inter-frequency cell reselection procedure will be started.
This parameter is not configured when its value is 127. The intra-frequency cell
reselection has a priority higher than the inter-frequency cell reselection and inter-RAT
cell reselection, the intra-frequency cell reselection start threshold should be higher than
the inter-frequency cell reselection start threshold and inter-RAT cell reselection start
threshold. If the cell reselection threshold is set to a comparatively high value, the UE
may frequently start cell reselections, and the battery of the UE may be largely
consumed. If the cell reselection threshold is set to a comparatively low value, it is
difficult for cell reselections to be started, and the UE may not timely reside in the cells
with good quality, affecting the quality of communication between the UTRAN and the
UE. For detailed information, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
SsearchRat Threshold for inter-RAT cell reselection. When the quality (CPICH Ec/No measured by
UE) of the serving cell is lower than this threshold plus the [Qqualmin] of the cell, the
inter-RAT cell reselection procedure will be started. This parameter is not configured
when its value is 127. This parameter is not configured when its value is 127. The intra-
frequency cell reselection has a priority higher than the inter-frequency cell reselection
and inter-RAT cell reselection, the intra-frequency cell reselection start threshold should
be higher than the inter-frequency cell reselection start threshold and inter-RAT cell
reselection start threshold. If the cell reselection threshold is set to a comparatively high
value, the UE may frequently start cell reselections, and the battery of the UE may be
largely consumed. If the cell reselection threshold is set to a comparatively low value, it
is difficult for cell reselections to be started, and the UE may not timely reside in the
cells with good quality, affecting the quality of communication between the UTRAN
and the UE. For detailed information, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
SsearchHCS Intra-system HCS cell reselection start threshold. When Srxlev of the serving cell is less
than this parameter, the UE starts the intra-frequency and inter-frequency measurements
so that better cells can be selected. For details, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
UseOfHcs Indicating whether HCS is used. For details, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
SHCSRat Inter-system HCS cell reselection start threshold. When Srxlev of the serving cell is less

Parameter ID Description
before cell reselection.
This parameter defines the offset of cell CPICH RSCP measurement value in cell
selection or reselection when the UE is in idle mode.
In cell reselection algorithm, this parameter is used for moving the border of a cell. This
parameter can be configured by the network planner according to reality.
NOTE:
In FDD mode, this parameter is valid only when SIB11 Indicator is set as TRUE.
For details, refer to 3GPP TS 25.331.
As for the impact on network performance:
The larger the value of the parameter, the lower the probability of selecting neighboring
cells. The smaller the value the parameter, the higher the probability of doing so.
IdleQoffset2sn Offset of cell CPICH Ec/No measurement value in cell selection or reselection when the
UE is in idle mode.
Offset of neighboring cell CPICH measurement value This parameter is used for Ec/No
measurement. The offset is subtracted from the neighboring cell measurement value
before cell reselection.
In cell reselection algorithm, this parameter is used for moving the border of a cell. This
parameter can be configured by the network planner according to reality.
NOTE:
In FDD mode this parameter is valid only when SIB11 Indicator is set as TRUE.
For details, refer to 3GPP TS 25.331.
As for the impact on network performance:
The larger the value of the parameter, the lower the probability of selecting neighboring
cells. The smaller the value the parameter, the higher the probability of doing so.
QUALMEAS Measurement quantity of cell selection and reselection. It can be set to CPICH Ec/N0 or
CPICH RSCP. For detailed information of this parameter, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
IdleQhyst1s The hysteresis value of the serving FDD cells in idle mode in case the quality
measurement for cell selection and reselection is set to CPICH RSCP. It is related to the
slow fading feature of the area where the cell is located. The greater the slow fading
variance is, the greater this parameter.
According to the R regulation, the current serving cell involves in cell selection after the
measurement value is added with the hysteresis value. The measurement hysteresis aims
to prevent the ping-pong effect of the cell reselection, which is caused by the slow
fading when the UE is on the edge of the cell. The ping-pong effect may trigger frequent
location updates (idle mode), URA updates (URA_PCH), or cell updates
(CELL_FACH, CELL_PCH), and thus increase the load of network signaling and the
consumption of UE batteries. Set a proper measurement hysteresis to reduce as much as
possible effect of the slow fading as well as ensuring timely cell updates of the UE.
According to the CPICH RSCP emulation report of inter-frequency hard handovers, the
measurement hysteresis ranges 4 dBm to 5 dBm and is set to 4 dBm by default when the
slow fading variance is 8 dB and the relative distance is 20 m. In the cells where the
slow fading variance is low and the average moving speed of UEs is high, for example
the suburbs and countryside, reduce the measurement hysteresis to guarantee timely
location updates of UEs. The higher the measurement hysteresis is, the less likely it is
for various types of cell reselections to occur, and the better the slow fading resistance
capability is, but the slower the system reacts to the environment changes. For detailed
information of this parameter, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
IdleQhyst2s The hysteresis value of the serving FDD cells in idle mode in case the quality
measurement for cell selection and reselection is set to CPICH Ec/No. It is related to the
slow fading feature of the area where the cell is located. The greater the slow fading

Parameter ID Description
variance is, the greater this parameter. It is optional. If it is not configured, [Hysteresis
1] will be adopted as the value. This parameter is not configured when its value is 255.
According to the R regulation, the current serving cell involves in cell selection after the
measurement value is added with the hysteresis value. The measurement hysteresis aims
to prevent the ping-pong effect of the cell reselection, which is caused by the slow
fading when the UE is on the edge of the cell. The ping-pong effect may trigger frequent
location updates (idle mode), URA updates (URA_PCH), or cell updates
(CELL_FACH, CELL_PCH), and thus increase the load of network signaling and the
consumption of UE batteries. Set a proper measurement hysteresis to reduce as much as
possible effect of the slow fading as well as ensuring timely cell updates of the UE.
According to the CPICH RSCP emulation report of inter-frequency hard handovers, the
measurement hysteresis ranges 4 dBm to 5 dBm and is set to 4 dBm by default when the
slow fading variance is 8 dB and the relative distance is 20 m. In the cells where the
slow fading variance is low and the average moving speed of UEs is high, for example
the suburbs and countryside, reduce the measurement hysteresis to guarantee timely
location updates of UEs. The higher the measurement hysteresis is, the less likely it is
for various types of cell reselections to occur, and the better the slow fading resistance
capability is, but the slower the system reacts to the environment changes. For detailed
information of this parameter, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
Treselections If the signal quality (CPICH Ec/No measured by the UE) of a neighboring cell is better
than that of the serving cell during the specified time of this parameter, the UE reselects
the neighboring cell. It is used to avoid ping-pong reselection between different cells.
Note that the value 0 corresponds to the default value defined in the protocol.
Set the parameter as follows:
1. Ensure that the UE can reselect a cell when crossing the non-soft-switch area of the
cell and that the UE timely performs location updates, cell updates, or URA updates
when necessary.
2. Ensure that the UE does not reselect a cell when it is in the soft-switch area of the
cell. In this way, the unnecessary location updates, cell updates, and URA updates are
avoided.
3. Consider the difference between cells that cover different areas, for example the cells
covering highways and cells covering densely populated areas. TIf the parameter is set
to a comparatively low value, the ping-pong reselections may be caused. The parameter
can be increased in populated area and reduced in high-speed movement. If the
parameter is set to a comparatively high value, the cell reselection delay may become
excessively high, and thus cell reselections may be affected.
For detailed information, refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
HCSPrio HCS priority of the cell belongs to. The parameter depends on HCS rules. For details,
refer to 3GPP TS 25.304.
Qhcs Quality threshold of HCS cell reselection. It can be used to calculate the quality level of
the specified cell in HCS reselection H rules.
TpenaltyHcsResele HCS cell reselection penalty timer.
ct The larger the value of the parameter, the longer the HCS penalty time. The smaller the
value of the parameter, the shorter the HCS penalty time.
TempOffset1 Offset of HCS cell CPICH RSCP measurement value in cell selection or reselection.
The larger the value of the parameter, the lower the probability of selecting neighboring
cells. The smaller the value of the parameter, the higher the probability of doing so.
