Adaptive Hard Handover Optimization in Multi-Sector
Feature Parameter Description 2 Overview

2 Overview

2.1 Background
In multi-sector scenarios, the number of neighboring cells grows with the cell quantity. If the
source cell delivers too many neighboring cells in the system information block SIB11 or
SIB12, the SIB11 or SIB12 length will exceed 3552 bits, the maximum value specified in
3GPP TS 25.331. In this case, the RNC automatically discards information of low-priority
neighboring cells.
When the neighboring cell priority is incorrectly configured or not configured, some
important neighboring cells will not be delivered in system broadcast messages, increasing
the service drop rate.
To solve these problems, WRFD-190102 Adaptive Hard Handover Optimization in Multi-
Sector is introduced.

2.2 Introduction
In multi-sector scenarios, the RNC dynamically adjusts the priority configurations of inter-
frequency UMTS and inter-RAT UMTS-to-GSM neighboring cells so that information of the
neighboring cells with more successful handovers and higher handover success rate are
preferentially delivered in the measurement control messages and system messages.

2.3 Benefits
In multi-sector scenarios, the increase in neighboring cell quantity complicates the
neighboring cell relationships. This feature enables the RNC to identify the best neighboring
cells and periodically reconfigure the priority parameters for the inter-frequency UMTS and
inter-RAT UMTS-to-GSM neighboring cells to reduce the service drop rate. Besides, this
feature provides the automatic optimization mechanism to minimize manual operation and
reduces the O&M costs.

3 Technical Description

3.1 Overview
This feature applies to multi-sector cells and ensures that the important neighboring cells are
preferentially delivered in the measurement control messages and system messages through
the following operations:
l By analyzing the handover information and cell update information between the source
cell and the configured inter-frequency neighboring cell, this feature enables the RNC to
automatically modify the priorities of inter-frequency neighboring cells.
l By analyzing the inter-RAT handover information between the source cell and the
neighboring GSM cell, this feature enables the RNC to automatically modify the
priorities of the inter-RAT UMTS-to-GSM neighboring cells.
This feature involves the following functions:
l Inter-frequency neighboring cell priority optimization
l Inter-RAT neighboring cell priority optimization

3.2 Inter-Frequency Neighboring Cell Priority


Optimization
When the inter-frequency neighboring cell priority optimization function is enabled, the RNC
measures the number of handover attempts, successful handovers, cell update attempts, and
successful cell updates between the source cell and its inter-frequency neighboring cells,
calculates the comprehensive scores of inter-frequency neighboring cells, and sorts these cells
accordingly. Neighboring cells with higher ranks are allocated higher priorities.

Adaptive Hard Handover Optimization in Multi-Sector
Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

NOTE

l A maximum of 32 inter-frequency neighboring cells can be delivered in the measurement control


message. When more than 32 inter-frequency neighboring cells are configured, it is recommended
that the inter-frequency batch measurement switch be turned on (InterfreqMcMode (BSC6900,
BSC6910): ON) to ensure that all neighboring cells are properly sequenced based on handover- and
cell update-related counters. If this switch is turned off, some inter-frequency neighboring cells are
not delivered in the measurement control message and therefore are not measured in handover-
related counters. These cells rank low in the neighboring cell list and are allocated low priorities,
leading to inaccurate sequence of neighboring cell priorities.
l The handover data between the source cell and the blacklisted inter-frequency neighboring cell is not
measured. If BLACKLIST_FLAG under the NCellCapContainer (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter
is set to 1, the inter-frequency neighboring cell is blacklisted.

Configuring related parameters to enable inter-frequency neighboring cell priority


optimization
1. Configure priority groups of inter-frequency neighboring cells based on parameter
configurations in Table 3-1.

Table 3-1 Parameters related to inter-frequency neighboring cell priorities

Parameter Name Parameter ID Description

InterNcell Priority InterNcellPriValue (BSC6900, Specifies the priority of the


Value BSC6910) inter-frequency cell group.
The value ranges from 0 to
63. A smaller value
indicates a higher priority.

InterNcell Priority StartInterNcellPriGrpRank The value ranges from 1 to


Group Start Rank (BSC6900, BSC6910) 64. The start rank must be
smaller than or equal to the
InterNcell Priority EndInterNcellPriGrpRank end rank.
Group End Rank (BSC6900, BSC6910)

2. Specify the inter-frequency neighboring cell parameter optimization period


(InterNcellParaOptPrd (BSC6900, BSC6910)), and turn on the system message inter-
frequency neighboring cell priority optimization switch
(PERFENH_SIB_INTERNCELL_PRI_OPT_SWITCH) and the inter-frequency
neighboring cell priority optimization switch (InterNcellPriOptSw (BSC6900,
BSC6910)) under the PerfEnhanceSwitch2 (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter, to start
inter-frequency neighboring cell priority optimization.

NOTE

The RNC discretely measures the number of handovers in a cell, which may delay the feature start time
by 0 to 100 minutes. If the RNC internal processing capability is insufficient, only data of some cells can
be processed within an optimization period.

When the inter-frequency neighboring cell priority optimization function is enabled, the
RNC automatically reconfigures and optimizes related parameters.

Figure 3-1 shows the process of automatically reconfiguring the inter-frequency neighboring
cell parameters.

WCDMA RAN
Adaptive Hard Handover Optimization in Multi-Sector
Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

The source cell is a split cell if both the following conditions apply:
○ Condition 1: The value of the SplitInd (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter
is not No_SplitANT.
○ Condition 2: Four or more cells are served by the same UARFCN on the
NodeB that serves the source cell.
For example, cell A is served by UARFCN 10713 under NodeB B, and
UARFCN 10713 serves five cells in total under NodeB B. Besides, the split
cell indicator of cell A is not No_SplitANT. In this case, cell A is a split cell.
n Scenario 2: Neighboring cell
The neighboring cell is a split cell if the following condition applies:
The value of the SplitInd (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter is not
No_SplitANT.
NOTE

The number of cells served by the same UARFCN under the NodeB does not need to
be queried to determine whether the neighboring cell is a split cell. There is a large
number of neighboring cells, and if each cell is queried, the RNC performance will be
affected.
– The neighboring cell is an inter-RNC neighboring cell.
n An Iur interface is configured but HHO is not supported: The IurExistInd
(BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter is set to TRUE and the HHOTRIG
(BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter is set to OFF. Optimization is not performed
for these cells.
n There is no Iur interface: The IurExistInd (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter is
set to FALSE.
4. Calculate the score of neighboring cells based on the handover information and the cell
update information and sequence the cells accordingly.
a. The comprehensive scores are calculated based on the number of hard handover
attempts and successful hard handovers.
i. Calculate the hard handover success rate between the source cell and its inter-
frequency neighboring cell.
Hard handover success rate = Number of successful hard handovers/Number
of hard handover attempts
ii. Calculate the hard handover score for each inter-frequency neighboring cell.
Hard handover score = Hard handover success rate x Number of successful
hard handovers
NOTE

The handover score depends on the handover success rate and the number of
successful handovers. Higher handover success rate and more number of successful
handovers indicates higher handovers scores. Therefore, the handover score is
calculated by using the preceding formula.
iii. Calculate the normalized handover score for each inter-frequency neighboring
cell.
Normalized handover score = Handover score x 100/Max(Handover scores of
all the inter-frequency neighboring cells of the source cell)
b. The comprehensive scores are calculated based on the number of cell update
attempts and successful cell updates.

WCDMA RAN
Adaptive Hard Handover Optimization in Multi-Sector
Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

i. Calculate the cell update success rate between the source cell and its inter-
frequency neighboring cell.
Cell update success rate = Number of successful cell updates/Number of cell
update attempts x 100%
ii. Calculate the cell update score for each inter-frequency neighboring cell.
Cell update score = Cell update success rate x Number of successful cell
updates
iii. Calculate the normalized cell update score for each inter-frequency
neighboring cell.
Normalized cell update score = Cell update score x 100/Max(Cell update
scores of all the inter-frequency neighboring cells of the source cell)
c. Calculate the comprehensive sore based on the normalized handover score and the
normalized cell update score.
Comprehensive score = Normalized handover score x Handover score weight +
Normalized cell update score x (1 – Handover score weight)
The handover score weight is the value configured for the HOScoreWeight
(BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter.
d. The inter-frequency neighboring cells are sequenced in the descending order of the
comprehensive score.
e. If the control switch for sequencing neighboring cell priorities in special scenarios
is enabled, the load-based inter-frequency neighboring cells and network sharing-
based inter-frequency neighboring cells can be further sequenced. For details, see
3.4 Neighboring Cell Priority Sequencing in Special Scenarios.
5. Determine the neighboring cell priority based on the priority group.
Determine the priority based on the priority group configured by users. Determine the
priority based on the priority group configured by users. Table 3-1 lists parameters
related to inter-frequency neighboring cell priorities.
For example, four priority groups are configured in the RNC. Detailed values are
configured as follows:
– [1, 10]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 1 to 10 is 1.
– [11, 20]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 11 to 20 is 2.
– [21, 31]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 21 to 31 is 3.
– [32, 64]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 32 to 64 is 4.
Special handling 1: If some cells are not configured with priorities, the priority flag
NPrioFlag (BSC6900, BSC6910) of these cells is set to FALSE. Cells not configured
with a priority have the lowest priority.
For example, if priority groups are configured only for neighboring cell ranking from 1
to 31, the NPrioFlag (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter is FALSE for cells ranking 32
and later. These cells then have the lowest priority.
Special handling 2: If neighboring cells overlap in different priority groups, the priority
of the overlapping neighboring cells is set to the smallest value.
For example:
– [1, 10]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 1 to 10 is 1.
– [5, 15]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 5 to 15 is 2.
According to the preceding rule, the priority of neighboring cells ranking from 5 to 10 is
1.

WCDMA RAN
Adaptive Hard Handover Optimization in Multi-Sector
Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

Special handling 3: If a neighboring cell whose priority cannot be optimized is in the


priority group (see Table 3-2), the priority of the cell remains unchanged.
Special handling 4: If no priority group is configured in the RNC, the neighboring cell
priority optimization algorithm is not performed. The algorithm will be performed when
at least one priority group exists.
6. Provide optimization suggestions and deliver optimization instructions.
The RNC automatically delivers optimization instructions for modifying the neighboring
cell priorities based on the optimization suggestions.
NOTE

l After the optimization suggestions are generated, flow control will be triggered and the feature
will not take effect if the RNC CPU load is high (CPU load > min (SMPAGERTHD
(BSC6900, BSC6910), SLPAGERTHD, CPAGERTHD (BSC6900, BSC6910))).
l The manually modified priority will be replaced by the new priority after the feature takes
effect.

After the algorithm is performed, the inter-frequency neighboring cells with high priorities are
preferentially measured in inter-frequency measurement control. To ensure that the inter-
frequency neighboring cells with high priorities are preferentially delivered in the system
information, PERFENH_SIB_INTERNCELL_PRI_OPT_SWITCH under the
PerfEnhanceSwitch2 (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter must be set to ON.
If this switch is turned on, the RNC needs to consider all the following parameters when
delivering inter-frequency neighboring cells in the system message: blind handover flag
(BlindHOFlag (BSC6900, BSC6910)), coverage priority flag (HOCovPrio (BSC6900,
BSC6910)), and neighboring cell priority flag (NPrio (BSC6900, BSC6910)). If this switch is
turned off, the neighboring cell priority does not need to be considered. The detailed process
of determining the sequence for delivering inter-frequency neighboring cells is shown in
Figure 3-2.

3.3 Inter-RAT Neighboring Cell Priority Optimization


When the inter-RAT UMTS-to-GSM neighboring cell priority optimization function is
enabled, the RNC measures the number of handover attempts and successful handovers
between the source cell and its neighboring GSM cell, calculates the comprehensive scores of
neighboring GSM cells, and sorts these cells accordingly. Top-scored neighboring cells are
allocated with higher priorities.

NOTE

A maximum of 32 neighboring GSM cells can be delivered in the measurement control message. If
more than 32 neighboring GSM cells are configured, some inter-frequency neighboring cells are not
delivered in the measurement control message and therefore are not measured in handover-related
counters. These cells have low ranks in the neighboring cell list and are allocated with low priorities,
leading to inaccurate sequence of neighboring cell priorities.

by 0 to 100 minutes. If the RNC internal processing capability is insufficient, only data of some cells can
be processed within an optimization period.

Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

For example, four priority groups are configured in the RNC. Detailed values are
configured as follows:
– [1, 10]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 1 to 10 is 1.
– [11, 20]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 11 to 20 is 2.
– [21, 31]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 21 to 31 is 3.
– [32, 64]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 32 to 64 is 4.
Special handling 1: If some cells are not configured with priorities, the priority flag
NPrioFlag (BSC6900, BSC6910) of these cells is set to FALSE. Cells not configured
with a priority have the lowest priority.
For example, if priority groups are configured only for neighboring cell ranking from 1
to 31, the NPrioFlag (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter is FALSE for cells ranking 32
and later. These cells then have the lowest priority.
Special handling 2: If neighboring cells overlap in different priority groups, the priority
of the overlapping neighboring cells is set to the smallest value.
For example:
– [1, 10]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 1 to 10 is 1.
– [5, 15]: The priority of neighboring cells ranking from 5 to 15 is 2.
According to the preceding rule, the priority of neighboring cells ranking from 5 to 10 is
1.
Special handling 3: If a neighboring cell whose priority cannot be optimized is in the
priority group (see Table 3-4), the priority of the cell remains unchanged.
Special handling 4: If no priority group is configured in the RNC, the neighboring cell
priority optimization algorithm is not performed. The algorithm will be performed when
at least one priority group exists.
5. Provide optimization suggestions and deliver optimization instructions.
The RNC automatically delivers optimization instructions for modifying the neighboring
cell priorities based on the optimization suggestions.
NOTE

l After the optimization suggestions are generated, flow control will be triggered and the feature
will not take effect if the RNC CPU load is high (CPU load > min (SMPAGERTHD
(BSC6900, BSC6910), SLPAGERTHD, CPAGERTHD (BSC6900, BSC6910))).
l The manually modified priority will be replaced by the new priority after the feature takes
effect.

3.4 Neighboring Cell Priority Sequencing in Special


Scenarios
Load-specific Inter-Frequency Neighboring Cells
If the Priority Rank Load InterNcell Switch PriRankLoadInterNcellSw (BSC6900,
BSC6910) is set to ON, the top 12 load-specific neighboring cells are ranked above other
types of neighboring cells. The top 12 load-specific neighboring cells are calculated based on
the comprehensive score. Load-specific neighboring cells ranking 13 and later are sequenced
together with other types of neighboring cells.
A cell is a load-specific cell if the value of any of the following parameters is TRUE:

NOTE

It is recommended that the Priority Rank Load InterNcell switch be set to ON in networks enabled with
load-specific algorithms and configured with load-specific neighboring cells.

Network Sharing-specific Neighboring Cells


In network sharing scenarios, if the MOCNInterNcellPriOptSw (BSC6900, BSC6910) or
MOCNU2GNcellPriOptSw (BSC6900, BSC6910) parameter is set to ON, the RNC
automatically sequences the priorities of the inter-frequency and inter-RAT neighboring cells
based on the operators of the source cell in an alternating manner, to prevent imbalance of the
number of neighboring cells among operators. The process is described as follows:
1. The RNC queries the operators of the source cell and determines the operators of which
the neighboring cell priority needs to be alternately sequenced.
Assume that the source cell belongs to operators A and B.
2. Select the top five neighboring cells of each operator and then sequence these cells
alternately between operators.
The comprehensive scores of the neighboring cells are listed in Table 3-5.

Network Performance
When this feature is enabled, the RNC identifies the best neighboring cell relationship and
dynamically adjusts the priority configurations of inter-frequency UMTS and inter-RAT
UMTS-to-GSM neighboring cells to ensure that information of the neighboring cells with
more successful handovers and higher handover success rate are preferentially delivered in
the measurement control messages and system messages to the source cell, thereby reducing
the call drop rate.

Feature Parameter Description 6 Engineering Guidelines

6 Engineering Guidelines

6.1 When to Use Adaptive Hard Handover Optimization


in Multi-Sector
It is recommended that this feature be enabled in multi-sector scenarios, including six-sector
and nine-sector scenarios.
In multi-sector scenarios, if more than 75 neighboring cells are configured and access failures
and call drops occur because some important neighboring cells are not delivered in the SIB11
or SIB12 message, or EVT-22937 SysInfo Message Restrict Neighboring Cells Number is
reported, enable this feature so that important neighboring cells are preferentially delivered to
prevent access failures or call drops caused by delayed reselection.

NOTE

If the inter-RAT or inter-frequency neighboring cells are properly configured or the neighboring cell
priority has been optimized before this feature is enabled, the feature benefits may be insignificant after
this feature is enabled.

6.2 Required Information


The following performance counters need to be collected before enabling this feature to
evaluate feature benefits,
l CS call drop rate for cell
CS Service Drop Ratio (Cell) = [VS.RAB.AbnormRel.CS (BSC6900, BSC6910)/
(VS.RAB.AbnormRel.CS (BSC6900, BSC6910) + VS.RAB.NormRel.CS (BSC6900,
BSC6910))] x 100%
l PS call drop rate for cell
PS Call Drop Ratio (Cell) = [VS.RAB.AbnormRel.PS (BSC6900, BSC6910)/
(VS.RAB.AbnormRel.PS (BSC6900, BSC6910) + VS.RAB.NormRel.PS (BSC6900,
BSC6910))] x 100%
PS Call Drop Ratio with PCH (Cell) = [(VS.RAB.AbnormRel.PS (BSC6900,
BSC6910) - VS.RAB.AbnormRel.PS.PCH (BSC6900, BSC6910) -
VS.RAB.AbnormRel.PS.D2P (BSC6900, BSC6910) - VS.RAB.AbnormRel.PS.F2P

6.3 Deployment

6.3.1 Requirements

Other Features
None

Hardware
None

License
This feature is not under license control.

Other Requirements
This feature takes effect only in multi-sector scenarios. Split Cell Indicator must be
configured for the multi-sector cell before this feature is enabled. Run the LST UCELL and
LST UEXT3GCELL commands to check whether Split Cell Indicator is successfully
configured. If Split Cell Indicator is the antenna type used by the split cell, Split Cell
Indicator is successfully configured.
l For a new split cell
Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLSETUP or ADD UCELLQUICKSETUP
with Split Cell Indicator set to the type of antenna used by the split cell.
l For an existing split cell
Run the RNC MML command MOD UCELL with Split Cell Indicator set to the type
of antenna used by the split cell.
l For a new or existing external UMTS cell
Run the RNC MML command ADD UEXT3GCELL or MOD UEXT3GCELL with
Split Cell Indicator set to the type of antenna used by the split cell.

6.3.2 Precautions
It is recommended that this feature be enabled after site reconstruction and RF engineering
optimization are complete. Site reconstruction changes the coverage scope of the sites not
involved in site reconstruction, which changes the existing neighbor relationships and
handover areas and generates new handover areas, causing the original handover parameters
to be improper.

6.3.4 Activation Observation

Method 1
After an optimization period, log in to the LMT through the web browser or the U2000 to
perform operation and maintenance on the RNC and check and export network optimization
logs related to this feature. If the network optimization logs contain optimization suggestions,
this feature takes effect.

Feature Parameter Description 6 Engineering Guidelines

NOTE

The discrete processing mechanism of this feature delays feature activation in cells. Therefore, the
network optimization logs of some cells is generated 0 to 100 minutes after the actual optimization
period ends.

The network optimization logs record the automatic reconfiguration of inter-frequency


neighboring cell priorities and neighboring GSM cell priorities and related parameter settings.

Perform the following operations to view the network operation logs.

1. Log in to the LMT through the web browser or log in to the U2000.
2. Run the EXP UNETOPTLOG command with the start time and end time specified to
query network optimization logs, and then export the logs to a file. The log file is saved
under ftp/UnetOptLog on the active OMU and, by default, named in the BSCX-
YYYYMMDDHHMMSS-nLOG.zip format, where X indicates the RNC ID and
YYYYMMDDHHMMSS indicates the file creation time.
3. Download the log file.
4. Decompress the log files to check the network optimization logs.
