3 Nokia Siemens Networks Signalling and resource allocation improvements for Smartphones in 2G /Network Engineering
Smart Resource Adaptation feature allocates radio timeslots
according to the actual need.

This reduces blocking and frees data traffic channels for applications
that require high throughput.

PCU assigns packet radio resources more efficiently,
resulting in up to five times higher GSM radio network efficiency
for applications that generate small packets.

BSS21228: Downlink dual carrier
DLDC resources are not allocated for the MS with SRA type of 1-TSL DL TBF.
BSS20088: Dual Transfer Mode
PCU does not support the Smart Resource Adaptation feature for DTM TBFs.
BSS402071: Instant QoS Signaling
PCU specifies whether the singleslot DL TBF is a SRA type of DL TBF or Instant QoS Signaling type of
DL TBF. This is done at the TBF establishment as follows:
If all buffered LLC PDUs are short and without the Instant Qos Signaling tag at the time of TBF
establishment, then the DL TBF is a SRA type of DL TBF.
If atleast one PDU is Instant QoS Signaling tagged, then the DL TBF is an Instant QoS Signaling type of
DL TBF.

Reduced multi-slot blocking and hard blocking
Increases the network efficiency as less radio resources are reserved
for signaling type of traffic.
Lesser PS territory upgrade
Lower multiplexing
Smart Resource Adaptation will not only solves the TBF blocking and
PS territory expansion issues but will also result into better spectral
efficiency for PS in the network with dominating short transactions due
to typical smart phone services

Feature impact analysis
Feature impact How to measure
SRA usage - to verify SRA impact on network
performance first the level of SRA usage shall be
monitored. This can be done in terms of:
- portion of new TBFs established with SRA
- portion of single slot SRA allocation converted to
multislot
New KPIs:
SRA_USAGE
CONVERSION_RATE_SRA_TO_MULTISLOT
Higher percentage of 1TSL requests and higher
percentage of 1 TSL allocation SRA activation
should results in increase of percentage in 1 TSL
requests and 1TSL allocation
KPIs:
Distribution of DL multislot requests (msl_2c)

Feature impact analysis
Feature impact How to measure
Lower blocking (multislot soft blocking and
hardblocking) efficent resource allocation for short
data packets allows to reduce softblocking (not optimal
TSL allocation acc. to MS multislot class) and
hardblocking (TBF rejection due to lack of radio
resources).
KPIs:
DL Multislot Soft Blocking (blck_33a)
DL Mslot Allocation Blocking (tbf_16b)
Number of TBFs to be monitored if offered traffic
is high blocking might stay the same but higher number
of TBFs can be served
Counter:

Shorter PS territory with SRA TSLs are used more
efficient and therefore shorter PS territory is needed.
KPIs:
Average available area level PS territory size
for nTRXs (ava_44)

Less PS territory upgrades and less HOs due to
GPRS with SRA less TSLs are used and therefore
less PS territory upgrade requests are expected. As the
consequence less HOs due to GPRS are triggered to
release TSL(s) to be included in the new PS territory

Feature impact How to measure
Lower multiplexing - less radio resources
wasted for short data packets means more
efficent resource allocation and therefore lower
number of users multiplexed on the same
timeslot (PDCH) in DL
KPIs:
Average DL TBF per timeslot (tbf_38d)
LLC Data Throughput - less resources allocated
for short data packets means more recources
available for ftp, webbrowsing and other
services increasing throughput per TBF.
However at some level of cell load the number
of served TBFs with SRA is so high that
throughput per TBF start to decrease
KPIs:
Volume Weighted LLC Throughput (llc_3a)
Upgrade rejections with SRA it is less likely that
territory upgrade request will be rejected or served
incompletely (with lower number of TSLs that
requested).
KPIs:
Territory upgrade rejection rate (blck_22a)
Ratio of incompletely served territory upgrade
requests (blck_35)
