Event 2D Triggering Parameter

Selection Criteria
(Huawei)
EVENT 2D TRIGGERING PARAMETER SELECTION CRITERIA
Overview (1)
When active sets RSCP (Ec/No) degrades, coverage-based inter-frequency/inter-RAT HO tends to be conducted. As a
precondition, UE has to first report Event 2D to RNC and start compressed mode for inter-frequency/RAT neighbor measuring.
Event 2D is triggered based on 2D Triggering Threshold parameter, which is sent by RNC in Measurement Control Message. The
triggering threshold can be variable when condition changed, and it has significant impact on UEs behavior and HO performance.
Note: The discussion in this report is also applicable to Event 2F.

Overview (2)
When RSCP (Ec/No) is below 2D Triggering Threshold, UE triggers Event 2D and it is reported to RNC. On receiving this
message, RNC reconfigures UEs physical channel and make it into compressed mode for inter-frequency/inter-RAT neighbor
measuring. Measurement results are then feedback to RNC for HO decision and execution.

Flow Chart & Major Steps
Selection Criteria Flow Chart
Different parameters can be effective for UE triggering Event 2D, which depends on conditions such as traffic class, neighboring
cell configurationand etc. The threshold can also be variable when condition is changed during the connection. Huaweis criteria
for selecting 2D triggering parameter is explained in above flow chart. The algorithm is divided into three major steps and can be
applied in different scenarios.

This parameter specifies
whether HO to 2G network is

HO_TO_GSM_SHOULD_BE_PERFORM: Handover to 2G network is
performed whenever 2G signal is available.

HO_TO_GSM_SHOULD_NOT_BE_PERFORM: Handover to 2G network
is performed only when 3G signal is weak.

Note:
If Service HO Indicator information is carried in RAB_ASSIGNMENT_REQ message from CN during RAB setup
procedure, then the actual setting is following CN configuration while RNC one is not taking into effect.
For PS service, if in one of directions (downlink or uplink) HO to 2G is Not allowed, then for both directions (downlink &
uplink) HO is Not allowed.
EVENT 2D TRIGGERING PARAMETER SELECTION CRITERIA
For CS 12.2kbps conversational service, SHIND in RNC is set as HO_TO_GSM_SHALL_NOT_BE_PERFORM, indicting HO to
2G is Not allowed. However, as the same parameter is carried from CN during RAB setup procedure with configuration
HO_TO_GSM_SHOULD_NOT_BE_PERFORM (HO to 2G allowed), the actual effective value is following the CN one and HO to
2G is allowed in this case.

RAB_ASS_REQ message from CN

Step-2 : Inter-Frequency Neighbor for Coverage-Based HO

Assuming inter-frequency
neighbors are existing, this
parameter specifies if it is
supporting coverage-based inter-
frequency handover and specifies
each neighbor's priority.
0: indicates that the coverage-based inter-frequency
handover is Not supported.

1: indicates that the inter-frequency neighbor cell is
assigned with the highest priority for handover.

2: indicates that the inter-frequency neighbor cell is
assigned with the medium priority for handover.

"3" :indicates that the inter-frequency neighbor cell is
assigned with the lowest priority for handover.

frequency neighbors & coverage-based HO flag is ON, then coverage-based inter-frequency HO is considered enabled for this
connection.

In case there are more than one cell within active set and if anyone (not necessarily the best cell) is configured with inter-

EVENT 2D TRIGGERING PARAMETER SELECTION CRITERIA
In Roshan 3G network coverage-based inter-frequency HO is Not allowed between F1 & F2 layers in macro sites. So in scenario
where only macro sites exist and UE initiates a 12.2kbps conversational service, 2D Triggering Parameter= Inter-RAT 2D
