Dynamic Power Sharing Enlarging Site Coverage


The sum of each TRX configured maximum output power is bigger than PA maximum output power.
In the area with little traffic, BCCH carrier power configuration can be appropriately added by taking use

of dynamic power, and the remaining power is dynamically real-time shared among all TCH carriers to
enlarge coverage and reduce site quantity.
