CDMA and LTE Zero Bufferzone Feature Parameter
Description 2 Overview

2 Overview

2.1 Background
As networks evolve from CDMA to LTE, inter-RAT intra-frequency interference may occur at
the coverage edges of these two networks. To reduce the interference, the conventional
solution is to geographically isolate LTE coverage areas from CDMA coverage areas by
planning a buffer zone in between. However, LTE cells working on the same frequency as
nearby CDMA cells cannot be deployed in the buffer zone, which leads to a significant waste
of spectrum resources.
The CDMA and LTE Zero Bufferzone (LTE FDD) feature has been introduced to reduce this
waste of spectrum resources. This feature uses the spectrum resources in the buffer zone to
deploy LTE cells, improving spectral efficiency and eliminating the need to plan the buffer
zone.

2.2 Introduction
The CDMA and LTE Zero Bufferzone feature optimizes uplink and downlink scheduling for
LTE, reducing the inter-RAT intra-frequency interference between CDMA and LTE networks.
This feature involves the refarming of existing CDMA spectrum. Two concepts are
particularly important to understanding how the feature works: dedicated spectrum and shared
spectrum.
The relationship between dedicated and shared spectrums is illustrated in Figure 2-1 below,
using an LTE cell with a bandwidth of 5 MHz as an example.

NOTE

CDMA 1x is short for CDMA 1 times radio transmission technology and EV-DO for Evolution-Data
Optimized.

2.3 Benefits
Increasing LTE Network Capacity
This feature uses the shared spectrum in the buffer zone to deploy LTE cells, which increases
spectral efficiency and improves the network capacity and user experience for LTE.
Take a 10 MHz spectrum for example. The spectrum consists of the CDMA-dedicated
spectrum (5 MHz), the CDMA/LTE shared spectrum (one or two CDMA carriers), and the
LTE-dedicated spectrum. If this feature is not used, only a 1.4 or 3 MHz spectrum can be used
to deploy LTE cells in the buffer zone.
But with this feature, there will be a 5 MHz spectrum available to deploy LTE cells there. The
uplink and downlink capacities will be, respectively, 200% and 110% greater than when there
was only 1.4 MHz available. If there had originally been 3 MHz available for LTE
deployment, the respective uplink and downlink capacity gains will be 45% and 25%.

NOTE

The capacity gains mentioned above are obtained under the assumption that all remaining resource block
(RB) resources can be scheduled. On live networks, the capacity gains may decrease by up to 20%.

Eliminating the Buffer Zone


This feature eliminates the need to plan a buffer zone, simplifying CDMA-to-LTE refarming
and accelerating the evolution towards LTE.

CDMA and LTE Zero Bufferzone Feature Parameter
Description 3 Technical Description

3 Technical Description

3.1 Overview
The eNodeB determines whether an LTE UE is a cell edge user (CEU) or a cell center user
(CCU) based on the reference signal received power (RSRP) measured by the UE and the
feature configuration. The eNodeB then optimizes uplink and downlink scheduling for the
UE, which reduces the inter-RAT intra-frequency interference between CDMA and LTE
networks.
l If the eNodeB determines that a UE is CEU, the UE can occupy the RBs only on the
LTE-dedicated spectrum during physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) or physical
downlink shared channel (PDSCH) scheduling.
l If the eNodeB determines that a UE is CCU, the UE can occupy the RBs on both the
LTE-dedicated spectrum and shared spectrum during PUSCH or PDSCH scheduling.
The CDMA and LTE Zero Bufferzone feature is controlled by the AvoidCDMAInterfSwitch
option of the CellAlgoSwitch.AvoidInterfSwitch parameter.
This feature supports a maximum of two shared spectrums (in the buffer zone before this
feature is enabled), which are specified by the parameters in the CLZeroBufferzone MO.
The start RB position and end RB position of the first shared spectrum are specified by the
ClSharedFreqStartRb1 and ClSharedFreqEndRb1 parameters, respectively. The start RB
position and end RB position of the second shared spectrum are specified by the
ClSharedFreqStartRb2 and ClSharedFreqEndRb2 parameters, respectively.

3.2 Reducing PUSCH Interference


The eNodeB uses different PUSCH RB scheduling solutions for UEs based on the
configuration policy of the shared spectrum, the uplink physical resource block (PRB) usage,
and the UE location to reduce mutual interference between an LTE PUSCH and a CDMA
carrier. Figure 3-1 shows the PUSCH RB scheduling process.

LAOFD-0010 LTE-A Introduction When the CDMA and LTE Zero


01 Bufferzone feature is enabled in the
secondary cell (SCell) in CA
scenarios:
l LTE-A Introduction has the
following impacts on this feature
if the secondary carrier is
configured with downlink SCell
but not with uplink SCell: CA
UEs cannot estimate path loss
through uplink RSRP
measurement. As a result, the
eNodeB cannot determine whether
a CA UE is a CCU. Even though a
CA UE is a CCU, uplink and
downlink shared spectrums cannot
be scheduled.
l LTE-A Introduction has no impact
on this feature for non-CA UEs, if
the secondary carrier is configured
with both uplink SCell and
downlink SCell.

calibration and therefore affects the
performance of the Static Shared
Beam (SSB) function. The CDMA

not recommended for cells where
SSB is used.

MLOFD-1212 eMTC Introduction This feature does not take effect on


80 eMTC UEs when CDMA and LTE
Zero Bufferzone (LTE FDD) is
enabled. Co-channel interference may
occur between neighboring CDMA
and LTE sites because the uplink or
downlink scheduling for eMTC UEs
is not restricted.

System Capacity
l Impact on LTE system capacity
See Increasing LTE Network Capacity in 2.3 Benefits.
l Impact on CDMA system capacity
Both uplink and downlink capacities may decrease by 5% to 15%.

Network Performance
If there is no inter-RAT intra-frequency interference between CDMA and LTE networks
before feature activation, activating this feature may generate the interference.

The data rates of LTE UEs at the coverage edge may decrease because the PDCCH
experiences more interference and the coverage area of the LTE cell shrinks. To avoid this
problem, configure CDMA pilot beacons (PBs) to isolate the interference or hand over the
LTE UEs at the coverage edge to LTE high-frequency cells quickly.

This feature will expand the bandwidth available to LTE cells operating in the buffer zone
from 1.4 or 3 MHz to 5 MHz. The following KPIs will improve for these cells:
l Cell Downlink Average Throughput
l Cell Uplink Average Throughput
l User Downlink Average Throughput
l User Uplink Average Throughput

This feature will have a negative impact on the following KPIs, for LTE cells operating in the
buffer zone with 5 MHz of bandwidth instead of 1.4 or 3 MHz:
l E-RAB Setup Success Rate[%]
l Call Drop Rate[%]
l Intra-frequency Handover Out Success Rate[%]
l Inter-frequency Handover Out Success Rate[%]

The last four KPIs may deteriorate by 5% to 10%.

This feature will have a negative impact on the following KPIs for CDMA cells:

6 Engineering Guidelines

6.1 When to Use


This feature is recommended if all the following conditions are met:
l CDMA-to-LTE refarming is required.
l At least 3 MHz of contiguous spectrum is available in the buffer zone.
l The proportion of the LTE-dedicated spectrum to all spectrum is greater than or equal to
50%.
For example, there are four CDMA carriers. If two of them work in the shared spectrum
and the other two carriers work in the LTE-dedicated spectrum after CDMA-to-LTE
refarming, then the proportion of the LTE-dedicated spectrum to all spectrum is 50%.
NOTE

It is recommended that the number of consecutive RBs on the LTE-dedicated spectrum be greater
than or equal to 12 in 3 MHz scenarios.
l The inter-site distance is greater than 1 km.
If the inter-site distance is less than or equal to 1 km, network performance may
deteriorate due to the mutual interference between CDMA and LTE. This is because
there is a small difference in the loss between the path from the UE to the serving cell
and that from the UE to the neighboring cell.

6.3 Planning

6.3.1 RF Planning
Before feature activation, plan the buffer zone based on the engineering parameters and the
operator's CDMA and LTE spectrum usage rules. Buffer zone planning is the same as normal
CDMA-to-LTE refarming planning. For details, contact Huawei technical support. The
following are the recommendations for RF planning:

l It is recommended that spectrum distribution be performed for CDMA-to-LTE refarming


in the following order: LTE-dedicated spectrum, shared spectrum, and CDMA-dedicated
spectrum.
l It is recommended that the proportion of the LTE-dedicated spectrum be greater than or
equal to 50% and that the number of consecutive RBs on the LTE-dedicated spectrum be
greater than or equal to 12 in 3 MHz scenarios. This is to prevent LTE uplink resource
insufficiency due to a large difference between the shared spectrum and the LTE-
dedicated spectrum.
l For a CDMA cell where there is a PB at the coverage edge, it is recommended that you
keep the PB. For a CDMA cell where there is no PB, it is recommended that you
configure a PB at the coverage edge to improve the KPIs.
l This feature is recommended if the spectrum in which the CDMA intra-frequency carrier
is at the edge of the LTE spectrum, as shown in Figure 6-1, Figure 6-2, and Figure 6-3.

6.3.3 Hardware Planning


5 MHz LTE is used as an example. The bandwidth of one CDMA carrier is 1.23 MHz, and the
bandwidth of four CDMA carriers is only 4.92 MHz. Therefore, the non-standard bandwidth
scenario is involved. In dual-mode scenarios, radio frequency (RF) modules must support the
Compact Bandwidth feature. At present, only the CRFUe and RRU3653 support the Compact
Bandwidth feature in CDMA/LTE dual-mode scenarios.
In LTE-only scenarios, 5 MHz LTE can be configured directly. There is no special
requirement for RF modules.

After this feature is activated, the uplink and downlink throughputs of the LTE cell and the
uplink PRB usage and downlink PRB usage may be low. Also, the uplink RSSI and KPIs of
the CDMA intra-frequency neighboring cell may deteriorate significantly. If either of these
events occurs, optimize the parameters listed in Table 6-7.

opposite results. However, if this parameter is set to a too
small value, mutual interference between adjacent sites
sharing CDMA frequencies increases, which deteriorates
the uplink performance.
