Purpose

The purpose of this document is as follows:

To provide a cross reference between the Bosch OMC, Lucent OMC 2000 GUI, Lucent OMC 2000 AUI and GSM Standardterminology.

The user is given a more detailed description of system parameters than those contained in the OMC 2000 User Documentation. This is to assist in routine work that involves management of the BSS parameters (which are controlled from the OMC 2000)

The following table describes the fields that are defined:

Section Title

GSM Name of parameter

Default

A meaningful default value that is used or could be used

Range

The value range of the parameter

Range Semantics

The semantics of the parameter value, e.g. mapping of integers to dB values.

GSM 12.20 Class:

GSM 12.20 Attribute:

- The number of the most recent downlink power level measurement values concerning the serving cell and the neighbouring cells, which are used in the power budget averaging procedure for handover. The averaged measurement values are normally given every SACCH block period by the averaging procedure. The bigger the window size (number of measurements) is, the more precise the values of the averaged parameters are. When the values are not precise enough, the probability of an incorrect handover decision will increase. However, a too big window size can cause a delayed handover decision, and so dragging the call. It could cause bad quality and a higher interference probability due to the an unnecessary increased transmit power of the currently serving base station.

Dependency:

access classes from making access attempts (including emergency call attempts) or responding to paging messages in the specified area. The use of this facility allows the network operator to prevent overload of the cell under critical conditions. It is not intended that access control be used under normal operating conditions. The integers specified define the classes inaccessible to the MS. The access classes the MS is allowed to use are stored on its Subscriber Identity Module (SIM). If the access for a certain class is barred, this is no reason for an MS for cell reselection, i.e. the MS can not access the network. If there is an overload on the RACH, it should be tried prior of barring an access class to reduce the number of access attempts by decreasing parameter 'MAX_RETRANS'.

Dependency:

making access attempts (including emergency call attempts) or responding to paging messages in the specified area. The use of this facility allows to recover from overload. The MS stores the access control class on its Subscriber Identity Module (SIM). If the access for a certain class is barred, MSs with that class may only try to get a connection in the neighbour cells. Automatic barring is done by the BSS in case of overload. Depending on the severity of overload the BSS starts with barring access classes 0-9 with random starting class and step size M1 (unbarring with step size M2). If classes 0-9 are barred and there is still an overload situation, the BSS continues barring with access classes 10-15. The barring sequence for access classes 10-15 is given in parameter 'Barring Sequence' and the step size in N1 (unbar: N2). The timer T17 (MAP-Timer) and T18 (MAP- Timer) are used for barring resp. unbarring. Automatic barring can be enabled/disabled with flag EN_ACC_BARRING.

Dependency:

block contains paging messages or access grants. Every PCH can be used by the system as AGCH, but it is not allowed to the system to use AGCH-blocks to transmit paging requests. However, to ensure a mobile satisfactory access to the system, a variable number of the available blocks in each 51-multiframe can be reserved for access grants only. BS_AG_BLKS_RES gives the number of blocks reserved and is broadcast on the BCCH. It is useful, to set this parameter to the smallest value and let the system organise the channel usage. In the case of Mobile Originated Calls more AGCHs will be needed, in the case of Mobile Terminated Calls the necessity for PCHs increases. In the average, the number of Mobile Originated Calls is very much higher than the number of Mobile Terminated Calls. If this parameter is chosen too high with the result of a PCH-shortage in the case of high traffic density, there may arise an overload-indication of the PCH. See also CH_TYPE Range depends on CH_TYPE of BCCH channel:

  • - 0-7: if BCCH channel is of type mainBCCH

  • - 0-2: if BCCH channel is of type mainBCCHCombined

  • - 1-2: if BCCH channel is of type mainBCCHCombinedCB

increased too with the advantage that idle subscribers have to be less active. BS_PA_MFRMS should be chosen in an appropriate way. If the value is too small, there may be an overload due to a shortage of paging channels. If the value is too high so that the time between two paging calls is high, it may occur an overload situation in the paging queue in the BSS. The available paging blocks per CCCH is determined by the BCCH channel type (9 in case of mainBCCH, 3 in case of mainBCCHCombined) reduced by BS_AG_BLKS_RES (number of blocks reserved for access grant) and this multiplied with BS_PA_MFRMS + 2.

If the attribute is set to 'No predecessor cell', then the BTS is the first BTS in the chain. If different objects BTS have the same 'predecessor cell', then they form a multicell site (not in case of RBS900). At the GUI the attribute 'BTS Position' can be set to one of the values "Predecessor Cell", "Connected to BSC" or "Prodecessor Unknown". If "Predecessor Cell" is selected the attribute 'Predessor Cell' has to be set to the distinguished name of the predecessor BTS. At the AUI the attribute 'PRDBTSUNDEF' defines whether the BTS position is known (value 'false') or not known (value 'true'). If the position is known the attribute 'PRDBTS' has to be set to an empty string if the BTS is connected directly to the BSC, or set to the distinguished name of the predecessor BTS if the BTS is connected to another BTS. -

On assignment the Cdos counter is started from 0 and is incremented by 1 for every SACCH multiframe. If a mandatory handover is requested and the Cdos counter is greater than the threshold defined by C_MICRO_HO but less than the threshold defined by C_MICRO_DELAYED_HO the resulting handover shall be performed with preference to Middle Layer cells. If a handover is triggered and the Cdos counter has reached the threshold defined by C_MICRO_DELAYED_HO the resulting handover shall be performed with preference to Lower Layer cells. On call set-up in a Lower Layer cell, the Cdos counter is set to its threshold value, C_MICRO_DELAYED_HO, and the MS is immediately considered to be 'slow' moving (i.e. first handover after call set-up will be performed with preference to a neighbouring Lower Layer cell). For MS served by Lower Layer cells, power budget handover (PBGT_HOs) are only permitted once the MS has been classified as slow moving, i.e. Cdos > C_MICRO_DELAYED_HO See also: C_MICRO_HO, CELL_TYPE, C_UMBRELLA_MICRO_HO Typically: C_MICRO_DELAYED_HO > C_MICRO_HO

Dependency:

(i.e. after an intercell handover) the duration of stay of the MS in the serving cell is measured using the Cdos counter. On assigment the Cdos counter is started from 0 and incremented by 1 for every SACCH multiframe. For Lower and Middle Layer Cell the following holds: If a mandatory handover is requested and the Cdos counter is less than the threshold defined by C_MICRO_HO the resulting handover shall be performed with preference into Upper Layer cells. A handover into an adjacent lower layer cell is only allowed if a target cell of the higher hierarchical cell layer (Upper or Middle Layer) is not available. For Middle Layer Cells the following holds: If a mandatory handover is requested and the Cdos counter has reached the C_MICRO_HO threshold the resulting handover shall be performed with preference to neighbouring Middle Layer cells (assuming the cdosnc(i) counter has not reached its C_UMBRELLA_MICRO_HO threshold, in which case a 'layer down' handover to a neighbouring Lower Layer cell will be performed). For Lower Layer Cells the following holds: If a mandatory handover is requested and the Cdos counter is greater than the threshold defined by C_MICRO_HO but less than the threshold defined by C_MICRO_DELAYED_HO the resulting handover shall be performed with preference into Middle Layer cells. A handover into an adjacent Lower Layer cell is only allowed if a target cell of the higher hierarchical cell layer (Middle Layer preferred) is not available At call set-up on a Lower or Middle Layer cell, the Cdos counter is set to its threshold value for that particular layer, C_MICRO_DELAYED_HO (for Lower Layer cells) and C_MICRO_HO (for Middle Layer cells). The first handover encountered after call set-up will be performed with preference to neighbouring cells of the same layer.
