2 System Parameters
The CDMA 1X and EV-DO system messages include the QuickConfig message, Sector
Parameters message, Sync message, Access Parameters message, Redirect message, and
BroadcastReverseRateLimit message. Among these messages, the QuickConfig message is
used to indicate a change in the air interface message and to provide frequently changing
parameters such as the color code. The SectorParameter message is used to convey specific
sector information such as the information about neighboring cells. The Sync message is used
to convey the information about the versions supported by the system, PNoffset, and system
time. The AccessParameters message is used to convey the information about the access
channel, such as the parameters used in open loop power control, the size of packets
transmitted on the access channel, the length of the preamble. The Redirect message is used to
redirect the terminals to a different network other than the current network. The
BroadcastReverseRateLimit message is used to limit the maximum reverse transmission rate
of all terminals working on a specific carrier. This chapter describes the parameters conveyed
in the QuickConfig and SectorParameters messages. For the parameters conveyed in other
messages, refer to the description in other chapters.
2.1 QuickConfig Message
2.1.1 Color Code (COLORCODE)
Description
This parameter specifies the 8-bit binary number. It identifies a subnet and is applicable only
to EV-DO networks.

RMV DOCS
Value Range
0 to 255.
Default Value
None. The default value can be set according to actual situations.
Setting Tradeoff
None.
Remarks
SectorID104 uniquely identifies a subnet. To save air interface resources, the protocol uses an
8-bit color code to replace SectorID104. The mappings between SectorID104 and color
codes are specified in the MOD DOCS command.
Figure 2-1 shows the mappings between SectorID128 and color code.
Figure 2-1 Mappings between SectorID128 and color code



A color code uniquely identifies a subnet in the AN. To be more specific, the color codes of subnets in
the same AN or different ANs must be different from each other. Before adding a CDMA2000 EV-DO
carrier or an neighboring AN, you must add the mapping between color codes and SECTORID104. To
change the color code of a carrier, you need to ensure that the new color code has been configured
because the change of the color code leads to the release of all ongoing sessions in the subnet.

Remarks
Identified by SectorID128, the AN can be configured with multiple subnets. SectorID128 is
delivered through the QuickConfig message. Changing SECTORID24 leads to the release of
all ongoing sessions in the subnet.
2.1.3 Redirect (DOREDIRECT)
Description
This parameter determines whether an access network (AN) is allowed to redirect an access
terminal (AT) to other networks.
Type

2.2 SectorParameters Message
2.2.1 Subnet Mask (SUBNETMASK)
Description
This parameter is a 128-bit binary. From this parameter, the number of the subnet can be
obtained. If this number changes, this indicates that the AT moves to a new subnet.
Type
Ordinary air interface parameter of the carrier level, specified in the SubnetMask field in the
SectorParameters message.
Related Commands
MOD DOSPM
LST DOSPM
Value Range
0 to 104.
Default Value
104.
Setting Tradeoff
None.
Remarks
The AT obtains SectorID128 and Subnet Mask of the current sector from the system
message and performs the AND calculation to obtain the address of the subnet to which the
current sector belongs. Then, the AT performs the AND calculation based on UATI and UATI
Subnet Mask that are stored on it to obtain the address of the subnet to which the AT belongs.
If the two addresses are the same, this indicates that the AT resides within the subnet. If the
two addresses are not the same or Subnet Mask is not equal to UATI Subnet Mask, this
indicates that the AT resides beyond the subnet.

0, which indicates that distance based route update is not performed
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a high value, the AT sends a RouteUpdate message only after it
moves a long distance. Thus, the route is not updated timely. If this parameter is set to a low
value, the AT frequently sends the RouteUpdate message. This may cause wastage of
resources.
Remarks
The settings of ROUTEUP are based on rm x ro + ra, where rm is the attribute of
RouteUpdateRadiusMultiply, ro is the route update radius, and ra is the attribute of
RouteUpdateRadiusAdd. The attributes of RouteUpdateRadiusMultiply and
RouteUpdateRadiusAdd are obtained through GAUP negotiation.
The formula to calculate distance r is as follows:


In this formula, x

Remarks
RouteUpdateTriggerCode is similar to the RegZone mechanism in 1X networks. It can be
used as a method for triggering registration. The AN carries RouteUpdateTriggerCode and
RouteUpdateTriggerMaxAge in the SectorParameters message. RouteUpdateTriggerCode
indicates the carrier code, and RouteUpdateTriggerMaxAge indicates the lifecycle of the
code. The AT stores the code list RouteUpdateTriggerCodeList, each entry of which is
(Subnet, RouteUpdateTriggerCode). The list length RouteUpdateTriggerCodeListSize is
determined through negotiation between the AN and the AT. It ranges from 1 to 5. In idle
mode, the AT maintains the list and triggers the RouteUpdate message according to the
following principles:
1. Entries (except those added to the list at a time) that exist in the list for more than
2
(RouteUpdateTriggerMaxAge + 3)
x 1.28 seconds are deleted from the list.
2. If the items added to the list lately exist in the list for more than 2
(RouteUpdateTriggerMaxAge + 3)

x 1.28 seconds, the timer restarts.
3. After an idle handoff is complete, if the (Subnet, RouteUpdateTriggerCode) entries
received from the new carries are not in the list RouteUpdateTriggerCodeList, these
entries are added to the list, the corresponding timer is initialized to 0, and the
RouteUpdate message is sent. If the list length exceeds the value of
RouteUpdateTriggerCodeListSize, the AT deletes the earliest entry to retain the list
length within the limit of RouteUpdateTriggerCodeListSize.
2.2.12 Route Update Trigger Max Age
(ROUTEUPDATETRGMAXAGE)
Description
This parameter specifies the maximum time that the items can be kept in the route update
trigger list. When an entity exists in the route update trigger list for more than
2
RouteUpdateTriggerMaxAge
x 1.28 seconds, the entity is deleted from the route update trigger code
list. The items added to the list lately are excluded.

If this parameter is set to a great value, the AT sends the RouteUpdate messages to update the
route less frequently in the boundary areas. In this case, the load on the access channel is
reduced but this may lead to delay of route update. If this parameter is set to a small value, the
AT frequently sends the RouteUpdate message in the boundary areas. Thus, the load on the
access channel increases.
Remarks

21

Default Value
NO.
Setting Tradeoff
When the AN contains the PriorSessionGAUP field, the AN sets PriorSessionGAUP to 0 if
it does not want to include the PriorSession attribute in the Attribute Update Request
message, or the AN sets PriorSessionGAUP to 1 if it wants to include the PriorSession
attribute in the Attribute Update Request message. If the overhead message protocol does not
contain PriorSessionGAUP or contains PriorSessionGAUP=0, the AT does not include the
PriorSession attribute in the AttributeUpdateRequest message. If the overhead message
protocol contains PriorSessionGAUP=1, the AT includes the PriorSession attribute in the
AttributeUpdateRequest message.
Remarks
The generic attribute update protocol (GAUP) is a new protocol used in the EV-DO Rev A. It
enables dynamic configuration and update of attributes (such as update of the information
about IPFLOW, configuration and reconfiguration of IPFLOW, exiting of IPFLOW) without
disconnection of links. In normal cases, the configuration and exiting of the GAUP is initiated
by the AT by updating the ReservationKKQosRequestFwd/Rev attribute. If the
UATIRequest message that is sent by the AT when the AT enters another subnet contains the
RATI, the AT can initiate the PriorSession negotiation during the session negotiation process
to request for the original session attributes. In this way, the configuration and negotiation
process is simplified (if the AT uses the original session attributes, the AN can obtain sessions
through session migration).
2.3 Configuration of the Session Protocol
2.3.1 Session Close Timer (TSMPCLOSE)
Description
This parameter specifies the time length for a session to be kept on the AT and AN when there
are no signaling and service exchange. Both the AT and AN monitor service flows on the
forward and reverse channels. If the AT or AN receives no signaling or service exchange
during the TSMPClose or NSMPKeepAlive minutes, the AT or AN sends the
KeepAliveRequest message. After the AN or AT receives the KeepAliveRequest message, the
AN or AT responds with the KeepAliveResponse message. If there are no responses to the
KeepAliveRequest message for NSMPKeepAlive consecutive times, the AT or AN sends a
message to request for the session to be released.
Type
Global air interface parameter, specified in the TSMPClose field of the Configuration Request
message during the configuration and negotiation of the session protocol.

If this parameter is set to a high value, the time length for a session to be retained on the AN
and AT is long. In this case, the resources of the AT are wasted. If this parameter is set to a
low value, old sessions are frequently released and new sessions are frequently established. In
this case, the load on the system is high.
Remarks
The PARC platform supports a maximum of five SMUs, and each SMU supports 400, 000
sessions. The MUSA platform supports 350, 000 sessions if the EPU is used, or supports 110,

MOD DOCCHP
LST DOCCHP
Value Range
RATE76K8 (76.8 kbit/s), or RATE38K4 (38.4 kbit/s).
Default Value

Setting Tradeoff
The control channel data rate is a balance between the reliability of the control channel and
the number of slots required for transmission of the control channel information. A 38.4 kbit/s
control channel is more reliable than a 76.8 kbit/s control channel. The 38.4 kbit/s control
channel uses 16 timeslots to send a data packet. The 76.8 kbit/s control channel uses 8
timeslots to send a data packet (this can improve the capacity of the control channel and the
traffic channel and the general data throughput but may decrease the coverage of the control
channel).

The AN uses the control channel to send general messages and user indication messages to the
AT. General messages include the QuickConfig, SPM, Syn, APM,
BroadCastReverseRateLimit, and Redirect messages. User indication messages include the
TCA, UATIAssignment, and HardwareIDRequest message.
3.1.2 CCH Capsule Offset (CAPSULEOFFSET)
Description
This parameter specifies the offset of the synchronous control channel cycle to the control
channel cycle, as shown in Figure 3-1. With the offset, the start time of a control channel
capsule of a sector can be different from the start time of a control channel capsule of an
adjacent sector. This reduces interference generated when the AT demodulates the
synchronization control channels of the sectors and increases the probability of correct
demodulation of the synchronous control capsules by the AT.

Value Range
0 to 3, measured in timeslots.
Default Value
0.
Setting Tradeoff
Different offsets should be configured for two adjacent sectors. This can prevent synchronous
transmission of the synchronization channels of the two adjacent sectors, thus avoiding
interference between capsules of the synchronization channels of the two adjacent sectors.
Remarks
The parameter is specified by the AN in the Offset field of the control channel header of the
first control channel MAC layer packet that is contained in the synchronous packet.
The AN should transmit MAC layer packets of a synchronous capsule on the control channel
in the following ways:
1. The transmission of the first MAC layer packet of the synchronous capsule is started at
the time T. T meets the following equation: T mod 256 = Offset.
2. The transmission of the rest MAC layer packets of the synchronous capsule is started at
the first T after the previous packet is transmitted. T meets the following equation: T
mod 4 = Offset.
T is the CDMA system time measured in timeslots. The offset is the specified offset
value in the control channel capsule header of the first control channel MAC layer packet
in the synchronous capsule.

3.1.3 DRC Lock Period (DRCLockPeriod)
Description
This parameter specifies the number of timeslots between two continuous DRCLock bits that
are transmitted on the forward MAC channel.
As defined in protocols, this parameter can be set to the following values.

Value Range
Slots8 (8 timeslots), or Slots16 (16 timeslots).
Default Value
Slots16.
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to 0, the AN can quickly report the changes of the DRCLock Bit value
and timely respond to the changes, but the rate of the RPC channel decreases. If this
parameter is set to 1, the reliability for the AT to correctly receive DRCLock information is
improved.
Remarks
The DRCLock channel is used for the AN to send DRCLock information to the AT. This
parameter is specified in the DRCLockPeriod field of the DRCLock property table when the
forward traffic channel MAC protocol configures negotiation. The DRCLock channel and the
RPC channel are time-division multiplexed. They are transmitted on the same MAC channel.
The DRCLock channel is inserted into the RPC channel once each 8 or 16 timeslots, and this
process is repeated for DRCLockLength times, as shown in Figure 3-2. The data rate of the
DRCLock channel is 600/(DRCLockLength x DRCLockPeriod) bit/s, and the data rate of the
RPC channel is 600 x (1 1/DRCLockPeriod) bit/s.

Figure 3-2 DRCLock bit transmission


The AT processes the DRCLock bits received from the DRCLock channel according to the
forward traffic channel protocol. Then according to SofterHandoff specified in the route
update protocol, the AT decides whether to enable two different sectors to transmit the same
DRCLock bit. If the AT receives the DRCLock bit from the sector to which the AT's DRC
directs and which is set to 0, the AT should stop directing its DRC to the sector.
3.1.4 Default Protocol DRC Lock Length (DRCLockLength)

short, and the lock status of the channel can be updated in time. The reliability of the
DRCLock bit transmission, however, is very low. If this parameter is set to a high value, the
time that the DRCLock bit requires to change is long, but the reliability of the DRCLock bit
transmission is improved.

Setting Tradeoff
When this parameter is set to 0, this indicates that the DRC value requested by the AT is
determined on the basis of C/I. A greater value may reduce the forward throughput because
the types of packet sizes that are selected by the AN and are used for forward data
transmission are limited. A smaller value cannot satisfy the QoS requirements of the services
requiring that the PER of the physical layer must greatly lower than 1%.

4 Paging and Access Parameters
4.1 Paging Parameters
4.1.1 Small Slot Cycle Allowed (SMALLSLTALLOW)
Description
This parameter determines whether the short-timeslot period is allowed, that is, whether the
value of SlotCycle 1 can be smaller than 6.
Type
Globally configured negotiation parameter, specified in the simple attribute
SmallSlotCycleAllowed of the enhanced idle state protocol for configuration negotiation.
Related Commands
MOD DOGCNPA
LST DOGCNPA
Value Range
YES, or NO.
Default Value
YES.
Setting Tradeoff
If the short-timeslot period is allowed, the paging duration is shorter, but the number of times
for the AT interception is increased, and the standby duration is shorter.
Remarks
For the 1XEV-DO REV. A, the period and timeslot for the AT to intercept the control channel
complies with the following formula:

44

(T + 256 x R) mod Period = offset
The following figure shows the formula for calculating the value of Period.


When the value of slotcycle is 6, the value of Period is (26) x 4= 256 slots, the value of T is
offset + 256 x n, the period of the control channel of the system is 256 slots, and thus the Page
message is delivered through the synchronization control channel. When the value of
slotcycle is greater than 6, the value of T is offset + 256 x n. Therefore, the Page message is
delivered through the synchronization control channel when the value of slotcycle is equal to
or greater than 6.
When the value of slotcycle is 5, the value of Period is (25) x 4= 128 slots, the value of T is
offset + 128 x n, and thus the period of the control channel of the system is 256 slots. When n
= 1 and T = 128 + offset, the value of T is smaller than 256, and thus it is the same as the time
of a sub-synchronization control channel. Therefore, the Page message can be delivered
through this sub-synchronization control channel. Similarly, when the value of slotcycle is
small than 6, the Page message may be delivered through a sub-synchronization control
channel.
4.1.2 Access Hashing Class Mask (ACCHASHCLASSMASK)
Description
This parameter specifies the access Hash type mask. This parameter and the
AccessHashingChannelMask parameter determine the input of the Hash algorithm of the
1XEV-DO REV. A AT, and thus determine which frequency (in the frequency list) where the
AT resides.
Type

enhanced idle state protocol for configuration negotiation.
Related Commands
MOD DOGCNPA
LST DOGCNPA
Value Range
0 to 28 (unit: none)
Default Value
9.
Setting Tradeoff
When the value is small, the interval for the AT to intercept the paging channel is short, and
the paging delay becomes short. In this case, the number of times for the AT interception,
however, increases, and the standby duration decreases.
The value is related to waking times, which determines the length of the time segment, Period
1, Period 2, and Period 3. If the timeslot period is short, and waking times is great, the AT
standby duration is greatly affected. Therefore, the timeslot period and the waking times
should be balanced.
Remarks
The 1X&EV-DO Rev. A enhanced idle state protocol specifies that the AT in the idle state has
three time segments. In the time segments, the interception periods can be different. The time
segments are calculated through T
12
and T
23
. The following figure shows the relevant
formulas.

Value Range
1 to 15 (unit: times).
Default Value
5.
Setting Tradeoff
A greater value reduces the number of access attempt failures that are caused by the poor
reverse link. If an access attempt failure is caused by collisions, the power of the succeeding
access probe in an access probe sequence is high, and the interference on the reverse link may
be higher. The access attempt failures caused by collisions are reduced.
Remarks
The settings of PWRSTEP and PRBNUMSTEP are related. When PWRSTEP is set to a
smaller value, PRBNUMSTEP should be set to a greater value. If PWRSTEP is set to a
greater value, PRBNUMSTEP should be set to a smaller value.
4.2.7 Power Step (PWRSTEP)
Description
This parameter specifies the increased power of an access probe in an access sequence,
compared with the power of last access probe. The AT transmits the pilot channel of probe i in
the probe sequence at the power of X0 + (i 1) x PowerStep. In this expression, X0 indicates
average open-loop output power of the AT pilot channel.

Value Range
Hexadecimal numeral containing a maximum of two digits. The maximum value is 0x3F
indicating that the access is not allowed.
Default Value
0x0.
Setting Tradeoff
A greater value reduces the PD pass ratio and prolongs the time for sending an access probe,
but reduces the probability of access probe collisions. A smaller value is recommended in the
earlier stage of network construction because the access load is low, thus shortening the
access duration. When the network access load becomes higher, a greater value is
recommended to reduce the number of access collisions and ensure the access success rate.

Remarks
The AT performs the PD before sending the first probe of the sequence. This process is as
follows: Generate random number x (0 < x < 1) distributed equally, and compare it with
persistence probability p. If the value of x is smaller than that of p, the PD is performed
successfully. If the number of successful PDs or PD failures is more than 4/p, the AT sends the
first probe of the sequence within the access channel period. Otherwise, the AT repeats the
preceding PDs from the next access channel period when the value of p is not 0. If the value
of p is 0, the AT cannot access the network.

Setting Tradeoff
A greater value improves the AT access success rate and shortens the access duration, but
increases the reverse power consumption of the AT and the reverse interference of the system,
and reduces the reverse capacity of the system.
Remarks
For the 1XEV-DO REV. A AT, this parameter has a higher priority over the PreambleLength
parameter, that is, the AT uses the access probe preamble length defined by this parameter that
is negotiated. Otherwise, the AT uses the access probe preamble length defined by the

Setting Tradeoff
If the value of this parameter is very large, the SHO threshold increases. In such cases, the
SHO area decreases and the SHO ratio decreases, but SHOs may be delayed and coverage
dead zone may appear. If the value of this parameter is very small, the SHO threshold
decreases. In such cases, the SHO area increases, and the SHO ratio increases.
Remarks
The AT reports the RouteUpdate message according to the following principles:
1. The strength of the pilot in the neighbor set is greater than PilotAdd. Additionally, no
RouteUpdate message containing the preceding information (the strength of the pilot in
the neighbor set is greater than PilotAdd) is reported after the latest ResetReport
message is received.
2. The difference between the strength of the pilot in the candidate set and the strength of
the pilot in the active set is greater than PilotCompare. Additionally, no RouteUpdate
message containing the preceding information (the difference between the strength of the
pilot in the candidate set and the strength of the pilot in the active set is greater than
PilotCompare) is reported after the latest ResetReport message is received.
3.
4. The strength of the pilot in the active set ranges from PilotDropTimer to PilotDrop.
Additionally, no RouteUpdate message containing the preceding information (the
strength of the pilot in the active set ranges from PilotDropTimer to PilotDrop) is
reported after the latest ResetReport message is received.

Setting Tradeoff
If the value of this parameter is very small, the AT frequently sends the RouteUpdate message,
resulting in frequent SHOs. If the value of this parameter is very large, the AT fails to report
the RouteUpdate message in time, resulting in delayed handoffs.
Remarks
For details, refer to the remarks of PILOTADD.
5.1.5 Same Channel Parameters Pilot Drop (PILOTDROP)
Description
This parameter specifies the threshold of the smallest pilot strength at which the drop timer is
started. When the strength of a pilot in an active set or a candidate set is smaller than the
threshold, the AT starts a pilot drop timer. If the pilot strength is greater than the PilotDrop
value before the timer expires, the timer is restarted.

If the value of this parameter is very large, available pilots are removed from the active set
and they may become reverse interference signals among the signals in the active set. If the
value of this parameter is very small, SHO threshold is lower, and a pilot in an active set is
difficult to be removed from the active set. Thus, the SHO ratio increases.
Remarks
For details, refer to the remarks of PILOTADD.
5.1.6 Same Channel Parameters Pilot Drop Timer
(PILOTDROPTIMER)
Description
This parameter specifies the duration of the intra-frequency pilot drop timer. When the
strength of the pilots in the active set or candidate set is smaller than the [Pilot Drop
Threshold (PILOTDROP)], the AT enables the pilot drop timer according to the value of
this parameter. When the pilot drop timer for a pilot in the active set expires, the AT sends the
RouteUpdate message. When the timer for a pilot in the candidate set expires, the AT moves
the pilot to a neighbor set.
Type

Setting Tradeoff
If the value of this parameter is very large, the pilot with a small strength in the active set
resides for a long time. In this way, the SHO ratio increases and some forward traffic channels
are wasted. If the value of this parameter is very small, when the strength of a pilot in the
active set fluctuates normally and the strength becomes smaller temporarily, the pilot may be
removed from the active set. In this way, the parameter cannot play the function of handoff
hysteresis. Hence, handoffs frequently occur.
Remarks
When [Dynamic Threshold Included] is set to YES, the comparison between pilot strength
and [Pilot Drop Threshold] is one of the conditions to enable and disable the pilot drop timer.

Setting Tradeoff
If the strength of the pilots in the active set does not change, the smaller the value of this
parameter is, the higher the dynamic adding threshold and dynamic removing threshold will
be. In such cases, adding a pilot to the active set is more difficult but removing a pilot from
the active set is easier. Thus, the SHO ratio decreases, however, the SHO gains cannot be fully
used. The larger the value of this parameter is, the lower the dynamic adding threshold and
dynamic removing threshold will be. In such cases, the SHO ratio increases.
Remarks
If the dynamic SHO is enabled, and the pilot strength (PS) of the neighbor set or the
remaining set satisfies the following inequation, the AT sends the RouteUpdate message.

Value Range
32 to 31 (unit: dB).
Default Value

Setting Tradeoff
The smaller the value of this parameter is, the lower the dynamic adding threshold will be,
and the easier it will be to add neighbor pilots to the active set. In such cases, SHO ratio
increases. The larger the value of this parameter is, the higher the dynamic adding threshold
will be, and the harder it will be to add neighboring pilots to the active set. In such cases, the
SHO ratio decreases, and the SHO gains cannot be fully used. In such cases, the reverse
performance may increase.
Remarks
For detatils, refer to the remarks of SOFTSLOPE.
5.1.10 Same Channel Parameters Drop Intercept

Setting Tradeoff
The smaller the value of this parameter is, the lower the dynamic SHO threshold will be. In
such cases, the SHO ratio increases. The larger the value of this parameter is, the higher the
dynamic threshold will be. In such cases, the SHO ratio decreases, and the SHO gains cannot
be fully used.
Remarks
If DynamicThresholds is set to YES, the AT performs the following operations:
According to the strengths of pilots, the AT arranges the pilots in the active set in an
ascending order, that is, PS1< PS2<PS3<......< PSNa. Na represents the number of pilots in
the active set. When the strength of PSi satisfies the following inequation, the AT starts the
timer.


If the strength of PSi does not satisfy this inequation, the AT restarts and disables the timer
before the PilotDropTimer timer expires.
5.1.11 Same Channel Parameters Neighbor Max Age
(NBRMAXAGE)
Description
This parameter specifies the maximum lifetime of the intra-frequency pilots in the neighbor
set. The AT has a counter for each pilot in the neighbor set. When the AT receives a Neighbor
List Update Message (NLUM), the AT increases the counters of the original pilots in the
neighbor set by 1. If the counter value exceeds this parameter value, the AT removes this pilot
from the neighbor set. If the parameter value is set to 0, each time the AT receives an NLUM,
the AT removes all pilots in the original neighbor set so that the AT uses the contents in the
latest NLUM. If the value is set to 2, when a pilot that is moved from the active set or
candidate set to the neighbor set is not in two successive NLUMs, this pilot is removed from
the neighbor set.

SetManagementSameChannelParameters table when route update protocol configures
negotiation.
Related Commands
MOD DOCNPA
LST DOCNPA
Value Range
0 to 15.
Default Value
0.
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a great value, a pilot excluded from the active set or candidate set
can stay a longer time in the neighbor set, so it is possible that new neighboring pilots in the
NLUM will be excluded from the neighbor set of the AT (when the number of pilots exceeds
the maximum of pilots in the neighbor set of the AT). If this parameter is set to 0, each time
the AT receives the NLUM, the AT takes the neighbor pilot list in the NLUM for a new pilot
neighbor set. If there are many neighboring cells, set the parameter to 0. This ensures that the
AT always uses the neighboring pilot contents of the latest NLUM delivered by the BSC.
Remarks
The AT keeps a counter (AGE) for each pilot in neighbor set, and proceeds as follows:
Add the pilot deleted from active set but not added to candidate set and the AGE is set to 0.
For the pilot deleted from candidate set but not added to active set, the AGE is set to 0.
If the neighbor set size exceeds the maximum neighboring cell number supported by the AT,
the AT removes enough pilots based on descending sequence of AGE so that neighbor set size
is equal to maximum number of neighbor list supported by the AT.
If the AT receives some common overhead message including neighboring cell list, or
NeighborList message:
1. The AT should add AGE of each pilot in neighbor set once.
2. For the pilots in neighbor set receiving neighbor list, the AT sets AGEs of the pilots to
minimum value of the current AGE plus NeighborMaxAge.
3. For the pilots in candidate set receiving neighbor list:

If the neighbor set size does not exceed the maximum number of neighbor set supported
by the AT after the neighbor list pilot is added to neighbor set, the AT adds the pilot to
neighbor set and sets its AGE to NeighborMaxAge.

If the neighbor set size exceeds the maximum number of neighbor set supported by the
AT after the neighbor list pilot is added to neighbor set, and neighbor set includes at least
one pilot whose AGE exceeds NeighborMaxAge, the AT deletes the pilot with the

largest AGE- NeighborMaxAge difference of the neighbor set, and adds neighbor list
pilot to neighbor set and set its AGE to NeighborMaxAge. If the neighbor set includes at
least one pilot whose AGE exceeds NeighborMaxAge, the AT deletes the pilot with the
largest AGE- NeighborMaxAge difference of the neighbor set, and adds neighbor list
pilot to neighbor set and set its AGE to NeighborMaxAge.
If the neighbor set size exceeds the maximum number of neighbor set supported by the AT
after neighbor list pilot is added to neighbor set, and neighbor set has no one pilot whose AGE
exceeds NeighborMaxAge, the AT does not add neighbor pilot in active set to neighbor set. If
no AGE in the neighbor set exceeds NeighborMaxAge, the AT does not add this neighbor list
active set to the neighbor set.
5.1.12 Acquisition Search Window Size (ACQUISITIONWSZ)

5.2 Inter-Frequency Pilot Set Management
The principles of the EV-DO Rev. A inter-frequency pilot set management are as follows:
When an AT is in the connected state, the AT starts searching inter-frequencies when the
following two conditions are met:

The strength of the strongest pilot among the active set and the candidate set is less than
5dB.

Certain pilots in the candidate set or the neighbor set work on inter-frequencies.
Inter-frequency search takes at least 100 ms, during which services are interrupted. After the
search is complete, the AT determines whether to report the RouteUpdate message based on
similar rules as defined in the intra-frequency SHO. Therefore, the description of certain
parameters for inter-frequency pilot management is almost the same as that of intra-frequency
pilot management.

5.2.1 Different Channel Parameters Pilot Add
(DIFFCHPILOTADD)
Description
This parameter specifies the threshold for adding a pilot to a candidate set. An available pilot
that does not belong to the active set nor the candidate set and whose strength is greater than
the threshold is added to the candidate set by the AT.
Type
Um interface parameter of the carrier level, defined in the PilotAdd field of the
SetManagementDifferentChannelParameters table when the route update protocol
configures negotiation.
Related Commands
MOD DOCNPA
LST DOCNPA
Value Range
63 to 0 (unit: 0.5 dB).
Default Value
14 (7 dB).
Setting Tradeoff
The smaller the threshold is set, the easier it is for the AT to add the pilots to the candidate set.
In this case, the CFSRQM report is increasingly frequent. Certain reports may be of less value.
This may cause unnecessary signaling load. The greater the threshold is set, the harder the AT
adds the pilots to the candidate set. The signaling load is decreased but the handoff may not be
implemented.
Remarks
Set the threshold to a relatively greater value to let the AT add more pilots to the candidate set.
Therefore, the BSC can have more choices when making decisions.
5.2.2 Different Channel Parameters Pilot Compare
(DIFFCHPILOTCMP)
Description
This parameter specifies the threshold of the difference between the strength of a pilot in an
active set and the strength of a pilot in a candidate set. When the strength of a pilot in a
candidate set is higher than that of a pilot in an activate set, the AT sends the RouteUpdate
message.

Setting Tradeoff
If the value of this parameter is very small, the AT frequently sends the RouteUpdate message,
resulting in frequent SHOs. If the value of this parameter is very large, the AT fails to report
the RouteUpdate message in time, resulting in delayed handoffs.
Remarks
None.
5.2.3 Different Channel Parameters Pilot Drop
(DIFFCHPILOTDROP)
Description
This parameter specifies the threshold of the smallest inter-frequency pilot strength at which
the drop timer is started. When the strength of a pilot (inter-frequency) in the active set or in
the candidate set is smaller than this parameter value, the AT starts a pilot drop timer. If the
pilot strength is greater than the PilotDrop value before the timer expires, the timer is
restarted.
Type

active set. If the value of this parameter is very small, handoff threshold decreases and a pilot
in the active set is difficult to be removed from active set.
Remarks
None.
5.2.4 Different Channel Parameters Pilot Drop Timer
(DIFFCHPILOTDROPTIMER)
Description
This parameter specifies the duration of the inter-frequency pilot drop timer. When the
strength of the pilots (inter-frequency) in the candidate set of the AT is smaller than the
[Inter-Frequency Pilot Available Threshold (DIFFCHPILOTADD)], the AT enables the pilot
drop timer according to the value of this parameter. After the timer expires, the AT moves the
inter-frequency pilot to the neighbor set.

If the value of this parameter is very large, the AT fails to remove the inter-frequency pilot
with weak strength from the candidate set in time. If the value of this parameter is very small,
the AT removes available inter-frequency pilot to the neighbor set.
Remarks
When [Dynamic Threshold Included] is set to YES, the comparison between pilot strength
and [Pilot Drop Threshold] is one of the conditions to enable and disable the pilot drop timer.

Description
This parameter specifies the slope of the dynamic SHO threshold. When the dynamic SHO is
enabled, adding or removing legs uses this slope. If [Whether to Use Dynamic Thresholds
for Intra-Frequency Pilots (DYNAMICTRESHINC)] is set to NO (not use), this parameter
is invalid.

increases. The larger the value of this parameter is, the higher the dynamic adding threshold
will be, and the harder it will be to add neighboring pilots to the active set. In such cases, the
SHO ratio decreases, and the SHO gains cannot be fully used. In such cases, the reverse
performance may increase.

Remarks
If DynamicThresholds is set to 1, the AT performs the following operations:
The AT starts a pilot drop timer for each pilot whose strength is smaller than PilotDrop and
the pilot drop timer expires after the duration of the PilotDropTimer. If pilot strength is greater
than PilotDrop before the timer expires, the timer restarts and is disabled.
The AT arranges the pilots in the active set in an ascending order according to their strengths,
that is, PS1< PS2<PS3<......< PSNa. Na is the number of pilots in the active set. When the

If the strength does not satisfy this inequation, the AT restarts and disables the timer.
5.2.9 Different Channel Parameters Neighbor Max Age
(DIFFCHNBRMAXAGE)
Description
This parameter specifies the maximum lifetime of the inter-frequency pilots in the neighbor
set. The AT has a counter for each pilot in the neighbor set. When the AT receives a Neighbor
List Update Message (NLUM), the AT increases the counters of the original pilots in the
neighbor set by 1. If the counter value exceeds this parameter value, the AT removes this pilot
from the neighbor set. If the parameter value is set to 0, each time the AT receives an NLUM,
the AT removes all pilots in the original neighbor set so that the AT uses the contents in the
latest NLUM. If the value is set to 2, when a pilot that is moved from the active set or
candidate set to the neighbor set is not in two successive NLUMs, this pilot is removed from
the neighbor set.
Type

SetManagementDifferentChannelParameters feature table during the negotiation of route
update protocol.
Related Commands
MOD DOCNPA

Value Range
0 to 15.
Default Value

Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a great value, a pilot that is excluded from the active set or candidate
set can stay for a longer time in the neighbor set. Hence new neighbor pilots in the NLUM
may be excluded from the neighbor set of the AT (when the number of pilots exceeds the
maximum number of pilots in the neighbor set of the AT). If this parameter is set to 0, each
time the AT receives the NLUM, the AT takes the neighbor pilot list in the NLUM for a new
pilot neighbor set. If there are many neighboring cells, set the parameter to 0. This ensures
that AT always uses the neighbor pilot contents of the latest NLUM delivered by the BSC.

Remarks
AT keeps a counter (AGE) for each pilot in neighbor set, and proceeds as follows:
1. The pilot deleted from active set but not added to candidate set is added to the neighbor
set and the AGE is set to 0.
2. For the pilot deleted from candidate set but not added to active set, the AGE is set to 0.
3. If the neighbor set size exceeds the maximum neighboring cell number supported by AT,
the AT removes enough pilots based on descending sequence of AGE so that neighbor
set size is equal to maximum number of neighbor list supported by AT.
4. If AT receives some common overhead message including neighboring cell list, or
NeighborList message:
A. AT should add AGE of each pilot in neighbor set once.
B. For the pilots in neighbor set receiving neighbor list, AT sets AGEs of the pilots to
minimum value of the current AGE plus NeighborMaxAge.
C. For the pilots in candidate set receiving neighbor list:
If the neighbor set size does not exceed the maximum number of neighbor set
supported by AT after the neighbor list pilot is added to neighbor set, AT adds the
pilot to neighbor set and sets its AGE to NeighborMaxAge.
If neighbor set size exceeds the maximum number of neighbor set supported by AT
after the neighbor list pilot is added to neighbor set, and neighbor set includes at least
one pilot whose AGE exceeds NeighborMaxAge, AT deletes the pilot with the
largest AGE- NeighborMaxAge difference of the neighbor set, and adds neighbor
list pilot to neighbor set and set its AGE to NeighborMaxAge. If the neighbor set
includes at least one pilot whose AGE exceeds NeighborMaxAge, AT deletes the
pilot with the largest AGE- NeighborMaxAge difference of the neighbor set, and
adds neighbor list pilot to neighbor set and set its AGE to NeighborMaxAge.
If neighbor set size exceeds the maximum number of neighbor set supported by AT
after neighbor list pilot is added to neighbor set, and neighbor set has no one pilot
whose AGE exceeds NeighborMaxAge, AT does not add neighbor pilot in active set
to neighbor set. If no AGE in the neighbor set exceeds NeighborMaxAge, the AT
does not add this neighbor list active set to the neighbor set.

5.3.1 Pilot Increment (PILOTINCREMENT)
Description
This parameter specifies the increment of the PN sequence offset index. The value of this
parameter is the greatest common divisor of the pilot PN sequence offsets of neighboring
BTSs.
If the PLTINC is specified, the number of available pilot PNs in the system is 512/PLTINC. If
the value of this parameter is small, many pilot phase offsets are available, and the intra-phase

inter-pilot multiplexing distance is long. This can lower the interference between multiplexing
pilots at the same phase. The phase interval between pilots, however, is reduced, and pilot
disorder, therefore, may be incurred. If the value is great, the numbers of available pilot phase
offsets and remaining centralized pilots are small, and an AT has less time to scan for pilots.
In an actual dynamic environment, the probability of losing a strong pilot is smaller. On the
other hand, the number of available pilot phase offsets is smaller, the intra-phase inter-pilot
multiplexing distance is shorter, and the intra-phase inter-pilot interface is stronger. In
addition, the parameter determines the maximum value of SRCH_WIN_N and
SRCH_WIN_R.
Type
Air interface parameter of the carrier level, specified in the PilotIncrement filed of the
SearchParameters feature table during the negotiation of default route update protocol.

Setting Tradeoff
The recommended value range is 2 to 6. In densely-populated urban areas, the value of this
parameter can be small. In wide coverage areas, the value of this parameter can be great. For
example, the BTSs in a site are densely distributed, that is, the distances between BTSs are
small. PILOT_INC is set to 2 for this site. With precisely planned PNs, the probability of PN
disorder can be minimized.
Remarks
None.
5.3.2 Search Window Active (SRCHWINA)
Description
This parameter specifies the search window size used when the AT searches for the pilots of
the active set and the candidate set. When searching for pilots in the active and candidate sets,
the AT uses the available multi-path that arrives first as the search centers. Therefore, this
parameter is only related to the multi-paths of pilots, instead of the relative propagation delay
between pilots.

Setting Tradeoff
According to the local propagation delay, the pilot signals after the propagation delay should
fall into the search window of the active set. If this parameter is set to a small value, some
useful signals in the active set may fall beyond the search window to seriously affect the link
quality. If this parameter is set to a great value, some irrelevant signals (PN confusion) may
also fall into the search window, so the link quality may also be affected. A large search
window also slows down the AT's search for neighbor pilots. As a result, the handoff could
not be triggered in time. Thus the system performance decreases.
Remarks
None.
5.3.3 Search Window Neighbor (SRCHWINN)
Description
This parameter specifies the size of the search window in the neighbor set. This parameter is
related to the multipaths of neighbor pilots and relative propagation delay from neighbor pilot
to the reference pilot.

Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a great value, the time for searching pilots is prolonged. If the value
is small, some pilot legs may be missed.
Remarks
The following figure shows the process of the AT searching for a pilot. The following figure
shows the conditions when AT searches for pilots. AT searches for pilots in active set and sets
available multipath arriving earliest of active set pilot as a center. When AT searches for
neighbor set pilots, set the reference pilot as time reference and PN offset of neighbor pilot as

Default Value
10 (that is, 100 chips).
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a small value, some useful pilots in the remaining set may be missed.
As a result, the function of BSC detecting the absent configuration of neighboring cell can not
be utilized fully. If this parameter is set to a great value, the AT may search other irrelevant
signals, and the time that the AT searches pilots in the remaining set increases, so the search
speed of the AT slows down.

Remarks
This parameter is used when the function of detecting the missing neighboring cells is
required to check whether any missing neighboring cells exist in the system. During the pilot
search in the remaining set, the AT searches for only the PNs that are integral multiples of
PILOT_INC. The search window in the remaining set can be set to 0 if the neighboring cells
are properly optimized.
5.3.5 Search Window Size Contain Flag (SRCHWININC)

Default Value
60 chips.
Setting Tradeoff
According to the multipath of neighbor pilot and the propagation delay size from neighbor
pilot to reference pilot, set the parameter to ensure that neighbor pilot signals are located
within the neighbor set search window that sets the earliest arriving multi-path of reference
pilot as time reference and PN offset of neighbor pilot as the search center. If this parameter is
set to a small value, neighbor pilot signals may be located beyond the search window to miss
some neighbor pilots so that neighbor set pilots cannot be added to active set and normal SHO
fails. If this parameter is set to a great value, the time for AT to search for each neighboring
pilot may increase to slow down the speed for searching neighbor pilot and miss the best SHO
opportunity. In this way, the handoff performance of the system is potentially affected.
Remarks
For the pilots in active set, AT can set the search window center close to the earliest arriving
available multipath components. For each pilot in neighbor set, by using the timing defined by
AT reference baseband, AT can set the search window close to the search window offset
specified by the result of pilot PN sequence plus NeighborSearchWindowOffset. The concept
of the search window for 1X is similar.
5.3.7 Search Window Offset Contain Flag (SRCHOFFSINC)
Description
This parameter determines whether the sector parameter message contains the information
about the offset of the neighbor set pilot search window.
If the message contains the information, use the value of NSRCHWINOFFSET to search the
offset. If the message does not contain the information, use the default neighbor set branch to
search the offset.

Setting Tradeoff
When CENTERTHRLD is set to a fixed value, this parameter is directly proportional to the
opportunity that the AN requests the AT to report RouteUpdate. If the value is excessively
small, a hard handoff may be triggered before the AT is close enough to the center of the
target sector, that is, the hard handoff is triggered too early.
If the value is great, the AN has more opportunities to request RouteUpdate from the AT, and
the AN can obtain enough information about the current radio environment of the AT. If the
parameter appropriately is set to a high value, and if the pilot strength of the target sector
cannot reach ECIOTHRLD, however, the AT may already be far away from the source sector
but the hard handoff does not happen in time, resulting in a hard handoff failure (the hard
handoff is implemented too late).

If the value is excessively small, handoffs may not be triggered in time, that is, no handoff is
triggered even when an AT is close to the center of the target sector. This may result in hard
handoff failure. If the value is excessively great, hard handoffs may occur too early. In this
case, the AT may not be close enough to the center of the target sector, and the target BTS
may not be able to detect the AT.

Internal ordinary parameter of the carrier level.
Related Commands
MOD DOHHOSF

Value Range
0 to 63 (unit: 0.5 dB).
Default Value
5 (2.5 dB).
Setting Tradeoff
The smaller the value of this parameter is, the easier for the HHO to be triggered. In such
cases, the signals on the forward channels of the source cell do not deteriorate to a great
extent. This helps the AT to receive the HDM of the original cell, but the AT may not
successfully capture a forward channel of the target cell. The higher the value of this
parameter, the harder for the intra-frequency HHO to be triggered, which helps the AT to
capture the forward channels of the target cell. Due to poor signals from the source cell in the
HHO, the AT may not receive the TCA message from the source cell.
Remarks
Select the decision parameter of the active set leg of which the switch is enabled as the
decision parameter for the intra-frequency hard handoff.
5.7.3 Outgoing Handoff Threshold of Intra-Frequency Hard

Description
This parameter specifies the pilot strength required for the AT to perform the intra-frequency
HHO from the source cell to the target cell.
When the integrated pilot strength of the intra-frequency hard handoff in the target set is
higher than TRGABSTHRESH, and when the integrated pilot strength of the SHO target
active set is higher than SRCABSTHRESH, an intra-frequency hard handoff is triggered.
Type

Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a small value, the signal strength of the source cell side is low when
the AT performs the HHO from the source cell to the target cell. In this case, the AT cannot
receive the TCA message delivered by the BTS at the source cell side, and the HHO fails. If
this parameter is set to a great value, the triggering conditions of intra-frequency HHOs can
be easily met. In this case, the HHO is triggered depending on the intra-frequency HHO
absolute threshold.
Remarks
None.

Setting Tradeoff
The smaller the value of this parameter is, the easier for the intra-frequency HHO to be
triggered. The radio environment after the AT handoff, however, cannot be guaranteed. In this
case, the AT cannot capture the target cell, and the HHO fails. The higher the value of this
parameter is, the harder for the intra-frequency HHO to be triggered. In this case, the AT can
easily capture the channel of the target cell.
Remarks

after DOSHOSW is enabled through the MOD NBRAN command.
5.9.3 Call Park Delay Timer (No. 18 Timer of the RRM)
Description
If all the legs in the active set are from the AN rather than the serving AN, call migration can
be performed only after the time length of No. 18 Timer of the RRM is prolonged.
Type
Internal timer of the BSC level.
Related Commands

Value Range
0 to 30000 (unit: ms).
Default Value
3000 ms.
Setting Tradeoff
The time for the call park has a great impact on the effect of the call park. If the call park is
performed too early, the inter-AN HHO is frequently performed around the boundaries of the
AN. In this case, the inter-AN SHO becomes the inter-AN HHO, which does not show the
value of the SHO. If the call park is performed too late, too much inter-AN link bandwidth is
occupied, which is a waste of A18 link resources.
Remarks
None.

Setting Tradeoff
If the strength measurable HHO algorithm for the HHO target pilot is used, you are advised to
set this parameter to 3. This is consistent with the maximum number of legs in the SHO target
active set wherein the strength of the target pilot is known and the HHO target is accurate. If
the strength immeasurable HHO algorithm for the HHO target pilot is used, you are advised
to set this parameter to a higher value, which can increase the HHO success rate, because the
strength of the target pilot (obtained through data configuration) is unknown and the HHO
target may be inaccurate.
Remarks
None.

Remarks
If this parameter is set to SHO (supporting inter-AN SHOs), this indicates that the external
carriers support soft handoffs and hard handoffs. In this case, if the A17/A18 link is
configured between the ANs where the external carriers operate, and if a soft handoff is
required between the ANs, this parameter must be set to SHO; however, if the soft handoff

5.9.9 Detect Pilot Pollution Switch (POLLUTESWITCH)
Description
This parameter determines whether the pilot pollution detection is allowed or not. Pilot
pollution does not refer to a major pilot but refers to a large number of pilots with similar
strengths in the radio environment. According to the pilot strength information carried in the
RouteUpdate message reported by the AT, if the pilot pollution decision conditions are met,
output the pilot pollution information to the log filer to facilitate network optimization. The
following two conditions for pilot pollution should be met:

In the RouteUpdate message, the number of pilots whose strength is greater than that of
pilots in the PilotAdd message is not less than the number of legs in pilot pollution.

In the RouteUpdate message, the strength difference between the strongest pilot and the
second strongest pilot is not more than the pilot pollution relative threshold.
Type

Setting Tradeoff
Pilot pollution increases the ratio of SHOs. The EV-DO system does not support SHOs, thus
too many pilots cause interference.
Remarks
Only when this parameter is set to ON, the set number of legs in pilot pollution and relative
threshold for pilot pollution are effective.

Remarks
If any pilot is not in the active set or neighbor set of the AN, this is called un-configured
intra-frequency neighboring cells. After the un-configured neighboring cell detection switch is
enabled, this case can be recorded into the log file, covering the module ID, carrier ID, and
strength of all pilots in the current active set. In addition, the information such as the PHPhase
and pilot strength of unknown pilots is recorded for reference to neighbor relation
configuration.

6 Reverse Power Control Parameters
Reverse power control is classified into open loop power control and closed loop power
control. Reverse closed loop power control has two categories: reverse outer loop power
control and reverse inner loop power control. Through reverse power control, the AT adjusts
the transmit power to the minimum so that the interference caused by the transmit power is
minimized.
6.1 EV-DO Rev. A Power Control Parameters
6.1.1 Reverse Target PER (DOAREVPER)
Description
This parameter specifies the target PER when the AT transmits data on the reverse channel.
Package Error Rate refers to the ratio of the number of received error data packets to the total
number of received data packets.
Type
Internal ordinary parameter of the carrier level. This parameter is not sent to the AT.
Related Commands
MOD DOARPCP
LST DORRMP
Value Range
RPER1 (0.1) to RPER300 (30) (unit: 1%).
Default Value
RPER10 (1), that is 1%.
Setting Tradeoff
To set the reverse target PER, you need to find the balance between the reverse transmit
power and contribution to system load. If the reverse target PER is set lower, the transmit
power of the AT must be higher, and the contribution to system reverse load is greater. On the

CDMA Performance Parameters (EV-DO) V3.3 for
Customers Tables

contrary, if the reverse target PER is set higher, the requirement for the transmit power of the
AT is lower, and the contribution to system reverse load is smaller.
Remarks
The reverse PER affects the sector throughput.
6.1.2 Min. PCT (DOAMINPCT)
Description
This parameter specifies the minimum PCT for outer loop power control.
Type
Internal ordinary parameter of the carrier level. This parameter is not sent to the AT.
Related Commands
MOD DOARPCP
LST DORRMP
Value Range
28672 to 12416 (unit: 1/1024 dB).
Default Value
22016 (that is 21.5 dB).
Setting Tradeoff
When the same target PER is reached, the PCT changes with the link condition such as the
change of SHO legs, that is, the PCT changes dynamically. This parameter is defined together
with the DOAMAXPCT. The lower the value of this parameter is, the wider the dynamic
changing range of the PCT. When the reverse link condition is good, the transmit power of the
AT can be saved, and the reverse system load is reduced. If fast fading occurs, the AT cannot
enhance the power timely, thus affecting the transmission performance. If the value of this
parameter is set higher, negative impacts of fast fading can be suppressed. In this case,
however, the transmit power of the AT is wasted, thus increasing the system RSSI and
reducing the reverse capacity.
Remarks
The outer loop power control adjusts the PCT target value of the reverse pilot channel so that
the target PER can be guaranteed. The inner loop power control is performed on the BTS.
After comparing the received power of the AT with the target PCT, the BTS orders the AT to
increase or reduce the transmit power. The DOAMINPCT (minimum PCT), INIPCT (initial
PCT), and MAXPCT (maximum PCT) must satisfy the following conditions: DOAMINPCT
INIPCT DOAMAXPCT; DOAMINPCT DOAMAXPCT (No data transmitted)

reduces system reverse capacity. On the contrary, a low value of this parameter cannot resist
the negative impact of drastically changing radio environment on the system or guarantee the
reverse PER.

channel.
Type

Default Value
1 dB (1).
Setting Tradeoff
The main difference between this parameter and the RPC step specified in the default protocol
is that they are dedicated to different networks: this parameter is used in the EV-DO Rev. A
network, whereas the latter one is used in the EV-DO Rel. 0 network.
Remarks
The RPC step specified in the default protocol is used in the EV-DO Rel. 0 network. In the
EV-DO Rel. 0 network, reverse inner loop power control is implemented by the BTS based on
the status of each frame. In the EV-DO Rev. A network, the reverse inner loop power control
combined with the ARQ mechanism is implemented on the basis of the termination target of
each subframe, and the power control rate is 150 Hz (1 frame = 4 subframes = 16 slots = 2048
chips; encoding rate = 1.2288 Mchip/s). The PCT set through the outer loop power control is
transmitted to the BTS through a forward idle frame over the Abis interface. Thus, the impact
of the forward flow control on the outer loop power control is avoided. However, the idle
frame carrying the PCT may be discarded because of congestion control. The BTS compares
the PCT of the received reverse pilot signal with the target PCT. If the former PCT is less than
the latter one, the BTS requests the AT to increase its transmit power; if the former one is
greater than the latter one, the BTS requests the AT to decrease its transmit power.
Additionally, the BTS sends the AT the power control bit on the forward RPC channel. If this
bit is 0, it indicates that the power increases by one RPC step; if this bit is 1, it indicates that
the power decreases by one RPC step (one RPC step = 0.5 dB or 1 dB). RPCStep is defined
in the PowerParameters attribute table during the MAC protocol negotiation on the reverse
traffic channel. During a softer handoff, the control bit delivered by each leg is the same, and
the AT combines these control bits to the largest extent. During a soft handoff, the AT
decreases its transmit power if the control bits delivered by the legs are different and the RPC
delivered by any of the legs is 1.
6.1.6 Modifying the Relation Between the Reverse PER and Down
Step
Description
This parameter is used to modify the relation between the target PER and PCT decrease step.
The EV-DO Rev. A supports the PER ranging from 0.1% to 30% (totaling 27 classes). Each
PER can be set with a decrease step in a different range.
Type
Internal parameter of the carrier level.

Decrease step when the PER is 0.5% 3 Ordinary

Setting Tradeoff
This higher the value of this parameter is, the faster the PCT decreases. In addition, a high
value of this parameter adjusts the power quickly, but it may cause drastically changing PERs.
If the value of this parameter is set too low, the transmit power of the AT may stay too high
for a long time.
Remarks
The current PER is 1% by default, and the corresponding decrease step is 5/1024 dB.
6.1.7 Forward Traffic Channel Sending Down RPC Time
(FLSNDRPCDWN)

This parameter specifies the time for the forward traffic channel to continuously send the
decrease RPC. That is, after the forward traffic channel is disabled, it continuously sends
decrease reverse power control bits.

accessing the network according to the load measurement standard and direction defined by
the system, hard allocation threshold, and current hard allocation algorithm.
Measurement factors that indicate the load measurement standard are described as follows:
Measurement factors that indicate the forward load:

Total timeslot occupancy ratio of EF flow and AF flow

Equivalent bandwidth of EF flow and AF flow

Number of flow, including EF flow, AF flow, and BE flow

Number of equivalent QoS users, which is applicable to EV-DO ReI0. Weight based on
the QoS weight of a call.

Average timeslot occupancy ratio of a BE flow
Formula: Average timeslot occupancy ratio of a BE flow = (100% (Total timeslot occupancy
ratio of EF flow and AF flow))/Number of BE flow
Measurement factors that indicate the reverse load:

RoT

Computed Load
The following table describes the application scenarios for hard assignment algorithms:
Scenario Algorithm
The AT accesses frequency A. Loads at frequency A and
frequency B are light and the call is assigned to access
frequency A by adopting the HASH algorithm. That is,
ensure the load balancing between frequencies through the
balance kept by the AT.
Adopt the hard assignment
algorithm of EV-DO access
priority.
You can measure the carrier
load based on the forward
load or reverse load.

The AT (ReI0) accesses frequency A. Carrier version A is
preferred at frequency A while carrier version 0 is preferred
at frequency Bloods at frequency A and frequency B are
light and the call is assigned to access frequency B. When
the AT migrates from the DO_Rel. A cell to the DO_Rel. 0
cell, the occurrences of hard handover can be reduced.
NOTE:
In this part, the carrier refers to the DO_Rel. A carrier.
Adopt the hard assignment
algorithm of EV-DO
version priority.
You can measure the carrier
load based on the forward
load or reverse load.
The AT accesses frequency A. The priority of frequency B
is higher than that of frequency A. Loads at frequency A and
frequency B are light and the call is assigned to access
frequency B. At the border covering both urban and rural
areas, set up calls at wide coverage frequencies. This can
effectively reduce hard handover.
Adopt the hard assignment
algorithm of priority.
You can measure the carrier
load based on the forward
load or reverse load.
The AT accesses frequency A. Loads at frequency A and
frequency B are heavy but the load at frequency A is heavier
than that of frequency B. The call is assigned to frequency
B. The balanced load prevents a situation wherein certain
carriers are overloaded and other carriers are idle
Adopt the hard assignment
algorithm of load balancing.
You can measure the carrier
load based on the forward
load or reverse load.
The AT accesses frequency A. Interference at frequency A
is great. Therefore, assign the AT to carrier B with no or
little interference. When the load on carrier B exceeds the
admission threshold, perform interference retrieval to assign
users to carrier A.
RSSI hard assignment and
interference retrieval.

When ASSALWDO is set to ON, the hard assignment algorithm of load balancing and hard
assignment algorithm of priority are enabled. Other hard assignment algorithms can be
enabled only when the corresponding algorithm switches are set to ON. When all the hard
assignment algorithms take effect, the priority of system processing is as follows: RSSI hard
assignment, hard assignment of access priority, hard assignment of version priority (select
carriers with high priorities and whose assigned threshold is lower than the hard assignment
threshold), hard assignment of load balancing (select the carrier with high priority and low
load), and interference retrieval.

This parameter specifies the number of timeslots occupied for transmitting the reverse activity
bit (RAB) of the EV-DO Rel. 0 carrier. It is effective for EV-DO 0 ATs only. Each RA bit is
repeated and transmitted in consecutive timeslots in the number of RABLength. The RA bit in
each timeslot needs to be repeated for the second time. Each RA bit is transmitted at timeslot
T that meets the following condition:

TrafficChannelAssignment message.
Related Commands
MOD DOSP
LST DORRMP
Value Range
8, 16, 32, and 64, in the unit of timeslot.


Default Value
8.
Setting Tradeoff
If the parameter is set to a very small value, an AT on the cell edge cannot correctly
demodulate the RA channel. If this parameter is set to a very high value, the period for rate
control is long, which results in a delayed reflection of system load and radio link change.
Remarks
The RAB is transmitted on the RA channel which is the sub-channel of the forward MAC
channel. The assigned MAC Index value is 4. The RAB identifies reverse overload of system.
The system measures the received level to determine whether the reverse link is overloaded,
and then determines the RA value. According to the RA value, the AT dynamically adjusts the
reverse service rate. When the RA is set to 0, the reverse link is not overloaded. Therefore, the
AT determines whether to increase the service rate based on the conversion probability. When
the RA is set to 1, the AT determines whether to decrease the service rate based on the
corresponding rate drop probability. If the reverse link of the AT has multiple soft handover
legs, the AT employs the "or" logic for the received RABs. That is, the AT decreases the rate
according to requirements of the branch. Resources are reestablished and all the connections
on this carrier are released if the value of RABLength is modified.

8.2.4 RAB Offset (RABOFFSET)
Description
This parameter specifies the number of timeslots occupied for RAB transmission that is
determined together with RABLength (number of timeslots occupied for RAB
transmission). This parameter is effective for EV-DO Rel. 0 systems only. The transmission
timeslot of the AT = RABOffset*RABLength / 8.
Type
Ordinary air interface parameter of the carrier level, transmitted in the RABOffset domain of
TrafficChannelAssignment Message.
Related Commands
MOD DOSP
LST DORRMP
Value Range
0 to 7.
Default Value
Allocate different values for neighboring sectors (default value: 0)
Setting Tradeoff
In the EV-DO Rel. 0 system, set different RAB offsets for neighboring sectors. This helps
prevent the synchronous change of AT rate to decrease the dramatic change of system load
(ROT) and transmission rate and increase system capacity and stability. This is because the
loads of neighboring sectors are correlated, that is, if several sectors are overloaded, the loads
of other sectors may decrease when the AT rate of a sector changes. If RABs of neighboring
sectors are transmitted on the same timeslot offset, all the ATs of the sectors decrease rate.
Therefore, many sectors do not overload synchronously. If all ATs of the sectors increase rate,
many sectors are overloaded again. In this case, loads of sectors change dramatically and the
system performance degrades.
Remarks
Resources are reestablished and all the connections on this carrier are released if the value of
RABOffset is modified. The EV-DO Rev. A system no longer uses RABLength and
RABOffset.
8.2.5 RA Channel Gain (RACGAIN)

Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a high value, the demodulation correctness of the RA channel is
improved. But the reverse load increases while the reverse capacity decreases.
Remarks
None.
8.2.6 Reverse Limited Rate
Description
This parameter specifies the probability of AT rate changing from X kbit/s to Y kbit/s. This
indicates the probability that the AT rate increases or decreases to Y from the current rate X.
The AT determines whether to increase or decrease rate according to the RAB transmitted by
the AN. When the RAB is set to 1, the AT decreases the rate. When the RAB is set to 0, the
AT increases the rate. The reverse probability conversion is used for reverse scheduling in the
EV-DO Rel. 0 system. This parameter is replaced by T2P algorithm for reverse scheduling in
the EV-DO Rev. A system. The reverse rate transfer is applied during reverse scheduling in
the EV-DO Rel. 0 system. In the EV-DO Rev. A system, the T2P algorithm instead of Reverse
Limited Rate is used for reverse scheduling.
Type

attribute table during configuration negotiation of the MAC protocol of the reverse traffic
channel.

Setting Tradeoff
If the parameter is set to a higher value, the AT is more likely to adjust the rate each time it
receives RABs. RABs are transmitted to all the ATs in a sector. Therefore, all the ATs in the
sector may increase or decrease the rate at the same time, resulting in the dramatic change of
sector load. If the parameter is set to a smaller value, the AT is less likely to adjust the rate
when it receives RABs. Therefore, the load control may be delayed and the AT cannot
respond to the request of adjusting the sector load in time.
Remarks
The process of controlling the reverse AT rate is as follows: If the last received RAB of any
sector in the AT active set is set to 1, the AT sets CombinedBusyBit to 1. Otherwise, the AT
sets CombinedBusyBit to 0. CurrentRate is set to the data transmission rate of the AT just
before the new transmission is performed. If the AT does not transmit data before the new
transmission is performed, the AT sets CurrentRate to 0. The AT sets the variable value of
MaxRate based on the current transmission rate, a random number, and CombinedBusyBit
value. The AT generates random number x (0 < x < 1) that is distributed equally. The AT
determines whether conditions listed in Table 8-2 are met based on values of CurrentRate,

CombinedBusyBit, and Condition. If such conditions can be met, the AT sets MaxRate with
the MaxRateTrue value in the corresponding line in Table 5-1. If such conditions cannot be
met, the AT sets MaxRate with the MaxRateFalse value in the corresponding line in Table
5-1. Except being affected by the preceding factors, the reverse AT rate is also restricted by
the rate and AT Tx.

8.3.7 Abis BE Flow Traffic Bandwidth Threshold
(ABISBETRFBWTHR)
Description
This parameter specifies the admission threshold of the Abis BE service bandwidth. This
parameter specifies the minimum Abis bandwidth required by the BE service. If the Abis
bandwidth allocated for BE users is smaller than this value, BE users cannot access the
system.
Type
Parameter of the BTS level.
Related Commands
MOD BSCBTSINF
LST BSCBTSINF
Value Range
0 to 3,072 (unit of kbit/s).
Default Value
0.
Setting Tradeoff
If the parameter is set to a smaller value, more users are admitted by the BTS. The experience
of a single user, however, may be affected because of the very low Abis bandwidth that is
allocated. If the parameter is set to a higher value, fewer users are admitted, but the user
experience of a single user is better.
Remarks
If this parameter is set to 0, this indicates that the Abis bandwidth admission is not performed
for BE services.

Remarks
Measure loads according to the equivalent rate of users. The time during which users do not
transmit data is excluded from the valid transmission time. The low average equivalent rate of
users in a sector indicates high system load. New users need to be restricted from accessing
the sector or users with poor radio environment need to be released. If the Load Control
Switch of BE Flow is enabled, the Admission Control Access Switch of BE Flow must also
be enabled.
8.3.10 Bass User Number Offset of BE Flow (USERBASSNUM)
Description
When functions of admission and load control based on the equivalent rate of users are
enabled, if the number of users on a carrier is lower than this threshold, no user is restricted
from accessing this carrier. If the number of users on a carrier is higher than the threshold of
Bass User Number Offset of BE Flow, determine whether users can access the carrier
according to the equivalent rate.
Type
Parameter of the carrier level.
Related Commands
MOD DOAFLCP

Value Range
5 to 32 in the unit of user.
Default Value
5.
Setting Tradeoff
If the parameter is set to a very small value, after a few remote users access the carrier, other
users cannot access the carrier due to very low average rate. If the parameter is set to a very
high value, even though the average rate of users on this sector carrier is low, admission
control cannot be implemented because the user number is lower than this parameter value.
Remarks
Measure loads according to the equivalent rate of users. The time during which users do not
transmit data is excluded from the valid transmission time. The low average equivalent rate of
users in a sector indicates high system load. This parameter functions as the decision
condition for functions of admission and load control.

RemarksLoad is calculated by the CSM chip on the EV-DO channel board of the BTS
according to the number of reverse activity users, reverse rate, and strength of received
signals. Theoretically, RoT and Load are equivalent. Load represented by Load, however, is
less accurate than the load represented by RoT due to frequent change of radio environment,
various types of interferences, and attenuation. Therefore, generally, Load is not adopted.

noise.
Remarks
None.
8.4.4 RAB Threshold (RABTHR)
Description
This parameter is used to set the ROT threshold of the RA bit when QRABSRCTP is set to
BASEONROT. The ROT obtained by each timeslot of the channel board is compared with
this threshold. If the ROT is higher than the threshold, set the RA bit of the subframe to 1,
which indicates that the sector is busy; if the ROT is lower than the threshold, set the RA bit
of the subframe to 1, which indicates that the sector is idle.
Type
Ordinary internal parameter of the carrier level.

LST DORRMP
Value Range
0 to 255 (unit: 0.25 dB).
Default Value
23.
Setting Tradeoff
If the parameter is set to a very small value, the reverse throughput is limited in the case that
load control is enabled. If the parameter is set to a very high value, load control cannot be
enabled in time, and thus the system may break down.5.75 dB is recommended by Qualcomm
for this threshold.
The default value cannot be used universally. Set the parameter to proper value according to
the actual load and radio environment of the current network.
Remarks
In the case that QRABSRCTP is set to BASEONROT, if RABTHR is set to the default
value, the reverse throughput of the sector is decreased. Thus, if the repeater without receive
diversity is used, the recommended value is 23; if the repeater with receive diversity is used,
the recommended value is 32.
8.5 EV-DO Rev. A Reverse Admission and Load Control
Parameters
The following parameters are used only during connection setup (setup of the main stream).

Value Range
ON (enabled), or OFF (disabled).
Default Value
OFF.
Setting Tradeoff
None.
Remarks
The reverse admission algorithm of BE flow specifies the load threshold according to the
reverse load (ratio of busy/idle RABs on the carrier) and T2P resources obtained by users.
When the reverse load of the carrier exceeds the threshold, new users cannot access the carrier.
This ensures that the accessed users can obtain sufficient reverse T2P resources and better
service quality. If the Reverse Load Control Algorithm Switch of BE Flow is enabled, the
Reverse Admission Control Switch of BE Flow must also be enabled.
8.5.2 Reverse Load Control Algorithm Switch of BE Flow
(RVSLOADSW)
Description
This parameter specifies the reverse load control enabled on the current carrier. When the
reverse load reaches the specified threshold, some users are released actively. This ensures
stable reverse load of the system and prevents system breakdown.
Type
Ordinary internal parameter of the carrier level.
Related Commands

Setting Tradeoff
None.
Remarks
The reverse load of the EV-DO system is affected by the user number and interference from
neighboring cells. The interference signals may cause the increase of carrier load. When the
carrier load is very high, throughputs of all users in the sector are dramatically decreased but
the Tx is still high. In this case, some users are released actively. This improves the sector
stability and prevents system breakdown. If the Reverse Load Control Algorithm Switch of
BE Flow is enabled, the Reverse Admission Control Switch of BE Flow must also be
enabled.
8.5.3 Algorithm Selection Switch of BE Flow (ALGORITHMSW)
Description
This parameter determines whether the reverse load admission is performed on the basis of
the rate of a BE subscriber. It is used when RVSADDMITIONSW is set to ON.
Type
Ordinary internal parameter of the carrier level.
Related Commands
MOD DOARLCP
LST DORRMP
Value Range
ON (enabled), or OFF (disabled).
Default Value
OFF (disabled).
Setting Tradeoff
When applications of a carrier are BE services such as FTP or HTTP, the switch needs to be
set to OFF. When applications of the carrier are EF services such as VoIP or VT, the switch
needs to be set to ON.
Remarks
The T2P resources obtained by the BE service and EF service are different because of the
change in the reverse load. In addition, admission control cannot be implemented by using the
same load threshold. Hence, admission and load control thresholds are set in the system.
When the BE service is the main service in the system, set the admission and load thresholds
as required by the BE service, that is, set this switch to OFF. When the EF service is the main

service in the system, set the admission and load thresholds as required by the EF service, that
is, set this switch to ON.
8.5.4 BE Reverse Admission Threshold of BE Flow (RVSTHDBE)
Description
When RVSADDMITIONSW is set to ON and ALGORITHMSW are set to OFF, and when
log(b/(1-b)) exceeds the value of RVSTHDBE, the admission is not allowed.
Type
Ordinary internal parameter of the carrier level.
Related Commands
MOD DOARLCP
LST DORRMP
Value Range
100 to 300 (unit: 0.1 dB).
Default Value
93.
Setting Tradeoff
When the parameter is set to a small value, if the load threshold required by admission is low,
the rate enjoyed by accessed users can be improved, but fewer users can access the sector.
When the parameter is set to a high value, if the load threshold required by admission is high,
the rate enjoyed by accessed users is reduced, but more users can access the sector.
Remarks
This threshold must be lower than the BE Reverse Remove Threshold of BE Flow.
8.5.5 EF Reverse Admission Threshold of BE Flow (RVSTHDEF)
Description
The admission is not allowed under the following conditions: when RVSADDMITIONSW
and ALGORITHMSW are set to ON, when the ratio of number of ROTs greater than 7 dB to
number of total ROTs exceeds the value of RVSTHDBE, and when log(b/(1-b)) is higher
than the value of RVSTHDNOELARES.
Type

Setting Tradeoff
If the parameter is set to a small value, quality of the EF service can be ensured, but fewer
users can access the sector. If the parameter is set to a high value, quality of the EF service
cannot be ensured, but more users can access the sector.
Remarks
The admission threshold of the EF service is used when such service is the main service in a
sector. In the case of high system load, the EF service can ensure the allocation of T2P
resources. Therefore, there is no need to use the load threshold. The sector capacity threshold
(probability that RoT of the sector is larger than 7 dB does not exceed 1%) is used as the
admission threshold. This threshold along with No Elastic Resource EF Reverse Admission
Threshold of BE Flow is used for admission decision.
8.5.6 No Elastic Resource EF Reverse Admission Threshold of BE
Flow (RVSTHDNOELARES)
Description
The admission is not allowed under the following conditions: when RVSADDMITIONSW
and ALGORITHMSW are set to ON, when the ratio of number of ROTs greater than 7 dB to
number of total ROTs exceeds the value of RVSTHDEF, and when log(b/(1-b)) is higher
than the value of RVSTHDNOELARES.

Default Value
100.
Setting Tradeoff
None.
Remarks
The admission threshold of the EF service is used when such service is the main service in a
sector. A few BE service users, however, can make the RoT of the sector reach the sector
capacity threshold (probability that RoT of the sector is larger than 7 dB does not exceed 1%)
of the EF service in a short term. Therefore, the admission may be determined incorrectly. To
prevent this, when using the EF capacity threshold, you also need to determine the current
reverse load of the sector. Ensure that no valid BE service is available at this time so that the
access of new users is rejected.
8.5.7 BE Reverse Remove Threshold of BE Flow
(RVSREMTHDBE)
Description
This parameter is used to set the threshold for deleting a subscriber when
RVSADDMITIONSW and RVSLOADSW are set to ON and ALGORITHMSW is set to
OFF. When the system load reaches this threshold, the subscriber deletion (the subscriber
with a high reverse PER is to be deleted first) is enabled. The system load is measured by
log(b/(1-b)).
Type

Remarks
This threshold must be larger than the BE Reverse Remove Threshold of BE Flow. When a
DOA call has multiple legs, if the cause value reported by the BTS on one branch that is
carried in Abis-DO BTS Release Request is " release users after DOA reverse load control is
performed ", the call needs to be released.
8.5.8 EF Reverse Remove Threshold of BE Flow
(RVSREMTHDEF)
Description
This parameter is used to set the threshold for deleting a subscriber when
RVSADDMITIONSW, RVSLOADSW, and ALGORITHMSW are set to ON. When the
system load reaches this threshold, the deletion algorithm (the subscriber with a high reverse
PER is to be deleted first) is enabled. The system load is measured by log(b/(1-b)).
Type
Ordinary internal parameter of the carrier level.

available for the EF service.
Remarks
This threshold must be larger than the EF Reverse Remove Threshold of BE Flow.
8.5.9 Reverse Load Measure Period of BE Flow
(RVSLOADMEASPRD)
Description
This parameter specifies the period for the BTS to measure the reverse load (b/(1-b), that is,
the RAB busy/idle ratio under carriers).

Type
Internal parameter of the carrier level.
Related Commands
MOD DOARLCP

Value Range
0 to 100 (unit: s)
Default Value
1.
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a great value, the period for the BTS to measure the reverse load is
excessively long, and thus the changes of the reverse load cannot be reflected in time. If this
parameter is set to a small value, few sampling points are measured, and thus the load
reflection is inaccurate.
Remarks
In the access algorithm, the reverse load is measured on the basis of the RAB busy/idle ratio
under carriers. The ratio is applicable only in a data sampling period. Therefore, the BSC
delivers a sampling period to the BTS to specify the sampling period for the reverse load.

9.1.2 Metric State (METRICSTATE)
Description
This parameter specifies the initial scheduling level of flow. Various service types have
various QoS requirements, and you can ensure the service priority difference by setting
different MC priority factors for different services. The priority calculated by the scheduler is
expressed in the following Metric polynomial. MC7 > MC6 > MC5 > MC4 > MC3 > MC2 >
MC0 (MC0 , and MC7 are metric factors). The scheduler schedules the packet with the
highest priority. When comparing the priorities, the scheduler uses the polynomial calculation
method, that is, the packet with a larger METRICSTATE has a higher priority. If two packets
are of the same METRICSTATE, the scheduler compares the TS
BSM
or the DS
BSM
.


For TS services:


For DS services:


Type
Chip scheduler parameter of the system level.

Default Value
See Error! Reference source not found..
Setting Tradeoff
Different service types have different QoS requirements. You can ensure service priority
differences by setting different METRICSTATEs. The flow of the service type with a larger
METRICSTATE is more likely to be scheduled. The flow of the service type with a smaller
METRICSTATE is less likely to be scheduled.

Remarks
None.
9.1.3 Delay BoundIn Slots (DELAYBOUNDINSLT)
Description
This parameter specifies the maximum delay of DS service flow. If this parameter is set to 0,
the delay is not restricted. When the delay of the DS service flow data exceeds the
DELAYBOUNDINSLT, the scheduler directly discards the data.
Type
Chip scheduler parameter of the system level.
Related Commands
MOD DOFSP
LST DOFSP
Value Range
0 to 3900 (slot)
Default Value
See Error! Reference source not found..
Setting Tradeoff
For DS services, the value of this parameter cannot be set to 0. In addition, if the parameter is
set to a small value, packets may be discarded due to timeout when many subscribers use DS
service flow. Thus, the QoS is reduced. Therefore, you should try to improve the value of this
parameter within the range that is accepted by the DS.
Remarks
For the services (such as the VOIP) with certain delay requirements, the terminal directly
discards the data when receiving the data after a delay longer than the delay requirements. For
BE services, this parameter is set to 0. That is, the delay is not restricted.
9.1.4 Delay Threshold 1 (DELAYTHRLD1)
Description
This parameter specifies the threshold parameter of the algorithm that schedules priority
transient. The parameter is used for real-time services. The algorithm adjusts the priority level
MC according to the data delay, thus ensuring that the data with a longer delay can be
scheduled first. The BSM or BM priority is calculated as follows:

If the current delay of the byte is smaller than DELAYTHRLD1, set the priority of the
byte to METRICSTATE.

If the current delay of the byte is not smaller than DELAYTHRLD1 and smaller than
DELAYTHRLD2, set the priority of the byte to DELAYMETRICSTATE1.

If the current delay of the byte is not smaller than DELAYTHRLD2, set the priority of
the byte to DELAYMETRICSTATE2.
Type
Chip scheduler parameter of the system level.
Related Commands
MOD DOFSP
LST DOFSP
Value Range
0 to 60000 (slot) (The value "0" indicates that the parameter is invalid).
Default Value
See Error! Reference source not found..
Setting Tradeoff
The priority of the service with a smaller DELAYTHRLD1 is more likely to be improved. In
this case, real-time services differ from non-realtime services to a great extent.
Remarks
Data is treated differently according to the delay differentiated on the basis of
DELAYTHRLD1, DELAYTHRLD2, and DELAYBOUNDINSLT. If the delay is small, a low
priority is used. Thus, non-realtime services and real-time services have the same opportunity
to be scheduled. If DS services wait for a very long time, the scheduling level of the services
is improved. Thus, the DS service flow is sent immediately, and the services meet the QoS
requirements. If the waiting time of the DS service flow exceeds the DELAYBOUNDINSLT,
the data is discarded directly, thus preventing invalid data from occupying air interfaces.
Under the default configuration, the scheduling priority transient algorithm cannot be used.
9.1.5 Delay Threshold 2 (DELAYTHRLD2)
Description
This parameter specifies the threshold parameter of the algorithm that schedules priority
transient. For details, see DELAYTHRLD1.

9.1.8 Acceleration Offset (ACCLRTOFFSET)
Description
This parameter is used to set the scheduling weight factor (AccelerationOffset) in the formula
for calculating the BSM priority of DS flow. The parameter is valid for DS services only, and
it affects the sequence for the byte flow to enter candidate transmission instances. If two
queues are with the same level, the byte flow in the queue with a larger AccelerationOffset
first enters candidate transmission instances.

Setting Tradeoff
This parameter adjusts the priority of the service scheduling. The service with a higher
ACCLRTOFFSET is more likely to be scheduled. Therefore, you must consider all services
when setting this parameter.
Remarks
The BSM priority of DS services is calculated on the basis of the following formula:



The "CurrentDelay" in the preceding formula is the byte delay calculated by the scheduler. The
"AccelerationFactor" must match with DELAYBOUNDINSLT. AccelerationFactor is set by chips
instead of subscribers.

Setting Tradeoff
None.
Remarks
If the scheduler cannot demodulate the DRC value, DRC erasure occurs. In the EV-DO Rel. 0
system, the AN does not schedule the subscribers with DRC erasure. In this case, non-DS
services are not affected. In the EV-DO Rev. A system, real-time services have high delay
requirements. To prevent DRC erasure from affecting scheduling, you can use the DRC
erasure matching algorithm.


Each data flow of the AT is scheduled after entering multi-subscriber transmission instances if
it meets the following condition.

11 Other Parameters
11.1 Frame Exchange Parameters
11.1.1 Reverse Frame Combination Timer Length
(RFCOMBINET)
Description
This parameter specifies the maximum time difference allowed between the arrival of the
reverse service frame of the first branch and that of the last branch when the BSC combines
reverse legs.
Type
Internal ordinary parameter of the subrack level.
Related Commands
MOD DOSDUPARA
LST DOSDUPARA
Value Range
10 to 26 (unit: ms).
Default Value
10.
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a small value, the BSC cannot collect all the reverse service frames
of the legs, and thus the frame combination gain decreases. If this parameter is set to a great
value, the processing delay increases and does not meet the delay requirements of the DS
services.
Remarks
The AN enables the combination timer when receiving a new reverse trafic frame from a leg.

208


If the RTC MAC frame is a bad frame, the AN does not enable the combination timer
until the AN receives good RTC MAC frame from another leg.

If the AN does not receive any good frames when the combination timer expires, the
frames of certain legs must be lost. These lost frames are regarded as bad frames. If the
frames of the legs that have already been received by the AN are bad frames, they are
also regarded as bad frames.
11.1.2 Reverse Frame Transmission Path Jitter (RPDITHER)
Description
This parameter is used to detect whether the existing frame is valid. If the time when the
frame is actually received is not within the range of (FN x 26.667 ms the value of
RPDITHER) to (FN x 26.667 ms + the value of RPDITHER), this frame is regarded as an
invalid frame.
Type
Internal ordinary parameter of the subrack level.
Related Commands
MOD DOSDUPARA
LST DOSDUPARA
Value Range
40 to 208 (unit: 0.125 ms).
Default Value
81.
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a small value, large jitter is not allowed when the reverse frames are
combined. Thus, a great number of frames received by the AN are invalid. If this parameter is
set to a great value, the processing delay increases and the short delay required by the DS
services cannot be satisfied.
Remarks
If the received frames are invalid before the reverse frame combination timer expires, the
system continues to wait for the frames of other legs.
11.1.3 Max. Idle Frame Sending Times (MAXIDLEFRM)
Description
This parameter specifies the maximum number of IDLE frames that can be sent during
connection setup. If BSC does not receive an IDLE frame from the BTS until the maximum
number of idle frames is exceeded, the connection setup fails.

11.1.6 Maximum Number of Abis Handshake Failures
(HANDFAILCNT)
Description
An Abis handshake is performed between the BSC and the BTS. When the number of
handshake failures reaches the threshold specified by this parameter, the BSC regards that the
Abis service is disrupted, and then this service connection is released.
Type
Internal ordinary parameter of the subrack level.
Related Commands
MOD DOSDUPARA
LST DOSDUPARA
Value Range
1 to 40.
Default Value
20.
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a small value, connections can be abnormally released and the Abis
link will be incorrectly considered as unavailable. If this parameter is set to a great value,
fewer connections will be abnormally released and the Abis link state can be accurately
indicated.
Remarks
The BSC maintains the link (handshake) by periodically sending IDLE frames to the BTS in
the case of no forward service frames. The BTS periodically sends IDLE frames to the BSC in
the case of no reverse service frames. If the BSC does not receive a reverse service frame or a
reverse idle frame after the timer expires for N (the value of this parameter) times, the
handshake fails, and the connection is released by the DPUb.
11.1.7 Virtual SHO Monitor Timer Length (SHOMONITORT)
Description
When the BTS cannot demodulate the DRC or the DRC is assigned to another leg, the BTS
requests to stop sending data to this leg by sending a message to the AN. Then, the AN
enables the corresponding timer. If the AN does not receive the preceding message from the
BTS when the timer expires, the AN regards that call drop occurs or that the virtual handoff
fails.

Value Range
1 to 40 (unit: s).
Default Value
3
Setting Tradeoff
If this parameter is set to a small value, and if the forward radio environment deteriorates,
the AT enters the inactive state before the AN call drop timer expires, and the AT initiates a
connection request again. In this case, the call on the AN side is not released, and the
connection request is considered to be abnormal. Thus, an abnormal release with the reason
value 120e is initiated on the original connection, and the connection request is discarded.
Remarks
If this parameter of the AN is inconsistent with that of the AT, the AN initiates a negotiation
for the configuration of this parameter.
11.1.8 DRC Supervison Timer (DRCSUPERVISIONTMR)
Description
According to the forward call drop mechanism, if the number of DRC = 0 detected by the AT
exceeds (DRCSupervisionTimer x 10) + 240 ms, the reverse transmitter is shut down. Then,
wait TFTCMPRestartTx (12 control channel periods, that is 5.12s). During this period, if the
DRC is still 0, the AT shifts to the inactive state.
