Introduction

2.1

Function Introduction
The dy namic radio bearer control (DRB C) is to allocate resources reasonably according
to subscriber requirements and system resource utilization to make full use of the
bandwidth. ZTE RAN DRB C policies mainly include the following functions:
Initial Channel Allocation
During channel setup, the DRBC allocates proper channel and rate for the service
according to service requirements and system resourc e utilization status. Including:

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

Signaling Channel Alloc ation

Initial Service Channel Allocation

Conc urrent Service Channel Allocation

Initial Access Rate Allocation for DCH

Channel Switching
The DRB C selects appropriate transport channels according to the actual rate of PS
services. If the PS rate changes, the channel type also changes. The system monitors
the actual rat e of PS services. If the actual data flow is smaller than the allocat ed
bandwidth, the system decreases the configured bandwidth to save resources. When the
actual data flow is close to the allocated bandwidth, the system increases the configured
bandwidth to prevent the service from being affected.
During the session, the DRBC adjusts the service bandwidth and channel switching in
real-time according to various measurements. The conversation servic e uses DL
DCH/UL DCH, streaming services use CELL_DCH, and interactive and background
services us e CE LL_FACH or CELL_DCH. The figure of state transitions currently
supported by system is as follows:

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

CELL_DCH service uses channels of the following types: DL HS -DSCH/UL E-DCH,


DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH, and DL DCH/UL DCH. RAN will det ermine different channel
types for services based on different support capabilities of NodeB and UE, and
service feat ures. Switching could be performed between different channel types.
And the rates of DL DCH and UL DCH can be adjusted dynamically.
CELL_FA CH service can use DL FA CH/ UL RACH.
Except that it does not support the switching from URA _PCH to CELL_DCH di rectly,
the channels in URA _PCH, CELL_FA CH, and CELL_DCH states can be switched
among each other.

2.2

Dynamic Channel Type Transfer for R99 Service


R99 DRB C dynamically adjusts the bearer channel and real-time rate of PS services. It
ensures full utilization of radio resources, system stability, and service QoS .
During channel setup, the DRB C allocates radio channel and initial rate to the
service according to service requirements and system resource utilization status.

CS service and Streaming s ervice can use DCH as bearer. The DCH channel
parameters are set according to necessary GBR.

Interactive servic e and Background Servic e may use FACH/RA CH or DCH.

For PS services that use DCH as bearer, its initial access rate can b e set
according to configuration.

Dynamical DCH rat e adjustment.

DCH rate configuration should be consistent with actual traffic rate. When
actual traffic volume drops, DCH rate should be decreased accordingly.
Released resource can be used by other us ers. DCH rate can be increased
when actual traffic volume gets high so as to avoid affecting user experience .
The traffic volume is evaluated in uplink and downlink separately. That is,
uplink traffic volume decides uplink DCH bandwidth while downlink bandwidt h
depends on downlink traffic volume. In reality, it is common that the DCH
bandwidth should be adjusted simultaneously in uplink and downlink. In this

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

case, ZTE RAN adjusts the DCH bandwidth in uplink and downlink via a single
signalling procedure so that the signalling message on Uu is reduced.

DCH rate downgrade is an alternative method to decrease the system load


when overload or congestion occurs.

If the transmission power exceeds the preset high threshold, the network and
UE will decrease the data rate till the transmission power is lower than the
preset low threshold. By this method, PS servic e subscribers obtain relatively
high data rate when Node B is close, and obtain lower data rate when the
Node B is remote. Thus, the coverage of PS services is expanded. The c all
drop rate of high-rat e servic es during handovers is also decreased.

When UE performs a hard handover from one R99 cell to another due to
mobility, if the subscriber downlink admission at the current rate fails in the
target cell, the system will downgrade its DCH rate before retrying handover.

Channel switching:

If the practical rate of PS Interactive S ervice or PS Background S ervice below


the traffic volume threshold or if overload occurs in the cell, RAB can switch to
FACH/RACH from DCH and UE then ent ers the CE LL FACH state.

If t he practical rate exceeds the traffic volume threshold of FACH/RA CH, RAB
will switch to DCH and UE then enter the CE LL DCH state.

If the practical rate is zero, radio resource can be released temporarily. UE of


Cell FA CH state or Cell DCH state can be switched to URA PCH state to save
UEs battery power. If it is configured not to use PCH state, RRC can be
released immediately.

When the UE in URA_P CH state originates the cell update message due t o
uplink or downlink data transmission requirements or for new service setup,
the system allocates the channel by the UE servic e type before the UE is
handed over to PCH by the process of initial service channel allocation.

If a UE has resided in URA PCH state for period, the RRC will be released.

ZTE RAN system supports DRBC feature combined with other RRM policy including

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

Admission Control, Overload Control and Congestion Control. Priorities of users and
services are considered to implement dynamic optimization configuration of radio
bandwidth.

2.3

Dynamic Channel Type Transfer for HSDPA Service


After introducing HSDPA, ZTE RA N system is able to select bearer channel among
Hs-DS CH, DCH or FA CH for the service and configure radio parameters correspondingly,
according to service requirement and system resource utilization status.
ZTE RAN equipments support dy namic channel switching bet ween different channels in
order to satisfy services requirement and system resourc e in the following factor state:
Save system resourc e by adjusting channel type dynamically according to I/B
real-time traffic volume:

When downlink traffic volume is too large, trigger the channel switching from
FACH or DCH to HS-DSCH

When downlink traffic volume is too small, trigger the channel switching from
HS-DSCH to FACH

When there is no downlink traffic volume, trigger the channel switching from
HS-DSCH to PCH or idle

Reduce the system load by adjusting channel type according to cell load.
When cell load is too high, the user can switch from HS-DSCH to FACH to reduce
the system load and maintain the system stability.
Ensure service quality by adjusting channel type according to channel quality.
When UE in HS-DSCH channel moving to cell edge to trigger 1F event, it shows the
channel quality is bad, and then trigger the channel switching from HS -DS CH to
DCH.
Ensure the service continuity by adjusting channel type according to the target cell
for handover.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

If the capability of source cell and target cell is different during hand over, the
channel switching between HS-DSCH and DCH will be triggered to guarantee the
service continuity.
Downlink channel switching accompanies uplink channel switching: When downlink
channel is FACH, uplink channel is RACH; when downlink channel is HS -DSCH, uplink
channel can be DCH or E-DCH.

2.4

Dynamic Channel Type Transfer for HSUPA Service


After introducing HSUPA, ZTE RA N system is able to select bearer channel among
E-DCH, DCH or RACH for the service and configure radio paramet ers corres pondingly,
according to service requirement and system resource utilization status.
In order to accommodate requirements of service and practical status of system
resources, ZTE RAN system supports the following functions during channel switching:
Dynamically adjust channel type to s ave system resource according to the practical
traffic volume of I/B services:

If the traffic volume is high, the channel switching from RA CH or DCH to


E-DCH will be triggered

If the traffic volume is low, the channel switching from E -DCH t o RA CH will be
triggered

If no traffic volume, the channel switching from E-DCH to PCH or Idle will be
triggered

Adjust channel type to decrease the system load according to cell load
When the cell uplink is overloaded, the user can be switched to common RACH
from dedicated E-DCH to decrease the system load and guarantee the system
stabilized.
Adjust channel type to guarantee the service quality according to channel quality
If a UE on E-DCH channel moves to the edge of the cell and triggers 1F eve nt, it

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

10

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

indicates that the quality of current channel is bad and the channel switching from
E-DCH to DCH will be triggered.
Adjust channel type to guarantee mobile service continuity according to the
capability of target cell
If the capability of source cell and target cell is different during handover, the
channel switching between E-DCH and DCH will be triggered to guarantee the
service continuity.
Uplink channel switching accompanies downlink channel switching: If uplink channel is
RACH, downlink channel is FACH. If uplink channel is E-DCH, generally, downlink
channel is HS-DS CH.

2.5

RAB Negotiation & Re-negotiation


When RAB setup or relocation, it can execute QoS negotiation, also when the calling
process, it can execute QoS negotiation. RNC can get alternative GBR information
through RAB ASSIGNMENT REQUES Tor RE LOCATION REQUES T from CN, and take
this as the GB R level of this RAB. There are two situations of RAB QoS negotiation /
renegotiation: GBR increas e and GBR decrease.
GBR increase is triggered by event 4A of traffic volume measurement reports: the traffic
measurement reports of uplink DCH is from UE; the traffic measurement reports of
downlink DCH, downlink HS-DSCH and uplink E-DCH is from user plane. The traffic
measurement adopts the traffic measurem ent control of DRB C, such as 4A threshold,
trigger time and pending time.
GBR decrease is triggered by cell common overload. When c ommon overload appears,
the executions will be performed as follow: Decreasing the service rate of R99
subscribers, forcedly handing over to inter-frequency or inter-RAT neighboring cell,
deleting the radio link of any soft handover, decreasing GBR, forc edly releasing the
service. For more details of overload, see ZTE UMTS Overload Control Feature Guide )
For more details of RAB QoS negotiation / renegotiation, see ZTE UMTS Servic es and
Radio Access Bearers Feature Guide )

27.2Kbps High Speed Signaling RB


This feature enables the system to use the 27.2 kbps Signaling Radio Bearer (S RB)
when it establishes the RRC connection, and recovers the 3.4Kbps SRB after RAB is
established. If 27.2k SRB is set to apply on OMC, ZTE RA N will employ 27. 2kbps SRB to
speed up t rans ferring the NAS signaling messages (including location update message,
authentication message, and call setup message) bet ween the UE and the CN.
Compared with 13.6kbps SRB, the 27.2 kbps SRB can reduce the call setup time delay
and shorten the SMS service reception. For detail of 27.2 kbps SRB ,please see the
chapter 3.1.2.1Signaling Channel Allocation.

2.7

Fast Dormancy
This feature includes two functions: R8 Fast dormancy and Pre -R7 Fast dormancy
suppressing. R8 Fast dormancy function can extend UE battery usage and improve user
experience. Pre-R7 Fast dormancy suppressing function can reduce the control plane
signaling load for smart phone on the premise that guarant eeing user experience. For
the detail, please see the chapter 3. 5 Fast dormancy.

3.1.1

Introduction to Service Types


Because different types of servic es have different features, the services have different
requirements for the occupied channel res ources during channel allocation. Currently,
the services can be categorized into four types: Conversation, Int eractive, Background,
and Streaming.
The conversation and streaming services are real-time services, and interactive and
background services are not real-time services.

3.1.2

Initial Channel Allocation

3.1.2.1

Signaling Channel Allocation


The OMC provides various parameter options so that the signaling rat e can be flexibly
configured by the parameter InitRrcOnDch at different rates on different channels in the
case of RRC connection establishment.
When the parameter InitRrcOnDch is set to0 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
forcibly use DCH/DCH at 3.4k
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, the RNC configures the
bidirectional 3.4 kbit/s DCH for the UE to bear signaling.
When the parameter I nitRrcOnDch is set to1 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
forcibly use DCH/DCH at 13.6k
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, the RNC configures the
bidirectional 13.6 kbit/s DCH for the UE to bear signaling.
When the parameter I nitRrcOnDch is set to2 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
use common channel forcibly
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, the RNC configures the
uplink RA CH or downlink FACH channel for the UE to bear signaling.
When the parameter I nitRrcOnDch is set to3 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
choose channel automatically, and setting DCH/ DCH at 3.4k, when dedicated
channel is used
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, the RNC automatically
select the dedicated channel (3.4 kbit/s) or common channel based on the reason
for connection setup: if services are initiated immediat ely after the setup of RRC
connection, RNC will select DCH channel and configures bidirectional 3.4 kbit/s
bear signaling; if there is only LA updat e, instead of setting up s ervices, that should
be complet ed after RRC connection, RNC will select common channel to bear
signaling.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

13

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

When the parameter I nitRrcOnDch is set to4 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
choose channel automatically, and setting DCH/ DCH at 13.6k, when dedicated
channel is used
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, the RNC automatically
select the dedicat ed channel (13.6 kbit/s) or common channel bas ed on the reason
for connection setup: if services are initiated immediat ely after the setup of RRC
connection, RNC will select DCH channel and configures bidirectional 13.6 kbit/s
bear signaling; if there is only LA updat e, instead of setting up services, that should
be complet ed after RRC connection, RNC will select common channel to bear
signaling.
When the parameter I nitRrcOnDch is set to5 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
forcibly use DCH/DCH at 27.2k
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, the RNC configures the
bidirectional 27.2 kbit/s DCH for the UE to bear signaling.
When the parameter I nitRrcOnDch is set to6 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
choose channel automatically, and setting DCH/ DCH at 27.2k, when dedicated
channel is used
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, the RNC automatically
select the dedicat ed channel (27.2 kbit/s) or common channel bas ed on the reason
for connection setup: if services are initiated immediat ely after the setup of RRC
connection, RNC will select DCH channel and reconfigures bidirectional 27. 2 kbit/s
bear signaling; if there is only LA updat e, instead of setting up services, that should
be completed after RRC connection, RNC will reconfigure common channel to bear
signaling.
When the parameter I nitRrcOnDch is set to7 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
forcibly use HSPA.
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, if both the UE and the cell
support F-DPCH, both CresPara7 and RncFdpchSupInd are 1,(or both the UE
and the cell support E-FDPCH, both RncEfdpchSupInd and EfdpchSupInd are 1 ),
and both

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

the UE and the cell support E-DCH,, and SrbOnEdc hS wch is on, and the

14

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

channel quality measurement is not 1F event, the RNC configures the HSPA for the
UE to bear signaling.
When the parameter I nitRrcOnDch is set to8 ,the RNC sets the initial signaling to
choose channel automatically, and HSPA is prior, when Cell_DCH state is used
When a UE sends a connection setup request to RNC, the RNC automatically
select the Cell_DCH state channel or Cell_FA CH state channel based on the
reason for connection setup ,and HSPA is prior, when Cell_DCH state is used.
When the RNC sets the initial signaling to c hoose c hannel automatically, the signaling
will be s et on Cell_DCH state bearer in preference if the signaling is set due to t he
following reasons:

Originating Conversational

Call,

Originating Streaming Call,

Originating Interactive Call, Originating Background Call, Originating Subscribed traffic


Call, Terminating Conversational

Call,

Terminating Streaming Call,

Terminating

Interactive Call, Terminating Background Call, Emergency Call, Inter-RAT cell change
order, Call re-establishment, and MBMS ptp RB request; if the signaling is set due to
other reasons, it will be set on Cell_FA CH state bearer.
High-rate (13.6 kbit/s,27.2kbps) signaling bearer only exits in a separat e signaling
process, and will be restored to ordinary rate (3.4 kbit/s) after the service is set up.
High-rate signaling can effectively speed up the signaling int eraction during the UE call
setup and lower the call delay, but it occupies more radio resources than ordinary rate
signaling bearer. Using common channel for signaling bearer does not occupy the
dedicated resources. Considering that the separate signaling process is short, and the
radio connection is released or services are set up after the signaling interaction, the
configuration of high rate signaling is recommended.
Note: During RRC connection setup when signaling is carried on DCH , or when RAB has been
setup and signaling is carried on DPCH alone , and if signaling is setup with DCH low rate:
If DchSig68S wc h is on, it will substitute 3.4kbps signaling with 6.8 kbps signaling; Otherwise, If

DchSig68S wch is off, 3.4kbps signaling is used.

3.1.2.2

Initial Service Channel Allocation


For a RAB request of a service, the RNC chooses the initial channel for the service by
the servic e features (RAB parameters). Selection principles:

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

15

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

The conversation and streaming servic es use DL DCH/ UL DCH.


The interactive and background services can use DL DCH/ UL DCH and DL
FACH/UL RA CH.
Whether the DL DCH/UL DCH or DL FA CH/ UL RACH is used for interactive and
background services depends on the values of MaxBR in RAB allocation and Rfach and
Rrac h. If DL MaxBR is greater than or equal to Rfach, or UL MaxBR is greater than or
equal to Rrach, the DL DCH/UL DCH is chosen in preference. Otherwis e, the DL
FACH/UL RA CH is chosen in preference. If FACH/RA CH is rejected to access, the RNC
will reselect the DL DCH/UL DCH to access.

3.1.2.3

Concurrent Service Channel Allocation


The concurrent service means the setup of new service when a UE already has an online
call service.
If a subscriber is in the CELL_DCH state, the new service is also set up on the DCH
channel. The initial rate of the new service is determined by the same method as
that for a single service.
If the subscriber is in the CE LL_FACH state, the system judges whether to perform
state transitions according to the new service type.

If the new service should be set up on the DL DCH/ UL DCH channel according
to the channel alloc ation principles as for a single service, the UE should
switch from CELL_FACH state to CELL_DCH state, that is, all the online
services will be switched to DCH channel. The initial rate of the new service is
determined by the same method as that for a single service.

If the new service is set up on the DL FACH/UL RA CH channel according to


the channel allocation principles as for a single service, the UE keeps in the
CELL_FA CH state, without impact on the online services.

For concurrent CS and PS (S/I/B) services:


If the DRB C switch DrbcS wch is set to OFF, the DCH rate of PS (S/I/B) services is
the minimum DRBC rate (max (highest rate level of DRB C, GBR), MaxBR). The

are

configured

UlRateAdjLev[MAX _NUM_RATE_A DJUST]

by
and

DlRateAdjLev[MAX _NUM_RATE_A DJUST] separately.


If the DRB C switch DrbcSwch is ON, the DCH rate of PS (S/I/B) services is the
minimum DRB C rate of DCH (see 3.1.2.5). Rate increase is allowed based on rate

The Access Strategy of CS64K Service


According to some special scenarios where CS64K service is not expected to
access/handover in a cell, parameters Cs64k Switch and AdjCs64S witch are used to
control

whether cells support CS64k service in SRNC and DRNC, respectively. When

CS64k service is restricted in a cell, ingoing and handover of CS64k service are
forbidden.
Initial access scene: if the switch Cs64S witch in the cell is off ,CS 64k service is not
allowed to access; otherwise CS 64k service is allowed. For the UE in macro
diversity, if any cell of the active set is not allowed to access CS 64k service, it is not
allowed.
Handover scene: When handover happens in intra-RNC cells and CS64k service is
covered, if Cs64k Switch in target cell is off and UE supports CS64k falling back to
AMR12. 2k, then CS64k falls back to AMR12.2k and UE performs the related
disposal about handover, otherwise UE doesnt perform any disposal. When
handover happens in inter-RNC cells and CS 64k service is covered, if
AdjCs64k S witch in target cell is off and UE supports CS64k falling back to
AMR12. 2k, then CS64k falls back to AMR12.2k and UE performs the related
disposal about handover, otherwise UE doesnt perform any disposal. If the
configuration in DRNC cell and SRNC cell is not given, the cell is defaulted to

3.1.2.5

DCH Initial Access Rate for PS Service


The initial access rate of DL DCH/ UL DCH of PS services is determined in t he following
way:
If t he DRB C switch DrbcS wch is set to OFF, the DCH initial rate is min(max (t he highest
rate level of DB RC, GBR), MaxBR). The uplink and downlink DRB C rate levels are
configured

by

UlRateA djLev[ MAX_NUM_RATE_A DJUST]

and

DlRateAdjLev[MAX _NUM_RATE_A DJUST] separately,the MaxBR is the maximum bit


rate of RAB alloc ation by Iu interfac e.
If the DRB C switch DrbcS wch is ON, the DCH initial rate is min(max (Initial Access Rate
for DCH, GBR), MaxBR, DCH Limited Rate). Here, the uplink and downlink Initial
Access Rate for DCH is configured by parameter InitialRat eUl and InitialRateDl
separately, If the admission decision for the DCH initial rate is failed, UL and DL DCH will
try to access with the minimum DRBC rate of DCH at the same time, which is defined as
min( max(the lowest rate level of DB RC, GBR), MaxBR, DCH Limited Rate).
Here, for the DCH Limited Rate:
In the case of intra-RNC, parameters RtMaxUlRateDch / RtMaxDlRateDch (for RT
service) and NrtMaxUlRateDch / Nrt MaxDlRateDch (for NRT service) are used to limited
the DCH maximum rate of uplink and downlink respectively.
In the case of inter-RNC, parameters Rt MaxUlRateDc hD / RtMaxDlRateDchD (for RT
service) and Nrt MaxUlRateDchD / Nrt MaxDlRateDchD (for NRT service) are used to
limited the DCH maximum rate of uplink and downlink res pectively. If the relat ed
parameters are not configured in the neighboring cells, the restriction decision does not
effect.
In the case of macro diversity, the DCH Limited Rate is set to the minimum limited rate
value of all the cells in the active set.

Channel Switching
The channel switching and dynamic resource adjustments are performed only when t he
DRB C switch (DrbcSwc h) is ON.
During the session, the dynamic channel switching for t he R99 system is to adjust the
service bandwidth and hand over channels in real-time according to the measurements
of traffic, cell load, DL DTCP, and UL UE Txp. The figure below shows the R99 channel
switching that the system currently supports according to the R99 protoc ol.

3.1.3.1

DL DCH -> DL DCH (Rate Increase)


Rate increase triggered by downlink traffic
The DCH to DCH rate increase is based on the traffic measurement report (E vent 4A)
from the user plane and determined by the dedicated transmission power of t he
subscriber and cell load.
The 4A event is defined as the t raffic measurement larger than an absolute threshold.
See 3.1.4.1Traffic Measurement for its detailed definition.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

19

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

The E vent A is defined as that the Node B downlink dedicated transmission power
(D-TCP ) is greater than an abs olute threshold. The E vent B is defined as that t he Node B
downlink dedicat ed transmission power (D-TCP) s smaller t han an abs olute threshold.
See 3.1.4.3Node B Dedicat ed TCP Measurement for detailed definitions.
The downlink DCH rate increase is triggered in the case of the following conditions:
The DCH rate adjustment triggered by traffic switch DchAdjRateS wc h is on.
The system receives consecutive DchE4aThd traffic measurement reports (E vent
4A) from the user plane. (Note: if the system receives a traffic measurement report
(E vent 4B) from the user plane when the receiving times are smaller than the
threshold, the corresponding counter is cleared)
The system receives consecutive DtcpEbThd measurement reports (E vent B) of
NodeB D-TCP, that is, the UE is in B state. (Note: if the system receives a
measurement report (E vent A) of NodeB when the receiving time is smaller than the
threshold, the corresponding counter is cleared.)
The downlink load of the cell is not overloaded (the downlink load is determined by
TCP. For details of overload t hres hold, see ZTE UMTS Overload Control Feature
Guide)
For non-macro diversity, in the case of DCH rate increase:
The target rate of NRT DCH is min (next rate level greater than the current rate in the
DRB C downlink rate levels DlRat eAdjLev[ MAX_NUM_RATE_A DJUST], DCH Limited
Rate, DL MaxB R). The MaxBR is the maximum bit rat e during RAB allocation.
The target rate of RT DCH is min (next rate level greater than the current rate in the
DRB C downlink rate levels DlRat eAdjLev[ MAX_NUM_RATE_A DJUST], DCH Limited
Rate, DL MaxB R).
For macro diversity, in the case of DCH rate increase:
The target rate of NRT Downlink DCH rate is min (next rate level greater than the current
rate in DRBC downlink rate levels DlRateA djLev[ MAX_NUM_RATE_ADJ UST], DL
MaxB R, DCH Limited Rate, MaxRateMD).

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

20

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

The target rate of RT Downlink DCH rate is min (next rate level greater than the c urrent
rate in DRBC downlink rate levels DlRateA djLev[ MAX_NUM_RATE_ADJ UST], DL
MaxB R, the minimum

DCH Limited Rate, MaxRateMD).

Here, for t he DCH Limited Rate explanation, please see 3.1.2.5; The MaxRat eMD is
the maximum rate thres hold allowed for DCH when the UE is in macro diversity.
In addition, in case of the concurrence of C (CS) services and PS (S/I/B) services, the
additional principles of rate increase of PS services are as follows:
Determine the maximum rate threshold of NRT PS (I/B) services by distinguish the
rates of C (CS) services themselves

If the rate of C (CS ) services is less than or equal to CRateThrd, the sum of
downlink rat es of concurrent PS services of NRT can not exceed
DlPsRateLmtLowC

If the rate of C (CS) services exceeds CRateThrd, the sum of downlink rates of
concurrent PS services of NRT can not exceed DlPsRateLmtHighC

The rate of streaming services is not restricted by the above rate threshold.

3.1.3.2

DL DCH -> DL DCH (Rate Decrease)


The DCH rate is decreased in order to:
Release some of the bandwidths of the subscriber to other subscribers to improve
the bandwidth utilization ratio when the required bandwidth for data transmiss ion of
the subscriber is decreased.
Lower the bandwidth of the subscriber and transmission power to ensure the QoS
for the s ubscriber when the downlink transmission power of the subscriber is too
high.
Lower the bandwidth of the subscriber and the system load to ensure the system
stability when the cell load is too high.
Therefore, the downlink DCH rate decrease can be triggered by the following factors:

The DCH rate adjustment triggered by traffic switch DchAdjRateS wch is open.
The system receives consecutive DchE4bThd traffic measurement reports (E vent
4B) from the user plane. (Note: if the system receives a traffic measurement report
(E vent 4A) from the user plane when the receiving times are smaller than the
threshold, the corresponding counter is cleared.)
None-real-time I/B services: [current uplink rate of the UE is greater than or equal to
the rate threshold Rrach for RA CH switching] or [downlink target rat e is greater than
or equal to the rate threshold Rfach for FA CH switching] (if the system switch
FachSwch for CELL_FA CH switching is closed, the above condition is not taken
into consideration); real-time S services: current rate exceeds the GB R of RAB
allocation
In the case of rate increas e of DCH, the target rate is calculated by the formula: max

measurement report (E vent B) by Node B when the receiving times are smaller than
the threshold, the corresponding counter is cleared.)
Non-real-time I/B services: current rate is greater than minimum rate in DCH (lowest
rate level configured by DlRateAdjLev[ MAX_NUM_RATE _ADJUST] ); real-time S

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

The UE performs hard handover from one R99 cell to another due to mobility, if the
subscriber downlink admission at the current rate fails in the target cell, the system uses
the minimum DRBC rate t o admit the user again. The minimum rate is min (max (lowest
level of DRBC downlink rate levels DlRateAdjLev[ MAX_NUM_RATE _ADJ UST], DL

services which exceed DCH rate limitation Nrt MaxDlRateDch or Rt MaxDlRateDch. If so,
choose no more than 5 users to decrease rat e, and the NRT traffic target rate is
Nrt MaxDlRateDch and NRT traffic target rate is Rt MaxDlRateDc h

UL DCH -> UL DCH (Rate Increase)


1.

Rate increase triggered by uplink traffic.

The DCH to DCH s witching for uplink rate increase is based on the traffic measurement
report (E vent 4A) by the UE and determined by the cell's dedicated transmissi on power
and cell load.
The 4A event is defined as the t raffic measurement larger than an absolute threshold.
See 3.1.4.1Traffic Measurement for its detailed definition.

DCH Limited Rate, MaxRateMD).
Here, for t he DCH Limited Rate explanation, please see 3.1.2.5; The MaxRat eMD is
the maximum rate thres hold allowed for DCH when the UE is in macro diversity.
In addition, in case of the concurrence of C (CS) services and PS (S/I/B) services, the
additional principles of PS service rate increase are as follows:
Determine the maximum rate threshold of NRT PS (I/B) services by distinguish the
rates of C (CS) services themselves.

Lower the bandwidth of the subscriber and transmission power to ensure the QoS
for the subscriber when the uplink transmission power of the subscriber is too high.
Lower the bandwidth of the subscriber and the system load to ensure the system

Therefore, the uplink DCH rate decrease can be triggered by various factors, such as:
Rate decrease triggered by uplink traffic
Rate decrease triggered by UE uplink dedicated transmission power
Rate decrease triggered by cell uplink load
Rate decrease triggered by uplink resource congestion.
Rate decrease triggered by mobility

2.

Rate decrease triggered by UE uplink dedicated transmission power

The DCH to DCH switching for uplink rate decrease can be triggered by the UE uplink
dedicated transmission power (E vent 6A). When the UE is far away from the base station
and its transmission power reaches the maximum, the UL DCH rate can be decreased to
lower the UE transmission power to avoid interferenc e with other subscribers. When t he
UE comes close to the base station, the traffic can trigger the UL DCH rate increase.
The E vent 6A is defined as that the UE dedicat ed transmission power exceeds an

The E vent 4B0 is defined as that the value of traffic measurement value is 0. See
3.1.4.1Traffic Measurement for its detailed definition.
The switching from CE LL_DCH (DL DCH/ UL DCH) to URA_P CH is triggered in the case
of the following conditions:
The system switch PchSwch for URA _PCH switchingis open.
The services are interactive or background services.
The system receives consecutive DToPchThd traffic measurement reports with
measurement value of 0 from the user plane and UE (Note: if the system receives a
report with measurement value of non-zero value when the receiving times are
smaller than the threshold, the corresponding counter is cleared)
When in macro diversity status, all the best radio links belong to S -RNC.
If the concurrent services exist, it is requi red that all the services should meet the
condition for switching to URA_P CH.
If the concurrenc e of CS and PS services or multiple PS services occurs, and both the
uplink and downlink traffic measurement values of a PS I/B service are 0, and then the
system receives consecutive DToPchThd traffic measurement reports of E vent 4B 0 from
the user plane and UE: if GResPara4 is set to 0:support PS (0 kbps/0 kbps), the rate of
the PS service is decreased to 0 kbps /0 kbps, and keep in CELL_DCH state without
switching; if GResPara4 is set to 1:not support PS (0 kbps/0 kbps ), the rate of t he PS
service is decreased to the minimum DRB C rate.

When the UE uses the CELL_FA CH to bear the int eractive and background servic es, the
switching from CELL_FA CH to URA _PCH can be triggered by the traffic measurement
report (E vent 4B 0) from the user plane and UE.
The switching from CELL_FACH to URA_P CH is triggered in the cas e of the following

2.

URA _PCH -> CELL_FACH (DL FACH/UL RA CH)

When the UE in URA_P CH state originates the cell update message due to uplink or
downlink data transmission requirements or for new service s etup, the system allocates
the channel by the UE service type before the UE is handed over to PCH by the process
of initial service channel allocation. This applies to interactive and background services.

The services are interactive or background services.
The system receives cons ecutive DToI dleThd traffic measurement reports with
measurement value of 0 from the user plane and UE. (Note: If the system receives the

3.1.4.1

Traffic Measurement
The traffic measurement includes the BO measurements of UTRAN and UE service
buffer capacities, which are respectively measured from the user plane and UE.
RLC mode of Traffic measurement report is decided by MeasRptTrMod. If AM mode is
selected, RNC will require UE ret ransmit error or discontinue S DU. If UM mode is
selected, ret ransmission is not available. The quantity of traffic measurement is
controlled by MeasQuantity; MeasQuantity could be 1:RLC buffer payload, 2:A verage
RLC buffer payload 3:Variance of RLC buffer payload. In traffic meas urement cont rol
message, whet her report the RLC BO is indicated by RptRlcBufInd, average RLC BO is
indicated by RptRlcAveInd and variance of RLC BO is indicated by RptRlcVarInd..
For services using AM RLC mode to transmit data, the BO value of a RB is the sum of
RLC queue-to-send, retransmission queue, and data in logical channel. The user plane
uses the average of BO sample values collected in AverageTime to trigger the event.
The UE uses BO sample values collected in 20 ms to trigger the event. In traffic
measurement control message, Periodical Reporting / E vent Trigger Reporting Mode IE
take the value of Rpt Crt.

The absolute threshold (such as parameter RptThres[ MAX_UE_TRV_MEAS_EVE NT] )
is configured as follows:
The smaller the threshold value of 4A event is, the quicker the system responses to
the service demand of the UE, and the sooner the bandwidth increase is triggered,
so as to allocate more radio res ources. An d vice versa.
The bigger the threshold value of 4B event is, the quicker the system responses to
the service demand of the UE, and the sooner the occupied bandwidth is decreased.

TrigTime[MA X_UE_TRV_MEAS_EVE NT]

and

The smaller the value of TrigTime[MA X_UE_TRV_MEAS_EVENT] for 4A event is,
the quicker the control plane rec eives the reports and increases the bandwidth
when the traffic measurement meets the threshold for triggering the event 4A.
Therefore, the demand of service rate of UE is reflected in a better way. And vice
versa. However, if the paramet er is configured with a very low value, the system will
response to the service demand which fluctuates in a ve ry short moment, resulting
in unnecessary bandwidth increase.
The smaller the value of PendingTime[MA X_UE_TRV_MEAS_EVE NT] for 4A event
is, the quicker the control plane receives consecutively the reports and increases
the bandwidt h when the traffic measurement meets the threshold for triggering the
event 4A. Therefore, the demand of service rate of UE is reflected in a better way.
And vice versa. However, if the parameter is configured with a very low value,
reporting event 4A will resulting in considerable bandwidth occupation.
The smaller the value of TrigTime[MA X_UE _TRV _MEAS_EVENT] for 4B event is,
the quicker the control plane receives consecutively the reports and decreases the
bandwidth when the traffic measurement meets the threshold for triggerin g the
event 4B. Therefore, the demand of service rate of UE is reflected in a better way.
And vice versa. If the parameter is configured wit h a very low value, the system will
response to the service demand which fluctuates in a very short moment, resultin g
in unnecessary bandwidth decrease.
The smaller the value of P endingTime[MA X_UE _TRV_MEAS _EVENT] of 4B event
is, the quicker the control plane receives consecutively the reports and decreases
the bandwidt h when the traffic measurement meets the threshold for triggering the
event 4B. Therefore, the demand of service rate of UE is reflected in a better way.
And vice versa. However, if the parameter is configured with a very low value,
reporting event 4B will resulting in considerable bandwidth occupation. Therefore,
the feeling of subscriber and bandwidth utilization should be taken into
consideration before configuration.
The rate increase process is triggered when the control plane or UE receives the

UE internal TxP Measurement


The UE internal measurement mainly measures the UE transmission power (TxP) by
event report,
Before obtaining UE internal measurement parameters, first find the UE Internal
Measurement Configuration Index (UeInt MCfgNo) from UE internal measurement
relationship (UeInt ) configuration items, based on the Cid and the measurement purpose
(PsEvtMeasTP1) ; then find a relevant set of paramet ers from UE internal measurement
relationship (UeInt ) configuration items, based on the UE Internal Measurement
Configuration Index (UeInt MCf gNo).
Note: Each UeInt MCfgNo corresponds to one measurement purpose, indicated with t he
parameter UeInt MCfgNote.
There are two kinds of event, Event 6A and E vent 6B:
E vent 6A:when the UE TxP measurement value is greater than a certain absolute
threshold

and

this

condition

lasts

for

moment

(TrigTime[ MAX_UE_INTE R_MEAS _EVENT] ), the E vent 6A is triggered;


E vent 6B: when the UE TxP measurement value is smaller than a certain absolute

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

44

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

threshold

and

this

condition

lasts

for

moment

(TrigTime[ MAX_UE_INTE R_MEAS _EVENT]), the E vent 6B is triggered.


The threshold parameter of E vent 6A and E vent 6B (TxPowerThres )is a delta val ue
relative to min(UE maximum t ransmitted power, uplink DP CH maximum transmission
power).
Here, MA X_UE _INTE R_MEAS_EVE NT is configured by MeasE vtNum .
The higher the value of event 6A is, the harder uplink DCH rate decrease can be
triggered based on power, that is, the UE TxP will be higher with more power
consumption and interference with other subscribers. If the power consumption and
interference with other subscribers are not taken int o consideration, the event 6A can be
configured with a high value; the lower the value of event 6A is, the easier the uplink
DCH rate decrease can be triggered by the power, and then the user experience is
affected.
The higher the threshold of event 6B is, the easier the reported power can stay in 6B
status, so as to retrigger the rat e increase by the traffic. However, a certain margin
should be configured bet ween the thresholds of event 6A and event 6B, otherwise, there
may be a situation: aft er the rate is decreased based on event 6A, the rat e increase is
triggered by the traffic demand; the lower the threshold of event 6B is, the harder the
reported power can stay in 6B status, that is, it is harder to trigger the rate increase by
traffic volume, and then the user ex perience is affected.
The correspondence bet ween other parameters that need to be filled in UE internal
measurement control message and OMCR configuration is described as follows:

Node B Dedicated TCP Measurement


The Node B dedic ated TCP is related with the UE, it indicates the downlink transmission
power for the UE (the TCP on given carrier, given scramble, and given channelization
code) is measured by the Node B. It acts as a factor for triggering bandwidth dec reas e as
well as a restriction for bandwidth increase. The Node B dedicated TCP measurement
which is used to trigger DRB C rate adjustment is reported periodically, the period is
configured by RptPrd, because of the periodical report, the Event A/B is decided by RNC.
Two sets of measurement parameters are configured:
E vent A: when the NodeB D-TCP measurement value is greater than a specific
absolute threshold (EvtAbTcpThrd[3] when Nb DMCfgNot e is 2), event A is triggered.
E vent A is used to trigger the downlink rate dec rease. When an event A is reported,
the downlink transmission power of UE is considered to be in a high power status.
E vent B: when the NodeB D-TCP measurement value is smaller than a specific
absolute threshold (EvtAbTcpThrd[3] when NbDMCfgNote is 3), event B is triggered.
The event B is used to check whether the downlink transmission power is in a low
status. When an event B is report ed, the downlink transmission power of UE is
considered to be in a low power status. The downlink rate increase can be triggered
by traffic.
Here, EvtAbTcpThrd[3] is a delta value relative to DP CH downlink maximum
transmission power which is related with service type. And EvtAbTcpThrds value of
different DCH rate level can be configured differently based on the paramet er

The higher the value of event A is, the harder the downlink DCH rate decrease can be
triggered by the power, that is, the power of single UE is higher. If the system power
restriction is not taken into consideration, the event can be configured with a high value;
the lower the value of event A is, the easier the downlink DCH rat e decrease can be
triggered by the power, and then the user experience is affected.
The higher the threshold of event B is, the easier the reported power can stay in B status.
However, a certain margin should be configured bet ween the thresholds of event A and
event B, otherwise, there may be a situation: after the rate is decreased based on event
A, the rate increase is triggered by the traffic demand; the lower the threshold of event B
is, the harder the reported power can stay in B status, that is, it is harder to tri gger the
rate increase by traffic. Thus, the user experience is affected.
If PS services exist, and downlink DRBC DrbcS wch is on, and DlP wrDasf is on, and no
less than one PS service uses downlink DCH as bearer , , the measurement is triggered.
If the condition is not met, the Node B dedicat ed TCP measurement is switched off .

Signaling Channel Allocation


The signaling channel allocation process upon the RRC connection setup is the same as
the R99 policy.
For the setup of RAB allocation servic e, the signaling channel is selected by the following
principles:
The low-speed bearer signaling DL DCH/ UL DCH is selected if there is DL DCH/UL
DCH bearer service.
If all the services are on the DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH: if both the UE and the cell

support F-DPCH, both CresPara7 and RncFdpchSupInd are 1,(or both the UE
and the cell support E-FDPCH, both RncEfdpchSupInd and EfdpchSupInd are 1 ),
then the signaling is on the DL HS -DS CH/ UL DCH; otherwis e, the signaling is
mapped to DCH/DCH low rate signaling.

3.2.2

Initial Service Channel Allocation

3.2.2.1

Initial Service Channel Allocation


For a RAB request of a service, the RNC chooses the initial channel for the service by
the service features (RAB parameters). For the HS-DS CH in the HSUPA cells, the
selectable channel types as follows:
Conversation servic es use DL DCH/ UL DCH channels.
Streaming services can use DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH and DL DCH/UL DCH channels.
Interactive and background servic es can use DL HS -DS CH/ UL DCH, DL DCH/UL
DCH, and DL FACH/UL RACH channels.
Channel allocation of the HSDPA UE in the R99 is the same as that for R99 initial
service.
3.

For the UE supporting HS-DSCH in the HSDPA cell:

The principles for CS 64k service is the same as R99, see 3.1.2.4 The Access
Strategy of CS 64k Service.
The principles for selecting channels for streaming services are as follows:
If the condition of [channel quality as non-1F event] is met, select the DL HS-DSCH/UL
DCH with priority. If selecting the DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH is failed (for example, downlink
HS-DSCH is failed to admit), select the DL DCH/UL DCH.
Otherwise, streaming services use DL DCH/UL DCH.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

48

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

The E vent 1F is defined as that the measurement value Ec/No is smaller than an
absolute threshold. See 3.2.4.1Pilot Channel Quality Measurement for the detailed
definition.
The principles for selecting the channel type for interactive and background services
are as follows:
If dlMaxBR >= Rfach or ulMaxBR >= Rrach, select the CELL_DCH.
Otherwise, select the DL FACH/ UL RACH with priority. If the DL FACH/UL RA CH is failed
to admit, select the CELL_DCH.
When the CE LL_DCH is selected:
If the condition of [channel quality as non-1F event] is met, select the DL HS-DSCH/UL
DCH with priority. If selecting the DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH is failed (for example, downlink
HS-DSCH is failed to admit), select the DL DCH/UL DCH.
Otherwise, interactive and background services use DL DCH/ UL DCH.
For the UE selecting DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH, the way to determine the initial rate for PS
(S/I/B) service on the UL DCH is the same as that for R99. The rate of the DL HS -DSCH
is controlled by the NodeB in real time, out of the control of the RNC. For the UE
selecting the DL DCH/UL DCH, the way to determine the initial rates for DL DCH and UL
DCH are the same as that for R99.

3.2.2.2

Concurrent Service Channel Allocation


The concurrent service means the setup of new service when a UE already has an online
call service. All concurrent PS services use the same channel as bearer.
Channel allocation for the UE supporting only HS-DS CH in the HSDPA cell is as follows:
Concurrent
Service Types

Channel Type
If any of I/B services meet the condition of [dlMaxB R >= Rfach or

I/B+I/B

ulMaxBR >= Rrach] and the channel quality is non-1F event, select
the DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH with priority. If selecting the DL
HS-DSCH/UL DCH is failed (for example, downlink HS-DSCH is

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

failed to admit), select the DL DCH/UL DCH.


If all the I/B services meet the condition of [dlMaxBR < Rfach and
ulMaxBR < Rrach], select DL FACH/UL RA CH with priority. If the
selecting is failed, and the channel quality is non -1F event, select
DL HS-DS CH/UL DCH. If selecting DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH is failed
(for example, downlink HS -DS CH is failed to admit), select DL
DCH/UL DCH.
CS services select the DL DCH/UL DCH.
If the UE meets the [downlink concurrent capabilities of the DP CH
and HS -DS CH for CS services] and channel quality is non-1F
I/B+CS

or

S+CS

or

I/B+S+CS

event, select the DL HS-DS CH/ UL DCH with priority for PS (I/B or
S) services. If selecting the DL HS-DS CH/ UL DCH is failed (for
example, downlink HS-DS CH is failed to admit), select the DL
DCH/UL DCH.
If the UE does not meet downlink concurrent capabilities of the
DPCH and HS-DSCH for CS services, select the DL DCH/UL DCH
for PS (I/B or S) services.
If the condition of [channel quality as non-1F event] is met, select

I/B+S or S+S

the DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH with priority. If selecting the DL


HS-DSCH/UL DCH is failed (for example, downlink HS-DSCH is
failed to admit), select the DL DCH/UL DCH.

For the UE selecting DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH, the way to determine the initial rate for PS
(S/I/B) service on the UL DCH is the same as that for R99. The rate of the DL HS -DSCH
is controlled by the NodeB in real time, out of the control of the RNC. For the UE
selecting the DL DCH/UL DCH, the way to determine the initial rates for DL DCH and UL
DCH are the same as that for R99.
Channel allocation for UE supporting only HS-DSCH in the R99 cell is the same as that
for R99 concurrent service.

3.2.3

Channel Switching
During the session, the dynamic channel switching in the HSDPA system is to adjust the
service bandwidth and hand over channels in real time according to the measurements
of traffic and channel quality. The figure below shows the channel switching that the

CELL_DCH (DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH) -> CE LL_FA CH

When the UE is in the CE LL_DCH status, the switching from CELL_DCH (DL
HS-DSCH/UL DCH) to CELL_FACH can be triggered by the traffic measurement
report (E vent 4B ) from the user plane and UE.
The switching from CELL_DCH (DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH) to CELL_FACH is
triggered in the case of the following conditions:

The system switch FachS wch for CE LL_FACH switching is open.

The services are interactive or background services.

The system receives consecutive ToFtimesThr traffic measurement reports


(E vent 4B) from the user plane, and consecutive ToFtimesThr traffic
measurement reports (E vent 4B) from the UE ,and switch is triggered by
downlink report. (Note: if the system receives a traffic measurement report
(E vent 4A) from the user plane or UE when the receiving times are smaller
than the threshold, the corresponding counter is clear. )

required)

If the concurrent services exist, it is required that all the services should m eet the
condition for switching to CE LL_FA CH.
If the condition for CELL_FACH switching is met, but the CELL_FA CH fails the
admission, and the current uplink rat e is great er than the minimum rate that UL
DCH can bear, namely, the lowest rate level configured by UlRateAdjLev
[MAX_NUM_RATE_ADJ UST], UL DCH rate decrease is selected.
ii.

CELL_FA CH -> CELL_DCH (DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH)

When the UE is in the CELL_FA CH status, the switching from CE LL_FA CH to


CELL_DCH (DL HS -DS CH/ UL DCH) can be triggered by the traffic measurement
report (E vent 4A ) from the user plane or UE.
The switching from CELL_FACH to CELL_DCH (DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH) is
triggered in the case of the following conditions:

The system receives consecutive FachE4aThd traffic measurement reports


(E vent 4A) from the user plane or UE. (Note: if the system receives a traffic

Switching from DCH to HS -DS CH triggered by traffic

When the subscriber uses the DL DCH/UL DCH, the switching from DL DCH to DL
HS-DSCH can be triggered by the measurement report (E vent 4A) from the user plane to
increase the system capacity.
The E vent 1F is defined as that the measurement value Ec/No is smaller than an
absolute threshold. See 3.2.4.1Pilot Channel Quality Measurement for the detailed
definition.
The switching from DL DCH to DL HS -DS CH is triggered in the case of the following
conditions:
The system receives consecutive DchE4aThd traffic measurement reports (E vent
4A) from the user plane. (Note: if the system receives a traffic measurement report
(E vent 4B) from the user plane when the receiving times are smaller than the
threshold, the corresponding counter is cleared.)
The channel quality does not report 1F event.
Both the terminal and system support HS -DS CH.
Note: HS -DS CH cannot switch to DCH based on traffic volume measurement.
Special cases of concurrent services during channel switching:
If all the concurrent services are PS services and one service triggers the switching
from DL DCH to DL HS-DSCH, the DL DCH of all services is switched to DL
HS-DSCH.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

If t here is CS service in the concurrent services and the UE is capable of the DL


DCH and DL HS -DS CH c oncurrency (maximum rate on the DP CH is reported by
the UE), the DL DCH of only PS services is switched to DL HS -DS CH; otherwise,
the switching is not implemented.
If the service is on the DCH, the event 4A triggered by the user plane meets the condition
for rate inc rease in the DL DCH -> DL HS-DSCH switching, but the DL HS -DS CH fails
the admission or the DL HS-DSCH is not supported, select DL DCH rate inc rease, and
the uplink remains on the DCH. In the case of DL DCH rate increase, the other conditions
of DL DCH rate increase must be satisfied (see DL DCH -> DL DCH (rate increase)).
2.

Switching from HS-DSCH to DCH triggered by channel quality

When a subscriber is using the DL HS-DS CH/ UL DCH, the DL HS-DSCH switching to DL
DCH can be triggered by channel quality measurement (E vent 1F triggered by pilot
signal). This is because that the subscriber remaining on HS-DSCH will worsen the QoS
and lower t he system capacity when the bit rate requirements of streaming services
carried on HS-DSCH are not satisfied and the channel quality deteriorates.
The E vent 1F is defined as that the measurement value Ec/No is smaller than an
absolute threshold. See 3.2.4.1Pilot Channel Quality Measurement for the detailed
definition.
The switching from DL HS-DSCH to DL DCH is triggered in the case of the following
conditions:
Channel quality measurement switches for the current PS service (IB ChQS wch,
SChQS wch) are open (Note: when PS S and I/B service are concurrent, if any of
IBChQS wc h and SChQS wch is open, these switches are considered open).
The channel quality triggers E vent 1F.
Handling principle of concurrent services in channel switching: if the concurrent services
are PS services, the DL HS-DSCH for all the services are switched to DL DCH.
During the fallback from DL HS-DSCH to DL DCH, the rate is the DCH initial rate, see
3.1.2.5

HS-DSCH <-> DCH Switching triggered by mobility

During the PS services carried on downlink HS-DSCH, when the UE hands over from an
HSDPA cell to R99 cell for mobility but the target cell does not support the HS -DS CH, the
downlink channel will switch from HS-DSCH to DCH. The rate is the DCH initial rate , see
3.1.2.5
During the PS services carried on DL DCH/ UL DCH, the UE may roam from a R99 cell to
HSDPA cell by hard handover for mobility. If the target cell and UE support the HSDPA,
the switching from DL DCH to DL HS-DSCH occurs along with the handover.
For more details of mobility, see ZTE UMTS handover Control Feature Guide .

3.2.3.3

CELL_DCH (DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH) -> URA_PCH


When the UE uses the CE LL_DCH (DL HS -DS CH/ UL DCH) for service bearer, the
switching from CE LL_DCH (DL HS -DS CH/UL DCH) t o URA_P CH can be triggered by
the traffic measurement report (E vent 4B0) from the user plane or UE.
The E vent 4B0 is defined as that the value of traffic measurement value is 0. See
3.1.4.1Traffic Measurement for its detailed definition.
The switching from CE LL_DCH (DL HS-DS CH/ UL DCH) to URA_P CH is triggered in the
case of the following conditions:
The system switch PchSwch for URA _PCH switching is on.
The services are interactive or background services.
The system receives consecutive DToPchThd traffic measurement reports with
measurement value of 0 from the user plane and UE (Note: if the system receives a
report with measurement value of non -zero value when the receiving times are
smaller than the threshold, the corresponding counter is cleared)
If the concurrent services exist, it is required that all the services should meet the
condition for switching to URA_P CH.

CELL_DCH(DL HS-DSCH/UL DCH) -> IDLE


When the UE uses the CE LL_DCH (DL HS -DS CH/ UL DCH) for service bearer, the
switching from CELL_DCH (DL HS -DS CH/ UL DCH) to IDLE is triggered in the case of
the following conditions:
The services are interactive or background services.
The system receives consecutive DToIdleThd traffic measurement reports with
measurement value of 0 from the user plane and UE. (Note: If the system receives
the measurement reports with traffic measurement value of non -zero value when
the receiving times are smaller than the threshold, the corresponding cou nter is
cleared.)
If the concurrent services exist, it is required that all the services should meet the
condition for switching to IDLE.
When the channel is changed to IDLE, the occupied radio resources are released and
the UE returns to the standby status.

Traffic Measurement
The traffic volume measurement quantity on HS-DSCH is the average RLC buffer
payload, which is measured by the user plane.
For services bear on HS-DSCH, data is transmitted using AM RLC mode. The statistical
strategy for a specific BO of RB is: the AM RLC takes the RLC sent, to be sent currently,
retransmission data in the last 20 ms as the BO in the current 20 ms. The UE uses BO
sample values collected to trigger the event.

Configuration Principle of E-TTI


Configuration Principle of E-TTI:
1

When UE or any one cell of the active set only supports 10ms TTI, or the
Tti2msSuptInd of any one cell of the active set is off, then 10ms TTI is used.

Only when UE and all the cells of the active set support 2ms TTI, and the
Tti2msSuptInd of all the cells of the active set is on, then 2ms TTI can be allowed to

be used, the detail is in the following :


3

If EttiTraffVolSwch is on, and there is no CS traffic, and at least one traffic is


configured 2ms TTI, and if 10ms TTI can satisfy GBR require, 10ms TTI is used, and
the throughput measurement is switched on; Otherwise, if 10ms TTI cant satisfy
GBR require, 2ms TTI

is used, and the throughput meas urement isnt switched on.

For other scenes, if t here is no less than one traffic configured 2ms TTI, 2ms T TI is
used, otherwise, 10ms TTI is used, and t he throughput measurement isnt switched
on.

Channel Switching
During the session, the dynamic channel switching in the HSUPA system is to adjust the
service bandwidth and hand over channels in real time mainly according to the
measurements of traffic and channel quality. The figure below shows the channel
switching that the system currently supports according to HS UPA protocols.

When the UE is in the CE LL_DCH status, the switching from CELL_DCH (DL
HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH) to CE LL_FA CH can be triggered by the traffic measurement
report (E vent 4B ) by the user plane.
The switching CE LL_DCH (DL HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH) to CELL_FACH is triggered in
the case of the following conditions:

The system switch FachS wch for CE LL_FACH switching is open.

The services are interactive or background services.

The system receives consecutive ToFtimesThr traffic measurement reports


(E vent 4B) on the HS-DSCH from the user plane as well as consecutive

Switching from DL DCH/ UL DCH to DL HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH triggered by traffic

When the subscriber uses the DL DCH/ UL DCH channel, the switching from DL DCH/UL
DCH to DL HS-DS CH/ UL E-DCH can be triggered by the measurement report (E vent 4A)
from the user plane or UE to increase the system capacity.
The E vent 1F is defined as that the measurement value Ec/No is smaller than an
absolute threshold. See 3.2.4.1Pilot Channel Quality Measurement for the detailed
definition.
The switching from DL DCH/UL DCH to DL HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH is triggered in the case
of the following conditions:
The system receives consecutive DchE4aThd traffic measurement reports (E vent
4A) on the downlink DCH or uplink DCH independently from the user plane or UE.
(Not e: if the system receives a traffic measurement report (E vent 4B) on the
downlink DCH or uplink DCH independently from the user plane or UE when the
receiving times are smaller than the threshold, the corresponding counter is
cleared.)
The channel quality does not report 1F event.
Both the UE and system support HS -DS CH and E -DCH.
If HsupaCmAssoMode is configured as Serial, the compressed mode is not started; if
HsupaCmAssoMode is configured as Parallel , this requirement can be ignored.
(Not e: The parameter HsupaCmAssoMode indicates the HSUPA associate compressed
mode method, for more details see ZTE UMTS handover Control Feature Guide.)

Note: DL HS-DS CH/ UL E-DCH cannot switch to DL DCH/UL DCH based on traffic
volume measurement.
The concurrent services during channel s witching are processed by the follo wing
principl es:

If all the c oncurrent services are PS services and one service trigg ers the switching from
DL DCH/UL DCH to DL HS -DS CH/UL E -DCH, the DL DCH/UL DCH of all services

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

is switched to DL HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH.


If there is conversation service in the concurrent servic es and the UE is capable of
the DL DCH/ UL DCH and DL HS-DS CH/ UL E-DCH concurrency, the DL DCH/UL
DCH of only PS services is switched to DL HS-DS CH/ UL E-DCH; otherwise, the
switching is not implemented.
Note:
When the downlink DPCH and HS -PDS CH coexist, the maximum rat e on the DPCH is
reported by the UE. When the uplink DPCH and E-DPDCH coexist, the maximum rate on
the DPCH is 64 kbit/s.
If the service is on t he DL DCH/ UL DCH, the UE triggers event 4A and meets conditions
for DL DCH/ UL DCH -> DL HS -DS CH/ UL E-DCH switching, but the DL HS -DS CH or UL
E-DCH fails to admit or the DL HS-DS CH or UL E -DCH is not supported, select UL DCH
rate increase. In the cas e of UL DCH rate increase, the ot her conditions of R99 UL DCH
rate increase must be satisfied (see UL DCH -> UL DCH) rate inc reas e)).
If the service is on the DL DCH/ UL DCH, the user plane triggers downlink event 4A and
meets conditions for DL DCH -> DL HS-DSCH switching, but the DL HS-DS CH fails to
admit or the DL HS -DS CH is not supported, select DL DCH rate increase, and the uplink
is still on the DCH. In the case of DL DCH rate increase, the other conditions of DL DCH
rate increase must be satisfied. The way to determine the target rate for DL rate increase
is the same as that for R99 rate increase.
If the service is on the DL DCH/UL DCH, the UE triggers downlink event 4A and meets
conditions for DCH -> DL HS-DSCH switching, the DL HS-DSCH admits successfully, but
the UL E-DCH fails to admit or the E-DCH is not supported, the downlink will be switched
to the HS-DSCH and the uplink is still on the DCH.
2.

Switching from DL HS -DS CH/ UL E-DCH -> DL DCH/UL DCH triggered by channel
quality

When a subscriber is using the DL HS -DS CH/ UL E-DCH, the DL HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH
switching to DL DCH/ UL DCH can be triggered by channel quality measurement (E vent
1F triggered by pilot signal). This is because that the subscriber remaining on HS -DSCH
will worsen the QoS and lower the system capacity when the bit rate requirements of

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

67

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

streaming services carried on HS -DS CH are not satisfied and the channel quality
deteriorates.
The E vent 1F is defined as that the measurement value Ec/No is smaller than an
absolute threshold. See 3.2.4.1Pilot Channel Quality Measurement for the detailed
definition.
The switching from DL HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH to DL DCH/ UL DCH is triggered in the case
of the following conditions:
Channel quality measurement switches for the current PS service (IB ChQS wch,
SChQS wch) are open (Note: when PS S and I/B service are concurrent, if any of
IBChQS wc h and SChQS wch is open, these switches are considered open).
The channel quality triggers E vent 1F.
Handling principle of concurrent services in channel switching: switch all services on the
DL HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH to the DL DCH/ UL DCH.
During the DL HS-DSCH/UL E-DCH -> DL DCH/UL DCH switching, the rate is the DCH

Dual-Carrier related Dynamic Channel Adjustment

3.4.1

Initial Service Channel Allocation


The initial service channel allocation for dual- carrier is in the following:
When the downlink channel allocation result is HS-DS CH,

and bot h the UE and

the cell support dual -carrier, then the dual -carrier should be allocated to the UE.
Dual-carrier capability of the neighbouring cell from DRNC and its secondary carrier
information can be obtained from the parameters IurDcHsdsSuptInd and SndSvrCelI D
in the adjacent cell list in SRNC; Dual-carrier capability of adjacent cell and
secondary carrier information over Iur interface can also be acquired from the
related IE on Iur interface.

3.4.2

Concurrent Service Channel Allocation


The concurrent service channel allocation for dual- carrier is similar to the initial service
channel allocation in 3.4. 1.1, that is, as long as the downlink channel allocation res ult is
HS-DSCH, and both the UE and the cell support dual-carrier, then the dual-c arrier should
be allocat ed to the UE.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

74

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

For CS+PS, if CS service is established on DCH, and PS servic e is established on


dual-carrier, then CS service us es the primary carrier as bearer.

3.4.3

Channel Switching
If it is from other channel switching to HS-DS CH, and if both the UE and the cell support
dual-carrier, then the dual -carrier should be allocated to the UE.
And the HS-DSCH serving cell change may also trigger the channel switching bet ween
dual-carrier HS-DSCH and single-carrier HS-DS CH:
If t he HS-DSCH target cell supports dual-carrier, and it also satisfies the condition
for using the dual -carrier,then the dual-carrier will be allocated.
If t he HS-DS CH target cell does not support dual-carrier, then the single-c arrier will

Fast Dormancy

3.6.1

R8 Fast Dormancy
3GPP Release 8 introduces a simple UE signaling to indicate the state of UE for the
network. A new UE "Signaling Connection Release Indication Cause" indicat es that the
UE has decided to stop an activated PS data transmission. On receiving the IE, UTRA N
can decide to trigger an RRC state handover to URA_P CH or IDLE to save battery
consumption. The net work can control the using of this function by configuring and
sending a timer in SIB1 which regulates that this function is forbidden within a period of
T323.There is a paramet er T323S wch to control whether configure T323 in S IB1.
Without receive T323, UE would not sending SCRI with cause UE requested PS data
session end.
Note:
1.

The UE shall be inhibited from sending t he SCRI message with t he IE "Signalling


Connection Release Indication Cause" set to "UE Requested PS Data session end"
whilst timer T323 is running.

2.

According to 3GPP 25.331, when timer T323 expires, if it still meets the condition for
reporting SCRI message, the UE will trigger the transmission of a S CRI message
again. But some tests confirm that some UEs will not report SCRI message again
when timer T323 expires.

3.6.2

Pre-R7 Fast Dormancy Suppressing


In order to save the battery consumption, for some smart phones whos e versions are
3GPP Releas e 7 or before Release 7, once the data transmission is end, they will send
the message Signalling Connection Release Indication (S CRI ), and make the RA N
release the Iu signaling and RB connection. This process is called Pre -R7 Fast
Dormancy. When there are data packages need to be transmitted again, it will
re-establish the RRC connection, and re-establish RB/RAB. This frequent data
transmission will cause frequent net work connection and release, and produce many
signaling messages, and so its

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

easy to cause signaling storm phenomenon.

82

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

To solve the problem, this function based on the heart beat strategy of the user plane,
can avoid UE sending the message SCRI, and avoid the frequent signaling connection
and release.

3.6.2.1

Heart Beat Strategy of the User Plane


In order to avoid the UE whos e version is 3GPP Release 7 or before Release 7 sending
the message Signalling Connection Release Indication , and avoid the frequent
signaling connection and release., the heart beat strategy is performed for the UE that
can meet the following conditions:
1.

The bit value of the parameter HeartBeat UeVer that the UEs version is
corresponding to is 1;

2.

PS service is present, and no CS service.

3.

RLC is acknowledged mode.

4.

If parameter GResPara8 is1: true, the conditionThe IE RRC Connection Set up


Complete. UE radio access capability .Device type is not present or its value is not
doesNotBenefitFromBattery ConsumptionOptimisatio n should be also satisfied; If
GResPara8 is0: false, then its no need to judge the reportedDevice type
condition.

When the conditions above are satisfied, and there is no data interaction between CN
and RNC for the UE, the RNC user plane will do heart beat detection to t he UE with t he
period HeartBeatFreq, and during the heart beat detection time, the heart beat data is not
included in the traffic volume measurement result of the user plane. When there are data
package int eractions between CN and RNC for the UE again, the heart beat detection is
stopped. So, based on the heart beat detection, it can avoid UE sending the message
SCRI, and avoid the frequent signaling connection and release.

3.6.2.2

Channel Switching Strategy of the Control Plane


Because of the heart beat detection to UE, UE will send acknowledge data packages
after it receives the heart beat data, this may cause that RNC cant make correctly
judgment of the event 4B0 for uplink traffic volume measurement, and it will cause that

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

83

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

the channel switching to PCH or Idle state based on the traffic volume measurement
cant be performed. In order to solve the problem, add a new parameter OnlyDnOnHB, to
control whether the channel switching to PCH or Idle state only bases on the downlink
traffic volume measurement report for the UE that is performed heart beat detection.
For the UE that is performed heart beat detection, if the parameter OnlyDnOnHB is 1,
the channel switching to PCH or Idle state only needs to base on the downlink traffic
volume measurement report; Otherwise, if the parameter OnlyDnOnHB is 0,the channel
switching to PCH or Idle state needs to base on both the downlink and uplink traffic
volume measurement report.
Note: Tests confirm that UE doesnt send uplink data packages after it rec eives the heart
beat data, and the channel switching to P CH or Idle state based on the downlink and
uplink traffic volume measurement can be normally performed, so the paramet er
OnlyDnOnHB can be set to 0:Off.

Traffic Sub-class rate matching


CN send necessary Qos information to RNC by RAB assignment message. In Qos
information, it defines the related traffic information, for example the maximal bit rate. For
the user rat e control of RNC, besides the rate demand of CN, it is also controll ed by UE
capability limitation and real traffic situation. The whole process is rate matching.
Rate matching includes the following procedures:
1.

Iu assignment rate matching according to UE capability:

For HSPA: MaxBR1= min(max rate of Iu int erface (If there is MBR negotiation, it is the
max rate after negotiation), max rate according to UE capability);
For DCH: MaxBR1= max {max rate of Iu interface (If there is MBR negotiation, it is the
max rate after negotiation), 384kbps}
2.

Fuzzy match from MaxBR1 t o the nearest sub-service in sub- service list (Match to

the sub- service whose rate is nearest and not smaller than MaxBR1),and then
according to the matched s ub-s ervice number, it can get the paramet er
configuration for this traffic. Among them, the parameter MaxBitRate is MaxBR2.
3.

RNC controlled the max bit rate of this traffic is min(MaxB R2, max rate of Iu

IUB transmission bandwidth limitation strategy


When constructing a net work, there may be lack of Iub transmission resource. An access
of a high-rate UE may lead to numbers of other users inaccessibility to the network. In
order to avoid the case that some individual high -rate UE affect the communication
quality in large scale, it is necessary to limit the maximum rate of these UE in the cell.
For signaling: CResPara4 is used to limit the maximum bit rate for signaling in cell. When there
is lack of Iub transmission resource, i t can improve the successful ratio of RRC connection.
For service:

In

parameters

RtMaxUlRateDch

RtMaxDlRateDch (for RT service) and Nrt MaxUlRateDch / Nrt MaxDlRateDch (for NRT
service) are used to limited the DCH maximum rat e of uplink and downlink respectively.
For E DCH users, the E -DCH users maximum rates are limited by the parameters
RtMaxrat eEdch (for RT service) and Nrt MaxRateEdch (for NRT service).
In the case of inter-RNC,

for DCH users,

paramet ers

Rt MaxUlRateDchD /

RtMaxDlRateDchD (for RT service) and NrtMaxUlRateDchD / NrtMaxDlRateDchD (for

respectively. For E DCH users, the E-DCH users maximum rat es are limit ed by
parameters RtMaxRat eEdchD (for RT service) and Nrt MaxRateEdchD (for NRT service).
If the related parameters are not configured in the neighboring cells, the restriction
decision does not effect.
In the case of macro diversity, the limited rat e is set to the minimum limited rate value of
all the cells in the active set.

suffer bubble noise caused by losing alignment of CFN. In order to be compatible with
this kind of IP HONE, ZTE set a switch Cs RrcOnFachS wc h to control RRC not to be
established on CELL_FA CH to guarantee UE not attempt to access CELL_FA CH aft er
the admission decision for RRC on CELL_DCH failed.
After the admission decision for RRC on CELL_DCH failed,if it is CS service,whether
access to FACH/RA CH is decided by Cs RrcOnFachS wc h.(CS service is defined by
Establish cause, which is Originating Convers ational Call or Terminating Conversational

Before the CS releasing, the PS will not be re-configured to HS-DSCH based on


traffic volume measurement. After the CS released, the PS can be re-configured
to HS-DSCH based on traffic volume measurement.

(2) If CsPlusPsSwch is set to0:off, this feature is not active. The formal DRBC
strategy is performed.
Notes:

If CsPlusPsSwch is set to1:on, PS is setup on DCH or downgrade to DCH, PS


data rate can be adjusted based on traffic volume measurement with the
condition that the total PS data rate is lower than or equal to DlPsRateLmtLowC,
UlPsRateLmtLowC, DlPsRateLmtHighC and UlPsRateLmtHighC. Thats, If
CsPlusPsSwch is set to1:on, PS is setup on DCH or downgrade to DCH, all
the strategy keeps the same except that the PS cannot be re-configured to
HS-DSCH based on traffic volume measurement..

For PS downgrade triggered by new service RB setup:

For UE with R6 or later release, if R6MulRabRcfgMeth is set to 0:RB Setup


Method, the new service RB setup and PS reconfiguration from HS to DCH
will be performed simultaneously. If R6MulRabRcfgMeth is set to 1:RB
Reconfiguration Method, the PS reconfiguration from HS to DCH will be
performed before the new service RB setup.

For UE with release before R6, the PS reconfiguration from HS to DCH will
be performed before the new service RB setup always

The PS downgrade to DCH triggered by CS setup before PS, only the scene of CS
setup, RAB modify and CS hard handover is taken into account (CS over HSPA is

taken into account also)

UE PCH Compatibility Strategy


For some UE with release of R99 and R4, PCH compatibility is not well. So for the UE
with release of R99 and R4, the state transfer to PCH is controlled by the switch
GResPara13.
If GResPara13 is set to 0, the state transfer to PCH (URA_PCH or CELL_PCH) will not
performed for UE with release of R99 and R4, which will transfer to idle directly(the same
as PchSwch set to 0:off). If GResPara13 is set to 0, the state transfer to PCH
(URA_PCH or CELL_PCH) can be performed.

3.7.9

DRBC F/P->D Performance Optimization


To solve CPU overload, procedure optimization is done from PCH or FACH to
CELL_DCH state (in which case, the channel re-selection will not done wholly). The
strategy is following:
For UE in URA_PCH/CELL_PCH state, when cell update triggered by Uplink data
transmitting, or downlink data transmitted, or new service setup, URA_PCH/CELL_PCH
state to CELL_DCH state will be triggered. For UE in CELL_FACH state, CELL_FACH
state to CELL_DCH state will be triggered by traffic volume measurement (Event 4A).
During which, the last CELL_DCH channel will be tried firstly in which cell capability and
traffic type mapping will be taken into account; if ok, the last CELL_DCH channel will be
used; else, the channel type selection will be done. (Notes: if the cell back to CELL_DCH
state is the same as the cell before leaving the CELL_DCH state, the last CELL_DCH
channel will be tried directly. no cell capability and traffic type mapping will be done.)
Notes:
1

The aim of this strategy is to reduce the DRBC channel allocation and cell
selection procedure. But the last channel setting needs to be kept when leaving
CELL_DCH state.

Traffic type preference PrefTrafType matching: if the Traffic type

is included in

the value of PrefTrafType, the Traffic type preference will be satisfied in this cell.

ZTE Confidential Proprietary

DRBC Algorithm Feature Guide

Cell capability matching:

If the last channel setting is HS/E, the cell should be with the HS/E
capability(HspaSptMeth is R6+R5 or R6+R5+R99, the capability in Audit
Response is supported, and hsdStat/hseStat is active) and the cell capability(E-TTI,
SF of E-DCH, HARQ of E-DCH) is larger than or equal to the last channel setting
requirement.
If the last channel setting is HS/D, the cell should be with the HS/D capability
(HspaSptMeth is

R5/R5+R99/R6+R5/R6+R5+R99, the

capability

in

Audit

Response is supported, and hsdStat is active).


If the last channel setting is D/D, the cell should be with the D/D capability
(HspaSptMeth is R99/R5+R99 /R6+R5+R99).
For HS/E and HS/D: if singling RB is setup on HS-DSCH, the cell should support
F-DPCH or E-FDPCH.
For CELL_FACH state, the last channel setting should be deleted when receiving
RAB setup, RAB Modify, or RAB Release.

3.7.10

CELL_PCH Supporting
One of CELL_PCH or URA_PCH feature can be selected by switch PchSwch
(GResPara49 is used in UR11.10 Release temporarily, PchSwch is used in
UR11.20Release normally).
With CELL_PCH supporting, the state transfer to PCH is the same as URA_PCH
supporting, the difference only is: when decision to transfer state to PCH,
CELL_PCH or URA_PCH need to be selected based on the parameter
PchSwch(GResPara49): If PchSwch GResPara49 is set to 1:Only Support
URA_PCH: then transfer to URA_PCH; If PchSwchGResPara49is set to 2:Only
Support CELL_PCH, then transfer to CELL_PCH.
Notes:
(1) The state transfer from CELL_PCH to other state is the same as the state
transfer from URA_PCH to other state.
(2) The state transfer between CELL_PCH and URA_PCH is not supported.

For the UE which is using DELL_DCH, if the measurement of t he occupied of the uplink
and downlink sending buffers. This parameter indicates the event 4B counter threshold
for CELL_DCH to CELL_FACH. For the UE using CELL_DCH, if the tim es of the
measured RLC buffer payload of the downlink being smaller than the event 4Bs
threshold on uplink and the downlink exceed the threshold indicated by this paramet er,
the UE will be trans ferred from CELL_DCH to CELL_FA CH. For I/B traffic class, att empt
accessing CELL_DCH after failure of accessing CELL_FA CH ,For S traffic class, attempt
accessing CELL_DCH directly.
The larger this parameter is, the harder the UE will be transferred from CELL_DCH to
CELL_FA CH. Vice versa.
