GCELLBASICPARA)
Function
Use this command to modify the basic Parameters of the GSM internal cell.
Note
1. The cell can support GPRS only when it is configured with the PCU.
2. If the cell supports the adjacent cell of EDGE, NC2, NACC, PACKET SI or PCU64, it must
support GPRS.
3. If the cell is modified to not support GPRS, it will not support EDGE, NC2, NACC, PACKET

GMSKDELAY

Diversity
Transmitter
GMSK Delay

Meaning: Delay of transmit diversity when


GMSK is used. Generally, the parameter is
applicable to general fading environments.
In this case, the transmit diversity can
obtain the gain of 3 dB to 5 dB. The fading
degrees, however, vary with environments.
For a fixed delay, different UEs may obtain
different gains. In addition, a fixed delay
may have negative impacts on some codes
of the EDGE service. Therefore, the delay
of transmit diversity must be configurable
and can be set for GMSK and 8PSK
respectively.

8PSK Delay

Meaning: Delay of transmit diversity when


8PSK is used. Generally, the parameter is
applicable to general fading environments.
The transmit diversity can generally bring a
gain of 3 dB to 5 dB. The fading conditions
vary with the MS location; therefore, MSs
in a fixed time delay obtain different gains.
In addition, the EDGE service coding may
be adversely affected. Therefore, the time
delay of transmit diversity must be
configurable and can be separately set for
GMSK and 8PSK. Only the doubletransceiver BTSs and the distributed BTSs
can be configured with this parameter. For
the BTSs of other types, this parameter is
set to an invalid value 255.

this parameter is set to YES, the TCHs on
the non-BCCH TRX are preferentially
assigned. In this way, the largest possible
number of idle TCHs is reserved on the
BCCH TRX, and thus the BCCH TRX
enters the ICB mode.

Meaning: Delay of transmit diversity when


16QAM is used. Generally, the parameter is
applicable to general fading environments.
The transmit diversity can generally bring a
gain of 3 dB to 5 dB. The fading conditions
vary with the MS location; therefore, MSs
in a fixed time delay obtain different gains.
In addition, the EDGE service coding may
be adversely affected. To avoid the

Parameter Description

preceding cases, the delay of transmit


diversity must be configurable and can be
set for GMSK and 16QAM respectively.
Only the double-transceiver BTSs and the

this parameter is set to an invalid value 255.

The transmit diversity can generally bring a
gain of 3 dB to 5 dB. The fading conditions
vary with the MS location; therefore, MSs
in a fixed time delay obtain different gains.
In addition, the EDGE service coding may
be adversely affected. To avoid the
preceding cases, the delay of transmit
diversity must be configurable and can be
set for GMSK and 32QAM respectively.
