Introduction to BSS Radio


Parameters
900/1800 MHz TDMA digital celluar mobile communication system
(GSM) is an integrated system covering fields of network tech-
nology, digital stored program control technology, all transmission
technologies and radio technologies.
GSM consists of Network Sub System (NSS), Base Station Sub-
system (BSS) and Mobile Station (MS).
GSM system signaling structure covers MAP interface, A-interface
(between MSC and BSC), Abis interface (between BSC and BTS),
Ater interface (between BSC and external TC) and Um interface
(between BTS and MS, also called air interface).
All these objects and interfaces contain large quantity of configura-
tion parameters and performance parameters, some of which are
determined during the development and production of the equip-
ment, and most of which depend on actual need and operation by
network providers. Settings and adjustment of latter parameters
have a great impact on the operation of entire GSM network.
Radio parameters in GSM network refer to parameters related to
radio devices and radio resources. These parameters have an im-
portant impact on coverage of cells, distribution of signaling flow
and service property of network, etc. Therefore, adjusting radio
parameters reasonably plays a very important part in GSM net-
work optimization.
GSM radio parameters are classified into project parameters and
resource (cell) parameters.

ZXG10 iBSC Radio Parameter Reference

1. Project parameters
Project parameters refer to parameters related to design,
installation, and commissioning of the project, like antenna
height, antenna direction, antenna gain, antenna download
obliquity and cable loss, etc. These parameters must be
determined during network design and are seldom changed
during the operation of the network.
2. Resource (cell) parameters
Resource (cell) parameters refer to parameters related to
configuration and utilization of radio resources, which usually
transmit on radio interface (Um) to keep the base station
and mobile station consistent. Radio parameters covered in
this manual are mainly resource parameters. Radio resource
parameters in BSS contain:
GERAN subnetwork parameters, BSC management NE pa-
rameters, configuration set parameters;
Global resource parameters for BSC, site parameters,
GERAN external cell parameters, UTRAN external cell
parameters;
Cell Parameters;
TRX parameters, power control parameters, handover con-
trol parameters, UTRAN handover control parameters, ad-
jacent interference cell parameters, adjacent handover cell
parameters, adjacent reselection cell parameters, adjacent
handover and reselection cell parameters, UTRAN adjacent
cell handover and reselection parameters, UTRAN adjacent
handover cell parameters, UTRAN adjacent reselection cell
parameters, frequency hopping system parameters.

7. Modify the data file according to actual requirement, and save


it.
The operation indications are described as follows.
i. D indicates deleting the MO. A indicates adding the MO. M
indicates modifying the MO (this command is issued only
when the parameter value is changed). Any value beyond
D, A and M (including the lower case form) will be ignored
by the system, and the corresponding data in that row will
not be processed.
ii. For the same management object MO (such as cell, cell
power control and cell handover control), if the operation
type (D, A or M) appears in multiple exported tables, then
the operation types of all columns must be the same; oth-
erwise, the system will give error prompt.
iii. No matter how many records in the Excel table should be
deleted, created or modified, the system performs deletion
first, then performs creation, and finally performs modifi-
cation.

Note:
The order of operations has nothing to do with the order of
records being displayed in the Excel file.

iv. If multiple objects among which reference relationship ex-


ists should be deleted, the system first deletes the active
reference object (such as sub-object), and then deletes
the passive reference object (such as parent-object). If
multiple objects among which reference relationship exists
should be created, the system first creates the passive ref-
erence object (such as parent-object), and then creates the
active reference object (such as sub-object). If multiple ob-
jects among which reference relationship exists should be
modified, the system first modifies the passive reference
object (such as parent-object), and then modifies the ac-
tive reference object (such as sub-object).
The following lists the restriction conditions.
i. The exported Excel file is the import template.
ii. In the Excel template, the work sheet name cannot be mod-
ified.
iii. In the Excel template, the title row in the work sheet cannot
be modified, the frozen column cannot be modified, and
the cell type cannot be modified. However, common data
columns and data rows can be deleted.
iv. The parameter that cannot be modified on the interface
cannot be modified in the batch modification.
v. In the Excel template, the attributes USERLABEL, MCC,
MNC, LAC and CI appear in multiple work sheets, but only
the modification in the network parameter list is valid.
vi. The parameter MAIO of channels supporting baseband fre-
quency hopping cannot be modified.

2. Some parameter values in the interface are not fully same as
those in database, with certain corresponding relationship be-
tween them. For specific corresponding relationship see ap-
pendix.

Precautions on Parameter
Adjustment
Radio parameters adjustment, according to the type of the prob-
lem to be solved, falls into two kinds.
First is to solve static problem, that is, to correct traffic model
in system design by measuring actual average traffic and sig-

naling flow in every district and to solve common problems


existing for long.
Second is to solve problems at a particular time like traffic over-
load in some district, channel congestion due to sudden events
or random events.
For the first type, service providers must perform measurement
and summarization on actual operation regularly, and then per-
form appropriate adjustment on global or partial parameters and
configurations. For the second type, network operators adjust
some radio parameters at real time according to instant data from
measurement results.
Most radio parameters in GSM system are based on one cell or
one location area. It is necessary to consider whether parameter
adjustment in this cell will influence other cells, especially the ad-
jacent one, for parameters between cells are related to each other
greatly. Otherwise, it may cause negative influence. Determine
whether the problem results from equipment fault (including con-
nections) first when it occurs in some part of the network. Adjust
radio parameters only when determined that the problem does re-
sult from service.

This parameter defines that BSC automatically


indicates to MSC about the ratio of presently available
channels to the total channels. When available cell
resource is lower than this parameter, resource
indication shall be sent to MSC about this cell
condition, which shall be configured by O&M.
The four modes of resource indication from
BSC are as follows:
Automatic Mode: BSC instantly returns the
BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION message as an
acknowledgment without any resource information
after receiving the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST
message. BSC automatically sends BSSAP
RESOURCE INDICATION message to MSC. BSC
uses the periodicity IE in BSSAP RESOURCE
REQUEST to determine the indication messages
interval (unless the Periodicity IE is 0 and
BSC ignores 0) once O&M of BSC satisfies
the Auto condition (service threshold or the
interval between any two messages).
One time mode: BSC instantly returns a BSSAP
RESOURCE INDICATION message with resource
information after receiving BSSAP RESOURCE
REQUEST message. BSC stops sending and
waits for next BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST if
the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST message does
not contain Extended Resource Indication IE. If
there is Extended Resource Indication IE, BSC
shall follow the regulations of Subsequent Mode
element in the message, same as mode 4. If the
previous one is mode 1 or 3, then you can use
mode 1 or 3, otherwise you can use mode 4.
Period mode: After BSC receives the BSSAP
RESOURCE REQUEST message, it will immediately
return a BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION
message that contains the resource information.
After that, BSC periodically sends the BSSAP
RESOURCE INDICATION message. If Periodicity
IE in the BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST message
is not 0, then the period to send the message is
the value of Periodicity IE multiplied by 100 ms.
If Periodicity IE is 0, then the message is wrong
and the whole BSSAP RESOURCE REQUEST
message is considered as incorrect.
Stop mode: After the BSSAP RESOURCE
REQUEST message is received, BSC immediately
returns a BSSAP RESOURCE INDICATION
message without any resource information as an
acknowledgement. And then, it will no longer
Description send the cell resource information to MSC.

Overload contains overloads of CPU, MSC signaling

In cell overload conditions, BSC adopts a timer
mT12 for traffic flow control. The mT12 timer in
combination with mT11 timer modifies ACCESS
CONTROL parameter in the cell. BSC notifies the MS
to achieve flow control through system information.
The value of timer must be more than that of mT11
timer. The two clocks control the cell flow as follows:
Description When the network receives the overload message for
the first time, the system decreases the flow by one
level, and starts mT11 and mT12. The OVERLOAD
message during mT11 period will be ignored. If the
OVERLOAD message is received between mT11 and
mT12, the flow will be decreased by another level and
both mT11 and mT12 will be restarted. If BSC does
not receive OVERLOAD message after mT12 timer
stops, the flow increases to one more level, and the
mT12 timer restarts. Lower grade and higher grade
represent different proportion to reject service.

This parameter is timer T3191. During the packet


downlink transmission, if the BSN of the RLC data
block to be transmitted is the maximum (that is,
the final downlink data block), the network will
send a RLC data block whose Final Block Identifier
(FBI) domain is 1 and which includes effective
RRBP domain to initialize release of the downlink
TBF. Then the network starts T3191. For each
RLC data block that receives FBI with value 1
and contains effective RRBP domain:
In acknowledged mode, the MS sends PACKET
DOWNLINK ACK/NACK message whose FBI
domain is 1 on the uplink block specified by
the RRBP domain. If the network receives the
PACKET DOWNLINK ACK/NACK message before
T3191 expires and has to re-transmit it, T3191
is stopped and the required RLC data block is
re-transmitted. If re-transmission is not required,
T3191 is stopped and T3193 is started. When
T3193 expires, the network releases TBF. The
network also releases TBF when T3191 stops.
In unacknowledged mode, MS sends the PACKET
CONTROL ACKNOWLEDGE message in the
uplink block specified as per RRBP field. T3191
terminates to enable only when the network
receives the PACKET CONTROL ACKNOWLEDGE
message before T3191 stops. When T3193
expires, the network releases TBF. The network

9.05 kbps, 13.4 kbps, 15.6 kbps, and 21.4 kbps,
respectively. The low level coding mode has
higher error correction capability and lower data
throughput. User can choose different coding
modes for each timeslot or even each TBF.
During data transmission of GRPR, to reach the
maximum radio throughput, the network shall
select the coding mode dynamically according to
the data rate requirement and radio transmission
quality. Good radio transmission quality means
that the probability of the retransmission of the
error radio blocks is small. In this time the coding
mode that carries large data volume (that is,
high level coding mode) can be used.
For TBF (uplink and downlink) in the channel
coding mode CSn (1n3), if the number of data
blocks transmitted consecutively and correctly
exceeds the predefined parameter Cn[n-1], the
coding mode will be increased by one level.
Subscript 1, 2, and 3 in the interface are

on the same channel of GPRS paging channel
(packet or CCCH paging channel), or on the
GPRS traffic channel (when it is assigned with
a packet data channel). Mode 1 indicates that

Network operation mode 1 is required while
configuring PBCCH; Gs interfce is required
while configuring network operation mode 1.
Mode 2: The network sends to the
GPRS-attached MS the CS paging message
on the CCCH paging channel, which is also

the CCCH paging channel.
Mode 3: The network sends to the
"GPRS-attached" MS the CS paging message on
the CCCH paging channel, and sends the GPRS
paging message either on the packet paging
channel (if any in the cell) or on the CCCH
paging channel. Mode 3 indicates that the MS

3GPP reference Section 44.060 12.24, 23.060, 48.018

This parameter is broadcasted through SI13,


PSI1, and PSI13 messages.
In EGPRS system with broadband features,
the QoS concept of UMTS has been imported,
which enables transferring the negotiable QoS
configuration to BSS through Gb interface.
BSS can maintain QoS subscribing information
through function PFC (packet flow context) flow,
which include acquiring QoS, modifying QoS,
and deleting QoS signaling flow.
Network notifies MS if the network supports PFC
flow through the system message parameter
PFC_FEATURE_MODE. If yes, the MS will add
PFI when establishing uplink TBF (PACKET
RESOURCE REQUEST). BSS can decide QoS
Description as MS requires according to PFI.

Enhanced radio status procedures


support (EnRadioStu)

Full name Enhanced radio status procedures support

Abbreviation EnRadioStu

3GPP Name None

3GPP
reference None

On the basis of Radio Status, enhanced Radio Status


reports three more cause values:
x02: Indicates the enhanced Radio Status process
is used when the cell reselection occurs. Usually,
it helps satisfy the service requirement to the
maximum extent.
x03: Indicates the enhanced Radio Status process
is used when the MS is required to perform cell
reselection and LLC frame transferring is not
supported.
x04: Indicates that SGSN is notified when BSC
detects cell reselection failure.
SGSN has the following responses:
Description When Radio Status with the cause value x02
is received, the downlink LLC frame sending is
resumed after cell reselection is completed.
When Radio Status with the cause value x03
is received, either the downlink data sending is
resumed after cell reselection is completed, or
Radio Status with other cause values are received.
When Radio Status with the cause value x04 is
received, if there are data to be sent to MS, then
the downlink LLC frame sending is resumed.
With Radio Status that supports multiple cause values,
SGSN can better understand the status of MS, which
avoids sending data to the old cell blindly.
This parameter is supported from version 6.20.21.

Full name GPRS MAX initial access signal level

Abbreviation MsTxMaxCCH_0

3GPP Name GPRS_MS_TXPWR_MAX_CCH

3GPP reference 3GPP TS 45.008 V5.22.0

This parameter is used at MS side. It is broadcasted


to MS via system message by BTS. Network controls
the MS transmit power during communication
with BTS. The network controls MS power using
power command. MS outputs transmit power
closest to the specified power value if unavailable.
The power before MS receives the network
power control information (the power used in
random access), depends on this parameter
when MS is receiving PBCCH.
This parameter is also a parameter for cell
selection and reselection by MS, involved in
calculation of C1 and C2 values.
Refer to Appendix C, for the maximum power before
MS receives the power control information.
The principle of setting this parameter is as
follows: Under the precondition that the MS at
the cell boundary is guaranteed with a certain
access success rate, the MS access level should
be reduced as much as possible. Generally, it
is recommended to set this parameter as 5 (for
GSM900MS) and 2 (for GSM1800MS).
In actual application, after the parameter is set,
make a dial test at the cell boundary, and test MS
access success rate and access time with different
parameter settings to determine whether to increase
or decrease the value of the parameter.
This parameter indicates the parameters used
during reselection on idle status, which only

MS in single-frequency GSM system needs


only to report contents of six adjacent cells
with the strongest signals in a frequency
band, when reporting the survey result of
adjacent cells to the network.
In multi-band networking, MS can enter with priority
into a specific frequency band during handover.
The MS reports the survey result according to the
signal intensity and the frequency band of the
signals, according to the actual situation.
Multiband report indication is used to notify
MS to report contents of adjacent cells in
multiple frequency bands. It is one of the
system control parameters.
The setting of this parameter is subject to traffic
in each frequency band. General principles to set
the parameters are as follows: 0: If the traffic of
each frequency band is almost equivalent, and the
operator has no choice over the frequency band.
3: If the traffic of each frequency band is quite
different, and the operator hopes that MS enters
a specific frequency band with priority.
The values are as follows:
0: According to adjacent cell's signal strength,
MS reports the measurement result of six
adjacent cells with the strongest known and
permitted NCC. This report is applicable for
adjacent cells of all frequency bands.
1: MS reports the measurement result of
an adjacent cell with the strongest signal
at frequency bands in the adjacent cell list
(excluding frequency band of the local cell).
In the remaining space, MS reports adjacent
cells which are at the local cell's frequency
band. If there is still remaining space, MS
reports the remaining adjacent cells, no matter
what frequency bands they are at.
2: MS reports the measurement result of
two adjacent cells with the strongest signal
at frequency bands in the adjacent cell list
(excluding frequency band of the local cell).
In the remaining space, MS reports adjacent
cells which are at the local cell's frequency
band. If there is still remaining space, MS
reports the remaining adjacent cells, no matter
what frequency bands they are at.
3: MS reports the measurement result of
three adjacent cells with the strongest signal
at frequency bands in the adjacent cell
list (excluding frequency band of the local
cell). In the remaining space, MS reports
adjacent cell in local cell frequency band. If
still more space is available, MS reports the
remaining adjacent cells, no matter what
Description frequency bands they are at.
