LTE Flexible Bandwidth Feature Parameter Description 2 Overview

2 Overview

2.1 Background
In GL refarming scenarios, some, or even all, of the GSM spectrum resources are reallocated
to LTE networks. During the refarming, the GSM networks release spectrum resources in
units of 200 kHz (equal to one GSM carrier). As a result, the released resources may not be
equal to standard LTE bandwidths (1.4 MHz, 3 MHz, 5 MHz, 10 MHz, 15 MHz, or 20 MHz).
The LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature allows operators to deploy LTE networks with Huawei
eNodeBs using non-standard bandwidths.

2.2 Introduction
This feature punctures available RBs in LTE cells using the standard bandwidth, enabling the
cells to work properly on non-standard bandwidths.
This feature enables 10 MHz, 15 MHz, and 20 MHz standard bandwidths to be compressed to
75% of their original sizes. However, it is recommended that the bandwidth compression ratio
be set to 80%. That is, the LTE flexible bandwidths supported by eNodeBs are 8 MHz to 9.9
MHz, 12 MHz to 14.9 MHz, and 16 MHz to 19.9 MHz. If a ratio of lower than 80% is
required, contact Huawei engineers.

2.3 Benefits
The LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature increases spectral efficiency, raises peak rate of users,
and improves user experience.
For the peak rate in scenarios where the bandwidth is compressed from 10 MHz to 8 MHz:
Uplink: 50% gain compared to 5 MHz and 25% loss compared to 10 MHz
Downlink: 50% gain compared to 5 MHz and 25% loss compared to 10 MHz

LTE Flexible Bandwidth Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

3 Technical Description

3.1 Introduction
The LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature compresses bandwidth by reducing effective bandwidth
and limits performance loss caused by RB puncturing through effective management of
physical channel resources. Uplink anti-interference technologies are used to decrease the
uplink interference from GSM frequencies. For details, see Figure 3-5.

3.1.1 Principles
The LTE_FB_CFG_SWITCH option of the CellLteFlexBw.LteFlexBwSwitch parameter is
used to activate or deactivate the LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature for an eNodeB.
The ranges of available uplink and downlink RBs are specified by the following four
parameters:
l CellLteFlexBw.DlCustStartPrbIndex
l CellLteFlexBw.DlCustEndPrbIndex
l CellLteFlexBw.UlCustStartPrbIndex
l CellLteFlexBw.UlCustEndPrbIndex.
For example, in an uplink scenario where GSM interfering frequencies are at the edges of an
LTE standard bandwidth and there are two RBs between the LTE spectrum and the nearest
GSM frequencies, if the value of the CellLteFlexBw.UlCustStartPrbIndex parameter is
smaller than that of the CellLteFlexBw.UlCustEndPrbIndex parameter, the actual bandwidth
of the cell equals (CellLteFlexBw.UlCustEndPrbIndex -
CellLteFlexBw.UlCustStartPrbIndex + 5) x 0.18 MHz. For details, see Figure 3-1.

3.2 Physical Channel Resource Management


With LTE flexible bandwidth, eNodeBs adjust related resource management algorithms for
physical channels to reduce performance loss caused by RB puncturing. This adjustment
prevents the resources from being allocated to punctured RBs.

3.2.1 PCFICH and PHICH Resource Allocation


The positions of resource elements (REs) occupied by a PCFICH depend on the physical cell
identifier (PCI), which is specified by the Cell.PhyCellId parameter. The LTE Flexible
Bandwidth feature imposes certain constraints on PCI assignment to ensure that a PCFICH
occupies the REs that are not located in punctured RBs. If the PCI set is too small, assign a
resource element group (REG) from the PCFICH to the punctured RBs to increase the
transmit power and ensure that UEs can parse the PCFICH correctly.

The arrangement of the REs on the PHICH depends on the PCI and the Ng parameter. The
LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature imposes constraints on PCI assignment and the Ng parameter
value to ensure that a PHICH uses REs that are not located in punctured RBs, and that UEs
can parse the PHICH correctly.

The selected PCI must meet certain constraints related to the PCFICH and the PHICH.

For details about the constraint relationship between the PCI and the PCFICH, see section
6.7.4 "Mapping to resource elements" in 3GPP TS 36.211 V9.1.0.

eRAN
LTE Flexible Bandwidth Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

For details about the constraint relationship between the PCI and the PHICH, see section 6.9.3
"Mapping to resource elements" in 3GPP TS 36.211 V9.1.0.
For details about the Ng parameter, see section 6.9 "Physical hybrid ARQ indicator channel"
in 3GPP TS 36.211 V9.1.0.

NOTE

A proper PCI helps reduce the impacts of GSM interference on the PCFICH or the PHICH. PCI
planning of GSM frequencies on the U-Net can be used to select the PCI.

3.2.2 PDCCH Resource Allocation and Power Control


With LTE flexible bandwidth, the PDCCHs used by some UEs may be mapped to punctured
RBs, resulting in a deterioration of PDCCH demodulation performance. The following
methods are available to improve performance:
l Raise the aggregation level for the PDCCHs.
l Increase the transmit power of the PDCCHs based on the number of lost REGs.
l Transmit the PDCCHs over the full bandwidth. However, this function is not
recommended because it may cause interference to the neighboring RATs. The function
is controlled by the PDCCH_CAPACITY_OPT_SWITCH option of the
CellLteFlexBw.LteFlexBwSwitch parameter. For details, see 6.6 Parameter
Optimization.

3.2.3 PDSCH Resource Allocation


With LTE flexible bandwidth, PDSCH resource allocation operates in the same way as on
standard bandwidths, although the number of RBs available for each PDSCH decreases as the
total number of available RBs decreases.
To improve the peak rates of UEs at the cell center, LTE Flexible Bandwidth provides the
PDSCH optimization function. This function is controlled by the
CellDlschAlgo.RBDamageNearPointIblerTh parameter. For details, see 6.6 Parameter
Optimization. This function may cause interference to the neighboring RATs.

3.2.4 PUCCH Resource Allocation


PUCCHs normally use RBs at two edges of the frequency bands. With LTE flexible
bandwidth, the PUCCH is moved inwards, between the GSM carrier and the LTE central
frequency. For details about the channel distribution before and after the adjustment, see 3.1.2
Usage Scenarios.

3.2.5 PUSCH Resource Allocation


With LTE flexible bandwidth, PUSCH resource allocation is the same as that for standard
bandwidths, although the number of RBs available for each PUSCH decreases because the
eNodeB punctures the RBs, but the total number of RBs available for the PUCCHs and
PRACHs remains unchanged.

3.2.6 SRS and PRACH Resource Allocation


With LTE flexible bandwidth, SRS and PRACH resource allocation is the same as that for
standard bandwidths. Resources for SRSs and PRACHs are allocated on available RBs.
Because RBs are punctured, SRSs and PRACHs may use the same RBs.

LTE Flexible Bandwidth Feature Parameter Description 3 Technical Description

3.2.7 CQI Adjustment


The channel quality indicator (CQI) adjustment algorithm applies to both standard and
flexible LTE bandwidths. This algorithm corrects measurement errors caused by LTE flexible
bandwidths and increases the spectral efficiency of LTE flexible bandwidth.
With LTE flexible bandwidth, UEs do not know what portion of the RBs is punctured and
therefore measure full-band pilot strengths over the entire standard bandwidth. eNodeBs do
not transmit reference signals (RSs) on punctured RBs. Therefore, the measurement results
are incorrect. The full-band signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) measured by UEs is
lower than the actual SINR, especially close to the cell center.
If an eNodeB performs scheduling other than frequency selective scheduling based on
wideband CQIs from a UE, the CQI adjustment algorithm can offset the measurement
deviations to improve the spectral efficiency of LTE flexible bandwidths. If an eNodeB
performs frequency selective scheduling based on subband CQIs with reporting mode 2-x
from a UE, the eNodeB uses wideband CQIs for subbands where no subband CQIs are
available. In this situation, the eNodeB derives a modulation and coding scheme (MCS) based
on the combined wideband and subband CQIs and delivers the MCS to the UE. As a result,
the CQI adjustment algorithm provides lower accuracy, which has little impact on
performance and overall resource allocation fairness in frequency selective scheduling mode.
For details about the CQI adjustment algorithm, see Scheduling Feature Parameter
Description.

LTE Flexible Bandwidth Feature Parameter Description 5 Network Impact

5 Network Impact

System Capacity
The LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature increases the spectral efficiency and system capacity for
any given amount of available bandwidth.

Network Performance
l The LTE Flexible Bandwidth increases the number of available RBs and improves
average UE throughput and cell throughput. However, UEs in a cell where LTE flexible
bandwidth has been deployed experience greater inter-RAT interference (caused by GSM
networks in GL refarming scenarios) than those in a cell with the standard bandwidth.
This interference reduces the access success rate, handover success rate, and service drop
rate. In addition, the block error rate (BLER) on the LTE network increases because
spectrum resources are shared by GSM and LTE networks.
l The LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature increases discontinuous transmissions. In coverage-
restricted scenarios, the number of RRC connection reestablishments increases and the
reestablishment success rate deteriorates.
l Some UEs perform channel estimation based on the signal to interference plus noise
ratio (SINR) measured over the full bandwidth. This increases the RRC connection
reestablishments of a few cell edge UEs due to poor demodulation performance.
l The GSM networks are interfered by LTE networks because spectrum resources are
shared by GSM and LTE networks.

6 Engineering Guidelines

6.1 When to Use


LTE Flexible Bandwidth is recommended when spectrum resources acquired by an operator
meet the conditions in Table 6-1.

Scenario Total Bandwidth (MHz) LTE Available


Bandwidth (MHz)

1 10 8

2 15 12

3 20 16

l In GL refarming scenarios, spectrum resources for GSM are decreased while those for
LTE are increased. Before enabling LTE Flexible Bandwidth, check whether the
following conditions are met:
The RRU power accommodates the requirements on the total power after LTE
spectrum resource adjustment.
The CPRI and eX2 transmission bandwidths meet the requirements on the
bandwidth after LTE spectrum resource adjustment.
When GSM and LTE share an RRU, refarm GSM frequencies after LTE Flexible
Bandwidth is enabled. Otherwise, the refarming fails because GSM and LTE frequency
overlapping is prohibited by the system verification.
l After LTE Flexible Bandwidth is enabled, LTE central frequencies and PCIs will change.
Update the following configurations for other cells: external cells, neighboring cells, and
inter-frequency and inter-RAT frequencies.
l When LTE Flexible Bandwidth is enabled, BTSBBMODE.BBMODE of the
neighboring GSM cell cannot be set to BBEXT(Whole Baseband Extension).

NOTE

The downlink PRB configuration is not shown here because the downlink customized starting and
ending PRB indexes must be the same as the uplink customized starting and ending PRB indexes,
respectively.

For example, when the LTE standard bandwidth is 20 MHz, the PUCCH Periodic CQI
Optimize Switch is set to ON(On) with Delta shift set to DS1_DELTA_SHIFT(ds1), the
uplink RB ranges that can be configured are as follows for the cell activation:

The uplink customized starting PRB index ranges from 0 to 20 and the uplink customized
ending PRB index ranges from 79 to 99.

Scenario 2
In Scenario 2, the number of RBs after the channel adjustment may be less than that of RBs
required by the SRSs, causing cell activation failure. The following methods can be used to
prevent this.

1. The following table describes the parameter that must be set in the SRSCfg MO to
configure the SRS information.

Configuration Effect
When the feature is enabled, uplink and downlink gains differ along with various
configurations. Use 20 MHz bandwidth as an example. The following two configurations
provide same available RBs and bring different influences on single-UE uplink and downlink
peak rates.
Configuration 1: The customized starting PRB index is 5 and ending PRB index is 94 both in
the uplink and downlink.

6.4.5 Activation Observation


The following procedure uses activation observation for the LTE flexible bandwidth 10 MHz
(without NB-IoT) as an example:

After this feature is activated in a cell, check whether the value of L.ChMeas.PRB.UL.Avail
is 42 and the value of L.ChMeas.PRB.DL.Avail is 42. If they are, this feature has been
activated.

NOTE

System Bandwidth in the result of the received signal strength indicator (RSSI) statistics monitoring
task on the U2000 indicates the standard bandwidth before compression.

6.4.6.1 Using the CME


For detailed operations, see CME-based Feature Configuration.

6.4.6.2 Using MML Commands


Run the MOD CELLLTEFLEXBW command to deselect the LTE_FB_CFG_SWITCH
option of the CellLteFlexBw.LteFlexBwSwitch parameter.

6.4.6.3 MML Command Examples


//Setting the Flexible Bandwidth Optimization Switch parameter

LteFlexBwSwitch=LTE_FB_CFG_SWITCH-0&PDCCH_CAPACITY_OPT_SWITCH-0&UL_WEAK_GSM_ITF_PR
OCESS_SW-0&UL_STRONG_GSM_ITF_PROCESS_SW-0;

6.5 Performance Monitoring


In LTE networks where operators' bandwidths are less than the standard bandwidths of 10
MHz, 15 MHz, or 20 MHz, the LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature increases spectral efficiency
and cell throughput. Operators can monitor the cell throughput to evaluate the gains brought
by this feature.

If an LTE flexible bandwidth produces significantly higher throughput than the corresponding
standard bandwidth, the performance of the LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature is good. If the
LTE flexible bandwidth produces lower throughput, this feature has not taken effect. For
example, an operator allocated an 8 MHz bandwidth can use only a 5 MHz bandwidth before
the operator activates the LTE Flexible Bandwidth feature. In contrast, the operator can use an
8 MHz bandwidth after activating the feature. The benefits of the LTE Flexible Bandwidth
feature can be evaluated by comparing the throughput of the 5 MHz bandwidth and the 8
MHz bandwidth.
