# CALCULATING 2G PAGING CAPABILITY (HW)

Calculating Paging load per LAC with formula = Maximum Paging delivered / Maximum
Paging Capability per Hour, where:
a. Maximum Paging delivered used from  max A330:Delivered Paging Messages for
CS Service (none) from last 2 weeks
b. Maximum Paging Capability = # of Paging block * Delivering Subscriber address
method (TMSI / IMSI) * # of Frame number on CCCH * 3600

## - Theoretically, # of paging block in Non-combined BCCH is 9 sharing block (PCH +

AGCH) while 1 block is reserved for AGCH (Can be set through BSAGBLKRES). So
in Non combined BCCH, maximum paging block only 5 block (with assumption
another half of multi-frame block is used by AGCH)
- On extended BCCH, all CCCH block can be used for PCH, because AGCH is
already config on Main BCCH multi-frame
- Delivering Subscriber address is having 2 methodology, which are TMSI (4
message per paging request) and IMSI (2 message per paging request).
- # of frame number on CCCH = # of FN in 1 multiframe = 4 FN
- So, maximum paging capability per hour in 1 LAC =
 Without Extended BCCH = 5*4*4*3600 = 288000 Paging Message
 With Extended BCCH = 9*4*4*3600 = 518400 Paging Message
