 Difference between Cell barred and Cell reserved. HO is allowed even for barred cell.

 Access Class: There are a total of 15 Access classes defined in LTE . Access class (AC) information for
a UE is stored in the USIM(your UE SIM card).
o Barring Factor : It can have a value from 0 to 0.95 in steps of 0.05. This factor determines if
a UE needs to treat a cell as barred or not.
o Barring Time: It decides how long of a duration the cell will be treated as barred by a UE. It
can have a value such as 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 and 512 seconds
o Barring for Special AC : This is a Boolean parameter. It has a value either TRUE or FALSE. If
cell barring is applied for special Access classes then Barring for Special Access Class will
have a value TRUE and vice versa.
 What is PCI Mode-30 Just like in downlink, every 3rd or 6th PCI collides on the reference signals,
every 30th PCI has the same pattern of uplink reference signals. In case, two adjacent cells have
same PCI mod30, then the cell can have difficulty in decoding which can result in higher block error
rate in uplink. However, this is not a critical issue and very rarely observed in the commercial
 PCFICH COLLISIONS, In LTE, the PCFICH is one of the channels that gets its location determined
based on the PCI. This also means that every PCFICH will repeat its position for some PCIs. Basic rule
is that every 50th PCI will have same location of PCFICH for 20MHz channel while every 25th PCI will
have same location of PCFICH for 10MHz channels. Such a scenario can cause decoding failures or
higher block error rate on PCFICH and since PCFICH is required to decode PDCCH so it can cause DTX
(decoding failure of grants on PDCCH).But once again it is difficult to observe in FDD systems and
another fact that most of the documents overlook is that PCFICH consists of 4REGs. Each REG has 4
REs but we have reference signals in a LTE system after every 2 REs. So, each PCFICH REG will have
Reference Signals embedded inside and that means that 2 PCFICHs usually do not overlap each
other completely.
