Measurement report UMTS and LTE

Measu remen t rep o rt 3G Two types of Measurement reporting is possible in 3G 1. Periodic 2. Event triggered Measurement reporting parameters for both Periodic and Event triggered are set through system information. Measurement report is send by the UE if a specific condition fulfilled. To set the reporting condition, parameters are set in the system information 11 for idle state and system information 12 for connected state. If the parameters are not set in system information, it could be send through Measurement control.

Measurement report UMTS and LTE comparison


LTE Measurement Events and Description Event A1 - Serving becomes better than threshold UMTS Measurement Events and Description e2f - The estimated quality of the currently used frequency is above a certain threshold Comments In LTE this may be used to stop looking for a cell on a different frequency or technology, as e2f is used in UMTS. In LTE this may be used to start looking for a cell on a different frequency or technology, as e2d is used in UMTS. This comparison is a bit of a stretch. The reason I have equated them is because in both cases a neighbor should be considered for a handover, either soft or hard depending on the technology.

Event A2 - Serving becomes worse than threshold

e2d - The estimated quality of the currently used frequency is below a certain threshold

Event A3 - Neighbor becomes offset better than serving

e1a - A Primary CPICH enters the reporting range

Event A4 - Neighbor becomes better than threshold Event A5 - Serving becomes worse than threshold1 and neighbor becomes better than threshold2

e1e - A Primary CPICH becomes better than an absolute threshold e2b - The estimated quality of the currently used frequency is below a certain threshold and the estimated quality of a nonused frequency is above a

This comparison is good for saying that the current cell is below an absolute threshold and the new cell is above a threshold. This would mean

certain threshold

that the current cell is not good enough and the new one is good, which is a good reason to do a hard handover (in either technology).

Event B1 - Inter RAT neighbor becomes better than threshold Event B2 - Serving becomes worse than threshold1 and inter RAT neighbor becomes better than threshold2

e3c - The estimated quality of other system is above a certain threshold e3a - The estimated quality of the currently used UTRAN frequency is below a certain threshold and the estimated quality of the other system is above a certain threshold

This comparison is good for saying that the current cell is below an absolute threshold and the new cell on a different technology is above a threshold. This would mean that the current cell is not good enough and the new one is good, which is a good reason to do a hard handover to the new technology.
