NB AMR Activation in NSN RAN

November 24th , 2011

Introduction:

NB-AMR was implemented on 24th of Aug 2011 in all Wind network. This report shows: The feature is working properly in all RNCs. By showing the lower NB-AMR Codecs penetration in both RNC and cell levels. The parameters that were tuned in order to improve HSDPA/Voice AS Failures that are due to lack of DL power. The most important parameters for NB-AMR activation and tuning. The most important counters of the feature test.

NB-AMR Codecs utilization RNC level (Weekly resolution)

NB-Amr Activation

The Lower NB-Amr codec penetration in NSN RNCs are (on weekly resolution): 20% in TOR1 RNC 4% in OTT RNC 1% in TOR2 RNC.

NB-AMR Codecs utilization RNC level (Hourly resolution)

The Lower NB-Amr codec penetration in NSN RNCs are (on hourly resolution): 30% in TOR1 RNC 6% in OTT RNC 4% in TOR2 RNC.

Lower NB-AMR Codecs penetration is 30% average daily and 50% hourly.

NB AMR Parameters (1/2).


LoadBasedAMRCodecMode: This parameter enables/disables the feature Load based AMR codec mode selection. CSAMRModeSET: This parameter defines the AMR mode sets used in UTRAN for the CS AMR call. AMR codec sets (12.2), (12.2, 7.95, 5.90, 4.75) and (5.90, 4.75) AMRTargetSC: This parameter defines the target threshold for the downlink spreading code load. The downlink spreading code load is defined as a quotient of reserved and all spreading codes in the spreading code tree on level SF=128. The Load Based AMR Codec Mode Selection feature uses the target threshold. If there are HS-PDSCH codes reserved from the code tree, those HS-PDSCH codes that exceed the minimum number of HS-PDSCH codes are not considered as reserved ones in terms of spreading code load. Default value= 70%. AMRUnderSC: This parameter defines the underload threshold for the downlink spreading code load. Default value= 50%.

AMROverSC: This parameter defines the overload threshold for the downlink spreading code load. Default value= 90%.

NB AMR Parameters (2/2).

AMRTargetTxNonHSPA: This parameter defines the offset that is used to calculate the target threshold of PtxnonHSPA. The target threshold for PtxnonHSPA is PtxTarget+AMRTargetTxNonHSPA. The Load Based AMR Codec Mode Selection feature uses the target threshold. Default value= -1 dB. AMRUnderTxNonHSPA: This parameter defines the offset that is used to calculate an underload threshold of PtxnonHSPA. Default value= -10 dB.

AMROverTxNonHSPA: This parameter defines an offset that is used to calculate the overload threshold of PtxnonHSPA . Default value= 0 dB.
AMRTargetTxTotal: This parameter defines the offset that is used to calculate the target threshold of PtxTotal. The target threshold for an average total transmitted wide band power is PtxTarget + AMRTargetTxTotal. The Load based AMR Codec Mode Selection feature uses the target threshold. Default value= 0 dB. AMRUnderTxTotal: This parameter defines the offset that is used to calculate the underload threshold of PtxTotal. Default value= -10 dB. AMROverTxTotal: This parameter defines the coefficient which is used to calculate the overload threshold of PtxTotal. Default value= 2 dB.

Code Load based AMR usage Cells level

After 60W implementation, the Code based Load has increased after clearing the TxPower limitation

Most of AMR lower codecs are triggered by TxPower load rather than Code load.

Parameters tuning
The bellow parameters were changed on OTR0080_C (High HSDPA AC Failures fur to loack of DL pwr) and OTR0695_B (High Voice AC Failures due to lack of DL pwr)

In OTR0080_C, the objective of the change was to free up more power to HSDPA. In OTR0695_B, the objective was to use lower the target Tx power load to use lower codecs in advance in order to accept more users. Both changes havent shown the expected results. We will continue on working on the parameters tuning in order to improve the HSDPA and Voice CSSR.

Conclusion:

The feature is working as expected. Good NB-AMR lower codec penetration in RNC TOR1 especially in the highly congested cells. The Lower NB-Amr codec penetration in NSN RNCs are (on hourly resolution):
30% in TOR1 RNC 6% in OTT RNC 4% in TOR2 RNC.

NB-AMR parameters tuning on cell level are still ongoing to offload highly congested cells because of AC failures due to lack of DL power.
