ITCF parameter
NUMBER OF IGNORED TRANSCODER FAILURE (ITCF)
This Parameter is used to check how many Transcoder Failure the system
will receive before it Releases the calls.
Explanation:
After a speech path connection has been established between the BTS and the TC,
they try to align with each other to enable speech coding both in uplink and downlink
directions. If the alignment procedure fails, speech decoding also fails and speech is
no longer audible. In this case, the BTS sends CONNECTION_FAILURE_INDICATION
message to the BSC. The BSC requests for a clearing and then releases the resources
connected to the call. The cause field in this failure indication message is "REMOTE
TRANSCODER FAIL
When more aggressive HR is introduced, due to the interference in the air interface
and signaling messages can be lost. Re-sending the messages one or more times can
lengthen the call establishment dramatically and this might lead to trigger of REMOTE
TRANSCODE FAIL counters.

If parameter ITCF is set to 0 (default), the call clearing procedure will be triggered
immediately when CONNECTION_FAILURE_INDICATION message (with cause
transcoder failure) is received from BTS. Otherwise, BSC will not release the ongoing
call until the number of CONNECTION_FAILURE_INDICATION messages (with cause
transcoder failure) received exceeds ITCF. BTS repeats the message at one-second
intervals. If the frame synchronization is obtained again or the call is released, the
counting of remote transcoder failure causes begins from zero again.

ITCF parameter
Advantage & Disadvantage if ITCF
[ ITCF=4 ]
If the circuit is really faulty the call will be released after the BSC receives the four
CONNECTION_FAILURE_INDICATION message from the TC. So in this case call will
continue on the Time slot for some time ( till 4 messages are not received) even if the
BSC knows that the circuit is faulty.

Secondly if the circuit is affected by a short term disturbance ( eg. short term
transmission disturbance) which causes a loss of TRAU frame synchronization the call
will NOT be released by the system.

ITCF parameter
ITCF testing results on Mumbai Network
Settings in all the BSCs, ITCF = 0
On 13/02/06 ITCF settings were changed to 2 for all BSC in Mumbai Network.
Observation: Drop in no of Tr_Fail and Tch drop have improved.
Nokia Recommend to change the settings to 2 on all BSCs where we have aggressive HR.
