especially in terms of PS RAB setup/release. •Better handle of the paging load by reducing the paging area. There is no data transfer for PS and incase of incoming paging. the Network pages the UE on the URA level. Parameter Description: PchRrcStates=URA_PCH Trial Cluster: RNC N309 Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction. The UE is placed in this state incase of low activity.Introduction Feature Description: Cell/URA_PCH states are UTRAN Connected mode states where UE is only RRC Connected(No RAB). Trial Objectives : •It reduces signaling load. •The usage of additional states provides Better resources usage than only Cell_DCH and Cell_FACH configurations. . •Significant improvement on UE Battery consumption.

ALL RIGHTS instruction.  Intermediate  Less latency on the upsize for PS sessions high  improvement on paging load in between of cell-PCH and URA_PCH.  high  Less latency on the upsize for PS sessions  high  Improvement on paging load depending on the number of URA_id’s  Intermediate  Expected improvement on Ue battery life (not measured)  high  Increase on the PS Iu contexts kept in RNC Advantages vs Drawbacks with Cell_PCH  Signaling load will be a balance between more Cell-Update vs less RRC.  Intermediate based on settings  Expected improvement on Ue battery life  high  Increase on the PS Iu contexts kept in RNC 5 Alcatel-Lucent – Internal COPYRIGHTProprietary © 2011 ALCATEL-LUCENT.  high  Increase on the PS Iu contexts kept in RNC Advantages vs Drawbacks with URA_PCHandCell_PCH  Balance between Signaling load Cell_PCH vs URA_PCH depending on Cell reselection load .CellPCH vs URAPCH Advantages vs Drawbacks with URA_PCH  Improvement on the signaling load.  high  Expected improvement on Ue battery life.  low. less TMU load observed. depends on network profile  Less latency on the upsize for PS sessions high  Higher improvement on paging load than with URA_PCH.

2011 Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction. .1.2 Trial Results 6 | UA7.3 KPI Investigation Methodology | Feb.

. Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction.RRC/RAB ATTEMPTS Decrease in RRC/RAB Attempts(PS/HS) by around 52% observed.

.TMU LOAD •Decrease in TMU Load For the RNC observed(decrease by 33%). Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction.

.ACCESSIBILITY KPIS •Slight degradation observed in PS/HS CSSR due to reduction in the number of attempts. Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction.

CS CALL DROP RATE •Increase in CS_CDR observed due to Multirab Traffic(ticket opened with Support Team). Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction. .

MULTIRAB TRAFFIC/DROPS •Increase in Multirab Traffic and Drops observed which is the main contributor towards degraded CS CDR. Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction. .

PS CALL DROP RATE •Increase in PS_CDR observed due to high FACH Load(ticket opened with Support Team). . Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction.

HS CALL DROP RATE •Increase in HS_CDR observed. Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction. .

.CONGESTION •Increase in Code Congestion resulting in degraded Throughput observed initially which was relieved after enabling Multirab with HS. Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction.

3 Summary 15 | UA7.1.3 KPI Investigation Methodology | Feb. . 2011 Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction.

Alcatel-Lucent – Internal Proprietary – Use pursuant to Company instruction. Ticket opened with the Support Team for this issue and awaiting their feedback. Disadvantages: Degradation observed in CS_CDR/PS_CDR.Summary Advantages: Improvement observed in the CPU load(TMU) observed with decrease in the number of RRC/RAB Attempts.Also. increase in FACH load observed. .
