Configuration - Nth value ‘X’ < Nth value ‘Y’ ;

More UEs are selected for ANR during Discovery and after convergence is reached relatively less UEs are selected for ANR.

• Operator configurable default settings as of pre-R5:

• Y = 20

Nth UE Selection
• Nth UE selection triggering conditions are the same as
today (e.g. Initial Context Setup Request / Hand-In), with
the following exception for 1xRTT
– For 1xRTT only Initial Context Setup Request will trigger Nth UE selection
– FR10348: Nth UE selection is triggered only if eNodeB Congestion State is
