lte ho parameters trial
Overview
• A study on the effect of handover parameters on the network performance
will be done in a trial cluster (part of Cerritos)
• The parameter change to be implemented as an iterative process with each
drive and the results to be compared to analyze the effect of the
parameters
• Following parameters to be changed
A3offset;
hysteresisA3;
filtercoefficientEutranRsrp;
sMeasure;
timetotriggerA3
Review: LTE HO
• Evaluates if one or more intra frequency cell is better than current serving
cell
• UE receives measurement configuration in RRC Connection Reconfiguration
• No measurement list sent to UE (UE search for all 504 physical cell id and
reports the cell(s) fulfilling the event criteria).
• UE Event Trigger controlled by:
– Filtering (How much averaging is done before event evaluation)
– Offset (How much better in dB)
– Time to trigger (For how long)
Main Trigger Parameters
•
sMeasure = 0 { -140..-44, 0 } [dBm]
Controlling if the UE is required to perform measurements.
Disabled if set to “0” (used only RSRP is the trigger)
•
a3offset = 30 { -150..150 } [0.1 dB]
Offset value for EventA3, added to serving cell
•
hysteresisA3 = 10 { 0..150 } [0.1 dB]
Hysteresis value for eventA3, added to neighbor cell
•
timeToTriggerA3 = 40 { 0, 40, 64, 80, 100, 128, 160, 256, 320, 480, 512,
640, 1024, 1280, 2560, 5120 } [ms]
Time after Event A3 is fulfilled when UE starts to send Measurement reports
•
triggerQuantityA3 = RSRP [RSRP,RSRQ]
The quantity that triggers the event
•
cellIndividualOffsetEUtran
Offset value specific to a neighbor relation
Handover Filtering
• To avoid that the measurement reporting is triggered by fast fading, the
measurement configuration contains filter coefficient for the UE to use
• filterCoefficientEUtraRsrp = 9{ 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 }
Filter coefficient for RSRP measurements
• filterCoefficientEUtraRsrq = 11{ 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 }
Filter coefficient for RSRQ measurements
Event A3: A neighbour cell(b) becomes offset
better than serving cell(a)

There was a clear decrease in the number of handovers and an increase in the
RSRP/RSRQ delta as went from a3offset=0 to a3offset=40.
This is expected as the sum of hysteresisA3 and a3offset increases.
Notice, as expected, Delta RSRP ~ hysteresisA3+a3offset.

SINR
•
The effect of sMeasure parameter on the network is inconclusive in regards to the
performed drives.
Summary
• Tested parameters for the most part resulted in the expected behavior:
– Number of Handover events.
– RSRP/RSRQ delta upon Handover.
– Pre-handover SINR performance.
• Part of the unexpected behavior can be attributed to the variation in drive
test setup between some of the drives.
• The effect of sMeasure parameter on the network is inconclusive at this
point. It will be further analyzed during the testing on DAS nodes.
• Current Baseline is pretty suitable to the network at this early stage of
operation. It is recommended that optimization, when performed, be
performed on a case by case basis.
