Inter-RAT Cell Reselection Trial

Report
Inter-RAT Cell Reselection Trial
Objective
• To find a good balance between coverage and
performance for LTE by adjusting UMTS
reselection to LTE
Background Information
• Idle mode reselection parameters from LTE to UMTS and vice versa was set
to -110 dBm for the market
– 30% RRC MO-Signaling: UE ping pong from LTE to UMTS with high RRC
failures
• Reselection from UMTS to LTE was set to AT&T GSV of -104 dBm while LTE
to UMTS was retained at -110 dBm
– 12% RRC MO-Signaling, reduced RRC failures due to signaling
– 20% ERAB attempts lost
– 6 dB reselection hysteresis may be too high
Summary of UMTS SIB19
Impact
• Negligible impact seen on Accessibility and Retainability
– Increased RRC, ERAB and S1 Signaling Attempts
– RRC Distribution shows a 6% (abs) increase in RRC MO signaling
• Threshhigh at 16 – RRC signaling at 12%
• Threshhigh at 14 – RRC signaling at 18%
– Traffic increase
• Small Increase in IRAT Session Continuity to WCDMA
• Throughput is unchanged
Parameterization
• UMTS
– Threshhigh – 16 (Gold Standard Value, initial value)
– Threshhigh – 14 (Current Setting)
• LTE (idle mode)
– EUtranCellFDD: qRxLevMin: -120 (GSV)
– EUtranCellFDD: sNonIntraSearch:10 (GSV)
– EUtranCellFDD: threshServingLow:10 (GSV)
• LTE (dedicated mode)
– ReportConfigEUtraBadCovPrim: a2ThresholdRsrpPrim: -115 (Current Setting)
Idle Mode Behaviour
UE reselects to UMTS when RSRP falls below -110 dBm and UE reselects to
LTE when LTE measured RSRP is -106 dBm
Dedicated Mode Behaviour
UE will IRAT to UMTS when RSRP is -116 dBm (-115 dBm + 1 dB hysteresis).
UE will remain in LTE longer when in dedicated mode.
