Overview

2.1 Background
As wireless data services rapidly grow and conditions mature for LTE commercial use, telecom
operators are beginning to execute plans to build LTE networks upon existing UMTS networks.
These two types of networks will have to coexist for a long time, so interoperability between
UMTS and LTE is important. This feature helps make the most of existing network equipment,
provide diversified services, and achieve smooth network evolution. Huawei products support
interoperability between UMTS and time division duplex (TDD) LTE and between UMTS and
frequency division duplex (FDD) LTE.

2.2 Function Classification

2.3 Application Scenarios


2.3.1 Scenario 1: Only Data Cards, Only Data Services, LTE
Coverage Still Incomplete
Description
l

UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs only support PS services and PS handovers.


UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs can initiate services in both the UMTS and LTE networks.

No IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) has been deployed on the LTE network and therefore
VoIP services are not supported.

LTE coverage is still incomplete.

UE Camping Policy
In scenario 1, the UE camping policy is as follows: An LTE-first policy is recommended for UE
camping, because commercial UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs are all in data-card mode.
To adopt an LTE-first policy for UE camping, set high priorities for LTE frequencies so that the
LTE network is preferred during cell reselection.
Cell reselection is performed to shift UEs in idle mode or the CELL_PCH/URA_PCH state
between UMTS and LTE. For details, see chapter 3 Cell Reselection Between UMTS and
LTE.

CS Service Policy
CS services are not supported, because commercial UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs are all in datacard mode.

PS Service Policy
In scenario 1, the PS service policy is as follows:
l

Since LTE coverage is still incomplete, when a UE processing a PS service on the LTE
network moves out of the LTE coverage area, a PS handover or redirection to the UMTS
network is performed for the UE and the PS service. For details, see section 4.2 LTE-toUMTS PS Redirections and Handovers.

When a UE processing a PS service on the UMTS network moves to an LTE coverage area,
a PS handover or redirection to the LTE network is not performed.

2.3.2 Scenario 2: Not Only Data Cards, Only Data Services, CSFB
Supported, LTE Coverage Still Incomplete
Description
l

Commercial UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs in data-card mode and non-data-card mode are
in use.

No IMS has been deployed on the LTE network and therefore VoIP services are not
supported.

The networks and UEs support CSFB.

LTE coverage is still incomplete.

UE Camping Policy
In scenario 2, the UE camping policy is as follows:
Huawei products support either the LTE network or the UMTS network as the preferred choice
for UE camping. An LTE-first policy is recommended for this phase. To adopt a UMTS-first
policy for UE camping, set low priorities for LTE frequencies so that the UMTS network is
preferred during cell reselection.

CS Service Policy
In scenario 2, the CS service policy is as follows:
l

When a UE initiates a voice service on the LTE network, both the UE and the voice service
will fall back to the UMTS network.
The CSFB policy is as follows:
The eNodeB preferentially selects a non-overloaded UMTS target cell for CSFB to
reduce the CSFB delay and improve user experience. For details, see chapter 8 "RIM
Based UMTS Target Cell Selection for LTE."
Emergency calls initiated on the LTE network are ensured a high CSFB success rate.
For details, see chapter 5.2 CS Fallback Guarantee for LTE Emergency Calls.

A UE processing a CS service or CS/PS combined service on the UMTS network remains


on the UMTS network to ensure CS service continuity.

PS Service Policy
In scenario 2, the PS service policy is as follows:
l

Since LTE coverage is still incomplete in this phase, when a UE processing a PS service
on the LTE network moves out of LTE coverage, a PS handover or redirection to the UMTS
network will be performed. For details, see section 4.2 LTE-to-UMTS PS Redirections
and Handovers. When a UE processing a PS service on the UMTS network moves to an
LTE coverage area, the UE can remain on the UMTS network.

A UMTS-first policy can be adopted for UE camping. Under this policy, when a UE initiates
a PS service in a UMTS/LTE overlapping coverage area, a service-based UMTS-to-LTE
PS handover or redirection is performed to shift the UE and the PS service to the LTE

network. This mechanism makes efficient use of the LTE network. For details, see section
4.3.3 Service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS Redirections and Handovers.
l

When a UE processing a PS service initiates a CS service, CSFB is performed and a PS


handover or redirection is used to shift the PS service to the UMTS network. If the PS
service is still in progress when the CS service is complete and the LTE signal quality meets
specific conditions, a service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover or redirection is
performed to shift the UE and the PS service back to the LTE network. For details, see
section 4.3.3 Service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS Redirections and Handovers.

If a load-based LTE-to-UMTS handover is triggered when the LTE cell is congested, the
UE is preferentially handed over to a non-congested or non-overloaded UMTS cell. This
avoids inter-RAT ping-pong handovers, improves the handover preparation success rate,
and reduces loads on the LTE network. For details, see chapter 7 RIM Based UMTS
Target Cell Selection for LTE.

2.3.3 Scenario 3: Data and VoIP Services Supported, LTE Coverage


Still Incomplete
Description
l

An IMS has been deployed on the LTE network. Therefore, both PS data services and VoIP
services are supported.

LTE coverage is still incomplete.

UE Camping Policy
An LTE-first policy is recommended. If the delay caused by CSFB is too long to ensure service
quality, adopt a UMTS-first policy.

CS Service Policy
In scenario 3, the CS service policy is as follows:
l

When a UE processing a VoIP service on the LTE network moves out of the LTE coverage
area, the Single Radio Voice Call Continuity (SRVCC) feature converts the VoIP service
to a CS service on the UMTS network. This mechanism ensures voice service continuity.
For details, see chapter 7 "SRVCC from LTE to UMTS with PS Handover."

A UE processing a CS service or CS/PS combined service remains on the UMTS network


to ensure CS service continuity.

PS Service Policy
In scenario 3, the PS service policy is as follows:
l

Since LTE coverage is still incomplete, when a UE processing a PS service on the LTE
network moves out of the LTE coverage area, a PS handover or redirection to the UMTS

3 Cell Reselection Between UMTS and LTE

Cell Reselection Between UMTS and LTE

3.1 Overview
Cell reselection between UMTS and LTE includes UMTS-to-LTE cell reselection, LTE-toUMTS cell reselection, UMTS-to-LTE fast return, and UMTS-to-LTE quick cell reselection.
When camping on the UMTS network, a UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE receives system
information from the UMTS cell. System information block 19 (SIB19) carries the absolute
priorities of the serving UMTS cell and LTE frequencies. If the absolute priorities of one or
more LTE frequencies are higher than the absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell, the
corresponding LTE cell or cells are the preferred target cells for cell reselection. If the absolute
priorities of all LTE frequencies are lower than the absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell,
UMTS cells are the preferred target cells for cell reselection.
When camping on the LTE network, a UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE receives system information
from the LTE cell. SIB3 carries the absolute priority of the serving LTE cell, SIB5 carries the
absolute priorities of the LTE frequencies, and SIB6 carries the absolute priorities of the UMTS
frequencies. You can manipulate these priorities to favor UMTS or LTE cells as target cells for
reselection.
When camping on the UMTS network, a UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE can initiate UMTS-toLTE cell reselection only when it is in the CELL_PCH or idle state. To accelerate the reselection
process, you need to enable fast state transition from CELL_DCH to CELL_PCH or from
CELL_DCH to the idle state. With this function, the UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE can transit to
the CELL_PCH or idle state within a short period of time after data transmission is complete,
thereby initiating the UMTS-to-LTE cell reselection.
The SibCfgBitMap(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the
ADD/MOD
UCELLSIBSWITCH command specifies whether to broadcast SIB19.

3.2 LTE-to-UMTS Cell Reselection


LTE-to-UMTS cell reselection is used when the LTE network is new and provides incomplete
coverage, but the UMTS coverage is complete. LTE-to-UMTS cell reselection is based on
absolute priorities and mainly involves the LTE network.

3 Cell Reselection Between UMTS and LTE

3.3 UMTS-to-LTE Cell Reselection


3.3.1 Overview
This chapter describes the WRFD-020126 Mobility Between UMTS and LTE Phase 1 feature.
When a UE in the UMTS network receives SIB19 and specific conditions are met, the UE starts
measuring the LTE signal quality. Based on the measurement results, the UE camps on the best
cell by performing reselection.

3.3.2 Criteria for Starting Measurements


SIB19 carries the absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell, the absolute priorities of the LTE
frequencies, and the cell reselection thresholds. Different radio access technologies (RATs) must
have different priorities. Upon receiving SIB19, the UE does the following:
l

If SrxlevServingCell is less than or equal to Sprioritysearch1 or SqualServingCell is less than or


equal to Sprioritysearch2, the serving UMTS cell has poor signal quality. In this situation, the
UE starts measuring the signal quality of the neighboring LTE cells that work on low- and
high-priority frequencies.

If SrxlevServingCell is greater than Sprioritysearch1 and SqualServingCell is greater than


Sprioritysearch2, the serving UMTS cell has good signal quality. In this situation, the UE
measures the signal quality of the LTE frequencies that have higher absolute priorities than
the serving cell at an interval of at least Thigher_priority_search.

Where,
l

According to section 4.2.2 Requirements in 3GPP TS 25.133 V11.5.0, the value of


Thigher_priority_search is the number of frequencies multiplied by 60, in the unit of
second.

The SPriority(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD UCELLSELRESEL or MOD


UCELLSELRESEL command specifies the absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell.

The NPriority(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO


or MOD UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO command specifies the absolute priorities of the
LTE frequencies.

The ThdPrioritySearch1(BSC6900,BSC6910) and ThdPrioritySearch2


(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameters in the ADD UCELLSELRESEL or MOD
UCELLSELRESEL command specify the values of Sprioritysearch1 and Sprioritysearch2,
respectively.
Sprioritysearch1 specifies the CPICH RSCP thresholds for measuring the low- and highpriority LTE frequencies. CPICH RSCP refers to the common pilot channel received
signal code power.
Sprioritysearch2 specifies the CPICH Ec/N0 thresholds for measuring the low- and highpriority LTE frequencies. CPICH Ec/N0 refers to the signal-to-noise ratio of the CPICH.
The other variables are defined as follows:
Srxlev: cell RX level value (dB)

SqualServingCell: serving cell's Ec/N0 measured by the UE minus Qqualmin

The UE should not perform cell reselection to a cell for which cell selection criterion S is not
fulfilled. For details about criterion S, see UE Behaviors in Idle Mode Feature Parameter
Description.

3.3.3 Criteria for Triggering Cell Reselection


After measuring the UMTS serving cell and LTE frequencies, the UE shifts to the best cell by
performing reselection.
SIB19 carries the absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell, the absolute priorities of the LTE
frequencies, and the cell reselection thresholds. The UE performs cell reselection based on the
absolute priorities.
Section 5.2.6.1.4a Absolute priority based criteria for inter-frequency and inter-RAT cell
reselection in 3GPP TS 25.304 V11.3.0 specifies five sets of criteria for cell reselection based
on the absolute priorities. However, criteria set 2 is used for inter-frequency scenarios, not for
inter-RAT scenarios, and SIB19 does not carry the absolute priorities of UMTS inter-frequencies
by Huawei products. Therefore, criteria set 2 is not supported by Huawei products.
Criteria sets 1, 3, 4, and 5 apply to UMTS-to-LTE reselection. Criteria sets 1 and 3 use the
reference signal received power (RSRP) as the measurement quantity, while criteria sets 4 and
5 use the Reference Signal Received quality (RSRQ) as the measurement quantity. For a
description of each criteria set, see Table 3-1.
The RSRQSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO or
MOD UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO command controls whether the UE performs cell
reselection based on the RSRQ of the LTE frequency. When RSRQSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to TRUE and the UE supports the RSRQ-based measurement, the
UE performs cell reselection based on the RSRQ. Otherwise, the UE performs cell reselection
based on the RSRP.

The following are details about the parameters referenced in Table 3-1:

Threshhigh is the relative threshold for the target cell's RX level to EQrxlevmin
(BSC6900,BSC6910) when the absolute priority of the target frequency is higher than the
absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell. The ThdToHigh(BSC6900,BSC6910)
parameter specifies the value of Threshhigh. The greater the value of this parameter, the
less likely reselection is to occur.

Threshlow is the relative threshold for the target cell's RX level to EQrxlevmin
(BSC6900,BSC6910) when the absolute priority of the target frequency is lower than the
absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell. The ThdToLow(BSC6900,BSC6910)
parameter specifies the value of Threshlow. The greater the value of this parameter, the less
likely reselection is to occur.

Description

3 Cell Reselection Between UMTS and LTE

EQrxlevmin(BSC6900,BSC6910) is the minimum required RX level of the cell on the


target frequency.

Treselection is the reselection delay. The Treselections(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter


specifies the value of Treselection.

Threshserving,low is the threshold for the serving cell's RSCP during reselection to an LTE
cell working at an LTE frequency with a lower absolute priority. The ThdServingLow
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter specifies the value of Threshserving,low. When the LTE
frequencies of lower absolute priorities are being measured, if the signal quality of the
serving UMTS cell constantly remains below Threshserving,low and the signal quality of a
cell at theLTE frequency satisfies the formula SrxlevnonServingCell > Threshlow, the UE
triggers reselection to the cell. The greater the value of this parameter, the more likely cell
reselection based on absolute priorities is to occur.

Threshhigh2 is the relative threshold for the target cell's signal quality to EQrxlevmin
(BSC6900,BSC6910) when the absolute priority of the target frequency is higher than the
absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell. The ThdToHighRSRQ(BSC6900,BSC6910)
parameter specifies the value of Threshhigh2. The greater the value of this parameter, the
less likely reselection is to occur.

EQrxlevmin(BSC6900,BSC6910) is the minimum signal quality of a cell using the target


frequency.

Threshlow2 is the relative threshold for the target cell's signal quality to EQrxlevmin
(BSC6900,BSC6910) when the absolute priority of the target frequency is lower than the
absolute priority of the serving UMTS cell. The ThdToLowRSRQ(BSC6900,BSC6910)
parameter specifies the value of Threshlow2. The greater the value of this parameter, the
less likely reselection is to occur.

Threshserving,low2 is the CPICH Ec/N0 threshold for the serving UMTS cell when the UE
reselects a cell working on a lower-priority LTE frequency. The ThdServingLow2
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter specifies the value of Threshserving,low2. After the cell
reselection measurement starts, if the signal quality of the serving cell remains lower than
this parameter value and the signal quality of the target cell using a lower-priority frequency
remains high during the cell reselection delay time specified by Treselections
(BSC6900,BSC6910), the UE will perform cell reselection.

To summarize:
l

If the criteria in criteria set 1 or 4 are fulfilled, the UE performs reselection to a cell working
at an LTE frequency with a higher absolute priority.

If the criteria in criteria set 3 or 5 are fulfilled, the UE performs reselection to a cell working
at an LTE frequency with a lower absolute priority.

If the criteria in neither group are fulfilled, the UE remains on the UMTS network.

If multiple cells fulfill a set of criteria, the UE performs reselection to the cell with the greatest
SrxlevnonServingCell value.
The following parameters are set by running the ADD UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO or MOD
UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO command:

3.4 UMTS-to-LTE Quick Cell Reselection


A UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE camping on the UMTS network can initiate UMTS-to-LTE cell
reselection only when it is in the CELL_PCH or idle state. In RAN14.0 and earlier versions,
state transition to the CELL_PCH or idle state is slow because the state transition is triggered
only when the UE does not transmit or receive service data during the time length of an inactivity
timer.
The inactivity timer can be:

PsInactTmrForCon(BSC6900,BSC6910) (conversational services), PsInactTmrForStr


(BSC6900,BSC6910) (streaming services), PsInactTmrForInt(BSC6900,BSC6910)
(interactive services), or PsInactTmrForBac(BSC6900,BSC6910) (background services)
for UEs that are not enabled with enhanced fast dormancy

PsInactTmrForFstDrmDch(BSC6900,BSC6910) for UEs that are enabled with enhanced


fast dormancy and in the CELL_DCH state

PsInactTmrForFstDrmFach(BSC6900,BSC6910) for UEs that are enabled with


enhanced fast dormancy and in the CELL_FACH state

To accelerate the UMTS-to-LTE cell reselection, you need to enable the UMTS-to-LTE quick
cell reselection function by running the SET URRCTRLSWITCH command with
FAST_RETURN_LTE_BY_CELL_SELECT_SWITCH under PROCESSSWITCH4
(BSC6900,BSC6910) set to ON. The details of this function are as follows:

State transition to the CELL_PCH or idle state is triggered when the UE does not transmit

3.5 UMTS-to-LTE Fast Return


3.5.1 Overview
This section describes the WRFD-140226 Fast Return from UMTS to LTE feature.
In an area jointly covered by UMTS and LTE networks, a UE accesses a UMTS cell due to
CSFB. When the UE finishes all services in the UMTS cell, it releases the RRC connection. In
versions earlier than RAN14.0, if the absolute priority of a neighboring LTE cell's frequency is
higher than that of the UMTS cell's frequency, the RRC CONNECTION RELEASE message
does not contain the frequency information about neighboring LTE cells. As a result, the UE
camps on a UMTS cell.
If a neighboring LTE cell fulfills the cell reselection conditions, the UE reselects the neighboring
LTE cell. Before the reselection, the UE must receive system information MIB, SIB1, SIB3,

SIB5, SIB7, or SIB19 and determine which criteria set listed in Table 3-1 will be used. As a
result, the time for the UE to return from the UMTS network to the LTE network is long.
The Fast Return from UMTS to LTE feature is introduced to reduce the time and improve user
experience.
This feature applies to the areas that are jointly covered by UMTS and LTE networks and where
the LTE network signal quality is satisfactory.
If the LTE network signal quality is poor, for example, when an RRC CONNECTION
RELEASE message contains information about n (a positive integer) LTE frequencies whose
signal quality is poor:
l

UEs complying with a version earlier than 3GPP Release 10 select a suitable LTE cell from
the LTE cells using n LTE frequencies. The selection lasts for at most 10 seconds. If no
suitable LTE cell is found, these UEs select a suitable LTE cell from the LTE cells using
frequencies supported by these UEs. If a suitable LTE cell is still not found, these UEs
randomly camp on a suitable cell. For details, see section 8.5.2 Actions when entering idle
mode from connected mode in 3GPP TS 25.331 V10.8.0.

UEs complying with 3GPP Release 10 or later select a suitable LTE cell from the LTE cells
using n LTE frequencies. The selection lasts for at most n seconds. If no suitable LTE cell
is found, these UEs select a suitable LTE cell from the LTE cells using frequencies
supported by these UEs. The selection lasts for 4 seconds. If a suitable LTE cell is still not
found, these UEs randomly camp on a suitable cell. For details, see section 8.5.2 Actions
when entering idle mode from connected mode in 3GPP TS 25.331 V10.9.0.

Note that the UE cannot process CS or PS services or CS+PS combined services while searching
for a suitable LTE cell.
A UMTS-to-LTE fast return may not be performed in the following scenario: A UE that has
performed a CSFB process moves to another RNC and the target RNC becomes the SRNC. In
this case, the target RNC does not know whether the UE has performed a CSFB process, because
certain information cannot be transmitted between RNCs. Hence, the SRNC instructs the UE to
perform a UMTS-to-LTE fast return only if an End Of CSFB indication is carried in the IU
RELEASE COMMAND message sent by the MSC when the CS service is released. If the MSC
is not able to carry an End Of CSFB indication in the IU RELEASE COMMAND message, a
UMTS-to-LTE fast return will not be performed in this scenario.
The Fast Return from UMTS to LTE feature enables a UE that moves from an LTE cell to a
UMTS cell through CSFB to quickly return to the LTE network after the CS service or all services
are finished.
This feature incorporates the following functions:

UMTS-to-LTE Fast Return function.

3.5.2 UMTS-to-LTE Fast Return


At the cell level, this function is controlled by the
HO_UMTS_TO_LTE_FAST_RETURN_SWITCH under the FastReturnToLTESwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the MOD UCELLHOCOMM command.
At the RNC level, this function is controlled by the
HO_UMTS_TO_LTE_FAST_RETURN_SWITCH under the HoSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH command. When this
function is configured at both the RNC and cell levels, the cell-level configuration takes effect.
This function works as follows:
1.

The RNC first determines that a UMTS/LTE UE is a CSFB UE if the UE meets either of
the following conditions:
l When the UE is moving from an LTE cell to a UMTS cell through a PS handover, the
RELOCATION REQUEST message contains a "cause" information element (IE)
whose value is "CS Fallback triggered (268)" or a "CSFB Information" IE whose value
is "CSFB" or "CSFB High Priority."
l When the UE is moving from an LTE cell to a UMTS cell through a redirection, the
RRC CONNECTION REQUEST message does not contain the "Pre-redirection info"
IE. (For details, see section 8.1.3.3 "RRC CONNECTION REQUEST message contents
to set" in 3GPP TS 25.331 V9.4.0.) The first service that the UE processes after
accessing the UMTS cell is a CS service.

2.

After the UE is identified as a CSFB UE and the UE finishes all services in the UMTS cell,
the RNC triggers the RRC connection release procedure.

3.

The RNC includes the information about the neighboring LTE cells whose frequencies
have higher absolute priorities than the frequency of the UMTS cell in an RRC
CONNECTION RELEASE message. Upon receiving the message, the UE selects a target
cell based on the information and attempts to camp on this cell. (For details about suitable
LTE cell selection, see section 8.5.2 Actions when entering idle mode from connected mode
in 3GPP TS 25.331 V9.4.0. For details about a suitable LTE cell, see section 4 Overall

The method for selecting frequencies that are to be included in an RRC CONNECTION

Select the initial frequency set.


Set A contains all LTE frequencies whose absolute priorities are higher than the absolute
priority of the serving UMTS cell.
l The NPriority(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD

specifies the absolute priorities of the LTE frequencies.
l The SPriority(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD UCELLSELRESEL or
MOD UCELLSELRESEL command specifies the absolute priority of the serving
UMTS cell.

2.

Filter the initial frequency set.


Set B contains all LTE frequencies supported by the UE in set A.
When set B contains multiple LTE frequencies, select a maximum of four LTE FDD
frequencies and a maximum of four LTE TDD frequencies based on absolute priorities.
However, according to the 3GPP protocol, certain information cannot be transmitted
between RNCs, including the EARFCNs for neighboring E-UTRAN cells. Therefore, the

inter-RNC cell reselection, the source RNC still serves as the SRNC after the UE has moved
from the source RNC to the target RNC.
To enable frequency selection in the preceding scenario, the following mechanism is
introduced: When HO_UMTS_TO_LTE_FAST_RETURN_SWITCH under the
HoSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SRNC MML command SET
UCORRMALGOSWITCH is set to ON and
HO_IUR_U2L_FAST_RETURN_SWITCH under the HoSwitch1 parameter in the SRNC
MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH is set to 1, the RRC CONNECTION
RELEASE message sent by the SRNC carries EARFCNs for all neighboring E-UTRAN
cells of the UMTS cell under the target RNC. If
HO_UMTS_TO_LTE_FAST_RETURN_SWITCH is set to OFF or
RESERVED_SWITCH_4_BIT15 is set to 0, the RRC CONNECTION RELEASE
message sent by the SRNC does not carry the EARFCNs.
The neighboring E-UTRAN cells and their EARFCNs need to be configured for the UMTS
cell under the target RNC through the following operations:
l Configure EARFCNs for neighboring E-UTRAN cells by setting the LTEArfcn
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter using the ADD ULTECELL command.
l Configure neighboring E-UTRAN cells using the ADD ULTENCELL command.
The SRNC selects and delivers a maximum of four EAFCNs for FDD cells and a maximum
of four EAFCNs for TDD cells from the EARFCNs of neighboring E-UTRAN cells for the
UMTS cell under the target RNC.
If some LTE cells are configured as blacklisted cells using the ADD
UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO command and
PERFENH_U2L_REDIR_WITH_BLACK_CELL_SWITCH under the
PerfEnhanceSwitch3(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA
command is set to ON, the RRC CONNECTION RELEASE message contains not only an
LTE frequency but also those blacklisted cells working in the LTE frequency so that UEs
cannot be handed over to the blacklisted cells based on fast return. If no LTE cells are
configured as blacklisted cells or
PERFENH_U2L_REDIR_WITH_BLACK_CELL_SWITCH is set to OFF, the RRC
CONNECTION RELEASE message does not contain blacklisted cells working in the LTE
frequency.

PS Redirections and Handovers Between


UMTS and LTE

4.1 Overview
This chapter describes PS directions and handovers from UMTS to LTE and from LTE to UMTS.

4.2 LTE-to-UMTS PS Redirections and Handovers


When a UE processing a PS service on the LTE network moves out of the LTE coverage area
or the LTE signal quality falls below a specific threshold, a PS redirection or handover is
performed to shift the UE to the UMTS network. The choice between a PS redirection and a PS
handover depends on the UE capability.
LTE-to-UMTS PS handovers or redirections are performed mainly by the LTE network. For
details, see LTE document Idle Mode Management Feature Parameter Description.
If certain UL/LTE multi-mode UEs do not support UMTS network measurements when in
connected mode, the LTE network needs to support LTE-to-UMTS blind redirections or blind
handovers.
NOTE

Most PS services involved in LTE-to-UMTS handovers are high-speed HSPA services. Currently, during
handover preparations, if a PS service is not admitted to a UMTS cell, the PS service cannot use an R99
channel for an admission retry. When radio resources in the UMTS cell are congested, more handover
preparations may fail.

To obtain the success rate of LTE-to-UMTS handovers, new UMTS counters are added for
measuring LTE-to-UMTS PS handovers, as listed in the following table.

The success rate of LTE-to-UMTS handover preparations and success rate of LTE-to-UMTS
handovers are calculated using the following formulas:
l

Success rate of LTE-to-UMTS handover preparations = VS.L2U.SuccRelocPrepInPS/


VS.L2U.AttRelocPrepInPS

Success rate of LTE-to-UMTS handovers = VS.L2U.SuccRelocInPS/


VS.L2U.SuccRelocPrepInPS

As subscribed to PS services of high data rates, an LTE UE is prone to fail in admission after
being handed over to UMTS, especially when the handover is performed based on coverage. In
this case, call drops increase. A mechanism is introduced to decrease the PS service rate during
inter-RAT PS handovers so that the success rate of PS handovers will be increased. The
implementation is as follows:
When a PS service is handed over from an LTE cell to a UMTS cell:
l

If a BE PS service fails to be admitted with the original rate, the UE re-attempts the
admission after being switched from an HSPA channel to an R99 channel. If the UE still
fails to be admitted, the UE re-attempts the admission by decreasing its data rate to the
GBR. If the admission attempt fails, the UE continues to attempt admissions by further
decreasing its data rate until it succeeds. The data rate can be decreased to 0 kbit/s.

If a streaming PS service fails to be admitted with the original rate, the UE re-attempts the
admission after being switched from the HSPA channel to the R99 channel. If the UE still
fails to be admitted, the UE re-attempts the admission with its rate decreased to the GBR.

This function can be enabled using the cell-level switch. The cell-level switch is set to on by
selecting PERFENH_SYSHO_IN_FAIL_RETRY_SWITCH under the
CellConnAlgoSwitch1(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD
UCELLCONNALGOPARA command.
This function is recommended in heavily loaded cells to improve the success rate of inter-RAT
incoming PS handovers.

4 PS Redirections and Handovers Between UMTS and LTE
Description

Redirections can be classified into non-neighboring-cell-based redirection and


neighboring-cell-based redirection according to whether neighboring LTE cell
configuration are required. Redirections can also be classified into blind redirection and
measurement-based redirection according to whether the UE supports the measurement of
LTE cell signal quality. In the following sections, a UE measuring the signal quality of the
LTE cell is referred to as the LTE measurement.
The differences between the non-neighboring-cell-based redirection and neighboring-cellbased redirection are as follows:
Non-neighboring-cell-based redirection: The target redirection frequency is obtained
from the LTE frequencies configured by the
ADD
UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO command.
NOTE

When
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the
HoSwitch1
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the
SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH command is selected, the
UE performs a non-neighboring-cell-based redirection.
When no neighboring LTE cells are configured, you are advised to
select
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH. When this switch is turned on
and neighboring LTE cells are configured, the non-neighboring-cell-based redirection is preferred.

Neighboring-cell-based redirection: The target redirection frequency is obtained from the


neighboring LTE cell frequencies as indicated by the
LTEArfcn
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter configured by the
ADD ULTENCELL
or
MOD ULTENCELL command.

During a UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, the RNC sends a handover request to the LTE
network through the core network (CN). When the LTE network finishes preparing
resources, the UE and the PS service are handed over to the LTE network.

Compared with UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection has the following


advantages and disadvantages:
l

Advantages: UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection has no special requirements for the CN and


does not require the UE to support handovers. When the UE does not support LTE
measurements and the blind redirection switch is turned on, the UE can redirect to an LTE
network based on blind redirection.
NOTE

The blind redirection switch can be turned on only when LTE coverage is favorable. Otherwise, call drops
may occur. To turn on the blind redirection switch, set the
U2lBlindRedirSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the
ADD UCELLHOCOMM or
MOD
UCELLHOCOMM command to
ON.

Disadvantages: PS services are interrupted for a long time.

UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections and handovers are classified into the following types in terms of
trigger causes:

blind redirection, or handover. For details, see section 4.3.2.5 Decision and Execution.

Application Scenarios
In a UMTS+LTE network, this feature shifts UEs from UMTS to LTE through a redirection or
handover if the LTE signal quality is better than the UMTS signal quality.

4.3.2.2 Triggering
Upon receiving an event 2D or 1F measurement report from a UE, the RNC determines whether
to allow a coverage-based PS redirection or handover from UMTS to LTE.

4.3.2.3 UE Redirections or Handovers to LTE


The RNC allows a UE to be redirected or handed over to LTE when all the following conditions
are met:
1.

There are no CS RABs among the UE's RABs.

2.

All PS RABs for the UE can be shifted to LTE through a handover or redirection.
An RAB can be shifted to LTE through a handover or redirection only when the IE EUTRAN Service Handover in the RAB Assignment Request message is not set to
"Handover to E-UTRAN shall not be performed" and
HO_TO_EUTRAN_SHOULD_BE_PERFORM under the EUTRANSHIND
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD UTYPRABBASIC command is selected.

3.

The UE supports both UMTS and LTE.

4.

An LTE network is available.


The RNC uses the following methods to determine whether the LTE network is available:
l If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the
HoSwitch1(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH
command is selected, the LTE network is available when an LTE frequency is
configured.
l If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is not selected, the
LTE network is available when a neighboring LTE cell is configured.

5.

Switches related to coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE interoperability have been turned on.

The general switch for UMTS-to-LTE PS interoperability is turned on. This switch is
configured by HO_LTE_PS_OUT_SWITCH under the HoSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter.

Condition a (for coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections) or condition b (for coveragebased UMTS-to-LTE handovers) is met.

4.3.2.4 Measurements
Overview
When event 2D is triggered and the UE supports measurements on the neighboring LTE cells,
neighboring GSM cells, or inter-frequency neighboring cells, the RNC determines the target
networks for measurements, sends the measurement control message to the UE, and then
processes the measurement results. The target networks include the LTE network, GSM network,
and inter-frequency network. If the LTE measurement is required, the RNC sends the message
control messages to the UE and then processes the measurement results. For details, see the
descriptions about the measurement control message and measurement result processing in
section "Measurement Control Message" and "Measurement Result Processing."
When event 1F is triggered, the RNC does not start measurements. Instead, it determines whether
to shift the UE to the LTE network through a blind redirection or to a GSM network or interfrequency network through a blind handover. For details about whether the RNC shifts the UE
to the LTE network through a blind redirection, see section 4.4.5 "Decision and Execution." For
details about whether the RNC shifts the UE to the GSM network or inter-frequency network
through a blind handover, see Handover Feature Parameter Description. In this section, the
RNC determines whether the UE performs measurements on LTE. U2LTEMeasTime
(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies the LTE measurement duration by the UE.
The measurement control message sent by the RNC contains the following LTE-specific
information:
l

Reporting mode of measurement reports


A UE can periodically report measurement reports or in event-triggered reporting mode.
LTEReportMode(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies which reporting mode is used. For a
coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover, the measurement reports can
be periodically reported or in event-3A-triggered mode. The LTEPeriodReportInterval
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter specifies the interval at which the measurement reports
are reported.

Information about to-be-measured neighboring cells or frequencies. For details, see the
description about the measurement control message in this section.

Measurement quantity
The LTE-specific measurement quantities include RSRP and RSRQ. LTEMeasQuanOf3A
(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies which measurement quantity is used.

Parameters related to the event. For details, see the description about measurement result
processing in this section.

Description

Event 2D/2F
Events 2D and 2F are defined as follows:
l

When the measurement quantity is less than the threshold for event 2D, the UE reports
event 2D to the RNC to request a measurement.

When the measurement quantity exceeds the threshold for event 2F, the UE reports event
2F to the RNC to stop the measurement.

For a coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE redirection or handover, the RNC selects the parameters
related to the threshold for event 2D and the threshold for event 2F as follows.
l

If UMTS cells on a network use the same frequency and coexist with GSM or LTE cells,
the RNC selects GSM or LTE cells' parameters related to the threshold for event 2D and
the threshold for event 2F.

If UMTS cells on a network use different frequencies and coexist with GSM or LTE cells:
The RNC selects inter-frequency UMTS cells' parameters related to the threshold for
event 2D and the threshold for event 2F when the CoexistMeasThdChoice parameter
in the ADD UCELLHOCOMM or SET UHOCOMM command is set to
COEXIST_MEAS_THD_CHOICE_INTERFREQ.
The RNC selects GSM or LTE cells' parameters related to the threshold for event 2D
and the threshold for event 2F when CoexistMeasThdChoice is set to
COEXIST_MEAS_THD_CHOICE_INTERRA.

For details about events 2D and 2F, see sections about triggering of events 2D and 2F in
Handover Feature Parameter Description for RAN.

Measurement Control Message


If multiple target networks need to be measured, the RNC sends the UE multiple measurement
control messages specific for the target networks. For details about the measurement control
messages specific for the inter-frequency neighboring cells or inter-RAT neighboring cells, see
Handover Feature Parameter Description.
The method for selecting LTE frequencies in the measurement control message during a
coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover is the same as that during a servicebased UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover. For details, see the description about the
measurement control message in section "Measurement Control Message."

Measurement Result Processing


Event-triggered Reporting Mode
After receiving the measurement control message, the UE starts the measurement. If the UE
reports the measurement report in event-3A-triggered mode, the UE reports the event 3A
measurement report when the trigger conditions for event 3A are met and the duration of event
3A reaches TrigTime3A(BSC6900,BSC6910).
Trigger conditions for event 3A satisfy the following formula:
QUsed <= TUsed - H3a/2 and MOtherRAT >= TOtherRAT + H3a/2

Description

QUsed is the signal quality of the frequency in use.

TUsed is the absolute threshold for the signal quality of the current cell, which can be
specified by UsedFreqThdRSCP(BSC6900,BSC6910) or UsedFreqThdEcNo
(BSC6900,BSC6910).

MOtherRAT is the measurement value after LTE measurement result filtering.


U2LTEFilterCoef(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies the filtering coefficient for LTE
measurement result filtering.

TOtherRAT is the threshold for the LTE signal quality when a redirection or handover to
LTE occurs. The parameter TargetRatThdRSRP(BSC6900,BSC6910) or
TargetRatThdRSRQ(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies the threshold. The
TargetRatThdRSRP(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter specifies the RSRP-based threshold
and TargetRatThdRSRQ(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies the RSRQ-based threshold.
If LTEMeasQuanOf3A(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to RSRP, event 3A is reported
when the RSRP-based measurement value after LTE measurement result filtering of
the LTE cell has been greater than or equal to the sum of TargetRatThdRSRP
(BSC6900,BSC6910) and H3a/2 for a period of time longer than TrigTime3A
(BSC6900,BSC6910).
If LTEMeasQuanOf3A(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to RSRQ, event 3A is reported
when the RSRQ-based measurement value after LTE measurement result filtering of
the LTE cell has been greater than or equal to the sum of TargetRatThdRSRQ
(BSC6900,BSC6910) and H3a/2 for a period of time longer thanTrigTime3A
(BSC6900,BSC6910).
TrigTime3A(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies the event 3A triggering delay.

H3a is the event 3A hysteresis and can be configured by setting the Hystfor3A
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter.

Periodic Reporting Mode


After receiving the measurement control message, the UE starts the measurement. If the UE
periodically reports the measurement report, the RNC determines whether the RSRP and RSRQ
of the target LTE cell meet the conditions for UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers after
receiving the periodic measurement reports specific for neighboring LTE cells. If the conditions
are met, the RNC enables the UE to perform a redirection or handover from UMTS to LTE.
Conditions for UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers satisfy the following formula:
MOtherRAT TOtherRAT + HystforPeriodLTE/2
l

MOtherRAT is the measurement value after LTE measurement result filtering.


NOTE

The measurement quantity includes the RSRP and RSRQ. If the UE simultaneously reports the
measurement reports on RSRP and RSRQ, both measurement results must satisfy the preceding formula
before a redirection or handover from UMTS to LTE.

TOtherRAT is the threshold for the LTE signal quality when a redirection or handover to
LTE occurs. Its value is consistent with the value of the variable TOtherRAT as described
in the formula of the event-triggered reporting mode.

HystforPeriodLTE(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies the hysteresis for periodically reporting


the LTE signal quality.

If the RNC receives the measurement report on the inter-RAT neighboring cell or inter-frequency
neighboring cell first, it determines whether to perform a handover to the GSM network or inter-frequency
network. For details about the handover to the GSM network or inter-frequency network, see the section
Coverage or QoS Handover in Handover Feature Parameter Description.

The preceding parameters can be either RNC-level parameters or cell-level parameters. The
RNC-level parameters are set by running the SET UU2LTEHOCOV command, and the celllevel parameters are set by running the ADD UCELLU2LTEHOCOV command. However,
the cell-level parameters prevail.

Description

If the coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned off, the RNC does
not perform a coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover.
When HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is not selected,
proceed to the next step:
If the UE supports UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers, the SuppPSHOFlag
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter for the target LTE cell is set to Support, and the
coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover switch is turned on, the RNC performs a
coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover. The target cell for handover is the cell
with the best signal quality.
If the UE does not support UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers, the SuppPSHOFlag
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter for the target LTE cell is set to NotSupport, or the
coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover switch is turned off, determine whether
the coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned on.
If the coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned on, the RNC
performs a coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection based on the neighboring
LTE cell. The frequency for redirection is the frequency for the target cell.
If the coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned off, the RNC does
not perform a coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover.
l

If event 2D is triggered and the UE does not support LTE measurement, the RNC does not
perform a coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection, blind redirection, or handover.

Event 1F is triggered.
When both the UMTS-to-LTE blind redirection switch and coverage-based UMTS-toLTE PS redirection switch are turned on, proceed to the next step:
If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is selected, the RNC
performs a non-neighboring-cell-based blind redirection.
If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is not selected,
proceed to the next step:
If blind neighboring LTE cells are configured, the RNC performs a neighboring-cellbased blind redirection.
If no blind neighboring LTE cell is configured, the RNC does not perform a coveragebased UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover.
If the UMTS-to-LTE blind redirection switch or coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS
redirection switch is turned off, the RNC does not perform a coverage-based UMTSto-LTE PS redirection or handover.
NOTE

To turn on the blind redirection switch, set the U2lBlindRedirSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in


the ADD UCELLHOCOMM or MOD UCELLHOCOMM command to ON.
During a blind redirection, the same rule is used to select the frequencies carried in the RRC Connection
Release message and the frequencies carried in the measurement-based redirection measurement control
message. For details, see the description about the measurement control message in section "Measurement
Control Message."

If BlindFlag(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to TRUE, the neighboring LTE cell configured by


running the ADD ULTENCELL command can serve as a neighboring cell for blind
redirections.

cells

l If the PERFENH_IRAT_COV_HO_NCELL_PRE_SWITCH
check box under the PerfEnhanceSwitch2 parameter is not selected,
the RNC selects the neighboring GSM cell with the best signal

For a coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, the RNC selects the


neighboring LTE cell with the best signal quality.
For a coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection, the RNC selects a
target cell as follows:
l If the PERFENH_IRAT_COV_HO_NCELL_PRE_SWITCH
check box under the PerfEnhanceSwitch2(BSC6900,BSC6910)

Application Scenarios
Service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers or redirections are mainly used in the following
situations:
l

A UE that has fallen back to the UMTS network by using CSFB is still processing PS
services when the UE's voice services are complete.

A UE only initiates a PS service on the UMTS network in a UMTS/LTE overlapping


coverage area.

A UE only initiates a PS service on the UMTS only network and then moves to an area
under the LTE coverage.

It is recommended that this feature be enabled in areas with continuous LTE coverage.

4.3.3.2 Triggering
The RNC determines whether to allow a service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or
handover when any of the following conditions is met:
l

The RNC receives a Radio Bearer Setup Complete, Radio Bearer Reconfiguration
Complete (except for D2F and D2P), or Radio Bearer Release Complete message from the
UE.

The RNC receives an Iu Release message from the CS domain.

The inter-frequency hard handover is complete.

The best cell changes, which means event 1D is reported.


When event 1D is reported, the BestCellTrigLTEMeasSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910)
parameter in the ADD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV, MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV, or
SET UU2LTEHONCOV command must be set to ON.

4.3.3.3 UE Redirections or Handovers to LTE


The RNC allows a UE to be redirected or handed over to LTE when all the following conditions
are met:
1.

There are no CS RABs among the UE's RABs.

2.

All PS RABs for the UE can be shifted to LTE through a handover or redirection.
An RAB can be shifted to LTE through a handover or redirection only when the IE EUTRAN Service Handover in the RAB Assignment Request message is not set to

Condition a (for service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections) or condition b (for servicebased UMTS-to-LTE handovers) is met.
Condition a: The service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned on and
service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections are controlled by
HO_LTE_SERVICE_PS_OUT_SWITCH under the HoSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter.
Condition b: The service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover switch is turned on and
service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers are controlled by
HO_LTE_SERVICE_PSHO_OUT_SWITCH under the HoSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter.
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is not selected.

If the service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirection or handover occurs due to the best cell

4.3.3.4 Measurements on LTE Signal Quality


Overview
If a UE in connected mode supports LTE measurements, the RNC triggers LTE measurements.
If the UE does not support LTE measurement, the RNC enables the UE to directly perform blind
redirection. For details, see section 4.3.3.5 Decision and Execution.
The measurement control message sent by the RNC contains the following LTE-specific
information:
l

Reporting mode of measurement reports


A UE can periodically report measurement reports or in event-triggered reporting mode.
LTEReportMode(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies which reporting mode is used. When a

Power (RSRP) or Reference Signal Received Quality (RSRQ).

Parameters related to the event. For details, see the description about measurement result

(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies the LTE measurement duration by the UE.

Measurement Control Message


The procedure for selecting the frequencies carried in the measurement control message is as
follows:
1.

Select the initial frequency set.


l If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is selected, set A
contains all LTE frequencies, as indicated by EARFCN(BSC6900,BSC6910) and
configured by the ADD UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO command.
l If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is not selected, set
A contains the LTE frequencies for all neighboring LTE cells, as indicated by LTEArfcn
(BSC6900,BSC6910) and configured by the ADD ULTECELL command.
When an LTE cell is configured by the ADD ULTECELL command, LTEArfcn
(BSC6900,BSC6910) specifies the frequencies for the neighboring LTE cells.

2.

Filter the initial frequency set.


Set B contains all LTE frequencies supported by the UE in set A.
l When the InterPlmnHoAllowedInterRat(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET
UOPERATORSHARINGMODE command is set to OFF, the RNC filters the
frequencies not supporting redirections from set B based on SupCnOpGrpIndex
(BSC6900,BSC6910) and CnOpGrpIndex(BSC6900,BSC6910). Set C is obtained.
l When the InterPlmnHoAllowedInterRat(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set to
ON, no action is required. In this case, set C equals set B.

3.

Filter frequencies based on the load of neighboring LTE cells.


l When HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the
HoSwitch1(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH
command is not selected, the RNC filters frequencies according to the following rules:
If both INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FROM_LTE_SWITCH under the
ProcessSwitch5(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter and
SERVICE_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH under the U2LLTELoadSwitch
parameter are set to ON, the RNC filters the frequencies of congested cells (an LTE
frequency is filtered only when all LTE cells working at this frequency are congested).
Then, set D is obtained.
If either of the preceding parameters is set to OFF, the RNC does not filter frequencies
based on the LTE cell load. In this case, set D equals set C.

l When HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the


HoSwitch1(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH
command is selected, the RNC does not filter frequencies based on the LTE cell load
and therefore set D equals set C.
If set D contains multiple frequencies, the RNC selects a maximum number of four LTE
FDD frequencies and a maximum number of four LTE TDD frequencies based on the
absolute priorities of LTE frequencies, which are to be contained in the measurement
control message delivered by the RNC.
If set D is empty, the RNC does not deliver any measurement control message.
The NPriority(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD
UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO command specifies the absolute priorities of LTE
frequencies.

Measurement Result Processing


Event 3C is triggered when the LTE signal quality satisfies the following formula. After
receiving the event 3C measurement report, the UE performs a redirection or handover.
MOtherRAT TOtherRAT + H3c/2
Where,
l

MOtherRAT is the measurement value after LTE measurement result filtering.


U2LTEFilterCoef(BSC6900,BSC6910) is the filter coefficient for the measurement
results. A larger value for this parameter results in a greater smoothing effect and higher
anti-fading capabilities, but also lower capabilities for tracking signal fluctuations. A
smaller value for this parameter results in more unnecessary handovers.

TOtherRAT is the threshold that the LTE signal must reach before a redirection or handover
to the LTE network can be performed. The TargetRatThdRSRP(BSC6900,BSC6910) or
TargetRatThdRSRQ(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter specifies the TOtherRAT value. The
TargetRatThdRSRP(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is the RSRP threshold, and the
TargetRatThdRSRQ(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is the RSRQ parameter.
If the LTEMeasQuanOf3C(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set to RSRP, event 3C
is reported when the RSRP-based measurement value after LTE measurement result
filtering of the LTE cell has remained greater than or equal to the sum of
TargetRatThdRSRP(BSC6900,BSC6910) and H3c/2 for a period of time longer than
TrigTime3C(BSC6900,BSC6910).
If the LTEMeasQuanOf3C(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set to RSRQ, event 3C
is reported when the RSRQ-based measurement value after LTE measurement result
filtering of the LTE cell has remained greater than or equal to the sum of
TargetRatThdRSRQ(BSC6900,BSC6910) and H3c/2 for a period of time longer than
TrigTime3C(BSC6900,BSC6910).
The TrigTime3C(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is the hysteresis for the UE triggering
event 3C. The value of this parameter is related to slow fading. A larger value for this
parameter results in a lower possibility of handovers and unnecessary handovers and a
stronger resistance to instantaneous signal fluctuations. An excessively large value for
this parameter results in a higher possibility of call drops.

H3c is the hysteresis for reporting event 3C, and it is configured by the Hystfor3C
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter. The value of this parameter is related to slow fading. A

larger value for this parameter results in stronger resistance to signal fluctuations. This
curbs the ping-pong effect but slows the handover algorithm's response to signal
fluctuations.
These parameters can be configured at the RNC or cell level with the SET UU2LTEHONCOV
command or the ADD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command, respectively. If these parameters
are configured at both RNC and cell levels, cell-level settings override RNC-level settings.

Description

If the UE supports LTE measurement:


When HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is selected,
proceed to the next step:
If the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned on, the RNC
performs a non-neighboring-cell measurement-based redirection. The frequency of the
best cell in the measurement report is carried in the RRC Connection Release message.
If the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned off, the RNC does
not perform a service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover.
When HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is not selected,
proceed to the next step:
If both INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FROM_LTE_SWITCH under the
ProcessSwitch5 parameter and SERVICE_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH
under the U2LLTELoadSwitch parameter are set to ON, the RNC filters the congested
cells from the target cell set. If all neighboring LTE cells are congested, the RNC does
not perform service-based UMTS-to-LTE handovers or redirections. If any of the
neighboring LTE cells is not congested after the filtering, the RNC proceeds with the
following judgement. If either of the preceding parameters is set to OFF, the RNC does
not filter target cells based on the LTE cell load but proceeds with the following
judgement.
If the UE supports UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers and the SuppPSHOFlag
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter for the target LTE cell is set to Support, the RNC
performs a service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover. The target cell for handover is
the best cell after the preceding filtering is complete.
If the UE does not support UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers, the SuppPSHOFlag
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter for the target LTE cell is set to NotSupport, or the
service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover switch is turned off, determine whether the
service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned on.
If the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned on, the RNC
performs a neighboring-cell measurement-based redirection. The redirection frequency
refers to the frequency of the best cell after the preceding filtering is complete.
If the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection switch is turned off, the UE does not
perform a service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover.

If the UEdoes not support LTE measurement:


When both the UMTS-to-LTE blind redirection switch and service-based UMTS-toLTE PS redirection switch are turned on, proceed to the next step:
If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is selected, the RNC
performs a non-neighboring-cell-based blind redirection.
If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is not selected,
proceed to the next step:
If blind neighboring LTE cells are configured, the RNC performs operations as follows:
If both INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FROM_LTE_SWITCH under the
ProcessSwitch5 parameter and SERVICE_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH
under the U2LLTELoadSwitch parameter are set to ON, the RNC filters congested
blind neighboring LTE cells. If all blind neighboring LTE cells are congested, the RNC
does not perform a service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover. If any
blind neighboring LTE cell is not congested, the RNC performs a blind redirection based
on neighboring cells.

Description

If either of the preceding parameters is set to OFF, the RNC does not filter target cells
based on the LTE cell load but directly performs a blind redirection based on
neighboring cells.
If no blind neighboring LTE cell is configured, the RNC does not perform a servicebased UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover.
If the UMTS-to-LTE blind redirection switch or the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS
redirection switch is turned off, the RNC does not perform a service-based UMTS-toLTE PS redirection or handover.
NOTE

To turn on the blind redirection switch, set the U2lBlindRedirSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in


the ADD UCELLHOCOMM or MOD UCELLHOCOMM command to ON.
During a blind redirection, the same rule is used to select the frequencies carried in the RRC Connection
Release message and the frequencies carried in the measurement-based redirection measurement control
message. For details, see the description about the measurement control message in section "Measurement
Control Message."
If BlindFlag(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to TRUE, the neighboring LTE cell configured by running the
ADD ULTENCELL command can serve as a neighboring cell for blind redirections.

Service-based UMTS-to-LTE Interoperation Procedure


Figure 4-5 shows the procedure for a UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection.
Figure 4-5 UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection

As shown in Figure 4-5, the primary steps in the UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection procedure are

Figure 4-6 shows the procedure for a UMTS-to-LTE PS handover.
Figure 4-6 UMTS-to-LTE PS handover

As shown in Figure 4-6, the primary steps in the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover procedure are as
follows:
Step 1 The RNC sends the serving GPRS support node (SGSN) on the UMTS core network a Relocation
Required message, which contains information about the target LTE cell.
Step 2 The SGSN on the UMTS core network forwards the Relocation Request message to the mobility
management entity (MME) on the LTE core network. The MME initiates a handover to the LTE
network.
Step 3 After preparations for the handover are complete on the LTE network, the MME informs the
SGSN by sending a Relocation Response message.
Step 4 Upon receiving the Relocation Command message from the SGSN, the RNC instructs the UE
to hand over to the target LTE network.

4.3.3.6 Anti-ping-pong Measures


Measures to Prevent Ping-Pong Handovers or Redirections Between UMTS and
LTE
To prevent ping-pong handovers between UMTS and LTE, when U2LPunishSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) in the SET UU2LTEHONCOV command is set to ON, the RNC
determines whether the RRC CONNECTION REQUEST message from a UMTS/LTE multimode UE carries the IE Pre-redirection info before determining whether to perform a servicebased UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection, blind redirection, or handover.
l

If the RRC CONNECTION REQUEST message carries the IE Pre-redirection info, the
UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE is not redirected from LTE to UMTS and the RNC does not
process the message.

If the RRC CONNECTION REQUEST message does not carry the IE Pre-redirection info,
the UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE redirects from LTE to UMTS. In this case, the RNC takes
the following measures to prevent ping-pong handovers:
If the UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE is not performing a CS service, the RNC starts a
penalty timer. The UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE cannot initiate a redirection, blind
redirection, or handover to LTE before the timer expires.
When the penalty timer expires, the RNC stops the timer and allows a redirection, blind
redirection, or handover to LTE.
If the UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE initiates a CS service before the penalty timer expires,
the RNC stops the penalty timer.
If the UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE is performing a CS service, the RNC does not start
the penalty timer. The RNC determines whether the requirements for the UMTS-toLTE redirection, blind redirection, or handover are met after the CS service is
terminated. If yes, the RNC allows a UMTS-to-LTE redirection, blind redirection, or
handover.

The U2LPunishTimer(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter specifies the duration for the penalty


timer.
When an incoming PS handover from LTE or GSM occurs, the RNC also takes the anti-pingpong measures.
When an incoming PS handover from LTE or GSM occurs, the RNC also takes the anti-pingpong measures.
When a UE in the CELL_PCH state initiates a CS service while processing a PS service, the
RNC first instructs the UE to perform a CELL_PCH-to-CELL_DCH (P2D) state transition for
the PS service and then processes the CS service setup request of the UE. If the UE triggers a
service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirection or handover during the P2D state transition and CS
service setup, the UE will fall back to the UMTS network through the CSFB feature. To prevent
such ping-pong movements, turn off the
PERFENH_CS_P2D_TRIG_SERVICE_U2L_SWITCH( under the PerfEnhanceSwitch2
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA command. When this switch is
turned off, UEs are prohibited from performing UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers if they
have initiated PS-specific P2D state transitions due to CS services.
When a UE not subscribing to LTE services initiates a service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirection
or handover, the UE will fall back to the UMTS network because it cannot access the LTE

network. To prevent this issue, turn on the


PERFENH_PERMIT_U2L_ONLY_UE_FROM_L_SWITCH under the
PerfEnhanceSwitch2 parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA command. When this switch is
turned on, only UEs that were handed over or redirected from the LTE network to the UMTS
network can perform service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers. It is recommended
that the SGSN send the RAB ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message, which carries information
about whether a UE has subscribed to LTE services, to the RNC so that UEs not subscribing to
LTE services cannot be handed over to or reselect LTE cells.

Measures to Prevent Continual Entering and Exiting of the Compressed Mode


During a service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirection or handover, LTE signal quality measurement
will be started after RB reconfiguration is complete. Before LTE signal quality measurement is
started, the UE enters the compressed mode. If RB reconfiguration is frequently triggered, the
UE must continually enter and exit the compressed mode, consequently affecting RNC
performance. To prevent ping-pong entering and exiting of the compressed mode, turn off the
RESERVED_SWITCH_6_BIT13 under the RsvSwitch6(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in
the SET UALGORSVPARA command.
During a service/load/coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE redirection or handover, the RNC starts a
penalty timer if no suitable LTE cell is found after LTE signal quality measurement is complete.
Before the penalty timer expires, the UE is prohibited from performing measurement again for
another service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirection or handover. The length of the penalty timer
is determined by the U2lServMcTimeOutPunishTime(BSC6910,BSC6900) parameter in the
SET UU2LTEHONCOV command.

4.3.4 Load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS Redirections and Handovers


This section describes the features WRFD-150216 Load Based PS Redirection from UMTS to
LTE and WRFD-150217 Load Based PS Handover from UMTS to LTE.

4.3.4.1 Overview
Architecture
If the LDR action of UMTS-to-LTE PS handover is triggered when the UMTS cell is in the basic
congestion state, the RNC enables UL or GUL multi-mode UEs carrying only PS services to be
redirected or handed over to LTE to facilitate inter-RAT load balancing and improve user
experience. For details about the trigger conditions of basic congestion and LDR actions, see
the section Load Reshuffling in Load Control Feature Parameter Description.

4.3.4.2 Triggering
When the UMTS cells are in the basic congestion state and an LDR action of UMTS-to-LTE
PS handover is triggered, the RNC determines whether the UE can be shifted to LTE through a
redirection or handover.

4.3.4.3 UE Redirections or Handovers to LTE


The RNC allows a UE to be redirected or handed over to LTE when all the following conditions
are met:
1.

There are no CS RABs among the UE's RABs.

2.

All PS RABs for the UE can be shifted to LTE through a handover or redirection.
An RAB can be shifted to LTE through a handover or redirection only when the IE EUTRAN Service Handover in the RAB Assignment Request message is not set to
"Handover to E-UTRAN shall not be performed" and
HO_TO_EUTRAN_SHOULD_BE_PERFORM under the EUTRANSHIND
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD UTYPRABBASIC command is selected.

3.

The UE supports both UMTS and LTE.

4.

An LTE network is available.


The RNC uses the following methods to determine whether the LTE network is available:
l If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the
HoSwitch1(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH
command is selected, the LTE network is available when an LTE frequency is
configured.
l If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH is not selected, the
LTE network is available when a neighboring LTE cell is configured.

5.

Switches related to load-based UMTS-to-LTE interoperability have been turned on.


l The general switch for UMTS-to-LTE PS interoperability is turned on. This switch is
configured by HO_LTE_PS_OUT_SWITCH under the HoSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter.
l The LDR action of UMTS-to-LTE PS handover is enabled.
These switches can be turned on by running the command ADD UCELLLDR or MOD
UCELLLDR.
l Either of the following is true:
The HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH check box under the HoSwitch1
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is selected.The
HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_HO_SWITCH check box under the HoSwitch1
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is selected but the
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH check box under this
parameter is not selected.

4.3.4.4 UE Selection for LDR


If a redirection or handover to LTE is allowed, the RNC selects UEs for LDR. If the LDR action
of UMTS-to-LTE PS handover is triggered by basic congestion, the RNC selects a UE in the
following procedure:

Step 1 Collect UL or GUL multi-mode UEs carrying only PS services in a UE list.


Step 2 Select UEs from the list that have not performed LDR-triggered UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers.
Step 3 Sort selected UEs by increasing comprehensive priority. Select N UEs for LDR actions.
----End
N is configured by UlPSU2LHOUeNum(BSC6900,BSC6910) in the uplink and
DlPSU2LHOUeNum(BSC6900,BSC6910) in the downlink.
UEs with the same comprehensive priorities are randomly selected for LDR actions. This section
assumes that there are five UEs: A, B, C, D, and E. UE A has the lowest priority, UE E has the
highest priority, and UEs B, C, and D have the same priority. If three of these UEs are selected
for LDR actions, the RNC selects UE A and then randomly selects two from UEs B, C, and D.
For details about comprehensive priorities, see Load Control Feature Parameter Description.

4.3.4.5 Measurements
If a UE in connected mode supports LTE measurements, the RNC triggers LTE measurements.
Otherwise, the RNC enables the UE to directly perform blind redirection. For details, see section
4.3.4.6 Decision and Execution.
If the RNC determines that the UE performs an LTE measurement, it sends the UE a
measurement control message instructing the UE to measure the signal quality of the LTE cells
according to the LTE frequencies contained in the message. This procedure is the same in the
load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections or handovers and service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS
redirections or handovers (For details, see the descriptions about the measurement control
message and measurement result processing in section 4.3.3.4 Measurements on LTE Signal
Quality.), except that a different method is used by load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections
or handovers for filtering frequencies based on the load of neighboring LTE cells in the third
step of the procedure. Load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections or handovers use the following
method of filtering frequencies based on the load of neighboring LTE cells:
When HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the HoSwitch1
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH command is not
selected, the RNC filters frequencies according to the following rules:
If both INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FROM_LTE_SWITCH under the ProcessSwitch5
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter and LOAD_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH under the
U2LLTELoadSwitch parameter are set to ON, the RNC filters the frequencies of congested cells
(an LTE frequency is filtered only when all LTE cells working at this frequency are congested).
Then, set D is obtained.
When HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the HoSwitch1
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH command is selected,
the RNC does not filter frequencies based on the LTE cell load and therefore set D equals set
C.
If set D contains multiple frequencies, the RNC selects a maximum number of four LTE FDD
frequencies and a maximum number of four LTE TDD frequencies based on the absolute
priorities of LTE frequencies.

the target cell set. If all neighboring LTE cells are congested, the RNC does not perform
load-based UMTS-to-LTE handovers or redirections. If any of the neighboring LTE
cells is not congested after the filtering, the RNC proceeds with the following
judgement. If either of the preceding parameters is set to OFF, the RNC does not filter
target cells based on the LTE cell load but proceeds with the following judgement.
If the UE supports UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, the SuppPSHOFlag
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter of the target cell is set to Support, and
HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_HO_SWITCH is selected, then the RNC performs a load-based
UMTS-to-LTE PS handover. The target cell for handover is the cell with the best signal
quality after the preceding filtering is complete.
If the UE does not support UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, the SuppPSHOFlag
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter of the target cell is set to NotSupport, or the loadbased UMTS-to-LTE PS handover switch is turned off, then the RNC determines
whether HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH is selected.
If HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH is selected, the RNC performs a
neighboring-cell measurement-based redirection. The target cell for redirection is the
cell with the best signal quality after the preceding filtering is complete.
If HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH is not selected, the RNC does not

4.4 Measures to Prevent Frequent Retries After a UMTS-toLTE PS Handover Failure


If no penalty measure is taken after a U2L PS handover fails, the UE frequently attempts to be
handed over to the neighboring LTE cell, which will decrease the handover success rate. In
addition, messages are exchanged over the air interface frequently, increasing the call drop rate
of UMTS services. To prevent frequent handover attempts after a failed U2L PS handover, the
RNC introduces the following penalty measures:
l

Penalty of on a single LTE cell: When a UE fails to be handed over to an LTE cell, the
RNC starts a 30s penalty timer and prohibits the UE from initiating handovers to the same
LTE cell before the timer expires.

Penalty of on all LTE cells:


If U2LPhyChFailNum(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to 0, the UE is prohibited from
initiating handovers to the same LTE cell within the 30s timer after a UMTS-to-LTE
handover fails.
If the value of U2LPhyChFailNum(BSC6900,BSC6910) is greater than 0, a timer
specified by PenaltyTimeForPhyChFail(BSC6900,BSC6910) is started when a UE
fails to perform U2L PS handovers for a consecutive number of times specified by
U2LPhyChFailNum(BSC6900,BSC6910), with the cause value being "Phy Channel
Failure." Within the timer, the UE is prohibited from initiating any handovers to any
neighboring LTE cell.

Parameters related to the penalty are as follows:

4.5 Measures to Prevent Ping-Pong Blind Redirections


Between UMTS and LTE
A blind redirection is required when a UE not supporting LTE signal quality measurement
attempts to perform a UMTS-to-LTE handover or redirection. During the blind redirection, if
LTE coverage does not exist, the UE has to wait for 15 to 20 seconds and then falls back to the
UMTS network. During the 15 to 20 seconds, the UE is out of service. After the UE falls back
to the UMTS network, the service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirection algorithm will trigger
another blind redirection. To prevent such blind redirections between UTMS and LTE, the RNC
performs the following steps:
1.

During a UMTS-to-LTE blind redirection, the RNC saves the UE's IMSI and RRC
connection release time after receiving an RRC CONNECTION RELEASE message from
the UE.

2.

When the UE initiates a phone call, the RNC receives a Common ID message from the CN.
If the blind redirection function is enabled, the RNC determines whether the UE has
performed a blind redirection within last 30 seconds based on the UE's IMSI included in
the Common ID message, the reception time of this message, and the previously mentioned
RRC connection release time.

3.

If the UE has performed a blind redirection within last 30 seconds, the RNC starts a penalty
timer for the blind redirection. Before the penalty timer expires, the RNC prohibits the UE
from performing UMTS-to-LTE blind redirections, regardless of whether these blind
redirections are triggered by services, loads, or event 1F. The length of the penalty timer
is determined by the U2LBlindRedirPingpongTimer(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in
the SET UHOCOMM command.

4.6 Data Forwarding During UMTS-to-LTE Handovers


4.6.1 Overview
Data forwarding during UMTS-to-LTE handovers is a procedure in which the RNC sends user
data to the eNodeB from the transport layer to ensure that no packets are lost during the
handovers. (For details about the data forwarding procedure, see section 8.4.1 "Handover
Preparation" in 3GPP TS 36.413 V11.4.0.) . To enable this procedure, turn on the
U2L_RELOC_MSG_TAKE_ERAB_SWITCH under the OptimizationSwitch5 parameter in
the SET URRCTRLSWITCH command.

4.6.2 How The Data Forwarding Procedure Flows


The data forwarding procedure flows in the following way:

1.

The RNC includes the "DL Forwarding" IE in a Source to Target Transparent Container
message and sends the message to the CN, which then forwards the message to the eNodeB.
For details about this IE, see section 9.2.3.14 "DL Forwarding" in 3GPP TS 36.413 V11.4.0.

2.

Upon receiving the Source to Target Transparent Container message, the eNodeB includes
the "DL GTP-TEID" and "DL Transport Layer Address" IEs in a HANDOVER REQUEST
ACKNOWLEDGE message, which is then sent to the CN. For details about this step, see
section 8.4.2 "Handover Resource Allocation" in 3GPP TS 36.413 V11.4.0.

3.

After receiving the HANDOVER REQUEST ACKNOWLEDGE message, the CN


includes the "DL GTP-TEID" and "DL Transport Layer Address" IEs in a RELOCATION
COMMAND message, which is then sent to the RNC.

4.

Upon receiving the RELOCATION COMMAND message, the RNC applies for a GTP-U
tunnel to forward user data to the eNodeB.

CSFB

5.1 Overview
When a UE on an LTE network initiates a CS service, the CSFB feature migrates the UE to a
UMTS network so that the UE can perform the CS service on the UMTS network.
As specified in the 3GPP protocol, an LTE-to-UMTS CSFB can be performed through either a
redirection or PS handover:
l

During an LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through a redirection, the eNodeB sends an RRC


CONNECTION RELEASE message carrying the UARFCN of a UMTS cell to the UE.
The UE accesses the UMTS cell based on the UARFCN and initiates a voice service again
in the UMTS cell.

During an LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through a PS handover, the RNC receives a PS handover


request and determines whether to reserve resources and admit the UE. If resources are
reserved and the UE is admitted successfully, the eNodeB sends a handover command to
the UE. After accessing the UMTS network, the UE initiates a voice service again on the
UMTS network.

The RRC setup success rate of LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through redirections can be calculated
using the following formula: VS.RRC.SuccConnEstab.CSFB/VS.RRC.AttConnEstab.CSFB
The RAB setup success rate of LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through redirections can be calculated
using the following formula: VS.RAB.SuccEstabCS.CSFB.Redir/
VS.RAB.AttEstabCS.CSFB.Redir
The RAB assignment success rate of LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through redirections can be
calculated using the following formula: VS.RAB.SuccEstabCS.CSFB.PSHO/
VS.RAB.AttEstabCS.CSFB.PSHO
For details about LTE-to-UMTS CSFB, see the LTE document CS Fallback Feature Parameter
Description.
From RAN16.0 onwards, Huawei introduces a proprietary CSFB process, Ultra-Flash CSFB.
This process is applicable when an IMS is not deployed and the eNodeB, MME, MSC, and RNC
are all provided by Huawei. This process prepares CS resources in advance based on an SRVCC
process, thereby reducing CSFB delay.

5.2 CS Fallback Guarantee for LTE Emergency Calls


This chapter describes the feature WRFD-140102 CS Fallback Guarantee for LTE Emergency
Calls.

5.2.1 Overview
For CSFB for an emergency call:
l

If the UE is to fall back to the UMTS network by using the LTE-to-UMTS PS redirection,
the LTE network will send an RRC connection release message to the UE and the UE reinitiates an emergency call on the UMTS network. CSFB should be successful once the
UE has accessed the UMTS network. The feature WRFD-021104 Emergency Call ensures
that emergency calls are granted access to the UMTS network before other call types.

If a UE is to fall back to the UMTS network by using the LTE-to-UMTS PS handover, the
RNC performs resource reservation and service admission for the PS service of the UE.
Then the eNodeB instructs the UE to perform an inter-RAT handover for UMTS network
access. After falling back to the UMTS network, the UE re-initiates an emergency call.
CSFB should be successful once resource reservation and service admission are successful
for the PS service on the RNC. The feature WRFD-140102 CS Fallback Guarantee for LTE
Emergency Calls ensures that resource reservation and service admission are successful
for PS services, by decreasing the PS service rate, performing resource preemption, or both.
NOTE

This document only describes resource reservation and service admission for PS services. For details about
implementation of the feature WRFD-021104 Emergency Call, see Load Control Feature Parameter
Description.

The HO_L2U_EMGCall_Switch field has been added to the HoSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910)


parameter in the SET UCORRMALGOSwitch command. The feature WRFD-140102 CS
Fallback Guarantee for LTE Emergency Calls is enabled when this switch is turned on.

5.2.2 Policy
If a UE is to fall back to the UMTS network by using the LTE-to-UMTS PS handover, the
eNodeB sends the MME a Handover Required message. This message carries a transparent
container, Source RNC to Target RNC Transparent Container, which contains an IE referred to
as CSFB Information. If this IE value is CSFB, it indicates a PS handover caused by CSFB for
a common CS service. If this IE value is CSFB High Priority, it indicates a PS handover caused
by CSFB for an emergency call.
The transparent container is forwarded by the CN to the destination RNC. When the destination
RNC receives CSFB Information whose value is CSFB High Priority, the RNC determines that
an incoming LTE-to-UMTS PS handover is caused by CSFB for an emergency call. In this case,
the RNC decreases the service rate or performs resource preemption for the PS service. The
specific policy is as follows:
l

For a BE PS service, such as a background or interactive service, the RNC attempts to admit
it based on the value of the NRTInitRateforL2U parameter in the MML command SET
UFRC. If the admission attempt fails, the RNC preempts the resources of low-priority
users.

of 8 kbit/s, whereas the downlink is carried on an HSDPA channel with an initial rate
not limited.
l

After the PS service admission succeeds, the PS service rate is gradually increased if there
are available resources in the UMTS network.

For details about service admission, see Call Admission Control Feature Parameter
Description. For details about resource preemption, see Load Control Feature Parameter
Description.
For a CSFB procedure during which a UE falls back to the UMTS network through an LTE-toUMTS PS handover, the CSFB delay can be reduced by increasing the bearing data rate on the
signaling radio bearer (SRB). The bearing data rate is set by CSFBSRBRate
(BSC6900,BSC6910) of the SET UFRC command.

5.3 CS Fallback Guarantee for LTE Common Calls


5.3.1 Overview
Huawei product provides a CSFB guarantee for LTE emergency calls and common calls. This
reduces admission failures and increases successful handovers for CS services.
To enable CSFB guarantee for LTE common calls, users need to set
PERFENH_L2U_CSFB_COMMCALL_SWITCH under PerfEnhanceSwitch
(BSC6900,BSC6910) to ON by running the SET UCORRMPARA command.

5.3.2 Policy
The RNC determines that an incoming LTE-to-UMTS PS handover is caused by CSFB for a
common call when either of the following conditions is met:
l

The cause value is CS Fallback triggered (268) in the Relocation Request message
received at the RNC.

The value of the IE "CSFB Information" is CSFB in the IE "Source RNC To Target RNC
Transparent Container" of the Relocation Request message.

In this case, the RNC decreases the service rate or performs resource preemption for the PS
service. The specific policy is as follows:
l

For a non-realtime PS service, the RNC attempts to admit it based on the value of the
NRTInitRateforL2U parameter in the MML command SET UFRC. If the admission
attempt fails, the RNC preempts the resources of low-priority users.

For a real-time PS service, the RNC attempts to admit it based on the GBR. If the admission
attempt fails, the RNC preempts the resources of a low-priority service for the real-time
PS service.

After the PS service admission succeeds, the PS service rate is gradually increased if there
are available resources in the UMTS network.

For details about service admission, see Call Admission Control Feature Parameter
Description. For details about resource preemption, see Load Control Feature Parameter
Description.
For a CSFB procedure during which a UE falls back to the UMTS network through an LTE-toUMTS PS handover, the CSFB delay can be reduced by increasing the bearing data rate on the
signaling radio bearer (SRB). The bearing data rate is set by CSFBSRBRate
(BSC6900,BSC6910) of the SET UFRC command.

5.4 CSFB Delay Reduction


Compared with a voice service involving only signaling in the UMTS system, a voice service
based on a CSFB process has a longer delay due to some additional signaling procedures such
as the LTE access and handover/redirection process. The CSFB delay affects user experience.
To reduce CSFB delay, Huawei introduces the following mechanism to the UMTS system:
l

When RESERVED_SWITCH_9_BIT9 under the RsvSwitch9(BSC6900,BSC6910)


parameter in the SET UALGORSVPARA command is set to ON and if a PS service is
set up before the CS service during the LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through PS service
redirection, the RNC identifies a service as a CS+PS combined service in advance and treats
the service accordingly during the intra-RAT DRD. Without the preceding mechanism, two
DRD processes are performed separately for the CS and PS services involved in the CSFB
process. With the preceding mechanism, only one DRD process is required for the CS+PS
combined service, which reduces the CSFB delay and improves user experience. This
switch is set to OFF by default.

When the DeferMcReadInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the ADD/MOD


UCELLMEAS command is set to TRUE, the RNC carries the Deferred measurement
control reading support IE in the SIB3. During the LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through
redirections, the UE does not read SIB 11 and SIB 11bis until it has accessed the network,
which quickens the access process and reduces the CSFB delay. This switch is set to
OFF by default.

During LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through redirections, the SRB rate is determined by the
CSFBSRBRate(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter.

When PERFENH_DCH_TRCH_OPT_SWITCH under PerfEnhanceSwitch3


(BSC6900,BSC6910) in the MML command SET UCORRMPARA is set to ON, the RNC

optimizes contents of the RB setup message during the LTE-to-UMTS CSFB through
redirecions or PS handovers, which quickens message transmission and reduces the CSFB
delay. This switch is turned off by default.
l

When PSHO_CSFB_CAP_ENQ_DELAY_SWITCH under the ImprovementSwitch


parameter in the MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH is selected, the RNC does
not query the UE capability until a 10s timer has expired or the CS RAB has been set up,
which reduces the CSFB delay and improves user experience. This switch is set to off by
default. After being handed over to a UMTS cell, the UE cannot be handed over or
redirected from the UMTS cell to an LTE cell until the RNC has obtained the UE capability
or a 10s timer has expired.

When CSFB_UE_DELAY_RAU_SWITCH under the ImprovementSwitch parameter in


the MML command CSFB_UE_DELAY_RAU_SWITCH is selected, the RNC does not
transfer a routing area update (RAU) request until the CS service has been set up or the
routing area update request transfer timer has expired during a CSFB process based on an
LTE-to-UMTS PS handover or redirection, which reduces the CSFB delay and improves
user experience. This switch is set to off by default. The routing area update request transfer
timer is specified by the CSFBUeDelayRAUTimer parameter in the MML command SET
USTATETIMER, whose default value is 5s. The VS.RAU.Req.CSFB.Delay.RNC
counter measures the number of times that the RNC forwards routing area update requests
from CSFB UEs to the CN at a delayed time.

When CSFB_UE_CS_IMEI_QUERY_DISABLE_SWITCH under the


ImprovementSwitch parameter in the MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH is
selected, the RNC does not query the IMEI of a UE that moves from an LTE cell to a UMTS
cell through CSFB through a PS handover or redirection, which reduces the CSFB delay
and improves user experience. This switch is set to off by default.

Step 1 through step 4: A UE in the LTE network initiates or receives a voice service request.
Therefore, the eNodeB initiates an LTE-to-UMTS handover of combined services through
SRVCC. Using a mechanism, the MME and MSC ensure the successful LTE-to-UMTS
handover.
Step 5: When ULTRA_FLASH_CSFB_SWITCH under the PROCESSSWITCH2
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH is selected,
the RNC identifies the Ultra-Flash CSFB process based on the CSFB information IE in the CS
domain's relocation request message that is sent as a response to the SRVCC-based handover
request. To ensure quick transfer of NAS messages during admission after the UE is handed
over to a UMTS cell, the SRB rate of the UE can be specified by the UltraFlashCSFBSRBRate
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the MML command SET UFRC.
Step 6: The CN sends a handover command to the eNodeB, and the eNodeB delivers the
handover command to the UE.
Step 7: The UE is handed over to a UMTS cell.
Step 8 through step 9: The RNC and UE implement the security mode and processes such as
UTRAN mobility information.

Step 14: The SRB rate is reconfigured to 3.4 kbit/s after the CS service is set up to save UMTS
resources.
The Ultra-Flash CSFB process in Figure 5-1 and Figure 5-2 do not contain the following
procedures:
l

Authentication

This procedure is not required because the UE has been authenticated on the LTE side before it
is handed over from an LTE cell to a UMTS cell.
l

Encryption

This procedure is not required after a CSFB because the UE has implemented encryption
according to the handover command during the SRVCC handover.
l

IMEI query

This procedure is not required after a handover is complete because the MME has sent the IMEI
to the MSC during the SRVCC handover preparation.
l

CS resource establishment

This procedure is not required after a handover is complete because CS resources have been
prepared on the UMTS side during the SRVCC procedure.

6 SRVCC from LTE to UMTS with PS Handover

6.1 Overview
The LTE network supports voice over IP (VoIP) services after the IP multimedia subsystem
(IMS) is deployed. When a UMTS/LTE multi-mode UE in the middle of a VoIP service on the
LTE network moves to the UMTS coverage area, the single radio voice call continuity (SRVCC)
feature works to hand over the VoIP service to the CS domain of the UMTS network. This feature
ensures voice service continuity.
When performing the VoIP service on the LTE network, the UE maintains a default PS
connection even if it is not performing PS services. This PS connection also needs to be handed
over to the UMTS network during the SRVCC from LTE to UMTS. Currently, the UE
performing the VoIP service on the LTE network supports the following types of LTE-to-UMTS
handovers:
l

CS only SRVCC handover, also known as SRVCC from LTE to UMTS without PS
handover
In a CS only SRVCC handover, the mobility management entity (MME) on the LTE
network suspends the PS service, hands over the VoIP service to the CS domain of the
UMTS network, and then setup the radio bearer for the PS service. On the UMTS RAN
side, the procedure for the CS only SRVCC handover is identical to that for an incoming
inter-RAT CS handover.

CS+PS SRVCC handover, also known as SRVCC from LTE to UMTS with PS handover
In a CS+PS SRVCC handover, the VoIP service is handed over to the CS domain of the
UMTS network, and the PS service is handed over to the PS domain of the UMTS network.
On the UMTS RAN side, the procedure for the CS+PS SRVCC handover is identical to
that for an incoming inter-RAT CS+PS handover.

This chapter mainly describes CS+PS SRVCC handover, which is new in RAN15.0. For details
about the PS handover and CS only SRVCC Handover, see section "Execution of Inter-RAT
Handovers" in the SRVCC Feature Parameter Description for eRAN.

6 SRVCC from LTE to UMTS with PS Handover

If the RNC receives a Handover Request message from both the CS and PS domains before
the timer expires, the RNC processes an incoming inter-RAT CS+PS handover.
After receiving the two Handover Request messages, the RNC determines whether to admit
the UE. To ensure that the CS service is preferentially admitted, the RNC may reduce the
original access rate of the PS service.
If the PS service is a real-time (RT) service, the RNC does not reduce the original access
rate of the RT service.
If the PS service is a non-real-time (NRT) service:
When NRTInitRateforL2U(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to OFF, the RNC does not
reduce the original access rate of the NRT service.
When NRTInitRateforL2U(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to DCH0K, DCH8K, or
DCH8KHSDPA, the RNC adjusts the access rate of the PS service to the specified
value.
The RNC admits the UE only when the resources are sufficient. The resources include
power resources, code resources, channel element (CE) resources, transport resources,
and so on. For details, see Call Admission Control Feature Parameter Description.
If an SRVCC process is triggered for an emergency call, the RNC allows the emergency
call to preempt resources from other services. The preemption policy is the same as that
for an emergency call within the UMTS system. For details about resource preemption
of emergency calls, see Load Control Feature Parameter Description.
NOTE

An AMR service for which an SRVCC process is triggered is regarded as an emergency call if
the value of L2USRVCCEmerCallARP is not 0 and the ARP value in the Relocation Request
for the AMR service equal to the value of L2USRVCCEmerCallARP.

If the RNC receives only one Handover Request message from the CS or PS domain before
the timer expires, the RNC rejects the handover request.
NOTE

The RelocAnotherTmr(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set in the SET USTATETIMER command.

To enable the SRVCC from LTE to UMTS with PS Handover feature, perform the following
operations:
l

For SRVCC-related configurations on the LTE side, see SRVCC Feature Parameter
Description for LTE.

On the UMTS side, deselect L2U_SRVCC_WITH_PS_HO_SWITCH under the


PROCESSSWITCH2(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET URRCTRLSWITCH
command.

7 RIM Based UMTS Target Cell Selection for LTE

7.1 Overview
In versions earlier than RAN15.0, UMTS and LTE cannot exchange load information even when
the two networks cover the same geographical area.
l

The eNodeB does not consider the load status of the target UMTS cell during a circuit
switched fallback (CSFB) to the UMTS network. If the target UMTS cell is congested, the
UE may fail to access the UMTS network.

The eNodeB does not consider the load status of the target UMTS cell during a load-based
handover from LTE to UMTS. This leads to handover preparation failures, increases the
signaling load, and may also increase the possibility that handovers are not performed in
time.

To address these problems, Huawei introduced the RIM Based UMTS Target Cell Selection for
LTE feature. This feature reports the load status of the target UMTS cells to the eNodeB through
the RAN information management (RIM) procedure during a CSFB or load-based handover
from LTE to UMTS. The eNodeB selects a target UMTS cell based on the load status received.
l

During a CSFB, the eNodeB preferentially selects a non-overloaded UMTS cell as the
target cell.

During a load-based handover from LTE to UMTS, the eNodeB preferentially selects a
UMTS cell that is neither congested nor overloaded as the target cell.

This selection process improves the success rate of preparations for handovers from LTE to
UMTS and prevents ping-pong handovers between UMTS and LTE.
For details about the CSFB feature, see CS Fallback Feature Parameter Description for eRAN.
For details about the load-based handover from LTE to UMTS, see MLB Feature Parameter
Description for eRAN.

7.2 RIM-based Reporting of UMTS Cell Load Status


7.2.1 RIM Procedure
In the RIM Based UMTS Target Cell Selection for LTE feature, the RIM procedure is used to
notify the eNodeB of the load status of target UMTS cells. The RIM messages can be exchanged
using the CN or Huawei eCoordinator depending on the setting of
RIM_ON_ECO_SWITCH under the PROCESSSWITCH5(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter
in the UTRAN. When RIM_ON_ECO_SWITCH is set to OFF, the RIM messages are
exchanged using the CN. When RIM_ON_ECO_SWITCH is set to ON and RIM_SWITCH
on the eCoordinator is set to ON, the RIM messages are exchanged using Huawei eCoordinator.
When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN, tThe RIM procedure involves the eNodeB,
MME, SGSN, and RNC. Figure 7-1 shows the RIM procedure between the UMTS and LTE
networks.

Description

7 RIM Based UMTS Target Cell Selection for LTE

NOTE

Huawei eCoordinator can be used to exchange RIM messages of the RIM procedure when the following
conditions are met:
l The eNodeB and RNC are both provided by Huawei and connected to the same eCoordinator.
l The CNs to which the eNodeB and RNC are connected do not support the RIM procedure or are not
enabled with the RIM procedure.
To exchange RIM messages using Huawei eCoordinator during the RIM procedure, the RIM procedure
must be enabled on all the involved NEs. Otherwise, these NEs will neither send nor receive any RIM
message to or from the CN.

The RIM procedure supports two information exchange modes: Single Report and Multiple
Report.
l

Single Report
In Single Report mode, the source sends a request, and then the target responds with a single
report. In this feature, the source is the eNodeB, and the target is the RNC.

Multiple Report
In Multiple Report mode, the target responds with a report upon receiving the initial request
from the source and sends a report to the source each time the load status changes.

During a CSFB or load-based handover from LTE to UMTS, the RIM procedure uses the
Multiple Report mode to report the load status of target UMTS cells.
For details about the RIM procedure, see section 8c Signalling procedures between RIM SAPs
in 3GPP TS 48.018 V11.3.0.

7.2.2 Reporting of UMTS Cell Load Status


Huawei RNC reports the load status of target UMTS cells to the eNodeB through the RIM
procedure in Multiple Report mode. The RIM procedure is enabled on the RNC side only when
INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FOR_LTE_SWITCH under the PROCESSSWITCH
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET URRCTRLSWITCH command is selected.
When RIM messages are exchanged using Huawei eCoordinator, RIM_ON_ECO_SWITCH
under the PROCESSSWITCH5(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter in the SET
URRCTRLSWITCH command is set to ON in the RNC and RIM_SWITCH is set to ON on
the eCoordinator.
The following describes the RIM procedure on the RNC side:
1.

The RNC receives a RAN Information Request message.


l The RNC determines whether to use the Multiple Report mode based on the value of
the PDU Type Extension IE in the RIM PDU Indications IE.
l The RNC checks whether the message requests the reporting of the load status of UMTS
cells based on the value of the RIM Application Identity IE. When the value is SON
Transfer, the RNC should report the load status of UMTS cells.

2.

The RNC reports the load status of UMTS cells to the eNodeB through the RAN
Information RIM message. The number of cell load states that can be reported is specified
by the LoadLevelForLTE(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter. When LoadLevelForLTE
(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to D3, three cell load states can be reported. The Overload Flag
IE in the message carries the load status information. The RNC sets this IE based on the
following rules:

WCDMA RAN
Interoperability Between UMTS and LTE Feature Parameter
Description

7 RIM Based UMTS Target Cell Selection for LTE

l When the UMTS cell is in normal state, the RAN InformationRIM message does not
carry the Overload Flag IE.
l When the UMTS cell is in Overload Control (OLC) state, the RNC sets the IE to
overload.
l When the UMTS cell is in load reshuffling (LDR) state, the value of the IE is congestion.
When LoadLevelForLTE(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to D4, four cell load states can
be reported. The Overload Flag IE in the message carries the load status information.
The RNC sets this IE based on the following rules:
l When the UMTS cell is in LightLoad state, the RIM message does not carry the
Overload Flag IE.
l When the UMTS cell is in MidLoad state, the RNC sets the IE to MidLoad.
l When the UMTS cell is in OLC state, the RNC sets the IE to overload.
l When the UMTS cell is in LDR state (which is in between the MidLoad and OLC states),
the RNC sets the IE to congestion.
LoadLevelForLTE is set to D3 by default. For versions earlier than eRAN7.0, this
parameter does not need to be set. For eRAN7.0 and later, if LTE-to-UMTS mobility
load balancing (MLB) for UEs in idle mode is enabled, this parameter must be set to
D4.
3.

When the load status of the UMTS cell changes, the RNC notifies the eNodeB of the new
load status through the RIM procedure.
NOTE

Huawei has extended the value range of the Overload Flag IE. According to 3GPP protocols, this IE has
only one value (overload). Huawei adds another two values (congestion and MidLoad) for the IE.

10.3 WRFD-020129 Service-Based PS Service Redirection


from UMTS to LTE
10.3.1 When to Use Service-Based PS Service Redirection from
UMTS to LTE
This feature is recommended in the scenario where UMTS and LTE are deployed together and
continuous LTE coverage is provided..
Before activating this feature, query the UE penetration rate and check whether the CN supports
this feature.
If the CN does not support the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, you are advised to enable only the
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection. If the UEs do not support measurement of LTE cells, you are
advised to enable the blind redirection. The UMTS-to-LTE handover function is recommended
only if the CN supports UMTS-to-LTE handovers and UEs support measurement of LTE cells.
If the CN supports the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, the following scenarios occur:
l

If few UEs support the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, you are advised to enable only the
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection.

If most UEs support the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, you are advised to enable both the
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection and handover. In this case, the UEs supporting handovers
will use the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover and the UEs not supporting handovers will use
the UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection.

If operators do not configure neighboring LTE cells, you are advised to enable the UMTSto-LTE PS redirection.
NOTE

To enable the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, you need to first configure the neighboring LTE cell.

If UEs preferentially camp on the UMTS network, the feature WRFD-020129 Service-Based
PS Service Redirection from UMTS to LTE or WRFD-140218 Service-Based PS Handover
from UMTS to LTE must be used. Otherwise, UEs can be shifted to the LTE network by the
following methods, which leads to an idle LTE network.
l

Cell reselection or coverage based PS redirection or handover from UMTS to LTE in weak
UMTS coverage areas.

Load based PS redirection or handover from UMTS to LTE when the UMTS cell is with
high load.

If the DC-HSDPA feature is enabled on the UMTS network, some DC-HSDPA UEs cannot
measure signal quality of LTE cells unless they fall back to the SC-HSDPA technology and
therefore they experience difficulty using this feature. The specific limitations imposed on these
problem UEs are as follows:
l

These problem UEs cannot perform LTE signal quality measurement when the
McHsdpaLteCMPermissionInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set to TRUE and the
EHSPACMPermissionInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) and HsdpaCMPermissionInd

(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameters are set to TRUE. In this case, these UEs cannot use this
feature.
l

These problem UEs can perform LTE signal quality measurement only after they fall back
to the SC-HSDPA technology if the McHsdpaLteCMPermissionInd
(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set to FALSE and the EHSPACMPermissionInd
(BSC6900,BSC6910) and HsdpaCMPermissionInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameters are
set to TRUE. In this case, these UEs can use this feature.

These problem UEs can perform LTE signal quality measurement only after they fall back
to the DCH if the McHsdpaLteCMPermissionInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set
to TRUE and the EHSPACMPermissionInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) or
HsdpaCMPermissionInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set to FALSE. In this case,
these UEs can use this feature. However, fallback will decrease UE throughput and increase
the probability that these UEs are redirected to the GSM network.

If the preceding functions are enabled, select RESERVED_SWITCH_1_BIT18 under the


RsvSwitch1(BSC6900,BSC6910) paramter in the RNC MML command SET
UALGORSVPARA to prevent an increase in the rate when UEs enter the compressed
mode during D2H, D2E, and HSPA+ periodic retry processes as well as the DRD process
that is triggered by these periodic retry processes.

Other NEs as well as network equipment and transmission devices from other vendors
The UE must support 3GPP Release 8 or later.
The CN must support UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections.
To support the cell load-based LTE cell selection function,
When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN, the MME and SGSN must support
the RIM procedure, through which LTE cell load information is transmitted.
When RIM messages are exchanged using Huawei eCoordinator, the eCoordinator must
be deployed, and the eNodeB and RNC must be connected to the same eCoordinator so
that the eNodeB, RNC, and eCoordinator support the RIM procedure, through which
LTE cell load information is transmitted.
The SGSN must send information about whether a UE has subscribed to LTE services
in the RAB ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message to the RNC. If the SGSN does not
support this function, UEs who have not subscribed to LTE services will be handed over
or redirected to LTE networks, causing service drops.

Precautions
In a GSM/UMTS/LTE hybrid network, you are not advised to set Inter-RAT PS Handover
Switch to ON. Otherwise, the RNC sends the GSM-specific measurement control message to
the UE first after this feature is enabled. As a result, the UE will be redirected or handed over
to GSM.
If load-based LTE-to-UMTS related features are deployed on the LTE network, ping-pong
handover or redirection may occur between UMTS and LTE. For details about load-based LTEto-UMTS related features deployed on the LTE network, see MLB Feature Parameter
Description.
To prevent ping-pong handovers and redirections between UMTS and LTE, it is recommended
that this feature and the function of selecting LTE cells based on LTE cell load be enabled.
To select LTE cells based on LTE cell load, the RNC needs to obtain LTE cell load information
from the eNodeB through the RIM procedure. The eNodeB is the receiving party of the first
RIM message, so the related feature on the LTE side must be enabled first. Otherwise, the
eNodeB cannot respond to the RNC with LTE cell load information, and the RIM procedure
will be terminated before it is complete. For the related feature on the LTE side, see Inter-RAT
Mobility Management in Connected Mode Feature Parameter Description for eRAN.
In high speed scenarios, such as high-speed railways, the best cell frequently changes and
measurements are frequently triggered. In this case, network performance deteriorates and the

call drop rate increases. Therefore, you are not advised to set Best Cell Change Triggered LTE
Measure Switch to ON.

Activation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Configure a neighboring LTE cell or LTE frequency based on the network plan.
l If the neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection is allowed, the LTE cell needs to be configured
as the neighboring LTE cell of the UMTS cell. The procedure is as follows:
1.

If an LTE cell has not been configured, run the RNC MML command ADD
ULTECELL to configure an LTE cell with LTE Cell Supporting PS HO Indicator set
to NotSupport(NotSupport).
NOTE

l You can run the MOD ULTECELL command instead of the ADD ULTECELL command in
sub-step 1 if an LTE cell has been configured.
l Set the CnOpGrpIndex parameter in the ADD ULTECELL command to the index of a group
that includes operators of LTE cells. If the group includes only operators of UMTS cells, the
UMTS-to-LTE handovers will fail.
l If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH in the LST
UCORRMALGOSWITCH command is not selected
(HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH-0), the RNC uses neighboringLTE-cell-based redirection. The service-, coverage-, and load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS
redirection or handover features share the
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH switch.

2.

If a neighboring LTE cell or blind neighboring LTE cell has not been configured, run the
RNC MML command ADD ULTENCELL to configure a neighboring LTE cell. To
configure a blind neighboring LTE cell, set Blind HO Neighboring Cell Flag to TRUE.
NOTE

You can run the MOD ULTENCELL command instead of the ADD ULTENCELL command in substep 2 if a neighboring LTE cell has been configured.

l (Optional) If a non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection is allowed, the LTE frequency


needs to be configured. The procedure is as follows: Run the RNC MML command ADD
UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO to add information about the priorities of frequencies for
neighboring LTE cells of the UMTS cell.
NOTE

Among the preceding two modes, the neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection is preferred. When
neighboring cells are not planned or no neighboring LTE cell is configured, the non-neighboring-LTEcell-based redirection is recommended, which can reduce the workload in deploying the network.

Step 2 Run the RNC MML command SET UU2LTEHONCOV. In this step, set the RNC-level
parameters related to measurements for the service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections. These
parameters are listed in Table 10-5. The RNC sends the parameter settings to the UE through a
measurement control message.
Step 3 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV to set parameters
related to measurements for the service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections for a specific cell.
These parameters are listed in Table 10-5.

10 Engineering Guidelines

NOTE

l You can run the MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command instead of the ADD
UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command in step 3 if the related parameters have been configured for the
cell.
l If the cell-level and RNC-level measurement-related parameters are both available, the cell-level
measurement-related parameters prevail. If the cell-level measurement-related parameters are
unavailable, the cell uses the RNC-level measurement-related parameters.

Step 4 Run the RNC MML command MOD UTYPRABBASIC to modify the basic information about
a typical RAB. In this step, set Service-Based Handover to LTE Allowed to
HO_TO_EUTRAN_SHOULD_BE_PERFORM to allow UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections or
blind redirections.
Step 5 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to enable service-based
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections or blind redirections. In this step, select
HO_LTE_PS_OUT_SWITCH and HO_LTE_SERVICE_PS_OUT_SWITCH under the
HandOver Switch parameter.
Step 6 (Optional) If a non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection is allowed, run the RNC MML
command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to enable the non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based
redirection. In this step, select HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH
under the HandOver Switch1 parameter.
Step 7 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command MOD UCELLHOCOMM to enable the blind
redirection to LTE for a specific cell. In this step, set U2L Blind Redirect Switch to ON.
NOTE

It is recommended that the UMTS-to-LTE blind redirection function be enabled when LTE and UMTS
cells provide overlapped coverage.
The service-, coverage-, and load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover features use the same
U2L Blind Redirect Switch parameter.

Step 8 (Optional) To support feature activation triggered by the changed best cell, run the RNC MML
command SET UU2LTEHONCOV (RNC level) or MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV (cell
level) with Best Cell Change Triggered LTE Measure Switch set to ON.
Step 9 Run the SET UU2LTEHONCOV command and set the U2L Penalty Timer parameter to 20
and the U2L Punish Switch parameter to ON to prevent UEs from initiating service-based
UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers immediately after finishing LTE-to-UMTS
redirections or handovers.
Step 10 ( Optional) Deselect PERFENH_RB_RECFG_TRIG_SERVICE_U2L_SWITCH under the
Performance Enhancement Switch 2 parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA command to
prevent continual entering and exiting of the compressed mode during service-based UMTS-toLTE redirections or handovers due to frequent RB reconfiguration. Note that after this step is
performed, service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers will not be triggered in time.
Step 11 (Optional) Set the Penalty Time for Service-based U2L Meas Expiry parameter in the SET
UU2LTEHONCOV command to 20 seconds to prevent continual entering and exiting of the
compressed mode during service/load/coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers
if no suitable LTE cell is found after LTE signal quality measurement is complete.
Step 12 (Optional) Select PERFENH_PERMIT_U2L_ONLY_UE_FROM_L_SWITCH under the
Performance Enhancement Switch 2 parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA command to
allow only UEs that were handed over or redirected from the LTE network to the UMTS network

to perform service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers. Note that after this step is
performed, the number of UEs allowed to perform service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or
handovers decreases.
Step 13 Deselect PERFENH_CS_P2D_TRIG_SERVICE_U2L_SWITCH under the Performance
Enhancement Switch 2 parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA command to prevent pingpong UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers that occur in PS-specific P2D state transitions
triggered by CS services.
Step 14 (Optional) If EHSPACMPermissionInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) or HsdpaCMPermissionInd
(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to FALSE, run the RNC MML command SET
UALGORSVPARA. In this step, select the RESERVED_SWITCH_1_BIT18 check box
under Reserved Switch 1.
Step 15 (Optional) If the DC-HSDPA feature is enabled, run the RNC MML command SET UCMCF.
In this step, set MC-HSDPA and CM Coexist Indicator to TRUE.
Step 16 (Optional) To enable the cell load-based LTE cell selection function, perform the following
operations:
1.

(Optional) When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN and the UMTS PLMN differs
from the LTE PLMN, run the RNC MML command LST UCNOPERATOR to query the
value of Cn Operator Index and configure a CN route for the UMTS-to-LTE RIM
procedure according to the query result. Then run the RNC MML command MOD
ULTECELL, with CN Operator Index for Routing in U2L RIM set to the queried index
of the local operator.

2.

Run the RNC MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH. In this step, select
INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FROM_LTE_SWITCH under the Process Control
Switch 5 parameter.

3.

(Optional) When RIM messages are exchanged using the eCoordinator:


l Run the RNC MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH. In this step, select
RIM_ON_ECO_SWITCH under the Process Control Switch 5 parameter.
l Run the MML command SET ECOMMONCTRL on the eCoordinator. In this step,
select RIM_SWITCH under the Process Control Switch parameter.

4.

Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLHOCOMM or MOD


UCELLHOCOMM. In this step, select
SERVICE_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH under the SW Consider LTE Load in
U2L Interoperation parameter.

Description

10 Engineering Guidelines

This feature can be batch activated using the CME. For detailed operations, see the following
section in the CME product documentation or online help: Managing the CME > CME
Guidelines > Enhanced Feature Management > Feature Operation and Maintenance

Activation Observation
After this feature is enabled, observe the values of the following counters:
l

VS.U2LTEHO.RRCRelease.Service
This counter provides the number of service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections for a
cell. If the value of this counter is not 0, the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection
algorithm takes effect.
After Best Cell Change Triggered LTE Measure Switch is set to ON, the value of this
counter increases. It indicates that the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection
algorithm triggered by the changed best cell takes effect.

VS.U2LTEHO.RRCRelease.Sevice.Blind
This counter provides the number of service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS blind redirections
for a cell. If the value of this counter is not 0, the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS blind
redirection algorithm takes effect.

Deactivation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to disable service-based
UMTS-LTE redirections and blind redirections. In this step, clear
HO_LTE_SERVICE_PS_OUT_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch parameter.
NOTE

The Service-Based PS Service Redirection from UMTS to LTE feature has been deactivated after you
perform step 1.

Step 2 (Optional) To disable the blind redirection function for a cell, run the RNC MML command
MOD UCELLHOCOMM with U2L Blind Redirect Switch set to OFF.
NOTE

The service-, coverage-, and load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover features use the same
U2L Blind Redirect Switch parameter.

Step 3 (Optional) Run the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH command to turn off the nonneighboring-cell frequency-based redirection switch. In this step, clear
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch1
parameter.
Step 4 (Optional) If this feature cannot be triggered by the changed best cell, run the RNC MML
command SET UU2LTEHONCOV (RNC level) or MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV (cell
level) with Best Cell Change Triggered LTE Measure Switch set to OFF.
Step 5 (Optional) To disable the cell load-based LTE cell selection function, run the RNC MML
command MOD UCELLHOCOMM with the
SERVICE_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH check box under the SW Consider LTE
Load in U2L Interoperation parameter cleared.

The eNodeB, MME, SGSN, and UE support UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers.
The UE supports 3GPP Release 8 or later. It also supports LTE measurements.
To support the cell load-based LTE cell selection function,
When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN, the MME and SGSN must support
the RIM procedure, through which LTE cell load information is transmitted.
When RIM messages are exchanged using Huawei eCoordinator, the eCoordinator must
be deployed and the eNodeB and RNC must be connected to the same eCoordinator so
that the eNodeB, RNC, and eCoordinator support the RIM procedure, through which
LTE cell load information is transmitted.
The SGSN must be able to send the RAB ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message, which
contains information about whether a UE has subscribed to LTE services, to the RNC.
If the SGSN does not support this function, UEs who have not subscribed to LTE
services will be handed over or redirected to LTE networks, causing service drops.
The neighboring LTE cell has been configured. For details about how to configure a
neighboring LTE cell, see BSC6900 UMTS Initial Configuration Guide or BSC6910

WCDMA RAN
Interoperability Between UMTS and LTE Feature Parameter
Description

10 Engineering Guidelines

Precautions
In a GSM/UMTS/LTE hybrid network, you are not advised to set Inter-RAT PS Handover
Switch to ON. Otherwise, the RNC sends the GSM-specific measurement control message to
the UE first after this feature is enabled. As a result, the UE will be redirected or handed over
to GSM.
If load-based LTE-to-UMTS related features are deployed on the LTE network, ping-pong
handover or redirection may occur between UMTS and LTE. For details about load-based LTEto-UMTS related features deployed on the LTE network, see MLB Feature Parameter
Description.
To prevent ping-pong handovers and redirections between UMTS and LTE, it is recommended
that this feature as well as the function of selecting LTE cells based on LTE cell load be enabled.
To select LTE cells based on LTE cell load, the RNC needs to obtain LTE cell load information
from the eNodeB through the RIM procedure. The eNodeB is the receiving party of the first
RIM message, so the related feature on the LTE side must be enabled first. Otherwise, the
eNodeB cannot respond to the RNC with LTE cell load information, and the RIM procedure
will be terminated before it is complete. For the related feature on the LTE side, see Inter-RAT
Mobility Management in Connected Mode Feature Parameter Description for eRAN.
In high speed scenarios, such as high-speed railways, the best cell frequently changes and
measurements are frequently triggered. In this case, network performance deteriorates and the
call drop rate increases. Therefore, you are not advised to set Best Cell Change Triggered LTE
Measure Switch to ON.

Activation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Run the RNC MML command ADD ULTECELL to add an LTE cell with LTE Cell
Supporting PS HO Indicator set to Support(Support).
NOTE

You can run the MOD ULTECELL command instead of the ADD ULTECELL command in step 1 if
an LTE cell has been configured.
Set the CnOpGrpIndex parameter in the ADD ULTECELL command to the index of a group that includes
operators of LTE cells. If the group includes only operators of UMTS cells, the UMTS-to-LTE handovers
will fail.

Step 2 (Optional) If a neighboring LTE cell has not been configured, run the RNC MML command
ADD ULTENCELL to configure a neighboring LTE cell.
Step 3 Run the RNC MML command SET UU2LTEHONCOV. In this step, set the RNC-level
parameters related to measurements for the service-based UMTS-to-LTE handovers. These
parameters are listed in Table 11-6. The RNC sends the parameter settings to the UE through a
measurement control message.
Step 4 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV to set parameters
related to measurements for the service-based UMTS-to-LTE handovers for a specific cell.
These parameters are listed in Table 11-6.

Issue Draft A (2014-01-20)

Description

10 Engineering Guidelines

NOTE

You can run the MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command instead of the ADD
UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command in step 4 if the related parameters have been configured for the cell.
If the cell-level and RNC-level measurement-related parameters are both available, the cell-level
measurement-related parameters prevail. If the cell-level measurement-related parameters are unavailable,
the cell uses the RNC-level measurement-related parameters.

Step 5 Run the RNC MML command MOD UTYPRABBASIC to modify the basic information about
a typical RAB. In this step, set Service-Based Handover to LTE Allowed to
HO_TO_EUTRAN_SHOULD_BE_PERFORM to allow UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers.
Step 6 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to enable service-based
UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers. In this step, select HO_LTE_PS_OUT_SWITCH and
HO_LTE_SERVICE_PSHO_OUT_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch parameter.
Step 7 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to turn off the nonneighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection switch. In this step, clear
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch1
parameter.
Step 8 (Optional) To support feature activation triggered by the changed best cell, run the RNC MML
command SET UU2LTEHONCOV (RNC level) or MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV (cell
level) with Best Cell Change Triggered LTE Measure Switch set to ON.
Step 9 Run the SET UU2LTEHONCOV command and set the U2L Penalty Timer parameter to 20
and the U2L Punish Switch parameter to ON to prevent UEs from initiating service-based
UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers immediately after finishing LTE-to-UMTS
redirections or handovers.
Step 10 ( Optional) Deselect PERFENH_RB_RECFG_TRIG_SERVICE_U2L_SWITCH under the
Performance Enhancement Switch 2 parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA command to
prevent continual entering and exiting of the compressed mode during service-based UMTS-toLTE redirections or handovers due to frequent RB reconfiguration. Note that after this step is
performed, service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers will not be triggered in time.
Step 11 (Optional) Set the Penalty Time for Service-based U2L Meas Expiry parameter in the SET
UU2LTEHONCOV command to 20 seconds to prevent continual entering and exiting of the
compressed mode during service/load/coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers
if no suitable LTE cell is found after LTE signal quality measurement is complete.
Step 12 (Optional) Select PERFENH_PERMIT_U2L_ONLY_UE_FROM_L_SWITCH under the
Performance Enhancement Switch 2 parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA command to
allow only UEs that were handed over or redirected from the LTE network to the UMTS network
to perform service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers. Note that after this step is
performed, the number of UEs allowed to perform service-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections or
handovers decreases.
Step 13 Deselect PERFENH_CS_P2D_TRIG_SERVICE_U2L_SWITCH under the Performance
Enhancement Switch 2 parameter in the SET UCORRMPARA command to prevent pingpong UMTS-to-LTE redirections or handovers that occur in PS-specific P2D state transitions
triggered by CS services.
Step 14 (Optional) If the EHSPACMPermissionInd(BSC6900,BSC6910) or HsdpaCMPermissionInd
(BSC6900,BSC6910) is set to FALSE, run the RNC MML command SET

Activation Observation
After this feature is enabled, observe the value of VS.U2LTEHO.AttRelocPrepOutPS.
VS.U2LTEHO.AttRelocPrepOutPS provides the number of service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS
handovers. If the value of this counter is not 0, this feature takes effect.
After Best Cell Change Triggered LTE Measure Switch is set to ON, the value of this counter
increases. It indicates that the service-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handover algorithm triggered by
the changed best cell takes effect.

Deactivation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 (Optional) If this feature cannot be triggered by the changed best cell, run the RNC MML
command SET UU2LTEHONCOV (RNC level) or MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV (cell
level) with Best Cell Change Triggered LTE Measure Switch set to OFF.
Step 2 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to disable service-based
UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers. In this step, select
HO_LTE_SERVICE_PSHO_OUT_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch parameter.
Step 3 (Optional) To disable the cell load-based LTE cell selection function, run the RNC MML
command MOD UCELLHOCOMM with the
SERVICE_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH check box under the SW Consider LTE
Load in U2L Interoperation parameter cleared.

If VS.U2LTEHO.FailOutPS.CfgUnSupp, VS.U2LTEHO.FailOutPS.PhyChFai, and


VS.U2LTEHO.FailRelocPrepOutPS.ReloUnSupp have large values, there is a possibility
that some types of UEs do not support UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers. In this case, modify
the parameter settings to use UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections in this cell.

If VS.U2LTEHO.FailOutPS.NoReply has a large value, raise the value of


TargetRatThdRSRP(BSC6900,BSC6910) or TargetRatThdRSRQ(BSC6900,BSC6910)
accordingly.

If VS.U2LTEHO.FailRelocPrepOutPS.NoResAvail and
VS.U2LTEHO.FailRelocPrepOutPS.TgtHighLoad have large values, the LTE network
traffic load is high. In this case, enable the cell load-based LTE cell selection function to
avoid unnecessary handover preparations, which helps ensure a high success rate for
UMTS-to-LTE PS handover preparations. Or you can take measures to lower the LTE
network traffic load to ensure a high success rate for UMTS-to-LTE PS handover
preparations.

10.5 WRFD-150219 Coverage Based PS Redirection from


UMTS to LTE
10.5.1 When to Use Coverage Based PS Redirection from UMTS to
LTE
This feature is recommended in scenarios where UMTS and LTE are deployed together and
UMTS coverage is weaker than LTE coverage. For example, you can deploy this feature in areas
where UMTS and LTE are deployed at one site and share sectors and the LTE band is lower
than the UMTS band.
You are advised to determine whether to enable the UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover
based on whether the CN supports this feature and UE capabilities when deploying this feature.
If the CN does not support the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, you are advised to enable only the
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection.
If the CN supports the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover:
l

If few UEs support the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, you are advised to enable only the
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection.

If most UEs support the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, you are advised to enable both the
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection and handover. In this case, the UEs supporting handovers
will use the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover and the UEs not supporting handovers will use
the UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection.

If operators do not configure neighboring LTE cells, you are advised to enable the UMTSto-LTE PS redirection.
NOTE

To enable the UMTS-to-LTE PS handover, you need to first configure the neighboring LTE cell.

10.5.2 Required Information


Before activating Coverage Based PS Redirection from UMTS to LTE, collect the following
information:
l

Information about areas where UMTS and LTE are deployed together and areas where
UMTS and LTE coverage overlaps

Information about UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs

Precautions
After the Coverage Based PS Redirection from UMTS to LTE feature is enabled and event 2D
is triggered, a UE not supporting LTE measurements in connected mode does not perform
coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections. In this case:
l

If a GSM network or inter-frequency UMTS network is deployed, the UE measures the


signal quality of the neighboring GSM cells or inter-frequency neighboring UMTS cells.

If no GSM network or inter-frequency UMTS network is deployed, the UE is not handed


over to the LTE network until event 1F is triggered.
Event 1F indicates that the UMTS signals are very weak and call drops may occur.
Therefore, The UE is shifted to the LTE network through a blind redirection. You are
advised to set the trigger threshold for event 1F the same as that for event 2D in the scenario
where no GSM and inter-frequency UMTS networks are deployed.

Activation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Configure a neighboring LTE cell or LTE frequency based on the network plan.
l If the neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection or blind redirection is allowed, you need to
configure an LTE cell as the neighboring cell of the UMTS cell. The procedure is as follows:
1.

(Optional) If an LTE cell has not been configured, run the RNC MML command ADD
ULTECELL to configure an LTE cell with LTE Cell Supporting PS HO Indicator set
to NotSupport(NotSupport).
NOTE

l You can run the MOD ULTECELL command instead of the ADD ULTECELL command in
sub-step 1 if an LTE cell has been configured.
l Set the CnOpGrpIndex parameter in the ADD ULTECELL command to the index of a group
that includes operators of LTE cells. If the group includes only operators of UMTS cells, UMTSto-LTE handovers will fail.
l If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH in the LST
UCORRMALGOSWITCH command is turned off
(HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH-0), the RNC uses neighboringLTE-cell-based redirections or blind redirections. The service-, coverage-, and load-based
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover features share the
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH switch.

2.

(Optional) If a neighboring LTE cell or blind neighboring LTE cell has not been configured,
run the RNC MML command ADD ULTENCELL to configure a neighboring LTE cell.
To configure a blind neighboring LTE cell, set Blind HO Neighboring Cell Flag to
TRUE.
NOTE

You can run the MOD ULTENCELL command instead of the ADD ULTENCELL command in substep 2 if a neighboring LTE cell has been configured.

l If non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection or blind redirection is allowed, you need to


configure the LTE frequency. The procedure is as follows: Run the RNC MML command
ADD UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO to add information about the priorities of frequencies
for neighboring LTE cells of the UMTS cell.
Step 2 Run the RNC MML command SET UU2LTEHOCOV. In this step, set the RNC-level
parameters related to measurements for the coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections. These

10 Engineering Guidelines

parameters are listed in Table 10-16. The RNC sends the parameter settings to the UE through
a measurement control message.
Step 3 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLU2LTEHOCOV to set parameters
related to measurements for the coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections for a specific cell.
These parameters are listed in Table 10-16.
NOTE

You can run the MOD UCELLU2LTEHOCOV command instead of the ADD
UCELLU2LTEHOCOV command in step 3 if the related parameters have been configured for the cell.
If the cell-level and RNC-level measurement-related parameters are both available, the cell-level
measurement-related parameters prevail. If the cell-level measurement-related parameters are unavailable,
the cell uses the RNC-level measurement-related parameters.

Step 4 Run the RNC MML command MOD UTYPRABBASIC to modify the basic information about
a typical RAB. In this step, set Service-Based Handover to LTE Allowed to
HO_TO_EUTRAN_SHOULD_BE_PERFORM to allow UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections or
blind redirections.
Step 5 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to enable coverage-based
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections or blind redirections. In this step, select
HO_LTE_PS_OUT_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch parameter and
HO_U2L_COV_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch1 parameter.
Step 6 (Optional) If a non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection is allowed, run the RNC MML
command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to turn on the non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based
redirection switch. In this step, select
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch1
parameter.
Step 7 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command MOD UCELLHOCOMM to enable the blind
redirection to LTE for a specific cell. In this step, U2L Blind Redirect Switch is set to ON.
----End
NOTE

The service-, coverage-, and load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover features use the same
U2L Blind Redirect Switch parameter.

For details about activation observation, see section 10.4.5 Performance Monitoring.

Deactivation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to disable coverage-based
UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections. In this step, clear
HO_U2L_COV_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch1 parameter.
NOTE

step 1.

Step 2 (Optional) To disable the blind redirection function for a cell, run the RNC MML command
MOD UCELLHOCOMM with U2L Blind Redirect Switch set to OFF.
NOTE

The eNodeB, MME, SGSN, and UE support UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers.
The UE supports 3GPP Release 8 or later. It also supports LTE measurements.
The SGSN can obtain subscription data of the UE from the HLR or HSS. If the UE does
not subscribe to LTE services, the SGSN must be able to inform the RNC that the UE
cannot be handed over to the LTE network. This information is sent through the EUTRAN Service Handover IE in the RAB Assignment Request message. If the SGSN
cannot send the E-UTRAN Service Handover IE, the operator must enable UMTS-toLTE PS handovers for all UMTS/LTE multimode UEs in the network.
The neighboring LTE cell has been configured. For details about how to configure a
neighboring LTE cell, see BSC6900 UMTS Initial Configuration Guide or BSC6910

Activation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Run the RNC MML command ADD ULTECELL to add an LTE cell with LTE Cell
Supporting PS HO Indicator set to Support(Support).
NOTE

You can run the MOD ULTECELL command instead of the ADD ULTECELL command in step 1 if
an LTE cell has been configured.
Set the CnOpGrpIndex parameter in the ADD ULTECELL command to the index of a group that includes
operators of LTE cells. If the group includes only operators of UMTS cells, UMTS-to-LTE handovers will
fail.

Step 2 (Optional) If a neighboring LTE cell has not been configured, run the RNC MML command
ADD ULTENCELL to configure a neighboring LTE cell.

Step 3 Run the RNC MML command SET UU2LTEHOCOV. In this step, set the RNC-level
parameters related to measurements for the coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers. These
parameters are listed in Table 10-20. The RNC sends the parameter settings to the UE through
a measurement control message.
Step 4 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLU2LTEHOCOV to set parameters
related to measurements for the coverage-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers for a specific cell.
These parameters are listed in Table 10-20.
NOTE

You can run the MOD UCELLU2LTEHOCOV command instead of the ADD
UCELLU2LTEHOCOV command in step 4 if the measurement-related parameters have been configured
for the cell.
If the cell-level and RNC-level measurement-related parameters are both available, the cell-level
measurement-related parameters prevail. If the cell-level measurement-related parameters are unavailable,
the cell uses the RNC-level measurement-related parameters.

Step 5 Run the RNC MML command MOD UTYPRABBASIC to modify the basic information about
a typical RAB. In this step, set Service-Based Handover to LTE Allowed to
HO_TO_EUTRAN_SHOULD_BE_PERFORM to allow UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers.
Step 6 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to enable coverage-based
UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers. In this step, select HO_LTE_PS_OUT_SWITCH under the
HandOver Switch parameter and HO_U2L_COV_PS_HO_SWITCH under the HandOver
Switch1 parameter.
Step 7 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to turn off the nonneighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection switch. In this step, clear
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch1
parameter.

10.7 WRFD-150216 Load Based PS Redirection from UMTS


to LTE
10.7.1 When to Use Load Based PS Redirection from UMTS to LTE
This feature is recommended in the overlapping coverage area of UMTS and LTE when:
l

The network serves UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs.

The UMTS cell is heavily loaded.

LDR is required.
NOTE

If the UMTS cell load exceeds the LDR triggering threshold (UlLdrTrigThd(BSC6900,BSC6910)/
DlLdrTrigThd(BSC6900,BSC6910)) after LDR actions such as BE service rate reduction and interfrequency load-based handovers are performed, the UMTS cell is regarded as heavily loaded.

10.7.2 Required Information


Before activating Load Based PS Redirection from UMTS to LTE, collect the following
information:
l

Traffic volume and distribution of hot spots on the UMTS network and LTE network

Proportion of UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs to the total UEs


NOTE

The proportion of UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs on a network affects the gains brought by the feature. That
is, the feature brings significant effect of inter-RAT load balancing when the proportion of UMTS/LTE
multi-mode UEs is high. However, it is hard to quantify a proportion of UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs for
deploying the feature, which depends on the specific network conditions and the operator's policy.

Other NEs as well as network equipment and transmission devices from other vendors
The CN supports 3GPP Release 8.
To support the cell load-based LTE cell selection function,
When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN, the MME and SGSN must support
the RIM procedure, through which LTE cell load information is transmitted.
When RIM messages are exchanged using Huawei eCoordinator, the eCoordinator must
be deployed and the eNodeB and RNC must be connected to the same eCoordinator so
that the eNodeB, RNC, and eCoordinator support the RIM procedure, through which
LTE cell load information is transmitted.
The UE supports 3GPP Release 8 and is a UMTS/LTE multi-mode terminal.

Precautions
If load-based LTE-to-UMTS related features are deployed on the LTE network, ping-pong
handover or redirection may occur between UMTS and LTE. For details about load-based LTEto-UMTS related features deployed on the LTE network, see MLB Feature Parameter
Description. To prevent ping-pong handovers and redirections between UMTS and LTE, it is
recommended that this feature as well as the function of selecting LTE cells based on LTE cell
load be enabled.
To select LTE cells based on LTE cell load, the RNC needs to obtain LTE cell load information
from the eNodeB through the RIM procedure. The eNodeB is the receiving party of the first
RIM message, so the related feature on the LTE side must be enabled first. Otherwise, the
eNodeB cannot respond to the RNC with LTE cell load information, and the RIM procedure
will be terminated before it is complete. For the related feature on the LTE side, see Inter-RAT
Mobility Management in Connected Mode Feature Parameter Description for eRAN.

Activation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Configure a neighboring LTE cell or LTE frequency based on the network plan.
l If the neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection or blind redirection is allowed, you need to
configure an LTE cell as the neighboring cell of the UMTS cell. The procedure is as follows:

WCDMA RAN
Interoperability Between UMTS and LTE Feature Parameter
Description

1.

10 Engineering Guidelines

(Optional) If an LTE cell has not been configured, run the RNC MML command ADD
ULTECELL to configure an LTE cell with LTE Cell Supporting PS HO Indicator set
to NotSupport(NotSupport).
NOTE

You can run the MOD ULTECELL command instead of the ADD ULTECELL command in substep 1 if an LTE cell has been configured.
Set the CnOpGrpIndex parameter in the ADD ULTECELL command to the index of a group that
includes operators of LTE cells. If the group includes only operators of UMTS cells, UMTS-to-LTE
handovers will fail.
If HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH in the LST
UCORRMALGOSWITCH command is turned off
(HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH-0), the RNC uses neighboringLTE-cell-based redirections or blind redirections. The service-, coverage-, and load-based UMTSto-LTE PS redirection or handover features share the
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH switch.

2.

(Optional) If a neighboring LTE cell or blind neighboring LTE cell has not been configured,
run the RNC MML command ADD ULTENCELL to configure a neighboring LTE cell.
To configure a blind neighboring LTE cell, set Blind HO Neighboring Cell Flag to
TRUE.
NOTE

You can run the MOD ULTENCELL command instead of the ADD ULTENCELL command in substep 2 if a neighboring LTE cell has been configured.

l If non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirections are allowed, you need to configure the LTE


frequency by running the RNC MML command ADD UCELLNFREQPRIOINFO. In this
step, set the frequency priority for the neighboring LTE cell.
Step 2 Run the RNC MML command SET UU2LTEHONCOV. In this step, set the RNC-level
parameters related to measurements for the load-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections. These
parameters are listed in Table 11-18. The RNC sends the parameter settings to the UE through
a measurement control message.
Step 3 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV to set parameters
related to measurements for the load-based UMTS-to-LTE redirections for a specific cell. These
parameters are listed in Table 11-18.
NOTE

You can run the MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command instead of the ADD
UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command in step 3 if the related parameters have been configured for the cell.
If the cell-level and RNC-level measurement-related parameters are both available, the cell-level
measurement-related parameters prevail. If the cell-level measurement-related parameters are unavailable,
the cell uses the RNC-level measurement-related parameters.

Step 4 Run the RNC MML command MOD UTYPRABBASIC to modify the basic information about
a typical RAB. In this step, set Service-Based Handover to LTE Allowed to
HO_TO_EUTRAN_SHOULD_BE_PERFORM to allow UMTS-to-LTE PS redirections or
blind redirections.
Step 5 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH. In this step, select
HO_LTE_PS_OUT_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch parameter to enable UMTS-toLTE interoperations for PS services.
Step 6 Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLLDR. In this step, turn on the
PSInterU2LLDHO switch by referring to section Suggestions for LDR Action

Configurations and set UL LDR UL PS Domain Load HO User No. and DL LDR UL PS
Domain Load HO User No. based on the network plan.
Step 7 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH with the
HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH check box under the HandOver Switch1
parameter selected.
Step 8 (Optional) If a non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based redirection is allowed, run the RNC MML
command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH to turn on the non-neighboring-LTE-cell-based
redirection switch. In this step, select the
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH and
HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH check boxes under the HandOver Switch1
parameter.
Step 9 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command MOD UCELLHOCOMM to enable the blind
redirection to LTE for a specific cell. In this step, set U2L Blind Redirect Switch to ON.
NOTE

The service-, coverage-, and load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover features use the same
U2L Blind Redirect Switch parameter.

Step 10 (Optional) To enable the cell load-based LTE cell selection function, perform the following
operations:
1.

(Optional) When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN and the UMTS PLMN differs
from the LTE PLMN, run the RNC MML command LST UCNOPERATOR to query the
value of Cn Operator Index and configure a CN route for the UMTS-to-LTE RIM procedure
according to the query result. Then run the RNC MML command MOD ULTECELL,
with CN Operator Index for Routing in U2L RIM set to the queried index of the local
operator.

2.

Run the RNC MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH. In this step, select
INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FROM_LTE_SWITCH under the Process Control
Switch 5 parameter.

3.

(Optional) When RIM messages are exchanged using the eCoordinator:


l Run the RNC MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH. In this step, select
RIM_ON_ECO_SWITCH(Support RIM by eCoordinator Switch) under the
Process Control Switch 5 parameter.
l Run the MML command SET ECOMMONCTRL on the eCoordinator. In this step,
select RIM_SWITCH(RIM Switch) under the Process Switch parameter.

4.

Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLHOCOMM or MOD


UCELLHOCOMM. In this step, select LOAD_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH
under the SW Consider LTE Load in U2L Interoperation parameter.

NOTE

l When configuring the WRFD-150216 Load Based PS Redirection from UMTS to LTE on the CME,
perform a single configuration first, and then perform a batch modification if required.
l Configure the parameters of a single object before a batch modification. Perform a batch modification
before logging out of the parameter setting interface.

Step 1 Configure a single object (such as a cell) on the CME.


Set the parameters described in Table 10-26 on the CME. For instructions on how to perform
the CME single configuration, see CME Single Configuration Operation Guide.

Activation Observation
To determine whether the feature has taken effect, check the following cell-level counters:
l

VS.U2LTEHO.RRCRelease.Load, which provides the number of load-based UMTS to


LTE PS redirections for cell

VS.U2LTEHO.RRCRelease.Load.Blind, which provides the number of load-based UMTS


to LTE PS blind redirections for cell

VS.U2LTEHO.AttRelocPrepOutPS.Load, which provides the number of outgoing UMTSto-LTE service-based PS handover preparation attempts for cell

VS.U2LTEHO.SuccRelocPrepOutPS.Load, which provides the number of successful


preparations for outgoing UMTS-to-LTE load-based PS handovers for cell

If either of counter values is not 0, the feature has taken effect.

Deactivation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH with the
HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_REDIRECT_SWITCH check box under the HandOver Switch1
parameter deselected.
NOTE

The Load Based PS Redirection from UMTS to LTE feature is deactivated after step 1 is performed.

Step 2 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command MOD UCELLLDR to disable load-based UTMSto-LTE redirection and handover. In this step, deselect the PSInterU2LLDHO check box under
all the parameters related to uplink or downlink LDR actions.

Step 3 Run the RNC MML command MOD UCELLLDR to turn off load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS
handovers switch. In this step, deselect PSInterU2LLDHO in the downlink LDR actions and
PSInterU2LLDHO in the uplink LDR actions.
NOTE

The Load Based PS Redirection from UMTS to LTE feature has been deactivated after you perform step
1.

Step 4 (Optional) To disable the blind redirection function for a cell, run the RNC MML command
MOD UCELLHOCOMM with U2L Blind Redirect Switch set to OFF.
NOTE

The service-, coverage-, and load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover features use the same
U2L Blind Redirect Switch parameter.

Step 5 (Optional) Run the SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH command to turn off the nonneighboring-cell frequency-based redirection switch. In this step, deselect
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH under the HandOver Switch1
parameter.
NOTE

The service-, coverage-, and load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS redirection or handover features share the
HO_U2L_REDIR_BASED_ABSOLUTE_FREQ_SWITCH switch.

Step 6 (Optional) To disable the cell load-based LTE cell selection function, run the RNC MML
command MOD UCELLHOCOMM with the LOAD
_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH check box under the SW Consider LTE Load in U2L
Interoperation parameter cleared.

Deactivation (Using the CME)


NOTE

l When configuring the WRFD-150216 Load Based PS Redirection from UMTS to LTE on the CME,
perform a single configuration first, and then perform a batch modification if required.
l Configure the parameters of a single object before a batch modification. Perform a batch modification
before logging out of the parameter setting interface.

Step 1 Configure a single object (such as a cell) on the CME.

These two counters specify whether the Load-Based PS Service Redirection from UMTS to LTE
feature is activated. For details, see the description about activation observation in section 10.7.4
Deployment.
When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN, RNC-level counters related to the function
of selecting target cells based on the LTE cell load are as follows:
l

VS.IU.RIM.U2L.Load.Req

VS.IU.RIM.U2L.Load.Resp

VS.IU.RIM.U2L.Load.Update

These counters specify the number of requests sent by the RNC to obtain LTE load information
through RIM procedures, the number of successful procedures for obtaining load information,
and the number of LTE cell load updates.
When RIM messages are exchanged using the eCoordinator, RNC-level counters related to the
cell load-based LTE cell selection function are as follows:
l

VS.ECO.RIM.U2L.Load.Req

VS.ECO.RIM.U2L.Load.Resp

VS.ECO.RIM.U2L.Load.Update

These counters specify the number of requests sent by the RNC to obtain LTE load information

LTE
10.8.1 When to Use Load Based PS Handover from UMTS to LTE
This feature is recommended in the overlapping coverage area of UMTS and LTE when:
l

The network serves UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs.

The UMTS cell is heavily loaded.

LDR is required.

It is recommended that this feature be used together with the LOFD-070201 RIM Based LTE
Target Cell Selection feature, which helps select cells with light load, enhance the success rate
of UMTS to LTE handover preparations, and reduce ping-pong handovers.

NOTE

If the LDR switch(UL_UU_LDR/ DL_UU_LDR) is turn on and the UMTS cell load exceeds the LDR
triggering threshold (UlLdrTrigThd(BSC6900,BSC6910)/DlLdrTrigThd(BSC6900,BSC6910)) after
LDR actions such as BE service rate reduction and inter-frequency load-based handovers are performed,
the UMTS cell is regarded as heavily loaded.

10.8.2 Required Information


Before activating Load Based PS Handover from UMTS to LTE, collect the following
information:
l

Traffic volume and distribution of hot spots on the UMTS network and LTE network

Proportion of UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs to the total UEs


NOTE

The proportion of UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs on a network affects the gains brought by the feature. That
is, the feature brings significant effect of inter-RAT load balancing when the proportion of UMTS/LTE
multi-mode UEs is high. However, it is hard to quantify a proportion of UMTS/LTE multi-mode UEs for
deploying the feature, which depends on the specific network conditions and the operator's policy.

Precautions
If load-based LTE-to-UMTS related features are deployed on the LTE network, ping-pong
handover or redirection may occur between UMTS and LTE. For details about load-based LTEto-UMTS related features deployed on the LTE network, see MLB Feature Parameter
Description. To prevent ping-pong handovers and redirections between UMTS and LTE, it is
recommended that this feature as well as the function of selecting LTE cells based on LTE cell
load be enabled.
To select LTE cells based on LTE cell load, the RNC needs to obtain LTE cell load information
from the eNodeB through the RIM procedure. The eNodeB is the receiving party of the first
RIM message, so the related feature on the LTE side must be enabled first. Otherwise, the
eNodeB cannot respond to the RNC with LTE cell load information, and the RIM procedure

Activation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 If the LDR switch is turn off, run the RNC MML command MOD
UCELLALGOSWITCH. In this step, select the UL_UU_LDR or DL_UU_LDR check box
in the Switch for Cell Load Control parameter.
Step 2 Run the RNC MML command MOD ULTECELL. In this step, set LTE Cell Supporting PS
HO Indicator to Support and BlackCell List Flag to False.
NOTE

You can run the ADD ULTECELL command instead of the MOD ULTECELL command in step 1 if
an LTE cell has not been configured.
Set the CnOpGrpIndex parameter in the ADD ULTECELL command to the index of a group that includes
operators of LTE cells. If the group includes only operators of UMTS cells, UMTS-to-LTE handovers will
fail.

Step 3 (Optional) If a neighboring LTE cell has not been configured, run the RNC MML command
ADD ULTENCELL to configure a neighboring LTE cell.
Step 4 Run the RNC MML command SET UU2LTEHONCOV. In this step, set the RNC-level
parameters related to measurements for the load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers. These
parameters are listed in Table 10-28. The RNC sends the parameter settings to the UE through
a measurement control message.
Step 5 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV to set parameters
related to measurements for the load-based UMTS-to-LTE PS handovers for a specific cell.
These parameters are listed in Table 10-28.
NOTE

You can run the MOD UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command instead of the ADD
UCELLU2LTEHONCOV command in step 4 if the related parameters have been configured for the cell.
If the cell-level and RNC-level measurement-related parameters are both available, the cell-level
measurement-related parameters prevail. If the cell-level measurement-related parameters are unavailable,
the cell uses the RNC-level measurement-related parameters.

Step 6 Run the RNC MML command MOD UTYPRABBASIC to modify the basic information about
a typical RAB. In this step, set Service-Based Handover to LTE Allowed to

1.

(Optional) When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN and the UMTS PLMN differs
from the LTE PLMN, run the RNC MML command LST UCNOPERATOR to query the
value of Cn Operator Index and configure a CN route for the UMTS-to-LTE RIM
procedure according to the query result. Then run the RNC MML command MOD
ULTECELL , with CN Operator Index for Routing in U2L RIM set to the queried index
of the local operator.

2.

Run the RNC MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH. In this step, select
INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FROM_LTE_SWITCH under the Process Control
Switch 5 parameter.

3.

(Optional) When RIM messages are exchanged using the eCoordinator:


l Run the RNC MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH. In this step, set
RIM_ON_ECO_SWITCH under the Process Control Switch 5 parameter to ON.
l Run the MML command SET ECOMMONCTRLon the eCoordinator. In this step,
set RIM_SWITCH under the Process Control Switch parameter to ON.

4.

Run the RNC MML command ADD UCELLHOCOMM or MOD


UCELLHOCOMM. In this step, select LOAD_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH
under the SW Consider LTE Load in U2L Interoperation parameter.

Checking the interface message


Start message tracing over Iu on the RNC LMT. If the cause IE in the relocation request
message contains the Reduce Load in Serving Cell IE, the feature has taken effect.

Deactivation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH with the
HO_U2L_LOAD_PS_ HO _SWITCH check box under the HandOver Switch1 parameter
deselected.
NOTE

The Load Based PS Handover from UMTS to LTE feature is deactivated after step 1 is performed.

Step 2 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command MOD UCELLLDR to disable load-based UTMSto-LTE redirection and handover. In this step, deselect the PSInterU2LLDHO check box under
all the parameters related to uplink or downlink LDR actions.
Step 3 (Optional) To disable the cell load-based LTE cell selection function, run the RNC MML
command MOD UCELLHOCOMM with the LOAD
_BASE_U2L_LTE_LOAD_SWITCH check box under the SW Consider LTE Load in U2L
Interoperation parameter cleared.

10.9.3 Performance Monitoring


After feature deployment, the PS handover success rate caused by CSFB for LTE emergency
calls increases.
The success rate of LTE-to-UMTS PS handovers caused by CSFB for LTE emergency calls is
calculated with the following formula:
Success rate of LTE-to-UMTS PS handovers caused by CSFB for LTE emergency calls =
VS.L2U.SuccRelocInPS.Emerg.RNC/VS.L2U.AttRelocPrepInPS.Emerg.RNC
l

VS.L2U.AttRelocPrepInPS.Emerg.RNC: Number of incoming LTE-to-UMTS PS


handover attempts caused by LTE emergency calls at the RNC level. When receiving the
Relocation Request message which carries Source RNC To Target RNC Transparent
Container containing CSFB High Priority, the RNC increases the counter value by 1 and
stamps the identity of CSFB High Priority on the UE. This identity is erased after the
emergency call is released.

VS.L2U.SuccRelocInPS.Emerg.RNC: Number of successful incoming LTE-to-UMTS PS


handovers caused by LTE emergency calls at the RNC level. When the RNC sends the
SGSN a Relocation Complete message, the incoming LTE-to-UMTS PS handover is
successful and the RNC increases the counter value by 1.

In ideal cases, the LTE-to-UMTS PS handover success rate caused by CSFB for LTE emergency
calls can reach 100%. Perform troubleshooting if it does not reach 100%.

Precautions
l

The SRVCC from LTE to UMTS with PS Handover feature depends on the feature
LOFD-001022 SRVCC to UTRAN, which must be activated before you can use the
SRVCC from LTE to UMTS with PS Handover feature.

In a CS+PS SRVCC handover, LTE signaling messages whose QoS class identifier (QIC)
is 5 are mapped onto the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) on the UMTS side. When the
data rates configured for these signaling messages on the LTE side are high, the UTMS
side will respond to the RELOCATION REQUEST message from the LTE side with a
relocation failure message, resulting in a low LTE-to-UMTS handover preparation success
rate. The reasons for these handover preparation failures are as follows:
When the ImsChlType(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set to DCH on the UMTS
side, the maximum data rate for the previously mentioned signaling messages is 384
kbit/s in the uplink and downlink. This data rate is lower than the data rates required by
these signaling messages.
When the ImsChlType(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter is set to HSPA on the UMTS
side, the maximum data rates for the previously mentioned signaling messages are 84.2
Mbit/s in the downlink and 23 Mbit/s in the uplink. Such data rates may also be lower
than the data rates required by these signaling messages. If these signaling messages
require that the downlink data rate be 84.2 Mbit/s, the WRFD-010693 64QAM+MIMO
and WRFD-010699 DC-HSDPA+MIMO features must be both activated on the UMTS
side.
To prevent a low LTE-to-UMTS handover preparation success rate, perform the
following operation:
Run the RNC MML command SET UCORRMALGOSWITCH and select the
CMP_IU_IMS_PROC_AS_NORMAL_PS_SWITCH check box under the
CmpSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910) parameter so that IMS services are considered as BE
services.

The maximum rate of streaming services on the UMTS network is 384 kbit/s. To prevent
handover preparation failures of streaming services, ensure that the rate of streaming
services on the LTE side does not exceed 384 kbit/s.

The maximum rate of VoIP services on the UMTS network is 64 kbit/s. To prevent handover
preparation failures of VoIP services, ensure that the rate of VoIP services on the LTE side
does not exceed 64 kbit/s.

Activation (Using MML Commands)


Step 1 Run the RNC MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH to activate the feature. In this step,
deselect L2U_SRVCC_WITH_PS_HO_SWITCH under the Process Control Switch 2
parameter.
Step 2 Run the RNC MML command SET USTATETIMER with Relocation another request
timer set to an appropriate value.
Step 3 (Optional) Run the RNC MML command SET UFRC with ARP for Emergency Call During
L2U SRVCC set to an appropriate value.

If any of the preceding success rates is lower than expected, modify parameter settings. For
details, see section 10.10.6 Parameter Optimization.
The RNC admits the LTE-to-UMTS SRVCC with PS handover of a UE that is performing CS
and PS combined services only when it receives the RELOCATION REQUEST messages from
both the CS and PS domains. When receiving a RELOCATION REQUEST message from one
domain, the RNC starts a timer. If the RNC does not receive a RELOCATION REQUEST
message from the other domain when the timer expires, the RNC rejects this handover request.
This type of failed handovers are measured by the
VS.SRVCC.FailRelocPrepInCSPS.CSTimeOut and
VS.SRVCC.FailRelocPrepInCSPS.PSTimeOut counters.
If the timer on the RNC side is longer than the timer on the CN side, the CN sends an IU
RELEASE COMMAND message to release the IU interface. In this circumstance, the preceding
counters are not measured even when a handover fails.

10.10.6 Parameter Optimization


Analyze the causes for admission failures and take measures accordingly.
l

If UTRAN resources are insufficient, consult Huawei engineers to reduce the network load.

If the RNC does not receive incoming CS+PS handover requests during the validity period

Activation Observation
To determine whether the feature has taken effect, check the interface message or the eventbased counter (EBC) on the LTE side.
l

Checking the interface message


When RIM messages are exchanged using the CN, check interface messages by performing
the following operations:

1.

Start S1 interface message tracing on the eNodeB LMT.


If an eNB Direct Information Transfer message containing RAN-INFORMAIONREQUEST is sent over the S1 interface, the eNodeB can initiate an RIM request.

2.

Start message tracing over Iu on the RNC LMT.


If the RNC sends the LTE network a Direct Information Transfer message containing RANINFORMAION upon receiving the Direct Information Transfer message containing RANINFORMAION-REQUEST over Iu, the RNC can respond to the RIM request.

3.

Change the UMTS cell load status by adjusting the cell traffic volume.
If the RNC sends the SGSN a Direct Information Transfer message containing RANINFORMAION over Iu, the RNC can notify the eNodeB of the change in the UMTS cell
load status by means of the RIM procedure.
When RIM messages are exchanged using the eCoordinator, check interface messages by
performing the following operations:

1.

Start Se interface message tracing on the eNodeB LMT.

10 Engineering Guidelines

If an ENB DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER message containing RANINFORMAION-REQUEST is sent over the Se interface, the eNodeB can initiate an RIM
request.
2.

Start Sr interface message tracing on the RNC LMT.


If the RNC sends the eCoordinator an RNC DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER
message containing RAN-INFORMAION upon receiving the ECO DIRECT
INFORMATION TRANSFER message containing RAN-INFORMAION-REQUEST
over the Sr interface, the RNC can respond to the RIM request.

3.

Change the UMTS cell load status by adjusting the cell traffic volume.
If the RNC sends the eCoordinator an RNC DIRECT INFORMATION TRANSFER
message containing RAN-INFORMAION over Sr, the RNC can notify the eNodeB of the
change in the UMTS cell load status by means of the RIM procedure.

Checking the EBC on the LTE network


In case of load-based LTE-to-UMTS handovers, if the value of the E-UTRAN-toUMTS MLB Enhanced Attempts counter is not 0, the feature has taken effect.
In case of CSFB, if the value of the E-UTRAN-to-UMTS CSFB Enhanced Attempts
counter is not 0, the feature has taken effect.

Deactivation (Using MML Commands)


Run the RNC MML command SET URRCTRLSWITCH to deactivate the feature. In this step,
clear INTERRAT_LOAD_REPORT_FOR_LTE_SWITCH under the Process switch
parameter.

MML Command Examples


//Deactivating RIM Based UMTS Target Cell Selection for LTE
