Overview of Co-RRM

2.1 Introduction
The Co-RRM feature utilizes information exchange between GSM and UMTS over the Iur-g
interface to support the following functions and mechanisms:
l

Cell Load Information Sharing

Handover Based on Load Enhancement

Service Distribution

Load Balancing

NACC Procedure Optimization

Through the internal information exchange, the load information of GSM and UMTS cells can
be shared, and the procedure of Network Assisted Cell Change (NACC) can be optimized.
Handover based on load enhancement, service distribution, and load balancing are based on the
traffic load of GSM/UMTS cells and the characteristics of each network. The main difference
between the three functions is the requirements for candidate cells during inter-RAT handovers.
The following sections provide the detailed description for each function.
The MBSC is a GSM+UMTS multimode base station controller (MBSC) of Huawei. It
implements the functions of both UMTS RNC and GSM BSC, as shown in Figure 2-1. In this
document, the base station controller is referred to as BSC regarding GSM functions and as RNC
regarding UMTS functions.

2 Overview of Co-RRM

Figure 2-1 MBSC in Co-RRM

2.2 Purposes
In Co-RRM, several GSM/UMTS interoperability functions are optimized in the MBSC to
achieve better network convergence and enhance network throughput.
The Co-RRM feature provides the following advantages:
l

Load information of the neighboring GSM and UMTS cells can be shared, which enhances
the load control capability between GSM and UMTS.

The accuracy of the load information for handover decision between GSM and UMTS is
enhanced, reducing the risk of ping-pong effect.

Service load can be distributed based on the conditions in the GSM and UMTS networks
through RRC redirection and service-based inter-RAT handovers. This enables the GSM
network to handle voice services and the UMTS network to handle high-speed PS services

Service load can be distributed based on the service attributes and the conditions in the
GSM and UMTS networks through RRC redirection and load-based inter-RAT handovers.
In this way, the load on the two networks in the same coverage area is increased evenly so
the risk of network congestion due to load imbalance is reduced and the total network
capacity is enhanced.

The CN does not need to be involved in the GSM/UMTS PS NACC procedure under one
MBSC. In this way, the execution time for the NACC procedure is shortened and the PS
service handover delay is reduced. In addition, an NACC solution is also provided when
the CN does not support the RAN information management (RIM) procedure.

3 Cell Load Information Sharing

Cell Load Information Sharing

3.1 Common Measurement Procedure


The basic procedure behind the cell load information sharing is an MBSC internal information
exchange mechanism, where the BSC side of the MBSC sends a COMMON
MEASUREMENT INITIATION REQUEST message to the RNC side and vice versa to
initiate the common measurement procedure, requesting the target RNC/BSC to report the load
information of its neighboring cells. If the target RNC/BSC supports the common measurement,
it responds with a COMMON MEASUREMENT INITIATION RESPOSE message;
otherwise, it responds with a COMMON MEASUREMENT INITIATION FAILURE
message.
After a successful common measurement initialization, the target RNC/BSC sends the
COMMON MEASUREMENT REPORT message to the source BSC/RNC periodically to
report its load information. If the measurement fails to be further performed, for example, when
the cell is faulty, blocked, deleted, or deactivated, the common measurement is stopped. In this
case, the target RNC/BSC sends a COMMON MEASUREMENT FAILURE
INDICATION message to the source BSC/RNC.
If the BSC sends a COMMON MEASUREMENT INITIATION REQUEST message to the
interconnected RNC over the Iur-g interface, the RNC supports a maximum of 3000 UMTS
cells.
Figure 3-1, Figure 3-2, Figure 3-3 and Figure 3-4 show the common measurement procedure.

3.2 Cell Load Information


During the common measurement procedure, load information related to GSM and UMTS cells
is shared between the BSC and RNC sides of the MBSC. In addition, the GSM cell sends the
information whether it supports inter-RAT handovers.
There are three load states: normal, basic congestion, and overload congestion.
In the uplink:
l

An uplink load lower than the GSM uplink basic congestion threshold
(UlLdrThrd2GCell) represents the normal state.

An uplink load above the GSM uplink basic congestion threshold (UlLdrThrd2GCell) but
below the GSM uplink overload congestion threshold (UlOlcThrd2GCell) represents the
basic congestion state.

An uplink load above the GSM uplink overload congestion threshold


(UlOlcThrd2GCell) represents the overload congestion state.

In the downlink:

3 Cell Load Information Sharing

A downlink load below the GSM downlink basic congestion threshold


(DlLdrThrd2GCell) represents the normal state.

A downlink load above the GSM downlink basic congestion threshold


(DlLdrThrd2GCell) but lower than the GSM downlink overload congestion threshold
(DOlcThrd2GCell) represents the basic congestion state.

A downlink load above the GSM downlink overload congestion threshold


(DlOlcThrd2GCell) represents the overload congestion state.

The BSC side of the MBSC sends the inter-RAT handover support information to indicate
whether the CS/PS services can be handed over from a UMTS cell to a GSM cell. The interRAT handover support information includes the inter-RAT CS service handover support flag
and the inter-RAT PS service handover support flag.
l

If the inter-RAT CS service handover support flag is enabled, the corresponding GSM cell
can be the target cell of the inter-RAT CS service handover from a UMTS cell. Use the
following method to determine whether the inter-RAT CS service handover support flag
is enabled: If inter-RAT handovers to GSM cells are allowed, compare the cell TCH usage
with InterRatCsServiceLoadHoThrd.
If the cell TCH usage is less than or equal to the value of this parameter, the inter-RAT
CS service handover support flag is enabled.
If the cell TCH usage is greater than the value of this parameter, the inter-RAT CS
service handover support flag is disabled.

Issue 02 (2013-11-15)

If the inter-RAT PS service handover support flag is enabled, the corresponding GSM cell
can be the target cell of the inter-RAT PS service handover from a UMTS cell.

Handover Based on Load Enhancement

4.1 Handover Based on Load Enhancement


The UMTS handover based on load enhancement function corresponds to the feature
WRFD-070004 Load Based GSM and UMTS Handover Enhancement Based on Iur-g.
Through the internal load information sharing mechanism, the load-based inter-RAT handover
is enhanced in the UMTS.
l

In the load-based inter-RAT handover, the UMTS selects the target GSM cell according to
the load on the neighboring GSM cell and the load difference between the UMTS cell and
the neighboring GSM cell.

In the inter-RAT handover based on hierarchical cell structure, the UMTS selects the target
GSM cell depending on the load on the neighboring cells.

The following paragraphs provide further descriptions of the two handover modes.

4.1.1 Load-Based Inter-RAT Handover Enhancement


When the indication of non-coverage-based handover based on GSM load
(MBSCNcovHoOn2GldInd(BSC6900,BSC6910)) and the indication of load-based handover
based on the load difference between UMTS and GSM (LoadHoOn3G2GldInd
(BSC6900,BSC6910)) are set to ON, the load-based handover to the GSM cell is triggered when
the traffic load on the UMTS cell is heavy. The RNC performs handover decision based on the
load on the neighboring GSM cell and the load difference between the UMTS cell and the
neighboring GSM cell.
For the CS service, a GSM candidate cell must meet the following conditions:
l

The cell supports the inter-RAT handover for CS services.

The load on the cell is lower than the CS outgoing inter-RAT handover GSM load threshold
(CSHOOut2GloadThd(BSC6900,BSC6910)).

The load of UMTS source cell minus the load of the cell is higher than the threshold of CS
load difference between UMTS and GSM (Mbsc3G2GLdBlcCsDeltaThrd
(BSC6900,BSC6910)).

For the PS service, a GSM candidate cell must meet the following conditions:

The load of UMTS source cell minus the load of the cell is higher than the threshold of PS
load difference between UMTS and GSM (Mbsc3G2GLdBlcPsDeltaThrd
(BSC6900,BSC6910)).

The RNC initiates the handover to the best GSM candidate cell.

Enhancement
When the indication of non-coverage-based handover based on GSM load
(MBSCNcovHoOn2GldInd(BSC6900,BSC6910)) is set to ON, the handover to the GSM cell
is triggered when the traffic load on the UMTS cell is high. The RNC performs the handover
decision depending on the load on the neighboring GSM cell.
For the CS service, a GSM candidate cell must meet the following conditions:
l

The cell supports the inter-RAT handover for CS services.

The load on the cell is lower than the CS outgoing inter-RAT handover GSM load threshold
(CSHOOut2GloadThd(BSC6910,BSC6900)).

For the PS service, a GSM candidate cell must meet the following conditions:
l

The cell supports the inter-RAT handover for PS services.

The load on the cell is lower than the PS outgoing inter-RAT handover GSM load threshold
(PSHOOut2GloadThd(BSC6900,BSC6910)).

4.2 GSM Handover Based on Load Enhancement


The GSM handover based on load enhancement function corresponds to the feature
GBFD-511101 Load Based Handover Enhancement on Iur-g.
When the inter-RAT load handover switch (OutSysLoadHoEn) is set to ON, the load-based
handover from GSM to UMTS is triggered if the load on the GSM cell reaches load handover
threshold and the Service Handover attribute of the current service is not "handover to UTRAN
or cdma2000 shall not be performed".
The candidate neighboring UMTS cell must meet the following conditions:
l

The value of (G2GLoadAdjustCoeff x Current load of the GSM serving cell 10 x Load
of the neighboring UMTS cell) is greater than or equal to the value of (10 x
G2G3GldBlcDeltaThrd 1000).

If the neighboring UMTS cell is an FDD cell and FDDREP is set to RSCP(RSCP), this
cell must meet the following conditions:
InterRATLoadHoRSCPStart - A < CPICH RSCP < InterRATLoadHoRSCPStart
CPICH RSCP > IntRATLoadHORSCPThr
In the preceding formula, A is the load handover bandwidth. A = (1 + T/
IntRATLoadHoPeriod) x InterRATLoadHoRSCPStep

The maximum value of A cannot exceed the value of
theInterRATLoadHoRSCPBandWidth parameter.
l

If the neighboring UMTS cell is an FDD cell and FDDREP is set to Ec/N0(Ec/N0), this
cell must meet the following conditions:
InterRATLoadHoEcNoStart A < CPICH Ec/No < InterRATLoadHoEcNoStart
CPICH Ec/No > IntRATLoadHOEcNoThr
In the preceding formula, A is the load handover bandwidth. A = (1 + T/

5.1 UMTS-to-GSM Service Distribution


The UMTS-to-GSM service distribution function corresponds to the feature WRFD-070007
GSM and UMTS Traffic Steering Based on Iur-g.
In UMTS-to-GSM service distribution, the users in the UMTS network are handed over to a
GSM target cell that is not congested. The UMTS-to-GSM service distribution can be performed
in either of the following phases:
l

CS service distribution during RRC setup: During the RRC setup, the CS AMR services
are redirected to the GSM cell.

Service distribution after RAB setup: After the RAB is set up, the CS or PS services are
handed over to the GSM cell.

5.1.1 CS Service Distribution During RRC Setup


If the CS service is initiated during the RRC setup stage and the service distribution and load
balancing algorithm switch (MBSCServiceDiffLdbSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910)) is set to
SERVICE-BASED, the service distribution is performed as shown in Figure 5-1.

6.1 UMTS Load Balancing


The UMTS load balancing function corresponds to the feature WRFD-070006 GSM and UMTS
Load Balancing Based on Iur-g.
With UMTS load balancing, the CS AMR services and the low-rate PS services are handed over
from a UMTS cell to a GSM cell when the GSM cell load is in normal state. The UMTS load
balancing can be performed in either of the following phases:
l

Load balancing during RRC setup: During the setup of the RRC connection, the CS AMR
services are redirected to the GSM cell.

Load balancing after RAB setup: After the RAB is set up, the single CS or PS services are
handed over to the GSM cell.

Generally, actual traffic load is used during UMTS load balancing. If the load reporting function
is not enabled, equivalent number of users (ENU) is used during UMTS load balancing.

6.1.1 Load Balancing During RRC Setup


If the CS AMR service is initiated during the RRC setup stage and the service distribution and
load balancing algorithm switch (MBSCServiceDiffLdbSwitch(BSC6900,BSC6910)) is set to

initiates the handover to the best GSM candidate cell. If no qualified cell is available among the
neighboring GSM cells, the UE is retained in the UMTS cell.

6.2 GSM Load balancing


The GSM load balancing function corresponds to the feature GBFD-511103 GSM and UMTS
Load Balancing Based on Iur-g.
Load balancing can be enabled by setting the inter-RAT load handover switch
(InterRatServiceLoadHoSwitch) to Load-based. Based on the load in the target UMTS cells,
the UEs in the GSM network are handed over to the UMTS cells. During the call setup, the
GSM-to-UMTS load balancing is performed through directed retry, as shown in Figure 6-3.
Figure 6-3 GSM load balancing

The BSC performs load balancing when the Service Handover attribute carried in the channel
assignment request from the MSC is "handover to UTRAN or cdma2000 should be performed"
and the uplink and downlink load on the GSM cell that carries the service is not in normal state.
The BSC selects the neighboring UMTS cells that meet the following conditions as candidate
cells:
l

The UMTS cell is in operation.

The uplink load and downlink load in the UMTS cell is not in overload congestion state.

6 Load Balancing

The load of GSM source cell minus the load of the cell is higher than the threshold of CS
load difference between UMTS and GSM (G2G3GLdBlcDeltaThrd).

The BSC initiates the redirection to the best UMTS candidate cell. If no cell is suitable among
the neighboring UMTS cells, the UE accesses the GSM cell.
If the inter-RAT load handover switch (InterRatServiceLoadHoSwitch) is set to Dynamic
Service/Load-based and the serving cell is in load congestion, the BSC selects a suitable cell
according to the preceding procedure for the UE to access.

7 NACC Procedure Optimization

NACC Procedure Optimization

The NACC procedure optimization function corresponds to the feature MRFD-211401 NACC
Procedure Optimization, and the feature WRFD-070005 NACC Procedure Optimization Based
on Iur-g between GSM and UMTS.
To perform NACC in the PS domain, the UMTS cell needs to obtain the system information
related to the GSM cell. If the UMTS cell and the GSM cell are operated by the same MBSC,
system information related to the GSM cell can be obtained through internal information transfer
rather than through the core network. This reduces the signaling load on the SGSN and makes
the cell reselection operation faster.
In a common NACC procedure, when the RNC needs to obtain the system information related
to a GSM cell, it sends a RAN INFORMATION REQUEST message to the SGSN. The SGSN
then identifies the BSC that serves the target GSM cell, and then forwards the message to this
target BSC. The response message, RAN INFORMATION, from the BSC is sent to the RNC
through the SGSN. The signaling procedure is illustrated in Figure 7-1.
Figure 7-1 Normal NACC procedure

In the optimized NACC procedure, the SGSN is not involved. If the UMTS cell and the target
GSM cell are operated by the same MBSC, the RNC sends the INFORMATION EXCHANGE
INITIATION REQUEST message to the BSC through an internal message. In addition, the
BSC sends the response message through the internal message. The signaling procedure is
illustrated in Figure 7-2.

Verification
NOTE

If the verification achieves the following results as expected, the configuration succeeds. Otherwise, the
configuration fails.

3G-to-2G Load Balancing


NOTE

The verification can be done when only the UMTS cell is in the basic congestion state.

The verification procedure consists of the RRC setup phase and the RAB connection phase. The
verification in the latter phase involves CS speech services and PS data services.
Step 1 Verifying that CS speech services in UMTS cell 1 are handed over to GSM cell 2 at the RRC
setup phase
Use a dual-mode MS to call a fixed telephone in cell 1. The call is successfully established.
Initiate Uu-interface signaling tracing on the LMT. The RRC_RRC_CONNECT_REQ and
RRC_RRC_CONN_REJECT messages are reported, and the RRC_RRC_CONN_REJECT
message contains GSM-TargetCellInfo. That is, information about cell2 is contained, indicating
that the MS accesses cell2.
Step 2 Verifying that PS data services in UMTS cell1 are handed over to GPRS cell3 at the RAB
connection phase
1.

Use an MS to browse the Internet.

2.

Initiate Uu-interface message tracing on the LMT. You can find that the messages
RRC_RB_SETUP, RRC_RB_SETUP_CMP, RRC_MEAS_CTRL, and
RRC_CELL_CHANGE_ORDER_FROM_UTRAN are reported, and that the value of
InterRATEvent in the RRC_MEAS_CTRL message is event3c.

3.

Initiate Iu-interface signaling tracing on the LMT. You can find that the
RANAP_SRNS_CONTEXT_REQ message is sent from the CN to the RNC and then the
RANAP_SRNS_CONTEXT_RESP message is sent from the RNC to the CN.

4.

Initiate Iu-interface signaling tracing on the LMT. You can find that the
RANAP_SRNS_DATA_FORWARD_COMMAND and
RANAP_IU_RELEASE_COMMAND messages are sent from the CN to the RNC and
then the RANAP_IU_RELEASE_COMPLETE message is sent from the RNC to the CN.

5.

When the MS attempts to reselect cell3, Internet browsing is slightly affected. After the
MS reselects cell3, Internet browsing returns to normal.

Step 3 Verifying that CS speech services in UMTS cell1 are handed over to GSM cell2 at the RAB
connection phase.
1.

Use the dual-mode MS to call a fixed telephone in cell1. The call is successfully established.

2.

Initiate Uu-interface tracing on the LMT. You can find that the messages
RRC_RB_SETUP, RRC_RB_SETUP_CMP, RRC_MEAS_CTRL, and
RRC_HO_FROM_UTRAN_CMD_GSM are reported, and that the value of
InterRATEvent in the RRC_MEAS_CTRL message is event3c.

3.

Initiate Iu-interface signaling tracing on the LMT. You can find that the
RANAP_RELOCATION_REQUIRED message is sent from the RNC to the CN and then
the RANAP_RELOCATION_COMMAND and RANAP_IU_RELEASE_COMMAND
messages are sent from the CN to the RNC.
