Channel Switching

Channel Switching HS-DSCH VS DCH - concept

After the HS-DSCH is introduced, the UE can stay in a new state, CELL_DCH (with HS-DSCH). Thus, there are additional transitions between CELL_DCH (with HS-DSCH) and CELL_FACH and transitions between CELL_DCH (with HS-DSCH) and CELL_DCH even when both the cell and the UE support the HS-DSCH

Channel Switching HS-DSCH VS DCH - concept After the HS-DSCH is introduced, the UE can stay
  • The switching between HS-DSCH and

FACH can be triggered by traffic volume, which is similar to the switching between DCH and FACH.

When the cell load is too high, load control may also trigger the switching from the HS-DSCH to the FACH to relieve congestion.

When the cell load becomes low, channel switching aids load control in attempting to switch the transport channel back to the HS-DSCH

When a service is set up, the channel switching function selects an appropriate

bearer channel based on the cell capability and UE capability to ensure the QoS while efficiently using the cell resources.

When the user is moving, the channel switching function adjusts the channel type based on the UE capability to ensure service

continuity while improving user experience.

1.Triggered Channel switching from HS-DSCH to DCH

  • 1.1 Access Control

    • 1.1.1 Network will assign RAB depends on UE and Network capability , if UE and network support HSPA (R5,R6), the HSPA RAB will assign to

UE first

  • 1.1.2 When neither the resources of the serving cell nor the resources of the inter-frequency same-coverage neighboring cell are sufficient,

the HS-DSCH is switched to the DCH and only the DCH connection is set (This case can control via HSPA CAC algorithms based on number of

HSPA user)

1.2. Mobility Management

Mobility management may trigger the switching from the HS-DSCH to the DCH. If the UE with the HS-DSCH service cannot set up the HS- DSCH connection with the target cell, the channel switching function, together with mobility management, switches the HS-DSCH to the DCH. When the HS-DSCH connection is available, the channel switching function switches the DCH back to the HS-DSCH.

1.2.1. If the new best cell does not support the HS-DSCH, the UE cannot set up the HS-DSCH connection. In this case, the HS-DSCH is switched to the DCH.

  • 1.2.2 If the new best cell supports the HS-DSCH but a new HS-DSCH connection cannot be set up because the resources are insufficient, the

DCH connection is set up and the HS-DSCH is switched to this DCH.

  • 1.2.3 The user moves from a cell supporting the DCH but not supporting the HS-DSCH to a cell supporting the HS-DSCH. In this case, the DCH

connection is also set up because the DCH supports soft handover,

which can increase the inter-cell handover success rate.

  • 1.2.4 When the CM Permit Switch is "Off" , when Inter-RAT HO trigger, the HS-DSCH need o downgrade to R99 DCH to enter CM

(Compressed Mode)

2. Triggered Channel switching from DCH to HS-DSCH

  • 3.1 Mobility management

Suppose the UE is moving from cell 2 (R99) to cell 1 (HSDPA), or from cell 1 (HSDPA), to cell 2 (R99). It will trigger channel switch base on the

handover.

  • 3.2 Triggered by traffic volume

When the service is suitable to be carried on HSDPA and the UE supports HSDPA but the service is actually mapped onto the DCH (for some

reasons such as the UE is rejected to access a HSDPA cell by CAC Algorithm).

If the activity of the H UE that performs data services increases and the RNC receives the report of the 4a event, the H UE will try to switch from DCH to HS-DSCH.

  • 3.3 Triggered by timer

When the service is suitable to be carried on HSDPA and the UE supports HSDPA but the service is actually mapped onto the DCH (for some reasons such as the UE is rejected to access a HSDPA cell by CAC Algorithm),a timer is used to periodical attempt to map the service onto

the HS-DSCH. Firstly, attempt to map onto HS-DSCH of the current cell, if failed, then attempt to map onto HS-DSCH of the inter-frequency

blind handover cell with the same coverage. This timer length is set to ChannelRetryTimerLen (This parameter specifies the value of the channel retry timer. The timer will start after traffic is set up or reconfigured, if higher technique is available. Channel retry will be performed after this timer expires. If the value of the parameter is set to 0, channel retry cannot be performed ).
