capacity of wireless network, especially the radio capacity(user/cell throughput)
become the bottleneck. How to provide more big pipe capacity with limited resource, it is
question of all operators and device vender.

The influence factors for uplink throughput including RTWP, coverage, cell maximum
equivalent user number, HSUPA user number, CE, IUB bandwidth...

The influence factors for downlink throughput including TCP, BLER, HSDPA user number,
CE, IUB bandwidth...

UL&DL capacity improvement service evaluate the network with tools quickly, discover
network bottleneck in time, dig out the potential sale chance, improve customer satisfaction.

System Interference Solution (3/4)
Solution 3 : Automatically background noise update

Description
If the RTWP is high in free hour, and customer cant find the root cause and solve
interference after RTWP troubleshooting. For the cell with stable background noise, you
could synchronize the real background noise through Automatically background noise
update algorithm, which will improve HSUPA available load.
Fixed setting : -106 by default
Automatic update : deliver the value detected during the night to Node B

Pros & Cons


Benefit:
- Keep the background noise consistent with the real value of background noise.
- HSUPA available scheduling load may be increase.
Disadvantage:
- The background noise reference must be recorded without any user in the cell.

Application

System Interference Solution(4/4)
Solution 4 : HSUPA anti-interference scheduling (feature WRFD-020136)

Description:
On commercial networks some site experience strong and random external UL interference.
The traditional HSUPA scheduling algorithm considers only the total RTWP of a cell
=> available load resources are reduced and the HSUPA throughput decrease.
With this feature, UEs HSUPA scheduling is performed based on the cell RTWP and traffic volume of
HSUPA UEs in the cell.
If the traffic volume (HSUPA and R99 users) is lower than the predefined threshold, HSUPA
scheduling can be performed even if the ROT of the cell increases to a very high value.

Pros & Cons


Benefit: Improve user throughput even though interference exist.
Disadvantage: Real RTWP will increase, the KPI such as access, call drop may be degraded.

If there is no interference, this feature is useless and has no impact on any KPIs.

Application
RNC MMLMOD UCELLCAC: BackgroundNoise = 61;
Baseline61, equal to -106dB. Manually update to the mean RTWP value in free hour without users,
it could get according to RNC counter.

HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. Huawei Confidential


Target High UL Load Scenario

Rule:
Busy Hour:

Cell MeanRTWP > Real Background Noise + Cell Target Load

Or

Target Overload Solution (1/13)
Solution 1 : CQI feedback period optimization

Description:
The uplink feedback channel HS-DPCCH of HSDPA consume part of uplink load
More and more HSDPA user online at the same time in the cell (> 20 users);
HSDPA uplink feedback channel contribute a big part of RTWP load.
It is recommended to optimize HSDPA CQI feedback period, to reduce impact on
uplink.

Pros & Cons


Benefit: The CQI period is postponed
=> the Load of HS-DPCCH decrease
=> the available load for HSUPA will increase.
Disadvantage: if the CQI period is too long, it could not reflect the accurate
channel quality on time and HSDPA throughput may be affected.

Application

Target Overload Solution (2/13)
Solution 2: Target ROT Optimization

Description:
HSUPA scheduling depends on UL load. You can optimize the value of
target ROT
The Higher is the target load => the more load is available for HSUPA
The defaulted target load is 75%, we suggest to modify to 90%.

Pros & Cons


Benefit: HSUPA user number capacity and cell throughput will improve
Disadvantage: As the uplink load increase, the coverage will decrease. Call
drop may degraded a the edge off the cell.

Application

When the coverage is bad or massive RRC access exist => UE TX power
could increase quickly involving RTWP peaks.
In order to control RTWP peaks, RACH access parameters could be
optimized. (More effective for indoor massive user scenario)

Pros & Cons


Benefit: Reduce the sharp impact of preamble open-loop power control on
uplink RTWP in initial RACH access. Cell mean RTWP should decrease.
Disadvantage: the access delay may increase

Solution 4 : HSUPA 10ms BLER optimization

Description:
The current target BLER value is benefit for HSUPA user with high throughput in
good coverage.
If many users are online at the same time with low throughput => UE sends high
power in order to transfer low throughput (bad power efficiency)
In that case target BLER optimization parameter from 1% to 10% is recommended
which will the UE Tx power and the nb of TB retransmission

Pros & Cons


Benefit: The uplink power efficiency will improved, HSUPA user throughput will
increase, or RTWP may be decrease, KPI such call drop may improve.
Disadvantage: The parameter optimization may have negative affect for the user
with real high throughput.

Application

Target Overload Solution (5/13)
Solution 5 : HSPA state transfer

Description:
In CELL_DCH state, when there is no data transmission, UE still need to send
dedicated channel DPCCH and HS_DPCCH =>
control channel load is high when many users are online, and generates a big part
of ROT.
After enabling HSPA state transfer switch, user will move to CELL_FACH or
CELL_PCH state when there is low date transmission

Pros & Cons


Benefit : some uplink load will be saved, control channel load and RTWP will
decrease .
Disadvantage : Time delay will and signaling could increase (cell reconfiguration),
and the call drop may be degraded.

could decrease uplink load (Nb of R99 users could increase)

Pros & Cons


Benefit: Uplink load may decrease, user throughput may be improved.
Disadvantage: If the value is too low, the cell HSDPA capacity may be
reduces, leading to waste in HSUPA resources

Description:
HSUPA 2ms TTI provide better throughput but will easily involve RTWP
peaks when data bursts appears, especially in dynamic CE active scenario.
HSUPA 2ms TTI require more TX power, so we suggest to open 2ms/10ms
TTI switch based on RTWP.
If 2ms period retry switch is on, massive 2ms/10ms ping-pong switch may
exist in case of RTWP peaks => close the 2ms retry switch

Pros & Cons


Benefit: Uplink load may decrease.

Disadvantage: Lower throughput with TTI 10ms when the user have real
high throughput requirement.

Deactivation of DC-HSDPA avoid redundant UL power of DC-HSDPA UE so


as to decrease UL interference and save power for UE.

Pros & Cons


Benefit: save UE TX power consumption, decrease uplink load, improve
HSUPA throughput.

Channel Quality Limit Solution (1/5)
Solution1: MPOC adjustment

Description

MPO value was used when UE measure the CQI, MPOC setting will affect
MPO value, unreasonable MPOC configuration, such as too large, will result
in small CQI :
MPO = min(13, Pcell-Pcpich - MPO constant) dB
For commercial network, suggest to adopt default value, 2.5dB.

Pros & Cons


Benefit: the CQI could reflect the real channel quality more precisely.

Disadvantage: None.

high cost and long period for expansion, HUAWEI innovated multi-sector
expansion for outdoor and indoor micro site.

Pros & Cons


Benefit: system capacity enhance, CQI will be improved.

Disadvantage: None.

Application

congestion temporarily
If the DL load of a cell is higher than this threshold => this service will be
rejected

Pros & Cons


Benefit: More users could be served at the same time.
Disadvantage: Total power congestion become more serious.

Application

Solution 4 : Cell PCH/R8 FD

Description
As smart phone penetration increases :
-More and more services and applications.
-More and more users are online at the same time, which consume lots of power resource.

Signaling storm solution Cell PCH + R8 FD transfer more users to CELL_PCH and
CELL_FACH state
=> RRC attempts and dedicated channel resource consumption decrease
Pros & Cons
Benefit: RRC attempts and dedicated channel users decrease, uplink load will be
improved.
Disadvantage: When user need to transfer data again, it need to change to
FACH or DCH state, time delay increase, signaling increase (Cell update, RB re-
configuration)

Description
if FACH power is high, it is suggested to optimize the H2F timer when BE
services is in the stable low activity state

Pros & Cons


Benefit: Decrease cell power congestion. More users carry HSDPA
Disadvantage :
- If the value of this parameter is too low, it can not judge whether
the UE is in low activity state.
- If the value of this parameter is too high, the dedicated channel
resources are wasted.

Benefit: Relieve cell power congestion. More users carry HSDPA
Disadvantage: When the service is carried on HSDPA, the associated DL
SRB will consume extra power.

Application
RNC MML:
