GSM Information Elements

IE Support in Connectable Equipment


Some elements are presentable only with a subset of the connectable devices. See the table in
section 5.2.
Properties of Information Elements: The Asterisk Column
In the column marked *, a set of codes is used to state conditions under which an information
element is

valid: a non-trivial condition must be fulfilled for the element to be valid
•not valid: the element is normally valid, but in certain circumstances it is not (code ends in
“–”)
•extended compared to the simplest GSM case: the element sometimes carries more
information, for example when frequency hopping is used (code ends in “+”)
If nothing is written in the asterisk column, the element is always valid (provided it is
supported by the device).

Cod
Meaning
e

c Valid if a cell file is loaded.

g Valid when running GPRS. Not valid for voice.

g+ The element is richer for (E)GPRS, in one of the following ways:



more values, i.e. more arguments – e.g. C/I Best

values have a more complex meaning – e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots)

larger range of possible values – e.g. Channel Type.

g– Not valid when running (E)GPRS.

ga Valid in GAN mode or for GAN-capable phones.

h Valid if frequency hopping is used.

h+ The element is richer if frequency hopping is used.


If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list.

No GPRS connection: One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63)
GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on each channel (arguments 0 through 64 · 8 –
•1 = 511). Exception: C/I Hopping List has only one value for each channel (arguments
0 through 63).
If frequency hopping is not used, the element contains values for the single channel
employed.

No GPRS connection: One single value (argument 0).

GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on the channel (arguments 0 through 7).
Example: C/I Best.

hc+ If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. One
value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63).
No separate values for each timeslot for a GPRS connection.
Example: C/I Hopping List.

h– Not valid if frequency hopping is used.

hs Valid when running HSCSD. Not valid for voice.

hs+ The element is richer for HSCSD, in one of the following ways:

more values, i.e. more arguments – e.g. C/I Best

values have a more complex meaning – e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots)

larger range of possible values – e.g. Channel Type.

hs– Not valid when running HSCSD.

p Reported by positioning equipment.

s Valid when some form of GSM scanning is undertaken (DC UM chapter 9).

si (Valid when doing interference scanning with a Sony Ericsson GSM phone.) This function
is no longer supported in any connectable phone, but the information elements are
retained in this description since old logfiles with interference scan data can still be
replayed in the application.
“Full” and “Sub” Values
Information elements with “Full” in their names are calculated on all blocks.
Information elements with “Sub” in their names are calculated only on the blocks known to be
sent also when downlink DTX is active (in each 104-multiframe, one TCH block with SID
information and one SACCH block).
GSM RxLev Units
GSM RxLev units are defined in 3GPP 45.008, section 8.1.4.

Scanned BCCH 846 decreasing signal strength.
ARFCN Argument: Except in the case of neighbor list
scanning, 0 means the strongest channel of
those currently scanned, etc.
When neighbor list scanning is performed, all
neighbors come first, and then all other
channels follow, both channel sets being sorted
internally by decreasing signal strength.

Scanned Band MHz 846 decreasing signal strength.

Handover (handover restricted to a chosen set of cells;
see DC UM section 15.2.3.9).

TFI DL 0 ... 31 – g Temporary Flow Id on uplink. Used to identify a


one-block flow.

TFI UL 0 ... 31 – g Temporary Flow Id on downlink. Used to identify


a one-block flow.

Time Text – Current time in text format: HH:MM:SS.mm,


where mm = decimal seconds.

Timeslot IEs: The argument, where present, represents a timeslot but is just a sequence
General number. That is, 0 represents the first used timeslot, 1 the second, etc.; the
remark argument value does not equate to the corresponding timeslot index.

Timeslot 0 ... 7 – Timeslot used for current call. Valid only in


dedicated mode.

ARFCN Argument: Except in the case of neighbor list
scanning, 0 means the weakest channel of
those currently scanned, etc.
When neighbor list scanning is performed,
channels are sorted exactly in the opposite
order to Strongest Scanned ARFCN. (The
“Weakest” element serves no purpose in this
context.)
