Activating Load and Service Based IS/IF Handover

Purpose
Follow the procedure below to configure and activate the Load and Service Based IS/IF Handover feature in the RNC. For more information
on the feature, see Introduction to IMSI-based handover .

This feature must be activated before enabling the handover control-related Common load measurement over Iur function.

This feature belongs to application software. This feature is controlled with the FIFILE parameter and its value is ON by default. For
information, see Licensing.

Open the OMS Element Manager.

Go to Topology and expand ROOT.

Configure the RNC/RNMOBI object with the SLHO parameters.


You can specify the SLHO-related call types with the following parameters:

SLHOUseBackgroundPSNRTData
SLHOUseConvCSSpeech
SLHOUseConvCSTData
SLHOUseConvPSRTData
SLHOUseConvPSSpeech
SLHOUseInteractivePSNRTData
SLHOUseStreamCSNTData
SLHOUseStreamPSRTData

You can specify the preferred RAT or WCDMA layer for SLHO-related call types with the following parameters:

SLHOProfileBackgroundPSNRTData
SLHOProfileConvCSSpeech
SLHOProfileConvCSTData
SLHOProfileConvPSRTData
SLHOProfileConvPSSpeech
SLHOProfileInteractivePSNRTData
SLHOProfileStreamCSNTData
SLHOProfileStreamPSRTData

For more information on RNC object handling, see Modifying RNC parameters.

Create or modify the Inter-Frequency Measurement Control (FMCI) and Inter-System Measurement Control (FMCG) objects.
Configure and check the SLHO-related FMCI and FMCG parametrization. For more information on Frequency Measurement Control
(FMC) object handling, see Creating frequency measurement control and Modifying frequency measurement control parameters .

Create or modify the WCDMA Cell (WCEL) objects.


Configure and check the SLHO-related WCEL parameters.
You can specify which load measurements can trigger load-based handover with the following parameters:

LHOWinSizeONInterference
LHOWinSizeONResRateSC=1s (also set the LHOResRateSC to a value of 1%)
LHOWinSizeONCapaReqRejRate
LHOWinSizeONHardBlocking

Use the LHONumbUEInterFreq parameter (set to value of 2) to enable load-based inter- frequency handover.
Use the LHONumbUEInterRAT parameter to enable load-based inter-RAT handover.
Use the ServHOPeriodInterFreq parameter to enable service-based inter- frequency handover.
Use the ServHOPeriodInterRAT parameter to enable service-based inter- RAT handover.
The default value of the above parameters is 0 (SLHO disabled).
For more information on WCEL handling, see Creating a WCDMA cell and Modifying WCDMA cell parameters.

Create or modify the Inter-Frequency Handover Path (HOPI) and Inter-System Handover Path (HOPG) objects.
Configure and check the SLHO-related HOPI and HOPG parametrization. For more information on HOP object handling, see Creating
handover path and Modifying handover path parameters.

Create or modify the Inter-Frequency Adjacency (ADJI) objects.


Configure and check the neighboring cell configuration according to the network planning. Check the SLHO-related parameters from
the ADJ objects. For more information on ADJI handling, see Creating an internal adjacency for a WCDMA cell and Modifying WCDMA
cell adjacencies.

Expected outcome
The Load and Service Based IS/IF Handover feature is activated in the RNC controlled network.
Further information
After activating, there is no need to reset the RNC.
The Core Network (CN) can send RANAP: Service Handover IE to RNC message, which improves the operation of the SLHO. However, this
message is not a must. For more information on the related parameters, see WCDMA Radio Network Configuration Parameters Excel in
WCDMA RAN Operating Documentation, Parameters in NOLS PIC.
