ANR Inter­
­ Fully UE­
Introduction to the feature
The LTE908: ANR Inter-RAT UTRAN - Fully UE-based feature introduces a new mechanism for neighbor relations
(NRs) between LTE and UTRAN cells. The LTE908: ANR Inter-RAT UTRAN - Fully UE-based feature currently covers
only WCDMA UTRAN neighboring cells.

End-user benefits
This feature provides to the end-user less call drops and better network quality as the neighbor configuration is more
optimal and up to date.
Operator benefits
This feature provides the following benefits to the operator:
The operator does not have to create UTRA cell NRs manually via O&M.
The operator can configure UTRAN frequencies, for which neighboring UTRAN cells will be searched.

The operator configures the UTRAN ANR profiles and provides target frequencies and other parameters for searching
new neighboring cells.
The eNB autonomously creates NRs to UTRAN cells, using the ANR measurements at the connected UEs. Under
certain conditions (for example, UE capabilities, UE inactivity, a number of neighbor relations below a pre-defined
threshold) a serving cell asks connected UEs to detect unknown UTRA cells. Next, the UE, under certain conditions (for
example, detected signal level of the UTRA cell to be resolved), reports the identity information of these cells to the
eNB. The cells' identity information sent to the eNB is as follows:
physical cell ID (PCI)
cell identity (cell id)
public land mobile network (PLMN) ID
location area code (LAC)
routing area code (RAC)
The UE provides the cell data to the eNB via air interface. When the eNB gets all needed UTRA cell data from the UE, it
stores it in the database. This information is used for related mobility procedures.
When the ANR report from the UE is not complete (LAC and/or RAC is missing), the eNB treats the PCI as not resolved.
The appropriate performance counter for incomplete CGI resolutions increases, and the operator is informed about not
successful ANR resolutions. The operator checks the relevant PM counters, and then he can either change ANR
blacklisting, or check and correct UTRAN configuration.
ANR measurements
The LTE908: ANR Inter-RAT UTRAN - Fully UE-based feature uses the following UTRAN ANR measurements:
UTRA ReportStrongestCellForSON - used to detect new unknown UTRA PCIs. When a new PCI is reported
by the UE, the eNB adds this PCI to the respective unknown PCI list of the eNB cell where that UE is
UTRA ReportStrongestCells - activated when the UE becomes inactive. This measurement shows which of the
unknown PCIs collected via UTRA ReportStrongestCellForSon are seen by this UE.
UTRA ReportCGI - activated after the UTRA ReportStrongestCells measurement report. It is used to resolve
the cell identities of the strongest reported unknown PCI. If the ReportCGI measurement report contains
complete information (UTRAN-CGI, PLMN, LAC, and RAC) about the UTRA cell, the resolved UTRA cell is
stored in the eNB database (LNADJW). A new NR (LNRELW) is configured between that UTRA cell and the
eNB cell, which receives the ReportCGI measurement report.
Detection and resolution of an unknown UTRAN cell implies the exchange of the following messages and procedures:

System impact
Interdependencies between features
LTE42: DRX in RRC connected mode
The LTE908: ANR Inter-RAT UTRAN - Fully UE-based feature needs the LTE42: DRX in RRC connected
mode feature for the ReportCGI measurements. However, the LTE42: DRX in RRC connected mode feature's
flag does not need to be set to true.
LTE473: Extended DRX settings
The LTE908: ANR Inter-RAT UTRAN - Fully UE-based feature introduces a new trigger for DRX
activation/reconfiguration. The LTE473: Extended DRX settings feature can run in parallel to the LTE908: ANR
Inter-RAT UTRAN - Fully UE-based feature without restrictions.
To use the new-found UTRA NRs for mobility features, the operator can:
activate the LTE783: ANR InterRAT UTRAN feature with a small number of neighbor cells to
configure the UFFIM and LNHOW parameters
manually set up the corresponding UFFIM and LNHOW instances

LTE782: ANR Fully UE based, LTE556: ANR Intra-LTE, Inter-frequency - UE based

Only one RAT ANR feature can work for a UE at one time. If several ANR features are active at the same time,
there is a round robin selection of ANR features per RAT to be used for each UE.
