Basic Cell Parameters

Physical Cell ID

Parameter Description
This parameter identifies a unique physical cell that can be included in only one cell
group. A system provides a total number of 504 physical cell IDs, which are classified
into 168 groups, each group containing three unique IDs.

When configuring this parameter, ensure that physical cell IDs should be space
multiplexing as planned.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Int (0, 1, , 503)
Default Value: 0

Configuration Principles
A physical cell ID should be uniquely assigned for the same frequency point in the same
geographical area or in different PLMNs (especially at the cell edge).

To separate the primary synchronous channels among adjacent cells, ZTE recommends
you set them to 0, 1, and 2 because a macro eNodeB consists of three cells.

Basic Cell Parameters

CP Selection for Physical Channel

Parameter Description
This parameter indicates the cyclic prefix (CP) of the OFDM symbol, which is used to
determine the total number of OFDM symbols within one slot. When this parameter is set to
normal cyclic prefix, it implies that seven OFDM symbols are available within one slot.
When this parameter is set to extended cyclic prefix, it implies that six OFDM symbols are
available within one slot.
he
Value Range and Step Length
Value Range: Enum (normal cyclic prefix, extended cyclic prefix)
Default Value: normal cyclic prefix

Configuration Principles
The CP is dependent on the multipath delay of a radio channel. In the presence of either
a large multipath delay or a large cell radius, extended cyclic prefix is recommended.

The extended cyclic prefix option can suppress radio interference caused by multipath
delay, but suffering from lower system capacity; and therefore it is recommended that
you set it to the default value.

Basic Cell Parameters

Downlink System Bandwidth

Parameter Description
This parameter indicates the system bandwidth in the downlink, which is used to
determine the frequency domain location of the downlink physical channel as well as
downlink frequency allocation.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (6, 15, 25, 50, 75, 100) Unit: RB
Default Value: 100

Configuration Principles
This parameter is dependent on the frequency bandwidth acquired by a mobile
operator. The downlink system bandwidth can either be identical to or different from
the uplink system bandwidth.

Modifying this parameter can have an impact on downlink resource allocation.

Internal Use Only

Basic Cell Parameters

Uplink System Bandwidth

Parameter Description
This parameter indicates the system bandwidth in the uplink, which is used to determine
the frequency domain location of the uplink physical channel as well as uplink frequency
allocation.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (6, 15, 25, 50, 75, 100) Unit: RB
Default Value: 100

Transmit Power).

This parameter is dependent on cell coverage. The greater the cell coverage, the greater
the value of this parameter is required. This parameter should be used for ensuring cell
coverage while achieving the maximum power.

A reference signal power value should be properly tuned in accordance with the required
power of the downlink control channel at the cell edge based on the link estimation
calculated by using such radio parameters as cell type, cell radius, and antenna height.

Sel_Qrxlevmin

Parameter Description
This parameter indicates the minimum required received power level of the cell
which satisfies the condition of being selected by UE. Only the measured received
power level of the cell is over Sel_Qrxlevmin can the cell be selected. Range of the
parameter is actual value which equals to double of value in 36.331.

Value Range and Step Length


int (-140, .., .-44) step 2 unit dBm
Default value: -110

Configuration Principles
For normal cases, the default value is recommended. In some urban area with a
few sites, the value of this parameter could be less than default value.

Internal Use Only

Q_RxLevMinOffset

Parameter Description
This parameter indicates the offset of the minimum required received power level of
the cell which satisfies the condition of being selected or reselected by UE. It will
affect the minimum required received power level in the cell. Range of the
parameter is actual value which equals to double of value in 36.331.

Value Range and Step Length


int (2, .., .16) step 2 unit dB
Default value: 2

Configuration Principles
Offset to the signalled Qrxlevmin taken into account in the Srxlev evaluation as a
result of a periodic search for a higher priority PLMN while camped normally in a
VPLMN.For normal cases, the default value is recommended. For some higher
priority PLMN scenario, the value could be greater than the default value.
(Depending on the coverage, loading, requirements of the high priority PLMN.

Internal Use Only

Qhyst

Parameter Description
This parameter indicates the hysteresis value for cells. In cell-ranking criterion R of
cell reselection, the R value of serving cell equals to the measured value plus the
hysteresis value. For detail description please refer to TS 36.304.

Value Range and Step Length


int (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24)
Default value: 3

Configuration Principles
This specifies the hysteresis value for ranking criteria of serving cell. If a cell is
ranked as the best cell the UE shall perform cell reselection to that cell.The default
value is recommende to be used in normal cases.The greater is the value of this
parameter, the harder to fullfill the reselection process.

Internal Use Only

Cell Selection and Reselection Parameters

ThresholdServing_Low

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the low threshold for the serving carrier when the low priority carrier or
system is selected and the following conditions can be fulfilled:

The cell without any high priority carrier or system can meet the cell reselection criteria for
escalating to a higher priority.

When the Treselection threshold is not exceeded, SServingCell is smaller than


byThreshSvrLow while SnonServingCell,x (low priority carrier or system) is greater than
byThreshSvrLow (including inter-frequency and inter-system).

The UE has resided in the serving cell for more than one second.

Value Range and Step Length

Value Range: Int (0, , 62) Step: 2 Unit: dB

Default Value: 0

Configuration Principles

This threshold is used when the UE evaluates and reselects a low-priority E-UTRAN or RAT
frequency point as the serving frequency point.

TheSServingCell threshold is applicable to the serving cell. When this SServingCell threshold
is reached, it is likely that the cell reselection will be triggered.

Internal Use Only

Cell Selection and Reselection Parameters

S_Intrasearch

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the intra-frequency measurement trigger threshold for cell selection. The UE
is used to determine whether to implement the intra-frequency measurement.

Value Range and Step Length

Value Range: Int (0, ..., 62) Step: 2 Unit: dB

Default Value: 14

Configuration Principles

When the quality of the serving cell is greater than the S_intrasearch value, the UE does not
implement the intra-frequency measurement.

When the quality of the serving cell is equal to or smaller than the S_intrasearch value, the UE
implements the intra-frequency measurement.

Setting this parameter to a too small value will cause the UE to fail in implementing the intrafrequency measurement in a timely manner, and thus failing to reselect an adjacent intrafrequency cell.

Setting this parameter to a too large value will cause the UE to waste battery resources.

Internal Use Only

Cell Selection and Reselection Parameters

IntraQ_OffsetCell

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the intra-frequency cell reselection offset that is used to tune
adjacent cells using the R criteria, and therefore it is comparable to the Qhyst parameter.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (-24,-22,-20, -18, -16, -14, -12, -10, -8, -6, -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1,
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24) Unit: dB
Default Value: 0

Configuration Principles
Do not set this parameter to a too large value. Otherwise, the serving cell is very poor,
but cannot be reselected.

Internal Use Only

Cell Selection and Reselection Parameters

Intra_Pmax

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the maximum available uplink transmit power, depending on
the UE type. It is used for intra-frequency cell reselection. If this parameter is void, the
UE will follow its own capabilities for further handling.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Int (-30..33) Unit: dBm
Default Value: 23

Configuration Principles
For more information, see page 12 (Pmax). The Intra_Pmax parameter is
dependent on the configuration data of adjacent cells.

Modifying this parameter can have an impact on SIB3.

Internal Use Only

Cell Selection and Reselection Parameters

The Timer for Cell Reselection in Inter-frequency E-UTRAN

Parameter Description
This parameter represents an inter-frequency cell reselection timer. Within the
TreselectionInterEUTRAN, a new E-UTRAN inter-frequency cell, which performs better
than the serving cell using the R criteria, can be reselected as a new serving cell.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Int (0, , 7) Unit: s
Default Value: 1

Configuration Principles
This parameter is comparable to the tRslIntraEutra parameter, which represents
an intra-frequency cell reselection timer. You can set it to a value that is equal to or
slightly greater than the tRslIntraEutra parameter.
Modifying this parameter can have an impact on SIB5.

Internal Use Only

Cell Selection and Reselection Parameters

Intra-frequency Cell Reselection Priority

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the priority for intra-frequency cell reselection. The smaller the value
of this parameter, the lower the cell reselection priority is.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Int (0, , 7) Step: 1
Default Value: 0

Configuration Principles
The UE can implement the cell reselection process for only E-UTRAN frequency points
and inter-system frequency points that have acquired the priority based on the
corresponding system information. However, the UE will never consider any blacklisted
cell as a candidate for cell reselection.

If an adjacent cell has higher priority than the serving cell during the cell reselection
measurement, the UE will unconditionally enable the intra-system or inter-system
measurement. A higher priority cell takes precedence during the cell reselection process.

Modifying this parameter can have an impact on SIB3.

Cell Selection and Reselection Parameters

Intra-frequency Neighbour CSG Cell Physical Identity Range

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the total number of CSG cells in an intra-frequency neighboring
CSG cell group.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (4, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 84, 96, 128, 168, 252, 504)
Default Value: 4

Configuration Principles
If this parameter is void, it implies that only one CSG neighboring cell is present.
The physical identify of this CSG cell is represented by the
intraFreqCSGPhyCellId_lowest parameter.

Modifying this parameter can have an impact on SIB4.

Paging Parameters

DRX Cycle for Paging

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the DRX cycle for paging purposes.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (32, 64, 128, 256) Unit: Sub-frame
Default Value: 128

Configuration Principles
When the UE is in idle state but the DRX is being used, the UE needs to monitor a
P-RNTI in a paging occasion every DRX cycle.
Modifying this parameter can have an impact on other UEs being in idle state.

Paging Parameters

nB used to derive the Paging Frame and Paging Occasion

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the nB that is used to derive the paging frame and paging
occasion, as defined in TS36.304.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (4T, 2T, T, 1/2T, 1/4T, 1/8T, 1/16T, 1/32T)
Default Value: T

Configuration Principles
This parameter is an integer multiplied by T.
T represents a paging cycle. For example, 2T indicates two paging cycles and 4T
indicates four paging cycles.

Internal Use Only

Paging Parameters

The Parameter to Determine BCCH Modification Period

Parameter Description
This parameter is used to determine the BCCH modification period (BCCH modification
period = N * DRX cycle length for paging). The purpose of this constraint is to ensure
that all the UEs being in idle state can monitor the system broadcast change message.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (2, 4, 8, 16)
Default Value: 4

Configuration Principles
The greater this parameter, the longer the system message is updated. This can
have an adverse impact on real-time message update.
The smaller this parameter, the shorter the system message is updated. This can
cause the UE to monitor the systemInfoValueTag more frequently.

Measurement Parameters

Intra-Frequency Time to Trigger

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the time difference between event occurrence and event reporting.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (0, 40, 64, 80, 100, 128, 160, 256, 320, 480, 512, 640, 1024, 1280,
2560, 5120) Unit: ms
Default Value: [256 256 256 256 256]

Configuration Principles
The greater this parameter is configured, the more stringent the event trigger
requirements becomes. You need to configure this parameter based on the desirable
requirements. Setting this parameter to a too large value will have an adverse impact on
call quality.

The UE will trigger an event reporting only when the actual time reaches the threshold of
this parameter. This parameter is introduced to prevent the UE from any fraudulent
reporting caused by jitter. When configuring this parameter, you need to take the DRX
cycle into consideration.

Measurement Parameters

Intra-Frequency Reporting Interval for Event

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the time interval at which measurement results are periodically
reported after an event is triggered.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (120, 240, 480, 640, 1024, 2048, 5120, 10240, 60000, 360000,
720000, 1800000, 3600000) Unit: ms
Default Value: [1024 1024 1024 1024 1024]

Configuration Principles
When an event is triggered, the UE reports measurement results at time intervals. If
the actual value reaches the threshold of this parameter, the UE will stop reporting
any measurement result.

This parameter is valid only when the RptCriteria parameter is set to 0 (event
triggered reporting).

This parameter must be greater than the TrigTime parameter.

Internal Use Only

Measurement Parameters

Intra-Frequency Amount of Reporting for event

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the maximum number of reporting measurement results after
an event is triggered.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, Infinity)
Default Value: [Infinity Infinity Infinity Infinity Infinity]

Configuration Principles
When an event is triggered, the UE reports measurement results at time intervals. If
the actual number reaches the threshold of this parameter, the UE will stop
reporting any measurement result.

Do not set this parameter to a too large value because it is used for intra-frequency
handoff.

This parameter is valid only when the RptCriteria parameter is set to 0 (event
triggered reporting).

Handoff Parameters

Threshold
A threshold is used to evaluate signal quality (A5: absolute threshold, A3: relative threshold).

Hysteresis and Timer


Hysteresis and timer are used to determine whether to start or stop an event.

Hysteresis is used to retard the start or stop of an event based on a decisive inequation,
which can greatly improve reliability for decision making. Hysteresis is normally used in
conjunction with a threshold.

A timer is used to evaluate time-based constancy of a certain state (including the start or
stop of an event) for the purpose of improving accuracy and reliability for event reporting.
For this reason, a timer is irrelevant to a threshold.

Customized Handoff Compensation


It can be used to compensate either a serving or adjacent cell.

When being added to the measured value of a serving cell, a positive compensation
value is used to prohibit a handoff.

When being added to the measured value of an adjacent cell, a positive compensation
value is used to trigger a handoff.

Handoff Parameters

Time to Trigger

Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the time difference between event occurrence and event reporting.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (0, 40, 64, 80, 100, 128, 160, 256, 320, 480, 512, 640, 1024, 1280,
2560, 5120) Unit: ms

Configuration Principles
This parameters is used to determine the time required for reporting an event, at which
the measured value meets the event reporting criteria.

The UE will trigger an event reporting only when the actual time reaches the threshold of
this parameter. This parameter is introduced to prevent the UE from any fraudulent
reporting caused by jitter. When configuring this parameter, you need to take the DRX
cycle into consideration.

You can set this parameter to a greater value for a low-speed cell. This can avoid any
Pingpong reporting of measurement results due to signal jitter.

Handoff Parameters

Hysteresis
Parameter Description
This parameter specifies the hysteresis for event reporting decision in order to avoid jitter.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (0, 0.5, , 15) Step: 0.5 Unit: dB

Configuration Principles
Setting this parameter to a too large value will increase difficulty in triggering an
event; however, setting this parameter to a too small value will result in the
Pingpong effect.

This parameter is comparable to the A3 Offset parameter. Meanwhile, it can be


used to avoid frequent measurement reporting.

Internal Use Only

Handoff Parameters

Report On Leave

Parameter Description
This parameter indicates an A3 event is leaving. It can be used to determine whether the
UE needs to report an event when the A3-2 criteria is satisfied.

Value Range and Step Length


Value Range: Enum (false, true)
Default Value: false

Configuration Principles
When this parameter is set to true, the UE will report an event if a cell meets the
A3-2 criteria.

You do not need to set this parameter is set to true if handoff is triggered by only
one measurement event reporting.

This parameter is valid for the ICIC feature, in which case you need to set this
parameter to true so that the base station can monitor the UEs profile change.
