hi lily 🙂
i’m in a hurry…
Gb traces are used to find out the real network response time, that’s all… IMO, it is useless 🙂
The TBF is not a physical resource ! When it is released, it doesn’t provide more capacity to other users… If no data is sent, delayed TBF is active but “empty” = not using any of its PDCH. The PDCH are therefore used by other TBF.
So, no, the quicker TBF deallocation will only decrease the drop. I must emphasize that you will degrade the QoS from subscriber point of view.
Drop = better
Subscriber = unhappy because service is slower
Unfortunately this “reactivity” is not seen in the NPO’s KPI. (however, have a look to GPRS indicators with the name “active” “delayed” “optimal”), whereas the drops are clearly seen.
Drops are not everything !
I’m going to russia on monday, but it is not for your company 🙂
