Reply To: What is Soft Blocking and Hard Blocking

Wallis Dudhnath

Hard blocking describes the situation when NO RADIO Resources are
assigned after the GPRS/EDGE/etc.. service request in Data Services and access to Data services is denied.
For instance, if we consider a case when a user requests resource for
Data Service access and no resources at all are assigned, this is deemed as Hard Blocking.

Soft blocking considered the scenarios that allocated channel numbers does not meet the MS multi time slot
capability after data service has established i.e. Soft blocking
where users are assigned a “PORTION” of the resources they request.
