Hi to everybody,
Could anybody please help me regarding the handover issue. What happen if we create neighbour but there is no handover at all. Will this create a load to network?
It would be very thankfull for the reply
no, it will not overload the system. the only negative impact is delay & bcch/bsic planning :
it will take a bit more time for the BTS to transmit the list of all neighbors to the MS (you can imagine the consequences… not dramatic, but you introduce a small delay)
don’t forget that you must avoid neighbors using same bcch. If you declare useless neighbors, it means you are artificially increasing the difficulty to reuse a bcch frequency… Knowing how complex can get a frequency planning, i would avoid wasting bcch at all cost !
You’re saying there is no HO towards those neighbors anyway.. if there is no HO, the only load is a “static” load, induced by the size of the neighbor list… This list is handled by OMCR, BSC and BTS. Not MSC (unless you define a lot of adjacencies between cells from different MSC…)
If there is a lot of inter-BSC HO or inter-MSC HO, then you will load your MSC. But only when there are actual HO requests. No request, no load.
