    Hi all,

    i hope all is fine at your end, can any of you RF Gurus explain how does the Penalty Timers actually works, and implemented.moreover,
    is it ericsson specific or a generic, and what we called it in Alcatel

    Thanks in advance.


    Dear Ali,
    Penalty timer is actually used in calculation of C2. Well, this timer works/stars when the MS places a non-serving cell on the list of six strongest carriers. Value of this timer is broadcast on the BCCH. This works in Siemens Equipments.

    Case 1
    As long as the timer runs and Penalty Timer which is send on broadcast is less than 31

    Case 2
    If the timer has expired and Penalty Timer is less than 31

    Case 3
    If Penalty Timer is equal to 31
