Can anyone please share the information on this that why Intra-cell Quality HO (Emergency HO)is not allowed in Alcatel when MS is in Inner Zone of concentric cell?21st May 2009 at 05:06 #57093pixGuest
I have a bad news… the intracell quality ho doesn’t exist.
The quality ho is always inter-cell. The intracell HO you are probably talking about is the Interference HO.
And it does occur in the inner zone, or in the outer zone, unless it has been disabled.21st May 2009 at 05:32 #57094A OptimizerGuest
yes, I know this.. My question is, ‘why it is not allowed’.. For example, if an MS is in inner zone of concentric cell and is subjected to good RxLEV but bat Quality (UL/DL), why it triggers Quality HO to other cell than to its outer zone? Why it is not allowed in GSM?21st May 2009 at 13:01 #57095PixGuest
Oh… It is allowed 🙂
The outer zone is considered as a possible candidate cell, if my memories are correct.
I will check it out for you.
By the way, it is not “GSM”, it is just the way Alcatel did it.21st May 2009 at 15:18 #57096A OptimizerGuest
I verified it in motorola as well, emergency handover due to bad quality is allowed only intra band, not inter band.. I dont get the logic behind this.. If an MS is subjected to bad quality, why not to trigger intra cell inter band ho rather than inter cell ho?.. Thanks for your support, I am waiting for your post =)21st May 2009 at 17:58 #57097PixGuest
There’s probably no logic in this choice, it’s just software programming. I assume Motorola engineers didn’t think about this case, or just didn’t implement it in order to simplify the code.
On monday, I’ll be able to confirm what I’m saying… but already I’m 90% sure 🙂
in case a MS is in inner zone of a cc cell (multiband or not), and if a HO Quality is triggered, then the outer zone is a possible candidate.25th May 2009 at 08:36 #57098PixGuest
Ok, here it is:
If a MS is in the inner zone 1800 of a multiband cell, then, the outer zone is a possible candidate during an emergency HO.
However, this outer zone is the last candidate in the list. If any other cell fits the requirements, then the MS will rather go there than go to the outer zone.2nd June 2009 at 12:29 #57099Bhai LogGuest
But then there are two points.
i) some vendors dont allow the same cell’s BCCH to be monitored when in Inner Zone. etc Alcatel ( motorola aloows depending on one parameter).
ii)Even if the cell is considered as a candidate its the last one. however its looks more logical that it be considered as the first.2nd June 2009 at 17:15 #57100PixGuest
1/ in alcatel, the bcch is not monitored during the call, but that doesn’t prevent the cell to be a possible candidate… the outer zone is *added* in the candidates list by the BSC. It’s not in the list of monitored neighbours.
2/ yes, being the first candidate would make more sense. People designing BSS software do not always choose the most logical solution 🙂 They wait for customers to complain :))
