In case of an Intercell Handover If target cells list cnsists of a mixture of Internal and External cells for example no of preferred cells for Handovers is 6 and there are 3 Internal and 3 external cells in the target list what will BSC do regarding HO Required Message sent to the MSC ?
Say top most cell in the list is external, will it include just external cells in the HO Required message and wait for HO REQUIRED REJECT MESSAGE and then go for Internal HOs and would it be otherwise?
Answers are welcome for all vendors except Motorola.
Thnx 2112 for the question.
As per your example,say the order of preference is
then the BSC will send 1,3,& 4 cells as “No. of preferred cells” if NPC is set >=3 in BSC.But if it receives HO reject from MSC,it will impose a penalty on the candidate & go for “Int Cell” as per the list.
