    When MS is in IDLE mode and camped on cell, BCCH Allocation List will be broadcasted on BCCH giving mobiles the frequencies of the BCCH carriers on neighbouring cells.

    My question is “the BCCH frequecy should be the same operator PLMN of current Serving Cell or any PLMN’s ARFCN?”

    Hi Sri
    do you mean the neighbour cell list?
    In case they are ARFCNs of the candidate target cells for handover.
    It makes sense for the network to fill it with neighbours belonging to the same PLMN.
    ARFCNs belonging to other PLMNs are unknown to the network.

    Hi Sri,

    You can and should define interPLMN idle neighbours, that makes no problem at all. For example, at country border, there is no reason why you wouldn’t want your MS to have a smooth transition to the next country network.
    However,
    1/ You should ensure that your IMSI’s are authorized to attach to the neighbour PLMN.
    2/ Adding those neighbours mean you will provide roaming traffic to the neighbour PLMN. That should not be for free. (“Roaming agreements”). At least, you should get reciproqual incoming relations.
    3/ If the neighbour operator changes its frequency planning, you should be informed.
    4/ Define the external interPLMN cell with a negative CELL_RESELECT_OFFSET (CRO=10 and PENALTY_TIME=640 –> CRO=-10dB), high RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN (-80dBm), in order to give it a low priority.
