ABOUT THIS DOCUMENT


This Observation Counter Dictionary is a reference guide describing all GSM BSS
network observation counters managed through the OMC--R.

Applicability
This document applies to the V15.1.1 system release.
This document is part of the BSS Nortel Networks Technical Publications (NTPs).
It is closely associated with the following manuals:
The BSS Operating Principles manual (NTP < 07 >) describes general operating
principles and explains the mechanisms that enable Man-Machine interface
commands.
The BSS Parameter Dictionary (NTP < 124 >) contains all the parameters used
in OMC--R commands.
The OMC--R User Manual (NTPs < 128 >, < 129 > and < 130 >) is a
user-oriented guide to performing Human-Machine interface commands.
The BSS Operating Procedures Manual (NTP < 34 >) describes various
procedures that help users operate or reconfigure a BSS.

Precautionary message
The following message:

CAUTION
GSM--R specific
Indicates that specific equipment and specific software (such as
specific software in the BSC) dedicated to Railway application is
used and that the feature is therefore not available for all standard
GSM users.

Some GSM--R specific counters listed in this dictionary contain “(GSM--R V12)”
in the “Feature” field because they were introduced in V12.

Audience
This document is intended for:
OMC--R administrators
OMC--R maintenance attendants
GSM network engineers
users who want to know more about OMC--R

2--40 Observation counter incrementation and DFD Nortel Confidential

(1) When a TCH resource is successfully allocated internally in the BSC software,
the following counters are incremented:
1609/0 tchFrAllocatedTchAllocation (number of TCH/FR allocated for traffic in
the inner or outer zone of the cell)
1611/0 tchFrAveragedUsedTchAllocationMoy/Max/Cum/Ech (average number
of TCH/FR used for traffic in the inner or outer zone of the cell)
1812 allocatedCircuitTsMoy/Max/Cum/Ech (number of TS allocations for
traffic on circuit mode in the cell or
allocatedCircuitTsTrZoneMoy/Max/Cum/Ech (number of TS allocations for
traffic on circuit mode in the inner or the outer of the cell
(2) The counter incremented depends on the channel mode used (speech or data):
either 1197/0 (FR) or 1197/1 (EFR) for speech
or 1709 and 1705/n (n=0 to 6) for transparent data
or 1710 and 1707/n (n=0 to 2) for non--transparent data
(3) When the ASSIGNMENT_COMMAND message is received, 1049
attemptedTchFrSeizures (number of TCH/FR assignment requests) is incremented
and, if the MS is the dualband type, 1715 attempted TchFrSeizuresMsDualdb is also
incremented.
(4) When the STOP_MEASUREMENT message for the SDCCH channel is
received, if the BTS reports measurement counters, the BSC increments 1601,
1602, 1603, 1622, 1623, 1624, 1625, 1626, 1804, 1805, 1806, 1807 and 1808.
(5) The old (SDCCH) channel is released. 1050 successfulTchFrSeizures is
incremented and, if the MS is the dualband type, 1716
successfulTchFrSeizuresMsDualb is also incremented.
(6) When the old (SDCCH) channel has been released, 1607 counting the average
number of SDCCH used in the inner or outer zone of the cell is decremented.

2.3.2 MODE MODIFY procedure


This procedure is used to modify the coding/decoding/transcoding mode on the
dedicated cell channels used for sending speech or data.
It is also used when the MS initiates a call re--establishment request. In this case,
the BSC allocates a TCH for signaling and may use this particular procedure to
accomplish the transition from signaling to speech mode rather than the general
procedure which is much longer.

2.4 Handovers

2.4.1 Overview
Each handover procedure performed in a cell requires two phases, a selection phase
and an execution phase.
selection phase: choice of the target cell (outgoing handover) or radio channel
(incoming or intra-bts handover)
execution phase: switchover from one radio channel to another
The execution phase is not started unless the selection phase is successfully
completed as shown in the following diagram.

handover Yes: execution Yes: handover


SELECTION EXECUTION
request request successful

No No

call interrupted

SELECTION_FAILURE EXECUTION_FAILURE

The ratios between the following counters are used to evaluate the efficiency of the
procedures implemented in the BSS:
Number of handovers required (hoRequiredXxx)
Number of handover requests (hoRequestXxx)
Number of handovers executed (hoExecutionXxx)
Number of successful handovers (hoSuccessXxx)
The procedures call on the following counters in problem cases:
permanent bsc observation:
• hoIndicationNotTreatedTchoke
• hoIndicationNotTreatedTmtBtwHo
• hoUnsuccessReestIntraBts on TCH or SDCCH
• hoUnsuccessReestOutgoingIntraBss on TCH or SDCCH

2.4.2 Accounting principles


To synchronize accounting, all the counters concerned by the same handover
request are incremented at the end of the procedure, except for the counters used to
tally repeated requests and refusals, which are stepped up in real time.
The following diagram is an example of an outgoing handover requested by cell N
in BSS 1 that is refused by the first cell in the list (cell A in BSS 1) and executed
successfully in the second cell (cell B in BSS 2). It shows the counters that are
updated by the handover procedure.

2.4.3 Intra-bts handover procedure


In the intra-bts handover procedure, a dedicated channel is assigned in response to
a modify radio channel request sent by Level 1 (Layer 1 Management).

either 1197/0 (FR) or 1197/1 (EFR) for speech
1709 and 1705/n (n=0 to 6) for transparent data
1710 and 1707/n (n=0 to 2) for non transparent data
(2) DTAP is suspended.
(3) When the STOP_MEASUREMENT message for the TCH channel is received,
if the BTS reports measurement counters, the BSC increments 1198, 1199, 1600,
1622, 1623, 1624, 1625, 1626, 1805, 1806, 1807, 1808 and 1809/n
(4) ASCI counters are optional since they are related to the GSM--R functionality.
(5) When the deallocation of TCH is successfully performed in the originating cell,
the following counters are decremented:

2.6 SMS service


The SMS service uses a SAPI 3 session that is opened when the mobile is stable on
a SDCCH or TCH using a SAPI 0 session.
A communicating mobile can send a request to open a SAPI 3 session at any time.
The initial setup procedure described in the following diagram is exactly the same
as the immediate assignment procedure, but, in this case, the ESTABLISH
INDICATION message contains the information “short message”.

(1) : The internal counter 1057, allTchFrAllocatedTimeMoy/Max/Cum/Ech


(average and maximum duration during which all TCH/FR resources and PDTCH
resources configured as preemptable are used in the cell) is incremented after a
preemption nack. Two cases are to be considered:
In a cell with no resource PDTCH configured :
• When all TCH--FR resources are used, the measurement is started (when the
allocator sends an ASSIGNMENT FAILURE message)
• When a TCH--FR resource is free, the measurement is stopped and the timer
1057 is incremented by the value of the measurement
In a cell with PDTCH resources configured (all TCH--FR resources are used and
there is a PDTCH pre--emptable):
• A new request for a TCH/FR is received by the BSC => a GPRS preemption
procedure is launched and the PCU sends a TDMA_TS_STATUS_NACK.
.At this time, the measurement is started.
• The measurement is stopped as soon a resource is released or as soon the timer
GprsPreemptionProtection elapses. The counter 1057 is incremented by the
value of the measurement.

2.7.4 Counter behavior when GPRS is activated


The following counter definition table lists the BTS and BSC counters taking into
account the type of radio channel resource (TCH or pre--empted PDTCH). Their
behavior is not influenced by GPRS activation.
The behavior of the other counters not listed in this table does not depend on channel
type (TCH full rate or pre--empted PDTCH).
As a consequence, GPRS has no impact on the other counters (for example
those for the handover). Their behavior is strictly the same with or without
GPRS activation.
Note: GPRS activation means enabling GPRS calls when GPRS is configured.

Copyright © 2000--2006 Nortel Networks Observation Counter Dictionary


2--124 Observation counter incrementation and DFD Nortel Confidential

The counter definition table is made of five columns:


Counter: identifier of the counter
CCT: Circuit Calls on TCH Channel
• Concerns all circuit calls which will get a TCH traffic channel.
• Writing “y” means that those calls, at some point, will concern this counter.
Example: RACH access for Originating call will deserve a “y” because the
originating circuit call using a configured TCH Channel will have a RACH
that will be counted in counter C1027.
CCP: Circuit calls on PDTCH pre--empted.
• Concerns all circuit calls which will pre--empt a PDTCH Channel (to make a
TCH).
• Writing ”y” means that those calls, at some point, will concern this counter.
Example: RACH access for Originating call will deserve a “y” because the
originating circuit call using a reconfigured PDTCH Channel will have a
RACH that will be counted in counter C1027.
CP: Com Packet. Those necessarily take place on PDTCH channel.
Example: there will be a RACH access for those calls (“y” for RACH counters)
but no SDCCH assignment (“n” for SDCCH counters).

2.8 GPRS/EDGE Suspend and Resume


Two procedures are defined to suspend and resume the GPRS service during a CS
call:
Suspend/Resume, resume being done with Routing Area Update (RAU)
message (since V12). Refer to the two data flow diagrams presenting the nominal
case (Paragraph 2.8.1) and the failure case (Paragraph 2.8.2).
Suspend/Resume, resume being done with the Resume message (since V15:
Feature 25155: GPRS/EDGE Suspend and Resume).
• The procedure has to be activated using the “suspendResumeActivation” flag.
When it is de--activated or not supported, the first procedure is used instead.
• Every class B MS which is GPRS attached must suspend its GPRS service
when it enters dedicated mode (dedicated mode includes Circuit Calls and
also Location Area Update, SMS, etc.). When leaving dedicated mode, the
network can resume the GPRS service itself, thus avoiding the MS to send an
RAU to the PS domain, and thus saving PDTCH resources and CPU
occupancy in the PCUSN.
• Refer to the two data flow diagrams presenting the nominal case (Paragraph
2.8.3) and the failure case (Paragraph 2.8.4).

2.9.1 CPUE overload


The process that detects CPUE processor overloads in the BSC is built around a
counter that tallies the accumulated cost of transaction processing for calls handled
by the BSC.
Call regulation is triggered when the counter crosses a given threshold value, and
is gradually applied as the BSC starts to refuse new calls according to four defined
priority levels.

3 BSS OBSERVATION MANAGEMENT PRINCIPLES


This chapter contains:
a brief reminder of the principles underlying BSS observations (detailed in
NTP < 007 >)
a description of the structure and contents of the BSS observation counters, with
their accounting algorithms
the list of observation classes

3.1 Observation types (OGS, OFS, ORT, ODIAG, temporary)


BSS observations covers the following:
BSS permanent observation
• General statistic observation (OGS) (a preview of the report is visible in the
performance window at the OMC--R)
• Fast statistic observation (OFS) (visible in the Report window at the OMC--R)
• Real time observation (ORT) (a preview of the report is visible in the
Performance window of the OMC--R)
• Diagnostic observation (ODIAG)
Temporary Observation
• Interference temporary observation
• Abis Interface temporary observation
• SS7 link temporary observation

The BSS observations apply to the following BSC types:

BSC type
Observation type BSC BSC 3000
12000HC
OGS X X
OFS X X
ORT X X
Temporary Interference X
Temporary Abis Interface X
Temporary SS7 Link X
ODIAG X X

3.2 Observation management


BSS observations are activated by creating mdScanner objects whose
mdGranularityPeriod attribute defines the periods at which the observation
counters are read and transferred to the OMC--R agent.
When a BSS observation is activated, all the related counters start counting. When
the observation is deactivated, the counters stop counting; they are no longer
collected.

3.2.1 Observed entities


The observed entities are shared between three main groups:
Radio resources, including radio channels, serving cells, and neighbor cells
Data links, including A and Abis interfaces
Equipment, including BSC equipment, PCUSN equipment, PCM links, and
BSS/OMC--R link

3.2.2 Observation domains


The evaluation of network performance based on the results of radio entity
observation covers four domains:
traffic load
quality of service
resource availability
network configuration control

3.2.3 Observations and alarms


Observations can have an associated threshold.
Performance management can generate an alarm when a threshold is crossed on a
given observation. This mechanism applies to:
BSS GSM observations
BSS PCU (GPRS) observations (synthetic counters)

3.3 Observation counter types (totalizer, value, load)


Each observation counter has a header containing the following three fields:

COUNTER TYPE
COUNTER IDENTIFIER
SCREENING CRITERIA

COUNTER TYPE identifies the type of the counter:


totalizer (refer to Paragraph 3.3.1)
value (refer to Paragraph 3.3.2)
load (refer to Paragraph 3.3.3)
COUNTER IDENTIFIER identifies the observation counter. This identifier is related
to the counting function.
SCREENING CRITERIA is used when an event occurs which can be expanded to give
more information, and a counter is required to be maintained for each sub--class of
information.

3.3.1 Cumulative counters


This type of counter provides a raw count. It contains an additional field:

CUMULATED VALUE

The accounting algorithm is as follows:


initialization: CUMULATED VALUE = 0
event: add N to CUMULATED VALUE
collect:
• read CUMULATED VALUE
• reset CUMULATED VALUE = 0

3.3.2 Value counters


This type of counter provides average values from raw counts obtained by internal
sampling (the time interval between two events is variable and is not accessible to
users). It can also provide a maximum value.
It contains three additional fields:

CUMULATED VALUE
NUMBER OF SAMPLES
MAX VALUE (if required)

The accounting algorithm is as follows:


initialization:
• CUMULATED VALUE = 0
• NUMBER OF SAMPLES = 0
• MAX value = reference threshold (if required)
event:
• add N to CUMULATED VALUE
• add 1 to NUMBER OF SAMPLES
• if N > MAX VALUE, then MAX VALUE = N (if required)
collect:
• read CUMULATED VALUE
• read NUMBER OF SAMPLES
• read MAX VALUE
• reset CUMULATED VALUE = 0
• reset NUMBER OF SAMPLES = 0
• reset MAX VALUE = reference threshold

3.3.3 Load counters


This type of counter provides average values from raw counts obtained by internal
sampling (the time interval between two events is variable and is not accessible to
users). It can also provide a maximum value.
It contains four additional fields:

CUMULATED VALUE
NUMBER OF SAMPLES
MAX VALUE (if required)
MIN/MAX FLAG

The accounting algorithm is as follows:


initialization:
• CUMULATED VALUE = 0
• NUMBER OF SAMPLES = 0
• MIN or MAX FLAG = 1
• EXTERNAL SAMPLING PERIOD = T1
event:
• add or subtract 1 to/from VALUE (depending on maximum or minimum
count)
on external sampling period T1 elapse:
• add 1 to NUMBER OF SAMPLES
collect:
• read CUMULATED VALUE
• read NUMBER OF SAMPLES
• read MAX VALUE
• reset CUMULATED VALUE = 0
• reset NUMBER OF SAMPLES = 0
• reset MAX VALUE = reference threshold

3.4 Customized counter names


On top of its Q3 name, you can assign a customized name to any observation counter
at the SDO level. This customized name is defined at the SDO level and is kept
through SDO upgrades.
All counters added to the SDO counter list during an upgrade can get a customized
name at upgrade time. The upgrade procedure gets customized names from a
dedicated configuration file (/SDO/base/install/config/sdo_cntrs_list_FT.cfg)
provided by Nortel.
This file is a set of lines (one per Q3 name to customize) sharing the same format:
<counter Q3 name> # ”<counter id> <counter subid> <occurrence id> <type of
counter>”
To enable this feature:
1 Click the Data Format tab on the SDO MMI

2 Set the “Counter name” field to ”custom”

3.5 Maximum number of counters


A BSC can make a limited number of observations. Refer to the following table to
know about this limitations per BSC type and version.

BSC type BSC Number of distinct BSC memory threshold


version counters Ids observed
V12 200 900 (see Paragraph 3.5.2)
BSC 2G
V15 350 (see Paragraph 3.5.3)
V14.3 300 1500 (see Paragraph 3.5.2)
BSC 3000
V15 350 1500 (see Paragraph 3.5.2)

Table 3--1 BSC memory threshold

Two major constraints must be taken into account when running observations:
the number of counter Ids per observation type
a threshold related to the use of BSC memory

3.5.1 Number of counter Ids per observation type


For each observation type (ORT, OFS, OGS, ODIAG), a maximum number of
distinct counter Ids (screenings are ignored) is allowed.

3.5.2 Use of BSC memory


To ensure correct performance, BSC memory use must not exceed a limit given by
the following formula:
CELL_OFS + CELL_OGS + (NEIGH_OGS + NEIGH_OFS)*nb_neigh +
(TDMAcla_OGS + TDMAcla_OFS)*nb_TDMA_classes < BSC memory
THRESHOLD
If BSC memory use is greater than this threshold, a warning message will ask you
to remove some counters in the bsc counter list.
Name Meaning
CELL_OFS number of counter screenings (couple id:subid) per cell
on OFS observation
CELL_OGS number of counter screenings (couple id:subid) per cell
on OGS observation
NEIGH_OFS number of counter screenings (couple id:subid) per
neighboring cell on OFS observation
NEIGH_OGS number of counter screenings (couple id:subid) per

THRESHOLD refer to the values given in Table 3--1

3.5.3 DRAM limitation on BSC 12000HC V15


There is a limitation due to the DRAM available per CPU for observation. The
limitation is based on the formula below.
2 * (Cumulative + Value + Load) < THRESHOLD

3.6 Observation classes


BSS observation counters are classified as follows (in alphabetical order):
A interface
Abis interface
allocation (of radio resources)
assignment (of dedicated channels)
ASCI (GSM--R feature)
BSC equipment
BSS/OMC--R link
handover
interference
Layer 1 management (L1M)
monitoring (of common control channels)
PCM link
release (of resources)
setup (of calls)
SMS service

3.7 Mobility Class Sensitivity Counters

CAUTION
GSM--R specific

“Toggling” counters provide the operator with statistics indexed by the MS power
class (2 W or 8 W or 2 W + 8 W).
The QoS is measured by type of application:
train control with 8 W mobiles, and with a high QoS
shunt with 2 W mobiles, and with a lower QoS
The operator can toggle between ignoring/taking into account the power class
criterium at the OMC-R. The incrementation of “toggling” counters depends on the
value of the msPowerClassToggle parameter (settable by the operator on the bts
object at the OMC--R). The default value of the msPowerClassToggle parameter is
“2W + 8W”. The operator can set it either to “2W” or to “8W”.

Copyright © 2000--2006 Nortel Networks Observation Counter Dictionary


3--12 BSS Observation management principles Nortel Confidential

To get significant measures, it is recommended to:


1 stop observation counters.

2 toggle the power class criterium.

3 start observation counters again.

Note: A synthetic counter can be used as a “toggling” counter only if all the
counters that are part of the formula are “toggling” counters themselves.
Hence, if one counter is not a “toggling” counter, then the synthetic counter
is valid only if the msPowerClassToggle parameter is set to “2W + 8W”.

The list of toggling counters is provided in Table 3--2:
