BSS20776 AMR Progressive Power Control
-ntroduction
AMR Progressive Power control (AMR PPC) is enhancement to the existing Power
Control (PC) algorithm running in the BSC and controlling the transmitting power of
the MS and BTS.
AMR PPC is application software in S13 and it contains two separate functionalities
which can be separately controlled with Licence and Feature Handling MML
(LFHMML).
- AMR PPC for MS power controlling
- AMR PPC for BTS power controlling
AMR PPC algorithm will be used only for AMR calls. When the AMR PPC algorithm
is disabled, the normal PC algorithm is used also for AMR calls.
AMR PPC introduces one new measurement type, The AMR PPC Measurement.
The new measurement is for measuring the average signal quality vs. power level
distribution in TRX level.

n AMR PPC algorithm, the algorithm internally changes the thresholds for quality based PC
according to AMR PPC parameters and actual transmitting power. t is possible to define 4 power
level points, where power control quality thresholds are changed. The changes of power control
quality thresholds in AMR PPC algorithm are fixed to be -2, -1, 0, +1, +2 depending on the current
power level.

-Benefits
n the AMR PPC the idea is to change quality thresholds depending on used power
level so that AMR PPC favour increase of power with low power levels and avoid
increase of power with higher power levels. Following results are striven by this:
- Better power distribution introducing less interference to the network
- Better quality distribution yielding to better speech codec distribution
The aim of this feature is get some capacity gain and decrease Dropped Call Rate
(DCR).

HW/SW Requirements & Licensing
BSC HW: no special requirements
BSC SW: S13
BSC Application SW: licence for AMR PPC and licence for AMR FR or/and AMR HR
required.
Other NW elements: NetAct OSS4.2
MS requirements: AMR capability

BSS20776 AMR Progressive Power Control
Activation and operation
Valid licence for AMR FR or AMR HR must be installed and one or both of those
features must be active before activation of AMR PPC.
When valid AMR PPC licence is installed to BSC then the feature states of AMR
PPC for UL and AMR PPC for DL can be changed ON, CONF or OFF via platform
feature management.
- feature code for DL AMR PPC -> fc_t_amr_ppc_dl_c = 578
- feature code for UL AMR PPC -> fc_t_amr_ppc_ul_c = 606
ampIe:
ZW7M:FEA=578:ON;
Counters of AMR PPC measurement are available after the AMR PPC
measurement modification and starting. The measurement can't be modified or
started if both of AMR PPC features (AMR PPC for UL and AMR PPC for DL) are
in OFF state.

How to test
AMR FR feature must be active in the BSC before AMR PPC algorithm can be used
for AMR FR calls and AMR HR feature must be active in the BSC before AMR PPC
algorithm can be used for AMR HR calls.
Validation tests for new radio network parameters (in case of Plan Provisioning) are
not done in FT phase, so this functionality must be tested extra carefully in MT
phase.
t must be tested that the new parameters related to this feature are invisible if there
are no valid AMR PPC and AMR licences.
t must be tested that the BSDATA has the default values of new parameters for
BSC object after upgrade to S13 level BSC SW.
t must be tested that MS power is controlled according AMR PPC related
parameters in case of AMR call. must also be tested that new MS power level after
MS power control triggering is calculated according AMR PPC algorithm.
t must be tested that BTS power is controlled according AMR PPC related
parameters in case of AMR call. t must also be tested that new MS power level
after MS power control triggering is calculated according AMR PPC algorithm.

How to test
Functionality and handling of the new measurement AMR PPC must be tested.
t must be tested that normal PC algorithm is used for AMR calls if AMR PPC
feature state is changed to 'CONF' or 'OFF'. When both, AMR PPC for DL and AMR
PPC for UL feature states are changed to 'OFF' also AMR PPC measurement stops
automatically (f it has been activated before).
t must also be tested that AMR PPC algorithm for certain direction (UL/DL) can be
disabled separately so that normal PC algorithm is used for disabled direction.

New Parameters
All 32 new AMR PPC parameters are for defining power level points where the PC quality
thresholds will changes. There is 4 power level points e.g. AMR FR Upper Power Control
quality threshold for Uplink direction etc. Quality thresholds are changed depending on AMR
PPC parameter and measured transmitting power, so that they are either reduced by 2 or 1
OR increased by 1 or 2.
Range for all new AMR PPC parameters is from 0 to 15 and it covers power levels from the
maximum power level to the minimum power level.
Parameters are numbered from 1 to 4, e.g. AMR PPC DL FR Lower Threshold 1, AMR PPC
DL FR Lower Threshold 2, AMR PPC DL FR Lower Threshold 3 and AMR PPC DL FR Lower
Threshold 4.
Example:
f measured BTS transmitting power is smaller than AMR PPC DL FR Lower Threshold 1 -> Power Control Quality threshold
for AMR FR is reduced by 2 (LDRF - 2)
OR
f measured BTS transmitting power is smaller than AMR PPC DL FR Lower Threshold 2 -> Power Control Quality threshold
for AMR FR is reduced by 1 (LDRF - 1)
OR
f measured BTS transmitting power is bigger than AMR PPC DL FR Lower Threshold 3 -> Power Control Quality threshold for
AMR FR is reduced by 2 (LDRF + 1)
OR
f measured BTS transmitting power is bigger than AMR PPC DL FR Lower Threshold 4 -> Power Control Quality threshold for
AMR FR is reduced by 1 (LDRF + 2)

Statistics
New AMR PPC measurement will be introduced for measuring average RX quality
class per transmitting power class distribution. Measurement consists of Rx quality
sum counters separately for uplink and downlink. Furthermore for each RX quality
sum counter there is a sample number counter (denominator) indicating the
numbers of samples in each RX quality class sum counter. There are these 4
counters for each transmitting power class (0-15). Counters can be utilized in post
prosessing for calculating the actual average values by dividing the sum counter
with amount of samples. Also counters for serving BTS, serving TRX, frequency of
the serving TRX, frequency group and service area information (normal or extended)
exist, hence AMR PPC measurement has a total of 69 counters. Counters are
updated only in case of AMR FR and AMR HR calls.
The object level of AMR PPC measurement is TRX D.
RCSPRB updates counters during AMR calls.
