Cell reselection is done by first checking the :

PRIORITY
RADIO LINK QUALITY
CELL ACCESSIBILITY
PRIORITY

This is a parameter specifying the priority of EUTRA-FA(Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access-Foreign Area) during idle re-selection or mobility control information.

LTE cell re-selection uses priority based levels starting from 0 to 7 as per 3GPP 36.331 where Priority 0 is Lowest and Priority 7 is highest. This value can be seen in SIB3 as cellReselectionPriority Information Element (IE).

An example is shown for a multi carrier vendor is shown as below. The operator has 3 carrier 2300 MHz, 1800 MHz and 850 MHz which different Bandwidth. The Priority here is decided based on the channel bandwidth, highest channel bandwidth is given highest re-selection priority.

Cell Re selection is a procedure used to change the cell after the UE is camped on a cell and stays in the Idle mode.This procedure is used to let the UE get camped on a cell which has the best radio conditions among all the other cells on which the UE is allowed to camp on.

CELL SELECTION

UE performs cell selection based on RSRP level as per 3GPP Rel 8 or  consider both RSRP and RSRQ level as per 3GPP Rel9.

http://www.techplayon.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Reselection.png

The criteria for cell selection is that the Srxlev > 0 [Definition and details about Srxlev is available in the table below].

ParameterInformationSettings
Q_RX_LEV_MINThis parameter is minimum RX level required in a cell that is operating as EUTRA-FA and its unit is dBm (measured RSRP). Value is found in SIB 1 , SIB3 and is Calculated as Value in dBm/0.5-128 dBm ( IE value in SIB 1 is -64 )
Q_RX_LEV_MEASMeasured cell’s RX Level value(RSRP)
SRXLEVCell selection RX level value (in dB) measured by UESrxlev=Qrxlevmeas-Qrxlevmin(-128) Example Cell selection Criterion:
Srxlev>0
RSRP(Qrxlevmeas)>Qrxlevmin(-128)
      T_RESELECTION This parameter is the interval (timer) of reselection execution.1 sec
Q offsetOffset applicable to a specific neighboring cell used for evaluating the cell as a candidate for cell re-selection.
QHystThe parameter QHyst is introduced to prevent from ping pong re-selections2dB

The role of Hysteresis can be illustrated as follows

Case 1:

Hysteresis=0 dB, Measured value is fluctuating around the target value causing a lot of unnecessary measurement report

http://www.techplayon.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Hst-1.png

Case 2:

Hysteresis= 2dB, Even though the measured value is fluctuating around the target it does not trigger measurement report unless it fluctuates wider than hysteresis(Pink).

Cell Re-selection for Intra Frequency Parameters

  • S_INTRA_SEARCH:nThis parameter is the threshold value for intra-frequency measurement i.e it is used to trigger intra frequency measurements Actual value in dB is obtained by multiplying by 2.Corresponds to parameter s-IntraSearch specified in SIB3 Settings:31 ,62dB

Measurement rules for intra frequency cell re-selection 

  • Serving_Srxlev > Sintrasearch –  Do not perform intra frequency measurement for example: If measured RSRP of the serving cell is -80 dBm
  • Then Srxlev=-80 + 128= 48 [ Srxlev = Qrxlevmeas – Qrxlevmin (-128)]
  • Srxlev is 48 which is >31 (Sintrasearch Value) Do not perform intra frequency measurement

 

  • Serving_Srxlev <=Sintrasearch -Perform RSRP measurement for example :If measured RSRP of the serving cell is -100 dBm
  • Then Srxlev=-100+128=28
  • Srxlev is 28 which is <31 (Sintrasearch Value)


Perform intra frequency  RSRP measurement and 
Condition for reselection: 

RSRP Serving Cell+Qhyst< RSRP Neighbor cell -Qoffset during Treselection

http://www.techplayon.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/resel_1.png

Here Qmeas,n is RSRP Neighboring cell Qmeas,s is RSRP Serving cell. UE needs to camp on the current serving cell over 1 sec(T_RESELECTION)

Cell Reselection for Inter Frequency

  • S_NON_INTRA_SEARCHThis specifies the Srxlev threshold (in dB) for E-UTRAN inter-frequency and inter-RAT measurements.Actual value of threshold is the value * 2 (dB).
Frequencysettings(IE value)FormulaCalculated Value

Example

  • ServingCell<=Snonintrasearch (10*2=20) +Serving_qrxlevmin (SIB3,-64,-128 dBm) =-108 dBm
  • Serving cell RSRP<=-128+20=-108 dbm

UE performs target cell EUTRAN frequency measurement

  • THRESHX PARAMETERS: ThreshX parameters are used in LTE for idle mode cell reselection towards a different  LTE Frequency .We have 2 parameters ThreshXlow and ThreshXHigh .The 2 parameters relate to the target cell.
  • ThreshXHigh: The threshold used in the UE to reselect a frequency whose priority is higher than the current camped frequency.If the user has to move from a low priority LTE  frequency band  to higher priority LTE then the neighbor/ target LTE must have the Srxlev>ThreshXHigh.Settings 12/14

 Priority of the Target Cell is higher than the serving cell

Example 1: Serving cell Priority (6) <Neighbor cell priority (7)

  • Measurement Neighbor cell priority>Serving cell priority =Always perform inter frequency measurement
  • Condition for cell reselection: RSRP Neighbor /Target cell > target_qrxlevmin (SIB5,-64,-128 dBm) + threshXHigh (SIB5,14,28 dB) =-100 dBm

http://www.techplayon.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/resel_3.png

  • Thresh_Xlow:This specifies the Srxlev threshold (dB) used by the UE on the serving cell when re-selecting towards a lower priority inter-RAT frequency (SIB3)

Example Settings

FrequencyExample IE valueFormulaCalculated Value
230010Serving_Qrxlevmin -64 (SIB3) X 2 +

85012Serving_Qrxlevmin -64 (SIB3) X 2 +
ThreshServingLow 12 (SIB3) X 2
-128+24=-104 dBm

This value is found in SIB 5 .If the user has to move from a high priority band to a low priority band then the target low priority band must have  theSrxlev greater than Thresh_Xlow. The threshold used to re-select low-priority frequency from high-priority frequency.

Priority of the Target Cell is lower than the serving cell

Current Cell priority (7)<Target Cell Priority(6)

Assumption:Serving Cell:2300MHz,Target Cell:850MHz

Measurement

  • Serving Cell<=Snonintrasearch(12*2=20)+Serving_qrxlevmin(SIB3,-64,-128 dBm)=-108dBm
  • Serving cell RSRP<=-128+20=-108dbm
  • UE performs target cell EUTRAN frequency measurement

 Cell Re-Selection Both conditions have to be met

  • Serving Cell’s RSRP < THRESH_SERVING_LOW (10,10*2=20)serving_qrxlevmin (SIB3,-64,-128 dBm)=-108dBm
  • Neighbor/Target cell RSRP > ThreshX,Low (10,10*2=20)+Target_qrxlevmin (SIB5,-64,-128 dBm) =-108dBm
