The Page Throttling feature limits the number of paging messages going out of the SGSN. It provides flexibility and control to the operator who can now reduce the number of paging messages going out from the SGSN based on the network conditions. In some of the customer locations, the amount of paging messages initiated from the SGSN is very high due to the bad radio conditions. A higher number of paging messages results in the consumption of bandwidth in the network. This feature provides a configurable rate-limit, in which the paging message gets throttled at:
Global level for both 2G and 3G accesses
NSE level for 2G only
RNC level for 3G only
This feature improves the bandwidth consumption on the radio interface.
A RLF license is required to configure a RLF Template.
Relationships to Other SGSN Features
The Page Throttling feature inter-works with common RA paging, in which paging messages are initiated from both 2G and 3G accesses or vice versa.
Introduction of the Page Throttling feature does not result in any changes to the existing paging procedures.
