0  IntroductionWord‑p. 4

The HS-SCCH is a downlink control channel used for scheduling HS-DSCH transmissions as well as for instructing the UE to perform specific actions via HS-SCCH orders.
The HS-SCCH is a downlink control channel that is monitored by the UE at all path-loss conditions within the cell. According to current observations the HS-SCCH can become limiting and costly in bad radio conditions since the power invested in the HS-SCCH limits the available power for the HS-PDSCH.
The decoding of the HS-SCCH is performed by testing against all the codewords that can be carried over the HS-SCCH since any of those codewords could have been transmitted in downlink. Nonetheless an important aspect to consider is that under bad radio conditions only a small subset of the codewords carried over the HS-SCCH can occur in practice.
This is something that can be considered to enhance and simplify the decoding of the HS-SCCH channel.

1  ScopeWord‑p. 5

The present document refers to a study on a simplified HS-SCCH for UMTS, which is aimed at simplifying the decoding of the HS-SCCH Type 1 for UEs undergoing bad radio conditions.

4  Objectives

The objectives of this SI are [2]:
  • Study the feasibility and benefits of introducing a simplified version of the HS-SCCH Type1 where some of the control information bits carried on the HS-SCCH part I are made deterministic (e.g., CCS bits and MS bit). The following aspects shall be taken into consideration:
  • The L1 processing chain as described in the current UMTS standard shall be reused and no changes are allowed (i.e., adding/removing blocks to the L1 processing chain is not allowed).
  • Keep backward compatibility (e.g., re-ordering bits within a slot, or from one to another slot is not allowed).
  • Study mechanisms for triggering the usage of a simplified version of the HS-SCCH Type 1, if possible by making use of legacy mechanisms.
The impact in other working groups, as well as on both UE and network shall be kept to the minimum.
