GSM TA This command is not applicable to GSM.
 

 GPRS TA

 This command is not applicable to GPRS.

 

 EGPRS TA

 This command is not applicable to EGPRS.

 

 GSM/GPRS LA

 This command sets/queries the Paging Identity Type parameter.

 The Paging Identity Type setting determines whether the mobile station is paged using its IMSI or TMSI. This parameter can only be set while the Call Status is Idle and the Data Connection Status is Idle. When there is a service request for a MT Point-to-Point SMS (GPRS transport type), the identifier type used is P-TMSI (Packet TMSI), regardless of the setting for this parameter.

 If you wish to page the mobile station using a TMSI, it is strongly recommended that the TMSI value be allocated to the mobile station when it registers with the test set to ensure that the mobile station recognizes the TMSI value used in the CS page request. The TMSI is allocated to the mobile station when it registers to the test set if TMSI Assignment is set to On . See Paging Parameters for more information.

 The command to set the TMSI Assignment is CALL[:CELL]:TMSI:ASSignment .

 The command to set the TMSI value is CALL[:CELL]:TMSI[:VALue] .

 Programming Example

 
OUTPUT 714;"CALL:PAGing:IDENtity TMSI" 
! Set paging identity to TMSI 

 CALL:PAGing:IMSI

 Function

GSM TA

 Sets/queries the paging IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) field, used for paging the MS. The test set will stay in Active Cell Status (Setup Request), see Call Processing State Synchronization until the paging IMSI is returned if the state is on.

 The paging IMSI is automatically updated by the test set during an MS originated call using the IMSI reported by the MS. If the MS has no SIM, the paging IMSI is left unchanged.

 CALL:PAGing:MODE

 Function

 

GSM TA

 Sets/queries the paging mode that the test set will use to page the MS. Some mobile stations can be set to a discontinuous reception mode (DRX), which configures the MS to look for a page in a pre-defined paging subchannel only.

 When paging mode is set to Reorg (DRX off), the test set will page the MS on the paging channel in the next available paging subchannel without waiting for the defined paging group.

 When paging mode is set to Normal (DRX on), the test set will page the MS on the correct paging subchannel defined by the mobile station's paging group.

When paging mode is set to EXTended, the test set will page the MS on the correct paging subchannel defined by the mobile station's paging group and also in another paging subchannel. This mode is used when there is a temporary overload on some of the subchannels. If PBCCH and PCCCH are present in the cell, the MS decodes an additional subchannel that is located on the third PPCH after the PPCH corresponds to the MS paging group. If PBCCH and PCCCH are not present in the cell, the MS decodes an additional paging subchannel, which is identified as the next PCH after the paging subchannel corresponds to its paging group.

 CALL:PAGing:MFRames

 Function

 

GSM TA

 Sets/queries the number of multiframes between paging subchannels.

 This parameter is used when the paging mode is normal. MFRames and IMSI are used to define the mobile station's paging group. The paging group determines when an MS can expect a page if paging mode is normal.

CALL:PAGing:REPeat:COUNt

Function

GSM TA Sets/queries the most times the test set keeps paging the MS before the MS responds.
When the value is set to 0, it keeps paging until the MS reponds.
This setting can only be set when Repeat Paging state is On.
