Is there any impact of PHR (Power Head Room) on the data throughput ?

What is the use of PHR ? Is there any default configuration or eNodeB can change on the FLY ?

PHR gives info on remaining power at UE can be utilized for UL TX(PUSCH), eNB can use PHR to give more grant to UE or UL grant can be reduced if PHR is low. In this way PHR reporting used to enhance in data throughput.

Yes, PHR should have impact on UL throughput. PHR effectively tells the eNodeB how much power headroom UE has, at current UL MCS and pathloss level. For e.g. a PHR <= 23 tells that the UE is capping and so, eNodeB may have to give a lower MCS or number of RBs.

What do you mean by "Is there any default configuration or eNodeB can change on the FLY ?" PHR is reported by UE. I have explained the effect of PHR on UL scheduling in the first para, the exact implmentation choice is left to eNodeB's design.

In an effort to improve User End Throughput, we decided to increase the available power within LTE 800Mhz cells from 20W to 40W.

The power increase on the L800 cells involved removing the existing 3dB attenuation and also modifying the power of the reference signal per resource grid, such that we simply maintained the same cell radius whilst increasing the available power inside it from 20W to 40W.

The results from the trial haven't been as favourable as we hoped it would be, the increase in the User End Throughput was between 5-10%, while small improvements were also seen with CQI and PDSCH but overall the improvements have been disappointing.

Has anyone carried out similar changes in the past and if so what type of increase in the User End Throughput was observed. Also if anyone has any helpful documentation that compares User Throughput against Power Increase that would also be very helpful. We have arrived at a bit of dead end with this one so any feedback would be gratefully appreciated.

How does the Uplink throughput affect if the extended cell range is turned on? Do we have any calculation to understand it?
