We currently use Event A3 on our network but we are starting to explore the idea of using Event A5 instead for Inter-Frequency Handovers.
Our LTE network is still very much in the development stage as sites are being rolled out on a weekly basis, this will continue for the remainder of this year.
I would be of the opinion, which was established based on theory, that although A5 does offer some small benefits over A3, A3 would in fact be the better option for our network.
Can you explain what the benefits of using A5 instead of using A3 are and which would you recommend?
Also what changes in KPI's would you expect to see if we were to change from A3 to A5?
