This study proposes a performance analysis of the measurements mechanism applicable to the terminal controlled cell reselection algorithm in a mobile cellular communication system. The cell reselection mechanism decides on which cell, a user equipment (UE) is camped on, when it is in the idle mode. The analysis demonstrates the impact of the neighbour cells measurement threshold setting during the reselection on the serving cell pilot channel quality and a measurement effort in the UE, in terms of the time spent measuring neighbour cells. The authors demonstrate that there is a trade-off between the cell reselection performance, in terms of the signal quality during the mobility and the battery life in the mobile terminal with different system configurations. Furthermore, a novel approach and enhanced load based measurement threshold configuration scheme is proposed, in order to improve this trade-off and also the overall system performance and the user experience. Performance analysis results are given in different scenarios to demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed scheme.
