INTRODUCTION
GPEH is a Performance Recording function which consists of two types of recording, User Equipment Traffic Recording (UETR) and Cell Traffic Recording (CTR) that supports Ericsson network. Xeus helps you to analyze calls, events, cells or phone models using GPEH data. It currently supports only Ericsson WCDMA network.

SUPPORTED FORMAT AND LOG FILE DATA


Xeus supports GPEH/UETR/CTR log file formats such as .bin and .bin.gz. They are usually grouped in sets and each set contains a reference file. The reference file contains links to other files in the set. It is mandatory to import the reference file for the set. The reference file usually contains 0 as part of its name. Refer to the picture below as a guide:

Each set of log file data should contain the messages below:
Message INTERNAL_ADMISSION_CONTROL_RESPONSE INTERNAL_CALL_SETUP_FAIL INTERNAL_CHANNEL_SWITCHING INTERNAL_CMODE_ACTIVATE INTERNAL_CMODE_DEACTIVATE INTERNAL_CNHHO_EXECUTION_ACTIVE INTERNAL_FAILED_HSDSCH_CELL_CHANGE INTERNAL_FAILED_TRANSITION_TO_DCH INTERNAL_HSDSCH_CELL_SELECTION_NO_CELL_SELECTED INTERNAL_IFHO_EXECUTION_ACTIVE INTERNAL_IMSI INTERNAL_IRAT_HO_CC_EVALUATION INTERNAL_IRAT_HO_CC_EXECUTION INTERNAL_MEASUREMENT_HANDLING_EXECUTION INTERNAL_PACKET_DEDICATED_THROUGHPUT INTERNAL_PACKET_DEDICATED_THROUGHPUT_STREAMING INTERNAL_PS_RELEASE_DUE_TO_CNHHO In Xeus Identify Admission Control Identify Call Setup Failure Identify Channel Switching Identify Compressed Mode Activation Identify Compressed Mode Deactivation Identify Core Network Hard Handover Identify failed HS-DSCH cell change Identify Failed transition to DCH in HS mode Identify HS cell selection involving no new cell Identify inter-frequency handovers Identify the UE IMSI Identify IRAT handover decision Identify IRAT handovers Identify Compressed Mode type Capture RLC and application throughput for PS Interactive data Capture RLC and application throughput for PS streaming data Identify Packet Switched RAB release due to a Core Network Hard Handover

IMPORT GPEH/UETR/CTR LOG FILES


You need to ensure the following before you import GPEH/UETR/CTR data: 1. log file format 2. log file set(s) contain mandatory messages 3. network data (preferably Ericsson Bulk CM) GPEH/UETR/CTR data is best analyzed when you have Ericsson Bulk CM. It will provide complete analysis for neighbor optimization. You can refer to Xeus Pro Quick Guide for further information on importing network data. Now, follow these steps to start importing Ericsson GPEH/UETR/CTR log files: 1. Go to File > Import and Export > Import Ericsson GPEH logs

2. Select Add Files and select the files which includes file 0. If you have placed the files in a folder, just select Add Folder 3. Browse and select files

4. Click Next 5. At General tab, set the Time Offset according to your time zone 6. Go to the Filter tab to select the messages you want to include when you import. You can also save this setting in a Config file and load it when you want to import again 7. Click Next and wait for the parsing to complete. If parsing is successful, you are ready to analyze GPEH/UETR/CTR data.

START GPEH ANALYSIS


GPEH database loads automatically together with its summary at the Project Explorer after parsing. Loading the database will also automatically load the Start Page.

Start page contains summary of Call Type and Call End Type in percentage, issues found and suggested actions for your issues.

Issue Analysis
Xeus allows you to analyze issues from Start Page. To analyze: 1. Select Cells with more than 3% dropped calls at the Issues section 2. View the affected cell(s) at the graph on your right. Mouse over on the graph to view the total dropped calls and percentage for each cell 3. Click on Analyze further with Dropped Call Analysis link at the Suggested Actions area. You will be directed to Dropped Call Analysis page

GPEH:

The QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE for XEUS PRO

4. At the Dropped Call Analysis page, right click on a slice at the chart and click on List All Dropped Calls at the context menu 5. You can view all dropped calls at the workbench. Refer to the screen below.

GPEH:

6. Click on the Load GPEH Views at your workbench. You can view events & messages and measurements for each drop call here. Refer to the screen above 7. Locate this drop call event on the map by selecting the drop call and checking at the checkbox on your workbench. Refer to the screen above 8. Click on the Actions button on your workbench and select Display route on Map

9. Use your map and Google Earth to view event and route.

Neighbor Analysis
You can also conduct Neighbor Analysis using GPEH data. Types of Neighbor Analysis which could be done are: Neighbor Optimization Pilot Pollution. Neighbor Optimization Neighbor Optimization ranks the top neighbors for the cell and also suggests action to be done to the neighbor. To optimize neighbor for a cell: 1. Go to Neighbor Optimization page from Start Page at the GPEH address bar. Refer to the picture below:

2. At this page, select the Advance Settings button to set the multiplier to decide the ranking. Click on the Advance Settings button again to close the window

3. Click on the Analyze button 4. List of cells and neighbors ranked according to priority calculated from accumulated EcNoThr

5. Right click on the workbench to export the results to Excel sheet 6. Step through the neighbors to view cell location at the map or Google Earth. The example below shows neighbor priority changed from 6 to 4.

Pilot Pollution Pilot Pollution enables you to find polluter cells so that you can remove them to optimize network. To find polluter cells for each cell: 1. Go to GPEH Start Page > Pilot Pollution at the address bar

2. Set Ec/No Threshold value at the Pilot Pollution Statistical information page 3. Click Analyze to view list of polluted cells. Click on the + to expand and view the polluter cells for each polluted cell. The screen below shows polluted cell has been expanded

Any value more than Ec/No Threshold will be included in AboveEcNoThr and values below will be included in BelowEcNoThr. Number of events affected by the polluter cell and polluter cells will also be displayed at the workbench, Pilot pollution tab. 4. Step through the pollution list to view cell location at the map or Google Earth.

GPEH Search
This tool helps you to search calls or events. It is located at the Toolbox. Search by Call You can search by call using the steps below: 1. Select Toolbox tab on your left panel 2. Select GPEH Search menu and click on Search By Call

3. Select Call Start Cell 4. Click on Clear button as ALL is selected as default 5. Select a cell from the Call Start Cell and hit the Search button

6. Your result will display on the workbench at the Call Summary tab 7. Step through the workbench to locate the call. If there is no position info for the selected call, an alert will appear at the workbench.

Search by Event You can also search by event. To search by event: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Select Toolbox tab on your left panel Select GPEH Search menu and click on Search By Event Click on Clear button as ALL is selected as default Select an event from the Event Type and hit the Search button Your result will display on the workbench at the Event Summary tab Step through the workbench to locate the event. The event will be automatically displayed when you step through To view the route, click on the checkbox beside the event at the workbench. Then, click the Actions button and click to display route on map.
