1 Introduction

1.1 Terminology
This document uses the following terms: Network Object Topology Tree Function A Network Object is the generic term used to refer to individual topology objects such as a cell, an RNC, BSS, BSC, BTS, adjacency or TRX. A topology tree is a tree displaying network objects. A function is the generic term used to refer to individual objects of a data group or analysis service class. So, depending on the considered domain, a function is a counter, an indicator, a design / logical parameter, an event, a rule, a synthetic diagnosis, a view template or a report template. A function tree is a tree in a mode displaying counters, indicators, parameters, events, rules, synthetic diagnosis, view templates or report templates. A Mode is characterized by: an Object Type, a list of available topology classifications for the objects of that type, and a list of available data/functions applicable to these objects. Typical modes for 2G are: BSC, Cell, Adjacency, TRX, Traffic Zone. Typical modes for 3G are: RNC, Cell, Adjacency. Depending on the selected mode, the user has a specific list of available topology classifications and functions. All available modes are grouped in the Mode Manager. Design Parameters Logical Parameters QoS Counter QoS Indicator Parameters that define the radio network architecture in term of coverage and mobility capability. Parameters that permit the telecom behavior optimization. They are also called telecom algorithm parameters. QoS Counters are used as building blocks in the formation of QoS Indicators. An Optimization Application view used to track the quality of service in a radio network. It is computed from Performance Measurements / Counters values, other indicators, or any other available network parameters values (e.g.: radio parameters). Reference Values Rules Excel files that express the default value that a parameter for a given network object should have. Excel files that express the dependency between two or more parameters of a given object, and are stored in the Oracle database. Events are historicized network configuration data keeping track of logical/design parameter modifications and/or topology modifications. In a topology or function classification, a filter is a set of criteria that can be applied on top of the classification. It allows hiding of objects that do not match the filtering criteria in the classification. In a view, whether on its own or in a report, filtering allows hiding of tabular data based on user defined criteria.

1 Introduction

Classification

A Classification defines how a set of objects are classified using some criteria.The result of a classification applied to a set of objects is a tree structure in which the objects are the leaves, and the classification criteria are the nodes. A Classification can be applied to Network Objects (Topology Classification), Object Zones (Zone Classification), and Functions (Function Classification). Typical Classifications are: flat classification (All classification), OMC classification (OMC/BSC/cell), by LAC, by frequency

Working Zone

A Working Zone is a set of criteria applied on the entire network to compute the sub-network that is displayed in the Analysis Desktop. The Global Working Zone is defined with no criteria and allows visualizing the entire network. This subset of cells can be: Global: All the objects in the database are accessible. User-defined: Using the Working Zone Manager, you define the cells that are accessible within a particular Working Zone. You can open only one Working Zone at a time on your workstation.

Object Zone

An Object Zone refers to the logical topology objects that allow the manipulation of a set of network objects as a single topology object. The Global Object Zone is defined with no criteria and allows visualization of the entire Working Zone.

View

A view displays the results coming from counters, indicators or parameters, in a tabular or graphical way. A view contains the network objects, functions, and Execution Context (period, interval, sampling, interpolation, reliability options).

View Template

A view template is a formal description of a graphical representation of QoS indicator or parameter values, depending on the type of view template. The view template is used when building a view. As a report template is composed of view templates, a report is composed of views.

Report

A report displays the results coming from indicators or parameters in view templates, in a tabular or graphical way. A report contains the network objects, views, comment zones, and an Execution Context. A report is also known as an executed report and is displayed in the report viewer.

Report Template

A report template describes a sequence of graphical representations of QoS indicator or parameter values. A report template is mainly composed of one or more view templates and comment zones. The report template is used when building a report. A report template is composed of view templates, as a report is composed of views.

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

1 Introduction

Execution Context

The Execution Context contains what is needed to obtain the indicator or counter values on a set of network objects, for example: periodicity (raw, hour, day, week, busy hours), time interval, sampling, interpolation, reliability options. When referring to the Execution Context, the spatial scope itself (set of network objects) is not included. The Execution Context is used when creating views and reports.

Comment Zone

A comment zone is an area of text that may be entered in a report template and is therefore displayed in an executed report. Comment zones are not mandatory. They may be interleaved with the view templates in the report template.

Availability Domain

This defines the availability of counters, indicators, parameters, view templates, and report templates both spatially and temporally. The availability domain of a view template is the intersection of indicators or parameters availability domain used in the view template. The view templates that are displayed in the mode RNC, for example, mean that the RNC is in the availability domain for the view template. The availability domain of a report template is the intersection of the contained view templates availability domain used in the report template. The report templates that are displayed in the mode RNC, for example, mean that the RNC is in the availability domain for the report template.

Tuning

Tuning is a preparation mode consisting of a significant set of modifications needed to correct misbehaviors of the network or to enhance its quality of service. A Tuning Session contains Tuning Operations such as parameter modifications or topology changes. A Tuning Session can be applied whenever necessary. All Tuning Operations are then be forwarded to the concerned OMC-Rs. All these operations have to be considered as recommendations sent to the OMC-R operator(s).

Diagnosis Scenario

Diagnosis scenarios provide information on the possible causes of a QoS problem and suggest ways to solve it. The result of the diagnosis appears in the executed view or as an HTML file. The following modes are defined: Detailed mode - when executed in detailed mode, the diagnosis scenario report contains a precise reporting execution description for each node of the scenario Synthetic mode - when executed in Synthetic mode, the diagnosis report contains a synthetic status associated with a description string for the whole scenario. The execution process is stopped at the first for the first error encountered Tuning mode - the diagnosis can be triggered for checking the Tunning Session.

Alerter

Based on the reported Performance Measurement data, alerters are defined to detect QoS problems and generate QoS alarms in the OMC-R. Collection of hardware and firmware information of the network elements, coming from the associated OMC-Rs.

1 Introduction

NPO is delivered by Alcatel-Lucent as part of different products: 9953 MP and also other OMC-Rs. Depending on the bought product and commercial option, not all modes and technologies may be available. For example, M1 9953 MP supports only GSM and W-CDMA; while OMC WiMAX W2 supports only NPO.

1.2.2 User Interface


Just as for its ancestor - the A9156 RNO, the user interface is a main asset of NPO. The user interface is intuitive, allowing the optimizer to interact with the tool in a friendly way, being provided with all needed information, commands, processing results. The NPO user interface uses the latest graphical methods to provide a clear representation of any kind of data. So-called gadgets are used to present objects (e.g. GSM or W-CDMA cells, QoS indicators, logical parameters, etc.) and sort data by different criteria. Gadgets are grouped into tabs according to their use (e.g. selection of cells and parameters, or display of QoS indicators). Data is displayed in tables or charts, and some facilities allow the user to quickly reorganize the user-interface look. The next figure shows the main MMI window: the analysis desktop.

Figure 1: QoS Analysis Desktop View The user interface is based on an object-oriented design, all actions being accessible through contextual menus. Depending on the selected object(s), only the relevant commands are provided. Most operations can be done through the drag-and-drop mechanism or with the help of menu bars and toolbars. The main NPO user interface (analysis desktop) is composed of five areas: Standards and Modes Browser Standards define the technologies available on NPO (GSM, W-CDMA, WiMAX).

Each standard tab has a set of modes. According to the selected mode, the list of displayed counters / indicators / parameters / reports / views is not the same. It is filtered according to their availability domain. Topology Classification Browser Radio resources (cells), as well as physical resources (BTS, NodeB, BSC, RNC) are displayed in tree gadgets and can be selected from there. Different tree gadgets are used to display the network resources by different classification criteria. The classification can be done for example by LAC, hardware topology, cell type, routing area (for GPRS). Function Classification Browser Functions belonging to a selected network resource from the topology browser are also displayed inside tree gadgets and can be selected from there. This area allows the operator to select: QoS indicators, QoS counters, logical / design parameters, or views / reports (grouped into families). View Browser The view browser is the target place for drag and drop of one or more network resources and one or more functions. It contains views that are used to display values of logical / design parameters, indicators, and counters. The displayed data in the view can be exported to Excel for further analysis. Two mode forms are proposed: tabular and graphical. Report Browser The report browser is the target place for drag and drop of one or more network resources and one or more views. A report is composed of several views, each displaying a set of defined indicators or parameters for a user defined report period. Data displayed in the report can be exported to Excel for further analysis. Tuning Browser The tuning components offer services to create, edit, and apply tuning sessions on tunable systems (OMC-Rs). A Tuning Session (TS) is a set of changes (object/parameters/adjacencies/frequency creation, update or deletion), it can be created, updated and applied. Detailed Diagnosis Report Browser The detailed diagnosis report browser gives information on the possible cause of a detected QoS problem, and offers hyperlinks to view the Python node code. Cartography Browser The geographical representation capability is a complement to the tree gadgets representation. GSM cells, W-CDMA cells, BTSs, NodeBs, BSCs, RNCs, MSCs, OMC-Rs or adjacencies are displayed with geographical maps in the background. Thus the location of the network elements, the sectoring, the type and the status of cells can be seen at a glance. This geographical representation offers zooming facilities and searching facilities (by dragging & dropping objects from tree gadgets representations).

1.3 NPO Functions


The NPO enables you to optimize: QoS analysis Reference values Rules and diagnosis Events Configuration parameters Tuning Cartographic display Network stability and availability, alarms Customizing.

1.3.1 QoS Analysis


The NPO collects periodical measurements of the radio traffic, radio resource usage, and handover behavior from the network elements through the declared OMC-Rs. These measurements serve the quality of service monitoring at the NPO, and back-office activities such as network optimization and network planning. The permanent network-wide QoS monitoring relies on the regular collection of the same performance counters on all managed Network Elements. Raw measurements are stored in the NPO database. Based on raw measurements, indicators are calculated and stored for up to two years. These indicators are consolidated in daily, weekly, and monthly values, and can be additionally consolidated on a group of Network Elements. The indicators correspond to high level information which can be directly managed by the operator and are defined by Alcatel-Lucent. The user can select and launch any predefined or user-defined QoS report. the NPO provides a powerful dynamic graphical user interface that eases QoS report analysis. For specific needs where the provided standard indicators are not appropriate, the operator can define via an Indicator Manager its own indicators called Customer Indicators. The NPO operator can display the results in the form of reports containing both tables and graphs (several indicators graphically displayed simultaneously). The customer can also customize reports, for an easier adaptation to operator needs. Special functions allow identification of the worst or best cells related to a QoS indicator, to get reports on the QoS evolution, and to compare the service quality of different cells. Comparing QoS indicator values with predefined thresholds, the NPO ensures rapid verification of the quality of service in each single cell.

1 Introduction

1.3.2 Reference Values


The feature described in this section is not yet available for W-CDMA. Reference values are recommended values of parameters. They allow a quick audit of the network and allow the operator to detect which objects are not following recommendations for parameter values. The reference values for a parameter depend on different criteria, such as cell type, cell class, frequency, BTS type, etc. NPO is delivered with a default set of reference values, which can be customized to fit the operators needs.

1.3.3 Rules and Diagnosis


The feature described in this section is not yet available for W-CDMA. NPO is used to investigate and diagnose QoS problems. Depending on the raised problem, it proposes some corrective actions and/or extra investigations. In order to benefit directly from any optimizers field experience, NPO allows integrating new diagnosis scenarios. Thus the network optimizer can rely on the diagnosis rules supplied by Alcatel-Lucent, but also on the ones derived from their own optimization experience. Whenever a QoS indicator reaches its alert threshold, NPO offers the diagnosis feature to the optimizer, in order to find out the possible cause of the QoS degradation.

1.3.4 Events
Events show when key information of a parameter (identifier, BSC, frequency), or topology (eg. Move BTS) is changed, based on the QoS evolution of the network. NPO is delivered with a default set of events.

Note:

For W-CDMA, only the following events are available: cell, adjacency, network element creation/deletion.

1.3.5 Configuration Parameters


The configuration function is used to verify the operational logical parameter settings. This is done by comparing the operational values with the reference values. Additionally, the operational cell design is verified by comparison with the planned design. In order to follow the evolution of the logical parameter settings, the imported operational values are stored in the NPO database. Appropriate reports can be requested at any time.

1 Introduction

1.3.6 Tuning
The feature described in this section is not yet available for W-CDMA. After a network optimization session is completed, a radio parameter tuning is performed using NPO. This is done in order to correct the network misbehavior and uses functions of monitoring, checking, and diagnosis. The NPO user can prepare radio resource configuration modifications, frequency changes and neighborhood modification and apply them through the managed OMC-Rs.

1.3.7 Cartography
Using the cartography module, the location of the network elements, the sectoring, the type and the status of cells can be seen at a glance. Cells, adjacencies, BTSs and BSCs can be displayed with geographical maps in the background, coming from RNP. The integrated cartography editor offers zooming, highlighting, searching, exporting facilities. Contextual menus on cells allow a quick identification of interfered cells, serving-cell area, neighborhood, etc. Finally, it is possible to choose any group of cells in the geographical re-presentation and make them selected in the different tree gadgets. NPO geographical representation supports standard vector formats.

1.3.8 Network Stability and Availability, Alarms


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. NUART (Network Unavailability and Alarm Reporting Tool) gives you the possibility to analyze and report system quality degradation, detect the impact on stability and unavailability, highlight faulty equipment, extract unavailability related to managed objects for a specified time period, filter and sort statistics. Based on the reported PM data, alerters detect QoS problems and generate QoS alarms.

1.3.9 Remote Inventory Data Management (RIDM)


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. NPO can manage the hardware inventory for Network Elements from the OMC-Rs that send data automatically. You can remotely read information about the needed equipment. NPO offers support for statistics, search, comparison with the list of allowed items called CAL (Customer Acceptance List).

1.3.10 Customizing
In order to allow immediate use of the NPO, all adaptable values are set with default values provided by Alcatel-Lucent at delivery. The customizing is performed by the operator, as specific access rights are required. The following values can be customized: User defined QoS indicators NPO users can create their own indicators when needed. QoS indicator thresholds The user can define three alert thresholds corresponding to three QoS requirement levels, for each QoS indicator. Views A view is an arrangement of consistent graphs and tables for a set of QoS indicators, parameters, and other functions. Four types of views are defined: standard, vector, and matrix and equipment. Apart from the specific case of Equipment, views can also be grouped into four types of evolution and comparison: Mono-Object Evolution View Multi-Object Evolution View Multi-Object Comparison View Mono-Object Distribution View. Reports A report is composed of one or several views, and enables the user to display results coming from QoS indicators, parameters, and other functions in view templates. NPO provides the five types of reports:

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

1 Introduction

Mono-Object Evolution Report Multi-Object Evolution Report Multi-Object Comparison Report Mono-Object Distribution Report. Warning Report. Working zones A Working Zone defines an area on which an optimizer performs his network optimization activities (network resource filter). Object zones An object zone is a user-defined filter that works on the current Working Zone. Topology classifications The topology classification defines how network objects are classified in a tree structure, depending on the selected mode. It isdependant on used technology. Function classifications The function classification defines how functions are classified in a tree structure. It is not dependant on the used technology. Free field definitions Free fields are attributes than can be defined on any topology objects (such as cells, BSCs, RNCs). Sorting and filtering capabilities can then be used to take advantage of the information provided by these fields. Parameter reference values The feature described in this section is not yet available for W-CDMA. The reference value of a logical parameter is the one recommended by the optimization expert. Parameter checking rules The feature described in this section is not yet available for W-CDMA. A parameter checking rule expresses the functional dependency between a set of parameters of objects like cell, BSS or adjacent cells. Diagnosis scenarios A diagnosis scenario is an analysis tree that contains ways to investigate a quality of service problem using the data available in NPO. Scenarios can be system or user defined. Alerters Alerters are defined to detect QoS problems and generate QoS alarms in the OMC-R, on the basis of reported Performance Measurement data, then automatically loaded inside the NPO. They are calculated from indicators.

1 Introduction

1.3.11 Advanced Optimization Features


1.3.11.1 Working Zones
Working zones are used to facilitate the work on a specific set of network objects and functions. They are sub-network definitions, the operator being able to work only in some Working Zones. When the user starts the Analysis Desktop, they select the preffered Working Zone to work with and they will only see the objects from this Working Zone. Working Zones are managed through SEC (Profiles/users relations), and can be created public or private. To define a Working Zone, a set of criteria on base objects (for example cells) is provided other accessible objects are deduced from this basic set of objects. The Global Working Zone is a Working Zone with no filter that contains all objects.

1.3.11.2 Radio Measurement Statistics


Even if the Radio Measurement Statistics (RMS) feature is a GSM-specific feature, NPO offers some services based on it because it is of prime importance for GSM operators and the aim of NPO is to offer all the means to optimize radio network whatever the used technology. Using this feature, the operator is able to: Detect interfered frequencies Assess the quality of cell coverage Assess the traffic distribution in the cell using statistics on reported neighbor cells Evaluate the voice quality in the cell. To Import RMS Template Values (GSM specific), refer to NPO Administration Guide.

1.3.11.3 QoS and Resource Unavailability Correlation


This section is not applicable for W-CDMA. When a cell has a bad QoS (congestion for example), it is important for the optimizer to know if this bad QoS is due to a pure radio problem, or to a hardware failure or maintenance action that led to the unavailability of the corresponding equipment. For example, if a cell with 4 TRX had 2 of the 4 TREs out of service during the day, there is a strong probability that there would have been some congestion during this period. LASER calculates unavailability indicators based on information collected from the managed OMC-Rs, which are then imported in NPO. Each indicator reflects the availability percentage of the corresponding resource (cell or TRX, for example). The operator can display these indicators or use them as an optional filter for warning reports (for example, to display the 20 worst cells of the Working Zone, in terms of congestion, and having an unavailability less than 5% during the day).

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

1 Introduction

1.3.11.4 User Defined Indicators


The NPO provides a rich set of default QoS indicators that allow the optimizer to carefully follow the networks quality of service and take corrective actions in case they are not optimal. At the same time, it also allows operators to define their own QoS indicator formulas, using a graphical editor. Once the indicators are created, they are available for all QoS related functions, such as QoS reports. Alcatel-Lucent delivers its own set of indicators (system indicators), but the operator can create its own (customer indicators). The threshold of system indicators can be updated by the optimizer.

1.3.11.5 User Defined Rules


NPO interface allows changing the rules applicable and checked on parameters. Rules are the dependencies between two or more parameters of a given network object (for example, a timer must be higher than another). The format of the rules file is Microsoft EXCEL. Default rules are provided with the system, but they can also be changed to better suit the customer needs. The maximum value of rules provided within the NPO application (per RNS/BSS release) is 200. The operator can create up to 50 rules.

1.3.11.6 User Defined Diagnosis


NPO investigates the causes of QoS weaknesses for particular QoS indicators and complex rules, using predefined diagnosis scenarios. It then suggests corrective actions and/or further investigation. System diagnosis scenarios are provided by the NPO, but optimizers can create their own diagnosis scenarios, using the Eclipse editor. The procedure is explained in the NPO Diagnosis Development Guide.

1.3.11.7 User Defined Thematic Layers


Thematic layer is a feature that allows the user to visualize QoS information on the geographical representation. Its purpose is to color parts of the geographical representation, according to user requests on the QoS indicators, parameter values, analysis results, etc. NPO provides a thematic layer editor where each operator is free to enter his own requests and the associated colors depending on the results. The product is delivered with some default layers like traffic distribution or frequency reusing. The results are mapped on cell contours (when analysis is done on cells) to provide a good representation, even at low zoom level.

1.3.11.8 User Defined Topology Objects


Besides the imported topology objects, the customer can create their own. The procedure is defined in NPO Administration Guide, chapter Customer Topology Objects Management.

The Indicator Editor window opens, displaying the properties of the selected indicator.

2.7 Create and Execute Reports


Reports are created to display QoS reports based on users own selections. A report is composed of graphs and tables, each displaying a set of defined QoS functions for a selected set of network resources and the defined report period (See Create Report (Section 19.2.2)). For an easier adaptation to operator needs, the operator can customize QoS reports. (See Edit Report (Section 19.2.4)) NPO provides five types of QoS reports: mono-object evolution report, multi-object evolution report, multi-object comparison report, multi-object distribution report, and warning reports. The user may choose to: Execute Report (Section 19.3), or Schedule Reports (Section 19.3.4) After their execution, the reports are made available in a repository.

2.8 Diagnose QoS Problems


In case a QoS weaknesses is detected in NPO, the diagnosis function is used to find its root cause and propose corrective actions and/or further investigation. NPO has its own system diagnosis scenarios, but the operator can create their own to better suit their needs. For this, Open Diagnosis Editor (Section 21.4), then refer to the Create Scenario procedure explained in NPO Diagnosis Development Guide. To trigger an investigation of the identified QoS problems, execute a view in: Synthetic Mode (Section 21.5.1), for a short presentation of where the problem is

2.9 Tuning
NPO uses the results from the optimized reports to tune the radio configuration. You can then define and propose network modifications to the OMC-R operator, such as: Create Parameter Tuning Operation(s) (Section 22.5.9) Create Topology Relation Tuning Operation(s) (Section 22.5.10) Create Frequency Tuning Operation(s) (Section 22.5.11) Create Advice Tuning Operation(s) (Section 22.5.12) The tuning session is then applied (see Apply Tuning Session (Section 22.3.6)). NPO generates tuning files, which can be viewed and exported to the OMC-R.

2.10 Cartography
NPO offers a geographical representation capability for its network objects. Before being able to visualize the layers, the administrator has to import raster and vector file - these procedures are explained in the NPO Administration Guide, chapters Import Vector File and Import Raster File. The operator may then: Add Layer in Layer Manager Add Network Objects in Viewport Perform the needed operations with the displayed result: Pan Rendering Viewport Zoom In/Out/Rectangular Single/Circular Selection Highlight Network Objects Compute Distance Between Points/ Network Objects, etc. Propagate Network Objects Selection from Cartographic Viewer into Mode Propagate Executed View to Highlight Network Objects in Cartography Export Displayed Layers/Viewport (Section 23.3.8)

2.11 QoS Analysis Using THL


The values of logical/design parameters, QoS indicators, diagnosis, rules, geographic (ex: distance from the POI) and customer data (free fields) can be displayed graphically using Thematic Layers. Thematic Layers are used to display a visual analysis of one property for a group of network objects in the map window. NPO offers a default Thematic Layer when installed, but you can create, modify and delete your own. See Thematic Layer Template (THL) (Section 23.6).

2.12 Network Stability and Availability, Alarms


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. Based on the OMC-R imported data, NUART (Network Unavailability and Alarm Reporting Tool) monitors the system stability and availability, gathered under the generic terminology of system quality. The procedure to import LASER dictionaries is described in NPO Administradtion Guide, sectionImport Laser Dictionary. To load NUART data on demand, refer to NPO Administradtion Guide, sectionLoad Laser Data. NUART user application enables you to display various reports: Display Basic Unavailability (BU) (Section 25.5) Display Suspect Origin of Basic Unavailability (Section 25.6) Display Alarms and Logs (Section 25.7). You can also update these reports by: Manage Filter for Alarms and Logs (Section 25.8) Define Sort Criteria for Alarms and Logs (Section 25.9). Based on the reported PM data, alerters detect QoS problems and generate QoS alarms. You can perform the following operations using alerters: Create, Edit, and Delete Alerter Display Alerter List (Section 24.3) Display Alerts List (Section 24.4).

2.13 Remote Inventory Data Management (RIDM)


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. The HW inventory data of the entire network is necessary to prepare interventions on sites.

This section describes how to propagate a selection of network objects or object zones between topology classifications and zone modes. The following propagations are possible: Network objects to topology classification or zone modes Object zones to network objects Network objects to object zones. Propagate the required network object or object zone: 1. Click on the network object or object zone you want to propagate. If it is a leaf node, the object is selected. If it is a non-leaf node, all objects under that node are selected. It is possible to perform multiple selections and de-selections. 2. Drag the selected network object / object zone and drop it to a different zone mode or topology classification. During the dragging process, if the mode or classification are incompatible with the selected network object / object zone, the mouse pointer changes to . Continue the dragging process to an appropriate mode / classification,

To define the granularity of the executed view/report/function, the periodicity must be set. Periodicity choices are dynamic and depend on the intersection of availability domain of the objects (Counters / Indicators / Parameters) to be displayed. Depending on the selected view/report/function(s), indicator(s) or counter(s) or parameter(s), some periodicity units are grayed and are not available for selection. The periodicity options are: Hour, Day, Week, Month, 1/4 Hour, 1/2 Hour, Raw (available for counters only), Busy Hour choices, Trend choices (hours of day, hours of week, days of week, and days of month). This list may vary. For diagnosis, periodicity Less than Hour and Raw are not allowed. For equipment view, the available periodicities are H/D/W/M only. Periodicity is not needed in case of a parameter with no historical value requested, or in case of an Equipment View of Alarm (only H/D/W/M are accessible in this case).

3.7.2 Execute Reports Options


In the case of reports execution, two extra options are present in the "General" tab of the "Execution Context" window:

Immediate Execution Use this option to execute the report immediately. n this case, fill in the appropriate Date and Hour, and all necessary fields from "Options" tab. To Be Scheduled Use this option to postpone the report execution to a later time. A new panel with three tabs appears (Date, General, Repeat), as presented in the figure below.

Refer to Schedule Reports (Section 19.3.4) for detailed information on how to use this options.

3.7.3 Date and Hour


The following times must be set for the execution: Starting Date (From) - Date and time for start of view/report/function execution. Any date prior to 2000 is invalid. Ending Date (To) - Date and time for end of view/report/function execution, or for a single date time when multiple network objects and functions are selected.

Note:

From and To Date fields represent the start time of the last value to be displayed. For example, to visualize an hourly report with the following set times: From: 09:00 - To: 17:00, the hourly report displays values for the 09:00 - 18:00 interval. The dates chosen cannot be higher than the current day. If the ending date extends past the current day, then the ending date is decreased to the beginning of the period. The hour cannot be higher than the current hour -1 (except if the chosen hour equal to 0 oclock). If the user enters an hour higher or equal to the current hour, the hour is automatically set to the current hour - 1, if the hour is not equal to 0.

3.7.4 Trend
The following checks are done if a trend is selected: For the trend on hours of day, the period must cover at least 1 day (24 hours) For the trend on hours of week, the period must cover at least 1 week For the trend on days of week, the period must cover at least 1 week For the trend on days of month, the period must cover at least 1 month. Trend on hours of day and trend on hours of week are available if Hour period is also available. Trend on days of week and trend on days of month are available if Day period is also available. The following table presents information on the trend calculation: Periodicity Trend on hours of day Calculation There are 24 columns from 00h, 01h, 02h, 23h. The value at hour n is the average for all selected day at hour n. For example, value at 1AM is the average of the value at Monday 1AM, Tuesday 1AM Trend on hours of week There are 7 * 24 columns. The first column is the first day of the week (according to the system preferences) followed by and then followed by HHh. For example, if Monday is the first day of the week, then the columns start and end as: The value at hour n for day d is the average.for all selected week at hour n and day d

Periodicity Trend on days of week

Calculation The days of the week are displayed in 7 columns The first column is the first day of the week as defined in the system preferences. For example, if the first day of the week is Monday, then the columns

are: The value at day d is the average of the value at day d for all selected week. For example, value at Monday is the average of the value of Monday the 1st week and Monday the 2nd week. Trend on days of month The days of the month are displayed as DD. For example if the month of September is used, then the days are: 01, 02, 03, , 30. If, for example, the months of Sept Dec are used, then the days are: 01, 02, , 30, 31. The value of the n day, is the average of the value of the indicator at day n for any selected month. Table 1: Trend Calculation The trend calculation is not applied directly on the indicator formula, but on the stored indicators (basic indicators) belonging to the formula. For example an indicator I = A / B, where A and B are stored indicator, then a trend calculation on the indicator I become trend(I) = avg(A) / Avg(B).

3.7.5 QoS Requirement


The values of QoS Requirement are: Low, Medium, High, as previously set as user preference. This changes which values are highlighted in the view from the Legend, based on the threshold values per QoS requirement set in the indicator definition.

3.7.6 Interpolation
Interpolation is used to automatically complete the missing values in the data warehouse. You can either use the default interpolation on the QoS data, or select from the displayed list the first and second interpolation methods: None - only the existing values are used (no interpolation) Linear - the missing values are replaced by a linear interpolation between the previous known value and the next known value. The linear interpolation can be specific if the values before or after are not known. Only OK value - when a display period is not fully available, a NULL value is provided for that displayed period Extend - only the existing values are used and they are extended to the wanted displayed period

Zero - all the missing periods are set to the zero value Padding - all the missing periods are set to a padding value. This is zero by defaut, but can be configurable through the Padding parameter. Interpolation is only needed if there are indicators in the view and Allow Dynamic Interpolation user preference is true.

3.7.7 Sampling
When Sampling is set, if the value of the sampling indicator is smaller than the sampling value defined in the indicator, the values are displayed in gray. In the other cases, values are displayed in their normal style.

3.7.8 Reliability
When Reliability is set, if the value of the reliability indicator is wrong (not green), the values are displayed in italic. In the other cases, values are displayed in their normal style.

Note:

The chosen values are stored as implicit user preferences. When the same screen is reopened, these values are displayed as default one.

5.1 Presentation
The objects found in the Topology window represent objects in your network. They appear in different relational lists represented by tabs and sub-tabs. These objects are discovered by NPO through files retrieved from the declared data sources (e.g.: parameter files, PM files). At this moment, they are considered as operational objects. When a network object disappears from the network, the OMC is no more reporting data on it. NPO will detect it but will however keep it in its database as so-called soft-deleted object (marked with the red cross icon ). They can be filtered from different menu and are excluded from aggregations. To use network objects, drag and drop them together with their appropriate parameters and functions in the other functional windows.

5.5.1.2 Classification
NPO manages two different cell classes: Planned Cell Class - this value comes from RNP Operational Cell Class - this value is either chosen in NPO or comes from the OMC-R (when Cell Class is supported in the OMC-R, i.e in W-CDMA). Besides the two values (planned and operational), NPO manages an additional flag allowing to remember if the Operational Cell Class has been set to the Planned value or not. Alcatel-Lucent provides the following predefined and non-modifiable set of cell classes, known as system cell classes: Rural Suburban Urban Dense urban Indoor. System cell classes cannot be viewed, modified, or deleted using the Network Object Class Editor. In order to fit with their own optimisation methods, the optimizer may define additional customer cell classes.

6.1 Presentation
Note:
The MUSE_OBJECT_ZONE_LICENSE must be installed for the Object Zone Editor to be displayed.

6.1.1 Definitions
An object zone describes a set of network objects of the same type, filtered by a set of filters. The operator can define, for example, an Object Zone containing all cells having a call-drop of 3% or more. The filters are dynamically applied to the current Working Zone, in order to obtain the list of objects contained in the zone. This list of objects is therefore dynamic and depends on the opened Working Zone. The operation to apply filters defined in an object zone to the current Working Zone is called computation of the object zone. Object Zones can be computed only when needed (i.e. when used), on user demand, or during Analysis Desktop initialization (auto-compute property). When an object zone is computed (whatever the reason for this computation), its name is updated to display the number of objects contained in the zone (in parenthesis after the object zone name). An object type is associated with object zones to indicate which type of objects is the result of its computation. For example, an object zone containing cells is called a Cell Zone. A 2G Cell Zone is an ObjectZone(2G Cell). If an object zone contains as a filter another object zone, it is called a sub-object zone. Whenever the parent object zone criteria are changed, the changes are also inherited by the sub-object zone (i.e. criteria are not copied in the sub-object zone, but a reference to the parent object zone is kept). If an object zone contains as a filter criteria a Working Zone, it does not become a sub-object zone and the Working Zone criteria is not copied (a reference to the Working Zone is kept). An object zone can be manipulated as a standard network object. It can be used, for example, as the topology dimension of an execute view or execute report operation.

Depending on the installed technology plug, some modes can be Zone Modes containing only Object Zones of a certain type (in GSM, for example, Cell Zone, Traffic Zone and TRX Zone are dedicated modes). A generic Object Zone mode can also be used and, in that case, it can contain Object Zones of different types.

120 / 664

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

6 Object Zone

For the Traffic Zone mode, NPO generates one Object Zone (of TRX type) for each Traffic Zone of each cell. The Traffic Zone mode displays these zones as described below:

Example:

6.1.2 Filtering
A list of pre-defined topology filters is associated to each mode. All filters of a mode can be applied on any Topology Classification of the concerned mode. Filters can be used to restrict the list of displayed objects using additional criteria such as only GPRS, only B9 for example. The operator can apply a filter on any available Topology Classification of the mode. The criteria defined in the filter are then applied to the chosen classification and this one is updated displaying only the filtered objects. If a filtered non-leaf object has no child, it is also hidden. The No Filter option can be used to remove any filter applied to a classification. Applying a filter on a Topology Classification doesnt change the other Topology Classifications. Whenever some objects are dropped on a filtered classification, if some of the dropped objects are not visible due to the applied filter, then the user is informed and proposed to remove the filter or to ignore the non visible objects.

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

121 / 664

6 Object Zone

The following criteria may be used to filter a set of objects: QoS criteria, to filter for example objects with a bad Call Drop or a low Call Success Parameter (Logical and Design) criteria, to filter for example objects of a particular frequency band or class Topological criteria, to filter for example cells of a particular BSS Explicit designation, to focus for example on specific cells of high interest Free field criteria, to filter for example cells according to free fields. For each type of criteria defined above, a Reference Period and a Reference Date must be chosen to define how to apply the criteria. The following comparison operators may be used as filtering criteria: > >= < <= = != contains doesnt contain like (foe is like f* but not like f*e*o) MUSE specific comparison operators such as IsGreen() User-defined comparison operators Criteria can also be combined in a filter using the following operators: AND OR Not Parenthesis Mathematical operations can be included in the filtering formula: + * / % (Modulo) Example: to filter cells for which: I:(Call_Drop_Radio / Call_Drop_BSS > 2).

122 / 664

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

6 Object Zone

When defining a filter for objects of type A, it is possible to use criteria of objects of type B if there is a topological relation between A and B. It is then possible to filter all cells of a particular BSC or all cells having a particular type of Traffic Zone. When using descending topology links, the result can be more than one (i.e. one object has only one father but can have many children). In this case, a particular topology operator must be used: at_least_one_child or all_children. Examples: Cell filter to have only cells with a call_drop (fictional indicator name) higher than 3%: I:(Call_Drop > 3), where I stands for Indicator. Cell filter to have only cells of BSC1: filter on BSC and then: T:(OFN = BSC1), where T stands for topology attributes. Cell filter to have only cells having only GSM 1800 Traffic Zones: Filter on Traffic Zone with "All Children" selected and then P:(InternalCell.frequencyRange__TZ = GSM1800), where P stands for Parameter. Define a filter criteria using contains and doesnt contain operators:
P:(azimuthAntennaAngle>5) AND P:(cellClass CONTAINS *{*URBAN*}*) P:(azimuthAntennaAngle>5) AND P:(cellClass DOES_NOT_CONTAIN *{*URBAN*}*)

6.1.3 QoS for Object Zone


The object zone may be dragged & dropped on the viewer, in this case the object zone behaves as a single object. Spatial aggregation is used to calculate the indicator value over the object zone (refer to Aggregation (Section 10.1.7.2)).

6.1.4 Compute Object Zone


To trigger the computation of an Object Zone select an object zone in the object zone tree, then: Right click and select Compute Object Zone, OR Select from the menu Topology -> Compute Object Zone. Analysis Desktop computes the object zone and the object zone tree is updated to indicate the number of objects contained in the zone in parenthesis after its name.

Note:

Object zones that are auto computed can be re-computed in the same manner as described above. Computation of an object zone also takes into consideration the soft deleted network objects.

7 Topology Classifications

7.1 Presentation
The Topology Classification defines how Network Objects are classified in a tree structure, depending on the selected mode. Topology Classifications are specific to the used technology. Topology Classifications can be: System, as defined by Alcatel-Lucent Customer, when defined by the user (see Create Topology Classification (Section 7.3) or Create Topology Classification by Copy (Section 7.4)). In the Topology Classification, the operator can update the: User label of some network objects (mainly 2G Cell and 3G Cell objects) A network object label is defined as being the concatenation of a set of attributes. Some of these attributes are defined (by the Administrator) for all users of MUSE; others are defined on a per-operator basis using user preferences. The choice of which user label to display in the Analysis Desktop (between the Operational cell name retrieved from the OMC-R and the planned cell name retrieved from RNP) must be made by each operator. Icons associated to network objects (mainly 2G Cell and 3G Cell objects) The list of icons to be displayed can be chosen for each object based on a list of attributes; for example, for 2G Cells, dedicated icons can show Vendor or Frequency Band. If parameters are not loaded for all topology objects there can be different number of objects in topology classifications for a certain mode. Also, if one of the OMCs is undeclared, the same situation may appear (the objects of that OMC will no longer be displayed in the OMC classification for example). The correct number of objects is displayed in the All classification of any mode. See also: Organize Topology Classification Trees (in section 2.4.1.2) Hide Topology Classification (in section 2.4.1.2) Refresh Tree (in section 2.4.1.2) Apply Filter on Topology Classification (in section 2.4.1.2)

9.1 Presentation
Note:
The MUSE_WORKING_ZONE license must be installed for the Working Zone Editor to be displayed. The Working Zone Manager allows the optimizer to define a specific subset of cells in the network as a personal working zone. It is also defined by a set of filters dynamically applied to the database whenever needed (when opening the Working Zone). Therefore, the set of network elements retrieved through the filters may vary as the operational network changes in the database. To compute a Working Zone, the list of objects contained in the zone for each standard is computed and the results are merged into one single zone. If a Working Zone contains as a filter another Working Zone, it is called a Sub Working Zone. Such Working Zones inherit the filters of their parent and whenever the parent Working Zone criteria are changed, the Sub Working Zone criteria are also updated (when opened). The Working Zone is also used to manage secured access to some parts of the network. When defining a Working Zone, the administrator can restrict its access to a limited set of operators. Only the administrator can create public Working Zones. An OAD identifier is automatically associated with each public Working Zone and can be used in SECUSM to grant access to the Working Zones to different users. The Global Working Zone is a system Working Zone that contains the entire network. It cannot be deleted but, using SECUSM, particular access rights can be defined on it. Regular operators can only restrict a Working Zone they can access. They cannot create Working Zones that are not Sub Working Zones. These Sub Working Zones have the same security access as their reference Working Zone (the one from which they have been created), sharing the same OAD identifier. Sub Working Zones created by users can only be private. Depending on the pre-defined number of cells, Working Zones are classified in two categories: Standard Working Zones - containing less than 2000 cells and all modes Large Working Zones - containing more than 2000 cells. In this case, not all modes are available (Adjacency Mode for example). If you want that "Adjacency Mode" to be available, you must set the WorkingZonesAllowed parameter for ADJ to true, from the following file:
/alcatel/muse/technologies/GSM/QoS/metadata/MaatQueryMetadata.xml

If you want to change the limit of 2000 cells for Standard Working Zones, you must modify the MAX_CORE_OBJECT_COUNT parameter from the following file:
/alcatel/muse/MUSE_MAAT/topology/rsc/com/alcatel/muse/maat/ topology/config/maatTopo.cfg

This change requires a stop/start NPO from Process Monitoring page in order to be taken into account in NPO, refer to NPO/9953 MS SUP Platform Administration Guide.

Changing these parameters is not under Alcatel-Lucent responsibility. Putting higher values then the values tested in Alcatel-Lucent labs may cause higher response time or even request that do not answer.

Each technology can specify what are the modes available for Standard or Large Working Zones. To update the number of cells that can be monitored in a working zone, refer to section Modify Working Zone Dimension from NPO Administration Guide.

10 Counters and Indicators

10.1 Presentation
Note:
The MUSE_QOS_<TECHNO>_LICENSE license must be installed, so that the administrator can declare QoS data sources for a given technology (GSM, W-CDMA,). The MUSE_QOS_INDICATOR_CREATION_LICENSE license must be installed to be able to create indicators. If the MUSE_QOS_HISTORY_LICENSE license is not instaled, then the history of the QoS Data is limited to one week.

10.1.1 Definition
Counters are retrieved from the NPO and used as building blocks in the formation of indicators. An Indicator is an Optimization Application view of a network property. The indicator is computed from performance measurements, counters values, other indicators, or any other available network parameter values, such as radio parameters. An indicator is defined on Availability Domains that consist of sets of Network Objects and period types. An indicator value can be calculated for the specified Network Objects and for the possible period types only. An indicator has no meaning for Network Objects and / or period types that are not specified in its Availability Domain. An indicator is consolidated. Consolidation consists of normalization, and optionally, of aggregation (spatial or temporal). An indicator can be stored. For stored indicators, the storage duration can be configured. Indicator Type Basic Indicator Description Indicator calculated directly from the counters, or from the counters and the parameters, using a formula dependent on the release. Indicator calculated on basic or other calculated indicators, or on parameters, using a formula independent of the equipment release with the same topology level (network object type) and periodicity. A basic or calculated indicator, with a telecom definition; i.e. related to a precise telecom procedure (call drop). Represents a value that can be displayed on the analysis desktop. Several presentation indicators can be associated to a single telecom indicator. In this case, several entries are present in the functions list of the Analysis Desktop. This is typically the case when several temporal aggregations are defined. A presentation indicator based on telecom indicators. Its value is computed at higher temporal level: day, week, month.

10.1.2 Basic/Calculated Indicators


Note:
The system proposes by default a calculated indicator, and the operator must explicitly override the default to create a basic indicator.

10.1.2.1 Basic Indicators


A basic indicator is an indicator calculated directly from the counters or from the counters and the parameters, using a formula dependent on the release. The following indicators can be basic: Basic indicator alone Stored aggregation of a temporal aggregation indicator. When creating / editing a basic indicator, the system shows the list of available counters / parameters and available functions. Once a counter has been selected: Only counters of same release, PM type, source and reporting elements are available Only parameters and counters of the same release and with the same source element are available. The availability domain for the basic indicator, if the indicator has a non-empty aggregation function, is based on: Counters only, as it is extended to a high level in the hierarchy (temporal and spatial). It is done for all possible levels; it is not possible to select several levels only. Counters and parameters, as it is extended to a high level only in the temporal hierarchy. Basic indicators are always stored, but only a limited number of basic indicators is supported. For stored indicators, the storage duration can be configured.

10.1.2.2 Calculated Indicators


A calculated indicator is an indicator calculated on basic or other calculated indicators, or on parameters, using a formula independent of the equipment release with the same topology level (network object type) and periodicity. Calculated indicators can be: Classical (without any particular aggregation) With stored temporal aggregation function With multiple spatial levels, also called complex indicator level 1, or change topology level This is a calculated indicator using a formula that mixes indicators at different topology levels, such as TRX, CELL, BSC, Network. Example: if an indicator formula is CALL_DROP_DIST_SUP = CALL_DROP / sup(CALL_DROP), then to calculate this indicator at TRX level, the system does: CALL_DROP_DIST_SUPTRX = CALL_DROPTRX / CALL_DROPCELL Two functions may used: ObjSup(Ind) - takes the value of the indicator Ind at the spatial level n+1 ObjSupSel(Ind, ObjType) - takes the value of the indicator Ind at the spatial level defined by the ObjectType. With spatial aggregation function, also called complex indicator level 2. This is a calculated indicator with an aggregation function used over a zone, such as Cell Zone, TRX Zone, etc. Example: RTCH_TRAFFIC_OFFER_TOTAL = ErlangB(channelcell) A classical calculated indicator would be: RTCH_TRAFFIC_OFFER_TOTAL = ErlangB( channelcell)

Example

An indicator defined as Call_drop = Call_success / Call_Attempt is calculated differently if it is classical, or if it has a stored temporal aggregation: For classical calculated indicator: Call_drophourly = Call_successhourly / Call_Attempthourly Call_dropdaily = Call_successdaily / Call_Attemptdaily Call_dropweekly = Call_successweekly / Call_Attemptweekly Call_dropmonthly = Call_successmonthly / Call_Attemptmonthly. For indicator with stored temporal aggregation, MAX for example: Call_drophourly = Call_successhourly / Call_Attempthourly Call_dropdaily = MAXall hours(Call_successhourly / Call_Attempthourly) Call_dropweekly = MAXall days of the week(Call_successdaily / Call_Attemptdaily) Call_dropmonthly = MAXall days of the month(Call_successdaily / Call_Attemptdaily). See also Aggregation (Section 10.1.7.2). Calculated indicators are not stored in the database unless they have an associated stored temporal aggregation.

10 Counters and Indicators

The availability domain for the calculated indicator, is based on: Indicators, as it is the intersection of the availability domain of all the referenced basic indicators, of the sampling indicator and the reliability indicator Parameters, as it is the intersection of the availability domain of all referenced basic indicators and the availability domain of the parameter. The availability domain of a parameter is the object on which the parameter is based, extended to a high level in the temporal hierarchy. The rule used to compute a parameter during a period is to return the last value of the period (even if the value of the parameter has been modified during the required period).

Figure 10: Example of Availability Domain When using advanced operators such as OBJSUP, OBJINF in the formula of complex indicators, the Availability Domain must be manually determined (manually uncheck the non supported periodicities). Example: For a complex indicator defined as Call_drop / ObjSup(Call_drop), the "CZ" and "Network" should not be part of the availability domain.

10.1.3 Scalar/Vector/Matrix/Axis Indicators


The following indicator types are available: Scalar, corresponding to all mono-valued (non vector or matrix) indicators Vector, corresponding to an indicator defined in one dimension with an associated axis indicator. It can be manipulated through the Analysis Desktop or through dedicated QoS reports (distribution report) Matrix, corresponding to an indicator defined in two dimensions, and each dimension is associated with an axis indicator. It can be manipulated through the Analysis Desktop or through dedicated QoS reports (distribution report) In GSM, vector and matrix indicators are used to display RMS (Radio Measurement Statistics). Axis, associated with vector and matrix indicators. They cannot be manipulated directly by the Analysis Desktop. They are manipulated by the indicator manager.

10.1.4 Indicator Group


The indicator group has only one source. A source is a unique combination of PM type, that collects network elements and source network elements for a dedicated release. Each indicator group is stored in a different table in the database. In the data warehouse, each indicator group corresponds to a different table. All the indicators of the same group have the same spatial aggregation path. For example, for a group it is possible to have: for B9: Source = PMType 110, BSC, CELL2G for B10: Source = PMType 200, BSC, TRX.

10.1.7 Consolidation
Indicator consolidation is used to normalize and optionally to aggregate QoS data inside the data warehouse. Aggregation and normalization apply only on indicators. It is possible to calculate multiple temporal aggregation from the same indicator at a raw level. The scheduler launches the consolidation scripts every night. If the previous day consolidation is not finished, the system waits for the completion of the ongoing loading of files, before launching the consolidation for the current day. If any files are missing (not in exchange directory), the consolidation starts anyway. The administrator can manually launch the consolidation if they find out that there is recovered data that has not been consolidated. The consolidation scripts include: Data normalization: normalized indicator tables are computed using the default normalization methods Data aggregation: aggregated tables are computed using normalized indicators and aggregation methods. The obtained indicator data is aggregated spatially (static aggregation) and then temporally (daily, weekly, and monthly aggregations). Daily aggregation is always performed; weekly and monthly are only performed on the first day of the week or of the month. To view the Consolidation Follow Up, refer to Consolidation Follow Up (Section 2.18).

10.1.7.1 Normalization
Normalization consists of adapting basic indicator values to display purpose, for indicator formula calculation, or for aggregation. It comprises the following process: Interpolation, to automatically complete the missing values. Six customizable interpolation methods are supported: None - only the existing values are used (no interpolation) Only OK value - when a display period is not fully available, a NULL value is provided for that displayed period Extend - only the existing values are used and they are extended to the wanted displayed period Zero - all the missing periods are set to the zero value Linear - the missing values are replaced by a linear interpolation between the previous known value and the next known value. The linear interpolation can be specific if the values before or after are not known. Padding - all the missing periods are set to a padding value. This is zero by defaut, but can be configurable through the Padding parameter.

10.1.7.2 Aggregation
Indicators can be aggregated whenever requested. There are two types of aggregation: Temporal Aggregation, containing summarizing data of one network element into one value that defines the parent in the period hierarchy. Example: aggregation of raw data to daily data. When the indicator is defined, it is possible to have several aggregation functions; in this case there are several linked indicators. Two types of temporal aggregation can be defined: Stored Aggregation Calculated Aggregation Calculated temporal aggregation can be used to avoid having too much stored temporal aggregation when it is possible to calculate it using other indicators. Possible temporal aggregations are: SUM, MIN, MAX, BH, 3DAV, ...

Note:

For Temporal Aggregation execution at hourly level the result is the value of the telecom indicator at hourly level. Spatial Aggregation, containing the summarizing data of several network elements into one value that defines the parent in the network hierarchy. Example: aggregation of cell data to BSC data. The spatial aggregation is always done on the normalized data, before the temporal aggregation. Possible spatial aggregations are: MIN, MAX, SUM, AVG, ...

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

Example of Aggregation

Consider that RTCH_CONG indicator has two aggregation functions: TOT and MAX. MAX aggregation automatically produces an indicator called RTCH_CONG_MAX. RTCH_CONG_MAX has the same counter formula as RTCH_CONG. It is computed each night based on RTCH_CONG as the raw level, and not during PM loading. RTCH_CONG_MAX is potentially available at hourly level. In case the administrator removes this level from its availability domain, the following are produced: A telecom indicator, called RTCH_CONG A temporal aggregation, called RTCH_CONG A temporal aggregation, called RTCH_CONG_MAX. When browsing the functions in the Analysis Desktop, you can see both temporal aggregations: RTCH_CONG and RTCH_CONG_MAX, as they are considered presentation indicators. When displaying the indicator documentation, there is a main entry for the telecom indicator RTCH_CONG and two sub entries for the two temporal aggregations.

10.1.7.3 Busy Hour


Using the hourly consolidated data: Busy hour position is used to retrieve the per-day position (the hour of the day) when a reference indicator reaches its maximum value (00:00 00:59 = 0, 01:00 01:59 = 1). Busy hour is used to return the value of an indicator, at the busy hour of a reference indicator (usually not the same). This is not correlated to the maximum value of that indicator. The example below tries to get the call drop rate when the call number is maximum, and: Reference indicator is call number Indicator is call drop rate.

10 Counters and Indicators

Depending on the value of the reference indicator upper_is_fault flag, it may be needed to search for the minimum value instead of the maximum. Upper_is_fault = true => BH_max Upper_is_fault = false => BH_min. In the "Execution Context" window, by putting the mouse over the Busy Hour periodicity, a tooltip details the indicator name set as the busy hour indicator (see the example below).

Busy hour can either be computed dynamically by the system (when the busy hour option is checked in execution context), it can also be computed during consolidation and stored. When computing a busy hour on an object zone, the reference indicator is first calculated on the object zone, the maximum value is taken, and then the indicator is computed as the busy hour value. Example: Cell1 traffic: Cell2 traffic: 16H => 10, 17H => 8, 18H=>0 16H => 0, 17H => 8, 18H=>10

Related to this example, in case of: Busy Hour/Object Zone execute view: If you calculate indicator call_drop at the busy hour of this object zone, the maximum traffic of Cell1+Cell2 is at 17H, so the result will be call_drop( 17H,cell1)+call_drop(17H,cell2) Busy Hour stored aggregation the busy hour is calculated for each cells and stored. For Cell1, the system store call_drop(16H), for cell2 it store call_drop(18H), this would correspond to an indicator call_drop_bh. It is also possible to calculate object zone on call_drop_bh.

10.1.7.4 Daily Average Value


The objective of Daily Average Value computation is to get an average busy hour value for a given period (several days). The algorithm is called nDAV, n being the number of reference days for the average computation. In NPO, nDAV is usually computed for a week or a month using the following criteria: A number of reference days is selected (for instance n=3 or n=5). The per day busy hour value is computed and the n days where the reference indicator reaches its maximum values are selected. The indicator value is the average of the indicator for those n busy hours.

10.1.8 PM Data Purge


As soon as the consolidation is completed, the data whose storage duration has expired is purged / removed from NPO data warehouse. This is done for performance and storage space reasons, and depends on the configured storage durations. The minimum purge granularity is the day. The following table provides an illustration of the default size of each partition and their storage duration: Table Type Raw Normalized Daily Weekly Monthly Storage Duration 30 days 30 days From 3 to 14 months From 3 to 36 months From 3 to 36 months

10.1.9 Reliability
The value of the reliability indicator informs the operator about loss of QoS data. The reliability indicators detect: Lost objects - If any object is lost, the number of the observed objects is lower than the number of the expected objects Lost periods - If any period is lost, the observed time is lower than the expected time. Indicators are always displayed, even if some data may be missing. The reliability indicates if this displayed value is reliable (TRUE) or not (FALSE). Therefore, the displayed value for an indicator can be: Correct, whereby the reliability is TRUE Partially correct (on a limited domain), whereby the reliability is FALSE Wrong, whereby the reliability is FALSE. The reliability indicator is associated to one or several indicators, through the Reliability Indicator field (See Create Indicator (Section 10.7.2)). The QoS loss of data may occur on: Current Network exploitation operations (reset) Some software problems or operator commands such as board reset may reset the counter values on one or several boards. In this case, the equipment cannot provide the counter values associated with these boards for the entire PM period. The concerned counters are put to NULL. When a problem occurs on some equipment (for example, on the MFS) and all the counters are NULL, then a specific flag is set to active in the PM file to indicate that there are no available counters in the PM file. QoS files transfer problems. Due to different problems (BSC/MFS or OMC-R failure), some PM files can be lost. Also, PM files that arrive too late to be processed by the different aggregation scripts performed once a night, are considered as lost. The reliability indicator is not developed for the adjacency object The Alcatel-Lucent reliability indicator is not developed for QoS indicators based on RIM-NACC counters (RIM-NACC = RAN Information Management - Network Assisted Cell Change) The displayed value for an indicator can be good and reliability false when an object is added, removed or migrated.

10.1.10 Threshold and Sampling


When creating an indicator, you can associate thresholds and sampling to it. Thresholds are used for highlighting QoS values. This is done using colors in a view or report, in order to quickly see which values are critical, major, etc. (see Highlight in View (Section 18.5.2)). The indicators for which thresholds are defined are also used when creating warning reports. In this way, the report results may be filtered according to the set thresholds (see Warning Reports (Section 19.1.5)). Three alert thresholds corresponding to three QoS requirement levels can be defined for each QoS indicator: red, orange, and yellow, each having three definable sensitivities. See Set QoS Requirement (Section 4) to change the requirement level. If the value of the reference indicator upper_is_fault is: true, min color is green, and max color is red false, min color is red and max color is green.

Figure 11: Threshold and Sampling for Call_Drop_Rate Indicator

Figure 12: Threshold and Sampling for Call_Success_Rate Indicator If the sampling indicator is below the sampling value, then the threshold is not taken into consideration. For example, for call_drop_rate: the red threshold is 4% for the high sensitivity the sampling indicator is RTCH_success_end the sampling value is 100.

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

10 Counters and Indicators

If the value of RTCH_success_end is less than 100, the threshold is never computed. Therefore, the goal of the sampling is to avoid triggering the threshold when there are too few calls to have any meaningful statistics. The following icons are attached to the indicators having or not threshold: Indicators with thresholds: Indicators without thresholds: .

The threshold and sampling of an indicator are customizable, in order to adapt their values to the operators expertise. See Edit Indicator Threshold / Sampling Values (Section 10.7.5)

The indicators defined using the CHILDREN_COUNT functions are available only on every object type and daily levels because they return the number of children for a given object on a given date. Their spatial aggregation method is SUM, interpolation method is PREVIOUS. Log counting indicators A single function call is used: LOG_COUNT(<filtering expression>). The indicators defined using the LOG_COUNT function are available on every object type and daily levels because LOG_COUNT simply returns the number of logs matching a filter on a given date. Their spatial aggregation method is SUM, interpolation method is PADDING(0). Alarm counting indicators A single function call is used: ALARM_COUNT(<filtering expression>). The indicators - defined using the ALARM_COUNT function - are available on every object type and daily levels because ALARM_COUNT simply returns the number of alarms matching a filter on a given date. Such an indicator returns information about the number of active alarms for each period inside a time interval. The filtering expression allows filtering on: The oject type The event type The severity The probable cause The specific problem And the friendly name. Their spatial aggregation method is SUM, interpolation method is PADDING(0). Alarm outage indicator Similar to alarm counting indicators but it sums the alarm outage time (clear time event time) instead of simply counting alarms. Alarm Cut-off indicators. Braces ({, }) are not supported for boolean expressions.

You can propagate: Counters to Indicators This retrieves all indicators using, directly or indirectly, the selected counters in their formula. Indicators to: Counter This retrieves all used counters, directly or indirectly, in the selected indicators formula. View Template This retrieves all view templates using the selected indicators in their tabular list. Diagnosis This retrieves all diagnosis for which the indicator is their trigger. THL This retrieves all Thematic Layers Templates referencing the selected indicators. Use the following procedure to propagate the selected item to the corresponding function tree: 1. Click on the item you want to propagate. If it is a leaf node, it is selected. If it is a non-leaf node, all items under that node are selected. It is possible to perform multiple selections and de-selections. 2. Drag the selected item and drop it to needed function tab. The mouse

10.1.13 Indicators Restrictions After B9 NPA Data Import into NPO


This section is not applicable for W-CDMA. The following restrictions are applicable for indicators migrated from NPA to NPO: Reliability indicators In both NPA and NPO the reliability indicators follow the group structure of the stored indicators groups. When groups change (split/join), the old reliability indicators are no longer relevant. The group structure is very different in NPO compared to NPA, this is why the reliability indicators are ignored during data import. So for the historical data, the reliability indicators do not hold any values in NPO. Therefore you should not check the reliability when displaying the historical data - all this data appears as unreliable. B8 specific indicators NPA B9 tables contain several columns for B8 specific indicators. When NPA data is imported to NPO the whole network is swapped to B9, however there may still be some historical B8 values visible in NPA. As NPO supports B9/B10 GSM releases, the B8 specific indicators are not present in NPO, so the historical B8 data is not imported in NPO. NPA B9 MR1 specific indicators, removed in B9 MR4 As NPO dictionaries are aligned with B9 MR4, migration from NPA B9 MR1 is possible but with some restrictions. The indicators present in MR1only and removed in MR4 are not imported in NPO. Provisioned or unused indicators Several provisioned stored indicators present in the NPA database are not migrated to NPO.

10.2 Display Counters and Indicators


To display the values of the counters and indicators, select them and the appropriate network object(s) and execute them in a view. Refer to Execute View (Section 18.4.1). Indicators are classified as Basic/Calculated Indicators and Scalar/Vector/Matrix/Axis Indicators.

6. If needed, add a Temporal Aggregation by clicking on [ New Temporal Aggregation ] (this step can be done several times, and it is the default choice for a basic indicator). Type the Reference Extension and Name of the temporal aggregation. The Name field may be left empty; in this case the temporal aggregation is displayed with the same name as the indicator. Type the Description Extension. Choose the unit, and the precision to which the indicator be rounded up. When available, the unit and the precision of the indicator are proposed as default value. The unit needs to be entered by the operator only when different from telecom indicator. Choose whether you want Percentage display or not. Choose whether the Temporal Aggregation is Visible or not. Select between Stored and Calculated temporal aggregation. The default choice is stored. For stored temporal aggregation, the system checks whether the maximum number of customer stored indicators has been reached (for stored aggregation only). If yes, the operation is rejected; if no, perform the following: Choose a temporal aggregation function. If the chosen temporal aggregation is BusyHour, add also the BusyHour Indicator. Choose the relevant hours for the aggregation: all hours or just working hours. If needed, add a reliability indicator. Add an indicator group. You can either : select a predefined compatible group (with the same PM type, and collecting network element) from the drop down list group, or create your own group: Click on [ Add Group ]. The "Add Group" window opens. Type the appropriate indicator group name. Select the Spatial Aggregation Path from the drop down list. Click on [ OK ] to associate the spatial aggregation path with the newly created indicator group. For calculated temporal aggregation, perform the following:

Add a formula that calculates the indicator. The same possibilities exist as for the formula of calculated indicator. If needed, add a reliability indicator. The system computes the availability domain. If necessary, unselect some parts of it, but make sure it is not empty. 7. If needed, add an associated presentation indicator (it is possible to perform this step only once, this is the default choice for a calculated indicator).Presentation is: in the case of basic indicators - set as unchecked and one stored temporal indicator is added in the case of calculated indicators - added with no temporal indicators. Perform the following: Choose the unit, and the precision to which the indicator be rounded up. Choose whether you want Percentage display or not. Choose whether the presentation indicator is Visible or not. Add a reliability indicator. The system computes and displays the availability domain. If necessary, unselect some part of it, but make sure it is not empty. 8. If needed, add the appropriate Families. An indicator can belong to a family and sub-family hierarchy. Up to four depths of sub family are currently supported. An indicator can belong to more than one family and it is also possible that the indicator does not belong to any family. Such indicators are visible only to the administrator. Select or type a family and subsequently the sub families of the family are listed. The same behavior is followed for all four levels of sub families. To add a new family, right click on an existing family, and select [ Add Family ]. A new row is created and you can select from the list, or type the appropriate new family. To remove an existing family, right click on an existing family, and select [ Remove Family ]. The row is deleted from the Families table. 9. If needed, add Threshold and Sampling. The following configurations are possible: Both threshold and sampling are available Either threshold or sampling is available Neither threshold nor sampling is available.

Note:
The MUSE_PARAM_<TECHNO>_LICENSE license must be installed so that the administrator can create parameters for a given technology (GSM, W-CDMA,). If the MUSE_PARAM_HISTORY_LICENSE license is not instaled, then the history of the parameters is not kept. Radio parameters are used for: Tuning, i.e. changing parameters, for that NPO allows to: Display parameters Compare parameters between cells Show the history, in particular to correlate it with Qos variation. compare it with planned value compare it with referenced value tuning. QoS interpretation and reporting Parameters are taken into account when comparing cells, object zones, and classifications between themselves. Radio parameters are used for QoS interpretation and reporting. Parameters are taken into account when comparing cells, object zones, and classifications between themselves. Parameters are also taken into account (for example the number of TRX) when computing some indicators. Two types of parameters are defined: Design parameters, that define the radio network architecture in term of coverage and mobility capability Design parameters can have the following values: An operational value that is in use in the network. The value is retrieved from the OMC-R A planned value. Design parameters can have four sub-levels in the family hierarchy. Logical parameters, also called telecom algorithm parameters, used to optimize the telecom behaviour. Logical parameter can have the following values: An operational value that is in use in the network. The value is retrieved from the OMC-R A historical value that results from the value of the operational parameter in the past A forecast value that results from a tuning session and is used to change values in the network A reference value which is the default value of a parameter for a given network object. This value depends on the network object configuration,

12.1 Presentation
Note:
The MUSE_PARAM_HISTORY_LICENSE license must be installed, so that the history of parameters is kept.

12.1.1 Definition
Reference values are Excel files that express the default value that a parameter for a given network object should have. These values depend on the network object configuration, i.e. values of other parameters (for example, for GSM cells, on the cell type and cell class: urban, rural, number of TRX). Alcatel-Lucent publishes reference values for the parameters of its equipment. Some operators directly use Alcatel-Lucent reference values, others change them to better suit their needs.

Note:

For W-CDMA, the customer can create some, but no reference values from Alcatel-Lucent.

12.1.2 Characteristics
A parameter dictionary can contain only one reference values Excel files. The file is mono-release, unlike rules files that are multi-releases. The xls reference values file can contain several sheets: each sheet contains reference values for one type of object or relation. Each sheet contains: A list of a parameters for a given object type For one type of objects, several sheets can be created and parameters can be grouped as wished by the operator, but one sheet contains only reference values for one object type. Each parameter can have a ParamVersionInfo for a given release and a given object type. The Parameter Version Info describes the parameter and the object on which the parameter is applied. A list of criteria that defines the conditions when the reference value apply The reference values themselves. On the fields, some parameters may be changed for local optimization (tuning). That is why the reference value is composed of: A minimum value - the tuning should not go below this value A maximum value - the tuning should not go above this value A reference value - this should be the value used when the cell was created.

Note:

The layout used by Excel (font, bold, italic, cell colors, cell border, comments) has no impact on NPO.

12.1.3 File Header


Each sheet of the xls reference values contains a header in the following form: 1 2 3 4 n <Parameter name 1> <Parameter name 2> <Comment> <Parameter name 3> Start <Parameter value 3> <Parameter value 1> <Parameter value 2>

The header is contained in the first two columns (A and B). For each line, the header contains either: a parameter name in column A and the parameter value in column B, or a comment, that can be any string from column A, that is not a known parameter. Parameter names are case insensitive. If a parameter name is present several times, only the first occurrence is taken into account. Comments are ignored. The header stops when column A contains the keyword "start" (case insensitive).

12.1.4 Columns Header


Below the rule file header, the first two lines contain the columns header. In the two lines of the columns header, column A contains the header for the column containing parameter names (e.g. the label Parameters). Columns B, C and D contain the header for the default values columns (e.g. label Default on the first line and labels min ref and max on the second line). Theses headers are only for presentation purposes. Starting at column E, cells are grouped three by three: for minimum, reference and maximum value. For each group, the first line contains a criteria expression, that must match the grammar described in Expression Grammar (Section 12.1.7). The second line is only for presentation purpose (labels min ref and max).

12 Reference Values

12.1.5 Reference Values Data


After the columns header, the next lines contain the reference values data, one set of reference values for a given parameter per line. Columns A, B, C and D define the following: Column A B C D Description The parameter name (e.g. A_LEV_HO). Default minimum value (only numerical values). Default Reference value. Default maximum value (only numerical values). Mandatory Yes No No No

All next columns are grouped three by three, and contain the following: Column E Description Mandatory

Minimum Reference value for the corresponding No criteria (only numerical values). Reference value for the corresponding criteria. Maximum Reference value for the corresponding criteria (only numerical values). No No

F G

The following rules apply: If a minimum value is given then a maximum value must be given (and vice-versa) If minimum and maximum values are given, the reference value must be given If the reference value is given but the minimum and maximum are empty it means that, if the criteria matches, the parameter has no minimum and maximum values. If the three are empty it means that, even if the criteria matches, it is not taken into account and the next criteria (on the left) is checked. The default reference values (minimum, maximum or the three) can be empty, in this case, nothing is returned.

12.1.6 Reference Values Evaluation


The evaluation of criteria starts with the rightmost one first, and then criteria is evaluated from right to left until one is matched. If none matches, the default values are used. The criteria in the xls file is evaluated starting with the Reference value (min, max and reference value). A next Reference value is linked to it, it contains the criteria to evaluate if the first one is false and the associated minimum, maximum and reference values. The default Reference value is the last one (not linked to a next Reference value) if the criteria expression is empty; otherwise it means that the parameter has not default values.

12.1.7 Expression Grammar


The following grammar is used to check reference values and rules expressions: Tokens Whitespace Number Identifier RelationSel <<[ \t\n\r]+>> %ignore% <<[0-9]+>> <<[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9$#_]*>> <<[SsTt]:>> S for Source, T for Target TopoSel Dot Comma Left Parenthesis <<[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9$#_]*:>> "."

12.1.8 Compare Different Values of Reference Values


You can troubleshoot for parameter related problems by comparing their current Operational values against their Reference values to see which values have been changed from the default values.

Note:

For W-CDMA, it is possible only one reference value per parameter. 1. Select the appropriate network elements (e.g.: BSCells) and Design parameters, then: Drag and drop them in the Tabular / Graphical Viewer, OR Select from the menu bar View -> Execute View..., OR Press Ctrl+Q. The Execution Context window appears. 2. Enter the appropriate information, as presented in Execution Context (Section 3.7), selecting Hour periodicity, the appropriate Date and Time. 3. Click on [ Execute ] to execute the view. The values related to the dropped objects are displayed in the Executed Tabular / Graphical Viewer. 4. Choose from the combo box the appropriate values to display (e.g. Date, or Operational Value). 5. Show Legend (Section 18.5.3). 6. In the "Legend" window, Parameter Comparison frame, choose to compare the appropriate Source and Target values (e.g.: All values to Reference, or values before and after a migration or upgrade).

13 Rules

13.1 Presentation
Note:
The MUSE_CUSTOMER_RULES_LICENSE license must be installed, so that the rules where the supplier is customer can be imported and exported.

13.1.1 Definition
Rules are Excel files that express the dependency between two or more parameters of a given object, and are stored in the Oracle database. To indicate when a rule is applicable, conditions and expressions on other parameters are defined inside it.

13.1.2 Classification
Depending on their supplier, three types of rules are defined: Standard rules are provided by Alcatel-Lucent, and are related to the standard itself, regardless of the firm producing the equipment (e.g. GSM rules as defined by the standard) Alcatel-Lucent rules are provided by Alcatel-Lucent, and are related to Alcatel-Lucent equipments Customer rules are rules defined by the operator (Import/export of customer rules are subject to the MUSE_CUSTOMER_RULES_LICENSE). Depending on their type, rules can be: System rules are the expression of a dependency between object parameters, as they appear in standardization documents Expert rules are rules that results from experience.

13.1.3 Characteristics
A parameter dictionary can contain several rule Excel files, but a file contains rules for only one dictionary. The xls rule file can contain several sheets: each sheet contains rules for a given dictionary, a given supplier, and a given object type. A rule file can be: multi-type, one type per sheet, but types can also be split into several files multi-supplier (e.g. one sheet for Standard rules and one sheet for Alcatel-Lucent rules), but rules from different supplier types can also be split into several files multi-release (unlike reference values files that are mono-release). The name of a rule file is unique for a dictionary and object type. Rules can be checked: on objects in the Analysis Desktop when applying a Tuning Session.

13.1.5 Columns Header


Below the rule file header, the first two lines contain the columns header. The first eight columns (from A to H) contain the names of the rule attributes. The names contained in the header cells are not important themselves, it is only the order of the columns that counts. The rules attributes are defined in the following order: Name, Rule Type, Severity, Visible, Function, Rule Expression, Description, and Rule Condition.

The next columns (starting with column I) define additional conditional parameters for rules. The first line contains a variable set of merged cells. Each set has a variable number of merged cells. It contains an object parameter name, e.g. CELL_CLASS. The number of sets itself is not limited. On the second line, for each set of merged cells, i.e. for each object parameter, each individual cell contains a parameter value, e.g. URBAN, SUBURBAN, etc. Each column represents a specific condition on an object parameter value, of the form <parameter name>=<parameter value>, e.g CELL_TYPE=CONCENTRIC .

No

The rule expression. It must validate the grammar given in Annex. Yes The rule condition that defines when the rule applies. It must validate the grammar given in Annex. No

Figure 23: Example of First Columns of Rules Data The next columns (starting with column I) define additional conditional parameters for rules. Depending on the Columns Header, each cell corresponds to a specific condition on a parameter value (e.g. CELL_CLASS = CONCENTRIC). If the cell contains any text (e.g. X) it means that the condition must be applied for the rule.

13 Rules

Figure 24: Example of Last Columns of Rules Data For each rule, a cross in a cell means that the conditional parameter must have the corresponding value to make the rule applicable. If some cells are checked for several values of the same parameter (e.g. RELEASE = B9 is checked and RELEASE = B10 is also checked) the rule applies if the conditional parameter have one of the checked values (i.e. if RELEASE = B9 is checked and RELEASE = B10 is also checked, the rule is applicable for objects where RELEASE = B9 OR RELEASE = B10). If a condition (and specific conditional parameters) is false for an object, it means that the rule cannot be applied on that object, and the rule result is N/A (and not true or false, whatever the rule expression value for that object). Rule expressions and conditions are formulas containing references to parameters of the network object. It can also contain selectors to use parameters of a child or a parent object, or to use parameters of the source or target objects in the case of relations (adjacencies). Example: BSC:Release = XYZ S:CELL_CLASS = URBAN (S for Source) T:CELL_CLASS = URBAN (T for Target) In the same way, Hard-coded conditional parameters (e.g. CELL_CLASS, RELEASE) must match the parameter expressions defined in the grammar. They may also use selectors like S:CELL_CLASS, i.e. the parameter CELL_CLASS of the source cell.

13.1.7 Rules Evaluation


When executing a view that contains rules, the parameter values from the rules conditions and expressions are evaluated with operational, historical, planned, or forecast values depending on the view execution context. The execution context is set in the same way as for views containing parameters. The temporal part of the availability domain (list of periodicity) is fixed and is common to all rules; it is configurable in a configuration file. The spatial part of the availability domain of a rule is the associated object type of the rule (e.g. CELL2G). The availability domain of a rule is not computed from availability domain of parameters used in the rule. This means that if the user chooses an execution context that is not valid for one of the parameters, the result of the Rule is N/A (see below). When checking a tuning session, the parameter values from the rules conditions and expressions are evaluated with operational or forecast values, depending on the given tuning session.

In both cases, the evaluation of the rule may involve getting parameter values of other related objects (operational or forecast when checking a tuning session, operational or historical when executing a rules view, in the same execution context). The criteria in the xls file is evaluated from right to left. A rule cannot be checked on an object (the rule result is N/A) if: The rule condition (and specific conditional parameters) is false for that object At least one parameter used in the rule expression has no value for that object in the given execution context. The rule condition or rule expression cannot be evaluated (e.g. division by zero or comparison between numeric and non-numeric values). In this case, a warning must be logged. Depending on the Severity value, the following icons are defined: Icon Description The rule expression is true on that object.

The rule expression is false on that object, and the rule type is Warning. The rule expression is false on that object, and the rule type is Error.

14 Events

14.1 Presentation
Events are correlated to the QoS evolution of the network and show when key information of a cell is changed. Events are defined per technology (GSM, W-CDMA, ). The events definitions contain a unique name, an availability domain, and a family. The family attribute represents the method that is used to compute the event. Two families are defined: parameter (modification of current or planned parameter, e.g identifier, BSC, frequency) and topology (object creation/deletion, e.g Move BTS). Internal events are defined on historicized network configuration data, such as logical/design parameter modifications and/or topology modifications to detect significant changes. Events may be displayed: On a synthetic view like a dashboard where each event is represented by a graphical symbol In reports or in a dedicated tabular view.

Note:

Only the following events are available for W-CDMA:cell, adjacency, network element creation/deletion. Only Events for which the Visible property is set to True are displayed for any user. Non-Visible events are displayed only for the Administrator. A predefined set of events per technology is defined by Alcatel-Lucent. These are called system events and cannot be updated or deleted by the user.

15.1 Presentation
15.1.1 Definition
For each customer object type, a set of additional free fields can be defined. Then, an object can be associated to a set of free fields values. Free fields can be generalized for all network objects, but are basically used with the cells. They can be displayed as design parameters, used in criteria for working zone, object zone and in classification. Free Fields are displayed in alphabetic order and no user-defined classification can be created for them.

15.1.2 Free Fields File Format


The free fields file can be either a comma-separated, or a semicolon-separated values file. The format is composed of three parts: Header Label Value.

15.1.2.1 Free Fields File Header


The header part is the first line of the file. For the specific case of GSM Cells, the header is composed as below: FREE FIELD;<optional comment> For generic cases, the header is composed as below: FREE FIELD;<optional comment>;<TYPE> where <TYPE> is the type of objects contained in the file. Example: FREE FIELD;CELL3G

15.1.2.2 Free Fields File Label


For the specific case of GSM Cells: The second line defines the used external IDs and the names of free fields. There are two ways of identifying cells with two different configurations of external IDs: MCC/MNC/CI configuration In CI configuration, the label part is composed of keyword CELL_MCC, CELL_MNC, CELL_ID followed by free fields name, separated by semicolons: CELL_MCC;CELL_MNC;CELL_ID;<name1>;<name2>; etc Example: CELL_MCC;CELL_MNC;CELL_ID;Address; ZIP_Code MCC/MNC/LAC/CI configuration In LACCI configuration, the label part is composed of keyword CELL_MCC, CELL_MNC, LAC_ID, CELL_ID followed by free fields name, separated by semicolons: CELL_MCC;CELL_MNC;LAC_ID;CELL_ID;<name1>;<name2>; etc Example: CELL_MCC;CELL_MNC;LAC_ID;CELL_ID;Address;ZIP_Code The external IDs of GSM cells is constructed from this information. For generic cases, the header is composed as below: The second line is composed of keyword OEXID followed by the names of free fields, separated by semicolons. The label part is composed of the name of the type, followed by free fields name, separated by semicolons: OEXID;<name1>;<name2>; etc Example: OEXID;Address;ZIP_Code

15 Free Fields

15.1.2.3 Free Fields File Value


The other lines of the free fields file form the value part. Each line describes the values of free fields for one cell. For the specific case of GSM Cells: The line is introduced by the cell identifiers followed by values of free fields, separated by semicolons: <MCC>;<MNC>;[<LAC_ID>];<CI>;<val1>;<val2>; etc LAC_ID is contained depending if it is present or not in the label part. Note that the number of values must be equal to the number of labels declared in label part. Empty lines are skipped with no warning. The last line is read even if it does not end with a carriage return. Example: 2;3;12450;4 Main Street;92000 5;3;13200;3 Downtown blvd;06000 For generic cases: The line is introduced by the object external identifier followed by values of free fields, separated by semicolons: <OEXID>;<val1>;<val2>; etc Note that the number of values must be equal to the number of labels declared in label part. Empty lines are skipped with no warning. The last line is read even if it does not end with a carriage return. Example: 000001/000005;4 Main Street;92000 000001/000006;3 Downtown blvd;06000

This may happen with the target group, the mouse pointer changes to in case of a parent folder being dropped in a child folder, or if the source and destination folders are the same. Continue the dragging process to an appropriate group, where the mouse

pointer is . The favorite/group is moved.

17.3 Import Favorites


Favorites can also be added in NPO by importing them from an xml file. The exported file to be imported has no associated owner, so any user can import favorites exported by another user. If the active mode and the mode in the imported file are not the same, then the import is only possible for the functions whose availability domain contains the active modes object type. Favorites defined for a Non Zone mode can be imported also for the corresponding Zone mode (i.e. Favorite Indicators defined on 3G Cell can be imported in 3G Cell Zone mode). Favorites defined for a Zone mode can be imported also for the corresponding Non Zone mode (i.e. Favorite Indicators defined on 3G Cell Zone can be imported in 3G Cell mode). When importing favorites, the existing favorites are merged with the imported ones. To import favorites from an xml file: 1. In the "Organize Favorites" window, click on [ Import ]. The "Import Favorites" window opens.

18.1 Presentation
18.1.1 Definition
View enables to display results coming from any analysis service (e.g. functions) in a tabular way or graphical way. A view contains the network objects, functions, and execution context (period, interval, sampling, interpolation, reliability options). The limit for the number of functions inside a view is 500. A view template defines a set of indicators / parameters. A view can be created: By selecting network objects and view templates, then executing them on an Execution Context (period, interval, sampling, interpolation, reliability), OR Interactively, by selecting network objects and indicators/counters/parameters/events/rules/synthetic diagnosis, then dragging and dropping them into a viewer browser. Only the Equipment view cannot be created interactively. The default limit for the maximum objects in a view in the view browser is 5000. A view is also known as an Executed View and appears in the View Viewer. The default limit for the maximum number of views in the report browser is 20. If you want to change the following limits: the limit of 5000 objects, you must modify the following parameters: analysis.desktop.objects.views.limit parameter from the following file:
/alcatel/muse/MUSEADWEBSTART/webapps/AD/rsc/com/alcatel/ muse/usm/config/ad_param.cfg

MAXSIZE parameter from the following file:


/alcatel/muse/MUSE_MAAT/qos/rsc/com/alcatel/muse/maat/ qos/QoSResource.cfg

the limit of 20 views in the view browser, you must modify the following parameters: analysis.desktop.views.inside.report.limit parameter from the following file: /alcatel/muse/MUSEADWEBSTART/webapps/AD/rsc/com/alcatel/

In order for the updates to be taken into account in Analysis Desktop, the Analysis Desktop must be closed, then re-opened. Changing these parameters is not under Alcatel-Lucent responsibility. Putting higher values then the values tested in Alcatel-Lucent labs may cause higher response time or even request that do not answer.

18.1.2 Classification
The views can be displayed in one of the following modes: Tabular mode - displays the exact values of analysis services outputs in a table Graphical mode - displays analysis outputs with curves and histograms. Four types of views are defined: standard, vector, and matrix and equipment. Apart from the specific case of Equipment, views can also be grouped into four types of evolution and comparison: Mono-Object Evolution View Multi-Object Evolution View Multi-Object Comparison View Mono-Object Distribution View. Mono-Object Distribution Views are not available in WiMAX. In the following table, the Number of Objects refers to the number of network objects used when creating the executed view. The Period Covered refers to the date(s) entered in the execution context when creating the executed view.

18.1.3 Tabular and Graphical Modes


Two types of modes are defined for the views: Table mode, with all attached indicators or parameters The table mode displays values of analysis services outputs. Optional rows and columns (such as Total, Weight and Order) may be displayed in tabular views (depending on the choices made at view template definition time). Graphic mode, if the graphic representation is defined in the view template. The graphical mode is defined from a subset of indicators or parameters defined in the tabular mode. The graphic mode displays analysis outputs with curves, histograms with scales and legend. Only one mode is displayed at a time for each view. Indicators or Parameters may have different graphical properties (legend) according to the mode used.

Graphical and Tabular View Title Format

The following title format is automatically filled in at view execution: <Title as defined in view template> <Equipment (N=Top N Value) Equipment View Class: Equipment View Type if Equipment view> <- Alarm Sub-Type if Equipment view of alarm> <object type> <:object tree label if single object>-<Trend from if Trend> <from date and time depending on periodicity> <to to date and time depending on periodicity> <(periodicity if one of specified cases)> (<Working Zone: Working Zone Name QoS Requirement>) < (Interpolation) if not default> <(Sampling) if true> <(Reliability) if true> <(Type of Result) if Equipment view> <(Time Range Type) if Equipment view> The used font style is bold, and the font size is Default Size.

18.1.4 Standard View Template


Standard view templates contain standard indicators and/or parameters. The graphics for the standard view templates are 2D. See also Display Standard View Properties (Section 18.2.1).

18.1.5 Vector View Template


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. Vector view templates contain vector indicators all of which have the same axis indicator. The graphics for the vector view templates are 2D. See also Display Vector View Properties (Section 18.2.2).

18.1.6 Matrix View Template


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. Matrix view templates contain one matrix indicator which has two axis indicators. The graphics for the matrix view template are 3D. See also Display Matrix View Properties (Section 18.2.3).

18.1.6.1 Matrix Distribution Images


The following matrix distribution images are available:

18.1.6.2 Interval Values


The interval values entered by the user are rounded according to the nbAfterPoint attribute of the matrix indicator. This rounded value is the one used and displayed for the interval bound, and not the input value. Per default, min and max values are set to 0. If min or max changes, the corresponding value is changed in the distribution scale, without changing colors, and other interval values are updated according to the interval distribution function. The update of min / max values is done: in the distribution scale when modifying their values in static sections in static sections when changing theirs values in the distribution scale. In static distributed QoS views, interval values are written in black in the view legend. Switching from Dynamic distribution mode to Static distribution mode and vice versa does not change the number of steps or the colors of the distribution scale. If the user changes the mode from custom distribution to linear / exponential / logarithmic mode, a confirmation message appears to prevent the lost of previous interval values If the user changes any distribution value, the interval distribution becomes the custom mode.

18.1.7 Equipment View Template


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. Equipment view templates contain the top N of alarms, logs or basic unavailability. The top N is generated according to a defined attribute of items. For instance, the top 1counts the highest number of items with the same value for this attribute. The graphics for the equipment view templates are 2D. See also Display Equipment View Properties (Section 18.2.4).

18.1.8 Extension and Restriction of Availability Domain


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. The availablity domain can be managed by extending it or restricting it in views and reports, for the following cases: Create / Create By Copy View Template Edit View Template Edit View Template From Executed View by Dialog Box Execute View(s) Create / Create By Copy Report Template Edit Report Template Edit Report Template From Executed Report by Dialog Box Executed View Modification in Report by Dialog Box Execute Report(s).

Click on the appropriate checkbox to extend/restrict the availability domain. For a warning report, if the filtering/sorting indicator is not available, the availability domain cannot be extended. If you try to add a function to a view, or interactively a view to a report, whose availability domain is restricted, then the drop cursor indicates that the operation is not allowed. If the final availability domain was restricted to no longer be available on an object and period, for example BSC as object and Day as periodicity, then this view/report cannot be executed on BSC with Day periodicity.

Figure 69: Equipment View with Visible Dates Example (N=4, Top N Item=Alarm Perceived Severity, Among Network Objects=No) Raw Counters Graphical Display The user is allowed to display the graphical view for counters in raw periodicity of a maximum of 7 days. The graphical view divides all the data by the smallest raw periodicity time (or the smallest difference between starting RP times) so that the data can be equally compared. The following example shows how to divide the data using raw periodicity:

Find below the data that is used to create the graphial mode. The values are adjusted to the smallest raw periodicity. For example, in the table above the smallest raw periodicity is 15 min. So the value 100 of Cell A for the first counter RTCH_request (GTCAHRQN) is divided such that its raw periodicity is 15 min thus 100/4 = 25. Likewise, RTCH_request (GTCAHRQN) for Cell B is divided by 2 to go from an raw periodicity of 30 min to an RP of 15 min.

Figure 71: Equipment View with Visible Dates Example (N=4, Top N Item=Alarm Perceived Severity, Among Network Objects=No) The graphs for raw counters are as follows:

18.4.3 Edit Executed View Interactively


The user can change the display properties that appear in the executed view interactively. The update appears directly on the displayed executed view.

18.4.3.1 Edit Title


The title in the tabular and graphical view can be edited by double-clicking on it. This becomes editable and you can change only the real title part (as in the view template) and not the additional information (Ie. execution context information). Press [ Enter ] or change the focus so that the new value is accepted. If you press [ Esc ], the old value is displayed and the title field is grayed. The following figure shows the behavior of editing a title in the executed view.

18.4.3.2 Add Network Objects / Indicators / Counters / Parameters / Rules / Events / Free Fields / Diagnoses
Select the network objects / indicators / counters / parameters / rules / events / free fields / Diagnoses you want to add, then drag & drop them in the tabular / graphical viewer using Ctrl-Drag&Drop (depending on the user preferences). Depending on the user preferences, the selected items are added to the executed view, or a new view is created. The same Execution Context is used for the new items. If indicators / counters / parameters are added to a graphic view, they are added to the primary or secondary one (and tabular) depending on their units. If their units are not those in the graphics, they are just added to the tabular. If a vector indicator is added to a vector view template, it is added as the last indicator. If a matrix indicator is added to a matrix view, the current matrix indicator is replaced by the new one since there is only one matrix indicator per view. The corresponding X and Y axis indicators are then updated based on the new matrix indicator.

18.4.3.3 Remove Network Objects / Indicators / Counters / Parameters / Rules / Events / Free Fields / Diagnoses
Select from the topology tree the network objects / indicators / counters / parameters / rules / events / free fields / Diagnoses you want to remove, then press Ctrl-Shift Drag&Drop (depending on the user preferences). Depending on the user preferences, the selected items are removed from the current view or in a new view. The same Execution Context is used for the remaining items.

18.4.3.4 Roll Up / Drill Down Temporally


This sub use case allows the operator to Roll-up / Drill-down temporally in the executed view. As a prerequisite, the executed view must already exist in the tabular / graphical viewer. To Roll Up, select View -> Temporal Scope -> Roll Up from the toolbar, or click on the icon from the view toolbar

To Drill Down, select View -> Temporal Scope -> Drill Down from the toolbar, or click on the icon from the view toolbar.

The interval on the view changes depending on the temporal availability. Depending on the user preferences, the data is updated either in the executed view or in a new view. Below day periodicities such as: 4Hr, 1/2Hr,1/4Hr, RAW, etc. are treated as Hourly. If the user rolls up from one of these periodicities, it is the same as rolling up from Hour. Drilling down from Day always goes to Hour, if it is available, and not to one of the other below day periodicities. If any filter is active on the current view, the Roll-Up or Drill-Down is always performed on the actual data (invisible data is also taken into account, filtering is ignored).

Example: Cells are displayed on a Day basis and the current availability domain of the executed view is: Hour Network RNC Cell Adjacency X X X X X Day Week Month X

If the user Rolls-Up from Day, the new period will be Month and not Week, because Cells are not available on Week but are on Month. The user cannot Drill-Down because Cells are not available on Hour.

Note:

For Temporal Drill Down from daily value for stored/calculated temporal aggregation indicator (e.g. BH, MAX, MIN, AVG), the NPO will display the value of the telecom indicator at hourly level.

18.4.3.5 Roll Up / Drill Down Spatially


This sub use case allows the operator to interactively Roll-up / Drill-down spatially in an executed view, and add or remove network objects. For this, the executed view must already exist in the tabular / graphical viewer. To Roll Up, select View -> Spatial Scope -> Roll Up from the toolbar, or click on the icon from the view toolbar

To Drill Down, select View -> Spatial Scope -> Drill Down from the toolbar, or click on the icon from the view toolbar.

The network objects in the view change depending on the spatial availability. The interval on the view changes depending on the spatial availability. The data is updated in the executed view. The Execution Context remains the same. When rolling-up or drilling-down to a relation, the relations that have the current network object as the source are used; i.e. if the current object is Cell1 and the user drills-down to Adjacency, then all the Adjacencies that have Cell1 as the source are displayed in the resulting view. When triggering a Drill-Down for a mono-object evolution or a mono-object distribution view, then N views are generated as when executing them. If any filter is active on the current view, the Roll-Up or Drill-Down is always performed on the actual data (invisible data is also taken into account, filtering is ignored. Example: Cells are displayed on a Week basis and the current availability domain of the executed view is: Hour Network RNC Cell Adjacency X X X X X Day Week X X Month

If the user Rolls-Up from Cell, the new network object will be Network and not RNC, because there is no RNC on Week but Network is available on Week periodicity. If the user Drills-Down from Cell, the new network objects will be all the outgoing Adjacencies for all the Cells because Adjacencies are available on Week periodicity.

18.5.15 Export Views


There is a limitation when exporting views in Excel to worksheets containing a maximum of 65,536 rows and 256 columns. In case of a worksheet containing more than 256 columns, a workaround is to use the Transpose function from Excel in the view from Analysis Desktop, which will return a horizontal range of cells, then export it using Export -> Display option. To export a graphical view in Excel, the Excel security level must be set to "low" or "medium". For example, in Excel 2002/2003, set the following: Select from the menu bar: Tools -> Macro -> Security... The "Security" window opens. In the Security Level tab, check Medium or Low, then click on [ OK ]. To export views: 1. One or several files can be exported. To export one view: Select the view, then select from the toolbar View -> Export -> Full, OR select an element in the view, right click and select Export -> Full The original full view is exported. Select the view, then select from the toolbar View -> Export -> Display, OR select an element in the view, right click and select Export -> Display The current displayed view (ie. with filter applied on executed view) is exported. If the view is already in the Executed View browser, an alternative is to click on the icon. This triggers an original full view export (Full Export and not Export Display). To export several views, click on the icon, OR choose View -> Export All... from the toolbar. This triggers an original full view export (Full Export and not Export Display). The Export View window opens.

19.1 Presentation
Note:
The MUSE_REPORT_TEMPLATE_CREATION_LICENSE license must be installed for the reports creation. The MUSE_REPORT_LICENSE license must be installed to execute reports. A report template is composed of a set of view templates. A Report, which is composed of Views, enables the user to display results coming from Indicators / Parameters in View Templates. A Report enables the user to display results coming from Indicators or Parameters in View Templates in a tabular way or graphical way. A Report contains the network objects, view templates and comment zones, and an Execution Context (period, interval, sampling, interpolation, reliability options). As a report template is composed of view templates, a report is composed of views. A report is also known as an Executed Report and is displayed in the Report Viewer. A report template is a formal description of a sequence of graphical representations of QoS indicator or parameter values. A report template is then used to build from its definition and for one or several objects (according to the type of report template) a report that displays indicator or parameter values for the considered date(s). A report template is mainly composed of one or more view templates and comment zones. The user may customize the report (e.g. define a title, view templates, specify the legend, etc.). The user can save the report as a report template so that the same template can be used to display any other report generated dynamically from the output of analysis services. The report template type is required during the creation of the report template and cannot be changed afterwards. Depending on the type of the QoS report template, different information is requested to define the report template. Two types of reports distinguish: Observation Reports There are four types of observation report types: Mono-Object Evolution Report Multi-Object Evolution Report Multi-Object Comparison Report Mono-Object Distribution Report. Mono-Object Distribution Reports are not available in WiMAX. The following table presents the types of observation reports. Number of Objects refers to the number of network objects used when creating the executed report. You can select a maximum number of 250 objects. The Covered Period refers to the date(s) entered in the Execution Context when creating the executed report. Report Type Mono-Object Evolution Number of Objects One Covered Period An interval View Constraints None

Warning Reports. For both observation and warning reports, you can select a maximum number of 250 objects. If you want to change the limit of 250 objects, you must modify the analysis.desktop.objects.reports.limit parameter from the following file:
/alcatel/muse/MUSEADWEBSTART/webapps/AD/rsc/com/alcatel/ muse/usm/config/ad_param.cfg

If you want to change the limit of 20 reports executed in the reports browser, you must modify the following parameters: analysis.desktop.views.inside.report.limit parameter from the following file: /alcatel/muse/MUSEADWEBSTART/webapps/AD/rsc/com/alcatel/
muse/usm/config/ad_param.cfg

MAX_REPORTS_TAB parameter from the following file:


/alcatel/muse/MUSEADWEBSTART/webapps/AD/rsc/com/alcatel/ muse/usm/config/ad_param.cfg

MAX_EXECUTED_REPORTS parameter from the following file: /alcatel/muse/MUSE_MAAT/reports/rsc/com/alcatel/


muse/maat/reports/ReportsResourceFile.cfg

In order for the updates to be taken into account in Analysis Desktop, the Analysis Desktop must be closed, then re-opened. Changing these parameters is not under Alcatel-Lucent responsibility. Putting higher values then the values tested in Alcatel-Lucent labs may cause higher response time or even request that do not answer.

19.1.1 Mono-Object Evolution Report


A mono-object evolution report enables the user to display the evolution of standard indicators or parameters for the selected object between two dates. The results are displayed in views in 2D graphs. A trend evolution can be requested on this type of report. One network object is selected, and an interval of time is specified. The result is the following:

19.1.2 Multi-Object Evolution Report


A multi-object evolution report enables the user to display the evolution of standard indicators or parameters for the selected objects between two dates. The results are displayed in views in 2D graphs (only one standard indicator or parameter per view). A trend evolution can be requested on this type of report. A color and a pattern are automatically set to each network object of the whole report (the color and pattern set of standard indicator or parameter is ignored since there is only one standard indicator or parameter per view). All network objects are displayed in the same order in all views. Many network objects are selected, and an interval of time is specified. The result is the following:

19.1.3 Multi-Object Comparison Report


A multi-object comparison report enables to compare several standard indicators or parameters for several objects at a given date. The results are displayed in views in 2D graphs. Many network objects are selected, and one date is specified. The result is the following:

19.1.4 Mono-Object Distribution Report


The feature described in this section is not planned for W-CDMA. A mono-object distribution report enables to display specific vector and/or matrix indicators and associated axis indicators for one object and a given date. The results are displayed in specific views, in 2D or 3D graphs depending on the chosen indicator (vector or matrix).

19.1.5 Warning Reports


A warning report is a specific report composed of many views in which each view is filtered according to its filtering indicator and sorted according to its sorting indicator. Therefore, the objects may be different from one view to another. The filtering mode is defined at a report level: it is a property of the warning template report. A warning report can contain only views with a filtering indicator. You can set the warning parameters to filter the cells according to different criteria. The criteria may be selected individually or combined: Best / Worst Best indicates the Good objects, and Worst indicates the Bad objects. Best is greater if UpperIsFault = false on the filtering indicator. Worst is greater if UpperIsFault = true on the filtering indicator. Top N Top N Variation Value The selection is made by keeping the Top N Best or Top N Worst Values. The selection is made by keeping the Top N Best or Top N Worst Values of the Absolute or Relative Variation based on the Reference Period. The selection is made by comparing the values of the filtering indicator with its associated thresholds, depending on the color choice. The thresholds are those defined on the filtering indicator. Filtering on Variation Value The selection is made by comparing the computed variation to the chosen variation. The computed variation is the difference between the value of the filtering indicators warning date and the value of the reference period for absolute variation. For relative variation the absolute variation is divided by the value on the warning date.

Filtering on Color Value

When computing a QoS warning report, two fields Before and After are used to retrieve the evolution of the filtering indicator for the returned objects around the report date. Before and After are given in number of periods with respect to the periodicity chosen when computing the report. This is extra information added to the tabular view and does not affect the filtering of data chosen for the warning report or the graphical view.

19.1.5.3 Warning Table


The warning table is made out of: The left part - containing the values of standard indicators for the report date The right part - containing the evolution of the filtering indicator for the period around the report date, according to the number of periods before and after the report date specified in the Execution Context. The values of the filtering indicator in the left and right part are colored according to the thresholds defined on the standard indicator. Note that for a Top N objects report, it is possible that all values are black. If variation is selected, the last column of the left part contains the variation value. The column is named Relative Variation or Absolute Variation (depending on the report template definition). For a relative variation, the value is displayed in percentage and the unit is % For an absolute variation, the unit of the filtering indicator is the unit of the variation column. If Sampling checks are selected, only the left part is colored according to the rules defined in Highlight in View (Section 18.5.2).

19.1.5.4 Warning Graphic


Variation, Before, and After on the Reference Period are not displayed on the graphic view. Warning for Area Threshold The following formula must be verified to consider an object in warning: IwarningDate >= value

When executing a report containing a view with indicators, if Nerr value is displayed for a cell, this indicates a numeric error due to a miscalculation of an indicator (for exemple when dividing by zero). If an entire view is empty, then a message is written in place of the report area explaining that there is no data available for the report: No data is available for the request. The display of "No data is available for the request" can be avoided in the case of a warning report definition when the operator has defined the Warning with the default value, by replacing the Top Objects default value 0, for example with the value 10: Warning Report Type: Top N Worst Top Objects: 0 -> change it here with value 10 Variation Value: 0.0 Value Filtering on Color: Red Only Reference Period: 1 Before: 4 After: 0 Depending on the number of network objects selected, the number and the type of report templates, see the possibilities below:

19.3.2.7 Roll Up / Drill Down Temporally


This sub use case allows the operator to Roll-up / Drill-down temporally in the executed report. As a prerequisite, the executed report must already exist in the tabular / graphical report. To Roll Up, select Report -> Temporal Scope -> Roll Up, or click on the icon from the report toolbar To Drill Down, select Report -> Temporal Scope -> Drill Down, or click on the icon from the report toolbar. The interval on the report changes depending on the temporal availability. Depending on the user preferences, the data is updated either in the executed report or in a new report. Below day periodicities such as: 4Hr, 1/2Hr,1/4Hr, RAW, etc. are treated as Hourly. If the user rolls up from one of these periodicities, it is the same as rolling up from Hour. Drilling down from Day always goes to Hour, if it is available, and not to one of the other below day periodicities. Example: Cells are displayed on a Day basis and the current availability domain of the executed report is: Hour Network RNC Cell Adjacency X X X X X Day Week Month X

If the user Rolls-Up from Day, the new period will be Month and not Week, because Cells are not available on Week but are on Month. The user cannot Drill-Down because Cells are not available on Hour.

19.3.2.8 Roll Up / Drill Down Spatially


This sub use case allows the operator to interactively Roll-up / Drill-down spatially in an executed report, and add or remove network objects. For this, the executed report must already exist in the tabular / graphical report. To Roll Up, select Report -> Spatial Scope -> Roll Up, or click on the icon from the report toolbar To Drill Down, select Report -> Spatial Scope -> Drill Down, or click on the icon from the report toolbar. The network objects in the report change depending on the spatial availability. The interval on the report changes depending on the spatial availability. The data is updated in the executed report. The Execution Context remains the same. When rolling-up or drilling-down to a relation, the relations that have the current network object as the source are used; i.e. if the current object is Cell1 and the user drills-down to Adjacency, then all the Adjacencies have Cell1 as the source are displayed in the resulting view. When triggering a Drill-Down for a mono-object evolution or a mono-object distribution report, then N reports are generated as when executing them. In the case of a warning report with Filtering Unavailable Objects option and consistent criteria, the QoS Availability Indicator must be available in the target availability domain when rolling-up or drilling-down. Example: Cells are displayed on a Week basis and the current availability domain of the executed report is: Hour Network RNC Cell Adjacency X X X X X Day Week X X Month

If the user Rolls-Up from Cell, the new network object will be Network and not RNC, because there is no RNC on Week but Network is available on Week periodicity. If the user Drills-Down from Cell, the new network objects will be all the outgoing Adjacencies for all the Cells because Adjacencies are available on Week periodicity.

19.4.10 Automatic Views and Legends Resizing in Report


You can choose to automatically resize all views and legends of a report (using the report tool bar or if the Default resize of views inside report user preference has been selected for report execution). The height of every view inside the report is adjusted such that for the views displayed in Tabular mode, the height of the view should be adjusted such that all lines are visible and not more. This means that each view can have a different height depending on its content (i.e. a view displaying 10 indicators is bigger than a view displaying 3 indicators). If a view has been rotated, the height must take care of the real dimension displayed vertically. Views displayed in graphical mode are displayed using a default height. So if they have been resized earlier, they are resized back to the default height. Every graphical view legend width is adjusted such that for views displayed in Graphical mode, the automatic resize updates the legend width up to the maximum requested width to make the complete legend visible (i.e. the maximum width among all views must be applied to all views). In other words, legend of all views must have the same width, this width being the maximum of all legend widths.

Each published view/report is stored in a web file repository in its existing XML format. The following assumplitions apply: Web publishing is applicable to views/reports/reports scheduling For W-CDMA, no nodes are selected in the view/report tree The date format of the executed view/report may not be the same in Analysis Desktop and the published view/report Views executed with temporary indicators can be published In this case, if the view/report is published after one of the temporary indicators has been deleted, an appropriate error message is displayed to the user. Views that do not request any execution context when executed cannot be published The views and reports can be re-executed with the modification of the temporal or spatial scope The temporal scope is limited to the start and end date. The spatial scope is limited to a subset of the existing spatial scope. If a view/report is executed with the publishing option selected, and in Analysis Desktop, inside the executed view/report another operation like spatial/temporal execution is performed, the view/report is no longer published. The publish option is implicitly unchecked from the executed view properties. If you want to publish the view/report again, edit the executed view properties and select the web publish option from it. The same procedure is used to interactively add objects to an executed view or to re-execute a view. If you execute a mono-object evolution report in Analysis Desktop with m network objects (m >1, e.g. m=4), the request consists of m objects. The response is shown in Analysis Desktop in four tabs for this case. In such a scenario, if the you selected the "web publish" option and later request for the published reports from the browser, four reports will be listed for publishing.

21 Diagnosis

21.1 Presentation
In case of one of the following situations, the operator may want to trigger diagnosis reports: A QoS indicator crossed a threshold A QoS indicator is suspected to be faulty, even if no threshold was crossed (it is even possible that no threshold is associated to the indicator) An alarm was received. To retrieve the cause for an identified QoS problem, or to check the logical configuration of any topology objects, particularly cells and adjacencies, diagnosis reports are executed. The diagnosis execution results can be viewd as: A synthetic summary, provided in the Views Browser The synthetic report of the standard diagnosis is displayed in icon format ( , , ).

A node per node detailed report, displayed on demand in the Reports Browser. Detailed diagnosis reports consist of test nodes grouped in a tree, based on causality links. A detailed diagnosis tree is not limited in size. The trees start with an observed QoS problem, an alarm or nothing is specified, and go from node to node to the possible reasons until a root problem cause is found. See also Execute Diagnosis (Section 21.5).

There are system available dignosis scenarios, but the user can also create their own. This is done through the Diagnosis Editor, which is based on the Eclipse platform concepts. The Eclipse framework is structured around the concept of plug-ins, and uses PyDev Node Code Editor. Diagnosis scenarios consist of test nodes grouped in a tree based on causality links. A link is oriented from a consequence node to a causal node. A consequence node can have several causal nodes. The execution of a diagnosis scenario is the process of executing its causual nodes applied on an execution context. For detailed information on Diagnosis Editor, Scenario Creation, Node Code Update, Introduction in Python, refer to NPO Diagnosis Development Guide.

22 Tuning

22.1 Presentation
The feature described in this section is not yet available for W-CDMA.

Note:

The MUSE_TUNING_LICENSE license must be installed, so that the Tuning menu is displayed in Analysis Desktop. The user must also have any one of the following FADs to see the Tuning menu item: MUSE_NPO_TUNING_PREPARATION or MUSE_NPO_ADMINISTRATE_TUNING_SESSIONS.

22.1.1 Definitions
After a network optimization session is completed, its results (monitoring QoS indicators, checking rules on the parameters, executing diagnosis) are used to tune the radio configuration, in order to correct the network misbehavior. The optimizer can define radio resource configuration modifications, frequency changes, neighborhood modifications, add adjacencies, change logical/design parameter values in a tuning session, which is then applied on the OMC-R. NPO allows you to copy the parameters from a cell into another cells using the reference cell. Also you are allowed to set a cell as non-tunable cell once this cell is well tuned. A Tuning Session can be considered as a template. It contains tuning operations and can be applied to create a tuning job. The limit for the number of objects for tuning session is 6000. A Tuning Job is a particular tuning session that has been applied at a given date. It contains a copy of the tuning session used to create it. It is parsed by MAAT Tuning to be split into different tuning tasks (one per impacted OMC-R). Many tuning jobs can be created from a tuning session (one job per application of the tuning session). A Tuning Task contains all tuning operations that are impacting one particular OMC-R.

22.1.2 Purge Completed Tuning Job(s)


Each night, NPO checks if there is any Tuning Job that is: Completed / failed / partially failed in the last 15 days (pre-defined delay with configurable value) Applied but not yet completed / failed / partially failed for more then 15 days (pre-defined delay with configurable value). These old not completed Tuning Jobs are then purged (deleted) from the database. A notification is sent to all users when a job is purged. If the tuning session of a job is opened and then this job is purged, an error message is displayed and the Tuning Session Viewer tab (of the Jobs Tuning Session) is closed.

22.1.3 Tuning Session Life Cycle


The common usage of tuning is: Create a Tuning Session Fill the Tuning Session with: Parameter Tuning Operations Topology Object Tuning Operations Topology Relation Tuning Operations Frequency Tuning Operations Advice Tuning Operations. Check the consistency of all the operations Apply the Tuning Session A new tuning job is instantiated, and can be applied or scheduled. After the tuning job is completed / failed / partially failed, it is purged. On tuning job execution, tuning tasks are instantiated and transferred to the OMC-R. The tuning tasks are applied, and a notification / result polling is sent to all NPO clients. After the tuning tasks are completed / failed, they are purged. Follow the application of the Tuning Session on the concerned OMC-R. The advanced usage of tuning is: Select the appropriate network objects and define them as being Reference Objects. These objects can now be used as templates when tuning other network objects. Select the appropriate network objects and inhibit all tuning operations for them. These objects can no longer be tuned. The available operations depend on ownership and/or status of the tuning sessions: If a tuning session is scheduled or applied but not yet completed / failed / partially failed, then it can only be copied If a tuning session is not owned by the operator (and the operator is not Administrator), then it can only be copied or opened in read only mode If a tuning session is owned by the operator (or the operator is the Administrator) and is created, or completed / failed / partially failed, then it can be opened, copied, deleted It is always possible to create a new tuning session Deleting a working zone results in the automatic re-parenting of the tuning sessions.

The Parameter Tuning Table displays the tuning values of the cells being tuned. The tuning values include Ref. Min, Ref. Value, Ref. Max, Operational, Planned, and Forecast values. An arrow icon indicates which line is currently being processed. The Parameter Tuning Values are: Reference value - the tuned parameter is set with the reference value Reference value may not be available for all types of network objects. When Reference Value is selected, the parameter is tuned using the Reference Value corresponding to the other parameter values of the processed network object. The Forecast parameter values retrieved from the current Tuning Session must be used when available. If no forecast value is available, then the Operational value must be used. If the parameter tuning operation is applied on more than one object and one parameter, there could then be different values for each combination (network object / parameter). Planned value - the tuned parameter is set with the planned value Planned value may not be available for all types of network objects, nor for all network objects of a given type (for example, there is no planned BSC and some operational Cell2G may not be planned). When Planned value is selected, the parameter is tuned using the value coming from the last imported planning project. If the parameter tuning operation is applied on more than one object and one parameter, there could then be different values for each combination (network object / parameter). User Defined value - the user must enter the value manually When User Defined is selected, the parameter is tuned using the value entered by the operator. If the parameter tuning operation is applied on more than one network object, all these objects are tuned with the same value (the one entered by the operator). Historical value - the tuned parameter is set with the value of the parameter for the current object at the selected date When Historical value is selected, the parameter is tuned using the value of the tuned object at the date selected by the operator. If the parameter tuning operation is applied on more than one network object and one parameter, there could then be different values for each combination (network object / parameter). Reference object - the tuned parameter is set with the value of the parameter for the selected reference object. When a Reference Object is selected, the parameter is tuned using the value of the parameter from the Reference Object. If the parameter tuning operation is applied on more than one network object, all these objects are tuned with the same value (the one coming from the Reference Object).

Select the tuned network objects / tuned parameters you want to propagate. If it is a leaf node, it is selected. If it is a non-leaf node, all items under that node are selected. It is possible to perform multiple selections and de-selections. 2. Perform one of the following actions: Click on the icon from the tuning session toolbar, then select Propagate Tuning Session, OR Select from the menu toolbar: Tuning -> Propagate -> Tuning Session. The network objects and/or parameters are selected in the appropriate trees/modes/standards. The selection is also made in non-active modes. So, if you switch to another mode containing tuned network objects (for example), they are displayed as selected. If there is an active filter on any active topology or function classification and some of the propagated network object(s) / function(s) are not visible due to this filter, you are informed and can choose to automatically remove the current filter (i.e. switch to No Filter), or to propagate anyway. If any propagated network object(s) and/or parameter(s) is not found, no error message is displayed.

22.6.2 Propagate Tuned Parameters of Network Object(s)


The tuned logical/design parameters of a tuning session can be propagated to the corresponding logical/design function trees. To propagate the parameters of a tuning session: 1. Click on the parameter(s) from the tuning session. 2. Perform one of the following actions:: Click on the icon from the tuning session toolbar, then select Propagate Tuned Parameters, OR Select from the menu toolbar Tuning -> Propagate -> Parameters The tuned logical/design parameters contained in the tuning session are selected in their respective trees/modes/standards. The selection is also made in non-active modes. So, if you switch to another mode containing tuned parameters, they are displayed as selected. If there is an active filter on any active function classification and some of the propagated parameter(s) are not visible due to this filter, you are informed and can choose to automatically remove the current filter (i.e. switch to No Filter), or to propagate anyway. If any propagated parameter(s) is not found, no error message is displayed.

23.1 Presentation
23.1.1 Overview
Note:
The MUSE_CARTOGRAPHY_LICENSE license must be installed for the cartography viewer to be available. The cartography module offers the user the following possibilities: Correlate the design view and the operational view Access the topology of operational elements Focus on faulty objects Highlight network objects Perform adjacency analysis and tuning Manage background maps, as well as strongest server maps Manage multiple map layers Network objects filtering Customizable rendering properties: overlaid raster and vector maps Levels of details based on network object density, controlable by the operator. View multi-technology objects for the same map. The following table gives the definitions of the main cartography terms: Term Raster Definition A bitmap image consisting of a matrix of pixels. The accepted formats for raster files are: .jpg. .jpeg, .bmp, .tif, .tiff, .png. A file that contains objects and shapes using mathematical coordinate systems and formulas. The accepted formats for vector files are: mif/mid. Used to display a set of raster and vector maps in the background, while all the other layers are put in front of this one by default. This is mainly the place where satellite/aerial maps, roads, rivers, elevation maps are displayed. NPO imports all the available background maps for: Vectors, in MIF format (MapInfo Interchange File Format) and in the long/lat geographical WGS84 co-ordinate system This procedure is explained in NPO Administration Guide, chapter Import Vector File. Rasters, in BMP, JPG, JPEG, TIF, TIFF, PNG format and in the long/lat geographical WGS84 co-ordinate system using .txt georeference files (two georeference points needed). This procedure is explained in NPO Administration Guide, chapter Import Raster File. Example: map of a country, RNP imported files like power map.

Term CCA (Cell Coverage Area)

Definition It is a data file containing polygons (layers of geo-referenced vectors) representing surfaces associated with a network object reference, coming from RNP files that are processed at the import. Each polygon of the files is referenced with a network Object ID. CCA Layers contain a list of polygons with rendering properties (line colour, fill colour/pattern, transparency coefficient). The Cell Coverage Area files can be of two types: MIF/MID files (containing polygons data), or Computed Voronoi. CCA layers show Voronoi cells, best server files coming from RNP, or any kind of polygon linked with a topology object reference. CCA objects are not movable and zoomable. The user can define which CCA is associated to the cell, by configuring the cartography configuration file. If only one CCA is available, the Cartography module makes this choice automatically. When at least two CCA are available, you should define which CCA is used for this association. All CCA can be simultaneously displayed.

Network Objects

The network objects from the topology classification (cell, BTS, Node B) that are dropped into the cartography viewport. This layer is further sub layered based on the object type (e.g. Cell3G, RNC). All the Cell3G objects are grouped into the Cell3G sub layer. Network Objects are not displayed in this sub layer. Relations Layer, another sub-layer, constitutes the adjacencies present in the viewport. Its sub layers are grouped based on the technology.

Icon Main Object Type Voronoi

A bitmap image used to render a network object in the cartography. The network object type that is the focus of a technology. Example: CELL3G for W-CDMA , CELL2G for GSM. Voronoi maps are computed polygons per object, that represent a zone where a function is maximized for the object. A Voronoi map displays the Voronoi contours of an area covered by a cell. Each of these areas is called a Best Server. If you want to use a Voronoi map for Adjacency Analysis, you must load it before you carry out the analysis. The used algorithm for Voronoi computing is the distance, and this function is tuned by the network object parameters.

Term Best Server

Definition The Best Server is a computed raster or vector file coming from RNP software. The Best Server computes polygons for cells showing the geographic zone that is the best telecom service. Several polygons can be set for a network object. The Best server file comes in a MAP info of MIF/MID format describing the polygon list, the rendering attributes, and additional information on each polygon (Network object reference). A thematic layer displays graphically the value of parameters. It contains sub-layers by sorting criteria, containing all selected objects that match the criteria. An executed thematic layer is a set of network objects sorted by criteria in sub layers and displayed in various shapes and colours (user defined rendering). Thematics are computed using thematic layers template and a set of network objects for a consolidated period. Example: a selection of cells drawn in colour depending on the call drop.

23.1.2 Cartography Browser


The Cartography browser is displayed as a tab in the Report browser. There can be multiple report tabs and multiple tuning tabs, but there is only one tab for cartography. The Cartography browser consists of five regions: Cartography Toolbar Cartography Viewport The rendering Viewport is the main window of the cartography module; it is a drawing area showing the visible layers at their right position in the current world coordinates system. Here background maps, CCA polygons, network objects, and thematic objects are displayed. This area can be zoomed and panned. Minimap The mininmap defines the overview of the actual viewport. At any point in time the entire map is visible in the mini map with a small rectangle. Layer Manager The layer manager contains a list of layers and sub-layers that are arranged in the hierarchical tree structure. A layer is a graphical component containing the description of the graphical content and not the graphical content itself. The layers can be moved up and down in the hierarchy, depending on the type of the layers. The sub-layer within the main layer can be moved up and down, except for the relation type and thematic layers. The root nodes and the leaf nodes, as well as their corresponding icons are defined in the configuration file. Information Bar The information bar shows the latitude and longitude of the cursor position in the map. It also contains a scale displaying the information regarding the distance of the line when the user is in compute distance mode. The number displayed in the scale changes dynamically when the viewport is zoomed or unzoomed.

The user can choose to hide both the layer manager and the minimap; in this case most of the screen space is filled with the cartography viewport. The Density Level is recalculated and the objects are adjusted according to the new density factor.

23.1.3 Display Network Objects in Viewport


For W-CDMA only 3G cells are available (RNC and NodeB are planned later). A site is a logical object, where one or more network objects are located. All the objects that have the same geographical position (latitude/ longitude) are usually grouped together as a site. The site is usually represented as a filled circle. It has the same latitude/longitude as that of the objects it contains. The site name is a parameter: of the Cell, for W-CDMA retrieved from the RNP cell id, for GSM. When no names are available, the site name is the latitude/longitude information. A sector is a line joining the site to the network objects. A line is displayed using the cartography configuration file attributes (thickness, color, length). The sector usually gives the information about the Azimuth of the cell. The Azimuth is the angle of the antenna of the cells in the network. Its value is taken from the OMC-R or RNP. The following figure presents the site elements as displayed in the viewport.

Cells are considered as the main object types in the viewport. They are always displayed as hexagons. To differentiate cells of different standards, a small hexagon containing the technology letter (G for GSM, U for W-CDMA, W for WiMAX) is displayed on the lower right corner of the hexagon, as shown in the figure below.

Size of the sector line: the azimuth line has a fixed graphical size, but when it is zoomed, so when the Density Levelis increased, the line is also thickened. This allows showing expanded views of collapsed cells.

23.1.4 Density Level


The viewport can contain thousands of objects, making the rendering of all objects along with all their properties practically impossible. This is why the density level notion is introduced. The density level is the level of details to which the network objects are displayed in the viewport. The table below explains the density level depending on the number of objects in the viewport.

23.1.5 Graphic Modes


Depending on the Density Level of the viewport, two modes of graphic display are automatically selected for the main object type: collapsed and full-expanded mode. Collapsed Mode Since the viewport may contain thousands of objects, some of them which are of similar type or located in the same site can be grouped together. In this case they are also called co-localized cells or collapsed cells. Three cells of different standards (GSM, W-CDMA, WiMAX) can be co-localized. The maximum number of cells co-localization for a given azimuth (or a sector) is: 2G: two co-localized cells 3G: four co-localized cells. An example of graphical representation of the collapsed cells is given below.

Figure 109: Example of Collapsed Cells The meaning of the graphical object presented above is: The double hexagon indicates that there are multiple cells situated at the same location (co-localized) U-3 means that there are three W-CDMA cells grouped together G-2 means that there are two GSM cells grouped together W-1 means that there is one WiMAX cell in the collapsed cell.

Figure 110: Collapsed Cells with Highlight Selection The meaning of the above graphical object is: The double hexagon indicates that there are multiple cells situated at the same location U-3 means that there are 3 W-CDMA cells grouped together G-2 means that there are 2 GSM cells grouped together W-1 means that there is 1 WiMAX cell in the collapsed cell.

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

23 Cartography

Full-expanded Mode The full expanded co-localized cells are rendered on the border of the circle representing the sector, by technology, with a larger space between co-localized objects. This allows rendering of adjacencies between co-localized objects. The sub-icon and background pattern drawing rule is defined in the configuration file.

23.1.6 Compute Voronoi Maps


Voronoi Maps are used: at the CCA files import. for THL template shapes. Every night, the Voronoi cells computing is triggered. CCAs are thus automatically created. For each target Voronoi layer, a Voronoi polygon is computed and stored in the database as a couple (MuseId, polygon data and rendering). Voronoi computation is based on cell localization. The following process is used: 1. The list of cells is retrieved using the filter defined in the Voronoi layer. 2. The barycenter of all the cells is calculated. A UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) projection centered on this point is then created. 3. If several cells are co-located, the same polygon is assigned. A list of sites is then built. A site is identified by a number (from 0 to the number of cells) and has a position. 4. Voronoi diagram computation is performed. The goal of the Voronoi algorithm is to divide the plane in polygons (there is one polygon per cell) so that each point inside a polygon is closer to the attached cell than to any other cell. 5. A post processing is made in order to find all the segments of a cell and to order them so that the last point of a segment is equal to the first point of the next segment. The polygon sizes are though adjusted to telecom constraints (umbrella, micro, macro cells..). 6. Best Server contour is created. The polygons are adjusted to represent more accurately a best server contour. To do that the edges of the polygons are moved to the nearest circle defining the maximum distance for a cell. 7. Cell coverage limitation takes place. The cell coverage is limited to a maximum distance. In the cartography configuration file, in each Voronoi layer definition, the radius of the circle is associated to the values of a single criterion. For example in GSM standard, the cell type of the GSM cell determines the circle size. To check the Voronoi Maps computation, view the traces in the following file: /alcatel/muse/data/trace/MUSE_VORONOI_JOB_MUSE_0.traces. To view the Voronoi maps inside the Cartography viewport, refer to Show/Hide Layer (Section 23.3.2).

23.1.7 Common Cartography Usage


The basic common usage of cartography module in NPO is:

Administrator Tasks

1. Import rasters, vectors and THL Template files in the database via web administration tools. 2. Import RNP planned data files in the Muse database.

Operator Tasks

3. Start the Analysis Desktop, choose a working zone, and open the Cartography browser. 4. Add new graphical layers from the database to display in the cartography viewer. 5. Add a set of Network Objects to display, by dragging and dropping them from the topology classification into the cartography viewport. 6. Select a set of Network Objects and a thematic layer template in the function browser. Drag and drop this double selection into the cartography viewer and enter additional execution context such as: periodicity, start and end time. The Analysis Desktop retrieves data from MUSE and generates the result (called an Executed thematic layer). The Analysis Desktop renders the executed thematic View as a new layer with sub layers for each sorting criterion. 7. Perform the needed operations with the displayed result: selecting, panning, zooming, centering, computing distances, display properties, hiding layers, modifying rendering properties. 8. Edit the executed thematic layer properties in order, for example, to define how to display these network objects or change the execution context. 9. If needed, save the modified executed thematic layer as a thematic layer template in order to be able to execute it again later without redefining all graphical properties. 10. Select a cell and display incoming and outgoing adjacencies. 11. Launch a wizard to manage the cells adjacencies and choose to add or remove adjacencies based on the geographical criterion. 12. Use the Highlight facility to find the set of network objects. 13. Propagate this subset of network objects to the topology manager. 14. Export the graphical results into several raster or vector formats.

23.2 Open Cartography


To open the cartography browser: Select from the menu bar: Cartography -> Launch Cartography, OR Click on from the menubar.

A set of predefined layers is displayed in the cartographic viewer corresponding to the current working zone if no layers were loaded in the previous session of this working zone. The last saved layer display configuration is retrieved from the user preferences if the working zone has not changed. Layers are downloaded and displayed. To enlarge the cartography window to window size, double click on its title tab, or click on the arraw from the splitter.

23.3 Layer Manager


23.3.1 Display Layer/Layer List
During the Cartography start up, the Cartography module fetches the layers associated with the working zone and depending on the user rights. The layers must be first imported by the administrator (see NPO Administration Guide, chapters Import Vector File and Import Raster File). A layer represents a set of sub layers, which are grouped in categories. Basically, layers and sub layers offer the same features. A sub-layer can be a raster or a group of vector objects. The layers and sub-layers are displayed in the layer manager. The user has no direct access to do this operation, this is only part of the Cartography module startup. For example: if the user starts the Cartography module for the first time, since the user does not have any last user layers in the working zone, the default layers associated with the working zone are loaded. Supposing that the user adds or removes the layer from the layer manager and closes the Cartography module. When they reopen the cartography module, the layers that were last saved in the user preferences are fetched and loaded. But when restarting the AD, if the user changes the working zone, the last saved layers in the user preferences are ignored and the layers associated with the new working zone are loaded.

23.3.6 Add Layer in Layer Manager


Add Layer in the CCA & Background Layer
1. Select a cartography layer and: Right click and select from the pop menu Add Layer..., OR Select from the menu bar: Cartography -> Add Layer... The "Add Layer to Layer Manager" window appears, showing the list of imported CCA files (including computed Voronoi) and background maps. 2. Select the appropriate imported layer, choose the background or the CCA type, then click on [ OK ]. The layer is downloaded in the cartography and is added in the layer manager tree, at the top of the layer type sub tree.

Add Layer in the Network Object Layer

1.

Drag and drop the appropriate Network objects from the Modes and Functions tree in the layer manager. A new layer is created for each newly dropped object type. For example when dropping Cell3G objects, if Cell3G sub layer is not present in the network object layer, then a new sub layer is created for Cell3G and the objects are added in the Cell3G layer.

2. Drag and drop the appropriate adjacencies from the Modes and Functions tree in the layer manager. The adjacencies and their corresponding network objects are added to the viewport. To view the adjacencies in the viewport, right click on a network object and choose to Display Adjacencies, or choose to Run Adjacency Analysis Wizard to Create/Delete Adjacencies. 3. The network objects are not visible in the layer manager, but the cell objects are rendered in the viewport. Whenever a new sub layer is added in the Network object layer, the parameters (only those that have enumerations) for the object type is fetched and displayed as the children of the sub layer node in the tree. For each parameter, all the enumeration values are added in the tree as sub node of the parameters. All these have checkboxes in the tree table, so you can shown/hide them in the viewport. Refer to Filter Network Objects in a Layer (Section 23.5.8).

23.3.7 Remove Layer from Layer Manager


1. Select the cartography layer(s) you want to remove, and: Right click and select from the pop menu Remove Layer..., OR Select from the menu bar: Cartography -> Remove Layer...

Note:

If you select a node in the tree that cannot be removed, then the menu items are disabled. The following must be taken into account: In the thematic layer, you can select only the thematic template node to remove the layer. You cannot remove the main thematic layer node, criterions or the steps in the criterion. In network object layer, you can select only the sub-layers like Cell3G, RNC for example, for removing from layer manager. You cannot remove the main network object layer and the main relations layer, under the Network Object layer node. You can only select the immediate sub-layer of the Relations layer, Adjacencies for example for that layer. In CCA layer, you can select only the leaf nodes for removing. User cannot remove the main CCA layer node. In background layer, you can select only the leaf nodes for removing. User cannot remove the main background layer node. 2. Click on [ Yes ] at the confirmation message: Are you sure you want to remove the following layer(s)? <list of layer(s)> The selected layer(s) is removed from the layer manager tree and the memory is freed. The layer is also removed from the Cartography viewport. The layer is not removed though from the database. The new layer list is stored in the implicit user preference so that when Cartography module is restarted only the new list is reloaded.

2. Select the appropriate export format, then click on [ OK ]. The following table presents the available export formats for different types of cartography files: Layer Type Raster layer Export Description This layer can be exported only as PNG format. This layer can be exported as full layer and viewport. The export can be done as a viewport only in the case when all the layers in layer manager are selected. Vector layer This layer can be exported in: MID/MIF format, as a full layer only PNG format, as a viewport only. When it is exported as PNG only, all the other layers in the Layer Manager that are seen in the viewport are considered as part of the PNG file.

Export Description This layer can be exported as PNG and KMZ formats using Viewport and All Network Objects and Thematic export. When it is exported in: PNG format, all the layers that are seen in the current viewport are also exported KMZ format, all the network objects, their corresponding THL objects, sites and sectors present in the viewport are also exported.

Thematic layer

This layer can be exported as PNG and KMZ formats using Viewport and All Network Objects and Thematic export. When it is exported as: PNG format, all the layers that are seen in the current viewport are also exported KMZ format, all the network objects, their corresponding THL objects, sites and sectors present in the viewport are also exported.

23.3.9 Google Earth Export


23.3.9.1 Presentation
The cartography information can be exported in order to be displayed in Google Earth through the KML interface. The KML (Keyhole Markup Language) is an XML grammar and file format for modeling and storing geographic features such as points, lines, images and polygons for display in Google Earth. For the Google Earth export cartography module, KMZ files (zipped KML files) are used. The KMZ files (.kmz extension is used) contain the KML exported cartography file and an /images directory containing a list of rasters for each exported sector. The supported version of XML schema for creating KMZ format file is KML 2.1. Google Earth KML 2.1 permits to: Specify icons and labels to identify locations on the earth Create different camera positions Use image overlays attached to the ground or screen Define styles to specify feature appearance Write HTML descriptions of features, including hyperlinks and images Use folders for hierarchical grouping of features Set level of details for each placemark. For more information, refer to the following links: http://earth.google.com http://earth.google.com/downloads.html http://earth.google.com/kml/kml_tut.html http://earth.google.com/kml/kml_tags_21.html

23.3.9.2 Export Cartography in KMZ Format


1. Export Displayed Layers/Viewport (Section 23.3.8) in KMZ format. 2. Double click on the saved KMZ file. Google Earth opens zooming to the region where the network objects and associated thematics of the KMZ file are.The following are exported in Google Earth: The site - exported as an icon at the correct geographical position with with the latitude-longitude coordinates The sectors - exported with the correct Azimuth angle display A line is displayed using the cartography configuration file attributes (thickness, color, length). The length is static, being configurable only in the cartography configuration file. A multiplier factor is used with the configuration file sector length. The main object type of the technology is exported as rasters (one raster per sector) The Azimuth is used as name of the cell group.

510 / 664

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

23 Cartography

The raster is generated per sector and put in the images repository of the export. Depending on the level of detail defined in the KMZ file, two levels of details are rasterized: The expanded mode The collapsed mode. The cell background is also exported. Only the visible objects are exported, filtered objects are ignored. Transparency/contrast/brightness is ignored for Network Objects. Special thematic rendering modes (mobile, standard deviation and voronoi) are not exported.

Note:

Adjacencies are not exported. If all the objects in the cell group are not visible (because the checkboxes of filtering or main layer visibility feature are on), their corresponding site, sector and thematics are not exported.

23.5.3 Add Network Objects in Viewport


To add network objects in the viewport, select them from the topology tree and drop them in the rendering viewport or layer manager. Only the network objects whose co-ordinates can be computed (except adjacencies) are added in the viewport and are highlighted. Only the cells with defined geographical coordinates can be displayed. If the dragged BTS or BSC have no coordinates, their coordinates can be calculated depending on the coordinates of the cells declared to them. The network objects themselves are not displayed in the network object layer. Only the parameters of the object with all its enumerations are displayed in the layer manager. Network objects are sorted by Object Type and a layer is created per ObjectType. For each network object, the corresponding site is computed: The distance of the network object with the existing sites is computed; if the distance is zero, the network object is added in the site If the network object has not found an existing site, the distance between all others network objects is computed When two objects are in the same location (distance is zero), a site is created and the objects are added in this site. The coordinates of the site are computed from the first object put in the site All new sites are added in the site layer (not displayed in the layer manager). For each adjacency, the packed link is computed if needed: The source object density level rendering mode and target density level graphic object are determined If there is already a packed link between the source and target graphic object, the adjacency is added in the list and the number of links is updated on the packed link If there is already a single link in the same direction between the source and target graphic object, the current single link is destroyed and a packed link is created with the two adjacencies in it If there is already a single link between the source graphic object and target graphic object, the single link is replaced by a bi-directional link.

Adjacencies do not have any co-ordinates, but they have the source and target objects, therefore they can still be displayed in the viewport. In case the filtering is applied in the layer manager for the dragged & dropped network objects, they are not shown in the viewport. Depending on the user preferences, whenever new objects are added to the viewport, their operational value or planned value are displayed first . Their density level is also updated based on the current density level selection.

23.5.4 Remove Network Objects from Viewport


Select one or several network objects in the viewport, right click and select Remove. The selected objects are removed from the viewport and from the THL Layer (if any) in the layer manager. For network objects: If there are no more network objects in the site, the site is removed from the rendering viewport If there are no more network objects in the layer manager, the layer is removed from the layer manager If there are no more network objects on an Azimuth line, the Azimuth line is removed If the removed network object was co-localized, the co-localized group is updated and the viewport is refreshed. If the collapsed group has only one object in it, the collapsed object is replaced by the expanded object Incoming relations and outgoing relations of the removed network objects are also removed from the adjacency layer and from the rendering viewport. For adjacencies: If there are no more adjacencies in a packed link, the packed link is destroyed If there are only two adjacencies in opposite direction in a packed link, the packed link is replaced by a bi-directional link If there is only one adjacency in a bi-directional link or in a packed link, the link is replaced by a single link. When a network object is removed from the viewport, the THL objects remain in the viewport.

23.5.8 Filter Network Objects in a Layer

For the network objects, the layer manager tree contains two checkboxes: S, which stands for Select When checking the Select checkbox in the Select column, all the network objects that are the children of the selected node in the tree are also selected. If the selected node is the leaf node, then that particular category of network objects are shown in the viewport immediately. V, which stands for Visible. When selecting the Visible checkbox in the Visible column, all the network objects that are the children of the selected node in the tree are shown in the viewport immediately. If the selected node is the leaf node, then that particular category of network objects are shown in the viewport immediately. When all the objects on the sector line become invisible, then the sector line itself becomes invisible. The following checkbox selection rules apply: If all sub-values of the same leaf node are selected, the leaf node remains selected If all sub-values of the same leaf node are unselected, the leaf node is also unselected If only some of the sub-values of the same leaf node are selected, the leaf node remains selected. The following logical functions apply: OR: between the sub-values of the same parameter AND: between the values of the different parameters. The network objects are displayed in the viewport only if they satisfy the filtering criteria in the layer manager. The selectability and visibility filter is applied to all the objects that are added to the viewport. The selectable and visiblity checkboxes are not available for some of the tree nodes. In this case, the component is not present in the layer manager. Find more information in the table below:

23.6 Thematic Layer Template (THL)


23.6.1 Presentation
The thematic layer is the equivalent of an executed view in cartography. It allows to display graphically the values of logical/design parameters, QoS indicators, diagnosis, rules, geographic (ex: distance from the POI) and customer data (free fields). This visual analysis can help you determine the best configuration and optimization characteristics to apply to the group. NPO offers a default Thematic Layer when installed, but you can create, modify and delete your own thematic layers using the Thematic Layer Manager. Thematic layers are available only when you are working with one of four types of network objects listed below: Cells Adjacencies BTS BSC. Thematics are computed using thematic layers template and a set of network objects for a consolidated period. It contains sorted objects given criteria with a specific rendering. Example: a selection of cells whose colour depends on the call drop. The criteria of the THL is configurable in the cartography configuration file.

23.6.2 Display THL Properties


Select a THL template from the function tree, right click and select Display THL Properties. The THL Properties page is opened in a HTML Browser. See Display and Edit Properties (Section 3.3). The following properties pages can be displayed: Generic Thematic Layer Template definition Attributes of rendering mode Graphical properties of a THL Attributes of interval distribution (steps and colors) Graphical properties of adjacency.

Description

Default Value

The availability domain for the THL template is for the selected object type, so the THL template is only available for the object type for which the THL template has been created. The temporal availability is that of the function used in the THL template. If density is selected, then it is available for all the temporal periodicity.

Special rendering mode

Used in the graphical properties window, the following can be selected: Positioning algorithm - to specify which algorithm is used to calculate the position of the mobile icon or the rectangular box. The following options are available: All, Timing Advance, Conventional GPS, MS-Based A-GPS, MS Assisted A-GPS. Shapes: Mobile and Standard deviation are available in the graphical properties, if this mode is selected. Mobile rendering mode is used so that a mobile symbol is displayed in the executed THL. The position of the mobile symbol is calculated using the selected positioning algorithm. Standard deviation rendering mode is used so that a rectangular box is displayed in the executed THL. The position of the box is calculated using the selected positioning algorithm. Show line. This option is enabled only when the Mobile or Standard deviation rendering mode is selected. This option specifies whether to draw a line from the network object to the mobile icon or the rectangular box.

Rules for Graphical Properties of THL Editor

There are certain rules for editing the graphical properties of the steps and of the criterion property. For the case when only one criterion is defined in the THL: It is mandatory to choose first the label and/or graphic (shape or icon) in any part, either at criterion level or at the step level If you selected a graphic property at the criterion level, then the same graphic property cannot be selected in the steps If you selected a graphic property at the step level, then the same graphic property cannot be selected in the criterion graphic property Shape and icon cannot be simultaneously selected for any step or inside the criterion If shape is selected in steps or criterion properties, then icon cannot be selected in steps The same shape and color can be selected for multiple steps If shape is selected in the criterion properties, then icon cannot be selected in steps If Voronoi is selected and a layer name is given in one step, in another step Voronoi can be selected with a different layer name If one property in one step is selected, that property should also be selected in all the other steps. For the case when two criteria are defined in the THL: It is mandatory to choose first the label and/or graphic (shape or icon) in any part, either at criterion level or at the step level If you selected a graphic property at the criterion level, then the same graphic property cannot be selected in the steps of first criterion, or in the second criterion, or in the steps of second criterion If you selected the graphic property at the step level, then the same graphic property cannot be selected in the criterion graphic property Shape and icon cannot be simultaneously selected for any step or inside the criterion Shape in one step and icon in another step cannot be selected. If shape is selected in one step, the icon is disabled in all the other steps If shape is selected in criterion properties, then icon cannot be selected in steps If Voronoi is selected and a layer name is given in one step, in another step Voronoi can be selected with different layer name If one property in one step is selected, that property should be selected in all other steps of that particular criterion.

23.6.7 Frequency Reuse


This section is not applicable for W-CDMA.

Presentation

This feature is used to make a graphical analysis regarding the re-use of one of the frequencies of the selected cell by comparing the other cells inside a geographical area. The geographical area is a circle centred on the selected cell. The radius of this circle is defined by the min and max values of the U_TIMEADVANCE parameter of the cell multiplied by a scaling factor (from 0.5 to 2.0). The minimum and maximum values of the scale are stored in the cartography configuration file The radius of the area, on which the frequency reuse check is performed, can be set inside these bounds in the execution context. The frequency reuse analysis is performed on all frequencies of the selected cell except in the case where RH or NH/RH is used (i.e. only BCCH frequency is checked). For every non RH hopping frequency of the studied cell, the same check is performed on all cells Ncell that satisfy the geographical criterion, i.e. cells inside the circle defined above: If Ncell is using RH or NH/RH, only BCCH of Ncell is checked

552 / 664

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

23 Cartography

If Ncell is using NH or BBH, all frequencies of Ncell are checked. According to the following legend, Ncell is displayed with the highest colour code (red > orange > yellow > green): Red = Ncell BCCH is a co-channel frequency with at least one frequency of studied cell Orange = Ncell TCH is a co-channel frequency with at least one frequency of studied cell Yellow = Ncell BCCH is an adjacent channel frequency with at least one frequency of studied cell Green = Ncell TCH is an adjacent channel frequency with at least one frequency of studied cell. Co-channel frequencies are those with identical ARFCN. Adjacent channel frequencies are those for which : ABS(ARFCN1 ARFCN2) = 1.

23.7 Adjacencies
This chapter describes how to manage adjacencies and run adjacency analysis.

23.7.1 Presentation
The Cartography Module offers the adjacencies analysis functionality. Graphic tools enable you to view existing and forecasted adjacency additions and deletions for a cell, and decide whether you want to add the forecast to a tuning session. Once this forecast is added to a tuning session, it can be exported to the OMC-R (Refer to Create Topology Relation Tuning Operation(s) (Section 22.5.10), Apply Tuning Session (Section 22.3.6), and GSM document: Tuning Browser User Guide). The following actions are applicable within the adjacencies analysis tool: Propose a choice of geographical discrimination: Circle, CCA buffer, U-Time-Advance for 2G Analysis: primitive returning adjacencies list (refer to Diagnosis (Section 21)) Find all target cells corresponding to the discrimination criteria Show some statistics about candidate selection Display a specific caption Automatically suggest adjacencies to be added or removed Allow the user to change the default proposal (by removing or adding any other adjacencies,).

23.7.2.2 Packed Links for Collapsed Source/Target Objects


Due to the amount of links to display (up to 32 outgoing adjacencies per W-CDMA cell for example), when more than one link have the same graphic source and same graphic target, the links are drawn in a packed mode showing a double link, the direction and the number of packed links. The list of links in the packed link can be displayed in a pop up window (Refer to Open Packed Link Content (Section 23.7.6)). The graphic source/target is the rendering mode of an object: Full Expanded co localized objects Expanded co localized objects Collapsed objects Object icon.

23.7.7 Run Adjacency Analysis Wizard to Create/Delete Adjacencies


The objective of this task is to make a proposal for the creation/deletion of adjacencies based on the topological distance between the cells. Based on this proposal, a tuning session can then be created and exported to the OMC-R. 1. To open the "Adjacency Analysis Wizard" window, select the cell with the packed adjacencies you want to display, then: Select Cartography -> Adjacency Wizard... from the menu toolbar, OR Right click and select Adjacency Wizard..., OR Click on icon from the Cartography toolbar.

The "Adjacency Analysis Wizard" window opens. All the incoming and outgoing adjacencies for the selected cell are displayed in the cartography viewport with the default adjacency color. The planned adjacencies are displayed in the proposed for addition color. All the other adjacencies are removed from the viewport. 2. Update the appropriate parameters, as explained in the table below. Parameter U_TIMEADVANCE: Operational Description Operational value of the U_TIMEADVANCE of the selected cell (in unity, and in parentheses the equivalent values in meters). The operational value is multiplied by the radius, and is considered as the radius for the Adjacency wizard calculations. U_TIMEADVANCE: Planned Planned value of U_TIMEADVANCE of the selected cell (in unity, and in parentheses the equivalent values in meters). The circle center is either the site location or the Voronoi barycentre. If there is no Voronoi map, the choice is the site location (by default the site is proposed). The default value (of radius) associated to the cell class of the selected cell. The Radius of the circle can be defined as: U_TIMEADVANCE - writes the distance in meters associated to the operational U_TIMEADVANCE value The operational value is multiplied by the radius, and is considered as the radius for the Adjacency wizard calculations. Cell Class Radius - writes the distance associated to the cell class. An edit area allows to enter the value in meters for the circle radius. By default, this edit box contains the value in meters associated to the operational U_TIMEADVANCE value. This value is then considered as the radius for Adjacency wizard calculations.

Parameter HO traffic filter

Description When the With HO filter checkbox is activated, the type of traffic density becomes editable. If the default traffic density Low Usage is checked, you can choose among one of the two possibilities proposed on the left of this checkbox. The OFF position resets the filter. HO traffic is grayed for W-CDMA.

Adjacency Analysis

This area summarises the information concerning the last analysis applied, with the number of adjacencies removed, added, and the total of forecast ones.

All planned only adjacencies are candidates for addition. All operational cells that are below the mentioned radius are candidates for addition. All other cells that are not candidates for addition are proposed as candidates for deletion. All adjacencies that are candidates for addition are changed to green color and all adjacencies that are candidates for deletion are changed to red color. 3. Click on [ Update ] to save the new values. The results are seen in the cartography viewport. If you change the radius in the text box, press the [ Update ] button again to see the new result. If there were no adjacencies between two network objects, and you clicked on [ Update ], and the network object lies inside the circle, adjacencies proposed for addition are drawn on both directions between these cells. If there already is only one adjacency between the cells, then only one adjacency, which is proposed for addition, is drawn in the reverse direction. The Operational cells are represented by a continuous line, and the non-operational cells by a dotted line. All planned adjacencies are represented by thick lines, and the not-planned adjacencies are represented by thin lines. A circle is drawn with the specified radius, centered as the user has specified (on Site location or on the Voronoi Barycenter). The incoming and outgoing adjacencies that are already displayed in the viewport are changed to green and red colored lines.

24.1 Presentation
The Alerters feature is not available for B10 GSM.

Note:

The MUSE_ALERTER_LICENSE must be installed for the Alerter related features to be available. Read more information about QoS Alerters in Quality of Service Alerters User Guide - 3BK 21263 AAAA PCZZA.

24.1.1 Definition
Alerters are defined to detect QoS problems and generate QoS alarms in the OMC-R, on the basis of reported Performance Measurement data, then automatically loaded inside the NPO. They are calculated from indicators. Alerters have some attributes associated: name, alarm id, predicates, validity and stability conditions. At the end of each PM reporting period, the loader processes algorithms on these alerters, using thresholds and validity conditions, to detect the appearance or suppression of an alarm. NPO alerters are not evaluated in real time, as the OMC-R alerters. The minimum supported evaluation period is 1 hour to evaluate hourly indicator values. Alerters can be: System defined, when they are delivered with the system and only some parameters may be customized by the operator Operator defined, these can be created from any Perfomance Indicator and are fully managed by the operator.

24.1.2 Types, Severities and States


The following alerter types are available: Standard alerters: generate alerts if the value of the indicators crosses the pre-defined thresholds The used threshold value is defined by the selected threshold color or by providing a user entered value. The stability parameter permits to decide when an alert is to be generated: for example if the given value is 3, an alert is generated only if the threshold is crossed during the 3 last GPs. If the sampling is used, the alert is not generated if the sampling conditions are not fulfilled (enabled only when the indicator has an associated sampling indicator). Variation alerters: generate alerts if the variation of the indicators value compared to a pre-defined base line exceeds the pre-defined thresholds Four parameters are needed to implement variation alerters: The number of observation periods P The number of smoothing periods Q Q is always less than P. It represents the number of periods needed to compute the first (F) and the last value (L) of the curve.

The delta in percentage that is used to determine if the alespirt must be generated The algorithm (Average, Max, Min, Sum). One period is equal to the alerter evaluation periodicity (e.g. if evaluation periodicity is 1 hour and P=4, observation period is equal to 4 hours) Example of variation computation with P=12 and Q=3:

Points value for F: 12, 14 16. For each algorithm F is: Average: F = (12+14+16)/Q = 14 Min: F = 12 Max: F = 16 Sum: F = 42. Points value for L: 8, 7 and 9. For each algorithm L is: Average: L = (8+7+9)/Q = 8 Min: L = 7 Max: L = 9 Sum: L =24. The variation coefficient is S = (L-F)/F Average: (8-14)/14 = -0.42 Min: (7-12)/12 = - 0.42 Max: (9-16)/16 = - 0.44 Sum: (24-42)/42 = - 0.43 S is displayed in percentage (S multiplied by 100). It can be then compared to the given delta percentage. If the absolute value of S is greater than the computed delta, then an alert is generated. Complex alerters: generate alerts in case a formula predicate is evaluated to true. This predicate is constructed with a formula using multiple indicators. The formula can use simple arithmetical and logical operators. For example, an alert is generated if ((I1 + I2 +I3)==0) && ((I1 + I2 + I4 + I5) > 5). The stability parameter is used as for standard alerters.

24 Alerters

Multiple severities can be defined for an alerter with different criteria. The supported severities are: Critical, Major, Warning. It is not mandatory to define all of the severities, only one among these three is mandatory. Three alerter states are used to manage the QoS Alerter: Activated: the alerter is enabled and may raise or clear alarms Deactivated: the alerter is disabled. There is no alarm on this alerter. The alerter is created in deactivated state. It can be deleted only in this state. Idle: the alerter is activated but disabled. It occurs when the current time is out of the alerters time scope. The alerter is still considered as activated.

24.1.3 Attributes
A QoS alerter is defined by the following attributes: Name Alerter Name Alerter ID Description The unique and user friendly name of the alerter. Identifier used for the alerter unicity. It is defined by the OMC-R, and not visible through the GUI. Owner User name of the alerter creator. System is used for system-defined alerters. Technology Category Alerter Type Alerter Family Attribute that defines the kind of radio technology: GSM, W-CDMA, or WIMAX. Defines the alerter origin: system, operator or 3GPP. Can be either: Standard (default and for 3GPP), Range, Variation. Telecom domain to be monitored, e.g. Traffic load, QoS, Handover, etc. Famillies are defined through a configuration file. Specific Information Managed Object Class Comment that describes the alerter and the generated alarm.

Objects present in the PM File. For instance, in W-CDMA it may be BB, Node B, RNC, CP, Cell, Ocell, Ecell, Dcell, Ccell, Interface, VC, VPCI_NB, VPCI_CN, VPCI_RNC. Type of Network Element that does the measurement (e.g. RNC or NodeB).

Reporting Element Spatial Scope

Defines if the formula is computed on the pre-defined MOC or on the object container (e.g. RNS, RNC or NodeB for W-CDMA). By default, the scope is the defined MOC.

Name Managed Object Instance List (Object Scope)

Description If empty, all objects related to the MOC are selected for the threshold checking. If not empty, the instance selection is a: Subset of network objects (optional): network element (e.g. objects under RNS, Node B or Iub), OR List of Managed objects instance: a list of instances (cf. 3GPP PM IRP createThresholdMonitor).

QoS Alarm ID

Identifies the alarm related to this alerter with the following configurable ranges: System alerter: 200000 to 200099 Operator defined alerter: 200100 to 201999 3GPP Threshold monitor: 202000 to 203999.

Preventive Action Activation Flag

Explanation text, used in the Proposed Repair Action alarm field.

Contains the current alerter status: activated/deactivated. It may be idle when the current time is out of the time scope.

Direction

Can be: Increasing, the severity is higher when the threshold value increases If the measured value is equal or greater than the threshold, the threshold is considered as crossed. Decreasing (the severity is lower when the threshold value increases) If the measured value is equal or lesser than the threshold, the threshold is considered as crossed. Its value may be set to range or empty for range alerter types.

Measurement type (Formula)

Can contain: Mathematical counter formula. All the counters are related to the same object and the same PM file. The formula may contain the following symbols: +, -, *, /, (, ), integer, or float constants. Example: (CDR221b+CDR221bc )/(RBR030a+RBR030b) The counter formula is release dependent, which implies that such alerters are also release dependent. Indicator, which needs an NPO synchronisation. This type of alerter is release independent.

Thresholds Hysteresis

1 to 4 threshold values, one per severity level: Warning, Minor, Major, Critical. 0 to 4. Each threshold can have a hysteresis. A threshold with a hysteresis has threshold-high and threshold-low values that are different from the threshold value. Within these two threshold levels, the indicator value is allowed to oscillate without triggering alarm raising or recovery conditions.

3BK 21216 AAAA PCZZA Ed.26

575 / 664

24 Alerters

Name Context Validation Stability

Description Boolean formula on other counters (another counter > another threshold). Empty by default. Period where formula and context should be verified to alert (equivalent to occurrence of the threshold crossing before rising the alert). It should be a multiple of GP period. Only the current GP by default (1). There are two stability parameters: one before raising the alarm, and the other before clearing the alarm. If stability is 1, only the last value of the indicator is evaluated. If stability is 2, the last two values of the indicator are evaluated. For example, if stability=2 and color=red, the last two values of the indicators must cross the threshold so that the red color be shown.

Time Scope

Period when the alerter is active during the week (e.g. working hours). The operator may select the same period for each day, or a specific period for each days of the week. There is no time scope by default (always active).

Granularity Period Time Shift

Should be set to the GP related to the counters used in the formula

Laps of time between the beginning of the reporting period and the PM analysis. The default value is 1 minute. This means that when the GP is 15 min, the PM analysis is done at xx:01:00, xx:16:00, xx:31:00 and xx:46:00. There is one global configuration parameter per GP put in the QoS Alerter IM configuration file.

Constraint The 3GPP alerters are not visible through the Alerter GUI. Only System and OMC-R operator defined alerters are visible. Same for 3GPP: System and OMC-R operator alerters are not visible through 3GPP.

25 Network Unavailability and Alarm Reporting Tool (NUART)

25.1 Presentation
This feature is not applicable for W-CDMA. NUART (Network Unavailability and Alarm Reporting Tool) enables the user to analyze and report network stability and availability. Each day, NUART imports from each declared OMC-R the most recent archive file containing: Network topology BSS/MFS alarms OMC-R operator commands Resource state changes Resource current state. The archive file is located on the OMC-R in the /alcatel/var/share/AFTR/LASER directory and has a specific name like <A1353RAInstnce>_day<n>.tgz, where: <A1353RAInstnce> uniquely identifies a specific OMC-R <n> identifies the day number. Examples: A1353RA_838bc90d_day01.tgz, A1353RA_838bc90d_day02.tgz, A1353RA_838bc90d_day03.tgz, . . . A1353RA_838bc90d_day31.tgz. Two types of NUART metadata are defined in the LASER simplified dictionary: Basic unavailabilities definition, used to generate QoS dictionaries that are imported in the NPO data warehouse Basic unavailabilities definition does not include alarms and logs indicators. Unavailability origins list definition, which is loaded into the NPO data warehouse. Unavailability indicators are a ratio based on the time during which the resources are down based on operational state. Unavailability can be: Planned: if it is scheduled for preventive maintenance on a resource for example Unplanned: if it is not scheduled, and results from a resource outage for example. They have boolean values: true/false. Unavailability indicators correct the split between planned and unplanned, as the automatic classification may not always be right. LASER files are defined in XML format. The LASER simplified dictionary file contains the following sections: Header, that describes the dictionary (name, version, technology, supplier)

26 Remote Inventory Data Management

26.1 Presentation
This feature is not applicable for W-CDMA. The Hardware Inventory module of Muse is a set of applications that can be accessed from the iconbox. It consists of Remote Hardware Inventory management and Customer Acceptance List management.

26.1.1 Remote Hardware Inventory


The HW inventory data of all network elements is necessary for the operators to prepare interventions on sites (such as HW retrofits). Using Remote HW Inventory, data is collected for the entire equipment very quickly and precisely, without the need to go on site. The operator has then the information allowing them to determine the exact number and locations of boards to be replaced (for example before introduction of a new release) or the detailed characteristics (especially the functional variant and ICS (correction status)) of a faulty board needing interventions. The inventory data is collected from the OMC-R, which in the case of W-CDMA may directly forward the request to the relevant network elements. By default the data is imported every night, but it is possible to change the periodicity, or to explicitly trigger an update for a part of the network (a BSS or RNS) - for this, refer to Load Inventory from NPO Administration Guide. The main formats of the HW Inventory files (both being supported by MUSE) are: INVENTAR, a text based format used by Alcatel-Lucent. Depending on the production of the file (the factory, the equipment itself) and on the type of equipment (not all equipment produce the same information), not all fields may be filled in

26 Remote Inventory Data Management

3GPP inventory, coming from the the W-CDMA OMC-R, which produces 3GPP inventory, and also adds the field coming from INVENTAR.

26.1.2 Customer Acceptance List


A Customer Acceptance List (CAL) is a file which contains the part number of all equipments which should be in the customer field. The content of a CAL is compared with the data coming from the field to check any discrepancies, in particular hardware modules in the field which are not covered by the CAL. There are two types of CAL files: Generic CALs Generic CALs are produced by Alcatel-Lucent and sent to the customer. Customer Specific CALs From the Generic CAL, the customer may remove the reference to equipment types not used in their network (for example: reference to G2 BTS for a customer having only 9100 BTS) and thus create their specific CAL. The Customer Mnemonic field is used to differentiate the two types of CAL files. The CAL file (generic file for Alcatel-Lucent, or customer specific CAL) is imported into MUSE after an Administrator request. This procedure is explained in NPO Administration Guide, section Import Customer Acceptance List. The administrator manipulates Hardware Inventory CAL files.
