Latency
1.2.1

Round Trip Time

Name: Maximum round trip latency


Purpose: To verify that Round Trip Time remains within acceptable range
Measurement method
Time stamp of PING Response received by the UE" - Time stamp of PING
Request sent by the UE
Acceptable range
Average time less than 40 ms

1.2.1.1
Test conditions and requirements
This test is to measure round trip time (RTT) in given test network in stationary conditions
Specifically the procedure starts at transmission of PING Request by the UE and ends at the reception of
PING Response at the UE.
Radio latency is round trip time between PDCP layer of UE and PDCP layer of eNB. Single user per cell
scenario is to be considered.
Radio latency will be measured using ordinary ping.
As shown in the figure below, end-to-end latency is the sum of radio latency and core latency.
But there can be some uncertainties in core latency because the backhaul delay and delay induced in PDN
are variable.
Core latency shall be separately measured and radio latency is calculated by end-to-end latency minus core
latency.

A vehicle for moving, a test UE, and a test laptop computer connected with GPS and the UE are

required.

2ms backhaul delay between eNB and EPC is assumed.

Assumes UE processing time = 1ms. (one way)

The network stability is certainly guaranteed.

Test description

1.

Locate the test UE at a predefined place with good link condition.

2.

The test point should be over the cell edge RF conditions. (RSRP: higher than -100dBm, SNR: higher than
5)

3.

Connect the UE to eNB. (Initial attachment)

4.

Generate 32-bytes ping packet 100 times using DOS windows.

5.

Calculate the min, average and max value of Round trip time.

6.

Average Round trip time is calculated using measured data between 5th percentile and 95th percentile.

1.2.1.3

Pass/Fail Criteria

The average round trip time shall be less than 40ms. (median of 95% tile)
