This is the first release for the beta test.

Organization
1 Overview
The Nastar is deployed on the EMS side of an operator's network. The Nastar collects required
analysis data from NEs through the EMS data center, and provides theme analysis for network
optimization.
2 Configuring OSSs and NE Information
Before enabling the Nastar to collect data from an OSS, you must configure the OSS and NE
information. After you configure information including the IP address of the OSS and software
version, the Nastar obtains the NE list managed by the OSS and analyzes the NEs in the NE list
based on the configured OSS information.
3 Collecting Basic Data
The basic data that needs to be collected by the Nastar contains configuration data, engineering
parameters, and map data. The Nastar collects and imports basic data into the database so that
you can perform various theme analysis tasks based on other analysis data such as VIP analysis
data and uplink interference analysis data to locate network problems.
4 Subscribing to UMTS Data Sources
This section describes how to enable data source switches by using the data source subscription
function before performing various UMTS theme analysis functions. After required data source
switches are enabled, the Nastar can collect required data from network elements (NEs). This
function is the prerequisite for all Nastar theme analysis functions.
5 UMTS Coverage Analysis
The UMTS coverage analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS coverage analysis data,
create UMTS coverage analysis tasks, query UMTS coverage analysis results, and export UMTS
coverage analysis reports from the Nastar. The Nastar analyzes the measurement reports (MRs)
sent by UEs and displays the coverage status, signal quality, and subscriber distribution of a
measurement cell. This function helps to locate wireless network problems such as weak
coverage, cross coverage, and poor service quality.
6 UMTS Intra-Frequency Neighboring Cell Analysis
The UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS
intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis data, create UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell
analysis tasks, query UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis results and possible
UMTS neighboring cell analysis results, and export UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell
analysis reports from the Nastar. Based on configuration data and engineering parameters, the
Nastar aggregates and analyzes measurement reports (MRs) and events reported by UEs to check
missing and redundant neighboring cell configuration of measurement cells and neighboring
cells whose priorities need to be adjusted. By using this function, the Nastar directly displays
the required information, helping you solve network quality problems that are caused by
redundant or missing neighboring cell configuration or improper configuration of neighboring
cell priorities.

7 UMTS/GSM Neighboring Cell Analysis


The UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS/GSM
neighboring cell analysis data, create UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis tasks, query UMTS/
GSM neighboring cell analysis results, and export UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis results
from the Nastar. The Nastar allows you to check for redundant and missing inter-RAT
neighboring cells. This function helps to solve the network quality problems caused by redundant
and missing neighboring cell configuration.
8 UMTS Pilot Pollution Analysis
The UMTS pilot pollution analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS pilot pollution analysis
data, create UMTS pilot pollution analysis tasks, query UMTS pilot pollution analysis results,
and export UMTS pilot pollution analysis reports from the Nastar. By analyzing subscriber calls,
the Nastar identifies cells where pilot pollution exists, cells that cause interference, and severity
of cell pollution. The Nastar also displays the analysis results on a map so that you can learn the
detailed situation of pilot pollution. This function reduces the drive test (DT) time and improves
the accuracy of problem location.
9 UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis
The UMTS uplink interference analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS uplink
interference analysis data, create UMTS uplink interference analysis tasks, and query UMTS
uplink interference analysis reports. With the uplink interference analysis function, the Nastar
analyzes Received Total Wideband Power(RTWP) data reported by NodeBs and preliminarily
locates NodeBs that are affected by interference by ranking NodeBs based on their interference.
Then, you can view the charts showing the overall RTWP trends of the selected cells to determine
whether the average interference intensity of main and diversity antennas is proper and judge
the interference characteristics. You can also view the distribution chart of main and diversity
difference to determine whether the main and diversity antennas are connected correctly.
10 UMTS Terminal Analysis
This section describes the UMTS terminal analysis tasks, including the management of terminal
analysis tasks and the query and export of terminal analysis reports. The system analyzes the
KPIs in the call records of terminal users. This function helps operators identify the terminals
with poor performance in the UMTS network, therefore encouraging terminal manufacturers to
improve the terminals with poor performance and guide subscribers to purchase terminals with
good performance. In this case, subscribers can obtain stable services, and the subscriber
satisfaction can be improved.
11 UMTS VIP Analysis
The UMTS VIP analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS VIP analysis data, create UMTS
VIP analysis tasks, query UMTS VIP analysis results, and export UMTS VIP analysis reports
from the Nastar. By monitoring the KPIs related to the quality of service (QoS) of VIP
subscribers, the Nastar helps you identify and solve the network problems that may cause VIP
complaints so that the service quality of VIP subscribers is ensured and the satisfaction of VIP
subscribers is improved.
12 UMTS Complaint Analysis Support
The UMTS complaint analysis support function enables you to create UMTS complaint analysis
support tasks, query UMTS complaint analysis support results, and export UMTS complaint
analysis support reports from the Nastar. After receiving a complaint, the Nastar can quickly
locate call history records (CHRs) that are related to a problem cell involved in the complaint
based on the known problem cell and International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) of the

drop, the Nastar helps you locate and solve problems. This function improves the efficiency of
complaint handling and increases the subscriber satisfaction.
13 UMTS Cell Performance Analysis
The UMTS cell performance analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS cell performance
analysis data, create UMTS cell performance analysis tasks, query UMTS cell performance
analysis results, and export UMTS cell performance analysis reports from the Nastar. You can
learn the actual causes of abnormal calls in problem cells by querying abnormal call data. This
function helps to improve the service quality and subscriber satisfaction.
14 UMTS Service Geographic Analysis
UMTS service geographic analysis involves obtaining UMTS service geographic analysis data,
creating a UMTS service geographic analysis task, viewing the UMTS service geographic
analysis result, and exporting a UMTS service geographic analysis report. The Nastar displays
the relevant information on the map based on the data collected for the entire network to show
the distribution of network coverage, traffic, and abnormal events in an intuitive and
comprehensive manner.
15 GSM/UMTS Complaint Analysis Support
The GSM/UMTS complaint analysis support function helps operators handle subscriber
complaints from GSM and UMTS networks at the same time, which effectively reduces
operation costs. The GSM/UMTS complaint analysis support function enables users to manage
complaint analysis support tasks, and query and export complaint analysis support reports. After
receiving a subscriber complaint, the Nastar quickly identifies call records related to the
complaint subscriber in a problem cell. By analyzing call access and release information and
service quality information in call records, the Nastar helps locate and solve complaint problems.
This improves the efficiency of handling complaints and increases subscriber satisfaction.

2 Configuring OSSs and NE Information

2.1 Basic Knowledge of OSS Management


This section describes the basic knowledge about the Operations Support System (OSS)
management functions. You should grasp the basic knowledge before performing management
operations.
In the OSS management, objects represent the physical or logical entities on the network. A
physical or logical entity, namely, an object, can be an OSS or an NE.
l

Operations Support System


The operations support system (OSS) defines network management devices that can be
connected with the Nastar. The Nastar collects the required data from a specified FTP server
according to the relevant attributes set in the OSS and saves the data as files in a specified
path on the Nastar server.

NE
NEs are used to identify network devices, such as BTS and BSC.NEs can be classified into
physical NEs and virtual NEs.
Physical NEs are actual telecommunication devices of Huawei on the network.
Virtual NEs are the NEs that actually do not exist or are telecommunications devices
of other vendors on the network.

The OSS management subsystem provides the basic functions for managing objects. The
subsystems such as centralized task management add objects to the GUI through the OSS
management subsystem.
The OSS management of the Nastar enables you to create and delete OSSs, view and modify
OSS attributes, and manage the information about NEs managed by the OSS.

2.2 Creating OSSs and the Managed NEs


This section describes how to create OSSs. You can create an OSS to initialize the protocol of
the interface between the Nastar and the EMS device so that the Nastar accesses the EMS device
through the interface to obtain the required data. In addition, you can set NEs managed by the
OSS so that the Nastar collects required data from the selected NEs.

Mode 1: Importing a map file for the first time


If the map files in .wor or .tab format, the importing speed and the operation response are
slow. It is recommended to convert the map files in .wor or .tab format to the map files
in .sxwu format by referring to Converting the Map File Format. You can import the map
files in .sxwu format to improve the importing speed and the operation efficiency.

Mode 2: Loading a map file again (the map file was imported last time)
If you have already imported a map file, you are advised to load the map files to speed up
the importing process.

CAUTION
When you perform operations in the GIS window, you are advised not to import or load map
files repeatedly. This is to prevent any unknown impact.

Procedure
Step 1 Select a mode to import map files depending on the actual situation.

3.7.2 Converting the Map File Format


This section describes how to convert a map file in .wor or .tab format to .sxwu to improve the
efficiency of importing map files.

Prerequisite
You have logged in to the Nastar client.

Context
It takes a long time to import a map file in .wor or .tab format. If users on multiple clients attempt
to import the same map file, the work efficiency is low.
To solve this problem, the Nastar allows users to convert a map file in .wor or .tab format to .sxwu
and import the file because the Nastar can quickly identify and import map files in .sxwu format
and allows multiple users to share the map files in .sxwu format. This greatly improves the
efficiency of importing map files. It is recommended to convert the map files by one person,
and then share them to others.

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Maintenance > Map Convert on the menu bar.
Step 2 In the displayed Parameter Config dialog box, set the conversion parameter.
l Maps Path, select a map file in .wor or .tab format.
l Save Path, set the save path after format conversion.
l Save Name, set the file name after format conversion.
Step 3 Click OK.

About This Chapter


This section describes how to enable data source switches by using the data source subscription
function before performing various UMTS theme analysis functions. After required data source
switches are enabled, the Nastar can collect required data from network elements (NEs). This
function is the prerequisite for all Nastar theme analysis functions.
4.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Data Source Subscription
This section describes the functions and usage scenarios of UMTS data source subscription.
4.2 Setting Data Source Switches (As an Administrator User)
Before any Nastar theme analysis task is performed, the administrator user must enable data
source switches in batches for all theme analysis functions on network elements (NEs) through
the data source subscription function. This ensures that NEs can collect the required analysis
data for the Nastar.
4.3 Querying the Data Source Switch Status on the Live Network (As a Common User)
Before performing a theme analysis task on the Nastar, you must query the data source switch
status on the live network to verify that all required data source switches are enabled. If a required

NOTE

MR data is required for the Nastar UMTS coverage analysis. Therefore, the Nastar delivers MML commands
through the data subscription function to enable the RNC-level MR data function and the cell-level MR data
function on RNCs to obtain analysis data. After these functions are enabled, the CPU usage on the Signaling
Processing Units (SPUs) of the RNCs is increased by about 8% relatively. For example, if the SPU CPU usage
is 45%, the increase 8% relatively is equal to the increase 3.6% absolutely, that is 3.6% / 45% = 8%. Other
modules of the RNCs are not affected.

Usage Scenario
Data source subscription is a function with a high security level. The following two types of
users have different permissions to perform this function:
l

Administrators: An administrator user is authorized to query the status of data source


switches and set data source switches.

Common users: A common user is only authorized to query the status of data source
switches.
NOTE

User rights can be set by choosing Security > Security Management.

Figure 4-1 describes the usage scenarios for the two types of users performing data source
subscription.

Common users can query whether


the data source status on the live
network meets analysis
requirements before performing
various theme analysis End to End
(E2E) tasks. If the data source
status does not meet analysis
requirements, common users can
request the administrator to enable
the required data source switches.

A common user queries the data


source status on network A. After
querying, the user finds that the
data source switch for VIP
analysis in cell a is set to OFF,
which does not meet analysis
requirements. Therefore, the user
requests the administrator to
enable this switch.
After receiving the application,
the administrator sets the data
source switch for VIP analysis in
cell a to ON.

4.2 Setting Data Source Switches (As an Administrator User)


Before any Nastar theme analysis task is performed, the administrator user must enable data
source switches in batches for all theme analysis functions on network elements (NEs) through
the data source subscription function. This ensures that NEs can collect the required analysis
data for the Nastar.

Description

ON

Indicates that a data source switch is enabled on an NE and the status


meets the Nastar analysis requirements.

OFF

Indicates that a data source switch is disabled on an NE and the status


does not meet the Nastar analysis requirements.

Unkno
wn

Indicates that the status of a data source switch on an NE is unknown.


That is, the Nastar cannot determine the status of the data source switch.
The possible causes are as follows:
l The Nastar does not communicate with the M2000/operation and
maintenance center (OMC) properly.
l The M2000/OMC does not communicate with the NE properly.
l The NE is not in the normal operating state, for example, the NE is
being upgraded or powered off.

Nonsu
pport

Indicates that the Nastar does not allow users to query the status of a data
source switch on an NE. For example: An NE is a base station controller.
A data source switch on the live network can only be enabled for cells.
In this case, the data source switches on this NE are in the Nonsupport
state.

All required data source switches must be set to ON for the normal execution of analysis tasks.
If a required data source switch is set to OFF, request the administrator to enable this switch.
NOTE

l It usually takes about 2 seconds to query the data source switch status on an NE. If you query the data source
switch status on multiple NEs, it may take some time.
l You can click Cancel to cancel the query.

UMTS Coverage Analysis

About This Chapter


The UMTS coverage analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS coverage analysis data,
create UMTS coverage analysis tasks, query UMTS coverage analysis results, and export UMTS
coverage analysis reports from the Nastar. The Nastar analyzes the measurement reports (MRs)
sent by UEs and displays the coverage status, signal quality, and subscriber distribution of a
measurement cell. This function helps to locate wireless network problems such as weak
coverage, cross coverage, and poor service quality.
5.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Coverage Analysis
This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS coverage analysis. The Nastar performs
UMTS coverage analysis based on the measurement reports (MRs) reported by UEs and then
generates analysis results. These analysis results help users learn the coverage of measurement
cells and identify problems such as weak coverage, cross coverage, and poor service quality.
5.2 UMTS Coverage Analysis Process
This section describes the UMTS coverage analysis process.
5.3 Obtaining UMTS Coverage Analysis Data
This section describes how to enable the Nastar to obtain UMTS coverage analysis data. You

to enable the Nastar to import the collected analysis data into the database.
5.4 Creating UMTS Coverage Analysis Tasks
This section describes how to create UMTS coverage analysis tasks. After you create a UMTS
coverage analysis task, the Nastar periodically analyze measurement reports (MRs) that are sent
by UEs and saved in the database. By querying the analysis results, you can learn the coverage
of the selected measurement cell and determine network problems such as weak coverage, cross
coverage, and poor service quality.
5.5 Querying UMTS Coverage Analysis Results
This section describes how to query UMTS coverage analysis reports. You can query the
measurement reports (MRs) sent by UEs within a specific period and then learn about the
coverage situation of the selected measurement cell according to the queried results. This
function helps you determine whether problems such as weak coverage, cross coverage, or poor
service quality exist.

5.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Coverage Analysis


This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS coverage analysis. The Nastar performs
UMTS coverage analysis based on the measurement reports (MRs) reported by UEs and then
generates analysis results. These analysis results help users learn the coverage of measurement
cells and identify problems such as weak coverage, cross coverage, and poor service quality.
An MR reported by a UE contains downlink RSCP, Ec/No, and transmit propagation delay (TP).
After the conditions for coverage analysis are set, the Nastar analyzes the coverage of the selected
cell and then displays analysis results in a two-dimensional (2-D) chart, a three-dimensional (3D) chart, and a table.
l

In the 2-D chart, information about the following services is displayed: AMR, VP, BE,
AMR+BE, and OTHER services. Information about each service contains three counters,
namely, RSCP_DL, Ec/No_DL, and TP.

In the 3-D chart, information about CS services and PS services is displayed. Information
about both CS services and PS services contains three counters, namely, RSCP_DL, Ec/
No_DL, and TP.

In the overview table, the counter statistics of all services involved in the 2-D chart are
displayed.

The results of coverage analysis can be exported as .csv files. Users can optimize cells with
coverage problems according to the exported analysis results.

You need to choose Maintenance > Task Management on the


Nastar client to open the Task Management window, and then
create a UMTS coverage analysis data import task. After you
create the task, the Nastar periodically imports the coverage data
files saved on the Nastar server into the database.

Check the
integrity of
UMTS coverage
analysis data

You can double-click System Function > Data Query in the


Analysis Task Management window on the Nastar client to
open the Query Data dialog box and then verify that all the
required UMTS coverage analysis data is imported into the
database.

Create a UMTS

In the Analysis Task Management window on the Nastar client,


you can create a UMTS coverage analysis task. After you create
the task, the Nastar periodically retrieves UMTS coverage
analysis data and UMTS configuration data from the database,
analyzes the retrieved data, and then generates analysis results.

Query UMTS
coverage
analysis results

You can view the analysis results of the UMTS coverage analysis
tasks that are executed successfully. The analysis result helps
you learn the coverage of the selected measurement cell and
determine cell problems such as weak coverage, cross coverage,
and poor service quality on the live network.

Export UMTS
coverage
analysis reports

You can enable the Nastar client to export UMTS coverage


analysis results as files.

5.3 Obtaining UMTS Coverage Analysis Data


This section describes how to enable the Nastar to obtain UMTS coverage analysis data. You
can create an E2E task to enable the Nastar to collect analysis data and create a data import task
to enable the Nastar to import the collected analysis data into the database.

Context
NOTE

MR data is required for the Nastar UMTS coverage analysis. Therefore, the Nastar delivers MML commands
through the data subscription function to enable the RNC-level MR data function and the cell-level MR data
function on RNCs to obtain analysis data. After these functions are enabled, the CPU usage on the Signaling
Processing Units (SPUs) of the RNCs is increased by about 8% relatively. For example, if the SPU CPU usage
is 45%, the increase 8% relatively is equal to the increase 3.6% absolutely, that is 3.6% / 45% = 8%. Other
modules of the RNCs are not affected.

5.3.1 Creating UMTS E2E Tasks


This section describes how to create a E2E task. After you create an E2E task, the Nastar issues
rule files to the M2000 and then the M2000 sends rule files to the related SAU. The SAU performs
the raw data pre-processing tasks through the rule files, and then generate the pre-processed data.
The Nastar create the data collection task automatically to collect the pre-processed data from
the SAU to the Nastar.

5 UMTS Coverage Analysis

Prerequisite
l

You have logged in to the Nastar client.

The OSS and NEs related to the analysis task are created. For details, see Creating OSSs
and the Managed NEs.

Configuration data is imported into the Nastar database. For details, see Importing
Configuration Data.

The data source is subscribed and the status is Open.

You are advised to observe the E2E task for five minutes to check whether the task is
executed normally after you create the E2E task by performing the following steps. If
Status of the E2E task is still Running after five minutes, it indicates that the E2E task is
executed normally. If Status of the E2E task is Complete or Failed after five minutes, it
indicates that the E2E task fails to be executed. Note that the Nastar monitors the tasks by
checking the task status on the M2000 at an interval of five minutes.

If the Nastar manages a network involved in different time zones, and if the local time in
the area where the Nastar server is deployed is earlier than the local time in the area where
the SAU is deployed, E2E tasks running on the Nastar will be complete in a four-hour delay.
This ensures that all required data is imported.

Context

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Maintenance > E2E Task Management. The E2E Task Management window is
displayed.
Step 2 Click New Task. The New Task dialog box is displayed.
TIP

You can also double-click the E2E task in the navigation tree in the E2E Task Management window, or
right-click the E2E task and click New Task, the New Task dialog box is displayed.

Step 3 Set the basic task information.

OSS to be analyzed.

Step 4 Click Next.


Step 5 Set Begin Time and End Time, and select one or multiple NEs from the NE list.

CAUTION
You must consider the time zone difference between the Nastar and the SAU when setting the
task execution range. For example: The Nastar delivers an E2E task to be executed from 04:00
to 05:00. The local time on the SAU is two hours later than the local time on the Nastar server.
In this case, the SAU preprocesses and reports the data related to the E2E task to the Nastar
server after 06:00 in the local time on the Nastar server. Therefore, the Nastar completes E2E
tasks in a four-hour delay to ensure that all required data is collected to the Nastar server.
You are advised to create an E2E task one day before creating a theme analysis task.

5.3.2 Creating a Data Import Task


This section describes how to create a data import task. The Nastar periodically imports the
analysis data such as the performance data, VIP analysis data, and cell performance analysis
data on the Nastar server into the database to perform various theme analysis tasks.

Prerequisite
You have logged in to the Nastar client.

Context
l

A data import task is a user-defined scheduled task. You can create only one user-defined
scheduled task of the same type.

The data import task can only be executed periodically. The unit of the task execution period
can be Hour, Day, Week, or Month. The data import task of the same type can only be
created once on the Nastar. After the task is created, the Nastar automatically imports data
at the preset time.

A data import task can be performed only after the related data collection task is complete
(if the data collection task running type is period, only after the first period). Otherwise,
the integrity of the imported data may be affected.

You need to create data import tasks of different types based on the type of an analysis task.

Analysis

About This Chapter


The UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS
intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis data, create UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell
analysis tasks, query UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis results and possible
UMTS neighboring cell analysis results, and export UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell
analysis reports from the Nastar. Based on configuration data and engineering parameters, the
Nastar aggregates and analyzes measurement reports (MRs) and events reported by UEs to check
missing and redundant neighboring cell configuration of measurement cells and neighboring
cells whose priorities need to be adjusted. By using this function, the Nastar directly displays
the required information, helping you solve network quality problems that are caused by
redundant or missing neighboring cell configuration or improper configuration of neighboring
cell priorities.
6.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Intra-Frequency Neighboring Cell Analysis
This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis,
such as the UMTS neighboring cell analysis function, application scenarios, and algorithms for

6 UMTS Intra-Frequency Neighboring Cell Analysis

6.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Intra-Frequency


Neighboring Cell Analysis
This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis,
such as the UMTS neighboring cell analysis function, application scenarios, and algorithms for
neighboring cell analysis. The basic knowledge helps you perform the operations related to
UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis.

6.1.1 UMTS Intra-Frequency Neighboring Cell Analysis


This section describes the UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis function. With this
function, the Nastar collects and analyzes the measurement reports (MRs) and events reported
by UEs, helping to determine missing and redundant neighboring cells of a measurement cell
and identify the neighboring cells whose priorities need to be adjusted. The MRs can reflect the
actual propagation of radio signals. By displaying required information, the Nastar helps users
solve problems caused by missing or redundant neighboring cell configuration or improper
setting of neighboring cell priorities.

Neighboring Cell Analysis


Proper neighboring relations ensure that a UE at the border of a cell initiates a handover in a
timely manner. In this case, handover gain is obtained, and interference inside the network is
reduced. Furthermore, the quality of network services is improved, and network performance is
stable.
Based on configuration data and engineering parameters, the Nastar performs intra-frequency
neighboring cell analysis for the selected measurement cell according to the MRs and events
reported by UEs. Based on obtained measurement data, the Nastar determines missing and
redundant neighboring cells, identifies neighboring cells whose priorities need to be adjusted,
and provides suggestions on adjusting neighboring cell priorities. According to the suggestions
provided by the Nastar, you can compare the suggested neighboring cell priorities and actual
neighboring cell priorities and then adjust the priorities of some neighboring cells accordingly.
Analysis results are displayed in a line chart or a bar chart. Different types of neighboring cells
and final ranking of neighboring cell priorities are displayed in different colors in the chart.
You can export the results of the neighboring cell analysis as a .csv, .xls, or .xlsx file, which
helps to optimize the neighboring relations on the network.
Some cells may share the same frequency and same primary scrambling code (PSC) with the
dominant cell. Therefore, the Nastar first identifies possible neighboring cells from undefined
neighboring cells in the measurement results by UARFCNs and PSCs and then predicts the signal
strength based on cell information including site location, antenna azimuth, and antenna gain.
After identifying possible neighboring cells, the Nastar generates analysis reports about possible
neighboring cells.
In addition, the Nastar can display UMTS neighboring cell analysis results and possible
neighboring cell analysis results on maps and highlight test cells, missing neighboring cells,
redundant neighboring cells, defined and undefined neighboring cells in different colors. This
function helps users query neighboring relationships.

Limitation and Impact


The following factors may affect the accuracy of neighboring cell analysis results:
l

Accuracy of engineering parameters

Stability of networks in some aspects including setting of air interface parameters and
network topology, during the collection of UMTS neighboring cell analysis data
Table 6-1 describes the network changes and their impacts.

Table 6-1 Network changes and their impacts


Network Change

Impact

Addition or deletion of
BTSs

Affects the network coverage and handovers between cells. In


this case, analysis results cannot accurately reflect the current
network status.

Change of antenna data,


such as azimuth, tilt
angle, or height

Results in changes of cell coverage and network interference.

Change of handover
relations and parameters

Affects the statistical results during the period of collecting the


data about neighboring relations and the period of optimizing
neighboring relations.

Change of RNC topology


or other NE topology

The RNC is responsible for collecting statistical results.


Therefore, a measurement task cannot be performed properly if
the network topology is changed. You are advised to keep the
network topology unchanged during data collection.

NOTE

The Nastar can measure and analyze UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cells only during soft handovers
or softer handovers.

6.1.2 Algorithms for UMTS Intra-Frequency Neighboring Cell


Analysis
This section describes the algorithms for UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis, such
as the algorithms used to check missing and redundant neighboring cells and the algorithm used
to provide suggested priorities of neighboring cells.
Neighboring cell analysis algorithms are used to check missing and redundant neighboring cells
and to provide suggested priorities of neighboring cells.
l

The algorithm for providing suggested priorities of neighboring cells is as follows:


1.

Calculate the overall score of each neighboring cell.


The Nastar calculates the overall score of a neighboring cell according to the algorithm
by considering the factors such as the number of times the neighboring cell occurs,
relative difference value between the Ec/Io of the neighboring cell and the Ec/Io of
the dominant cell, and absolute difference value between the Ec/Io of the neighboring
cell and the Ec/Io of the dominant cell.

Network Optimization User Guide (UMTS)

2.

6 UMTS Intra-Frequency Neighboring Cell Analysis

Neighboring cells are ranked in descending order based on their overall scores. The
priorities of the neighboring cells are directly proportional to their overall scores.
The highest suggested priority for a neighboring cell is 1.

The algorithm for checking missing neighboring cells is as follows:


If the suggested priority of an undefined neighboring cell is smaller than the number of
suggested neighboring cells, this undefined neighboring cell is considered as a missing
neighboring cell and needs to be configured according to the suggestion.

The algorithm for checking redundant neighboring cells is as follows:


If the suggested priority of a defined neighboring cell is equal to or greater than the number
of suggested neighboring cells, this defined neighboring cell is considered as a redundant
neighboring cell and needs to be deleted according to the suggestion.

6.3 Obtaining UMTS Intra-Frequency Neighboring Cell


Analysis Data
This section describes how to enable the Nastar to obtain UMTS intra-frequency neighboring
cell analysis data. You can create an E2E task to enable the Nastar to collect analysis data and
create a data import task to enable the Nastar to import the collected analysis data into the
database.

Context
NOTE

MR data is required for the Nastar UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis. Therefore, the Nastar
delivers MML commands through the data subscription function to enable the RNC-level MR data function and
the cell-level MR data function on RNCs to obtain analysis data. After these functions are enabled, the CPU
usage on the Signaling Processing Units (SPUs) of the RNCs is increased by about 8% relatively. For example,
if the SPU CPU usage is 45%, the increase 8% relatively is equal to the increase 3.6% absolutely, that is 3.6% /
45% = 8%. Other modules of the RNCs are not affected.

6.3.1 Creating UMTS E2E Tasks


This section describes how to create a E2E task. After you create an E2E task, the Nastar issues
rule files to the M2000 and then the M2000 sends rule files to the related SAU. The SAU performs
the raw data pre-processing tasks through the rule files, and then generate the pre-processed data.
The Nastar create the data collection task automatically to collect the pre-processed data from
the SAU to the Nastar.

Prerequisite
l

You have logged in to the Nastar client.

The OSS and NEs related to the analysis task are created. For details, see Creating OSSs
and the Managed NEs.

Configuration data is imported into the Nastar database. For details, see Importing
Configuration Data.

The data source is subscribed and the status is Open.

You are advised to observe the E2E task for five minutes to check whether the task is
executed normally after you create the E2E task by performing the following steps. If
Status of the E2E task is still Running after five minutes, it indicates that the E2E task is
executed normally. If Status of the E2E task is Complete or Failed after five minutes, it
indicates that the E2E task fails to be executed. Note that the Nastar monitors the tasks by
checking the task status on the M2000 at an interval of five minutes.

If the Nastar manages a network involved in different time zones, and if the local time in
the area where the Nastar server is deployed is earlier than the local time in the area where
the SAU is deployed, E2E tasks running on the Nastar will be complete in a four-hour delay.
This ensures that all required data is imported.

6.4 Creating UMTS Intra-Frequency Neighboring Cell


Analysis Tasks
This section describes how to create UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis tasks.
After you create a UMTS intra-frequency neighboring cell analysis task, the Nastar periodically
analyzes UMTS neighboring cell analysis data, UMTS configuration data, and engineering
parameters in the database to identify redundant and missing neighboring cell configurations

Analysis
This section describes basic knowledge of UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis, such as the
UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis function, application scenarios, and algorithms for
neighboring cell analysis. The basic knowledge helps you perform the operations related to
UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis.

7.1.1 UMTS/GSM Neighboring Cell Analysis Function


This section describes the UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis function. This function is used
to analyze defined and undefined GSM neighboring cells of UMTS cells. Based on the analysis
results, you can check and handle problems caused by redundant or missing neighboring cell
configuration. This function enables the Nastar directly displays the required information,
helping you solve network quality problems that are caused by the redundant or missing
neighboring cell configuration.

Inter-RAT Neighboring Cell Analysis


After you set the conditions for checking the redundant or missing neighboring cell
configurations, the Nastar performs inter-RAT neighboring cell analysis for the selected cell.
The analysis results are displayed in a bar chart. In the bar chart, the defined GSM neighboring
cells, undefined GSM neighboring cells, redundant GSM neighboring cells, and missing GSM
neighboring cells are illustrated in different colors.
The Nastar can export analysis results of inter-RAT neighboring cells to a file. In the inter-RAT
neighboring cell analysis result window, you can export the result file of inter-RAT neighboring
cell analysis after adding the missing neighboring cells and deleting the redundant neighboring
cells. The result file provides the related optimization suggestions.
You can export the results of the inter-RAT neighboring cell analysis as a .csv, .xls, or .xlsx file,
which helps to optimize the neighboring relations on the network.

Requirements for the Network


The network must be stable during the period when neighboring cell data is collected. Otherwise,
the analysis results may be inaccurate. Table 7-1 describes the network changes and their
impacts.

Network Change

Impact

Change of handover
relations and parameters

Affects the statistical results during the period of collecting the


data about neighboring relations and the period of optimizing
neighboring relations.

Change of RNC topology


or other NE topology

The RNC is responsible for collecting statistical results.


Therefore, a measurement task cannot be performed properly if
the network topology is changed. You are advised to keep the
network topology unchanged during data collection.

7.1.2 Algorithms for UMTS/GSM Neighboring Cell Analysis


This section describes the algorithms for UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis, such as the
algorithms used to check missing and redundant neighboring cells.
Based on the information reported by UEs such as the signal level of a cell, the Nastar calculates
the overall scores and then sorts defined and undefined GSM neighboring cells. According to
the sequence of GSM neighboring cells and result analysis chart, users can analyze the
neighboring cells depending on the actual network situation, and then provide suggestions on
the missing GSM neighboring cell configuration and redundant GSM neighboring cells to be
deleted.
The algorithm for the UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis is as follows:
1.

Calculate the overall scores of all the GSM neighboring cells of the measurement cell.
The sequence of GSM neighboring cells is arranged on the basis of the strength of receive
level. That is, the stronger the signal level is, the smaller the sequence number of the GSM
neighboring cell and the higher the score is. The score is set during the creation of a UMTS/
GSM neighboring cell analysis task.

2.

Determine missing neighboring cells.


When the sequence number of an undefined GSM neighboring cell is smaller than or equal
to Neighboring Cell Count Setting that is set when a UMTS/GSM neighboring cell
analysis task is created, the GSM neighboring cell is regarded as a missing neighboring
cell.

3.

Determine redundant neighboring cells.


When the sequence number of a defined GSM neighboring cell is larger than Neighboring
Cell Count Setting that is set when creating a UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis task,
the GSM neighboring cell is regarded as a redundant neighboring cell.

7.2 UMTS/GSM Neighboring Cell Analysis Process

Nastar
Network Optimization User Guide (UMTS)

7 UMTS/GSM Neighboring Cell Analysis

Context
NOTE

MR data is required for the Nastar UMTS/GSM neighboring cell analysis. Therefore, the Nastar delivers MML
commands through the data subscription function to enable the RNC-level MR data function and the cell-level
MR data function on RNCs to obtain analysis data. After these functions are enabled, the CPU usage on the
Signaling Processing Units (SPUs) of the RNCs is increased by about 8% relatively. For example, if the SPU
CPU usage is 45%, the increase 8% relatively is equal to the increase 3.6% absolutely, that is 3.6% / 45% = 8%.
Other modules of the RNCs are not affected.

7.3.1 Creating UMTS E2E Tasks


This section describes how to create a E2E task. After you create an E2E task, the Nastar issues
rule files to the M2000 and then the M2000 sends rule files to the related SAU. The SAU performs
the raw data pre-processing tasks through the rule files, and then generate the pre-processed data.
The Nastar create the data collection task automatically to collect the pre-processed data from
the SAU to the Nastar.

Prerequisite
l

You have logged in to the Nastar client.

The OSS and NEs related to the analysis task are created. For details, see Creating OSSs
and the Managed NEs.

Configuration data is imported into the Nastar database. For details, see Importing
Configuration Data.

The data source is subscribed and the status is Open.

You are advised to observe the E2E task for five minutes to check whether the task is
executed normally after you create the E2E task by performing the following steps. If
Status of the E2E task is still Running after five minutes, it indicates that the E2E task is
executed normally. If Status of the E2E task is Complete or Failed after five minutes, it
indicates that the E2E task fails to be executed. Note that the Nastar monitors the tasks by
checking the task status on the M2000 at an interval of five minutes.

If the Nastar manages a network involved in different time zones, and if the local time in
the area where the Nastar server is deployed is earlier than the local time in the area where
the SAU is deployed, E2E tasks running on the Nastar will be complete in a four-hour delay.
This ensures that all required data is imported.

Context

If you select the UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Data Task, you need to set OSS Name to select the
OSS to be analyzed.

Step 4 Click Next.


Step 5 Set Begin Time and End Time, and select one or multiple NEs from the NE list.

CAUTION
You must consider the time zone difference between the Nastar and the SAU when setting the
task execution range. For example: The Nastar delivers an E2E task to be executed from 04:00
to 05:00. The local time on the SAU is two hours later than the local time on the Nastar server.
In this case, the SAU preprocesses and reports the data related to the E2E task to the Nastar
server after 06:00 in the local time on the Nastar server. Therefore, the Nastar completes E2E
tasks in a four-hour delay to ensure that all required data is collected to the Nastar server.
You are advised to create an E2E task one day before creating a theme analysis task.
The Nastar supports the function of searching for objects in the object navigation tree. After you
click an object in the navigation tree, you can press Ctrl+F to search for and locate an object.

7.3.2 Creating a Data Import Task


This section describes how to create a data import task. The Nastar periodically imports the
analysis data such as the performance data, VIP analysis data, and cell performance analysis
data on the Nastar server into the database to perform various theme analysis tasks.

Prerequisite
You have logged in to the Nastar client.

Context
l

A data import task is a user-defined scheduled task. You can create only one user-defined
scheduled task of the same type.

The data import task can only be executed periodically. The unit of the task execution period
can be Hour, Day, Week, or Month. The data import task of the same type can only be
created once on the Nastar. After the task is created, the Nastar automatically imports data
at the preset time.

A data import task can be performed only after the related data collection task is complete
(if the data collection task running type is period, only after the first period). Otherwise,
the integrity of the imported data may be affected.

You need to create data import tasks of different types based on the type of an analysis task.
Table 7-3 shows the mapping between analysis task types and types of data import tasks.

UMTS Pilot Pollution Analysis

About This Chapter


The UMTS pilot pollution analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS pilot pollution analysis
data, create UMTS pilot pollution analysis tasks, query UMTS pilot pollution analysis results,
and export UMTS pilot pollution analysis reports from the Nastar. By analyzing subscriber calls,
the Nastar identifies cells where pilot pollution exists, cells that cause interference, and severity
of cell pollution. The Nastar also displays the analysis results on a map so that you can learn the
detailed situation of pilot pollution. This function reduces the drive test (DT) time and improves
the accuracy of problem location.
8.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Pilot Pollution Analysis

8 UMTS Pilot Pollution Analysis

8.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Pilot Pollution Analysis


The UMTS pilot pollution analysis function enables you to analyze routine calls. By analyzing
query reports, the Nastar identifies cells where pilot pollution exists, cells that cause interference,
and severity of cell pollution and displays the analysis results on a map. In this manner, you can
directly learn the details about pilot pollution.
Pilot pollution refers to the situation that there are excessive signals with close strength in an
area in a network using code division multiple access (CDMA) technology. Generally, excessive
radio signals form a cross coverage to the neighboring cells due to improper site layout or impacts
of geographical locations. In this case, pilot pollution is produced.
The pilot pollution affects network performance in the following aspects:
l

Reduced call connection ratio


When there is pilot pollution, the UE constantly performs cell reselection because it cannot
stably camp on a cell. During a call, the UE constantly changes serving cells, leading to
call failure easily.

Increased call drop rate


When there is pilot pollution, ping-pong hangovers occur frequently during a call because
the pilot is not strong enough to be the dominant pilot. As a result, the call drop rate
increases.

Reduced system capacity


Pilot pollution causes strong interference. Hence, the receive sensitivity of the system is
improved, and thus signals far away from the NodeB cannot be received. As a result, the
system capacity is reduced.

High Block Error Rate (BLER)


When there is pilot pollution, there is strong interference. Hence, the BLER is increased,
leading to the deterioration of the voice quality and the decrease in the data transmission
rate.

Severe pilot pollution may cause problems such as call drops, deteriorated voice quality, reduced
system capacity, and network interference. Based on routine calls, the Nastar analyzes the pilot
pollution, thus helping in locating polluted cells and polluter cells. Used with the GIS, this
function enables the Nastar to display polluted cells and polluter cells in geographic mode, thus
improving the efficiency of problem analysis and location.

8.2 UMTS Pilot Pollution Analysis Process

Procedure

Description

Create a UMTS
pilot pollution
analysis data
import task

You need to choose Maintenance > Task Management on the


Nastar client to open the Task Management window and then
create a UMTS pilot pollution analysis data import task. After
you create the task, the Nastar periodically imports the pilot
pollution analysis data files saved on the Nastar server into the
database.

Check the
integrity of
UMTS pilot
pollution
analysis data

You can double-click System Function > Data Query in the


Analysis Task Management window on the Nastar client to
open the Query Data dialog box and then verify that all the
required UMTS pilot pollution analysis data is imported into the
database.

Create a UMTS
pilot pollution
analysis task

In the Analysis Task Management window on the Nastar client,


you can create a pilot pollution analysis task. After you create
the task, the Nastar retrieves UMTS pilot pollution analysis data
and UMTS configuration data from the database, analyzes the
data, and then generates analysis results.

Query UMTS
pilot pollution
analysis results

You can view the analysis results of the UMTS pilot pollution
analysis tasks that are executed successfully and also perform
comprehensive analysis by map.
In addition, you can export the result files through the one-click
method in the analysis result query interface.

Export UMTS
pilot pollution
analysis reports

You can enable the Nastar client to export UMTS pilot pollution
analysis results as files.

8.3 Obtaining UMTS Pilot Pollution Analysis Data


This section describes how to enable the Nastar to obtain UMTS pilot pollution analysis data.
You can create an E2E task to enable the Nastar to collect analysis data and create a data import
task to enable the Nastar to import the collected analysis data into the database.

Context
NOTE

MR data is required for the Nastar UMTS pilot pollution analysis. Therefore, the Nastar delivers MML
commands through the data subscription function to enable the RNC-level MR data function and the cell-level
MR data function on RNCs to obtain analysis data. After these functions are enabled, the CPU usage on the
Signaling Processing Units (SPUs) of the RNCs is increased by about 8% relatively. For example, if the SPU
CPU usage is 45%, the increase 8% relatively is equal to the increase 3.6% absolutely, that is 3.6% / 45% = 8%.
Other modules of the RNCs are not affected.

8.3.1 Creating UMTS E2E Tasks


This section describes how to create a E2E task. After you create an E2E task, the Nastar issues
rule files to the M2000 and then the M2000 sends rule files to the related SAU. The SAU performs
the raw data pre-processing tasks through the rule files, and then generate the pre-processed data.

task execution range. For example: The Nastar delivers an E2E task to be executed from 04:00
to 05:00. The local time on the SAU is two hours later than the local time on the Nastar server.
In this case, the SAU preprocesses and reports the data related to the E2E task to the Nastar
server after 06:00 in the local time on the Nastar server. Therefore, the Nastar completes E2E
tasks in a four-hour delay to ensure that all required data is collected to the Nastar server.
You are advised to create an E2E task one day before creating a theme analysis task.
The Nastar supports the function of searching for objects in the object navigation tree. After you
click an object in the navigation tree, you can press Ctrl+F to search for and locate an object.
Step 6 Optional: Set the specified parameters of the E2E task. Only some tasks need to perform the

8.3.2 Creating a Data Import Task


This section describes how to create a data import task. The Nastar periodically imports the
analysis data such as the performance data, VIP analysis data, and cell performance analysis
data on the Nastar server into the database to perform various theme analysis tasks.

Prerequisite
You have logged in to the Nastar client.

Context
l

A data import task is a user-defined scheduled task. You can create only one user-defined
scheduled task of the same type.

The data import task can only be executed periodically. The unit of the task execution period
can be Hour, Day, Week, or Month. The data import task of the same type can only be
created once on the Nastar. After the task is created, the Nastar automatically imports data
at the preset time.

A data import task can be performed only after the related data collection task is complete
(if the data collection task running type is period, only after the first period). Otherwise,
the integrity of the imported data may be affected.

You need to create data import tasks of different types based on the type of an analysis task.
Table 8-2 shows the mapping between analysis task types and types of data import tasks.

9 UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis

UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis

About This Chapter


The UMTS uplink interference analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS uplink
interference analysis data, create UMTS uplink interference analysis tasks, and query UMTS
uplink interference analysis reports. With the uplink interference analysis function, the Nastar
analyzes Received Total Wideband Power(RTWP) data reported by NodeBs and preliminarily
locates NodeBs that are affected by interference by ranking NodeBs based on their interference.
Then, you can view the charts showing the overall RTWP trends of the selected cells to determine
whether the average interference intensity of main and diversity antennas is proper and judge
the interference characteristics. You can also view the distribution chart of main and diversity
difference to determine whether the main and diversity antennas are connected correctly.
9.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis
This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS uplink interference analysis. With this
function, the Nastar analyzes Received Total Wideband Power (RTWP) data reported by the
NodeBs and generates analysis results for identifying interference on the network. In addition,
the Nastar analyzes the signal strength of the main and diversity antennas on the uplink, helping
users locate antenna problems.
9.2 UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Process
This section describes the UMTS uplink interference analysis process.
9.3 Obtaining UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Data
This section describes how to enable the Nastar to obtain UMTS uplink interference analysis
data. You can create an E2E task to enable the Nastar to collect analysis data and create a data
import task to enable the Nastar to import the collected analysis data into the database.
9.4 Creating UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Tasks
This section describes how to create UMTS uplink interference analysis tasks. After you create
a UMTS uplink interference analysis task, the Nastar periodically analyzes Received Total
Wideband Power(RTWP) data of each NodeB in the database. By querying analysis results, you
can learn about the signal strength of the main and diversity antennas and the change trend of
signal strength of the selected measurement cell within a certain period. The information
provides references for identifying network interference.
9.5 Querying UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Results

Analysis
This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS uplink interference analysis. With this
function, the Nastar analyzes Received Total Wideband Power (RTWP) data reported by the
NodeBs and generates analysis results for identifying interference on the network. In addition,
the Nastar analyzes the signal strength of the main and diversity antennas on the uplink, helping
users locate antenna problems.
Uplink interference has an impact on network quality. If uplink interference exists, the call
quality, network coverage, and network capacity may be greatly affected, and call drops,
handover problems, and congestion may occur frequently. If interference and load are not clearly
identified, load control cannot be performed properly.
With the uplink interference analysis function, the Nastar analyzes RTWP data reported by
NodeBs and preliminarily locates NodeBs that are affected by interference by ranking NodeBs
based on their interference. Then, you can view the charts showing the overall RTWP trends of
the selected cells to determine whether the average interference intensity of main and diversity
antennas is proper and judge the interference characteristics. You can also view the distribution
chart of main and diversity difference to determine whether the main and diversity antennas are
connected correctly.
After the conditions for uplink interference analysis are set, the Nastar performs uplink
interference analysis on the selected cells. The analysis results are displayed in a line chart. The
signal strength of the main and diversity antennas at each time point and the overall change
trends are displayed in different colors in the chart.

Configuration data is imported into the Nastar database. For details, see Importing
Configuration Data.

The data source is subscribed and the status is Open.

You are advised to observe the E2E task for five minutes to check whether the task is
executed normally after you create the E2E task by performing the following steps. If
Status of the E2E task is still Running after five minutes, it indicates that the E2E task is
executed normally. If Status of the E2E task is Complete or Failed after five minutes, it
indicates that the E2E task fails to be executed. Note that the Nastar monitors the tasks by
checking the task status on the M2000 at an interval of five minutes.

If the Nastar manages a network involved in different time zones, and if the local time in
the area where the Nastar server is deployed is earlier than the local time in the area where
the SAU is deployed, E2E tasks running on the Nastar will be complete in a four-hour delay.
This ensures that all required data is imported.

Context

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Maintenance > E2E Task Management. The E2E Task Management window is
displayed.
Step 2 Click New Task. The New Task dialog box is displayed.
TIP

You can also double-click the E2E task in the navigation tree in the E2E Task Management window, or
right-click the E2E task and click New Task, the New Task dialog box is displayed.

Step 3 Set the basic task information.


1.

In the Task Name field, enter the name of the analysis data E2E task.

2.

In the E2E Task Management > E2E Task List, choose *** Analysis Data Task.
NOTE

If you select the UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Data Task, you need to set OSS Name to select the
OSS to be analyzed.

Step 4 Click Next.


Step 5 Set Begin Time and End Time, and select one or multiple NEs from the NE list.

CAUTION
You must consider the time zone difference between the Nastar and the SAU when setting the
task execution range. For example: The Nastar delivers an E2E task to be executed from 04:00
to 05:00. The local time on the SAU is two hours later than the local time on the Nastar server.
In this case, the SAU preprocesses and reports the data related to the E2E task to the Nastar
server after 06:00 in the local time on the Nastar server. Therefore, the Nastar completes E2E
tasks in a four-hour delay to ensure that all required data is collected to the Nastar server.
You are advised to create an E2E task one day before creating a theme analysis task.
The Nastar supports the function of searching for objects in the object navigation tree. After you
click an object in the navigation tree, you can press Ctrl+F to search for and locate an object.

9.3.2 Creating a Data Import Task


This section describes how to create a data import task. The Nastar periodically imports the
analysis data such as the performance data, VIP analysis data, and cell performance analysis
data on the Nastar server into the database to perform various theme analysis tasks.

Prerequisite
You have logged in to the Nastar client.

Context
l

A data import task is a user-defined scheduled task. You can create only one user-defined
scheduled task of the same type.

The data import task can only be executed periodically. The unit of the task execution period
can be Hour, Day, Week, or Month. The data import task of the same type can only be
created once on the Nastar. After the task is created, the Nastar automatically imports data
at the preset time.

A data import task can be performed only after the related data collection task is complete
(if the data collection task running type is period, only after the first period). Otherwise,
the integrity of the imported data may be affected.

You need to create data import tasks of different types based on the type of an analysis task.

UMTS Terminal Analysis

About This Chapter


This section describes the UMTS terminal analysis tasks, including the management of terminal
analysis tasks and the query and export of terminal analysis reports. The system analyzes the
KPIs in the call records of terminal users. This function helps operators identify the terminals
with poor performance in the UMTS network, therefore encouraging terminal manufacturers to
improve the terminals with poor performance and guide subscribers to purchase terminals with
good performance. In this case, subscribers can obtain stable services, and the subscriber
satisfaction can be improved.
10.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Terminal Analysis
This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS terminal analysis. The UMTS terminal
analysis function enables the Nastar to analyze the performance of various types of terminals
and subscriber behavior from the perspective of terminals based on CHR data on the live
network.

10 UMTS Terminal Analysis

10.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Terminal Analysis


This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS terminal analysis. The UMTS terminal
analysis function enables the Nastar to analyze the performance of various types of terminals
and subscriber behavior from the perspective of terminals based on CHR data on the live
network.

Function and Usage Scenario


Call records of subscribers can reflect the access performance, service retainability, and intraRAT handover performance of terminals. KPIs related to delay, service quality, and traffic can
reflect the terminal capability.
Nastar terminal analysis provides the following functions:
l

Terminal inventory analysis: The Nastar displays the distribution of terminals on the live
network by different dimensions such as vendor or terminal model.

Terminal analysis: The Nastar aggregates cell-level and service-level KPIs. Based on
aggregation results of cell-level KPIs, you can analyze the actual status of each cell and
queried results to determine whether the poor terminal performance is caused by a terminal
defect or is affected by special cells (for example, UMTS cells near a GSM network). Based
on aggregation results of service-level KPIs, you can analyze each service and queried
results to identify the service that is not properly supported by terminals on the live network.

The preceding functions help you identify problems caused by terminals, learn about the
performance of various types of terminals, analyze inventory information of various types of
terminals on the live network, and identify and analyze UMTS traffic problems related to dualmode terminals.

Basic Concept: IMEI


International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) uniquely identifies an MS.
An IMEI consists of 15 digits ranging from 0 to 9 and is composed of the following four parts:
l

Type approval code (TAC): consists of six digits and is used to identify an MS type.

Final assembly code (FAC): consists of two digits and is used to identify a vendor.

Serial Number (SNR): consists of six digits and is used to uniquely identify an MS when
the TAC and FAC of two MSs are the same.

SP: a spare bit, which consists of only one digit and is reserved for use.

In an IMEI, the first eight digits that are composed of TAC and FAC uniquely identify an MS
type, and the later digits from 9 to 15 uniquely identify an MS of a certain type.
The Nastar analyzes only MSs of a certain type identified by the first eight digits that are
composed of TAC and FAC. In the Nastar window, IMEI-TAC refers to these eight digits.

10.4 Obtaining UMTS Terminal Analysis Data


This section describes how to enable the Nastar to obtain UMTS terminal analysis data. You
can create an E2E task to enable the Nastar to collect analysis data and create a data import task
so that the Nastar imports the collected analysis data into the database.

10.4.1 Creating UMTS E2E Tasks


This section describes how to create a E2E task. After you create an E2E task, the Nastar issues
rule files to the M2000 and then the M2000 sends rule files to the related SAU. The SAU performs
the raw data pre-processing tasks through the rule files, and then generate the pre-processed data.
The Nastar create the data collection task automatically to collect the pre-processed data from
the SAU to the Nastar.

Prerequisite
l

You have logged in to the Nastar client.

The OSS and NEs related to the analysis task are created. For details, see Creating OSSs
and the Managed NEs.

Configuration data is imported into the Nastar database. For details, see Importing
Configuration Data.

The data source is subscribed and the status is Open.

You are advised to observe the E2E task for five minutes to check whether the task is
executed normally after you create the E2E task by performing the following steps. If
Status of the E2E task is still Running after five minutes, it indicates that the E2E task is
executed normally. If Status of the E2E task is Complete or Failed after five minutes, it
indicates that the E2E task fails to be executed. Note that the Nastar monitors the tasks by
checking the task status on the M2000 at an interval of five minutes.

If the Nastar manages a network involved in different time zones, and if the local time in
the area where the Nastar server is deployed is earlier than the local time in the area where
the SAU is deployed, E2E tasks running on the Nastar will be complete in a four-hour delay.
This ensures that all required data is imported.

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Maintenance > E2E Task Management. The E2E Task Management window is
displayed.
Step 2 Click New Task. The New Task dialog box is displayed.
TIP

You can also double-click the E2E task in the navigation tree in the E2E Task Management window, or
right-click the E2E task and click New Task, the New Task dialog box is displayed.

Step 3 Set the basic task information.


1.

In the Task Name field, enter the name of the analysis data E2E task.

2.

In the E2E Task Management > E2E Task List, choose *** Analysis Data Task.
NOTE

If you select the UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Data Task, you need to set OSS Name to select the
OSS to be analyzed.

Step 4 Click Next.


Step 5 Set Begin Time and End Time, and select one or multiple NEs from the NE list.

CAUTION
You must consider the time zone difference between the Nastar and the SAU when setting the
task execution range. For example: The Nastar delivers an E2E task to be executed from 04:00
to 05:00. The local time on the SAU is two hours later than the local time on the Nastar server.
In this case, the SAU preprocesses and reports the data related to the E2E task to the Nastar
server after 06:00 in the local time on the Nastar server. Therefore, the Nastar completes E2E
tasks in a four-hour delay to ensure that all required data is collected to the Nastar server.
You are advised to create an E2E task one day before creating a theme analysis task.
The Nastar supports the function of searching for objects in the object navigation tree. After you
click an object in the navigation tree, you can press Ctrl+F to search for and locate an object.
Step 6 Optional: Set the specified parameters of the E2E task. Only some tasks need to perform the
step.

Context
l

A data import task is a user-defined scheduled task. You can create only one user-defined
scheduled task of the same type.

The data import task can only be executed periodically. The unit of the task execution period
can be Hour, Day, Week, or Month. The data import task of the same type can only be
created once on the Nastar. After the task is created, the Nastar automatically imports data
at the preset time.

A data import task can be performed only after the related data collection task is complete
(if the data collection task running type is period, only after the first period). Otherwise,
the integrity of the imported data may be affected.

You need to create data import tasks of different types based on the type of an analysis task.

live network, select Manufacturer in Analysis Dimension.

2.

In TopN, set the number of records to be displayed. Press Enter.


If you want to query the distribution proportions of terminals of top 10 vendors with the
most occupancy, set TopN to 10. After the setting, the pie chart is divided into 11 parts,
including the distribution proportions of terminals of top 10 vendors and the distribution
proportion of terminals of all other vendors.

3.

Query statistical results in the pie chart.


Legends are displayed on the right of the pie chart. If a property is not defined for a certain
type of terminals in the Terminal Type Management window and if this property is
selected as an analysis item, this property is identified by Unknown+Number+(IMEITAC).

4.

Query statistical results in the table.


Information in the table is consistent with that in the pie chart. You can query the number
of terminals of a certain type and the proportion of these terminals on the live network by
an analysis item.
You can right-click statistical results and choose Save As from the shortcut menu to export
statistical results as a .csv, .xls, or .xlsx file.

Step 6 Click the Terminal Performance Analysis tab to analyze terminal performance.
1.

Select terminal performance KPIs to be analyzed from the navigation tree on the left. The
KPIs are classified by terminal properties, terminal capability, and others.

(1) The call is released by the RNC. If the RNC detects that a UE
fails to send data for a long time or if the RNC experiences an
exception (for example, SRB reset or exception on an AAL2 link
over the Iu interface), the RNC sends an RAB RELEASE
REQUEST message to request the CN to release the RAB or sends
an IU RELEASE REQUEST message to request the CN to release
the IU connection. Call releases initiated by the RNC with any of
the following cause values are considered as a normal release: User
Inactivity, Normal Release, Successful Relocation, Network
Optimization, UE Generated Signaling Connection Release. Call
releases initiated by the RNC with other cause values are
considered as abnormal release.
(2) The call is released by the CN. The CN sends an RAB
ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message to request the RNC to
release the RAB or sends an IU RELEASE COMMAND message
to request the RNC to release the IU connection. All call releases
initiated by the CN are considered as normal release.
(3) The call is released by a UE using a SIGNALING
CONNECTION RELEASE INDICATION message. Based on
domain information carried in the message, the RNC sends an IU
RELEASE REQUEST message to a related SGSN or MSC of the
CN to initiate IU connection release in the domain.After the IU
connection in the domain is released, the RNC initiates RRC
release for the UE if no IU connection in another domain is
available.Call release in this situation are considered as normal

11.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS VIP Analysis


This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS VIP analysis, including UMTS VIP
analysis function and authority policies for UMTS VIP analysis.

11.1.1 UMTS VIP Analysis Function


The UMTS VIP analysis function enables you to routinely monitor the calls of the selected VIP
subscribers on a UMTS network. The reports based on the routine monitoring help you know
the service quality experienced by VIP subscribers. This helps network optimization engineers
identify and solve potential network problems in advance, improving VIP subscriber
satisfaction.

VIP Analysis
The Nastar obtains the information about IMSIs reported by UEs during calls and finally helps
to solve the problems related to the subscriber-level network optimization through the
aggregation and analysis of KPIs (including network-level KPIs, service-level KPIs in CS and
PS domains, and KPIs of active cells) based on the VIP group level and VIP subscriber level.
l

Aggregation and analysis of KPIs by VIP group enable you to monitor the subscribers in
important groups in a centralized, convenient, and timely manner, hence improving
operation efficiency and reducing operation expenditure. In addition, this enables you to
identify problem VIP groups and problem VIP subscribers so that you can analyze and
solve the problems in advance to avoid losing the VIP subscribers.

The aggregation and analysis of KPIs based on the VIP subscriber level provide a detailed
analysis of KPI trends related to subscriber experience and behavior. For example, analysis
of variation trends based on voice service setup delay, analysis of variation trends based
on SQI distribution of voice service quality, analysis of variation trends based on data
service average rate, analysis of variation trends based on uplink BLER distribution of data
services, and analysis of variation trends based on service duration. In this manner, you can
quickly identify the VIPs with the worst and best service quality during a certain period
and learn about the time when network problems occur.

The Nastar also provides an in-depth analysis for the VIP subscribers whose raw data is collected
in advance. If the KPIs of some VIP subscribers in a group deteriorate but the problem cannot
be located on site, the Nastar helps network optimization engineers retrieve the detailed call
reports of these VIP subscribers within a specified period. By analyzing these reports, the
network engineers quickly locate the key call report that results in the deterioration of KPI values,
and then analyzes the information such as the network quality and signaling procedure before
link release and exception causes to locate problems.
Aggregation and analysis of KPIs of active cells by VIP group and VIP subscriber help network
optimization engineers learn about the main active areas of VIP subscribers on the network. If
there are any network problems in these active areas, the network optimization engineers can
quickly identify the key cells that need to be preferentially handled to solve these network
problems and solve the problem of the service quality deterioration caused by these network
problems in time.

Limitations
l

Issue 01 (2011-08-15)

The UMTS VIP analysis function allows NEs to report raw call data of important VIP
subscribers to the Nastar. The amount of raw data is huge. Therefore, limitations are
Huawei Proprietary and Confidential

Nastar
Network Optimization User Guide (UMTS)

11 UMTS VIP Analysis

required to prevent the system from becoming overloaded in the case of concurrent
operations by a large number of users. In the case of analysis by VIP group, the Nastar can
analyze data of 30,000 VIP subscribers (that is, the number of VIP subscribers in all VIP
groups that are selected for the analysis cannot exceed 30,000). In the case of analysis by
VIP subscriber, the Nastar can analyze data of 2,000 VIP subscribers (that is, the number
of VIP subscribers in all the VIP groups that are allowed to report raw data cannot exceed
2,000).
l

If further analysis for VIP subscribers fails, the number of call records under an RNC may
be too excessive. Therefore, you are advised to set the period for executing a task to hour
(s) and the number of subscribers whose call records are reported to 100 or below during
VIP analysis.

The Nastar can combine the call records upon inter-RNC handovers. That is, if inter-RNC
handovers occur during a call, the Nastar combines the call records for the same call.
However, if two inter-RNC handovers occur within 30s and the Nastar fails to obtain the
data of one RNC, the Nastar will combine the CHR records of the two calls into one.

11.1.2 Authority Policies for UMTS VIP Analysis


The Nastar provides secure authority management policies to ensure the security of private
information for subscribers. The authority management policies enable different types of users
to have different operation rights for the security of their private information.

Introduction to Authority Types


l

View rights allow users to view a security object on the Nastar client. If a user can view a
security object on the Nastar client, the user has the view rights to this security object. Here,
security objects refer to VIP groups for VIP analysis tasks.
View rights are associated with the management domain. If a security object is added to
the management domain of a user or a user group, the user or users in the group have the
view rights to this security object.
For details about how to enable view rights for users, see the description in "Management
domain of user" in Creating an Nastar User Account.

Operation rights allow users to perform an operation. If a user has operation rights, the user
can perform a specific operation. Here, operation rights include query rights to VIP analysis
tasks, operation rights to VIP analysis tasks, management rights to VIP groups, and rights
to create, modify, and delete subnets.
Operation rights are associated with the management domain. A user can perform the
operation corresponding to the operation rights for only the objects in the management
domain of the user.
Query rights to VIP analysis tasks: If a Nastar user has the rights, the user can query
the authorized VIP analysis tasks.
Operation rights to VIP analysis tasks: If a Nastar user has the rights, the user can create,
modify, query, or delete the authorized VIP analysis tasks.
Management rights to VIP groups: If a Nastar user has the rights, the user can create,
modify, query, or delete the authorized VIP groups.
If a Nastar user not in the administrator group has the rights create, modify, and delete
subnets, the Nastar adds the VIP groups created by this user to the management domain.
These VIP groups are visible to other users not in the administrator group.
For details about how to enable operation rights for users, see the description in "Operation
rights of user" in Creating an Nastar User Account.

create an E2E task to enable the Nastar to collect analysis data and create a data import task to
enable the Nastar to import the collected analysis data into the database.

11.4.1 Creating UMTS E2E Tasks


This section describes how to create a E2E task. After you create an E2E task, the Nastar issues
rule files to the M2000 and then the M2000 sends rule files to the related SAU. The SAU performs
the raw data pre-processing tasks through the rule files, and then generate the pre-processed data.
The Nastar create the data collection task automatically to collect the pre-processed data from
the SAU to the Nastar.

Prerequisite
l

You have logged in to the Nastar client.

The OSS and NEs related to the analysis task are created. For details, see Creating OSSs
and the Managed NEs.

Configuration data is imported into the Nastar database. For details, see Importing
Configuration Data.

The data source is subscribed and the status is Open.

You are advised to observe the E2E task for five minutes to check whether the task is
executed normally after you create the E2E task by performing the following steps. If
Status of the E2E task is still Running after five minutes, it indicates that the E2E task is
executed normally. If Status of the E2E task is Complete or Failed after five minutes, it
indicates that the E2E task fails to be executed. Note that the Nastar monitors the tasks by
checking the task status on the M2000 at an interval of five minutes.

If the Nastar manages a network involved in different time zones, and if the local time in
the area where the Nastar server is deployed is earlier than the local time in the area where
the SAU is deployed, E2E tasks running on the Nastar will be complete in a four-hour delay.
This ensures that all required data is imported.

Context

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Maintenance > E2E Task Management. The E2E Task Management window is
displayed.
Step 2 Click New Task. The New Task dialog box is displayed.
TIP

You can also double-click the E2E task in the navigation tree in the E2E Task Management window, or
right-click the E2E task and click New Task, the New Task dialog box is displayed.

Step 3 Set the basic task information.


1.

In the Task Name field, enter the name of the analysis data E2E task.

2.

In the E2E Task Management > E2E Task List, choose *** Analysis Data Task.
NOTE

If you select the UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Data Task, you need to set OSS Name to select the
OSS to be analyzed.

Step 4 Click Next.


Step 5 Set Begin Time and End Time, and select one or multiple NEs from the NE list.

CAUTION
You must consider the time zone difference between the Nastar and the SAU when setting the
task execution range. For example: The Nastar delivers an E2E task to be executed from 04:00
to 05:00. The local time on the SAU is two hours later than the local time on the Nastar server.
In this case, the SAU preprocesses and reports the data related to the E2E task to the Nastar
server after 06:00 in the local time on the Nastar server. Therefore, the Nastar completes E2E
tasks in a four-hour delay to ensure that all required data is collected to the Nastar server.
You are advised to create an E2E task one day before creating a theme analysis task.

11.4.2 Creating a Data Import Task


This section describes how to create a data import task. The Nastar periodically imports the
analysis data such as the performance data, VIP analysis data, and cell performance analysis
data on the Nastar server into the database to perform various theme analysis tasks.

Prerequisite
You have logged in to the Nastar client.

Context
l

A data import task is a user-defined scheduled task. You can create only one user-defined
scheduled task of the same type.

The data import task can only be executed periodically. The unit of the task execution period
can be Hour, Day, Week, or Month. The data import task of the same type can only be
created once on the Nastar. After the task is created, the Nastar automatically imports data
at the preset time.

A data import task can be performed only after the related data collection task is complete
(if the data collection task running type is period, only after the first period). Otherwise,
the integrity of the imported data may be affected.

You need to create data import tasks of different types based on the type of an analysis task.
Table 11-4 shows the mapping between analysis task types and types of data import tasks.

UMTS Complaint Analysis Support

About This Chapter


The UMTS complaint analysis support function enables you to create UMTS complaint analysis
support tasks, query UMTS complaint analysis support results, and export UMTS complaint
analysis support reports from the Nastar. After receiving a complaint, the Nastar can quickly
locate call history records (CHRs) that are related to a problem cell involved in the complaint
based on the known problem cell and International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) of the
complaint subscriber. By analyzing causes of access failure, handover failure, and abnormal call
drop, the Nastar helps you locate and solve problems. This function improves the efficiency of
complaint handling and increases the subscriber satisfaction.
12.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Complaint Analysis Support
This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS complaint analysis support, including
UMTS complaint analysis support function and authority policies for UMTS complaint analysis
support.
12.2 UMTS Complaint Analysis Support Process
This section describes the UMTS complaint analysis support process.
12.3 Creating UMTS Complaint Analysis Support Tasks
This section describes how to create UMTS complaint analysis support tasks. After receiving a
UMTS subscriber complaint, you can create a UMTS complaint analysis support task on the
Nastar to search for the subscriber call records related to the complaints based on the problem
cell and international mobile subscriber identity (IMSI) of the complaint subscriber. This
function helps you analyze and locate problems.
12.4 Querying UMTS Complaint Analysis Support Results
This section describes how to query UMTS complaint analysis support results. You can view
subscriber call records and detailed information about each record by using this function. The
Nastar provides UE capability, access and release information, and service quality in each call
record to help you determine the network location where problems occur and possible causes.
12.5 Exporting UMTS Complaint Analysis Support Reports
This section describes how to export UMTS complaint analysis support reports. You can export
the queried complaint analysis support results as .xls, or .xlsx files as required. The exported
analysis results help you determine the network location where the problem occurs and the
possible causes.

This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS complaint analysis support, including
UMTS complaint analysis support function and authority policies for UMTS complaint analysis
support.

12.1.1 UMTS Complaint Analysis Support Function


This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS complaint analysis support. The Nastar
can perform UMTS complaint analysis support based on the call records before and after some
complaints in the UMTS network. This function helps you locate and solve complaint problems,
improves the efficiency of solving problems, and improves subscriber satisfaction.

Complaint Analysis Support


The Nastar obtains the call event records of complaint subscribers, and then filters, aggregates,
and analyzes data based on a specified history period and detailed call records of subscribers in
a specified area, assisting in locating and solving problems. The complaint analysis support
consists of the aggregation and analysis of cause types in call reports of complaint subscribers,
aggregation and analysis of information about call reports of complaint subscribers, analysis of
detailed information about call reports of complaint subscribers, analysis of procedure before
signaling release in call reports of complaint subscribers, and analysis of active cells in call
reports of complaint subscribers.
l

The aggregation and analysis of cause types in call reports of complaint subscribers help
network engineers filter and aggregate call reports based on exception causes.
Causes are classified into three types: non-exception, setup failure, and abnormal call
release. For details about cause types, see Table 12-1.
Table 12-1 Cause type and related description

Issue 01 (2011-08-15)

Cause Type

Description

Non-exception

Indicates that the call is normally released.

Setup failure

Indicates the call reports in which the RRC


access, CS service access, or PS service access
fails.

Abnormal release

Indicates the call reports in which the CS call


drops, PS call drops, or abnormal RRC release
are recorded.

The aggregation and analysis of call information of complaint subscribers provide the
overview of information about all the filtered call reports. The information includes the
access time, access cell, release time, release cell, IMSI, IMEI, service duration, link setup
type, and call status. This function helps network engineers quickly identify abnormal call
reports (for example, too-short-time call reports) and preliminarily learn about the situation
of complaint subscribers.

12 UMTS Complaint Analysis Support

The analysis of detailed call reports of complaint subscribers provides the detailed
information about all the filtered call reports. The information includes the subscriber
information, access/release information, CS service information, PS service information,
handover information and statistical information. This function helps network engineers
learn the key events that occur during calls, service usage, and MRs before the signaling
release, accurately and quickly assisting in problem location.

The analysis of procedure before signaling release in call reports of complaint subscribers
provides the detailed procedure before signaling release of all the filtered subscribers. This
function helps network engineers locate problems based on the information before signaling
release.

The UMTS complaint analysis support function requires raw call data from complaint
subscribers. The amount of raw data is huge. Therefore, a limitation must be imposed to
prevent system overload in the case of concurrent operations by a large number of users.
If IMSI is used to identify complaint subscribers, the maximum number of concurrent
complaint subscribers allowed by the Nastar cannot exceed 2,000, and the selected
complaint subscribers can be under different OSSs.

Some subscribers' call records are missing during complaint analysis. The possible cause
is that the number of call records under an RNC has exceeded 100,000. To ensure data
processing performance, the Nastar is designed to process 100,000 call records at most.
Therefore, it is recommended that a complaint analysis task should contain less than 100
subscribers' call records within three days.

The Nastar can combine the call records upon inter-RNC handovers. That is, if inter-RNC
handovers occur during a call, the Nastar combines the call records for the same call.
However, if two inter-RNC handovers occur within 30s and the Nastar fails to obtain the
data of one RNC, the Nastar will combine the CHR records of the two calls into one.

Limitations

12.1.2 Authority Policies for UMTS Complaint Analysis Support


The Nastar provides secure authority management policies to ensure the security of private
information for subscribers. The authority management policies enable different types of users
to have different operation rights for the security of their private information.

UMTS Cell Performance Analysis

About This Chapter


The UMTS cell performance analysis function enables you to obtain UMTS cell performance
analysis data, create UMTS cell performance analysis tasks, query UMTS cell performance
analysis results, and export UMTS cell performance analysis reports from the Nastar. You can
learn the actual causes of abnormal calls in problem cells by querying abnormal call data. This
function helps to improve the service quality and subscriber satisfaction.
13.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Cell Performance Analysis
This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS cell performance analysis, which helps to
quickly identify problem cells and enables the Nastar to obtain the data of abnormal calls of
problem cells. By analyzing and displaying the data of abnormal calls, the Nastar assists in
identifying the causes of problem cells and facilitating in-depth problem analysis.

13.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Cell Performance Analysis


This section describes the basic knowledge of UMTS cell performance analysis, which helps to
quickly identify problem cells and enables the Nastar to obtain the data of abnormal calls of
problem cells. By analyzing and displaying the data of abnormal calls, the Nastar assists in
identifying the causes of problem cells and facilitating in-depth problem analysis.

Cell Performance Analysis


Generally, the whole-to-partial analysis method is used during network optimization or
performance analysis. That is, the Nastar locates and analyzes network problems by monitoring
performance KPIs, and then analyzes the KPIs of the entire network or a specific BSC. Then,
the Nastar analyzes cells of a faulty BSC to identify the bottom problem cells. After that, the
Nastar performs in-depth analysis on the bottom problem cells.
At present, the Nastar can perform cell-level analysis for performance data. The Nastar can
provide detailed and in-depth analysis on problem cells.
The functions provided by the Nastar are as follows:
l

The Nastar analyzes exceptional call records based on the RNC or NE groups and provides
bottom causes of exceptional cells. This helps network engineers to identify the detailed
causes of the exception, thus improving work efficiency.

After the main exceptions of problem cells are identified, the Nastar provides users with
an in-depth understanding of bottom users with poor KPIs by providing the function of
analyzing bottom problem users in cells. This function helps network engineers to locate
bottom users of an exception type in problem cells. In this manner, network engineers can
solve the problems of bottom users, hence improving cell performance.

If problem cells are not identified, the Nastar performs exception analysis of a large number
of cells under the BSC, which helps to quickly identify the bottom problem cells.

The results of cell performance analysis can be exported as .csv, .xls or .xlsx files. In this manner,
users can optimize problem cells on the network according to the exported analysis results.

Exception Types
The cell performance exceptions are analyzed from two aspects, namely, objective network
exception and subjective subscriber experience exception. For details, see Table 13-1.

13.3 Obtaining UMTS Cell Performance Analysis Data


This section describes how to enable the Nastar to obtain UMTS cell performance analysis data.
You can create an E2E task to enable the Nastar to collect analysis data and create a data import
task to enable the Nastar to import the collected analysis data into the database.

13.3.1 Creating UMTS E2E Tasks


This section describes how to create a E2E task. After you create an E2E task, the Nastar issues
rule files to the M2000 and then the M2000 sends rule files to the related SAU. The SAU performs
the raw data pre-processing tasks through the rule files, and then generate the pre-processed data.
The Nastar create the data collection task automatically to collect the pre-processed data from
the SAU to the Nastar.

Prerequisite
l

You have logged in to the Nastar client.

The OSS and NEs related to the analysis task are created. For details, see Creating OSSs
and the Managed NEs.

Configuration data is imported into the Nastar database. For details, see Importing
Configuration Data.

The data source is subscribed and the status is Open.

You are advised to observe the E2E task for five minutes to check whether the task is
executed normally after you create the E2E task by performing the following steps. If
Status of the E2E task is still Running after five minutes, it indicates that the E2E task is
executed normally. If Status of the E2E task is Complete or Failed after five minutes, it
indicates that the E2E task fails to be executed. Note that the Nastar monitors the tasks by
checking the task status on the M2000 at an interval of five minutes.

If the Nastar manages a network involved in different time zones, and if the local time in
the area where the Nastar server is deployed is earlier than the local time in the area where
the SAU is deployed, E2E tasks running on the Nastar will be complete in a four-hour delay.
This ensures that all required data is imported.

Context

Procedure
Step 1 Choose Maintenance > E2E Task Management. The E2E Task Management window is
displayed.
Step 2 Click New Task. The New Task dialog box is displayed.
TIP

You can also double-click the E2E task in the navigation tree in the E2E Task Management window, or
right-click the E2E task and click New Task, the New Task dialog box is displayed.

Step 3 Set the basic task information.


1.

In the Task Name field, enter the name of the analysis data E2E task.

2.

In the E2E Task Management > E2E Task List, choose *** Analysis Data Task.
NOTE

If you select the UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Data Task, you need to set OSS Name to select the
OSS to be analyzed.

Step 4 Click Next.


Step 5 Set Begin Time and End Time, and select one or multiple NEs from the NE list.

CAUTION
You must consider the time zone difference between the Nastar and the SAU when setting the
task execution range. For example: The Nastar delivers an E2E task to be executed from 04:00
to 05:00. The local time on the SAU is two hours later than the local time on the Nastar server.
In this case, the SAU preprocesses and reports the data related to the E2E task to the Nastar
server after 06:00 in the local time on the Nastar server. Therefore, the Nastar completes E2E
tasks in a four-hour delay to ensure that all required data is collected to the Nastar server.
You are advised to create an E2E task one day before creating a theme analysis task.
The Nastar supports the function of searching for objects in the object navigation tree. After you
click an object in the navigation tree, you can press Ctrl+F to search for and locate an object.
Step 6 Optional: Set the specified parameters of the E2E task. Only some tasks need to perform the
step.

13.3.2 Creating a Data Import Task


This section describes how to create a data import task. The Nastar periodically imports the
analysis data such as the performance data, VIP analysis data, and cell performance analysis
data on the Nastar server into the database to perform various theme analysis tasks.

Prerequisite
You have logged in to the Nastar client.

Context
l

A data import task is a user-defined scheduled task. You can create only one user-defined
scheduled task of the same type.

The data import task can only be executed periodically. The unit of the task execution period
can be Hour, Day, Week, or Month. The data import task of the same type can only be
created once on the Nastar. After the task is created, the Nastar automatically imports data
at the preset time.

A data import task can be performed only after the related data collection task is complete
(if the data collection task running type is period, only after the first period). Otherwise,
the integrity of the imported data may be affected.

14 UMTS Service Geographic Analysis

14.1 Basic Knowledge of UMTS Service Geographic


Analysis
The UMTS service geographic analysis function enables the Nastar to locate and display required
information on a map based on measurement report (MR) data, call history record (CHR) data,
and property matrices related to mobile subscribers. This function helps operators identify
problem areas on the network, reducing drive test costs.

Description
Compared with the traditional planning software, the Nastar can display and locate data collected
from the live network on a map using the UMTS service geographic analysis function. This
function enables the Nastar to display the distribution of coverage, traffic, and abnormal events
on the live network comprehensively.
The UMTS service geographic analysis function provides the following functions:
l

Network coverage geographic analysis supports the geographic rendering for the following
indicators: Ec/No, RSCP, SHO Rate, LAC, and Primary Serving Cell.
Compared with the traditional simulation, the network coverage geographic analysis
enables the Nastar to display the actual coverage of serving cells, helping operators identify
areas with coverage problems, such as weak coverage.

Network traffic geographic analysis supports the geographic rendering for the following
indicators: Traffic Distribution of Voice Service, Traffic of bad RxQual area, HSDPA
Throughput, and Rate Of Throughput.
The network traffic geographic analysis enables the Nastar to display the traffic distribution
of each area on a map, helping operators identify heavy-traffic areas.

Network event geographic analysis supports the geographic rendering for the following
indicators: Number of Service Call Drops, Number of Failed SHOs, and Number of Failed
HHOs.
The abnormal event geographic analysis enables the Nastar to display the location where
a call setup fails and a call drops in each area and the number of call setups and call drops
on a map, helping operators identify the areas where abnormal events occur frequently.

The UMTS service geographic analysis function provides the following functions:
l

Identifies areas with heavy traffic to help site deployment.

Evaluates network quality to help quickly identify network problems.

Limitation
The UMTS service geographic analysis function enables the Nastar to analyze and collect
statistics on MRs and abnormal calls of all subscribers on a network. A limitation is set for the
amount of data to be analyzed. This prevents system overload in the case of heavy traffic or if
the analysis is performed for a long time. For the DL580 server, the Nastar can collect statistics
on and analyze data of not more than 6,000 cells. For the DL980 server, the Nastar can collect
statistics on analyze data of not more than 10,000 cells.

14.3.2 Creating UMTS E2E Tasks


This section describes how to create a E2E task. After you create an E2E task, the Nastar issues
rule files to the M2000 and then the M2000 sends rule files to the related SAU. The SAU performs
the raw data pre-processing tasks through the rule files, and then generate the pre-processed data.
The Nastar create the data collection task automatically to collect the pre-processed data from
the SAU to the Nastar.

Prerequisite
l

You have logged in to the Nastar client.

The OSS and NEs related to the analysis task are created. For details, see Creating OSSs
and the Managed NEs.

Configuration data is imported into the Nastar database. For details, see Importing
Configuration Data.

The data source is subscribed and the status is Open.

You are advised to observe the E2E task for five minutes to check whether the task is
executed normally after you create the E2E task by performing the following steps. If
Status of the E2E task is still Running after five minutes, it indicates that the E2E task is
executed normally. If Status of the E2E task is Complete or Failed after five minutes, it
indicates that the E2E task fails to be executed. Note that the Nastar monitors the tasks by
checking the task status on the M2000 at an interval of five minutes.

If the Nastar manages a network involved in different time zones, and if the local time in
the area where the Nastar server is deployed is earlier than the local time in the area where
the SAU is deployed, E2E tasks running on the Nastar will be complete in a four-hour delay.
This ensures that all required data is imported.

NOTE

If you select the UMTS Uplink Interference Analysis Data Task, you need to set OSS Name to select the
OSS to be analyzed.

Step 4 Click Next.


Step 5 Set Begin Time and End Time, and select one or multiple NEs from the NE list.

CAUTION
You must consider the time zone difference between the Nastar and the SAU when setting the
task execution range. For example: The Nastar delivers an E2E task to be executed from 04:00
to 05:00. The local time on the SAU is two hours later than the local time on the Nastar server.
In this case, the SAU preprocesses and reports the data related to the E2E task to the Nastar
server after 06:00 in the local time on the Nastar server. Therefore, the Nastar completes E2E
tasks in a four-hour delay to ensure that all required data is collected to the Nastar server.
You are advised to create an E2E task one day before creating a theme analysis task.
The Nastar supports the function of searching for objects in the object navigation tree. After you
click an object in the navigation tree, you can press Ctrl+F to search for and locate an object.

14.3.3 Creating a Data Import Task


This section describes how to create a data import task. The Nastar periodically imports the
analysis data such as the performance data, VIP analysis data, and cell performance analysis
data on the Nastar server into the database to perform various theme analysis tasks.

Prerequisite
You have logged in to the Nastar client.

Context
l

A data import task is a user-defined scheduled task. You can create only one user-defined
scheduled task of the same type.

The data import task can only be executed periodically. The unit of the task execution period
can be Hour, Day, Week, or Month. The data import task of the same type can only be
created once on the Nastar. After the task is created, the Nastar automatically imports data
at the preset time.

A data import task can be performed only after the related data collection task is complete
(if the data collection task running type is period, only after the first period). Otherwise,
the integrity of the imported data may be affected.

You need to create data import tasks of different types based on the type of an analysis task.
Table 14-2 shows the mapping between analysis task types and types of data import tasks.
