Chapter 1. Introduction

1.

Introduction

Thank you for choosing TEMS Investigation the industry-leading tool for
troubleshooting, verification, optimization, and maintenance of wireless
networks. Offering data collection, real-time analysis, and post-processing all
in one, TEMS Investigation is a complete solution for all of a network
operators daily network optimization tasks. This complete solution eliminates
the need for multiple tools, reducing costs and saving time and effort for
operations staff.

1.1.

What Is the Getting Started Manual?

The Getting Started Manual deals with preliminaries that you must work
through before you can start using TEMS Investigation, such as configuring
your computer and external devices. The manual also covers the installation
of TEMS Investigation itself.
Most of the procedures described here only have to be performed once, or
when you are exchanging pieces of hardware.
The other manuals delivered with the product (Users Manual, Information
Elements and Events, Technical Reference) concentrate on how to operate
the TEMS Investigation software once you have it installed and all your
hardware is ready for use. These manuals are what you will probably be
referring to most of the time once you have gotten started.

Importing map files

These procedures, however, are not covered here but in the Users Manual,
since they are handled from within the TEMS Investigation software
application. Chapter 18 gives the appropriate references.
Equipment Cases
The TEMS equipment cases, designed to accommodate phones and other
equipment during drive tests, are not covered here but have their own
manuals. These, however, sometimes refer to TEMS Investigation
documentation.
Installation of drivers for TEMS equipment cases is explained in section 7.6.
TEMS Pocket
Certain phones that are connectable in TEMS Investigation have TEMS
Pocket functionality. For these phones, a separate Users Manual deals with
the TEMS Pocket functions. However, when the phone is activated in TEMS
Investigation, the Pocket functions are disabled. Nonetheless, it is possible to
purchase such phones with fully enabled TEMS Pocket software; see
section 3.4.
Release Note
Some technical issues not addressed in this manual are dealt with in the file

Definitions

This section explains a number of central concepts in TEMS Investigation


which are frequently referred to in this manual.
Phone
The term phone covers user terminals from all supported technologies.
When a subset is meant, a suitable qualifier is prefixed, and/or a more
precise term is used (GSM phone, Sony Ericsson GSM phone, LG UE,
Samsung LTE modem, Sierra Wireless CDMA data card, etc.).
Some user terminals supported by TEMS Investigation are in fact data cards,
USB modems, etc. rather than phones. The word terminal is therefore
sometimes used instead of phone, without any difference in meaning from
the point of view of TEMS Investigation.
Scanner
The term scanner denotes a device dedicated to scanning, for example a
PCTel scanner. Phones with scanning capabilities are not referred to as
scanners.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

Data Services
This term refers to services requiring a data connection (either circuitswitched or packet-switched), as opposed to voice calls.

Read This Before You Start


Drive Testing

This chapter sums up some especially important prerequisites and necessary


preparations for drive testing with TEMS Investigation.

Make sure that all external devices have adequate power supply.

Make sure that appropriate drivers are installed for all external
devices.

Further information: See section 5.1.1, Note.

Further information: See chapter 7.

When doing data collection in LTE networks or in other scenarios


that entail a high CPU load, it is critically important for performance
reasons to disable non-vital PC functions that consume a lot of
processing power, especially visual effects.

Further information: See section 8.2 and particularly sections 8.2.14.4,


8.2.15.4, 8.2.16.2 regarding visual effects.

Product Packaging

TEMS Investigation 14.1 is offered in the following types of package:

Base Software Packages

Replay Packages

For Base Software Packages, support for an arbitrary subset of the supported
cellular technologies can be purchased. The only dependency is that
WCDMA always comes with GSM support included.
For packages that include GSM but not WCDMA, the following holds: Any
GSM data collected with equipment that is supported by the product can be
analyzed. This means that TEMS Investigation logfiles recorded with
WCDMA-capable devices can be loaded in the application, and any GSM
data contained in such files can be studied.
Replay Packages always have support for all technologies.

3.1.

Base Software Packages

The following contents are part of all Base Software Packages:


TEMS Investigation 14.1

CD with TEMS Investigation PC software, including user documentation


in electronic format (*.chm, *.pdf)

CD with PC device drivers

USB hub, 4-port

USB hardware key (HASP HL) or electronic software key (HASP SL)
holding the TEMS Investigation license

Chapter 3. Product Packaging

Base Software Packages encompass all TEMS Investigation functionality,


including data collection and realtime presentation. However, they do not in
themselves include any licenses for connecting particular external devices; all
of these devices require a separate license option as detailed in
section 3.3.1. Further license options are offered for collecting data with
multiple phones concurrently as well as for AQM; again, see section 3.3.1.
Within the technologies selected in the package, the Base Software Package
license permits loading of logfiles recorded with any equipment that is
supported by the product, as well as logfiles from a number of other sources;
see the Users Manual, section 11.3. No device-specific license options are
ever required for this.

3.2.

Replay Packages

These packages give access only to a small part of the TEMS Investigation
functionality: a Replay Package license allows loading of TEMS Investigation
logfiles. It is not possible to do data collection or present data in real time, nor
is it possible to load logfiles from sources other than TEMS Investigation.
These contents are included in all Replay Packages:

CD with TEMS Investigation PC software, including user documentation


in electronic format (*.chm, *.pdf)

USB hardware key (HASP HL) or electronic software key (HASP SL)
holding the TEMS Investigation license

Licensing

This chapter describes the fundamentals of the licensing in TEMS


Investigation 14.1.
Regarding the permissions granted by the basic TEMS Investigation licenses,
see sections 3.1 and 3.2. Regarding the range of additional license options,
see section 3.3.
The installation of licensing-related drivers, as well as all procedures involved
in software-based licensing, are covered in chapter 6.

4.1.

Licensing Solutions

Licensing for TEMS Investigation is based on the HASP technology. Both


hardware-based (HASP HL) and software-based (HASP SL) licensing can be
used. See sections 6.1 and 6.2 respectively.
Further, licenses associated with TEMS Investigation can be either local or
network licenses. The technical implementation of each license type naturally
differs between HASP HL and HASP SL:

A local license is embodied

(HASP HL) in a hardware key which is inserted into the PC, or

(HASP SL) in a software key that is installed on it.

A network license is obtained on the client machine1

4.2.

(HASP SL) by connecting to a license server and checking out a


software key from that server.

Local vs. Network Licenses

If HASP SL is used, either a local license or a network license can be


used for all TEMS Investigation functions.

1. HASP HL is not used in network license configurations.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

11

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

For HASP HL only local licenses exist, as stated in section 4.1.

4.3.

License Requirements

A license is always required to run TEMS Investigation. Without a license you


cannot launch the application.
Device Connect and Logfile Recording
For a device to be connectable (possible to activate) in TEMS Investigation, it
must be covered by your license options. See section 3.3.1.
Logfile Load
Within the confines of the cellular technologies supported in the package, it is
possible in TEMS Investigation to load and analyze logfiles recorded with
devices for which you have no license. For example, even if you have not
purchased the license option for data collection with Qualcomm devices, you
can still load logfiles recorded with Qualcomm devices.
However, loading of logfiles recorded with software other than TEMS
Investigation (e.g. TEMS Automatic) requires a Base Software Package
license. See section 3.1.

4.4.

Drivers for HASP Key

The HASP key drivers (for HASP HL and SL alike) are installed automatically
along with TEMS Investigation. If you are going to use HASP SL network
licensing, you must install the HASP driver on the license server PC; see
section 6.2.2 for instructions.
Note: Do not use any other HASP driver than the one delivered with
TEMS Investigation. Do not update the HASP driver via Windows
Update; the driver thus obtained is not identical and does not
contain certain features necessary for using software-based
licensing with TEMS Investigation.

Inspecting the Scope of Your License

You can check what is covered by your (local or network) license in the HASP
Admin Control Center, accessed from Help Hasp Admin Control Center
Features.
The meanings of the HASP key Feature Ids are given in the table that follows.

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

5.

Installing TEMS Investigation

This chapter covers requirements on the PC, installation of the TEMS


Investigation software, and other installation issues.

5.1.

PC Hardware and Software Requirements

5.1.1.

Hardware

TEMS Investigation 14.1 is designed to run on a standard PC and interfaces


with the connected devices mainly through USB or serial ports.
If network licenses (see section 4.1) are to be used, the PC hosting the
license server must have at least one free USB port.
Processor and RAM requirements are strongly dependent on what external
devices are connected and what tasks they perform. The recommended
minimum configuration is: Pentium T7200 or AMD TL-58 class CPU,
preferably with dedicated graphics card from ATI or nVidia; 1 GB RAM.
Please note that it is not advisable to collect data with more than one device,
or to collect data in an LTE or HSPA network, using this configuration.
LTE data service testing at high throughput rates (above 50 Mbit/s) with a
Qualcomm chipset based device requires a very powerful PC processor, for
example a 2nd generation Intel Core i5 or comparable Intel Core i7.
For testing with a large array of connected devices (for example, 68 devices
plus GPS), an Intel Core i7-nnnQM/XM, Intel Core i7-2nnnQM/XM, or
equivalent processor is necessary.
Other hardware requirements:

One USB port for each user terminal

One USB port for each stand-alone AQM module

One or two USB port(s) for SRU (see the Users Manual, section 8.1.3)

USB port for PCTel SeeGull MX/EX/LX MM2/PCTel PCT scanner

USB port for Anritsu ML8780A scanner

16

Chapter 5. Installing TEMS Investigation

USB port for Transcom scanner

USB port for equipment case

USB port for HASP HL SRM hardware key

USB port, Bluetooth port, or serial port for GPS

Serial port for PCTel SeeGull LX dual-band/single-band scanner

Serial port for Anritsu ML8720 scanner

Ethernet port for Andrew scanner

Ethernet port for DRT scanner

Ethernet port for Rohde & Schwarz scanner

ExpressCard/34 slot or PC Card slot for any data card user terminals

Sound card and loudspeakers for event audio indications

Graphics: 1024 768 (SVGA) with at least 16 bit colors (High Color)

Enough disk space to accommodate temporary files created during logfile


recording and logfile analysis
Note: During drive testing, it must be ensured that the PC and all
devices connected to it have adequate power supply for the
duration of the test. This is especially important to bear in mind if
you are using a USB hub that is not self-powered (i.e. has no
external power supply). With multiple devices connected, it may
even be necessary to take the precaution of providing extra
power via UPS or extra batteries during drive testing. If the power
provided is insufficient, problems may arise with device drivers,
which in turn may cause malfunctions in Windows and possibly
data loss. Ascom takes no responsibility for such data loss.

5.1.2.

Operating System

The following operating systems are supported:

Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (x86, x64)

Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 (x86)

Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (x86)

In addition, all the latest Windows updates should always be installed.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

17

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

Supported languages are English (U.S.), Chinese (simplified characters), and


Japanese.
Be sure to use the appropriate drivers for the operating system used. See
also chapter 7.

5.1.3.

Software

Below is a list of other third-party software that is required for various tools
and actions in TEMS Investigation. When installing third-party software,
administrator rights are required, and possibly (depending on UAC settings)
the installation must be run using the Run as administrator option.

.NET Framework version 4.0 must be installed on the PC. It is included on


the TEMS Investigation installation CD.

Internet Explorer 6 or higher required for Report Generator and online


help.

Internet Explorer 9 required for HTTP download testing with Internet


Explorer: see the Users Manual, section 20.16.3.11.

Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0 required for support of XMLformat cell files if Windows XP is used. (In Windows 7 and Windows Vista,
MSXML 6.0 is included.)

Microsoft DirectX 9.0c required for video streaming measurements.

5.2.

Other Hardware Requirements

5.2.1.

HASP License Server

Supported operating systems are: Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP,


Windows 2000; Windows 2008 Server, Windows 2003 Server (32-bit versions
throughout).
Hardware requirements do not need to be stated since running the HASP
License Manager is not a CPU-intensive task.

5.2.2.

Audio Quality Measurements

For CS voice audio quality measurements, one of the following additional


hardware components is needed. Compare the Users Manual, chapter 35:

18

Chapter 5. Installing TEMS Investigation

AQM module(s) and either Call Generator (see chapter 9 of this


document) or Mobile Receiving Unit, MRU

Audio Capturing Unit, ACU.

5.2.3.

VoIP Testing

VoIP testing requires two PCs, each running an instance of TEMS


Investigation. See the Users Manual, section 20.16.7.9, and the technical
paper VoIP Testing with TEMS Investigation, found on the installation CD in
the subdirectory Documents.1

5.2.4.

Video Streaming

For video streaming measurements a streaming server is needed: Darwin


Streaming Server (version 5.5.5) or Helix Mobile Server (version 10 or 11).

5.2.5.

UDP Testing with TEMS UDP Server

UDP testing makes use of the TEMS UDP Server application, which is
installed on the PC acting as server. Requirements on the PC where TEMS
UDP Server is going to be run are stated in the document TEMS UDP Server
Users Manual, found on the TEMS Investigation installation CD.
Please note that the UDP client in TEMS Investigation 14.1 requires a TEMS
UDP Server from TEMS Investigation 12.0 or later; the client is not
compatible with older TEMS UDP Servers.
Multiple TEMS UDP Servers from TEMS Investigation 12.0 or later cannot
coexist on the same machine. One such server can however coexist with one
from TEMS Investigation 11.x.

5.2.6.

Network Bandwidth (UDP/TCP) Testing with Iperf

Network Bandwidth testing uses the Iperf software. Iperf is not supplied with
TEMS Investigation but can be downloaded from sourceforge.net/projects/
iperf (version 2.0.5 or later).

1. Two TEMS Investigation licenses are thus required for VoIP testing, as
well as the VoIP license option (see section 4.5).

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

19

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

Iperf can be installed on a Linux, Unix, or Windows platform. The TEMS


Investigation functionality has been verified with Iperf installed under:

Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7

OpenSUSE 11.2

Installation for SSH2


If you wish to do Iperf testing over the secure SSH2 protocol, you must install
TEMS Investigation by executing a special MSI file named
TEMS_Investigation_13.0_SSH2.msi (instead of following the usual
procedure described in section 5.3).
To run the Network Bandwidth activity over SSH2, the PC must have a HASP
key installed with the SSH2 license option encoded.
Network-to-terminal Mapping (Linux/Unix)
Under Linux/Unix, the Network Bandwidth activity requires that the server
map the network port to terminal vt100.
Map the port by editing a line in /etc/profile:
tset -I -Q -m network:vt100
An incorrect mapping will cause the following error:
tset: unknown terminal type network
Terminal type?

5.3.

Installing TEMS Investigation

You must have administrator rights on the PC to be able to install TEMS


Investigation.

Insert the installation CD and follow the on-screen instructions.

If for some reason the installation does not start automatically, run the file
SetupTEMSInvestigation.exe.
TEMS Investigation will now be installed, by default to the directory
C:\Program Files\Ascom\TEMS Products\TEMS Investigation 14.1.
A number of utilities are also installed:

20

HASP SRM Remote Update, used to update license options in HASP


keys. See the document TEMS HASP SRM Key Information which is
found on the installation CD in the subdirectory Documents.

Chapter 5. Installing TEMS Investigation

Manual UE Configuration, used to assist TEMS Investigation in


detecting certain types of devices. See section 7.1 of this volume and
section 8.3.4 of the Users Manual.

TEMS Pocket Positioning Tool, used to assign geographical


coordinates to TEMS Pocket logfiles recorded by pinpointing (no GPS).
See the TEMS Pocket Positioning Tool Users Manual, included on the
installation CD in the subdirectory Documents.

TEMS Investigation Computer Diagnostics, used to rate the


capabilities of the PC and check its current settings, matching the findings
with the requirements posed by TEMS Investigation. This utility is
launched in the course of the installation. See chapter 8 for full coverage
of TEMS Investigation Computer Diagnostics.

Once installed, the applications and utilities can be run by choosing Start
[All] Programs Ascom TEMS Products.

5.4.

Software Updates

Note: UAC must be turned off for this feature to work.


When starting TEMS Investigation for the first time after installation, you are
invited to connect to an Ascom server and find out if there is a newer TEMS
Investigation software version available. A web page opens. If a newer
version exists, you are asked whether or not to install it. If you accept the
update, it will be downloaded, whereupon TEMS Investigation terminates
automatically and the update is installed.
The update check prompt also appears on application start-up if no update
check has been performed over the last 28 days.
Alternatively, you can manually initiate the update check from the about box
(Help menu About TEMS Investigation 14.1) by clicking the button Tech
Support and then Check for updates:

Chapter 6. Installing and Using HASP Software Protection

6.

Installing and Using HASP


Software Protection

This chapter covers in detail how HASP software protection is applied to


TEMS Investigation and how to handle it in practice.
Either hardware-based licensing (HASP HL, section 6.1) or software-based
licensing (HASP SL, section 6.2) can be used.
Regarding general aspects of licensing for TEMS Investigation, see
chapter 4.

6.1.

Hardware-based Licensing: HASP HL

The HASP SRM driver is installed automatically on the PC along with TEMS
Investigation. Only local (as opposed to network) licenses exist, and no
further configuration is required.

6.2.

Software-based Licensing: HASP SL

For HASP SL, too, there is a choice between local licenses (section 6.2.1)
and network licenses (section 6.2.2).

6.2.1.

HASP SL Local License Installation

Here is how to install a local HASP SL license on a client machine.

Install TEMS Investigation. In the process, the HASP SRM driver is


installed automatically on the PC.

Run the file hasprus.exe which is also found on the TEMS Investigation
installation CD. From this session you obtain a file with extension .c2v.

Using HASP SL Network Licenses

6.2.2.1.

TCP Port Usage

By default, TCP port 1947 is used between server and client. Due to firewall
restrictions or other issues, you might need to change this port. If necessary,
do as follows:

Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\
hasplms\Parameters, create a registry entry Port on both server and
client.

Type: REG_DWORD or REG_SZ. The preferred type is REG_SZ


since the default display of REG_DWORD is hexadecimal, which may
be misleading.

Value: Set the value to the desired port number.

Restart the LLM Server (Sentinel HASP License Manager) or reboot the
machine.

The port assignment can be verified with the command netstat -a.
If applicable, substitute your own TCP port number for 1947 when following
the instructions below.

6.2.2.2.

HASP SL License Server Installation

If you are going to use HASP SL network licenses, you must first configure
the machine that is going to act as license server:

Install the HASP SRM driver supplied on the TEMS Investigation


installation CD.

Run the file hasprus.exe which is also found on the TEMS Investigation
installation CD. From this session you obtain a file with extension .c2v.
See the document TEMS HASP SRM Key Information which is found on
the installation CD in the subdirectory Documents.

Send the .c2v file to TEMS support. You will receive a .v2c file in return.

Run hasprus.exe again to apply the .v2c file to the license server
machine.

Now configure the server using the Admin Control Center web page at
Help Hasp Admin Control Center.

24

Go to Configuration Detachable Licenses tab and check the


option Enable Detaching of Licenses.

Chapter 6. Installing and Using HASP Software Protection

By adjusting the parameter Max. Detach Duration, you can control


the maximum duration for which a license may be detached. After this
time, the license will be automatically disabled on the client machine
and restored to the license server. It is advisable to keep the maximum
detach duration fairly short, since if a client computer crashes the
license will be unavailable until the expiry date. The minimum value is
1 day.

Then switch to the Access from Remote Clients tab and enter
whatever is suitable under Access Restrictions. By default, a license
can be detached from any machine; if you want to restrict the set of
machines and/or users that should have access to the HASP License
Manager, proceed according to the help provided for this tab (Help
link in lower right corner).

6.2.2.3.

HASP SL Network License: Online Detach/Attach

Once the license server has been configured, it can send out licenses to
client machines. Here are the steps to perform on the client PC in order to
check out (detach) a license online from the license server, and to return
(attach) a license to the server.

Configure the client PC using the Admin Control Center web page, Help
Hasp Admin Control Center.

Go to Configuration Detachable Licenses tab and check the


option Enable Detaching of Licenses.

Then go to the Access to Remote License Managers tab. Under


Specify Search Parameters, enter the IP address or name of the
license server machine. Regarding the other settings, see the help
provided for this tab (Help link in lower right corner).

On the ACC web page, under Products, locate TEMS Investigation in the
list. Click the Detach button for that product.

Note: For practical examples of how to work with HASP SL licenses


when multiple TEMS products and product options are involved,
please turn to section 6.2.2.5.

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

Online is the default detach method when the client has a network
connection to the license server. (No action needed.)

Specify an expiration date for the detach operation. This setting controls
how long the license can be detached at a time, and it is configurable
within the limit imposed by the Max. Detach Duration setting on the
license server; compare section 6.2.2.2.

Click the Detach/Attach button.

You should now receive a message License Detached Successfully:

Furthermore, the Products page should now be updated with the information
that a license has been detached for TEMS Investigation.
The license will expire after the period specified at detach time; after this time
you will need to detach the license again. Alternatively, you can actively
return (attach) the license to the server before it expires. This is done as
follows:

HASP SL Network License: Offline Detach/Attach

License detach and attach can alternatively be done offline, without the client
and server ever communicating directly over a network connection.

Configure the client PC using the Admin Control Center web page, Help
Hasp Admin Control Center.

Go to Configuration Detachable Licenses tab and check the


option Enable Detaching of Licenses.

Then go to the Access to Remote License Managers tab. Under


Specify Search Parameters, enter the IP address or name of the
license server machine. Regarding the other settings, see the help
provided for this tab (Help link in lower right corner).

If the client PC is not yet known to the HASP license server, you need
to identify it to the server the first time around.1 On the Admin Control
Center web page, go to Diagnostics, and click the button Create ID
File. This generates a diagnostics file (with extension .id) identifying
your machine.

Send the diagnostics file to the HASP license server admin.

Here is how the server admin proceeds in order to detach a license. The
admin selects the Update/Attach option:

The admin then clicks the Detach button next to the relevant product:

1. If (for example) you have detached a license online to this client PC at


some point, the PC will already be known to the server, and the
identification step is not needed. The license server admin can then send
you an .h2r file directly.

28

Chapter 6. Installing and Using HASP Software Protection

The admin selects your client PC as recipient machine and sets an


expiration date for the license.

Finally the admin saves the detached license as a file with extension .h2r
and sends it to you.

Save the .h2r file on your client PC, then open the Admin Control Center
web page, go to Update/Attach, and browse for the .h2r file. Then click
the Apply File button. (This is the same dialog that the admin used to
process your .id file.)

again. Alternatively, you can actively return (attach) the license to the server
before it expires. This is done as follows:

30

Navigate to the Products page and click the Cancel License button for
the relevant product.

Chapter 6. Installing and Using HASP Software Protection

On the next screen, again click the Cancel License button:

A file with extension .r2h is created; save this file.

Send the .r2h file to the HASP license server admin. The server admin will
then apply the .r2h file to the server, thereby reattaching the license. (The
same Apply File procedure is used as for offline detach, which was
covered earlier in this section.)

The information of the Product page will again be updated to reflect the
reattach of the TEMS Investigation license.

6.2.2.4.1.

Disabling Offline Detach

It is possible to disable offline detach of licenses. This may be desirable in


order to decrease the risk of detaching licenses to non-existing clients. To
disable offline detach, do as follows:

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

31

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

In the file C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Aladdin


Shared\HASP\hasplm.ini, add the line disable_offline_detach = 1 (it does
not matter in which section this line is entered).

Then restart Sentinel Local License Manager.

When detaching a software-based license, the offline option should now be


disabled, and this text should be displayed: (Offline Detach is disabled by
configuration).

6.2.2.5.

Handling HASP SL Network Licenses for TEMS


Products: Examples

For simplicity the instructions given so far in section 6.2.2 have assumed that
it is immediately obvious what type of license to detach. If you have
purchased multiple TEMS products, and/or multiple TEMS product packages
with different options, things are slightly more complicated. This section
clarifies how to proceed in typical configurations of this kind.
Consider the following set of TEMS product packages (Products 13) with
different combinations of products and license options:

32

Chapter 6. Installing and Using HASP Software Protection

Each of these packages will appear as a product in ACC, as indicated in the


diagram. You always check out entire products in the ACC interface, not
individual license options. These products, however, do not necessarily
correspond in one-to-one fashion to TEMS PC applications, as can be seen
in the diagrams just given.

If you want to do LTE or CDMA drive testing or both, you check out
Product 1.

If you want to do both LTE and WiMAX testing, you need to check out
both Product 1 and Product 2; but note that you will still only be running
one TEMS Investigation application. (You cannot just check out Product 1
and then somehow add only the WiMAX option from Product 2.)

Another fact to keep in mind is that each TEMS product user always needs to
check out his or her own license.

Suppose that Product 1 has been purchased, and user A wants to use
TEMS Investigation while user B wants to use TEMS Discovery. The two
users then need one license each; it is not possible to check out just one
license and share it between users A and B.

Or suppose that Product 3 has been purchased, and user C wants to


study LTE data whereas user D wishes to work with CDMA data. Each of
these users must likewise have his or her own license.

Monitoring HASP SL License Usage

You can monitor how many licenses are currently checked out and who is
using those licenses. This is particularly useful when the number of available
licenses is running low.

Go to Help Hasp Admin Control CenterProducts.

The Products page in Admin Control Center lists all products that are
available on all accessible HASP License Managers on the network.

In the Detached column is indicated the number of licenses that are


currently detached from the HASP SL key to which the product is
locked. Click on a cell in the Detached column to view data about the
recipient machines to which the detached licenses have been
allocated.

In the Available column is indicated the number of licenses that are


currently available for detachment from the HASP SL key to which the
product is locked.

Updating HASP Keys (HL/SL)

When updating a HASP key of any type (i.e. whether HL or SL), you proceed
much in the same way as when first obtaining a HASP SL (software-based)
key. HL and SL are described separately below for maximum clarity.
For further information, see the document TEMS HASP SRM Key
Information which is found on the installation CD in the subdirectory
Documents.

6.3.1.

Updating HASP HL Keys

1. Make sure you have installed TEMS Investigation.


2. Plug your HASP HL key into the PC.
3. Navigate to the Application folder beneath the TEMS Investigation
installation directory and run the file hasprus.exe. This dialog box
opens:

34

Chapter 6. Installing and Using HASP Software Protection

4. Now collect the key information by clicking the Collect information


button.
5. If you also have a HASP SRM SL (i.e. software-based) key installed on
the machine, a dialog will appear at this point prompting you to choose
which key to update. Select the HASP HL key.

6. A file with extension .c2v is created. Choose a suitable file name and
save the file.
7. E-mail the .c2v file to customer support. Contact information is found at
www.ascom.com/networktesting under the link TEMS Support.
8. From customer support you will receive a file with extension .v2c. Once
you have that file, navigate to the TEMS Investigation folder and run the
file hasprus.exe. The Remote Update System dialog opens.
9. Select the Apply License Update tab.
10. Browse to locate the .v2c file, and click the Apply update button:

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

35

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

11. The result of the operation will be displayed in the main window of the
dialog. When you have successfully applied the HASP license, exit the
Remote Update System application.

6.3.2.

Updating HASP SL Keys

1. Make sure you have installed TEMS Investigation.


2. Navigate to the Application folder beneath the TEMS Investigation
installation directory and run the file hasprus.exe. The HASP SRM RUS
dialog opens to the Collect Key Status Information tab (as in
section 6.3.1, step 3).
3. Click the Collect information button. What this operation does in the
HASP SL case is to take a digital fingerprint of your hard drive, uniquely
identifying the drive.
4. If you also have a HASP SRM HL hardware key plugged into the PC at
this point, a dialog will appear prompting you to choose which key to
update. Select the HASP SL key.
5. Just as for HASP SRM HL, a file with extension .c2v is created. Save
this file.
6. E-mail the .c2v file to customer support. Contact information is found at
www.ascom.com/networktesting under the link TEMS Support.
7. From customer support you will receive a file with extension .v2c. Once
you have that file, navigate to the TEMS Investigation folder and run the
file hasprus.exe. The Remote Update System dialog opens.
8. Select the Apply License Update tab.
9. Browse to locate the .v2c file, and click the Apply update button.
10. The result of the operation will be displayed in the main window of the
dialog. When you have successfully applied the HASP license, exit the
Remote Update System application.

Sentinel HASP Runtime Network Activity

Note: This information is reproduced from SafeNets Sentinel HASP


documentation.
This section describes the type of network activity that occurs in the
communication between:

an application (protected using Sentinel HASP) and the local HASP


License Manager (referred to as local communications).

the local HASP License Manager and one or more remote HASP License
Managers (referred to as remote communications).

Details regarding local communications and remote communications are


provided on the pages that follow.
This section is intended to assist IT managers who want to understand how
runtime activity on the network may impact the way they set up their network
rules and policies.
Sentinel HASP communicates via TCP and UDP on socket 1947. This socket
is IANA-registered exclusively for this purpose.

6.4.1.

Local Communications

This section describes communication between a protected application and


the local HASP License Manager service.
A protected application communicates only with HASP License Manager on
the computer where the application is running, regardless of whether the
HASP HL or SL Key is located on the same computer or on a remote
computer.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

37

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

Note: Under Windows, HASP License Manager is a service that is


launched automatically by hasplms.exe. Under Mac OS and
Linux, the HASP License Manager is a process launched
automatically by hasplmd.
HASP License Manager service opens socket 1947 for listening (both for
UDP packets and TCP packets).

IPv4 sockets are always opened (HASP License Manager currently does
not work without IPv4 installed).

IPv6 sockets are opened if IPv6 is available.

A protected application tries to connect to 127.0.0.1:1947 TCP to


communicate with HASP License Manager. If an application uses multiple
sessions, multiple concurrent TCP connections may exist. If a session is
unused for a certain number of minutes (at least seven minutes, but the exact
number depends on several factors), the session may be closed and
automatically re-opened later in order to limit resources used by the
application.
These local communications currently use IPv4 only.
The communication uses binary data blocks of varying size.

6.4.2.

Remote Communications

This section describes communication between the local HASP License


Manager service and a remote HASP License Manager service.
This type of communication occurs when the protected application is running
on a different computer from the computer where the HASP HL or SL Key is
installed.
The protected application communicates only with the local HASP License
Manager on the computer where the application is running, as described in
section 6.4.1. The local HASP License Manager discovers and
communicates with the License Manager on the computer containing the
HASP Key using one of the following methods:

38

The local HASP License Manager issues a UDP broadcast to local


subnets on port 1947 using:

IPv4 (always)

IPv6 (if available)

Chapter 6. Installing and Using HASP Software Protection

You can disable this broadcast by clearing the Broadcast Search for
Remote Licenses checkbox in the Admin Control Center Configuration
screen.

The local License Manager issues a UDP ping packet to port 1947 for all
addresses specified in the Admin Control Center field Specify Search
Parameters. These addresses may be individual machine addresses or
broadcast addresses.

All License Managers found by the discovery process are then connected via
TCP port 1947, using IPv4 or IPv6 as detected during discovery, and data
regarding the remote HASP Keys are transferred.
This discovery process is repeated at certain intervals. (The interval size
depends on a number of factors, but it is generally not less than five minutes.)
UDP packets sent and received in the discovery process contain the License
Manager GUID (40 bytes of payload data).
When starting or stopping a License Manager, and when adding or removing
a HASP Key, a UDP notification packet is sent, containing the License
Manager GUID and a description of the changes encountered. This is done to
allow other License Managers to update their data before the next scheduled
discovery process.
TCP packets between two License Managers on different computers use
HTTP with base-64 encoded data in the body section.

The TC-1520C case also uses a standard driver for the Moxa hub. This driver
is not supplied with the case.

7.7.

Installation of Drivers for AQM Modules

AQM modules, whether stand-alone or mounted in an equipment case, need


to be initialized by dedicated driver files. The AQM module does not have any
non-volatile memory, so all requisite software and settings must be
downloaded to the AQM module each time it is powered on.
The first time you connect the case or backpack to the PC, you will be
prompted to locate the drivers. For detailed instructions, see the document
Driver install instructions.txt stored in the directory ...\Drivers\AQM.
Note: AQM drivers supplied with TEMS Investigation versions older
than 12.0 cannot be used with the present version of the
application.

7.7.1.

General Advice on Driver Installation for AQM


Equipment Case/Backpack

When preparing a TC-1520B/1520C/1520D equipment case for use, we


recommend that you proceed in the steps described below. The same advice
applies to a TEMS Indoor Backpack with AQM modules installed.

Before plugging the case into the PC, make sure

that you have installed TEMS Investigation (section 5.3)

that you have installed all driver files from the separate driver CD
(section 7.1)

that you have rebooted the PC.

Connect the case to the PC while the case is turned off and does not have
any phones installed.

Power on the case.

Locate all of the drivers in sections 7.6 and 7.7.

After the drivers for AQM have been activated, install one phone at a time
in the case. For each phone, you will be prompted to locate the phone
driver (see section 7.1). Wait each time until the phone driver has been
activated before you install the next phone.

Installation of Drivers for Audio Capturing


Unit (TerraTec)

Drivers for the TerraTec box are found under ...\Drivers\TerraTec. The same
drivers are used for all supported Windows versions.
The installation proceeds in two steps: first run the EXE in the Initial driver
folder, then the one under Additional driver.
Note: Do not install any of the drivers found on the CD enclosed with
the TerraTec box by the supplier. (These drivers are too old.)

TEMS Investigation Computer


Diagnostics

For TEMS Investigation to operate properly, your computer must be


appropriately configured in a variety of respects. With the product is delivered
a utility called Computer Diagnostics, which evaluates the current status of
the PC and determines how well it is prepared for running TEMS
Investigation. Specifically, the utility does the following:

Checks a variety of PC settings that have a significant impact on TEMS


Investigation performance, particularly with regard to data collection.
Feedback in plain text is given on these settings, complete with
recommendations for changes. Suitable settings are detailed in
section 8.2.

Checks hardware capabilities (processor and RAM) and matches them


against the requirements of TEMS Investigation. See section 8.1.2.2 for
further discussion.

8.1.

Running TEMS Investigation Computer


Diagnostics

Launch the Computer Diagnostics utility by choosing Start [All]


Programs Ascom TEMS Products Utilities TEMS
Investigation Computer Diagnostics.

8.1.1.

Setting Up Test Cases

The Computer Diagnostics utility has a user interface with the following
layout:

54

Chapter 8. TEMS Investigation Computer Diagnostics

You can run all listed test cases or a subset of them.

To select what items to run, check the boxes on the left as appropriate.

To select all items, right-click in the grid and choose Select All from the
context menu.

To deselect all items, right-click in the grid and choose Deselect All from
the context menu.

After deciding what test cases to run:


Click the Run Testcases button on the window toolbar.
The results of the session are presented in the user interface. See
section 8.1.2. A plain-text report with additional detail can also be generated;
how to produce this report is explained in section 8.1.3.

8.1.2.

Diagnostics Presentation in User Interface

8.1.2.1.

Windows Settings

The color coding in the Status column has the following interpretation:

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

55

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

Green: The setting is OK and does not need changing.

Orange: The setting is not OK but can be changed.

Red: The setting is not OK and is not editable.

Further details on the outcome appear on the status bar when you select a
diagnostic in the window grid. These text strings also appear in the
diagnostics report; see section 8.1.3.

8.1.2.2.

Hardware

The PC hardware is evaluated with respect to two sets of criteria:

Minimum configuration. These are the minimum requirements for doing


data collection with TEMS Investigation.

Maximum configuration. These are the requirements for maintaining:

(GSM, WCDMA Rel. 99, and CDMA/EV-DO) Up to six concurrent


voice calls or up to four concurrent data service sessions.

(HSPA, LTE) A maximum of four concurrent data service sessions.


Limitations apply according to device driver performance and the data
rates attained in the network. Note also that the NDIS driver
implementation for some devices might limit the number of data
service sessions to only one.

A set of Windows Experience Index (WEI) scores are computed as an


assessment of the hardware capabilities, and these scores are compared to
predefined thresholds to determine whether they are high enough. The
Status column uses colors as follows to indicate the result:

Green: All WEI part scores are OK.

Red: At least one WEI part score is not OK.

Further details on the outcome, as well as the WEI score thresholds that
apply, are indicated on the status bar when you select a hardware
configuration diagnostic. These text strings also appear in the diagnostics
report; see section 8.1.3.

8.1.2.3.

Further Columns in the Computer Diagnostics Window

The Impact column indicates the relative importance of the various items
tested. (The weighting shown does not form the basis for a composite score
of any kind; it is just a visual indication.)
The Read-only column is currently not used.

56

Chapter 8. TEMS Investigation Computer Diagnostics

8.1.3.

Diagnostics Report

You can obtain a plain-text summary of the diagnostics session by generating


a diagnostics report.
To produce the report, click the Generate Report button.
A window named Diagnostics Report appears. You can save the report as a
text file.

8.1.4.

Iterating the Diagnostics Procedure

After you have made adjustments to PC settings, you can run the Computer
Diagnostics utility once more to see how the status of the machine has
improved. Just click the Run Testcases button again to repeat the
diagnostics procedure.
If you install TEMS Investigation on a brand new PC, the Documents and
Screen Saver diagnostics may be evaluated differently the first time around
than on subsequent occasions (even if you do not change any PC settings).
The reason is that on the first occasion, the relevant registry keys have not
yet been initialized.

8.2.

Suitable PC Settings for TEMS Investigation

This section is a survey of the PC settings that are inspected by the TEMS
Investigation Computer Diagnostics utility. It also includes a few further items.
Further PC configuration, required for data service testing in specific
circumstances, is described in section 10.6.
General third-party software requirements are listed in section 5.1.3.
Note: Please read this section carefully, since inappropriate PC settings
may seriously impair the performance of TEMS Investigation, or
even render certain functions unusable.
If you have not purchased the data collection functionality, you can disregard
most of this section.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

8.2.1.

Administrator Rights

A number of user actions in TEMS Investigation require that the user have
administrator rights on the PC:

Running multiple concurrent data service sessions. In the course of such


testing, TEMS Investigation must be able to modify Windows routing
tables, which requires admin privileges.

Use of the IP sniffer. See the Users Manual, section 20.16.3.7 and
Information Elements and Events, section 8.8.

8.2.2.

Automatic Updating of Software

Software that uses an auto update function to receive automatic updates


from a web site over a dial-up connection should be disabled.

8.2.3.

AutoPlay

Automatic launching of a PC application following device connect must be


avoided. Therefore, make sure that for all connected devices used with
TEMS Investigation, AutoPlay is disabled.
How to disable AutoPlay is explained at support.microsoft.com/kb/967715
under the heading How to disable or enable all Autorun features in
Windows 7 and other operating systems. The value that should be used to
get a green light in the Computer Diagnostics tool is 0xFF, which means
Disables AutoRun on all kinds of drives.

8.2.4.

Intel SpeedStep

If the PC is equipped with Intels SpeedStep technology regulating the


processor speed, choose the setting Maximum Performance for all types of
operation (Plugged in, Running on batteries).

8.2.5.

IR Port

The IR port on your PC may need to be disabled, since it may interfere with
the ordinary COM ports. Please consult the user manual for your computer
regarding how to disable the IR port.

58

Chapter 8. TEMS Investigation Computer Diagnostics

8.2.6.

My Documents Folder

TEMS Investigation places certain files under My Documents (or


Documents) in a subfolder called TEMS Product Files. If your
My Documents folder is located on a network drive, be sure to make the
folder available offline before disconnecting from the network (for example,
when going drive testing).

8.2.7.

Port-scanning Software

You should not have any software installed that periodically scans COM or
USB ports, for instance Microsoft Outlook synchronization software such as
Sony Ericsson PC Suite or Nokia PC Suite. The reason is that such software
may cause difficult device connect problems in TEMS Investigation.

8.2.8.

RTP (UDP) Ports for Video Streaming

By default TEMS Investigation uses RTP (UDP) ports 50045007 for video
streaming. If you intend to accept this default setting, you must make sure
that the ports have not been reserved by some other application. You can
specify a different port usage in a Streaming activity in a script; see the Users
Manual, section 20.16.6.4.

8.2.9.

Security Products

Please note that hard disk encryption software, firewalls, virus scanners, and
other security products may prevent multiple RAS sessions from being
maintained concurrently, thus interfering with data service testing. Contact
your IS/IT department for assistance in these matters.
The realtime scanning feature of antivirus software is prone to generate
considerable CPU load. If you find the overall CPU load excessive, it may be
a good idea to try turning off the realtime scanning feature.

8.2.10.

Sleep Mode, Screen Savers, Energy Saving


Features

You should make sure that the computer used for measurement and
recording does not go into any kind of standby mode:

Never put the PC in Sleep mode.

do this, please consult the user manual for your computer.

8.2.12.

Windows Firewall

The built-in software firewall must be disabled in all Windows versions.

8.2.13.

Windows Media Player

Windows Media Player and other applications that attempt to synchronize to


removable mass storage devices (such as mobile phones) must be disabled.
They may otherwise interfere with data collection.
For Windows XP, see also section 8.2.16.3 (deletion of registry keys).

8.2.14.

Windows 7 Specific Settings

8.2.14.1. IPv6
It is recommended to disable IPv6 for the modem of each connected device.
If this is not done, the CPU load will rise appreciably, and dial-ups will take

Basic Configuration of User Terminals

Sony Ericsson W995 Models


Sony Ericsson W995 TEMS phones have a special setting USB Speed,
found under Menu Settings Connectivity tab USB. The choices
are High Speed (upper limit: 480 Mbit/s) and Full Speed (upper limit:
12 Mbit/s).

Select High Speed when running HSDPA in order to achieve the best
possible throughput. (This is not applicable to W995 EDGE, for obvious
reasons.)

Select Full Speed when the phone is using GSM 850 or 900 in an area
where it is forced to transmit at maximum power. If High Speed is used in
such situations, the GSM transmissions will interfere with the USB
connection, so that logfiles may be lost and the USB connection may
possibly break down, necessitating a reboot of both phone and PC.

Before changing the setting, make sure the USB cable is disconnected from
the phone. After you make the change, the phone will reboot automatically.
This takes some time (about 15 s).
Sony Ericsson W995 Models with Firmware Version R1F Or Later
You need to execute the autorun application (Startup.exe) supplied with the
phone. However, you must not install everything that comes with this
application; rather, you must limit the installation to the drivers:

In the interface of the autorun application, click the Advanced button.

Select the Drivers only option.

Make sure AutoPlay in Windows is not disabled when you connect the phone
to the PC. (On the other hand, AutoPlay should be disabled when running
TEMS Investigation; see section 8.2.3.)
Also turn off searching for drivers through Windows Update, or abort the
search manually (otherwise, this will take a very long time).
Sony Ericsson Android Phones (Qualcomm Chipset Based)
You need to activate USB debugging so that all relevant ports become
visible:

Press the Menu button, then choose Settings Applications


Development, and make sure USB debugging is enabled.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

73

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

For Xperia arc and X10, no APN must be set in the phone. Press the
Menu button, then choose Settings Wireless & networks Mobile
networks Access Point Names, and make sure nothing is set. (This
procedure is not needed on the Xperia arc S.)

Hisilicon Chipset Based Devices


A software utility called Hisilicon UE Agent must be running on the PC to be
able to activate a Hisilicon chipset based device in TEMS Investigation. The
utility is included on the driver CD; see section 7.1.3.
Nokia Phones
The Net Monitor function in Nokia phones (if present) must be turned off.
Qualcomm Chipset Based Devices
Some commercial Qualcomm chipset derived user terminals may not have
diagnostics reporting enabled by default, and Ascom is not at liberty to
distribute information on how to enable this function. Customers desiring to
use such devices with TEMS Investigation therefore need to contact the
relevant supplier or operator in each case.
Sequans Devices
The driver delivered by Sequans along with their device also installs a
daemon service sequansd (to C:\Program Files\Sequans Communications)
which must be running in order to enable communication between device and
PC. The required version of the Sequans driver package is
sqn_setup_2.3.1.0-8786.exe.
TEMS Investigation manages the daemon service automatically. However, as
a TEMS Investigation user you need to manually point out the LTE frequency
band and EARFCN on which the device should start searching. This is done
by editing an XML file sequansd.xml which resides in the same directory as
the daemon (see path above). The XML file is reproduced in full below; the
band and frequency are specified in the <script> section:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<sequansd>
<server>
<ip>127.0.0.1</ip>
<port>7771</port>
<host></host>

Connecting External Antennas to Phones

An external monopole antenna is connected to a phone by means of a


coaxial cable (and possibly an adapter) supplied with the phone.
Phone-specific details are as follows:
Sony Ericsson W995*, Z750i
When ordering an external antenna with one of these phones, the phone is
delivered with the antenna adapter already mounted. Just connect the
antenna to the adapter.

Configuring Devices for Data Services

10.6.1.

Setting Up the Device APN (UMTS)

To run packet-switched data services in UMTS, the Access Point Name


(APN) must be configured for the device. For most devices, this can be done
from within TEMS Investigation by defining a Network Connect configuration
set; see the Users Manual, section 20.16.3.1. Some exceptions to this rule
are covered below.
Nokia Phones
For Nokia phones you need to set the APN directly in the phones user
interface. For example, on the Nokia N96, navigate to Tools Settings
Connection Destinations.
Datang Phones
The APN configuration is accomplished when you run the Datang PostInstall
utility as described in section 7.1.2. If you want to change the APN later on, it
is most convenient to run DatangPostInstall.exe again (with argument).
Devices Using an NDIS Connection
A device that is going to use an NDIS connection must have an APN
preconfigured. If an APN is not already present on the device on delivery, you
need to enter one using a software application delivered with the device.
Please consult documentation from the vendor for specifics.

Chapter 11. PC and Device Configuration for Ericsson Fixed Wireless Terminal

11.

PC and Device Configuration


for Ericsson Fixed Wireless
Terminal

Ericsson Fixed Wireless Terminals (FWTs) are routers offering wireless


access to broadband Internet and telephony. The FWT constitutes a gateway
to a network.
Regarding FWT operation in general, please consult the documentation
delivered with the product.

11.1.

PC Configuration

If an FWT is to be used with TEMS Investigation, the following must be


observed:

The PC must not be connected to any other network. (The default


gateway must be unambiguously defined in the PC OS.)

The default IP address of the FWT is 192.168.1.1. It is possible to change


this address to any value; however, TEMS Investigation requires that the
IP address fall within the private address space ( IETF RFC 1918).

If a firewall or other security product is installed, you must make sure that
port 1895 is open, since the TEMS service uses this port.

11.2.

FWT Configuration

The FWT itself must be configured as follows:

Connect the PC and FWT with a LAN cable.

Configure the network interface on the PC with either a static IP address


in the range 192.168.1.0/241 or DHCP.

Using Telnet2, log in to the FWT (192.168.1.1)1 as root. The root


password will be different in each custom configuration. Please contact
your supplier or operator for assistance.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

81

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

Run the following commands:


# cf set tems.enabled true
# cf commit
The TEMS service will now always be running on the FWT whenever it is
turned on. There is no need to restart the TEMS service after the FWT
has been rebooted.
To disable the TEMS service, run these commands:
# cf set tems.enabled false
# cf commit

1. This is the default network on the FWT LAN, though it is possible that the
FWT has been configured differently.
2. In Windows 7/Vista, the Telnet client is by default not activated. To
activate it, do as follows: Open the Control Panel and navigate to
Programs and Features. Click Turn Windows features on or off. In
the feature list that appears, check Telnet Client.

</setting>
With semi-autodetect and no scanner response:
(In this example two scanners are identified. If UseDetector is false, the
setting ScannerIPs will be checked for scanner IP addresses. In this setting,
multiple IP addresses are separated by semicolons.)
<setting name="UseDetector" serializeAs="String">
<value>false</value>
</setting>
<setting name="ScannerIPs" serializeAs="String">

</setting>

13.2.4.

Configuring the PC Network Adapter (for Direct


ScannerPC Connection)

If the Andrew scanner is connected directly to the PC, a fixed IP address


should be selected at the PC end.

Configure the local area connection as shown in the following screenshot,


selecting the option Use the following IP address. Note that the IP
address selected here (192.168.3.252) is adjacent to the scanners IP
address in the example in section 13.2.2 (192.168.3.253). This is not a
requirement, but the two addresses do have to be on the same subnet
(first nine digits identical).

PC and Device Configuration


for DRT Transmitter

TEMS Investigation with connected external devices can be used in


conjunction with a DRT test transmitter which the devices can camp on. The
transmitter then needs some configuration, the steps of which are detailed
here for easy reference.
The DRT transmitter is controlled from a PC, to which it can be connected
directly by means of a cable, over a local area network, or via Wi-Fi. The
instructions that follow tell how to configure the transmitter and the PC in
each case.
This chapter applies to the DRT4302A+ transmitter model.

15.1.

Setting Up the Transmitter

Before you begin, you need to install the Nome application, which functions
as the transmitters user interface. Along with it, another application Yukon4k
is installed which is used for configuring the transmitters network connection.
1. After installing the above software, start Yukon4k. This application will
find the DRT transmitter automatically and present its name as shown
in the screenshot below.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

93

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

2. On the IP Address tab you can set IP addresses for Ethernet and
Wi-Fi. The adapter for Ethernet is eth0 and by default uses the IP
address 192.168.1.100. The Wi-Fi adapter is called eth1 and uses the
default IP address 192.168.2.100.
3. If you are going to connect to the transmitter via Ethernet, then for
Adapter = eth0 you need to select Obtain an IP Address
automatically and click the Set Unit IP Configuration button.
Compare section 15.3.
4. To be able to access the transmitter over Wi-Fi, enter appropriate
settings on the WiFi Settings tab:

ESSID: Wi-Fi network name.

Channel: Select an unused channel in the range 1 ... 10.

Mode: Always Ad-Hoc. The transmitters Wi-Fi (802.11b/g)


interface operates in an ad-hoc (peer-to-peer) configuration; the
interface currently does not support the Wi-Fi infrastructure mode
of operation. Control is determined when the unit is powered on.
Note that any device that is going to receive signals from the DRT
transmitter must support the ad-hoc mode of operation.

Security: None or WEP.

Key: If WEP is used, enter the WEP key here.

When you are done entering the parameters, click the Set Wireless
Configuration button.

94

Chapter 15. PC and Device Configuration for DRT Transmitter

5. If you want to change between Ethernet and Wi-Fi connection mode,


you must reboot the transmitter. See section 15.1.1 below.

15.1.1.

Changing between Ethernet and Wi-Fi Network


Configuration Modes

On power-up or boot, the transmitter checks to see if there is an Ethernet


cable connected to the DATA connector. If an Ethernet cable is present, the
unit is configured to use that cable for control; if not, it selects Wi-Fi for
communications.
To switch between these modes, it is necessary to turn off power to the
transmitter and plug in or plug out the Ethernet cable as appropriate. Then
power on the unit again, and the networking mode will be selected as just
described.

15.2.

Configuring the PC for Direct Connection

The DRT transmitter is shipped configured for a direct connection, with the
static IP address 192.168.1.100 assigned to its Ethernet (eth0) adapter. The
PCs Ethernet adapter must likewise have its TCP/IP address configured as
static and in the range 192.168.1.nnn, where nnn is any number between 1

There are two ways to connect to the DRT transmitter and set up its cell
information: through Nome or through a web interface.

15.5.1.

Configuring the Transmitter Using Nome

1. Start Nome and wait for the application to find the DRT transmitter.
When found, it appears in the list box.

Technology = GSM

Technology = WCDMA

3. In the top section highlighted in the screenshot above, you can


configure the following (letters refer to labels added in red):

98

Chapter 15. PC and Device Configuration for DRT Transmitter

A: Cellular technology, GSM or WCDMA.

B: Modulation On or Off. Mod On means that the transmitter mimics


a GSM or WCDMA downlink channel. Mod Off means that a CW
signal is transmitted.

C: RF Off = transmission turned off; RF On = transmission turned


on.

D: Output power, configurable in the range 20 ... +21 dBm.

4. Protocol Specific section (E): Here you set what band and (U)ARFCN
to use, along with other cell parameters.

15.5.2.

Configuring the Transmitter Using Web Interface

The web browser used to access the DRT transmitter interface must support
Ajax, for example: Internet Explorer 8 or later, Firefox 3.0.17, Firefox 3.6.3.
1. Connect to the transmitter with a web browser by entering the URL
http://drt4302snaaaa, where aaaa is the serial number of the device.
Alternatively, you can also enter the IP address for the transmitter: by
default http://192.168.1.100 for Ethernet or http://192.168.2.100 for
Wi-Fi.
2. The web browser interface looks somewhat different from the Nome
application. Click the Tx Configuration link to set transmission
parameters (left-hand screenshot below); compare section 15.5.1,
step 3. Clicking the Unit Status link displays device status information,
as shown in the screenshot on the right.

Preparations for AQM with


Audio Capturing Unit (ACU)

This chapter describes necessary preparations for conducting audio quality


measurement using an Audio Capturing Unit (ACU) in the form of a TerraTec
DMX 6Fire USB box.
Regarding this AQM solution in general, refer to the Users Manual,
chapter 37.

16.1.

Installing Drivers for ACU

See section 7.8 of this document.

16.2.

Adjusting ACU Physical Controls

On the rear panel of the ACU, turn all five knobs (HEADPHONE, GAIN 1,
GAIN 2, PHONO IN, MONITOR) to minimum.

The GAIN 1 and MONITOR knobs must not be adjusted. Doing so will
compromise the PESQ score.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

101

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

16.3.

Connecting Equipment to the ACU

1. To each phone, connect the proper audio cable (these are phone model
specific).
2. Connect an audio adaptor (generic for all phone models) to the other
end of each audio cable.
3. For each phone, connect the audio adaptor RCA plugs (white and red)
to the ACU as indicated below. Note that the channels on the TerraTec
box must always be paired as shown here (12 and 34), and not in
any other manner.

5. Connect the USB cable between the ACUs USB port and the PC.
6. Connect the ACU power cable to the POWER inlet and to a power
source.

16.4.

Settings in the TerraTec PC User Interface

A user interface, mimicking a panel of physical controls, is installed along with


the TerraTec driver. It is loaded into the Windows system tray by default and
represented by this icon:

The user interface has three tabs. The tabs you need to edit are MIXER and
OUTPUT & SETTINGS.
Throughout the user interface, text labels on buttons are color-coded thus:

Yellow color means enabled.

White color means disabled.

MIXER Tab

Make sure the settings are as follows:

LINK disabled in all columns.

INPUT 1/2 column: MONO disabled.

INPUT 3/4 column: LINE enabled, PHONO disabled.

DIGITAL IN column: (The OPT/COAX setting does not matter.)

WAVEPLAY 1/2 column: 1/2 enabled in bottom row.

WAVEPLAY 3/4 column: 3/4 enabled in bottom row.

WAVEPLAY 5/6 column: All buttons disabled in bottom row (these


outputs are not used).

DIGITAL PLAY column: All buttons disabled in bottom row.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

103

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

On this tab, you also need to adjust the WAVEPLAY volume sliders in order
to achieve suitable volume levels. Controlling the volume is essential in order
to obtain correct AQM scores.
Note that if the two phones in a pair are different models, each requires a
different volume setting, as tabulated below. The LINK button must then be
disabled for that pair of sliders; otherwise the sliders will be coupled and
always set identically.

In this example, the devices used are:


Phone 1: Sony Ericsson W995
Phone 2: Sony Ericsson Xperia arc
Phone 3: Nokia C7
Phone 4: Nokia C7

3
Phone no.

The appropriate settings are phone-specific:

Chapter 16. Preparations for AQM with Audio Capturing Unit (ACU)

OUTPUT & SETTINGS Tab

On this tab, required settings are as follows:

All volume sliders set to 0 dB.

LINK disabled in all columns.

MASTER column: MUTE disabled.

DEVICE SETTINGS section: MULTIDEVICE enabled.

16.5.

Configuration of Windows Settings

Volume settings must also be kept fixed in Windows for each of the devices
representing the TerraTec box there. (The instructions below refer to
Windows 7 user interface designations.)

Open the Control Panel and select Sound.

On the Playback tab, under Select a playback device ..., three DMX
6Fire Waveplay devices appear (with channel suffixes 1/2, 3/4, 5/6).

For devices DMX 6Fire Waveplay 1/2 and DMX 6Fire Waveplay 3/4,
do as follows:

Select the device.

Click the Properties button. The default settings should be kept on all
tabs:

On the Levels tab, the Speakers volume slider should be set to


maximum.

On the Enhancements tab, the box Disable all enhancements


should be checked.

NT12-6999 ver 1.0

105

TEMS Investigation 14.1 Getting Started Manual

The Advanced tab should look like this:

To prevent interruptions from any other sound sources (e.g. spoken


messages from TEMS Investigation), neither DMX 6Fire Waveplay 1/2
nor DMX 6Fire Waveplay 3/4 should be selected as default playback
device. The 5/6 device, on the other hand, can be selected since it is not
used.

16.6.

Calibration of Phones

To control volume levels throughout the measurement configuration, there is


also a need to calibrate the volume in the devices themselves.
Specifics are as follows:
Phone Model
Sony Ericsson W995

Volume Setting in
Phone GUI

16.7.

Speech Samples for Audio Quality


Measurement

The default speech samples used for AQM (WAV files) are stored under
My Documents\TEMS Product Files\TEMS Investigation 14.1\PESQ.
Different samples are used for PESQ and POLQA.
It is possible to exchange these samples for others by editing the file
Investigation.QualityMeasurement.config which is found under <TEMS
Investigation install dir>\Application\Configuration. Any other samples used
must also reside in the directory given above.
Note: Bear in mind that replacing the default speech samples could
impact the accuracy of AQM scores, since the default samples
have been designed to exhibit specific characteristics with regard
to speech content, speech volume level, speech distribution
within the sample, and more.
The number of samples should always be four. At least this many samples
must be provided; on the other hand, if more samples are listed in
Investigation.QualityMeasurement.config, only the first four will be used.
Samples should not be longer than 8 seconds; the default speech samples
are of length 5.5 s. The speech activity in the samples should be between
40% and 80%, and there should be a minimum of 3.2 s of active speech in
each sample ( ITU-T Recommendation P.862.3, section 7.2).
Sample rates must conform to those of the default speech samples; note that
these differ between AQM algorithms as well as between the playback
samples and those fed as references into the AQM algorithm.
As far as languages are concerned, the following applies:

PESQ is expected to work for speech in any language; but since it has
been tested, validated and calibrated with a limited number of languages,
the accuracy of PESQ for other languages is poorly known. In practice,
this means that using samples in languages other than Western
European ones (e.g. British or American English, German, Dutch,
Swedish, French) cannot be recommended.

POLQA has been validated with a wider range of languages: American


English and British English, Chinese (Mandarin), Czech, Dutch, French,
German, Swiss German, Italian, Japanese, and Swedish.
