TEMS DISCOVERY NETWORK BRIDGING THE


OPTIMIZATION GAP
For mobile operators that are serious about delivering ubiquitous quality and
availability, traditional network performance management tools simply arent
enough. To home in on problems that were impossible to pinpoint before
(those in difficult-to-drive-test spots or related to individual subscriber or
phone modelissues), operators must complement their network performance
management and drive-testing tools with advanced network visualization and
optimization capabilities.
Breakthrough network optimization tools such as TEMS Discovery
Network (previously known as TEMS Visualization Professional) use subscribercentric event-based data collected at the OSS to bridge the critical gap
between performance management systems and drive testing. While
performance management tools provide high-level key performance indicators
(KPIs) from counter data, and drive-testing tools capture thin slices of network
traffic, TEMS Discovery Network derives detailed information from large
volumes of live network traffic.
Tems Discovery Network is a desktop based solution for detailed
drilldown and analysis of subscriber call trace data. Tems Discovery Network
can also integrate with tems Discovery Enterprise to provide the
troubleshooting aspect for the platform solution. (tems Discovery Enterprise is
Ascom Network Testings client-server-based solution for analysis of large
volumes of data from devices, network elements and applications).

RADIO NETWORK OPTIMIZATION


Built-in advanced algorithms enable efficient radio
network optimization. Examples for WCDMA include: neighbor relation optimization including interfrequency and IRAT, pilot pollution detection and
geolocation, RF diagnostics using DL and UL radio
measurements and identification of overshooting
cells.

IN-DEPTH TROUBLESHOOTING
With more details than counters and more coverage
than drive testing, previously hidden issues in the
radio network can be identified. Performance issues
can be isolated to the cell, phone model or even individual subscriber level. From high-level statistical
analysis, engineers can directly drill down into individual call-by-call analysis.

OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS
By utilizing subscriber-centric call trace data collected
in the radio networks nodes, TEMS Discovery Network
empowers operators to improve network quality and
operational efficiency with virtually no additional
costs for data collection and post processing.

NETWORK REQUIREMENTS
Ericsson GSM data sources R-PMO, MTR, CTR
Ericsson WCDMA data sources GPEH and UETR
Ericsson LTE data sources CellTrace and UE Trace
Nokia Siemens Networks data sources
Megamon GEO Interface for WCDMA
Huawei interface Call Trace

Now includes Google Mapsbased geolocation of traffic


density and coverage metrics
with advanced visual analytics.

Features

Description

Multidimensional KPI View

Quick identification and troubleshooting of poorly performing cells, clusters, WCDMA phone models, and individual
subscribers. Statistics for accessibility, retainability, mobility,
and packet-switched data performance are aggregated
from WCDMA GPEH/UETR/Megamon GEO, GSM R-PMO/CTR/
MTR, and LTE CellTrace/UE Trace data with direct drilldown to
detailed call analysis for problem calls.

Vendors/technologies
supported

Ericsson (GSM, WCDMA, and LTE), Huawei (WCDMA) and


Nokia Siemens (WCDMA).

Editions

TEMS Discovery Network is a desktop version that can be


operated on a stand-alone basis and is also included with
TEMS Discovery Enterprise, Ascoms enterprise post processing
and analytics platform.

Geolocation

Strong geolocation and visualization features: Geolocate


problem events, follow calls and hand-offs on a map, determine
neighbor optimization graphically. Helps engineers know
where calls are dropping and provides statistical view of
problem areas.

Other GSM Functionality

Cell timeslot monitor, estimated positioning, binned maps,


task manager, and more.

TEMS discovery network enables network


operators and services providers to:
Automatically post-process subscriber-centric, event-based data generated
by the network infrastructure, so it is ready for use.
Analyze and organize that information, including statistical data, for radio
network troubleshooting, optimization, functionality verification, and better
decision making.
Find network coverage and quality problems that were impossible to
pinpoint before.
Achieve optimal performance from their networks, allowing them to improve
network KPIs and reduce subscriber churn.

Troubleshoot holistically across todays multivendor, multitechnology network


environments to uncover problems not detected by drive testing or high-level
statistical analysis, resolve those problems rapidly, and optimize network
performance and resource utilization.
