Poor Best Servers RSCP coverage: best servers RSCP is less than -93dBm Poor Best Servers Ec/No coverage: best servers Ec/No is less than 9.6dB Excessive No. of SC (RSCP) : No. of SC >= 4 & Threshold of RSCP >= 93dBm


If Field test engineer finds a new problem area, he will enter the Company Confidential necessary matters (description problem property, values) in

During Drive Test (4)

Notes at the time of Logging Stop
Condition of the Logging Stop All planed tests are finished Field test engineer is directed to stop Logging A break is taken (i.e Lunch) Logging file is updated (every one hour) Equipment failures Notes The stop point is marked in the route map The Required matters are filled in the Drive Data Sheet Stop time, reason of stopping, value of odometer
