Cell Radius Calculation


Procedure: In the GSM Engineering Parameter dialog box or WCDMA Engineering Parameter dialog box, click the Calculate Cell Radius icon to calculate the cell radius. Note that the fields, such as Azimuth, NodeBID, Longitude, and Latitude, are required fields when you calculate the cell radius. If these fields are empty, the cell radius cannot be calculated. The principle for calculating the cell radius is as follows: According to the azimuth and beamwidth of a cell, the Assistant calculates the distance between the cell and other base stations within cell coverage, and then obtains a weighted value that is used as the cell radius. The calculated cell radius is considered as the basis for determining the over coverage problem. Note that the indoor cell does not need to calculate the cell radius, but you must fill the related information in the CellType field in engineering parameters. Otherwise, indoor cells are considered as macro cells by default. The cell radius is displayed, as shown in the chart in the lower left corner of this slide. You can determine whether to display the cell radius through the layer. The length of a line indicates the radius of a cell. You can double-click a line to modify the cell radius.

Note: Before the theme analysis is performed, cell radius must be calculated.

WCDMA Over Coverage


Note: Over coverage refers to that the coverage areas of certain NodeBs exceed the planned range and incontinuous dominant areas are formed in the coverage areas of other NodeBs. The Assistant calculates the cell radius based on engineering parameters. If a DT point is not within the area specified by the cell radius threshold and the difference between the RSCP of the serving cell and the maximum RSCP of a neighboring cell is lower than the value of the configuration parameter, this DT point is considered as the DT point where the over coverage problem occurs. In addition, the Assistant supports the analysis of data collected by UEs or scanners.
Description of configuration parameters Alarm Threshold: indicates the over coverage alarm threshold. Over Coverage Rate(%) = Over Coverage Count/Total Count If the value of Over Coverage Rate is higher than Alarm Threshold, the analysis results are displayed in red in the Theme Result View window after the theme analysis is performed. Coverage Extended Radius: indicates the cell radius extended parameter factor. Cell coverage distance threshold = Cell radius x Coverage Extended Radius RSCP Offset: indicates the RSCP offset. When the difference between the maximum RSCP of a DT point and the maximum RSCP of a neighboring cell is lower than RSCP Offset and is higher than the cell coverage distance threshold, this DT point is considered as the DT point where the over coverage problem occurs. Distance Step: indicates the distance step. Based on the distance step, the Assistant counts the number of DT points where the over coverage problem occurs and the total numbers of DT points.

Huawei confidential, 2010-07-15

WCDMA No Serving Cell Dominance


Note: No serving cell dominance refers to that no serving cell is available in the coverage area or calls in the serving cell in the coverage area are frequently handed over. In this case, frequent handovers may occur, and therefore the system efficiency is reduced and call drops occur. The Assistant determines the DT points where the problem of no serving cell dominance occurs according to the difference between the RSCP of the serving cell and the RSCP of the neighboring cell (collected by UEs or scanners). If the difference between the RSCP of the serving cell and the RSCP of the neighboring cell is smaller than the specified threshold, the DT points within the coverage area are considered as the DT points where the problem of no serving cell dominance occurs. Alternatively, the Assistant determines the problem of no serving cell dominance according to the events related to frequent handovers. If the number of handover events within the specified time exceeds the related threshold, the DT points measured within the specified time are considered as the DT points where the problem of no serving cell dominance occurs.
Description of configuration parameters Alarm Threshold: indicates the alarm threshold of no serving cell dominance. Analysis Mode: indicates the analysis mode. The analysis mode is categorized into the analysis based on RSCP and the analysis based on events related to frequent handovers. Analysis based on RSCP RSCP Threshold: indicates the RSCP threshold of the serving cell. The RSCP threshold of the distance ranging from 0 to 1 km is -95. The RSCP threshold of the distance more than 1 km is -100. For the distance within 5 km, each 500 m is considered as one segment. The distance over 5 km is considered as one segment. Therefore, the total number of segment within the total distance is 11. RSCP Threshold: indicates the RSCP difference threshold, that is, the difference threshold between the RSCP of the serving cell and the RSCP of the neighboring cell. If the difference between the RSCP of the serving cell and the RSCP of the neighboring cell is less than RSCP Threshold, the DT point is considered as the DT point where the problem of no serving cell dominance occurs. The default value of RSCP Threshold is 5 dBm. NB Count Threshold: indicates the number of neighboring cells. The number of neighboring cell that is smaller than or equal to NB Count Threshold is valid. Analysis based on events related to frequent handovers Interval Time: indicates the interval between handover events. Cell coverage distance threshold = Cell radius x Interval Time HO Event Count: indicates the threshold number of handover events. If the total number of 1D events and cell reselection events that occur within Interval Time is the same as HO Event Count, it indicates that frequent handovers occur.

Distance Step: indicates the distance step. Based on the distance step, the Assistant counts the number of DT points where the problem of no serving cell dominance occurs and the total number of DT points.

WCDMA Downlink Interference


Note: Downlink interference refers to that the interference signals generated by the interference source are on the downlink frequency band in the mobile network. After receiving interference signals, the UE cannot distinguish NodeB signals from interference signals, and therefore the communication between the UE and the NodeB is disrupted. As a result, call drops occur. Based on the parsed data of UEs or scanners, the Assistant determines the Ec/Io and RSCP of the serving cell. If the receive level is high and the service of quality (QoS) is low, it is considered that the downlink interference problem occurs.

Description of configuration parameters


Alarm Threshold: indicates the downlink interference alarm threshold. DL Interference Rate (%) = DL Interference Count/Total Count If DL Interference Rate is higher than Alarm Threshold, the analysis results are displayed in red in the Theme Result View window after the theme analysis is performed.
RSCP Threshold[0,500*N): indicates the RSCP threshold of the serving cell within the distance ranging from 0 to 500*N. If the RSCP of the DT point is higher than RSCP Threshold[0,500*N), it indicates that the RSCP of the DT point is good. Ec/Io Threshold: indicates the signal quality threshold. If the Ec/Io of the DT point is higher than Ec/Io Threshold, it indicates that the receive quality of the DT point is good. Distance Step: indicates the distance step. Based on the distance step, the Assistant counts the number of DT points where the downlink interference problem occurs and the total number of DT points within the coverage area.

WCDMA Intra-Frequency/Inter-Frequency Neighboring Cell Analysis


Note: The Assistant supports the analysis of missing intra-frequency neighboring cells and analysis of missing inter-frequency neighboring cells. The Assistant automatically determines the mapping between the serving cell of the DT point and neighboring cells of the DT point, and compares the determined result with the imported neighboring cell data to filter out missing neighboring cells. The data collected by scanners can be used for the analysis of missing intra-frequency neighboring cells and the analysis of missing inter-frequency neighboring cells. Before analysis, import the data of configured neighboring cells.

Description of configuration parameters


Analysis of missing intrafrequency neighboring cells Analysis of missing interfrequency neighboring cells Ec/Io Difference Threshold: indicates the Ec/Io difference threshold. If the difference between the Ec/Io of the serving cell and the Ec/Io of the neighboring cell is lower than Ec/Io Difference Threshold, the decision of missing intra-frequency neighboring cell can be performed. The default value of Ec/Io Difference Threshold is 3 dB. Serving Cell RSCP Threshold: indicates the signal quality threshold. If the RSCP of the serving cell is greater than Serving Cell RSCP Threshold, the decision of missing inter-frequency neighboring cell can be performed. The default value of Serving Cell RSCP Threshold is -105 dBm. Neighbor Cell RSCP Threshold: indicates the RSCP threshold of interfrequency neighboring cell. If the RSCP of the inter-frequency neighboring cell is higher than Neighbor Cell RSCP Threshold, further analysis can be performed. The default value of Neighbor Cell RSCP Threshold is -90 dBm. Neighbor Cell Ec/I0 Threshold: indicates the Ec/Io threshold of the interfrequency neighboring cell. If the Ec/Io threshold of the inter-frequency neighboring cell is greater than Neighbor Cell Ec/Io Threshold, further analysis can be performed. The default value of Neighbor Cell Ec/Io Threshold is -12 dB. If one of the preceding conditions is met, the measured cell is considered as the missing inter-frequency neighboring cell of the serving cell.

WCDMA Pilot Pollution


Note: Pilot pollution refers to that there are too many strong pilots, but no pilot is strong enough to be the primary pilot at a point. Based on the analysis of DT data collected by UEs or scanners, the Assistant determines whether the measured cell is the neighboring cell of the serving cell and identifies the DT points where the pilot pollution problem occurs. Formula: The DT points where the pilot pollution problem occurs must meet the following conditions: Pilot pollution signal of the active set {NB Cell Count} Total pilot signal strength {RSCP Threshold} Difference between the strongest pilot signal and any other pilot signals < {RSCP Difference}

Description of configuration parameters RSCP Threshold: indicates the RSCP threshold. The default value is 100. RSCP Difference: indicates the RSCP difference, that is, the difference between the RSCP of the serving cell and the RSCP of the neighboring cell. The default value is 5 dBm. NB Cell Count: indicates the threshold of neighboring cell count. The default value is 3. The DT point where the pilot pollution problem occurs can be considered if one of the preceding conditions is met.

GSM Over Coverage


Note: Over coverage is produced when the coverage areas of certain BTSs exceed the planned range. In this case, incontinuous dominant areas are formed in the coverage areas of other BTSs. The Assistant calculates the cell radius based on engineering parameters. If a DT point is not within the area specified by the cell radius threshold, this DT point is considered as the DT point where the over coverage problem occurs. Description of configuration parameters Alarm Threshold: indicates the over coverage alarm threshold. Over Coverage Rate (%) = Over Coverage Count/Total Count If Over Coverage Rate is higher than Alarm Threshold, the analysis results are displayed in red in the Theme Result View window after the theme analysis is performed. Distance Threshold: indicates the extended coefficient of the cell radius. Cell coverage distance threshold = Cell radius x Distance Threshold The default value of Distance Threshold is 2. Ratio of Start Distance: indicates the ratio of the start distance within a distance segment. Start Distance = Cell radius x Ratio of Start Distance Ratio of End Distance: indicates the ratio of the end distance within a distance segment. End Distance = Cell radius x Ratio of End Distance Bound Number: indicates the number of distance segments between the start distance and the end distance. Bound Number affects only the statistics in the chart in the Theme Detail window.

GSM Poor Coverage


Note: Poor coverage refers to that the signal level in certain coverage area is lower than the minimum access threshold of MSs. In this case, MSs cannot camp on a cell, and therefore location update and location registration cannot be initiated. As a result, call drops occur. Based on the measurement data of MSs in the GSM network, the Assistant analyzes the receive level of the serving cell to determine whether the DT points have the poor coverage problem. The following table shows the related parameters:

Description of configuration parameters Alarm Threshold: indicates the poor coverage alarm threshold. Poor Coverage Rate (%) = Poor Coverage Count/Total Count If Poor Coverage Rate is higher than Alarm Threshold, the analysis results are displayed in red in the Theme Result View window after the theme analysis is performed.

RxLev Threshold [0,500*N): indicates the receive level threshold within the distance ranging from 0 to 500*N. The default value is shown in the left figure. The unit of the distance is meter. N is an integer ranging from 1 to 10.

Huawei confidential, 2010-07-15

GSM Azimuth Garbled


Note: Azimuth garbled refers to that the antenna azimuth is configured incorrectly, which leads to improper coverage. Based on the measurement data of GSM MSs, the Assistant determines whether the DT point is within the cell coverage range.
Description of configuration parameters Alarm Threshold: indicates the azimuth garbled alarm threshold. Azimuth Garbled Rate (%) = Azimuth Garbled Count/Total Count If Azimuth Garbled Rate is higher than Alarm Threshold, the analysis results are displayed in red in the Theme Result View window after the theme analysis is performed. Angle Threshold: indicates the angle offset threshold. The default value is 20 and the unit is degree. After Angle Threshold is set, the horizontal beamwidth is increased by 40 degrees.

GSM No Serving Cell Dominance


Note: No serving cell dominance refers to that no serving cell is available in the coverage area or calls in the serving cell in the coverage area are frequently handed over. In this case, frequent handovers may occur, and therefore the system efficiency is reduced and call drops occur. After analyzing UE data, the Assistant determines the difference between the receive level of the serving cell and the receive level of the neighboring cell. If the difference between the receive level of the serving cell and the receive level of the neighboring cell is lower than the specified threshold, the DT points are considered as DT points where the problem of no serving cell dominance occurs. Description of configuration parameters
Alarm Threshold: indicates the alarm threshold of no serving cell dominance. No Serving Cell Rate (%) = No Serving Cell Count/Total Count If No Serving Cell Rate is higher than Alarm Threshold, the analysis results are displayed in red in the Theme Result View window after the theme analysis is performed. Rxlev Threshold: indicates the receive level threshold of the serving cell. Rxlev Diff Threshold: indicates the difference between the receive level of the serving cell and the receive level of the neighboring cell. The default value is 5 dBm. NB Cell Count Threshold: indicates the threshold number of neighboring cells with the receive level lower than RxLev Diff(dBm). The default value is 3. If the receive level of a DT point is lower than Rxlev Diff Threshold and the number of neighboring cells of the DT point is smaller than NB Cell Count Threshold, this DT point is considered as the DT point where the problem of no serving cell dominance occurs. Ratio of Start Distance: indicates the ratio of the start distance within a distance segment. Start Distance = Cell radius x Ratio of Start Distance Ratio of End Distance: indicates the ratio of the end distance within a distance segment. End Distance = Cell radius x Ratio of End Distance Bound Number: indicates the number of distance segments between the start distance and the end distance. Bound Number affects only the statistics in the chart in the Theme Detail window.

This helps users learn the network competition status of a city and know the difference in KPIs and indicators before and after network optimization. In addition, a comparison report can be generated for users to check whether expected results are obtained. Benchmark reports are in .doc format and the contents in benchmark reports can be customized. By default, the Assistant provides the following templates: GSM CS Benchmark Template, GSM PS benchmark Template, WCDMA CS Benchmark Template, and WCDMA PS benchmark Template. For details, see the figure in the lower left corner of this slide.

Custom KPIs
Procedure:

Choose Tools > Custom KPI.


Function Description: (1) The Assistant enables users to add custom KPIs. The KPIs in the Assistant are categorized into the following types: Counting KPIs and calculation KPIs. Counting KPIs are common KPIs, which need not be calculated through certain formulas. Calculation KPIs, however, need to be calculated through certain formulas. For example, to calculate the calculation KPI Call Setup Delay Time Avg, you must calculate this KPI through the following formula: Call Setup Delay Time Avg = Call Setup Delay Time/Call Counter Here, Call Setup Delay Time and Call Counter are counting KPIs. (2) The Assistant provides predefined KPIs. The threshold parameters related to these predefined KPIs can be modified.

Automatic Import
Procedure: 1. Create a project. 2. Choose File > Automatic Project Setting. 3. Set parameters in the Automatic Analysis Setting dialog box. Setting Description: The automatic import can be operated in either of the following modes: (1) Time mode (automatic periodic import): This mode is mainly applied in the automatic DT scenario. In this mode, data is uploaded to a specific directory or a sub-directory on the server for automatic DT in real time. As shown in the figure in the upper left corner of this slide, you can set Mode to Time mode, and set times and Monitor path. (2) Text mode (automatic import triggered by ok.txt): This mode is mainly applied in network optimization scenario. In this mode, DT engineers perform DT tests, analysis engineers save data in the specified directory for analysis. After a DT test is complete, analysis engineers place ok.txt in the directory, then the server automatically triggers the data import into the Assistant. This reduces the time for data import.
