Importing cell site data using the NetworkExplorer
The Network Explorer allows you to import network element data,creating a cell plan file called cellrefs.txt. It also lets you browse andedit this network information once it has been loaded. The AutomaticImport feature provides an automated method of updating cell siteinformation as changes are made to the network.This section describes how to import delimited data, and how toconfigure the Automatic Import tool.
Importing Network Data 
The important thing to remember about the network data importprocess is that the process requires two files:1
 
A delimited text file that contains unformatted data arranged intabular form, with one row for each individual sector in a network.2
 
A blank file, containing only Actix header information, to bepopulated with formatted data.
Obtaining Site Data in tabular format
In order to import cell site data from your own network, you will needto obtain a delimited text file containing the data listed in the tablebelow. To maximize the benefit your Actix Software can bring to UMTSnetwork analysis, the parameters listed in bold in the table on thefollowing page are REQUIRED for cell data to function with logged datain the main workspace. All other parameters are optional.The data may come from a network database or a planning toolconfiguration file. As long as the data is in a tabular format with onerow for each sector, you will be able to import the data.

The figure below is an example of a delimited UMTS file that could beused to import a site list. Though the columns can be in any order forimport, the figure shows all of the REQUIRED fields. Additionally, theExcel spreadsheet must be saved as a TEXT file for import.

Guidelines for formatting tabular data
Although cell-site data fields do not need to be listed in a particularorder, following these guidelines will provide the best results:1
 
The Site ID field must contain a unique value for each site location.Beware of non-unique Site IDs - that is, entries that have multiplesets of latitudes and longitudes for the same Site ID. Non-uniqueSite IDs will result in site markers appearing on the map withoutsector wedges. Site Names need not be unique - they are used forlabeling purposes only.
