The described messages are necessary for correctly creating input data files.Actix Cellopt2 File Interface Technical Reference Revision 10 Introduction 4 1 Introduction This document describes some of the messages that form the Cellopt AFP 2 generic file interface. Chapter 4 gives examples of the most common input files for Cellopt AFP.actix. and how they are created with different messages. Some necessary Cellopt AFP concepts and definitions are explained to help you understand the data needed for the input files.com . PROPRIATARY AND CONFIDENTIAL www.

A list of the exceptions in the network e.1 Input File An input file to Cellopt AFP typically contains several messages of the same or different type.A list of cells and their illegal/forbidden frequencies. The input messages have the letter i as the first character in the mnemonic and is used for sending data into Cellopt AFP 2. 2. Illegal/ Forbidden frequency lists . iCARF .3 Mnemonics Different mnemonics are used to define the different types of messages. iCONC .

This could be a list containing the sector traffic in the network.A list defining the sets/subsets/MAL that you are using in your network. Cellopt AFP uses the following file forms: Radio Database . Interference Lists . 2. input messages and application messages. separation requirements for different cell relations and illegal/forbidden frequencies for certain sectors. Neighbour Lists .com .g. e. There are two different basic types of messages. Blank lines and lines starting with # will be seen as comment lines and will be ignored by Cellopt AFP.This contains information on all the cells in the network to be considered.Used to define which frequencies belongs to a Sub set/Set /MAL.Used to define a relation between two radios or sectors.

Important mnemonics for the file interface are: iSECT . iFRQG .Actix Cellopt2 File Interface Technical Reference Revision 10 Description 5 2 Description This chapter contains the descriptions of the different types of definitions that need to be understood.This tells us how much/how many percent traffic/area will be interfered if two radios in two particular cells are allocated to the same or adjacent frequency. fields separated by a TAB (ASCII character 9). Other/Special lists .A list of the neighbor relations in the network. numbers of radios required and existing frequencies allocated. a model name and.2 Message A message is a single line of information beginning with a mnemonic. These messages give you a powerful way of defining the input data to Cellopt AFP. It contains cell names.actix.Used to define sectors in the network. The application messages have the letter a as the first character in the mnemonic and is used for sending commands and some data into Cellopt AFP 2.
