Accessibility (1) RRC Setup Success Rate


RRC Setup Success Rate (service) The RRC setup procedure is trigged by different reasons as identified by the establishmentCause field in the RRCConnctionRequest message: emergency, highPriorityAccess, mt-Access, mo-Signalling, mo-Data, delayTolerantAccess-v1020. The UE sets the establishmentCause and received by eNodeB. Causes except mo-Signalling are categorized as service related ones, and the cause of mo-Signalling is categorized as signal related ones. This KPI evaluates the RRC setup success rate with service related causes in a cell or cluster.

RRC Setup Success Rate (Signal) This KPI evaluates the RRC setup success rate with signal related causes (mo-Signalling) in a cell or cluster.

Accessibility (3) QCI Definition


LTE-SAE QoS Class Identifier
There are 9 QCIs defined in 3GPP TS 23.203. Each of QCI has its QoS requirements, and each E-RAB will has the attribute of QCI.

Accessibility (6) Call Setup Success Rate


VoIP Call Setup Success Rate (VoIP CSSR)
This KPI evaluates the success rate of the whole setup procedure for VoIP service (QCI 1 service) in a cell or cluster, which mainly includes three phases : RRC setup phase, S1 Signaling connection establishment phase and VoIP E-RAB setup phase:

Retainability (1) Call Drop Rate


VoIP Call Drop Rate
This KPI can be used to evaluate the call drop rate of VoIP service (QCI 1 service) in a cell or cluster, the call drops happen when eNode initiate active ERAB (with data in buffer) release process by E-RAB Release Indication or UE Context Release Request message with Cause field with abnormal reasons (the cause other than : Normal Release, Detach,User Inactivity, cs fallback triggered, UE Not Available For PS Service,or Inter-RAT redirection), and all of the other E-RAB releases are consider as normal E-RAB release.

Call Drop Rate(ALL)


This KPI can be used to evaluate the call drop rate of all services in a cell or a cluster, including VoIP service.

Call Drop Rate(Always Online)

ERAB _ Abnormal Re lease 100% ERAB _ Re lease

This KPI can be used to evaluate the call drop rate of all the services, including the VoIP services, when the always online state is active. In always online state, the E-RAB number of UE entering the un-synchronous state from synchronous state will be considered for the KPI calculating.

Retainability (3) - Call Setup Complete Rate


VoIP Call Setup Complete Rate (VoIP CSTR)
This KPI evaluates the call Setup Complete Rate for VoIP service (QCI 1 service) in a cell or cluster, which means the rate of the VoIP service can be normally terminated once user do the attempt to setup the service. And it can include 4 phases: RRC setup phase, S1 Signaling connection establishment phase, VoIP E-RAB setup phase and VoIP service E-RAB release phase;
