Drive Route

Checklist

Drive Route Basics


All sectors to be covered during the test

Carry a hardcopy of the drive route direction, while DT reaches the

Instruct the driver to follow the drive route

Drive Route Guidelines


Best server plot Drive route to be collected by SOLPAR DT engineer from Circle RF
Lead before he reaches the site.
All motorable roads covering all three sectors of the site are to be driven. The
motorable roads which are not accessible or cant be driven due to any blockage
should be captured with a snapshot for proof.
If SCFT is performed on a standalone site then each sector to be driven up to serving
cell RSRP as per morphology in the main lobe as defined in under mentioned table:

Morphology Type

Coverage Threshold (RSRP dBm)

Dense Urban

-107

Medium Urban

-110

Suburban

-113

Rural

-116

Morphology RSRP levels

Drive Route Guidelines..


If SCFT is done on a site that is not a standalone site and the neighbor site is radiating
then the drive route should be done until the handover happens with the neighbor site,
but if the Neighbor site is not radiating then the drive should be done until neighbor site.
The stationary test should only be done in the main lobe of serving antenna
DT Engineer will instruct the car driver for the direction to be followed based on predefined drive route based on GPS location in drive test tool. Engineer will carry the drive
route handmade copy, during the SCFT test.

LSM-R, availability of drive route and checklists. Before proceeding to the site
make sure you have these
TSSR gives details about eNB physical parameters such as antenna height,
azimuth, tilt, pictures of obstruction, site drawings and map views
LSM-R parameters include details such as VSWR, Tx power and PCI
Ensure FTP connectivity before proceeding to site
Cover all sectors during the drive

Physical Checks at Site

Physical checks during site survey


Physical verification of site with respect to data given in TSSR/Cell ref. Need to
check under mentioned points.
Once DT engineer reaches the site he should validate the PCI as seen on field
with cell ref file and then perform a walk test around the site in clockwise and
anticlockwise direction for checking the inter-sector handover and correct PCI
as seen in cell ref: file.
Site location in terms of Lat/Long, Site name and address, Antenna azimuth,
Antenna height, Antenna Tilt (Mechanical Tilt), Antenna physical blockage in
main/side lobe (if any) & Tower type.
If there is any deviation in actual versus TSSR/Cell ref then SOLPAR engineer
will try to rectify it on field with due permission from Samsung RF lead and if
he is unable to do so then the same shall be informed to Samsung and the DT
should move over to the next site.
If the deviation cannot be corrected as confirmed by Samsung RF lead, then
the same has to be updated in site forge by the DT engineer.

Physical checks during site survey


Only after completing physical verification and passing the same SOLPAR
engineer will start performing SCFT activity.
In case of tower/antenna access issue from bird nests, honeybees comb etc.
the corresponding Samsung area manager should be informed and DT should
move to the next site.
SCFT once started should be completed within the same day, until and unless
there is some constraint that is making the process shift to other day.
Physical blockage in direction of serving antenna should be noted and
snapshot should be taken. The same comment with snaps has to be updated in
the SCFT report by SOLPAR project manager. The SCFT has to be carried on
however.

Measuring Site Co-ordinates


Check the battery of GPS (72 channel GPS)
Point GPS towards clear, open skies for accuracy
GPS Setting time >5 min & GPS number of satellites > 4
Low Battery voltages and rare Geomagnetic storms may result in erroneous
GPS readings
GPS should not be used for Ground Elevation readings as the inaccuracy can
be well over 30m
Stand in the center of the site location (GBM, RTT,RTP)
Once the satellites are acquired, note co-ordinates for N & W in degree - de
cimal format.
Update this information into check list for pre-post comparison and for data
base tracking

Checking Antenna Azimuth


Stand in front of the Antenna
When taking compass readings, keep at least 8m distance from any magnetic,
metal, or current carrying structures such as towers, vehicles, or cables for
correct readings
Open compass and wait a moment till the compass needle is stationary
Check the antenna azimuth with reference to North & measure the value in
degrees
Compare the observed value with the one in the TSSR
In case a mismatch is detected, make corrections on site
Mention the values in the check list for pre-post comparison and for database
tracking

Check Azimuth marking on map


Check the service direction of the antenna
Mark the main serving direction of the antenna on the map

Tower Height Measurement Laser Meter


Stand on the edge of tower
Press start button and then press measure button

Wait for 2-3 minutes or check the ground or building


from the built-in binoculars in the laser meter
Press the measure button again
Take pictures of the value in meters

Tower Height Measurement - Tape


Drop the measuring tape from the edge of the tower platform
Team member at the ground end will record the value

Antenna Height RTP / RTT

Antenna Height GBT / GBM


Compare the value on TSSR with actual
result
Correct the Antenna Height if mismatch
with TSSR Report

Antenna Mechanical Tilt Measurement


Bring tilt measure in contact with antenna on the back side & center()
Adjust the tilt measure () to level off ()
Check tilt of antenna (), as per the picture red line is on 3rd mark from zero, w
hich means that the tilt is 6 degrees {one mark = 2 degree and consider the bott
om scale}
Compare the value on TSSR with actual result
Correct the Mechanical Tilt in case of mismatch with the TSSR Report
Mention the values into check list for pre-post comparison and for database trac
king
To change tilt, loosen all nuts, adjust tilt as desired and then tighten them

Drive Test

SCFT Drive Test


After completing physical verification, SOLPAR engineer will start performing
drive test.
Drive test to be performed on all motorable roads.
The mobiles need to be attached on car dashboard while doing drive test.
Check FMS server connectivity to site by downloading test scenarios on XCAL
Auto Mobile over mobile.
SCFT drive test activity has two type of tests.
1. Stationary Test
a. Attach
b. VOLTE Short call
2. Moving Test
a. FTP -DL
b. FTP -UL

Stationary Test ( Alpha Sector)


Stationary Test Procedure:

Drive test engineer will start the drive test activity with stationary test.
Move over to Alpha sector and perform following activities
Latch on alpha sector PCI and RSRP, it should have a stable dominant RSRP
level from serving cell, and neighbor cells should not be dominant.
Check GPS status and select destination value of co-ordinates from map
window.
Assign Stationary-1 call setting with Cycle information & site details, (CYCLE
should remain the same until the complete SCFT test (STATIONARY & MOVING)
ends), if you have to restart the test cause of any issue then issue new and
different cycle number, but it should be same for stationary and moving test
(ideally it should be incremented by 1, every time you repeat the test on same
site), cycle is a reference for naming the log files.

Stationary Test( Alpha Sector)


Perform under mentioned test by pressing AUTO CALL over the s4 mini
phone.
. Stationary Test
a. Attach
b. VOLTE Short call
At the end of Auto call press status as In Progress.
Press Auto DRM/DRX Upload button which is popped up & wait for upload to
finish.

Stationary Test(Beta Sector)


Drive test engineer now moves over towards Beta sector and
performs the following activities during stationary test:
Check PCI
Assign Stationary-2 call setting with cycle information & site details
Perform under mentioned test by pressing AUTO CALL over s4 mini
handset.
a. Attach
b. VOLTE Short call
At the end of Auto call press status as In Progress.

Press Auto DRM/DRX Upload button which is popped up & wait


for upload to finish.

Stationary Test( Gamma Sector)


Drive test engineer shall move over towards Gamma sector and perform the
following activities during the stationary test
Check PCI and latch to it.

Perform under mentioned test by pressing AUTO CALL over s4 mini
handset.
a. Attach
b. VOLTE Short call
At the end of Auto call presses status as Completed.
Press Auto DRM/DRX Upload button which is popped up & wait for
upload to finish

Moving Test
After completion of Stationary test now the DT has to go for the Moving test, drive test
engineer will use two S4 mini handsets.
There will be two different tests that shall be performed on these handsets.

One handset for DTDL


One handset for DTUL

Moving test call logging should start by performing a walk test around the site in clockwise and
anticlockwise direction for checking the inter-sector handover within the SCFT site and checking
the correct PCI as seen in cell reference file.
Drive test engineer will carry out the remaining part of moving test while in car in a continuous
log.
Keep checking the PCI of serving cell so as to confirm handover between neighbors of same site.

Move from Alpha sector to Beta sector to check handover between them.
Move from Beta sector to Gamma sector to check handover between them.
Move from Gamma sector to Alpha sector to check handover between them.
Move from Alpha sector to Gamma sector to check handover between them.
Move from Gamma sector to Beta sector to check handover between them.
Move from Beta sector to Alpha sector to check handover between them.
Make Coverage footprint of each sector in all possible drive routes based on Morphology based RSRP
Levels.
After finishing the clockwise / anti-clockwise routes, You must run through DTR (Drive test route) provided
to you by Samsung RF lead
NOTE : Samsung RF lead has to provide DTR based on best server plot , as per example attached below. Or
Alternately Samsung RF lead must follow procedures provided by National RF Optimization team to prepare
DTR , This is Mandatory

Moving Test
Important: If handovers are not happening between neighbor cells then stop the drive
and call up LSMR engineer for handover definition or any alarms related to the same,
and resume the drive, post the resolution of the same.

Press Stop after completion of drive on both handset( based on steps


as above) and press status as "Complete .
Press Auto DRM/DRX Upload button which gets popped up in both
handset & wait for upload to finish.
Ask the LSMR engineer to lock the site.
Inform the SOLPAR PM and Samsung area manager about the completion of
the drive and move for the next drive if time permits for the day.

Checklist during drive


If any Attach fail, /Access fail, Handover fail, Sector swap are observed during
drive test then call should be immediately stopped and LSMR engineer should
be contacted for any running alarm. Later fresh drive for the same should be
done post rectification.
During drive test and eNB physical verification if any physical obstruction due
to which drive couldnt be done on that road then SOLPAR DT engineer needs
to take the snapshot and pass it over to Solpar PM.
If SOLPAR engineer cant drive around in the clockwise or anticlockwise
direction then he has to mention the reason against the same along with a
snapshot proof. Also if for the stationary test, SOLPAR engineer is unable to go
into the main lobe while still in car, then he must try to walk and go into major
lobe of the sector, if even that is not possible then he should take snaps to
support the same.
The SOLPAR engineer should not wait more than 30 mins (post escalation to
LSMR and self troubleshooting) for any issue resolution at the site. If issue
resolution is taking time, then he should move to the next site.

Post SCFT Drive


All snapshots post SCFT (road and antenna obstructions) should be taken and
sent to SOLPAR Project Manager/ Samsung Area Manager/Circle RF Lead.
Backup of log files in memory card to be taken by the DT (this will required if
any file got corrupted during upload). Same to be handed over to Circle RF
Lead.
Contact LSMR Engineer to lock the site (all three sectors).
Handover the keys back to from where they were taken.
Inform the Solpar PM and Samsung RF lead about completion of the drive test.
Move over to the next site.

Observed Issue:

Unable to download Stationary or Moving scenario


Root Cause:

check the FTP server connectivity in your phones, check the IP address, user id
and password and server path as shown below.

Important Notes

Sector Swap Verification


After Physical site parameter verification, condu
ct drive test in clock wise and anti-clock wise dir
ection to identify any sector swap
If found, take corrective action before going for
coverage drive test
If service-direction of PCID has changed, Data
Throughput degradation and Handover Fail can
be observed
Sector Swap / Call drop: During Stationary test ,
Engineer must verify correct PCI for every
sector, This can be done by checking the
Changed PCI per sector and matching it will DTR
or Cell Ref file provided to him by RF Lead.
During clockwise and anticlockwise moving test
if there is call drop &PCI is changed after call
drop then redo the clockwise/anticlockwise
loop if call drop occurs again. Dont proceed
with SCFT & report to RF Lead

Work Flow Management for SCFT

Introduction to Work Order Assignment Management


Work Order Assignment Management is also known as WAS.
WAS is going to help users in automating the Work Order(WO) flow in a
systematic manner using a portal called SITEFORGE.
Using this portal each level of Management employees will receive and
execute their WO or Task assigned to them.
Helps to trace the network status through online mode.
Provides Visual steps to guide users on progress and upcoming steps.
Improves productivity & complete visibility.
Helps users to monitor Parameter Compliance Index(Planned Vs. Actual).
Helps users to Search/Filter Sites & WO based on various parameters.

How can check Sector Swap
[Figure-4. Stationary Test Point]

1. Choose Stationary Point in the main lobe of antenna.

2. Check that you get only one PCI assigned to test sector.
- eg. For figure shown, you must get PCI 9 for alpha sector.
If you get 10 PCI then that is sector swap.
Alpha

- In this case you have to change CPRI cable to correct


the swap. (Alpha PCI 9 CPRI <-> Beta PCI 10 CPRI).
3. Repeat the above procedure for remaining sectors as well.
