What’s In This Manual

This book catalogs all data presented in TEMS Investigation Data Collection and Route Analysis as well as all preconfigured presentation windows supplied in the two applications. Information elements in Data Collection and Route Analysis are covered in separate chapters. It should be pointed out that the IEs are almost completely the same in both applications, except that certain entire IE categories are found only in Data Collection. The reason for providing separate listings is the large number of minor differences between the applications in matters of naming, organization of arguments, and so on. These differences arise from the more sophisticated structuring of IEs in Route Analysis.

Conventions

For the sake of brevity the following conventions are used in this book: The Data Collection User’s Manual is referred to as “DC UM”. The Route Analysis User’s Manual is referred to as “RA UM”.

Information Elements in Data Collection

The tables below list all information elements that can be presented by TEMS Investigation Data Collection. For ease of reference, each category on the Info Element tab is still covered in one single, alphabetically ordered list. (Certain deviations from strict alphabetical order occur in the application in order to achieve more logical orderings and groupings.) However, since the number and diversity of the information elements are great, a special column with codes is used in some tables to distinguish important subgroups among the elements.

GSM Information Elements

IE Support in Connectable Equipment Some elements are presentable only with a subset of the connectable devices. See the table in section 5.2, page 262. Properties of Information Elements: The Asterisk Column In the column marked *, a set of codes is used to state conditions under which an information element is • • • valid: a non-trivial condition must be fulfilled for the element to be valid not valid: the element is normally valid, but in certain circumstances it is not (code ends in “–”) extended compared to the simplest GSM case: the element sometimes carries more information, for example when frequency hopping is used (code ends in “+”)

If nothing is written in the asterisk column, the element is always valid (provided it is supported by the device). Code c g g+ Valid if a cell file is loaded. Valid when running GPRS. Not valid for voice. The element is richer for (E)GPRS, in one of the following ways: • • • g– ga h more values, i.e. more arguments – e.g. C/I Best values have a more complex meaning – e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots) larger range of possible values – e.g. Channel Type. Meaning

Not valid when running (E)GPRS. Valid in GAN mode or for GAN-capable phones. Valid if frequency hopping is used.

TEMS Investigation 9.0: Information Elements and Events

Code h+

Meaning The element is richer if frequency hopping is used. If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. • • No GPRS connection: One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63) GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on each channel (arguments 0 through 64 · 8 – 1 = 511). Exception: C/I Hopping List has only one value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63).

If frequency hopping is not used, the element contains values for the single channel employed. • • No GPRS connection: One single value (argument 0). GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on the channel (arguments 0 through 7).

Example: C/I Best. hc+ If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63). No separate values for each timeslot for a GPRS connection. Example: C/I Hopping List. h– hs hs+ Not valid if frequency hopping is used. Valid when running HSCSD. Not valid for voice. The element is richer for HSCSD, in one of the following ways: • • • hs– p more values, i.e. more arguments – e.g. C/I Best values have a more complex meaning – e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots) larger range of possible values – e.g. Channel Type.

Not valid when running HSCSD. Reported by positioning equipment.

Signal strength on the current BCCH. Especially useful for obtaining a correct measure of the cell size when frequency hopping is used and power control is applied to the TCHs. The following steps are used to find a value for the element: 1. Neighbor list. If the BCCH frequency is in the neighbor list, report its signal strength. 2. Hopping list. If the BCCH is used as hopping frequency (in dedicated mode), report its signal strength. 3. Idle mode. If the phone is in idle mode, report RxLev (dBm). If frequency hopping is not used, step 2 becomes “If BCCH = TCH ...”. Invalid if no value is found in any of the above steps.

The Rake fingers are not sorted by signal strength; they come in the order they are reported. The ordinal (“1st”, etc.) refers to a UMTS frequency. Separate sets of Finger elements are provided for the full number of UMTS frequencies that can be scanned simultaneously. The Motorola E1000 may report finger measurements on a number of different channels (see the elements Finger ... Position Type); the other devices that support finger measurements always report them on the CPICH. The “Finger” and “Finger Position” series of elements contain the same data. The latter series consists of arrays of size 2560 corresponding to the sequence of chips in a radio frame timeslot, with the received finger information positioned at the correct indices. These elements are provided for bar chart plotting. The Finger Slot Pos element is of course not needed in the Finger Position series and is consequently absent from it.

Description

These elements combine scrambling codes from all scanned UMTS frequencies, sorted by descending Aggr Ec/Io. The sorting order of the “Best” elements is not affected by the settings in the General window (DC UM section 9.4.13.1). Regarding CPICH scanning in general, see DC UM section 9.4. Argument (where present): 1 is the scrambling code with the highest Aggr Ec/Io, etc.

cp

CPICH scanning: The aggregate code power of the scrambling code (Eb, energy per bit) relative to the total signal power in the channel (Io). CPICH scanning: The aggregate code power (energy per chip) of each scanned scrambling code. The aggregate code power is a measure of the total signal power (distributed around the main peak due to multipath propagation) that is above the PN threshold (see DC UM section 9.4.3). CPICH scanning: The aggregate code power of the scrambling code (Ec, energy per chip) relative to the total signal power in the channel (Io). CPICH scanning: The difference between the aggregate code power and peak code power.

Arg 1 ... 512

* cp c p

Description CPICH scanning: Deduced name of the cell that uses each scanned scrambling code. The algorithm determining the cell name takes as input the SC number, the UARFCN, and the position reported. It searches the cell file for cells with matching SC number and UARFCN within a 50 km radius. If multiple matches are found, the cell closest to the position is selected. If no positioning data is available, the information element will still be presented, but the cell names may then of course be wrong. The algorithm in this case simply picks the first cell in the cell file with matching SC number and UARFCN. Invalid if no cell file is loaded.

In the “Sc Best” element, this categorization is applied for each UMTS frequency, so there will be one “1” with associated “2”s for each frequency. Invalid if no cell file is loaded.

WiMAX Information Elements

Notes on CINR The number of samples on which to base the CINR mean values and standard deviations is set in the WiMAX scan setup dialog (DC UM section 11.3.1, “Number of Samples for Stats”). However, this figure only serves as a guideline to the scanner; in practice the scanner may on some occasions use a lower number of samples as input to the statistics calculation. This number is reported in the “Samples Taken” elements (see below). Note that as power level fluctuations become minute, the standard deviation likewise approaches zero and hence tends towards negative infinity when expressed in dB. A large negative number has been used as the lower endpoint for the standard deviation range. Information Element Table

Data Service Testing Information Elements

This section lists the information elements in the “Data” category, i.e. those obtained when performing data service testing. The “Data” category contains two kinds of elements: • Application-level data service measurements. In the PC, these are taken in the Winsock interface. Application-level measurements reflect the performance experienced directly by the user, as opposed to the performance at lower levels in the protocol hierarchy (RLC, LLC, RLP, etc.). Statistics on the dial-up connection obtained from Microsoft’s Remote Access Service (RAS), i.e. Dial-up Networking. Remember that not all data services are run over a dial-up connection (see DC UM section 12.10).

The “Data” information elements are mostly independent of the bearer service used (packet-switched or circuit-switched). A number of elements are however bearer-specific. Note the meaning of the terms connection and session which are used in the explanations below. They are defined in DC UM section 12.11.1.1.
IE Name App. Bytes Received Range/Unit 0 ... 2 · 109 bytes Arg – Description Number of bytes received at the application level since dial-up. Login information is included in this byte count. Number of bytes sent at the application level since dial-up, including login information. Current throughput for data received at the application level (current downlink throughput). Current throughput for data sent at the application level (current uplink throughput). Time since dial-up, i.e. how long the currently established data service connection has been up. Given in hours, minutes, and seconds.

GSM Information Elements

Properties of Information Elements: The Asterisk Column In the column marked *, a set of codes is used to state conditions under which an information element is • • • valid: a non-trivial condition must be fulfilled for the element to be valid not valid: the element is normally valid, but in certain circumstances it is not (code ends in “–”) extended compared to the simplest GSM case: the element sometimes carries more information, for example when frequency hopping is used (code ends in “+”)

If nothing is written in the asterisk column, the element is always valid and is reported by all supported phones. Code c g g+ Valid if a cell file is loaded. Valid when running GPRS. Not valid for voice. The element is richer for (E)GPRS, in one of the following ways: • • • g– more values, i.e. more arguments – e.g. C/I values have a more complex meaning – e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots) larger range of possible values – e.g. Channel Type. Meaning

Not valid when running (E)GPRS.

LZT 108 9854 R1B

TEMS Investigation 9.0: Information Elements and Events

Code h+

Meaning The element is richer if frequency hopping is used. If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. • • No GPRS connection: One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63) GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on each channel (arguments 0 through 64 · 8 – 1 = 511). Exception: C/I Hopping List has only one value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63).

If frequency hopping is not used, the element contains values for the single channel employed. • • No GPRS connection: One single value (argument 0). GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on the channel (arguments 0 through 7).

Example: C/I. hc+ If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63). No separate values for each timeslot for a GPRS connection. Example: C/I Hopping List. hs hs+ Valid when running HSCSD. Not valid for voice. The element is richer for HSCSD, in one of the following ways: • • • hs– more values, i.e. more arguments – e.g. C/I values have a more complex meaning – e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots) larger range of possible values – e.g. Channel Type.

Not valid when running HSCSD.

Finger Info

The Rake fingers are not sorted by signal strength; they come in the order they are reported. Rake fingers are reported separately for each UMTS frequency. The Motorola E1000 may report finger measurements on a number of different channels (see the element Finger Position Type); the other devices that support finger measurements always report them on the CPICH. The “Finger” and “Finger Position” series of elements contain the same data. The latter series contains arrays of size 2560 corresponding to the sequence of chips in a radio frame timeslot, with the received finger information positioned at the correct indices.

Argument 2: Power threshold (in dB) relative to the power of the strongest scrambling code; used to identify possible active set members. See DC UM section 9.4.9 for a full description.

“Sc” elements (general remarks)

The attributes for these elements have the following meanings: • • Not sorted: Scrambling codes are ordered by index (no ranking). Lowest index first. Strongest: Scrambling codes are ranked by Aggr Ec/Io in descending order, for each scanned UMTS frequency separately. Weakest: Scrambling codes are ranked by Aggr Ec/Io in ascending order, for each scanned UMTS frequency separately. Best (among all frequencies): Scrambling codes from all scanned UMTS frequencies are ranked by descending Aggr Ec/Io in a single list. The first argument is always 1 in this case. Argument 1: UMTS frequency. Frequencies are ordered by ascending UARFCN. This argument is not used with the attribute “Best” (see above). Argument 2: Scrambling code. Scrambling codes are ordered as specified by the chosen attribute (see above). Some “Sc” elements are not differentiated for scrambling codes and therefore lack this argument. –10 ... 21 dB 1 ... 4; 1 ... 512 CPICH scanning: The aggregate code power of the scrambling code (Eb, energy per bit) relative to the total signal power in the channel (Io). See also general remark above.

The arguments have the following meanings: •

TEMS Investigation 9.0: Information Elements and Events

IE Name Sc Aggr Ec

Range/Unit –130 ... –25 dBm

Arg 1 ... 12; 1 ... 512

Description CPICH scanning: The aggregate code power (energy per chip) of each scanned scrambling code. The aggregate code power is a measure of the total signal power (distributed around the main peak due to multipath propagation) that is above the PN threshold. See also general remark above.

Sc Aggr Ec/Io

Sc Cell Name

Text

1 ... 12; 1 ... 512

CPICH scanning: Deduced name of the cell that uses each scanned scrambling code. The algorithm determining the cell name takes as input the SC number, the UARFCN, and the position reported. It searches the cell file for cells with matching SC number and UARFCN within a 50 km radius. If multiple matches are found, the cell closest to the position is selected. If no positioning data is available, the information element will still be presented, but the cell names may then of course be wrong. The algorithm in this case simply picks the first cell in the cell file with matching SC number and UARFCN. Requires cell file and positioning. See also general remark above.

b. Note on Nokia phones: VTQI is based on transport channel BLER. Nokia phones do not report BLER for individual transport channels but only an average over all channels (see Trsp Ch BLER, DL (Log). This means that VTQI scores based on Nokia reports will not be accurate if further transport channels are used in parallel with the one used for the video call.

Notes on Plain-text Decoding of Mode Reports

6.1.

TPC per Cell (Sony Ericsson)

While in soft handover, the phone is power controlled jointly by all members of the active set. Power control commands are received on the DPCCH. Certain Sony Ericsson phones deliver two mode reports that are relevant in this context, TPC per Cell and DPCCH DL. TPC per Cell shows the power control commands from each cell in the active set separately, whereas the DPCCH DL report gives the final power control decision obtained by combining and weighting the input from all active set members. The plain-text decoding of the TPC per Cell mode report represents the power control commands from each cell by a string of letters as follows: • • • • • Q = Not valid: The cell was not part of the active set at this time. U = Up: The cell ordered the phone to raise the power. D = Down: The cell ordered the phone to lower the power. C = Skip: The phone was in compressed mode at this time, measuring on a different UARFCN or on GSM. N = No change: No power control command, power unchanged.

Since the power control frequency is 1500 Hz, each letter in the string represents 1/1500 of a second.

Event Name Missing GSM Neighbor

Symbol

* sg

Description/Extra Information This is a GSM event based on scan data that includes decoded BSIC and System Information. The event does not require a cell file. It is assumed that the strongest cell with decoded BSIC is the serving cell. Among other cells with decoded BSIC, the six strongest ones are looked up in the strongest cell’s neighbor list (which is extracted from System Information messages). For each cell that is not in the neighbor list, an instance of this event is generated. The event is only generated once for each combination of assumed serving cell (ARFCN + BSIC) and missing neighbor (ARFCN). Extra information: BCCH ARFCN and BSIC of serving cell; ARFCN, BSIC, and signal strength (in dBm) of missing neighbor.

Description/Extra Information This event is based on scan data in WCDMA. It requires either • • that the scan data includes decoded SIBs, or that a cell file is loaded and that the currently strongest cell has a neighbor list defined in that file.

(yellow bar on the right)

If both SIB and cell file data are available, the SIBs are used and the cell file is ignored. A separate type of event is generated for each scanned UMTS frequency (up to four at a time). Triggered in the following cases: 1. A cell not defined as a neighbor of the strongest cell is more than 3 dB stronger than at least one neighbor of the strongest cell. 2. A cell not defined as a neighbor of the strongest cell is within 3 dB of the strongest cell. (The event is then triggered regardless of the strength of defined neighbors.) 3. No cell from the strongest cell's neighbor list is detected, but at least one cell is detected besides the strongest cell. (The event is then triggered regardless of the strength of that cell.) The signal power measure used in the comparisons is Aggr Ec. Extra information: Different for each of the three cases listed above. 1. Defined neighbor SC and Ec/Io; missing neighbor SC and Ec/Io. 2. Strongest cell SC; missing neighbor SC and Ec/Io. 3. Strongest cell SC; missing neighbor SC.
