The Agilent Technologies E7475A GSM drive test system is a scalable, integrated, air interface measurement system. The system is used to obtain comprehensive RF measurement and call performance data as it relates to a user’s location. Depending on the selected hardware options, it can make measurements on E-GSM900, GSM-R, DCS1800, GSM1900 or dual-band GSM/DCS networks. A PC interfaces to one or more Agilent digital receivers and/or test mobile phones. The system software controls the receivers and phones to make and record user-selected measurements. A GPS receiver, which can be integrated with the receiver, may be used to obtain positioning information that is collated with the measurement results. The system can also be configured for use with a pen-tablet computer for indoor measurements without GPS. Logged data can be exported to mapping software for analysis.

There are three ways of configuring the broadcast channel measurements – all BCH. . The user list of frequencies can be imported from a text file. Channel power differs from the CW power measurement in that the total power is integrated across the specified channel width.. step size and count. The system can also measure the total power (channel power) within a user-defined bandwidth at a userdefined set of frequencies. ❏ Trace: Enter a start frequency. The results are displayed in a bar graph of amplitude versus frequency or a line graph of amplitude versus time. ❏ User list of channels: The user inputs a list of up to 40 GSM channels to be measured. the BSIC can be decoded and a BER 1 measurement can be returned. This allows regularly used sets of channels to be stored for quick loading into the application. depending on the receiver options. The measurements are independent of network parameter settings. 902 MHz and 903 MHz. The results are displayed as a trace with one point for each of the channels.

Where the Cell ID is known. The measurement can return either the peak power or average power over the 8 time slots. fading and show a bar graph of symbol delay spread. a dialog box prompts the user to enter the header information listed below. The primary BSIC and C/I are much less affected by vehicle speed. the E7475A can return the total power in the channel. Ability to decode the secondary BSIC is dependent on the received signal characteristics at the instant the measurement is made. The format of the Cell Database is text file with the following fields: ❏ Cellname ❏ Latitude ❏ Longitude ❏ Cell ID ❏ Serving ARFCN ❏ Azimuth ❏ TCH ARFCN Report generator and display printing The E7475A system provides fast and easy report generation. 6 . These features include the ability to record and playback data sets. After selecting generate report.

No FCH. so minimal text entry is required. a 'best guess' algorithm is implemented. Each report includes a header section. for example in neighbor cell measurements or receiver based measurements. it can return the ratio in dB of the power in each channel to that in the immediately adjacent channels. ❏ Co-channel measurement For a single user selectable broadcast channel. export the data to post-processing software packages and define flexible alerts and alarms. All of the current displays (VFPs) are captured to an HTML file. This algorithm makes use of the geographic location. No SCH. Where no Cell ID is known. Cell naming The phone-based measurements and receiver-based broadcast channel analyzer provide cell naming features. Measurement types ❏ Adjacent channel measurement The E7475A can make adjacent channel interference measurements. It can also decode the BSIC of the primary and secondary signals in the channel. Performance is optimal while stationary and will degrade with speed. Smart defaults and persistent information are used. In this way the test mobile can control which channels the receiver measures. for example in the phone serving cell measurement. there are some features that are common to all systems. For two user selectable channels. The measurement controls of the receiver can be linked to the results of measurements from the test mobile.
