Band mobile is operating e. TCH ARFCN: On which Traffic Freq. Idle. Dedicated & Packet. 62. • • • • • • .Current Channel • Cell GPRS Support: Tells sector is having GPRS or not. Time slot: On which time slot of current TCH call is going on. of TRX. Viz.g. BCCH ARFCN: It tells by which BCCH is the mobile station getting served. e. Values are Yes or No . Mode: It is shows in which state is mobile operating. time slot no. It is decoded by mobile on every Sync. Band : It tells in which Freq.g.

Current Channel • Channel Type: Type of channel mobile is getting now. Like BCCH / SDCCH/8 + SACCH/C8 or CBCH / TCH/F +FACCH/F +SACCH/F.g. E. E. Speech Codec: It shows FR for Full Rate.g. Channel Mode : Shows mode of coding like Speech Full Rate of Half Rate. • • • • . 2. Cipher by A5/2. HR for Half Rate & EFR for Enhanced Full Rate. Sub Channel Number: It is displayed at a time when mobile is on dedicated mode at time of call setup when it is getting SDCCH at that time it shows which SDCCH it is getting out of 8 available. Ciphering Algorithm : It shows ciphering algorithm used by the system to protect data for privacy.

of freq. 0 means sector will start from first freq. viz. Mobile Allocation Index Offset (MAIO): It is the number which tells from which freq. from given MA list for sector hopping has to be started. 1 – 63 random hopping sequences. Hopping Frequencies : It displays no. Values are Yes or No. Hopping Sequence Number (HSN) : Indicates sequence in which frequencies are allowed to hop from the MA List. • • • .Current Channel • Hopping Channel : It shows that current sector is having hopping feature or not.g. MA List for hopping of that sector. 0 for Cyclic Hopping. E. to hop. on which mobile is allowed to hop. 063.

Range of RxQual 0 -7. • .Radio Parameters • • • RxLev : Receiving level in terms of dBm that mobile is receiving from the site.g. BER is a measure for the voice quality in network. It is indication of voice quality in network. BER 0 to 0. FER : Frame Erasure Rate it represents the percentage of frames being dropped due to high number of non-corrected bit errors in the frame..8 % which corresponds to RxQual of max. Max. Range of -30 dBm to -110dBm. E. RxQual : Quality of voice which is measured on basis of BER. Depending on BER RxQual is measured. BER countable and useful is up to 12. BER Actual : Ratio of the number of bit errors to the total number of bits transmitted in a given time interval. 7.2 % corresponds to RxQual 0.

MS Power Control Level : Displays range of power control from 0 to 8 depending upon network design. E. C/I : The carrier-over-interference ratio is the ratio between the signal strength of the current serving cell and the signal strength of undesired (interfering) signal components. FR – 21 & HR – 17 are respectively ideal values.5 s intervals.Radio Parameters • SQI : SQI is a more sophisticated measure which is dedicated to reflecting the quality of the speech (as opposed to radio environment conditions). 0 means no power control and 1 means level that is defined by operator viz. This means that when optimizing the speech quality in your network. 2 dBm less acc. It is computed on basis of BER and FER. SQI is the best criterion to use. For EFR 30. It should be atleast > 9 . To airtel. • • . SQI is updated at 0.g.

• . and decreases the overall interference level on the radio channels affecting the capacity of the network. which is important for MSs. TA : Value that the base station calculates from access bursts and sends to the mobile station (MS) enabling the MS to advance the timing of its transmissions to the BS so as to compensate for propagation delay. From BS.. This feature reduces the power consumption of the transmitter. Value of 0 means MS in radius of 550mt.Radio Parameters • DTX : Discontinuous transmission (DTX) is a mechanism allowing the radio transmitter to be switched off during speech pauses.

Decrease by 1 but increase by 2. it shows current value of RLT. Range of 4 – 64 in step size of 4. Normally 16. MS Behavior Modified : This window shows current settings for the mobile station. When it reaches zero it results in normal DROP Call. • • . for instance whether handover is disabled or multiband reporting enabled. it shows current value of RLT.Radio Parameters • RL Timeout Counter (Cur) : This parameter define the maximum value of the radio link counter expressed in SACCH blocks. 24. RL Timeout Counter (MAX) : This parameter define the maximum value of the radio link counter expressed in SACCH blocks. Range of 4 – 64 in step size of 4. 20.

. BSIC : BSIC of the neighboring cell. Valid during idle mode of mobile station. C31 & C32 : GPRS signal strength threshold criterion C31 and GPRS cell ranking criterion C32. C1 & C2 : These are the cell path loss criterion and cell reselection criteria. Valid both in packet idle and packet dedicated mode. RxLev : Receiving Level in dBm of neighboring cell.Serving + Neighbor       Cell Name : Name that describes the neighboring cell as per the cellfile. ARFCN : Channel number mobile receives as neighbor.
