Veritune in action: GSM and UMTS antenna changes for RF optimization.

Actix Veritune lowers the cost of RF optimization by using measured data for informed decision making on antenna changes and allows real-world scenarios to be reproduced in the office, significantly reducing the number of RF optimization cycles.

It enables wireless operators to minimize the number of drive tests required to optimize a network to meet required key performance indicator (KPI) targets. And by allowing engineers to identify solutions more efficiently, Veritune makes it possible to accelerate network roll-out and reduce the cost of ongoing optimization.

In addition, Actix Veritune analyzes how antenna changes would affect the network performance by creating ‘synthetic’ drive tests incorporating change predictions into unchanged measured data. If performance does not meet required KPI targets, an engineer can make further changes in the optimization step and again test the performance using Veritune. This takes optimization iterations out of the field and onto the users desktop.

Resolve complex RF issues fast

Resolve complex RF issues fast Just 4 easy steps to fast, in-office optimization: 1 • Load

Just 4 easy steps to fast, in-office optimization:

  • 1 Load and sanity check collected data efficiently Configure settings and thresholds to match your network and processes Check that current network configuration and terrain data covers the drive test area Select desired region or cluster to drill down Check relevance of measured data to identify sectors suitable for optimization

  • 2 Identify poorly performing areas View radio performance statistics for entire drive and for individual sectors Pinpoint coverage issues and associated sectors on map thanks to icons Pick a sector on map or in table to see antenna characteristics List sectors polluted by or polluting the highlighted sector

  • 3 Review improvement scenarios and their impact Select a sector characteristic (antenna type, azimuth, downtilt) Review scenarios showing impact of different settings on overall drive statistics Exclude a sector when interference exceeds capacity or coverage value Simulate effect of single or multiple site outage for disaster recovery scenarios

  • 4 Simulate visually the effect of antenna changes Make a change then see before/after map and before/after statistics Make multiple changes and see cumulative effects instantly Consider trade-offs and incorporate local knowledge for informed decision-making Export optimal changes showing initial and final configurations
