Flexi BTS Licensing principles


Pool license concept Operator orders in advance a big amount (e.g. need for 1 month rollout) of unallocated licenses NetAct operator distributes licenses during NE integration via NSN License Generator (LG) Simplified logistics, reduces site visits for capacity expansion No floating licenses BTS licenses tied with the physical System Module HW, NOT with the site. When you move the box you also move the licenses with it. Long term licenses Exception: also short term licences for channel capacity SW Feature licenses also possible

HSDPA traffic does not include 3G soft handovers. HSUPA includes 40% soft handover overhead in Iub. 44 NSN Siemens Networks Radio Planning Essentials / NPO Capability Development

Number of Simultaneous HSDPA users


HSPA traffic uses shared channel where the peak rate throughput is
shared by all users in the same cell. When the number of user's transmitting data simultaneously increases, the average throughput per user decreases.
