Fo r ma t )
The required BSS network configuration files can be retrieved from the Nokia CM database by
running the Perl script provided by Schema. The generated output will contain a set of text files
with the BSS network configuration. The script automatically generates SQL queries to retrieve
the required data from Nokias Oracle database as follows:
1. Open a binary FTP session in the Nokia OSS machine.
2. Upload the script file NokiaNetConfig.pl to a directory with R/W permissions (chmod
755).
3. Activate the script by using the following command in UNIX:
> perl NokiaNetConfig.pl
4. FTP (in binary mode) the sixteen new text files.
Note: Since the Perl script directly connects to the Oracle database, the user must log in and
provide a password to begin the process.

2. 3 S e c t o r Co o r d in a t e s File
The sector coordinates file should be in tab-delimited text file format, and should include
geographical information for all of the network sectors, including the following columns:
Sector
Latitude
Longitude
Azimuth
LAC (optional)
CI (optional)
Keywords (optional)
The latitude and longitude values should be expressed in decimal-degree format, with up to six
digits following the decimal point.

2. 4 Mo b ile Me a s u r e me n t s Da t a Re c o r d in g s
The following network activities should stop while data is being recorded:
BSC split
Site re-homing (BSC/site relations change)
Changes in LAC and CI
Sector mechanical changes, such as tilt, azimuth, and antenna
The following changes should be made only during maintenance (but not while recording):
TRX additions
Frequency changes (TCH)
Frequency changes (BCCH and BSIC)
Neighbor additions or deletions
Site additions
No other parameters should be changed.
Note: BSC Version S10.5 (or later) should be used.
2. 4. 1 BA Lis t Cr e a t io n fo r Da t a Co lle c t io n
The Defined Adjacent Cell and Channel Finder measurements collect signal strength and C/I
data for mobiles in the MAHO report.
In order to collect information on BCCH channels that are not in the adjacent cell list, a new
BCCH allocation list should be defined to include all BCCHs to be measured. This BA list should
then be assigned to each BTS.
This makes use of The Double BCCH Allocation List feature, which provides the mobile with a
user-defined frequency list for measurements, containing (a) all BCCH frequencies belonging to
defined neighbors and (b) any additional frequencies to be measured. Handover performance is
not affected when this list is generated.
The Forte Measurement Plan, used to collect reliable data for network modeling, and allocates
frequencies to each sector BA list.
The process involved in importing and exporting the Measurement Plan depends upon whether
the CM Plan Manager, the CM Provisioner, or the CM Operations Manager is used.

For DAC Recording: ZTPI:MEASUR,DAC;


Figure 25: DAC Recording
Ultima Forte Required Data Inputs for Nokia Infrastructure
Schema Confidential & Proprietary February 2011 Page 28 of 61
Use the following MML commands to start/modify the CF, DAC, and RxStatistics recordings:
ZTPM:MEASUR,CHAN_FIN:ALL,09002100,12:DB1=-12,DB2=0 defines CF
measurements, beginning at 09:00 and finishing at 21:00, daily, with a 12-hour resolution.
ZTPS:MEASUR,CHAN_FIN begins the CF measurement.
ZTPM:MEASUR,DAC:ALL,09002100,12:DB1=-12,DB2=0 defines DAC
measurement, beginning at 09:00 and finishing at 21:00, daily, with a 12-hour resolution.
ZTPS:MEASUR,DAC begins the DAC measurement.
ZTPM:MEASUR,RXLEVEL:ALL,09002100,12:RX1=10,RX2=15,RX3=20,RX4=30,RX5=40;
defines the RxStatistics measurement, beginning at 09:00 and finishing at 21:00, daily, with
a 12-hour resolution.
ZTPS: MEASUR,RXLEVEL starts the RxStatistics measurement.

Note: The thresholds for recordings (between Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3 measurements)
should be the same thresholds for all sectors and BSCs in the DAC and CF files.
To change the recording time on the DAC, CHAN_FIN and RXLEVEL, use the following MML
commands: (Example commands for CHAN_FIN)
ZTPI:MEASUR,CHAN_FIN; - CHECK STATUS
ZTPE:MEASUR,CHAN_FIN::; - FORCED TO STOP TO DISABLE AND LOCKED
ZTPM:MESASUR,CHAN_FIN:ALL,18-00-22-00,4:DB1=-12,DB2=0:; - SCHEDULE IT
ZTPS:MEASUR,CHAN_FIN,; - DEFAULT START NOW
Repeat the same for DAC and RXLEVEL measurements, and assure that they are scheduled for
the same time period. Once the measurements are set, the recording will start and end only at
the scheduled time period. However, to continue to record twenty-four hour measurements, the
commands listed above should be used to restore the original recording.
2. 4. 3 Re t r ie vin g Mo b ile Me a s u r e me n t s Re s u lt s

5. 1. 1 3G Up d a t e fo r NS N Ne t wo r ks
1. The update will require Netact CM Operations Manager and CM Editor.

IMPORTANT: Modifications to different Network Elements should be implemented
depending on which OSS the 2G cells are located in.
a) If the ADJGs are from one OSS to another (Nokia or another vendor), the modifications
should be made to the Virtual Cells located in the OSS where 3G is (The VCs are under the
BSC-0/BCF-0).

Ultima Forte Required Data Inputs for Nokia Infrastructure
Schema Confidential & Proprietary February 2011 Page 42 of 61
The notation of the VCs is BTS-(LAC+CI) . Where LAC takes 5 spaces, for example:
BTS-91 _ _ _ 2081. The maximum allowed is 10 spaces, 5 for LAC and 5 for the CI.
b) If the ADJGs are from one OSS (3G Network) to the same OSS (2G Network also), the
modifications should be to the 3G Cells.

XML Examples for both cases:
Scenario A:



Ultima Forte Required Data Inputs for Nokia Infrastructure
Schema Confidential & Proprietary February 2011 Page 43 of 61


Scenario B:
The XML Script of option b is the FP generated by Forte (Set_FP.xml).

2. Prepare the XML script with CM Operations Manager.

Important: Do NOT Provision yet! (Uncheck the Provision option), and click Start.
The Prepare Plan Option checks the plan and whether all the ADJx defined for the site are
actualized in the XML plan (if our plan will modify a parameter related to the ADJxs, the CM
will automatically add the XML code in the plan to update the ADJxs)
Ultima Forte Required Data Inputs for Nokia Infrastructure
Schema Confidential & Proprietary February 2011 Page 44 of 61
3. When the plan preparations are finished, open the plan with CM Editor to check if the ADJGs
are correct.

In the above example, the planned and actual values are identical because the plan was
already successfully provisioned. Repeat this step after the Plan Provision finalization to
check if the ADJGs were actualized correctly
Ultima Forte Required Data Inputs for Nokia Infrastructure
Schema Confidential & Proprietary February 2011 Page 45 of 61
4. Open the Plan with CM Editor to check if the ADJGs are ready to actualize.

Now you have the MO ADJGs in your plan.
5. For Scenario A, start the Provision. For Scenario B, if the FP has already been executed in
MML, uncheck the Entire Plan scope and check only the RNCs of your ADJGs. For both
Scenarios, there is no need to prepare the plans again.
