Our company specialized in radio telecommunication puts under
your disposition our skills and experiences concerning:
- Site verification radio parameters
- Drive test data
- Analysis and recommendations in order to optimize the
performance of our network
We perform testing for 2G and 3G networks (GSM/GPRS/EDGE/
UMTS/R99/HSDPA/HSUPA)
We use Nemo tools in drive test data

Site verification of radio parameters (1)
Hardware Checking
For each cell, we choose one location close the BTS. The target Cell
should be in the Light of Sight.
The following items should be checked approximately:
Antenna Azimuth
Antenna Tilt
Note: This test should be repeated for each Sector

Network Checking
For 2G Network Check, we could collect the information below using
an IDLE UE locked in 2G mode :
Frequency
BCCH
BSIC
Cell ID
LAC/RAC
For 3G Network Check, we may collect the information below using
an IDLE UE locked in 3G mode :
Frequency
Primary Scrambling Code
Cell ID
LAC/RAC

Network performance checking in static positions
For 2G Service Check, we could do the following tests using a UE
locked in 2G mode
Mobile originated calls, Mobile terminated calls, EDGE FTP
Download, EDGE FTP Upload
For 3G Service Check, we are able to do the following tests using a
UE locked in 3G mode
AMR originated call, AMR terminated call
R99 FTP download, R99 FTP Upload
HSDPA FTP download and HSUPA FTP Upload

For 2G Service Check, we use 2 UEs and one GPS in order to
execute the long and short calls tests.
For 3G Service Check, we use 2 UEs in order to execute the AMR
long and short calls and data transfer.
Note: the test should be made Clockwise and anti clockwise

Area Drive test verification
After site verification of radio parameters, it’s possible to perform Drive
test in global area in order to optimize the radio performance (detect
call drops, Handover Failures, Call set up Failures and resolve these
problems)
For 2G Service Check, the following tests will be considered:
2G Long and Short call
Automatic Long call (2G and 3G)
EDGE FTP Download
MOS
For 3G Service Check, the following tests will be considered:
3G short and Long call
R99 FTP download
HSDPA & HSUPA FTP transfer
MOS
