1 Introduction
1.1 Purpose
This document is intended to define UTRAN Key Performance Indicators, which give
information about quality, performance, load, capacity, .. in a uniform way to the
operator.
These indicators may be used for the following purposes:
Definition of formulas, which are used for realization of predefined reports in the PM+
application of the O&M Toolset (i.e. SPOTS),
1.2 Definition of terms
Each KPI will be described by the following fields:

Long name
This field contains the name of the described KPI.

Short name
This field contains an acronym for the described KPI

Description
This field contains a short explanation of the KPI.

Formula
This field contains the formula for calculation of the KPI.

Counters
This field contains the counters used for calculation of the KPI. Counters are
described by the shortname of the measurement and, in brackets, the index of the
used counter. The indices are listed with the following meaning:
- measType[i] Counter with index #i is used
- measType[i,j,k] Counters with indices #i, #j, #k are summarized
- measType[i-j] Counters in the index range #i to #j are summarized
- measType[all] All counters of the measurement are summarized
- measType[i][j] Counter related to index #i with sub-counters index #j are
used. E.g. index[j] related to CS defined with index #i

Note: An Index is represented by x,y,z, where x represents the protocol type, y
represents the cause categorization and z represents the cause value (see [2]. If
specific indices are listed, only the cause values are listed.

Elementary object
This field contains the measured object class the KPI is applicable to. For UMR2.0,
this field will only contain the objects “RNC”, “cell”, “adjacent cell relation”, “adjacent
GERAN cell relation”.

Unit/Range
This field contains unit and/or range related to the KPI, e.g. percent.

Remark
This field contains additional information.
1.3 General Principles
(n-1) out of n approach
Measurements can be split in 3 sub-measurements – number of attempts, number of
successes and number of failures – where any of the three measurements can be
calculated from the two others.

# of Success + # of Failures = # of Attempts
SuccessRate + FailureRate = 100%
SuccessRate + FailureRate + DropRate = 100%

For procedure related KPI analysis it will be defined the Success Rate and the Failure
Rate if possible. In case of Hard handover or Inter-System handover a drop rate is
added which indicates a failed handover procedure with the consequence that the
connection is lost.
According the formulas depicted above, one of the rates could be calculated if the
other value(s) are known. However, since the measurement recording within the
network entities may be out of balance due to failed counting or in case attempts and
successful/failed cases are counted within different granularity periods, the adding of
the indicated rates may not be exactly 100% in all cases. It will be therefore indicated
all rate cases within the document to be able to make a double check of the counters.


Cause relations
For determination of per-cause values the following rules shall apply:

] [ #
] [ #
] [
InitCause ofAttempts
InitCause ofSucc
InitCause e SuccessRat =

] [ #
] [ #
] [
AllCauses ofAttempts
se FailureCau ofFailures
se FailureCau e FailureRat =

In case of the Success Rate per init cause, the number of success is related to the
number of attempts, where in both terms the init cause shall apply.
In case of the Failure Rate per dedicated failure cause, the number of failures is
related to the number of attempts, where the dedicated failure cause is related to all
causes of the attempts.

The difference of these calculation rules is based on the target group that evaluates
the KPI.
The success rates of a procedure refers mainly to Network Planning / Network
Optimization groups where the success rate related to the dedicated initialization
cause is focused. Thus, e.g. the success rate of the RAB establishment for each QoS
class may be depicted in a diagram as follows:

82%
84%
86%
88%
90%
92%
94%
Convers. Streaming Interactive Background
Success Rate

Fig. 1.1 Success rates of QoS classes

The dedicated FailureRates of a procedure is mainly used for Troubleshooting. Within
this KPI document the definition the ratios of the individual failure causes are depicted
related to all attempts. All failure rates per cause added up result in the total failure
rate. Of course the indication of the failure rate per initial cause would be
advantageous, but this is not possible. In case a failure occur the context of the
initialization cause would have to be created which results in a lot of effort and a
higher number of measurement counters since for each initialization cause the failure
cause has to be stored separately.


Granularity Period
Within this document it is assumed that the KPI is applicable for the same granularity
period as defined for the measurements that are utilized within the formulas. Thus, no
recommendation is given related to the GP of the KPI. However, the measurements
used within one formula may have been activated within separate scanners where
different GPs may have been activated. In such a case the O&M Toolset shall
consider the different GPs and aggregate the measurements with the lower GPs until
the same GP for all measurements apply.

Call versus Connection
Within this document KPIs will be defined analyzing calls and analyzing connections.
In our approach calls will be analyzed if a RAB establishment/release is involved.
Thus, a call is not related only to a voice connection but also to PS connections.
If in the concerned measurements it cannot be distinguished if a RAB is involved or
not, e.g. within the iuRelReq counter, then the behavior of connections will be
analyzed. I.e. the connection may be related to a “call” or to signaling only due to SMS
transmission or due to Location updates.

2 Call/Connection Analysis
2.1 Call Establishments
General assumption:
In reference to 3GPP TS 25.931, a call setup will be described by the concatenation of
the phases
1. RRC connection establishment (cf. 3GPP TR25.931, chapter 7.3)
-> covered by measurements rrcEstabAtt, rrcEstabSucc, rrcEstabFail
2. NAS signaling connection establishment (cf. 3GPP TR25.931, chapter 7.2)
-> pure pass-through of Initial Direct Transfer message; success rate=100%
assumed
3. RAB establishment (cf. 3GPP TR25.931, chapter 7.6)
-> covered by measurements rabEstabAtt, rabEstabSucc, rabEstabFail

Remark, that these phases refer to the UE in IDLE mode, but it is possible to have
several RAB establishments in the same RRC connection.

2.1.1 Call setup success rate
Remark, that for the indicated success rate only UTRAN failures are taken into
account. In case the Core Network rejects the establishment request from the UE due
to internal checks, UTRAN is not able to know the failed NAS procedure.

Remark, in UMR2.0 following RAB establishment causes are not supported:
1-0 CS streaming
2-0 CS interactive
3-0 CS background
0-1 PS conversational
1-1 PS streaming


Long name a) Call setup success rate (Access probability)
b) User setup success rate (Access probability)
c) User setup success rate (multi RAB assignment)
Short name a) CSSR(AccessProbability)
b) USSR(AccessProbability)
c) USSR(multiRAB)
Description This KPI describes the ratio of successful call establishments related to attempts of
procedures involved considering success rate of RRC - and RAB – Establishment.

Remark The main difference between call setup and user setup success rate is that with the
USSR only the failures due to congestion are supposed to impact the access
probability in the user perspective.

2.2.2 UTRAN originated release analysis
“Connection release analysis UTRAN originated ” refers only to un-normal releases
UTRAN originated i.e. existing connections have been lost at UTRAN side. KPIs in
this subsection analyze the connection drop rates by means of release indication
toward the CN and the RRC connection drop rate.

2.2.2.1 Connection Drop Analysis
The un-normal release of a connection UTRAN originated is indicated either by the
RAB RELEASE REQUEST message or the IU RELEASE REQUEST message
transmitted from the RNC to the CN. The RAB RELEASE REQUEST message will be
used when the failure occurs in the RAB management as e.g. “firmware failure PRLC,
DHT,..”. In any case the UE is still reachable via a RRC connection. The IU RELEASE
REQUEST message is used in case the UE is lost at the air interface. The CN will
response either with the RANAP message RAB ASSIGNMENT REQUEST indicating
the RAB to be released if another parallel transaction is still ongoing or with the IU
RELEASE COMMAND message.

For evaluation of the connection drop rates following aspects have to be considered
impacting the KPI result:
• If the dropped connection was related to a call or to a signaling connection, which
was established for registration or signaling, cannot be distinguished. I.e. service
related call drops, which are intentionally preferred to measure, cannot be
distinguished from RRC connections dropped by UTRAN.
• In case the transmitted RAB RELEASE REQUEST message from the RNC to the
CN will be acknowledged by the RAB ASSIGNMENT REQUEST message from
the CN because a parallel transaction is still running, the rabRel counter in
UMR2.0 will count the same event twice.
• In case that the established connection is in Softer/Soft handover when the
connection loss occur and the RNC transmits the RAB RELEASE REQUEST
message the rabRel counter will be incremented in all cells of existing radio links.
Thus, including the rabRel counter in the drop rate calculation means that the drop
rate is calculated depending the existing radio links and not per RAB
establishments.

As a consequence of the falsification by the rabRel counter, the rabRel counter
is not considered for the drop analysis toward the CN. Thus, the calculated drop
rate is not quite correct but the drops caused from internal RNC failures should
be much less compared to the loss of the UE.

Remark In a normal sequence first the RAB will be established and later on the outgoing

This applies especially in case of PS calls. The mean number of outgoing relocations
per call should therefore be considered in a greater period, e.g. per day.

per call should therefore be considered in a greater period, e.g. per day.
In addition it should be considered that by a previous Soft Handover the originating cell
of the hard handover may not be the cell where the RAB establishment has been
performed and measured. Therefore the Outgoing Hard Handover per call rate should
is related to the RNC instead to a cell.

In a normal sequence first the RAB will be established and later on the inter system
hard handover may occur. Thus, it may occur that the RAB establishment may be
measured within an earlier GP than the outgoing inter system handover procedure is

In addition it should be considered that by a previous Soft Handover the originating
