2 NEW FEATURES

2.1

Nemo Fast File Loader


In this GA release we introduce a new option to be used with Nemo log files collected with
Nemo collection tools. It is beneficial to use Nemo Fast Loader option to process Nemo log
files if you have small or medium size log files. Also if you have computer with up to four
processor you get real advantage in processing speed when using the Nemo Fast Loader
option. For large size log files having multiple devices with eight or higher core computers
the regular Windcatcher processing is recommended to be used.
You can select the Nemo Fast Loader from Processing Default settings under the Home
Tab.

From Processing default Configuration window select the Vendor Specific menu and then
from Nemo options select the Use Nemo Fast Loader.

Note: For Nemo Fast Loader SQLite data processing required.


Note: Nemo Fast Loader is based on Nemo Vendor Events so any analytics
related to the events from L3 signalling is not available in Nemo Fast Loader.
Note: Geobinning as a binning option is not supported with Nemo Fast Loader

For Nemo Fast Loader there are Nemo specific report templates available (based on Nemo Events):

Parameter tree
In this release a new way of selecting
metrics and events are introduced. When
you process a new data set or open an
existing dataset there is a parameter tree
window on the left hand side of the work
space.
You can select the wanted metric and/or
event from the parameter tree and just
drag and drop them onto map, table or
time chart view.

Page 7

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

The metrics/events dropped on the map view


are marked
with the symbol. The
metric/event can be un-selected by clicking
that symbol.
By clicking the Clear All on top corner of the
parameter tree window you can un-select all
the metrics from the Map view.

Plotting of events on the map follows the same


principle. Just select the event(s) and drag and
drop them. Deleting of the events can be done
same way as with metrics they can be
deleted one-by-one or all at the same time.

Page 8

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

The visibility of the metrics on the


map view can be controlled either by
Layer Control or by using Metrics
Offset functionality in the Map Tools
menu.

From the Time Series Chart the metrics


and events can be removed from the
Chart option menu.

There is also search function included in the


parameter tree. The search word can be
written to the search window and the
matching metrics/events will be shown and
highlighted on-the-fly.
You can return to the main level of the
parameter tree by clicking the Clear tab.
By clicking the Clear All on top corner of the
parameter tree window you can un-select all
the metrics from the Map view.

Note: In this release metrics can still be selected also traditionally from the menus for
the Map view, for the Time Series Chart and for the Data Table view. It is highly
recommended that you select the metrics and/or events either from the parameter tree
or from the traditional metric/event menus.

2.3

Failure Analysis Dashboard


In this release we are introducing a new dash board view for the failure analysis.
With this feature user can analyze failure events for GSM, UMTS and LTE/VoLTE
occurring in serving sectors. There are three categories - Accesibility, Retainability
and Mobility for witch the analysis can be done. You can select device for the
analysis and also if you want to do it for data or voice calls. In addition to the failure
analysis based on the events, with this feature you can do an antenna orientation
and overshooting analysis. For orientation and overshooting analysis you need to
have the cell site information available.
The Failure Analysis dashboard can be opened
from the Failure Analysis tab located on the
side bar in the left hand side of the window.
The Failure Analysis dashboard opens in a
summary view showing the count of failures
for Accessibility, Retainability, Mobility.
For the orientation the summary view shows
the number of sectors for which there are
more than 75% of the samples outside of the
180 degree beam width. For the overshooting
you can see from the summary view the
number of the sectors for which there are
more than 90% of the samples further than
the pre-defined sector distance.
For the deeper analysis just click one of the
icons of the categories you want to analyse.

If you select for example Retainability category, there is a pie chart for the root causes
and a pie chart for the sectors that has been affected by any of the root causes shown in
the root cause pie chart.
In addition to the pie charts you will see the map and event analysis grid as well as
before and after RF analysis grid. The Event Analysis Grid & RF Analysis grids works in
sync with the failure analysis.

Page 10

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

You can now further analyse one of the root causes by clicking on top of the root cause
wedge. The selected wedge for that root cause gets bit loose from the pie chart and now
you can see the effected sectors for that root cause as well as the event and RF analysis
grids.

You can do similar, more detailed analysis also for the antenna orientation and for the
overshooting.

Page 11

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

The failure analysis can be used also for analysing VoLTE events. If you have VoLTE data
you need to select 4G as a technology and Voice as a service.

Accesibilty

For the orientation analysis you see first the


pie chart indicating the number of sectors for
which there are certain percentage of the
samples outside of the 180 degree antenna
beam width.
By further clicking the wanted percentage
wedge you can see the affected sectors in the
second pie chart and the pilot analysis grid for
more detailed analysis.
For the overshooting analysis you can follow
similar procedure.

Page 13

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

2.5

Raw message binning


The support of the raw data level binning for the SwissQual log data has been added to
this release. You can select the raw data level binning for LTE metrics and for the selected
set of GSM and UMTS metrics. The selection of the KPIs for the raw data level binning
must be done before processing the data from the Attribute Manager under the Tools
tab.

After processing the data you can select the KPIs from the Map tab menu.

2.6

Report Builder update


In Nemo WindCatcher release 3.5.5.9 a new report builder feature was introduced as a
beta version. In this release we introduce the updated, commercial version of it. Basic
functionalities are the same as in the previous releases but there are some new features
added and the usability has been improved.
With this feature it is possible to create custom reports by dragging and dropping the
metrics, events and map plots to empty excel template. The template can be saved to be
used to generate customized reports.

2.6.1

Opening the Custom Report designer


Under the Reports tab there is a new icon to open the Report Designer window to create
the Custom Report:

Following window should now open:

Page 15

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

2.6.2

Selecting the metrics


In the left hand side of the Report Designer window there are menus for Metrics and for
Events. The menus can be expanded from the +tab to get the technology specific
menus for metrics and events.

By further expanding you can get the actual metrics and events visible to select the ones
to be used in the report template.

Page 16

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

Now you can just drag and drop the wanted metric to the template. You can select
multiple metrics with the different metric type to the same template.
After you have selected the metric or event you must complete the metric and device
settings. After dropping the Metric to one of the cells the settings window will appear to
the right-hand side of the window
You need to select the data set and device from the
Device Database or from Label or from ID scroll-down
menus. After doing that the data base, device ID and
the device label will be shown in the menu windows

Page 17

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

You also need to select the type of the metric to be shown in the report. The selection can
be made from the Metric type drill-down menu. There are totally 14 different types to
select:

Average,
Count (Number of samples)
Sum
Minimum
Maximum
Standard deviation
Mode
Median
Histogram
Multimetric
Value
All value
List

With the multimetric option you can select the multiple simultaneous metrics to be shown
side by side in the worksheet. For the selected metric the record_index, phone_id,
latitude, longitude, and time are populated from the bin_data table in the database. When
using the multimetric type, it must be selected for the first metric dragged to the
worksheet and the rest of the metrics can be dragged and dropped onto any of the cells
in the multimetric row.

When adding metrics for the multimetric view the


added metrics are also shown in the Metric setting
menu in the right hand side of the window. The first
selected metric is the most upper one in the window
and the added ones can be seen in Multiple Metrics
window.

Page 18

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

If you want to plot the Histogram for the selected metric


you must give the highest value, lowest value and the step
size into the metric setting menu. You cannot proceed with
the histogram if you havent given those as an input. After
selecting the data set / device for the histogram the
Histogram setting menu is shown and the inputs can be
given.

With Histogram it is also possible to show the distribution


of the values as a pie chart. After giving the values for Max, Min and Step you need to
click Preview and then the pie chart icon at the top of the Metric setting menu.

Pie chart should now be visible and it can be re-sized or re-located for the report
template.
If the Value is selected as a metric type, all the metric values with the actual
measurement data in a bin are shown whereas with AllValue selected also the bin
values with the default value are shown in the case that the bin does not have actual
measurement value.

2.6.3

Inserting a map to the report template


You can insert also the map plots for selected metrics and events to the template. After
dragging and dropping the metric or event you need to click the Map icon on the top of
the Metric setting pane and the place holder for the map and the expanded metric menu
are shown with some additional map settings. Just like with the regular metric plotting
the data set / device selection is needed for the map plots.

Page 19

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

For the map plot you need to select the threshold to get the correct legend with the predefind thresholds .Open the drill down menu for the thresholds and select the one for the
selected metric (RSRP in this example).

You can change the location of the map plot in the template by first clicking on the
Location field in the Metric setting menu and then clicking the new cell location on the
work sheet. You can also re-size the map plot area. Again, first click on the Location
field in the Metric setting menu. Then select the cell where the metric is and paint the
wanted cells to get the wanted size.

Page 20

NEMO WINDCATCHER DRIVE TEST RELEASE NOTES

2.6.4

Conditions
For the metrics and map plots there are pre-defined conditions to be used if you want see
only some range of the metrics. Open the Condition drill-down menu, select the wanted
condition(s) and set the values.

If there is a need for additional conditions needed customer can create also own
conditions.

2.6.5

Saving the report template and running the report


During the creation of the report template, before saving it, it
is possible to use the Preview functionality to check the
report template. You can either preview just one metric or plot
at the time or you can preview all items you have inserted to
the template.
To save the template just click the icon, browse the location
and give the name to the template.
Running the report follows the same procedure used with the
predefined standard report templates go to reports, open
custom report and run it.

Note: If this custom template is used to create the report for some other dataset
you must re-select the devices for each of the metrics or maps in the template.
This must be done in order to link the template to correct dataset.
