RNT_LTE_Dim

v2.3.4 Approved for RL10 / RL20 / RL30 / RL15TD / RL25TD


Provided by NWS LTE RA E2E Mgmt SA NetEng

General Info:

> Dimensioning tool comprises of three main parts presented as Link Budget, 'Cell
Capacity' and 'Site Count' sheets.
The tool is compliant with RL10, RL20, RL30 and RL15TD, RL25TD.
Remarks related to Link Budget:

> Modulation and Coding Scheme sets for DL and UL are compliant with Transport

Block Size selection procedure, which is based on the chosen MCS and cell-edge
user traffic requirement (Cell Edge User Throughput). Transport Block Sizes are
defined with respect to the Physical Resource Blocks covering 1 ms in time domain.
It can be assumed that Maximum MCS Throughput is determined by the percentage
of Physical Resource Blocks which are used for PDSCH/PUSCH transmission.

> In case of 'ERROR!' messages refer to the field description.


> Antenna scheme recommandation:

FDD scenarios shall be computed with up to 2Tx/2Rx antennas at eNB. MIMO mode
depends on the release (Closed Loop available from RL20). For TDD, it is allowed to
use beamforming schemes (LTBF for RL15TD and HBF from RL25TD).

> All releases support channel-aware scheduling (based on Proportional Fairness) in

DL. The FDPS gain values have been obtained using UPRISE system level simulator
for 10th percentile of SINR CDF distribution. UL channel-aware scheduler is
supported in all TD-LTE releases.

> Interference Margin value is calculated only for DL. UL results are based on system

level simulations. DL interference margin does not take into account intra-cell
interference (perfect orthogonality between users in the same cell). It is the function
of neighboring cell load, required SINR value and maximum SINR which can be
experienced by cell-edge users. In case of IRC feature activation, interference margin
is set to 0dB.

> The system overhead (control channels and physical layer signals) is modeled with

allowance for PDCCH (3 OFDM symbols per TTI are assumed to be occupied by
PDCCH), PBCH, DL synchronization signal, DL/UL reference signal, PUCCH,
PRACH, aperiodic CQI on PUSCH and ACK/NACKs on PUSCH.

> Combo boxes on top of link budget scenarios help to restore default values of all

input parameters. If you want to edit the default parameters set, open Defaults
sheet.
> Indoor cell ranges can be calculated using indoor specific propagation models which
are implemented just below Macro model part, starting from row 136.
Remarks related to 'Cell Capacity':

> The sheet is used to obtain the mean cell throughput based on system-level

simulations. The input figures impacting the calculations are listed on top of the
sheet.
Remarks related to 'Traffic Model:

> The sheet should be used if the user wants to specify traffic model figures impacting
the total data volume in busy hour. After first use of RNT_LTE_Dim, the sheet
contains several different traffic model formats which should be used as a basis for
further calculations. If it is needed, one single section (one traffic model format) can
be duplicated (copied at the end) and total data volume will be recalculated
automatically.

Remarks related to 'Site Count:


> The sheet allows to make a final site count computation based on traffic requirments
throughout several phases.
Remarks related to 'CCH Link Budget':

> The sheet allows to compute the link budget for all LTE relevant PHY control
channels for DL and UL. It should be treated as add-on to data link budget actually
proving that LTE control channels are robust enough to provide coverage not worse
than PDSCH and PUSCH.
Remarks related to 'Charts':

> Charts' sheet allows to run an automatic plot generation based on the selected link

budget scenario. Available plots: throughput vs pathloss/cell range and MCS


distribution for DL and UL.
Remarks related to 'VoIP':

> VoIP sheet includes the calculation of PHY layer payload for various VoIP codecs.
The data is used on "Link Budget" sheet when dimensioning voice service.
Remarks related to Defaults:

> Defaults sheet contains the default values which can be imported to 'Link Budget'
sheet.

Remarks related to Parameters:

> Parameters sheet contains key parameters which are relevant to air interface

dimensioning. Any changes to the sheet structure can cause calculation failures (only
experts).
Remarks related to 'NDR Annex':

> NDR Annex' offers a planner a handful summary of dimensioning parameters


gathered in one place ready to use for reports outside the tool.

Please activate add-ins before using the tool.

Office 2007 users who apply their own workarounds (e.g. xla/xll files swap) should recall
such changes. The tool can work with inbuilt Analysis ToolPak library.
2)
Office 2007 without SP2 (or with SP1 only) may generate wrong results. Besides, most of
automation mechanisms (i.e. MCS optimization) do not work properly unless SP2 is installed.

The symptom that it doesn't work,
is usually MCS28 in the field. In this
case, one should choose the MCS
manuallly to obtain highest MAPL.
MCS optimization is run whenever
you change one of the following
parameters:
- Channel Bandwidth
- Service Type is changed to AMR
- Cell Edge Throughput
Requirement
- VoIP Packet L2 Segmentation
Order
- BLER / Number of Transmissions
- Channel Model
- DL/UL Resource Block Group Size
(field hidden)
- Antenna Configuration
- FDPS Type
You can disable all automation
mechanisms on Link Budget
worksheet by typing NOHELP in
field E5 (notepad field for
Scenario1). Note that ALL (not only
MCS optimization) functions
helping to achieve best cell range
will be disabled for ALL link budget
scenarios(!). You won't be able to

IMPORTANT!
Please check whether MCS
optimization works properly and MCS
is adjusted after link budget changes.
The symptom that it doesn't work, is
usually MCS28 in the field. In this
case, one should choose the MCS
manuallly to obtain highest MAPL.

It may happen that for very low data rate (e.g. 64kbps, 128kbps)
the MAPL will be lower than for higher data rate. This is usually
caused by the turbo-coding efficiency degradation in case of
allocating small amount of user data. The effect is reflected in
SINR requirement. It is visible because the power is equally
shared among all available PRBs and cannot be focused on

Uplink MCS

It may happen that there is no path loss for high MCS range.
This is usually caused by the very increase of interference
margin in case of higher and higher SINR requirement.
It does not mean however that "unplotted" MCSs will not be
used in the cell at all. They will be, but close to the eNB and not
at the cell-edge. Interference margin formula does not reflect
cell center environment and for this reason it is impossible to
dimension the cell with very high MCSs at the cell edge. Anyway
it would be unrealistic.

Hint: The figures listed in the table reflect the Flexi System Module de

admission control. The reason is that, as long as DRX is not supported
RL30), such high 'maximum no. of active UE' values would consume fa
PUCCH (for scheduling request, CQI, HARQ ACK etc.). Typicaly value
admission control would therefore be ~100..120 (irrespective of the ba
