2 Key Features

Radio Trace (GSM, WCDMA, LTE, CDMA, WiFi) and Layer 3 decoding
The technology monitors (GSM, WCDMA, LTE, CDMA) change automatically when the network technology
changes. With a long click on the tab header of the technology monitors (channel, data, cell and coverage)
the display technology could be set manual. The WiFi monitor is displayed only by an active WiFi interface.

The layer 3 trace monitor is a list monitor that displays the header information of layer 3 messages. You can
disable protocol or message group items in the monitor settings. QualiPoc writes the layer 3 information to
the MF independent of the filter settings. The messages could be fully decoded and displayed in a pop-up
window. For closing the pop-up just double-click on the pop-up or press the back button.

IP Trace and PCAP (logging /decoding)


The IP trace monitor is a list monitor that displays header information from HTTP, FTP, DNS, ICMP, POP3,
IMAP, SMTP, RTSP, RTP, TLS and TCP packages. If you want, you can disable protocol items in the
monitor settings. Touch an item on the screen to view the decoded package. The logging of a PCAP file is
configurable in the job settings.

For an indoor map you can select the image in the gallery or through the file explorer. You can also change
the map during a measurement (dynamic map). For multi floor or multi building measurements either an
iBwave project (*.ibwc) or a collection of pictures (*.zip) could be loaded.
On both map monitors as default the signal strength is tracked and display. The values could be customized
by clicking on the position marker (outdoor map) or a long click on the indoor map.

Forcing (technology, band, preferred UARFCN)


You can force the technology and the bands that device should connect to. The list of available frequency
bands depends on the capabilities of the device. One some devices additional a preferred UARFCN forcing

CONFIDENTIAL MATERIALS
5 Good to Know
QualiPoc requires a valid licence key in the following location on the SD card:
/QualiPoc/Settings/<IMEI>.key
Android applications cannot access the SD card in USB mode. As a result, several QualiPoc
functions are unavailable in USB mode.
QualiPoc does not update WCDMA Cell ID in dedicated mode. Use a BTS list to update the Cell ID
in dedicated mode.
BTS lists must be in CSV format on the SD card. For each technology (GSM, WCDMA, LTE) a
separate CSV is needed. Each row in the CSV file corresponds to a cell and must have the following
format:
o GSM: Cell-Name,Technology,BCCH,BSIC,Lon,Lat,MCC,MNC,LAC,CellId,Direction
o WCDMA: Cell-Name,Technology,UARFCN,PSC,Lon,Lat,MCC,MNC,LAC,CellId,Direction
o LTE: Cell-Name,Technology,EARFCN,PhyCID,Lon,Lat,MCC,MNC,TAC,CellId,Direction
For MMS testing it is recommended to disable automatically retrieve of multimedia messages
(Android Messaging >> Settings).
The SwissQual firmware version could be checked in the about menu. Android firmware updates
from device manufactures are not allowed.
On Samsung Exynos based devices (GT-I9305, GT-N7105, ) the noise reduction (Call Settings
> Additional settings) has to be enabled to prevent audio gain issues.

Known Limitations
Remote Controlled: Communication to a HTTP/HTTPS server and communication over WLAN are
not supported.
By playing videos on Android 4.0.4 devices the frame around the video overlaps with the title bar.
In case of enabled Android Settings Do not keep activities under Settings/Developer
Options/Apps the QualiPoc application exits as soon as the QualiPoc settings are opened.
During call tests on Samsung Exynos based devices (GT-I9305, GT-N7105, ) no system
sounds where played
Some IP packet loss may occur @ throughputs > 50Mbps when PCAP file and ROMES logging are
enabled. The packet loss heavily depends on the current CPU load as well as on the temperature.
YouTube testing does not work with newest YouTube version (>= 5.0)
Map monitor on Samsung Galaxy SII has the following limitations:
- Overflow icon is almost not visible in landscape mode
- Zoom level for cached area cannot be changed (only Bing Map/Road provider)
- Go to location option does not work
OSM tiles downloaded with release 13.1.0 are no longer available with release 13.1.1.
