Chapter 1. Introduction

1. Introduction

Welcome to TEMS Pocket.


TEMS Pocket is an advanced cellular network diagnostics tool built into a
Sony Ericsson or Nokia phone. TEMS Pocket is suitable for day-to-day
verification, maintenance and troubleshooting of cellular networks but is also
handy for many cell planning tasks.
This document describes TEMS Pocket 7.2 (product packages Professional
and Premium) as implemented in the Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE phone. A
separate manual is provided for the Sony Ericsson W995 and W995a phones
which support both GSM and WCDMA.

1.1. What’s New in TEMS Pocket 7.2


TEMS Pocket 7.2 is a Sony Ericsson based release, the successor to TEMS
Pocket 7.0. (TEMS Pocket 7.1 is a Nokia-based release.)

1.1.1. New GSM Phone: Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE


TEMS Pocket 7.2 is also available on the GSM-only version of the W995
phone, which is called Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE. Key features are:
• GSM/GPRS quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
• EDGE Class 10
• 8.1 megapixel camera
• Integrated GPS

1.1.2. New GPS


The GPS that can optionally be ordered with TEMS Pocket 7.2 is the
GlobalSat BT-359.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 1


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

1.2. What Was New in TEMS Pocket 7.0

1.2.1. New Phones: Sony Ericsson C905, C905a


TEMS Pocket 7.0 is implemented on the Sony Ericsson C905 and C905a
phones. Their features include:
• GSM/GPRS quad-band
• 8.1 megapixel camera
• Integrated GPS

1.2.2. Map View and Pinpointing


The map view was the principal new feature in TEMS Pocket 7.0. It allows
users to pinpoint their route through a building on a floor plan. The setup is
fast and easy:
• Obtain an image of the floor plan. For example, use the camera in the
TEMS Pocket phone to take a photo of the emergency/evacuation plan
displayed in the building.
• Load the picture as a background image in the Map view.
• Start pinpointing your position in the building. A logfile will be opened
automatically. Pinpoint at regular intervals along the route and whenever
you change direction.
• When you are done with the measurement, give a “Stop pinpointing”
command. The logfile will close.
This is the full list of steps required to use the TEMS Pocket Map view. No
messy or time-consuming preparations have been left out: none are needed.
Before post-processing the data, it just needs to be anchored to a
geographical position. This is accomplished in a tick with a software utility
accompanying TEMS Pocket. The logfiles are then ready to be loaded into
TEMS Presentation or TEMS Investigation.
The map functionality is available as an option in the Professional package.

1.2.3. Data Views with Graphs


TEMS Pocket 7.0 comes equipped with a set of graph views showing how
radio parameters vary over time. These line charts were an entirely new

2
Chapter 1. Introduction

feature in TEMS Pocket 7.0, but they are similar to the ones found in TEMS
Investigation and TEMS Presentation. All graphs come predefined and ready
to use without any need for configuration.

1.2.4. Smarter Logfile Upload


The data upload process was improved: If the FTP connection goes down,
the upload of a logfile can optionally be resumed from where it was
interrupted instead of being restarted from the beginning. The new procedure
cuts upload times and saves phone battery life, enhancing the efficiency and
power of the tool.

1.2.5. Cell Id Presentation


Cell Identity data is presented in both idle and dedicated mode. This is
achieved by buffering Cell Identities in idle mode and then correlating the
buffered data with the phone’s position in dedicated/connected mode. The
buffer is cleared when the phone is restarted.

1.2.6. Snapshots of Data Views


A display snapshot function was added which enables you to capture TEMS
Pocket data views in the form of bitmap images. The snapshot function is
perfect for instantly capturing your own user’s view of the network. It can also
be used to produce receipts handed in by staff to confirm completion of field
measurement tasks. This too contributes to efficiency and reduces traveling
expenses.

1.2.7. Importing and Exporting TEMS Pocket Settings


More aspects of user configuration in TEMS Pocket can be saved to file:
command sequence setups, user-configured map views, and more. Each
setup is saved in a separate file which can be imported into the application on
a later occasion. This functionality permits convenient distribution of test
setups to multiple TEMS Pocket units.

2. Overview of TEMS Pocket

2.1. Data Views


Most of the data displayed by TEMS Pocket is to be found in data views.
When you turn the phone on for the first time, it will display the PDP Context
data view:

On later occasions, when turned on, the phone will display the data view last
inspected, provided that the TEMS Pocket operational mode is set to Active
(see section 7.1).
The data views are divided into categories from 1 to 4. Each data view is
numbered according to the format “x.y”, where “x” is the category and “y” the
position of the data view within that category. You browse the categories by
moving the navigation key left and right, and the data views within a category
by moving the navigation key up and down. TEMS Pocket remembers the
view last displayed in each category; when you return to a category, that view
is shown.
The top section of the display preserves the ordinary signal strength and
battery power level indicators as well as other symbols belonging to the
regular user interface of the phone.
The top section of the display also shows:
• a symbol indicating that a logfile is being recorded (see section 7.3)

4
Chapter 2. Overview of TEMS Pocket

• a symbol indicating that a logfile is being replayed, and the status of the
replay (see section 7.4.2)
• a symbol indicating that a cell control function is currently applied (see
section 8.2)
• an icon for the latest TEMS Pocket event that occurred (if it occurred
within the last 15 minutes; see section 8.3.4)
If the default phone display with the operator name appears instead of a
TEMS Pocket data view, this is because TEMS Pocket has been put in
background or inactive mode (see section 7.1). By default TEMS Pocket is in
active mode, and all of its data views are visible.
The data views are exhaustively described in chapter 3.

2.1.1. Data Views with Graphs


Data views with graphs combine text-format content (similar to that of
ordinary data views) with a line chart showing how one or several parameters
vary over time. Like the text-only data views, the graph views are predefined.
They are collected in category 4.
The top section of the display has precisely the same layout and behavior as
in text-only data views. See section 2.1.

2.2. Map View


The Map view (no. 1.6) is used for pinpointing a test route on a floor plan or
other map image. See section 2.5.3.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 5


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

2.3. Menus
When you press the Activity key on the phone, a tab with TEMS Pocket
commands appears on top in the Activity menu:

Most of the commands in this menu are found only here. The menu is gone
through in chapter 7.
From the Activity menu you can also access the Pocket menu, which is the
chief means of configuring TEMS Pocket: see chapter 8. The Pocket menu
can alternatively be accessed from the phone’s main menu: Settings →
General → Pocket menu.

Note: TEMS Pocket settings are always saved in the phone’s internal
memory. If the phone memory is full, TEMS Pocket settings can
no longer be saved. You then need to remove some files to free
up memory.

6
Chapter 2. Overview of TEMS Pocket

2.4. Events
Events are generated and logged by TEMS Pocket to indicate that something
interesting and worthy of note has occurred in the phone’s interaction with the
cellular network.
The event log is inspected and managed from the Pocket menu. See section
8.3.1. A shortcut to the event log is found in the Activity menu.

2.5. Logfiles

2.5.1. Logfile Recording


You can record data collected by TEMS Pocket in logfiles and replay these
files in TEMS Pocket itself or in TEMS Investigation or TEMS Presentation.
See sections 7.3, 7.4, and 8.7.

2.5.2. GPS Positioning


TEMS Pocket supports positioning of data using GPS. You can use either the
phone’s internal GPS or an external GPS unit that has been Bluetooth paired
with the phone. See section 8.5.

2.5.3. Positioning by Pinpointing


In an indoor environment or other location without GPS coverage, you can
use the Map view (see section 2.2) to pinpoint your test route. You load an
image of your testing area into the Map view, then indicate your route by
marking waypoints on that map. The map image can also be assigned a
geographical position. For the full details on these procedures, see chapter 6.

2.6. Cell Control Functions


TEMS Pocket has a number of cell control functions for controlling the
phone’s behavior in the cellular network. These include locking the phone to a
band, cell, or channel. See section 8.2 for full details.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 7


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

2.7. Command Sequence


TEMS Pocket offers the use of a command sequence for automated testing
of various services. See section 8.8.

2.8. Storage Medium: Phone Memory vs. Memory


Stick
In general it is recommendable to use a memory stick rather than the phone’s
internal memory as storage medium (for logfiles, FTP downloads, etc.). This
is because the internal memory of the Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE is fairly
small. The memory stick is the default choice in all dialogs where a storage
medium needs to be selected.

2.9. Language Support


TEMS Pocket Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE phones support languages as
follows:
• Regular phone user interface: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin, simplified
characters), Danish, English, French, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish
• Pocket user interface
– Text display: English
– User input: English

3. Data Views: General

3.1. General Data View Properties


All data views have the same general structure in idle mode and dedicated/
active mode.
Whenever a parameter is currently not valid, this is indicated in the data view
by a dash “–” or a string of dashes.
Certain parameters are presented both numerically and graphically, the
number appearing on top of a colored bar whose length and color depend on
the parameter value. These parameters are tagged “numeric/graphic” in
chapters 4 and 5. The rules for the graphic presentation are found in
appendix B, page 105.
In the case of frequency hopping, the hopping list is shown one channel at a
time, a new channel appearing every second.

3.2. The Built-in Help Function


If you press Options and select “Toggle help”, a callout box appears
describing the piece of data in the top left corner of the screen. Use the
navigation key to navigate the contents of the data view.

• To turn off the help function, press the “C” key. Alternatively, press Options
and choose Toggle help again.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 9


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

3.3. The Capture Function


You can take screenshots of any data view. To do this, you must first turn the
screen capture function on (while in a data view) by selecting Options →
Toggle capture.
Whenever the phone is in standby mode or during a voice call, you can now
take a screenshot by pressing the Capture button. Please note that
screenshots are always stored on the memory card (under Other\Pocket\
Capture), so the phone must have one inserted.
A shutter sound is played when the screenshot is taken. Image files are
named DV<X>-<Y>_<N>.bmp, where <X>-<Y> represent the data view
number and <N> is a counter starting at 1. Up to 1000 screenshots of each
data view can be stored.

3.4. Other Data View Actions


In some data views you can perform an action relating to a piece of data
shown in the view. For example, in data views listing cells, you can lock on
one of the cells.
All data view actions are performed by pressing the Options button and
choosing Data view actions. A submenu appears listing the available actions.

Specifics on data view actions are found in the subsequent sections.

Chapter 6. The Map View

6. The Map View

The Map view enables recording of positions for measurements in indoor


locations and other places where GPS coverage is not available. The
positioning is done by pinpointing the test route in the Map view.
Note that in order to use the pinpointing function, you must have a memory
card with sufficient free space installed on the phone. This is because all
logfile-related data is copied to the memory card in connection with creating
the zip archive. (Other methods of recording a logfile do not require a memory
card.)

6.1. Loading a Map Image into the Map View


• First you need to obtain an image of the environment that is going to be
covered during measurement. For example, use the phone’s camera to
photograph the emergency or evacuation plan for the relevant floor. The
best image quality is obtained if the camera is set in black-and-white
mode. Also avoid using the flash. If you are using an image from a
different source, it must be in JPEG format.
• Load your image as a background image in the Map view: While in this
view, press Options and select Data view actions → Load map. Locate
the file you want to load, and press Select.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 43


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

The image now appears in the Map view:

6.2. Pinpointing Your Test Route

6.2.1. Setting the Map Zoom


You can start pinpointing as soon as the map is loaded. However, before
getting started on your test route, it is a good idea to adjust the zoom level of
the Map view so that the pinpointing actions can be performed conveniently.
• In the Map view, press Options and select Data view actions → Map
properties → Zoom. Set the zoom level as appropriate.

6.2.2. Customizing the Appearance of Route Markers


The waypoints that you mark on the map will always be colored blue.
The markers tracing your route between waypoints will by default be color-
coded according to RxLev. The color coding is explained in appendix B, page
105. You can change to a different parameter as follows:

44
Chapter 6. The Map View

• Press Options and select Data view actions → Value element.

• Select the desired parameter.


(“RLC DL”/“RLC UL” means RLC/MAC throughput.
“Rssi”, “RSCP”, and “Ec/N0” are to be ignored.)

6.2.3. Entering Map Properties


You can set some text attributes for the map image. The purpose of supplying
this information is to enable geographical positioning of the map image using
the TEMS Pocket Positioning Tool: see section 6.3.
• Press Options and select Data view actions → Map properties.

• Latitude, Longitude: Enter the coordinates of


the top left corner of the map image.
• Address, Building, Floor: Enter the relevant
information.

The parameters are written to an XML file; see section 6.2.4.

6.2.4. Pinpointing and Recording


• To initiate a measurement, press Options and select Data view actions →
Start pinpointing. A crosshair symbol becomes visible, and a logfile is
opened automatically. The fact that the pinpointing is in progress is
indicated by an icon at the top of the display.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 45


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

• To pinpoint a spot on the map, move the crosshairs to the desired


position, then press the Select button.

Note: The screen capture function must be turned off, otherwise the
right soft button will be labeled Capture instead.

• Continue pinpointing at regular intervals along the route, and whenever


you change direction. Consecutive waypoints are automatically
connected by route markers.

• When you are done with the measurement, press Options and select Data
view actions → Stop pinpointing.

46
Chapter 6. The Map View

The logfile closes, and the pinpointing icon disappears.


A zip archive is now created holding:
• the logfile (*.log)
• the image loaded into the Map view (*.jpg)
• a file where the pinpointed route is recorded (*.ppf)
• the map properties covered in section 6.2.3 (*.xml)
• an index file detailing the archive contents (.xml).
Please note that such zip archives cannot be replayed as-is in TEMS Pocket.
(They resemble ordinary logfiles in the phone file system, since the phone
does not show file extensions.)

6.3. Positioning the Map Geographically


The description of the test route furnished by pinpointing can be utilized when
viewing TEMS Pocket logfiles in other TEMS tools such as TEMS
Investigation and TEMS Presentation.
Before post-processing the data, however, it needs to be anchored to a
geographical position. This is accomplished by processing the zip archive
with a software utility called TEMS Pocket Positioning Tool, which is installed
along with TEMS Investigation as well as TEMS Presentation. It is launched
from the Start menu by selecting Programs → Ascom → TEMS Products →
Utilities → TEMS Pocket Positioning Tool. For further details on this topic,
consult the TEMS Pocket Positioning Tool User’s Manual.
The intended way of working is to position the map using the coordinates
provided in the map properties in TEMS Pocket: see section 6.2.3.
After being positioned, the logfiles are ready to be loaded into TEMS
Investigation or TEMS Presentation.

7. TEMS Pocket Functions in the


Activity Menu

A number of TEMS Pocket functions are accessed by pressing the Activity


key. This is the button labeled .
Note that many of these functions are found only in the Activity menu and not
among the submenus of the Pocket menu. They are placed here to be
conveniently accessible regardless of what TEMS Pocket functions or other
phone functions you are using.

7.1. Operational Mode


Active: All TEMS Pocket functions are active.
Background: No data views are displayed, but all
other TEMS Pocket functions are active.
Inactive: No TEMS Pocket functions are active.

7.2. Insert Filemark


This command inserts filemarks (text strings) in a logfile while it is being
recorded. You can use filemarks to tag segments of special interest in the
logfile. For example, you might want to note down the location where
something particular happened (helpful if you are not using a GPS of any
kind).
On selecting this command you are prompted to type the filemark text. It may
consist of up to 127 characters.
This command is available only while logfile recording is in progress.

7.3. Start/Stop Logfile Recording


This command is used for manual recording of TEMS Pocket logfiles. (Logfile
recording can also be automated, using a variety of trigger conditions. This is
done from the Logfiles menu; see section 8.7.2. Regarding logfile recording
by pinpointing, see section 6.2.)
You can insert filemarks in a logfile during recording; see section 7.2.
If the memory on the storage medium used for logfiles is running low (only
1 MB left), or if some error occurs, the recording is stopped. You are then
notified by a message in the display.
Refer to section 8.7 for all remaining details on logfile recording and handling.
During logfile replay this command is not available.

7.3.1. Icons Used for Logfile Recording

While a logfile is being recorded, this icon is shown on the status bar at
the top of the display.

7.4. Start/Stop Logfile Replay


This command is used to start and stop replay TEMS Pocket logfiles in TEMS
Pocket itself. Note that you can also replay the logfiles in TEMS Investigation
and TEMS Presentation and make use of the powerful presentation facilities
in these tools.
On giving this command you are taken to the file system of the logfile storage
medium (see section 8.7.1) in order to select a logfile for replay. Regardless
of storage medium, the directory is named Other\Pocket\Pro. A filter is
applied so that only files with extension .log are visible.
Once you have selected a logfile, the TEMS Pocket user interface (data
views, event log, event counters) is cleared, and the logfile replay is put on
standby. The actual replay does not begin until you select Play; see section
7.4.1 below.
During replay, the user interface is updated by the logfile content exactly as in
live mode, that is, exactly as if the data were being received from the network.
The cell control icon (see section 8.2.1) does not appear during replay, nor
can the Cell Control menu be accessed while a logfile is being replayed. It is
therefore not possible in TEMS Pocket to inspect the exact cell control

LZT 138 0254 R1A 49


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

settings that were in force at a particular point while recording the logfile. This
can however be done by replaying the logfile in TEMS Investigation and
studying certain information elements exhibited in that application (“Band
Control”, “Serving Cell List Active”, and others).
In both TEMS Pocket and TEMS Investigation, events reflecting the
application of cell control functions at recording time will appear during replay,
just like any other events.
If you rewind the logfile, the TEMS Pocket user interface (data views, event
log, event counters) is once again cleared. The same thing happens when
you exit replay mode.
During logfile recording, during execution of a command sequence, and
during FTP sessions the replay command is not available.

7.4.1. Replay Control Functions


Play: Replays the logfile at approximately live
speed. While the replay is in progress the button is
relabeled Pause, and pressing the button in that
situation pauses the replay. Press the button once
more (now named Play again) to resume the
replay from the point where it was paused.
Step: Reads one more phone message from the
logfile and then pauses the replay. You may have
to step several times to see any changes in the
data.
Options: Pressing this button gives access to
further replay control functions; see below.

Rewind: Rewinds the logfile to the beginning and


clears the TEMS Pocket user interface. Press Play
to start the replay once more.
Exit replay mode: Aborts the logfile replay, closes
the logfile, and returns TEMS Pocket to live mode.

50
Chapter 7. TEMS Pocket Functions in the Activity Menu

When the replay has reached the end of the logfile, the buttons are once
again relabeled, now with the choices in the Options menu (above):

Options: Toggle on-screen help mode; toggle


capture on/off.
Rewind: See above.
Exit: Exit replay mode; see above.

During logfile replay all other TEMS Pocket control functions (all other
commands in the Activity menu and all commands in the Cell Control, FTP,
Logfile, and Command Sequence menus) are disabled.
If an incoming call is received during logfile replay, you can choose either to
answer the call, aborting the replay, or to ignore the call and proceed with the
replay. In the latter case a busy tone will be sent to the calling party.

7.4.2. Icons Used for Logfile Replay


The following icons are displayed on the status bar to indicate the status of
the replay:

Replay in progress at normal speed (following Play command)

Replay paused (following Pause or Step command)

Replay stopped. This means that the logfile has been replayed to the
end.

7.5. Event Log


This is a shortcut to the event log; see section 8.3.1.

7.6. Start/Stop FTP


This command is used to conduct FTP sessions, including uploading of
TEMS Pocket logfiles if you prefer to do these uploads manually. The

LZT 138 0254 R1A 51

command takes you to a list of the FTP Get and FTP Put operations you have
defined. How to perform FTP operations and how to connect to FTP servers
is specified in the FTP menu: see section 8.6.
A series of events is generated in connection with each FTP session: see
section 8.3.5.6.
During logfile replay and during execution of a command sequence, this
command is not available.

7.7. Connect/Disconnect GPS


This command connects or disconnects a GPS (phone-internal or external).
For further information on using GPS devices with TEMS Pocket, see section
8.5.
The command is visible only if you have selected manual connect; see
section 8.5.1.
While a connect operation is in progress, the menu item reads “Connecting”
and is again grayed.
During logfile replay this command is not available.

7.8. Start/Stop Command Sequence


This command starts and stops a command sequence. How to set up
command sequences is explained in section 8.8.
When starting the command sequence, you are prompted to select which
action it should perform: voice, video, or FTP. The action you select must
have been previously defined in order for the command sequence to execute;
again, see section 8.8.
During logfile replay this command is not available.

8.4. Data Views Menu


From this menu you control what data views should be visible as you browse
through them. In the menu, the data views are organized in a multi-tab
structure with one tab for each data view category.

Toggle: Press this button to toggle the visibility for


the selected data view on and off.
Go to: Press this bottom to immediately display the
selected data view and exit the Data Views menu.

The Set all command (at the bottom of each tab) sets the visibility for all data
views in the group. Note that this command never has a preset value: the
submenu with the choices On and Off has no radio buttons.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 67


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

If you perform the Go to action for a data view whose visibility is currently set
to Off, the view is shown just this once; if you browse to a different view and
then back again, the hidden view will be skipped. To make the view
permanently visible again you must press Toggle to set its visibility to On.
If you turn off visibility for all data views, one data view will still remain visible
as you exit the menu system, namely the one you last accessed. If you do in
fact want to hide all data views, you should not edit these settings but rather
put TEMS Pocket in background or inactive mode: see section 7.1.

8.5. GPS Menu


Using a GPS device with TEMS Pocket enhances compatibility with products
such as TEMS Investigation and TEMS Automatic/TEMS Presentation by
allowing TEMS Pocket data to be presented on maps.
The GPS menu is used to control the choice of GPS device and various
aspects of how to interact with it.
You can export your GPS settings to file; they are included in the Export
settings operation (Tools menu: see section 8.9.4).

Using the Built-in GPS


The Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE has a built-in GPS, and TEMS Pocket can
make use of this device for positioning. Access to the built-in GPS is included
in the TEMS Pocket standard package.
To be available to TEMS Pocket, the built-in GPS must be enabled in the
regular phone user interface. In the phone’s main menu, navigate to Location
services → Settings and check that the third item in this submenu reads
“Disable GPS”, i.e. the GPS is currently enabled. (It is by default.) If
necessary, enable the GPS.

Whenever the built-in GPS is active, this icon from the regular phone
interface appears at the top of the display.
By default the phone also has the option Location services → Settings →
“Assisted start” activated. This means that the phone will use the Assisted
GPS (A-GPS) technology to reduce the time taken to obtain a first GPS fix.
The positioning accuracy, on the other hand, does not change.
Since the phone’s use of A-GPS involves contacting a Sony Ericsson specific
“assistance server”, the phone must have a functioning data account defined,
in the same way as for WAP.

68
Chapter 8. The Pocket Menu

The built-in GPS consumes a large amount of power and thus requires
frequent charging of the phone battery. See section 10.2 for some further
specifics on this matter.

Using an External GPS


TEMS Pocket can also connect to an external (Bluetooth) GPS. This
functionality, too, is part of the standard TEMS Pocket package.
You can connect to any Bluetooth GPS device that uses Bluetooth version
1.1 or later, SPP (Serial Port Profile) version 1.1, and NMEA-0183 version 2.2
or later.
Bluetooth pairing is handled from within TEMS Pocket: see section 8.5.2.
The “Assisted start” option (see Using the Built-in GPS above) cannot be
combined with an external GPS.

8.5.1. GPS Connect


Off: The phone will not connect to any GPS
(whether internal or external), and the Connect
GPS item in the Activity menu (section 7.7) is
hidden. If a GPS unit is currently connected,
choosing this option will disconnect it. If a connect
is in progress, it will be aborted.
Manual: The phone can be connected manually to
a GPS (internal or external) by using the command
in the Activity menu (see section 7.7). If a manual
connect fails, an error message is displayed.
Automatic: If GPS device (see section 8.5.2) is set
to Internal, or if GPS device is set to Bluetooth and
you successfully paired a GPS with the phone
when you last did a Bluetooth device search, then
the phone will try to connect to the selected GPS
automatically as soon as the phone is turned on. If
an automatic connect fails, the phone will do a retry
once every minute until it succeeds. No error
messages are given in this case.
Switching between the options Manual and
Automatic disconnects a GPS that is currently
connected.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 69


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

8.5.2. GPS Device


Here you select what kind of GPS device TEMS
Pocket should use. If you have selected
“Automatic” under GPS Connect, however (see
section 8.5.1), the GPS device dialog is not
accessible.
Internal: TEMS Pocket will use the phone’s
internal GPS.
Bluetooth: When you select this, TEMS Pocket
will start searching for available Bluetooth devices.
The found devices are listed on the screen shown
below.

Here are listed all Bluetooth devices that have


been found in the search. Note: In the list may
appear all kinds of Bluetooth compatible devices,
i.e. also devices other than GPS units.
• Among the devices found, select the GPS you
want to connect to. The phone will then attempt
Bluetooth pairing with the selected device. You
will be asked for a passcode.
The Connect GPS command in the Activity menu
(see section 7.7) will always apply to the Bluetooth
device last paired with the phone as just described.
If you want to refresh the search for Bluetooth
devices, you can do so at any time by selecting the
Bluetooth option again.

70
Chapter 8. The Pocket Menu

8.5.3. GPS Time Synch


If this is set to On, the phone clock will be
synchronized with the GPS time. This is useful for
instance if you are going to upload TEMS Pocket
logfiles to a TEMS Automatic database.
Note: For this synchronization to work, it is vital
that the time zone has been correctly set in the
phone.

8.6. FTP Menu


In this menu you specify FTP servers that the phone is going to interact with
(whether for FTP testing or for logfile upload). Here you also set up FTP Put/
Get operations to perform during testing.
You start and stop FTP testing from the Activity menu: see section 7.6.
You can export your FTP settings to file; they are included in the Export
settings operation (Tools menu: see section 8.9.4).

8.6.1. FTP Transfer


Here you define FTP Put and FTP Get operations. Up to ten operations can
be defined. At the outset they are simply numbered from 1 to 10 in the user
interface; you get the opportunity to name the operations while defining them
(see below).

• Select a number to define the corresponding


FTP operation.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 71


TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

Name: Text field for labeling the FTP operation.


Direction: Select FTP Put or FTP Get. The
remaining parameters are partly different for the
two types of operation:

FTP Put Specific Parameters


Local file: Browse to select the file to be uploaded.
Remote directory: Name of directory where the
file should be stored on the FTP server.
FTP Put parameters
FTP Get Specific Parameters
Remote file: Path describing the location of the file
to get on the FTP server. A leading slash may be
used as root symbol but is not mandatory.
Save file to: The downloaded file can be written
either to the phone memory or to the memory stick.
In either case, files are stored in the directory
Other.
If the phone runs out of memory during an FTP Get
FTP Get parameters operation, the operation will complete, but no file
will be stored in the phone file system.

Common Parameters
FTP server: Specify the FTP server to interact
with: one of those defined in the FTP server
submenu (see section 8.6.2).

Note that the file used for upload or download must not be larger than about
500 MB, or the FTP Data view (see section 4.4) will not show correct values
for the mean data transfer rate.
Once you are done setting up an FTP operation, its name and direction, the
server to interact with, and the file to put/get will appear in the FTP transfer

8.6.2. FTP Server


Here you specify FTP servers and how to access them. Up to ten FTP
servers can be defined. At the outset they are simply numbered from 1 to 10
in the user interface; you get the opportunity to name the servers while
defining them (see below).

• Select a number to define the corresponding


FTP server.

Name: Text field for labeling the FTP server.


Remote address: The IP address of the FTP
server. This can be either an alphanumeric string,
without ftp:// at the beginning (for example,
ftp.myftpserver.com), or a 12-digit number. The
address may not contain a path to a subdirectory.
Port: The FTP server port. The default is 21.
FTP user: User name on the FTP server.
FTP password: User password on the FTP server.

Remote directory: This parameter applies to


logfile upload only; it names the directory where the
logfiles should be stored on the FTP server. When
you perform a manual FTP Put operation, this
parameter is overridden by the identically named
parameter in the FTP Put command (see section
8.6.1).
Data account: Select the data account that should
be used for the FTP session.

Fixed timeouts (not user-configurable) are used when establishing the dialup
connection (60 s) and when setting up the FTP session itself (60 s). Failure to
obtain a response from the FTP server within the latter time period results in
“FTP session error”.

8.7. Logfile Menu


TEMS Pocket can record its measurements in logfiles, containing the same
richness of detail as logfiles recorded with TEMS Automatic test units or with
terminals connected to TEMS Investigation. Logfiles are ordinary files in the
phone file system and can be handled from the File manager.
Logfiles are stored either in the internal phone memory or on a memory stick
(see section 8.7.1 below). Sony Ericsson phones support Memory Stick M2.
You can record logfiles manually in the following ways:
• By using commands in the Activity menu (see section 7.3).
• In connection with pinpointing in the Map view (see chapter 6).
You can also configure TEMS Pocket to trigger automatic recording of logfiles
in a number of situations: see section 8.7.2.
TEMS Pocket has a logfile replay function, described in section 7.4. You can
also transfer the logfiles to a PC and replay them in TEMS Investigation
(version 10.0.3 or later) or import them into the database of a TEMS
Automatic system (version 8.0 or later). The file transfer can be done through
a USB cable or via Bluetooth. It is also possible to upload logfiles to an FTP
server using the built-in FTP client (see sections 8.7.3 and 8.7.6), or to send
logfiles as attachments to e-mail.
To reduce FTP transfer times, you can opt to compress logfiles prior to
upload. This is dealt with in section 8.7.4.

74
Chapter 8. The Pocket Menu

You can export all logfile-related settings to file; they are included in the
Export settings operation (Tools menu: see section 8.9.4).

8.7.1. Save Logfile To


Phone memory: Logfiles are saved to the phone
memory, directory Other\Pocket\Pro.
Memory stick: Logfiles are saved to the memory
stick, directory Other\Pocket\Pro, provided that the
phone has got a memory stick installed.

8.7.2. Autostart Logfile


You can configure logfile recording to start automatically in certain situations.
Below it is indicated when the automatic recording terminates if you do not
stop the recording manually from the Activity menu (which is always possible;
see section 7.3).

Startup: Logfile recording starts automatically when


the phone is powered on and continues until it is
powered off.
Voice: Logfile recording starts automatically at the
start of a voice call and stops at the end of that call.
Video: Logfile recording starts automatically at the
start of a video call and stops at the end of that call.
FTP: Logfile recording starts automatically at the
beginning of an FTP testing session (initiated by the
Start FTP command in the Activity menu: see section
7.6) and stops at the end of that session. (Recording
is not triggered by uploading logfiles via FTP.)

• Press Mark to check an option.


• Press Unmark to uncheck an option that is currently checked.
• Press Save to confirm your selections.

8.7.2.1. Notes on Message Buffering: Pre-guard Period


If at least one of the options Voice, Video, and FTP is checked in the
Autostart logfile dialog, then the phone will continuously maintain a buffer
holding the most recent signaling (up to 10 seconds’ worth of it). This is to
ensure that when logfile recording is triggered, the file will capture as much as
possible of the signaling leading up to the establishment of the call or data
session. The arrangement thus serves the same purpose as the pre-guard
period set in TEMS Automatic work order actions. In TEMS Pocket the length
of the pre-guard cannot be customized; the exact period of time spanned by
the message buffering depends on the amount of signaling that has occurred.
The buffering makes the logfile more complete not only for mobile-terminated
(MT) but also for mobile-originated (MO) calls and data sessions. This is
because in the MO case, the recording does not begin instantly as the user
initiates the service from the phone keypad, but only after a certain delay (the
exact details being service-specific).
Selecting the Startup option does not trigger buffering of messages.
Message buffering is furthermore associated with automatic logfile recording
only. The buffer will be kept up-to-date whenever autostart options are
selected as described above, but if you record a logfile manually (see section
7.3), the buffer contents are not logged.

8.7.2.2. Post-guard Period


When the trigger condition for stopping an automatic logfile recording is
satisfied, a post-guard time of 10 seconds is added before the recording is
stopped and the logfile closed. The purpose of the post-guard period is to
capture signaling taking place in connection with termination of the service.
Exception: The above does not apply to the Startup option and power-off.

8.7.3. Upload Logfile


Here you configure uploading of logfiles via FTP to
an FTP server. What server to upload to is selected
in the FTP server submenu: see section 8.7.6.
Immediate: Each logfile is uploaded as soon as it
has been recorded.
Schedule: Logfiles are uploaded according to a
schedule that you define here. Select this option to
enter the Start time screen, then turn to section
8.7.3.1.
Each time an upload is performed, all logfiles are
sent that have not yet been uploaded (logfiles
created since the last upload, plus any older
logfiles that may remain because you aborted
uploading of these files).
Off: No uploading. Logfiles are simply stored in the
phone memory or on the memory stick as long as
free space is available. Use this setting if you
prefer to upload logfiles manually using the FTP
Put command (see section 7.6).a

a. There is yet another way to upload logfiles manually, using a command


accessed from the phone file system. See chapter 9.

Logfiles cannot be uploaded while a command sequence is executing or


during logfile replay. If a logfile upload comes due (according to the upload
schedule defined) while one of these tasks is in progress, that upload is
simply canceled. Uploads are resumed (again following the upload schedule)
after the command sequence or replay has been ended.
A set of events is provided reporting on the progress and outcome of each
automatic upload. See section 8.3.5.6.

LZT 138 0254 R1A 77

8.7.3.1. Setting an Upload Schedule

Step 1
Now: Choose this option to perform the first upload
right away (as soon as you are done setting up the
schedule). Skip to Step 3 below.
00:00: Choose this option to specify a time of day
when the first upload should be performed.

Step 2
If you chose “00:00” in Step 1, set the upload time
here.

Step 3
Set the interval between uploads. None means
that only a single upload will be performed.
Press Select to complete the schedule setup. If you
chose Now in Step 1, the upload will start
immediately; otherwise it will start at the scheduled
time.
You can abort an upload in progress by using the
Stop FTP Put command in the Activity menu (see
section 7.6). If you abort an upload, the files that
were not transferred will be included in the next
upload.

78
Chapter 8. The Pocket Menu

8.7.4. Compress
If set to On, logfiles will be compressed using a
Huffman coding algorithm before they are
uploaded.a
If compression is turned on, it will take place
regardless of the upload procedure chosen
(automatic or manual: see section 8.7.3). However:
• After an automatic upload, the original
uncompressed logfile (as well as the
compressed version) will be deleted from the
phone file system.
• After a manual upload initiated by a Start FTP
command (section 7.6), the original logfile will
remain on the phone.

a. Compressed logfiles receive the extension .LZZ; this is a TEMS-specific


extension recognized by the automated logfile handling in TEMS
Presentation. If you wish to unpack uploaded logfiles manually on the
FTP server, for example using gzip, replace “.LZZ” by “.log.gz” in each
file. (Replaying TEMS Pocket logfiles in TEMS Investigation currently
requires the logfiles to be unpacked.)

It should be pointed out that compression of large logfiles takes considerable


time and that all logfiles to be uploaded in the same batch are compressed
before any uploading begins. (It is possible to abort an upload at any time.)
If the FTP transfer fails, for example because the FTP transfer setup in TEMS
Pocket is faulty, then the logfiles will remain compressed and included in the
first subsequent upload that succeeds.

TEMS Pocket 7.2 for Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE – User’s Manual

8.7.5. FTP Resume


If set to On, then if a logfile upload is interrupted
because the FTP connection goes down, the
upload will be resumed from the point where it was
interrupted.
If set to Off, an interrupted logfile upload will be
restarted from the beginning.
For the function to work, the FTP server must
support resume functionality.

8.7.6. FTP Server


Here you select a FTP server to upload logfiles to.
The servers listed are those that you define in the
FTP menu (see section 8.6.2). Note that the
Remote directory parameter must have a valid
value for any server that is going to be used for
logfile uploads.

8.8. Command Sequence Menu


TEMS Pocket supports automation of voice calls, video calls, and FTP data
sessions using the command sequence. The command sequence can only
run one service at a time; it is not possible to mix, for example, voice and FTP
in the sequence.
You start and stop the command sequence from the Activity menu: see
section 7.8.
While the command sequence is executing it will repeat the action defined for
it over and over again.

80
Chapter 8. The Pocket Menu

Note: Running a command sequence for extended periods of time


places a high load on the phone battery. See section 10.3 for
advice on how to ensure that the battery is not drained.

You can export your command sequence setups to file; they are included in
the Export settings operation (Tools menu: see section 8.9.4).

10. Battery Charging


Considerations

Running several tasks in parallel on the Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE places a
heavy load on the phone battery. It may in fact happen that the battery
charger cannot keep up with the power consumption, so that the battery will
eventually be drained even if the charger is connected all the time. This
situation may arise for example if the phone is more or less constantly using
one service or another while at the same time having its display fully lit.
Some specific advice on battery charging related matters is given below.

10.1. Choice of Phone Charger


When engaging the phone in highly power-consuming tasks, you should
always use the regular phone charger. The USB charger which is also
provided with the phone is only about one third as powerful, which will often
be vastly insufficient when running TEMS Pocket.

10.2. Using the Phone’s Built-in GPS


You need to be aware that using the phone’s internal GPS with TEMS Pocket
very considerably increases the power consumption and hence the risk that
the battery charger cannot keep up.

10.3. Using a TEMS Pocket Command Sequence


If you are using the command sequence function in TEMS Pocket, you must
take special steps to ensure that the phone battery is not drained.
To understand why it is first necessary to explain how the battery charging in
the Sony Ericsson W995 EDGE works.
First we need to define the end-of-charge (EoC) state for the battery. This is a
state where the battery is regarded as fully charged by the phone’s charging
algorithm. The precise details need not bother us; however, and crucially, the

92
Chapter 10. Battery Charging Considerations

method of testing whether the EoC state has been reached is to measure the
average current flowing to/from the battery over a period of time.
Now, if TEMS Pocket is continuously executing a command sequence (say,
making voice calls), the phone will be switching frequently between idle and
dedicated mode. This in turn means that the current to the battery will not be
constant enough for the EoC state ever to be reached. Even if the battery
charge level remains high at all times (for example, above 90%), the charging
algorithm will never consider the battery to be fully charged.
Since prolonged charging of the battery increases the risk of battery failure,
the charging algorithm has a safety timer that disables the charger after four
hours if the battery has failed to reach the EoC state within this time. If this
happens, the phone will run on batteries until the charger is disconnected and
reconnected, or until the phone is power cycled. If neither of these actions is
performed, and a command sequence is running, the battery will be drained
in a fairly short time.
For example, suppose that the following command sequence is executed:
• Voice call (see section 8.8.1)
• Call duration = 15 s
• Guard time = 60 s
The phone performs charging in idle mode only, unless the battery charge is
low. In the above case, the phone is idle about 50% of the time, so after about
4 × 2 = 8 hours the safety timer expires and the charger is disabled. After that
the phone runs on battery power only, and tests using a battery in near mint
condition have shown that the battery is then drained in about 4 hours.
To prevent this situation from arising, you have two options:
• One way is to disable the command sequence for a while (before the
safety timer expires) to give the phone an unbroken stretch of time in idle
mode and allow the battery to reach the EoC state. Note, however, that
the length of the break required depends on the settings in the command
sequence and on the general condition of the battery. In the above test
case, an idle mode period of 15–20 minutes was required, but in other
circumstances more time may be needed. (You must halt the command
sequence manually, as described in section 7.8.)
• Another approach is simply to make sure you disconnect the battery
charger physically from the phone (or unplug the charger from its power
source) before the battery is drained, and then reconnect the charger.
The latter option is the only completely safe one, and it is therefore
recommended.
