tion result of a classification applied to a set of objects is a tree structure in which the
objects are the leaves, and the classification criteria are the nodes.
A classification can be applied to Network Objects (Topology Classification),
Object Zones (Zone Classification), and Functions (Function Classification).
Typical classifications are:
• All (all objects)
• Topo (all objects classified according to topologic relations between them).
• LAC (all objects classified according to their LAC attribute)
• etc.
Execution The execution context contains what is required to obtain the indicator or counter
Context values on a set of network objects, for example:
• Periodicity (Raw, Hour, Day, Week, Month, 5 Minutes, 1/4 Hour, 1/2 Hour,
busy hours, Trend choices (hours of day, hours of week, days of week, and
days of month), 2 Hours, 3 Hours, 4 Hours, 6 Hours, 8 Hours.)
• Time interval
• Sampling
• Interpolation
• Reliability options.
When referring to the execution context, the spatial scope itself (set of network
objects) is not included.
The execution context is used when creating views and reports.
Comment A comment zone is an area of text that may be entered in a report template and is
Zone therefore displayed in an executed report.
Comment zones are not mandatory. They may be interleaved with the view
templates in the report template.
Design Parameters that define the radio network architecture in term of coverage and
Parameters mobility capability.
Diagnosis Diagnosis scenarios provide information on the possible causes of a QoS problem
Scenario and suggest ways to solve it.
The result of the diagnosis appears in the executed view or as an .html file.
The following modes apply:
• Detailed mode
When executed in detailed mode, the diagnosis scenario report contains a
precise reporting execution description for each node of the scenario.
• Synthetic mode
When executed in Synthetic mode, the diagnosis report contains a synthetic
status associated with a description string for the whole scenario. The
execution process is stopped at the first for the first error encountered.
• Tuning mode
The diagnosis can be triggered for checking the Tuning Session.

and calculated indicators. Based on the database, the detection of QoS degradation is
much faster, as the NPO also proposes the appropriate correction tasks and an improved
logical configuration for the radio network, even in multi-standard environments.
Performance measurements ensure:
• Efficient planning and optimization of the network
• Efficient optimization of the network
• Usage statistics
• Detailed investigation of a past problem
• Realtime analysis.

NPO user interface


The user interface is the main asset of the NPO. The user interface is intuitive, allowing
the optimizer to interact with the tool in an intuitive way, in order to receive all required
information, commands, and processing results.
The NPO user interface uses the latest graphical methods to provide a clear representation
of all types of data. Functions, referred to as gadgets, are used to present objects (e.g.
GSM, W-CDMA or LTE cells, QoS indicators, logical parameters, etc.) and sort data by
different criteria. Gadgets are grouped into tabs according to their use (e.g. selection of
cells and parameters, or display of QoS indicators). Data appears in tables or charts, and
some facilities allow the user to quickly reorganize the user-interface look.

Introduction to NPO NPO user interface

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
The following figure shows the main Man-Machine Interface (MMI) window, the QoS
analysis desktop.

The user interface is based on an object-oriented design, whereby all actions are
accessible through contextual menus. Depending on the selected object(s), only the
relevant commands are provided. Most operations can be performed through the drag and
drop mechanism or with the help of menu bars and tool bars.
The main NPO user interface (analysis desktop) is composed of the following five areas.

Standards and modes browser


Standards define the technologies available on NPO (GSM, W-CDMA, WiMAX, LTE).
Each standard tab has a set of modes. According to the selected mode, the list of
displayed counters / indicators / parameters / reports / views is not the same. It is filtered
according to the availability domain.

Topology classification browser


Radio resources (cells), as well as physical resources (BTS, NodeB, BSC, RNC, eNodeB)
are displayed in tree gadgets and can be selected from the tree gadgets. Different tree
gadgets are used to display the network resources by different classification criteria.

The classification can be done, for example, by:
• LAC
• Hardware topology
• Cell type
• Routing area (for GPRS).

Function classification browser


Functions belonging to a selected network resource from the topology browser are also
displayed inside tree gadgets and can be selected from the tree gadgets. This area allows
the operator to select QoS indicators, QoS counters, logical / design parameters, or views
/ reports (grouped into families).

View browser
The view browser is the target place for drag and drop of one or more network resources
and one or more functions.
It contains views that are used to display values of logical / design parameters, indicators,
and counters.
The displayed data in the view can be exported to Excel for further analysis.
Two mode forms are available:
• Tabular
• Graphic.

Report browser
The report browser is the target place for drag and drop of one or more network resources
and one or more views.
A report is composed of several views, each displaying a set of defined indicators or
parameters for a user defined report period.
Data displayed in the report can be exported to Excel for further analysis.

Tuning browser
The tuning components offer services to create, edit, and apply tuning sessions on tunable
systems (OMC-Rs). A Tuning Session is a set of changes (object / parameters /
adjacencies / frequency creation, update or deletion) that can be created, updated and
applied.

Detailed diagnosis report browser


The detailed diagnosis report browser gives information on the possible cause of a
detected QoS problem, and offers hyperlinks to view the Python node code.

Cartography browser
The geographical representation capability is a complement to the tree gadgets
representation. GSM cells, W-CDMA cells, LTE cells, BTSs, NodeBs, BSCs, RNCs,
MSCs, OMC-Rs, eNodeBs, or adjacencies are displayed with geographical maps in the
background, in order to display the location of the network elements, the sectoring, the
type and the status of cells at a glance. This geographical representation offers zooming
facilities and searching facilities (by dragging and dropping objects from tree gadges
representations).

NPO functions
The NPO enables you to optimize the following functions.

QoS analysis
The NPO collects periodical measurements of the radio traffic, radio resource usage, and
handover behavior from the network elements through the declared OMC-Rs. These
measurements serve the quality of service monitoring at the NPO, and back-office
activities such as network optimization and network planning.
The permanent, network-wide QoS monitoring relies on the regular collection of the same
performance counters on all managed Network Elements.
Raw measurements are stored in the NPO database. Based on raw measurements,
indicators are calculated and stored for up to two years. These indicators are consolidated
in daily, weekly, and monthly values, and can be additionally consolidated on a group of
Network Elements. The indicators correspond to high level information which can be
directly managed by the operator and are defined by Alcatel-Lucent.
The user can select and launch any predefined or user-defined QoS report. the NPO
provides a powerful dynamic graphical user interface that eases QoS report analysis. For
specific needs where the provided standard indicators are not appropriate, the operator
can define via an Indicator Manager its own indicators called Customer Indicators.
The NPO operator can display the results in the form of reports containing both tables and
graphs (several indicators graphically displayed simultaneously). The customer can also
customize reports, for an easier adaptation to operator needs.
Special functions allow identification of the worst or best cells related to a QoS indicator,
to get reports on the QoS evolution, and to compare the service quality of different cells.
Comparing QoS indicator values with predefined thresholds, the NPO ensures rapid
verification of the quality of service in each single cell.

Reference values
Reference values are the recommended values of parameters. They allow a quick audit of
the network and allow the operator to detect which objects are not following
recommendations for parameter values. The reference values for a parameter depend on
different criteria, such as cell type, cell class, frequency, and BTS type.

Introduction to NPO NPO functions

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
NPO is delivered with a default set of reference values, which can be customized to fit the
operator's needs.

Operator reference values


The network Operator Reference Values (ORV) are sets of parameters related to network
objects. The Operator Reference Values are the reference values for an instance of
objects, and not for an object type as reference values.
The ORV data are stored in the database and can be restored later through a tuning
session.

Rules and diagnosis


The NPO is used to investigate and diagnose QoS problems. Depending on the raised
problem, it proposes some corrective actions and / or extra investigations.
In order to benefit directly from any optimizer's field experience, the NPO allows
integrating new diagnosis scenarios. In this way, the network optimizer can rely on the
diagnosis rules supplied by Alcatel-Lucent, but also on the ones derived from their own
optimization experience.
Whenever a QoS indicator reaches its alert threshold, the NPO offers the diagnosis
feature to the optimizer, in order to find out the possible cause of the QoS degradation.

Events
Events show when key information of a parameter (identifier, BSC, frequency) or
topology (eg. Move BTS) changes, based on the QoS evolution of the network.
The NPO is delivered with a default set of events.
Note: For W-CDMA, only the following events are available:
• Cell
• Adjacency
• Network element creation / deletion.
For LTE, the events are not available.

Configuration parameters
The configuration function is used to verify the operational logical parameter settings.
This is done by comparing the operational values with the reference values.
Additionally, the operational cell design is verified by comparison with the planned
design. In order to follow the evolution of the logical parameter settings, the imported
operational values are stored in the NPO database. Appropriate reports can be requested at

Introduction to NPO NPO functions

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
Tuning
After a network optimization session is completed, a radio parameter tuning is performed
using the NPO. This is done in order to correct the network misbehavior and uses
functions of monitoring, checking, and diagnosis. The NPO user can prepare radio
resource configuration modifications, frequency changes and neighborhood modification
and apply them through the managed OMC-Rs.

Cartography
The cartography module allows the user to show the location of the network elements, the
sectoring, the type and the status of cells at a glance. It displays cells, adjacencies, BTSs,
BSCs and eNodeBs with geographical maps in the background, coming from RNP. The
integrated cartography editor offers zooming, highlighting, searching, and exporting
facilities.
Contextual menus on cells allow a quick identification of interfered cells, serving cell
area, neighborhood, etc. Finally, it is possible to choose any group of cells in the
geographical representation and show them selected in the different tree gadgets. NPO
geographical representation supports standard vector formats.

Network stability, availability and alarms


The Network Unavailability and Alarm Reporting Tool (NUART):
• Analyzes and reports system quality degradation
• Detects the impact on stability and unavailability
• Highlights faulty equipment
• Extracts unavailability related to managed objects for a specified time period
• Filters and sorts statistics.
Based on the reported PM data, alerters detect QoS problems and generate QoS alarms.
For more information, refer to the NPO Unavailability User Guide.

Remote inventory data management (RIDM)


Note: This section is not applicable for W-CDMA.
The NPO manages the hardware inventory for Network Elements from the OMC-Rs that
send data automatically, in order to show information about the required equipment.
The NPO offers support for statistics, and search and comparison with the list of allowed
items referred to as CAL (Customer Acceptance List).
For more information, refer to the NPO Unavailability User Guide.

Customizing
In order to allow immediate use of the NPO, all adaptable values are set with default
values provided by Alcatel-Lucent at delivery. The operator must perform the
customization, as specific access rights are required.

Introduction to NPO NPO functions

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
You can customize the following values:
• User defined QoS indicators
NPO users can create their own indicators when required.
• QoS indicator thresholds
The user can define three alert thresholds corresponding to three QoS requirement
levels, for each QoS indicator.
• Views
A view is an arrangement of consistent graphs and tables for a set of QoS indicators,
parameters, and other functions.
The following four types of views are defined: standard, vector, and matrix and
equipment.
Apart from the specific case of Equipment, views can also be grouped into four types
of evolution and comparison:
– Mono-Object Evolution View
– Multi-Object Evolution View
– Multi-Object Comparison View
– Mono-Object Distribution View.
• Reports
A report is composed of one or several views, and enables the user to display results
coming from QoS indicators, parameters, and other functions in view templates.
NPO provides the five types of reports:
– Mono-Object Evolution Report
– Multi-Object Evolution Report
– Multi-Object Comparison Report
– Mono-Object Distribution Report
– Warning Report.
• Working zones
A Working Zone defines an area on which an optimizer performs his network
optimization activities (network resource filter).
• Object zones
An object zone is a user-defined filter that works on the current Working Zone.
• Topology classifications
The topology classification defines how network objects are classified in a tree
structure, depending on the selected mode. It is dependant on used technology.
• Function classifications
The function classification defines how functions are classified in a tree structure. It is
not dependant on the used technology.
• Free field definitions
Free fields are attributes that can be defined on any topology objects (such as cells,
BSCs, RNCs). Sorting and filtering capabilities can then be used to take advantage of
the information provided by these fields.
• Parameter reference values

The reference value of a logical parameter is the one recommended by the
optimization expert.
• Parameter checking rules
A parameter checking rule expresses the functional dependency between a set of
parameters of objects like cell, BSS or adjacent cells.
• Diagnosis scenarios
A diagnosis scenario is an analysis tree that contains ways to investigate a quality of
service problem using the data available in NPO. Scenarios can be system or user
defined.
• Alerters
Based on the reported Performance Measurement data, alerters are defined to detect
Qos problems and generate Qos alarms in the NPO. They are calculated from
indicators.

NPO advanced optimization features


The NPO provides the following advanced optimization features.

Working zones
Working zones facilitate the work on a specific set of network objects and functions. They
are sub-network definitions, to assist the operator, who can only work in some Working
Zones.
When starting the Analysis Desktop, the user selects the preferred Working Zone to work
with and only sees the objects from this Working Zone.
To define a Working Zone, a set of criteria on base objects (for example, cells) is provided
and other accessible objects are deduced from this basic set of objects.
The Global Working Zone is a Working Zone with no filter that contains all objects.

Radio measurement statistics


Even if the Radio Measurement Statistics (RMS) feature is a GSM-specific feature, the
NPO offers some services based on RMS because it is of prime importance for GSM
operators and the aim of the NPO is to offer all the means possible to optimize the radio
network, regardless of the type of technology used.
RMS allows the operator to:
• Detect interfered frequencies
• Assess the quality of cell coverage
• Assess the traffic distribution in the cell using statistics on reported neighbor cells
• Evaluate the voice quality in the cell.
To Import RMS Template Values (GSM Specific), refer to the NPO Administration User
Guide document.

QoS and resource unavailability correlation
Note: This section is not available for W-CDMA.
When a cell has a bad QoS (for example, because of congestion), it is important for the
optimizer to know if this bad QoS is due to a pure radio problem, or to a hardware failure
or maintenance action that led to the unavailability of the corresponding equipment. For
example, if a cell with four TRX had two of the four TREs out of service during the day,
there is a strong probability that there was some congestion during this period.
LASER calculates unavailability indicators based on information collected from the
managed OMC-Rs, which are then imported into the NPO. Each indicator reflects the
availability percentage of the corresponding resource (for example, cell or TRX). The
operator can display these indicators or use them as an optional filter for warning reports
(for example, to display the 20 worst cells of the Working Zone, in terms of congestion,
and having an unavailability less than 5% during the day).

User defined indicators


The NPO provides a rich set of default QoS indicators that allow the optimizer to
carefully follow the network's quality of service and take corrective actions, in the case
they are not optimal.
At the same time, it also allows operators to define their own QoS indicator formulas,
using a graphical editor. Once the indicators are created, they are available for all QoS
related functions, such as QoS reports.
Alcatel-Lucent delivers its own set of indicators (system indicators), but the operator can
create its own (customer indicators).
The threshold of system indicators can be updated by the optimizer.

User defined rules


The NPO interface allows the user to change the applicable rules and checked parameters.
Rules are the dependencies between two or more parameters of a given network object
(for example, one timer must be higher than another). The format of the rules file is
Excel.
Default rules are provided with the system, but they can also be changed to better suit
customer needs. The maximum value of rules provided within the NPO application (per
RNS / BSS / eNodeB release) is 200. The operator can create up to 50 rules.

User defined diagnosis


The NPO investigates the causes of QoS weaknesses for particular QoS indicators and
complex rules, using predefined diagnosis scenarios. It then suggests corrective actions
and / or further investigation.
System diagnosis scenarios are provided by the NPO, but optimizers can create their own
diagnosis scenarios, using the Eclipse editor. The procedure is explained in the NPO
Diagnosis Development User Guide.

User defined thematic layers
The thematic layer is a feature that allows the user to visualize QoS information on the
geographical representation. It colors parts of the geographical representation, according
to user requests on the QoS indicators, parameter values, analysis results, etc.
The NPO provides a thematic layer editor where each operator is free to enter his own
requests and the associated colors depending on the results. The product is delivered with
some default layers like traffic distribution or frequency reusing.
The results are mapped on cell contours (when analysis is done on cells) to provide a
good representation, even at low zoom level.

User defined topology objects


Note: This is not available for LTE.
Besides the imported topology objects, the customer can create their own topology
objects. The procedure is defined in Manage customer topology objects, in the NPO
Administration User Guide.

Resizing
A horizontal splitter separates the Mode browser and Executed View browser; and a
vertical splitter separates the Mode browser and Executed Report browser. The browsers
can be re-sized and the splitters act as partitions (see “Layout user preferences”

Visibility management
If a Sub-Family is not defined, then the function object appears under the Family. If a
Family is not defined, then the function object is invisible and can only be seen by the
Administrator and its owner at the root level.
Visibility management for objects in the modes and functions browser takes into
consideration the following factors:
• When an object has no family, it is only visible to the Administrator and its owner in
the editors, not in the Analysis Desktop tree (except concerning working zone)
• When an object has a family, it is visible only if the Visible flag is set to true
• When an operator removes the family associated with an object, the Visible flag is
automatically set to false and cannot be changed until a new family is reentered
• When an operator associates a family with an object, the Visible flag is automatically
set to true but can then be changed before being saved
• For System objects, only the Administrator can change the Visible property.

Manage tokens
The Token Management system limits the number of clients running simultaneously. If
there is an inactive client, its token is automatically released and becomes available for
another client. When a client loses its token due to an inactivity period, it is possible to
retrieve a token (if there is any available) and continue to work as usual.
With this feature, it is possible to have a number of clients running on a HMI server
bigger than the maximum number of allowed users, because some clients can be
considered as inactive.

Token request
When the Analysis Desktop is started, it requests for a token from the server. The server
returns the token to the client.
If there is no token available, an error message appears.

In this message, you can:


• Request a token again, by clicking on Request Token, OR
• Close the Analysis Desktop, by clicking on Exit.

Token refresh
When the Analysis Desktop is running, it refreshes the token every five minutes by
sending a request to the server. If the server does not receive any request for the token
from the Analysis Desktop for more than five minutes, then the token is released in the
server.
If there is no token available when a refresh request is received, the server sends an error
message.

In this message, you can:


• Exit from the application after confirmation (any unsaved work will be lost), by
clicking on Exit, OR
• Try again to retrieve a token if one was released by someone else, by clicking on
Retrieve Token.
A new request is sent to the server, and depending on the answer:
– The same error message as above appears again, OR
– The token is now refreshed and you can continue working as before having lost
the token.

Automatic token release


When a client is inactive (no input received from the user) for a configurable period of
time, a warning message appears.

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Procedure 2-11: String based tree filtering


Presentation
With this feature, a new filtering capability is offered in all trees available in order to
allow restricting the list of objects displayed in the tree.
At the top of all the topology and function trees in both Analysis Desktop main window
and in editors, is present a text box labeled Find.
The applied label filters do not persist. If the user session is closed and reopened, trees
will not have any active label filters.
The string based filters are lost in case of a change Working Zone.
In a same user session, the applied label filters are kept (until they are modified or
cleared). They are also kept after a refresh tree / refresh all actions.
Note: When a filter is applied, the [<filtering string>] is displayed in the tree footer.
The number of objects and selected objects displayed in the tree footer is updated
based on the filtered tree. When no "specific topology" filter is selected, remove [No
Filter] in the footer of the topology window.

Procedure
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

1 In the Find text box, type the name of the object to find and click on Enter.
Note: Only tree items equals exactly to the entered string are retained (together with
their hierarchy/children).
If you want to display objects starting or ending or containing a given string, you must
use the following wildcards:
• *: Any multiple characters (including zero character)
• ?: Any single character.
Result: If any matching object of the complete tree is found, it is displayed in the tree.
Note:
• If a leaf node matches the filtering string, it is kept with its hierarchy (if any).
• If a non leaf node matches the filtering string, it is kept with all its children as well as
its hierarchy.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

2 To clear the content of the text box, click on Clear.


Result: The complete tree is displayed.

Procedure 3-1: Propagate network objects or object zones


between topology classification or zone modes
This section describes how to propagate a selection of network objects or object zones
between topology classifications and zone modes.
The following propagations are possible:
• Network objects to topology classification or zone modes
• Object zones to network objects
• Network objects to object zones.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

1 Click on the network object or object zone to propagate.


It is possible to perform multiple selections and de-selections.
Result: If it is a leaf node, the object is selected. If it is a nonleaf node, all objects
under that node are selected.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

2 Drag the selected network object / object zone and drop it to a different zone mode or
topology classification.
During the dragging process, if the mode or classification are incompatible with the
selected network object / object zone, the mouse pointer changes to .
Continue the dragging process to an appropriate mode / classification, where the mouse
pointer is .
Result: The selected network object / object zone is successfully relocated.
Depending on how the Display time before a tab is raised and made active
parameter is set as a user preference, the target mode or target classification, with the
highlighted propagated network object or object zone:
• Is automatically displayed, OR
• You have to switch to the target mode / classification to view it.
The view is auto-scrolled until the first selected object is visible.
Note: If a filter is applied on the target classification, some dropped objects may not
be visible. In this case, a message appears and you must either choose to remove the
current filter (i.e. switch to No Filter), or to drop it.

Trend periodicities
The following checks are made if a trend is selected:
• For the trend on hours of day, the period must cover at least 1 day (24 hours)
• For the trend on hours of week, the period must cover at least 1 week
• For the trend on days of week, the period must cover at least 1 week
• For the trend on days of month, the period must cover at least 1 month.
Trend on hours of day and trend on hours of week are available if the Hour period is also
available.
Trend on days of week and trend on days of month are available if the Day period is also

The following table presents information on the trend calculation.

Table 3-1 Trend calculation

Periodicity Calculation
Trend on hours There are 24 columns from 00h, 01h, 02h,... 23h.
of day The value at hour n is the average for all selected day at hour n.
For example, value at 1AM is the average of the value at Monday 1AM,
Tuesday 1AM.
Trend on hours There are 7 * 24 columns.
of week The first column is the first day of the week (according to the system
preferences) followed by ' ' and then followed by HHh.
For example, if Monday is the first day of the week, then the columns start
and end as:
The value at hour n for day d is the average for all selected weeks at hour n
and day d.
Trend on days The days of the week are displayed in seven columns
of week The first column is the first day of the week as defined in the system
preferences.
For example, if the first day of the week is Monday, then the columns are:

The value at day d is the average of the value at day d for all selected week.
For example, the value at Monday is the average of the value of Monday the
1st week and Monday the 2nd week.
Trend on days The days of the month are displayed as DD.
of month For example if the month of September is used, then the days are: 01, 02,
03,..., 30.
If, for example, the months of Sept Dec are used, then the days are: 01, 02,...,
30, 31.
The value of the n day, is the average of the value of the indicator at day n for
any selected month.

The trend calculation is not applied directly on the indicator formula, but on the stored
indicators (basic indicators) belonging to the formula.
For example an indicator I = A / B, where A and B are stored indicator, then a trend
calculation on the indicator I become trend(I) = avg(A) / Avg(B).
Note: The trend option takes into account only alarms loaded data. Null values are not
considered for trending calculations.

Spatial aggregation
When the Spatial checkbox is selected for Aggregation, then the spatial aggregation
method of each basic indicator is used.
This option can only be applied to standard indicators, it is not available neither for
parameters nor for counters.
This check box is disabled in the following cases:
• For warning reports
• For MultiNET mode and all modes containing object zones
• If the view / report deals only with one object
• If after an interactive modification, the execution context contains different type of
objects or object zones.
Refer to “Display spatial aggregation in views / reports” (p. 19-94) for detailed
information on how to use this option.

Temporal aggregation
When the Temporal check box is selected for Aggregation, the aggregation is performed
on the temporal axis.
This check box is disabled in the following cases:
• For warning reports
• For BH trends periodicities
• For Static Trend prediction
• For Zone modes, Traffic Zone and MultiNET mode
• If the function does not contain at least one standard indicator.

The values of QoS Requirement are Low, Medium, and High, as previously set as a user
preference.
This changes which values are highlighted in the view from the Legend, based on the
threshold values per QoS requirement set in the indicator definition.

The linear interpolation can be specific if the values before or
after are not known.
Only OK value When a display period is not fully available, a NULL value is
provided for that displayed period
Extend Only the existing values are used and they are extended to the
wanted displayed period
Zero All the missing periods are set to the zero value
Padding All the missing periods are set to a padding value. This is zero by
default, but can be configurable through the Padding parameter.

Interpolation is only required if there are indicators in the view and the Allow Dynamic
Interpolation user preference is true.

Sampling
When Sampling is set and Upper_is_fault flag is set to FALSE for the sampling indicator
and the value of the sampling indicator is smaller than the sampling value defined in the
indicator, then values are displayed in gray.
In the other cases, values are displayed in their normal style.

Reliability
Note: This feature is not applicable for W-CDMA.
When Reliability is set, if the value of the reliability indicator is incorrect (not green), the
values are displayed in italic.
In the other cases, values are displayed in their normal style.
Note: The chosen values are stored as implicit user preferences. When the same
screen is reopened, these values are displayed as default one.

Presentation 4-1
Topology object tabs 4-2
Display topology object properties 4-11
Procedure 4-1: Add associated network objects 4-21
Use network object class 4-21
Procedure 4-2: Use network object class editor 4-24
Procedure 4-3: Assign operational network object class 4-30

Presentation
The objects found in the Topology window represent objects in your network. They
appear in different relational lists represented by tabs and sub-tabs.
These objects are discovered by the NPO through files retrieved from the declared data
sources (for example, parameter files, PM files). At this moment, they are considered as
operational objects.
When a network object disappears from the network, the OMC no longer reports data on
it. The NPO will detect it but will keep it in its database as a soft-deleted object (marked
with the red cross icon ).
The time until an object appears as soft-deleted depends on the way it is reported.
If an object is not reported anymore within a topology that can be considered as a
reference, then NPO will soft-delete it immediately.It is the case for instance when a 2G
TRX is not reported anymore for a BTS.For other objects, the soft-deletion will occur if
no data are reported on it for 5 days.

Soft-deleted objects can be filtered from different menus and are excluded from
aggregations.
To use network objects, drag and drop them together with their appropriate parameters
and functions in the other functional windows.
To create / load / delete customer topology objects, refer to the NPO Administration User
Guide document, to Manage customer topology objects.
Free fields are attributes that can be declared on any topology object present in the NPO
database. Refer to the NPO Administration User Guide document, to Import free fields
using GUI.
For a network element, you can assign a different network object class. Refer to
Procedure 4-2.2: “Create network object class” (p. 4-27).
To create sub-working zones from the selected topology objects, refer to Procedure 8-6.3:
“Create sub-working zone from topology objects list” (p. 8-20).
For a list of topology objects icons, refer to “Topology icons” (p. 27-4).

Definition
Cell class is a parameter that describes the geographic environment and predicted traffic
of cells.
A cell class is associated with each cell through the RNP interface.
It is used by the NPO as:
• Filtering criteria for logical parameter reference values and rules
• Optimization method of the network.
A new tab is added in the Topology Classification panel: Cell class.

Classification
The NPO manages two different cell classes:
• Planned cell class - this value comes from RNP
• Operational cell class - this value is either chosen in NPO or comes from the OMC-R
(when cell class is supported in the OMC-R, for example, in the W-CDMA).
Besides the two values (planned and operational), the NPO manages an additional flag
allowing i to remember if the Operational cell class was set to the Planned value or not.
Alcatel-Lucent provides the following predefined and non-modifiable set of cell classes,
known as system cell classes:
• Rural
• Suburban
• Urban
• Dense urban
• Indoor.
System cell classes cannot be viewed, modified, or deleted using the Network Object
Class Editor.
In order to correspond to their own optimization methods, the optimizer may define
additional customer cell classes.

Definitions
An object zone describes a set of network objects of the same type, filtered by a set of
filters. The operator can define, for example, an Object Zone containing all cells having a
call-drop of 3% or more.
The filters are dynamically applied to the current Working Zone, in order to obtain the list
of objects contained in the zone. This list of objects is therefore dynamic and depends on
the opened Working Zone.
The operation to apply filters defined in an object zone to the current Working Zone is
called computation of the object zone. Object Zones can be computed only when required
(i.e. when used), on user demand, or during Analysis Desktop initialization (auto compute
property). When an object zone is computed (whatever the reason for this computation),
its name is updated to display the number of objects contained in the zone (in parenthesis
after the object zone name).

....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
An object type is associated with object zones to indicate which type of objects is the
result of its computation. For example, an object zone containing cells is called a Cell
Zone. A 2G Cell Zone is an ObjectZone(2G Cell).
If an object zone contains as a filter another object zone, it is called a sub-object zone.
Whenever the parent object zone criteria are changed, the changes are also inherited by
the sub-object zone (i.e. criteria are not copied in the sub-object zone, but a reference to
the parent object zone is kept).
If an object zone contains as a filter criteria a Working Zone, it does not become a
sub-object zone and the Working Zone criteria is not copied (a reference to the Working
Zone is kept).
An object zone can be manipulated as a standard network object. It can be used, for
example, as the topology dimension of an execute view or execute report operation.
Depending on the installed technology plug, some modes can be Zone Modes containing
only Object Zones of a certain type (in GSM, for example, Cell Zone, Traffic Zone and
TRX Zone are dedicated modes). A generic Object Zone mode can also be used and, in
that case, it can contain Object Zones of different types.
For the Traffic Zone mode, the NPO generates one Object Zone (of TRX type) for each
Traffic Zone of each cell. The Traffic Zone mode displays these zones as described below.

Filtering
A list of pre-defined topology filters is associated with each mode. It is possible to apply
all the filters of a mode on any Topology Classification of the concerned mode.
Filters can also be used to restrict the list of displayed objects, by using additional criteria
such as only GPRS.
The operator can apply a filter on any available Topology Classification of the mode, as
follows:
• The criteria defined in the filter are then applied to the chosen classification and this
classification is updated, displaying only the filtered objects
• If a filtered nonleaf object has no child, it is also hidden
• The No Filter option can be used to remove any filter applied to a classification
• Applying a filter on a Topology Classification does not change the other Topology
Classifications.
Whenever some objects are dropped on a filtered classification, if some of the dropped
objects are not visible due to the applied filter, then the user is informed and asked
whether to remove the filter or to ignore the non visible objects.
The following criteria may be used to filter a set of objects:
• QoS criteria, to filter, for example, objects with a bad Call Drop or a low Call Success
• Parameter (Logical and Design) criteria, to filter, for example, objects of a particular
frequency band or class
• Topological criteria, to filter, for example, cells of a particular BSS
• Explicit designation, to focus, for example, on specific cells of high interest
• Free field criteria, to filter, for example, cells according to free fields.
For each type of criteria defined above, you must select a Reference Period and a
Reference Date to define how to apply the criteria.
The following comparison operators can be used as filtering criteria:
• >
• >=
• <

• <=

• != (<>)
• CONTAINS
• DOES_NOT_CONTAIN
• LIKE (foe is like 'f*' but not like 'f*e*o')
• MUSE specific comparison operators such as 'IsGreen()'
• User-defined comparison operators.

Operator Description Example


CONTAINS The operator takes as argument a list Filter criteria on CELL2G otype is:
of values separated by comma. P:(Class CONTAINS
Filter using CONTAINS will return {'RURAL','URBAN'})
all elements whose its value matches It will return all CELL2G objects
to one of the value provided in the having the value of the parameter
list. "Class" equal to 'RURAL' or equal to
'URBAN'.
DOES_NOT_ The operator takes as argument a list Filter criteria on CELL2G otype is:
CONTAIN of values separated by comma. P:(Class DOES_NOT_CONTAIN
Filter using DOES_NOT_CONTAIN {'RURAL','URBAN'})
will return all elements whose its It will return all CELL2G objects
value does not match to any value having the value of the parameter
provided in the list. "Class" which is not equal to 'RURAL'
nor to 'URBAN'.
LIKE The operator takes as argument a Filter criteria on CELL2G otype is:
string, that can have wild character P:(Class LIKE '%URBAN%')
'%'.
It will return all CELL2G objects
Filter using LIKE will return all having the the value of the parameter
elements whose the value contains "Class", containing the string
the provided string. 'URBAN'. (so it can return
DENSE_URBAN and URBAN for
example).

Criteria can also be combined in a filter using the following operators:


• AND
• OR
• Not
• Parenthesis.
The following mathematical operations can be included in the filtering formula:
• +
• -

• *
• /
• % (Modulo)
Example: to filter cells for which I:(Call_Drop_Radio / Call_Drop_BSS > 2).
When defining a filter for objects of type A, it is possible to use criteria of objects of type
B if there is a topological relation between A and B.
It is then possible to filter all cells of a particular BSC or all cells having a particular type
of Traffic Zone. When using descending topology links, the result can be more than one
(i.e. one object has only one father but can have many children). In this case, a particular
topology operator must be used, such as at_least_one_child or all_children.
Examples:
• Cell filter to have only cells with a call_drop (fictional indicator name) higher than
3%:
I:(Call_Drop > 3), where I stands for Indicator.
• Cell filter to have only cells of BSC1:
Filter on BSC and then: T:(OFN = 'BSC1'), where T stands for topology attributes.
• Cell filter to have only cells having only GSM 1800 Traffic Zones:
Filter on Traffic Zone with All Children selected and then P:(InternalCell.frequencyR-
ange__TZ = 'GSM1800'), where P stands for Parameter.
• Define a filter criteria using CONTAINS and DOES_NOT_CONTAIN operators:
P:(azimuthAntennaAngle>5) AND P:(cellClass CONTAINS *{*'URBAN'*}*)
P:(azimuthAntennaAngle>5) AND P:(cellClass DOES_NOT_CONTAIN
*{*'URBAN'*}*)

QoS for object zone


The object zone can be dragged and dropped in the viewer. In this case, the object zone
behaves as a single object.
Spatial aggregation is used to calculate the indicator value over the object zone.

Procedure 5-1: Compute object zone


Object zones that are auto computed can be recomputed in the same manner as described
below. Computation of an object zone also takes into consideration the soft-deleted
network objects.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

1 Select an object zone in the object zone tree.


Result: The object zone is selected.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................

2 Perform one of the following:


• Right click and select Compute, OR
• From the menu, select Topology -> Compute Object Zone.
Result: The Analysis Desktop computes the object zone and the object zone tree is
updated to indicate the number of objects contained in the zone in parenthesis after its
name.
If Include numerical errors (NErr) is unchecked, then the computation of the
Object Zone excludes objects for which a criteria of the Object Zone cannot be
computed (returns the NErr value because of a division by zero).
Examples:
• Call drop > 5% and Include NErr unchecked: the OZ contains all cells that have
a call drop greater than 5%.
• Call drop > 5% and Include NErr checked: the OZ contains all cells that have a
call drop greater than 5% as well as cells for which call drop cannot be computed
(value = NErr).

Presentation
The Topology Classification defines how Network Objects are classified in a tree
structure, depending on the selected mode.
Topology Classifications are specific to the used technology.
Topology Classifications can be:
• System, as defined by Alcatel-Lucent
• Customer, when defined by the user (see Procedure 6-2: “Create topology
classification” (p. 6-8) or Procedure 6-3: “Create topology classification by copy”
(p. 6-11)).
Note: If parameters are not loaded for all topology objects, there can be different
number of objects in topology classifications for a certain mode. Also, if one of the
OMCs is undeclared, the same situation may appear (the objects of that OMC will no
longer be displayed in the OMC classification for example).
The correct number of objects appears in the All classification of any mode.
The network objects of a mode can be classified according to their values of selected
parameters and/or according to their parent or related objects and/or according to their
values of topology parameters and /or free fields.
The following figure presents a cell topology classification based on parameter
“Frequency_Range”.

The cells are displayed in the corresponding classification according to their value of the
parameter(s) selected for building the classification. To allow to immediately see which
parameter(s) is (are) used for the topology classification, the parameter label
(“Frequency_Range”) is displayed between parenthesis after the parameter value of the
classification node, for instance: EGSM900 (Frequency_Range).

Drag the required object attributes and topology objects from the right panel, and drop
them to the topology classification tree. The drop is based on:
• Relations and attributes of objects
• Relations of parent child.
Dropping object attributes and topology objects on a node makes them parent of that
node. If a drop is not allowed, the cursor shows the icon.
Validation occurs when dragging, therefore the example tree is immediately updated.
If you import free fields from the NPO Administration page while in the Analysis
Desktop the Topology Classification Editor is used, you must refresh the free fields tree in
order to see and work with the imported free fields. For more details about the import of
free fields, refer to the NPO Administration User Guide document, to Import free fields
using GUI.
The maximum number of allowed levels in a topology classification is set by default to
six.
When defining the levels of the desired classifications, the following rules must be
respected:
• The first level cannot be changed. It is always the Working Zone.
• All intermediate levels can be Topology Objects or Object Attributes
• Leaves are always the Object Type of the mode for which the topology classification
is defined
• Topology Objects or Object Attributes cannot be used twice in the same Topology
Classification (i.e. not possible to define RNC->Cell->RNC).
• A child object cannot be dropped over a parent object.
The resulting tree has collapsible and expandable nodes containing example data.
The user determines for each defined level (except for the first and the last levels) if the
associated level is displayed or not in the classification by checking the checkbox in front
of the considered level. If the checkbox is unchecked, the considered level is hidden in
the classification. If the (n) level is hidden in the classification, then in the upper level
(n-1), the (n+1) level objects are displayed grouped by (n) level.
To remove a selected node, click on .
As for all classifications, non-leaves levels are displayed using a (configurable) icon
indicating if the branch is open or not .
Also, the associated icons appear for the dragged objects.

1 In the Topology Classification Editor window, from the left frame, select the topology
classification to copy, then click on .
Result: The new topology classification is created with a default name:
<oldname>_Copy_n, where n is an incremental number to define a unique name.
Access rights are reset to the default values, but you can change them as required.
You can also modify the topology classification properties if required.
The user becomes the owner of the copied topology classification.
