TEMS CEL File FORMAT

TEMS CEL-file field XEUS Table field Required


Cell CellId & SiteId Mandatory and has to be unique
for each record
Lat or Latitude Latitude Mandatory. Must be in decimal
format e.g. 13.23232 or -12.2323
Lon or Longitude Longitude Mandatory. Must be in decimal
format e.g 123.23232 or
-121.232432
MCC MCC
MNC MNC
LAC LAC Mandatory for GSM cell
RA Rac
CI CI Mandatory for GSM cell
CI_N_n This field will be used to get the
neighbor relation
ANT_DIRECTION or ANT DIR AntDir Mandatory
or ANT ORIENTATION
ANT_BEAM_WIDTH AntBW
ANT_TYPE AntType
ANT_HEIGHT AntHeight
ANT_TILT AntTilt
CELL_TYPE CellType
UARFCN ARFCN
SC SC
RNC-ID RncId Mandatory for WCDMA cell
RNC-ID_N_n Not Available Not supported. For neighbor
relation use CI_N_n only
C-ID CId Mandatory for WCDMA cell
C-ID_N_n Not Available Not supported. For neighbor
relation use CI_N_n only
LAC_N_n Not Available Not suported. For neighbor relation
use CI_N_n only
URA Info3
TIME_OFFSET Info1
CPICH_POWER CpichPower
MAX_TX_POWER Info2
NODE_B SiteId
NODE_B_STATUS CellStatus
ARFCN ARFCN
BSIC BSIC
TCH_ARFCN_n Not Available Not supported

Neighbor information is retrieved using CI_N_n field only. Data from LAC_N_n, RNC-ID_N_n and
C-ID_N_n is not used. It is important to have unique CI field to avoid wrong neighbor definition.

Implementation Note
• User can import more than one TEMS Cel-file
• The TEMS Cel-file should have a valid file header
• Each TEMS Cel-file can contain combination of WCDMA and GSM Cell
• Any cell data found to have same CellId in the project database and importing TEMS
Cell file will be removed prior to import.
• User has an option to remove all Site configuration data prior to import. This includes
both GSM and WCDMA data. If user chooses to import carrier and neighbor data also,
selecting this option will also remove alll carrier and neighbor data from the project
database prior to import.
• All the mandatory parameters should present

Parsing Error Type


• Empty file
• File that has invalid file header
• File that does not has one of the mandatory parameters
• Ambiguous records (record that is non-identifiable in terms of Technology Band)
• Duplicate CellId in the imported TEMS CEL file
• Duplicate CellId with existing data
Cell that has empty or 0 value in Longitude or Latitude
