it has been possible to colour code the base station icons based on any data in the BTS reference file. such as cell name or cell ID. highlighting the problem cells on the map. Following two pictures show an example where base station icons have been colour coded based on whether they were measured during a drive test or not.com/nemo . Joining can be done using only one column that uniquely identifies the cell. Configuring line drawing to BTS icon on map 2. such as cell name. This kind of view can be used to spot missing neighbours and sleeping cells. all the matching BTS icons will be colour coded. cell ID.Picture 4. a custom KPI that returns number of dropped calls per cell can be visualized on the map by colour coding the BTS icons based on the number of dropped calls. 6 Kiviharjunlenkki 1D | FI-90220 Oulu | Finland | tel. that is. Select Properties Color tab -> Select mode as “custom” from the drop-down menu Select the custom query to be visualized Select query columns containing BTS information that corresponds with the contents of the BTS file. If these parameters are not available in the query results. its colour coding can be configured from the layer properties of the BTS reference file: Right-click on the BTS layer in Layers section of the side panel. +358 50 395 7700 | fax +358 8 551 6183 | www.13 allows base stations to be colour coded based on any parameter that contains the necessary BTS identity information.

State machine transition with AND/OR conditions Another improvement is in the KPI workbench filter node.7 KPI workbench improvements The state machine in the KPI workbench has been improved in Nemo Analyze 5. For example. See picture below for example. Picture 11.com/nemo . this could be used to create a custom st root cause analysis KPI for dropped calls: State transition from “OK” to “Pilot pollution” WHEN 1 AS RSCP st >= -95 AND 1 AS Ec/N0 <= -10.

The KPIs are also included in the new CDMA/EVDO report workbooks. Pictures below show examples of the KPIs. Picture 13.2.13: • EVDO AT/AN connection attempt success and failure events • EVDO AT/AN connection release event • EVDO soft/softer handover status • CDMA soft/softer handover status (requires BTS reference file) These KPIs are available in the Parameter Tree.

and to plot correlation between MOS and different radio parameter in scatter plot. average values of the key RF parameters over the MOS sample time period are returned. and the handover duration are returned. They return a table with row per DL MOS score.13 contains following new troubleshooting KPIs for GSM and UMTS: • MOS DL analysis GSM and UMTS • MOS DL analysis GSM and UMTS limited parameter set • MOS DL analysis GSM • UMTS to GSM missing neighbour analysis • Problem events All MOS DL analysis KPIs follow the same principle. and it scales better to big data sets. These KPIs can be used to find the reason for low MOS. +358 50 395 7700 | fax +358 8 551 6183 | www.

KPIs can be also used as input in KPI workbench for further analysis. 12 Kiviharjunlenkki 1D | FI-90220 Oulu | Finland | tel. For each MOS score. The KPI “MOS DL analysis GSM and UMTS limited parameter set” contains only few of the most important RF KPIs. These KPIs do not scale over datasets of several tens of hours. Also the number of handovers during the MOS sample.

UMTS to GSM missing neighbour analysis Problem events KPI lists all problem events (dropped calls. failed handovers. The KPI can be visualized as a grid.com/nemo . or on a map as a colour-coded route and/or print value. etc.) found from the measurement data.

For each missing neighbour case. 13 Kiviharjunlenkki 1D | FI-90220 Oulu | Finland | tel.anite. +358 50 395 7700 | fax +358 8 551 6183 | www. Picture 18.

anite. Another example could be a folder that contains 10 files uploaded into the database most recently. Such folder can be used to quickly find the files loaded at the beginning of the post-processing session from a database of hundreds of files. Adding search folder to retrieve previously uploaded or measured log files 14 Kiviharjunlenkki 1D | FI-90220 Oulu | Finland | tel. For example.Picture 19. it is possible to create a folder containing all files measured during last day counting from the time of folder creation or refresh.com/nemo . Problem events on map and grid 2. +358 50 395 7700 | fax +358 8 551 6183 | www.10 New search folder options Search folder can be set to filter the most recently measured or uploaded files. Nemo Analyze could be configured to upload new files into the database every night from a network folder. Picture 20. Existing folders can be refreshed any time to update after loading new files. This kind of folder is useful when automating file uploading and report execution with Event scheduler. For example. and finally to run a report over the folder. gather them to a folder containing the latest uploaded files.

Grid with Boolean search operators 2. etc. It is now possible to remove a randomly selected set of log files from the database with a single mouse click. Helps with the problem where a part of the route goes missing with some zoom levels • • • 15 Kiviharjunlenkki 1D | FI-90220 Oulu | Finland | tel. Parameter filter improved to apply for some of the columns missing earlier.g. it will show up automatically in the workspace without having to load it or restart Analyze.13 Other improvements • • • • • Workbook execution can be interrupted with new “Cancel all” button. Call disconnect status. Improved drill-down clicking accuracy on the map.13: • Handover and cell reselection events in inter-system change • RACH AICH status parameter • RRC connection setup time • Spreading factor downlink • RLC throughput DL/UL • BLER DL and UL RLC retransmission rate • FER actual 2. PDP activation time”. and export is as Excel file into a network folder with the Event scheduler. It is possible to automatically run a Crystal reports template.2.12 Improved search functionality in the grid In the grid search it is now possible to use Google-style Boolean operators to combine multiple different search conditions. When e. Scheduled report export to excel in Event scheduler. Automatic update of “Report folder” section of the workspace based on the hard drive directory. such as “Call setup time”. +358 50 395 7700 | fax +358 8 551 6183 | www. Possibility to delete all files in a folder from database.com/nemo . Double-clicking on the map on a problem event to perform a drill-down. a new Excel report template is created. the route location cursor can be hidden for better visual appearance of the report Possibility to disable route drawing optimization.11 Improvements in TEMS support Following new parameters are parsed from the TEMS log files in Nemo Analyze 5.
