Organization
1 Introduction to KPI This describes the KPI, which is used to monitor the network performance and detect network problems. 2 CS Accessibility KPIs This describes the CS accessibility KPIs that mainly indicate the call success rate when a MS accesses the network. Low accessibility KPIs directly lead to low user satisfaction. 3 CS Retainability KPIs This describes the CS Retainability KPIs that indicate the ratio of moving MSs to all MSs, the moving frequency, and the success rate of handovers on the move. In addition, these KPIs indicate the capability of providing continuous services. A low handover success rate may lead to a high call drop rate. A low success rate leads to low user satisfaction. 4 CS Resource Utilization KPIs This describes the CS Resource Utilization KPIs that are used to monitor the load of hot cells and the network. These KPIs can serve as references for capacity expansion. The traffic volume KPIs help to obtain the ratio of busy-hour traffic to idle-hour traffic, to evaluate the utilization of system resources, and to adjust charges. The equipment availability KPIs help to know the running status of equipment, such as the running status of channels. If these KPIs are low, equipment and transmission may be faulty. 5 PS Throughput KPIs This describes the PS Throughput KPIs that are used to monitor the load of hot cells and the network and to obtain service models. These KPIs can serve as references for capacity expansion. The PS Throughput KPIs help to obtain the busy-hour PS traffic and the idle-hour PS traffic, to evaluate the utilization of system resources, and to facilitate service assessment of carriers. 6 PS Transmission KPIs This describes the PS Transmission KPIs that indicate the quality of radio transmission links in a cell. If the RLC data block retransmission rate in a cell is high, the quality of the radio transmission links in the cell is poor. Therefore, take corresponding measures, such as RF optimization. 7 PS Accessibility KPIs This describes the PS Accessibility KPIs that indicate whether MSs can easily access cells. Poor PS Accessibility KPIs directly affect user satisfaction. 8 PS Resource Utilization KPIs This describes the PS Resource Utilization KPIs that indicate the utilization of the network resource and the busy states of services. Thus, these KPIs can be used to guide network expansion. 9 PS Retainability KPIs This describes the PS Retainability KPIs that mainly involve the uplink and downlink TBF call drop rates. These KPIs indicate the capability of providing continuous services by the network and are directly related to user satisfaction. Thus, an increase in call drop rate directly leads to a decrease in user satisfaction.

About This Document

10 PS End-to-End Delay KPIs This describes the PS End-to-End Delay KPIs that indicate the service response speed of the network. Long delay affects user satisfaction. 11 PS End-to-End Quality KPIs This describes the PS end-to-end quality KPIs. They involve the performance factors associated with the terminals, the radio access network, and the core network. Now, the main performance problem is concerned with the radio access network. Therefore, these KPIs indicate the end-toend service data link bearing capability of the GPRS network, which are directly related to user satisfaction.

Introduction to KPI

This describes the KPI, which is used to monitor the network performance and detect network problems.

Measurement object: indicates the measurement scope of a KPI, such as BSC level, PCU level, or cell level. Measurement set: describes the signaling or algorithm of collecting a KPI, such as call access and TBF establishment. Measurement service: indicates the service type of a KPI, such as CS service or PS service.

l

Measurement Set
Figure 1-1 shows the measurement set of the CS domain performance counters. Call measurement and channel measurement are very important. Most of performance counters are distributed in the two measurement sets.

About This Chapter

CS Retainability KPIs

This describes the CS Retainability KPIs that indicate the ratio of moving MSs to all MSs, the moving frequency, and the success rate of handovers on the move. In addition, these KPIs indicate the capability of providing continuous services. A low handover success rate may lead to a high call drop rate. A low success rate leads to low user satisfaction. 3.1 TCH Call Drop Rate(including Handovers) 3.2 TCH Call Drop Rate (Excluding Handover) 3.3 Traffice Volume to Call Drops 3.4 TCH RF Lost Rate 3.5 TCH Handover Lost Rate 3.6 Handover Success Rate 3.7 Handover RF Success Rate 3.8 Intra-BSC Handover Success Rate 3.9 Inter-BSC Incoming Cell Handover Success Rate 3.10 Inter-BSC Outgoing Cell Handover Success Rate 3.11 Intra-BSC Handover RF Success Rate 3.12 Inter-BSC Incoming Cell Radio Handover Success Rate 3.13 Inter-BSC Outgoing Cell Radio Handover Success Rate 3.14 Dual-Band Handover Success Rate(900/850-1800/1900) 3.15 Dual-Band Handover Success Rate(1800/1900-900/850) 3.16 Call Success Rate

CS Resource Utilization KPIs

This describes the CS Resource Utilization KPIs that are used to monitor the load of hot cells and the network. These KPIs can serve as references for capacity expansion. The traffic volume KPIs help to obtain the ratio of busy-hour traffic to idle-hour traffic, to evaluate the utilization of system resources, and to adjust charges. The equipment availability KPIs help to know the running status of equipment, such as the running status of channels. If these KPIs are low, equipment and transmission may be faulty. 4.1 TCH Traffic Volume 4.2 SDCCH Traffic Volume 4.3 TCHH Traffic Volume 4.4 TCH Availablity 4.5 TRX Availability 4.6 SDCCH Availability

10.1 PING Delay
Table 10-1 PING Delay Counter Description PING Delay The PING delay is the difference between the time when the MS sends an ICMP packet of the Return Request type and the time when the receiving end responds with an ICMP packet of the Return Acknowledgment type. Two types of PING delay are available: initial PING delay and consecutive PING delay.
l

Initial PING delay If the interval between two consecutive PING operations is longer than 9000 ms, the MS enters the Packet Idle Mode. If the PING operation is re-initiated, the TBF established on the CCCH is used. Therefore, the initial PING delay is longer. Consecutive PING delay If the interval between two consecutive PING operations is shorter than 500 ms, the PCU uses the uplink delay release or downlink delay release policy. This avoids the TBF establishment for the following PING operations or the TBF re-establishment on the PACCH. This PING delay is relatively shorter.

The GPRS throughput focuses mainly on the throughput at the RLC/MAC layer and the throughput at the application layer. The test of the throughput at the RLC/MAC layer is difficult. Therefore, the throughput we discuss generally refers to the throughput at the application layer. The throughput at the RLC/MAC layer is generally higher than that at the application layer. None BSC For a single cell, the call quality test (CQT) method is adopted; for multiple cells, the drive test (DT) method is adopted.
