Calculation method of UL-DL balance in existing Network
PB=actual DL level average—actual UL level average
1. Combiner Level 1 is adopted in judgment criteria. If other combining methods but Combiner Level 1 are adopted in the existing network, like no adoption of combiner or two-levels of combiner, combiner difference shall be compensated to fulfill the judgment conditions stipulated in the criteria; If TA is installed, it’s interference must be eliminated to meet judgment conditions;

2.

If no TA is installed in the antenna system, there is no need to consider about its influence; Influence of external TA on antenna system shall be taken into consideration. TA falls into two types: one-way TA (UL, usually referred as TMA) and two-way TA (UL-DL, usually referred as Booster). If it’s twoway TA, the influence on UL and DL will be cancelled out. If it’s one-way TA, influence on UL and DL shall be considered respectively;

3.

If coverage enhancement technique is adopted, the gain produced by it shall be eliminated.

Correction of UL-DL level average
  influence from dynamic power control In ZTE the cell measurement is as for MS UL signal receive level in 900M cell, its value in calculation is 10dB larger than its real value, because of the influence from dynamic power control. Therefore, in statistics, the value of MS UL signal receive level shall be reduced by 10dB accordingly. influence from UL channel gain In BTS V2_TRM calculation formula, there is a difference of 14dB between the UL level statistical value and that of DTRU/ETRM. This is because the UL channel receive gain on TRM module is 14dB higher than that of the following ETRM/DTRU modules, the 14dB shall be deducted in PB calculation.

Calculation method of UL-DL balance
In calculation of UL-DL balance of existing network, information in Tale 3-3 needs to be obtained.
Table ‎ -3 Influencing factors in UL-DL balance calculation 1 Influencing factors Explanations

Frequency band of existing network Model of BTS products used & modulation method adopted Combining method adopted If external TA installed? If coverage enhancement technique adopted?

There is a difference of 3dB in judgment criteria due to different frequency bands; Because the BtsTxPwrMax is different, judgment criteria for different BTS products are different; Combiner level 1 is adopted in the judgment criteria. CduLoss difference caused by other combining methods shall be eliminated. In the judgment criteria, default is NO TA; if external TA is installed, its influence on ULDL shall be eliminated. The gain produced by coverage enhancement technique shall also be eliminated.
