1. INTRODUCTION Network Planning Play’s a critical role in any cellular design process. Nominal planning is performed to generate basic site count for a new network which forms the foundation stone of that network. By doing a proper Network planning by keeping the future growth plan in mind we can reduce a lot of problem that we may encountered in future and also reduce substantially the cost of optimization once the network will be on full swing. On the other Hand a poorly planned network not only leads to many Network problems, it also increases the Capex and Opex once the network is live. In current low cost/revenue scenario we need to focus on smart and accurate planning to reduce the Capex and Opex during the whole project. Several mechanism and logics are implemented to address such issue which we will discuss in subsequent pages. It is important to remember that local regulation and company policies may change the process or certain step in process. The practices presented in this section serve the purpose of highlighting the important area in RF Design.

1. NETWORK PLANNING AND DESIGN PROCESS.
The RF design process presented is a generic process for Greenfield/New Network. In this section RF designed process is described where as CORE&TRANSMISSION is described in other section. The RF design process consists of Two Phases.

 Preliminary Planning
 Final Design Fed into the RF design process are the design requirements such as link budget and traffic prediction, and the output of the process is the RF system design(location of the cell sites, cell site parameters, coverage prediction, site sketches, drive test data. Steps need to be followed while planning new network • • • CW Testing Model Tuning Nominal Planning RF Survey/Candidate Selection

The receiver scanning rate should be settable so that it satisfies Lee’s law.  Principally each model should have 5 Sites for accurate measurement. These transmitted power levels are then measured and collected by the Drive test kit. Cables and accessories. A GPS to get latitude and longitude.

Receiver to scan the RSS (Received signal levels). – – – – – – • • A single frequency is transmitted a predetermined power level from the candidate site. Antenna (generally Omni ).1. A laptop to collect data. d) Sub Urban e) Industrial. Wattmeter to check VSWR. The objective of CW Drive testing & Model Tuning is: a) To ensure accurate propagation Model b) Aim is to produce Zero Mean Error & Minimize the standard Deviation (Less than equal to 8) Propagaton Test Kit • The propagation test kit consists of – Test transmitter. This data is then loaded on the Planning tool and used for tuning models. however some time it becomes customer dependent. CW Testing The Aim of the CW measurements from field to calibrate Macro cell Propagation Model for Network for different model like a) Dense Urban b) CBD c) Urban. Few customer demands it with 3 sites per model to save the budget.

Steps to Follow while doing CW/Simulation Testing Step s Step1 Step2 Step3 Step4 Activity Site Selection and Route Planning Hardware Installation Drive Testing and Data Collection Drive Length Description This is the important part of CW testing as wrong selection will lead to bad results. After site selection .AC main is required to energize the transmitter Radio receiver will be used to collect field measurement during drive testing. Site selection should be in synch with customer. collected samples fed into the Asset tool for calibration and Model tuning. Steps followed during the model tuning represented in chart as mentioned below. Model Tuning This is the next step after CW sample collection. Since the drive will be conducted at higher frequencies therefore the drive route will less<6Kms as signal disappear after that in higher frequency. Drive tester will maintain average speed of 40 Km/Per Hour to get the better results. transmitter will be installed at site. Confidential – not for circulation Prepared by: Shailendra kumar Page 6 . therefore careful planning is crucial to achieve good results. 2. hardware like Antenna.

Latitude.  Filter the CW data on basis of Distance from Site and RSSI. Clutter Distribution and Regression Analysis.  If targets are met Propagation Model is tuned. There is no single “correct” method of calibrating a model but the process described here is widely used. During calibration data from CW surveys is used to calibrate the propagation models to improve their accuracy.e.  See if the required targets (i. This is achieved by placing a dummy site with the same configuration as that of the CW Transmitter. Mean=0. RMS and Standard Deviation. it has reduced the standard deviation between the propagation model and the CW data) until and unless Mean and Standard Deviation cannot be reduced any further After completing the procedure we get K1 to K7 values which will be used to calculate path loss as shown below. quantify the effect of the change in terms of whether the change was beneficial (i. The metrics used to quantify the error are the Mean. SD<8) are achieved.  Average the CW samples on basis of Rayleigh Fading and Map resolution used.  Note down the Mean and Standard Deviation achieved. Longitude.  One needs to continuously alter the model parameter in question.  Edit CW Properties by entering the Transmitter Antenna details like Type of Antenna being used. Asset allows model parameters to be adjusted to obtain an accurate match between the CW survey data and predictions.  Use AMT (Automatic Model Tuner) to tune the basic Planet General Model.  One can also optionally fine tune the Clutter Absorption Loss(CAL) manually on top of AMT. And Go to Step 6. The generic iterative calibration process can be described as follows:  Import the CW data into Asset.e. Confidential – not for circulation Prepared by: Shailendra kumar Page 7 . re-analyze against the measured data. Azimuth. if not try and alter the Filtering parameters slightly.  Save the Model Tuning report. Power (EiRP) and so on.Introduction RF propagation is based on numerous factors resulting in a very complex process to attempt to model.  Analyze the CW data itself by thoroughly using tools like Histogram Analyses. The overall objective is to minimize the error between the Propagation Model and the Continuous Wave survey data. Transmitter Height. Tilt.

Also examined are constraints and location specific information that would lead to the qualification or disqualification of the chosen location. Equipment room survey consists in drafting a plan of the room where the equipment will be installed.

Information so gathered is input into a site survey report. Release search rings to project management Visit friendly site locations • • If there are friendly/sharing sites available that can be used (infrastructure sharing). then visit these sites first.Sites that will also work as a BSC.Examination of existing towers. • Reset / Review Search Rings • If the prediction shows a coverage hole ( as the actual site may be shifted from the designed site). the surrounding search rings can be resetted and reviewed. Enter Data In Propagation Tool • Enter the sites exact location in the planning tool. surveys should carried out and at least 3 suitable site candidates identified. Perform Propagation Analysis • Now since the site has been selected and the lat/lon of the actual site ( which will be different from the designed site) is known. Select Initial Anchor Sites • Initial anchor sites are the sites which are very important for the network buildup. If these sites suite the design requirements. Release the search ring with details like radius of search ring. Eg . Confidential – not for circulation Prepared by: Shailendra kumar Page 13 .

BAD SITE SELECTION • • • • Uncontrolled interference Interleaved coverage Awkward HO behaviours But are good for microwave links Confidential – not for circulation Prepared by: Shailendra kumar Page 14 .

Details must include: » » » » Site name and option letter Site location (Lat.Otherwise this will create problem in future • Site Location • • Proper site location determines usefulness of its cells.

GOOD SITE SELECTION • Sites off hilltop locations are preferable for a BTS site as  hills can be used to separate cells  interference can be easily controlled  minimum overlapping will result  can face problems for microwave links Desired cell boundary b) SITE SELECTION CRITERIA Radio criteria for site selection • Good view in the main beam direction Confidential – not for circulation Prepared by: Shailendra kumar Page 15 .
