Nemo Outdoor Introduction
Nemo Outdoor™ 5.0 currently supporting measurements on LTE, WiMAX, HSDPA, HSUPA, TDSCDMA, UMA, CDMA2000, 1xEV-DO, TETRA, cdmaOne, GSM, GPRS, EDGE, DVB-H and WCDMA networks. Nemo Outdoor’s powerful platform is expandable beyond current trends to those of the future, and all of this materializes on one single platform. With Nemo Outdoor you can perform not only drive testing but also QoS and benchmarking (Supporting up to 6 UE simultaneous connection) measurements. Nemo Outdoor’s flexibility further manifests itself in its open log file format which enables the customer to integrate in its optimization processes the use of not only the upscale Anite’s postprocessing tool Nemo Analyze™ , but also those of third-party vendors. Nemo Outdoor supports more than 130 test terminals and scanning receivers. (Eg: Nokia N96, N612x, Qualcomm based Handset and Datacard (Huawei E270, Sierra Wireless Aircard 880, Option Globetrotter HSPA etc) and Scanner (DTI Ex Scanner, Anritsu ML8720 etc))

Normally when a data transfer is initialized. With passive mode. The FTP module supports firewall-friendly passive mode transfers. the server opens a new connection to the client and then data is transferred through this connection. The server can be any standard FTP server.Data Measurements – FTP • • • Nemo Outdoor has an integrated FTP client. which can be used to measure data transfer rates between Nemo Outdoor and the FTP server. • . the client always opens those new connections so the firewall does not block the connection. Current data throughput and transferred data size are reported during transfer. and in that case the data transfer would fail. Some firewalls may be configured to refuse any incoming connection requests.

If delay is less than ping delay new request is sent immediately after reply Delay from reply to request: New ping is sent after reply is received Delay between requests Ping request Ping replay Ping request Delay from replay to request Ping request Ping replay Ping request • Example: RTT time is 100ms and “delay from reply to request” is set to 1 s. New request is sent every 1. If “delay between request” is selected new request is sent every 1000ms Example: RTT time is 100ms and “delay from reply to request” is set to 50ms.1s (100ms + 1000ms).Data Measurements – ICMP Ping II • • • • • Ping rate configuration in milliseconds instead of seconds Delay between request: Protocol always waits reply before sending new request. If “delay between request” is selected new request is sent every 100ms because protocol always wait reply before sending new request . New request is sent every 150ms (100ms + 50ms).

Route planning was introduced originally with outdoor maps. Now the same feature is available also with indoor floor plans. It is a convenient way to plan a measurement route beforehand. The route plan can be saved and modified afterwards.

Ending Measurements
The measurement is being recorded when a REC text appears in the upper right corner of the main window. Follow these instructions to stop the measurement.
If you are using a script to perform the measurement, you can either wait until the script file has been executed or interrupt the script either by selecting Measurement | Stop Script or by clicking the Stop button on the toolbar. If you are performing measurements manually, the measurement process is terminated either by selecting Measurement | Stop or by clicking the Stop button on the toolbar. In both alternatives, the Stop button on the toolbar will be inactivated and the Start Recording button activated. All the ongoing calls will be stopped and scanning will be terminated (Frequency Scan mode). Data transfers will be stopped, PDP context will be deactivated, and GPRS detach will be performed. Nemo Outdoor will display a report window with some call statistics. At this point, you can choose if you would like to save this file or delete it. You can also start a playback of this file. If you wish to exit Nemo Outdoor, select File | Exit or click the cross in the upper right corner of the Nemo Outdoor main window.

Log File PlayBack
Playback is a handy tool for doing a quick analysis of measurements. You can playback files anytime and anywhere immediately after the measurement has been finished or later on. When you open a file for playback, Nemo Outdoor will deactivate all connected devices. Nemo Outdoor will ask if you would like to save the current device. If you answer Yes, Nemo Outdoor will save the current configuration and reactivate the devices that you had connected before the playback when you close the playback file(s). Internet: www.
