Case study of WCDMA R99/HSPA for planet v5.

Set and configure soft launch site/sectors Define subscriber setting
equipment, service, subscriber type

Define environment Create traffic map based on #sub or throughput demand Run Monte Carlo for R99 and HSDPA carriers Analyze Monte Carlo results
# served subscriber Throughput per sector Examine unserved subscriber reasons

Apply Monte Carlo cell load and re-run Network analysis

CPICH pollution Area coverage % of different bearer

1a soft launch site/sectors group

Group Mongkok_ wcdma (green)

Each sector has carrier 1 and 3, both R99 + HSPA carriers Activate carrier 1 as R99 ONLY Activate carrier 3 as HSPA ONLY

1b configure sectors for R99 carrier

Use max 472 OVSF for R99 only traffic for carrier 1, with #R99 users = 100

1c configure sectors for HSPA carrier

Use max 472 OVSF for R99 only traffic for carrier 3 with max # HS-DSCH codes=10 and max # HSPA user = 2

2a setup R99 and HSPA bearer

Define R99 DL and UL bearer for required Eb/No at FER=xxx%

Define HSDPA DL bearer HS-DSCH Ec/Nt Define HSUPA UL bearer E-DCH Ec/Nt

2b setup equipment

Both HSPA equipment, where WCDMA-R99 MS has ALL R99 bearer but no HSDPA bearer WCDMA-data-dongel has ALL R99 bearer + HSDPA bearer

2c setup services
2x CS services (12.2K voice and 64K data) with specified individual loading and DL activity factor=50%

3x PS services (164K/128/384K data) with specified individual loading and DL activity factor=100%

2d setup subscriber types

R99 subscriber for outdoor usage for CS services with higher priority (1)

HSPA subscriber for indoor usage for PS services with lower priority (2)

10x scaling factor for BOTH subscriber type to overspread subscriber from traffic map (i.e., to spread as many subscriber as possible)

3 setup environment
Enter fast/slow fading margin map default 4x planet clutter type to clutter names from map e.g., disable some clutter, no indoor for water clutter set clutter dependent DL orthogonal % (100% = no intra-cell interference, 0% = intra is same as inter-cell interference)


4a Create traffic map

Tabulate site ID/sector ID/ # of sub as an excel file (ie.. Traffic target per sector) Import excel file to planet and map column
Import excel to operational data


4b Create traffic map

Create CPICH best server

Create traffic map with unit #sub/km2 and select CPICH best server within mongkok area


4c Create traffic map

assign different weight factor per clutter class and generate traffic map


5a Run Monte Carlo

Run MC for 2x subscriber type within mongkok test area, and wait for MC run to converge within 5%

Distribution of spread subscriber after MC runs converged after MC result is checked OK, apply cell loading (i.e., write traffic power % and noise rise back to sector config)


5b Examine Monte Carlo results

Subscriber per sector/carrier examine block reason and # served/unserved subscriber compare unserved % with KPI

CDF of # served subscriber


5b Examine Monte Carlo results

PDF of throughput Global throughput MC report for different service/environment


5c Examine Monte Carlo results

Sort # served subscriber (from largest to smallest) for 1 combination of carrier/sub type/service/environment

Create sector display scheme to represent # served sub, apply to sector on map windows


6a CPICH pollution at environment xx and subscriber equipment xx

CPICH pollution between cells (at low CPICH Ec/Io, where no dominant CPICH presents), typically resolve by increasing antenna downtilt


6b coverage % for different bearer

Optional map input to add extra columns in statistics report (e.g., best server grc, traffic map)

Create statistics report based on HS-DSCH max achievable data rate and with Analysis area = mongkok_area Classified grid = best server grc file Traffic map = xxx Step size of data rate = 32k, 64k, 128k, 384k, 1M, 2M, 3M as different ranges

6c coverage % for different bearer

e.g., top 10x sector with highest coverage area % within polygon within 2M~3M data rate range

e.g., area coverage % for different bearer of HS-DSCH
