Single site verification Single site verification will focus on data server more than anything else:  throughput test  Ping delay test  General test should be done. UDP is more suitable than TCP. Note: For the throughput test.. Huawei Confidential Page 6 . because TCP’s send windows always change. that will affect the test result. signal distribution and so on.

cross coverage should be the main problem for RF optimization. HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO.RF Optimization Difficulty   Share the antenna with 2/3G Use special antenna.. and can be remote controlled. Try to control the network topology is more important than the others. which have separate control part between 2G/3G and LTE. LTD. Huawei Confidential Page 9 .   Sensitivity for the interference Because LTE reuse the frequency by 1.

is determined for a considered cell as the linear average over the power 3GPP definition contributions (in [W]) of the resource elements that carry cellspecific reference signals within the considered measurement frequency bandwidth. HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO.RSRP Reference signal received power (RSRP). Therefore..  Note: Different from WCDMA systems. LTD. Huawei Confidential Page 10 . the measured pilot signal strength is the RSRP of RE(resource element) not the total bandwidth power of the frequency. LTE systems have multiple subcarriers multiplexed.

PCFICHs. LTD. LTE uses PA and PB parameters to adjust power. A larger bandwidth will result in lower power of each subcarrier. This setting optimizes network performance and ensures that the pilot power for Type A and Type B symbols is equivalent to the service channel power. and therefore the transmit power of each subcarrier depends on the configured system bandwidth (such as 5 MHz and 10 Definitions in 3GPP specifications MHz). PB can be set to 2 or 3 dB to enhance coverage. PDSCH power is calculated based on PA and PB. the pilot power for symbols including pilot symbols accounts for 1/3. PHICHs. For two antennas. for example. in rural scenarios requiring low edge rates. ρA: indicates the ratio of the data subcarrier power of OFDM symbols excluding pilot symbols to the pilot subcarrier power. it is recommended that PB be set to 1 dB and PA be set to -3 dB. Currently.. That is. primary synchronization channels. Huawei Confidential Page 11 .Power Adjustment Method Subcarriers share the transmit power of an eNodeB. Control channels Power of PDCCHs. Service power configuration (calculating PDSCH power based on RS power) RS power PA and PB are delivered using RRC signaling. and secondary synchronization channels is set using an offset from RS power. PA is ρA and ρB is calculated based on the right table. PBCHs. ρB: indicates the ratio of the data subcarrier power of OFDM symbols including pilot symbols to the pilot subcarrier power. In scenarios with special requirements. HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO.

When an eNB cell is configured as neighbor cells of other eNBs. LTD. the system will choose the target eNB..Handover  No RNC/BSC.  System send the frequency information to the terminal instead of neighbor cells list. terminal scan the frequency quality and feed back to eNB. HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO. Huawei Confidential Page 12 . external cells must be added first.
