no full power is sent after HO.Interference. If Power is reduced → no bad UL problems. By POC parameter interference can be decreased. Bad quality sample due to coverage problems. Also optimum MS power feature improves UL interference. Diversity should be checked. UL MS power control can be seen here. Antenna place should be also checked if there are some obstacles near the antenna. Soc Classification level 2 © Nokia Siemens Networks . how power is adjusted etc. also possibilities to use LNA to improve UL coverage. BSC border is increasing good level samples Bad interference problems.

These kind of cells must be investigated. UL. Cells is not working properly. MS is adjusting power properly. UL power control is not working properly. examples Some UL interference in good signal level. there are no big problems in UL direction There is no UL interfernce. UL quality/ UL level HO’s are triggering immediately. it is like transferring traffic.Interference. there are only little samples in good UL signal level. Ul power control is good indicator. Soc Classification level 3 © Nokia Siemens Networks . if power is adjusted. Huge amount of UL bad samples. or just little.

If better cell available and quality samples are 4 or worse → HO (reason quality or interference. If PBGT overlapping is not existing → lots of quality HOs + level HOs (margin are lower than in PBGT). more coverage problem. . HOs → are better cells available or not. depends on the parameter) Interference is causing drops.. By parameter amount of quality HOs can be adjusted Bad quality samples due to coverage problems.Interference. Not interference problem. In these signal levels overlapping exists and if handover reason is no PBGT. Soc Classification level 4 © Nokia Siemens Networks Check how much samples vs..q7 samples → better cell is available → no interference problems. Bad interference problem → signal level good (<-80dBm) and sometimes no better cell available. Situation is “network is working properly” If there are quality 4 or worse samples → quality HO. If lots of q5. it will be quality HO. Most of the samples are q4 samples. Interference is causing drops. If quality HOs but no q5. DL Really bad interference problem → signal level is really good (<-70dBm) and usually no better cell available → no HO → samples can be seen in the table.q7 samples → interference problem and interference must be analyzed / removed.

examples There are almost as much samples Q5 and Q7 samples as Q 4 samples → even interference is really bad or there is no better cell available ( no ho’s after bad quality samples). for example sampling is Q0.Q2.Q4. otherwise there are lots of drops etc There are no as much Q5…Q7 samples as Q4 samples → after interference samples Quality HO is done or the interference situation is not so bad.Q2 → quality HO is not triggering There are bad quality samples only due to coverage problems.Q2.Interference. Soc Classification level 5 © Nokia Siemens Networks .Q0.Q4.Q3. These kind of interference cells should be optimized.Q5. DL.Q2.
