3G-Accomplished task

P_0011
ACCOMPLISHED TASK : summary
Worst cell analysis
Five team are dedicated to handle worst cells per each RNCs .
With this approach top 10 worst cell per each RNC are selected each day .
RF resource limitation like Channel element license and cell transmit power was the most contributing factor for
accessibility problem on most of top worst cells .
As mitigation action for worst performing cells with respect to IRAT HOSR , neighbor optimization and handover
threshold parameter optimization is performed .
Unreasonable transmit power configuration on some cells are found and rectified .
WBPP board expansion proposal was prepared to mitigate UL CE limitation on site 111063 .

Customer complaint handling


Many customer complaint was received from both internal and external customers .
Drive test was conducted to study the service quality around Jimo , Hana Mariam , Lem-Hotel (Kuteba ) ,Kotebe teachers
college , Bole area commercial branch office . Accordingly antenna adjustment and relocation proposal was prepared .
For some of the complaint area RF resource was the issue for service performance degradation . Kotebe teachers
college customer complaint was associated with CE resource limitation and accordingly CE reshuffling action was taken .

ACTION ONE : Accessibility performance improvement plan
CE Reshuffling
Problem Description :
As part of worst cell analysis and optimization the following two site are found with low call setup performance due to
Downlink CE limitation on RNC-101.
Action Taken :
Action Type Execution time Purpose Remark
Deletion and addition of DL CE August 18 ,2015 Mitigation action to address DL CE
license : Sept 18, 2015 license problem on Site 112160 and
Addition : Site ID 112160 , 111058 111058 by shifting license from less
Deletion : Site ID 111587 , 111036 utilized site (111587 ,111036)

Exhibit Four :
After the CE reshuffling action the
Call setup success rate illustrated
in green shows improvement
On top of this except for one day
the DL CE resource utilization is
also decreased .

CE Reshuffling
Exhibit five :

The DL CE rejection after the change is made on Sep 18 ,2015 decreased significantly but it get back its momentum on Sept 21 .
The site is found around Legahar and the utilization gets its peak on week days .

Next Action :
Legar Area site 111058 needs further optimization .

ACTION THREE : Parameter optimization
TCP power optimization
Problem Description :
One sites is found with wrong max transmission power configuration for its one sector . As a result of this the sector stop
supporting traffic .
Action Taken :
Action Type Execution time Purpose Remark
Matching the max transmit power Sep 10 ,2015 The max power configured for each cell The TCP power congestion
configured for the cell to the license was 40 W but the number of license per resulted due to decreasing power
distributed for the site . (112234 Cell ID 20W was 2 . Hence The max power should be mitigated .
-36925 ) U222 decreased to 20W .

Result :
After the configuration is corrected the cell starts its service .

Next Action :
To mitigate the TCP power congestion RF optimization will be done .

ACTION TWO : Mobility performance improvement plan
2G Neighbor optimization
Problem Description :
Most of the IRAT HOSR problem is associated with physical channel failure . And this is mainly associated with 2G target
cell radio condition . Among the different radio condition issue interference is the major contributing factor . In this regard
an reasonable neighbor configuration is found and rectified to improve the HOSR performance .
Action Taken :
Action Type Execution time Purpose Remark
Neighbor optimization on the following Aug 12,,2015 To improve IRAT HOSR . Proper
UMTS cells 30482 ,35863,30542,36786, adjacency configuration leads to
34742, 30418 improved target cell radio condition .

Result :
Due to very few 3G-2G handover attempt the improvement is not significantly visible .

Action -1 : 3G to 2G HOSR improvement action

Action description Action owner Status Remark

Unreasonable neighbor definition is RAN Planning team


one of the reason for 3G-2G HOSR WCDMA optimization team
failure . Accordingly action is launched Open
to re-planning the adjacency
definition
The 2G neighbor basic information WCDMA optimization team
definition on 3G radio network has GSM optimization team
integrity problem . As a result action is On progress
launched to audit the 2G external cell
information database .
Few cases are found to contribute for RAN planning team
HOSR failure associated with 2G
BCCH frequency conflict . As a result Open
2G BCCH frequency plan should be
checked
