RNP&O Service
There are four phases during network lifecycle: Pre-Bidding, Bidding,
Implementation, Maintenance

The RNP&O services are present throughout the network lifecycle, divided by
four parts: Scheme Traction, Radio Network Planning (including Nominal
Planning, Site Selection, Detail Planning), Radio Networking Optimization
(including Initial Tuning, Network Performance Improvement), On-going

Pre- Implementation Maintenance

Key Points:
How to find the solution for engineering quality problems and push it
The Initial Tuning must be finished before the network come to commercial use

Initial Tuning Procedure
 Single Site Verification

To check whether the actual engineering parameters and RF parameters are

consistent with the planning result, and whether the service function, as well
as the coverage ability and the antenna installation, is normal or not.
• The PM should launch a spot-check to the sites by
• Alarm data and cells status should be collected
before the drive test.
• ENGINEERING• It is necessary to check whether the software version
PARAMETERSisTABLEsuited or not.
• Hardware and its installation• issues
• Alarm messages • Antennas issues • SINGLE SITE VERIFICATION REPORT
• Testing instruments

Key Point:
How to find the solution for engineering quality problems and push it

Key points:
 The manners and contents of Acceptance test: test by cluster, test the whole network
 It is different between network performance acceptance test and equipment acceptance test. The performance
acceptance test is to check whether the KPI meet the requirement mentioned in the contract.

 RF Optimization

To adjust the engineering parameters and system parameters, to

meet the coverage requirement and control the interference

• Simulative test with load should be taken
for trial network

 Network Performance Monitoring

The network performance will meet the requirement of acceptance after the
optimization. But before the official acceptance test, continuous monitoring should
be taken to ensure the prosperous acceptance.

• For swap or expansion project, the network
performance before and after the implementation
should be included in the optimization report.
