Scanner analysis

 Scanner analysis flow


1) Check for off-air sites during drive test
2) Check for crossed feeders
3) Analyze cluster coverage (RSCP)
4) Analyze cluster quality (EcIo) and pilot pollution
5) Check individual cell coverage
6) Analyze 3G-3G missing neighbours

Ericsson Internal 21 Sam Sam Gan(ENO/GB) 2008-09-25


Analyze cluster pilot pollution (1)
 Actix uses different definition for pilot pollution
 Tools \ Display Thresholds \ UMTS \ Scan_Coverage
– When >= 4 pilots are above
Uu_Scan_PilotPollutionThreshold, a pilot pollution event
will be created

Ericsson Internal 22 Sam Sam Gan(ENO/GB) 2008-09-25


Analyze cluster pilot pollution (2)
 Under Cell Pilot Pollution tab, display pilot pollution on
cell basis by clicking the cell

Ericsson Internal 23 Sam Sam Gan(ENO/GB) 2008-09-25


Analyze cluster pilot pollution (3)
 Pilot pollution can be analyzed with “Too Many
Servers” flag too
 Tools \ Display Thresholds \ UMTS \ Scan_Coverage
– When >= 4 pilots (including best server) are within
Uu_Scan_TooManyServersThreshold (e.g. 5dB), a “too
many server” event will be created

Ericsson Internal 24 Sam Sam Gan(ENO/GB) 2008-09-25


Analyze cluster pilot pollution (4)
 Under Cell Pilot Pollution tab, display “Too Many
Servers” on cell basis by clicking the cell

Ericsson Internal 25 Sam Sam Gan(ENO/GB) 2008-09-25


Check individual cell coverage
 Check overshooting cells by clicking the sector
 Or sort by Distance (# samples above max distance)

Ericsson Internal 26 Sam Sam Gan(ENO/GB) 2008-09-25


Analyze 3G-3G missing neighbours
 Analyze 3G-3G missing neighbours by clicking sector
 Click Export Data to export suggested neighbour lists
