1 Overview

Overview

With the initial target of downlink peak data rate reaching above 100 Mbit/s, the next-generation Long Term Evolution (LTE) system is developed to meet the increasing demands on higher data rate due to fast expansion of multimedia applications. For a new wireless system like the LTE, a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are defined for the evaluation of system performance, in particular the performance of the evolved Radio Access Network (eRAN). The comparison between the LTE and the legacy systems such as UMTS or CDMA2000 system is also specified in this document. This document specifies a set of eRAN KPIs to evaluate the performance of the LTE system. Some counters necessary for the KPI calculation are also described in details. Given that the LTE is a new system, the KPIs in this document are drafted ones and subject to change. KPIs should be updated according to the experiences of commercial network management and radio network optimization. The KPIs in this document are classified into categories based on the measurement targets: accessibility, retainability, mobility, service integrity, utilization, availability, and traffic KPIs. This document is organized as follows: firstly we briefly describe the KPI specification template. Then detailed specifications of each KPI are described in terms of the aforementioned seven categories. Finally we provide definitions of relevant counters in Chapter 11 Counter List.

3.1.1 Description

Accessibility KPIs

Accessibility KPIs are used to measure the probability whether services requested by a user can be accessed within specified tolerances in the given operating conditions. The service provided by the E-UTRAN is defined as EPS/ERABs. Radio Resource Control (RRC) connection and System Architecture Evolution (ERAB) setup are the main procedures for accessibility KPIs. The accessibility KPIs can be calculated per cell or cluster. The KPIs at the cluster level are calculated by aggregating all cell counters of the same cluster.

3.1 RRC Setup Success Rate (Service)


According to Reference[1], the RRC connection setup procedure is triggered by various different causes as identified by the establishmentCause field in RRCConnectionRequest message: emergency, highPriorityAccess, mt (Mobile terminating)-Access, mo (Mobile Originating)-Signaling, and mo-Data. The UE sets the establishmentCause in accordance with the information received from upper layers. Causes except mo-signaling are categorized as service-related ones. The mo-signaling cause is a signaling-related cause. This KPI evaluates the RRC setup success rate with service-related causes in a cell or cluster Involved. The KPI is calculated based on the counters measured at eNodeB when the eNodeB receives an RRC Connection Request from the UE, as shown in Figure 3-1. To illustrate the KPI calculation procedures, we briefly discuss how the related counters (number of RRC Connection setup attempts (service) and number of successful RRC setup (service)) are collected. The number of RRC Connection attempts is collected by the eNodeB at measurement point A and the number of successful RRC connection is counted at measurement point C. The related counters are discussed in Chapter 11 Counter List.

3.3 ERAB Setup Success Rate (VoIP)


3.3.1 Description
This KPI is used to evaluate the ERAB setup success rate of the VoIP service in a cell or a cluster. The counters related to this KPI are measured when the eNodeB receives an ERAB Setup Request message or an Initial Context Setup Request message from the MME, as shown in Figure 3-2 according to Reference [2] and Reference [3]. The ERAB is part of the Evolved Packet Service (EPS) bearer. According to Reference [4], an ERAB is one or more Service Data Flows between UE and EPC. The ERAB identity remains unique for the UE even if the UE-associated logical S1-connection (S1 bearer) is released during periods of user inactivity. The ERAB consists of both ERAB radio bearer (between eNodeB and UE, same as the radio bear defined in the EPS bearer) and corresponding S1 bearer (between eNodeB and MME). Figure 3-2 and Figure 3-3 show two scenarios: MME-initiated ERAB setup (Scenario A) and UE-triggered ERAB setup (Scenario B). Scenario B is triggered by the radio bearer setup. Initial Context Setup Request messages are exchanged between eNodeB and MME. If the ERAB Setup Request message or Initial Context Setup Request message requires multiple ERAB setups at the same time, specific counters are incremented for each ERAB .

4.1 Call Drop Rate (VoIP)
4.1.1 Description

Retainability KPIs

Retainability KPIs are used to evaluate the network capability to retain services requested by a user for a desired duration once the user is connected to the services. These counters can be calculated per cell or per cluster. The KPIs at the cluster level can be calculated by aggregating all the cell counters. Retainability KPIs are important in evaluating whether the system can maintain the service quality at certain level.

This KPI can be used to evaluate the call drop rate of the VoIP service in a cell or a cluster. The call drop rate is calculated by monitoring the VoIP ERAB abnormal release rate. Each ERAB is associated with the QoS information. The voice service can be distinguished by the specific QCI = 1. ERAB includes both the ERAB radio bearer and corresponding S1 bearer. Any abnormal release on either bearer causes call drop and therefore is counted into the call drop rate. The abnormal release is identified by the CauseIE defined in Reference[3]. The Call Drop Rate (CDR) is defined as Abnormal ERAB release / All released ERAB. Note that there are two different procedures indicating the ERAB release: they are indicated through E-RAB Release Indication and UE Context Release Command as shown in Figure 4-1.

Figure 4-1 Abnormal ERAB release

As shown in Figure 4-1, the abnormal ERAB release counter is incremented when the eNodeB sends an E-RAB Release Indication to the MME or receives an UE Context Release Command message from the MME and the release causes are not Normal Release, User Inactivity, Partial Handover, or Handover triggered. If the message contains several ERAB ID IEs (in the ERAB to Be Release List IE), the counter will be incremented for each individual ERAB. For the eNodeB-initiated abnormal ERAB release, the eNodeB knows whether it is a normal or abnormal ERAB release.

5.1.1 Description

Mobility KPIs

Mobility KPIs are used to evaluate the performance of E-UTRAN mobility, which is critical to the customer experience. Several categories of mobility KPIs are defined based on the following handover types: intra-frequency, inter-frequency, and inter-Radio Access Technology (RAT).

5.1 Intra-frequency Handover Out Success Rate


This KPI can be used to evaluate the intra-frequency Handover out success rate in a cell or a cluster. The intra-frequency handover (HO) includes both inter-eNodeB and intra-eNodeB scenarios. To illustrate the KPI calculation, we briefly discuss how the related counters (number of intra-frequency HO attempts and number of successful intra-frequency HO attempts) are collected. Intra-eNodeB HO scenario is shown in Figure 5-1. The HO attempt counter is collected at point B. When the eNodeB sends an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message to the UE, it decides to perform a handover. The eNodeB counts the number of attempts to perform intra-eNodeB intra-frequency HO in the source cell. The success HO counters are collected at point C. The eNodeB counts the number of successful intra-eNodeB intra-frequency HOs in the source cell when the eNodeB receives the RRCConnectionReconfigurationComplete message from the UE.

Two scenarios are available for the inter-eNodeB HO, as shown Figure 5-2 and Figure 5-3. The HO attempts are collected at point B. When the Source-eNodeB (S-eNodeB) sends an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message to the UE, it decides to perform an inter-eNodeB HO. In this KPI, the source and target cells of the handover are at the same frequency. The number of inter-eNodeB intra-frequency HO attempts is measured at the source cell. The number of inter-eNodeB intra frequency success HOs is collected at point C as shown in Figure 5-2 and Figure 5-3. During a handover with the source and target cells at the same frequency, the number of successful inter-eNodeB intra-frequency HOs is measured in the source cell when the S-eNodeB receives a UE Context Release message from the Target-eNodeB (T-eNodeB) or a UE Context Release Command message from the MME, indicating that the UE access to the T-eNodeB is successful.

5.2.1 Description
This KPI can be used to evaluate the inter-frequency handover out success rate in a cell or a cluster. Note that the measurement points for the associated counters are the same as those for the intra-frequency HO scenario described in 5.1.1 . The target LTE cell operates at the frequency different from that of the source LTE cell, which is the only difference. As shown in Figure 5-1, if the source and target cells at different frequencies are controlled by the same eNodeB, the eNodeB counts the number of intra-eNodeB inter-frequency HO attempts at point B and the successful intra-eNodeB inter-frequency HOs at point C in the source cell. As shown in Figure 5-2, if the handover source and target cells are at different frequencies, the eNodeB counts the number of inter-eNodeB inter-frequency HO attempts at point B and the successful intra-eNodeB inter-frequency HOs at point C in the source cell.

5.3 Handover In Success Rate


5.3.1 Description
This KPI can be used to evaluate the handover in success rate in a cell or a cluster. The HO includes both inter-eNodeB and intra-eNodeB scenarios. To illustrate the KPI calculation, we briefly discuss how related counters (number of HO attempts and number of successful HOs) are collected. Intra-eNodeB HO scenario is shown in Figure 5-4. The HO attempt counters are collected at point B. When the eNodeB sends an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message to the UE, it decides to perform a HO. The eNodeB counts the number of intra-eNodeB handover attempts in the target cell. The success HO counter is collected at point C. The eNodeB counts the number of successful intra-eNodeB HOs in the target cell when the eNodeB receives an RRCConnectionReconfigurationComplete message from the UE.
