Subscriber Modeling
Subscriber Manager allows you to precisely define all important subscriber characteristics:
Where subscribers are (traffic distribution) What environments they operate in (outdoor, in-vehicle, indoor, deep indoor) What services subscribers use (voice, e-mail, web browsing etc)? What are their usage patterns (number of voice/data calls in BH)? What quality levels they require (guaranteed and maximum UL and DL data rates)? What kind of UE equipment they use? What network resources are allowed (radio bearers)? Performance curves for all bearer can be defined so calculated Eb/No can be presented as FER

Flexible and realistic subscriber modeling approach resulting in a more reliable simulation of network performance

Traffic Map Tool

Land Clutter Raster

Create traffic map by spreading traffic data into

Region/vector (e.g. municipal region, highway and roads) Classified grids (e.g. best serving sectors, clutter grid) Network data (e.g. spreading traffic statistics into best serving sectors)

Rapid Planning vs. Monte-Carlo

When to use Rapid Planning?
When the focus is coverage, not capacity

When to use Monte Carlo?

When there is a need to analyze quality, capacity & coverage Analyze the impact of a traffic forecast on the performance

For initial nominal planning

Coverage calculation under hypothetical loading conditions Coverage calculation based on measured loading conditions

Analyze the impact of a network change on the network capacity Calculate the loading conditions based on a traffic profile

Pilot Pollution Analysis Layers

Analyzes interference from multiple angles
Pilot Delta Ec/Io - pilot power difference between the best pilot and Nth best pilot Sum of pilots minus the best pilot - evaluates the situation of no dominate server The number of polluters - the number of polluters at any interference location The worst polluter layer - site and sector ID of the worst polluter
Sum minus best

CPICH Inspector tool

The CPICH inspector is an interactive tool that visualizes the active set at a given pixel, identifies offending sectors for which propagation containment must be improved This tool also supports on-the-fly update, making it possible to quickly test the impact of a change (e.g. antenna tilt) on the active set. It has flexible settings for different traffic loadings and subscriber equipment configurations
