5 Power Control Measurement

1 5 Power Control Measurement


This measurement type registers information on how the BSC controls the
power level and signal quality of the mobile station (MS) and the base
transceiver station (BTS). It allows the user to obtain information on the
number of power control messages which the BSC sends to the MS and
the BTS, and on the quality and strength of the signals both in uplink and
downlink direction. This measurement collects one set of results for each
TRX.

A TRX–level object is a combination of BTS, TRX, and radio frequency


numbers. Exceeding the maximum number of objects, for example, radio
network configuration changes within a measurement period, causes
missed counter updates and the “STATISTICS: too much objects” log
writing to the MCMU log.

The counters of this measurement are updated both on TCH and on


SDCCH.

2.35 005034 / AVERAGE SAIC BS POWER

Counter ID: 005034 Network element name: AVERAGE SAIC BS POWER


Version: 2.1 NetAct name: AVERAGE_SAIC_BS_POWER
Description: Sum of the TRX specific SAIC capable MS related downlink RF power level value
samples in the serving cell. The RF power level value samples are taken from every 40th MS report
received by the BSC during a call. The value range of a single RF power level sample is 0..15.

RF power level value mapping (Pmax is the maximum transmission power of the BTS):
0 -> Pmax - 0 dBm
1 -> Pmax - 2 dBm
2 -> Pmax - 4 dBm
...
15 -> Pmax - 30 dBm.

If Pmax is 43 dBm, then the value 0 means 43 dBm and the value 15 means 13 dBm.

The average TRX specific downlink RF power level used in the cell can be calculated by dividing this
counter with the denominator counter 005035 AVERAGE SAIC BS POWER DENOMINATOR.
Updated: The RF power level value is sampled every 20 seconds during a call.
