RNT_LTE_Dim

v2.3.2 RL10 P3 Approved / RL20 P3 Draft / RL15TD P3 Draft


Provided by NWS LTE RA E2E Mgmt SA NE

General Info:
> Dimensioning tool comprises of two main parts presented as Link Budget and 'Site
Count' sheets.
The tool is compliant with RL10, RL20 and RL15TD.
Remarks related to Link Budget:

> Modulation and Coding Scheme sets for DL and UL are compliant with Transport

Block Size selection procedure, which is based on the chosen MCS and cell-edge
user traffic requirement (Cell Edge User Throughput). Transport Block Sizes are
defined with respect to the Physical Resource Blocks covering 1 ms in time domain.
It can be assumed that Maximum MCS Throughput is determined by the percentage
of Physical Resource Blocks which are used for PDSCH/PUSCH transmission.

> In case of 'ERROR!' messages refer to the field description.


> Antenna scheme recommandation:

It is recommended to use 1Tx-2Rx antenna scheme for UL as eNode B supports 2Rx


diversity in case of RL10. DL 2Tx-2Rx refers to transmit diversity (single stream
MIMO) and shall be used in order to improve cell-edge users signal condition.

> RL10/RL20 supports channel-aware scheduling (based on Proportional Fairness)


only in DL, thus Frequency Domain Packet Scheduling gain is not defined for UL.
The values have been obtained using UPRISE system level simulator for 5th
percentile of SINR CDF distribution. PF uplink scheduler is possible in RL15TD.

> Interference Margin value is calculated only for DL. UL results are based on system

level simulations. DL interference margin does not take into account intra-cell
interference (perfect orthogonality between users in the same cell). It is the function
of neighboring cell load, required SINR value and maximum SINR which can be
experienced by cell-edge users.

> The system overhead (control channels and physical layer signals) is modeled with

allowance for PDCCH (3 OFDM symbols per TTI are assumed to be occupied by
PDCCH), PBCH, DL synchronization signal, DL/UL reference signal, PUCCH,
PRACH, aperiodic CQI on PUSCH and ACK/NACKs on PUSCH.

> Combo boxes below link budget scenario name help to restore default values of all

input parameters. If you want to edit the default parameters set, open Defaults
sheet.

Remarks related to 'Cell Capacity':


> The sheet is used to obtain the mean cell throughput based on system-level
simulations. The input figures impacting the calculations are listed on top of the
sheet.
Remarks related to 'Traffic Model:
> The sheet should be used if the user wants to specify traffic model figures impacting
the total data volume in busy hour. After first use of RNT_LTE_Dim, the sheet
contains several different traffic model formats which should be used as a basis for
further calculations. If it is needed, one single section (one traffic model format) can
be duplicated (copied at the end) and total data volume will be recalculated
automatically.

Remarks related to 'Site Count:


> The sheet allows to make a final site count computation based on traffic requirments
throughout several phases.
Remarks related to 'CCH Link Budget':

> The sheet allows to compute the link budget for all LTE relevant PHY control
channels for DL and UL. It should be treated as add-on to data link budget actually
proving that LTE control channels are robust enough to provide coverage not worse
than PDSCH and PUSCH.
Remarks related to 'Charts':

> Charts' sheet allows to run an automatic plot generation based on the selected link

budget scenario. Available plots: throughput vs pathloss/cell range and MCS


distribution for DL and UL.
Remarks related to 'VoIP':

> VoIP sheet includes the calculation of PHY layer payload for various VoIP codecs.
The data is used on "Link Budget" sheet when dimensioning voice service.
Remarks related to Defaults:

> Defaults sheet contains the default values which can be imported to 'Link Budget'
sheet.

Remarks related to Parameters:

> Parameters sheet contains key parameters which are relevant to air interface

dimensioning. Any changes to the sheet structure can cause calculation failures (only
experts).

Please activate add-ins before starting using the tool.

For Excel 2003:


1) Select menu "Tools/Add-Ins..."
2) Check "Analysis ToolPak" and "Analysis ToolPak VBA"
3) Click OK and restart the application.

For Excel 2007 1):


1) Make sure you have Service Pack 2 for MS Office 2007 installed on your PC 2)
1) Select "MS Office Button" (left upper corner of your application)
2) Select "Excel Options/Add-Ins" and then "Manage/Excel Add-ins"
3) Click "Go"
4) Select "Analysis ToolPak"
("Analysis ToolPak VBA" is not required in case of Excel 2007)

Office 2007 users who apply their own workarounds (e.g. xla/xll files swap) should recall such ch
can work with inbuilt Analysis ToolPak library.

Traffic model format is a s


customers provide this inf
appropriate format to calc
unwanted formats (disable
overall data volume).

"Flat Rate" format is the most suitable for LTE traffic model parametrization.
It suits to DSL-llike dimensioning. When "flat rate" format is used, other formats
should be disabled if no other data is available.

Services which are listed here as VoIP, Streaming, Www, etc. should be treated as
examples of traffic model format.
Traffic model format is a set of input parameters for data volume computation. Since the
customers provide this information in very different manner, one should choose the most
appropriate format to calculate data volume. Column C ("Link") allows to disable
unwanted formats (disabled sections will not be taken into account when calculating the
overall data volume).

It may happen that for very low data rate (e.g. 64kbps, 128kbps)
the MAPL will be lower than for higher data rate. This is usually
caused by the turbo-coding efficiency degradation in case of

It may happen that for very low data rate (e.g. 64kbps, 128kbps)
the MAPL will be lower than for higher data rate. This is usually
caused by the turbo-coding efficiency degradation in case of
allocating small amount of user data. The effect is reflected in
SINR requirement. It is visible because the power is equally
shared among all available PRBs and cannot be focused on
allocated ones like in UL.

Uplink MCS

It may happen that there is no path loss for high MCS range. This is usually
caused by the very increase of interference margin in case of higher and
higher SINR requirement.
It does not mean however that "unplotted" MCSs will not be used in the cell at
all. They will be, but close to the eNB and not at the cell-edge. Interference
margin formula does not reflect cell center environment and for this reason it is
impossible to dimension the cell with very high MCSs at the cell edge. Anyway
it would be unrealistic.

The figures listed in the table reflect the Flexi System Module design, however, they clearly
d the 'maximum no. of active UEs' figures that would be reasonably configured for user admission
ol. The reason is that, as long as DRX is not supported (DRX will be introduced with RL30), such
maximum no. of active UE' values would consume far too many UL resources for PUCCH (for
uling request, CQI, HARQ ACK etc.). Typicaly values for RL10 and RL20 admission control would
ore be ~100..120 (irrespective of the bandwidth). In either case, the baseband capacity will not be
miting factor for the site counts - therefore the RNT_LTE_Dim performs its calculations based on
W limits indicated in this table.
