Chapter 1

Key Performance Indicators

This chapter covers the following topics;

Network Performance Measurement

Network Performance
Measurement
In GSM, performance of the network can be analyzed through KPIs. KPIs
are the specific counters, which represent statistics of overall performance
of the network. Network performance judgment such as about resource
status, service status or channel quality is possible through these statistics.
Statistics comes from the basic measurement of the Control System.
Degradation in the performance of the specific cells can be identified in
OMCR by analyzing the KPIs. In this way specific problem can be resolved
accordingly.

Table 4 lists the entire Key Performance Measurement Counters.

BTS Measurement

This chapter covers the following topics:

Power Control Measurement


TRX Service Measurement
Paging Messages Measurement
TRX Basic Measurement
TRX Power & Temperature Measurement

Power Control Measurement


Power Control enables the mobile station and/or the BTS to increase or
decrease the transmission power on a per-radio link basis.

Power Control is separately performed for the uplink and downlink. In both
cases the BSC is responsible for initiating Power Control; the mobile
station and the BTS adopt transmit power according to the BSC Power
Control commands.

Two modes of power control are:

Normal power control


Rapid power control
Amplitude of power adjustment in rapid control is greater than normal
power control.

BTS regularly samples the power of MS and BTS itself, to obtain average
power. BTS regularly reports the average power to BSC through PC TEST
RPT message, for power control. Measurement report helps in analyzing
the coverage quality as well as the effect and rate of power control.

Wireless Channels

This chapter covers the following topics:

Channels Measurement

Channels Measurement
Channel Measurement here means wireless channel measurement in a cell,
as mobile communication is always through wireless medium. It refers to
the measurement of channel properties, which directly affects the Quality
of Service (QoS) in wireless communication, in a particular cell. Channel
properties such as received level, received quality, Timing Advance (TA)
and interference of both uplink and downlink signals. These measurements
are for the channels in busy or idle modes.

BTS sends MS measurement report to BSC every 480ms. BSC measures


uplink and downlink signal, TA and RQ value in a channel. BSC updates
interference band in database when it receives measurement report from
BTS.

Random Access

This chapter covers the following topics:

Random Access Measurement

Random Access Measurement


Random access measurement provides statistics such as number of:

Random access attempts

Random access processes

Successful random accesses

For random access slot-aloha is used as an access protocol. Single access


may have multiple random access requests.

Random access success ratio means of number of successful random


accesses divided by successful random access requests. This ratio reflects
the channel blocking status.

Collision may occur between numbers of random access requests, for


which time interval adjustment is required.

FIGURE 5 illustrates the Random Access Process.

SAPI 3 Measurement

SAPI 3 Counters

SAPI 3 Introduction
The SAPI is a 6-bit field in LAPDm and defines the type of user to which a
message is addressed. Possible values of SAPI on Air-interface is SAPI=3
and SAPI=0. In this chapter SAPI 3 indicates SAPI=3.

This chapter only discusses the SAPI value equals to three (SAPI=3). SAPI
value equals to three (SAPI=3) is used for Supplementary Services (SS)
and Short Messages Services (SMS) on Air-interface.

If MS sends Short Message (SM), means MS originated SM (MO-SM).


Similarly if MS receives Short Message (SM), means MS terminated SM
(MT-SM). On the air interface SACCH/F, SACCH/H, SDCCH, FACCH/F and
FACCH/H transport short message. Present system implements counters
for SACH/F, SACH/H and SDDCH.

Handover Counters
General Handover measurement involves handover counters that provide
statistics for handover processes that arises from all types of handover
causes. These counters show handover success ratio, number of handover
attempts, execution, success and failure. This chapter analyzes handover
in aspect of the control entity and provides statistics for both the
executions and handover successes. These counters show statistics for
request, success and failure of intra-cell handover, intra-BSC inter-cell
handover and intra-MSC handover.

congestion time.
Measurement Point

There are three measurement points:


Counter C11512 increments if counter C11512 sets congestion
mark before MS attempts to occupy TCH/H.

seizure of TCH/Fs in a cell of previous measurement cycle is taken into
account.

A-interface Signal
Measurement

This chapter includes counters that provide signaling statistics over the A-
interface. This Chapter covers following topics:

BSSAP Message Counters


BSSMAP Message Counters

BSSAP Message Counters


Signaling over A-interface is in the form of Base Station Subsystem
Application Part (BSSAP) messages. BSSAP itself can be separated into the
base station subsystem management application part (BSSMAP) and the
direct transfer application part (DTAP).

BSSMAP include all messages exchanges between BSC and MSC that are
actually processed by the BSC. Examples are Paging, Handover and Reset
messages.

DTAP messages comprise all messages exchanged between subsystem of


the NSS and MS. DTAP messages are transparent for the BSS. DTAP
messages carry Call Control (CC) and Mobility Management (MM)
information.

Table 25 represents BSSAP message counters over A-interface.

Description
Counter ‘C20605’ represents the total time for which trunk circuit can
not be applied. When system fails to occupy the trunk circuit,
congestion mark is set on. System represents the congestion time once
the congestion mark is set on the trunk circuit in database. System
clears the congestion mark once the trunk circuit is released.
Measurement formula
If congestion mark is set on, the Total Congestion Time at this point
can be calculated as follows.
Total Congestion Time= (Release Time – Previous record congestion
Time)
Where;
Release Time: Time instance at which system releases the trunk circuit.
Previous Record Time: Time instance at which system applies for the
