2 Introduction
This document describes various possible areas where test cases can be used in order to test and tune a TD LTE
technology network. The intention is not to provide a complete guide with all aspects and scenarios for optimizing
TD LTE, but rather to give some initial guidelines on how to start testing and tuning a TD LTE network.

3 TD LTE Test Case Areas


This chapter describes briefly a number of possible areas where test cases can be applied, as well as the types of
tests and where to find the corresponding information.

3.1 Radio Interface

Transmission modes according to expected plans; TM 2-3-4 is most likely the modes in use – verify. [Where:
Information Elements]

Rank (RI); correlation to number of transport blocks (RI=1 => n:o of blocks=1, RI=2 => n:o of blocks=2). [Where:
Information Elements]

Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS); verify that different schemes are actually used, on both UL and DL.
[Where: Information Elements]

Power Control; UE TX Power => UL/DL balance, path loss. [Where: Information Elements]. SRS =>
activation/deactivation. [Where: L3, Mode Reports].

Mobility; Check RSRP thresholds in system information, events A1-A5 and B1-B2. [Where: L3].

Link Budget; Path loss. [Where: Information Elements (Serving Cell Total RS Power)].

Timing Advance; [Where: Mode Reports].

Scheduling; Methods. [Where: Mode Reports].

Cyclic Prefix; DL [Where: L3 ] and UL [Where: Information Elements].

Downlink HARQ method; Ack/Nack, Bundling or Multiplexing. [Where: Information Elements and L3].

3.2 RACH

Check max preambles [Where: Information Elements] and preamble format [Where: L3].

3.3 Paging

Check L3 messages.

3.4 Coverage

Signal strength. [Where: Information Elements].

3.5 Handovers

Interruption times. [Where: Information Elements (MAC PDU Handover Interruption Time)].

Verify Tracking Area updates. [Where: L3].

Handovers on X2 and S1.

3.6 TDD Configuration Check

DL/UL subframe configuration. [Where: Information Elements].

Special subframe configuration. [Where: Information Elements].

Physical cell ID => avoid colliding RS on same site. [Where: Information Elements, post processing].

3.7 Performance

Max throughput, depends on TDD UL/DL configuration and system BW. [Where: Information Elements].

UL and DL services.

3.8 Latency

Use Ping. [Where: Information Elements and services].

3.9 Services

Services to be tested:

• FTP

• HTTP

• E-mail

• Ping

• UDP

• Video streaming

• VoIP

3.10 IRAT Testing

Thresholds (system information). [Where: L3].

Overlapping coverage (for CSFB). [Where: Information Elements].

Signal strength. [Where: Information Elements].

3.11 Attach

Check L3 messages.

3.12 RLC

RLC acknowledge and un-acknowledge mode. [Where: Information Elements and services].

3.13 KPIs

For a description of available KPIs, see TEMS Investigation Help, volume Technical Reference. For detailed
technical definitions of all KPIs, see separate documents found on the installation CD in the subdirectory
Documents.
