LSTI Friendly Customer Trials (FCT)
Consolidated Test Methods For LTE

• Common recommendations for set-up of Trial Networks


• Common definition of Key Performance Indicators
• Common generic procedures for Trial Configuration
• 42 test specifications grouped in 13 testing domains

• Set of methodologies according to NGMN Field Trial


Requirements
• LSTI FCT split in 2 Trial Phases:

• Radio Access testing allowing non-commercial or


simulated EPC solutions

• Integration with EPC & E2E using fully “commercial”


network platform
LSTI Trials started:

10 Operators perform LSTI Trials

Throughputs

• The measured peak rates for FDD & TDD normalized to


20 MHz meet or exceed the NGMN Field Trial expectations
of at least 100 Mbps for downlink & 30-50 Mbps on uplink.

• The throughput depending on radio link quality (single UE


testing) indicates a good alignment between 6 different
trials.
Plans Are Defined For E2E Performance Testing

• Both Radio Access testing and End to End testing


phases are planned throughout 2010 for most of LSTI
Operators.

• On a test domain per test domain basis, the LSTI FCT


group will analyse detailed results and elaborate an
explicit message to the industry.

• Performance levels and main relating testing conditions


will then be displayed for sustaining the LTE-EPC
ecosystem.
