Physical Verification
Physical Verification is carried out by verifying physical parameter of the New Site with the TSSR (Technical Site Survey Report) such as Address, Lat, Long, Building Height, Antenna Height, Antenna Type, Orientation, Tilt.

Alarm Verification
Alarms are generated mainly due to number of reasons, and these needs to checked before Drive is being carried out for the Site. Alarms are checked from the NOC (Network Operating Centre) and if found needs to be verified before drive being carried out.

Frequency Plan Verification


Frequency Plan can be verified from the NOC (Network Operating Centre) for BCCH and TCH frequencies being implemented as per the Site Integration Sheet sent to NOC (Network Operating Centre).

Hardware Configuration Verification


Hardware verification is performed to know the Site type, BTS Type, TRX Configuration, VSWR checking , Power measurement for each TRX.

Following is the procedure and parameters that need to checked while performing Drive Test for a New Site.
CPC (Cell Parameter Check)

MOC (Mobile Originated Calls) MTC (Mobile Terminated Calls Prepaid to Postpaid) SMS (Short Messaging Service) GPRS Intra Site Handover Inter Site Handover TRX Test Idle Drive (Normal Drive & Frequency Lock Drive) Dedicated Drive

CPC (Cell Parameter Check)


Given are the parameters that need to be checked while performing CPC. CGI (Cell Global Identity) consists if MCC+NCC+LAC+CI
BCCH Frequency BSIC GSM Band

MOC and MTC


Given are parameter need to be checked while performing MOC and MTC RX Level (-47 dbm to -110dbm)
RX Quality (0 to 7) SQI (20 to 30) DTX HSN (Hopping Sequence Number) (0 to 63) MAIO Hopping Frequency C/ I Ratio (>15 dbm) C/ A Ratio (>12 dbm)

GPRS (General Packet Radio System)


This is performed to check whether GPRS is working on the Site. This is done by browsing a web page in browser of the phone. For GPRS to be checked it is necessary to see that the handset is WAP, GPRS enabled.

Intra Site Handover


Intra Handover is performed to check whether handover is taking place both ways on the Site. Handover is performed among all the Sectors of the Site.

Inter Site Handover


Inter Handover is performed to check whether handover is taking place both ways on the Site with its adjacent neighbor. Handover needs to checked mandatorarily for primary neighbor. Handover is performed with all the defined neighbor's in the integration sheet.

Handover is performed for only those cells whose BCCH and BSIC is decoded in the window shown aside

TRX Test
TRX Test is done to check whether calls originated are being handled by all the TRXs. Call made during the process is tracked by the MAIO number displayed on the screen for all the TRXs. e.g. for Site of configuration 6 TRX per sector the MAIO values for TRX test shall be 0,1,2,3,4. Call can be originated on the BCCH or the TCH frequencies. Hence MAIO values will be reflected only for calls on TCH frequency and not on BCCH frequency.

Call on TCH Frequency 4-Nov-13 Surendra Singh Bundela

Call on BCCH Frequency

Idle Drive
Idle Drive is performed in two fashion Normal Drive
Frequency Lock Drive

Normal Drive
This is done to frame the potential area of the new site planned. It also helps us to get to know the important neighboring sites for which the handover has to take place.

Frequency Lock Drive


This is done by locking the BCCH frequency of the serving cell and performing the drive for the same cell unless the mobile enters into No Service Mode. This is useful for making decision related to GSM antenna height, tilt, and orientation.

Dedicated Drive
Dedicated drive is an important part of Drive Test. Here call is made to a test number and drive is done for the potential areas of the Site. During drive being carried out one has constantly monitor parameters such as RX Level, RX Quality, SQI, DTX, C/I Ratio, Hopping Channel, Neighbor list, TA (Timing Advance). Constant changes in these parameter are helpful for post Optimization of the site.
