UMTS Performance Measurement: A Practical Guide to KPIs for by Ralf Kreher

By Ralf Kreher

UMTS functionality size is a pragmatic consultant that explains how you can determine and degree the most difficulties visible in modern day UMTS dwell networks and should make functionality dimension effects collected within the UTRAN setting comprehensible for the reader. It presents a primary heritage for day-by-day paintings within the box or lab, masking a variety of functionality measurements that aid to troubleshoot and optimize the UTRAN atmosphere. The content material is going a ways past what has been outlined via overseas ordinary our bodies like 3GPP and closes the distance among foreign criteria and definitions of community gear brands (NEM) and community operators. The emphasis is on definition of Key functionality symptoms (KPIs) and measurements that aren't defined in 3GPP commonplace records, equivalent to throughput measurements and the success/failure research of all attainable handover varieties. * contains transparent insurance of the basics of functionality size software program structure and how one can gather and current statistical info * comprises quite a few name circulation diagrams, conversion tables, protocol message examples and pattern size effects that may be used as reference for day-by-day paintings within the box or lab * Explains dimension barriers and the way tolerances offer worthwhile info for validation and assessment of dimension effects * presents an summary of ways functionality dimension software program works in addition to info on how info streams are captured and analyzed, and the way research effects are aggregated and awarded in image person interfaces and experiences offering a gateway into the realm of UMTS-specificmeasurement situations and a normal evaluation of what could be outlined and measured at an in-depth technical point, this booklet will entice these inquisitive about community operation, making plans, configuration and deployment, in addition to consulting and coaching businesses, scholars, technical reporters and size gear brands.
