Organization 1 New Features of the Probe V200R003 This section describes the new features of Probe V200R003. 2 Overview of the Probe The Probe is an air interface test software, which is used to collect the test data of the air interface of the GSM/GPRS/EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+, CDMA2000 1x/EV-DO, WiMAX, and LTE network. Through the Probe, the network performance can be evaluated, the network optimization can be guided, and the fault can be rectified. The collected test data of the air interface on the radio network can be saved as the test logfile. This facilitates the data analysis after the logfile is imported to other post-processing software (such as GENEX Assistant) or the later data replaying. 3 Installing the Probe This section describes how to install the Probe and other assistants. To complete the installation of the Probe, you only need to run the installation program and then perform operations as prompted by the installation wizard. 4 Starting the Probe Once installed, the Probe application can be launched from the Start menu or the shortcut icon. 5 Managing the Map Window The map window displays map-related information in a test area and counter information such as cell information, event information, and IE information on the drive test route. You can add a layer, configure layer properties, and configure the legend properties of the IE layer in the map window. 6 Managing Engineering Parameters Issue 04 (2011-02-15)

About This Document

This chapter describes engineering parameters of different network systems supported by the Probe and the method for importing engineering parameters. You can learn about the details of base station parameters, antenna parameters, neighboring cell parameters, and various technology parameters of the current test area through the engineering parameters. 7 Connecting External Devices Connecting external devices involves connecting external devices to the PC and in the Probe, so that the external devices can work with the Probe to perform tests. When you use the Probe to replay data, you need not connect external devices. 8 Collecting Data The Probe collects the air interface test data through the test terminal and other external devices and records test data in logfiles. Before collecting the data, make sure that a computer installed with the Probe, the test terminal, the scanner, and the GPS are available and the dongle must be plugged in. You can also import engineering parameters for different network systems and map files, which helps to provide a vivid view of test data. 9 Managing Logfiles During tests, test data is saved in .gen files that are called logfiles. This chapter describes how to record, replay, segment, and export logfiles. 10 Managing View Windows This section describes how to view data in view windows and how to configure properties of view windows. View windows are key windows of the Probe. You can view IEs, events, Layer 2 or Layer 3 messages, and statistical values of indicators in view windows. 11 Typical Application This section describes typical test methods supported by the Probe. 12 Interface Reference of the Probe This describes the interface and parameters of the Probe. You can refer to these parameters when you collect, view, and replay the data through the Probe. 13 FAQs This describes the problems that may occur during the use of the software and the corresponding causes. This also describes how to solve these problems. This also describes the using skills. 14 Appendix This describes the test items, information elements (IEs), predefined events, and keyboard shortcuts supported by the Probe.

Speech Quality Evaluation Test Based on Probe V200R002, Probe V200R003 enhances the speech quality evaluation tests. The speech quality evaluation tests are categorized into the following types: l

Synchronous speech quality evaluation test One Probe is configured with the two PHU terminals. The Probe performs the synchronous speech quality evaluation test by enabling a PHU terminal to call the other PHU terminal. During the test, the calling PHU terminal plays speech samples and the called PHU terminal records result files so that the uplink and downlink MOSs are obtained. For details, see Figure 1-1. In this case, only the test plan for the calling PHU terminal needs to be configured.

l

Asynchronous speech quality evaluation test The Probe is installed on two PCs. Each Probe is configured with a PHU terminal. The Probes perform the asynchronous speech quality evaluation test by enabling the two PHU terminals to call each other. During the test, the calling and called PHU terminals record and play speech files alternatively so that each Probe records the MOS. For details, see Figure 1-2. In this case, the test plans for the calling and called PHU terminals need to be configured separately.

l

Speech quality evaluation test between the MS and the PSTN SQE Server For two PCs, one is configured with the Probe that is configured with a PHU terminal, and the other is configured with the PSTN SQE Server. The Probe performs the speech quality evaluation test between an MS and the PSTN SQE Server by enabling the PHU terminal to call the PSTN SQE Server or the PSTN SQE Server to call the PHU terminal. During the test, the calling party plays voices and the called party records voices so that the MOS is obtained. For details, see Figure 1-3. In this case, the test plans for the calling and called parties need to be configured separately.

5.1 Basic Concepts About Maps This section describes the basic concepts about maps. It is recommended that you perform relevant operations in the map window to learn the relevant concepts of maps.

Map The map consists of a series of map elements and involves the MapInfo map and the raster map. The map information is displayed in the map window on the Probe. The map information includes the map information about the test area, test routes, events, and engineering parameters. l

MapInfo map A MapInfo map consists of multiple layers, and each layer is saved in a file. The files supported by the MapInfo map are in .tab or .gst (GeoSet) format. A GeoSet is a special type of workspace used for map layers and saves the configurations including layer order, labels, and legends.

l

Raster map The entire raster map can be considered as a layer. The raster map supported by the Probe is in .tif, .bmp, .jpg, .gif, or .png format.

Layer A layer is a set of data displayed in the map window. There are two main types of layers: map layers and indicator layers. l

A map consists of multiple map layers.

l

An indicator layer includes the information related to events, IEs, and cells.

A layer may contain multiple objects. For example, a map layer contains all the roads and water areas on the map; a cell layer (see Figure 5-1) contains multiple engineering parameters. Figure 5-1 Cell layer

Label Labels are the texts that represent the objects contained on each layer in the map window. For example, the fields of the engineering parameters on a cell layer, the values and indexes of the IEs on an IE layer, and the names of the buildings on a building layer.

5.2 Importing Maps You can import a map through the indoor map window or outdoor map window. In this manner, you can directly know the wireless environment of the test area and easily analyze the test data.

Context After the Probe is installed, the system automatically installs the world map. If no other maps are imported, the system displays the world map by default each time you open the outdoor map window. If engineering parameters are imported, the Probe automatically loads the engineering parameters and displays them as a layer of the map after you open the outdoor map window. The indoor map window and the outdoor map window are mutually exclusive. Therefore, you must close the outdoor map window before opening the indoor map window. Similarly, you must close the indoor map window before opening the outdoor map window. 5.2.1 Importing Outdoor Test Maps The MapInfo map and raster map can be imported. The MapInfo map consists of multiple layers, and each layer is saved in a file. The entire raster map can be considered as a layer. You can import outdoor test map during the outdoor test to facilitate the data browse in the outdoor map view. 5.2.2 Importing Indoor Test Maps Only the raster indoor map can be imported. You can import indoor test map during the indoor test to facilitate the data browse in the indoor map view.

5.2.1 Importing Outdoor Test Maps The MapInfo map and raster map can be imported. The MapInfo map consists of multiple layers, and each layer is saved in a file.

6 Managing Engineering Parameters

6.2 Importing Engineering Parameters You can import engineering parameters of the test area before the test or replay. After the engineering parameters are imported, the system detects the best matched BTS from the imported BTS information according to the network parameter values of the Probe.

Context According to service requirements, engineering parameters are classified into mandatory parameters, optional parameters, and neighboring cell parameters. For details, see 6.1 Engineering Parameters Supported in Different Network Systems. You can click the icon to view engineering parameter templates of different networks in the default path provided by the Probe. In addition, you can modify the format of the current engineering parameter table based on the project reference template to ensure that the format of the engineering parameter table meets the requirements of the Probe. l

The mandatory fields must be totally matched. Otherwise, the corresponding engineering parameter cannot be imported.

l

In the case of the optional fields, you can perform the match operation according to the actual situation. If the optional field is not matched, the Probe does not import the data in the corresponding column as the engineering parameter.

l

Neighboring cells are classified into horizontal neighboring cells and vertical neighboring cells. – Horizontal neighboring cell The engineering parameter fields of the serving cell and the cell fields are in the same line of the same table. Horizontal neighboring cells support only the GSM network system. In this case, engineering parameter fields contain neighboring cell fields. – Vertical neighboring cell Each line in the table indicates a neighboring cell relation. Vertical neighboring cells support the GSM, WCDMA, WiMAX, and LTE network systems. In this case, engineering parameter fields do not contain neighboring cell fields, and you need to import the corresponding engineering parameter when importing a neighboring cell. NOTE

In the case of importing vertical neighboring cell fields, pay attention to the following points: l In GSM network system, LAC and CI of the engineering parameter field must be matched, and NLAC and NCI of the neighboring cell field must be matched. l In WCDMA network system, RNCID and CellID of the engineering parameter field must be matched, and NRNCID and NcellID of the neighboring cell field must be matched. l In WiMAX network system, BSID of the engineering parameter field must be matched, and NBSID of the neighboring cell field must be matched. l In LTE network system, CellID and PCI of the engineering parameter field must be matched, and NcellID and NPCI of the neighboring cell field must be matched.

Connecting External Devices

About This Chapter Connecting external devices involves connecting external devices to the PC and in the Probe, so that the external devices can work with the Probe to perform tests. When you use the Probe to replay data, you need not connect external devices. 7.1 Connectable External Devices The Probe supports various types of external devices, such as test terminal, scanner, and GPS. This describes the types and specifications of external devices used in the data collection. 7.2 Plugging in External Devices Before a test is performed, ensure that the external devices are properly plugged into the PC and are correctly positioned. 7.3 Configuring External Devices This section describes how to configure external devices. After external devices are connected to the PC installed with the Probe, you need to add and configure related parameters in the Device Configure window of the Probe so that external devices work with the Probe to collect data. 7.4 Enabling External Devices Enabling external devices refers to connecting external devices in the Probe so that the Probe can recognize the configured external devices. 7.5 Selecting the Data to Be Collected Selecting the data to be collected refers to the process in which the Probe selectively collects the data reported by test terminals. In this case, the logfile records only the selected data. For the data that is frequently read, you can set data sampling intervals. This avoids the receipt of redundant data and increases the speed of reading data. 7.6 Configuring Device Alarms The Probe generates alarm in dialog box or voice mode, when the device is unexpectedly disconnected or the signal strength of the GPS is weak. You can set alarm events or alarm modes for special situations.

Context l

Handover feature The handover feature consists of forcing handover and forbid handover. The forcing handover is used to check whether the neighboring relation between cells is added properly. The forbid handover is used to measure the coverage range of the newly constructed site. The forcing handover and forbid handover are independent of each other. – If the forbid handover is successfully performed, the MS in dedicated state is not switched until the MS is disconnected from the network. – If the forcing handover is successfully performed and the neighboring relation between the serving cell and the neighboring cells is normal, the MS can be switched to the destination cell other than the non-destination cell.

l

ARFCN control and band control After the ARFCN is controlled in idle state, the system automatically prohibits the handover if the MS originates a call. In such a case, the MS remains on the destination ARFCN. After the band is controlled in idle state, the band is controlled in dedicated state. In such a case, the system filters the neighboring cells of the non-destination band.

l

CBA inversion The CBA is a parameter set by the BSC in the GSM system and is used to control the access of a cell. When the cell is under construction, the value of the CBA cannot be accessed by common users. During this time, the MS can access the cell to verify the functions of the newly-constructed cell through the CBA inversion function.

11.2.6 Conducting the LTE Forcing Function Test This section describes how to perform the LTE forcing function test. The LTE forcing functions consist of locking network, frequency band, cells, turning over the cell bar access (CBA), and locking the transmit power of the PUSCH.

Prerequisite The Probe is connected with UEs, and the UEs can be enabled by the Probe. For details, see 7.4 Enabling External Devices.

Context l

Locking the network According to the mobile country code (MCC) and mobile network code (MNC), the UE camps on a specific PLMN after the network is locked.

l

Locking EARFCN and band After the EARFCN is locked in idle state, the system automatically prohibits the handover if the UE originates a call. In such a case, the UE remains on the destination EARFCN. After the band is locked in idle state, the band is locked in dedicated state. In such a case, the system filters the neighboring cells of the non-destination band.

l

Locking a cell According to the EARFCN and physical cell identity (PCI), the UE camps on a specific serving cell after a cell is locked.

l

Turning over the CBA The CBA is a parameter configured for the LTE system to control whether the UE is allowed to access a cell. When the cell is under construction, the CBA value indicates that the common subscriber cannot access the cell. In this case, the UE can access this cell through the CBA turn-over function to verify the functions of this cell.

l

Locking the transmit power of the PUSCH According to the transmit power of the PUSCH within the specified range, perform the related operations. Then, the UE uses the constant transmit power to transmit signals and the power control function does not take effect. In this case, the cell performance can be evaluated.

Procedure Step 1 Choose Test > Forcing Function > LTE Forcing Feature. The LTE Forcing Feature dialog box is displayed. For details about the parameters in the LTE Forcing Feature dialog box, see 12.21 Parameters for Testing the Forcing Feature of the GSM. Step 2 Select a UE from the Device drop-down list.

13.1.1 What Should I Do When the Verification of the Dongle Fails? Symptom The Probe cannot be started normally and the system displays Lock Error:Verify Lock Failed.

Possible Causes The possible causes of the fault that the Probe fails to verify the dongle are as follows: l

The dongle is plugged in improperly.

l

The system time is changed before the Probe is started.

l

The dongle expires.

l

The GENEX Shared is abnormal.

l

Other dongles exist.

Procedure Step 1 Check whether the dongle is plugged in. Step 2 Check whether the connection between the dongle and the USB port is normal. Step 3 Check whether the dongle drive is installed correctly. It is recommended that you reinstall the dongle drive. Step 4 Check whether the system time is changed. Do not change the system time before starting the Probe. The dongle controls the authority through the system time. The system time must be the current time or later than the current time. Step 5 Check whether the dongle expires. The license of the dongle that expires cannot be used. You need to apply for a new license. Step 6 Check whether the GENEX Shared components are installed properly. It is recommended that you reinstall the GENEX Shared components. 13-2

13.1.2 What Should I Do When the License Check Fails? Symptom When the license edition of the Probe is used, the message Error: ESN is not correct! is displayed and the Probe cannot be started properly.

Possible Causes The ESN changes and cannot match the license.

Procedure l

Use the dongle edition of the Probe.

l

Apply for multiple licenses based on the number of network adapters on the PC. The Probe cannot identify the ESN of the hard disk on the PC because of PC configuration. In this case, the Probe selectively identifies the ESN of the network adapter on the PC. If multiple network adapters exist on the PC, the network adapter ESN changes after the operating system is started. Therefore, you are advised to apply for licenses based on the number of network adapters on the PC. When the message Error: ESN is not correct! is displayed, load the corresponding license file to the system again.

Working Principles of the PSTN SQE Server This describes working principles of the PSTN SQE Server. The PSTN SQE Server supports the speech quality evaluation test on the uplink and downlink. By interacting with the PHU test terminal, the PSTN SQE Server performs the speech quality evaluation test. During the test, the PSTN SQE Server or Probe records the speech result files, performs the MOS analysis in real time, and then displays the MOS values. Thus, you can easily locate the speech quality problems on the radio network.

Speech Evaluation on the Uplink The PHU test terminal plays a speech sample through the air interface. Then, the PSTN SQE Server receives the played speech sample through the PSTN and records the speech sample in the destination file. Thus, the uplink MOS value is obtained according to the speech result file and the speech sample through the PESQ algorithm, as shown in Figure 14-2. Table 14-4 describes Figure 14-2.
