1 Over vi ew
The guide is mostly applicable to V6.20 (Minos).
This guidebook collected the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) for CS and PS, which are
now commonly adopted in presales bidding projects; and the definitions of different KPIs
and counter formulas for V6.2 is described here as well.
Generally, KPIs can be classified into four types: statistical KPIs, testing KPIs, equipment
performance KPIs, and user perception KPIs. Only statistical KPIs and testing KPIs are
elaborated here. KPI involves different factors. It is also closely related to the network
radio environment.

T C900060122 100%/(C900060122 +C900060123)
Notes
The ratio of the available SDCCHs to the SDCCHs allocated in network is
mainly used to check the equipment performance, especially to inspect
the availability of SDCCHs of the cells. It is directly related to the stability
of equipment, transmission and power supply. It reflects the availability
ratio of network equipment and the stability of the network operation.

activation. The influencing factors include SD congestion, carrier
hardware malfunction, transmission delay or malfunction, and CMB

are used as signaling channels.

Notes
This is mainly to evaluate the consistency between the preplanned
network and the actual network. It will be affected by the following
factors:
1. The consistency between the desired capacity and actual capacity of
the network; and the consistency between the estimated traffic model
and the actual one.
2. Sudden traffic.
3. Lack of SDCCH capacity.
4. Internal & external interference.
5. Preplanned redundancy.
6. Operators special requirements.
7. FR and HR used as signaling channel.

It excludes handovers.
Notes
This is mainly to evaluate the consistency between the preplanned
network and actual network, and the precondition is that the precise
traffic model, network capacity and redundancy should be provided in the
preplanning period. It is related to the following factors:
1. The consistency between the desired capacity and actual capacity of
the network; and the consistency between the estimated traffic model
and the actual one.
2. Sudden traffic.
3. Lack of TCH capacity.
4. Internal & external interference.
5. Preplanned redundancy.

Notes Formula 1 is the old one in the previous Guide. Its problem is that the

numerator does not include the number of call drops but the denominator
includes the number of call attempts when TCH is used as signaling.
Theoretically, call drop always occurs after successful channel
assignment. Then the denominator should be the number of SDCCH
assignment successes instead of the number of SDCCH attempts.

Notes
Voice channel call drop rate falls into two types: one is with handover
included; the other is with handover excluded. If handover is not included,
the indicator value will be about 0.2% higher than the one with handover
included. This discrepancy is not universally defined yet, for it can be
larger in dual-band network. This KPI value differs a lot in varied types of
network. The discrepancy can reach 0.3%.

For DT and CQT, the call attempt is determined by the simultaneous
appearance of channel request and CM service request. When either of
Connect and Connect Acknowledge appears after one call attempt
begins, it is counted as one completion.

Method
For DT and CQT, when either of Connect and Connect Acknowledge
appears after one call attempt begins, it is counted as one completion.
When either of Disconnect and Channel Release appears during one
conversation, it is counted as one normal released. When none of the
above stated two messages appears and the special mode is changed
to idle mode, it is counted as one call drop. If the release occurs when
the call duration does not meet the requirement, find the cause based on
Layer 3 signaling decoding.

takes into consideration many factors, including BER, FER, handover
frequency, handover conditions, DTX activated (or not), and the encoder
in use, to finally get the speech quality indicator (SQI). There are
different SQI top limits for different types of encoders. For half-rate
encoder, the SQI top limit is 19; for full-rate encoder, 21; for enhanced
full-rate encoder, 30. SQI ranges from 18 to 30. SQI value will increase
when EFR or AMR is applied.

Defini tion
It is related to testing equipment.
Testi ng
Method

Notes
The commonly used MOS assessment method consists of subjective
and objective scoring parts.
In the subjective part, engineers subjectively compare the original voice
material and the deteriorated voice material according to ITU-T Proposal
P.800 and P.830, and give their MOS scores respectively, then average
the scores from different engineers.
While in the objective part, PESQ method from ITU-T Proposal P.862 is
used, that is special equipment or software (e.g. the VQT test equipment
of Agilent) is used to perform the assessment. In MOS, 0 means the
lowest quality, 5 stands for the highest. Standard PCM Quality should
reach around 4.4.
The MOS values for commonly used coding formats are as follows:
G.711 MOS =4.8
G.721, G.723, G.726 MOS =4.2
G.728 MOS =4.2
G.729 MOS =4.2
G.723.1(5.3) MOS =3.5
G.723.1(6.3) MOS =3.98
MOS can be affected greatly by the performance of test equipment. The
test results from different vendors are different. Currently, the test
equipment from Actena performs the best.

4 CN CS KPIs
4.1 Pagi ng Success Rate
KPI Paging success rate
KPI
Definition
Number of paging responses 100%/Number of paging requests
Testing
Method
See MSC counter indicators.
Notes
BSC can indirectly provide this KPI, but its statistical point differs from
that of MSC. The difference lies in call loss at Interface A.
Query Paging overflow:
1How to query paging overflow in BSC
Paging overflow is location in TRX paging Measure. There are two counter regarding paging discard.
C901640001Number of PS paging message discarded due to full of the queue
C901640002Number of CS paging message discarded due to full of the queue
Attention: It is not correct for M8206/BS20. It is correct for B8018/B8112/SDR. So please distinguish
BTS type.

2Regarding BTS pagi ng capacity

If there is only one CCCH channel in the cell and AGCH block is two. Paging block is 7(9-2=7) in one
51 multiframe. Total PCH block are 26808. The max capacity of sending paging is 107232 under using
TMSI on a quarter of one hour(Paging Type 3). But the number of paging is random. Paging type is
shifty and paging type3 don't hold. In fact ,the max capacity can't achieve on Um interface. When bulk
paging comes sometime, some paging message will be discarded because of paging queue.
Remark: one multiframe is 235ms. Before we repeatedly calculate BTS capacity. BTS capacity is about
400000.it is correct. But peak value is not considered.



3 the affecting for the BTS when TMSI&IMSI paging
The paging type is 3 types
Type 1:Send 2paging message in one CCCH block(2 TMSI or 2 IMSI )
Type 2:Send 3 paging message in one CCCH block ( 3 TMSI or 2TMSI+1IMSI)

Type 3:Send 4 paging message in one CCCH block(4 TMSI)
When using TMSI paging, MS maybe receive one type paging message of Type1 or Type2 or
Type3. Paging message busy degree decide that BTS send which type paging message.BTS will send
Type 3 message when paging message of is very busy. BTS send Type 2 message when it is not too
busy. BTS send Type1 when it is not busy. When paging message is little or no paging message, Ms
can receive Type 1 paging message. But message content maybe is null.
When BTS only send IMSI paging, BTS can't send Type 2 or Type 3 and only send Type 1 message.
Every block have up 2 paging message. So TMSI paging capacity is double of IMSI paging capacity.
BTS paging capability when extreme cases(4 TMSI or 2 IMSI in CCCH block )

In fact, paging message is not smooth. BTS sometime send TMSI and sometime send IMSI.Therefore,
practical and effective sharing of CCCH blocks should be discounted. Lets assume that 50% of its. So
the result is as follows.

BTS will discard some paging message which can't be handled when bulk paging come. Because there
are a variety of paging type of the mixed, so handling paging capability can't up to capacity.

4.2 T305 & T308 Ti mers
According to the Protocol, Channel Release message is sent from MSC. If MSC can send CLCMD
message to force to disconnect link before T200 expiry (No response from MS to MSC), this call isnt
deemed as radio drop. This case only occurs after one Party ends the call normally.
Two timers of MSC are related to above flow.
1. T305: When MSC sends Disconnect Message, T305 starts. This message carries the cause of
disconnection. T305 stops when MSC receives Release message from MS. If T305 expires, MSC
sends Forced Release to MS.
2. T308: After MSC sends Release Message, T308 starts. T308 stops when MSC receives Release
Complete from MS. If T308 expires, MSC repeats Release and starts T308 again. If T308 expires twice,
MSC sends Clear Command to BSC forcing to release radio resource.
