2. QUICK START WIZARD


When Xeus 2013 is launched, the Start Page will be visible. See the figure below:
To start working with Xeus 2013, you will need to create a new project. The quickest way to do this is via
the Start Page.
Click on New Project as seen in the figure below.

Figure 2.0: Project Dialog Box

This will launch the New Project wizard which will guide you through the Project Creation process.

STEP 1:
In the New Project dialog box, enter your Project Name, Location of your project files and Map
Projection to be used.

Figure 2.1: New Project Dialog Box

Click OK when done.


STEP 2:
In the Network Import Wizard Dialog box, select the format type in which you have your network data.
Network data includes data such as site lat/long, cellId, LAC, channel and neighbor information.
For more information on the format types, click on the Help button at the bottom of the dialog box.
Depending on the format type selected, the next dialog box will differ slightly.
For the purposes of illustration, let us select TEMS Cel File as in the figure below and click Next to

STEP 3:
Click Browse and select the TEMS Cel file to import. If the Cel file has carrier and neighbor information,
select the check-box under Options to Import Carrier & Neighbor Data.
As this is a new project creation, leave the check-box Remove Existing Data unchecked. This option is
used only if a previous cel file has been imported and you would like to remove all network data from
that import.
When ready, click next to continue.

You will now see the Parsing in Progress screen as in the figure below. Wait until the parsing is
complete.
Once parsing is complete, Xeus will warn if there were any inconsistencies encountered during the
import process.

Figure 2.4: Parsing Result Dialog Box

Inconsistencies reported may need to be checked and corrected as accuracy of the imported data is
extremely important to ensure Xeus analysis toolkit and smart algorithms provide accurate results.

16

input to Xeus 2013 to get the most out of the product.
Once you are sure there are no or inconsequential inconsistencies, click Finish to complete the network
import process and start the map display.
