  3. 3. E2ETELE.COM Typical Problem to Address • 2G, 3G, 4G network budget planning – What is the remaining capacity of my radio network? – What extra equipment is needed if traffic grows by x%? – Where to invest extra radio capacity? • And also .. – How to convince management that the analysis is rigourous?

E2ETELE.COM RADIODIM key features  Advanced multiclass Erlang models for GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSPA, LTE  Modeling based on latest mathematical tools  But the minimum relevant complexity is applied: no need to search for better accuracy than traffic counters or asumptions which would not allow validation  Traffic counters as input for close link to reality  Installed equipment capacity and observed traffic as the basis for remaining capacity estimate  Accuracy indicators for solid justification  Error margins are provided on each cell for each scenario  Cell-by cell capacity analysis  Closes the gap between macrocoscopic budget planning and cell-by-cell capacity engineering  What-if scenarios for detailed engineering  What if the half-rate threshold is increased? What if the data busy hour is shifting? What if allyou-can eat data traffic promotion are launched? What if…  Natural work environment for network capacity engineers  Counters and configuration files extracted from the network and fed into an Excel environment E2ETELE.COM

  9. 9. E2ETELE.COM Real application case • • • • • A large mobile operator Every year at the budget planning meeting the network team defends its budget requirement based on capacity forecast and CAPEX needs for the next year Their method was not clear, not properly justified. The senior management could not understand and fully accept the required budget. One of the key issues was the improper modeling of half-rate and full-rate speech coexistence in the GSM network. Another one was the choice of a global method (parameter fit over a network-wide cloud of points) rather than a cell-by-cell analysis.Data and 3G were not properly included. By proposing the right Erlang modelling approach we were able to properly model the HR-FR mix. It was applied at cell-level which allowed a bottom-up approach: capacity analysis at each individual cell, then reasoning at site and BSC levels to assess the required number of TRX’s or new sectors or sites to add. Data capacity analysis allowed to compare the effect of different busy hours for voice and data. The team could assess the benefit of a dual-band layer and 3G overlay. The light tool and its natural inclusion in their current work environment allowed the team to rapidly take ownership of it. As a result, they now propose well justified CAPEX requirement for their 2G-3G network evolution. The tool is also applied to the daily capacity management work: it takes the traffic counters as an input and higlights the cells with capacity issues and provides capacity expansion recommendations.
