Filters Introduction Standard Geographical Drive Based Other 46 www.360cellutions.com


Introduction FDI has a comprehensive range of filters to limit the drive samples based on different criteria Multiple filters can be applied to create a composite filter Filters can be saved or loaded Once a filter is applied to a map window, any new element layer will show only filtered samples Filters 47 www.360cellutions.com


Standard 48 Pre-defined filters like low coverage, pilot pollution, multi-server, interference etc The constants used in standard filters can be altered at the time of project creation The map shows EcNo of first Active set only for samples with high pilot pollution (delta of AS1 and AS3 is less than 5 dB) Every technology has standard filters associated with it Filters AS3 EcNo without filter AS3 EcNo with filter www.360cellutions.com Filter Standard


Geographical Selection: User can select samples with selection tool View: Samples visible in the active map Vicinity: Samples in the vicinity of the selected sample are filtered, based on preceding and succeeding ratio given by the user Polygon: Samples within a pre-defined polygon (shown in picture) Position: One sample for every coordinate, based on min or max value of element layer Filters 49 www.360cellutions.com Filters: Vicinity, Selection and View

Drive Based:

Drive Based Palette: Selected ranges by the user (shown in the picture with and without palette filter) Spectrum: Selected frequencies from the drive Search criteria: Drive samples matching user selected criteria e.g. SC and UARFCN for 3G Filters 50 www.360cellutions.com Filter Palette


Other Custom: Adhoc query can be designed as a SQL wizard Advanced: Drive samples selected on criteria of cells from cell file e.g. select samples of co-located sites only Filters 51 www.360cellutions.com

Log Processing And Project Creation:

Log Processing And Project Creation Database Configuration Cellfile New Project Settings 87 www.360cellutions.com


Database Project Creation A project is made by the user which has multiple logfiles and a cellfile as input Multiple projects are maintained on user’s hard-drive and can be shared with other users Project Size and Speed 2.5 GB logs takes about 30 minutes for project creation Project size is controlled by lowering sampling rate using binning Virtually unlimited number of logfiles can be used to create a project Data Collection For data collection tools like TEMS which give encrypted logs, an export is required. The export template is provided for such tools Other data collection tools like NEMO, logs can be used to make projects directly Mariadb 5.5 is the database used for project creation, which supports import of very large files and creation of big projects of about 10GB Log Processing And Project Creation 88 Create Project www.360cellutions.com Project Administration


Configuration Configuration Files FDI is designed for scalability and flexibility due to the nature of business Various technologies and data collection tools are defined as configuration files Any changes to technology like addition of new element e.g. Monitored Neighbour 8, can be done in the configuration without any change to the source code New technology addition or new tool compatibility is a matter of updating the configuration file or making a new configuration file Log Processing And Project Creation 89 www.360cellutions.com

Cell File:

Cell File Cell File Import FDI has ultimate flexibility for cell file import Any file in excel, text or csv format can be imported which FDI will try to map onto required fields. Users can manually change mapping if required Column Mapping Field description is given to show the user what data type is required for each field Conversions can also be applied for advanced users e.g convert lat , lon from other formats to decimal Filters can discard unwanted data from cell file e.g. discard all cities except London Log Processing And Project Creation 90 www.360cellutions.com

New Project Settings:

New Project Settings Quick projects can be created which are created approx 40% faster and only the footprint feature gets disabled Standard filter definitions can be altered e.g. low coverage threshold Large network cell files can be confined to drive test area One or more technologies in drive test can be ignored Log Processing And Project Creation 91 www.360cellutions.com
