Product Overview

This chapter provides an overview of the hardware and software components in Diversity Optimizer.

Diversity Optimizer
Diversity Optimizer is a 2G, 3G, and 4G RF optimization tool that has been designed for field engineers on the road. Optimizer is compatible with more than 100 devices, including standard handsets, Android smartphones, data modems, and RF scanners. Designed to be as simple to use in the field as possible, and yet incorporating the latest analysis capabilities, Diversity Optimizer is a full, professional RF optimization toolset that can be learned in minutes. The Introduction wizard helps you to configure the tool, automatically detect devices, and to start and monitor tests. The highly efficient and customizable user interface can display more than 900 measurement values in customizable maps, line charts, bar charts, pie charts, list boxes, and tables. Diversity Optimizer also includes the MapInfo MapX map plotting software, which you can use to load BTS lists into the Optimizer map monitor for an overview of the serving and neighbouring BTS sectors. You can also save and load drive test paths in MapInfo format. With multiple map monitors and map layer offsetting, the analysis of multiple values becomes very easy. When a GPS signal is unavailable, you can add waypoints to a photo of an indoor floor plan that you have loaded into Optimizer, for example, a photo that you took with the PC camera. Diversity Optimizer supports the full logging and decoding of multiple protocol layers on all technologies, including 3GPP, 3GPP2 RF, L2, L3, TCP/IP/PPP, RTSP, WAP, SIP, and so on. Optimizer also supports the static and dynamic real-time forcing of technology, frequency band, channel, cell barring, and handover specifically for optimization tasks. The handover history and missing neighbour events are logged and tasks can be configured with single, parallel or Multi-RAB/DTM execution. If you want, you can create customizable alerting events based on L1 values, L3 messages, call markers, and other triggers. Diversity Optimizer displays data in real time during data collection and saves the data to measurement files. You can post-process these files with multiple file replays. You can also use the search function to find points of interest such as Dropped calls, Layer 3 messages, technology, operator, KPI thresholds, and RF channel numbers. Diversity Optimizer allows you to export to CSV, Google Earth, and MapInfo data formats: The standard Diversity Optimizer license includes the following functionality: Standard Voice CS: Includes the call to any number test, which can set up a speech call connection to any number that automatically responds. This test allows you to measure call setup success rate, call drop rate, call completion rate, call setup time, handover statistics, speech service coverage as well as certain additional service KPIs. Standard Data: Sets up PS data connection to any access point name and measure success rate, drop rate, completion rate. This license includes FTP UL, FTP DL, HTTP Browser, HTTP Transfer GET/PUT and Ping testing with corresponding KPIs.

You can also purchase licences to test and troubleshoot the following services: Voice telephony: CS and VoIP Speech MOS (narrow and wideband), Noise Suppression, Echo, and RTT Data: Ping Trace, UDP DL, Iperf UDP, and Capacity Test (multi-thread testing) Browsing: WAP and HTTP Messaging: SMS, MMS, and E-mail Video over IP: Video IP portals and YouTube with Full Reference and No Reference methods

Connection Module (MCM) and to install the respective Windows drivers. You do not need additional hardware to perform speech quality measurements on Android smartphones.

Installing Windows Device Drivers


After you have installed Diversity Optimizer, you need to install the Windows drivers for the measurement devices that you want to use. However, before you install a measurement device, you need to disable the Windows automatic driver download option.

To disable the automatic driver download option in Windows 7


1. Type Change device installation settings in the search box on the Start menu and press ENTER. 2. Click No, let me choose what to do. 3. Click Never install driver software from Windows update, and then click Save Changes.

Figure 3-5 Device Installation Settings

To install the Windows driver for a measurement device


1. In the Drivers folder on the installation DVD, unzip the Device_Drivers.zip file to a local folder. 2. Install the Windows driver for your measurement device. a b Locate the folder for your device \..\<name of device>\Driver folder, double-click the installer, and then follow the instructions. Connect the device to your computer and wait for Windows to configure the driver. To connect a USB device, connect the cable to a USB port on your computer. To connect a data card, insert the card in the PC Card slot of the computer. To connect a scanner, connect the cable to a USB port, and then turn on the scanner.

Important: Mobile broadband modems often install connection manager software that runs automatically after you connect the device. A connection manager can conflict with the Diversity software so its very important that its not running when you are using Diversity.

Installing Bluetooth GPS


1. Switch on the GPS and enable Bluetooth on the PC 2. Follow the instructions from the GPS manufacturer to pair the device with your computer.

First Steps

This chapter describes how to begin to use Diversity Optimizer. For more detailed information, see the Manual NQView.pdf document and the online help that you can access with Ctrl+H.

Starting Diversity Optimizer for the First Time


The Optimizer software consists of NQView, which you use to configure, control, and monitor tests and Diversity Core that runs in the background. A configuration wizard opens the first time that you start Optimizer. This wizard guides you through the initial configuration steps. A red exclamation mark (!) indicates that you need to perform an action whereas a green check mark () symbol indicates that you do not need to take an action.

To configure Optimizer with the wizard


1. Double-click the Optimizer icon on your Windows Desktop.

Figure 5-1 NQView and Diversity Core startup screens

Note: The first start can take several minutes. Subsequent starts are much faster. 2. If the wizard does not open, click Introduction wizard on the File menu in NQView. 3. (Optional) Add the operator information for your location to the Diversity configuration database, for example, MCC, MNC and APN. Although this step is optional, this information can help you to configure tests later on in the process.

Creating Advanced Tasks and Jobs


The Tasks and Jobs panel is where you specify and manage measurement settings for advanced measurement scenarios. A measurement task consists of at least one job, which in turn consists of at least one test. A measurement campaign consists of one or more measurement tasks. For a description of these terms, see the "Glossary" on page 3. Tip: At any point during the configuration process, press CTRL+H to open the NQView help window.

Creating a Measurement Task


The following procedure describes how to create a measurement task by first creating a job, a forcing profile, and then the task. If you want, you can also create a job and a forcing profile within the task editor by clicking the yellow asterisk beside the relevant item in the editor, for example, beside the Forcing A/B side list or beside the Job list.

To create a new measurement task


1. Create a job. a b c d e f In the Job definitions node of the Measurement tasks tree on the Tasks and Jobs panel, rightclick a job type, for example Data, and click Add job. In the Job editor, type a name for the new job in the Name box, for example, FTP DL 100MB UL 10MB. Specify the job settings and click OK. In the Test editor that opens, type a name for the test in the Name box. In the Test type list, click the type of test that you want to create, for example FTP.

Using a Network Event to Pause a Task


Diversity has a network event trigger that you might find useful for 3G-2G network testing. Example: Long speech call testing is widely used to measure 3G-2G speech service coverage and to spot dropped calls. To avoid a situation in which a phone remains in a 2G network after handover from a 3G network, you can use the 3G-2G IRAT HO network event to stop a measurement and the 2G-3G IRAT Reselection event to restart the measurement.
