2. 3 Dat aPr o suppor t
[Case 49280] Improvements have been made so that Analyzer can now handle
log files in which the clocks of the devices is out of sync by several days. Before
this release, the log files would load but the relative time for some devices
would be always 0.
[Case 49066] Support for MediaFlo has been improved.
2. 4 Er i csson UETR / GPEH suppor t
The GPEH event detection used to match the Analyzer event detection for

same session (i.e. log files that have the same root name, such as
FILENAME.1.nmf, FILENAME.2.nmf, FILENAME.3.nmf,) are loaded as a
single file with one stream per device:

[Case 49345] Nemo format specific attributes have all been moved under
Vendor Specific > Nemo node in Attribute Explorer:

[Case 49087] Frequency band-specific attributes are now set for GSM scanners:
ScanSortBSIC_by_SigLevel_GSM1800
ScanSortChannelNo_by_SigLevel_GSM1800
ScanSortSigLevel_by_SigLevel_GSM1800
or
ScanSortBSIC_by_SigLevel_GSM1800_1900
ScanSortChannelNo_by_SigLevel_GSM1800_or_1900
ScanSortSigLevel_by_SigLevel_GSM1800_or_1900
The GSM1800_or_1900 attributes are set when the frequency band is PCS
1900, or when it is not possible to tell from the Nemo message whether the
measurement is for DCS 1800 or PCS 1900 band.
[Case 49242] Nemo parameter Cellular Technology is now set as an

[Case 48647] A problem has been resolved that prevented Nemo log files from
loading when the first message in the file was a BLER message.
This release improves the Service attributes in the Data Testing node
(Service_Id, Event_Service_Init, Event_Service_Start).
Event_Service_Start is now set when the UE is assigned an IP address.
Event_Service_End or Event_Service_Fail are now set when the UE loses its
IP address (after a PDP Context deactivation, a PS Detach).
A problem has been resolved whereby the UMTS RSSI attribute
UTRA_UE_CarrierRssi could be set wrongly to 0.
2. 7 PCTEL suppor t
[Case 49433] New LTE attributes are now set for the Carrier to Interference +
Noise (CINR) ratio measured on the Reference Signal and on the combined
Synchronisation Signals.
Cellrefs look-up functionality has been improved for iDEN scanners. In the
December 2009 release, a temporary solution was implemented in setting iDEN
handset attributes. In this release, the cellrefs look-up algorithm has been
improved so that it can also work off the iDEN scanner attributes. The iDEN
handset attributes are no longer set for iDEN scanners.
Added support for BCH Top N message for WCDMA scanners.
2. 8 Rohde & Schwar z suppor t
[Case 49602] New LTE attributes are now set for Carrier to Interference +
Noise (CINR) measured on the Reference Signal and on the combined
Synchronisation Signals.
2. 9 Swi ssQual Di ver si t y / Qual i poc suppor t
Support for HSUPA chipset measurements has been improved, so that more
attributes are now set under UMTS > UpLink Measurements > HSUPA.
2. 10 Gener i c
[Case 48015] In UMTS, the RRC Rel. 6 non-critical extensions of RRC
Connection Request message are no longer licensed to HSUPA. These non-
critical extensions are now decoded with a UMTS license.
