About This Chapter

This describes the key performance indicators (KPIs). According to the indicated performance,
KPIs are classified into CS KPIs and PS KPIs.

5.1 Introduction to KPI


This describes the KPI, which is used to monitor the network performance and detect network
problems.
5.2 CS Accessibility KPIs
This describes the CS accessibility KPIs that mainly indicate the call success rate when a MS
accesses the network. Low accessibility KPIs directly lead to low user satisfaction.
5.3 CS Retainability KPIs
This describes the CS Retainability KPIs that indicate the ratio of moving MSs to all MSs, the
moving frequency, and the success rate of handovers on the move. In addition, these KPIs
indicate the capability of providing continuous services. A low handover success rate may lead
to a high call drop rate. A low success rate leads to low user satisfaction.
5.4 CS Resource Utilization KPIs
This describes the CS Resource Utilization KPIs that are used to monitor the load of hot cells
and the network. These KPIs can serve as references for capacity expansion. The traffic volume
KPIs help to obtain the ratio of busy-hour traffic to idle-hour traffic, to evaluate the utilization
of system resources, and to adjust charges. The equipment availability KPIs help to know the
running status of equipment, such as the running status of channels. If these KPIs are low,
equipment and transmission may be faulty.
5.5 PS Throughput KPIs
This describes the PS Throughput KPIs that are used to monitor the load of hot cells and the
network and to obtain service models. These KPIs can serve as references for capacity expansion.
The PS Throughput KPIs help to obtain the busy-hour PS traffic and the idle-hour PS traffic, to
evaluate the utilization of system resources, and to facilitate service assessment of carriers.
5.6 PS Transmission KPIs
This describes the PS Transmission KPIs that indicate the quality of radio transmission links in
a cell. If the RLC data block retransmission rate in a cell is high, the quality of the radio
transmission links in the cell is poor. Therefore, take corresponding measures, such as RF
optimization.

5.7 PS Accessibility KPIs


This describes the PS Accessibility KPIs that indicate whether MSs can easily access cells. Poor
PS Accessibility KPIs directly affect user satisfaction.
5.8 PS Resource Utilization KPIs
This describes the PS Resource Utilization KPIs that indicate the utilization of the network
resource and the busy states of services. Thus, these KPIs can be used to guide network
expansion.
5.9 PS Retainability KPIs
This describes the PS Retainability KPIs that mainly involve the uplink and downlink TBF call
drop rates. These KPIs indicate the capability of providing continuous services by the network
and are directly related to user satisfaction. Thus, an increase in call drop rate directly leads to
a decrease in user satisfaction.
5.10 PS End-to-End Delay KPIs
This describes the PS End-to-End Delay KPIs that indicate the service response speed of the
network. Long delay affects user satisfaction.
5.11 PS End-to-End Quality KPIs
This describes the PS end-to-end quality KPIs. They involve the performance factors of
terminals, the radio access network, and the core network. Now, the main performance problem
comes from the radio access network. Therefore, these KPIs indicate the end-to-end service data
link bearing capability of the GPRS network, which are directly related to user satisfaction.

5.1 Introduction to KPI


This describes the KPI, which is used to monitor the network performance and detect network
problems.

KPI Attributes
Each KPI has the following attributes:
l Measurement object: indicates the measurement scope of a KPI, such as BSC level, PCU
level, or cell level.
l Measurement set: describes the signaling or algorithm of collecting a KPI, such as call
access and TBF establishment.
l Measurement service: indicates the service type of a KPI, such as CS service or PS service.

Measurement Set
Figure 5-1 shows the measurement set of the CS domain performance counters. Call
measurement and channel measurement are very important. Most of performance counters are
distributed in the two measurement sets.
l Call measurement: refers to the measurement of call services in a BSC.
l Channel measurement: refers to the measurement of various counters related to channels.

Classification of KPIs
KPIs that are commonly used in routine monitoring can be classified according to the indicated
performance.
The CS KPIs can be categorized into the following:
l Accessibility KPIs
l Retainability KPIs
l Resource Utilization KPIs
The PS KPIs can be categorized into the following:
l Throughput KPIs
l Transmission KPIs
l Accessibility KPIs
l Resource utilization KPIs
l Retainability KPIs
l End-to-End Delay KPIs
l End-to-End Quality KPIs

Collection of KPIs
CS KPIs per cell and KPIs per BSC can be viewed and analyzed on the M2000. KPIs can be
exported from the M2000 as .csv, .xls, .html, or .txt files. In addition, CS KPIs per BSC can be
viewed and analyzed through the BSC6000 intelligent report system. KPIs can be exported from
the BSC6000 intelligent report system as .csv, .xls, .html, or .txt files.
PS KPIs, such as Throughput KPIs, Transmission KPIs, Accessibility KPIs, Resource utilization
KPIs, and Retainability KPIs can be viewed and analyzed on the M2000. KPIs can be exported
from the M2000 as .csv, .xls, .html, or .txt files.

In addition, PS KPIs can be set and queried through the OMC traffic console.

End-to-end performance KPIs can be queried through Drive Test and Call Quality Test.

NOTE

The measurement object has time spans, and KPIs are collected on schedule; therefore, KPI collection may
span different periods.
If the KPIs reflect the actual status of the measurement object at a moment, the KPI collection inevitably
spans different periods.
