EIB-XXX-RAN-TMA

Purpose

Tower Mounted Amplifier is used to minimize the path imbalance due to weak uplink signal strength on a cell. TMA also enhances the uplink signal strength in order to reduce the ping pong handovers due to weak uplink. TMA will be installed in CMPak network to increase uplink signal strength and to improve customers’ perception.

Step By Step Procedure

#

Step

Responsibility

 

Description

Step 1

Choose the right Cell*

RAN

This is very important for TMA project to choose the right cell for TMA use. RAN Optimization team will select the list of cells where TMA is required. This will be done by monitoring cell statistical data

Optimization

Step 2

EAS Dry Connection Availability

FOPs

It

is responsibility of FOPs to make sure that at least one dry

connection is available for selected cell for External Alarm

 

Patching. This can also be done by removing already patched alarms having least importance.

Step 3

Project Execution Plan and Timeline

Vendor

Final list of cells will be given to the vendor to submit the project execution plan and timeline accordingly

Step 4

Assignment of Work Order

RAN

A

12 hours work order will be assigned to vendor to perform

Optimization

installation activity, as this activity involves sector lock.

 

and OMC

Step 5

Project Execution

Vendor

TMA installation will be performed by Vendor according to the submitted plan

Step 6

Site Access

FOPs

CMPak FOPs will be responsible to make access to the sites for vendor to install TMA.

Step 7

TMA Installation and EAS Patching

Vendor

Vendor will be responsible for TMA installation and External Alarm patching for the cell

Step 8

Initial Test*

FOPs and

Along with the Vendor Fops will conduct the initial test before and after the activity if all installations are done correctly

Vendor

Step 9

Removal of Snags, if any

Vendor

In case of any service affecting snags it shall be removed immediately , for other Vendor will have 2 days to fix the issue.

Step

RF Performance

RAN

After TMA installation and removal of all Snags, RAN Optimization will monitor the stats and prepare benchmark report of the change. In case of any ambiguities found FOPS and Vendor will be intimated.

10

Analysis*

Optimization

Step

TMA PAT

RAN

After monitory for 7 days from installation of TMA, RAN Optimization and FOPs will sign the PAT document.

How to choose the right cell:

It is very important to choose the right cell to install TMA. This can be done by analyzing statistical data and user behaviour.

‐ Path Imbalance (‐ve value) depicts weak uplink signal strength, cells with high path imbalance values

High number of ping pong uplink handovers for a cell due to weak uplink signal strength

High number of call drop rate due to weak uplink signal strength

Poor uplink signal quality due to weak signal strength

Average high TA for the cell

Recent Alarms on the cell

‐ Hardware faults that may impact path balance

Cell should be selected on the basis of at least 15 days trend

Initial Test:

Before TMA Installation

Following test must be conducted before the TMA is installed on the cell. This will be performed by vendor and CMPak FOPs

Complete health check of cell

Antenna Physical Parameters (Azimuth, Tilt, Height)

VSWR

TRX Power

After TMA Installation

Following test must be conducted after the TMA is installed on the cell. This will be performed by vendor and CMPak FOPs

Complete health check of cell

Antenna Physical Parameters (Azimuth, Tilt, Height)

VSWR

TRX Power

Total Output Power

Cable Loss

‐ Installation should be as per the agreed layout provided by the vendor.

Tagging should be complete (for TMA, Alarm cables, Jumpers)

‐ Proper grounding of PDU and TMA.

Proper power connections of PDU in rectifier with suitable wiring connections and Tee Bias.

All alarms are checked and removed. Cable loss, insertion loss etc. should be as per the below the specified threshold.

Weather proofing and finishing tape on jumper cables and connectors should be installed.

Proper fixing of TMA on mount (with appropriate clamps).

Proper cable layout and is arrangement is done cleanly.

All snags are removed.

External alarms are working.

VSWR is below the threshold.

Ensure the entire check list is complete.

PAT document is filled accurately.

KPIs to be monitored:

Following are the KPIs to be checked/ verified after installation of TMA

Path Balance

Uplink level & Quality handover performance

Downlink level and Quality handovers

Call drop rate (Inc and Exc HO)

Uplink level and Quality Samples

VSWR
