Additional Notes:

1. UMTS/GSM Inconsistencies

When building a 2G/3G network in Mentor, a UMTS-GSM discrepancy report will be created. This
report should be analyzed carefully for:

BCCH/BSIC inconsistencies between GSM and UMTS OSS. As GSM sector are defined as
external on the UMTS OSS, their BCCH/BSIC may not have been updated during GSM retune. Those
warnings should be corrected immediately.

LAC/CI inconsistencies between GSM and UMTS OSS. A few possibilities:

o As GSM sector are defined as external on the UMTS OSS, their LAC/CI may not
have been updated during GSM BSC re-homes. Verify if that LAC/CI combination
actually exist in GSM network

o You may not have included the entire GSM SD for the area. A GSM
BSS/OSS/Other vendor SD may be missing in your network. Recover that information
and rebuild env. This happens at border between vendors

o A GSM sector may exist in GSM OSS but was not included in your environment. It
was missing from your GSM coordinates file.

Build the GSM environment in Forte and look for sectors missing
coordinates. Add them to your coordinate file and rebuild env in Mentor
(submit to server if server is used)

If not, use the GSM Import detail report (when building env from
Configuration file, not from server) to find those sector missing coordinates.
Add them to your coordinate file and rebuild env in Mentor (submit to server if
server is used)

Those inconsistencies will reduce your ability to optimize the NL as unknown neighbors will not be
touched. They will also prevent those handover to occur. It is recommended to fix them if possible, but
it is not a show-stopper and Mentor will optimize the network around them.

2. Reasons for UMTS/GSM Measurement Plan

a. Missing neighbors will not be reported by the Ue


b. The Ue will only measure (during compressed mode) the existing BCCH of GSM
neighbors and report only the existing BCCH/BSIC of GSM neighbors
c. Any other BCCH will not be scanned and therefore not reported
d. Any other BCCH/BSIC will be discarded and not reported even when measured
e. Only way to find a missing neighbor is to create it and measure of it actually has any HO
count (Trial and error process)
