1 Changes in BSS KPI Reference

This describes the changes of BSS KPI Reference.

2 Introduction to KPI

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

3 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.

4 CS Retainability KPIs

This describes the CS Retainability KPIs that indicate the ratio of moving MSs to all MSs, the
moving frequency. In addition, these KPIs indicate the capability of providing continuous
services.A low success rate leads to low user satisfaction.

5 CS Mobility KPIs

This describes the CS Retainability KPIs that indicate 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.

6 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.

7 CS CPU Usage KPI

This describes the CS CPU Usage KPI that indicates the mean ratio of the busy time of the CPU
in a Granularity Period.

8 CS Receive Quality KPIs

This describes the CS Receive Quality KPIs that indicate the mean receive quality rank on the
TCH.

9 PS Accessibility KPIs

HUAWEI BSC6000 Base Station Subsystem
BSS KPI Reference About This Document

This describes the PS Accessibility KPIs that indicate whether MSs can easily access cells. Poor
PS Accessibility KPIs directly affect user satisfaction.

10 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.

11 PS Transmission Performance KPIs

This describes thePS Transmission Performance 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.

12 PS Resource Utilization Rate KPIs

This describes the PS Resource Utilization Rate 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.

13 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.

14 PS Delay KPIs

This describes the PS Delay KPIs that indicate the service response speed of the network. Long
delay affects user satisfaction.

15 PS Data Throughput Rate KPIs

This describes the PS Data Throughput Rate KPIs. They involve the performance factors
associated with the terminals, the radio access network, and the core network. Now, the main
performance problem is concerned with 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.

BSS KPI Reference 2 Introduction to KPI

2 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 2-1 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 Mobility KPIs
l Resource Utilization KPIs
l CPU Usage KPIs
l Receive Quality KPIs
The PS KPIs can be categorized into the following:
l Accessibility KPIs
l Retainability KPIs
l Transmission Performance KPIs
l Resource utilization Rate KPIs
l Throughput KPIs
l Delay KPIs
l Data Throughput Rate 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.

6 CS Resource Utilization KPIs

About This Chapter

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.

14.1 PING Delay


Table 14-1 PING Delay
Counter PING Delay

Description The PING delay is the difference between the time when the MS sends
an ICMP packet of the Return Request type and the time when the
receiving end responds with an ICMP packet of the Return
Acknowledgment type. Two types of PING delay are available: initial
PING delay and consecutive PING delay.
l Initial PING delay
If the interval between two consecutive PING operations is longer
than 9000 ms, the MS enters the Packet Idle Mode. If the PING
operation is re-initiated, the TBF established on the CCCH is used.
Therefore, the initial PING delay is longer.
l Consecutive PING delay
If the interval between two consecutive PING operations is shorter
than 500 ms, the PCU uses the uplink delay release or downlink delay
release policy. This avoids the TBF establishment for the following
PING operations or the TBF re-establishment on the PACCH. This
PING delay is relatively shorter.

15 PS Data Throughput Rate KPIs

About This Chapter

This describes the PS Data Throughput Rate KPIs. They involve the performance factors
associated with the terminals, the radio access network, and the core network. Now, the main
performance problem is concerned with 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.

15.1 GRPS Data Transmission Rate


Table 15-1 GRPS Data Transmission Rate
Counter GRPS Data Transmission Rate

Description This measurement provides the amount of data transmitted every second
by the GPRS system. The GPRS throughput focuses mainly on the
throughput at the RLC/MAC layer and the throughput at the application
layer. The test of the throughput at the RLC/MAC layer is difficult.
Therefore, the throughput we discuss generally refers to the throughput
at the application layer. The throughput at the RLC/MAC layer is
generally higher than that at the application layer.
