Whats In This Manual

This book catalogs all data presented in TEMS Investigation Data Collection and Route Analysis as well as all preconfigured presentation windows supplied in the two applications. Information elements in Data Collection and Route Analysis are covered in separate chapters. The IEs are mostly the same in both applications, but certain IEs as well as a number of entire IE categories are found only in Data Collection. A further reason for providing separate listings is the large number of minor differences between the applications in matters of naming, organization of arguments, and so on. These differences arise from the more sophisticated structuring of IEs in Route Analysis. Information Element Support in Connectable Equipment Some elements are presentable only with a subset of the connectable devices. See the tables in chapter 5, page 303.

Conventions

For the sake of brevity the following conventions are used in this book: The Data Collection Users Manual is referred to as DC UM. The Route Analysis Users Manual is referred to as RA UM.

Information Elements in Data Collection

The tables below list all information elements that can be presented by TEMS Investigation Data Collection. For ease of reference, each category on the Info Element tab is still covered in one single, alphabetically ordered list. (Certain deviations from strict alphabetical order occur in the application in order to achieve more logical orderings and groupings.) However, since the number and diversity of the information elements are great, a special column with codes is used in some tables to distinguish important subgroups among the elements.

Chapter 3. Information Elements in Data Collection

GSM Information Elements

Properties of Information Elements: The Asterisk Column In the column marked *, a set of codes is used to state conditions under which an information element is valid: a non-trivial condition must be fulfilled for the element to be valid not valid: the element is normally valid, but in certain circumstances it is not (code ends in ) extended compared to the simplest GSM case: the element sometimes carries more information, for example when frequency hopping is used (code ends in +)

If nothing is written in the asterisk column, the element is always valid (provided it is supported by the device). Code c g g+ Valid if a cell file is loaded. Valid when running GPRS. Not valid for voice. The element is richer for (E)GPRS, in one of the following ways: g ga h more values, i.e. more arguments e.g. C/I Best values have a more complex meaning e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots) larger range of possible values e.g. Channel Type. Meaning

Not valid when running (E)GPRS. Valid in GAN mode or for GAN-capable phones. Valid if frequency hopping is used.

LZT 108 9987 R2A

TEMS Investigation 10.1: Information Elements and Events

Code h+

Meaning The element is richer if frequency hopping is used. If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. No GPRS connection: One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63) GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on each channel (arguments 0 through 64 8 1 = 511). Exception: C/I Hopping List has only one value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63).

If frequency hopping is not used, the element contains values for the single channel employed. No GPRS connection: One single value (argument 0). GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on the channel (arguments 0 through 7).

Example: C/I Best. hc+ If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63). No separate values for each timeslot for a GPRS connection. Example: C/I Hopping List. h hs hs+ Not valid if frequency hopping is used. Valid when running HSCSD. Not valid for voice. The element is richer for HSCSD, in one of the following ways: hs p s more values, i.e. more arguments e.g. C/I Best values have a more complex meaning e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots) larger range of possible values e.g. Channel Type.

Not valid when running HSCSD. Reported by positioning equipment. Reported from GSM RSSI scanning.

Chapter 3. Information Elements in Data Collection

Code si

Meaning (Reported from interference scanning with a Sony Ericsson GSM phone.) This function is no longer supported in any connectable phone, but the information elements are retained in this description since old logfiles with interference scan data can still be replayed in the application. Reported from GSM spectrum scanning.

ss

Full and Sub Values Information elements with Full in their names are calculated on all blocks. Information elements with Sub in their names are calculated only on the blocks known to be sent also when downlink DTX is active (in each 104multiframe, one TCH block with SID information and one SACCH block). GSM RxLev Units GSM RxLev units are defined in 3GPP 45.008, section 8.1.4. Information Element Table
IE Name Adjacent RxLev Range/Unit 10 ... 100 GSM RxLev units Arg 1 ... 4 * h Description Signal strength of adjacent channel. Argument: 1: Serving cell 2 (400 kHz) 2: Serving cell 1 (200 kHz) 3: Serving cell +1 (+200 kHz) 4: Serving cell +2 (+400 kHz) Invalid if frequency hopping is used. Adjacent RxLev (dBm) 120 ... 10 dBm 1 ... 4 h Same as Adjacent RxLev but in dBm. Invalid if frequency hopping is used.

Separate sets of Finger elements are provided for the full number of UMTS frequencies that can be scanned simultaneously. The Motorola E1000 may report finger measurements on a number of different channels (see the elements Finger ... Position Type); the other devices that support finger measurements always report them on the CPICH. The Finger and Finger Position series of elements contain the same data. The latter series consists of arrays of size 2560 corresponding to the sequence of chips in a radio frame timeslot, with the received finger information positioned at the correct indices. These elements are provided for bar chart plotting. The Finger Slot Pos element is of course not needed in the Finger Position series and is consequently absent from it.

Description

These elements combine scrambling codes from all scanned UMTS frequencies, sorted by descending Aggr Ec/Io. The sorting order within the Best elements is not affected by the settings in the General window (see DC UM section 10.2.11.1). Regarding pilot scanning in general, see DC UM section 10.2. Argument (where present): 1 is the scrambling code with the highest Aggr Ec/Io, etc.

Pilot scanning: The aggregate code power of the scrambling code (Eb, energy per bit) relative to the total signal power in the channel (Io). Pilot scanning: The aggregate code power (energy per chip) of each scanned scrambling code. The aggregate code power is a measure of the total signal power (distributed around the main peak due to multipath propagation) that is above the PN threshold (see DC UM section 10.2.2). Pilot scanning: The aggregate code power of the scrambling code (Ec, energy per chip) relative to the total signal power in the channel (Io). Pilot scanning: The difference between the aggregate code power and peak code power.

Description Pilot scanning: Deduced name of the cell that uses each scanned scrambling code. The algorithm determining the cell name takes as input the SC number, the UARFCN, and the position reported. It searches the cell file for cells with matching SC number and UARFCN within a 50 km radius. If multiple matches are found, the cell closest to the position is selected. If no positioning data is available, the information element will still be presented, but the cell names may then of course be wrong. The algorithm in this case simply picks the first cell in the cell file with matching SC number and UARFCN. Invalid if no cell file is loaded.

WiMAX Information Elements

Notes on CINR The number of samples on which to base the CINR mean values and standard deviations is set in the WiMAX scan setup dialog (DC UM section 14.3.1, Number of Samples for Stats). However, this figure only serves as a guideline to the scanner; in practice the scanner may on some occasions use a lower number of samples as input to the statistics calculation. This number is reported in the Samples Taken elements (see below). Note that as power level fluctuations become minute, the standard deviation likewise approaches zero and hence tends towards negative infinity when expressed in dB. A large negative number has been used as the lower endpoint for the standard deviation range. Information Element Table

Data Service Testing Information Elements

This section lists the information elements in the Data category, i.e. those obtained when performing data service testing. The Data category contains two kinds of elements: Application-level data service measurements. In the PC, these are taken in the Winsock interface. Application-level measurements reflect the performance experienced directly by the user, as opposed to the performance at lower levels in the protocol hierarchy (RLC, LLC, RLP, etc.). Statistics on the dial-up connection obtained from Microsofts Remote Access Service (RAS), i.e. Dial-up Networking. Remember that not all data services are run over a dial-up connection (see DC UM section 15.11).

The Data information elements are mostly independent of the bearer service used (packet-switched or circuit-switched). A number of elements are however bearer-specific. Note the meaning of the terms connection and session which are used in the explanations below. They are defined in DC UM section 15.12.1.1. Information Element Table

Uplink (MTR) Information Elements

This section lists the information elements in the GSM Uplink category, i.e. those originating from MTR files. These information elements are found only in Data Collection. The GSM Uplink category includes further elements besides those listed, including RxLev and RxQual (Full and Sub) for both uplink and downlink. All such elements have precisely the same ranges and meanings as the corresponding elements in section 3.1, and so they have been omitted here. No uplink information elements are valid when running GPRS/EGPRS. No uplink data can be recorded in MTR files when running a data service. Information Element Table

GSM Information Elements

Properties of Information Elements: The Asterisk Column In the column marked *, a set of codes is used to state conditions under which an information element is valid: a non-trivial condition must be fulfilled for the element to be valid not valid: the element is normally valid, but in certain circumstances it is not (code ends in ) extended compared to the simplest GSM case: the element sometimes carries more information, for example when frequency hopping is used (code ends in +)

If nothing is written in the asterisk column, the element is always valid and is reported by all supported phones. Code c g g+ Valid if a cell file is loaded. Valid when running GPRS. Not valid for voice. The element is richer for (E)GPRS, in one of the following ways: g more values, i.e. more arguments e.g. C/I values have a more complex meaning e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots) larger range of possible values e.g. Channel Type. Meaning

Not valid when running (E)GPRS.

LZT 108 9987 R2A

181

TEMS Investigation 10.1: Information Elements and Events

Code h+

Meaning The element is richer if frequency hopping is used. If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. No GPRS connection: One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63) GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on each channel (arguments 0 through 64 8 1 = 511). Exception: C/I Hopping List has only one value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63).

If frequency hopping is not used, the element contains values for the single channel employed. No GPRS connection: One single value (argument 0). GPRS: One value for each timeslot used on the channel (arguments 0 through 7).

Example: C/I. hc+ If frequency hopping is used, the element covers all channels in the hopping list. One value for each channel (arguments 0 through 63). No separate values for each timeslot for a GPRS connection. Example: C/I Hopping List. hs hs+ Valid when running HSCSD. Not valid for voice. The element is richer for HSCSD, in one of the following ways: hs more values, i.e. more arguments e.g. C/I values have a more complex meaning e.g. C/I Hopping List (average over timeslots) larger range of possible values e.g. Channel Type.

Not valid when running HSCSD.

WCDMA Information Elements

Notes on Quantities Denoting Signal Power See section 3.2, page 58. Multiple-antenna vs. Single-antenna Information Elements Certain information elements have attributes as follows. Single Antenna: Only one antenna used (no MIMO). Antenna 1, Antenna 2, Sum: These attributes are applicable when MIMO is used and allows extraction of values for either or both of the antennas employed.

Note that the MIMO vs. non-MIMO distinction is expressed differently in the attributes of certain other IEs.

Finger Info

The Rake fingers are not sorted by signal strength; they come in the order they are reported. Rake fingers are reported separately for each UMTS frequency. The Motorola E1000 may report finger measurements on a number of different channels (see the element Finger Position Type); the other devices that support finger measurements always report them on the CPICH. The Finger and Finger Position series of elements contain the same data. The latter series contains arrays of size 2560 corresponding to the sequence of chips in a radio frame timeslot, with the received finger information positioned at the correct indices. These elements are provided for bar chart plotting. The Finger Slot Position element is of course not needed in the Finger Position series and is consequently absent from it. Two arguments are used. The first represents the UMTS frequency; the second represents either the Rake finger number (Finger series) or the chip index (Finger Position series).

Description

The attributes for these elements have the following meanings: Not sorted: Scrambling codes are ordered by index (no ranking). Lowest index first. Strongest: Scrambling codes are ranked by Aggr Ec/Io in descending order, for each scanned UMTS frequency separately. Weakest: Scrambling codes are ranked by Aggr Ec/Io in ascending order, for each scanned UMTS frequency separately. Best (among all frequencies): Scrambling codes from all scanned UMTS frequencies are ranked by descending Aggr Ec/Io in a single list. The first argument is always 1 in this case. Argument 1: UMTS frequency. Frequencies are ordered by ascending UARFCN. This argument is not used with the attribute Best (see above). Argument 2: Scrambling code. Scrambling codes are ordered as specified by the chosen attribute (see above). Some Sc elements are not differentiated for scrambling codes and therefore lack this argument. 10 ... 21 dB 1 ... 4; 1 ... 512 Pilot scanning: The aggregate code power of the scrambling code (Eb, energy per bit) relative to the total signal power in the channel (Io).

It searches the cell file for cells with matching SC number and UARFCN within a 50 km radius. If multiple matches are found, the cell closest to the position is selected. If no positioning data is available, the information element will still be presented, but the cell names may then of course be wrong. The algorithm in this case simply picks the first cell in the cell file with matching SC number and UARFCN. Requires cell file and positioning. See also general remarks above.

4.4.19.1. Pilot Scanning


The attributes for these elements have the following meanings: Not sorted: Pilots are ordered by PN offset (no ranking). Lowest PN offset first. Strongest: Pilots are ranked by descending peak Ec/Io for each scanned RF channel separately. Elements that are not differentiated for pilots lack this argument. Weakest: Pilots are ranked by ascending peak Ec/Io for each scanned RF channel separately. Elements that are not differentiated for pilots lack this argument. Best (among all frequencies): Pilots from all scanned RF channels are ranked by descending peak Ec/Io in a single list. The first argument is always 1 in this case. Argument 1: RF channel. RF channels are ordered by ascending index. This argument is not used with the attribute Best (see above). Argument 2: PN offset. Pilots are ordered as specified by the chosen attribute (see above). Some elements are not differentiated for pilots and therefore lack this argument.

In the Information Elements column, <string>* means all IEs beginning with <string>. A gray checkmark means that the IE support is restricted to a subset of the devices in the column; see the accompanying footnote for details. The tables include certain devices that are no longer connectable in this version of TEMS Investigation; these devices are printed in non-boldface. They are retained here since old logfiles recorded with the devices can still be replayed in the application. There also exist information elements which are unique to one or more of these devices.

Notes on Plain-text Decoding of Mode Reports

6.1.

TPC Info per Cell (Sony Ericsson)

While in soft handover, the phone is power controlled jointly by all members of the active set. Power control commands are received on the DPCCH. Certain Sony Ericsson phones deliver two mode reports that are relevant in this context, TPC Info and DPCCH DL. TPC Info shows the power control commands from each cell in the active set separately, whereas the DPCCH DL report gives the final power control decision obtained by combining and weighting the input from all active set members. The plain-text decoding of the TPC Info mode report represents the power control commands from each cell by a string of letters as follows: Q = Not valid: The cell was not part of the active set at this time. U = Up: The cell ordered the phone to raise the power. D = Down: The cell ordered the phone to lower the power. C = Skip: The phone was in compressed mode at this time, measuring on a different UARFCN or on GSM. N = No change: No power control command, power unchanged.

Since the power control frequency is 1500 Hz, each letter in the string represents 1/1500 of a second.

GSM/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA Events

Events in this category are generated by phones supporting at least one of the technologies GSM, WCDMA, and TD-SCDMA. The following is to be noted: For GAN-capable phones, call events in GAN mode are triggered in precisely the same manner as in GSM mode. This is achieved by unpacking Direct Transfer messages and extracting embedded GSM Layer 3 messages. For TD-SCDMA phones a subset of the listed events can be generated (in both TD-SCDMA and GSM mode). The extra information given in the table is rarely provided with events originating from TD-SCDMA phones.

The asterisk column uses the following codes: Code c e g g w ga sg sw w Meaning Requires that a cell file has been loaded. Generated in EDGE mode. Generated in GSM mode. Generated in GSM and WCDMA mode. Generated by GAN-capable phone interacting with a GANC. Generated during GSM scanning. Generated during WCDMA scanning. Generated in WCDMA mode.

Missing GSM Neighbor

sg (yellow bar on the right)

This is a GSM event based on scan data that includes decoded BSIC and System Information. The event does not require a cell file. It is assumed that the strongest cell with decoded BSIC is the serving cell. Among other cells with decoded BSIC, the six strongest ones are looked up in the strongest cells neighbor list (which is extracted from System Information messages). For each cell that is not in the neighbor list, an instance of this event is generated. The event is only generated once for each combination of assumed serving cell (ARFCN + BSIC) and missing neighbor (ARFCN). Extra information: BCCH ARFCN and BSIC of serving cell; ARFCN, BSIC, and signal strength (in dBm) of missing neighbor.
