The Testing of Integration
Post-Installation Network Testing
· Return Loss
· Distance to Fault
· Open and Short Attenuation measurements· Passive Intermodulation
· Active Intermodulation
Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR)
A.K.A. Fiber Testing (1550nm)
· An OTDR may be used for estimating the fiber length and overall attenuation, including splice and mated-connector losses.
· It may also be used to locate faults, such as breaks, and to measure optical return loss.
Passive Intermodulation (PIM):
· Band by band test your UL/DL for the effects of PIM. Carriers require PIM testing to certify that the bands and channels transported in passive infrastructure aren't creating harmful intermodulation products that would adversely affect the transmission of other bands and channels.
· L2 & end to end throughput
· Latency and round trip time
· Protocol, Handshake, and secure gateway
· Ipsec and overhead
LBS & E911 Call Testing:
· Angle of arrival (AOA) & Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) Triangulation
· Public Safety Access Point (PSAP) Verification (Latitude, Longitude accuracy within 10 meters)
Key Performance Indicator (KPI) testing:
· Data Session Accessibility (RRC Accessibility)
· Data Session Retainability (RRC Retainability)
· Throughput (RLC, Application Layers; downlink,and uplink)
· Individual Session Mean, Cell Aggregate, and % Area >=x Mbps
· Data Session Setup Time (e.g., RRC Setup Time)
· Ping Delay and Round Trip Time
· Latency (RAN, Core, end to end)
· Intra-LTE Handover (HO) Success Rate (X2-based, Inter-MME, and IFHO)
· Intra-LTE HO Delay (X2-based, Inter-MME, and IFHO)
· Inter-Radio Access Technology (IRAT) HO Success Rate
· IRAT HO Delay
· % of Time on LTE (Core Area, and Border Area)
CSFB (MO,MT, with or without ongoing PS session)
· CSFB Success Rate
· CSFB Delay
· SMS over SGs Success Rate & Delivery Delay (if relevant)
· RSSI, RSRP, RSCP, etc.
· Uplink tests
· Downlink Tests
· Channel Power
· Fade Margin & Link Budget Analysis
· Call Processing
· C/I, SNR, Ec/Io, SINR, ect.
· MCS & EVM
· Bit/Block Error Rate
