Parameters Used by ACP
Automatic optimisation tool for GSM, UMTS, CDMA networks
To improve existing networks by tuning parameters that can be easily changed remotely
Antenna electrical tilt
Power (BCCH for GSM, Pilot for UMTS)

To optimise a network still in the planning phase by


Selecting antennas
Changing the antenna azimuth
Changing the mechanical down tilt of the antenna
Changing the antenna height
Selecting sites among a list of candidate sites

Combined GSM/UMTS/LTE optimisation can be performed


Parameters Used by ACP
Principle
Optimisation of quality indicators (GSM BCCH Coverage & Dominance of best
server UMTS RSCP & CPICH Ec/Io)
By automatic adjustments of network parameters
Power (BCCH for GSM)
Antenna parameters:
Type of antenna
Azimuth
Mechanical down tilt
Electrical down tilt
Height
Focus zone
= Area where the optimisation will
Parameters used by ACP be performed (by default)

Recommendations
Creating a Computation Zone:
Used to define the default
area where
the ACP calculates statistics
on
performance indicators

Creating a Focus Zone:


Used to define the default
area in which
are the cells to be optimised

Computation zone
= Zone used to compute statistics
on
performance indicators (by default)
CreatinganOptimisationSetup

To save the defined


optimisation
parameters and run the
optimisation later
Selection of layers to be optimised Layer(s) configuration
Several in case of Multi-RAT
networks (GSM+UMTS)
There for
Erbil we
just used
for GSM
Selection of zones to be optimised
Zones definition/
Possibility to define
zones to be
specifically
optimized,
Choice between quality or financial cost
based optimisation
No cost control: the
optimisation is only
based on quality
Useful when planning a
new network

Possibility to limit the


financial cost of the
optimisation:
Maximum financial
cost allowed
Compromise between
the financial cost
and the quality
Useful when
improving an existing
network
Selection of transmitters/cells to be optimised
To define
Cells
Optimisation
parameters
(Subcells
power in
GSM, Pilot
power in
UMTS)

To define cells, Transmitter , sites, location of site , parameter of the recommended


site Physical parameters, bands, )
Load balancing (Optional)

Traffic can be
considered as
uniform
(evenly spread
on each
service area)
or,
Define the
generated from
threshold of
traffic

The optimisation
process can be
paused or
stopped early
