  2. 2. Agenda Main principles of phase 1 UMTS From GSM to GSM/UMTS Technical process for the roll out of the Orange France UMTS network Services provided by the Orange France UMTS network Next steps OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 2
  3. 3. Main principles of phase 1 UMTS From GSM to GSM/UMTS OrangeFrance -20th of Septembrer 2005, - 3
  4. 4. UMTS Phase 1 General points UMTS phase 1 : The Core Network is an evolution of the GSM/GPRS Core Network : a MSC is used for the circuit services; SGSN and GGSN are used for the packet services The radio system is entirely new; it includes two modes > WCDMA, Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) for the paired spectrum > TD-CDMA, Time Division Duplex (TDD) for the unpaired spectrum MAP is common to GSM and UMTS, this allows the GSM/UMTS roaming 3GPP defined one standard common to UMTS phase 1 Core Network and to GSM Release 99 Core Network As a consequence the advantages of GSM (services, SIM card, interfaces …) have been kept for UMTS OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 4
  5. 5. UMTS Radio Access 1/2 New throughputs at the radio interface : 8 kb/s, 64 kb/s, 128 kb/s, 384 kb/s WCDMA uses the following radio resources: 1920-1980 MHz and 2110-2170 MHz. 15 Mhz duplex (three carriers) are used by Orange France for WCDMA UMTS provides new radio resources allowing to accommodate higher traffic demands OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 5
  6. 6. UMTS Radio Access 2/2 1900 1920 1980 2010 2025 2110 2170 TDD TDD FDD UL FDD DL UL/DL UL/DL FUL FUL/DL FDL Mode FDD Mode TDD W-CDMA, FDD mode (Frequency Domain Duplex) in the paired bands (2x60 MHz) TD-CDMA TDD mode (Time Domain Duplex) in the unpaired bands (35MHz) OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 6
  7. 7. The Architecture of UMTS Phase 1 VM Application UMTS Server BS Iub UMTS MSC API BTS Iu Camel IN platform UMTS UMTS UMTS BS RNC Terminal ISUP GSM Abis RNIS BTS UMTS SGSN A GSM/GPRS BTS GSM HLR GSM BSC ISUP Terminal Gb BTS Map Gn A GSM MSC Gi Internet Abis GSM GSM BTS Gn BSC Intranet BTS GSM GSM SGSN GGSN GSM BTS Terminal The architecture of a R99 UMTS network is similar to the one of a GSM network. In a first phase the two Core Network are separated. Then we will migrate towards an architecture where the Core Network is common to GSM and UMTS radio accesses. Most of our 7 OrangeFrance – 24th of November - value added services are already common to GSM and UMTS
  8. 8. Four facts about UMTS Core Network common to GSM and UMTS The radio system is completely new, therefore new equipments shall be rolled out UMTS provides a continuous coverage, this is a cellular coverage comparable to a GSM coverage UMTS allows new radio resources for the operators OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 8
  9. 9. From GSM to GSM/UMTS The efficient path to 3G For the GSM operators UMTS allows a smooth migration from 2G to 2G and 3G Dual mode mobile stations Core Network common to GSM and UMTS Reuse of 2G services As MAP is common to GSM and UMTS, the success of GSM roaming can be kept and extended UMTS subscribers will benefit from the GSM foot print + Japan + Korea OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 9
  10. 10. Technical process for the roll out of the Orange France UMTS network OrangeFrance -20th of Septembrer 2005, - 10
  11. 11. Some characteristics of the Orange France Radio deployment When UMTS service is offered in a city, the UMTS radio coverage is provided as well in the surroundings of this city meaning that suburban areas and rural areas around this city are covered as well The definition of this marketing areas relies on the experience that we deduce from the behaviour of our GSM subscribers. Most of the existing GSM sites should be reused, they should be turned in GSM/UMTS sites (GSM/UMTS cositing) When the existing GSM grid is not sufficient to provide the throughputs necessary in a given area, some pure UMTS sites are added. As we use GSM/UMTS cositing we had to verify that the two radio systems can coexist In order to guarantee that, we performed tests in September 2001 on three sites of our UMTS trial network which were as well sites of our GSM commercial network. Both the analysis of the counters and the different measurements showed that the UMTS equipment do not cause any quality degradation on the service provided by the collocated GSM equipment. OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 11
  12. 12. General process deduced from our studies, our technical tests and services trials The different IOT shall be ensured on the network side > With our different trials we ensured the interworking between Alcatel UTRAN and Ericsson CN, between Nokia UTRAN and Ericsson CN, between Nortel UTRAN and Ericsson CN > We ensured the 3G/2G handovers between radio infrastructures from different manufacturers, after that it is necessary to optimise the compressed mode parameters and between the network and the terminals > We use the GCF certification. In addition we perform some complementary tests After the network is rolled out in a given area, the following steps shall be performed : Radio optimisation Test of the radio optimisation Test of the end to end Quality of Service OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 12
  13. 13. Soft Handover On the cell border an MS establishes more than one radio link, this improves coverage and capacity Same carrier BS1 BS2 OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 13
  14. 14. Coverage and capacity The coverage may reduce when the traffic increases « Cell Breathing » Power Control Transmitted power shall vary in order to reach the desired radio quality It shall be minimum in order to minimise the global interference Load control OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 14
  15. 15. Main steps of the Radio optimisation process First step of the radio optimisation : antenna tuning Antenna tilts, antenna azimuths … Further steps : parameters tuning Power transmitted by the common channels, handover algorithms Then an audit of the radio optimisation shall be performed Measurements are performed in both loaded and unloaded conditions Measurements are performed in outdoor conditions and in indoor conditions OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 15
  16. 16. The QoS Indicators Orange based their contractual KPIs on measurements which describe the customer perception Circuit switched domain Success rate of voice calls connections Success rate of visiophony calls connections Success rate of voice calls maintained during X minute(s) Success rate of visiophony calls maintained during X minute(s) Success rate of voice calls presenting a correct voice quality Voice calls connections times Visiophony calls connections times All the performance are measured in MO, MTC and MTM cases Packet switched domain Success rate of internet connections Internet connections times Downloading times of an HTML pages E-mail transmission times E-mail reception times Throughputs measurements; the purpose of these indicators is to ensure that the actual throughputs are close to theoretical values (e.g. 64UL/128DL, 64UL/384DL, 128UL/384 DL …) OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 16

Feature and services in the Orange France Network GSM and GPRS services have been implemented in the Orange France UMTS network Speech, SMS, Voice Mail, supplementary services, CAMEL features, SIM toolkit, MMS, WAP services, WEB browsing, data transfer. Some of these services will be improved by the use of the high throughputs provided by UMTS In addition we provide innovative services Video telephony Live TV Audio/video streaming Download of multimedia content (including video) Infotainment (WAP pull; MMS push) Off-line games, on line games Video messaging via MMS Live sport Event Video responder Presence OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 18 Email
  19. 19. GSM/GPRS + 3G + EDGE coverage OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 19
  20. 20. Continuity of service GSM/UMTS dual mode features (selection/reselection and handover) are implemented in both the infrastructures and the terminals. Services fallbacks are implemented in order that the UMTS subscribers can benefit from the GSM coverage For speech the GSM/UMTS handover ensures the continuity of service in both directions with terminals compliant to Release 99 Packet on DCH, from UMTS to EDGE/GPRS The service may continue on EDGE/GPRS but the throughput will evidently be lower In R99, as specified in TS24.008, fallback from digital (UDI) H.324 call to speech (video call) is not supported A H.324-M (UDI/RDI multimedia) video call between two mobiles cannot continue on GSM. This fallback may be possible with release R5 OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 20
  21. 21. Roaming When using a GSM/UMTS terminal, the UMTS subscribers of OrangeFrance are offered a world coverage They benefit from the present GSM roaming agreements concluded between OrangeFrance and the GSM operators This is possible because the MAP protocol is common to GSM and UMTS Roaming agreements have been concluded with other UMTS networks OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 21

  30. 30. HSDPA Main characteristics of HSDPA Better radio resource efficiency on the downlink High peak rate per carrier, up to 14 Mbps theoretically Flexible sharing of resources between the MSs Smooth Introduction in the Network No impact on the HW (except impact due to traffic increase) HSDPA on a dedicated carrier for already highly loaded cells for best user experience… possibly on a mixed carrier otherwise Require the right set of feature for Iub transmission • High speed Downlink Packet Access, then … High Speed Uplink Packet Access will come soon Combination of HSDPA and HSUPA OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 30
  31. 31. Spectrum to improve coverage UMTS/IMT-2000 remains to be introduced in many markets including the largest developing countries In these markets, the introduction will be facilitated by the availability of the appropriate frequency spectrum in the lower bands RRC-06 and WRC-07 offer a unique opportunity to harmonise spectrum in the 500 MHz range for mobile service The transition from analogue to digital broadcasting is expected to set free some spectrum, so called ‘digital dividend’ This ‘digital dividend’ or parts of it could be allocated to Mobile Service and identified for IMT-2000 by WRC-07 e.g. 470 – 600 MHz Mobile communication could contribute to the development of lower population density areas provided that they benefit from an enabling regulatory environment and globally harmonised spectrum within 470-600 MHz band OrangeFrance – 24th of November - 31
