1      About this Document

         This guide is designed to specify radio network drive test for smooth
process and ensure the accuracy and consistency of the tested data.
         For instrument usage of specific products and drive test technologies,
please refer to corresponding instrument usage guide and drive test guide.


2 Intended Users

         This guide is drafted for radio network planning optimization engineers
and drive test engineers to carry out drive tests.




3 Specifications

3.1     Before a Drive Test

3.1.1 Determining Methods and Engineers


            Based on test objectives and requirements, determine the following:

             Drive test methods

             Engineers and cooperative engineers

             Test area

             instruments and devices.

            For comparison tests on the same network, should adopt the same
        test devices and methods to ensure the results consistent.

3.1.2 Checking Instruments


            To check the instruments, proceed as follows:

            1. The required instruments should be complete and normal.

      2005-01-10                    All rights reserved              Page two of six
Radio Network Drive Test Guide                      Internal open




         2. Accessories of drive test instruments should be complete and
     normal.

         3. Power supply devices and batteries should be well prepared for
     drive test.

         4. The software of drive test should be correctly installed and used.

         5. The engineers must normally connect the required instruments
     with relevant accessories and confirm that both drive test software and
     devices can work normally.




3.1.3 Collecting Network Information Data


         Drive test engineers must collect relevant information, such as data
     of the network to be tested (including engineering parameters and cell
     information) and maps, and then import them to drive test devices before
     a test.

3.1.4 Selecting Routes


         Select drive test routes based on test scope, objectives and


     requirements. For example , to ensure popularity of the drive test, avoid

     selecting repetitive routes for a city test. However, specific requirements
     from operators should be satisfied.

3.1.5 Vehicles and Time Arrangement


         Arranging appropriate vehicles and test time based on drive test
     requirements and objectives.

         For example, specific requirements of operators for time should be


   2005-01-10                    All rights reserved               Page two of six
Radio Network Drive Test Guide                        Internal open




        satisfied. To diagnose network problems, select the time period when
        call traffic is busy, such as 10:00am to 11:00am. Usually, saloon cars for
        passengers or automobiles are selected for drive test. Trunks/vans are
        not recommended but dedicated test vehicles are preferred. For
        coverage comparison tests, should use the same test vehicles and
        select consistent test time period.

3.2     During a Drive Test

3.2.1 Antenna Position of Test Terminals


            The external antenna should be installed on the roof above the
        assistant driver’s seat in the test vehicle.

            If there is a dedicated test workbench (or drive test box), the test
        terminal should be placed at the special purpose position on the test
        workbench. If there is no test workbench (or drive test box), the test
        terminal should be placed on the position almost satisfying the above
        requirements. Note that all tests should be carried out at the assistant
        driver’s seat in case of no test workbench.

            Engineers must record actual situations not in compliance with the
        above cases. Test terminals must not be placed randomly.

3.2.2 Vehicle Speed and Carriage Environment during a Test


            Drive a vehicle at a required speed.

            If an external antenna is installed, there is no requirement for the
        carriage; if not, it is recommended to close windows in the carriage.

3.2.3 Recording Test File Information


            During a drive test, record the test file name and the information
        related to actual test routes, and fill in drive test information table. Note
      2005-01-10                    All rights reserved                 Page two of six
Radio Network Drive Test Guide                       Internal open




        that this table and the drive test data should be saved into same
        directory.




3.3     After a Drive Test

            Based on test requirements and drive test guides for specific
        products, perform corresponding background processing on test data
        and output corresponding test result documents. Where, it is
        recommended to set legends based on the software default value.
