Abstract

All Service Providers (SP) offering many services that needs to regularly measure the values of RSCP and Ec/Io. These two important Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) may assess their network performance and deliver Quality of Service (QoS) to meet both the end user perception and regulatory obligations. In this paper, a well-established real radio network performance evaluation is presented on the basis of Receive Signal Code Power (RSCP) and Signal-to-Interference Ratio (Ec/Io). The focus is to analyze live indoor network performance of the proposed network within the confines of Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) irrespective of discussions and modelling in the literature. The Tests was carried out by TEMS Investigation, one of the most powerful tools for measuring the mobile wireless network Performance. Results and Analysis section summarizes findings and improvement on the two KPIs.
