The mp-Lab Solution Suite supports the planning of any LTE-FDD or LTE-TDD network. You can model your actual network environment by importing geographic data, assigning propagation models, and creating base stations based on the imported geographic data.
Then, you can plan the parameters such as the neighboring cells, and EARFCNs of the network, predict the network coverage range and evaluate the network capacity to meet your network planning requirements.
RSRP is used to measure the coverage of the LTE cell on the downlink of the transmission channel. The UE will send RRC measurements reports that include RSRP values in a binned format. The reporting range of RSRP is defined from −120 dBm to −40 dBm with 1 dB resolution. The main purpose of RSRP is to determine the best cell on the DL interface named Best Server and select this cell as the serving cell for either initial random access or intra-LTE handover.
Reference Signal Received Quality (RSRQ) is defined as the ratio N×RSRP/(EUTRA carrier RSSI), where N is the number of RB’s of the EUTRA carrier RSSI measurement bandwidth. The measurements in the numerator and denominator shall be made over the same set of resource blocks.
The Required SINR is the main performance indicator for LTE and the accurate knowledge required SINR is central to the authenticity of the throughput and thus the process of dimensioning. Required SINR depends upon the following factors:
In LTE the SNIR PDSCH required replaces the Eb/N0 required of the UMTS Rel.99. The required SINR can be estimated by two different methods:
Per definition Peak throughput represents a theoretical upper bound on what can be achieved on the channel in terms of throughput or capacity. It is an ideal case since it assumes no frame erasures and should not be thought of as a sustainable throughput.The peak throughput depend on:

With mp-Lab Solution Suite, different network systems correspond to different project templates. Based on your license modules and your appropriate project template, mp-Lab workspace is set-up. If multiple network systems are involved, The end user of our solution is in need to select the required templates. For example, If you need to create a project for a GSM/UMTS hybrid network, you have to create project based on templates for both the GSM and the UMTS networks.
mp-Lab Solution Suite supports mixed configurations with varied network technologies, multi-sectoral and multi-carrier modelisation can be defined for any station defined in the draft. The solution is:
mp-Lab Solution Suite – LTE module is an integrated solution for the most select planning, design and optimization of 3rd Generation radio network access. It enables:
