Sanjole tests LTE network in Czech Republic

Sanjole tests LTE network in Czech Republic

In early January representatives from Sanjole visited Prague to test and troubleshoot throughput issues in the newly installed LTE network of a Mobile Network Operator.  Sanjole’s WaveJudge/IntelliJudge was first used in the Lab, under ideal conditions, to determine the maximum throughput and performance of a cabled/conducted LTE network, and then was used in the field to determine the reason for poor throughput and performance of the “Over The Air” LTE production network.

It was determined that the eNB was not scheduling all possible Resource Blocks to be used for user data, therefore reducing the maximum possible throughput.  Also, interference with a neighbor sector was measured, which also reduces the performance of the LTE network.

It is interesting to note that typical “Drive Tests” were done prior to the arrival of Sanjole, but it was not possible to find any of these issues during the Drive Tests.
