    What are the causes of Idle Band Interference (in Alcatel)?

    and how we can combat?

    Apreciate if any one help me with these.

    it’s either interference or hardware problems (too much EM noise generated by BTS, combiner, TRX or antenna, perhaps connectors)

    check values per TRX

    if you write the values here, i can explain and help you more.

    Find the value per TRX

    Sector A:
    Seized TCH Total=447
    # of interfered call DL=32
    interfered call DL rate=7.6
    Seized TCH Total=6149
    # of interfered call DL=581
    interfered call DL rate=9.45
    Seized TCH Total=6
    # of interfered call DL=1
    interfered call DL rate=16.76
    Seized TCH Total=3437
    # of interfered call DL=314
    interfered call DL rate=9.14

    Sector B:
    Seized TCH Total=4690
    # of interfered call DL=198
    interfered call DL rate=4.22
    Seized TCH Total=223
    # of interfered call DL=42
    interfered call DL rate=18.83
    Seized TCH Total=2444
    # of interfered call DL=397
    interfered call DL rate=16.24

    Sector C:
    Seized TCH Total=610
    # of interfered call DL=82
    interfered call DL rate=13.44
    Seized TCH Total=0
    # of interfered call DL=0
    interfered call DL rate=0
    Seized TCH Total=0
    # of interfered call DL=0
    interfered call DL rate=0

    you gave me the amount of “Noisy Calls”, it’s an RMS indicator. Aren’t there the interference bands measurements per TRX ?

    Maybe I’m wrong, those indicators are not available per TRX. I can check tomorrow.

    The indicators you gave are not obvious indicators, they shall be interpreted in regards with other indicators. I call such indicators “secondary”, in the sense that they don’t allow you to assess the quality of the cell. They can simply confirm a prior analysis.

    At first glance, maybe the sector B is interfered.

    As you mentioned, there is no idle band interference indicator per TRXs in the RNO.

    I notice that the idle band interference is always accompanied with a high rate of noisy calls; so I thought you may ask about noisy call indicators.

    So, anyway, the idle band interference shows the level of the noise on the frequencies of the cell.
    idle band 1 means that the noise is between x dBm and x dBm
    idle band 2, btw x dBm and x dBm, etc

    check the properties of the counters to know what are the values of “x”.

    If most of the noise is between -47dBm and -70dBm for example, it means there are a lot of interference
    If the noise is mostly between -100 and -110dBm, then it means there is no interference (noise is very weeak).

    These measurements are done in uplink only, it reflects the uplink noise (heard by the BTS)

    Please,how can I solve the problem of idle band interference on Alcatel BTS
