2.9 Nemo support

[Case 61924] LTE timing advance is now set in a new attribute called LTE_UE_Timing_Advance. In LTE, the following attributes are now set at the CELLMEAS message: LTE_UE_RSRP_For_PCI LTE_UE_RSRQ_For_PCI [Case 63405] in WiMAX, a problem has been resolved with the decoding of the Preamble Index information element. [Case 61380] A licensing problem has been resolved that could cause GSM scanner attributes to be missing. [Case 62192] In UMTS, a problem has been resolved that affected the indexing of the monitored set array attributes (such as Uu_MonitoredSet_SC,) when the UE was monitoring more than one frequency.

Actix Analyzer Update

December 2011

[Case 62637] In LTE, support was added for more LTE frequency bands for R&S scanners. [Case 62871] A problem has been resolved that could cause Sagem streams to be missing in Analyzer. [Case 62975] A problem has been resolved that prevented log files containing a new device type UMTS-PN-Scan from loading. [Case 62583] A problem has been resolved with new GPS message types that prevented some log files from loading.

2.14 SwissQual Diversity support

[Case 62622] A problem has been resolved that affected the indexing of UMTS monitored set array attributes (such as Uu_MonitoredSet_CS) in SwissQual version 11.0.

The event detection stops and no call event is pegged when the end of side A or side B log file is reached.

[Case 63013] Two new throughput attributes are now set from Swissqual internal messages: SwissQualThroughput_DL SwissQualThroughput_UL The value of these new attributes is very close to the standard attributes App_Throughput_DL_Mean and App_Throughput_UL_Mean. The purpose of the new attributes is to give the ability to match exactly NQDI report values.

2.15 Generic

Added support for LTE X2AP protocol. [Case 62231] Attribute LTE_UE_CINR now has a new format group, which improves the visualization on maps and charts.
