PC requirements: hardware and softwareRecommended HW: Intel Dual Core with 1 GB RAM or more. OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and also on Windows 2003 server or Windows 2008 server. It is recommended to have Internet Explorer 6.0 or greater (will not be used directly) in order to benefit from Microsoft XML v6.0. Agileto it is an Windows application working in conjunction with other three Windows applications: MS Excel application (Excell 2000 or greater), MapInfo application (ver. 8 or greater) Google Earth (ver 5 or greater) Important: In order to benefit of all its modules available there is a pre-request that MS Excel, MapInfo and Google Earth applications should be already pre-installed. Notice: If an error message is reported at first launching of the tool it may by due to the fact that Microsoft XML, v6.0 is not already pre-installed (normally this is coming with the package of Internet Explorer 6.0). To fix this error, you need to proceed as following (see additionally the below picture): 1. Get the file msxml6.dll and store it at following path: C:\Windows\System32\msxml6.dll 2. Open a new (workbook) Excel file then go to the main menu: Tools\Macro\Visual Basic Editor 3. Go to the Visual Basic Editor main menu: Tools\References and check like into the below picture;

If necessary (Microsoft XML, v6.0 is missing) then use Browse button to add it by pointing to the file msxml6.dll mentioned at point 1 above. Pres OK button and try launching the tool again.

Agileto - Detailed User Guide V1.28.doc

Before you startYou have to check that MS Office Excel, MapInfo and Google Earth applications are already pre-installed on your PC (MapInfo and Google Earth are not mandatory but they are recommended in order to benefit of all Agiletos modules). Also, you should have available (as inputs for different modules) the following files: 3G network configuration as a file format *.xml, *.xcm or *.txt file. Usually this is a snapshot exported from OMC and OMC Engineer has access to this information. Each 3G vendor currently on the market (Alcatel-Lucent/ NokiaSiemens/ Huawei/ Ericsson/ etc is capable to export its 3G network configuration data into file formats like: *.xml, *.xcm or *.txt. For this Detailed User Guide this file will be named - File #1. Excel (external) file with the following information (usually exported from any Planning Tool or mobile operator database). The type of the information necessary to be provided into these external Excel files is mentioned below for each type of the networks (3G & 2G). This information contains mainly the geographically positions/coordinates and orientations/azimuths related to the 3G & 2G networks and it is immediately required in order to be able to map the networks into MapInfo/Google Earth tools. Mandatory fields are presented below into green background (yellow are optionally but recommended). For this Detailed User Guide this file will be named - File #2. For 3G network o LocallCell_ID o Long_WGS84 o Lat_WGS84 o Azimuth o Sector ID (recommended) o Cell_Name (recommended) For 2G network o Cell_ID o Long_WGS84 o Lat_WGS84 o Azimuth o Sector ID (recommended) o Cell_Name (reccommended)

The common key references used for the data association between any external Excel file and Agileto reference database (3G & 2G) are: 3G -> LocalCell_ID 2G -> Cell_ID Also, some other additionally (optional) information, if they are available will help you when working with different modules. The additionally information is used to update Agileto reference database (3G & 2G). For more information about the (optional) additionally information which may be usefully please see the description of the module M1.1 as well as the Annex describing Agileto reference database [3G&2G_Config.xls].Page 4 of 104 www.agileto.com

Some of the Agiletos software modules would require you to have available some other additionally information / files as they are presented below. Call Traces in *.xml format. The purpose of getting these kinds of files is for the automatic neighbors optimization method (M4.2) based on the Call Traces. The Call Traces files may be collected as usually by the OMC engineer after a command of launching the record of these file (Call Traces) has been issued in advance for a period of time. In order to have the best Neighboring optimization approach, the time recommended for the collection of the Call Traces (on all the 3G cells belonging to a dedicated geographically region/area [cluster of ~ 20 NodeBs, or one / more RNCs] is 1 week (minimum 1 day). The time requested for the Call Traces collection is recommended to be 1 week in order to ensure that the geographically traffic distribution of the mobile users is collected representative from the statistically point of view (as the traffic profile may change considerable from one day to another day along to one week). For more information please seeas well the description of the module M4.2. For this Detailed User Guide this file will be named - File #3. Drive Test file (*.csv). The purpose of getting this file is for the neighbors optimization method (M4.1) based on the Drive Tests measurements data collection
