    1 GENERAL STRUCTURE

    The first row of the file contains the keywords that define the order of the parameters in the followinglines. Keywords are separated with semicolon or tabulator character.

    Other rows in the file contain the cell definitions. Each line describes one cell and contains a set ofparameters describing the cell as well as the site in which the cell resides. For both site and cellinformation, there are both mandatory parameters and optional parameters. Site and cell parametersare separated with semicolon or tabulator character.

    The file format supports three data types: integer, float and string. Integer type is defined as a numericvalue without dot character. Float type is defined as a numeric value with dot character. String type isdefined as a set of any printable ASCII characters except semicolon.

    2 CREATING BTS FILES

    BTS files can be created, for example, with MS Excel. Type in the cell parameters and save the file in

    CSV format. Finally, change the file extension to .nbf.

    3 PARAMETERS

    3.1 MANDATORY CELL PARAMETERS

    Parameter Keyword Type Descript ion

    System SYSTEM String AMPS, GSM, TDMA, CDMA, UMTS,

    TETRA, TD-SCDMA, WIMAX, EVDOor LTE.

    Site Name SITE String Name of the site.

    Cell Name CELL String Name of the cell.

    Latitude LAT Float Latitude of the site in degrees.

    Longitude LON Float Longitude of the site in degrees.

    Decimal degrees (DD) express latitude and longitude geographic coordinates as decimal fractions andare used in many Geographic Information Systems (GIS), web mapping applications such as GoogleMaps, and GPS devices. Decimal degrees are an alternative to using degrees, minutes, and seconds(DMS). As with latitude and longitude, the values are bounded by 90 and 180 each.

    Positive latitudes are north of the equator, negative latitudes are south of the equator. Positivelongitudes are east of Prime Meridian, negative longitudes are west of the Prime Meridian. Latitudeand longitude are usually expressed in that sequence, latitude before longitude.

    3.2 OPTIONAL CELL PARAMETERS

    Note that BSIC number format and separator parameters are defined per BTS file, not per

    cell. If these two parameters are included in the BTS file, they must be located at the

    beginning of the file on separate rows. See example below.

    Parameter Keyword Type Descript ion

    AntennaHeight

    HEIGHT Integer Values range from 0 to 1000

    Antenna Tilt TILT Float Values range from -90 to 90.

    AntennaBeam Width

    BEAM Integer Values range from 1 to 360

    BSIC NumberFormat

    BSIC_NUMBER_FORMAT Integer Base Station Identity Code Format. Validvalues are: "OCT", "DEC", and "HEX",Case is insensitive. If this keyword is notspecified, DEC is used by default

    Cell Range RANGE Integer Cell range in meters.

    Cell Type TYPE String NORMAL or REPEATER

    Neighbor CellName

    NCELL_n String Unique identifier of the neighbor n.

    Separator SEPARATOR String SEPARATOR can be specified by theSEPARATOR keyword. If this keyword isnot specified, either ; or TAB character is

    used by default and it is determined fromthe parameter header line

    User-definedcolumn name

    User-defined name String Text

    Example:

    BSIC_NUMBER_FORMAT OCT

    SEPARATOR ;
