    2 New Features and Devices

    2.1 New Features

    2.1.1 Manual MOS Test

    The Voice Quality and Benchmarking Device is used for Manual MOS test, where PESQ and

    POLQA algorithms are supported. In a voice quality test, users may manually call a terminal, and

    Pilot Pioneer may initiate the PESQ or POLQA MOS test to obtain the relevant MOS score. This

    function is provided for traditional Circuit Switched (CS) voice call tests and other Internet

    Protocol (IP) based call tests such as VoLTE.

    Figure 2.1 Manual MOS test

    Note: DingLis "MOS Box" has been redesigned and will be known as Voice Quality and

    Benchmarking Device from this version onwards.

    2.1.2 VSNR Algorithm for Manual MOS Test

    The Video Stream Non-Reference (VSNR) algorithm is added in this version. This is a non-

    reference based algorithm for video streaming quality measurement. This function is only for

    Manual MOS tests.

    Figure 2.2 VSNR algorithm

    2.1.3 Force Functions for WCDMA and LTE on

    Qualcomm Chipset Based Terminals

    The force function is improved in this version. Cell lock in WCDMA, and frequency and cell lock

    in LTE can be supported with Samsung Note3 N9008s and G5306.

    2.1.4 Data Partition for .ddib Format

    The data in the .ddib format can be partitioned in this version.The .ddib format is one of the

    supported data formats in Pilot Pioneer.

    Figure 2.3 Supported data formats (.ddib)

    2.1.5 Report Task Monitor

    The Report Task Monitor function is added to check the progress and completion of each statistics

    report task.

    Figure 2.4 Report Task Monitor

    2.1.6 Grey Background in the Map Window

    In the Map window, users have the option to render the background in grey to highlight the test.

    2.1.7 TCP/IP Sniffer for PBM Service Test

    TCP/IP sniffer is supported during PBM service test, to facilitate data analysis.

    There are three kinds of TCP/IP modes:

    All: to sniff the entire data.

    Headers only: to sniff only the frame header and the last ten bytes all services.

    Optimized: to sniff the entire protocol packet and the first data packet for FTP and PBM

    service tests.

    2.1.8 Parameter Categorization Based on QCI

    Parameters are categorized based on QoS Class Identifier (QCI), which help users to check KPIs

    based on different services.

    2.1.9 Project Wizard

    Users may enable the Project Wizard function for easy configuration (e.g. collection protocol,

    display mode) based on test scenarios when they need to create a new project. This Project Wizard

    may directly open a saved project.
