Performance Analysis of 3G and 4G LTE Networks and the Need for Automatic Mobile Number Portability

Performance Analysis of 3G and 4G LTE Networks and the Need for Automatic Mobile Number Portability

ABSTRACT

Experimental work was carried out to establish the features of three out of four networks operators in Nigeria; MTN, GLO, and AIRTEL using TEM Navigation 16 equipment. The results of these comparisons were used to buttress the need for automatic mobile number portability (AMNP) and also establish the conditions that must be met for AMNP to take place. The experimental setup and data collection were achieved in extensive drive tests in both 3G and 4G LTE environments in the three networks within the Metropolitan City of Port Harcourt in Rivers State, Nigeria. Key performance Indicators evaluated were Stand-Alone Dedicated Channel (SDCCH), Call Setup Success Rate (CSSR), Call Drop Rate (CDR), Call Block Rate (CBR), and Handover Success Rate (HOSR) for the 3G networks, and Reference Signal Received Power (RSRP), Reference Signal Received Quality (RSRQ), and Throughput analysis for the LTE networks respectively. Data presentation showed how these KPIs varied, presenting the need for AMNP to ensure seamless interconnectivity between networks. The results showed that all the operators at one time or the other did not comply with the stipulated performance threshold values as recommended by the Nigerian Communications Commission for all the Network operators in Nigeria. This led to the articulation of some conditions upon which porting was predicated to ensure network availability no matter the location.
