BTS FILE FORMAT

1 GENERAL STRUCTURE

The first row of the file contains the keywords that define the order of the parameters in the following lines. 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 of parameters describing the cell as well as the site in which the cell resides. For both site and cell information, there are both mandatory parameters and optional parameters. Site and cell parameters are separated with semicolon or tabulator character.

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

BTS FILE FORMAT

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. After you have saved the as CSV, please check with Notepad (or with similar ASCII text editor) that your delimiter is either semicolon or tabulator. Also check that your coordinates have the period (.) character, for example 65.012345. Finally, change the file extension to .nbf.

Description

System

SYSTEM

String

AMPS, GSM, TDMA, CDMA, UMTS, TETRA, TD-SCDMA, WIMAX, EVDO or LTE.

Site Name

String

Name of the site.

Cell Name

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

and are used in many Geographic Information Systems (GIS), web mapping applications such as

Google Maps, 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. Positive

longitudes are east of Prime Meridian, negative longitudes are west of the Prime Meridian. Latitude

and 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.

3.9.3 Cell search method

Lines are drawn from the current location on a map to the serving cell and neighbor cells based on the following algorithm.

Base Station ID + Preamble index

Frequency + Preamble index

Note that if multiple matching cells are found, closest cell is selected. The cell is matched only if distance is less than 50 km (31 miles).
