Before the start of the SAT, the Rohill Partner draws up the SAT protocol. The SAT protocol is a project-specific document tuned to the end-user’s configuration and needs. The protocol describes all relevant checks and tests and is reviewed by Rohill.

The TetraNode system and all other equipment, such as the terminal equipment, antenna installations and infrastructure equipment must be fully installed, configured and commissioned before the start of the SAT.

If the above conditions are met, the actual SAT can start. Functional tests form the greater part of the SAT protocol. In order to minimize the risk of differences between equipment behaviour during the tests and equipment behaviour in the actual end-user situation, it is important that the system and peripheral equipment is loaded with the end-user’s configuration.

If agreed upfront and provided that the required tools are available, a coverage test can be included in the SAT. The coverage test serves to answer the following questions:

  • Can the system, as installed, provide the coverage as predicted?
  • Are there locations where the coverage doesn’t fulfil the needs of the customer?
  • Have the cell reselect parameters been configured properly?

The SAT is concluded with the signing of the SAT statement by the Rohill Partner and the end user. The Rohill Support engineer can sign the SAT statement as a witness.
