LTE RAN Utilization : How to measure?

Dear LTE experts,

Trying to evaluate my network RAN capacity and how well it’s utilized, I wonder what will be the best practice to trigger a LTE capacity extension ?

To some point, a higher LTE PRB load does not always mean a capacity outage since few number of UE may cause PRB Overload and it is directly related to Traffic type and user behavior.

From your experience, what will be the best combination to trigger LTE capacity extension (PRB, UE, OSS Throughput …)?

RRC users and payload could be good indicator.

In nokia you can get precise capacity based on overload indicators - refer LTE056.
