What to monitor in 5G eMBB services?

5G Enables different usage scenarios, among which we have:

  • eMBB (Enhanced Mobile BroadBand)
  • mMTC (massive Machine Type Communications)
  • URLLC (Ultra Reliable and Low Latency Communications).

Within eMBB, the first use case that is being deployed with 5G is the FWA (Fixed Wireless Access).

In the attached graph it shows the monitoring of the FWA service, from where we can see:

  • DL️/UL Throughput per user (average and maximum)
  • DL️/UL Throughput average by area (reported by all users)
  • ENDC Signaling (for troubleshooting the 5G NSA)
  • Throughput correlation with RF levels (RSRP, RSRQ, SINR, modulation, etc.)
  • Session duration time (in this example we see that the user has been connected for 14 continuous hours, downloading the 50Mbps average. This can be used to review fair use policies in the red)
  • Automatic correlation with type of mobility (stationary or in motion), type of device, frequency used, among others.

And now the question:

Besides FWA, what else should be monitored in 5G eMBB?
