The UMTS appear to be the communication system of the next future. In this system all the communication services will be included. This means that the Quality of Service (QoS) will have a great importance. So is envisaged that the management of the system will take in account the momentary system capabilities continually determined in real time. Until now, the quality of the links is determined by end-to-end in line procedures based on Bit Error Rate (BER) measurements. It is clear that an end-to-end procedure cannot detect the worse section of the link. To overcome this inconvenient the more recent trend of QoS management is to realise a distributed monitoring of the whole system. Following this last trend this paper proposes a distributed off-line monitoring of the system based on the analysis of the Quality of Analog Signal (QoAS). This proposed analysis implies a high-speed analog to digital conversion of the Intermediate Frequency signal and a very complex processing. In this paper, the state-of-the-art researches performed in this perspective are described.
