Work Experience:

● Microwave:

I achieved a Certification from the Telecommunications Federal Agency for a Software tool

(EMILINK) for point to point microwave links interference analysis that has been used by a Coordinator Company in all Mexico (SCINTELSA) approved by IFT since 2002. This tool allows you to calculate interference signal levels and availability to know if a new point to point microwave link is allowed to be installed or needs to be re-configured for a better compatibility. More than 30,000 non interference certificates have been delivered to our carrier customers (ATT, America Movil, Alestra – Axtel, Telmex, Maxcom, etc). I achieved the design and deployment of microwave links using EMILINK and Pathloss for all carriers.

I have achieved Laboratory tests over several microwave brands in order to certificate main parameters of operation: bandwidths, power, emission masks, receiver thresholds, capacity, etc. that was used by Telefonica to buy microwave radios. Deployment of microwave radios in several frequency bands: 2.4 GHz, 7 GHz, 15 GHz, 23 GHz and 38 GHz for different configurations: indoor – outdoor and all indoor for main carriers.

I achieved the Certification of microwave equipment with telecommunication labs.

● RF:

Optimization and design of cellular networks using Atoll planning tools. Troubleshooting of GSM, CDMA, UMTS and LTE sites in 700 MHz, 800 MHz, AWS, 1900 MHz, 2500 MHz. Optimization for multiband with ALCATEL, Ericsson and Samsung. Use of traffic and propagation models to predict coverage and performance. Troubleshoot of cellular networks (Sprint, MetroPCS, Red Compartida)


Tier 2 Support Engineer

Ago 2017 – current work

Curriculum Vitae (CV)

● Improved and optimized performance of Red Compartida Cellular Network as 2nd level support for LTE. Experience with Nokia and Huawei Microwave and BTS 4G equipment: Cloud and S/D RAN configurations. Backbone and backhaul troubleshooting using fiber optics and microwave. Analisys of Performance KPIs. ERICSSON, MÉXICO

Telecommunications Support Engineer

May 2012 – Feb 2016

● Improved and optimized performance of Sprint Cellular Network as 1st and 2nd level support.

● Troubleshooting for RAN LTE and CDMA (Sprint). LTE eNB integration for Sprint.

● 1st level support for a Cellular Network in the United States (MetroPCS) from Mexico

(NOC). CDMA, EVDO and LTE Technologies including environmental alarms, backhaul and routers.

● 1st level support for a Cellular Network in the United States (Cricket) from Mexico

(NOC). The cellular Network has CDMA and EVDO Technologies. I used tools for monitoring and for open tickets as Netcool. I needed to test alarms with the Switch Engineers in order to set up the proper behavior and advise of each alarm.

● I developed with team-mates a new format for the physical and logical integration of UMTS nodes via microwaves for Movistar Mexico. I also participated in the Proposal for Nextel – Televisa for the 3G auction for Mexico and Brazil in the area of microwave transmission.

● Trainer for new members of the team.


Telecommunications Support Engineer

Oct 2010 - April 2012

● Achieved Certification of ZTE MicroWave Radio with Telcel in the licensed frequency bands (7, 15, 23 and 38 GHz).

● Achieved the best score from Telcel LTE trial Project for the deployment, debugging and trouble shooting of eNBs and CN (MME and O&AM). Also I gave support to the Mediation Project that consists in a system in between Network Elements with information of calls (voice and data) and the BSS/OSS. I also worked with Telcel to calculate Satellite Traffic for remote BTS using the SMART System. After I got the traffic in Erlangs for voice I needed to convert it to kbps and add the result to the data traffic.This result was compared to the reported traffic of the Satellite service provider with very good results.

● Trainer for new members of the team.



Jan 2010 - Sept 2010

● We developed a format for the physical and logical integration of UMTS nodes via Microwaves point to point links for Movistar Mexico. I also participated in the Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Proposal for Nextel & Televisa for the 3G auction for Mexico and Brazil in the area of Microwave transmission


Telecommunications Support Engineer

Feb 2007 – Dec 2009

● I gave support to the WiMAX project doing drive tests and spectrum sweeps for the ALU WiMAX equipment and all the tests for different customers. Achieved carrier Certification for the BSSB ZTE CDMA equipment in 450 MHz, including CBTS I2, BTS O1 and Micro BTS for Telmex. These tests consisted in performing lab measurements and show to Telmex Engineers the results according to some protocols to verify the match between the telecommunication equipment and Telmex Network fulfilling all of the customers’ specifications. This required coordination with ZTE partner, ALU ́s people, providers and Telmex.

● Trainer for new members of the team.

“Services and Consultancy in Engineering of Telecommunications” June 2002 – Up to Now.

● Achieved the initiation of a new brand Telecommunication Company. Responsible for the operation, accounting and new business development. Maintain bond with CONACYT (Federal Support Agency for Science and Research Studies) and the main Academic Institutions and of Investigation of the Country.

● Achieved a Co-authored computational tool used for the analyses of interference for point to point microwave links which is copy righted and allowed by Cofetel to submit CNIs (Non Interference Certificates) for the Microwave point to point bands (7, 15, 23 and 38 GHz). Planning and Design of Microwave Networks for Cellular and Carrier companies in Mexico (ALESTRA, AXTEL, TELMEX IUSACELL, NEXTEL, TELCEL MAXCOM, MEGACABLE, BESTEL, UNEFON, ETC)

● Achieved the design and planning of microwave networks with more that 20,000 links working in all Mexico. I designed an own tool called Emilink for interference analysis and desing of microwave links incluiding receive signal levels, interference levels and bucking. Experienced also with Pathloss 4 and 5; I have trained people with microwave tools.

● Trainer for several companies regarding desing, planning and interference troubleshooting for microwave links: Pathloss IV and V and Emilink software (3 days attending training with real links); telecommunications systems for BTS installation. ITESM, CCM
