NETKOM, Karachi, Pakistan 2013 – 2014
Drove successful completion of the Huawei Project UFONE (PTML) Swap and BSC Up-gradation. Performed BSC and cluster drive, reported quality issues and interferences, reported various issues, and led pre- and post-drive for SWAP batches. Maintained complete responsibility for the BSC drive, static testing, TRX testing, swap testing, packet service, call service, and intra-cell and inter-site handover testing.
Quickly and effectively resolved customer complaints regarding poor signal strength, bad quality, muting, and blocking in building solution.
Streamlined the verification of cell design (CI, LAC/RAC, BCCH, HSN, BSIC) and antenna parameters (Asimuths and Tilts).
Successfully improved quality of the client’s new sites and avoided any overshooting by leading initial site optimization project and providing recommendations for the neighbor site’s design. WARID TELECOM, Karachi, Pakistan 2013
Performed drives testing using TEMS 13.0 and troubleshooting level and quality issues. Analyzed log files utilizing TEMS Discovery 3.0.2, and efficiently identified different network problems including drop call, block call, missing neighbor, co-BCCH, adjacent BCCH, interference, and handover failure. Led EDGE and GPRS testing, as well as the accessibility test and the retain-ability test.
Quickly and permanently fixed muted calls, low coverage issues, handover failure issues, call blocking, and congestion. Fixed many of those issues on the spot when visiting the customer compliant location.
Expertly prepared optimization reports using MapInfo 11.0. Previous positions include an Internship in Civil Aviation Authority in the Electronics Engineering Department at Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology. EDUCATION
