Problems & Solutions

  1. Problem 1 Career Episode 1 and its Solution

The very first problem was faced during the SMPS installation. He did not find any power in the SMPS. By utilizing his knowledge on the telecommunication and network, he checked the power from the wall socket. He found it was ok. Then, he checked the power switch of the cabinet and front panel of the motherboard. He found some problem in the cabinet. Despite being a telecom and network engineering, He learned a lot of information regarding electrical and electronics for this project, which helped him to accomplish this type of problem too. He fixed the problem of the power switch of the cabinet and hence resolved the problem to test the installation of SMPS.

  1. Problem 2 Career Episode 1 and its Solution

He found another problem as the frequency variation. He found the frequency variation involved in changing normal frequency according to the geographical location. After investigation on the cause, he found it was due to the erratic operation of the emergency generators and unstable frequency power source. Because of this cause, it led to a loss of data, failure of components and equipment, etc. Therefore in order to avoid that problem, he applied power conditioners and voltage regulator to the system. This helped him minimizing the variation of frequency.

  5. To develop the site survey detail report which include all the details of the site, complying the requirements of the client.
  6. To install the surge arrestor for the purpose of protecting the equipment from the high voltage that might cause due to the external source as lightning and internal source as switching of the equipment.
  7. To mount the GPS antenna and install the cable tray when necessary with the labelling for all the cables and sectors.
  8. To alter the mechanical as well as the electrical tilt of the GSMs by adding the required parameters so that GSMs could have appropriate coverage.
  9. To work for the acceptance test, which was essential for determining the fulfilment of the requirements of the installation of the BTS in accordance with the requirement of the client.
  10. To also prepare the site folder and also include a very recording of the test conducted and finally submitted it.
  11. To ensure the safety of both the employee and machinery such as safety measures that needed to be adopted like preventive maintenance of the tolls, machines and equipment.

Problems & Solutions

  1. Problem 1 Career Episode 2 and its Solution

During the scheduling of the cables in the installation of BTS, initially, he made the use of three single core cables in the termination box of the system. Later he observed that on using the single core cables, it occupied a large space in the tray. Due to which, for making single connectivity, three single cores cable were required. The cables were also stacked. So to get rid of the problem faced, he consulted with the higher department head, and there they suggested him to make the use of the signal cable with three cores instead of three cables of a single core. As a result, it also occupied less space in the tray as well as there was no more problem of stacking of the cables which eventually helped in easy installation of BTS.

  1. Problem 2 Career Episode 2 and its Solution

The next problem he faced was that the base transceiver station (BTS) was not working properly after its installation. This had created major issues for the entire team of the project. As a solution to this problem, he organized a meeting with the senior level staffs, where there was a discussion about the acceptance test. He also asked the technicians who were involved during the installation work to have the checking the connectivity of each cable in an efficient manner. There we found that the connection of the cables was altered in the termination board. So he asked the technicians not to have hurry for integrating the cables and connectors so that there would be less chance of occurrence of faults in the system.

  9. To use the software tools to create spider maps to see the dominant calls feeders and overshoot calls.
  10. To provide a suggestion regarding the increment of the height of the antenna for better line of sight followed by the adjustment of the antenna orientation adjustment and changing the ARFCNs.

Problems & Solutions

  1. Problem 1 Career Episode 3 and its Solution

During the testing of the coverage signal, he found issues with the handover of the mobile signal. He found that the failure of the handover made the signal transfer to the older channel, and the calls were dropped. This resulted in a decrements of the signal quality. He thus suggested on the reorientation of the sectors for better network coverage to the network analyst. This was done for the longer and shorter calls that were dropped to decrease the failure rate.

  1. Problem 2 Career Episode 3 and its Solution

Another issue he encountered was with the varying signals received during the testing. He found that the local environment and the construction materials played a vital role in the drop calls as similar signals were colliding with each other and resulted in some calls being dropped. For solving this issue, he suggested tilting the antenna for that location. To make sure that there were no other issues related to dropping calls, he suggested the use of a signal booster.
