    Company      :      Mobilink Pakistan (An Orascom Telecom company)                   
    Designation  :      NOC Engineer (Mobilink-NOC/OMCR)

     

    During my 2-1/2 year stay at OMC-R, I came across logical handling of the performance & configuration of radio part of a GSM network. I was mainly in the NOC-EAN/Deployment configuration teams (Motorola + Alcatel) where my major responsibilities included:

    • Level-2 support to field engineers related to logical configuration of sites & BSCs, often resolving a problem by re-configuring some parameters or the whole logical database of a site/BSC at OMCR.

     

    • Creation & linkage of a BSC to the OMC-R Server/Agent by configuring X25/IP addresses at Type-2 router’s TSs & their linkage to Type-1(omc-r) router's TSs, making NUCs(Nail up connections) via uncompressed CICs-TSs (if via ATM) between intra/inter MSCs.

     

    • Performed major OMCR night activities i.e. Cutover & Migration of BSCs, RXCDR swapping, re-parenting of sites, E1-abis shifting, Optimization related WOs, LAC/CI change of cells/BSCs, CIC testing/No Audio of aters, Edge implementation at cell & BSC levels, GPRS shifting of Alcatel BSC, GB parameters & RAC change (activity related to GPRS shifting of a BSC), Motorola NEs’ software up gradations, AMR project, logical del/creation of cells & add/del of int/ext neis to omcr-cells, etc.

     

    • Managing Alcatel's OMCR administrative issues in Sun Solaris i.e. handling of accounts & no. of users/server or agent, scripts making, admin & root-level configurations, etc.

    • Worked on Mobilink’s newly employed automated alarm reporting & escalating system TEMIP, designed by Hewlett-Packard mainly for creating a vendor independent monitoring/escalating platform in a multivendor NMC.

    • WOs implementation related to different depts. i.e. RF optimization (i.e. radio link related parameters' modify/change at cell/BSC levels, freqs/neis change). Deployment (i.e. sites/BSC equipages, CO downloads for new & live NEs, Sites’ RF expansions, Sites’ splitting, alarms equipages for sites & BSCs, daising-chaining a live direct site & reversely). BSS planning (ater/signalling links add/del. at BSC & RXCDR ends, nailing at RXCDR end & HR/FR enabling on radios). QoS for monitoring & analyzing the counters/indicators(KPIs) of the Alcatel/Motorola BSS system related to performance of the network i.e. zero calls, zero terminating calls, DCR, CSSR, HSR, etc.

     

    • Configuration & troubleshooting of Alcatel/Motorola GPRS facility at BSC-ater, MFS-Gpu card/PCU, Frame Relay-DLCI, ATM-VCI/VPI & SGSN-NSVC levels.

     

    • Preparation of daily/monthly system reports such as KPI monthly report for management.

    • Worked in NOC-QoS; a newly created sub-section in our NOC. The notion behind its creation was   to monitor, analyze & act on the affected KPIs well before their escalation by Optimization/BSS planning & other depts. Developed WAs/SOPs with other team members during the preliminary stages of this newly inducted sub-section as i did receive prior foreign training on this relevance.

    Foreign Training

     

    Feb 4 -10, 2007

    • Studied which & how to monitor & analyze the important counters/indicators i.e. KPIs of the BSS system at the air interface level for ensuring network’s good health.

    • Studied various causes of failures in the call setup procedures due to i.e. congestion at RACH, SDCCH or TCH allocation phases & causes of HO failures.

    • Calculating & Optimizing the Erlang traffic load per cell. Computation of call mix of a cell in order to define the capacity of the network. Cell dimensioning + Re-dimensioning (how many TRXs to be put in that cell) from call mix data.
