What you will learn and contribute to
Are you passionate about solving problems?
As part of our team, you will :
Manage the delivery of network planning projects according to the agreed scope of work (SoW), while managing customer’s expectations and schedule of acceptance.
Study the RF design coverage maps and identify problem areas in terms of coverage, interference, or pilot pollution.
Collect all design assumptions for the assigned market from Project & Customer Lead, including antenna database, morphology classes, coverage boundaries, site database, hotspots, service expectations, traffic data, and regulatory data (ASAC / FAA / FCC).
Performs critical (sometimes escalated) design activities in customer projects independently. These may include complex problem-solving in projects with Design requirements in a multi-vendor environment.
Leads and executes technical activities and projects in own responsibility area. May work also outside of own process area on technical issues.
Solves complex engineering problems in many technology areas. Coaches other team members.
Thorough understanding of 3GPP specifications for LTE / LTE-A / 5G features and Protocols.
Interprets internal and external business challenges and recommends best practices to improve products, processes, and services.
Strong knowledge of Radio product architecture E2E Network overview and interfaces.

Responsible for leading all technical discussions on Nokia products / features with several customer vertical organizations including 4G / 5G RAN Development groups and RAN performance groups.
Obtain Link Budget from the RF Design Guidelines.
Create a project in the Atoll / 9955 RF planning tool on suitable PC / Cloud platforms. Load the terrain, clutter, antenna database, coverage boundaries, site database, traffic data, and detailed maps for the area (streets, major highways, local roads).
Identify geographical features, not in the terrain and clutter databases. Incorporate path loss model, design assumptions, and link budget data in design, produce traffic maps, and run predictions and simulations as described in the RF Design.
Establish an internal design review with other RF Design Engineers.
Recommend and implement changes in various network parameters including translation parameters, antenna configurations, etc.
Generate final design documents and presentations and present them to Nokia customers.
Experience with RF planning tools (Atoll, 9955) is a must. Knowledge of Atoll including the ability to run ACP.
May lead a project team with the responsibility to create plans and delegate tasks to team members.
