Profile/Cover Letter: PROFILE

RF engineer with main focus on radio network optimization and drive test for WDCMA network. I have broad experience through projects with operator in Malaysia. As an RF Engineer I was placed in a telecommunication project involving in upbringing of a cellular network, starting from initial plan stage to the network implementation and finally the optimization phase. My vision is to be a RF Expert I was attached with Telco vendor as a Drive Test Engineer and Radio Network Optimizer. I learnt the practical approach on network analyzing and optimization process of a cellular system, specifically WCDMA (3rd Generation Mobile Network System). I have worked in tight schedule with deadlines, worked as a team to complete tasks and also liaise with managers, engineers and technicians within my department as well as operator (DiGi/Maxis/Celcom), vendors and other sub-contractors.

I have a very strong Ericsson of handling Ericsson Tools such as TEMS Investigation and TEMS Route Analysis of WCDMA networks, ITK For Ericsson Stats & NePa for network dump parser with very good understanding of its features and including HSDPA and HSUPA. Not to forget with Nemo Analyze 5 which widely used for my optimization project. Plus I am familiar with other drive test tools and optimization tools (Actix Sofwtare, Nemo Outdoor, Nemo Handy, Scanner, MapInfo, and Mcom).

Apart from WCDMA experience, I do have experience in GSM network. My GSM experience involved drive testing and post-processing plus optimization for 2G network in DiGi Malaysia. The GSM tools that were used are TEMS Investigation 9.2, MapInfo, MCOM, Nemo Outdoor 5 for drive test and Nemo Analyze for Post-processing.

I have a strong interpersonal skills and good communication. Confident with an outgoing personality. Able to work independently and in a group aswell. A good team player and passionately committed to producing truly world class results. Im always looking for an opportunity to make strong contribution to organizational goals through continued development of professional skills.
