MANAGEMENT STREAMLINES YOUR TELECOM PLANS

  • You know the ins and outs of your business on an intimate level. But when it comes to your wireless technology, you may be left scratching your head. In a technical telecom field — one that needs a skilled professional handling the installation and troubleshooting. This is where a telecom project manager comes onto the scene.

    This type of field engineer provides complete oversight and management of whatever project you’re attempting, from installing a new network to testing and maintaining an existing one. Professional telecom project management takes the weight off your own shoulders as your manager handles your network needs, keeping you in the know and coordinating team efforts. You’ll receive the constant attention that’s necessary for bringing you online while being freed to keep your focus on the day-to-day operation of your business.

    The Functions of a Telecom Project Manager

    The telecommunications project management role encompasses a range of responsibilities, so your project manager can provide you with support and expertise in every aspect of the process, from start to finish. Whether you need a system installed from the ground up or need to address a problem in your current system, a project manager will be able to give the necessary oversight to planning and implementing a solution.

    Site Survey

    The first step in a new system setup is the site survey, in which your telecommunications project manager assesses your location and its IT infrastructure. The field engineer will create a network blueprint for your building’s interior, determine the ideal placement for access points or cell site deployments, estimate the hardware needs and cost of the job at hand, and assess the condition of fiber to the building (FTTB). This survey will be the launch point from which all other elements of the project will be planned.
