Job Description:
General Description
Responsible for the RF engineering design and system performance of wireless in-building systems. Applies propagation theory, cellular theory, RF engineering tools and antenna theory in system design to maximize coverage, capacity and performance of the in-building system in conjunction with the wireless outdoor network.
• Design of wireless in-building system radio coverage using IBwave, other RF engineering software and accepted engineering principles to achieve balance between system RF performance and total solution cost. Systems need to be in compliance with Safety Code 6 requirements.
• Design of radio system parameters including ERP, neighbour relations for UMTS network, and CSFB settings for LTE.
• Optimization of wireless network as part of integrating new in-building systems into the wireless network.
• Modify the RF system design of existing in-building systems to accommodate capacity growth and new technolgy deployment. Site visits may be required to evaluate the radio environment, feasibility and limitations of installations.
• Maintain accurate RBS, ERP, and system design information in database including IBwave Unity.
• Work with other engineers/departments to troubleshoot worst performing in-building systems; detailed one-by-one analysis of in-building systems including configurations, neighbor optimization, and parameter settings.
• Liaison with government agencies (Industry Canada, etc.) to ensure that RF installations meet the necessary standards (e.g. Safety Code 6) .
• Interface with external clients to understand and confirm wireless in-building system requirements as needed on a per project basis.
• Coordinate with other wireless carriers on shared in-building systems. Modifications may be required to ensure no harmful interference or degradation is caused to one another.
• Work with other engineering departments as well as field operations and facilities to provide sound technical in-building system design and support.
1. Graduate of a post-secondary electrical engineering program (BSc/B.Eng or equivalent).
2. Minimum two years experience in wireless in-building system design.
3. Knowledge of radio propagation theory, radio transmitter and receiver circuits, cellular system principles and two way land mobile communications with a strong focus on in-building system design.
4. Advanced level / Certification in IBWave in-building system design software.
5. Highly motivated individual with superior organizational and analytical skills.
6. Effective technical writing and communication skills in English.
7. Strong computer skills.
8. Strong interpersonal skills to be able to liaise with external clients as needed on a per project basis
