widen our knowledge about our course. Number of Rectifier Module. II. Enrolling of Sites for MSC Core Definition. find a nominal point then inspect the place and make a proposal. For 2G. TAC and ENODEB should be defined. put theories and principles learned in school into practice in order for us to enhance our skills and abilities. For 3G. Number of Battery Banks. Rectifier Voltage and Distribution Current. I’ve compiled all the TSSR documents and listed all the Rectifier Equipment details like the Rectifier Brand. It is the time for us trainees and students to learn new things. Parañaque. Pooling of sites means that the transmission is not a one-way communication. Battery Brand and Capacity. This will also help us to determine what track we wish to specialized with. the LAC and SAC of the RBS should be defined in all the MSC core. Jobs Performed in the Company Technical Site Survey Report In my first day of internship. In enrolling of sites.I. This is the first step in making a cell site. Introduction Supervised Industrial Training Program is a partial requirement of the graduating students that will help them face the real world. the site engineer will first call us in . It should be defined in all the MSC core when the site is pooling. we will first enroll the sites. I was assigned in SMART NOC. For LTE. They are the one who will design and inspect if the cell site is capable for an upgrade. Before we can start a functionality test. the CGI of the RBS in the sites should be defined in all the MSC core. I was first assigned in Installation Engineering Department.

Functionality Testing have its Functionality Testing form. expands the capacity of 2G into 3G. We cannot test a certain site as long as it has alarms on it. we should checked if the LAC/SAC/CGI/TAC/ENODEB of the RBS is defined in all the MSC core. Citrix Application Citrix contains the application. We will get their necessary details in our Client Device Driver. Usual alarms are “BTS Internal”. Alarm List Viewer that is used in order for us to check the alarms of the sites. BTS Internal is an alarm that will be fixed by out integrators. This is because the MSC is the one who will give a signal to the site engineer’s cellular telephone when it is locked in a cell’s BCCH number. Video Call. A cell site should be first integrated before enrolling it. “BTS External” and “Cell Logical”. The Citrix will also show us if the site has a defined neighbors or if it has only its sector as its neighbor. Ericsson. Our integrators are from our own company. It also has a TRX Expansion activity that will add a Transceiver in the cell site in order to maximize the capacity of the subscriber. Project MEOW is a 4G project needed to be FT. BTS External is an alarm that will be fixed by the site engineers.our test phone and will give us a site ID to be tested and their activity in the site. that is usually a Dual-Band site. and they are the one logically installing the cell sites using the application WinFiol. Functionality Test for 2G and 3G/LTE (Voice Call. A Band Expansion. Project UNO has a Swap/Rehoming activity that is the Smart cell site will be swapped in to a Sun cell site. Refarming is also an activity in a site. SMS and MMS) First. Ericsson has a project called “Project UNO” and “MEOW”. In this form. It is mostly in SNCR. we should fill up all .

This is the new way of functionality testing. the Voice Call and SMS. We need to test the Voice Calls. it has 3 sectors with 2 cells in each. I and the site engineer will exchange voice calls and it is monitored by the SMART BIS using the application TANG. S6 or S7. I just registered my IMSI number and my cellphone number in the date base. BSC and its phone number. My phone is Samsung Galaxy Duos 2 and its accuracy is less than 100m. It is just a 1-minute test and will upload the measurement directly in the SRS data base. SRS will automatically locked yourself in a certain Cell ID and will start the FT if you are located in the same Cell ID. and if the time does not update. its equipment type. the SMART BIS will type a command for SMS/MMS or Video Call/Voice Call. SMS and MMS for 3G. Smart Rollout Support SRS is an Ericsson application that will let you see all the sites in your location. For LTE. SMS and MMS for 2G.the necessary information like the Cell ID of each sector and its BCCH number. For example if I have received a call from the site engineer. it has 3 sectors. RBS. it is the same for 3G but the only difference is that the drive test is live being watched by the SMART BIS. This application works on all android phones but it recommends high accuracy smartphones like Samsung S5. The TANG shows the time and the Cell ID of the sector/cell tested. For 2G. It is like a google map or google earth that contains all the cell sites in a certain location. The SMART BIS will first track the cell phone number of the site engineer and the site engineer needs to lock to a certain sector/cell using the sector/cell BCCH number in order for him/her not to transfer to another site. It will measure the ping. or the site engineer is not in the correct sector/cell we should repeat it. and Voice Calls. For 3G. Video Calls. I have encountered an .

Network Support Subsystem and the Operational Support Subsystem. Skills . The second generation cellular telephone system (2G) has technologies like global system for mobile communications (GSM). and for the fourth generation cellular telephone system (4G) has the technology called long term evolution (LTE). I also learned the steps in installing/upgrading cell sites. this includes the cell planning and their neighbors. with approval and zero alarms on it. For third generation cellular telephone system (3G). it contains the Base Station Subsystem. b. Knowledge Last semester. First is to locate a nominal point where the site will be installed. Final stage is optimization. service provisioning. Third is the design. the OSS are computer systems used by telecommunications service providers to manage their networks. Fifth is Functionality Test making sure that the site is ON AIR. Experienced earned in terms of: a. They make sure that the site which enhances the cell site capacity and capability to be of commercial use to our contingents. They support management functions such as network inventory. The Network Operations Center is under the OSS. I took up Digital Communications and we have studied the cellular technology and the GSM architecture. for cell site implementation and licensing. In the GSM architecture. Fourth is the work of our integrators. I have completed the measurement and uploaded it successfully. But on my second try. Second is Site Survey which is supervised by the Installation Engineers. network configuration and fault management. III. general packet radio service (GPRS).unsuccessful measurement at first because of Site Mismatch. high speed packet access (HSPA).

if you do not respect others. people of my age and even people twice my age. I am not a kid anymore and I should be prepared on what future will bring me. Human Relationship I have been exposed to people from different walks of life. c. Values Values learned in school is different from values learned in the real world. I believe that what you are doing now will reflect on your future. The functionality testing of sites have schedules to be followed and I should learn to manage my time especially when I am alone at work. During my SIT program. I also learned how to be responsible about the tasks my supervisor is giving me. d. Respect is more important in this world if you want to make peace with them. answering phone calls regarding queries about cell sites has been worth pondering. I should always do what is right and cooperate with others. my supervisor taught me how integration of a cell site is done. I also learned how to lock/unlock a site when it is needed using the OSS Common Explorer and blocking/unblocking of sites using WinFiol. I also learned how to get along with these people even if they are twice my age and they are all boys. they will also not respect you and will give you a bad treatment. Even if you are the richest and the most specialized in a certain field. My superiors have shared their personal and work experiences with us that serve as our inspiration to pursue our goals in life and in our profession. I have learned to respect people and follow my superior’s commands and never complain about it. In technical skills. I also learned how to appreciate and love what I am doing. I also learned to be diligent and punctual.My month long intern improved my communication skills and time management. I also . Exposure to different persons namely my supervisors and colleagues at work. I have met different kinds of people.

I was so nervous that time and hoping that everything will turn out right and yes! I was accepted and was advised that I should start my internship the following week. we should check on the alarms of the site. The day before the deadline. I completed all my requirements in school in just one day and I feel like I am a superhero that time. I was so depressed that time because I only have one week left and I still don’t know what to do. I also learned not to complain about my workload and compare it with others. I submitted my resumes in JobStreet and to other wellknown companies. Problems met while on training a) School Related I have experienced a lot of stress when it comes to finding the right company for me. I have a scheduled interview at ROHM Ortigas but unfortunately I have classes that time so I failed to attend the interview.learned that I should have a harmonious relationship with my co-workers resulting to a more productive work. I was interviewed in Ericsson Telecommunications at BGC. I should have a company first week of April but my COE professors have not given us our final grade yet even if they knew we are going to have our SIT program. walk in or through e-mail. it should be cleared first by the integrator . I also learned how to be patient especially when they are problems encountered in the site. Since I am exposed in communicating people in the functionality testing. I was so nervous that time because I do not know if I can take the SIT this summer or I have to repeat a subject. It should have zero alarms and if it has. IV. But I have to find a company that suits me. My classmates are enrolling for the SIT program and I’m here still finding a company. b) Company Related Before functionality testing.

sometimes because of this problem. It is highly recommended for students who wanted . 240 hours is just a short time for us to learn and be exposed in the real world.or the site engineer. I would recommend Ericsson Telecommunications for future TUP interns. the functionality test lasts for a maximum of 4 hours depending on the cell site. Our immediate supervisor should lend money in order for us to continue our functionality test. They will let you learn how a cell site is installed logically. Another problem is when the cell site is congested. This will make sure that the TUP students will be trained well and be prepared for their future. The MMS is mostly affected here. Another problem encountered is that the time in the TANG application doesn’t update. the functionality test should resume. Suggestions and Recommendations For me. After 15 minutes then the alarm doesn’t come back. They will let you feel that you are a functionality testing engineer. More hours of training will give us a lot of knowledge and skills about a specific field. I have also experienced problems like our postpaid line is cut off and we have no load and there is no engineer present. I also would suggest that the Technological University of the Philippines should have proper coordination with partner companies where the students enrolled in Supervised Industrial Training Program can have their on the job trainings. V. Ericsson is one of the top vendors in telecommunication industry. I would like to suggest that we should have more hours in this program. Another problem is when another site catches the site engineer’s Call/SMS/MMS and is detected in TANG. Me and the site engineer should restart our phone and resend the SMS/MMS.
