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

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

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

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

I also . Values Values learned in school is different from values learned in the real world. 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 believe that what you are doing now will reflect on your future. my supervisor taught me how integration of a cell site is done.My month long intern improved my communication skills and time management. I have met different kinds of people. 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. if you do not respect others. people of my age and even people twice my age. Even if you are the richest and the most specialized in a certain field. I also learned how to get along with these people even if they are twice my age and they are all boys. I am not a kid anymore and I should be prepared on what future will bring me. Exposure to different persons namely my supervisors and colleagues at work. I also learned how to appreciate and love what I am doing. During my SIT program. they will also not respect you and will give you a bad treatment. I also learned to be diligent and punctual. 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. I also learned how to be responsible about the tasks my supervisor is giving me. I should always do what is right and cooperate with others. c. Human Relationship I have been exposed to people from different walks of life. In technical skills. 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. d.

we should check on the alarms of the site. I also learned not to complain about my workload and compare it with others. 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. The day before the deadline. My classmates are enrolling for the SIT program and I’m here still finding a company. I also learned how to be patient especially when they are problems encountered in the site. I was so depressed that time because I only have one week left and I still don’t know what to do. b) Company Related Before functionality testing. It should have zero alarms and if it has. IV. walk in or through e-mail. 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. 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.learned that I should have a harmonious relationship with my co-workers resulting to a more productive work. Since I am exposed in communicating people in the functionality testing. I was interviewed in Ericsson Telecommunications at BGC. it should be cleared first by the integrator . I completed all my requirements in school in just one day and I feel like I am a superhero that time. I submitted my resumes in JobStreet and to other wellknown companies. But I have to find a company that suits me. I have a scheduled interview at ROHM Ortigas but unfortunately I have classes that time so I failed to attend the interview. 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.

or the site engineer. This will make sure that the TUP students will be trained well and be prepared for their future. V. Me and the site engineer should restart our phone and resend the SMS/MMS. I would like to suggest that we should have more hours in this program. Suggestions and Recommendations For me. Ericsson is one of the top vendors in telecommunication industry. They will let you learn how a cell site is installed logically. 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. After 15 minutes then the alarm doesn’t come back. I would recommend Ericsson Telecommunications for future TUP interns. the functionality test lasts for a maximum of 4 hours depending on the cell site. sometimes because of this problem. The MMS is mostly affected here. It is highly recommended for students who wanted . Another problem encountered is that the time in the TANG application doesn’t update. the functionality test should resume. Another problem is when another site catches the site engineer’s Call/SMS/MMS and is detected in TANG. 240 hours is just a short time for us to learn and be exposed in the real world. Our immediate supervisor should lend money in order for us to continue our functionality test. Another problem is when the cell site is congested. 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.
