First time in history of WiMAX industry, Wateen’s RAN team has on-aired four sites without involving its vendor, Motorola.
Reportedly, due to delay in delivery from vendor’s side, one of Wateen’s RAN team took the initiative and deployed 4 sites, which are as of now on-air and live in southern region.
Lead by Tehseen Ahmed, Syed Yasir Uddin is responsible for all the integration of equipment that they had purchased from vendor, while deployment work was done by a sub-con.
Commenting on this, the RAN team lead Tehseen Ahmed said that this is the first time in the history of Wateen, RAN team have deployed sites without involving the vendor, all the installation and integration of these site are done by us.
Yasir, while speaking with ProPakistani told that there are 134 sites planned in this phase, out of which 66 are in Karachi. After successful installation of 4 sites, his team is planning to roll out all remaining sites in chunks.
It merits mentioning here that Yasir had joined Wateen a year ago as a fresh graduate.
Currently there is only one such installation team in Wateen, however, we may see more such individuals mastering the installation process.
