Quality Assurance Initiative

MAHDI BAGH COMPUTERS PRIVATE LIMITED is one of the key Consultants empanelled with GVF for this initiative worldwide. Need: To Identify Gaps; Optimize Overall performance; Enhance Stability; Save Costs; Mitigate Interference & Modernize. The end-to end flow is as follow-s

Our team of domain knowledge experts undertake following,

Planning : Wherein Interviews, meetings and group discussions is conducted with end user-s as well as service providers and OEM-s who support or contribute towards management of the network operations.

In this phase we study the initial TOR; Contract & Order from the client; so as to quantify and set benchmarks for measurements vis-a-vis availability in the Gap Analysis. Technical Whetting & On Site Visit-s:

Technical Evaluation : Review Link Budget; Test Latency; Ping Response; Get data from the NMS, Visit Hub, NOC & Teleport; check on the Backhaul performance, etc.

Site Visits: Conduct Site Visits. Assess the Quality of Installation & Maintenance; Weather proofing of connectors; Placement of the equipments Outdoor & Indoor; Check the Power Condition; Grounding; Test Antenna Optimization & Peaking; Verify Interference if any, (Identity source) Conduct tests on the link; Measure parameters with Spectrum Analyzer; Review applications performance from the remote site like Audio-Video conference/Data Transfer or FTP-s, etc.
