WHAT I WILL BE COVERING... PROJECT ENGINEERING A NEW RADIO NETWORK – TIPS & PITFALLS…

In many development projects there appears to be a lack of understanding on the various roles and responsibilities, especially in delivering radio networks. If a client does not fully consider the project requirements it can increase the overall costs by 20-100%. This presentation will outline the key stakeholder roles required, and the responsibility and relationship between project engineer, installation contractor and maintenance technician. The breakdown of relationships between these parties is the greatest project risk – causing delays and variations, and departure from what the project was to achieve for the client.

Lawrence McKenna has extensive ICT/telecommunication experience acquired from working 16 years with Queensland Rail, three years with Project Services (Qld) and five years with SKM. This experience includes voice networking (inc. PABXs, regional-wide networks), telecommunication and transmission networks (optical fibre and microwave radio), structured cabling designs, WAN/CANs, LANs, audiovisual systems, security systems and various radiocommunication systems.

Lawrence is a member of the Standards Australia (Standards development) CT-001 (Communications Cabling), CT-002 (Broadcasting and related services), the ITU-T SG5 working group and the ITU-R ARSG-5 working group. And he was involved with the Communications Alliance Working Committee WC45: Update of Industry Code DR C524:2013 – External Telecommunication Cable Networks Code.
