For our Client in Norway we need a Senior RAN consultant/RF planner/optimizer, with RFQ experience, for choosing a new Planning tool, preferable a manager with ITIL experience, but not a must
The Radio Department has the aspiration to overhaul the Radio processes and tools portfolio of the current organization and implement a much more efficient, flexible, highly customizable and cost-effective portfolio.
In order to achieve that they have started with an RFI to understand the market and the potential solutions out there. Next steps would be to evaluate how to move forward with RFI/RFQ, existing processes or new inhouse development.

Hence this consultant is required to have broad range of current knowledge about needs and requirements of an efficient Radio organization which includes Radio rollout planning and integration, Radio systems and optimization, Radio performance and operation.
