RF Design Team Self Audit My role in the audit was to collect supporting documentation for a set of sites in the MIK region to ensure that they were operating in compliance. Being part of the audit, I was able to contribute to the following results: • A decrease in 55 errors – a 44% improvement – Taking into account the several changes in the office over the year, this was a great accomplishment • A draft template of how future closeouts should be delivered In preparation for next year’s audit, the team is in good standing to continue decreasing the amount of errors. Some challenges to meet next year’s goal may be due to the data migration from GeoPlan to Atoll. 7 125 70 35 0 15 30 45 60 75 90 105 120 135 2015 2016 2017 44% Decrease 50% Decrease 44% Decrease in Errors New Manager Moving to Siterra Closing out NFW NFW: NetworkFlow Task Management Tool

Siterra Migration & Data Integrity With the shift to a new database and task management tool, I worked with the team’s capacity engineer to oversee the migration of data from our capacity planning tool to Siterra and ensure data integrity throughout the process. 8 Data Sorting •Filter sites by: •Build year •Carrier add type •Assign grouping to updated sites Data Integrity •Perform bulk upload for a subset of sites •Utilize Siterra reporting to validate data •When validation is confirmed, finalize bulk upload of 1,752 sites Accurate Reporting •With accurate data, Siterra can now be utilized better for: •Reporting •Planning •Cross-functional communication •The team can now take the next steps in the migration process

RF CIQ Automation The creation of the RF CIQ form was given to me to transition back to the RF Design team. To ease the transition and additional workload of the engineers, I developed a tool that would automate the process. The tools allows for the following functionality and productivity: • Produces CIQs for any cell site designed with 700, AWS, and PCS • Reduces an engineers workload by 6.5 hours a month Limitations to the tool, which are listed below, can be improved in future revisions: • Compatible only with the SDCO v4.11 • Reads a 700 carrier and up to two AWS and PCS carriers • Includes the ability to read one double block of AWS and PCS • Utilizes fixed parameters on the SDCO and RF CIQ template for locating data 9 *CIQ: Customer Inquiry Questionnaire 6.5 1.5 Hours in a Workday 81% of a workday saved!

We work 24x7 because our customers depend on us 24x7. • Though times may be challenging, we have to remember our purpose. • The hardest part of being the best is staying the best.
