Clearwire partners with TEKsystems on a critical cell site commissioning project covering 900+ sites across the country.
Clearwire has established EBS leasing relationships in over 900 second- and third-tier regions across the country, areas that are important to the client’s overall rollout plan but in which Clearwire does not immediately want to build out an entire market. Meeting the EBS requirements in a single cell site in each of those regions means that Clearwire can maintain ownership of that spectrum until a planned, future full-scale network build-out.Within its engineering group, Clearwire has a dedicated, cross-functional substantial service project team tasked with ensuring compliance with all spectrum-related legal and regulatory ramifications. With the compliance deadline approaching, Clearwire made the business decision to contract for key roles within this team. Looking to change its existing staffing vendor, Clearwire chose TEKsystems based on the flexibility of our delivery model and high-quality past performance.
Each one of these resources integrated seamlessly into the client team and fulfilled key deliverables within it. For example, the regulatory analyst was responsible for developing and supporting cross-discipline support between regulatory, engineering, operations and deployment teams as well as building out and creating standard operating procedures for ongoing regulatory compliance need assessment efforts. The RF engineering and GIS analyst evaluated the existing Substantial Service project plan on a state-by-state basis and worked to improve configuration, reduce site count and improve site placement.
Two of these resources have since been taken on as full-time employees by Clearwire. The client is currently looking to TEKsystems to provide upward of 15 additional consultant resources. Additionally, we have been asked by the client to fill requisitions for 25+ resources to staff a national test project related to this initiative.
