Description Responsibilities : Review 3GPP standards, architectural and design documents to develop thorough and in-depth test plans for testing LTE / 5G / O-RAN System / Nodal functionalities.
Guide testing plan on test scripts using available test tools. Guide and build test setups as per the requirements of the test case.
Execute test cases and validate the test status based on the expectations for the test ccase. Analyze system logs, test tool logs and use this information for debugging issues and identifying accurate root causes for the problems seen on the system under test or in the network.
Use test expertise to identify overall improvements and enhancements which are possible on the system. Debug field data and identifying potential problems and re-creating the same in the lab.
