Network Coverage Optimisation Study for Telecom Niue
Closing Date: 15 March 2024 04:00 pm
Telecom Niue aims to enhance its telecom network coverage to ensure optimal service provision across the island. This scope of work outlines the requirements for engaging an agency to conduct a comprehensive Telecom Network Coverage Optimization Study.
- Evaluate the current telecom network coverage across Niue Island.
- Identify areas with poor coverage or connectivity issues.
- Develop strategies to optimize network coverage and improve service quality.
3. Scope of Work:
3.1. Initial Assessment:
- Review existing network coverage and infrastructure.
- Analyze coverage data, including signal strength, signal-to-noise ratio, and Data through put levels.
- Identify areas with suboptimal coverage, dead zones, and potential sources of interference.
3.2. Field Survey and Data Collection:
- Conduct field surveys to validate existing coverage and identify coverage gaps.
- Collect data on signal strength, network performance, and connectivity issues across different locations.
- Utilize specialized equipment and tools to measure coverage parameters accurately.
3.3. Network Optimization Strategies:
- Develop optimization strategies to improve network coverage and address identified gaps.
- Recommend the deployment of additional base stations, repeaters, or signal boosters to extend coverage.
- Evaluate the feasibility of implementing alternative technologies, such as Wi-Fi hotspots or/ offload, in areas.
3.4. Infrastructure Enhancement:
- Assess the condition and capacity of existing network infrastructure, including towers, antennas, and transmission equipment.
- Identify opportunities for infrastructure upgrades or optimization to support expanded coverage and capacity requirements.
3.5. Documentation and Reporting:
- Prepare a comprehensive report summarizing the findings of the coverage optimization study.
- Provide detailed recommendations for improving network coverage and service quality.
- Include coverage maps, data analysis results, and proposed implementation plans in the final report.
- Detailed coverage optimization report outlining current coverage status, identified gaps, and proposed strategies for improvement.
- Comprehensive implementation plan with recommended actions.
- Presentation materials for stakeholders summarizing key findings and recommendations.
The timeline for the completion of the Telecom Network Coverage Optimization Study shall be 4 weeks from signing, subject to negotiation and agreement between Telecom Niue and the selected agency.
Telecom Niue invites proposals from qualified agencies outlining their proposed budget for conducting the Telecom Network Coverage Optimization Study.
7. Evaluation Criteria:
Proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Demonstrated expertise and experience in telecom network coverage optimization.
- Proposed approach and methodology for conducting the study.
- Understanding of Niue’s geographical and environmental factors affecting coverage.
- Cost-effectiveness and feasibility of proposed optimization strategies.
- Ability to deliver actionable recommendations within the specified timeline.
8. Proposal Submission:
Interested agencies are invited to submit their proposals in accordance with the guidelines provided by Telecom Niue.
Telecom Niue seeks to engage a qualified agency to conduct the Telecom Network Coverage Optimization Study and improve telecom network coverage across the island for the benefit of its residents and businesses.
- While there is a closing date for website technical reasons, interests are being invited from now on. Submissions will be assessed as they arrive with discussions that may ensue immediately thereafter
- This invite is also to encourage responses from members who have already successfully completed similar studies, and who would be willing to share with Telecom Niue in a technical cooperation agreement.
The end of the cyclone season (April/May) is the target point for the study to be done
