Guide to Fill up AT Tablet Using Siteforge

RJIL Project (India)

AT Assessments:
Adonis M. Amparo
Sr. Systems Engineer
September 2014
Ceragon Networks
Background:
Completion of site data, commissioning information and
supporting photos during AT is the first step for the customer to
evaluate the link acceptance. It is necessary that all information
satisfies the quality requirement of customer CTO to proceed
with site verification and approval of each link.

Cause of the Problem:


Although field engineers have configured and prepared
the link for acceptance, some of the necessary information
captured in AT tablets dont satisfy the requirement of AT
document. Quality engineers have to verify correct data and
capture the necessary information again. Some of them requires
multiple visit to the site resulting to delay of AT submission and
longer turnaround time of project completion.
