From September 2006 to August 2007 worked in Nokia Siemens Networks, Islamabad as Project Engineer.

During this period, provided technical support for the operation and maintenance of fixed telephony network to Pakistan’s largest telecommunication network, PTCL. As a member of Q&M (Configuration and Management) team, I have been responsible for integrating Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) – newly commissioned as well as those upgraded with enhanced features – to the main network for mobile phone operator, Telenor Pakistan.
