My name is Rajeshwaran Gajendran and I was born on 17-Sep-1985 in Bangalore, India. I did my schooling (1-10th std) from SJT Surana Jain Vidyalaya in Chennai, India and my higher secondary schooling (11th & 12th std) from GSS Jain Vidyalaya in Chennai, India. I did my Bachelor’s degree in the field of Electronics & Communication (Year 2003-07) from SRM Institute of Science & Technology in Chennai, India.
I started my carrier with Aricent Technologies (Holdings) Ltd, India in August 2007 as a Software Engineer where I was involved in 2G/3G conformance testing and AT command development. Then I moved to Bangalore in November 2010 to work with Teleca Software Solutions. I was developing test cases for T-Mobile operator using Rapid Test Designer for HSPA+ features such as Fast Dormancy (FD), DTX & DRX. I prepared test specifications for AT&T and T-Mobile Operators in USA which contains details about test case description, call flow, success & failure criteria and network settings.
I later found an oppourtunity to work in Germany in April 2012 as a 2G/3G/LTE Protocol Stack Conformance test engineer with Intel, Germany. I was performing GCF/PTCRB Protocol Stack Conformance testing of GSM, GPRS, EGPRS, UMTS, HSPA+, LTE, LTE Advanced test cases on Intel mobile platform using Anite and Rohde & Schwarz simulator. I was also doing execution of LTE RRM FDD & TDD test cases on R&S RRM Conformance Test System (TS8980).
Since 3 years I am working at Deutsche Telekom as a consultant. I am developing test scripts for 2CA, 3CA & 4CA (Carrier Aggregation), VoLTE, CMAS, Handover, Roaming and Cell-reselection scenarios using R&S CMWcards. Execution of carrier aggregation throughput measurement and mobility test cases using CAT6 and higher mobile devices on CMW 500 R&S Simulator/lab/live environment. Providing technical end-to-end support for readiness of LTE-Advanced 3 Carrier Aggregation, 4x4 MIMO within the German LTE network. Debugging issues by analyzing UE modem traces and identifying root cause of issues.
