What does an RF Design Engineer at VerizonWireless do?

These engineers design how the wireless cell site will propogate the signal based on:
location, antenna design, height of tower, surrounding terrain and rf power link budgets.

Engineers based on their knowledge of how radio frequency interacts with the surrounding elements(foliage, hills, buildings etc.) will design the cell site to maximize the level of rf power to the desired area of coverage.

Verizon Wireless employs CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) Technology which allows multiple users to share the same frequency at the same time.
In addition to offering CDMA technology to provide superior voice and data quality, Verizon Wireless is working on introducing LTE or Long Term Evolution data technology. This technology will allow customers to experience extremely high download and upload data speeds.

As you can see, wireless cell sites can be disguised as trees and cacti!

My Family

I have two boys, Milan and Ajay, ages 8 and 5 respectively.

During summers we escape the hot weather in Phoenix by vacationing in Santa Monica. We rent a condo by the boardwalk and spend the whole day on the beach.

I would show you a picture of my beautiful wife but she would hurt me if I posted it :)

Rajesh Mahant - Personal History

Hi all, this is my first ever blog and I'm more than happy to talk about who I am.

Birth Place
I was born in Toronto, Canada - YES I AM CANADIAN and unfortunately am the "butt" of jokes at my work place due to my birth place.

I grew up in Scarborough (a borough of Toronto,, Ontario and have one brother who resides in Toronto. My parents continue to live in Toronto and they enjoy teaching yoga to adults and children.
I attended McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario,( receiving a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering and Management, a 5 year double degree program.
After I graduated, I worked at Scotia McCleod, a financial company, in the I.T department where I implemented PeopleSoft financials. I continued to work at Scotia McCleod for two years until I got MARRIED to an AMERICAN girl :) - After 13 years of marriage my friends still think I got married to get a green card :)

After marriage, I moved to Rochester, NY where my wife was working. While residing in Rochester, I went back to school to receive a Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology (

During my masters program I started to work for Nextel Communication as an RF Engineer and later moved to Phoenix, AZ to continue to work as an RF Engineer but for VerizonWireless for the last 9 years.
