  • 1. Moustafa M. Nasralla, PhD (Kingston University, UK), MSc (Kingston University, UK), BSc Eng. (Hons.), Wireless, Multimedia & Networking Research Group, Faculty of SEC, Kingston University, Kingston upon Thames, KT1 Mobile number: 00966-500815538, Email: Nationality: Jordanian and holder of Saudi Iqama LinkedIn: PROFILE A telecom engineering consultant having experience working in different areas of LTE technology, including voice over LTE (VoLTE), IMS system architecture, call flow switching and signalling, LTE radio planning and optimisation, etc. My speciality is not only a technical driver but also looking at financial impacts of changing telecom market & how to overcome those challenges. Having experience working in Europe and Middle East, I understand challenges across different regions globally and knows inside out for increasing the revenue of MNOs by implementing strategic solutions financially and technically on time. Having worked with Communication Solution Company (CSC), and Kingston University, I am currently working as a Consultant with O2 Telefonica – United Kingdom over future technologies and Network Solution Designing. The industrial experience at O2 Telefonica UK mobile network operator (MNO) involves working on the deployment of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) across the UK and 4G LTE radio planning and optimisation. I aim at securing a challenging role within a wireless and network engineering area, where I can utilise my skills and practical experiences to achieve a distinguished career path.
