Description
Employability Skills
Learning Outcomes and Application This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop planning strategies for the design phase to meet present and future demands, and involves gathering information on network capability, anticipated network deployment demand and scoping design requirements to produce building planning specifications.It applies to individuals with a high level of specialist technical skills and knowledge in telecommunications and IT networks using internet protocol (IP) systems.No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
Duration and Setting X weeks, nominally xx hours, delivered in a classroom/online/blended learning setting.

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the Telecommunications – Network Planning field of work and include access to:

computer aided design (CAD)

computer networks

data for network planning

network equipment deployment plans

planning models

relevant standards and regulations.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.

Elements of Competency Performance Criteria              
Element: Evaluate building environment requirements
  • Utilise network equipment deployment plans to convert network equipment specifications into building requirements data
  • Determine planned and forecast network equipment deployment locations and quantities to prioritise tasks
  • Formulate justification to proceed by analysing business requirements and benefits to the business
  • Analyse current building capacities or capabilities against planned deployment data to determine building environment shortfalls or additional needs
  • Determine minimum needs required to address identified building services shortfalls, upgrades or changes
  • Identify relevant standards, business and regulatory requirements that are essential for building plan compliance
       
Element: Scope building design requirements
  • Quantify building requirements from known needs to determine if any standard deliverables can be used
  • Assess if requirements can be met using new or alternative solutions
  • Provide estimated costs and schedule to determine a planning solution
  • Prepare a scoping document and supporting documentation with recommendations that complies with deployment standards and regulatory requirements
       
Element: Produce project brief
  • Prepare a project scope in required briefing format to present to the design section
  • Plan project delivery to meet any business timing and funding constraints
  • Produce building planning specifications with approvals and present to the building design section to be used for detailed design or construction specifications
       


Evidence Required

List the assessment methods to be used and the context and resources required for assessment. Copy and paste the relevant sections from the evidence guide below and then re-write these in plain English.

Performance Criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Evaluate building environment requirements

1.1 Utilise network equipment deployment plans to convert network equipment specifications into building requirements data

1.2 Determine planned and forecast network equipment deployment locations and quantities to prioritise tasks

1.3 Formulate justification to proceed by analysing business requirements and benefits to the business

1.4 Analyse current building capacities or capabilities against planned deployment data to determine building environment shortfalls or additional needs

1.5 Determine minimum needs required to address identified building services shortfalls, upgrades or changes

1.6 Identify relevant standards, business and regulatory requirements that are essential for building plan compliance

2. Scope building design requirements

2.1 Quantify building requirements from known needs to determine if any standard deliverables can be used

2.2 Assess if requirements can be met using new or alternative solutions

2.3 Provide estimated costs and schedule to determine a planning solution

2.4 Prepare a scoping document and supporting documentation with recommendations that complies with deployment standards and regulatory requirements

3. Produce project brief

3.1 Prepare a project scope in required briefing format to present to the design section

3.2 Plan project delivery to meet any business timing and funding constraints

3.3 Produce building planning specifications with approvals and present to the building design section to be used for detailed design or construction specifications

Evidence of ability to:

assess building environment requirements to provide network capability for current and forecast demand including consideration of merging technological development and product implementation

prepare and present a detailed scoping document with solutions, costing and project scheduling recommendations

meet forecast network capability needs and regulatory requirements.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

identify and discuss capability and limitations of the various network technologies to meet present and future needs

describe different costing and funding models

outline the process to review limits of a building’s facilities and services

identify network equipment requirements and use to derive building’s specifications

identify network building design

identify and apply relevant regulations and standards

discuss typical problems and challenges that describe the limitations of the various building projects work

identify ways to remain abreast of current building requirements to meet future service obligations.
