Ranplan appoints new ME head of sales


Ranplan has appointed Farouq Mustafa to head of sales in the Middle East. He has vast experience in end-to-end telecommunication and wireless technologies and has worked closely with regional telcos, international vendors and system integrators.

Prior to joining Ranplan, he held senior positions at various organisations including Cambridge Broadband and Etihad Etisalat and has contributed to telecom projects in the Middle East. He holds a degree in Telecom Engineering from Mutah University in Jordan.

“It’s a great opportunity to work with such a fast growing and internationally respected company,” said Mustafa.

“There is no doubt that now is the time for indoor/outdoor small cell and DAS solutions, but this creates challenges to deliver maximum coverage and QoS. Ranplan can play a major role supporting the fast growing demand for wireless data and harnessing the next generation of network technologies across the Middle East efficiently and cost effectively,” he added.

“We are delighted to have Farouq on-board to drive our expansion within the Middle East and address the indoor/outdoor RF planning challenge with a truly vendor-independent approach,” said Graham Peel, CEO of Ranplan.

Ranplan offers an all-in-one, vendor-neutral solution for indoor and outdoor wireless network planning, design and optimisation. iBuildNet simplifies and reduces the time and cost for small cell, DAS and HetNet deployments, using advanced 3D modelling and ray-tracing along with powerful data analysis to automatically optimise AP locations, antenna type, power and channel assignment, according to the company.
