Preliminary Design - RF link budgets, initial antenna and cable layouts, BOMs 4. Statement of Work -Project requirements are clearly defined 5. RF Survey / CW testing - Perform interference &amp; propagation measurements 6. Update design - Revise preliminary design &amp; BOM based on results 7. Pre-Construction Survey - Installer walk-thru to validate cable routes &amp; equip. locations 8. Final Design - Revise based on changes to installation design if necessary 9. Order Equipment - Order equipment 10. Installation - Install cables, antennas and active equipment 11. Commissioning - Verify RF &amp; optical cable performance (if applicable); set system gains; test 12.
