Choosing an RF Consultant for Your Wireless Widget Project

Jim Ussallis, National Wireless, Inc.

So you need an RF consultant, eh?

There are several warning signs that occur during a project that employs wireless that indicate an RF consultant is necessary for that project. Jim will cover some of these critical areas where a consultant can provide insight before and during project development.

So, how is this consultant picked from the crowd?

Jim will lead us thru some of the steps provide for a good fit between the task and consultant.  He will also cover items that both the consultant, and you, should bring to the table before starting and while working on the project.

So, where is this crowd of RF consultants?

If you follow the trade advertisements, you might conclude that RF consulting is now dying vocation, replaced by the latest software ‘solution.’ Within this discussion, Jim will provide some advice to help you on that elusive search for the consultant (or software) that provides this good fit between you and your project..
