CHAPTER 1:

General Introduction

1.1) Definition of WiMAX: WiMAX, meaning Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology that provides wireless transmission of data using a variety of transmission modes, from point-to-multipoint links to portable and fully mobile internet access. The technology provides up to 10 Mbit/s broadband speed without the need for cables. The technology is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard (also called Broadband Wireless Access)

1.2) Introduction of WiMAX: In the mid 1990's, telecommunication companies developed the idea to use fixed broadband wireless networks for potential last mile solutions to provide an alternate. means to deliver Internet connectivity to businesses and individuals. Their aim was to produce a network with the speed, capacity, and reliability of a hardwired network, while maintaining with the flexibility, simplicity, and low costs of a wireless network. This technology would also act as a versatile system for corporate or institutional backhaul distribution networks and would attempt to compete with the leading Internet carriers. This broadband system extended the WiMAX service to a 30-mile range and had the ability to disperse its network between hundreds of terminals. Yet the IEEE did not stop there. In 2005, they came out with the first Mobile WiMAX system: 802.16e. This version used a Scalable Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (SOFDMA) engine, which supported over 2,000 subcarriers, optimized handover delay and packet loss, and increased network security. The IEEE continues to update and modify the WiMAX system specifications to further improve its capabilities. They have made a push to publish their next major 802.16 standard named 802.16m. One of the goals for this version is to increase data speeds to 1Gbps. IEEE also looks ahead to approve and deploy the 802.20 standard in the near future, which has dubbed the nickname Mobile-Fi. Many WiMAX Forum certified products for fixed and nomadic applications are currently commercially available and are constantly being developed. It is then no wonder why WiMAX is a leader of emerging wireless standards and continues to write its own history.

1.3 Use of Internet in Bangladesh A new social class is being created, mainly amongst the young generation who find the Internet an effective tool for their career development and globalization of their thoughts and creativity. Many Internet users have stated that a whole new world has been opened to them, they are getting a new source of knowledge, and they are also marketing relations with many good friends and organizations worldwide. But some say that going online is a very costly habit, which sometimes appears as an addiction and causes a big waste of time. A group of young people, notable from the affluent section of the society, is abusing the Internet by using it mostly for entertainment, which is certainly not a healthy practice for a poor country like us. But the saddest news is that Bangladesh has yet to set up an academic network to provide Internet access to the large number of university teachers, students, scientists, researchers who play vital roles in building a better nation.

Here it is shown that how much internet users are increasing day by day in Bangladesh. Here we are showing the number of internet users in Bangladesh by mobile and other media. Roughly almost 3, 10, 00,000 users are enjoying internet facility in Bangladesh by various reasons not regular basis.

12

First of all, I did not find any secondary data specifically on the Internet Service Providors of Bangladesh. For this reason, to get the answer of certain questions I had go through people's opinion. While doing the survey lots of people did not want to respond to many questions. Sometimes they even did not fill out the questionnaire properly for the busy schedule. For this reason, sometimes I had to ask them questions from my questionnaire instead of giving them hard copy. Secondly, Time was one of the major constraints. As our internship program is only three-month long, it was difficult to cover and collect all the necessary materials for completion of such a large report within this time boundary. I also would like to mention that the people of telecommunications and ISPs are under tremendous workload. Although, they wanted to co-operate me in writing my report, their busy schedules sometimes did not allow them to do so. On the other hand, due to secrecy of official information, sometimes they showed unwillingness .to provide me information. Finally, political unrest of our country such as strike or hartal was major problem in this regard as it is difficult to go out and work during that time and to maintain the work schedule.

Chapter 6 RESEARCH FINDINGS:

44

6.1 Nature of the Research


The research is based on both quantitative and qualitative study.

Qualitative:
The qualitative aspect of the report will include a description of the major communication problems faced by the CSR personnel/Agency of Banglalion Communications. This section will try to cover major awareness obstacles that are faced and how they are dealt with or if it is possible to deal with them. This section will also try to find whether there is any relationship between the major problems received and the location of the program.

This section will further address certain recommendations provided by the general people and agency and their impact on the improvement of performance of Banglalion.

Quantitative:
The level of awareness of the general people on Banglaions Corporate Social Responsibility program as well as Banglalions overall system has been covered by the questionnaire. In this questionnaire, awareness level of the root level people has been quantified.

The specific objectives were kept in mind when addressing the questionnaire. Each question was farmed with consideration to the scales to be used in the analysis.

6.1.2 Research Instrument


As mentioned earlier a questionnaire has been used for the quantitative analysis part. The questionnaire was then followed-up by another direct interview and telephone
45

calls to judge the level of knowledge of the CSR experts and professionals about Banglalion.

6.1.3 Population
The very basic step in research designing is to define the population upon which we are conducting this study. Population of the study has been identified as: General people or top management employees who are listed with the Banglalion records. The main rationale behind taking this population is that members belonging to the above-mentioned section will be able to give the exact picture of the situation that exists between them and Banglalion. Being the owners and top management employees, they will be able to provide more accurate details and provide a broader perspective than would have been available from any other employee.

6.1.4 Sampling: Sample Units:


Sample units in this research are top management of the region. Here top management is defined as those individuals in the different region who are in the major decisionmaking body of particular areas. Under this definition comes the Owners, Managing Directors, Executive Directors, Sales & Marketing Managers, etc.

Sample size:
The total number of activation CSR projects in Bangladesh is over 50. Owing to time constraints and unavailability of concerned persons it was not possible to survey all divisions. Thus a total sample size of 50 respondents was taken and the report is based on the findings from this sample size. It should also be mentioned that the survey did not take into account.

Sampling Method
The study has been conducted by using a probabilistic method, as the complete listing regarding the sampling units was available. This method provides essentially unbiased estimates having measurable precision.

Sampling Technique
For this study area cluster sampling have used. This is a special form of cluster sampling in which the sample items are clustered on a demographical basis. The technique here is to first select a sample of demographic areas, then studying the particular universe units associated with the selected sample of geographic areas. This cluster or group has been taken on the notion that the members of these groups are externally homogenous and internally heterogeneous among themselves. The characteristics for homogeneity are given below:
46

1. 2.

They are the service holders, day laborers, students and other profession. They are the top management people with expertise in CSR.

Members within both these groups are homogenous in terms of these abovementioned criteria. However, the two groups are heterogeneous due to the differences in the volume of each criterion between these each group. This is the key factor that makes them heterogeneous. In addition to this there are other factors for heterogeneity and they are given below: 1. 2. 3. 4. Monthly activation unit. Monthly media coverage from Newspaper and television. Knowledge and awareness of Banglalion products and services. Satisfaction level of agency regarding Banglalion CSR events.

6.1.5 Errors:
Doing a research of such proportions may have resulted in errors to take place. Much potential error is systematic, the error that results from bias, while the remainder is random, an error that occurs in an erratic fashion.

This research paper takes into account these cases of errors. Major sources of error have been identified as follows:

Situation as an Error: This perhaps has been one of the principle sources of errors. Such errors usually result from any condition that may have placed a strain on the interview. Everyone in the top management of an outlet is extremely busy and managers of different functional areas constantly visit them for various business-related purposes. In some situations therefore, the respondent could not freely answer the questions. The physical and mental status of the respondent also at times resulted in error as respondents varied in enthusiasm and participation depending on their mood. Respondent as an Error: This kind of error results due to both non-response as well as inaccurate perception with regard to a specific concept or construct of a questionnaire. In this research, at times the respondents were reluctant to provide extreme positive or negative views and preferred to reside in the neutral area. This error of neutrality was somewhat checked as most of the scales were in four-point scale. In addition to this, there have been some cases where there were respondents who claimed that they knew a lot about Banglalion; but during the course of the interview this proved to be wrong. The respondents views then tend to be misleading. Measurer as an Error: Such error, however, happened in the pre-testing phase of the report. The very theme of the report was new to the members; hence much-desired queries and information could not be communicated with
47

the respondents. This however, was rectified once full-fledged interviewing started for the final survey. It must however be mentioned that there was no case of the instrument, meaning questionnaire, as the source of error. The final questionnaire was designed in such a way that there was least scope for instrument as an error.

6.1.6 Limitations
Critical Sampling Unit
One of the primary limitations of this research was that the sampling unit was business entities not individuals. Among the business entities, top managementnamely directors, managing directors, were some of the respondents. These individuals tend to be very busy persons and doing a research on such respondents does possess certain limitations.

Sharing of information
The business units were not willing to share information on certain cases e.g. commission and buffer. because, these are companies personal secrets and they dont want to share it to the outsiders that is why information are not shared to the individuals of Bangladesh

Chapter 7 RECOMMENDATION AND CONCLUSION

52

Solution of human resource problem *After recruitment of employee, a company should provide them three to six month training to learn the technical work to perform the technical job such as the job of sales, marketing, finance, Network Operations etc. The company should provide money to its employee to develop' communication skills to communicate with customers. Instead of full autocracy or democracy, the employers of Banglalion should show lenient view in all aspects so that they get motivated to work. Employee pay structure should be consistent with the employee. work pressure, in order to stop their tendency to switch job. Company should introduce service bonus or service benefit in order to encourage and motivate their employee. Solution of the problems of Infrastructure: The only remedy to develop this scenario is to strengthen their infrastructure through combined effort of both government and non-government for proper support and facilities. Government should give license to the ISP 3rd generation communication system to develop the infrastructure. Encourage people to develop industry such as modems, wires and other supporting materials treated as backward linkage industry of ISP by make short term or long term contract of taking goods so that ISP and the telecommunication industry do not have to import those at higher price or the local supply can the fulfill the required demand of the industry. Company owned accessory supplier can also the developed to maintain quality or on time delivery. Solution of Marketing problems: ISP and the telecommunication companies should be more careful and attentive in monitoring the production of the internet services so that production goes on schedule and any unwanted occurrence such as bandwidth blockage for the ISP provider cannot occurs. They should ensure that they have all the resources for ISP services one stop solutions. They should start marketing through trade fair. They should start marketing through internet, billboards and TVC.

Conclusion
I have completed the internship in the Banglalion Communication Ltd. It was an excellent opportunity to get some idea about a specific world. Theres huge gap between studying a particular discipline and implementing it in the particular field. Everything was not according to the books. As per observed that the organization run their business smoothly. They have to face some problems with the working environment of this organization. I think the training and development process or system was not sufficient. This company management stuff at the operating level officers has not independent decision making authority. The organizations employees dont get adequate transport facilities or any provision for entertainment allowance. The company does not provide meals to the overtime workers. The salary of the provisionary workers is not good enough. But they are very conscious In the process of employees recruitment the organization give emphasis on educational level. They give emphasis on the skills of employee. Top management is willing to give employees salary in the due time. Thats why employee turnover rate is not too high. After evaluating every answer, I have identified some hypothesis regarding the Banglalion Communications Ltd sales division: H1: Working environment is wonderful throughout the organization. H2: The communication gap between the top level management, Seller and buyers should reduce. H3: The organization is paying well salary to the deserving employees.

Majority of customers are satisfied with brand image and product pricing. Network connectivity has a also positive effect on satisfaction via brand image. However customer care service has a impact on the customer satisfaction.To get the initial customers who will spread the world how wonderful the organization is, there will have to be initial advertising. One important area is employee relations and training. If employees are disgruntled, under trained or underpaid, they will never interact in a positive approach with customers and all of the knowledge and good intentions are for nothing. There is a simple rule. If customer does not know about the product then the will not purchase that product. For better business Banglalion Communications Ltd must concentrate on advertisement.
