IT PROJECT MANAGER

I am a Network Professional working with multiple Projects (Circuit Orders), managing the LIFE CYCLE of each Project Install Date. Worked with PROVISIONING Group, FE ( to install the Network Hardware and Software ), while updating Management with the status of circuit for 9 years. Experience reading, and installing SOFTWARE for, GRANITE DESIGN, and all NEW WAN Circuits such as T1, T3, ATM, IMA, OC3, OC12, OC48 and ESM (Embedded Syslog Manager). Used REMEDY via the BMC SOFTWARE PLATFORM for monitoring the WAN CIRCUITS. Any alarms on a circuit would cause NETCOOL to generate a TICKET for that circuit so a TECH can TEST that circuit with the HEKIMIAN REACT software via the LUCENT ALCATEL SWITCHES. Determined CISCO ROUTERS ASR9000 equipment and software problems such as IP Addresses, DLCI, bandwidth can be checked with the LIM's MODULE as needed. Work with WTS, and CTS trouble tickets created by NETCOOL, and VENDORS such as LUCENT, ERICSSON, and SIEMENS. BMC SOFTWARE PLATFORM used REMEDY REACT for MONITORING and TESTING all T1’s IN-TRUSIVELY and NON-INTRUSIVELY. Pulled PM’s on T3's as needed. Worked with TIRKS, and DACS OSS database, MySQL and ORACLE and other software to verify the circuit Provisioning information. (OSS) an operational support system is a set of programs that is used to enable communications service provider monitor, control, analyze and manage the network. Reported circuit status to Management, Customer, and Technician. Forward new circuit information to Billing Department as needed. In the HP, IMC - HPE's NETCOOL management tools, and NMS Tool for monitoring the physical networks. Extensive experience with WTS, CTS, AOTS, IWOS, Granite 7.1/webXng, ASR and Bill Track Pro.
