Duration: May 2003 – Aug 2014
Infrastructure Design Engineer; designing back-bone internet, voice, data, SONET base circuits
Network Facility Engineer; reconfiguration and re-mapping of our back-bone networks, nationwide.
Provisioning Network Analyst; most duties as a PNA consisted of building, configuration and testing of circuit paths through existing network elements. Media types; Electrical, Optical and TDM transmissions.
DS1 Enhance 911 network designs I have done. The Public Safety Answering Point, known as PSAP, have data circuits which route the 911 callers location information from the data base, while the class 5 switch provides the audio cut-through from the 911 caller to the PSAP center or call dispatch location. The DS1 circuit carrying the E911 information can also ride a DS3 to a designated multiplexer then to the PSAP call center.
