Network Optimization (Westfields)
The network optimization engineers monitor/analyze multiple customer WAN and LAN networks to ensure network bandwidth and port capacity to meet customer metrics. Engineers will support the various service owners on current network configuration and future upgrades. Provides support to projects that involve networks. Participate in new network configurations and integration into existing networks to maintain optimal performance.
Develops and implements methodologies for analysis, documentation, and reporting on the various networks. Provides support in the translation of business requirements into telecommunications (e.g., LAN, MAN, WAN, Voice and Video) requirements, designs and orders.
• Analyze the current performance of systems and networks
• Prepare technical proposals for presentation to the NRO's engineering review boards for adding new technologies to the network.
• Review user requests for upgrades or additions to the network to eliminate impact on network performance, and improve survivability, and provide feedback to the network engineers.
• Use complex network analysis tools to identify and predict problems in the network and aid in the post-mortem analysis of network anomalies.
• Generate reports and data required by Program Team to manage complex networks
• Coordinate with configuration management and implementation teams.
• Analyze network characteristics (e.g., traffic, connect time, transmission speeds, packet sizes, and throughput); recommend procurement, removals, and modifications to network components.
• Assess and document current site network configuration and user requirements.
