Makes recommendations, if needed, on test and evaluation strategies for major systems installations.
PRIMARY DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The Systems Integrator analyses, designs, tests, and evaluates systems such as local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), the Internet, intranets, and other data communications systems ranging from a connection between two offices in the same building to distributed networks, voice mail, and e-mail systems of a large organization. Performs network modeling, analysis, and planning including research related products and make necessary hardware and software recommendations.
Installs, configures, and supports an organization's local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN), and Internet system or a segment of a network system. Maintains network hardware and software. Monitors network to ensure network availability to all system users and perform necessary maintenance to support network availability. May supervise other network support and client server specialists and plan, coordinate, and implement network security measures.
Ensures that adequate and appropriate planning is provided for hardware and communications for facilities. Prepares engineering plans and site installation technical design packages. Provides coordination in the analysis, acquisition and installation of hardware and software. Manages efforts of a staff engaged in facility additions, moves or changes including analysis, telecommunications (LAN, WAN, voice, video) planning, cabling, IT requirements, etc. Performs site surveys. Assesses and documents current site network configuration and user requirements.
Telecommunications specialists focus on the interaction between computer and communications equipment. These workers design voice and data communication systems, supervise the installation of the systems, and provide maintenance and other services to clients after the systems are installed.
