Verizon is looking for a solid Transport Engineer/Coordinator to support their large Build Plans on their wireless team. This will include initiatives such as CBAND (Spectrum Upgrades), SNAP (Equipment swaps), and overall BAU work (Business as Usual). While a technical background helps, this role is really a lot more coordination to include ASR processing and order with TELCO Vendors across the footprint. This would include creating assignments, building pathways, and coordinating with various internal and external teams through the finish. This role specifically is a cross between the transport team and the equipment engineers to support on the review of RFDS, Cross reference with the Work Order, then upload and communication via Zing (Similar to a fulcrum but pretty much a workflow that allows picture/descriptions.) Very high volume and a lot of tedious work. On the more technical side (which you do not 100% need) it could look like the below: if you want to be cross utilized. The position requires involvement throughout the life cycle of a service order including the design and material procurement. The Engineer will utilize TIRKS, Verizon Capacity Creation Process (CCP) system, vSAP, and other internal systems to document all technical solutions and ensure a timely deployment of service. • Prior Verizon Experience highly preferred o Any experience with the below Verizon systems TIRKS, CCP, vSAP, etc. • Circuit provisioning experience o Provisioning of all service orders including but not limited to TDM (T1/T3), Ethernet and Dark Fiber services • Strong knowledge of fiber SONET Transport network o Experience with: Tellabs, Alcatel Lucent, Adtran, Fujitsu, Ciena, Cisco gear o Understand the routing of circuits Managing design requirements for circuit additions, upgrades, outside moves, repairs & rearrangements o They will determine the routing of high capacity special services over the fiber (T3) and copper (T1) networks They will build the design from the CO to the Customer Prem using TIRKS (shows everything from fiber to equipment to available ports) Determine best path and if there is no path – define and recommend a HUB or alternative Fiber to utilize • Equipment engineering / Order Material Management experience o Will be managing multiple capacity creation requests for new hardware deployments, reconfigurations, decommissions, and First Office Application (FOA) projects • Basic knowledge/experience of/with Outside Plant (OSP) Engineering practices o Ideally comes from this background in past This position requires a considerable amount of experience in transport engineering, significant project management experience, and strong problem solving, analytical, and organizational skills to develop a monthly interconnect implementation plan that supports macro, in-building, small cell, self-perform/third party, ODAS, SNAP(Samsung), LS6, 5G, CRAN, VRAN and MEC build targets. The transport team is responsible for creating, designing and issuing CIQs(IP/Ports assignments) and engineering new cells, trunks, cell and switch growth, circuit ordering and carrier additions. This position must understand Verizon Telecom products such as Native Ethernet, VZON, TLS and Dark Fiber as well as Verizon’s IOF and OSP Provisioning process. You will be responsible for a large quantity of projects where the best solutions must be evaluated and activities correlated between multiple engineers and/or workgroups. Your responsibilities will include but may not be limited to: • Place circuit orders with Local Exchange Carriers for a variety of telco services (i.e. dark fiber, EOS, EBH, and TLS) • Complete documentation of transport circuits and paths using XNG/Granite/FUZE CND • Track order status and escalate as required to ensure timely completion • Plan, design and implement the latest transport technologies in support of our 5G network rollout • Attend frequent project update meetings to present current status of pending and ongoing projects • Manage vendors to meet targeted network milestones and turn-up dates • Collaborate with engineers of different disciplines to deliver on the best transport solution • Create and develop trackers via FUZE to enhance data integrity, prioritization, and work flow • Work with other groups' forecasts to ensure equipment growth projects meet expectant demands in support of the Company’s objectives
