ISP Technicians install, test, boost, maintain, and fix various telecommunications equipment, such as satellite, voice, data, and network, at telecom sites, Carrier POPs, and companies’ facilities, among others. They resolve issues promptly by logging into switches and by following instructions from the networks operation center (NOC) or a senior engineer. These technicians need to see to it that network standards and processes are developed and applied. They will have to submit regular reports to their reporting heads on empty ports.
A lot of their work focuses on different types of cabling, and they’re trained to remove, fix, detect, mark, and splice cables together. They will also identify any cabling issues, and perform regular maintenance checks to ensure everything continues to run smoothly. Modern business infrastructures are highly dependent on their cabling networks, which makes the job of an ISP Technician all the more important. With them on-hand, any faults can be quickly rectified so there are limited downtimes.
This is where ISP Technicians come into play as their wide range of skills makes them the perfect candidate for any job relating to telecommunication issues.
Technicians will need to work flexible hours. Importantly, they must possess excellent written and verbal communication skills.
They should be prepared to work manually, which would involve stooping, crawling, bending at the waist and knees, climbing towers, lifting weights of up to 50 pounds, standing for long periods of time, working in all types of weather conditions, etc.
