Microwave Point to Point Radio – Planned, designed and coordinated conversion of analog microwave to digital DS3 system. Conversion was carried out with 100 paths of microwave involved. Designed and planned conversion of 250 analog circuits to digital and grew system to 1700 DS0 and DS1 circuits. Designed and planned construction work to begin the migration of the DS3 microwave system to an IP packet based system. Implemented Cisco ASR routers at backbone locations in a ring configuration for redundancy with plans to convert all TDM based DS0 and DS1 circuits to IP/Ethernet traffic running on a MPLS WAN system.
Microwave Channelization - Developed database to track allocation of circuits (DS0, DS1 & DS3) on microwave and fiber optic systems. Database was used for planning, maintenance and cost allocation purposes.
Fiber Optics – Designed and implemented short range fiber optic extensions of microwave systems within company facilities.

Site Facilities - Directed activities to design, build and upgrade communications facilities at approximately 75 mountain top and stub location facilities. Work consisted of turnkey design, construction and management of site facilities. Mountain top sites were designed for severe weather conditions, standby battery systems and 30 day backup generator capacity. Towers ranged from 20’ to 500’. Communication buildings ranged from 8’ by 8’ to 20’ by 60’. Design activities included site selection, procurement of property and obtaining all necessary construction permits.
Two-way Radio and Paging – Oversaw design work to convert 150 Mhz conventional two-way radio system to an 800 Mhz SMR trunked two-way radio system with telephone interconnect capabilities, 22 repeater sites and 1200 mobiles. Designed and planned conversion of remaining 150 Mhz radio frequencies to build a state wide paging system.
Telephones – Designed and implemented in house telephone systems consisting of eleven Nortel PBX’s with 3000 extensions. Began design work to migrate existing TDM based telephone system to VoIP. Design plan included working with IT department to insure QOS priority for phone calls.
