What you’ll be doing...

The Transport Engineer (TE) team takes high-level architecture guidelines from the Planning organization, as well as standard deployment guidelines for the transport electronics, and develops market-level deployment plans for the transport network. These deployment plans incorporate requirements that will support Verizon access enterprise customers, long distance traffic, and back-haul for wireless cell sites and hubs. After initial transport networks are deployed in various markets, the TE team will be responsible for:

  • Designing and initiating additional electronic deployments to continue to expand the footprint in these markets and to maintain healthy backbone capacity.
  • Determining where electronics are needed and for identifying what type of transport box is appropriate (small, medium, large).
  • Working closely with the planning organization, the Inside Plant engineering organization, the outside plant engineering organization, the power/space/cooling organization, and operations.
  • Market plans will be the basis for developing multi-year annual capital budget plans, and must be detailed enough to justify the capital requests.
  • Creating individual capital funding requests (AFEs - Authorization for Expenditure) and issues engineering capacity creation requests (CCRs) to initiate US domestic network transport builds.
  • Deploying new transport technology in major sales cities and eventually tying the technology into existing ultra-long-haul electronics, for a seamless Access and LD network.
