NOC Operator

I would like to show my interest and admiration in joining a Technical environment of your stature; I’m an Electrical Engineer/Technician Graduate from Central University of Technology with NOC experience on transmission equipment such as DWDM and SDH.As a NOC Operator or Surveillance Technician my task was to provide first-line monitoring of network systems or alarms using Telecommunications Network Management Systems (TNMS) that is to detect emergency cases or localize fault. In most cases fault traced or localized is on the single mode fibre which is used for long distances as well as multimode fibre which is used for short distances.

More over and above one must see to it that the trouble tickets are initiated and updated. Informing affected customers on status and progress of the fault at hand. Acquired theoretical knowledge on the following devices: OTDR, Power meter, Attenuator, Amplifier and lastly but certainly not least transponder. OTDR – optical time domain reflect meter which detects fiber breaks and micro bends which can affects the signals, Power meter used to check the power levels on the fiber and Light source to check the laser signal on fiber, Attenuator decreases power at or to certain levels, Amplifier which gives power to signal and transponder which converts lights to frequency. Surveillance technician also provide technical support to field staff and ensuring that customers service level agreement is met accordingly.
