  • Interface closely with network and test teams to ensure that all system level performance and physical interface requirements are met
  • Review requirement documents; provide engineering oversight (in design, prototyping and testing phases) for development efforts
  • Lead vendor and linefit (OEM system installation) teleconferences.
