I guess I should give credit where credit is due. My boss has done an excellent job involving me in cool projects. I thought it might be time to highlight a few of these projects.
NAED Navigator 2013 Presenter:
Last week I got to be a presenter at National Academies of Emergency Dispatch’s (NAED) Annual Navigator Conference. I did a presentation with a coworker entitled 5 Star Training on a Dime Budget. You can read more about it at my resume website.
We were finally recognized by the media for our part in revolutionizing the 9-1-1 call delivery system. We have spent much of the last year planning, purchasing, upgrading and testing a new 9-1-1 phone system that is completely delivered via IP. Tomorrow we bring up another key node on this network, Unified Police Department.
Two Way 300-500 MB Microwave Data Connection
For the last 18 months I have been able to participate in the creation of a dual loop microwave network. In an effort to lower costs and implement better methods of IP Phone and IP Radio delivery to agencies in Salt Lake County, a dual loop connection between 6 sites is being created. We spent a week doing hands on training that helped us configure, MPLS, OSPF, COS, and VLAN’s. We hope to finish configuring and deploy these units really soon.
