Network/Telecommunications Engineering

‚ÄčThis is the network and telephony engineering team which designs the state IT network.¬† The state IT network provides the ability to access the internet, VPN into the network from remote locations, answer the phone on your desk/desktop, and share information easily with peers in your agency as well as other agencies. This may sound like a simplistic task until you take into account the magnitude of the network. The state's network consists of 30,000+ users who utilize thousands of phone lines and over 1,500 data circuits all of which are connected through nearly 5,000 network devices.
