ASD maintains and operates a large number of diverse and complex systems which all rely heavily on an extensive network of structured data cabling dispersed through multiple buildings within the Canberra region. The cabling systems are mainly comprised of fibre-optic cabling with a limited amount of copper infrastructure scattered throughout. The mission of the Network Infrastructure Team is to manage the infrastructure associated with systems at different security classifications in accordance with security manuals, internal policies and industry standards.
As part of a team of subject matter experts on structured cabling and infrastructure, you will be required to remain abreast of current industry best practices in order to advise and inform customers and projects on the most appropriate approach to their cabling requirements. Within the Infrastructure Team, you will:
liaise with customers to ascertain their cabling requirements
patch fibre and copper cable paths to ensure systems will operate within the specifications of the connection medium
plan and implement upgrades to the current infrastructure to ensure it meets future requirements
many other activities associated with the maintenance and upkeep of all data cabling systems within the organisation.
The successful applicant will have a comprehensive understanding of modern structured cabling system with an emphasis on legacy and modern fibre-optic mediums. A well-grounded understanding of network topology and the functionality of modern network devices is desirable. Applicants will be given the opportunity to advance their skills in infrastructure support and networking technology through on-the-job training, the attendance of relevant industry courses and conferences and a strong mentoring program.
