Considered one of the most important IT professionals today, a Cisco Cable Communications Specialist can be found doing numerous tasks each day. From installing and configuring LAN and WAN systems, conducting training sessions in cloud-based technology, or working on special projects for a company or government agency, the variation of duties makes this one of today's most exciting and in-demand IT jobs.
Requiring knowledge of virtual private network connections, better known as VPN, a cable communications specialist analyzes and troubleshoots various issues associated with this area. Along with this, they configure and implement changes on Cisco 2 and Layer 3 switches, Cisco and Juniper routers, and work with engineers to design and deploy specialised network projects. Responsible for having extensive knowledge of Cisco Anyconnect and Security Endpoint systems, these specialists provide important remote support for clients needing to access their network via VPN. And since many clients today use cloud-based services, a cable communications specialist also develops and manages such databases as SQL Server. Finally, these specialists also occasionally create IT teams for special projects, help new employees by readying equipment and creating online accounts, and provide technical training on new systems.
