The primary responsibility of LAN/WAN Engineer is to have the network in a functional mode with zero downtime round the clock. They make use of suitable data communication modules and helps the user and company network without any interruptions. Unlike before LAN/WAN engineers are implementing more of fiber optic technology instead of the cable network.
Fiber optic network can withhold a large amount of data in comparison to cable the network.
The LAN and WAN Engineers devote a right amount of time to analyze network data to ensure that the network is functional and runs well during the peak demand period. Engineers look into the usage of network and its security. The access rights of a particular network are monitored for safety reasons so that to avoid any network infection.
They should maintain the network logs for LAN and WAN to be prepared in case of any problem arises then it can be fixed.
Network engineers also document network activities so that if problems do arise, information is available to use for fixing them. They also take care for back up data of network logs including browser history.
LAN/WAN Technician are also called as a network engineer and are accountable for increasing and installing exceptional designs, which line up the primary technology constituents of LAN, WAN, security, VoIP, and collaboration to allow strategic business resourcefulness, support
