  • Manage upgrade and conversion of legacy PBX telephone systems to network VoIP systems, at IRC Remote Library sites, IRC North County Water Treatment Plant, IRC Central Waste-Water Treatment Plant, & new IRC North County Office building – Sebastian Corners project.
  • Continue to support and administer IRC multi-node corporate PBX Telephone systems county-wide. Review existing IRC PBX systems maintenance contracts due to ongoing developments and changes in the telecommunications industry. Introduce new and reliable improvements to current technology.
  • Continue to update fiber optic network documentation systems county-wide. Also updating IRC GIS systems with fiber optic network changes made, and correction of fiber systems information collected in the field. This work in coordination with IRC GIS Department.
  • Continue to research, develop, and submit for approval, increased revenue, & operational cost savings opportunities for Indian River County, in the fields of leased “dark” fiber optic network services, Wireless / Cellular Tower & DAS cellular matrix systems projects.
  • Continued work to convert IRC legacy PRI PBX Network voice communication links on the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network), to new IP-Based SIP Network Trunk voice communications links. IRC EOC site will be the first IRC PBX system site to deploy this new technology. This project will result in considerable cost savings to county telecommunications / voice systems operation.
  • Manage & supervise development of NexusWorx fiber optic network documentation system – project phase II. Continuation of project phase I, to document all IRC / IRC Fiber Consortium fiber assets throughout the county. Completion of this project will result in substantial cost savings to the county in OSP fiber contractor labor & design work.
