Solution engineers shall work with support staff, to develop the detailed network design. The solution engineers shall coordinate the procurement and/or call order of solution specific network assets. Provide technical engineering support for problems encountered during the operations and maintenance of the network and all ancillary equipment and software. Analyze data retrieved from the network to determine utilization of the network and recommend changes to maintain network efficiency, performance, and service availability. Will have an ability and access and authority for installing, configuring, monitoring, or troubleshooting the security monitoring functions of information systems/networks (e.g., network/system analyzers; intrusion detection software; firewalls) or in performance of cyber/network defense operations.

    Perform future strategic engineering and technology refreshes to support the CLOB. Engineer, test, install, integrate, and support the complex troubleshooting using logs and packet analysis. Support the existing communications infrastructure, develop, and implement strategies to meet future requirements. Support the current and future design. Several examples of the products are Cisco Nexus, Cisco ASR, Juniper SRX, F5 BigIP, InfoBlox and, A10 load balancers.

    Complete the following tasks:

    • Engineer and document enterprise network architectural changes in response to policies, security or customer requirements. Documentation shall include any cost estimates based on either procurement or capacity services call orders.
    • Prepare briefings for leadership on emerging technologies, requirements, strategic roadmap, and various topic areas.
    • Ensure compliance with Ports, Protocols, and Services Management (PPSM)
    • Engineer proxy capabilities required by customers.
    • Evaluate and engineer network solutions based upon customers’ requirements.
    • Engineer and deploy an IPv6 network in accordance with DoD directives.
    • Attend meetings with customers to collect information for designing network changes and to provide network architecture standards.
    • Prepare technical documentation to include technical white papers, instructional, engineering solutions, implementation guides, and whitepapers documenting infrastructure devices and standards.
    • Engineer highly available network infrastructure capable of meeting strict uptime requirements.

    Design, test, install, integrate, and support migration. Migrate future customer processing requirements into the processing environment in a manner consistent with present practices. Migration support shall conform to the physical infrastructure, logical infrastructure, and security configurations such as access control lists and deny by default, and shall be integrated with the existing IA network. Ensure that all DoD polices and directives followed. Support unclassified networks and classified networks at the secret, top secret, and/or top-secret special compartmented information networks and systems such as NIPRNET, SIPRNET, and JWICS.

    Support migration of Data Replication (Data Rep) network to DoDIN IP Transport Provider Edge (IP-TPE).network and redesign of Data Rep VPN. The current data replication solution meets requirements with multiple point-to-point circuits that are provisioned specifically for that requirement. When a new requirement is received for replication between two sites, provision a new point-to-point circuit. The number of devices replicating is being greatly increased, as well as, the amount of data being replicated and the number of sites replicating. Therefore, storage replication capacity in the number of connections, sites capable of replicating, and increased bandwidth requirements shall be expanded in order to meet existing and future customer has needs, as well as, supporting organizational goals. As replication is primarily to support disaster recovery, replication shall be reliable and flexible.

    Provide engineering and communication support to establish a routed replication network using an MPLS layer3 VPN that can meet the requirements outlined above and can be provisioned to the 18 sites currently on the current Data Center replication network. Provide engineering and communication support to provision the replication network at the CONUS data centers and migrate from the point-to-point circuits between these data centers to the replication network. Provide engineering and communication support to investigate and migrate the data center communication and replication network to IPT-PE network. Migrate point-to-point circuits to a VPN service on IPT-PE and decommission all point-to-point physical circuits. Prepare technical documentation to include technical white papers, instructional, engineering solutions, and implementation guides. Develop engineering documentation, implementation guides, and migration strategies in support of the blurring effort. Support Technical Discussion/Meetings for solutions and modifications. Participate in site survey teams to assist in gathering and refining information on hardware, software, and communications equipment for solutions and modifications. Coordinate with other members to develop a system design that is consistent with our standard architecture.

    Perform any research necessary to develop call orders and cost estimates for the implementation of solutions and modifications. Develop device configurations and changes as necessary.

    Develop configuration changes to existing network monitoring and sensing systems to set alerts and thresholds necessary for migrations of applications to different infrastructure. Support test plan development and testing efforts.

    Support ASIs necessary for implementations and migrations. This support may include ASI documentation support, coordination with mission partners, participation during the actual migration, and troubleshooting effort. Support device decommissioning.
