Network Coverage Area

There are a lot of projects going on in the AT&T Network especially in the wireless group which we called AT&T Mobility. AT&T Mobility is huge in terms of wireless subscribers. As of this date there are 62M subscribers nationwide covering four (4) regions/markets, namely: North East, South East, Central, and West. Below is the coverage area nationwide including Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico/US Virgin Islands.

My Region

The region where I belong is the West Region/Market which includes 12 states, namely: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. Tucson, AZ where the MSC is located and where I do my work.

Since I join the company all of the task of project supervision and overseeing vendor/contractors were assigned to me. Most of the projects are related to expansion of the network, upgrades on both software and hardware, local support, and coordination with vendor on site survey and inspection. The process of managing a project or what we call Change Request (CR) has different steps that must be undertaken to adhere to the AT&T standards.
