Strikes on Telecom Towers
The New York Times article (last revised on April 11, 2020) reports more than thirty acts of vandalism and arson on cell towers and other telecommunication equipment have taken place in Britain this month. Worse still, there have been more than eighty incidents reported in which telecom technicians have been personally harassed while on the job. The Effect on Engineers As reported in The Guardian, it’s gotten to the point that technicians installing cable-based broadband, which has nothing to do with cell service, let alone 5G specifically, are also taking the heat. In an incredible turn of events, broadband personnel have begun publishing pleas on the anti-5G Facebook pages to be left in peace as they work.
So for those telecoms engineers who are ready to support with 5G, what jobs are available right now?Mark concludes,“We are currently seeing demand for technical specialists such as; RF SON engineers, small cells engineers, SDN/NFV, cloud and IoT engineers and architects, orchestration engineers, 5G RF antenna researchers, and 5G algorithm experts.”
“5G will also rely heavily on fibre so there will be on-going demand for fibre skilled engineers such as network engineers, architects, planners, service delivery managers, project managers and programme managers.”As we edge closer to 5G deployments, the war for 5G talent required for building the next generation of fixed and mobile networks will intensify. If you’re looking to upskill to become a 5G ready telecoms engineer, there will never be a better time to do so. More info: it administrator
