Wireless network vendors are often called “network architects” because of their role in building and operating wireless networks.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the basics of what a network architect does.
But before you get started, let’s first get a few things out of the way: A network architect is a person who designates a network to operate as a wireless service, and he or she performs a series of tasks that can help a wireless carrier find and connect customers to wireless networks (or other wireless networks) within a wireless provider’s network.
In addition, network architects are often responsible for managing the wireless networks that are built by wireless carriers.
Network architects also can be called “hosts,” “subscriber” or “servicer.”
These names refer to the different roles that network architects perform within a particular wireless network.
A network engineer, for example, might build a wireless-only network or a wireless router for a company.
Network Architects have been doing network building for years, but the role has only recently gained wider visibility.
Now, the role of network architects is being increasingly seen in the public sector, and they’re gaining more and more importance as more wireless providers expand their wireless networks to include additional networks.
We’ll start with the basics.
Network architecture is a complex technical process that involves multiple steps, from building the wireless network to building the hardware to configuring the network.
There are different types of network architecture, including wired and wireless networks and routers.
Network architects also must be able to identify the networks that they want to manage and how to identify them.
Network Architects are also responsible for identifying network security vulnerabilities that may impact the availability of wireless networks in the wireless provider network.
Network engineers build the wireless router that will serve a wireless customer, and network architects can perform other tasks, including configuring wireless routers, troubleshooting network vulnerabilities, and managing network traffic.
Network Architect’s are responsible for configuring, connecting, and troubleshooting wireless networks within the wireless carrier’s network network.
Network engineers are also required to make sure the wireless routers that are installed in the network are working properly.
Network routers connect a wireless device to a wireless signal.
The signal that a wireless consumer or consumer-class wireless device receives from a wireless tower can include wireless signals and other information.
Wireless devices and wireless towers are connected by a cable that runs from the device to the tower.
Wireless network equipment and devices that connect to the wireless tower include a wireless radio, wireless router, and a wireless antenna.
The Wireless Network Engineering Institute (WNEI) has a directory of wireless network designers in the United States.
The directory has information on the various types of networks and networks architect, including the role that a network designer plays in the design of wireless networking.
