    Upgraded campus HFC/RF plant to prisma optics and GAINMAKER 1gHz fiber nodes and amps
    Gutted and rewired the HeadEnd forward/reverse RF path on the Campus HFC plant. Replaced all passive and active
       components with the latest signal manager products from Atlanta
    Architected and deployed a fully automated “store and forward” video system to record IPTV streams to disk and push the
       video to remote clients in regional offices, providing much needed content to remote offices for test and development
    Vastly expanded original documentation set to comprehensively describe all lab systems, including physical and logical
       layers: wiring drawings, broadcaster contact sheets, sat receiver setup configs, sat dish farm, IP networks, multicast
       streaming information etc
