||RS Communications Office Manager
Although the Broadband Department operates mostly during regular business hours,
the Operations Manager (Tom Jones) is on call
24 hours a day 7 days a week (every day). It is essential to keep the
network running. If an essential part of the network goes down at 2 AM any
day of the week, it must be brought back into service. The same type of
24x7 reliability you expect from your phone or electrical utility is the same
reliability the Broadband Operations department will drive to provide.
