Scope of Position:
Corning is a market leader in Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) for indoor wireless coverage and capacity enhancement. With the explosive growth in wireless bandwidth demand (up to 100% CAGR) and shift to indoor usage ( 80%), there is a strong need for solutions that deliver flexible and scalable wireless services to the enterprise and carrier marketplace. DAS continues to be the dominant method of delivering coverage and capacity inside of buildings but small cells, which can include all types of distributed radio sources, are emerging as important tools in the delivery of network capacity. We believe that the lines are blurring between all of these technologies and they will each be an important part of future networks. We are seeking a digital DAS, C-RAN, small cell industry veteran, with both business development and network technology credentials, to help develop and execute our technology strategy. The role reports to the VP, Commercial Technology.
Day to Day Responsibilities:
Provide significant leadership in refining and executing a strategy integrating digital technology and RAN convergence with our wireless enablement platform. Provide Subject Matter Expertise (SME) on Radio Access Network (RAN) and Small Cell technologies with emphasis on networking and digital processes (as opposed to RF) including features, functionality, protocols, core interfaces, and interoperability standards, etc. Act as the SME regarding the ecosystem of industry participants including OEMs, chipset vendors, software vendors, etc. and will be responsible for facilitating business development activities with the industry. Be responsible for working with our Chief Architect and the technology and product management organizations to finalize our differentiated and value added strategy, roadmap and product concepts; to identify, develop, and execute industry partnerships to prove concepts and to ultimately develop final solution(s). Keep abreast of industry and academic trends to anticipate Cornings needs in digital networking and radios. Represent Corning externally via presentations at conferences and other industry events.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
