Release 1

This version released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 5.0.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to cut over new or upgraded systems and equipment on customer premises. This may include indoor or outdoor installations of communications applications in telephony, broadband, data, video, radio frequency (RF) equipment, security and computer networks, including local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs) and multimedia systems.

It applies to telecommunications trade workers carrying out new installations or upgrades to domestic, commercial or industrial systems and equipment at customer premises.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory and certification requirements apply to telecommunications systems. Work functions in the occupational areas where this unit may be used are subject to regulatory requirements. All customer cabling work in the telecommunications, fire, security and data industries must be performed by a registered cabler. All cablers are required to register with an Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) accredited registrar. Refer to the ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Companion Volume Implementation Guide or the relevant regulator for specific guidance on requirements.

Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Prepare system and equipment cut over

1.1 Scope work by obtaining project plan from appropriate personnel and arrange for site access according to security arrangements

1.2 Notify appropriate personnel of identified worksite hazards

1.3 Determine cable route, and type of cable and equipment required from project plan, and identify and avoid other services

1.4 Obtain plant, tools, safety equipment and materials to perform tasks safely and efficiently

1.5 Prepare implementation plan with cut over tasks based on identified nature of job, and seek customer approval

1.6 Notify customer and network carrier of proposed cut over details and arrange for customer representation and agreement

2. Cut over system or equipment into service

2.1 Perform cut over tasks and connect network facilities according to approved plan

2.2 Test all cable connections, equipment and facilities according to technical manuals and specifications

2.3 Evaluate test results to ensure proper system operation and performance, and rectify as required

3. Complete project documentation

3.1 Record test results for future reference, complete reports on cut over installation and design amendments according to enterprise requirements

3.2 Recover obsolete materials and equipment, and return to customer or appropriate point for disposal

3.3 Restore siteaccording to enterprise or approving authority requirements and customer satisfaction

3.4 Notify appropriate personnel of job completion and obtain sign-off
