Functie omschrijving

You are planned this week for the early shift. You start at 07.30 and you are responsible this week for all incoming tickets and alerts. You get a nice cup of freshly ground coffee at our pantry and you start your laptop. The monitor showing PRTG shows multiple alerts from the EMEA and ASPAC region. You immediately check the EMEA alerts and give a heads up to our colleague in Singapore to check the alerts for ASPAC. Inspecting the logs of the switches and using FortiSiem to analyze the syslog messages, you noticed a possible power outage at the terminal. You call the terminals Maintenance department and they confirm there is a power outage. You log the information in the ticket in Service-Now and you put a message on our Outage Portal to update all users in that terminal.

That was a flying start of the day!

The rest of the day you go through your ticket overview and update those tickets that require attention.

In the afternoon you have scheduled an upgrade of the firewall cluster. You prepared this change according to our Change Management process and it was approved.

After the upgrade, you noticed the work instruction regarding upgrading firewalls is off and you correct the instruction and send an update to the team.

Before the day is over, you check the access procedure for the terminal you want to visit tomorrow, as there is a switch with a possible faulty fiber connection.
