Test Engineers execute test cases for devices and network equipment. The work may include hands-on testing in the lab and/or field/drive testing verification. The scope of the tests will include RF, end-to-end performance, IOT, and special testing of specific device or network features and may vary for each test run. Application level testing will be significant as end-to-end network performance is critically important for final verification. Some drive testing may be needed to validate network performance against a golden set of devices. Testing will focus on data traffic.
