KO-KNET review of Cable and Cellular Network facilities and connections

Brian Beaton, KO-KNET Coordinator

Jamie Ray, KO-KNET Technician and Pat Smith (KPE Electrical - former DMTS Network Manager) are travelling the winter roads to complete a site survey of the First Nation Cell Building, tower and the Cable Headend facilities and equipment. Their trip started this past Sat (Feb 16). They will be conducting a "drive test" to determine cell signal strength, meeting with the First Nation technician and completing an inventory with pictures of the sites in your community. A final report with recommendations on work to be completed will be shared with the local technician as well as the Chief and Council about the First Nation telecom network and facilities. See the attachment for a copy of the letter sent to each of the First Nation Administration office.


Brian Beaton, KO-KNET Coordinator

Please post, review and share the attached job posting for the KO-KNET Coordinator position that is being distributed and posted in the KO First Nations and in the KO offices in Thunder Bay, Dryden, Sioux Lookout and Balmertown. The deadline for this internal KO job posting is Feb 28. My last day at the KO-KNET office will be March 15. I am moving to Fredericton in April where I will be attending graduate school. At the last KO Chiefs' meeting Franz Seibel and I discussed the possibility of continuing to be part of KO as an associate researcher so I could continue supporting the great work that everyone is doing in the KO First Nations.
