What Does a Computer Systems Technician Do?
A Computer Systems Technician (CST) is responsible for setting up Internet connections, establishing different types of networks like LAN (local area network) or WAN (wide area network) for bigger organizations and connecting them. CSTs are also responsible for establishing and keeping routers and servers functioning and continuing to provide support for the company. They ensure systems are functioning and when systems malfunction, they have to find solutions quickly without paralyzing the other computers and equipment in the network. They may also provide help and advice to people and organizations using computer software or equipment.
