ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

Developed and Maintained a Large Automated Test Platform
Contributed to the development and maintenance of a large test suite for router testing. Based on Linux/Tcl/Expect, with some Perl and Python, this test system ran a nightly test consisting of over 500 test scripts, organized into 34 test suites, each dedicated to a particular router protocol or function. Each suite configured a different network topology consisting of routers (Cisco, Juniper), switches (Extreme, Cisco), and traffic generators (Spirent, Ixia). I became the owner of this system, scheduled its nightly runs and analyzed/debugged results each morning. I also moved this entire system twice to different physical platforms, one remotely from Raleigh for Boulder.

Coordinated Router Testing between Stockholm/Raleigh
Located in Stockholm for seven weeks to improve communication and coordinate problem resolution between Raleigh ISER (Integrated Site Edge Router) test group and Stockholm's IS (Integrated Site) I&V group. What was originally a two week trip evolved into seven because of the significant improvement of communication due to my work there.

Directed a Group of Five Interns in the Automation of Function Test for Router Product
While executing manual function testing on a number of areas, I simultaneously directed a group of five interns in the automation of Function Test for a router product, covering DiffServ, OSPF, IPV6 and other functional areas. Tcl and Expect were the main tools used.

Link Aggregation (LAG) (802.3ad) Protocol Development
Designed and implemented an 802.3ad protocol module for an Ethernet Access platform. This included the maintenance of interface layers above the aggregated link, such as IP and MPLS.

Windows NDIS Miniport Driver for ADSL NIC
Project leader for the development of an NDIS 5.0 Miniport for an ADSL NIC, supporting Native ATM and RFC1483. Directed the development of the peripheral utilities supporting the NIC, including the GUI diagnostics and the Install/Uninstall application.
