Expert level knowledge of end2end, from a radio base station, throughout core/internet into and within DC networking and services on top.
Early adopter, and implementer of the technologies that have proven rather successful later on - among others: IP FastReroute, BGP EVPN, Segment Routing and ecosystem around, YANG data models, dynamic container routing, Hybrid SDN approach, Intent driven programmable networking, Radio and Transport networks integration, Network Slicing.
Being on both, Service Provider and vendor sides I can analyze a product or a solution from either prospective: quality of engineering and complexity, product viability, usability and adaptability to operational practices.
Proven track record of building and managing successful products/features, delivering state of art solutions. Building bridges between engineering organizations and customers. Always shining in front of a customer. Frequent speaker at internal and public events. Industry influencer.
Self-starter with can do attitude, capable of driving the overall process of getting new products/services delivered across the organization.
Excellent interpersonal and people management skills.
A good team player and always keen to learn.
Advisor to a number of startups in networking and security areas.
Active contributor to the IETF and IRTF (co-chair RTGWG and RIFT.
