PAST PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES

 

                          Industrial Experience

                                      

                          -- One year sabbatical experience with Cistech Inc., Ottawa.

                         

·        12 month R&D work on devising performance optimization techniques for Secure Socket Layer-based systems

                         

                          -- One Year sabbatical experience with Capacity Analysis Group (Nortel Networks, Ottawa).

 

·        12 month research on resource management techniques for Distributed Telecommunication Servers.

 

                          -- One year sabbatical experience with the XA-Core Capacity Methods Group, Division 7, (Nortel Networks, Ottawa).

 

·        Worked for 12 months in the XA-Core project primarily researching effective methods for improving capacity of their new multiprocessor-based switch.

 

Technical Contributions:

 

                                       * Analysis of the call control module of the DMS telephone switch

 

                                       * Development of new scheduling techniques for capacity improvement for the XA-Core based switches.

 

                                       * Investigation of effective methods for improving capacity through reduction in memory contention.

 

-- Exceutive Engineer: Worked for six years in the R&D wing of Indian Telephone Industries (Bangalore, India) on the development of hardware and software for microprocessor based digital telephone switches. Some of these works have been presented at international conferences and published in a magazine (by McGraw Hill). The projects undertaken during this period include the following:

                   

                                       * Design and development of general purpose CPU boards and memory boards for microprocessors.

 

                                       * Design of a bus standard and a standard bus interface for microprocessors (in collaboration with colleagues).

 

* Design and development of hardware for a microprocessor based space switch used in a digital telephone exchange.

 

                                       * Design and development of firmware for peripheral controllers for microprocessor based systems.                                                                          

 

* Design and development of protocol software for a network of microprocessors in a telephone switch (in collaboration with colleagues).

 

                                       * Design and development of an Operating Systems Kernel for a digital PABX.
