PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Carlsbad, CA.

Sr. Network Engineer Managed wide and local area network operations for the company’s 4 manufacturing divisions in California, Florida, Nevada, and Indiana. Ensured smooth, reliable flow of ERP and database transactions across the WAN between HQ office and remote sites. Supported users in sales, engineering, and manufacturing at all locations to deliver networked services, email, shared resources, invoice printing, and VoIP communications.

Re-designed the data infrastructures at all of HSO's locations and converted existing LANs to an all-Cisco environment:

o

Configured and installed redundant core R/S platforms(Cisco 4510s and 6509s)at all sites using HSRP for fail- over and fail-over recovery.

o

Replaced IDF switching gear at all locations with stack-able Cisco 3750X switches; connected all IDF switch stacks to MDF core switches using redundant 10gb fiber runs and STP logic for survivability.

o

Prepped the LAN switching equipment at all locations to carry VoIP / video traffic and readied all user stations to transfer from a digital phone system to full VoIP.

o

Re-cabled warehouse environments at 3 sites to account for user expansion, future growth, and improvements in wireless technology.

o

Modernized aging wireless equipment at all locations with a centralized wireless control system, resulting in a great leap in productivity for mobile office workers and warehouse users with scan guns.

Completed a WAN migration project for all four of the company's manufacturing facilities, connecting each site to corporate headquarters in New York:

o

Managed the delivery and turn-up of new 20mb fiber circuits at all sites, then configured and installed new Cisco 2921 CE routers. Set up BGP neighbor peering with AT&T PE routers and confirmed connectivity across MPLS to NY headquarters location.

o

Configured new user, voice, and server VLANs at all HSO sites and completely re-addressed each facility to comply with the corporate IP addressing schedule. Added new address blocks and subnets to BGP configuration and tested voice quality across the WAN.

Managed internet access and security for all sites:

o

Replaced older Cisco security appliances at the Carlsbad site with a Palo Alto UTM / firewall. Result: a far greater capability to protect the company's business operations from internal and external threats through intrusion detection/prevention, web filtration profiles, and alert monitoring.

o

Configured secure access over site-to-site IPSEC VPNs for remote office workers and outside vendors, as well as client-based SSL VPN access for remote sales associates.

Frequently relied upon to research technological solutions, such as cloud-based disaster recovery, and deliver analysis and implementation recommendations to management. Provide detailed and up-to-date network documentation and topology drawings for management and corporate technical directors.
