CV, Experienced Network Engineer Seeking International Placement
I have helped a client struggling to cope with the increasing load of security screening by upgrading their system.
There were a lot of hidden Challenges like harden walls, insufficient building power load, cables without proper ducting etc.
The upgraded security system was able to comfortably handle the screening of 16000 personnel and 4000 vehicle per hour which help the client meet their objective.
A data center relocation project was transferred to my team 2.5 weeks before the schedule date, with no details on the network topology and requirement.
The only information was that a pile of network equipment was being shipped over and limited information on the bill of material of the shipment.
I was able to quickly work with the server team and customer to determine the network requirement and come up with a network design with the shipped equipment and procure the missing firewall.
