Professional Experience

Alcatel-Lucent, Bell Labs, Murray Hill, NJ                                    2004 – present

Networking Architect / Director

Created and managed teams, raised funds, budgeted, scheduled, and coordinated cross functional activities to innovate, create patents, execute and deliver projects.  Created workflows, managed R&D teams and product management teams spread globally, and managed R&D with hands-on approach to deliver on-time, and built strong customer relations.

  • Funded several projects from a variety of government institutions including MassDoT, DARPA, DoJ, DISA, NACA, DHS, DISA, DoE and DoT.  Created successful project proposals, budgeting, scheduling estimates, execution, and customer presentation, and on-time delivery.
  • Created a new vertical in ALU in the space of next generation billboards, and funded it.  Created patents and algorithms in the space, and created and managed teams to deliver pilot runs for Clear-Channel France.  Demonstrated to customer, the ability of  these next generation billboards to increase advertising revenue by 10X. 
  • Won a proposal to study and analyze MBTA’s current network and propose a roadmap and provide technical strategy to transform their infrastructure to a modern and modular network.  This work laid the ground work for Massachusetts DoT to lower OpEx, increase the efficiency of adding new application, and future-proof their technology with an ROI in 4 years.
  • The above work with MassDoT also resulted in a white paper, and laying Alcatel-Lucent’s strategy for the transportation industry vis-à-vis SDN (Software Defined Networks).
  • Founded, and funded an initiative within Alcatel-Lucent in HetNets (LTE, 3G, Wifi) wireless technology connectivity and service.  Created the algorithms, patents, and built and managed a team to implement.  Enterprises (especially healthcare) gained from this because they had better control and management of user traffic and could offer features that were not otherwise possible.
  • Won a proposal from DARPA to re-architect its delivery of video and data services in a QoS (Quality of Service) sensitive way.  Built teams from LGS (Lucent Govt. Solutions), Lockheed Martin, and Bell Labs Research, among others to successfully bid and execute this multimillion dollar project for DARPA. This helped the US military make video sessions and transfer data with high priority and security and using edge based intelligence
  • Provided product management, and handled customer relations for Lucent’s IMS solution for Deutsche Telecom.  Successfully architected and provided custom fit solutions for the customer’s needs.  Worked with other organization and managed four teams spread globally across four time zones to guarantee product planning, QA, and managing the product life cycle. This helped Deutsche telecom to successfully pilot the IMS solution.
  • Architected, created algorithms and patents, and implemented a micro-mobility solution that could rival mobile-IP and provide fault tolerance in External gateway protocols like BGP. This is referred work in the industry, and is more commonly known as STEM (Seamless Transport Endpoint Mobility)


Euforaiz Inc., Somerville, NJ                                                             2008 – 2010

Founder, CEO

Founded and successfully attracted funds of $1 Million for Euforaiz Inc (a cross platform sharing and viral advertising technology).  Grew the company to an evaluation of $25 Million and 16 employees at its peak.  Won customer trials and customer engagements with companies like Comcast Inc, and Harman International.


Lucent Technologies, Bell Labs, Holmdel, NJ                                2000 – 2004

  • Contributed to this high density feature rich edge router by developing the IP routing module, MPLS, as well as the architecture for the CLI/WEB interface


SCO Unix, Murray Hill, NJ                                                             1998 – 2000

Kernel Research Engineer

Contributed in several areas of the Unix operating system, especially for highly parallel systems for data center operations.  MLCA (Multi Level Cache Affinity) was a particularly distinguishing work delivered.  MLCA was a paradigm shift in process scheduling design and completely did away with the old concept of timed-aging.  Today this has become the industry standard for such scheduling tasks and has also found its way into the Linux kernel.
