Time Warner Cable Kansas City, MO
Manager, Service Management Development. 9/2015 – 5/2017
Develop Time Warner Cable Data/Voice Synthetic Testing Unit (STU).
Develop a complete automated testing system for the TWC voice/data network. OpenWRT was utilized as the base platform for creating firmware that converted a Linksys AC1900 into a STU. Network testing was developed mostly in C and Bash. The STU’s were then initially deployed in the Kansas City market, and then Los Angeles and New York with a goal of nationwide deployment.
PHP and MySQL were utilized to develop data collection facilities where the results were warehoused for both real time customer experience metrics, network monitoring and trending over time. These metrics have been instrumental in identifying network issues that were not able to be seen from ordinary alarms and surveillance.
Ericsson Overland Park, KS
Applications Developer IV 9/2009-9/2015.
Developed the eProbe, a low cost testing solutions at around $100 per unit compared to vendor cost of around $25,000 per unit.
The eProbe was a complete wireless testing platform for measuring the user experience. It was first prototyped on the Raspberry PI and then migrated to Beagle Bone Black. OpenWRT was utilized as the base platform. There were several modules built to support testing and numerous KPIs collected.
The Netgear 341U LTE device was utilized for connecting to the Sprint network. It was controlled using the QMI interface. Both libQMI and Gobi library were used for development. The Gobi library was initially used but features of libQMI were later needed but the two libraries were not compatible and a bridge had to be developed between the two. The libQMI package used Glib-2.0 a complete asynchronous library and the Gobi API was mostly synchronous but had some asynchronous features. Other devices that were used and supported, Sierra 5728, Sierra 5725, Franklin U770, Sierra 250U and a few SDC capable Android handsets.
Developed data collection facility utilizing PHP and MySQL
This was the interface for all remote devices to check into and deposit data. It also included a dynamic data parser which parsed the metrics collected from the devices into a database. The data was then able to be used for a NOCC display for real time customer experience.
Developed numerous customer experience tests for Voice calls, Voice Mail, Visual Voice Mail, SMS, Picture Mail, HTTP, FTP, DNS, QCHAT/SDC etc. There are over 300 tests in the testing Suite.
Developed testing for inter-carrier related testing, i.e. Sprint to AT&T, Sprint to T-Mobile, T-Mobile to Verizon, etc.
Developed and deployed testing solution for Mobilicity in Canada.
