Computer Network Architect
Master’s or Bachelor’s in Computer Science, Computer Networking, Information Technology or Electronics Engineering along with minimum 6 years of work experience in networking field.
Within the office, takes responsibility for the Network, Server and Storage infrastructure additionally providing governance, policies, procedures, standards and oversight to the systems integration and partners. Design, deploy and manage Network & security Solutions for the Corporate Enterprise and Data Centers.
Responsible for ensuring all virtualization hosts within the data center(s) conform to the same standard configurations and driver / firmware levels that are in line with best practices.
Analyzing the existing customer IT and proposing Network, Security and Unified Communication solutions, using best practices and latest technologies.
Evaluate RFP document to create Technical Solution proposals which includes
Technical write-up: BoQ, SoW, Network Implementation Plan, High level design and Low level design.
- Architect, design, implement and operate content delivery networks
- Work on current networking technologies including but limited to BGP, IS-IS,OSPF, MPLS and ability to ramp up quickly on emerging technologies, including 3rd party vendor integrations like Cisco, Juniper, VMware, etc
- Candidates for this role MUST have a minimum 5 years experience providing implementation and technical support of networking products in LAN, WAN, or Internet services environments.
- Strong Interpersonal skills, Ability to work well with many levels of customer engineering and management, ability to work well with the juniper account team and Technical assistance center.
- Detailed technical experience in the installation and operation of IP Routers Switches and Firewalls. This includes hands-on operation of management tools and network analyzers.
- Detailed understanding of the protocols surrounding IP networks. These skills should generally include: a. TCP/IP fundamentals, b. IP subnetting and supernetting and hierarchical routing principles, c. Routing protocol operation (OSPF and BGP), d. Routing policies at BGP peering points, e. VPNs and the associated tunneling technologies (L2TP, MPLS, etc.) f. Switching, spanning tree, VXLAN-EVPN and other switching technology as required, Firewalls and associated technologies as required
- Large transport network utilizing OSPF/BGP/MPLS/RSVP/LDP. Physical network covers most of the geography of southern California. They have approximately 300 L3 hop locations connected via a combination of Ethernet over Fiber, some copper, some microwave and a relatively small amount of traditional TDM. The network is 98% Juniper, consisting of M320s (2), MX960s, MX480s, MX240s, SRX240s in packet mode, MX104s, ACXs, LN2600s. There is a smattering of CTP utilized to provide Circuit Emulation over the IP network.
- MPLS with both LDP and (transitioning to) RSVP is utilized everywhere. Both L2 and L3 tunneling are employed. VRFs are used at endpoints to segment traffic for transport across the converged network. QOS is heavily employed to protect critical services during unexpected network load events.
- OSPF is the IGP used (although attempts are being made to move to ISIS but route leaking in the network is slowing that effort), and BGP is utilized to provide the MPLS signaling services (VPLS, etc) as well as for standard external route advertisement with peers.
