Senior Software Engineer•••••
Senior Design/Development member of a group developing complex telephony systems in a Windows environment for Signaling protocols by integrating with products from third-party vendors.
Designed and implemented Integrated Switched Digital Network (ISDN) Signaling in Visual C••••• and Windows using Intel Dialogic technology with high volume of calls. Reduced development/test time by 2 months by investigating use of third party ASN••••• compiler.
Designed and implemented Signaling System #7 (SS7) Signaling Manager changes in Visual C••••• and Windows, allowing Signaling traffic from the Ericsson SS7 board to flow through Intel Dialogic media timeslots by communicating over the H••••• bus of the chassis, allowing substantially higher signaling traffic. Tests with H••••• links revealed excellent performance.
Fixed defects in SS7 Signaling Manager on Telephony system in Visual C••••• and Windows.
Developed commands to interrogate objects on Telephony system to improve supportability.
Configured the Integration Test systems and developed test scripts for calls between the Windows based system and the host for VoIP, SS7 and ISDN Signaling Managers.
Developed the infrastructure for initialization protocol in Visual C••••• and Windows between Telephony system and the host and Circuit Maintenance operations for the VoIP solution.
Developed legacy changes required for new Windows system to be defined to the host.
Extended alarming capabilities of Element Management Software to support alarms from Windows systems, based on Perfmon counters. Received a performance award for the effort.
Integrated legacy Unisys system with Voice Profile Over Internet Mail (VPIM) gateway to send voice messages over the Internet to non-Unisys systems. Configured the legacy system and vendor gateway to translate X••••• addresses to SMTP addresses & vice versa.
