                        This is a vast project and I have contributed on both embedded side as well as protocol side and I am also involved in developing the complete automation frame work from the scratch for unit testing of dev team.

 

Key achievements on embedded side

 

  • This mainly involves porting of the LTE and UMTS stack on Broadcom Platform.

 

  • Developing/enhancing network, I2C, SPI, EEPROM drivers and some of the CISCO Proprietary drivers and application libraries.

 

  • Application library involves developing of lower layer API’s from the scratch to control GPIO,I2C and SPI devices, Ethernet, File system, RF modules, EEPROM etc

 

  • Developed API’s from the scratch to program bootloader, File system, some of the Cisco Proprietary software’s into the device.

 

  • Developed Firewall feature, Lan Auth feature and some of the Cisco Proprietary features from the scratch to run the device in a secure boot and protect it from possible hacking.

  • I have extensively worked and holds ownership on Operation and Management module (OAM) based on TR069 protocol and Performance Management (PM) Counters of LTE technology.

 

This module/software helps operators to configure, monitor its performance, upgrade, and maintain the device.

 

  • Engineering work involved implementation/enhancement of numerous PM counters and OAM software and required changes in L2 and L3 to update KPI (Key performance Indication stats).

 

  • I worked on some of the major LTE features like DRX and network listen, VOLTE (Voice over LTE) etc.

 

Skills Involved:

  1. Strong knowledge in LTE protocols like RRC, PDCP, RRM and MAC.
  2. Strong understanding of PM Counters Specs and TR069 protocol.
  3. Expertise in C, C++ and OS concepts.
  4. Basic knowledge in UMTS (3G) technology and protocols.

 

Key achievements on Automation side

 

  • Developed automation script and frame work to automate the procedure of periodic running of development team’s test cases on a set of rig’s and retrieve the result and publish as per the dev needs.

 

  • This involves developing the scheduler to schedule the test cases Parallel yon the limited rigs.

 

Skills Involved

  1. Expertise in advanced Perl and Python language.
  2. Basic understanding of C#.
