Sales Engineer Intern

Avaya

I acquired experience and knowledge in all the Avaya portfolio: Video, UC, Networking, SMB, CC. I also learned about IT trends and new technologies such as WebRTC and SDN. My training path was to become a full SE.

Achievements and Projects

As a student, I have contested in academic competitions:

  • Participated in the 41st International Physics Olympiad (Croatia, 2010)
  • Gold Medal in the XX National Physics Olympiad (Mexico, 2009)

In order to obtain my bachelor's degree, I made a research in the field of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). This research led to a paper that was published in Barcelona 2014 at the 11th International Symposium on Wireless Communications Systems (ISWCS) with the name Residual energy-based transmission schemes for event reporting wireless sensor networks, that is an international IEEE congress. The program was made in C with Data Structures, and compiled with GCC, all the WSN was modeled with structures and pointers, I used discrete simulation and real-time simulation in this program.

The paper can be found at:

In Avaya I developed an application (java written) for a large bank in Mexico to make a Click-to-Call functionality, so the Agenst of the bank's Contact Center could easily reach out to important customers and all this remains recorded in the bank's systems. The application was developed with the Avaya's middleware solution called "Avaya Breeze".
