Work Experience:

Dec 1999 — Till Date
Reno Online Services, Inc., New York, NY

Software Engineer

Reno Online Services, Inc., an United Online Services company, is a leading provider of Internet access to millions of computer users throughout the United States. Founded in 1995, the company provides multiple levels of service, including free basic Internet access, billable premium dial-up service, and in certain markets high-speed broadband access. I worked on numerous projects here, some highlights are:

  • Design and Implementation of a Proxy Server:
  • HTTP, Apache Web Server, Solaris 2.x and C++.
  • Developed a proxy server which sits between the front-end server and a group of backend servers for the web-based free email service.

In the old set-up, with the increasing traffic, we had the flexibility of offsetting the load by increasing the number of back-end servers. However the scalability was bounded by the number of IP addresses available. With the proxy setup, the proxy server multiplexes the incoming requests to one of the back-end servers. And the back-end servers only had to run on different port numbers rather than on different IP addresses. The proxy server, in addition to load balancing the incoming requests, also takes care of monitoring the backend servers and restarting them if any of them goes down.

This project gave me a very good exposure at developing efficient, memory-leak proof, multi-threaded proxy server on Solaris platform. It gave me an opportunity to work with different groups, spread across multiple geographic locations, and understand complexities of code management and integration.

VAL Protocol and Services: C, Apache Web Server, UNIX.

Developed a protocol called Value Added Link VAL protocol to query Lycos email/phone search engine online yellow pages and receive the search results in universal ASCII format. Here, a user can come to our website and search for email addresses and phone numbers through a search form on the web site. This search program, hosted on Reno s servers, converts user s query into VAL format and submits the request to Lycos email/phone search engines. Lycos then performs the search and sends the results back again in VAL format. Reno s search function then interprets these results, reformats and presents them to the end users. Since this mechanism separates the HTML tags from the query results of Lycos search engines; it gives us complete flexibility in controlling the look and feel of the result pages displayed to our users. This mechanism also gives us the ability to display our own marketing material on the search result pages.

Internal Logs and Management Information System: Solaris, Apache and Netscape Enterprise Web Servers, Perl CGIs, and UNIX shell scripts.

Developed the log-management system for interpreting and for on-line presentation of server impression logs both for internal traffic monitoring and for usage by our sales team. The system generates reports and a lot of miscellaneous statistics for each one of our services separately, and is easily accessible, through password authentication mechanism, to any one of our employees through a set of cgi scripts.

Worked on several other C and C++ web site development projects. Worked with various web content and service providers like Snapfish, MyEvents, Evite etc. and integrated their services with Reno. During the development of these projects, participated in various aspects of Software Engineering such as design, analysis, implementation, testing, debugging, and maintenance of software systems. These applications were developed using C, C++, UNIX shell scripts, PERL, XML, Java, Java Servlets, JavaScript, HTML and Apache Web Servers.

This system was developed to effectively manage the human resource department of a multi-national software consultancy firm Global Infotech, USA . This is similar to the online job search service, but at a smaller level. This system maintains details of all the job-seeking candidates on one side, and details of various companies looking for the candidates and the positions they are looking for on the other side. Candidates details like their qualification, their past experience, previous company details etc. are then matched with various companies requirements and after matching the candidates with the companies, the candidate and the contact person of the company are notified and an interview date of their convenience is set up. The details of the interview and whether the candidate is selected or not and other corresponding details are updated in the appropriate tables of the database through a CGI interface. Various reports are then generated depending on the requirement on a weekly and monthly basis. I was solely responsible for the implementation of the complete project from the database design phase to the installation and testing phase on the client s machines.

A Spot TV System: C++, Java Servlets, JavaScript, ORACLE, SQL, Apache Web Server

This is an e-commerce application called New Millennium developed for a local media company. New Millennium serves agencies that buy spots for advertisements on local and network television. The web-based application provides media research, ability to place orders for advertisement time slots online and notify distributor/clients of scheduled spots.

IntroStep – Ft Worth, TX
10/2000 – Present

Sr. Software Engineer, Lead C++/QT Programmer

  • I wrote a GUI application in C++ for Linux and Win95/98/2000 to interface to Anritsu-8801 CDMA test equipment to monitor cellular over-the-air traffic. This application connected to tester via TCP-IP and issued commands to begin receiving data containing CDMA messages. I then formatted this data to feed into the protocol decoder software engine/GUI, which I also wrote.
  • I enhanced a GUI tool, written in C++ for Linux and Win95/98/2000, which was used to test CDMA handsets. I organized the tests and wrote a GUI wrapper to ease the end-user s ability to select and run tests. I had to overhaul the C++ code to make this possible.
  • I wrote GUI application in C++ for Linux and Win95/98/2000 to edit the proprietary XML implementation that defines protocols.
  • I worked with COM, Visual C++, and Visual Basic to create a COM interface to our messaging engine.
  • I wrote an engine to parse protocols, working extensively with XML to define protocols. This engine allowed one to not only parse messages from a protocol but to create messages as well.
  • I became very intimate with IS95 and CDMA-2000 Layer 3 messaging.
  • I worked extensively with a DOM to parse/create XML.
  • I wrote XML to define all IS95 and CDMA-2000 messages as given by C.S0005-A v5.0 Upper Layer Layer 3 Signaling Specification for CDMA-2000 Spread Spectrum Systems at
  • I used the XML protocol parser to parse CDMA-2000/1X-RTT messages sent between cellular phones and base-stations.
  • All of the above applications work cross-platform on Windows-x86 and Linux-x86. This was accomplished using the QT SDK
  • I used CVS for configuration management.
  • You may go to to see the software that I wrote.

Motorola – Plano, TX
1/1994 – 10/2000

Lead Software Engineer – CDMA Digital Cellular group

I tested CDMA digital cellular base stations BTSs which encompassed:

  • Writing a C++ visual application to interface to an RF cellular radio
  • Writing a large GUI application in Java for Win3.1 to test cellular base stations
  • Operating, both manually and via automated tests scripts, various RF test equipment including the HP8921A CDMA Analyzer, the HP8935 CDMA Analyzer, the HP 437B Power Meter, the Gigatronix Power Meter, the HP83236 PCS Adapter, and Motorola s own Cybertest CDMA Analyzer. The test equipment was accessed via a National Instruments serial to GPIB converter.
  • Writing software to send/receive messages to/from the BTS and test equipment. This software was used to download, configure, and analyze the BTS and was used to control test equipment in order to perform in-field customer certification testing on forward and reverse path RF signals. The test equipment was accessed to make measurements of RF signals as well as to generate signals, which were then measured at the BTS. The primitive commands of this application were written in C++ and the tests were Korn Shell/Perl wrappers around the primitives to perform the tests and make/store measurement results. I later rewrote this entire architecture in Java.

    The Java implementation was a multi-threaded application, the low-level code of which was designed almost in its entirety by myself. I also had a big hand in the design of the GUI front end. In this implementation I used Java 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2, including Swing, TCP/IP sockets, and serial port access. I used java to create a BTS simulator against which we did unit-level testing of our test application code. Ask me about the “Java Post Office” and the “Java Job Scheduler” which I designed and wrote.

  • Being in charge of the Java prototype/feasibility study for rewriting the BTS test software.
  • Directing all operations of Motorola s first CDMA digital cellular Hand-Off. This included controlling the Motorola transcoder frame and remotely configuring the BTSs used in the Hand-Off testing.
  • Using Perl to write a web based CGI search engine and numerous helpful scripts used by our department.
  • Using Korn-Shell, Awk, Perl, and various standard Unix executables to write numerous helpful scripts used by our department.
  • Representing Motorola for business trips to Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and various locations in the U.S.
  • Writing a web-based search engine using JSP Java Servlets.
  • Using clearcase as our configuration management system and did much of the clearcase management for our projects.
