Hey I 'm Rahul Tech Enthusiast, Software Developer
+ Grad Student @UWisconsin, Madison

Work Experience

  I had worked at Cisco Systems as a Software Engineer.   During my 3 years of work experience, I had worked in almost all Cisco IOS/IOS-XE switches and routers like Cat 2K, 3K, 4K, 6K, ISRs and ASRs. In my recent project I had worked on Cisco's next generation platforms like Cat3850 (Edison) and Cat 5760 (Katana). My work focuses on Network Security.

Before joining Cisco as full time employee, I was intern at Cisco and worked in NBAR (Network Based Application Recognition) technological group.

Research Works & Certifications

My areas of Interest are Computer Networks and Network Security. I want to expand my research in SDN, Networking for Big Data Systems and IOT.

I have used Raspberry PI as a centralized home router that was connected to Arduino over a Zigbee network and temperature sensors. It provided an efficient solution for Access Control and Timer based authorization for IoE sensors. My work is "Home Automation: Access Control in IoT Devices" is published in International Journal of Scientific Research Publications. Further, this solution was demoed at Security Conference (SecCon 2014) at Cisco Systems, Bangalore.

With evolving interest in Networks, I started to explore load balancing techniques across multiple computing resources such as computer cluster network links. I have implemented a solution that reduces the lookup time for routers to O(1). The algorithm is published in International Journal of Scientific Research Publications as "Load Balancing in a Network."
