Hello Infrastructure Team,


I am Suresh, 33 years old from Hyderabad, a city in the southern part of India.


I am a telecommunications engineer with over 12 years of experience in the field of converged / unified communications. I am currently employed with Avaya (a spinoff of AT&T / Bell labs / Lucent).


My daily work revolves around troubleshooting complex problems escalated by in-house Level 3 engineers. A lot of my time is spent in the lab reproducing ‘customer reported’ problems and studying communication protocols like ISDN, H.323, SIP etc .


A majority of our applications are based on RHEL (2.6.18-128) and so I am good at Linux system administration. I do not write code, but someday, I think I will get to it. I am currently preparing for my RHCE exam and I am also trying to learn some serious scripting so I can use that knowledge in my workplace.


What can I offer to this group? – I am willing to start with anything that the group believes I can do.


As for the meetings, I think I’ll just watch for a while and start contributing when I am ready.


I am excited at the prospect of working with this group and I look forward to hearing from you all.


Thank you

Suresh R
