EXPERIENCE

BelronUS/Safelite Auto Glass, 2004 - Present

Data Network Engineer

Manage, monitor and maintain an enterprise-wide mixed-vendor data network spread throughout the U.S. The network consists of 5,000 users, two data centers, three large call centers, 85 small call centers and 344 retail stores. The locations are connected with a mixture of MPLS circuits and Internet VPN tunnels. The backbone consists of four layer-3 switches, split between the two data centers in a redundant fashion using two switched OC12 hand-offs. Both data centers have an equal Internet presence to provide for redundancy for VPN-connected retail stores and users as well as third-party VPNs and corporate web portals which are also used by third-party partners and require 24/7 availability. OSPF is used at the core as well as at the edge. BGP is used on the MPLS network as well as at the Internet hand-offs. Cisco, Juniper and Fortinet products are employed on the network to provide a best-of-breed solution.
