I have a leading role in collecting the requirements, designing the SW specifications, processor, storage and memory
requirements, and architecting and managing the development of several large systems including:
1- One approved patent “Mechanism For Group Polling Without Precise Timing” will be issued as US
patent number 9,131,509 on September 8, 2015, and three pending approvals
2- Large scale (Big Data) Radio Frequency Service Management system (used by SPRINT). The
system parses more than one terabyte of telecomm data every hour, searches the data for trends,
loads the data into SQL distributed database, and generate reports for end users. The system
automatically reconstructs the database when new data formats are detected. I have architected the
entire distributed system and developed all the underlying algorithms. The system is a result of
coordinated process, project, resource, and knowledge management
3- Large scale Per-Call Management Data system (PCMD). The system is used to predict end user
behavior and pro-actively manage user profiles to achieve the highest level of customer loyalty. I
have architected the memory management system and the software system
4- Interference mitigation SW tool. The tool generates and searches more than 1020 data elements and
detects special harmonic signals, which cause interference to mobile signals in the field. The system
scales linearly with exponentially increasing data volume. I have developed all the underlying
architecture and the search algorithms. The system is an example of quality and performance
excellence as well as excellent customer engagement .
5- Wireless sensor Neural/Fuzzy logic system for analyzing and detecting current human emotion. The
system targets security applications, social networks, and gaming industry. I have developed all the
underlying algorithms.
6- Scheduling and ranging algorithms for 802.11n and .11ac wireless networks.
7- Counterfeit Combat system. I have developed the requirements, specifications, and architecture for a
system aimed at securing the process of authentication and verification of documents.
8- I have managed the operation of IT department for a 20,000 students university campus. I
supervised the procurement of computer, networking, and peripheral equipment. I also managed the
development, purchase, and deployment of various SW applications.
9- A high throughput queueing model for measuring the performance of virtual and distributed virtual
memory systems.
