Optical Systems Research group at AT&T focuses on constantly optimizing the components and the system architecture to maximize the performance in terms of bandwidth as well as cost. The research department maintains a futuristic outlook on the network and work with optical subsystem vendors, communicating AT&T's vision, thereby tailoring the technology to meet future demands and goals of the network.
The systems team works with component vendors to communicate the needs of AT&T's future networks, to test their equipment in our experimental setups and validate that they meet industry standards, perform according to specs and meet our need. We designed, developed, tested and maintained an optical systems simulation program to model and simulate optical systems, automate experiments, capture data and interpret results.
Optical Systems and Technology Lab (OSTL) is the home of innovative photonic system solutions for optical communication networks, medical imaging and other disciplines bridging the gap between novel approaches and real world applications.
Traditional OSAs have limited resolution for numerous applications demanding high performance and often the cost rises exponentially if performance is improved using conventional methods. Coherent Channel Analyzer (CCA) is a novel solution providing improved resolution at a fraction of the cost. I worked with a team of SMEs to determine the requirements of the industry, did brain-storming sessions to develop a novel design to meet these requirements, presented the solution as well as initial prototypes to various stakeholders and shareholders to obtain the necessary grant money. I also developed a .NET application for the UI that the end users can use for the CCA.
Research in Motion (RIM) is an industry leader in wireless communication, blazing the trail for smart phones with its most popular wireless handheld device, the BlackBerry.
The test team was responsible for ensuring that the wireless devices, s soon to be released conformed to all the industry standard wireless protocols. The protocol test team ran nightly builds for the Layer 1 code and ensured the successful integration with the rest of the 3G protocol stack. Once the OS was loaded on the device, the interoperability test team ensured the device's communication with the base stations followed the 3GPP protocol and the UI responded as per standard.
An Automated Test Framework (ATF) was created to increase efficiency of the test and development team: create a platform for the test lead to set a time and execute the code from the code management software (perforce) where the developers put in their changes and run the automated test cases, report errors, create a log and email the test lead of the results. ATF has a DB of test cases that developers can log in and run specific tests on their builds, based on a queue system.
