Infrastructure Design and Migration

Jul 1999 – Feb 2002

Infrastructure design and implementation lead for network upgrade to support expansion of business locations from 8 locations to 35 locations, with an expected quadrupling of staff. Migration of core switching (Cisco 5505 to 6509) and routing platforms, WAN upgrades, implementation of QoS over frame relay and ISDN services to support planned Citrix deployment, and associated infrastructure activities.

This project required a large number of changes to be made to the existing underlying control and management systems due to the large increase in staff numbers and sites in a short space of time. This project also involved major server upgrade activities, along with the implementation of a number managed Ethernet services to support new office locations (6 additional sites were added) within the Brisbane CBD.
