About Myself :

    I was born and brought up at IIT Kanpur. After completing my schooling at Central School, IIT Kanpur, I cleared JEE with an All India Rank of 80 and joined B.Tech in Department of Electrical Engineering at IIT Kanpur. I passed out in 1990 with a CPI of 9.7 and joined Larsen and Toubro as Trainee. Very soon got bored with Mumbai life style and shifted to Chandigarh to join Punjab Wireless. I worked there for 2 years in the area of Mobile Communication. I got experience in both design and production departments.

Then I decided that I will go for further studies, so I came back to IIT Kanpur in 1992. I joined as Research Engineer in Department of Electrical Engineering and joined M.Tech in Telecom Networks as a part time candidate. I completed my M.Tech in fall of 1995 with a CPI of 9.25. My M.Tech thesis was in the area of ATM.

IIT Kanpur was at that time gearing up to lay down a robust Local Area Network in the campus. I was identified as a resource person to carry this activity. I shifted to Computer Centre as Senior Engineer in 1998. Since then I am working in Computer Centre. I am the Network Administrator of IIT Kanpur and I have played an instrumental role in in designing and building one of the largest Campus Networks in the country.

Presently IIT Kanpur has a Campus Network with more than 25000 nodes serving more than 10000 users. I am incharge of Networks Group and with a team of ten young and energetic professionals, I manage and maintain the IITK Network and Network Services. Responsibilities of the Network Group include:

I have also executed several Consultancy Projects.


Some of the recent Projects I have completed are:

1.      Design and Implementation of WAN for Dainik Jagran.

Dainik Jagran has connected 25 publishing and printing centers in the country over a WAN using Leased Lines. The network provides data and voice (VoIP) connectivity between all the offices. The network is designed with alternate routers and ISDN and PSTN dial backup.


2.      Design and Implementation of Campus LAN for IIIT, Allahabad.

IIIT, Allahabad is implementing a campus wide network of about 2000 nodes. Various buildings in the campus are interconnected over 9mm Single Mode Fiber providing Gigabit connectivity. The Access network is on Enhanced Cat5 Cabling providing 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Connectivity.


3.      Design and Implementation of LAN for UP Stock Exchange.

UP Stock Exchange have implemented a 1000 node LAN providing connectivity to BOLT system in Bombay Stock Exchange over VSAT and leased line.


4.      Design and Implementation of Campus LAN of NBRI, Lucknow.

NBRI has implemented a campus LAN with Fast Ethernet Fiber Optic backbone on Multimode Fiber and Internet connectivity using Leased Line From BSNL. 


5.      Design and Implementation of LAN for Subhash Institute of Technology, Kanpur.

SIST has implemented a small LAN interconnectivity its PC Labs and Offices.
