Build/Tools Engineer (Senior to Principal level) Smart Services Router (SSR)
San Jose, CA (Silicon Valley)

With a backplane capacity of 16 Tbps and a non-blocking switching fabric, the Smart Services Router can scale to the bandwidth needs of even the most demanding applications, while protecting low-bandwidth, low-latency applications from getting crowded out. State-of-the-art signaling capacities address the growing control overhead that comes with an ever-increasing number of connected end-user devices. A variety of network functions – ranging from subscriber management to policy control and mobility support – enables a fast and simple introduction of new end-user services, maximum end-user experience, and optimal use of network resources. Sophisticated availability and resilience capabilities, encompassing both hardware and software, minimize the probability and the potential impact of a failure. As a consolidated platform for both fixed and mobile network functions, the Smart Services Router realizes complete convergence between network access types. Its proven and renowned operating system provides functional convergence complemented by a coherent interface for all network functions. This simplifies operations and reduces the cost of ownership
