My name is John Allen, and I am a Solutions Engineer here at F5 focusing on Telecom and what we call Service Providers (as in, they provide a service like Internet, TV, Messaging, Phone, etc.). I have worked in this area for the last 15 years or so, both for Mobile Operators like AT&T Mobility, and for the Mobile Operator's messaging vendors like Openwave, Nokia-Siemens Networks, Acision, and others. I am also an experienced programmer, and I am currently having fun with the new Ruby Gem for iControls!
If you have questions about how F5 products and services work in a Telecom or "Service Provider" environment, please feel free to ask here. F5 is spending a lot of time and effort to hire people like me to help you be successful with your Telecom and Service Provider environments!
