About Me

Hello.  My name is Tyler Christiansen, and I’m a network analyst for Windstream Communications, a national telecommunications provider in the United States.  If you don’t know the name, perhaps you know:

We have purchased them all, so if you don’t know the above under the new name of Windstream Communications, that should change in the coming months and years.  For more information on Windstream, visit the Wikipedia entry here.

What specifically do I do as a network analyst? I work in the Data Network Operations Center as a member of the Core IP division. I respond to events that have been raised or escalated by other members of the Windstream workforce, including all outages related to IP services. This includes troubles related to OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, MPLS, L2/L3 VPNs, and Metro Ethernet services. I also work on issues related to core network links or hand-offs and drains to carriers. In addition, I implement change controls and network maintenances that ensure the continued health and increased quality of the data network.

I work with other groups on a regular basis to ensure prompt resolution of any outage or service degradation that traverses the data network.

I also utilize a variety of in-house and industry-standard tools to proactively monitor the health of the network and respond when issues arise.

I’ve been certified by Juniper, Cisco, and CompTIA. I currently hold the JNCIS-ENT, JNCIA-Junos, CCNA, and A+ certifications. I have passed the CCNP ROUTE exam and am preparing for the CCNP SWITCH and JNCIS-SP exams.
