INOC has announced the appointment of 30-year industry veteran Jim Martin as Vice President of Technology. Martin will be responsible for managing the development of INOC’s monitoring technology, NOC platform, and software development, systems and networking teams, as well as strategic technology planning, and best practice development and implementation.
Responding to media queies just before taking over the new job, Jim Martin disclosed that INOC is a customer-centric organization that is poised to dramatically increase its capacity and scale, and provide an even higher quality product for customers. Marin added that he will drive new technical initiatives to support INOC’s continued expansion as well as enabling closer collaboration with customers to address their infrastructure support demands.
As an example, he mentions the challenges that SDN / NFV bring to the network, and the tools and skills required to troubleshoot the new programmable networks.
In addition to enhancing INOC’s existing technology and systems, Jim is responsible for strategic technology planning, and best practice development and implementation.
This includes overseeing the research and recommendation of new and emerging systems and software products to be analyzed, assimilated and integrated within the company and into the NOC platform.
Commenting on Martin’s induction into the management, Prasad Ravi, CEO of INOC revelaed that his proven ability to evaluate core technologies and infrastructure, and future-proof them to grow and support INOC’s services, now, as well as in 10 to 15 years, will provide an invaluable asset to our expansion both domestically and internationally.
Prior to joining INOC, Jim was the Director of Operations at the Internet Systems Consortium, where he led the team operating F-Root, a worldwide anycast cluster providing critical Internet infrastructure as one of the 13 global DNS root servers. Previously, he was a Principal Consultant at DeepDive Networks and an IP Architect at Woven Systems, which was later acquired by Fortinet.
Jim has also served as a Solutions Architect at Netzwert AG, a Senior Research Scientist at Nortel Networks, and a Lead Engineer at Interop, where he designed, built and managed the InteropNet, which at that time was the world’s largest mobile network. He is an active participant in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), where he has authored a number of Internet Standards (RFCs).
In addition, he leads the IETF NOC Team, designing and delivering the network that powers the IETF. He is active in a number of professional industry associations, including the North American Network Operators Group (NANOG), Domain Name System Operations Analysis and Research Center (DNS-OARC), Réseaux IP Européens (RIPE), and Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
