I am Manav Bhatia and have been working in L3 and Routing (BGP, OSPF, IS-IS, RIP and MPLS) since 2000 now. I designed BGP and BGP/MPLS VPN control plane from scratch for one of my earlier employers for our distributed router architecture. I have authored several IETF RFC standards (5310, 5709, 5840, 6039, 6094, 6506, 6518 and 6564) and documents on BGP, IS-IS, OSPFv2, OSPFv3, IPv6, IPsec, 1588, BFD, PIM, NTP and Routing Protocols Security. I am a part of the advisory group of routing experts (Routing Directorate) selected by the IETF Routing Area Directors to assist them in reviewing standards produced in the IETF.
I am a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff (DMTS) at Alcatel-Lucent (SRPG, IP Division), and am responsible for architecting and designing the next generation of 7210 SAS series of Carrier Ethernet devices. Prior to this i was working on designing and implementing L3 forwarding, IGMP Snooping, Layer 3 VPNs, CPU Path, and MPLS control and data plane for the 7210 SAS routers.
I have been listed as one of the top 18 Indian Young Innovators under the age of 35 (TR35) by Massachusetts Institute of Technology‘s (MIT) publication, Technology Review India for the year 2011 for the work that i have done in Alcatel-lucent and Internet Routing Protocols Security.
