MAY-93 TO AUG-93

MICROSOFT, DATAPOINT, QANTAS (Sydney, Australia). Software Consultant/Developer In October 1992 Anthony decided to do some travelling. He first visited California, then Asia and Australia. On his travels Anthony visited a number of software companies and built up a large number of contacts. Once in Australia Anthony was offered contract work with, Data-point. Through Data-point Anthony worked on projects for Microsoft and Qantas. A major part of work involved developing software for a telephony project using 'C' on IBM PS/2s running the OS/2 operating system with Presentation Manager (PM). The objective of the project was to deliver telephone calls with their associated caller information to a human answering agent (CTI). A number of tricky interconnectivity problems between OS/2, Windows NT, SCO UNIX and AS/400 platforms were resolved. The caller would call into an automated Voice Response Unit (VRU) and be requested to enter his membership number. This number would then be verified against an AS/400 based database. The caller would then be allowed to request further information though the VRU or chose to be transferred to a live agent. On requesting the agent transfer the call is queued on a software controllable Automatic Call Distributor (ACD) and tracked along the queue by a SCO UNIX system. At the same time a Windows NT database is queried for caller information. As the agent answers the call the caller's details are married to the call and displayed on the agent's terminal. Anthony's task involved the development of a DLL module to be used by the Intervoice software, running on the PS/2, for the transfer of caller ID via a serial line to the UNIX host. The developed software involved two parts: the DLL to be loaded and used by the Intervoice software and a serial server module. The implementation involved the use of shared memory under OS/2. The project was completed successfully and on schedule. CTI, TELEPHONY, C, OS/2, SCO UNIX, WINDOWS NT, INTERVOICE VOICE RESPONSE UNIT

CHRYSALIS INTERACTIVE LTD. (London, England) Project Leader. Chrysalis extended Anthony's contract, initially to help in the development of the Colonial Mutual Group (CMG) training database and subsequently to develop a key part of one of IBM's network exhibits for Telecom 91. The first two months of the contract were spent analysing, and designing several components of the CMG database. Subsequently the analysis work was handed over to the implementation team. Several complex data integrity issues involving data capture had been resolved. Finally Anthony designed and developed the data capture component of the system. The IBM project for Telecom 91 Anthony implemented software enabling an exhibit to deliver a controlled performance of an audio-visual presentation running concurrently across five audio-visual stations. Anthony was responsible for the correct synchronisation of the five stations though his software as well as all the network components of the project. Anthony designed and implemented a synchronisation service enhancement to IBM's own Audio Visual Connection (AVC) system. The synchronisation service uses Server/Client processes across an IBM token ring network to co-ordinate the delivery of the five AVC stories. The resulting work was then taken by IBM and further developed into a product. OS/2, LAN MANAGER, OS/2, PROGRAMMING TOOLKIT, IBM TOKEN RING, IBM/C2

MAY-90 TO AUG-90

CONSULTANCY AND PROJECTS S.R.L. FOR BRITISH TELECOM INTERNATIONAL (London, England) Project Manager. After a period of studies to complete his Honours Degree in Computer Science Anthony was engaged by C. & P. in Rome (Italy) to help complete a project for British Telecom International. He was overall responsible for the project. The human resources consisted of two analyst programmers and three junior programmers. His tasks were to co-ordinate the overall project as well as develop certain modules. The objective of the project was to produce a system which would enable radio calls from ships, to be automatically connected to BT's land public switched telephone network (PSTN) using custom built hardware provided by CIMAT s.p.a. The coastal stations, receiving radio calls were linked together using an X25 based network. A facility enabled each of the remote coastal stations to link up to the central management unit in London in order to exchange subscriber information. This was implemented by using the UNIX uucp facilities and modems. At each coastal station, radio to PSTN connections were handled by a group of server processes implemented using shared memory semaphores and message queues for synchronisation. Anthony was involved in designing and implementing several parts of the system, including several server processes, the link to the central management unit and the interface between some of the server process and the Informix database holding customer information. In his last week he commenced a feasibility study for the CONSOB a client of C&P. The CONSOB is the Italian stock exchange control body. The hardware resources consist of an AMDAHL mainframe several MicroVAX’s, PCs and a number of AT&T 3B2s. These systems are distributed over several thin Ethernet local area networks all linked together by one major thick Ethernet network. The study was to establish the feasibility of creating an Ethernet network monitor. SCO UNIX V 3.2 / C / INFORMIX SQL
