Thanks for visiting my blog!

My name is Furrukh Fahim and I have worked in telecommunications and IT industry, for 20+ years.  Here I write topics of interest in communications networks and insights I have gained to answer recurring questions. For example,

  • Where and how much to invest in network capacity and/or increase network coverage?
  • How to control network resources to increase network efficiency and lower cost?
  • How to design networks – security, VLANs, addressing etc.?
  • How to restore services when outages occur?

I am also interested in network modeling and tools to quantify options in deploying or optimizing networks.  I have put some of my browser-based tools on Netmatics.net for use by networking professionals.  Some of the posts here describe how to use the tools.

The views expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Juniper Networks.

    Greetings Furrukh,
    I am fan of your tool site that used to be at netmatics.net and I loved the route summarization tool.
    Is there a new link for the route summarization tool site?

      Like Jeff, I loved the subnet calculator that used to be available on your site. Do you have a new link for that as well? If not, I would love to find a way to see if you’d be willing to discuss how to get a copy of the tool.
