Benny has been in the networking field since 1998, and has worked extensively with baseband and broadband communications. He worked in Healthcare IT for 16 years before transitioning to NICS in September of 2011. At NICS, Benny supported the University of Tennessee “Kraken” supercomputer for over 5 years. In April of 2015 he joined the networking team within NCCS, which maintains all aspects of LAN/WAN security, design, procurement, installation, and maintenance of internal infrastructure to support the supercomputing resources of the division. The networking team is primarily open source with respect to network management and monitoring systems, employing Linux-based services requiring an in-depth knowledge of Linux and scripting techniques. Maintaining a high speed, redundant network infrastructure is the primary responsibility of the team.

EdgeTeam Co-Lead

Benny is Co-Lead of the SCinet EdgeTeam. We are volunteers that our organizations loan to IEEE to provide the design, procurement and installation of the Super Computing show that occurs every year in various cities in November each year. My team provides wired and wireless connectivity to all vendor participates and tutorial locations around the convention center. This work necessitates 3 weeks on site work during the show and several trips through the year to meet, design and procure the necessary hardware. During SC week our network has several 100 gigabit paths to external services making it the fastest in the world.
