Swen Wulf joined PS Lightwave as Network Architect and Security Manager in 2014 after working for Phonoscope Enterprises Group as Network Security Manager since 2002. With over 20 years in the IT world, Swen has extensive experience and knowledge of IP networks. Having worked at Solid Systems and Network Oil, Swen knows both sides of the Information Technology relationship and has a personal understanding how important it is that the customers’ servers are running and their network is secure.
He finds interest in the open source software scene. “The concept of many different skilled programmers working together on a project to improve software is amazing. There is so much talent out there.” The network world is full of specialization, and Mr. Wulf has a good all-around understanding of it. He can troubleshoot a Linux box having an issue one day, and a packet loss on a private Ethernet circuit the next.
In March of 2017, Mr. Wulf was promoted from Network Architect and Security Manager to Director of Network Operations. In his new role, Mr. Wulf will have management and oversight of network design and provisioning for new and existing services. He’ll manage the design and equipment requirements for strategic network planning, and oversee network documentation procedures and documentation of existing network elements. Mr. Wulf will lead his team with full oversight of all Tier 3 support, and strategic planning of data service delivery and data electronic equipment budgeting for maintenance.
