Juan Fernandez, a network engineer in the Network Services group, shares lessons from the Army that have helped guide him in his work at MITRE. This is how MITRE network engineer Juan Fernandez describes his job: “Imagine that the internet is a highway, and the bits of data moving through it are cars on the road. Large companies, required to maintain their own networks of roads, have wider streets, with more cars and as such, a better chance of traffic jams.” Fernandez and his colleagues work to make sure all lanes stay open on MITRE’s superhighway, allowing the free flow of data among 9,000-plus employees across more than 60 sites. Ensuring fast and reliable network access is crucial to the success of our organization.
