About Me

Niall Donaghy: Network Engineer, Linux, Python & OSS fan. To find out what others are saying, check out my LinkedIn profile.



I’m currently employed by DANTE, Cambridge, UK as a Lead Network Engineer on the Network Management team. My career at DANTE began during my sandwich year placement, when I was employed as a Tier 2 NOC Engineer.

DANTE’s primary activity is supporting the Guinness World Record setting pan-European research and education backbone network known as GÉANT. The network was built using Infinera DTN-X DWDM transmission equipment and Juniper MX-series routers. We light 50,000km of dark fibre and offer n x 100G connections to our customers, who in turn serve over 50M users.  To view topology maps, click here.
