Area of Expertise: Avalanche, layer 4-7 and security testing.

Arnaud joined Spirent in 2003 as a Support Engineer after a few years in the Service (Steria) and then the video gaming (Ubisoft) industry. He then moved to a Professional Services position, delivering mostly Avalanche engagements, but also some Smartbits and Spirent TestCenter.

Today, Arnaud is a Business Development Engineer for Europe, Middle-East and Africa, assisting local Sales teams and customers for larger or critical projects. Another area of responsibility is the training of the EMEA System Engineers on newer features of Avalanche and related products – such as Spirent Text Expert, iTest and Automation.

As a video game enthusiast, Arnaud founded a couple of websites, such as WoW Bash (http://www.wowbash.com) and Factornews (http://www.factornews.com). He also has a personal blog for things related to networking, computers and similar (some might say “geeky”) topics.
