Title CEO and Co-Founder at Arktan, Inc.

Rahul Aggarwal is CEO and Co-Founder of Arktan, Inc.,[1] a company that develops real-time social and interactive technology used by brands, including Warner Music Group, Sony Music, Universal Music Group, TNT, TBS, ABC, CBS, NBC, Univision, A&E, WWE, The Washington Post, Bell Media, Toronto Star, and Sonos.[citation needed] Prior to Arktan, Rahul was a Distinguished Engineer at Juniper Networks[2] where he led the adoption of Internet routing technologies that he developed, and which are used across the industry. Rahul has played a significant role in the development of IP routing, MPLS, VPN and other data center technologies. Rahul is known for pioneering multicast in MPLS and BGP VPNs. He holds over 20 patents and over 25 Internet drafts and RFCs.

Career[edit]

Rahul Aggarwal started his career at Fore Systems in 1998 and then worked at Redback Networks where he was the primary MPLS architect on the SE800 platform.[3][4] While at Redback he co-invented Point-to-Multipoint MPLS RSVP-TE.[5] P2MP MPLS TE was the stepping stone in MPLS Multicast development and is widely deployed today by global Service Providers to transport broadcast video. Rahul Aggarwal joined Juniper Networks in 2003 and continued to pioneer P2MP RSVP-TE, which grew into RFC 4875, which he co-edited.[6]

After Juniper Networks, Rahul Aggarwal co-founded Arktan, Inc., where he is CEO and Co-Founder.

Rahul Aggarwal has significant innovations in the area of multicast in BGP/MPLS VPNs, which have been standardized in the IETF.[7] He has been granted several patents in the area of multicast in BGP/MPLS VPNs.[8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20]

Rahul is the co-author of several other IETF Internet drafts and RFCs in the areas of MPLS, IP Routing, VPNs and VPLS.[21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28]

Some of Rahul's other issued patents include.[29][30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37][38][39][40][41][42]

Education[edit]

Rahul Aggarwal received a B.E. in Electronics and Communication from the [[Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee]]. He received his M.S. in Computer Science from the [[University of Minnesota]] in 1998.[3]
