About Me

A CCIE-certified engineer (#48284 – Collaboration)…

I’d resisted the temptation to blog prior to passing my CCIE as I wanted to create a blog that was geared to more complex troubleshooting and architectural considerations for Cisco Unified Communications, as opposed to repeating the many blogs covering the lab scope, which is quite limiting and does not always have real-world application.  I have a real passion for SIP and love troubleshooting, and I hope that others can benefit from what I’ve learnt through practical hands-on experience in real-world situations.

Above all, I hope that my experiences can assist others to #dontcalltac.  I’ve learnt so much from working with TAC, but a whole lot bunch more when the temptation to get assistance was resisted! 🙂
