The Brief Introduction Section
My name is Scott McDermott. I’m a network engineer with over 20 years in IT, much of it as a sysadmin. This is where I write (mostly) about data networking. My focus is on enterprise networks and Wi-Fi, though I do end up wearing a lot of hats as a senior technical resource.
The Certifications Section
Behold, my certification logos. I post them here because it’s the only place I have to put them.
The Disclaimers and Disclosures Section
What I post here is my opinion. I am sometimes wrong. Feel free to let me know about these occurrences. Be nice. If you aren’t nice, I reserve the right to ignore you.
I sometimes use affiliate links when I link to products. This helps defray the costs of web hosting, which makes my finance manager (aka, my wife) happy.
Vendors from time to time may provide me with equipment, software, or other materials of some value. I will include specific disclaimers in blog posts related to these.
I am a member of the Cisco Champions program. Through this program I receive access to products, a nice polo shirt, and other small considerations. Cisco Champions are passionate about Cisco and enjoy sharing our knowledge, expertise, and thoughts across the social web and with Cisco. I am not a representative of Cisco and my views as a Cisco Champion are still my own.
