1. An Enterprise VPN > Conclusions

Conclusions

I started this engagement as a tribe of one, but when I got to the finish, I had adopted a new tribe; they were not network engineers or networking professionals, but salespeople and warehouse personnel. We worked together and completed the installation of a new communications backbone for the company that allowed it to grow and reach new heights.

Each engagement is different: you see different technologies and meet a world of different people. And often you find that folks who have no interest in data communications can be productive members of the tribe. The warehouse person in Jacksonville had no idea what an RJ48C connector was, but with a little instruction and patience, he was able to create a usable loopback jack for testing the T1 interfaces. I have no idea what he used to strip the patch cord or what he used to connect the wires together, but it worked and we got the silly thing up and running. I am sure that he does not consider himself part of the tribe, but I sure do.
