Telecommunications Engineer

Hello!!!

My name is Gabriel King, and I have been working in the vast field of "Telecommunications" for over 20 years. I started out as a contractor installing network cable in large enterprise environments. From there, I eventually worked and succeeded in acquiring my BICSI RCDD certification. From there, I started working with several different VoIP vendors and manufacturers, and am now responsible for a large enterprise VoIP phone system consisting of over 12,000 users. My skills range widely including VoIP, TDM, fiber optics, paging, CATV, construction design, and many more. Throughout my years, I have spent an enormous amount of time researching and learning new things. What bugged me most throughout my research, was when I found training materials that were not step by step, or incomplete. That is why I design my courses to be simple, and easy to follow. Thank you for taking the time to read my bio, and I wish you success in your VoIP endeavors.
