Wireless Engg / Trainer / Technical content creator

What I believe in is that knowledge sharing is a way to reach immortality !

With CCNP Security, Network +, CWNA and ITIL Foundations under my belt I am a networking enthusiast with an experience of 6+ years on a wide variety of security and wireless products.

It all started, when I started to wonder why the LEDs on the switch ("box with ports" what I used to call it, back in the day) blink? What is inside this box? What does it do?

Till present, I have gained experience in the following fields and products:

6+ years of experience in networking.
> AAA - Radius and Tacacs+
> Cisco ACS 4.x-5.x, Cisco ISE, Microsoft IAS/NPS
> Basics of switching and routing
> Mojo WIPS and Access Points
> Core wireless concepts
> ASA firewall basics and Cisco VPN configuration
> Ironport WSA basics
> Wired and Wireless Dot1x Deployments
> Active Directory - DNS, AD DS Basics
> PKI
> LDAP
> Authentication integration with RSA, Microsoft AD, Novell LDAP

I have also trained/mentored many individuals throughout my tenure. Technical training is my expertise.
