30 Days of Geek - Day 12 - What area do you want to expand your skills into?

This is an easy one. Data Communications.

The world we live in is pushing more and more demand on fast and reliable communication for computers and automation systems. Applications are pushing for 1GbE and even 10GbE speeds, which means backbone networks need to keep up and reach 100Gb and 1Tb. Reliable communication and address space exhaustion are currently number one issues for customers and new technologies are being implemented every day to combat this (IPv6, MPLS, HSRP).

More and more everyday tasks are being moved onto the internet, eg VoIP pushing the demand higher and higher.

Data communications is an ever growing field that is easy to be left behind in, and it’s something that I want to be apart of.
