Sometimes I think that 35 years in computing, software, semiconductors and telecoms has taught me very little. When I was much younger, I was in awe of some of my technology and business elders as they always seem to have all the answers. I looked forward to the day that I would have that same experience, knowledge and ability to always know what to do and how to do it.

In reality, as I get older I realise that there is still so much to know, still so much to learn and a world that changes so rapidly that being that expert in everything is an impossibility. I only hope that whatever I do and choose to say, someone, somewhere can benefit and at least find it interesting.

I have found that the most interest in the blog lies in overviews of technology and companies. I guess this may not be a blog in the conventional sense as I have found that ‘news’ has a half life of a week – so I will leave that to others in this information overloaded life we now all lead.

    Just touching base after a conversation with Chris Phoenix.. 🙂 Nice pragmatic blog by the way…

    Read your piece about ADSL bonding – probably worth adding that there have been a bunch of single provider MLPPP services in the UK for a while – Nildram amongst them – but as a user the economics of bonding and costs of refiling the traffic via a third party need to be stood up against a simpler load balancing solution..

    Anyway, hope you are well…

    Best regards

    best regards,

  3. Your “about” sums up very elegantly what so many feel but so few are prepared to admit publicly. Thanks for your efforts. To describe your writing as mildly interesting would be too mild a choice of words! Keep up the good work.

    You’re a SEO master… I just hit PBB-TE and PBT and your blog has the top spot on Google… I’d like to brief you on a n announcement that will be made next Tuesday that settles the PBT or MPLS debate… We can interwork both and eliminate the lack of control plane program in a multipoint to mulitpoint scenario…

    Can we brief you Monday any time?

    Dear Chris,

    I am a graduate research student at the University of Texas at Dallas, USA. My research work focuses on re-optimization strategies of LSPs using a PCE based network architecture.

    I have been trying to find out companies which are actively involved in this technology. However, I have been able to locate only a handful. I would highly appreciate if you could kindly guide me in targeting the right companies.

    I am very keen in pursuing a career in the field of computer networking.

    Thanks in advance,
