Meet the author
Ben Jacobson has seven years experience in the IT industry, with three years focused on network engineering. He's always had a passion for networking and a desire to learn what makes devices talk to each other — and how those communications are appropriately routed through the bundles of wire and fiber in our walls, under the ground and over our heads.
He's worked in and designed networks for small, medium and large business environments using a variety of vendor devices. He currently works as an engineer designing solutions for a government-owned, state-wide fiber optic network, and he loves it every day.
