My name is Jerome Tissieres, I live in Switzerland, Europe. Welcome to my blog!

I am a network engineer with over 25 years of experience in enterprise, services providers, and data-center networking.

I write here about Cisco, Meraki, Huawei, Mellanox, Cumulus-Linux, and other network systems. The related software for network planning, design, operations, troubleshooting, and automation. And also from my learning experiences in networking, software scripting, and cloud solutions. I also write about the network engineering career in general. All opinions expressed on this blog are my own and do not reflect the views of my current or past employer.
