About the Author:

Tom Thomas, CCIE No. 9360, claims he never works because he loves what he does. When you meet him, you will agree!

 

Throughout his many years in the networking industry, Tom has taught thousands of people how networking works and the secrets of the life of a packet. Tom is the author or coauthor of 18 books on networking, including the acclaimed OSPF Network Design Solutions, published by Cisco Press and now in its second edition. Beyond his many books, Tom also has taught computer and networking skills through his roles as an instructor and training-course developer.

 

In addition to holding the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) certification–the pinnacle of networking certifications–Tom holds Cisco CCNP Security, CCDA, and CCNA certifications and is a certified Cisco Systems instructor (CCSI). These certifications support his industry-proven, problem-solving skills through technical leadership with demonstrated persistence and the ability to positively assist businesses in leveraging IT resources in support of their core business. He has also completed his Master of Science degree in network architecture and is looking at a doctorate next.

 

Tom currently is the CIO of Qoncert, a Cisco Gold Partner in Southern Florida that has an affiliated arm known as CCPrep.com, a Cisco Learning Partner, where he provides strategic direction and a little hands-on for customers of all types.

 

Donald Stoddard began his career in information technology in 1998, designing networks and implementing security for schools in North Dakota and South Dakota. He then went on to design and implement Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for a firm in Denver, Colorado. While there, he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in computer information systems management from Colorado Christian University. From Colorado, he then moved south, learned the ins-and-outs of Cisco VoIP, and began working through designing and securing VoIP solutions throughout the southeast. Don holds Microsoft MCSA and Linux+ and Security+ certifications and is presently wading through the CISSP material.

 

Currently, Don works for the Department of the Navy as the Information Assurance Officer for one of the premier Navy research and development labs, where he provides certification and accreditation guidance for the various projects being developed for implementation and deployment.
