Beyond mere engineering

Finding the layout of a network, the What and How, is straightforward, as networks (usually) lean toward order. The hard work is uncovering the historical reasons behind the design (the Why).

The History of Why doesn’t get written down. Instead, it’s common knowledge, and lives in company memory. But, the Why reveals all: why the network is the way it is, how scalable it is, if it’s flexible, and whether it’s responsive to evolving business needs.

The network is no longer just an expense; it’s enabler of business, a competitive advantage, and done right, a bridge across and between organizations. Network engineering alone is not enough. You want to be a Network Bridgebuilder.
