Rob Rademakers

Network Infrastructure Consultant

My name is Rob Rademakers and I live in the province "Limburg" in the south of the Netherlands.

I have worked as a network infrastructure consultant for Open Line Consultancy in the Netherlands since 2007, I started at Open Line right after my graduation. I mostly working on integrating customers to/with (our) data centers.

I am Cisco certified as CCNP Security and I've a lot of Cisco Specialist certifications. Mostly in the datacenter networking area. At this moment, I'm also studying for the CCIE R&S lab exam. Besides these certifications, I have experience in designing datacenter networks and architectures, with products and technologies like Nexus 1000v, 2000, 5000, 7000, ASR, Catalyst etc.

At work, I like to help colleagues, customers and all other people to gain more understanding about the products and technologies used in the datacenters. I do this mostly in person, but I also blog on www.infraworld.eu and I can be reached on twitter: @Rademakersrob.
