This is a space for the writing of Jason Gintert, a data networking professional of over 20 years. Starting out in the days of dial-up and frame relay, I was in the telecommunications service provider space for many of those 20 years. I'm co-founder & CTO of a company called WAN Dynamics, a Cleveland OH based managed and professional services firm focused on assisting companies adapt to modern cloud connectivity models. In my spare time, I am co-founder of the Ohio Networking User Group and Technical Steering & Marketing Committee member of the Ohio IX. With whatever time is left, I hang with my family, hike, play drums and skateboard. I have been fortunate to publish a few articles, be a participant in some panel discussions and also be a guest on network industry podcasts (find more info on those here). I am really into networking so not only is it a profession, but something a personal passion as well. I love pontificating on connectivity problems and solving them with elegant networking solutions.
