I hired Anthony on a two part job about 12 months ago. First part included a design and implementation of the network for a facility that has about 2,000 end-points with several subnets and dozens of VLANs across the facility. Anthony has assisted us in countless emergencies at inconvenient hours. He never left us hanging!
