About PacketFlow.I/O

Thanks for stopping by. My name is Matt Haedo, and I’m a network engineer. I have roughly a decade of industry experience, most of which has been spent working for technology solution providers (VARs and MSPs). As a Senior Solutions Architect, I design a broad range of network and data center infrastructure solutions. These include campus LAN and WAN networks, data center infrastructure, wireless networks, and security solutions.

To me, technology is more than a career; it is a lifelong passion. I pride myself on a consultative approach to solution design and implementation, and I enjoy working with clients to build solutions to solve their problems.

Throughout my career, I’ve worked with technologies across multiple technology domains including networking, virtualization, storage, servers, and applications. I started as an IT generalist and worked to become a networking specialist. However, things in IT often come full circle, and I’m now in a position where I’m able to leverage my generalist background to build more tightly integrated solutions as we see concepts like SDN, NVF, IoT, orchestration, and automation move from the whiteboard to production infrastructure.

Working in IT, I often find myself searching the Internet to find solutions to problems I am trying to solve. More often than not, the best starting point ends up being a blog or forum of some sort. I started this blog as my small way of sharing knowledge with the community, in hopes I can help other engineers in the same way I've been helped by so many other bloggers.
