Matt Bolick has worked in Technical Marketing at Cisco in RTP for the last 23 years running an obstacle course of technologies including SNA, ATM and Ethernet switching, Service Provider Aggregation, Metro Ethernet, Network Management and Enterprise Branch Architectures. He also worked on a wide variety of products no longer shipping including the Cisco 7500, 7200, Lightstream 1010, Catalyst 8540 & 5500, Cisco ASR, and Cisco ISRs before finally settling down for the last several years as a Technical Marketing Leader for the IoT group at Cisco working on Industrial switching, routing and wireless as well as other cool technologies like LoRaWAN and wireless mesh. Matt is also a father of 2 small kids (Sebastian is 5 and Moxie is 2) so he doesn’t get a lot of free time. When he does manage to escape you might be able to find him in the water or the sky. He’s both an avid SCUBA diver and private pilot; both places with lousy Wi-Fi.
