Welcome to TheTelecomBlog.com. This blog is written by a number of Telecom enthusiasts and guest bloggers, and edited by Jeff Wiener, President of Digitcom.ca.
About Jeff Wiener:
I spend my work days running Digitcom.ca, a Telecom company operating from Toronto, Canada. I have been in the Telecom business since 1991 selling and servicing voice and data solutions to the SMB market space. I started as a field technician – did that for 6 months and realized I wasn’t smart enough to install and support product in the field, so, I got into sales !
I spend my spare time with my family, wife, and 2 kids. I enjoy water skiing, although unfortunately the Canadian weather isn’t that conducive to outdoor water sports. I spend the other part of my limited spare time reading technical and business publications, and the little spare time that’s left writing blog posts for TheTelecomBlog.com. I also sit on the Avaya IOC Advisory council – if you deal with Avaya products and have some product suggestions then drop me a line.
I’m going to take a North American approach to the views, posts, and opinions.
I can be reached by phone at: (416) 783-7890 X 201, or by email at: jw [at] digitcom.ca.
