Resiliency of our Internet Infrastructure during the COVID -19 Season

The intermittent ip networks and grid-power aside.

Am curious to know why in this day and time and day, we are still focusing
on vendor specific trainings.

During earlier 2000’s we focused so much on the Cisco’s, then somehow the
Junipers and today we are seeing the Huawei syntax.

Shouldn’t we be focusing in todays Africa on teaching standard protocols
even at a fundamental level and cocktail of vendors sythax rather than
continually pushing some specific vendors technology which indirectly
markets their kit as defacto to those we keep imbibing the skills too.

Just my thoughts….
