Ryan Huff
Enthusiast
My name is Ryan Huff and I have been involved with computer technology since I was 13 years old. I started on a Packard Bell 286 in the early 90’s where I began to learn computer programming (Turbo Pascal, Fortran and C). At heart I am a technologist and an inventor. For me, technology is a term that loosely describes an adult sized Construx set full of pieces and parts begging to be put together and made to talk to one another. Somewhere along the way in my career I was introduced to the world of Cisco Systems and all their various products. I started with routing and switch and I found that to be really interesting and curious; routing in particular because of the odd behaviors that it can sometimes take on. It was around this time that I started to get involved with Cisco’s flavor of Unified Collaboration and I became more intrigued than I had been with routing and switching. I think it’s because Unified Collaboration takes me back to that space where I get to make different things talk to one another, especially when doing interoperability deployments. Biography from communities: My name is Ryan Huff and I have been involved with computer technology since I was 13 years old. I started on a TRS-80 and Commodore 64 in the 80's where I began to learn computer programming (BASIC and later on Turbo Pascal, Fortran and C) and running my very own TriBBS (bulletin board system). At heart I am a technologist and an inventor. I think my origin story is similar to others who spent their childhood during the dawn of the Internet age.When I think back to childhood, I don't recall thinking anything particular or special about the computing industry. Looking back now though, I realize I was a participant in a period of great technological revolution that will forever be penned in history. My core focus is in voice and collaboration technologies and that interest really hasn't waned. Staying true to my technologist roots, I will deviate into the occasional side-interest (such as holographic video conferencing, quantum computing and hoverboards) but I've never moved away from telephony and voice technologies. For me, technology is a term that loosely describes an adult sized Construx set full of pieces and parts begging to be put together. That is the number one reason that I am so interested in voice and collaboration technologies, because it is really just a bunch of pieces and parts that can be put together to a bunch of different and amazing things. Not only do I have a true passion for voice and collaboration technologies, I LOVE to teach the technologies, I really enjoy helping others succeed with the technology that I am passionate about. For me, working in the technology industry has never been about achieving a certain status or level, it has always been about learning the next thing, 'what can I learn today'. And more specifically, 'what problem can I solve today'. Like many folks in this business, I learn so much more from problem solving than I do from reading the instruction manual. Expertise: Cisco Collaboration, SIP, TDM, CUCM, CUC, Expressway, Spark, CCX, Finesse, CUBE, CUBE-HA, 4k ISR, IOS-XE, Analog Voice, FXS, FXO, Voice Gateway, Jabber, IM and Presence, UCS Servers
