My passions include Infrastructure Evolution, Consumable Technology &Mentoring. I’m a #StoryTeller & #PeopleSwitch (like a packet switch). I’m on Twitter, LinkedIn, Mastodon & SubStack.

I’m a Distinguished Engineer in the Cisco Networking Hardware team. I had key roles in the development of the UADP ASIC family, & the hugely successful Catalyst 9K platforms that use it.

I chair the Ethernet Alliance. I’m active in IEEE 802.3. I was Chair of the NBASE-T Alliance from its inception until its merger with the Ethernet Alliance.

I’m a Cisco Live Distinguished Speaker (Peter@Live), I speak in other forums including Tech Field Day, CHI-NOG, BICSI, IWCS. I’ve done pod/vodcasts for groups including Ethernet Alliance, NBASE-T, Packet Pushers, Rule11 & Cabling Installation & Maintenance. I host the Ethernet Alliance “Voices of Ethernet” series. Here’s a playlist of some YouTube videos, one for some podcasts/vodcasts, a linktree version of the list, & a #WeAreCisco profile.
