Welcome! And it’s time you parted with your desk phone!

Hello and welcome to my IT blog.  My name is Paul Maggs and I am a Lead Systems Engineer residing in Melbourne, Australia.  I have 16 years IT experience and in that time I have spent many hours toiling over problems that required a fix.  

I began my IT career in 1999 working for a financial services firm for a short time and then moved to one of Australia’s top legal firms.  Initially I was a generalist working within the server environment including Novell and Microsoft technologies however over time I expanded my interests and had an opportunity to work with many technologies and deliver many successful projects.  

A few things I have designed, implemented, and maintained over the years –

  • Active Directory
  • PKI
  • Microsoft Exchange
  • Microsoft OCS & Lync
  • Microsoft Threat Management Gateway
  • Cisco Call Manager

My main focus these days Unified Communications and it’s an area I am very passionate about.  I could spend hours talking about the subject especially the many benefits of soft phones (hence the blog name). 

I had been wanting to start a technology blog for some time and it’s here I’ll detail my findings and a few solutions to any interesting IT problems that may present themselves. 

Outside of IT I love playing loud drums and I am a massive Utah Jazz supporter.  I watch every game and have converted the entire family (they had no choice really!!!).  Argue basketball with me at your own peril.  

Expect this blog to evolve as I get more comfortable adding content.  It’s a little sparse at the moment however I hope to change that as time goes by.
