Genius Networks, a provider of global network services, has appointed networking veteran, Neill Bird as pre-sales consultant. Following a three year sabbatical involving travel across 49 countries, Neill fittingly joins the global network integrator with experience going back nearly 30 years.

Neill’s CV reads like a history of the WAN in the UK. Starting as a green 16 year old, Neill began with a 13 year stint on British Rail’s national network, considered the UK’s first WAN and a pioneer of fibre optics technology. Subsequent moves to Energis, InTechnology and Griffin all bear testament to Neill’s skills in the evolving markets for ATM then MPLS. Along the way, Neill even project-managed the first installation of Cat 6 in the UK. He is an Incorporated Engineer and Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology.

On joining Genius Networks, Neill said: “Reseller customers are demanding more speed and less delay. The big issue with voice is managing latency, particularly across global networks. Businesses are expanding internationally and demanding guaranteed service levels. This is where Genius scores and it’s typical of the leading edge solutions that Genius has planned for the coming years.

“It’s really exciting to be joining the vibrant team at Genius Networks that is providing resellers with top performance connectivity and the latest network services.”

James Arnold Roberts, Genius Networks director said: “Neill’s expertise and experience in networking is second to none. Our reseller partners will benefit from the advice he can provide on the best solutions to meet their customers’ needs. He will be a great asset to Genius Networks.”
