Routermonkey (noun)

A person who’s vocation centers on design and/or maintenance of internetworking infrastructure which generally consists of; data routers, switches and firewalls.

The routermonkey is typically very curious regarding “cause and affect relationships” (example – If I remove this route… what will break) they tend to be very clandestine by nature, usually only associating with the IT uber class. A routermonkey very rarely will speak to an actual “end user” as their social skills are poor. A routermonkey’s vocabulary consists of mostly acronyms and routinely attempt to explain binary to decimal conversion and the like, generally placing their audience into a hypnotic like state. If forced to explain details of network related tasks to a outsider – most routermonkey’s resort to drawing pictures using a program called “Visio”.

Routermonkey’s covet internetworking industry certifications such as:
CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate)
CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional)
And the routermonkey holly grail being CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert)
