International College's CIO was rip out all of the old cat-3 and coax
wires on campus and the equipment that relied on those wires. Then, he
replaced the Springfield, MA-based college's entire infrastructure
with state-of-the-art wireless options. After all, he said, if you
don't have a secure, reliable, high-speed core infrastructure, "you
can't do a thing.""This holds true in corporate America, in education, and everywhere,"
said Seretta. "A lot of organizations forget this fact and wind up
with poor infrastructure, ineffective networking security, and stuff
crashing all around them."Even worse, some opt to "layer" new equipment and software on top of

consultingWhen you meet with a potential client, you should think about more than just how to meet their project needs; you should also listen and watch for cues that will help you determine if you actually want to work for that client. So how can you spot a problem client?
