Have you ever thought about why we so often come down on engineers and IT guys? We didn't hold a secret meeting and vote to pick on you for our amusement. It's because of a pattern that has been established.
I've never claimed to be a networking expert. But I do have a working understanding. That's the difference in a CI and all other trades. We have to understand all of the subsystems. Audio, hvac, electrical, networking, and in some cases plumbing. And ultimately, I understand to keep my hands off of the other contractors systems.
And not enough people do.
