About Us > Jody Lemoine

Jody Lemoine

Network Greasemonkey, Packet Macrame Specialist, Virtual Pneumatic Tube Transport Designer, and Connectivity Nerfherder. The possible titles are too many to count, but they don’t really mean much when he's essentially a hired gun in the wild west that is modern networking. Jody Lemoine is based in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada, and operates tishco networks, a consulting firm specializing in the wholesale provisioning of networking services to IT firms for resale to their respective clientele. Over his career, he has developed a track record designing and deploying a wide variety of successful networking solutions in areas of routing, switching, data security, unified communications, and wireless networking. These range from simple networks for small-to-medium business clients with limited budgets to large infrastructure VPN deployments with over 450 endpoints. His broad experience with converged networks throughout Canada and the world have helped answer many complex requirements with elegant, sustainable, and scalable solutions. In addition, Jody maintains current Cisco CCDP and CCIE R&S (41436) certifications. Outside of the realm of IT, he is both a husband and father. In what meagre time remains, he contributes to the community by serving as an RCAF Reserve Officer, supporting his local squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets as their Commanding Officer.
