Bernd Spiess

Welcome to my personal homepage. This is just about myself - business - not family related.

What I do, What I did:

I am working as a consultant/engineer in internet and telecommunication since 2014. Starting in 1992 I was one of the founders of some Internet related companies in Austria; namely: HAPPYnet, ASCUS and i3B. My initial roles (beside being one of the owners/MD´s) were mainly the technical responsibilities, followed by leading staffed engineers, followed by working as the CTO of these companies.

Passion:

My passion is mainly about Internet engineering stuff and its strategic aspects. Peering, AS relations and IP latency is one of the main aspects here. I operate my own ASN for research and testing. Being part of the global ip community and learn from others is what inspires my.

Working Principles:

Doing what I have passion for is the main working principle. I like what I do and I do what I like is the basic fundament of my work. Lifelong learning is another one. A defined part of my work is dedicated to learning new stuff and learning from others.

Company:

My business "home-base" is my company called "ip-it consult GmbH". It was founded by me from scratch and is owned by me. It is registered as an "engineering office" (Ingenieurbüro) where I cover the role of being the needed "Consulting Engineer".
