What has been the most complex network system you have designed and installed?

Interviewers can usually tell from your resume the depth of your experience and knowledge. What they can't tell from the resume is the scope of these. Describing the largest or most complex network system you have worked on provides this information. It also helps the interviewer understand whether you're qualified to work in their network environment and have the experience to address the issues you're likely to encounter based on the complexity of their network infrastructure.
