1998-1999 Director, Wireless Broadband Access – Bell Communications Research
Successfully led marketing and business development for Bellcore to promote its offering of fixed wireless broadband access (18 to 40 GHz) including Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS). Created a successful market strategy for Bellcore to launch, promote, and sell its service offerings and tools. This included creating collateral material (both technical and marketing), sponsoring conferences, aggressive advertising, and other activities that led to successful sales results. Grew Bellcore’s wireless broadband business from launch to a multi-million dollar business in less than a year. Technical emphasis was given to data and video services.
Held technical management and business development responsibilities with focus on international markets and projects in the areas of local loop access, specifically Full Service Networks, interactive multimedia services, systems integration, wireless access (LMDS and MMDS), Digital Subscriber Line technologies (xDSL), FTTP, and Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC). Managed various projects with RBOCs, North American LECs, CATV operators, equipment suppliers, and international PTTs. Projects included performing competitive analyses and business cases for CLECs, technical and economics comparison of broadband access architectures, delivery of video services, plant assessment (present versus future methods of operations), regulatory and technical impact of open network architectures on broadband access, and comparison of various ATM options for FTTP systems.

1994-1995 Senior Systems Engineer - Network Technology - Bellcore
Lead engineer on multiple teams providing consulting services focusing on the network platforms that offer broadband services to residential and business end-users. Areas of work included consulting on end-to-end systems engineering for video transmission, HFC and FTTP architectures, powering, traffic engineering, multiple access protocols (Slotted ALOHA and TDMA), and voice frequency analog transmission. Customers for these consulting services included both traditional (RBOCs) and nontraditional clients (small LECs, CATV providers, Power Utility companies).
Other responsibilities included managing a group of 6 engineers to provide consulting on video and telephony for broadband access systems including ADSL, FTTP, and HFC.
1989-1993 Member of the Technical Staff - Network Transmission Technology - Bellcore
Leader of the team that planned and executed the updating of the FTTP requirements document (TR-909) to include requirements that enable the delivery of broadband video services. TR-909 was the first system-level generic requirements documents for Fiber-in-the-Loop (FITL) systems that provide narrowband services like POTS, ISDN, and video services. Authored many sections including synchronization, powering, electromagnetic compatibility, and physical design; co-authored sections on availability and reliability and video modulation techniques.
Responsible for Bellcore's technical involvement in all national and international standards deliberating FTTP system issues. Authored more than 10 key technical contributions for ITU-T. Elected Editor for the ITU-T FTTP Recommendation (ITU-T SG 15/24).
1988-1989 Member of the Technical Staff - Network Transmission Technology - Bellcore
Responsibility included developing operations and maintenance functions across the Broadband ISDN User Network Interface (UNI) for SONET/SDH and ATM transport. Proposed a new function across the UNI, the Line Layer Far End Block Error, which received national as well as international acceptance and was incorporated in related ANSI standards and ITU recommendations. Authored or co-authored over 50 technical contributions on the definition of the Broadband ISDN UNI and ATM. These contributions were accepted in US national standards as well as the ITU. Was editor for the Physical Layer Standard in T1E1 and held many leadership positions, such as chairing ad-hoc and drafting groups and providing technical liaison between T1S1 and T1E1.
1986-1988 Member of the Technical Staff - Power Systems - Bellcore
Responsible for generating technical requirements for telecommunications power and electrical protection equipment, evaluating the impact of emerging telecommunications technology on Central Office power and battery requirements, and analyzing power and protection equipment.
1985-1986 Power Design Engineer - Transformer and Power Supply Division - Preferred Electronics
Led a small team to design custom power supplies and magnetics. Had full project responsibility for the design, packaging, testing, and quality assurance for linear, ferro-resonnant, and high-frequency switchmode power supplies. Developed a patented feedback stability circuit for ferro-resonant power supplies. Customers for these projects included computer, telecommunications and consumer product manufacturers.
1985-1986 Lecturer in Electrical Engineering -
Responsible for teaching Senior Electrical Engineering courses in Circuit Analysis and Communications Theory.
