Expertise DescriptionI have more than 25 years of telecommunications industry experience, as a practitioner, academic, and independent consultant. My experience includes research, product design and technical analysis of high-speed data communications, wireless technology, computer telephony database, and computer telephony. I have over 15 years expert witness experience with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
Areas of Expertise
My expert witness experience includes: patent litigations; patent infringement; written reports on patent infringement, validity, written description, and enablement; breach of contract.
My consulting services include: assessment of complex telecommunications networks; reliability, availability, and performance analysis of digital and optical networks; traffic engineering, capacity planning, technical due-diligence; patent portfolio analysis; reviewed architecture, capacity, and potential bottlenecks of a multi-national broadband network; refined performance analyses for an optical switching technology; provided algorithms for networking sizing for a VOIP application.
I have worked extensively with packet switching and congestion control for much of my 35 years of experience in the telecommunications industry. During my 13-year tenure at a large Laboratory I was active in the research of packet switching networks, quality of service and congestion control. I am one of the inventors of the monitoring, marking and dropping of packets during congestion that led to the CLP bit in the ATM protocol and standards. After my 13-year tenure at the Laboratory, I have been an independent consultant doing both consulting and expert witness work. I have been retained on over 35 cases over the years, been deposed over 27 times, testified in court at a Markman hearing, and 1 jury trial.
