Relevant Experiences

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.
