I have designed systems used for the processing and analysis of call records and have expertise experience in call record analysis. I also have extensive knowledge of systems used to determine user location and analysis of data used to determine user location, and, in addition to my extensive knowledge of communication systems (PSTN and PLMN/Cellular), I am knowledgeable in RFID systems and technologies as well. I have performed infringement analysis on hundreds of patents for such companies as IBM, Wistron, IPCom, VirnetX, and LSI Corp. This work required analysis of all 3GPP, 3GPP2, 802.11/Wi-Fi, and 802.15/Bluetooth technical standards.

This is a topic I have great expertise in. As Chief Technology Officer of the Enterprise business at Nortel from 2000-2009 and the VP of Technology Strategy and Innovation at Avaya through early 2012, I was actively involved in creating the VoIP industry and am generally regarded as one of the leading experts in the communications field. My primary work in the patent area was at these companies where I was responsible for the patent portfolio and managed the generation of over 1000 patents. I have managed many patents in areas related to this patent area and can work clearly in this space.
