Current computing and communications networks are complex entities that have evolved piecemeal, layer upon layer, running multiple standards, and proprietary products. As a result, they often are brittle, inflexible, expensive to operate, and insecure. This talk will describe a patented and patent pending software overlay that makes them robust, flexible, secure, and cost effective.

Examples include the first: Cable Satellite net HBO; TSCI; Spacenet for the US government; Shared Automatic Teller Machine Network security; Early PC’s; Security system for US Federal Reserve; Handheld Expert System; Software Defined Radio;… He is current CTO of Bace Cyber Security Institute (BCI), and the founder & CTO of Orchestral Networks. He holds a BA in Broadcasting from SFSU, an MBA in Communications Management from Wharton, and a Ph.D. in Information Systems from Tohoku Imperial University in Japan.
