In my new position as Chief Architect – Worldwide Public Safety Solution for Avaya, I will define the fundamental architectures and strategic direction Avaya takes globally to ensure a consistent, standards based approach is followed for customer and government implementations with a focus on Next Generation Emergency Services, regardless of where they are deployed.
I continue to represent Avaya through participation in industry organizations such as NENA, EENA, APCO and the NG9-1-1 Institute by participation on technical workgroups and committees that refine standards for the evolution of emergency services globally.
In 2013, I represented Avaya on the President's NSTAC Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network Research Subcommittee (NPSBN-RS) and was invited to participate on the APCO International Standards Development Committee.
Augmenting my work around Public Safety, I also manage the Avaya Podcast Network (APN) producing live and prerecorded content from industry events worldwide, as well as several specialized series. In 7 months, this new media outlet on technology captured a worldwide fan base with downloads exceeding 520,000 including nearly 60,000 for large events such as INTEROP and the Avaya Evolutions series, and over 105,000 at the NENA event in Charlotte.
I am joined by CoHost and LatAm Correspondent Guadalupe Hugony (@GuadalupeHugony) who delivers content in Spanish and Portuguese for our Latin American audience, and the official APN announcer is none other than Spyder Harrison (@SpyderHarrison) from Sirius XM Satellite Radio, an old colleague of mine from my younger days working for Spyder at Central Florida's 'Hot Rockin' Y106' in Orlando in the early 80's.
