Author Biography - Paul Bedell

Paul Bedell obtained an M.S. in Telecommunications Management, with distinction, from Chicago's DePaul University in 1994. In 1995, Bedell designed and has since taught a course on cellular and wireless telecommunications at DePaul University in the Graduate School of Computer Science, Telecom, and Information Systems. He began his telecommunications career in the United States Army Signal Corps, serving in (West) Germany from 1985 to 1988, where he worked as a multichannel communications equipment operator at a remote signal site. Upon discharge in 1988, Bedell spent five years working for several Fortune 500 companies as a telecommunciations analyst. From there, he moved to the wireless industry, where he spent five years working for three leading wireless carriers in both the celluarl and PCS industries. He spent two-and-a-half years as a network engineer for United States Cellular. During that time, he designed and implemented fixed and interconnection networks in most regions of the United States. He then moved to PrimeCo Personal Communications, where he managed the build out of the prelaunch fixed network for the metro portion of PrimeCo's Chicago market. Bedell then moved to Aerial Communications (which is now known as T-Mobile), where he designed and managed the build out of Aerial's prelaunch wide area network (WAN). Bedell moved to Ameritech's long-distance business unit in 1998, Ameritech Communications, Inc. (ACI), where he managed the implementation of ACI's 42-node data network, which supported its new 2,500-mile SONET system that spanned the five Ameritech states. Paul also installed two voice over IP (VoIP) networks at ACI before moving into Data Network Product Marketing in August 2000. Since August 2000, he has been the Associate Director of Product Marketing at SBC Communications, managing a metro area Ethernet product known as GigaMAN(sm). Bedell managed the expansion of the product into the Pacific Bell and Southwestern Bell territories. GigaMAN was originally introduced by SBC in the Ameritech region in 1999.
