Daniel Minoli

Daniel Minoli (born 1952) is a United States-based networking practitioner. He has many years of telecom, networking, and IT experience with enterprises, carriers, academia, and venture capitalists, including work at ARPA think tanks, Bell Telephone Laboratories, ITT, Prudential Securities, Bell Communications Research (Bellcore/Telcordia), AT&T, New York University (NYU), Rutgers, Stevens Institute, and Societe’ General de Financiament de Quebec (1975–2001).

Contents

Networking companies

Recently he played a founding role in the launching of two networking companies through the high-tech incubator Leading Edge Networks Inc., which he ran in the early 2000s: Global Wireless Services, a provider of broadband hotspot mobile Internet and hotspot VoIP services to high-end marinas; and, InfoPort Communications Group, an optical and Gigabit Ethernet metropolitan carrier supporting Data Center/SAN/channel extension and Grid Computing network access services (2001–2003).

Technical work

Minoli has worked extensively in the field of wireless. His work in wireless started in the mid-1970s with extensive efforts on ARPA-sponsored research on wireless packet networks. In the early 1980s he was involved in the design of high-resilience radio networks. In the mid-1980s he was involved in designing and deploying VSAT networks, including work on correlated traffic profiles. Recently he has been involved with the novel design for Wi-Fi hotspot networks for interference-laden public places such as marinas, and has written the first book on the market on hotspot networking, Hotspot Networks – WiFi for Public Access Locations (McGraw-Hill, 2003). He has also been involved with the planning and deployment of high-density enterprise IEEE 802.11b/g/e/i systems and VoWi-Fi. He recently also acted as expert witness for the winning party in a US$11,000 million lawsuit regarding a wireless Air-to-Ground communication system for airplane-based telephony and information services. He has also done work on wireless networking applications of nanotechnology (Quantum Cascade Lasers for Free Space Optics), and has just published a book on that topic with Wiley (2005).

Minoli is the author of a number of books (44) on Information Technology, telecommunications, and data communications. He has also written columns for ComputerWorld, NetworkWorld, and Network Computing (1985–1995). He has spoken at 77 industry conferences and he has taught at New York University (Information Technology Institute), Rutgers University, Stevens Institute of Technology, and Monmouth University (1984–2003). Also, he was a Technology Analyst At-Large for Gartner/DataPro (1985–2001). On their behalf, based on extensive hand-on work at financial firms and carriers, he tracked technologies and authored numerous CTO/CIO-level technical/architectural scans in the area of telephony and data communications systems, including topics on security, disaster recovery, IT outsourcing, network management, LANs, WANs (ATM and MPLS), wireless (LAN and public hotspot), VoIP, network design/economics, carrier networks (such as metro Ethernet and CWDM/DWDM), and e-commerce. Over the years he has advised venture capitalists for investments of US$150M in a dozen high-tech companies.

He is the co-inventor of the concept of "hyperperfect number."
