As a member of the AT&T Foundry team, Carl helps create collaborative environments at a rapid pace by designing and building prototypes and demos for Foundry stakeholders. In one recent project, for example, he evaluated video analysis options intended to improve the value and usability of cameras used in Digital Life, AT&T’s residential security and home automation product. In 2015, Carl managed a three-site test installation of low-power/wide-area radio systems intended for use in the “Internet of Things.” Current project areas include virtual mobile networking, and multi-access edge computing.
Carl joined BellSouth in 1986, where he worked on a variety of telecommunications networks, equipment, standards, and applications. When BellSouth merged with AT&T in 2006, Carl’s work shifted to the IPTV area, where he worked on the development of prototype and production applications for U-verse, AT&T’s Internet Protocol television product.
Innovation has always been an important part of Carl’s life. He hosted a weekly internal innovation session from 2001 to 2014, and holds multiple patents in the telecommunications field.
Carl earned a Bachelor of Science in Physics and a Master of Science in Information and Computer Science, both from Georgia Tech.
Carl enjoys woodworking and boating, but his principal hobby is music; he plays guitar, electric bass, and upright bass.
