Expert Witness No. 121


Ph.D. Operations Research, University of Delaware, Newark, DE, 1981 

Dissertation analyzed stop-and-wait retransmission protocol for data integrity where the error environment is highly correlated; was published as a monograph in the Research Notes in Mathematics series of Pitman Books Limited, London, 1982

Dissertation contained the first general proof that the key transform matrix involved in solving stochastic models of the “M/G/1 Type” was the unique minimal solution to a non-linear matrix functional equation

Professional Experience

1998 - Present - A Private Consulting Company NJ

Consulting Company provides technical consulting services to client’s worldwide.  The company’s services include the assessment of complex telecommunications networks; reliability, availability and performance analysis of digital and optical networks; traffic engineering; capacity planning; technical due-diligence; patent portfolio analysis and expert witness services.

1994 - 1998 – IsoQuantic Technologies L.L.C. (IQ Tech), Ocean, NJ

Provides a family of wireless telecommunications and analytical products, plus a comprehensive range of engineering consulting services, including technology training.  The company is positioned to support telecommunications network architecture, design, and analysis needs in the areas of modern telecommunications systems (e.g., cellular, satellite, GSM, PCS) to the public with dramatic cycle time reductions. 

1994 – Motorola, Inc., Chandler AZ

General performance analysis for the Iridium™ Low-Earth Orbit satellite system. In response to a discovery that the switching fabric in production was not “non-blocking” as originally believed, Expert designed a real-time resource allocation algorithm to operate on-board the satellite vehicle that could recover the potential capacity loss. This algorithm avoided a costly hardware redesign saving more than $50M and is currently implemented on board the Iridium™ satellites.

1981 - 1994 – Bell Telephone Laboratories, Holmdel, NJ

During his thirteen year tenure, Dr. Lucantoni was involved in several projects dealing with leading edge technology, including: Broadband ISDN/ATM, Algorithmic Solutions to Stochastic Models, Queueing Theory, and Applied Prob ­ability, Variable-Bit-Rate Video, Packetized Voice and Data, Wideband Packet Technology, LAPD Frame Relay, Packet Switching, Digital Switch Performance, Cellular Phone Technology (AMPS)

Teaching Experience

Stevens Institute of Technology, 1991-93

Adjunct Professor, Computer Science, Hoboken, NJ 

Taught graduate level courses in Probability and Stochastic Processes Patents

Novel congestion control techniques for Broadband ISDN/ATM involving traffic monitoring and tagging as well as selective cell discard during congestion resulted in two patent awards (with A.E.Eckberg, D.T. Luan, and T.J. Schonfeld).

The ideas behind these patents have been incorporated into the international standards for ATM switches.

The patents are now the property of Lucent Technologies.
