developed the patents to create the clearest Voice Over Internet
(VoIP) Call, even clearer than the PSTN. I put the Proof-Of-Development
place in a network between Phoenix and Tucson, to prove my patents. My
algorithms worked and proved that VoIP is a viable solution if done

I also developed software and hardware systems for developing the next
generation of the II&T product portfolio. This involved a Security
