Anthony has a successful career building and implementing large, distributed complex systems. He studied distributed and parallel systems at University of Colorado, where he earned his graduate degree in Computer Science. Gaining experience in the semiconductor industry, he was introduced to high levels of automation early in his career. He has combined those experiences architecting solutions and managing teams that engaged in building globally distributed automated systems for one of the world's largest telecommunications networks. That wealth of experience in technology and people management is now being applied to develop advanced Machine-to-Machine (M2M) capabilities. Anthony's interest in technology was developed early on as his father headed the Polymer Engineering department at Bell Labs Murray Hill during the 70's and 80's. That experience provided access to the very first personal computers and ARPANet. He took advantage of his technological surroundings and leveraged them into an impressive knowledge base that is difficult to match.

The OTP, or One-Time Pad, also known as the Vernam cipher, is, according to the NSA, "perhaps one of the most important in the history of cryptography."

Communication was expensive and difficult in the age of telegrams, and few messages were easily encrypted. more
