Biography

As chair of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee from 1996–2000, chair of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC6 and President of the IEEE Standards Association, James T. Carlo’s leadership and contributions have benefited the global community by helping enable the information technology revolution.

Dr. Carlo’s success stems from a determination to drive technical consensus in a fair, open, honest, ethical and even-handed approach. During his term, the 802.11 Wi-Fi and 802.3 Gigabit Internet standards were published, the Bluetooth specification was brought into the IEEE and the 802.16 activity that has become the basis for the multibillion-dollar worldwide deployment of WiMAX technology was initiated. Perhaps his greatest contribution to standardization was his leadership in the development of the 802.5 standard for token ring LANSs that overcame the interoperability problems of the previous version of the standard. Dr. Carlo is a coauthor of Understanding Token Ring Protocols and Standards.

An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Carlo was the president of J. Carlo Consulting LLC, Dallas, Texas. Dr. Carlo passed away on February 14th, 2012 after a long battle with cancer.
