Marthin de Beer, SVP Emerging Business Group
Excellence in Collaboration for Service Provider Video TG
Daniel has successfully led several critical, highly visible efforts in EMC over the past quarter. First and foremost was resolving late surfacing emissions issues – under highly constrained conditions - for the Deutsche Telecom MR500 Satellite/IP Hybrid STB. This involved around the clock work for several weeks, full working weekends, coordination with teams in Atlanta (Cisco), Taipei (Unihan), and Darmstatt (DT/Cisco) as well as coordinating with external emissions facilities in all 3 locations. Daniel’s work ultimately discovered the root causes of the product issues and laid out the countermeasures we implemented for resolution. The successful launch of this product was highly dependent on his tireless work. Daniel was also key to resolving a potential emissions issue on the DDR2200 modem project. Daniel’s work in identifying product improvements has been key to keeping this product on track. Both of these issues have been handled while also maintaining progress and schedule on the highly important DVS 8KG8 program.
